Everett Hosts Needed For WSU Medical Students

WSU

Host homes are needed in Everett.

How would you like to host a future doctor? Hosts are needed in Everett for six one week periods over the next couple of years so Washington State University medical students can get familiar with communities where they will be working. Thanks to Terren Roloff at WSU here’s more information and a contact if you’d like to consider hosting a medical student in Everett…

Hosts in Everett are sought to welcome, support and orient Washington State University medical students to their communities during six weeks over a two-year period beginning in September.

While studying for their first two years at WSU Spokane, students will spend six individual weeks in the city where they will be located in their third and fourth years. Individuals and families are sought to help broaden the students’ connections and understanding of their communities during those weeks.

Since Spokane students will already have housing, only hosts in Everett, the Tri-Cities and Vancouver will provide housing.

“We look forward to having hosts introduce students to individuals who are actively involved in their communities, as well as provide fun activities for our students,” said John Tomkowiak, founding dean of the WSU Elson S. Floyd College of Medicine.

WSU’s charter class of 60 students will begin their four-year medical education program in August. Residents of Everett are being sought to host during:

Sept, 3-9, 2017
Nov. 26-Dec. 2, 2017
March 25-31, 2018
Aug. 19-25, 2018
Nov. 11-17, 2018
March 24-30, 2019

Hosts will be invited to participate in the college’s community nights, to be held on Wednesday each of the weeks at the respective WSU campuses.

For more information, please email community hosting coordinator Kyle Holbrook at kyle.holbrook@wsu.edu.

MyEverettNews.com received many inquiries yesterday regarding police activity in the 1500 block of 74th Street SE off Beverly Blvd.

Late in the afternoon Sheriff deputies arrested a male out of the house and later served a search warrant. This morning’s press release from the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office provides some detail.

Also here are a few MyEverettNews.com photos of the activity we observed. Click photo to enlarge.

A 31 year-old male was arrested yesterday at the 1500 block of 74th Ave SE around 4 p.m. and booked into the Snohomish County jail for 1st degree murder.

The Everett man is suspected of killing a 78 year-old Snohomish woman and assaulting her daughter, a 62 year-old woman also from Snohomish, earlier in the day at the 12120 block of 212th St SE in Snohomish. A 46 year-old man who witnessed the murder and assault, the suspect’s uncle, was taken into custody and booked on outstanding warrants.

The witness had been hired to do construction work on a bathroom at the victims’ residence and brought his nephew to assist him. Both victims were at the house while the work was being done. The suspect is believed to have attacked both women with a carpet knife before fleeing the residence with his uncle. The older victim died from her wounds and the younger victim remains in the hospital with life-threatening injuries. The uncle told detectives he and the suspect fled the residence and that the suspect threw a knife out of the vehicle as they were driving. The uncle dropped the suspect off at his home, where detectives located him.

Major crimes detectives have processed the scene where the assault and murder took place, as well served a search warrant on the suspect’s residence.

The cause and manner of death, as well as the confirmation of identity, of the 78 year-old woman is pending from the Snohomish County Medical Examiner.

A Classic 1962 Chevrolet is going to need a lot of restoration work after catching fire in a central Everett garage Sunday night.

About 8:15 PM the owner of the car went to start it inside the garage and it immediately caught fire.

He was able to get out of the car, exit the garage and call 9-1-1.

A fast response from the crew of Engine 4 led to a quick knock-down of the fire.

Support from additional Everett Fire crews as they arrived kept the fire mostly contained to the car and one wall of the garage.

The fire did not spread into the house though there will be a fair amount of smoke damage.

There were no injuries. The fire happened in the 200 block of 59th SE in central Everett.

As it was relatively close to our offices, MyEverettNews.com was able to get some good pictures of the quick stop and containment by Everett Firefighters.

Traffic was diverted for about an hour.

Everett Police had to shut down 4th Ave West between Everett Mall Way and 104th Sunday afternoon after multiple gunshots were fired from a car.

Patrol officers at the scene were too busy looking for evidence to talk with MyEverettNews.com but we did notice one officer with a sack containing several shell casings.

It also appeared one vehicle was hit. We do know there were not any injuries.

The road was shut down and traffic diverted for about an hour.

If you happened to be in the area of Car Toys Sunday afternoon around 5:30 PM and saw anything, Everett Police could use your help on their tip line at 425-257-8450.

We’ll update if we get any description information or other details to pass along.

Here are a few MyEverettNews.com photos from the scene.
