SAUGUS Saugus’ Only Local Weekly News Source! OCODDV C TECATAAT Vol. 25, No. 32 -FREE- www.advocatenews.net Published Every Friday 781-233-4446 Friday, August 12, 2022 A SAUGUS FIREFIGHTING FIRST First female recruit to carry on family legacy as Saugus fi refi ghter By Tara Vocino R achael Patrizzi, the brother of a former Saugus firefighter, made local history this week by becoming the town’s fi rst woman fi refi ghter. She was among a group of fi ve new fi refi ghters who began training in the parking lot of the Central Fire Station on Hamilton Street throughout the week. Patrizzi, 27, is a Saugus High School 2013 graduate and was an outstanding student-athlete who ran track and fi eld. “I feel proud becoming the fi rst female fi refi ghter,” Patrizzi said. “Having the opportunity to represent the town is an honor.” Patrizzi, of Beverly, is a personal trainer and competes in CrossFit competitions, adding that it prepared her for the physical demands of the job. Her husband, Guido, is a Revere police offi cer. Firefi ghting blood runs through several generations of her family. Her brother, James Donovan, of Boston, is a former Saugus fi refi ghter who worked for the town for seven years before going to work for the Boston Fire Department. Patrizzi’s father – James Donovan – worked for the Saugus Police Department for 32 years, retiring as a decorated detective on Feb. 5, the same day his son resigned to accept a job with the Boston Fire Department. Detective Donovan worked briefly for the Saugus Fire Department as a temporary fi refi ghter. But there were budget cuts in the town and the funding for the Fire Department. Several months later, the town received funding for police offi cers, and he took both tests and applied to the Police Department. He got hired and spent a long career as a Saugus police offi cer. Patrizzi›s great grandfather – the late Edwin “Bucker” Holmes – was a “Person of the Year Award” recipient at the 1996 Founders Day and FIREFIGHTER | SEE PAGE 2 A MILESTONE MOMENT: Rachael Patrizzi concentrates during a training exercise for new Saugus Fire Department recruits at the Central Fire Station this week.

Lincoln Ave. at Cogliano Plaza during Tuesday’s meeting at Town Hall. Only one person spoke in opposition. Managed by Saugus native Paul Delios of the former Paolo’s Trattoria, who is co-owner/creative director of Kane’s on Lincoln Avenue and along Route 1, plans are to open a family-friendly Italian eatery with Mediterranean overtones where a former pizza place was located in Cogliano Plaza. “I found that the town in the interior are underserved in not having any little Italian restaurants,” Delios said. “People would enjoy having a little neighborhood place to go.” The hours are Monday to Friday from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. and weekends from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m., possibly serving brunch. Forty restaurant seats will be available and approximately eight to nine seats will be bar stools. There would be no televisions, but soft background music would be played. Selectman Jeff Cicolini said he fully supports the application. “You’ve been an absolute diamond for Saugus with your other businesses,” Cicolini said to Delios. “It’s great to see people in this economy taking a risk and putting money and effort investing in Saugus.” Selectman Corinne Riley said she loves the idea, asking about the renovations.

Surprise $43.95 ing that Shining Stars Learning Center – a 20-year-old Saugus-based business that specializes in preschool education – is moving into the neighborhood. “We have been searching for a building to purchase for a very long time. The property needed to be big enough for our program and would also allow for parking and a playground,” Shining Stars owner Tricia Murphy said recently of her center’s move. “The Building in Cliftondale has all of that with unique interior architecture,” she said. “There is a lot of work to be done. First on the agenda is to remove all of the built-in safes and the vault door. Classrooms will be on the main floor, in the full basement and we will use the mezzanine as well. The building is flooded with sunlight, and we plan on transforming the interior into a cheerful and welcoming place.” Shining Stars has spent the last 17 years in the old Edwards School located at 20 Denver St. “Last Fall when I noticed the building was empty, I inquired about its future, thinking it would make a beautiful school for us,” Murphy said. “At that time, there were no plans to sell it.

Vogler) we saw it was being sold, we jumped. As a Saugus business owner, I was on the Cliftondale Revitalization Committee at the beginning of the research and read the final report. Cliftondale has such promise and we are so proud to be a business bringing new vibrant life to the area,” she said. Murphy said she hopes the center will open this fall with the same hours as in the past: 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. The center provides early learning for about 125 children. It offers programs for infants, toddlers, preschoolers and a before- and after-school program. Preschool is by far the center’s biggest program. During the school year, Shining Stars has about 30 teachers. The staff expands to about 40 teachers during the summer, as its summer camp requires more staff. “One of the best things about Shining Stars – aside from our amazing children – is our teachers,” Murphy said. “They are dedicated, passionate, and loving. Of the 40 staff this summer, 15 of them are former students. There are 11 teachers that have been with us for 10 or more years; two of them just celebrated their 20-year anniversary and have been with us since the first day we opened. It is remarkable to work alongside such incredible people,” she said. Murphy has been in the education field for more than 25 years. “The two people I mentioned that have been with us for 20 years, we all started out at the same childcare center in Marblehead together. Now they help run Shining Stars,” she said. “My husband and I, along with our three children, lived in Saugus for 15 years, while Shining Stars was just starting out. An opportunity came up to purchase a friend’s house in Lynnfield and we took it. Saugus has always been like my second hometown,” she said. Murphy said she ascribes to “the Golden Rule” philosophy as she runs her business. “Our mission is to treat every child the way you would want your child treated,” Murphy said. “This comes from the Golden Rule taught to me by my mom. She once said to me, “If everyone treated each other the way they want to be treated, wouldn’t the world be a beautiful place?” That just stuck with me and it’s how we run our program and try to live our lives. I believe this is why we have so many of our former students who want to come back and work, and why our teachers are so committed to this profession,” she said. “Many of the families that have brought their children to us, past and present, have become lifelong friends. It is incredible to work as a team with families when they already feel like family.” Shining Stars’ relocation to Cliftondale is welcome news for town officials and residents who are eager to see the once-bustling neighborhood business district revitalized. “Having a preschool like Shining Stars is a good way to get foot traffic in Cliftondale during the day,” said Selectman Corinne Riley, a lifelong Cliftondale resident. “The local shops that are presently still doing business could benefit from parents maybe stopping to get a bite to eat or nails or hair appointments, even by the employees,” Riley said. “I wish them well in their new home. Also, it will be good to see new life there, and hope to continue to fill the empty storefronts with a nice restaurant and enticing new businesses to continue to revitalize Cliftondale.”

THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – FriDAy, AUGUST 12, 2022 Page 5 PLACE YOUR BETS: Governor Baker signs bill establishing legal sports betting in Mass. rollout could take several months, according to MGC; Encore Boston Harbor expected to seek license for ‘sports book’ on-site in Everett By Steve Freker I t has been a long three years since Massachusetts lawmakers formally approved legal sports betting in the Commonwealth. On Wednesday, Governor Charlie Baker played “Beat the Clock” when he signed into law a sports wagering bill that will allow both in-person and online betting— less than 24 hours before a Thursday deadline for new legislation to be off ered and adopted for the year. The Governor’s bill signing fi nalizes what has been a three-yearlong push to legalize sports betting in Massachusetts and bring the state into line with many of its neighbors. Sports betting is already legal in more than 30 states, including four states that border Massachusetts: Rhode Island, New Hampshire, Connecticut and New York. Under the bill signed into law by the Governor on Wednesday, anyone at least 21 years old will be able to place a wager in Massachusetts, with a 15% tax on in-person wagers and a 20% tax on mobile bets. Governor Baker took a historical tack when describing the story around signing the new bill. “Our administration fi rst fi led legislation to legalize sports wagering in the Commonwealth several years ago, and I am glad to be able to sign this bill into law today,” Governor Baker said in a statement. “We appreciate the dedication and compromise that the Legislature demonstrated on this issue, and we look forward to supporting the work of the Massachusetts Gaming Commission on the responsible implementation of the law over the next several months,” Governor Baker added. While there will be excitement in the Greater Boston area and beyond for the introduction of legal sports betting, state officials advised that “this isn’t something that is going to happen overnight,” or even in time for the fall NFL and college football seasons – two of the most heavily wagered seasons of the year, according to experts. According as you can,” he said. “I know Encore has built a room, and I know MGM is depending on this to increase their bottom line. So, I hope we can get it up and running … at least in time for fall football.” The new sports wagering law Baker approved sets a 15% tax rate on in-person sports betting and 20% for mobile or digital wagering. It also allows for some collegiate sports betting, though PLACE YOUR BETS | SEE PAGE 7 Governor Charlie Baker signed into law the ability to legally place wagers on professional and collegiate sports in Massachusetts. (Courtesy Photo) to reports, it may take until 2023 before people can place bets within the state on Boston and other sports teams. The Massachusetts Gaming Commission (MGC) must now solidify regulations for the newly legal state industry and process licensing applications. Mass. Gaming Commissioner Brad Hill said regulators want to “take our time” with implementing the new law. “I want the public to understand, as we as commissioners are starting to understand, that this isn’t something that’s going to happen overnight,” Commissioner Hill said Wednesday night in a statement released by the Commission. In an online report, Hill said, “I just want the public to be clear, at least from my view – I’m not speaking for the whole commission – but from my point of view, this is going to take a little longer than people probably anticipate. And I’m OK with that.” One of the most anticipated related moves would be the introduction of a “sports book” site at Encore Boston Harbor in Everett, which already has a space in place at the casino inside its new sports bar, named WynnBET, which features 60-plus television screens for all the big games. Mass. House Speaker Ronald Mariano said in an online report that it would be “disappointing” if implementation takes too long. “You’ve got two hotels that are ready to open the doors as quickly

Page 6 THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – FriDAy, AUGUST 12, 2022 Man Arrested in Connection with July Fatal Shooting in Everett (Editor’s Note: This is a press release from the Middlesex District Attorney’s Office) E VERETT – Middlesex District Attorney Marian Ryan and Everett Chief of Police Steven Mazzie have confirmed that Brian Green, 35, of Saugus, has been arrested and charged with murder in connection with the death of Jarmahl Sutson, 38, of Lynn, that occurred inside a Central Avenue residence on July 19, 2022. At approximately 4:22 a.m., Everett Police responded to a Central Avenue apartment for a report of a medical emergency. Upon arrival police located the victim unresponsive with an apparent gunshot wound. The subsequent investigation revealed that Brian Green previously resided at the Central Avenue apartment and that he was reportedly upset about the victim’s relationship with his estranged wife who still lived in the apartment. In the early morning of July 19, the defendant allegedly ITALIAN EATERY | FROM PAGE 3 safe-certified at the restaurant, according to Delios. Opponent John Baginsky, who is an abutter, spoke about the lack of parking. He estimated that the restaurant would need 25 parking spaces. “I don’t think the stores would appreciate him taking so many parking spaces,” Baginsky said, asking if it went to the apartment where the victim was staying and fatally shot him in the bedroom. Investigators were subsequently able to identify Brian Green as the alleged shooter following a review of surveillance video and other evidence. Green was arrested today in Reading without incident. He is expected to be arraigned in would be a full liquor license. Cicolini replied that the parking plan was signed off on by Inspectional Services. Baginsky felt that it was a bad idea to have a new restaurant near the takeout restaurant Goodfellas, which recently opened. He also didn’t think dumpsters should be near his or other homes. “I’m so upset with this town,” Baginsky said. “It’s not right.” A new restaurant will be in Cogliano Plaza.

THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – FriDAy, AUGUST 12, 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 I n some places the drought has taken quite a toll – many trees on Vinegar Hill have brown leaves, even after a few brief thunderstorms this week. Water loving plants like beach plums near the river are also showing stress from the drought. August’s full moon last night looked down on a thirsty landscape, but the woods in Breakheart Reservation is fragrant with summer sweet (Clethra alnifolia) despite the dry weather. The flowers of this shrub are often smelled before they are seen. Sweet corn (Zea mays) is one of the edible plants most often associated with the month of August, since many varieties ripen this month and sweet corn lovers flock to farmer’s markets to seek out fresh ears if they are not growing corn in their own garden. A member of the grass family, corn typically has separate staminate (often called “male”) flowers and pistillate (often called “female”) flowers on the same plant. Several staminate flowers grow in what is known as a tassel at the top of the stems, and they produce pollen. Pistillate flowers grow on a thickened stalk or cob farther down, and if pollinated, will develop the familiar ear of sweet kernels, which are the seeds of the plant. Other types of corn, called field corn, may be used to make corn meal, fed to livestock or made into corn oil. Other varieties are grown for popcorn. In much of the world, what we refer to as corn is called maize. In the 17th century, when the Saugus Iron Works was originally built, most Europeans referring to corn would be thinking of any kind of grain – more likely wheat, barley, oats or rye, although they would have known of the North American grain known as maize. Today what we call corn is grown worldwide and has more varied uses than almost any other plant. As a cereal grain it is eaten by people and livestock, and some kinds are grown for flour, cornstarch, corn oil, liquor (such as bourbon), biofuels and many other purposes. Even if we are not growing corn in our gardens, there may be kernels out there, since some kinds of corn kernels are used in birdseed mixes. Many commercial cornfields are growing genetically modified varieties, but seeds available for home gardeners include many heirloom varieties. Other parts of the corn, such as the leaves or husks, may be left on during cooking or grilling sweet corn, used to wrap ingredients in tamales or made into corn dolls. Corn cobs have been traditionally used to make corncob pipes. The growing plants also play a part in summer-fall recreational activities as corn mazes have become popular. Very few plants have so many uses as this New World grass. Another New World plant which often achieves its peak of splendor in August is the sunflower (Helianthus annuus). In one growing season this species can reach great heights and produce a large and showy flower head, or several, depending on variety. Dee LeMays’ Springdale Avenue garden includes several kinds, some close to 10’ tall and others with multiple blossoms in pale yellow and orangey tones. They have always been popular with their flower heads that look like the sun, but their seeds are also used as food for people and birdseed, as well as made into oil. Some farms have opened sunflower fields which are popular for visiting and photographing. Sunflowers are the national flower of Ukraine and the state flower of Kansas. If you prefer to seek out shade, one of the most delightful woodland flowers of late summer is red lobelia or cardinal flower (Lobelia cardinalis), which blooms all over New England. Each individual blossom looks like a cardinal in flight, and it blooms for several weeks with blossoms starting at the base of the spike and opening closer to the top as the season goes on. Hummingbirds are drawn to the flowers’ bright red color and spend some time every morning looking for nectar in my garden. 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. IN SEARCH OF NECTAR: This female hummingbird checks out the cardinal flowers every morning.

Page 12 THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – FriDAy, AUGUST 12, 2022 The Sounds of Saugus By Mark E. Vogler Ash landfill debate continues WIN Waste Innovations is expected to reach capacity at its ash landfill adjacent to its trash-to-energy plant on Route 107 within two years. When it runs out of space, WIN will have to truck the ash to another location. But WIN has offered the town a proposed Host Community Agreement to consider: WIN pays the town up to $15 million in exchange for adding 25 additional years to the life of the ash landfill. There was an interesting Facebook posting that was brought to my attention recently. “It’s about time, but I’m not sure taking 15 million from WIN waste is a good idea. I’d rather they take their 15 million and bring their polluting incinerator up to date with the rest in the state....feels like a bribe and the cost is our health. I’d rather pay more and breathe clean air, just my opinion....we do need the fire station though.” That’s one of many opinions floating around town on what surely will wind up the FIREFIGHTER | FROM PAGE 2 Saugus resident Thomas Trainor Jr., 27, is a 2013 Saugus High School graduate who played football, basketball, track and baseball. “My inspiration comes from the desire to serve and protect the town…I have been inspired by the idea of such a rewarding job and friends that have worked the job before me,” Trainor Jr. said. He is not married nor does he have children. Trainor Jr. worked as a dispatcher for the town. He will be the first firefighter in his family. Fire Captain Christopher Rizza said the recruits are on a oneyear probationary period. On Tuesday, they did a classroom lecture, followed by ground ladder practice. “It went well,” Rizza said. “A lot of information is thrown at them very fast.” Fire Captain Christopher Rizza (far right) took advantage of the summer temperatures to train the new probationary firefighters outside of the Central Fire Station on Tuesday. Fire Captain Christopher Rizza and trainee Rachael Patrizzi adjusted the ladder during Tuesday’s training. most polarizing question for the town to consider in recent memory: Should Saugus make a multimillion-dollar deal with WIN to extend the life of the ash landfill? Saugus residents and people from neighboring communities will get a chance to share their views on the question when the Board of Health’s Landfill Subcommittee holds a public feedback session next week (at 7 p.m., Wednesday, Aug. 24, in the second floor auditorium of Saugus Town Hall). Town residents and others who wish to submit questions or comments for the Aug. 17 meeting can email them to Selectman Corinne Riley at criley@ Saugus-ma.gov. “I have received just one question so far,” Selectman Riley said recently. Her town email is being used for public feedback because she is the secretary of the Landfill Subcommittee (which has been referred to as the Wheelabrator Subcommittee, the WIN Waste Innovations Subcommittee and by a few other names). “There will be citizen comment during the meeting where anyone will be able to ask a question or make a comment. Any member of the committee can be contacted, just as any other board or committee members are approachable. My email is still being used for submitting questions/comments,” Riley said. The subcommittee, which is being co-chaired by Board of Selectmen Chair Anthony Cogliano and Board of Health Chair William Heffernan, will be meeting several times before making its recommendation to the full Board of Health on whether to accept or reject WIN Waste’s proposed Host Community Agreement. It’s important to note that it will take many more meetings involving several town and state agencies before a Host Community Agreement becomes a reality. If Saugus residents don’t get a chance to attend next Wednesday’s meeting, there will be plenty of opportunity for them to express their concerns before any agreement is reached. It’s not a done deal. The subcommittee had been meeting with WIN officials for about 18 months to discuss a wide range of issues, which has improved relations between the town and trash-to-energy plant owners and, hopefully, will lead to the betterment of Saugus. Stay tuned. Back-to-School countdown Hey, Saugus kids! Hope you’ve made the most of your summer vacation, as you will be headed back to school two weeks from this coming Monday (Aug. 15).

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 “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 The Violence Project, “Using data from the writers’ groundbreaking research on mass shooters, including first-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 figure out how to stop them…” According to Sandy Hook Promise Co-Founder/Managing Director Nicole Hockley, “If you ever wondered how can we stop mass shootings, this is the book for you. By mixing compelling first-person interviews with mass shooters and significant 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 group meets on Wednesday evenings from 7:30-8:30 East Coast Time, from Sept. 7 through Oct. 5. For more information, contact The Rev.

My husband and I, who recently retired, are planning to relocate to an area closer to our grandkids and are interested in buying a house in an age-restricted 55-plus housing community. Active Retirees Dear Active, If you’re contemplating moving into an age-restricted community, finding one that’s right for you takes some legwork. While active adult communities generally offer the opportunity for a lower-maintenance lifestyle around similar aged people, they vary enormously. Here’s what you should know. Today’s active adult communities come in all shapes, sizes and price ranges, ranging from small city-based apartment complexes, to single-family homes, to sprawling resort-style locations situated on a gated golf course. Most are owned by their occupants, but a growing number are rentals. Typically, at least one occupant of each property must be at least 55. It’s also important to understand that 55-plus active adult communities are not the same as retirement or independent living communities, which are primarily designed for older seniors in their 70s and 80s. Active adult communities do not typically include meals or have a central dining area, but many of them do offer a range of recreational amenities and activities. To help you locate and research active adult communities in the areas you’re interested in, the best resource is 55places.com. This is a comprehensive website that provides ratings, reviews and information on activities and amenities for thousands of communities across the country. Once you find a few you like, here are some questions to ask yourself that can help you choose: What’s our budget? To help you choose the right active adult community you’ll first need to determine what you can afford. Consider the home’s purchase price, whether you’ll need a mortgage, how much the property taxes and insurance are, and how much the homeowners’ association or community fees are. These fees, which typically run a few hundred dollars per month, go toward lawn care and possibly snow removal, as well as community areas like a clubhouse or pool. However, some communities may require additional memberships or fees for golf, tennis, classes, or other activities. You also need to consider the area’s cost of living for other things like food, utilities, transportation, health care and taxes. Numbeo. com and BestPlaces.net offer tools to compare the cost from your current location to where you would like to move. And Kiplinger’s has a tax guide for retirees at Kiplinger.com/links/retireetaxmap that lets you find and compare taxes state-by-state. How active is the community? Some communities provide fitness facilities, swimming pools, tennis courts and more, along with dozens of organized activities, classes and social events. Other communities are much simpler and more laid back with very limited amenities and structured activities. You’ll want to choose a community that has the types of people, facilities, activities and vibe that appeals to you. Will we like the surrounding area? Will the area around your prospective community serve your needs now and in the future? Ideally, this means having easy access to good doctors and hospitals, and a local airport if you plan to travel much. You’ll also want to research how far you’ll be from essential services like grocery stores, banks and pharmacies, as well as dining, shopping, and recreational attractions. Schedule a Visit Once you’ve narrowed your choices, call to make an appointment and visit them. Be sure to allow plenty of time at each community and, if possible, go back to your favorites more than once. Also be sure to ask questions while you are visiting, particularly about the community rules. Some developments will let you stay overnight in a model home for a few nights to get a feel of what it would be like to live there. While you are there, try the amenities and activities, and speak with as many residents as you can. Send your senior questions to: Savvy Senior, P.O. Box 5443, Norman, OK 73070, or visit SavvySenior.org. Jim Miller is a contributor to the NBC Today show and author of “The Savvy Senior” book. ing a Grand Knights’ Banquet on Friday, Sept. 9.

Dennis Moschella, a longtime Saugus resident and Vietnam War veteran who has helped many veterans causes through his group Veterans Assisting Veterans (VAV), has a date that the parents of Saugus school-age kids might want to put on their calendars: Thursday, Aug. 25 at 7 p.m. Moschella has been working hard behind the scenes to organize a benefit event for Saugus youth and sports activities – featuring Panorama (a Cars tribute band). Doors open at 6. Moschella said this event is planned as a special favor to thank Board of Selectmen Chair Anthony Cogliano. This fundraiser is designed to help one of Cogliano’s favorite causes: Saugus youth and sports activities. Anyone interested in tickets for the Aug. 25 concert can contact Dennis Moschella at 781-316-4486. You may also order tickets by calling the Kowloon Restaurant at 781233-0077. If you can’t make the concert, Moschella suggests that you still buy the ticket and give it to somebody who can’t afford to go. Buy a brick to honor a Saugus veteran The Saugus War Monument Committee once again is sponsoring the Buy A Brick Program to honor all those who have served their country. If you would like to purchase one in the name of someone who is presently serving or has served, in the memory of a loved one, or just for someone from your family, school, etc., the general pricing is $100 for a 4″ X 8″ brick (three lines) and $200 for an 8″ X 8″ brick (five lines). Each line is a maximum of 15 characters. The improvement and upkeep of the monument on the corner of Winter and Central Streets rely on the generosity of donors through fundraising. The brick application must be in by Sept. 15 to ensure the bricks will be ready for Veterans Day. Please contact Corinne Riley at 781-231-7995 for more information and applications.
