oing into the new budget season, it was made clear that although Lynnfield is currently in a good financial position, things will probably not stay that way – with a projected decrease in new growth revenue. During the Nov. 8 Budget Summit, Town Administrator James Boudreau said the town currently has a free cash balance of $2.7 million and “pent up capital that’s enough to choke a horse.” However, the millions of dollars that were once generated by MarketStreet Lynnfield have steadily dwindled to the point where $325,000 in new growth is forecast for fiscal year 2019. “The property tax is our bedrock; the revenue picture is go-

ing to be tight going forward,” said Boudreau, adding that the town cannot fund anything greater than a three-percent increase over last year’s budget. However, Fire Chief Mark Tetreault said the Fire Department needs a secretary as those responsibilities have fallen onto one of his lieutenants. “He’s stuck in the office,” said Tetreault. Superintendent of Schools Jane Tremblay predicted that this year’s school budget will be “somewhat challenging” as there have already been some unexpected expenses associated with special education. She also said the district’s Technology Department is still going through a transi-

ConCom moves forward with Boston Clear Water site plan By Christopher Roberson

T

wo months after a contentious meeting with the Conservation Commission regarding the site plan for the Boston Clear Water Company (BCWC), Paul Marchionda, owner of Marchionda and Associates, returned with what he believed was a more amenable plan. “The plan itself has really been simplified,” he said during the commission’s Nov. 14 meeting, adding that the amount of pruning in the adjacent wetlands has been reduced from 25 feet to 15 feet. Member Janice Solomon asked how many trees would need to come down to accommodate the company’s 12 x 56 foot trailer on Lowell Street. Marchionda said that number has actually been reduced following the windstorm on Oct. 30. “There aren’t a lot of trees up there; the storm that went through did a job on a number of trees,” he said. However, resident William O’Brien of 155 Lowell St. took issue with the amount of treecutting that is still being proposed. “There is going to be a lot of tree-cutting, and we’d like to point that out,” he said.

Another resident said that oftentimes trees are taken down without permission. Site Visit Coordinator Melanie Lovell asked if the company’s three solar panels would be invasive to the wetlands. Vice Chairman Donald Gentile asked if the driveway would remain pervious. In response, Marchionda said the solar panels would not interfere with the wetlands and that the driveway would remain pervious. Attorney William Squires, council for BCWC, said that although rodent control is a concern, there have been no documented sightings thus far. Chairman Paul Martindale said additional research is still necessary. “We have what I think is a complex project in terms of the Wetlands Protection Act,” he said. In other news, the commission voted unanimously to issue an Order of Conditions to replace the existing septic system at 30 Maywood Rd., which sits by Pillings Pond. “It’s a very tight site,” said James Cavanaugh of behalf of applicant Antonio Sordillo. “We needed many variances from the Board

Since the town is picking up the cost for all other items and charging by the full carload (up to 25 pounds or 25 gallons), the DPW encourages residents to “buddy up” with their neighbors in order to help reduce the cost.

(Items that cannot be collected are trash, latex paint, radioactive waste, biological waste, ammunition, fireworks, fire extinguishers and prescription medications.) To safely transport these hazardous materials to the Household Hazardous Waste Collection site, leave all materials in their original containers and make sure all caps and lids are tightened. All oil paint, pesticides and household cleaners should be sorted and packed separately. Residents are cautioned not to mix chemicals and never smoke while handling hazardous materials.

Martindale said that given the close proximity to the pond, the commission will require that a 25-foot buffer zone be maintained. “One of the things we’re trying to do is clean up Pillings Pond,” he said. The commission issued a Certificate of Compliance regarding improved drainage at 3 Yorkshire Dr. following the installation of two culverts. “It all looked very stable; it’s functioning well,” said Martindale.

Todd Lane given Gold Star designation By Christopher Roberson

I

t may only be 1,000 feet long; however, Todd Lane is much more than just another side street. Named in memory of Pvt. First Class David Todd and First Lt. Charles Todd, the street was honored by the Board of Selectmen and the Veterans Services Department with a gold star plaque on Nov. 10. At the age of 18, David was killed in Germany on Nov. 21, 1944, during the campaign leading up to the Battle of the Bulge. Only four months later, Charles, David’s older brother, was also killed in Germany on March 5, 1945 – five days before his 24th birthday – and six months before the end of the war. “Over 70 Thanksgiving Days have passed since David and Charles made the ultimate sacrifice,” said Board of Selectmen Chairman Christopher Barrett. “The Todd brothers were true boys of Lynnfield.” Charles Todd, the nephew of David and Charles, said he and his family are“deeply appreciative”to the town for making the gold star designation. “Not enough attention has been paid, and I’m overwhelmed that so much attention is being paid today,” he said. Barrett also called attention to another son of Lynnfield, Pvt. Daniel Townsend. At the age of 36, Townsend was one of the first to fall during the Revolutionary War. Barrett said that although Townsend’s death occurred 170 years before the Todd brothers were killed, “the eternal cause of liberty bonds them forever.” “Humble heroes like Daniel Townsend and the Todd brothers … rose up from the main streets and back roads of New England towns like Lynnfield to take on causes far greater than their own self-interests,” he said. Veterans Agent Bruce Siegel lauded Louis Trapasso for suggesting that Todd Lane receive a gold star designation. “It’s because of Lou that we’re all here,”said Siegel.

Lieutenant Charles N. Todd, both of whom served in the Army and were killed in action during World War ll. At the same time, they were being honored on the other side of the Atlantic. In response to a message I posted on social media at the beginning of the week, I received the following message from the American Legion “Margraten” Post NL01 Department of France. “Greetings, I’m Ray Perez and I’m the Historian for American Legion “Margraten” Post NL01 Department of France. Our Post has recently been giving the honor of being the Primary Sentinel of Memory for PFC David B. Todd. Our post will be taking part in a Veterans Day cere-

mony at Henri-Chapelle American Cemetery on the 11th. We will also be visiting David’s Grave and laying a floral tribute. Part of being David’s Primary Sentinel is reaching out to his family. Could you assist with this? Also if possible we would like to get a picture of David so we can add it to his information on AOMDA and Fields of Honor. Any help you can provide will be deeply appreciated. Kindest Regards Historian Ray. We will also visit David’s brother, Charles’ grave at Margraten on the 10th of November.” I immediately sent photos of David & Charles, along with the articles that appeared in the newspaper when they were killed in action.

He also said the Police Department is in its third year of the five-year process to switch over to a fiberoptic network. Town Clerk Trudy Reid projected an increase of “$10,000 to $12,000” in expenses for the annual election in the spring. She also said additional staffing will be needed for early voting. “It’s not going away,” said Reid. Senior Center Director Linda Naccara said everything looks good thus far. “We are on target for our budget for this year,” she said. Naccara also said more residents are constantly joining the Senior Center. “We have waiting lists for everything and there’s a lot of frustration,” she said.

In addition, Mercer said, approximately 93,000 North Shore residents visit the library each year. Public Works Director John Tomasz said there is a possibility of installing solar panels at the high school, the middle school and at Summer Street Elementary School. He also spoke about a storm water management project on Ledge Road. “That’s getting kicked around at about $350,000,” said Tomasz. In other news, the selectmen voted unanimously to hire Bernard Lynch, the managing partner of Community Paradigm Associates, to assist with the search for a new town administrator. Lynch said he recently assisted with the search process in Norwood and began working with Natick officials within the past month. Boudreau said he felt confident with the board’s decision to hire Lynch. “He knows everybody, he knows the people to call,” said Boudreau. Going forward, Lynch said, he does not foresee any problems with attracting applicants. “Six to eight people immediately come to mind,” he said.

The Lynnfield Knights of Columbus presented the colors, and the Angels in the Morning children’s choir led the congregation in “God Bless America.” This is a beautiful tradition that brings together multiple generations, connects our

love of country with our faith in God and reminds us to be thankful for all we have, for all who have fought for what we have, and for all we are able to pass onto our children. We offer all veterans our gratitude for their service to our country.

S

ometimes the best team doesn’t win. I t usually comes down to which team is the hottest at the right time of the season that decides championships. That appears to be the case in Division 5 North this year.

The Lynnfield Football Pioneers (8-2) were the top seed, and they won going away in the first two rounds of the Super Bowl playoffs by a combined score of 60-13. Coach Neal Weidman’s team appeared to be on a collision course for Gillette Stadium to play for the state cham-

pionship on Dec. 2. But then Watertown came along, you know, that proverbial hot team. The Raiders entered the postseason as the sixth seed with a 3-4 record. But playing in the always formidable Middlesex League obviously benefitted them for the pressure

that always resonates in the postseason. Watertown first defeated host Swampscott, the third seed, 31-10. They then traveled to Somerville to face the Highlanders, the second seed. By game’s end, the visitors had a 21-20 comeback victory. So what happened last Fri-

day night should not be really much of a surprise to the Pioneers and their fans. It was another barnburner that Watertown once again was able to escape with a close win, 3834. But it’s still no solace for a team that was destined to

~Guest Commentary~ Field hockey team wraps up season In praise of Spencer Riley with annual awards banquet By Wayne Shaffer Bockoff receives Coach’s Award for L dedication and leadership By Joe Mitchell

T

he Lynnfield High School field hockey team (12-8, eighth seed) defeated Danvers (8-5-6, ninth seed), 2-0, to begin the Division 2 North state tournament earlier this month. But then they lost to Cape Ann League rival Manchester Essex (20-0-1), the top seed, by the exact same score in the North quarterfinals. The Hornets went on to lose in the sectional title game to Watertown, 1-0. The Pioneers, meanwhile, celebrated their season during the annual banquet Tuesday night at the Middle School, with coach Mamie Reardon presiding over the awards ceremony. Laura Bockoff took home the Coach’s Award for dedication and leadership. Mae Norton received the Most Improved

Award. Alex Ross received the Lynnfield Athletic Association Scholar-Athlete top prize for field hockey after earning the highest grade point average among her senior classmates. The junior Barrett twins, Ashley and Brianna, and Lily Rothwell received their All-Star certificates, and the Barrett sisters, as well as Bockoff, were told they will be next year’s captains. For the most part, these athletes were also the team’s offensive leaders this year who helped propel the Pioneers to another postseason appearance, something the program has achieved on a regular basis throughout the past decade with the exception of 2010. Ashley Barrett shared the distinction of being the team’s top offensive player with Rothwell this year. She compiled 11 goals

and 18 assists, while Rothwell collected 17 goals and two assists. They each had a total of 29 points. Abby Buckley as a defender still managed to sneak into the top three among offensive performers with two goals and 13 assists for 15 points. Brianna Barrett, who also plays defense, was next in line on offense with a goal and 10 assists. Bockoff rounded out the top five with eight goals and two assists. Junior goalie Emily Dickey was credited with a save percentage of 79 percent that helped her teammates to a winning record, once again. With the likes of Dickey and the Barrett twins returning next year, Lynnfield fans can expect to see another competitive product on the field to challenge for the top spot in the Cape Ann League in 2018.

ynnfield Pioneers #56, Spencer Riley, is a name that everyone knows when they leave a football game he has played in. As his coach for the past five years, his reputation has grown well past any other player I can think of. From starting as a third grader, his ability to understand the game of football along with the athletic talent and commitment to being his best self at all times has deemed him as a triple threat! Always showing up early to practice with a willing attitude to work hard and bringing that same attitude to each game makes Spencer the catalyst of pride and determination on his team. On and off the field, Spencer is one of the politest young men I know, always willing to help and go out of his way to make others happy. His grades reflect the same mentality, and he believes size and physicality mean nothing in football or any sports without a sharp mind. This shows true in every play in every game, playing the entire game as

Spencer Riley a running back and a middle linebacker. Only coming out for water breaks, he is always helping his team on the field if he sees a teammate struggling for any reason. Let’s not forget how he always has his hand out to lift up his opponent after a tackle, or give a shout-out to a great play. If I had to highlight one of Spencer’s many displays of sportsmanship, it would have to be during a recent game vs. Manchester Essex. He was so concerned that the Hor-

CLOSED THANKSGIVING DAY

We Have It All!

By Anna Tourkakis, Nutritionist

T

hanksgiving Day is probably the most beloved holiday of the year. We all buy into the messages of the advertising world of the perfect turkey or dessert or how to wow your guests this season. Yet as we imagine this perfect Thanksgiving Day and upcoming holiday season, most can’t avoid the dilemma of this food emporium and the “fear” of the weight gain due to excess indulgences. Many times this holiday dilemma can bring on unnecessary stress. Banish this stress by sticking with the old adage “slow and steady wins the race”. The most recent Dietary Guidelines for Americans emphasized building a healthy eating pattern. This pattern can be described as the combination of foods and beverages that make up the food you eat over time. Indulging in a rich dessert or buttery mashed potatoes at one meal would not have much of on impact on your weight. Actually, one Thanksgiving meal most likely will have little impact on your overall health. Poor eating habits over time on the other hand can be problematic. Healthy eating habits

A healthy eating pattern has room for cake!

to prevent holiday weight gain: 1. Enjoy every bite of your meal • Eat the foods you really want – no need to eat everything on table. • No need to eat food just because it’s there. Save a portion for another day. 2. Yes, fruits and vegetables can have a strong role on the holiday table or party. • Fruits and vegetables add color, flavor, texture and are rich in water content which can help satisfy hunger. 3. Eat until comfortably full and not “stuffed” 4. Keep alcohol intake in moderation at all times as it is high in calories. 5. Add fat, sugar and salt only to enhance the flavor of the natural food and not to overwhelm it. • Casseroles and mixed dishes can be easily modified. • Desserts such as pies and cakes don’t have to be drowned in lots of creams

cream can make any dessert delectable. 6. A Beautiful tray of colorful fruit will be a refreshing addition to the table as well. No need to stress over gaining weight during the holidays. When it comes to our health including a healthy weight a healthy pattern is a winning combination. It allows for enjoying the “occasional indulgence” and keeps us in great shape to appreciate all that we have.

T

he Massachusetts House of Representatives has approved a proposal offered by House Minority Leader Bradley H. Jones, Jr. (R-North Reading) to overhaul the state’s policy for tracking and testing rape kits. Adopted as an amendment to a comprehensive criminal justice reform bill, Representative Jones’ proposal calls for the creation of a rape kit tracking system within the Executive Office of Public Safety and Security (EOPSS), which will be used to maintain the current location and status of all untested kits and will also allow victims of sexual assault to anonymously track their kits.The amendment was adopted on a vote of 155-0. In addition to requiring rape kits to be kept for 50 years, the amendment also mandates an audit of all existing untested kits associated with a reported crime to measure the extent of the current backlog, which is currently unknown. In 2015, EOPSS requested reports from municipal police departments on the number of untested rape kits in their possession, but only 75 out of 351 departments responded. “We don’t even know how many of these rape kits have gone untested, and that is unacceptable, given how crucial the evidence collected from

FOOTBALL | FROM PAGE 10 nets thought he was committing a foul on a last-minute play that at halftime, he walked across the field directly to the head coach and team and apologized while explaining his actions. He did this on his own accord, yet I wasn’t surprised. To know Spencer Riley is to know his heart is as great as his talent; it would hurt him if others thought less of him. Spencer may be the leader in touchdowns and tackles on my team for the past five seasons, but

these kits can be in helping to convict dangerous criminals and connect individuals to unsolved crimes,” said Representative Jones. “Each untested kit represents a missed opportunity to provide a sense of healing to a survivor and increased safety to a community, but today’s vote is an important step in helping survivors of sexual assault to achieve justice.” Representative Jones’amendment is modeled after national policy guidelines advocated for by the Joyful Heart Foundation.Thirty-two other states have already passed rape kit reform laws, while major cities like Cleveland, Detroit, and Memphis have taken action to test thousands of backlogged kits in storage. In Detroit alone, a total of 11,341 kits were tested, resulting in 2,616 matches made on the DNA database and allowing authorities to identify 811 potential serial rapists who have committed crimes in 40 states and Washington, D.C. The Massachusetts Senate recently approved its own criminal justice reform bill, which did not address the backlog of untested rape kits.A conference committee will soon be appointed to work out the differences between the House and Senate versions of the bill. he will never take personal credit. He knows his success is the team’s success since he displays that with his modest personality. My team looks to Spencer for guidance and support when facing adversity or the unknown. They watch his reactions during challenging times and see the dedication he demonstrates, which in turn becomes infectious to everyone. I believe Spencer Riley has played a big part in the success my team has had in the past five seasons and will continue to be a large part of success in everything he pursues in life.

the South champ, in a state semifinal game on Friday night in Medford, the Pioneers will have to find a way to bounce back from this crushing defeat to get ready for the annual Thanksgiving Day clash against rival North Reading. Lynnfield just had to ask Somerville about Watertown’s perseverance. After Tyler Murphy put his teammates in front by 10, 34-24, with just over three minutes to go in the game on a 29-yard run to pay dirt, the Raiders were just warming up. They scored two touchdowns in the final 1:15 to snatch victory from the

jaws of defeat. But ultimately, a perfectly executed onside kick by Conor Kenneally made the comeback possible. Quarterback Matt Mortellite hooked up with John Lee to account for a 38-yard scoring strike to ignite the offense in the opening stanza. But with a touch of foreshadowing, the Raiders erased the four-point (7-3) deficit with two unanswered touchdowns to take a 17-7 lead. Lynnfield trailed at halftime, 17-14, and went up by 11 with a touchdown in the third quarter. Murphy started the Lynnfield comeback at the point with a seven-yard run to the

end zone. The Pioneers maintained positive momentum early on in the second half to regain the advantage. Jason Ndansi was on the receiving end of a Mortellite 44-yard touchdown pass to put the home team back in front, 2117. Anthony Murphy put more points on the scoreboard with a six-yard run to the goal line, before Tyler Murphy’s aforementioned score seemingly wrapped up the North title. But the never-say-die Raiders continued their magic to pull out another triumph, much to the chagrin of the Lynnfield faithful.
