LYFC rallies around DiGangi family By Christopher Roberson


ct. 21 marked three years to the day that Brian DiGangi lost his mother, Michelle, to brain cancer – he was only seven years old at the time. Ed Furbush, assistant coach of DiGangi’s JVC football team under the Lynnfield Youth Football and Cheerleading (LYFC) program, decided to host a ceremony to honor Brian and remember Michelle. Furbush said the ceremony was a complete surprise for Brian, who was joined by his father Steven, brother Jack and sister Jessica. “While it has been an undoubtedly tough road for Brian, Steve, Jack and Jessica, they

are the kindest, most emphatic people you could ever meet,” said Furbush. After practice, Brian’s teammates and coaches dedicated the season to Michelle. Also, they presented Brian with a helmet signed by everyone on the team and a specially decorated football as well as a plaque and flowers. In addition, a group of red balloons was released with Brian being the last one to let his balloon go. Furbish said red was chosen as it was Michelle’s favorite color. In response, Brian spoke about how the team has come together to support him. “It makes me feel great; they helped me out when I need-

ed it – they mean everything,” he said. Furbush said Brian has consistently stepped up for the team. “He is our rock on the field; he never complains and plays every position asked of him; it is a pleasure and privilege to help coach him,” said Furbush, adding that Brian joined LYFC the same year he lost his mother. “It’s a bit overwhelming, but Brian deserves it,” said Steven. “He loves football – he lives and breathes it.” Steven described football as Lynnfield resident Brian DiGangi is presented with a specially being a “release” for his young- decorated football during the Oct. 21 ceremony hosted by his er son. “He’s a born athlete; JVC football team marking the three years that have passed since he lost his mother, Michelle, to brain cancer.

Lynnfield has 10th highest MCAS scores in the state By Christopher Roberson


his fall was the first time that Lynnfield’s K-8 students took the new Next Generation MCAS 2.0 and the results ranked the school system as the 10th highest-scoring district in the state. In addition, Superintendent of Schools Jane Tremblay said the scores at Summer Street Elementary School made it the top performing elementary school in the state.

During the Oct. 24 School Committee meeting, Tremblay said the high school students were given the traditional MCAS as passing the exam is a graduation requirement. “The high school students have been playing by the same set of rules for the past 10 years,” she said. However, those scores were high enough for Lynnfield High

School to be named as one of the seven high schools in Massachusetts that have closed the achievement gap. “They work incredibly hard, that’s really terrific,” said Tremblay. She said the MCAS 2.0 was developed after the State Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) received notifications from employers as well as from colleges and universities that Massachusetts school districts were “not producing students that are ready to be successful.” “The DESE takes those claims very seriously,” said Tremblay. She said a thorough presentation of the MCAS 2.0 results will be given during the committee’s Nov. 28 meeting. “The MCAS presentation on

have kept occupancy out of the question. During the Oct. 16 Special Town Meeting, residents voted, 142-26, to allow the town to sell the building to the American Legion for $1. During the meeting, Attorney Jason Kimball said the building is

“not in bad shape” and that all repairs will be funded through private donations. He said all ongoing maintenance will be funded at approximately $3,000 per annum by the Legion’s 36 members.

Nov. 28 is going to look very different,” said Tremblay. “There is a brand new baseline.” Kevin Cyr, director of Technology and Learning, said MCAS 2.0 “prepares students for beyond grade level.” “It is more rigorous,” he said. He also said that because of the new baseline, this year’s scores cannot be compared to the scores of prior years. Cyr said the 20-year-old scoring categories of “Advanced, Proficient, Needs Improvement and Warning and Failing” have been replaced by “Exceeding Expectations, Meeting Expectations, Partially Meeting Expectations and Not Meeting Expectations.” In other news, Special Education Director Kara Mauro was on hand to provide an update from her department. Mauro said that 18 percent of

Lynnfield’s students have an Individualized Education Plan and 10 percent have Individualized Health Plans. Comparing this year with the 2013-2014 school year, she said the percentage of students with specific learning disabilities has remained the same at 40 percent. The percentage of students with autism also remained the same at slightly more than 10 percent. However, the percentage of students with communication disorders dropped from 25 percent in 2013-2014 to 16 percent this year. Yet, the percentage of students with emotional disorders climbed from two percent to 10 percent. “The emotional did stand out to me,” said Mauro, adding that there was also an increase from 10 percent to 15 percent in the number of students with health disorders. She also said that because of the strong relationships that the department has with students’ families, there were only three mediations last year and one settlement conference. Currently, six percent of Lynnfield’s students have been placed outside of the district. “Dispute resolution represents a very small percentage of our overall functionality,”said Mauro. However, she said the decision to move a student out of the district is never taken lightly and always require a series of meetings. “Those meetings always involve me,” she said. “Once a student is out of district, I am the liaison for that student.” Mauro also touted the relationship between the teachers in General Education and the teachers in Special Education. “The General Ed. and Special Ed. collaboration has never been stronger – because it has to be,” she said.

Town explains logic for five additional all-alcohol licenses By Christopher Roberson


lthough the town’s Meals Tax revenue has soared by $550,000 since MarketStreet Lynnfield opened four years ago, Town Administrator James Boudreau said there was still a reason to push for five more all-alcohol licenses for restaurants during the Oct. 16 Special Town Meeting. Boudreau said the town currently has one all-alcohol license, which he expects will be snapped up by the next restaurant to go in at MarketStreet, thus leaving the town with no licenses at all. “Once that’s gone, we don’t have any left,” he said. Boudreau also said there are two other establishments in town that may eventually want to upgrade their beer and wine

licenses to all-alcohol licenses. In addition, he said it is a good idea for Lynnfield to have “one or two” licenses on hand at all times, particularly in the event that an upscale, gourmet-style restaurant considers opening in town. “Everybody wants more restaurants, restaurants are good,” he said, adding that bolstering the Meals Tax revenue is a sound form of alternative income for Lynnfield. “Anything we can do to increase revenue without having to rely on property tax,” he said. Board of Selectmen Chairman Christopher Barrett said increasing the Meals Tax is especially beneficial to Lynnfield’s senior citizen population. “In late spring, the Board of Selectmen took the leadership role in approving my recommen-

dation to create a Senior Citi- “I don’t see it being very con- troversial.” zen Advisory Council. An important part of the Senior Citizen Advisory Council is to focus on pursuing opportunities to ease or reduce the tax burden for our senior citizen population,” he said. “I’m happy to report that the Senior Citizen Advisory Council already met to begin the important discussion on how to ease the tax burden.” During Special Town Meeting, residents voted 141-23 to authorize the selectmen to petition the state for five additional all-alcohol licenses for restaurants. Boudreau said that at this point, the selectmen will ask Lynnfield’s State Delegation Fall in Love to file a Home Rule Petition for with your Hair! five additional licenses. “This is a very common thing,” he said.

Daniel Low’s silver “Witch Spoons” among Salem’s first souvenirs By Helen Breen The business Daniel Low & Co. jewelry store was a downtown Salem landmark from the 1800’s to 1995. Many still recall its impressive white columns, sparking chandeliers and wide central staircase. This fashionable emporium was earlier described as “selling high-end items like sterling and gold jewelry, cut glass, and posh items that would be seen in the better homes of New England” (journal of An ambitious and skilled silversmith, Daniel Low (18421911) established his business on the ground floor of the First Methodist Church. Entrepreneurial by nature, Low substantially increased his business through mail-order catalogs distributed nationally and abroad. By 1892 these catalogs morphed into a 200-page “Year Book” showcasing his luxury wares. Business was good. The first pattern On a trip to Europe in 1890, Daniel’s son Seth Low (18671939) noticed tourists purchasing souvenir spoons from various cities they had visited. On his return home, Seth commissioned a simple design for a sterling silver spoon with the image of a witch, three “witch pins” and the word “Salem.” This spoon is considered the first “official” souvenir of the “Witchcraft delusion” sold in the city.

wins, instead of not getting a single point against league foes. The Pioneers dropped a 2-1 decision on the grassy surface at Pentucket High School versus the Sachems. They then battled Masco to a scoreless first half, before the Chieftains were able to notch the lone goal of the game early on in the second half on Monday to lose another heartbreaker. But the good news is that they are still going to the postseason, and they have a winning 9-7 overall record, 8-7 in the Cape Ann League

(CAL) Kinney Division. Coach Mamie Reardon’s team scored first against Pentucket on a goal by Brianna Barrett assisted by Abby Buckley. But the home team Sachems tied it up just before halftime, and then scored the winning goal just three minutes into the second half. “Playing on a grassy surface is not our strong point, but nonetheless it was still a back-and-forth game,” Reardon said. “We had our chances, but just couldn’t capitalize on them.” Except for the final score,

of course, Reardon certainly had no complaints with the effort in the Masco game. “It was a great game,” she said. “We had some excellent passing combinations from the back on up to the forwards. We also had good communication out there, while pressuring Masco to take them out of their game, but once again we couldn’t find a way to get it in the net.” The Chieftains eventually were able to score a nondescript goal five minutes into

the end each can claim the second spot in the standings behind first-place Masco. Coach Mark Vermont’s team is now 11-3-3 overall, and 11-3-2 in the league with that one game left against host Essex Tech: on Saturday, Oct. 28, starting at 1 p.m. The Lynnfield girls led, 1-0 at halftime in the Pentucket game. Liz Shaievitz netted the goal from Sydney Santosuosso. Kate Mitchell gave her teammates some breathing room with a second-half tally assisted by Maddie Gibbons. Hannah Filipe added icing to the proverbial cake with a solo effort shot. Goalie Mackenzie O’Neill made three saves to help secure the shutout. Her teammates had 10 shots on the Sa-

chems’ net, but, according to Vermont, while his crew dominated, most of the game was played in the middle of the field. It was a scoreless tie at halftime in last Friday’s Masco game, but then the Chieftains warmed up and took advantage of two corner kicks to break the stalemate. The Pioneers really only accounted for several shots on the Masco net, and they were limited to just two corner kicks. It was another scoreless first half in the Newburyport game, but this time the Lynnfield girls notched the first goal of the game within the first minute of the second half. It was

he Super Bowl playoffs are here, and the Lynnfield High School Football Pioneers, despite getting thumped by Hamilton-Wenham last Friday, 357, are the top seed in Division 5 North with a 6-1 record. They will take on visiting Bedford (25, eighth seed) in a first-round game Friday night, starting at 7 p.m. The Hamilton-Wenham Generals are the top seed in Division 6 North with a perfect 7-0 record. But you would never know that these two clubs are the top seeds in the respective divisions after last Friday’s lopsided results. The Generals sought revenge on coach Neal Weidman’s squad, who have owned them throughout the past five seasons. It was your typical dogfight throughout the first half, with both teams staring at a 7-7 stalemate at halftime. But then the Generals took command, and the Lynnfield boys did not know what hit them.



QB Matt Mortellite dodges a pair of Hamilton-Wenham linemen.

Hamilton-Wenham was credited with the first touchdown of the game, but Lynnfield quarterback Matt Mortellite answered them right back with a 23-yard scoring strike to Nick Kinnon with less than four minutes left in the first half. The Lynnfield defense tried to spark the offense with a couple of stops and an interception by Jason Ndansi. But for the most part, the offense couldn’t take advantage of those opportunities. Mortellite completed 17 passes for 137 yards, and Peter Look caught four of his aerials for 87 yards. Weidman hopes his team just puts this blip on the radar behind them, and realize Friday night begins a brand-new season on the road to, hopefully, Gillette Stadium, the final destination that all Bay State high

school football teams shoot for when they first suit up for practice in late August. It’s still a three-step process, and if they survive each week, then they will be booking a time at Gillette on that first Saturday in December in order to play for the state Super Bowl championship. If everything goes according to plan Friday night, the Pioneers will then play the winner of the Weston-Newburyport game (Saturday at Wellesley High School, 2:30 p.m.), probably on Friday, Nov. 4. Weston is the fourth seed with a 5-2 record. The Clippers (3-3) are the fifth seed. Somerville (5-2, second seed), Swampscott (61, third seed), Watertown (3-4, sixth seed) and Triton (2-5, seventh seed) are the other Division 5 North playoff teams.

Light The Night draws nearly 1,000 to Lake Quannapowitt By Christopher Roberson


s dark ness fell over Wakefield, the red, gold and white lanterns of more than 800 walkers illuminated the three-and-a-half mile route around Lake Quannapowitt for the Light The Night Walk hosted by the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS). According to the Light The Night website,, the white lanterns are carried by cancer survivors, the gold lanterns are carried by walkers who have lost a loved one and the red lanterns are carried by LLS supporters. During the Oct. 21 walk, Rachel Soll, campaign director of Light The Night, said leukemia continues to affect children more than any other cancer. In adults, acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is the most difficult kind of leukemia to treat with a 27-percent survival rate. However, Soll said LLS has had a significant influence on the number of recent drug approvals by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. “There’s some great things happening,” she said, adding that cancer in the blood is “easier to study” as it can be viewed under a microscope. Soll also said some of the drugs that are used to treat leukemia in the bloodstream can also be used to treat solid tumors. “It depends on the person,” she LEGAL NOTICE

Tip: Risotto is a cooking technique; hot liquid is added gradually to help release starch from the grain resulting in a creamy texture.
