What Happens In Las Vegas Doesn’t Stay In Nevada

Inside a Superior Courtroom in Las Vegas on December 12 holds the key to the future of the casino/hotel development – right now.

If a judge inside that courtroom allows Steve Wynn’s lawsuit to prevail, then the Massachusetts Gaming Commission’s long awaited judgement about whether or not Wynn Resorts will be found suitable to own the license to their project in Everett, cannot be made public.

Taxes Are Rising and Rising

And There’s No End in Sight

If you are an Everett taxpayer, whether you own a single family home, a two family, a three family, a multifamily, an apartment house, a giant apartment house with many units, a commercial property, your tax bill is going up and up, like a balloon filled with helium released from your hand and rising higher and higher into the air.

By Lorenzo Recupero

Pope John High School football players and coaches will be competing in the biggest game of their lives this weekend at Gillette Stadium, but that doesn’t mean they’ll be doing anything any differently. Preparations will go as planned for the Tigers and that means not changing a thing at all.

“[We’ve] practiced all week like it’s any other game. We want to make it like preparing for any other game and not make it bigger than what it is,” said Pope John coach Paul Sobolewski of the team’s preparation for the Division 8 State Championship game against St. Bernard’s at Gillette Stadium Saturday at 9AM.
