    Port of Everett News For Week of 10 June 2013

    Last updated 10 months ago

    Today in 1949, an Everett-based commercial fishing vessel with eight crew members on board went down in the seas off Alaska. Lost in the accident were five people: pioneer skipper Nick Mardesich, his oldest son Tony Mardesich, Vincent Vlastelica of Everett and two other crewmen. Surviving the disaster were Nick’s three younger sons August, Nick Jr., and Joseph, and nephew Anton Mardesich.
     
    Last week, the Port Commission authorized staff to solicit bids for a large-scale signage program at the Marina District. The project should be coming online by late 2013.

Nick Harper, Steve Hobbs and Reps. Marko Liias and Mike Sells.
