hicles to bypass the queues of
those vehicles and reach Revere Beach Parkway (Route
16) westbound.
Additionally, they would
channelize the roadway on
the south side of the rotary through a combination
of pavement markings and
raised islands to remove the
weaving area between Mystic
View Road and Revere Beach
Parkway (Route 16) that, in
combination with new guide
signage and signal timing and
phasing adjustments, will improve traffic flow.
The improvements also include an enhanced, accessible pedestrian path along the
western and northern sides of
the rotary and across Santilli
Highway. The improvements
will also include landscape
amenities and added stormwater capacity.
The timeline for those improvements, however, will
have to be wrapped around
the larger Woods Memorial
Bridge replacement project
on Rt. 16. It is expected that
the mediation by Wynn would
take two construction seasons,
but would begin in the winter
of 2015.
“In the course of the continued design of the Santilli
Circle improvements, the Proponent will continue to work
with MassDOT, DCR, and
the City of Everett on a mutually acceptable schedule for
the construction of the Santilli
Circle improvements,” read
the filing.
Wynn indicated that all
concerns previously raised
by all agencies have been resolved with the new plan.
At Sweetser Circle – at
the end of Lower Broadway
– Wynn’s plan is similar to
Santilli.
The improvements include
implementing clear and recognizable pavement markings
and signage to guide motorists
through the rotary more efficiently, and formalizing rightturn lanes at all entrances to
the rotary so that motorists
may take the first exit from
the rotary without needing to
merge with circulating traffic.
These
improvements
are predicted to reduce the
amount of merging and diverging conflicts at the rotary,
which will improve efficiency
as well as significantly improving the safety of the rotary. The improvements also
include accessible sidewalks
along the outside of the rotary, walkways between legs
of the rotary, and accessible
crossings across all legs of the
intersection to facilitate pedestrian access.
As for Wellington Circle,
the traffic issues there have
been every bit as devastating
for years upon Everett as they
have been upon Medford.
Wynn proposed to provide
$1.5 million for a long-term
study done by the state to address a solution.
To address both current and
projected future operational deficiencies at Wellington
Circle, Wynn has collaborated
with MassDOT on a plan to
optimize traffic signal timing
and phasing and make certain geometric improvements
within the existing public
right-of-way. The geometric
improvements include providing an additional through
travel lane on both Route 16
approaches and an additional
left-turn lane on the Fellsway
(Route 28) northbound approach.
The improvements also include removing some paved
areas to create new green
space and planting new trees
to improve the streetscape.
The filings are now in a
public comment period and
have to get a final sign off
from the state’s Executive
Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs.

State shoots down Wynn plan
to clean Mystic with oysters, clams
By Seth Daniel
An intriguing and heralded
plan by Wynn Everett to help
clean up the Mystic River using beds of oysters and clams
has been scrapped at the behest of the state’s Division of
Marine Fisheries (DMF).
Apparently, state regulators are worried that the water-cleaning-only
bivalves
will be harvested illegally by
unknowing residents and then
eaten. That would likely make
them very sick, and therefore
do not meet the guidelines set
by the DMF.
“According to DMF's
growing guidelines, this project does not conform with
our current shellfish planting
guidelines,” said Amy Mahler
of the state’s Executive Office
of Energy and Environmental
Affairs. “The level of oysters
needed for this kind of restoration, in addition to concerns
of increased public health rick
due to citizens collecting the
planted oysters, we discourage this kind of project.”
The news was broken in
Wynn environmental filings
late last week.
“In response to the concerns of the Massachusetts
Division of Marine Fisheries,
the 30,000 square foot clam
and oyster seeding activities
previously proposed by the
Proponent have been eliminated from the Project,” read the
filing. “[Wynn] will contribute to improvements to water
quality in the Mystic River
through the remediation…
[Wynn] will continue to work
with the Mystic River Watershed Association and other in-
terested parties to advance the
restoration of aquatic resources in the immediate vicinity of
the Project Site.”
Wynn officials this week
had no direct comment on the
elimination of the innovative
shellfish water cleaning plans.
Some close to the project
did say that they aren’t 100
percent certain that the oyster
beds are gone for good. They
could, it is believed, make a
return to the project at a later
date.
Mahler said it isn’t the first
time that such an activity has
been proposed in Massachusetts by government or the
private sector. Each previous
time, the idea has also been
frowned upon.

Mayor Carlo DeMaria
caused a bit of controversy
last year, when he asked the
Council to consider taking the
Chief’s position out of Civil
Service, so that when he or
another Mayor in the future
has to pick a new chief, he
would have more freedom to
make that selection.
Part of Mayor DeMaria’s
reasoning at the time was
that no clear candidates were
evident among the firefighter
ranks and that senior officers
in the department had stopped
taking the Fire Chief’s test,
due to Butler’s expected continuing tenure in the job.
With the two new Deputy
Chiefs established, it is possible that a succession plan
would be more evident moving forward.
Police hire two new recruits
Not all of the good news
was reserved for the city’s fire
department on Monday night.
In addition to the six promo-
tions in the fire department,
the Everett Police Department
also got to celebrate the hiring
of two new patrol officers.
The Council voted unanimously, 9-0, to approve the
appointments of rookie patrol
officers John A. Fitzpatrick III
and Hayli Leal Hill.
The two new officers join
six other new recruits who
joined the Everett Police Department just last June.

in the FY 2016 budget. Since
the pay rates for all employees
of the council are set through
the budget process, there was
no need for a formal vote of
the full council prior to the
budget process.
If approved in the budget
process, the Clerk’s pay raise
would take effect with the
start of the new fiscal year on
July 1, 2015.
Lastly, a proposed and
much discussed pay raise for
Mayor Carlo DeMaria, to take
effect on January 1, 2016, was
tabled until the next meeting,
so that Councilor DiFlorio
could get some additional information to the Council about
the indexing mechanism in
the Mayoral raise proposal.
The proposal currently
calls for the Mayor’s salary to

slip and falls too. There have
also been several injuries related to snowblowers, cuts and
bruises. Of course there are
also many lower back injuries
and muscle strains that have
come in. There are actually a
lot of folks who have to shovel snow for their job and have
been injured in the course of
that. We’re definitely seeing
more of this kind of thing than
we normally do.”
Meanwhile, at the Whidden
Hospital Emergency Room,
the story is pretty much the
same.
“It’s definitely the case that
the snow storms have triggered more injuries here,” said
Dr. Joe Butash, of the Whidden ER. “We’ve really had a
lot of injuries involving children - slip and falls. However, it seems to have affected
young and old alike. I’ve seen
children 2 and 3 years old
with snow-related injuries and
adults up to age 92. Definitely,
there are a lot of injuries related to shoveling - wrist injuries
and back spams. The other
thing we've noticed is injuries
involving plows - individuals
struck by plows or those doing
the plowing. Even individuals

not directly involved in shoveling or working on the road
have had issues...We’ve even
seen people with dislocated
elbows.”
Agar of MGH added there
have been many motor vehicle
crashes that resulted in injuries that can also be attributed
to the snow.
“We’ve definitely had a lot
more car accidents,” he said.
“We’ve seen more of them
than normal. Certainly a lot
of people are coming in after
behind hit from behind by another car.”
But by and large, it’s the
shoveling injuries that have
filled the waiting rooms.
At Essential Chiropractic in
Revere, Dr. Anthony Gamble
said he has one great solution
for shoveling.
“There is no good way to
shovel,” he said. “The best
way we’ve found is to find
some young kid in the neighborhood and pay him to do it.
That’s the only way to avoid
injury. We only have to shovel
in a normal year for about two
weeks. We never get used to it
and don’t train our muscles for
it. So, we end up relying on our
lower back muscles instead of
our legs, which results in an
injury. The best advice is to
take your time. Do a little at a
time; take a break, and then go
back to do more. People tend
to want to just push through it
though and get it done. Even if
you do it the right way, you’re
going to feel it because you’re
using muscles you haven’t
used.”
Gambale said the treatment
for a sore back is contrary to
what many might think. The
common sense cure is an anti-inflammatory, like Motrin,
and a hot back or a hot pack.
Instead, Gamble said you have
to fight inflamed muscles with
- of all things - ice.
“When people are hurting
they want to put heat on it,” he
said. “The last thing they want
to do after coming in from the
cold is put ice on their back.
Ice is the best because the lower back muscles are inflamed.
As unappealing as it may be,
ice is the best way to fight inflammation. The anti-inflammatory and heat makes you
feel good for a bit, but it goes
right back. Bite the bullet and
put ice on it because if you
keep injuring it over and over,
you’ll end up with a permanent problem.”
He said the best way is to
apply ice for 10 to 20 minutes
intermittently.
Finally, of course, Gambale said the snow injuries and
aches are likely to drive a lot
of folks to his office, and he is
expecting a rush of patients in
the next few weeks.
“It does seem to be a good
re-activator for old patients,”
he said. “That’s what we’re
here for; to help people get
back on track. Right now, everybody is just trying to get
everyday stuff done, but the
slip and falls, the digging out
and the car accidents - that’s
going to take a few weeks.
You might feel like your fine
now, but in a good week or
two, the whole inflammation
sets in and the pain begins.
That’s usually when we begin
to see more patients.”

City receives help from NJ DOT and
National Guard for winter clean up
In the last several weeks,
the City has successfully battled several historic winter
storms. Facing a snowfall of
over 72.5 inches so far, with
drifts as high as six or seven
feet in some locations, the Department of Public Works has
tirelessly manned the streets
of Everett and continues to do
so in an effort to remove snow
in the interest of public safety.
Sixty pieces of snow removal equipment, both Cityowned and contracted vehicles, are still in circulation.
Dozens of crews, are working coordinated split-shifts,
utilizing the plows, sanders,
bobcat front end loaders, and
sidewalk plows to ensure the
safety of the City’s main arteries, side streets and sidewalks.
In the days following the most
recent storms DPW worked
diligently both plowing and
coordinating snow removal. With the snow banks and
drifts still a public safety concern, crews continue to work
nights, seven days a week,
to remove snow to the best
of their ability in an attempt
to make streets wider so that
they are safer and more accessible.
“During this period of unprecedented weather, the City
is working day and night to
move and clear snow from
Two members of the National Guard shovel out a fire hydrant in

streets,” states Mayor DeMaria, “It is an arduous task
and will take time and patience. I want to thank residents for their cooperation
and hard work this winter.
Throughout the City I have
seen residents helping each
other by shoveling out elderly
neighbors and fire hydrants.
And of course I also want
to thank our DPW crews for
their unyielding effort to keep
our roads as clear and safe as
possible. Their job is not easy
and they deserve recognition
for a tireless, and often thankless, job.”
A true team effort, several
departments are essential in
assisting DPW with the repercussions of the record breaking amount of snow. The
Police, Fire, Emergency 911,
Parking Enforcement and
Code Enforcement departments all continue to work
alongside DPW during their
clean up efforts. More recently, the state, through the Governor’s Office and MEMA,
has sent trucks and members
of the National Guard, as well
as trucks and crews from New
Jersey’s Department of Transportation to assist Everett with
snow removal, as well.
The National Guard is
working with our Fire Department digging out and flushing hydrants to assure their
accessibility in case of emergencies. A team from New
Jersey, manning front-end
loaders and skid steers, has
been assisting our own DPW
crews, tackling several side
streets throughout the city,
yielding curb to curb removal. As a result of these efforts,
several tons of snow have
been removed and taken to the
snow farm, as well as dumped
in parks, such as Florence
Street and Lynde Street.
“While we have made
significant progress fighting
storms and snow accrual, we
still have a lot of winter left to
go,” states Mayor DeMaria,
“the best way to get through
it is to continue to work cooperatively as a community
and remember that we are all
in this together. I ask for residents to remain patient and to
follow snow regulations both
during and after storms.”
Senator DiDomenico brings colleagues to Everett as
part of the Senate’s Commonwealth Conversations Tour
Senator Sal DiDomenico recently joined State Secretary of
Energy and Environmental Affairs, Matthew Beaton, Representative Roselee Vincent and Representative Joseph McGonagle
at Chelsea City Hall for the announcement of the new Park and
Planning Assessment Tool for Gateway Cities throughout the
Commonwealth. Cities using this tool will be able to make more
informed decisions when applying for state and federal grant
programs, and when making plans for capital improvements. Chelsea and Worcester have been chosen as the two test sites
before it is rolled out to all the Gateway Cities.

The sixth of eight Commonwealth
Conversations
tours crossing the state comes
to metro Boston on March
4th. Senators Sal DiDomenico, Will Brownsberger, Sonia
Chang-Díaz, Linda Dorcena
Forry, Pat Jehlen, and Anthony Petruccelli will tour
schools, local businesses, redevelopment sites, Massport,
and a union apprenticeship
program. The day will culminate with a public town hall
event at Roxbury Community
College to listen to the concerns of residents throughout
the Senators’ districts. Joining
the tour will be Senate President Stan Rosenberg and
Senate Minority Leader Bruce
Tarr, and other senators from
across the state.
The tour begins at Brighton High School with a panel
on education, transportation,
and economic development.
The public is invited to attend
this forum from 9:00 to 10:15
a.m. The tour continues with
a drive through Beacon Park
Yards, the site of the Allston
I-90 Interchange Improvement Project. Senators will
then visit the energy tech incubator Greentown Labs in
Somerville; hear from the
Somerville Community Corporation Community Organizers Team on workforce development; view development
sites in Union and Assembly
Squares; have lunch at the
student-run Crimson Café at
Everett High School and tour
the school; view development
sites along lower Broadway;
receive a briefing at Massport
in East Boston; visit The New
England Regional Council
of Carpenters apprenticeship
program in Dorchester; take
a dinner stop at a local restaurant; and end the day with the
two-hour public town hall forum at Roxbury Community
College’s Media Arts Center
beginning at 6:30 p.m.
“It’s great to have the opportunity to travel to different
areas of the Commonwealth
to hear the issues and concerns that are important to the
residents of those communities,” said Senator Sal DiDomenico. “The information
that we gather on this tour
will help us craft legislation to
make changes where they are
needed most.”
“With our statewide Commonwealth
Conversations
Tour we hope to hear directly from the people of the
Commonwealth about how
we can help improve their
lives through our work in the
Senate,” said President Stan
Rosenberg. “We hope these
conversations will help us
craft our agenda and engage
the public in the good work
that we hope to accomplish
this legislative session.”
The Commonwealth Conversations Tour is a statewide
tour of Senate districts led by
the local senators to reach out
to local residents, businesses,
and interest groups to listen
directly to their needs and
concerns with the hope that it
will foster more civic engagement while helping each senator learn more about issues
outside of their own districts.
Each member of the Senate
has committed to attending
at least two of these sessions
outside of their own region
that is not an adjoining district
to their own. The tours began
February 4th and run through
March 18th. All members of
the public are encouraged
to participate. Written testimony can be submitted at a
public forum or through the
tour website at the Talk to the
Tour tab. To learn more about

FREEDOM TRAIL SCHOLARS VISIT PARLIN SCHOOL
Thanks to sponsorship from
Distrigas of Massachusetts,
Everett’s Parlin School will be
the third school served by the
Freedom Trail® Foundation
Scholars Program during their
visit on Thursday, February 5,
at 8:55 a.m. and 10:20 a.m., at
587 Broadway Street. Since
2009, Distrigas of Massachusetts’ support of the City of
Everett program has provided the opportunity for all five
City of Everett schools to take
part in this interactive history
program that strives to bring
the American Revolution to
life in the classroom.
The Scholars Program
brings the spirit and fervor of
our nation’s historic fight for
freedom into schools through
a one-hour traveling interactive class. Two actors take on
multiple roles to bring major
events of the American Revolution to life in the classroom. Since its inception,
over 23,500 students have
seen and been involved in the
program: interacting with the
performers, reading portions
of important documents and
declarations, and taking part
in the reenactment of histor-
ic events such as the Boston
Massacre, Boston Tea Party,
and Paul Revere’s Midnight
Ride. Participating educators
have access to the Scholars Program resource guide,
which includes lesson plans
and quizzes to help evaluate
the effectiveness of the program.
Nancy Adams, a teacher at
the Mountain View School in
East Longmeadow, called the
program a “great introduction
to our unit on the Revolutionary War.”
“Kids understood difficult
concepts through the entertaining/informative presentation,” she said. “Presenters
were fabulous! They were
engaging and able to sustain
the interest of 8-year-olds.
Students came back to the
room excited about what they
learned and eager for more!”
The Scholars Program will
make many exciting visits
during the 2014–2015 school
year with additional support
from John Hancock Financial,
One Step Forward Education
Foundation, the Massachusetts Society of the Cincinnati,
and Yawkey Foundation. Sup-

The Everett High Crimson Tide basketball team met
what has become a newfound rival in Lynn English
last Friday night, losing a hard-fought game by a score
of 92-81.
The Everett team is now off to the state tournament,
where they drew a first-round game against Billerica.
The results of that game came too late for Independent
deadlines, but were Everett to win, they would again
face Lynn English.

First Baptist Church
News and Notes
We are in the church season
known as Lent. It is a period
of self-denial and preparation.
We deny ourselves certain
things in order to get closer to
God. Some Christians make
a decision to fast—denying
themselves food in order to
spend more time with God
and nourish their souls spiritually through prayer and the
reading of God's Word.
We also prepare for the
Easter season by praying,
meditating, and reflecting on
the sacrifice that Jesus made
for us and His subsequent resurrection from the dead.
The family and friends of
First Baptist observed Ash
Wednesday by having a day
of prayer and fasting. We have
decided to fast and pray every
Wednesday. Last Wednesday our prayers and thoughts
centered on World Hunger.
This week we are focusing on
World Peace and the end to
terrorism. Please use wisdom
and common sense if you decide to fast. Don't do anything
that would be detrimental to
your health.
This Sunday I will begin a
series of sermons on God and
His covenant names that will
continue until Palm Sunday.
It is also Communion Sunday
and I invite you to join with
us.
May our Lord richly bless
you!
As Christians we believe
that Jesus (which means Sav-
ior) and Christ (which means
Messiah) and that he is the
Lord of Lords and the King of
Kings.
He holds a special place in
the hearts of Christians because of all that he has done
for us. He is our Lord, Savior,
healer, deliverer—He is everything to us.
We invite you to join with
us at 10:30 Sunday morning
as we worship our Lord and
Savior.
May the Lord's richest
blessings be yours during this
wonderful time of the year
and throughout the new year.

Freedom In Christ Gospel Outreach
News and Notes
Greetings from the desk
of Pastor Larry at Freedom In
Christ.
Revival is a word we often
use but don't always understand. I believe if we want
revival in our churches then
we need to yield control to
the Holy Spirit. For too long
we have looked for revival
with limited success because
we did it our way. Where the
Spirit of the Lord is, there is
liberty. If we let the Spirit of
God take over we will see
those great things that only
God can do.
Revival is not only needed in the churches and in the
body of Christ, it is also needed in each individual. If each
of us seeks out revival for our
own souls, just imagine the
results. Revival, seek it, desire it, pray for it and see what

Getting Out
‘Intimate Apparel’
By Sheila Barth
[email protected]
After a week of being
snowbound and pummeled
with damaging ice and snow,
I treated myself to the Saturday matinee of Lyric Theatre’s
production of Lynn Nottage’s
touching play, “Intimate Apparel”.
It is, indeed, a huge treat.
Every facet of this two-act
play gleams on its own dramatic, artistic power, thanks to
Director Summer L. Williams’
sensitivity, creative flair, and
knowledge, along with her
fantastic atmosphere-setting
crew, including lighting designer Chris Hudacs, sound
designer Kelsey, Jarboe and
Music Director Stephanie
LaBolt’s period piano musical
interludes between scenes.
Nottage has a divine gift for
writing magnificent plays, especially about African-American women and their compromising situations throughout
the eras.
In her blockbuster, Pulitzer,
multi-award winning play,
“Ruined,” Nottage exposed
the rape and carnage women
endured in the Congo. In “By
the Way, Meet Vera Stark,”
she explored the undermining of and prejudice against
African American actresses,
who were reduced to playing
“Mammy” or maid-style subservient roles.
In “Intimate Apparel,” she
tackles another lofty topic the situation of Esther Wells,
a plain-looking, unmarried,
35-year-old African-American woman, who, in 1905,
sews and creates exquisite
intimate apparel for women
of all walks of life. But she
secretly dreams about opening her own beauty salon for
women of color. After leaving
her farm home in North Carolina at age 17, and living in a
Manhattan women’s boarding
house under the kindly care of
landlady Mrs. Dickson (talented Boston actress Cheryl D.
Singleton) since then, Esther
spends every day, working at
her Singer machine. Saying
she’s too homely for anyone
to marry, Esther concentrates
on working, stashing her earnings in her bed quilt, waiting
for that magic moment when
she’ll open her salon.
Portraying self-conscious
Esther, Lindsey McWhorter
is so convincing, one has the
feeling she has channeled an
Esther-type ancestor. In scenes
with marvelous Nael Nacer,
portraying Orthodox Jewish
fabrics merchant, Mr. Marks,
the duo is heart-wrenching.
He is awaiting a bride, (in his
family-arranged
marriage),
to arrive from his native
Roumania, but he clearly admires Esther and her amazing
knowledge of and attention
to finest, imported silk, satin,
wool, brocade, lace, and other
fabrics.
The two are shy, gentle,
falling in love with each other, but they politely maintain
their distance, mindful of their

differing traditions. As an Orthodox Jew, Marks can’t allow
another woman to touch him,
excluding his wife - when or
if he marries. Also, Esther is
acutely aware of her lowly
place in life.
Mr. Marks’ tender kindnesses to Esther are thwarted
by her chance correspondence
with a handsome, muscular Barbados native named
George Armstrong (Brandon
G. Green) working on the
Panama Canal. Although Esther can’t read or write, she is
assisted by her wealthy, bored,
childless, white customer,
Mrs. Van Buren, (Amanda
Ruggiero), who eagerly writes
Esther’s responses to the lonely, hardworking, flowery-writing gentleman. Even though
Van Buren has looks and luxury, she lacks the love and devotion she craves.
In fact, each character’s
role twists and turns, revealing another facet of his and
her personality, wants, desires,
and intentions, not necessarily
noble, yet gut-wrenching. Set designer Anne Sherer
cleverly created an upper-level nook for Marks’ fabric shop
above the stage, on a righthand platform, while George’s
contrasting, weatherbeaten,
wharf space is on the upper
left platform. The stage is
nicely decorated with early
1900‘s, period furnishings deep red drapes, a bed centrally located, a piano in the back
right rear, and a desk upstage,
that doubles for Esther’s sewing machine and a writing
desk. Amanda Mujica’s costumes clearly define the era,

its garb, and this cross-section
of humanity. George seems to be any
woman’s ideal mate. He’s
handsome, strong, hardworking, sweet-talking, and attentive; but three months after his
and Esther’s wedding, and being unable to get steady work,
he changes. Was he too good
to be real? Was he a cad all
along? Green keeps us rapt,
wondering.
Then, too, there’s Esther’s
prostitute friend, Mayme,
who plays the piano and sings
well, but gave up looking for
love a long time ago, knowing
she’s unacceptable to gentlemen-type fellows. Kris Sidberry as Mayme is confident,
yet tragic. She damns herself
with her illicit behavior and
ruins Esther’s life unknowingly. Each character’s personality is clearly visible, from
Esther and Mrs. Dickson’s
modest clothing to Mayme’s
tawdry garb, Mrs. Van Buren’s luxury lingerie, Mr.
Marks’ ethnic clothing, and
the sexy, bejeweled corsets
and bustiers Esther creates.

Brandon G. Green is enticing, charming, as George,
especially during his wedding
scene with Esther, as the two
shyly, self-consciously gaze at
each other, as a photographer
snaps their picture. Their projected image is highlight on a
panel, labeled, “an unidentified Negro couple, ca.1905.”
Although “Intimate Apparel” focuses on a plain-looking,
uneducated woman who wants
to make herself and others feel
beautiful, the interweaving of
these characters, their flawed
personalities, their unrequited
love and dreams, is a lovely,
tenderly drafted tale.
The only flaw is dialect
coach Bryn Austin’s attempt
to reflect the Melting Pot’s
many accents, making it difficult to capture some character’s words. George’s melodic Caribbean cadence and
Marks‘ Roumanian accent are
charming, but Mrs. Dickson’s
and Esther’s Southern dialect
is difficult at times for us Yankees to distinguish. However, their body language rings out loud and clear,
touching our souls.

Poppe hopes to bring the Soldiers Home back to the center of the community
By Seth Daniel
When Cheryl Poppe took
the top office at the Chelsea
Soldiers Home on a temporary basis last April, and then
permanently last September,
people kept calling her ‘Commandant.’
After all, that was and had
been the proper title for the
leader of the long-time veterans home.
However, it didn’t sit right
with Poppe.
It just didn’t fit her and
what she believed her mission
to be at the Home.
So she changed it.
Now, everyone just calls
her the superintendent.
But a title change won’t
be the last thing she changes at the revered, 133-yearold, facility on the hill. She's
looking for a cultural change,
an analysis of the current services and an eye to the future
of veterans services - while
at the same time reinvigorating the image of the home in
the communities of Chelsea,
Charlestown, Everett and Revere.
“I am trying to re-integrate
the Soldiers Home of Chelsea as a leading facility and a
community leader,” she said
in a recent interview.
Poppe came to the job
last year at the direction of
then-Veterans Secretary Coleman Nee. She had been in the
ROTC at University of Rhode
Island - and had grown up in
Rhode Island in a decidedly
military family. She was commissioned to the Massachusetts Army National Guard
after graduation and served
there for 30 years, rising to
the rank of colonel. She retired in 2008 from the Guard
and began working to help
reintegrate soldiers into the
community, a position that
New Superintendent Cheryl Poppe of the Chelsea Soldiers
Home officially became the new leader of the facility last
September and is ready to lead the revered Home into the 21st
Century this year. She is pictured here in the new dining hall
along with an historic installation on the Soldiers Home that
was created and installed by a resident last fall.
transferred seamlessly into a
job at the state’s Department
of Veterans Services.
She became the chief of
staff there and a deputy secretary, and received her mission
from Nee just last year.
Within that mission, Poppe
inherited a proud community
institution that had fallen on
hard times. Not only within its
aging infrastructure, but also
within the communities that
had for so long supported the
home - communities that had
kind of forgotten about the
home as it had all-but-stopped
in its outreach and participation at local events.
In all ways, including within the State Budget, the Chelsea Soldiers Home was at a
crossroads.
Now, however, Poppe said
she can see a very bright light
at the end of the tunnel that
will come into much better
focus once a commissioned
report is made public later this
winter. The report, prepared
by the Long-Term Care Com-
mission established in the Valor Act, will lead the way for
the state on how it creates and
funds services at places like
the Solider Home in Chelsea.
With an eye to the future, the
report is expected to create a
map that Poppe and other Veterans Services leaders will be
able to follow to help meet the
changing needs of veterans young, old, male and female
- in the future.
Poppe said she can see the
Chelsea home focusing on
things like adult day care, assisted living and bringing in
more families.
“This report will help us
define what kind of services
we are going to need and what
kind of facilities are they going to need,” said Poppe. “I
believe the needs are going to
be more of a reliance on adult
day care, assisted living and
living space for families. We
have only single vets here and
no families. There is a whole
variety of services that will be
of need here and that we’ll be

I’m impressed with in Chelsea
and the communities around
us - including Revere, Everett, East Boston, Charlestown
- is that these communities are
working really well around
Veterans Services…The concern has been this is where
you come and this is where
you stay for life. There ought
to be more to it than that. I
think we really need to help
our veterans who want to live
and can live in the community
to get back to the community. We need to help them do
that by meeting their challenges with things like legal
services, therapy and teaching
them how to be in the world
post service. We really want
to try to navigate the veterans
to the services that can help
them. Of course, a lot of that
is when you build community
and collaborate, you have to
reach out. We look forward to
working with the community
groups as much as possible."
For those who want to call
the Soldiers Home their home,
Poppe said they have already
started some unique programs
in concert with local community groups - including
the Boy Scouts, Girls Scouts
and even music programs via
students at Berklee School of
Music.
“The power of such things
was really on display when
we had that group caroling
on Dec. 23,” said Poppe. “I
can’t tell you how powerful
it was to see some of the vets
who were sitting quietly and
then started singing along to
‘Hark the Herald Angels.' It
was powerful, and these are
the things that happen and can
happen here all the time.”
Poppe said one of the music therapy classes for residents is on track to start a Soldiers Home band - a first for
the facility.
Additionally, the old audi-
torium that was slated to become office space, has now
been returned to the residents
as an auditorium instead.
Poppe said the residents
wanted a place to hold meetings, to watch movies and to
gather. So, instead of following the plan to make the historic auditorium into offices,
she put some money into refurbishing it and getting new
chairs and a modern projector.
Residents were even able
to gather there to watch the
New England Patriots march
to the Super Bowl.
“We decided that it just
couldn’t be office space,” said
Poppe. “That auditorium is
for the residents and the veterans and returning it to them
has worked well.”
The subject of the auditorium brings up the subject of
the aging buildings that dot
the campus of the Soldiers
Home. Most were built in either 1882 or 1890 and their
age shows.
Poppe pointed out that
some improvements have
been made, including a new
cafeteria and kitchen area,
new fire safety sprinklers,
and a life safety improvement
program also - not to mention
some efficiency projects like
new windows and roof-top
solar panels.
However, there is much
more to do, and what gets
done and how it will get done
largely depends on what the
Commission decides in its upcoming report.
“It’s an aging infrastructure,” she said. “The buildings
are solid, but the infrastructure needs to be updated…
Right now, I just feel very
fortunate we have so many
veterans organizations and
community groups that want
to and that come out to help
us. That’s something we can
really build on."

able to offer.”
A focus, also, she believes,
will be on increasing services
for women. Women, in large
part, have not been included
in the Soldiers Home repertoire over the years, with most
people always referring to
“the guys” up at the Soldiers
Home. Poppe said that will,
and must, change over time.
“One of the things I would
like to do is expand our services for women in our longterm care,” she said. “Women
veterans are the fastest growing population. They represent 7.5 percent of the veteran population and 20 percent
of all recruits. Now that the
military has opened up some
combat positions, women will
likely make up an even larger population of the veterans.
We need to adapt our service
to meet these needs.”
Part of the effort will also
be reaching out to communities and local resources to
help veterans, if they chose,
get back into the community. Poppe said the stress is on
outreach at the Soldiers Home
right now and collaborating
with local Veterans Agents
and community organizations. She said they have been
working with legal services
agencies, the Veterans Administration, CAPIC, Chelsea’s City Navigators, UMass-Boston, North Suffolk
Mental Health, Mass General,
East Boston Neighborhood
Health Center and a host of
other groups. The hope is
that soldiers who wish to reintegrate into the community
can do so with help provided
by the Soldiers Home and its
partners.
“One goal I see is expanding programming to our veterans here, but also to get
the veterans back out in the
community if they want to
do that,” she said. “One thing

NEW ENGLAND E
BAND ASSOCIATION
CHAMPIONSHIP!
verett High School held a banquet at Anthony's in Malden honoring
the Crimson Tide Marching Band for winning the New England
Scholastic Band Association Championship this past fall. The Band
completed an undefeated season, scoring a season high 96.30, and
sweeping all caption awards — winning Best Music, Best Color Guard
and Best Percussion — during its NESBA victory. The Crimson Tide
program, “Letters Home”, captured the essence of immigration and the
pride in assimilation into American society. The show featured the music
of legendary composer, Aaron Copland, including Appalachian Spring,
which debuted 70 years ago at the Library of Congress in Washington,
D.C. The result was an engaging production, universally received and
acclaimed by adjudicators and audiences alike. The band is directed by
Charles Poole.
