Seems Like Yesterday

50 years ago (1963)
Partners who had formed the new Axel-Price Auto Sales at 25th Street and Broadway, the former location of Root Motors, were Axel Honigbaum and Cliff Price, both of Lake Forest Park. Others working for the firm were Tom Browitt, Dick Burch, Don Files, Vern Tuininga and Tony Orthund.

Twelve volumes of the Encyclopedia Britannica "Great Books for Children" were awarded to Pat Bruland, 12, yesterday as national winner of the Young Hobby Club cookie counting contest. The daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Ken Bruland, she would enter Olympic View Junior High as a seventh-grader this fall.

25 years ago (1988)
A 95-unit housing complex for senior citizens would be built in the city's north end as the result of the council's rezone approval. The Windsor Park Retirement Community would be located between the new Fred Meyer store and 48th Avenue NE, south of 100th Street NE.

Brain Hageman, of Whidbey Island, carried a bucket of freshly picked berries. He was one of the many teens working on the second week of the six-week long loganberry harvest at Whidbey's Greenbank Farm. The berries would eventually be made into Whidbeys Liqueur.
