She was one of several dozen people who turned out to protest a proposal for privatization of janitorial services under consideration by the School Committee. (Saugus Advocate Photo by Mark E. Vogler) Editor’s Note: For this week, we interviewed Jenny Martini after meeting her outside of Saugus Town Hall on Monday (May 6), where she held a sign in support of the 21 school custodians who face the loss of their jobs if the School Committee votes to privatize janitorial services. Martini, who has been working as a substitute cafeteria worker in Saugus Public Schools for 13 years, says she has seen firsthand “the dedicated work of our custodians.” A Beverly native, she moved to Saugus 22 years ago with her husband, and raised a family there. She said she became “a lunch lady” when her youngest child entered the first grade at Lynnhurst Elementary School. He graduated last year, but she continues to work at a job she loves despite the School Department’s decision to privatize cafeteria workers two years ago. Some highlights of the interview follow.

Vogler E ven before she addressed fellow Town Meeting members on a proposed “Plastic Bag Reduction Bylaw,” Ann Devlin of Precinct 1 knew she faced a difficult challenge. The Finance Committee had already recommended that Article 15 be postponed indefinitely – the type of review that could hinder its passage.

Page 2 THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, May 10, 2019 ASKS | from page 1 Q: Let me ask you, why did you decide to come here today for this demonstration, to be picketing outside of Town Hall? A: Because I’m a lunch lady, right now, at Saugus High, and they privatized us already, and I don’t feel they should privatize custodians. They’re more than custodians. I know what they do because I’ve seen what they do. I was never a union member because I am a substitute cafeteria worker. But I still support the union. Q: So, you are one of the lucky ones who kept your job after they brought in a company to replace the cafeteria workers. A: Yes. They kept a lot of us. But I enjoy my job, so I had to reapply for it. I no longer get paid by the Town of Saugus; I get paid by Whitsons, a private company. That could change in a couple of years, too. I’ve been through three food companies since I have been in the system. Q: Now, you have lived in town for a while? A: I have lived here 22 years. Q: And you have kids that have gone through the public school system here? A: Yes. Q: So, as a mother, you have gotten to know the custodians pretty well? A: Oh, sure. I know everybody by name. Everybody who has a child in the school knows the custodians by name, and they trust them; and as parents, they don’t want to see the custodians replaced. Q: What are some of the observations you have made over the years about what the custodians do? A: In the winter time – in the snow time – I have seen them all work hard. Rick [Nelson] opens the building at the high school. He snowblows. They keep that school running: When things break down, they fix them. They do a lot more than what people think. Q: You say the custodians do so much more than what the public realizes. Please share with me one of your favorite stories that you have observed over the years that illustrates how custodians “go the extra mile,” as they say A: When my son was at $3.39 $2.55 GALLON GALLON We accept: MasterCard * Visa * & Discover Price Subject to Change without notice 100 Gal. Min. 24 Hr. Service 781-286-2602 the Lynnhurst [Elementary School], he had a retainer. I told him that if he ever lost it, he would have to pay for it himself. Well, one day he lost it in the lunchroom and he was all upset, worried that he would never find it. It ended up in the dumpster. But the custodian went into the dumpster with my son and they opened up trash bags until they found the retainer. My son was nine at the time. But that’s something I’ll never forget. Q: What would be one of the first things you would notice if they privatized the school custodians? A: I can almost guarantee how filthy the kitchens will be – guarantee. Angela, who works at the high school, pulls up every mat that we have to stand on and sweeps them, mops every day. She is such an asset. We have two lunches. Filthy rotten tables and I mean filthy rotten – the way the kids treat them. The kids leave their rubbish. They don’t care, and Angela goes in and cleans up the table, clears the rubbish off the table for the next lunch; then she goes out and does it again, and we go out and wash the table. I can just imagine the rodent problem we will have if the privatization crew doesn’t do the sweeping and cleaning the way Angela does it. They might do it once a night, but Angela is in our kitchen, sweeping and cleaning and emptying the rubbish before it’s even full – every day. I can only imagine what it will be like. The brand-new school will stay clean-looking for a couple of years. You won’t notice it right away, but after a few years of not having these guys around, you’re going to see a big difference. Q: What do you hear from your friends, neighbors and people you run into out in the community, about this proposal to privatize the custodial staff? TOWN MEETING | from page 1 bag ban that would apply to all Massachusetts communities. But Devlin prevailed in making a compelling case for Saugus to adopt a bag ban of its own instead of waiting for state lawmakers to take action. “I really do respect their work, but I just don’t buy their argument,” Devlin said of the Finance Committee in an interview after members voted 2714 on Monday night for a new bylaw to eliminate single use plastic check-out bags that are distributed in town while promoting the use of reusable bags. “What Mike Serino said is so true – it takes cities and towns A: It’s not very popular. Everybody I know is against it and don’t think it should happen. Me, personally, the way I feel about this – the superintendent was hired to do this. The last job he had, he privatized it. They hired him to do the same thing here, and I hope it doesn’t happen. I hope they get so much objection from the public that it doesn’t happen. Q: So you think the superintendent is just following orders here? A: I do. Q: Who do you think is behind the privatization? A: The town manager, probably. I think it’s all about money. It’s not about community or safety. The custodians do a lot of work that people take for granted; they’ve walked drunks out of school; they’re our safety. I’ve been in shutdowns. I’ve been in lockdowns when they’ve gone around checking the doors. Who is going to be in charge of checking my safety after they privatize and get rid of the custodians? Not just mine – who’s going to be in charge of checking the children’s safety? Q: So, you mentioned about one custodian letting a drunk out of the building. A: Yes. Rick [Nelson] has done that before. They know when there is a stranger in the building. They ask, “What are you here for?” They are security and cleaners. They’re childcare. They go out of their way to get things started. We don’t know how long it will take for the state to do something. But we have an opportunity to shape how the state ban will look,” she said. Precinct 10 Town Meeting Member Michael J. Serino told his colleagues that “the state is not a leader in environmental initiatives.” “It’s always the cities and towns that take the lead in these issues,” he said. When enough cities and towns show some leadership, the state takes action, according to Serino. Article 15 drew the most discussion and debate during the opening night of this year’s Annual Town Meeting. Members will consider a similar measure (Article 16) – the “Polystyrene Food Container Reduction Bylaw” – when Town Meeting reconvenes on Monday, May 20. Devlin, who is president of Saugus Action Volunteers for the Environment (SAVE), which authored the two articles, said she is not worried about the state Attorney General’s Office finding problems with Article 15. “We have the same language in the article as severto help you and help the teachers. They are so much more than what people think of custodians; they do so much more, so much more that they are not even asked to do. I can’t imagine how much people take for granted now that they are going to miss when they privatize – to hire cheaper people. Who is going to shovel? Who is going to snowblow? Who is going to leaf blow? I’ve seen the custodians cutting grass. Who is going to do all that work when they’re gone? The town officials think they’re going to save money, but they’re really not going to. Oh, they think they’ll get rid of the pensions. Q: Anything else that you would like to share? A: Yes. These guys are great. About three weeks ago, the ovens weren’t working. Rick Nelson and Carlos Gonzalez come right in and they get everything working. If they privatize, we’re going to miss these guys. I have other concerns about hiring an outside company to have people come to work in the school with people we don’t know, replacing people we know and feel comfortable with. For me to go into the classroom and read a book, I have to be CORIed [criminal background check under the state’s Criminal Offender Record Information law]. But to hire a company to come in and clean, they say they won’t be CORIed. I find that hard to believe, but that’s what I hear. al other cities and towns that have adopted bylaws. So, that shouldn’t be a problem,” Devlin told The Saugus Advocate. “I’m very excited and very encouraged that we will make it 102 … the number of communities in Massachusetts that have signed on,” she said. An unfavorable recommendation by the Finance Committee can often hinder an article’s chances of passing. But the FinCom recommendation for the article to be postponed indefinitely failed, 13-28. A motion to return the article to its author also failed, 16-25. There was another suggestion that the article be referred to the next Special or Annual Town Meeting. Precinct 1 Town Meeting Member Ronald Witten said he supported the article “in theory,” but voted against the measure in all three votes because he didn’t think it was a proper matter for Town Meeting to be considering. “This should be put on a ballot. Let the citizens of Saugus decide,” Witten said. “If it’s going to affect every citizen of Saugus, they should have a vote,” he said. Precinct 10 Town Meeting

THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, May 10, 2019 Page 3 Special Town Meeting Eight articles passed include an updated Master Plan By Mark E. Vogler T here was very little disagreement at Monday night’s Special Town Meeting as members approved eight articles totaling several million dollars to replace outdated vehicles and equipment, upgrade street lighting, improve storm drains and continue setting aside money designed to bolster the town’s financial stability. Drawing considerable attention was the $150,000 appropriation from free cash to fund Article 5 for the upgrading and completion of a town-wide Master Plan – something that hasn’t been done in decades. “We need smart development that will keep the town viable,” Town Manager Scott C. Crabtree told Town Meeting members, who earlier this year voted for a moratorium on multifamily housing. “This will allow the town as a whole to have a conversation” about future development, keeping in mind its impact on future costs for police, fire, water and other municipal services, the town manager said. “The elements that may be included but not limited to are a statement of goals and policies, land use, housing, economic development, natural and cultural resources, open space and recreation, services and facilities, transportation and implementation,” according a synopsis of the article provided by Crabtree. The commitment to updating the town’s Master Plan was a significant development among the articles approved this week, according to town officials. Planning Board Chair Peter A. Rossetti, Jr., who is also a Town Meeting member in Precinct 2, hailed it as “a great step forward.” “It’s something we’ve needed for a long time,” Rossetti said. He added that the town’s zoning needs to be looked at in light of the tremendous development pressures during recent years. “I can assure you this one will not be put on a shelf … it will be implemented,” he said. Crabtree said the town will hire a technical consultant to work on the updated Master Plan Other articles approved MonTOWN MEETING | from page 2 Member Steven C. DiVirgilio told colleagues that he considers plastic bags to be “very convenient” and said he didn’t believe passage of the article would improve his quality of life. “I guarantee that you are going to go to the store one day and be upset that there are no plastic bags because you forgot to bring your own bag,” he said. “I don’t see a crisis with plastic bags in trees,” DiVirgilio said. Devlin said several people in the community approached her over the past year, expressing concerns about plastic bags “stuck in the trees.” “They end up in our streets, in our trees, in our parks and in our waterways,” Devlin said. She noted that residents of Massachusetts use more than two billion single use plastic bags per year. These are highlights of the article approved this week by the Annual Town Meeting and the proposal members will consider on May 20: Plastic Bag Reduction Bylaw Use Regulations: Thin-film single-use plastic bags shall not be distributed, used or sold for checkout or other purposes at any retail store or grocery store within the Town of Saugus. If a retail store provides or sells checkout bags to customers, the bags must be recyclable paper bags or reusable checkout bags. Thin-film plastic bags used to contain dry-cleaning, newspapers, produce, meat, bulk foods, wet items and other similar merchandise, typically without handles, are still permissible. Enforcement: The responsibility of the Board of Health, which shall determine the monitoring process, which may be limited to responding to citizen reports. Penalties: noncriminal disposition fines: first offense, warning; second offense, $50 per day; third and each subsequent offense, $100 per day. Effective Date: Six months after approval of the bylaw by the state Attorney General’s Office, or Jan. 1, 2020, whichever is later. The Board of Health could exempt a retail store from the requirements for a period of up to six months upon a finding of undue hardship or if a retail store needs additional time to draw down an inventory of checkout bags. Polystyrene Food Container Reduction Bylaw Use Regulations: Food establishments are prohibited from dispensing prepared food to customers in disposable food service containers. day include: Article 1. The transfer of $1.5 million from certified free cash to the Stabilization Fund. The current balance is $8.1 million. Article 2. The transfer of $150,000 from certified free cash to the Other Post-Employment Benefits (OPEB) Trust. The current balance is $720,000. Article 3. Borrowing $1 million for retrofitting street lighting to LED. Article 4. Borrowing $820,000 to buy four new police cruisers, several vehicles and pieces of equipment to replace equipment at the Department of Public Works that’s needed to be replaced for years. The Finance Committee cites this as the town’s commitment to capital improvement issues. Article 6. Using $90,000 unexpended from several completed projects to pay a portion of the costs of the drainage project at the Winter Street Cemetery. Article 7. The transfer of $10,000 from certified free cash to spend on promoting the growth and expansion of the Town of Saugus Tree Farm. Enforcement: The responsibility of the Board of Health, which shall determine the monitoring process, which may be limited to responding to citizen reports.

He finished his hockey career as a coach for 10 years. Red Kelly was born July 19, 1927, in Simcoe, Ontario, Canada, and died May 2, 2019, in Toronto. During his playing days for the Red Wings, the team won six Stanley Cups and eight regular season championships. The 19-year-old was not overly thought of by most scouts, but the Red Wings saw potential in the youngster. He attended Doan’s Hollow Public School in Port Dover, then attended St. Michael’s College School and played for the St. Michael’s Midgets in 1943–1944 then St. Michael’s Buzzers in 1944– 1945, a Big 10 Junior B league in Ontario. He was upgraded to the St. Michael’s College Majors in the Ontario Hockey Association for the 1945 and 1946 seasons. He was selected by Detroit in the 1947 draft and began a spectacular career as a defenseman in the league. He was a First Team All-Star from 1951–1955, then again in 1957. He was a Second Team All-Star in 1950 and 1956. His name is on the Stanley Cup for the seasons 1950, 1952, 1954 and 1955 with the Red Wings. In 1954 he was runner up for the Hart Memorial Trophy and won the James Norris Memorial Trophy as the top defenseman in the NHL. Four times he won the Lady Byng Trophy as the most gentlemanly player in the league. He broke his ankle late in the 1959 season but continued playing to the season’s end. Kelly was traded to the New York Rangers after the 1959 season, but Kelly announced he would retire rather than go to New York. The Rangers succumbed and traded him to Toronto, a team whose stadium he never liked, but near to home, so he decided to play. And play he did for eight seasons. He married Andra Carol McNaught in 1959. Kelly became a center for the Maple Leafs and was on the winning Stanley Cup squads from 1962–1964, then again in 1967. Red was installed in the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1969. In 1998 he was ranked number 22 on “The Hockey News” list of the 100 greatest NHL players. In 2001 he was selected as a Member of the Order of Canada, then inducted into the Ontario Sports Hall of Fame that same year. The Maple Leafs retired his number, 4, on October 15, 2016. During 2016 he published his autobiography, “The Red Kelly Story” by ECW Press with co-authors L. Waxy Gregoire and Davis M. Dupuis. In January of 2017, he was selected as one of the 100 Greatest Hockey Players of the NHL. The Red Wings retired his number 4 jersey on February 1, 2019. Not content with just being a hockey player, Kelly was elected Bill Stewart The Old Sachem as a Liberal Member of the Canadian Parliament of the York West section of Toronto, and served from 1962 to 1965 while still playing for Toronto. After playing the game since his young years, he became a coach with the expansion team, the Los Angeles Kings, from 1967–1969. In 1969 he was hired by Pittsburgh Penguins as their coach, and remained there until the 1972– 1973 season, then on to Toronto in 1974, finishing up behind the bench in 1977. His coaching record was 278 wins, 330 losses and 134 ties. He brought the Kings into the playoffs, losing in the first round in 68 and the second round in 69. In Pittsburgh he lost in the second round in 1970 and the first round in 72. He brought the Maple Leafs into the playoffs all four of his times behind the bench, losing in the first round in 1974 and in the second rounds in 1975–1977. In regular seasons Kelly played 1,316 games and had 281 goals, 542 assists, 823 points and 327 penalty minutes. He played in 164 playoff games, scored 33 goals, added 59 assists, for 92 points, and had only 51 penalty minutes. At OLD SACHEM | SEE PAGE 5

THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, May 10, 2019 Page 5 Request denied Town Meeting member not allowed to introduce nonbinding resolution supporting school custodians By Mark E. Vogler S chool Custodians and their supporters who picketed outside of Saugus Town Hall early Monday night looked forward to getting moral support from Town Meeting members. Some of the custodians planned on attending the opening night of the Annual Saugus Town Meeting, hoping to hear Town Meeting members advocate on their behalf. But shortly before the meeting began, custodians learned there would be no acknowledgement at Town Meeting about the 21 custodians facing the possible loss of their jobs if the School Committee votes to privatize janitorial services sometime this spring. “What we had hoped for didn’t happen,” said Rick Nelson, a longtime custodian of Saugus Public Schools and a member of the local union’s executive board. “And I don’t know why,” he said. When approached by The Saugus Advocate this week, Precinct 5 Town Meeting Member Ronald M. Wallace confirmed that he planned to introduce a nonbinding resolution to support the custodians – but he was denied that opportunity. “I wanted to read a nonbinding resolution and then take a roll call vote from members showing their support for the custodians,” said Wallace, who has been an electrician for 32 years and a member of Local 103 IBEW. “I do support the custodians and I do think that privatization is a bad thing. This was a nonbinding resolution. But I was just trying to send a message to the School Committee,” Wallace said. “It’s my right to get up there and speak. And it seems that I was being shut down. It’s not about me reading the letter. rant in order for them to be discussed, there have been a number of resolutions introduced in recent years from the floor of Town Hall. At the 2017 Annual Town Meeting, Precinct 4 Town Meeting member Albert J. DiNardo was allowed to discuss his nonbinding resolution for a study on health-care costs even though it wasn’t on the warrant. Once the motion to table discussion of the resolution died by a slim 17-19 vote, the article itself sailed by a wide margin: 36-1, with two abstentions. DiNardo argued that Town SILENCING THE MESSENGER: At Monday’s Annual Town Meeting, Saugus Town Meeting Member Ronald M. Wallace says, he wasn’t allowed to read his resolution supporting school custodians. (Courtesy Photo to The Saugus Advocate) It’s about me being silenced when others in the past have been allowed to speak on resolutions. It’s about fairness,” he said. Wallace said his request was denied by Town Moderator Stephen N. Doherty, “who I respect and like and consider a nice and fair guy.” The moderator appeared to have gone against past practice of allowing members to speak out on local issues, according to Wallace. “I’m a lifelong Saugus resident and have lived here for 50 years. And I have two kids in Saugus Public Schools,” he said. “I should be allowed to do it, seeing that others have been allowed to speak. Hopefully, I’ll be able to read it in two weeks,” he said. Doherty could not be reached for comment and did not return a call from The Saugus Advocate. Although many members would rather have resolutions listed on the town warOLD SACHEM | from page 4 his retirement in 1967 he was seventh in all-time career points, fifth in assists, thirteenth in goals and second to Gordie Howe in games played. But there was more to Kelly than just a professional hockey player. He was elected to the House of Commons of Canada in 1962 as part of the Federal elections. He defeated the Conservative party candidate, incumbent John Hamilton. Red was reelected the following year, defeating the Progressive Conservative candidate, Alan Eagleson, the future NHL player agent. During his time in the House of Commons he was in opposition to Conn Smyth, the owner of the Maple Leafs, over a flag debate in which the former Red Ensign flag was replaced by the Maple Leaf. The world not only lost a great hockey player, but a great gentleman. Meeting has a rich history of its resolutions and warned fellow members to “be careful in abdicating” that option, which has sometimes had an influence in changing views on a local issue. “It’s always been the practice here that resolutions can be offered at any time,” DiNardo said, noting that a resolution introduced several years ago may have helped keep the Saugus Public Library open.

Page 8 THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, May 10, 2019 Saugus High students show support for school custodians who could lose their jobs By Mark E. Vogler T hree Saugus High School seniors – one of them the daughter of a Saugus School Committee member – joined the crowd gathered in front of Saugus Town Hall early Monday evening showing support for the school custodians who could lose their jobs if the School Committee votes to privatize janitorial services. “We’re here because we appreciate the custodians and everything they do for the students,” said Jana Morgante, one of the co-captains of the Saugus High girls’ lacrosse team. “They’re always there for us. We figure we’d be there for them as well. They care about us. They care about all of the kids,” she said. Jana’s mother – Lisa Morgante – sits on the five-member School Committee and will be voting later this spring on whether to hire an outside company to replace the school district’s 21 custodians. Makenzie Lloyd, the other co-captain of the girls’ lacrosse Fully Licensed & Insured team, and teammate Cailey MacEachern also participated in the picketing outside of Town Hall as Saugus town officials and Town Meeting members arrived for Monday’s opening night of the Annual Town Meeting. “They’re very involved with our lives when they don’t have to be,” Cailey said. “A lot of people just don’t know how much they go out of their way to help the students. They’re taken for granted. So, I think it’s important to recognize how great they are as people,” she said. Makenzie echoed the sentiments of her teammates. “I’m thankful for the bonds they have created with the students at the High School and appreciate everything they do for us,” she said. Veteran High School Custodian Carlos Gonzalez, 56, said he hopes the members of the School Committee would talk with students and parents to find out the overall contributions that he and his colleagues make daily to SauEmergency Service Available 24/7 SPECIALIZING IN KITCHEN & BATHROOM REMODELING * Heating * Cooling * Electric * Tile All Estimates Done By Owner * Drain Cleaning 781-FIX-PIPE (349-7473) • crnplumbing@gmail.com gus Public Schools. “I hope the School Committee realizes this is our town and we are essential workers,” Gonzalez said. “Privatization is the wrong avenue. Going on the cheap is not the way for them to go, and there’s actually no savings in the long run. I put in 10 hours a day and get paid for eight. Everyone knows we all do – we all go the extra mile,” he said. “Kids know us by our names. The custodians do a lot more than clean the buildings. We’re part of the community and we’re part of the school. With the new High School that’s being built, it’s going to be even more difficult to maintain. Everybody knows us. If the School Committee votes to privatize, do they know who they’re going to have in the schools?” Gonzalez, a father of four children, from ages 12 to 26, said he and most of the custodians have vast institutional knowledge about the old buildings they work in. He has worked 21 as a custodian at Saugus Public Schools. “When I started, there was a big issue with air quality … I’m the one who is responsible for dealing with all of the filters and air conditioners and making sure they are working right … There’s a total of 22 air conditioners and almost every classroom has a filter,” he said. Members from unions representing various town employee groups were there on the lawn at Town Hall on Monday, waving signs at passing motorists – many who beeped their horns to show support for the school custodians. 505 Broadway Everett, MA 02149 Tel: 617-387-1120 www.gkdental.com • Family Dentistry • Crowns • Bridges • Veneers/Lumineers • Dental Implants • All on 4 Dental Implants • Emergency Dentist • Kid Friendly Dentist • Root Canals • Dentures • Invisalign Braces • Snap On Smile • Teeth Whitening We are the smile care experts for your entire family MAKING A STATEMENT: Saugus Public Schools custodians, supporters, students and various town union representatives picket outside Saugus Town Hall on Monday night, the opening night for this year’s annual Town Meeting.

THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, May 10, 2019 Page 9 State trooper says dead Saugus man’s license being used in “fraudulent” auto purchases and sales By Mark E. Vogler A Massachusetts State Trooper has called on the Board of Selectmen to revoke the Class II Auto Dealer’s License issued to a Saugus man who died a year ago. “I have been investigating fraudulent auto purchasing and sales from Route 1 Auto Sales, 961 Broadway,” State Trooper Robert A. Johnson of the State Police Motor Vehicle Regulatory Section wrote in a letter last month to selectmen. Ed Brown, the business’s owner, died last summer, according to Johnson, but Area agencies to offer five-week program for family and friends of people who “clutter” Lynn, Mass., May 2, 2019 – Greater Lynn Senior Services (GLSS) and North Shore Elder Services are jointly sponsoring a five-week program for “Family and Family of Clutterers.” The group meetings will begin on Tuesday, May 28, and will run for five consecutive Tuesday evenings from 7:00–8:30 p.m. Sessions will be held at Calvary Christian Church (47 Grove St., Lynnfield). “This program is for people who have family members or friends who find themselves with too many things and are having difficulty sorting through or getting rid of unneeded possessions,” said Michele Martindale, LICSW, somebody is still using his license illegally. “The building and the property are empty and the business is no longer in existence. I have seen titles and sales documents as recently as March 2019 indicating that Route 1 Auto Sales has purchased vehicles at auctions and from other dealers,” Johnson wrote. “The person or person that are purchasing and selling vehicles are using a stamp purporting to be the owner of Route 1 Auto Sales.” Johnson’s letter and request who oversees the Hoarding Outreach program at GLSS. “In many cases, the possessions affect their overall quality of life and well-being and have a negative impact on their ability to live safely or function in their home environment.” The program will help friends and family learn better ways of communicating and supporting their loved ones. There is no age or geographic restriction but space is limited and preregistration is required by contacting Martindale at 781-5868621 or Eileen Dacey, LCSW, at 978-624-2207.

Board of Selectmen Chair Debra Panetta told colleagues that the report should be referred to Saugus Police and there should be witnesses brought in to speak at any show cause hearing because of the serious ramifications. It would be important for the licensee to attend any show cause hearing, too, she added. “It’s pretty harsh,” Board of Selectmen Vice Chair Jeffrey Cicolini said of what the state trooper identified in the report. If selectmen revoke the license, Trooper Johnson requested that selectmen would contact him “to prevent any further fraud using Route 1 Auto Sales as a legitimate used car dealer.” S LANDSCAPE & MASONRY CO.

Page 10 THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, May 10, 2019 Sachems closing in on tourney berth By Greg Phipps D espite experiencing a bump in the road at Peabody last week, the Saugus High School baseball team appears well on its way to qualifying for a postseason spot and challenging for the Northeastern Conference crown. A 5-4 home win over Winthrop on Tuesday lifted the Sachems to 8-2 on the season with conference tilts against Gloucester and Danvers set for later this week. Pitcher Jason Casaletto hurled 6 2/3 innings to earn the win on Tuesday while Skylar Smith produced an impressive complete-game performance in Monday’s 9-2 road win over Lynn Classical. Ironically, the team’s only recent hiccup came with ace Todd Tringale on the mound last Wednesday, May 1, at Peabody. In that contest, the Sachems tallied twice early but couldn’t preserve the 2-0 lead in the end, eventually losing, 3-2, on a walk off hit. Peabody starter Derek DiLisi allowed just five hits, and the Sachems couldn’t do any damage off him after putting two early tallies on the board. At the same time, Tringale was his usual stingy self, allowing just one run through six innings and heading into the final frame with a 2-1 lead. He came within one out of claiming the vicSaugus first baseman CJ Graffeo reaches down in an attempt to pick off a Peabody baserunner in last Wednesday’s 3-2 loss at Bezemes Diamond in Peabody.

The Sachems responded well to the tough Peabody loss by erupting for nine runs in Monday’s win at Lynn Classical. Two hits and two RBI from Grant Rust and two hits and three RBI by Zack Falasca led the way. Smith helped himself by driving in two, and Anthony Cogliano and Ronnie Paolo each singled and drove in one. On the mound, Smith allowed just five hits. A six-run fourth inning proved to be the turning point for the Sachems. “That’s definitely the best [offensive] inning we’ve had all year. We’ve had a tough time finding and scoring runs but we strung together three or four hits,” head coach Joe Luis told the press after the game. In Tuesday’s win over Winthrop, the Sachems relinquished an early 3-0 lead and fell behind, 4-3, in the fourth. Paolo tied it with a sacrifice fly in the bottom of the fourth, and Cogliano gave Saugus the lead for good by stroking a run-scoring single in the sixth. Paolo had two RBI with two Zack Falasca shows the strain while legging out a double – one of his two hits in last week’s game at Peabody. hits, and Jack Devereaux and Rust each drove in runs. Casaletto had two hits to go with his pitching line of four runs allowed on four hits and six strikeouts. Tringale, who manned the catcher position, filling in for regular back stopper Jackson Stanton on Tuesday, relieved Casaletto to get the final out and preserve the win. Todd Tringale had another strong outing but ended up on the short end of the result in last week’s loss at Peabody.

THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, May 10, 2019 Page 11 Softball: Loss to Magicians snaps modest win streak By Greg Phipps H overing around the .500 mark for most of the first half of the season, the Saugus High School softball team was on a minor roll after winning two straight by a combined 15-5 margin. Back-to-back victories over Medford (6-3) last Friday and Lynn Classical (9-2) on Monday had the Sachems in a position to go three games over the even mark entering Tuesday’s Northeastern Conference home tilt against the Marblehead Magicians at Belmonte Middle School. But in a rain-shortened contest that was called after six innings, the Sachems managed just one run against Marblehead pitcher Lauren Donovan. Meanwhile, the Magicians struck for six runs off Saugus ace Caitlyn Wood in an eventual 6-1 triumph for the visitors. Ashley Shaw drove in the Saugus run with a base hit, and Alexa Ferraro socked two hits in the losing cause. The defeat dropped Saugus to 6-5 on the season with two more games on tap this week against Gloucester and Danvers. In Monday’s victory over Lynn Classical, Wood struck out seven batters and surrendered eight hits. She also helped her cause offensively with a tworun hit. Cat Schena brought in three runs by smacking two hits, and Ferraro produced a two-RBI hit. Nystasia Rowe had two hits and an RBI as well. Saugus head coach Steve Almquist noted to the press afterward that his squad seemed to be developing a stronger belief in itself coming off a second-straight win. “I’m extremely proud of the kids.

Page 12 THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, May 10, 2019 Lacrosse: Sachems romp over Lynn, lose to Malden By Greg Phipps I t was exactly what the doctor ordered after having gone 1-4 over its previous five games, as the Saugus boys’ lacrosse team tallied 13 times to earn a convincing win at Lynn last Thursday, May 2. All told, seven Saugus players made the scoring list. Forward Dom Paolo was the biggest producer offensively in the 13-5 victory. He netted six goals. Jake Morgante scored on two occasions while Mario Desimone, Ryan Pugh, Billy MacArthur, Manny AlvarezSegee and CJ Femino had single tallies. Leading 8-2 at halftime, Saugus scored early in the second frame to increase the advantage to seven and never looked back. Lynn did decrease the gap to five at one point, but it didn’t get closer than that. Saugus head coach Rob Scuzzarella told the press after the game that it was a big win at a time when the team really needed a lift. “We’re almost back on track. This is a big stretch for us,” he said. “We’ve had one win out of our last five games. It’s nice to get a win after a tough stretch.” The Sachems couldn’t keep the momentum going in Monday’s close 9-8 loss at Malden. That defeat left the Sachems at 4-6 overall as Saugus hosted Revere on Thursday (after press deadline) and takes on Salem on Monday. SOFTBALL | from page 11 more confidence,” he observed. The Sachems rose above the .500 plateau with their win over previously unbeaten Medford last Friday, May 3. Wood had a double-digit strikeout performance with 10, to go along with her two hits and four RBI with the bat. A perfect 4-for-4, two RBI offensive day from Emma Howard and two hits each from DJ Munafo and Ferraro led the attack. Contributing single hits were Kirby Dalton, Shaw, Leah Ventre and Sadie Dicenso. Almquist said beating Medford was “a big win” for the Saugus program. “Hopefully, this gives us a little momentum,” he said after the contest. Dom Paolo had a memorable game, scoring six times in Saugus’s win over Lynn last week.

THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, May 10, 2019 Page 13 Girls’ tennis eyeing another postseason berth By Greg Phipps H aving gone 5-4 over the first half of the 2019 season, the Saugus High School girls’ tennis team has its sights set on a second consecutive postseason appearance. Head coach Kristen Gerety said this week the team is looking to earn a higher seed and perhaps make some noise in the playoffs. “I expect we will make the state tournament [and] that the team will surpass last year’s performance,” she observed. “Last season, we were the number seven seed and did not advance past the first round [a 4-1 loss to Amesbury]. With the roster we carry this year, especially in our singles players, I expect not only to make the tournament but that we will have a higher ranking with more success.” Sophomore Lanna Queiroz, the Sachems’ No. 1 singles player, had yet to be beaten this year as of early this week, and freshman Cadence Callahan and senior captain Kelly Gray have performed well as the second- and third-seeded singles players. The doubles teams of junior Jillian Ricupero and senior Vi Pham, and senior Alana Aldred and sophomore Paige Prezioso have also been solid overall. Freshman Diane Jubeili and senior Collette Webster are both alternates on this year’s squad. The individual state tourney takes place this weekend and Gerety has high hopes for Queiroz. “Last year, Lanna was one of eight seeded players in Division 3 North. She wasn’t eliminated until the third round,” Gerety pointed out. “I expect she will be seedMembers of the 2019 Saugus High School girls’ tennis team are shown in the front row from left to right: Diane Jubeili, Lanna Queiroz, Paige Prezioso and Colette Webster.

Callahan and Gray were both edged in close, three-set singles battles, and the visitors emerged on top in the doubles contests. Senior captain Kelly Gray has held down the No. 3 singles spot this season. Junior Jillian Ricupero competes for the No. 1 doubles team. Sophomore Lanna Queiroz has thrived as the team’s top singles player. She was undefeated as of early this week. (Advocate Photos by Greg Phipps)

Page 14 THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, May 10, 2019 Citywide “stand downs” to honor construction worker lives lost to opioid crisis T BTEA ends Building Trades for Recovery Week with job site events in Seaport District & Charlestown The second stand down took he first-ever Building Trades for Recovery conference, which was organized by the Building Trades Employers’ Association (BTEA) came to a close this afternoon with two “stand downs” on two different construction sites. All work halted and hundreds of workers bowed their heads in silence for 150 seconds to honor the 150 construction workers lost per 100,000 to the opioid crisis. “If you’re out there struggling, please tell someone in your union – your employer, your coworker, your family. Please come forward. We’ll help you. We’ll get you in rehab and get you back to work as soon as possible,” BTEA Director of Labor Relations Tom Gunning Jr. said. “I hope next year when we’re standing here for Recovery Week, we can say we’ve made a difference and we’ve helped someone in the building trades make a new start.” The first stand down took place in the early morning on a John Moriarty & Associates site place at the Lee Kennedy Construction Co. Hood Plant Project in the early afternoon. President/CEO Lee Kennedy has taken a leadership role in the fight against the opioid crisis, by committing to carry Narcan on every job site. The company’s personnel attended trainings during the conference to ensure its safe use to save lives in the event of an overdose. Conference organizers announced an initiative this week to encourage every job site to carry Narcan. Boston Mayor Martin Walsh during the recent stand down in Boston’s Seaport District. Organized by the Building Trades Employers’ Association, the stand down was held to honor construction workers who have lost their lives to substance abuse. (Courtesy Photos) in the Seaport District. Boston Mayor Martin J. Walsh urged workers to be part of the solution. “Construction workers should be leading the way in fighting back on stigma – to let people know it’s okay to go Award-Winning Landscaping Servicing the North Shore for over 38 Years for treatment; it’s okay to let somebody know that there’s a disease out there; and it’s okay to admit that,” Walsh said. “It should start right here on this construction site and in the city of Boston, and we should lead the way for the rest of the country.” The impact of the stand down was felt immediately. Afterwards, a worker at the site came forward to say he was struggling with opioid use and needed help. That worker has been referred to treatment. “We’re trying to get awareness out there about a serious issue, a real crisis that is all across the country – particularly in Massachusetts. We’re two times the national rate as a state,” Kennedy said. “Five people die in Massachusetts every day from an opioid overdose – 2,000 annually – so the idea to put Narcan on the job sites is awesome, and I take great pride that the people on our team thought of it.” OPIOID CRISIS | SEE PAGE 17 NOW BOOKING NEW CUSTOMERS!

THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, May 10, 2019 Page 15 Chelsea Jewish Lifecare celebrates 100 years! C HELSEA– One hundred years ago, Lena Goldberg started Chelsea Jewish Nursing Home by turning a small multifamily building into a welcoming home for elders. Today that home has grown into Chelsea Jewish Lifecare, one of New England’s leading healthcare organizations. The nonprofit operates campuses in Chelsea, Peabody and Longmeadow, Mass., employing over 2,000 individuals and taking care of over 1,000 individuals every day. While there has been extensive growth and expansion throughout the years, one thing never changed: the organization’s unwavering commitment to provide high-quality, compassionate care in a “real” home setting. “From the very beginning, our goal was to provide the best possible care,” said Barry Berman, who has been CEO of Chelsea Jewish Lifecare for over 40 years. “We encourage our residents to make their own choices and live their own lives by creating a warm and welcoming atmosphere with a caring and compassionate staff.” He further explained, “Living in a residence that offers all the amenities of a real home greatly enhances the quality of life for elderly and disabled individuals.” Over the past 100 years, Chelsea Jewish Lifecare has achieved many significant milestones. The opening of the award-winning Leonard Florence Center for Living in 2010, the first urban Green House® skilled nursing facility in the country, is one example. This revolutionary nursing home in Chelsea includes 30 rooms devoted to individuals diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and multiple sclerosis (MS). Individuals are able to live as independently as possible through the cutting-edge Chelsea Jewish Nursing Home in 1919 reflect the organization’s mission: to be the most respected provider of service-enriched residential care and post-acute care for seniors and individuals living with debilitating neurological conditions.

Page 16 THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, May 10, 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. Census workers marching on I’m already getting bombarded with mail from the U.S. Census Bureau, reminding me that it’s required by federal law to fill out the survey the agency does every year. I can tell you from my experience 10 years ago that the people who work for the Census are relentless and will hound you until you fill out the forms they want. Ten years ago, this persistent woman made about six visits to my house, leaving notes in my mailbox or on the front door in an effort to get compliance. And, I eventually did. 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 on 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. CHaRM Recycling Drop-Off site open tomorrow The Town of Saugus announces that the community’s Center for Hard to Recycle Materials (CHaRM) is open to residents on Wednesdays and Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. The site is located behind the Department of Public Works at 515 Main St. There is no preregistration or fee required to enter the site; however, proof of residency is required. At the CHaRM center, the Town will accept the same recycling items that can be placed outside for curbside collection each week, such as paper, cardboard, bottles, cans and glass containers. Additional acceptable items include TVs and computers (up to three per year per address); bulky rigid plastic items, such as toys, laundry baskets, trash barrels, 5-gallon pails, etc.; car tires up to 22” (for a fee of $3); books; and textiles, such as clothing, bedding, pocketbooks, belts and shoes. Plastic bags are not permitted. Residents are kindly asked to empty recyclables out of any plastic bags, and remove the bags from the site. Residents may call Lorna Cerbone at the Solid Waste and Recycling Department at 781-231-4036 with questions or for more information. Town compost site open tomorrow The Town of Saugus announces that the community’s compost site will be open to residents on Wednesdays and Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. The site is located behind the Department of Public Works at 515 Main St. Stickers are required to gain seasonal access to the site. Stickers may be purchased for $25 at the Department of Public Works and the Inspectional Services Department located on the lower level of Town Hall (298 Central St.). Stickers may also be purchased at the compost site, by check only. Compost site stickers must be permanently placed on the lower left corner of residents’ automobile windshields. Vehicles registered out of state are not permitted. Yard waste must be disposed of in brown compost bags or open containers. The Town will accept grass clippings, leaves and brush.

If using barrels, they must be clearly marked with yard waste stickers. Stickers, which are free, may be obtained at Inspectional Services in the lower level of Town Hall at 298 Central St., Saugus. Barrel covers must remain removed so that the leaves are visible. Plastic bags, cardboard boxes, branches and brush will not be accepted. Please note that separate trucks collect the rubbish, recycling and leaves, so the leaves may be collected at a different time of day. “Missed pick-ups” will not be conducted. Please contact Lorna Cerbone at 781-231-4036 with any questions.

Page 18 THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, May 10, 2019 Beacon Hill Roll Call By Bob Katzen Special Report By Bob Katzen LEGISLATURE VOTES TO TAX MILLIONAIRES ANOTHER 4 PERCENT (H 86) The House and Senate held a constitutional convention and approved 156-37, (House approved 121-33, Senate approved 35-4), a proposed constitutional amendment that would allow a graduated income tax in Massachusetts and impose an additional 4 percent income tax, in addition to the current flat 5.1 percent one, on taxpayers’ earnings of more than $1 million. Language in the amendment requires that “subject to appropriation” the revenue will go to fund quality public education, affordable public colleges and universities, and for the repair and maintenance of roads, bridges and public transportation. The proposal is sponsored by Sen. Jason Lewis (D-Winchester) and Rep. James O’Day (D-West Boylston). In order to go on the ballot for voters to decide, it needs to twice have the votes of 101 of the 200 members of the House and Senate in the current 2019-2020 session and again in the 2021-2022 session. The earliest it could be on the ballot is in November 2022. A similar effort by a group called the “Raise Up Coalition” to get the question on the 2018 ballot was derailed when it was ruled unconstitutional by the Supreme Judicial Court which said the constitution prohibits placing more than one objec~ LEGAL NOTICE ~ COMMONWEALTH OF MASSACHUSETTS THE TRIAL COURT PROBATE AND FAMILY COURT Essex Probate and Family Court 36 Federal Street Salem, MA. 01970 Docket No. ES19P1005GD In the Interests of: Nathaniel Sanchez of Saugus, MA Minor NOTICE AND ORDER: Petition for Appointment of Guardian of a Minor NOTICE TO ALL INTERESTED PARTIES 1.

Date: April 26, 2019 Pamela Casey O’Brien REGISTER OF PROBATE May 10, 2019 tive in a single proposed constitutional amendment that is sought by a citizens’ group. The court’s decision noted that the proposal imposed the tax and then stipulates how the money could be spent. The current amendment is proposed by legislators rather than citizens and according to proponents, amendments proposed by legislators can have more than one objective and would not be ruled unconstitutional by the court. There was no debate on the proposal and no amendments were considered despite efforts by GOP Minority Leader Brad Jones (R-North Reading) to propose one. Jones said that Senate President Karen Spilka, who presided over the convention, was intent on gaveling through the proposal quickly and deflected his attempts to offer an amendment. Jones said his amendment would have required that revenue from the new tax be spent in addition to funds already directed toward education and transportation, and not simply replace those funds. Jones was clearly unhappy with the procedure. “You know what it is?” Jones told the State House News Service. “You can quote me. It’s bu**sh**. That’s what it is.” Senate President Karen Spilka said there will be debate and the opportunity to propose amendments when the proposal is debated again on June 12. Supporters say the amendment will affect only 20,000 extremely wealthy individuals and will generate up to $2 billion annually in additional tax revenue. They argue that using the funds for education and for the repair and maintenance of roads, bridges and public transportation will benefit millions of Bay State taxpayers. They note the hike would help lower income families which are now paying a higher share of their income in taxes. Opponents argue the new tax will result in the loss of 9,500 private sector jobs, $405 million annually in personal disposable income and some millionaires moving out of state. They say that the earmarking of the funds for specific projects is illegal and said all the funds will go into the General Fund and be up for grabs for anything. “The new revenue that would be raised by the Fair Share Amendment would go a long way in helping to fix crumbling roads and bridges, improving service on the MBTA and other public transportation, increasing funding for public schools, expanding access to quality early childhood education, and making higher education more affordable for students and families,” said Sen. Jason Lewis (D-Winchester), the Senate sponsor of the proposal. “It’s also the best way to raise revenue that would make our tax system fairer and more progressive, rather than increasing taxes on middle class families who cannot afford to pay more. I’m pleased that the Legislature’s action today moves the Fair Share Amendment one step closer to the ballot.” “The Massachusetts Fiscal Alliance (MFA) stands with the voters, who on five separate occasions voted against making Massachusetts a graduated income tax state, and with the state’s highest court which recently rejected a similar scheme as unconstitutional,” said Paul Craney, spokesman for the MFA. “Some lawmakers think history started in 2019, but this policy idea is the most rejected in the state’s history. The answer should always be ‘no,’ when considering removing our constitutionally protected guarantees of equal taxation.” “Community, faith, and labor groups all across Massachusetts strongly support the Fair Share Amendment because it’s the most fair, progressive and sustainable way to raise the major new revenue Massachusetts needs to invest in transportation and public education,” said Andrew Farnitano, the spokesman for Raise Up Massachusetts. “We thank the Legislature for moving the Fair Share Amendment forward today.” “If there was ever any doubt that the Legislature would expedite the scheme to tax more, today’s brief constitutional convention dispelled it,” said Chip BEACON | SEE PAGE 21 ~ LEGAL NOTICE ~ COMMONWEALTH OF MASSACHUSETTS THE TRIAL COURT PROBATE AND FAMILY COURT Essex Probate and Family Court 36 Federal Street Salem, MA 01970 (978) 744-1020 Docket No. ES19P1290EA Estate of: Fernande Jn Marie Date of Death: 09/03/2018 CITATION ON PETITION FOR FORMAL ADJUDICATION To all interested persons: A Petition for Formal Adjudication of Intestacy and Appointment of Personal Representative has been filed by: Charvellie Henry of Saugus, MA requesting that the Court enter a formal Decree and Order and for such other relief as requested in the Petition.

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 29-May 3, the House met for a total of one hour and 40 minutes while the Senate met for a total of one hour and 37 minutes. MON.

Page 20 THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, May 10, 2019 S by Jim Miller The Long-Term Care Benefit Many Veterans Are Missing Out On Dear Savvy Senior, I have heard that the VA has a benefit that can help veterans and spouses with long-term care costs. We recently had to move my 86-year-old father – who served in the army nearly 60 years ago – into an assisted living facility, and my mom isn’t far behind. Can the VA help? Seeking Aid Dear Seeking, The Veterans Administration does indeed have a littleknown, underutilized benefit that can help wartime veterans and their surviving spouses pay for a variety of longterm care costs. This benefit, called “Aid and Attendance,” is a special pension that’s paid in addition to a basic pension. It pays a maximum of $2,230 a month to married veterans; $1,881 a month to single veterans; or $1,209 a month to a surviving spouse. The money is tax free, and can be used to pay for in-home care, assisted living and nursing home care. Today, only around 230,000 veterans and survivors receiving Aid and Attendance, but millions more are eligible and either don’t know about it, or don’t think they can qualify for it. Eligibility Requirements To qualify, your dad must have served at least 90 days of active military service with at least one day of service during a period of war, and not have been discharged dishonorably. Single surviving spouses of wartime vets are eligible if their marriage ended due to death. In addition, your dad will also have to meet certain thresholds for medical and financial need to be eligible. To qualify medically he must be either disabled, or over the age of 65 and need help with basic everyday living tasks such as eating, dressing, bathing or going to the bathroom. Being blind or in a nursing home or assisted living facility due to mental disability also qualifies him. Single surviving spouses have no age restrictions, but they must require help with basic everyday living tasks to be eligible. To qualify financially, your parents must have limited assets, under $127,061, excluding their home, vehicle and personal belongings. And their annual income (minus medical and long-term care expenses) cannot exceed the Maximum Allowable Pension Rate (MAPR), which in 2019 is $26,766 for a veteran and their spouse; $22,577 for a single veteran; and $14,509 for a surviving spouse. To calculate your parent’s income qualifications, add up their income over the past year (including Social Security, pensions, interest income from investments, annuities, etc.), minus any out-of-pocket medical expenses, prescription drugs, insurance premiums and long-term care costs over that same period of time. If the final tally is under the MAPR, and he meets the other requirements, he should be eligible for aid. How to Apply To learn more, or to apply for Aid and Attendance, contact your regional VA benefit office (see Benefits.va.gov/benefits/offices.asp or call 800–827–1000) where you can apply in person. You can also apply by writing the Pension Management Center for your state (see Benefits.va.gov/pension/ resources-contact.asp). You’ll need to include evidence, like VA Form 21-2680 (VA.gov/vaforms) which your dad’s doctor can fill out that shows his need for Aid and Attendance. If you need some help, you can appoint a Veteran Service Officer (VSO), a VA-accredited attorney or claims agent to represent your dad. See www.ebenefits.va.gov/ebenefits/ vso-search to locate someone. If your dad is eligible, it will take between six and 12 months for his application to be processed, so be patient. You should also know that if your dad’s Aid and Attendance application is approved, the VA will send a lump sum retroactive payment covering the time from the day you filed the application until the day it was approved. Then your dad receives monthly payments going forward. Send your senior questions to: Savvy Senior, P.O. Box 5443, Norman, OK 73070, or visit SavvySenior.org.
