A raid at what has been described as a motorcycle gang clubhouse on Orient Avenue in Everett Friday night has led to three arrests, and to the confiscation of four illegal firearms and ammunition, according to the Everett Police and the Middlesex District Attorney’s office.
Police said at least a dozen members of the Pagan Motorcyle Club were present at the location having a few drinks wearing their patches and insignias – known as colors.
When all was said and done, four semi-automatic handguns with loaded magazines and additional ammunition elsewhere were taken from gang members at the scene.
Police reported no violence at the club during the raid.
Eating lunch at the 8/10 on Tuesday I sat with a Wynn employee who’s been working the site for 22 months.
He’s a tradesman. A higher up type of employee overseeing many other tradesmen.
He said the place is in fact coming to completion fast.
He said the restaurants are nearly completed and that a Dunkin’ Donuts was going to open there, contrary to rumors that Kickback Carlo had succeeded in getting a Honey Dew Donuts concession in the casino for himself.
He said the gaming floors are complete. The slot machines are fully installed and ready to go.
The famous Popeye sculpture by Jeff Koons, which Steve Wynn paid $27 million, is not located at the entrance to the casino in the middle of the twin staircases as originally planned.
He said the sculpture will be located further inside the casino.
He said the hotel is done, that it was finished some weeks ago, that only smaller details are left to complete here and there.
This guy has no skin in the game.
He’s just an employee looking forward to being done and taking a vacation.
Parking will very likely be a disaster, he said.
The parking lots don’t have even a fraction of the spaces that are needed if the crowds arrive.
As I have written recently on several occasions, the question is not whether or not the casino will be crowded, rather, but how crowded it will be.
Through a combination of legal, economic and political reasoning the city’s library system, and its employees will shortly be controlledand entirely funded by the mayor’s office and will be subject to theyear to year budget discretion necessary to keep the doors open for all the Library’s many thousands of users.
The mayor’s legal department has already assured members of the Library’s Board of Trustees that everything about the city’s two public libraries will remain the same – that is – the hours of operation, thefunding, and the staffing.
In addition, the library system’s staffing requirements will nowfall under the domain of the Human Resources Department, and themayor’s office.
