City Council to take closer look at medical marijuana facilities By Christopher Roberson

C

ity Council President Joel Saslaw recently announced that he has organized an Ad Hoc Medical Marijuana Subcommittee to develop a “gradient or report card” to evaluate applicants looking to open medical marijuana facilities. “It is upon us, I felt it was important,” he said during the council’s Aug. 17 meeting. “It’s important that we have some collaboration on this work.” Saslaw also said that Mayor Edward Bettencourt has entrusted the council with signing off on letters of non-opposition, a requirement for every applicant. “This is the process that is put upon us and we have to act accordingly,” he said. However, Saslaw said a letter of non-opposition is different from a special permit, which is the next step in the approval process. “A letter of non-opposition does not take the place of a special permit,” said Saslaw. “A special permit is completely separate.” He said host agreements would be drafted by Bettencourt. Councillor-at-Large Anne Manning-Martin said

she did not agree with the council having no involvement in the creation of those documents. “We will have no say of what the host agreement would say; that doesn’t work for me,” she said, adding that there could also be legal ramifications. “No matter what we do, I think there are going to be lawsuits coming.” In addition, Manning-Martin said Police Chief Thomas Griffin ordered protective equipment for his officers should they come into contact with opioids. She said this was in response to the recent incident in Chelsea in which three officers were hospitalized after being exposed to fentanyl. Manning-Martin also said that carfentanil, a variation of fentanyl, has found its way into the Bay State. According to the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, carfentanil, also known as the elephant drug, is used to sedate large animals such as elephants. The drug packs a punch that is 100 times greater than fentanyl and 10,000 times greater than morphine. In addition, two milligrams of carfentanil is all that is needed to render a 2,000-pound ele-

phant unconscious. Therefore, a dose of one microgram, approximately the size of a snowflake, is lethal to humans. “It is extremely, extremely deadly,” said Manning-Martin. The subcommittee will hold its first meeting on Sept. 14. In other news, Bettencourt said that Julie Daigle was chosen as the city’s new treasurer, adding that she has served Peabody in a number of capacities during the past 17 years, including her most recent position as the business liaison. “We felt that Julie was the best fit for this position,” said Bettencourt. Councillor-at-Large Thomas Gould wished Daigle well in her new role. “You give 100 percent to everything you do, and I’m sure you’ll do a great job taking care of our money,” he said. In response, Daigle assured the councillors that she would not disappoint them. “I really love the City of Peabody and I really love working for the City of Peabody,” she said. The council voted unanimously to approve the application for a Class 1 Motor Ve-

Plum Tomatoes voted number one at Pizza Fest

or two hours, dozens of residents swarmed the Plum Tomatoes Brick Oven Pizza booth during the city’s first Pizza Fest event on Aug. 20. “It was pretty exciting, it was great, it was a good feeling,” said owner Pasquale DeLeo. During the event, customers had the opportunity to vote for which pizzeria they liked the most. After votes were counted, Mary Bellavance of Mayor Edward Bettencourt’s Office said Plum Tomatoes had taken first place by a wide margin. “Everybody who works in my shop takes a lot of pride in what they do,” said DeLeo. The second and third place finishes were much closer with second place going to Kelley Square Pub and third place going to Mr. G’s. Held on Railroad Avenue, the event featured nine pizzerias offering everything from plain cheese pizza to Hawaiian and meat lover’s pizzas. Joshua Canfield of Reach for the Pie said he handed out 243 slices in 33 minutes. Bettencourt said he was pleased with how everything went. “Pizza Fest was a spectacular success; we are so grateful to the many Peabody restau-

rants who volunteered their time and energy to take part in Pizza Fest and make it the great event that it was,” he said, adding that the event also raised $4,000 for Haven from Hunger and “We are already planning next year’s Pizza Fest, which will be bigger and better that this one.” Curtis Bellavance, director of Community Development and Planning, said he and his colleagues were expecting “500700” residents at the event. This was one time when he did not mind being wrong. “It got closer to 1,200 people or more; it was a bigger crowd than we expected,” said Bellavance. “Everyone was pleasantly surprised with the turnout.” He said the idea for Pizza Fest was born out of “a combination of people brainstorming.” The site on Railroad Avenue was chosen as it allowed residents to leave Pizza Fest and attend the summer concert that evening at the adjacent Leather City Commons. Although it is too soon to evaluate what worked well and what could have gone better, Bellavance said he and his team will hold an action meeting with the Pizza Fest vendors for feedback for next year.

For this week’s “Advocate Asks,” Laura MacNeil, executive director of North Shore Community Action Programs (NSCAP), spoke about the organization’s recent decision to pilot a homeless assistance program called Housing First. The program is designed to “quickly and successfully connect individuals and families experiencing homelessness to permanent housing without preconditions and barriers to entry, such as sobriety, treatment or service participation requirements.” Q: What is Housing First? A: Housing First is an approach to getting chronically homeless people housed. They are literally placed directly from living in the streets or shelter into housing. There are no barriers; case managers work with the tenants to get them housing subsidies, benefits, SNAP and health care. Q: How is this different from other housing programs? A: The traditional housing approach is to provide services, such as education or job training, enrollment in school and financial literacy classes while the individual or family is in a shelter. Once the individual or family is stabilized, they are placed into housing. Most programs provide continued follow-up services, but not necessarily. There are pro/ con arguments for both types of programs. There is a need for both. No doubt, Housing First is not an easy model to follow. People don’t just get housed and all of a sudden all of their problems go away. Q: When was the program implemented?

and resources to place people into housing. About three years ago, we seriously began to investigate the possibility of doing Housing First. Q: When do you expect to begin seeing results? A: We are already seeing results with the people we have placed. They are housed. They are receiving services and most importantly health care.

A: Housing First started in the late 1980s. For the last 11 to 12 years, NSCAP had a very small program that followed a Housing First model, but it was not truly Housing First because it had other requirements related to the funding. It targeted people who were HIV-positive or who had AIDS, and they were not required to be homeless, although almost all of them were. Last October we started a true Housing First program. It is very small with limited funds. Q: How was the need for Housing First identified? A: There have been Housing First programs on the North Shore for many years. The limiting factor for NSCAP was the availability of funding for staff

Q: I read that you launched Housing First as a pilot program. What criteria will need to be met to make it permanent? A: As long as funding continues and there is a need, we will do our best to continue the program. The last Wednesday in January is designated as a Point in Time count across the country. The Point in Time count is an unduplicated count of homeless people in a community on a particular day, usually the last Wednesday in January. People who are homeless and in shelters, transitional housing and living on the streets are counted. Those on the streets are the most difficult to count. The count can vary for a variety of reasons, not the least is the weather. In 2015 we were walloped with the first of many blizzards. There was no way our volunteers could go out and count. Many homeless people who live on the street are resourceful and find a way indoors when the weather is severe. For example, shelters are able to take in more people than usual because of the severe weather. Churches and other public buildings may open

Melville seeks challenge of being councillor-at-large By Christopher Roberson

W

hen the time came to declare his candidacy for this year’s City Council election, Ryan Melville decided that running for a seat as a ward councillor was not quite enough, which led to his second decision to sprint for councillor-at-large. “Based on my experiences, I feel that representing the entire city is a challenge I want, and I feel that I can have a positive impact,” he said. “I also support the efforts of the current Ward 2 Councillor, Peter McGinn, and would like the opportunity to work beside him.” Melville also said serving on the council is a great way for him to give something back to Peabody. “I feel that I owe a debt to our city for all it has done for me,” he said. “During my time at Peabody High School, I participated in numerous athletic programs, traveled to Europe and earned a scholarship to UMass Amherst. I want those opportunities to continue to exist, and I want to ensure that the quality of life available to our citizens, especially senior citizens, continues to thrive.” A first-time candidate, Melville is currently the supervisor of licensing for the State Alcoholic Beverages Control Commission (ABCC). “My position gives me the opportunity to interact with municipalities throughout the Commonwealth on a daily basis,” he said. “I am familiar with complex state regulations and help to ensure compliance with existing laws by working with communities and their elected officials.” Prior to ABCC, Melville was the director of the Veteran Bonus Program for the State Treasurer’s Office. “I learned how

ASKS | FROM PAGE 2 for emergency shelter. Some are able to stay with friends on an emergency basis because of the storm. Others have places they hide in, such as abandoned buildings. Because of the severe weather, we believe we had an undercount in 2015 since we were only able to count those people who made it to shelters. Q: What is the approximate homeless population in Peabody? A: The Point in Time count for 2017 showed that there were eight people sleeping on the streets. However, we know that there are approximately 16 people who are on the streets in Peabody.

to develop and implement a budget and stay within that budget,” he said, adding that the council could use a new financial perspective – “This is a priority for our city in order to continue to achieve fiscal prosperity.” Melville is also a veteran, having served in Afghanistan. “I understand veteran issues and will use the leadership skills I learned in the Army to help move Peabody forward,” he said. “I believe that these experiences and others have prepared me to be an effective city councillor.” While his campaign has been going well, Melville said he has learned that “organization is everything.” “An issue that might seem trivial on paper or over the phone can really impact a person’s quality of life,” he said. “Until you see how a crack in a sidewalk impacts a person with a walker or how difficult it is for a person who is legally blind to navigate a non-audible crosswalk, then you can’t fully appreciate it.” Should he be among the chosen, Melville said residential tax hikes, current infrastructure and the opioid epiQ: How has this number fluctuated in recent years? A: In 2017 there were eight people on the street. In 2016 there were 11 people on the street. Q: Is the current homeless population considered high for a city like Peabody?

demic are a few of the issues he will tackle. Melville said senior citizens are the hardest hit by residential tax increases. “This can and will only be solved by responsible spending and an increase in the commercial tax base,” he said. But Melville said he is pleased with Mayor Edward Bettencourt’s efforts to revive downtown Peabody as well as promote business opportunities at Centennial Park and the North Shore Mall. Regarding infrastructure, Melville said Peabody “grew exponentially” during the 1960s and 1970s. He said the roads and buildings that were constructed at that time are in need of repair and in some cases, replacement. “As a city we have to prioritize maintenance over demolition and new construction,” said Melville. “Thinking long term, this is the best way for the city to maintain the infrastructure at an affordable cost.” Lastly, Melville said he has watched too many good people be taken down by the opioid epidemic. “I will support initiatives and programs that continue education for our youth and provide alternatives to substance abuse,” he said. “This is a national crisis that we have seen impact families in our community. Given the opportunity, I will work hard each day to make sure Peabody remains a great community to live and raise a family in for generations to come.” Melville’s next campaign event will be held on Sept. 6 at 6:30 p.m. at the Portuguese American War Veterans Post at 103 Tremont St. Additional information is available by sending email to info@electmelville.com. A: Salem has about the same, maybe a few more homeless on the street. This is a transient population, and some people move from Peabody to Lynn to Salem to Beverly to Gloucester. In my opinion, even one person who is living on the streets anywhere is one person too many.

Peabody LL team wins Gallant Tourney crown By Greg Phipps

A

fter giving up an early three-run lead, the Peabody Little League team responded with six unanswered tallies to down Lynn, 9-3, and capture the 34th annual Ray Gallant Invitational Baseball Tournament championship last Wednesday, Aug. 16, at Harry Ball Field in Beverly. Most Valuable Player Justin Powers played a huge role throughout the tournament for Peabody, which went 3-1 in its four games. Lynn forced a final winner-take-all showdown by defeating Peabody, 3-2, the night before. Getting the job done both offensively and defensively, Powers launched a two-run home run in the first inning and fanned 16 hitters in Wednesday’s title victory. But he struggled early on the mound in the final, as Lynn scored in the bottom of

Powers, who drove in four runs in the tournament and finished 2-0 as a pitcher with 32 strikeouts and a 1.61 ERA, got the ball rolling in the first inning. After Brunet singled, he drilled a pitch over the center field fence for a quick 2-0 edge. It became 3-0 when Tyler Fawcett singled and got to second base on a misplayed ball in the outfield. He came around to score on Daniel Ziz-

za’s double. “I couldn’t be more proud of the kids, we couldn’t have asked for a better group,” said Lynch after hoisting the trophy during post-game ceremonies. “We forget these kids are just 12 and 13 years old. We put a lot of pressure on them. It’s all about the players – coaches don’t win the games.” The team consisted of players from both the Peabody and West Peabody Little League squads. Other members of the team were Giovanni Guglielmo, Harry Lynch, Christian Fed-

erico, Danny Barrett and Mike Geissler. Assistant coaches were John Federico, Jeff Roach and Justin Powers. All players and coaches on both teams received a trophy and a pin. “Tip your cap to Lynn. We knew they wouldn’t quit,” said Lynch in reference to Lynn’s comeback from an early 3-0 hole. “I thought a big key for us is that we defended the bunt well tonight. We knew they would try to bunt on us. I’m happy we were able to come out with the win.”

The license will be used to operate a new location at 7 Centennial Dr. Unlike his prior requests to the council, Waugh said, “this one is a lot more involved,” as it involves moving vehicles and personnel. Therefore, he felt it was pertinent to go through the proper channels. “I don’t want to get myself in a position where a salesman is selling cars over there and the transaction is invalid,” said Waugh. The councillors were happy to oblige. “He’s never looking to do something so that he gets something,” Council-

lor-at-Large David Gravel said of Waugh. “He’s looking to do something so that the city gets something. It would be a great thing for the city to give back to him one time.” Ward 3 Councillor James Moutsoulas echoed Gravel’s sentiments. “You’ve been real good to the city,” he told Waugh. “You’ve been a credit to the City of Peabody.” Bettencourt announced that the audio/visual improvements in the City Hall auditorium will be starting the week of Aug. 21. He said the cost of the project is $339,000. Within that figure, $237,000 will come from the city while the remaining $102,000 will come from

Ongoing projects like the Crystal Lake Restoration which is well underway, will soon provide a beautifully landscaped area for all to enjoy.

aking a break from their political lives, city councillors from Peabody and Salem will take to the softball field once again this year for the fourth annual City Council Charity Softball Game. The game is scheduled for Sept. 1 at 6 p.m. and will be played at Ross Park at 32 Johnson St. Peabody Councillor-at-Large Thomas Gould said the game’s location alternates between Peabody and Salem. Gould is organizing the event for Peabody while City Council President Elaine Milo is the organizer for Salem. Although there is no charge to attend the game, Gould said donations will be accepted to benefit Haven from Hunger. All concession sales will also go the Haven. “We picked the Haven because it’s one of the best nonprofits around,” said Gould. “There are more and more kids going hungry; unfortunately it’s a growing population.” He said the softball game generates between $1,000 and $2,000 each year. Gould said that 20 years ago,

the two city councils would play each other every year, until the event gradually fizzled out. Then, four years ago, he and Milo decided to bring the game back. “It began as a little challenge among city councillors,” said Gould. However, it quickly became much more than a mere challenge. “The interest has grown every year; we play for pride,” said Gould, adding that Peabody has come out on top for the past three years. He said the game will last for nine innings or “until one of us waives the white flag of surrender.” Gould remained modest about his responsibility as one of the game’s organizers. “It’s not a big deal, we’re just trying to reach out and have some fun with some colleagues,” he said. Councillor-at-Large David Gravel said the game is a good way for the councillors to stay in touch with their Salem counterparts while raising money for the Haven. “The reason I enjoy the fact that the game is played is [because] it is a great fundraiser for a very good cause and it gets us to better know our neighbors and peers in Salem,” he said.

ast Sunday afternoon Railroad Avenue in Peabody was filled with hundreds of pizza lovers and pizza makers. Everyone turned out for a great cause, to raise funds for Haven from Hunger. Five dollars got you unlimited access to the best pizza in Peabody. Thanks to the generosity of all local pizza businesses and many volunteers, this event raised over $4,000 to feed

the less fortunate. The conclusion of this event posted bragging rights for local pizza makers; taking 1st Place was Plum Tomatoes, 2nd Place went to Kelly’s Square Pub and 3rd to Mr. G’s Pizza & Subs. Following the event everyone was treated to a concert on the common featuring the Herland Brothers country band.

COUNCILLOR | FROM PAGE 6 made over the past ten years isn’t disrupted and will continue to work with Aggregate Industries and residents. The Birch Street 15-acre lot subdivision project proposing a 23-home development at the end of Birch Street could be advantageous in Ward 6. However, significant attention needs to be given to issues such as a plan for flood/ drainage, which is currently problematic for Birch Street residents. A Construction Traffic Plan will be key as traffic currently impacts all roads in this area. I have some safety concerns with school buses and parents transporting children from the Burke School while this development is being built within the next few years and will make our safety and quality of life an immediate priority. I grew up in Ward 3 in the Gardner Park area of Pea-

body; the youngest of three girls and the daughter of parents both active in our city. My mother, an educator, was longtime School Committee woman Mary (“Lovey McNiff”) Tierney who gave her heart and soul to support the children’s needs in Peabody so that all children, regardless of their interests or learning capability could receive a fulfilling education in Peabody, leading them on a path to success. This not only empowered me as a young child, but forced me to learn first-hand about courage, dedication, local government, work ethic, and the advantageous effect a woman has serving in the community. As Ward 6 Councillor, I will bring new light to the council with a diverse skill set and a passion for cost effective decision-making to best benefit the interests of the community. I am not reluctant to voice my opinion, regardless

of popularity, and will courageously do so for the city I love and the residents of Peabody. I am honored and grateful for the outpour of support from Ward 6 residents and look forward to working with you as a team, listening to your ideas, concerns and suggestions in making our Community one of the best. I will assure you as councillor of Ward 6, I will stay connected with my constituents and remain visible in the community. I look forward to becoming a council member and will be a strong, independent voice for you. I am fair, approachable, honest and considerate and will work towards improving the quality of life for Ward 6 and all residents of Peabody. Therefore, I respectfully ask Ward 6 residents to vote based on experience in the upcoming Primary Election and vote for number one on the ballot, Tuesday, Sept. 12, 2017.

Beacon Hill Roll Call By Bob Katzen THE HOUSE AND SENATE. There were no roll call votes in the House or Senate last week. This week, Beacon Hill Roll Call reports local senators’ roll call attendance records for the 2017 session through August 18. The Senate has held 76 roll call votes so far in 2017. We tabulate the number of roll calls on which each senator was present and voting and then calculate that number as a percentage of the total roll call votes held. That percentage is the number referred to as the roll call attendance record. In the 39-member Senate, 31 senators (82.1 percent) have 100 percent roll call attendance records. The senators who missed the most roll calls are Sens. Jennifer Flanagan (D-Leominster) and Barbara L’Italien (D-Andover), who each missed six roll calls (92.1 percent attendance); and Eileen Donoghue (D-Lowell), who missed three roll calls (96.1 percent attendance). Beacon Hill Roll Call requested a statement from those three sena-

tors. Here are their responses. Flanagan: “Unfortunately, this year I had to miss six votes out of 76 roll calls. The first four votes were missed due to work-related travel and the last two were because of a personal family matter that kept me from attending [the] session.” L’Italien: “I was unfortunately unable to vote on six roll calls this session.” L’Italien went on to explain that there were several reasons for missing the six votes including the unexpected death of her mother on April 3; her service as a Massachusetts legislative delegate at the Government of Canada Rising State Leaders Tour; her attendance at the Women in Government Conference in Nevada; and her convening a mediation meeting between SEIU 509 and Class, Inc. to avert a large labor strike in the city of Lawrence. Donoghue: “On the evening of Thursday, June 22, I traveled to the Women in Government Conference in Las Vegas and was unable to attend the final few hours of [the] for-

mal session.” 2 0 1 7 S E N ATO R S ’ R O L L CALL ATTENDANCE RECORD THROUGH AUGUST 18 The percentage listed next to the senator’s name is the percentage of roll call votes for which the senator was present and voting. The number in parentheses represents the number of roll calls that the senator missed. Sen. Joan Lovely 100 percent (0) 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 August 7-11, the House met for a total of one hour and seven minutes while the Senate met for a total of 39 minutes.

O

f Peabody, passed away peacefully at the Woodbriar Rehab Facility in Wilmington, MA on August 15, 2017. Born August 17, 1928 in Hyde Park MA, Bill was the eighth child of Honora (Costello) and Michael J Sullivan of Ireland. Adored husband of the late Marie (Duggan) with whom he joyfully shared 57 years of marriage. Devoted father of Maureen O’Boyle of Lynnfield, MA and Janet and son-in-law, Josh Randall, of South Windsor, CT. Loving grandfather to Caitlin LaClair of Danvers, MA and the late Kevin O’Boyle of Cambridge and doting great-grandfather to Melanie, David and Brooklyn. Bill is survived by his sister, Katherine Caliguire of Randolph and predeceased by siblings Michael Sullivan, Mary Harting, Margaret Larkin, James Sullivan, Richard Sullivan, Lawrence Sullivan, Eileen Donelan, John Sullivan and Edmund Sullivan. A graduate of Hyde Park High School in 1946, Bill enlisted in the Army and served as a Corporal and MP during the Korean War occupation of Japan. He met and married Marie shortly after his return and set up their home in Dorchester and later Peabody. Always outgoing and engaging, Bill found the perfect career in sales from driving a milk truck for White Brothers, to selling meat for Dubuque Packing, to ultimately selling liquor for McKesson Wine and Spirits. Shortly before his retirement, Bill worked for NFIB. An avid outdoorsman, Bill loved the mountains and lakes of New England - hunting, fishing and especially camping and travelling with his family. His ever-present smile, humor, warmth and cheerful disposition will be sorely missed. Bill’s family wishes to extend their eternal gratitude to the nurses and aides of Woodbriar Rehab for their extraordinary care and compassion. As Bill was a deep lover of nature, in lieu of flowers, donations may be sent, in his memory, to the National Park Foundation, 1110 Vermont Avenue NW, Suite 200, Washington, DC 20005. A Mass of Christian Burial was held on Thursday, August 24 at St John the Baptist, Peabody. For guestbook, visit: www.ccbfuneral.com.

”Hello, Police ... never mind!” A Crane Brook Way resident called police to report that her vehicle had been stolen but then changed her mind when the person that had taken the vehicle had suddenly returned it. According to the report, a dispatched officer removed the plate from the vehicle since its registration had been revoked for lack of insurance.

She must own stock in PlayStation A group of 10 kids were reportedly running races on Winona Street, according to a caller who stated she found it unusual behavior. It’s good to hear reports of kids actually playing together outside – that is unusual in this day and age.

Robert Thomas, 26, of Dover, N.H., was charged with an arrest warrant.

During his presentation, Haralambou commended the council for still being able to conduct its business despite the auditorium’s current subpar sound system, which was installed in the 1980s. “I don’t know how you’ve dealt with it, this is tough,” he said. Haralambou said the improvements will include a Bose sound system and laser-based projectors. He said the projectors have a useful life of “15,000 to 20,000” hours. There won’t be waiting time for them to warm up. “The startup time is six seconds to full brightness,” said Haralambou. Gravel said he is already looking forward to hosting movie nights in the auditorium. “This could be a theatre unto its own, it attracts people to the downtown,” he said.
