Monument honoring fire and police unveiled at Emerson Park By Christopher Roberson


eabody’s finest and bravest recently gathered at Emerson Park with residents and elected officials for the unveiling of the new Peabody Fire and Police Memorial. During the Oct. 14 ceremony, Mayor Edward Bettencourt said there are few individuals who can truly be successful police officers or firefighters. “It is a very special calling. Each day we are reminded that the men and women who serve as firefighters and police officers are worthy of our great respect and eternal gratitude,” he said. “This beautiful new memorial is a fitting tribute which will stand to honor their service and sacrifice on our behalf.” The monument itself features two life-size bronze statues of a police officer and a firefighter with a flame in the middle, which alternates between blue and red every minute. Although it came at a cost, Bettencourt knew that the memorial was within the city’s reach. “Peabody rallied like we knew that it would and the result speaks for itself,” he said.

The idea to construct the monument came from Police Officer Justin Cecil and Fire Captain Dale Kimball, who have been friends for 35

School Committee and City Council debates remain calm By Christopher Roberson


ith the exception of a few minor disagreements here and there, civility prevailed during the recent School Committee and City Council debates. During the Oct. 17 School Committee debate, Jarrod Hochman, a committee member for the past eight years, said the school budget has “remained relatively stagnant in the past few years.” He said the result has been a lack of funding for the arts as well as for the purchase of history and social studies textbooks, which have not been updated in 20 years. Challenger Andrew Arnotis said more money needs to be invested in the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) curriculum as that field continues to

become increasingly popular. “I would like to see us put a magnifying glass on that,” he said. Member Beverley Ann Griffin Dunne, who has sat on the committee since 2004, said additional funding was needed to increase salaries. “We worked on that,” she said, adding that higher salaries are being implemented incrementally. She also agreed with Arnotis regarding STEM funding. “We need to prepare our students for life in tomorrow,” said Griffin Dunne. Speaking about building space, challenger Linda Quadros Lopez said more space is needed at Center Elementary School, as the cafeteria, gymnasium and auditorium are all crammed into the same room.


years. While it took five years to build the monument, Kimball said Cecil was a “typical perfect teammate” throughout the entire process.

“This hallowed ground is a symbol of courage,” said Kimball. Cecil commended his colleagues from both depart-

ments for their unyielding dedication and bravery. “You are the blue and red lines between civilization and chaos,” he said. “Most people run from danger, these people run towards it.” Cecil and Kimball also recognized the names of the fallen. Saugus Police Officer Harold Vitale died on June 18, 1985, when he was dragged more than 1,000 feet after what began as a routine traffic stop. In 2011, Peabody firefighter James Rice died of smoke inhalation in a threealarm fire just two days before Christmas. Peabody firefighter Daniel Pimenta died on July 30 of this year after being struck by a car while he was out for a bike ride. In addition, Cecil called attention to Sergeant John Epstein, who was in attendance, of the 84th Precinct of the New York City Police Department. Cecil said that in 2014, two of Epstein’s men, Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos, were gunned down simply because they were police officers. In response, Bettencourt, Police Chief Thomas Griffin and 20 police officers had traveled

he process of renovating Bonkers Plaza is officially underway following three-and-

real excited about this project,” he said, adding that Bonkers has been a Lowell Street staple for a number of years and “Everybody knows the Bonkers parking lot.” Bettencourt also said the project will be divided into two phases. The first phase calls for demolition of the existing Bonkers Fun House and construction of a new entertainment center as well as additional retail space. The second phase will involve renovating the row of retail stores that are adjacent to the current Bonkers Funhouse. Councillor-at-Large Thomas Walsh said this was one of the first projects he tackled after being elected to the council in 2013. “The day is finally here,” he said. The Bonkers property was purchased four years ago by Alfred Yebba, president of Yebba Realty Ventures, for $5.75 million from SAMGA Corp. Prior to the sale, SAMGA had owned the property since May 1999, according to the Assessor’s Office. “It’s a gateway area leading into the city,” said Yebba, adding that he made the purchase with the intention of creating a new Bonkers. He said the project, which is expected to cost approximately $21 million, could be completed by 2019. It will increase the footprint of the site from 42,000 square feet to 65,000 square feet.

Saslaw looking to retain Ward 5 seat By Christopher Roberson

ties in Ward 5. “In these days of continued development and renovations, I will always strive to make quality of life issues be heard when they are in jeopardy,” he said. “I am very proud of the work my fellow councillors and I have accomplished these past four years, and I also support the efforts of our mayor and his team. Peabody continues to be a great place to raise a family, enjoy your golden years and own a business.”


fter the city invested $25 million to fund three projects, Ward 5 Councillor Joel Saslaw intends to remain on the City Council to see them through to fruition. These projects are renovating Bonkers Plaza, constructing a new corporate office and showroom for Detour Cars and a new Herb Chambers Sprinter dealership on Route 1 South. Saslaw, who is the council’s president, said he truly enjoys representing his constituents as well as working with other city leaders. “I have built strong relationships with both the Mayor’s Office and the various city departments to get these issues resolved in a timely fashion,” he said. “Helping people on a daily basis resolving their issues is the most fulfilling thing I can do as Ward 5 councillor.

Billboard change could trigger Special Permit violation By Christopher Roberson


ity councillors were not pleased to learn that Lamar Advertising has plans to change the face of the billboard at 1 Rear Newbury St. from a digital format to a static format without the council’s authorization to amend the Special Permit. However, during the Oct. 12 City Council meeting, City Solicitor Michael Smerczynski said Lamar should not be held accountable. “Lamar doesn’t own the Special Permit, Total Outdoor [Corp.] is, in fact, the permit holder on that billboard,” he said. Smerczynski said the structure has remained blank since a Cease and Desist Order was issued by the city earlier this year. “A digital [billboard] was removed, but a static [billboard] was not installed,”he said.“There was an attempt to put up a static billboard, but that was stopped, it wasn’t accomplished.” Smerczynski was of the opinion that there was no wrongdo-

ing.“I don’t see you taking a vote on the violation of a Special Permit,” he said. If work had continued on the billboard after the Cease and Desist Order was issued, Smerczynski said, the city certainly could have taken action at that time by filing an injunction in court. Councillor-at-Large Anne Manning-Martin disagreed with Smerczynski as to whether or not the terms of the Special Permit were violated. “To say there’s no violation after a Cease and Desist [is issued] is absurd,” she said. She also maintained that Lamar owns the billboard rather than Total Outdoor. “It says Lamar right on the billboard,” said Manning-Martin. “We have a billboard that violates our ordinance. Lamar did it, Lamar should be here answering for it.” Manning-Martin also said that Lamar owns “12-15” other billboards in the city and was concerned that the situation

could repeat itself. Therefore, she wanted to know what the plans are for the billboard going forward. “This thing is just standing there with nothing on it,”she said.“I want to know what their plans are with that hunk of junk that’s on the highway in my city.” Ward 6 Councillor Barry Sinewitz said he did not appreciate how Lamar bypassed the council like it was not even there. He also said Lamar never filed a request with the council to have the Special Permit transferred from Total Outdoor. “This is so insane; the people are trying to take away our power and make us irrelevant – you know I really resent that,” he said. In response, Attorney John Keilty, counsel for Lamar, said a transfer request was filed on June 8 and the current plan is to put up a static billboard. Michael Murphy, general manager of Lamar’s Boston-Worcester office, shouldered the responsibility for what had transpired. “It was our fault, we screwed up. We did not do it the right way,” he said, adding that he knew nothing of the situation until June.

However, Sinewitz was not impressed, saying Lamar’s management knew exactly what needed to happen regarding the Special Permit and simply chose not to follow the required procedure. “This isn’t your first rodeo; this isn’t a mom and pop business,” he said. “If I had my way, you would get fined and Cease and Desist Orders on every single one of those billboards.” The council voted unanimously to table the matter. In other news, Deanne Healey, president of the Peabody Area Chamber of Commerce, was on hand to update the council about the activities of Peabody Main Streets. She said that since Peabody Main Streets was formed in 2014, 17 of the organization’s 54 priorities have been fulfilled. Healey said Peabody Main Streets’ Economic Vitality Committee has secured funding for a transportation study and the Promotions Committee has held a number of successful events, including the Antique Car Show and the Pop Up Pubs. “People will come downtown if you give them a reason,”she said. In addition to reestablishing loans for revitalizing downtown,

Healey said, the Design Committee has been working to install additional black streetlights, outdoor clocks and outdoor pianos. Healey also addressed two topics that are often raised by residents: funding and the attention on downtown Peabody. Regarding funding, she said Peabody Main Streets is a nonprofit organization that is funded in part by Community Block Grants. As to why there has been so much attention on the city’s downtown area, Healey said that is the best place to invest any money that Peabody Main Streets receives from the state. “When grant money is available to help us, that’s where we have to use it,” she said. Councillor-at-Large Thomas Walsh said Peabody Main Streets has done well in terms of highlighting all that Peabody has to offer. “There are some activities that we have that Salem doesn’t offer,” he said. Ward 2 Councillor Peter McGinn said restaurants typically see business increase by at least 20 percent whenever Peabody Main Streets hosts an event.“The

Car barrels into Kappy’s, sends glass flying By Christopher Roberson


mployees and customers at Kappy’s Fine Wine & Spirits got the scare of a lifetime when a Toyota Camry came careening through the tall glass display window – twice. According to police, the crashes occurred shortly before 4 p.m. on Oct. 12. If they

had occurred less than one minute sooner, driver Francis Marino, 83, of Danvers, would have struck two customers on the other side of the glass as they were leaving the store. Although media outlets reported that the crashes were caused by Marino’s foot being stuck under the brake pedal, Police Capt. Dennis Bonauito said that was not the case. “That does not appear to be what happened; it was a medical-related issue,” he said, adding that the same medical problem caused Marino to drive through the window a second time. Because of privacy regulations under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, Bonauito could not provide

any further details about the cause of the crash. Although Marino’s speed at the time of the crash remains unknown, Bonauito said speeding does not appear to have been a factor. The use of drugs and/or alcohol was also ruled out. Bonauito said one individual received a cut on the leg from flying glass and was treated at the scene. Marino was taken to Lahey Medical Center with mi-

nor injuries. No other injuries were reported. Bonauito also said that Marino was issued a written warning for “failure to use care.” “It’s a simple violation,” said Bonauito. “He’s not facing any criminal charges.” However, police reported the collision to the State Registry of Motor Vehicles (RMV) as an Immediate Threat. Under that regulation, the RMV has the authority to revoke Mari-

no’s driver’s license for an indefinite period of time. The amount of monetary damage caused by the crash was not available. Representatives from Kappy’s could not be reached for comment. Bonauito said he does not consider such collisions to be a growing problem, although this could be subject to change by an “aging population.” “It happens from time to time,” he said.

Senior Center hosts 15th Model Ship Show By Christopher Roberson


rom schooners to fishing boats to ships in a bottle, approximately 200 model ships were on display at the Senior Center for the 15th Annual Model Ship Show. Model ship builder Marcy Consalvo said shipbuilding has been a hobby of his for 70 years. “I’ve been building these things since I was 12 years old – I’m 82 now,” he said during the show, which was held on Oct. 14-15. Consalvo also said shipbuilding is quite beneficial in terms of keeping the mind active. He said some of the ships on display harkened back to the 13th century while others were as current as the 20th century. Consalvo also said many of the ships have been made by hand using wood, plastic or paper card stock. “I would say 80 percent of them are scratch built, that’s a very high percentage,” said Consalvo, adding that The Hanna, built by resident Philip Fournier was one of the larger and more impressive ships at the show. Consalvo said that when the event began in 2002, it was actually a small series of shows held during the week that only attracted “three or four” model ship builders. In an effort to bolster interest, Consalvo said he recommended hosting the event during the weekend. Following the schedule change, Consalvo said the event has become the largest model ship show in New England attracting more than 30 ship builders from Boston, Peabody, Salem, Newburyport and New Hampshire.

Specializing in making ships in a bottle, Alexander Bellinger of Atlantic Ship in Bottle said there are four methods of getting a ship inside of a bottle without damaging it. He also said there is one thing that each of the methods has in common. “Everything goes through the neck,” said Bellinger. Although the most efficient way of putting a ship in bottle is to collapse the masts and slide it through the neck, Bellinger said it is still a very complex Award-winning shipbuilder Alexander process that takes years to master.

Tanner boys’ soccer team earns two important NEC wins By Greg Phipps


he Peabody boys’ soccer team did something it hasn’t done in a while by beating Northeastern Conference (NEC) nemesis Beverly for the second time in a season. The Tanners completed the season sweep last Friday with a 3-0 home win over the Panthers. On Tuesday, the Tanners recovered from a lackluster first-half showing to earn a come-from-behind 2-1 victory over Marblehead at Veterans Memorial Stadium. The two NEC victories brought the Tanners to 7-5-1 overall on the season as they close in on a playoff berth. Peabody head coach Stan McKeen wasn’t thrilled about the team’s performance over the first 40 minutes of Tuesday’s contest as the Tanners trailed 1-0 at halftime. But he was pleased to see the tide turn in period two. Jonathan Alves tied it with about 21 minutes remaining when he broke through the Marblehead defense and poked a grounder into the far right corner of the net. Peabody notched the game-winner with 3:24 showing on the clock. Josh Atemkeng collected a pass from Ryan D’Alleva and booted one home from close range. Atemkeng was robbed of a goal just seconds earlier. “We came out flat today. We weren’t good in the first half, and I’d say the same was true for about the first 10 to 15 minutes of the second half,” McKeen observed after the game. “As good as we played against Beverly, we were just as bad in the first half today. We finally started to put the pressure on them over the final 25 minutes. Without a doubt we controlled the play at the end.” Alves, Kevin Aroke, Austin Silva and Giovani Lumaj had golden opportunities to add to the goal count during the second-half surge, but Marblehead’s goalie was up to

the task and made the Tanners earn it. McKeen credited midfielder Aroke with one his best games of the year – “He was all over the field” – and the defense overall for its “superb” play. He also cited the importance of Tuesday's victory and avoiding a potential letdown after the huge win against Beverly last week.

“It ’s a big win because I believe we thought we could just show up today and everything would fall into place,” McKeen said. “We bounced back from a poor start. We were resilient and got the job done.” In last week’s victory over the Panthers, Alves scored twice and Silva nailed a direct kick to lead Peabody.

Football Tanners slam Malden for second win By Greg Phipps


he Peabody Tanners can only wish their entire season to date was more reflective of their two wins. The Tanners earned victory No. 2 last Friday by slam-

ming the door on Malden, 40-0, on the road and improving to 2-4. Peabody has posted shutouts in both of its wins, outscoring the opposition by a combined 61-0 in the process. With a home game against Northeastern Conference rival Beverly this Friday (scheduled 7 p.m. kickoff ), Peabody will be looking for its first triumph at Veterans Memorial Stadium this season. Head coach Mark Bettencourt and his Tanners still hold out slim hopes for a playoff berth entering the Beverly matchup. Following last Friday’s win, Bettencourt said his squad was hungry to taste victory after finishing on the short end in four of its first five games. Being opportunistic was a major factor in defeating Malden. “We took advantage of their mistakes, and that’s what high school football is all about,” Bettencourt told the press afterward. “Dariel [Canela] had a great game [on defense]. He was in the backfield all game, disrupting what they wanted to do.” Canela had four sacks to lead a defensive effort that featured a 26-yard interception return for a touchdown by Eric DeMayo and fumble recoveries by Marcus Barker and Sam Mastromatteo, who also teamed with Chris Glass to block a punt. Overall, Peabody surrendered 41 yards total offense (-4 on the ground) and gave up just three first downs. After going to a passing attack in their loss to Masconomet a week earlier, the Tanners opted for an offensive approach they’re more familiar with against Malden. It paid

huge dividends as FB DeMayo plowed his way to 144 yards rushing, including a 40-yard TD jaunt to open the scoring. Peabody grossed 225 yards by way of the run and only nine through the air, as quarterback Jonell Espinal attempted two passes with one completion. It was strictly ground-and-pound on this night. “We attacked between the guard and tackles today, and we found some holes,”said Bettencourt of the rushing game. “We did miss some blocks, and we’re lucky enough that Eric and Noah [Freedman] were athletic enough to avoid some tacklers.”

tough Northeastern Conference (NEC) loss at Danvers two weeks ago doesn’t appear to have deterred the Peabody volleyball team in any way. Since that defeat, the Tanners have reeled off four consecutive wins to improve to 11-3 overall as of early this week. Head

coach Lisa Keene said defense has been a big key to the team’s performance. “We have a very strong defensive base with Tatiana Correia at libero, Martyna Kot at right side and Joanna Bampi, Bianca Chouinard and Jillian Alimonti taking care of the outside,” she ob-

Tanner girls’ soccer team takes down Big Blue for 4th straight win By Greg Phipps


fter suffering their first Northeastern Conference (NEC) loss in nearly three full seasons two weeks ago, the Peabody girls’ soccer team nailed down their fourth win in a row Tuesday night at Veterans Memorial Stadium. But they had to sweat it out to the end. Goals from Emily Nelson and Jillian Arigo and another by Ava Marotta gave the Tanners a seemingly invincible 3-0 advantage with 23 minutes remaining before the visiting Swampscott Big Blue were awarded a direct kick, which they made good on, and then a penalty kick with two minutes to go, which was also successful, to turn what looked like a pressure-free win into a tight contest. When it was over, the Tanners came away with a 3-2 victory to improve to 7-2-2 overall and 5-11 in the NEC. Peabody head coach Dennis Desroches was a little annoyed at the free-kick plays awarded to Swampscott late in the game. “They were both good shots by [Swampscott forward] Hayley Bernhardt but we should have had the shutout. To give it up on a direct kick and a penalty kick is disappointing, but we need to minimize our fouls. Outside of those two plays, I was happy with our play,” he said. Desroches added that it was also a case of his team taking and maintaining control and not letting up. “I thought for a little while we started to play their game and got away from what we do best,” he explained. The Tanners lone first-period score came on an odd

VOLLEYBALL | FROM PAGE 10 served. “Offensively, we have quite a few weapons: Serena Laro at middle, who leads [the team] in kills, and Alimonti on the outside. Kot, Chouinard, Bampi and Ann Manning have also made huge contributions. Rachel Coleman has been awesome as the setter and leads our team in service points.”

play when Nelson collided with the Swampscott goalkeeper while going to the net. Jillian Arigo was in front to knock in the rebound of Nelson’s shot. Marotta launched a pretty shot from the right wing over the goalie’s outstretched arms for the second tally eight minutes into the second half. Nelson then scored off the rebound of her own shot with 22:32 left. Colleen Crotty got an assist on the play. Desroches credited Arigo for providing “great recov-

ery defense; she broke a lot of plays. She was big for us tonight.” Jordan Muse was called on to make five saves in goal for the Tanners. In a convincing 8-1 win over Medford last Friday, Peabody got goals from six different players. Amber Kiricoples and Arigo scored two each, and Nelson, Aja Alimonti, Sarah Buckley and Hailey Baker had single tallies. Goalies Muse and Shelby Doucette teamed up to stop eight shots.

Victory No. 11 came on the road against Lynn Classical, 3-1, Monday. After rolling to a 25-12 win in the first set, the Tanners fell, 25-17, in game two before regrouping to take the next two sets by scores of 25-11 and 25-21. Kot nailed seven kills and Coleman dished out 31 assists to go with eight aces. Correia had a strong defensive outing. Despite having been defeated

twice by Danvers this year, Keene said conference title hopes are not lost. “We still have a chance at the NEC title as long as we beat Marblehead. The division is split into small and large. We have a few other tough matches coming up, so it’s still anyone’s game,” said Keene, who added that Peabody ends the regular season against a “very tough” Hamilton-Wenham team.

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.)

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 $485,559. A “No” vote is against it.) Rep. Theodore Speliotis Rep. Thomas Walsh Sen. Joan Lovely

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. Theodore Speliotis Rep. Thomas Walsh

No No

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 designed 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 Berthiaume (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

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 punishment 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. Joan Lovely


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 Registry 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 much-needed 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. Joan Lovely


HOW LONG WAS LAST WEEK’S SESSION? Beacon Hill Roll Call tracks the length of time that the House and Senate were in session each week. Many legislators say that legislative sessions are only one aspect of the Legislature’s job and that a lot of important work is done outside of the House and Senate chambers. They note that their jobs also involve committee work, research, constituent work and other matters that are important to their districts. Critics say that the Legislature does not meet regularly or long enough to debate and vote in public view on the thousands of pieces of legislation that have been filed. They note that the infrequency and brief length of sessions are misguided and lead to irresponsible late-night sessions and a mad rush to act on dozens of bills in the days immediately preceding the end of an annual session. During the week of October 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. October 10 House 11:03 a.m. to 11:14 a.m. Senate 11:13 a.m. to 11:22 a.m. Wed. October 11 House 11:05 a.m. to 3:28 p.m. No Senate session Thurs. October 12 House 11:03 a.m. to 11:13 a.m. Senate 11:07 a.m. to 5:22 p.m. Fri. October 13 No House session No Senate session
