SAUGUS Vol. 23, No. 2 -FREE- www.advocatenews.net Published Every Friday Open Meeting Law Violation School Committee held an improper executive session to discuss privatizing school custodians 781-233-4446 Friday, January 10, 2020 2019: Year in Pictures By Mark E. Vogler or the third time in two years, the state Attorney General’s Division of Open Government has cited the Saugus School Committee for violating the Open Meeting Law. “Following our review, we fi nd that the Committee violated the Open Meeting Law by holding an executive session on May 8 (2019) without a proper purpose and failing to follow proper procedures for convening in executive session,” Assistant Attorney General Elizabeth Carnes Flynn wrote in a nine-page determination issued Dec. 31, 2019. “Because the Committee convened in executive session without a proper purpose and without following proper convening procedure, we order the Committee, within 30 days of this letter, to publicly release the May 8 executive session minutes. The Committee may not redact or withhold any portion of the minutes.” F ANOTHER VIOLATION: A recent determination by the state Attorney General’s Offi ce of Open Government cited the former School Committee for holding an improper executive session last May 8. (Saugus Advocate fi le photo by Mark E. Vogler) “In addition, we order all members of the Committee to review the Attorney General’s Open Meeting Law training video concerning executive sessions, available online at https://www.mass. gov/service-details/open-meeting-lawtraining-videos, and to certify to our offi ce in writing that they have done so. We order immediate and future compliance with the Open Meeting Law and caution that future similar violations may result in a fi nding of an intentional violation, including the imposition of a monetary fi ne. See G.L. c. 30A, § 23(c)(4).” The School Committee intended to meet in an Executive Session on May 8 “for the purpose of Collective Bargaining with the Custodians and The Superintendent's Contract,” according to the agenda notice posted for the meeting. Instead, a discussion involving the committee and Superintendent Dr. David DeRuosi, Jr. focused on how the School Department could save money by privatizing custodial services – a subject that should have been discussed publicly and not behind closed doors – which violated the Open Meeting Law. However, the latest Open Meeting Law violation by the School Committee didn’t aff ect the committee’s decision to replace 21 school custodians with a private maintenance company. None of the current members were on the School Committee when the violations occurred.

Materese, had planned to return to work with the Town had his health improved. But nearly a year after he was stricken with an illness that kept him from his job, Materese, 68, died on Tuesday at Tufts Medical Center in Boston. “Ralph was a great guy, he treated the Town Buildings as if they were his own,” Board of Selectmen Chair Anthony W. Cogliano, Sr. emailed in a statement this week to The Saugus Advocate. “He was available 24 hrs a day and could handle any of the trades. Shoveling snow, electrical work, plumbing and carpentry....Ralph did it all, and he did it with a smile,” Cogliano said. “I wish I had the opportunity to recognize him for his 24 dedicated years of service to Saugus.

Born in Boston and raised in Melrose, Materese was a graduate of Melrose High School and had just celebrated his 50th class reunion. Materese leaves his wife, Donna M. (Bono) Materese – they were married for 33 years –and his mother and his two children, Ginamarie Materese and Ralph Materese, Jr., both of Melrose, along with his two grand-pups, Saco and River. Calling hours are scheduled from 4 to 8 p.m. today in the Bisbee-Porcella Funeral Home (549 Lincoln Ave., Saugus). A funeral will be held from the funeral home tomorrow (Saturday) at 9 a.m. followed by a funeral mass in Blessed Sacrament Church (14 Summer St., Saugus) at 10 a.m. Burial will be in Wyoming Cemetery in Melrose. In lieu of fl owers, donations in his memory can be made to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital (www.stjude.org). “He’s one of the greatest bosses I’ve had in my life,” custodian Chris Tully said in an interview last year, shortly after Materese was stricken with health problems. “If you needed a shirt, he’d give the shirt right off his back. And when he goes on vacation, he worries about the town “A GREAT GUY”: Ralph M. Materese, who worked for the Town of Saugus for nearly 24 years, passed away this week (Courtesy Photo to The Saugus Advocate) so much that he calls every day,” Tully said. “He was so concerned about the snowstorm we got Sunday that he talked to somebody about coming back and helping.” Many town residents and admirers left note of condolences on the funeral home website this week. “He was a wonderful man, full of kindness coupled with a genuinely helpful nature. His gentlemanly attitude and smile will be missed,” former Saugus School Committee Member Linda Gaieski wrote. Debra Dion Faust, House Manager of the American Legion Post 210, wrote, “Ralph was a great town employee who always took good care of our needs quickly and effi - ciently.” “I’m sure we will not be the only ones to miss his smile and his capabilities,” she wrote.          •   •   •         

THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, January 10, 2020 Page 3 Miracle on Ice By Th e Old Sachem, Bill Stewart A lmost 40 years ago we watched the U.S. team in the Winter Olympics play in Lake Placid, N.Y., as they brought home the Gold Medal in 1980. The U.S. team was made up of exclusively amateur players against a Soviet team, who were mostly professionals. The Soviet team had won the Gold Medal in fi ve of the six previous Olympics and were heavy favorites to win this one. Czechoslovakia was the second favorite, followed by Finland and Canada. In the 1960 Olympics the Soviets captured the Bronze Medal. From 1964 on, the Soviets won 27 games suffered a single loss and a single tie. They were the heavy favorites to repeat. In the exhibition season of 1980, the Soviet team won fi ve, lost three and tied one against National League hockey clubs. A year earlier the Soviets had walloped the NHL All-Stars six to zip to win the Challenge Cup. The Soviets had a roster of Boris Mikhailov (right wing and captain) and Vladislav Tretiak (goaltender) – ranked as two of the top players in the world. Many of the players became NHL players after the Olympics. The team included Valeri Kharmalov (speedy goal scorer), Viacheslav Fetisov (an outstanding defenseman) and Sergei Makarov. Tretiak, Kharlamov, and Makarov eventually were voted into the Hockey Hall of Fame. The other nations protested the Soviets’ use of full-time players, while many nations, including the United States and Canada, relied on amateurs, chiefl y college players. The Canadians withdrew from the 1972 and 1976 hockey Olympics because of the inequality of the Soviet teams in relation to the other teams. The average age of the U.S. team was 21 years old – the youngest team in the competition and the youngest U.S. team to ever play in the Olympics. The team included nine players from the University of Minnesota who played for U.S. coach Herb Brooks there. They included Rob McClanahan, Mike Ramsey, Phil Verchota, Bob Baker and Neil Broten. Four players came from Boston University: Jim Craig, Dave Silk, Jack O’Callahan and the captain of the US team, Mike Eruzione, who played in the Northeastern Conference for Winthrop. The players had some hostility left over from the 1976 semifi nal between BU and Minnesota. To overcome the hostility Brooks, as part of the selection, used a psychological test to get the feel for all the athletes, as to how they would react under extreme pressure. Those who refused to take the test were released from the squad. He well knew Jim Craig, because Craig had been his goalie in the 1979 World Championships. The U.S. team played 61 exhibition games in fi ve months, taking on both European and American teams. To toughen the players up to face the Europeans, Brooks had the team skating wind sprints, consisting of end line to blue line and back, then end line to red line and back, end line to far blue line and back, and finally all the way down and back. The players called these workouts “Herbies.” When the team was tied by Norway in September of 1979, Brooks had the players skate Herbies after the game, and when the arena custodians turned off the lights, they continued in the dark.

Vogler Selectmen schedule workshop for Tuesday night to target various projects and key issues for 2020 agenda “I believe working with the oes the new Board of Selectmen have a “to do” list for 2020? Members, particularly Board of Selectmen Vice Chair Corinne Riley, have been developing a checklist for projects that they would like to accomplish this year. And that workshop has been set for Tuesday, Jan. 14, at 6 p.m. in the fi rst fl oor conference room at Town Hall. “I put this on the agenda because in my opinion, the town has many issues to address, and many potential projects to take on, and we should set priorities to determine the most critical,” Riley said in a written statement she read at the Board of Selectmen’s fi nal meeting of the year last month. Riley said she is following through with her campaign promises of transparency in government and having a plan. She hopes to get selectmen discussing a wide range of potential priorities including these: • Reviewing the status of the Town-wide Master Plan • Reviewing current and future projects in the Capital Improvement Plan • Deciding on strategy for public outreach, like forums, surveys, website, etc. • Determining the town’s fi - nancial capacity and debt policy • Spelling out criteria for setting priorities, like public safety, education, economic development, housing, etc. • Members sharing experience on how previous boards have set goals and priorities. “The output of the meeting or meetings would be written goals and objectives for the year, where the public has a chance to provide their input,” Riley said in her statement. town manager, setting goals with our individual ideas and bring those goals together as a board, will let the people know we will work to keep them informed and that taking this to the public often, asking for public involvement is the way to get them to be a part of the process,” she said. Selectman Jeff rey Cicolini said it is important to include town employees and town residents. He also suggested that it would be important for Town Manager Scott C. Crabtree to share his priorities with the board. “He already has some established goals working with [town] department heads,” Cicolini said. “I’d be interested in hearing what Scott’s [Crabtree] plans are as well,” he added. Riley said she wants to see representatives from town employee unions, various boards and commissions and others get involved. “I think it’s a great idea,” Crabtree said, noting that past Boards of Selectmen have embarked on similar sessions over the years. “Obviously, the school project is a major project in itself,” the town manager said last month. Crabtree was not at this week’s meeting, because of the unexpected death of his father. But Board of Selectmen Chair Anthony Cogliano said the town manager planned to be at the Tuesday night workshop to brief board members on various projects in the works for this year.

One of the complaints was fi led by Eric McKenna on behalf of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees, Council 93. Four complaints were fi led by members of the Moore family (William Moore, Ryan Moore, Christian Moore and Donna Moore). Six of the seven complaints relate to the executive session the Committee held on May 8. The six complaints concerning the School Committee’s May 8 meeting collectively allege: 1) the committee entered into executive session without a proper purpose; 2) the Chair failed to state that holding the executive session discussion in open session would have a detrimental effect on the negotiating position of the committee; 3) the committee discussed matters in executive session that were not listed on the meeting notice; 4) the committee failed to create minutes of the May 8 executive session; and 5) the committee’s violations were intentional. No legal purpose for May 8 meeting In her determination letter, Assistant Attorney General Flynn explains in great detail why there wasn’t any basis for the May 8 executive session. “To begin, we fi nd that the Committee committed several procedural missteps when convening in executive session on May 8. First, the Chair did not make the required announcement in open session stating all subjects that may be revealed without compromising the purpose for which the executive session was called,” Flynn wrote. “In addition, the Chair failed to state whether the Committee would reconvene in open session.... Finally, the Committee did not vote to enter into executive session by roll call, with the vote of each member recorded and entered into the minutes. “Next, we must determine whether the Committee’s May 8 discussion fell within one of the enumerated executive session purposes. We fi nd that it did not. One permissible reason to convene in executive session is “[t] o conduct strategy sessions in preparation for negotiations with nonunion personnel or to conduct collective bargaining sessions or contract negotiations with nonunion personnel.” The School Committee did not specify a statutory purpose for its executive session. But Flynn noted the language “Move into Executive Session for the purpose of Collective Bargaining with the Custodians and The Superintendent’s Contract” in the May 8 meeting notice suggests that the Committee intended to claim executive session Purpose 2. Purpose 2 allows a public body to meet in executive session “[t]o conduct strategy sessions in preparation for negotiations with nonunion personnel or to conduct collective bargaining sessions or contract negotiations with nonunion personnel.” Flynn determined that the School Committee did not conduct collective bargaining sessions during its May 8 executive session. Therefore, Purpose 2 did not apply as a reason for the executive session. Flynn said she also reviewed whether the executive session was proper under Purpose 3 – which allows a public body “to discuss strategy with respect to collective bargaining or litigation if an open meeting may have a detrimental eff ect on the bargaining or litigating position of the public body and the chair so declares. This purpose didn’t apply either. “During the committee’s executive session, it discussed the process of outsourcing custodial services, potential cost savings, and a proposed plan for how to utilize those cost savings,” Flynn noted in her fi nding. “Although the Committee had limited discussion regarding the impact bargaining it was engaged in with the union representing custodial staff, the executive session discussion was predominantly focused on these other topics. Purpose 3 limits discussion to those topics that directly correlate to collective bargaining negotiations, rather than broader policy or budgetary matters,” she wrote. “We therefore find that the Committee violated the Open Meeting Law by discussing topics that were not authorized by executive session Purpose 3, or any other purpose. Additionally, we take this opportunity to remind the Committee that, even if an executive session is lawfully convened, each topic to be discussed must be individually identifi ed on the meeting notice as well as in the announcement in open session prior to entering executive session, and the Committee’s discussions must adhere to those identifi ed topics.” Violations were “not intentional” The McKenna complaint alleges that the “Committee acted intentionally in its violations... as evidenced by the … chair’s failure to acknowledge members’ requests to revoke votes already taken; and the [Committee’s] failure to vote in open session following the May 8, 2019 executive session meeting.” “Neither of these assertions relating to a failure to take corrective action after the fact, even if true, demonstrates that the Committee acted in intentional violation of the Open Meeting Law on May 8,” Flynn wrote. The Division of Open Government determined that the School Committee did not violate the Open Meeting Law in its June 26 executive session. “During the June 26 executive session, the Committee discussed the impact bargaining with the union representing custodial staff , a litigation matter, Open Meeting Law complaints, and executive session minutes,” Flynn wrote. “We fi nd that each of these discussions fell under a proper executive session purpose. The discussions of the impact bargaining and the litigation matter were proper under Purpose 3 which allows a public body to enter into executive session “[t]o discuss strategy with respect to collective bargaining or litigation if an open meeting may have a detrimental eff ect on the bargaining or litigating position SESSION | SEE PAGE 5 Lawrence A.

THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, January 10, 2020 Page 5 SESSION | FROM PAGE 4 of the public body and the chair so declares.” “Likewise, the discussion of the Open Meeting Law complaints was proper under Purpose 1. Purpose 1 allows a public body to discuss “the reputation, character, physical condition or mental health, rather than professional competence, of an individual, or to discuss the discipline or dismissal of, or complaints or charges brought against, a public offi - cer, employee, staff member or individual.” The violations related to the May 8 executive session did not come to light until emails from School Committee Members Morgante and Marchese were made public. On June 12, The Saugus Advocate received these emails in response to a public records request. On June 14, The Saugus Advocate published an article regarding the May 8 executive session and the belief of Morgante and Marchese that the executive session had not been properly held. The committee’s previous violations The state Attorney General’s Division of Open Government cited the School Committee twice in 2018 for violating the Open Meeting Law. In late January, the agency issued a determination that the committee violated the Open Meeting Law for keeping inadequate minutes of a March 16, 2017, executive session – allegations in a complaint fi led in 2017 by then-School Committee Member Peter Manoogian. Then in late June, the AG’s Division of Open Government issued a fi ve-page determination validating allegations in three complaints fi led by The Saugus Advocate which alleged multiple Open Meeting Law violations. One of the fi ndings confi rmed a complaint by the newspaper of an illegal Executive Session. The School Committee met in Executive Session “without a proper statutory purpose” to discuss budget-related matters, according to state Attorney General Maura Healey’s Offi ce. The Open Meeting Law was enacted “to eliminate much of the secrecy surrounding deliberation and decisions on which public policy is based,” according to a 1978 ruling in the case Ghiglione vs. the School Committee. The law requires that meetings of a public body be properly noticed and open to members of the public, unless an executive session is convened. Public bodies may enter a closed, executive session for any of 10 purposes noted in the Open Meeting Law, provided that the chair of the public body fi rst announces in open session the purpose for the executive session, “stating all subjects that may be revealed without compromising the purpose for which the executive session was called.” Start Your Weekend at the Marina Dance Party!

Page 8 THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, January 10, 2020 ASKS | FROM PAGE 1 from the Boston Conservatory and received his master’s in Education from Northeastern University. He spent most of his professional career as a Junior High School guidance counselor during a 30-year career in Saugus Public Schools. He and his wife, Grace, who has been known for her doll-making talents, have been married for 53 years and reside in a ranch house on Staaf Road. Harry has two stepchildren: Patricia Egavian, of Boxford, and Jan Mirjanian, of New Jersey. Highlights of this week’s interview follow. Q: How did you get involved in music? And I guess that’s your fi rst love, right? A: I got involved as a boy. No one in my family played an instrument. But I used to watch, when I went to dancing school. I saw this man play the saxophone when we went to the dance club for young children and young people. And I said, “I want to play that instrument.” Q: How old were you then? A: Junior High age; and then during the war time – early in the war – there were no instruments to be had. I had to buy an instrument locally from somebody, and I studied. Q: So, were you in the marching band at Saugus High? A: Yes. Q: So you were in the Class of 1945. A: During the four years I was in High School, the Saugus High School football team won the Class C Championship and the Class B Championship. And we were very prominent going into Lynn Classical – playing in that Manning Bowl – and then marching from the Saugus High School to the football stadium. And those were the highlights, because there was no money for band trips. Today, kids go to Europe. Q: So, you got that early founthe years, I played in nine different concert bands. I played many years for the “CONTINENTAL HARRY”: Harry Surabian, a retired Saugus Public Schools guidance counselor whose second career as a musician in concert bands made him a world traveler, got that nickname from a close friend. (Saugus Advocate photo by Mark E. Vogler) dation for music while playing in the High School band. A: Oh yeah. Q: So how many years in the High School band did you play? A: Four years. Q: And then you graduated. A: And got drafted in the Army. And because I had the musical training, after basic training, I learned how to kill … I fi red every weapon possible … fl ame throwers, bazookas, everything except a revolver. And because of that, I was an infantryman, but I never went into any group. After basic training, that’s when they sent me to Europe to play in the band. Q: So, you had the combat skills, but you went into the service as a musician. A: Exactly. Q: Please tell me, after the Army what happened? A: Well, I got my training in music and then the Army stationed me in a band in Heidelberg, Germany. And when I came out, I said, “What am I going to do?” Well, I said maybe I would like to be a music teacher, which I did become. And I taught after I graduated from the Conservatory; I taught up RETIREMENT PHOTO: Harry Surabian spent three decades working for Saugus Public Schools – mostly as a guidance counselor – before retiring in 1990. (Courtesy photo to The Saugus Advocate) in New Hampshire for three years; and after three-year training, where I developed a band. They never had a band where I went, but I developed a band. And in three years, I had three diff erent bands, from a junior band to an adult band. Q: Whereabouts in New Hampshire? A: Penacook, N.H. Q: Okay. Now, how did you get started as an educator in Saugus? A: The principal of the Junior High took me to the superintendent and said, “Hire him.” So, I fi rst went to work for him as a Geography teacher. But I later became a guidance counselor, where I spent most of my time. Q: About how long did your music career last and when did it actually end? A: I’m going to say it went from 1940, 1941 … from High School up to maybe fi ve years ago. Q: And that was with the American Legion Band? A: Other bands – local bands – Wakefi eld … I was very active. I was the choir director in two diff erent churches: Cliftondale Methodist Church and Watertown Congregational Church. I organized a boys’ choir. Over Waltham American Legion Band. These bands took me everywhere. When I was with the Waltham American Legion Band, we’d cover a good part of the U.S., from Washington State to down South. I traveled not only throughout the U.S. – and to Europe, to England and Ireland and a lot of diff erent countries – Norway, Sweden, Italy and Germany. My close friend nicknamed me “Continental Harry” because of all of the traveling I did. Not too many people know that … I don’t broadcast it. I loved to play. I had a second home in Falmouth – in the Old Silver Beach area – and I loved it there so much that I played in the Community Band in Falmouth. Q: So, your dad was born in Turkey and came over here. Tell me about it. A: The Armenian genocide brought my family to this country in World War I. Q: So, how did your dad get to Saugus? A: He opened up various stores and found the one in Cliftondale that later became a package store. When Prohibition ended, he applied for the alcohol license. Q: And he had a package store right in Cliftondale, was that right? A: Cliftondale Square. Correct. Q: What was the name of the package store? A: Cliftondale Liquors. Q: And how long did he have it? A: He had it until he retired and we sold it. Q: Did you have any brothers and sisters? A: Yes. Q: How many? A: Two brothers, and they were in the package store fulltime. I helped part-time. That’s where I got to understand all of the products that we had. I tasted everything. I never drank a lot of it, but I tasted everything. Q: And you said you had a sister. A: She was handicapped. Q: Two brothers and a sister. Okay. And you are the last survivor of your siblings? A: Not only that – my father had three other brothers. They all had children, mostly male children. They’re all gone now. I am the last of the fi rst-generation Surabian left. I could show you a picture of the family, but I don’t have it handy. There were numerous members of the family. Q: What would you say the highlight of your music career was, as you look back over the years? A: I think going to the Soviet Union, but there were other places that I’ve been … down in Louisiana and around the country. Being a musician allowed me to see the United States from a tourist point of view. Q: Did you play before any Russian dignitaries? A: Yes. I was the fi rst clarinet player, and we just did a concert, and this Russian general standing just where you are. And I’m right here and he’s right there and the conductor is right in the middle. And he wanted to hear an American tune. We didn’t have the music, but we played it … and this was right in the area where you always see in Moscow … the famous old building. And we went to a spot right near the famous square; it’s similar to our place for the Unknown Soldier. There were people to get in line to see all of this, and they escorted us through. And we saw the location of the Unknown Soldiers and the Memorial Day program there. And then we went to Leningrad and did the same thing there. And that’s where Germany tried to starve out the city in that faASKS | SEE PAGE 9

THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, January 10, 2020 Page 9 ASKS | FROM PAGE 8 mous three-year time period [“Siege of Leningrad”] where Germany thought she could beat the people in Leningrad down. So, we performed there, and we marched from the beginning of the cemetery up to the location of the memorial. And there, I could even see an Armenian church, because a lot of Armenians lived in Russia. I could see that they devoted something in this memorial for them, too. Q: Tell me some more interesting stuff about your trip to the Soviet Union. A: We were playing with the Russian Army Band. We did a joint concert, and in preparing for the concert, the two bands played John Philip Sousa’s “Stars and Stripes Forever.” I’m really surprised they knew it. When we were rehearsing in the same room, both bands played that number. It wasn’t part of the concert, but in the friendship manner, they played that number. I think they appreciated the American march music. Q: And that happened 30 years ago. A: Thirty years ago. I wish it were 30 years ago. Q: So, what song did you enjoy the most? A: I don’t have a favorite. I enjoyed all the numbers I played – many, many patriotic numbers – “The Star Spangled Banner.” I must have played that song the most times. I played at so many military functions throughout the country. I played a lot of numbers. I played for a Russian general. I played at a political function for [Bill] Clinton. We never got involved politically. Q: So, what’s your best memory as a Saugus native? A: Oh, playing in the High School band – the great exposure I got to music. You keep the memories when you are young. Q: And you played the saxophone and the clarinet at Saugus High? A: No, just the clarinet. Well, I did play saxophone on the side when I did a High School dance. That I would do, but I had to borrow somebody’s saxophone. Actually, you didn’t have to study it; if you played clarinet, you could play the saxophone. Q: And then you played clarinet in the Army. A: Before I went in the Army, I played clarinet. And while in High School, I played clarinet and I could play a couple of dances. Q: But in the Army band, you played … A: Clarinet and saxophone – actually, three diff erent instruments – several types of saxwww.reverealuminumwindow.com ophones. They called it a baritone-type sax. And we would do special shows for the Army. You know, in the RKO Theatre they’d have a band come on the stage. Well, that’s what we did. We put on a show. Q: So in addition to being a musician, you were a guidance counselor for many years at the High School. Right? A: A guidance counselor; that was my career. Actually, I was a musician and a guidance counselor. Both. But professionally, I was a guidance counselor. Those days are gone. Just about everybody I knew, from superintendents to principals – most of them have all passed away. Everybody I know my age has just about passed away. My days are limited, but I try to keep busy. Q: Do you still play an instrument now? A: No. I don’t play anything anymore because I can’t go to rehearsal. I lost my lip because I don’t play anymore. I just don’t get together anymore. Some of the groups I used to play with still play every morning, like in Wakefi eld – the Wakefi eld Men’s Club. We were the band for the Wakefi eld Men’s Club. Q: Anything else that you would like to share about your career or Saugus? You were a Town Meeting member, huh? A: Yes. That was nice. Q: How many years? A: Only a few years. I didn’t have time. I was so busy. Q: So, what precinct? A: Precinct 6. Same precinct. I lived up the street. Q: Any other town offi ces that you held? ASKS | SEE PAGE 10

Page 10 THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, January 10, 2020 ASKS | FROM PAGE 9 A: Not really. I was appointed to a diff erent committee now and then for something, but that was unimportant. Q: Now, let’s get back to the message you shared with me before: that parents should have their kids pick up an instrument when they’re in school. A: Yes. I think it’s important that they take up an instrument. This local band is going downhill. There are just too few members. People aren’t interested, or else they’re not encouraged to have their kids take up an instrument. That’s why I donated my instruments when I retired. Q: How many instruments did you donate? A: About four of them: One was a trumpet; an alto saxophone, a clarinet and bass clarinet. Q: So, that was a couple of years ago? A: Maybe within the last four years. Recently. Let me put it that way. Q: So, how do you think the kids can benefi t from playing an instrument in school? What kind of benefi ts come out of that? A: You never know what’s going to happen as you grow older. You may get a scholarship to play in college in the band. That’s one of the benefi ts. And today you need every cent possible...for many people to go to college. So, the benefi ts are social involvement and fi nancial. What else can I say? Q: In your case, you got to play in the Army band instead of going out to the front. Right? A: Well, I never had the opportunity [to go out to the front], and I’m glad I didn’t. Q: But you were trained militarily. A: Oh yes. Q: But they put you in the A FULL SERVICE REAL ESTATE GROUP Commercial Sales and Leasing Residential Home Sales Real Estate Consulting Apartment Rentals Real Estate Auctions Business Brokerage Personal Property Appraisals Mass Licensed Auctioneer band. A: Right. Not that I feel less than the people who did go in. But it was a good thing that I played in the Saugus High School Band. Without that experience, I probably never would have gotten into the Army Band. So, I think it’s so important that children pick up an instrument when they’re in school. You never know where you are going to end up with that training. Q: Share with me a little highlight from your High School career as a guidance counselor.

In the Olympics in Group Play the Americans started off with the Swedes and gained a two all tie by scoring the tying goal with 27 seconds left on the clock, after pulling goalie Jim Craig. This goal was very important because if all else remained the same, the Soviets would have emerged with the goal medal on goal diff erential in the medal round. The next game was a stunner, a 7-3 victory over Czechoslovakia. The St. Margaret’s now handicapped accessible t. Margaret’s Church in Cliftondale Square is now fully handicapped accessible. The new lift, which was built through the generosity of Saugus Catholics parishioners, the Saugus community and local businesses, is complete. On December 22, prior to the 9:30 a.m. Mass at St. Margaret’s, Fr. Tim Kelleher, pastor of the Saugus Collaborative, was joined in the “fi rst ride” in the elevator by Frances Maher, who will celebrate her 101st birthday this year. Fr. Tim, speaking on behalf of the Saugus Catholics Collaborative, thanked everyone who participated in this major capital campaign. S “The way that this entire community came together to accomplish this goal should be an inspiration to us all. When we began this project, we didn’t know if people would support this eff ort. It would be expensive, it was a big job. It had been talked about many times in the past several years, but was still on our ‘wish’ list,” he said. “And yet, here we are today, with a church building that is open and accessible, ready to welcome anyone who wishes to enter. To the Saugus Catholics community, it is a unique symbol of what we can accomplish when we work together in the Lord. We are now once again able to provide our parishioners with daily Mass at St. Margaret’s on Mondays through Wednesdays, and also funeral services, all of which had to be moved to Blessed Sacrament Church during the lift construction.” 1.

The Soviets waltzed through their group, beating Japan 16-0, the Netherlands 17-4, Poland 8-1, Finland 4-2 and Canada 6-4. The Soviets and Finns advanced. The semifi nal game with the Soviets presented a problem to ABC when the game was scheduled for 5:00 p.m. ABC wanted prime time at 8:00 p.m. for a wider audience, but it was not to be. ABC decided not to broadcast the game live but showed it as part of the Olympic coverage during prime time. The reason was that the Soviets complained that the game would be shown in the USSR at 4:00 a.m. rather than 1:00 a.m. In the locker room, Brooks read a statement to his players: “You were to be a player. You were meant to be here.

Can you recommend some monitoring technology devices or any other solutions that can help me keep tabs on him? Exhausted Spouse Dear Exhausted, This is a concern for millions of Americans caring for a loved one with dementia at home. About 60 percent of people who suff er from dementia wander at some point, according to the Alzheimer’s Association. For caregivers, this can be frightening because many of those who wander off end up confused and lost, even in their own neighborhood, and are unable to communicate who they are or where they live. Here are some product and service solutions that may help. Simple Solutions For starters, there are a number of simple home modifi - cations you can do to keep your husband from wandering away. Some solutions include adding an extra lock on the top or bottom of the exterior doors out of the line of sight or installing door alarms on the exterior doors that let you know when they’re opened. See AlzStore.com for a variety of product solutions. And, be sure you hide the car keys to keep him from driving. You should also alert your neighbors that your husband may wander so they can keep an eye out and have a recent picture of him on hand to show around the neighborhood or to the police if he does get lost. Monitoring Technology For high-tech solutions, there are a variety of wearable GPS tracking devices available today that can help you keep tabs on him. Some top options to consider include AngelSense (AngelSense.com), which can be attached to clothing or worn around the waist; wristwatches like the Theora Connect (TheoraCare.com) or NurtureWatch (NurtureWatch.com); and the GPS SmartSole (GPSSmartSole.com), which is a shoe insole tracker. All of these products come with smartphone apps that would alert you if your husband were to wander beyond a pre-established safe area and would let you know where to fi nd him if he did. These products (except the GPS SmartSole) also provide two-way voice communication and auto pickup speakerphone so you can talk to him if he does wander off . Locating Services If the previously listed options don’t work for you, there are also locating services – like the MedicAlert + Safe Return program (MedicAlert.org/alz) and Vitals Aware Services (TheVitalsApp.com) – that can help you if he does wander off . The MedicAlert + Safe Return program comes with a personalized ID bracelet that would have your husband’s medical information engraved on it, along with his membership number and the toll-free MedicAlert emergency phone number. If he goes missing, you would call 911 and report it to the local police department who would begin a search, and then report it to MedicAlert. Or, a Good Samaritan or police offi cer may fi nd him and call the MedicAlert number to get him back home. The Vitals Aware Service works a bit diff erently. This is a free app-based network system that comes with a small beacon that your husband would wear. If he did go missing, anyone in the Vitals app network community that came within 80 feet of him would receive an alert and information about him so they could contact you.

He began reeling off “Eleven seconds, you’ve got 10 seconds, the countdown going on right now! Morrow up to Silk. Five seconds left in the game. Do you believe in miracles! YES!’ and this became the name of the contest – “Miracle On Ice.” The win was not the win for the Gold Medal as most people believe today. Today they play a semifi nal and then a fi - nal, but that was not the system in 1980. The medal round was a round-robin. Because of the format the tie with Sweden was counted along with the Soviets’ victory over the Finns. It was therefore possible for the Americans to fi nish fourth. After beating the USSR, they faced the Finns for the Gold Medal. Team USA came back from a 2-1 defi cit to defeat Finland 4-2 and get the Gold Medal. The players were not able to ascend the small podium as the medals were presented to the team captains. After completion of the national anthem, Eruzione waved to his teammates to join him on the podium. Today the winners do not use the podium; they line up on their respective blue line after the fi nal game. The cover of the March 3, 1980, issue of Sport Illustrated was a photograph by Heinz Kluetmeier of the American players celebrating and waving an American fl ag without any explanatory captions or headlines – we will always remember the Miracle on Ice in the Olympics, because as Kluetmeier put it, “It didn’t need it. Everyone in America knew what happened.” Team USA received the magazine’s Sportsmen of the Year award and were named Athlete of the Year by the Associated Press and ABC’s Wide World of Sports. In 2004 ESPN, as part of its 25-year anniversary, declared the Miracle on Ice to be the top sports headline moment, and game of the period 1979-2004. The victory was voted the greatest sports moment of the twentieth century by Sports Illustrated. As an aside, my son Mike had the opportunity to play against Jim Craig in a charity game in Western Massachusetts, long after Craig retired from the pros. When Mike between periods asked him about playing against lower level players like himself, Craig answered that players like Mike would probably never score on him unless they got very lucky. Too bad that you younger people were not around to witness this historic event, but those of us who were will always remember Miracle on Ice.
