WIN Waste Innovations will offer an updated host agreement for Saugus at Town Hall meeting set for next week; Cogliano suggests it could help town pay for a West Side Fire Station By Mark E. Vogler T own officials strongly support a West Side Fire Station — something they’ve been seeking for decades. The problem has always come down to money: how the town can pay to build it and then staff it. But Board of Selectmen Chair Anthony Cogliano this week identifi ed what he believes is a potential source of funding for making the muchtalked-about third fi re station a reality. “We will be working on forming a host community agreement that could fund some much needed projects THEIR PATRIOTIC CAUSE: Pictured from left to right, Kearra Bellerose and lung cancer survivor Lance Blais, of Groveland, displayed American pride after winning the 50-50 contest in last Sunday’s (July 17) American Cancer Society Relay For Life Seventh Annual Cruise Night Car Show at Fuddruckers on Route 1 North in Saugus.

I know the skeptics will never be satisfi ed, but the facility is here to stay and it’s time for Saugus to get its fair share.

REVENUE SOURCE | FROM PAGE 1 Page 2 Representatives of WIN Waste are expected to unveil their proposal for a new host agreement at a meeting set for next Wednesday (July 27) at 7 p.m. in the second-floor auditorium at Town Hall. The meeting is being hosted by THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, JULY 22, 2022 the Board of Health’s Landfill Subcommittee. “Representatives of the Company Win will be making a presentation to the committee regarding a path to the future,” Cogliano said. “The relationship between the BOH, BOS and WIN has never been better and that has come from working together, something I promised when I became Chairman of the Board in 2019,” he said. “I got back involved to make positive change and bring much needed revenue to our town. My motto has always been you get nowhere without trying and the Committee and I intend to do our very best to deliver something great to Saugus,” he said. No decision will be made by the subcommittee at Wednesday night’s meeting, but the public will be welcome to ask questions about WIN’s proposal, according to Cogliano. Subcommittee members are expected to hold another meeting at a later date to make recommendations to the Board of Health. Company is ready to respond WIN officials welcome the opportunity to explain their proposal in a public meeting hosted by Saugus. Company officials are expected to share their views on what could be included in a new host agreement related to the operation of its trash-to-energy plant and the adjacent ash landfill on Route 107. “Nothing is more important to us than our partnerships with the communities we serve,” WIN Waste Innovations Vice President of Environment James Connolly said in a statement several weeks ago, commenting on the upcoming meeting. “We look forward to continuing our discussions with the Landfill Committee on ways in which the Town can maximize the benefits of our public-private partnership with Saugus,” Connolly said. “We look forward to the opportunity to present a Host Community Agreement that is reflective of the thoughts and ideas expressed by the Landfill Committee through meaningful discussions that have occurred in public meetings over the last 18 months.” Cogliano has been active recently on Saugus social media, alluding to a possible option Saugus has for funding the construction of a West Side Firehouse. This comment appeared on a Saugus Community Facebook page: “Does anyone know what’s going on with the West Side Firehouse? I know the town spent a lot of money doing a study and it was deemed to be needed So what’s the story with it! Tagging you Anthony Cogliano because you usually know the answers.” To that, Cogliano responded with this comment on the Facebook page: “It’s my top priority. A plan will be presented in the coming weeks that could and should deliver the much needed station.” The Saugus Firefighters Local 103 cited the dialogue on its Facebook page last Saturday (July 16), calling it “The closest thing to an update on the West Side firehouse we have.” Cogliano co-chairs the Landfill Subcommittee with Board of Health Chair William Heffernan. The Board of Health, at Cogliano’s insistence, created the subcommittee in late 2020 to promote a better working relationship with WIN (formerly Wheelabrator) on issues related to the incinerator and ash landfill. Possible components of the agreement A main focus of the committee members over the past year has been the development of a new host agreement that addresses a wide range of health, safety, environmental and community issues. These are key issues that members want to see as part of the agreement: • All members agree health is most important, and company officials should verify they are doing all they can to make sure everyone is safe in Saugus and surrounding communities. • Committee would like to look into a program like Massport with Winthrop with the noise issue there. • Continued testing for the public safety, continue to work with the committee, striving as much as possible to have clean, quality air coming out of the stacks while lowering noise levels and testing what is in the ash. Water testing, especially around all three landfi lls • Co-Chair Cogliano wants to know about air quality monitors • Lower NOx (Nitrous oxide) levels without purchasing credits. • Keep upgrading facility to invest in it to make it more modern. • Plan Comp r ehensive Health Study, funding for air quality testing and small particle testing, funding for noise monitoring. • Construction of a third Fire Station to cover the west side of town. • Free tipping fees. • Striving for air quality for a better quality of life. • Create a subcommittee for closing of the ash landfi ll

Dennis Moschella recalled that he thought it was “a great idea” until he approached a mall representative, who quickly shot the proposal down. “It was not a good situation to be in,” Moschella said in an interview this week. “We had a band, but no place to put it,” he said. Moschella, a longtime Saugus resident and Vietnam War veteran who has helped many veterans causes through his group Veterans Assisting Veterans (VAV), was desperate to fi nd a solution to his problem. He called his friend, Board of Selectmen Chair Anthony Cogliano, for help. “Anthony made a call. And through his help, we secured the Kowloon Restaurant as a place to hold the concert, and they’ve been helping us ever since,” Moschella said. Moschella, other members of VAV, the group Rockin’ 4 Vets and Kowloon have been busy this summer organizing “Homegrown Rock Concerts” and “Throw Back Thursdays” for New England Vets at — A Benefi t Event for Saugus Youth and sports activities — featuring Panorama, starring The Cars Tribute Band.

Saugus Police and State Troopers responded. Saugus Police Offi - cers Thomas DiPietro, David Harris, and Jenna Fennelly located Mr. Lopez and pulled him from the water and fi rst responders began performing CPR.

The bill provides $500 million one-time tax rebates to an estimated 2 million eligible people. A $250 rebate would go, by September 30, to individual taxpayers and a $500 rebate to married taxpayers. Eligibility will be determined by annual income reported in 2021, with the minimum income required to be $38,000, and the maximum $100,000 for individual fi lers and $150,000 for joint fi lers. Beginning in 2023, several permanent tax reductions would take eff ect including increasing the Child and Dependent Care Credit from $180 per child to $310 per child, as well as eliminating the current cap of $360 for two or more children; increasing the Earned Income Tax Credit from 30 percent to 40 percent of the federal credit; increasing the Senior Circuit Breaker Tax Credit from $750 to $1,755; increasing the rental deduction cap from $3,000 to $4,000; and increasing the estate tax threshold from $1 million to $2 million. The measure would break new ground for the Massachusetts Lottery by allowing it to sell some of its products online. Some of the revenue collected from online sales will go to fund an Early Education and Care Fund. Other provisions include $80 million for community health centers; $30 million to support rest homes; $15 million for grants to reproductive rights providers for security, workforce and educational needs; $175 million for state parks and recreational facilities upgrades, with $25 million for communities of color; $100 million for the Clean Water Trust Fund;                         •       •                            •          Rocco Longo, Owner    $125 million for small businesses, with $75 million for minority-owned businesses; $50 million for broadband investments in underserved communities; and $75 million in grants to hotels across the state who saw fi nancial loses during the pandemic. “Today, the House passed much needed relief for the citizens of the commonwealth,” said Rep.

The onetime stimulus program we adopted, along with the Essential Premium Pay Program from earlier this year, means that nearly three million residents will have received direct payments totaling nearly $1 billion this year.

These are vital forms of real, tangible economic relief.” “This legislation will ensure Massachusetts continues its strong economic growth and puts us in solid footing to rebound from the pandemic,” said Rep. Jerry Parisella (D-Beverly), House Chair of the Committee on Economic Development and Emerging Technologies. “Some highlights include providing a boost to our local theaters, giving our academic institutions the ability to lead the nation in fi elds like artifi cial intelligence, advanced manufacturing, cyber security and robotics. And also provide funding to create thousands of units of housing throughout the commonwealth. (A “Yes” vote is for the bill). Rep. Jessica Giannino Yes Rep. Donald Wong Yes REPRODUCTIVE HEALTH CARE (S 2996) Senate 40-0, approved a bill designed to further protect reproductive health care and those who perform abortions in the Bay State. The measure specifi cally declares that both reproductive health care and gender-affi rming care are rights secured by the constitution or laws of Massachusetts and would shield providers of reproductive and gender-affi rming care and their patients from out-of-state legal action. Other provisions include preventing the state’s cooperation with anti-abortion and anti-gender-affirming care laws in other states; mandating health insurance coverage for abortion and abortion-related care with no cost-sharing; ensuring access to emergency contraception; and providing confi dentiality to providers of reproductive and gender-affi rming care. “Passing this legislation is a monumental step forward in Massachusetts, as we are seeing increasingly more anti-abortion and anti-gender-affirming care legislation rise across the country,” said Sen. Cindy Friedman (D-Arlington), Senate Chair of the Committee on Health Care Financing and the sponsor of the bill. “We must do everything to protect the rights of our providers, patients and visitors to the commonwealth. As we further realize the impact of the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision … we will continue to fi ght these attacks on reproductive and gender-affi rming care with meaningful action.” “A fundamental teaching of the Catholic faith is that an unborn child is a human person with the inalienable right to life and this life must be protected from conception to birth,” said a statement from the Massachusetts Catholic Conference. “It is in this light that the Catholic Bishops of Massachusetts have always strongly opposed abortion and all legislative efforts to expand the practice.” “We cannot let other states threaten Massachusetts’ pregnant and transgender people, or the providers who take care of them,” said Senate President Karen Spilka (D-Ashland). “Massachusetts will not waiver in protecting our residents’ rights. The Legislature prepared for the end of Roe v. Wade by passing the ROE Act in 2020, which ensured the continuation of reproductive healthcare services when we could no longer count on the federal government. Now, we must prepare our commonwealth for the potential further erosion of our rights and protections at the federal level.” “The Legislature’s myopic pursuit of abortion and gender identity extremism is out of sync with the voters of MasBHRC | SEE PAGE 9 OUR OFFICE HAS MOVED TO 519 BROADWAY, EVERETT SABATINO INSURANCE AGENCY 519 BROADWAY EVERETT, MA 02149 PHONE: (617) 387-7466 FAX: (617) 381-9186 Visit us online at: WWW.SABATINO-INS.COM

THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, JULY 22, 2022 Page 9 BHRC | FROM PAGE 8 sachusetts, and seeks to undermine pro-life, pro-parental rights laws across the country,” said the president of the Massachusetts Family Institute Andrew Beckwith. “This bill also specifi cally grants Planned Parenthood the power to effectively re-write our commonwealth’s abortion laws through the regulatory process. When you combine that with the $15 million giveaway to abortion activists in the proposed state budget, it is clear what this is really about: our elected offi - cials handing over power and money to their political allies in the abortion industry.” (A “Yes” vote is for the bill). Sen. Brendan Crighton Yes $10.9 BILLION TRANSPORTATION AND INFRASTRUCTURE PACKAGE (S 2989) Senate 39-0, approved a nearly $11 billion transportation and infrastructure package that includes $1.375 billion for Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) modernization; $400 million for MBTA safety projects; $275 million for the East-West rail project; $1.27 billion for non-federally aided roads and bridges; and a provision that directs the MBTA and allows Regional Transit Authorities across the state to create a low-income fare program. The House has approved a diff erent version of the package and a House-Senate conference committee will likely hammer out a compromise version. Other provisions include $225 million for emissions reduction initiatives, including $50 million to support access to electric vehicle charging infrastructure; $114 million for airport improvements; $25 million for municipal road pavement improvements; and $407.7 million for local and regional transportation projects. Of the more than 200 amendments fi led by senators none came to a roll call vote. Many were simply approved or rejected one at a time on voice votes. To move things along even faster, the Senate also did its usual “bundling” of many amendments. Instead of acting on each amendment one at a time, dozens of the proposed amendments are bundled and put into two piles— one pile that will be approved and the other that will be rejected, without a roll call, on voice votes where it is impossible to tell which way a senator votes. Senate President Karen Spilka, or the senator who is fi lling in for her at the podium, orchestrates the approval and rejection of the bundled amendments with a simple: “All those in favor say ‘aye,’ those opposed say ‘no.’ The ayes have it and the amendments are approved.” Or “All those in favor say ‘aye,’ those opposed say ‘no.’ The no’s have it and the amendments are rejected.” The outcome was predetermined earlier behind closed doors. “This transportation bond bill provides Massachusetts with the key to unlock once-in-a-generation federal funding from the bipartisan infrastructure law,” Sen. Brendan Crighton (D-Lynn), Senate Chair of the Committee on Transportation. “With these combined state and federal investments, we will be able to complete vital work on our highways, roads, bridges and public transportation systems, improving mobility for all residents of the commonwealth.” “While repairs to our transportation infrastructure will be beneficial to many communities across the commonwealth, this bill goes much further than merely repairing but will instead actively transform our infrastructure to be more modern, environmentally sustainable and regionally equitable,” said Senate President Karen Spilka (D-Ashland). “The support for electric vehicles, regional transportation authorities, low-income fares on public transit, expanded East-West connectivity and many other initiatives included in this bill will bring benefi ts to residents, visitors and businesses throughout Massachusetts.” “Today’s passage of this multipronged … transportation infrastructure investment package builds on our longstanding commitment to ensure the commonwealth’s transportation system is more equitable, reliable, safe and modern,” said Sen. Mike Rodrigues (D-Westport), Chair of the Senate Committee on Ways and Means. “Going far beyond just roads and bridges, the Senate’s transportation bond bill will stimulate our economy, increase accessibility for our residents, support local businesses, create jobs, and boost economies in all corners of our commonwealth,” said Rodrigues. (A “Yes” vote is for the package). Sen. Brendan Crighton Yes ALSO UP ON BEACON HILL ADOPT ANIMALS USED IN RESEARCH — “THE BEAGLE BILL” (S 2992) — The Senate approved a bill that would require research labs to make every eff ort to off er healthy animals up for adoption by registered non-profi t animal rescue organizations rather than euthanizing them when the research is done. According to supporters, more than 60,000 dogs—almost all beagles—and nearly 20,000 cats, are used each year for animal experimentation in the United States to advance scientifi c research and to test cosmetics, pharmaceuticals and other household products. Currently, many research labs choose to automatically euthanize these cats and dogs once their experiments are over. The House has already approved a diff erent version of the bill and the Senate version now goes to the House for consideration. “I am proud the Massachusetts Senate passed legislation prioritizing the protection of animals across our commonwealth,” said Sen. Joan Lovely (D-Salem), Senate Chair of the Judiciary Committee. “The Beagle Bill will give research dogs and cats a second chance at life and bring Massachusetts in line with other states across our nation. We owe so much of human advancement to the service and sacrifi ce of these animals, and they deserve to be loved and cherished after a job well done.” House sponsor Rep. Michelle DuBois (D-Brockton) said the bill will save dogs and cats from needlessly dying when their time in the testing lab comes to an end. “This national eff ort was brought to my attention by a constituent … [and] provides a framework to provide an alternate ending in a loving home through places like the MSPCA,” DuBois said. PROTECT PUPPIES AND KITTENS (S 2994) — The Senate approved and sent to the House legislation designed to protect the health and safety of puppies and kittens in cities and towns by addressing inhumane practices relating to the transfer of pets. Provisions include prohibiting the sale of puppies and kittens under eight weeks of age; ending the sale of animals on roadsides, parking lots, fl ea markets or in other public spaces; and requiring the Department of Agricultural Resources to establish reasonable rules and regulations for the operation of breeding kennels and catteries producing pets for the public as well as boarding kennels and daycare facilities for dogs and cats. “Separating puppies and kittens at a critical stage from their mother and litter before the end of their primary socialization developmental stage can result in signifi cant behavioral problems, including separation anxiety and aggression,” said Senate sponsor Sen. Harriette Chandler (D-Worcester). “This bill has the potential to truly protect the wellbeing of puppies and kittens in the commonwealth, who will otherwise suff er without clear, mandatory regulations on their purchase, storage and caretaking.” “As the owner of a Labrador Retriever and a cat, and as a veteran who has observed the important work that animals do to assist the young and the old when we are in crisis and need, I know fi rsthand that our animal companions play a central role in our lives—and promoting their well-being protects both pets and people,” said House sponsor Rep. Linda Dean Campbell. “By ensuring kennels meet safety standards and preventing the dangerous sale of pets that are too young, we will reduce the risk of aggressive behavior that can put dogs, cats and people at risk.” POACHING (S 2993)— The Senate approved and sent to the House a bill that would regulate poaching—the illeBHRC | SEE PAGE 19

THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, JULY 22, 2022 Page 11 Saugus Gardens in the Summer Here’s what’s blooming in town this week to make your walks more enjoyable By Laura Eisener T he great majority of showy, fl owering trees bloom in spring, but one exception is the silk tree (Albizia julibrisson), which is also sometimes known as mimosa. The beautiful silk tree cherished by Gene and Arlene Decareau stands about 30 feet tall behind their house on Central Street. While the summer fl owers are sure to capture people’s attention, the leaves have some interesting features of their own. Each leaf is actually quite large, consisting of 50-60 tiny oval leafl ets, so the tree has a delicate appearance unlike most trees of temperate climates. Every evening, starting around 4:30 p.m., the foliage gradually folds up, remains closed during the night and reopens the following morning. This past Sunday afternoon the Decareaus relaxed for four hours watching the tree’s foliage gradually fold behind the abundant pink and white blossoms, enjoying the pleasant summer weather and big band music on the radio. The original silk tree on their property died after about 30 years near their driveway, and this one that they started from a seed has lived for about 20 years now. They are grateful to still have this tree blooming and healthy after its trunk split a few years ago — it is now held together by a brace. When Gene begins telling people about his mimosa, they often say “Isn’t that a drink with champagne and orange juice?” The name mimosa can also refer to several other plants with similar lacy foliage, also in the pea family (Fabaceae). The tropical sensitive plant — or “tickle me” plant (Mimosa pudica) — folds its leaves very promptly on being touched, one of the reasons it is a popular and entertaining house plant. A South American tree sometimes known as tree mimosa (Mimosa tenuifl ora), calumbi, cabrera or tepezcohuite is also sometimes confused with this plant. The species we see in the Decareaus’ garden is actually native to Asia, and it is also called Persian silk tree. It is much more familiar in southern parts of the country, but a hardy variety was introduced to the United States by Arnold Arboretum’s famed plant explorer Ernest Wilson, and most A PRETTY SIGHT: One of the rose of Sharon shrubs in the Decareau garden was a gift from Joyce Rodenhiser some years ago — now blooming with a beautiful lavender fl ower. (Courtesy photo to The Saugus Advocate by Laura Eisener) of those we see in Massachusetts are this variety. The Decareaus have observed about 10 other silk trees in Saugus in various parts of town, so you may be able to fi nd one or two in your own neighborhood. Also blooming at this time in the Decareaus’ garden are two varieties of a hardy hibiscus shrub known as rose of Sharon (Hibiscus syriacus). Their older shrub has white fl owers with a red center and seems to be a variety known as ‘Red Heart,’ while the younger one, a gift from Joyce Rodenhiser, has a lavender fl ower with a darker center. Rose of Sharon is a popular shrub in most neighborhoods of Saugus and has several fl ower variations in pink, white or light purple, sometimes solid colors and sometimes with a reddish center. Flowers may be single, in which case they will produce seeds, or double, in which case extra petals develop rather than reproductive parts so that new seedlings do not develop. Double fl ower forms do somewhat resemble a rose, although it is not related to actual roses. This species is very widespread around town and grows in many gardens because it can bloom and thrive in sun or part shade. It often remains blooming from July to September. Saugonians walking or cycling on the bike path may notice abundant golden fl owers along the way, especially near Saugus Center. The ox-eye daisies mentioned several weeks ago are nearly fi nished blooming but the black-eyed Susans (Rudbeckia hirta and Rudbeckia fulgida) growing alongside them are now at their peak of bloom. When I stopped to admire them Friday afternoon, a lady who declined to give her name stopped me and said the varied fl owers along the bike path were like “a stairway to heaven” and had helped sustain her through the tough months of COVID. Even in the winter, she said, there was alPROUD OF HIS TREE: Gene Decareau holds a pair of blossoms from his silk tree, which is also called mimosa. (Courtesy photo to The Saugus Advocate by Laura Eisener) ways something of interest in nature along the trail. Two species of black-eyed Susan are commonly available and both are often seen in gardens and fi elds. The common black-eyed Susan (Rudbeckia hirta), also sometimes called brown-eyed Susan, usually has dark brown disk fl owers in the center of golden yellow rays which may be sometimes tinged with red. It is a shortlived, herbaceous plant. Perennial black-eyed Susan, also known as orange conefl ower (Rudbeckia fulgida), often has a slightly smaller fl ower with similarly dark brown or occasionally greenish disc fl owers surrounded by gold to brick red disk fl owers. Many hybrid varieties are available which bloom through the late summer in sunny locations. They are related to sunfl owers and other daisy-like plants in the Aster or composite family (Asteraceae), which is known for its composite flower heads that contain more than one fl ower type. 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, JULY 22, 2022 Retired funeral director turned author Stephen Rocco releases new book By Marianne Salza R ecently retired funeral director Stephen Rocco has been utilizing his experiences in the funeral industry and background in psychology and counseling to write his fi rst fi ctional novels published in June 2022: “The Ecstasy of Pupusas: Filled with Love” and “The Girl Who Woke Up in the Morgue.” “After 10 years in the funeral business, I wanted to use my skills as a family mediator, so I worked in the court system in Dedham for 15 years,” explained Rocco, a Saugus resident. “These varied jobs ultimately helped me in my writing because I combined my training in psychology with all the people I met. You learn about people’s struggles, grief, and resilience.” In “Ecstasy of Pupusas,” Chelsea, the lonely daughter of a wealthy physician, befriends Maria, the family’s housekeeper. The ladies share their dreams and bond over their love of pupusas, but when a horrible incident alters the families’ lives, Maria, an illegal immigrant, is exiled to her home country of El Salvador. Available on Amazon.com and BarnsandNoble.com a hospital and had undergone “Their love for one another is challenged by a terrible act in Chelsea’s home, and both families are plunged into worlds of pain,” described Rocco. “The book is about healing, love, and forgiveness.” The fi ctional drama was inspired by a poignant conversation with Rocco’s neighbor, who, in 7th gunpoint to join the Salvadorian military under the threat of his family being hurt if he did not comply. He eventually escaped through the Mexican desert, where he met his wife, became an American citizen and now manages a cleaning crew. In Rocco’s second novel, “The Girl Who Woke Up in the Morgue,” opiates are claiming grade, was forced at the lives of youths in Springdale. When funeral director Sonny Fiorentino — modeled after Rocco’s father — realizes that overdose victim Kelsey Jordan is alive, he saves her, and the pair vow to expose those responsible for the opiate epidemic. “Sonny forms a friendship with the girl who woke up at his morgue, and they make it their mission to uncover a conspiracy in their town,” said Rocco, who set the novel in the early 2000s, when pills were promoted as safe and nonaddictive. “It involves doctors, pharmacists, street dealers, and runners. It was happening all over America.” The “Girl Who Woke Up in the Morgue” is based on a true story that happened to Rocco’s out-of-state colleague. The victim was so sedated and nonresponsive that she was declared dead by the medical examiner, which, according to Rocco, is unusual, as the victim would normally have been rushed to sophisticated testing. “Around the late 90s-early 2000s, I noticed that I was burying three to four overdoses a year. The siblings and parents were stunned and didn’t know their kids had a drug problem,” remembered Rocco. “They might have had a sports injury or depression, and were put on a drug. Within two months, they were stealing from their parents; within three, they’re dead.” Rocco served for over 40 years as a third-generation funeral director at Salvatore & Sons Funeral Home, in Everett, where he grew up near Encore Boston Harbor casino. He taught at the mortuary school of Saint Ida College, Newton, and was the co-director of its National Center for Death Education from 1992-2018. Rocco has written an educational book for funeral service students about interpersonal skill development and another about confl ict resolution in the court system. He is in the process of publishing his third novel, “Mystery of the Mausoleum.” “The Ecstasy of Pupusas” and “The Girl Who Woke Up in the Morgue” can be purchased online at www.Amazon.com and www.BarnesAndNoble.com. Rocco hopes to hold a book signing or reading for seniors in Everett, or a book club. “I think readers will enjoy the character development, good or bad. One of my characters is a narcissist with no sense of empathy. You learn how that person sees the world,” Rocco pointed out. “I think you’re able to see my heroines grow as people.” Rocco and his wife, Lidia, have four children, and three grandchildren. The energetic retiree exercises daily, lifting weights and walking along Breakheart Reservation and Revere Beach. He also enjoys golf and horse racing.

THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, JULY 22, 2022 Page 15 “A Very Nice Showing” After traveling from Saugus to Cranston, R.I., Sachems Track Camp fi nishes third in track meet By Mark E. Vogler A A group of 33 participants in the Saugus Sachems Track Camp — boys and girls ranging in age from six to 14 — fi nished third overall among 14 teams competing in last Saturday’s (July 16) Second Annual CLCF Summer Showdown in Cranston, R.I. The young athletes captured 16 fi rst place medals, 16 runner-up awards and 11 third place prizes. “The meet director reached out to me to say we had a very nice showing,” track camp Coach Chris Tarantino said in an interview this week on his team’s performance. “He was impressed with our group in general and the way we competed in our events. He gave us some high praise,” Tarantino said. “Most of our athletes were 10 and younger. These are kids who wouldn’t be competing, otherwise, if not for competing in our summer camp.” Tarantino, a 1990 Saugus High School graduate who distinguished himself as a star while on the Sachems track team, has been running a track camp for more than 20 years. Tarantino teamed up with Stephen Boudreau — a 1965 Saugus High School graduate and track star who later was Tarantino’s basketball coach. The town’s Youth & Recreation Department sponsored the track camp, which included a six-week spring program with a one-week break and followed by a two-week summer program. Tarantino said most of his past track camps had competed in the Needham Youth Classic before it ended several years ago. The CLCF Summer Showdown is now fi lling the void left by the end of the classic. “I think it’s a good fi t for our program,” Tarantino said. “I saw this as an event we can grow with,” he said. “All of the kids who competed in last Saturday’s meet contributed in some way to our third place fi nish. The top eight fi nishers in each event scored points. The top three kids got medals. The fourth, fi fth and sixth place fi nishers got ribbons. Our kids dedicated themselves to the camp, worked hard and performed well. They are a very talented group,” he said.

Years ago, many of the athletes who participated in Tarantino’s track camps were 13 and older. And for a number of seniors who participated, it was “the last hurrah,” he said. “Now, it’s a truly developmental camp involving non-scholastic age kids,” he said. They could be the future of the Saugus High track program for years to come, according to Tarantino. Below are the track meeting participants, broken down by age, event and fi nish.

Page 16 THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, JULY 22, 2022 The Sounds of Saugus By Mark E. Vogler What will WIN Waste Innovations offer town? The Board of Health’s Landfi ll Subcommittee is set to hear an off er from representatives of WIN Waste Innovations next week on a potential new host agreement related to the operation of its trash-to-energy plant and the adjacent ash landfi ll on Route 107. WIN, the town’s top taxpayer, is expected to pay $3.1 million in taxes this year. But town offi cials believe the company could be paying even more to Saugus, which is struggling to develop new revenue streams to support the rising costs of local government services. WIN Waste officials are scheduled to make a formal presentation to the town on Wednesday, July 27 at 7 p.m. in the second fl oor auditorium at Saugus Town Hall. It’s a meeting that’s been in the works for a while, but has been delayed for months because of the Board of Health being shorthanded as well as disruptions related to COVID-19 over the past two and a half years. “We look forward to continuing our discussions with the Landfi ll Committee on ways in which the Town can maximize the benefi ts of our public-private partnership with Saugus,” WIN Waste Innovations Vice President of Environment James Connolly said recently. WIN will make its presentation Wednesday night and the public will have a chance to ask questions later, according to Board of Selectmen Chair Anthony Cogliano, who cochairs the Landfill Subcommittee with Board of Health Chair William Heffernan. No vote will be taken on Wednes—Contest— CONTEST SKETCH OF THE WEEK day night. Cogliano says the Landfill Subcommittee will hold a meeting on another night to make a vote, which would wind up being a recommendation to the full Board of Health to consider. The Landfill Subcommittee was created by the Board of Health in late 2020 to promote a better working relationship with WIN (formerly Wheelabrator) on issues related to the incinerator and ash landfi ll. A main focus of the committee members over the past year has been the development of a new host agreement that addresses a wide range of health, safety, environmental and community issues. It would also include the payment of additional money to the town, which could help fund new projects and services that the town currently can’t aff ord, according to Cogliano. Like a long sought-after third fi re station to serve the west side of town, Cogliano said in an interview this week. (See page one story.) Saugus, stay tuned.

In this week’s edition, we continue our weekly feature where a local artist sketches people, places and things in Saugus. Got an idea who was sketched this week? If you do, please email me at mvoge@comcast.net or leave a phone message at 978-683-7773. Anyone who between now and Tuesday at noon identifi es the Saugonian sketched in this week’s paper qualifi es to have their name put in a green Boston Red Sox hat with a chance to be selected as the winner of a $10 gift certifi cate, compliments of Dunkin’ in the Food Court at the Saugus Square One Mall. But you have to enter to win! Look for the winner and identifi cation in next week’s “The Sounds of Saugus.” Please leave your mailing address in case you are a winner.

The pick-up dates and times will be given to you via email. We have a winner! Congratulations to Debbie tifi cation in last week’s “Guess Who Got Sketched” contest. Debbie was one of several readers answering correctly. But she was the only one to have her name picked in a drawing from the green Boston Red Sox cap. Here’s the correct answer, offered by the person who goes by the name of The Sketch Artist: “Dusty roads, long flights and highways, two parents ventured into unknown lands and a future, seeking a better life. “Across the board and in a wide spectrum, they found all they sought! “In 2004, Jean- Martin and Linda Kembo left Cameroon Africa with Crystal, their 10-month old baby in order to provide her with a solid school foundation; a chance for Higher Education. “In 2022, Crystal Fosung Kembo graduated with the Saugus Class of 2022! Crystal applied herself at every step, achieving accomplishments and graduating a TOP TEN Student! Crystal’s been accepted at an Ivy League College. She will be in Brown’s University Class of 2026, studying International and Public Aff airs. As far as Public Aff airs go, Crystal has established quite the resume of achievements! “Further reading about Crystal is available in The Saugus Advocate’s June 10th edition, on pages 4, 5, 6 article, “Saugus High Graduate Crystal Kembo discusses her scholastic success and her parent’s journey from Cameroon to America to obtain higher Education.” “Crystal credits and acknowledges her parents with great gratitude. She credits her younger sister Saugus High junior, Maeva Atsamo Kembo, with helping her through stressful times with fun & laughter! “Thankyou & Congratulations! “Yours Truly, “The Sketch Artist” “Shout-outs” to Advocate volunteers We didn’t receive any nominations from our readers this week for Saugus residents deserving of high praise, so we’ll dedicate this week’s “shoutouts” to key contributors to The Saugus Advocate who volunteer their time to our readers with special features that make the newspaper more interesting and fun to read: Laura Eisener’s “Saugus Cox for making the right iden- Gardens” is a well-researched and well-written feature of the paper that is particularly beloved by folks who enjoy working in their garden and non-gardeners who appreciate fl owers, plants, trees and wildlife they encounter in their travels throughout the town, especially on walks. Laura writes with expertise, drawing on her career experience as a landscape design consultant. She also has a great knack for mixing in fascinating local history about people as well as the fl owers, plants and trees she’s writing about. She also includes interesting scientifi c tidbits as well as garden advice to readers. Many times when I’m doing yard work at my house, I’ll look at a plant or wildfl ower and recall what Laura wrote about it. The local artist who goes by the name of “The Sketch Artist” adds another dimension to the paper, getting people to recognize and talk about unsung heroes in the community and the outstanding contributions they make to the betterment of Saugus. Most of the sketches created by this artist (who prefers to remain a mystery to most readers) focus on the kind acts and goodness of the subjects which contribute to the betterment of the community. “Guess Who Got Sketched” has indeed developed a following among our readers, especially down at the Saugus Senior Center. Like The Advocate’s Trivia Challenge, it entertains people and gives them something to talk about. It’s all positive while augmenting our weekly “Shout-Out” feature of “The Sounds of Saugus” column. Certainly, The Sketch Artist’s answers are very similar to the impact of “ShoutOuts,” which capture the positive aspects of Saugus people. Want to “Shout-Out” a fellow Saugonian? This is an opportunity for our paper’s readers to single out — in a brief mention — remarkable acts or achievements by Saugus residents or an act of kindness or a nice gesture. Just send an email (mvoge@ comcast.net) with a mention in the subject line of “An Extra Shout-Out.” No more than a paragraph; anything longer might lend itself to a story and/or a photo. Summer Concert Series continues Wednesday The National Parks Service and Saugus Public Library are co-sponsoring a free Summer Concert Series that continues

John Beach of St. John’s Episcopal Church wants to get the word out to Saugonians who might be interested in participating in a new book study, via Zoom videoconferencing. The book is called “The Violence Project: How to Stop a Mass Shooting Epidemic” — by Jillian Peterson, PhD and James Densley, PhD. It’s the Winner of the 2022 Minnesota Book Award. According to the website theviolenceproject.org, “Using data from the writers’ groundbreaking research on mass shooters, including fi rst-person accounts from the perpetrators themselves, The Violence Project charts new pathways to prevention and innovative ways to stop the social contagion of violence. “Frustrated by reactionary policy conversations that never seemed to convert into meaningful action, special investigator and psychologist Jill Peterson and sociologist James Densley built The Violence Project, the first comprehensive database of mass shooters. Their goal was to establish the root causes of mass shootings and fi gure out how to stop them…” Theviolenceproject.org quoted Nicole Hockley of Sandy Hook Promise: “If you ever wondered how can we stop mass shootings, this is the book for you. By mixing compelling fi rst-person interviews with mass shooters and signifi cant data analysis, The Violence Project illustrates the tangible ways we can intervene and prevent a tragedy from occurring. No one is helpless — read this book and help stop violence before it starts.” Rev. Beach says the book study meets on Wednesday evenings from 7:30-8:30 East Coast Time, from Sept.7 through Oct. 5. For more information, contact The Rev. John Beach at revjbeach@gmail.com.

Another scam to beware of If you have a loved one you are advocating for who lives in an assisted living facility, a nursing home or even in their own home, here’s a scam you might want to be on the lookout for. I discovered this new scam only by reviewing my brother Wayne’s Medicare Summary Notice. A company based in Coral Gables, Fla., had recently billed Medicare for more than $4,000 for some durable goods, including a knee brace and a back brace. Medicare approved more than $3,000 of the amount and indicated that Wayne may be billed close to $700 later. What?! Why is a Florida-based company billing Medicare for goods that Wayne’s doctor never ordered? And how is that my brother, who lives in an assisted living home in Southeastern Massachusetts, is dealing with a Florida company? It’s either a billing mistake or a scam or outright fraud, especially if Wayne never received the goods. An attorney friend advised me to check and make sure the package of unnecessary durable goods wasn’t stashed in his closet. Unfortunately, it was. As I later learned, a telemarketer for a company called POS Med Corp somehow got a hold of Wayne’s cell phone number and called him. He thought he was talking to somebody from Medicare, who infl uenced him to order “free” medical devices he didn’t need. At minimum, this is the kind of misrepresentation and deception that gets written up by the Better Business Bureau. And my attorney friend located one such review for POS Med Corp. After about four hours of talking to several Medicare representatives on the phone, I learned that this company did indeed do something improper: They are not supposed to solicit business over the phone when selling durable goods. Medicare told me that’s a violation and encouraged me to fi le a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission. Meanwhile, I took the package of unnecessary durable goods to UPS to be shipped back to the company. The task of writing complaints to Medicare and several other agencies remains to be done. My brother’s improper Medicare billing will eventually be corrected. But I believe this scam is more widespread than people may know, and I wanted to share this experience with our readers so other senior citizens don’t become victims of this consumer scam directed at elderly people. Saugus seeks student poll workers Town Clerk Ellen Schena is circulating that “Uncle Sam needs you” flyer again, in search of student poll workers for the town’s fall elections. “I am looking for 16, 17 & 18 years-old Saugus Students to work the September and November Elections,” Schena wrote in a recent email to The Saugus Advocate. “Both are Tuesdays and there will be no school. Attached is the fl yer I have used in the past.” The fl yer includes a facsimile of a poster with a pointing “Uncle Sam” and the declaration “I WANT YOU To Become a Poll Worker Today!” The fl yer, titled “Calling all Saugus High Juniors and Seniors,” promises to accommodate any hours the students want to work. It notes that the students can work as Community Services volunteers to fulfi ll their High School hours, or they can get paid as election workers: 16 year olds can work part-time shifts of 6 to 8 hours; 17 & 18 year olds can work fulltime shifts of eight to 12 hours. Interested students can stop by Town Hall or contact the Town Clerk’s Offi ce to apply for work. Ask for Andrew DePatto, the Saugus Election Coordinator. He can be reached at 781-231-4102. Another bonus for participating students: “Great to have on your College Applications/Resumes.” Food pantry seeks volunteers Here’s a message from Pastor Joe Hoyle of the Cliftondale Congregational Church about a collaborative community commitment to help needy Saugus residents: “The Saugus United Parish Food Pantry is a partnership between the churches in Saugus to ensure that no one in our community faces food insecurity. “With faithful donations and volunteers, we have been able to give out thousands of meals to our neighbors in need throughout the years. The Food Pantry is open every Friday from 9:30am-11am, distributing pre-packaged groceries (including meat and produce) at 50 Essex St. “We are always in need of volunteers. If you would like to volunteer or donate, please contact Pastor Joe Hoyle, Executive Director at offi ce@clindalecc.org or 781-233-2663.” Compost site now open The community’s compost site is open to residents on Wednesdays and Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. The site is located behind the Department of Public Works at 515 Main St. Stickers are required to gain seasonal access to the site.

Other provisions elevate the fi nes and penalties for poaching; align Massachusetts poaching regulations with other states; and bring Massachusetts into the Interstate Wildlife Violator Compact, which helps states to work together to prevent illegal hunting across state lines. “It has been nearly a century since many of the commonwealth’s anti-poaching laws were last updated,” said sponsor Sen. Michael Moore (D-Millbury). “The absence of action on anti-poaching laws has resulted in outdated penalties that result in no more than a slap on the wrist for offenders. This legislation fi nally brings our laws, fi nes and penalties in line with other states. It also brings Massachusetts into the Interstate Wildlife Violator Compact, a nationwide law enforcement network that allows our wildlife protection agencies to share information about poachers with other states. With the passage of this legislation, Massachusetts is making it clear that we will no longer be a safe haven for those who wish to do harm to our wildlife, marine life and ecosystems.” $56 MILLION FOR FAMILIES OF VICTIMS OF HOLYOKE SOLDIERS’ HOME (H 4932) — The House and Senate gave fi nal approval to and sent to Gov. Charlie Baker $56 million in funding for the families of the victims of the COVID-19 outbreak at the Holyoke Soldiers’ Home. Sen. John Velis (D-Holyoke), chair of the Veterans and Federal Affairs Committee said that these families have been through so much over the past two years. “No dollar fi gure will ever bring their loved ones back, but this resolution does end the painful process of litigation,” said Velis. “What happened at the home will forever leave a scar on our commonwealth, especially Western Mass. Now we must continue to work to get much needed reforms for the home signed into law as well.” PROHIBIT REVOCATION OF PROFESSIONAL LICENSES IF A PERSON DEFAULTS ON A STUDENT LOAN (H 425) — House gave initial approval to legislation that would repeal current state laws which created professional licensure consequences for anyone who defaults on their student loan. Under existing law, a borrower’s state-issued professional or occupational certifi cate, registration or license can be suspended, revoked or cancelled if the borrower is in default on an education loan. “As a former seventh grade public school teacher and an education attorney for more than a decade, I’ve come to expect Massachusetts to be identifi ed as a pioneer in a promising practice or out in front on an education issue,” said sponsor Rep. Kate Lipper-Garabedian (D-Melrose). “So I was quite surprised to find that Massachusetts is one of the only states that mandates the denial of professional licenses to student loan defaulters. This draconian approach prevents an individual from access to the profession for which he or she has trained and has the perverse result of furthering hindering their ability to earn a living and making it more diffi cult to make loan payments. And as families work to recover from the fi nancial fallout of the pandemic, the last thing the state should do is deny them access to their professional pursuits because of student loan defaults.” “CROWN ACT” — FORBID DISCRIMINATION AGAINST A PERSON WITH A NATURAL HAIRSTYLE (H 5028) — The House and Senate approved a new version of a bill that would prohibit any person or entity including educational institutions workplaces and public spaces from implementing any policy that would explicitly target someone who wears their natural hairstyle. The measure defi nes natural hairstyle as hair texture, hair type and protective hairstyles including braids, locks, twists and other formations. Only fi nal Senate approval is needed prior to the measure going to Gov. Baker for his signature. “Racial discrimination is unacceptable in all of its forms,” BHRC | SEE PAGE 22

Dear Savvy Senior, I’ve been taking daily aspirin for almost 20 years now because I have a family history of heart disease. But I recently read that using aspirin is not recommended anymore. What can you tell me about this change in philosophy? Confused Aspirin User Dear Confused, There’s no doubt that taking lowdose daily aspirin is benefi cial to most people who’ve had a heart attack or stroke. But if you don’t have heart disease, should you take it as a preventative measure? The answer for most people is probably not, according to new guidelines from the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF), a widely respected independent panel that develops recommendations on preventive health care. Here’s what you should know. New Guidelines For years, aspirin has been a goto pill Americans use to help ward off cardiovascular disease because of its blood thinning capability. But like most medicines, it can cause serious side eff ects. Aspirin irritates the stomach lining and can cause bleeding in the stomach, intestines and brain which can be life-threatening. And the risk of bleeding increases with age. About one-third of Americans age 40 and older, and more than 45 percent of people over age 70 – who don’t have cardiovascular disease — already take a daily aspirin to help prevent cardiovascular disease because it’s been recommended for decades by many diff erent health experts. But in the past few years, new research has emerged showing that for many people without diagnosed heart disease, the risk of bleeding may outweigh the benefi ts of taking a daily aspirin. This research, along with the advent of other eff ective therapies in preventing heart attacks and strokes that don’t cause bleeding — better blood pressure drugs and statins for lowering cholesterol — has narrowed the role aspirin plays. Here’s a breakdown of the updated USPSTF guidelines of who should, and shouldn’t, take a daily aspirin, and for those who should, how to take it safely. Who Should Take It? There are two categories of people who can still benefi t from using aspirin. People with established cardiovascular disease, especially those who have already had a heart attack or stroke. There’s strong evidence that taking a daily low-dose aspirin signifi cantly reduces the risk of a second cardiovascular event. And adults ages 40 to 59 with a 10 percent or higher risk for a cardiovascular disease over the next decade. They may see a small benefi t to daily aspirin, but it should be an individual decision and discussed with your doctor. Who Should Skip It? People who are 60 and older — without established cardiovascular disease — who do not currently take a daily aspirin to prevent heart disease should not start now. This is particularly true for people with a history of bleeding, say from ulcers or aneurysms, or those taking medications such as blood thinners, steroids or anti-infl ammatories such as ibuprofen or naproxen. If they already take a daily aspirin now, they should ask a doctor about how to proceed, because there may be a serious risk to suddenly stopping. How to Use it Safely The best approach is to talk to your doctor about the potential risks and benefits of aspirin specifi cally for you. Because the risk of bleeding raises with dosage, if aspirin is recommended, take the lowest possible amount, which for most people is an 81 mg baby aspirin. And if you experience any stomach pain, talk to your doctor. You should also know that in 2016 the USPSTF suggested that daily aspirin use could also help lower the risk of colorectal cancer along with cardiovascular disease. But the group now says there’s not enough evidence to support that claim. Send your senior questions to: Savvy Senior, P.O. Box 5443, Norman, OK 73070, or visit SavvySenior.org.

Page 22 THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, JULY 22, 2022 BHRC | FROM PAGE 19 said bill sponsor Rep. Mike Day (D-Stoneham). “I was proud to join my House colleagues in unanimously advancing a bill which would ensure that Black students and workers won’t be told that their hair is unprofessional or be forced to cut it in order to participate in activities or go to work. I hope that the governor will join the Legislature in standing against discrimination by signing these protections into law.” “On the long march toward justice, and especially racial justice, the Legislature’s passage of this legislation marks another step forward,” said Sen. Jason Lewis (D-Winchester), Senate Chair of the Committee on Education. “We would not be at this point without the great courage and strength of Mya and Deanna Cook, who as 15-year-old students faced discrimination and abuse from their high school for their hairstyles, and bravely stood up for their rights and those of so many other black women.” QUOTABLE QUOTES “Taxpayers are experiencing the largest infl ation spike in 41 years and our Statehouse leaders have a pile of money they could give back to help taxpayers with these high costs. Instead, they are choosing to hold onto the vast majority of the money and they even have the nerve to continue to push for their graduated income tax surcharge amendment which will increase the state income tax by 80 precent on some high-income earners and small businesses.” — Paul Craney, spokesman for the Mass Fiscal Alliance. “This legislation is critically important because despite the well-known hazards, Massachusetts law still permits schools and childcare centers to use toxic pesticides … on playgrounds and playing fi elds. Shielding our communities and children from these damaging pesticides ought to be a public health priority.” — From an open letter from several representatives and organizations to House Speaker Ron Mariano, supporting a bill that would improve pesticide protections for Massachusetts schoolchildren. “This train is leaving the station.” — Sen. Jo Comerford (D-Northampton) during debate on railway service. 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 fi led. They note that the infrequency and brief length of sessions are misguided and lead to irresponsible late-night sessions and a mad rush to act on dozen s of bills in the days immediately preceding the end of an annual session. During the week of July 1115, the House met for a total of 15 hours and 16 minutes and the Senate met for a total of 14 hours and 46 minutes. Mon.
