SAUGUS Vol. 22, No. 2 -FREESHS Sachems sports coverage - See pages 12 & 13 ADVOCATE www.advocatenews.net Published Every Friday “For a safer Saugus” Selectmen vote to reduce speed limit to 25 mph on Essex and Main Streets and Lincoln Avenue By Mark E. Vogler B oard of Selectmen Chair Debra Panetta told residents attending a public hearing Wednesday night on a proposal to lower the speed limit on several well-traveled Saugus roads that she’s on their side. “We’re all citizens for a safer Saugus,” Panetta reassured the crowd. “We all believe in the cause,” she added. After hearing testimony from 18 speakers – most of them expressing support for a measure to reduce the speed limit to 25 miles per hour within three major Saugus streets – Panetta and her colleagues voted 4-0 to back the proposal initiated by the Board’s Vice Chair, Jeffrey Cicolini. Interim Saugus Police Chief Ronald Giorgetti – the leadoff speaker – said he believes the existing speed limits for Essex Street, Main Street and Lincoln Avenue “are appropriately set.” Cicolini, who has also recommended a 25 miles per hour speed limit for Central Street (which is set for a public hearing at the Board’s Jan. 23 meeting), said he respected the opinion of the Police Department. But, he added, he was going by his “gut” feeling that it is important to lower the speed limit on the town’s four major roads. Cicolini noted the four roads always seemed to be “filled with cars going beyond A town-wide speed limit analysis recently commissioned by Town Manager Scott C. Crabtree could focus on up to nine primary road corridors in Saugus where new regulations could be considered. The Engineering Corp (TEC) THE GAME PLAN: A key part of Town Manager Scott C.

Crabtree] and his administration,” Panetta said. “This board has taken the traffic situation very seriously, and has asked our Town Manager to work with the police to try to arrive at solutions to alleviate this issue,” she said. Panetta, Cicolini and Selectmen Jennifer D’Eon and Mark Mitchell all praised the residents who turned out at Wednesday night’s hearing. “We have a common desire for a safer Saugus,” Cicolini said. “If it saves one life, it’s worth it,” he said. D’Eon said she was thankful to see the turnout out at the public hearing. “I’m so proud to be from Saugus,” she said. Mitchell said he was impressed by the level of public discussion. “People have a lot of great ideas,” he said. Panetta said the board is committed to supporting the contributions of town residents, particularly the group SAFER SAUGUS | SEE PAGE 7 ~ Home of the Week ~ Saugus.....Charming 3 bedroom Raised Cape offers 6 rooms, 3 bedrooms, 1 full bath, spacious fi replace living room with hardwood fl oors, eat-in kitchen, fi nished second fl oor with 3rd bedroom with electric heat, family room in lower level, one car garage under, off street parking, newer roof, great deck for entertaining, private back yard, located on a side street.

The consultant group is expected to provide a draft report to the town detailing the current speed limit inventory and current regulations and outlining the results of the data collection and analysis while providing recommendations for speed limits throughout town. “The safety of our residents and visitors within our Town has always been and will continue to be a top priority to this administration and Board of Selectmen,” Town Manager Crabtree said in a statement this week announcing his decision to hire TEC for the study. “With this comprehensive Town-wide speed limit analysis and corresponding traffic safety improvement plan, we aim to increase protection and peace of mind for walkers and drivers within our community 781-233-4446 Friday, January 11, 2019 Safety report due this spring on town-wide speed limit analysis By Mark E.

If the Saugus Police Department assists in the radar gun data collection, cost of the study could be reduced by $7,000. A draft report would be available by March 29, with April 19 as the target completion date of the final report. The timeline for the report appears to provide Crabtree and other town officials time to prepare budget recommendations for the Annual Town Meeting, which convenes in May. “We will work closely with municipal staff to address speeding and traffic congestion by providing recommendations for improving safe and efficient traffic flow such as speed reduction markings, speed humps, signage, street flow conversion, removing bump outs and flashing beacons at crosswalks,” the TEC report notes. TEC has worked on more than 10 traffic and transportation engineering projects for both private and public clients in Saugus since 2006. The project narrative notes that the study offers opportunities for the town to: • Bring all regulatory speed signage into compliance with state and federal standards; • Create areas with regulatory slower speeds near high pedestrian volume areas, such as local schools; • Provide warning signage SAFETY REPORT | SEE PAGE 8 ANGELO’S "Over 40 Years of Excellence!" 1978-2019 Regular Unleaded $2.299 Mid Unleaded $2.699 Super $2.759 Diesel Fuel $2.899 KERO $4.259 Diesel $2.849 FULL SERVE HEATING OIL 24-Hour Burner Service Call for Current Price!

Vogler fter nearly three years on the job, the town’s Director of Public Health, David J. Greenbaum, announced he is resigning to return to Salem, the city he served before coming to Saugus. “It wasn’t all about the money,” Greenbaum said in an interview after attending his final Board of Health meeting on Monday. “It was the idea of working in a bigger department and the bigger challenges that come with it,” he told The Saugus Advocate. “I worked there 12-plus years. I was senior inspector and I was acting health agent there for two years,” he said. Greenbaum informed Saugus Board of Health members that Jan. 25 would be his final day of work for the town. At Monday’s meeting, Board of Health Chair William Heffernan thanked Greenbaum for his service to the town. “You’ve been a pleasure to work with,” Heffernan said. Greenbaum, whose hiring anniversary date would have been Feb. 22, called his employment with Saugus “a great experience.” “I enjoyed my time here,” said Greenbaum, who has about 20 years in the public health field. “I’m just pleased with the with Special Guests: Punchy & The Blackouts REVOLVER IN THE MUSIC HALL Saturday, January 19 Featuring Sophie Lee Davis, Annie Brobst TANGERINE IN THE MUSIC HALL Saturday, January 26 work the board and I did together, protecting public health.

THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, January 11, 2019 ~THE ADVOCATE ASKS~ Page 3 The Santoro brothers reflect on four decades of running the family sub shop, which closes next month Editor’s Note: For this week, we sat down with Rich and Rob Santoro, brothers and co-owners of Santoro’s Sub-Villa, a popular sub shop on Essex Street off of Route 1 in Saugus, which announced to customers last week that it will be closing for good around Feb. 3. We asked the brothers to share some interesting stories about the business that their late grandfather – Robert Santoro, Sr. – began in 1954. Rich, 55, of North Reading, and Rob, 56, of North Reading, took over the sub shop from their late father – Robert Santoro, Jr. – about 40 years ago. Their family roots are in Stoneham, where they grew up. But they each have a strong local connection to the town: Rich’s wife, the former Joy Merrithew, and Rob’s wife, the former Candace Draper, are both Saugus High School graduates. Thousands of Saugus teenagers have worked for the sub shop over the years. With no children who can one day oversee the family business for a fourth generation, the brothers decided it’s time to say goodbye to Saugus and the loyal customers their family has served at three locations off of Route 1 for 65 years. Some highlights of the interview follow. Q: Rich, tell me how it all began. Rich: Well, my grandfather was in the tile business, and he was looking for something as a cash business. He and my father discussed it and they decided to go into the sub business, and that’s when they opened up in 1954, over here [where the Dunkin’ Donuts is]. And they got so big so quick this place – “When I was a kid, my dad used to take me” – and it’s good to hear. I wish we had more time to sit out and talk to the people, but we’ve been so busy. [During the interview, several customers came over and talked to the brothers and wished them well.] Q: So tell me, Rich, what’s the TAKING A BREAK: Left to right, brothers Rich and Rob Santoro relax during an interview this week at Santoro’s Sub-Villa on Essex Street off of Route 1 in Saugus. The brothers recently announced to their customers that they are calling it quits on or about Feb. 3, ending more than six decades of family ownership through three generations. (Saugus Advocate Photos by Mark E. Vogler) that they had to buy the property where the Walgreens is now, and they built it up from there. My father took over. My grandfather retired in the mid 60’s. In the late 80’s, Rob and I started to take over gradually, and by the time we got over here in ’91, pretty much my father had retired and we took over. Q: Now you guys are cobosses? Rob: Yup. We’re here every day. Q: As you look back on the history of the business, what’s the most memorable experience for you? Rob: Well, the most fascinating thing for me is the amount of people that still come here 40 years later – they are still regular customers – and the amount of kids that we’ve had work here, and they grow up and they get married and their kids work here. And we’re closing now, but they’re all coming in and want to be a part of it. It’s just been very humbling to us to see all of the people come back and wish us well. Q: How many kids worked over here over the years? Rich: Thousands. Just thousands of kids, and it’s not only the mother or father – it’s generations because they know it’s a great place to work. We’ll have a brother and a sister or two sisters work for us; they’ll grow up, have kids and they’ll come in. So, it’s always the story of “My grandfather used to take me here and my father started taking me here” and so on. Rob: We’ve been getting a lot of that lately, customers coming in while we’re trying to work. They’re yelling back to us about their memories of secret to your success here? Rich: A couple of things. My family created a quality product and stuck with it through the years, starting with the Piantedosi roll [Piantedosi Baking Co. in Malden]. We’re buying quality products, not skimp“We have been with Adult Foster Care of the North Shore for over five years. They have been there for us through thick and thin.

THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, January 11, 2019 Page 5 Chief Giorgetti says Saugus Police need a traffic enforcement unit By Mark E. Vogler I nterim Saugus Chief of Police Ronald Giorgetti is recommending additional funds in the town’s 2020 fiscal year budget so the Police Department can establish a traffic enforcement unit. “With a dedicated traffic unit, we could reduce the traffic accidents significantly,” Giorgetti said at Wednesday night’s selectmen’s meeting during a public hearing on a proposal to reduce speed limits on three major Saugus roads: Essex Street, Main Street and Lincoln Avenue. Town Manager Scott C. Crabtree, a former Saugus police officer, has already said the Police Department needs to have its own traffic enforcement unit. While selectmen didn’t accept the chief’s recommendation to retain the current speed limits on the three welltraveled town roads, all members expressed support in giving him the resources he BACK | from page 2 proctor. Greenbaum holds a bachelor of science degree from Salem State College. Several of Greenbaum’s accomplishments when he worked for the City of Salem include the update and amendment of the Salem Board of Health’s body art regulations, organization and scheduling of an annual household hazardous waste day, and overseeing the organization and implementation of several H1N1 flu clinics during the 2009 pandemic. Search underway to replace Greenbaum The Town of Saugus posted an ad last Friday to begin the search for Greenbaum’s replacement. “This position plans, coordinates, and directs the public health programs and activities of the Town,” the ad notes. “Enforces public health laws and regulations. Reviews existing laws and regulations and works with governing bodies and policy-makers to update them as needed. Conducts enforcement activities. Coordinates notification of violations among other governmental agencies that enforce laws and regulations that protect the public’s health. “Conducts inspections of residential and commercial properties in accordance with state and local public needs to make the streets safer for pedestrians and riders. “I fully support the need for additional resources for traffic enforcement,” Board of Selectmen Vice Chair Jeffrey Cicolini said. “I do believe we have to support our police any way we can,” Board of Selectmen Chair Debra Panetta said. Crabtree said the Department is constantly looking for state or federal grants that would enable the Police Department to hire additional officers – a necessity in order to do a better job on traffic enforcement. During Wednesday night’s hearing, Giorgetti recommended keeping the speed limits the same. “We continue to believe the speed limits are appropriately set,” Giorgetti said. “We suggest posting the speed limit signs on the streets in accordance with the speed limits that are in the Traffic Rules and Regulations and already approved by the state,” health laws and regulations. Jurisdiction includes, but is not limited to: housing, lead paint, food establishments, tobacco sales establishments, massage therapy establishments, septic haulers, rubbish haulers, swimming pools, summer camps, nuisances, and facilities that use or store hazardous materials. “Issues various licenses and permits based on application review, site inspections, and evaluation of the issues involved. Prepares related reports and records. “Applicants must have a minimum of a Bachelor’s Degree in Public Health or related field, with at least 3-5 years of supervisory Public Health inspection experience.” Giorgetti wrote in a position statement he presented to selectmen. Giorgetti suggested that “transportation practitioners commonly refer to the “3 E” model “when seeking to address pedestrian and bicyclist safety concerns”: • Engineering changes to the roadway environment or operations (sidewalks, bike facilities, traffic signals) that affect the movement of pedestrians, bicyclists and other road users • Education – efforts made to educate pedestrians, bicyclists, drivers or other groups in order to raise awareness of a particular law, safety issue or behavior and motivate a change in attitude or behavior that will have a positive effect on safety • Enforcement – law enforcement agency efforts to promote compliance with laws, ordinances and regulations (speed limits, failure to yield, use of crosswalks, use of bicycle facilities). “Keep in mind that lowering the speed limit on main arteries will undoubtedly create more traffic congestion and will only succeed in reducing traffic collisions, personal injuries, facilities and property damage with the cooperation of the motoring public,” Giorgetti said. “Enforcement and education would be key components of any overall strategy to reduce injuries and property damage,” the chief said. “If the board chooses to lower the speed limit to 25 MPH, the department recommends the Town acquire the services of Traffic engineer/consultant to identify type of signs or signals, and location of signs or signals. The Department of Public Works would be responsible for procurement and installation of the appropriate signage.” SNOW BLOWER SALES, SERVICE & REPAIRS Pickup/Delivery Available 781-289-6466 www.reverealuminumwindow.com We are proud to offer treatment options tailored specifically to you and your teeth in the most comprehensive, caring and relaxed setting.

I guess his last name was too hard to pronounce so he changed it for his career. He was born September 1, 1923, in Brockton, Mass., and died one day before his birthday on August 31, 1969, in a plane crash near Newton, Iowa. The topic came up when I recently went to Mike’s Barber Shop in the center and we were discussing topics for a column. Mike, as most people know, is a dedicated sports fan, and he really focuses on boxing. I told him I wrote about Joe Louis years ago and I needed a new topic. Mike suggested Rocky Marciano. Marciano was born and raised on the south side of Brockton, Mass., to Pierino and Pasqualina Marchegiano. Both his parents were immigrants from Italy, his father from Ripa Teatina, Abruzzo, and his mother from San Bartolomeo, Galdo, Campania. His father was a shoe factory worker. Rocky had two brothers, Louis and Peter, and three sisters: Alice, Concetta and Elizabeth. Rocky nearly died at 18 months old when he contracted pneumonia, but he pulled through. The family was often short on finances so Rocky worked many jobs as a youngster: as a dishwasher or gardener or in a candy or shoe factory. He was determined throughout his life that his mother would never experience poverty; that was his dedication. Marciano was a pretty good baseball player as a youngster, along with high school football. He dreamed of a career as a professional athlete. During these years he also worked out, boxing in his backyard. In 1943 he was drafted into the Army, and stationed in Swansea, Wales, ferrying materials over to troops in Normandy, France. He finished his service in March 1946 at Fort Louis, Washington. He took up boxing in the service because it kept him out of KP and guard duty. Rocky tried out his prowess in the amateur ring in 1946. He won 27 of his 30 AUTOTECH 1989 SINCE Are You Cold Weather Ready!

THE OLD SACHEM | SEE PAGE 8 Bill Stewart The Old Sachem fights as an amateur. In 1947 he got a chance to try out for the Chicago Cubs as a catcher in spring training, but because of an arm injury in the Army he could not throw accurately to second base. By the spring of 1948, Rocky was drawing attention in boxing circles, and by 1949, after he knocked out his first 16 opponents he was slated for stardom. He was only 190 pounds and many thought he was too small for the big time. His early fans in Brockton often travelled to his matches in Providence, R.I., and would yell “Timmmmmmberrr” when Rocky floored his opponent. He boxed in a knee squat, lowering his body to give opponents less of a target. He learned a lethal punch coming up from below with amazing power. October 28, 1951, was a night to remember for Rocky when he faced former heavyweight champion Joe Louis. Before this bout, Rocky had 37 wins and 32 KOs so he was ready for the big time. Louis was past his prime (Joe was a past champion), and Marciano knocked him out in the eighth round, defeating his early hero. He won the next five fights and his ability earned him the right to battle for the championship against the champ, Jersey Joe Walcott, in Philadelphia on September 23, 1952. Jersey Joe dominated the fight most of the way, but in the 13th round Rocky caught Joe with an overhand right to the jaw, and the champion fell – knocked out – and a new champion was established. Rocky defended his title only six times, knocking out Jersey Joe in the first round of their rematch in 1953, then he KO’d Roland La Starza later that year. In 1954 he won a decision against Ezzard Charles and almost lost his title to Charles later that year. Charles sent a savage blow to Rocky’s nose, and his corner crew had a hard time stopping the blood flow. The ring doctor inspected the damage, considered stopping the fight, but allowed it to continue. Rocky knocked out Charles in the eighth round. His next bout was Don Cock

THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, January 11, 2019 Page 7 SAFER SAUGUS | from page 1 “Citizens for a Safer Saugus,” a grassroots group of residents who have been lobbying town officials to take action to make Saugus streets safer, including lowering the speed limit to 25 mph town-wide. Selectmen said they will await the outcome of an ongoing study being done by The Engineering Corp (TEC) of Andover before addressing the issue of a town-wide speed limit (see related story). “People have to remember it took 40 years to create these problems, so it’s not going to take four hours to resolve,” Panetta said after the hearing. More signs and better enforcement needed Several of the speakers who testified at the hearing said they don’t see the value of lowering speed limits unless the Police Department has the resources to enforce the speed limit. “If you have a speed limit that’s not posted or enforced, I fail to see the reason for lowering the speed limit,” said Town Moderator Stephen N. Doherty, a Town Meeting member who lives on Essex Street in precinct 4. has to be enforced,” Berkowitch said of the reduced speed limit. He said the flashing signs in Melrose might work well in Saugus. Ann Condon of 178 Essex St. noted that lowering speed limBEDROOMS *Inventory Clearance Sale* TACKLING THE PROBLEM: The Engineering Corp. (TEC) of Andover will work closely with town officials over the next several months to identify and study traffic volumes and speeds and suggest speed limits for town streets and best placement for accompanying signage, including crosswalks. “My end of Essex Street is like a highway,” he noted. Still, Doherty said he didn’t see the “piecemeal” approach of lowering the speed limit on individual streets. Precinct 6 Town Meeting Member Bill Brown, who is chair of “Citizens for a Safer Saugus,” said he understands the need for a comprehensive study. But he expressed skepticism that little has come from past studies. Bob Davis, one of the organizers of Citizens for a Safer Saugus, said he feels there “needs to be an urgency to slowing down traffic on these main streets. However, you also need to enact a 25 miles per hour speed limit as soon as possible.” While admitting to being impatient, Davis stressed “there should be an urgency to saving lives.” Corey Berkowitch, a resident of 124 Main St., displayed a photo of a car that had crashed into his house to show the need to stop cars speeding down Main Street. “Reducing the speed, it will help.

THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, January 11, 2019 Page 9 ASKS | from page 4 keep coming back. That same quality product. Rich: If it was up to us, we would have stuck with the 10 items on the menu – but while times change, you have to branch out into wraps and salads and side orders. You have to keep up with the demand. Q: So, Rob, what’s the most popular sandwich on your menu? What’s the top dog? Rob: I think it’s the Italian cold cut. Rich: By far, the most favorite is our Italian. We’ve made it the same way with the same meats and the same bread since we began. Q: What’s the busiest day of the year? Rich: The day we announced we were closing. Q: I meant the busiest regular day. Rob: It’s Christmas Eve, because on Christmas Eve we have a lot of parties and we have a lot of catering, plus doing the regular business, and Rich’s wife, Joy, does all of the catering, and without her, we couldn’t do what we do. And she deserves to be in there as one of the key ingredients in our success. Rich: She started when she was 15. I didn’t marry her until she was 25. Q: So, she was here before she really knew you. Rich: Right. That’s where we met. She started here as a high school kid and she moved up. She went to Newbury College and got a degree in culinary. She does all the hot food. … But while she’s busy with the platters and all the catering, the store is very busy that day as well, because nobody is cooking – they’re out shopping. Q: When you look back – and I’m going to ask each of you guys again – what would be the most memorable moment for you? Did you have a celebrity here or something funny? Rich: Really, I just can’t get past the amount of people who have come to us recently and retold the stories of the past: the times that they’ve been here and how they have cherished that as a family. I’m just so proud that we carried that tradition on. I think it’s just the last couple of days that we’ve really seen the outpouring of customers and employees that don’t want to see us go. Q: Rob, what’s your most memorable moment? Rob: We’ve been here a long time and both of us worked in our old store over where Walgreens is. When we decided we were going to move into this new building here, we closed up at 10:00 on a Wednesday night. We were wheeling all of the equipment over from across the street – pizza ovens and slicers – we were carrying them across and bringing all of our cold cuts and everything, and we got it all in here that night and opened up the next morning. And we started a new business here the very next day. We didn’t take a day off. We closed there Wednesday and opened here Thursday. We didn’t have a phone line here yet, and we sat my sister in the vacant building to answer the phone, take orders and then come over and tell us. Q: Let me ask you, Rich, how many hours a week do you average? Rich: We’re probably down to 50 or 60 now. We were up there at 70 to 80, because once we took over, we were there day and night. Rob: When we were younger, we could do that [70 to 80 hours a week]. When we moved into this store, we started getting some night managers. Once we found a couple of people that we thought we could leave in charge, we started to cut it down so we didn’t have to do any more night shifts. We opened up in 1991 in this store, and here we are today in 2019, and we’re tired and we’re looking forward to retiring and being able to do things that we never had a chance to do, because this was an everyday thing. Q: When did you decide you were going to retire? Rich: It’s been about a year that we made the decision, but something we’ve thought about for about four years, and finally, last year, we decided we’ve got to set a date, because we don’t have another generation. Rob doesn’t have kids. I don’t have kids. So, our mind was kind of made up. We had no one to pass it on to, so we wanted to take our name and ride off into the sunset. Q: How will you spend your retirement, Rich? Rich: Between summers up here and winters down in Florida. We plan on traveling and just enjoying a day off and not having to worry about someone calling me and saying “The night manager is out” or “This one is out” or “You got to go get this.” Q: Rob, how are you going to spend your retirement? Rob: I plan on taking a couple of weeks right off the start to just sleep in and not have to worry about this place at all. Then, me and my wife talked about traveling and just go away to places and not really set a date to come home. Just go and enjoy, and if we want to stay someplace a little longer, we can. And that’s the biggest thing for us because every time we go away, we have to say “I can only stay a day and a half, and I have to get home.” Q: What’s your favorite sub? Rob: Mine is a steak and cheese. Q: Rich? Rich: It’s the eggplant parmesan. Q: Are you going to miss your favorite subs when you are gone? Are you going to go to another place? How are you going to deal with that? Rob: Oh yeah, we’re going to miss it, because you don’t see anybody out there making the subs the way we have. And if they did, they’d have to be like us – an institution that’s been here so many years. This has been our product and been our pride for so long. Rich: We’ve been fortunate to own the building outright and to own the property outright, so we never had the lease hanging over our heads, so we could pass that on to the customers without having to raise our prices up. Q: How many subs do you guys average a week? Rich: About 500 a day – more on the weekend. Q: What about on Super Bowl Sunday? Rob: We do some catering that day. It also depends on who is in the Super Bowl. If the Patriots are in the Super Bowl, we are very busy. Rich: If the Patriots are in it, it’s like Christmas Eve. And we make it a point to close. We close for the Patriots, so we can all watch it. We could actually wind up closing out by doing the Super Bowl this year [Sunday, Feb. 3] Q: So, do you have any celebrities stop here for a sandwich? Rich: Maybe over the years. ASKS | SEE PAGE 11

Page 10 THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, January 11, 2019 THE SOUNDS OF SAUGUS By Mark Vogler H ere are a few tidbits that you might want to know about this week in Saugus. “For a Safer Saugus” Traffic complaints can become a daily annoyance for elected officials in any city or town if they fall on deaf ears. So, you have to admire the lengths that Town Manager Scott C. Crabtree and the Board of Selectmen are going about the business of gathering public feedback on how to make town roads safer for Saugus pedestrians and riders. The town manager is not only accessible to town residents who want to share their views on how to make Saugus a safer town for residents to walk or drive through. He seems to be persistent in seeking as much public opinion as possible. “I enjoy the discussion as long as we have a common goal,” Crabtree said at this week’s public hearing. The town manager vows he is committed to “trying to make this town safer for pedestrians and traffic” by getting as much public feedback as he can. Of course, traffic safety in any community is potentially one of those hut button issues that you better embrace. The sad part is that there a few people in Saugus who are still trying to politicize the involvement of ordinary citizens. For instance, Bob Davis, one of the organizers of Citizens For A Safer Saugus, complained at Wednesday night’s Board of Selectmen’s meeting that “some people are trying to portray our efforts as political.” “They criticize our bumper stickers and our organizing when in fact they’ve been close witness to the tragedies resulting from speeding on Essex Street,” Davis said. “The bumper stickers were never intended to offend anyone, but instead are being used to create more of an awareness of how changes in traffic safety need to take place in Saugus.” As an outsider watching this unfold, I don’t see the necessity for politics here. But, as we all know, the body politic in Saugus can be brutal at times. A chance for transparency at the Roby School. This should be a no-brainer this year. Saugus Public Schools Superintendent Dr. David DeRuosi is offering any interested Saugus residents the chance for a sneak peak of his proposed School Department Budget for the 2020 fiscal year that begins on July 1. The notice for the public hearing on the budget -- which is set for 6:30 p.m. next Thursday, Jan. 17 -- also mentions that “a copy of the proposed budget will be available after Jan. 15, 2019 in the Office of the Superintendent of Schools, 23 Main St. …. Between the hours of 8:00 AM and 4:00 PM.” But what the heck does “after” mean, in this instance? Could it be Wednesday, Jan. 16? And, what are the particulars that the handful of curious citizens who want to read the superintendent’s proposed spending plan need to know? Will there be copies of the budget handed out to members of the public? Or, will there be just one copy, either pinned to a bulletin board or tethered to a desk? Clarification please. Whichever way the superintendent chooses to disseminate the information is his prerogative as long as it is readily available to the public once he presents it. And there are two good ways. First, he can post it on the School Department website. He could also make a copy available at the library. But anything he presents at next Thursday night’s public hearing he must produce upon request. Stay tuned. Leona’s love for Saugus Leona L. Payson passed away at age 89 in December of 2014. But, the town, particularly the senior citizens who frequent the Saugus Senior Center, continue to feel her love. For the third year in a row, the Saugus Council on Aging received “a generous donation” -- this one of $9,943.80 from the Estate of Leona Payson, according Saugus’ Council on Aging Executive Director Joanne Olsen. “Leona Payson was an active senior at our Center, and has made it clear that she loved the Saugus Senior Center,” Olsen wrote in a Jan. 2 letter to the Board of Selectmen. The donation will be deposited in the Senior Center Gift Account, Olsen added. Payson lived in Saugus for more than 50 years. And her legacy sure lives on through her philanthropy. Xmas tree disposal dates The Town of Saugus announces that Christmas trees will be collected curbside throughout the entire month of January at no cost to residents. Residents may dispose of their Christmas Trees on their regularly scheduled collection day for the next several weeks. Trees should be left near trash and recycling barrels/bins. The last week to dispose of Christmas Trees will be the week of January 28 through February 1, on your regularly scheduled collection day. The Town of Saugus would like to thank everyone for their cooperation. Please contact Solid Waste/ Recycling Coordinator Lorna Cerbone at 781-231-4036 with any questions. Volunteer for your town Here’s another opportunity to get involved in local government. The Saugus Board of Selectmen are accepting applications for appointment of Board of Directors for Saugus’ television cable station. These are volunteer/non paid positions for Saugus residents. Anyone interested should submit a letter of interest and resume no later than Jan. 16, 2019 to the Saugus Board of Selectmen, Saugus Town Hall, Suite 4, 298 Central St., Saugus, MA 01906.

THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, January 11, 2019 Page 11 ASKS | from page 9 My father used to say Wayne Newton [American singer and entertainer] would stop here. Rob: We’ve had numerous hockey players – Boston Bruins players. We had Roger Clemens [former Red Sox pitching great]. Bob Montgomery [former Red Sox catcher and announcer] was a regular customer and he still lives around here. We see him once in a while, and he always has something to say about our subs. Q: Do you have any customers that for them it’s a daily thing to have a sandwich here? Rob: Yes. How about this: We can go wherever we want, and whenever we go away, we’ll have somebody come up to us and say, “Hey, Sub-Villa guys!” We don’t know their names, but we know what they get. That’s from frequent visits. Rich: We have a guy who comes in every morning – bacon, egg and cheese. … Lately, we have some guys who come in, saying “Where are we going to go? Where are we going to go?” Q: So, how many daily regulars do you have? Rob: I would have to say we have 30 to 35 customers who come in here every single day. Rich: We have some people from National Grid who are here in the morning. We open up at six, and we have a full dining room with them taking up our booths by 7:30 a.m.; so they come in five days a week, sometimes on the weekend. Q: Rob, what’s been the most unusual request for a sandwich that you get? Rob: I have one that you wouldn’t think about ordering. But I have a customer who would order a crabmeat sub with four packets of sugar on it. Q: A crabmeat sub with four packets of sugar on it? Rob: Yes. Sugar. To sweeten up that crabmeat. It’s a real sub. That’s what they wanted. Q: Do they have it often or was it a one-shot deal? Rob: No, that’s what they get when they come in. We got to the point where we would make the crabmeat and just give them the sugar and let them put it on. Rich: The strangest one that I got … He wanted four stuffed shells in a roll as a sub. He wanted the stuffed shells. [At this point, a customer interrupts to say that she came down from Maine and this will probably be her last visit.] Rich: We get a lot of Maine customers. We have a few of them tell us that the first thing they do when they come from Logan [International Airport] is stop by here. Any time the ASKS | SEE PAGE 13 Looking for a home loan?

The visitors outscored the hosts 17-8 in the third quarter and were right back in the game, trailing by just six points, 39-33, entering the final eight minutes. An 8-0 run by Peabody to open the fourth quarter restored the deficit back to double digits, and the Sachems were unable to produce another serious rally, getting outscored 22-11 in the final stanza. Saugus head coach Mark Schruender was generally pleased with the effort. “I liked our team’s overall energy. The kids on the bench were really into the game,” he told the press after the contest. “Peabody’s a great team. I don’t have any regrets. I just wish we could’ve started out a little better.” The Sachems were led by Alessia Salzillo with 11 points and seven steals and Marissa Stockwell with 10 points. Forward Molly Granara made her season debut, coming back from an injury. On the other side, freshman Oluchi Okananwa came up big for Peabody with 21 points and 10 boards, followed by 18 points from Kristina Rossignoll and 13 rebounds by Catherine Manning. Saugus is back home on Friday, Jan. 11 to play Gloucester. trol during the first half, as the Tanners jumped ahead 15-5 in the first quarter and held a comfortable 31-16 advantage at the half. The Sachems came out with more intensity in quarter three and applied more pressure defensively and were more aggressive on offense. That strategy worked as Saugus was able to force several Peabody turnovers and Saugus forward Marissa Stockwell goes up for a shot against Peabody.

The visitors tallied in the final minute to force the deadlock after Saugus had battled back from a two-goal deficit. Scores by Nick Aiken, Dante McGrane and Adam Rodrigues put the Sachems up 4-3 before the Mustangs evened it shortly after Saugus had taken the lead in the waning minutes. Saturday’s result left Saugus at 3-2-3 (1-0-2 in the Northeastern Conference) for the season and needing 11 more points to secure a playoff spot.

The out-of-state business is mostly from people who grew up in this area and then moved away. We’ll get them from all week, Saugus earned its third victory of the season by rolling to a 7-1 win at Peabody. over – Texas and Minnesota and Naples, Fla. They all want something shipped to them. When they come, they’ll usually stop first thing from the airport. They’ll make a point of coming three or four times and then taking a bunch back; so lately we’re hearing stories like that as well. Q: What’s the most sandwiches that you have made in one day? Rich: Probably [last] Saturday [after the news that they would be closing]. Probably 800 to a thousand, we’ve done. Sometimes, we’ll do a golf tournament, where we have to do about 400 in addition to what we would normally do. We can handle just about everything, as long as we know the day before, because we have to get our bread baked for us. If it’s a thousand subs, we call in a PAGE 10 1. Bowling 2. Lewis Carroll 3.

(Advocate photos by Greg Phipps) Adam Rodrigues scored three times for his first-ever varsity hat trick while Massey Ventre and Aiken each collected their first career varsity goals. McGrane and Ronnie Paolo added the other tallies, as the Sathousand rolls. Q: So, if your family roots are in Stoneham, how did this business wind up in Saugus? Rich: I can only imagine that our grandfather had the foresight of knowing what Route 1 would be today. Rob: I guess he thought that our original location – where the Dunkin’ Donuts is now located – would be a good spot. And that’s when Route 1 was a dirt road. Q: Anything else you guys want to share? Rich: We want to thank the community for supporting us all of these years, for being dedicated customers; and it’s been a pleasure that our family has been a part of their family. We have to have an honorable mention for my mother, who did the bookkeeping for years, and then my sister, Gail chems had outscored their opponents by a combined 12-1 margin in their three victories. Saugus had also gone 2-0-1 in their last three games heading into Wednesday’s tilt at Marblehead. Eaton, took over. My mom [Lois Santoro] is down in Florida, and everyone she runs into down there knows her. She lives in the Villages. Rob: I have to say what Rich said is spot on. We’ve been in business a long time, and we can’t thank the people enough for the repeated business and the overwhelming response that we got we announced what we were doing [closing]. They have come in and wished us well. It’s very humbling to us, because we honestly didn’t think it would be such an overwhelming response. We figured we’d do an article in the paper and we would go on our way. But it’s become much bigger than what we had thought, and we’re very grateful for it. After being a part of this for over 40 years, it’s our time to start enjoying our lives.
