City celebrates changing of the guard Charest named City Council president By Christopher Roberson


fter a decisive win by Ward 4 Councillor Edward Charest in last November’s election, his colleagues agreed that he was best suited to be the City Council president in 2018. The results of the General Election showed that Charest received 1,134 votes while his opponent, Bukia Chalvire, received 571 votes. “I’m very excited and very honored,” said Charest following the city’s Inauguration Ceremony on Jan. 8. He was also slightly surprised. “A year ago, I had no thoughts and no intentions of being the council president,” he said. As the new leader, Charest said he wants the council to be welcoming not only to residents but to city employees. “We have great city workers; I want the public to know that,” he said. In addition, Charest said he intends to keep up with the is-

sues in Ward 4, such as the sale of J.B. Thomas Hospital and the water pressure problems in the Brooksby Farm neighborhood. Outgoing President Joel Saslaw will remain on the council for another two years representing Ward 5. “One year ago you put your

trust and faith in me to lead the City Council,” Saslaw said during the inauguration. “I promised that we would conduct the business of the city in an open and transparent way and I believe we did. Every person who wished to speak was granted that opportunity.” Looking back on 2017, Sa-

slaw spoke about events such as the Ball at the Mall and the U.S. Senior Open. He also highlighted the improvements that were made at the high school and the city’s recently paved roads. Saslaw then called attention to Peabody Square as the city delves into 2018. “Peabody

Square has continued its revitalization, and more restaurants and housing [are] yet to come,” he said. “The Black Box Theater is now within our sight, and it is just a matter of time before they have their grand opening.” Speaking about the latest happenings in Ward 5, Saslaw said the revitalization project at Bonkers Plaza is “well underway” and the Sprinter Commercial Truck Dealership on Route 1 is “fully under construction.” “So as you can see, as usual, Peabody is moving forward,” he said. Saslaw also shared a message for the Peabody Municipal Light Plant (PMLP): “To our fellow PMLP commissioners who are loved and endeared by all, the citizens of Peabody just have two words for you: Cable TV.” New Councillor-at-Large Ryan Melville said Peabody Pride was in the air throughout the inauguration. “I am looking forward to working with all of the elected officials. I believe the mayor and council president will set forth a formidable agenda,” he said. New School Committee Member Andrew Arnotis said he “can’t wait to get to work.” “It took months of hard work to get to tonight, and I am incredibly grateful to the people of Peabody for giving me this opportunity,” said Arnotis. “I would also like to thank my fellow committee members for the warm welcome and the opportunity to serve as secretary.” Returning School Committee Member Beverley Griffin Dunne said she appreciated the recognition that was given to outgoing City Councillors Thomas Walsh, Barry Sinewitz and Michael Garabedian, adding that they served for a combined total of nearly 50 years. “The Inauguration Ceremony was an upbeat and uplifting evening,” she said. Mayor Edward Bettencourt said he is proud of the prog-

accreditation from the Massachusetts Police Accreditation Commission is considered a very significant accomplishment; it is a recognition that is highly viewed by the law enforcement communi-

City offers shelter from extreme cold By Christopher Roberson


n response to last week’s frigid temperatures, city officials made every effort to

ensure that no one was literally left out in the cold. However, they only had a handful of takers. “During last week’s extreme

weather, we provided shelter to five individuals,” said Sharon Cameron, director of Peabody’s Health and Human Services Department. “Members of the Homelessness Task Force as well as the Peabody Police Department have done direct outreach to individuals at risk to inform them of the shelter location and hours of operation.” Although no deaths were reported, Cameron said that anyone who remained outside took a significant gamble with life. “The risk of hypothermia and frostbite to those individuals living outdoors is serious,” she said. Cameron also said the city conducts a census each year to gauge the number of homeless individuals. This year’s count will be held on Jan. 31. “Last year’s census identified 15 homeless individuals in Peabody,” she said. “Over the past year, many of those individuals, approximately eight or nine, have been housed.”

State Legislature asked to refund early voting costs By Christopher Roberson


he 296 communities that collectively spent $1,063,978 to fund early voting for the 2016 General Election could be getting their money back. Within the total figure, Lynnfield spent $1,819, Peabody spent $4,531 and Saugus did not incur any expense. Officials from Bump’s office said the expenses were certified through an electronic survey that was sent to every city and town clerk in the Common-

wealth. In February 2017, the Division of Local Mandates (DLM) determined that under the Local Mandate Law, the state cannot require cities and towns to fund state programs such as early voting. Established in 1980 as part of Proposition 2 ½, the DLM acts as a watchdog to ensure that communities are not shouldering expenses that should be covered by the state. As a result, 675 petitions have been submitted to the DLM during the past 37 years. From the total number of pe-

titions, the DLM has rendered 436 decisions. Seventy-nine of them have been in favor of the municipality and have resulted in the return of approximately $343 million. “Early voting is an important addition to our democratic processes and funding the expenses incurred by our municipalities will make it that much stronger,�State Auditor Suzanne Bump said in her Jan. 8 letter to the Massachusetts Legislature. “We want to work with you to set

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.

Thomas Terranova

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; 2. Place a fraud alert with the three major credit bureaus: Equifax, 888-766-0008, Experian, 888-397-3742, and TransUnion, 800-680-7289; 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 Pin from the IRS at; 6. Notify the Massachusetts Department of Revenue at 617887-6367 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,

Lady Tanners suffer second loss to Danvers F

or the second time this season, the Peabody girls found themselves falling short against the Danvers Falcons in NEC action last week. Despite another double-double effort from Catherine Manning (10 points and 10 rebounds) and 10 points from Jordan Muse, the Tanners ended up on the losing end of a 54-47 score. Colleen Crotty drilled two 3-pointers, and Jonalyn Carpenter grabbed six rebounds and played strong defense, according to head coach Stan McKeen. “We got down in the third quarter but the kids never quit,” McKeen told the press after the game. “We got it down to six points. I have to give the kids a lot of credit. That’s a positive we can take moving forward.” The loss dropped Peabody to 1-3 overall. The Tanners played at Saugus on Tuesday and travel to take on Lynn Classical this Friday (7 p.m.).

Tanners Swimming & Diving’s first loss of the season, 99-85 By Maureen Shea


anners Swimming and Diving fell short of Marblehead on Jan. 9 at the Torigian Family YMCA with a score of 99-85. Avery Langone finished third in diving, with teammate Malakey McAdams placing fifth in only his second showing this season. Tanner swimmers won the 200 Medley Relay, consisting of Kirsten Currie, Michaelena Teague, William Connolly and Anthony Minichillo. Accompanying Currie was the team of Lauren MacPhail, Cana Teague and Stephanie McLean to take first in the final event, the 400 Freestyle Relay. Individual event winners include Connolly (50- and 100-yard freestyle). Second-place finishers helped rack up points for the Tanners, chasing Marblehead through the last event. Second-place finalists include Currie (200 Individual Medley – qualifying for States with a 2:23.03, and the 100 Butterfly, a sectionals cut), Minichillo (50 Freestyle) and Michaelena Teague (100 Breaststroke). “I'm so proud of all of these athletes. They work very hard at practice, and tonight was just amazing to watch,” said Coach Maureen Shea about her nail-biting exhibition meet against Marblehead. The Tanners swim again this Thursday the 11th at home against Lynn Classical at 7:00 p.m.

Tanners boys basketball regroups after tough loss to Everett By Greg Phipps


he Peabody boys’basketball team would just as soon forget Monday night’s blowout loss at Everett. Tuesday’s Northeastern Conference matchup against the Saugus Sachems turned out to be the recipe they needed to get back on track. After falling behind 16-11 in the first quarter, the Tanners broke Tuesday’s game open with a devastating 19-0 run to open the second period. That surge pretty much decided the game, as Peabody went on to coast to a 61-44 triumph over the Sachems at the PHS Gym. By outscoring Saugus 25-4 in the second period, the Tanners owned a 36-20 lead at halftime. They increased the advantage to 21 points at 4928 as the third period concluded. Head coach Thad Broughton then emptied his bench in the fourth. As has been the case in all of Peabody’s wins so far this season, the defense proved to be the crucial ingredient. Once the Tanners began to apply full-court pressure against Saugus, the visitors were unable to handle it and committed numerous turnovers that led to easy Peabody points. “Early on they knocked down some shots, but we were able to pressure them and force some turnovers,” said Broughton when asked about his team’s second-quarter eruption. “Our defense has to ignite our offense. That’s really the way we have to play.”

Broughton credited Avian Hernandez (seven points), Chris Canela (20 points to go with four 3-pointers) and Jake Irvine (10 points) for keying the second-period rally. “Canela and Irvine are our two offensive leaders and we need them to play well,” he pointed out. Jake Gustin also finished in double figures with 11 points for the Tanners, who improved to 4-3 overall and

host Lynn Classical in a challenging Northeastern Conference (NEC) contest this Friday night (scheduled 7 p.m. start). Coming off Monday’s 96-52 drubbing at the hands of Everett, Broughton said he was proud of his squad’s ability to put that defeat behind them and take care of business on Tuesday. “One of the nice things about this team is they just go out and play, no matter what the score is,” he said.

Tanner girls’ hockey team notches first-ever win over Beverly By Greg Phipps


our goals from Sammie Mirasolo, who continued her torrid early-season scoring pace, and a shutout in goal for Abby Buckley helped the Peabody girls’ hockey team to a strong 5-0 win last Saturday over the Beverly Panthers at Raymond J. Bourque Arena on the campus of Endicott College. Coming off a loss at Masconomet earlier in the week, the Tanners got tallies from Sarah Buckley on a power play and Mirasolo short-handed off an assist from Paige Thibodeau to grab a 2-0 advantage after one period. Jennifer Flynn and Jess Robert assisted on Buckley’s score. Goalie Abby Buckley came up with several key saves in the second period to fend off the Panthers while Mirasolo struck again late in the stanza. She stole an attempted outlet pass, moved in and popped one into the top corner to make it 3-0 entering the third period. From there, the Tanners managed to keep the home team off the board. Meanwhile, Mirasolo would connect twice more. The first came off assists from Kaydee Purcell and Flynn, and the second off a feed from Robert on the power play. The victory was Peabody’s first-ever over Beverly in its 11 years as a varsity program.

praiseworthy of the team’s defensive effort against the Panthers. “A lot of things came together for us. Our defense was great, especially Mae Norton and Kaydee Purcell,” she told the press after the game. “We kept their shots to the outside, kept their bodies away from

the front of the net and that paid off.” Abby Buckley stopped 30 shots, and defensemen Carolyn Garofoli and Reilly Ganter played solid on the back line. Offensively the Tanners put 27 shots on the Beverly goal. Roach acknowledged the

significance of Saturday’s win to the Peabody program. “We’ve worked three years to make strides like this, so it is a milestone,” she said. “There [are] a lot of kids in that locker room that had never beaten Beverly before. They came to work for it tonight.”

Dear Frugal, Retiring abroad has become a growing trend for millions of U.S. retirees who are looking to stretch their retirement savings. Here are some tips and resources to consider that can help you prepare. 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 day-to-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.”

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 non-dividend distributions (distributions 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.

Beacon Hill Roll Call By Bob Katzen THE HOUSE AND SENATE: The House and Senate kicked off the 2018 legislative session last week on Beacon Hill. Most of the activity was ceremonial and there were no roll calls in either branch. This week, Beacon Hill Roll Call reports on the number of

times each senator sided with Republican Gov. Charlie Baker on his 179 vetoes of items in the 2017 session. A two-thirds vote is required to override a gubernatorial veto in the 40-member Senate that includes 33 Democrats and seven Republicans. The

governor needed the support of 15 senators to sustain a veto if all 40 senators voted — and fewer votes if some members were absent. Baker fell short of that goal as nine votes were the most support he received on any veto. The Senate easily overrode all 179 vetoes, including 17 that were overridden unanimously. The vetoes had little support among Democrats in the Senate. Only two of the chamber’s 33 Democrats voted with Baker to sustain any vetoes while the other 31 did not support the governor even once. The Democratic senator who supported Baker the most times was Sen. Sonia Chang-Diaz (D-Boston), who supported him 79 times (44.1 percent). The only other Democrat to support the governor was Sen. Mark Montigny (D-New Bedford), who supported Baker three times (1.6 percent.) The GOP senator who voted with Baker the most times was Sen. Ryan Fattman (R-Webster), who supported the governor 149 times (83.2 percent). Fattman even surpassed GOP Minority Leader Sen. Bruce Tarr (R-Gloucester) who only voted with the Baker 109 times (60.8 percent).

The Republican senator who voted the least amount of times with Baker was Sen. Patrick O’Connor (R-Weymouth), 79 times (44.1 percent). Other Republican senators and how many times they supported Baker include Sens. Vinny deMacedo (R-Plymouth), 133 times (74.3 percent); Donald Humason (R-Westfield), 119 times (66.4 percent); and Richard Ross 92 times (51.3 percent). PERCENTAGE OF TIMES LOCAL SENATORS SUPPORTED GOV. BAKER’S VETOES Here are how local senators fared in their support of Gov. Baker on his vetoes. The percentage next to the senator’s name represents the percentage of times that the senator supported Baker’s vetoes. The number in parentheses represents the number of times that the senator supported Baker’s vetoes. Some senators voted on all 179 roll call votes. Others missed one or more of the 179 votes. Each record is based on the number of roll calls on which a senator voted and does not count the roll calls for which he or she was absent.

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 January 1-5, the House met for a total of one hour and 15 minutes while the Senate met for a total of one hour and 43 minutes.

No Senate session Senate 11:11 a.m. to 11:18 a.m Senate 11:06 a.m. to 12:38 p.m. No Senate session Senate 1:04 p.m. to 1:08 p.m

Lifelong Learner & Compassionate Teacher. At 82, beloved wife of the late Harold K. Abe, passed away on Friday, December 22, 2017 at Brooksby Village in Peabody, MA.

As a lifelong learner and compassionate teacher, Allaine found great joy in providing knowledge and guidance to her many students.

She fearlessly traveled the globe— often with several children and pets in tow—and could always enliven the party with a story from one of her adventures. An avid reader and quilter, she enjoyed creating belongings for her family and friends. A true friend to rely on, she will be deeply missed by all whose lives she touched. Allaine is survived by her sons and daughters-in-law: George and Bettina Abe of Acton, MA; Robert Abe and Christine Osterwalder of Volcano, HI; David and Diane Abe of Lexington, MA; and Jonathan and Tatum Abe of Belmont, MA; her dear grandchildren: Thomas, Magdalen, Katherine, Grace, Sawyer, and Harper Abe; her sister, Judy W.
