Senate Approves Nero’s Law

Senator DiDomenico is proud to co-sponsor and join his colleagues in passing S.2573, An Act allowing humane transportation of K9 partners, also known as Nero’s Law. This legislation ensures that law enforcement officers’ K-9 partners receive life-saving medical attention and transport if injured in the line of duty. First proposed by Senator Mark Montigny, this bill comes in response to the tragic events that took the life of New Bedford-native and Yarmouth Police K-9 Sergeant Sean Gannon and severely injured his K-9 partner, Nero.

Special to the Leader Herald

With first and second place finishes at the New England Regionals November 6, the Everett Crimson Tide Pop Warner Cheerleaders earned a trip to the Nationals Competition in Florida in Decemeber.

Everett Residents Should Get Booster Shots Ahead of Dangerous Spike

Dr. Fauci Predicts Uptick in Virus

By Josh Resnek

One to four cases of COVID-19 have been reported every day in Everett’s Public Schools since the school year began. This includes students and staff.

No schools, classes or grades have been shut in the EPS system in 2021.

The staff is mostly vaccinated.

The local population is largely vaccinated but with smaller, yet major percentages unvaccinated.

COVID-19 remains a part of the EPS program and of every public school system program even at this late date.

Defending against a return of COVID-19 is part of the daily routine for schools everywhere throughout Massachusetts.

Mask requirements through the New Year across the state’s public schools remain in effect.

Many experts who study the COVID-19 virus are predicting a winter of our discontent about to hit us like a deadly collision.

The Blue Suit

Josh Resnek discusses Kyle Rittenhouse, and Carlo’s talk with President Biden, with the mayor’s Blue Suit. As usual, the mayor’s Blue Suit leaves no stone unturned.

By JOSH RESNEK with THE BLUE SUIT

I asked the Blue Suit where he’d like to have lunch after I picked him up as he walked down Elm Street Tuesday afternoon.

“What do you want. You name it. I’m treating,” I told the Blue Suit.

He was very pleased to hear I was treating.
“You know what I’d like?” he asked me.
“Let me guess,” I answered. “You want charcoal broiled steak tips and lamb.”

“How did you know this?” he shot back. “That is exactly what I want.”

Then he joked with me.

“The best charcoal broiled steak tips in the city can be found at Oliveira’s,” he said with certainty.

“You mean the place on Broadway that burned down?”

The Blue Suit placed his hands on his stomach over the jacket of his suit as if holding onto a medicine ball.

“Roger that, Josh,” he said to me.

“So now you think you’re a comedian. I mean, charcoal broiled steak tips from Oliveira’s! Don’t give up your daytime job for comedy…you’ll starve.”

We cruised the city up and down Broadway, up and down Main Street, all around the Exxon land and near to Distrigas.

‘So what do you think of that kid Rittenhouse, you know, the kid carrying an AR-15 automatic rifle who killed two men and wounded a third during the riots in Kenosha, Wisconsin in 2020?” I asked the Blue Suit. “I want your answer, not Carlo’s, please.”
