Vogler T here are just two reasons for Saugus residents to vote Republican in next Tuesday’s (Sept. 6) state primary election. Their only votes that matter would be to select the gubernatorial and lieutenant governor candidates in the Nov. 8 general election. The other 10 races on the ballot are uncontested. Five of them lack a Republican candidate – including in the Essex County races for District Attorney and Sheriff . The choices for voters selecting from the Democratic Party ballot are limited, too. Only six of the 12 offi ces are contested.

THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – FriDAy, SEpTEmbEr 2, 2022 Page 3 Rolling to Washington Vietnam Era Veterans ready to leave on Sept. 11 for fi ve-day bus trip to Nation’s capital to see and feel “The Wall” By Mark E. Vogler U .S. Marine veteran Michael Arsenault knows it will be a moving experience when he returns to Washington, D.C., later this month to view the Vietnam Veterans Memorial again. “When you see the names of men you were with when they died, it gets emotional,” the 74-year-old Saugus resident said in an interview this week as he sat at a table at Saugus VFW Post 2346. “I’ve been there before; it has a personal impact and it’s something worth revisiting. I was with the third Battalion, third Marines. We lost over 100 guys – seven of them who I knew. I have the tracings of seven names on the wall, and I got to lay a wreath on the wall the last time I was down there,” he said. Arsenault, a Vietnam veteran E-4 corporal, was among a group of 40 Vietnam Era Veterans from Saugus, Wakefield and Melrose who enjoyed a “Roll to Washington 2022” orientation breakfast at the VFW Post on Tuesday (Aug. 30). They will board a bus early on Sept. 11 and depart on a five-day, fournight coach bus trip to the nation’s capital to see and feel “The Wall.” The trip will also include wreath-laying ceremonies at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial and at the Tomb of Unknown Soldier at Arlington National Cemetery and visits at various memorial sites as well as other stops in the D.C. area. All attendees will be staying at Embassy Suites in Vienna, Va. Joining Arsenault at the Tuesday morning breakfast was Joe Johnson, 72, of Saugus, a Vietnam Era veteran who served as a Specialist 4 with the U.S. Army. “I was in Washington years ago, but that was before they built ‘The Wall.’ So, I’m looking forward to going down to see it,” Johnson said in an interview. “Just being with guys from the same era is going to be part of the healing process for me. These are guys who served their country during crazy times – during a period when the veterans were not treated well,” Johnson said. “I’m thankful to all of the sponsors who made this trip possible. I’m looking to learn a lot and bring back what I learn from this trip.” Arsenault and Johnson are longtime Saugus residents and friends who grew up in Chelsea, a community that suffered significant tragedy during the Vietnam War. “We had 10 people who died during the Vietnam War,” Arsenault said. A trip to promote self-healing and recognition This will be the third “Roll to Washington” trip for Joseph “Dennis” Gould, a Vietnam Era veteran who helped organize the previous two trips and this one. “We raised $64,000 out of the goal of $70,000 we had set for ourselves. And if we need the full $70,000, we already have an offer from one of our donors to fill the need,” said Gould, who is serving as chair of this year’s “roll” committee and will be part of the group that’s bound for Washington. “This is all about thanking the Vietnam Era veterans for their service and welcoming them home,” Gould said. “I hope this trip promotes self-healing and gives the ROLLING | SEE PAGE 7 11 Vietnam Era Veterans from Saugus will be honored guests on an expenses-paid trip to Washington, D.C., this month.

Barrie, who was born Anthony Bicchieri, celebrated his 100th birthday shortly after the interview (Friday, July 9). The Boston native had lived in Saugus since 1949. He was an ensign in the U.S. Navy and received his Bachelor of Science degree in chemical engineering in 1943 from Tufts University. He went on to work for 44 years as an engineer at GE in Lynn, where he taught quality control and was a supervisor. But he had another, more fun job in music as the leader of a dance band and a marching band. His music career spanned more than 80 years. He was an accomplished musician playing the violin, saxophone and clarinet and went on to be the featured singer with many top big bands who regularly performed at popular venues throughout New England. He and his wife, Ann (Matrona) Bicchieri, were married for 73 years and had three children, seven grandchildren and five great-grandchildren. Ann, a member of the Saugus High School Class of 1944, is the daughter of the late Arthur Matrona, a concert clarinetist.

Although it’s been years since Tony marched with his band or performed with the dance band, he would sing whenever he got the chance – at local nursing homes and assisted living facilities.

A: At the Totem Pole Ballroom. That’s where I got the surprise of my life. In ’47, I was on top of the world: no ties, no responsibilities. I had my orchestra. I was a chemical engineer at GE. It was a beautiful life. I was 26 years old. I played my violin, saxophone and clarinet. I was having the time of my life. Here’s the shocker: I’m singing there in the Totem Pole Ballroom one night; suddenly, I focused on one girl. That was unlike me. I never bothered with girls. There she was, dancing with a date, having a wonderful time. I lost her in the crowd, but when I got home, I couldn’t get her out of my mind – a girl – and I never bothered with girls before. A few weeks later at the parking lot of GE, I was introduced to a girl. It was this girl who worked in GE in the building that was joined to my building. She worked in the payroll department. And there started a courtship that lasted for two years. We continued the courtship, and the gentlemanly thing to do was to tell her I care about her, so I resorted to music. I chose a song that expressed my view as well as I could. There we were at the back stairs of her home in the wee hours of the morning. And I said, “Ann, I have something to say,” and I ADVOCATE ASKS | SEE PAGE 5 The late Anthony L.

THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – FriDAy, SEpTEmbEr 2, 2022 Page 5 A submarine near Saugus? Local author Stephen Wilk will discuss that unusual event on Sept. 15 at the Saugus public Library (Editor’s Note: The following info is from a press release issued by the Saugus Public Library this week.) H ow did an S-49 Submarine get so close to Saugus? Join us at the library on September 15 at 6:30 p.m. to hear the answer to that question from local author Stephen Wilk. Launched in 1921, Submarine USS S-49 was built for the United States Navy but was sold 10 years later to “Captain” Francis J. Chrestensen, who turned it into a fl oating tourist attraction for which he charged 25 cents admission. One of its stops was Point of Pines in Revere.

I was holding her hand and I was singing “I am falling more in love with you. And day by day, my love continues to grow.” And I gave her a little kiss on the cheek and off I went to get my bus to get back to Medford. We’ve been married 72 years. We’ve known each other for 74 years. Two years later, in 1949, we had a different song right here in St. Margaret’s Church. When we got through with that ceremony, I was on Cloud Nine, never realizing the treasure I just inherited. And I do mean inherited. Q: And the wedding? A: I have lived in Saugus since 1949, when I got married, right here in this house. My father-in-law, Arthur Matrona, was a concert clarinetist. We lived on the second fl oor and her parents lived on the ground fl oor. Q: So, it sounds like you have led a very busy and interesting life. A: Here’s the kicker: With all this notoriety and success, I forget one very, very important thing – my wife. I started to realize that it was because of her. She was always by my side. How much could I tell her how much I love her? Music, another song I sing to this day – Time after Time – I tell myself that I’m so lucky to be loving you, so lucky to be the one that you run to see … in the evening, when the day is through.

The power behind me was one who sacrificed her life. True love demands a sacrifi ce, and she was willing to do that for me. Something had to be done, and she did it and she’s still doing it. Q: How did the name Tony Barrie Marching Band come into being? A: I already had the name Tony Barrie from the Totem Pole Ballroom. And the Saugus Vets Band just didn’t sound right, so I printed on the bass drum “Tony Barrie Band” with my telephone number. And it was born. It just evolved.

Page 6 THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – FriDAy, SEpTEmbEr 2, 2022 Attorney General delays decision on pot article after receiving citizen concerns about the measure By Mark E. Vogler T he state Attorney General’s Office has requested more time to review a Zoning Article approved by this year’s Annual Town Meeting which supports the recreational sale of marijuana. A spokesperson for the Attorney General’s Office said the agency’s Municipal Law Unit has received public comment which has raised concerns about the ordinance, which is also known as Article 36. “I do know we’ve heard from members of the public about the bylaw. We’ve received feedback from the public,” AG spokesperson Tom Dalton said. “There are some concerns we are looking at and we’re going to make sure it complies with Massachusetts Law,” he said. Dalton declined to elaborate and said the information received by the Municipal Law Unit would not be made public until after the review has been complete. Dalton noted that it is standard procedure for all bylaws passed by Town Meetings to be reviewed by the attorney general before they become eff ective. Town Clerk Ellen Schena received a letter dated Aug. 23 from Assistant Attorney General Nicole B. Caprioli advising the town that the Attorney General’s deadline for a decision on Article 36 had been extended for an additional 60 days, with agreement from Saugus Town Counsel John Vasapolli. Caprioli said her unit would issue a decision on Article 36 on or before Oct. 23. At this year’s Annual Town Meeting, members voted 3113 (with fi ve members absent) for Article 36 – an amendment to the town’s Zoning Bylaws to allow for marijuana establishments in town. The Annual Town Meeting voted unanADVOCATE ASKS| FROM PAGE 5 kle, and gangrene had set in, and I wound up losing my leg. I said to the doctors at the hospital, “You have destroyed me.” That’s when I turned into something else, and I said, “Okay, what do I do now?” So, I had a friend who played the electric piano. He and I combined, so we go to retirement homes, rest homes, assisted living homes – to brighten up the day for them. Q: What has been the secret of your success? A: We weren’t interacting with the spectators; nobody was having fun; it was just a job. Something was wrong, so I purchased the Jack Lee Band. I paid Jack Lee’s widow $1,000 in 1949. I still have my fatherin-law’s hat – a Navy offi cer’s hat. I hired a dance band who wanted to have some fun. I imously in 2018 for an article that banned the operation of any marijuana retail establishments in town. But much has changed over the last four years – particularly a decline in town revenue in the midst of two-plus years of coping with the COVID-19 pandemic – which contributed to this week’s overwhelming approval of an article that allows for the recreational sale of marijuana. “We should reap the benefi ts just like any other community,” Selectman Jeff rey Cicolini said, imploring Town Meeting members to enable Saugus to join the growing list of communities in MassachuATTORNEY GENERAL | SEE PAGE 13 wanted to interact with the crowds, so the fi rst [song] I introduced was Happy Birthday to You.

Q: Do you plan to? A: Well, my wife says “No.” And I’m just thinking it’s a lot of effort now for me just to go out: I have to go down 10 stairs; I’m not that steady on my foot anymore.

And the guys had fun. They all enjoyed playing for me, because I made them come alive. Q: What’s your favorite number? A: I guess “Over There” da da da–da da da! It’s alive.

THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – FriDAy, SEpTEmbEr 2, 2022 Page 9 Saugus soccer teams on cusp of 2022 season By Greg Phipps C oming off a season in which it notched a memorable comeback victory in the playoff s, the Saugus High School girls’ soccer team is on the cusp of 2022, sporting a mostly young but eager squad. The Sachems battled hard against St. Mary’s of Lynn before succumbing, 5-3, in an entertaining preseason scrimmage game on Wednesday afternoon at the Christie Serino, Jr. Memorial Athletic Complex. This season, Saugus will be led by players senior Allison Justice, junior Veronica Ortega and sophomore Layla Manderson, to name a few. The Sachems are scheduled to open the regular season next Wednesday, Sept. 7, at Winthrop and then host Gloucester at Anna Parker Field on Friday the 9th. Having lost several key players to graduation from the 2021 campaign, a contingent that included forward Jordan Morris and Felicia Reppucci, this year’s Sachems are hoping to build on their 11-9 season last fall. One characteristic of last season’s team was the penchant for scoring one-sided victories while coming up short in the lower-scoring, closer contests. That trend did not apply to the postseaSaugus Senior Center celebrates birthdays Saugus’s Veronica Ortega maneuvered past a St. Mary’s defender during Wednesday’s preseason scrimmage. son, where the 32nd-seeded Sachems pulled off an exciting, come-from-behind, 2-1 win at Sandwich in the preliminary round of the Div. 3 tournament. Saugus went on to lose in the next round, but the tone for this season may have been set by experiencing some playoff success last fall. For the Saugus boys’ team, the goal will be to try and earn a spot in the postseason tourney. The Sachems just missed making it to the tournament last year. Despite the fact that they fi nished 5-13 overall, they still had a chance to earn a tourney berth in the fi - nal days of the regular season but missed out. Saugus defenseman Layla Manderson pulled away from a St. Mary’s forward on Wednesday. The Sachem boys scrimmaged Ipswich on Wednesday and open the regular season when they host Winthrop next Wednesday, Sept. 7 (scheduled 4 p.m. start) at the Athletic Complex.

Page 10 THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – FriDAy, SEpTEmbEr 2, 2022 The Sounds of Saugus By Mark E. Vogler Here’s to a good school year Welcome back to the students, faculty, staff and administration of Saugus Public Schools. This is the second of five years of Superintendent Erin McMahon’s “shoot for the moon” academic improvement plan. When the MCAS results are released in a few years, that should give an indication of whether the school district is making good progress. Stay tuned. Fall festival hopes prevail Peter A. Rossetti Jr. of the Friends of Breakheart was optimistic this week about Breakheart Reservation hosting a fall festival on Oct. 1, as in past years – despite the fire that’s been burning for several weeks. The state Department of Conservation & Recreation (DCR) has tree-cutting crews set to go into the woods soon to remove the dead wood so that visitors will not be exposed to the dangers of falling trees. “With any kind of luck, they hope to have it open pretty soon so people can enjoy the place,” Rossetti said this week. “The crews were supposed to be in there yesterday (Aug. 30) doing cleanup,” he said. Rossetti noted that most of the fire damage has been on the Wakefield/Main Street side of the park. Meanwhile, Rossetti said he’s confident that the fall festival set for Oct. 1 will not be canceled. “This will be the First Annual Breakheart Family Festival,” Rossetti said. “It had been called the Fall Festival in the past and it was something we had been going to for 20 years. It’s going to be the same idea, but they will do away with pumpkin-decorating, which DCR just doesn’t have the staff to do anymore,” he said. “DCR is downplaying the handson arts and crafts decorating of pumpkins. We do expect face-painting, some music activities and games for kids to play. It will last from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Oct. 1.” Rossetti said he believes the festival will include a petting zoo and some nature exhibits featuring raptors and birds of prey. There will be a mounted unit, either from the State Police or the DCR. The festival will be cosponsored by DCR and the Friends of Breakheart. Old Glory gets some respect We received an email from U.S. Army Vietnam War Era veteran Joe Johnson stating that the tattered and torn American flags that he complained about in last week’s (Aug. 26) edition of The Saugus Advocate have been removed. “The flags have been replaced. Thanks again,” Johnson wrote in an email to the paper this week. “Funny how things happen when you put it in the paper,” he added. There were two flags at the Saugus Middle-High School, another flag at the Saugus Senior Center and another one at World Series Park that were tattered and torn, according to Johnson. He said he approached the paper last week after feeling frustrated that his concerns weren’t being addressed in a timely fashion. This is an issue that has come up before and is certain to happen again as the American flag flies on municipal flagstaffs during windy and stormy weather. It really shouldn’t take a few weeks to resolve. The municipal workers who raise and lower the flag at school and town buildings should have a pretty good idea when it’s time to replace the flag and make the request to their superiors as soon as they notice a flag is ripping or tearing and is too damaged to continue using. Another possible solution is to have the local Boy Scout and Girl Scout troops monitor the condition of flags at various locations. Hopefully, it won’t have to take a veteran to make a public stink about it in the local paper. Legion breakfasts resume next week We received this announcement from Debra Dion Faust, the House Manager of Saugus American Legion Post 210: “At last night’s (Aug. 30) E-Board meeting it was decided that, when we reopen the breakfast at the American Legion for the 2022-23 season on Friday, September 9, with breakfast served from 8 - 9 a.m., we will need to raise the donation for it to $8 rather than $7 due to the great increase in the price of food. “I will be sending out an email to those of our guests who have signed onto a group emailing list laying this out, on Friday, September 2, but I thought you might want the information to include in The Advocate. (And thank you.) ...” Even with the increase, this is welcome news for the folks who look forward to the Friday morning breakfasts at Legion Hall. Bon appétit!

Light refreshments will be served. “Members of the Parson Roby Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution will present a program on their organization which has an emphasis on historical preservation. The national organization was formed in 1890 and is a lineage-based organization whose members can trace their ancestry back to the American Revolution. “The original Parson Roby Chapter was very active in Saugus in the early to mid-twentieth century and was very instrumental in preserving the Appleton Taylor Mansfield house and the Saugus Ironworks site which is now a national park, particularly due to the activism of M. Louise Hawkes who was also president of Saugus Historical Society for approximately 2 decades. “In the later Twentieth Century and the beginning of this one the Saugus chapter was inactive until just a few years ago when the current group of ladies resurrected it. Their most visible recent activity may be the Wreaths Across America project which had a large showing in our town THE SOUNDS | SEE PAGE 11

It’s one of them. That’s what we kick off with. And then we go into “Over There.” And then the Marines hymn. We had a routine. Q: Now, you played a lot of Memorial Day parades here in town [Saugus]? A: The same way I do two jobs. In one day, at least. I would do three if I could get there. Well, we did them all. Q: And Ann? Talk about your wife Ann’s role in your musical career. A: She was a force behind me: encouraging me all the time, helping me. Q: Did she go to all four parades when you did the July Fourth parades? A: Oh, of course! She used to drive the car. Q: Really?

Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (MassDEP) representatives are scheduled to meet with town officials and concerned residents at 6 p.m. on Sept. 28 in the second-floor auditorium at Town Hall for what is expected to be a discussion on the potential future of the ash landfill. The meeting comes at a time when WIN Waste Innovation officials have offered to pay the town up to $18.8 million in return for using the ash landfill for another 25 years. A major obstacle to any deal would be whether MassDEP would allow extending the life of the ash landfill – which is expected to meet its capacity by the end of 2025. A subcommittee of what? When you get right down to it, it doesn’t really matter what town officials call the subcommittee which has been meeting with WIN Waste Innovation officials for about 20 months in an effort to improve communications between the company and the town. There has actually been considerable progress on a multitude of mutual issues, especially on efforts to reduce and to even eliminate the noise emanating from the plant – which has been the subject of numerous complaints from neighborhoods in East Saugus and Revere. The Wheelabrator Subcommittee? Initially, it was created by the Board of Health, which also approved the appointment of its members. When Wheelabrator changed its name to WIN Waste Innovations, people started calling it the Landfill Subcommittee or the WIN Waste Innovations Subcommittee. But it kind of struck me as odd last week when Board of Health Chair William Heffernan said that the subcommittee is not an entity of the Board of Health and did not report to the Board of Health. I attended all of those Board of Health meetings nearly two years ago, and it was pretty clear that the subcommittee was the creation of the Board of Health. The committee voted to establish the subcommittee and then voted to appoint its members. So, why wouldn’t the subcommittee be handing its final report and recommendations over to the Board of Health and not the Board of Selectmen? The only connection between the subcommittee and the Board of Selectmen is that Board of Selectmen Chair Anthony Cogliano made his recommendations to the Board of Health and he co-chaired the subcommittee with Board of Health Chair Heffernan. Perhaps the subcommittee should have been referred to as an ad hoc committee or special study group if the intent was to distance itself from the Board of Health. But, as long as town officials are calling it a subcommittee, they can’t sever its ties to its creator – the Board of Health. We have a winner! Congratulations to Roberta Williams for making the right identification in last week’s “Guess Who Got Sketched” contest. Roberta was one of 14 readers answering correctly. That is the most calls and emails we have received in any week from readers submitting the right answer. But Roberta 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: “The answer to last week’s sketch is local D. J. Alan LaBella! Alan is a dynamic, lively entertainer with a large following of fans for his DJ performances! “Have you ever seen a movie with Adam Sandler Called the ‘The Wedding Singer’?… “That’s a perfect description of what you receive for your party with Alan LaBella! Adam Sandler, Alan La Bella who is who? Lots of fun and positive energy for your event! “Alan lives to put a smile on people’s faces. He loves encouraging others into singing, dancing and having a good time! As people sit in their chairs, Alan has them hold hands to songs, singalongs, swaying in chairs to the music. He conducts music trains and has the party up and moving all around the place! “He has the crowd line dancing, laughing, waving napkins and singing songs in the mike! Alan is 100 percent authentic and he is full of props like glow rings, disco balls, hats, T-shirts and he’s right there dancing along, enjoying every beat of the party! “Alan’s parties and events are usually sold out fast, although he gets gigs by word of mouth … A lot of folks love him as their party Entertainer! He does not advertise and has been an Entertainer for over 40 years. “Originally from East Boston, he’s a graduate of Boston Latin. He’s lived in Saugus for over 30 years. Alan is married to Debbie and will be celebrating a 39-year Anniversary in October! Alan and Debbie have two daughters Ashley and Cassie. Ashley’s two children – Logan and Brady – often help their grandfather ‘Papa’ with his Senior Citizen DJ gigs! “Alan & Debbie will soon be celebrating another grandchild; Cassie is expecting her first baby in October! “You can watch videos online of his parties from various functions and organizations people have posted. Although Alan is private, he can be contacted to host Entertain & DJ parties by calling 1-781-820-8702 and by contacting him on Facebook Alan LaBella. “Alan often does events in East Boston, Lynn Knights of Columbus, Malden Moose Club and many surrounding towns too. He is a very respectable honest man with much integrity. He lets his light shine for others, by providing a platform of energetic fun to forget the stresses of life while being entertained. “Thank you. Happy October Anniversary! “Yours Truly, “The Sketch Artist” This week’s “shout-outs” It’s always a great week when we receive multiple “shout-outs,” as we did this week. Board of Selectmen Chair Anthony Cogliano offered a posthumous “shout-out” for the late Tony Barrie, the renown Saugus musician and bandleader who passed away this week (Aug. 28): “I knew Tony my entire life...he was part of our Bristow Street Family. He made the annual feast special with his band. The thing I’ll always remember about Tony was his smile – it was permanently affixed to his face. He will surely be missed by all.” As a special tribute to Tony, we have reprinted an interview we had conducted with him in his living room last summer for “The Advocate Asks.” Joe Johnson observed an act of kindness for our fourlegged friends who have been suffering under the summer heat: “A Shout out to Anthony Vasi owner of Vasi AC for helping our furry friends stay hydrated along the rail trail.

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. “Zoom” Book Study The Rev. 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 theviolenceprojectbook.com, “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 Nicole Hockley, the cofounder and managing director of Sandy Hook Promise, “If you ever wondered how can we stop mass shootings, this is the book for you. By mixing compelSchool and Essex streets.” Joan Allbee nominated “Gloria’s husband, Joe Johnson” for “a BIG SHOUTOUT”.... “for having the courage to speak out about the condition of our American flags!” “It is because of men and women like U.S. Army Vietnam Veteran Joe Johnson that we are able to fly our American flag freely to begin with. Let’s show some respect as Veteran Joe Johnson asked for and many voiceless want, and hoist down and retire the ol’ tattered flags of Glory.; Post new American Flags to rise high on duty! Much gratitude.” ling 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.

However, we may be anticipating lower temperatures and rain with a bit more than the usual enthusiasm. The fires at Breakheart and Lynn Woods have temporarily taken away some of our green refuges, and we will certainly be seeing big differences in the forest canopy over the long term as a result of the fires and this long drought. Deer and other wildlife have had to seek water and shelter beyond their usual stomping grounds. It has been quite a contrast to the unusually rainy summer of 2021. A few of my neighbors have asked for ideas for good late-blooming plants that are drought tolerant. Once established, members of the orpine or stonecrop family (Crassulaceae) are extremely well adapted to shallow soil and dry conditions and will still look perky when everything around them is wilting from drought. Members of the stonecrop family are succulents. The leaves are thicker than typical foliage of most plants, and this is because they are actually storing water in the cells so they can withstand longer droughts. Autumn Joy Stonecrop (Hylotelphium ‘Autumn Joy’, formerly known as Sedum ‘Autumn Joy’), is just beginning to bloom now. The leaves emerge in early spring, and by midsummer the flower stalks have formed but remain green for several months. A slight pinkish blush is just starting to ATTORNEY GENERAL | FROM PAGE 6 setts that are tapping into recreational marijuana sales as a lucrative revenue stream. About a third of the members expressed opposition to allowing recreational pot shops to locate in Saugus. Those voting against Article 36 were Mark J. Bell, Susan C. Dunn and Susan Paloma of show now above the green foliage. The flowers are produced in very dense clusters and are very attractive to pollinators. They are a soft pink through September, and by October the flowers begin to turn bronze and eventually turn brown and can remain through the winter on the dry tan stems. Also in October, the leaves turn pale yellow and drop by November. The dried flower heads can be left in the garden through the winter or snipped off in fall. This plant can give some structure to the perennial garden throughout the year and tolerates full sun or part shade. Despite a change in the genus name from Sedum to Hylotelephium, many people continue to refer to this plant as sedum. Another common name you will occasionally encounter is orpine. Also in the stonecrop family is another group of succulent leaved, hardy plants that survive drought quite well. They are often called hens and chickens (Sempervivum spp. and Jovibarba spp.), although another name for them is houseleek. When you look at this plant it usually resembles a large rosette of greenish or reddish thick leaves, with a few smaller rosettes of foliage attached to them, much like chickens hiding under the wings of the mother hen. These offsets are the primary way they reproduce, rather than by seed. The smaller plants can be removed and placed in soil and will grow on their own and eventually become “hens” surrounded by their own “chicks.” The othPrecinct 1; Christine M.

They thrive in very shallow soil, or even sand, and are good choices for rock gardens. Once a rosette produces its stalk of flowers it dies, but the smaller offsets survive and may live for many more years. The scientific name “Sempervivum” means “always alive” – an appropriate name since they can survive so many challenging conditions. Other members of this family gardeners might recognize are some popular tropical plants used as houseplants, such as jade plant (Crassula ovata) and several species of kalanchoe (Kalanchoe Provisions to protect the public The following conditions apply for marijuana establishments within the Business Highway Sustainable Development Zoning District (BHSD).

In both contests, the Sachems held the lead late in the game. Against Greater Lawrence, Saugus gave up a touchdown on the final play of the game, and Lawrence then pulled out a successful two-point conversion to steal the win. Ahead 6-0 with just three minutes to go at Salem, Saugus was scored upon twice in the final minutes and fell short to the Witches.
