Saluting a Commonwealth Heroine

By Anne MArie ToBin


Peabody Health Department Director Sharon

Cameron is being honored for her service to the

city during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Councilor Anne Manning-Martin

running for an eighth term

By Anne MArie ToBin

PEABODY — Anne Manning-Martin, the longest-serving councilor

on Peabody’s City Council, announced Monday she is running

for reelection.

Manning-Martin has served the city as an elected official for 22

years. A fifth-generation “Peabody-ite,” she is currently in her seventh

term as councilor-at-large. Before that, she served eight years on the

School Committee.

Manning-Martin sees herself as a strong advocate for residents’

quality-of-life issues while keeping an eye on taxes. She said her full

record demonstrates her commitment to being a constant voice of

reason on the council.

“I am a strong financial watchdog with a detailed eye on expenditures

and tax rates while balancing the equally-important need to

improve quality of life,” said Manning-Martin. “I feel I consistently

speak with an informed and independent voice guided by principle

and practicality rather than politics.”

Over the years, Manning-Martin has worked to improve the


The Massachusetts Commission on the Status of Women

(MCSW) has recognized Peabody Director of Health and Human

Services Sharon Cameron as a 2021 Commonwealth Heroine.

“I am very proud and humbled to be recognized as a

Commonwealth Heroine along with this outstanding group of

women,” said Cameron. “I’m extremely grateful to Representative

Tom Walsh for nominating me for this honor, and to Mayor Ted

Bettencourt and his administration for providing the support and

resources needed to respond effectively to this emergency. This

past year and a half has brought so much heartache and hardship to

our community, and I feel privileged to be in a role to try to help.”

Cameron has been at the forefront of the city’s COVID-19 response,

testing and vaccination programs. Since the beginning

of the pandemic, Cameron has coordinated and been involved in

every aspect of Peabody’s pandemic response. From overseeing

public health staff to assisting the school system with reopening

PEABODY — Some School Committee

members aren’t happy that the district’s

expansion program at Essex North Shore

Agricultural & Technical School (Essex

Tech) has been cut.

They’re also not happy the decision was

made without their input.

“I am very upset that, as a School

Committee, we were never notified of

that decision,” said committee member

Beverley Griffin Dunne. “That bothers

me, as vocation education is a curriculum

decision. We should have at least

been able to discuss it and hear whatever

(Superintendent Dr. Josh Vadala based his

decision on). I’ve been trying to get these

facts, but nobody is giving any answers.”

The expansion program allowed students

to take core classes in English, math,

social studies and science in the morning

at Peabody High, then take vocational

courses at Essex Tech in the afternoon.

Due to high demand for seats at Essex

Tech, approximately half of all Peabody

students who apply are not accepted, according

to Dunne. The expansion program

provided an alternative for those students.

Technical Education (CTE)


Dunne, who is Peabody’s

Essex Tech representative,

said she learned the program

had been cut from the grandmother

of a student who had

not been accepted to Essex

Tech as a freshman. According

to the woman Dunne spoke to,

her grandson signed up for the

expansion program’s construction

course for this fall, only to

be told the program was eliminated.

Vadala told the committee

that the student has since

been accepted.

“We started this program two

years ago to give more kids,

like that student, more vocational

opportunities,” Dunne

said. “Our intention was to

grow the program because this

was our chance to give them an

alternative. I am infuriated.”

Following Vadala’s overview

of Peabody’s CTE program,

which did not address the reasons

why the expansion program

(also referred to as the

after-dark program) was cut,

committee member Andrew

Arnotis opened the discussion

on why it was eliminated.

“The City Council made

some great points in support of

the after-dark program the other

night (at the June 17 school

there is any new way of maintaining

the program,” Arnotis

“Not everyone goes to college.

with this program doesn’t help

Vadala conceded the program

“is a good one (but) we want

students to come to our high

school and take the programs

we offer.”

Councilor-at-Large Jon Turco,

who had previously expressed

his opposition to cutting the

program at the budget hearing,

said he strongly disagrees with

Vadala’s decision.

“What Dr. Vadala left out is

that the program is operated out

of Local Laborers 22, which we

don’t have in Peabody CTE,”

Turco said. “Some kids can

The 2021 heroines are described

as the women “who

have kept the community together

most. They may not always

make the news, but they most

assuredly make a difference.”

This is the 18th year of the

commission’s Commonwealth

Dunne said she attended a

press conference held by Gov.

Charlie Baker at Essex Tech in

April and was stunned when he

referred to Peabody’s vocational

programs as “forward-looking.”

“I wondered if he would have

said that had he known we had

just cut a great program that

added more vocational education,”

she said. “We have a crisis

in vocational education. Gov.

Baker said there are 30,000

students in Massachusetts on

waitlists. We should be adding

programs, not cutting them.”

While Dunne was happy

accepted to Essex Tech,

she is concerned about the fate

of others who might not be as


“What happens to those kids?

They have no options,” she said.

Important information from

the National Center for Injury

Prevention and Control:

There are four things you can

do to prevent falls:

Speak up. Talk openly with

your health care provider about

fall risks and prevention. Have

your doctor review your medicines.

Keep moving. Begin an exercise

program to improve your

strength and balance.

Get an annual eye exam. Replace

eyeglasses as needed.

Make your home safe: Remove

clutter and tripping hazards.

Contact your local community

or senior center for

information on exercise fall-prevention

programs, and options

for improving home safety.

Stay independent: One in

four people 65 and older fall

each year. What can you do to

stay independent?

Many people make financial

plans for retirement, but not everyone

plans for other changes

that may come with age. This includes

changes in your mobility

and your ability to get around.

as we get older, physical changes

in helping with this event

should contact Mark O'Neill at


With safety as the first priority,

all Health Department best

practices are being followed at

each celebration.

Please screen your family for

COVID-19 symptoms prior to

the event. Anyone with symptoms

should not attend. Anyone

with recent exposure to an individual

with COVID-19 or awaiting

the results of a COVID-19

fully vaccinated.

can make it harder to get around

and do things we want or need

to do, like driving, shopping or

doing household chores. (There

may be a time when you still

need to get around, but can no

longer drive.)

You might not have mobility

problems now, but you could in

the future. You may even know

others who already do: perhaps a

parent, relative, friend or neighbor.

While it may not be possible

to prevent all of these changes,

there are actions you and your

loved ones can take today, and

as you age, to help keep you safe

and independent tomorrow.

Jenna Durkin does it all

For the Weekly NeWs

PEABODY — Jenna Durkin

is basically the human equivalent

of a Swiss Army knife.

The Bishop Fenwick graduate

is a multi-sport athlete who

was also awarded a 2021 Agganis

Foundation Scholarship. She

was named an Agganis All-Star

in both soccer and lacrosse.

Durkin was excited to be

named an All-Star in both sports.

"It was really cool to be

nominated in both (categories),

because soccer is more of my

main sport. I like it better than

lacrosse, but lacrosse is really

fun too. We had a great season

for (Bishop) Fenwick so it was

great to play with the seniors at

Fenwick," she said.

Durkin's last season was one

to remember. In soccer, Fenwick

was able to make it to the championship

and that is something

she said she will never forget.

Jenna Durkin dribbles upfield for Bishop Fenwick.

In lacrosse, Durkin was just

happy to be back on the field.

Last season was wiped out due

to the COVID-19 pandemic, so

just being with her coach and

teammates felt great.

Durkin will be headed to

college in upstate New York to

attend St. Lawrence University

in the fall. There she will be

continuing her athletic career, as

she has been offered a spot on

the school's Division III soccer


Farewell to those

who served schools

By ANNe MArie toBiN

PEABODY — The district is

saying goodbye to 20 employees

who have retired.

"Their combined years of service

and the number of students

they have served here in the Peabody

Public Schools is amazing,"

said Superintendent of

Schools Dr. Josh Vadala. "Their

reach and their touch extends

far beyond just the students they

have now, but for years and years

and years to come. We want to

publicly thank them for their service

and wish them the best of

luck as they move forward."

Peabody Veterans Memorial

High School will be losing three

staff members: special education

teacher Leslie Ann Entwistle,

history teacher Abbie Gore

and physical education teacher

Kathy Pingree.

Guidance counselor Arlene

Broughton, English teacher Winona

DiNitto and senior clerk

Catherine Fortin are retiring

from the Higgins Middle School.

Burke School grade 4 teacher

Sylvia Ward, Carroll School English

Language Learners (ELL)

program teacher Olga Chaves

and Carroll School grade 2

teacher Marianne Reeves are

also retiring.

The Welch School is losing

English teacher Jayne Dantona,

preschool teacher Mary Ingersoll

and grade 1 teacher Marie


Other retirees include Center

kindergarten teacher Deborah

and Kathy Maragioglio,

South School ELL teacher Kelly

Knizak, Integrated Preschool

IEP Team Chair Kristin Hutton

Fay, districtwide health teacher

Christina McCarthy and districtwide

pathologist Susan Robert.

"It's amazing when you think

about how many students and

families they have touched as far

as teachers and educators and we

can never really truly appreciate

what they've done. They are all

going to be missed very, very

much by everyone," said School

Committee member Beverley

Griffin Dunne, adding the district

hopes to have an in-person

ceremony in the fall to honor the


"They can't get away that easily

without being honored," said


"I wholeheartedly agree with

Mrs. Dunne," said committee

member Jarrod Hochman.

"Something in the fall would be

very nice and appropriate. It's

important to recognize them,

many of whom have started and

ended their careers here. It's a

bunch of talented people."

Hochman mentioned two

other people who are retiring

this year: Carroll School crossing

guard Kathy Vinagro and

elementary schools' School Resource

Officer Rick Cochrane.

"They too have had a significant

role in the day-to-day

operations of the schools," said


Following a motion by

Hochman, the committee voted

unanimously to send a letter of

appreciation to the Police Department

in recognition of the

contributions and services the

department has provided to the


"These are two people who

have contributed greatly to our

school system and city," said

School Committee Chair Mayor

Edward A. Bettencourt Jr. of

Vinagro and Cochrane.


It was an easy decision for

Durkin, who said she clicked

with the women's soccer coach,

Sinead McSharry, at the university

right away, adding that she

felt "at home" while attending a

soccer clinic in which McSharry

took part.

While making the transition

to college can be difficult,

Durkin is excited that she will

have teammates who can help

her get used to things.

"I feel like being a part of a

team is such an easy way to automatically

make friends," she

said. "Freshman year I already

feel will be hard enough, but

having the team will make it a

lot easier."

Durkin mentioned that she

will not be playing lacrosse in

college, but feels that it is important

for young athletes to

play multiple sports.

"If I just played soccer I

would miss out," she said. "The

different techniques in each sport

help your main sport. Building

connections with other people,

leadership, all that incorporates

into your main sport, so I think

that playing multiple sports really

does help."

Despite a strong game on the mound and at the plate from

Abby Bettencourt, the Peabody softball team couldn’t get over

the hump in a loss to Billerica in the Division 1 North Final.

Peabody sees unbeaten

season come to an end

in Div. 1 North Final


By Mike Alongi

PEABODY — It was a close,

back-and-forth game from start

to finish on Saturday afternoon,

but in the end the No. 2 Peabody

softball team came up just short

and saw its undefeated season

come to an end in a 3-1 upset

loss to No. 17 Billerica in the

Division 1 North Final at Kiley

School Field.

The Tanners became the

latest team to be upset by the

cinderella Billerica squad,

which beat three of the top 10

teams in Division 1 North — including

No. 1 Woburn and the

second-ranked Tanners — en

route to the sectional title.

One of the main reasons the

Tanners fell short was the stellar

performance of Billerica relief

pitcher Analise Grady, who entered

the game in the second

inning and didn’t allow a single

hit while striking out eight batters

and only walking two.

“We hadn’t seen a pitcher

with a changeup like that all

year,” Peabody coach Tawny

Palmieri, who was a star on the

last Peabody softball team to

get to the North Final in 2006,

said of Grady. “She was unbelievable,

very hard to hit. We’ve

been able to get big hits all year,

but she came in and took the

wind out of our sails.”

Abby Bettencourt took the

loss on the mound in relief,

pitching five innings and allowing

three runs on three hits

with seven strikeouts.

It was actually Peabody that

struck first, taking a 1-0 lead

in the bottom of the second inning.

Logan Lomasney reached

first on a walk and then Penny

Spack smacked an RBI single

to put the Tanners ahead. The

sequence forced a pitching

change for Billerica, and Grady

came in to shut the door the rest

of the way.

But still, Peabody held onto

the lead until the top of the

fifth inning. Avery Grieco got

the start on the mound, but

Palmieri made the switch to

freshman ace Bettencourt in the

second inning after Billerica

started threatening. Bettencourt

pitched her way out of a bases-loaded

jam in that inning to

keep the Tanners ahead 1-0.

But in the top of the fifth,

Billerica got a rally going when

a single, a stolen base and a sacrifice

bunt put a runner on third

base. Samantha Gaona then laid

down a bunt, allowing Kailey

Roche to race home and slide

under a tag to tie the score at

1-1. Two batters later, a bloop

single brought home courtesy

runner Molly Stanton to make

it 2-1.

The score remained there

until the top of the seventh,

when Billerica’s Zaria Saint

Pierre smashed a solo home run

to make it 3-1.

There was a bit of controversy

that arose after the homer,

as Peabody coaches argued

that Saint Pierre — who left

the game in the fifth for courtesy

runner Stanton — had not

re-entered the game and should

therefore be called out. After a

long consultation with the rulebook,

it was determined that

the correct move was to issue a

warning and keep the run on the


The Tanners still had some

life after that, bringing the tying

run to the plate in the bottom

of the seventh, but Grady once

again shut the door and sealed

the win for Billerica.

Peabody closes its season at

17-1 and has a host of young

talent returning to the 2022



Behind a complete-game shutout from Christian Loescher, the Bishop Fenwick baseball team

won its second straight Division 3 North title with a victory over Stoneham.

Bishop Fenwick captures second

straight Division 3 North title


By Daniel Kane


Division 3 North title once

again belongs to the Bishop

Fenwick baseball team.

The No. 18 Crusaders went

on the road to No. 4 Stoneham

Monday for the North final and

walked away with a 6-0 win.

The Crusaders have now won

two straight Div. 3 North titles,

having hoisted the trophy in

2019 as well.

Christian Loescher was phenomenal

on the mound, tossing

all seven shutout innings and

allowing three hits, four walks

and one hit batter while striking

out nine.

“Christian really didn’t play

a role the first few games,”

Fenwick coach Russ Steeves

said. “We’ve been lucky, we

mercy ruled a couple teams.

He’s been sitting there patient

and waiting and waiting.

Finally (Sunday) I told him,

‘it’s your turn. You got 115

pitches and we’re not stopping

you until it’s done.’ I’m very

proud of him.”

This entire tournament run

by the Crusaders came out of

nowhere. Fenwick ended the

season at 8-11 and struggled to

hit the ball all spring.

“I was telling the kids, I

think there have only been four

teams in the history of Bishop

Fenwick to play in this game,”

Steeves said. “I was explaining

to the boys how hard it is to get

here back-to-back. We’re an

8-11 team. We were struggling,

hitting under .200. We were not

a hitting club. If we had regular

rules we wouldn’t have even

made this tournament.”

But over the last few weeks

the Crusaders’ issues have

vanished and, despite entering

the tournament as a low seed,

have looked more comfortable

than ever. Fenwick hasn’t even

allowed a run in four-straight


“I think once they realized it

was a new season and nothing

mattered they came together

as a team,” Steeves said. “I

also think that, missing a year

(in 2020), I had one guy over

there that actually saw a varsity

game before this season. The

chemistry wasn’t there and it

took a long time. You have to

have chemistry and you have to

have senior leadership for this

to happen.”

Scott Emerson (3-for-4) was

on fire at the plate and added an

RBI and scored two runs while

Chris Faraca (1-for-3, sacrifice

fly) had a pair of clutch RBI.

Alex Gonzalez had an RBI and

scored a run. Brandon Bloom,

Gianni Mercurio and Tucker

Destino all scored.

Most of the damage was

done in a four-run third inning.

Mercurio’s walk sandwiched

between singles by Bloom and

Destino loaded the bases for

Gonzalez, who laced a sacrifice

fly to bring in a run. Emerson

followed with his RBI single

and Bloom scored on an errant

throw. Faraca finished off the

rally with another sacrifice fly

to put Fenwick up 4-0.

That was all the support

Loescher needed and he was

backed up by a Crusaders

defense that was on point.

Destino’s throw home after a

runner tagged up on a fly ball to

center in the sixth stood out on

a day with plenty of big plays

and was matched by a diving

tag by his catcher, Faraca, to

get the out.

Fenwick tacked on a few

more runs in the fifth for

good measure. Faraca plated

Gonzalez and Emerson scored

later on a passed ball.

Loescher ended the game fittingly

with his ninth strikeout.

“At one point right before

the first game I told the seniors

I can only guarantee them five

innings,” Steeves said. “It’s

the seniors that took over.

They’ve been out of school for

six weeks. They absolutely just

wanted this.”

Next up for the North champions

is the Division 3 state

semifinals, where they’ll face

off against South champion

Medfield Wednesday (4).

this week.

Shull was the offensive

leader in goals and points for

a Marblehead team that finished
