Congratulations to John Hall for winning Beverly Main Streets’ latest banner design contest. More than 50 banners with Hall’s design will be installed on light poles on Cabot, Rantoul and Elliott streets.
Hall owns the John Hall Design Group on Rantoul Street. He’s also the guy who designed the panther seal on the lobby floor at Beverly High School.
Fred Butler, the 106-year-old man who received an honorary diploma at Beverly High the other day, is an avid follower of local news and recognized most of the officials who attended his ceremony.
But when he didn’t seem to know Joan Lovely, the new state senator gave him a pretty good description.
“I’m the new Fred Berry,” she said.
Not a crook
Our recent item about the Trashfinder’s Ball requires a rather unusual correction.
Trashfinder’s Ball guru Sean Devlin had described one of the recent winning entries as a Richard Nixon mask with a Pinocchio nose. Sandy Currier, its owner, tells us that it’s actually a mask of a fertility god.
Sure looks like Tricky Dick, though.
Looking for Lucy
Have you been following the search for Lucy the lost dog?
The Beverly Police Department has posted information on its Facebook page about Lucy, a 4-year-old Lab mix who went missing from her Ryal Side home last week.
The posting has generated more than 240 “shares” and lots of comments from people trying to find her.
