Crabtree wants the town to borrow $820,000 to buy four new police cruisers, four new trucks and vehicles for the Department of Public Works and several other pieces of equipment the town needs for safety’s sake. “We’re trying to replace equipment as part of the capital needs,” Crabtree told the Finance Committee at Wednesday night’s meeting as the panel’s members reviewed the last of eight articles on the warrant for Monday’s Special Town Meeting. 7:30 p.m. in the second floor auditorium at Saugus Town Hall.

Some of the vehicles that Crabtree seeks to replace are crucial, yet unsafe to work with – especially a 1998 Chevy 3500 bucket truck, according to DPW Director Brendan O’Regan. “To be 15 to 20 feet in the air with MEETING | SEE PAGE 7 Prices subject to change FLEET NOW OPEN!

Page 2 THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, May 3, 2019 Neighboring communities in court over pot shop Saugus challenges Lynn zoning decision to allow pot shop on town line By Mark E. Vogler T he Town of Saugus is suing the City of Lynn in Land Court in an effort to overturn the Lynn City Council’s decision to grant a special permit for a recreational pot store to operate in a building on the town line – and partially in Saugus. “Approximately 10 inches of the building, approximately one third of the deck, most of the parking spaces, and the existing dumpster at the Site are in Saugus,” Attorney Arthur P. Kreiger wrote this week in a five-page complaint on behalf of the town. The lawsuit argues that “The Saugus part of the Site is in an Industrial district under the Saugus Zoning Bylaw. Under Section 5.8 of the Bylaw, recreational cannabis establishments are explicitly prohibited in every zoning district.” Lynn city councillors on March 26 voted 9-0 to grant the special permit to MasASK | from page 1 sachusetts Green Retail, Inc. (MGR) so it could operate a retail business at 829A Boston St., the building that once housed O’Brien’s Pub. The lawsuit alleges that the pot shop “will generate substantial traffic congestion and safety hazards on Lincoln Streets and other streets in Saugus.” “Transportation of cannabis and cannabis products may include travel through Saugus between the Site of Interstate 93, and it will include travel in Saugus in the immediate vicinity of the Site. MGR’s failure to address transportation security poses a security risk in Saugus,” it continues. The complaint also notes that the application and zoning decision don’t limit the proposed use and parking to Lynn. “Delivery vehicles, as well as employs, customers and others entering the Site, will use Saugus property for access to the building and for maneuvering in the Site, in vithe environment continued to $3.39 $2.55 GALLON GALLON We accept: MasterCard * Visa * & Discover Price Subject to Change without notice 100 Gal.

After my time in Colorado, I decided to follow my horse dream and move to the Olympic training facility in Hamilton, Massachusetts. olation of the Saugus Zoning ByLaw,” the complaint says. But Sam Vitali, the Lynn lawyer who represents Massachusetts Green Retail, Inc., called the lawsuit “ridiculous” and “a feudal gesture because they can’t stop what’s going to happen.” “What is Saugus going to do? Build a Berlin wall? I don’t know if the citizens of Saugus are going to be happy having to waste taxpayers’ money on this lawsuit,” Vitali said. Vitali said Saugus basing its complaint on the fact that 10 inches of the building is in Saugus is a weak argument. His client could always cut that 10 inches off the building if that’s a major concern. “If that’s what you’re hanging your hat on, your hat is going to fall to the ground,” Vitali said. He questioned why it’s suddenly an issue when the building’s owners have never paid taxes to Saugus in the past, he said. “Suddenly, they’re I spent the next several years traveling and competing on the East Coast while deciding to obtain another degree in geology from Salem State.

A: Despite the weather and cold conditions we had a great turnout. Approximately 30 volunteers came by to lend a hand. Q: Briefly, what did you get accomplished and what was the total amount of rubbish and tree debris you removed? A: We were able to remove about 20 cubic yards of rubbish, debris and dumped materials. We pruned many of the plants and shrubs, replanted plants and flowers, placed mulch and removed a great deal of debris from the marsh area. Q: So, what’s the benefit here of doing annual cleanups of this park? A: This park is important to the watershed. It’s the gateway between Lynn and Saugus and the future abutters of the rail trail. And this park, the way the wind blows, collects a great deal of trash and debris. We want to catch it before it goes into the river. This is ASKS | SEE PAGE 10 [Saugus officials] concerned? Where were they the last 50 years? Tell the people in Saugus that Boston Street is a two-way street,” he said. Board of Selectmen Chair Debra Panetta said she intends to follow the wishes of Saugus residents. “In 2016, the majority of Saugus voters voiced their opposition to legalizing marijuana in Massachusetts by voting down Question 4 on the Presidential Election ballot,” Panetta said in a statement to The Saugus Advocate. “Last May, Town Meeting members in Saugus advanced the wishes of the Saugus voters by voting unanimously to ban recreational marijuana establishments from operating anywhere in the Town of Saugus. One of the responsibilities of an elected official is to carry out the wishes of constituents, protect the Town, and act in the best interests,” she said. “The proposed retail recreational marijuana facility that was recently approved has a portion of the building, one-third of the deck, most of the parking spaces, and the existing dumpster, geographically located in Saugus.” She noted that the Saugus portion of the site sits in an industrial district under the Saugus zoning bylaw, which also bans recreational cannabis establishments in every zoning district in Saugus. The proposed pot shop will generate substantial traffic congestion and safety hazards on Lincoln Avenue, Hamilton Street and other frequently traveled roadways in Saugus, according to Panetta. “It is important to note that the Board of Selectmen are the traffic commissioners in Saugus. The site contains inadequate parking and space to maneuver around the existing parking lot. There are no measures in place for limiting the proposed use and parking to Lynn and not in Saugus,” she said.

THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, May 3, 2019 Page 3 Earth Day Cleanup Residents of many communities cleaned up Saugus’s portion of the Northern Strand Community Trail how clean it is,” said Fish, who is president of the Hammersmith Homeowners Association, a group that represents 143 houses. “We didn’t find a lot of litter out there today. The biggest things were nips and broken glass from beer bottles,” he said. “A lot of people didn’t show today because of the weather. We had a young fellow from Saugus who is 17,” he said. THE GANG IS ALL HERE: A group of Bike to the Sea, Inc. members, most of them from six outof-town communities, were part of the Earth Day work crew that cleaned up the Saugus part of the rail trail last Saturday. By Mark E. Vogler T he two and a half mile stretch through Saugus is just a small part of the 10.5mile Northern Strand Community Trail that spans through five communities. But last Saturday, most of the 14 members of the group Bike to the Sea, Inc. came from outof-town to participate in an Earth Day cleanup of the trail along the Saugus River. They were residents of Everett, Malden, Melrose, Lynn, Somerville, Revere and Reading – all of them sharing a passion for bicycling and a commitment to move litter, rubbish and wood debris from the section of the rail trail behind the former O’Brien’s Pub to a resting spot they call the Jim Tozza Bench. “It’s much more than a Saugus thing,” Jay Cobau said of the group that assembled for the cleanup. Cobau, a Melrose resident who is Vice President of Bike to the Sea, Inc. said it didn’t matter that he and the other outof-towners were cleaning up the Saugus portion of the trail. “It’s a community thing. The entire bike path is a community resource … shared by people of several towns. And by being here, we’re making a statement to the public that this is a beautiful resource and we don’t want people throwing garbage “We have been with Adult Foster Care of the North Shore for over five years.

It was all overgrown. But we’ve cleared the brush so you can see it [the river] now,” he said. “During our first year, we CLEANUP | SEE PAGE 9 dine drink TRAIL ORIENTATION: The Bike to the Sea, Inc. kiosk that sets at the entrance of the rail trail in Saugus behind the former O’Brien’s Pub.

I’ve been at Bike to the Sea for 25 years.” Bike to the Sea President Janet Green, of Malden, said the turnout here was good considering the inclement weather the bicyclists confronted when they showed up to begin their work detail. “Fourteen people is pretty good even on a rainy, gray, cold and windy day,” Green said. “On a nice day, we would have gotten about 40 people out here – just like we did last year. But we still got a lot done anyway. We picked up eight big trash bags of debris and tons of brush,” she said. Gus Fish, one of four Saugus residents who took part in the Earth Day cleanup, said he has been a member of Bike to the Sea for 15 years. He’s seen firsthand what a difference the Earth Day work crews can have if they make their cleanups annually. “It shocked me gather enjoy THE NORTH SHORE'S HOTTEST NIGHTCLUB!

THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, May 3, 2019 ~ Letter to the Editor ~ Page 5 Thank you, Advocate, for giving a voice to the janitors To The Editor: I want to thank the Saugus Advocate newspaper so much for giving the Saugus School Janitorial staff a chance to let the citizens of this town understand the lives that are being jeopardized by the Superintendent of Schools and the School Committee in privatizing their jobs. St. Margaret Parish receives $1,000 donation from Wheelabrator This faithful group of Town employees was given a platform to show why they are being defended against the effort to privatize their jobs. The Advocate coverage gave a voice to these people who have made the Town of Saugus not only a place to work, but have attended schools themselves. Their connections extend to marrying and owning homes here. They have been true citizens of this town. Now those in power are choosing to bring in workers to perform their duties and responsibilities – workers who have no interest in our town other than driving in and driving out each night. I am not sure how this came to be an issue. These are good, faithful people who deserve better. Thank you so much again to the Advocate for giving a voice to this worthy group.

The following Saugus students MEETING | from page 1 a questionable hydraulic system is not the safest place to be,” O’Regan said. Finance Committee Chair Kenneth DePatto shared O’Regan’s concerns about the safety of the bucket truck, which would cost $125,000 to replace. “I’ve seen the bucket truck,” DePatto told O’Regan. “I’m not sure OSHA [the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration] would be happy with you,” he said. Part of the needs package that Crabtree advocated for includes $57,000 for a Fire Department system for recharging oxygen tanks. “There are new OSHA guidelines that all cities and towns are required to meet,” Crabtree wrote in a statement accompany his request. “The replacement of this system will enhance the safety of the Fire Department and adhere to OSHA guidelines. The current system is approximately 25 years old,” he said. Fire Chief Michael Newbury supported the town manager’s needs assessment. “I think it’s time to move forward and protect the firefighters,” Chief Newbury said. In addition to the bucket truck, Crabtree recommends that the town buy a new compressor truck, a payloader and pickup truck for the DPW and a building maintenance UTV 4 x 4 with a snow removal package. “Several of the vehicles to be replaced by those on this list are now substantially older,” Crabtree’s written statement noted. “They range from 15 to 25 years, no longer pass inspection and require continued maintenance. All of the vehicles are used on a daily basis with high demand and performance requiring that they be fully functional and safe,” he concluded. Crabtree told the Finance Committee that the DPW had to rent a bucket truck, the compressor truck and the payloader at different times because they are critical equipment. The Finance Committee voted overwhelmingly to recommend Article 4 for the Department Equipment. Only member Ronald “Rocky” Jepson expressed concerns. While saying he had “no reason to question the need,” Jepson said he didn’t like grouping the 11 pieces of equipment all in one article. “Each should be looked at individually,” he said. Jepson also wondered if the use of free cash for one-time expenditures were a better option than borrowing. Crabtree acknowledged that he could have prepared separate articles for each of the pieces of equipment, but suggested it would only complicate matters. Doing that might also place the value of one department over another. “I think this is a better way of looking at it without politics,” Crabtree said. The town manager said he thinks borrowing the money instead of using free cash is “a much preferred financial decision” which allows the town to continue building up OPEB (Other Post-Employment Benefits). Town Meeting Member Albert J. DiNardo of Precinct 4 lauded the town manager for his decision to spend money on capital needs – something that members have complained wasn’t being done in the past. “This sends a good statement to Town Meeting,” DiNardo said. Other articles on the warrant for Monday night’s Special Town Meeting include these: Article 1. To see if the Town will vote to transfer $1.5 million from certified free cash to the Stabilization Fund. The current balance is $8.1 million. Article 2.

Page 8 THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, May 3, 2019 For History’s Sake Upcoming program “Soldiers and Sailors: Civil War Monuments of New England,” Saugus included By Laura Eisener Saugus Historical Society A lmost every New England town has its soldiers and sailors’ monument, tributes to the sacrifices made by its townspeople in the war that killed more Americans than any other. Often the most conspicuous example of public art, many of these monuments occupy prominent locations while others are tucked away on less visible sites. Some towns have more than one – donated by different organizations or the result of changing tastes and interests which encouraged townspeople to build a new monument of a different style. There are even new Civil War monuments being built today, as well as many that have undergone restorations in the last few years. The statues are often the work of leading 19th early 20th - and -century sculptors. Favorite motifs include soldiers and sailors in realistically detailed Civil War uniforms; allegorical figures of classical women representing ‘America’ or ‘Victory’; columns, obelisks and artillery. While many monuments share similar motifs, some are very distinctive either because of design, location or history. How about the bronze soldier in New Hampshire which took a bullet hole in the shoulder? Have you seen the spectacular trumpeter on his lively horse galloping in Brookline? Or the infantryman in York, Maine, that so many people have thought was a Rebel soldier? What about the intricate white bronze monument in Portsmouth, N.H., with its architectural detail, reliefs of the ships Kearsarge and Alabama, and other figures, that originally stood about 40 feet tall? There is a golden lady and a granite soldier in a Malden cemetery, and members of all branches of the service in granite on Wakefield Common. National and local history combines with art when you look at the many styles of Civil War monuments seen throughout New England. Of course, we will take an especially good look at the Saugus Soldiers and Sailors Monument that stands in Saugus Center, and think back to how Saugus remembers her Civil War soldiers and sailors. The meeting will be Wednesday, May 8 at 7 p.m. at the Saugus Historical Society, 30 Main St. As usual it is open to the general public free of charge, and there will be light refreshments. A talk worth checking out tomorrow A special talk in the fabulous top floor meeting hall at one of the historic treasures of Lynn – The Grand Army of the Republic Hall and Museum – will be held from 2-4 p.m. on Saturday, May 4. The Grand Army Hall is at 58 Andrews St. in Lynn. The event is free and open to the public. Members of Lynn’s Civil War Round Table and Sons of Union Veterans will regale you with tales of the storied history of the Hall and some of its founding members. The Hall and Museum was part of the 2018 “10 Most Endangered Historical Resources” listed by Preservation Massachusetts.

First responders needed hydraulic tools to free the man from the wreckage of the pickup truck. An Armstrong Ambulance unit responded to the scene and rushed him to an area hospital, where he was later pronounced dead. Police identified the victim as Dana Campo, 47, of Tewksbury. Police said Campo apparently lost control of his pickup truck and struck a tree before crashing into the SUV. The crash remains under investigation by the Saugus Police Department with assistance from the Massachusetts State Police Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Section, according to a statement issued by Interim Saugus Police Chief Ronald Giorgetti. At about 11 a.m., members of the Saugus Police and Fire Departments responded to a report of a rollover crash on Main Street. Main Street was briefly closed following the crash, and the flow of traffic in the area remained limited on Tuesday afternoon, Chief Giorgetti said.

The trail, which has been spearheaded by Bike to the Sea, Inc. since 1993, is built in a continuous 7.5-mile stretch through Everett, Malden, Revere and Saugus to Lynn. Bike to the Sea was one of several groups teaming last Saturday for a cleanup along the Saugus River in the Lynn and Saugus area. The Saugus River Watershed Council, the Lynn Conservation Commission and the Massachusetts Department of Conservation & Recreation also worked together to clean up trash and debris in Marshview Park in Lynn near the Saugus town line, directly across the street from the former O’Brien’s Pub and across the river from the previous Spud’s restaurant.

Page 10 THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, May 3, 2019 ASK | from page 2 our 16th year helping to clean up the park. Q: Why are events like this important? A: It brings communities worldwide together to show awareness and appreciation of the earth. It is an opportunity that we have to express our love for the environment and show others how to protect it. Without the beginning of Earth Day in 1970, there is a good chance some of these accomplishments may have never happened: • The establishment of Environmental Protection Agency in 1970 • The Clean Air Act of 1970 • The Clean Water Act of 1972 • The Endangered Species Act of 1973 • The Resource Conservation and Recovery Act of 1976 • The Federal Occupational Health and Safety Act aimed at “in-plant pollution” Q: How did you get involved with the environment as an activist? A: I love this question. My father was in the National Park Service; he personified the core challenge facing our National Parks. He devoted his life to finding the delicate balance between recreation and preservation. I was fortunate to grow up in some of the most amazing places on earth; as a child I spent much of my time growing and planting native flora for re-vegetation programs and hiking the tallest peaks. My parents were incredible role models and in many ways pioneer environmentalists. I guess you can say it’s in the genes. Q: What are some of the groups you belong to and have worked with over the years? A: Student Conservation Association (SCA) – I spent a life-changing summer of my junior year in high school in Rocky Mountain National Park as part of SCA – Chair of the Lynn Conservation Commission. I’m a Certified Professional Geologist accredited with American Institute of Professional Geologists. I’m an active member of the Society of Exploration Geophysicists. Q: Let’s talk about your involvement with the Saugus River Watershed Council. How long have you been involved with that organization? How long as executive director? A: I have been on the board since 2012 and Executive Director for the past year. Q: Briefly, describe how the council has evolved over the years and some of the major projects it focuses on, its mission. A: The Saugus River Watershed Council [seeks] to protect and restore the natural resources of the Saugus River watershed. The watershed encompasses all of Saugus and portions of the following communities: Revere, Lynn, Wakefield, Lynnfield, Stoneham, A CALL FOR ACTION: “Make it every day,” State Rep. Donald Wong (R-Saugus), right, says of April 27’s annual Earth Day cleanup of Marshview Park in Lynn near the Saugus town line. Wong, who joined Mary Lester, left, the executive director of the Saugus River Watershed Council, said Earth Day shouldn’t just be a once-a-year affair. He said he’d like to see the School Department step up by offering to organize students on yearround “community service” projects at all state-run parks throughout the area. “Once you get the kids involved, they have respect in their adult life. They learn to respect the environment,” Wong said during an interview at Marshview Park. Melrose, Malden, Everett, Reading and Peabody. Most of the Council’s initial priorities and focus areas continue to be important today. One of our main goals is promoting environmental stewardship through education. Understanding and following environmental conditions in the watershed, coordinating volunteer cleanups, and commenting on proposed development to ensure protection of environmental resources have been consistent priorities since the Council was founded. More recently, we expanded our environmental protection efforts to encompass promoting watershed protection in a changing climate. Rising seas, coastal storm surge, increasing frequency and intensity of rainfall events, warmer temperatures and less predictable weather patterns all have an impact on watershed resources. Together with watershed communities, environmental agencies and other nonprofit organizations, we are working to develop climate adaptation and mitigation strategies to protect habitat, water quality and valuable coastal resources for the future. Q: What would you consider the five biggest accomplishments during the time you have been involved with Saugus River Watershed Council? A: 1) Education: During the past 18 years, the Saugus River Watershed Council has provided innovative watershed education programs to over 16,000 students from schools in our 11 watershed communities. Thanks to support from local businesses, individuals and foundations, students have explored the river and marshes while learning about their role in becoming environmental stewards for the future. 2) Illegal dumping and non-permitted sites: Over the past few years, I’ve had the opportunity to work with local, state and federal agencies to stop illegal dumping, disposing of contaminated materials and even the burying of hazardous waste on several sites along the Saugus River. Thanks to expanded local and state efforts to prevent illegal dumping and restore watershed natural areas, this problem is much less significant than in the past, a sign of increased appreciation for keeping the local environment clean. 3) Habitat restoration: Although my involvement with some of these projects is somewhat limited, the Council has played an important role in partnering with environmental consulting firms, environmental agencies, and communities to promote restoration of habitat throughout the watershed. Our best successes include partnering with the Division of Marine Fisheries to develop and install the first eel ramp of its kind to promote passage of American eels over a dam upstream in the river; working in partnership with the National Park Service to promote a turning basin project that balanced restoring a historic river landscape with protecting key fish spawning habitat and removing several acres of invasive wetland plants; and partnering with the Massachusetts Department of Conservation & Recreation to successfully advocate for removal of thousands of gallons of fuel oil from an underground storage site along the river that was then transformed into a passive park. 4) Protecting watershed resources in a changing climate: The Council has taken an early, proactive approach to working with our watershed communities to raise awareness and take action to mitigate and respond to the real challenges of protecting watershed resources in a changing climate. Whether working with the City of Lynn on the MVP process or to help develop a Waterfront Vulnerability and Resiliency Study, developing a climate change curriculum for local students, or partnering with the National Park Service to create a Climate Adaptation Plan for protecting waterfront resources, we anticipate that this aspect of our work will continue to increase in importance into the future. 5) Being present and a voice for the river: Our role as environmental advocates has been crucial to protecting natural resources and public health throughout the watershed. We take an active role in responding to proposed development projects and potential environmental threats. We are present and available in many situations; whether attending public hearings or submitting written comments through the environmental permitting process, we strive to balance environmental protection of valuable vegetated buffers, wetlands and natural areas with positive sustainable development in the watershed. Q: What one thing are you most proud of as you look back at the council’s work? A: For me, it is holding local corporations and businesses along the Saugus River and within the watershed accountable for their actions. We’ve had several situations where we’ve been able to stop major contamination for occurring due to noncompliant companies. This for me is incredibly important, not only for now but for the future of our children and watershed. Q: How old is the organization? A: SRWC was founded in 1991. Q: As we look upon Earth Day, what are the major challenges facing the Town of Saugus right now from an environmental perspective? A: In some ways, Saugus is at a crossroads. There is currently much interest in reinvigorating the waterfront with enhanced public access and amenities. At the same time, however, more work still needs to be done to continue improving water quality conditions in the river and ensure that waterfront economic and natural resources are protected from potentially damaging coastal storms and sea level rise in the future. Another ongoing challenge for Saugus is striking a balance between development pressures and the need to protect limited natural areas and ensure that there is sufficient capacity to handle wastewater from new housing and other development projects. Q: What about the DEP [Department of Environmental Protection]? How would you rate the job the agency is doing, as far as protecting the environment? How about other state and federal agencies? What kind of job are they doing? A: There are major challenges right now; the biggest for state agencies is lack of funding. Many of the Commonwealth’s environmental agencies, including DEP, have faced budget and staffing cuts leaving departments with inadequate resources to address environmental monitoring and enforcement activities. Q: How would you rate the state of the environment in Saugus right now? A: I feel there could be a lot more being done – at a crossroad, perhaps – there is both progress and ongoing environmental challenges throughout Saugus and the rest of the watershed. I do feel that there is success and progress moving forward, as well as opportunities to continue improving water quality, wildlife habitat, recycling efforts and open spaces Q: Has your grade for the environment gone up or down from when you first got involved with the Saugus River Watershed Council? A: Things in the watershed have definitely improved. The wildlife variety has vastly improved over the past few years; this is a great sign of population expansion. Q: Is this something that town government – the town boards – bear some responsibility with? A: Yes, local governments in Saugus and the other watershed communities are integral to protecting and restoring environmental resources in the watershed. Saugus officials have played an important and proactive role in pushing for sustainable development along the river and protecting the Rumney Marshes Area of Critical Environmental Concern by passing a series of bylaws to ensure environmentally sound management and siting of landfills in the town. Q: There have been some very aggressive boards in local government that have intervened in the past on the environment issues. So, are you happy with today’s town agencies and boards? A: We are always happy to work with local boards and agencies in all of our watershed communities. We don’t have to agree on everything to make significant progress toward protecting the environment over time. That said, Saugus has very proactive leadership and members on its volunteer boards and committees right now when it comes to protecting the environment. ASKS | SEE PAGE 20

THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, May 3, 2019 Page 15 World Series Park will host State Babe Ruth Tournament, sponsored by Wheelabrator (Editor’s Note: The following info is from a press release issued this week by World Series Park.) The Eastern Massachusetts State Babe Ruth 15-Year-Old Tournament will be held at World Series Park in Saugus from July 5 through July 10. This will be the third time World Series Park has hosted a state tournament. Winning teams from eastern Massachusetts district and sectional tournaments as well as the Saugus Babe Ruth 15-YearOld All-Star Team will be competing in this pool-play tournament. Wheelabrator Saugus offered to sponsor this tournament. The renewable energy company has been a longtime community partner, repeatedly stepping up to assist with many fundraising efforts in town, and it sponsored the previous State Tournaments at World Series Park. Wheelabrator has supported and donated to many causes in Saugus, including for a rescue boat for the Saugus Fire Department, as an annual presenting sponsor of the Agganis Special Olympics, as a major donor to the new softball field next to the Belmonte Middle School and as a sponsor of the Saugus Christmas Tree Lighting for several years. “We very much appreciate Wheelabrator Saugus’ offer to sponsor the Babe Ruth State Tournament,” World Series Park Superintendent Bob Davis said. “Their ongoing involvement in the Saugus community is very commendable and we feel fortunate to be a recipient of their generosity.” Foundation for the Saugus Public Library seeks new board members T he Foundation for the Saugus Public Library (SPL) is actively looking for people who have a love for the Saugus Public Library and would like to serve on the Foundation Board. The Foundation is open to anyone who can bring new ideas and energy to the group and help forward the future of the Saugus Library. The Foundation Board returns 100 percent of the profits of all fundraising efforts to the Saugus Library by supporting events and funding purchases that are not typically covered by the town’s library budget. For example, the committee is excited about the latest purchase, an electronic sign that will soon be up and running – programmed to display future events and information for the library. “In the past we have purchased the flat screen TV that READY FOR BASEBALL: Shown at World Series Park, left to right: Massachusetts Babe Ruth Commissioner Mark Matanes, World Series Park Superintendent Bob Davis, Saugus Babe Ruth President Matt Marcom and Bob Faia of Wheelabrator Saugus. (Photo by Ken Howse to The Saugus Advocate) is used by many civic groups for presentations in the Community Room. We have funded the purchase of over 25 new computers used in the library and purchased muchneeded new furniture for the children’s section of the building. The Foundation provided the funding for the new Library website and continues to fund the site and the genealogy research programs … used extensively by the patrons.

Page 16 THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, May 3, 2019 Balanced attack has Sachems off to strong start By Greg Phipps A n almost perfect balance of pitching, defense and timely offense are getting it done so far for the Saugus High School baseball team. Following Monday’s 5-1 road win at Swampscott, the Sachems improved to 6-1 on the season. Pitching has been Saugus’s biggest strength, with ace right-hander Todd Tringale leading the way. Tringale hurled another complete game last Wednesday, April 24, at Beverly, fanning nine and allowing one run on five hits. However, he was tested against the Panthers, who threatened to tie the game in the bottom of the fourth inning after the Sachems had pulled in front 3-1. But an excellent defensive play led to a Beverly baserunner being thrown out at the plate to end the frame. The lone damage off Tringale was a first-inning homer off the bat of Beverly’s Brayden Clark, who was also the opposing pitcher. Jack Devereaux had a big day for the Sachems, going 3-for-3, including a huge runSaugus catcher Jackson Stanton applies the tag in time to nail a Beverly baserunner at home plate in last week’s win over the Panthers. (Advocate Photos by Greg Phipps) scoring double in the fourth. Jackson Stanton and Zack Falasca also drove in runs with base hits. Head coach Joe Luis told the press afterward that the efforts of Tringale and Devereaux were the keys to the win. “It was a great pitching performance from Todd and a big day at the plate for Jack,” he pointed out. Saugus followed up the Beverly victory with a 3-1 home win over Marblehead last Friday. On Monday, the Sachems traveled to Swampscott, where Skyler Smith got the start and went four innings before turning it over to Tringale, who worked the final three innings. Smith earned the victory in his first start of the season. He gave up three hits and one unearned run, and walked four. Tringale then put forth three clean frames and struck out six hitters in the process. Luis was impressed with Smith’s season debut. “[He] Anthony Cogliano hustles down the line but is just beaten by the throw to first base last week at Beverly. pitched into the fifth inning his first time out and only let up one run that wasn’t even earned with a few fielding mistakes behind him,” Luis said. “[He] gave us the effort that we needed.” Stanton ended the day with three hits and two RBI, and Falasca and CJ Graffeo added a base hit and an RBI each. The contest was tied 1-1 until Saugus rallied for two in the top of the third and added two more in the sixth to put it in the books. When Smith walked a batter to open the bottom of the fifth, Luis decided to pull him and go with Tringale to close it out. The ace didn’t disappoint. “He showed control as he usually does,” Luis said of Tringale’s effort. “He gave us what we needed to shut them down.” This is a busy week for the Sachems, who had a game at Peabody on Wednesday (after press deadline) and have home games against Medford on Friday and Winthrop on Saturday. Softball: Sachems fall to 3-3 after loss to Big Blue By Greg Phipps R iding the momentum of a key Northeastern Conference (NEC) victory over Beverly last week, the Saugus High School softball team emerged on the short end of a 7-1 home loss to Swampscott on Monday afternoon. Saugus was never able to get much going offensively in Monday’s defeat, which left them at 3-3 on the season. Moving forward, the Sachems were hoping to play a make-up with Winthrop on Tuesday and hosted Peabody on Wednesday (after press deadline). They are scheduled to face Medford on Friday. On Monday, the visiting Big Blue, previously winless entering the contest, erupted for Alexa Ferraro is thrown out at second base in Monday’s home loss to Swampscott.

Saugus responded with its lone run in the bottom of the first when pitcher Caitlyn Wood aided her own cause by stroking an Ace Caitlyn Wood fanned 10 hitters in Monday’s loss. RBI single. Alexa Ferraro came across from third after reaching on a triple.

But it couldn’t take advantage and squandered the opportunity. Swampscott added to a 4-1 lead with three seventh-inning tallies to put the contest out of reach. Sachems head coach Steve Almquist said Swampscott is a better team than its 0-5 record indicated coming into Monday’s tilt. “We knew coming in that [they were] a good team and it was only a matter of time before they broke out, and when they did we just couldn’t match them with our offense,” he said. “We just couldn’t do anything when we had runners on base.” Two hits each from Wood and Ferraro and single knocks from DJ Munafo, Emma Howard and Nystasia Rowe accounted for the bulk of the Sachems’ offensive output. On the mound, Wood, in her seven innings of work, struck out 10 batters but was also touched up for 10 hits and the seven runs. In last week’s 8-6 victory over Beverly, Wood earned the victory by fanning eight and giving up five earned runs. Alessia Salzillo had two hits and drove in two runs, as did Ashley Shaw with her base hit. Also singling and driving in runs were Ferraro and Howard.

THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, May 3, 2019 Page 17 Lacrosse: Saugus girls keep battling despite struggles By Greg Phipps S ince an exciting 10-9 multiple-overtime win over Malden back on April 23, the Saugus girls’ lacrosse team had dropped four straight as of early this week. The last of those was a 13-2 home loss to Winthrop on Monday at Stackpole Field. The defeat left the Sachems at 2-7 on the year. During the four-game skid, Saugus had been outscored by a combined 62-16 margin. But the team continues to battle hard and compete. After a 19-3 defeat to Stoneham on April 24, Sachems assistant coach Melissa Toomey, who is filling in for head coach Kristina Crepeau this season (Crepeau is on maternity leave), told the press her team was weary after the marathon game the previous day. “We were tired but we did the best we could [against Stoneham]. It’s definitely good to see the effort. I’m proud of how [the team] played,” she said. “They didn’t give up and fense, facing a lot of pressure and managing to turn away 13 shots. Offensively, Alivia Burke tallied twice for the Sachems, who also got a goal from Haley McLaughlin. Carina Vaughan got into the act as well by assisting on two of the scores. The Sachems hoped to turn things around when they hosted Gloucester on Wednesday (after press deadline). The Fishermen were victorious when the two squads squared off earlier in the season. The Sachems then travel for a contest at Northeast Metro Tech on Saturday morning. Carina Vaughan has been one of the better offensive producers for the Saugus girls’ lacrosse team through the first half of the season. (Advocate Photo by Greg Phipps) played the whole game. They worked hard. Our girls played tough and they played strong all game.” Saugus goalie Kaylee Giuffrida had a standout game despite the wide final margin. She was the highlight on de

Page 18 THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, May 3, 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. “Support our custodians” Looks like the rank and file teachers of Saugus Public Schools got the backs of the custodians whose jobs are on the chopping block unless the School Committee backs off consideration of a school administration plan to privatize the janitorial services. “Please support our custodians on Monday night from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.,” the Saugus Education Association posted on its website this week. “They will be at Town Hall providing information to Town Meeting Members as to why privatization is a terrible idea for our schools,” the notice continues. This year’s Annual Town Meeting convenes at 7:30 p.m. on Monday. A Special Town Meeting will take up much of the first night’s business. It will be very interesting to see whether any of the cardcarrying union members will be issuing a resolution on the floor of Town Meeting to support the custodians. It will also be interesting to see how many of the local unions will have representatives out there supporting the custodians who are picketing outside of Town Hall. Stay tuned. Cheers to the man behind the food drive Here’s a shout-out to Dennis Gould, who has been busy this week getting the word out ~ OPEN HOUSE ~ Sunday, May 5 * 12:00 - 1:00 PM 63 HARVARD ST., CHELSEA PRATTVILLE SECTION NEW PRICE: $599,900. around town that the food drive that was postponed at Stop & Shop Saugus last month is back on – for tomorrow (Saturday, May 4) from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in Saugus Plaza at 164 Main St. Please see the related story in this week’s edition. Gould is the brains and organizer behind Healthy Students– Healthy Saugus, which is also known as HS2. The Saugus United Parish Food Pantry – together with the Saugus Faith Community, the Saugus School Superintendent and area businesses and organizations – has been collaborating on this special initiative, which focuses on Saugus students with food insecurity during weekends. Launched in October, HS2 currently serves 54 Saugus children with food bags each Friday. “Those of you volunteering at Stop & Shop this coming Saturday, we are requesting you to arrive there between 8:30 and 8:45,” Gould wrote in an email aimed at the volunteers. “If shoppers want to donate Money, checks should be made out to “Saugus Clergy” and “HS2” written on memo line. Cash is also accepted,” Gould said. Gathering food for the less fortunate students of Saugus is a very noble cause that unites Saugonians who care about their community. If you have time on your hand and you want to volunteer to help that cause, email Gould at jdgould1969@aol.com. The silence was deafening I’m not a big social media fan. I seldom go on it. But I heard from a number of avid followers of social media that the allegations of Selectman Mark Mitchell misappropriating more than a half million dollars from the Boston Center for Adult Education were getting a lot of chatter last week – right up to the Board of Selectmen’s meeting held on April 23. People I didn’t even know were emailing me to make sure that I attended that meeting because Mitchell was going to resign. And yes, there was supposed to be a large gathering of angry citizens clamoring for Mitchell to resign in case he didn’t tender his resignation. Well, so much for social media being more reliable than “the fake news” of traditional media. (Yeah, some public officials in town tell me I should get involved in social media if I want to know what’s going on. And some tell me they have more faith in social media than traditional media.) As things turned out, Selectman Mitchell showed up and gave no indication that he was considering resignation. And nobody from the angry citizen crowd showed up to express their dismay about the allegations. In fact, no town residents spoke out during the two public comment periods of the meeting. And none of the five Saugus selectmen – including Mitchell – made any kind of comment during the meeting about the misappropriation allegations. By now, each of the three newspapers that cover Saugus has run a story about the lawsuit filed by Mitchell’s former employer alleging that he had misappropriated at least $515,000 from the nonprofit organization’s bank account over a two-year period when he worked there as its controller. But I was the only reporter who was at the meeting last week. On the next day, I decided to send Mitchell and his four colleagues an email seeking comment on the situation. “There are a lot of comments on social media regarding the lawsuit and allegations against Selectman Mark Mitchell, a number of them calling for his resignation,” I wrote in the email. “Do you have any concerns or comments about Selectman Mitchell’s situation?” Obviously they don’t – at least none that they want to comA RARE GEM: Listed by Sandy.

The five selectmen were unanimous in their decision to ignore the email altogether. I expected to receive comments back saying it was an unfair question to be asking or that it was a question they didn’t feel comfortable in commenting on. But all five selectmen declined to answer my email, which is the first time this has happened during my three-plus years at The Saugus Advocate. I have no regrets for raising the question. Given the circumstance – alleged conduct that would be unbecoming for an elected official on any level of government – it’s a question that needs to be asked until the allegation are cleared. And if Selectman Mitchell decides to run for reelection, political challengers will most certainly raise similar questions about the allegations made by the Boston Center for Adult Education. And, of course, it’s a story that will continue to be covered by the local newspapers, as there are new developments.

THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, May 3, 2019 Page 19 SOUNDS | from page 18 town of Swansea, down in southeastern Massachusetts. I stopped by the cemetery to check out the flower the day after Easter. But all that was left were the stems that were chomped off by some hungry animal, probably a deer or several deer that had pranced through the cemetery. I didn’t feel that badly because several gorgeous yellow daffodils that I had planted at the family plot more than 20 years ago had bloomed nicely again. I also knew that deer and other wildlife that would attack tulips wouldn’t touch the daffodils. I learned that fact during my time as editor of the now-defunct Nantucket Beacon weekly newspaper. Back in 1974, ladies of the Nantucket Garden Club decided to plant the daffodils after getting fed up with deer devouring their tulips. So, for the last 45 years, the island has celebrated an annual Daffodil Festival that features daffodils which don’t get eaten by the deer. More than three million daffies come up every April. Islanders decorate their antique cars and floats with daffies for the annual Daffodil Festival Parade. I’ve told a few members of the Saugus Garden Club that they should try bombarding roadsides and parks in the Town of Saugus with daffodil bulbs some fall and have their own daffodil festival. Saugus Garden Club eyes big night As always, the Saugus Garden Club will have something special cooked up for its annual fundraiser set for Wednesday night, May 15, at Saugus Town Hall. The doors open at 6 p.m., with the program getting underway at 6:30 p.m. The headliner for this year’s event is Lou Greenstein, TV Chef, Author, Columnist, National Lecturer, Culinary Historian. People who come to the show can learn to design and create edible centerpieces. The evening will include an auction of floral centerpieces, raffle baskets, door prizes and refreshments. Tickets are $5. For details, please contact one of the co-presidents of the Saugus Garden Club: Lorraine DiMilla at 781.233.7541 or Donna Manoogian at 781.233.5640 or 617.240.9003. Memorial Day Parade Plans The Saugus Veterans Council is gearing up for the Memorial Day Parade, which is set for Saturday, May 25. The parade will form on Jackson Street at 9 a.m. and step off at 9:30 a.m. The parade route will be as follows: Jackson Street to Lincoln Avenue to Central Street to Winter Street to Riverside Cemetery and then to Saugus Town Hall for a ceremony. Prior to this event, the Annual Procopio Road Race will be held, with the start/finish and staging to be located in front of Town Hall.

Main attractions at the Saugus Public Library Saugus Public Library Director Alan Thibeault was really excited when he emailed me early this week. “It’s going to be an artsy weekend here with the reception on Saturday and a classical music concert featuring Gruppetto Trio on Sunday, May 5th at 2 p.m.,” Thibeault wrote. “But then again, this week IS ArtsWeek here in the Commonwealth,” he said. By the way, Thibeault wanted us to know that both events are free and open to the public. Tomorrow, there is an “Artist Meet & Greet” for Tamara Wolfson (see story and photos in this week’s paper), a Ukraine native who lives and works in Swampscott. Visitors will have a chance to talk to Wolfson about her art from 10 a.m. to noon. Then on Sunday (May 5), there’s the free Spring Classical Concert. Gruppetto Trio, an Honors Ensemble from the New England Conservatory of Music, performs from 2 to 3 p.m. in the Community Room.

Can you write a column to get the word out? Thanks for your help! Census Recruiter Dear Recruiter, I’m happy to oblige, and I agree. This once-a-decade job opportunity is a great fit for retirees that have some free time on their hands who wouldn’t mind earning some extra income while helping the community. Attention Retirees! The United States Census Bureau is currently in the process of recruiting over 500,000 temporary workers to help carry out the upcoming 2020 Census national head count of every person living in the U.S. The U.S Census helps determines each state’s representation in Congress, how funds are spent for schools, hospitals, roads, and provides information to guide many decisions made by government agencies, private businesses and institutions. Jobs within the census vary from working in the field canvassing, updating maps, doing follow up interviews with citizens in your community, or working in the office as a clerk doing administrative tasks or office operation supervisor, who oversees the field staff. Some jobs will begin this summer, but the majority of positions will begin in late April 2020 and last a month or two. These temporary part-time positions are located in every county throughout the United States and Puerto Rico. Some positions require evening and/or weekend shifts because you must be available to interview members of the public when they’re at home. And all positions require several days of online and classroom training. The pay ranges between $13.50 and $30 per hour depending on position and location. To find the pay rates in your area, see 2020census.gov/en/jobs/locations.html. Job Qualifications To be able to work for the 2020 census you must be: Be at least 18 years old. Have a valid Social Security number. Be a U.S. citizen. Have a valid email address. Complete an application and answer assessment questions. Be registered with the Selective Service System or have a qualifying exemption, if you are a male born after Dec. 31, 1959. Pass a Census-performed criminal background check and a review of criminal records, including fingerprinting. Commit to completing training. Be available to work flexible hours, which can include days, evenings, and/or weekends. In addition, most census jobs require employees to have access to a vehicle and a valid driver’s license, unless public transportation is readily available. And have access to a computer with internet and an email account to complete training. How to Apply The first step is to complete the online job application at 2020census.gov/en/jobs. The process takes about 30 minutes and will include some assessment questions about your education, work, and other experience. If you’re a veteran who would like to claim veterans’ preference, which provides preference over nonveteran applicants, you’ll need supporting documentation. For more information on the 2020 Census, or if you have questions or problems with the application process call 855562-2020. After you apply, an interviewer will reach out to potential hires to conduct a phone interview, but not all applicants will be interviewed. Job offers are made verbally, but candidates will also receive a letter by email. Send your senior questions to: Savvy Senior, P.O. Box 5443, Norman, OK 73070, or visit SavvySenior.org. Jim Miller is a contributor to the NBC Today show and author of “The Savvy Senior” book. ASKS | from page 10 PERFORMANCE | from page 6 Q: What is the council doing for Earth Day? A: Saugus River Watershed Council is partnering with Bike to the Sea and the Massachusetts Department of Conservation & Recreation in hosting a volunteer cleanup in Lynn and Saugus today [Saturday, April 27] from 9:00 a.m. to noon. Volunteers will meet at Marshview Park [located across the street from previously O’Brien’s and across the river from previously Spud’s]. Together we will clean up the park, remove debris from along the Saugus River section of the Northern Strand Trail and clean up the nearby riverbanks in Lynn and Saugus. All are welcome – no RSVP needed. Q: Who are your environmental heroes? A: #1 would by far be my father. “You see, you never know who’s watching and what sort of impact you will have on people” is what my dad would always try to explain to me. I understand it now more than ever. We need to be the change and, hopefully, we can show people how they can be the change. Liz Titus is a huge hero of mine. I’m incredibly fortunate to call her a friend as well as a hero. Liz established the Student Conservation Association, which has become the nation’s largest youth conservation leadership, with an annual participation of 4,000 students across the country, who give more than two million hours of voluntary conservation services. They engage in protection and restoration of the nation’s parks, forests, nature reserves and seashores. Q: What’s the best Earth Day project you have ever been involved with, in Saugus or outside of Saugus? A: One of my most memorable Earth Day cleanups/experiences took place in Seattle. It was organized by SCA. I think I was 17. I was asked to be a crew leader and I was honored. There were hundreds of people from all walks of life; it was just amazing to see so many people come together for one cause. We ended the day with an amazing potluck shared with incredible people. Q: Do you have a checklist of environmental projects that you would like to see get done? Name a few, please. A: I know this is in the works, but it is something I’ve been working on for years: expanded public access to the Saugus River, including riverfront walkways and more boater access.

ASKS | from page 20 adjacent to the Rumney Marshes Area of Critical Environmental Concern. It does not make any sense to expand this unlined landfill, which is already at risk for erosion from future sea level rise and increasing coastal surge. Q: Are you optimistic as you look ahead? A: Yes, we have to be! I’m definitely optimistic. We have work on improving the environment; the first step is to recognize the problem. In so many cases environmental problems are overlooked. We need more people to take a stand and see what needs to be fixed or improved. We must be optimistic and believe that the problems can be solved. That enthusiasm and commitment provide the foundation for partnering with as many people and organizations as possible to make a difference. Q: Anything else you want to share? Feel free to talk about some of the upcoming events that should be of interest to Saugus people. A: In honor of Earth Day, I would like to thank all of the individuals, businesses, public officials, and other nonprofit organizations working diligently to protect and restore local resources in the region. May in the Marsh: May 5th Marsh: May 11th , 9-11, 109 Ballard Street. Saugus River Appreciation Day: August 16th at 6:00 p.m. at Camp Nihan. We will have arts and crafts for the kids, guest speaker with a beaver walk, s’mores around the campfire and live music. We hope to get more of the community involved. An event like this brings kids and family together to learn more about the watershed.
