Another look.

Residents enjoying a summer evening is one south Everett neighborhood weren’t going to let a reckless driver endanger their kids and get away with it.

Around 7:15 PM 9-1-1 began receiving calls of a car that had hit a tree with the driver running off. It was happening near 13th Avenue West and Holly Drive.

As Everett Police arrived they found a BMW sitting on top of a tree in the front yard of a house and several angry neighbors escorting a man by the arms from up the street and back to the accident scene.

The neighbors turned the man over to Everett Police and explained there were several families in their front yards enjoying the summer’s night when a black car turned off Holly Drive at a high rate of speed and went right into a front yard and on top of a tree.

The driver got out of the car and began running east on 13th Avenue West. Multiple neighbors gave chase and captured the driver several houses away.

They were bringing him back to the crash site as police arrived. “You could’ve killed one of our kids!” a neighbor yelled as an Everett Police Sergeant put handcuffs on the driver.

One man suffered a slight arm injury as a result of the crash. There were no other injuries.

The driver was detained for reckless driving by Everett Police. No word at this time if drugs or alcohol were involved.

Here are some MyEverettNews.com photos taken at the scene.

Hewitt arrest

Officers from the Regional Drug Task Force outside 1705 Hewitt Thursday night.

We received some calls about lots of police activity on Hewitt Avenue in Everett Thursday night. Officers from the Snohomish Regional Drug and Gang Task Force were serving a search warrant on a business/residence at 1705 Hewitt Avenue.

According to probable cause arrest paperwork obtained by MyEverettNews.com, 15 grams of heroin and 5 grams of meth were found in the underwear of one person associated with the address.

Inside the bedroom of a residence at the store a detective wrote that they found 273 grams of methamphetamine and 78 grams of heroin along with numerous digital scales. The value of the drugs is believed to be in excess of twenty thousand dollars.

One person was arrested and an Everett District Court judge on Friday found probable cause for the arrest. Prosecutors did not ask for any bail and the person was released on their own personal recognizance. Because there were no charges MyEverettNews.com is not naming the person. We’ll follow up if formal charges are filed.

Amateur Radios Give Everett Expert Help In Emergency Communications

field day

You can stop by until 2 PM Sunday to check out the equipment.

field day

Four different transmitters are being used this weekend.

You may be aware that in the event of a major earthquake cell phones can be down for a very long time. Phones, computer networks and other communications methods may be severely limited in their ability to connect but there’s a near hundred year old technology that always works. Amateur radio.

Starting early Saturday afternoon and going into late Sunday dozens of people are volunteering their time, equipment and experience in the annual A.A.R.L. Field Day. In Everett it’s being held at Harborview Park on Mukilteo Boulevard and is organized by the Snohomish County Hams Club. There are similar set ups all across the country this weekend.

Snohomish County Hams Club practices emergency preparedness by setting up amateur radio stations and powering them with batteries. There is also a contest in which hams can earn points by making contacts with other hams. This year there are four transmitters set up at Harborview Park. You’ll also find a solar array and other emergency equipment designed to work off the power grid. The public is welcome to tour and check out all of the equipment.

James Ludden is the City of Everett radio operator. He tells MyEverettNews.com that in the event of an emergency in the city volunteers can be sent to Everett fire stations to set up communications networking. They are able to patch in various equipment to communicate in case the cell, 800 mhz emergency network or other ways of current communications are unavailable. From the network of fire stations messages can be relayed back to the city’s emergency operations center in south Everett. Operators with portable radios can be placed aboard fire trucks to help crews do windshield surveys and provide damage reports.

Field Day

Snohomish County Executive Dave Somers (l) and Everett City Councilman Scott Bader (r) chat during Field Day Saturday.

Snohomish County Executive Dave Somers was at Harborview Park today checking out the activity and learning about the gear. Somers is new to being a ham radio operator having received his amateur license the year before last. “I built a crystal radio set in 6th grade and have wanted to do this for years,” said Somers. “I enjoy talking with people across the country and the farthest person I’ve talked with was in the Cook Islands.” Somers saw first hand the importance of ham radio operators during the Oso slide. “They were invaluable to us during the first days getting information into and out of Darrington,” Somers said.

Again if you’d like to see the operation it is going on until 2:00 PM Sunday afternoon at Harborview Park in Everett and if you’d like more information on emergency radio service in Everett and Snohomish County click here.
