A day of reflection Window of Saugus Police Officer Harold L. Vitale finds joy in scholarships given in her late husband’s honor By Mark E. Vogler his time of year usually stirs up bad memories and heartache for Eileen Vitale, the widow of the late Saugus Police Officer Harold L. Vitale. Last Sunday – Father’s Day – was especially difficult, as it marked the 32nd anniversary that Officer Vitale was killed in the line of duty. “June 18 is always a tough day for me, it always has been and always will be,” Mrs. Vitale said last Saturday morning, as she joined a small gathering at the Ballard Street park named in honor of Officer Vitale. But it was evident from the smile that beamed across her face that she enjoyed the occasion – the 23rd annual Vitale Memorial Fund Scholarship Awards Ceremony. Seven students from area communities – three of them the children of police officers – each received a $1,000 scholarship this year. “I love to see the recipients get the rewards for their hard work,”

cording to Les Vitale, of Peabody, a brother of the late Saugus officer and president of the fund. “Despite the years we enjoy the opportunity to award scholarships to these kids,” Les Vitale said “His premature death meant he missed a lot, like his children’s graduations, their marriages, the birth of grandchildren, but we carry on for him. This year marks 23 consecutive years of granting scholarships – we couldn’t be prouder,” he said.


SCHOLARSHIP RECIPIENT: PVMHS graduate Chloe Gizzi, left, received a scholarship check from Bob Vitale at the Vitale Memorial Fund Scholarship Award Ceremony last Saturday in Saugus. Bob Vitale is a brother of the late Harold L. Vitale, the Saugus police officer who was killed in the line of duty 32 years ago. This marked the 23rd year that scholarships were presented to area students in memory of Officer Vitale.

Mrs. Vitale said in an interview after the ceremony. “It’s good for them and it’s good for me. It’s great that we’re able to continue to do this – to honor Harold and to

keep his memory alive,” she said. The Vitale Memorial Fund has presented scholarships totaling $120,000 to 120 students over the past two-plus decades, ac-

An optimistic Bettencourt presents 2018 Budget By Melanie Higgins ast Thursday the city approved its annual budget. The budget calls for a $5.1 million increase, bringing this years’ budget up to $164,517,574 (a 3.2% increase from last year). Mayor Ted Bettencourt expressed optimism at the city’s future and satisfaction with the city’s continuing reputation for exceptional value. Here are some basic facts about the 2018 budget: –Up $5.1 million (to $164,517,574 – 3.2% increase) –The average annual residential tax bill might increase approximately $156.73 –Preliminary estimates indicate that Residential Values will increase by 5%. –Peabody remains having the 2nd lowest tax bill in Essex County. –Investments will be focused in four major areas: Education, Public Safety, Infrastructure, and Quality of Life “My message for you tonight is a positive one,” Bettencourt began. “Although our budget obligations have increased, we are still able to invest in Peabody’s future thanks to our city’s financial strength and thanks to the strong partnership we have forged together.” Bettencourt touched on four major areas that the city will be targeting with its increased tax revenues: Education, Public safe-


ty, Infrastructure, and Quality of Life. In the area of Education, spending is up 2.3%. The School Department will be focusing mainly on improving its Guidance Department. Superintendent Herb Levine has emphasized his belief that the effort to improve guidance will be what Peabody’s schools need to rise in their ranking. Despite the increased funds, the schools will be cutting many staff, owing to the schools’ decrease in enrollment. In the area of Public Safety, the city is adding eight new firefighters. Adding more firefighters, the mayor said, “increases the safety of our residents, but also our firefighters themselves.” The additions will ensure that there are at least three firefighters at each of the city’s five fire departments “at all times.” In the area of Infrastructure, the city is making investments to the city’s downtown area. The High School will also see upgrades to its roof this summer. In the area of Quality of life, the city is undertaking the Peabody Square “redesign project” and downtown revitalization. The mayor said it is also working to enhance open spaces. Bettencourt thanked the City Council in closing: “Together we have invested in Peabody’s future, improving quality of life and maintaining affordability that has long been Peabody’s calling card.”

Peabody Veterans Memorial High School student honored All of the recipients are college-bound and each has a special connection to the Vitale family – either through friendships or ties to law enforcement. “I’m the third one in my family to receive the scholarship,” said Chloe Gizzi, of Peabody, a graduate of Peabody Veterans Memorial High School

(PVMHS). “For years, I’ve heard about the Vitale name. This scholarship is very important to me,” she said. Gizzi, a member of the National Honor Society, enrolled in many Advanced Placement Courses at PVMHS and was active in student government – serving as Student Council President. She played Soccer and Lacrosse, captaining both teams and winning numerous awards and recognition. She also caught the attention of multiple college scouts. She was accepted at Bentley University and Babson College – being recruited heavily for soccer by both schools. She plans to attend Bentley in the fall. “Her family are close personal friends of my family and her siblings are prior Vitale Memorial Fund recipients,” Les Vitale said. Christina A. Gizzi was a 2011 recipient and Christo-


Going out on top Garabedian says he will not seek re-election to City Council By James Mitchell olitical careers, whether on a national, state or city level, can easily be measured in terms of success not by votes alone, but by self-worth; if one can look back with one’s head held high and still be smiling, then you’ve done something right. In a recent interview with the Peabody Advocate, longtime City Councillor-at-Large Michael Garabedian is calling it a career following his 24 years serving the citizens of Peabody. Born and raised in Peabody, the Democrat began his political career as a two-term School Committee member, followed by eight terms on the City Council, calling it “24 years of stellar service.” “I thought it was time to get out, that I couldn’t give it 100% anymore,” said Garabedian, adding, “Working every day with the public, you have


Michael Garabedian

to give it 100%.” Garabedian said he missed out on a lot of family time over the years and thoughts of retiring from the council have been in the back of his mind; he felt that now was the time to give someone else a chance. “You have a really good couple of guys running,” he said, pointing to Tom Rossignol and Ryan Melville, who have tossed their

Public pianos are back, for a limited time only City, organizations trying to bring more life downtown By Melanie Higgins he colorful public pianos are back. Last weekend the city began re-rolling them out on the streets in front of select areas downtown, including Breaking Grounds (67 Main St.) and the Peabody Institute Library’s Main Branch (82 Main St.) The goal is to have fun and spread a little joy around the downtown area. For the past two years, the Peabody Cultural Collaborative (PCC) has brought the pianos out to the streets for public use to help bring a little music around town. (PCC is a nonprofit that seeks to promote arts and culture in Peabody.) Periodically, those pianos get a little facelift by various local artists. The event coincided with the rolling out of the new “painted utility boxes,� which also seek to enliven the city. The painted utility boxes were an initiative begun earli-





A painted piano outside (Photo An artist finishes up work on courtesy Peabody Cultural Col- the painted public utility boxes laborative) project issued by the city.

er this year when the city issued a bulletin inviting artists to apply to paint the boxes and thereby liven up the city. Pedro Soto, the city’s senior planner and architect of the proj-

ect, said that anyone can use the pianos – from amateurs to professionals.“Arts and public art in particular are a very important part of community development,�Pedro said.“It really empowers the community and helps revitalize downtown. By supporting [the arts, it] adds value to the quality of life.� Martha Holden, president of PCC, praised Soto for his work and said that he has brought“remarkable life downtown.� Soto confirmed that he has also been working on some other changes downtown, such as the new signs that help newcomers and residents alike navigate the downtown a little better. The city is currently undergoing a remaking of Peabody Square and undertaking a revitalization of downtown project, of which Soto is a large part. “It brings such joy to people.� Holden said, on the importance of the pianos. And some of the people, “play beautifully.� “It’s a nice way for people to step out of their day-to-day humdrum,� she said.

GOING | FROM PAGE 1 hats in the ring for one of the five at-large council seats. Looking back on his career past and present, Garabedian noted about the City Council such positives as the collective focus on downtown Peabody – “focused on that and got it completed” – and the recent Crystal Lake off Lowell Street

in West Peabody, which took “over a decade to become a nice site for the city.” Garabedian also pointed at public safety – Peabody was voted one of the safest cities in the state two years ago – and at the council, which stepped-up for the people, passing a moratorium on billboard signs for the next few years. “Being a city councillor as

the city celebrates its 100-year anniversary is right up there for me,” beamed Garabedian. “Walking down Main Street in the parade, that was a nice feeling.” Looking back on some of the low points, the councillor recalled his time on the School Committee when the board voted to take property by eminent domain to build the

Brown School. “The board voted to take property from the Trovis brothers by eminent domain, which drew national attention,’ recalled Garabedian. “I knew the kids needed a school but didn’t think that was the place and that we went about it the wrong way.” Garabedian said he voted against it, siding with the brothers who have since passed away many years ago. The elderly Trovis brothers, both veterans, owned a large piece of property on Lynn Street that was used by the city to build the elementary school, which has since become private residences. Looking at present-day Peabody, Garabedian likes the positive direction the city has taken under Mayor Ted Bettencourt. “He never stops looking to do something – always to the benefit of the people. He’s done a great job and he’s moving the city in the right direction,” he said. “Even as we’ve had to raise taxes over the years, Peabody is still one of the lowest in the North Shore area.” The councillor envisions two more schools in the city’s future and cites the Essex Agricultural and Technical High School in Danvers as something great for the city to be involved in given that for over 20 years it couldn’t offer a vocational education to its students. “Now we’re in a partnership with probably the

best in the state.” Garabedian pointed out that the Essex-Aggie decision was a joint vote by both the City Council and the School Committee. Employed as a general manager of IRA Subaru in Danvers, Garabedian has been one of the top car sales managers in the local auto industry for over 35 years, a position which demands many days, nights and weekends, a factor which has also played into his decision. He looks forward to more family time with his wife, Marian, and their two daughters, Amy and Jillian, after buying a little place in Maine. He also pointed to a loss of a close friend who passed away recently. “That puts things into perspective,” he said. “I’m old enough to leave the council,” said Garabedian, laughing when asked for his age, a young 61. “I’m going to miss the campaigning most of all – there’s probably not a day I regretted running for office,” said Garabedian with a smile. “But it’s time.” The councillor-at-large will see his last term come to an end in January but still won’t rule out another run for something down the road. Garabedian says he knows there’ll be a time when he’s going to miss the City Council meetings and the campaigning, but he knows he’s walking away with his head held high, holding a big smile.

Love is Magic is Running

Cindy Bissell with her son, Eric

By Melanie Higgins ast Sunday the city got together and ran a special race for children and adults with life-threatening illnesses. Called â&#x20AC;&#x153;Love is Magicâ&#x20AC;?, the 5k race is in its 3rd annual year. The race took place at and around Bishop Fenwick High School.

Runners take off in the Love is Magic 5k race.

Team Hoyt, a famous organization that helps people with disabilitiesâ&#x20AC;&#x2DC;runâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;the races, was present as well. Team Hoyt is based off of a father-son duo that gained notoriety through their races, often marathons and including triathlons. Dick Hoyt and his son Rick would team up, with Rick in a specialized racing chair, and race. Today, they partner up willing participants and people with disabilities or debilitating illnesses and provide them with a custom â&#x20AC;&#x153;Team Hoytâ&#x20AC;? wheelchair to race with.

The success of the program is evident by the smiles on the faces of the people who race with their partners, of which consisted a large part of the racers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He loves it,â&#x20AC;? said Cindy Bissell, mom of Eric, who Cindy raced with in his custom Team Hoyt chair. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something we can do together.â&#x20AC;?

Both attended Revere Public THIS YEAR’S RECIPIENTS: Seven students from area communities schools with members of the received awards last Saturday at the Vitale Memorial Fund Scholarship Awards Ceremony in Saugus. They include the following: Vitale family. Sabrina Panetta, of Saugus, Pioneer School of Science in Saugus; Isabella Lopresti, of Saugus, Saugus High School; Chloe Gizzi, of Peabody, Peabody Veeterans Memorial High School; Samantha Verge, of Hamilton, Hamilton-Wenham Regional High School; Isabelle Charbonnier, of Charlestown, Arlington Catholic High School; and Kerri McKinnon, of Saugus, Kents Hill School, Kents Hill, Maine. Missing from the photo is Gianni Hill, of Revere, who attended Revere High School. His parents accepted the award on his behalf.

PVMHS graduate Chloe Gizzi, left, with her mother, Linda, last Saturday at Officer Harold L. Vitale Memorial Park in Saugus. Chloe is one of seven students from area communities who received a Vitale Memorial Fund Scholarship this year. The scholarships are presented in memory of the late Saugus police officer who was killed in the line of duty in June of 1985.

• Kerri McKinnon, of Saugus, attended Kents Hill School in Kents Hill, Maine. She was a member of the National Honor Society and was very active in her school’s sports – as captain of the Soccer, Hockey and Tennis teams. She participated in the Maine Youth Leadership program and was the Class Treasurer. McKinnon wants to major in Special Education and obtain her masters in Speech Pathology and plans to attend Gordon College. Her father – Saugus Patrol Union President Officer Frank McKinnon – shares the same birthday (June 14) as Officer Vitale. • Gianni Hill, of Revere, attended Revere High School.

KEEPING HIS MEMORY ALIVE: Eileen Vitale, the widow of the late Saugus Police Officer Harold L. Vitale, said 23 years of awarding scholarships in honor of her husband gives her joy and helps her cope with the anniversary of his being killed in the line duty more than three decades ago.

• Samantha Verge, of Hamilton, attended Hamilton-Wenham Regional High School. She is a National Honor Society member and maintained academic or highest academic honor roll for four years and achieved honorable mention status in History and Spanish. In addition to her scholastic success, she excelled on the athletic fields, competing on the Field Hockey team, and was recognized for Excellence for Sportsmanship, Ethics, and Integrity by the MIAA.

The VITALE MEMORIAL FUND AT WORK: Les Vitale, of Peabody, a brother of the late Saugus officer and president of the Officer Harold L. Vitale Memorial Fund, said the fund has generated $120,000 in scholarships and about $600,000 that helped fund organizations that assist the families of officers killed or wounded in the line of duty. The fund was initially set up to help maintain Vitale Memorial Park in Saugus.

• Isabelle Charbonnier, of Charlestown, attended Arlington Catholic High School, and is the daughter of Boston Police Sgt. Michael Charbonnier. A moment of silence for another fallen officer Isabelle Charbonnier and her family have a special con-

nection to the Vitale family – a relative and law enforcement officer who was killed in the line of duty. The late State Trooper Mark Charbonnier was on a routine patrol in the Kingston area on Rt. 3 on Sept. 2, 1994, when he pulled a car over at about 3 a.m. The suspect, a paroled killer, went to retrieve his papers from the glove box to comply with the trooper’s request but instead pulled out a gun and shot Charbonnier at pointblank range. The trooper returned fire, wounding the suspect. He was still able to call in for help, but later died from the bullet wounds. During last Saturday’s scholarship awards ceremony, Les Vitale asked the gathering to pause for a moment of silence for Officer Vitale, Trooper Charbonnier and the more than 300 officers who have given their lives in the line of duty. Mrs. Vitale looks upon the memorial fund set up in honor of her husband as a way to show her gratitude and the family’s appreciation for the


help and support she received soon after her husband’s tragic death. “We’re able to support victim support organizations that helped us in 1985, like the National C.O.P.S. [Concerns of Police Survivors] and the N.E. Chapter C.O.P.S,” Mrs. Vitale said. “Last year we gave out $35,000 to a young, critically injured U.S. Secret Service Officer to assist in his rehabilitation. We are making a big impact,” she said. Editor’s Note: The Officer Vitale Memorial Fund, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) organization and was created in 1992 some seven years after Officer Vitale’s death. Officer Vitale was killed in the line of duty in the early morning hours of June 18, 1985; while attempting to make an arrest, he was dragged over 1,000 feet to his death. Officer Vitale was 42 at the time and married to his wife, Eileen, and lived in Ipswich with three children: Paul, Michelle and

It’s not only the scoring but distributing the ball also. Over a third of her points are from assists. That shows she’s willing to get others involved. Lauren’s a true talent and she takes pride in her performance.” Throughout the season, Desroches expressed similar sentiments regarding Denisco, who made key saves early in the second half of Peabody’s first-round

playoff win over Lowell. Those stops kept the game close and allowed the Tanners to mount their resurgence from a fourgoal deficit. Denisco finished with a school-record 633 career saves in her four years playing varsity. Desroches pointed to senior Shashaty as the anchor of the team’s defense, while both Gizzi and Bradley were important contributors and scorers on the offensive side. Gizzi was also strong on draws. All five players played clutch roles in Peabody’s 10-8 firstround tourney home win over Lowell, where the Tanners fell behind 6-2 in the first half before outscoring the visitors 8-2 the rest of the way to pull out the victory.

ive Peabody Veterans Memorial High School girls’ lacrosse players were named to the 2017 Northeastern Conference (NEC) All-Star Team last week. Heading the list was offensive stalwart Lauren Wolff, who became the all-time leading scorer in school history this season. Wolff and fellow senior Gianna Denisco, the team’s goalkeeper, received first-team selections, while Alyssa Shashaty, Chloe Gizzi and Kirsten Bradley made the second team. Wolff finished with more than 70 goals this season and over 250 for her career. Her performance helped the Tanners to an impressive 17-5 season, which ended with a close 10-7 loss at

Peabody well-represented at Agganis Games By Greg Phipps ore than 30 student athletes from Peabody High School and Bishop Fenwick will take part in the annual Agganis Senior All-Star Games next week in Lynn. “Everything is looking good. We have more than 350 [senior] athletes [from area high schools] signed up to play and we’re looking forward to another great week,” said Agganis Games Director Paul Halloran. Peabody is sending 18 student athletes while 14 from BF will take part in the fiveday event, which begins with an opening ceremony on Sunday, June 25. The ceremony starts at 10 a.m. at Manning Field and will be followed by a softball-baseball all-star doubleheader. The softball contest begins at noon and the baseball game at 2 p.m. Halloran pointed out that the football game, which takes place at Manning Field on Thursday, June 29, at 7 p.m., is in its 56th year – by far the oldest of the nine allstar games. Baseball is in its 23rd season, softball its 21st and soccer its 22nd. Basketball has been in place for 13 years, and lacrosse was introduced six years ago. “For almost 40 years, there was only the Agganis AllStar Football Game. That changed with the introduction of baseball in 1995, and we have continued to expand to the point where we have nine all-star games in five days,” Halloran explained. “We’re proud to have created a premiere sports festival in memory of one of


the greatest athletes ever to come out of Massachusetts.” The event is named in memory of Harry Agganis, a local sports legend who was a football and baseball star at Lynn Classical High School and Boston University. He made it to the Major Leagues and had become the starting first basemen for the Boston Red Sox when he died in 1955 at the age of 26. Halloran said the games serve as a fundraiser for the Agganis Foundation, which has awarded nearly $2 million in scholarships to 945 student athletes since its inception in 1956. “The all-star games provide an opportunity for many seniors to put on a uniform and play before a crowd one last time,” said Halloran. “They also shine a light on the foundation and the work it does in providing college scholarships for deserving student athletes.” Halloran added that the Agganis Games are similar to other all-star competitions in that they feature top players in the area but the main emphasis is not on winning the game. “There is a certain level of competition that comes with [having all-star teams]. Everyone realizes, however, that there are no losers and the primary goal is for the players to have a memorable experience,” he said. Other all-star games on tap for next week are as follows: the boys’ and girls’ basketball doubleheader on Monday, June 26, beginning at 5:30 p.m. at Lynn Classical High School; the boys’ and

Peabody Legion teams open season By Greg Phipps he lights went out for a brief time at Bezemes Diamond Tuesday night, but the same was not true for the Middleton-Peabody Junior Legion team. Starter Chris Masta grinded through six innings without his best stuff and helped M-P to a 10-4 win over Beverly-Salem. The victory improved MP’s record to 3-1-1 – which includes a 14-14 tie against Haverhill – and in contention for the top spot in the 10-team District 8 league. M-P was coming off an 8-2 win over MarbleheadSwampscott Monday. “Chris battled out there. He didn’t have his good breaking ball tonight, but he did what he needed to. He really gutted it out,” said Middleton-Peabody head coach Kevin Bloom of Masta’s effort. In his six innings of work, the M-P righty allowed four runs (three of them unearned) on six hits. He fanned just one batter, who reached base when the third strike got by the catcher, and he walked two. Nick DeSimone came in and pitched the final inning to preserve the victory. Masta received plenty of support quickly, as the hosts plated four runs in the first inning to jump ahead 4-0. Singles by Alex DiBlasi, Evan Locke, Masta and DeSimone and a sacrifice fly accounted for the scoring. M-P would add single runs in the second and fourth frames and two each in the third and sixth innings. Matthew Bloom and DeSimone smashed run-scoring doubles to aid the offensive production. M-P finished with nine hits for the game. Masta helped his own cause with two hits, a walk and an RBI. Coach Bloom said the team is made up of players from several

PEABODY POLICE DEPARTMENT POLICE LOGS Wednesday, June 7 A hard lesson to learn Police investigated due to a reported motor vehicle owner attaching different license plates after police confiscated the originals on the minivan. According to the report, officers went to the owner’s Coolidge Avenue residence and found the vehicle with another set of license plates that did not belong to it. An officer was then approached by a family member, who said that the owner “doesn’t learn” after having her license plates confiscated the day before and replacing them with a

fraudulent set. The officers sent the information along to, hopefully, teach the woman a lesson the next day.
