St. Joseph's was chosen for this grant out of  hundreds of applications from parishes both large and small across the United States, who are committed to fulfilling the needs of their communities, and this award will be thoughtfully and carefully used in an effort to enhance the worship experience of St. Joseph's Parish Community.


Everett hockey team looks to change momentum

The Everett hockey team continues to work through a tough competitive stretch. Everett is 1-7 on the season, and coach Eric Kainen continues to preach patience, as his team maintains a high work ethic.

On Wednesday night, the Crimson Tide fell, again, to Somerville, 8-5. “It was a competitive game, but we came out on the wrong end,” Kainen said. “We’re getting there, we see the best of ourselves in spurts, but it’s an ongoing process. Our guys need to learn how to compete for a full game.”

Everett hit the post multiple times and got excellent play from their seniors, all of whom scored a goal. “Our seniors came to play and competed their hearts out,” Kainen said. “But the puck luck didn’t go our way.”

Marc Saia, Bryan Bessler, Ryan Snook and Louis Staffieri all scored, as did Anthony Marino, who has been converted to forward from defense. It was his first varsity goal. “We asked him to fill a big role and it’s impressive how he’s handled the transitions,” Kainen said. “He was easily the grittiest player on the night.”

On the plus side, Everett has lowered the number of shots conceded per game. They allowed 30 on Wednesday, as opposed to the 55 they routinely allowed at the beginning of the season.

The Crimson Tide will play Minuteman on Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

“We’re trying to get better in practice every day,” Kainen said. “The only way out of the rut is through it.”


City of Everett looks to extend Northern Strand Community Trail

DeMaria administration awards RFP to Howard Stein Hudson

Mayor Carlo DeMaria and the City of Everett are seeking to build on the success of the northern sections of the Northern Strand Community Trail by continuing it to the Mystic River. The extension of the Northern Strand to the south will provide a connection for residents and commuters alike to the Gateway Center, the Wynn Boston Harbor resort-casino and destinations across the river in Somerville and Boston. The City of Everett recently awarded a Request for Proposal (RFP) for the Northern Strand Community Trail extension conceptual design to Howard Stein Hudson (HSH), which has offices in Boston and Chelmsford and has been delivering transportation improvement projects throughout the Commonwealth for the past 30 years.

Mayor DeMaria stated, “The extension of the Northern Strand Community Trail represents a major opportunity for the City of Everett and its residents. Multi-use bike paths that connect significant destinations can bring increased economic vitality, improved quality of life and better community health outcomes by providing easy access to physical activity.”

Clay Larsen, Project Manager of Bike to the Sea, Inc., which worked to build the Northern Strand since 1993, stated, “I want to thank Mayor DeMaria and the City of Everett for spearheading this project. This connection provides a critical link from the Northern Strand Community Path’s end through Gateway Park, the Wynn Harbor development and into Boston. When the trail is completed, users will be able to ride from Lynn all the way to Boston.”

To move the path forward to the Mystic River, the City of Everett has partnered with Wynn Resorts, the MBTA, the state Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) and Gateway Shopping Center. These partnerships will involve creative engineering solutions and a keen understanding of group dynamics; the inner workings of the MBTA, DCR and private developers; and strong facilitation that brings a diverse set of stakeholders together around a set of shared goals and understandings.

The primary challenge for this project was designing an efficient yet collaborative stakeholder process that moves all relevant parties in the same direction. The dominant stakeholders in the extension are the private landowners and state agencies involved, but broad, sustained community support is essential to proceed. Mayor DeMaria emphasized that the stakeholders need to understand that the community wants this project, and its benefits make it worthwhile.

DCR and Wynn Resorts have committed to easement rights for their respective sections of the Northern Strand Community Trail as part of their Massachusetts Environmental Policy Act (MEPA) filings for the Gateway Center and Wynn Boston Harbor.

Connecting Everett to Boston via a comfortable and safe multi-use path would create more affordable, healthier and enjoyable commute options for hundreds of commuters, and a recreational outlet for hundreds more. The Northern Strand is also an essential section of a much larger vision for a connected statewide bicycle network.
