Tanners squash Sachems on T-Day, 33-7 Team effort ends season with winning record By Greg Phipps


he Peabody Tanners were looking to win out over their last six games of the 2017 campaign. They came close to that goal, finishing 5-1 over that stretch to reverse a slow start and complete a 6-5 season. In their traditional Thanksgiving Day clash against the Saugus Sachems last Thursday morning at muddy Stackpole Field in Saugus, the Tanners found themselves in a gritty 0-0 deadlock through one quarter before breaking it open with two second-quarter touchdowns on their way to a convincing 33-7 victory. The host Sachems came out strong and could have tallied early points if not for one big turnover in particular. Elijah White forced a Saugus fumble at the goal line and the ball was recovered by Cam Powers to thwart the scoring chance. In all, Saugus would actually outgain Peabody by 72 yards in the first half, but the Tanners carried a 14-0 lead into the break. Running backs Noah Freedman (5-yard TD run) and Eric DeMayo (2-yard score) gave Peabody

New England Meat Market Peabody rings in the season with Holiday Stroll and Tree Lighting needs liquor license back By Christopher Roberson


n August of this year, the state Alcoholic Beverages Control Commission approved the transfer of the beer and wine license from New England Meat Market to Mutual Market – now that transaction needs to be reversed. During the Nov. 27 meeting of the Licensing Board, Attorney Thomas Truax, counsel for New England Meat Market, said the original plan was to fund the transfer through a loan from TD Bank. However, the loan was denied because of the market’s lack of income during the past three years. Truax said market owner Charles Silva then turned to Gloucester Bank and Leader Bank for a loan. Yet both institutions agreed that the matter needed to be handled by the Small Business Administration. Truax said his client’s latest attempt to obtain financing has been through Granite State Savings Bank, which recently indicated that additional information will be needed before a loan can be approved. In

the meantime, the meat market does not hold a valid license to sell alcohol. “I’ve been doing this 30 years and I’ve never had this happen before,” said Truax. “I’m sort of in a quandary as to what to do.” Board Member Frederick Murtagh asked if the business could survive without selling beer and wine until the problem is resolved. Silva said such a move would only create more of a financial hardship. Chairman Minas Dakos said the board will continue to stay involved as the matter moves forward. “If we can help you, we’re going to do it,” he said. Until a resolution is reached, it is possible that New England Meat Market can continue to sell beer and wine under its former license, which is still held by Mutual Market. In other news, the board voted unanimously to approve a new all-alcohol license for La Siesta Restaurante, which is slated to open at 3 Main St. in February 2018.

OVEMBER 17, 2017, DANVERS, MA – As a part of his commitment to expanding and maintaining IRA knowledge and expertise, Thomas T. Riquier, CFP®, president of The Retirement Financial Center in Danvers, completed three days of advanced IRA training in Kansas City, Missouri. This in-depth workshop with Ed Slott and Company, America’s IRA Experts, provided in-depth retirement account planning strategies, estate planning techniques, new tax laws, and the importance of continuous IRA training. “Roth IRAs were first introduced in 1998, and after spending the last 20 years of my career educating both financial professionals and consumers on retirement account planning strategies, I can say that many Americans

are just as confused about the rules surrounding Roth IRAs as they were 20 years ago,” said Ed Slott, CPA, founder of Ed Slott and Company and a nationally recognized IRA expert who was named “The Best Source for IRA Advice” by The Wall Street Journal. “Riquier has been associated with our advanced training program for 8 years, and I commend him for staying current with his retirement planning education so that he can best serve his clients as they transition into retirement. With this ongoing training, Riquier can confidently answer his clients’ toughest Roth IRA questions and provide them with knowledgeable advice and insight.” “By regularly attending the in-depth training provided by Ed Slott and his team, I am confident that I am up-to-

Highlights from this event included: an in-depth look at Net Unrealized Appreciation (NUA) planning and strategies, a review of the once per year IRA rollover rule,

IRA and included frequently asked questions about this type of retirement account. “Now more than ever, it’s important that people are working with financial professionals who have specialized IRA knowledge and training,” said Slott. “Advisors not specifically trained in the intricacies of advanced planning may not understand how to effectively build an exit strategy for their clients’ assets and may fail to create a plan that will get them through retirement.

Harlem Wizards dazzle Peabody Pride with basketball antics By Christopher Roberson


eachers from the Carroll, Burke and McCarthy Elementary Schools recently joined other city officials to form the Peabody Pride as they

took on the Harlem Wizards in a charity basketball game. Hosted by the Carroll Parent Teacher Organization (PTO), the Nov. 20 game raised approximately $3,500 for enrichment programs, field trips as

well as technology and classroom supplies. Mayor Edward Bettencourt, who was captain of the Holy Cross Division I basketball team in the mid-1990s, was on the court for Peabody along with Councillor-at-Large Thomas Gould, who served as the Pride’s head coach.

“It was a lot of fun to be part of the game and to help raise money for Peabody schools,” said Gould. “To also see how athletic and entertaining the Wizards were was quite a thrill.” Despite Harlem’s trickery that featured frequent dunks and ball-handling that was almost a blur, the Pride managed to end the first quarter with a 21-20 lead. However, that was just about all Peabody could muster against professional basketball players as the Wizards went into halftime with a 43-31 advantage. More interested in comedy than basketball, the Wizards stopped the game several times to run up into the stands, take selfies and dance with the fans. Yet, Harlem still put the game away in the second half, ultimately outscoring the Pride by 40 points. Carroll Principal Tracy Smith

said she enjoyed being part of the event. “The game was awesome; it was so great to see the communities of the Carroll, Burke and McCarthy Schools come together for the kids,” she said. “The Wizards did score, like, 40 points on us during my four minutes in the game, but we still had fun.” Carroll School Secretary Sandra DaCunha said it was a pleasure to represent Peabody’s children. “I had a great time playing against the Harlem Wizards; being able to be on the court with these professionals and playing within their show was amazing,” she said. “The best part of the night was seeing all the kids with huge smiles on their faces. That was the main reason that I participated in the event: It was all for the kids.” Elementar y School Re source Officer Richard Co-

HARLEM WIZARDS | FROM PAGE 6 chran said the game was “fantastic.”“Those guys are so professional, and they did such a good job of keeping everybody laughing,” he said. “They’re just truly down to earth with their entertaining craft.” Burke School PTO President Amanda Jolly said she liked seeing the three elementary schools come together for the same reason. “We all have

a common goal and that is to better the education experience for all of our students,” she said, adding that a countless number of volunteers worked tirelessly behind the scenes to ensure that the event went off without a hitch.“There were a lot of moving parts and it would not have run smoothly without all of our amazing volunteers.” According to the team’s website, the Wizards were formed in 1962 as a spinoff of the famed Harlem Globetrotters. Since

then, the team has helped raise millions of dollars every year for schools and nonprofit organizations around the country. Some of the Harlem players on hand in Peabody were Dwayne Simpson, John Smith, James Tyndal and Roscoe Johnson. Simpson, a former Globetrotter and a forward, has been with the Wizards for 10 years and is currently the team captain. A Wizard since 2011, Smith also plays the forward position.

Prior to joining the team, he spent six years playing basketball in 25 countries. Tyndal, a guard, joined the Wizards in 2009 after four years on the college level playing for the Buffalo State Bengals. Johnson, another forward and former Globetrotter, became a Wizard in 2013. In 2011 he was the runner-up in the Sprite Slam Dunk Showdown. He also appeared in a commercial for Foot Locker the following year.

Quarterback Jonell Espinal tossed two scoring passes – a 26-yarder to Freedman and a 9-yard strike to Dylan Peluso, who also hauled in a 58-yard bomb from QB Colby Therrien in the fourth stanza to account for the final Peabody points. “That was a very scary first quarter. We easily could have been down 14-0, and the kids made big plays to keep points off the board,” Tanners head coach Mark Bettencourt told the press afterward. “The big plays are coming from different kids, and that’s what excites me about this football team. We’re not a one-pony show.”

Saugus managed to avoid the shutout with an 84-yard kickoff return for a score late in the final quarter. The Peabody defense ended up holding the Sachems to just five total yards in the second half. With his team’s strong finish after opening the season 1-4 – scoring 177 total points over its last six games (a 29.5 per-game average) and the lone loss over that span being a close overtime defeat at Lynn Classical – Bettencourt has to be feeling good about the prospects for next season. “This team didn’t quit just because we didn’t make the playoffs,” he said. “They were determined to fight and work [their] way back to respectability. The seniors, and more importantly the young guys, didn’t fold. It shows this program doesn’t

fold over.” One of the standouts among the underclassmen was sophomore RB Angel Paulino, who gained 89 yards against Saugus and finished with 582 total, after first filling in for the injured DeMayo in a 20-9 win over Beverly back on Oct. 20. Defensively, the Tanners allowed 152 points (an average of just under 14 points a game) during the season, and they gave up less than 10 points a game over the final six contests. On Thanksgiving, White and Chris Glass each had an interception while Dariel Canela had four sacks and Powers one. Senior Nolan Murphy had a key 30-yard punt return. The Tanners have won the last four Thanksgiving Day battles and now own a 44-28 series advantage over the Sachems.

ake sure you’re properly fueled through out the day, which is especially important during these holiday times, but avoid mindless snacking. If you let yourself get too hungry you could end up feeling weak and run out of steam by the end of the day. Or you may simply feel hungry, mak-

ing it hard to focus on activities to get accomplished. However, unnecessary snacking in-between meals may leave you uncomfortable and add calories you don’t need. Timing Snacks: A good way to assess if you need a snack is to keep track of your meal times. A snack may be appropriate if you it’s been at least 3 hours since your last meal and you feel hungry. For example, if you had lunch at 12:30 pm and then stop at the mall for an hour at 4:30 pm,

Choosing Snacks: Munching a snack while you head to the mall may not give you the benefits you’re seeking if it’s a high fat, sugar and salt fast food type choice. A well-timed snack can help fuel your energy as well as stabilize blood sugar levels, which helps fuel the brain and central nervous system. This helps keep you mentally alert. A well-balanced snack consisting of whole grain, protein and fat helps with satiety and prevent a big blood sugar spike followed by a drastic fall. Foods such as low-fat yogurt, cheese sticks, nuts, seeds and lean meats are quick sources of protein and healthy fat. Choosing whole grains or whole fruit

Tangerines, walnuts, baby carrots, and multigrain crackers are all great examples for a well-timed and properly sized snack!

Selecting Snack Size: The size of your snack should depend on you mealtime. If your mealtime is within two hours then make your snack simple and light–typically 100 to 200

calories. If the meal is within the hour stick with cut up vegetables or fruit. So, avoid unnecessary snacking, but if your energy lags during the day, a smart in-between snack may give you a boost and keep you well energized and focused.

However, Bellevoe said the company will exclusively have him in Peabody going forward. “It’s a long-term event for me,” he said.

Beacon Hill Roll Call By Bob Katzen THE HOUSE AND SENATE: Beacon Hill Roll Call records local senators’ and representatives’ votes on roll calls from earlier November sessions. There were no roll calls in the House or Senate last week. CORRECTION: Beacon Hill Roll Call made an error in a recent report. The first roll call vote below (CUT $550,000 FOR VARIOUS HEALTH-RELATED PROGRAMS) has the correct information and how your local legislators voted. CUT $550,000 FOR VARIOUS HEALTH-RELATED PROGRAMS (H 3800) House 125-28, Senate 35-2, overrode Gov. Charlie Baker’s reduction of $150,000 for programs for the promotion of health and disease prevention including prevention of breast cancer, hepatitis C and colorectal cancer; and screening for prostate cancer, diabetes, ovarian cancer, multiple sclerosis and osteoporosis. The $150,000 is not earmarked for any specific program. The governor also vetoed another $400,000 for specific programs including $100,000 for macular degeneration research into prevention and treatment of the disease; $25,000 for a diabetes prevention program; $25,000 for a program that provides peer support and education, home independence training and adaptive aids to people who are learning to cope and function safely and independently with the loss of sight; $100,000 for research to provide solid scientific evidence for the cranberry’s role in health and nutrition; and $100,000 for providing medically tailored meals to persons battling chronic illnesses and providing workforce training programs to people recovering from addiction. (A «Yes» vote is for funding the $550,000. A «No» vote is against funding it.) Rep. Theodore Speliotis Rep. Thomas Walsh Sen. Joan Lovely

Yes Yes Yes

PROHIBIT CONSIDERATION OF DETAINING ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS (H 4011) House 119-34, upheld the ruling of Acting House Speaker Patricia Haddad (D-Somerset) that prohibited consideration of an amendment that would authorize police officers, court officers and other law enforcement officers to detain a person under certain circumstances, at the request of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) on the grounds that there is probable cause that such person is a removable illegal alien. This would apply only in those cases where an individual has already been arrested and is about to be released from custody or is deemed to pose a threat to public safety because he or she has engaged in terrorism or has been convicted of a serious crime such as a felony, human trafficking or drug trafficking. The amendment also restricts the amount of time an individual can be detained to no more than 12 hours. The amendment was filed in response to a July decision by the state’s highest court which ruled that state local law enforcement officials do not have the authority to detain a person based solely on a request from ICE. Haddad ruled that the amendment is not properly before the House because it was not included in any earlier versions of the bill and introduction of this new subject-matter would expand upon the bill and violate House rules. Supporters of the ruling said the ruling is appropriate and follows the rules of the House. Opponents of the ruling said clearly the issue of arresting and holding illegal immigrants is related to a bill making changes in the criminal justice system. (A «Yes» vote is for the ruling. A «No» vote is against it.) Rep. Theodore Speliotis Rep. Thomas Walsh

Yes Yes

PROHIBIT MORE WIRETAPPING TO BE CONSIDERED (H 4011) House 123-34, upheld the ruling by Acting House Speaker Paul Donato (D-Medford) that prohibited consideration of an amendment that would allow law enforcement to request the authority from the courts to use wiretapping in cases of murder, manslaughter, rape, human trafficking, drug trafficking, the manufacturing or distribution of drugs, weapons traffick-

ing, witness intimidation and use or possession of explosives or chemical weapons. Current law, which has not changed since 1968, allows wiretapping to be used only when the crime is committed in connection with organized crime. Donato ruled that the amendment is not properly before the House because it was not included in any earlier versions of the bill and introduction of this new subject-matter would expand upon the bill and violate House rules. «Such new subject-matter in the form of an amendment from the floor of the House and thereby by-passing the deliberative steps required under our rules for the passage of a bill,» said the ruling. «That would violate the essence of the legislative process.» Supporters of the ruling said the ruling is right on target and follows the rules of the House. Opponents of the ruling said the issue of using wiretaps to help convict criminals is related to a bill making changes in the criminal justice system. (A «Yes» vote is for the ruling. A «No» vote is against it.) Rep. Theodore Speliotis Rep. Thomas Walsh

Yes Yes

EXPUNGE JUVENILE RECORDS (H 4011) A section of a proposed criminal justice bill would have allowed offenders who committed a crime before their 21st birthday to apply for expungement of certain records after 10 years for a felony or a misdemeanor if the individual has met all other qualifying criteria. The House 127-26, approved an amendment that reduced that waiting period to seven years for a felony and three years for a misdemeanor. Amendment supporters said research shows states with shorter expungement periods have reduced recidivism rates. They noted that the amendment will create earlier possibilities for these offenders to turn their lives around while still ensuring public safety. They argued that the amendment will reduce barriers to employment, housing and educational opportunities. Amendment opponents said the reduction is excessive and argued that the original ten-year waiting period for both felonies and misdemeanors is fair to offenders and also in the best interest of public safety. They noted that allowing an offender who is convicted of breaking and entering and larceny under $1,000 to apply to have his or her record expunged after three years is too lenient. (A «Yes» vote is for the reductions. A «No» vote is against the reductions.) Rep. Theodore Speliotis


Rep. Thomas Walsh


CUT ENTIRE $60,000 FOR TEACHING FINANCIAL LITERACY (H 3800) Senate 30-7, overrode Gov. Baker’s veto of the entire $60,000 for a program that mentors and teaches financial literacy to low-income women. (A «Yes» vote is for funding the $60,000. A «No» vote is against funding it.) Sen. Joan Lovely


CUT $122,274 FOR PRISONER’S LEGAL SERVICES (H 3800) Senate 30-6, overrode a reduction of $122,274 (from $1,609,465 to $1,487,191) in funding for Prisoners’ Legal Services, a program that provides legal representation for indigent and disadvantaged defendants. (A «Yes» vote is for funding the $122,274. A «No» vote is against funding it.) Sen. Joan Lovely


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 late-night 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 November 20-24, the House met for a total of 34 minutes and the Senate met for a total of 27 minutes.

Mon. November 20 House 11:02 a.m. to 11:17 a.m. Senate 11:09 a.m. to 11:21 a.m. Tues. November 21 No House session No Senate session Wed.

A Message to the Community for the Holiday Season from the Peabody Police Department A

s it’s the kickoff of the holiday season, Peabody Police Chief Thomas M. Griffin wishes everyone safe and Happy Holidays. As you may have already experienced, the roadways will become heavily travelled as

we begin holiday shopping and seek Thanksgiving destinations. In an effort to prevent any tragic consequences please exercise some commonsense safety precautions: 1. When driving do not use handheld devices. In addition

to that being illegal and carrying a costly fine, it creates a hazardous situation. Your reaction time will be slowed – putting yourself and others at risk. 2. Leave early. Give yourself ample time to get to your destination. Traffic will increase as we get closer to Christmas. Having given yourself enough time will result in a less stressful drive. 3. Do not drive while under the influence of alcohol or drugs. During this time of year, there are a number of holiday parties. Be smart: If you are go-

1. Who wrote, “I don’t mind eels / Except as meals / And the way they feel”? (Hint: initials ON.) 2. What 1950’s Biblical epic starred Charlton Heston? 3. On Dec. 3, 1775, what flag with stripes was raised on a naval vessel? 4. In car racing, what does F1 stand for? 5. When was the first known newspaper crossword puzzle published: 18th, 19th or 20th century? 6. On what day of the week does Advent start? 7. On Dec. 5, 1969, what computer “network of networks” established connection between four universities? 8. What is the word thespian derived from? 9. In 1969 what song from the movie “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance

Kid” won an Oscar? 10. What brand was advertised as “the first truly feminine cigarette”? 11. On Dec. 6, 1917, a ship explosion devastated what Nova Scotian city? 12. The Greek god of the wind, Aeolus, is the namesake of what instrument? 13. What profession wears a toque? 14. What does DNA stand for? 15. In the carol “Jingle Bells,” what is the horse’s name? 16. On Dec. 7, 1787, what state became the “First State of the Union”? 17. In December 2010, what Internet entrepreneur was Time’s Person of the Year? 18. What is Arabica? 19. Who first used an Advent calendar? 20. What Latin word means 10?


ing to drink, get a ride from a friend or call a cab or other car service. Officers will be out on patrol – getting arrested will ruin your holiday season and be very expensive. Causing an accident can have life-changing consequences. 4. While shopping do not leave packages in open view in your vehicle. Car breakins typically increase at area stores and malls during this busy shopping period. Also, carry your identification, credit cards and cash in a sealed front pocket; this will avoid a potential theft/pickpocket situation or inadvertently leaving a purse behind after placing it down while shopping. If shopping online bring your packages inside your home as soon as possible. 5. If you become aware of anything suspicious, do not hesitate to contact the Police Department; if it is an emergency call 911. We will continue to work closely with the North Shore Mall Management, Mall Security and our other law enforcement partners to provide a safe and welcoming environment for your shopping experience. Members of the Peabody Police Department appreciate the tremendous support we receive from our residents and the business community. Working together is essential to solving problems and preventing community concerns that disrupt the harmony of our residential neighborhoods and commercial areas. As a result of our close relationships, we have been able to solve problems quickly before they become major issues. We will work hard to continue these partnerships going forward. Please keep in mind all the members of public safety and the military who will be away from their families during the Holidays. Best wishes for the New Year.
