Schilling gives tip of the hat to Endicott College


Flaherty and Healey played the role of Beverly state Rep. Jerry Parisella as they went through the process of how a bill is passed.

“It was an exceptionally realistic experience, and when it came time to vote, I felt as if I was voting on the real bill,” Flaherty said in an email.

On the move

As the multiple signs on the door of Marino’s Cafe make clear, the Rantoul Street eatery is closed — but not for good.

Owners Anthony Marino and Victoria Farnsworth say they plan to eventually reopen in a new location in Beverly, possibly on Cabot Street. In the meantime, they’re concentrating on Lime Rickey’s, their seasonal business on Devereux Beach in Marblehead.

Healthy eating

Beverly Bootstraps has been awarded a $4,500 grant from The Women’s Fund of Essex County.

The money will allow Bootstraps to continue its Cooking Matters Program for the next three years. The program offers classes to teach families how to make healthy meals on a budget.

The Women’s Fund has awarded more than $825,000 to nonprofit programs in Essex County since its inception in 2003 to address women’s issues such as economic self-sufficiency, leadership and empowerment, and health and well-being.

Not biting

Frank Kaminski has already scooped up one prominent downtown site by buying the Casa de Moda buildings. So, we figured we’d ask Oprah’s favorite auctioneer if he’d consider buying the Cabot Cinema.

“I’m biting off a lot right now,” he said. “I have a big project now on top of everything that I’m doing. I’m all over America traveling. I love the theater, but I have a lot to do. That’s a huge undertaking.”
