Adam Khafif, a graduate of Oaklandvale Elementary School and Belmonte Middle School in Saugus, is making a difference in the world. The 22-year-old street fashion entrepreneur and his clothing line Lisn Up have been featured in Forbes, Huffington Post and other major publications.

We enter One Magazine’s second year of publication with some changes. The magazine itself is printed on a different stock with slightly altered page dimensions. It won’t mean much to you, the reader; but it’s a benefit to our advertisers because it enables us to increase circulation by inserting it into several newspapers produced by our parent company, Essex Media Group: Lynnfield Weekly News and Peabody Weekly News, and The Daily Item, which is distributed primarily in Lynn, Lynnfield, Malden, Marblehead, Medford, Nahant, Peabody, Revere, Saugus, and Swampscott.
Stephen Winslow of Malden has been carrying the torch for the Bike to the Sea initiative for more than 20 years. He has seen some communities rally and succeed in building nearly cost-free fitness trails while others struggled with the concept and the funding.
