A Look Back …This week in the Forks Forum

This week in 1999 it was more bad weather and multiple power outages for the West End after a tree went down on lines near West End Motors. That had just been repaired and power restored when someone fell a tree on the Bonneville Power lines; once that was restored a main feeder line to Neah Bay had suffered damage! Marni Whitehead was on the Dean’s List at SPU. Dr. Leibold had written a letter to the Editor opposing wolf introduction in the ONP. Aladdin performances had featured many little ballerinas, including Whitney Fairbanks and Abigail McIrvin (photo). The new Forks Shuttle was in service with a route around town. City officials had taken the first cruise around town (photo).

In 1974 the Civil Defense Quonset Huts in Tillicum Park were discussed by the Forks City Council. Two were damaged and to be removed and one to be set up for the Disaster Relief Committee. Council also approved a new vehicle for the Town Marshal; the cost was to be $3,650. Jack Zaccardo had presented a slide show of old logging and area photos to the Forks Chamber of Commerce.

In 1952 town basketball teams and a few from out of the area were planning a tournament to benefit the Polio Drive for the March of Dimes. Thirteen girls had been awarded their Brownie pins in a special ceremony, among them Candy Fox. Bert M. Paul & Son had announced that they had purchased Forks Grocery & Feed. The 1952 Ford was now on display at Warner’s Garage.
