Soderberg Insurance holds candy sale to support the homeless
e often remember the less fortunate during the holiday season. However, poverty and homelessness are with us every day of the year. At Soderberg Insurance Services, Inc. the staff reaches out to help the homeless every day. The Lynnfieldbased agency is selling delicious See’s chocolates in support of Boston’s oldest homeless shelter. Founded in 1899, Boston Rescue Mission provides not only a clean bed and a nutritious meal to those in need, but also rehabilitative counseling. Many individuals who fall into homelessness suffer with drug and alcohol addic-
tion. Boston Rescue Mission provides help to those who have lost their hope. “We have many visitors each day,” stated agency president, Kathryn Soderberg, CPCU. “All members of the Soderberg team introduce the fundraiser and the charity to the agency’s clients and visitors. Almost everyone supports the fundraiser, which brings us a lot of joy as we know we are raising money for a great cause.” The chocolates sell for $2.50 each. One hundred percent of the proceeds are donated directly to the charity. For Elba Reyna of Lynn and Maria Caraballo of Wakefield are both employed by Soderberg Insurance more information, visit www.

Town in no rush to fully fund OPEB/ pension accounts By Christopher Roberson
espite a combined liability of $59.9 million in the town’s Other Postemployment Benefits (OPEB) and pension accounts, there is no urgency to fully fund either one right now. The OPEB account provides benefits to retirees, such as medical and dental insurance, while the pension account is the source of the monthly checks that are sent out to each retiree. To w n A d m i n i s t r a t o r James Boudreau said Lynnfield has until 2030 to fully fund the pension account, which carried a liability of $29.1 million as of June 30, 2016. However, he said there is no funding schedule for the OPEB account, which carried a liability of $30.7 million. According to the town’s financial statements for 2016, $401,886 was allocated for OPEB and pensions. “It’s what the town could afford at the time,” said Boudreau. However, page 16 of the financial documents showed revenues totaling $55.5 million and expens-
es totaling $53.4 million, leaving $2.1 million in “excess revenues over expenditures.” Boudreau said the town’s OPEB account has a current balance of $934,000. “It’s on a pay-as-you-go basis; the goal is to put a little more money in every year,” he said. Town Accountant Julie McCarthy said the $59.9 million liability represents the total cost of OPEB and pensions. She also said the town has continued to increase the OPEB/pension allocation each year, adding that it used to be $100,000. “We’ve continued to increase it,” said McCarthy. However, McCarthy said the final figure is at the discretion of Boudreau and the Board of Selectmen. “We don’t have any kind of a dedicated plan for a certain amount,” she said. Despite the $934,000 in the OPEB account, McCarthy said upcoming retirees should not be concerned about there being a lack of money to fund their pension and benefits packages.

has increased from $7.1 million to $9.2 million. Vincent Inglese, president of the Friends of the Lynnfield Rail Trail, said the $7.1 million figure was only a “rough estimate” that project engineer WorldTech submitted to the State Department of Transportation (MassDOT). “As part of the preliminar y design submission, WorldTech submitted an estimate for construction,” said Inglese. “MassDOT then reviewed the submission and adjusted accordingly. The price will likely change again as the project advances and the design is more defined
and additional project details are developed.” However, Inglese remained confident that state and federal funds will be available by 2020 “to meet 100 percent of constructions costs.” Since the state has already provided funding for the preliminary design phase, Inglese said an additional $300,000 will be required from both Wakefield and Lynnfield to fund the final design phase. In addition, approval for the rail trail passed by one vote at Lynnfield’s Town Meeting in April. According to the Wakefield/ Lynnfield MA Rail Trail Initiative Facebook Page, the project is included in the state’s Transportation Improvement Plan for fiscal years 2020 and 2021. The required 25 percent of the Design and Engineering Plan has also been submitted
to the Department of Transportation for review. “So, hang in there for a few more years and we will soon have another place to bicycle or walk with our kids or pets besides Lake [Quannapowitt],” representatives said in a Facebook posting. “This is truly an example of the old adage: good things take time.” Originating in Wakefield, the 4.4-mile trail will cross into Lynnfield at Reedy Meadow along the old Newburyport Railroad bed. After exiting the meadow, the trail will pass Reedy Meadow Golf Course and Pillings Pond before crossing Pillings Pond Road at the Lynnfield/Peabody line. In a November 2015 interview, Janet Long, then-chairman of the Lynnfield Rail Trail Committee, said she was leery about taking the trail

~The Advocate Asks
Police Capt. Karl Johnson reacts to recent fentanyl incident In this week’s Advocate Asks interview, we asked Police Capt. Karl Johnson for his reaction to the recent fentanyl incident in Chelsea in which three police officers were taken to the hospital after being exposed to the drug. In response, the Chelsea Police Department will be purchasing an array of protective equipment for its officers. Q: What is your opinion about what happened with three police officers in Chelsea? A: The Chelsea incident is unfortunate; I’m glad to see that those three officers emerged
RAIL TRAIL | FROM PAGE 2 through the meadow. In the 25 years that the railroad has been out of use, the Saugus River has washed over the tracks and has submerged approximately 400 feet of the rail bed in about six inches of water. Although there had been discussions about a rail trail going back to the late-1970s, it was not until 2004 that the idea gained enough traction to form a committee.
from it without serious harm and I applaud the Chelsea Police Department’s proactive efforts to safeguard its members by acquiring protective gear. Q: The Chelsea Police Department will be investing in masks, eyewear and gloves to protect its officers. Do you believe the same precautions are needed for your department? A: For law enforcement generally, it serves as a cautionary tale, a reminder that we cannot possibly prepare for every contingency, our best efforts notwithstanding.
Although the tracks are abandoned, the property is still owned by the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority and TR Advisors. Therefore, Long said a 99year lease needed to be negotiated by officials in Wakefield and Lynnfield. However, Inglese said a lease agreement has yet to be agreed upon. The state also earmarked $39.7 million to be spent from 2015 to 2019 on pedestrian and bike trails.
Q: Is there an estimate in terms of what these items might cost? A: I can’t speak to the cost of such protective gear, but I can tell you that disposable gloves, for example, are used frequently and are worth every penny spent on their purchase. Q: Do your officers encounter situations involving fentanyl on a regular basis? A: The majority of the Lynnfield Police Department’s officers are EMTs. Each cruiser is equipped with a medical bag containing gloves and masks, along with the other equip-

Q: What safety precautions do you currently have in place? A: While fentanyl is not encountered here on a regular basis, its regional presence seems to be growing. It only stands to reason that we’ll see an increase in proportion to the trend.
Q: Do you see fentanyl as a major threat going forward? A: Lynnfield officers are regularly updated on incidents such as the Chelsea situation through roll call training and email distribution of outside training materials. Protective gear has been standard for several years and new gear is always considered.
However, not ever yone has been pleased about the plans for a rail trail, as Long said a group of residents banded together to form Citizens of Lynnfield Against the Rail Trail. “We are convinced that this project will create new costs and dangers for Lynnfield and for our fellow residents,” they said in a statement on their website, http://www. notforlynnfield.com. The group had no further comments at this time.

Family-owned furniture store continues to thrive on Rt. 1 By Christopher Roberson

Three more arrests made in Northeast fraud ring By Christopher Roberson
n Aug. 4, Lynnfield Police took three more individuals into custody suspected of participating in a New York-based fraud ring. The suspects are Marvin Silver, 29, of Brooklyn, N.Y., David Duke, 30, of Queens, N.Y., and Demetrius Cummings, 48, also of Brooklyn. They join two other suspects – Tajane Vivas, 20, and Joseph Palaco, 27, both of Bronx, N.Y. – who were arrested on July 3 and are believed to have been involved in the same fraudulent operation. According to police, the group of fraudsters have hacked into residents’ email and Amazon accounts to order items which are then picked up at the United Parcel Service (UPS) store on Kimball Lane.

Silver, Duke and Cummings have been arraigned in Peabody District Court. According to the Clerk’s Office, Cummings is scheduled to be back in court for a pretrial hearing on Aug. 28. The decisions regarding Silver and Duke have not yet been rendered. UPS Spokesman Matthew O’Connor said it is possible that the fraudulent transactions did not take place at the UPS store, but rather at one of the company’s distribution centers. He also said all UPS employees are trained to check an individual’s identification before releasing a package. However, he said, there is little the company can do beyond that point, adding that any fraudulent transactions must be settled between the merchant, the police and the consumer. “That’s out of our scope of visibility,” said O’Connor. a.m. Senate 11:13 a.m. to12:37 p.m. FRI.AUGUST 4 No House session No Senate session Bob Katzen welcomes feedback at firstname.lastname@example.org

For example a breakfast sandwich with bacon, egg, and cheese biscuit has about 475 calories, 30 fat grams, and 1,260 milligrams of sodium; lower the fat, sugar and salt by choosing a breakfast sandwich with egg and cheese on an English muffin which has appreciably much less fat and salt. To keep the lean advantage of sandwiches – lean burgers, chicken, or fish and boost the contribution of other nutrients, consider adding tomato slices and other vegetables. Skip the super-sized sandwiches and mayonnaise based spreads and tartar sauce. Instead use mustard, relish, or ketchup. Add a slice of cheese as a calcium source and flavor. A tossed salad with a tablespoon of dressing can be a satisfying accompaniment. Liquid Calories When summer heat calls for a “Cool me down” treat, reach for a small ice cream cone or frozen yogurt. Typically the first few bites of a food taste best. Sugary beverages and alcoholic beverages are other nutritional pitfalls. Cocktails and lemonades to stay cool can easily add calories. A 12-ounce serving of Arnold Palmer tea (1/2 tea and ½ lemonade) contains 138 calories of which 128 calories are from sugar. The calories in a martini differ based on the size of the cocktail, the alcohol content of the liquor and the ingredients used in the mix. For example a vodka martini, made with a mix of 1

Dear Savvy Senior, I’m interested in downsizing my smartphone wireless plan, and am looking for the best low cost options. I use my phone primarily for talking and texting, but also need some cellular data for checking my email and other functions when I’m away from WiFi. What can you tell me? Senior Saver Dear Saver, There are several great low-cost deals I can recommend for older smartphone users who are looking to save some money by paring down their bloated cell phone plan. Here are three good options to consider. Republic Wireless If you’re an Android smartphone user, Republic Wireless (RepublicWireless.com) offers one of the cheapest deals available for light data users. Republic uses a mixture of Wi-Fi and cellular networks – Sprint and T-Mobile specifically – to transmit calls, texts and data. This patented technology automatically offloads as much as possible to WiFi when available, so you’ll consume less data than you would with traditional carriers. Republic’s no contract service plans with cellular data start at only $20 per month for unlimited talk, text and 1 gigabyte (GB) of data. If you need more data, their $30 per month plan gets you 2GB, and $45/month buys you 4GB. How much data do you need? The best way to find out is to check your current phone bills. The average smartphone owner uses between 2GB to 3GB of data each month, but most older smartphone users use less than 1GB. To use Republic you’ll need a compatible Android phone (you can’t currently use Apple iPhones), or you can buy a new phone through the company. It currently offers eight Android phones with prices starting at $99. Consumer Cellular Another excellent low-cost option for lighter data users, and one that caters to older adults is Consumer Cellular (ConsumerCellular.com, 888-532-5366). Rated the number one wireless service by Consumer Reports seven years running, Consumer Cellular offers a variety of “pay for what you need” talk and connect plans that let’s you choose exactly what you want. Their talk plans start at $10 per month plus 25 cents per minute used for infrequent callers, or $15/month for 250 minutes, $20/month for 1,500 minutes, and $30/month for unlimited minutes. And their connect plans for text messages and cellular data run $2.50 per month for 300 texts and 30 megabytes (MB) of data, $5/month for 2,000 text and 200MB data, $10/month for unlimited texts and 500MB, $20/month for unlimited texts and 1.5GB, $30/month unlimited texts and 3GB, and $40/month for unlimited texts and 5GB. Consumer Cellular, which offers 5 percent monthly fee discounts to AARP members, also lets you bring your own smartphone by offering free SIM cards. Or, you can purchase a wide variety of Android and Apple iPhones along with the seniorfriendly Doro 824 SmartEasy for $100. Lifeline Program If your income is low enough, another option to check into is the Lifeline Assistance Program. This is a federal program that provides a $9.25 monthly subsidy that could go towards your smartphone service. To qualify, you’ll need to show that your annual household income is at or below 135 percent of the Federal Poverty Guidelines – which is $16,281 for one person, or $21,924 for two. Or, that you’re receiving certain types of government benefits, such as Medicaid, food stamps, SSI, public housing assistance, veterans pension or survivor’s pension benefit, or live on federally recognized Tribal lands. To apply, contact a wireless provider in your area that participates in the Lifeline program (see LifelineSupport.org or call 800-234-9473) and ask for an application form. Be sure to check all wireless providers in your state because some offer better services – like a free smartphone, monthly talk time minutes, unlimited texting and some cellular data – than others. Send your senior questions to: Savvy Senior, P.O. Box 5443, Norman, OK 73070, or visit SavvySenior.org. Jim Miller is a contributor to the NBC Today show and author of “The Savvy Senior” book.

Lynnfield Rotary Club’s annual Golf Tournament a great success
he Lynnfield Rotary Club had yet another successful Golf Tournament this year. We saw a significant jump in sponsorship with over seven new hole sponsors this year – and 46 total new hole sponsors over the past three years. Fun was had by all followed by a great meal by Countryside Deli and auction by local Attorney Jay Kimball. The winning team was led by Tom Adamczyk, the former chair of the Lynnfield Rotary Golf Tournament, who has kindly continued to support the event. The Lynnfield Rotary Club is thankful for all the players and sponsors who supported the event. A very special thanks to MarketStreet of Lynnfield for continuously being the tournament’s Corporate Sponsor over the past many years. Herb Chambers Flagship Motorcars donated a hole -in-one contest with the winner to receive a free two-year lease on a new Mercedes; unfortunately, no golfer was so lucky. In addition, special thanks to this year’s Major Sponsors: The Savings Bank; The Kimball Family; First Financial Trust; JM Electrical Company, Inc.; Eastern Bank of Lynnfield; Herb Chambers of Flagship Motorcars; Schumacher Dental; Attorney Jay J. Curley, Esq., of Wakefield; and Wakefield Co-operative Bank. As usual, Donnie Lyons, the Golf Pro at Ready Meadow, ensured the course was in fantastic shape. Thank you to him and his crew for all of their work and support. This is traditionally the club’s largest fundraiser, and this year did not disappoint as we raised nearly $12,000.00 after all expenses being paid. The Lynnfield Rotary Club focuses its support on local needs in Lynnfield. The club also supports charitable needs in surrounding communities and internationally. The club is looking to focus its efforts on supporting the Lynnfield War Memorial initiative along with rebuilding Partridge Island Trail. Thank you to the supporters and players who made this event so successful. If you are interested in participating or supporting next year’s event, please contact the Rotary Golf Chairman, Jason Kimball, at his law office at 781-334-3200.
THE ADVOCATE HOROSCOPE Aries (March 21st-April 20th): Some big changes have been in the air- but they aren’t necessarily about you. People may be moving, changing jobs or even breaking up. Be there for those you lovebut claim sometime next week to treat yourself good! Taurus (April 21st-May 20th): A couple of arguments may have occurred recently- and problems are likely rooted in your work/family balance. Everybody needs you! But put your foot down and claim back some of your time, the demands for attention are likely ridiculous anyways. Even if they don’t agree with you now, they will come around soon. Gemini (May 21st-June 20th): As Mercury starts to go retrograde this week, be prepared to hold your tongue! Word vomit, or mindless jib jab that can get you in trouble, is likely to come out. Play the role of the listener for a couple days, and you won’t make a mess! Cancer (June 21st-July 22nd): The full moon along with the eclipse likely shook you up a bit. Its energies are so influential to you as a Cancer, and now is a good time to face any of the ugly emotions that came up. Next weekend double check all plans- the retrograde could cause some communication mishaps! Leo (July 23rd-August 22nd): Think, think, think before making any big decisions as the week ends. Go by YOUR gut, not what you think others want. Plans might not go accordingly next week at workbut it’s going to take some teamwork to solve problems, not just one leader! Virgo (August 23rd-September 22rd): This weekend a couple of word slips and small lies are likely. You won’t be feeling 100% yourself, and later might be thinking “why did I say that?” Let it go Virgo!! We all act weird sometimes, and you’re the least likely to. Have a strange day; it’s okay. Libra (September 23th-October 22rd): “Take a chance on me,” by ABBA should be your theme song this weekend. There are likely many potential new friends and connections already around youthat have likely also been trying to strike your fancy! Be open, give them a chance, and you are going to be surprised… Scorpio (October 23rd-November 22nd): If you didn’t get to the beach this week, get there next week! Doesn’t have to be the beach, but a nice body of water for you to do nothing by and let go of all the moon’s emotional influence lately. You’re feeling it, stress is high, this too shall pass! Claim your you time. Sagittarius (November 23rd-December 21st): As tensions come and go this weekend and into next week thanks to Mercury retrograde, hold back from responding right away. Thinking before speaking is key to getting through these tough weeks, and you don’t need to be carrying any extra guilt! Capricorn (December22nd- January 19th): You may suddenly be the great advisor at work next week. You advice will be coveted, and almost demanded at certain points. Help with what you can, but be careful of stepping on any superiors’ feet by accident. Watch over your belonging next week, the retrograde wants to swipe your sunglasses, wallet or any other small necessity! Aquarius (January 20th- February 19th): The full moon in your sign brought up some big changes, that probably still have to actually be put in motion. Don’t ignore the signs and realities you faced last week, if something isn’t okay it just isn’t okay- now do something! Back up files/important documents on your computer next week just to be safe! Pisces (February 20th- March 20th): Stop seeking, start listening Pisces! Whatever it is that your heart is desiring, chase it. Asking people what they think you should do, or researching isn’t going to give you the long term answer you need. That’s within you (cue cheesy movie music.) Don’t take a risk at work next week, time and money are limited.

O B I T UA R I E S Arthur H. “Hank” Hanson, Jr.
ge 90, beloved husband of Mary (Meoli) Hanson, died peacefully on Monday July 31, 2017 at the Lahey Medical Center Hospital in Burlington, following an extended illness, while in the comforting presence of his family. Born in Revere, Hank was the son of Arthur H. and Gertrude (Miller) Hanson, Sr. He was predeceased by siblings
Raymond, Francis, Walter, Dorothy, Frederick, Charles, George and Lawrence. He grew up in Everett and graduated from Everett Vocational High School. He enlisted in the United States Navy during World War II and was stationed in the Philippines. As a skilled mechanic, in 1952 he founded H & H Industrial Service, Inc. in Woburn where he and Mary worked as a team until they sold the business in 1996. Hank was a former member of the Masonic Lodge in Everett, and loved to bowl with his brother-in-law, Arthur Lynch. He enjoyed being outdoors,
whether golfing at the Thomson Country Club in North Reading or tending roses and growing the tallest tomato plants in Lynnfield. He had a gift for illustrating etched drawings on wood canvas, especially eagles, lighthouses, and Disney characters. Most especially, he was dedicated to family and cherished his grandchildren. He looked forward to Friday night card games with pizza or Chinese food with son, Eric, and family and Sunday phone calls with son, Skip, which usually ended in fits of laughter. He
