Her starting salary will be $196,000, according to the contract approved. “This Committee is making an approximate one-million dollar investment in this individual as the leader of our school district over the course of a fi veyear contract,” veteran School Committee Member Arthur Grabowski said last week. “That’s unprecedented for this district. It’s unprecedented for Saugus Schools to invest that amount of capital into somebody we hope and fervently pray will turn our school district around,” Grabowski said. J& $45 yd.

He said the benefi t of a three-year contract is that the committee isn’t locked into a candidate long-term if things don’t work out. It would be easier for a school district to move on with a three-year contract, he said. “I thought long and hard about my vote. I usually vote what my conscience tells me to vote,” Grabowski said. “But at this moment, in terms of providing a united front to accommodate the superintendent and to be with her 100 percent of the way, I will be voting for this contract … So she knows that she has the committee that’s in place right now behind her 100 percent,” Grabowski said. McMahon, 47, of Marblehead, currently the senior advisor to state Education Commissioner Jeff rey C.

She also earned a Master of Science degree in Education Leadership from Pace University in New York City. School Committee Vice-Chair Ryan Fisher, who chaired the 15-member search committee which reviewed applications for the 25 candidates who initially replied to the superintendent’s opening in Saugus, was thrilled weeks ago with McMahon’s potential to turn things around for Saugus Public Schools. “Like everyone, I'm excited to see where Erin leads the district,” Fisher said in an interview this week. “She’s made it clear she’s in for the long haul. She was in her last two districts for six to eight years each, and she’s said it may take 10 years or more to fi nish the job in Saugus. She’s going to do great,” he predicted. During last week’s School Committee meeting when the contract was approved, Fisher stressed that a fi ve-year contract provides reasonable time for McMahon to do what’s necessary to turn around a district where the Middle and High Schools have undergone close scrutiny by the state Department of Elementary and Secondary Education. Both schools were determined to be in need of state intervention to make improvements. “Every metric tells us that Erin McMahon is going to be an outstanding superintendent,” Fisher told colleagues last week. School Committee Member Joseph “Dennis” Gould – who was vice-chair on the search committee – said all four of the finalists recommended by the search committee impressed him. But McMahon’s background put her in a class by herself, he noted last month. “I am so excited about Erin McMahon being the next superintendent,” Gould said at last week’s meeting.

THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, JUNE 4, 2021 Page 3 New “green machines” for police New economical and environmentally friendly patrol cruisers hit the streets of Saugus By Mark E. Vogler I t’s the latest example of the Town of Saugus’s commitment to “going green”: a police cruiser that saves an estimated 1,276 gallons of fuel a year while having a lesser impact on the environment. Police Officer Domenic Montano was happy to show off the new 2021 Ford Police Interceptor vehicle to a reporter on Monday (May 31) morning as visitors entered Riverside Cemetery for the annual Memorial Day ceremonies at the veterans’ graves. Later in the week, Town Manager Scott C. Crabtree’s office issued a press release to highlight the value of the four new cruisers that were recently activated. “The Board of Selectmen and I are thrilled to announce the arrival of these new hybrid, environmentally-friendly vehicles to our community and its patrol fleet,” Crabtree said in his announcement. “This important and necessary investment will continue to prioritize the safety of the residents of Saugus and the Town’s first responders.” The fully furnished vehicles, which will save an estimated 1,276 gallons of fuel per year through hybrid powertrain, can now be seen throughout the community, according to Crabtree. “Through fuel savings, the cruisers will result in an estimated annual savings of $3,509 per vehicle, per year, compared to the 2018 cruisHISTORIC HIRING | FROM PAGE 2 School Committee by contacting the references of the four finalists, said a five-year contract would protect McMahon from local school politics in which all School Committee members run for reelection every year. Hatch said he wouldn’t want to see a situation where the new superintendent is “beholden to a particular School Committee.” Having the five-year contract will protect McMahon from the politics which have hampered previous school superintendents. “I think it’s going to be a great situation for the town,” Hatch said last week.

The town manager stressed that town officials made “this important community investment” during last December’s Special Town Meeting, when members voted in favor of the new cruisers as part of the Town’s priorities and overall identified capital infrastructure needs. high for the new superintendent. He said she needs to “take the district on her shoulders and say, ‘follow me.’” “Sometimes, uncomfortable choices have to be made … and Erin will have to be the leader,” Grabowski told his colleagues. “I would hope she stands up for what is right and not what is politically expedient for our district,” he said. Grabowski said he hopes the new superintendent will advocate aggressively for more funding if that’s what is needed to improve the school district – and not be influenced to accept whatever budget the town administration recommends to run the School Department. (Courtesy photo to The Saugus Advocate) Crabtree said the investment in new police cruisers will allow the Police Department to replace current line cars with high mileage or that require frequent maintenance. Each of the new cruisers is fully marked and equipped with the latest technology, computers, radio communication and secure vaults for equipment storage. “I would like to thank everyone and the residents of Saugus for their ongoing support of important public safety equipment investments like this,” Crabtree said. “It is essential that public safety vehicles that are used on a daily, high-demand, high-performance basis be fully functional and safe. We are proud to provide that for our public safety responders and community.”

A rendering of the main entrance of the proposed building project Northeast Metro Tech) W AKEFIELD – Superintendent David DiBarri and the Building Committee at Northeast Metropolitan Regional Vocational High School (Northeast Metro Tech) are pleased to share that Gilbane Building Company has been hired as the project’s construction manager at-risk (CMR). Designed by architect Drummey Rosane Anderson with PMA Consultants serving as the owner’s project manager, the new school will be a stateof-the-art facility and will allow Northeast to grow its enrollment from 1,270 students to 1,600 – a 26 percent increase. The increase in available seats is expected to dramatically shorten the district’s annual waitlist, which on average totals approximately 400 students. The district is wrapping up the Schematic Design phase, through which details of the design and cost estimates are being fi nalized. The Schematic Design Report is slated to be submitted to the Massachusetts School Building Authority (MSBA), a state agency that supports the funding of capital improvement projects in the Commonwealth’s public schools, for consideration in July. Headquartered in Rhode Island with a local offi ce in Boston, Gilbane has been providing construction management services for Massachusetts projects since 1946. Gilbane has extensive experience with large-scale and vocational K-12 school projects, including Quincy Comprehensive High School in Quincy, Minuteman Regional High School in Lexington and Essex North Shore Agricultural & Technical School in Danvers. “Hiring a construction manager is a signifi cant step forward in the Northeast Metro Tech building project,” DiBarri said. “With Gilbane on board, we can now begin to move forward with the fine-tuning of our Schematic Design drawings and cost estimate to build the project. We look forward to sharing these details as they are fi nalized with our communities in the coming weeks and months through forums, events and regular updates.” “We’re incredibly excited to be a part of the NEMT [Northeast Metro Tech] project team. Having worked with both PMA and DRA in the past on similar successful projects, we’re confi dent we can work together through the next phases of design and construction to build a contemporary school the NEMT district communities will be proud of for years to come,” said Gilbane Building Company Senior VP Michael O’Brien, who is Massachusetts and Northern New England business unit leader for the company. The building project is estimated to cost $317.5 million, and MSBA will contribute between $110-1140 million in grant funding to support it, a total which will be fi nalized in August. Northeast’s 12 sending communities will be responsible for the remainder of the project costs. Tax impact information for all 12 communities will be available this summer, and voters will have the opportunity to vote on the project this fall. The new NEMT High School will address the current facility’s outdated building systems, including much-needed ADA accessibility and code compliance upgrades, in addition to overcrowding. The new school will feature 21st-century learning environments, improved Individualized Education Program (IEP) accommodations, state-of-the-art shop space, expanded program off erings, a new primary access roadway from Farm Street to reduce traffi c congestion, a full-size gym, a 750-seat auditorium, outdoor space for learning and a new (Photo Courtesy of cafeteria.

Page 6 THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, JUNE 4, 2021 A crackdown on unruly kids “Before someone gets hurt or killed, we need to address this,” Town Meeting Member Robert Camuso Sr. pleads By Mark E. Vogler P recinct 2 Town Meeting Member Robert J. Camuso, Sr. crafted a long email to selectmen this week titled “Kids riding into oncoming traffic & vandalism in our parks.” “These dangerous stunts & playing chicken with traffic is illegal and happening more & more every day,” Camuso wrote. “Before someone gets hurt or killed, we need to address this because car VS bicycle...car wins every time.” Camuso didn’t think the email was enough, so he appeared at Tuesday (May 25) night’s Board of Selectmen’s meeting to elaborate in detail. “Saugus has a problem and they need to fix it,” Camuso told the board. He even mentioned that he had called the Peabody police to solicit advice on how a similar juvenile problem was dealt with in that community. Camuso didn’t get any resistance. Just positive feedback from town officials that something needed to be done – a crackdown on the unruly kids who were practicing dangerous behavior. Saugus Police Lt. Arthur Connors agreed that something needs to be done “before there’s a tragedy.” “One of these kids is goblemakers on bicycles were also riding them over the new basketball courts. “Maybe catch these kids and make an example of them,” Cicolini suggested. The town and the Police Deing to get hit and we don’t want that,” Lt. Connor said. Selectmen thanked Camuso for his efforts to bring a potentially serious problem to public light. “Someone is going to get killed. It absolutely had to be addressed,” Selectman Jeff Cicolini said. “We need to fix this before something bad happens,” he said. Cicolini said he had observed similar unruly behavior by kids that was the basis of Camuso’s email. He cited the juvenile vandalism on new town playgrounds and basketball courts. “These kids are running amok, pouring Chinese food down the slides,” Cicolini said, noting that the trouHe was there in spirit DAV Commander Charlie DiMare gets to watch a Memorial Day ceremony from his hospital room – via video By Mark E. Vogler F riends and relatives say Charlie DiMare never misses a Memorial Day or Veterans Day event in Saugus – even though it’s not his hometown. “Charlie doesn’t miss anything if he can help it,” Saugus Veterans Council Commander Steve Castinetti said this week. So, the 89-year-old U.S. Navy veteran who served in the Korean War was conspicuously absent at Monday’s Memorial Day Ceremony in Riverside Cemetery. DiMare is the commander of the Disabled American Veterans (DAV) Organization Chapter 115, a regional veterans’ group that holds its meeting at the American Legion Hall on Taylor Street, so his absence from important veterans’ events is bound to concern local veterans leaders.

Crabtree said. “I’m sure they will continue to use them,” he said. Lt. Connors agreed to meet with Camuso sometime after the meeting to listen to his suggestions on what police may be able to do to address the problem of the unruly kids. In his email, Camuso suggested that Saugus police consider some aggressive options to stop the problem – like confiscating the kids’ bicycles and making the parents pay for towing. Perhaps, there could be $20 fines for violations for kids for obstructing traffic “unlawfully in a dangerous way.” Camuso said it irked him to see gangs of kids on bicycles terrorizing senior citizens in traffic and degenerating to bad, offensive behavior. “Kids will be kids,” Camuso agreed. “But to give hand gestures by grabbing their private areas, vulgar language, spitting on our residents & senior citizens who are scared in their own vehicles is not what residents want or expect to see either in Saugus,” he wrote in his email. “These actions need to be handled & prevented if it means to hurt these kids parents in the wallet to get results so be it,” he added.

THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, JUNE 4, 2021 Page 9 The Ryan Express By Th e Old Sachem, Bill Stewart M any of you have never seen him pitch, but I can assure you that he is one of the Greatest Of All Time (a GOAT). Nolan Ryan was one of the old-time pitchers who fi red the ball over 100 miles per hour. He was born ON January 31, 1947, in Refugio, Texas, became a major league pitcher, then a sports executive. At nine years old, Ryan became a Little Leaguer in Alvin, Texas, and was an All-Star as an 11- and 12-year-old. In junior high school he could throw a softball over 100 yards. He played baseball and football as a ninth-grader, but gave up football, deciding to concentrate on baseball. At Alvin High School he once struck out 21 batters in a seven-inning game. He was evaluated by Red Murff , a scout for the New York Mets, when Ryan was a sophomore, and Red said that Ryan had “the best arm I have seen in my life.” Reportedly, Nolan sometimes broke bones in catchers’ hands with his fastball. His senior year at Alvin, he acquired a record of 19 wins and three losses and led the Alvin Yellow Jackets to the Texas High School fi nals. He pitched in 27 games with 20 starts, 12 complete games, 211 strikeouts and 61 walks. Ryan was drafted by the Mets in the 12th round of the 1965 major league draft as the 295th pick overall. He was assigned to the Marion Mets of the Appalachian League for the Mets team in the Florida Instructional League, and he was 6 and 9 in 1965 with 150 strikeouts in 120 innings and a 4.33 ERA. Next year he advanced to the Class-A Western Carolinas League with the Greenville Mets, where he won 17 and lost 2 and had an ERA of 2.51 with 272 strikeouts in 183 innings. He was promoted to the Class AA Williamsport Mets of the Eastern League with 35 strikeouts in 19 innings. He was called up to the Mets in late 1966 and played in two games. In 1967 he was assigned to the Class AAA Jacksonville, where he pitched three games, started one game for the Class A Winter Haven Mets and pitched eight games in the Florida Instructional League. He pitched 34 innings over this span with 54 strikeouts. He was out much of the 1967 season due to illness, an arm injury and serving in the Army Reserve. The 1968 season saw him return to the major leagues with the Mets, and he remained in the league until 1993, a span of 27 years. He was used as a reliever because the team had Tom Seaver and Jerry Koosman in the rotation. The Mets reached the World Series in 1969 with Ryan as a starter. In the National League Championship against the Atlanta Braves, Ryan completed 7 innings of relief in game 3. In the World Series that season, he saved game 3 against the Baltimore Orioles, pitching 2 ½ shutout innings, and the Mets won 2-1. The Mets won the series in fi ve games. In 1974 he tied Seaver’s record of 19 strikeouts in a game. He viewed his time with Seaver as learning to switch from a flamethrower to a pitcher. He was traded to the California Angels in the off -season of 1971. In his fi ve seasons as a Met, he pitched in 105 games, had 74 starts, a 29-38 record and a 3.58 ERA, and in over 511 innings he walked 344 and struck out 493 batters. As an Angel, with a team record of under .500 during his time, he had signifi cant seasons: 19-16 in 1972, 21-16 in 1973, 22-16 in 1974. On July 9, 1972, he became the seventh American League pitcher to strike out 3 batters with only 9 pitches against the Red Sox. Ryan’s fi rst major league record: He struck out 383 batters in the 1973 season. He tossed two no-hitters in the 1973 season. He faced the Red Sox on June 14, 1974, tossTHIS WEEK ON SAUGUS TV Sunday, June 6 from 9 to 11 p.m. on Channel 8 – “Sunday Night Stooges” (The Three Stooges).

He had another no-hitter in 1974, and a fourth in 1975, tying Sandy Kofax’s record. In eight seasons with the Angels, he had a record of 138 wins and 121 losses, an ERA of 3.07, 1,302 walks and 2,416 strikeouts, over 288 starts and 156 complete games. The Angels released him in 1979. Ryan was with the Houston Astros for the seasons 1980–1988. On November 19, 1979, Nolan Ryan became the fi rst million-dollar player, signing a four-year contract for $4.5 million, quadrupling his salary with the Angels. The Angels made it to the post-season in 1980, but lost in the National League fi nals. During the season, Nolan recorded his 3,000th strikeout. In the 1981 season he threw his fi fth no-hitter and won the NL ERA title with a mark of 1.69. In the 1982 season he passed Walter Johnson’s all-time strikeout record and fi nished the 1985 season with his 4,000th. During his nine seasons with the Astros, he had a record of 106 wins, 94 losses, 282 starts, a 3.13 ERA, 796 walks and 1,866 strikeouts in 1,854 innings. After a contract dispute after the 1988 season, Ryan signed with the Texas Rangers; he was now 42 years old. On August 22, 1989, Ryan struck out Ricky Henderson to become the only pitcher to record 5,000 career strikeouts. In 1990 he pitched his sixth no-hitter against the Athletics and earned his 300th win against the Milwaukee Brewers. In 1993 he announced that he would retire after the season. He tore a ligament in his arm against Seattle. In his fi ve seasons with the Rangers, he had a 51-39 record, an ERA of 3.43, 353 walks and 939 strikeouts in 840 innings over 129 starts. His career statistics were 324 wins, 292 losses, an ERA of 3.19, 807 games, 5,386 innings pitched, walked 2,178 and struck out 5,714. Over his career he was the only pitcher to record seven no-hitters, his last on May 1, 1991, against the Toronto Blue Jays in Arlington Stadium in Texas. He holds 51 Major League records, including 5,714 career strikeouts, 215 career double-digit strikeout games, 7 career no-hitters, 12 career 1 hitters (tied with Bob Feller), 18 career 2 hitters, 31 career 3 hitters, 15 200-strikeout seasons, 6 300-strikeout seasons, 6.555 fewest career hits per nine innings, 5.26 fewest single season hits per nine innings (1972), lowest career batting average allowed (minimum 1,500 innings), .204, 26 seasons with at least nine wins, 2,795 career walks, 10 grand slams allowed (tied) and 757 career stolen basses allowed. Among his business interests, Ryan founded the Ryan Sanders Sports & Entertainment company, the ownership group for Round Rock Express, which owns the Triple-A Affi liate of the Texas Rangers and other sports businesses. He has written six books about baseball. After retirement he worked with the federal government to promote physical fitness; his “Nolan Ryan Fitness Guide” was published by the President’s Council on Physical Fitness and Sports in 1994. He suffered a heart attack in 2000 and received a double coronary bypass. He remained in baseball after retirement as the President and CEO of the Texas Rangers from 2008 to 2013. He became a special assistant for the Houston Astros from 2014 to 2019. Ryan and Frank Robinson are the only two major league players to have their numbers retired by three teams they played for. Nolan Ryan was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1999 with 98.79% of the vote in his fi rst year of eligibility. In that year The Sporting News listed him among the 100 Greatest Baseball Players, and he was elected to the Major League Baseball All-Century Team. The Alvin Independent School District opened the Nolan Ryan Junior High School in Pearland, Texas, and the Texas State Legislature named the State Highway 288 as the Nolan Ryan Expressway. He tossed rockets past batters during his career. One of his remarkable days was when Detroit Tigers fi rst baseman and cleanup hitter Norm Cash, came to the plate in the last of the ninth with two outs after he had struck out two times earlier in the game. Cash came to the plate with a clubhouse table leg instead of a bat. Plate umpire Ron Luciano ordered Cash to return with a regular bat, and Cash replied, “Why? I won’t hit him anyway!” Today many pitchers can reach 100 miles an hour, but Ryan could do it consistently. I saw him in Fenway Park a few times, and he ranks among the best in my imagination.

Page 12 THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, JUNE 4, 2021 SAUGUS GARDENS IN THE PANDEMIC Here’s what’s blooming in town this week to make your walks more enjoyable By Laura Eisener N ow that the danger of frost is past, it is safe to plant tropical annuals and warm weather crops like tomatoes, beans and melons. This week is the most floriferous time of year in our climate and the meteorological start of summer. The rains of Memorial Day weekend may have dampened some cookout plans, but it was a relief for many plants which had suffered from the dryness of this spring, and a relief as well for those of us who had been standing holding a hose too many days this spring! Gordon Shepard has made sure that there are plenty of flowers at the veterans’ plots at Riverside, as he does every year. Volunteers have sought out veterans’ graves and planted a garden of flags for the holiday, and all over town where there are monuments, flags and flowers abound. Wax begonias (Begonia semperflorens hybrids) like those at the G.A.R. plot – the Grand Army of the Republic was a large, nationwide Civil War veterans’ organization – are among the most popular bedding plants, as they can tolerate summer heat and grow well in light conditions varying from full sun to part shade. The shiny foliage keeps them from drying out easily and is eye-catching. Depending on variety, the leaves may be bright green, bronze or deep burgundy. The flowers may be bright red, pink or white. Because they stay low to the ground, wax begonias do not have the trouble some longer stemmed begonias do, which is a tendency for the stems to break off in windy weather. Like many of the most popular summer annuals, wax begonias bloom consistently all summer and into the fall until a frost. Donna Manoogian, on behalf of the Saugus Garden Club, decorated the flagpole dedicated to Saugus’s first Vietnam War casualty, Corporal Michael DeProfio USMC, in front of the Belmonte School. Nancy Sayles recently added some annuals in patriotic colors to the garden beside the front door of the Saugus American Legion hall on Taylor Street. This small garden is dedicated “To those who served in the Armed Forces of the United States of America -Past-Present-Future.” Red HONORING A FALLEN MARINE: The Marine Cpl.

Procopio Post 210 at 44 Taylor St. Nancy Sayles recently added some annuals in patriotic colors to the garden. (Courtesy photo to The Saugus Advocate by Laura Eisener) flowering scarlet sage (Salvia splendens), originally from Brazil, has become a very frequently planted summer annual all over the world. Despite its common name, it can be found in other colors, including purple, blue, pink and white. A form called ‘Bicolor’ has both red and white flowers on the same stalk. The first one scientifically described in the 19th century had a red flower, and the red varieties remain among the most popular. Blue floss flower (Ageratum houstonianum), which is planted near the garden dedication stone, is one of the few truly blue annuals, although it can also be found in purple, pink and white. Nancy has also planted white annual sweet alyssum (Lobularia maritima) and dusty miller (Centaurea cineraria) in this little garden around some perennial sage (Salvia ‘May Night’) and a small evergreen shrub, andromeda (Pieris ‘Cavatine). While most years the andromeda would have finished blooming by June, this spring’s cool temperatures have prolonged the blooming period, so you may still see the small, white, bell-shaped flowers for another week or two. Among the most noticeable shrubs in bloom this week are several hybrids of catawba rhododendron (Rhododendron catawbiense). This largeleaved North American evergreen shrub has long been a popular landscape plant because it combines year-round foliage with showy late spring flowers. Depending on variety, the mature height can range from 5 feet to over 15 feet. Catawbas are very similar to another large-leaved native, the rosebay rhododendron (Rhododendron maximum), which blooms several weeks later, often around the Fourth of July. Next to Town Hall resplendent in its patriotic bunting, a large ‘Nova Zembla’ rhododendron is at its peak of bloom this CIVIL WAR SOLDIER: Paul Kenworthy, wearing a replica Civil War greatcoat and a hat bearing the badge of the Harvard Regiment, contemplates the Grand Army of the Republic plot at Riverside.

The cultivar name literally means “New Land” and was named for two islands in the Arctic Sea owned by Russia, perhaps alluding to this variety’s cold hardiness. It flowers near Memorial Day each year and seems to call attention to the World War I monument beside it. Editor’s Note: Laura Eisener is a landscape design consultant who helps homeowners with landscape design, plant selection and placement of trees and shrubs, as well as perennials. She is a member of the Saugus Garden Club and offered to write a series of articles about “what’s blooming in town” shortly after the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic. She was inspired after seeing so many people taking up walking.

Page 14 THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, JUNE 4, 2021 By Mark E. Vogler H THE SOUNDS OF SAUGUS “In one of the pictures sketched of Randy, there was ere are a few tidbits that you might want to know about this week in Saugus. Hats off to the Saugus High Class of 2021! Tonight (Friday, June 4) is indeed a special night for 163 Saugus teenagers – the Saugus High School graduating Class of 2021. It is a legacy class, being the first to graduate from the new Saugus Middle-High School. It is also a class that will be remembered as one that had to cope with the COVID-19 pandemic over parts of two years since the outbreak in March of 2020 led to the challenges of remote learning. Special congratulations are in order for the top two scholastic students in this year’s graduating class: Michael Kenny, who will give this year’s Valedictory Address as the Class of 2021’s top scholastic ranking student with the highest grade point average. This year’s runner-up – the Salutatorian speaker – is Charles Denovellis. Also deserving of high praise is Emma Peacock, who is president of the Saugus High Class of 2021. That is a challenging task for any student – being the leader of a COVID-19-challenged class. I plan to be at Stackpole Field tonight to chronicle the last chapter of this year’s historic Saugus High School class in what will be the school’s 150th commencement exercises. And this will also be the grand commencement finale at Stackpole. Construction is nearing completion on the brand-new sports complex named after the late Saugus sports legend, Christie Serino, Jr., which should serve the town well for future Saugus High School commencement exercises. About the best way The Saugus Advocate can wish the SHS Class of 2021 the very best is to borrow a few lines of Saugus High School Principal Mike Hashem, as posted on his special website for graduating seniors: “This has been a tumultuous time in our society, community, and schools. This global pandemic that we have dealt with for the past 14-15 months have drastically impacted your senior year. You have worked with remote, hybrid, and full in-person learning models, all within the last few months. “You have witnessed your old school be demolished and you have transitioned to our new Saugus Middle High School Complex. These challenges and adversities have not stopped you and by overcoming them, you should be well prepared to deal with the future. “For some of you, this will mean a job and the responsibilities of family living. For others of you, this will mean the transition to college and further years of study and preparation. Whichever course you take in the future, it is our sincere hope that you will look back on your years at Saugus High School as having prepared you to meet the challenges that life will present. “We want to thank you in advance for making the graduation ceremony an exciting and memorable one. All of us here at Saugus High School wish each of you the happiness of a productive life, the respect of your peers, and the love of your family. … Congratulations to the Class of 2021!!!” We have a winner! We have a winner in last week’s “Guess Who Got Sketched” contest. Congratulations to Diane McConnell, who contacted us with the correct answer. Her name was picked from a number of potential winners’ names out of the green Boston Red Sox cap. Here’s last week’s answer, offered by the person who goes by the name of The Sketch Artist: “The answer to last week’s sketch is Randy Briand. Randy has done many projects and much good for Saugus. However he’s quiet about it all so most don’t hear they just enjoy or see the benefits from Randy’s generosity. “This past Memorial Day weekend Randy as the Veteran’s Graves Officer, was at the Cemetery from sun up setting up tents and making sure everything would be set up for Memorial Day Ceremony amidst the inclement weather. “He was handing out flags to the youth, to parents and anyone that wanted to put flags on our Veteran’s graves. Randy passes the flags out hoping to get more youth involved as they are the ones to carry on the tradition he has said. Mr. Donald Wong graciously awarding Randy with the 2019 Founder’s Day Man of the Year Award (Debbie Dion-Faust was 2019 Woman of the Year.) “Randy oversees several outreaches and he has served three tours of Duty in Vietnam for the Military. A very interesting life from such a humble soul. Thankyou Randy, keep shining your light! “Yours Truly, “The Sketch Artist” prefer to have it spotlight the good people of Saugus.

But you have to enter to win! Look for the winner and identification in next week’s “The Sounds of Saugus.” Please leave your mailing address in case you are a winner. (Courtesy illustration to The Saugus Advocate by a Saugonian who goes by the name of “The Sketch Artist”) Reader offers “Shout-Outs” for local businesses Avid Saugus Advocate reader Jeanie Bartolo offered two more “Shout-Outs” this week, this time for two local businesses “who for years have donated their time helping Saugus.” “The first ‘Shout Out’ and huge thank you goes to Nick’s Pizza for once again donating pizza for the kids flagging the graves of our Veterans at Riverside Cemetery last Friday afternoon in preparation for the Memorial Day services. The kids did a great job and loved the pizza! “The second ‘Shout Out’ goes to Bruce the owner of Done Right Landscaping who beautifully landscaped and mulched the island at the intersection of Winter and Central Streets in honor of our Veterans. Bruce also landscapes many of the islands and rotaries throughout the town free of charge. He makes Saugus so much prettier, so thank you Bruce for doing this for us, we certainly appreciate it.” Shirley Bogdan emailed us another “shout-out,” this one for local historical and author Tom Sheehan: “I’d like to shout out to author Tom Sheehan who has had 2 articles published in the Boston Sunday Globe regarding the ‘old times’ in Saugus. Great job Tom.” Sue Fleming, another loyal Saugus Advocate reader, emailed us the following “shout-out” this week: “I would like to give a Shout Out to you for the excellent articles in last week’s Advocate. The remembrance of Staff Sgt. Arthur F. DeFranzo was touching. Thank you for the story explaining to us all the heroics of Sgt. DeFranzo. We are all proud of him. Also your articles on the Week-end of Reflection and remembering your brother Lance should remind us to be thankful. As we visit cemeteries visiting our loved ones we need to remember how lucky we are. We are lucky to have you on the staff of the Advocate.” Thank you, Sue. We appreciate the praise, but would cate reader brough to our attention what turned out to be a glaring omission in “Saugus By the Numbers,” at the end of last week’s front page Memorial Day story. We published the numbers for Saugus servicemen who were killed during World War I, World War II, the Korean War and the Vietnam War. To our knowledge, there are no numbers, at least readily available, for the number of Saugus servicemen killed in combat during the Civil War and the Revolutionary War. But there is one number that is quite obvious for Saugus servicemen and women who served in the Iraq War. And that number should have been included in our overall count of Saugus service people killed in action. It was a gross overcite that needs to be addressed. So, we will add one more line to our “Saugus By the Numbers” for future Memorial Day coverage. And this is for US Marine CPL Scott Procopio, who was killed in action on April 2, 2006. Cpl. Procopio should be a household word in contemporary Saugus, since he is a war hero who gave the ultimate sacrifice. He was born and raised in Saugus and graduated with the Saugus High Class of 2003. He joined the United States Marine Corps in 2004 and was assigned as a machine gunner with Kilo Co., 3rd Battalion, 8th Marines, based out of Camp Lejeune, N.C. His first deployment to Iraq was in 2005, when he was in Fallujah for the first major Iraqi elections and was decorated for his actions in helping to repel a major insurgent attack on the Abu Ghraib prison compound. Procopio returned to Iraq in early 2006, again as a machine gunner with the 3rd Battalion, Kilo Co., but this time to Ramadi. He was killed alongside two other Marines and their Navy corpsman as a result of a remotely detonated roadside bomb. Procopio was manning the machine gun atop of the vehicle that he and his buddies were patrolling in when the bomb exploded. Every day when I come to Saugus, I usually park my car on Taylor Street near the Saugus Public Library and a short walking distance from the American Legion Hall – which is more formally known as Marine Cpl. Scott J. Procopio Saugus American Legion Post 210. It is a major meeting place in town for veterans’ events. There is a very informative display in a glass case which is about Cpl. Procopio that greets visitors as they enter Legion Hall. So, as an outsider, I have known about Cpl. Procopio for some time because I have taken photos of that display case and written stories about this modern-day hero from Saugus. Saugus Public Library set to reopen I have some great news about one of my favorite places in town – the Saugus Public Library. Alan Thibeault, Director, Saugus Public Library, issued the following press release this week: “The Trustees and staff of the Saugus Public Library are pleased to announce the Library’s reopening on Monday, June 7th for in-person browsing, reading, and computer use. This will be a full reopening; no appointments necessary. “Face coverings and social distancing will be required in the Library as in other Town buildings. Patrons are also urged to make liberal use of our hand sanitizer stations and/or handwashing facilities. This will help keep everyone safe. “All public areas of the building will be available except for the Children’s Play Area, the smaller 2nd Floor Study Room, and Community Room. Some seating has been removed from public areas to assist in social distancing. THE SOUNDS OF SAUGUS | SEE PAGE 15

THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, JUNE 4, 2021 Page 15 THE SOUNDS OF SAUGUS | FROM PAGE 14 We have also taken some public computers out of service for this reason. “Due to the reopening, we will end Front Door Pickup services after Thursday, June 3rd. For the time being, we will not be hosting meetings or events in our building. Most ongoing virtual programming will continue. In addition, we are planning some outdoor, in-person programs during the summer months. “We look forward to the resumption of in-person programs and events in the Library in what we hope is the not-too-distant future. We’d like to thank our patrons for their patience and support during this extended shutdown. “We’d also like to thank the Town of Saugus for its continued support of public library services, efforts toward keeping the community safe during this pandemic, and for their invaluable assistance in our reopening preparations. “Beginning on June 7th, we will be open in accordance with our Summer schedule: Monday thru Thursday, 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Friday, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. We look forward to welcoming you all back into your Library on June 7th! “– Alan Thibeault, Director, Saugus Public Library “SAU@NOBLENET.ORG” Let’s hear it for strawberries!

A community garden update If you are young or old and feel like doing some real earthy community service, why not join the growing team that’s been assisting in the creation of the Community Garden that’s going to help feed the hungry and needy people of Saugus? Contact The Rev. John Beach of St. John’s Episcopal Church to get the latest update on how the garden is doing and what you can do to help. Anyone who wants to help out Rev. John on this noble project, call him at 774 961-9881 or send him an email at revjbeach@gmail.com. Here is a copy of a letter that Rev. John emailed us yesterday: Dear kind people, Greetings. We have planted all of the seedlings which have been brought to the garden this past week. It is looking gorgeous and the rain has saved us from the task of watering. We invite any who are available to join us for an hour between 9 and 11 in the morning on Friday or Saturday. We shall be constructing the trellis for the peas, spreading fertilizer, and distributing the mulch. It would be a joy to see you there. Also, if any among you have some tomato cages or stakes, or some wire cutters we can borrow for the morning, please let me know. It would be greatly appreciated. Peace, John+ The Rev. John Beach St. John’s Episcopal Church Saugus, Massachusetts 01906 We will keep you posted as the garden continues to grow. Remember folks, this is your garden. Be a part of it. So, what do the kids have to say? I have received an interesting email from Fae Saulenas – an avid reader of local newspapers, including The Saugus Advocate – and outspoken advocate of the public’s right to know. I don’t know any other Saugus resident who champions the first amendment as vigorously as Fae does (She was responsible for getting the library to set up a special panel discussion on the Open Meeting and Public Records Laws a couple of years ago). She still believes that newspapers have to play a vital role as a watchdog of Public Records and Open Meeting Laws if a community like Saugus is to have any chance of good government. Oftentimes, she sends an email accompanied by letters she has written chastising public officials for not being more transparent and for ignoring records requests she has made. Usually, she requests that her name be left out of the emails if local reporters choose to follow-up on any of her leads. But emails are public records under the state Public Records Law. So, I choose to share this particular with our readers: “Mark, you often ask if readers have any suggestions for your column, The Advocate Asks, this is mine: I would sincerely like to hear from the young people whose behavior has been the subject of so many recent news articles. See attached pdf. In particular, I’m very curious about their messaging which has been described by some as terrorizing. In my opinion, the actions of the young can underlie a great many things that they do not yet know how to put into words. I strongly believe that these young people have a message that the community needs to hear. My hope is that if they are given an impartial and safe space to share in words what their actions are meant to convey ... they might be able to do it. You are an exceptionally astute interviewer. Prior to Covid19, my daughter Lauren and I encountered these youngsters on bikes late at night many times on Central Street. I’d pull her HP van over to the side of the road, kill the lights and watch their acrobatic wheelies. After their performance ended they’d leave and we’d proceed to our destination. The behavior is nothing new but it has certainly escalated. Thank you for considering my request.” Thanks for the email, Fae. Since I believe in providing a public forum for any reader who wants to broach a local issue, I will do what I can to seek feedback from young readers. Okay, young readers of The Saugus Advocate. Here’s your invitation to speak out if you choose. I will be glad to meet with you in the picnic area of the Saugus Iron Works National Historic Site some morning or afternoon and have a casual conversation – on the record – offering your own thoughts on this recent vandalism, which has led to a crackdown on bad youth behavior. I look forward to hearing from you soon. Cliftondale forum coming up The Cliftondale Revitalization Committee is organizing a public forum for June 21 at 7 p.m., with a location to be determined.

Help the Vietnam Vets “Roll To DC” This came in from Joseph “Dennis” Gould, a Vietnam War Era veteran who served four years with the U.S. Navy. He has organized a fundraising drive that will help area Vietnam War Era veterans visit Washington, D.C., in the fall of next year. “I am glad to announce that we will have a ‘Roll to DC’ for Vietnam Era Veterans from Melrose, Saugus, Lynn and surrounding towns September 2022. “The managers of this effort will be Saugus VFW Post # 2346. “Gould will be Chair and David Nelson, Saugus American Legion and Stacey Minchello, Melrose Senior Center will be Vice Chairs. “Stan King, Quartermaster Post # 2346 be Treasurer. “The trip will be a four night trip to DC staying at Presidential Inn on Andrews Air Force Base, home of Presidential Aircraft.

THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, JUNE 4, 2021 Page 17 S y Senior How to Downsize Your Home for a Move Sa e a t D BY JIM MILLER Dear Willa, The process of weeding through a house full of stuff and parting with old possessions is difficult and overwhelming for most people. A good place to start is to see if your kids, grandkids or other family members would like any of your unused possessions. Whatever they don’t want, here are a few tips and services that may help you downsize. Sell It Selling your stuff is one way to get rid of your possessions and pad your pocketbook at the same time. Selling options may include consignment shops, a garage sale, estate sale and selling online. Consignment shops are good for selling old clothing, household furnishings and decorative items – they typically get 30 to 40 percent of the sale price. A good old-fashion garage sale is another option, or for largescale downsizing you could hire an estate sale company to come in and sell your items. See EstateSales.net and EstateSales.org to locate options in your area. Some estate companies will even pick up your stuff and sell it at their own location – they typically take about 35 percent of the profi ts. Selling online is also a great option and opens you up to a wider audience. The OfferUp app (OfferUp.com), Facebook Marketplace (Facebook. com/marketplace), Craigslist (Craigslist.org) and the CPlus for Craigslist app (Yanfl ex.com) are great options for selling locally, which can eliminate the packing and shipping costs and hassle. These websites and apps also don’t take a cut of your sales, but you’re responsible for connecting with your buyer and making the exchange of money and goods. Donate It If you itemize on your tax returns, donating your belongings to charitable organizations is another way to downsize and get a tax deduction. The Salvation Army (SAtruck. org, 800-728-7825) will actually come to your house and pick up a variety of household items, including furnishings Senio nior i nir ior Y Dear Savvy Senior, What tips can you off er for downsizing? My husband and I would like to relocate from our house into a retirement community condo near our daughter but need to get rid of a lot of personal possessions before we can move. Overwhelmed Willa and clothing. Goodwill (Goodwill.org) is another good option to donate to but they don’t offer pickup services. If your deductions exceed $500, you’ll need to fi le Form 8283, “Noncash Charitable Contributions” (IRS.gov/pub/ irs-pdf/f8283.pdf). You’ll also need a receipt from the organization for every batch of items you donate and will need to create an itemized list of the items donated. To calculate fair market value for your stuff, use the Salvation Army’s donation guide at SAtruck.org/home/donationvalueguide. Toss It If you have a lot of junk you want to get rid of, contact your municipal trash service to see if they provide bulk curbside pickup services. Or, depending on where you live, you could hire a company like 1-800-Got-Junk (1800gotjunk.com, 800-468-5865) or Junk-King (Junk-King.com, 888-888-5865) to come in and haul it off for a moderate fee. Another disposal option is Bagster (TheBagster.com, 877-789-2247) by Waste Management. This is a dumpster bag that you purchase for around $30, fi ll it to a limit of 3,300 pounds and schedule a pickup, which costs anywhere between $100 and $300 depending on your area. Get Help If you want or need some help, consider hiring a senior move manager. These are professional organizers who help older adults and their families with the daunting process of downsizing and moving to a new residence. To locate one in your area, visit the National Association of Senior Move Managers at NASMM. org or call 877-606-2766. You can also search at Caring Transitions (CaringTransitions.com), which is a large senior relocation and transition services franchise company that has more than 200 franchises nationwide. Send your senior questions to: Savvy Senior, P.O. Box 5443, Norman, OK 73070, or visit SavvySenior. org. Jim Miller is a contributor to the NBC Today show and author of “The Savvy Senior” book. SACHEMS | FROM PAGE 7 mistakes out there – which has been our issue all season with such a young team – but the guys kept battling and came up with the big plays at the right time.” The contest was deadlocked at 2-2 after seven innings. Peabody took a 2-0 lead early and kept it until the fi fth when the Sachems erupted for two runs to tie it. The visiting Tanners retook the advantage with a tally in the top of the ninth. Casaletto not only stroked the winning hit (he fi nished with two hits in the game) but also earned the win on the mound. He tossed three innings of relief and allowed one run on three hits. He fanned four batters. Along with Macone’s game-tying RBI, Ryan Anderson and Kyle McLaughlin drove in runs. Michael Howard had two hits, including a two-bagger, and Sean O’Rourke, Nathan Ing and Anthony Cicolini also contributed hits. Moving forward, Saugus will look to seize on the good feeling of Wednesday’s lategame upset triumph over an always-strong Peabody team. The only previous one-run win for the Sachems this year was a 3-2 victory over Gloucester back on May 11. “I’m hoping this gives us a lot of momentum. That’s a Division I team we beat, so now we’ve maybe stolen a game that we weren’t supposed to win,” Luis said. “Right now, we’re just trying to prepare for the [postseason] tournament and get better every day.” The Sachems return to action on Monday when they host Salem at World Series Park (scheduled 4 p.m. start).

Page 18 THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, JUNE 4, 2021 Beacon Hill Roll Call By Bob Katzen A note from Bob Katzen, Publisher of Beacon Hill Roll Call: Join me this Sunday night and every Sunday night between 5 p.m. and 8 p.m. for my talk show “The Bob Katzen Baby Boomer and Gen X Show.” Jump in my time capsule and come back to the simpler days of the 1950s, 1960s, 1970s and 1980s. On Sunday, June 6, we will be celebrating our one-year anniversary with a special episode of the show.

Visit us at www.bobkatzenshow.com THE HOUSE AND SENATE: Beacon Hill Roll Call records local senators’ votes on roll calls from the week of May 24-28. All Senate roll calls are on proposed amendments to the $47.72 billion fiscal 2022 budget. There were no roll calls in the House last week. This was the Senate’s second state budget in the COVID-19 era and most senators participated virtually from their homes or offices. Of the 923 amendments filed by senators only 15 came to a roll call vote. Many others 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 all 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 filling 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 predetermined earlier behind closed doors. “The efficient Senate budget process this year reflected lots of careful work by our Ways and Means Chair, Michael Rodriques, and our Senate President, Karen Spilka, to build consensus in the weeks before the budget,” said Senate President Pro Tempore Sen. Will Brownsberger (D-Belmont). Despite repeated requests from Beacon Hill Roll Call, Senate President Karen Spilka’s office did not respond to a request to comment on the bundled amendments and the small number of roll calls. And no response was received from Spilka’s leadership team of Sens. Cindy Creem (D-Newton), Joan Lovely (D-Salem), Mike Barrett (D-Lexington) and Sal DiDomenico (D-Everett). “Roll call requests are based on a number of factors that are the subject of both continuing and contemporaneous discussions within the caucus based on specific issues,” said GOP Minority Leader Bruce Tarr (R-North Reading). “[The process] more accurately highlights the increasingly efficient use of the legislative rubber stamp,” said Chip Ford, executive director of Citizens for Limited Taxation. “Massachusetts doesn’t need the cost of 200 legislators when a handful decide all legislation before it comes for a vote. If the three token ‘loyal opposition’ Republican senators weren’t taking up space taxpayers could at least save the ‘leadership stipends’ they collect.” “This type of process was not the norm only several years ago,” said Massachusetts Fiscal Alliance executive director Paul Craney. “Over the last few years, with new legislative leadership, they rush through votes, often don’t record the votes and don’t allow the public to gain access to what is happening because most of the important work is done behind closed doors. With that being said, the state Senate is much more transparent than Speaker Ron Mariano and Republican Brad Jones in the House. The House is arguably the most opaque legislature in America.” $47.72 BILLION FISCAL 2022 BUDGET (S 3) Senate 40-0, approved a $47.72 million fiscal 2022 state budget for the fiscal year that begins July 1, 2021. Senators added on an additional $63.7 million in spending during three days of debate on the Senate floor. The House recently approved its own version of the budget. A House-Senate conference committee will hammer out a compromise version. “This is an extraordinarily hopeful budget, designed to get us ‘back to better,’” said Senate President Karen Spilka (D-Ashland). “The Massachusetts Senate vowed to act on what we learned from the COVID-19 public health crisis and invest in areas that lift up our children, families and seniors across all communities — and that is exactly what this budget does.” Mike Rodrigues (D-Westport), Chair of the Senate Committee on Ways and Means said, “The Senate has charted a hopeful path forward this week and passed a fiscally responsible fiscal Year 2022 budget that makes investments to expand educational opportunity, safeguard the health and wellness of our most vulnerable, support our children and families and meet the needs of our post-pandemic economy. “The budget that we passed today focuses on the future and ensures that every resident, business, and family can find success in a post-pandemic Massachusetts,” said Sen. Patrick O’Connor (R-Weymouth), Ranking Minority Member of the Senate Committee on Ways and Means. “The past year has been difficult for so many, and this budget strives to put in place programs designed to recover from the effects of COVID-19. Now is the time for us to rebuild and make the commonwealth an even better place to call home.” (A “Yes” vote is for the budget). Sen. Brendan Crighton Yes TAX DEDUCTION FOR REMOTE LEARNING SUPPLIES (S 3) Senate 5-34, rejected an amendment that would provide up to a $500 tax deduction for any K-12 teachers’ expenses they paid for the costs of remote teaching their students. Eligible expenses include professional development courses taken related to the curriculum, books, supplies, computer equipment and for personal protective equipment, disinfectant and other supplies used for the prevention of the spread of COVID-19. Amendment supporters said it is unfair that teachers have to personally pay from their own pockets to cover for these costs. He noted that a recent survey showed that teachers spent an average of $745 was spent of their own money on learning materials. Amendment opponents said they support reimbursing these teachers but argued a tax deduction is not the best way to do it. They noted the state should use some of the billions of dollars in federal funds it receives under the Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief Fund and directly reimburse the teachers. (A “Yes” vote is for the amendment allowing a $500 deduction. A “No” vote is against it.) Sen. Brendan Crighton No ALLOW FARMERS A TAX DEDUCTION FOR DONATING FOOD (S 3) Senate 6-33, rejected an amendment that would give a taxpayer who is in the trade or business of farming and makes a charitable contribution of food to a nonprofit food organization a deduction on their income tax return for up to 25 percent of the value of the food. The amendment also regulates the contributions and sets standards that the food quality must meet. Amendment supporters said the deduction will help these generous farmers and the charities. They noted that the federal government and several states already allow this deduction. Amendment opponents said the state cannot afford the revenue loss in a budget that is tight and still relies on money from the Rainy Day Fund. They noted the budget delays the implementation of the overall charitable deduction that was discontinued in 2001 and argued it is not time to pick and choose a specific group of taxpayers who will receive a charitable deduction. (A “Yes” vote is for the amendment allowing the charitable deduction for farmers. A “No” vote is against it.) Sen. Brendan Crighton No ADDITIONAL $3 MILLION FOR LOCAL BOARDS OF HEALTH (S 3) Senate 39-0, approved an amendment increasing funding for local boards of health by $3 million (from $10 million to $13 million). Amendment supporters said that these grants will improve public health protections across the state by strengthening local capacity and supporting sharing of services among cities and towns. “The pandemic made clear what has long been true: Protecting our health requires strengthening investments at the local level,” said sponsor Sen. Jo Comerford (D-Northampton). “In our commonwealth, every municipality has their own board of health or health department. These funds will decrease inequities between communities and promote better health for everyone.” (A “Yes” vote is for the $3 million increase in funding). Sen. Brendan Crighton Yes ADDITIONAL $508,419 FOR DOMESTIC VIOLENCE PREVENTION AND SURVIVOR SERVICES (S 3) Senate 39-0, approved an amendment increasing funding for Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Prevention and Survivor Services by $508,419 (from $50,874,714 to $50,366,295). “What many people don’t realize is that a consequence of the pandemic has been a significant increase in instances of domestic abuse,” said sponsor Sen. Mike Moore (D-Millbury). “As a result, there has been an increase in individuals seeking services provided by the Executive Office of Health and Human Services. It is critical that we provide more funding for these services so that access to care remains available for survivors of domestic abuse and sexual assault in the commonwealth.” (A “Yes” vote is for the $508,419 increase in funding). Sen. Brendan Crighton Yes $500,000 TO IMPROVE MATERNAL AND NEWBORN HEALTH OUTCOMES (S 3) Senate 38-1, approved an amendment that would provide $500,000 for the Perinatal-Neonatal Quality Improvement Network (PNQIN) of Massachusetts that works with hospitals and maternal health organizations to eliminate disparities in maternal morbidity and mortality. “I filed [the] amendment … to provide funding to PNQIN because I believe that it is every person’s right to build a happy and healthy family in the commonwealth of Massachusetts,” said amendment sponsor Sen. Harriette Chandler (D-Worcester). “An essential element of PNQIN’s mission is to fight and eliminate long standing racial disparities in maternal mortality and to improve health outcomes of all pregnant people and their children. PNQIN is at the forefront of maternal health equity, and their work will unequivocally bring us closer to a commonwealth full of happy and healthy parents and children.” “I have a strong belief that the practice of earmarking funds for private organizations within the budget leads to more harm than good in our political system,” said Sen. Sonia Chang-Diaz, the only senator to vote against the amendment. “Although the PNQIN does important work, and I appreciate Sen. Chandler’s championing of this worthy cause, I believe government works better when the Legislature sticks to its role of setting categories of funding priorities, and I respect the executive branch agencies’ responsibility to make comparisons among projects and service providers to choose the organizations that best carry out those priorities. As such, I have a policy of voting against earmarks when it comes to setting budget priorities.” (A “Yes” vote is for the $500,000. A “No” vote is against it.) Sen. Brendan Crighton Yes ADDITIONAL $500,000 FOR SECURITY FOR SCHOOLS AND HOUSES OF WORSHIP (S 9) Senate 39-0, approved an amendment increasing funding by $500,000 (from $1 million to $1.5 million) for security and enhancements for at-risk houses of worship, schools, community centers and other nonprofit institutions. This includes the installation of security cameras, enhanced lighting, ballistic doors and bulletproof windows, rapid response alarms, perimeter fencing, motion detectors and vehicle blockades. “We are in the middle of a pandemic of hate and violence, and it’s growing at alarming rates,” said sponsor Sen. Eric Lesser (D-Longmeadow). This year alone, there was the attempted bombing at Ruth’s House, a Jewish-affiliated assisted living facility in Longmeadow, and in the months that followed, a rapid rise in Anti-Asian hate crimes. We have an obligation as a commonwealth to make sure that we have the resources to put these basic precautions in place for these community groups and organizations.” (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. 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.

THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, JUNE 4, 2021 Page 19 SPIRIT | FROM PAGE 6 health issues kept DiMare in the hospital recently, and a group of family members attended this year’s Memorial Day Ceremony and were among more than 400 who turned out to honor Saugus’s fallen heroes. “When I left the cemetery, we headed into Tufts hospital and told my father about the morning’s ceremony,” said DiMare’s daughter, Charlene Costa of Westford. “I thought he would have been disappointed because he wasn’t able to make it. He was very excited that the ceremony took place. He didn’t want it to be canceled. We told him all about the band held onto one of the bricks with her dad’s name inscribed on it, which will be among the next installed in the walkway of Saugus Veterans Memorial Park. “The best thing you can say about Charlie DiMare is he’s always involved and age doesn’t hold him back on anything,” Castinetti said in an interview. “It does not have to be just Bella and Charlie DiMare (Courtesy photo to The Saugus Advocate) brick being honored in his name,” she said. Costa, who was joined by her mother, Bella, and husband, Stephen, made a video for her dad with her cell phone while her husDAV events. He’s for all veterans’ events. And he’s always there at Saugus veterans’ events. He’s always at Founders Day with us,” Castinetti said. “The Veterans Council does a booth and Charlie is always there. He is outgoing, friendly, selling raffle tickets and challenge coins – whatever he can do to help the veterans.” Vietnam War Veteran Richie Christopher, a former Saugus resident who lived in town for 42 years, called DiMare “a dedicated friend” and “the most loyal guy I know.” “He’s loyal not only to the disabled vets – but all the vets,” said Christopher, a 69-yearold Marine veteran. “He is the kind of guy who would go to a hospital to see a vet or get involved to help raise money for a veterans’ cause. If you needed him, he’s the type of guy who would show up if called. He carried the American flag to all our parades in the last three years,” Christopher said. “Charlie was always there for me. He’s been family to me and my family for over 50 years.” Statewide efforts begin to enforce fireworks regulations S tate Fire Marshal Peter Ostroskey and State Police Colonel Christopher Mason recently announced that fireworks enforcement efforts have started. The State Police Bomb Squad is part of the Fire and Explosion Investigation Unit (F&EIU) assigned to the Office of the State Fire Marshal, which has already started working with local police and fire departments to enforce the fireworks laws and intercept fireworks being brought into the state illegally. “It is illegal to bring fireworks into Massachusetts, even if they were legally purchased elsewhere,” said Ostroskey. In communities throughout the Commonwealth, there has been a significant rise in resident complaints regarding fireworks. The State Police Bomb Squad had a 63 percent increase in response to fireworks calls in 2020 over 2019. During the F&EIU 2020 fireworks enforcement operation, there were 47 criminal summonses issued over a four-day period. This year’s enforcement operation has already started and will last longer. “In addition to special enforcement efforts to intercept fireworks coming into Massachusetts, troopers and local police will seize illegal fireworks they find during routine traffic stops,” said Mason. “We don’t want a repeat of the huge increase in resident complaints we experienced last year.” “There will be supervised displays of fireworks this year unlike last year, so we encourage you to leave the fireworks to the professionals,” said Ostroskey. “Fireworks are illegal because they are dangerous. Fires started by fireworks in Massachusetts increased 180 percent in 2020 from 2019.” In the past decade, there have been 941 major fire and explosion incidents involving illegal fireworks reported to the Massachusetts Fire Incident Reporting System. The incidents caused 12 civilian injuries, 42 fire service injuries and an estimated monetary loss of $2.1 million, which is high considering that most fireworks fires are outdoor brush fires. Additionally, 32 people were treated at Massachusetts emergency rooms for severe burn injuries from fireworks (burns covering more than five percent of the body) according to the Massachusetts Burn Injury Reporting System. This does not include visits to hospital emergency rooms for eye injuries, amputations, puncture wounds or smaller burns. Forty-one percent of fireworks-related burn injuries reported by hospitals to the Office of the State Fire Marshal in the last 10 years were to children under age 18; 26 percent were to children under age 10.

Page 20 THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, JUNE 4, 2021 LETTER TO THE EDITOR Governor owes Francisco Ureña an apology Dear Editor: Veterans Assisting Veterans is a volunteer nonprofi t organization. We note that The Boston Globe Spotlight team’s recent article vindicates the former Massachusetts Secretary of Veterans’ Services Francisco Ureña, regarding his role at the Holyoke Soldiers’ Home, where 76 elderly veterans died from the COVID-19 outbreak. Ureña, a decorated American war hero, dedicated public servant and dedicated veterans advocate, was wrongfully summoned to the State House to resign last year. Ureña was used as a scapegoat for the protection of the Baker Administration. As a result, his resignation caused severe damage to his reputation and livelihood. The Board of Directors of Veterans Assisting Veterans fi nds no better time than now to demand that Governor Baker issue a public apology to Ureña. We call upon the people and veterans of Massachusetts to directly contact the governor and his administration and demand this public apology. The deaths of veterans at the Holyoke Soldiers’ Home are tragic and could have been avoided had the governor favored professionalism and skills in his choice to oversee the facility rather than political patronage and nepotism.

Benefits may include monthly ordinary benefits and/ or payment/reimbursement for medical expenses. Whether you are laid off, in transition or living on a fixed income, the program is designed to provide short-term or long-term assistance as needed to provide relief. The program is overseen by the Massachusetts Department of Veterans’ Services (DVS), which runs the program in partnership with local VSOs. Every town or district in Massachusetts has a VSO. VSOs assist Veterans and their dependents in learning about, applying for and receiving Chapter 115 benefits. VSOs can also help you in applying for other benefits and connecting with local resources. Your local VSO handles applications, obtains program approval from DVS and provides local benefits. The program is funded by a combination of state and local funds. DVS pays for 75% of the approved benefits and your city or town pays for 25%. There are income and asset limits for the program. As a general rule, income and asset requirements are: Family of 1 – monthly income less than $2,081and an asset limit of $,5000. Family of 2 – monthly income less than $2,818 and an asset limit of $9,800. To determine if you may be eligible for financial assistance through the Chapter 115 program, visit the following link and follow the instructions – https:// massvetben.org/ – or call your local VSO for more information. The VSOs are also able to help Veterans apply for Federal VA benefits and local benefits and provide food assistance monthly. For example, did you know that if you own a home and have a VA service–connected disability, you are eligible for a partial or full exemption of your property taxes? “Please contact your local Veterans’ Service Officer for more information on any of the services mentioned. We are all here to assist. We are regularly checking voicemails and emails as we continue to work remotely and in our offices throughout COVID-19.” Melrose: Karen Burke, 781-9794186, kburke@cityofmelrose.org.

Got an idea, passing thought or gripe you would like to share with The Saugus Advocate? I’m always interested in your feedback. It’s been over five years since I began work at The Saugus Advocate. I’m always interested in hearing readers’ suggestions for possible stories or good candidates for “The Advocate Asks” interview of the week. Feel free to email me at mvoge@comcast.net. Do you have some interesting views on an issue that you want to express to the community? Submit your idea. If I like it, we can meet for a 15- to 20-minute interview over a hot drink at a local coffee shop. And I’ll buy the coffee or tea. Or, if you prefer to continue practicing social distancing and be interviewed from the safety of your home on the phone or via email, I will provide that option to you as the nation recovers from the Coronavirus crisis. If it’s a nice day, my preferred site for a coffee and interview would be the picnic area of the Saugus Iron Works.
