he Peabody Tanners were a competitive squad last fall. This year they hope to take the next crucial step forward in order to come away with more wins and advance further in the Div. I playoffs. The Tanners finished 5-6 in 2016 but could have had another couple of victories had they been able to hold on to a third quarter lead at Beverly and been able to avoid a few costly mistakes in a close second-round playoff loss to Lincoln-Sudbury. Head coach Mark Bettencourt is looking to experienced senior returnees Eric

DeMayo (fullback, linebacker), Noah Freedman (running back) and Cam Powers (defensive end) to lead the way for a program that is sporting over 80 players this year counting junior varsity. Offensively, the Tanners will be bolstered by junior quarterback Colby Therrien, senior wide receiver Sam Mastromatteo, sophomore wide receiver Dylan Peluso, senior running back Ryan Vinagro and junior tackle Michael Lock. On defense, DeMayo and Powers should get help from senior cornerback No-

Chalvire takes on Charest for Ward 4 seat By Christopher Roberson


ukia Chalvire has challenged incumbent City Councillor Edward Charest for the chance to bring adequate representation back to Peabody’s fourth ward. “After meeting and listening to Ward 4 residents express their dissatisfaction with the current councillor’s overall performance and his lack of visibility in the ward, I feel I can provide the representation that they are looking for,” said Chalvire. “I am grateful for the warm and enthusiastic reception from the Ward 4 residents.” New to the political arena, Chalvire said her background is in sales, marketing and self-employment, providing “great insight in terms of negotiating, problem solving, interpersonal, critical and creative skills which are a prerequisite for any political office.” Chalvire said she and her campaign staff have been out talking to voters for the past four months. “We are listening to voters’ concerns, taking notes and working towards solutions already, not waiting until I am elected,” she said. At this point, Chalvire said Ward 4 is in need of a fresh start. “There appears to be a communication gap between voters and the current Ward 4 councillor. When elected, I will regularly schedule office hours to give residents the opportunity to meet with me face to face to discuss their concerns and encourage input,” she said. “I believe we need to foster a new vision and create a path forward for Ward 4, all the while maintaining the quality of life we enjoy and ensuring Peabody remains affordable

for seniors, hardworking families and our small business community.” If elected, Chalvire said, addressing infrastructure problems, such as poor water pressure as well as deteriorating roads and sidewalks, would be at the top of her list. In response, Charest said Chalvire’s statements regarding his performance and visibility are simply inaccurate. “I’m surprised to hear that,” he said. “I’m out there more than the average ward councillor; people actually know me.” In addition, Charest said he has always made it a point to return phone calls. “I’m a big believer in getting back to people,” he said. Charest said some of his ac-

complishments during the past 19 months include moving an MBTA bus stop out of a residential neighborhood on Forest Street, preventing solar panels from being installed on Jill’s Way and Wahtera Road, improving water pressure in the Brooksby Farm neighborhood and thwarting off overdevelopment on Richardson Road and Mount Pleasant Street. “I know my ward, I’m pleased with what I’ve been able to accomplish,” said Charest. “I’ve always worked very hard; I’ve never taken things laying down.” A Ward 4 resident for 28 years, Charest said he served on the School Committee for

Geomelos looks to keep city “desirable and affordable” By Christopher Roberson


hen Ward 6 City Councillor Barry Sinewitz announced that he would be stepping down after a decade of service, Michael Geomelos took it upon himself to be the one who would raise the flag and carry on. “I was determined to make sure that the residents of Ward 6 would continue to have a strong advocate for the issues that are important to them,” said Geomelos. The only caveat is he will need to get by Margaret Tierney and Mark O’Neill, who also have plans to represent Ward 6. Although this is his first bid for elected office, Geomelos said his campaign has been “overwhelmingly positive” thus far. “I am blessed to have an incredibly hardworking and enthusiastic committee who work with me every day to deliver the campaign’s positive message to our friends and neighbors,” he said. Geomelos said the common theme from Ward 6 residents is that they are“generally pleased”with the city’s forward progress and the work of Mayor Edward Bettencourt during the past six years. “Property values have never been higher and Peabody is a highly desirable destination for young families, empty nesters and retirees alike,” he said. However, Geomelos also said there is a risk of residents being priced out of the city.“People have concerns that as taxes continue to rise, Peabody at some point may not always be the most affordable community on the North Shore,”he said. “Keeping Peabody a desirable and

Michael Geomelos

affordable place to live, raise a family and grow old is the challenge.” Therefore, Geomelos said, he would push to keep real estate taxes at a minimum and stand against excessive development. In addition, Geomelos said he is a strong proponent of immigration. “My family owns and operates the last leather shop remaining in Peabody, once the ‘Leather Capital of the World.’ As has always been the case in our industry, we employ many new arrivals to our country,” he said. “Working with them every day is a constant reminder of our obligation to improve the lives of those around us wherever and whenever we

He was also a member of the Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) when his daughters were in elementary school. “I was one of the few fathers in the elementary school PTO,” he said.

Former Peabody High forward Marissa Orlando, who scored 23 goals over the last two seasons for Peabody, should provide more firepower on offense.

Committee Member Thomas Rossignoll scored the tying run to make it a 3-3 game. “It was a lot of fun, it was a great time for a great cause,” he said after the game. From there, Peabody surged ahead when Bettencourt’s brother Kevin broke the tie to put the Leather City in front. Bettencourt also demonstrated some masterful defense as he jumped up from the mound to snatch a Salem hit in the sixth inning.

THE PEABODY ADVOCATE - Friday, September 8, 2017 Despite a late two-run push by Salem, Peabody was able to hang on for the win after seven innings. “Our bats kind of died and Peabody’s woke up,” said Salem’s Christopher Palawara. He said this year’s final score was much closer than in prior years. “We’re on the up and up,” he said. In addition to Rossignoll and the Bettencourt brothers, Peabody also had School Committee Member Joseph Amico playing first base as well as fellow committee members John Olimpio and Jarrod Hochman manning other positions. Since 2013, the game has been organized by Peabody Councillor-at-Large Thomas Gould and Salem City Council President Elaine Milo. Gould said the game typically raises between $1,000 and $2,000 each year for the Haven. “We picked the Haven because it’s one of the best nonprofits around,” he said. “There are more and more kids going hungry; unfortunately it’s a growing population.” Gould said the event has steadily flourished during the past four years. “The interest has grown every year, we play for pride,” he said. Gould remained modest about his responsibility as one of the game’s organizers. “It’s not a big deal; we’re just trying to reach out and have some fun with some colleagues,” he said.

Peabody Chamber to host Beer Garden at International Festival


eer lovers rejoice! Those attending Peabody’s International Festival this year will once again be able to enjoy a “cold one� at the city’s signature cultural celebration. The International Festival Committee is pleased to announce that the Peabody Area Chamber of Commerce (PACC) will be hosting a Beer Garden at the Festival again this year. The Beer Garden will be located in the parking lot of North Shore Bank on Main Street and will be open during Festival hours from 12:00 p.m.-6:00 p.m. The tasty brews on tap will be a fine compliment to the delicious ethnic cuisine available up and down Main Street. Karl’s Sausage Kitchen will be a part of the beer garden, serving currywurst and pretzels. “The Chamber presented us with the idea of a Beer Garden during this year’s Festival planning process and we all agreed that it was definitely worth a try,� said the co-chair of International Festival Committee, Mary Bellavance. “North Shore Bank was gracious enough to offer us a spot for the Beer Garden, and we are really excited about this new addition.� “Beer tents or gardens have become a mainstay of festivals around the country, in particular with the popularity of craft beer,�commented PACC President & CEO Deanne Healey. “Several years ago we learned the Chamber used to host a beer garden at the festival, and we have been looking at ways to bring this feature back. We think it is a nice addition and just another way to ensure the International Festival remains competitive in its offerings in order to attract people to the event.� There will be a per person beer limit and IDs will be checked at the entrance of the North Shore Bank parking lot. Those under the age of 21 will not be allowed within the premises of the Beer Garden.

Fenwick Football kick off season at H-W By Greg Phipps


ith a smaller roster of players in 2017, the Bishop Fenwick (BF) Crusaders are coming off a strong 7-4 campaign last season. Head coach David Woods has the challenge of trying to duplicate, or perhaps even surpass, last fall’s effort with less manpower. BF had over 60 players in last year’s program. This year they have about half that number. Last season’s record included a first-round playoff victo- Bishop Fenwick football players and coaches head to the practice field on Tuesday.

Bolstered by junior quarterback Cory Bright and senior players Dylan Mullen (wide receiver, cornerback) and Tyler Layton (linebacker, running back), the Crusaders open this Saturday at Hamilton-Wenham (scheduled 1 p.m. kickoff ). BF shutout H-W, 22-0, in last year’s opener and will look to try and ignite 2017 in a similar manner. The Crusaders play their home opener on Sept. 15 against Dedham.

Boys’ soccer: New look Tanners seek playoff berth By Greg Phipps


ow in his 20th season as head boys’ soccer coach at Peabody High, Stan McKeen is looking to achieve another postseason berth in 2017. Early last season, it looked as if Peabody might not qualify for the Div. I playoffs when they got out of the gate slowly with a 1-5-1 start. The Tanners turned it around and went 8-21 to close out the regular season and qualify for the tournament. They lost a close 2-1 game to Lowell in round one of the Div. I North playoffs and ended up 9-8-2 overall. McKeen told the press that this year’s goal is to advance beyond round two of the post-season. In order to accomplish that, captains Ja-

BF Boys’ Soccer look for improvement in 2017


irst-year head coach Tony Enos believes this year’s boys’ soccer squad can produce a winning season. BF finished 6-6-2 last year and did not qualify for a post-season berth. Despite having a young team this fall, Enos thinks BF sports three quality goaltenders and will be tough on defense and at midfield. “We’ve been blessed with three very good goalkeepers and a back line that is becoming very organized. We’ll be tough to break down in the midfield,” Enos told the press.“I expect this team will play some exciting soc-

cer and have a winning season.” Enos added that senior forward and co-captain John Mahoney will give other teams all they can handle in the offensive end. Other key players on this year’s squad are senior co-captain Jack Bowers (midfielder) and junior co-captain Brian Harrington (goalie), as well as senior fullbacks Anthony Capo and Skyler Tucker and freshman midfielder Andrew Perry. The Crusaders open their season against Georgetown at home on Wednesday evening (after press deadline).

Beacon Hill Roll Call By Bob Katzen THE HOUSE AND SENATE: There were no roll calls in the House or Senate last week. SENATORS’ VOTES WITH THEIR PARTY LEADERSHIP - This week, Beacon Hill Roll Call reports the percentage of times local senators voted with their party’s leadership in 2017 through Sept. 1. The votes of the 2017 membership of 5 Republicans were compared with those of GOP

Senate Minority Leader Bruce Tarr (R-Gloucester). The votes of the 2017 membership of 32 Democrats were compared to House Majority Leader Harriette Chandler (D-Worcester), second in command in the Senate. We could not compare the Democrats’ votes to those of Senate President Stan Rosenberg (D-Amherst) because by tradition, the Senate president rarely vote.

Beacon Hill Roll Call uses 73 votes from the 2017 Senate session as the basis for this report. This includes all roll calls that were not on local issues. None of the 32 Democratic senators voted with Chandler 100 percent of the time. Twelve came very close and voted with Chandler all but one time. The Democratic senator who voted the lowest percentage of times with Chandler was Sen. Walter Timilty (D-Milton) who voted with Chandler only 90.4 percent of the time. None of the five GOP senators voted with Tarr 100 percent of the time. The Republican senator who voted the lowest percentage of times with Tarr was Sen. Richard Ross (R-Wrentham) who voted with Tarr only 94.5 percent of the time.

Takin’ a swing

SENATORS’PERCENTAGE OF VOTES SUPPORTING THEIR PARTY’S LEADER IN 2017 The percentage next to the senator’s name represents the percentage of times the senator supported his or her party’s leader. The number in parentheses represents the number of times the senator opposed his or her party’s leader. Some senators voted on all 73 roll call votes. Others missed one or more of the 73 votes. The percentage for each senator 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. Sen. Joan Lovely 98.6 percent (1) 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 legis-

lators 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 latenight 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 August 28-September 1, the House met for a total of 53 minutes while the Senate met for a total of one hour and 13 minutes.

When the public thinks about underwater archaeology, they generally picture intact shipwrecks, pirate treasures and mystery. As archaeologists and resource stewards, we are

all familiar with mystery. We nearly always face that when we first approach a shipwreck site. “What ship is this? I don’t know. I need to investigate.” At various points, we turn outward to colleagues and the public to find answers. The process of addressing this question becomes a form of collaboration and means to engage the public.

he kidneys are bean shaped organs that sit just above the waist on each side of the spinal column. We are usually unaware of them as they laboriously filter the blood and remove excess fluid and waste for elimination in the urine. The kidneys have a crucial role in maintaining the body’s fluids in check. Their other key functions include:

of developing kidney disease. But even if you don’t fit in any of those risk categories, it’s important to take care of these critically important organs. The Cleveland Clinic, an academic medical center, recommends the following steps. 1. Hydrate, but don’t over do it. As usual more is not necessarily better. More than the typical four to six glasses a day won’t help your kidneys work any better 2. Eat healthy foods. Most kidney problems arise out of other medical conditions like

blood in the kidneys. 6. Don’t overdo it when taking over-the-counter medications. 7. If you’re at risk, get regular kidney function screening. Keeping the kidneys healthy and safe requires the same attention to making healthy lifestyle choices similar to keeping your body healthy. Once again we see that a healthy diet is beneficial for the whole body. Keep those fruits, vegetables, whole grain, lean meats

Healthy lifestyle choices for a healthy body! • Secretion of the enzyme renin, which helps regulate blood pressure • Production of the hormone erythropoietin which stimulated red blood cell production • Conversion of vitamin D to its active form, thereby helping to maintain bone tissue As can be expected, any condition affecting kidney health can severely disrupt your health. Take Care Conditions such as high blood pressure, diabetes or a family history of kidney disease can put one in three Americans at an increased risk

high blood pressure and diabetes. Keeping with an eating pattern that controls weight and minimizes the risk for blood pressure and diabetes will help keep kidneys in good condition. 3. Exercise regularly. Like healthy eating habits, regular physical activity can stave off weight gain and high blood pressure. 4. Use caution with supplements and herbal remedies. Excessive amount of certain vitamin supplements and some herbal extracts may be harmful to your kidneys. 5. Quit smoking. Smoking can damage blood vessels, which decreases the flow of

and healthy fats on your menu for overall good health at any age. Bring Eating From Within to your workplace! Contact me to learn more about my corporate wellness programs.

Top New Cars for Older Drivers Dear Savvy Senior, My wife and I are both in our late sixties and are looking to buy a new car. Can you recommend some good resources that can help us evaluate and choose a good car for older drivers? Car Shoppers Dear Shoppers, With more than 40 million licensed drivers in the United States age 65 and older, many automakers today are designing certain vehicles that are friendlier for older drivers. But what makes a good car for seniors? For many, top priorities include a vehicle that’s easy to get into and out of, easy to adjust for fit and comfort, easy to operate and see out of, as well as reliable, safe and a good value. To help you narrow your vehicle choices, Consumer Reports and the American Automobile Association (AAA) offer some great information and tools to assist you. CR Best Cars Consumer Reports recently put out a top 25 ranking of new cars for senior drivers. Each vehicle on their list offers excellent or very good ratings on reliability, safety, road-test performance and owner satisfaction. And, they offer a variety of senior-friendly features that are extremely important to older divers, like: • Easy front-seat access: Vehicles with low door thresholds, wider door openings, and step-in heights that reduce the need for ducking or climbing, make getting into and out of a car easier for those with physical limitations. • Good visibility: Being able to see well out of the front, sides, and back of a vehicle for tall, medium, and shorter drivers. • Simplified controls: Easy-to-read gauges and simplified/intuitive controls for changing the radio, shifting gears, and adjusting the heating and cooling is a high priority among older drivers. • Bright headlights: Powerful headlights can make driving at night easier for people with decreasing or compromised vision. They also weighed in extra safety features (standard or optional) like a backup camera, automatic emergency braking, forward-collision warning and blind-spot warning. Their picks include a variety of compact and midsized sedans and SUVs, two minivans and a station wagon from seven different automakers. Here’s their top 25 ranking, starting with one through 25: Subaru Forester; Subaru Outback; Kia Soul; Subaru Legacy; Kia Sportage; Toyota Highlander; Toyota Prius V; Toyota RAV4; Honda Odyssey; Nissan Rogue; Honda Accord; Ford C-Max Hybrid; Hyundai Sonata; Toyota Camry; Subaru Crosstrek; Toyota Sienna; Honda CR-V; Honda Pilot; Kia Forte; Ford Escape; Toyota Corolla; Kia Sorento; Ford Flex; Hyundai Santa Fe; Hyundai Tucson. For more information on their top 25 list, see AAA Tool Another great resource that can help you evaluate and chose a vehicle that meets your needs is the AAA online tool “Smart Features for Older Drivers.” At you can check the areas you have problems with – like diminished vision, cognitive decline, limited upper body range of motion, decreased leg strength, arthritic hands, short stature or overweight – and the tool will identify vehicles that have the features that will best accommodate your needs. Although this tool looks at model-year 2016 vehicles, in many cases the features shown are carried over for 2017 models. They also have a Smart Features brochure you can download that will tell you what to look for in a vehicle to best accommodate your needs. Send your senior questions to: Savvy Senior, P.O. Box 5443, Norman, OK 73070, or visit Jim Miller is a contributor to the NBC Today show and author of “The Savvy Senior” book.

SCREEN FOR HEP C Television and radio ads directed primarily toward millenials warn of possible infection with hepatitis C and ads in Veteran organization publications set out the same warnings particularly directed toward Viet Nam Veterans. From the ads we learn that Veterans have an increased risk of being infected in part to blood exposure as from transfusions after combat wounds. The VA is presently the largest provider of hepatitis C treatment with an estimated 234,000 Veterans affected. Since many do not have any symptoms or know that they are infected with the virus, all Veterans should request screening for the virus through the VA healthcare system particularly if they have had a blood transfusion. If you have had a blood transfusion at any time and from any source then learn about the risk factors and get the screening. Untreated hepatitis C can be deadly. For more information see: and Thank you for your service.
