25 years ago (1988)

Lynn Lognion, of Marysville, a packer at Scott Paper's plant, explained her job to Democratic vice presidential candidate Lloyd Bentsen, who was visiting Everett. Ethel McNeal beamed with delight when Bentsen ambled over to the roped- off area of spectators and shook her hand.

A 272-foot landing craft, the Gen. Brehon B. Somervell, would be open to the public for a tour at the Norton Terminal on the Everett waterfront. The Somervell, which was part of the Washington State Army National Guard's transportation detachment, was built at a cost of $10.5 million.
