Meimaris, 56, was born in Athens, Greece, and moved to the United States in 1975. His family settled in Melrose, where he graduated from Melrose High School in 1982. In 1984 he received his associate’s degree in graphic arts from N.H. Vocational-Technical College in Laconia, N.H. He has worked in the computer and computer security field since graduating. He has lived in Saugus since 1997. He and his wife, Rahel, have been married for 10 years. They have a 15-yearold daughter, Barbara, and a bluefronted Amazon parrot named Marty. Meimaris has been a member of the Saugus Lions Club for six years and was installed as club president earlier this month. Highlights of his interview follow. Q: Why did you get involved with the Lions Club? A: I got involved almost six years ago, and I like the Lions Club because 100 percent of the donations that we collect go to either eye research or any other charitable organization throughout Saugus and any other town – also visual aids, which support individPublished Every Friday 781-233-4446 Friday, June 21, 2019 State Rep.

Not for Saugus school custodians, whose jobs were eliminated to provide funding for the superintendent’s new education plan By Mark E. Vogler A t one point during a community-wide campaign in the spring of 2017, Saugus Public School custodians were welcomed into the fold as supporters for a new Saugus Middle-High School. They joined educators, parents, children and town officials in pursuit of a state-of-the-art school that would be the centerpiece of Saugus’s proposed “21st Century Education Plan.” There was less than 25 percent turnout of registered voters. But more than 70 percent of the nearly 5,000 voters who went to the polls favored a new $160.7 million MiddleHigh School built to accommodate 1,360 students in grades 6 through 12. “Having three children and living in town, I was supportive of a new Middle/High School,” Michael Mabee recalled yesterday. Indeed, he and the other custodians felt part of a campaign called “One Town, One Team.” But Mabee and his 20 colleagues were feeling left out this week as Saugus Public Schools Superintendent Dr. David DeRuosi, Jr. issued notices to Mabee and his colONE TEAM | SEE PAGE 4 ~ Home of the Week ~ SAUGUS...Perfectly located 6 room dormered Cape Cod style home offers 3 bedrooms, 1 1/2 baths, spacious living room with fireplace with wood stove insert, eat-in kitchen with newer appliances open to formal dining room, desirable 1st floor bedrooms, hardwood flooring, second level offers king-size master bedroom with his ‘n’ her closets, additional front-to-back bedroom and half bath, large deck for summer enjoyment overlooking level yard with brick patio and rose stone retaining wall, one car garage under, located just outside of Saugus Center in desirable Lynnhurst neighborhood.

Page 2 THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, June 21, 2019 Special Town Meeting Monday Members will consider nonbinding resolution opposing privatization of custodians, new rules for resolutions By Mark E. Vogler he 21 Saugus Public School custodians who will lose their jobs at the end of the month – and their supporters – may consider Monday’s Special Town Meeting too late to influence the school officials who decided to replace them a private company. But for Corinne Riley, a forT mer School Committee member who introduced an article providing for a nonbinding resolution to oppose privatization, protecting freedom of speech on the floor of Town Meeting is what Monday night is primarily about. She spearheaded the signature drive for the two articles that Town Meeting members will consider when they convene at 7:30 p.m. on Monday in the second floor auditorium of Saugus Town Hall: Provided there’s a quorum of 26 of the 50 members, Town Meeting will vote on “A Resolution Opposing the Privatization of Saugus School Maintenance and Custodians.” The second article that Town Meeting members will consider seeks to add a new section to the Town of Saugus Bylaws that would provide a procedure for Town Meeting members to introduce nonbinding resolutions. “These petitions came about We Carry... * Lifetime Waterproof Warranty * Ceramic, Porcelain & Stone Tile * Hardwood Prefinished and Unfinished, Do-it-Yourselfer Products!

Both parishes are in Saugus. after Town Meeting member Ron Wallace (of Precinct 5) was silenced by the Town Moderator at the May 20 meeting,” Riley told The Saugus Advocate in an interview last month. “Mr. Wallace attempted to present a nonbinding resolution in support of the school custodians, but was informed he could not present his resolution because it was not on the Warrant,” she said. Here are the two articles to be considered: • Whereas the Representatives in Town Meeting, here assembled, are the appropriating body in Saugus Town Government and are ultimately responsible for the expenditures of taxpayers monies; Whereas the Saugus School Committee is considering the privatization of custodial services in Saugus Public Schools and such an action would remove tax payer control and governmental accountability over the cleaning and maintenance of the town’s school buildings; Whereas eliminating the current custodial positions and replacing them with a private company would make our schools more susceptible to theft, reduce the quality of services delivered to our students, and replace loyal, hardworking, and dedicated employees with transient workers being paid at the poverty level; Whereas seventeen of the aforementioned custodians, currently working in Saugus Public Schools, are residents of the town of Saugus and the average term of service of the custodial staff is equal to or greater than 17 years and; Whereas there is overwhelming public support for the custodians from parents, community leaders, school personnel, taxpayers, and residents; now, therefore, be it Resolved, the Representatives in Town Meeting, here assembled, encourage the members of the Saugus School Committee to reject the idea of privatization of the custodial services in Saugus Public Schools and negotiate with our custodial staff with a fair contract that is in the best interest of the students and taxpayers of Saugus. • To add a new section 214.00 MEETING | SEE PAGE 3 The LIFT is underway at St. Margaret’s Church

THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, June 21, 2019 Page 3 Public business in secrecy School Committee’s vote to replace custodians violated state Open Meeting Law, newspaper alleges T he Saugus School Committee and Saugus Public Schools Superintendent Dr. David DeRuosi, Jr. made a decision behind closed doors to replace 21 school custodians, The Saugus Advocate alleged this week in an Open Meeting Law (OML) complaint against the committee and DeRuosi. The Committee intended to meet in an Executive Session on May 8 “for the purpose of Collective Bargaining with the Custodians and The Superintendent’s Contract,” according to the agenda notice posted for the meeting. Instead, a discussion involving the committee and DeRuosi focused on how the School Department could save money by privatizing custodial services and, apparently, some kind of vote was taken which led to the hiring of a company – a vote that was not ratified in public, according to two School Committee members interviewed by The Advocate and emails they made available to the newspaper which they claim support their contention that the decision was flawed. “This complaint is in response to what we believe are multiple violations of the state Open Meeting Law that began during an Executive Session of the Saugus School Committee on May 8, 2019, and didn’t become reasonably discoverable to The Saugus Advocate and the public until June 12, 2019, when we received emails about the meeting in question from School Committee Vice Chair Elizabeth Marchese and School Committee Member Lisa Morgante,” Saugus Advocate Editor Mark E. Vogler wrote in the complaint he filed on Monday. “Based on a review of copies of the emails that were provided to us and interviews with Ms. Marchese and Ms. Morgante, we believe that decisions were done in private to hire a company to replace 21 custoMEETING | from page 2 to the Town of Saugus Bylaws in subcategory 200 of “Government of Town Meeting” that will be titled “Resolutions.” Any Town Meeting member may propose a non-binding resolution, with 48 hours written or electronic notice to the Saugus Town Clerk not counting weekends and holidays. The Saugus Town Clerk will promptly notify the Moderator upon receipt of said resolution and forward said resolution to Town Meeting Members. Resolutions may not seek dians who work in the Saugus Public Schools,” Vogler alleged. “Decisions to hire the company to replace the custodians should have been discussed in public, with the respective votes taken. This was not done.” A list of the alleged violations The complaint alleged these violations: 1) The School Committee convened in Executive Session without a proper statutory purpose stated on the agenda notice for what was discussed and apparently voted on. 2) Public business was conducted behind closed doors. There should have been public discussion and action taken in public if the School Committee and the superintendent wanted to replace the 21 school custodians with a private company. There was no public discussion, no public vote and no public announcement about this. 3) Failure to take minutes about these decisions. Ms. Marchese said the secretary who normally takes the minutes was not available for the May 8 Executive Session. She also said she made a request that the meeting be tape-recorded, but that was denied. And more than a month after the Executive Session, she said minutes do not exist for the meeting and that her requests for the minutes have gone unanswered. “It appears that the School Committee along with the superintendent took action following the May 8 Executive Session which led to the hiring of a private company to replace the custodians,” Vogler said in the complaint filed with DeRuosi and members of the School Committee. “This public business took place behind closed doors. And this School Committee action took place without an agenda to appropriate funds, propose zoning or general bylaw changes or have any binding effect on the operation of town government. Resolutions will not be considered as actions of the Town Meeting as defined by MGL Ch. 39 S10 but rather statements of opinion in accordance with past practice. Resolutions will be acted upon during the next Town Meeting or within a Town Meeting that is temporarily adjourned, whichever comes first. A majority vote of the quorum will be required to adopt a resolution. notice that stated a proper statutory purpose,” he wrote. The School Committee has 14 business days to meet and review the complaint and must respond to the complaint in writing, sending a copy of the complaint along with a description of any action taken to address it to the state Attorney General’s Division of Open Government. The committee must also send the newspaper a copy of its response. If the newspaper is not satisfied with the School Committee’s response, it can file a copy of its complaint with the Division of Open Government. “The action taken should be invalidated” As a remedy to his complaint, Vogler wrote that he believed the School Committee “should acknowledge that the May 8 Executive Session was not conducted properly and that the process to replace the 21 custodians with a private company was flawed.” “The action taken should be invalidated,” he continued. “The School Committee should schedule another meeting to discuss and take a public vote on the issue of privatizing school custodial services and the proposal to replace the school custodians with a private company.” Vogler also suggested that the committee should request OML training.

This vision and the school district’s plan will help transform the way education is valued within this community,” he wrote. DeRuosi noted that his “comprehensive plan has been made possible by prioritizing and focusing available resources, including through the redistribution of labor and operations of custodial services within the school district as considered, analyzed, and determined by the School Committee.” “It is estimated that this reallocation of resources could provide potential overall cost savings of an estimated $1.1-million dollars annually, from operational and related efficiencies gained. In addition, the unfunded Other Post-Employment Benefits (OPEB) associated with in-house custodians is currently estimated at a $5-million liability. This is more than $1-million in estimated savings of Saugus taxpayers’ dollars which are being used to improve the education and performance of our students. Parents and taxpayers alike should be pleased,” DeRuosi wrote. “The School Department is making these decisions, through this sometimes-challenging period of reconfiguration, in the best interests of the students of Saugus. The primary goal of the School Department is to work towards these necessary performance alignments and achievements that reflect the character and priorities of this community.” DeRuosi’s plan cites the following components: • The implementation of a new digital literacy curriculum with new trained digital literacy teachers at all elementary schools to focus on coding and to enhance and expand Robotics Enrichment as part of an effort to embrace science and technology. • Curriculum coordinators will be brought in by the School Department to provide curriculum support at all grade levels. • Curriculum coordinators at the Middle and High School levels will be increased to create pathways and provide additional support around curriculum development and planning. • The School Department will restore world language in the Middle School to provide students with the critical diverse communication tools needed to prepare for higher education or to enter the workforce. • School officials are also researching the possibility of introducing world language exposure at the elementary level.

RoseLee Vincent presents SAVE board members with a citation from the state House of Representatives. By Mark E. Vogler resh off its success of getting the Annual Town Meeting to pass a single-use plastic bag ban and a ban on No. 6 Styrofoam food containers, the Saugus Action Volunteers for the Environment (SAVE) “should keep doing what you did,” the guest speaker told members at its 46th Annual Meeting and Dinner on Wednesday night. F “There are not a lot of towns in the Commonwealth who have managed to do both,” said John Hite, the zero waste pilot coordinator for the Conservation Law Foundation, noting the rarity of SAVE’s success. Hite congratulated SAVE for its success on the two initiatives and encouraged members to pursue other projects in pursuit of the lofty goal of zero waste. “Yes, we can get to zero waste. We can get all the way there,” Hite said. He suggested that it’s all about looking at the plastic soda bottles, tin cans and toilet paper rolls and figuring out how to reduce, recycle and reuse items so they are less a part of the waste stream. “There’s a lot of stuff in our lives that’s unnecessary,” he noted. While waste reduction involves a global effort, local groups like SAVE can make a difference in their own communities, like using recyclable water bottles or coffee cups. SAVE could encourage the town’s Department of PubGuest speaker John Hite of the Conservation Law Foundation encouraged SAVE “to keep doing what you’re doing,” praising the group for success at Town Meeting in passing two environmental initiatives. lic Works to set up a curbside community composting project. And any individual could do composting in their backyard. “You should keep doing what you did with the bag ban and Styrofoam ban,” he said. SAVE President Ann Devlin said Hite was the ideal speaker for this year’s Annual Meeting and Dinner. “In light of our recent achievement at Town Meeting in passing the two bans, we thought it was fitting that tonight’s speaker focused on Zero Waste – what it means, is attainable and how to get there,” Devlin said. “We look forward to the year ahead and encourage your participation in whatever way you are able. What we are able to accomplish is dependent on our numbers and our combined strengths,” she said.

Vincent received a hug and a bouquet of flowers prepared by the Saugus Garden Club, which created a bunch of floral arrangements for the occasion – all of them raffled off at the end of the evening.

Aside from the golf, everyone was there in memory of this incinerator and unlined landfill that was supposed to close in 1996 is still operating – over 20 years later,” she said. “Especially given that the landfill and incineration are in the midst of the Rumney Marsh, a precious natural gem in Saugus and Revere and an Area of Critical Environmental Concern,” she said. “If that wasn’t bad enough, the landfill abuts both the Pines and the Saugus Rivers, which empty into America’s First Public Beach … and sits directly across the river, less than a half mile, from the homes of hundreds of people,” she said. Vincent briefed the SAVE gathering on current efforts to appeal the state Department of Environmental Protection’s decision to grant Wheelabrator its permit to expand its ash landfill without input from the town’s Board of Health. At the end of speech, Vincent presented SAVE with a special citation from the state House of Representatives which recognized SAVE’s commitment to advocating for a better environment for the residents of Saugus, especially with regard to the group’s efforts to fight against the expansion of the unlined Saugus ash landfill.

O n Saturday, June 15, six high school students from Saugus, Revere, Danvers, Ipswich, Hamilton-Wenham and North Reading were awarded scholarships at the annual reception at the Officer Vitale Memorial Park on Ballard Street in Saugus. “You couldn’t have asked for a better day,” said Les Vitale, brother of the late officer. “The weather was perfect, and it was a great day to start Father’s Day weekend.

I like to listen to my family and his coworkers tell stories about him; even though he was killed just before I was born, I really feel like I knew him.” “From what I hear, everyone says he was ‘the best,’” said Nick. “We got to learn all about what ‘Vitale Pride’ is. My uncles always tell us he’s the one who coined that phrase – that’s awesome!” Bob Vitale, a retired Transit Police Officer and brother of the late Officer, said, “It’s always great to see a few of the veteran active members of the Department who remain on the job and some of the retirees come to the Park to enjoy this with us, but it’s really great to see so many of the younger guys show up to pay their respects. These guys don’t forget. A lot of the children of the officers have received scholarships, and this year will be more of the same.” “It’s not an exaggeration to In House Dental Plan for $399 (Cleanings, X-Rays, Exams twice a year and 20% OFF Dental work) Schedule your FREE Consultations today say there’s not a day that goes by that I don’t think of him,” said his brother Dick Vitale. “He had that kind of impact on me. You could depend on him for anything, anytime, anywhere, no questions asked.” Eileen Vitale, wife of the late officer, remarked, “June 18 is always a tough day for me, always has been, always will be. I love that we still host the park reception and the annual golf tournament. It’s a great, proud way to keep Harold’s memory alive. Our charity work allows us to continue supporting victim advocacy organizations (National Concerns of Police Survivors [C.O.P.S.]), N.E. C.O.P.S. and the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund (NLEOMF), amazing organizations who reached out to help us back in 1985. When you’re down and not sure where to turn for help, they suddenly appear out of nowhere and help you learn how to cope. Doing all of this is really important to us and we continue to make an impact.” The Officer Vitale Memorial Fund, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) organization and was created in 1992 some seven years after Officer Vitale’s death. In the early morning hours of June 18, 1985, Officer Vitale was killed in the line of duty while attempting to make an arrest – he was dragged over 1,000 feet to his death. Officer Vitale was 42 at the time and married to Eileen; he lived in Ipswich with three children: Paul, Michelle and JacLyn. Officer Vitale’s badge #17 was retired upon his death. Officer Vitale Memorial Park was constructed by the Town of Saugus in 1992 in his honor. The Memorial Fund will be hosting its annual Golf Tournament on Monday, Aug. 5, 2019, at noon at Ipswich Country Club. Information submitted by Officer Harold L. Vitale Memorial Fund, Inc.

Page 10 THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, June 21, 2019 Post 10 Seniors drop to 0-3 after loss at Danvers By Greg Phipps T hrough three contests, the Saugus Post 10 Senior Legion team had put up a threespot offensively in each of those contests. Unfortunately, 31 runs had come across for the opponents, leaving Saugus still searching for its first win of the 2019 season. Monday’s game at Twi Field in Danvers started out promisingly for Post 10, as Saugus broke out for three runs in the top of the first. But that would be all the scoring it would muster, as Danvers starter Brendan Trohon settled down and gave up just three hits the remainder of the game in an eventual 8-3 win for the home team. The first four Saugus hitters reached base to begin the game. Matthew McDonough doubled, Daniel Gillis walked, Carrieri reached on an infield single that drove in a run and Reed belted an RBI hit. Casaletto later aided his own cause with an RBI single to up the short-lived advantage to 3-0. Meanwhile, Post 10 starter Jason Casaletto navigated his way unscathed through the first two innings.

A bunt single, a hit batsman, a double and another single led to the threerun outburst and a 4-3 Danvers edge. Post 10’s only good opportunity to add more came in the top of the third. Greg Reed, who went 3-for-3, doubled after Christian Carrieri had walked to lead off. Saugus eventually left the bases loaded and never seriously threatened again.

At the event were Paul Mantell, Vice President of Human Resources and Leadership Development at YMCA Metro North.When asked what it meant for the YMCA, Mantell said “This is the definition of what community partnership is all about.” “Community partnership helps everybody in the community.So when you have an organization like the YMCA, which is for everybody and an organization like Paces which is a real pillar in the community…it means everything” Mantell added. Kathleen Walsh, CEO of YMCA Metro North, said the $20,000 that was raised will go towards a few amazing programs that the YMCA is offering.This summer alone, the Saugus YMCA will enroll over Smith with one out in the sixth. Danvers tacked on four insurance runs in the sixth with the help of four singles and three walks. Post 10 did attempt to rally in the top of the seventh. Carrieri singled, and Reed and Colin Moloney both walked. But Danvers brought in its closer with one out. He threw hard, striking out two of the three hitters he faced to close it out.

THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, June 21, 2019 Page 11 ~ North Shore Baseball League ~ Wings nail down first NSBL win By Greg Phipps H aving opened the 2019 season with five consecutive losses, the Saugus Wings earned their way into the win column with a convincing 10-1 rout of the Marblehead Seasiders in North Shore Baseball League (NSBL) action last Saturday at Seaside Park in Marblehead. The contest was decided pretty quickly. Taking advantage of several walks and some shaky play in the field by the hosts, the Wings put up nine runs in the top of the first inning. Pat O’Regan’s two-run double was the key blow. Saugus was never challenged after that, even though it only mustered one more run the rest of the way. Saturday’s affair marked the debut of Saugus High School pitching standout Todd Tringale, who didn’t disappoint. Tringale went the seven-inning distance, allowing no earned runs, three hits and three walks, Saugus baserunner Dawson Gaudet avoids the second baseman’s tag during last Saturday’s 10-1 NSBL win at Marblehead. and fanning 12. The effort did wonders for the Wings’ team ERA, which was hovering close to 5.00 entering the contest. Saturday’s victory also avenged an earlier 6-4 defeat to the Seasiders. Saugus entered this week at 1-5 and had been rained out two straight times. The Wings are scheduled to take on Manchester on Saturday (4 p.m.) at their home base, World Series Park, and next Tuesday (6 p.m.) against Rowley at home. So far this season, David HarSaugus’s Pat O’Regan connects for a two-run double in the first inning of last Saturday’s victory. ris leads the team in hitting at .444 with eight hits and a home run. The only other players hitting .300 or better are Dawson Gaudet and Mike Mabee (both at .333) and O’Regan (.300). It had been a rocky go for the Wings before the Marblehead win. They had been outscored 43-9 in the five previous losses. As of Tuesday, they stood in a three-way tie for last in the standings. The firstplace Kingston Night Owls, the defending league champions, were 7-1 and the Peabody Champions and Swampscott Sox shared second place at 5-1.

Page 14 THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, June 21, 2019 A: There are, but like I said, when I looked at the Lions Club, what I really liked was that they give back 100 percent of what they collect. Some other organizations might use some of that money to run their organization or they might keep a little bit of it – a certain percentage for the club. In the Lions Club, we do have two different funds and we pay our monthly dues, which are to support the dinners that we have at meetings. But anything that we actually collect from individuals around town when we do our events, that goes in a different fund that gets donated 100 percent. Q: You meet weekly? A: The meetings are twice a month: the first Wednesday and the third Wednesday of each month. We meet at Prince Pizza on Route 1 (southbound lane) at 6 o’clock at night, so usually it’s a two-hour meeting – 6 to 8. All individuals are welcome to come to a meeting even if they are not part of the Lions Club, so they can at least see and get some information about the club. Q: The Lions Club has the Annual Thanksgiving football dinner for the seniors of Saugus High and Peabody, which I enjoy going to. A: Yeah, we do the Thanksgiving Football banquet for the seniors of both teams. Last year we also had the girls’ soccer team from Saugus that we hosted. Q: What’s the most interesting thing … you belong to an organization that’s been 90 years in Saugus, so what is the most interesting thing that you know about the organization as it exists in Saugus? A: Well, the most interesting thing was when Helen Keller gave her speech back in Chicago and challenged the Lions Club to be “Knights of the Blind” and to get rid of blindness throughout the world. Q: But as far as Saugus goes, what’s the most interesting thing you know about your organization locally? A: That they have been around for 90 years and that they’ve had a lot of different events that they ran, and they’ve been helping a lot of people throughout Saugus and the other communities. Q: Now, most of the membership is from Saugus, but you do have members from some of the neighboring communities? A: Yes. Some individuals have moved away to other towns, but most of the members are from the Saugus area. Q: And you have three guys who have a half century of more as members of your club? A: Yes. Most of the members – and we have 45 – have been in the club for over 15-plus years. Three of them are over 50 years in the club: Arthur Gustafson has been a member for 53.4 years; Ralph Carbone has been 52.7 years; and Gene Decareau has been 51.7 years. As far as age, Gene is 89, Ralph is 88 and Arthur 87. Q: That’s pretty good. A: We have some newer members who have come in this past year; we’ve had six to seven indiAward-Winning Landscaping Servicing the North Shore for over 38 Years SAUGUS LION CLUB’S FIRST FAMILY: Newly installed Saugus Lions Club President Georgio Meimaris and his wife, Rahel, hold their 15-month-old daughter Barbara after Georgio’s installation as president for 2019-2020 earlier this month.

It’s not a lot of time to pledge to the club – a few hours a month, which is not a lot of time, and there are a few times a year when we do the events, and it would be nice to have all members come out and support the events. Just like any other club around town, membership is shrinking, so it’s nice to see membership grow. That’s one of the things that I would like to see: to have individuals join the club and help out the community. Q: At one point in its heyday, there were, what, 150 to 200 members? A: Yes. There were over 200 members in the club years back, but lately, everybody is too busy to do anything or join any organizations. Like I said, it would be nice … and it’s only a few hours, too, to support your individuals and neighbors who need help. Q: What’s the best unsung good deed that you’ve heard about involving the Lions Club? I know a lot goes to eye research, but what’s the best story you have heard about – the Lions Club of Saugus doing something to help people? A: There have been a few of them – visual aids – there were a couple of things that we had given: devices to elderly people who NOW BOOKING NEW CUSTOMERS! DON’T WAIT!

And that was their passion – reading – and they cried when they received the reading devices that we donated. I was not there, but Nelson Chang is part of the club that donates the devices. You hear different stories of individuals who are happy to receive certain items. Q: And another time when the club stepped up – Gene Decareau was telling me about an elderly couple who were about to get evicted from their home many years back because they didn’t have any heat or running water because they couldn’t afford it. There were some issues there that were going to force them out of their home, but the club stepped up so they could stay in their home. A: Well, we do multiple things. We have a scholarship from money we donate to the Saugus High School – also the Northeast (Metropolitan Regional) Vocational High School. We donate to a scholarship fund that we have so a student will get the scholarship. They send us a letter telling us why they need the scholarship, and the committee will pick a student to give the scholarship to – so we do that. Most of the donations go to Mass Eye and Ear and other research institutions, also the town. If there are people who need items in the town, we also work with that. Q: I understand there is sort of an unwritten rule that the politics – that there’s no talking politics during your get-togethers? A: No politics. No religion. Q: Because at your club’s recent 90th birthday celebration a couple of Saturdays ago, it was a pretty diverse group politically, from across the spectrum. A: People come together with different ideas and thoughts [politics and religion], but they don’t discuss those at our meetings. We’re only there to put our heads together to discuss charity work and how to help our human beings, so politics and church things do not really match up. Q: Yeah, I noticed that, because you have people of all faiths and political persuasions – a range of political ideologies at that 90th birthday celebration. A: A lot of people come together. They put aside their differences that they have in other areas in town, and they just look for one thing with Lions: to help others in need. Q: So, what were the highlights of that 90th birthday celebration? What will you remember? A: The food was good; the food [by Daniella’s of Danvers] was real good. Some of the awards that they gave out – it was a nice induction of the two new members that we inducted that night. Q: And this was the first time that a blind person was inducted in the local club? A: Yes – Valerie Haven. She just became a member on our 90th Everett Aluminum 10 Everett Ave., Everett 617-389-3839 Owned & operated by the Conti family since 1958 • 57 Years! “Same name, phone number & address for family since 1958 • 61 over half a century. We must be doing something right!” •Vinyl Siding •Free Estimates •Carpentry Work •Fully Licensed •Decks •Roofing • Fully Insured • Replacement Windows www.everettaluminum.com Now’s the time to schedule those home improvement projects you’ve been dreaming about all winter! ahead. When you first get inducted, you’re asked to close your eyes and forget everything as far as sight, so you can imagine that it’s pitch black and you are not seeing anything at all, and with the help of the Lions Club and the eye research, you open your eyes and you are able to see, so we have tried to use the candle as the light that you first see when you are no longer blind. Q: Is that candle – is that part of the national organization or is that local? A: It’s part of the induction that we’ve been doing here. It goes back and forth. I think each organization or each club, I believe, does a different induction. They add things or they subtract things to make it more interesting for the members so it will be a memory for them – something they can remember; something special. Q: Does that candle get reused or is it something you take home as a memento? A: It gets reused. Q: So, that candle is the same candle that’s been used for a few inductions? A: Yep. It keeps going. Q: Do you know how many years that candle has been in use? A: No. Jeannine Gentleman has been doing inductions. She was past governor, and I don’t know how many years she’s been doing the inductions. Q: And I guess another thing for a visitor that would be striking would be the roar, and you got one guy who seems to be into that – Arthur Gustafson – because every time I’m at a Lions Club function, he seems to be the guy who does the roar. A: Yep. That’s the Saugus Lions roar. We do it before our dessert. Q: So, tell me a little bit about that. A: That’s the Saugus Lions roar; that’s what you learn when you get inducted. Q: So, there are variations of it at other clubs? A: No, actually from what I’ve seen so far in the past six years, Saugus is the only one that does the roar. Q: Oh really? So that’s something that is unique to Saugus. A: Yes. I have not seen it at any other Lions Club event in another community. Q: Wow. That’s pretty interesting. So what are some of the other traditions or customs of the Saugus club, besides the roar and the candle? A: That’s pretty much it. I haven’t been around for a long, long time. It’s pretty quiet. Q: And Lily is the mascot. Right? A: Right. Q: And that’s nationally? A: That’s nationally. Q: Now, I noticed that at each table at the 90th, there was a stuffed Lily as the centerpiece, which at the end of the night was given to the most veteran Lions Club member at each table. A: Right. It went to the longest serving member of the club seated at each table. Q: What’s the mix of men and women in the Lion’s Club? Do you know? A: In Saugus, we currently have five women out of 45 members in total. We’re getting there. Q: So, years ago, it was strictly men? A: Most of the time, yeah. From what I can remember from the club rosters that I’ve seen previously, but times are changing and more women are getting involved. Q: Now, what are your plans as “King Lion” (or president) for the next two years? What are your main goals to accomplish during presidency? A: Well, I’d like to see our membership grow. That’s the number one. Q: Do you have a target figure? A: No. Hopefully, we’ll get four or five or six people to join, but it’s tough with individuals giving their time, with family and work, but like I said, it’s only a few hours. A couple of times a year, when we do the canning event, in which we collect on the street with the cans, that’s normally from 8 in the morning till 4:30 in the afternoon, but we rotate. Normally, I’m there for the full day, so I take the Saturday and use that whole day for a canning. Also, other members are there for the whole day themselves, but it’s nice to have a rotation and to have additional people come out and do the canning. That’s twice a year. So twice a year, you’re looking at maybe eight hours of canning. That’s 16 hours a year of donated time. And the other events; we have the comedy night, the golf night. Q: And the golf ball drop? A: Yes – the golf ball drop. So those events – it’s nice for a few hours for everybody to join in. Q: So somebody goes up in a helicopter to drop the golf balls? A: Yep. Q: How does that work? A: People purchase balls on the website. They put down the numbers for the balls they purchase. All of the balls go into the buckets, and they go up in a helicopter above the golf course, and they dump all of the buckets out the door of the helicopter. Whatever ball lands in the hole or closest to the hole is the winner. Usually, there’s first, second and third prize. Q: And that’s something that the club has been doing for a number of years? A: Many years. Q: Anything else that you would like to share about the club? A: For each King Lion or president of any Lions Club is the membership of the club – without all the members participating in events and functions there is no success for the club or the president. A president can lead but without the members backing him up and supporting with ideas and suggestions the president cannot accomplish their job, or succeed with the organization mission and purpose.

Due to the advocacy and actions of our members, management has agreed to return to the bargaining table and has committed to reaching a fair contract with employees. “Management and union members will meet on June 19 and 26, with the expectation that a contract will be in place by June 26th. We are hopeful that we will achieve a fair agreement, but if a contract is not reached, union members will have the option to submit a new strike notice. Our members work hard every day to provide high quality care to residents, and we hope to reach an agreement that is reflective of their dedication and commitment.” Saugus Care and Rehabilitation Center has 80 beds and employs about 70 1199SEIU members, most of whom are of Haitian or African descent.

THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, June 21, 2019 Page 17 Wood selected to NEC all-star softball squad gus sat at 6-6 and needed a win badly - it was a triumph that turned the season in the right direction. The Sachems had dropped a close 2-1 decision to the Falcons back in April. A scoreless contest through seven frames, the Sachems rallied for two in the top of the eighth. Danvers put two runners on base in its half of the inning but Wood worked out of it. Overall, she was reached for just three hits and whiffed 10. She also went 2-for-3 at the plate. Wood was the lone Saugus player named to the all-star team. The Sachems, who finished 12-9 overall, received the NEC’s annual team Sportsmanship recognition and ended with an 8-8 record in conference play. Along with her pitching prowess, Saugus ace Caitlyn Wood also made an impact with the bat this season. By Greg Phipps O ne wonders how things would have turned out for the Saugus High School softball team if it hadn’t been for the performance of junior ace pitcher Caitlyn Wood this season. The Sachems hurler struggled at times during the first half of 2019 but returned to top form with a vengeance by helping her squad to a 6-2 regularseason finish and subsequent playoff appearance. Wood was recently named to the Northeastern Conference (NEC) South all-star team for 2019. Her efforts (12 wins) were felt both on the mound and with the bat. The Sachems’ final three games were all gems from Wood, as she tossed shutouts in the team’s last two regular season victories (12-0 over Stoneham and 6-0 over Waltham). Wood was also a hard-luck Caitlyn Wood earned 12 wins this season and will be back for her senior campaign in 2020. loser in the opening round of the Div. 2 North state tournament, when she shut down sixth-seeded Dracut through seven innings before an unearned run came across in the bottom of the eighth. That score gave Dracut a 1-0 victory and ended 11th-seeded Saugus’s season. Wood was the only Sachems hitter to reach base in the loss. One example of Wood’s lateseason contributions was her three-RBI effort against Stoneham in in the squad’s Senior Day win. She drove in all three tallies with a double. Meanwhile, she kept the visitors off the board by surrendering just two hits and striking out 10. It was more of the same when she proceeded to shut down Waltham for the team’s 12th win heading into the playoffs. Perhaps Wood’s most memorable performance was her 2-0 blanking of conference rival Danvers on May 10 when Sau~ Letter to the Editor ~ Mr. James D.

Page 18 THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, June 21, 2019 THE SOUNDS OF SAUGUS By Mark Vogler H ere are a few tidbits that you might want to know about this week in Saugus. “A Shout Out” Saugus Public Schools Superintendent David DeRuosi, Jr. with the apparent backing of the Saugus School Committee that the 21 school custodians are no longer. A private custodial company that has yet to be announced by DeRuosi or the School Committee (as of press deadline yesterday) will replace the men and women whose departure apparently has not gone over well with parents, teachers and students who will miss them. After we filed our complaint for what appears to be multiple Open Meeting Law violations Monday, we learned that union members and custodians have filed close to 10 Open Meeting Law complaints with the School Committee. Stay tuned. Meanwhile, a few readers suggested that we give a collective “Shout Out” this week to the custodians who lost their jobs. The 21 custodians who received their notices from the superintendent are Steve Raso, Bob Melanson, Wally Howard, Bill Moore, Carlos Gonzales, Mike Mabee, Lisa Dragon, Joe Tarr, Steve Meurello, Rick Nelson, Tom Lowe, Adrain Lemenager, Bob Marcinko, Dave Savary, Chris Swanson, Angela McGearge, John McBride, Joe Ferraro, Bernado Garcia, Eric Fisher and Gerry Cunio. We hear dozens of Saugus residents who appreciate the custodians’ efforts showed up at Dunkin’ Donuts on Hamilton Street this week to sign a symbolic petition to show their support. A big crowd was expected at last night’s School Committee meeting, which was past our deadline. Anyone got any ideas for people they’d like to see get a “Shout Out”? This is an opportunity for our paper’s readers to single out – in a brief mention – remarkable acts or achievements by Saugus residents. Just send an email (mvoge@comcast.net) with the mention in the subject line, “An Extra Shout Out.” No more than a paragraph. Anything longer might lend itself to a story and/or photo. Cowards and phonies It’s hard to believe that not a single person on the School Committee, in the School Department or Town Hall had the courage of their convictions to come forward and explain why privatization will be in the best interests of the citizens of Saugus. I truly respect any citizens who says “I think the best way to go – and here’s why.” But it appears that a few Town Meeting members are working behind the scenes trying to discourage or scare fellow members from attending Monday night’s Special Town Meeting. They don’t like the idea of the article initiated by Corinne Riley that would enable Town Meeting Member Ron Wallace of Precinct 5 to get up and speak in support of the custodians after getting muzzled during two nights of this year’s Annual Town Meeting. There are efforts underway by some of the pro-privatization members to keep this Special Town Meeting from getting a quorum (26 of its 50 members). Not sure when the last time a Special Town Meeting or Annual Town Meeting failed to field a quorum. If that does happen, it’s sort of a black eye for Saugus and its proud Town Meeting traditions. Stay tuned. Saugus Tree Committee Breakheart Walk Feel like a nice walk to get in your exercise? While also enjoying some nature? At 6 p.m. next Thursday (June 27), the Saugus Tree Committee will present a Tree and Forest Walk at Breakheart Reservation. The Saugus Tree Committee maintains the Saugus Tree Farm, growing trees to plant on streets and public places in town. They have also sponsored the Tree Poster Contest, in which elementary school students can win trees to be planted at their school. Meet at the Christopher P. Dunne Visitor Center on Forest Street in Saugus. This event is free and open to the public. Attendees will learn to recognize some of the great trees that make up the woods in Breakheart Reservation, one of the largest natural areas in our town. This year’s walk will take a different direction than the one offered last year, which went along the western side of the Reservation. Laura Eisener will lead the walk. She is the landscape designer at Northeast Nursery in Peabody and she teaches in the Ornamental Horticulture Program at North Shore Community College. Laura sent this information to us, along with some of her thoughts: At the start of summer, we will see many beautiful local trees in full leaf. Red Maples, several species of Oak, Birch, and Hickory, as well as White Pine can be found along Pine Tops Road. Smaller woody plants including the lacy-flowered Maple Leaf Viburnum, Common Witch Hazel, and Summersweet line the roadway. We will see a number of interesting species from the forest canopy to the plants that thrive on the woodland floor. We will also see poison ivy, and point out the clues for identifying it before brushing up against it! We will stick to the paved area to make walking easier, with gentle hills, and plan to walk from the visitors center to Pine Tops Picnic area and, if time permits, to the beach. People are welcome to walk all or part of the walk before returning the visitors’ center for light refreshments and a raffle. Proceeds from the raffle go to tree planting on streets and public places in Saugus and to the maintenance of the Tree Farm. Loose ends Hopefully, sometime this summer the town will finally get around to holding a public meeting on traffic safety concerns and targeting specific streets as candidates for speed limit reductions and various safety improvements. Dog licensing deadline Here’s a reminder from the Town Clerk Ellen J. Schena to license your dog by June 30. The late fee of $20 begins on July 1. The $20 is added on to the regular fee of $12 or $15, totaling $32 or $35. Late fees apply only to renewals and those dogs that are new to Saugus that haven’t registered, according to the discretion of the town clerk. For questions, please call the clerk at 781-231-4104. All views in good taste welcomed Back earlier in the year, a reader who doesn’t like to hear differing viewpoints on local issues called and left long, rambling messages criticizing us for having certain people as the subjects of our weekly feature, “The Advocate Asks.” As I told somebody this week, “I’ll interview whoever wants to talk to us.” We wholeheartedly support the right of citizens to speak out on issues no matter what their position is. Differing views. That’s what makes the world go round. Same thing with letters, as long they are not profane. Saugus over coffee, anyone? Back during several stints covering local political campaigning in Lawrence, I would organize neighborhood groups into several coffee klatches, where the residents would talk about major issues in their respective parts of the city. These were very popular sessions, as they would empower city voters to discuss issues on their mind and their wish lists of projects they liked to see discussed on the campaign trail. These were so successful the citizens essentially set voter agendas for City Council, School Committee and sometimes mayoral races. Do you as a Saugus resident have issues that you would like to see public officials tackle in your neighborhood in town? Would you feel comfortable sitting down with a reporter over coffee focusing on what you would like to see done town-wide or in a specific neighborhood? Get some of your friends together and let’s have some coffee as you articulate what you think should be an issue tackled by town or school officials. Nomination papers coming Town residents who are considering a run at public office in the town elections – nomination papers will be available at the Town Clerk’s Office at Town Hall on July 22.

In late January, the agency issued a determination that the committee violated the OML for keeping inadequate minutes of a March 16, 2017, executive session – allegations in a complaint filed in 2017 by then-School Committee Member Peter Manoogian. Then in late June, the AG’s Division of Open Government issued a five-page determination validating allegations in three complaints filed by The Saugus Advocate which alleged multiple OML violations. One of the findings confirmed a complaint by the newspaper of an illegal Executive Session. The School Committee met in Executive Session “without a proper statutory purpose” to discuss budget-related matters, according to state Attorney General Maura Healey’s Office. The allegations cited in The Saugus Advocate’s recent complaint are based on case law that dates back to the evolution of the OML in Massachusetts. The OML was enacted “to eliminate much of the secrecy surrounding deliberation and decisions on which public policy is based,” according to a 1978 liance. She graduated from Barre & Soul’s 200-hour yoga teacher training program. “Yoga is my passion, and has been transforming in my life. I believe that yoga is for everybody. It is your own personal exploration and journey,” Poto said.

Page 22 THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, June 21, 2019 ~ Letter-to-the-Editor ~ Replacing school custodians is not encouraging for the future of our town P rivatization of the custodians in our very town has been a hot topic in our community for quite a while. As a son of one of the custodians of course I see this as a poor decision, but my reasoning goes beyond that. I have been a student and athlete in this town for as long as I can remember. Various teachers, coaches, mentors, counselors, librarians, custodians, and many other workers of this town have taught myself and all kids the many things that make Saugus the town we love. Loyalty and pride is what keeps alumni coming back and working to better our very own community. The school we see being built for a better education for our youth, and to keep Saugus kids in Saugus instead of a ‘better option’ at a private school. So what kind of example are we setting ditching the custodians we have now for a cheaper option? All of my life Saugus has been a place I wanted to grow up in and one day raise a family here and hopefully even work for. Seeing what can happen to these loyal employees, tax payers, and community members is not encouraging for the future of our town. In a time where we are working so hard to make our town a better place, do not take these steps backwards. The custodians we have are loved throughout the town, if you ask around any school or even open Facebook you can see the support they receive because of the time, effort, and enthusiasm they put into their work. My father, Michael Mabee, grew up in this town, graduated from Saugus High School, has coached football, basketball, and baseball for the school, and youth teams in our town. He has continually put in hours of his time to give back to this town, for the love he has for this town. This past year he filled in for the Football team, when their season was in jeopardy. With little coaching staff he did everything he could to give this town a football team and even won a playoff game, something that hasn’t been done in a long time REAL ESTATE TRANSACTIONS Copyrighted material previously published in Banker & Tradesman/The Commercial Record, a weekly trade newspaper.

They all have their ties in our community that run extremely deep. Make the right decision not only for these custodians, but for the future of our town.
