Peabody man found with hatchet in backpack

By GAYLA CAWLEY

LYNN — A Peabody man was arrested early Sunday morning after police saw him standing on the corner of Boston Street wearing a black backpack and holding a flashlight shortly after they responded to two motor vehicle break-ins in the area.

Timothy Quill, 44, was charged with possession of a burglarious instrument, unlawful possession of ammunition without a firearm identification card, violation of the city knife ordinance, carrying a dangerous weapon and Class B and E drug possession.

Police saw Quill in the area of 630 Boston St. around 1:40 a.m. holding the items and decided to stop and talk to him to find out what he was doing after the nearby break-ins. Quill allegedly told officers he was waiting for a ride. He was fidgety and looking around in all directions, Lynn Police Lt. Rick Donnelly said.

Police saw bulges in his sweatpants and jacket pockets. Officers asked Quill what was in his pockets and he allegedly claimed he had some change. Because of his behavior and concerned with what he had in the backpack, an officer looked down into it and saw a hatchet. Police pulled the hatchet out and could see the handle of a knife well over six inches, Donnelly said.

When police asked Quill why he was carrying the the items, he allegedly told them he had been kicked out of his house. He was arrested and brought into the police station. Police also found allen wrenches, a Hawaiian figurine, pocket knife and garden chairs in the backpack, Donnelly said.

Agganis basketball tournament tips off this week

FILE PHOTO
The Harry Agganis basketball tournament will begin on Thursday. This is the 62nd edition of the event. 

The 62nd Harry Agganis Invitational Basketball Tournament will take place starting Thursday, March 30 (5:30 p.m.) at the Harry Agganis Memorial Gymnasium at St. George Greek Orthodox Church on the Lynn Commons.  The event has taken place every year since 1956, a year after Agganis’ tragic death at the age of 26.  The St. George Greek community, where he was baptized Aristotle “Harry” George Agganis, was so moved that they established the Harry Agganis Tournament to perpetuate his name and life, celebrating one of the greatest Greek-American athletes ever.

Over 25 teams consisting of Greek-American players from all over the U.S. will participate. The three gymnasiums that will be utilized are located at St. George, Fecteau-Leary and St. Mary’s.   

The tournament tips off on Thursday (5:30 p.m.) at the Agganis Memorial Gymnasium with the St. George Youth Basketball teams consisting of grade school-aged children. They will be playing against St. Val’s of Peabody. Also on Thursday, two boys high school division games will be played in St. George vs. Andover and Roslindale vs. Weston A. The boys high school division will have new entries this year in teams from Bridgeport, CT, two squads from Weston, MA and New York.  A dozen teams will compete in a double elimination round.  The defending champs are from Manchester, NH.

Friday evening (6:45 p.m.), tournament action continues at the St. George and St. Mary’s facilities. The men’s division begins with St. George vs. Roslindale in the Agganis gym and St Val’s of Peabody vs. Albany, NY.  The boys high school division will continue at St. Mary’s with three additional preliminary games.

The action returns at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday morning. The games will be played all day long and into the evening at St. George and Fecteau-Leary. Ending the day will be quarterfinal games at St. George. Saturday afternoon, more St. George youth games will be played followed by the presentation of the Agganis Participation Awards.  

At 5:00 p.m., the 12th Annual “MAZ” Award will be presented.  This year’s recipient is Nicholas Tsiotos of Winthrop.  Established in 2006, the George K. Mazareas Recognition Award recognizes individuals who display tremendous passion, courage and maintain competitive spirit with fair play and sportsmanship on and off the court while playing in the tournament. These qualities were exemplified by George during his years as a participant in the tournament and especially now as he fights his battle with ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease).  The Harry Agganis Tournament Committee honors his life of leadership, courage and sportsmanship with this award in his name.

Teams from both boys high school division and men’s open division will be featured at St. George and Fecteau-Leary.

A women’s open division will also be featured in this year’s tournament, beginning Saturday afternoon. Saturday’s women’s division games will be played at St. George. The finals will be held on Sunday, also at St. George.

Admission is $5 for the day and you may switch gyms throughout the day.

Pizza shop owners face obstruction of justice

BOSTON — The owners of Giovanni’s Roast Beef & Pizza in Peabody were arrested and charged Wednesday in U.S. District Court with obstruction of justice for removing items from a safe deposit box following the execution of search warrants, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

Theodora “Dora” Panousos, 63, and Konstantinos “Kosta” Panousos, 37, face two counts of concealing a document and attempting to do so with the intent to impair the object’s availability for use in an official proceeding.  

They were released on bond following an appearance before U.S. District Court Magistrate Judge David Hennessy.

The pair were under investigation for tax evasion and filing false tax returns, specifically for failing to report all of the shop’s gross income, according to the complaint.

Last month, investigators executed search warrants at Giovanni’s restaurant and at Dora’s home and seized safe deposit box keys.  

That same morning, Dora and Kosta were served with grand jury subpoenas for records and tangible objects “pertaining to the payment, receipt, transfer or storage of money or other things of value.”

Lynn police warn of possible charity scam

Following the searches, and after Dora and Kosta were served with the subpoenas, the two allegedly went to a bank and emptied a safe deposit box except for a few pieces of jewelry, authorities said. Surveillance footage allegedly showed Dora entering the bank with an empty tote bag and leaving the bank with what appeared to be items from the safe deposit box in the tote bag.

Minutes later, Dora and Kosta arrived at a second bank where Dora had another safe deposit box. Dora told bank employees she had lost the keys and requested that they have the box drilled. But before they could do so, investigators executed a search warrant for the box and discovered that it contained about $415,000 in cash. Another box leased by Dora was found to contain about $224,220 in cash.

The pair face up to 20 years in prison, three years of probation and a $250,000 fine.

Harrington principal among 3 super finalists

By ADAM SWIFT

PEABODY — Debra Ruggiero, principal of the Harrington Elementary School in Lynn, is one of three finalists for superintendent in Peabody.

Somerville High School Headmaster John Oteri and Gloucester Assistant Superintendent Arthur Unobskey are the other two finalists to replace interim Superintendent Herb Levine.

“I’m certainly very excited and honored that they see me as a candidate who is viable to be superintendent,” Ruggiero said. “I’ve worked very hard in my career, and I hope (the School Committee) sees that in the site visits and final interview.”

Over the coming weeks, the Peabody School Committee will be visiting the home school districts of the three finalists followed by visits by the finalists to Peabody and a final interview before the committee.E

School Committee members will visit Lynn on March 30, and Ruggiero said she will be visiting Peabody in April for the site visit and interview. During the visit to Peabody, the finalists will meet with city leaders, such as the police and fire chiefs, as well as school officials.

Ruggiero said she understands it is a big jump from elementary school principal, but said she believes she has the educational experience to make her a qualified candidate for the position. Ruggiero is also the only superintendent candidate who calls Peabody home.

“I know that it is a key part that they are looking for someone to be invested in Peabody as a whole, whether they are a resident or not,” said Ruggiero. “I have lived in Peabody for a long time, and have been involved, particularly when my children were younger.”

Stability is principal concern in Swampscott

At the first round of interviews with the School Committee earlier this week, Oteri said he places a premium on hiring educators who go above and beyond and are able to communicate clearly and concisely.

“The objective (in a classroom) should be very clear,” Oteri said. “I should go in the classroom, a grandmother should be able to go in there and know what they are doing within five minutes.”

Unobskey, who met with the School Committee last week, said he has an educational philosophy that serves all kids and makes sure all teachers are heard. He said he’s done his research on Peabody and would love to be a part of the community.

“I really think that the diversity and the size is a wonderful combination for me,” Unobskey said.

Mayor Edward A. Bettencourt Jr. said he is happy with the candidates the School Committee selected to move forward to the next round of the process.

“The superintendent in Peabody is a very challenging position and we want to make sure the next superintendent is the right person to handle all the responsibilities of the position,” said Bettencourt. “This is the most important decision the School Committee will make, and the three candidates are worthy to continue the process and for us to learn more about.”

School Committee member Beverley Griffin Dunne voted against moving forward with the three finalists, citing the candidates’ lack of experience as superintendents.

“I’m personally disappointed, I had hoped we would have had someone apply who had been a superintendent, possibly in a smaller district,” said Dunne. “Peabody is a big district with a lot of moving parts, I think someone with experience as a superintendent would be better than someone who has not been a superintendent before.”

The position was advertised with a salary range of $175,000-$190,000 with a three-year initial contract. The official posted start date is July 1.

Dunne said she is also concerned about the salary level, since when it was approved, she said the committee was basing those numbers on bringing in someone with superintendent experience.

“I was willing to pay for someone with experience,” said Dunne. “Now it’s a really good salary range for someone who has not been a superintendent. All three finalists are fine people, and I think they will make fine superintendents, just not in Peabody … this is a huge job.”

In an exciting and fun final game, the boys from the Welch school were able to finish the season as the league and playoff champions, defeating a very talented Burke team, 35-20.

“The PEBL is a great developmental league in which our students learn the fundamentals of basketball, learn about the rules of the game and most importantly sportsmanship and teamwork,” Welch coach Dennis Desroches said. “The experiences and skills our kids learned are invaluable and will last a lifetime.

We are very appreciative to be part of this league. We congratulate the Burke School on making the finals and we are extremely proud of our Welch School Wildcats!”

The Welch team would like to thank Peabody Mayor Ted Bettencourt for supporting our student athletes, as well as all the officials, game managers, volunteers and the Peabody Recreation Department for a great season.

Eagles hold high expectations on the diamond

Andrew Selima and the Eagles are hoping for a strong season on the diamond this spring. 

By STEVE KRAUSE

DANVERS — When we last saw the St. John’s Prep baseball team in action, the Eagles were a hard-luck loser to Braintree High in the state Division 1A final.

The Eagles lost to Braintree and pitcher Scott Creedon, 3-2, on a ninth-inning walkoff. It was the second year in a row where The Prep lost to Braintree and Creedon, prompting Eagles coach Dan Letarte to joke, “maybe we have a chance this year” as Creedon is now in college.

That doesn’t detract from the fine year St. John’s had in 2016. The Eagles were 20-8 and, after dropping the first game of the Super 1A tournament to Braintree, climbed all the way to force a winner-take-all game.

This year, the season starts early for the Eagles –April 3 at Catholic Memorial. Two days later, they’re home against Malden Catholic, and the following Saturday they’re at Peabody.

“We were outside today (Wednesday),” said Letarte. “We had a couple of nice days this week, but it got real cold out there. Lots of kids in ski masks.”

The Prep players went indoors Wednesday night to hit in the batting cages.

Letarte is optimistic this season.

“I think we have a solid club,”he said. “We have some experience, good defense, and hitting. We also have some pitching. We should be able to compete pretty well.”

Peabody’s Tyler Mcgregor is penciled in as the starting third baseman. Also, Letarte has some legitimate thumpers coming back. Senior Andrew Selima had five homers and hit .320 last season. Junior Michael Yarin, who was the football team’s quarterback last fall, has already committed to the University of Connecticut. He’ll probably play second this year. A season ago, Yarin hit .320 and had 25 RBI.

Letarte is expecting big things from shortstop Chris Francoeur, who, in addition to being a defensive wizard only had one error in 28 games in 2016, is among the area’s best high school golfers.

“His defense is going to be a key for us,” said Letarte. “We had another good one in Max Burt (now at Northeastern). It’s so important.”

Also back is right fielder Frank DiOrio, who also had five homers last season and knocked in 22 runs,

As for pitching, the Eagles are going to be young this season, with Letarte looking down the road at a very good staff in the next few years. There’s Jack Sanderson, a junior, “and he’s throwing 88 right now, and has seem some Division 1 interest. Casey Bussone, who will attend MIT, also throws in the high 80s.

“Other than that,” he said, “we have a bunch of rookies.”

Still, Letarte isn’t backing down from The Prep’s usual high expectations in all sports.

“I would like to see us get back to the Super 8,” he said, “and this time, frankly, win and close it out. We haven’t been able to do that.

“I don’t think that’s being cocky. It’s a very realistic goal.”

The Catholic Conference will be among the strongest leagues around, if not the strongest. Letarte said BC High, Xaverian and Malden Catholic are always strong.

Also in the higher Division 1 echelon are St. John’s of Shrewsbury, Walpole and Lincoln Sudbury.

“They’re all going to be in the hunt, and we play them all.”

English baseball aims for bounce back season

ITEM PHOTO BY KATIE MORRISON
Briston Maynard plays catch in English’s parking lot during Tuesday’s tryouts.

By KATIE MORRISON

The Lynn English baseball team dealt with its fair share of adversity last season. Some injuries to starters in key positions left the Bulldogs fighting an uphill battle, and English finished with the worst record (6-13) since head coach Joe Caponigro took over the program in 2004.

This season, the Bulldogs are loaded with good, young talent, and are looking to right the ship. And nobody’s guaranteed a position; Caponigro says that there’s plenty of competition for playing time, and it remains to be seen how it will all shake out.

“Everything is up for grabs,” Caponigro said. “We graduated a bunch of seniors, and there’s always someone who could step up. There’s been spirited competition, and many capable individuals.”

That being said, English is not without some upperclassmen leadership. A few seasoned veterans in the senior and junior classes will look to lead the Bulldogs.

On the mound, Caponigro pencils in Dax Billingsley and Devin Curley, both juniors who logged quality innings for English last year. There are also some sophomores and freshmen that could compete for a starting job, and reinforce the Bulldogs’ bullpen.

Juniors Briston Maynard, in his third year with the varsity team, Wilbur Rosario, Billy Allen and Alex Rodriguez as well as seniors Gio Morales and JC Gonzalez are some of the more seasoned veterans on the squad.

Last year’s subpar record wasn’t for lack of effort or talent, but even though the Bulldogs logged wins against playoff teams like Peabody and Classical, things just never came together for English.

But one thing is for sure. The Bulldogs are hungry to get back on track in 2017.

“What we’ve seen is that they’re hungry and working hard,” Caponigro said. “We want guys who are hungry and that work their tails off. They know nothing is going to be handed to them. It’s good to see.”

English will have youth on its side as well. Caponigro says the sophomore class, especially, looks very promising.

“They’re making some heads turn,” he said. “I think some of them will be vying for some serious playing time. We don’t have the full picture yet, but I do think we have some good players in the sophomore and freshmen classes.”

The English High gym was chaotic Tuesday evening as English’s tryouts continued. With outdoor action severely limited thanks to last week’s snowfall, Caponigro says it’s hard to see what he truly has in the large group of prospective players when the team is sequestered indoors.

But as far as the coach can tell, there are some strengths emerging. The Bulldogs return both experienced pitchers and catchers, which gives them a head start on the mound. And as far as fielding goes, English has some slick and sure-handed infielders that can flash some leather.

The outfield is still a work in progress; not many fly balls can be tracked down in the confines of the gym.

But the Bulldogs are hoping to get outside soon. English is hoping to play at the Malden Catholic jamboree this Saturday on MC’s turf fields, which should help the team get live looks and put the players in game situations. If the weather doesn’t cooperate, the Bulldogs have a few scrimmages to look forward to next week.

Learn about ‘Being Mortal’ in Peabody

 

PEABODY The Jeffrey and Susan Brudnick Center for Living is showing “Being Mortal,” a documentary about end-of-life decision making, from 3-5 p.m. Thursday at 240 Lynnfield St. in Peabody.

A discussion on setting end-of-life goals and preferences will follow the screening with industry experts, including a physician, social worker, nurse and spiritual counselor guiding the conversation.

The Brudnick Center is operated by Chelsea Jewish Lifecare. The senior care provider serves 800 people daily at facilities in Peabody and Chelsea.

“Being Mortal” delves into the hopes of patients and families facing terminal illness. The film investigates the practice of caring for the dying and explores the relationships between patients and their doctors.

It follows a surgeon, Dr. Atul Gawande, as he shares stories from the people and families he encounters. When Gawande’s own father gets cancer, his search for answers about how best to care for the dying becomes a personal quest.

The film sheds light on how a medical system focused on a cure often leaves out the sensitive conversations that need to happen so a patient’s true wishes can be known and honored at the end.

“Being Mortal” underscores the importance of people-planning ahead and talking with family members about end-of-life decisions. An estimated 70 percent of Americans say they would prefer to die at home, but most die in hospitals and institutions.

It is estimated 90 percent of Americans know they should have conversations about end-of-life care, yet only 30 percent have done so.

Deadliest fire month demands a plan

Refreshments will be served and attendees will have the opportunity to speak with the panelists on a one-to-one basis.

In February 2015, “Being Mortal” aired nationally on the PBS program “Frontline.” The free screening is made possible by a grant from The John and Wauna Harman Foundation in partnership with the Hospice Foundation of America.

For more information about the film, visit http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/frontline/film/being-mortal. The film is adapted from Gawande’s 2014 nationally best-selling book of the same name.

For more information about the event or to make reservation, contact Jill Hurley at jhurley@chelseajewish.org or (617) 889- 0779.

Chelsea Jewish Lifecare employs more than 1,000 people and offers a full continuum of services. The Chelsea Jewish Foundation (www.chelseajewish.org) is redefining senior care and re-envisioning what life should be like for those living with disabling conditions.

The elder-care community includes a wide array of skilled and short-term rehab residences, traditional and specialized assisted living options, memory care, independent living, adult day health, geriatric care management, home care, personal care and hospice agencies that deliver customized and compassionate care.

Lynn fashionistas strut their prom stuff

ITEM PHOTO BY OWEN O’ROURKE
Jordyn Summerlin gets her makeup applied before Lynn Vocational Technical Institute’s Prom Fashion Show.

By DAVID WILSON

LYNN — We’ll be impressed. That’s what 17-year-old Jordyn Summerlin says with a coy smile from her makeup chair.

Come on; all we asked for was a hint about one of her two dresses, minutes before the start of Lynn Vocational Technical Institute’s second annual Prom Fashion Show.

Instead, the junior and soon-to-be model muses over a platter of lipsticks; what to choose, what to choose? After a pause, she picks one.

Summerlin was one of the models from the school’s approximately 20-member Fashion Club, an afterschool activity program. Club adviser Menervia Akers explained the theme of Thursday’s show was “Monte Carlo.”

Monte Carlo can be described as a “casino-night theme,” Akers says, rattling off black, white and red as signature colors.   

Amayni Wallace just turned 15. In a flashy red gown, the freshman says she’s a little nervous; after all, her dad will be watching.

Before the show, backstage is a blur of selfies; hands on hips — in one case, hand behind the head — as students eagerly pose in front of a photo backdrop. Girls turn to the side, staring into the camera with soft smiles. Boys stand straight-on, hands in pockets, chins tilted up.

As the show begins, Danny Donator, who auditioned for “America’s Got Talent,” and had a sleek prom look himself, performed “24K Magic” by Bruno Mars. Models step out; at times, the senior spins girls as they pass.

Donator’s singing appears to inspire. Girls, some in very-high heels, keep a powerful gait to the beat. Boys give off a relaxed energy, one slipping off his jacket mid-walk and slinging it over his shoulder.

Summerlin, less than an hour after leaving us in suspense over her dress, struts the makeshift runway — a hallway of the school’s Annex Building — in a black, strapless, floor-length gown patterned with red roses.

The passing models are followed by 19-year-old Deavonie Cowan’s video camera. It was the senior’s first time filming the show. As models reach the end of the runway, they serve a few final poses in front of a backdrop decorated with casino dice.

From trial to triumph for Lynn artist

Watching the show, it’s hard to know what gives these students such confidence and attitude; perhaps they were motivated by the advice Akers says she gives.

“Pretend you’re in your room … in your own world … doing your thing,” she says moments before the show’s start, in between directing the finishing touches. “The moment’s yours.”

Fashion and other elements of the show were contributed by David’s Bridal in Danvers; A Voyiagis Tuxedos in Lynn; The Ultimate in Peabody; Classic Tuxedo in Middleton; Russo Tux Dress & Limousine in Stoneham; Kreative Hair Design by Joan in Lynn; Mary Kay Makeup in Lynn; Monique Bazile on makeup; Treadwell’s Ice Cream in Peabody; Beauty Supply Supermarket in Lynn; Darque Tan in Swampscott; About Face Skin Salon in Lynn and ITM In the Mak’n.

Lynn principal candidate for Peabody super

ITEM PHOTO BY ADAM SWIFT

By ADAM SWIFT

PEABODY — Harrington Elementary School Principal Debra Ruggiero, a longtime fixture in Lynn education, is one of six candidates looking to take over the top spot in the Peabody schools.

Ruggiero was one of three candidates interviewed by the Peabody School Committee Wednesday night for the superintendent’s position. The committee will interview the remaining three candidates Monday night at City Hall.

“I’m a 24-year resident of Peabody with 32 years of experience in education,” said Ruggiero. “I am humbled and honored that you have chosen me as a viable candidate for the superintendent post.”

Ruggiero has experience as a regular education, curriculum and instruction, and special education teacher, as well as a principal.

“I have always been a proactive, collaborative, data-driven and reflective educator,” she said. “Through these practices, I’ve been able to work with teachers, parents, district and state in helping a school move from a Level 4 school to a Level 1 school.”

All Massachusetts districts and schools with sufficient data are classified into one of five accountability and assistance levels, with the highest performing in Level 1 and the lowest performing in Level 5.

At the Harrington School, Ruggiero said she has been able to put into practice her educational philosophy of focusing on the whole child, not just the academic side of a student. She also said schools must look at teaching to the individual abilities of the students and innovative ways to help them learn.

“It’s not about the the tests,” Ruggiero said. “It’s about teaching skills and strategies where students can learn no matter what is in front of them.”

Lynn fashionistas strut their prom stuff

As the only Peabody resident in the field of six candidates being interviewed, Ruggiero said she has a deep connection to the city. Her children went through the Peabody school system and Ruggiero has been involved in youth sports, among other activities.

The school committee also interviewed Laura Chesson, an assistant superintendent in Arlington, and Arthur Unobskey, an assistant superintendent in Gloucester, on Wednesday night.

The committee is scheduled to interview Peter Badalament, former principal of Concord-Carlisle High School; Lourenco Garcia, principal at Revere High School; and John Oteri, headmaster at Somerville High School, on Monday.

The six candidates were selected from 19 applicants by the Massachusetts Association of School Committees (MASC), which was hired by the city to oversee the superintendent search process. It is expected that after the interviews are finished, the school committee will conduct site visits in the home districts of several of the candidates, with an eye toward hiring a replacement for interim superintendent Herb Levine within the next three to four weeks.

Mayor Edward A. Bettencourt Jr. said he was happy with the quality of the candidates brought forward by the MASC.

The new superintendent would start work in Peabody on July 1.

MBTA could cut some local bus stops

By THOMAS GRILLO

SAUGUS — The MBTA plans to ax 13 local bus stops and others in Lynn and neighboring communities, claiming they are rarely, if ever, used.

The T surveyed more than 7,500 bus stops in its system to determine how often they are used, identify barriers to accessibility, determine if the locations meet safety guidelines and whether capital improvements are necessary.  

If the transit agency approves the changes, Saugus stands to lose the most in The Item coverage area. Other stops on the cut list include four in Swampscott, two in Nahant and one each in Lynn, Peabody and Revere.

But if they go, it appears they won’t be missed. In nine of the 22 stops, the T found that the average number of daily boarding was zero. In all the others, fewer than two people boarded the buses each day.

Still, Michael Serino, the Saugus liaison to the transit agency, said he can’t understand why the T would choose to drop any stops.

“It doesn’t make any sense to me because they have to drive by them any how,” he said. “There are a couple on Broadway and on Walnut Street that should not go. We’re still looking at and evaluating the list.”

Buses serve more customers than any individual train line, according to MBTA data. In fiscal 2015, there were about 113 million MBTA bus trips, compared to about 88 million on the Red Line, the busiest subway line.

On a recent morning, there was no one waiting at the Lynnfield Street at Great Woods Road stop, the only one in Lynn that made the list. The same was true for a pair of stops in Saugus at 153 and 221 Main St. that are also targeted for elimination.

The MBTA said its goal is to improve service by making bus stops accessible, convenient and safe for boarding and disembarking.

If stops are eliminated, typically there is another within 750 feet of the stop proposed for elimination, the T said.

Do you recognize this MBTA assault suspect?

In terms of handicap accessibility, the T identified several examples of  “critical” bus stops including one on Walnut Street opposite Birchwood Avenue in Saugus. The bus stop sign is behind a guardrail next to a body of water and riders must board in the breakdown lane.

A review of bus stops throughout the T’s system identified 209, less than 3 percent, where there is no accessible path to board from a sidewalk so that passengers must get on and off the bus in the street.

Laura Brelsford, the MBTA’s assistant general manager for accessibility, said 133 of those stops are very strong candidates for elimination, with 99 percent of them serving fewer than 10 riders per day.

The agency said it won’t take any action until it hears from communities. It wants to know if a municipality has road projects underway to improve accessibility at bus stops or if there are other factors that local officials would like the MBTA to consider before final decisions are made.  

The MBTA is hoping to receive feedback from cities and towns by April so it may take steps during construction season to eliminate bus stops no longer needed or unsafe, improve signs or make capital improvements to increase accessibility and improve customers’ experience.

North Shore experiences March madness

ITEM PHOTO BY JIM WILSON
Samuel Alexander of Lynn photographs pounding surf along Lynn Shore Drive at high tide.

By LEAH DEARBORN

LYNN — Foul weather friends flocked to the oceanside Tuesday to catch a glimpse of nature’s gnarlier side during Winter Storm Stella.  

“This is unbelievable,” said Troy Fisher of Peabody, who got out of his car on the Lynn Shore Drive to capture images of wave whitecaps breaking.

Lynn resident Samuel Alexander, armed against the elements with a face mask and a hat, got as close as he could to the water.

He said he saw surfers in the chop as he walked part of the Nahant Causeway during the last winter storm, a trek he was in the process of repeating despite the bitter conditions.

“I’m from Ireland, so I’m used to it,” said Esther Finn of Swampscott, formerly of Galway, as she walked into the wind near Red Rock Park. “This is nothing.”

Revere resident Dustin Lockhart stopped by Revere Beach after work to watch the waves at high tide. He said storms in Wyoming, where he originally hails from, tend to be less wet.

Speaking by phone mid-morning, Andrew Hall, the Department of Public Works commissioner in Lynn, said it was difficult to anticipate the amount of damage Stella might cause.

“We’re prepared for the worst and expect the best,” said Hall.

Throughout the day, downed wires and fallen branches occurred as snow accumulated. As of 4 p.m., there were 507 power outages across the state, affecting an estimated 38,144 customers, according to a National Grid power outage map.

On Eastern Avenue by the Swampscott line, an MBTA bus slid into a pole while attempting to turn.

“They should know better,” said resident Elliot London as he snowblowed his yard. London said the turn is a common spot for accidents in winter weather.  

Storm topples tree onto Swampscott home

Gino Cresta, Swampscott DPW director, said before Stella, the town has spent about $220,000 on snow removal, which pays for DPW staff, private contractors and their supplies, salt and sand.

At about 11 a.m., Cresta said the biggest issue with the storm was visibility, but that the storm forecast had downgraded. More than six hours later, after a tree landed on a car and a house on Roy Street, downing wires and knocking out power on the road, he said that was a more serious case of what was happening all over town.

Large branches were down all over the place, he said, and employees had to be pulled off their plow routes at times to deal with all of the downed tree limbs. Wind was an issue, and the worst part of storm clean-up was heavy snow that small trucks had trouble pushing, Cresta said.

In Peabody, Mayor Edward A. Bettencourt Jr. said that the city budgets about $800,000 for storm cleanup every year.

Bettencourt said the amount spent fluctuates from year to year, with $3 million spent during the unusually snowy winter of 2015. Last year, he said the city remained right on budget.

John Tomasz, Lynnfield DPW director, said around 11:30 a.m. that the storm had been “a piece of cake” up until that point. Before Tuesday’s storm, he estimated that the town had spent around $300,000 in snow removal costs this winter.

Tomasz said the wind makes it frustrating for crews, as it blows snow back into the road. Heavy snow is also harder to push back, he added.

About six hours later, he said crews were in clean-up mode, scraping and cleaning the roads. Nothing major happened in town from the storm, he said, with “a lot of small stuff here and there.”

“It really wasn’t that bad with the trees,” Tomasz said. “I thought it was going to be a horror show.”

Fire shuts down Peabody water treatment plant

By ADAM SWIFT

PEABODY A three-alarm fire at a city water treatment plant shut down the Coolidge Avenue facility Monday night.

No one was injured in the fire, which started around 7:30 p.m. A Massachusetts Hazmat team was called to the scene for air quality and water quality testing as a precaution.

Fire crews battled the stubborn blaze throughout the night, with most crews leaving the scene by 5 a.m. Tuesday, according to Peabody Deputy Fire Chief Joe Daly.

“The fire got into some of the pockets of the roof that were inaccessible,” making it difficult to battle the fire at time, Daly said.

Breaking new ground for veterans

The cause of the fire is under investigation by Peabody fire prevention and state police, according to Daly.

City officials said residents should not be affected by the fire.

“It was a rough night last night, but there was no break in water service to South Peabody,” said Mayor Edward A. Bettencourt Jr. “The Massachusetts Water Resource Authority will be providing water. They already provide a percentage of water to the city. That will just be enhanced now while the water treatment plant is not in operation.”

Point of Pines prepares for pounding

Richie Sarro moves a grill in preparations for the heavy snow and high winds.

By BRIDGET TURCOTTE

With dangerous weather conditions expected during today’s winter storm, many communities are taking precautions.

Current forecasts project 12-18 inches of snow across most of the state, high winds and coastal flooding. Snow is expected to fall at a rate of 2-4 inches per hour, causing whiteout conditions.

A snow emergency has been declared in Revere and a parking ban will start at 6 a.m. today. Revere Public Schools and all city offices will be closed.

Ward 5 city councilor John Powers, who represents many of the city’s waterfront neighborhoods, said flooding typically depends on the tide.

“My understanding is that we’re probably going to have a 13-foot tide (today) and that’s above normal, but hopefully not too much above normal,” Powers said.

A tide gate near the train tracks and a system that involves catch basins for storm water and two pump houses are in place to prevent flooding during large storms like today’s, he said.

“Under normal conditions, the gate opens and closes automatically,” Powers said. “It’s closed now for the storm.”

Rice Avenue residents Nicole Capozzi and Richie Sarro said their home hasn’t been flooded in years. Howling winds, however, are another issue.

“The wind here is very very strong,” said Capozzi. “It’s very loud. During the last storm, I looked out the window and the grill was in the neighbor’s yard.”

To prepare for storms, they move their lawn furniture and grill to an alcove where it’s protected from the wind.

Sarro, who grew up in the Point of Pines neighborhood, said he believes the addition of dune grass helps keep the flood water at bay.

“Years ago, I was here during the 1978 storm,” he said. “I remember my mom was putting on her makeup. I looked out the window and there was a wall of water coming down the road. There was a helicopter on the roof asking ‘are you people alright?’ and I remember holding the dog. But we haven’t had anything like that in a long time.”

Cheryl Rebholz, a Rice Avenue resident, said she hasn’t had water in her basement for a few years, but still errs on the side of caution.

“We checked the pump in our basement yesterday,” Rebholz said. “All we can do is hope for the best.”

Lynn school election snowed out

A list of emergency arteries can be found on the Revere Police Department’s website. Cars parked on the emergency roads will be towed. The MBTA Wonderland Garage will be available to residents who don’t have off-street parking for a $5 rate from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m.

In a statement, The Revere Department of Public Works, Police Department and Mayor Brian Arrigo’s office asked residents to avoid travel. In addition to high rates of snow, MEMA has advised residents to be aware of the potential for coastal flooding, particularly during high tide at 1:29 p.m.

The city advised residents of the Beachmont, Point of Pines and Oak Island neighborhoods to be cautious.

A parking ban in Lynn began at midnight and all Lynn Public Schools are closed today, according to the city’s website.

All cars are required to be removed from the city’s streets and sidewalks until the ban is lifted. Residents without off-street parking can use the school’s parking lots starting at 5 p.m. on Monday.

Parking is also available at the Ellis Street Municipal lot on the School Street side and at the MBTA parking garage at Broad and Market Streets.

Trash and recycling will not be collected today. Collection will run on a one-day delay for the remainder of the week.

An emergency parking ban went into effect in Peabody at 3 a.m. today. During a snow emergency, blue lights on the city’s traffic poles will flash, indicating that parking on the streets is prohibited.

For residents who do not have off-street parking, alternative parking options may be available. For more information, contact 978-538-6312.

Peabody Public Schools, City Hall and other municipal offices are closed today.

Saugus Public Schools are also closed.

Saugus will  have a parking ban, effective today at 6 a.m., until 8 a.m. on Wednesday morning.  Motor vehicles must be moved from streets in order for the town to have roadways cleared, plowed, salted and sanded for public safety and emergency vehicle access. Any vehicles remaining on the streets may be ticketed and towed, according to Town Manager Scott Crabtree.

Parking is available in the Saugus High School lot, located at 1 Pearce Memorial Drive. The upper lot on the left has been designated as parking space for emergency overflow parking.

Crabtree said he’s urging residents to be safe and to check on family members and neighbors during the storm.

Trash and recycling collection will be delayed by one day from Wednesday through Saturday, March 18. Residents can contact solid waste and recycling coordinator Lorna Cerbone at 781-231- 4036 for more information.

Trash pickup is canceled in Marblehead, Peabody, Swampscott and Lynnfield today. In Revere, collection will begin early at 5 a.m. and remain on schedule throughout the week.

The town of Nahant has a winter parking ban that extends from Dec. 21 to March 20. The ban prohibits on-street parking from midnight until 6 a.m. Residents can apply for a parking waiver to be exempt from the ban.

In the event of a snow emergency, all cars must be removed from the street, including those with a parking waiver, or they will be ticketed and towed at the owner’s expense.

The Johnson Elementary School is closed.

A parking ban, beginning at 6 a.m. on Tuesday, will last for 24 hours in Swampscott, according to Department of Public Works director Gino Cresta.

Swampscott Public Schools and Swampscott Town Hall are closed.

School is canceled in Lynnfield. The town will follow its normal winter parking ban, which prohibits cars from being parked on the road from 1 a.m. to 7 a.m.

Keolis Commuter Services, operator of the MBTA Commuter Rail, said Monday that it will be operating at “Blue” level of service today. This means the normal weekday commuter rail schedule will be reduced by one-third and express trains will make local stops. Passengers should expect delays of between 15 and 25 minutes across the system.

“Extremely fast snowfall rates will create dangerous roadway conditions and we urge everyone to be prepared to stay off the roads, take public transit if necessary and work from home if possible,” said Gov. Charlie Baker in a statement.

Breaking new ground for veterans

Peabody deserves praise for Veterans Services Director Stephen Patten’s initiative to provide free legal services for men and women who served their country.

Porcello Law Offices in Salem is Peabody’s new partner in a campaign to help veterans and their families navigate the legal system. The effort to connect veterans with the legal help they need starts with a Porcello attorney spending two days a month at the Torigian Community Life Center, a Peabody location that counts many veterans among its residents.

The legal aid program represents a progressive approach by Patten and the city to reach out to veterans and it is a tribute to Porcello, a firm founded by a veteran.

Patten’s initiative mirrors the collaboration by Lynn doctors and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs to ensure local veterans have a convenient local source for medical care. Instead of driving to a Veterans Affairs hospital out of town, veterans can get health care in the local Boston Street clinic.

The facility is an enduring tribute to former U.S. Rep. John Tierney who fought to get federal money for the clinic after vowing he would ensure no veteran living in the Sixth Congressional District had to travel more than 15 miles from home to receive care.

U.S. Rep. Seth Moulton has worked to provide support for the clinic and fellow veterans who use its services, including mental health counseling and other help available in part through interactive technology connecting the clinic with other medical offices.

Patten’s efforts and the Lynn clinic’s success buttresses work by the Lynn Housing Authority and Neighborhood Development to end homelessness among local veterans. Combine these efforts  with strong commitments to veterans in surrounding communities, including Saugus, Swampscott and Revere, then it is clear strong potential exists to do more for veterans.

This potential is only limited by the imagination and drive of veterans old and young, women and men, representing the full spectrum of veterans.

New efforts on the part of veterans can begin with Moulton obtaining the federal resources needed to conduct a valuable “hyper survey” of Lynn area and North Shore veterans. This study can assess in detail and accurately gauge the needs and challenges facing veterans.

Don’t bury Lynn’s future: Vote yes on schools

So much more can be done on behalf of veterans.

Lynn English High School’s Marine Corps Junior Reserve Officers’ Training Corps cadets can be harnessed to provide services to veterans beyond the good work the students already perform under Sgt. Major Ken Oswald’s leadership.

Older veterans need companionship assistance and there is a historic need for young people to assist in oral history projects aimed at preserving the memories and experiences of the few remaining World War II veterans as well as Korean War veterans.

There is also a compelling need for younger veterans to have opportunities to define and shape the services and assistance they need. They can work with Moulton, Patten and other veterans affairs experts, including Lynn Veterans Service Director Michael Sweeney, to outline long-range veterans assistance plans.

Veterans have done their share for their country. But the work to be done on their behalf is just beginning.

Peabody’s Manganiello emerges as a leader at Gordon

Nico Manganiello, a junior at Gordon College, is embracing his role as a captain on the men’s lacrosse team. 

By JOSHUA KUMMINS

A new era is underway for the Gordon College men’s lacrosse team.

With 14 new players on the roster after a 1-14 season in 2016, there is no player head coach Warren Shumate wanted to be a leader for his group than Peabody’s Nico Manganiello.

“We have some good seniors on the team who lead as well, but the team knew and I knew that Nico was going to be a captain of this team at some point,” Shumate said. “People just want to be around him.”

Gordon has four captains, with Manganiello the only junior in that group.

A product of Hebron Academy in Maine, Manganiello is off to another great start on the field. He scored five goals in the Fighting Scots’ season-opening win over Maine Maritime and has totaled nine on the season, including two in their most recent contests against Salem State, an 8-6 win, and Mount Ida, a 15-11 loss.

“I’ve been working on my shot the most,” Manganiello said. “I’m definitely trying to take better angle shots and more overhand shots. I think it starts with me being a captain, so if I shoot overhand then everyone else has to. That really helps us get more shots on net as a team, and shots that are harder to stop.”

It may still be early in the season, but Manganiello is already diving head-first into his new leadership role. He was an important player on the field right from the start of his career up in Wenham, combining for 52 goals and 73 points over his first two seasons. He scored 29 goals as a freshman to rank fourth on the team, while finishing last season with 23 slotted him up to third.

The Fighting Scots entered the week and Monday’s game at Becker, their third-to-last contest before Commonwealth Coast Conference (CCC) play, with a 2-2 record.

As Manganiello’s high school career came to an end, Gordon and nearby rival Endicott were atop his list of colleges. Shumate’s mission and the opportunity to play right away while helping to rebuild a program were important considerations.

“I definitely think that experience helped me grow as a player more,” Manganiello said. “I think it does help me play and lead as a junior because I see freshmen come in and us putting a little pressure on them. I can see myself in them since I know what they’re going through, so it makes it easier for me to talk to them.”

On a similar note, there has been a lot of leading to do with last season’s significant roster turnover. Thus, being named a captain as a junior was rewarding and an opportunity that Manganiello wanted.

“I was definitely really excited to be named a captain as a junior,” he said. “I knew it would come with a lot of pressure that I had to take forth, and I like that. I was always told that pressure makes diamonds, so if you were to put me in that situation I think I’d excel more in that situation.”

From an on-field perspective, Shumate agrees that Manganiello’s responsibility has increased with his years. Now that he’s an upperclassman, all the eyes look in his direction.

Improving his shot has led to goals early in the season, but it’s an up-tempo style that makes him most effective with the Scots.

“I always tell guys to enjoy (being a freshman or sophomore) because there’s no pressure,” said Shumate, who returned to guide his alma mater in 2009. “As a junior or senior, the guys around you are really watching. Nico’s had to rein it in a little bit in terms of the type of shot that he’s taking.

“He does a great job pushing tempo and has some guys around him who enjoy playing fast as well.”

Lynn speller bound for big stage

Ashrita Gandhari, winner of the 32nd annual Daily Item Regional Spelling Bee, holds part of her prize, a massive Merriam-Webster dictionary.

By LEAH DEARBORN

LYNN — After 30 rounds of fierce competition, it all came down to one word on Friday night — ‘uvula.’

“Oh, so that’s what that is,” said first-place winner Ashrita Gandhari after hearing the word defined as a fleshy extension at the back of the soft palate that hangs above the throat.

A fourth-grader at Franklin Elementary School in North Andover, Gandhari was one of more than 50 participants from schools across the region who gathered at Lynn City Hall Auditorium for a chance to compete this May in the Scripps National Spelling Bee.

Gandhari, who wants to be an exobiologist when she grows up, placed second in last year’s bee and took only a short break before she launched into studying for tonight’s contest.

“I’m really excited,” she said as she clutched part of her prize, a massive Merriam-Webster dictionary.

Kennedy makes final push on school vote

Caroline Clark of Sacred Hearts School in Haverhill placed third and Sofia Valencia of Higgins Middle School in Peabody came in a close second.

Before the competition began, contestants in grades three through eight were offered a light dinner and some advice from previous winner, Mitchell Robson.

“Think before you spell, don’t panic,” said Robson, a Marblehead student who placed seventh in last year’s national bee.

Robson said his four years of competing in spelling bees not only improved his public speaking and language abilities, it also earned him a number of new friends from his time attending the national bee in Washington, D.C.

Although Robson was too old to compete in this year’s bee, his younger brother Will Robson carried on the tradition and placed fourth.

Some students were a little nervous before the event, like sixth-grader Robert Desmond of Pickering Middle School in Lynn.

“I do like to spell,” said Desmond, who was worried about getting tripped up on deceptively short words.

As the night went on, however, the rounds became shorter and the words longer, with sportsmanlike applause accompanying the exit of each eliminated speller.

In addition to her new dictionary, Gandhari will be flown down to Washington, D.C. later this year to take part in the national bee.

Joel Abramson of event sponsor Flagship Travel said over 11 million students participate in regional spelling bees every year.

Peabody mayor: Site cleanup to begin

By ADAM SWIFT

PEABODY Mayor Edward A. Bettencourt has been reassured by the MassDEP that steps are being taken to move forward with the cleanup of contaminated property at 143 Lynnfield St.

On Tuesday, the MassDEP halted an appeal by Kevin Hoag, the owner of the property, concerning hazardous waste found on the 12.58-acre site about one year ago.

Bettencourt stated in a letter sent to the City Council Thursday, that the action items for the cleanup set forth in an Administrative Consent Order (ACO) signed by MassDEP commissioner Martin Suuberg will move forward on a timeline that began March 7.

“We are regularly communicating with DEP soliciting updates,” Bettencourt stated in the letter. “We have been reassured as recently as (Thursday) afternoon that all action items that are completed will be communicated to us in real time. The DEP has reinforced to us that all orders are in full force and effect enforceable through contempt proceedings.”

An ACO was originally drafted in January, but was not signed by Suuberg until this week, Ward 1 Councilor Jon Turco said at the council meeting, meaning the clock on the timeframe outlined in that ACO did not start ticking until Tuesday.

The ACO requires the property owner to remove more than 99 oil tanks from inside the building and several dozen more from outside.

Peabody library brings world to Main Street

Turco, who lives near the property, said several debris piles at the site have remained uncovered and appear to be larger than when the ACO was first issued.

He said the windows of the old manufacturing building, where asbestos was previously found, were also uncovered despite the orders of MassDEP.

“Zero has been done,” said Turco earlier this week. “There’s been absolutely no progress.”

City administration was ordered by the state to withdraw from the case shortly after the initial investigation to avoid interference.      

According to the ACO, administrative penalties of $1,000 per day will accrue for every day a violation continues to occur.

“We have the action items that need to be completed,” said Turco. “I have been told that (the mayor) will handle the communication with the council, as we have discussed over the last several meetings, to update us on those action items.”

The items laid out within the ACO include the owners retaining a wetland scientist within 21 days to delineate all wetlands on the property and submitting a professional wetlands plan to the MassDEP within 60 days.

Also, the property owners must submit written documentation within 30 days describing all sources of soil and debris stockpiled on the property. A solid waste report of the property must be completed within 60 days.

North Shore well-represented in CCC

PHOTO BY BOB ROCHE
Kevin Bettencourt, a Peabody native, has coached the Gulls to their most succesful season in program history. Endicott will play against Middlebury in the Sweet 16 on Friday night. 

By HAROLD RIVERA

It’s been a strong basketball season for the Commonwealth Coast Conference. Thanks to coach Kevin Bettencourt and the Endicott men’s basketball team, the CCC’s run continues.

Bettencourt, a Peabody native, has directed the Gulls to their most successful season in program history. After defeating Neumann in the first round of the Division 3 NCAA tournament (96-93) last weekend, Endicott rolled past CCC foe Nichols (111-75), advancing to the Sweet 16.

“Our guys really played two complete games this past weekend,” Bettencourt, who served as an assistant at Bentley prior to taking over at Endicott in 2014, said. “It was great to see them play so unselfishly and connected on both ends of the floor.”

In the process, the Gulls defeated Lynn’s Marcos Echevarria of Nichols. Echevarria led Nichols past Endicott (67-64) in the CCC championship, but the Gulls struck back with the win in the second round of the NCAA tournament.  

“It’s tough because you’re rooting for Marcos to have a good game and play well,” Bettencourt said of matching up against a fellow local. “He’s a great player, but at the same time you want to go out there and get that win.”

Endicott features its own Lynn ties in senior Stephen Basden and assistant coach Luke Richards, who teaches at Classical. Richards and Bettencourt were teammates at Peabody High.

Over at Eastern Nazarene, also a conference rival of Endicott’s, another local coach is following in Bettencourt’s footsteps.

Nahant’s Jake Canty just wrapped up his first season as an assistant coach on the Lions staff. The season ended on a tough note for the Lions when they fell to Endicott (84-66) in the CCC semifinal. Despite the loss, Canty came away with a number of coaching lessons learned at ENC.

“ENC is an environment set up by the athletic director (Bradford Zarges) and widespread to all its coaches to be passionate about its teams,” Canty said. “My coaching partner, (head coach) Scott Polsgrove, comes from 20-plus years of successful coaching experience in Indiana and North Carolina. Scott taught me a lot about structure and order of a season.”

Canty, who split his high school basketball career between St. Mary’s and Tech, stepped into the coaching realm after his freshman year at Merrimack. In 2015 he joined the staff at Wheelock. After a season a Wheelock, Canty accepted a coaching role at ENC.

“The players gave themselves to us (coaches),” Canty said. “From trust in me from Zarges and Coach Polsgrove, all my players put a lot of trust in me that allows me to help them see their potential and develop their game.”

As coaches with local roots, Bettencourt and Canty have developed a connection over time. Canty began following Bettencourt’s playing career at Peabody, and later as a collegiate star at Bucknell.

“I saw Kevin play at Peabody when I was just getting into middle school,” Canty said. “He had games on the North Shore and many of us basketball fans remember, distinctly, some of his outstanding plays.”

Bettencourt’s career at Bucknell includes a memorable upset over Kansas in the 2005 NCAA Tournament. Although he admitted that it’s tough to compare the 2005 Bison to this season’s Gulls, the camaraderie within both groups remains unique.  

“It’s hard to draw comparisons but it’s great to see a group of guys come together to accomplish something special,” Bettencourt said. “Our team is really clicking right now and having fun with the opportunity that we’ve earned.”

Canty had his own stint at the Division 1 level as an intern at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga before returning home to join Wheelock. Although he’d like to direct his own program someday, he’s looking to take his time getting there.

“It would be nice to attain my own program,” Canty said. “I’d never count it out of considerations, but honestly can say it’s something I never think about daily. There are a few more coaches and programs I’d like to work under before pursuing a program of my own.”

For both Bettencourt and Canty, the future looks bright. ENC’s gearing up for next season and the commitment is already showing.  

“The day we lost to Endicott I had almost all my players approach me about getting time in the gym with them,” Canty said. “The next afternoon I had six underclassmen and two upperclassmen in the gym. It was a very gratifying feeling for me.”

Endicott moves forward to tonight’s Sweet 16 game at Middlebury.

“It has been a very special season and we’re excited for it to continue,” Bettencourt said. “Our guys have worked very hard and I’m happy for them that they will have an opportunity to compete in the Sweet 16. I think us advancing is a testament to our conference getting us prepared to compete against the best teams in the country.”

Along the way, both coaches have taken pride in their local roots.

“I’m the first person to argue the talent of the North Shore with anyone who wants to have that argument,” Canty said. “I’m a believer in what the North Shore has to offer. I think it’s the passion of the community. I think the North Shore loves its basketball. It’s our staple, our pride and our passion.”

RMV picks Route 1 site

DANVERS — A site on Route 1 South has been selected as the new location for a Registry of Motor Vehicles branch, according to a Facebook post from state Rep. Ted Speliotis (D-Danvers).

“Of the six proposed sites, I believe this is the best one,” Spelitois said in the Monday afternoon post.

Since summer 2016, the state had been looking for a replacement for the branch at the Liberty Tree Mall in Danvers. The state shuttered the location due to the extensive work needed to upgrade heating, cooling and ventilation systems.

State Rep. Thomas Walsh (D-Peabody) had made a push for one of two sites in his city; two were considered. A second site in Danvers, as well as one in Beverly and Wakefield, were considered as well.

Peabody needs to raise a roof

By LEAH DEARBORN

PEABODY — Peabody Veterans Memorial High School has plans to raise the roof this summer.  

Interim Superintendent Herbert W. Levine said the city had its application for a new roof approved by the Massachusetts School Building Authority (MSBA).

He said that while the final repair cost numbers haven’t been set in stone, a reimbursement of around 56 percent of total costs through the MSBA is typical.

“It’s just New England weather, wear and tear,” said Levine about the rationale for the replacement.

Facilities manager Timothy Healy said the last time the high school’s roof was replaced was about three decades ago.

He said the project will include a partial roof replacement of about 70,000 square-feet encompassing the field house, an academic section and the auditorium.

“We’re being proactive about it. It’s reached the end of its useful life, as they say,” said Healy.

The City of Peabody placed an advertisement for bids on the project in February, asking interested parties to contact the city purchasing agent.  

Healy said the plan is to do most of the work over the course of summer in order to prevent the repairs from disrupting students while they’re in school.

While the high school field house underwent a lighting replacement during February vacation, Healy said there are no other major school renovation projects in the works.

Peabody homicide indictments pending

SALEM — Wes Doughty, charged with the Feb. 18 murders of a Peabody couple, was arraigned in Salem District Court Thursday for allegedly carjacking a man while on the run from police.

Doughty, 39, of Danvers, pleaded not guilty to charges of armed carjacking, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon on a person 60 or older and kidnapping. Bail was set at $250,000 cash, but was simply a formality because he was held without bail after being arraigned on two counts of first-degree murder in Peabody District Court on Tuesday.

Doughty was ordered to return to Salem District Court on April 12 for a probable cause hearing, but is expected to be indicted by the Essex County Grand Jury on the carjacking and murder charges before then. Following the indictment, all of the charges against Doughty would instead be handled at Salem Superior Court, according to Carrie Kimball Monahan, spokeswoman for the Essex County District Attorney’s office.

Doughty is the second suspect in a double homicide at 19 Farm Ave. and was on the run for a week after the bodies of Mark Greenlaw, 37, and Jennifer O’Connor, 40, were found in the bungalow-style home. His alleged accomplice, Michael Hebb, 45, of Peabody, pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder charges on Feb. 21 and is being held without bail.

Authorities released the cause of death for both victims on Tuesday. Greenlaw was shot in the head and his girlfriend, O’Connor, was stabbed in her neck and torso.

While on the run, Doughty allegedly carjacked Kenneth Metz, a 64-year-old grandfather, outside a Middleton restaurant on the night of Feb. 22, before the victim was able to escape three hours later in Boston. Metz told reporters a day later outside his Middleton home that Doughty confessed to the double murder, saying he killed the couple because they had given heroin to his godfather.

Authorities have not released a motive for the murders.

Metz was in the parking lot of Hailey’s Restaurant & Pub in Middleton around 7 p.m. when Doughty allegedly forced his way into Metz’s car, ordered him into the passenger seat and drove off. The suspect used a pen knife and caused minor cuts and scrapes to Metz’s neck, according to court documents.

Carjack victim: Murder suspect confessed

Doughty drove around with Metz in the car for three hours, stopping to purchase alcohol and cigarettes along the way, and took an ATM card from Metz to withdraw $146. Doughty allegedly tied Metz’s wrists and leg with a seatbelt at each stop and left him locked in the car. Metz told police that the suspect consumed the alcohol and cigarettes throughout the duration of the car ride and would make statements about his alcohol dependence, saying that he would have enough to get through the night. The victim also told police Doughty stated he would have to steal another car the same way he stole Metz’s vehicle, according to court documents.

Metz was able to untie himself when Doughty went into Hollywood Liquors on Tremont Street in Boston, and run to a local pizza shop to call Boston Police, according to court documents.

Doughty was arrested last Friday in South Carolina after being questioned for panhandling. Investigators there learned he was wanted for a double homicide in Peabody and carjacking in Boston.  

John Apruzzese, of Salem, Doughty’s defense attorney, said after his client’s arraignment on Tuesday that only the “Commonwealth’s version of events” was known and expected more facts to come out. He was unavailable for comment on Thursday.

City health officials have since condemned the scene of the killings on Farm Avenue, and a vacate order was issued to the property owners. Authorities initially had difficulty determining the number of murder victims because they described the home as being in poor condition and messy. X-ray machinery was used to make that determination because the bodies were somewhat concealed.

The DA’s office clarified earlier this week that the bodies were not dismembered as previously reported elsewhere and on social media.
