Mulling a school move in Peabody

By ADAM SWIFT

PEABODY — The City Council is supporting the lease of downtown office space for school administration, but some councilors question how that move will affect long-term plans for the district.

Thursday night, the council voted 7-3 to enter into a lease for 6,000 square feet of office space at 27 Lowell St. With the lease, about 18 school administrators will move from their current offices at the otherwise unused Kiley Elementary School in West Peabody.

“This will benefit the city in a number of ways,” said Mayor Edward A. Bettencourt Jr. Having the office for the superintendent, assistant superintendent, finance director and other administrators downtown puts them closer to a greater number of students and families and should help spur local businesses, the mayor said.

The new offices will also provide a more professional setting.

“The conditions at the Kiley School are subpar,” said Bettencourt. “It is a substandard building that we have concerns about and not a professional space worthy of the talent working in the school administration offices.”

The office space at 27 Lowell St. is owned by Luciano Dinis of Peabody. The rent for the first year of the lease, according to the agreement, is $6,000 per month. That rate rises to $6,500 per month in July of 2018, and $7,000 per month in July of 2019.

The majority of the lease costs will be offset by energy saving costs at the Kiley School, Bettencourt said. The city currently spends about $90,000 per year on utilities at the Kiley, he said.

While a number of councilors supported moving the administrators out of a subpar building and closer to City Hall, there were questions about how the move would play into the potential future renovation of the Kiley School.

Ward 1 Councilor Jon Turco said the city sent a statement of interest to the Massachusetts School Building Authority (MSBA) for the renovation of the Kiley School. If the MSBA gives the okay, the state could reimburse up to 56 percent of the potential $15 million in renovations needed to bring the school back online as classroom space.

Using the Kiley School for some special education and early childhood education programs would free up space at other elementary schools in the district and help ease overcrowding, according to Bettencourt.

If the reimbursement is not approved by the MSBA, Turco said the district could be faced with larger redistricting issues.

“The issue I have is that we are moving the school administration out of the Kiley in hopes of getting the MSBA loan to renovate the Kiley and maybe move some kids out of the Brown and other schools,” said Turco. “If that doesn’t happen, I’m asking (Bettencourt) as the chairman of the School Committee and the mayor to look at redistricting and see what we can do to alleviate overcrowding in the schools.”

Council President Joel Saslaw suggested the council hold off voting on the lease for 60 days to see if the MSBA approves the Kiley proposal. The state agency is expected to make a decision on the statement of interest in July, according to Bettencourt.

Turco also questioned why the city was looking to lease the former Lowell Street law offices when the building was up for sale just over a year ago for about $550,000.

“You had said you were looking to relocate for several years,” said Turco. “The total lease amount over five years is approximately the same amount as the purchase price for the building. Why didn’t we just purchase this building so we would have something to show for it after five years?”

School administration and the mayor considered purchasing the building, but Bettencourt said there were several factors that played into making leasing more desirable. He said the cost of upgrades to the Lowell Street building would significantly add to the cost, and that he also did not consider the move a long-term solution to housing the school administration. Future renovations or additions to the high school could include space for district administration offices, the mayor said.

Ward 6 Councilor Barry Sinewitz voted against the lease, saying he would rather see the schools utilize existing space at the high school or another school rather than leasing new office space.

Saslaw and Councilor-at-Large Anne Manning-Martin also voted against the lease agreement.

Peabody lays off on initial job-cut fears

By ADAM SWIFT

PEABODY — It was a night of hard choices and lots of math for the School Committee this week as they made the final decisions on the 2017-18 school year budget.

A public hearing on the nearly $71.9 million school budget is scheduled for Tuesday, June 6 at 7:30 p.m.

At the most recent budget hearing Tuesday night, the committee added back several positions that had been cut from the budget initially presented by Interim Superintendent Herb Levine earlier this month. Those additions were the result of several cuts recommended by Levine, as well as an additional $108,000 added back into the budget by Mayor Edward A. Bettencourt Jr.

“This is one of the hardest times we have when we are weighing one position versus another,” said School Committee member Brandi Carpenter.

Earlier this month, Levine presented a budget of close to $70 million for Fiscal Year 2018. To meet that number, the superintendent proposed cutting about 15 teaching positions from the schools, nearly half of which would have come through retirement or vacancies.

First-graders salute Memorial Day heroes

But Bettencourt added an additional $1.5 million into the budget, and last week, the School Committee made use of those funds to bring back a handful of teaching positions, primarily at the elementary levels, including a third grade teacher at the Center School and physical education and health department heads at the elementary and secondary levels.

Committee members also added back about $50,000 in funds for supplies and textbooks that Levine had recommended cutting from the budget to help make up a potential shortfall.

“Many of our teachers are already spending so much out of their pockets every year for supplies,” said committee member Joseph Amico.

As School Committee member Jarrod Hochman made the majority of motions regarding the final trimming of the budget, he said they were all made with one goal in mind.

“We have the most value by having teachers in front of the students,” he said. “These are hard decisions, but they are worth it if we can put a teacher back in front of students at the Carroll or Center School.”

Walking the line on pot

The border war between Lynnfield and Peabody this week was over almost before it began but the tussle between two neighbors has wide implications for the medical and recreational marijuana siting decisions.

Peabody Mayor Edward Bettencourt is no fan of marijuana sales in Peabody and he made sure the city’s medical marijuana zone got stuck out on Route 1 North. The border war ignited over a parcel in the zone abutting South Lynnfield’s Green Street neighborhood.

The town’s Board of Selectmen fired off a letter to the mayor and Bettencourt — a savvy elected official who is fast on his feet — quickly labeled the offending parcel a “hardship” from Lynnfield’s viewpoint and yanked it out of the zone.

Medical marijuana advocates and the coalition that campaigned for recreational marijuana last year understood that successful cannabis sales and marketing depends on saturating local markets. Language barring cities and towns from banning marijuana is a key element of the legislative language included in the 2016 pot legalization ballot questions.

Local officials retain control under the legislative language to regulate marijuana. Some communities, including Peabody and Lynnfield, have made it clear they don’t want recreational marijuana within their borders but their resistance is going to have to withstand marketplace demands.

Peabody and Lynnfield clear the air

In other words, communities resistant to marijuana sales locally will find their position increasingly difficult to hold once recreational marijuana follows on the heels of medical marijuana and pot dealers set up shop in cities and towns.

But their inability to keep marijuana beyond city and town limits won’t prevent local officials from consigning pot zones to municipal borders. Highways skirting communities and industrial zones on the edges of communities are often havens for strip clubs and other businesses deemed undesirable by the local powers that be.

But Bettencourt can attest to the friction created when one community’s pot zone becomes a neighboring community’s hardship. Border wars like the one this week between Lynnfield and Peabody are going to spark and ignite and the flames might incinerate some political career and the goodwill shared by the feuding communities.

Of course, money changes everything and legal marijuana dealers may find the best way to avoid making enemies in one community — maybe two — is to talk dollars and cents with local leaders. Legal pot is here to stay in Massachusetts but the disputes rising from its presence loom on the horizon.

Peabody’s Maguire, Tramondozzi head to World Series

COURTESY PHOTOS FROM UMASS BOSTON ATHLETICS
Peabody natives Bobby Tramondozzi (left) and Joe Maguire (right) have made key contributions out of UMass Boston’s bullpen this season. 

By HAROLD RIVERA

When Peabody natives Joe Maguire and Bobby Tramondozzi entered their sophomore seasons this spring on the UMass Boston baseball team, they knew the Beacons had the talent to put together a good year.

What they didn’t know, however, was that they’d still be playing baseball as deep into the spring as Memorial Day weekend.

After sweeping through the NCAA New England Regional championship, the Beacons are heading to the Division 3 College World Series.

UMass Boston (37-10) kicks off its quest for a World Series championship Friday, when the 17th/19th ranked Beacons clash against North Central College (IL) in Appleton, Wisc. This marks UMass Boston’s second appearance in the World Series, the first for Maguire and Tramondozzi, who are both relief pitchers.

Tramondozzi, a right-hander, holds a 2.92 ERA with four wins and 39 strikeouts in 23 appearances. The sophomore has logged six saves over his 37 innings of work.

After emerging as a top-relief option last season, Tramondozzi worked on his location and mentality to improve for his sophomore run.

“Freshman year, I was more of a thrower,” Tramondozzi said. “I was trying to throw strikes and not thinking of spots and when or where to throw certain pitches. This year I’ve become more of a pitcher. I’m thinking more about my spots and where to attack batters.”

Tramondozzi added, “Coming out of the bullpen, I have the mindset that nobody can touch me. You have to have that bulldog mentality. I think my mentality has proven to be effective so far in my college career.”

Maguire, also a right-hander, has made 17 appearances this spring. In 30 2/3 innings of work, he has a 1.47 ERA with 18 strikeouts and two saves. Maguire made similar changes to his arsenal that have proven effective.

“I think the biggest difference this year from last year is me executing my secondary pitches,” Maguire said. “Last year I was struggling, allowing hits and walking batters. This year I’m using my secondary pitches and they’re allowing me to be more effective.”

Heading into the 2017 season, the goal was to bring home a Little East Conference Championship. Once their offense heated up towards the latter stretch of the season and into the New England Regionals, they realized that their LEC championship goal had the potential to expand.

“We didn’t think we’d be one of the final eight teams standing but it’s been a great year,” Tramondozzi said. “It’s great to see that this is where we are.”

Maguire, whose younger brother, Pat, currently pitches for the Tanners, added, “We knew the LEC Tournament would be a grind. We knew that would be the hardest tournament of the year. After winning that we had a lot of confidence heading into regionals and we were happy that we got the job done.”

The fact that the Beacons boast a strong nucleus of starting and relief pitchers has helped UMass Boston’s cause. In past years, the team hasn’t the luxury of relying on its pitching depth to lead the way.

“This year we have great pitching depth,” Tramondozzi said. “In past years, we haven’t had a full rotation of five starters. This year we have depth in our bullpen. In regionals, our offense started to click. We batted .432 in regionals and our pitching has been there for us the whole season.”

Making the season even more special for the Peabody natives is that they’ve been able to accomplish a number of feats this spring together. Maguire and Tramondozzi have been teammates since they were in middle school are currently roommates at UMass Boston.

“We’ve known each other since we were in the eighth grade,” Maguire said. “We’ve played on the same team from middle school all the way through college. Going to the World Series with Bobby, it’s going to be awesome because this is a once in a lifetime opportunity.”

Tramondozzi, who pitched for the Navigators last summer and will do so again after his return from Wisconsin, added that he’s appreciated the support he’s received from fans back home.

“People from home have been congratulating us and telling us that we’re doing really well this season,” Tramondozzi said. “Joe’s my roommate and for him to do well this season too is really special. It helps us both in the long run.”

Moving forward, Tramondozzi believes that if the Beacons can remain confident they’ll have a great chance to bring home a World Series championship.

“We just have to keep thinking that we’re the best team there,” Tramondozzi said. “We’ve been thinking that all season long. We believe we’re one of the best teams in New England and we just have to keep that mindset the rest of the way.”

 

Peabody and Lynnfield clear the air

By ADAM SWIFT

PEABODY — There will be no border battle over medical marijuana along Route 1.

Earlier this week, the Lynnfield Board of Selectmen sent a letter to Peabody Mayor Edward A. Bettencourt Jr. opposing a proposed medical marijuana zone along the highway that would include a parcel abutting the Green Street neighborhood in South Lynnfield.

But Wednesday morning, Bettencourt spoke to Lynnfield selectmen Chairman Christopher Barrett, telling him he would withdraw that parcel from the proposed zone at Thursday night’s joint hearing with the City Council and Planning Board.

“I had the pleasure to speak with Mayor Bettencourt about our concerns and applaud him for proposing an amendment to eliminate the parcels in the zoning change that would be directly accessed from Green Street,” said Barrett. “The mayor was responsive to the neighbors’ concerns and his efforts showed the people of Lynnfield why Peabody is so fortunate to have a mayor like him leading the city.”

Bettencourt said the proposed zone for the sale of medical marijuana along Route 1 North will include several parcels along the highway, but will not include the area that can be accessed through Green Street.

Lynn doubles down on excise-tax delinquents

“We agreed that it would be a hardship on that neighborhood,” said Bettencourt.

The hearing on the proposed medical marijuana zone is scheduled for Thursday at 7 in the Wiggin Auditorium at City Hall.

Allowing medical marijuana sales would reverse course for city officials, Bettencourt and several councilors said there were several reasons to make the change now. The mayor said the city could face legal action if it continues to prohibit the sale of medical marijuana. And at a recent council hearing on the subject, several councilors said they have seen the positive impact medical marijuana can make for those who need it.

While Peabody is on the cusp of allowing medical marijuana, city officials are backing a ballot initiative seeking the prohibition of recreational pot sales.

Both Peabody and Lynnfield officials have said they are doing their best to look out for the concerns of their residents.

“One of the main goals of the Board of Selectmen is to be a strong voice for all of the neighborhoods of Lynnfield,” said Barrett.

Up in arms over Peabody pot district

ITEM PHOTO BY OWEN O’ROURKE
A proposed medical marijuana zone that runs along four parcels on Route 1 North from Bertucci’s to Don’s Power Equipment and includes a large parcel of undeveloped land is being met with opposition from Lynnfield residents.

By ADAM SWIFT

LYNNFIELD — A Peabody plan that could bring medical marijuana sales to their doorsteps is upsetting some South Lynnfield residents.

The Peabody City Council and Planning Board are holding a joint hearing Thursday night on a proposed medical marijuana zone on a stretch of Route 1 North. The zone, proposed by Mayor Edward A. Bettencourt Jr., would be tucked away from residential neighborhoods in the city.

But Lynnfield residents on Green Street said they are afraid that what’s best for Peabody isn’t what’s best for them. Those residents have support from selectmen, who sent a letter to Bettencourt and the council opposing the proposed zoning change.

“That area can only be accessed through Green Street, a Lynnfield residential street,” said selectmen Chairman Christopher Barrett. “I’ve asked (Town Administrator) Jim Boudreau to draft a letter of strong opposition from my fellow selectmen to approve to bring to the (meeting) on Thursday night.”

Barrett said the residents of the Green Street neighborhood have dealt with a lot related to development on the Peabody stretch of Route 1, including a billboard that practically sits in their backyards.

“From the viewpoint of Peabody, it is the perfect place to put something if you don’t want it near your neighborhoods,” said Boudreau. “But it can only be accessed through a Lynnfield neighborhood. I don’t think they are fair to Lynnfield, they are asking our residents to bear a burden that they are trying to spare their residents.”

Green Street resident Danielle Berdahn said the zoning change would impact more than just her road.

A crisis in care

“This will affect other neighborhoods in the area, Munroe, and Fairview and Witham Street,” she said. “We have 31 residents who have signed a petition for this not to go forward with the Peabody City Council. We will also be going to the meeting on Thursday. I also don’t think Lynnfield taxpayers should have the burden for policing this area, which is inevitably what would happen if this goes forward.”

The letter to Peabody officials asks them to find a medical marijuana zone that does not adversely affect residential neighborhoods in their city or any abutting communities. Town Counsel Tom Mullen will also be working with Boudreau to look at any other potential steps Lynnfield could take if the zoning change moves forward.

State Rep. Brad Jones (R-North Reading), also sent a letter to Peabody leaders making Lynnfield’s opposition to the zoning change clear.

The proposed zone runs along four parcels on Route 1 North from Bertucci’s to Don’s Power Equipment and includes a large parcel of undeveloped land behind the businesses, according to Bettencourt.

Peabody Councilor-at-Large Anne Manning-Martin cast the lone council vote against supporting the medical marijuana zone in April.

“I do agree we need to have a zone,” Manning-Martin said in April. “My concern is that we seem to be rushing into it while there is a lot of information out there that seems to be unknown. I think we’re headed in the right direction, but we need more time to know what the laws are and where we are headed.”

Gruesome details emerge in double killing

By GAYLA CAWLEY

SALEM — It’s been more than three months since the double murder of an engaged couple at a Farm Avenue home in Peabody in February, but more gruesome details emerged during arraignments for the accused killer and his alleged accomplice on Monday.

Wes Doughty, 39, and Michael Hebb, 45, were arraigned separately in Salem Superior Court in connection with the murders of Mark Greenlaw, 37, and his fiancee, Jennifer O’Connor, 40, at 19 Farm Ave.

Doughty was arraigned on two counts of murder and one count each of rape, attempted arson, carjacking, kidnapping, and assault and battery with a dangerous weapon.

Doughty is accused of raping O’Connor, trying to set the house on fire, and accused of the armed carjacking of a 64-year-old grandfather, Kenneth Metz, in Middleton days later while on the run. He was captured in South Carolina, a week later.

Hebb, was arraigned on two counts of accessory after the fact and one count of attempted arson. Murder charges he was arraigned on Feb. 21 in Peabody District Court were dismissed after an Essex County grand jury handed up indictments earlier this month for both men.

Both men pleaded not guilty to their respective charges.

New details emerged during Hebb’s appearance.

Assistant District Attorney Kate MacDougall said Hebb was living at the house with his nominal uncle, David Moise Sr., who is physically disabled, his girlfriend and a number of other people.

MacDougall said the home, which has since been condemned, operated a crack cocaine dealing business, and Hebb was one of the principals involved in the drug’s distribution.

In the days leading up to the homicides, MacDougall said it appeared that Greenlaw had asked if he and O’Connor could come stay at the home. She said Greenlaw’s sister was being asked to leave the home or was leaving of her own volition. She said there was some suggestion that Greenlaw was moving into Hebb’s role in the crack cocaine business in that same time period.

Hebb and Doughty allegedly had multiple conversations about Greenlaw’s incursions into the home, and that Hebb had made unsubstantiated allegations that Greenlaw was abusing Moise in some way, MacDougall said. She said Moise was the main head of the house, and used to be the owner, but had sold it to a neighbor and was leasing it long-term.

MacDougall said the evidence shows that Hebb told Doughty Greenlaw and perhaps his sister had been abusing, possibly poisoning, possibly drugging Moise. She said there is no real evidence of any of that. She said the Commonwealth would allege that he was playing on Doughty’s deep loyalty and devotion for Moise, essentially revving him up.

Even based on his own statement, Hebb at a minimum acquiesced to Doughty’s plan to murder Greenlaw, MacDougall said. After his arrest, Hebb had given a lengthy recorded statement to authorities about his involvement in the murders, according to his defense attorney, Ray Buso.

Shortly after Greenlaw’s and O’Connor arrival at the house, sometime likely late Friday, Feb. 17, Doughty shot Greenlaw once in the face with a shotgun, MacDougall said. She said Hebb appeared to have been upstairs in the home at the time, but almost immediately came downstairs, and at that point, at a minimum, witnessed Doughty repeatedly stab, slit the throat and rape O’Connor.

Hebb then went upstairs and reported to a witness “that Doughty was an idiot” because he was leaving his DNA in O’Connor, MacDougall said.

McGee nurses senior health spending

MacDougall said it was by Hebb’s own admission that he then participated in cleaning up the house, as there was a great deal of blood in numerous areas, and ultimately wrapping up the two bodies.

She said the bodies were in bags and wrapped in cellophane. In addition, she said a carpet was taken out from the floor that was nailed down and split in two so that each of them could be wrapped in the carpet and further in cellophane.

MacDougall said the bodies were taken down to the basement, along with the mattress O’Connor was killed on, and were stacked there with a number of items, including several firearms and knives.

She said cans of kerosene and a propane torch were found in the vicinity of the bodies. MacDougall said it is the Commonwealth’s belief, based in part on statements by Hebb, that the men’s ultimate intention was to burn the bodies.

MacDougall said Hebb’s girlfriend was also in the home, and ultimately became concerned for her safety based on statements  made to her, and she believed she may have been next to be killed. She fled the night of Feb. 18, and dove into the car window of a Good Samaritan who drove her to the Danvers State Police barracks, MacDougall said.

On the way, Hebb’s girlfriend made calls to Greenlaw’s family members, who started showing up at the Peabody Police Department. A marked police cruiser was sent to 19 Farm Ave., which MacDougall said the two defendants became aware of, causing them to not complete their efforts to burn the bodies and run out the side door through a swamp area.

MacDougall said Hebb contacted a friend to pick them up, telling him their car had broken down on the side of the 95 on ramp in Peabody, where authorities believe Doughty stashed the murder weapons, which were ultimately recovered there. She said Hebb claimed in his statement that he did everything under duress to try to protect himself, his girlfriend and Moise, because he claims that essentially Doughty had a gun to him.

Buso said the vast majority of the Commonwealth’s statement was the subject of Hebb’s recorded statement. He said Hebb was unaware the first murder was going to take place, and did not observe it.

“In this recorded statement, he describes what the government now calls duress,” Buso said. “His belief was that if he did not cooperate with the other defendant, his uncle, for lack of a better word, and the girlfriend, were going to be killed … His version of the events indicated that he did what he needed to do to keep those two people from being killed also.”

Hebb was eventually taken into custody at his former girlfriend’s apartment in Peabody, after Doughty left, MacDougall said.

Doughty and Hebb will continue to be held without bail and return to court July 11 for a pretrial conference. Doughty’s attorney, John Apruzzese, did not argue for bail. Buso requested $10,000 cash bail for Hebb. MacDougall requested $150,000 bail.

Buso argued that before the murders, Hebb had a short record, with mostly motor vehicle violations. He said that Hebb could stay with his mother, who lives in Peabody.

Superior Court Judge Thomas Drechsler said he was inclined to set bail at $60,000 with conditions.

Should his family intend to post that $60,000 bail, Hebb would need to have a hearing before a judge, with his mother or whomever he would be staying with, to ensure they could properly oversee him during his release. He would be on GPS monitoring and under house arrest. For now, he’s being held until his next date, according to Carrie Kimball Monahan, spokeswoman for the Essex County District Attorney’s office.

Swampscott offense rolls to a Senior Night win

By KATIE MORRISON

SALEM — One of the keys to the success of the Swampscott girls lacrosse team this season has been its ability to adapt to the style its opponent plays, and make the necessary changes to its own game plan to compete.

It’s a strategy that’s paid dividends so far this season, and it did again on a rainy Monday evening at Bertram Field as the Big Blue (12-2) cruised to a 10-1 victory over Salem.

Not only was it a good start to a tough week, in which Swampscott will play four straight games, but it was a nice way to celebrate Senior Night, as the Big Blue honored seniors Clare Lang, Emma Sutherland, Isabelle Cilley, Taylor McBurney and captains Claire Powell, Ellie Wright and Maggie DiGrande.

Ellie Wright led the way offensively, scoring four goals, while Sutherland and Ocean Crawley-Sweeney each added a pair. Sisters Maggie and Grace DiGrande added a goal apiece.

For Salem, senior Camryn Connolly scored the Witches’ lone goal. But it was the play of goalkeeper Sydney Rocheville that was the highlight of the day for Salem, as the senior made several impressive saves, many of them from point-blank range.

Rocheville’s efforts kept the score close through the early part of the first half, as Swampscott had trouble penetrating the Salem defense and getting open shots.

“We found that we didn’t have much luck feeding cutters, so we wound up trying to drive and that ended up being the thing,” Swampscott coach Al Eaton said. “Every team is different, we just try to adapt to what they throw at us.”

Eight minutes into the first, Wright finally beat Rocheville to put the Big Blue on the board. The score opened the floodgates, in a sense, as Swampscott started to find a rhythm. Sutherland took advantage of a turnover in Swampscott’s defensive end and capitalized with a goal at 15:19. Less than two minutes later, Wright snuck a low shot past Rocheville from right in front of the net to make it 3-0, prompting Salem coach Jessica Upton to call a timeout.

But the stoppage in play didn’t knock the Big Blue out of their rhythm. Less than a minute later, Mary Miles found Maggie DiGrande in front and DiGrande whipped a back-handed shot past the goalie to make it 4-0.

The Witches managed to stop the bleeding for about 10 minutes before Crawley-Sweeney fired in a shot from the top of the circle to give Swampscott a 5-0 lead heading into halftime.

Salem kept the Big Blue off the board for the first 10 minutes of the second half, but Grace DiGrande connected with Sutherland at 15:53 to make it 6-0. Connolly put the Witches on the board three minutes later, but from there on out, it was all Swampscott.

After a lengthy Salem offensive possession, goalie Powell made a save and gave the Big Blue the ball back. Miles found Grace DiGrande in front and it was 7-1. Wright added a goal at 9:14 and again at 1:05, and Crawley-Sweeney barely beat the buzzer, scoring with about three seconds to play.

One of the things that has made Swampscott a tough team to beat in the Northeastern Conference has been the fact that everyone contributes offensively.

“Typically, almost every game, with a couple of exceptions, we’ve had at least six goal scorers,” Eaton said. “We try and do that because if we try to ride on one horse, the other team will just face-guard that player, and then you’re done. So we work hard at trying to work as a group.”

It took a few games for the offense to click, but coupled with a strong defense that’s been there since game one, it’s made the Big Blue a strong team.

“We have a good group of defenders, and they work well together. It’s been a big difference in our game,” Eaton said. “Our offense took some time to get some traction early in the season, but the defense was there to support them. Now it’s working on both sides right now, and at the end of the season, that’s exactly where you’d want to be.”

Swampscott is now gearing up for the postseason, but there’s still work to be done. The Big Blue had to cram four games in before Thursday, and will have a big test against Peabody this afternoon.

“It’s a big game, that will be a huge challenge for us and it will give us a good indication of the type of teams we’ll face in the tournament,” Eaton said. “That one’s been circled on our calendar.”

After that, they have Stoneham Wednesday and Revere Thursday.

Peabody wants school administration downtown

Mayor Edward A. Bettencourt Jr. awaits for approval on a five-year lease for new school administration.

By ADAM SWIFT

PEABODY — Come July, if Mayor Edward A. Bettencourt Jr. wants to check in with Interim Superintendent Herb Levine, all he’ll have to do is walk across the street.

The mayor is looking for City Council approval for a five-year lease for new school administration offices at 27 Lowell Street, opposite City Hall at 24 Lowell Street. Bettencourt, Levine, and school attorney Donald Conn will be at the council’s Thursday night meeting asking for official approval of the lease agreement.

The move of the school administration offices from the current location at the Kiley Brothers Memorial School to the new 6,000-square-foot space is part of a larger effort to bring the Kiley School back into play as educational space.

The estimated $10-$15 million renovation project would reopen Kiley to students as part of a redistricting effort to ease school overcrowding. The renovation project was one of four elementary school projects filed with the Massachusetts School Building Authority (MSBA) earlier this year.

If approved by the MSBA, the project would be eligible for up to 56 percent reimbursement from the state.

The Kiley School would be used for special education and early childhood classroom space, opening up additional space in the Brown Elementary School and other elementary schools downtown and in South Peabody facing overcrowding issues, according to the mayor.

The city should hear from the MSBA by the middle of the summer on potential approval of the projects. The other statements of interest filed with the MSBA ask for money for renovations at the Welch, Burke, and Center elementary schools.

Last year, the MSBA gave the go ahead for reimbursement for a new roof at the high school. That project is slated to get underway this summer.

The office space at 27 Lowell St. is owned by Luciano Dinis of Peabody. The rent for the first year of the lease, according to the agreement, would be $6,000 per month. That rate would rise to $6,500 per month in July of 2018, and $7,000 per month in July of 2019.

Peabody sweeps league track meet

By KATIE MORRISON

PEABODY — The Peabody boys and girls track teams continued their dominance in the Northeastern Conference, as they both won the NEC league meet Saturday on their home turf at Peabody High.

On the boys side, it wasn’t close, as the Tanners topped second-place finisher Somerville, 160-104. Salem finished third (31) and Classical fourth (30). The girls meet was a closer affair, with Peabody beating out Gloucester, 105-86. Beverly finished third (83) ahead of Saugus (42).

In the 100-meter dash, Peabody’s Amanda Andrews (12.74 seconds) barely topped Saugus’ Haley Dennis (12.8) in a photo-finish type of race. Andrews added another win to her resume in the 200, again barely sneaking by a Sachem; this time it was Kiley Ronan, who ran a 27.1. In the 800, Gloucester’s Carly Curcuru grabbed first (2:22.3), but it was a close battle for second between Peabody’s Sophia Anderle (2:26.0) and Winthrop’s Heidy Benson (2:26.3).

Anderle logged a win in the 400 hurdles (1:07.4), topping Salem’s Danielle Stotts (1:07.6) and English’s Elizabeth Rozon (1:09.2).

In the field events, Gloucester’s Sierra Rudolph was a triple-winner, clearing five feet, six inches to win the high jump. Beverly’s Tyler Orlandella, Peabody’s Alexa Flewelling and Saugus’ Gianna Filaretos all cleared 5-0. Rudolph also won the long jump (17-1 1/4), topping Marblehead’s Gabriella Marks (16-6 1/4) and English’s Hannah Trahant (16-4 3/4). Finally, Rudolph took first in the triple jump (35-7).

Beverly’s Gracie Sparkman (36-6) edged Swampscott’s Maisie Vasquez (35-5 1/4) in the shot put, and came in second to Peabody’s Nene Onwuogu (102-3) in the discus. Revere’s Samantha Myrtil (115-6) had a good showing in the javelin, topping Tanner Emily Baclear (105-5).

Other winners included Beverly’s India Ingemi in the 400 (58.78), Gloucester’s Eve Feuerhach in the mile (5:25.2), Gloucester’s Holly Fossa in the 2-miles (12:02.8) and Beverly’s Tyler Orlandella in the 100 hurdles (16.18).

In the relays, the Saugus team took the 4×100 race (50.92), Gloucester won the 4×400 (4:16.2) and Beverly won the 4×800 (10:31.8).

For the boys, Classical’s Gilley Kabamba won the mile (4:35.9), topping Peabody’s Claudio Rocha (4:36.0) by one-tenth of a second in one of the best races of the day.

Somerville’s Elijah Jeffreys (11.21) topped English’s Juan Avelino (11.51) in the 100. Shaq Joseph logged another win for Somerville in the 200 (22.91), topping Danvers’ Anthony Spignese (23.35), Classical’s Emmanuel Kalambayi (23.76) and English’s Prince Brown (24.25).

Peabody’s Marc Alperen won the 800 (2:02.1) and the Tanners took the took two spots in the 2-miles (Shane Braz, 10:01.9 and Joe Farhat, 10:27.4). Peabody’s Moisse Irizarry won the 110 hurdles (15.46) and the 400 hurdles (57.64). Irizarry (6-0) also finished second to Somerville’s Phillips Magre (6-2) in the high jump. Avelino finished fourth (5-10). Patrick Pang logged another Tanner win in the shot put (48-11 1/2). Peabody’s Connor Ramos (139-8) topped English’s Samuel Adewale (134-4) in the discus. Swampscott’s Alex Sheehan won the javelin (158-10).

Other winners included Somerville’s Magre in the 400 (49.91), Somerville in the 4×100 relay (44.56) and 4×400 relay (3:28.0), Peabody in the 4×800 relay (8:51.1).

Saturday in the park in Peabody

By ADAM SWIFT

PEABODY There’s nothing like a trip to the park to celebrate a beautiful spring day.

This Saturday, Peabody families can experience all Peabody parks have to offer as part of the National Park Trust’s seventh annual Kids to Parks Day. Mayor Edward A. Bettencourt Jr. recently declared May 20 as Kids to Parks Day in the city, and there is a full slate of activities planned in celebration.

“Peabody is committed to healthy living and our wonderful parks and recreation areas like the South Peabody Nature Trail and Brooksby Farm provide excellent spaces for outdoor play,” said Bettencourt. “I invite all Peabody resident to join me outdoors on May 20, for Kids to Parks Day.”

With sunshine and mild temperatures in the forecast, it should be a perfect day for the Kids Giant Yard Sale at St. James Park from 9 a.m. to noon, the Touch-a-Truck event at Brooksby Farm from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., the Parking Lot Picassos art project at Ross Park from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., or the family bike ride and safety event at the Danvers spur of the bike path from noon to 2 p.m.

Malden school faces state ACLU complaint

For those interested in golf, whether of the disc or the traditional ball variety, there will be several options during the afternoon. From 1-3 p.m., there will be a chance to show off your frisbee skills at the Scouting Woods Disc Golf Course at 100 Summit St., and from 2-4 p.m., there will be an intro to golf program at the Meadow at Peabody for kids ages 8-14.

The mayor said that like Peabody, other cities across the nation are committing to a simple motto: “Active kids are healthy kids” and encouraging their residents to use Kids to Parks Day as the first of many days spent outdoors.

While the focus on Saturday will be on families, parents in Peabody will have the chance to cut loose a little bit Friday night with the latest Pop Up Pub in Peabody Square from 6-9 p.m.

The Peabody Main Streets event on the courthouse plaza will feature craft beer, wine, food trucks, and music. Entry bracelets can be purchased the night of Pop Up Pub for $5.

AG: Company violated state wage laws

BOSTON — A Peabody construction company has been cited by the state Attorney General’s office for failing to pay the proper prevailing wage rate to employees for work performed on public projects, as well as other violations of state wage laws.

DANCO Management, Inc., of Peabody, and its owner, Daniel Tremblay, were issued four citations totaling $293,812 in restitution and penalties for failure to pay the prevailing wage, failure to make timely payment of wages, failure to submit true and accurate certified payroll records, and failure to keep true and accurate payroll records, according to a release from Attorney General Maura Healey’s office.

“Our prevailing wage laws ensure a level playing field for contractors who perform work for public entities, including municipalities, schools, libraries and housing authorities,” stated Healey in the release. “When contractors skirt these laws, they not only cheat employees out of their wages, they undermine the competitive business environment of Massachusetts.”

Now’s your chance to tour Lynn’s waterfront

The attorney general’s Fair Labor Division began an investigation after receiving a complaint from an employee who claimed he was paid below the prevailing wage for work he performed for DANCO on a public works project. The investigation found that DANCO and Tremblay failed to pay 14 employees the proper prevailing wage rate for carpentry work performed over a 13-month period in four Massachusetts counties. Tremblay also deducted money from employees’ hourly prevailing wage rates for fringe benefits (i.e. health and welfare and pension contributions) that were not provided to the employees.

The attorney general’s Office issued citations against Ronan Jarvis, former owner of MC Starr Companies Inc., and R&A Drywall, LLC and owner Allan S. Vitale for similar violations.

Five Peabody educators leave quite a Legacy

By ADAM SWIFT

PEABODYDonna Costa, Elaine Marshall, June Kessel, Lorraine Benoit, and Sister Christine Gubisch will be honored with George Peabody Legacy Awards for their lasting impact on the education of students during the fifth annual ceremony on Thursday.

“Congratulations to the 2017 George Peabody Legacy Award Recipients,” said Peabody Mayor Edward Bettencourt. “This is a richly deserved honor for a group of outstanding people who have given so much of their time, energy and talent to the great cause of education.”

The city’s namesake, George Peabody, was a successful, self-educated entrepreneur who became the world’s first international philanthropist.

His wish to promote a spirit of harmony and goodwill in society lives on today in the Peabody Education Foundation’s annual awards.

The Peabody Education Foundation is an organization of community members, business leaders, and educators seeking to enhance the quality of public education in the city.

The five winners were selected from among dozens of nominations made by the public and met the criteria of having a lasting impact on education, effecting change for the good of the people over a significant amount of time, being an active member in the Peabody community and a tireless advocate for local students, and living or working in the city.

“These are all great people, and these are all people, who for the last five years, have been recommended and nominated,” said David Gravel, city councilor and Chairman of the Peabody Education Foundation. “We are looking forward to having a great event.”

Bettencourt also praised the role the Peabody Education Foundation has played in supporting the city’s schools.

“The foundation offers excellent programs as well as access to advanced technology which helps our students prepare for the next step in their education and their careers,” the mayor said.

Costa has worked for the city for more than 40 years and is currently a business teacher; Marshall was a psychology teacher at Peabody High School from 1974-2008; Kessel was a special education paraprofessional at the high school and noted volunteer; Benoit was in the school system from 1968-2003 and helped pave the way for women’s sports at the high school; and Gubisch headed the elementary and early childhood programs at the Carmelite for 35 years.

Tickets for the ceremony at the Wiggin Auditorium at City Hall are $35 and can be purchased on the Peabody Education Foundation’s website. The event starts at 6 p.m. and includes a light meal and a cash bar.

Peabody can’t hold on against Braintree

By STEVE KRAUSE

PEABODY — Peabody baseball coach Mark Bettencourt schedules teams such as Braintree to take a good measure of where the Tanners are in the grand scheme of things.

And that is why he could be both upset over the way the Tanners lost an early lead en route to a 10-5 loss to the Wamps Saturday at the Bezemes Diamond while at the same time happy the team played the two-time state champions.

“This is why we play teams like Braintree, and St. John’s Prep, and BC High, and Malden Catholic,” said Bettencourt. “We want to see where we stack up. These are the top teams around, and you want to see how you can compete with them.”

Peabody has now played both Super 8 state finalists this season, and split. The Tanners beat St. John’s Prep in the first game of the season and fell to Braintree Saturday. They will have another Catholic Conference team Friday (Malden Catholic).

“We’re 12-3 with a tough week of games coming up,” said Bettencourt. “This is where you want to be.”

Saturday’s game got off to a promising start as the Tanners took a 5-0 lead after two innings, peppering Braintree starter John Tellier. Chris Gillen knocked in both runs in the first inning with a base hit. And in the second inning, Anthony Iannuzzi singled home a run and Jake Gustin’s base hit scored two more.

That’s when Braintree coach Bill O’Connell decided to change pitchers, and Kyle Gray’s herky-jerky offerings held Peabody at bay for the rest of the game.

Over the course of the game, Peabody did not help itself in several areas. The Tanners had two runners thrown out on the bases, and made three errors — all of which led to runs for the Wamps (11-4).

There were also some other mistakes that couldn’t be scored as errors but were costly just the same. In the top of the sixth, Braintree scored two runs to tie the game at 5-5, and much of that was because the Tanners couldn’t complete a double play that seemed tailor-made.

And in the seventh, when Braintree scored five runs to put the game away, three of those runs were the result of outfield errors.

And after Braintree had tied the game, Peabody got the leadoff hitter on base in the bottom of the sixth only to have him thrown out on the bases when the Tanners couldn’t get the sacrifice bunt down.

“You can’t do that against a team like Braintree,” said Bettencourt. “You can’t get them four-five outs in an inning, and make mistakes like that, and expect to get away with it.

“You might be able to get away with it with some teams, but not a team like Braintree. But like I said, that’s why you play those teams. You have to finish the double play. You have to catch the ball in the outfield. This is a different game than we’re used to playing.”

Jake Zeuli got the start for the Tanners and breezed through the first two innings. And even when Braintree scored a run in the third to make it 5-1, on a single by Kevin O’Brien, Zeuli still looked strong.

After getting out of the fourth unscathed, Zeuli looked to be starting to tire in the fifth, as Braintree scored two runs on a nice on Brennan Quigley’s base hit.

In the sixth, Zeuli, working carefully, almost escaped without giving up a run. However, Braintree leadoff hitter Alex Kennedy, in what Red Sox broadcaster Jerry Remy would call “a nice piece of hitting” took a pitch the other way and placed it just inside the third-base line, scoring two runs to tie the game.

“My hat is off to him for that,” said Bettencourt. “My hat is off to the entire team. That is a very good team we played today.”

In the top of the seventh, Braintree sent 11 batters to the plate, and the Wamps scored on hits, errors and walks in the inning.

Peabody is back in action today at Beverly.

Contaminated factory site up for sale

Waste and wetlands violations were found at 143 Lynnfield St. during an investigation by the city and state.

By ADAM SWIFT

PEABODY — Just when city officials were starting to breathe a sigh of relief over cleanup efforts at the former L. Fine Factory property on Lynnfield Street, new questions are being raised about the possible sale of the 12.58-acre property.

Earlier this week, the property was advertised with a $3.1-million asking price by Engel and Volkers, a high-end real estate company out of Boston. The property is currently owned by Kevin Hoag/143 Lynnfield St. LLC, which bought the property for $600,000 in 2013.

But Ward 1 City Councilor Jon Turco is asking for a legal opinion as to whether the real estate company can advertise the potential for up to 120 multi-family units on the property.

“The problem that you have with this is that the advertisement states that they are going to develop 120 multi-family homes,” said Turco. “I’d like to refer that ad to the city solicitor and have a ruling on whether the city can prevent that from being advertised because this is actually an IL (light industry) zone and housing is not allowed.”

Friends who walk together, talk together

Turco said he doesn’t understand how the realtor can advertise the parcel falsely and said he wants the city solicitor to rule whether the ad is legal or not.

“The site consists of (three) parcels totaling 12 acres with a 96,000 (square foot) former mill building located on site that is ideal for a multi-family conversion into brick and beam style apartments, one of the most sought after types of product by today’s renters,” the real estate ad states.

Rodney Scott, the Engel and Volkers agent listed on the real estate ad, could not be reached for comment.

The contaminated property has caused consternation for city officials for years. In March, a state-ordered cleanup of debris piles and oil tanks got underway. An Administrative Consent Order (ACO) issued by the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection required the owner to remove more than 99 oil tanks from inside the building and several dozen more from outside the building within 90 days.

As cleanup of the site progresses, the property owners will have to continue to meet certain benchmarks throughout the year. Turco said that if the property is sold, the new owners would have to continue or complete any necessary cleanup efforts, but that a sale could delay the efforts to decontaminate the property in a timely manner.

NSMC, nonprofit join to help overdose victims

LYNN A local nonprofit is teaming with North Shore Medical Center to provide recovery coaches for every person treated for an overdose in Union Hospital’s emergency room.

Bridgewell, a Peabody-based nonprofit with extensive experience in providing treatment and housing for people recovering from substance use disorders, now offers 24/7 emergency response services by trained recovery coaches. All recovery coaches have personally overcome their own addictions and can relate firsthand to those struggling after an overdose, according to a press release from North Shore Medical Center. NSMC, which operates emergency rooms in Salem and Lynn, is the largest medical provider on the North Shore.

“We know from our experience that individuals with substance use disorders respond to recovery coaches who understand their experience and can provide unconditional support and guidance,” said Mark Kennard, director of community services at Bridgewell.

As a society, Kennard said we can no longer enable overdose victims to simply walk out of the emergency room without any support.

“We feel fortunate to partner with Bridgewell in this challenging work, and believe that the experience and dedication of the coaches will enhance the lives of our patients in ways that complement the expertise and efforts of our Emergency Department staff,” said Jane Clarke, R.N. and executive director of emergency services at NSMC.

Work continues for Market Basket access

The recovery coach program at NSMC began in late March and has already assisted more than 20 people and their family members, including some who entered recovery programs as a direct result of this intervention in the emergency room. According to police records, a total of 439 opioid-related overdoses occurred in Lynn last year, an increase from 349 in 2015.

As part of this program, Bridgewell has hired six recovery coaches who are available to NSMC Union Hospital staff to call as soon as an overdose case appears at the hospital.

Once contacted by NSMC, the coaches come to the hospital right away to establish a relationship with the overdose patient and begin discussions about options for treatment. All recovery coaches have completed a newly implemented state certification and training process.

While initially available only in Lynn, the hope is to expand the recovery coach program to Salem Hospital later this year.

Students get a taste of the Real World

PEABODY — Students from the Peabody Community High School are getting a taste of the real world this week.

Nearly two dozen students from the school met with Mayor Edward A. Bettencourt Jr. in his corner officer at City Hall Thursday morning to hear about the challenges and successes of running the city.

“I’ve been mayor now for about five years; it’s a wonderful job but it can be very difficult,” said Bettencourt. “I know things haven’t always been easy for you, you’ve had some challenges. I’m very happy to talk to you about what we do in the city and my responsibilities and what I do on a daily basis.”

The Peabody Community High School educates students with social emotional disabilities in a public day school, and each year, the school holds a Real World Week, according to Craig Macarelli, the program administrator. There are currently 27 students in grades 9 through 12 in the program.

“We set up a week where we talk about life transitions into adulthood, from financial literacy to even car maintenance,” said Macarelli. This week, the students even went into Boston to learn about local history.

LaPierre launching re-election campaign

At City Hall, the focus was on civic responsibility and what it takes to effectively run a municipality with a $170 million budget and 1,400 employees.

“My job as the mayor is to try to move the city forward to make it a better place for everyone, and there are a lot of different parts to that,” said Bettencourt. “My job as the mayor is to be the CEO. I oversee all the different departments, and of course, the biggest one is the schools.”

Bettencourt talked about several current projects in the city, including the revitalization of the downtown and the dredging of Crystal Lake. He also answered several questions from students and teachers about those projects, as well as why he wanted to run for mayor.

“With this job, you can really make things happen, and not all jobs can give you that good feeling that you are contributing,” Bettencourt said.

Community high school student Bryanna Burgess said she looks forward to the Real World Week every year, adding that this year was the first time they have visited the mayor. She said she especially appreciates the opportunity to get out of the classroom and into the community.

 

20-year-old accused of robbing man, 70

By GAYLA CAWLEY

PEABODY Davary Xavier Jones, 20, was arrested for allegedly knocking down and robbing a 70-year-old Peabody man.

At approximately 11 a.m. Thursday, the victim was walking down Main Street toward Central Street when he was knocked down and robbed of his wallet. He had his pants ripped and was bleeding from a laceration to his knee, Peabody Police Capt. Dennis Bonaiuto said.

The victim was able to provide a description of the suspect, who had fled on foot, which was broadcast to other officers. Officers Andrew Long and Javier Sanchez saw Jones, conducted a brief investigation and grabbed him on Walnut Street shortly after the robbery, Bonaiuto said.

Jones, of Peabody, was charged with unarmed robbery and assault and battery on a person over 60/disabled with injury. He also had a probation warrant out for his arrest for threats, Bonaiuto said.

“It was a serious incident that was brought to a swift conclusion and apprehension of a suspect,” Bonaiuto said.

The department’s new K9, Caine, a German shepherd handled by Officer Corey Salvo, was utilized, and they were able to find the wallet. The pair had just completed several months of training, Bonaiuto said.

Sgt. David Bonfanti, Detectives Stephanie Lane and DJ Murphy and Officer Michael Donovan also assisted with the incident.

Locals boost Prep rugby past Belmont

DANVERS– After wins in its previous two matches, the St. John’s Prep rugby team rolled into Thursday afternoon’s game against Belmont on a high note. Thanks to a trio of locals, the good times continue for the Eagles.

Omar Guerrero of Marblehead, Harrison Hosker of Nahant and Brian Barrett of Peabody each scored tries for the Eagles en route to a 19-10 win over Belmont at Brother Linus Athletic Complex. The win puts the Prep at 3-1 on the season.

“We knew Belmont is a really well-coached team,” Prep coach Seelan Manickam said. “They usually rely on their speed and they did again today. They have a tough defense and they’re a tough opponent, all the time, for us.”

The Marauders took a 5-0 lead six minutes into the game when Joe Viale, Belmont’s scrum-half, scored the game’s first try. The ensuing kick was no good, but Belmont’s early lead gave the Marauders the start they were looking for.

“I’m proud of the way our guys played and carried themselves,” Belmont coach Greg Bruce said. “We knew that coming up here, it’s always an aggressive and competitive game. We were prepared for that, we just didn’t capitalize on some opportunities.”

That was the only lead Belmont would see in Thursday’s match, as St. John’s took over on Guerrero’s try in the 25th minute. Connor Robinson’s kick was good, giving the Eagles a 7-5 advantage. The score stayed at 7-5 at the halfway mark.

“We’re a team that sometimes, fresh out of the gate, especially offensively, we’re not attacking as strongly as I’d like us to,” Manickam said. “That’s something we’ll work on. Once our guys get going, we have a certain system we play. Once we get settled into our system, that’s when we take over.”

Six minutes into the second half, the Eagles found some breathing room. Hosker’s try, followed by Robinson’s kick, made it a nine-point Prep lead at 14-5.

Belmont stepped up and held it’s ground defensively, but the Eagles bumped their lead to 19-5 when Barrett, the Prep’s eight-man, took a quick tap-and-go and turned it into a try in the 70th minute of play.

“Brian’s one of the best players in the state right now,” Manickam said. “That was a good heads up play by him. He was very much aware of the situation and where the try-line was. That’s what you look for from your captains and your seniors, he delivered.”

Things got interesting when Sam Harris found the try-zone for the Marauders in the 78th minute, but Belmont missed the ensuing kick and the Eagles staved off the late rally to hold on for the win, 19-10.

“Credit to St. John’s Prep, they were able to put us under a lot of pressure,” Bruce said. “We missed a lot of our set pieces, our lineouts and our scrums. We fell off a bunch of our tackles. Those were the things that hurt us today.”

Belmont falls to 3-2 after the loss, but Bruce and his team walked away feeling proud after a late effort made it a close game again.

“We were pretty disheartened after a physical game like that,” Bruce said. “The last 10 minutes, our substitutes came on and they were really able to bring a lot of energy into the game. If you’re going to lose, to finish like that, that’s the way you want to do it.”

After dropping the season-opener to BC High, the Eagles have won three in a row and are right where they want to be.

“We’ve put ourselves in the driver’s seat moving forward,” Manickam said. “Not taking the rest of our opponents lightly, we’ll be tested against Xaverian and Lincoln-Sudbury for sure.”

The Eagles have already secured a playoff spot and are looking to earn the highest seed possible in their upcoming games. Manickam, in his third season at the helm of the Eagles, said the goal is to earn a home game in the team’s first playoff game.

The Prep’s strong season, Manickam noted, wouldn’t have been possible without the help of his coaching staff.

“My coaching staff is second to none,” Manickam said. “Part of this is the fact that we have coaches that really know what they’re doing. They bring a unique perspective to the boys on the team. Hats off to them. They bring knowledge to the players and really know how to connect to them.”

Riding the idea circuit

Judges once “rode the circuit” from courthouse to courthouse to dispense justice. The practice has largely gone the way of the horse-drawn plow, but Massachusetts legislators and state officials continue to see the merit of crisscrossing the state to hear constituents’ ideas.

That practice will bring legislators to Melrose on May 15 to hear residents’ concerns about climate change, global warming and clean energy. The Senate Committee on Global Warming and Climate Change’s mandate is to do more listening than talking. The comments the committee receives will give legislators an opportunity to work on enhancing Massachusetts’ status as a leader in energy efficiency.

The key question legislators will put before Melrose residents is, “Do you think the state legislature should monitor or regulate energy use and related issues to help keep Massachusetts healthy, sustainable and strong?”

State Sen. Thomas M. McGee and legislative colleagues hit the road this year and asked residents across the state to define their concerns about transportation and other topics. Commonwealth Conversations traveled to Lynn and Peabody in April.  Previous Commonwealth Conversation tours helped build legislative consensus on expanding the state’s earned income tax credit and on crafting a college savings plan.

Swampscott means business on licenses

Legislators are elected by constituents who expect results from them. But crafting and passing legislation on Beacon Hill also means striking a balance between interests stretching from the Berkshires to Southeastern Massachusetts to Cape Ann.

McGee has consistently advocated for a clear vision that equates transportation improvements across Massachusetts and the United States with long-term economic improvements. His vision received reinforcement Tuesday night when state transportation officials brought their own road show to Lynn to hear residents’ views about increased pedestrian and bicycle access across the city.

A first glance at local roads suggests motorized vehicles have won the battle for supremacy, leaving little or no room for bicyclists and pedestrians. But streets laid out a century, in some cases, two centuries ago cannot sustain increased vehicle traffic forever. Increasing safe opportunities to move on two feet and two wheels may shift the transportation balance to a variety of modes including increased public transportation.

The greatest benefit of putting legislators and state officials out on the road to hear what people have to say is not the new law or programs that are the product of listening tours. The real lasting benefit is the opportunity to have Massachusetts residents use legislators as a sounding board for how each and every person in the state can help improve its quality of life.

Doughty indicted on murder, rape charges

SPARTANBURG COUNTY SHERIFF’S OFFICE
Murder suspect Wes Doughty is pictured in a booking photograph.

By GAYLA CAWLEY

PEABODY An Essex County grand jury handed up indictments Tuesday in connection with the killing of a Peabody couple.

Mark Greenlaw, 37, died after he was shot in the head. His fiancee, Jennifer O’Connor, 40, was killed after she was stabbed in her neck and torso. The killings happened on or about Feb. 17 at 19 Farm Ave.

Wes Doughty, 39, was indicted for two counts of murder and one count each of rape, attempted arson, carjacking, kidnapping and assault and battery with a dangerous weapon.

In addition to the killings, Doughty is accused of raping O’Connor, taking steps to set the Farm Avenue house on fire, and with the armed carjacking of Kenneth Metz, 64, in Middleton days later while on the run.

Carjack victim: Murder suspect confessed

Metz told reporters that Doughty confessed to the double homicide during the carjacking, saying he killed the couple because they had given heroin to his godfather. Authorities have not released a motive.

Doughty was apprehended Feb. 24 in South Carolina after a week on the run. He was arrested after being questioned for panhandling. Investigators who approached Doughty learned he was wanted for a double homicide in Peabody and carjacking in Boston.

His co-defendant, Michael Hebb, 45, was indicted for two counts of accessory after the fact and one count of attempted arson. The murder charges he was arraigned on Feb. 21 in Peabody District Court will be dismissed.

Both men will be arraigned in Salem District Court at a later date.

NSCC job fair helps veterans

ITEM PHOTO BY OWEN O’ROURKE
U.S. Air Force veteran George Rivers is exploring his employment options.

By THOMAS GRILLO

LYNN — George Rivers got the bad news two weeks ago when Rent-A-Tool in Revere, his employer of nearly 19 years, closed.

The 54-year-old Danvers resident and U.S. Air Force veteran is worried about landing a new job.

“I’m thinking about becoming a tractor trailer driver,” he said. “But I’m exploring all my options.”

Rivers was one of dozens of vets who attended the Veterans & Community Job Fair at North Shore Community College (NSCC) Tuesday. More than 60 employers representing two dozen industries including General Electric Co., Raytheon, Boston Children’s Hospital, the Massachusetts Department of Transportation, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, as well as nonprofits, filled the school’s gym.

“We have something for everyone,” said Jermaine Williams, NSCC’s vice president of student affairs. “This truly is a collaborative effort.”

Francisco Urena, secretary of the state Department of Veterans’ Services, thanked all the employers for their commitment to empower and hire veterans.

“Don’t let this be the only day that we assist vets,” he said. “Let’s try to see what else we can do throughout the year to make a difference in the lives of veterans and their families.”

Swampscott is fishing for $50,000

The Bay State has 365,000 veterans. As of last month, 3.8 percent are unemployed, among the lowest level in years, according to Executive Office of Labor and Workforce Development.

John Gelfand, a U.S. Coast Guard vet, said he is studying at NSCC and is hoping to find an internship.  

Robert Ross, 68, a Vietnam-era veteran who grew up in Lynn, was among the 90 workers laid off from Analogic Corp. in Peabody in 2015 after 44 years.

“If I hadn’t been laid off I’d be still working,” he said.  

Marc Wilder, a recruiter from Comcast Corp., said the cable company plans to hire more than 1,000 workers in Greater Boston. Those jobs include technicians who do installation at homes and businesses, inside support, sales and management.  

“We are always looking for the best talent and that includes people with passion, dedication, reliability, hard work, motivation and a desire to grow,” he said. “No one better represents those qualities than active military and veterans.”

Jason Juliano, a recruiter at Boston Children’s Hospital, said have 600 jobs available in Boston and its satellite locations. Among the jobs include nursing, clinical and lab work.

“There’s a lot of growth due to internal mobility in the hospital.” he said. “Veterans are among the best hires.”

An evening full of laughter in Peabody

Accidentally on Purpose (AOP) Comedy Improv Troupe will improvise a laughter-filled evening at Northeast Arc’s ArcWorks Community Art Center, on Thursday, May 18 at 7 p.m. The event will launch the Patronicity crowd sourcing campaign for Peabody’s Black Box Theater.

“Patronicity is unique in that it not only provides the community with an opportunity to bring a new performance space to our city, it offers a 100 percent match for those grassroots gifts through Mass Development,” said Susan Ring Brown, Chief Development Officer, Northeast Arc.      

The Arc, in partnership with The Friends of the Black Box, plans to raise $50,000 by the end of June in order to qualify for a $50,000 match from Mass Development.  It is an “all or nothing” process, so the goal must be met in order for the project to receive any funding through the Patronicity Campaign. That $100,000, added to the $200,000 already raised through grants from the Peabody Community Development Authority, local corporations, private grants and individual contributions will allow construction to take place over the summer.

AOP’s performance is an R-rated comedy evening for guests 21 and over will feature Ted Neary of Peabody along with other North Shore favorites. The unique AOP style is similar to the hit TV show Whose Line Is It Anyway? and is complete with audience interaction.  Come and be prepared to offer suggestions for the group, then sit back, watch the laughter and madness ensue as the troupe puts your suggestions to work in hilarious improvisational scenes. Audience members contribute ideas and suggestions to the troupe, and (only if they desire) can also join the comedians onstage to participate. The cast will remain after the performance for a “talk back session” with the audience.    

Bringing a good thing to Lynn

“We are thankful to Ted and the AOP troupe both for helping to raise much needed funds for the theater and for illustrating one of the many future uses for the space,” said Brown.  

Once built, the theater will be available for rent for performances including comedy, dance, film, music, poetry and more, along with special events. Guests at A Night at the Improv will have the opportunity to see drawings for the theater and to log-on to the campaign site at www.patronicity.com/peabody to make an additional pledge for the project.

ArcWorks Community Art Center is located at 22 Foster Street in Peabody. Doors open and the reception begins at 7 p.m. Adult beverages and light appetizers will be served. Program begins at 7:45 p.m. and ends at 10 p.m.  Tickets cost $25 and may be purchased at http://bit.ly/nightatimprov.

Northeast Arc’s  Black Box Theater Project, located in the ArcWorks Community Art Center at 22 Foster St. in Peabody, will benefit people with and without disabilities.  Plans are to renovate existing space that will provide employment opportunities for local actors, musicians, set builders, ticket sellers and concessions workers. The space will also provide educational and recreational opportunities for as many as 7,800 local youth and adults annually. The theater will become an anchor in the city’s downtown cultural district.

 

5 arrested for alleged assault, extortion

By GAYLA CAWLEY

LYNN Four men and a 17-year-old male juvenile were arrested after a woman told police she was assaulted with a handgun on Saturday.

Police responded to 124 Central Ave. at 5:45 p.m. for an unwanted guest. The woman had the suspects at her house, and they got into an argument over money. She was accused of owing them money, Lynn Police Lt. Michael Kmiec said.

The 17-year-old male juvenile and Heriberto Felix, 19, of Lynn, each allegedly brandished a handgun, and demanded money, Kmiec said. No money was taken.

Responding officers performed an area check and the five Felix; Steve Almonor, 24, of Peabody; Terrel Payne, 22, of Lynn; Shad Ventura, 20, of Lynn; and the 17-year-old juvenile were later arrested in the area of Buffum Street and Blake Street, Kmiec said.

Almonor also faces several drug charges. Ventura was also charged with unlawful possession of ammo without a firearm identification card.

Peabody must plant more money at Brooksby Farms

Mama and her baby lamb, residents of Brooksby Farm in Peabody.

By ADAM SWIFT

PEABODY — The city-run Brooksby Farm is more popular than ever, and with that popularity have come some increased operating costs.

The farm manager and the city’s recreation director are requesting a transfer of $45,000 from the farm’s revolving fund to cover additional overtime costs and part-time wages for the current fiscal year, which ends June 30. The City Council’s finance committee is slated to consider the request at its meeting on Thursday.

“Contributing factors include increased minimum wage and the upturn of customers, from school children and families to the elderly,” Mayor Edward A. Bettencourt Jr. stated in a letter to the council. “The farm has become even more popular and will generate over $1.5 million in revenue for FY 2017.”

The farm operates outside the city’s general budget via a revolving fund, with money coming in from Brooksby Farm profits covering the cost of its operation. According to the letter from Bettencourt, there is currently a balance of $481,885 in the Brooksby Farm revolving fund.

The popularity of the farm; which features animals, a store, and apple picking in the fall; has increased because of word of mouth, good reviews, and the ever-present role of social media.

“This popularity has caused an increased need in dedicated staff to provide more direction, safety and to assure that all patrons have an enjoyable experience while visiting the farm,” said Bettencourt.

In addition to the personnel costs, there’s also a request to use $94,200 from the revolving fund to buy a new John Deere tractor and loader. The existing equipment at Brooksby can no longer handle the workload without continuous breakdowns and costly repairs, according to Bettencourt.

Adding a new, state-of-the-art tractor to the fleet will let the farm dedicate one tractor to spraying the orchards.

The other tractors will be used to take care of plowing and harrowing, laying plastic and planting the gardens, and mowing and property maintenance.
