Heard Around Town: A council president as good as Gould

The band also accompanied the high school chorale, led by Jon Simmons, in a stirring rendition of “The Star-Spangled Banner.”

Reporting for duty

Sen. John Kerry is expected to take the office of secretary of state. Kerry’s friend and fellow Vietnam vet Mike Schulze is delighted.

“I may go down to see John sworn in,” he says. Kerry is the type of guy who can keep the country out of war, according to Schulze.

Not without principals

The Peabody schools could use a few more principals, including at the high school, Carroll School and South School.

In these days of high unemployment, Superintendent Joe Mastrocola reports that there are 39 applicants for South School and 38 for Carroll School. On the other hand, only 13 applicants have come forward requesting the top job at Peabody High School.

Screening committees are expected to reduce the number of applicants to a handful of finalists in three to five weeks, Mastrocola says. He wants the three principals appointed by March 5 and on the job July 1. The superintendent has the last word on hiring.

Mastrocola downplays the relatively small numbers applying at the high school.

“It’s not unusual,” he says, adding that there are currently a great many high school principal vacancies in the region.
