Selectmen indefinitely postpone King Rail project By Christopher Roberson


iven the new $2.5 million cost of constructing a clubhouse and storage building at the King Rail Reserve Golf Course, the Board of Selectmen recently voted to indefinitely postpone the project. “I’m not comfortable with it at this point,” said Vice Chairman Richard Dalton during the board’s Oct. 2 meeting, adding that those funds are currently needed elsewhere – “The best course of action is to indefinitely postpone.” Dalton was perturbed that the board did not receive the new cost estimate until Sept. 29. “We’re sharing this information at the 11th hour,” he said. Selectman Philip Crawford said it would not make sense to present the project at the Oct. 16 Special Town Meeting, as construction is still more than one year away. “None of this is going to get done until late next fall,” he said. “We don’t have the funds to get this whole project done.” Therefore, Crawford said, it might be more realistic to put the King Rail project on the April 2018 Town Meeting Warrant. Prior to the vote for indefinite postponement, John Savasta of CSS Architects said the cost of the project had increased by $400,000 to compensate for the testing, removal and replacement of soil. “The soil couldn’t

really support anything,” he said, referring to the test results. Although the abutters were initially anxious about the project, Savasta assured the board that those worries have been quelled. Therefore, he said, the project could be sent out to bid by the spring of 2018. “We felt it would bring a lot of value to the site,” said Savasta, adding that his company has been working on the project design for the past 16 months and “It’s going to be a worthwhile investment.” Don Lyons, a PGA professional at King Rail, urged the board to take action sooner rather than later. “We’re going to lose business,” he said, adding that he has continued to tell patrons that improvements are coming; yet nothing is happening and “It hasn’t gotten any better.” Chairman Christopher Barrett asked if it would be worthwhile to appeal the Order of Conditions that the Conservation Commission issued for the project in an effort to defray the cost. However, Town Administrator James Boudreau advised the board against taking such action, as it could possibly harm its relationship with the commission. He also said it would not be worth the effort to seek state funding at this time.

them to retreat. During the nine-day withdrawal, some 338,226 shivering troops were rescued by the Royal Navy and the “little ships of Dunkirk, a flotilla of hundreds of merchant marine boats, fishing boats, pleasure craft, yachts, and lifeboats called into service from Britain.” Winston Churchill Prime Minister Winston Churchill described the event as a “miracle of deliverance” in his June 4, 1940, speech to the British House of Commons. He pledged, “We shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds,

we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills. We shall never surrender!” Churchill then rejoined, “We must be very careful not to assign to this deliverance the attributes of a victory. Wars are not won by evacuations.” Letters to Lynnfield Days of “blood, sweat, and tears” lay ahead for Britain. Observing the resolve of the Brits in these circumstances was Lynnfield businessman John Harriss (1896-1986), who lived outside of London with his wife and five children from 1939-1945. Harris wrote many letters home to be published in the Lynnfield Village Press, often mentioning the legacy of Dunkirk: 30 September, 1942

Dunkirk gave power to the British. If a nation needed a catastrophe to awaken it from a slumber, Britain did – and got it. We saw them on the station platforms and on the trains, dirty men with dirty uniforms, tired and weary, but not frightened. Most of them never had a chance to fight, but all of them had taken their place calmly on the Dunkirk beaches and awaited their turn for the boats. They knew now that they could stand up to anything Fritz had to offer but they also knew that they needed much equipment and needed it quickly. On the heels of Dunkirk came the fear of invasion, the forming of the Home Guard, the long cold nights on duty

Planning Board hears proposal for zoning recodification By Christopher Roberson


fter eight months, five drafts and 10 sections, Attorney Mark Bobrowski presented his recommended changes to the town’s zoning bylaw. During his Sept. 27 presentation to the Planning Board, Bobrowski said he quickly discovered that Lynnfield’s bylaw did not have a Table of Uses. Therefore, that needs to be changed, as it is something that has become the norm in many communities throughout the state. “It’s shocking sometimes, to see what you’ve been living with,” he said. Bobrowski referred to the opening section, Purpose and Authority, as the “handshake of the bylaw.” His suggested change is to state that a zoning injury must be proven in order to show that the value of a home has diminished. In the next section, dealing with Districts, Bobrowski said he added a provision for parcels that are divided by the town line; he did not suggest any other substantial changes to that part of the bylaw. “I didn’t add any districts,” he said. The third section addresses Use Regulations. “Everybody screws those up,” said Bobrowski. One of his recommended changes is to have the Zoning Board of Appeals (ZBA), the Planning Board and the Board of Selectmen as granting boards. Although the lot size requirements can remain the same, Bobrowski suggested removing the list of exceptions for lot sizes to prevent any future confusion. “It opens up so many cans of worms in cities and towns,” he said. “It’s better to stay

with the state law.” R e g a rd i n g t h e s e c t i o n dealing with Non-Conforming Uses and Struc tures, Bobrowski said a non-conforming structure can be changed to a conforming s t r u c t u re w i t h a S p e c i a l Permit. He said an example would be converting a coffee shop into a real estate office. For single-family homes, Bobrowski said that even if a lot is too small, a building permit should still be granted provided there is complete conformity in all other aspects of the project. “That should decrease the work of the ZBA substantially,” he said. “Right now, you’re holding hearings on all of these – what you have now is so behind the times.” In addition, Bobrowski said signs that exceed the size stated in the current bylaw should be allowable with a

Speaking about the Overlay District section, Bobrowski said that part of the bylaw focuses on Lynnfield’s flood plain and wetland b u f fe r zo n e s a n d m a k e s reference to Chapter 40R, which “encourages communities to create dense residential or mixed-use smart growth zoning districts,” according to the state’s website.

Pioneers dispatch Winthrop with ease to remain undefeated after four games By Joe Mitchell


n the last two weeks, the Lynnfield High School football team has outscored its opponents, 74-6 to easily run its record to 4-0 in the Cape Ann League. Winthrop, who’s definitely in the rebuilding mode, was their latest victim last Friday night to the tune of 47-6. But coach Neal Weidman understands it will only get tougher going forward starting with Ipswich on the road Friday night, Oct. 6, beginning at 7 p.m. The Pioneers were able to take advantage of the inexperience on the Viking sidelines, putting up points almost at will in the beginning. They had the ball on six separate occasions throughout the first half, and ended up needing only to call 14 plays to score a touchdown each time. As a result of the domination, Weidman was able to empty his bench to get the JV players some varsity experience. Nick Kinnon began the offensive surge with an electrifying 59-yard run to paydirt, but ironically the Vikings answered that score with a touchdown of their own to trim the deficit to one, 7-6. However, that was the last time they were able to get that

close to the Pioneers. Senior captain Anthony Murphy then started the parade of Lynnfield touchdowns from two yards out. Quarterback Matt Mortellite hooked up with Kinnon on an option play, and after a brief scare when the Lynnfield wide receiver dropped the ball at the 10 he was able to put the fears to rest by recovering the fumble and scooting home for six. Lynnfield was ahead, 20-6 at that point, and there was still three minutes left in the first quarter. Sophomore John Lee then got his chance to play in a var-

sity game, and he took advantage of the opportunity with a touchdown run. Tyler Murphy was credited with the team’s fifth score from 30 yards out. It was time for more Lynnfield understudies to play in a varsity game. Mortellite came out in favor of junior Brett Cohee, who took the snap from the 10 and promptly jaunted to the end zone for six more points. Cohee tacked on another touchdown for his portfolio in the third quarter with a long distance 85-yard score.


A helicopter dropped hundreds of golf balls onto the field at halftime, the culmination of a successful fundraising effort for the LHS Pioneers’ football program. Each player was required to sell at least 25 raffle tickets, and a golf ball was dropped for each ticket sold. The five balls which landed closest to a target were awarded a cash prize.

Pioneers stage dramatic comeback to tie first place Masco Girls’ soccer team remains in contention for second with Newburyport, North Reading By Joe Mitchell


he Lynnfield High School girls’ soccer team probably picked up its most important point of the season Monday afternoon, Oct. 2, when they tied first place Masco, 2-2. It followed a week where they won twice: against Pentucket in a blowout (5-1, Sept. 26) and Georgetown (3-0, Sept. 28). “That was a great team effort for us on Monday. We came back from a 2-0 deficit to tie Masco,” said coach Mark Vermont. “It was a game that featured two good teams, and it lived up to its billing.” The Pioneers now own a 5-21 record, very much in a dog-

fight for second place in the Kinney Division with Newburyport and North Reading behind the first place Chieftains. Masco scored 27 minutes into the game, and again with six minutes left in the first half to go up 2-0. But then the Lynnfield girls cut the deficit in half with a minute to go before halftime on a goal by Christina Benvenuto on a solo effort. Giving up goals early or late in a half are always momentum builders or killers, depending on your perspective, but in Lynnfield’s case they didn’t waste the opportunity. They continued to apply the pressure at the start of the second half, and eventually netted the equalizer

just three minutes into the last half off of a corner from Kate Mitchell to Liz Shaievitz, who put it home on a header. “Goals scored in the last five minutes of each half are always critical points in any game. They inevitably change momentum,” said Vermont. Mackenzie O’Neill made nine saves in net to certainly help earn that valuable point for her teammates. “It was a back-and-forth game after we scored the tying goal, but our defense really stepped it up to slow down the Masco offense. The few opportunities they had to score, O’Neill was right there to make the big stop,” said Vermont.

The game against Pentucket was played on the Sachems’ grassy surface, which definitely changes the local team’s style of play that is used to playing on field turf, which makes for a quicker game. But after making early adjustments, it ended up having little effect on them. They had a 2-0 lead at halftime on goals by junior Emma Montanile and Sydney Santosuosso. Shaievitz netted two second half goals after the Sachems trimmed the deficit to two, following Mitchell’s tally. O’Neill only had to make four saves to secure another win. Shaievitz then ignited the offense two minutes into the

Georgetown game from Anna Ferrante, just two minutes into that game. “That’s been the focus of ours – to score early going into every game this year – and we did a better job of it in this game,” said Vermont. Ferrante followed up her assist with a solo effort marker to give her teammates a 2-0 lead at halftime. Shaievitz closed out the offense in the second half with a goal from Mitchell. O’Neill made another four saves to help secure the victory. The Pioneers take on Amesbury on Oct. 4 (after press deadline) before they head to Ipswich to take on the Tigers on Friday afternoon.

Make Fall Comfort Foods with More Nutrition and Fewer Calories One-Pot Meal

McKinnon’s Own – 16+ Varieties Marinated Or Seasoned

Toss-together meal By Anna Tourkakis, Nutritionist


omforting Fall dishes like stews, soups, chilies and casseroles can be high in fat and calories and not waist friendly. Luckily, by a slight tweaking of ingredients can change all that. Here I have a guide to make heart warming delicious dishes that help weight management, provide healthful benefits and are simple to cook up. Begin your meal creation with a plan that includes not more than 1/3 poultry, fish, red meat and low fat dairy. The other 2/3 of your meal should be whole grains, vegetables, fruit, beans and other plant food. The combination of plant foods provides plenty of health promoting phytochemicals and fewer calories to your fall comfort dishes. Here are 4 steps to a delicious slimming and healthful fall repast. 1. Choose Lean Protein Sources Some of the most healthful protein sources are beans, peas, and lentils. These low cost legumes provide fiber, folate, potassium, magnesium and iron. As they are a plant food, they contain phytochemicals. • Choose canned or dry and cook them yourself • Use beans in chilis • Substitute lentils for

HOCKEY | FROM PAGE 10 the season. But we still have to learn to put the ball in the net on a consistent basis.” Against the Indians earlier this week, they had little difficulty scoring frequently. They were able to notch three goals in each half to account for the final score. Lily Rothwell wasted little time igniting the surge with a pretty goal that she practically orchestrated all by herself after picking up the ball on the opening face-off, and racing 50-yards into the Amesbury zone, before blasting it home from close range.

ground beef in pasta dishes or stuffed peppers. • Choose skinless poultry, shrimp, fish and low fat cottage cheese for animal sources avoid extra calories and saturated fats. 2. Get your veggies Seasonal fall vegetables at peak flavor include Swiss chard, winter, squashes, turnip, sweet potatoes, broccoli, Brussels sprouts and mushrooms. Mix several types of your favorite vegetables together for stews or stir-fries. Frozen vegetables are always handy and ready to be used as needed. 3. Add Whole Grains There are many common whole grains to choose, such as, whole-wheat pasta, brown rice and barley. Or look for varieties like quinoa, wheat berries and farro. Whole grains offer cancerfighting vitamins minerals, fi-

ber, antioxidant, and phytochemical. Rice, small pasta shapes, barley and other small whole grains cook up nicely in a stew or skillet dish. Just add some extra liquid in the form of water, broth, and tomato sauce or vegetable juice. Depending on your recipe, some grains like larger noodles and wheat berries will need precooking. Add them to your one pot meal at the end of cooking. 4. Toss–Together Meal Sometimes you have what you need already cooked and read to assemble. Prepare a nourishing bowl with leftover brown rice topped with chicken or shrimp and steamed broccoli or cauliflower. Make your one pot meal a fall staple. Full of healthful benefits and easy to put together. Most one-pot meals taste better the next day, so they can be cooked ahead and reheated as needed. Keep the nutrients up and the calories down for a slimmer waist and better overall health. Bring Eating From Within to your workplace! Contact me to learn more about my corporate wellness programs.

Rothwell accounted for her second tally of the game setup by Lemeiux. Ashley Barrett got into the scoring act with a goal from Buckley via a corner shot. Senior Natasha Cushing completed the scoring in this game with her first-ever career varsity goal from Haley Castinetti. Goalie Emily Dickey only had to make one save to secure the shutout. Amesbury is one of only a handful of schools that still

play on a grass field, much to the chagrin of coaches like Reardon, who realize it definitely slows down the pace of the game, compared to field turf. “You have all of these skill players on the field, and you can’t use them effectively, because they have trouble moving the ball on grass,” she said. The annual Play for the Cure Breast Cancer game took place Thursday night, Oct. 5, against Ipswich after press deadline. The Lynnfield girls will remain at home to take on non-league Peabody on Friday, Oct. 6, starting at 5 p.m. for the varsity.

Beacon Hill Roll Call By Bob Katzen THE HOUSE AND SENATE: Beacon Hill Roll Call records local representatives’ and senators’ votes on several of the roll calls on overriding some of Gov. Charlie Baker’s cuts of $320 million in spending in the $39.4 billion fiscal 2018 state budget. A two-thirds vote in both branches is needed for a veto to be overridden. The House has so far restored an estimated $284 million and the Senate $24.9 million. House and Senate Democratic leaders said the budget was balanced and that Baker’s cuts were unnecessary and would hurt many people including the sick, seniors, children and minorities. The governor and GOP leaders said the Legislature should wait until more tax revenue figures are in so that members can see if the state can afford to restore this funding. Some Republicans said that because of this uncertainty they voted to sustain all of Gov. Baker’s vetoes, even though it meant voting against restoring funding for many good programs they would otherwise have supported. “The Baker-Polito Administration put forward a balanced budget, eliminated millions of dollars in earmark spending and increased funding for education, addiction prevention initiatives and other key programs this fiscal year,” said Baker spokesman Brendan Moss. “The current fiscal environment, specifically soft revenue collection reports to date, indicates there is no basis to support the legislature’s decision to increase spending by $284 million.” “The Senate has carefully reviewed vetoes in the context of our difficult fiscal situation and ongoing efforts on health care cost containment,” said Senate Ways and Means chair Karen Spilka (D-Ashland). “I am confident that the budget remains in balance and cautiously optimistic about revenue collections and potential savings moving forward.” CUT $1.1 MILLION FOR RECOVERY HIGH SCHOOLS (H 3800) House 139-15, overrode a reduction of $1.1 million (from $3.6 million to $2.5 million) for recovery high schools -- pub-

lic schools where students can earn a high school diploma and are supported in their recovery from alcohol and drug use. (A “Yes” vote is for funding the $1.1 million. A “No” vote is against funding it.) Rep. Bradley Jones No CUT $550,000 FOR PROMOTION OF HEALTH AND DISEASE PREVENTION (H 3800) House 125-28, overrode a reduction of $550,000 (from $4,110,977 to $3,560,977) 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. (A “Yes” vote is for funding the $550,000. A “No” vote is against funding it.) Rep. Bradley Jones No CUT ENTIRE $60,000 FOR TEACHING FINANCIAL LITERACY (H 3800) House 120-33, overrode the 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 $250,000. A “No” is against funding it.) Rep. Bradley Jones No CUT $1.25 MILLION FOR

Thomas McGee Yes CUT $800,000 FOR PEDIATRIC PALLIATIVE CARE (H 3800) Senate 37-0, overrode a reduction of $800,000 (from $2,606,334 to 1,806,334) for pediatric palliative care. (A “Yes” vote is for funding the $800,000. A “No” vote is against funding it.) Sen. Thomas McGee Yes CUT $200,000 FOR SAMARITANS (H 3800) Senate 34-2, overrode a reduction of $200,000 (from $400,000 to $200,000) for the Samaritans for suicide prevention services.

Tufts’ website says that its progressive academic programs, high-quality clinical care services and original research have brought them national and worldwide acclaim.

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.
