Moulton Family Meets Constituents Modernizing a Beloved Institution

www.thetowncommon.com

REGIONAL – It was

Emma Moulton’s first

congressional town hall,

and the newborn never let

out a peep as her mother

and father, U.S. Rep. Seth

Moulton, D-Salem, last

week addressed a near

capacity crowd at the

Newburyport Senior and

Community Center.

While the congressman’s

mother, Lynn Moulton,

held Emma, wife

Liz introduced her

husband, telling her

fellow constituents that

Seth wants them to be

“demanding” of him and

his staff.

She also said her

husband, one of the newest

candidates for President

“cannot lie,” a contrast to

the current occupant of

the White House, who the

New York Times claims has lied 10,000

times since becoming President. Even

when she botched cooking a salmon

dinner as a new bride, he couldn’t tell

her it was good.

“He is wholly about helping others,” Liz

Boardman Moulton said as she handed

the microphone to her husband.

A second-term congressman, Seth

Moulton hit most of the current

hot issues – sewage overflows in the

Merrimack River, the opioid crisis,

health care and his support for the

Green Deal. Several constituents asked

what he hoped Congress might do to

improve maternity leave – a topic close

to the new father’s heart -- and what it

is like to work in such a hyper-partisan

environment as Congress is.

On the sewage overflow issue,

Moulton said he is partnering with U.S.

Rep. Lori Trahan, D-MA, in sponsoring

legislation to begin to fix the problem.

Moulton has sponsored legislation to

force sewage plants upriver to notify

municipalities downriver when they

dump raw sewage into the river. Trahan

and Moulton have also introduced

legislation to finance long-term

solutions to the problem, he said.

Just as the people of Flint, MI should

be able to drink their municipal water,

“You shouldn’t have to worry about

swimming in the Merrimack,” he said.

Two constituents told him stories of

losing family members to opioids and

one asked that he stop opioids being

shipped through the U.S. Postal Service.

He said he has introduced a bill to make

it a crime for Chinese manufacturers to

flood the U.S. market with the drug

fentanyl.

NEWBURYPORT – Step into the

this town given

the recent unsuccessful attempts to gather records.

In response to the recent town meeting, Rowley citizens thought

our town fathers protect Pets, us. “They” Animals, don’t!!!! They should Plus be focused

on their “DUTY” as overseers, especially finance. That’s “public fund

spending”, “contract Health approval” and the & development Fitness of articles for our

town meetings. What’s the sense of doing the last without the concern

of the first two?

The fabulous 88 will be there to “back em up” no doubt, as I called

them in a recent letter to editor. They are summoned to follow lockstep

with anything the selectmen or their finance committee recommends at

the town meetings. Be prepared, the Fabulous 88 will show up to vote.

You won’t recognize them but expect them to vote their town father’s

recommendations because “they” take ownership of them being up on

that stage!

Looking through the town meeting warrants, the phrase “FREE Cash”

jumps out at the general voting population. The state, who certifies the

FREE cash, should tell the town its’ not FREE! The finance committee/

selectmen appear to recommend budgets that generate excess cash. That’s

the FREE Cash shuffle!

Because its labeled “FREE”, it’s used on projects like increasing the

cable quality to High Definition for the meetings ($70,000), $136,583

new computers (that’s roughly 75 computers for 5 departments or

$27,000 per department), a $175,000 eighty thousand dollar new truck

for the street department, $100,000 for tree cutting for the tree warden

(I guess that’s for 125 chainsaws for the department for our men to trim

trees), $15,000 for a new website to replace the one that’s fine and finally

$604,454 from the water department FREE cash to go to stabilization.

There you have it, a “CONSERTED EFFORT TO REDUCE TAXES

OR RATES”!

FREE cash here is developed by the poor budgetary processes in the

water department over the last 8 years, much I witnessed personally, which

has generated over $3,000,000. These facts are readily available through

the public records laws for Massachusetts. Not so much in Rowley.

That’s three MILLION DOLLARS!!!! Thanks to the water board

handing over to the selectmen in 2016! Please raise your hand if you

think that money should have been put toward rate reduction or

efficiency consultants!

Watch out, in the future, for those “recommendations”!!! The “fabulous

88” will be in line to vote them in!! I forgot to mention that old movie

saying, “See no evil, hear no evil”. Last Monday on TV, you could see the

evil but you couldn’t hear it. The sound was turned off!

bought a house in the Great

Bay area of New Hampshire

and planned to retire there after

living in central Massachusetts

for 55 years.

The board assured him it

had no intention of selling

the bank. So he went home

and told his wife that if he was

offered the job, they would

be moving. “I could not resist

the opportunity to relocate

permanently to the Seacoast

region,” he said,

Moulton Family Meets Constituents

Continued from page 1

“It is not going to be easy to

fix these problems,” he said. But

when asked what he thought

the chances are to solve the

opioid crisis, Moulton said he is

optimistic. “I’m hopeful because

I believe in this country,” he

said.

An 11-year-old asked the

congressman about renewable

energy. “I suspect climate

change is important to you,”

Moulton said, adding that the

U.S. should be a world leader

in renewable energy.

He noted that he was an early

supporter of the Green Deal

and pushed the idea of creating

a Green Jobs Corps, much like

the Great Depression program,

the Civilian Conservation

Corps that built national parks.

The new Green Jobs Corps,

he said, would make buildings

more energy efficient and other

environmental projects.

On health care, Moulton

said “Every American has the

right to health care, affordable,

available health care.” But he

does not favor the proposed

Medicare for All, which would

provide health care in one plan

offered by the government. He

prefers a blend of public and

private health care plans that

compete against one another

and bring down the costs of

medical care.

The Marine Corp. officer

who served four tours in Iraq

said he is working to defund

old weapon systems in favor of

new weapons needed for 21st

Century wars. He criticized

President Trump for “tearing

apart” the NATO Alliance.

Other legislation he is working

on included a bill to give people

with intellectual disabilities the

resources they need and a bill

to protect the Right Wales. He

also told the constituent who

asked that Congress adopt a

better maternity leave, “We are

the only developed country that

Modernizing a Beloved Institution

For all the on-going changes

at the bank, there is a strong

commitment to its past. Visit

the new board room on the

first floor of the downtown

headquarters and see its

ceiling, a restored work of

art that goes back a hundred

years. Workers uncovered the

elegant ceiling from the 1920s

in the large rectangular room

the bank uses for staff training,

community meetings and of

course board meetings.

“We are keeping the best

does not have good maternity

leave policies.”

He noted that since Emmy

was born he has a more acute

recognition of the challenges

young families and particularly

single-parent families face.

On the bi-partisanship in

Congress, he complained

that “too many bills die in

the (Republican-controlled)

Senate.” He said too few of his

colleagues believe, “we are all in

this together.”

He told a story about going

to dinner with an Oklahoma

Republican who was also a

veteran. His fellow congressman

kept looking around the

restaurant concerned that other

Republicans would see him

dining with a Massachusetts

Democratic congressman.

“Hey, man, it’s not a date.”

He joked. “This was before I

was married.”

He has since forged

a relationship with the

conservative congressman

and worked together on

controversial legislation.

“It’s so important to me

to work with Republicans

although they are hard to work

with,” he said.

He said people, whether in

Congress or the local coffee

shop, feel comfortable staying

in their corners demonizing one

another. In Iraq, his platoon

was made up of soldiers who

held diverse views and came

from different backgrounds.

“We overcame it in Iraq for the

good of the country. We need

to expect that of Congress.”

Moulton said he spends a lot

of time working on economic

development issues and noted

that the city of Lynn is making

great strides toward improving

its economy. He advocated a

better regional rail line that

would be funded by the federal

government.

In general, he said the U.S.

economy looks good, but too

of the past, while we make

the bank functional for the

future,” he said.

Hamm has assumed the

top position of a healthy local

bank. Under Morse, the bank

increased its assets from $623

million to more than $850

million. Although the bank

is currently investing more

money on technology, new

lines of service and the “best

people”, he said he expects the

bank to increase its assets and

profitability in coming years.

Real Estate • For Sale

Step by Step Guide to Homeownership

Over the last few weeks I have

had meetings with a number of

first time buyers trying to break

into this seller’s market. If we have

heard this once, we have heard it a

million times that buying a home

is probably the biggest investment

you will ever make. Not only are

there short term ramifications but

long term financial ones as well.

When making any decision this

big you should naturally talk with

someone who is an expert in the

field. Therefore, when buying

a home, you can learn from the

knowledge and skill of a local

REALTOR® who is doing business

and in my opinion lives, in the

area of your home search. Here

are some tips I put together:

Get Pre-Approved

Talk with your bank or mortgage

company to help you determine

what you can and can’t afford.

Loan pre-approval not only helps

you determine the home price

you can afford, but also shows a

seller that you are a genuine buyer

not just a looker. Don’t save this

step for last! You never know

when the perfect home is going to

come on the market, scrambling

to find your mortgage agent to

get preapproved immediately may

not be an easy thing to do.

Research

A seller isn’t going to call you

to tell you their home is going up

for sale. However, an experienced

REALTOR® in your target search

area can. Most sales are started

with a buyer or REALTOR®

finding a home on the Multiple

Listing Service (MLS), but there

are also sales that never go on the

Multiple Listing Service (MLS).

A local experienced REALTOR®

may hear or meet with a seller

who has the perfect home for

you. By working with this local

REALTOR® you may be able to

get into this home before it goes

on the market. In a competitive

market like this one any edge

may help get you into your dream

home.

Make a Plan

Even if you were going away

for a long weekend you would

sit down and plan some sort of

itinerary right? Every important

decision needs to be clearly

thought out. Developing a home

buying plan can help you focus

on the important factors and

organize the entire process. I’ve

had a few buyers go through

a showing with a chart giving

scores to each important part of

a home. This can help you keep

the houses straight and while you

may see a home that is perfect but

too expensive first time through,

when the price drops you can

refer back to your notes and make

an offer.

Get Value

Sports • Sports • Sports

By John McCarthy, Rowley Realty

Although the last four or five

Pets, years have seen Animals, homes appreciate, Plus

in some cases dramatically, market

history tells us that we will have

Health a downturn at some & point. Fitness

A

purchase made 13-15 years ago

at approximately the high point

of the market currently is close

to, or worth as much as it was

purchased for. Your REALTOR®

will sit with you BEFORE you

start your search to get an idea

as to what you want and what

you need (see next paragraph).

After seeing a home you love your

REALTOR® will give you an idea

as to what they think it is worth.

Need vs. Want

When shopping for a home, list

the features (number of bedrooms

or baths, a fireplace, open concept,

etc.) that are most important to

you. What are “deal breakers”?

What can you live with? What

can’t you live with? What do you

need vs. what do you want? For

example, you have decided that

you NEED a 4 bedroom home

and won’t even look at a home

with only 3 bedrooms. OK.

Have you thought that through

though? Don’t confuse need with

want. You may have 3 kids and

need that 4th bedroom or you

may want that 4th bedroom to

use as only as an office. Could

you use the den or basement for

your office? So don’t necessarily

eliminate 3 bedroom homes from

your search. Most importantly,

figure this out before you start

looking. When deciding on

which home to buy, establishing

your “criteria” early on will save

time shopping for inappropriate

homes.

What About the Seller?

You are the buyer so who

cares what the seller wants,

right? Wrong. We are in a very

competitive market and as a buyer

you are likely to face competition

for the house you want. If you

want to get to the closing you

should understand the reasons

the seller bought the home and

their reasons for selling. If you

are able to determine this, you’ll

be at a competitive advantage.

Believe it or not some sellers are

less concerned about money than

who is going to own the home

that they built or did a ton of

work on themselves. Maybe the

seller needs a specific closing date

or that they close and rent back

to a buyer for a month until their

home is ready for occupancy.

Sign

Make sure that not only

everything is in writing on your

contract but also that you have

put in everything you want. If

you are expecting the washer

and dryer to stay with the house

take a minute and write it in you

offer…it can’t hurt as the seller has

already included it. Also, make

sure the contingencies you want

are in there too. Planning on a

home inspection? You should

(see next paragraph). Are you

getting a loan? Put a financing

contingency in there as well. This

is where your REALTOR® will

help you.

Home Inspection

In the last paragraph I mentioned

a home inspection contingency.

A seller, although not required by

law but foolish not to, will allow a

home inspection period, typically

10 days. During this period

you should hire a licensed home

inspector go through the home.

Ask

If you are working with an

experienced REALTOR® he/she

should be able to answer all of

your questions; if not they should

know where to find the answers.

Don’t think your question is too

dumb. Ask it. We have probably

heard it before. We don’t expect

you to know how to buy a house

even if you have bought one

before. Ask us. We are happy to

help. Thank you.

ARIES (March 21 to April 19)

This is a good week to look at healing

bruised feelings and re-establishing

weakened relationships. It’s also a

good week to start new projects and

make new job-linked contacts.

TAURUS (April 20 to May 20)

Music and art dominate the week, giving

the sensual Bovine a lot to appreciate.

On the practical side, deal firmly,

but fairly, with those who might try to

undermine your work efforts.

GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Good

feelings continue to flow from your

recent efforts to reconnect with family

and friends. But be ready to defuse

a dispute before it can disrupt all that

peace and harmony.

CANCER (June 21 to July 22) A

practical view of a romanticized situation

could help to clarify some of its

more confusing aspects before you

make a decision that could be tough to

undo later on.

LEO (July 23 to August 22) Pay

more attention to what a recent spate

of workplace criticism might say about

your performance and not what you

think it implies about you personally.

Some flexibility might be called for.

VIRGO (August 23 to September

22) With new information, and new

promises of support (not to mention

growing self-confidence), this could

be a good time to restart a project you

couldn’t quite handle before.

Stop by today

and join our new

Rewards

Program!

LIBRA (September 23 to October 22)

Before you decide to close down a problem-loaded

project and make a fresh

start with someone else, try once more

to reach a compromise with your balky

partner. He or she might surprise you.

SCORPIO (October 23 to November

21) While you continue earning

points for your sharp negotiating

skills, be alert for an attempt to undercut

your efforts. You’ll need to provide

solid facts and figures to stay in

the game.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to

December 21) A minor health problem

might cause you to ease up on

your usually busy schedule. But you’ll

soon be back in the saddle and ready

to pick up the reins and charge ahead.

CAPRICORN (December 22 to

January 19) The adventurous Sea Goat

might be eager to take on a new challenge.

But before you do, you might

want to take some time to check out

previously overlooked factors.

AQUARIUS (January 20 to February

18) A feeling of being overwhelmed

by all that you have to do

can be eased by setting priorities. Deal

with the most urgent and time-sensitive

situations first, and then work

down the line.

PISCES (February 19 to March

20) Creating a calm, peaceful place

for yourself in the middle of a roiling

emotional whirlpool this week starts

when you, and no one else, decide how

to make decisions about your life.

BORN THIS WEEK: Your determination

to stick with your principles

wins the admiration of everyone who

knows you.

Health & Wellness

BY J. PETER ST. CLAIR, DMD

In an online report I recently

read by Men’s Health Magazine,

they listed 9 “healthy” habits that

they claim are a waste of time.

Three of them had to do with oral

health. Let’s take a look.

The first on the waste of time

list was to see your dentist twice

per year. I have seen this reported

somewhere else in the media

recently. According to Men’s

Health, close to 30 studies have

apparently found no conclusive

evidence supporting a need to see

a dentist every 6 months. They

went on to say, “If your teeth and

gums are healthy, once per year

is enough to catch developing

problems.”

I absolutely agree. There are

definitely people who only need

to see a dentist/hygienist once

per year. Most dentists use a

classification system to rate a

patient’s periodontal (gum) health.

Type I patients are the ones that

only need to see a dentist once per

year. They are healthy, they have

good homecare habits and are

low risk for disease. In the average

dental practice, I would say this is

about 10-15% of the population.

Type II patients are those with

gingivitis and should be seen

Brighter Smiles...

twice per year. This group makes

up about 50% of the typical

dental patient population. Many

of these patients could move into

the Type I group if they had better

homecare habits and technique.

Type III & IV patients are

the remaining 30-35% of the

population who should be seen

every 3 or 4 months, and in

some cases even more frequently.

Because of genetics and/or bad

habits, this group has active disease

and is at high-risk for problems.

Let’s also not forget the other

50% of the population who don’t

even visit a dentist once per year.

While I think there are people who

can be healthy and see a dentist

once per year, it is irresponsible

to make it seem that it pertains to

everyone. The only one who can

determine how healthy you are is

your dentist. It should be up to

you and the dentist you trust.

The #7 waste of time reported

was to use a hard toothbrush.

According to the report, a soft

one cleans your teeth just as well

and is less damaging to your teeth

and gums. This is old news and is

true.

The next one shocked me. The

#8 waste of time – brushing and

flossing twice per day. According

to Men’s Health, everyone only

needs to visit the dentist once

per year and brush and floss one

time per day. They recommend

brushing for at least 2 minutes

before you go to bed and flossing

one time per day. They also

BAD INFO

mentioned that people who did

not floss frequently (whatever

that means) are 3 times more

likely to develop stomach cancer.

I am assuming the author is

relating lack of flossing to getting

periodontal (gum) disease. More

recent research is showing that,

“Risk factors for precancerous

lesions and gastric cancer are

being identified, one of which

may be periodontal disease”.

Although lack of flossing does not

automatically cause gum disease,

poor oral health is clearly a risk

factor for other health problems.

Here’s the bottom line:

1. Establish a relationship with

a dentist you are comfortable

with and trust. Determine with

that person how frequently

you should be seen.

2. Use a good quality soft electric

toothbrush. Get instructions

on proper use from your

hygienist.

3. Brush at least twice per day,

preferably at least 30 minutes

after meals. Floss at night

before you brush.

It is as simple as that.

dental practice in Rowley and

Newburyport dedicated to healthcentered

family dentistry. If there

Medicare Scammed Out of $1.7 Billion

Scammers have billed Medicare

$1.7 billion in phony invoices for

selling hundreds of thousands of us

pieces of medical equipment we don’t

need. Federal agencies have brought

charges for peddling unnecessary

braces for knee, wrist, shoulder and

back.

How did this happen? We answered

TV and radio ads aimed at Medicare

beneficiaries. By calling them for

more information, we were offered

“free” devices we didn’t need.

Senior Scene

Per the Department of Justice news

release, medical doctors were bribed

into prescribing the devices to patients

they had never even met or those

they’d only talked to via brief phone

conversations. Once we gave them

our Medicare numbers and personal

information, our calls would be

switched to a foreign call center, and

they were then able to bill Medicare.

It was a complicated scam, involving

doctors, company executives, call

centers, 130 companies, bribery,

kickbacks and more.

Scary, isn’t it?

If you see an ad on TV about

free medical equipment you can get

because you’re on Medicare, write

down the information and give it to

your doctor. Ask whether that device

or service is something you really

need. If it is, and if it’s something

approved by Medicare, you can still

get it for free. In fact, whether it’s for

free medical equipment, or insurance

coverage, or for any reason, if it’s

related to Medicare, all the scammers

really want is your Medicare number.

In other Medicare scams, they’ll

call you and say they need to update

your information, including your

bank account number where your

Social Security is deposited. Whether

they use sympathy, offers of help or

aggressive tactics ... don’t let it fool

you. Hang up.

Remember, once the scammers

have your Medicare card number,

they can use it again and again.
