Vogler T he Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) has denied the town’s request to reduce the speed limit to 25 miles per hour on three major town roads. “Unfortunately, revising the existing speed zones as requested on Lincoln Ave., Main Street and Essex Street would not conform to the current speed regulations,” MassDOT’s District 4 Highway Director, Paul D. Stedman, wrote in a letter last month to the town. “For MassDOT to consider modifying these regulations, the Town of Saugus would have to submit to the district the proper documentation and data for the roadways under their jurisdiction,” StedSECOND MAN IN CHARGE: Saugus Fire Department Deputy Chief Thomas D’Eon Jr. during an interview at his office this week at the Public Safety Building on Hamilton Street. D’Eon has been a member of the local fire service for nearly 15 years. (Saugus Advocate Photo by Mark E. Vogler) Editor’s Note: For this week, we sat down with Saugus Fire Department Deputy Chief Thomas D’Eon Jr. to get some advice on what town residents should do to prevent and protect themselves from electrical fires. D’Eon, a Malden native, is a 15-year veteran of the town’s fire service and the husband of Selectman Jennifer D’Eon. He’s a 1993 graduate of Malden High, where he began dating Jennifer. After he graduated, D’Eon served four years in the U.S. Navy, including duty as a hospital corpsman in Groton, Conn. He was also assigned to the First Battalion 8th Marine Regiment. He was discharged as a petty officer third class in 1997. For several years, D’Eon worked as a licensed plumber before his appointment to the Fire Department in 2004. He went to North Shore Community College and graduated in 2007 with his associate’s degree. He’s currently completing his bachelor’s degree and hopes to go on to get a graduate degree. He and Jennifer have been married nearly 23 years. They have two children: 16-year-old daughter Ally and 12-year-old son Jake. D’Eon has been active as an adult leader in Boy Scouts. He is also a member of William Sutton Masonic Lodge and has been a Mason for 15 years. Some highlights of the interview follow.

View all our listings at: CarpenitoRealEstate.com Selectmen, Stedman also addressed the board’s decision to request 25 MPH speed zones on Bisbee Road, Hanson Road, Iron Works Way, Vinegar Hill Drive and Hitching Hill Road. “Since these roadways are considered private ways, speed limits may be established on them according to the provisions (the second paragraph of) MGL Chapter 90, Section 18,” he wrote. “Please be aware that, should these roads become public ways, a speed study would need to be performed as referenced in the Procedures for Speed Zoning on State Highways and Municipal Roads or the town may opt-in to MGL Chapter 90, Section 17C.” Reaction to the state’s decision was split among two Town Meeting members interviewed yesterday by The Saugus Advocate. Precinct 4 Town Meeting Member Albert J. DiNardo said he believes a small faction of Saugus politicians influenced the selectmen to request the lowering of the speed limit without doing a proper study of the need. “This small political group is wasting people’s time because there is a policy and process to this that needs to be followed,” DiNardo said, referring to a grassroots group called “Citizens For A Safer Saugus,” which has been lobbying for a town-wide 25 MPH speed limit. “I’ve been trying to tell them this for five months – that this has been a waste of time. And this letter proves that I was right,” DiNardo said. No action should be taken on lowering of speed limits until a town-wide study has been conducted, DiNardo suggested. “I’m sure we’ll have a Town Meeting, where we will have some discussion. I hope it’s a Special Town meeting so it’s dedicated to this issue for one evening,” he said. Precinct 6 Town Meeting Member William S. Brown – one of the organizers and leaders of “Citizens For A Safer Saugus” – took umbrage at DiNardo’s remarks. “I don’t think we’re wastLIMITS | SEE PAGE 12 ANGELO’S "Over 40 Years of Excellence!" 1978-2019 Regular Unleaded $2.279 Mid Unleaded $2.639 Super $2.699 Diesel Fuel $2.839 KERO $4.759 Diesel $2.699 FULL SERVE HEATING OIL 24-Hour Burner Service Call for Current Price!

Ruggiero noticed the kitchen lights were off and that the electrical breaker had tripped. He reset the breaker, but the kitchen lights went out again a few minutes after resetting the breaker, according to Saugus Fire Department officials. After resetting the breaker a second time, Ruggiero smelled and saw the smoke coming from the attic vent. “Don’t reset the circuit breaker more than once,” Saugus Fire Department Capt. James Hughes said in an interview this week. “If it trips off the first time you IN THE MUSIC HALL Friday, March 8 LIVIN' ON A BAD NAME Bon Jovi Tribute IN THE MUSIC HALL Saturday, March 9 LAVISH reset it, call the Fire Department right away,” he said. Saugus Fire Chief Michael C. Newbury and State Fire Marshal Peter J. Ostroskey said in a joint press release issued this week that the cause of last Saturday’s fire at 41 Bennett Avenue was electrical. The Saugus Fire Department and State Police assigned to the Office of the State Fire Marshal collaborated on the investigation, assisted by the Saugus electrical inspector. Investigators determined the fire started in the attic above the kitchen and was due to a failure of electrical wiring. Firefighters responded to the Saturday, March 16 WILDFIRE Celebrate St. Paddy's Weekend! fire in the one-family home at about 6 p.m. There were no injuries. But the two residents were displaced.

THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, March 1, 2019 Page 3 ASKS | from page 1 year? What percentage of the fires are electrical? A: I’d have to run the list to give you an accurate number, so I couldn’t really tell you. But they are very common, next to improper disposal of smoking materials; electrical fires are very, very common. We’d have to run an analysis of all structural fires, and a lot of fires wind up being undetermined. Q: So, last weekend’s electrical fire is very typical of the electrical fires you respond to in town? A: Yes. That was a very typical. Because we had a quick response and early notification, that’s why there was a positive outcome. There was damage, but we were able to stop the fire with an aggressive attack. The men really fought on their feet and used great tactics to locate the fire and extinguish it and minimize the damage. Q: So, is an electrical fire something that is easily preventable? A: Is it easily preventable? I would say don’t attempt to do your own electrical work if you are not a licensed electrician, so in that respect, it would be somewhat preventable. If you don’t know how to do electriPAY ATTENTION TO THE WARNING SIGNS: Saugus Fire Department’s Deputy Fire Chief Thomas D’Eon Jr. offers some advice to residents on how they can prevent an electrical fire in their home or respond to it before it becomes damaging and deadly. (Saugus Advocate Photo by Mark E. Vogler) cal work – I would advise people not to do their own electrical work unless they are a licensed electrician. Electricity is potentially dangerous and potentially hazardous. Q: Some of this bad wiring is hidden. A: If it wasn’t done correctly and there are hidden splice points … Any splice points are supposed to be accessible and visible so you can inspect them. You are not supposed to hide them in ceilings where you can’t get at them. Q: So, last Saturday’s fire broke out after the breaker had tripped multiple times and the homeowner tried to reset it twice. A: Breakers are made to pop due to overload, typically. It worked by design when it tripped, but they reset it and it caused a failure at some place in the wiring. Q: So, the prudent thing to do, once it tripped the first time after being reset, would have been to contact the Fire Department right away. A: Yes, they should have. If you left it off and smelled no smoke and there was no sign of fire, you could call a licensed electrician and tell him, “It’s tripped a couple of times; can you come check it out?” It could be a couple of things: You could have a defective fixture or you could have defective wiring; could be a short; could be a defective breaker; you could have a defective splice. You need an electrician to diagnose that type of stuff. Q: Anything else that could have been done in this case? A: No. They called us. That’s best thing they could have done. They realized something was wrong; they smelled something was burning; they smelled smoke and they called us.

But in Saugus, grown-ups seem to love the rush of racing miniature wood cars down a special track just as much as the kids do. The adults – led by Selectman Jennifer D’Eon – have made their own cars to compete tomorrow (Saturday) as Saugus Cub Scout Pack 62 holds its Annual Pinewood Derby in the basement of the Cliftondale Congregational Church at 50 Essex St., Saugus. “The other Troop Leaders and parents are very competitive in the adult open race,” D’Eon said this week. “When I told the guys I was racing Titanic, they threw down the gauntlet immediately! One troop leader told me he is building an iceberg race car to against me! Let’s see how unsinkable does Saturday (March 2nd)!” The Open Race (adults, Boy Scouts, parents and siblings) starts at 10 a.m. Pizza will be served around noon. Cub Scouts start racing around 1 p.m. This free event is for anyone who would like to come down and watch some good, clean family fun. D’Eon designed and built a miniature Titanic on wheels. “My car – ‘Unsinkable’ – in this year’s 2019 Pinewood Derby weighs seven ounces and took about two weeks to complete,” D’Eon said. “My husband and my son both helped me build the Titanic wooden model to place on a wedge racing car. I got the idea from the Boy Scout magazine ‘Boys’ Life,’” she said. “Unsinkable” might look good. But D’Eon has said she’s concerned that it might be too heavy to speed down the track.

D’Eon faces some tough competition, including an entry by her 12-year-old son, Jake, a member of Saugus Boy Scout Troop 62 who will be competing in his sixth Pinewood Derby. “My car is built for speed. Hopefully, I will win,” Jake said of the wedge race car on which he hand-painted flames. Meanwhile, Boy Scout Troop 62 leader John Zirpolo also plans to compete at the annual Pinewood Derby. His car this year features Wile E.

Q: So, if an outlet goes dead, is that something that needs to be dealt with? A: I would definitely look into that, especially if it didn’t trip; if it did not trip the breaker and it’s not working, there’s something definitely wrong. And you should have it looked at immediately. That could be the source for a potential ignition point for a fire.

Then-Cub Scout Pack 280C originated the idea on May 15, 1953, when it held the first Pinewood Derby at the Scout House in Manhattan Beach, Calif. Q: What are some other things you would tell people to protect themselves from an electrical fire? A: I go back to “Don’t do your own electrical work.” That’s the best advice. Use a licensed and insured electrician. Pull permits. Get it inspected. That’s why we have inspectional services. The electrical inspector in this town is a very competent guy, and he’s looking out for the citizen, and he wants to make sure it’s done to code and is safe.

THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, March 1, 2019 Page 5 Town Manager’s FY ’20 budget recommends funds for new traffic enforcement unit within the Police Department By Mark E. Vogler T own Manager Scott C. Crabtree said getting money to fund a new unit staffed by three police officers to oversee traffic enforcement is a top priority in the town budget he is recommending for the 2020 fiscal year that begins July 1. “As a first step in addressing traffic and public safety issues, the budget reflects additional positions in the Police Department as recommended by the Police Chief for a dedicated traffic unit,” Crabtree wrote in a recent three-page letter to the Board of Selectmen. “As you know, public safety has been a top priority for this administration over the years. Police and Fire staffing is at an all-time high, and the Town will continue to identify the public safety needs as we dedicate additional resources to further address the increasing demands of the community,” he wrote. A copy of the town manager’s proposed budget was not available at press time. But the town manager said it would be posted on the town website by early next week. The letter, which was titled “Preliminary Operating Budget Estimate for Fiscal Year 2020,” accompanied the proposed budget submitted by the town manager to the board. Selectmen were scheduled to meet last night with Crabtree to review and vote on his budget recommendations. That essentially kicks off the budget season, which ends in May as the major business to be considered at the Annual Town Meeting. The challenges of fixed costs The total estimated Expenditure Budget is $90,195,521 for the town’s General Fund and $12,170,231 for the Water and Sewer Enterprise Funds, for a total Fiscal Year 2020 estimated expenditure amount of $102,365,752, according to Crabtree. “There are challenges in preparing the estimates of expenditures in this Budget, such as, Town-wide fixed cost increases,” Crabtree said. He estimated that increases in fixed costs could total more than $1.6 million before factoring in contractual wage adjustments. In his budget message to selectmen, he noted: Trash hauling and incineration has been increasing at a concerning rate over the last couple of fiscal years. In addition, due to the changes in the recycling industry involving, specifically, China, the cost of disposal of recyclable materials is on the rise. We are estimating an increase of $395,500.00 in the next fiscal year. 2 Week Night Classes MARCH 18 One Week Day Class APRIL16 School Vacation CALL - ENROLL or Register Online 617-387-9121 HENRYSAUTOSCHOOL.COM EVERETT AUTO SCHOOL “Successful Key To Driving” Since 1938 Gift Certificates Available Dr. Priti Amlani · Restorative Dentistry · Cosmetic Dentistry · Implant Restorations · Zoom Whitening · Teeth in a Day - All on 6 Full Mouth Rehabilitation Before After Dr. Bruce Goldman Dr. Bhavisha Patel · Invisalign · CEREC Crowns (Single visit crowns) · Root Canal Treatment · Sedation Dentistry Health Insurance – The rates have not been finalized by the provider. The Town can expect that the rate will be set within the next few months. Our health insurance provider has advised to conservatively estimate an increase of $945,105. Pension Contribution – The pension appropriation increase of $226,369 for a total payment in Fiscal Year 2020 of $6,951,113 is based on a funding schedule prepared by the Public Employees Retirement Administration Commission (PERAC) to fully fund the pension obligation from 2026 to 2029. The funding schedule was amended based on the most recent actuarial valuation as of January 1, 2017, and voted by the Saugus Retirement System. Regional School Assessments – Vocational education, inclusive of Northeast Regional Vocational and Essex North Shore Tech, is budgeted for $3,779,161 based on estimated numbers provided by the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) on our minimum required contribution. The DESE enrollment estimates for Northeast Regional School have decreased in FY20 as compared to FY19. If you recall, FY19 saw an increase from 198 to 215 students. DESE estimates indicate 192 students next year. As you know, enrollment information is not confirmed by the DESE until April 2019. At that time, we will receive information from Essex North Shore Tech regarding the number of Saugus students they have accepted to their school in September, and Northeast Regional will have their budget Our 80th Year EDUCATION Next Classes DRIVER voted and will have determined our assessment. Adjustments may be required to be made accordingly. Other Insurance – The various property, liability and workers’ compensation insurance premium estimates have been budgeted based on an increase of eight percent over actual fiscal year 2019 premiums recommended by the provider. The premiums will not be finalized until sometime in the spring. The School Department Fiscal Year 2020 estimated budget recommendation is $29,375,250, an increase of $300,000 over the current budget approved by Town Meeting, according to Crabtree. “This increase does not include the indirect costs paid by the Town on behalf of the School Department and included as part of the total Net School Spending [NSS] calculation required by the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education,” Crabtree said. “For Fiscal Year 2018 DESE reports based on budgeted expenditures that the Town of Saugus is 47.1 percent over the required NSS amount up from 41.5 percent in Fiscal Year 2017, an increase of 5.6 percent.” SNOW BLOWER SALES, SERVICE & REPAIRS Pickup/Delivery Available 781-289-6466 www.reverealuminumwindow.com Eastern Bank Bldg. on RT-1 605 Broadway, #301 Saugus, MA 01906 (781) 233-6844 www.bostonnorthdental.com

W orld Series Park in Saugus enters its 15th season this year. Offering not only a great place for amateur baseball, the park has become a place to honor and connect local leaders, charities and businesses. The park’s busy season is just around the corner with hundreds of home games scheduled to host teams and fans in 2019. “We are thrilled to be kicking off our 15th year and looking forward to another exciting season of baseball and bringing the community together,” said World Series Park Superintendent Bob Davis. “Keeping the park vibrant takes the commitment of a lot of great people and longstanding support from great organizations who are connected with and care about Saugus,” he said.

Hughes was able to gain access to the cockloft by a hatch, which allowed him to see where the fire was so that we could get to it and extinguish it. Once he saw, we are able to knock it down quickly,” he said. Fire Capt. Richard Porter was in charge of the fire scene. Fire crews from Lynn, Melrose, Stoneham and Wakefield responded under the town’s mutual aid agreement. Meanwhile, units from Malden and Revere provided station coverage. Six fire engines and two ladder trucks responded to the fire. “Electrical fires are one of the leading causes of home fire deaths,” Ostroskey said. “It is important to have a licensed electrician review your electrical system every 10 years. Small upgrades and repairs can prevent fires.” In 2017, there were 556 electrical fires in homes reported to the Massachusetts Fire Incident Reporting System (MFIRS). These fires caused seven deaths, eight civilian injuries and 59 fire service injuries. Newbury urged Saugus residents to pay attention to these potential warning signs and hazards and to contact the Fire Department immediately if they observe them: Arcs, sparks or short circuits; Sizzling or buzzing sound; and Odors or vague smell of something burning.

But a 20-6 fourth-quarter surge catapulted the Sachems to a 56-39 home triumph Monday night in the first round of the Div. 2 North playoff tournament. For most of the contest, the margin never exceeded single digits for either team. As Saugus entered the final eight minutes up by three at 36-33, guard Alessia Salzillo netted eight of her game-high 14 points to help carry No. 7 Saugus to victory over the 10th-seeded Magicians. The Sachems improved to 14-7 and advanced to take on second-seeded Tewksbury on Thursday (after press deadline). Tewksbury sported a 17-3 record and had a bye in round one. Aiding Salzillo on the offensive end in Monday’s win were Taylor Bogdanski with 13 points, Kiley Ronan with eight (to go with seven rebounds) and Molly Granara and Shaylin Groark with six and five points, respectively. The Sachems produced a 10-6 lead after one quarter and held the edge by a 26-22 count at the half. The third period featured three lead changes before Saugus managed to pull in front by three entering the final stanza. Saugus head coach Mark Schruender acknowledged that his team had all it could handle Monday against a tough Marblehead outfit. “We had so much respect for Marblehead coming in and they showed us why,” he told the press after the game. “Both teams worked all night. Marblehead didn’t quit the whole time, but neither did we. Our team has been so resilient all season, and it really showed tonight.” Schruender described the situation as “survive and advance” with the second-round game on tap Thursday at Tewksbury. “I know they’re an awesome team. They won the [Merrimack Valley Conference], and they’re the number two seed for a reason,” he said. “We’ll have to play hard and probably play our best game of the season to pull out a win.” Saugus guard Alessia Salzillo led the way with 14 points in the Sachems’ first-round win over Marblehead on Monday. Forward Taylor Bogdanski contributed 13 points to the cause in Monday’s playoff victory.

THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, March 1, 2019 Page 9 Saugus boys make Spartans earn 1st-round win By Greg Phipps T he Saugus boys’ basketball team wasn’t given much of a chance to pull off a mighty upset against No. 1 seed St. Mary’s on Tuesday night in the first round of the Div. 3 North playoffs at the Tony Conigliaro Gymnasium in Lynn. The result was as expected. The Spartans came away with a 74-56 victory, but the underdog Sachems acquitted themselves well and made the hosts work for it. Sporting just four regularseason wins coming into the contest, 16th-seeded Saugus was a surprise qualifier for the tournament, and it looked as if the game might become an overwhelmingly one-sided affair when the Spartans, who had 20 victories in the regular season, built up a 21-8 lead after one quarter. Saugus quickly flipped that script by producing an 11-3 run to open the second quarter and pulling within five at 24-19. St. Mary’s regrouped (going on a 15-2 tear) and reestablished a comfortable 39-21 advantage by halftime. That margin increased to more than 20 points early in the third before the resilient Sachems once again fought back and climbed within 50-34 by outscoring the Spartans 13-11 in the quarter. Sophomore guard Joe Lusso was the biggest offensive force for Saugus, constantly putting pressure on the St. Mary’s defense by penetrating to the basket. He finished with 16 points. Christian Correia added nine points and five boards, and Kenny Okoye collected five points and five rebounds. “Obviously, St. Mary’s is the number one team for a reason, and they showed it tonight,” Saugus head coach Mark Bertrand told the press after the game. “Our guys played really hard and never gave up. No one gave us a chance in this one, but we earned the right to be here, and we went out and showed everyone that we can compete out here.” In the end, the Spartans, with their clear size advantage, were just too much to overcome. The game got heated at times, as the Sachems were willing to play physical, make the hosts work for their points and not give up easy baskets. Saugus finished with a 4-17 record but that could be seen as misleading. The 2019-20 season does look promising, with just about all of the team’s regulars returning next year. Jake Morgante, Kyle Cocorochio and James Moise are the three departing seniors. “I couldn’t be happier with how things went this year,” Bertrand said. “We have a very young team and the future is very bright. We’re getting there, and having an experience like this is only going to help our guys going forward.” Saugus guard Joe Lusso goes for this shot attempt against two St. Mary’s defenders on Tuesday night. Lusso scored 16 points in the Sachems’ first-round playoff loss to the top-seeded Spartans. Christian Correia tries to beat Spartan guard Sammy Batista off the dribble in Tuesday’s playoff tilt.

Page 10 THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, March 1, 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. Catching up to the 21st century I’ll be the first person to admit that I’m probably still one of the most low-tech people working in town. But, I’m happy to say that I probably won’t be losing too many more text messages or phone calls that readers or town officials send to my cellphone. On Sunday, I decided to finally part ways with my trusty Jitterbug flip phone and switch over to a more modern Samsung Galaxy S9 – and without increasing my monthly bill that much. When I began working for The Advocate in Saugus three years ago, a few town officials would laugh at me anytime I broke out the Jitterbug. Then, they would ridicule me when I didn’t get their texts or phone messages. As time went on and more people were calling me on the cellphone, I discovered I would lose text messages that I was creating if somebody called or texted me at the same time. I also discovered that I didn’t receive some of those calls and texts. I checked with GreatCall – the company that carries the Jitterbug – and a representative confirmed that I would have to “upgrade” to another phone if I wanted to eliminate that nuisance. To tell you the truth, I wouldn’t mind keeping the Jitterbug if I were fully retired. The Jitterbug is a nice, compact phone that I carry in a small zip-up camera case on my belt. And I put it on vibrate. So, when I’m not driving, I could pull it out and check my messages. The disadvantage for a low-tech guy like myself who is trying to run a small weekly newspaper is that I had to go to the Saugus Public Library anytime I was in Saugus to check my Comcast emails. But with the new cellphone, I can check my emails and phone calls to my home anytime, in the privacy of my car or at the local coffee shop. In fact, I can even respond to them, using my cellphone. I still keep this cellphone on vibrate, but I can tell when somebody is trying to call me at home, because my belt will start to jiggle, indicating that somebody is calling my landline. Neat, but simply the convenience of modern technology. Being a low-tech guy though, there’s a learning curve involved before I get the hang of things. For starters, the Jitterbug wouldn’t even allow Comcast to transfer my contacts and numbers to my new phone. So, late Sunday night, just before midnight, I accidentally called my cousin and his wife while trying to enter their contact information. Then, on Monday, while trying to experiment with my new cellphone by calling my landline – to see if I got the hang of things – I punched the wrong button after putting in my number and I wound up dialing some number in Afghanistan by mistake! Then it took me a couple of hours to figure out how to answer the phone. The people at the store where I bought the phone didn’t make it clear to me that I needed to push a button on the left side of the phone and drag the phone icon to the center of the screen. I finally learned how to answer phone calls by going on the Internet to search for instructions to the phone. So, after working the phone practically all day Monday, I ended the day having coffee with my friend Michael Miller, the airport manager at Lawrence Municipal Airport. He’s been advising me for more than a year to junk my Jitterbug and get this Samsung Galaxy phone. So, he was more than happy to share some helpful tips by actually showing me what I can do with my own phone. Well, this is a big step for me. I was one of the last holdouts on the cellphone. And I didn’t get one until they got rid of the pay phone at Lawrence City Hall. I used to always call my newspaper, using their 1-800-number from a pay phone. But those days are long gone, and so are the days of me using a flip phone. Pinewood Derby tomorrow! Pack 62 will be holding its annual Pine Wood Derby tomorrow (Saturday, March 2) at the Cliftondale Congregational Church (50 Essex St. in Saugus).

Page 12 THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, March 1, 2019 LIMITS | from page 1 ing anybody’s time,” Brown said yesterday. “We’re just trying to bring a serious situation to the light of day. We’re averaging two fatalities a year – whether traffic accidents or pedestrians – and there’s been a 25 percent increase in accidents over the last three years,” he said. “So, the Town of Saugus and the people of Saugus ought to take this a little more serious. We’re pretty disappointed with the ruling of the DOT and the town should have realized it needed more documentation to pass it onto the DOT. The town didn’t have all its ducks in a row,” he said. “And hopefully the ongoing study will be what we need to get these four roads down to a 25 MPH speed limit. We’re hoping that the ongoing study will help provide the data to submit for the four roads,” he said. At this point, it’s not clear whether selectmen will seek the documentation that MassDOT is requiring to justify their request to lower the speed limit. Meanwhile, it’s possible that documentation could come from the ongoing town-wide speed limit analysis commissioned by Town Manager Scott C. Crabtree, which could focus on up to nine primary road corridors in Saugus where new regulations could be considered. The Engineering Corp. (TEC) of Andover has identified Essex Street (east of Route 1), Main Street, Water Street, Hamilton Street, Lincoln Avenue and Central Street and will include up to three additional roadways to be identified by town stakeholders during an upcoming meeting this spring. “TEC will determine the safe speed range for each study area roadway based upon the data collected, including the trial runs, recorded speeds, crash history, and geometry,” the report says. 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 through a consistent, uniform approach,” he said. The study will cost the town up to $39,000, which will be paid for by grant money, according to Crabtree. 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. After hearing testimony from 18 speakers at their Jan. 9 meeting – many of them backing a reduced speed limit – selectmen voted to adopt special speed regulations: 25 MPH on Lincoln Avenue beginning at the Saugus-Revere line northerly .29 miles (remains at 20 MPH .33 miles); 1.29 miles at 25 MPH ending at the Saugus-Lynn line. 25 MPH on Lincoln Avenue beginning at the Lynn-Saugus southerly line 1.29 miles (remains at 20 MPH .33 miles); .29 miles at 25 MPH ending at the Saugus-Revere line. 25 MPH on Main Street easterly from the Saugus-Wakefield line, past the State Highway (.08 miles before the center rotary will remain at 20 MPH) 25 MPH on Main Street westerly from the Saugus Center Rotary to the Saugus-Wakefield line, and 25 MPH on entire length of Essex Street. In supporting the speed limit changes, selectmen went against the recommendation of Interim Saugus Police Chief Ronald Giorgetti, who said he believes the existing speed limits for Essex Street, Main Street and Lincoln Avenue “are appropriately set.” The board’s vice chair, Jeffrey Cicolini, said he respects 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 three roads – in addition to Central Street, which selectmen voted in late January to reduce the speed limit to 25 MPH – always seem to be “filled with cars going beyond reasonable speed.” What you need to request speed zoning Any city or town that wishes to establish a new or modify an existing special speed regulation should follow the detailed process found in the MassDOT Procedures for Speed Zoning. As a part of this request, the municipality is required to submit the following information to their local MassDOT District Office as a part of the engineering study: Preliminary Study of Conditions Speed Calculations on Curves Speed Observations Recent Crash History Trial Runs at Location Massachusetts General Laws (MGL), Chapter 90, Section 17C defines a thickly settled or business district as “the territory contiguous to any way which is built up with structures devoted to business, or the territory Obituary Anthony “Frag” “Fridge” Fragione Jr. ing Friday at Main Street entrance.

If a special speed regulation exists, that posted speed limit will always supersede a statutory speed limit within a thickly settled or business district.

Section 193 of Chapter 218 of the Acts of 2016 allows cities or towns to opt-in to c. 90, § 17C of the MGL, setting the reasonable and proper speed on municipally owned streets within thickly settled or business districts at 25 MPH. This may apply to any or all city or town ways that do not have existing special speed regulations. Notification is required if and when these speed limits are established. Cities and towns have the option to opt-in to MGL c. 90 § 17C, reducing the statutory speed limit from 30 mph to 25 mph in thickly settled or business districts.

A: Yes, that electrical smell, that’s like an ozone smell. When you heat something up to its ignition point, you smell plastic. Q: Let’s talk about appliances: When the plug feels hot when you touch it, it’s time to get rid of it. Can you talk about that? A: My knowledge of that is if it’s getting hot, it could potentially be due to malfunction. It’s drawing too much power, which causes it to overheat and that could cause a fire. Now, you are probably exceeding the amperage for that receptacle. You could have arcs and sparks being thrown, too. Q: Say, in the case of an old electric blanket, could that be a potential problem, too? A: Yes, you could have a broken wire, and the insulation is broken, and it could actually be throwing sparks that are very hot, or particles of metal, and they could hit the carpet, the floor or whatever, and ignite it – or you can have some household materials that happen to be with it. Q: And, as far as placement of an appliance … A: Yeah. We always talk about the chain of events that lead to the outcome of a fire. You could have a defective appliance. It’s in an area that may not be ideal. It may have things piled on it, so it can’t expend the heat. There may be a malfunction with it. Homes can be cluttered here and there sometimes. It could be in the basement, it could be in the garage, it could be anywhere in the house. There are some household items that are flammable; you could have an uncapped Jan. 17. “When and if it comes to the Chamber [House] floor, I would oppose this bill,” Wong said. “I signed on because there were two constituents in my district who asked me to sign on, then I heard from other constituents who oppose the bill. Not only are they against it, but they explained to me why it’s not a good bill.” The proposed legislation includes a provision that would subject any school, league or other entity that allows somebottle of something that is volatile. Papers could ignite. That could happen. There are different combinations of what could go wrong that could lead to the fire. Q: Anything else that you would like to share about electrical fires? Or, maybe a checklist of things you could have people do to protect themselves? A: If you want to expand on the appliances, look for wear on the cords. Make sure the cords aren’t part of the traffic patterns where you are walking around, not under carpets; the wires are not meant to be stepped on or walked on, and make sure they’re not getting pinched in-between things. Q: An electrical cord under the rug is the classic. A: The cord can also wear through under the carpet, and they can also overheat, and you’re holding the heat in with the carpet. There’s a lot going on if you are walking on cords. That’s a huge no-no. If you have a lot of outlets where you run cords like that, you should have a licensed electrician come in and install more receptacles to code. Q: So another hazard leading to a possible electrical fire – over use of extension cords, particularly around the holidays. A: Sure, around the holidays with Christmas trees, it could be deadly. We’re energizing them by wrapping lights around them. They dry out and there are some spectacular videos online on Christmas tree fires and how fast they burn. With all of the synthetic material in houses, too, the fires are more hotter. The houses are insulated, so they retain the heat better, so they’re hotter. Back to the cords – besides not walking on them, not pinching them, not kinking them and not tying them in knots. They can resistance heat if you keep them coiled up. You’re not supposed to do that. If you coil them up, sometimes one in the seventh grade or under to play tackle football to be subject to a civil penalty of up to $2,000 for each violation. Another violation within 12 months could result in a fine of up to $5,000. The penalty could be increased to $10,000 if the violation directly results in serious physical harm to any participant or participants. Wong said he was unaware of the civil fines being part of the legislation and said he opposes them. “The fine [provision] does bother me.” Wong said. the heat can dissipate into the atmosphere. You should immediately discontinue using an appliance if the ground prong has become loose or breaks off. The appliance isn’t safe to use anymore, because it’s not properly grounded, so somebody can get shocked, so take it out of service. There’s not necessarily a law on it, but I would say have an appliance repair person who is qualified to work on your appliance – even replacing the cord. I would advise them to call a reputable appliance repair place to have their appliance replaced. Q: What about lamps? If people want to continue using old lamps, should they consider rewiring them? A: Yeah, you probably would. Obviously, a hobbyist could do that, but I’m not going to advise people to do something on their own where they could burn the house down. Be competent and make sure KITCHEN CABINETS Strip & Refinish To Look Like New 508-840-0501 FURNITURE STRIP & FINISH “A lot of these groups are volunteers. So, if you make the bill too strict, you’ll have no volunteers,” he said. After discussing concerns of constituents involved with Pop Warner, other youth organizations and concerned parents, Wong said he is convinced that local youth organizations are already taking steps to protect children from head injuries. “They have the players playing with their heads upright so they won’t be going helmet to helmet. So, this cuts down on concussions,” Wong said. you know what you are doing before you do it, or hire a licensed professional. It is potentially dangerous and you could start a fire. Another thing you need to “I also feel that it is better for the towns and cities to enforce the rules of contact. I think that organizations like Saugus Pop Warner and other groups are doing a good job in trying to prevent head injuries and concussions,” he said. “I’m thankful to all of the people who tried to contact me to express their concerns – both for and against the bill. The constituents out there are my eyes and ears.” The legislation has been referred to the Joint Committee on Public Health. do is replace cords with frayed wires or cracked insulation. Q: Anything else? A: I think that’s about it. The main thing is don’t mess with your own electrical. 781-321-7700 10% DISCOUNT WITH THIS AD!
