Sarah van Gulden, Priest-in-Charge at St. John’s Episcopal Church. We asked her about what she sees as the role of her parish in the community. Rev. van Gulden, 37, is in the middle of a threeyear assignment at St. John’s, which began in October 2017 and could develop into a long-term arrangement. Prior to coming to Saugus, she worked for three years as the Urban Resident/Assistant to the Rector at St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church in Lynn. Rev. van Gulden was born in Cincinnati, Ohio, and moved to Massachusetts with her family when she was three years old. She is a Duxbury High School graduate who went on to receive her bachelor’s degree at Connecticut College, where she majored in English and French. In 2007 she received her master’s in Divinity from the Episcopal Divinity School, then located in Cambridge and currently in New York City, and she was ordained to the priesthood in 2015. She lives in Rockport with her husband, the Rev. Derek van Gulden, a Vermont native who is pastor of the First Congregational Church (UCC) in Rockport. They met in theological school. As part of her pastoral training, Rev. van Gulden was the Associate for Multigenerational Ministries at St. Mark’s Episcopal Church in Burlington. She focused on creating programs and worship services to help relations between people of all ages. At the same time, she worked as a teacher’s aide for special needs children.

So, we lie between the Roman Catholic Church and the Protestant churches, so our worship is similar to Roman Catholic churches. We have Communion, or Eucharist or Mass every Sunday.

Page 2 THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, February 8, 2019 Walkers and bicyclists at risk T Emergency crews respond to 30 accidents over the past two years, Fire Department records show By Mark E. Vogler he serious injuries suffered by a Main Street couple who were struck by a car in the crosswalk at 345 Central in January of last year was one of 30 motor vehicle accidents over the past two years in which pedestrians or bicyclists were hit. Robert D. Hoffman, 74, who with his wife Judith, 81, who were mowed down by an elderly driver who was later cited by police for failing to stop for pedestrians in the crosswalk, were victims in the most notorious of a dozen crashes that the Fire Department responded to last year, according to log entries reviewed by The Saugus Advocate. There were 18 incidents involving pedestrians or bicyclists being struck during 2017. In an emotional appearance at a public meeting last November, Hoffman told the audience that his wife had passed away in later October because of complications due to the injuries. He also chided public officials for not doing enough to provide pedestrian safety along the Saugus segment of the Northern Strand Community Trail and other walking spots around town.

A draft report is expected to 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. Fire Department emergency crews responded to 30 motor vehicle accidents over the past two years where pedestrians and bicyclists were injured in the crashes. Twenty-three of the accidents involved 24 pedestrians injured by cars, and the other seven accidents involved a dirt bike and six bicycles. Most of the accidents occurred on Broadway (Route 1), 7; Lincoln Ave., 6; Main Street, 4; Essex Street, 3; Walnut Street, 2; and Lynn Fells Parkway.

THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, February 8, 2019 Page 3 Absenteeism Alert School Committee targets major changes in student attendance policy as a top priority By Mark E. Vogler A lenient attendance policy currently allows students of Saugus Public Schools to miss about 40 days of classes during an academic year before they risk losing graduation credit. But school officials will no longer tolerate that kind of absenteeism at the High School and Middle School grade levels next fall if the full committee approves major changes drafted by its policy subcommittee. The new threshold would be 20 or more excused or unexcused absences for a yearlong course and 10 or more for a semester course under the proposed policy that could take effect at the beginning of the 201920 school year. “Students deemed too sick to stay in school by the nurse” will be ineligible to participate that day in athletics and other extracurricular activities, according to the revamped policy being considered. The proposed policy focuses on “chronic absenteeism,” a problem that has plagued the school district in recent years. According to statistics compiled by the state Department of Elementary and Secondary Education, 18.6 percent of students in Saugus Public Schools were “chronically absent” (10 percent or more) during the 2017-18 academic year. That was considerably higher than the state average. Nearly 44 percent of Saugus students were absent 10 or more days with an average of 11.2 absences. The average number of absences statewide was 9.5 with an average of 34 percent of students missing 10 or more days. “What we’re trying to do is establish a common message when it comes to attendance,” School Committee Member Linda Gaieski told members of the Policy Subcommittee she chairs at Wednesday’s meeting. “We have to crack down on chronic and constant absenteeism … This is essential to raising student achievement,” Gaieski said in an interview after the meeting. Gaieski said she was pleased with the overall revisions of the revised policy that must be approved by the full School Committee. “I’m happy that we’re making attendance a priority. I’m happy that we’re cracking down on tardiness,” she said. The revised attendance policy, if adopted, would not affect students in the elementary school grades. “The chronic absenteeism starts in elementary school,” Gaieski said. And that’s an issue that school district should address in the future, she added. Gaieski told colleagues on the policy subcommittee that it’s not unusual for elementary school students to enter the Middle School with an aggregate of 100 or more absences. With a 180-day schoolyear, that would amount to missing a half year of classes, she said. At the request of Athletic Director Terri Pillsbury, the subcommittee included language that would specifically prohibit any students who do not attend classes on a given day because of illness from participating in sports or other extracurricular activities. “The focus is on being a student athlete … You’re a student before being an athlete, and we wanted to tighten that up,” Pillsbury said after the meeting. The subcommittee also tightened up language that deals with tardiness. Every three tardy incidents after 7:45 a.m. (without a medical note) will be the equivalent of one absence. Any subsequent tardy incident after the three tardies will also count as an absence. Students cited for tardiness will be subject to detention. How Saugus ranks on attendance Statistics compiled by the state Department of Elemen“Adult Foster Care of the North Shore has offered unwavering support from day one. When I was admitted for emergency surgery, the AFCNS team made sure my brother was in good hands while I recovered.” Toots, Caregiver to Brother, George tary and Secondary Education for the last academic schoolyear show Saugus Public Schools falling below the average for the state and for school districts in neighboring communities.

(Courtesy photo to The Saugus Advocate) T own Manager Scott C. Crabtree said the town’s multiyear sidewalk improvement project continues to improve pedestrian safety, increase walkability and beautify the community. More than 1,615 feet of brand-new sidewalk panels were placed in town throughout 2018 as part of an ongoing effort that began in 2014, according to a press release issued last week by the town manager’s office. Overall, the project has led to replacement of 7,490 feet of sidewalks. The Public Works Department worked throughout the year to install freshly poured concrete and asphalt along Central Street, Bristow Street, Essex Street, Columbus Avenue, Anawan Avenue, Juliette Road, Stone Street, Intervale Avenue, Castle Street, Dreeme Street, Granite Road, Myrtle Street, Bayfield Road, Birch Street, Heritage Lane, and more, the press release notes. Crabtree, working with the Sidewalk Committee, first directed efforts towards townwide sidewalk improvements in 2012, when the Public Works Department began surveying all of the Town’s sidewalks and identifying the community’s top-most critical infrastructure needs. An extensive, multiyear plan and priority list was then created to improve sidewalks throughout Saugus. “We directed our efforts to the repair and replacement of sidewalks throughout the Town of Saugus in order to continue to put the safety of our residents and walkers first, and to enhance the look and feel of our beloved and historic community,” Crabtree said. The first priority list of sidewalks compiled by the Sidewalk Committee, which was finalized in 2014, has been completed in full. This list included approximately 1,900 feet of sidewalk repairs along Adams Court, Alfred Road, Anawan Avenue, Appleton Street, Avon Street, Central Street, Diane Drive, Essex Street, Jackson Street, Jewett Street, Myrtle Street, Sanders Drive and Sunset Drive. In 2015 approximately 2,100 feet of sidewalk repairs were completed; in 2016 roughly 635 feet of sidewalks were replaced; and in 2017 approximately 1,240 feet of sidewalks were restored. “We are proud to continue to identify and address the Town’s top-most critical sidewalk improvement needs,” Crabtree said. “Ensuring the functionality and safety of the Town’s sidewalks is always of critical importance. Safe sidewalks will benefit [the] Town’s residents and visitors every day, making it easier for everyone to get to where they need to be,” he said. “This is a decades-old matter and there are still additional sidewalks to address. We will continue to work with the Sidewalk Committee to address these efforts each year,” concluded Town Manager Crabtree. He has called on residents who know of a sidewalk that might be in need of repair to report it to the Department of Public Works at 781-231-4143 so that it can be prioritized and considered for next year’s list. For more information, please contact the Town Manager’s Office at 781-231-4111. (Editor’s Note: This story is based on a press release issued last week by Town Manager Scott Crabtree’s Office.)

THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, February 8, 2019 Page 5 Greatest Of All Time (GOAT)? By The Old Sachem, Bill Stewart W OW! Look what the Red Sox team has accomplished this season. Over 100 wins, an MVP and outstanding pitching along with a great outfield – certainly Hall of Fame players and pitchers. The 2018 Red Sox? Yankee fans will dispute this reasoning and tell you about their outstanding teams. Not the 2018 team – I’m talking about the team that opened the new Fenway Park in 1912. The 2018 team had an average of .667 (198 & 64) while the 1912 team had .691 (105 & 47). Yup. They won 105 ASK | from page 1 sexual and transgender] community and all sorts of different types of people. Q: How old is St. John’s in the town of Saugus? A: The original building was built in 1883. I believe the community started gathering earlier than that, so it started in the sanctuary, and as the years have gone on, the church got bigger and different parts have been added on, so the office I’m in now was probably put in during the 1950’s or 1960’s. Q: So, the oldest part of the church … A: Is the actual sanctuary. It started out as a little church and has grown over the years. We have lots of different parts: We have church schoolrooms, function hall rooms; we have a stage. There used to be a theatre company that met here, and we have a separate chapel as well, so we have lots of great space for different uses. Q: So, what the current membership of the church? A: Membership is hard to tell. There are the people who come to church on Sundays, and between the two services – we have one at 8 and one at 10; the one at 10 has music and church school – between the two services we average between 60 and 70. But our official membership is much larger than that, probably in the 100’s or 150’s. Q: So, how many people would you get to turn out at your annual meeting? A: I don’t know what the turn* A Delta Dental Premier Provider Dr. Mario Abdennour, Dr. Bhavisha Patel, Dr. Priti Amlani, Dr. Bruce Goldman and team. out for the annual meeting was, but on Christmas and Easter we usually get around 100 people. That’s what we get for the big, special days, if not more than that. As it’s true for a lot of churches now, many people who grew up here no longer attend, but they still consider St. John’s their church, so when they need a baptism, a wedding or a funeral, they come home to St. John’s. Q: You have a chapel that was one of the churches that merged with St. John’s? A: Yes, St. Luke’s from MalASKS | SEE PAGE 18 www.reverealuminumwindow.com on a 152-game schedule then won the first World Series over the New York Giants in eight games. This was the second World Series win for the Sox. They tied the record of the 1903 team with only 47 losses in a season. This was the 12th year of the franchise and they opened up the new Fenway Park that included a 10-foot slope in left field. Fans were allowed to stand on the field in left at the top of the slope to better see the game. The great outfield included “Tris” Speaker, whose nickname was Spoke, Harry Hooper and Duffy Lewis. Spoke batted .383 with 222 hits in 580 at bats, along Bill Stewart The Old Sachem with 10 home runs and 90 RBIs. During this period the ball was much softer than the ball today, so hitting for distance was tough. Hooper batted .242 with 143 hits in 590 at bats with two home runs and 53 RBIs. Duffy Lewis batted .284 with 165 hits in 581 at bats, six home runs and 109 RBIs. Third baseman Larry Gardner batted .315 with 163 hits on 517 at bats, three home runs and 86 RBIs. Jake Stahl, the first baseman and team manager, batted .301 with 98 hits on 326 at bats, three home runs and 60 RBIs. The other starters: Bill “Rough” Carrigan hit .263; Steve Yerkes hit .252; and Heinie Wagner hit .274. Wagner added two home runs. In RBIs, Carrigan had 24, Yerkes, 42, and Wagner, 68. Speaker and Hooper are both in the National Baseball Hall of Fame. Speaker still holds the career record for the Red Sox with 792 career doubles. Spoke was known for his unassisted double plays as the center fielder. He even pulled one off in the World Series. Lewis was second in the league with his 109 RBIs. Speaker was the major league baseball leader with an on-base percentage of .464; he led the American League with 10 home runs, was second in the AL with 136 runs scored, third in the AL with his batting average GREATEST| SEE PAGE 6 SNOW BLOWER SALES, SERVICE & REPAIRS Pickup/Delivery Available 781-289-6466

Wood was the major league baseball leader with his 34 wins and his 10 shutouts. He was second in the AL with an ERA of 1.91 and 258 strikeouts. The team led the league in runs scored, 799, and the fewest runs allowed, 544. They led in team batting average at .277; doubles, 269; home runs, 29; RBIs, 654; and fewest errors, 267. The pitching staff led the league in complete games, 108; strikeouts, 712; shutouts, 18; and fewest walks allowed, 385. The World Series was monumental in that they played eight games. The Sox won the first in the Polo Grounds, 4-3. They moved to Fenway Park for the next two games, the second a 6-6 tie that was suspended after 11 innings due to darkness. No lights in those days. Game three saw the Giants win, 2-1, to even the series. The Red Sox won game four in the Polo Grounds, 3-1, to lead the series. Game five was back in Fenway with the Sox winning, 2-1. Back to the Polo Grounds for game six and the Giants won, 5-2. The Giants took the seventh game at Fenway, 114, to even the series again. Smoky Joe won the eighth game to wrap up the series in the Sox favor, 3-2, in 11 innings. Additionally, the new park was a sight to behold to Bostonians. Fenway hosted the National High School Footbal l Championship be - tween Oak Park, and Everett in 1912. Sadly, the home towners lost, 32-14. Before the season started, the Sox played a scrimmage against Harvard and won, 2-zip, encountering snow flurries along the way. Amateur teams were allowed to use the new diamond and local newspaper teams; the Christian Science Monitors played the Somerville Independents twice, an 8-8 tie on July 27 in 12 innings (halted by darkness) and 4-1 on August 3. On August 8 the Monitors beat the Boston Transcripts, 2-1. August 10 saw the Winthrop Knights of Columbus eke out a 3-1 victory in seven innings over the Lynn Elks. Fenway Park has been a treat for high school games through the years, and in 1912 Boston Latin and Boston English had their football game at Fenway, Latin winning, 7-6. Now the park hosts many high school baseball and football games and included a few New England Patriots games; I got to see a few while a student at Boston University. Now they have added hockey and other winter events to keep the park busy year-round.

THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, February 8, 2019 Page 7 North Shore Philharmonic Orchestra Winter Concert – Sun., Feb. 17 at Swampscott High School Highlighted by Joseph Foley playing Trumpet Concerto by Johann Nepomuk Hummel M usic Director Robert Lehmann will conduct the North Shore Philharmonic Orchestra (NSPO) in its Winter Concert with a program highlighted by trumpeter Joseph Foley playing the Trumpet Concerto by Johann Nepomuk Hummel on Sunday, February 17 at 3 p.m. at Swampscott High School. Antonín Dvořák’s “Slavonic Dances” and Robert Schumann’s Symphony No. 4 complete the program. Tickets are $30, $25 for seniors and students, and children 12 and under are admitted free. Tickets will be available at the door on the day of the concert and are available for advance purchase through NSPO’s website, www. nspo.org.

First written for trumpets in the “pre-valve” age, it’s wide range and inflection and dancing quality has made it a popular staple of the classical repertoire. Soloist Joseph Foley is well known throughout New England The North Shore Philharmonic Orchestra will perform the Winter Concert of its 71st Dvořák, Hummel and Schumann. as principal trumpet of both the Rhode Island Philharmonic and Portland (Maine) Symphony Orchestra. He has performed with the Boston Pops, the Boston Classical Orchestra and the Boston Landmarks Orchestra, and his recording “Nightsongs” (with Bonnie Anderson) earned critical praise. Robert Schumann’s Symphony No. 4 is a brilliant, if controversial, example of the composer’s work. While some have considered it to contain errors in orchestration, others have regarded it as daring and innovative. Regardless of historical commentary, the work has grown to be regarded as one of the great symphonies of all time. Leonard Bernstein recorded the work with the New York Philharmonic and praised its “image of Romantic Man, the Artist-God, escaping from the treacherous earth on the aerial currents of a masterpiece.” Schumann’s Fourth is today regarded as rising above the blinders and conventions of its time. Antonín Dvořák wrote the Slavonic Dances as a series of 16 orchestral pieces in 1878 and 1866. The NSPO will play Nos. 6, 7 and 8 of Opus 46. Dvorak was inspired to write the dances by the work of Johannes Brahms, whose Hungarian Dances were highly regarded. The North Shore Philharmonic Orchestra plays three subscription concerts at Swampscott High School. The 2018-2019 season marks NSPO’s 71st Anniversary. NSPO is supported in part by a grant from the Swampscott Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.

Page 14 THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, February 8, 2019 Sachems icemen inching closer to postseason spot By Greg Phipps T hanks to some solid defensive play and sturdy goaltending, the Saugus High School hockey team advanced closer to a spot in the state tournament with a win and a tie in action last week. Goalie Jack Devereaux faced 56 shots combined in the two contests and gave up just one score. In last Wednesday’s 2-0 victory at Medford, Devereaux was airtight, steering away 27 shots and opening the door for his team to come away with a big win. Nick Aiken’s first-period goal off assists from Ronnie Paolo and Lorenzo Keegan turned out to be all the Sachems would need. Adam Rodrigues provided some late-game insurance when he took a feed from Joe Cross and popped home an empty-netter in the final minutes. The win was Saugus’s second straight after suffering four straight defeats. Last Saturday at Kasabuski Memorial Rink, the Sachems could not extend the winning streak but remained unbeaten through three games by playing to a 1-1 tie against the Marblehead Magicians. Prior to the game, Saugus Head Coach Jeff Natalucci told the press that his squad would need to bring its best effort against the Magicians. “We need points here over our last five games, so we have to be ready to go,” he said. Despite being outshot 2918 in the game, Saugus drew first blood when Richie Mauro scored off an assist from Dante McGrane early in the second period. Marblehead evened it late in the second, and that’s how it would remain through the final 15 minutes. The Sachems need four Saugus goalie Jack Devereaux allowed just one tally in the team’s two games last week. One of those contests was a shutout win over Medford. points over their final four contests to make the playoffs. They played always-tough Danvers at Endicott College in Beverly on Wednesday (after press deadline) and host Cambridge Rindge & Latin on Saturday at Kasabuski Rink. Sachem boys can’t close out Highlanders in tough loss By Greg Phipps with a 57-54 triumph. Saugus led 14-11 after one H aving captured their second win of the season two days earlier, the Saugus Sachems made a serious bid for victory number three in boys’ basketball action against the Somerville Highlanders last Thursday at John W. Towers gym. Christian Correia ended up compiling a career-best 32 points, nearly leading the Sachems to the win. But the visiting Highlanders were able to nail two clutch, late-game three-pointers to come away quarter, then fell behind by a 33-26 margin at halftime. With the aid of nine points from Correia, Saugus climbed back to even the contest at 41 apiece entering the fourth period. The teams went back and forth through most of the final period before the Sachems pulled out to a 54-51 advantage in the final minutes. That’s when consecutive treys by Somerville left Saugus looking up at a 57-54 deficit with 1.5 seconds on the clock, not enough time to get off a workable shot. Other key contributors for Saugus were Joe Lusso with nine points and Kenny Okoye with seven. The defeat dropped Saugus’s record to 2-12 overall. The Sachems played at Malden on Tuesday and travel to face Swampscott on Friday. They defeated Medford, 65-62, last Tuesday. After the Somerville loss, Saugus head coach Mark Bertrand was pleased with his team’s resolve and ability to respond, especially coming off the win over Medford two nights before. ”You have to give Somerville credit, they hit two clutch, back-to-back threes but we played hard,” he told the press. “We executed [the way] we had to and I couldn’t be any prouder. For Saugus’s Christian Correia established a career-high in points with 32 in last Thursday’s home loss to Somerville. this young team to get the win the other night and to come back with no letdown tonight, we are really starting to find our stride.” Saugus girls earn playoff bid An across-the-board scoring attack lifted the Saugus girls’ team to a 44-26 win over Malden on Tuesday night. The victory earned the Sachems a place in the state tournament, as they improved their season record to 10-7. Alessia Salzillo collected eight points, followed by Kiley Ronan and Taylor Bogdanski with seven each and Marissa Stockwell with five. Last Thursday, the Sachems grabbed their ninth win by rolling over Somerville, 6433. Twelve players made it into the scoring column for Saugus, which sought win number 11 against Fontbonne Academy on Wednesday (after press deadline).

Page 16 THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, February 8, 2019 Beacon Hill Roll Call By Bob Katzen By Bob Katzen THE HOUSE AND SENATE. Beacon Hill Roll Call records local legislators’ votes on roll calls from the week of January 28-February 1. POST JOINT COMMITTEE ROLL CALLS ON WEBSITE (H 2021) House 47-101, rejected and Senate 39-0, approved a proposed joint rule that would require all joint committee roll call calls to be posted on the Legislature’s website. Current rules require committee votes to be kept in the offices of the committee and be available for public inspection upon reasonable notice and during regular office hours. Committee roll calls show whether legislators on the committee voted to give a favorable or unfavorable report to bills before they go to the House or Senate floor for consideration. Supporters said this would simply give people quick and easy access to the committee votes of their legislators. They noted that under current rules, a person has to drive to Boston during regular business hours in order to obtain this information. Opponents offered no arguments. Beacon Hill Roll Call asked the offices of Speaker Bob DeLeo (D-Winthrop) and Rep. Bill Galvin (D-Canton), chief author of the House rules, why they and most Democrats voted against this. Neither office responded. (A “Yes” vote is for requiring that all joint committee votes be posted on the Legislature’s website.A “No” vote is against the requirement.) Rep. RoseLee Vincent No Rep. Donald Wong No Sen. Brendan Crighton Yes POST ALL HOUSE COMMITTEE ROLL CALLS ON WEBSITE (H 2019) House 44-113, rejected a proposed House rule that would amend a current House rule that requires all House committee roll calls to be posted on the Legislature’s website if the vote is held in person and recorded manually. The amendment would also require that the same posting mandate apply to House committee votes taken via e-mail or other electronic means. Current rules require these electronic committee votes to be kept in the offices of the committee and be available for public inspection upon reasonable notice and during regular office hours. Committee roll calls show whether legislators on the committee voted to give a favorable or unfavorable report to bills before they go to the House floor for consideration. Supporters said this illogical loophole must be closed in order to assure all House committee roll calls are posted on the website. Opponents offered no arguments. Beacon Hill Roll Call asked the offices of Speaker Bob DeLeo (D-Winthrop) and Rep. Bill Galvin (D-Canton), chief author of the House rules, why they and most Democrats voted against this. Neither office responded. (A “Yes” vote is for requiring that all House committee votes be posted on the Legislature’s website. A “No” vote is against the requirement). Rep. RoseLee Vincent No Rep. Donald Wong No ALLOW 72 HOURS TO READ LEGISLATION (H 2019) House 55-103, rejected a proposed House rule that would increase from 24 hours to 72 hours the amount of time that representatives must be given a bill to read and review before it is debated on the House floor. The 72-hour rule could be suspended for an emergency if waived by a two-thirds vote. Supporters said this will prevent bills from being rushed onto the House floor and voted upon without legislators having time to read them. They cited the uproar in the U.S. Congress several years ago, when members were not given time to read the 1,000page health care bill. They noted the rule could be suspended by a two-thirds vote in case of an emergency. Opponents of the rule said it goes too far and that requiring 72-hour notice would make it very difficult for the Legislature to act during an emergency. They argued members usually are given sufficient time to read bills and, in most cases, the bills have already received attention and press coverage. They said the proposed rule is well intentioned but unnecessary and may do harm. (A “Yes” vote is for the rule requiring 72-hour notice. A “No” vote is against it.) Rep. RoseLee Vincent No Rep. Donald Wong Yes ALLOW HOUSE WORKERS TO FORM A UNION (H 2019) House 9-149, rejected aproposed House rule that would give employees of the House of Representatives the right to form and organize into a union and benefit from collective bargaining. Supporters said currently the 480 House employees are prohibited from forming a union. They noted these hardworking, mostly young employees should have the same rights to form a union as do hundreds of thousands of other state workers. They noted there is no one to protect these workers when harassment and mistreatment issues arise. Some opponents said the workers could initiate and fight for a union if they wanted one. Others said the proposal should be filed as a bill and have a public hearing and a very open process and not be rushed through with no transparency and adopted as a House rule. (A “Yes” vote is for the proposed rule allowing House employees to form a union. A “No” vote is against it.) Rep. RoseLee Vincent No Rep. Donald Wong No CONFLICTS BETWEEN HOUSE SESSIONS AND COMMITTEE HEARINGS (H 2019) House 35-123, rejected a proposed House rule to reduce the scheduling conflicts between formal House sessions and committee hearings. Formal sessions are ones at which important legislation is often considered by the full House and sometimes includes roll call votes. Current rules prohibit committee hearings “insofar as practical” from being scheduled at the same time as formal sessions of the House. The proposed rule would prohibit committee hearings from being scheduled at the same time as formal sessions unless there is an emergency and the chair of the committee submits to the House a written description of the emergency. Supporters said the current rule is weak and vague. They argued that legislators shouldn’t have to choose between attending an important committee hearing and a key meeting of the full House. Opponents said committee hearings are scheduled well in advance in order to give citizens adequate notice to arrange their schedules to be there. They noted that if this proposed rule is implemented, the House will inconvenience the public when it reschedules a committee hearing to another day. They argued that current rules already allow some flexibility and have been working well. (A “Yes” vote is for the proposed rule. A “No” vote is against it.) Rep. RoseLee VincentNo Rep. Donald Wong Yes PUT AUDIT ONLINE (H 2019) House 35-123, rejected a proposed House rule that would require the House Clerk to post copies of the annual audit of the Legislature online. The current rule only requires that copies of the audit be “made available to the members and the general public upon request.” Supporters said the audit of the Legislature’s finances should be made available on the state’s website instead of requiring people to travel to Boston to get it. They argued this new rule would foster transparency. Amendment opponents said individual legislators can request a copy and place it on their own website. (A “Yes” vote is for requiring online posting. A “No” vote is against requiring it.) Rep. RoseLee Vincent No Rep. Donald Wong Yes TERM LIMITS FOR SPEAKER (H 2019) House 43-113, voted against aproposed House rule that would prohibit any member from serving as speaker for more than eight consecutive years, with the exemption of current Speaker Bob DeLeo. The term limit was originally adopted by the House as part of a rules package that was approved in 2009 but it was repealed in 2015, thus allowing DeLeo to continue as speaker Speaker DeLeo was a champion of the 8-year limit when it was approved during his first year as speaker in January 2009. In 2015, he said that his position on term limits has “evolved” during his tenure as speaker. At that time, he said, “I wouldn’t say I’m going back on my word as much as the fact that over six years, rightly or wrongly, I feel I have learned in terms of what the importance is of doing away with the term limits we have in the rules.” DeLeo has now been speaker for 10 years and won re-election to the post in early January. Supporters said that lack of term limits breeds cynicism and mistrust among voters. They argued that term limits prevent anyone from becoming “Speaker for Life.”They noted that the indictments and convictions of the three prior speakers, Charlie Flaherty, Tom Finneran and Sal DiMasi, prove that too much power for too long is a problem. Some said that term limits will help facilitate turnover so that a woman can eventually become speaker. Opponents of term limits said the voters elect their representatives and the representatives, not some arbitrary term limit, should decide who leads the House. They said this restriction would make a speaker serving his final two years a lame duck. They noted that it would reduce the speaker’s power in dealing with Gov. Charlie Baker and Senate President Karen Spilka. (A “Yes” vote is for the 8-year term limit. A “No” vote is against the limit.) Rep. RoseLee Vincent No Rep. Donald Wong Yes EQUAL PAY FOR ALL LEGISLATORS (H 2019) House 5-152, rejected a proposed House rule that would require the House’s director of Human Resources and the Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) Officer to develop a proposal by November 15, 2020 for the equitable compensation of all House members. Supporters said members should earn the same amount of money regardless of what leadership position they hold or what committee they chair. They noted the proposal is based on the pay structure for the U.S. Congress where only a few positions have higher salaries. They said that this pay equity will eliminate members siding with the speaker in order to get a plum committee assignment. Opponents said the speaker and representatives in the leadership and committee chairs have a much heavier work load and deserve a higher salary. They said this issue was settled in January 2017 when the Legislature overrode Gov. Baker’s veto of some legislative pay hikes. They noted the director of Human Resources and the EEO Officer could not legally adjust the base salary of a legislator because of a constitutional amendment that increases or decreases legislative salaries to the same rate as increases or decreases in the median household income for the commonwealth for the preceding two-year period, as determined by the governor. (A “Yes” vote is for equal pay. A “No” vote is against it.) Rep. RoseLee Vincent No Rep. Donald Wong No TELEVISE INFORMAL SENATE SESSIONS (S 9) Senate 39-0, approved a joint rule requiring the Joint Committee on Rules to study and issue a report on the feasibility of online broadcasting of informal sessions of the House and Senate in the same manner and format as formal sessions are currently broadcast.

Page 18 THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, February 8, 2019 ASK | from page 5 den, I believe it was in 2008. St. Luke’s was a very small church, a very small congregation, so they were thinking about what their future looked like, and merging made the most sense for them, so they took some time to think about what churches matched who they were and who God needed them to be, and so they decided that St. John’s here in Saugus was the right match for them, so the altar from Malden was brought here and we have St. Luke’s Chapel. Q: Now, have there been other churches that merged with St. John’s? A: No. That was the only merger we’ve had, but there are two other congregations. Sunday afternoons, the True Vine Baptist Church meets in the sanctuary, and then downstairs, My Father’s House meets. It’s a nondenominational Pentecostal church, so one church has merged with us and we’ve leased out space to other churches, and we have AA groups and Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts. We try to use our space as much as possible. Q: At its peak, do you know what the membership was for St. John’s? A: That’s a great question. I’d have to go back and look. I BEACON | from page 16 proved or rejected on an unrecorded voice vote. However, at an informal session, a single legislator can hold up consideration of a bill until the next formal session by doubting the presence of a quorum. A quorum is when 81 members of the House or 21 members of the Senate are present. Since only a handful of legislators attend these sessions, the session would be adjourned for lack of a quorum. Supporters said that some informal sessions are not the brief, quiet sessions that they used to be. They said major legislation is sometimes approved at informal sessions and the public should be able to watch these online. (A “Yes” vote is for the study.) Sen. Brendan Crighton Yes CONFERENCE COMMITTEE REPORTS BY 5 P.M. (S 9) Senate 8-31, rejected a proposed new joint rule requiring that legislators receive a copy of any conference committee version of a bill by 5 p.m. on the day prior to voting on the bill. Current rules set the deadline at 8 p.m. Both rules prohibit the Legislature from voting on the bill prior to 1 p.m. the following day. would assume that probably in the 50’s and 60’s, you would get at least 200 people in the church every Sunday, so probably, more than double what we are getting now, and that’s just all of the adults. It doesn’t include the children. Certainly, membership has declined because there are a lot more things to do on Sundays than there were in the 1950’s, 60’s –- and even 80’s when I was growing up. There’s sports; the malls are opened up; there are movies – lots of other things you can be doing other than church. I think Sunday has kind of lost its meaning as the Sabbath Day for Christians: as a day of rest, a day to be with your family and to worship God. Q: It seems going to church doesn’t hold much prominence in the lives of young families nowadays – modern families. A: Yes, and I’m sort of at the beginning of the millennial generation, I guess, and I’m probably part of the last wave of youth that grew up going to church, so people younger than me have been to church only for Easter and Christmas, or have never been to church, which isn’t something that they automatically think of, so at times of crisis when they need Supporters of the new rule said the 8 p.m. deadline gives members only 17 hours to read and understand what are often long and complicated bills. They argued the 5 p.m. deadline would give legislators three more hours to read the measure. Opponents of the new rule said the 8 p.m. deadline has worked well for several years. They noted the extra three hours between 5 p.m. and 8 p.m. is often when the staff completes the package of the report. (A “Yes” vote is for the 5 p.m. deadline. A “No” vote is against the 5 p.m. deadline and favors the current 8 p.m. one.) Sen. Brendan Crighton No MATTERS ALLOWED AT INFORMAL SESSIONS (S 8) Senate 6-33, rejected a rule that would prohibit tax hikes from being considered at an informal session of the Senate. Informal sessions are ones in which there can be no roll call votes and everything is approved or rejected on an unrecorded voice vote. Supporters of the rule said it is unfair to allow tax hikes to be brought up at these lightly attended sessions often without informing members of the agenda. Opponents said the rule something, they don’t think of church as an option, especially in the New England area. I think the scandal involving the priest abuse has scared a lot of people off in general, not just in certain denominations. Q: I guess with the Episcopal Church only being a couple of words different in the liturgy for a given service, people can relate to that. A: Yes … a lot of Episcopalians are former Roman Catholics, so the main difference … in the Episcopal Church, we don’t have a Pope. We do have Bishops. I, as a priest, have pledged the Bishop will be my kind of authority as I would at any Episcopal church. But each parish has its independence, so the Bishop can’t come in and tell the church what to do. There are certain laws that govern us, but it’s not as if there’s a topdown person who says “This is what you do” and “This is what you believe.” But, in terms of worship, the main difference is that when we celebrate Eucharist, Communion, the Mass, we believe that the bread and the wine is – through the act of the Holy Spirit – is made into the presence of Jesus. Not the actual body and blood, but the presence, the essence of and the spirit was and is for us ... that when we take in the bread and is unnecessary because any single member who shows up at a lightly attended informal session can doubt the presence of a quorum, and at which point the session would end because there is not a quorum. (A “Yes” vote is for prohibiting tax hikes from being brought up at informal sessions. A “No” vote is against the restriction.) Sen. Brendan Crighton No SESSIONS BEYOND MIDNIGHT (S 8) Senate 6-33, rejected a rule requiring a unanimous vote in order for any Senate session to continue beyond midnight. Current law requires a two-thirds vote to go past midnight. Supporters said requiring unanimous consent will virtually put an end to post-midnight sessions. They argued it is unnecessary and irresponsible to work while legislators are exhausted and taxpayers are asleep. Opponents said the rule is undemocratic and will allow one legislator to end Senate debate and action. (A “Yes” vote is for requiring a unanimous vote to continue beyond midnight. A “No” vote is against requiring it.) Sen. Brendan Crighton No the wine or the body and the blood, we do believe we are taking Jesus’ spirit into us. For me, it’s really a rejuvenating experience and kind of like getting ready for the next week. Q: So, in the Catholic Church, the people take the bread, but not the wine as part of the Communion. A: The focus [in the Catholic Church] is more on giving out the bread or the body, where in the Episcopal Church, we do both [bread and wine or body and blood] … Although, we do have some former Catholics who prefer not to receive wine, so there’s more flexibility. There are some people who don’t take Communion. They come up, and I give them a blessing. We have some kids who do First Communion who don’t. In the Episcopal Church, we’re known as the middle way. We try to be Protestant and Roman Catholic, borrowing from both traditions. Q: But anyone can go up and receive [Communion], whether they are Episcopalian or not, right? A: Yes. The National Episcopal Church law says that as long as you are a baptized Christian, you can receive Communion. At many Episcopal Churches in this area, including St. John’s, anyone can receive Communion. We don’t ask for a baptism HARASSMENT PREVENTION TRAINING FOR REPRESENTATIVES State representatives of both parties attended a mandatory harassment training session last week. The session lasted slightly under an hour and went over the policy and procedures in place to address sexual harassment issues and allegations. It also outlined the resources available to an aggrieved party. “It was a helpful and informative introductory session to the new policies and procedures in place to deal with the variety of issues that sexual harassment presents,” said House Republican Minority Leader Brad Jones (R-North Reading.)“It will be the first of many such training/educational sessions with future offerings designed to cover the entire legislative staff.” HOW LONG WAS LAST WEEK’S SESSION? Beacon Hill Roll Call tracks the length of time that the House and Senate were in session each week. Many legislators say that legislative sessions are only one aspect of the Legislature’s job and that a lot of important work is done outside of the House and Senate chambers. They note that their jobs also involve committee work, research, constituent work and other matters that are imporcard to prove you are one thing or not. Anyone is free to receive, but we do ask that they come and receive reverently … that they understand this is something important that we do as a community and everyone is invited to. Q: What’s the most interesting or worthwhile community project that the church is involved in these days? A: Right now, we are part of Healthy Students – Healthy Saugus project that each week puts together 53 bags of food for kids who go hungry on weekends, so we were part of the founding of that project and we, once a month, pack bags and collect food for that. We’re collecting food for the Food Pantry. We are also part of Every Child Deserves a Smile in which we provide meals and gift cards to families living in the motels along Route 1. Right now we’re kind of in a reflective process. We want to be out in the community more, so we are trying to figure out the best way to do that. What does Saugus need and what are our gifts and strengths? Part of that conversation is in dealing with the school system, so this morning the school superintendent came and gave a presentation to our Bible Study ASKS | SEE PAGE 19 tant to their districts. Critics say that the Legislature does not meet regularly or long enough to debate and vote in public view on the thousands of pieces of legislation that have been filed. They note that the infrequency and brief length of sessions are misguided and lead to irresponsible late-night sessions and a mad rush to act on dozens of bills in the days immediately preceding the end of an annual session. During the week of January 28-February 1, the House met for a total of nine hours and 12 minutes while the Senate met for a total of four hours and 31 minutes. MON.

THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, February 8, 2019 Page 19 ASK | from page 18 Class. It was not about the Bible – sort of like “What are public schools like now?” I’ve heard that Saugus Public Schools have not had the best reputation, so Dr. DeRuosi came and talked to us about the challenges of the public school system and what all the schools are now expected to undertake – with kids having specific needs – whether it’s emotional or intellectual or grandparents raising kids, so the way that the kids have the best future is if the schools and the community work together, so we’re starting to have conversations with him [Dr. DeRuosi] and other school administrators to find out how St. John’s can be a part of that: that partnership. Which is exciting, but also scary, because we don’t know where we are going to end up, so we’re trying to be patient. We don’t want to rush into anything we’re going to do if it’s not what we feel like we need to be doing. Q: On Wednesdays you have been having conversations with church members or wantto-be church members over coffee and tea. A: Yes. Every Wednesday, 10 [a.m.] to 12 [noon], I’m at Dunkin’ at Hamilton Street, and it’s been great. I started it last summer, sort of as a way to get out of my office, because I know church can be an intimidating place – the building – there’s a lot of doors and you may not know how to get in, and you may not want to go and meet someone strange. Is the priest a real person or just some sort of figure? So, I started doing the office hours there, and it’s been great. It’s been fun to get to know the people at Dunkin’ Donuts and for people to see there’s a female priest. And they ask me, “Are you Roman Catholic?” and “What does that collar mean?” And I think it’s been a great opportunity for parishioners to be with me and to be with one another and to have church there in their own way, to share what’s going well and what’s not going so well. We’ve had some really great conversations about family illness, addiction, depression and other things that people may not come to talk to me about, but when they see me they say, “Oh, I’ll sit down for a cup of coffee.” And it’s a lot less intimidating. Q: Have you gotten any new members as a result of the coffee hours? A: The goal is not new members, is more about awareness: that people know that St. John’s is still active and still ASKS | SEE PAGE 20 Looking for a home loan? WE ’RE HERE TO DO RIGHT BY YOU .

Q: What would you say the mission of St. John’s is, within the context of Saugus? A: I don’t know. That’s a great question. Q: Or, if you don’t have one, what would you like it to be? A: In my wildest dreams, I would hope that St. John’s would be a place where each person in Saugus knew they are welcome here, either for worship, for Bible study or to come to Dunkin’ Donuts or to come help us with the community outreach program – that St. John’s is more than just a place of worship. That there are multiple ways that people can come here and engage in the life of the church – we have a lot of space that can be used for all sorts of different things, whether for afterschool programs or free workstations during the day or sports groups. So, it’s really how can we be open to the community as much as possible so people say, “Oh, let’s go to St. John’s and do this.” It’s not just worship. Q: What’s the most interesting thing you know about St. John’s Episcopal Church in Saugus? A: That’s hard to say, but there’s one interesting thing I can talk about. We have a hotdog guild here at St. John’s. Every Sunday after worship, we have a coffee hour. There’s coffee, there’s tea, there’s goodies, there’s cake, but, four times a year, we have hotdogs after Sunday worship. Q: A hotdog guild? A: Yes! But it’s great. After church we have hotdogs, buns and all the fixins. It just makes it special. Q: So, how long has the hotdog guild been in existence? A: Ten to 15 years? I think quite a while. It’s kind of an underground thing. When I first heard about it, I said, “A hotdog guild!” I’ve never heard of a church having one, and called “Thimble Theater” featured the Oyl family and what sailor? 1. On Feb. 8, 1910, what youth organization was founded? (Hint: BSA.) 2. What flower is most traditional for Valentine’s Day? 3. What screen actress starred in “Places in the Heart,” “Steel Magnolias” and “Norma Rae”? 4. Who wrote the “Little Old New York” newspaper column and went on to host “The Toast of the Town”?

On the 6th floor of what Washington, D.C., building would you find a basketball court called The Highest Court in the Land? 10. On Feb. 10, 1893, what multitalented performer was born?

We’ve had a Potato Sunday and Shepherd’s Pie Sunday. On Sundays we love to eat. Q: So the hotdog guild, their primary thing four times a year is to make sure there are some hotdogs after church. A: Yes, they pick a date and they provide hotdogs that Sunday. Q: Anything else that you would like to share? A: St. John’s has two wonderful things about it: One, it’s a very close family – the congregation – they know each other; they rely on each other. There aren’t any cliques, you know, this group vs. another group. There is a sense of a cohesive family. And we’re also extremely welcoming. Everyone is welcome into the family, which I think is a unique gift in a church because many churches are either very welcoming, but then they have special interests or cliques within the congregation, or they are just one big family that doesn’t know how to welcome new people, so I think that’s what really unique about St. John’s. “the sunny beach of Peppermint Bay”? 13. Who had a big hit singing about burning love? 14. What has been called “love apple”? 15. How many chambers are in the human heart? 16.

S THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, February 8, 2019 Our 80th Year EDUCATION O by Jim Miller Helping Seniors Extend Their Driving Years Dear Savvy Senior, What tips or resources can you recommend to help elderly seniors extend their driving years? My dad, who’s 82, is still a decent driver, but I worry about his safety going forward. Inquiring Daughter Dear Inquiring, With more than 40 million licensed drivers in the U.S. over the age of 65, there are lots of resources available today to help keep older drivers safe and behind the wheel longer. Here are some simple steps you can take to help keep your dad driving safely. Get his eyes checked: Because about 90 percent of the information necessary to drive is received through our eyes, getting your dad’s eyes checked every year to be sure his vision and eyewear is up to par is an important first step. Check his meds: Does your dad take any medicine or combination of medicines that make him sleepy, light-headed or loopy? If so, make a list of all his medications (prescription and over-the-counter) and dietary supplements, and take it to his doctor or pharmacist for a review. You can also get help with this online at RoadwiseRX.com. Evaluate his driving: To stay on top of any potential driving issues, you should take a ride with your dad from time-totime watching for problem areas, such as: Does he drive at inappropriate speeds, tailgate or drift between lanes? Does he have difficulty seeing, backing up or changing lanes? Does he react slowly, get confused easily or make poor driving decisions? For more tips, see the National Caregivers Library driving assessment checklist at SeniorDriverChecklist.org. If your dad needs a more thorough evaluation, you can turn to a driver rehabilitation specialist who’s trained to evaluate older drivers. This type of assessment typically costs between $100 and $200. To locate a professional in your area, visit AOTA.org/older-driver or ADED.net. Take a refresher course: AAA and AARP both have older driver refresher courses that can help your dad tune-up his driving skills, and learn how to adjust for slower reflexes, weaker vision and other age-related changes that affect driving. Taking a class may also earn him a discount on his auto insurance. To locate a class, contact your local AAA (AAA. com), or AARP (AARP.org/drive, 888-227-7669). Most courses cost around $15 to $30 and can be taken in the classroom or online. Another good resource to look into is CarFit. This is a free assessment program that will help your dad adjust his vehicle for a better fit, making it easier and safer to drive. CarFit events are held around the country in select locations. See Car-Fit.org to look for one near you. Make some adjustments: Recognizing your dad’s driving vulnerabilities and making small changes on when and where he drives can go a long way in helping keep him safe and driving longer. Adjustments may include not driving after dark or during rush hour traffic, avoiding major highways or other busy roads, and not driving in poor weather conditions. You can find more tips at AAA Senior Driving at SeniorDriving.AAA.com. And finally, when it gets to the point that your dad’s driving isn’t safe anymore and he needs to quit, The Hartford Financial Services Group and MIT AgeLab offers two helpful resources. Go to TheHartford.com/lifetime – click on “Publications” on the menu bar – and download or order the “At the Crossroads” and/or “We Need to Talk” guides. Send your senior questions to: Savvy Senior, P.O. Box 5443, Norman, OK 73070, or visit SavvySenior.org.
