LYNNFIELD — The end of the

school year took a sour note for a

couple of young Lynnfield brothers

when a group of older boys verbally

abused them, using the “N-word” and

trying to steal their candy, according to

an account from their father.

“The casual use of this word can do

a lot of damage, to those who use it and

to those who have it used on them,”

the victims’ father, Dennis Anderson,

wrote in a June 21 Facebook post. “As

adults, I would like to think we all

know this. If your child is using this

word, you need to know. And you need

“It’s enough to be upset that my kids

the incident was “disturbing.”

“They attempted to take the bag

Anderson said. “The older boys then

who is Egyptian, that his older brother

“smells like s***” and called my boys,

environmental issues. The town

had been working with the

Department of Transportation

and some of the project’s contractors

throughout the pandemic

to keep the project

moving forward.

“We are excited to see the

progress we have made,” said

Inglese. “Naturally, we want to

try to keep things moving in a

timely and prudent manner, but

we do know nothing great happens

easily. We have to be patient

with the process.”

Richter said the town has

communicated regularly with

the Town of Wakefield and

Lynnfield’s consultant World

Tech Engineering, and has

also met with several environmental

groups including Essex

Heritage.

“We are now in the process

of completing the layout and

the preliminary design,” said

Richter. “The goal is 75 percent

design, which — even though

there still is a lot of permitting

to be done — we will pave

pretty much the entire project

design at 75 percent. We are

proceeding full steam ahead on

design.”

Dolan noted that due to

the pandemic economy, the

Massachusetts Department of

Transportation (MassDOT) has

prioritized rail trails, and he

questioned whether this is still

the case in 2021.

“Yes, this is a very important

project for MassDOT

as the final link for this rail trail

system,” Richter said. “They

are fully behind this project.”

According to Inglese, the

Wakefield component of the

trail is nearly complete.

“That 1.9-mile stretch is a

key part of our project and it’s

exciting that it is being completed,

maybe this summer,”

Inglese said.

Inglese said there may be

an opportunity to expedite the

funding process.

“If our design is completed

before funding dates of other

community projects, we may be

able to move up the STIP (State

Transportation Investment

Program) list if the other towns

aren’t ready.”

Officially known as the

Wakefield-Lynnfield Rail Trail,

the project has been debated for

more than two decades, oftentimes

the subject of intense argument

in Lynnfield.

In September 2019, voters at

a special town meeting debated

for nearly an hour before approving,

by a vote of 585-380,

to appropriate $348,000 for design

costs.

The project will convert the

former Newburyport Railroad

bed into a recreational trail that

provides for a safe, off-road

connection to the town’s key

resources.

The trail starts near the

Wakefield Commuter Rail station

and passes through two

Wakefield schools before continuing

under I-95 (Route 128)

into Lynnfield via a 0.6-mile

section of Reedy Meadow. The

trail then extends to the middle

school, Reedy Meadow Golf

Course and the high school

before ending at the Peabody

border. The total length of the

trail is 4.4 miles, with 2.5 in

Lynnfield and 1.9 in Wakefield.

“The goal is to take the natural

and passive recreational

areas and make the gem of the

town,” Dolan said. “If we can

get the rail trail done, Lynnfield

A Healthy Lynnfield honors five

will have many natural areas for

people to enjoy just steps from

their homes.”

Dolan noted that the

Lynnfield Center Water District

is working with Middleton,

North Reading and Peabody

to create paths and trails in the

upper Main Street area.

“With COVID and people

not having too many things to

do, a lot of people bought bikes

and also were walking outside,”

said Dolan. “I’ve talked to a

number of people who never

experienced rail trails who

have not only found them, but

loved them all across the state.

We are surrounded by a beautiful

rail system and look forward

to hopefully soon having

the Lynnfield connection

with other trails so people can

enjoy them.”

Anderson’s post set off

a flurry of comments on

Facebook in support of the

family, condemning the action.

“This makes me sick to my

wrote.

“Absolutely despicable,”

wrote Jen D’Ambrosio.

Dalton said he was proud that

so many community members

“The social media posts and

the family, very much appreciated,”

Dalton said. “Those are

After learning about the incident,

members of the Lynnfield

Police Department visited the

family on Monday.

“We are aware of the incident

from social media posts that

day,” said Interim Police Chief

Nick Secatore. “Going forward,

we will be working with the

Anderson thanked the police

for stopping by “to let the

Putting normal back into summer

By Allysha Dunnigan

LYNNFIELD — As the

world slowly opens back up,

summer recreational programs

in Lynnfield have returned in

full force.

Last week kicked off the

summer recreation program

for grades 1 through 8, with

about 300 kids signing up. The

summer recreation program for

juniors, primarily kindergarten

students, begins this week and

will see about 65 kids.

As a youth activity program,

the town’s recreational summer

camps were able to run last

summer during COVID-19, but

with all of the safety precautions

in place.

Citing the usage of masks,

social distancing, and frequent

hand washing and sanitizing,

Chair of Lynnfield Recreation

Rick Sjoberg said there were no

cases of COVID-19 in the program

last summer.

“We worked very closely

with the town and fire chief to

provide the proper training to

our staff,” Sjoberg said. “We

took it seriously, got it done and

were very successful.”

Sjoberg credited the hard

work of the town’s Recreation

Director, Julie Mallett, for

the continued success of the

summer programs.

“She is truly incredible,”

Sjoberg said.

He also acknowledged the

help of the program’s staff and

volunteers, which includes

teachers in the town and college

and high school students.

“The whole program has such

a great, positive community

spirit,” Sjoberg said. “It works

out and it’s going well so far.”

Many of the field trips and

activities were canceled last

summer, but will return this

summer.

Trips to visit Boston, local

beaches and other local attractions

will resume, in addition

to “rec adventures,” which can

be registered for on the town’s

website.

These adventure trips are separate

from the summer program

and are for grades 3 and older.

These rec adventures require a

fee for the outings that include

white water rafting, Canobie

Lake Park, Salem Willows and

the Codzilla boat. Sjoberg said

students in the summer recreational

program can attend

these trips but will just have to

pay the amount for each one

they wish to attend.

The town also offers fitness

camps and classes that focus

on strength and conditioning as

well as athlete development.

Other athletic opportunities

are available, including a crosscountry

training camp, volleyball

clinic, summer basketball

and golf programs, and camps

focusing on girls and boys lacrosse

and field hockey skills.

All of these activities can be

viewed and registered for on the

town’s website at lynnfieldma.

Anderson wrote. “My oldest

The incident comes one year

and son were arrested and

charged under the hate crimes

statute. The victims (and other

neighbors) displayed Black

“Let’s also keep in mind that

this (the MarketStreet incident)

was an act of a few,” Dalton

said. “Our town welcomes everyone

regardless of their race,

color, religion, gender, gender

expression, age, national origin,

disability, marital status or

“The fight against ignorance

and racism is far from over,

here, in our country and in the

has plenty of fight left within its

residents. We can do better. We

STUDENT OF

THE WEEK

Look out world — here comes Passatempo

By Steve Krause

LYNNFIELD — Nicholas

Passatempo, who graduated

from Lynnfield High School

last month, is one of two area

people to receive the Lique

Human Services Scholarship,

named in honor Vince Lique,

the late executive director of

Greater Lynn Senior Services

(GLSS).

Passatempo won the

$5,000 grant along with Lynn

English’s Samantha Parker.

The award, established 15

years ago, is given to graduating

seniors from schools

in Lynn, Lynnfield, Saugus,

Nahant and Swampscott. It

honors students who are interested

in pursuing careers

in health and human services,

and who have made an impact

in the world through community

service.

Because he has received this

honor, Passatempo has been

chosen Lynnfield’s Student of

the Week.

“Every year, it is a challenge

to choose just two honorees

from among the many

students who apply,” said

Kathryn C. Burns, GLSS’

chief executive officer. Burns

recently met the students outside

Lynnfield High to present

the checks for the grant.

Among those on the committee

choosing the scholarship

winners was Lique’s

wife, Kathy, as well as representatives

from the GLSS staff

and community members.

A top student and athlete

at Lynnfield High School,

Passatempo will be attending

Endicott College and hopes to

pursue a career in health sciences,

possibly in the field of

mental health counseling.

Math teacher Joseph

DiBiase describes Passatempo

as an active and involved

member of both Lynnfield

High School and the community

itself.

“Nick has been a summer

camp counselor, and volunteered

in multiple roles around

Lynnfield, such as Haven

from Hunger, Habitat for

Humanity, and several clubs

at school,” said DiBiase. “He

is also an executive board adviser,

a prestigious role where

he is one of five students to

organize and lead activities at

Lynnfield High School.”

Passatempo is just an

“all-around” good kid, says

friend and peer mentor Carlo

DeMaria.

“In the [high school] halls,

Nick is a friend to everyone,”

DeMaria said. “He can bring

a smile to anyone’s face,

whether it be a teacher or a

fellow student. His outgoing

personality is one of his strongest

qualities. He is a leader to

younger peers, providing them

with comfort and help whenever

possible.”

Passatempo said, “more

than 15 years after his passing,

Mr. Lique is still powerfully

impacting people’s lives in a

tremendous way, including

my own.”

He described the effect of

volunteering to help others as

“addicting.”

“My time volunteering for

recipient of the GLSS Lique Human Services Scholarship.

Haven From Hunger was especially

meaningful for me,”

he said. “It was inspiring.”

“It is our distinct honor to

offer these scholarships to

such deserving young people

— it truly gives us hope for

the future,” said Burns. “I

knew Vince Lique, and he

would be incredibly proud of

your achievements, your commitment

to community, and

your compassionate approach

to helping others.”

Senior News

Tapping into senior connections

For the Weekly News

LYNN — One result of the

global pandemic and its longterm

isolation is the need to find

innovative ways through which

people can stay connected.

One such effort includes a

new tool that Greater Lynn

Senior Services (GLSS), which

serves town residents, is piloting

called Uniper — a device

that plugs into your television

set, along with a small camera

which perches on top, enabling

one-on-one communication

with case managers, healthcare

providers, counselors, family

and friends.

“The COVID-19 pandemic

pretty much destroyed the limited

social connections that

many older people or adults

living with disabilities already

experience,” said Kathryn C.

Burns, GLSS’ chief executive

officer. “Research shows that

isolation, particularly long-term

isolation, has a very negative effect

on people’s overall health,

significantly contributing to

premature death from all causes

and increasing a person’s risk of

diseases like dementia.”

Uniper loads an individual’s

contacts into its device,

allowing for immediate virtual

connection.

“This is really the primary

reason we chose Uniper over

the many other platforms we

reviewed,” said Valerie Parker

Callahan, director of planning

and development. “We view

it first and foremost as a communications

tool to help people

better manage their health

and well-being, with Uniper’s

built-in programming as a secondary

— but very helpful

— add-on to reduce social isolation

and promote stronger

connections with the wider

community.”

It is easy to use with a simple

remote that allows people to

quickly transition from Uniper

back to television programming.

“Many platforms that allow

for virtual connection require a

computer, tablet or smartphone,

which many older people do not

have and might be uncomfortable

using,” Parker Callahan

noted. “But Uniper only requires

a TV, which most people

already have and use regularly.”

Uniper’s existing content includes

access to hundreds of

videos — travel, arts and culture,

music and educational

programs, as well as “live” programming

that includes exercise

and other classes, peer-led

discussion groups, support

groups and more — which are

available throughout the day

and scheduled by Uniper.

GLSS is developing its own

content, which will be available

to users through a separate

channel, and is also working on

developing some live programming,

too.

“We envision, for example,

that our Wellness Pathways fall

prevention and health selfmanagement

workshops will

be offered over the Uniper

platform, as well as group and

individual counseling through

our Mobile Mental Health and

Senior Citizens

Advisory Committee

For the Weekly News

LYNNFIELD — The town

Senior Citizens Advisory

Committee’s role is to recognize

the significant contribution

Lynnfield’s senior citizen population

has made to the town.

The Lynnfield Senior Citizen

Advisory Council plays a critical

role in making sure our

senior citizens receive the community

support they rightly

deserve to enhance their health

and quality of life.

The council makes recommendations

to the Board of

Selectmen on how the town can

effectively implement and coordinate

services and programs

that would greatly benefit the

senior citizen population.

The council focuses on pursuing

opportunities to ease or

reduce the tax burden for the

senior citizen population in the

Town of Lynnfield.

The Senior Citizen Advisory

Council considers and advises

on issues and concerns that

affect the senior citizen population

within the Town of

Lynnfield.

The council meets regularly

to discuss issues and concerns

brought to the attention of the

council. The Senior Citizen

Advisory Council is to appear

regularly before the Board of

Selectmen to update and advise

the board and Town of

Lynnfield on issues and concerns

that impact the senior citizen

population.

The Senior Citizen Advisory

Council is responsible for

conducting its activities in a

manner that is in compliance

with all relevant state and local

laws and regulations including,

but not limited to, the Open

Meeting Law, Public Records

Law and Conflict of Interest

Law.

Family Caregiver Support programs

in a private, HIPAAcompliant

setting,” Parker

Callahan said, “This would be in

addition to virtual case manager

visits with GLSS consumers.”

UniperCare is an innovative,

Israeli-based company with a

West Coast U.S. hub. Its programming

is starting to pop

up all around the country, but

GLSS is its first Massachusettsbased

customer.

One of the Uniper’s unique

features is the work they

have been doing with Jewish

Federation of North America,

connecting Holocaust survivors,

their descendants and

people of Jewish faith with tailored

supports and group meetings,

bringing together people

from all across the country in

celebration of some Jewish

holidays during the pandemic.

They plan to continue this

programming moving forward.

Uniper also offers a lot of

content in Russian and Spanish.

GLSS is initially hoping

to sign up 100 people age 60

and older or adults living with

disabilities in its service area

of Lynn, Lynnfield, Nahant,

Saugus and Swampscott for

the free one-year service. The

product will be reevaluated

after a year and could last beyond

that, depending on its results

and continued interest on

the part of funders.

Uniper offers training and

a helpline to troubleshoot any

issues users encounter. The program

is supported by funding

from the Administration for

Community Living as well

as funding through the Older

American Act administered

through the Massachusetts

Executive Office of Elder

Affairs, and a grant from

Beverly and Addison Gilbert

Hospitals, operated by Beth

Israel Lahey Health.

Interested individuals can

contact Andrew Wallace,

GLSS’ Title III Planner, at 781-

MALDEN — Three

Lynnfield students are new

members of Malden Catholic

High School’s Brother Gilbert

Chapter of the National Honor

Society (NHS).

They are Hayden Bond, a renewing

senior and a graduate

of the Class of 2021; Nicholas

Julian, a junior inductee in

the Class of 2022 and Mario

Russo, a junior inductee in the

Class of 2022.

The National Honor Society

is dedicated to advancing the

attributes of scholarship, leadership,

character and service in

schools.

In May 2021 Malden

Catholic High School inducted

140 new members into the

Brother Gilbert Chapter of the

National Honor Society. For

the Brother Gilbert Chapter

at Malden Catholic, students

become academically eligible

for membership when, after

four semesters, a cumulative

average of 88 percent has been

earned.

Students apply through a faculty

moderator and provide to a

five-person faculty committee

documented evidence of character,

leadership and service.

With help of faculty input,

the committee evaluates each

candidate, votes in a closed

session and makes the final

decision on membership. NHS

academic averages, service requirements

— which include

voluntary contributions made

by the student to the school

or community — along with

demonstrations of leadership

through resourcefulness,

problem solving and idea generation

are reviewed quarterly.

Students who meet NHS

scholarship requirements will

also have the opportunity to

submit information regarding

accomplishments in and commitment

to service, leadership

and character for scholarship

consideration.

According to Malden

Catholic Principal Rose Maria

Redman, “this has been an extraordinary

year for MC and

our students have performed

well despite the challenges

that were presented. We are delighted

to have an outstanding

group of students at our school

who, throughout the year, have

been dedicated to leadership,

academic excellence and giving

back to our community.”

Lynnfield native Pat D’Amico had a home run and one RBI

for St. John’s Prep in a Division 1 North Final victory over

Lincoln-Sudbury Monday.

D’Amico, St. John’s Prep

win Division 1 North title

BASEBALL

By Mike Alongi

DANVERS — Behind a

pair of clutch home runs and

a gutsy pitching performance,

the No. 4 St. John’s Prep

baseball team added another

piece of hardware to its trophy

case after taking down No. 2

Lincoln-Sudbury 4-2 to win the

Division 1 North title Monday

afternoon at Pete Frates Field.

In a funny bit of symmetry,

the baseball team is the second

St. John’s Prep team in as

many days to earn a win over

Lincoln-Sudbury after the Prep

lacrosse team knocked off the

Warriors to win the Division 1

North title on Sunday.

Sam Belliveau was the star

of the day for the Eagles,

tossing a complete-game twohitter

on the mound. He didn’t

allow a hit until the bottom of

the seventh inning, and had a

perfect game going through 5

2/3 innings.

Kyle Webster and Lynnfield

native Pat D’Amico led the offensive

attack, both smashing

home runs in the win. Shane

Williams added an RBI.

The Eagles didn’t waste

any time getting on the board

Monday, thanks to D’Amico.

Just one pitch into the game,

the senior third baseman turned

on one and smashed a solo

home run to put the Prep ahead

1-0 right away.

Belliveau got off to a great

start on the mound for St.

John’s, retiring the first nine

Lincoln-Sudbury batters in

order with five strikeouts.

The Prep added onto its lead

in the top of the fourth. After

getting a runner into scoring

position, Williams ripped an

RBI single down the left-field

line to double up the lead at

2-0. On the very next pitch,

Webster doubled the lead

yet again when he knocked a

two-run home run to make it a

4-0 game.

Belliveau continued to deal

on the mound after that, retiring

the side in order in the

fourth and fifth innings and

then getting the first two batters

of the sixth innings out as

well. But his bid for a perfect

game came to an end there, as

he hit Lincoln-Sudbury’s Evan

Munuz to give the Warriors

their first baserunner. He then

walked the next batter before

notching a strikeout to get out

unscathed.

But the no-hitter wasn’t in

the cards for Belliveau, as he

gave up his first knock in the

bottom of the seventh. Lincoln-

Sudbury followed with an RBI

double from Tommy Rogers

and grabbed another run on an

error, but Belliveau buckled

down and forced a gameending

4-6-3 double play to

send the Eagles on to the next

round.

St. John’s Prep (14-3) now

moves on to the Division 1 state

semifinal, where the Eagles

will take on South champion

Xaverian Wednesday (4).

Lynnfield sees dream season

come to a close in North Final

BOYS TENNIS

By Mike Alongi

WESTON — The Lynnfield

boys tennis team saw its undefeated

season come to an end

on Friday afternoon, as the

No. 2 Pioneers fell to No. 1

singles (6, 2-6), while Jamil

Khodr lost in second singles

third singles (0-6, 1-6). In doubles

play, the team of David

Kasdon and Jason Yang fell

in first doubles (0-6, 0-6) and

the team of Rafik Khodr and

Russell Kasdon fell in second

Lynnfield finishes the season

at 13-1.

Luders, Rose place at All-State meet

TRACK

By Mike Alongi

A number of local track and

field athletes competed in the

All-States over the weekend,

including Lynnfield runners

April Luders and Jasmine

Rose.

On the girls side, Luders finished

ninth in the pentathlon

10th in the 100 (26.28).

by setting another school

record, this time in the 400.

Murphy finished fourth after

running a time of 56.37, her

fifth individual school record

time as a member of the

Tanners.

“She’s the greatest sprinter

we’ve ever had for girls,”

Peabody coach Fernando Braz

said of Murphy, who will be

running at Boston College next

year.

Elsewhere in the girls events,

Peabody’s Lindsey Wilson finished

eighth in the high jump

(5-2), Peabody’s Arlene Davila

finished ninth in the shot put

(33-10 1/4) and 12th in the

Above the Influence a success

By Allysha Dunnigan

LYNNFIELD — Local students,

businesses, and A Healthy

Lynnfield members rolled out

the Above the Influence anti-substance

abuse campaign

with the focus on helping town

residents make healthy choices.

One of the goals of this

campaign is to influence what

people think about substance

abuse in the community, which

Substance Abuse Prevention

Coordinator Peg Sallade said

carries a variety of messages on

social media.

The campaign was created

as a partnership between students

from the middle and high

schools and the nonprofit A

Healthy Lynnfield (AHL).

High School Youth Council

leaders Maddie Cook, Sarah

Doherty and Riley Slaney said

they have seen success with the

campaign and are happy to be

involved in it.

Some campaign activities provided

by Above The Influence

included “Be It,” where participants

worked on developing

their own personal brands, and

“Tag It,” where they went into

the community and learned to

recognize and identify negative

influences — as well as positive

ones which keep them “above

the influence.”

Leanne Bordonaro, AHL’s

outreach coordinator, said the

partnership with restaurants

began in March and kicked

off the Above the Influence

campaign.

“The businesses that signed

the pledge were promoted in

the news as a responsible business

who really care about

protecting kids from underage

alcohol sales,” Bordonaro said.

“The pledge was a great opportunity

to continue to build relationships

in a positive way.”

Some restaurants displayed

Above the Influence’s poster

in their establishment, and

Bordonaro said the 13 businesses

that signed the pledge

were very supportive.

Cook, Doherty and Slaney

helped create a video listing 21

reasons to be above the influence,

bringing in peers who are

not involved in the coalition.

Through Above the Influence,

Sallade said the goal is to focus

the campaign on one message

that can engage different partners

and people in the community

in different ways, with

making healthy choices being

the focus for 2021.

For 2021, the group based

Proud Supporter

their initiative off a national

media campaign by the same

name, which was run several

years ago, and designed different

aspects to reach a broad

swath of people.

This included getting local

businesses involved by encouraging

restaurants to sign a

pledge to not serve alcohol to

underage individuals.

Julie Greene, Drug Free

Communities program coordinator

at AHL, works with youth

in the community and said this

year was the first where AHL

operated as an after-school,

club-based program. Kids in

the program participated with

Above the Influence by engaging

in a number of activities

and projects.

“Anyone that works with

youth really wants to focus on

teaching and building resiliency,

which I think is what this

campaign really embodies,”

Greene said.
