Revere

Getting Revere in the pipeline

It will be interesting to see how much effort Mayor Brian Arrigo and City Council members put this year into ending Revere’s water pipe breaks. It seems like a break has occurred every month since last December, forcing the city to shut off water service for varied time durations and inconvenience residents.

To the city’s credit, Public Works crews responded quickly to breaks, including a major one downtown in February, and pushed to get repairs completed. But the frequency of breaks and the nuisance involved for residents points to a significant problem requiring a well thought-out solution.

Arrigo knows the tools he needs to run an efficient city department. He claims his administration has been successful in reducing wasteful spending and has “rooted out systemic abuses,” including overtime that didn’t need to be paid and city spending unregulated by financial oversight.

He has taken aim at past city spending practices and said millions of dollars were spent on major projects without proper planning and budget calculations. The Arrigo administration used a state grant to contract with the University of Massachusetts to assemble what Arrigo called “a realistic list of long-deferred projects.”

By late May or early June, according to a statement released by the mayor’s office, a five-year capital plan for undertaking major investments aimed at improving the city will be unveiled.

The statement lists upgrading City Hall technology and street and sidewalk repairs as some of the items to be included in the plan. Water pipe repairs should be on the list, beginning with Suffolk Avenue and the section of Broadway where businesses and residents endured a major break Feb. 22.

O’Brien: Lender hurt homeowners

It is easy to say water pipe breaks are to be expected during cold weather months. But that explanation does not offer much in the way of assurance for local property tax and water and sewer ratepayers who have to go hours without service.

Revere faces several challenges in undertaking major water pipe repairs. Like most older cities, it has an aging pipe network. A major section of the city is hilly, providing additional expensive challenges to repair planners.

Replacing water pipes is not the type of municipal service initiative that captures the public imagination. The city’s water service system is out of sight and, by definition, out of mind until a break inconveniences residents.

Replacing pipes means tearing up streets, disrupting traffic and water service, and prioritizing pipe repairs over more eye-catching projects like fixing up schools or buying new public safety equipment.

Spruced-up parks put smiles on kids’ faces and shiny fire trucks are a great photo opportunity. Torn up streets and mud-covered pipes tend to make people gripe and grumble.

But Arrigo has already staked his claim to being a progressive mayor and he wants to build on it by fixing up Revere. It’s a worthy goal and a smart one for a mayor who wants to get reelected, and Arrigo will be wise to remember to include water pipe replacement on the to-do list.

Lynn’s search for a four-quarter effort continues

ITEM PHOTO BY SPENSER HASAK

By HAROLD RIVERA

WINTHROP — The Lynn Jets can make games interesting. What they struggle to do, however, is play four quarters of lacrosse at a high level.

That was the theme of Thursday’s 14-5 loss to Winthrop at Cellucci Field.

Lynn fell into a seven-goal deficit, 9-2, midway through the third period, but an early Jets goal in the fourth made it a 9-5 game. Winthrop responded with five unanswered goals to walk away with the win.

“We need to play four quarters of lacrosse,” Jets coach Peter Pappagianopoulos said. “We have the talent, we’re just not putting it all together. We lost the ground ball battle again, which is hurting us.”

Pappagianopoulos added, “A lot of our younger guys were getting playing time in the fourth quarter. Up until that, we were down five goals. We just can’t finish. We need to take that next step.”

Ryan Clark gave the Jets a 1-0 lead to start the game but Winthrop clawed back with a pair of goals in the first quarter. Both were scored by senior midfielder Dave Barry, who tallied four goals in the win.

“He’s our senior captain,” Winthrop coach Brian Donnelly said. “He’s been a real strong player for us since last year. He’s kind of our go-to guy, not only scoring the ball but looking for assists as well as being our leader.”

Matt Moorehouse took advantage of a holding penalty called against the Vikings to tie the game at 2-2 in the early goings of the second quarter. Lynn struggled to finish the quarter on a high note, allowing the Vikings to find the back of the net four times and falling into a 6-2 deficit at halftime.

“We came out really flat,” Donnelly said. “I don’t know if it’s because of April vacation, or maybe it was a little too early in the day for us to compete. I though in the second quarter we responded really well. It was a good team effort.”

The Vikings added three more goals to their lead, two of which were scored by sophomore attacker Pat Sennott, to make it a 9-2 advantage. That’s when Lynn came back into the game, behind a pair of goals scored by Jack Stafford and Mike Clougherty, to end the period down 9-4.

“The guys worked hard,” Pappagianopoulos said. “We just make some mistakes and give up all the work we just did.”

He added, “We have to keep shooting. The guys are working hard, the senior are working hard and being leaders on this team. We just need to take that next step.”

Quinn Brinkler fired a shot into the back of the net in the opening seconds of the final quarter, slimming Winthrop’s lead down to 9-5. With three goals in a row in the span of a few minutes Lynn looked to be back in the game, but again the Jets struggled to finish.

The Vikings sealed the deal with five goals throughout the fourth quarter to earn the 14-5 win.

Winthrop goalie Andrew DiMento, a sophomore, finished with eight saves. Sennott (four goals) and sophomore attacker Brian Chalmers (three goals) also had strong performances.

At 5-1, the Vikings are right where they want to be this season.  

“It’s been a strong start,” Donnelly said. “This year we have six returning seniors who have helped us. They’ve been with the program since the beginning. We have strong senior leadership.”

Up next, the Vikings visit Revere on Tuesday.

“That’s going to be a really good game,” Donnelly said. “Revere’s a tough opponent, so we’re excited to see what happens.”

Lynn hopes to bounce back on Monday when the Jets host Everett.

Revere taking aim at opioids

By BRIDGET TURCOTTE

REVERE The Substance Use Disorder Initiatives (SUDI) Office will visit Revere High School to talk to residents about the opioid abuse problem in the city.

The city opened the office last year at 437 Revere St. and, using grant-funding, hired staff to help address the community’s drug problem. It was designed to oversee coherence of the city’s substance use disorder efforts and to support those most affected by the issue through policy and system changes. Since its inception, it has worked to streamline pre-existing programs and peruse new funding opportunities to expand its efforts.

According to a statement from Mayor Brian M. Arrigo’s office, early reports show that both fatal and non-fatal overdoses decreased in Revere in 2016.

‘Tradition’ up for debate in Marblehead

SUDI, Arrigo and the Revere Public Schools PTO will host a forum at the school’s Learning Commons May 3 at 5 p.m., to discuss future initiatives and solicit feedback about the next steps in addressing the problem. They’ll also give an update about ongoing work. Local direct service providers and medical professionals who participate as part of the city’s SUD Leadership team will also be in attendance.

Experts in prevention, intervention, treatment, and recovery will be available to answer questions residents may have about services available to them and people they may know in need of help.

For more information, contact Julia Newhall at Revere’s SUDI office at 781-629-4158 or jnewhall@revere.org.

‘Just a beautiful lady’: 4 years after bombings

By STEVE FREKER

MEDFORD — It has been four years since the Boston Marathon bombings changed the city of Boston and the region forever; the reverberations of the day hit Medford hard with the death of Krystle Campbell.

The 29-year-old Medford High graduate and former University of Massachusetts-Boston student was one of three people killed during the initial attack April 15, 2013.

Medford has embraced her memory with an annual Medford High Mustang girls softball tournament coordinated by head coach Jack Dempsey.

The fourth tournament will be held this weekend at the Columbus School. Event proceeds, including “Medford Strong” T-shirts and raffles, will go toward the Krystle Campbell Scholarship Fund at Medford High.

“Krystle was a three-year member of the softball team when she was at Medford High and we thought it was fitting to honor her memory since her passing,” Dempsey said. “Our softball team looks forward to this tournament every (year) and the Medford community and the local businesses really get behind it. It’s a fantastic weekend for a great cause.”

This year will be the anniversary of the unveiling of the $1.2 million Krystle Campbell Peace Garden in Medford. Initiated by former Medford Mayor Michael J. McGlynn, the memorial on Riverside Avenue was funded by state and federal grants along with private donations.

Fourteen months in the making, the garden was unveiled in September 2016 with Medford Mayor Stephanie M. Burke, McGlynn, state Transportation Secretary Stephanie Pollack, and others in attendance.

Sears protester: They know what happened

William Campbell said his family was deeply moved by the tribute to his daughter. “She was a beautiful lady,” he said. “Just a beautiful lady. She would come to a place like this.”

The garden was designed to replicate the marathon course, with bronze plaques identifying many of the mile markers. A central seating area faces four fountains which represent the four fatalities, surrounding a fifth fountain for the more than 250 who were injured; a number of whom were seriously hurt and lost limbs. Plaques representing the lives of the four killed were installed as the four points on a compass.

An April 8 ceremony at the garden and luncheon at the adjacent Medford Senior Center included the presentation of $5,000 scholarships to two UMass Boston students: Leona Smith of Revere and Eden Blakeley of Dorchester. Both plan to pursue their education at Krystle Campbell’s alma mater.  

Seven runners that ran Monday’s marathon in Krystle Campbell’s honor gathered outside Medford City Hall, dressed in yellow, long-sleeved shirts and bright blue tank tops bearing her name.

A mile run through Medford passed by the Campbell family home. Burke, in remarks at the April 8 luncheon, said $680,000 of a $1 million goal had already been raised for the scholarship fund.

“We will continue to remember Krystle in her home city of Medford,” Burke said. “We will always honor her legacy.”

What’s next for Revere carnival after shooting?

By BRIDGET TURCOTTE

REVERE Following a shooting Sunday night in the parking lot of Showcase Cinema where the 30th annual Fiesta Shows Revere Carnival was being held, Mayor Brian M. Arrigo is questioning whether it’s a good idea to bring the festival back.

“The investigation into this is ongoing,” Arrigo said in a statement. “We are currently evaluating the situation and will determine whether an event like the carnival can take place in Revere moving forward. As always, the safety of our residents is my first priority.

“Thank you to the first responders from Revere and surrounding communities who rushed to the scene, and thank you to the guests at the carnival and those at the movie theater for their patience and cooperation during a hectic and confusing situation.”

Police responded to a report of shots fired at about 8:40 p.m. No victims have been reported but three vehicles were damaged, according to Police Lt. Amy O’Hara. There was a report that a suspect may have fled into the cinema, which was evacuated.

‘Just a beautiful lady’: 4 years after bombings

Since police have not determined whether the shooter was visiting the cinema or the carnival, City Councilors Anthony Zambuto and Arthur Guinasso said they weren’t comfortable commenting on what the shooting meant for the future of the carnival.

“I’m not certain if it’s attributed to the carnival or to Showcase Cinema,” said Guinasso. “There was obviously some incident of gun play and that’s completely unacceptable, no matter what. Once the police department makes a determination about the cause, we can pass judgement.”

E.J. Dean, vice president of operations of Dean & Flynn, Inc., also called Fiesta Shows, said he was deeply saddened by the incident.

“For generations, we have prided ourselves in creating a family-friendly environment and the safety of our guests is our top priority,” Dean said in a statement. “We maintain a large police and fire presence on site as part of our normal security procedures to ensure that our patrons are safe at all times.

“We are pleased that none of our guests or employees were injured in this incident, which took place outside the confines of our carnival event, but we are nonetheless providing any assistance we can to the Revere Police and Showcase Theaters regarding this matter. We feel bad for the good citizens and families of Revere that were enjoying their time at the carnival when this occurred.”

Do Lynn & Revere suffer from a grocery-gap?

ITEM PHOTO BY SPENSER HASAK
Construction continues on the new Market Basket on Western Avenue.

By THOMAS GRILLO

LYNN — Two North Shore communities made the Top 10 list of cities with the highest percentage of low-income residents lacking access to supermarkets, according to a new report.

Lynn and Revere joined Brockton, Chelsea, Chicopee, Everett, Lawrence, Lowell, Springfield and Taunton as cities with a problem that has nutrition ramifications.

The so-called grocery-gap is most acute in older Bay State cities and rural areas, according to the Food Trust, a Philadelphia-based national nonprofit. The study’s authors’ mission is to ensure everyone has access to affordable and nutritious food.

The data measured the percentage of residents living more than a mile from a grocery store. To meet the standard definition of a supermarket, researchers said the stores must have annual sales of $2 million or more.

What’s next for Revere carnival after shooting?

Lynn has two major supermarkets: Shaw’s on State Street and Stop & Shop on Washington Street. There’s also a Price Rite on the Lynnway.

But the study failed to include the new 84,000-square-foot Market Basket which is expected to open this summer. The $25 million store is nearing competition at the General Electric Factory of the Future site on Western Avenue.

The lack of grocery stores affects 2.8 million people in Massachusetts, including more than 700,000 children and about 523,000 senior citizens, the survey said.

Chaos at the carnival

Revere’s annual spring carnival is a well-intentioned effort that may have made its final appearance at the Showcase Cinema complex following Sunday’s gunshot incident.

Fortunately, no one was hurt or killed after shots were fired Easter evening, shattering glass in cars parked in the Showcase parking lot.

Social media descriptions of the shooting’s immediate aftermath described “mass hysteria erupting” as frightened carnival-goers fled to the street, children in tow, or cowered inside the cinema under orders from police who, according to news reports, were initially told the person responsible for the shooting hid inside a theater.

The Easter gunfire bears similarities to the 2015 incident at the carnival that resulted in three arrests. A Revere police lieutenant described how the 2015 incident escalated “almost to the point where the crowd got completely out of control.”

The 2015 disturbance and Sunday night’s gunfire drew police officers from Revere and surrounding communities who poured into the parking lot, some armed with assault weapons. Traffic backed up in Copeland Circle as police blocked off the exit to the cinema complex and carnival and moviegoers, their holiday evenings abruptly terminated, made their way on foot through the circle and down Squire Road.

Mayor Brian Arrigo interrupted his Patriots Day Monday to declare city officials are evaluating the carnival’s future inside Revere city limits. He praised the police response and the crowd’s overall calm demeanor, calling the chaos that followed the shooting “hectic and confusing.”

What’s next for Revere carnival after shooting?

Arrigo knows the nightmare his administration and his city could have faced if the shooting resulted in a stampeding crowd and fatalities. The image of panicked people pouring onto the streets with wailing children is enough to fill television screens for days and send cold chills down an elected official’s spine.

Sadly, the repeated problems plaguing the carnival are dooming a great cause. The carnival operated on the Showcase lot for three weeks without significant problems until its last night literally ended with a bang.

Carnival proceeds help support the McCarthy-Trifone Recreation Committee’s assistance to  seven local Revere youth organizations. Carnival producer Fiesta Shows, Showcase and the committee work together to help kids.

The shooting is a classic example of a bad incident by one person or a few ruining a good time for many people who just wanted to wrap up the Easter weekend with a movie or a little warm weather fun.

Arrigo will be acting as a prudent city leader if he decides the carnival cannot make a repeat performance in 2018 on the Showcase parking lot. Public safety may dictate that it be replaced by a smaller, more manageable event.

Another way to make the carnival safer is to make it a truly home-grown event with participation from a large number of Revere residents. Separating the carnival with adequate security measures from the Showcase Cinema complex and giving residents a role with police in keeping the carnival safe might go a long way to removing fear, chaos and confusion from the annual event.

The spring carnival is a fun tradition benefiting a great cause. But the carnival’s return to Revere next year will depend on more people taking responsibility to make it safer and more family oriented.

Coach: Lack of lacrosse experience hurts Pioneers

By KATIE MORRISON

LYNNFIELD — It’s safe to say the Lynnfield boys lacrosse team has some growing pains to get through. After going 12-4 last season and earning the No. 3 seed in Division 3 North, the Pioneers graduated 15 seniors, and bring back just three this season.

Having to replace the majority of the starting lineup is a tall task for any team. But Lynnfield has kept its head above water for the most part in the early part of the season. However, the Pioneers dropped to 3-2 on the year Friday afternoon, falling 13-5 to Cape Ann League foe North Reading at Lynnfield High.

Lynnfield coach Joe Papagni said there’s no substitute for experience, which is something his team sorely lacks.

“They’ve got to play, get varsity experience,” Papagni said. “They don’t have the lacrosse IQ. It just has to develop. They didn’t learn at the youth levels, and this is a different level playing varsity. It’s kids that want to compete and go on to play in college.

“We’re going through growing pains,” Papagni added. “I’m not used to it, but we have to stay patient, we don’t have any choice. It’s going to happen.”

Friday was not the day that it all came together for Lynnfield.

North Reading’s Sean Fagen (seven goals) scored early and often, and got the Hornets on the board 33 seconds into the contest, driving through the Lynnfield defense.

Lynnfield goalie Kingsley Corona, a senior, denied North Reading multiple times on the Hornets’ next few possessions, but Fagen struck again at 8:37 after a couple of Lynnfield turnovers.

Lynnfield finally got a sustained possession on offense after the second goal, but had trouble penetrating the North Reading defense. An over-and-back violation handed the ball back to the Hornets, and Fagen made it 3-0 after a quarter.

Finally, two minutes into the second quarter, Lynnfield broke the ice as Jack Razzaboni whipped a shot past the North Reading keeper. The Pioneers cut the lead to one less than two minutes later, as Razzaboni found Ryan Freitas around the 15-yard-line. Freitas put in it to make it 3-2.

North Reading kicked things into another gear after that, and rallied to take a 5-2 lead behind goals from Mike Sheridan and Kevin Murphy.

With 3:35 left in the half, Corona turned away a point-blank shot from Sheridan, but the rebound skipped away and the Hornets held onto the ball. That came back to bite Lynnfield, as Fagen scored his fourth of the day less than a minute later.

Lynnfield opened the scoring in the third, as Ryan Fraiser took advantage of North Reading playing a man down thanks to a penalty, and made it 6-3. Still down a man, North Reading’s Jack Schille widened the gap again, despite some strong play from Corona.

Gianluca Alfe found Fraiser from behind the net with 5:07 to play, and Fraiser scored his second to make it 7-4.

Things got away from Lynnfield after that, as North Reading reeled off six straight goals.

The Pioneers dealt with a few bad bounces as well, including a late shot from Razzaboni that hit the post, bounced almost to midfield, and was picked up by a Hornet.

“We just made too many mistakes to compete at the level we’re used to competing at,” Papagni said. “I have some guys who work like crazy, but we need to develop quicker, and it’s just not happening, not yet. It’s still early in the season. We’re going to keep working at it.”

The Pioneers haven’t had a bad start to the season. Lynnfield topped Revere, Bedford and Pope John to start the season 3-0. But Cape Ann League play has presented challenges.

“Back to the drawing board. We have three games next week, and I expect to win them all,” Papagni said, referencing the games against Cambridge R&L, St. Mary’s and Danvers next week. “We’re not changing any plans…we’ll be alright.”

Young Sachems team rolls past Northeast

ITEM PHOTO BY KATIE MORRISON
Freshman pitcher Kaitlyn Wood has been dominant on the mound for the Sachems this season. 

By KATIE MORRISON

SAUGUS — After losing eight seniors from last year’s roster, which made the state tournament for the first time in five years, the Saugus softball team came into the 2017 season with a lot of question marks.

And while there are still kinks to iron out, the Sachems have proved through the first three games of the season that they plan to be right back in the mix again this season.

Saugus rolled to a 9-1 win over Northeast Metro Tech on Thursday afternoon at Saugus High, improving to 2-1 on the season. The other win was a lopsided victory over Northeastern Conference newcomer Everett, and the only loss came on Wednesday against a strong Marblehead team, 3-1.

“If you had told me before the season that after the first week, we’d be 2-1, I’d be ecstatic,” Saugus coach Steve Almquist said. “We have a young team, today we started seven freshmen and sophomores. We have 12 kids on the roster, and everyone’s contributing. It’s a good group, they have good chemistry.”

The Sachems are very much on the young side and while that can often be a detriment, so far the underclassmen have been stepping up in a big way for Saugus. Thursday’s game was no different.

Freshman centerfielder Taylor Bogdanski got the Sachems on the board early, launching a two-run home run over the Northeast centerfielder’s head, bringing in Brittney Sudanowicz, who walked to start the home half of the first.

“We jumped on them right away,” said Almquist. “I’m so happy for (Taylor). It was her first varsity home run.”

A hit batter and a single from Kaitlyn Wood kept the rally going with one out, but the Sachems couldn’t push any more across in the inning.

A big fourth inning broke the game wide open. After Northeast got on the board with a run in the top of the inning, the Sachems scored six time to take an 8-1 lead.

Alex Almquist got the rally started with a single. Sadie DiCenso followed with a little blooper behind third, and DJ Monaco walked to load the bases. Hallie Kahn drove in a run on a groundout to short, and walks to Sudanowicz and Bogdanski resulted in another run. Emma Howard singled to center to make it 5-1, and RBIs from Caity Sheehan, Alex Almquist and DiCenso gave Saugus an 8-1 lead.

“Last game, we got runners on, but couldn’t get the timely hit,” Steve Almquist said. “Northeast today made it difficult for us, they played great defense, but we really needed one of those innings.”

Saugus added to its lead in the fifth as a couple of infield singles put runners on for Sheehan, who singled home Howard.

While the offense has looked solid for Saugus, the bigger story has been the pitching. After graduating Northeastern Conference All-Star Brooke Westmoreland and secondary pitcher Shannon Gayron after last season, the Sachems were in desperate need of pitching. Wood has stepped up in a big way.

A freshman, Wood tossed a complete game Thursday, striking out seven. Her only blemish was in the fourth, when an error and a triple led to an unearned run.

Wood has pitched 21 innings for Saugus this season, and has yet to allow an earned run. In Wednesday’s game against Marblehead, all three of the runs scored by the Magicians came as results of Saugus errors.

“I can’t ask for anything more from that kid,” Steve Almquist said of Wood. “It was great to get her some run support today. She’s stepped up.”

The Sachems will face a handful of tough NEC tests next week, taking on Beverly, Revere and Peabody.

Making beans lovable

COURTESY PHOTO
Pictured is pasta fazool. Find the recipe below.

By ROSALIE HARRINGTON

The jars of dried beans on their own shelf in my Noni’s pantry was a sight to behold. Noni would save the occasional jar that would come her way from store-bought foods — say mustard or mayonnaise, though it’s hard to imagine that she would have made those herself, too! The front of the shelves was decorated with a shiny colored paper that came on a roll, designed specifically for this purpose.  

She was never happier than when she was in the “Racket Store” in East Boston, nearly an all-day outing traveling via trolley and then bus from Revere. The store was filled with stacks of kitchenware she could just dream of owning. Noni saved the dishes that were given away at the movies, “the show.” They had a wheat pattern on white, and the movie lover that she was, she collected many soup bowls, plates, a large bowl for macaroni — the word that has been replaced by pasta in the current usage.  For 12 cents you got to see a newsreel, a short movie and then a regular feature — quite a bargain, especially when you account for the dish you were given to take home!

On Noni’s shelves, chickpeas, also called garbanzo beans, were labeled “ceci,” the Italian word, and my Italian grandmother used them in many of her dishes.

This reminds me of a special day when I hosted from New York a nationally syndicated radio show called “Delicious Encounters.” I interviewed Mario Batali at his Greenwich Village Restaurant, Lupa. My son and I – he lived on Bleecker Street in the Village — had been there together, a few years previously, and I loved it.

Mario met my husband Todd and me at the restaurant during the day, before it opened for dinner. He had his little toddler son in tow and had walked from his apartment nearby. He asked if I would like to make a quick and easy dish, a favorite of his; of course I was thrilled.  We went into the kitchen, and he grabbed a sauté pan, a few cloves of garlic and in a few seconds it was sweating in olive oil with a few red pepper flakes into which he added some fresh chopped rosemary. He grabbed a handful of chickpeas, calling them ceci, Mario gave them a quick rinse and dried them with a kitchen cloth, then they went into the pan, with a vigorous shake, not a one escaping. Then he “hit the pan” with a little chicken broth and threw in a few swirls of cooked pasta; a moment later it was on a platter, over which he grated some Pecorino Romano.  

Absorbing the wisdom of the great chefs

I often make this delicious dish and think of the warm, charming and oh-so talented Mario. I remember well those restaurant days when you could be so creative with all the food right there at your fingertips. It was like painting with food.

There were jars of white beans, labeled cannelloni, which was used in Pasta e fagioli, often called “pasta fazool” here, a favorite of mine. It is easy and fast to make, as long as you remember to soak the beans overnight (to eliminate the gas-generating enzyme) before cooking them the next day.   

My Mississippi grandmommy used black-eyed peas a lot in her cooking.  She cooked the beans in bacon and onion and then ladled a scoop of them over her golden corn sticks, which she had baked in a black iron pan with chopped veggies on top, like okra, tomatoes, red onion, bell peppers. It was the taste of the South personified. Black-eyed peas were not part of my Noni’s repertoire, but she had jars of “lenticchie,” or lentils. The gray were the only ones available then, but today I prefer the orange-colored ones, supposedly French.

There is no reason to make a small amount of lentils or beans of any kind. they can be refrigerated for several days and there are countless ways to enjoy them — in salads or in soup with pasta.

With the warmer weather seemingly on its way, a bean or lentil salad on a picnic goes with anything, especially sliced pork roast or grilled fish. Make some memories, enjoy some friends on a warm spring day over a bottle of wine and some simple “cucina pouvre,” the very rich and wonderful “cuisine of the poor,” that is so popular in pricey restaurants today.


PASTA FAZOOL

(Pasta e fagioli; pasta with beans)

Every Italian household has its version. It is the quickest and easiest dish to make with canned white kidney beans, not as delicious as when you soak the dried ones, but very good.

  • In a deep (about 5 inches) heavy bottom sauté pan, heat 3 tablespoons of olive oil. If you prefer a smoky flavor you can substitute three rashes of chopped bacon or pancetta.   
  • In the fat that is rendered, add 2 ribs of celery, including the leaves, 1 small onion, 2 cloves of garlic and 2 medium carrots, chopped.  Cook for 5 minutes, stirring the pot.  
  • Add a sprig of thyme and rosemary and 2 cups of chicken or beef broth.  Cover the pan and simmer until the carrots are tender.  
  • Add 1 1/2 cup of tomato sauce and 1 15-ounce can of rinsed white kidney beans (cannellini) and 2 cups of chicken broth. Simmer for 5  minutes to combine the flavors. (I use grape tomatoes, which I chop in the food processor, sautéed with a few cloves of garlic, salt and a bay leaf, a sprig each of thyme and rosemary; cook for 20 minutes.) It is rather thick, but very tasty and perfect to add to soups or on its own over pasta with some chopped basil sprinkled on top.)  
  • Boil 3 quarts of water in your pasta pot, add a little salt and cook ¾  pound of pasta until al dente. I love the Barilla mezzi rigatoni. The beans and veggies slide into the pasta. Perfect.
  • Do not put oil in your pasta pot to prevent sticking. Having enough water and stirring the pot will prevent this. Putting oil in the water will only stop the sauce from sticking to the pasta when you are eating it!  
  • Add the drained pasta to the pot and stir; add a little more hot broth if you prefer a more soupy dish.  

Sprinkle with Pecorino Romano.  Buon appetito.

Border Cafe faces cockroach complaint

By BRIDGET TURCOTTE

SAUGUS — Following an allegation that a Border Cafe customer took home more than just leftovers, all restaurants in town may be subjected to regular pest inspections.

William Heffernan, chairman of the Board of Health, and Director of Public Health David Greenbaum agreed Monday night that the panel should consider making routine pest inspections mandatory for all restaurants. Greenbaum said he’d like to see them completed on a monthly basis.

“Given the amount of establishments in town, I think we, as a board, will request pest inspections be completed more regularly than they are now,” said Heffernan.

The proposed change stems from an incident two weeks ago. Kristin Torres, a customer, posted on Facebook that she found a cockroach at the bottom of her leftovers from the Route 1 Mexican restaurant. The post included two photos of an insect at the bottom of a glass bowl of dip and quickly spread over the internet.

“He was all the way at the bottom,” Torres wrote. “I am sick to my stomach.”

“When I came home and opened up my leftovers after eating the cilantro dip with my pastelitos, this was on the bottom,” she wrote. “To think me and my husband go there religiously. I am extremely disappointed and disgusted.”

Torres said comments written on the Facebook page were deleted — when a review was posted, the whole page was taken down.

Greenbaum said the issue is under investigation. Torres called him Monday morning to file a complaint. On Monday, March 28, before answering calls from Bob Murphy, vice president of operations for Border Cafe, Greenbaum paid the shop an unscheduled visit to complete his own inspection.

“I went Monday morning at 10 a.m.,” Greenbaum said. “I wasn’t going to rely on their pest control’s inspection.”

While there, he found a dead insect beneath the three-bay sink that he described as looking like a cockroach.

“I did look at the area where they prepare this particular dish and there was no activity,” he said.

No live cockroaches have been found and the dead bugs aren’t enough evidence to determine the building is in violation. Should he have found live cockroaches, the restaurant would have been shut down, he said.

“I’m comfortable with them being open,” Greenbaum said.

Malden’s decision resonates in Peabody

This isn’t the first time the Mexican restaurant’s cleanliness has come into question. As recently as two to three months ago, inspectors noted German cockroach activity, Greenbaum said, though most reports have come back with little or no activity.

“I know last year the issue centered around a suspect foodborne illness complaint,” Greenbaum said.

Murphy said restaurant operators have taken great strides to improve operations over the past year to consistently deliver the highest standards.

“We understand that the board takes all public complaints concerning restaurant food safety and public health very seriously,” he said. “We want the board to understand that the company is committed to the highest standards of food safety as well as a quality dining experience for our valued guests.”

Murphy noted that the customer placed her own food in the take-out container and discovered the bug when she reopened it about five hours later. He said the administration immediately contacted its own pest control company to have them complete an inspection. The company, Ecologic Entomology IPM found no activity.

Lisa Berger of Berger Food Safety Consulting said she has worked with the Border Cafe for about a year, and members of her team have completed 19 inspections with no evidence of a pest problem.

“A lot of people make complaints whether they’re legit or not,” Berger said. “We’re pretty much at the mercy of someone having made this complaint.”

Murphy agreed to voluntarily have pest control inspections twice a week for the foreseeable future.

Revere’s Health Inspector also completed an inspection as a neutral third party and found no evidence of living roaches.

Focusing on violence

The stabbing death of a man on Chase Street on March 24 and a fatal shooting on Bowler Street last Monday represent a level of violence rarely seen in Lynn. Two violent deaths in one week is, thankfully, the exception to the rule and the murders traumatized neighborhoods and shocked residents.

Police officers can’t simultaneously patrol every street in the city or check every vehicle entering or leaving for a potential criminal. What they can do is work with other forces for good in society to plow over and reseed local breeding grounds for violence.

The Police Department’s gang unit has focused enforcement work leading to the imprisonment of violent individuals. After school programs and diversion efforts in schools help youth who are at risk of gang involvement. These programs mesh well with police efforts.

Lynn police have also worked with police in other communities, including Revere, to eliminate violence. Revere Mayor Brian Arrigo spoke to state legislators last week during “community safety day” about initiatives his city has undertaken to reduce crime.

Revere has used tax dollars to support the Police Activities League connecting at-risk youth through sports with positive role models.

Arrigo, during his State House visit, stressed the importance of programs reaching out to men ages 17 to 24 who are at risk of becoming gang involved. He endorsed the Safe and Successful Youth Initiative providing assistance to young men through job opportunity development and school and mental health support.

Youth outreach group Roca has come to Lynn with caseworkers committed to reaching out to young men who have troubled pasts and who have tried and failed through other programs to build crime-free lives.

Arrigo urged legislators to provide more tax dollars to pay for programs aiding police to prevent violence from taking hold in neighborhoods.

Any funding commitment at the state level must be matched at the community level as mayors in cities, including Lynn and Revere, craft budgets for the next year and prepare to submit them to councilors for review and action.

Mayor Judith Flanagan Kennedy has supported police initiatives aimed at gangs. She has seen the benefits of police officers working closely with residents and workers in programs such as Roca and Lynn Youth Street Outreach Advocacy to make progressive approaches to ending violence.

We urge her to weigh the continued importance of public safety funding as she grapples with cuts in city spending and crafts a municipal budget for the next year.

Sally A. Daigle, 87

Sally A. Daigle, beloved wife of the late Alban J. Daigle and proud mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, March 29, 2017 after a brief illness. She was 87 years old.

She was born in Revere to the late Francis and Sarah (Quinn) Mason. She lived there until junior high before moving to Lynn. She was a proud alumna of Lynn English High School, Class of 1948 and always enjoying seeing her former classmates at class reunions.

She married the love of her life, Al, on April 20, 1952, and soon found her calling as a mother. Her pride and joy became her five children, and later 12 grandchildren and four great-grandchildren. She loved being “Gram” and “Great Gram” and was the best around.

She was determined and fiercely independent, even getting her license at the age of 62.

While she didn’t enjoy being the center of attention she was always the center of her family. She was fun to be around with her quick wit, magnetic personality and funny sense of humor — always making those around her laugh. She loved watching her game shows Wheel of Fortune, Jeopardy and Family Feud and was a wiz at crossword puzzles.

But her favorite times were when she had all of her family surrounding her, no matter the occasion. She often would sit back to take it all in, just observing everyone together always smiling from ear to ear because “that” was all because of her. She particularly loved the holidays mostly because it often was the excuse that brought the family together. She always put together “goody-bags” with fun little toys and candy for each of the kids — and any friends they brought with them. Besides holidays, she enjoyed celebrating everyone’s birthdays. She started the tradition of calling and singing “Happy Birthday,” which everyone looked forward to because it always put a smile on their face.

She will be lovingly missed but forever remain in the hearts of the family she made.

She is survived by her children, Cynthia and Jack Webster of Peabody, Sally and Ken Velardi of Salem, Jay and Debbie Daigle of Salem, Denis and Allison Daigle of Mashpee and Terry and Wendy Daigle of Lynn; her grandchildren, Heather and John Pidgeon of Peabody, Craig Velardi of Salem and Sara Velardi of Boston, Jason, Jacqueline and Brad Daigle of Salem, Kelly and Troy Mailloux of Florida, Kimberly and Kathryn Daigle of Mashpee, Patrick Daigle of Peabody and Amy and Amanda Daigle of Lynn; last but not least her four great-grandchildren that she loved so much, Kyleigh and John “JJ” Pidgeon of Peabody and Hunter and Samantha Mailloux of Florida, and several nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her sister Carol Drolet and brother Robert Mason.

Service information: Family and friends are invited to attend her visitation on Sunday, April 2, 2017 from 2-6 p.m. at CUFFE-MCGINN Funeral Home, 157 Maple St., Lynn, MA 01904. Her funeral will begin on Monday, April 3, 2017 at 9 a.m. at the funeral home, with a Mass of Christian burial to be celebrated at 10 a.m. at St. Ann’s Church, 140 Lynn St. in Peabody. Burial will follow in Pine Grove Cemetery, 145 Boston St. in Lynn. Donations are requested to the American Diabetes Association, 2451 Crystal Drive, Suite 900, Arlington, VA 22202.

1997 April Fools’ blizzard anything but a joke

ITEM PHOTO BY OWEN O’ROURKE
Virginia and Donald Lucia are pictured 20 years after the April Fools’ Day blizzard of 1997.

By BRIDGET TURCOTTE

LYNN Only three to five inches of snow is expected this April Fools’ Day. But 20 years ago, the joke was on the residents of the Northeastern United States when Mother Nature dumped rain, sleet and more than 25 inches of snow on every town from Maine to Maryland.

Item file photo

Virginia and Donald Lucia tackle the blizzard in 1997.

“We couldn’t get out from our front or side door that day,” said Virginia Lucia, who the late Item photographer Walter Hoey captured shoveling snow from the top of her car two decades ago. “It was just so much snow.”

Virginia and her husband, Donald Lucia, have lived in their Fernwood Avenue home for 56 years. Donald, who worked for the Swampscott Public School system, said more than anything, he remembers the flooding that followed the snowfall.

“And, of course, these storms bring out a certain sense of camaraderie,” he said. “You see your neighbors and you help each other out.”

The record-setting spring blizzard prompted the deaths of three men in Massachusetts and Rhode Island; all suffered heart attacks while shoveling snow.

Prior to the storm, Boston had received 26.5 inches of snow for the season. People took warnings of a blizzard lightly because of the anticipated storm’s date. Plows had already been put away from the spring season. March 30, 1997, a sunny day with a high temperature of 63 degrees, didn’t help convince anyone otherwise.

But a cold front hit on March 31. From 7-11 p.m., an inch of snow fell each hour. From 11-3 a.m. on April 1, three inches piled up per hour. With 25.4 inches measured at Logan International Airport, the snowstorm was the fourth largest in Boston’s history. The biggest was the North American Blizzard of 2003, which totaled 27.5 inches, beating the Blizzard of ‘78 by .4 inches.

Don’t say yes: Saugus police warn of scam

About 1,000 Massachusetts drivers spent the night trapped in their vehicles, Logan Airport was shut down, and trees and large limbs fell, leaving many without electricity; 8,000 in Lynn alone.

City officials used the Broadway Fire Station as an emergency management command post, Breed Junior High as an evacuation center, and Greater Lynn Senior Services as a shelter.

A 4-year-old boy fell into Sluice Pond while playing with his older brother. His brother jumped into the frigid water after him, as did their father, who helped rescue them both. A Howard Street woman went into labor during the storm’s peak, a Boston Street man was injured by his snowblower, and a Saratoga Street man was taken to Massachusetts General Hospital to have two of his partially severed fingers reattached.

On April 2, 1997, then-Lynn Mayor Patrick J. McManus estimated the April Fools’ Day surprise cost the city $100,000 in plowing and sanding costs, on top of the $200,000 budgeted and mostly already spent during the winter.

Schools in Lynn, Peabody, Nahant, Lynnfield, Revere and Saugus were closed for the first time that year, according to a 1997 Item article. Marblehead and Swampscott had a two-hour delay.

NEC-GBL merger begins this spring

By STEVE KRAUSE

When the spring sports season gets into full swing next week, the new Northeastern Conference-Greater Boston League merger — approved last year — will officially be in effect.

The Northeastern Conference has absorbed the four remaining teams from the GBL (Everett, Malden, Medford and Somerville).

For the spring, teams in each sport will be placed in one of two divisions, called North and South. The breakdown for baseball and softball is: North: Peabody, Revere, English, Classical, Beverly, Marblehead, Everett and Medford; South: Danvers, Salem, Gloucester, Saugus, Swampscott, Winthrop, Somerville and Malden. All teams within the merged league will play each other once.

In boys and girls tennis, the breakdown is: North: Malden, Everett, Peabody, Danvers, English, Classical, Revere and Beverly; and South: Medford, Somerville, Salem, Swampscott, Marblehead, Gloucester, and Winthrop. All teams will play each other once.

In track, Beverly, Danvers, Everett, Gloucester, Malden, Marblehead, Peabody and Revere are in the North; and Classical, English, Medford, Salem, Saugus, Somerville, Swampscott and Winthrop are in the South.

The Lynn Jets boys lacrosse combine will be in the South division.

Revere wants a new high school

REVERE — Mayor Brian Arrigo has submitted a Statement of Interest to the Massachusetts School Building Authority (MSBA) for a new high school.

The submission was made on behalf of the Revere School Committee, which voted at a March 21 meeting to submit the letter, dated April 6.

“I will be working closely with the superintendent and the rest of the School Committee in the coming years to make sure we are able to take the award-winning work performed by educators at Revere High School and move it into a modern building that will meet the needs of our students for decades to come,” said Arrigo in a column on his website titled ‘Investing in Revere’s Future.’

A notice from Superintendent Dr. Dianne Kelly to the school committee cites an obsolete, structurally unsound and overcrowded building at 101 School St. as the reason why a replacement is needed.

Kelly said at the meeting that the MSBA did not invite Revere into its core program last year.

She said the MSBA indicated the city had a strong application, but limited funding prevented the process from moving forward. Kelly said they were encouraged to apply again this year.

Waiting for an April baby

A statement of interest is the first required step in the lengthy process of securing funding for a new school. It doesn’t guarantee the application’s acceptance.

If the city is cleared to move forward in the process, a feasibility study  identifying siting options and the completion of a comprehensive planning process will need to be conducted, said Arrigo’s column.

Setting an example in Revere

Revere’s revived Commission on Disabilities is proving there is plenty of work to be done in the city and across Massachusetts to address accessibility and inclusion for all residents.

The Commission’s March agenda included a discussion on programming and activities for youth with special needs, and continued conversation about pedestrian safety and accessibility around the city.

It’s worth stepping back for a minute and pondering the magnitude and significance of those two topics. In 21st century America, strong programs for youth and adults with disabilities should be in place and receive the money they need to expand.

The same benchmark should apply to safety and access in public locations for disabled residents. Federal requirements — in other words, the law of the land — strictly outline public access and safety mandates. But the street, sidewalk or public building that is accessible in one community to someone who is disabled may not be as accessible in another community.

Mayor Brian Arrigo and city officials have made the Commission on Disabilities a priority and matched that commitment with a promise to conduct a detailed survey assessing the needs of residents with disabilities.

The commission meets on the second Tuesday of each month at 6 p.m. in the City Council Chamber.

To its credit, Revere’s commission is not just a deliberative body talking about a limited agenda of ideas generated by its members. Its stated goal is inclusion and its agenda notices invite residents to add to the commission agenda and contact members with any ideas or suggestions.

Progressive thinking demonstrated by the commission can easily be matched with a regional and statewide approach to focusing on disability concerns. Arrigo’s forward-thinking approach to government makes Revere City Hall or an even larger location a perfect forum for bringing together disability advocates and residents for overarching discussions and planning.

Even a weekend-long disability forum could barely tackle priority disability reform topics. Uniform and fair compliance with federal and state laws; disability mobility and enforcement and conformance concerns.

Another major topic is ensuring disability commissions are in the mainstream of governance at the city and state levels.

Disability commissions sometimes get pegged as annoyances by public officials who don’t want the headache of spending money on enforcement and expensive compliance requirements.

“Yeah, we’ll get to it,” is an excuse commission members hear too often. Those excuses are disappearing in Revere where the disabled have a voice and priorities are getting the public airing they deserve.

FBI: No matter where you hide, we will find you

By BRIDGET TURCOTTE

REVERE A fugitive accused of stabbing his roommate with a steak knife several times in the back and hitting him in the head repeatedly with a hammer has been turned over to United States authorities, according to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Douglas Pereira Lemes, 26, was wanted for armed assault with intent to murder. He was arrested in Panama and is being held on $1 million bail, according to the Revere Police Department.

“Mr. Lemes’ return to the United States should send a clear message to fugitives: No matter where in the world you try to hide, we will find you and bring you back to face justice,” Harold H. Shaw, special agent in charge of the FBI Boston division, said in a statement. “This is a great example of how multiple government agencies and nations worked together to make sure he answers to his alleged crimes.”

Revere police worked with the FBI to locate Lemes in his hometown, a small village, and bring him back to Massachusetts.

In June 2008, Lemes allegedly attacked his roommate with a hammer and steak knife, hitting him repeatedly in the head and stabbing him several times in the back at their home in Revere. An arrest warrant out of Chelsea District Court was issued for Lemes after he failed to appear for an arraignment on two charges of armed assault with intent to murder in February.

Female jogger indecently touched in Revere

Lemes, who had begun the process of attempting to gain legal status, was ordered to turn over his passport and he did, but, within days of doing so, flew from John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Lemes is an undocumented immigrant from Mantenopolis, Brazil. He settled in Revere at the age of 15 and lived in Somerville before fleeing the country.

In March 2016, a federal arrest warrant was issued for Lemes by the U.S. District Court in Massachusetts on a charge of unlawful flight to avoid prosecution. The charge has a maximum punishment of imprisonment for five years.

Female jogger indecently touched in Revere

REVERE — State police are looking for the man who allegedly indecently assaulted a 33-year-old female jogger Wednesday morning on Revere Beach Boulevard.

The woman told state police shortly before 6 a.m. that she was running north along the sea wall side of the Boulevard near Revere Street when a man suddenly appeared in front of her.

“The man verbally accosted her and then grabbed her chest and buttocks,” David Procopio, state police spokesman, said in a statement. “The woman yelled at him, and the man began running south on the Boulevard and then onto Ocean Avenue toward the Wonderland MBTA station.”

Responding troopers were unable to locate the suspect, who is described as a Hispanic or white man in his early 20s. The suspect was wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt and a black and white bandana, possibly a skull-style bandana. The victim told police she had seen the man before while she was running.

The incident is under investigation. Anyone with information on the suspect’s identity can call state police in Revere at (781) 284-0038.

Police are urging anyone who uses any public space to be aware of their surroundings at all times and carry a charged cell phone to call 911 if they feel threatened or observe anything or anyone suspicious.

Big shoes to fill at Lynnfield

FILE PHOTO
Ryan Freitas will aim to play a key role this season for the Pioneers. 

By ANNE MARIE TOBIN

The Lynnfield boys lacrosse team had one of its best seasons in program history last year.  But if the Pioneers hope to pick up where they left off, they have a lot of roles to fill.

Last year’s team got off to the best start in program history, winning its first six games of the season.  After dropping three of their next five games, the Pioneers finished the season on a high note, winning four of their final five games to finish 12-4 and earn their highest tournament seed ever (No. 3).  After a first round bye, Lynnfield ran into a buzzsaw in the quarterfinals, losing a 4-3 heartbreaker to Cape Ann League rival Manchester-Essex.  

Lynnfield’s trademark last year was a suffocating defense that led the state across all divisions in goals allowed, surrendering an average of only 4.41 goals per game.

Last year six Pioneers received league all-star honors.  All of them are gone.  All told, the team lost  15 seniors to graduation, including goalie Jack Ganter and middie Patrick Garrity, who was the Pioneers’ leading scorer last year with 40 goals and 14 assists.

They also lost the core of their defensive unit, including Max Robert and Trevor Caswell.

“You can’t easily replace 15 graduated players who played four years in our system and only 70 games by simply flicking a switch,” said Pioneers coach Joe Papagni, the 2016 Baker Division Coach of the Year. “The remaining players hopefully have learned the example set by our graduates and the system we have used over the past 15 seasons, and hopefully that will allow us to compete in every game.”

This year’s team has only four returning seniors in captain Kingsley Corona, a goalie, defenseman Jimmy Whelan, defenseman David Mineo and attack/middie Ryan Freitas.

Juniors Nick Metrano (attack/mid), Peter Look (defensive mid), Jack Razzaboni (mid) and Nicholas Moreschi (defense) are also returning.

Look and Razzaboni were starters last year before suffering season-ending injuries.  

Papagni said Look and Razzaboni, along with Freitas, Ryan Frasier and Gianluca Alfe will be expected to provide some offensive spark.

“Nick Metrano, Ryan Frazier and Ryan Freitas have some varsity offensive playing time,” Papagni said. “Jimmy Whalen got a good amount of varsity time on defense but that’s really it for varsity experience.”

Papagni said finding a way to duplicate the defensive success the Pioneers had last year will be difficult, but not impossible.

“Our young team will force us to be in great shape, and play disciplined tough defense and possession offense,” he said. “We have a lot of work to do but we are all ready for the challenge.  

“Captain Kingsley Corona has big shoes to fill in net but is up for the challenge. He will need support from Jimmy Whalen on defense along with Anthony Murphy, Zach Hyung, Moreschi, Nick Buonfiglio, Harry Drislane; Hunter Alain, Mineo and Kevin Travers on defense.”

A promising newcomer is Peter Razzaboni, younger brother of Jack.

“He’s a face-off guy we really need, who may potentially develop into our best faceoff guy ever, if he continues to work at it,” said Papagni.

Lynnfield opens the new season next Tuesday, April 4 with a non-league game against Bedford.  The Pioneers also have non-league matches at home against Pope John (April 7), Revere (April 8), Cambridge Rindge and Latin (April 18), St. Mary’s (April 19) and, in the final game of the regular season, Tyngsborough (May 20).

The first CAL match for the Pioneers is scheduled for Tuesday, April 11 at Newburyport.

Rams celebrate season at team banquet

Classical coaches Tom Sawyer, left, and Helen Ridley, right, gave seniors Soneta Srey, second from left, and Priscill Alouidor a gift at the Rams’ girls basketball banquet Tuesday.

By KATIE MORRISON 

LYNN — The Lynn Classical girls basketball team had a season to remember in 2016-17. The Rams won 17 games, the highest win total for Classical since the 2003-04 season. They not only got the chance to host a state tournament game, but were able to win in their home gym, beating North Andover, 59-47, before falling to Billerica in the Division 1 North quarterfinals.

The Rams celebrated their impressive season on Tuesday night at Old Tyme Italian Cuisine in Lynn at the team’s annual banquet.

It was an emotional evening as Classical said farewell to a pair of seniors in Soneta Srey and Priscill Alouidor. Srey, a Northeastern Conference All-Star, was named the team’s Defensive Player of the Year. The senior scored a career-high 33 points against Everett in a season filled with highlights for both her and the Rams.

“We always put her (Srey) on the other team’s most important player,” Classical head coach Tom Sawyer said. “She always came through. She’s an unbelievable athlete.”

Alouidor received the Academic Achievement Award, as she holds a 4.18 grade point average and is 20th in her class.

The two seniors gave their own speeches at the end of the evening.

“Playing basketball isn’t just about winning, but about the memories you make and the fun you have, and I just realized that,” Srey said. “What you learn on the court, you apply to life as well.”

“I’m grateful for all the memories. There are times when I questioned playing this year, but I’m glad I did,” Alouidor said. “Even though I won’t be playing basketball in college, I will always tell people about the wonderful times I had at Classical.”

Paris Wilkey was honored as the team’s Best Offensive Player. The junior, who is closing in on 1,000 career points, averaged 17 points per game, scored 35 percent of the Rams’ points, and reached double figures in 20 of 22 games this season. She, along with Revere’s Valentina Pepic, was named co-Player of the Year in the NEC.

Irianis Delgado was named the Rookie of the Year for the Rams. Delgado became a large part of Classical’s offense as the season progressed, and scored 16 points in a 23-point victory over Saugus.

“She’s grown by leaps and bounds,” Sawyer said.

Jeylly Medrano, the team’s other NEC all-star selection, was named the Most Improved Player. Medrano had the tall task of taking over for 2016 Classical graduate Chenysse Hill at point guard, and Sawyer said she “did everything we asked of her and alleviated those concerns.”

Tyarah Horton received the Lady Ram Award for her hard work, dedication and hustle.

“We never have to coach her effort,” said Rams assistant coach Helen Ridley. “She’s our unsung hero.”

Also receiving awards for the sub-varsity teams were Izzy McGaughey (freshmen team’s Most Improved Player), Amber Crayton (freshmen Most Valuable Player), Jean Gupton (JV Most Improved Player), Jasmin Masse (JV Offensive Player of the Year) and Rebecca Walker (JV Coaches Award).

Sawyer thanked his coaching staff, which includes Ridley, junior varsity coach Rob Smith and freshmen coach Frank DeLuca. Ridley had kinds words of her own to share about Sawyer.

“This team has the best coach in the city. He could be a college coach,” Ridley said. “Your daughters are in great hands.”

Revere welcomes veterans to roundtable discussion

By LEAH DEARBORN

REVERE — American Legion Post 61 hosted a veterans’ roundtable discussion Saturday with a special tribute to those who served in Vietnam.

Organized by the mayor’s office and the Department of Veterans’ Services, the event was a chance for local veterans to network, find new resources and air grievances.  

Marc Silvestri, who took over as director of veterans’ affairs in the city about a month ago, said he wanted to acknowledge Vietnam Veterans Day, a national holiday on March 29.

A veteran of the U.S. Army who served in Afghanistan, Silvestri said there’s a huge difference between how he was treated upon returning home and how Vietnam veterans were received.

“I’m hoping to let them understand the city is always there for them. This is the first of many welcome homes for Vietnam veterans,” he said.

Silvestri said his future plans for the department include the development of a vet-to-vet mentoring program and a jobs initiative, both of which he hopes to implement within the next year.

A food bank focused on veterans and their families will continue to operate under Silvestri’s watch on the first Wednesday of every month out of the lodge at 249 Broadway, where it serves 180 families.

The development of 30 units of veterans’ housing on Shirley Avenue is in the works as well.

Ward 2 Councillor Ira Novoselsky said the units are still up to two years away from completion. They will be available to non-veterans as well, but service members will be given preference.

“It’s one of my dreams and I wanted to make it happen,” he said.

After a brief lunch, Silvestri spoke to the crowded room about benefits offered by the state, such as the Welcome Home Bonus.

He recommended that all veterans register with the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), if only to expedite the process of getting health care if a future need arises.

“They referred me to every kind of resource. It’s been incredible,” said Air Force veteran Burton Dowland, now a senior studying at Salem State University.

Dowland said he only signed up for the VA in 2010, despite being discharged decades ago. He was diagnosed with adult onset Type 2 diabetes, among other ailments.

“It literally saved my life,” he said.

Mayor Brian Arrigo, who attended the roundtable event, said its purpose was to ensure that communication goes both ways between the city and its veterans.

Silvestri said he hopes to host a district-wide roundtable discussion regarding veterans’ issues in the near future.

“It brings a sense of community and a bond that as veterans, we understand,” he said.

Revere Spring Carnival opens for 30th year

By BRIDGET TURCOTTE

REVERE — The Revere Spring Carnival opened Thursday night for the 30th straight year.

The Fiesta Shows carnival is at the Showcase Cinemas parking lot at 565 Squire Road. Crowds in the thousands swarm the carnival grounds for the games, traditional carnival food, petting zoo and two dozen rides.

“During fair season you see the more unique foods but in the springtime people want the typical fried dough, sausages, caramel apples, candy apples, cotton candy,” said EJ Dean, vice president of operations of Dean & Flynn, Inc., also called Fiesta Shows. “We don’t allow calories to count when you come to visit the carnival.”

Dean & Flynn, Inc. was founded by Eugene Dean and Jack Flynn in 1935 at Salisbury Beach. By 1950, the two showmen signed a contract to provide the carnival midway at the Topsfield Fair, the nation’s oldest fair that draws crowds of more than 500,000 people annually, according to their website. The team purchased Fiesta Shows in 1967 and has been the exclusive carnival partner of the Topsfield Fair for more than half a century.

Tell us if you’re running the Boston Marathon

With a roller coaster, kiddie rides for children, thriller rides for teens, a carousel for the nostalgic parents and bumper cars, Dean said they’ve catered to all demographics for Revere’s carnival.

Farmyard animals from Step by Step Animal Adventures, a farm in Orange, will be on site to meet with visitors each day.

The festival is sponsored by the McCarthy-Trifone Recreation Committee. Proceeds from the event go back to the committee to fund youth programs, including sports, said Dean.

The carnival will run through April 16 and is open Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 6 p.m., Tuesday and Thursday at 5 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday at 1 pm.

Unlimited ride armbands are sold Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday for $25 per person.

Morrison: Elementary School Tournament is top-notch

FILE PHOTO
Denzel Guillen gets ready to shoot a free throw. 

By KATIE MORRISON

One of my favorite events of the year is the Lynn Elementary School Basketball Tournament. It may be because I’m a sucker for cute kids playing sports, especially when that comes in the form of a peanut-sized fourth-grader using all the strength she can muster to hit the backboard. But that’s not all of it.

I have to give due recognition to tournament organizer Sean Morris and the rest of the staff and coaches that make the tournament run. The first time I covered the event last year, I was shocked at how smoothly everything ran. Any tournament that size (with 32 teams) is bound to have its hiccups. But if it says on the schedule a game will start at 5:15, you better believe tip-off is going to be at 5:15. There are uniforms with names and numbers, and even — this is my favorite part, as a photographer — full rosters for every team. I cannot stress how rare that is. Even high school teams struggle to assemble an up-to-date roster for a game at times.

And then there are the games themselves. Some are blowouts; some teams struggle to even score a basket. But there are plenty of tight contests. I watched one of those Wednesday evening, as the Washington boys beat Shoemaker, 25-23. I love how into the game the fans, players and coaches were. You would have thought you were watching a high school tournament game, just in a smaller gym with less people and pocket-sized players.

Washington held the advantage for most of the game, but Shoemaker clawed back into it, taking the lead as time was winding down in the second half. But free throws from Donel Kabongo and Denzell Guillen iced the victory for Washington.

The tournament is special because it brings people from all over the city together to watch games that are competitive, yet fun for both teams, winners and losers. It’s not always the best basketball; I’ve seen more jump balls and kids wrestling on the ground for possession in the first few days of the tournament than I saw all of the high school season, but it’s a really fun brand of basketball that’s entertaining for everyone. If you’re around Pickering Middle School over the next few days, it’s worth it to stop in and watch a game or two. They go pretty quick, even with the 20-minute halves, and admission is only a dollar. And chances are, especially as the field narrows and the stronger teams start clashing, you’ll get plenty of bang for your buck.

Congratulations to Paris Wilkey for earning Northeastern Conference co-Player of the Year honors, along with Revere’s Valentina Pepic. I was thrilled not only that Wilkey was recognized for her efforts, but also that her teammates, Soneta Srey and Jeylly Medrano, as well as English’s Dorathy Ezemba, were also named to the all-star team. All four of these girls are such fun players to watch. When Wilkey is on (and not double or triple-teamed), she can take over a game. The same goes for Ezemba, who is just an all-around tough player. She was a force for the Bulldogs this year. Medrano is a strong point guard for Classical with a lot of talent.

But I really want to talk about the only senior in that group, Srey. She’s been so much fun to watch over the past couple of years. She’s one of the scrappiest players I’ve seen, always diving for loose balls and playing lockdown defense. Srey isn’t one of the most naturally talented shooters, but she’s so athletic, it doesn’t matter. She drives through the paint and gets to the hoop. And if you’ve ever seen her play volleyball, you know that even though she’s not tall, she can compete with anyone for rebounds thanks to her jumping abilities. Srey is always all smiles; she looks like she’s having a great time on the court. And that makes her so much fun to watch.

The beginning of the spring season has to be a challenging time for coaches. The games are coming up quick; many baseball, softball, lacrosse, tennis and track teams play the first week of April. And the majority of those teams will only have maybe a week of outdoor practices under their belts by then. Coaches can work on fundamentals and conditioning while cooped up inside, but for baseball and softball especially, you just can’t replicate being outside.

For example, at English, baseball coach Joe Caponigro was itching to get on the field to work on fly balls, since it’s impossible to track them in the gym. At Tech, the softball team has to split the gym with track, meaning that it can’t set up a batting cage or find a good spot for pitchers to practice.

But then again, most schools in the area are dealing with the same issues. It might take a while for these teams to find their rhythm once the season starts.
