We asked them where they stand on whether to keep school custodians or to privatize. We also asked them about the biggest challenges they and their graduation classmates faced, their individual and class accomplishments, college plans and future career goals. Highlights of the recent interviews are below. Raisha Rahman scored a 4.82 cumulative grade point average to top this year’s graduating class of 160 students and earn the honor of Valedictorian.

Vogler) Workers vote to authorize strike at Saugus Care and Rehabilitation Center New ownership’s proposed wage cuts raise concerns N ursing home workers with 1199SEIU United Healthcare Workers East announced that they have voted to authorize a strike at Saugus Care and Rehabilitation Center. At issue is wage concerns and ownership policies and mismanagement, which are having a negative impact on residents and employees. Management cancelled the last bargaining session on May 21 and has been unresponsive to workers’ eff orts to reschedule that meeting and to schedule future sessions. “Our community deserves quality, aff ordable and reliable nursing home care, and I’m deeply troubled by the actions of Saugus Care and Rehabilitation Center’s ownership during these negotiations,” said State Senator Brendan Crighton. “The hardworking employees at this facility deserve wages that allow them to provide for their own families, and I urge ownership to rethink this disastrous proposal that would cut wages and jeopardize patient care.” Saugus Care and Rehabilitation Center is an 80-bed nursing home that employs about 70 1199SEIU workers; a large majority of them are of Haitian and African descent.

Page 2 THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, May 31, 2019 The Sounds of Saugus By Mark E. Vogler H ere are a few tidbits that you might want to know about this week in Saugus.

The weather was super. And some of the enthusiasm of young people was refreshing. Particularly, the members of “The Yes Club,” the student group at Belmonte Middle School known formally as “Youth Empowering Saugus.” It’s been several years since fl oats have been part of the Annual Memorial Day Parade. And “The Yes Club,” along with the Saugus Lions Club and the New Hope Assembly of God were the three fl oats in the parade. Precinct 6 Town Meeting Member Jeanie Bartolo asked me to put “an extra shoutout” to the kids from the Belmonte, along with their principal, Myra Monto. “I hope you got to see it up close. It was adorable!” Jeanie wrote me in an email this week. “Myra Monto, Belmonte School Principal, her husband and the students built and decorated the float to resemble a cozy front porch with rocking chairs and the children displayed the Memorial Day pictures they drew to honor our Veterans,” Jeanie continued. “It was well worth the hard work they put into building it.

Seeking “privatization” people At some point, soon, the School Committee is going to meet and vote on whether to keep the 21 custodians or eliminate their jobs by privatizing. If somebody has a beef and wants to opine about the virtues of getting minimum wage janitors from out of town to take care of the new school building that will be opening up next year, call me up and we’ll have coff ee for the next installment of “The Advocate Asks.” But so far, nobody is really going out publicly saying why dumping the janitors would benefi t Saugus Public Schools. This one is for seniors It’s that wonderful time of the year again – when the sounds of “Pomp and Circumstance” fill the air. Six o’clock tonight (Friday, May 31), Saugus High School seniors complete their four-year journey through high school. May all graduates savor this week. Enjoy your time with family and friends – many that you may not get to spend too much time with in future years. Best wishes to the graduating Sachems, whether they are heading off to college, preparing for a stint in the military service or embarking on a career. Speaking of seniors, there’s a great possibility that the Saugus High Class of 2019 could have a super Senior Citizen joining them tonight at Stackpole Field. Word has it that Peter Decareau, 95, a U.S. Navy veteran who served during World War II (See The Advocate Asks, “Saugonian Decareau gets honorary diploma 77 years after dropping out of SHS to join the Navy,” April 19, 2019) could join this year’s graduates. Decareau received the honorary degree from the School Committee earlier this year, but said at the time that he wanted to walk across the stage with this year’s graduating class. He is the older brother of former Town Meeting Member Eugene, who is a U.S. Army veteran who served in the Korean War. Word has it that Peter Decareau is determined to be there tonight – to walk across the stage. Let’s hope the weather is grand and the Class of 2019 can have another great memory for this weekend. Annual Town Meeting reconvenes on Monday The 50 members of the Annual Town Meeting plan to meet in their third session next Monday (June 3) at 7:30 p.m. in the second fl oor auditorium in Saugus Town Hall.

THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, May 31, 2019 Page 3 Meeting in the Rain Town offi cials visit auto repair business plagued by problems The main things that have Building Commissioner Fred Verone (left) looks at a property map as Saugus Auto Repair, Inc., business owner Zalam Daaboul looks on. He wants to buy the property he uses from the current owner. angered the neighbors are cars allegedly being sold illegally on the promises, increased traffi c and potential safety problems. But Zalam Daaboul said he hopes to change the attitude of town offi cials about his business. He’s seeking a Class II auto dealer’s license. He and his Everett attorney – Alfred Paul Farese, Jr. – are willing to make concessions and allow selectmen to set conditions so he can acquire the license. Daaboul says he’s willing to buy the property from 94 Hamilton St. LLC and Selliah Anapayan if his license is approved. “We’ll work with all the town officials and hope to come up with a plan to benefi t the neighbors and the town,” Farese said. Board of Selectmen Vice Chair Jeff rey Cicolini stressed to his colleagues and neighbors that a new owner would provide an opportunity for better conditions than if the property stayed in the current owner’s hands. Panetta said the board is set About two dozen people showed up for Tuesday’s site hearing at Saugus Auto Repair, Inc., which is located at 74 Hamilton St. By Mark E. Vogler f a lot of neighbors are unhappy about the way the auto repair business is being run at 74 Hamilton St., many of them probably stayed home on Tuesday during a site plan visit that was intended to give them a forum to talk to town offi cials and a potential new owner. Board of Selectmen Chair Debra Panetta said she thinks the pouring rain may have discouraged some people from showing up because they might have thought the visit had been cancelled on account of rain. With a backdrop of cold, raw I and wet weather, selectmen and other town offi cials conducted their site visit of an auto repair shop whose potential new owner could still be fi ghting an uphill battle after making eff orts to improve the appearance of the place. Building Commissioner Fred Verone, Fire Chief Mike Newbury and Interim Police Chief Ronald Giorgetti joined all fi ve selectmen, a few neighbors and some of the business’s supporters. “We've had a lot of issues here for years. A lot of police have been down here,” Verone told selectmen. to resume its public hearing on the request for an auto dealer’s license at its July 1 meeting. She has already complained about too many auto businesses already located on Hamilton Street. “My initial concerns with Saugus Auto Repair were the types of services they were providing and if they were exceeding the scope of auto repair. The board had received several past complaints and reports of Saugus Auto Repair potentially selling cars without a dealer’s license,” Selectman Jennifer D’Eon said. “There were other past complaints about cars without license plates possibly being used for salvage. After observing the plot plan, my concern with Saugus Auto Repair [is it] has excessive vehicles and may Cicolini and Morgante explain their positions on signing resolution petition By Mark E. Vogler B oard of Selectmen Vice Chair Jeff rey Cicolini said he recently signed a petition for a Special Town Meeting to consider a nonbinding resolution to support custodians. But that doesn’t mean he’s ready to support custodians over privatizing maintenance workers in the Saugus Public Schools, Cicolini said this week. “My signing of that petition – the one reason and the only reason is to make sure Ron Wallace’s voice is heard,” Cicolini said. “I want him [Wallace] to have his right to speak.” Cicolini added that he doesn’t know if it’s better for Saugus taxpayers to have a privatized janitorial force. “I don’t have a lot of details, and I’m not trying to overstep the authority of Town Meeting,” Cicolini said. “I don’t know all of the specifi cs. I need to see the details,” he said. Among the signatures gathered by volunteers are two School Committee members – Vice Chair Elizabeth Marchese and Lisa Morgante – and Cicolini. More than 200 people signed a petition last week calling for a Special Town Meeting to consider a nonbinding resolution supporting custodians after the precinct 5 Town Meeting member was not allowed to read his resolution. “For me, it’s a little bit of both,” Morgante said of her reason for signing the petition – supporting the custodians and giving Wallace a chance to be heard. 221 Newbury Street, Danvers For Tickets call (978) 774-7270 or www.breakawaydanvers.com be encroaching on Town property,” she said. “A business must operate within its confi nement.

She has played fi eld hockey all four years at SHS, is president of the Math Club and a member of the National Honor Society and the Malawi Club and she volunteers at the food pantries in Cliftondale and Malden. She is the daughter of Towfi qur and Rawshon Rahman. She has two younger brothers: Zayan, 4, and Safwan, 14. Rahman was born in Cambridge and lived in Bangladesh and Everett before moving to Saugus four years ago. Q: When you look back on the last four years, what do you consider the biggest accomplishment of this class? A: Overall, I think that this class … They had a lot of confl ict with each other. I think their biggest accomplishment was banding together for events like Prom and Color Day … being able to set aside their diff erences, because there was a lot of confl ict between groups in the school. Q: So, what was the problem? A: A lot of groups just didn’t get along. Our class is made up of very diff erent types of people, and not everyone always sees eye to eye, and that brings a lot of confl ict. You know how High School can be, like friend groups against friend groups. But everyone, when they had to, just came together. Q: What would you say to sum up the 2019 Saugus High School graduating class? What makes it special? A: This class is very passionate. People can get very angry, like, mad about things, and they can translate that into a lot of hard work and dedication. Q: What about your proudest individual accomplishment? A: I’d have to say it’s getting into Harvard, because I never thought I’d ever get in! Q: But what about being top dog in your class? The top student? Or maybe Harvard and that go hand in hand or Harvard is enough, I guess. You never thought about being the top student? A: I was always the top student, growing up, so it’s something I kind of expected of myself. It was never a concern. It wasn’t like I have to beat everyone else. It was more like I need to do my best. It just naturally happened that I ended up at the top, so that’s not why it’s not a big individual accomplishment for me [being top student in her class]. It wasn’t the turning point of my high school career. It was making myself better, so it was never a worry. Q: Lifetime achievement award, I guess, right? A: Yeah. Q: What are you going to do with yourself after Friday night [graduation night]? A: This is going to sound really boring. I’m just going to prepare going to college, and I’m also going to work. I work at Kohl’s here in Saugus, so I’m going to work through the summer; I’m just going to work. I’m going to try to enjoy my summer, but there will be a lot of preparing. Q: What are your career goals? A: I’m also not sure. I really want to go into the environmental fi eld. That’s why I kind of want to go into engineering – I want to fi gure out how to develop new technologies so we can live more sustainably. I also want to work with people more closely. I just don’t want to be in a workshop or a lab all day. I’m kind of exploring my options – but something defi nitely environmental. Q: How are you going to use what you got in four years here?

THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, May 31, 2019 Page 5 SHS | from page 4 ent types of people because I moved here in the eighth grade; I was completely new to here, having lived before in Everett. Saugus is completely diff erent, so I learned how to meet new people and how to deal with different people and how to present myself to everyone, so I’m defi nitely going to use that when I go on to Harvard. Q: What was the biggest challenge for you for the last four years? A: I think, again, it’s just trying to fi t in here because I’m not a very social or outgoing person. I’m just, like, fi guring out when I can speak up in class – when it was my time to shine – trying to fi gure out how I could be who I am and watch and see what happens. Q: Anything else you would like to share? A: Even though I never expected to move to Saugus – it was a very last-minute thing – but I’m really glad I did, because I met some really amazing people at Saugus High in the Class of 2019. So I’m extremely proud of all of us for getting through, and I’m really interested in seeing where we all go. Q: And your speech? A: My speech? It’s in the works. You’ll hear it on Friday. Q: So, it’s going to be low-key and nothing controversial? A: I think it’s better this way, for everyone here. I want it to be more congratulatory – you know – uplifting, so I think that’s better for all of us. Q: Anything else? Do you follow the local stuff in town? The local government? A: There’s some stuff to this town. It’s not exactly a haven, but it’s a pretty nice place to live. Q: So, do you have an opinion on the custodians? Whether Saugus Public Schools should keep them or privatize them? A: Ah, the custodians. I’m obviously biased because I’ve been around the custodians my entire four years and I’ve seen how hard they work. Obviously, I see their perspective and I think it’s unfair that they will be out of jobs. Q: So, you oppose the privatization. A: Yes, I do. Vi Pham has a 4.72 grade point average and won Salutatorian honors in this year’s Saugus High graduating class. She plans to attend University of Massachusetts-Amherst this fall. Vi, 18, grew up in Lynn and moved to Saugus when she was four or fi ve. Her brother Van Pham just fi nished his freshman year at the University of Massachusetts in Lowell. Vi is the daughter of Ho Phom and Thuy Vu. She played on the Saugus High tennis team four years, is co-president of the Malawi Club and a member of the National Honor Society and the Art Club. Q: When you look back on the last four years, what do you consider the biggest accomplishment of this class? A: I think overcoming our differences as individuals, so we can work as one class instead of separate groups; I think overcoming our differences is the biggest thing. Q: So, the class had been kind of fractured? A: Well, maybe kind of “clicky.” But I think we have overcome that. We’ve grown from that. Q: So, with the new school under construction and some of the distractions … did that kind of contribute to it? It can be distracting, I guess. A: Yeah. Q: What would you say to sum up the 2019 Saugus High School graduating class? What makes it special? A: I think a lot of members of the Class of 2019, they’re involved in a lot of activities at Saugus High. That’s one thing we take pride in. There’s some people who compete in multiple sports, and girls involved in drama club and chorus, so there are diff erent parts of the school they’re involved in – not just one section. Now, that’s a good part, getting involved with your school. Q: What about your proudest individual accomplishment? A: I’d say getting through senior year, especially with college applications, because that was a big stump that we’re not used to, especially with our freshman and sophomore and junior year. That was something new and very stressful, but it was something we could all relate to. Q: But, what about being near the top of your class scholastically? A: Oh yeah. We’re all very competitive people and we all work hard to get by today – I think planning [for college] on top of being Salutatorian. Q: What are you going to do with yourself after Friday night? A: I think I am going to fi nally relax and start worrying about college. Maybe I will give myself a few days’ break. Defi nitely, I need to sign up for orientation and fi gure out the residential life at UMass Amherst. Q: What are you going to major in? A: Microbiology. Q: What are your career goals? A: I intend to go on some internships in my college career. Hopefully, that will start giving me an idea what path I want to follow in science. I currently want to work in the laboratory research. Q: So, you want to get into research as opposed to medical? A: I’m not sure. Q: Now what are you going to do with yourself when you graduate from college? A: Hopefully, I will familiarize myself with faculty. UMass offers a lot of opportunities to travel abroad. I hope to use that experience to get to know what I want to do in my future. Q: Do you have anything in mind as far as an occupation? A: Medical laboratory scientist. Q: What do you consider the biggest thing you walk away from at Saugus High School, as a graduate? A: Saugus High School is a pretty worn-down high school: Sometimes you see leaky ceilings and sometimes the lights don’t work. Sometimes it kind of brings you down, but then you realize the people there – they’re more than just teachers and faculty. They’re mentors. For a lot of people in our class, that means a lot to them. I think teachers are a big part of Saugus High School. Q: What was the biggest challenge for you for the last four years? A: I’ll give you a generic – just keeping up with my grades. I just fi nd that I value that the most in my high school career. Specifi - cally for senior year, alongside of college applications, I took up a job in September in addition to my job at Market Basket, as an assistant manager. I started working for the Lynnhurst Elementary School After School Program, called “Kids come fi rst.” So, I helped kids after school with their homework. So, I was working every single day, from Monday to Friday, so I have to juggle my time every single day. That was a big challenge because I wanted to – my brother is in college and my parents are struggling to pay the tuition, so I wanted to help them – to relieve that fi nancial tension.

Vogler S augus native Don J. MacLeod said he moved away from town about 15 years ago, but the 86-year-old Korean War veteran said he keeps coming back on Memorial Day weekend to make sure his late relatives who served in the military are taken care of properly. “I have seven graves I plant,” MacLeod said last Saturday as he left Riverside Cemetery and walked into the parking lot across Winter Street from the entrance. There, he said, he planned to watch the town’s Annual Memorial Day Parade while sitting in his car. MacLeod, who has lived in Lynnfi eld for many years, said he should have been a 1950 Saugus High School graduate, but he quit to become a U.S. Marine. One of the family members who is buried in Riverside Cemetery is his late brother William Neil MacLeod, a U.S. Navy man who died in World War II while on board a ship. He put a red geranium on his grave last Saturday. “He was 23 years old when he died in 1945,” he said. Don J. MacLeod “I’m the last of the nine kids. They’re all gone and I’m the only one left,” he said.

We hope that ownership will come to the table and address the challenges that are negatively impacting residents and workers.” The previous contract with 1199SEIU members and SauTHE WAY IT IS: Members of Lynn English High School Marine Corps JROTC perform drills in front of Saugus Town Hall last Saturday during a ceremony that followed the Annual Memorial Day Parade.

A strike could take place as early as mid-June. “The caregivers at Saugus are dedicated to providing the very best care to residents and their families, and it’s very concerning that management is trying to turn these crucial positions into minimum wage jobs,” said Saugus Care and Rehabilitation Center Certified Nurse Assistant Eddy Pierre. “We love our work, and although we do not want to strike, a wage cut is unacceptable. We will continue to stand together to fi ght for a strong voice on the job and a fair contract.” Saugus Care and Rehabilitation Center was purchased from Genesis in March 2018 by Eli Mirlis, who is the CEO of RegalCare Management Group, which is headquartered in Waterbury, Conn. Mirlis owns two other nursing homes in Massachusetts: in Amesbury and Danvers. Nursing home workers at the Blue Hills Health and Rehabilitation Center in Stoughton have also voted to authorize a strike if necessary. “Unfortunately, we have experienced a rash of recent nursing home closures, placing a major burden on local families, employees and communities,” said Foley. “The healthcare workers of 1199SEIU are committed to continuing our work to support all nursing home workers by fi ghting for quality jobs and nursing home care and to work with state leaders to create the additional oversight and funding needed to ensure quality and reliable care.”

THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, May 31, 2019 Page 7 SHS | from page 5 people you can talk to. Students respect them. They’re more than what they were hired for. But I don’t think they mean a lot for our school offi cials. Q: So, what about the privatization thing. A: I personally don’t agree with it because of what I just said. I think custodians are more than that. Seven Greer has been a student president of his class at Saugus High School for three years. Seven, 18, plans to attend the University of Massachusetts in Lowell in the fall. He is a Saugus native and the son of Matt and Wendy Greer. Seven’s sister Nova is a freshman at Saugus High. His brother Anoki is a sixth grader at the Belmonte Middle School. His sister Taylor Perry is a 2012 graduate of the University of Vermont. Seven has been a member of the Drama Club for three years, the Debating Club and the Improv Troupe. Q: When you look back on the last four years, what do you consider the biggest accomplishment of this class? A: I think our fl exibility in everything that’s been changing over our 12 years here. It’s been a huge period of change for Saugus. We dealt with construction backup at Belmonte [Middle School], and our classrooms were switched around – now the construction up at Saugus High School. We’ve kind of just rolled with the punches and succeeded, nonetheless, so I think that’s our biggest accomplishment – going with the fl ow, in essence. Q: What would you say to sum up the 2019 Saugus High School graduating class? What makes it special? A: Our passion; everything we do, we put 110 percent into it, whether it’s athletics or the arts, theatre, our academics. Whether we are good at it or not, we put 110 percent. There’s a lot of passion in everything we do; there’s a lot of drive to succeed for sure. Q: What about your proudest individual accomplishment? A: Probably pulling off this week – Senior Week – being president for the past three years. That leads up to this, the culmination of all of the work. It’s hardly an individual accomplishment because I’ve had so much help along the way. Q: So, you’ve been president for three years. What about as a freshman? A: Freshman year, I wasn’t involved at all. I was kind of like “Screw that,” you know. I decided I would make the most of my time here and then decided to run at the end of that year, and it’s been a lot of fun. Q: What are you going to do with yourself after Friday night? A: I’m going to take some wellneeded relaxation time. I feel like I have worked pretty hard this year. I know I’m going to work 10 times harder next year, so I’m going to kick it. Q: Do you have any specifi c career goals? A: I’m leaving my options open. There’s a lot I can do in the environmental science fi eld. I might go into fi eld research: being out in the fi eld as an environmental scientist Q: Now what are you going to do with yourself when you www.reverealuminumwindow.com Friday, May 31 at 7:30 PM Singing all the Hits...

How are you going to use what you got in four years here? What do you consider the biggest thing you walk away from at Saugus High School, as a graduate? A: I think I’ve learned a lot about making the most of a situation. I think I’ve done a really good job, making the most of what I’ve got, and I think that will be super valuable for the rest of my life. Q: What was the biggest challenge for you for the last four years? A: Probably choosing a college. It’s super hard – just making that decision, even when it’s narrowed down to just two schools. There are so many things you have to take into consideration, and it can get pretty discouraging at times – the whole search. Q: Anything else you would like to share? A: Just that I’m wicked proud of everyone in this class. We’ve accomplished a lot, even in the face of adversity. I’m very proud. Q: So, what kind of message are you going to stress in your speech? A: I want to focus on the bright future of this class. Q: Anything that you want to mention or talk about? A: I think that about covers that. Q: Are you getting involved in the local government? Is that something you would get involved in? A: I would, yeah. Q: Town Meeting and selectmen? A: Sure. I think the town is headed in a good direction, and, for college, I’ll still be local. Q: Any views on the custodians? A: All I’m going to say: I love our custodians. I think they are great. I’m friends with a few of them. They’re great people. Whatever happens, I hope they end up in good places, because they are good people; they’re good people. Q: So, you are neutral on the question on whether to privatize or not? A: I’ll stay neutral.

THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, May 31, 2019 Page 9 One of the greatest By Th e Old Sachem, Bill Stewart ohn Havlicek was known for “He stole the ball” about his famous steal in the closing seconds of the Eastern Conference championship in 1965. John was better known as “Hondo,” his nickname, during his tenure with the Boston Celtics. Havlicek was born on April 8, 1940, in Martins Ferry, Ohio, and died on April 25, 2019, in Jupiter, Florida. Hondo went to high school in Bridgeport, Ohio, where he was a three-sport starter, then went on to college at Ohio State from 1959 to 1962. John was a roommate of Jerry Lucas, a future firstround choice, as was John. His 1960 Ohio State team won the NCAA Championship, and that same year he was an alternate member of the United States national team that competed in the 1960 Olympics. John was also a Consensus Second Team AllAmerican in 1962 after being named Third Team All-American in 1961. He was a first-round pick of the Boston Celtics as the seventh overall. He was 6 feet, 5 inches tall and weighed in at 203 pounds. He was listed by the Celtics as a small forward and a shooting guard. Hondo was the first player to be known as the “sixth man” because he rarely started, but J was a dominant force in each game. He played for the Celtics from 1962 until 1978, when he decided to hang it up. He is one of four players in the National Basketball League to have won eight championships, along with Bill Russell who has won 11 and Sam Jones, 10. He is also one of only three who have played on teams with an eight and zero record in NBA Finals games. He was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in 1984. With five seconds left in the deciding game and the Celtics leading by a point over Philadelphia, the 76s had a throw in under the Celtics basket. Havlicek was guarding Chet Walker with his back to the ball being tossed in by the great Hal Greer. As the throw came in, he pivoted and tipped the ball to Sam Jones and the Boston win was saved. The Boston Celtics won the 1974 NBA championship and Havlicek was named the MVP. He is the Celtics alltime leader in points scored, 26,395, and had 20.8. average points per game over his 16-year career. In addition to his NBA championships and MVP, and his Celtics leading scoring, John was an NBA AllStar 13 times, first team four times and second team seven times. He was selected to the NBA All-Defensive team eight times and was NBA All-Rookie First Team in 1963. The Bridgeport Ohio gymnasium where he stood out named the gym after him as the John J. Havlicek Gymnasium in 2007. He was outstanding with his hard-earned money acquired over his career and invested heavily in Wendy’s fast food chain during their early years. He had no desire to coach and instead became a featured speaker about his career in basketball. During his career he played in 1,270 season games, averaged 20.8 points per game and had a .439 field goal percentage and a .815 percentage for free throws. During his All-Star career he played in 13 games and had a .481 field goal percentage and a .756 free throw percentage. His playoff career includes 172 games played, averaging 22.0 points per game, a field goal percentage of .436 and a free throw percentage of .836. In 1997 he was selected as one of the 50 Greatest Players in NBA History by a panel of journalists, players, coaches, executives and general managers. John was also named as the fourteenth best player of all time in a book by Bill Simmons. He was one of the greatest Celts along with Bill Russell, Robert Parish and Larry Bird. ~ Letter-to-the-Editor ~ It’s a Democracy; Let Us Speak W hat do you do when you have tried all forms of government? When you have done everything possible but no one will give you that voice. When you have been turned down by School Committee Board of Selectmen and Town Meeting. No one wants to take responsibility ask the school committee its not their call, super nope, town meeting we can’t touch it, selectman we will listen but mabee when it’s to late. Mr. Town Manager when will you hear us? When it’s too late? When the decision has already been made? Behind all the shenanigans “please pay no attention to the man behind the curtain” he is just getting rid of everything you have worked for, everything all the other town employees receive but for some reason the 21 will not. Union busting at its best. Why do we have a school committee if they do not want to make a decision that will affect all the schools. What are they there for? Why do they not want to hear what the parents, teachers, and employees have to say? Is it because they do not want to hear the truth of what these employees really do? It involves so much more than just “pushing a broom” I have been a custodian for over 20 years and I wish I could go to work everyday and just “push a broom” over my time as a custodian I have encountered a lot, aside from the normal stuff that I do daily, the stuff to disgusting to mention here, on any day I could be considered one of the following electrician, plumber, carpenter, painter, landscaper, hall monitor, heat specialist, lock smith, mechanic, snow remover, security guard and much more, you Sweet & Juicy fi nd me a company that will do all that and not charge extra for it and I will tip my cap to you. Does the TM, Super or SC really think the schools will be a safer place with a private for-profi t company in the school. I think not. I ask the SC to put an end to this smoke and mirrors put the decision on the agenda for the next SC meeting and vote this decision in public for all to see, take responsibility for the decision I know me for one will respect you all a lot more if that is how it goes down. Crunch the numbers and put a price on the safety of the students and faculty and see what you come up with. #ItsaDemocracy#letUsSpeak Michael Mabee 75 Dudley ST Saugus MA 01906 Life-long Saugus resident, Custodian, Coach and Parent BLUEBERRIES 2/$ PINT 5 McKinnon’s Own HONEY ROASTED TURKEY BREAST Save $1 lb.

A drawing of an Eagle in fl ight with an American fl ag on a pole clutched in its beak, passing over a fi eld of poppies – the creation of Tayler DiPesa’s fi fth grade class at Oaklandvale Elementary School – was judged the best in this year’s Memorial Day art contest. That was the recent decision of visitors who turned up at Cpl. Scott J Procopio Saugus American Legion Post 210 for breakfast over the last two Fridays before Memorial Day to review the artwork submitted by fi fth grade classes from the town’s four elementary schools. A poster titled “Proud To Be An American … USA,” which was decorated with various patriotic symbols framed by a red, white and blue striped border – drawn by the students of Donna Reppucci’s fi fth grade class at the Waybright Elementary School – received Honorable Mention. This was the third annual contest involving students from each of the fifth grades in Saugus Public Schools.

Page 14 THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, May 31, 2019 Baseball: Sachems close with 14 wins, await playoffs By Greg Phipps H aving already achieved one of their best seasons in recent memory, the Saugus Sachems entered this week waiting to find out where they will land in the Div. 3 North baseball tournament. Saugus closed out its season on Monday at home by beating Medford, 4-1, behind a typically strong pitching eff ort from senior ace Todd Tringale. Having compiled 107 strikeouts, a 6-1 record, and four saves on the season thus far, Tringale, who is slated to compete for the University of Massachusetts next year, fanned his 100th batter against Medford. He punched out 14 hitters in all on Monday and gave up only two hits. The Sachems have been on the top end of numerous low-scoring games. Tringale and the rest of the Saugus pitching staff are a big reason for that. “It’s a great accomplishment. Todd has worked hard”" head coach Joe Luis told the Saugus ace Todd Tringale fi nished the regular season with 107 strikeouts and a 6-1 record to help the Sachems to a 14-6 fi nish. press after Monday’s game. “It’s great to coach a player like him and to have him on our team. We’re looking forward to his next start. We’re not done yet and he knows we’re not done yet.” Award-Winning Landscaping Servicing the North Shore for over 38 Years Catcher Jackson Stanton is batting well over .300 and has been an indispensable battery mate for the Saugus pitching staff this season. Over their fi nal four regularseason games, the Sachems went 2-2, losing to Peabody, 5-1, and Stoneham, 2-1. They beat Triton, 3-1, last Thursday. The Sachems fi nished 146, and Luis has said he’s hoping for a fi rst-round game at home. Saugus was seeded 15th in last year’s tourney but nearly upset second-seeded Lynnfi eld in the opening round. They were three outs away from pulling off the stunner before losing, 3-2. With Tringale and other starters Jason Casaletto and Skyler Smith leading the way on the mound and the team’s penchant for timely offense, the Sachems appear to be a genuine threat in Div. 3 this spring. Catcher Jackson Stanton has been a key fi gure behind the plate, helping to keep the entire pitching staff operating at a top level. Meanwhile his offense hasn’t been bad either, as he is hitting over .300 for the season. Jack Devereaux is also hitting well over .300, as is C.J. Graffeo, who has also been strong defensively at fi rst base. Shortstop Ronnie Paolo has also been eff ective in the leadoff spot with an on-base percentage of well over .400. In the win over Triton, Tringale fanned 11 and was reached for four hits. Stanton singled twice and drove in a run, and Devereaux drove in two with a three-for-three effort.

THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, May 31, 2019 Page 15 Sachem boys’ LAX close out season with win The victory concluded a season-ending stretch of fi ve games in which the Sachems went 3-2. Against Northeast, Brendan McCabe (two goals), Jake Morgante (goal and assist) and Chris Benoit (single tally) accounted for the rest of the scoring. Derek Martineau stopped nine shots to earn the win in goal. Making the playoff s was still a possibility when the Sachems faced Medford at Stackpole Field last Thursday. Despite an excellent eff ort by goalie Martineau (16 saves) and the home crowd behind them, the Sachems came away with their ninth loss – a 12-4 setback that knocked them out of playoff contention. Desimone scored twice to lead the Saugus offense. He was aided by Ryan Pugh’s single tally and a goal by Paolo. Joe Cross assisted on two of the goals. The team’s last three victories included wins over Salem (13-7) and Everett (6-1). Saugus outscored the opposition, 3413, in its fi nal three wins. Home loans, designed with you in mind.

Page 18 THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, May 31, 2019 Beacon Hill Roll Call By Bob Katzen THE HOUSE AND SENATE. Beacon Hill Roll Call records local senators’ votes on roll calls from the week of May 20-24. There were no roll calls in the House last week. All Senate roll calls are on the Senate debate of the $42.8 billion fiscal 2020 state budget. Many of the 1,142 amendments filed by senators never came to a roll call vote and were simply approved or rejected one at a time on voice votes without debate. To move things along even faster, the Senate also did its usual “bundling” of many amendments. Instead of acting on the amendments one at a time, hundreds of the proposed amendments are bundled and put into two piles— one pile that will be approved and the other that will be rejected with a single vote on each pile. Senate President Karen Spilka, or the senator who is fi lling in for her at the podium, orchestrates the approval and rejection of the bundled amendments with a simple: “All those in favor say ‘aye,’ those opposed say ‘no.’ The ayes have it and the amendments are approved.” Or, “All those in favor say ‘aye,’ those opposed say ‘no.’ The no’s have it and the amendments are rejected.” Senators don’t actually vote yes or no and, in fact, they don’t say a word. The outcome was determined earlier behind closed doors. $42.8 BILLION FISCAL 2019 BUDGET (S 3) Senate 40-0, approved an estimated $42.8 billion fi scal 2020 budget for the fi scal year beginning July 1. Over a threeday period, the Senate added an estimated $74 million to the original version of the budget and considered and voted on more than 1,100 proposed amendments. Supporters said the budget is a fi scally responsible and balanced one that makes vital investments in the state while continuing fi scal responsibility. “We can be really proud of the work we have accomplished,” said Senate President Karen Spilka (D-Ashland). “We expressed our best hopes for the future of our commonwealth and together we made the hard decisions to produce a fi scally responsible budget that truly refl ects our Senate values.” The House has approved a different version of the budget. A House-Senate conference committee will hammer out a compromise version and send it to the governor. (A “Yes” vote is for the budget.) Sen. Brendan Crighton Yes INCREASE IN REGISTER OF DEEDS FEES (S 3) Senate 38-2, approved an amendment that would raise the existing surcharge on most Registry of Deeds’ real estate transaction fees by $30 (from $20 to $50). This money helps to fund the Community Preservation Act (CPA) which helps cities and towns preserve open space and historic sites, create aff ordable housing and develop outdoor recreational facilities. Amendment supporters said that when the fund was created in 2000, the state was able to provide communities with a 100 percent match of the funds the community raised through their local option surcharge of up to 3 percent of the local property tax. The state now only matches about 11 percent because of a lack of funding. “I have been trying to increase revenue for the state CPA matching funds for several sessions,” said Sen. Cindy Creem (D-Newton), the sponsor of the amendment. “Over 170 communities are waiting for us to keep our state’s promise to meaningfully partner with them for housing, historic preservation, open space and recreation. Raising the match from 11 percent to 30 percent will help move these important projects along.” “I do not support making housing transaction costs in the commonwealth more expensive when not all cities and towns are opted into the CPA program,” said Sen. Ryan Fattman (R-Webster). “Massachusetts housing and closing costs are already consistently highest in the nation.” “The state is realizing record tax revenue exceeding our benchmark by over 900 million dollars,” said Sen. Dean Tran (RLeominster). “This is indicative of a strong economy and an example of why we should put an emphasis on economic development, creating jobs and help put people to work so that they can provide for their families. It is not the time to raise taxes and fees.” (A “Yes” vote is for raising the surcharge. A “No” vote is against raising it.) Sen. Brendan Crighton Yes SECURITY OF ELECTIONS (S 3) Senate 9-30, rejected an amendment that would require the secretary of state, in consultation with the United States Election Assistance Commission (EAC), to develop new rules and standards to ensure the cyber-security and general security of elections in the commonwealth to combat election fraud and other election security threats. The bill requires the rules to comply with those established by the United States Department of Homeland Security. Amendment supporters said the integrity of our democracy and voting system must be protected. They noted that the state has received $7.9 million from the federal government for the state to spend on election security but has only spent $1 million. Amendment opponents said the EAC and the Department of Homeland Security have not yet issued any guidelines for the state to follow. They noted they support improving election security but argued the state will have to wait until the federal government can get its act together so we can use the funds allocated to us to work on these issues with them. (A “Yes” vote is for the amendment. A “No” vote is against it.) Sen. Brendan Crighton No RAISE MINIMUM EDUCATION AID TO CITIES AND TOWNS (S 3 ) Senate 7-32, rejected an amendment that would increase the minimum Chapter 70 education aid each city and town receives from $30 per pupil to $100 per pupil. Amendment supporters said that despite the $268 million increase in education aid in the budget, more than 180 school districts would see a hike of only $30 per student this year. They argued that the $30 fi gure is unfair and insuffi cient for those districts’ needs. “There are suburban and rural communities that are unfairly represented in the chapter 70 education funding formula and rely upon minimum aid funding per student in the state budget,” said Sen. Ryan Fattman (R-Webster). “One hundred and eighty-two districts across the commonwealth are minimum aid districts with declining student enrollment and $100 per student would have adequately helped these districts which suff er from a broken education funding mechanism.” “I was encouraged by the Senate’s commitment to invest in our public school system,” said Sen. Vinny deMacedo (R-Plymouth). “However, the Senate’s $300 million investment would have had a minimal eff ect on the communities I represent. As minimum aid communities they would benefi t most from a higher per pupil commitment. By spending $100 per pupil the Senate would have been able to better meet the budget needs of my communities and the educational goals of their students.” Some amendment opponents said that even districts receiving the minimum will still see an increase in Chapter 70 aid next year. They noted that the education aid in the Senate is signifi cantly higher than the plan proposed by Gov. Baker and the one approved by the House last month. Others said the Senate should tackle the broader issue of school funding through legislation now pending that will update and make major changes in the school funding formula. “The Senate fi scal year 2020 budget provides $268 million more in Chapter 70 funding to our local school districts than in fiscal year 2019, the largest annual increase in two decades,” said Sen. Jason Lewis (D-Winchester) who opposed the amendment. “This budget also makes signifi cant progress in implementing the recommendations of the Foundation Budget Review Commission, in order to ensure that our public schools are adequately and equitably funded so that every student across the commonwealth has access to a great education.” (A “Yes” vote is for the $100 per pupil. A “No” vote is against it.) Sen. Brendan Crighton No $1.5 MILLION FOR CIVICS EDUCATION (S 3) Senate 39-0, approved an amendment providing $1.5 million for the Civics Project Trust Fund to promote civics education in the state. Amendment supporters said that this funding is a beginning and will capitalize the Civics Project Trust Fund, created by the Legislature last year as part of a broader civics bill, to support the infrastructure, curriculum resources and professional development needed to integrate high-quality civics education into our schools beginning in September 2020. “This money is a down payment on the future of civics education in Massachusetts,” said Sen. Harriette Chandler (D-Worcester), the sponsor of the amendment. “The students that will take these history courses and participate in these civics projects are the future leaders of this state. The future leaders of this state deserve a curriculum that has received robust investment.” The civics education law that was signed into law last year added more topics the civics courses must cover including the function and composition of the branches of local, state and federal government; the roles and responsibilities of a citizen in a democracy; the development of skills to access, analyze and evaluate written and digital media as it relates to history and civics; community diversity and historical trends in voter registration; civic participation relative to disenfranchised voter populations; opportunities to identify and debate issues relative to power, economic status and the common good in democracy. Other provisions include requiring each public school serving grades eight to 12 to provide at least one studentled civics project for each student; and requiring the state to provide information to cities and promote youth membership on municipal boards, committees and commissions. (A “Yes” vote is for the $1.5 million.) Sen. Brendan Crighton Yes $350,000 FOR SUICIDE PREVENTION (S 3) Senate 39-0, approved an amendment increasing funding by $350,000 (from $4,469,372 to $4,819,372) for suicide prevention. “One of my top priorities this session is mental health and suicide prevention, and this amendment ensures that key programs are maintained to provide much-needed services,” said the amendment’s sponsor Sen. Barry Finegold (D-Andover). “We’re facing an epidemic of teen suicide across the country. While teen drunk driving and teen pregnancy rates are way down, suicide rates for teen girls have doubled in recent years, and suicide rates for teen boys have increased by more than 30 percent. This funding, paired with my legislative agenda this session, would look out for our most vulnerable young people and give them the resources they need.” (A “Yes” vote is for the $350,000.) Sen.

THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, May 31, 2019 Page 19 Softball team makes tourney off strength of 5-1 stretch By Greg Phipps t one stage this season, the Saugus softball team stood at 6-6 and a playoff bid looked like a diffi cult task. As it turns out, the Sachems were very much up to the challenge, as they proceeded to win fi ve of their next six games – a stretch that landed them with 11 wins and a spot in the Div. 3 North tournament. The streak concluded with a 12-0 rout of Stoneham in the team’s Senior Day contest last Friday at Belmonte Middle School Field. The game ended in the sixth inning as the Sachems offense exploded with the help of Emma Howard’s three doubles and RBI. Kirby Dalton also drove in a run with a hit, and Nystasia Rowe and Kyleigh Dalton added singles. Pitcher Caitlyn Wood, who has been stellar both on the mound and at bat over the last two weeks, helped herself ofA Senior catcher D.J.

Eric Lesser (D-Longmeadow), the sponsor of the amendment. “These incidents are meant to intimidate some people in our communities, and they tear at the fabric of who we are as a country based on the equal right of everyone to participate in our democracy. With these security grants for synagogues, mosques, community centers and other organizations, we have made clear that hate has no place in our commonwealth.” (A “Yes” vote is for the $500,000.) Sen. Brendan Crighton Yes HOW LONG WAS LAST WEEK’S SESSION? Beacon Hill Roll Call tracks the length of time that the House and Senate were in session each week.

Once again, Wood was a key fi gure, going the distance and giving up just four hits and striking out six. She smacked three hits, including a home run, and drove in five runs. Getting in on the act were Cat Schena with a homer and three RBI, Alexa Ferraro and Howard with three hits each, Alessia Salzillo with two hits and Sadie Diters 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 fi led. 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.

Page 20 THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, May 31, 2019 Moms Cancer Fighting Angels to host Touch-a-Truck event by Jim Miller Adaptive Gardening: Tips and Tools for Older Gardeners Dear Savvy Senior, Can you recommend some good tools and tips for senior gardeners? My 77-year-old mother loves to work in the garden but over the past few years has been plagued by injuries. Concerned Daughter Dear Concerned, Aches, pains and injuries are not uncommon among older gardeners. Because gardening is such a physical activity that often requires a lot of bending and stooping, squatting and kneeling, gripping and lifting, it can be extremely taxing on an aging body. Back pain and knee injuries are most common among older gardeners, along with carpal tunnel syndrome and tennis elbow. To help keep your mom injury-free this summer, here are some tips and gardening equipment ideas that can make gardening a little easier. Warm Up With gardening, good form is very important as well as not overdoing any one activity. A common problem is that gardeners often kneel or squat, putting extra pressure on their knees. Then, to spare their knees, they might stand and bend over for long stretches to weed, dig and plant, straining their back and spine. To help your mom protect her body, she needs to warm up before beginning. Start by stretching, focusing on the legs and lower back. And keep changing positions and activities. Don’t spend hours weeding a fl owerbed. After 15 minutes of weeding, she should stand up, stretch, and switch to another activity like pruning the bushes or just take a break. It’s also important that she recognizes her physical limitations and doesn’t try to do too much all at once. And, when lifting heaver objects, she needs to remember to use her legs to preserve her back. She can do this by keeping the item close to her body and squatting to keep her back as vertical as possible. Laborsaving Tools The right gardening equipment can help too. Kneeling pads can protect knees, and garden seats or stools are both back and knee savers. Lightweight garden carts can make hauling bags of mulch, dirt, plants or other heavy objects much easier. And long-handled gardening tools can help ease the strain on the back by keeping your mom in a standing upright position versus bent over. There are also ergonomic gardening tools with fatter handles and other design features that can make lawn and garden activities a little easier. Easier Watering The chore of carrying water or handling a heavy, awkward hose can also be diffi cult for older gardeners. Some helpful options include lightweight fabric hoses instead of heavy rubber hoses; soaker or drip hoses that can be snaked throughout the garden; thin coil hoses that can be used on the patio or small areas; a hose caddy and reel for easier hose transport around the yard; and a self-winding hose chest that puts the hose up automatically. There are also a variety of ergonomic watering wands that are lightweight, easy to grip, and reach those hard to-get-to plants. To fi nd ergonomic gardening tools and the recommended watering aids, check with local retail stores that sell lawn and garden supplies or try online retailers like Gardeners.com or RadiusGarden.com. Container Gardening If your mom’s backyard garden has become too much for her to handle, she should consider elevated garden beds or container gardening – using big pots, window boxes, hanging baskets, barrels or tub planters. This is a much easier way to garden because it eliminates much of the bend and strain of gardening but still gives her the pleasure of making things grow. Trellises are another nice option that would allow her to garden vertically instead of horizontally. Send your senior questions to: Savvy Senior, P.O.
