My father said it early and often to me: “We come into this life with two gifts, love and energy,” and it has never been truer as I have just stepped into my 90th year on the planet, still working at my first love, seeking the magic, the mystery, the mastery in words.
Forget Wonder Woman — the real on-screen dynamo is Boston 25 News star Heather Hegedus.
The 1996 Lynnfield High graduate’s resume with an honors degree from Georgetown and master’s from Columbia speaks volumes, but her actions speak louder. The mom to 1-year-old Brooks gets up at 3 a.m. not to pull diaper duty but to leave for what is often a 12-hour workday as a weekend anchor and general assignment reporter for the Fox news station.
While the classic lyrics may claim “there ain’t no cure for the summertime blues,” we at One magazine are singing a different tune: Embrace the indigos, cobalts and denims, and snap up some cool-hued fashions to stylishly get through the late-summer months. Cool down your summer style with some of our favorite picks, available at local retailers in Lynn, Lynnfield, Peabody and Saugus.
50 years ago, beanball cut short Tony Conigliaro’s career
By STEVE KRAUSE
He had been in a slump. Tony Conigliaro, the 22-year-old kid who, earlier in 1967, had become the youngest player in American League history to reach the 100-homer mark, was in a rut and hadn’t hit one out in 10 days.
Hot dogs are a summer menu staple. Whether you dress your dog up with a simple stripe of yellow mustard and some relish, go formal with heaping piles of fancy gourmet toppings, or prefer to go naked, quite frankly – they’re delicious. If you have a hankering for a hot dog but don’t feel like firing up the grill, try one (or a few) of these tasty local takes on the summer classic.

As we were putting together this, the fourth edition of One, the Patriots were still weeks away from a Super Bowl victory, and Miss Massachusetts and Patriots cheerleader Julia Scaparotti of Peabody didn’t yet know she’d have another checkmark to add to the “W” column in what was already a banner year for her. Lynnfield native and sports fan extraordinaire Nick Varano — who was on a plane back from Houston — would surely agree.
And I’d bet Jim Quinlan was yelling at the television screen that Sunday just as emphatically as he coaches his own Bishop Fenwick icemen.
Inside, you’ll also read about Bruce McCorry, who’s been teaching martial arts for nearly 40 years; and actress Paula Plum, my fellow St. Mary’s/Lynn alum, who’s taken on one of her more challenging roles to date. Meaghan Casey explores a couple of my favorite places: the coffee shops of downtown
Lynn. Looking out my window, I can almost see (and smell) the freshly brewed cups at Land of a Thousand Hills across the street, and, at the other end of Munroe, is White Rose Coffeehouse. I prefer the Dirty Hot Chocolate there and the iced white mocha at Hills, in case
you care. I was equally pleased to read about the fries at Duckfat in Portland on the pages of One. Other than those and Flo’s hot dogs — and maybe a Polo outlet or two — I see no other reason to go to Maine.
One more food stuff inside: For me, the Battle of the Burrito is waged entirely on the Boloco front and it comes down to the Bangkok with chicken or the Cajun with steak and cheese.
Finally, if what I’ve been led to believe is true, orange is the new black. Orange, evidently, is also the old Beth Bresnahan. Or would that be the young Beth Bresnahan? At any rate, our CEO had some tanning issues in the past that would have made her the pride of Sunkist. See the photo on page 34 for proof. Thankfully, she’s discovered self-tanners.
Beth is One reason to read this edition. But don’t let me color your judgement.
They were runners, spectators, law enforcement personnel and track officials, and they had all gathered at the finish line of the 2013 Boston Marathon to celebrate the renewal of the oldest annual marathon in the world.
