NEWBURYPORT – If you

a few years. A new report on the

impact of climate change on the

will rise significantly over the next

three decades with five times as

many days here on the North

Shore at above 90 degrees.

The report by the Horsley

Witten Group of Exeter, NH, on

Newburyport’s preparedness for the

predicted climate change reads like

the script for another frightening

film about an impending weather

apocalypse.

The report, commissioned by

the city and unveiled at a recent

public forum, predicts:

• Temperature increases could

make Newburyport feel like

present-day New Jersey by

2050 and present-day Tennessee

by 2100.

• By 2100, the city could go

from five times more 90 plus

degree days at the mid-century

mark to more than 11

times as many as it has today.

• Average annual precipitation

will increase up to 13 percent

by 2050 and up to 17 percent

by 2100 with the largest increases

occurring in winter.

–––––––––––––––––

• Sea levels

could rise

as much as

2.6 feet by

2050 and

9.8 feet by

2100.

good news,

temperatures.

• The growing

season here could go up

50 percent by 2050 and almost

double by the end of the

century.

The report also predicts that

Newburyport residents will have

to spend less on heating in the

winter, but much more on cooling

in the summer.

On April 7, the city held

a workshop on Municipal

Vulnerabilities Preparedness

(MVP), which was attended by 38

city officials and other stakeholders

to discuss ways to anticipate

the strains on the environment

follow-up public forum was held

June 29 to review the findings of

the workshop.

“During discussion, participants

concluded that the most relevant

hazards to Newburyport were

storms, including nor’easters,

winter storms, and hurricanes;

bipolar weather including extreme

cold, extreme heat, and drought;

inland flooding; and sea level rise,”

the report stated.

MVP certification, which allows

communities to access additional

state grants from the state Office of

Energy and Environmental Affairs

for projects related to climate

change resiliency.

The report identifies several

areas of concern about the city’s

preparedness.

• The waste water treatment

plant. The report proposes in

the short term to flood-proof

the facility on the riverfront.

Over the next 40 to 50 years,

when the plant is aging, it

should be replaced, the report

proposes.

• Plum Island. The report suggests

the city create shortterm

and long-term plans

for the management of the

island, including access to it

on the Plum Island Turnpike.

Continued from page 1

Heroine is the opportunity for us to

recognize women who have made

a significant contribution to their

community, but who have done so

without significant recognition.”

The program for the 15th annual

ceremony wrote: “The Unsung

Heroines of 2018 are truly positive

change makers. They may not

always make the news, but they

most assuredly make a difference. A

grateful Commonwealth sings their

praises today to show each of these

special women how much we value

their efforts and contributions.’

The recipients, nominated by

her state legislator, wore yellow

roses, the symbol of the Women’s

Suffrage Movement. “Today, the

yellow rose reminds us that our

own work to improve the status

of women in the Commonwealth

continues, requiring diversity,

unity and determination,” the

event booklet said.

Sen. Kathleen O’Conner Ives, D-

Newburyport, said, “I appreciate

the Massachusetts Commission

on the Status of Women’s Unsung

Heroine initiative to spotlight

women in the Commonwealth

who are simply motivated by

a desire to contribute in their

communities. The difficult part

each time is narrowing it down

to one nominee, as there are an

abundance of deserving women of

this recognition in the First Essex

District.”

Kim Keene and Elizabeth

McCarthy of Newburyport,

nominated by Rep. James

Kelcourse, R-Amesbury, were

honored for co-founding the

Pelican Intervention Fund, an

organization that provides effective

treatment and financial support for

those battling opoid addiction.

“Experiencing loved ones’

long-term Twelve Step based

residential care, Keene and

McCarthy founded the Pelican

Intervention Fund to help others

access care that heals at the roots.

They wanted to share a message of

hope, that recovery from addiction

is possible.”

The ceremony program wrote

of Keene and McCarthy, “Their

commitment to helping others

has already made a major impact

on those suffering from addiction,

and they continue to improve

the lives of citizens across their

community.”

Carol Finn of Amesbury,

nominated by Sen. Ives, was

honored for her work to save the

aging Main Street Congregational

Church from being turned into

condominiums. Finn and her

husband raised $200,000 to help

preserve the church. The event

brochure called Finn a “tireless

volunteer,” who donates her time

to such diverse projects as Our

Neighbors Table food pantry and

the tree commission.

Sen. Ives wrote, “I was happy

to nominate Carol Finn this year,

as she always makes community

betterment her priority. Whether

fundraising for the restoration of

historical buildings, volunteering

at the Amesbury Public Library

or Our Neighbors’ Table, Carol is

always quick to respond to calls for

help in the community.”

Kathleen Downey of Byfield,

nominated by Rep. Lenny Mirra,

R-West Newbury, is an advocate

for animal rights.

“She consistently reaches out

to her local officials to stress the

importance of various animal rights

bills passing through the House of

Representatives,” the ceremony

program wrote. It described her

commitment to the safety and

respect of animals all over the

Commonwealth as “unparalleled.”

Carol Pallazolla of Gloucester,

nominated by Rep. Ann-Margaret

Ferrante, D-Gloucester, helps local

seniors remain in their home. She

teaches courses about arthritis

pain relief and volunteers with the

Cornell Orthotics and Prosthetics

Amputee Association to provide

a forum for amputees and their

families.

Susan Canning of Gloucester,

nominated by Sen. Bruce Tarr, R-

Gloucester, has been volunteering

with the Cape Ann Veterans Service

for almost 20 years. She plays an

essential role in the city’s Memorial

and Veterans Day ceremonies and

parades. Every Friday, she attends

a veteran breakfast. She also

packs boxes to be sent to troops

overseas.

“Susan was instrumental in

researching missing information

about more than 5,500 Gloucester

men and women who served

in World War II so they could

be honored on a War World II

Memorial,” the event booklet said.

All of the honorees, the

commission on the status of women

said, “use their time, talent, and

enthusiasm to enrich the lives of

others and make a difference in their

neighborhoods, cities, and towns.

They are mentors, volunteers, and

innovators who do what needs to

be done, without expectations of

recognition or gratitude. These

women are the glue that keeps a

community together and every

community has them.”

Community Announcements

BYFIELD - The World War II Monument Committee is seeking help from the public to locate family members of veterans whose names

are etched on a monument at the corner of Central and Church streets in Byfield. Since March, the committee has been developing a

Community Connections

plan to move the monument from privately owned land to town/municipal land. Their vision is to create a small park; some ideas include

installing a piece of granite to feature the 117 names of soldiers on the current memorial, installing a brick walkway with the names of

veterans inscribed on the bricks and benches to sit and reflect. Their goal is to privately fund this project, hoping that families of the

veterans will help support this. When the project is complete they intend to hold a dedication service. In the meantime, the committee is

He is so excited and happy that his humans just listed the

family’s largest asset (their home) with Kathryn O’Brien.

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Don’t be Sheepish about asking

questions and demanding answers. You not only gain needed

information, but also respect for your steadfast search for the

truth.

TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) A money problem that shows up

early in the week is expeditiously resolved by savvy Bovines who

know how to turn a momentary financial lapse into a monetary

gain.

GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) It’s a good time to shed negative

energy-draining forces and develop a positive approach to handling current, as well as upcoming, personal

and/or professional situations.

CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Your urge to do your best on a current task is commendable. But don’t

let it become all-consuming. Spend some spiritually restorative time

with those who love you.

LEO (July 23 to August 22) This could be a good time for all you

Leos and Leonas to take your bows for your recent achievements and

then go off to enjoy some fun times with your prides and joys.

VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) A negative response to a wellintentioned

suggestion could communicate a sense of distrust you

might later find hard to refute. Think carefully before reacting.

LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Your loving attention

comforts a family member who is feeling a bit out of sorts. But be

careful to prioritize your time so you don’t neglect your work duties.

SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Your curiosity might be

resented by some. But those who know you will support your penchant

for never settling for less than the truth. So stay with it.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) A pesky situation

from the past recurs, albeit in an altered form. Deal with it promptly

before it can go from merely irksome to decidedly troublesome.

CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Don’t wait too long to

submit your proposals after giving them a last look-over. If necessary,

you should be able to defend any portion called into question.

AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) A bid to use your

workplace dispute-settling skills in another situation is tempting. But

be careful: You might not have all the facts you’ll need if you agree

to do it.

PISCES (February 19 to March 20) That sense of self-doubt is so

untypical of you, you should have no qualms in shaking it off. Remind

Health & Wellness

By J. Peter St. Clair, DMD

What is your definition of oral

health? Is there even a standard

definition of oral health? One

thing is clear; the definition

of oral health is not solely the

absence of pain. Pain is also not

necessarily an indication of poor

oral health.

It wasn’t until the year 2000

that oral health was brought

to the forefront of the surgeon

general’s report as a critical

component to overall health.

This was an important event, but

unfortunately never amounted

to much in terms of being

incorporated into most healthcare

policies.

In 2005 at the World Congress

of Preventive Dentistry,

participants from 43 countries

made it clear that oral health is

an integral part of general health

and overall well-being. They even

concluded that oral health is a

basic human right.

More recently, the United

It will pay to shop Ipswich Ford

he Town Common

Nations recognized oral disease

as an integral part of other noncommunicable

diseases such as

diabetes, cardiovascular disease,

stroke, chronic respiratory diseases

and cancer. This association with

these other diseases was based

on common social determinants

such as socioeconomic status,

diet, tobacco and alcohol use, and

not on the basis of transmission.

However, there is still no solid

definition of what oral health

really is.

According to a recent column

in the Journal of the American

Dental Association, the American

Dental Association is working

on a proposed definition of oral

health. The authors of the column

state, “A proposed definition is

necessary to achieve a common

understanding of the scope of

oral health, to help understand

the array of complex oral and

systemic health issues facing

dental and medical professions

now and in the future, and to

provide a rationale to position oral

health professionals as partners

within primary health care.”

The authors go on to say that the

definition of oral health needs to

align with the current definition

of dentistry. That definition

currently states, “dentists are

responsible not only for the

evaluation, diagnosis, prevention

and treatment of diseases and

conditions of the oral cavity, the

maxillofacial area and adjacent

areas but also for assessing their

impact on the human body.”

As new tests and knowledge in

the area of oral health increases,

the days of simply recording

missing and decayed teeth and

poking patients with instruments

to chart periodontal (gum) issues

may not be enough to best serve

patients. What we can learn from

things such as genetic testing and

salivary diagnostics will change

the way we interact with our

medical colleagues and greatly

benefit our patients.

In conclusion, the authors

state, “As the definition of oral

health evolves and likely will

continue to evolve well into the

future, no matter how oral health

Where Do You Stand?

is defined, the message remains:

Oral health is essential to an

individual’s general health and

quality of life.”

So, while the powers that

be work on the definition of

oral health, it is our individual

responsibility to take care of

ourselves. If we know that oral

health is connected to the rest of

the body and if we care enough to

take care of our body, then regular

professional maintenance and

constantly improving our home

care should be at the forefront of

our self-care.
