Lynnfield observes 17th anniversary of 9/11 By Christopher Roberson


or the third year, Lynnfield residents gathered on the Town Common to remember the 2,977 individuals who perished in the heinous attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. During this year’s First Responders Ceremony, Richard Dalton, chairman of the Board of Selectmen, called attention to the names of two gentlemen from Lynnfield who were lost on that fateful Tuesday. Garnet “Ace” Bailey, formerly of the Boston Bruins, was a passenger aboard United Airlines Flight 175 that crashed into the South Tower. Sean Lynch was a senior vice president at Cantor Fitzgerald on the 104th floor of the North Tower, which was hit by American Airlines Flight 11. “On that day, we witnessed the very worst of mankind, but we also witnessed the very best of mankind,” said Dalton. He also spoke about the un-

Jan. 23, 2005, when New York City Firefighters Brendan Cawley, Eugene Stolowski, Jeffrey Cool, Joseph DiBernardo, John

Bellew and Lt. Curtis Meyran were trapped in a fire on the fourth floor of an apartment building in the Bronx. Forced to jump from 50 feet up, two of the men were killed while the other four were seriously injured. It was the deadliest day in the Fire Department’s history since 9/11 and became known as Black Sunday. Tetreault said DiBernardo’s father, a retired deputy fire chief, went on to establish the Joseph DiBernardo Foundation. In 2011, the Lynnfield Fire Department received a grant from the foundation to purchase new lifesaving safety gear. Seventeen years ago, Police Chief David Breen was a patrolman with the Lynnfield Police Department and was driving home after working the midnight shift when he heard that two planes had flown into

Three long-term solutions presented to LCWD customers By Christopher Roberson


ngineering firm CDM S m i t h h a s d e ve l o p e d three options that would permanently solve the ongoing problem of water discoloration in the Lynnfield Center Water District (LCWD). During the Sept. 10 meeting of the LCWD Board of Water Commissioners, CDM Smith Environmental Engineer Angela Moulton said the choices include constructing a greensand filtration facility at the Glen Drive Pumping Station for $4.5 million, purchasing 100 percent of the district’s water from the Massachusetts Water Resource Authority (MWRA) for “$10 million to $15 million” or purchasing 20 percent of the district’s water from the MWRA for “$500,000 to $1 million.” However, Moulton said the third option would still require the greensand facility. Regarding the heavy cost to purchase 100 percent of the district’s water from the MWRA, she said the closest tie-in point is at the Lynnfield/Saugus line. There-

Prior to Blanchard, Dwyer held positions at Parker Middle School in Chelmsford, the Woodward School in Quincy, St. Sebastian’s School in Needham and Thayer Academy in Braintree. After receiving her bachelor’s degree from Tufts University, Dwyer went on to earn two master’s degrees from Tufts and Harvard University as well as her doctorate from Boston University. Technology upgrades In other news, Educational Technology Director Stephanie Hoban presented the series of improvements that were made during the summer. She said seven Smart Boards and projectors were repaired and eight computer servers were upgraded “from 2003 to 2016.” “We’re really hoping for lightning speed Internet this year,” she said. In addition to taking out four unused servers, Hoban said, the PassMark PC Performance Test was used to identify “kaput desktops.” Hoban also emphasized the importance of having technology available to produce information automatically rather than by “human hands.” “That’s one of the biggest things I’m trying to accomplish,” she said. In terms of additions, Hoban

fore, miles of pipe would need to be installed for that option to be successful. CDM Smith Project Manager Elaine Sistare said customers need to “start thinking about the options,” as a majority vote is needed to implement any of them. She also spoke highly about the greensand filtration option. “The greensand filters are a tried and true said 22 new laptop computers were purchased as well as 500 licenses for Adobe Creative Cloud Suite at Lynnfield High School. She said Google Cloud Print is also up and running. “Now students and staff, from Chromebooks, can print in the high school and the middle school – this is huge,” she said. On the elementary level, Hoban said Kathleen Lorenzo, an art teacher at Huckleberry Hill, was able to purchase 12 iPad Pros with grant money from the school’s Parent Teacher Organization.

method,” said Sistare. Looking at the short-term,

she reminded customers about the $200 rebate that the LCWD is offering for the purchase and installation of a whole house water filter. She also said water samples are being taken every week to monitor the levels of manganese, particularly at Glen Drive. “It doesn’t solve everything, but there have been efforts made,” said Sistare. However, Lisa Lopez of West Tapley Road said it would cost her approximately $4,000 to purchase and install a whole house water filter that is capable of producing clear water. “The $50 filter from Home Depot isn’t going to cut it,” she said. The LCWD has continued to issue $100 fines to residents who are using district water to irrigate their lawns. One resident said

there should be a higher monetary penalty. “I don’t think $100 is going to stop people from watering their lawn,” she said. However, LCWD employee Nicholas Couris said the district is restricted by law from imposing higher fines. Sistare said LCWD crews will be flushing the pipes by the “third or fourth week” of September. “If there’s sediment built up in the pipes, flushing is the industry standard for maintenance,” she said. Moulton said fire hydrants on dead-end streets will be used for directional flushing. “The key is to make sure you’re scouring the inside of the pipe,” she said, adding that gate valves are also used to bring clean water into the system.

Return to Wheeler’s Point on Pillings Pond By Helen Breen


ast year when Kirk Mansfield, of 14 Ryan Rd., began his genealogical quest, he did not realize that he would reconnect with folks who had long-lost connections to his family’s property on Pillings Pond. Backdrop Pillings Pond was created in 1831 when Jonathan Pillings purchased land from John Hawkes and built a dam on Bates Brook for a grist mill. The overflow into Stone Meadow created an attractive expanse of water where “campers” from nearby towns chose to “summer” around the turn of the 20th century. Tracing the original owners of these parcels is difficult, particularly since some plots were leased and many dwellings were “seasonal.” In 1925 Kirk Mansfield’s greatgrandmother Margaret’s second husband, William C. Ryan, a successful insurance executive, purchased a 30,000 square foot shoreline parcel for $9,500 from William R. Wheeler. The latter had acquired the land some years earlier from Frank J. D. Barnjum (later “the Lumber King”), who had extensive holdings in Lynnfield. The property had “buildings thereon.” Ryan’s purchase also included a “right of way” to Essex Street from the Skinner family. So “Wheeler’s Point” became and still remains “Ryan Road.” Margaret McShane Ryan

William C. Ryan (1883-1939) bought Wheeler’s Point in 1925 and Tom Wallace and Kirk Mansfield, who live at 14 Ryan Rd. Front: renamed the property Ryan Road. He was the second husband of June Ryan Gillette of Plymouth, whose grandfather William C. Kirk Mansfield’s great-grandmother Margaret. Ryan was married to Kirk’s great-grandmother; and Irene Eldredge Derby of Melrose, whose grandfather William R. Wheeler sold child was her son, Frank Mc- “Wheeler’s Point” to William Ryan in 1925.

June Ryan Gillette with her mother, Edith Hatfield Ryan, when they lived on Pillings Pond Road in 1934. June’s grandfather William C. Ryan owned several homes in the area.

Dewar (1887-1976) It took some time for Kirk to unravel his family history and the story of his alluring greatgrandmother. Margaret’s only

band, William C. Ryan, lived in Boston, but continued to summer on Pillings Pond until his sudden death at the age of 56 in 1939. A few years later, Margaret married businessman and Harvard graduate Duncan Dewar in Sarasota, Florida. The couple traveled extensively, but still resided on Ryan Road. When Kirk’s grandfather Frank McShane married his sweetheart Florence Reardon of Wakefield, his mother, Margaret, gave them one of the cottages on Ryan Road. There they raised their three children, including Kirk’s mother, Peggy. Frank and his family moved to Salem in 1943. Frank and Florence’s daughter Peggy married Stanley Mansfield in 1959. They had four children of whom Kirk is the

youngest. In the early 60s, matriarch Margaret and her third husband, Duncan Dewar, wanted Peggy and her family nearby and gave them “Outlook Cottage” on 14 Ryan Rd., where Kirk still resides.

Kirk Mansfield is assembling materials for a book he hopes to write about his family’s roots on Pillings Pond. He has become active in the Lynnfield Historical Society and is a newly appointed memb er of the Lynnfield Historical Commission.

Ryan connections After Kirk had figured out his lineage, he became interested in the deeds, boundaries and rights of way affecting Ryan Road. Last year he connected with June Ryan Gillette, William Ryan’s granddaughter by a previous marriage. June’s family lived at 322 Pillings Pond Rd. from the mid-1930s until 1941. Kirk has discovered that Wil-

Three regional agencies team up to support MassHealth consumers with disabilities, complex medical needs L YNN, Mass., 9/10/18 – Three of the region’s most innovative, experienced and trusted human services agencies are teaming up as part of the Commonwealth’s MassHealth 1115 Medicaid waiver, which includes funding for the restructuring of the current MassHealth system. The North Region Long Term Services and Supports Partnership (NRLP) is an affiliated partnership among Bridgewell, Greater Lynn Senior Services (GLSS) and Northeast Arc and has been designated by the state to be part of the Long-Term Services and Supports Community Partner (LTSS CP) program. The partnership will serve people from age three to 64 with LTSS needs who are in MassHealth Accountable Care Organization (ACO) and Managed Care Organization (MCO) health plans and live in communities across the North Shore and Merrimack Valley. The LTSS CP Program began on July 1, 2018. The three agencies have proven expertise in delivering long-term support to people of all ages living with a broad range of complex health needs, disabilities and other life challenges. Leveraging the agencies’ expertise and innovation, NRLP will advocate and connect MassHealth members with services and supports to help them stay healthy, active and independent. “The role of the Community Partner is to advocate for and

connect MassHealth members with critical resources,”said GLSS CEO Paul Crowley. “Our specially trained LTSS Coordinators will work with members and their MassHealth ACO or MCO health plan to develop a care plan, offer health and wellness coaching, and support through transitions in care.” NRLP can help people by connecting them to accessible transportation, assistive devices, adult day programs, grocery shopping, home care, meal preparation, medication management, personal care, training and education, and more. GLSS, NRLP’s lead organization, brings more than 40 years of experience in meeting the needs of adults of all ages living with complex health care and/or behavioral health challenges and their families and caregivers. The agency provides comprehensive, person-centered coordination of wide-ranging community supports, including 24/7 home care services. “For 60 years, Bridgewell has partnered with an ever-growing community of visionaries, leaders and front-line practitioners in Massachusetts and beyond to cultivate innovative ways to improve the lives of people,” said Bridgewell COO Christopher Tuttle. “We are honored to be part of this important initiative and partner with GLSS and Northeast Arc to bring our support and innovative services to MassHealth members on the North Shore

and Merrimack Valley.” Bridgewell is a nonprofit social and human service organization dedicated to strengthening communities.

St. Maria Goretti holds 2nd Annual Softball Game O

n Sunday, September 9, St. Maria Goretti Parish held its Second Annual Softball Game in the field behind the church. The cool weather and overcast skies were signaling the change of seasons, but this group was not yet ready to put away their gloves and bats. This time, the teams were mothers and sons versus fathers and daughters, so families came out in full force! Father Paul Ritt, Pastor of the Lynnfield Catholic Collaborative, served as umpire, which made questioning his close calls a little difficult. The tied score game ended with dad Taidgh McClory caught in a run-down between third and home. Following the game, players and fans were treated to a cookout of hot dogs, hamburgers, salads and sweets. A great way to close out the summer!

Lynnfield’s six-goal first half sinks Peabody By Greg Phipps


he Lynnfield Pioneers are well-established in terms of their field hockey playoff aspirations while the Peabody Tanners are in the midst of a rebuilding phase. The two opponents met each other at Peabody Veterans Memorial High School Stadium last Saturday afternoon. It was the Pioneers who emerged with a decisive 7-0 victory, as the visitors piled up six goals in the first half and held off a spirited second-half effort from Peabody to come away with the shutout.

Beacon Hill Roll Call By Bob Katzen


HE HOUSE AND SENATE. There were no roll call votes in the House or Senate last week. This week, Beacon Hill Roll Call reports local representatives’ roll call attendance records for the 2018 session through September 7. The House has held 216 roll calls in 2018. We tabulate the number of roll calls on which each representative was present and voting and then calculate that number as a percentage of the total roll call votes held. That percentage is the number referred to as the roll call attendance record. Several quorum roll calls, used to gather a majority of members onto the House floor to conduct business, are also included in the 216 roll calls. On quorum roll calls, members simply vote “present” in order

to indicate their presence in the chamber. When a representative does not indicate his or her presence on a quorum roll call, we count that as a roll call absence just like any other roll call absence. Only 67 (43 percent) of the House’s 153 members have 100 percent roll call attendance records. The representative who missed the most roll calls is Rep. John Velis (D-Westfield) who missed 156, (27.7 percent attendance). Rep. Velis is in the military in Afghanistan and his spokeswoman Emily Swanson told Beacon Hill Roll Call. “Since June, Rep. Velis has been and is still serving with the U.S. Army in Afghanistan and has been unable to cast any votes since his pre-departure preparation and departure. Prior to being called up for active duty, he did not miss any rolls and had a 100 percent roll call attendance record.” Also included in the top five members who missed the most roll calls are Reps. Luis Kafka (D-

Sharon) who missed 102, (31.7 percent attendance); Evandro Carvalho (D-Boston) who missed 52, (75.9 percent attendance); Cory Atkins (D-Concord) who missed 32, (85.1 percent attendance); and Bill Straus (D-Mattapoisett) who missed 31, (85.6 percent attendance). Beacon Hill Roll Call requested a statement from those four representatives. Only one responded. Rep. Kafka: “During the formal sessions of the House of Representatives which took place on July 27, 30, and 31 (99 roll calls), I was in Israel attending the Bar Mitzvah of my grandson.” Rep. Carvalho: Did not respond to repeated requests for a statement. Rep. Atkins: Did not respond to repeated requests for a statement. Rep. Strauss: Did not respond to repeated requests for a statement. 2018 REPRESENTATIVE’S ROLL CALL ATTENDANCE RECORD THROUGH

THE LYNNFIELD ADVOCATE – Friday, September 14, 2018

HISTORY | FROM PAGE 8 liam Ryan owned several more houses in the area than those on Ryan Road. June has delightful childhood memories of Lynnfield, where she attended the Center School until the second grade.“We were in the boonies,”June admits,“but I was able to tell Kirk who lived in each house.” She continued, “There were no houses across the road – it was all pine woods until the Hurricane of 1938.”June and her two brothers spent the storm in their cellar “looking out at the trees falling like ten-pins.” During snowstorms, she recalls,“We

were the last road to be plowed. It was a very small community then.” The Wheelers Kirk then pursued the William R. Wheeler piece of the puzzle. According to his 1939 obituary, Wheeler had lived in Boston, but resided with his son in Harwich Port at the time of his death. Then Kirk found a vintage ad for “Harvest Queen” cranberries in Harwich with a William R. Wheeler (his son) as proprietor. Through the magic of Facebook, Kirk connected with Wheeler’s granddaughter Irene Eldredge Derby, now 90 and living in Melrose. Irene was able to confirm

Ask the Plumber

Dear Ron, I plan on remodeling my kitchen and master bath soon and will be choosing a Plumber. What I would like to know is do I need to pull a permit and if I do need a permit, who is responsible for getting it? Thanks for any advice, ~Remodeler Dear Remodeler, To answer your question, whenever dealing with plumbing or gas a plumbing permit should always be pulled. By doing so you will not have a problem with home inspections should you ever decide to sell your property in the future. Mass State Plumbing/Gas Code (248 CMR) and M assachusetts G eneral Law Chapter 142: States only lawfully licensed businesses or individuals may perform Plumbing/Gas fitting work regulated by the Board of Plumber’s and Gasfitters. Until a permit has been issued by the Plumbing and Gas Inspector, Plumbing or Gas fitting work shall not be installed, altered, removed, replaced, or repaired. Any application to such permit shall be made in writing to the Inspector before work commences. This code includes, but not limited to Minimum Sanitary requirements for Building Occupancy, point of use protection for all sewer, water and Gas connections within jurisdiction. Another thing to note, it is important to check with your city/town’s inspectional service division for more specific permitting questions. Having said that, to have permits issued you must use a licensed and insured plumber for any plumbing work you plan on having done. The plumber will apply for permit; however, the cost of the permit is the home owner’s responsibility and is usually reflected in the contractor’s price. The permit/inspection process was implemented for the safety of the homeowner and their property. This is the reason plumbing/gas permits are only issued to properly licensed and insured plumbers/gasfitters. Thank you for your question, Ron. Ron Masse is a Master Plumber and the Principal of CRN Plumbing, Heating, Cooling and Electrical (781) Fix-Pipe – (781) 349-7473 Send your questions to:

that her grandfather William R. Wheeler had owned land in Lynnfield that he sold to Ryan in 1925. She also said that the family was proud of Wheeler’s father, Lt. James R. Wheeler, who was in command of the battleship Kearsarge when it sank the Confederate gunner Alabama during the Civil War. While Irene had not “summered” in Lynnfield herself, she remembered her grandmother telling the story of how guests

would get off the train at Lynnfield Center, walk up Summer Street and shout across the pond for her grandfather to pick them up in his boat. Recently Kirk held a small gathering on a lovely August afternoon when he, June and Irene shared memories and pictures of the old days on Pillings Pond. The day was complete when Debra

Page 13 and Brian Roberts of 3 Lakeview Ave. took the party out on their pontoon boat to cruise Pillings Pond. Debra, a Northrup Real Estate associate, knows the pond area well and described how many lakefront properties have been improved over the years. All agreed that though much has changed at Wheeler’s Point, much remains the same.

(Send comments to Thanks to Kirk Mansfield for sharing the story of his family on Pillings Pond.

Dear Savvy Senior, I’ve been reading that there are a bunch of different flu vaccines for seniors this flu season. Which flu shot is right for me? Flu-Conscious Carol Dear Carol, It wasn’t that long ago that if you wanted to get protected from the flu, you simply got a flu shot. But now days, there are so many flu vaccine options you might feel like you are ordering off a menu. To help you decide which flu shot is right for you, you need to consider your health, age and personal preferences. Here’s what you should know. Flu Shot Options Just as they do every year, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends a seasonal flu shot to everyone 6 months of age and older, but it’s especially important for seniors who are at higher risk of developing serious flu-related complications. The flu puts more than 200,000 people in the hospital each year and kills an average of 24,000 – 80 to 90 percent of whom are seniors. Here’s the rundown of the different vaccine options (you only need to get one of these): Standard flu vaccines: If you want to keep things basic, you can’t go wrong with a “standard (trivalent) flu shot,” which has been around for more than 40 years and protects against three different strains of flu viruses. This year’s version protects against two A strains (H1N1 and H3N2), and one influenza B virus. Or, for additional protection, you should consider the “quadrivalent flu vaccine” that protects against four types of influenza – the same three strains as the standard trivalent flu shot, plus an additional B-strain virus. Senior specific vaccines: If you’re age 65 or older and want some extra protection, you should consider the “Fluzone High-Dose” or “FLUAD.” The Fluzone High-Dose has four times the amount of antigen as a regular flu shot does, while the FLUAD contains an added ingredient called adjuvant MF59. Both vaccines provide a stronger immune response for better protection. Egg allergy vaccines: If you’re allergic to eggs, your flu shot options are “Flucelvax” or “FluBlok.” Neither of these vaccines uses chicken eggs in their manufacturing process. Fear of needle vaccines: If you don’t like needles, and you’re between the ages of 18 and 64, your options are the “Fluzone Intradermal” or “AFLURIA” vaccine. The Fluzone intradermal flu shot uses a tiny 1/16-inch long micro-needle to inject the vaccine just under the skin, rather than deeper in the muscle like standard flu shot. While the AFLURIA vaccine is administered by a jet injector, which is a medical device that uses a high-pressure, narrow stream of fluid to penetrate the skin instead of a needle. You should also know that if you’re a Medicare beneficiary, Part B covers all flu vaccinations, but if you have private health insurance, you’ll need to check with your plan to see which vaccines they do or don’t cover. Pneumonia Vaccines Two other important vaccinations the CDC recommends to seniors, especially this time of year, are the pneumococcal vaccines for pneumonia. Around 1 million Americans are hospitalized with pneumonia each year, and about 50,000 people die from it. The CDC recommends that all seniors, 65 or older, get two vaccinations –Prevnar 13 and Pneumovax 23. Both vaccines, which are administered just once at different times, work in different ways to provide maximum protection. If you haven’t yet received any pneumococcal vaccine you should get the Prevnar 13 first, followed by Pneumovax 23 six to 12 months later. Medicare Part B covers both shots, if they are taken at least one year apart. To locate a vaccination site that offers both flu and pneumonia shots, visit and type in your ZIP code. Send your senior questions to: Savvy Senior, P.O. Box 5443, Norman, OK 73070, or visit Jim Miller is a contributor to the NBC Today show and author of “The Savvy Senior” book.

each tallied twice while Lauren Gaudette, Carolyn Garafoli and Madison Murphy collected the other goals. Lynnfield controlled the territorial play during the opening 30 minutes by keeping the action almost exclusively in the Peabody end. With Lynnfield resting some its starters in period two, the Tanners were able to generate some scoring chances. Lynnfield goalie Emily Dickey was called upon to make four saves. “We’ve had two tough opponents with Beverly and Lynnfield being two of the best teams around,” said Peabody’s first-year head coach, Tawny Palmieri, whose team lost to Beverly, 6-0, in its season opener earlier last week. “But in the second half of both games, we gave up just one goal and were more aggressive. I see the potential in this team, and I think [the players] will improve as they get more used to playing with each other. It’s going to take a little time, but I think we’ll turn it around.” Goalie Kylie Colella started Saturday’s game for Peabody but had to exit early due to an injury. Sydney Branga took over and played well under a lot of pressure in the first half. She made a couple of strong kick saves to keep Peabody within shouting distance. Lynnfield was coming off a season-opening 4-0 win over Reading to improve to 2-0. Head coach Mamie Reardon, whose squad finished fourth overall in the Cape Ann League standings last season, said she is pleased with the team’s passing and transition play through the first two games. “We have kids that work very hard in the offseason and the summer. Their physical conditioning is fantastic, and that makes it easier to learn the necessary skills [of the game],” Reardon said. “The kids are optimistic; we’re all optimistic that this is going to be a good season for us. We’re just going to take each game one at a time.” Both teams resumed their seasons on Thursday, as the Pioneers hosted Rockport and Peabody traveled for a contest at Revere.
