Four apprehended in Congressman Moulton hears from Route 1 gun bust constituents at Town Hall meeting By Christopher Roberson 48-hour investigation by the Peabody Police DepartA ment ended with four individuals taken into custody for the illegal possession of a firearm. Other charges included the possession of a firearm with a defaced serial number and the illegal possession of ammunition. Officers and detectives initially responded to the Newbury Street Inn at 170 Newbury St. on July 30 at 1:22 p.m. after receiving a report that a gun had been left in one of the rooms. Upon finding a .25-caliber semiautomatic handgun in the room, police and detectives obtained the name of the last person to rent the room and lured the suspect back to the inn on Aug. 1 at 4:40 p.m. Police said that upon arrival, the suspect was found to be traveling with three other individuals. While searching the vehicle, police recovered a loaded 9mm Luger handgun. In response, police arrested Erick Alberto Lopez, 29, of 23 Stone Pl., Apt. 2 in Lynn; Salvador Gutierrez, 19, of 20B Memorial Rd. in Somerville; Eliseo Vaquerano, 18, of 181 Central Ave. in Chelsea; and a 17-year-old. Lopez, Gutierrez and Vaquerano were held pending arraignment in Peabody District Court on Aug. 2. The juvenile suspect also remained in custody pending arraignment in Salem Juvenile Court on Aug. 2. Assisting in the investigation were Det. Sgt. Brendan O’Brien, Detectives DJ Murphy, David Murphy and Taryn Brotherton, Sgt. Doug Marcus, Officers Brian Richard, James Festa and Michael Muse, K-9 Caine and his handler, Officer Corey Salvo. Chief Thomas Griffin lauded the officers and detectives for their “diligence and cooperative efforts,” which resulted in confiscating “two dangerous firearms from suspects not legally licensed to possess them.”

By Christopher Roberson
uring his recent Town Hall meeting at North Shore Community College in Lynn, U.S. Congressman Seth Moulton fielded questions ranging from Social Security to the opioid epidemic to public transportation. “Will I see the Blue Line come to Lynn in my lifetime?” asked Lynn resident John Russell at the Aug. 1 meeting. Moulton said the best way to
improve the state’s economy is to put more money into public transportation. “This is the kind of investment we need,” he said. Although Moulton could not provide a timeline for extending the Blue Line, he said it is certainly one of his goals.“I can’t tell you when it will get done, but I can sure as hell tell you that I want to get it done,” he said. Resident Donald Parker asked what is being done to ensure that the U.S. Department of
Transportation pays back the loan that it received from the Social Security Administration to help fund the approximately $26 billion Federal-Aid Highway Act in the 1950s.“I’m not familiar with that particular loan; I wasn’t around in 1950 sir,”said Moulton. He said the Social Security cap needs to be pulled. By removing the cap, Moulton said, even “people with a lot of money”

Police find missing child with possible autism By Christopher Roberson
n July 27 at 1:24 p.m., Peabody Police officers responded due to a report about a young girl who had gone missing from 161 Main St. after she was dropped off by the bus at 12:15 p.m. Capt. Dennis Bonaiuto said
officers found the girl 30 minutes later at a nearby hair salon. “They located the person relatively quickly,” he said. “We take all missing person complaints very seriously.” Bonaiuto also said the girl may have been autistic. In those cases, he said, police can use the characteristics of the
disability as a tool for locating the missing person. With that knowledge, Bonaiuto said, officers are able to roughly pinpoint where the person may have gone based on the places or things that could capture the person’s attention. “We do examine the disability,” he said.

Consider Beth Lindstrom for U.S. Senate Dear Editor, As a local elected official and recent Republican nominee for Essex County Sheriff, Iâ€™ve had the pleasure of meeting many residents across the North Shore and have become attuned to their thoughts on what they look for in a good representative. For that reason, Iâ€™d like to take this opportunity to remind voters of an important primary election taking place the day after Labor Day on Tuesday, Sept.
4 for U.S. Senate. For voters turned off by the current hyper-partisan pandering, I ask you to consider supporting Beth Lindstrom for U.S. Senate.

She, like us, is frustrated by the inability of career politicians to get anything done. She will advocate for Congressional reform, the freezing of salaries for Con-

By Al Terminiello, Jr.
heodore Palmisano was known to all his friends as â€œTeddyâ€?. He spent most of his life involved in music, his first love. Teddy had his own music shop, where he taught music and repaired instruments. He played in local bands his entire life, as well as solo performances. He sang and played lead guitar, but also could play bass and other instruments if needed. In 2014 Ted joined Inclusion, with his life long friends from Revere as lead guitarist with Bob Capoccia and backing vocalist to Ernie Mottola. Al Terminiello, Jr. on bass guitar, Kerry Leppo on keyboards, Tony Alosi on drums and Frank Tavano on rhythm guitar. Ted left the band with Ernie Mottola to play other venues, but both kept close ties to the band. Teddyâ€™s health started to fail rapidly over the past year with multiple complications, his longtime friend Bob Capoccia kept close tabs on him until his death in December of 2017. Wanting to do something for his friend, Capoccia and the now Decades of Rock, adding Chaz Mackin and Gardner Trask to the band put together a fundraiser in Revere with the help of Commander Dennis Moschella. This was to help with the cost of a headstone at Holy Cross Cemetery. Local musicians joined with the Decades of Rock in June for a tremendous afternoon of music and friendship, remembering Theodore Palmisano. The event was success, donations
coming from across the city and a packed house of friends and musicians from all over the North Shore enjoyed the very best in local music from friends of Teddy. Bob Capoccia and the Decades of Rock want to thank all the musicians that turned out to make the event a success and the crew of volunteers and donors that made it possible to purchase the headstone. Teddy will be missed, but as long as there is music his spirit will live on in Rock nâ€™ Roll.

Moulton said the Republicans on Capitol Hill are not helping matters by implementing treatment programs without any funding. “If you don’t fund the treatment programs, it’s not going to make a difference,”he said. A Peabody resident said she has been living with brain damage following a car accident. In addition to not being able to get a job, she was also denied disability compensation despite
going through the courts and the Appeal Counsel.“I have multiple doctors who have deemed that I’m totally disabled, and the judge just ignored that; it’s been very frustrating,” she said. Although he said the law failed this particular resident, Moulton urged constituents not to get the wrong idea about Social Security employees. “They really do want to help, they really do care,” he said. Moulton also spoke about his
Too Long; Didn’t Read (TL;DR) Act, which he introduced on March 15. “The idea of this bill came from a constituent,” he said.

Champions trail Swampscott in NSBL semifinal series By Greg Phipps
f not for a major late-inning rally in Game 2 of their semifinal series against the Swampscott Sox, the Peabody Champions, after a regular season in which they compiled a leaguebest 17-5-1 record, may very well have been swept out of this year’s North Shore Baseball League (NSBL) playoffs. But as it stood on Tuesday, the No. 1 seeded Champions were facing a 2-1 deficit with the fourth contest set for Wednesday in Swampscott and, if necessary, a fifth game scheduled for Thursday at Twi Field in Danvers. Swampscott, which finished in seventh place during the regular campaign with a 10-14 mark, eliminated Peabody from last year’s postseason tournament and were on the verge of repeating that feat this time around. The Sox romped to a 13-1 win in Game 1 last Saturday and crushed the Champions, 10-0, in Monday’s third tilt, which ended after five innings

due to the mercy rule. In between, the Champions needed a late-game comeback to pull out an 8-7 triumph on Sunday at Swampscott Middle School Field. Swampscott slugger Elvis Rodriguez was the biggest damage-doer, driving in six runs with three hits in Sunday’s contest. His rocket three-run blast into the woods beyond the centerfield fence gave the Sox
sacrifice fly. In the bottom half of the frame, Rodriguez stroked a two-run single to bring the Sox within a run. But reliever Scott Weismann was able to get the final out and preserve the victory for starter Mike Gallo. Gallo battled his way through six and two-thirds innings and managed 11 strikeouts despite allowing seven runs. Robbie Sarmanian scored on a fielder’s choice in the second inning to
a 5-2 lead after five innings. The Champions pushed across a run in the top of the sixth on Derek Lyons’ RBI single to climb within 5-3. Peabody struck for five tallies in the seventh when Jon Cahill singled in a run and Mike Giardi walked with the bases loaded to tie it. Andrew O’Neill then doubled in two runs for a 7-5 lead. The game-winning insurance run came across on Lyons’
give the Champions a 1-0 lead. The Sox took a 2-1 edge before Peabody tied it when Giardi’s fourth-inning ground out scored Sarmanian. Outscored 23-1 in the two semifinal losses, the Champions, who were held to just one hit in Monday’s loss, were faced with having to take two in a row to advance to the league finals. Peabody got to the semifinal round by drub-
bing eighth-seeded Manchester by 10-0 and 12-0 scores in the best-of-three first round. Meanwhile seventh-seeded Swampscott pulled off an opening-round upset of the second-seeded North Shore Phillies. The Kingston Night Owls await the winner of the Swampscott-Peabody series. The Owls swept past Beverly, 3-0, in their semifinal clash.

LONG TERM CARE INSURANCE AND EXEMPTING THE HOME U
nder Massachusetts law, the home of a MassHealth resident owning a long-term care policy that meets the daily benefit minimum and pays out for at least 730 days, will not be counted in determining eligibility for benefits and will be exempt from estate recovery. MassHealth’s Estate Recovery Unit has the right to collect against the probate estate in order to recoup the amount it paid in benefits during the decedent’s lifetime. Homes are a non-countable asset for MassHealth eligibility as long as the equity in the home is less than $858,000 and the nursing home resident/applicant checks off the box on the MassHealth application stating that he or she “intends to return home”. The problem is when the home is in the nursing home resident/applicant’s name alone. In this case, the home will be part of the probate estate. Without a long term care policy meeting the minimum requirements, the home will be subject to the Estate Recovery Unit’s lien. A newly-issued long-term care policy must provide a daily benefit of at least $125 and for a minimum of 730 days. In 2013, the Massachusetts legislature enacted a new law which states that the minimum requirements must be met at the time of the purchase of the longterm care policy, not at the time of nursing home admission. Under the old law, if a policy holder used up the 730 days of coverage while receiving the care at home, there would be no coverage available for nursing home expenses which would put the home at risk of estate recovery. The Massachusetts legislature wanted to encourage people to purchase long-term care policies, not discourage them. The relevant law is found at Mass General Laws, Chapter 118E, Section 33. MassHealth has taken the position that there should be at least $1 left on the policy before transitioning to a nursing home for the home to avoid estate recovery. When attempting to avoid estate recovery against the home due to the fact that a long-term care policy is owned by the applicant meeting the minimum requirements, you must check off the box on the MassHealth application stating that you “do not’ intend to return home. In all other cases, you would check off the box stating that you “do” intend to return home in order to make the home non-countable for eligibility purposes. The applicant can only have $2,000 of countable assets in order to qualify. The home in this situation will quality for an exemption under the long-term care policy exception and there will be no limit on the amount of equity you can have in the home. There are older long-term care policies still in force that were purchased prior to March 15, 1999 that provided for only a $50/day benefit. Those policies still meet the minimum requirements in order to avoid estate recovery.
THE PEABODY ADVOCATE – Friday, August 10, 2018
THE HOUSE AND SENATE. Beacon Hill Roll Call records local senators and representatives’ votes on roll calls from the week of July 30-August 3. ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT (H 4868) House 151-0, Senate 37-0, approved and sent to Gov. Charlie Baker an economic development package including a sales tax holiday allowing consumers to buy most products that cost under $2,500 on Saturday, August 11 and Sunday, August 12 without paying the state’s 6.25 percent sales tax. Other provisions authorize $50 million for a grant program targeting coastal communities and create jobs in the maritime economy sector; $250 million for the MassWorks Infrastructure Program which provides a one-stop shop for municipalities and other eligible public entities seeking public infrastructure funding; and $12.5 million in capital dollars for MassVentures to continue providing competitive grants to Massachusetts-based companies commercializing technologies. Tax breaks in the package include tax credits to businesses to occupy vacant storefronts in downtown areas and the establishment of a $2.5 million Apprenticeship Tax Credit program for apprenticeships in computer occupations, healthcare and the manufacturing industry. Supporters said the bill would be a real shot in the arm for the state by stimulating the economy, creating jobs and making Massachusetts friendlier to business. “Too many families are struggling to make ends meet and too many workers are looking for work,” said Sen. Eric Lesser (D-Longmeadow), the sponsor of the package. “This bill is designed to rebalance the scales so that our economy works for everyone and fosters growth in every corner of our commonwealth. It will put people back to work rebuilding our roads and bridges and revitalizing our downtowns. And it will prepare the next generation with the skills needed to succeed in a changing economy.” (A “Yes” vote is for the package.) Rep. Theodore Speliotis Yes Rep. Thomas Walsh Yes Sen. Joan Lovely Yes REGULATION AND TAXING OF SHORTTERM RENTALS (H 4841) House 119-30, Senate 30-8, approved and sent to the governor a bill that extends the state’s current 5.7 percent hotel and motel tax and up to a 6 percent local option room occupancy tax to shortterm rentals oﬀered by Airbnb, HomeAway and VRBO while leaving the regulation of these rentals including registration, licensing and inspections up to local cities and towns. The measure also allows local cities and towns to impose a local impact fee of up to 3 percent on operators who rent out two or more professionally-managed short-term rental units within a municipality. Other provisions create a central state registry of short-term rentals and require that a city or town dedicate no less than 35 percent of revenue generated from the new local option fee to either aﬀordable housing or local infrastructure needs. Supporters said the bill strikes a balance and levels the playing ﬁeld of taxes and regulation of these untaxed and unregulated short-term rentals and hotels and motels that are currently regulated and taxed. Opponents said the bill is simply another example of an anti-business, unwarranted tax and overregulation by the state. Estimates are that the state will reap $34.5 million from the new taxes and local communities which impose the optional local tax will receive some $25.5 million. (A “Yes” vote is for the bill. A “No” vote is against it.) Rep. Theodore Speliotis Yes Rep. Thomas Walsh Yes Sen. Joan Lovely Yes AUTOMATIC VOTER REGISTRATION (H 4667) House 134-16, Senate 36-0, approved and sent to Gov. Baker a bill that would automatically register to vote a person who ﬁlls out an application with the Registry of Motor Vehicles (RMV) or MassHealth, unless the person opts out. Ofﬁcials at the RMV and MassHealth would be required to explain to each person that the transaction automatically registers them to vote, unless they opt out, and also inform them that non-citizens are ineligible to vote.
Beacon Hill Roll Call By Bob Katzen Supporters said an estimated 680,000 eligible voters in the Bay State who are not registered to vote. “Automatic Voter Registration will make voting more accurate, more secure, and more available to all,” said Pam Wilmot, Executive Director of Common Cause Massachusetts which was part of the coalition pushing for the bill. “That’s good for democracy, for election security, and for voters. Utilizing existing technology to modernize the voter registration process just is basic common sense.” “The FBI just arrested dozens of illegal immigrants who easily obtained Mass driver’s licenses with stolen identities,” said Rep. Shaunna O’Connell (R-Taunton). “Under this law, those felons would be automatically registered to vote. Furthermore, this law creates a burdensome unfunded mandate on cities and towns.” (A “Yes” vote is for the bill. A “No” vote is against it). Rep. Theodore Speliotis Yes Rep. Thomas Walsh Yes Sen. Joan Lovely Yes $2.2 BILLION FOR CLIMATE ADAPTATION AND ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION (H 4835) House 148-2, Senate 37-0, approved a bond bill allowing the state to borrow up to $2.2 billion for climate change adaptation, environmental and natural resource protection and investment in recreational assets. The package includes earmarks for hundreds of millions of dollars for hundreds of projects in legislators’ districts across the state — many of which will never be funded. The Baker administration ultimately decides which projects are affordable and actually get funded but it cannot fund most of them because the governor’s oﬃce is also required to adhere to the state’s annual bond borrowing cap. Provisions include $105 million for dam and ﬂood control projects; $160 million for roads and bridges; $60 million for the Massachusetts Clean Water Trust to improve water by providing low-interest loans to municipalities; $45 million for hazardous waste cleanup; and $15 million for the Electric Vehicle Incentive Program that gives grants to cities and towns, state agencies, and state universities to purchase electric vehicles and install charging station. “We’ve come out with a strong bond bill that funds necessary environmental investments across the state, including an agricultural estate tax credit, which aims to ensure a thriving agricultural economy here in Massachusetts, and investments in protecting our cities and towns,” said Rep. “Smitty” Pignatelli (D-Lenox), chairman of the Committee on Environment, Natural Resources and Agriculture. “This bond bill aims to preserve our land and restore dams and seawalls, which as we know, have suﬀered severe damage from storms over the years. I believe these eﬀorts will have a lasting impact throughout the commonwealth.” Neither of the two opponents of the bill responded to Beacon Hill Roll Call’s request for a statement from them.
(A “Yes” vote is for the package. A “No” vote is against it.) Rep. Theodore Speliotis Yes Rep. Thomas Walsh Yes Sen. Joan Lovely Yes OPIOIDS (H 4866) House 151-0, Senate on a voice vote without a roll call, approved and sent to Gov. Baker a bill aimed at combatting the opioid problem in the Bay State by addressing opioid addiction, prevention and treatment. The measure establishes a statewide standing order for Narcan, expanding access to this opioid overdose-reversing drug without an individual prescription; establishes a statewide program to provide remote consultations with primary care practices, nurse practitioners and other healthcare providers for persons over the age of 17 experiencing chronic pain; establishes a community-based behavioral health promotion and prevention trust fund to promote positive mental, emotional and behavioral health among children and young adults and to prevent substance use disorders among children and young adults; and establishes a center for police training in crisis intervention to serve as a clearinghouse for best practices in police response to people with mental illness and substance use disorders. Other provisions require most prescriptions for controlled substances be provided electronically; permit a patient to partially ﬁll a prescription for a schedule II substance and return to the original dispensing pharmacy for the remaining amount of the prescription, and prohibit the use of drug coupons for opiate drugs. “Despite eﬀorts to suppress the opioid crisis, families across the Commonwealth continue to lose their loved ones to substance use disorder,” said Sen. Cindy Friedman (D-Arlington), Senate Chair of the Committee on Mental Health, Substance Use and Recovery. “This legislation builds upon the work the state has done around opioid misuse and prevention and provides another set of tools to reduce harm, save lives and increase access to evidence-based treatment. We have a major epidemic on our hands and we have to use everything at our disposal to cure this disease.” “The Massachusetts Legislature has been steadfast and unwavering in the face of the relentless disease of addiction,” said Rep. Denise Garlick (D-Needham), House Chair of the Committee on Mental Health, Substance Use and Recovery. “This disease is a reality that people face every single day, but we are pouring our best expertise and resources into this ﬁght,” “We are in this for the long haul and we are not backing down – we are in this battle together to save lives.” (A “Yes” vote is for the bill.) Rep. Theodore Speliotis Yes Rep. Thomas Walsh Yes 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 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 July 30-August 3, the House met for a total of 25 hours and 24 minutes while the Senate met for a total of 28 hours and 32 minutes.
Mon. July 30 House 11:01 a.m. to 8:22 p.m. Senate 10:38 a.m. to 9:56 p.m. Tues. July 31 House 12:01 p.m. to 1:12 a.m. (Wednesday) Senate 11:02 a.m. to 1:20 a.m. (Wednesday)Wed.

Wh SSeniors Where i C Can G Gett H Help l With Home Chores and Small Jobs Dear Savvy Senior, What’s the best way to find good, trustworthy, qualified people who can help seniors with home chores or small jobs? Looking for Mom Dear Looking, Getting help at home for any number of household tasks is a lot easier than it use to be thanks to a number of web-based tools that can quickly and easily connect you and your mom to a wide variety of skilled, carefully vetted workers. Here’s what you should know. Finding Qualified Help One of the best ways to find qualified, reliable, trustworthy people that can help with home chores and other small jobs is through referrals from people you trust. But if your friends or family don’t have any recommendations, there are a number of online companies you can turn to now like TaskRabbit.com and Takl.com. These are on-demand service companies that can quickly and easily connect you to skilled workers to handle a wide variety of household chores and small jobs, like cleaning and housekeeping, moving and packing, lawn and yard cleanup, handyman tasks, grocery shopping, running errands, furniture assembly, picture hanging, closet organizing, and much more. TaskRabbit currently has more than 60,000 Taskers (workers) in 47 U.S. cities, while Takl currently serves 75 U.S. cities with around 35,000 workers. All you need to do is download their app, or go to their website, and select the service your mom wants done and set a time when she would like the worker to show up. The software then matches your request and provides you a list of qualified, feedback rated workers (including their hourly rate) from which to choose. Once the job is complete, payment is done through the company’s app. You should also know that all TaskerRabbit and Takl workers have to go through a thorough vetting process before they can join their respective company including extensive background checks. If, however, you can’t find a skilled worker through TaskRabbit or Takl, or if they don’t serve your area, another option is Amazon Home Services at Amazon.com/services. Like TaskRabbit and Takl, Amazon will connect you to qualified workers that handle dozens of household chores and other small jobs. Amazon also screens all workers through media searches, online interviews, reference checks, and background checks. And all experts need to have licenses and insurance. To purchase and book a service, you can either buy a pre-packaged service with a fixed price (like two hours of cleaning) or you can submit a custom request and receive estimates. When booking, you select three different dates and time frames and the pro confirms an appointment. All payment is done through your Amazon account. Need a Tradesman If your mom primarily needs of a tradesman like a plumber, electrician, painter, roofer or carpenter for home repairs or remodel projects, you should also check HomeAdvisor.com and AngiesList.com. Both of these sites can connect you with prescreened, customer-rated service professionals in your area for free. Senior Specific Another option you should know about is AskUmbrella.com, which is a fee-based membership service for seniors 60-plus that provides qualified, vetted workers to do small jobs in and around the house for only $16 per hour. Currently available in New York, they are expanding nationally over the next year. Lower-Income Option If your mom is on a tight budget, you should also contact her nearby Area Aging Agency (call 800-677-1116), who can refer you to services in her area, if available. For example, some communities have volunteer programs that provide chore and handyman services to help seniors in need. And some local non-profit’s offer residential repair services that offer seniors minor upgrades and adaptations to their homes.
