With another spectacular year of sports in Everett in the record books, join us as we take a look back on 2019 and all there was to remember, including talented Everett boxers, an NFL signee, and protest at the State House.
In February, after battling through five fights in six weeks, Everett boxer Ryan Pietrantonio powered through his competition en route to capturing the 2019 New England Golden Gloves Championship at the Lowell Auditorium. With the victory, Pietrantonio qualified to represent the New England region at the USA Boxing national tournament.

Margaret P. Russell (Gerety) 83, a resident of Everett passed away surrounded by the love and adoration of her family on Friday December 20 at the Whidden Memorial Hospital. Peggy was born on January 26, 1936 in Everett one of four children of late William and Beatrice (Landry) Gerety. She was raised in Everett and graduated from Girls’ Catholic High School in Malden.
That’s Councilor Mike Marchese’s Facebook creation last week identifying the mayor and his followers as the “DiMaria Crime Family.”
We don’t want to confuse Mike’s sense of humor with his attitude when he is angry.
He is angry about the mayor’s most recent attack on him and his family that took place in the parking lot at city hall following the end of a council meeting last week.
In jeans and a sweatshirt (that’s what the mayor was wearing at the council meeting) he looked a bit better than the blue suit he has worn so many times that some of us want to donate another suit of a different color and cut for him to wear.
I don’t care that he wore a sweatshirt and jeans to the meeting – but some of his colleagues in government were offended by it.
The DCF assignation is an apt three letter magnum opus for Marchese, who has shown his hand on where exactly he is going to stand when the new council convenes on January 6.
Don’t be afraid of the big words.
Assignation is just another way of saying the mayor using letters instead of having to utter his name. Magnum opus means big success. It is Latin, of course.
