The combined Swampscott/Marblehead Legion baseball team lost in the ninth inning, 8-3, to an undefeated Newburyport team.
The combined Swampscott/Marblehead Legion baseball team gave a powerful Newburyport team all it could handle on Sunday at the Forest Avenue diamond in Swampscott. Newburyport, 9-0 in their league and 12-0 overall, finally erupted for five runs on two homers in the top of the ninth to stay undefeated on the season. Prior to Sunday, the Newburyport team's pitching staff had given up only one unearned run in all nine league games, said Newburyport Manager Tim Southall. Swampscott/Marblehead Manager Tim Cassidy said his team competes well when they have a full squad, and that was evident Sunday against a very good opponent.

Sports are an important part of kids’ lives, not just for physical fitness, but for team building and social skills as well.
We all know that sports keep children active. Active children lead healthier lifestyles, as sports keep them moving, burning calories and give kids an option other than sitting in front of a screen. There’s no question that involving kids in sports from an early age is beneficial, but it can help in more ways than the physical. The Y, a leading nonprofit focused on youth development and healthy living, encourages healthy physical activity in children of all ages. Sports keep kids out of trouble, help them burn energy, and help them build confidence. “As a kid playing sports, I learned The Three “Ps”,” said Lynch/van Otterloo YMCA Sports Director, Emily Hudak. “We learned that being part of a sports team requires the three “Ps”… practice, …

Here are some scenes from an unseasonably warm October morning at the Marblehead Farmers' Market.
It may have been the unseasonably warm weather, it may have been the fresh local produce, but local residents turned out in droves to the Farmers' Market Saturday at Veterans Middle School. Here is a look at some of the scenes we found while walking around the market Saturday morning.
Members of Marblehead High School's field hockey team served coffee at the Farmers' Market Saturday, raising funds for sweatshirts, T-shirts and other team apparel.
Members of Marblehead High School's field hockey team, who are known for their hustle on the field, were hustling behind the coffee table at the Farmers' Market at Veterans Middle School Saturday morning. Head coach Linda Rice-Collins' team is 4-2-3 on the season and were putting in some hard work behind the counter in the hopes of raising enough money to buy sweatshirts, t-shirts and other team apparel. On Saturday, Rice-Collins had them working on their coffee skills, brewing up a fine cup of equal exchange French roast and other coffees. Many of them grabbed a cup, sat down and soaked up some of the unseasonably warm mid-October sun and listened to some jazz music being played at the market.

The local YMCA wants to thank Mary Orne for 30 years of service to the Marblehead community.
Mary Orne has worked at the YMCA for almost 30 years, and in that time has worked in every department. As of next week, Mary Orne will be headed to the South Shore Y, to tackle a new job and help them raise funds for a capital campaign. After 30 years, we want to share some of the fantastic work she has done. Orne has taught many of your children in the Early Learning Center, on Children’s Island and everywhere in between. She helped raise millions of dollars to build the new Y. She has connected our community in countless ways, and never stops trying to bring people together. “I want everyone to know how invaluable Mary Orne was in the eighteen years (1991 to 2009) that it took to build the Lynch/Van Otterloo YMCA, as she worked with Paul…
