The council would then forward that document to the state legislature for final approval. “It’s complicated stuff, but we know what you can do and what you can’t do,” said McGoldrick.

During the May 10 meeting, Councillor-at-Large David Gravel said City Solicitor Michael Smerczynski had offered two options for charter revisions. The first option would be to elect a Charter Commission. Gravel said that option “had a lot of tripwires in it in terms of being able to move forward.” The second option would be to form a committee of appointed members to write a Special Act. “Going the Special Act route is a lot more efficient,” said McGoldrick. “You don’t have to go through the election of a nine-member commission.” He also said Special Acts are much more common. “We’ve seen hundreds of Special Acts,” he said. McGoldrick also said the Collins Center is currently assisting Lynn and Methuen with charter revisions and both of those communities have appointed committees. He said the committee would consist of “seven to

the gravity of implementing a charter change. “It’s not like an ordinance where you change it as conditions change,” she said. “It’s very difficult to go in with a scalpel and extract certain things. These survive administrations – many administrations.” Contreas said revising the charter is the only way to keep the document specific to Peabody. “If you rely on state law, it’s kind of like generic cereal: It comes in one flavor and that’s what you get,” she said. “This is a chance for you to add fruit or something.” Contreas also said the council itself could vote to make some changes de pending on where they are in the charter. In addition, McGoldrick said the process would also involve reviewing and possibility repealing prior Special Acts if they are outdated. He

was conducted and found numerous tracts of land that were vacant. He said one location in Beverly went from a project proposal to a brick-and-mortar development in less than one year. “For Massachusetts, that’s like Star Wars speed,” said Baker. He called attention to another site in North Reading that had been dormant for 20 years

– now there are 400 units of senior housing. “We’ve probably done 100 of these projects over the past three years,” he said. “Over time, it creates momentum where there wasn’t any.” Speaking about the opioid epidemic, Baker said Massachusetts was the first state in the

He said that from the 1960s through the 1980s, 30,000 new homes were being built each year. That number has now plummeted to 8,000 new homes per year. In response, Baker said, he proposed House Bill 4075: An Act to promote housing choices. He said the objective is to build 135,000 new homes by 2025. “It would be really great if we could get that housing billed passed,� he said. As of March 8, the bill was pending in the House of Representatives.

Peabody jeweler celebrates 40 years By Christopher Roberson

BEDROOMS Memorial Day Savings

I

n 1978, Stanley Paul got into the jewelry business, and he has never looked back; he celebrates his 40th year as the owner of Stan Paul Jewelry Manufacturing Company. “To me, that’s a milestone,” he said, adding that he does not know anyone under the age of 60 who has owned the same establishment for four decades. Paul said his passion for jewelry was sparked when his uncle introduced him to some of the larger jewelry manufacturers in Greater Boston. From there, Paul began selling gold chains and charms before expanding his inventory to include diamonds. By the early 1990s, Paul had become a wholesaler for 350 jewelry stores throughout New England. However, he decided to shift his business model, as many of those jewelers began going out of business. Paul said the shift was also the advent of the Employee Benefit Program. The program has consisted

A street sign at the corner of Washington Street and Pierpont Street will also be dedicated in memory of Pvt. Ralph Yonis. A resident of Ward 3, Yonis was killed in action during World War II. The festivities for May 28 are scheduled to begin at 9:30 a.m. with a ceremony at Cedar Grove Cemetery on Cedar Grove Avenue. A cannon will be fired at the beginning of the ceremony.

The Memorial Day Parade will step off at 11 a.m. from the intersection of Allens Lane and Washington Street. The parade will then march for one mile, culminating with a ceremony at City Hall (24 Lowell St.). Patten said that in addition to presenting the Medals of Liberty, Mayor Edward Bettencourt has arranged to have a Gold Star Family Float in the parade. “This is the second year that the mayor has done both of these things,” he said. Patten also said the Peabody Veterans Shuttle, which was donated to the city by Honda North, will be making its first appearance in the parade.

COUNCIL | FROM PAGE 1 said the process would likely take “eight to 10” months to complete and would cost “$30,000-$40,000.” McGoldrick also said the legislature will require that any proposed charter change be put on the ballot. The council voted unanimously to ask Mayor Edward Bettencourt to incorporate the cost of the charter revisions into the city’s budget for fiscal year 2019. According to its website, the Collins Center was established by the legislature 10 years ago and is located at the University of Massachusetts at Boston. Since then, the Collins Center has provided services to 150 municipalities and 24 school districts.

In addition, Paul said he never sends jewelry out to be repaired. “We make everything in-house,” he said, adding that items are repaired the same day they get dropped off.

Coolidge Avenue Water Treatment Plant During the council’s Finance Committee meeting, Finance Department Director Michael Gingras said he expects the city will receive a $7 million insurance reimbursement for the fire that destroyed the Coolidge Avenue Water Treatment Plant. Thus far, the city has received $2.3 million from the insurance company. “As we rebuild the plant, we’re submitting costs to them and they’re reimbursing us,” said Gingras. He said the estimated reconstruction cost is projected to be between “$5 million and $6 million.” The additional $1 million would pay back the money that was paid out to the Massachusetts Water Resources Authority for one year of water service.

Paul said he has always put a tremendous emphasis on customer service over the years. “For me, it’s about the customer, that’s how I built my business,” he said, adding that he will do whatever is necessary to please a customer even if it costs him money. Paul recalled a time when he received a call at 8 p.m. on a Sunday from a pregnant customer who could not get her ring off as her fin-

gers had become swollen. In response, Paul told her to meet him at the store that night, and he was able to carefully cut the ring off. “That’s what I’ve built: trust and confidence,” he said. “Everybody who comes in here literally becomes my friend.” Paul also spoke about the importance of being honest with his clientele. “I tell you what the stores don’t tell you, that’s how I’ve been in business so long,” he said.

Paul said the industry has changed in that people get into the business for the paycheck, not because they genuinely love jewelry. Although online sales have also taken a toll on jewelry stores, Paul said pictures of diamonds do not convey the intricacies of the product and are, therefore, misleading to consumers. “To buy a diamond online – you’re fooling yourself, you’re hurting yourself,” he said.

Tanners boys’ lacrosse team still has shot at playoffs

Peabody’s Colby Therrien gains ball possession as a Beverly defender approaches in last Thursday’s 4-3 loss to the Panthers. (Advocate photos by Greg Phipps)

By Greg Phipps

A

bout two weeks ago, the Peabody boys’ lacrosse team was on a roll and had gotten above the .500 mark. Since then, the Tanners have struggled by going 1-5 and will have to reach down deep to earn a playoff spot this season. Peabody suffered a real tough Northeastern Conference (NEC) setback last Thursday at Beverly, playing the host Panthers to a standstill before losing, 4-3, on a late goal. The low-scoring affair was highlighted by terrific defense on both sides. Most notably, Tanners goalie Austin Leggett came up big with 14 saves. After a 13-6 defeat against Silver Springs last Saturday, the Tanners sat at 6-9 entering this week’s play.

Peabody’s Pat Russo battles for position during a firsthalf faceoff against Beverly.

They had a scheduled tilt at Gloucester on Tuesday. Peabody can still qualify for the playoffs if they can finish second in the NEC or manage to accumulate 10 wins on the season. They were tied with Beverly for that second league spot as this week’s action commenced. Both teams sported 6-3 records in NEC play. In the earlier meeting between the two squads back in April, Peabody rallied from a sizable deficit to pull off a 12-11 victory. After last Thursday’s loss, Peabody head coach Greg Welch told the press that his team’s problems, especially in terms of winning ball possession and setting up on offense, are fixable. “They’re hard work, but easy to fix,” he pointed out. Peabody was outshot, 18-10, but did get goals from Stephen Ell (his 50th of the season), Colby Ther-

rien and James Nicholson. Welch acknowledged the stellar goaltending by Leggett and his defense, which was led by John Najjar, Andrew Lucas, Tyler Norman, Nick Ricci, Matt Murphy and Nick Vecchio. Welch also said allowing just four goals should normally result in a win. “If you hold Beverly to only four goals, you should win. We need to find a way to get more consistent offense,” he observed. The Tanners have had several one-goal games against NEC opponents that could have turned either way. They both won and lost by one goal against Danvers and Beverly. The Tanners play their annual Danish Cup game against cross-city rival Bishop Fenwick this Friday evening (scheduled 7 p.m. start).

hen asked if his team has exceeded his expectations so far this season, Peabody softball head coach Butch Melanaphy was essentially neutral with his response after his Tanners went to 13-0 by defeating the Beverly Panthers, 8-1, Monday evening in a Northeastern Conference clash at Innocenti Field in Beverly. “We’re playing very well and, honestly, I’m in awe about what we’re doing this season. But our goal before the season was to win 15 games, so I think it’s too soon to say yes to

that,” he responded. “Tianna [Dawe] said we want to win 20, but we’re taking it one game at a time. We still have some tough games ahead of us. We have a tough week ahead of us. We play Gloucester Wednesday and Medford Friday. We’ll put this one behind us; now the focus is on Gloucester.” Despite the final margin, Monday’s contest wasn’t necessarily a cakewalk. The game was scoreless through three frames, and Beverly, which dropped to 8-5 with the loss, had a chance to draw first blood by getting a runner to third base in the bottom of the third. The Tanners were able to stave off that threat and responded by scoring

twice in their half the fourth and plating six more runs in the fifth frame to pull away for good. Pitcher Tianna Dawe put forth her usual strong effort with 12 strikeouts and just four hits allowed. She gave up Beverly’s only run in the seventh. However, the defense behind her was a key factor. Center fielder Mackenzie Marmion made a sensational running grab earlier in the game, going to her left on a shot that appeared to be sailing over her head. And catcher Kristina Rossignol made

Comeback victory sends Lady Tanners LAX to playoffs By Greg Phipps

fter failing to clinch a postseason berth two days earlier in a loss at Swampscott, the Peabody Tanners didn’t appear to be in position to accomplish that feat against the Danvers Falcons during the first half of last Friday night’s girls’ lacrosse contest at Danvers High School. Peabody fell behind, 5-1, early and trailed, 6-3, at the half. But signs of revival began to show late in the first session when the Tanners, led by freshman Amber Kiricoples’s dominant play in the face-off circle, started to assert

themselves by taking control of the possession game. Peabody won a large percentage of the second-period faceoffs and used that advantage to outscore the Falcons, 7-3, and come away with an inspiring 10-9 triumph. The win catapulted the Tanners into this year’s tournament. A 17-6 rout of Quincy last Saturday morning upped Peabody’s record to 11-2 for the season entering this week’s play. “Give Danvers credit, they came out like gangbusters,” said Peabody head coach Dennis Desroches after the win over the Falcons.“Danvers is a very talent-

ed team. This is always a hardfought rivalry game. It’s that way every year and it was a great start by them. But for our girls to be in that pressure situation [done by a large margin early] and come out with a win is huge.” Hailee Lomasney scored with less than a minute left in the game to eventually give Peabody the win. Catherine Manning helped secure the victory by charging to the ball and gaining possession off the ensuing face-off. From there, Peabody was able to run out the clock. “After we scored we needed that last ball. Catherine is only a junior but she’s a veteran player for us. She made the play to get to that ball and seal the deal,” explained Desroches, who also cited the contribution of Kiricoples, whose face-off dominance was a large key to the comeback. “[Danvers] had draw control most of the first half, so we made a change in the circle. And Amber winning those draws was really big for us,” Desroches said. If not for some excellent saves by the Danvers goalie, the Tanners might have overtaken the Falcons earlier in the second period. Desroches praised the Falcons’ netminder and admitted he was concerned when his squad dug themselves a deep hole in the opening period. “I’m always worried when we fall behind like that because of our youth,” he said. “It was a great game between two very good teams. Thank goodness we were able to battle back.” Colleen Crotty continued her offensive prowess, scoring four times in the win. Maddy Lomasney and Sarah Buckley each scored twice, and Olivia Kiricoples also tallied for the Tanners. In other action, Olivia Lavalle played well with 15 saves while Hailee Lomasney tallied four times in an 11-8 loss to Swampscott. In the Quincy victory, eight players scored goals, including Crotty with five, Hailee Lomasney with four and Maddy Lomasney with two. On defense, Kaylyn Falco, Emily Carney, Ava Lavalle and Rachel Turner excelled.

Tax Talk with Tom

Are you being audited? M

any taxpayers are receiving correspondence from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and Massachusetts Department of Revenue (DOR) regarding their 2017 tax return. Many new clients call our office questioning why they are being audited by the IRS or DOR. After reviewing the IRS or DOR correspondence, the taxpayer is asked to provide specific documents to verify citizenship, social security number, employment or dependents. The common questions we receive are: What is the purpose of this correspondence? Is this an Audit?

Why have I been selected? Will I have to pay a tax? Why are the IRS and DOR mailing this type of correspondence? The IRS and DOR randomly select taxpayers to verify specific personal data in an effort to reduce or eliminate Identity Theft and the filing of Fraudulent Tax Returns. Some taxpayers have unfortunately experienced the situation where someone else fraudulently filed a tax return utilizing their name and social security number. This occurrence proves to be extremely time-consuming to resolve. There are special IRS and

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Extra Helpâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Program Helps Seniors With Their Medication Costs Dear Savvy Senior, Are there any special Medicare programs that help seniors with their medication costs? My 74-year-old mother, who lives primarily on her Social Security, takes several high-priced drugs that sap her income even with her Medicare drug plan. Looking for Assistance Dear Looking, Yes, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a low-income subsidy program called Extra Help that can assist seniors on a tight budget with paying for their premiums, deductible and co-payments in their Medicare (Part D) prescription drug plan. Currently around 10 million people are receiving this subsidy, but another two million may qualify for it and donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even realize it. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re missing out on hundreds, maybe thousands, of dollars in savings each year. Changes in the law make it easier than ever to qualify for the Extra Help program. Even if your mom applied and didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t qualify before, she may be eligible now. The amount of additional assistance she would receive depends on her income and assets. If she qualifies for help, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll pay no more than $3.35 for a generic drug and $8.35 for a brand-name drug in 2018. To get the subsidy, your momâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s assets canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be more than $14,100 (or $28,150 for married couples living together). Bank accounts, stocks and bonds count as assets, but her home, vehicle, personal belongings, life insurance and burial plots do not. Also, your momâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s monthly income canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be more than $1,538 (or $2,078 for married couples). If your mom supports a family member who lives with her, or lives in Alaska or Hawaii, her income can be higher. In addition, the government wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t count any money if your mom receives help for household expenses like food, rent, mortgage payments, utilities and property taxes. How To Apply There are three ways to apply for Extra Help: online at SSA. gov/prescriptionhelp; by calling Social Security at 800-7721213; or by visiting her local Social Security office. The application form is easy to complete, but youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll need your momâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Social Security number and information about her bank balances, pensions and investments. Social Security will review her application and send her a letter within a few weeks letting you know whether she qualifies. If your mom doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t qualify for Extra Help, she may still be able to get help from a state pharmacy assistance program or a patient assistance program. Visit BenefitsCheckUp.org and click on â&#x20AC;&#x153;Medicationsâ&#x20AC;? to search for these programs. Other Medicare Assistance If your mom is eligible for Extra Help, she may also qualify for help with her other Medicare expenses through her stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Medicare Savings Program. State Medicaid programs partner with the federal government, so income and asset qualifications vary depending on where she lives. Medicare Savings Programs will pay her entire Medicare Part B premium each month. Some also pay for Part B coinsurance and copayments, depending on her income. Contact your momâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s state Medicaid office to determine if she qualifies for benefits in her state. You can also get help through her State Health Insurance Assistance Program (SHIP), which provides free one-on-one Medicare counseling in person or over the phone. To locate a SHIP counselor in your area, visit ShiptaCenter.org or call the eldercare locator at 800-677-1116.

SIMPLE TRUST VS. COMPLEX TRUST A

ll Trusts for tax purposes are classified into two basic types of Trusts: simple or complex. To determine which type of trust you are dealing with, you must read the terms of the Trust instrument itself. With a simple Trust, the Trustee is required to distribute the income generated by the Trust to the income beneficiary until some predetermined time period has passed. With a complex Trust, the

Trustee is not required to distribute the income generated by the Trust to the income beneficiary. The Trustee has discretion to distribute income. A simple Trust cannot make distributions to charitable organizations. A complex trust can make distributions to charitable organizations. Capital gains are generally considered to be a part of the principal (or corpus) of the Trust

and therefore are not distributed to the income beneficiary of a simple Trust. With a simple Trust, the income beneficiary will be taxed on trust ordinary income such as interest income and dividend income, whether or not it is actually distributed to the income beneficiary. With a complex Trust, the Trustee has discretion to distribute income to specific beneficiaries pursuant to the terms of the Trust itself. If the income of a complex Trust is not distributed, the Trust itself will pay the tax. If the income

is distributed, then the beneficiary receiving the income will report the income on his or her tax return upon the receipt of a Schedule K-1 form from the Trustee. The beneficiary will pay the tax on his or her individual income tax return. Income tax rates for complex trusts are significantly higher than for individuals. From a tax standpoint, it often makes sense to distribute income out to the beneficiaries in order to save substantial tax dollars. A Trust will lose its classification as a simple Trust during any year in which the Trustee distributes cor-

pus. A simple Trust is entitled to a very low exemption of $300 to offset income generated by the Trust. A Complex Trust is entitled to an even a lower exemption of $100. A Trust can never be a simple Trust in the year of termination. You must check off one of the boxes on page one of Form 1041 before filing a Trust income tax return in order to let the IRS know what type of Trust is involved.
