Lynnfield to cap off long weekend with Memorial Day ceremony and festivities By Melanie Higgins


ith a promising weather forecast for the long holiday weekend, it can be easy to forget the real reason why we celebrate Memorial Day. Since 1776, countless veterans have made the “ultimate sacrifice” and offered their service so that others may live prosperously. This weekend, Lynnfield celebrates its annual Me morial Day parade and ceremony. On Monday, May 29 th, Lynnfield will march throughout the streets in honor of those who have served or fallen. Revelers will gather at the parking lot of Our Lady of Assumption Church at 8:15am. The parade route will go through the South Burying Ground on Street, on through the Willow Cem-

eter y on Summer Street, proceed to the South Lynnfield Fire Station for a ‘brief recess’, and onwards. Marchers will reconvene at the Middle School at 10am and then proceed to the West Burying Ground, Old Burying Ground, and Forest Hill Cemetery, the sites of many of Lynnfield’s fallen heroes. A brief ceremony will take place at each grave site. Final ceremonies will begin at 11:00am on the town common, where there will be a party including music and a cookout. Festivities should not last beyond 1pm. In case of heavy rain, the after party will be held at the Middle School auditorium. “All veterans and residents are encouraged to participate in some or all of the ceremonies,” said Bruce Siegel,

Co. B, 18th Infantry Regiment, 1st Division. He was killed on November 21, 1944, in the buildup to the grueling Battle of the Bulge, also known as the Ardennes Offensive. The attack was the last ditch Nazi effort in blizzard conditions to push the Allies back from German home territory. David graduated in 1942 as the “highest ranking student in his class” from the Huntington School for Boys (now Chapel Hill – Chauncy Hall) in Boston. He excelled academically across the curriculum, being feted for excellence in French, English, History and Geometry. Awarded the Harvard Book Award in his junior year, he was elected into the highly selective Cum Laude Society in his senior year. David was also active in tennis and track, along with serving as editor-in-chief of the school newspaper. After graduation David attended Dartmouth College before entering the Army in October 1943. He first reported to Fort Benning, Georgia, in the Army Specialized Training Program. David was then sent to Camp Livingston, Louisiana, before being sent overseas. Charles N. Todd Charles, like his brother David after him, graduated from the Huntington School, class of 1938. An honor student, he was “manager of the track team in his junior year, and in his senior year he was vicepresident of his class, captain of the tennis team, and editor-in-chief of the Huntington Record.” After two years at Dartmouth, he was employed at the Krippendorf Kalculator Company in Lynn before his enlistment. Charles received basic training at Fort Bragg, North Carolina, and was commissioned as second lieutenant at Fort Sill, Oklahoma, in August 1942 when he was 21. He was promoted to first lieutenant in April 1943 while he was at Camp Hood, Texas. Charles went overseas in November 1944 and was killed in action in Germany on March 8, 1945. The Allies declared victory ex-

Town to receive additional state funds for IT services By Melanie Higgins


ast week the governor of Massachusetts announced that the state had awarded Lynnfield $50,000 to go towards improving its Information Technology (IT) services. The funds will jointly affect Lynnfield and Wakefield. According to the state, they will help “modernize and improve their permitting system on a regional basis, allowing the public to apply for and track the status of permits online.” The announcement comes as the Board of Selectmen announced on Monday that it is on the cusp of establishing new financial transparency software, another gain in its goal towards modernizing its IT services. The funds are part of $2 million in Community Compact grants allocated to 47 cities and towns across the Commonwealth that go towards improvements to IT infrastructure, software and equipment. A Community Compact is a state agreement that clears the way for increased state funds. In signing the compact, a community agrees to a set of “best prac-

tices” among other stipulations. In Lynnfield, one of them included making upgrades to the town’s financial records site. As a result, the state awarded the town $20,000. The town is preparing to roll out the new site, called MUNIS. Now the town can celebrate another $50,000 towards furthering its IT infrastructure. “The administration is proud of our commitment to serve as a reliable partner to our cities

and towns,” said Kristen Lepore, state secretary of Administration and Finance. “Throughout our budget development process, we have prioritized supporting our communities,” Lepore also said that in the future, the state has allocated an additional $8.8 million for FY 18 Community Compact– related projects, meaning that Lynnfield could see more money coming through in the coming months.

Lynnfield’s top 10 taxpayers By Melanie Higgins


t’s not even close: MarketStreet is the largest taxpayer in the town, paying almost $3.5 million in taxes, contributing about seven times as much as the next largest taxpayer. With a revenue of $206 million, MarketStreet’s total liability to the town for FY 2017-2018 was $3,462,170.88. Lynnfield Commons, the luxury apartment complex associated with MarketStreet, earned the #2 spot, paying $477,468.73. Arborpoint at Market Street, another apartment complex, earned #3, with $466,764.43 in taxes paid last year. All these combine for a total top 10 of $5,588,914. Of course, these top 10 aren’t the only taxpayers. Lynnfield residents by and large pay the most

in property taxes. In addition to many other town businesses, the town also receives various state and federal grants to pay for the more than $45 million remaining in last years’ budget.

Baker-Polito Administration, Senator McGee Highlight Support for Enhancing Annuity Benefit Eligibility for Gold Star Families Statute change will allow for $2,000 benefit payments retroactive to eligibility BOSTON – In recognition of Memorial Day, Governor Charlie Baker, Lieutenant Governor Karyn Polito, Secretary of Veterans Services Francisco Ureña, State Senator Thomas M. McGee and other members of the Legislature joined Gold Star Families at the State House to highlight bipartisan efforts enhancing the $2,000 annuity benefit available to Gold Star families. The change would allow benefit payments retroactive to initial eligibility upon the death of a service member, supporting those who may miss an application deadline, or be unaware of the benefit while supporting their family after a loss. Current statute provides payment retroactive only to the date a family member first applies. “ The Commonwealth is grateful for our devoted service members and their families, and this gesture represents a small token of appreciation to honor those who have made the ultimate sacrifice while protecting and defending our country,” said Governor Charlie Baker.  “As we approach Memorial Day, our administration is proud to join Senator McGee and the legislature to honor our veterans and Gold Star Families and ensure they are properly supported during a most difficult time.” “The Gold Star Family annuity benefit is currently provided to approximately 2,400 spouses or parents each year,” said Lt. Governor Karyn Polito.  “It is an honor to support our Gold Star community by proposing legislation to ensure that those who have lost a loved one receive the full annuity they deserve.” “As a Commonwealth, we must stand firm with our allegiance to our service members and their families,” said Senator Thomas M. McGee, who filed the language that makes this change as an amendment to the Senate budget. “We must always choose to do the right thing for our ser-

vice members, veterans, and their families whenever possible, and I am glad to work with my colleagues in the Senate, with the support of the Governor and his Administration, to take this first step to make these changes a reality as part of this year’s budget.” The $2,000 annuity is provided annually by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and its Department of Veterans’ Services in recognition of service to the parents (Gold Star Parent) or spouse (Gold Star Wife or Husband) of Massachusetts’ residents who gave their lives in the service of their country, beginning the year the veteran died. “Enhancing this benefit demonstrates our commitment as a Commonwealth to those who have served our country,” said Secretary Marylou Sudders of the Executive Office of Health and Human Services. “It is another way our Department of Veterans’ Services can serve as a resource for not only our fallen heroes, but their spouses and families in a time of need.” “This proposal and these efforts are commendable, recognizing and correcting a flaw in current statute to ensure the families of the fallen receive the proper benefits,” said Veterans Secretary Francisco Ureña. “Many Gold Star Families are often unaware of the benefits available to them as they experience the most difficult time in their life,” said Peggy Griffin, President, Greater Boston Chapter of Gold Star Wives. “This is especially true for widows who do not have service officers working with them or a designated representative to assist them through the maze of paperwork.  For those families without help, this bill will be welcome.  The Greater Boston Chapter of Gold Star Wives of America supports this proposal and actions like it, that help Gold Star Wives and their families.” The Gold Star Parent Annu-

ity Program began on July 1, 1998 and the Gold Star Spouse began on November 11, 2005. More information and application to apply for the benefit can be found here: http:// Last November, Governor Baker signed an Executive Order reaffirming and restructuring the Governor’s Advisory Council on Veterans’ Services, appointing members charged with advising the administration on how to best support the Commonwealth’s veterans through improved access to employment and job training, healthcare and well-being services, affordable and accommodating housing choices and educational opportunities. Earlier in May, Governor Baker announced the Baker-Polito Administration’s Fiscal Year 2018 Capital Budget Plan will include a $8 million investment to begin constructing a new long-term care facility at the Chelsea Soldiers’ Home for veterans, a $199 million project in conjunction with the federal government. The facility is one of two state operated soldiers’ homes that provide both longterm care and domiciliary residential services.

By Joe Mitchell


hanks to Mother Nature’s fickleness in April, the Lynnfield High School girls’ tennis team (13-1) was forced to play four matches last week, but they responded like champs with victories across the board. The Pioneers defeated Ipswich (5-0, May 15), Rockport (5-0, May 16), Newburyport (3-2, May 17) and North Andover (41, May 18). They then had the State Individual Tournament last Friday and Saturday. “I don’t recommend playing four matches in four days under regular conditions, but I give the players a lot of credit for hanging tough both mentally and physically,” coach Craig Stone said. Against Ipswich, Sarah Mezini (6-0, 6-0), Camie Foley (61, 6-1) and Katie Nevils (6-0, 6-1) won the singles matches. The first doubles team of Laura Mucci and Makayla Maffeo (6-1, 6-2) kept up the winning trend, as did the second doubles team of Celeste Joly and Claire Yang (6-1, 6-1). This match was almost postponed, but finally they had better luck with the weatherman, and the rain stopped just in time for the match. “Our singles players were again dominant from start to finish,” said Stone. “We have a solid 1, 2, 3 punch with each of them capable of playing No. 1 singles on another team. “Then in doubles, Mucci combined with Maffeo for the first time this season, and quickly established dominance as if they were playing together all year long.” He continued, “Freshmen

Joly and Yang picked up their first varsity win in their first varsity match in second doubles. You will be hearing a lot from both of them in the future … We have a lot of depth on our varsity team with 13 players capable of playing at that level and being successful. Unfortunately, only seven can play at a time, and you can’t substitute during a match. As a result, you still must give your varsity start-

ers enough playing time, as well. But fortunately, we have a team-first attitude, and starters do not mind giving up playing time to enhance the future of next year’s team.” It was now time for Rockport. Mezini (6-0, 6-0), Foley (61, 6-1) and Alexa Vittiglio (7-6, 6-1) won the singles matches. Katie Nugent and Allison Carey (6-1, 6-1), and Rachel Strout and Makayla Maffeo (6-2, 6-2)

Girls’ lacrosse team cruises to two more wins, builds momentum for the postseason By Joe Mitchell


he Lynnfield High School girls’ lacrosse team won two more games this past week to improve to 12-5, while continuing to build momentum for the postseason. The Lynnfield girls defeated HamiltonWenham, 14-6, and then nonleague Bedford by the exact same score. It was a hot day on the Lynnfield Stadium turf when the visiting Generals came to town. The Generals jumped out to a quick 2-0 lead about four minutes into the game, but after that surge it was all Lynnfield. The home team went on to outscore H-W, 12-2, to take a rather comfortable 12-4 lead into the halftime break. The home team was able to take

advantage of a yellow card called on the Generals with just under one minute to play on the first half clock in order to widen the gap. The Pioneers then added two more early on in the second half to complete their offensive explosion. Lilli Patterson continued her dominance on the ground, causing four turnovers, according to coach Ethan Blanchette, while Liv Smyrnios scored four times to lead the attack. She also chipped in with three groundballs and two caused turnovers. Gracie Sperling secured five groundballs to lead all players in that department, and Caroline Buckley won six draws, tops for Lynnfield in this game. The Pioneers then took on the Bedford Buccaneers, and

they wasted little time to race out to a decisive first half lead. Lynnfield was ahead, 10-2, at halftime, and then 11-2 just a few minutes into the second half. From that point on, the Pioneers slowed the pace down, but also committed several turnovers, which allowed Bedford to keep the margin of difference at eight throughout most of the game. Ashley Barrett and Smyrnios each scored four goals to pace the offensive attack, while Buckley was credited with four draws and seven groundballs. Patterson collected six groundballs and also forced four turnovers to lead the team in that department. Sperling collected three groundballs and the same number of forced turnovers and draw controls.

Lynnfield laxmen wind down rebuilding season by honoring their veteran seniors

Goalie Kingsley Corona keeps his eyes on a loose ball during the Pioneers game against Tyngsboro at Lynnfield High Saturday, May 20. (Advocate photos by Dave Sokol) James Whelan scoops up a loose ball.

By Joe Mitchell


he Lynnfield High School boys’ lacrosse team honored its hardworking seniors on Monday, May 15, before the game against Cape Ann League rival Manchester Essex. It was the team’s way to say thank you to them after four years of dedicated service to the program. Captain Kingsley Corona, Ryan Freitas, Jimmy Whelan and Dave Mineo took center stage to be singled out by their coaches, teammates and families in a welldeserved pre-game tribute. The Pioneers then came out and played with great determination early on, according to coach Joe Papagni. They had revenge on their minds after the Hornets knocked them out of the state tournament last season. Both teams then battled back and forth throughout the first quarter. Goalie Kingsley Corona came up with three saves, while the Manchester goalie was equal to the task with five stops to keep things close on the scoreboard. Peter Look, Jack Razzaboni and Ryan Freitas started at middies, with sophomore Antonio Deluca, Gianluca Alfe and Zach Huynh playing attack, which was consistent throughout the opening half. The locals controlled the play for at least eight minutes,

but they just couldn’t find the back of the net. Early on in the second quarter, Jack“Razz”took a pass from Captain Look, a fellow middle, and he promptly drilled a rocket of a shot past the stunned Hornets goalkeeper. It was the team’s first lead in a couple of games. But the Hornets wasted little time to tie the score after winning the ensuing face-off, and

scored on a fast break goal. Freshman Peter Razzaboni was then able to win the next faceoff, and as a result the offense began to get back on track. They possessed the ball in the offensive zone, but just couldn’t get a shot past the Manchester goalie. But once again, the Hornets were able to get behind the defense on a missed pass attempt, and scored their second goal of

the game on another fast break opportunity, where Kinsley had little chance to come up with the save. The Hornets were able to score another goal with just under two minutes remaining in the half to take a 3-1 lead. Papagni and his assistant coach, Pat Lamusta, said afterward that they were confident the team would come back in the second half. “Our seniors

were playing with pride, and our younger players all jumped on their shoulders ready to compete,” said Papagni. Sophomore Antonio DeLuca, who earned his first start as a result of his great work ethic, scored his first career goal after taking a feed from Look to trim the deficit to one, 3-2. “An-

As time was winding down, the Pioneers were forced to take defensive chances, which unfortunately led to three more Hornet goals to account for the final score, 11-4. “Those last goals are on me,” said Papagni. “We desperately wanted to give our seniors a nice Senior Night, so I chose to take some chances. The score was at least closer and our efforts were top rate.” Last Thursday, May 18, the Pioneers traveled to North Reading to take on some more Hornets on their Senior Night. “We got off the bus with the expectation of battling our league rival to the bitter end with the hope of beating them on their Senior Night, and I think we just out-hyped ourselves,” said Papagni.

Page 15 “We will learn from this game, just as we have been learning from every game we have played this year,”said Papagni.“The positives are our younger players, who are not only getting a few life lessons, but are also learning what it takes to compete on this level.” The locals then ended the week against the Tyngsboro Tigers last Saturday morning. Before the game, Papagni showed his appreciation for his team that had just helped out at the Lynnfield Geraniumfest. He said some of his players attended the junior prom the night before, but still came to the Geraniumfest to give something back to the town, and now they had an opportunity of representing the town again in a non-league game. “These are just good kids doing what they should be doing,” the coach added. Given the long day for many of them, they started the game a bit sluggish. “We saw from our scouting report that Tyngsboro had a Division 1 scholarship player that we really wanted to concentrate on,” said Papagni,“and so we put Jimmy Whelan, our best long pole player, on him to try and take him out of the game … Jimmy did a great job on him, but those kind of kids (17 games into the season) figure a way to slip away from time to time, and that’s what he did.” The Tyngsboro offense was all about good ball movement. They were able to put good pressure on the Pioneers throughout the first quarter to jump out to a 3-0 lead. The Pioneers, however, fought back, with Jack Razzaboni hitting Freitas on a quick pass, and Ryan promptly beat the Tigers’ goalie cleanly. But Tyngsboro made it 4-1, before Freitas returned the favor to Razzaboni. Jack was then able to beat the Tigers’ goalie through the five-hole to cut the lead in half, 4-2. But the Pioneers couldn’t get any closer. The Tigers, however, scored two more second quarter goals to take a 6-2 lead at halftime. The Tigers’second half scoring continued, but Razzaboni and Freitas also scored, while Corona came up with 12 saves. Anthony Murphy and Look each had assists in the game that ended with Tyngsboro winning rather handily, 13-4. Whelan, Freitas, Look and Corona played tough throughout, despite the outcome. “Once again, our young guys keep getting quality playing time against teams that are all tournament-bound,” said Papagni. “I am sure this will pay off down the road.” The Lynnfield boys wrapped up the regular season earlier this week against Pope John at home (after press deadline).

Kids Day is another annual event that, as Price explained, helps boost town spirit and provide a fun day for kids. Founded in 1985, Townscape Lynnfield is a nonprofit that hosts a variety of fundraisers in

the next six games in a row … Both doubles teams came out of the gate slowly, dropping their first sets, but then had dominating second sets. They were then unable to maintain the momentum going into the third set. He added, “Conditions were not comfortable. Every player was struggling with the heat. Our singles players were able to maintain focus and played up to their capabilities, but the doubles teams seemed to be tentative later in their matches, which made for a less than desirable outcome.” The Lynnfield girls then went up against non-league North Andover. Mezini (6-0, 6-1), Foley (6-2, 6-1) and Vittiglio (6-3, 6-2) came out on top again in the singles matches. Nugent and Nevils won a thrilling first doubles match in three sets. But Mucci and Carey (2-6, 6-3, 1-6) ended up on the short end of their three-set marathon ses-

sion in second doubles. The State Individual Tournament continued last Friday after rain suspended early round action the previous weekend. On Saturday, May 13, Foley and the doubles team of Mucci and Vittiglio each won their first match, but lost their second encounter to eliminate them from the tourney. Nevils was leading in her first match, but had to default in the second round, because of a previous commitment. Mezini and the doubles team of Carey and Nugent each had a bye in the first round, and then won their second round matches to advance. Last Saturday, May 20, Mezini defeated Abby Sartori of Amesbury (6-0, 6-3) and then Kayla Schwartz of Newton South (63, 6-1) to advance to the quarterfinals. Mehak Kang and Skye Bell of Concord-Carlisle eliminated Carey and Nugent (6-1, 6-1), but the match was much closer.

Then on Sunday, Mezini faced Mia Wallace of Arlington, the top-seed, and lost (6-2, 6-1). This was another close match with many deuce games, long rallies and outright winners from both players, according to Stone. “Mezini becomes the first Pioneer in history to advance to the North Sectional quarterfinals for four consecutive years,” added her proud coach. “I have been impressed with Sarah’s play from the moment she stepped on the court as a freshman, and have continued to be amazed by her level of play. She has always competed above and beyond expectations, while at the same time demonstrating a level of sportsmanship that is also admired. Stone said, “This tournament combines players from all divisions, and reaching [last] weekend is an accomplishment in itself.”

GIRLS’ TENNIS | from page 12 He added, “Mezini and Foley continue to roll. Interestingly, they both played male opponents, because Rockport does not have a boys’ team … Vittiglio, a much-improved sophomore, got her first career singles win after trailing at one point, 5-2, but she rallied to win the first set in a tiebreaker (7-5) and continued that momentum into the second set to secure the victory … Nugent and Carey were back in action after a day off, and they showed no rust. They yielded only two games in two sets … Strout and Maffeo teamed up again for a convincing win in second doubles. Strout is a senior, playing in her second varsity season, while Maffeo is a junior and has been a spot starter this season.” It was a much closer match versus Newburyport. Mezini (61, 6-1), Foley (6-4, 6-3) and Nev-

ils (7-6, 6-0) took care of business to win this match for the team. Nugent and Carey (1-6, 6-3, 4-6) and Mucci and Vittiglio (4-6, 6-2, 3-6); however, lost a couple of hard-fought doubles matches. “It was even warmer during this match with temperatures reaching 92,” said Stone. “Mezini continued to play at a higher level than her opponent, pounding ground strokes from both sides of the court, and hitting serves that would make most players quiver … Foley had the most competitive singles match, but was able to make her opponent move wide and then hit winners to the other side or hit behind her opponent. … Nevils struggled in the first set against her backboard opponent, but after winning the first set in a tiebreaker (7-4), she settled down to win

Choosing Good Fats

By Anna Tourkakis, Nutritionist


at is a necessary nutrient for good health. The phrase “good fat and bad fat” is a familiar one used to indicate the type of fat to choose. As choosing bad fat can have detrimental effects, its important to know which are the good fats. Fats are a combination of saturated and unsaturated fatty acids. The predominant fatty acid type a fat contains designates the label – saturated or unsaturated fat. Studies show the unsaturated fats - good fats- is beneficial. The saturated fats - bad fats - contribute to cholesterol production and not desirable. Saturated fats are found in all animal meats and animal products. Best identified as being solid at room temperature. Tropical oils such as coconut oil and palm kernel oils are also saturated fats. The good fats are those found in plant sources (olive oil, canola, sunflower, nuts, avocado, and others) and fish oils, which are unsaturated fats. They are liquid at room temperature. These unsaturated fats do not contribute to cholesterol production. The hardness of the fat is an indicator of the proportion of good fats to bad fats. For example the pan drippings of baked chicken are softer than those of roast beef due to chicken’s lower content of saturated fat. Calorically, both types contain about 100 calories per tablespoon.

Swaps Here are some swaps to add more healthy fats to your eating pattern. Instead of saturated fats such as butter, sour cream, cream cheese try these good fats: • avocado • nuts • peanut butter • yogurt cheese • olive oil • olives For dips, make yogurt the base instead of sour cream or cream cheese. Drizzle salads with an olive oil vinaigrette. At cookouts replace the traditional potato salad with a whole-wheat pasta salad. Use avocado as a spread on sandwiches. Lets not forget the fat in baked goods. I often use oil in place of butter with great success. For desserts, instead of rich chocolate or cheese cakes or pies try these: • Angel food cake • sponge cake • fruit • poached or baked fruit - pears and apples are great • frozen fruit - bananas, grapes are great • smoothies Saturated fat can also be found in breads such as croissants, pop-overs, biscuits and scones, try these alternatives: • regular sliced whole wheat bread • English muffin • Plain roll Swapping bad fats for good fat gives recipes renewed taste and makes for healthier eating. Ingredients such as nuts and seeds (sesame seeds, flaxseeds) also add texture.


Choose good fats for your everyday meals. Recipe Chicken salad with greens and citrus vinaigrette Citrus Vinaigrette, no salt • 1 orange, peeled and chopped • ¼ cup chopped red onion • ¼ cup chopped fresh parsley • ½ cup orange juice • ¼ cup grapefruit juice • ¼ cup lemon juice • ¼ cup olive oil • 2 tablespoons honey • Fresh ground black pepper Mix all the ingredients in a jar or bowl. Store in refrigerator. Makes 1 ½ cups For greens: Mixed greens 2-3 sprigs of dill 1 tablespoon sliced or slivered almonds For chicken: 1 cup of cooked chicken breast cut in chunks. Assemble salad: Place greens and dill on serving platter. Top with chicken and almonds. Dress with citrus vinaigrette. Serve. Bring Eating From Within to your workplace!

The Advocate HOROSCOPE

Beacon Hill Roll Call By Bob Katzen THE HOUSE AND SENATE: Beacon Hill Roll Call records local representatives’votes on roll calls from late April sessions. There were no roll calls in the House or Senate last week. ADOPTION TAX CREDIT (H 3600) House 47-110, rejected an amendment that would give adoptive parents up to a $1,000 tax credit to cover adoption expenses. Amendment supporters said this will encourage more adoption and help these selfless parents meet some of the expenses which can amount to thousands of dollars. Amendment opponents said the sponsors did not do a cost analysis to determine what the fiscal impact on the state budget and other programs would be. (A “Yes” vote is for the $1,000 tax credit. A “No” vote is against it.) Rep. Stephan Hay No Rep. Bradley Jones Yes Rep. Theodore Speliotis No Rep. Thomas Walsh No CREATE COLLEGE AFFORDABILITY COMMISSION (H 3600) House 38-120, rejected an amendment that would create a 16-member College Affordability Commission to examine the contributing factors to rising costs at colleges and universities. The committee would hold public hearings and provide the Legislature with its findings and recommendations by March 1, 2018. Amendment supporters said rising costs are pricing students out of college or leaving them with huge student loan debts.

Amendment opponents said the Committee on Higher Education has a Subcommittee on Student Loans and Debt that is already working on this issue. (A “Yes” vote is for creating the commission. A “No” vote is against it.) Rep. Stephan Hay No Rep. Bradley Jones Yes Rep. Theodore Speliotis No Rep.

Special education advisors help the families of special education needs children navigate through the complicated world of special education and advise them on understanding their rights and how to receive appropriate services for their child. The regulations would be drafted by the state’s Special Education Advisory Council which is comprised of individuals involved in or concerned with the education of children with disabilities. Supporters said special education advisors currently are completely unregulated and do not need a license or any minimum amount of training. Opponents said they don’t necessarily oppose the licensing and regulation of these advisors but argued the idea has not been debated at length and/or subject to a public hearing. They questioned whether the Special Education Advisory Council should
