Amazon a possibility for Centennial Park By Christopher Roberson


arlier this year, city officials were notified by the State Office of Consumer Affairs and Business that was in the market for a location to house its second North American headquarters and that Peabody is one of the state’s recommended municipalities. But 25 other cities and towns across the Commonwealth have also been included in the 182-page package that state officials will be sending to Amazon. Some of the other contenders are Waltham, Boston, Lynn, Tewksbury, Lowell and Somerville. However, Mayor Edward Bettencourt said he is excited just to have the chance at getting Amazon into Centennial Park. “Amazon is a global giant; this would be terrific for Peabody on so many levels,” he said. “We have land, highway access and low taxes; those are the selling points of our city.” Bettencourt also touted Peabody’s 20-mile proximity to the state’s capital. “We’re

very close to Boston, it’s a short ride,” he said. “You can hop on any highway from Centennial Park.” Curtis Bellavance, director of Community Development and Planning, said the local office supply stores would also benefit, as their services

would be required for Amazon to conduct its operations. Should Amazon express a sincere interest in coming to Peabody, Bettencourt said, a Tax Increment Financing (TIF) agreement could be used as another incentive, adding that he has been waiting for the

right time to offer a TIF. “For a strong corporate presence in the city, that’s something I would certainly consider,” he said. Although zoning variances would not be needed, Bettencourt said the City Council would need to approve a TIF agreement. State Rep. Theodore Speliotis said Amazon would have a highly qualified pool of job applicants. “I don’t think Amazon wants cheap labor; they want quality employees,” he said. “We have perhaps the most sophisticated workforce in the country.” He was also confident that there would be no shortage of positions for jobseekers. “You need workers of all grades, from minimum wage to PhDs,” said Speliotis. He also said the rental costs

on the North Shore are much more reasonable than those in Cambridge and Boston. “The housing market on the North Shore is as diverse as anywhere in the country,” he said, adding that traffic would not be nearly as much of an obstacle for anyone commuting from other North Shore communities – “We’re an attractive location; it provides many of the opportunities of the city without the hassle.” Established in July 1994,, Inc. is currently headquartered in Seattle and provides 341,400 jobs. According to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, the company’s total revenue for 2016 was $135.98 billion. The National Retail Federation ranked Amazon as the leading online retailer for 2017.

Planning Board waiting for DPS decision on Birchwood By Christopher Roberson


he Planning Board recently voted unanimously to wait until its November meeting to make a final decision regarding the proposed Birchwood subdivision in West Peabody. During the board’s Oct. 19 meeting, members agreed that they did not feel comfortable moving forward without a green light from the Department of Public Services (DPS). Therefore, the board agreed to send a letter to DPS Director David Terenzoni asking him to accelerate the process of rendering a decision. Prior to the board’s vote, Attorney Athan Vontzalides, counsel for developer Carl Crupi, tried to nudge the board toward the finish line. “It’s a good subdivision. I’d like to see it voted on properly,” he said, adding that Crupi has been waiting to get started and “It’s a little unfair to the developer; we’ll be lucky to clear trees before the snow falls.” Following the meeting, Vontzalides said the project, which would consist of 23 homes, has been in the approval process since September 2016. “We’ve been at this for a good year,” he said, adding that this is the typical time frame needed for a subdivision to be approved – “Anytime you do a definitive subdivision it’s usually a long process – the process takes as long as it takes.” However, Vontzalides said there is always the risk that the real estate market could tumble as time continues to pass. “That’s not good for anybody,” he said. The project has also encountered its share of resistance, most notably during a meeting of the Municipal Safety Committee that was held in March. During the meeting, concerns were raised about the possibility of blasting at the site, which is very close to Burke Elementary School. “We’re in a school zone and kids are out at recess,” said School Committee Member John Olimpio. “With blasting going on, it can cause great concern.” Neighborhood residents also recognized the potential of construction vehicles impeding traffic and jeopardizing students’ safety.

Councillor Thomas Gould on the hunt for a fourth term By Christopher Roberson


ncumbent Councillor-at-Large Thomas Gould does not plan on going anywhere, particularly with more work to do on revitalizing downtown Peabody. “We are starting to see the fruits of our labor as far as the downtown is concerned,” he said. “However, there is still a lot of work to be done. We also have to continue to work at filling the vacancies at Centennial Park and the North Shore Mall.” Having been on the council for the past six years, Gould said each election is always “a little different” from the one be-

fore it. “Really, it’s all about people and what they have for issues,” he said. “It’s about getting out there and reconnecting with folks as well as meeting new folks. All eight candidates are qualified to be elected, and I am just hoping I am one of the five that are elected.” During the Oct. 17 City Council debate, Gould said serious work needs to be done on the stretch of Route 1 that runs through Peabody. “Route 1 really needs a facelift, it’s in dire need,” he said. Gould also said there is plenty of space for science and technology businesses to open at Centennial Park, adding that

Boston and Kendall Square in Cambridge are rapidly running out of real estate.

Although the council had been accused, in prior years, of having a cumbersome permitting process, Gould said that is no longer the case. “We turned that corner a couple of years ago,” he said. In addition to his work on the council and assisting a myriad of charitable organizations, Gould and his family have been the owners of Treadwell’s Ice Cream on Margin Street for the past 17 years. Councillor-at-large candidates include challengers Ryan Melville, Peter Bakula, Thomas Rossignoll and Russell Donovan. In addition, to Gould, Councillors-at-Large David Gravel and

Anne Manning-Martin are also seeking reelection. In the ward races, Ward 1 Councillor Jon Turco, Ward 2 Councillor Peter McGinn and Ward 3 Councillor James Moutsoulas are all running unopposed in the Nov. 7 General Election. Ward 4 Councillor Edward Charest is being challenged by Bukia Chalvire, and Ward 5 Councillor Joel Saslaw is being challenged by James Jeffrey. There is no incumbent candidate in Ward 6 with the upcoming retirement of Councillor Barry Sinewitz. Candidates Michael Geomelos and Mark O’Neill are vying for that seat.

Veteran School Committee member not ‘Dunne’ yet

Beverley Griffin-Dunne

By Christopher Roberson


espite 13 years of service on the School Committee, Member Beverley Griffin-Dunne does not believe her time is up just yet, citing changes in state and federal regulations, school building maintenance and the task of hiring a new superintendent of schools. A practicing attorney, Griffin-Dunne said she has been able to employ her understanding of education law to assist the committee. “I believe my experience and my dedication to the Peabody Public Schools has given me a depth of knowledge about our schools and the issues facing public education today,” she said. Thus far, Griffin-Dunne said her run for another four-year term has been “going great.” “Campaigning is, to me, the really fun part of the election process,” she said. “It’s hard work but very important and it’s enjoyable to talk with fellow citizens about our schools.” She also noted how voters’ mindsets have changed since

the last time she ran for office in 2013. “This year, a lot of people are concerned with needed improvements to our school buildings,” said Griffin-Dunne. “Last election, people were interested to see what would happen with the new Higgins Middle School.” Prior to her tenure as a school official, Griffin-Dunne was a member of the School Council at Welch Elementary School. She has also been Peabody’s delegate at the annual conference hosted by the Massachusetts Association of School Committees. “I have been advocating for Peabody Public Schools for many years,” said Griffin-Dunne. “Every year, I advocate with our state senators and representatives for educational funding and im-

provements for our schools. I have testified before state boards on educational issues and have met with the commissioner of Education on issues affecting Peabody.” In 2014, she challenged thenState Rep. Leah Cole for her seat in the Twelfth Essex District. However, Cole went onto win that election by 435 votes. Most recently, the City Council voted unanimously, on Sept. 14, to appoint Griffin-Dunne as the city’s representative to the Essex North Shore Agricultural and Technical School District. However, Griffin-Dunne has predicted a major downfall in public education as federal funding continues to dwindle. According to budget documents from the U.S. Department

ference (NEC) match at Marblehead on Tuesday evening. The Tanners scored a 25-22 victory in the opening set but were unable to overcome the host Magicians in game two, falling in an epic 33-31 battle. From there, Marblehead prevailed in sets three and four by scores of 25-15 and 25-16. The loss ended any hopes of an NEC title for the playoff-bound Tanners, who were 12-4 overall after Tuesday’s match. Tatiana Correia was stellar on defense with 33 digs, as was Martyna Kot with 27.

he Peabody boys' soccer team looked to be playoff bound after earning a big come-from-behind win over Marblehead early last week. But two straight losses since have left the Tanners with the task of having to notch three points (equivalent to at least a win and a tie) over their final three games to qualify for the tournament. On Monday, Kevin Aroke scored Peabody’s lone goal in a 6-1 loss at Somerville. Goalie Troy Cappos played well in net with 14 saves as Peabody dropped to 7-7-1 overall with the defeat. The Tanners end their season with three road games, which began with a scheduled contest at Lynn Classical on Wednesday (after press deadline).

Tanners stymie Panthers but miss playoffs

Peabody School Committee

Running back Angel Paulino dodges the Beverly defender.

By Greg Phipps


he Peabody Tanners didn’t qualify for the state playoffs this season, but the team appears to be hitting its stride entering the final stretch of the 2017 campaign. Another strong defensive effort and surprise performances from sophomore linebackers Joe Casey and James Guiry and sophomore running back Angel Paulino helped lead the way to a 20-9 Senior Night dismantling of the Northeastern Conference rival Beverly Panthers last Friday night at Veterans Memorial Stadium. It was Peabody’s second straight win and first triumph on its home turf this year.

earned its third shutout of the season. The Tanner defense held Beverly to minus-14 yards rushing and 47 yards total for the game. Cam Powers, Dariel Canela and Michael Lock each had quarterback sacks as the visitors struggled to generate any attack. “Our defense has played really well the last couple of weeks, and we’re playing bet-

ter as a team all around. I wish it had happened earlier,” said Peabody head coach Mark Bettencourt when asked about his team’s improvement over the past two weeks. “We feel good about ourselves right now, and the goal for these kids is to keep this thing going. It would be great to end the

Dear Residents of Peabody I have just had recent discussions with RCN, one of the low cost communications company in the region. Their senior officials are interested in coming to Peabody and building a fiber optic network to compete with Comcast. RCN is currently in surrounding towns and has provided quality Internet and TV service to it residents. They also will create competition for the “COMCAST MONOPOLY” problem. Soon I will coordinate a meeting with our city officials to see if RCN will be a good fit for the city, in attempts to lower internet/TV rates. However, I am very tuned into other cities with municipal electric systems that have built their own fiber optic systems that offer high speed internet, TV & phone services for their ratepayers better, faster, cheaper. I am committed to accomplish this and if elected to the Peabody Light Commission, it will only strengthen my position to pursue these options for “our great city”. Your vote on Nov. 7th will be greatly appreciated.

It has a fragile, tender edible skin and seeds. The winter squash has a drier, orange flesh and is more fibrous and much sweeter than summer squash. The skin of winter squash is not edible. There are several varieties of winter squash. The butternut squash is most commonly utilized in everyday cooking. Risotto is all the rage on restaurants’ menus. Below is my version of risotto.

Tip: Risotto is a cooking technique; hot liquid is added gradually to help release starch from the grain resulting in a creamy texture. Adding different ingredients to the usual base of butter or oil and onions can vary the risotto. Additions can be shellfish, ground or diced meats, most vegetables and herbs.

“No” vote is against it.)

Beacon Hill Roll Call By Bob Katzen THE HOUSE AND SENATE: Beacon Hill Roll Call records local senators’ votes on several roll calls on overriding some of Gov. Charlie Baker’s cuts of $320 million in spending in the $39.4 billion fiscal 2018 state budget. A two-thirds vote in both branches is needed for a veto to be overridden. The House has restored the entire $320 million and the Senate has restored only $75.8 million but plans to override other vetoes in the coming weeks. House and Senate Democratic leaders say Baker’s cuts would hurt many people including the sick, seniors, children and minorities. The governor and GOP leaders question if the state can afford to restore all this funding. Some Republicans said that because of this uncertainty they voted to sustain all of Gov. Baker’s vetoes, even though it meant voting against restoring funding for many good programs they would otherwise have supported. $2.5 MILLION FOR HIV AND AIDS (H 3800) Senate 37-0, overrode a reduction of $2.5 million (from $30,834,416 to $28,334,416) for HIV, AIDS, viral hepatitis, sexually transmitted infections and tuberculosis programs. (A “Yes” vote is for funding the $2.5 million.) Sen. Joan Lovely


$275,000 FOR PROSTATE CANCER (H 3800) Senate 37-0, overrode a reduction of $275,000 (from $550,000 to $275,000) for prostate cancer awareness, education and research programs focusing on men with African-American, Hispanic or Latino heritage, family history of the disease and other men at high risk. (A “Yes” vote is for funding the $275,000.) Sen. Joan Lovely


$200,000 FOR STROKE PROGRAMS (H 3800) Senate 36-1, overrode a cut of the entire $200,000 for stroke treatment and prevention programs. (A “Yes” vote is for funding the $200,000. A

$100,000 FOR DOWN SYNDROME PROGRAMS (H 3800) Senate 37-0, overrode a cut of the entire $100,000 for a Down Syndrome Program at the Children’s Medical Center at the University of Massachusetts Memorial Medical Center in Worcester. (A “Yes” vote is for funding the $100,000.) Sen. Joan Lovely


$1.1 MILLION FOR RECOVERY HIGH SCHOOLS (H 3800) Senate 37-0, overrode a reduction of $1.1 million (from $3.6 million to $2.5 million) for recovery high schools — public schools where students can earn a high school diploma and are supported in their recovery from alcohol and drug use. (A “Yes” vote is for funding the $1.1 million.) Sen. Joan Lovely


$150,000 FOR JOB TRAINING FOR YOUNG ADULTS WITH DISABILITIES (H 3800) Senate 36-1, overrode a cut of the entire $150,000 for an employment training program for unemployed young adults with disabilities. (A “Yes” vote is for funding the $150,000. A “No” vote is against funding it.) Sen. Joan Lovely


HOW LONG WAS LAST WEEK’S SESSION? Beacon Hill Roll Call tracks the length of time that the House and Senate were in session each week. Many legislators say that legislative sessions are only one aspect of the Legislature’s job and that a lot of important work is done outside of the House and Senate chambers. They note that their jobs also involve committee work, research, constituent work and other matters that are important to their districts. Critics say that the Legislature does not meet regularly or long enough to debate and vote in public view on the thousands of pieces of legislation that have been filed. They note that the infrequency and brief length of sessions are misguided and lead to irresponsible late-night sessions and a mad rush to act on dozens of bills in the days immediately preceding the end of an annual session. During the week of October 16-20, the House met for a total of 36 minutes and the Senate met for a total of seven hours and three minutes.
