Students needed for yard work and
snow shoveling
Mayor Carlo DeMaria and the Everett Human Services Department have once again
announced the Mayor’s yard work and snow
shoveling referral list, and are currently accepting the names of local Everett students who are
interested in earning some money by doing
yard work and snow shoveling to help their
neighbors.
The yard work and snow shoveling referral
list is not a city funded program. It is an inventory of names, addresses and phone numbers
of local students who are willing to work for
their neighbors, which can be provided to local residents who have a need to hire a young
person to help them with small yard projects
around their homes. Arrangements for the type
of work and rate of pay must be negotiated between the neighbor and the students,
When a resident needs assistance they can
contact the Mayor’s Office and ask to be referred to a student living in their area who may
be willing to do the work.
Resident wishing to receive the list and students wishing to be listed should contact the
Office of Human Services at 617-394-2260.

process carefully.
However, last Thursday,
Wynn Resorts gave 85 million
reasons for that kind of talk to
stop.
The Massachusetts Gaming
Commission (MGC) officially awarded Wynn Resorts the
Greater Boston region casino
license on Thursday morning,
and though they didn't need
to, Wynn returned the favor
by wiring the $85 million licensing fee to the state on that
same morning.
Licensees have 30 days
from the awarding to pay the
licensing fee.
Robert DeSalvio, Wynn
senior vice president of development, said the company
wanted to show they are serious by paying the large fee as
soon as possible.
"We just wanted to present
the check today to signify our
DENALI JACKETS
• Men’s • Women’s • Kids • Infants

Assorted Colors
commitment to this project
and that we are looking forward to completing our final
environmental applications
and getting started right after
the first of the year," he said,
following a short ceremony at
the South Boston Convention
Center. "We anticipate remediation will start in the first
quarter of 2015. We believe it
to be a six-month remediation
process and a 30-month build
out. That's putting us with an
opening in December 2017."
Commissioner
Jim
McHugh - who accepted the
ceremonial check from DeSalvio - said he is very proud
of the process and believes the
Commonwealth has the very
best operators.
"It's a very exciting day," he
said. "Ask anyone and they'll
say we have three of the best
operators in the business, if
not the three best in the business. We're very happy about
that. We're really proud of
the quality of operators we've
been able to attract and we
look forward to continuing
on."
McHugh said Thursday
was also exciting for the state
because a significant revenue
boost from the $85 million
check was seen for numerous
things, including education,
transportation/infrastructure
and an amplification of the
state's Rainy Day Fund.
He said the next step will
be for Wynn to complete it's
environmental reports, and to
periodically report back to the
MGC for mandated updates.
"The next step in Region
A is Wynn's filing of the next
phase of its MEPA reports,"
he said. "They're committed
to doing that by the end of the
MALDEN FIRST CHURCH of the NAZARENE
FREE
year. There's no set deadline,
but that's their commitment.
Now, also, this award of the
license triggers a number of
periodic reports with regard to
various stages of their progress. The first being in about
30 days. They'll be reporting
to us frequently."
The main focus of the environmental reporting is traffic considerations, especially
in Sullivan Square. Already,
DeSalvio has said Wynn representatives have been meeting about twice a week to discuss these traffic issues. That,
McHugh said, is encouraging
to hear, as most of the license
granting process last September in regards to the Wynn application dealt with pounding
out a traffic plan.
"We haven't seen anything
resulting from those meetings
before us, but we're delighted
they have engaged in conversations now because we did
spend a great deal of time
during the licensing process,
and gave a lot of thought to,
the traffic situation," he said.
Meanwhile, in Las Vegas,
Wynn President Steve Wynn
has apparently been hard at
work with his team of designers coming up with some
new ideas for his project - as
the MGC wasn't so hot on the
tower he had proposed during
licensing.
DeSalvio told the Independent the results of that re-design would be coming very
soon.
"Before the end of the year,
we'll be ready to present those
new designs," he said. "Mr.
Wynn and the designers have
been working hard on these
new designs and I think everyone will be very happy with
what they come up with."
Reportedly, Wynn has put a
great deal of effort into planning every detail of the entrance to the facility.

The only close vote on the
Everett ballot was Question

the automatic gas tax increase
(which, before the vote,
would have been chained to
the Consumer Price Index).
In Everett, voters approved
of the repeal by a slim margin - winning by 94 votes. The
'Yes' votes were 50.5 percent
(4,325 votes) to 49.4 percent
(4,321 votes) to keep the gas
tax automatic increase.
The other questions, such
as Question 2's proposal to
expand the bottle bill to water bottles and energy drinks,
were landslides.
Question 2 saw only 17
percent voting to expand the
bottle bill, and 83 percent voting against doing so. It was a

Everett,” said the mayor. “The
people of the Commonwealth
have spoken, affirming that
the institution of gaming legislation is a positive and progressive choice for our state.
For the City of Everett this

commitment to our vision for

Massachusetts
Gaming
Commission (MGC) Chair
Steve Crosby said the MGC
respects the voters choice and
will move quickly to implement what was affirmed.
“The Commission remains
committed to two key objectives: maximizing the revenue, jobs and other economic
development impacts of expanded gaming; and minimizing the unintended and potentially negative consequences
of expanded gaming,” Crosby
said. “We realize that approximately 41 percent voted in favor of the ballot initiative, and
it is our job to continue to earn
the confidence of all the people of Massachusetts – propo-
nents and opponents alike.”
Speaking of opponents,
it wasn’t everyone who was
happy with the results. John
Ribeiro, chair of Repeal the
Casino Deal,
“Of course we’re disappointed we came up short on
Tuesday, but we left it all on
the field and our work is not
over,” Ribeiro said. “The casino industry profits at the
expense of families and small
businesses. Rest assured, we
will be watching the licensing
process and the Massachusetts Gambling Commission
very closely as the process
continues...As talks continue
over mitigation, surrounding
community agreements and
infrastructure projects, we all
need to hold our leaders accountable. As Thomas Jefferson said, ‘The price of Liberty
is eternal vigilance.’”

LET’S SUPPORT OUR EVERETT
FOOTBALL TEAM
There have been so many “big” games during the John DiBiaso Era that it’s hard to call one bigger than the next.
But this Friday night’s St. John’s Prep-Everett football game
for the Division 1 North sectional certainly ranks as one of the
most exciting match-ups in the program’s storied history.
For starters, the game is a rematch of Everett’s hard-fought
34-23 victory over St. John’s Prep in the Homecoming Game.
Secondly, the winner of the game will advance to the Super
Bowl at Gillette Stadium – and what a great thrill that would be
for our high school players to compete in the same stadium as
the New England Patriots.
This year’s Everett High School football team has already
accomplished so much. Led by coach DiBiaso and his outstanding staff, the Tide have won the Greater Boston League title
and compiled a 7-1 record while facing the toughest schedule
in the state. They currently stand tall with the No. 2 ranking in
Massachusetts.
But it’s the tremendous improvement of this team since its
first game of the season until now that truly affirms why John
DiBiaso is in a class by himself as a coach. This was supposed
to be somewhat of a rebuilding year for the Tide, but somehow
Everett has developed quickly and now stands at the brink of
greatness.
We’ve been fortunate in Everett to have a succession of outstanding football teams that have brought so much excitement
and acclaim to our community. Superintendent of Schools Frederick Foresteire has been a guiding force in the success of the
football program and all the sports programs at the high school.
Mr. Foresteire will be front and center at Everett Memorial Stadium Friday night hoping that this team can find a way to earn
its spot on the biggest stage in high school football – Gillette
Stadium.
We hope the community will join Supt. Foresteire in cheering on our boys at the Stadium Friday night.

spect as we shape legislation
on Beacon Hill. Through our
efforts we have distinguished
Massachusetts as the national
leader in supporting veterans. This is an amazing feat.
The Commonwealth spends
more than double the amount
on veterans than any other
state. We provide the highest
number of benefit programs,
offering 67 unique services,
and we’ve made it a priority
to open dialogues so that we
can better understand the challenges facing veterans.
In 2009, acutely aware of
how difficult economic times
would hit veterans returning
home, the Legislature passed
a law to ease the financial burden on these families. We then
crafted the VALOR I and II
Acts. In the span of only two
years we expanded Military
Family Relief Fund, enhanced
health care support, and provided resources for education,
housing, and job training.
Our legislation puts a premium on finding targeted
ways to help our veterans,
military personnel and their
families build a bright future.
These individuals have made
sacrifices for our nation and
we are so thankful for their
pride and bravery. On behalf
of the House of Representatives, I would like to express
my profound gratitude and
let you know that my door is
always open as we find new
ways to support the state’s
veterans.

Throughout the New Testament the Christian life is
compared to running a race.
When we surrendered our
lives to Christ the race started
and will be completed on that
great day when we are in His
presence forever.
Running the race will be
the theme of this Sunday's sermon in a message entitled, “A
Tale of Three Runners”. I will
be speaking about three runners and the results of the races that they competed in and
which runner or runners we

News and Notes
Greetings from the desk of
one of the members of Freedom In Christ of Everett.
Did you know that in the
last days two “churches” will
rise up? I’m not talking about
a physical building or denomination. In the book of Revelation, chapter 3 it talks about
the church of Philadelphia
and the church of Laodicea.
Do you know about these 2
churches? If you don’t, may
I suggest you read the third
chapter of Revelation and ask
God to open your eyes to what
He is trying to say?
The church of Philadelphia
is the on fire church that is
working for God, reaching the
lost, expectant of His power
and glory, desiring Jesus’ return and telling everyone they
see who Jesus is.
The church of Laodicea is
the settled church that is more
concerned with social issues,
politics, building upkeep, entertaining each other and believing that they are rich and
have it all.
Choose wisely which
church you should be in. If
you have been settled for years
or were born into a church
and are comfortable there ask
yourself, which church do you
believe you are in? Ask God
to open your eyes to see where
you are and ask Him where
you should be.
Don’t settle for “at least I go
to church”. Revelation chapter
3 says, and I am paraphrasing,
you are neither hot nor cold
instead you are lukewarm and
because you are lukewarm, I
will spit you out of My mouth.
Yikes, I wouldn’t want to be
lukewarm.
As God reveals to you
where you should be, if that is
where you are now, praise the
Lord, but if it’s not, then find
a gathering place with other
believers where the Gospel of
Jesus Christ is preached and
the congregation is on fire. If
you don't know of a gathering
place like that, let me invite
you to join us at Freedom In
Christ. Our services are:
Sunday School at 10:00 am
Sunday Worship at 11:00
am
Tuesday Prayer Meeting at
7:00 pm
Wednesday Bible Study at
11:00 am
Thursday Revival Service
at 7:00 pm
If you want to find out more
about Jesus feel free to give
me a call anytime at 617-3192449.

Everett beats Peabody, 55-41
Tide play St. John's Prep for North title Friday
By Cary Shuman
The Everett High School
football team repelled a challenge from an upset-minded
Peabody team, eventually prevailing in a wild 55-41 barnburner Friday night at Everett
Veterans Memorial Stadium.
The win over the Tanners
sets up a dream rematch with
St. John’s Prep for the Division 1 North sectional championship Friday at 7 p.m. on
the Tide’s home field. Everett
won the first meeting, 34-23,
on Homecoming Day and
now the teams will compete
with a berth in the Division 1
Super Bowl at Gillette Stadium on the line.
Coach John DiBiaso’s
Crimson Tide needed every
bit of its offensive firepower
to hold off Peabody and its
elusive running back, Doug
Santos, who dented the Everett defense for 195 yards and
three touchdowns. Peabody
quarterback Mike Raymond
added 278 yards passing to
keep the Tanners within striking distance.
But it was Everett’s phenomenal two-way force, senior Lukas Denis, who turned
in the undisputed play of the
night. With the Tide holding
on to a precarious one-point
lead, Denis intercepted a pass
thrown by Santos and returned
it 82 yards for a touchdown.
Denis had earlier riddled
the Peabody defense when
he caught a screen pass from
Jordan McAfee and turned
it into a 54-yard touchdown.
The Boston College-bound
captain also had a 23-yard TD
reception.
McAfee, a 6-foot-3-inch
sophomore, turned in a solid
performance, passing for 184
yards, including a 46-yard TD
strike to Jean Richard.
Jackinson Joacine and Luis
Cardona each scored two
touchdowns in the second
half, but it wasn’t until the final minute of play – and some
excellent work by the Tide’s
special teams on successive
onside kicks – that Everett
could breathe a sigh of relief.
“It was a big win – Peabody
played very well,” said Everett coach John DiBiaso. “We
need to play better defense
but this was an exciting high
school football game.”

huge block and clears the path
for Jackinson Joacine to run.

Denis excels in big win over Peabody
By Cary Shuman
Thursday night Everett
High’s Lukas Denis accepted
the ‘E’ Club’s Bouvier Jewelers Award as the most outstanding senior football player.
Friday night Denis affirmed
his status as one of the best
all-around players in Massachusetts with three touchdowns in a thrilling 55-41 win
over Peabody in the Division
1 North semifinals.
Denis kept his acceptance
speech brief at ‘E’ Club
Awards Dinner, thanking the
club for the high honor and
beautiful trophy (and watch)
that he received.
Superintendent of Schools
Frederick Foresteire talked
about Denis’s performance
following the Tide’s victory
Friday night.
“Lukas Denis did what he’s
done all year and throughout
his whole career – and that’s
why BC has recruited him
early,” said Foresteire. “He’s
such an outstanding player.
He plays to the level of the
game. God has given him a
talent that not too many people have and he displays it
every week on the field. And
he’s as great a person off the
field as he is on the field. And
I think that’s what makes him
what he is. He ranks up there
with Everett’s very best of all
time.”
Foresteire was asked about
the tremendous showdown
with St. John’s Prep that is already being billed as “game of
the year.”
“We’re looking forward to
the game [versus the Prep],”
said Foresteire, trying to restrain his enthusiasm for a
game that should attract a
massive crowd to Everett
Memorial Stadium. “It’s a
big game and we’ll go from
there.”
Everett's Johnathan Freitas muscles out of Tanner's Evan Thompsons's hold and readies to face his next barrier.

CITY OF EVERETT DEDICATES POW/MIA
CHAIR AT POLICE HQ
This past Saturday, Mayor Carlo DeMaria was honored by Portal to Hope for the Decade of Service Award. Portal to Hope is a nationally recognized, award winning nonprofit organization that provides comprehensive services to people whose lives have been
impacted by domestic violence, sexual assault, and stalking crimes. Mayor DeMaria joined Deborah Fallon, the founder of Portal to
Hope, and members of the community to discuss the importance of increasing the awareness of domestic violence and the intent
to connect advocates across the nation who are working to end violence against women and their children. Pictured with Mayor
DeMaria is State Senator Sal DiDomenico and their families.
Mayor DeMaria meets with senior staff to discuss snow season
With the snow season now
upon us, the City is well prepared for both snow removal
and emergency measures. The
Mayor recently met with his
senior staff to ensure that the
procedures, staffing, and supplies for snow removal and
parking enforcement are effectively in place.
City Services has stockpiled over 500 tons of salt
and sand for roads and sidewalks, tested and prepped
twenty- one (21) trucks and
snow plows, and coordinated snow removal route plans.
The City Services mechanics have oiled, greased, and
tested the three (3) sidewalk
plows, a skidsteer, and a crew
cab truck with plow and salter. The Bobcat and sidewalk
plow and sander, used for
main thoroughfares, squares,
and municipal parking lots,
have also been tested and
prepped. In addition to these
existing pieces of equipment,
two backhoes have also been
added to the fleet, as well as
a mini excavator and stump
grinder.
The Police, Parking, and
Communications Department
have reaffirmed their strategy
for notifying residents of parking bans. Parking bans and restrictions will be implemented
and enforced ahead of storms
to ensure that cars have been
removed before the snowfall
so that plows can properly remove snow from streets. Once
the decision has been made
to declare a snow emergency,
the information will be made
available to residents through
robo phone calls, postings on
ECTV, and by the activation
of the blue emergency lights
along main arteries.
A reminder to residents
of the current ordinance re-
garding snow regulations and
parking restrictions: Several
years ago, the City Council
passed an alteration indicating
that a snow season, beginning
in October/November, will
now be defined by the subsequent calendar year. On secondary streets where parking
is normally permitted on both
sides, cars must park on the
side of the street that corresponds to that year.
For this snow season, December 2014 – March/April of
2015, the year used for parking bans will be 2015 – an odd
numbered year – thus vehicles
should park on the ODD side
of the street. This would apply for the entire snow season.
As always, there is no parking
permitted on main arteries
during a parking ban.
Main arteries include:
Chelsea, Hancock, Nichols,
Norwood, Lawrence, Bell-
rock, Broadway, Main, Elm,
Ferry, Bucknam, High, Garland, Alpine.
Failure to follow parking
ban and snow emergency regulations will result in the ticketing and towing of vehicles.
The Code Enforcement
Department would also like
to remind people when shoveling not to throw snow back
into the street. This hinders
the efforts of the City to effectively plow our roadways, and
is subject to fines up to $300.
Also, using objects to reserve
parking spaces on City streets
is prohibited by City ordinance.
The Mayor and his administration ask that all residents
help the City achieve a successful snow removal season
by following these regulations, and thank everyone in
advance for their cooperation.
WYNN RESORTS SHOWS COMMUNITY SUPPORT
Mayor Carlo DeMaria recently had the privilege of helping
dedicate a POW/ MIA Chair at the Everett Police Station.
A POW/MIA chair represents all who were counted as missing, but not forgotten. With its installation, Everett is now a part
of the Rolling Thunder POW/MIA Chair of Honor Program.
Rolling Thunder strives to bring daily reminders of POW/
MIA issues to cities and towns across the country. The chair is
to remain perpetually empty to help people remember that even
though our soldiers are not here, there is still a place for them.
“It was an honor and a privilege to unveil this addition to
our community,” states Mayor DeMaria, “Veterans’ issues are
of the utmost importance to me. This POW/MIA chair is an
important reminder that we must support our military men and
women, and never forget the sacrifices they make for our country.
The chair was funded by the Everett Police Department Patrolman’s Union and the Everett Police Department Superior
Officer’s Union. It is only the second POW/MIA chair placed in
a municipal police department in the United States.
The Mayor and Chief Mazzie would like to extend a special thanks to Andrew Biggio of the P.O.W. Foundation and to
Joseph Hickey, Everett’s Veterans Services Commissioner, for
their work on this project.

POW/MIA chair dedication.
EVERETT POLICE OFFICER RECEIVES
PROMOTION
On Monday, November 10th Everett Police Officer Scott
Stalbaum was honored in the City Hall Chambers in recognition of his promotion. Stalbaum was appointed to the rank of
Sergeant. Mayor DeMaria, local officials, fellow police officers,
family members and residents were in attendance to congratulate Sgt. Stalbaum.
“I was honored to be part of this special occasion for Scott,”
states Mayor DeMaria, “Our Police Department strives to deliver their best each and every day. Sergeant Stalbaum is an excellent example of this commitment and dedication. His promotion
is well deserved, and I congratulate him for this achievement.”
Police Officer Scott Stalbaum with his family.
Mayor Carlo DeMaria and First Lady, Stacy DeMaria, recently had the pleasure of attending an Everett High School football game
with the President of Wynn Everett, Robert DeSalvio, and his wife Francie. The Mayor, along with DeSalvio, extended congratulations to Coach John DiBiaso, the players, and Superintendent Frederick Foresteire after the team’s victory. The Mayor expressed to
DeSalvio that Everett is truly the City of Champions and that he is proud to be from a community where the children strive for the
best each and everyday. The Mayor and his wife Stacy wish to extend congratulations and continued good fortune once again to
the EHS Football team. These young people certainly make Everett proud. Roll Tide Roll!

Theater Review
You’re Gonna Like It at ‘Annie’
By Sheila Barth
[email protected]
The U.S. National Tour’s new
production of “Annie” (at Boston’s Citi Performing Arts Center
Wang Theatre through Nov. 16),
couldn’t be more timely.
After nationwide, hotly-contested elections in which the Republicans swept congressional
seats, this version of the 1930’s,
post-stock market crash musical, helmed by original director
and lyricist, Martin Charnin,
draws sharp political and societal
lines that are mirrored in today’s
post-recession America.
Times were tough then, and
they’re tough now, with burgeoning homeless and unemployment numbers. Generally,
the “Annie” set is more lightweight and eyeball-popping, but
Charnin commissioned Tony
Award-winning designer Beowulf Boritt to create a more
realistic, gritty look. Annie’s or-
phanage in 1932 is a three-tiered,
grimy, crowded place. A dreary,
Hooverville homeless conclave
gives affirmation to the people’s
satiric lament, “We’d Like to
Thank You, (Herbert Hoover)”.
And Ken Billington’s lighting
and Tony nominee Peter Hylenski’s sound design add a sinister
glow to those hard-knock times. New York City’s side streets,
back alleys, and the city’s skyline on stage are no bargain, either. The Roxy Theatre District,
usually emblazoned with neon
lights, is also downplayed; but billionaire Oliver Warbucks’
Fifth Avenue mansion and President Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s (FDR’s) White House
retain their opulence.
Although “Annie’s serious
side resonates with adults, the
musical is one of those shows
that families enjoy seeing together, especially around the
holidays. Little girls and boys

hour production, and many sang
iconic hit songs, “Maybe,” “It’s
A Hard Knock Life,” “Tomorrow,” ”I Think I’m Gonna Like It
Here,” “NYC,” and theme song,

Music Director Keith Levenson
and his blended orchestra of tour
and local musicians, and mimicked choreographer Liza Gennaro’s energetic, upbeat moves.
Gennaro, daughter of famous
choreographer, Peter Gennaro,
has restored her father’s lively
dance steps. Suzy Benzinger has created authentic-looking, 1930s
clothing, and award-winning
animal trainer William Berloni
has found an ideal dog, Sunny,
a 4-year-old rescue terrier mix,

with a big voice, an inspiration as
Annie. She’s a force to watch for
in the future. So’s plucky scene
stealer Lilly Mae Steward, also
making her national tour debut as
little orphan, Molly. She dances,
tumbles, sings, and draws sympathy and laughter like a seasoned performer. The ensembles
are also noteworthy.
By now, theatergoers know
the story of the plucky,optimistic,11-year-old orphan, Annie,
who has the great fortune of
spending the holiday with billionaire entrepreneur Warbucks,
and even greater fortune of his
wanting to adopt her. But Annie
insists she’s not an orphan - that
somewhere, out there, her par-
ents, were forced to leave her on
the doorstep of the orphanage 11
years ago, and they’ll want her
back - “Maybe”. With Warbucks’ connections
in the highest places, including
FDR and the FBI, they launch on
a nationwide search for her parents, offering a $50,000 reward,
attracting several imposters, including cruel, orphanage matron
“Aggie” Hannigan’s crooked
brother, Rooster, and his dumb
blonde moll, Lily. Lynn Andrews
is villainously despicable as liquor-swilling, little girl hating,
orphanage matron, Miss Hannigan, and brings the house down
with her solo, “Little Girls.” So’s
lanky Garrett Deagon as Rooster, who with Andrews and Lily
(Lucy Werner), kick up their
heels in “Easy Street”.
Although Gilgamesh Taggett
as Oliver “Daddy” Warbucks is
more stiff, formal and formidable, his singing voice and duets
with Annie in “Something Was
Missing,” and “I Don’t Need
Anything But You,” are touching. Taggett also interacts well
with Allan Baker, portraying
FDR, but Ashley Edler as Warbucks‘ kindly assistant, Grace
Farrell, is overshadowed here.
The story ends happily, with a
resounding finale. The US National tour opened
in late September in Detroit,
and continues through July 26,
2015, but nowhere else in New
England, so catch it now, while
you can.
NSMT’s ‘Les Miserables’ Fulfills a Dream Come True
By Sheila Barth
[email protected]
“I dreamed a dream” that “In
my life,” I would be able to see
the electrifying musical “Les
Miserables” on stage. I got that
opportunity to see it on Sunday
afternoon with my grandmother
(Sheila Barth), and I walked out
of the theater with chills. The
super-talented cast aroused such
stirring emotion on stage, it was
incredible. Music Director Andrew Bryan and the orchestra make every
song resound throughout the theater, while Dan Efros’ lighting
and Kurt Alger and Paula Peasley-Ninestein’s costumes make
us feel like we’re time-warped
back to the turbulent early 1800s,
in France.
“Les Miserables” is one of the
most complex stories I have ever
seen, and following it on a stage,
in the round, is a little challenging; but this cast, brilliantly led
by director-choreographer Marc
Robin, doesn’t require a large,
proscenium stage to enhance the
characters or the plot. Their dramatic singing voices and powerful acting are stirring. Although
I’m only 16, I could feel poor
Fantine’s (Daniella Dalli) pain
and agony, when she’s mistreated and must resort to selling her
hair, her precious locket and become a prostitute, to earn money
for her child, Cosette’s care. My
heart ached for Eponine (Lizzie
Klemperer) when she knew Marius, her true love, didn’t love her,
but Cosette instead. Tension bristles every time
foils Jean Valjean (Will Ray), a
cruelly mistreated, misjudged
prisoner, and his longtime pursuer, Detective Javert ( Danny
Rothman) confront each other.
While Javert performs his duties
strictly by the book, Valjean is,
by far, the more noble of the two.
He spent several years in jail for
stealing a bread to feed his starving nephew, and his jail term of
hard labor, was prolonged because he tried to escape to help
his family.
Sound designer Leon Rothenberg’s cannon shots erupting all
around us and the students’ uprisings, as they attempt rousing
the poor to fight against suppression, are even more exciting inthe-round, especially with the actors standing nearby in the aisles,

From a small idea to a small business
By Seth Daniel
It started as just a creative
way to get rid of some extra wood hanging around the
house, but for Everett native
Melanie (Malone) O'Neil and
her husband, Brian, that little
endeavor has turned into an
unexpected, yet thriving, family business.
The husband and wife duo
have now transitioned to fulltime work at their home decor
custom sign making business,
Rustic Marlin, and have employees and a burgeoning
small business.
"Two years ago, we had just
done an install on our wooden
floors and had left over wood,"
said Melanie. "When we got
married, we had always had
trouble finding gifts for others
that had a personal touch. We
just used some of the wood
from the floors and made two
signs as gifts for a friend and
that was it. Other friends saw
the signs and wanted us to
make some for them too. We
made a few here and there,
but more people kept asking.
Now, it's a small business and
it is really taking off."
The business includes making custom signs for the home
- signs that have a regional
motif (such as the seashore in
New England or cornfields in
Iowa) and spell out the family
name or any other thing desired.
The popularity amongst
friends led to a fledgling venture at Farmer's Markets in the
summer of 2013, Brian said.
"We would sell three or
four signs, which was a good
week," he said. "It got busier and busier, and then last
Christmas we did some events
and it really went up - to a
point where we were selling
100 at a time. We thought,
'Well, we might have something here.' Then in January
it never let up and we said,
'We definitely have something
here.'"
Melanie said they got to a
point where one of them had to
make the jump from their day
jobs as orders were piling up,
and it was no longer working
out for them to come home after work and make signs. Melanie, who has a background in
finance, stayed at her job and
Brian, who worked in marketing, took a soft leave from his
job - while still doing consulting on the side.
"It was a gradual thing for
both of us," she said. "One
day we would work on it after
work. Then, all the sudden, we
were working on our business
seven days a week - every day
after work and then all weekend. It was occupying our every thought and we had been
working on this for two years.
It was a small idea that turned
into a small business. Finally,
I went full-time as well. It is
a completely different world
and it's nice to be 100 percent
focused on our business now."
The big break, they said,
came from a retailer in Plymouth - who put in a big order
and put them under the gun.
"He wanted us to prove we
weren't just some guy working in a barn," said Brian. "He
asked for the order to be delivered in less than a week. We
had to call in our friends and
family to come in and help
us get it tone. They were delivered and he said he sold almost half of them right away."
Melanie grew up on Bennett Street and graduated Everett High School in 1995.
Now, she and her husband
live in the suburbs, but they've
lightened their commute by
transforming their home into
their workplace. They have
two full-time employees in the

"The business has taken
over our home, but it's great
to be in business for yourself,"
said Melanie. "We were really
shocked there was this kind of
demand out there. It's funny
because we really work well
together. We definitely work
on two different sides of the
brain, which is good. He's
looking more at the vision
and I'm looking more at the
details."
Rustic Marlin signs were
recently featured on 'Chronicle' and are now sold in 50
retail stores nationwide. In
order to take their business
to the next level and to raise
$15,000, the couple has taken
to the Internet in the form of a
Kickstarter campaign.
