The Game of the Week series of the regular winter season is on hiatus as the RHS Basketball Teams played their final regular-season games last week. Both the Boys and Girls teams took on Hamilton-Wenham last Tuesday afternoon. Unfortunately, the Girls team lost with a final score of 45-28, but the Boys won with a final score of 57-34. RTV will potentially be covering the Boys Team in the playoffs, depending on the schedule. RevereTV is grateful for the volunteer announcers that pushed the live coverage along all season: Patrick Keefe, Donny Boudreau and Jason Smith.
RevereTV’s live coverage of Revere High School sports and many other community events would not be possible without the help of our camera operators. Ashton DeRuosi has been with RevereTV for years now and started as a Revere Recreation summer intern. He has since become one of the studio’s most trusted camera operators and video editors. Live productions are a team effort, and Ashton can always be counted on in these high-pressure situations. He has been extremely flexible with his time and willing to attend many community events on his own that result in video packages featured on the Community Channel and social media pages. RevereTV congratulates Ashton, who will now be taking his production talents to WHDH-Boston. Although the studio is sad to lose some of Ashton’s time, the staff is proud of him and knows he will continue to be a part of the RTV family. Congratulations, Ashton!
There have been a few public hot topic government meetings over the past few weeks that will be continuing into next month. The Traffic Commission has been studying the neighborhood between Malden Street and Squire Road and hearing public comment about possible changes to improve traffic conditions on those streets. The latest Traffic Commission Meeting is currently airing on RTV GOV every day over the next few weeks. You can also rewatch all these meetings on YouTube at any time to see how these issues and resolutions have progressed.
The Ways and Means Subcommittee and Revere City Council have been long debating and working on potential plans for a new Revere High School at Wonderland. Since a public high school is one of the most important institutions in a city, this, of course, is a major topic of discussion. You can watch the latest Ways and Means and Revere City Council Meetings on RTV GOV every day at various times or on RTV’s YouTube page at your convenience. Check the city calendar on revere.org for the schedule of all local government meetings. RevereTV covers meetings as they are scheduled by the City of Revere on that calendar.
