Cedar Grove Cemetery as he places flags at the graves of veterans in preparation

for Memorial Day.

PEABODY — The city

kicked off its 2021 Memorial

Day observances last Saturday

with the annual flagging

of veterans’ graves at city

cemeteries.

Placing American flags on

the graves is a long-standing

tradition to preserve and honor

the memory of deceased veterans

who have served their

country honorably. American

flags are placed on the left side

of veterans’ graves in respect

of their dignity.

It’s waste not want not on this farm

By Tréa Lavery

PEABODY — Tucked behind

the homes and businesses

on a busy Lynn Street lie two

acres of ground that feed people

throughout the community.

These two acres are tended by

the volunteers that run Newhall

Fields Community Farm

(NFCF), a nonprofit that focuses

on environmental education and

addressing food insecurity.

“We’re really grateful to

have the opportunity to grow

highly-nutritious food using organic

agricultural practices for

and with our community,” said

Jeannette McGinn, NFCF’s

director and board president.

“And at the same time, we can

have people come enjoy this

great space, because it’s for

everybody.”

PEABODY — The next step in the

city’s North River Resiliency, Canal Wall,

and Riverwalk Project takes place tonight

from 6:30-7:30 p.m. with a virtual discussion

on the project’s progress.

Mayor Edward Bettencourt Jr., Assistant

Director of Planning Brendan Callahan,

and Weston and Sampson Engineers, Inc.

will present a brief project recap, an update

on the overall site plans, the design

of 24 Caller St., and next steps.

More information on the meeting is available

at tinyurl.com/RiverwalkWebinar2.

Following the presentation, residents

will have an opportunity to participate in

a question-and-answer segment with planners

so that the park can better reflect the

interests of the community.

The presentation has been long in

the making after the city was awarded

its first Municipal Vulnerability

Preparedness (MVP) Action Grant by

the Massachusetts Executive Office of

Energy & Environmental Affairs (EEA).

It’s waste not want not on this farm

FARM

FROM PAGE 1

The farm is part of a 17-

acre property originally owned

and operated by the Newhall

family for more than 100 years;

in 2007, it was sold to the city.

Now, the property is home to

both Tillie’s Farm Stand and

NFCF — which leases its portion

of the land — and conservation

land.

NCFC began in 2017 when

the city took full management

of the land, looking for community

uses. McGinn and other

community members got involved,

attending meetings in

cafes and the library to discuss

how best to use the land. Along

with NFCF’s herbalist and

board member Rebecca Ingalls,

they came up with the idea for

an herb garden to support community

education, and the city

granted them a small plot on the

property to start it.

In 2019, NFCF was founded

as a nonprofit, and that year,

they expanded their plot to plant

vegetables. The first year, they

were able to harvest more than

2,000 pounds of food with the

help of more than 300 volunteers.

Around 80 percent of the

food harvested at the farm is donated

to the Haven from Hunger

food pantry at Peabody’s

Citizens Inn.

explained that the farm uses all

organic practices to grow its

crops, which means that they

use no pesticides or chemicals.

“Organic is a very principled

way of farming that involves

working with nature and not

trying to trick or outsmart her,”

Kiefer said.

That means that they use

special tarps to keep out bugs,

bring in compost for fertilizer

and even use spent grain — donated

by brewers at the nearby

Granite Coast Brewing — as

mulch to keep moisture in the

soil. They also use cover crops

like winter rye to keep nutrients

in the soil and prevent erosion

during the cold months, and are

working toward a no-till model

where seeds are sown directly

on top of the remains of the

cover crops.

All of that work is done by

the farm’s volunteers. Some

of those workers come from

community programs, like

YouthBuild at North Shore

Community Development

Coalition, and others are just

interested neighbors. While the

volunteer workforce dropped

significantly during the

COVID-19 pandemic, McGinn

said, they also began a program

for high-school students

who volunteer at the farm on

Saturdays.

“The first group that signed

up re-signed up in the spring.

They created their own cohort,”

“Thanks to Adult

Foster Care of the

North Shore, mom

and I share a full

life together.”

Delores

“Thanks to Adult Foster

Care of the North Shore,

mom and I share a

full life together.”

Terry, Caregiver to

Mother Delores

McGinn said. “They had this

common interest in the farm

and a desire to learn.”

More of the farm’s staff, even

those who weren’t normally as

hands-on, got involved, too.

Emily Cooper, NFCF’s community

outreach and special

events coordinator, said that she

learned a lot from getting closer

to the soil out of necessity, and

social media manager Daybar

Bugler said that working on

the farm helped her realize how

beneficial it was for her and

others’ mental health.

“With everything going on

in 2020, it became clear how

important it was,” Bugler

said. “This is a wellness zone.

Getting my hands in the dirt

with people was so helpful.”

The farm is starting to see

greens come up, including

garlic, onions, lettuce, peas,

cabbage and plenty of herbs.

Their outreach programs are

blooming, too: The farm was

just certified to accept SNAP,

they are expanding into the

wholesale market for their

products and this year, for the

first time, they will be selling

produce at Tillie’s Farm Stand.

“We want this food to be

going to people who need it,

and who wouldn’t otherwise

be eating fresh, nutrient-rich

food,” Kiefer said.

FROM PAGE 1

That grant allowed the city to

start phase I of the project which

involved exploring options to

improve the flood resiliency

within the North River Corridor,

address site contamination from

historic use as a tannery district

and evaluate an open space resource

and Riverwalk that will

enhance public access and vitality

of the area.

In 2019, additional MVP

funding was awarded and development

began along with

permitting the preliminary design

concepts of the south bank

stabilization and Riverwalk of

the Resilient North River Canal

Phase II has included the

preparation of plans for the

“It’s an extremely solemn, but

nonetheless gratifying day to

see so many veterans come out

and honor their fellow veterans

year after year,” said Peabody

Veterans Services Director

Steve Patten. “All these deceased

veterans who gave service

to their country and died

want to be remembered and

appreciated. To see our aging

veterans do this in their honor is

and

inspiring and emotional.”

Peabody’s Memorial Day

observance begins at 10 a.m.

with a service at Cedar Grove

Cemetery. A service at City Hall

follows at 11:30 a.m.

Approximately 30 people

representing 10 local veterans

groups participated, canvassing

approximately 30 Peabody

cemeteries and placing more

than 5,000 flags in the ground.

Nearly 3,500 flags alone

were placed at Cedar Grove

Cemetery, St. Mary’s Cemetery,

Harmony Grove Cemetery and

Oak Grove Cemetery.

Patten said the Peabody

Historical Society and Museum,

under the direction of former

Mayor Michael Bonfanti, handled

most of the small-cemetery

flagging. The Jewish

War Veterans flagged another

10 cemeteries. The other nine

veterans groups — which include

the American Legion,

the Portugese-American War

Veterans, the Polish Legion

of American Veterans, the

Fleet Reserve Association,

the Marine Corps League, the

Yankee Division, the Second

Corps of Cadets, the Disabled

American Veterans and the

Veterans of Foreign Wars —

placed flags at Cedar Grove,

Harmony Grove, St. Mary’s and

Oak Grove.

Patten said the city isn’t done

planting flags yet and has plans

to plant flags at Puritan Lawn

Cemetery on May 29.

“We’ve been flagging for

decades, long before I’ve been

around, but up until a few years

ago we only planted flags at

city cemeteries, not private

ones, so we never did anything

at Puritan Lawn,” Patten said.

“That’s a massive place both in

terms of the number of graves

and the space, so we’ll need a

good number of volunteers for

that.”

Patten said he expects to

enlist the services of the Boy

Scouts and members of the high

school National Honor Society

again this year. He expects that

3,000 flags will be planted.

“The high school kids like to

come out and get some community

service, so we hope to rely

on everyone again this year to

scatter in all directions,” Patten

said.

With the exception of Puritan

Lawn, the flags will remain in

place through Veterans Day.

“We need to remove them immediately

so they can mow and

perform other necessary maintenance,”

said Patten, a Bronze

Star recipient who served two

tours of duty totaling 18 months

in Afghanistan with the the 11th

Brigade Combat Division, 82nd

Airborne Division.

The flagging comes on the

heels of the installation of a new

World War II memorial at City

Hall. The memorial had been

destroyed in November when

strong winds toppled the city’s

Christmas tree, which landed on

top of the memorial, smashing

it into multiple pieces.

“It’s been a good week for

veterans, between planting all

of their flags to remember their

fallen comrades and the new

bell being installed, so they are

ready to go on Memorial Day,”

Patten said. “These veterans

are so tough. Nothing stops

them. Saturday, they were hot

and tired. Their backs and arms

hurt but they were relentless

even though they are out there

for five to six hours. It’s truly

inspirational.”

PEABODY — The City

Clerk's office provides access

to indexes, records and information

about genealogy from

when Peabody was established

as a town in 1868, and as a city

in 1916.

Prior to COVID-19, people

could come into the clerk’s office

to request information or

look through a variety of handwritten

documents, books and

records that contain information

about Peabody residents.

City Clerk Allyson Danforth

said the office doesn’t perform

an entire history and research

on request, but offers documents,

books and information

contained in its “vault” so people

can search on their own. If

HOW THEY DO IT

City Hall has a

portal into the past

Have a story to share?

Need a question answered?

contactus@essexmedia.group

someone wants a city document

certified, Danforth said the office

will handle the request.

“We have physical, handwritten

documents and books

from way back when that people

can go through,” Danforth

said. “It’s all in our vault, and

we allow people to come in and

access the books that way.”

Before Peabody became established

as a town, it was part

of South Danvers, so Danforth

said sometimes people will look

through the Peabody records

but may have to go to Danvers

if they are in search of something

from before 1916.

She also said people will call

the clerk’s office in search of

genealogy information if they

live far away and need some

quick information.

“Especially if people aren’t

from the area, or if they’re

coming back to the area then

suddenly they’re on a genealogy

search as a part of their vacation,”

Danforth said. “So it’s

kind of fun to see people come

in from different parts of the

country and look things up like

that.”

The records can show what

great-grandparents did for a living

or other “tidbits” that can be

found in the records, Danforth

said.

During the majority of the

pandemic, the clerk’s office had

been closed, and Danforth said

nobody has been able to come

in to do research. Now the

clerk’s office is fully open and

Danforth said people can come

in and peruse through history as

they please.

PEABODY — The City

of Peabody has been named a

2020 Tree City USA community

by the Arbor Day Foundation

for its commitment to urban forestry.

This is the 20th year that

Peabody has earned the national

honor from the Arbor Day

Foundation, the nation’s largest

nonprofit organization dedicated

to planting trees.

“Planting and caring for

trees is among the most important

things we can do to benefit

current and future generations,”

Mayor Edward A. Bettencourt

Jr. said. “We all know that trees

beautify the landscape and provide

shade for our homes, but

they also offer countless environmental,

economic and social

benefits.”

There are four standards that

must be achieved in order to

become a Tree City USA community.

They must have a tree

board or department, a tree-care

ordinance, a community forestry

program with annual expenditures

of at least $2 per capita,

and an Arbor Day observance

and proclamation.

Peabody Parks, Recreation

and Forestry Director Jennifer

Davis said the city was unable

to host its annual Arbor Day

program, which is traditionally

held on the last Friday of April,

because of the pandemic. She

said normally the city purchases

up to 1,200 saplings every year,

which are distributed to city

schools for planting. This year,

however, that program was canceled,

but the city nonetheless

plans to resume planting new

trees at several parks.

"Last year, we simply

couldn't get the trees planted, so

we decided to scale down some

of the activities we normally do

to celebrate Arbor Day," Davis

said. "We are committed to

continuing the tradition of our

forestry program. Last year was

tough with schools being closed,

so we couldn't do what we have

been doing so successfully for

the last 20-30 years, and it's really

fun to see these saplings planted

by students grow into mature

trees, which benefit everyone in

the community."

Seniors News

May is Older Americans Month

Carol McMahon

For the Weekly News

PEABODY — In tough

times, communities find

strength in people — and people

find strength in their communities.

In the past year, we’ve seen

this time and again in Peabody

as friends, neighbors, and businesses

have found new ways to

support each other.

In our community, older

adults are a key source of this

strength. Through their experiences,

successes, and difficulties,

they have built resilience

that helps them to face new

challenges.

When communities tap into

this, they become stronger too.

Each May, the Administration

for Community Living leads

the celebration of Older Americans

Month (OAM). This

year’s theme is Communities

of Strength, recognizing the

important role older adults play

in fostering the connection and

engagement that build strong,

resilient communities.

Strength is built and shown

not only by bold acts, but also

small ones of day-to-day life

— a conversation shared with

a friend, working in the garden,

trying a new recipe, or taking

time for a cup of tea on a busy

day. And when we share these

activities with others — even

virtually or by telling about the

experience later — we help them

build resilience too.

This year, the Peabody Senior

Center will celebrate Older

Americans Month by encouraging

community members to

share their experiences. Together,

we can find strength — and

create a stronger future.

Here are some ways to share

and connect:

Look for joy in the everyday:

Celebrate small moments and

ordinary pleasures by taking

time to recognize them. Start

a gratitude journal and share it

with others via social media, or

call a friend or family member to

share a happy moment or to say

thank you.

Reach out to neighbors: Even

if you can’t get together in person

right now, you can still connect

with your neighbors. Leave

a small gift on their doorstep, offer

to help with outdoor chores,

or deliver a home-cooked meal.

Build new skills: Learning

something new allows us to

practice overcoming challenges.

Take an art course online or

try a socially distanced outdoor

movement class to enjoy learning

with others in your community.

Have a skill to share? Find

an opportunity to teach someone,

even casually.

Share your story: There’s a

reason storytelling is a time-honored

activity. Hearing how others

experience the world helps

us grow. Interviewing family,

friends, and neighbors can

open up new conversations and

strengthen our connections.

When people of different

ages, backgrounds, abilities,

and talents share experiences —

through action, story, or service

— we help build strong communities.

And that’s something to

celebrate!

The Peabody Council on

Aging recently purchased a tent

and is awaiting its arrival. We

plan to schedule outdoor classes

such as line dancing, Zumba and

some chair yoga under the new

tent.

We are also planning to have

some classes meet on-site as

well.

We will gradually work toward

opening up some areas of

the senior center and eventually

will offer lunch here again. Until

then, we have decided to continue

our frozen meals program. At

the present time, our large dining

room and stage area is being

used as a vaccination site, which

will continue over the next several

months.

Staff members will be in contact

with the teachers and participants

of many of our classes in

the next few weeks. Per Centers

for Disease Control and Prevention

guidelines, we will require

participants to fill out paperwork

with their contact information

in case there is a need for our

Health Department to do contact

tracing.

Classes will be limited and

registration will be required.

Unfortunately we will be unable

to accommodate drop-in visitors

at this time. You will need to be

given an appointment in order to

attend.

We know this has been a very

difficult time for so many and

we will be adding programs and

services as quickly, but most importantly,

as safely as possible.

Please feel free to call us at any

time at 978-531-2254 for more

information.

Council on Aging administrative

assistant.

Sullivan Tire family expands its Peabody presence

BY ANNE MARIE TOBIN

ITEM STAFF

PEABODY — Sullivan Tire

and Auto Service has opened a

second auto repair shop in Peabody.

With a shop already in the

downtown area on Washington

Street, the new location on Andover

Street (Route 114) will take

over operations of Direct Tire.

Sullivan Tire purchased the business

following the death of Direct

Tire owner Barry Steinberg.

Vice President of Marketing

Paul Sullivan said the transaction

was bittersweet.

"Barry was a great man and

a great advocate for the independent

tire people, and I have the

utmost appreciation for him," Sullivan

said. "This came about due

to the unfortunate circumstances

of his passing. Through it all, his

business remained strong and our

promise is to certainly support his

customers the way he would —

with nothing but the best service."

As part of the acquisition, Sullivan

also has taken over operations

at Direct Tire in Medway,

bringing the total number of Sullivan

shops to 75 throughout Greater

Boston and New England.

Sullivan believes that 99 percent

of Direct's employees will

stay on.

"We're going to treat every one

of our nearly 1,300 employees as

if they were members of the Sullivan

family," he said. "We have

wonderful benefits and also provide

a great opportunity for people

to be trained in auto diagnostics.

"We hope to retain all of the

employees to carry on the tradition

of excellence that Direct customers

and our customers have

come to expect," he said.

According to Sullivan, the pandemic

posed unique challenges

for many independents, especially

when it came to keeping operations

as normal as possible during

the emergency shutdown.

"We were designated as an

essential business and had to be

on call at all times as we service

police, ambulance, medical staff

and state and federal government

agencies, so we stressed to our

employees that we had to continue

allowing the people we serve

to keep roads safe and take care

of the needs of essential workers,"

Sullivan said. "These people were

sacrificing so much, so we took

that as a charge and learned how

important our role in the transportation

industry is."

If there is a silver lining, Sullivan

said, it's being able to focus

on the little things that he believes

are of utmost importance to be

successful.

"It's attention to detail, it's being

able to treat every customer

who walks in the door as the most

important customer. That has allowed

us to continue to provide

expert service during these 14

months that I can only describe as

horrific," Sullivan said. "We constantly

reinforced and reminded

one and all that we need to be good

to one another in order to continue

to do our part. Now, I think people

are still a bit apprehensive, but

there is beginning to be the feeling

that spring is eternal."

Sullivan Tire is no stranger to

Peabody, having had a location

near the site of the Shaw's Supermarket

at the Northshore Mall for

many years before being forced

to shut down in the 1980s due to

redevelopment. Sullivan Tire reopened

on Washington Street in

2009.

Sullivan is "thrilled" to double

Sullivan Tire's presence in Peabody.

"This new location is only

about three miles away, and it's

a little bit different type of shop,

but we're really excited about it,"

said Sullivan. "We have always

enjoyed our relationship with the

Peabody people and those in surrounding

communities. I'm proud

to say Sullivan Tire is entrenched

in the city of Peabody. Our intention

is to take the baton from Barry

and run our leg of the race."

Sullivan Tire is a family-owned-and-operated

business

that has been serving customers

in New England since Bob "The

Chef" Sullivan and his wife, Mary

founded the business in 1955 —

on a dead-end street in Rockland,

as Bob Sullivan & Sons Tire.

Since then, the company has expanded

to 109 total locations (including

distribution centers, commercial

outlets, warehouses and

administrative offices).

"Our motto then and now has

always been the same — treat

everyone, customers and fellow

employees, as you would a member

of your family," said Sullivan,

who regularly appears in company

advertisements surrounded by

his young family members. "My

father felt loyal to his people. It’s

the guiding principle on which

this company is built."

Obituaries

James Michael Sheehan, 76

1945 - 2021

LYNNFIELD - James Michael

Sheehan, age 76, of Lynnfield died

Sunday, May 16 at his residence

surrounded by his loving family after

a short illness and undoubtedly

a broken heart following the loss

of his beloved wife of almost 40

years, Donna.

Born in Malden on January 23,

1945 he was the son of the late

John and Nora (Walsh) Sheehan.

“Jim” was raised in Malden and

was a graduate of Malden Catholic

High School and then went on to

receive his bachelor’s in business

from Boston College. He married

Barbara Clark with whom he had

four children before Barbara died

at a very young age of cancer.

While working in Boston’s leather

district Jim met Donna St. Pierre,

his future bride. In 1992, the two

began their own business, Sheehan

Sales Associates, Inc. where

they successfully trademarked and

patented textiles that are used in

performance products for the footwear

industry. Donna and Jim went

on to have three more Sheehan

children and raised their family of

seven in Lynnfield. Jim was devoted

to his family and loved nothing

more than time spent together. He

was an avid golfer and enjoyed

making trips all over New England

to play different courses. Jim loved

all music and the news, he also

enjoyed watching the local sports

teams, but not more than watching

his children and grandchildren

in their own athletic endeavors.

Together Jim and Donna enjoyed

traveling, most especially to Ireland

to visit family. They shared a

beautiful marriage.

He was the beloved husband

of the late Donna S. (St. Pierre)

Sheehan. He was the loving father

of Kerry A. Connelly and her

husband John of Peabody, Monica

Sullivan and her husband

James of Amesbury, Michael P.

Sheehan and his wife Kathryn of

Rowley, Christopher Sheehan and

his wife Juliana of Brazil, Patrick

J. Sheehan and his wife Brenna

of Topsfield, Kathleen M. Simione

and her husband Joseph of Lynnfield,

and Ryan C. Sheehan and

his wife Amanda of Lynnfield. He

was the brother of John V. Sheehan

of Quincy and Kathleen McKenna

and her husband Harold of

Wakefield. He was the cherished

grandfather of Daniel and Timothy

Connelly, Sam, Will and Owen Sullivan,

Bridget Sheehan, Emilia and

Theodore Sheehan, and Victoria

and Abigail Sheehan. He is also

survived by many loving nieces

and nephews, cousins, and extended

family members.

Service Information: Visitation

BY STEVE KRAUSE

PEABODY — Kristina

Rossignol was at a crossroads

after her freshman year

at Quinnipiac University in

Connecticut.

She’d played sports all

throughout high school, was a

league all-star in softball, and

made it onto the college team as a

walk-on. She even played a little.

But something dogged her.

It wasn’t softball. It was the

days she spent with Tom Gould

at the Carroll School Challenger

Basketball League.

“I was a volunteer there, from

the time I was a kid,” says the

Quinnipiac sophomore. “You

hung around with them. Played

basketball with them. I’d been

going there since fifth grade, and

saw children who had issues. I

liked helping them; that was my

motivation.”

So, she had to make a choice:

play softball or pursue her vocation

as an athletic trainer and a

doctor of physical therapy.

She made it.

Organized softball is in the

rearview mirror, and physical

therapy — with a strong emphasis

on pediatrics — is on the

horizon.

“It was a tough choice to

make,” Rossignol said. “It took

me about three weeks to make it.

And once I did, though, I don’t

regret it. I miss it, but I don’t regret

making it.”

The dual degree of athletic

training with a doctorate in

physical therapy leaves her with

about five more years of school.

Her projected date for completion

of the dual degree is 2026,

but she doesn’t mind.

“I love it,” she said.

She sees her career path as

wandering from time to time

into the realm of occupational

therapy.

“A little bit,” she said. “I have

had injuries in the past, but this

is more. I saw people during

Challenger Basketball who

had trouble walking. Trouble

shooting baskets. I just thought it

would be interesting to see them

get those functions.

“But,” she said, “I like

working with athletes too.”

With her goals so clearly laid

out for her, getting in the right

clinical rotation became more

important than softball.

“I was able to help out with

the team, but I didn’t want to

make it my No. 1 priority,” she

said.

Still, Rossignol hasn’t completely

deserted sports.

“I also played basketball in

high school, and I’ve kept up

with that, playing intramurals

at school. And I’m part of the

Best Buddies program at school,

STUDENT OF

THE WEEK

where I get to be a buddy to

someone my age, hang out with

them, sit and read a book, stuff

like that.

“Those days with Tom stayed

with me,” she said. “It was such

a young age that it really impacted

me, and made me who I

am.”

Her book-learning is going

well. She got all As and Bs

this semester, and feels she’s

learning what she needs to

learn for career. Rossignol takes

mostly science courses, as they

dovetail with what she does in

her clinicals.

Her main goals in the end are

to be either a pediatric physical

therapist or work with an athletic

team.

“Either way,” she said, “I

think I am headed in the right

direction. Those are two very

rewarding fields, and I think it’s

important to like what you do.

THE MOVE.

Christian Loescher, right, went 2-for-4 with one RBI in a win

over Swampscott Sunday.

Fenwick rallies to take

down Swampscott

BASEBALL

By Mike Alongi

SWAMPSCOTT — The

Bishop Fenwick baseball team

benefited from a combination

of timely hitting and shutout

relief pitching on Sunday afternoon,

rallying from behind for

a 5-4 win over Swampscott in a

non-conference battle at Forest

Avenue Park. The key inning

for Fenwick was the top of

the fifth, where the Crusaders

notched three runs to jump

ahead for good.

“Our hitting isn’t quite

where we want it to be, but

when we’re hitting the ball to

right-center field then we’re

doing something right,” said

Fenwick coach Russ Steeves.

“We were hitting a lot of balls

to right-center (Sunday). Our

approach was much better.”

Fenwick had a number

of key offensive contributors

in the win, with Gianni

Mercurio (2-for-4, double),

Christian Loescher (2-for-4),

Chris Faraca (2-for-4) and

Tucker Destino (2-for-3) each

notching one RBI. Mike Faragi

went 3-for-4 with two doubles

in the win.

On the mound, Anthony

Marino earned the win in relief

after tossing 3 1/3 innings of

scoreless, one-hit baseball.

“Anthony came up big for

us and really shut them down

in the final few innings,” said

Steeves. “He was fresh and

rested, and he came in to get

the job done.”

Brendan Bloom went the

first four innings for the no-decision,

allowing four runs on

five hits with two strikeouts.

On the Swampscott side,

Alex Greenfield led the way

after going 2-for-3 with a

double and two RBI. Connor

Correnti went 2-for-4 with a

double and one RBI, while

Matthew McIntire went 1-for-3

with one RBI.

Joseph Ford took the loss on

the mound in relief, allowing

three runs on six hits in three

innings of work. John Cuttle

got the start and the no-decision

for the Big Blue, going

four innings and allowing

two runs on six hits with five

strikeouts.

“You hate being on the back

end of a one-run game, but

we battled the whole way,”

said Swampscott coach Joe

Caponigro. “We did a lot of

good things out there, and

hopefully we can take advantage

of our opportunities

and play some good baseball

moving forward.”

The Crusaders got things

going right away, striking

in the top of the first inning.

Scott Emerson got on base to

lead off, and after a groundout

moved him over to second

base, Mercuiro stepped into the

box and laced an RBI double to

put Fenwick up 1-0.

The Crusaders added another

run in the second inning,

moving a runner to third base

before scoring on a fielder’s

choice.

Swampscott finally got on

the board in the bottom of the

third thanks to an RBI single

from Correnti to make it 2-1,

but the big inning for the Big

Blue came in the bottom of the

fourth.

McIntire tied things up at

2-2 with an RBI single up the

middle, then Jason Bouffard

singled to put runners on

first and second. Two batters

later, Greenfield stepped in

and launched a deep two-run

double to make it 4-2 Big Blue.

The lead didn’t last long.

In the top of the fifth,

Fenwick got runners on first

and second and then started

hitting. Loescher and Faraca

notched back-to-back RBI singles

to tie the score back up

at 4-4, then Destino put the

Crusaders ahead 5-4 on an RBI

double.

Marino took it from there,

shutting down the Big Blue

bats over their final three atbats

of the game.

Bishop Fenwick’s Liam Hill scored five goals in a win over Matignon Monday afternoon.

Fenwick takes down Matignon

for first win of the season

BOYS LACROSSE

By Daniel Kane

PEABODY — The Bishop

Fenwick boys lacrosse team

rode a five-goal performance

from Liam Hill to its first win of

the season Monday, topping visiting

Matignon 8-6 at Donaldson

Stadium.

“Liam came in last year as

a transfer from Governor’s

Academy,” Fenwick coach

Steve Driscoll said. “He’s really

stepped into the role of being a

leader on this team. He’s especially

helping with our young

attackmen. We’re starting a

freshman and a sophomore with

him, so it’s crucial for him to

be a leader. He produces and

teaches these kids how to play

lacrosse.”

Nick Sasso, Aiden Anthony

and Ryan McGann each had

one goal in the win. Sasso actually

spent most of the game anchoring

Fenwick’s defense along

with Nick Wesley and Liam

Foley. The group shut down

Matignon in the fourth quarter

thanks to some solid late play

from goalie George Kostolias.

“In that fourth quarter, the defense

was great,” Driscoll said.

“It’s another brand-new group.

Liam Foley was a captain of

the soccer team this fall. He’s

never picked up a lacrosse stick

before in his life. He stepped

right in, has started every game

and played almost every single

minute. Nick Sasso played attack

as a sophomore, wanted

to get on the field this year and

grabbed the stick. And Nick

Wesley has been an anchor in

front of George.”

The Crusaders jumped right

out front early thanks to two

quick goals from Hill and another

from Sasso to go ahead

3-0.

But Matignon clawed back

into things in the second quarter

with a pair of goals of its own

despite being a man down after a

penalty. Another goal from Hill

gave Fenwick a cushion, but

Matignon tied things up at 4-4

before the half.

Things went back-and-forth

for a stretch in the third quarter,

but another Hill tally and a

hard-fought score by Anthony

put Fenwick ahead 7-5 midway

through the quarter.

With 32 seconds to play in

the third, Matignon scored again

to make it a one-goal game and

looked poised to make another

comeback, but Fenwick shut the

door.

Hill’s fifth goal put the

Crusaders up 8-6 and Kostolias

did the rest, with a few late

saves to lead Fenwick to its first

Catholic Central League victory

of the year.

“Games like this are huge,”

Driscoll said. “We have to be

able to learn from game-like

situations. We’re definitely in

the process of getting back into

things, replenishing and rebuilding.

We’re getting young

guys a ton of runs, which has

been awesome. We definitely

graduated some guys from last

year so it’s a really big learning

process for a lot of these kids.”

Fenwick (1-3) has a day

off before visiting Cardinal

Spellman Wednesday (4).

“It’s nice to get into a groove

here,” Driscoll said. “With this

year, it’s recovery days in between

games, not really practice.

We’ll make sure all our bumps

and bruises are taken care of so

we’re ready to go next game.”

Peabody’s Amber Kiricoples had five goals and three assists in a loss to Swampscott Thursday

afternoon.

Peabody comes up just short

against NEC foe Swampscott

GIRLS LACROSSE

By Mike Alongi

SWAMPSCOTT — Despite

giving up a five-goal lead

over the final 15 minutes of

the game, the Swampscott

girls lacrosse team ended up

scoring two goals in the final

six minutes to survive with an

11-10 win over Northeastern

Conference foe Peabody at

Blocksidge Field Thursday

afternoon.

“Every year when we play

Peabody, both games are like

this,” said Swampscott coach

Jillian Robinson. “That’s a

strong, smart team and every

year they come to play. It’s always

a mental test as much as

a physical one, and our girls

were able to come out with a

well-deserved win.”

Broghan Laundry led the offensive

charge for Swampscott

with five goals and one assist,

while Elizabeth Green had two

goals and one assist. Scarlett

Ciciotti scored two goals,

while Harper Clopton and

Reese Robertson each scored

one goal.

For Peabody, Amber

Kiricoples (five goals, three

assists) and Hailie Lomasney

(five goals, two assists) combined

to score all the goals

for the Tanners. Hailey Baker

added three assists in the loss,

while Emily McDonough had

one assist.

“I think we were rushing

things in the first half and that

got us behind, but in the second

half we were winning it 7-1 at

one point,” said Peabody coach

Dennis Desroches. “But then

we had a big turnover and a

draw loss, and they got right

back in it. The turnovers got to

us. Swampscott is an excellent

attack team, and you can’t give

them the ball like that.”

While the score may have

been 11-10 at the final buzzer,

both coaches agreed that defense

and goaltending were

key for both sides in the game.

Swampscott goalie Sasha

Divall had 13 saves for the

Big Blue, while Olivia Lavalle

made 18 saves for the Tanners.

“Sasha has come a long way

for us in the three years she’s

been here,” said Robinson.

“This is her first year starting

varsity and she’s stepped up

big. And I can’t say enough

about our defense. Dennis is a

smart coach and they were able

to break down our zone, but

the girls were able to switch to

man-to-man over the final minutes

to shut them down.”

“We played some great

defense tonight and Olivia

Lavalle shut the door on some

big shots,” said Desroches.

“Those saves allowed us to get

back going the other way, and

that was key.”

It was an up and down

game for both teams. Peabody

got things started about five

minutes into the game, with

Kiricoples scoring an unassisted

goal to give the Tanners

a 1-0 lead.

Swampscott answered back

a little more than a minute later

on a goal from Laundry, and

the Big Blue went on to rattle

off four more goals in a row to

jump out to a 5-1 lead early in

the second quarter.

Peabody responded with two

goals from Lomasney over the

final 10 minutes of the half,

but the Big Blue got two goals

from Robertson and one more

from Ciciotti to take an 8-3

lead into the halftime break.

Peabody came out and scored

the first goal of the second

half thanks to Kiricoples, but

Swampscott answered back

on a goal from Laundry a few

minutes later.

Then, things flipped.

Trailing 9-4 with five minutes

left in the third, Peabody

went on a 6-0 run over the next

nine minutes of game time to

grab a 10-9 lead — its first lead

since the opening minutes of

the game.

Unfortunately for the

Tanners, things stalled from

there. A few costly turnovers

led to scoring chances for

Swampscott, and the Big Blue

didn’t disappoint. Green tied

the game up at 10-10 on a

goal with 6:18 to play before

Clopton scored the eventual

game-winning goal with 5:10

to go in the game.

Tanners hang on

to beat Beverly

BASEBALL

By Mike Alongi

PEABODY — Thanks to a

great throw from Tanners left

fielder Jacob Palharas to gun

down the tying run on a double

play in the top of the seventh

inning, the Peabody baseball

team hung on to take down

Northeastern Conference foe

Beverly by a score of 6-5 at

Peabody Veterans Memorial

High School Wednesday

afternoon.

On the offensive side of

things, Juan Tolentino and

Brendan Smith each contributed

two RBI for the Tanners.

Peabody’s Jacob

Palharas made the

game-clinching

catch to take down

Beverly Wednesday

at home.

Joey Raymond added a double

and one RBI, while Ryan

Knight also had one RBI.

Justin Powers earned the

win on the mound for Peabody,

tossing six innings and allowing

four runs. Evan DeLillo

earned the save.

The Tanners held a 5-0 lead

in the top of the fifth and looked

to be cruising to victory, but

Beverly battled back with five

runs in the final two innings.

The Panthers even loaded the

bases in the top of the seventh

before Palharas ended

the game when he caught a fly

ball and threw out the tagging

runner at home.

Good times

brewing at

Granite Coast

By Tréa Lavery

PEABODY — Jeff Marquis

and Rob Dunn have been

brewing beer together for

more than 10 years, ever since

a friend purchased a Groupon

from a Danvers homebrew

supply store.

They started out in Dunn’s

kitchen, making a few batches

at a time. When Dunn’s wife

became pregnant with their first

child, they moved everything

out to Marquis’ single-car garage,

installing an electrical

system and plenty of other

equipment to turn it into a single-barrel

brew house.

In just a couple of weeks, the

lifelong friends will celebrate

two years since they officially

opened their own brewery,

downtown Peabody’s Granite

Coast Brewing.

“We saw this space after

they gutted it from a longterm

renter, so we walked into

a blank canvas,” said Dunn.

“Everything we could do ourselves,

we did.”

Dunn isn’t exaggerating.

Everything from laying new

floorboards, painting, drywall,

building furniture and retiling

the bathrooms was done by

friends, family, and Dunn and

Marquis themselves.

They’ve been open for almost

two years, but their employee

roster still includes friends who

have helped them along the way

— even the woman who originally

purchased the Groupon,

Amy Luckiewicz, now serves

as the company’s marketing and

events manager.

The brewery is known for

its wide variety of beer styles,

with a range of lagers, IPAs,

kolsches, sours, wheat beers,

shandies, porters and more always

on draft, and new brews

getting tapped all the time.

“The beer world has such a

variety of styles, and that’s the

beauty of our model,” Dunn

said, explaining that they never

want a customer to feel like all

of their options taste the same.

“You can introduce people to

new styles.”

Ten months after Granite

Coast’s May 2019 opening, the

COVID-19 pandemic shut the

company down. While Marquis

and Dunn were able to offer

to-go and delivery options, their

events and everyday customer

interactions were put on hold.

They quickly pivoted by

starting to run online events

like trivia nights, Dungeons

& Dragons campaigns,

Scattergories and Jeopardy.

Their popular monthly trivia

nights have raised money for

causes like Newhall Fields

Community Farm and Last

Hope K9 Rescue.

“The online events were never

about making money,” Marquis

said. “It was about maintaining

clientele and helping them

maintain their sanity.”

Marquis said that these events

even helped them expand their

following, with many of their

fans stopping into the taproom

for the first time after they

reopened.

In addition to their online

events, the brewery regularly

hosts local food vendors so that

customers coming in for a beer

can also get something to eat and

abide by the state’s COVID-19

protocols for restaurants.

While the requirement that

customers purchase food will

be lifted by Massachusetts at

the end of the month, Granite

Coast will continue to partner

with local food vendors to offer

meals.

Other breweries have been

good partners as well. One

larger local brewery offered

up an unused brewhouse to let

Granite Coast and other companies

can their beers for distribution,

something that they had

never been able to do before.

“I’ve been amazed at how

supportive the brewing industry

is of each other,” Luckiewicz

said. “I see the reach-out. It’s

really nice to see.”

Meanwhile, Granite Coast

regulars have been slowly

coming back. While Marquis

and Dunn said that their patronage

comes and goes on any

given day, the company’s dedication

to strict COVID protocols

and transparency — along

with their community-oriented

events and desire to be a downtown

hub of activity — has kept

their customers loyal.

“We try to make sure this

place is a welcoming environment

to everybody,” Dunn

said. “People say ‘I’ve lived in

Peabody my whole life, and it’s

good to see things happening

downtown again.’”
