Today is Monday, Oct. 15. Here are five things to know in Peabody today.
- Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren will be in Peabody today, making a campaign stop at Brooksby Village. To the best of our knowledge here at Patch, this is the first time Warren has traveled to Peabody during her campaign to unseat incumbent Sen. Scott Brown, although Warren was in Beverly Aug. 30 to receive an endorsement from Mayor Bill Scanlon. Brown stopped in the Tanner City most recently two-and-a-half weeks ago at Brooksby Village as well to chat with seniors. Warren plans to arrive at Brooksby at 1:30 p.m. and discuss her efforts to protect existing commitments to older Americans and strengthen critical programs such as Medicare and Social Security. From there, she heads to Boston for a roundtable discussion with members of the Disability Policy Consortium.
- The deadline to register to vote in the Nov. 6 general election is Oct. 17. If you know you'll be out of town on Election Day, you can receive an absentee ballot from the City Clerk's office. Here's what you need to know.
- Tanners' sports update: Peabody girls' soccer is 11-0-0 after defeating Swampscott as well Friday. Saturday's game with Concord-Carlisle, however, was cancelled again due to the rain. A makeup date is TBA. Meanwhile, boys' soccer is 7-2-3, both boys' and girls' cross country are respectively unbeaten at 6-0 and 5-0, volleyball is 10-1, field hockey is 6-3-3 and golf is 8-4. Football, now with Matt O'Brien at the helm continues to struggle, but put up a good fight against Revere on Friday, 42-24. The Tanners, 0-6, host Masconomet this week.
- Ricey's Run: More than 100 motorcycles and riders wound their way through Peabody, Lynnfield, Middleton and Danvers and back to the Italian-American Citizen's Club on Blaney Street Saturday in a show of respect for fallen Peabody firefighter Jim Rice. Check out our photo gallery here.
