Town’s budget is Dolan’s top priority By Christopher Roberson


pon taking office on Feb. 5, newly hired Town Administrator Robert Dolan will immediately sink his teeth into this year’s budget, which is sure to be tight with the drop-off in new growth revenue from MarketStreet Lynnfield. “I will immediately need to bring department heads together to be updated on the status of the fiscal year 2019 budget and the current budget,” he said. “This is a critical time of year for any community as the state formulates their budget and the towns work toward that common goal.” Based on prior experience, Dolan is confident that he can

make the budget work. “In Melrose, I have balanced 16 budgets in a city that is 96 percent residential with a very small commercial tax base,” he said. Dolan said he partnered with Lynnfield officials several times during his 16-year tenure as the mayor of Melrose. However, he said that does not take away from the fact that he will still be the new guy. “It is critically important for me to get to know the community culture,” said Dolan. “That involves a longer process of getting to know the citizens of Lynnfield.” Without ample information, Dolan did not wish to comment on matters such as the Perley Burrill property, the Wakefield-

Lynnfield Rail Trail and the possibility of a new library. However, he said he has been involved with similar ventures in Mel-

rose.“As mayor of Melrose, I have been involved in many initiatives regarding recreational development, historic and natural preservation [and] private development as well as building new municipal facilities,” said Dolan. “My goal is to bring my experience to benefit the town of Lynnfield.” Regarding the possibility of hiring a town planner, Dolan said he has plenty of prior knowledge that he could share with the Board of Selectmen and the Planning Board should the town decide to move in that direction. Going forward, Dolan said “transparency and good communication” are essential in terms of problem-solving and

the overall effort of moving the town forward. “I look forward to working closely with the Board of Selectmen to help them continue their impressive efforts to strengthen communication with the community and implement transparency measures to keep all of the residents fully informed on the important work of the town of Lynnfield,”he said. Dolan also vowed to pull from his experience as an elected official as well as from his work in the private and nonprofit sectors to better Lynnfield’s“already stellar reputation.” “From that process, longer-range goals will emerge, and working together we will take on those challenges,” he said.

hree days into the New Year, Lynnfield was bombarded by a blizzard that brought screaming winds, single-digit temperatures and more than one foot of snow across the region. John Tomasz, director of the Depar tment of Pub lic Works (DPW), said there were no surprises with the storm, which struck on Jan. 4. “It was just about what was predicted,” he said. Tomasz said his department responded with 14 of its own employees, 44 independent contractors and 120 tons of road salt. “Overall we had very few issues

with the vehicles and equipment during the storm,” said Tomasz. The wind was the top opponent as it howled at more than 50 miles per hour. “The wind made it very frustrating,” said Tomasz. “It seemed that within 20 minutes after clearing a street, the wind had blown back the snow, making it look like we were never there.” From a financial standpoint, Tomasz said the town had already exceeded its $120,000 snow and ice budget by $16,000. “That last storm cost us approximately $80,000,” he said.

Planning Board budget includes town planner position By Christopher Roberson


n his recent budget pitch to the Board of Selectmen, Planning Board Chairman Brian Charville said Lynnfield is in need of a town planner. During the board’s Jan. 8 meeting, he requested that $65,000 be allocated to fund the salary of a town planner. “It would be appropriate to have a true town planner,” said Charville, adding that he has studied the town planner positions in Georgetown and Carlisle. Charville also said a town planner could take the lead in completing the town’s Master Plan. “A town planner could be spearheading that process,” he said. Charville said a town planner could help facilitate the situation with the Zepaj Lane Subdivision, which was started without the consent of the Planning Board and has since

been put on hold in accordance with a Cease and Desist Order. “We’re currently behind the eight ball,” said Charville. Board of Selectmen Chairman Christopher Barrett said he supports the idea for a town planner. “I think this is an important position to look at,” he said, adding that the Planning Board should not have to decipher every land use issue. “That’s a lot of work for this volunteer board to do.” Board of Selectmen Vice Chairman Richard Dalton said the hiring of a town planner is “long overdue,” adding that the proposed $65,000 salary is “right on the mark.” He said having a town planner would also ensure that Lynnfield does not miss out any state and federal grants. “It’s almost impossible to keep up with the variety of things out there, just on the

state level,” said Dalton. However, Selectman Philip Crawford disagreed, saying Lynnfield is “pretty much built out.” Therefore, there is not a pressing need for a town planner. “It just seems kind of counter-productive to me,” he said. Conservation Commission budget Conservation Commission Chairman Paul Martindale was also hand to make his budget presentation. He said the commission’s operating budget for fiscal year 2019 is $92,063, a modest increase of $297 over fiscal year 2018. “It’s not very much different from last year,” said Martindale. He also said seven candidates came forward to apply for the conservation administrator position, which offers a salary of $64,826. The position will be vacant

at the end of the month, as current Conser vation Administrator Betty Adelson is retiring. From the original group of candidates, Martindale said, “three or four” looked promising. “We’re not calling in anyone without a master’s degree and at least four to five years of experience,” he said. “We’re looking for someone who is well-versed.” Regarding the capital budget, Martindale said the cost of treating Pillings Pond has continued to rise and is now $23,500, a $5,000 increase over last year. Martindale said the pond is treated every year to remove algae, phosphates and nitrates. Although alum has been used in the treatment process, he said switching to copper sulfate could bring the cost back down to $18,000. “We’re looking for an alternative,” said Martindale.

Other news In other news, interim Town Administrator Robert Curtin said the state aid figures should be released by Jan. 20; however, he does not expect a sizable increase this year. He also said this year’s new growth projection has fallen to $325,000. “That would be the lowest new growth figure since FY12,” said Curtin. In contrast, last year’s figure was $436,000. Curtin said the Department of Public Works responded well to the Jan. 4 blizzard that left Lynnfield with more than a foot of snow and temperatures in the single digits. “We had quickly accumulating snow; the sidewalks are still being plowed,” he said. Curtin also said ice dams caused leaks in parts of the library. “We’re hoping it will dry out and there won’t be any permanent damage,” he said.

The Early Voting Law, which has been in effect since 2014, requires that every community offer a 12-day window for residents to cast their ballots early. According to the Secretary of State’s Office, more than 22 percent of the registered voters took advantage of early voting in 2016.

Trio of new classes proposed at Lynnfield High School By Christopher Roberson


igh School Principal Robert Cleary recently proposed adding three new classes to the Program of Studies at his school. During the School Committee’s Jan. 9 meeting, Cleary presented the idea of an Advanced Placement (AP) art class, an AP course in European history and a meditation and mindfulness class. Cleary said that although the AP art class would not include any exams, students would be responsible for submitting a sizable portfolio at the end of the school year. “We have some super talented artistic kids,” he said. Cleary said AP European history and AP classes in general are especially popular with his seniors. “When it comes to senior year, the numbers are really blowing up,” he said. “We have students who will take multiple AP classes their senior year.” Cleary said that right now, only informal sessions are available to help keep students focused throughout the day.

Therefore, a meditation and mindfulness class would certainly be beneficial. “You’re either fading towards the end of the day or you’re yoo-hoo and chips at lunch,” he said. Cleary also said students would take the class on a pass/ fail basis so to eliminate any stress about a letter grade. However, a class format would provide the structure that is currently lacking. “Putting it in a class gives it a little more weight,” he said. Cleary also spoke about the high school’s study abroad program Educatius, which was adopted five years ago. Since then, Cleary said, the program typically hosts an average of six students from countries such as Brazil, Spain, Germany, Italy and South Korea. He said class placement can be challenging. As an example, Cleary said, in many foreign countries the term mathematics is used to cover every kind of math. Therefore, he said, students may or may not already have knowledge of subjects like geometry, algebra or precalculus. “The first day or so,

they’re bombarded with testing,” he said. “Guidance does a dynamite job.” In addition, Cleary said there have been a few instances when the interview process has gotten tricky, particularly when it came to the student’s personal statement about why they want to attend Lynnfield High School. “Sometimes you’ll get a personal statement that clearly wasn’t written by a student,” he said, adding that in those cases, Skype interviews are conducted.

Legislation moves annual town election to second Tuesday in April


overnor Charlie Baker has signed legislation that amends the town of Lynnfield’s charter by changing the date of the annual town election from the second Monday in April to the second Tuesday in April, effective this year. The date change was initially approved at the October 16, 2017, Annual Town Meeting by a vote of 168-7. The proposal, which was filed as Article 10 on the Town Meeting warrant, passed after receiving a favorable recommendation from both the Board of Selectmen and the Finance Committee.

House Minority Leader Bradley H. Jones, Jr. (R-North Reading) filed the home rule petition on the town’s behalf, and he worked closely with former Senator Thomas M. McGee (DLynn) to advance it through the House and Senate and on to Governor Baker’s desk. The signing of the bill allows Town Clerk Trudy Reid to move forward with the release of nomination papers for the 2018 town election. “I’m pleased we were able to expedite the bill’s passage to accommodate the wishes of the town’s voters and to meet

the timeline established by the town clerk for issuing nomination papers,” said Representative Jones. This year’s town election is now scheduled for Tuesday, April 10.

Who filed my tax return?

s you prepare to file your tax return in the upcoming months, one problem that has grown is thieves stealing identities to file fraudulent tax returns. Taxpayers find out this has occurred when they file their tax return and are then informed a tax return has already been filed using your social security number. How is your financial data obtained and what do you do? The IRS reports your data is stolen 91% of the time with “Spear Phishing Emails.” This is when an individual receives an email from someone who appears to be a trusted source, when in reality it is a criminal. You open the attachment to the email, which allows the thief to obtain your passwords or downloads malware that tracks your keystrokes or obtains control of your computer. Once the thief secures your financial data, he or she utilizes it to obtain fraudulent bank accounts and credit cards, and to file tax returns. If your financial data is stolen and a fraudulent tax return was filed using your social security number, you should: 1. File a complaint with the FTC at identitytheft. gov; 2. Place a fraud alert with the three major credit bureaus: Equifax, 888-7660008, Experian, 888-3973742, and TransUnion, 800680-7289; 3. File Identity Theft Affidavit Form 14039 with the IRS; 4. You will need to paper file your tax return (federal and state); 5. Request a 6-digit Identity Protection

Thomas D. Terranova

Pin from the IRS at; 6. Notify the Massachusetts Department of Revenue at 617-887-6367 or via MassTaxConnect; 7. Notify the Massachusetts Attorney General; 8. File a Police report; 9. Obtain a credit report from each Credit Bureau to close all fraudulent accounts. After you report Identity Theft to the IRS, you can expect the following: You will paper file your tax return with Identity Theft Affidavit Form 14039, as you will not be able to file electronically. The IRS will issue you an acknowledgement letter. Your tax return will be processed by the Identity Theft Victim Assistance department by staff that has specialized training. Your case should be finalized between 120 to

180 days. This is a long and arduous process, so please be patient. How to avoid a data breach: Always be vigilant with emailing anyone your financial data, including your social security number. When receiving an email request be sure to open the detailed email address to determine whether the email is accurate. If you have any doubt regarding an emailed request, call the person who is requesting the data. Your computer should utilize software and hardware that will keep it secure, such as security software, firewall and malware/ virus software. Use robust passwords and back up your computer regularly. Identity Theft is a burdensome situation that will try your patience every step of the way. What you will need to keep in mind is that once you report to a government agency that your identity was stolen, each government agency employee will require you to prove your identity with every telephone call. To relieve some of the stress, you should consider writing to government agencies when needed. Please be vigilant with your financial data and only submit it to a known source.

By Helen Breen


n the early morning of July 28, 1897, the body of John Gallo was found, burned beyond recognition, by distraught coworkers at the W.W. Phillips farm in Lynnfield (now the site of Edwards Avenue off Main Street near the present Route 128). Gallo, a recent Italian immigrant, was a quiet, diligent employee who earned $1.50 per day, preferring to take his pay in five dollar bills at the end of each month. Gallo also possessed three $20 gold pieces that he had earned from a previous job. Foul play was immediately suspected. The flames shooting from the small shack that Gallo inhabited alone at the back of the farm could be seen for miles. The position and dismemberment of the body suggested that the victim had been murdered before the conflagration. The charred corpse lay several feet from the bed “with the head back in the room toward the bed, not falling forward as a person naturally would if trying to escape from a burning room.” An empty kerosene oil can, usually kept near the stove, was found next to the body. Another crime in Wakefield Curiously, another crime had been reported that morning in nearby Wakefield. Alfred C. Williams allegedly had been attacked and robbed near his rooming house. Williams maintained that he had fought off his assailant but had been knocked unconscious and robbed of his watch and a small amount of money. He was then thrown down on the banks of Lake Quannapowitt. Williams explained that the blood stains on his clothing were from his attacker’s nose. Police were skeptical of his story and held him for questioning. Curiously, he “had more money in

his possession after that crime than he did before.”On the previous day, the suspect did not have enough to buy a meal or “pay a five-cent car fare.”But that morning Williams had paid his back board and made other purchases. Police found $75 in five dollar bills on his person. When police learned that Williams had previously worked on the Phillips farm with Gallo and “knew the habits of the deceased,” his room was searched. A bloodstained coat and vest were found, along with two $20 gold pieces. Williams was arrested and charged with the murder of John Gallo. The trial The case against Williams was strictly circumstantial – his inconsistent stories, his bloody clothing, his familiarity with Gallo’s habits, and his possession of the money and gold piec-

tion was credited to Charles B. Shaw of Springfield. The execution Alfred C. Williams was hanged for his crime in the yard of Salem

HISTORY | FROM PAGE 5 Jail on October 7, 1898. According to reports, his was the last execution for Essex County held in the facility. Apparently “all previous hangings were done in the open for all who cared to view.” Mercifully, at 10:01 a.m., “the trap was sprung and Williams dropped six feet … his neck was broken and he died within seconds.” Williams maintained his innocence until the bitter end. But the community felt that justice had been served for the vile murder of John Gallo in Lynnfield. “In the center is a trap, about five feet square, securely fastened, when in position by a spring and two bolts,” according to a local newspaper that followed Williams’s trial and execution at Salem Jail in 1898.

Pioneers hockey team cruises past Peabody, 5-1 By Joe Mitchell


he Lynnfield High School hockey team took care of business once again last Saturday against non-league Peabody, 5-1. They are now 7-1 overall and 3-0 in the Cape Ann League. “It was nice to get everybody on the ice,” said coach Jon Gardner after the Peabody game. “We’re obviously thrilled with our record, and we don’t have moral victories anymore, but right now we want them to pass the eyeball test. We have been coming out flat in games lately, and also haven’t scored even strength goals on a consistent basis. We as a coach staff would like to see them improve in those two areas.” With that said, the Pioneers jumped all over Peabody early on with three first-period goals. Joey Mack netted the

first lamplighter from George Deroche and Jack Hammersley. Deroche accounted for the second tally assisted by John Simonetti and Jaret Simpson. Deroche scored again to close out the period on a power play from Mack. The Tanners trimmed the deficit to two halfway through the second period, but Tyler Murphy got it back, while shorthanded. Sophomore Danny Mack was credited with the helper on this scoring play. Murphy closed out the scoring in this game on a power play assisted by Cooper Marengi and Simpson. It was the team’s second power play goal of the game, its 10th already on the season. Aidan Kelly started in goal Tyler Murphy closed out the scoring during the Pioneers’ 5-1 once again, making 11 stops victory over Peabody last Saturday with a power play assisted before freshman Jake DeBeneby Cooper Marengi and Simpson.

the third stanza, and he ended up compiling three saves while making his varsity debut. The schedule is now starting to heat up for the surging Pioneers. They took on Newburyport on Jan. 10 (after press deadline) in a battle for first place in the Cape Ann League. The locals will then take on Triton on Saturday at Peabody, starting at noon. Not trying to look ahead, but coach Gardner’s crew will have a brutal stretch of six out of seven games in February that will be played on the road, including a trip to Gloucester to take on the Fishermen. “We want at least three more wins before looking ahead to establish a higher seed in the Division 2 North state tournament come March,” said Gardner. But for now, they are just taking it one game at a time.

Youthful Lynnfield wrestlers remain competitive, still get beaten in the numbers game Wilkinson, McCullough bring home championship titles from Cohasset Tournament By Joe Mitchell


he youthful Lynnfield High School co-op wrestling team won six of 11 matches against Triton on Jan. 3 and led at one point, 35-29. Unfortunately, the team’s lack of overall depth caused them to forfeit three weight classes to turn their fortunes around in a negative direction, and they ended up losing the match, 47-35. “Obviously, the outcome is frustrating,” said coach Craig Stone, “but the effort out there was still very noticeable and positive. We just don’t have any depth [numbers] in some weight classes, and an injury or absence has a huge effect on the outcome of a match.” Dylan Reardon (145 pounds, win by disqualification), Anthony Wilkinson (170 pounds, 3:20, win by fall), Sean McCullough (182 pounds, 216, win by technical fall), Kevin Farrelly (195 pounds, 0:28, win by fall), Stuart Glover (120 pounds, 5:04, win by fall) and Timmy Leggett (132 pounds, 1:14, win by fall) recorded the Lynnfield wins against the Vikings. Last Saturday, Jan. 6, Stone took his team to the Cape to participate in the Cohasset

Tournament. Teams were allowed to enter two wrestlers in each weight class in this tournament. The LynnfieldNorth Reading co-op boys finished third out of seven clubs, while placing 12 wrestlers and also putting five in the finals. Here’s a look at the road to the finals for Lynnfield’s

two champions in Cohasset: Wilkinson, a senior, beat Liam Sullivan of Rockland by pin (1:22) in the quarterfinals, beat David Burke of Cohasset by pin in the semifinals (0:36) and in the finals beat Isiah Honneycutt of Nauset by pin after trailing after two periods, 5-0, to secure his first

career tournament win. McCullough, a sophomore, beat Nick Kullman of Wilmington by pin (1:06) in the quarterfinals, beat Bobby Fryar of TriCounty by pin (5:05) in the semifinals and then defeated Stephen Zinkel of Hanover, a returning sectional finisher, by pin in the finals (3:07).

“I was really excited with our performance in this tournament,” Stone said. “Placing 12 of 17 wrestlers that we brought and putting five in the finals was a real plus for our program. Hopefully, we can build on that momentum throughout the rest of the season.”

Linden Tree Coffeehouse to hold 2018 Winter Potpourri on January 27


he Linden Tree Coffee house continues its 33nd year of acoustic music concerts with an extra night of music. Join us for Winter Potpourri, 2018 an evening of discovering new talent!Eight local singer/songwriters will play two songs each, and one of these folks will be chosen to open a show during the 2018-2019 season. Audience input will play a big part in the decision making process, so please come help us make this choice, while enjoying new music and new faces. The evening will be hosted by Wakefield singer/songwriter Kirsten Manville who will perform a few of the songs from her new album, Some People Sing. Kirsten creates songs that feel like they may have come straight from journal entries - deceptively simple lyrics paint pictures, tell stories, and evoke a range of emotions. Some People Sing has been hailed as one of the finest albums of 2017 by Metronome Magazine reviewer Douglas Sloan. Entertainment will also include a 30-minute set by one of the brightest songwriters and storytellers Jim Trick. He is a brilliant communicator who draws the audience into his world. Joyful, sincere, and magnetic are words that have been frequently used to describe Jim. His acoustic guitar playing creates well thought out support for his carefully crafted lyrics.His latest album, “Further From the Tree” shows why he is one of the most important voices in independent music today. Competing at this year’s Potpourriwill be Andy & Judy,Peg Espinola, Charlie Ortolani, Rachel Marie, Folkapotamus, Tom Smith, Kim Moburg, and Quentin Callewaert. These talented performers represent a wide

Jim Trick range of acoustic folk from traditional to contemporary. Andy & Judy are a Boston area folk duo who perform regularly at libraries, coffeehouses and concert venues throughout the Northeast, Mid-Atlantic, Midwest, and Great Lakes regions. Their original, lyric driven songs feature close harmonies blending Judy’s evocative alto and Andy’s rich baritone. Beginning instrumentally with a classic folk guitar base, Andy & Judy have deepened their sound through the addition of mandolin, banjo, piano, harmonica, ukulele, and percussion. Even though their songwriting style has its roots firmly planted in traditional and folk music, the influences of country, gospel and blues can be heard in their songs. Peg Espinola was born in NY and started playing guitar with Peggy and Mike Seeger back in her, and their, teens, but never wrote a song till the summer of 2003 at WUMB’s Summer Acoustic Music Week, where she

took a songwriting course with the legendary Bob Franke.She thought it would be her one and only but once that gate was open, ideas for songs kept coming.Peg has just released herfourth CD, The Truth About Eighty, on CDBaby. Charlie Ortolani has been playing guitar solo or in bands since the Johnson administration.In the 1970’s he played in top 40 and rockabilly bands in Boston music clubs and around New England before moving into country music in the 1980’s. The 1990’s brought more rockabilly as well, with the CD of one of the bands (Boston Rockabilly Music Conspiracy) being released by a roots record label in Europe. The 2000’s brought more country, including freelance work as a bassist as well as a guitarist. He has been fortunate to have played in some prominent venues such as the Hatch Shell (four times), the Portsmouth Music Hall, the Cape Cod Melody Tent & the Hampton Beach Casino, bands that have openedfor Brenda Lee, Willie Nelson and Loretta Lynn among other country artists, and in folk groups or solo has opened for Bill Staines, Jez Lowe and the Bad Pennies. Rachel Marie is an unapologetically honest writer of pieces that are relevant, relatable, and far-reaching. The social awareness of folk meets the introspection of the singer-songwriter tradition with a moderate dose of snark, and an endearingly quirky stage presence as honest as her songs keeps audiences charmed. This

Kim Moberg Bethlehem, PA native has made regular appearances at Musikfest and at the acclaimed folk venue Godfrey Daniels where she has shared the stage with Antje Duvekot and the Kennedys. Folkapotamus is a Boston area based folk duo consisting of Penni Hart and Tony Trites. They have been performing together since 2011. Their emotional lyrics and beautiful melodies draw listeners in. Penni and Tony have performed at various coffeehouses and folk venues in New England and the Midwest.. Folkapotamus’s second full album, “Middle of Nowhere,”was released in 2017. It contains six new compositions as well as a classic folk song, a traditional folk song, and a favorite rock song done in their own folky style. Tom Smith grew up in rural Pennsylvania in a family where music was part of the fabric of everyday life. As a young man living at the epicenter of the folk-quake that was Cambridge, MA in the 1960’s, Tom solidified what has become a life-long love of self-made music. Now a folk veteran of over thirty-five years, Tom performs at festivals, coffeehouses, schools, and concerts throughout the Northeastern United States to audiences large and small, young and old. K i m M o b e rg : K i m w a s born in Juneau Alaska, the daughter of a classical pianist mother of Tlingit descent and a US Coast Guard verteran father from Kansas. Music has always been an integral part of Kim’s life, helping her to adjust during the

frequent moves associated with growing up in a military family.A self taught finger pick style guitarist, Kim has an introspective interpretation of songs and especially drawn to musical stories that tug at feelings of melancholy, heartbreak and healing. Her original songs speak to to reunion, awakening and social consciousness.Kim’s debut CD titled “Above Ground” produced by Grammy-nominated producer Jon Evans, was release world-wide in September 2017. Seventeen year old Quentin Callewaert has only been on the music scene for a few years now, but he is creating a major buzz as one of the most gifted guitarists around. Classically trained, Quentin’s interest in fingerstyle acoustic guitar was inspired by Doc Watson, Merle Travis and Tommy Emmanuel. He is also a gifted singer with a refreshingly bluesy voice that compliments his blend of folk, gospel and bluegrass. It’s been a very busy year for this singer/guitarist, performing full shows in venues all across the North East. He is very proud to have been invited to perform at the Philadelphia Folk Festival this past summer. Tickets will be $5.00 and will be sold at the door beginning at 7pm. NOTE the earlier show time is 7:30pm. The Linden Tree Coffee house is located at the UU Church, 326 Main St. Wakefield, MA.For more information: www.LindenTreeCoffeehouse.orgor call 781 246 2836.

Violinist Robyn Bollinger and Pianist Elizabeth Schumann in Chameleon Up Close Recital on February 4

Robyn Bollinger and Pianist Elizabeth Schumann


he Chameleon Arts Ensemble presents Chameleon Up Close featuring violinist Robyn Bollinger and pianist Elizabeth Schumann, on Sunday, February 4, 2018, 4 PM, at Mary Norton Hall at Old South Church, 645 Boylston Street, Boston. The program of “rule breakers and statement makers” includes Arvo Pärt’s Fratres; Beethoven’s Sonata No. 7 in c minor, Op. 30, No. 2; Erik Satie’s Choses vues à droite et à gauche (sans lunettes); and Shostakovich’s austere and muscular Sonata, Op. 134. The Boston Musical Intelligencer noted Ms. Bollinger’s “outgoing play electrified the air.” The Washington Post described Ms. Schumann as “deft, relentless, and devastatingly good.” Chameleon is currently in the midst of its 20th anniversary season. Our popular recital series gives audiences members the opportunity to see and hear Chameleon’s superb artists in an informal and “up close” way. The Boston Musical Intelligencer praised “the artfully chosen works,” hailed “the two stars treated us to a thrilling performance,” and noted “one felt charmed even before a sound was produced.” This year’s series will take place at Mary Norton Hall on the second floor of Old South Church, transformed into an intimate cabaret setting with table seating. The programs are hosted by Artistic Director Deborah Boldin and feature our hallmark mix of classic, neglected and contemporary works. Singular voices who pushed the boundaries of counterpoint, harmony, and form provide the unifying thread for this program, with two jewels of the violin and piano repertoire and two miniatures of significant impact. Over the course of his ten sonatas, Beethoven rede fined the violin/piano genre by pushing the expressive boundaries of the duo and placing the instruments on equal footing. The Sonata No. 7 in c minor, Op. 30, No. 2 dates from 1802, the same

year of his famous Heiligenstadt Testament and an incredibly transformative period in Beethoven’s creative life. One of the grandest sonatas in the violinist’s repertoire, the c minor is a taut, tempestuous work of near-symphonic scope that stands at the threshold of the Romantic era. Dmitri Shostakovich’s Violin Sonata, Op. 134 was completed in the autumn of 1968 for the 60th birthday of his friend, the acclaimed violinist David Oistrakh. It is an austere and muscular work of enormous scope and impact. Shostakovich commented “there may be only a few notes, but there is a lot of music.” Indeed, these “few” notes traverse an intense range of moods - from a sardonic march and fantastical, grotesque dance, to ethereal night-music and a Bachinspired passacaglia - resulting in one of the finest works from Shostakovich’s last creative period. There are few living composers who are as admired as Estonian Arvo Pärt, and fewer still whose popularity extend beyond the classical music world. Fratres (1977) is an early example of his self-titled “Tintinnabuli-style” of composition. Tintinnabuli comes from the Latin word meaning bell. It is heavily influenced by Gregorian chant, evokes an atmosphere of meditation, and sounds at once modern and ancient. Fratres exists in numerous instrumentations from duos to string and saxophone quartets to cello octet and wind band. The version for violin and piano was premiered by violinist Gidon Kremer in 1980 at the Salzburg Festival. Rounding out the program is the only published violin and piano work by composer, provocateur, and musical maverick Erik Satie. Satie was aligned with the Dada and Surrealist movements in art, and his music - typically filled with irreverence and parody - represented a break with French Romanticism and stood in purposeful opposition to Debussy. Choses vues à droite et à gauche

(sans lunettes) or “Things seen left to right (without glasses)” was composed in 1914. It is a satirical miniature Baroque suite complete with droll titles - “Choral hypocrite” - and sarcastic directions for the players - “with the hand on the conscience.” Now celebrating its 20th anniversary season, Chameleon Arts Ensemble has distinguished itself as Boston’s finest, most versatile chamber ensemble. Artistic Director Deborah Boldin has earned unqualified praise for integrating old and new repertoire into unexpected chamber music programs that are themselves works of art. The Boston Globe noted “Its concerts are the slow food of local chamber music, events where sounds and sensibilities, rhapsody and reverie, old music and new, are balanced with care and a sense of individual voice.” Violinist Robyn Bollinger has received top prizes at many international competitions, among them the International Fritz Kreisler Competition, the Yehudi Menuhin International Competition, and the Louis Spohr International Competition. She is a recipient of a prestigious 2016 Grant from the Leonore Annenberg Fellowship Fund for her multimedia performance project entitled CIACCONA: The Bass of Time. Her many festival appearances include Marlboro Music, Grand Tetons and Aspen Music Festivals, and the Lake Champlain Chamber Music Festival. Elizabeth Schumann has won more than 25 prizes in national and international piano competitions including the Bösendorfer, Cleveland, and Hilton Head International Piano Competitions. She was also the recipient of the prestigious Gilmore Young Artists Award and was highlighted in a PBS Television documentary on the Gilmore Festival. Her many solo and chamber music appearances include Australia’s Huntington Festival, the Kennedy Center, and Ravinia’s Rising Stars Series.

Subchapter S Corp Basis


ubchapter S corporations (S Corporations as they are most often referred to as) are pass through entities that “pass” the income earned or losses generated from the ongoing business to the shareholders themselves. Each shareholder reports his or her proportionate share of income or loss on his or her individual income tax return. It is important to know that an S Corporation shareholder’s losses that he or she can deduct on his or her individual income tax return are limited to the shareholder’s “basis” in the corporation. How does a shareholder acquire basis in an S Corporation? A shareholder can acquire basis through the original purchase of the stock itself or through subsequent equity investments. Net income for the year also increases a shareholder’s stock basis in an S Corporation. Stockholder distributions (i.e. withdrawals that are non-salary) serve to reduce stockholder basis. Losses for the year also serve to reduce the shareholder’s basis in the S Corporation. A shareholder can also increase his or her stockholder basis by lending money to the S Corporation. It is important to note that nondividend distributions (dis-

tributions other than from accumulated earnings and profits) reduce stockholder basis but to not reduce “debt” basis. A shareholder’s deductible loss cannot exceed his or her basis in stock and indebtedness of the S Corporation to the shareholder. Keeping track of basis is important because it is the only way of determining whether or not the shareholder can deduct his or her share of the S Corporation’s loss on his or her individual income tax return. If the loss cannot be currently deducted due to a lack of basis, the shareholder can carry forward the unused loss indefinitely to future tax years. However, if the business closes or is sold, the shareholder may not be able to deduct those unused losses. For debt basis to be validated, the debt must run directly from the shareholder to the S Corporation. The debt must also be bona fide according to federal tax principles and IRS regulations. So the facts and circumstances will dictate. The shareholder must have a real expectation of repayment and intent to enforce the collection efforts against the S Corporation in the event of a default on the loan. There must be a true debtor-creditor relationship. The S Corporation and shareholder should create a promissory note with a fixed payment schedule along with a fair market rate of interest similar to what the shareholder would charge to an unrelated party. The transaction, in other words, should be at arms- length.

Researching Tools For starters, you can find lots of information and articles on the countries and cities you’re interested in retiring to at websites like and Another good tip is to talk or network with some expatriates who have already made the move you’re thinking about making. They can give you tips and suggestions on many issues, as well as the advantages and disadvantages and dayto-day reality of living in a particular country. Some popular sites for finding expat resources are and But before committing to location, most experts recommend that you visit multiple times during different seasons to see whether you can envision yourself living there and not just exploring the place as a tourist. Also, consider these financial factors: Cost of living: Retiring abroad used to be seen as a surefire way to live beyond your means, and for some countries it still is. But the U.S. dollar isn’t what it used to be, so your money may not stretch as far as you think. See for a country-by-country cost of living comparison. Taxes: No matter what foreign country you decide to retire in, as long as you’re a U.S. citizen you must file an annual tax return reporting all income above certain minimums, not matter where it’s earned. For details see the IRS publication 54, “Tax Guide for U.S. Citizens and Resident Aliens Abroad” at Health care: Most U.S. health insurance companies do not provide coverage outside the U.S., nor does Medicare. Check with the embassy (see of your destination country to see how you can be covered as a foreign resident. Many countries provide government-sponsored health care that’s inexpensive, accessible and just as good as what you get in the states, or you may want to buy a policy through Medibroker ( or Bupa Global ( Also know that most people who retire abroad eventually return to the U.S., so you should consider paying your Medicare Part B premiums. If you drop and resume Part B, or delay initial enrollment, you’ll pay a 10 percent premium penalty for every 12-month period in which you could have been enrolled. Banking: Opening or maintaining a bank account abroad has become more difficult because of the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act, a U.S. law designed to prevent Americans from hiding assets abroad. So, you may have to establish a savings and checking account with an institution that has international reach like Citibank. And/or consider maintaining your U.S. bank account that you can access online, and get U.S. credit and debit cards that don’t charge foreign transaction fees. Rent versus buy: Buying a home in a foreign country can be complicated, so it’s usually cheaper and simpler to rent, unless you know you’re going to live there for a long time. Social Security: You can receive your monthly Social Security benefits almost anywhere you live around the world (see Your benefits can be deposited into your bank account either in the U.S. or in your new home country, but there are some exceptions. The U.S. State Department offers a handy checklist that can help you think through all the issues on retiring abroad. To access it visit and search for “retirement abroad.” Send your senior questions to: Savvy Senior, P.O.

the kids. Known as Papa to his four grandchildren, Jim adored watching Patriots games with the kids. He never missed cheering the kids on at school or sporting events and enjoyed taking the family to York Beach, Maine on vacation.

On the Move in 2018!


ill 2018 be the year that you outgrow your current space and trade up to a larger home? Or will it be the year when you finally decide to move ahead with plans to downsize? Whatever type of move you are looking to make in the coming months, you can be sure that you won’t be alone. According to forecasts from some of the nation’s top housing experts, 2018 will prove to be another robust year for real estate activity that will result in a record amount of sales.

We can attest that low interest rates and an expanding economy have combined to create significant momentum in our local real estate market. We are seeing growing consumer demand across all price ranges and for every type of housing.

However, despite the optimistic outlook, our region and local real estate market will not be without challenges. Affordability, lack of new construction and demographic trends are all concerns. However, the biggest obstacle holding most people back is the lack of inventory. Overall, our state’s housing inventory has declined for 70 consecutive months.

Many individuals who would like to move ahead with their plans and put their homes on the market are hesitant given that there are so few purchase options. Its hard to move forward without first knowing where you are going to go. In order to successfully overcome this and other problems, working with a knowledgeable and experienced agent can make all the difference. We had some great success stories in 2017, helping our clients achieve their goals and dreams.

If you are thinking about a move in 2018 give any of our agents a call to get the best advice and planning options. We stand ready to assist should you need any guidance navigating the real estate market anywhere on the North Shore. Finally, we would like to thank everyone we worked with to buy and sell homes over the past year. Thanks for making 2018 one of our best so far.

“...2018 will prove to be another robust year for real estate activity that will result in a record amount of sales.”

We would also like to recognize the tremendous support we consistently receive from out past customers. Thank you for the many referrals!

We have come a long way since we first opened our doors in 1952 but have never lost sight of our core mission to provide the very best personal care to our clients. We are extremely fortunate to have earned the trust of generations of families. Thank You! Hope to see you in 2018!
