Mystery of the town bell: Solved

By Anne Marie Tobin

LYNNFIELD — Many town residents

are familiar with the town’s

historic bell, which dates back to

1859 and was used as a fire alarm at

the Meeting House from 1903-1960.

Restored last month by Skylight

Studios in Woburn, the bell was

returned to its home on the Town

Common on July 2.

But what most people don’t know

is how the bell got there in the first

place.

Now, they do, thanks to Historical

Commision Chair Kirk Mansfield’s

recent discovery of an old letter

penned by former Parks and

Cemetery Commissioner Donald R.

Ross.

“The history of the bell is well

known, but for me, how it came to be

placed on the common is a more fascinating

story,” said Mansfield. “Turns

out it was destined for the dump

when the town was in the process of

tearing down the old Town Hall and

building a new one back in the early

SOFA

offers socialemotional

support

for kids

By Allysha Dunnigan

LYNNFIELD — The Summer of Fun

Activities (SOFA) program offers a variety

of half-day and full-day programs for

children in pre-K up to eighth grade, all

organized through Lynnfield Community

Schools.

Programs include, but are not limited

to, crafts, cooking, foreign language, academics,

art, sports and social-emotional

well-being; they are staffed each summer

by adult, college and high school leaders

and assistants.

This summer, the SOFA program was

extended from six weeks to nine weeks,

and leaders say there is a program for

everyone.

“Families return year after year with

excited anticipation for the programs we

offer,” the program’s website says.

Due to COVID-19, the program is still

airing on the side of caution and requiring

frequent hand washing, or the use of hand

sanitizer, and properly cleaning materials

daily, but masks remain optional for

1960s. This letter is a tale of

how, thanks to Ross, the bell was

saved and lives to this day on the

common.”

Ross, who served on the commission

in the 1960s, wrote the

letter to then-President of the

Lynnfield Historical Society Edie

Richard after reading an article

she wrote about the bell which

appeared in a local newspaper in

December 2001.

Ross wrote that at the time the

old Town Hall was being torn

down, there was a row of garages

on the back portion of the property

that were used by the Parks and

Cemetery and Tree departments.

Ross said he noticed the bell in

the corner of one of those garages,

“about to be loaded onto a dump

truck to be taken to the dump.”

Ross immediately called Jim

Fletcher, the road commissioner.

The duo moved the bell to the

highway department garage for

storage. The letter did not state

how two mortals managed to

move the bell, which is estimated

to weigh 2,500 pounds.

Some time later, Ross had a

conversation with Pete Pearson,

a former park commissioner, who

informed Ross that the foundation

of the old Town Hall was made

of granite mined from a quarry in

South Lynnfield, off Ledge Road.

“As I remember, there were two

quarries known as the first and

second quarry, as they were in the

same area as Nells Hole,” Ross

said.

Ross said, “As chairman of the

board, I made a motion to place the

bell somewhere on the common.”

Ross reached out to Fletcher

and together they were able to salvage

three pieces of granite from

the old foundation.

“Now the plan was to restore

the old bell and take two sections

of the old foundation and place

it on the common where they sit

today,” Ross wrote. “We then remounted

the old bell on top of the

granite.”

It didn’t take long for the bell

to become an attractive nuisance

for children, who routinely rang it,

mostly at night and on weekends.

“This happened so often that the

WEEKLYNEWS.NET - 978-532-5880 JULY 22, 2021

neighbors in the immediate neighborhood

complained to the park

commissioners,” Ross said.

Ross contacted commercial

artist Arthur Holbrook, who designed

and mounted a clamp inside

the bell to prevent it from

being rung.

Ross said the clamp was removed

several years later for a period

of time for unknown reasons,

much to his delight.

“For myself, it was always a joy

to hear it ring,” he said.

Mansfield said the exact dates

when the old Town Hall was demolished

and when the bell was

moved to the common as detailed

in Ross’ letter is unclear.

“There are a lot of conflicting

dates in the Lynnfield (A Heritage

Preserved) book that outlines

Lynnfiled’s history and when

the new Town Hall was built,”

Mansfield said, adding he believes

it was the early 1960’s, perhaps

1963.

For Ross, the letter was all

about Paul Harvey.

“I feel like Paul Harvey on the

radio with his commentary,” he

said. “Now, as (he) would say,

‘and now you know the rest of the

story.’”

The programs run on a weekto-week

basis, so children can

choose certain programs they

want to participate in each

week. The half-day programs

cost an average of $125, while

the full-day programs are

around $250.

A part of this program that

SOFA Director Sarah Perkins

said is key this year — due to the

pandemic — is the social-emotional

wellbeing programming.

With the majority of young students

restricted to their homes

for the past year, mental health

issues have increased across the

country.

Perkins said SOFA is hoping

to highlight the work of this

particular program to meet the

needs of the community.

The town’s public schools

implemented a social-emotional

curriculum a few years ago, and

SOFA is now doing the same.

“With the experiences this

“Both of these incorporate social-emotional

Lynnfield to receive $406,241

for roads and bridges

anne marie tobin

BOSTON – The House and

Senate have finalized a Chapter

90 bond bill that will provide

Lynnfield with $406,241 in road

and bridge funding for fiscal year

2022.

Town Administrator Rob

Dolan said while “the money

is appreciated,” he wished the

funding had been awarded

sooner.

“The Chapter 90 money for

FY22 is generally the same as

in previous years, (but) it has

been the goal of cities and towns

to have this money distributed

by the state in April and not in

mid-July with the construction

season well underway,” he said.

“This would allow contracts to

be signed and more work done

earlier.”

Lynnfield recently announced

the details of the many road improvements

that will be made this

summer. Highlights include repaving

of the portion of Summer

Street that was disrupted by a

National Grid project addressing

gas leaks, reconfiguration of the

Salem and Walnut streets intersection,

repaving of Juniper

Road, Timberhill Lane and

Timberhill Terrace and repaving

of portions of Hart Road and

Chestnut Street.

In addition to authorizing $200

million in state spending on the

Chapter 90 program, the bond

bill also provides for a total of

$150 million in funding increases

for six transit-related municipal

grant programs. The final bill

— which combines elements of

two earlier versions of the bond

bill previously approved by the

House and Senate — was enacted

unanimously in both branches

on July 15, with the support of

House Minority Leader Bradley

H. Jones Jr. (R-North Reading)

and Senator Brendan Crighton

(D-Lynn).

“The Chapter 90 program represents

an important state-municipal

partnership that, combined

with the increases in municipal

transit grants funding, will allow

cities and towns to address their

priority transportation needs,”

said Jones. “I’m pleased that

Senator Crighton and I were

able to work together to help

secure this critical funding for

Lynnfield.”

“It was great to work with

Representative Jones to advocate

for funding to improve our roads

and sidewalks,” said Crighton.

“This investment will make it

easier and safer for residents to

get where they need to go.”

Established by the Legislature

in 1973, the Chapter 90 program

is 100 percent reimbursable and

allocates funding to cities and

towns on an annual basis using

a distribution formula that takes

into consideration a community’s

population, employment and

total road miles. Municipalities

can use the funding for a wide

range of capital improvement

projects such as road resurfacing

and related work, including sidewalks,

traffic-control measures

and roadside drainage.

In addition to the Chapter 90

bond authorization, the House

and Senate have allocated another

$25 million apiece to six

state grant programs that were

initially funded in a comprehensive

transportation bond

bill signed into law on January

15. These grant programs offer

funding assistance for:

• the municipal small bridge program,

which helps communities

fund construction, repairs and

improvements for non-federally

aided bridges

• addressing local bottlenecks that

negatively impact traffic flow

• implementing transit-supportive

infrastructure, including

dedicated bus lanes and signal

prioritization

• prioritizing and enhancing mass

transit by bus increasing access

to mass transit and commuter rail

stations

• assisting municipalities and regional

transit authorities with the

purchase of electric vehicles and

charging stations.

The final bond bill also retains

language previously inserted by

the House stipulating that funds

received through the Coronavirus

State Fiscal Recovery Fund may

“be used for maintenance or

PAYGO-funded building of

transportation infrastructure, including

roads.”

The bond bill is now on

Governor Charlie Baker’s desk.

He has until July 25 to review

Lynnfield organizations

offer summer safety tips

FOR THE WEEKLY NEWS

Summertime is all about creating

memories with friends

and family both at home and

while away on vacation. Three

Lynnfield organizations offer

some tips to have a happy and

safe summer:

For outside celebrations, it’s

important to remember safety

doesn’t stop at the door. There

are many fire risks outside the

home, including your backyard.

Between 2016 and 2020

Massachusetts fire departments

responded to 427 grill

fires. Here are some tips from

the Lynnfield Fire Department

about outside fire safety:

Always grill outdoors with

grills at least 10 feet away from

the side of a building, only

on open first floor porches or

patios with a stairway to the

ground.

Place propane, charcoal and

wood pellet barbecue grills well

away from house and deck railings

and out from under eaves

and overhanging branches.

Leaks or breaks are primarily

a problem with gas grills. Check

the gas tank hose for leaks before

using it for the first time

each year, and of course, never

leave it unattended.

For campfires, fire pits, and

chimineas, always have a hose,

bucket of water or shovel and

dirt or sand nearby, and make

sure the fire is completely out

before going to sleep or leaving

the area.

Traveling this summer? Road

safety is especially important

during this season. According

to the National Highway

Traffic Safety Administration

(NHTSA), 2,042 people were

killed in crashes involving a

teen driver in 2019. Here are

some tips from the Lynnfield

Police Department:

Talk to your young driver

about the rules and responsibilities

involved in driving.

Share statistics related to distracted

driving, such as, “Did

you know sending or reading

a text takes your eyes off the

road for 5 seconds? At 55 mph,

that’s like driving the length

of an entire football field with

your eyes closed!” Distracted

driving includes talking or

texting on your phone, eating

and drinking, talking to people

in your vehicle, adjusting the

radio, entertainment or navigation

system — anything that

takes your attention away from

the task of safe driving.

Speeding is a critical safety

issue. In 2019, it was a factor in

27 percent of the fatal crashes

that involved passenger vehicle

teen drivers. When driving with

your family, model safe speeds

and discuss the importance of

adhering to the speed limit.

Keep cyclists safe by

knowing where bike lanes are

and looking before opening

your car doors.

Remember to buckle up. Not

only is seatbelt use the law, it’s

also one of the easiest and most

effective actions in reducing the

chances of death and injury in

a crash.

Summer is also a time of less

structure and more freedom for

youth. To help kids stay safe,

encourage them to stay active

during the summer by working,

volunteering or attending supervised

activities in the community.

To help them develop positive

relationships, A Healthy

Lynnfield offers this from the

Search Institute toward being a

trusted adult mentor:

Express care: Show kids that

they matter by listening to their

opinions.

Challenge growth: Help kids

reach for their next challenge,

hold high expectations for them

and encourage accountability

for their actions.

Provide support: Help them

achieve concrete tasks and

goals, instill confidence and

allow them to take charge of

their own actions.

Share power: Show respect

and give kids a say in family decisions.

Let them lead a summer

family activity.

Expand possibilities: Connect

kids with people and places to

help broaden their world.

Working together, everyone

can have a safe and healthy

summer.

WEEKLYNEWS.NET - 978-532-5880 7

Vivien A (Covino) Regan, 90

1931 - 2021

PEABODY - Vivien A (Covino) Regan

of Peabody, formerly of Saugus

and Winthrop, passed away

peacefully on July 17, 2021, at

the Melrose-Wakefield Hospital.

She was the devoted wife of the

late Walter J. Regan, with whom

she shared over sixty years of marriage.

No doubt Dad was waiting

with open arms.

Born in Boston, she was the

daughter of the late Joseph (Giuseppe)

Covino who emigrated

from Italy and Eva (Studzinska)

who emigrated from Poland. Vivien

grew up in Winthrop and was

a proud graduate of WHS, Class of

1949 (the 49ers). She was also

proud not to be a member of the

Naughty Niner’s. Her mom, Eva

(pronounced Ev ah) had a green

thumb, was an animal whisperer,

and was terrified of thunder and

lightning. When thunder rumbled

through Winthrop, her mom would

sit on the table in the middle of

the kitchen, clasping Holy Water

to her chest. No lightning ever

dared strike Eva’s Catholic home.

Her dad Joseph was a gentle and

well-educated man who once

owned a fish market in Boston and

died in his beloved Italy.

Vivien was a dear and dedicated

sister to Rose Larson, Connie

Mustone, Gloria Panarello, Grace

Price, Josephine Natale, and

Francis (Frank) Covino - the only

son of a proud Italian father, and

that made him a big deal. Mom

and her sisters were affectionally

known as CBS (the Covino Broadcasting

System) based on their

timely and efficient dissemination

of local “news” from one sibling

to the next, a telephone line Vivien

manned with her family and

friends for the rest of her life.

Vivien is survived by her sons

Tim (Deb) Regan, Paul Regan,

Matt (Kathy) Regan, Jack (Michaela)

Regan and her daughter who

was her “heart”, the aptly named

Joy (Andrew) Wallace; her beloved

grandchildren, Chris and TJ

(Stephanie) Regan, Alex, Matthew

and Nicole Regan, Jill, Katie and

Samantha Wallace, and Jack and

Caitlyn Regan; and by two great

grandchildren, Mason Regan and

Brody Walter Regan. She loved her

siblings’ children as her own and

was the “favorite” Auntie Bib to so

many loving and devoted nieces

and nephews. Their love for our

mom was palpable and kept her

heart full as she prepared to move

on to heaven.

Our mom also had a legion of

friends, and many would say that

she was the glue that kept them

together all these years. It is impossible

to reflect upon our mom’s

life without thinking of all her Pals.

Before she died, she told me to

“tell my Pals I love them”. And that

she did.

To our Mother, Grandmother,

Great Grandmother, Sister, Aunt,

and Friend, we are so lucky to

call you ours. 90 years on earth

is quite the accomplishment. What

an honor it was to share our time

with you.

Service Information: Friends

and family were invited to attend

Vivien’s Funeral Mass on

Wednesday, July 21, 2021, at

10:30 a.m. at Saint Adelaide’s

Church, 708 Lowell Street,

Peabody, MA. In lieu of flowers,

donations may be made in her

name to Saint Jude at www.stjude.org.

William F. Keane, 99

1921 - 2021

PEABODY - William Keane, age

99, passed away on Sunday, July

18, 2021, at the Brudnick Center,

Peabody. He was the beloved

husband of the late

Helen (Fox) Keane, with

whom he had shared 54

wonderful years of marriage.

Born in Peabody, MA

on July 28, 1921, he was a son

of the late John and Irene (Meagher)

Keane. William graduated

from Peabody High School, and

then proudly enlisted in the United

States Army. He was active during

World War II, and spent much of

his time in Europe, ending in Berlin.

William was honorably discharged

as a Corporal in 1945.

Upon his return home, he settled

down with his wife and daughter

in Lynn. During his time in Lynn,

before moving in with his daughter

in Peabody, William worked as a

custodian for the City of Lynnfield.

He was a member of the American

Federal State County Municipal

Employees. In his free time, William

loved working on cars when

he was able. He would often refurbish

and sell vehicles he worked

on. Above all else though, William

loved his family; and the time

he spent with his wife, daughter,

grandchildren and great-grandchildren,

meant everything to him.

Surviving William is his dear

daughter, Patricia Ann Denny and

her husband Charles J. of

Peabody; his grandchildren,

Charles J. Denny,

Jr. and his wife Angeli of

Peabody, and William F.

Denny of Peabody; his

great-grandchildren, Jared

Denny, Angela Denny, Angelo Denny,

Andrei Denny, and Scott Denny;

his sister, Noreen Dubiansky and

her husband Joseph of Deerfield,

LYNNFIELD — Both

Anna Kaminsky and Caitlin

McCormack spent their childhoods

going to the recreational

program put on by the town.

Now as rising seniors at

Lynnfield High School, both

are counselors for the program

and are giving back to

the place that gave them so

many memories.

“Growing up, coming to

this camp was really fun,”

said McCormack. “So now

to be able to share the same

experiences that I was once

given by the counselors is really

awesome.”

Kaminsky mentioned that

she remembers making bracelets

with counselors when she

was younger, and how it was

a memorable bonding experience

to do crafts with them.

Now, like their predecessors,

both Kaminsky and

McCormack feel that bonding

with the kids is a central part

of the experience of being a

camp counselor.

“(The kids) are all really

cute. Just seeing everyone

happy, playing all together,

getting along, it’s all just a

really good perspective,” said

Kaminsky.

McCormack also mentioned

that she loves seeing

how happy the kids are, especially

since they have been

able to come to the program in

person, due to more and more

people getting vaccinated.

The town’s rec program took

program has been the biggest

year so far in terms of turnout.

Kaminsky stated that, since

she was a camper as a kid, it’s

really gratifying to now be in

the counselor’s shoes.

“I looked up to the counselors

so much and now I get

to be the counselor for (the

Lynnfield native Jonathan Luders drew the game-winning RBI

walk to give the North Shore Navigators a walk-off victory

Saturday night.

Lynnfield pitcher James Pasquale had one of two total hits and took the loss on the mound in a

loss to Peabody West in a District 16 Tournament game last Tuesday.

Peabody West blanks Lynnfield

in District 16 Tournament bout

By Mike Alongi

LYNN — After 48 hours,

several inches of rain and a

field change, the Peabody West

Little League All-Stars finally

were able to finish the job with

a 5-0 victory over Lynnfield in

a District 16 Tournament battle

Tuesday.

“The key for us out there,

and it never changes from high

school to Little League to the

pros, is that we need to throw

strikes,” said Peabody West

Coach Mark Bettencourt, who

also coaches the Peabody High

baseball team. “We had three

guys go out there (Tuesday) and

throw strikes, challenge a good

Lynnfield team and come away

with the win.”

Brendan Kobierski led the

offensive attack for Peabody

West, going 2-for-3 with a

double and two RBI in the win.

Cullen Pasterick went 2-for-3

with a double and an RBI, while

Marc Bettencourt went 1-for-2

with a double and an RBI.

Pasterick earned the win on

the mound after going the first

three innings and allowing only

one hit with five strikeouts.

Lynnfield was only able to

scatter two total hits in the loss,

with James Pasquale (1-for-3)

and Grant Neal (1-for-2) each

notching one.

Pasquale took the loss on the

mound after 1 2/3 innings of

work, while Neal and Charlie

Piccotti saw time in relief.

Things got started on Sunday

evening, when Peabody West

jumped ahead early with a pair

of runs in the top of the first. A

pair of walks and a passed ball

put two runners in scoring position,

then Brendan Kobierski

notched an RBI infield single. A

throwing error on the same play

brought a second run home,

giving Peabody West an early

2-0 lead.

After two nights of rain

pushed the conclusion of the

game until Wednesday, Peabody

West came back and added another

run in the top of the third

thanks to back-to-back doubles

to start the inning. Pasterick led

things off with a two-bagger to

get into scoring position, then

Bettencourt stepped in behind

him and laced an RBI double to

make it 3-0.

After Pasterick moved 1-2-3

through the order in the bottom

of the inning, Peabody West

came back in the top of the

fourth and scored two more.

A leadoff walk, a single and a

passed ball put two runners in

scoring position, then Pasterick

knocked an RBI single to

make it 4-0. Two batters later,

Kobierski brought home another

run via a sacrifice fly.

Peabody West’s relief

pitching took over from there,

as James DiCarlo pitched two

scoreless innings and Mark

Bettencourt shut the door in the

final frame to seal the shutout

win.

By Joshua Kummins

LYNN — After being held

scoreless for the first eight

innings, the North Shore

Navigators came alive in

the ninth and drew two bases-loaded

walks to edge past

the visiting North Adams

SteepleCats for a 2-1 win in

Saturday night’s New England

Collegiate Baseball League action

at Fraser Field.

North Shore improved to 12-

9-2 on the season and moved

into sole possession of third

place in the Northern Division

following its third win in the

last four games. North Adams

fell to 11-10-2 after entering

the day with a 0-2-2 mark in the

head-to-head season series with

the Navs.

The hosts recorded just one

of their six hits in the final,

game-deciding frame as the

tying and winning runs scored

on bases-loaded walks by

catcher Cal Christofori (Santa

Clara) and shortstop Jonathan

Luders (Seton Hall), respectively.

Three of the Navs’ first

five hits came off the bat of

center fielder Joe Lomuscio

(Stanford).

Navs starter Austin Amaral

(Stetson) benefited from

Lomuscio turning a fly ball

double play in the first inning

before working around single

baserunners in each of the next

three frames. After a 1-2-3 fifth,

the SteepleCats were finally

able to manufacture the game’s

first run as designated hitter

Jeremy Lea (Pacific) hit a fielder’s

choice that scored second

baseman Mason Hull (Missouri

State), who hit a leadoff triple.

Amaral pitched well enough

to win as he struck out seven

while scattering five hits across

his six innings of work, but

his offense managed just three

hits and one of three Luders

walks over the first five innings

against North Adams righty

Brian Zeldin (Penn).

North Shore’s finest opportunity

to score came in the

very next half-inning as third

baseman Matthias Haas (Cal

Poly) drew a leadoff walk before

being tagged out trying to

cross the plate on a wild pitch.

Lomuscio followed by legging

out his third infield single, but a

pop out ended the threat and allowed

SteepleCat reliever Luke

Benneche (Lafayette) to escape

the trouble.

The Navs relief trio of Zach

Chappell (North Florida),

Aaron Groller (Seton Hall) and

James Sashin (San Diego) allowed

two combined hits over

the final three innings to put the

team in position for a walk-off,

its fifth win in a one-run game

this season. Chappell started the

late innings by striking out the

side.

Sashin retired the last two

batters he faced after a one-out

single in the ninth. From there,

the Navs went to work and got

their reliever his second win of

the summer.

First baseman Logan Bravo

(Harvard) started the frame

with a swinging bunt single and

stole second before designated

hitter Ryan Marra (Brown)

drew the first of four walks in

the inning. Second baseman

Jake Gustin (Bryant) was intentionally

passed to first base

before Christofori’s trip to the

plate forced home the tying run.

Benneche, who worked the

final 3.2 innings, recorded his

second strikeout of the frame to

bring Luders to the plate with

two outs. The Lynnfield native

drew a five-pitch walk that

scored pinch-running infielder

Alex Lemery (Marymount) to

decide the game.

Thorbjornsen takes

Mass. Amateur title

after historic day

Authors Sean Stellato, center, and his daughter Gianna stand with Philadelphia Eagles wide

receiver Michael Walker as they show off the new book that the father/daughter duo wrote

together entitled “Football Magic: A Pirate’s Tale.”

Stellato family releases

some more ‘Football Magic’

By Mike Alongi

SALEM — For Salem native

Sean Stellato, Saturday night

was an evening of good times,

old friends and working together

for a good cause. Surrounded by

family, friends and supporters

of all kinds, Stellato and his

14-year-old daughter Gianna

celebrated the release of their

latest book, entitled “Football

Magic: A Pirate’s Tale.” The

book is a follow-up to their

first story as a father-daughter

writing duo, having released

“Football Magic: Buddy’s New

Beginning” back in 2019.

“It’s a little surreal to see so

many people come out to support

the vision and the goal

of helping other people,” said

Sean Stellato, who currently

works as an NFL agent. “And to

be here with my daughter, I’m

really grateful and blessed to be

able to do this and create something

that we think will really

help change lives.”

“It’s been really fun working

together and writing about

things that we both love,” said

Gianna Stellato. “And to see

the reaction from everyone

and to see everyone come out

here and support us, it’s really

incredible.”

The book picks up where the

last one left off, with main characters

Buddy and Gianna riding

high after winning the league

championship at school. Even

better, Buddy’s dad decided to

keep the family in Salem, so

that Buddy and his sister can

stay with their new friends after

adjusting to life in a new town

in Massachusetts.

When Buddy and Gianna

discover something magical, it

leads them on a mysterious adventure

through historic Salem

and Marblehead. Things seem

to be going great — until the

wicked Kurtin Drapes and his

raven reveal some dreadful

plans. With the clock ticking

and time running out, will they

be able to outwit Drapes? Can

Buddy and Gianna do the impossible,

or will the magical

ball lose its luster forever?

“We already had the basics

of our story when we started

writing this one, so that helped a

lot,” said Gianna Stellato. “And

it was fun to then go in and add

more characters and make the

story bigger and everything like

that. It’s a lot more enchanted

than the first book and has a

lot more magic, and I think we

were really able to get more creative

with this one.”

The evening began with a

VIP reception on the roof of the

Hawthorne Hotel at the Salem

Maritime Center before moving

over to the House of the Seven

Gables for the main event.

A number of current and

former athletes came out to support

Stellato for the event, including

but not limited to New

England Patriots safety Brandon

King, former Patriots safety

Obi Melifonwu, Detroit Lions

cornerback Ifeatu Melifonwu,

Philadelphia Eagles receiver

Michael Walker, former Boston

Bruins great Bob Sweeney and

Las Vegas Raiders assistant

director of player personnel

DuJuan Daniels, who wrote the

foreword of the book.

“To be honest, it’s a privilege

to get to know Sean’s family

and be a part of this whole process,”

said Daniels, the only

client that Sean represents who

is on the player personnel side

of the football business. “Sean’s

an incredibly driven person and

he’s doing some great things, so

just to play a small role in that is

very special to me.”

“Sean has always been so

supportive of me and everything

I’ve done, even before he

was my agent,” said King, who

has won two Super Bowls with

the Patriots. “So if I can come

out and support him in whatever

way I can, I’m always going to

do that.”

“I’ve known Sean ever since

he was a kid working out and

trying to make it in college football,

and I always remembered

his determination and passion

for the game,” said Sweeney,

who played for the Bruins from

1987-1992. “Obviously that

passion has extended into his

post-career work with charity,

and I’m glad to come out and

support his efforts.”

“Sean is a great guy and the

epitome of someone who you

want to have in your circle,”

said Walker. “I’m just happy to

be part of an event like this and

to play a small part in helping

him spread his message.”

The night featured a red

carpet event, a book signing, a

silent auction, a live auction and

a number of different raffles, all

to benefit the Juvenile Arthritis

Foundation.

For Stellato, the night was a

great opportunity to celebrate

all the things that he holds dear

— his family, his friends, the

game of football and serving his

community.

“Family is my core and football

has been very good to me,

and I’ve been blessed to live my

bliss every day and have my life

enriched by so many incredible

people,” said Stellato. “It’s so

gratifying to see everyone come

out and support our cause, and

I’m truly humbled by it all.”

WEST NEWTON — There

aren’t many amateur golfers

that can play the way Michael

Thorbjornsen (Wellesley

Country Club) can. As a result,

the roughly 200 patrons in the

gallery Saturday at Brae Burn

Country Club got a glimpse at

a young man who oozes professional

potential.

The 36-hole final match

Saturday at the 113th

Massachusetts Amateur

Championship featured plenty

of firepower, as it was the

first time two former USGA

champions were paired in a

state amateur final. But on

Saturday, Thorbjornsen shined

the brightest as the 2018 U.S.

Junior Amateur champion executed

one of the most spectacular

performances in the history

of the Massachusetts Amateur

Championship by capturing the

title with an 8&6 victory over

2017 U.S. Mid-Amateur champion

Matt Parziale.

Thorbjornsen, a 19-year-old

sophomore at Stanford

University, became the first

teenager to win the Mass

Amateur since Jim Salinetti

won the 1997 title, also at the

age of 19.

“Just winning the amateur

championship of Massachusetts

from where I’m from, it means

a lot,” said Thorbjornsen, who

competed in the Mass Amateur

for the first time.

“He’s a world-beater,”

Parziale said of Thorbjornsen.

“He’s incredible. I met him a

few years ago. He’s a great kid.

He’s got all the talent in the

world. I’m rooting for him, and

it’s his to take. He has a bright

future if he keeps going at this

pace.”

Though he was facing an opponent

from Brockton, a city

known for its fighting champions,

Thorbjornsen landed

some heavy punches early on.

He made birdie on his first five

holes and had another stretch of

five straight birdies from holes

12-16, opening up a 6-up lead

through the first 18 holes.

“Those first five just came

up on me pretty quickly,”

Thorbjornsen said. “Just driving

the green, two-putting, and then

having some tap-ins the next

couple of holes just feels really

good. And then birdieing the

first five, it’s just kind of tough

to compete against whoever

you’re playing, so I feel like

that’s what really set me up well

later on.”

The pair also set a torrid pace,

only needing 3.5 hours to play

the first 18, and capping off

their final 12 holes in exactly

two hours.

Errors were few and far between

for Thorbjornsen. Other

than a misfire off the tee on

his second crack at hole 9

that landed him in the fescue,

Thorbjornsen was within 10-

feet of the hole on his approaches

more often than not.

In almost any other year,

Parziale’s performance would

have left him in contention,

but there was only so much

the 2017 champion could do

to keep pace. Despite shooting

5-under-par on the first 18, he

still found himself down by six.

Of the four holes he did win

in the match, all of them were

birdies or better.

“I was happy with how I

played,” said Parziale, whose

father Vic caddied the entire

week. “So, if I played poorly

then I’d probably feel differently,

but I was happy with the

way I played. Today is the day

where one person is most happy

and one person is the most

upset. That’s the nature of this

tournament. It was great to get

here, but you lose, so you’re not

happy. At least I played well,

and he just played incredibly, so

congratulations to him.”

Parziale got it back within

five by driving the green on the

15th. He did the same Friday

with a 3-wood but decided to

use his driver and made the putt

for his lone eagle.

“They had the tee back again,

so I was fortunate enough to

hit a good one there, and then I

had a good line on that and hit a

solid putt there,” Parziale.

At the end of the day though,

there wasn’t much Parziale

could do other than tip his cap.

The New Retirement Savings Time Bomb

Kristen Reed

This book is written by Ed

Slott, who bills himself as

America’s IRA expert. After

reading The New Retirement

Savings Time Bomb, I agree!

Although a dry subject, your

defined contribution plans including

IRAs, SEP IRAs, Roth

IRAs, SIMPLE IRAs, Keogh,

401(k), 403(b), 457, etc. (together

call them IRAs) may

grow by retirement to be your

largest asset. Tax law changes,

in particular, the SECURE

Act, that mostly eliminated the

stretch feature when IRAs are

passed to your non-spouse beneficiaries,

proved that Uncle

Sam wants to tax a large chunk

of these savings. Ed Slott’s

book is all about ways to avoid

unnecessary taxes.

This book includes discussions

and examples on how to:

Move your retirement savings

from accounts that are forever

taxed to never taxed.

Keep retirement assets in the

family for decades, even generations,

with minimal or no

taxes.

Minimize taxes on your company’s

stock owned in a 401(k).

Decide when it’s advantageous

to move funds from your

401(k) to an IRA.

Create larger inheritances

with more control and less tax.

Integrate a retirement account

with an overall estate plan.

Avoid falling into tax traps

with inherited IRAs or other retirement

accounts.

Tap retirement funds for

emergency cash — without big

penalties.

Protect retirement accounts

from creditors, divorce, bankruptcy,

lawsuits, etc. that could

expose them to confiscation.

Determine, following the

SECURE Act, when you should

and shouldn’t use trusts for your

IRA.

There are many more areas

covered in this book. Ed Slott

does a great job keeping the

topics in layman’s terms, and

adds corny, if a little dated

quotes, including this one from

comedian George Burns: “I

can’t die. I’m booked!”

Anyone who has more than

a minimal retirement plan

Make the most of your retirement by learning to avoid unecessary taxes.

should get this book. The tax

savings could be huge, and

even financial planning, tax

and estate professionals may

miss some of the issues that

may affect you personally. To

Five free and simple ways to practice wellness every day

Wellness is feeling healthy

in the mind, body and soul.

It’s about creating a lifestyle of

positive behavioral patterns that

make you feel happy, fulfilled

and balanced, both in the shortterm

and long-term. While

certain areas of wellness cost

money, some of the most beneficial

practices are completely

free and widely accessible.

Here is a list of my favorite free

ways to incorporate wellness

into your every day.

1. Practice Deep Breathing

Deep breathing allows your

body to fully exchange incoming

oxygen with outgoing

carbon dioxide, improving

blood flow. Simply taking 3

minutes a day to slow down

and breathe deeply activates the

parasympathetic (rest and digest

system) and lymphatic systems

and detoxifies and calms the

body. It is an effective method

of reducing stress and anxiety,

stabilizing blood pressure and

slowing your heartbeat. The

best part? You can do it anywhere,

anytime, with even just

10 seconds. Find a comfortable

position and breathe in slowly

through your nose while actively

pushing out the stomach,

hold for a few seconds, then

slowly let your breath out

through your nose, letting your

stomach go down.

According to Kristen Reed, a Lynnfield resident and holistic

registered nurse, staying hydrated is key to a healthy lifestyle.

2. Take Walks

Research has proven there

are many physical and mental

health benefits to walking.

From easing joint pain and increasing

muscle strength, to

boosting immune function and

energy, and supporting creative

thinking and focus, walking

more is an easy way to improve

our wellbeing. Grab a friend for

one-on-one time or walk alone

to clear your mind and be with

yourself (a rarity in today’s

busy world).

Bonus: Walking outside in

nature provides the added benefits

of Vitamin D from the

sun and cleansing fresh air,

and studies show that even just

seeing greenery increases our

happiness!

3. Stay Hydrated

Water is incredibly important

to our health, along with eating

lots of real, whole foods like

fruits and vegetables, healthy

fats and protein. Drinking water

affects our energy, weight, nutrition,

focus and much more.

The best method to hydrate is

to sip water throughout the day.

Our cells need to remain hydrated

to keep us functioning

at our best! Keep your favorite

reusable water bottle close

to you at all times to prevent

dehydration.

4. Make Sleep a Priority

Sleep, particularly quality

sleep, is one of the most important

aspects of health and

wellbeing. We like to say that

quality of sleep translates to

quality of life. Our bodies need

good sleep in the same way they

need water and healthy foods in

order to function at their best.

Sleep gives the body time to

reset, destress, process information

and rejuvenate. Poor sleep

is linked to a a variety of negative

conditions — including

obesity and mental-health

problems. Establish a bedtime

routine that feels good for you

(even if it’s just 5 minutes), and

prioritize your sleep above all

else.

5. Practice Gratitude

Practicing gratitude is scientifically

proven to improve your

life and can literally change the

way your brain works. We

all have the capability to be

grateful each day. Take time

to acknowledge the positive

things in your life, what went

well today and what you appreciate.

Whether you do this in

the morning or as a way to review

and end your day with an

evening routine, it’s one of the

simplest ways to improve your

wellbeing. Practicing small acts

like these every day to keep

ourselves well pays off tenfold.

As you create these daily

habits, keep in mind that wellness

is your own personal

journey. Creating small healthy

habits in our daily lives that

make us feel good help to build

a resilient and healthy lifestyle.

Continue to do what feels good

for you and notice the positive

progress in your everyday

wellbeing.

Governor

Left to right, BSA Troop 48 members Michael Madden, Daniel Miller, Jacob MacPherson, Cole

Trainor, Paul Wehle and Jared Alphen were recognized as Eagle Scouts Sunday night in a Court

of Honor at Centre Congregational Church.

Six new Eagle Scouts

honored in Lynnfield

Anne Marie Tobin

LYNNFIELD — Six members

of Boy Scouts of America

Troop 48 in Lynnfield were promoted

to Eagle Scouts Sunday

in a Court of Honor ceremony

at the Centre Congregational

Church.

The Eagle Scout award is the

highest honor in Boy Scouts of

America (BSA).

Troop 48 Assistant

Scoutmaster Gordon Forrest

said attaining the Eagle Scout

rank is “pretty rare,” with

less than 4 percent of all Boy

Scouts going on to achieve that

distinction.

The troop’s newest Eagle

Scouts are Jared Alphen, Daniel

Miller, Cole Trainor, Jacob

MacPherson, Paul Wehle and

Michael Madden.

“For most of these young

adults, unless they serve in the

military or play on a Division

1 college athletic team, becoming

an Eagle will be the

most impactful event of their

high school and college years,”

Forrest said. “The lessons they

learn, the experiences they have

had and the relationships they

make will all serve them well in

their future studies and career

endeavors.”

Alphen’s Eagle Scout project

was aimed at supporting the

Centre Congregational Church.

His team of volunteers performed

several maintenance

and improvement projects

for the church, including improvements

to the Tower Day

playground, renovation of

the benches at the back of the

church, rehabilitation of the antique

window hardware in the

chapel and general cleaning.

A 2021 graduate of Essex

North Shore Agricultural &

Technical School, Alphen

will attend the University of

Massachusetts - Lowell in the

fall.

Miller’s service project consisted

of fundraising for the

construction and installation

of two new benches for the

front of Centre Congregational

Church. As part of the project,

Miller also completed the construction

and installation work.

“The benches are frequently

used by people enjoying the

town’s historic common,” said

Forrest of Miller, who also

graduated from Essex Tech and

currently attended Plymouth

State College.

For Trainor, his project consisted

of developing, funding

and installing a new entryway

sign and landscaping concept

for St. Joseph’s Church on

Union Street in Lynn. He led

a team that raised more than

$4,000 for the project. A 2021

graduate of Lynnfield High,

he will attend Massachusetts

Maritime Academy in the fall.

MacPherson’s service project

involved a comprehensive

survey of trees located in the

Lynnfield Common and surrounding

areas. The survey included

identification, condition

and geographic information

system (GIS) information of

the trees. This data will be used

by the town to plan for future

tree restoration and planting

programs. MacPherson is a

rising senior at Lynnfield High

School.

Wehle worked with the

Lynnfield Conservation

Commission to plan and deliver

improvements to the town’s

Partridge Island Trail. A new

trail gateway sign was created

and installed, and maintenance

was performed on the popular

recreational path. A 2021 graduate

of St. John’s Prep, Wehle

will attend the University of

Rochester in the fall.

Madden’s service project

was developed in conjunction

with the Lynnfield High

Athletic Department, the town’s

Conservation Commission

and the Department of Public

Works. The entities worked together

to build a new public access

walking and jogging path

in the town’s Pine Hill Lot off

Durham Drive.

The new trail provides an

off-road training course for the

Lynnfield High cross-country

team, as well as recreational

opportunities in the previously-unused,

town-owned land.

A 2021 Lynnfield High graduate,

Madden will attend the

University of Massachusetts -

Amherst this fall.

The requirements to become

an Eagle Scout are rigorous.

Scouts must be active in their

troop, team, crew or ship for

a period of at least six months

after achieving the rank of Life

Scout. While a Life Scout, they

must serve actively for six

months in at least one position

of responsibility, as well as plan,

develop and give leadership

to others in a service project

helpful to a religious institution,

school or their community.

They must also demonstrate

that they live by the principles

of the Scout Oath and Law in

their daily lives. They are required

to earn 21 merit badges,

including 13 that are mandated,

and take part in a scoutmaster

conference. Finally, scouts must

successfully complete an Eagle

Scout Board of Review.

Anne Marie Tobin

Peggy Pratt Calle presided

over her last meeting as president

of Lynnfield Rotary, passing the

gavel to Jack Moynihan, who

will lead the club in 2021-22.

The meeting, held at the

Sheraton Four Points in Wakefield

on July 8, was, ironically, Calle’s

first held at the Sheraton location,

as the hotel had been closed for

events due to the pandemic. With

few exceptions, Calle was forced

to conduct meetings during her

tenure by Zoom.

Calle has been praised for

leading the club through one of

the most unusual circumstances

ever. She received a floral bouquet

and commemorative plaque

in recognition of her service.

Moynihan credits Calle with

“keeping us all together, picking

service projects that could still

be performed successfully and

providing an energy and positive

attitude that was able to see

us through the pandemic.”

He said it is apropos that the

last initiative under her watch

was to set in motion a post-pandemic

raffle, supported by sponsors,

to honor the first responders,

doctors and nurses who have

served so selflessly through this

period. The drawing will be held

July 28 as part of the Lynnfield

Concert on the Common series

held on Wednesdays in July. The

concerts, which run from 6-8

p.m., benefit Rotary scholarships

Moynihan, a longtime

Lynnfield resident, is one of

the principals of Moynihan

Lumber, a family-owned business

with locations in North

Reading, Beverly and Plaistow,

N.H. He has been working in

the family business since 1970.

“I am honored to work with

my fellow Rotarians and lead this

club for the next year,” Moynihan

said. “We all look forward to resuming

projects and initiatives in

a manner that we have missed for

the last 16 months.”

On hand to witness the gavel

passing were new District

Governor Terry Rezendes

Curran, District Governor-

Elect Alex Falk and Assistant

Governor Dominic Rebelo.

Curran highlighted the focus

of new Rotary International

President Shekhar Mehta

which, along with increasing

membership, is the empowerment

of girls and young women

internationally. She also outlined

District 7930 priorities

and goals for the coming year.
