What can you do to fight

climate change?

By Stewart Lytle, Reporter

Wednesday, November 18, 2020 Vol. 16, No. 56

REGIONAL – Most discussions about

Climate Change and Global Warning involve

huge, expensive projects like windmill

and solar farms, quelling raging fires

in California and the Amazon, or negotiating

with China and Europe on pollution

emissions.

But what can one person do now to

change the direction of the world’s environmental

challenges?

Storm Surge, a North Shore climate

change monitoring organization, asked

that question of Bob Uhlig, a Newburyport

resident and landscape architect, who is

an expert on Green Infrastructure.

At 7 p.m. on Nov. 19, Uhlig is scheduled

to give his answer, telling the audience via

Zoom how individuals and local communities

can fight climate change on smaller,

more affordable scales.

The program is entitled: Climate Change

and the Benefits of Green Infrastructure. It

will explore how low-impact design techniques

like rain gardens, green roofs, permeable

surfaces and vegetated swales contribute

not just to beautiful landscaping,

but also to flood protection, improved water

quality and creating green spaces.

An example of green infrastructure locally

is at Cushing Park in Newburyport

where a rain garden collects runoff water

from the parking lot and thus reduces the

amount of pollution in the water before it

is dumped into the city’s collection system.

Storm water runoff is considered one of

the largest sources of pollution in rivers and

streams.

Another example can be found at the

new Hillside Center for Sustainable Living,

now under construction near the Rte. 1

Rotary. It will feature permeable pavement,

rain gardens and rainwater collection systems

to help mitigate carbon emissions,

while improving landscape design.

Uhlig, a member of the American Society

of Landscape Architects Council of Fellows,

has won awards for his plaza redesign

at the Government Center MBTA Station,

the new Hancock Adams Common in

Quincy and the Senator Joseph Finnegan

Park at Port Norfolk in Dorchester.

He is an active volunteer in Newburyport,

serving on the board of the parks

commission, the community preservation

committee and was the last chair of the

Newburyport Redevelopment Authority.

Bicycle riding

grows in the pandemic

By Stewart Lytle, Reporter

NEWBURYPORT— The number of

bicyclists on the streets and trails seems

to have grown significantly during the

Covid-19 Pandemic.

“You can’t go to clubs. Riding and family

time are about all that’s left,” said Tom

Reinke, the general manager of Riverside

Cycle in the Tannery.

Riverside’s sales have skyrocketed so

much that Rinke cannot keep bicycles in

stock. The shop has a backlog of 500 to

600 bikes, and the estimate from the manufacturers

was that they would meet the

demand by April.

“Now, they are saying it will be June,”

Reinke said.

The shortage, which stems from the

early days of the pandemic, when manufacturing

ground to a stop, “is a total

nuisance,” Reinke said. “It’s insane. Everybody

wants bikes, and I haven’t got

bikes to sell them.”

Actually, Riverside, the only bike shop

in the immediate area, which has been selling

bicycles for 21 years, has only 13 or 14

bikes to sell at the $500 to $800 range. It

has more in the $3,000 price range.

“And those are selling,” Reinke said.

“People are dragging old bikes out of

their basements and asking us if we can

fix them.”

Last spring, nationwide sales of bicycles,

equipment and repair services nearly

doubled compared with the same period

the previous year, according to the N.P.D.

Group, a market research company. Sales

of commuter and fitness bikes in March

increased 66 percent, leisure bikes jumped

121 percent, children’s bikes went up 59

percent and electric bikes rose 85 percent.

With more bikes on the road, the Livable

Tom Reinke at Riverside Cycle.

Streets organization sent out a community

survey, asking who is riding bicycles, where

they are riding and where are they parking

their bikes.

Formed in 2018, Livable Streets is a

group of residents interested in improving

and enhancing the city's network of streets,

sidewalks and paths so that they are safe

and convenient.

“We've had a great response to our survey

of bicycle parking needs in Newburyport,”

wrote Rick Trainor with Livable Streets.

The survey was adopted by the Newburyport

schools, which included it in its newsletter.

Between Sept. 23 and Oct. 11, the organization

received 246 responses to the survey.

“We got a ton in during the first few

days. People were really excited.”

Trainor and his team are preparing a full

report on the needs of the cycling public

for Mayor Donna Holaday and the community

at its December meeting. He hopes

it will become a part of a strategic plan for

cycling that will identify priorities for cyclists

and sources of potential funding to

buy much-needed bike racks.

What can you do to

fight climate change?

Climate Change, from page 1

keep water cleaner, conserve the

ecosystem and provide a wide

array of benefits to people and

wildlife.

It is applied on different scales,

from the house or building level

to the broader landscape. On

the local level, green infrastructure

practices might be planting

trees and building tree boxes and

employing systems that harvest

rainwater. On a larger, community

scale, green infrastructure

preserves forests, flood plains and

wetlands.

Traditional infrastructure is

proving to be inadequate to

handle the increased floods and

droughts caused by global warming.

A new approach is needed,

experts and advocates say, to

protect public health, safety and

quality of life.

Green infrastructure also helps

the economy, according to supporters.

It creates local jobs, improves

community health and

safety, enhances recreation and

nurtures wildlife.

Pleased to be your

local meat shop.

Experts also advocate that an individual

might consider doing one

or more of the following to fight

climate change:

- invest in clean and renewable

energy projects.

- use less energy at home.

- consider converting your

house to renewable energy.

- drive an electric car.

- walk more.

- think before you buy to reduce

waste.

And keep informed. Storm

Surge’s monthly programs provide

information on climate change

and sea level rise.

Storm Surge exists to encourage

and support communities in

preparing for the impacts of sea

level rise, extreme weather and

other effects of long-term climate

change.

The program on green infrastructure

will be available through

a Zoom link that can be found on

the Storm Surge website. stormsurge.org.

Bicycle riding

grows in the pandemic

In the Livable Streets survey,

about 40 percent of the respondents

live in the North End, 20

percent in the South End, 14 percent

downtown and 13 percent in

the West End.

Nearly all of the respondents

said they cycle for recreation, but

almost 40 percent ride their bikes

to shopping, about 20 percent

bike to school, 13 percent to visit

the doctor and other services and

12 percent commute to work on

their bicycle.

Nearly 60 percent of the respondents

said they cycle daily or several

times a week. The most frequent

cyclists are under 18. Almost 100

percent of the under 18 respondents

cycle several times a week.

In general, respondents over 40

years old cycle more frequently

than younger adults.

Parking for bicycles was a major

issue. The places downtown

with the greatest need for more

bicycle parking are the Central

Waterfront and Market Landing

Park, Market Square, the Tannery,

State Street and the library.

Trainor said the lack of bike

racks downtown force riders to

chain their bikes to light poles.

At the library, the bike racks

were moved from the front of the

building to the back. As a result,

riders chain their bikes to the

fence, he said.

Outside downtown, the greatest

needs for additional bike

parking, according to the survey,

are at the middle and high

school, the Market Basket shopping

center, the Pond Street CVS

and the MBTA Commuter Rail

station.

There is a need for more bike

racks in parks including Cashman

Park, Maudslay State Park, Atkinson

Common, Plum Island Point

and Moseley Woods, the survey

said.

Those responding to the survey

also questioned when the

city would replace the bike lanes

on High Street. The restriping,

Trainor said, has been delayed by

litigation between the city and the

striping contractor.

When the striping was poorly

done, the stripes were removed

and have not been replaced.

Time For A New Approach

By J. Peter St. Clair, DMD

Do you have any problems with

dental decay (cavities), gum recession,

and/or dental erosion (the

chemical breakdown of tooth structure)?

These dental issues are complicated

multifactorial diseases of epidemic

levels affecting both children

and adults. A healthy mouth sometimes

requires more than brushing,

flossing, and “fillings”. With current

scientific evidence and new technologies,

patients and practitioners need

to begin to look at these problems

not just from a drilling and filling

approach, but also from a medical

(preventive/therapeutic) approach.

There are over 19,000 different

bacteria that have been found in

mouths and every person has about

1,000 different types. Not all of them

cause decay, but many of them have

also been found to grow on artery

walls. The medical/dental systemic

connection is real and we must pay

more attention to it.

Why the increase in decay? Most of

it has to do with dietary trends. We

snack more, eat more sugar/carbs,

drink more soda, have more gastric

reflux, take more mouth-drying

medications, etc. Dental caries (decay)

is a pH specific disease. The right

bacteria, plus sugar, create acid which

breaks down the enamel of the teeth.

Add an already acidic environment

and it is even worse. In most cases

it is a preventable disease. And don’t

think that just because you don’t eat

“sugar” that you are safe. If you are

getting decay, something is causing

it. The problem is that changing behavior

can be very hard to do.

It is time for the dental professional

to take a different approach

when treating this disease. More focus

needs to be shifted to prevention

of decay rather just treating it. Filling

teeth is treating the result of the

disease, but does nothing to prevent

it. The dentist needs to take a more

active role in assessing individual’s

risk factors. In the dental world this

is referred to as CAMBRA, which

stands for Caries Management By

Risk Assessment.

Based on assessing an individual’s

risk factors, such as quality of home

care, quality of salivary flow, medication

issues, and dietary issues, a

caries-preventive strategy can be

established. There are many new

products on the horizon to help

combat and virtually eliminate this

disease. However, dentists must take

some responsibility and be open to

a different management of this disease.

They must also be able to motivate

people to change habits, which

can be challenging. The bottom line

is that if you want to be decay-free,

you can be.

For those at higher risk, there are

some great products currently available

from a company called Carifree.

Everything from new toothpastes

and gels with ions in them to rebuild

tooth structure, sprays to neutralize

pH, and probiotics are on their way.

Right now you can use things like

the sweetener replacement Xylitol,

which by itself is cavity-fighting, but

also works synergistically with fluoride.

Prescription level toothpastes

are also available, and there is strong

research for the topical application

of fluoride varnish, the same stuff

the kids get, for adults.

The evidence is very clear – this is a

preventable disease. Next time you go

to the dentist and find out you have

a new cavity, stop blaming the dentist

or yourself, and ask to get a specific

protocol for prevention of this disease,

based on your specific risk factors. You

may also want to mention Carifree

products to your dentist in case they

have not heard of this company.

Dr. St. Clair maintains a private

dental practice in Rowley and Newburyport

dedicated to health-centered

family dentistry. If there are certain

Ipswich Police

Officers Receive

Commendations

for Helping to Save

Critically Injured

Man in Boating

Crash

IPSWICH — Two Ipswich Police

Officers were recently recognized for

going above and beyond the call of

duty after an Ipswich man was seriously

injured in a boating incident

this summer.

On Thursday, Nov. 5, Lt. Jonathan

Hubbard and Officer Brian

Murphy were awarded letters of

commendation from Sen. Bruce

Tarr on behalf of the Massachusetts

State Senate and Rep. Brad Hill on

behalf of the Massachusetts House

of Representatives during a private,

socially-distanced ceremony. The

two were honored for their life saving

efforts after responding to a serious

boating crash on July 4.

The pair were on Harbor Patrol

that day when they received a distress

call for an out-of-control boat

and people in the water in the area

of the third creek mooring field.

Four occupants in the boat had fallen

off the vessel when it took a turn

and the boat was circling around

the area, unmanned. The operator

of the boat, a 19-year-old Ipswich

man, was run over by the boat and

suffered serious, life-threatening injuries.

A nearby boater stopped to help

and pulled the injured man from the

water until Lt. Hubbard and Officer

Murphy arrived, which was less

than two minutes after the initial

call came in. The victim was transferred

to the Ipswich Police boat,

where Officer Murphy began performing

life saving treatments to the

man while Lt. Hubbard brought the

Ipswich Police boat to the Ipswich

Bay Yacht Club for further aid. The

patient was transferred to an ambulance

before being flown by medical

helicopter to Lahey Hospital and

Medical Center in Burlington. No

one else was injured in the incident.

“Thank you to Sen. Tarr and

Rep. Hill for recognizing the

quick, heroic actions of these two

officers, which helped the victim

survive what could have been fatal

injuries,” Chief Nikas said.

“The two officers showed great

professionalism and dedication

for the safety of our residents,

and I could not be prouder to recognize

them for their exceptional

work and to have them serve as

members of the Ipswich Police

Department.”

Lt. Hubbard and Officer Murphy

were also given lifesaving

medals by the Ipswich police Department

and received letters of

commendation from the Board

of Selectmen at the Special Town

Meeting in October.

New England families the same fun

experience this year with ice slides,

crawl spaces, caves, and fountains

illuminated at night, but the design

will be enhanced and slightly different.

"We are thrilled to welcome families

back to Ice Castles this winter,"

CEO Kyle Standifird said, "The

safety of our guests and staff has always

been our top priority, and the

new features and guidelines we have

in place this season are designed to

create a safe and magical environment

for everyone."

Ice Castles will operate at a reduced

capacity this season to promote

social distancing. All tunnels

and crawl spaces will be clearly

marked as one-way features to limit

face-to-face exposure with other

guests. In accordance with New

Hampshire mandates, all staff and

guests will be required to wear a

mask or face covering. Additionally,

Ice Castles in New Hampshire will

be introducing new features including

a quarter mile-long winter light

walk in the forest and a sledding hill

to enhance the experience while encouraging

physical distance among

guests.

If weather permits, ice artisans

will begin growing and harvesting

up to 10,000 icicles each day beginning

in late-November to construct

the frozen attraction. The winter

playground is projected to open in

early January 2021.

Amesbury location

AMESBURY - Originally from

Dedham, Dr. Kerry Goyette knew

what she was looking for when she

was house-hunting, falling in-love

with what Amesbury had to offer.

"Amesbury had everything I

wanted when I was looking to buy

a home," said Goyette.

What surprised her was just how

much she clicked with the community,

deciding it wouldn’t just be a

perfect place to go home to after

work; but rather an equally good

place to put down professional roots.

"I love that the people of Amesbury

live their values when it comes

to supporting local," explained

Goyette. "You can feel the energy

behind people and businesses supporting

one another, and I wanted

to be a part of that."

Goyette, a Chiropractor working

out of an office in Manchester, New

Hampshire, decided Market Square

would be the perfect home as she set

up her own office. Initially looking

at a second-floor location within 5

Market Square, she was immediately

attracted to a suddenly-available spot

right in the Amesbury Millyard.

Goyette’s focus and technique has

attracted patients with symptoms

associated with a variety of issues,

including those with autoimmune

dysfunctions, digestive issues, sleep

problems, asthma, vertigo, anxiety/

depression and even ADHD, to

name a few.

"For many of these people,

they’ve tried to address their symptoms

in other ways without success.

I get great results because I focus on

balancing the six functional systems

of the body to restore the body to

its natural default state of health.

Symptoms are physical manifestations

of imbalances in the brain. I

work with my patients to identify

those imbalances, and then stimulate

the appropriate sections of the

spinal cord, which acts as a recharge

and leads to healing and recovery."

The Baker-Polito

Administration

announced a series

of targeted measures

to disrupt trend of

new COVID-19 cases

and hospitalizations.

The Baker-Polito Administration

announced a series of targeted

measures to disrupt the increasing

trend of new COVID-19

cases and hospitalizations.

Governor Charlie Baker announced

these changes at a time

where public health data has indicated

that cases are rising, with cases

up by 278% and hospitalizations up

by 145% since Labor Day. These

measures are meant to disrupt rising

trends now, so the Commonwealth

can keep the economy and schools

open for residents and to prevent

the need to roll back to Phase I or

Phase II of the reopening plan.

All orders and advisories will be

effective Friday, November 6th.

New Orders & Advisories:

Stay At Home Advisory: The Administration

issued a revised Stay At

Home Advisory to ensure residents

avoid unnecessary activities that can

lead to increased COVID-19 transmission.

The revised Stay At Home

Advisory instructs residents to stay

home between 10 PM and 5 AM.

The Advisory allows for activities

such as going to work, running

critical errands to get groceries and

address health needs, and taking a

walk.

Early Closure of Businesses and

Activities: Governor Baker issued

a new executive order that requires

the early closure of certain businesses

and activities each night at 9:30

PM. The 9:30 PM closure requirement

is aligned with the Stay At

Home Advisory and together the

two new initiatives are designed to

further limit activities that could

lead to COVID-19 transmission.

Effective November 6, the following

businesses and activities must

close to the public each day between

the hours of 9:30 PM and 5:00 AM.

• Restaurants (in-person dining

must cease at 9:30 PM, although

takeout and delivery may continue

for food and non-alcoholic beverages,

but not alcohol)

• Liquor stores and other retail establishments

that sell alcohol must

cease alcohol sales at 9:30 PM (but

may continue to sell other products)

• Adult-use marijuana sales must

cease at 9:30 PM (not including

medical marijuana)

• Indoor & outdoor events

• Theaters/movie theaters (including

drive-in movie theaters),

and performance venues (indoor

and outdoor)

• Youth and adult amateur sports

activities

• Golf facilities

• Recreational boating and boating

businesses

• Outdoor recreational experiences

• Casinos and horse tracks/simulcast

facilities

• Driving and flight schools

• Zoos, botanical gardens, wildlife

reserves, nature centers

• Close contact personal services

(such as hair and nail salons)

• Gyms, Fitness Centers and

Health Clubs

• Indoor and outdoor pools

• Museums/cultural & historical

facilities/guided tours

Face Covering Order: Governor

Baker also signed an updated order

related to face-coverings. The

revised order requires all persons

to wear face-coverings in all public

places, even where they are able to

maintain 6 feet of distance from

others. The revised order still allows

for an exception for residents who

cannot wear a face-covering due to

a medical or disabling condition,

but it allows employers to require

employees to provide proof of such

a condition. It also allows schools to

require that students participating

in in-person learning provide proof

of such a medical or disabling condition.

Gatherings Order: Governor

Baker also signed an updated order

restricting gatherings. The new

gatherings order reduces the gathering

size limit for gatherings at private

residences: indoor gatherings at

private residences are limited to 10

people and outdoor gatherings at

private residences are limited to 25

people. The limit on gatherings held

in public spaces and at event venues

(e.g. wedding venues) remains the

same. The new order also requires

that all gatherings (regardless of size

or location) must end and disperse

by 9:30 PM.

The new gatherings order also requires

that organizers of gatherings

report known positive COVID-19

cases to the local health department

in that community and requires organizers

to cooperate with contact

tracing. The gatherings order authorizes

continued enforcement by

local health and police departments

and specifies that fines for violating

the gathering order will be $500 for

each person above the limit at a particular

gathering

Sell During Holidays?

By John McCarthy, Rowley Realty

I know you don’t want to hear

it but the Holiday season is right

around the corner. If you are you

are considering selling your home

during the holidays you have

probably thought this isn’t a great

time to sell. You had tried to get

your home ready for the spring or

even fall market but because you

couldn’t find a roofer, plumber or

just couldn’t get around to making

things perfect you are now looking

at November or December entry

into the market. Well, all is not

lost! The good news is that we are

still in a seller’s market and inventory

is very low! Homes are still

selling with multiple offers well

over the asking price. Don’t beat

yourself up because you couldn’t

get the house ready, it may even

work to your advantage to sell

during the holidays. Here are a

few reasons why:

Interest Rates

Do you really know what interest

rates are going to be in the

Commercial & Residential

Spring? If they go up, a buyer’s

purchasing power goes down.

Interest rates are at historic lows,

hopefully they will be the same in

the spring but you never know.

Motivation

When I first started 15+ years

ago, I complained that a buyer

wanted to see a home we listed

in sub zero weather. My coworker

said this is a good buyer, who

wouldn’t be “just looking” in this

weather. Sure enough this buyer

who came out in awful weather

went ahead and bought the home.

There are plenty of buyers that

are looking online, following the

real estate market every day looking

for the perfect home, and that

home just might be yours. The

bottom line is this; buyers that

come out during holidays are usually

seriously motivated.

Your Home Looks Great

A home that is decorated for

the holidays usually looks fantastic.

Most buyers think of homes

on an emotional basis. When

they see one that is warm, welcoming

and inviting it may stir

them into making an offer.

It’s NOT Spring!

While it is true that in the

spring you may have more buyers,

during the holidays you have

less competition for those buyers.

Don’t overlook the fact that right

now it is a seller’s market. Just

like predicting what will happen

with interest rates we can’t predict

what the market will be like

in the spring.

Time Off to Look

Many people take time off

during the holidays and have

more free time to look at homes.

This goes for internet searches

as well. Make sure your home is

marketed correctly and that it

is on all the most traveled web

sites. It is extremely important

in today’s world since most

home searches begin on the internet.

Taxes

If you are a buyer there are

possible deductions to be had if

you close by December 31, including

points and mortgage interest.

Sellers may also realize a

tax break by closing by the end

of the year.

You Are In Charge

If you refuse a showing request

in the spring, even if your reasoning

is valid, most buyers will

assume you don’t want to sell.

However, if you need to take your

home off the market for a few days

during the holidays most buyers

will understand and accommodate

you.

Selling during the holidays

can be difficult without a doubt.

However if you see a home you

like, need or want to sell, with low

inventory, low interest rates and a

surplus of buyers there is no reason

to think you won’t get your

home sold and make it a Happy

Holiday season!
