THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, April 12, 2019 Page 3 Town Meeting Members approve two-year moratorium on multifamily housing developments By Mark E. Vogler D evelopers will be banned from building multifamily dwellings of three or more units for two years, as a result of an article approved at Monday’s Special Town Meeting. The Planning Board had misgivings about the proposed moratorium, voting 3-1 to not recommend the article to the 50-member body during a meeting held last Friday on the four zoning articles. But Town Meeting members approved an amendment to clarify language in Article 4 and then approved the measure without any vocal dissent. “This article will protect any developers who have received their building permits and are in phases of completing projects, such as Essex Landing,” Town Meeting Member Michael J. Serino of Precinct 10 said of the amendment he introduced. The amendment inserted the following language in the article: “This moratorium shall not apply to building permits for future phases of any project Hilltop Steakhouse once stood as an example of why Article 4 is needed. “I believe there’s too much residential being built in town right now,” Serino told fellow Town Meeting members. “I took a look at the AvalonBay property, and there’s about 312,000 square feet of residential vs. 24,000 of commercial – about eight percent. It’s all residential. And it’s all these developers want to do – is put resiTHE MAIN EVENT: Town Meeting members took less than an hour to pass seven articles at Monday night’s (April 8) Special Town Meeting. They spent about 25 minutes on the article for a two-year moratorium on multifamily housing development – but that passed resoundingly. (Saugus Advocate Photo by Mark E. Vogler) which has obtained all required permits and approvals except building permits prior to the effective date of this bylaw.” Planning Board Chair Peter A. Rossetti, Jr., who is also a Town Meeting member in Precinct 2, said Planning Board members supported the concept of a moratorium, but had concerns about the wording. Rossetti said he couldn’t speak for fellow Planning Board members as to whether the amendment would address their concerns. The article – one of seven measures on the warrant requested by Town Manager Scott C. Crabtree – would order that no new building permits be issued for the construction of multifamily dwellings consisting of three or more dwelling units in any zoning district in the town for a period of two years. “Too much residential” This explanation is provided by the warrant prepared for the Special Town Meeting: “The reason for this temporary moratorium is that the Town is experiencing an unanticipated increase in the construction of multi-family dwellings and, as a result, the town is conducting an analysis and/or comprehensive study to determine the impact of said construction on police, fire, and emergency public safety, the school district, the water, sewer, and roadway infrastructures, and the safety of the general public.” Serino cited the AvalonBay Communities development on the Route 1 property where the dential up,” he said. “We need to take a step back $3.39 $2.55 GALLON GALLON We accept: MasterCard * Visa * & Discover Price Subject to Change without notice 100 Gal.

Vogler C larice MacDonald has offered to teach a 100-hour course to people interested in working in the field of permanent cosmetics because she’s troubled by the lack of training that’s available. “We’re one of the only states that’s not licensed,” MacDonald told the Saugus Board of Health this week, as she made an offer they didn’t refuse. “It’s whatever the town says goes,” she said. She said that two-day classes are not enough to train people in her field. MacDonald, a Saugus resident and licensed aesthetician with more than 20 years of experience in makeup application, color theory and brow shaping, said the situation is so bad that she had to fly to Florida, Texas and Toronto, Canada, to get the training she needed for her career. She owns Blink Permanent Cosmetics, which opened last year at 184 Broadway in Saugus. “I spent $30,000 all over the place for training,” she told the board before members voted 5-0 to give her a temporary license for teaching body art classes, with the proviso that she meet with temporary Director of Public Health Frank Giacalone “to iron details.” “You can go forward,” Board of Health Chair William Heffernan said. “We need to figure out what kind of permit we’ll issue and whether there’s a fee involved,” he said. Heffernan was particularly impressed by the research and thoroughness of MacDonald’s presentation. “It’s a pleasure seeing you prepared,” Heffernan told her. Board of Health Member Maria Tamagna was impressed, too, with MacDonald’s interest in taking steps to make her field more professional. “I would give her my seal of approval to go on and train other people,” Tamagna said. She said her recommendation was based on “my personal experience and as a nurse.” “Clarice is more than qualified,” she said. MacDonald and board members discussed ways to improve the local regulation and licensure of people in the permanent cosmetics field. But Heffernan said that would require the drafting of new town bylaws after careful study.

As part of the ongoing capital improvements to the town’s water infrastructure, the project also includes replacement of about 1,000 linear feet of water line and a water main on Highland Avenue. This will improve water flow for the new Saugus Middle-High School under construction and will address concerns of residents who live in the neighborhood near the school. “This project will have a positive impact on the entire neighborhood,” declared an informational sheet on the article that was provided to Town Meeting members. Article 2, which authorizes the town to borrow $500,000 for a comprehensive plan for reconfiguration of the space at Evans Park, including basketball courts, tennis court, security, parking, lighting, grading and drainage. This is a continuation of the town’s capital improvements to its parks and playgrounds, which was identified as a need in 2015. Article 3, which permits the town to pay $30,000 out of free cash to replace a failed HVAC chiller compressor unit at the Veterans Memorial Elementary School. This project includes removal, replacement and installation of equipment related to the school’s air-conditioning system. In addition to approving Article 4 (see related story), which establishes a two-year moratorium on the issuance of new building permits for multifamily dwellings, Town Meeting members approved three other articles to amend the zoning bylaws: Article 5 adds a table of use and parking regulations for bed-and-breakfast establishments under the residential category of the zoning bylaws. The intent is to move bed-andbreakfast places out of residential areas. Article 6 adds the following new definition of short-term rental: “an owner-occupied, tenant occupied or non-owner occupied property including, but not limited to, an apartment, house, cottage, condominium or a furnished accommodation that is not a hotel, motel, lodging house or bed and breakfast establishment. A Short-term Rental shall mean rooms being rented for a period of not more than thirty one (31) consecutive calendar days.” The new definition is deAward-Winning Landscaping Servicing the North Shore for over 38 Years signed to get short-term rentals out of residential districts. Article 7 deletes the word “Unit” from the definition Lodging Unit and replaces it with the word “House” as to read “Lodging House.” The following is added to the end of the existing definition: “No more than four roomers shall be allowed.” Thus, the entire “Lodging House” definition shall read as follows: “Lodging House: One or more rooms for the use of one or more individuals not living as a single housekeeping unit and not having cooking facilities. A lodging house shall include rooms in boarding houses, tourist houses and rooming houses. No more than four roomers shall be allowed.” The intent is to move lodging houses out of residential areas.

Saugus is one of 12 communities that make up the regional vocational school district. Crabtree offered his estimate during the meeting after school officials briefed the Finance Committee on developments in the new building project being considered. Northeast Metro Tech Superintendent-Director David S. DiBarri said the school district has been invited by the Massachusetts School Building Authority (MSBA) to the feasibility stage of the project, which he estimates will take 18 months to two years – to complete a study at a cost estimated at $1.3 to $1.4 million. Funds have already been set aside for the study, so there would be no need for school officials to seek additional funds from Saugus and other communities. “We won’t be asking Saugus for a penny until construction,” DiBarri said. If everything proceeds as hoped, that stage of the project could be happening during 2022, according to DiBarri. He noted that about 72 percent of the costs would be reimbursed by the MSBA. Crabtree mentioned several times that he thought the town would be looking at ballpark cost of $25 million, a million-dollar-a-year investment if bonded over a 30-year period. “I’m not sure with that number,” DiBarri said. The total district assessment for the 2020 fiscal year from the 12 communities is $14.7 million, with Saugus paying the most ($3.2 million) or about 22 percent. At the same time, there are 192 Saugus residents of the 1,242 students expected for the fiscal year – 15.5 percent of the school’s enrollment.

THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, April 12, 2019 Page 7 More Stats By The Old Sachem, Bill Stewart L ast week we looked at the premier batting statistics. Few of these are used by Fantasy Baseball players. The best stat used is OPS, which I listed last week but could use being defined again because fantasy players use it all the time. To refresh your memory – OPS stands for the amount of times a batter gets on base combined with the slugging percentage. A value of 100 is the league average for a player so a valuable player will be well over 100. Mookie Betts finished 2018 with an OPS of 1.078 to lead MLB and was closely followed by J.D. Martinez with a value of 1.031. One of the most notable stats for teams is WAR, or Wins Above Replacement. This stat is used to calculate how many more wins a player is worth over another possible player at the same position. As you can see it tells how valuable a player is or who should be traded for. The calculation for position is as follows: the number of runs above average a player is worth in batting, baserunning and fielding with adjustments for position, league, number of runs provided by a replacement player, divided by runs per win. The goal is to win games, and WAR gives the value of each player on a roster. A WAR of zero player should be replaced, and a value of 8 is about where an MVP would place. Because it includes defense for emphasis it strongly values players. Obviously, it is not so useful for designated hitters. Pitchers are evaluated differently. The computations use either RA9 or FIP. The numbers are adjusted for league and ballpark. Using league averages determines how many wins a pitcher is worth based on those numbers and the innings pitched. FIP is similar to ERA, but it focuses solely on the events a pitcher has the most control over – strikeouts, unintentional walks, hit-by-pitches and home runs. It entirely removes results on balls hit into the field of play. For example: If a pitcher has surrendered a high average on balls in play, his FIP will likely be lower than his ERA. Balls in play are not part of the FIP equation because a pitcher is believed to have limited control over their outcome. Where the “FIP constant” puts FIP onto the same scale as the entire league’s ERA: ((HR x 13) + (3 x (BB + HBP)) - (2 x K)) / IP + FIP constant. Because FIP is limited to the events a pitcher has the most control over, it’s arguably a better tool than ERA for evaluating a pitcher’s effectiveness. It’s also useful for predicting a pitcher’s future results because a pitcher has little control over what happens once the ball is put in play behind him. A pitcher with a low FIP but a high ERA has most likely seen a string of bad luck on balls in play. He could be a buy-low candidate, assuming he eventually gets leagueaverage results on balls in play. RA9 is different: runs allowed per nine innings pitched, which is Earned Run Average per nine innings (ERA) after removing the E. In other words, how many runs did the pitcher allow – forgetting about bad defensive play behind him? A relevant pitching statistic is Quality Starts. A starting pitcher has a quality start if he completes at least six innings and permits less than four runs. Baserunners per nine innings pitched is another pitching stat as is the Fly Ball Rate and Home Runs per nine innings. All of these are adjusted to each nine innings pitched, although today pitchers infrequently pitch more than six innings. The last pitching stat for today is Home Runs to Fly Ball rate HR/FB. This tells us whether or not the pitcher is able to keep the hitters from solid swings. This stat, like many others, has to be adjusted for the park; Fenway’s right field line is close to the batter, but a batter evaluated for the old New York Giants field faced a five hundred drive to center field to hit one out, nearly impossible. Now we look at the Ballpark Factor referred to in many other statistics. Ballpark factor takes the runs scored by Team X and its competitors in Team X’s home ballpark and divides the figure by the runs scored by Team X and its competitors in Team X’s road contests. In 2018, 849 runs were scored at Coors Field, and 676 runs were scored in Rockies games away from Coors Field. Coors Field had a park factor of 1.271, when looking at runs scored. Park factor is a great way of determining the extent to which a stadium favors hitters or pitchers. It isn’t affected by the teams or players involved, because those teams and players are also playing games in ATM on site Bill Stewart The Old Sachem other stadiums. It simply compares how easy it is to score, from one ballpark to another. It’s important to know where your players’ games will be played and how that might affect their performance. Park factors can also be determined for singular statistics, such as home runs. So a player who plays his games in a park with a high home run factor is likely to hit for more power than usual. Knowing the effects of a ballpark can be useful for streamlining players – especially pitchers – whose results tend to vary depending on the stadium they’re pitching in. Now you have enough knowledge of the game to tackle Fantasy Baseball. Good Luck. Friday, April 12 at 8 PM The Musical Styling of...

DiBarri said it’s not yet clear what Saugus’s share would be if the district decides to build a new school instead of doing a major renovation of the existing building. He said the actual cost of the project will be determined by the school feasibility study. What is known is that Saugus’s share of the assessment for the new vocational school will be based on its student enrollment as of October, he said.

That means if Saugus Town Meeting members or another community rejected it, the next step would be a popular vote in all 12 communities. A majority vote would pass the project whether Saugus voters approved it or not. DiBarri is confident that a majority vote of residents in all 12 communities would approve the new school project. But putting the project off a year would increase the costs for Saugus and the other communities, he said. Crabtree agreed: “It could add significant costs if it’s delayed a year.” But the town manager said a new vocational school building is needed desperately. “The building is a dinosaur,” Crabtree said. Despite the building’s condition, “the education is phenomenal there,” he added. To do capital improvements over the next 30 years would cost more than a new school,” DiBarri said. STARTING AT

Page 10 THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, April 12, 2019 Mystic Valley Elder Services hosts annual Legislative Briefing Legislative priorities relating to older adults hot topics of discussion M ystic Valley Elder Services (MVES) recently hosted its annual legislative briefing at its headquarters (300 Commercial St. in Malden). MVES Board President Kathleen Beaulieu and Chief Executive Officer Daniel O’Leary were joined by legislative cohosts State Senator Patricia Jehlen and State Representative Christine Barber to speak to a standingroom-only crowd of local legislators, town officials and MVES board members and staff. O’Leary and the legislators addressed three priority legislative bills that affect older people: the “Enough Pay to Stay” initiative to increase funding for the direct home care workforce; the expansion of the home care program to more effectively address behavioral and mental health issues; and the push for an extension of the home care “middle income” pilot program. He also outlined budget priorities for fiscal year 2020, which include supporting Supplemental Budget Language for Home Care Network Technology Trust, supporting Funding for the Elderly Nutrition Program, including Meals on Wheels and Congregate Dining, and expanding Funding for Elder Supportive Housing. State Senators Jason Lewis and Sal DiDomenico and State Representatives Paul Brodeur, Michael Day, Paul Donato, Joseph McGonagle, RoseLee Vincent and Donald Wong participated in the event along with staff from the offices of State Senator Bruce Tarr and State Representatives Bradley Jones and Stephen Ultrino. Medford Mayor Stephanie Burke, Melrose Mayor Gail Infurna, Chelsea City Manager Thomas Ambrosino and North Reading Town Administrator Michael Gilleberto also attended. Joining the program this year were two special guest speakers: Lionette Jasmin, a resident of Everett and home health aide with Associated Home Care; and MVES client Carole Nolan, from Malden. Jasmin, who has been a home health aide for 30 years, spoke on the passion she has for her job and her clients but also explained the challenges she faces, such as low wages, long hours and lack of training. She cares deeply for the well-being of her clients but needs to work two jobs and long hours seven days a week to try to make ends meet. The financial burden Jasmin faces creates a lot of stress. Jasmin has noticed that the burden of care for home health aides has demonstrably increased over the years. “Reliance on home health aides is growing, and there seems to be little progress on improving wages, training or career prospects,” she said. Nolan, the second guest speaker, shared her inspirational story.

Concerned about her onset of depression, Nolan approached the MVES Residential Services Coordinator (RSC) at her building. Realizing Nolan’s difficulty, the RSC referred her to Amy Foreman, a clinical caseworker in the Clinical Programs Department at MVES. Foreman, with Nolan’s permission, enrolled her into the Mobile Mental Health program, a program in which clinical caseworkers provide outreach to older adults experiencing mental health conditions that impact their functioning and ability to meet life’s daily challenges. Since Nolan has been enrolled in the program, her bouts of depression have declined. Nolan really likes that her counselor comes to her home once a week as part of the program. “It is much better now MVES | SEE PAGE 12

THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, April 12, 2019 Page 13 where he was a standout athlete and set school records in the high jump and as a member of the 4x400 indoor track relay team. He studied music and philosophy at Marlboro College in Vermont. He later attended Drake University, where he received a bachelor’s degree in religious studies. He later served 14 years in the Iowa State Legislature (1993-2006), where he represented residents of downtown Des Moines and surrounding neighborhoods. He was later a candidate for governor and the U.S. House of Representatives. Since leaving politics, he has made a career as a radio talk show host with the “Fallon Forum,” one of the few independent talk shows in Iowa. It airs on six radio stations. He directs Bold Iowa, which fights for climate action. He walked 200 miles from Normandy Beach to Paris in November 2015 in advance of the U.N. Climate Summit. He and his partner, Kathy Byrnes, grow much of their food on their urban farm in downtown Des Moines – about 30 varieties of fruits and vegetables. They also raise hens and bees. They hang their laundry instead of using a drier. Biking and walking are their primary forms of transportation. Besides his mother, he has two brothers – William of Danvers and Lawrence of Acton – and a sister, Carolyn of Lynn. Some highlights of the interview follow. Q: Please tell me about your recent two-week tour that took you to Massachusetts with a recent stop in Saugus. A: I organized a march of 50 people across the country to raise awareness about climate change. I have since written a book about the experience called “Marcher, Walker, Pilgrim.” My partner, Kathy Byrnes, and I traveled from Iowa to Saugus and back, giving 14 presentations in six states. I read from the book, discussed the 3,000 mile march across the country for climate action and spoke of the work we’re doing in Iowa now to get presidential candidates to prioritize climate change. We’ve met with your senator, Elizabeth Warren, multiple times. Q: How many years did you live in Saugus? A: 17. Q: Do you still consider it your hometown? A: I consider Des Moines, Iowa, my hometown since I’ve been there 35 years. Q: How long did you spend in Saugus and what did you do during your recent visit? A: We were there Friday night through Monday morning, enjoyed a wonderful sunny weekend visiting my siblings, helping my mom out around the yard, eating Kane’s Donuts (They are the best!)and watching the Red Sox. Q: What was your favorite Kane’s donut? Did they have it this time? A: Favorite Kane’s donut is buttercrunch, and I had one and a half. Also, nearly every time I come to Saugus I have my hair A: St. Margaret’s Troop and Star rank. Q: How often do you get back to Saugus? A: Once or twice a year. Q: And what have you noticed as far as changes to the town, the character of the town and the people. A: Not a lot, really – very much the same. Q: I understand you went to A NEW BOOK FOR THE LIBRARY: Left to right, Saugus Public Library Director Alan Thibeault, Shirley Fallon of Saugus and her son, Ed Fallon, of Des Moines, Iowa. Ed and his mother showed up at the library on Monday morning (April 8) to donate a copy of Ed’s new book, “Marcher, Walker, Pilgrim,” which is about the 2014 march he organized to raise awareness about climate change. cut at George’s. This time I didn’t need to, but I love that place, which I believe is the oldest barber shop in the U.S. owned by the same family. Q: A review I read of the book tells about your “rebellious departure from the Catholic Church at the age of 16.” Was that here in Saugus? A: St. Margaret’s. Q: Was that a youthful overreaction? A: Yup. I’d have handled it a lot differently these days. I think the priest was out of line, but there were better ways to address my displeasure. Q: Please share with us how growing up in Saugus shaped the person you are today? A: The [Rumney] Marsh was particularly important to me, developing my love for nature and understanding of the importance of protecting our planet. I organized two cleanups of the marsh when I was a teenager, and am very happy to see that it is still preserved. Q: Did you visit the marsh on your recent trip? A: I usually visit the marsh when I’m back, but didn’t squeeze it in this time. Q: And you mentioned organizing some cleanups. Was this with the Boy Scouts, or did you work with some local environmental groups? A: The cleanups were organized by me and a handful of neighbors, one of them old enough to own and drive a pickup truck. We hauled away several loads of trash. I also remember a guy named Tibbetts [first name?] who walked with me around the marsh a couple times and told me what some of the birds were. One year, two snowy owls showed up, and that was pretty amazing. I also remember learning that the area inside the race track (the side toward Lynn) was home to a big colony of black crowned night herons that I would sit and watch for a long time. It’s very gratifying that the marsh has been protected, and I hope the residents of Saugus remain vigilant and committed to maintaining and respecting it. Q: So, are you a bird-watcher or Audubon guy? And that would have been a direct result of your time spent at the marsh? A: Yes, my fascination with birds and nature in general definitely sprung from the many hours I spent exploring the marsh. I would also fish there, and learned the edible wild plants one could eat from the marsh and in the surrounding woodlands. Q: Any Saugus people you looked up to as heroes during your childhood here? A: I spent many summers in Ireland as a kid, with my uncles on their farm, and I was so attracted to farming that I regarded some of the older farmers in the area as my mentors and heroes. Q: Any fond childhood memories of time spent in Saugus? A: Loved going to Fenway Park with the Saugus Boy Scout Troop. And since I was the troop bugler, I would play during the games while we sat in the bleachers, which only cost a buck back then. And I loved watching [Boston Red Sox baseball star] Carl Yastrzemski. His son and my brother went to school together. Q: What Boy Scout troop and what rank did you reach? Lynnfield to make a special visit. Please tell me about that. A: Kathy, my mom and I stopped at my dad’s grave, unplanned. I decided to leave him a copy of my book. One of the chapters – “Father and Son” – is about him and very meaningful to me. Also, the wood for my walking stick and the wood for his coffin came from the same forest in northeast Iowa, both made by monks at the New Melleray Abbey near Dubuque. Q: “The Great March for Climate Action” – other than the global issue, are there any Saugus connections to this march? Either Saugus people involved in the march or contributions from people in the town? A: Some people in Saugus donated to help support it, but I would have to go back to records to remember who. I do know that my mom contributed to our laundry fund so we could buy equipment to wash and hang laundry in our camp after a day’s march. Q: You donated a copy of your book to the Saugus Public Library. What are some of the main reasons why you think this book is very relevant to the people of Saugus, as far as your message and as far as the content? A: Climate change is relevant to all of us. It’s an existential threat that’s now out of hand and must be addressed immediately. Perhaps readers will also appreciate the amazing adventure and sacrifice of the march and the personal stories and struggles I went through at the time. The book can be purchased at boldiowa.com, and all proceeds go to support our climate change work. Q: Have you gotten any feedback you can share from Saugus residents about the book since it’s come out? A: My brother Bill and sister and mom read it, but haven’t heard from anyone else yet. Q: Were there any people from Saugus, besides your parents, who may have influenced you in writing this book? A: Not really. Q: Do you have any advice to offer to the people of Saugus, as far as what they can do as far as climate action or looking out for the environment? A: Improve public transit, make streets safer for bicycles and pedestrians (some of the sidewalks are in rough shape, and sometimes cars block them so you have to walk in the street), hang your laundry and try to support local businesses and farmers. Q: In some of the articles about you, you describe yourself as “a recovering politician.” How so? A: I served for 14 years, and while I’m jesting a bit, there’s an adjustment to make back into other work. Q: Is that to say you will never get involved again? A: Not sure, but it’s not on my radar. Q: So, you found it a good learning experience, but acknowledge that it does take its toll? A: Yes. And I found I could make a difference both in and outside politics. Q: And looking back, would you have run for public office again, knowing what you know now? A: Sure. Q: Please tell me, what is your game plan for tackling the issue of climate change? A: To raise awareness through my book and now, especially, through getting presidential candidates and the media to take it more seriously. www.reverealuminumwindow.com

By Mark E. Vogler W hen Mary O’Connell saw the book, she knew it wouldn’t take too much imagination to find the right floral arrangement. “I love flowers, I love van Gogh and I love books,” O’Connell said of her entry in the Fifth Annual “Books in Bloom” event at the Saugus Public Library (SPL). O’Connell, head of the Reference Department at the Saugus Public Library, said her mind was made up after settling on the book “The Sunflowers are Mine” by Martin Bailey – a story that focuses on artist Vincent van Gogh’s famous masterpiece series of sunflower still lifes. “Sunflowers are my favorite flowers. And because I love them, it was an easy choice,” O’Connell said. “And I found a vase at a tag sale,” she said Friday. Her entry was one of 40 on display last LOVE THAT LAVENDER: Saugonian Paul Desantis said the pretty lavender-colored flowers and their fragrance drew him to the second floor table he chose at the Saugus Public Library last Friday (April 5) “to relax and do some research.” The floral arrangement assembled by Monique Todd to go with the book “Homeland” by R.A. Salvatore was one of 40 entries submitted for the Fifth Annual “Books in Bloom” event held at the Saugus Public Library last Friday and Saturday. (Saugus Advocate Photos by Mark E.

Anyone climbing up the staircase to the second floor got to see O’Connell’s entry. Meanwhile, Joanie Allbee, an artist who loves painting eagles, used her passion for nature to showcase her exhibit that centered around “The National Geographic Field Guide to the Birds of North America,” which features an eagle on the cover. Allbee, who is also a Saugus Garden Club member, used one of her paintings to go with a floral arrangement that included a stuffed eagle in a nest to match up with the book. “I just have a love for eagles,” Jean Brunco of the Saugus Garden Club matched up some flowers with the book “Tony’s Wife” by Adriana Trigiani. Allbee said. “In Alaska, I used to spend my time with the eagles. I lived in A TRIBUTE TO EAGLES: Joanie Allbee, an artist who loves painting eagles, used one of her paintings to go with a floral arrangement that included a stuffed eagle in a nest to match up to “The National Geographic Field Guide to the Birds of North America,” which features an eagle on the cover.

She recalled having close encounters with eagles while working as a volunteer at an animal shelter. “I just feel that in my first with things I love,” she said.

She also had the same colored balls of yarn to match up to the ones depicted on the book cover. FOR THE BIRDS: Doris Napier, of the New Friends of the Saugus Public Library, shows off the floral arrangement – which includes a birdhouse – to go with the book “Build Your Own Birdhouses” by John Perkins. MY FAVORITES: Mary O’Connell, head of the Reference Department at the Saugus Public Library, says she loves sunflowers and the artist Vincent van Gogh. So, it was only natural – after reading “The Sunflowers are Mine” by Martin Bailey (the story about van Gogh’s masterpiece) – to match the book up with her favorite flowers, sunflowers, at this year’s “Books in Bloom” event. A TRUE STORY: Saugus Garden Club Co-President Joyce Rodenhiser stands near her exhibit with flowers matched to the book “Born a Crime: Stories from a South African Childhood” by Trevor Noah, a South African comedian and star of late night TV in America. The book focuses on Noah being born to a Swiss father and a mother who was black – which happened to be a crime during South Africa’s apartheid.

And we had refreshments – fresh goods and coffee … This year we also had five librarians entered in the event,” she said. The afterschool program – Youth and Nature – sponsored by the Saugus Garden Club, created tissue paper flowers. There were plenty of flowers available for people to use if they didn’t have their own. Library employees and members of the New Friends of the Saugus Public Library made some floral arrangements. And, of course, there were plenty of flowers for children and other visitors to take home if they wanted. “We thank Trader Joe’s for their generous donations of flowers to add to the ambiance of this event,” Manoogian said.

Page 16 THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, April 12, 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. Saugus has 20 runners in Boston Marathon There are 20 reasons for Saugus sports fans -- particularly those who love running -- to get excited about Monday (April 15). Twenty Saugonians are registered to run in the 123nd Boston Marathon, which is set for Patriots Day. That’s more than twice last year’s contingent of eight runners from town who completed the race. Gina Spaziani, 52, recently became the 20th Saugus resident to show up on the entry list posted on the Boston Athletic Association website when we checked the list yesterday. She is listed to compete in the Second Corral of the Fourth Wave -- the highest grouping of any Saugus residents who will be running -- when the 26.2 mile race kicks off. Abbey Chesna, 40, topped all Saugus runners last year, with a time of 4:15:02. That placed her 18,459 overall, 7,626 among women running in the race. Matthew Imbergamo, 40, and Robert Favuzza, 54 finished behind Chesna with times of4:26:52 (20,099 overall, 11,527 among men) and 4:27:02, (20,121 overall, 11,537 among men) respectfully. Other Saugus men registered to run in the race include: Saugus Police Lt. Anthony LoPresti, 49; Glen Harrington, 37; Branden Harris, 35; Dean Skiffington, 57; Dj Webster, 25; and Dave Jefska, 62. The other women runners who are registered: Lauren Sanford, 25; Allyson Gagne, 33; Sheree Wheeler 44; Haley Erickson, 28; Brittany Sprague, 26; Brenda Iafrate, 54; Jessica Capozzi, 27; Annajean McMahon, 67; Regina Curran, 48; Maureen Johnson, 50. Hats off to these dedicated athletes -- eight men and 12 women -- who will do themselves and their town proud just by completing the race. And, many of them will be running to raise money for various charitable causes. One-delay for trash and recycling The Town of Saugus announces that trash and recycling collection will run on a one-day delay from Tuesday, April 16, through Saturday, April 20, due to the observance of Patriots’ Day.

THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, April 12, 2019 Page 17 Girls’ lacrosse: Saugus can’t overcome slow start By Greg Phipps MacEachern was solid on the defensive end. L ess than five minutes into Tuesday’s Northeastern Conference game in the rain at Bertram Field in Salem, the Saugus High School girls’ lacrosse team found itself trailing 5-0. From there, the Sachems were able to settle down and actually outscore Salem, 5-4, over the remainder of the contest. But it wasn’t enough to make up for the slow start, as Saugus fell to the Witches by a 9-5 count. Saugus had a busy week with subsequent road games at Gloucester on Wednesday and Winthrop on Thursday. Alivia Burke had a memorable outing for the Sachems on Tuesday, scoring three times while Jana Morgante and Carina Vaughan each tallied once. Goalie Kaylee Giuffrida had a strong game in net, making several key saves to keep it close. Offensively, Haley McLaughlin and Burke performed well while Cailey Saugus forward Carina Vaughan races a Salem player for the ball in Tuesday’s contest at Bertram Field in Salem. Sachem Boys’ LAX steamroll Lynn for first victory Coming off a season-opening one-goal loss at Stoneham last week, the Saugus High School boys’ lacrosse team responded by routing Lynn, 122, in a Northeastern Conference tilt at Stackpole Field on Tuesday afternoon. The Sachems got balanced scoring as eight players netted goals, including Mario Desimone with a hat trick.

Page 18 THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, April 12, 2019 ~ Letters to the Editor ~ Saugus custodians To The Editor: There is a lot of controversy over the privatization of Saugus Public Schools and I am writing as a concerned wife of one of the 21 hardworking custodians. My husband has worked as a Saugus custodian in some capacity, whether part-time or full-time, in one school or another, for the past 19 years. For the last 10 years he has been the lead custodian for one of the elementary schools. I would like to share a bit about my family so the Superintendent and the School Committee can read firsthand whose lives this move to privatize could impact. I met my husband while we both attended Saugus High School in the early 2000s. I went to college to get my degree in Elementary Education while my husband joined the workforce. After being married for quite some time, we welcomed our first son in 2016. When deciding where we wanted our family to plant their roots, there was absolutely no doubt in my husband’s mind that we would live in Saugus. He would say things like, “We grew up here, our families live here.” I was raised in Saugus since I was a baby, but my husband is a very proud, born and raised, fourth generation Saugonian and he was all the more excited for our children to become fifth generation Saugonians. So, even though I wanted to look in other towns, we happily bought our house in Saugus and are now expecting our second son in June – right before my husband’s contract is up. During a time when we should have been celebrating creating a beautiful little life, my husband was filled with dread and worry over how he was going to provide for his soon-to-be family of four. When my husband first got the news that he may lose his job he was absolutely devastated. I have never seen my husband look so uncertain in the 16 years we have been together. There were countless tears shed and even more sleepless nights. ~ OPEN HOUSE ~ Sunday, April 14 * 12:00 - 1:30 PM 63 HARVARD ST., CHELSEA PRATTVILLE NEW PRICE: $619,900. These custodians do so much more than we think they do. My husband does so much more than just “clean” his school. Every time we are out in public and kids see him, their faces light up and they call his name, most of them running up to say hi. He plays soccer and basketball with the kids at recess. He makes sure the building is safe for the staff and children. He goes in over the weekend to snow-blow and clear all of the exits so they are ready for the staff and students to enter the building on a Monday morning. He helps the PTO set up and break down special events thrown at the school. He knows every little personality that roams the hallways. When he goes into to work it’s not, “Hey pal” or “Hey buddy” as he walks by a sea of faces he doesn’t really know. It’s “Hey Adam, how’s your brother doing?” or “Hi Erica, how’s your dad’s new job?” My husband is an integral member of the school staff that the kids enjoy seeing just as much as seeing their principals, teachers, paraprofessionals, secretaries, and cafeteria workers. Between overtime, 2:00 a.m. alarm calls, weekend events, night events, these custodians do it all and it’s just not fair. If you privatize, you would be getting rid of 21 custodians who have been dedicated to their schools, their staff, and this town for a very long time. The average amount of years of service these custodians have under their belts speaks for itself. These custodians aren’t here for a few months or years and then leave – most have been here in the town for well over 10 years. This is just one story out of 21. The move to privatize will not only affect the 21 families of these custodians, it’s going to affect the administrators, teachers, students, and the whole community of the Saugus Public School system. Please think about the huge impact this is going to have on so many families. Signed, Michelle Swanson, a very worried wife of a Saugus custodian and mother of (almost) two boys “Privatization is a tool used by dictators ... to suppress democracy” Dear Editor: Let’s get this debate straight for the entire Community. I’ve supported my written findings by excerpts from the Harvard Business Review. Town Government is making an effort to gain more control of the community, its citizens by bullying and threatening taxpayers by using propaganda to state the cost is “30% to 50% more” to allocate funds which support Federal, City, Town employees.

I haven’t read a word or heard a “peep” regarding it from the “Fab Five” or our State Representative. Privatizing Custodians is just the beginning of losing any control the Townspeople of Saugus have remaining! Why would you vote someone to represent you who wants to take your job away? I cite from an article published in Harvard Business Review November - December 1991, “Does Privatization Serve the Public Interest?,” by John B. Goodman and Gary W. Loveman. “But most important, (former Reagan staffer Stuart) Butler contends, is that privatization can simply reduce the size of government. Fewer government workers and fewer people supporting a larger role for government means less of a drain on the nation’s budget and overall economic efficiency. Butler’s arguments for privatization find sympathetic ears at the California-based Reason Foundation, which has been advocating privatization of both public assets and public services since the late 1970s. Using language designed to push the hot button of the average taxpayer, the foundation claims: “If your city is not taking full advantage of privatization, your cost of local government may be 30% to 50%higher than it need be. The costs of state and federal government are also greater without privatization.” I am convinced that Privatization is and will continue to be a tool used by Dictators to gain control over a functioning entity in order to suppress Democracy. Fact. Respectfully Submitted, Michael A. Coller Former Candidate for State Representative and the Saugus Board of Selectmen

How incredibly sad what is being done to the school custodians! Where are the churches, teachers, parents, union, and the decent citizens left in this town? We elect people in SAUGUS to represent our wishes. There have to be citizens left in this town who understand the basic needs that are being pulled from these faithful employees and their families. Shame for sure on anyone who does not respond in some way to this sad situation.

INTEREST GROUPS RATE YOUR LEGISLATORS: This week, Beacon Hill Roll Call looks at the ratings senators and representatives received from three interest groups who measured legislators’ support or opposition to the group’s legislative agenda in the 2017 and/or 2018 session. This week’s report features the grades received from The Massachusetts Public Interest Group, the Planned Parenthood Advocacy Fund and Citizens for Limited Taxation. CITIZENS FOR LIMITED TAXATION (CLT) CLT, founded in 1974, describes itself as the group that “defended state taxpayers against a proposed state graduated income tax, which it defeated on the 1976 statewide ballot, and again in 1994. CLT also limited property and auto excise taxes with Proposition 2½ in 1980, repealed the surtax and created a state tax cap in 1986 and rolled back the “temporary” income tax hike on the 2000 ballot. For decades CLT has provided its annual ‘Rating of Legislators’ to provide taxpayers with easy access to the performance of their respective state representative and senator regarding tax policy.” “For 45 years CLT has been the bulwark for taxpayers against unlimited taxation in a state that has an insatiable spending problem,” said Chip Ford, executive director. “Since its founding, CLT has saved Massachusetts taxpayers billions of their hard-earned dollars.” Key to scorecard: CLT used ten House votes and five Senate votes when calculating the 2017 ratings of the state’s legislators. Issues include the legislative pay hike, reducing the sales tax and income tax to 5 percent, imposing a graduated income tax, increasing the senior property tax deduction to $2,000 and requiring a social security number in order to get public housing. More details on the scorecard at http://cltg.org/cltg/clt2018/2017_ Ratings.htm. Here is the percentage of time local representatives and senators voted with CLT: Rep. RoseLee Vincent 0 percent Rep. Donald Wong 100 percent Sen. Brendan Crighton Not yet elected MASSACHUSETTS PUBLIC INTEREST RESEARCH GROUP (MASSPIRG) MASSPIRG, founded in 1972, describes itself as a consumer group that “stands up to powerful interests whenever they threaten our health and safety, our financial security or our right to fully participate in our democratic society. Since 1972, we’ve stood up for consumers, countering the influence of big banks, insurers, chemical manufacturers and other powerful special interests.” “In our role as watchdog and advocate for the public interest, we monitor the voting records of Massachusetts’ state lawmakers each legislative session,” said Executive Director Janet Domenitz. “We appreciate the hard work of the entire Legislature, and particularly those that scored 100 perSOUNDS | from page 19 dents to develop storytelling skills, learn animation software and capture the action of movies.

Disappointingly, a number of popular bills were never brought up for a vote – despite being approved by a committee and being cosponsored by a significant number of lawmakers. We hope that the 2019-2020 session brings more transparency, and more wins, for the public interest,” she concluded. Key to rating: MASSPIRG’s scorecard graded state lawmakers on a variety of votes and cosponsorships of bills including ones that would protect consumers, improve voter access to the ballot, invest in public transportation, promote government transparency, increase renewable energy, protect bees and reduce solid waste Members of the Senate are scored out of twelve points (eleven votes and one bill co-sponsorship). Members of the House are scored out of nine points (seven votes and two bill co-sponsorships.) More details on the scorecard are at https://masspirg.org/sites/ pirg/files/reports/MAP%20Legislative%20Scorecard%20Final%20 2017-18%20session.pdf. Here is the percentage of time local representatives and senators voted with MASSPIRG: Rep. RoseLee Vincent 89 percent Rep. Donald Wong 56 percent Sen. Brendan Crighton 100 percent PLANNED PARENTHOOD ADVOCACY FUND The Planned Parenthood Advocacy Fund, founded in 1984, is the advocacy and political arm of Planned Parenthood League of Massachusetts which was founded in 1928. It describes itself as “advocates for state policies that dismantle barriers to sexual and reproductive health care, including safe, legal abortion, improve access to comprehensive sex education and protect reproductive rights of all people.” “As the leading advocate for reproductive rights in Massachusetts, the Planned Parenthood Advocacy Fund is working towards a state in which every person has the rights, freedoms, and opportunities to control their lives and determine the course of their own futures—no matter what,” said Tricia Wajda, Vice President of External Affairs for the Planned Parenthood Advocacy Fund. By championing bold policies that break down entrenched barriers to health care, improve access to sex education, and defend reproductive rights against political attacks, The Advocacy Fund is helping build healthier and more equitable communities.” Key to rating: The scorecard assigns each Massachusetts state representative and senator a rating of: “Champion,” “Ally,” “Mixed,” “Opponent” or “NEI” (not enough information) based on each legislator’s lifetime voting record, cosponsorship history, public statements and other factors. Here are the definitions: Champion: A legislator who has demonstrated leadership on the Advocacy Fund’s legislative agenda and works in partnership with the fund to advance its shared goal to improve access to sexual and reproductive health care and protect the health and rights of Massachusetts residents. Ally: A legislator who consistently supports the fund’s legislative and policy agenda including protecting access to safe, legal abortion. Mixed: A legislator who may oppose access to safe, legal abortion - but who supports preventive health measures – such as family planning and sex education – and is willing to work with the Advocacy Fund in support of these issues. In other instances, a “mixed” legislator may support abortion access, but has taken action against sexual and reproductive health care access either with a vote or public statement. Opponent: A legislator who vocally opposes access to safe, legal abortion and/or access to sexual and reproductive health care more broadly. A legislator who supports some health issues included in the Advocacy Agenda may still be considered an Advocacy Fund opponent. Not Enough Information (NEI): A legislator who has not participated in the Advocacy Fund’s endorsement process or has not taken a public stance on to celebrate trees -- story and craft -- ages 4 and up. Homework helpers at the library The Saugus Public Library is again offering tutoring and homework help twice a week to the town’s elementary school students.

The subjects students can get help with include: math, science, grammar, reading, social studies, geography and more. Hey parents, the fund’s priority issues. More details on the scorecard are at: https://www.plannedparenthoodaction.org/planned-parenthood-advocacy-fund-massachusetts-inc/elections/legislativescorecard. Here is how local representatives and senators were rated by the Planned Parenthood Advocacy Fund: Rep. RoseLee Vincent Ally Rep. Donald Wong Mixed Sen. Brendan Crighton Champion 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 important 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 April 1-5, the House and Senate each met for a total of one hour and 16 minutes while the Senate met for a total of one hour and 26 minutes. MON., APRIL 1 House 11:02 a.m. to 11:05 a.m. Senate 11:03 a.m. to 11:10 a.m. TUES. APRIL 2 No House session No Senate session WED. APRIL 3 No House session No Senate session THURS.

They were Brendan McCabe, Nick DiVola, Ryan Pugh, Richie Mauro and Mekhi Coburn. Goalie Derek Martineau was called upon to stop just four shots in the win. Saugus head coach Rob Scuzzarella told the press after the game that he likes the intensity from his team so far. “The effort has been great and that’s one of those things you can’t teach,” he said. “I have a lot of older guys that are spreading their work ethic around the field. We were ready to play.” That readiness showed as the Sachems stormed out to a 9-1 lead after one half. Cross scored the first two goals to help set the tone early. In last week’s 8-7 non-league loss at Stoneham, Desimone and Pugh both scored twice. Also aiding the Saugus cause were Andrew Cipriano and Cross with a goal each. Brendan McCabe assisted on three of the goals. The Sachems resumed play on Thursday when they hosted Malden. Saugus then remains home when it takes on conference foe Revere on Monday.
