rom the 14 warrant articles presented during Special Town Meeting, only one of them encountered any real resistance: Article 12. During the Oct. 16 meeting, the Board of Selectmen moved that the town be authorized to petition the State Legislature for one additional liquor store license and five additional all alcohol licenses for restaurants. “The Board of Selectmen sees this as an opportunity to grow the town’s meal tax,” said Selectmen Chairman Christopher Barrett. However, resident Benjamin Weiner of Lynnfield Street made an amendment to remove the request for one additional liquor store license. “Lynnfield has enough liquor stores,” he said, adding that pro-

prietors should be purchasing existing licenses as they become available. Having been in the retail liquor business for more than 40 years, Weiner said the state issues liquor store licenses based on a municipality’s population. Therefore, with approximately 11,600 residents, Lynnfield has hit its limit. Following the 97-71 vote to adopt Weiner’s amendment, residents voted 141-23 to pass Article 12 with one request to the state for five additional all alcohol licenses for restaurants. Article 11 looked at selling a parcel of town-owned land for “a price not less than $10,700.” The 8,258-sqaure-foot parcel is located in South Lynnfield off of Witham Street and is adjacent to Interstate 95.

Margaret Richards McShane Ryan Dewar (1887-1976) Margaret’s family emigrated from Germany in the late 19th century and quickly Americanized their surname from “Reichart” to “Richards.” At age 19 Margaret married Frank McShane. The couple settled in Dorchester,

where their only son, Frank McShane, Jr., was born in 1909. After her husband returned from serving in World War I, he and Margaret divorced for reasons that are unclear. Within a few years, Margaret married William Ryan, a successful insurance executive. While the couple lived outside of Boston, Margaret longed for a summer home. So William bought a lot of about 30,000 square feet containing four vacation cottages on Pillings Pond in Lynnfield from a man named Wheeler. The $9,500 purchase also included a “right of way” to Essex Street from the Skinner family. Access to that side of the Pond was difficult in those days. “Wheeler’s Point”became Ryan Road, where Margaret and William summered for many years until his sudden death at age 56 in 1939. Presumably Margaret had not lost her charms because two years later, at age 54, Margaret married Duncan Dewar in Sarasota, Fla. Duncan had previously been married to a wealthy widow whose husband had been a well-known inventor of carding machinery for woolen manufacturing. Duncan, a Harvard graduate, class of 1905, was an acquaintance of Joseph Kennedy, Sr., who was a few years ahead of him in college. The couple traveled extensively, but continued to summer on Pillings Pond.

Frank & Florence McShane, Kirk’s grandparents Meanwhile Frank McShane, Margaret’s only child, had attended several boarding schools, finishing up at Bridgton Academy in Maine from 1928-1930. Frank obviously preferred sports to academics, earning the title of “BAM” for his prowess in basketball. The headline in the account of one Bridgton game read, “McSHANE WENT WILD!” A star athlete, Frank also distinguished himself on the baseball diamond. In the summer of 1933 while home from Villanova, Frank often rowed over to the Dew Drop Inn on the Summer Street side of Pillings Pond. He cut quite a figure there and enjoyed flirting with a beautiful waitress of Irish descent, Florence Reardon from Wakefield. She later told her grandchildren that“from the moment I laid eyes on this welldressed, tall, dark, handsome, smooth talking man, I knew I was in trouble.” Frank and Florence married the next year and moved into “Outlook Cottage” on Ryan Road. They lived next to his mother, Margaret, and stepfather, William Ryan, who lived in “Snuggles Cottage.” (Each of the four cottages had a name in those days.) In the next few years Frank and Florence wel-

Improving Lynnfield’s Elderly Tax Credits E lderly tax relief is becoming a hot topic throughout the state. Several elderly residents have spoken with me about rising taxes, and I think it’s time for Lynnfield to provide an improved tax benefit for our elderly residents. With Reading adopting a Senior Tax Break, some research was done to assist and help jumpstart the discussion of a tax credit for Lynnfield’s elderly homeowners. Why? Why should we grant tax relief to the elderly? They have worked hard their entire lives, paid into the system, and raised their children here. The elderly constitute 18.8% of the Town. They are a significant and vulnerable population. The most deser ving elderly should be granted some relief on moral grounds. After all, the measure of a good society is judged by how its children and elderly are treated. We can afford it. The Town has millions in retiring debt.

Much of this money will be committed to new building projects, but surely we can spend some of it on our qualifying seniors. The state also reimburses the Town for qualifying tax credits. The state will help fund the elderly tax credits and can do so at a much more generous level of funding. The tax relief we give now is insufficient. We give a credit of $500 to 18 seniors in town. That credit is paltry compared to an average family property tax bill of $8,525 for this year. The criteria for the current tax credit are too exclusive. To qualify, Seniors must have less than $40,000 in assets in their possession. The current credit is only available to those who make less than $7,000 after Social Security. This current credit is so restrictive that we have seen a 50% decline in enrollment. We have options. Th e state has allowed more generous options. One choice

Senior captain Mortellite sets new school record for TD passes Leads teammates past Ipswich to remain undefeated By Joe Mitchell


f you like offense then last Friday night’s football game at Ipswich was for you. The Lynnfield Football Pioneers kept up their winning ways to remain undefeated after six games by outlasting the home team Tigers, 54-29. With just one more regular season game on tap Friday night at home against Hamilton-Wenham before the Division 5 Super Bowl playoffs get underway on Oct. 27, the Lynnfield boys have come too far to slip up now. Senior quarterback Matt Mortellite hooked up twice with Jason Ndansi for first-half touchdowns that ignited the team’s offensive explosion.

GUEST COMMENTARY | FROM PAGE 5 would be to adjust the income limitations on the current credit. We could even double the size of the credit to $1,000. Another alternative would be to adopt Clause 41C½, which has no asset limit and the income limits are fixed by the state. Last year the state set the limit at $86,000 for married couples. As long as we do not exceed the guidelines, the state will reimburse the town accordingly. Adopting Clause 41C½ would have a real impact. According to the most recent state numbers 284 people could qualify under the state formula. However, the state number is based on individual income tax returns, and does not account for the need to file property tax by household, so the number eligible is a little smaller. Nonetheless that number is far greater than the 18 people under the current restrictive credit. This could impact roughly $379,000, which could be abated to taxpayers, with the town receiving reimbursements from the state. The current credit only abates $13,500 to Lynnfield’s tax payers. As Lynnfield residents, it is time to ask ourselves what priority our elderly have with so many future demands on our tax dollars. This may not

Lynnfield girls’ soccer team enjoys another winning week to stay in the hunt for top spot Four regular season games remain before the postseason begins

By Joe Mitchell


he Lynnfield High School girls’ soccer team is in the middle of a three-way dogfight for first place in the Cape Ann League Kinney Division with North Reading and Newburyport, as the regular season winds down. So last Thursday’s 2-0 win against the Hornets could be quite significant to see which one of these three teams comes out on top. The Pioneers then played non-league Wayland to a scoreless tie last Saturday, followed by

a 1-0 triumph over Manchester Essex Monday afternoon. The Lynnfield girls are now 10-2-2 overall and 10-2-1 in the Kinney Division. “North Reading is always our big rival. They beat us the first time around this year, 2-1,” said coach Mark Vermont.“But Thursday’s game was a pretty evenly played match. We worked on some things and won a lot of 50/50 balls.” Lynnfield led, 1-0, at the half on a goal by Grace Sperling assisted by Kate Mitchell off of a corner kick. In the 59th minute

of the game, they added the all-important insurance marker by Mitchell on a solo effort. Goalie Mackenzie O’Neill came up with six saves to help secure the shutout. “This was a great team win,” said Vermont. The Pioneers then turned their attention to Wayland, a Division 3 squad that plays in the Dual County League. It was a good back-and-forth game that provided the locals with a possible harbinger of things to come in the postseason. Each side had their chances to break the stalemate, but the respective goalies came up big to preserve the tie. Sophomore Amberly Mc-

Carter was in net for Lynnfield. “She’s been working hard all season and deserved this opportunity to start the game,” said Vermont of McCarter. “We had eight corners in the game, but just couldn’t capitalize on them. Wayland only had three corners.” The game against Manchester Essex was also Senior Night, which gave the coaching staff and the home fans a chance to say thank you for their four years of service in the program. Appropriately, in the 74th minute, Sperling, a senior, netted the game-winner from Mitchell via a corner, and Liz Shaievitz, who set up the pass that produced the goal.

“We actually controlled most of the game, but Manchester Essex’s fast forwards helped create chances for them. We had to work for this win,” Vermont said. The Pioneers led in corners, 7-3. But they trailed slightly in shots, 12-10. O’Neill was back in net, and did another great job to preserve the two points. After taking on Pentucket Wednesday night, Oct. 18 (after press deadline), the Lynnfield girls take off for Masco to face the Chieftains on Friday, starting at 3:45 p.m. They will be at Newburyport and Essex Tech next week to wrap up the regular season.

Lynnfield field hockey team beats North Reading to clinch another postseason berth By Joe Mitchell


he Lynnfield High School field hockey team is going back to the state tournament after beating North Reading, 3-1, last Thursday, Oct. 12. The Pioneers were then shutout by undefeated Manchester Essex on Tuesday afternoon by the closest of margins, 2-0. They are now 9-5 overall and 8-5 in the Cape Ann League Kinney Division. The Lynnfield girls probably gave M-E its toughest game of the season to date, as the locals played them to a stand-

still throughout the entire first half. The Hornets eventually got on the scoreboard at the 22:15 mark in the second half. “[Manchester Essex] outshot us. They had more corners, while we only had two shots on net,” said coach Mamie Reardon. “We were hoping to sneak one in and go for the tie against them.” While the Lynnfield de fense was solid, their offensive wishes just didn’t materialize against the stingy Hornets. Goalie Emily Dickey once again did her job to

keep the proceedings close by making seven saves. In the postseason-clinching game against North Reading, it was all tied up at one heading into the halftime break. Lily Rothwell scored the first goal of the game from Ashley Barrett. Rothwell also notched Lynnfield’s second tally assisted by Abby Buckley. Barrett then gave her teammates the all-important insurance marker on a solo effort. Dickey was credited with four saves to help engi-


own number twice for touchdowns from one and 10 yards out. Utilizing Matt’s backup in the fourth quarter, Brett Cohee scampered home from 13 yards out. The Pioneers were able to withstand the punishing runs of Pat Gillis, who had 218 yards in the first half alone, accounting for all but 65 yards of his team’s total output on the ground throughout the entire game. Weidman’s squad would love nothing better than to head into the postseason with a perfect record, and they can achieve that Friday night against the Generals in front of the home fans, starting at 6:30 p.m.

ing strikes in the game, and he also had a rushing touchdown to end up with three scores, which was a seasonhigh for him. The Tigers had a 3-3 overall record heading into the game, but were 2-0 in the Cape Ann League Baker Division and tied with the Pioneers. They, too, needed the win for a better seed in the upcoming Division 6 Super Bowl playoffs. They were enjoying a slim 2927 lead at halftime, but then Lynnfield scored the next 27 points in the second half to turn this game into a rout in a hurry. Mortellite also called his

While Frank drove the family car to work, Florence often bundled up the three youngsters and rowed her canoe across the pond to “the landing” on Highland Avenue, where her wealthy friend picked her up. Roundy’s in the Center was the only store in Lynnfield, but Florence preferred to do her grocery shopping in Wakefield, where she could also visit her family. In winter, the jaunt was easier because her friend could just drive across the frozen pond to the cottage. In 1943 the McShane family left the ancestral enclave on

Scott said a plumbing expansion would allow him and his family to remain in Lynnfield and the article passed by a vote of 167-6. “The Scotts are now longterm residents of Lynnfield,” said Town Moderator Arthur Bourque.

Article 4, which passed 166-8, asked voters to approve a transfer of $25,000 from the town’s Free Cash account to fund the engineering and permitting process of the Beaverdam Brook Culvert Removal Project.

Meadow. In response, Boudreau said the MBTA has agreed to handle the permitting while the town will be responsible for the engineering component. Article 6, which presented a series of changes to the Personnel Bylaw, also passed by a vote of 155-19. Prior to the vote, Michael Griffin, chairman of the Personnel Board, said the town’s employment policies had not been updated since 2005. “I don’t think we’re being early in taking a look at these,” he said, adding that 24 non-union employees would be effected by the revised policies. While highlighting some of the larger changes, Griffin said the Longevity Bonus would increase by $200. “That is competitive with other towns,” he said. Griffin said Sick Leave eligibility would be increased from 120 days to 180 days to match the clerical contracts. There would also be a retirement buyback of 25 percent with a limit of 250 hours. However, Griffin said new employees would not be eligible for the retirement buyback. Regarding benefits for parttime employees, he said vaca-

genealogy has become somewhat of an obsession. Lately he was able to connect with William Ryan’s granddaughter from his first marriage. On a recent visit to Lynnfield, she was delighted to revisit the scenes of her youth at Pillings Pond. Kirk explained, “She was able to fill in so many pieces of the family puzzle.” Using the Registry of Deeds and Town Hall records, Kirk is still in the process of unraveling the former owners, rights of way and access roads affecting his property almost a century ago. Kirk reflected, “It all started with my great-grandmother Margaret. Each of her three husbands had more money than the previous one. She must have been quite a gal.” (Thanks to Kirk Mansfield for sharing this story of Pillings Pond. Send comments to tion time; sick time, paid holidays and bereavement would increase from 17.5 hours per week to 20 hours per week. No changes were made to health insurance coverage. Article 7, which passed by a vote of 145-24, asked residents to adopt the recodification of the Zoning Bylaw. Planning Board Chairman John Faria said one of the biggest changes is that a Table of Uses was added to modernize the bylaw. “There are only a handful of towns that don’t have a Table of Uses,” he said. Although the meeting was scheduled to begin at 7 p.m., there was difficulty in reaching the required quorum of 175 residents. At 7:20 p.m. Bourque said only 160 residents had checked into the meeting. “You can’t vote from home,” said Bourque as he encouraged residents watching on television to come down to Lynnfield Middle School. “It’s a virtual party down here.” By 7:35 p.m., a quorum had been reached. The meeting also saw the first use of electronic voting, which helped to keep business moving swiftly.

nvestment interest is interest paid on money that you borrow to purchase taxable investments. As an example, you may deduct interest expense on a margin loan that you use to purchase an investment such as common stock. You cannot deduct that interest if you use the funds to purchase a tax-exempt security such as tax-free municipal bonds or if you use the funds to purchasesomething for personal use. There is a cap on deductibility. The amount of the investment interest deduction is limited to your net investment income. Any unused investment interest can be carried over into future tax years, without any expiration. To calculate your net investment income, and therefore how much investment interest you can deduct,

add up all of your taxable interest income, ordinary dividends and even net capital gains and qualified dividends (assuming you make an election to treat the qualified dividends and net capital gain income as ordinary income). From that, subtract any investment-related miscellaneous deductions you actually claim on your tax return on Schedule A, Itemized Deductions, such as investment advisory fees, IRA custodial fees, certain legal and accounting fees, safe deposit box fees, etc. As an example, assume you have $20,000 in investment interest expense, $20,000 of taxable investment income and $5,000 of investment-related miscellaneous itemized deductions, and that only $1,000 of the $5,000 you actually get to claim as a deduction on Schedule A due to the 2% of adjusted gross income limitation. Your investment interest expense deduction would be $19,000. The remaining $1,000 of un-

used investment interest expense can be carried over to future years. Qualified dividends are not considered investment income for purposes of computing the investment interest expense deduction, because of the preferential tax treatment they receive. You can, however, choose to pay ordinary income tax rates on your qualified dividend income and then have your qualified dividend income be treated as investment income for purposes of calculating your investment interest expense deduction. The same holds true for a longterm capital gain. Often times, investors receive a K-1 form for an investment in a real estate limited partnership. The K-1 form will contain a separate line item for the investor’s share of investment interest expense. The investor will not be able to claim the pass-through deduction unless he or she has a sufficient amount of investment income to offset it.

Beacon Hill Roll Call By Bob Katzen THE HOUSE AND SENATE: Beacon Hill Roll Call records local representatives and senators on roll calls from the week of October 9-13. $485,559 TO CITIES AND TOWNS FOR EARLY VOTING COSTS (H 3951) House approved 154-0, Senate rejected 9-28, an amendment to a fiscal 2017 supplemental budget that closes out the books on fiscal 2017 that ended on June 30. The amendment would reimburse cities and towns $485,559 for the costs of the new law that allowed early voting in the November 8, 2016 election. Early voting begins 10 business days before any primary or general election and ends two days before the election. Amendment supporters said that this new law is an unfunded mandate forced upon cities and towns. They argued the budgets of cities and towns are tight and reimbursement of this money is important to them. Amendment opponents said they support reimbursing cities and towns but argued this amendment would be amending the fiscal year 2018 budget and adding the funds through that vehicle. They argued that the purpose of the supplemental budget was to close out fiscal year 2017, not add funds to the fiscal year 2018 budget. (A “ Yes” vote is for the $ 4 8 5 , 5 5 9 . A “ N o” v o t e i s against it.) Rep. Bradley Jones Yes Sen. Thomas McGee No FUNDING FOR SUBSTANCE USE PREVENTION (H 3951) House 47-108, rejected an amendment providing funding for substance use prevention and treatment programs from the revenue generated by the 20 percent tax on future marijuana sales in the state. The funding would be the lesser of $30 million or 15 percent of the total tax revenue. A portion of that revenue would then be distributed on a per-pupil basis, to the public schools

to provide substance abuse education, prevention, intervention and professional development and training. Amendment supporters said that without this funding, these programs are not guaranteed any money from the marijuana revenue. Instead, the decision of whether to fund these programs and how much to fund them would be made annually by the Legislature. They argued that the guaranteed annual funding of these programs is important to the effort to combat the opioid epidemic. Amendment opponents said that they support the need for more opiate treatment resources, but argued that earmarking specific dollar amounts before the marijuana law is even implemented and before any revenue is generated, would be premature. They said there is no doubt that the House leadership is committed to funding these programs. (A “Yes” vote is for the funding. A “No” vote is against it.) Rep. Bradley Jones Yes BAN BUMP STOCKS - HOUSE VERSION (H 3951) House 152-3, approved an amendment that supporters say would ban the sale, purchase or ownership of “bump stock” devices for weapons. Opponents of the amendment disagree and say that the wording of the bill is vague and that the words bump stock do not appear anywhere in the bill. Bump stocks are devices that are attached to rifles, shotguns or firearms, other than a magazine, to increase the weapon’s rate of fire and mimic a fully automatic weapon that can fire hundreds of shots in succession. The measure was filed in response to the recent massacre in Las Vegas where the shooter used 12 of these devices, allowing him to shoot, kill and injure more victims.Violators under this new law would be sentenced to between three and 20 years in prison. “This legislation will ensure that no one in Massachusetts can legally possess a ‘bump stock,’ a device de-

signed to increase the deadliness of these already deadly weapons,” said the amendment’s sponsor Rep. David Linsky (D-Natick). “These devices were created by gun manufacturers as a workaround of the federal law banning the sale and possession of automatic weapons, and there is absolutely no place for them in a civilized society.” “While we cannot bring those precious lives back, today ’s bump stock ban prevents another tragedy from taking place in Massachusetts, and builds on our progress promoting sensible gun safety in the commonwealth,” said House Ways and Means chairman Jeffrey Sánchez (D-Boston) “The issue I have with this legislation is that the words ‘bump stock’ was nowhere to be found in the final language,” said Rep. Donald Ber thiaume (R-Spencer), noting that the language was ambiguous. “Of course, I would vote to ban bump stocks if that was the real intent of this amendment. He argued that an important issue like this should not be attached to a supplemental budget but rather “should have gone through the committee hearing process and then to the House and Senate like every other legislative proposal.” “It is a poorly drafted and vaguely worded amendment,” echoed Rep. Peter Durant (R-Spencer). “While I don’t think it is unreasonable to prevent people from getting devices that turn their semi-automatic weapon into an automatic weapon, this amendment has the effect of making any modification to a firearm that could conceivably increase the rate of fire illegal and subject you to at least three years in prison. Simply making a bolt action rifle slide easier, and therefore work faster could be determined illegal.” Durant noted that the interpretation of this law will be left to un-elected state bureaucrats who can change depending on the administration in the corner office.” (A “ Yes” vote is for the amendment. A “No” vote is against it.) Rep. Bradley Jones Yes BAN BUMP STOCKS - SENATE VERSION (S 2177) Senate 38-0, approved its own version of an amendment banning the sale, purchase or ownership of “bump stock” devices for weapons and classifying them under the same law that governs machine guns. The punish-

ment for violating the law would be the same as it is for machine guns - 18 months to life in prison. The Senate version of the bill used the words “bump stock,” so unlike the House, there were no charges that the Senate language was vague. “This amendment is a necessary and appropriate response to the dangers inherent in these deadly devices,” said the sponsor of the amendment Sen. Cynthia Creem (D-Newton). “The horror of the mass shootings in Las Vegas is unfortunately just the latest incident which calls out for the adoption of more sensible gun laws both here and nationally.” “Too many parents have had to bury their children, too many movie-goers have had a fun night out turn into a nightmare and too many Americans fear for their safety and the safety of their families,” said Sen. Eric Lesser (D-Longmeadow). “It is time for us to step up and say we will not tolerate this senseless killing anymore -or the ease with which it is carried out.” (A “Yes” vote is for the ban.) Sen. Thomas McGee Yes HANDICAPPED PARKING (S 2168) Senate 37-0, approved and sent to the House legislation cracking down on the misuse of handicapped parking placards including increasing the period of license suspension for wrongful use or display of a placard from 30 to 60 days for a first offense and from 90 to 120 days for a second offense. Other provisions include allowing the Registr y of Motor Vehicles to revoke a handicapped plate or parking placard if it finds that the person was ineligible or that a placard was obtained falsely; prohibiting the obstruction of the expiration date or placard number and subjecting an offender to a $50 fine; prohibiting making a false statement on an application for a placard and imposing a fine of $500 for a first offense and $1,000 for subsequent offenses; and prohibiting falsely making, stealing or forging a placard and subjecting an offender to escalating fines or imprisonment based upon the number of documents involved. Supporters said it is time to crack down on these offenders who are taking spaces that should be used by a handicapped person. They noted a recent report by the Inspector General revealed widespread abuse of these placards including more than 300 cars in downtown

Boston using placards issued to other people. They noted that many placards still in use belonged to people who had died and said the placards can be used to park all day at most metered spaces, resulting in millions of dollars in lost meter fees to cities and towns. “ The misuse of handicapped parking placards robs municipalities of muchneeded revenues and prevents persons with disabilities from finding accessible parking,” said the bill’s sponsor Sen. Eileen Donoghue (D-Lowell). “This bill will benefit both disabled individuals and local governments.” (A “Yes” vote is for the bill.) Sen. Thomas McGee Yes 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 9-13, the House met for a total of four hours and 44 minutes and Senate met for a total of six hours and 24 minutes. MON.OCTOBER 9 No House session No Senate session TUES.

Fall Harvest Makes For Healthier Eating


eople who regularly eat fiber-rich fruit, legumes, vegetables, and whole grains are often reported to be healthier than those who do not, and the fiber in those foods deserves some of the credit. Women daily requirements for fiber is 21-25 grams and for men, 30-38 grams; on average we only get about 11 grams of fiber per day. A healthy high-fiber diet may help prevent type 2-diabetes by improving the way your body responds to insulin and lowering levels of blood sugar. Also, fiber may lower cholesterol levels and stave off heart disease. Additionally, it is widely known that fiber helps with digestive health. This time of the year with pumpkins, winter squash and other starchy vegetables at their peak, it is easier to get more fiber in your diet. Just half a cup of pumpkin puree contains 16 percent of daily needs and only 50 calories. Adding these fall harvest staples to your dishes will boost the fiber content. Add them to rice and pasta dishes or mash by themselves. They puree perfectly for a hearty soup such as butternut squash soup. Other fiber rich grains include, bulgur used to make tabouleh, wheat berries, whole-wheat bread and barley; they are ideal for casseroles and baked dishes.

Legumes are excellent sources of fiber. Just half a cup of cooked or canned beans contains about 7 grams of fiber; half a cup of cooked lentils contains about 8 grams. Adding beans will boost the fiber content of any meal. Add them to your salads and soups or puree them and use as a spread.

A simple fruit based dessert makes for delicious and healthy eating.

Fruits and vegetables are also great sources of fiber. Make them your ‘go to’ snack instead of the refined and processed snack foods. Give whole-grain crackers and veggies with hummus (chick-pea dip) a try for a filling snack. Or try a delicious dessert made with fruits. Eating healthier is easy when

fiber-rich foods are part of the meal plan. Cooking with more plant foods that are naturally rich in fiber and nutrients make a substantial contribution to overall well-being. Bring Eating From Within to your workplace! Contact me to learn more about my corporate wellness programs.

The Advocate’s Super Trivia Quiz

O B ITUARY Elaine (Lospennato) Garvey


t is with great sadness that the family of Elaine (Lospennato) Garvey of Norwell, formerly of Lynnfield, announces her passing on Saturday, October 7, 2017, at the age of 62 years after a short and brave battle with pancreatic cancer. Devoted wife of 31 years to John, and caring mother to Laura, Elaine is also survived by her sister Anne Morin of Byfield, her father-in-law and mother-in-law John and Carole Garvey of Osterville, and a loving extended family of inlaws, aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews. Elaine was pre-

deceased by her parents Americo and Ruth (Hutchings) Lospennato of Lynnfield. Empathetic, warm and wise, Elaine dedicated her life to family and friends, sharing her love and clever humor. She was passionate about music, dance, and anything to do with her favorite place in the world, Martha’s Vineyard. Prior to raising her family, she was educated at Boston State College, the Chamberlain School of Retailing and studied music at the Boston Conservatory. She had an exciting and fulfilling career as a retail executive, which included opening and managing new stores across the country as retailers like Dansk International were growing. She later became the controller for her husband’s business. Elaine served as a member of the Nor-

well Cultural Council, The Norwell Public Schools PTO, and volunteered for the American Red Cross. Inspired by the beauty of the natural world, and with a desire to preserve its special places, Elaine was a committed supporter of the Trustees of Reservations.
