Peabody resident takes part in Holiday Inspiration Video By Christopher Roberson


eabody resident Lisa Pelrine, the admissions director at the Chapel HillChauncy Hall (CH-CH) School in Waltham, recently participated in the school’s Holiday Inspiration Video to honor the accomplishments of student Emma Maniscalco. The video, which is posted on the school’s Facebook page and YouTube channel, also features a number of other students and teachers thanking each other for making a substantial difference in their lives. Pelrine said she remembered how shy Maniscalco was during her student interview as an eighth grade student visiting CH-CH. “She was definitely an introvert,” said Pelrine. However, Maniscalco is now half way through her junior year and much has changed. “This didn’t happen overnight, it’s definitely a progression,” said Pelrine. Pelrine said Maniscalco is a student tour guide and works at the school’s summer camp. “She’s here every day during her summer vacation,” said Pelrine. “She’s a leader in so many facets.” With 180 students enrolled at the college preparatory boarding school, Pel-

rine said CH-CH is very much a “closeknit community.” The video itself was put together by Matthew Soule, CH-CH’s assistant director of Marketing and Communications. “The idea behind this video is that we wanted to make sure that our students and teachers truly understood the impact they’ve made on each other’s lives,” he said. “To create the video, CH-CH teachers and students were given the opportunity to record a message on an iPad to someone within our school community. That message was then gift wrapped and surprise delivered to the recipient, then we filmed their reaction.” Soule said that thus far, the video has been viewed 13,000 times on Facebook. “We’ve been humbled by the response we received from posting the video online,” he said. “It is great to see the positivity from this project reach far beyond our campus in Waltham. We have a really caring group of teachers and students at CH-CH, and we will definitely continue this project to make it easy for them to share these messages of gratitude.”

City officials share goals for 2018 By Christopher Roberson


ith the dawn of a New Year, members of the School Committee and City Council outlined some of their latest plans for Peabody.

to all students, teachers, parents and taxpayers.” Amico also said that he is looking forward to what the future will hold when Assistant Superintendent of Schools Cara Murtagh takes the reins as superintendent on July 1. “I’m excited to support our new superintendent, Ms. Murtagh, with her vision of putting students first,” he said.

Thomas Rossignoll Councilllor-at-Large

Councillor-at-Large-Elect Thomas Rossignoll said he intends to “be a good listener and advocate for the citizens.” In doing so, he plans to keep a watchful eye on real estate developer Carl Crupi as the Birchwood Subdivision project moves forward. Rossignoll said another goal for the New Year will be to assist in the ongoing effort to make downtown Peabody“more vibrant.” Rossignoll also said funding for education needs to be a top priority, his having served on the School Committee for the past eight years.

Ryan Melville Councillor-at-Large

Councillor-at-Large-Elect Ryan Melville said his objective is to be “extremely responsive to constituency requests and issues.” “I also would like to start the discussion on some infrastructure issues I heard about on the campaign trail,” he said. “I hope to hit the ground running as a firsttime elected official.”

School Committee Member Joseph Amico said his primary goal is to actively participate in crafting the school budget for fiscal year 2019. He said it needs to be done in a way that“takes the needs of our students, teachers, parents and taxpayers into consideration.” Amico said it is too soon to identify any new line items. “Because the cost of public education is expensive, I would like to review our upcoming budget further before I can finalize goals or a wish list,” said Amico. “With that said, the residents of Peabody deserve the best possible school system at a value that is fair

School Committee Member Beverley Griffin Dunne said her goals for the New Year include developing a redistricting plan for the city’s eight elementary schools, raising the state’s designation from Level 3 to Level 1 at Peabody Veterans Memorial High School and enhancing the role of the Student Advisory Board. “I also want to work toward an increased partnership with Essex Technical High School, and I want to bring new ideas and information to the School Committee from the Massachusetts Association of School Committees through my chairmanship of Division 1,” she said.

Peabody Rotary’s 14th Annual Taste of the North Shore seeking restaurants and sponsors


he Peabody Rotary Club will be holding its signature event, the 14th Annual Taste of the North Shore, on Tuesday, March 20 from 6-9 p.m. This popular event is now being held at the DoubleTree Hilton Hotel in Danvers (formerly the Ferncroft), as additional space is needed to accommodate the growing list of restaurants taking part and the number of people attending. Twenty-five of the area’s most popular restaurants will serve their tastiest dishes, from main courses to sides to desserts. In addition to the delicious food and great entertainment, a highlight of the evening will be the drawing of a $10,000 grand prize! Raffle tickets are $100 each and include two admissions to the

Taste. Odds are in your favor, as only 300 raffle tickets will be sold. The winner does not need to be present. Non-raffle admission is $40 per person. There will also be mystery bags for sale and a silent auction with many coveted items: vacations, sports memorabilia, gift certificates, and more. Also available will be the ever-popular raffles to “stock your cellar” of wine and beer, featuring dozens of bottles and accessories! As the biggest fundraiser of the year, the Taste of the North Shore raises thousands of dollars to fund the many important community projects Peabody Rotary supports for those in need. These include scholarships, feeding the homeless, revitaliz-

ing Peabody playgrounds, and countless donations to local charities. Secure a place at the table as a corporate or individual sponsor by February 28, with levels ranging from $250 to $1,000 – and all come with great “perks”! If you are interested in being a food vendor, sponsor or attendee, or would like to donate items or gift certificates for the auction, please contact the event co-chairs: Stephanie Johnson at or Laura MacNeil at Tickets may be purchased from Peabody Rotary members. Visit www.rotarypeabody. org for more information. We hope to see you on March 20!

Macy’s reports perfume theft of $5K By Christopher Roberson


t approximately 9:10 p.m. on Dec. 28, 2017, Peabody Police responded to Macy’s at the North Shore Mall after receiving a call from the store’s security team saying a theft had occurred. Police Capt. Dennis Bonaiuto said the female suspect went behind the counter and took “30-35”bottles of Chanel Women’s Fragrance which totaled approximately $5,000. Bonaiuto said the suspect left the store before security arrived. According to the police log, the suspect is described as a “heavyset black skinned female wearing a red and black colored track suit.” He said the investigation remains ongoing, as the suspect may have been involved in a similar incident earlier that day at the Macy’s at the Square One Mall in Saugus.

North Shore Mother Visiting Program news T

he North Shore Mother Visiting Program (NS MVP) is pleased to announce that it is now accepting referrals for one-time home visits to caregivers who have just welcomed a new infant to the home. NS MVP is also excited to announce that with generous support from Lahey Hospital Corporation (Lahey) in the amount of $6,200, it has been able to expand outreach efforts to pediatricians, obstetric providers, mental health practitioners, and childcare agencies. NS MVP has partnered with Lahey’s Parent Education Department to introduce the

program to the many mother groups hosted at Beverly Hospital and Addison Gilbert. The additional financial support from Lahey has also allowed NS MVP to purchase supplies for home visits and create a database that will allow the Public Health Nurses to track trends and improve visits during the one-year pilot project. Mothers or other caregivers with new infants in the home from the communities of Gloucester, Newburyport, Beverly, Peabody and Hamilton may call their local Health Department to set up a free, one-time visit by a Pub-

lic Health Nurse. The nurse will visit a mother or other caregiver, ideally within 12 weeks (but up to one year) of giving birth or adopting a baby, regardless of the mother/caregiver’s age, insurance, income or number of children. The visit will last approximately an hour and a half and will take place in the mother/caregiver’s home or at a mutually agreed on location. All services provided by the nurse will be free and confidential. Once registered for a home visit, a new mom/caregiver or soon-to-be-mom/caregiver may enroll at Baby Box Uni-

versity ( A short video with several follow-up questions must be completed in order to receive a free Baby Box. Baby Boxes are based on the Finnish tradition of providing a safe sleep space for infants. A nurse will bring a Baby Box filled with baby supplies and community resources to the home visit.

Tanner boys rout Essex Tech, improve to 2-2 By Greg Phipps


oming off a tough overtime loss at Masconomet two days earlier, the Peabody High School boys’ basketball team regrouped after a slow start to roll to a convincing 6937 nonleague win over the Essex Tech Hawks last Friday afternoon at the PHS Gym. Within seconds of pulling off a win at Masco last Wednesday, the Tanners fell victim to a game-tying three-pointer by Masco’s Will Schena in the final seconds of regulation. The host Chieftains would go on to take that contest 70-64 in OT. As a result, the Tanners were looking to shake off the sting of that defeat and turn things around against Essex on their home court last Friday. Peabody senior guard Jake Gustin produced a solid effort with a team-high 18 points, followed by Mike Tansey’s 13. Marcus Barker and Jake Irvine chipped in with nine points each. The Tanners looked rusty

itors 23-3 in the third quarter, the Tanners pretty much put the contest in the books with a commanding 55-24 lead entering the final eight minutes. “The first half was a little bit sloppy for both teams. I felt we played much better in the third quarter. We didn’t turn the ball over as much in the second half,” said Peabody head coach Thad Broughton, whose team improved to 2-2 on the early season. Broughton also praised the efforts of Gustin: “Jake was phenomenal today. He’s our defensive catalyst and our quarterback offensively. He hit some big shots and really took the ball to the hoop. It was an outstanding effort by him.” Just a little over a week earlier, Broughton saw his team utilize a fierce pressure de-

fense to battle back from a double-digit deficit in the final quarter to nearly overtake a talented Malden squad. He said after last Friday’s win that defense is Peabody’s linchpin and will be its most important asset moving forward. “Defense is our calling card; we have to defend in order to stay in games,” Broughton pointed out. “Our offense comes and goes but our defense is our mainstay.” The Tanners hosted Revere on Wednesday [after press deadline] and play at Everett this Friday. In the junior varsity game against Essex Tech, the Tanner JVs rolled to a 64-31 victory behind 19 points from Chioke Onwuogu, 11 from Chris Perez and six each from JoJo Kashila and Krisli Miraka.

Peabody girls’ hockey team enters New Year on winning note

Freshman Jennifer Flynn scored her first varsity goal last Saturday at Quincy.

By Greg Phipps


eabody girls’ hockey head coach Michelle Roach said two weeks ago that her team’s early-season objective was to enter the New Year with an above-.500 record. That goal was realized last Saturday, as the Tanners coasted to a 10-2 win at Quincy/North Quincy. I t w a s Pe a b o d y ’s s e c ond-straight triumph over Quincy. Just over a week earlier, the Tanners defeated Quincy at home by a 7-2 margin. Last Saturday’s victory upped Peabody’s record to 3-1-1 entering this week’s action. The Tanners played against Masconomet on Wednesday [after press deadline] and travel to Endicott College to take on Beverly this Saturday (scheduled 5:40 p.m. start). In last Saturday’s win, Sammie Mirasolo, who cashed in three goals and three assists in the first game against Quincy, collected a goal and an assist, as did her sister Cassie Mirasolo. Goalie Jeny Collins earned her second career vic-

tory, and Kathryn DiGiulio had a four-point game with two scores and two helpers. Also contributing with two goals each were Elise Staunton (her

Beacon Hill Roll Call By Bob Katzen

THE HOUSE AND SENATE: There were no roll calls in the House and Senate last week. This week, Beacon Hill Roll Call reports on how often local representatives voted with their party leadership. 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 125 Democrats were compared to House Speaker Robert DeLeo (D-Winthrop). Beacon Hill Roll Call uses 289 votes from the 2017 House session as the basis for this report. This includes all roll calls that were not quorum calls or votes on local issues. A total of 69 (55.2 percent) of the 125 Democrats voted with DeLeo 100 percent of the time. That means that more than half of the Democrats always voted with DeLeo. The Democratic representatives who voted the lowest percentage of times with DeLeo are Reps. Colleen Garry (D-Dracut) and James Dwyer (D-Woburn). Garry voted with DeLeo 89 percent of the time and Dwyer voted with DeLeo 89.6 percent of the time. No Democrat voted with DeLeo less than 89 percent of the time. None of the 34 GOP members voted with Jones 100 percent of the time. The GOP representative who voted with Jones the most times was Rep. Jay Barrows (R-Mansfield) who voted with him 98.9 percent of the time. The representative who voted with Jones the lowest percentage of times was Rep. Timothy Whelan (R-Brewster) who voted with Jones only 76.8 percent of the time. R e p. S u s a n n a h W h i p p s ( U n e n rolled-Athol) is the only unenrolled or independent member of the House follow-

ing her switch from the Republican party in August. At that time, she said, “Serving as state representative while not affiliating with either major political party will allow me to more effectively utilize the relationships I have developed with the members and leadership on both sides of the aisle and will allow me to better serve all of the people of my district, without the obligation of towing any particular party line.” PERCENTAGE OF TIMES REPRESENTATIVES VOTED WITH THEIR PARTY’S LEADERSHIP IN 2017 The percentage next to the representative’s name represents the percentage of times the representative supported his or her party’s leadership. The number in parentheses represents the number of times the representative opposed his or her party’s leadership. Some representatives voted on all 289 roll call votes. Others missed one or more of the 289 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. Theodore Speliotis 100 percent (0) Rep. Thomas Walsh 99.3 percent (2) 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 December 25-29, the House and Senate both met for a total of four hours and 43 minutes.

Mon. December 25 No House session No Senate session Tues. December 26 House 11:04 a.m. to 11:54 a.m. Senate 11:08 a.m. to 12:05 p.m. Wed. December 27 No House session No Senate session Thurs.

VIDEO | FROM PAGE 1 Head of School Dr. Lance Conrad said “empathy and kindness” are woven into the fabric of CH-CH. “Students and educators alike build relational trust through authentic interactions and reactions in a wide range of teachable moments,” he said. “Strength in relationships is a cornerstone of our work and mis-

sion as an independent college prep school.” Conrad said a similar project was done last year, which caught the attention of WBZTV. Therefore, he and his colleagues wanted the keep the ball rolling this year. “In this year’s Holiday Inspiration Video, we took a slightly different spin but nonetheless moving as we surprised students, teachers and staff

with video messages from fellow community members,” he said. “These messages are expressions of inspiration and impact that others have on our lives. The moral of the story here is that we need to pause from time-to-time to express our appreciation for those around us who impact our lives in positive ways. This, in fact, is the greatest present one human can give another.”

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 in-home 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 skilled-nursing 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 home-care 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 in-home 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 in-home 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.

ton, MA; and 23 beloved great and greatgreat nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her niece Arlyn Schneider and nephew Stephen Baker, and her brotherin-law, Max Baker.

His love of family and friends extended outwards from his home in South Boston in all directions: to his sister, Dorothy, and brother-in-law, Ronald, in Montreal, his cousins Connie, Linda and Van in Boston, the Merty family in Worcester, his childhood friends Fred, Jack, Lon and Warren, his nephew Aaron in Brooklyn, his niece Zanna, her husband Pete and their twin boys Jack and Niko in Australia, and dozens of cousins in Albania.

Al’s family is grateful to the staff at Academy Manor, and to his good friend George, for their care and support. Private services.
