Bowler’s wanted for Monday night Men’s League in Wakefield

The Saugus Men’s Bowling League is looking for a few good men.  We currently have 10 four-man teams and are looking to expand to as many as twelve teams.

We bowl every Monday evening starting at 6:30 PM at the Wakefield Bowladrome on Water Street in Wakefield.  We are generally finished bowling between 8:30-9:00PM.

Our season starts the first Monday after Labor Day and usually runs to the end of April or early May.

The cost of bowling is $16 per week which covers bowling, weekly prizes, annual prizes and a bowling banquet.

We are a 100% handicap league and new teams are formed each year based on the previous year’s averages.  We try to make the teams even to encourage fair competition.  We make up the teams in August to be ready to bowl in September. Currently six of the ten teams qualify for a year end roll off to determine a champion.

We have three or four fun holiday non-team roll offs each year matching bowlers by their current averages.

Three finalists emerge in search for new Clerk

The Legislative Affairs and Elections Committee of the City Council held its initial interviews to find a replacement for recently retired City Clerk Michael Matarazzo on Monday, narrowing down a field of eight to its top three candidates. The committee almost immediately entered into a private executive session Monday evening to conduct the interviews. While it’s not clear what was discussed in that session, the Committee voted to recommend three candidates for further consideration by the full City Council. They are as follows:

• Sergio Cornelio, current Acting Clerk and Former Assistant City Clerk;

• Angelo Febbo, a member of Mayor Carlo DeMaria’s Constituent Services team; and

• Linda Greeley.

Other candidates interviewed at Monday’s meeting who did not ultimately make the cut are Daniel Pendenza, Susan A. Scialoia, Althea Lewis, Jolette Lynn Yutkins and Harvey William Lever II.

The council will hold a special meeting on Thursday, August 3 at 6 p.m. in the council chambers, where they will make their final decision.

Matarazzo retired in late June after serving in the role for over a decade. He was the final lifetime appointment to the position under the old charter. Under the new charter, whoever is hired will serve under a renewable five-year appointment.

Baker-Polito administration awards Everett Community Development Block Grant

alt

On Thursday, July 20, Governor Charlie Baker and Lieutenant Governor Karyn Polito awarded the City of Everett an $825,000 Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), one of 39 grants awarded statewide through the $30.5 million program. These funds will help Everett to respond to specific housing, community and economic development projects that support low- and moderate-income residents. The CDBG program is a federally funded, competitive grant program that helps small cities and towns meet a broad range of community development needs.

“This is a program that truly helps our city,” stated Mayor Carlo DeMaria. “My administration works every day with our state and federal delegation to continue to build our community. This grant is not just about fixing streets and sidewalks – it’s about building community, providing assistance and bringing more services to our residents. I’m thankful to Senator DiDomenico, Representative McGonagle and the Baker/ Polito administration for recognizing and acting on our needs.”

In April, Mayor DeMaria joined over 200 U.S. mayors asking Congress to protect CDBG funding. In a letter to Congress, he emphasized how these funds have supported projects and services in cities and towns that would not be funded by annual budgets. With CDBG funding municipalities are able to greatly improve the quality of life for their residents.

“Flexible block grant funding allows our cities and towns to respond to specific local needs,” said Governor Baker. “These investments will support long-term economic growth and positive changes in transportation infrastructure, housing markets and community spaces.”

“Residents across the Commonwealth will see tangible improvements in their communities through this year’s Community Development Block Grants,” said Lieutenant Governor Polito. “These awards will offer support at the local level, allowing municipalities to pursue a bright future for their community.”

In the past, CDBG funding in Everett has focused on public social services, housing rehabilitation, infrastructure improvements – consisting or rehabilitation of parks and improvements of roadway and sidewalks – and microenterprise assistance.

Mayor Carlo DeMaria recently joined Bishop Robert G. Brown and the Zion Church Ministries Community for their annual block party. The block party was held on several streets adjacent to the Zion Church on Broadway, and it included an afternoon of music, free food, and activities for children and families.

“A strong community benefits the individual, as well as the greater society,” stated Mayor DeMaria. “Every year the Zion Block Party is a great way to gather residents of our city together to celebrate the values of support, respect and community.”
