Town’s budget for fiscal year 2019 begins to take shape By Christopher Roberson


he Board of Selectmen recently listened to budget presentations from the Police Department, the Fire Department and the Department of Public Works (DPW) to begin the process of building the town’s overall budget for fiscal year 2019. During the Dec. 4 meeting, Fire Chief Mark Tetreault said his department is in serious need of a full-time office manager. He said that line item is currently funded at $45,000. “It’s gotten to the point where it’s pretty desperate,” he said,

adding that many of the administrative duties have fallen on Lt. James Alexander. “He’s not able to get out there with his firefighters to train or do area familiarization. I don’t know of any community of this size that doesn’t have administrative support; it’s pretty commonplace.” Chairman Christopher Barrett said he did not like the idea of Alexander sitting behind a desk all day. “He comes in on his shift and he’s doing clerical work? I think that’s something we need to look at,” said Barrett. “It doesn’t seem to be reasonable for the Fire

Department. I’d rather see that firefighter in the community.” However, Vice Chairman Richard Dalton reminded his colleagues about the town’s financial constraints. “Budget increases of more than five percent are not sustainable,” he said, adding that the Fire Department’s budget has increased by $400,000 compared to last year’s figure. “This idea of an administrative position needs to be rethought.” Dalton also reinforced what Town Administrator James

Selectmen chair explains why public forum was not televised By Christopher Roberson


he Town Administrator Public Forum that was held on Nov. 29 was not televised by Lynnfield Media Studios, and Board of Selectmen Chairman Christopher Barrett said doing so was not warranted. “It was an informal meeting,” he said. “It never even crossed my mind to televise it.” Barrett said that in the past, he had been approached by residents who expressed that they did not want to be on television. Therefore, the forum was not aired to offer residents a more relaxed environment. “There was no request or denial to record this meeting,” he said. “Only the Board of Selectmen, School Committee and Town Meeting are regularly recorded. Other meetings are only recorded by special request.” Speaking about the forum itself, Barrett said it was well attended and that the Merritt Center was “75 percent” full. “There were a lot of new

faces that I hadn’t seen before,” he said. Based on what was discussed at the forum, Barrett said residents want a town administrator who has strong financial and budget management skills as well as the ability to create solid relationships with constituents. It was also suggested that the selectmen choose an applicant who is from Lynnfield. Barrett said a total of 38 applications were submitted for the job, one of which came from Washington state. That number was then reduced to nine by search consultant Bernard Lynch. At that point, Barrett said, the Screening Committee cut the group of nine down to a group of four whom the committee will interview on Dec. 9. Barrett also said the board did not see any of the résumés until Dec. 4. “This has certainly been an unbiased process,” he said. “When we make a decision, it’s going to bode well for the town of Lynnfield.”

Planning Board not sold on new subdivision By Christopher Roberson


he six-home subdivision being proposed off of Green Street is currently facing significant opposition from the Planning Board. During the board’s Nov. 29 meeting, Attorney John Kimball, counsel for real estate developers Flaminio Lanzillo and Marenglen Zepaj, said the homes would sit along a 419foot cul-de-sac called Zepaj Lane. In describing the project, Kimball said a sidewalk would be installed on one side of the road, each home would have four bedrooms and a Homeowner’s Association would be established. Lanzillo said that thus far, he and Zepaj have taken down trees, cleared the lots and poured two foundations. Lanzillo also said that prior to taking down any trees, he called Town Hall to ask if a permit was needed. He said he was told that a permit was not necessary unless the trees were located in a wetlands zone. Lanzillo told

the board that he and Zepaj intend to replace the fallen trees with other mature trees elsewhere in the subdivision. However, Planning Board Member Brian Charville said the developers still disrupted the site’s natural environment. “Replication is not the same as preserving what’s there,” he said of the trees. Town Engineer Charles Richter said the project did not have a Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan, which is a major cause for concern. He also identified a drainage connection from 1 Rear Newbury St. in Peabody; the condition of that pipe is still an unknown. Lastly, Richter said the Department of Public Works will require that a sidewalk be installed on both sides of Zepaj Lane. William Jones of Linden Engineering Partners also took issue

ZBA hears Kelly’s pitch for new Rt. 1 dealership By Christopher Roberson


ix days after it was endorsed by the Planning Board, the proposal to build a Kelly Automotive Jeep Dealership at 325 Broadway went before the Zoning Board of Appeals (ZBA). “We’ve worked on this plan for quite a long time,” said Attorney Marc Kornitsky, counsel for the Kelly Automotive Group, during the Dec. 5 meeting – “It’s been going on for years, the design of this building.” Kornitsky said his client is seeking relief for building signage, vehicle access, overspill lighting, the relocation of a street sign and site plan approval. After much discussion, the ZBA voted unanimously to deny the lighting variance. The variance for building signage will be taken up at a later date. Regarding vehicle access, Kornitsky said there are currently two 40-foot curb cuts to give delivery trucks ample access to the dealership off of Route 1. “It makes sense for safety to keep them that way,” he said. However, the town’s zoning bylaws do not allow curb cuts to be longer than 20 feet, hence the need for a variance. Kornitsky also said that owner Brian Kelly wants to move his street sign farther back from the road. “The sign is there as a legally permitted use,” he said. In terms of parking, Kornitsky said the dealership would have 144 spaces, which is 58 more than what is required. He also said that through an easement with the Conservation Commission, residents could park behind the dealership to access the Bow Ridge Conservation Area. Kornitsky said there would be five parking spots, a bike wash, an air pump and a picnic table. Regarding lighting, Kornitsky said he did not view it as being

Member Brian Shaffer did not agree with Kornitsky. “You’ve got this illuminated area, and it’s pretty distracting driving down the road,” he said. However, he said a modified lighting plan could be resubmitted to the ZBA. The project will be heard by the Conservation Commission on Dec. 12. In other news, the ZBA voted unanimously to allow resident Michael Maietta of 10 Ryan Rd. to build a specially designed aboveground swimming pool for his daughter who is physically disabled. Maietta said he has already spoken with abutter Joseph Diblasi and his family about the project, which needs a side yard setback variance of 6.6

feet rather than 20 feet. “They have no objections to the pool and how it’s going to be built,” he said. The board had concerns regarding the gazebo sitting on the property, and Maietta said it was left behind by the prior owners and he is working on getting rid of it. “I’d rather have the pool than the gazebo,” he said. “It’s not important to me at all.” Alternate Member Anthony Moccia expressed his support for the proposal. “Mr. Maietta has special needs that are unique; that’s the principal reason why I feel compelled to support it,” he said. The board members agreed that the pool would be a temporary structure and included a sunset provision to require that the pool be taken down if the property is sold.

Beginnings Through the ages, medical care was provided at home. American hospitals, as we know them today, emerged around the time of the Civil War. Trained physicians and professional nursing staffs manned these institutions, particularly in large urban areas. According to one account, sterilization and anesthesia “opened broad new horizons for surgeons.”Now the hospital was a place where “illness might be treated and cured” for the first time. Whereas most of these early institutions catered to the needs of the indigent, savvy physicians and investors realized that their services should be extended to those

Lynnfield resident to open Saugus massage studio


fter working as an Information Technology (IT) consultant for the past several years, Lynnfielder Scott Speicher of Coleman Avenue decided in January that it was time for a change. “I had an epiphany,” he said. “The wellness business is something that speaks to me. The stars were aligned; it was ideal.” By the end of April, Speicher had signed a franchisee agreement to be the proprietor of the new Elements Massage studio at Walnut Place in Saugus. “That spot was my number one choice,” he said. “Traffic has a tendency to slow down there,

and that puts eyes on my sign.” Speicher said customers always feel much better when they leave Elements and he wanted to be a part of that. “It’s a relaxant, I enjoy making people feel good,” he said. Speicher said that Elements’ soft opening will be held on Nov. 16 and the official ribbon-cutting ceremony would most likely be held in January 2018. He said the ribbon-cutting will coincide nicely with the conclusion of the holiday season, as scores of customers are sure to be zipping up and down Route 1 using their gift cards. From a monetary standpoint, Speicher said, that stretch of Route 1 is the preferable location, as most Elements locations do not produce enough revenue to thrive in locations like MarketStreet Lynnfield. “The financials of the business make it difficult to put it in a prime retail location,” he said, adding that the rent at MarketStreet would be triple the cost of what it is at Walnut Place. Although Speicher is relatively new to the wellness industry, he is confident that his years of working in IT will serve him well. “I know how to run projects and I know how to run business,” he said. “I’m very good at getting stuff done as long as I have a road map.” In addition, Speicher said the new Himalayan Salt Stone Massage is one of the biggest drivers that sets Elements apart from its competition. Unlike other heated stone massages, which Speicher said can actually cause burns, each stone contains 84 minerals that come directly from the Himalayan Mountains. Speicher said it is because of those minerals that the stones only be come warm rather than hot.

Pioneers hockey team has a wealth of skaters to warrant much optimism Lynnfield plays host to Gloucester in Peabody to begin season Saturday at noon By Joe Mitchell


on Gardner is ready to begin his sixth season behind the Lynnfield High School boys’ hockey bench, and if nothing else, this year’s team has considerable depth that affords him opportunities to plug-in capable bodies in case of injuries without missing a beat. “This is definitely the deepest and most talented team we have ever had, and hopefully, it translates into winning games,” Gardner said. “We return 16 players from last year’s team, and we also have two transfers that came back to town, which gives us that experience to feel optimistic about succeeding.” The Pioneers weren’t too bad last year. They were 10-82 during the regular season and 1-1 in the Division 2 North state tournament, before losing to Saugus in the quarterfi-

nal round. They upset Winthrop in a first-round game. Cooper Marengi, Joey Mack and Tyler Murphy are the team’s captains. They have been playing together on the varsity since they were freshmen, adding to that experience that gives the coach confidence heading into the season. Marengi and Murphy are forwards, and Mack will once again take control of the blue line on defense. “When everybody’s healthy, we can go eight deep on defense,” said Gardner. Assistant captain Jaret Simpson will team up with Mack to form a formidable tandem to snuff out offensive threats. Junior Aidan Kelly will start in goal, and he also has capable backups in classmate Steve Barrett and sophomore Anthony Magwood, who right now is Tyler Murphy, Cooper Marengi, and Joseph Mack will reprise their positions as LHS Pioneers recovering from a concussion. hockey team captains this year.

He was the JV goalie last year. Freshman Jake DeBenedictis has also been impressive in net to warrant a shot with the big club if it’s necessary. Gardner welcomed 40 skaters to tryouts late last month, including aforementioned transfers Robbie Brandano, a senior center coming over from St. John’s Prep, and sophomore Jack Hammersley, who was at Malden Catholic. The Pioneers tied Danvers last week in a scrimmage. They also

tied Coyle-Cassidy and were able to defeat Medfield in a couple of more tune-up battles. They will be in most of the games this year and have a lot of rested bodies to go to, while their opponents are tiring in the third period as a result of the Pioneers having a plethora of skaters that will feature five forward lines and four sets of defensemen.

Hennessy was expected to be the third goaltender at UND this season. But thankfully, good things happen to good people as the talented goaltender was scooped up by another stellar D1 hockey program when she recently committed to play nets for Lindenwood University in St. Charles, MO.

By Joe Mitchell


oach Scott MacKenzie’s boys’ basketball team has enjoyed state tournament-winning seasons the last few years, but the veteran coach admits that this season it might be a struggle with practically an entirely new roster, but not impossible to experience success, once again. The Pioneers lost a top-heavy total of nine seniors from last year’s team to graduation, including co-captains Mike Carangelo and Louis Ellis. “A whole truck load of experience walked out the proverbi-

al door, and at this point I don’t know what to expect other than we’re going to do whatever we can to put a competitive product on the floor,”said MacKenzie. “With an entirely new and undersized team, our only goal at the moment is to learn how to practice effectively as a unit,” he added. “But once we are able to put in a consistent effort for an entire practice, we can then put together some [realistic] goals [for the season]. But, unfortunately, we’re a long way off from that [scenario] at the moment.” But a natural leader like Billy Arseneault would be a good

place to jumpstart the new team’s engine. Arseneault, who knows something about exceeding in the postseason, is one of the team’s captains, along with Zach Shone and Dan Jameson. Their classmates, Matt Mortellite, Jason Ndansi and Owen Colbert, also offer experience on the Varsity level. Mortellite and Ndansi are coming off of another playoff-winning football season, coming within just one quarter from securing the Division 5 North title. MacKenzie had roughly 40 boys come out for tryouts late last month, which is down com-

pared to the last few seasons, and it’s still too early to tell if he might have a diamond in a rough or two. “I should have a better idea later this week [of] who might emerge as a pleasant surprise early on,” MacKenzie said. Varsity assistant coach John Bakopolus will be alongside MacKenzie once again on the bench this year. Dan Higgins will be the JV coach, and the freshman team will be headed up by Kevin Canty. MacKenzie will carry 13 players on the Varsity and 20 more between the freshman and JV squads.

OLA parishioner Gelotti receives Cheverus Award HISTORY | FROM PAGE 4


ick Gelotti, a longtime parishioner of Our Lady of the Assumption Parish (OLA) in Lynnfield, was bestowed the Bishop Cheverus Award medal by Cardinal Sean O’Malley on Sunday, December 3, at Our Lady Help of Christians Church in Newton. The Cheverus Award is given in recognition of exemplary yet unassuming service to the Church and God’s people. Gelotti has been an OLA member since 1950 and has served in many capacities over the years, including sacristan, altar server, lector, Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion, and funeral acolyte. When posed with the question of what he does for the parish, Dick’s own response gives insight into why he was chosen to receive this prestigious award: “Whatever anyone needs in order to give back to God for all that He has

Beacon Hill Roll Call By Bob Katzen THE HOUSE AND SENATE. There were no roll call votes in the House or Senate last week. This week, Beacon Hill Roll Call reports local senators’ roll call attendance records for the 2017 session through December 1. The Senate has held 313 roll call votes so far in 2017. We tabulate the number of roll calls on which each senator was present and voting and then calculate that number as a percentage of the total roll call votes held. That percentage is the number referred to as the roll call attendance record. In the 39-member Senate, 24 senators (61.5 percent) have 100 percent roll call attendance records. The senator who missed the most roll calls is Sen. Mike Barrett (D-Lexington) who missed 37 roll calls, (88.2 percent attendance record). Rounding out the top five worst attendance records: Sens. Linda Dorcena Forry (D-Boston) who missed 25 roll calls, (91.7 percent attendance); Marc Pacheco (D-Taunton) who missed 10 roll calls, (96.8 percent attendance); Mike Rush


(D-Boston) and Barbara L’Italien (D-Andover) who both missed 6 roll calls, (98.1 percent attendance). Beacon Hill Roll Call requested a statement from those five senators. Here are their responses. Barrett: “Due to my authorship of carbon pricing legislation (I truly authored it myself ) and my role as Senate Chair of the Joint Committee on Telecommunications, Utilities and Energy, I was given official observer status at this year’s U.N. Conference on Climate Change in Bonn. This is the successor meeting to the now-famous Paris Climate Talks of 2015.Attendance meant I missed the last two days of the session, chockablock with near-unanimous veto overrides, but in return I met and worked with observers and delegates from other ‘subnational’ jurisdictions around the world.Given the mounting squirreliness of national leaders, coalitions of subnational leaders are increasingly important.” Forry: “On September 28, 2017, I was unable to be pres-

ent for the entirety of the Senate’s full formal session where roll calls were held to override the governor’s vetoes to the fiscal year 2018 budget. The reason for this was a longplanned event taking place at the same time at Fenway Park. You may recall, this past Spring racial slurs were hurled at Adam Jones from the Baltimore Orioles by fans during a game in Boston. Since the incident, I’ve been working collaboratively with the Red Sox organization and Boston Chapter of the NAACP, along with the Celtics, Bruins, Patriots and Revolution teams to create the ‘Take the Lead’ Initiative. This important program works to educate the public and show racism and hate have no place in our community. The launch of the initiative was held on the same day and time as the session.” Pacheco: “These votes took place within a 3-hour period on the night of October 26th. Senate members were told that session would end at 7:00 p.m. Unfortunately, that ended up being a drastic underestimation - the session lasted until 1:30 a.m. I had to leave the chamber around 7:30 p.m., as I had to catch a 9:15 p.m. flight for an out-ofstate wedding. While I’m disappointed in the time crunch and unexpected delays of that night, these roll-calls occurred in the midst of a single 3-hour period, and my votes had no bearing on the enactment or rejection of the subject matter. I will be voting on the enactment stage of the process when the bill comes back to the Senate, and I look forward

On September 28th and November 9th we had a Veterans Committee hearing so he was back and forth so he missed #99, #100, #101 and #270.” L’Italien: “I was unfortunately unable to vote on six roll calls this session.” L’Italien went on to explain that there were several reasons for missing the six votes including the unexpected death of her mother on April 3; her service as a Massachusetts legislative delegate at the Government of Canada Rising State Leaders Tour; her attendance at the Women in Government Conference in Nevada; and her convening a mediation meeting between SEIU 509 and Class, Inc. to avert a large labor strike in the city of Lawrence. 2017 SENATORS’ ROLL CALL ATTENDANCE RECORD THROUGH DECEMBER 1 The percentage listed next to the senator’s name is the percentage of roll call votes for which the senator was present and voting.

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.

BUDGET | FROM PAGE 1 Boudreau said during the recent Budget Summit: MarketStreet Lynnfield can no longer be relied on for new growth revenue. “The days of big increases are long gone,” he said. Selectman Philip Crawford said the Fire Department should hold off on hiring anyone until there is enough data available to analyze the effectiveness of the new staffing model. Tetreault said additional funding will be needed for

Narcan, as his firefighters have been using it more frequently in response to opioid overdoses. In terms of capital expenditures, Tetreault said new personal protective clothing is needed at a cost of $15,750 as well as a new breathing air compressor for $46,000. He said the current compressor, which is used to fill firefighters’ oxygen tanks, is 20 years old and could go at any time. “The next tank it fills could be its last,” said Tetreault. Police Chief David Breen said he is planning to fill four

full-time positions and one part-time position. “We will be at full complement by this time next year,” he said. “We have a tremendous demand for details primarily because of MarketStreet.” Although he said there would be a salary increase of 7.3 percent for his patrol officers, Breen said the longevity pay would remain the same. “We’re actually getting younger,” he said. For capital expenses, Breen said he would like to replace one of two cruisers, both

He said other capital items include replacing the cruiser radar unit, which is three years beyond its useful life, replacing and adding cameras, replacing two cruiser computers, purchasing three more Breathalyzer tests and purchasing a license plate radar unit. The total for those requests is $31,800. DPW Director John Tomasz said he anticipates a 1.7 percent increase in his budget. “As far as changes in the bud-

Regarding capital requests, he said he would like to make upgrades to the Senior Center and purchase a new photocopier and an emergency backup generator. Tomasz also said that drainage has become a significant issue for the DPW. “There’s almost $1 million in drainage requests right now,” he said.

ax-deferred annuities are tax-favored products. They allow someone to invest a certain sum of money and let it grow tax-deferred until such time as the owner wishes to withdraw money, at which such time the earnings will be taxed. Having an understanding about annuities is vitally important because what might sound to be simple at first glance can become somewhat complicated. There are plenty of traps for the unwary, especially when an owner or annuitant dies. Since annuities have evolved over time to take advantage of whatever the Internal Revenue Code will allow, having the ability to pick the right annuity and arranging the parties involved in a manner that makes the most sense for today and for the future really can at times be a daunting task. Tax-deferred annuities generally fall into two categories: 1) annuitant-driven and 2) owner-driven. Annuitant-driven annuities are those that contractually pay a death benefit when the annuitant dies. When the annuitant dies, the contract terminates and the death benefit, if any, is paid to the contract’s designated beneficiaries. It should also be noted that these types of contracts will also pay a death benefit when the owner dies be-

cause federal law mandates that a complete distribution occur within five years of the death of any owner of an annuity contract. The annuitant is the person whose measuring life is used by the insurance company in order to determine future annuity payments. Owner-driven annuities, on the other hand, are those that pay a death benefit “only” when the owner of the contract dies. In these contracts, when the annuitant dies, the owner simply designates a new annuitant. The contract goes on without skipping a beat. Keep in mind that regardless of what type of annuity you are dealing with, it is the owner who controls the policy itself. If the annuitant and owner are different, the annuitant has no ownership rights in the contract. It is important to understand the difference between the two types of tax-deferred annuity contracts. Once you understand the difference, you might be able to better select the annuity that is right for you. Do you want a death benefit to be paid upon the annuitant’s death? Upon the owner’s death? You do have the right to choose. When the triggering life ends, a beneficiary will be named in the contract to receive the death benefit. Naming a beneficiary assures that the death benefit will not be paid to the decedent’s estate. If A owns a contract on B’s life and the contract is owner-driven, upon A’s death, the death benefit will be paid by the insurance company. If B is the beneficiary and also

the surviving spouse, then B has the choice of continuing the annuity contract in B’s own name and continuing with the tax deferral of interest that has built up since the policy was purchased. If the annuitant (in this case B) happened to die, the owner in this case has the right to simply select a new annuitant and the contract continues. In an annuity-driven contract, you would want to make A the owner and also the beneficiary. If B the annuitant dies, the contract will be paid to A, the owner. Although A will not be able to continue the contract, he will be able to collect on the annuity policy (original purchase price plus accrued interest). The arrangement of owner, annuitant and beneficiary on any annuity contract does really matter. It requires considerable knowledge and expertise when the annuity is purchased as part of an estate plan/Medicaid plan/financial plan. Be sure to update the beneficiary designations for any annuity policy, life insurance policy, IRA account, 401(k) account, etc., that you might own in order that your intended beneficiaries receive the funds in the account upon your death. In some cases, a living trust is the current beneficiary as you might have had minor children at the time of purchase. If the children are now mature adults, it might be time to name them as direct beneficiaries as opposed to the trust itself.
