Team effort in rout of Lynn English


The Crimson Tide opened the season in winning fashion Friday, blowing out Lynn English, 42-12, behind a swarming defense and an even more potent offense.

The 42 points scored are the most in a season-opener by the Crimson Tide since 2015 when they scored 49 points in a win against rival Xaverian.

The offensive production is proof first-year head coach and Everett High School grad (class of ‘84) Robert DiLoreto is flexing his X’s and O’s prowess.

From 2008-2017, as assistant coach and offensive co-ordinator for Reading High and EHS (2017), DiLoreto helped his teams to an incredible six perfect seasons and three Super Bowl titles, and his coaching skill showed on Friday.

Leading the pack offensively for the Tide (1-0) was senior running back J.C. Clerveaux, who finished with a team-high three touchdowns on the ground. By the end of the third quarter, the game was firmly in Everett’s grasp as they scored six consecutive touchdowns while holding onto a 42-6 advantage.

Nipping it in the bud

City eyes ban of scourge of booze bottles


Full nips are a little alcoholic treat.

Empty nips are a public health hazard. They are found everywhere through- out the city and have become an enemy of efforts to keep the city orderly and clean.

Banning the nips gained momentum at Monday evening’s council meeting, with the council leaning toward banning the small plastic bottles.

“I’m all for banning them as they did in Chelsea,” said Representative Joseph McGonagle.

Everett is not using CARES Act money wisely


As a City Councilor with a passion for helping people directly, I have noticed the lack of direct relief to people and small businesses in Everett.

Many families and individuals all across the country have been struggling to pay their utilities, rent, mortgages, need more food, and small businesses have needed a little more help.

Many thousands of Everett’s families are in the same exact position.

The CARES Act, the American Rescue Plan, and the money allocated by the state should be used wisely to correct systemic inequities and help people directly to get back on their feet across the nation and in Everett, especially.

We have crises in areas including, but not limited to, housing, employment, homelessness, a pandemic, food insecurity, physical health/ mental health/addiction, and systemic racism and colorism in our community. The big picture is we need to eradicate all of these.
