Town considering adoption of 311 service By Christopher Roberson


n an effort to streamline residents’ concerns and complaints, Lynnfield officials are pondering the implementation of the 311 Non-Emergency Hotline. Board of Selectmen Chairman Christopher Barrett said he has witnessed how well 311 has worked in Everett, where he is the vice principal of the city’s high school. “One of the main goals of the Board of Selectmen is to strengthen communication between residents and the Town of Lynnfield and to provide superior constituent services,” he said. “I think this service is a great next step to continuing our efforts to accomplish both of these important goals.” In addition to Everett, 311 is also used in Boston, Newton, Somerville, Springfield, Malden and Haverhill. Barrett said he asked interim Town Administrator Robert Curtin to investigate the

cost and process of bringing the service to Lynnfield. “I think this tool will help the Town of Lynnfield effectively serve all residents for many years to come,” said Barrett. “This service is also a great tool to help keep the Board of Selectmen and Town Hall fully accountable to the residents.” Barrett introduced the idea for 311 during the board’s meeting on Dec. 20, 2017. “This is not to be confused with 911,” he said during that meeting. Curtin said it would be beneficial to have an organized way receiving and responding to residents’ concerns. “I think it will be a valuable asset to have some sort of tracking system,” he said. In a follow up interview, John Tomasz, director of the Department of Public Works (DPW), said his only concern about 311 is having the funds and personnel available to resolve problems as they arise. “When people report

something, they expect it to be fixed immediately, which sometimes you can do, but sometimes you can’t,” he said. “It can be good and bad as far as the DPW is concerned.” Tomasz said a major benefit of 311 would be the ability to bundle related issues together and prioritize them on a spreadsheet. Tomasz said that when he was employed by the City of Salem, that municipality used the SeeClickFix service, which received 2,000 DPW-related issues over the course of three years. Police Chief David Breen did not wish to comment on how 311 would affect his department as the process is only in the preliminary stages. The service also extends far beyond the Bay State. In 1996, Baltimore became the first city to use 311. On a national level, 311 is currently used in Los Angeles, Washington, D.C., New York City and Albuquerque, N.M.

By Christopher Roberson


aving signed a six-page employment contrac t with the Board of Selectmen, Melrose Mayor Robert Dolan will officially assume his new title of town administrator on Feb. 5. “This is my honor, I’ll give you every ounce of my energy to make Lynnfield the best community in the Commonwealth,” said Dolan during the board’s Dec. 27 meeting. According to the terms stated in the contract, Dolan will receive an annual base salar y of $170,000. When compared to the annual base salary of former Town Administrator James Boudreau, this figure will save the town $17,536. In addition to a full benefits package, Dolan will also receive a monthly vehicle stipend of $325. The contract will remain in effect until Feb. 4, 2020. Board of Selectmen Chairman Christopher Barrett said

a number of elected officials from surrounding communities had reached out to congratulate the board on hiring Dolan. Selectman Philip Crawford said he was impressed with how well the process went considering that everything was accomplished in six weeks. “This had to be one of the quickest turnarounds in the history of job searches,” he said. Other Board of Selectmen news In other news, the board voted unanimously to accept the donation of a triangular piece of property on Parsons Avenue Extension. Attorney Jay Kimball said the land was owned by the Rumbolt family for a number of years. He said that after Julius and Lillian Rumbolt passed away, the property was inherited by their nephew Peter Rum-

MarketStreet GM recaps holiday season By Christopher Roberson


he fifth holiday shopping season has come and gone at MarketStreet Lynnfield. Looking back on the 30 frantic days between Black Friday and Christmas Eve, MarketStreet Lynnfield General Manager Christina Barrows said she and her staff wo r k e d t i re l e s s l y to e nsure that everything went smoothly. “Here at MarketStreet, we like to make sure our guests don’t merely survive the holiday season, but thrive in it,” she said. “We like to enhance that sense of nostalgia and make holiday shopping trips a fun ex-

perience for the whole family through our vibrant mix of stores and restaurants as well as our unforgettable festivities.” Barrows said the outdoor ice skating rink was a popular draw once again. “Our rink offers MarketStreet visitors the only outdoor skating experience of its kind in the area, with views of Reedy Meadow underneath a beautiful array of illuminated snowflake lights,” she said. Barrows also said the performance by the Boston Pops Brass Quintet was one of the many “fun new elements” added to the Holiday Stroll and Tree Lighting.

In addition, Barrows said she was impressed with the scores of customers who flocked to MarketStreet to visit the newer stores. “This season, customers crossed loved ones off their holiday shopping list by purchasing gifts at newcomers Apple and Amazon Books,” she said. “They also discovered some stores that are unique to MarketStreet such as Quinstance, The Grove, FatFace and Pia.” Barrows also said that MarketStreet’s customer volume appeared to keep pace with that of 2016. “While we don’t keep precise numbers, foot traffic seemed very strong and com-

parable to last year,” she said. E r in S a n d l e r, ow n e r o f Quinstance, said her store opened on Dec. 1, 2017, at 678 Market St. “This month was a big test for us,” she said, adding that Quinstance moved to Lynnfield from Burlington, and “We saw great foot traffic and a high level of excitement with customers this year.” Sandler said her inventory consists of fair-trade items that are made in the United States. “Customers increasingly seem to gravitate toward those items,” she said. “We find that our customers are more and more concerned with where some-

thing is made, what materials went into it, whether the people who made it were treated and paid fairly for their work and whether or not it’s sustainable for the environment. All of that held true this shopping season.” Sandler said it was the “little items designed to soothe and calm” that were the most popular throughout the 2017 shopping season. Such items included neck and eye pillows, candles, bath truffles and Pinch Me Dough, which is designed to alleviate stress. “People seem to be giving the gift of relaxation over items like jewelry or clothing,” said Sandler.

Question: With the reduced State And Local Tax (SALT ) Deduction for 2018 should I pay my 2018 Real Estate Tax in 2017? Answer: Internal Revenue Code Section (known as IRC) 164 governs taxes. My suggestion is as follows: First, review your 2016 tax return to confirm you itemize. Second, review your 2016 tax return to determine whether you paid Alternative Minimum Tax (known as AMT). If AMT is applicable, most likely paying your Real Estate Tax early will result in no tax savings. Third, make sure your city or town has completed the 2018 real estate assessments in 2017. If they have you may pursue the deduction. Lastly, if your mortgage lender is responsible for paying your real estate tax, communicate with them regarding your early payment. Question: I purchased my home in 2016 with a $900,000 mortgage, will I not be able to deduct all of my mortgage interest in 2018? Answer: Mortgages obtained prior to December 15, 2017, have a $1,000,000 limita-

Tom Terranova tion, therefore all of your mortgage interest pursuant to IRC 163 will be deductible. Question: I was divorced this past summer and will receive alimony; will the alimony be taxable in 2018? Answer: Any Divorce or Separation Instrument as defined by IRC 71(b)(2) executer after December 31, 2018, along with Modifications

Details of Dolan’s town admin. contract announced By Christopher Roberson


n Dec. 27, 2017, Robert Dolan signed three copies of a six-page contract with the Board of Selectmen guaranteeing that he will be Lynnfield’s next town administrator starting Feb. 5. The contract itself will remain in effect until Feb. 4, 2020, and states that Dolan will receive an annual base salary of $170,000, which includes a full benefits package. Dolan will be eligible for a salary increase on Feb. 4, 2019. He will receive a $150,000 Life Insurance policy with the premium being paid by the town. Dolan will also get a monthly vehicle stipend of $325.

In addition, Dolan will receive two weeks of vacation time between Feb. 5 and June 30 of this year. Starting July 1, he will receive four weeks of vacation time each fiscal year. A l t h o u g h t h e co n t ra c t does not give a set number of working hours per week, it does require that Dolan be available 24 hours a day seven days a week. In addition, only the Board of Selectmen has the authority to terminate Dolan. If the board were to take such action without finding Just Cause, Dolan would be entitled to six months of his annual salary in a lump sum plus an additional 30 days as required by the Town Char-

ter. If Just Cause were found, Dolan would only be compensated for the additional 30 days. In either case, the town would need to pay out those amounts “within 30 days of termination date.” The contract states that Just Cause is defined as “substantial misconduct detrimental to the town’s interest.” If the board decides not to renew the contract, Dolan would need to be notified in writing 180 days prior to the expiration date. If a shorter time frame is given, the contract will automatically be renewed for another year. Should Dolan decide to part ways with the town, he must provide the selectmen with a 45-day written notice.

Speaking about the recent inclement weather, Curtin said the usual capabilities of the Department of Public Works (DPW) were somewhat hampered as the salt supply had run out. “It was a difficult series of days for our DPW,” he said, adding that the town’s salt vendor was unable to make a timely delivery. However, Curtin said DPW Direc-

tor John Tomasz was able to contact a different vendor to replenish the salt supply. H e a l s o a d d re s s e d t h e phone calls that Town Hall received from residents saying that their roads were not cleared down to bare pavement. Curtin said that if the plows did clear the streets to bare pavement, they would also clear away the salt, thus heightening the risk for black ice.

After winning its first five games, the Pioneers played perhaps their worst game of the season, according to Coach Jon Gardner, and as a result they were narrowly defeated by Winthrop, 2-1 in the second game of the annual Kas-

abuski Christmas Tournament in Saugus. “We had our worst game of the year against Winthrop, and were still in a 1-1 game with three minutes left,” said Gardner. “But give Winthrop credit. They were motivated after we beat them last year in the postseason, and were then whacked by North Reading in the first game of the Kasabuski Tournament. They wanted this one.”

The Vikings scored the gamewinner on a breakaway with a minute remaining on the clock. Joey Mack tied up the contest for the locals on a power play goal with three minutes to go assisted by George Deroche. But once again, goalie Aidan Kelly was the story of the game. Winthrop controlled the play throughout, while also winning the shots battle, 25-15. “Kelly definitely kept us in this game,” said Gardner. “That was our second game in 18 hours, and it was also Christmas break. You never know what they might give up under those circumstances, but we are not making any

excuses. Winthrop just played better than us,” added the veteran coach. “We can beat anybody on our schedule, but by the same token we can lose to anybody on our schedule. We just have to be ready to play every game.” The Pioneers did get back on the winning side of the scoreboard last Saturday after beating North Reading by the narrowest of margins, 1-0. The Hornets, in fact, outshot the locals, 20-14. “Most of our chances were from the periphery, and even though he recorded the shutout [Kelly] was fighting the puck in this game,” said Gard-

ner. “He’s ordinarily technically sound, but the defense was able to help him out by clearing any rebounds out of the zone.” The Lynnfield boys ended up scoring the winning goal five minutes into the game. Will Garofoli lit the lamp set up by Chris Flannery and Kyle Nekoroski. The Pioneers are now 6-1 overall, and 3-0 in the Cape Ann League. They will now host Peabody at the Peabody rink on Saturday, Jan. 6, starting at noon. Newburyport then comes to Peabody for a big CAL clash with Lynnfield Wednesday, Jan. 10, starting at 8:15 p.m.

Wrestlers continue to show improvement through adversity Overcoming illnesses, the Pioneers finish in the top 10 at annual Pentucket Tournament

By Joe Mitchell


efore the Lynnfield-North Reading co-op wrestling squad got swept by its four formidable foes in the Beverly quad meet on Dec. 30, they participated in the Pentucket Tournament, placing 10 th overall out of 19 teams, with 71 points. Last year the Pioneers finished 13th with 48 points, and so in one calendar year there was significant improvement. Individually, first-year senior Josh Bedell (126 pounds) took home his first wrestling medal with a fourth-place finish. Kev-

in Farrelly (195 pounds) also came in fourth for the second year in a row. Sean McCullough (182 pounds) went to the finals for the second consecutive tournament, and ended up finishing second last week. “We only took eight wrestlers to this tournament, due to illness and personal obligations, but they all still won matches to earn team points,” said head coach Craig Stone. “I was impressed we were able to improve on last year’s performance. This should go a long way toward building the confidence necessary for continued success.”

Stuart Glover (120 pounds) was 2-2 in Pentucket. Bedell came through with four wins to get his ribbon. Dylan Reardon (145 pounds) was 3-2. Andrew DiPietro (152 pounds) ended up 1-2. Nik Marotta (160 pounds) did the same. Anthony Wilkinson (170 pounds) split his four matches down the middle. McCullough was 2-1, and Farrelly, 2-2, to wrap things up in Pentucket. Last Saturday in Beverly, the shorthanded Pioneers lost to North Andover (57-18), Arlington (56-24), Greater Lawrence (45-33) and the host team Panthers (54-30). They are now

3-8-1 in the regular season dual matches. The North Andover Scarlet Knights returned five wrestlers, who placed in last year’s state meet, and as a result Lynnfield only won three matches. Christian Real-Costa (106 pounds, 1:29, win by fall), McCullough (3:55, win by fall) and Farrelly (1:44, win by fall) recorded the victories for the locals. Just like the Scarlet Knights, Arlington also has five grapplers in this year’s starting lineup who distinguished themselves in last year’s state meet, but DiPietro (2:20, win by fall),

Wilkinson (0:51), McCullough (win by forfeit) and Real-Costa (1:13, win by fall) were still able to record triumphs. Overall in this meet, it was not all that bad. Real-Costa, DiPietro, McCullough and Farrelly were credited with three out of four wins. “We were not even close to full strength for this quad meet last Saturday,” said Stone. “We had to forfeit at least four weight classes that accounted for 24 points. But overall, we still wrestled tough on the mat and could have won at least two of the matches if we’d have had a full lineup.”

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.

Savvy Senior by Jim Miller

Help With Home-Care Bills Dear Savvy Senior, Do you know of any resources that can help with my mother’s home-care bills? Mom is recovering from a stroke and needs inhome care, but I understand Medicare doesn’t cover it, and she doesn’t have long-term care insurance. Stressed-Out Daughter Dear Stressed-Out, Depending on your mom’s circumstances, there are a number of government and not-for-profit programs that can that either subsidize or pay for your mom’s home care or offer aid in other ways. Here’s where to look for help. Medicare Coverage If your mom is recovering from a stroke, the first thing you need to know is that Medicare does cover a variety of in-home health care services. To be eligible your mom must be “homebound,” and her doctor will need to approve a “plan of care” confirming that she needs skilled-nursing care or skilled-therapy services from a physical or speech therapist. Her doctor can also request the services of an occupational therapist and a non-medical home aide to assist with activities of daily living like bathing, dressing and using the bathroom. But, be aware that Medicare will not pay for non-medical home aide services alone, if your mom does not need skillednursing or skilled-therapy services too. Homemaker services, such as shopping, meal preparation and cleaning are not covered either. For more information on how this works, call 1-800-MEDICARE or see Medicaid Options If you mom’s income is low enough, she may qualify for Medicaid, which offers different programs that can pay for non-medical home care, home health care and other in-home support services. These programs, often referred to as Home and Community Based Services, are state-specific and their eligibility and benefits will vary. To find out if your mom is eligible, contact her state Medicaid agency (see State Programs If your mom doesn’t qualify for the Medicare or Medicaid options, check to see if her state offers any state-funded homecare programs. These programs may provide caregivers or vouchers that can help pay for care. To find out about these services, call the Area Agency on Aging near your mom – see or call 800-677-1116 for contact information. Also investigate PACE, which stands for “Programs of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly.” PACE, which is currently available in 31 states – though not in every community – provides inhome care, including help with activities of daily living, such as meals, dental and medical care, prescriptions, and chaperoned transportation, among other benefits. Medicaid-eligible patients get PACE for free, but if your mom is not eligible for Medicaid, she may be charged a monthly premium, though far less than she would pay a private service. To see if PACE is available in your mom’s area, see Veterans Benefits If your mom is a veteran, or a surviving spouse of a veteran, the VA also offers some benefits that can help pay her inhome care. One is “Aid and Attendance or Housebound Allowances,” which are supplemental monthly benefits for veterans already receiving a monthly VA pension and requiring healthcare. Veterans and surviving spouses qualify if they have certain disabilities or need help with activities such as dressing, bathing, and feeding, among other criteria. Go to for more information. Another option is the “Veteran-Directed Care” program. This program, available through VA medical centers in 38 states, as well as in Washington, D.C., and Puerto Rico, provides as much as $2,000 a month that can be used to pay a professional or family member or friend for home care. The program is open to any veteran who meets the criteria, including requiring help with three or more activities of daily living. Visit the “Home and Community Based Services” section at for information. To look for additional programs in your area that can help pay your mom’s home care, go to and use their Eldercare Financial Assistance Locator tool. Send your senior questions to: Savvy Senior, P.O.
