Classic car show turns Main St. into Memory Lane

School Committee tries again to find new superintendent By Christopher Roberson

By Christopher Roberson



rom the iconic muscle cars of the 1960s and 1970s to a lustrous supercar, the Fourth Annual Antique Car Show featured a smorgasbord of pristine vehicles lined up on either side of Main Street. “We’ve got Jeeps and Bugs and Corvettes,” said Maria Terris, event coordinator for the Peabody Area Chamber of Commerce during the Oct. 7 event, adding that approximately 90 residents from Essex County and New Hampshire attended the show this year. She said the show has continued to be a popular venue for automotive enthusiasts. “It brings people with the same hobbies together,” she said. Noreen Cousins, president the North Shore Old Car Club (NSOCC), said this is the first year her organization has taken part in the show. One car that Cousins said caught her eye was the 1967 Shelby GT500 owned by residents Donald and Josie Lee. “It’s ab-

fter a failed first attempt during the early months of 2017, the School Committee has resumed its search for a new superintendent of schools. Committee Member Beverley Griffin Dunne said the second search process began on Sept. 8 and has been conducted thus far by the Massachusetts Association of School Committees (MASC). Griffin Dunne said MASC will select five finalists to be publicly interviewed by the committee. That group will then be narrowed down to “two or three” finalists, and site visits will be scheduled in the candidates’ districts. Following the site visits, the committee could either vote on a new superintendent or arrange for a second round of interviews. The projected starting date is July 1, 2018; however, the committee is looking to make a decision by December of this year.

“I wanted to have a completely transparent process and I wanted it to be done quickly,” said Griffin Dunne, adding that the first search was quite sluggish, which caused some candidates to take jobs elsewhere. “We were up against timing; it was not a good time to go out trying to hire a new superintendent.” Former Superintendent Joseph Mastrocola resigned on July 1, 2015, to become the new superintendent-director of Greater Lowell Technical High School. This prompted the committee to appoint Dr. Herbert Levine as the interim superintendent. Griffin Dunne said funding is one of the challenges the new superintendent is likely to encounter after arriving in Peabody. “Traditional funding is shifting so much with the current changes in Washington [D.C.],” she said,


One candidate, two incumbents make their cases for City Council By Christopher Roberson


andidate Stephen Collins and incumbents Anne Manning-Martin and David Gravel have set their eyes on winning a councillor-at-large seat this November. Collins said that throughout his life, he has always viewed himself as one who helps others. “I see my campaign for City Council as a way to accomplish this on a larger scale,” he said. “I have lived in Peabody for 20 years and care about the city and care even more about the people in it.” The oldest of six children, Collins said he was always“afforded great opportunities as a student, an athlete and a resident.” If elected, he said it would be a priority to ensure that such opportunities are available for future generations. “I want to do what I can to continue to make this city a place that we are all proud to call home,” said Collins. Although this is his first time running for office, Collins said he welcomes the task.

“I have always aspired to be in a politics and in a position to make a positive change in people’s lives,” he said. Educationally, Collins graduated from Syracuse University where he majored in public policy and minored in strategic management. “I feel that these educational experiences have helped to prepare me for a role within the City Council,” he said. Collins has also been involved at Higgins Middle School, the Torigian YMCA as well as the city’s

Parks Recreation and Forestry Department. “Throughout my time in these roles, I have been able to interact with many of the residents of Peabody and hear their concerns and see the areas of improvement within the city,” he said. “I have had many experiences and held many positions that have come together to build the background to make me a strong choice for councillor-at-large.” Since Collins announced his candidacy on March 6, he has

However, he said his youthfulness has been an advantage. “During my campaign, I have had countless conversations with residents expressing their excitement that someone with a new and fresh perspective is willing to step up and run for a seat on the City Council,”he said. Collins also said increasing taxes continues to be one of the city’s major obstacles. “If elected I intend to address this issue by continuing to tap into the resources in Peabody that I believe are currently unAnne Manning-Martin der-utilized,”he said.“We should continued to be impressed with be inviting new businesses to the number of families who, for find homes in the available ofgenerations, have called Pea- fice space and storefronts of Peabody’s downtown, Centenbody home. “This city is a place where nial Park and the North Shore many are proud to grow up and Mall.

McGinn running unopposed in Ward 2 By Christopher Roberson


ith no opposition, incumbent Ward 2 Councillor Peter McGinn is looking forward to another two years on the City Council. “I have been engaged and prepared on all issues before the City Council, especially those issues impacting Ward 2,” he said. “I have been committed to neighborhood issues and worked as an advocate for Ward 2. I am running because I want to continue to represent Ward 2 in a positive and constructive manner.” McGinn said the cost of living continues to be a hot-button issue across the city. “The biggest issue facing Peabody is providing quality municipal services that residents expect and deserve while maintaining Peabody as an affordable place to live,” he said. “My priority will be maintaining strong and positive representation for Ward 2. I will continue to focus on the important matters of municipal finances and the economic development of our community.” McGinn also said he will continue to stand behind the downtown revitalization efforts. “As Ward 2 includes the downtown, supporting ongoing efforts to improve the vibrancy of that area are an essential part of the job,” he said. In addition, McGinn spoke

highly of Peabody’s many celebrations. “I love that Peabody celebrates its unique identity,” he said. “This is evident in events like the International Festival, which in this, the festival’s 34th year, was bigger and better than ever. The multiple events of the 2016 Centennial Celebration are further examples, and it was an honor to serve as a co-chair of the Peabody Centennial Parade Committee.” A city councillor since 2014, McGinn has served as the council’s president and has sat on numerous committees. In addition to his seat on the council, McGinn is currently a member of the Peabody Main

Streets Organization Committee, a member of the Ward 2 Democratic Committee and the co-chairman of the Finance Council at St. John the Baptist Parish. Prior to representing Ward 2, McGinn was a member of the Downtown Advisory Committee from 2009 to 2013 as well as a member and the co-chairman of the Boy Scouts of America Troop 119 Committee from 2005 to 2014. Professionally, McGinn is the director of Global Business Operations at Avnet, Inc. and has more than 32 years of experience in business and technology as well as “extensive experience” in developing budgets, negotiating contracts and management. After graduating from Peabody Veterans Memorial High School in 1981, McGinn went on to the University of Vermont and graduated with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Management Engineering in 1985. In 1992, McGinn received his Master of Management Science Degree in Manufacturing Engineering from the University of Massachusetts at Lowell.

Senior Appreciation Concert to be held at new Higgins School

Markey slams Trump during Town Hall discussion By Christopher Roberson


ften pointing the finger at President Donald Trump, U.S. Sen. Edward Markey had the attention of a packed auditorium at City Hall as he spoke about the opioid crisis, gun control, climate change and the explosive situation in North Korea.

Regarding the opioid crisis, Markey said 2,000 people lost their lives to substance abuse last year. Although the crisis is a public health emergency in Massachusetts, Markey said Trump does not believe it has reached the federal level. “So far, President Trump has not declared it a national emergency,” he said during the Town Hall-style meeting on Oct. 10. Markey also said that if the Affordable Care Act had been repealed, 2.8 million Americans could have lost insurance coverage for treatment programs. “Treatment without funding is a hallucination,”

he said. Following the mass shooting in Las Vegas on Oct. 1, Markey continued to call for tighter regulations on the purchase of firearms and to ban the purchase of assault weapons. “We need to prohibit people from buying guns on Instagram,” he said. Although the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution grants citizens the right to bear arms, Markey said that people committing mass murder using automatic weapons

was never envisioned. “It was not intended under the Second Amendment,” he said. Markey also said the National Rifle Association (NRA) continues to have an overbearing influence on Republican lawmakers. “The NRA has the Republican leadership in a viselike grip,” he said. Markey was pleased to report that Massachusetts has the lowest number of gun fatalities in the country.

Saugus resident Donald Blais was also in attendance, showing his 1959 MGA Roadster, which was given to him by his brother 20 years ago. “It’s been in the family about 35 years,” he said, adding that it was completely restored in 2005. Blais said that although his Roadster is now 58 years old, it only has approximately 131,000 miles on it – an average of 2,258 miles per year. In addition to appearing at car shows, Blais said he takes the car out “a couple times a week” in good weather. “I love the fun of driving,” he said. Not every vehicle at the show was a vintage model as Mark Riggio, sales advisor for Acura of Peabody, brought a 2017 NSX Acura Valencia. He said that particular car was the 145th model in the world to be manufactured for the 2017 series. Armed with 573 horsepower, the Valencia is capable of reaching a blis-

tering top speed of 191 miles per hour. At a price of $182,000, Riggio said, only one of the cars has been sold in New England since January. “It is known as a supercar,” he said. “It’s up there with the Audi R8; this is the same kind of vehicle.”

With a trio of engines, Riggio said, the Valencia is a hybrid vehicle that runs half on gasoline and half on electricity. He said the fact that the car has allwheel drive is another unique feature. “It’s one of the only supercars that have all-wheel drive,” he said.

Peabody Fire and Police Memorial to be dedicated Saturday


ayor Edward Bettencourt and members of the Peabody Police and Fire Departments will dedicate the Peabody Fire and Police Memorial this Saturday, Oct. 14 at 10 a.m. on Perkins Street across from Emerson Park. Considered the first of its kind, the Memorial features bronze statues of a police officer and firefighter standing side by side, amidst a beautifully appointed courtyard. The entrance to the site is paved with engraved bricks, many dedicated to police officers and firefighters who served Peabody with great distinction. “Each day we are reminded

that the men and women who serve as firefighters and police officers are worthy of our great respect and eternal gratitude,” said Bettencourt. “This beautiful new memorial is a fitting tribute which will stand to honor their service and sacrifice on our behalf.” The dedication ceremony is expected to draw public safety officials from across Massachusetts as well as family members of past and present police officers and firefighters. Also expected to attend is Sgt. John Epstein of the New York City Police Department. Epstein is assigned to the 84th Precinct in Brooklyn, where two officers were shot to

death in 2014 as they sat in their patrol car. Bettencourt, Police Chief Thomas Griffin and 20 Peabody officers traveled to New York to extend their sympathy to members of the 84th Precinct following the tragedy. Parking for Saturday’s ceremony is available on Perkins Street near the Memorial as well as in the Higgins Middle School parking lot. A shuttle will provide round-trip transportation between the Higgins and the Memorial site beginning at 9:30 a.m. Following the ceremony, there will be a brief reception at the new Higgins Middle School; light refreshments will be served.

Big plays hurt Tanners football team in loss to Masco By Greg Phipps


he Peabody Tanners turned to their passing game last Friday night and with exceptional results early, as they jumped out to a quick 7-0 lead over the visiting Masconomet Chieftains in a non-league battle at Peabody’s Veterans Memorial Stadium. Receiver Elijah White hauled in a 30-yard TD pass from QB Jonell Espinal almost exactly two minutes into the game, but that turned out to be all the scoring the Tanners would muster. The Chieftains immediately responded within minutes when running back Pete Kitsakos (183 yards rushing for the game) broke free to score from 53 yards away and even the game. Kitsakos also produced a 69-yard scoring run to help Masco run away with a 35-7 triumph. The loss put a real damper on any hopes the Tanners, who fell to 1-4 overall, had of making the playoff tournament. “We’ll need help now. We don’t control our own destiny anymore,” said Peabody head coach Mark Bettencourt after the game. “We’ll regroup and prepare for next week. Our players have a lot of pride. They work hard and they’re a resilient group.” Numerous big gainers by the Masconomet offense, in-

MARKEY | FROM PAGE 3 Regarding climate change, Markey said that earlier on Oct. 10, the Trump Administration announced that it would no longer be taking steps to reduce the emission of greenhouse gases. He said this decision will be detrimental to the wind and solar industry, which he said is the fastest growing field in the country and employs 100,000 Massachusetts residents. Markey maintained that Trump “doesn’t understand the opportunities for job creation.” He also said that climate change is an undeniable truth. “We have hurricane after hurricane after hurricane,” he said. “The planet is running a fever.” However, Markey said the real danger lies in North Korea. Having recently travelled to the country as well as to Japan and China, Markey said North Korea has 8,000 rocket launchers at the ready. “If it went nuclear, it could become catastrophic very quickly,” he said of a po-

cluding a few lengthy pass plays downfield, helped put Peabody in a 28-7 hole at the half. For the game, Masco compiled nearly 400 total yards of offense against the normally stingy Tanner defense. Offensively, Peabody finished with 268 total yards, their best offensive output of the season so far, and engineered some solid drives but ended up making costly mistakes, especially in the form of four firsthalf interceptions. After march-

ing to the Chieftains 20 on their second possession of the contest, the Tanners saw it go to waste when Espinal was picked off inside the 10. “We saw some things on film and decided that our best chance to win was to throw the ball. We were at a size disadvantage and [The Chieftains] are very good at stopping the run,” Bettencourt explained. “When you’re usually a groundand-pound team that’s doing something you don’t normal-

tential conflict. Markey said that once again, Trump has not listened to reason. “We have a president who says he does not believe in diplomacy,” said Markey. In response to a resident’s question about Trump’s tax plan, Markey said Republican leaders are pulling money from the wrong place to make the tax break possible. “They’ve taken a machete to Medicaid, they’ve taken a machete to Medicare,” he said, adding that Medicaid could be cut by $1 trillion and Medicare could be cut by $470 billion. In addition, Markey said 80 percent of the tax reduction would only benefit the wealthiest one percent of the American population. David Berman of Marblehead asked about the widespread power outage in Puerto Rico. “The power disaster in Puerto Rico should be a wakeup call,” he said. In response, Markey assured Berman that “billions of dollars” will be going toward the relief efforts.

Nancy Houghton of Beverly raised concerns about extended care funding for people with disabilities. “Keep Trump out of our healthcare,” she said. Markey answered by calling attention to new legislation that he and three other lawmakers proposed for the Independence at Home Act. If passed, the new legislation would make the act a permanent part of Medicare. “It’s very personal to me,” said Markey, adding that his mother passed away from Alzheimer’s disease. He also said that Trump was on the other end pushing back. “Donald Trump wanted to cut research funding at NIA (National Institute on Aging) – that’s crazy,” said Markey. Pamela Hayne of Peabody, who is a member of We the People Massachusetts, asked Markey for his position on Citizens United, an organization that reportedly strives to “reassert the traditional American values of limited government, freedom of enterprise, strong

ly do, you need a few breaks along the way. We got some bad breaks tonight.” One of those “bad breaks” came early in the third quarter when the defense stopped Masco on its first possession. Peabody returned the ensuing punt back for a TD, a play that could have changed the complexion of the game. It was brought back on a holding penalty. An angry Bettencourt argued the call. “We needed some breaks and we didn’t get them. I thought that call was

made from a considerable distance away from the play. But we’ve got to live with it,” he said. On offense, Espinal completed 11 passes for 163 yards, and Cole Cuzzi caught four passes for 59 yards. Dylan Peluso and Jack Woods each had three receptions while Eric DeMayo (51 yards rushing), Noah Freedman and White (combined 34 yards) led the running attack. Kicker Austin Leggett made good on his lone PAT attempt. Peabody travels to play Malden this Friday night (scheduled 7 p.m. kickoff ).

families and national sovereignty and security.” Markey said that Citizens United has done the complete

opposite. “Citizens United is absolutely destroying democracy,” he said. “I want to see Citizens United overturned.”

Lady Tanners soccer team regroups with two wins By Greg Phipps


aving endured over 130 minutes of scoreless soccer against Northeastern Conference (NEC) foe Marblehead this season, the Peabody Tanners finally broke the ice and made their one goal stand up in a 1-0 victory last Saturday afternoon at Veterans Memorial Stadium.

Tanners boys’ soccer team ends skid with win over Big Blue By Greg Phipps


fter starting the season with four wins and a tie over their first six games, the Peabody Tanners went into a bit of a tailspin by losing three straight. They got back on the winning track Monday with a 3-1 Northeastern Conference road victory over the

Swampscott Big Blue. Michael Tansey came up big with a three-goal game, and Chris Belliveau and Jacob Casallas produced strong efforts on defense. Two of Tansey’s tallies were the result of corner kicks from Andrew Prousalis. Peabody, which upped its record to 5-4-1 with the win, has scored sever-

al times off corner kicks this season. Josh Atemkeng tallied off a corner in the Tanners’ 4-2 home victory over the Big Blue earlier this year. In action last week, the Tanners didn’t get off to a good start at home against a very skilled and physical Somerville squad back on Oct. 3, as they fell by a 4-1 score. The Highlanders are undefeated and showed why in the first half when they tallied twice and were aggressive in attacking the Tanner end. It could have been worse if not for Peabody goalie Troy Cappos, who ended up with five saves for the game, but all five were challenging stops. The Tanners were on their heels for most of period one and were outshot for the game by a 9-2 margin. Peabody head coach Stan McKeen agreed that the second-half performance was better. In the final 40 minutes, Somerville tacked on two more scores, but Peabody managed to threaten the Somerville goal numerous times and avoided the shutout when Giovani Lumaj banged one in off a scramble in front with 7:36 left in the contest. The Tanners nearly had another goal earlier when Atem-

changes and continued challenges we face here in Peabody,” she said, adding that she has also established a good reputation with her constituents. Professionally, Manning-Martin has worked in the field of public safety for the past 25 years and has been trained to handle situations dealing with domestic violence and substance abuse. “My background in these fields is helpful to the City of Peabody in understanding these societal challenges while we all work together to make safer, healthier neighborhoods,” she said. “I advocated for Peabody Public Schools to join the Attorney General’s Office and the New England Patriots partnership grant program, Game Change, mentoring students to stop teen dating violence.” Manning-Martin said that during her tenure, she has always thoroughly investigated every matter that has come before the council. “Some very complicated issues come up and it’s important to me that I feel confident in my votes and decisions, I leave no stone unturned,” she said. In addition, Manning-Martin said this year’s election is “quite different” from the 2015 race. “We essentially had all incum-

bents running for re-election in 2015. This year, with two veteran councillors-at-large retiring, there is enthusiasm from some young candidates hoping to serve the city in this role,” she said. However, Manning-Martin said she expects her experience will keep her in City Hall. “My many years of budgetary experience, knowledge in contract negotiations and responsiveness to my constituents set me apart from the field,”she said. “After 18 years in public office, I’ve developed a common sense approach to good government and have maintained my independence.” Looking ahead, Manning-Martin said medical and recreational marijuana have continued to receive “a lot of attention and focus.” “When reviewing and making decisions on these important matters, it is essential to be forward thinking and realize the impact of our decisions and their possible effects on both the tax base and our quality of life here in Peabody,” she said.

Beacon Hill Roll Call

Rep. Theodore Speliotis Rep. Thomas Walsh Sen. Joan Lovely

By Bob Katzen THE HOUSE AND SENATE: Beacon Hill Roll Call records local representatives’and senators’votes on several of the roll calls on overriding some of Gov. Charlie Baker’s cuts of $320 million in spending in the $39.4 billion fiscal 2018 state budget. A twothirds vote in both branches is needed for a veto to be overridden. The House has restored the entire $320 million and the Senate has restored $39.8 million and is expected to override many other vetoes in the coming weeks. House and Senate Democratic leaders say the budget is balanced and that it was necessary and fiscally responsible to override Baker’s cuts that would hurt many people including the sick, seniors, children and minorities. The governor and GOP leaders question if the state can afford to restore this funding. Some Republicans said that because of this uncertainty they voted to sustain all of Gov. Baker’s vetoes, even though it meant voting against restoring funding for many good programs they would otherwise have supported. CUT $302,500 FOR TOBACCO TASK FORCE (H 3800) House 117-35, Senate 34-3, overrode a reduction of $302,500 (from $897,499 to $594,999) for the Tobacco Task Force. The force was created by the Legislature in 2015 to crack down on the black market of people who sell unstamped cigarettes in order to avoid paying taxes. The commission estimates the state loses millions of dollars in tax revenue each year from illegal tobacco sales. (A “Yes” vote is for funding the $302,500. A “No” vote is against funding it.) Rep. Theodore Speliotis Rep. Thomas Walsh Sen. Joan Lovely

Yes Yes Yes

CUT $300,000 FOR SNAP (H 3800) House 125-27, Senate 37-0, overrode a reduction of $300,000 (from $600,000 to $300,000) for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), also known as food stamps. The state’s website describes SNAP as“providing a monthly benefit to buy nutritious foods. To receive SNAP, you must be low income and be a U.S. citizen or legal non-citizen. Eligibility for SNAP benefits depends on financial and non-financial criteria.” (A “Yes” vote is for funding the $300,000. A “No” vote is against funding it.) Rep. Theodore Speliotis Rep. Thomas Walsh Sen. Joan Lovely

Yes Yes Yes

CUT $6.6 MILLION FOR TRANSITIONAL ASSISTANCE (H 3800) House 132-20, Senate 35-2, overrode a reduction of $6.6 million (from $162.8 million to $156.2 million) for the Transitional Aid to Families with Dependent Children (AFDC) Program. The vote also over-

CUT $122,274 FOR PRISONER’S LEGAL SERVICES (H 3800) House 117-35, overrode a reduction of $122,274 (from $1,609,465 to $1,487,191) in funding for Prisoners’ Legal Services, a program that provides legal representation for indigent and disadvantaged defendants. (A “Yes” vote is for funding the $122,274. A “No” vote is against funding it.) Rep. Theodore Speliotis Rep. Thomas Walsh

Yes Yes

CUT ENTIRE $150,000 FOR JOB TRAINING FOR YOUNG ADULTS WITH DISABILITIES (H 3800) House 136-16, overrode the veto of the entire $150,000 for an employment training program for unemployed young adults with disabilities. (A “Yes” vote is for funding the $150,000. A “No” vote is against funding it.) Rep. Theodore Speliotis Rep. Thomas Walsh

Yes Yes

CUT $303,734 FOR CHELSEA SOLDIERS’HOME (H 3800) Senate 37-0, overrode a reduction of $303,734 (from $27,210,690 to 26,906,956) in funding for the maintenance and operation of the Chelsea Soldier’s Home, a Bay State VA Hospital serving veterans. (A “Yes” vote is for funding the $303,734. A “No” vote is against funding it.) Sen. Joan Lovely


CUT ENTIRE $50,000 FOR POST-PARTUM DEPRESSION (H 3800) Senate 37-0, overrode the veto of the entire $50,000 for a post-partum depression pilot program. (A “Yes” vote is for funding the $50,000. A “No” is against funding it.) Sen. Joan Lovely


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 October 2-6, the House met for a total of five hours and 13 minutes and Senate met for a total of two hours and 52 minutes.

How to Search for Forgotten 401(k) Money Dear Savvy Senior, How do I find an old 401(k) that I think I contributed money to at a former employer? Approaching Retirement Dear Approaching, If you think you may have lost track of a 401(k) retirement account, you aren’t alone. As Americans jump from job to job, many leave scraps of their company sponsored 401(k) plans behind, believing they’ll deal with it later, but never do. To help you look for an old 401(k), here are some suggestions along with some free resources that can help you search. Contact Employer The first way to find a previous 401(k) account is to contact your old employer’s human resources department. Ask them to check their plan records to see if you ever participated in their 401(k) plan, and if so, how much it’s worth. You’ll need to provide them your Social Security number and the dates you worked for them. They should be able to either get you the forms necessary to roll over your retirement money to a different 401(k) or to an IRA, or to give you contact information for any outside financial institution overseeing the plan on your employer’s behalf. By following the appropriate instructions you get, you’ll be able to move your retirement money where you want. If you don’t have contact information for your old employer, check your old records to see if you kept an old 401(k) statement. Statements will typically have the information you need to get in contact with either your employer or a plan administrator. If you need help tracking down your former employer because it may have moved, changed owners or merged with another firm, free help is available from sources like the Labor Department (AskEBSA., 866-444-3272) and the Pension Rights Center and Pension Action Center ( These services can tap into public databases that list incorporations and bankruptcies

and may be able to help you dig up a plan’s most recently filed Form 5500, the annual report that must be filed with the IRS, PBGC and the Labor Department. This form contains the plan’s contact information and the employer’s identification number, which can be used to locate any plan that inherited the assets in a merger, acquisition or sale. You can also find recently filed 5500s yourself at websites like Search Tools Finding a lost 401(k) account can be trickier if it’s worth less than $5,000, because your former employer can transfer the money to a default individual retirement account without consent. Your cash may go into an interest-bearing, federally insured bank account or to your state’s unclaimed property fund. To search for a lost plan, use the National Registry of Unclaimed Retirement Benefits at UnclaimedRetirementBenefits. com. This website matches former employers with past employees who have unclaimed retirement funds. This is a secure and free service, but you’ll need to provide your Social Security number to search. It can also be challenging to track down a lost 401(k) account if your former employer goes bankrupt and abandons the plan. In this case, use the U.S. Department of Labor’s Abandoned Plan Database at Starting in 2018, the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation ( will start accepting transfers of missing participants’ accounts from terminating 401(k) plans. When the participants are found, it will pay them that money plus interest. The agency also plans to launch a registry of terminated 401(k) plans that sent money elsewhere, so missing participants can more easily find their accounts.

t’s October and magazines are starting to display glossy covers with tantalizing images of holiday foods. Yet at the same time offering tips on how to keep your weight and diet in check during the holiday season. It’s no secret that sugary cookies, cakes and other sweets are high on the list of most holiday food plans. As we begin to contemplate the food scene strategy for the holidays, a long term approach limiting added sugars may prove more effective. Added Sugars Added sugars include syrups and other caloric sweetener. When sugars are added to foods and beverages to sweeten them, they add calories without contributing nu-

trients. Consuming added sugars increases calorie intakes, which can result in weight gain. While sugar is added to many foods, some naturally occurring sugars such as those in fruit or milk, are not added sugars. Specific examples of added sugars include brown sugar, corn sweetener, corn syrup fructose, glucose, sucrose, high-fructose corn syrup, honey, molasses, raw sugar and others.

all health is maintained. This also leaves us with 10 percent of calories to splurge on added sugars. For example an individual needs 1800 calories to maintain weight then 10 percent or 180 calories can be from added sugars. When added sugars in foods and beverages exceed 10 percent of calories, a healthy eating pattern may be difficult to achieve. Many foods high in calories from added sugars (cookies, cakes, etc.) provide few or no essential nutrients or dietary fiber and therefore, may contribute to excess calorie intake. The limited, 10 percent added sugars can be utilized to add more appeal to the nutrient rich foods, such as sprinkling a teaspoon of brown sugar on



Year Round Healthy A year round healthy way of eating takes into account that sufficient foods from the five food groups (fruits, vegetables, grains, protein, dairy) meet nutrients we need. This means that we choose foods that are rich in nutrients and have little or no added sugar or fat, such as a baked apple instead of apple pie. By choosing nutrient rich foods we ensure that weight and over-

CANDIDATES | FROM PAGE 10 building permits to have hours of operation and restrictions posted on them. She said that each permit must also be posted on the city’s website. “Now residents can easily access permits to ascertain if a permit holder is not adhering to their permit,” she said. “This is a major improvement for residents in maintaining quality of life in their neighborhoods.” In addition, Manning-Martin said used car lots are now obligated to make their permits visible from the street. “This may not sound like a big deal, but if you have one of these lots in your neighborhood, it’s a big deal,” she said. The next two years would be Gravel’s sixth term on the council should he be re-elected. “I still have much to offer the citizens of Peabody in terms of my services as an elected official to the community,” he said, adding that in prior years he assisted with developing new zoning regulations, revitalizing Centennial Park and the downtown as well as investing in public safety and services. “While we have accomplished much, I feel there is much more to do.” In addition to his work on the council, Gravel is the current chairman and president of the Peabody Education foundation. He also sits on the Board of Directors of organizations including the YMCA of Metro North, Peabody Main Streets and the North Shore Technology Council.

TUESDAY, OCTOBER 3 John Lyle Ciardi, 64, of 6 Antrim Rd., Peabody, was charged with disorderly conduct, with threatening to commit a crime, with resisting arrest and with intimidation of a witness.

“I believe that community service outside of an elected capacity is critical for any elected official,” he said. Professionally, Gravel said he and his wife Catherine have owned and operated GraVoc, a technology solutions consulting company, since 1994. “This experience helps me understand the needs of our commercial taxpayers and it brings real life decision making and problem solving to my council role,” he said. Gravel has also worked for the State Department of Elementary and Secondary Education and was the chief financial and chief operating officer for a technology company called Selecterm. Other councillor-at-large candidates include challengers Ryan Melville, Peter Bakula, Thomas Rossignoll and Russell Donovan. In addition to Gravel and Manning-Martin, Councillor-At-Large Thomas Gould is also seeking re-election. In the ward races, Ward 1 City Councillor Jon Turco, Ward 2 City Councillor Peter McGinn and Ward 3 City Councillor James Moutsoulas are all running unopposed in the Nov. 7 General Election. Ward 4 City Councillor Edward Charest is being challenged by Bukia Chalvire and Ward 5 City Councillor Joel Saslaw is being challenged by James Jeffrey. There is no incumbent candidate in Ward 6 with upcoming retirement of City Councillor Barry Sinewitz. Candidates Michael Geomelos and Mark O’Neill are vying for that seat.
