for Town Meeting

By Anne MArie ToBin

The Select Board will be finalizing

the Town Meeting warrant at its

meeting on Monday night.

The Town Meeting is scheduled for

Oct. 18.

“This meeting is just an opportunity

for the board to review the warrant and

decide which of the articles it will support,”

said Town Administrator Rob

Dolan. “It’s routine, as this year it’s really

only about the Richardson Green

property and the tree-preservation

bylaw, as the other articles are routine

concerning transfer of funds.”

Only four articles were submitted to

the board. Article 1 seeks to transfer

funds to pay overdue bills of the prior

fiscal year, while Article 2 seeks a

transfer of funds to supplement certain

accounts in fiscal year 2022.

The third article — the tree-preservation

bylaw — was submitted by the

Planning Board.

The board submitted a similar article

at a Town Meeting held last fall, but

it was withdrawn after residents expressed

their opposition and confusion

with the proposal. Since then, the board

Select Board rejects

Richardson Green plan

By Anne MArie ToBin

LYNNFIELD ― The Select

Board declined to give its

support to a warrant petition

seeking a zoning change of the

Richardson Green property on

Main Street, seemingly closing

the door on developer Angus

Bruce’s proposed project to

build 54 units of senior housing.

Bruce appeared at Monday’s

night Select Board meeting to

tout the benefits of the project,

seeking the board’s support

for the zoning change and the

project. He said the development

will generate “millions

of dollars” of revenue for the


“I cannot endorse the project

as proposed for this property,”

said Select Board member Phil

Crawford. “It seems similar to

what we have seen before and it

looks like you have added some

carrots at the end of the stick

and, while that doesn’t diminish

the benefits as you pointed out,

I prefer the direction we are

heading in.”

The direction referred to by

Crawford concerns the town’s

stepped-up efforts to exercise

a right of first refusal it holds

on the property at the contract

price of $2.71 million. Recently,

the town received a $1.6 million

Municipal Vulnerability

Preparedness (MVP) Action

Grant to help fund the town’s

acquisition, which Town

Administrator Rob Dolan has

described as “one of the largest

MVP grants he has ever seen.”

In addition, the Lynnfield

Conservation Commission has

pledged $200,000 toward acquisition.

Most recently, the Essex

County Greenbelt Association

pledged another $300,000 toward

the project. Combined,

those leave a gap of approximately

$571,000, which will

be funded from the proceeds of

the town’s $3.8 million federal

stimulus funds award.

The bottom line is the town

will use the funds to simultaneously

exercise its right of first

refusal, assigning its rights to

the property to Greenbelt under

Massachusetts General Laws

Chapter 61. The town would

then purchase a conservation

restriction from Greenbelt to

preserve the property in perpetuity

as open space.

Bruce’s proposal calls for the

construction of a 54-unit, 55-

plus housing project for seniors

on part of the 21-acre parcel,

with about 10 acres being given

to the town for use as open

space. A project rejected by the

town two years ago called for

a single-family development.

Bruce submitted a citizen’s

petition for inclusion on the

Oct. 18 Town Meeting warrant

seeking to change the zoning

from single-family residential

to an elderly housing district.

Bruce’s project will provide

access to the property at the

rear of the parcel via a road as

well as five parking spaces. A

1,700-foot water main from the

intersection of Lowell and Main

streets will be constructed,

along with several fire hydrants.

WEEKLYNEWS.NET - 978-532-5880 OCTOBER 7, 2021

Bruce said one of the proposed

units will be reserved as affordable

housing for a veteran.

Bruce said the project

will generate approximately

$800,000 in property taxes, a

$20,000 impact fee per unit totalling

$1,060,000 plus excise

taxes. The town will also benefit

from enhanced fire-safety

improvements with new fire


“I am impressed with the

presentation and the benefits

you cite, but I think that even

six months ago we did not

know that we would be in this

position to be able to acquire

this property at no cost to the

taxpayers,” Select Board Chair

Dick Dalton said. “This, too, is

my preference.”

While Select Board member

Joe Connell agreed with

Crawford and Dalton, Bruce

did not.

“I don’t know why they don’t

discuss the money, that’s other

people’s money,” he said after

the meeting. “It seems like

$571,000 is an awful lot of

money when I am giving them

10 acres for access and they

are getting all of that income. I

don’t agree that this is free.”

“One of the most important

things is the fire protection part

of this,” said Mirabeau Lane

resident Rich Ripley. “There is

a lack of fire protection in that

area, and having a developer

bring that in there is an enormous

benefit to the community

and the residents who live there

now. This is a missed opportunity

on our part for the town.

It’s just a shame.”

The Planning Board will hold

a public hearing on Oct. 13 at

7 p.m. in the Maney Meeting

Room at Town Hall to allow

residents to weigh in on the


Elect Ray Melvin Light Commissioner

Dear Voter,


Well I’m applying for an important job at OUR Peabody Municipal Light Plant.

That’s right it belongs to me and you!!!

I’m a 40 year electric utility professional that is extremely experienced for this position. I am an

advocate for green renewable energy such as a solar panel programs for commercial and residential

customers. Also, I’m highly interested in installing a LOW cost or NO COST WIFI network on our

electric system.

PMLP is a great municipal company and we can only make it greater with qualified commissioners who

effectively communicate with the voters and ratepayers and make smart informed decisions to keep

rates at their LOWEST and make PMLP the best MUNI in New England.

This is a challenge that I am ready for!!!

I want to be YOUR advocate;

I want to be YOUR Light commissioner!

I Respectfully ask for your vote


Developer Angus Bruce carries

a rendering of his plan.

has reworked the provisions of

the bylaw, significantly scaling

back the original provisions.

“We think now we have addressed

all the concerns that

have been brought to us by the

Select Board and constituents,”

Planning Board Chair Brian

Charville said.

The bylaw applies only to

“building activities,” Charville


“The only tree removal that

would be regulated with this

(bylaw) is tree removal that is

done related to a new subdivision,

new home construction, a

site plan ― which typically is

for commercial property (and)

not residential ― or a special

permit granted by the Planning

Board,” he said.

Charville said the board

made these changes because

they had heard concerns that

the bylaw shouldn’t apply to

the average homeowner who is

performing simple tree upkeep.

Director of Planning

and Conservation Emilie

Cadamartori said the Planning

Board met with the Select

Board to address its concerns

over the bylaw.

“We made a few more adjustments

after listening to the

Select Board and after the board

didn’t support it for the June

Town Meeting, we had more

time to understand the feedback

the public was giving us,”

she said. “This bylaw is substantially

different than prior

versions so we are hopeful.

“This is a beginning, but

people need to realize that this

bylaw only came into existence

because the public came to us

asking, ‘Why aren’t you doing

something about this?’ People

asked us to do something about

the fact that people were removing

trees. We just didn’t

think this up on our own, people

asked us to do something about

submitted by developer Angus

Bruce, seeking the rezoning of

Bruce is looking to change the

single-family homes.

Board, he said.

on Bruce’s proposal, which

is scheduled for Wednesday,

After an 18-month-long wait,

the Lynnfield Arts Guild (LAG)

will finally be able to show off

its work in person.

Their latest exhibition,

“Creativity on Parade,” will

be shown at the Beebe Estate

Gallery in Melrose every

Saturday of the month of

October, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

LAG was able to host shows

virtually up until this point, and

guild president Dan Abenaim

said it was tough to hold shows

over Zoom.

“For those 18 months (of

the COVID-19 pandemic), it

was like watching ‘Gone with

The Wind’ or ‘Star Wars’ on a

12-inch, black-and-white TV:

lucky to see them at all,but

not the same as full-color

Cinemascope,” he said. “The

impact of seeing the real paintings

on the walls of a beautiful

venue like the Beebe Estate is

almost physical ― you are assaulted

by multiple stimuli of

beauty and forms that make

you appreciate the magnificent

power of imagination.”

LAG recently announced

that local watercolor artist

and member Patricia (Pat)

O’Connor is their latest featured

artist. O’Connor has been

painting for over 40 years in

all mediums, starting in oil and

acrylics and now specializing

in watercolor.

“Art has always been a part

of my life,” she said. “I love

to travel, cook, and work with

my hands doing sewing, knitting

and, of course, painting in

various mediums over the past

40-plus years.

“In my free time I have been

involved in various community

and professional activities all

Abenaim said that he is

grateful for the support from

the Beebe Estate, adding that

more arts venues like theirs

are needed. The president also

touched upon the theme of

the exhibition, “Creativity on

Parade,” and the importance

of creative expression for everyone,

not just artists.

“Creativity is essential for

everybody,” said Abenaim.

“Sure, it is on display when you

see a painting or a movie or a

play, but it is also on display

when you don’t have all the ingredients

for a recipe and you

make do with what you have,

or when you are closed by a

yourself to survive and strive.”

The series will share the results

of a survey conducted this

past spring by Scott Formica,

Ph.D. of social science research

and evaluation.The survey was

limited to parents and caregivers

with at least one child in grades

5-12. It addressed perceived

norms, attitudes and preventive

behaviors observed or utilized

by parents and caregivers.

The results were shared with

the members of the Lynnfield

Substance Abuse Prevention

Coalition, also known as AHL.

“Scott will present the same

slides to the community that he

presented to the coalition, with

time for questions and answers

and facilitated discussion with

parents,” Sallade said. “The

data was really valid to help

deliver a normative message to

support and uplift the positive

behavior of parents. This data

allows us to celebrate the good

things in the community, so

hopefully parents will think it is

important enough to come to.”

Editor’s note: This information

Hospital’s Breast Health Services


Wear a Mask, Wash your

Hands, Schedule a Mammogram.

When the COVID -19 pandemic

began in 2020, many

women were forced to cancel

important mammogram and

breast screening appointments.

It is now important to reschedule

those appointments and take

care of health needs. At Salem

Hospital, we offer state-of-theart

screening technology and

easy access to appointments to

help women stay healthy.

Your Role

Beginning at the age of 40,

women should schedule an annual

mammogram appointment.

A mammogram is the single

most effective method for detecting

breast cancer early.

Monthly self-breast exams

are also important. Women

should be familiar with how

their breasts normally look

and feel and should report any

changes to a health care provider

right away.

Our Role

We provide you with a full

spectrum of exceptional breast

health care and support in a

convenient and patient-focused


Salem Hospital offers 3-D

mammography, an advanced

technology that enables our

breast health experts to examine

changes in the breast that may

go unnoticed by other methods,

leading to better detection and

greater peace of mind.

If your mammogram detects

abnormalities, we’re here for

you. Most of these abnormalities

are non-cancerous, and our

physicians can provide additional

testing to learn more. We’ll

keep you informed every step of

the way and will work with you

to develop a personalized treatment

plan if needed.

Because a mammogram is

important to detecting breast

cancer, we’ve made it easy and

convenient for you to schedule

an appointment. We offer

mammography in six locations

throughout the North Shore,

many offering evening and

weekend hours.

With our safe care commitment,

you can visit our facilities

with confidence knowing that

our staff is doing everything possible

to keep you safe while receiving

this important care. This

includes staff vaccinated for

COVID-19, universal masking

for all staff and patients, social

distancing, rigorous cleaning

and increased safety protocols.

Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Breast cancer screening and treatment

progress disrupted by COVID-19 pandemic

DALLAS (AP) –– Susan

G. Komen, the world’s leading

breast cancer organization,

is warning that decades

of progress in lowering breast

cancer mortality rates may be

in jeopardy due to the ongoing

COVID-19 pandemic and

called for a united response to

help save lives during this year’s

National Breast Cancer Awareness


Komen noted that in response

to the growing need for

financial support and overcoming

barriers to care, the organization

has increased its focus

on providing care and support

directly through its Patient Care

Services Center, the demand for

which has more than doubled

over the past year.

“Facing a breast cancer diagnosis

is difficult in the best

of times, but more so during the

uncertainty of a pandemic,” said

Paula Schneider, a breast cancer

survivor and Komen’s CEO.

“More people than ever are

encountering challenges in accessing

and continuing needed

care. Many have lost their jobs,

health insurance and are facing

new financial challenges. The

pandemic has also highlighted

persistent and tragic racial disparities,

like the startling reality

that Black women in the U.S.

are about 40 percent more likely

to die from breast cancer than

white women. Our support is

needed now, more than ever. Yet

meeting those needs will only

be possible thanks to the generosity

and passion of our donors

and fundraisers.”

Komen noted that there are

many ways that people can

help support Komen’s advocacy,

research and patient care

programs, from fundraising

through one of the organization’s

local Race for the Cure


events, supporting someone

walking in the Komen 3-Day,

60-mile walk, supporting one of

Komen’s LIVE Pink partners, or

by doing a personal fundraiser

that is meaningful to you, such

as hosting a Dress Up to Take

Down Breast Cancer educational

session or fundraiser at work.

The need for support is

clear and growing more urgent

by the day. Komen noted that

while progress has been made

in lowering mortality rates from

breast cancer by 41 percent in

the U.S. since 1989 thanks to

more than three decades of increased

access to early detection

and more effective treatments,

the trajectory of that progress is

now in jeopardy due to COVID-

19’s lingering impact on breast

health care.

Without a renewed focus on

early detection and efforts to

maintain people in the continuum

of care, as well as investments

in improved treatments,

we are likely to see more people

die from the disease. Even

without taking the impact of

COVID-19 on screening and

treatment into account, more

than 44,000 people are expected

to die this year from breast

cancer in the U.S. alone. Now,

due to the pandemic, which has

caused people to become hesitant

to get screened or see a doctor,

suddenly become uninsured

or face new financial challenges,

people are facing new delays

and barriers to care that are likely

to have tragic consequences.

–– Initial reports from the

National Cancer Institute in

2020 suggested there could be

an excess of 10,000 deaths due

to breast and colorectal cancer

by 2030 due to the pandemic.

–– A newer model in July

2021, suggests about 2,500 excess

deaths from breast cancer

by 2030 are expected to occur

due to reduced screening, delays

in diagnosis and decreased chemotherapy

use among women

with estrogen receptor positive

early breast cancer.

–– While screening rates are

rebounding from the pandemic

lows, we are still catching up for

many people who should have

already been screened and diagnosed.

This may lead to a surge

of new breast cancers, with later

stage diagnoses and increased


–– While healthcare systems




Authentic Chinese Cuisine

were able to adapt and adjust

treatment regimens to better

support patients during this

challenging time, many people

experienced a change or delay

in treatment in the midst of the


In response to the growing

and evolving demand for direct

support for those facing breast

cancer today, Komen has developed

a new national Patient

Care Center to help people overcome

barriers to care, no matter

where they live.

These services include a free

Breast Care Helpline, where

callers are connected to a trained

oncology social worker who

provides emotional support education,

and access to resources

such as financial assistance, patient

navigation and more. The

need for these care services continues

to grow.

Water-main break causes school closure


A water main break on

Summer Street wreaked havoc

Tuesday morning, causing the

closure of the Summer Street

Elementary School and leaving

several area residents without

water. The break occurred near

the Reedy Meadow Golf Course.

Water was shut down to Summer

Street residents from Westover

Drive to Todd Lane.

Water was gradually restored

to affected homes and businesses

starting at about 3 p.m.

that afternoon.

Lynnfield Center Water

District Superintendent John

Scenna said the initial alarms relating

to a drop in storage volume

and pressure started coming in



Connor Wright

Connor Wright, started a nonprofit to bring gift boxes to children hospitalized with COVID.


In between school at Pike

Academy ― where he is on

the honor roll, an after-school

program at Kumon, participating

in chess club and the

math olympiad, and hockey

practice and games, seventh

grader Connor Wright said that

he wanted to find a way to help

people during the COVID-19


Thus, Connor’s Kindness

Project was born.

“I wanted to give back,”

Connor said. “So I decided to

start a nonprofit.”

Connor’s Kindness Project

is an initiative making gift

boxes for kids who were hospitalized

due to COVID-19. On

Saturday, Oct. 2, the twelveyear-old

said that he enlisted

his cousins to help him put

together 40 boxes of his signature

“kindness kits” in one


“Right now my great-grandfather’s

basement is our home

base,” Connor said. “I’m

hopeful it’ll grow from there.”

Connor said he doesn’t really

like to brag about his Kindness

Project to other people. While

he said that his friends don’t really

know about his nonprofit,

Connor wants to start an advisory

board on what should go

into the boxes to make sure that

he’s sticking to things kids actually


Connor said that he wanted

to do something that would

make the kids feel like regular

kids again. Boxes include toys

― like Rubik’s Cubes, Legos,

and Pop It! ― a popular fidget

toy ― and personal and school

necessities, like Bomba socks

between 3 and 3:30 a.m.

“Those statistics showed us

we were losing water somewhere

in the system, initially up

to 3,000 gallons per minute,”

Scenna said. “Our operatives

were sharp enough to drive

around to find the source of the

problem. We finally isolated

the problem at around 5:30 a.m.

after discovering ponding on the

site of the golf course to the left

of the parking lot, so we knew

that was likely where the crack

in the pipe was.”

Scenna said due to the complexity

of the problem, he knew

that water could not be restored

to Summer Street School, so

the decision to close down the

school for the day was made. He

and a collapsible microscope

called Foldscope.

His last big project was

giving birthday boxes to kids in

homeless shelters. The boxes

included everything from cake

mix and a pan to bake it in, to

party hats and gifts.

“Not everyone can afford

to have a birthday party, but

everyone should have one,”

Connor said.

Now, Connor said his big

goal is to apply for 501(c)3

status. Getting this official

nonprofit status would give his

Kindness Project the ability

to get grants from the government.

Right now, everything

Connor has been doing has

been through donations alone.

“It’s really cool knowing that

I’ve helped a lot of kids out,”

Connor said. “I gave them

something they wanted.”

said that other areas within the

town were also reporting discolored

water and air in the water

including King James Grant and

Orchard Lane.

“However, given the severity

of the leak and amount of water

lost, customers throughout the

district will experience discoloration

and loss of pressure

until repair is complete and the

system stabilizes,” Scenna said.

“We expect everyone will have

water back by Tuesday night,

but it will take overnight to get

back to regulated normal conditions

for the system.”

School Superintendent Kristen

Vogel said she is “anticipating a

normal school day (Wednesday)

at Summer Street School.”

1950 - 2021

LYNNFIELD - John Robert Mitchell,

age 71, of Lynnfield, formerly of

Chelsea, died Saturday, October 2

at his residence.

Born in Chelsea on July 6, 1950

he was the son of the late James

Donald and Marion Viola (Spracklin)


John was raised in Chelsea and

was a graduate of Chelsea High

School. He went on to graduate

from the former Grahm Junior College

of Boston and to attend Boston

University. John had worked

in media, first with NBC in New

York City, then he spent time with

WEEI and WXKS-AM of Boston

until 1994 when he went out on

School district Director of

Technology Stephanie Hoban

updated the School Committee

Tuesday night on the district’s

plans to address its problems

with technology, which include

expiring devices and privacy


While she cited a number of

concerns, Hoban also provided

a positive update regarding

student access to technology.

The Lynnfield Public

Schools has nearly 3,000

Chromebooks, which is

enough to provide each student

in the district with a device,

Hoban said. However,

she said that each of these devices

comes with an expiration

date for upgrades; this means

that the Chromebooks become

invalid for Massachusetts

Comprehensive Assessment

System (MCAS) and other

testing, which is currently administered

via these devices.

Since the Chromebooks still

work after their expiration

date, Hoban said, they can still

be used for other non-testing

purposes. In the district, an average

of 130 Chromebooks expire

each year, which results in

them having to be replenished

by the district, she said.

Hoban said the district’s

plan is to purchase new

Chromebooks for students

entering the fifth and ninth

grades; this would allow four

years of life for each student’s

device at the middle- and highschool

level, she said.

The district also plans to hire

a new Chromebook inventory

manager, who would create

an inventory system with the

aim of ensuring students return

their devices to the school district

when they graduate.

Hoban said the technology

department has also implemented

a privacy plan; this

new database includes applications

on devices that are aimed

at securing privacy for students

using the technology. Parents

and guardians are required

to sign a Google document,

which permits teachers to use

these applications in school.

In other technology updates,

a new information-management

system, PowerSchool,

will be implemented in the

district by the 2022-23 school

year, Hoban said.

The Lynnfield football team

hung around with Newburyport

for the entire first half

Friday night on the road, but

Newburyport took advantage

of the Pioneers’ struggles in the

second half to hand Lynnfield a

34-6 loss.

The Clippers started out

strong when quarterback Finn

Sullivan found Grant Mosesian

on a 10-yard touchdown connection

late in the first quarter.

After Sullivan added the extra

point to make it 7-0, both offenses

Clippers took that 7-0 lead into

the halftime break.

Newburyport drove down

the field in less than two minutes

to start the third quarter,

scoring on Sullivan’s first TD

run. The Clippers then capped

their following possession

with another Sullivan scamper,

this one coming from the


The Pioneers did score to

make it a 19-6 game heading

into the fourth, but Sullivan

LYNNFIELD ― The seniors

on the Lynnfield Pioneers’ girls

soccer team rose to the occasion

on Wednesday night as they defeated

the Georgetown Royals


Lynnfield head coach Mark

Vermont said after the match that

his team met the challenge on their

home pitch.

“We put it all together tonight

so it was a good night to put it all

together on senior night,” he said.

Prior to the match, both sides’

seniors were honored. Lynnfield

will be saying goodbye to nine

seniors at the end of the year as

Samanth Bunar, Adriana Parisi,

Lexi Veglia, Abby Adamo,

Marissa Corvi, Lanah Rosenwald,

Anna Radulski, Lucy Cleary,

and Mariella Calvani will all be


Vermont said that this group

of seniors was made up of some

great kids.

“It’s been a long haul, last year

was crazy with COVID and this

year we are starting to put it together

so we will keep it rolling

hopefully and they worked hard

for it,” he said.

Georgetown seniors Rebecca

Doucette, Casey Mahoney,

Lauren Bartlett, Maggie Jackson,

Megan Skahan, Allison DeLuca,

and Emma Olsen were honored

before the match as well and head

coach Kevin Fair said that he has

a great group of seniors this year.

“I have great senior leadership,

two wonderful captains in

Rebecca Doucette and Casey

Mahoney,” he said. “They are

great leaders on the field (and) in

the classroom. (I’m) very blessed

to have a great senior class and

what was great is I got such a

young mix and they are great role

models for the younger kids.”

The excitement of senior night

was evident as both sides were

energized to start the match, but

struggled to control possession.

Senior captain and goalkeeper

Samantha Bunar showed her

prowess early as she made a

great save after coming off her

line and nearly left the box in the

ninth minute. Bunar was great

throughout the match, knowing

just when to come off of her line

and be aggressive.

The Pioneers nearly found

the back of the net courtesy of a

beautiful lofted shot from Anna

Radulski, but the shot graced over

the crossbar in the 11th minute.

Nearing the midway point of

the first half, Lynnfield created a

flurry of chances but was not able

to find the back of the net.

The scoring finally arrived in

the 27th minute as Parisi found the

back of the net, but the Lynnfield

lead didn’t last for long as sophomore

Olivia Hilts tied the game up

for the Royals with a goal less than

a minute later.

Parisi found her second goal of

the match in the 36th minute as,

even with a Georgetown defender

dragging her down, she was able

to power the ball into the bottom

of the net to give Lynnfield a 2-1

lead that they would carry into the

second half.

The senior nearly had a hat

trick as she burst away from defenders

in the 67th minute, but

Georgetown goalkeeper Mary

Surette made an impressive diving


The Pioneers were able to rack

up five corner kicks in the first ten

minutes of the half, but it took until

the 50th minute for them to convert;

freshman Emma Rose found

the ball at her feet in the box and

she was able to make it a 3-1 lead

for Lynnfield. Lynnfield wasn’t

done scoring, as it found the net

in the 60th minute and Calvani

later scored in an almost identical

situation. Corner kicks actually

ended up being kind to Lynnfield,

helping the team score four of its

six goals off of set pieces.

Adamo put the game away in

the last 10 minutes with the fifth

and sixth goal of the match going

to the Pioneers in what would cap

Lynnfield boys soccer team went

toe to toe with the top team in the

Cape Ann League Monday afternoon,

and while the Pioneers

put up a good fight, it just wasn’t

enough in a 1-0 loss on the road.

“Newburyport is always a

tough team to go against, and

we’ve had a great rivalry with

them over the past few years,”

said Lynnfield coach Brent

give a shout out to his defense for

how they played against a relentless

Newburyport attack.

The game was scoreless for

the first 25 minutes of play, with

Lynnfield’s defense putting up a

good fight against the Clippers.

But eventually things broke

down, and Newburyport finally

broke through with 16:22 to

play in the first half when Adam

Bovee found the back of the net

to make it 1-0.

The Pioneers continued to play

solid defense for the rest of the

game, but they were never able

to get any offensive momentum

going on the other end.

“We kept those guys off the

board for the most part, and they

were really putting the pressure

on,” said Munroe. “We had a

couple of chances to score, but

when you only get a couple of

chances then you’re going to

have a tough time generating any

real pressure.”

As the Pioneers now hit the

halfway point in the season,

Munroe feels great about where

his team sits as the state tournament

looms just a few weeks


“I think we’re sitting in a great

position right now,” said Munroe.

“We’ve gotten most of our tough

games out of the way, and the four

games we’ve lost have come to

undefeated Newburyport twice,

to undefeated Masconomet in

a non-league game and to a

top-10 team in the state in North

Andover. We’re battle-tested, and

to make a nice run to close the

One result of the global pandemic

and its long-term 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


“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


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,


“We envision, for example,

that our Wellness Pathways fall

prevention and health self-management

workshops will be offered

over the Uniper platform,

as well as group and individual

Support programs in a private, HIPAAcompliant

setting,” Parker Callahan

said, “This would be in addition to

virtual case manager visits with GLSS


UniperCare is an innovative, Israelibased

company with a West Coast U.S.

hub. Its programming is starting to pop

up all around the country, but GLSS is

its first Massachusetts-based 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 781-477-6702 or email

awallace@glss.net. More information
