Everett High School’s football season got started on a somber note, with junior Egan Gouveia being carted off via ambulance after sustaining an injury while colliding with a teammate in the games opening kickoff.

The Crimson Tide went on to play a lackluster game, losing 42-12 to Central High School in their first opening game loss in several years.

Even with one of Massachusetts’ top teams losing in surprising fashion, the focus throughout and after the contest was on Gouveia’s status.

“Our prayers our with Egan,” said Everett coach Theluxon Pierre to the Boston Globe following the game. “We got word that he’s doing OK, so that’s the most important thing tonight,” said Pierre, who stood beside his junior linebacker until ambulances were able to immobilize his back and neck and move him from the field.

Dear Andrew Lelling:

You’ve been having a lot of fun in Fall River lately.

I’m inviting you to Everett.

You and FBI Agent Elio need to take a close look at the obvious. Kickback Carlo DeMaria is in his tenth year of organized, obscene, uniquely disguised municipal theft and greed.

Everett isn’t Fall River.

The mayor won’t allow marijuana here.

He can’t trust himself to decline huge cash payments from marijuana businesses wanting to locate here.

But he brought a casino here.

That was worth something to him as he does not do things that fail to reward him personally.

“What’s in it for me,” is his mantra.

According to a law suit now winding through Federal Court in Boston, he received a sizeable kickback in return for delivering the land used for the casino and hotel site to Steve Wynn.

I’ve talked with a number of people with knowledge of the kickback, including one who says he can identify how Kickback Carlo was paid, exactly how much he got, and who aided him in executing the arrangement.
