Everett Firefighters Deliver Baby Girl into Hands of Mother

It was to have been just another shift for Everett Fire Captain Michael O’Brien, 37, and Firefighters John Goyetche, 64 and Scott Hogan, 50 on Tuesday October 8.
It was hardly just another shift – and they rarely are without something memorable happening.
In its full essence, this experience was about life, a new life and it was about professionalism and training, having the right equipment, and knowing exactly what to do.
It was about Everett fire fighters performing at their very best.
Working out of the Hancock Street fire station these three received a call from dispatcher Jessie King.Continue Reading
Looking at Politics
Who Gets Bumped?
By Josh Resnek
There is a general feeling shared among those working the highly contested councilor at large race. First, there is a growing belief that candidate Gerly Adrien is going to score a seat for herself.
The belief is that her time has come, that her last race against the rep showed her citywide possibilities for scoring a good vote.
Finishing among the top five at-large candidates in the recent primary also helped her reputation as the person to watch.
If Adrien is to win, one of the chief contenders for re-election has to lose.
The big question, the eternal ultimate question never answered until all the votes have been counted on election day – who will not be returned to their at-large seat to make way for Adrien’s expected entry.Continue Reading

Bits and Pieces
By Josh Resnek
To my knowledge, there are no Kurds living in Everett.
Kurds as nearly everyone must know by now, were just deserted by the United States over in Syria where the liberal press would have you believe the world is coming to an end because we deserted them.
Fact of the matter is that every president since Franklin Roosevelt has deserted the Kurds or used them or deserted them after using them.
It is the Turks the world always supports.
It is the Turks, who slaughtered the Armenians, millions of them, who the world cowers in front of, always.
The Turks don’t like the Kurds because the Kurds live in an autonomous region just to the South of the Turkish border.
The Turks claim the Kurds are terrorists.
The Kurds claim the Turks want to do a good old fashioned Turkish genocide on them.
They are probably right about this.
The world, not just the United States, has deserted the Kurds, again and again.Continue Reading

Base the Decision on Merit
A proposed development by Greg Antonelli where he hopes to place 30 units of new residential housing at a site on 295 Chelsea Street has inspired the ire of the abutters, the Mastrocola Family.
The property is behind the Taco Bell on the Parkway, which is adjacent to the Mastrocola Building where a number of business offices are located including the Mastrocola Insurance Agency.
The Mastrocolas have circulated a petition opposing the project.
On its face, we do not oppose the project as it is proposed for one of the most densely populated business and residential areas of the city and close to significant road connections where huge residential projects have been completed recently.Continue Reading
City Treasurer Forced to Retire; Mayor Asks for Resignation
By Josh Resnek
Dominico D’Angelo, the longtime Everett City Treasurer, has left his position, cleaning out his office at the end of the business day Monday after apparently being told by the mayor earlier in the day to retire or to be fired.
Efforts to reach D’Angelo for a comment were unsuccessful.
As treasurer and collector, D’Angelo oversaw a large department by city hall standards, with multiple clerks and manifold duties, the most important of which.
These included accepting all tax payments from property owners both commercial and residential as well as fees of every kind and all the revenues generated by the city’s energetic parking ticket operation.Continue Reading
