ward. Sinewitz has decided not to seek reelection to the city council next year. Sinewitz thanked his ward for their support and pledged to make his last ward Fourth of July celebration a great one. “I want to make this the best party,” Sinewitz said to applause. He also expressed gratitude to the “heroes,” as he called them, who made the events possible: Lighting Commissioner Tom Paras and city Water Quality Manager/CCCP Coordinator

Davis Scribner, to name a few. Mayor Bettencourt, addressing the crowds, thanked Sinewitz for his hard work. Bettencourt said that the councillor “put his heart and soul” into the position and the ward he represented, going on to say that he has “done an outstanding job.” “As crowded as it is, it’s a testament to his last year,” Councillor Manning-Martin said in a conversation with the Advocate.

A longstanding tradition The Fourth of July ward celebrations have a long history. Councillor Manning-Martin said that she used to attend the celebrations as a child. The Horribles parade, which took place in Wards 1 and 3, dates back to the 19th century. The odd, colorful parades satirize everything in society, from politics to religion and everything in between. New England in particular is known for its Horribles parades. The doll carriage, bicycle and tricycle parade, a staple in most wards, is also a colorful tradition. Children usually decorate their carriage, wagon, bike or trike in patriotic colors – red, white and blue – and ornamentation and parade through the streets, after which getting the chance to win a prize for their handiwork. The festivities last Tuesday weren’t all. Despite the sparks going off around the city that day, there were plenty more had in the form of fireworks later that night.

U.S. Senior Open: Perry wins two-way battle for title By Greg Phipps


he 38th U.S. Senior Open became a two-way contest in the final round, as both Kenny Perry and Kirk Triplett put forth impressive below-par performances through the first three days to distance themselves from the rest of the field at the Salem Country Club last weekend. On day four, Sunday, it would be Perry who would continue his under-par excellence with a 68 on the par-70 course. Triplett, on the other hand, got off to a slow start and ended up shooting a 1-over 71, which resulted in Perry finishing 16-under and taking home this year’s Senior Open trophy by two strokes. It was Perry’s second Open title, putting him in some elite company of multiple title winners, including Miller Barber, Jack Nicklaus, Gary Player and Hale Irwin. “I’m honored. All these great names that are on this

trophy – just blows me away to be a part of it,” said Perry after Sunday’s win. “I mean this trophy goes back a long way.” Perry’s four-round total of 264 set a record for the lowest score by a Senior Open champion. It eclipsed the previous mark of 267 originally established by Irwin back in 2000 and matched by Perry himself when he won his first Open title in 2013. “It’s unreal, to tell you the truth. It’s our goal to win our championship, and I never could get it done on the [PGA] Tour,” said Perry. “It’s such an honor for me to represent this Tour. To me, this and the Senior PGA are the two exclusive tournaments on Tour.” On Sunday, Perry opened with a birdie on the first hole and took the lead on the fourth. He would never relinquish that advantage, as Triplett, who held the top spot through the first three rounds by shooting 15-under, struggled out of the

stroke deficit on the back-nine and pulled within two with the 17th and 18th holes left to play. But he was unable to gain any more ground. Triplett was asked if nerves were part of it. “I’m sure it was. The more you want something, the harder it is to get it,” he answered. “The warm up was fine. I hit some okay shots early in the round. I had a three-putt on five that kind of knocked me off balance a little bit. I really misjudged a couple of pins Kenny Perry shot under par all four rounds and set a record for and didn’t realize how severe the lowest total score in Senior Open history this past weekend some of the spots were.” Perry said his putting at the Salem Country Club.

An interview with Bill Aylward, veteran chef keeping the lights on By Melanie Higgins


or this week in our series of candidate interviews, we talked with Bill Aylward, current Vice Chairman and Lighting Commissioner for the Peabody Municipal Light Plant (PMLP), who is seeking reelection. The PMLP, which provides light to all Peabody residents and parts of neighboring Lynnfield, has been recognized as having some of the lowest rates in the state. Aylward wants to keep them that way. Just recently, the PMLP low-

ered its rates. Under Aylward’s tenure, the PMLP has and will continue to take on a number of projects. It will install new LED streetlights around the city and new hightech automatic meters. It is also currently installing fiber for safety notifications, and a new antenna system. Also, under Aylward’s tenure, the PMLP has received a new“state of the art”billing system. In the past, the PMLP has helped out significantly with community outreach, notably

with its senior concert every year. While Aylward was a light commissioner, he motioned for the plant to approve a $1 million donation to support the construction of the new football field at the high school, which was approved. “My first term has been fantastic and I have learned a lot about the PMLP!” Aylward said, in a statement to The Advocate. “During my tenure as Light Commissioner I have had the pleasure to meet lots of new folks and help out lots of people throughout the city with issues pertaining to their electricity.” This week we asked Aylward to talk a little bit about himself and some of the plans he has for Peabody moving forward.

For starters: What’s your personal background? Trained in the culinary field, owned my own landscape business for a number of years. Who is in your family? I have two teenage boys, Wil and Christopher. What’s your education (high school and college plus degree, if applicable) Graduate of Peabody Veter-

ans Memorial High School (1989) and graduate of TAD Technical institution in Chelsea (1991). What’s your political background (e.g., elected and appointed, number of years, whether you are an incumbent)? Incumbent Peabody Municipal Light Commissioner five years, currently vice chairman. What’s your occupation? Executive Chef. How many years have you lived in Peabody? 45. Questions: Why are you running? To continue to upgrade the infrastructure of the plant, provide support to the City of Peabody, and to continue the trend of having the lowest rates and most reliable service in the Commonwealth. If elected, what will be your priorities? To continue to represent the people of Peabody and keep their electric rates low, as well as provide exceptional constituent services.

Bill Aylward

What do you see as the biggest issue(s) in your ward? Traffic and streets. What do you see are the biggest issues in Peabody as a whole? Traffic, streets, downtown development. What about Peabody do you love the most? Hard to pick one thing ... being a Peabody boy and raising my two boys here, taking them fishing in ponds that I used to fish at as a kid, coaching them on fields that I used to play on. Peabody is really a special place to me and my children.

Teresa’s Boutique celebrates Grand Reopening By Melanie Higgins


ast Friday Teresa’s Boutique, a store providing specialty items in jewelry, quilts, clothing for children’s dolls and other similar quality items, celebrated its Grand Reopening at its location at 71 Main St. Mayor Ted Bettencourt and other city officials and organizations, including Ward

4 Councillor Ed Charest and members from the Peabody Area Chamber of Commerce (PACC), came out to visit and offer their congratulations. The store features a name change (formerly known as Teresa’s Crafters Boutique) and updates to both the interior and exterior designs. As with other nearby shops downtown, including cof-

fee shop Breaking Grounds (67 Main St.), the new storefront features pedestrian-facing signage. The new signage, which contrasts with existing signage on many downtown building facades, is more visible to pedestrians on sidewalks. The change is a small one that city officials hope will help spur greater econom-

ic development downtown – a major push as of recently.

U.S. Senior Open: Players enjoy experience at Salem course By Greg Phipps


unner-up Kirk Triplett might have made the most impact with his comment that he hopes the Senior Tour chooses the Salem Country Club in Peabody when deciding where to host the U.S. Senior Open or other tour events in the future.“I hope they pick this place again. It’s awesome,”said Triplett at the end of his post-tourney press conference on Sunday. The Salem Country Club previously hosted the Senior

Open back in 2001 before getting the nod again for this year. Fourth-place finisher Tom Lehman was very high on the location, the people and the atmosphere. “It’s a fantastic course. I think this really is the perfect kind of course for the Tour to play. It’s sensational, the membership was superb, the city of Boston is the best,” said Lehman, who added that the greater Boston area’s reputation for its sports following helps. “I’d love to play here every

SALEM | FROM PAGE 4 Well-known golf figures – such as nine-time PGA major winner Tom Watson, threetime PGA major champion Vijay Singh, two-time PGA Masters winner and former Senior Open champion Bern-

hard Langer and former PGA Masters champ Fred Couples – drew crowds of loyal fans who followed them during their rounds. Winner Kenny Perry had his legion of rooters as well. The crowds filled the 18th hole spectators’ area and bleachers when Perry made

his way to the 18th green on Sunday. “There were a lot of great fans out there cheering me on. It felt like I had a lot of support,” said Langer of his experience at the Salem course. “It was fantastic. People are great here.”

Page 5 The lesser known players appreciated the energy from the country club and the fans as well. “I think it was a great week. As players, we enjoyed ourselves here,” said third-place finisher Brandt Jobe. “This is really a nice golf course.”

Vijay Singh was another popular figure at this year’s event. He ended up with a strong seventh place finish.

Fred Couples was a model of consistency on Sunday, shooting par or better on every hole. He ďŹ nished in a two-way tie for fourth at 8-under.

Kirk Triplett’s 71 on Sunday came after he shot three consecutive below-par rounds. He had the lowest score ever for a second place ďŹ nisher at the Senior Open.

Brandt Jobe struggled a bit on Sunday but still managed a par 70 to earn sole possession of third place.

Kirk Triplett, shown here teeing o on the 5th hole on Sunday, lost his lead to Kenny Perry early in the ďŹ nal round and was never able to regain it.

Kenny Perry launched his approach shot on the 18th hole on Sunday.

“After two days, if you had told me [I’d finish third], I’d be happy,� he said after Sunday’s round. “I wish I’d played better today. I had a chance early on in the round to really get some-







thing going. You’re always measured on what you’ve won ‌ not how many third places you get, or seconds or fifths, or how much money you made.� Rounding out the top 10 were Glen Day in sixth (6-under 274), Stephen Ames, Vijay Singh, and Scott Verplank in seventh (5-under 275) and Doug Garwood and Lee Janzen in 10th (4-under 276). Two noteworthy players who missed this year’s cut were 2016 champion Gene Sauers and three-time PGA Masters and British Open champion Nick Faldo, who fell short of the cut by one stroke.

U.S. Senior Open: Course, conditions posed challenge By Greg Phipps


espite what was, for the most part, an excellent four days weather-wise, the Salem Country Club course did pose some challenges for the competitors at the U.S. Senior Open tournament last week. The course played noticeably tougher during last Saturday’s third round and Sunday’s final round. Cases in point were Bernhard Langer’s drop from an 8-under start over the first two rounds to 6-over on the final two days, Tom Watson going from 2-under the first two days to 5-over on Saturday and Sunday, Corey Pavin’s 6-over on Sunday and Colin Montgomerie’s par effort through two rounds to his 4-over performance over the weekend. Perhaps even more telling was Scott Verplank going from 8-under the first two days to 3-over in rounds three and four and Doug Garwood falling from 9-under Thursday and Friday to 5-over in the final two rounds. The greens, which had played slower than normal in the early rounds, became harder and faster on Sunday because of thunderstorms that rolled through the region Saturday night. “[The course] played really, really hard,” said Fred Couples, referring to the heavy rain that came down Saturday.

Fourth-place finisher Couples was one of the consistent players throughout the tourney, never shooting above par. Others, such as Miguel Angel Jimenez, last year’s runner-up who tied for 18th this year, were consistent enough (scores between 68-72) but failed to challenge for the lead. Langer said the changing winds had an effect as well. “It was really difficult with the gusty winds. It was tough,” he pointed out after Saturday’s play. “One minute it’s blowing 25 and the next it was blowing five or 10. So it’s just difficult.” Runner-up Kirk Triplett saw the pin placements over the weekend as the biggest difference.“The pins were significant-

ly tougher, I felt, than the first couple of rounds,” he said. “They were in some different portions of the green, and I think you had to be a little more conservative off the tee. You could play some shorter clubs and rely on some bounce.” Brandt Jobe, who came in third, agreed that the pin placements were more challenging over the weekend, and that the rain Saturday night made the course firmer. “There were a few pins where there was no possible way to even get it close on par-5s,” he explained. “[On Sunday] the ball ran a little bit, and I don’t think the scores were all that good. So [Sunday] is probably how they wanted the golf course to play all week. It was frustrating out there. It was just hard to get the golf ball close.”

On a beautiful summer morning with bright sunshine, blue skies and singing birds, we lost a gracious, loving, one of a kind lady. Our sadness is lightened by wonderful, joyful memories of a lady with a heart so large, warm, kind, compassionate and full of laughter, happiness and goodness. Her outer beauty was matched only by her inner beauty. Lois Winifred Carlton of Peabody, and previously of Malden, passed away at home on June 22, 2017 at the age of 86, due to complications of Multiple Sclerosis and Dementia with her daughter by her side. Lois was the wife and partner of Robert Munroe Carlton who passed away in December, 2009 after 56 years of marriage. She leaves behind her daughter Roberta and her husband John Russell of Peabody with whom she lived, her son Robert S. Carlton and his wife Susan of Maine, her son Philip A. Carlton of Colorado, her grandchildren Katherine Russell of California, Jacob Carlton of Maine and Nicholas Carlton of Montana, her sister Margaret King of Washington and her niece Deborah and husband Don Schlosser of Washington. Lois was the daughter of Herbert and Winnie (Snow) Reid and was born and raised in Chelsea, MA. Her mother was born in Newfoundland and her father's

OBITUARIES | FROM PAGE 12 family was from Newfoundland. Lois spent childhood summers in Newfoundland and was proud of her "Newfie" heritage. In 1953, Lois graduated from the Whidden Memorial Hospital School of Nursing in Everett. As a Registered Nurse, she worked at the hospital in labor and maternity, as a visiting nurse for Everett Visiting Nurse Association,

as an industrial nurse at Coldwater Seafood in Everett, in the substance abuse program at Somerville Hospital and was part of the startup team at Atlanticare Medical Center's drug and alcohol rehabilitation program. In the 1970's Lois was the head nurse at the original Charles Street Jail in Boston. Lois and Bob built their home in Malden in 1953. Their backyard was private and lush with many trees, ter-

raced flower gardens and a waterfall and pool with fish. It was a sanctuary for birds and animals and the site of frequent parties, cookouts, volleyball games and just family enjoying the sunset. Lois spent many happy hours weeding and planting. Lois also used her backyard for a cause close to her heart when she became involved in the care of feral cats. She built outdoor shelters, provided food and water

and assisted in humane trapping so the cats could be spayed/neutered and vaccinated. She also fostered and socialized several cats in her home. Lois was a lady ahead of her time recognizing the need to acknowledge and accept individuals for who they are. She chose to see the best in people and situations. We were so familiar with "Random Acts of Kindness", long before it became popular. We ob-

department. Some of the changes, Simmons described, are an epoxy sealant for the concrete floor which will improve appearance, and sectioning off the defunct partitions in the upper areas for a more "streamlined" look. Simmons asked that special notice be taken also to former Councilor Dave Gamache, who he said has been working especially hard to get the seating and other details in place before the school year resumes. Gamache has done "terrific work", he said. "Mayor Bettencourt thought that this was a very important project for this summer," Chief of Staff Chris Ryder said, in lieu of the Mayor. "PHS has a terrific performing arts project and is worthy for their wonderful performances." To the roof and gymnasium projects, Ryder attributed the renovations to routine maintenance. The latest renovations, Ryder said, come on the heels of recent fixes to the High School cafeteria, and before that, the track and football field. "We want to extend the life of the building." Ryder said.

High School getting a facelift

enovations to Peabody High School are underway. In a post on his public Facebook page last Tuesday, Mayor Ted Bettencourt told of new seating and carpeting for the auditorium in the works, and numerous other renovations coming in the next few months. Bettencourt called the repairs to the auditorium a “major renovation”. The renovations are among a number of upgrades to the High School this summer, including repairs to the roof and a replacement of the school’s gymnasium floor surface. Work on the gym floor surface, Bettencourt said, will take place at the end of this month. Jon Simmons, Director of Performing Arts at PHS, said that he and the department are "simply thrilled" about the renovations. "We're simply elated that the city was willing to put up the capital," he continued, thanking Mayor Bettencourt especially for taking the project on. The renovations, in addition to the recent success of the Drama Club, equal something of a winning streak for the Performing Arts

recognition, but because it was right. She was a powerful example for how to conduct oneself and to treat others. Lois was mischievous, full of fun and adventuresome. She loved hosting celebrations and theme parties that included costumes, pinatas, foot

She and Bob traveled extensively in this country and around the world including Japan, Thailand, Bonaire, Majorca and Portugal. Lois always ate the local cuisine and immersed herself in the local culture/customs. To celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary they traveled by rail across the Canadian Rockies. During their travels and at local functions/ gatherings, Lois was known for her stylish but unusual outfits. She pulled it off beautifully. Later in life Bob and Lois enjoyed spending memorable times with their children and grandchildren in Maine and Colorado including heated games of Uno, singing, joking, reminiscing and just sitting on the dock or in front of a fire with a glass of port.
