hree years after millions of Americans began pouring buckets of ice water over their heads to raise money and awareness for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), Kathryne McKenna, who has spent the past two years battling the disease, continues to be a proponent of the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. On Aug. 24, McKenna was drenched with two gallon-size buckets of ice water during an event that she organized at the Leonard Florence Center for Living in Chelsea.

“Our star today is Kathryne McKenna, she spearheaded this idea,” said Sharon Loveridge, the center’s activity services director. The first bucket was from McKenna’s childhood friends State Rep. Paul Tucker and State. Sen. Joan Lovely, while the second gallon was courtesy of her older brother Robert. “It’s amazing what a few plastic buckets could do when this thing went viral,” said Tucker, adding that his son and Peter Frates, reportedly the innovator of the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, were classmates at

St. John’s Preparatory School. Lovely said the Ice Bucket Challenge will continue to be a late-summer event. “It’s international now, every August until there is a cure,” she said. “What they’ve done is nothing short of amazing.” Prior to being diagnosed with ALS in 2015, McKenna had worked as a flight attendant, an assistant to Olympic figure skater Nancy Kerrigan and as a physical therapy assistant for Lahey Healthcare. A second ALS patient, Steven


n response to the rise in the number of alcohol-related medical calls in downtown Peabody, Police Sgt. David Bonfanti went before the Licensing Board with a request for assistance. He asked the board to send out a letter warning package stores about the consequences of selling alcohol to someone who is already inebriated. “One of the questions when you arrest someone for OUI [Operating Under the Influence] is ‘Where did you get your last drink?’” said Bonfanti. He said that, thus far, his officers have not been able to identify which stores are the repeat offenders. Bonfanti said that a letter from the board would have the desired effect. “That way we can also hold the establishment accountable,” he said. In response, the board voted unanimously to send the additional correspondence to every alcohol license holder in the city. “It’s ultimately someone walking into a package store intoxicated,” said Member Deborah Baglio. “The business has to take some liability, because we would hold a restaurant liable.” Bonfanti asked if the warning letters could be sent before October when the liquor license renewal letters usually go out. “We have events coming up and I don’t want to see them ruined,” he said, adding

that the East End Veterans Memorial Park on Walnut Street has become a hotbed for public drinking. In other news, Karen Scorez was on hand to represent the Peabody Coffee House on behalf of her husband William who was away on Cape Cod. During the past several months, the board had become frustrated with the closed establishment, as a business timeline as well as an application for a change of officers, directors and managers had not been filed. Communication from the restaurant had also come to a standstill, and board members said the establishment’s liquor license had continued to go unused. Therefore, the board had insisted that representatives from the coffee house attend the Aug. 28 meeting. However, Attorney John Keilty sent notification that that date would not be possible. The hearing has now been rescheduled for Sept. 11. While addressing the board, Scorez said there are currently “two or three” individuals who are interested in purchasing the property at 59 Walnut St. Although Scorez said she had “no interest and no information,” Member Frederick Murtaugh was not satisfied.“We were never notified; it’s long overdue, something’s got to be done,” he said. “Someone’s got to get the message to William Scorez; this has been going on for a year and four months.”

City schools to receive $196K for early education and care By Christopher Roberson


rograms under the umbrella of early education and care will be getting a $196,418 infusion, as Peabody was recently chosen as a partial recipient of a $46 million state grant. “As part of our commitment to early education, we are proud to announce more than $46 million to help strengthen early education services and programs for young children and their families in cities and towns across Massachusetts,” said Gov. Charlie Baker in a written statement. Lt. Gov. Karyn Polito said the funds will provide teachers with

the support they need to be successful. “Our administration is pleased to issue these awards that equip early education and care programs and teachers with the resources they need to provide high‐quality care and enrichment for their students,”she said. “The $46 million in funding will go a long way in providing quality early education and care for families in every corner of the Commonwealth.” Thomas Weber, commissioner of early education and care, echoed the sentiments of Baker and Polito. “The services and supports

that these initiatives provide to the early education and care field are critical to helping them positively impact the lives of Massachusetts’ youngest learners,” he said. “Increasing the capacity of our early childhood workforce to foster children’s learning and healthy development strengthens families and our communities.” In April, the Baker‐Polito Administration put forward a six-percent increase in the state’s early education budget, the largest since 2007, for the purpose of “increasing quality for early education and care for low-income families.”

Education Secretary James Peyser lauded the benefits that the new increase has brought forward. “Our underlying theme in early education is focused on quality, and in particular, on the workforce as the lever by which we are going to improve outcomes for children,” he said. School Committee Member Brandi Carpenter said the money will be used for the Coordinated Family and Community program, which continues to grow. “It covers more than just Peabody,” she said. However, Carpenter said she would still like to see higher

teacher salaries as well. “I believe that while the increase is welcome for the state and Peabody, our early childhood educators across the nation are the lowest paid professionals working with the most vulnerable, needy, valuable and important person in that family’s life,” she said, adding that the overhead costs of early education are astronomical. “Most early child educators earn less than fast food workers, leaving the person that cares for your child living close to the poverty level – yet you pay them probably more than half of your paycheck.”

t about 11:30 a.m. on Aug. 28, resident Wilson Lobao, 76, went outside to clear some brush behind his home at 327 Lowell St., however, he never returned. As the hours passed, Lobao’s wife Peggy sensed something was very wrong and notified police at 3:53 p.m.

According to police, a retaining wall had given way, which caused “several large boulders” to land on top of Lobao. He was found in the vicinity of Proctor Brook and was pronounced dead later that night. In addition, large pieces of equipment were needed to remove the boulders to reach Lobao’s body. To keep traffic out of the

area, the Department of Public Works set up detours at the intersections of Summit Street and Lowell Street, Northshore Road and Lowell Street as well as the Route 128 southbound ramp and Lowell Street. Carrie Kimball-Monahan, spokesman for the Essex District Attorney’s Office, said foul play is not suspected at this time.

Quadros-Lopez running for Portuguese and Latino families By Christopher Roberson


n her push for a seat on the seven-member School Committee, Linda Quad-

ros-Lopez is looking forward to representing Peabody’s Portuguese and Latino populations. “I speak Portuguese and some Spanish and I can

relate to some of the issues that they may be concerned with,” she said. “I feel that sets me apart from the other candidates.”

Linda Quadros-Lopez Although Quadros-Lopez said she has not run for an elected position in the past, she has held a number of leadership positions in the private sector. “I know how to improve and what to focus on to make our schools better,” she said. “I have a passion for seeing improvements in my city through the school system.” Having attended the Peabody Public Schools from kindergarten through 11th grade, Quadros-Lopez said she has become acutely aware of the district’s shortfalls. “I want to be a part of our school system; as a new mom, I worry about the direction that our schools have been taking,” she said. “I want to be a change agent and I feel called to get involved in local government and be a voice for the community.” Quadros-Lopez citied subpar test scores and a lack of financing as the district’s two biggest obstacles. “I believe

that there are lots of low-income people and that affects learning at times. I would like to address that and look at ways to help our students get an equally excellent education,” she said. “Our test scores are low and I would like to look at better ways to teach our students so they are testing better and retaining what they learn better.” Quadros-Lopez also said the bubble sheets of old should be phased out. “I would love to see less of a focus on standardized testing and more of a focus on individual needs, critical thinking and creativity,” she said. Looking back on the budget season for fiscal year 2018, Quadros-Lopez said she was “upset” that funding never surfaced for additional guidance counselors. However, she maintained that school officials and Mayor Edward Bettencourt “did their best to pass a good budget.” During her time on the campaign trail, Quadros-Lopez said, she has noticed that for voters, having first-time candidates on the ballot is a breath of fresh air. “I enjoy meeting people in my community as well as meeting other city elected officials,” she said. “I have learned that you need to get out there and just meet and listen to as many people as possible.”

O’Neill is one of three candidates for Ward 6 seat By Christopher Roberson

get our message out by walking door to door in the neighborhoods,” he said. “The voters of Ward 6 really want to meet a candidate in person to get a sense of who they are as people.” Despite not knowing Geom-


ecognizing the need for “strong and independent” representation, Mark O’Neill decided to make a bid for Ward 6 councillor, running against fellow challengers Michael Geomelos and Margaret Tierney. A Ward 6 resident since 1972 and a product of the Peabody Public Schools, O’Neill said he has worked in the private sector for 25 years. “I grew up in this ward and want to make sure others have the same opportunities that I did as a youngster,” he said. As a result of his work in the private sector, O’Neill has extensive experience in formulating budgets, conducting negotiations and analyzing contracts. “Good communication skills, which includes being a good listener, will help if I am fortunate to be elected to the City Council,” said O’Neill. In addition, he has spent a considerable amount of time working with youth sports teams as well as in other volunteer work. A first-time candidate, O’Neill said he is concerned about the proposed Birch-

elos or Tierney very well, O’Neill remains confident that Ward 6 voters will remember him when they go to the polls in September and November. With three candidates vying for one seat, Ward 6 will be the only ward in which a prelim-

inary election will be necessary. The two winners will then advance to the Nov. 7 General Election. O’Neill and his wife, Tracey, reside on Antrim Road with their two children, Caroline and Joseph.

Mark O’Neill wood Estates development. “The Planning Board is currently reviewing this proposal, but I intend on working to ensure that the development does not have an adverse effect on its neighbors,” he said, adding that traffic, noise and flooding could all be exacerbated if the project is approved. “We have had some tough winters in recent years and I know residents are hoping that we can get some of the more damaged streets repaired.” O’Neill said significant progress has been made in his run for City Council; however, the time for rest is anything but close. “We are working hard to

State Rep. Paul Tucker (second from left) got a little damp himself during the Aug. 24 Ice Bucket Challenge event in Chelsea.

CHALLENGE | FROM PAGE 1 Saling, addressed the crowd using his computer, as he can no longer speak. He said there is a real sense of hope in the new drug Radicava, which was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) four months ago. It is the first ALS treatment option to receive FDA approval since Ri-

luzole got the green light in 1995. The development of Radicava was funded by the $100 million in donations that the ALS Association received during the first weeks of the Ice Bucket Challenge in 2014. In contrast, the association received a total of $19.4 million throughout all of 2013. Although there is still no cure for ALS, Radicava has

been proven to slow the debilitating effects of the disease. Therefore, Saling lauded the tremendous level of attention that was created by the Ice Bucket Challenge. “I no longer have to say ‘Lou Gehrig’s disease’ to get a flicker of recognition,” he said, adding that patients should focus on living with ALS rather than dying from ALS.

In addition to being an Eagle Scout and a landscape architect for 13 years, Saling cofounded of the ALS Resident Initiative, a program designed to “restore the freedom and independence that disease and injury has so cruelly taken from the physically disabled.” Saling urged everyone to also take part in the Walk for Living, which is scheduled for

8 a.m. on Oct. 1 at the Center for Living, which is located at 165 Captains Row in Chelsea. Every year, approximately 6,000 Americans receive the devastating news that they have the disease, according to the ALS Association. Once they are diagnosed, patients generally have three to 10 years to live.

The Nutritionist Corner

Snack Time!

By Anna Tourkakis, Nutritionist Tasty snacks to keep energy up and mind focused. A recent magazine cover touted “20 best snacks ever”. I eagerly flipped the pages to get some ideas. Instead I found a list of supermarket shelf products of chips and snack bars. Not my idea of a “best snack ever”. Snacks are a great opportunity to energize in-between meals. Preparing your own homemade snacks can add nutrient rich foods. Healthy snacks that also contain fiber-rich whole grains and protein can give lasting energy. Steer clear of highly processed snacks. Such as chips, candy and even many types of crackers are filled with added sugar, salt and saturated fat. The combination of these ingredients


is designed to make us crave more and over eat. Yet with a little creativity, it’s easy to whip up some nutritious and tasty snacks. If you are going more than 5 hours between meals or find you are ravenous at meal times, a snack in-between is needed to prevent from getting over hungry. Start by replacing less healthy snacks with healthier foods and beverages. Snack ideas Have a plan for your snacks. Make a snack a mini meal. Begin with nutritious components, which would include: a protein source, a fruit or vegetable and/ or a grain. Here are some ideas: Crunchy snack; • Almond butter or peanut butter with whole grain crackers • Whole wheat crackers with nuts and fruits • Cereal, low sugar (6 grams or less), with fruit and milk Savory snack: • Toast with egg

• Hummus with whole grain crackers • Whole grain crackers with string cheese Sweet snack: • Banana mixed into plain yogurt and sprinkled with 1 tablespoon of mini dark chocolate chips • Graham crackers drizzled with a tablespoon of honey and chocolate milk • Homemade granola fruit square (recipe below) Make it fun As your student gets more involved in the school year keep up with the nutrition supply. Good nutrition has been found to be an imperative piece of overall performance at any age. Advertising may make the supermarket shelf snacks appealing. Don’t be tempted - healthier homemade snacks are fun to prepare and delicious to eat. Bring Eating From Within to your workplace! Contact me to learn more about my corporate wellness programs.

Desperate Daughter Dear Desperate, Depending on where your dad lives, there are check-in call services, volunteer visiting programs, and a variety of technology options you can turn to that can help you keep tabs on him. Here are several to check into. Daily Check-in Calls To make sure your dad is OK every day, consider signing him up with a daily check-in call service program. These are telephone reassurance programs run by police or sheriff’s departments in hundreds of counties across the country and are usually provided free of charge. Here’s how they work. A computer automated phone system would call your dad at a designated time each day to check-in. If he answers, the system would assume everything is OK. But if he didn’t pick up or if the call goes to voice mail after repeated tries, you (or whoever his designee is) would get a notification call. If you are not reachable, calls are then made to backup people who’ve also agreed to check on your dad if necessary. The fallback is if no one can be reached, the police or other emergency services personnel will be dispatched to his home. To find out if this service is available in your dad’s community, call his local police department’s nonemergency number. If, however, the police or sheriff’s department in your dad’s community doesn’t provide a daily check-in call program, there are a number of companies you can turn to that offer similar services offered directly to consumers for under $15 per month. Some to check into include the CARE senior calling program (, CareCheckers ( and IAmFine ( Volunteer Visiting Programs Another option you may also want to investigate is volunteer visiting programs, which are usually run by churches, community groups, or social service agencies. These programs provide volunteers who will visit an older adult in their home usually for an hour or two once a week, providing companionship as well as the reassurance that someone is checking in on a regular basis. They can also alert you if they notice your dad’s health or living conditions start to decline. To find out if these services are available, check with local churches or the area agency on aging near your dad – call the Eldercare Locator at 800-677-1116 for contact information. Technology Solutions Technology also offers a number of ways to help keep your dad safe at home, and help you keep an eye on him from afar. For example, for safety and peace of mind there are medical alert systems, which provide a wearable “help button” that would allow him to call for help anytime he needed it. Some of these systems (like Bay Alarm Medical, also offer wall-mounted buttons that can be placed near the floor in high fall risk areas like the bathroom or kitchen, if he didn’t wear a help button. And to help you keep daily tabs on your dad, there are wireless sensor-monitoring systems (like Silver Mother, Sen. se/silvermother) you could put in his home that will notify you if something out of the ordinary is happening; and video monitoring cameras (like the Nest Cam, that have built-in motion and sound detection that will let you know when something is detected, and two-way audio that will let you talk and listen to him.

Beacon Hill Roll Call By Bob Katzen THE HOUSE AND SENATE: There were no roll calls in the House or Senate last week. This week, Beacon Hill Roll Call reports the percentage of times local representatives voted with their party’s leadership in 2017 through August 25. The votes of the 2017 membership of 34 Republicans were compared with those of GOP House Minority Leader Bradley Jones (R-North Reading). The votes of the 2017 membership of 122 Democrats were compared to House Speaker Robert DeLeo (D-Winthrop). Beacon Hill Roll Call uses 72 votes from the 2017 House session as the basis for this report. This includes all roll calls that were not quorum calls or on local issues. A total of 78 of the 123 Dem-

The Democratic representatives who voted the lowest percentage of times with DeLeo are Reps. Colleen Garry (D-Dracut) who voted with DeLeo only 62.3 percent of the time and Jonathan Zlotnik (D-Gardner) who voted with DeLeo only 68.1 percent of the time. Only four of the 34 GOP members voted with Jones 100 percent of the time. That means only 11.8 percent of the Republicans always voted with Jones. The GOP representatives who voted with Jones the lowest percentage of times are Reps. Susannah Whipps (Independent-Athol) who voted Festival Weekend Launch Party: Friday, September 8, 6:00 p.m.-8:00 p.m. – Chestnut Street near City Hall with entertainment, food and spirits. 16th Annual Progeria Race for Research: Saturday, September 9,, 9:00 a.m. – Leather City Common across from AOH Hall.

REPRESENTATIVES’ PERCENTAGE OF VOTES SUPPORTING THEIR PARTY’S LEADER IN 2017 The percentage next to the representative’s name represents the percentage of times the representative supported his or her party’s leader. The number in parentheses represents the number of times the representative opposed his or her party’s leader. Some representatives voted on all 72 roll call votes. Others missed one or more of the 72 votes. The percentage for each representative is calculated based on the number of roll calls on which he or she voted and does not count the roll calls for which he or she was absent. Rep.

HOW LONG WAS LAST WEEK’S SESSION? Beacon Hill Roll Call tracks the length of time that the House and Senate were in session each week. Many legislators say that legislative sessions are only one aspect of the Legislature’s job and that a lot of important work is done outside of the House and Senate chambers. They note that their jobs also involve committee work, research, constituent work and other matters that are important to their districts. Critics say that the Legislature does not meet regularly or long enough to debate and vote in public view on the thousands of pieces of legislation that have been filed. They note that the infrequency and brief length of sessions are misguided and lead to irresponsible latenight sessions and a mad rush to act on dozens of bills in the

days immediately preceding the end of an annual session. During the week of August 21-25, the House met for a total of 40 minutes while the Senate met for a total of 46 minutes. MON.

PEABODY PD INCIDENTS & ARRESTS TUESDAY, AUGUST 15 Bad start, great policy A Jennings Circle resident called police to report that her delivered package containing a $50 pair of pliers was stolen from her front door. She also stated that her son found the empty box in the bushes in her yard. An officer spoke to the victim and was informed that she spoke to Amazon and they would be replacing the item. Not much into botany, neighbor? A North Central Street resident reported to police that their neighbor had driven over their flowers in what was determined to be an ongoing dispute. The officer reported that he will be speaking to the neighbor in the future.

Police were called to The Highlands at Dearborn Road due to a report of six to eight people making noise at the hot tub. Dispatched officers reported the parties had returned to their apartment.

THURSDAY, AUGUST 17 Ya never know what you’re going to see A caller from the Central Street housing projects reported seeing a man crawling through the mulch in some bushes. A dispatched officer reported that he was unable to locate anyone.


Let’s hope he was reading The Peabody Advocate A caller on Veterans Memorial Drive reported that an older white male in a pick-up truck was acting suspicious and recalled the man being arrested several months ago for “having guns.” An officer reported the man was only reading the newspaper.

Lowlife’s extortion attempt fails A woman called police to report that she received a phone call claiming her father was being held for ransom and she was ordered to pay for his release. When the daughter texted her father, she received a reply demanding to pay the money. Police attempted to contact the father’s cellphone for a well-being check but could not make contact. Police discovered the man’s location and reported that he was in good health and would be contacting his daughter.

The Hot Tub Club is now closed

Better hope Ozzy doesn’t find out


A man claiming to run his own radio station reported that he has been getting scammed by a company claiming to collect royalties for musicians and artists whose music he’s been playing. The man stated that the company hasn’t been paying any royalties to the music companies. Lesson learned – the hard way Police were dispatched to a Howard Avenue residence due to a report of a female who ate a marijuana gummy bear and smoked a joint and was stating that she “felt like she was going to die.” The officer reported that medical aid was not needed.

SUNDAY, AUGUST 20 Hate to yell and run but … An Andover Street resident reported that an unknown male in a small black vehicle pulled into her driveway and began yelling at her, then fled down the road toward Wilson Square. Officers were unable to locate the vehicle.

Special Power Of Appointment To Charitable Organization


n a recent Board of Hearing decision on August 18, 2017, the Hearing Officer ruled in favor of the MassHealth applicant and did not count the assets of an irrevocable trust for purposes of a MassHealth eligibility determination. MassHealth has recently attempted to argue that a special power of appointment contained in an irrevocable trust allowing the Settlor/Grantor/Donor of the trust to appoint (distribute) the trust principal to a non-profit or charitable organization made the trust corpus countable and therefore placed the assets of the applicant in excess of the $2,000 limit. MassHealth is taking this position due to the recently-decided Supreme Judicial Court (SJC) decision handed down on the Daly and Nadeau cases, wherein the SJC remanded the cases back to MassHealth to allow it the opportunity to determine if such a power would in effect allow the Settlor of such a trust to appoint the trust corpus to a non-profit nursing home and therefore be able to have his or her long-term nursing home expenses paid for with the trust corpus. The hearing officer went

on to say “MassHealth must review the Trust instrument as a whole, and it does not have free rein to create a scenario which may hypothetically allow access to principal, without concern as to whether the action is prohibited by the Trust or contrary to the fiduciary responsibility and duties of the Trustee. What is relevant when determining if there is access to assets held in Trust, is whether, despite language to the contrary, there is a provision that allows the applicant control over trust principal within the language of the Trust itself”. The hearing officer went on further to say “After review, I do not find any provisions in the Trust that establish a set of circumstances that allows the appellant access to principal of the Trust. The provisions highlighted by MassHealth (Trustee discretion to distribute principal to the appellant’s issue (children or grandchildren), the ability of the appellant to remove the Trustee at any time, the Trustee’s power to allocate principal to a charitable organization or the Trustee’s ability to manage the Trust assets) fail to demonstrate how the appellant has access to Trust principal without violating other provisions in the Trust itself”. We need more decisions like this one in order to put an end to the endless meritless attacks by MassHealth with respect to irrevocable trusts. It will be one case at a time.
