The website also states that in 2012, Little Free Library was hailed as “a global sensation” by the Associated Press. In October 2015, the organization received the Library of Congress’s Literacy Award. During the past eight years, Little Free Libraries have popped up in every state and in 70 countries. Including the new location at Emerson Park, there are now 49 Little Free Libraries in Massachusetts. There are also 250 Facebook pages featuring Little Free Libraries, as well as 30,000 photos on Instagram, Flickr and Pinterest.

Peabody responds to hurricane-ravaged Puerto Rico By Christopher Roberson

A

long with other North Shore communities, Peabody has answered the desperate cry for help from a place 1,700 miles away: Puerto Rico. On Sept. 20, the island was

decimated by punishing winds of up to 155 miles per hour from Category 4 Hurricane Maria, according to the National Hurricane Center. Before Maria, Puerto Rico had caught a glancing blow from Hurricane Irma on Sept. 6, which at the time was an even

stronger Category 5 monster. In addition to 34 deaths and the immense level of destruction, Maria knocked out power to all 3.4 million residents. The current outlook remains bleak, as electricity is not expected to be restored for the next six to 12 months.

“We have dribbles of communications telling us about the conditions … The island is unrecognizable; many people are going to spend the holidays homeless,” said Georgianna Melendez, a member of the new Facebook group North Shore Mass. for Puerto Rico, during a community meeting on Oct. 3. Melendez has a number of family members who live on the island. Mayor Edward Bettencourt said he recently received an email from San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz asking for money. “The money request was to rebuild and restructure,” he said. “It’s painful to watch, it’s painful to see.” Therefore, Bettencourt said, the city will set up a PayPal donation link on its website. Melendez said some of the items that will run out the quickest include toothpaste, shampoo, razors and condoms. “People still have sex even if they don’t have electricity,” she said. Other items that can be donated include batteries, car inverter outlets, solar chargers for cellphones and flashlights. Melendez said clothing and bottled water are not being collected, as other communities have been sending those items. “It costs too much for us to ship; let some-

one else take care of that,” she said. Melendez said the City of Lawrence has made tremendous progress in collecting donations. “They have a warehouse with pallets piled high,” she said. Yet, Melendez said one of her greatest concerns is that the crisis in Puerto Rico could eventually be forgotten. “My fear with disaster relief is once it’s not in the news anymore, people forget about it,” she said. Melendez said another challenge is transporting items from Peabody to Puerto Rico. “If someone has a private plane, please tell me,” she said. In response, one resident said she would speak with officials at Beverly Airport about the possibility of making such arrangements. Residents also suggested sending letters to local businesses asking for donations and making robocalls. In addition, Scott Sternberg of Salem suggested sending aid to cities elsewhere on the island so as not to get it lost in the bottleneck at San Juan. Melendez also urged residents to attend a relief drive, which will be held at Immaculate Conception Parish at 15 Hawthorne Blvd. in Salem from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Oct. 7.

tudents from Peabody, Ly n n f i e l d a n d o t h e r North Shore communities will once again have the opportunity to cash in on their dreams of having their own businesses with the return of the Young Entrepreneurs Academy (YEA!). YEA! Program Manager Maria Terris, who is also the event coordinator for the Peabody Area Chamber of Commerce, said there are currently 12 students enrolled in this year’s class, four of whom are from Peabody and three from Lynnfield. Those students include Taylor Ross, an eighth grade student at Higgins Middle School, Alex Locke, a junior at Peabody Veterans Memorial High School, Dylan Blacker, a senior at Lynnfield High School, Gianfranco Sacco, a sophomore at Lynnfield High School, Jacob Bettencourt, a senior at Essex Technical High School, Adam Hoffman, a senior at Peabody Veterans Memorial High School and Christopher Areglado, a junior at Lynnfield High School.

dents will be coming from Danvers and Westford. “The students from Peabody and Lynnfield range in age from 13-18 and are all excited to be a part of this innovative program,” said Terris. “They know that it will be work above and beyond school and sports, but they are a committed, dedicated group who want to stand up and stand out.” “Students are chosen based on a written application and

interview,” said Terris. “We look for students who have the entrepreneurial spirit, the desire to create something whether it is a product, service or social movement.” Starting on Oct. 25, YEA! will meet every Wednesday from 4-7 p.m. at North Shore Community College in Danvers.

Water treatment service to return by spring By Christopher Roberson

I

f all goes according to plan, the Coolidge Avenue Water Treatment Plant will be back

in service between February and June of next year. “It’s an incredibly aggressive schedule – incredibly aggressive,” said Leah Stan-

ton of Weston and Sampson during the Sept. 28 City Council meeting. The plant has been closed since it was severely damaged by a three-alarm fire on March 13. It was later determined that the blaze was caused by birds that chewed through electrical wires while nesting on the roof. “The plant’s been offline, let’s get this thing up and running,” said Stanton. The city’s insurance provider has put the total damage at approximately $3.3 million. Within that figure, Stanton said Peabody would be responsible for about $200,000.

She also said it will take “12-14 weeks” to get new pumps and filtration equipment delivered to the plant for installation. Councillor-at-Large David Gravel said he appreciated Stanton’s update. “It helps to enlighten people on how slow it is to do something with public funds,” he said. “It’s like this crazy elongation of a timeline.” Councillor-at-Large Anne Manning-Mar tin said the roof, which was completely destroyed in the fire, was replaced in July. However, crews have not been able to get inside the building, as it remains structurally unsafe. “All that can be done is being done as fast as possible,” said Manning-Martin. In other news, the council voted unanimously to appoint Matthew Genzale of Julie Circle as an alternate member of the Planning Board and Gerry Kruczkowski of Colonial Road as an alternate member of the Conservation Commission. Genzale has owned MRG Construction Management since 2011. Prior to his current position, Genzale was a senior project manager at Prism Builders in Wakefield. Kruczkowski was a student monitor at Peabody Veterans Memorial High School from 2015-2017. For several years, he was a sales representative for companies such as Bel-

mont Springs Water, TruGreen Chemlawn, Workplace Essentials and Curtis 1000. The councillors also voted unanimously to grant a Special Permit to A Mom’s Village to operate a women’s gym and child enrichment center at 635-637 Lowell St. “We’re really excited about bringing our vision of making motherhood a little bit easier to Peabody,” said owner Stephanie Keohan. Ward 6 Councillor Barry Sinewitz assured his colleagues that employment offers will be contingent on the results of CORI checks. “It won’t just be a gym where they throw teenagers in to watch the kids,” he said. In addition, the council unanimously passed two motions regarding The Meadow at Peabody Golf Course. The first motion was to have the course evaluated by an outside company, and the second motion was to refinance the property over a 10-year period. Sinewitz, chairman of the Ad Hoc Committee on Municipal Golf Course/Skating Rink, said the course has encountered financial trouble and refinancing is a plausible solution. “They want to build a driving range for $40,000 – they don’t have any money,” said Sinewitz. “Even in a good year, I think they made $7,000.”

Tanners football notches first win By Greg Phipps

T

he Peabody Tanners may have found their identity after shutting out Revere, 21-0, last Thursday on the road. Head coach Mark Bettencourt is hopeful that his team’s first win of 2017 can supply some momentum entering the second half of the season. The Tanner defense has been pretty strong through the first four games, having given up just one late touchdown in a 7-0 loss to Danvers and 21 first-half

points to a high-powered Marblehead attack. No surprise the defense was up to the task again last Thursday. It was the performance of the Peabody offense, which compiled more points against Revere (21) than it had in the opening three games (14), that was the major plus. “This was a good win on a short week, and we need to carry it over to our next game if we hope to make the playoffs,” Bettencourt told the press after the victory. The 1-3 Tanners host Masconomet Regional in a nonconference contest this Friday at 7 p.m. In the win over Revere, the Tanners took a 7-0 lead into halftime and began the second half with a crucial TD drive. Running back Eric DeMayo blasted through the Revere defense for a 60-yard burst, setting up a short scoring run by Elijah White that led to a 14-0 lead. DeMayo collected a six-yard score of his own in the first half after Nolan Murphy recovered a fumble on the opening kickoff. “That was huge – to get the turnover. That gave us momentum,” said Bettencourt. The final points came after the Tanners partially blocked a Re-

vere punt in the fourth quarter. RB Noah Freedman ended up scoring on a six-yard run. Kicker Austin Leggett made good on all three PAT attempts. Leggett had a 31-yard field goal attempt blocked after quarterback Jonell Espinal connected for four completions – three to White – to put Peabody in scoring position late in the first half. “[Running backs] Freedman, DeMayo and Jake Souza all ran hard. We mixed [quarterbacks] Colby Therrien and Jonell Espinal, sometimes changing on the same series,” said Bettencourt in explaining the offensive game plan. “Our two-headed quarterback situation is working and we’ll ride the guy who is throwing the ball better.” After challenging his offensive line during halftime of the Marblehead game a week earlier, Bettencourt credited the o-line with its “best game” of the season so far after last Thursday’s triumph. On defense, Cam Powers and White both had interceptions. The Tanner defense has allowed 28 points in the last three games. The offense has totaled 35 points for the year, with 21 of those coming in last week’s win.

Peabody volleyball suffers 2nd loss to Danvers By Greg Phipps

A

fter capturing the first set and leading by four points late in game two, the Peabody Tanners couldn’t keep the powerhouse Danvers Falcons at bay and ended up on the losing end of a 3-1 final in Northeastern Conference (NEC) volleyball action on Monday at the Danvers High School Field House. It was Peabody’s second setback by Danvers this season, as the Tanners dropped a 3-2 decision at home when the two rivals met back in September. On Monday, Peabody used solid defensive play and serving to score a 2520 victory in the first game. The Tanners then appeared on the verge of going up by two games. Peabody led 19-15 late in set two before Danvers produced a 10-3 surge to win 25-22 and even the match at one game apiece. In set three, the Tanners were within two points late but, once again, the hosts would hold on to earn a 25-21 victory and pull ahead, 2-1. Peabody head coach Lisa Keene, whose team had won four straight entering Monday’s match, said the Tanners played better on Monday than they had in the previous loss to the Falcons. “I think we had a good first, second and third game. We eliminated a lot of the errors we made when we played them the first time,” she explained. “The last game wasn’t as good. We struggled with our serve and receive and rotations, and that

cost us six or seven points early.” After looking a bit rattled early in the fourth set and falling behind, 9-1, the Tanners showed grit and battled back to pull within two at 19-17 before falling short, 25-21. “They’re a very good team to play against. It’s always a real back-and-forth match between us. We definitely play at a higher level when we play Danvers,” said Keene, whose team fell to 7-3 overall with the loss. Danvers improved to 10-1. For Peabody, setter Rachel Coleman finished with 18 assists and three aces while Serena Laro and Jillian Alimonti

had 11 kills between them. Despite the defeat, Keene focused on the positive aspects of Monday’s match. “We’ve improved a lot since the season started, and service-wise we did a great job tonight,” she pointed out. “[The Falcons] have a stronger hitting team than we do, so we have to be much stronger on defense against them.” Field hockey team earns win, tie through first seven games Through its first seven contests, the Peabody field hockey team has collect-

ed one win and one tie. The Tanners lost to Gloucester last Thursday at home to fall to 1-5-1 entering this week’s play. The victory was a 7-0 shutout of Malden. In that game, Courtney Ball scored twice and had an assist while Kayla Moy, Nicole Ferrante, Ashley Annese, Jessica Bacelar and Haley Carter collected the other goals. Mallory LeBlanc had two assists and Sofia Rodriguez got the win in goal. The Tanners played to a 1-1 tie against Revere. Ball tallied Peabody’s lone score off an assist from LeBlanc.

t had been a while, 24 games in fact, since the Peabody girls’ soccer team had lost a Northeastern Conference (NEC) game. That finally occurred Tuesday evening, as the Tanners were defeated 3-1 at always-tough Danvers. Peabody, which dipped to 3-22 overall after the loss, had dropped two in a row since opening the season with three wins and two ties through its first five contests. Head coach Dennis Desroches acknowledged that Danvers, which has been a perennial conference contender in recent years, has the most experienced team in the

NEC this season. “I think that showed tonight. They were very good crashing [our] goal and they didn’t let us work off ball,” Desroches told the press after the contest. “We were taking an extra touch or two, and against a team that’s as quick as Danvers, they’ll recover and close that down every time.” The Falcons, who raised their record to 6-2 overall, stormed the Tanner net early and missed on several good scoring opportunities before hitting pay dirt midway through the first half and adding a second score with six minutes remaining in period

one to take a 2-0 lead. The second Falcons goal came on a rebound after two consecutive close-in shots hit the crossbar. The young, freshmen-laden Tanners demonstrated their resiliency by scoring in the final minute of the half. Emily Nelson tallied to bring Peabody within a goal at 2-1. A 12-4 shots-on-goal advantage for Danvers in the opening period was evidence of the home team’s territorial edge. Desroches said his Peabody squad was too hesitant at times on offense and needed to shoot more. Danvers produced the only score of the second half with about 10 minutes left in the game. Tan-

ner goalie Shelby Doucette faced 21 shots and saved 18 of them. In last week’s close 3-2 nonleague defeat at Acton-Boxboro, the same team that eliminated them from last year’s playoffs, the Tanners fell behind just 38 seconds into the contest. Peabody dented the net twice in the second half but couldn’t overcome A-B, which also knocked in two second-half goals. Desroches said it was a valuable experience for his young team. He credited Catherine Manning, Aja Alimonti, Jordyn Collins and Colleen Crotty with great defense. Nelson and Jillian Arigo had the goals and Nelson and Aja Alimonti dished out assists.

Make Fall Comfort Foods BY ANNA TOURKAKIS with More Nutrition and NUTRITIONIST Fewer Calories • Use beans in chilis etables, fruit, beans and other

C

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, veg-

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

• Substitute lentils for 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 cancer-fighting vitamins minerals, fiber, 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

One-Pot Meal

Toss-together meal

tomato sauce or vegetable juice. Depending on your recipe, some grains like larger noodles and wheat berries will need pre-cooking. 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.

Beacon Hill Roll Call

Rep. Theodore Speliotis Rep. Thomas Walsh

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 in-

crease 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 — public 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. Theodore Speliotis Rep. Thomas Walsh

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. Theodore Speliotis Rep. Thomas Walsh

CUT $1.25 MILLION FOR KIDS’ MENTAL HEALTH (H 3800) Senate 31-5, overrode a reduction of $1.25 million (from $2.5 million to $1.25 million) for early childhood mental health consultation services in early education and care programs.

H O W LO N G WA S L A S T 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 September 25-29, the House met for a total of six hours and five minutes while the Senate met for a total of five hours and 38 minutes.

Mon. Sept. 25 House 11:02 a.m. to 11:12 a.m. Senate 11:03 a.m. to 11:13 a.m. Tues. Sept. 26 No House session No Senate session Wed. Sept. 27 House 11:04 a.m. to 3:58 p.m. No Senate session Thurs.

Former YEA! students include Matthew Ciampa of Lynnfield, who at the age of 12 created Treasure Socks, a line of custom-made socks designed to carry medications. Ciampa was also selected to present his business idea to MassChallenge and is currently planning to launch his product in 2019. “YEA! gave me the business knowledge and tools to turn my idea into a business,” he said. “As the YEA! program progressed, I was inspired to keep developing my business. YEA! was and is inspirational for kids like me.” Michael Axiotakis of Lynnfield, a high school student at the time, emerged from YEA! with AxioCovers, a custom line of chrome book covers. After high school, Ashley Hurton of Peabody went on to launch HappiWear, a line of exercise clothing, which she currently runs out of her dorm room at San Diego State University. Hurton was the winner of the East Coast Regional Competition in 2016 and presented HappiWear at the U.S. Small Business Summit in Washington, D.C.

VETERAN | FROM PAGE 2 School Committee needs to find a candidate who is a proven educational leader rather than just another administrator. “An educational leader excites and ignites,” he said. The second challenge is the budget. Aiello said that, if elected, he would want to know how every dollar is spent and what the ultimate benefit is for the students. “If I’m sitting there, I’m going to ask the hard questions,” he said. “I’m about making things better; you only accomplish things through cooperation.” The third challenge is to have meaningful professional development sessions. Aiello said he would like to see those sessions facilitated by the district’s own employees rather than hiring an outside person. “Listening to their own people talk is a lot better than bringing someone in from Concord or Carlisle,” he said.
