Police say a Chevrolet Impala driven by a Lynn man caused the accident by driving southbound and into the path of a 2018 Dodge Journey SUV, killing himself and a passenger in the SUV. (Courtesy photos by Lt. Damian Drella of The Saugus Fire Department to The Saugus Advocate) of the wrong-way car and a female passenger in the vehicle he struck – according to police. A preliminary investigation determined the Impala first clipped the rear end of a box truck before crashing headon into a 2018 Dodge Journey SUV occupied by two adults on Route 1’s northbound side in the area of the Army Barracks store in Saugus. Police identified the driver of the wrongway vehicle as Luis Gallego, 29, of Lynn. Troopers rushed to the scene and found Gallego, the sole occupant of the wrong-way vehicle, dead inside the Impala, which caught fire. They found the occupants of the Journey, a man and woman, with serious injuries. The driver of the Journey, a 51-year-old Peabody man, was transported to Massachusetts General Hospital with serious injuries. His passenger was transported to MelroseWakefield Hospital, where she was pronounced dead. Police later identified the victim as Evelyn Pinto, 48, of Peabody. The driver of the box truck was not injured. The facts and circumstances of the crash, including the reason for the wrong-way operation, remain under investigation by Troop A of the Massachusetts State Police with the assistance of the State Police Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Section and the State Police Crime Scene Services Section. All three lanes northbound were shut down for more than two hours as a result of the crash. They reopened at around 6 a.m. Earlier last month there was a crash in Lynnfield near the Peabody line caused by a Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck that was going south in the northbound lane. Thomas Neirinckx, 21, of Saugus, was arrested on numerous charges, including drunk driving and driving under the influence of drugs after his pickup truck crashed into a car and allegedly seriously injured an elderly couple, according to police.

THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, September 6, 2019 Page 3 Founders Day fun Tomorrow Saugus celebrates “a family tradition” that’s going strong after 39 years By Mark E. Vogler t’s the only time Saugus residents get to watch a local politician or town official go to jail – and then pay his or her bail if they’re feeling in a generous and giving mood. Selectmen, School Committee members, school superintendents and other town officials don’t mind wearing jailhouse clothes while sitting in the Saugus “Band-its” Jail on Central Street, waiting for somebody to “free” them if it helps raise money for the Saugus Band Parents Association. Town officials will again be among the primary targets of the “Band-its” Sheriff Department deputies next Saturday, Sept. 14. Of course, there were concerns yesterday about whether heavy rain expected today and tomorrow will lead to a rare cancellation or postponement of the Saugus hometown celebration. “It’s a wonderful opportuniI ty to come out and see your friends and neighbors – so nice,” Selectman Jennifer D’Eon said. “If we don’t get rained out.” Town Manager Scott Crabtree told selectmen at Wednesday night’s meeting that town officials would have a better idea today and tomorrow (Saturday) on whether Founders Day can go on. Meanwhile, organizers are starting to think about how town officials and local celebrities can get jailed for a good cause. “When I was little, I was so terrified of that jail,” recalled Crystal Cakounes, program coordinator for the Saugus Youth & Recreation Department. “I used to worry – are they overseeing the planning of the special event, which has been in the making since last spring. The Youth Commission will A PRISONER FOR A CAUSE: Saugus Public Schools Superintendent Dr. David DeRuosi, Jr. being booked in the makeshift jailhouse at last year’s Founders Day Celebration. (Saugus Advocate file Photo by Mark E. Vogler) going to arrest me? Of course, now, I think it’s a great way to raise money. And it’s a very popular part of the day,” she said. The Saugus Band-its Jail is just one of many fun activities and fundraising events scheduled for tomorrow when the town shuts down Saugus Center for six hours so residents and visitors can enjoy the best of Saugus. There will be music, entertainment, arts and crafts, an assortment of food, a “fun area” for kids to play in and a DJ presiding. A wooden stage is already set up at the bottom of the steps of Town Hall, where several local dance studios and theatre companies will perform. Cakounes – with the help of her staff, representatives from many town departments and a group of volunteers – has been arrive at about 5:30 a.m. tomorrow, directing vendors where they are supposed to set up. Meanwhile, police will set up barricades to block off traffic from the rotary near Town Hall, up to Central Street, toward the Saugus Iron Works. Taylor, Parker and Prospect Streets will also be blocked off for the town festival, which will begin at 9 a.m. and last through 3 p.m. Founders Day began in 1980 – modeled after a country market that was part of the town’s 350th bicentennial celebration – according to Donna Gould, who has been recognized as the organizer or founder of Founders Day. The marquis event, which happens at noon, is the Persons of the Year Awards ceremony. A man and woman – selected by past recipients of the award – will be honored for their volunteer public and community service and personal contributions for the betterment of the community. They will join more than 50 departed and living Saugonians who have been honored at Founders Day, going back to 1989. A summary of the award notes that each presentation is made: “In recognition of their dedication to the Town of Saugus. This award truly exemplifies the outstanding spirit of our Founding Fathers.” In an interview with The Saugus Advocate several years ago, Gould noted the striking view that greets first-time attendees of Founders Day. “When you FUN | SEE PAGE 3 3 Locations Saugus Groceria, 190 Main Street 781-231-9599 West End, Boston, 75 Blossom Court 617-227-6141 Seaport Boston, 1 Park Lane 857-366-4640 Friday, September 20 at 9 PM New England's Tribute to Bob Seger LIVE BULLET FALL AMERICAN MUSIC SERIES Thursday, September 26 at 9 PM FRED EAGLESMITH PREPARED FOODS BUTCHER SHOP BAKERY Friday, September 27 at 9 PM BOB WOLFMAN BAND Saturday, September 21 at 9 PM MASS TIME & AGAIN GIRLS Start Your Weekend at the Marina Dance Party!

THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, September 6, 2019 Page 5 Saugus receives $33,000 state grant to help assist climate change actions (Editor’s Note: This info is from a press release issued by Town Manager Scott C. Crabtree’s Office this week.) S augus Town Manager Scott C. Crabtree announced that the state’s Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs awarded the Town of Saugus $33,000 through the Municipal Vulnerability Preparedness (MVP) Planning Grant Program of Fiscal Year 2019 to assist in planning for resiliency and to implement key climate change adaptation actions. Town officials investigated and researched assistance opportunities following an increase in inland and coastal flooding due to reportedly more intense and frequent storms in recent years. Officials applied for and were awarded $33,000 through the MVP grant as part of an effort to mitigate any future flooding impacts on residents and the Town’s infrastructure. This grant funding will provide the necessary resources for the Town to work to identify hazards, challenges and strengths, and prepare for future climate adaptation actions to address current vulnerabilities. This will also allow the Town to update its 2014 Hazard Mitigation Plan. The MVP program provides support for cities and towns in Massachusetts to plan for resiliency and implement key climate change adaptation actions for resiliency. The state awards communities with funding to complete vulnerability assessments and develop action-oriented resiliency plans. The grant and designation program, which builds on Governor Charlie Baker’s Executive Order 569 as well as other administration-led state and local partnerships, provides communities with technical support, climate change data and planning tools to identify hazards and develop strategies to improve resilience. “I am extremely grateful that Governor Charlie Baker, Lieutenant Governor Karyn Polito, and the Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs awarded the Town of Saugus grant funding for hazard and vulnerability preparedness,” said Town Manager Crabtree. “This financial assistance will provide us with the necessary resources to help find solutions to alleviate flooding that can impact our residents and our community’s infrastructure, and to assist the Town in updating its Hazard Mitigation Plan.” Saugus is one of 27 communities awarded funding from the Baker-Polito Administration during this round of grants. The MVP program helps communities to: • Define extreme weather and natural and climate-related hazards • Understand how their community might be impacted by climate change with a Massachusetts specific climate change clearinghouse with the latest science and data • Identify existing and future vulnerabilities and strengths • Develop and prioritize actions for the community • Identify opportunities to take action to reduce risk and build resilience • Implement key actions identified through the planSaugus church to host lawn party on Founders Day S ave the Date: Founder’s Day, Saturday, September 14, from 11-2 p.m. First Congregational Church, United Church of Christ, Saugus Center, will be hosting a lawn party at 300 Central St. for Founder’s Day.

To participate in the MVP program, communities first apply for Planning Grants, which are used to complete a community-based workshop process to identify key climate-related hazards, vulnerabilities and strengths, and prioritize next steps to address climate change impacts. After successfully completing the planning process, municipalities are designated as an MVP program community. Designated MVP communities can then apply for MVP Action Grants to implement key priorities and projects identified through the planning process.

Vogler ational Grid is getting better at paying its outstanding bills on time – but not good enough for the Board of Selectmen. “I’m not trying to bust chops here,” Selectman Scott Brazis said at Wednesday night’s meeting before he and his colleagues voted to continue a motion approved back in July – to put all future pole installation requests from NaN tional Grid on hold until the utility pays the town more than the $47,000 it owes for public safety details at its work sites. “It’s getting better, but it’s not there,” Board of Selectmen Chair Debra Panetta said after recent records showed National Grid’s balance of unpaid bills is still $16,364.70. “I think the last time you came before us, we were pretty direct,” Panetta said to a National Grid representative.

The funds constitute the money received from ratepayers under the current Cable Television Renewal License Agreement and held in the enterprise fund. “The DOR [state Department of Revenue] has new requirements that local cable companies like ourselves set up enterprise accounts,” SCTV Board of Directors President Albert J.

He also stressed that the new regulations related to the enterprise account which now require Town Meeting approval should satisfy those town residents who were seeking more scrutiny and transparency of the local cable TV funds and how they are spent. Future requests to use money out of the enterprise account will require a Town Meeting vote, according to William Solomon, attorney for the SCTV Board of Directors. As a result of the new state regulations, the cable board will be switching from a calendar year budget to a fiscal year (July 1 to June 30) budget. The current plans are for SCTV to move into the Saugus Historical Society building at 30 Main St., once it vacates its current quarters at the back of the existing Saugus High School, which is set to be demolished next year. Since last summer, representatives of the Saugus Historical Society and Saugus Cable TV have been talking about a mutual arrangement that would satisfy the needs of both groups. Board of Selectmen Vice Chair Jeffrey Cicolini told DiNardo during Wednesday night’s meeting that he thinks the Saugus Historical Society building is the best location available to accommodate SCTV. It’s a relationship that accommodates both nonprofit organizations, he noted. “I feel this investment is not only needed, but warranted,” Cicolini said. But, when it came to a vote, Selectman Scott Brazis opposed the warrant article that would appropriate $550,000 The board voted to continue its July vote to the board’s next meeting, which is on Sept. 18. Selectmen will resume approval of applications for pole installations as early as the next meeting, or as soon as National Grid pays off its outstanding bills. “We aren’t going to allow a telephone pole to be put in the ground,” Brazis vowed at the July meeting. “The answer is going to be ‘No!’” he said. from the PEG Access Enterprise Fund for construction of a PEG access studio or facility. “I support the cable station and everything the board is doing,” Brazis said in an interview after the meeting. “But I can’t support spending that kind of money on a new place. I still think they could find a temporary place for a year and a half or two years,” he said. Brazis believes that SCTV could have found temporary or more permanent quarters in one of the municipal school buildings that could be available within a couple of years. “But I do think Al and his board have worked very hard on this. And I don’t have any problem with them upgrading the equipment and their operating expenses,” Brazis said. In addition to the three articles related to SCTV, the Special Town Meeting will consider a fourth measure proposed by Town Manager Scott C. Crabtree to appropriate money to replace air-conditioning units in the Public Safety Building and Town Hall. The Finance Committee will meet soon to review the four articles and offer recommendations for the upcoming Special Town Meeting.

(Courtesy Photo to The Saugus Advocate) kraine-born artist Olga Gernovski, of Peabody, will be the guest at a September 14 reception open to the public. Her paintings are on view in the Saugus Public Library’s Reading Room (first floor) during the months of September and October. Her paintings are held in private collections in many countries, including the United States, Switzerland, Holland, Russia and Ukraine. Gernovski’s art education began in the Ukraine. She trained intensively in painting and drawing for several years. In 1994, Olga and her family moved to Boston, where she completed her formal education at the Art Institute of Boston. Since then Olga has studied and trained with such masters as Kim English, Dennis Perrin and Peggi Kroll-Roberts. U Over time, Olga has developed a unique personal style with bold brush strokes and deliberate color application. “I hope that when people are looking at my paintings they feel the acuteness of a red blossom, the transparency of glass, the rushing forces of nature and the thrill of human emotions. At those moments… lines flow as music and every artwork is a confession.” —Olga Gernovski You can meet Gernovski and other local artists at a free public reception which will be held on Saturday, September 14, from 2 to 4 p.m. in the Reading Room. Light refreshments will be served. Editor’s Note: Arts @ the SPL is made possible through a partnership between the Saugus Public Library and Galleries at Lynn Arts (GALA).

A: A lot of it, really, kind of falls into place, because we have been doing it for so long. It’s kind of like a puzzle, when it’s all said and done, and we are trying to make the map. We try to make sure that like items aren’t close by. Q: Assume that you are talking to a Saugus resident who has never been to a Founders Day. Please give me five good reasons why you think they should attend. A: To come out and see familiar faces after the summer ends. Come support local businesses. Support all of the school groups and sports teams. They all do fundraising. It’s a huge fundraising effort for all of the school groups, the kids, the youth groups. It’s a fun time for all of the kids. Right? What else? Q: The performances? A: Yep. Entertaining. The dance studios kind of come together and do really cool things. Yeah, I think it’s really a great day. Q: And then at High Noon? A: Is what? Q: You have the Citizens of the Year … A: Oh, the Persons of the Year – we don’t handle that. It’s still done by Donna [Gould, the town’s founder of Founders Day] and Kathy Blasingame. But they will still be there at noon. Q: Yes. It’s still one of the highlights of the day. Anything new this year? A: The Sachimes, the a cappella group from Saugus High; they do a great job. They’ll be performing at 2 o’clock. They’ve never performed before and this is the first for them. There’s a couple of new vendors – selling homemade goods – that are new. For the most part, I think everything is kind of the same. Like I said, it’s a big fundraising effort for a lot of the school groups. I think they come back every year. One of the girls was telling me, “It’s one of our best fundraising events and I can’t wait for the day.” So, it’s kind of the same thing every year for them to make money for their groups – starting off the school year with a little money in their funds. Q: And this is the 39th year. A: Is it? Wow! Yeah. Donna Gould did it for so long. Q: And how many of these Founders Days have you been to? A: Probably as many as I can remember, and I’m not going to tell you how old I am! So, you can just use your imagination. I think I went to almost every single one when I was in college. I’d come home and see all of my friends. Q: Do you have some pretty good memories of past Founders Days that you attended as a kid? A: Well, I used to perform on the stage. And I would always be scared that I was going to fall off of it. I twirled a baton when I was little. Seeing your friends, that was the big thing. Before school starts, right after school starts, you are excited to see all of your friends that you haven’t seen all summer. I remember when I was little, I was scared of the jail because I was always scared that I was going to get locked into it. Q: And that goes back a while … The Saugus “Band-Its” Jail. A: Yeah. It didn’t happen for a long time, and now it’s back. It used to make me nervous. But I used to love Founders Day – buying special crafts and stuff. Q: Do you have any special memory of Founders Day as a kid? A: I just used to like to perform with my friends – with the baton. And that is always so much fun, other than being afraid I was going to fall off the stage. But I did like to perform. I’m a big ham! Q: How many years now has the Youth & Rec Department had charge of Founders Day? A: I would say at least 15 years. We helped Donna [Gould] at first, and then she finally stepped away. At the beginning, Donna was still here and we were assisting her. Q: Anything else that you would like to share? A: I would just like to thank everybody that puts in all of their hard work. These two girls – Emily Grant and Emily Kay – put in a lot of work for me this year. They were key behind the scenes, doing a lot of the paperwork and doing a lot of the spreadsheets, which was a huge help for me. And then we want to thank the town manager for all of his continued support of all the events – and then to all of the town departments that help us out. It really is a lot of work. A lot of people put in a lot of work and give the extra effort to go out of their way to make this day really nice for the residents, especially Greg, who is one of the hardest working men I know, and I want to make sure everybody gets a big thank you for their help. I hope all of the residents come and have a great day. Hopefully, the weather will hold up for us and everyone will have a great time. I know I will, because this will be my baby’s first Founders Day. I truly hope everyone is able to make it out on September 7th for this wonderful Saugus tradition. Q: Okay, Emily Grant, what would you say about Founders Day – what makes it special? Do you want to share your thoughts? ASKS | SEE PAGE 10

Everybody came to Founders Day, and you could have a mini-reunion with everybody. And that was the best part of it,” she said. “A little bit of something for everybody” Founders Day is a potpourri of entertainment, food and fun served up Saugus-style for residents of all ages – from tots, who love to sit on a street curb to devour some fried dough – to senior citizens, who might like to treat themselves to something sweet. “My grandmother loved it,” Cakounes recalled. “She couldn’t wait for Founders Day and the strawberry shortcake,” she said. “I think there’s a little bit of something for everybody,” said Cakounes, remembering how ASKS | FROM PAGE 8 A: I used to have fun with the sand art.

I know I love to watch the performers,” she said. Board of Selectmen Chair Debra Panetta called it “a family tradition” that several generations of Saugonians have enjoyed. “Founders Day is a day of celebrating everything Saugus,” Panetta told The Saugus Advocate. “It’s one of my favorite days of the year, where we get to see our neighbors, visit nonprofit and craft tables staffed by our friends, eat delicious food and watch great entertainment on stage. We have the opportunity to support our schools with the raffles, games, team spirit merchandise and enjoying the ‘Fun Area,’” she said.

THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, September 6, 2019 Page 11 Leaving early By The Old Sachem, Bill Stewart R ecently Andrew Luck decided to leave professional football while still relatively healthy. The quarterback of the Indianapolis Colts retired at 29 years old because of the wear and tear on his body. This reminded me of three others who decided to retire while still able to live life in the best of terms. The next three weeks I will write about Sandy Koufax, the lefty pitcher of the Brooklyn/Los Angeles Dodgers, Jim Brown of the Cleveland Browns and Barry Sanders of the Detroit Lions. Sandy Koufax pitched in the major leagues from 1955 to 1966 and retired at 30 years old. He told the world after the 1966 season that he had an arthritic pitching elbow, his left. He had just finished a season where he had won his third pitching Triple Crown: wins, ERA and strikeouts. Sandy was born December 30, 1935, in Brooklyn, N.Y., to a Jewish family. He was born to Evelyn (Lichtenstein) and Jack Braun, and his parents divorced when he was three years old. Evelyn later married Irving Koufax and Sandy was raised in the Borough Park section of Brooklyn. When Evelyn remarried, Sandy was nine years old and the family moved to the Long Island suburb of Rockville Center. While in high school the family moved again, this time back to the Bensonhurst section of Brooklyn. He attended Lafayette High School in Brooklyn, but was unable to play – the teachers at the time refused to coach school sports because of the lack of payment. He ended up playing basketball at the Edith and Carl Marks Jewish Community House of Bensonhurst. AT 15 years old he joined a local youth baseball league as a catcher, then as a first baseman and finally as a pitcher. As a senior he pitched for Lafayette High School and was scouted by Milt Laurie, who recruited Sandy to pitch for his Parkviews in the Coney Island Sports League. After high school he went to the University of Cincinnati and became a walk-on for the freshman basketball team. In the spring of 1954, he became a pitcher for the varsity baseball team and went 3 and 1 with an ERA of 2.81, 54 strikeouts and 30 walks in 32 innings. This impressed a scout for the Dodgers, Bill Zinser, but the club didn’t move on Koufax. He tried out for the New York Giants at the Polo Grounds and was ignored. Sandy tried out for the Pittsburgh Pirates and was also ignored. Al Campanis, a scout for the Dodgers who had seen Sandy pitch at Lafayette, invited him to Ebbets Field, the home of the Dodgers, and with the front office people watching as Koufax tossed a workout. Sandy was signed for a $6,000 salary, a bargain that included a $14,000 signing bonus. Because of his signing bonus amount, the Dodgers were required to keep him on the roster for two years, and optioned Tommy Lasorda to the minor leagues. Koufax had a slow start in the majors: His first start was on July 6, 1955, and only lasted four and two thirds innings, giving up eight walks. He waited almost two months before facing the Cincinnati Reds and won, 7-0, only allowing two Settipane Insurance Agency Of Boston |Since 1969 209 Broadway, Revere 781-284-1100 Auto • Homeowners Call for the Lowest Quote! “Experience Makes the Difference” Tenants • Commercial Se Habla Español * Free Parking Bill Stewart The Old Sachem hits, and his career was destined. In the offseason he enrolled in Columbia University School of General Studies to study architecture, evenings. He didn’t pitch for the Dodgers in the postseason in which the Dodgers won the World Series, and after the final out of the last game in Brooklyn, he immediately travelled to a class at Columbia. The 1956 season wasn’t much different, and the Dodgers sent him to Puerto Rico to pitch in winter ball. The management wanted to see if he was now worth the cash they had spent on him, and on May 26 he started against the Chicago Cubs in Wrigley Field. He struck out thirteen and tossed a complete game – yes, pitchers did that in this era. For the next three seasons he occasionally was picked to start and the results were mediocre. He asked the Dodgers to trade him in 1960 because he wasn’t getting enough playing time. He thought about quitting baseball and spending time with a company that he had invested in, an electronics company. He spent time working out after the season and reported in 1961 in the best condition of his young life. He had an 18 and 13 record in 1961 and led the league in strikeouts with 269, setting a new record surpassing Christy Mathewson’s 267. He was an all-star between 1961 and 1966. His last appearance was on October 2, 1967, for the Los Angeles Dodgers, who had migrated from Brooklyn previously. Koufax had a won-loss record of 165 and 87 in Major League Baseball. He pitched for four World Series Champions and was selected the Series MVP in 1963 and 1965. Sandy pitched to three Triple Crowns while securing the MLB winningest pitcher in 1963, 1965 and 1966, and was selected as the Cy Young Award winner all three times. Koufax was the National League MVP in 1963. In the 1966 season he pitched three starts in eight days, the third was the second game of the World Series against the Baltimore Orioles. The Dodgers were swept in four games. While most pitchers throw with a three-quarter motion, Koufax preferred the throw over the top, which increases velocity but varies the moveOLD SACHEM | SEE PAGE 14

Page 12 THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, September 6, 2019 Flu vaccine now available at all Stop & Shop pharmacies Customers encouraged to get annual vaccine before flu season begins top & Shop is encouraging customers to get their annual flu vaccination before flu activity traditionally picks up in the fall. The grocery chain’s 256 pharmacies have the vaccine in stock, and pharmacists can vaccinate patients without an appointment. This season Stop & Shop has a few types of flu vaccine available, including the quadrivalent vaccine and two flu vaccines specifically designed for people age 65 and older. “Stop & Shop is pleased to be able to offer flu vaccinations to our customers while they shop,” said Stop & Shop’s Director of Pharmacy Operations, Katie Thornell. “We know that the flu vaccine is the most effective way to prevent the flu, so our pharmacy teams are poised and ready to provide vaccinations when it’s most convenient for our customers and their family members.” The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention S (CDC) recommends that everyone age six months and up receive the flu vaccination every flu season, ideally by the end of October. In particular, people who are at higher risk of developing complications from the flu, such as seniors, pregnant women, children and people with compromised immune systems, should receive the vaccination. It takes about two weeks for the antibodies that protect against the flu to develop, so customers are encouraged to get the flu vaccine sooner rather than later. “Customers should get the flu vaccination before flu cases begin to appear and spread in their community,” said Thornell. “There’s no better time than now to get the flu shot.” The flu vaccine is considered a preventative health service under most insurance plans, and the cost is FLU VACCINE | SEE PAGE 20 Melrose resident wins Labor Day of Luxury Giveaway at Encore Boston Harbor Lucky winner has the option of a 2019 McLaren 570S Spider or $100,000 cash prize E ncore Boston Harbor recently announced that Melrose resident Michael M. was selected to win a brand-new 2019 McLaren 570S Spider or $100,000 cash prize as part of its Labor Day of Luxury Giveaway. “I just started jumping and screaming,” said Michael in a Facebook post on the Everything Encore Boston Harbor fan group. “It was awesome and obviously something I will cherish and tell over and over again.” On Sunday, Sept. 1, guests deposited their drawing tickets into a drawing drum for the chance to win the McLaren, cash or FREECREDIT.

Jez Lowe to open at Linden Tree on Sept. 28 T he Linden Tree will open its 35th season of monthly acoustic music on Saturday, September 28 at 8 p.m. The show will feature an encore performance of one of England’s finest songwriters, Jez Lowe. He has long been one of the UK’s busiest folk performers, playing for audiences the world over, either solo (with guitar, cittern and harmonica accompaniment) or with his band The Bad Pennies. In 2015, his Men At Words tour of North America saw Lowe joining forces with James Keelaghan and Archie Fisher for much-acclaimed concerts across Canada and the USA. And as part of The Pitmen Poets (with Bob Fox, Benny Graham and Billy Mitchell), Lowe helped to rekindle the fire in the tradition of mining songs and culture of his native region in a series of sold-out theatre performances around the UK. Recently Lowe published “The Corly Croons,” a novel that delves into the background of the circle of songwriters who came to be known as The Bards of the Tyne. Lowe unravels the mystery that lay beneath the comic songs and gentle ballads of that time. Over the last couple of decades, the likes of Fairport Convention, Cherish the Ladies, Tom McConville, The Clancy Brothers and scores more have queued up to adopt his songs for their own repertoires. It’s no wonder that no less than Richard Thompson has called him “The best singer songwriter to come out of the UK for a long time,” and personally invited him to play at Thompson’s Meltdown Festival at London’s South Bank Centre in 2010. Lowe’s contributions to the BBC Radio Ballads has cemented this reputation, with a Sony Radio Award among the many accolades coming its way. A live BBC Radio 2 broadcast In November 2018 to commemorate The Great War Centenary featured Lowe alongside the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra and narrator Sir Michael Morpurgo. As BBC Radio DJ Mike Harding said recently, “No one else writes or sounds like Lowe”, and chances are, even if you’ve never heard the man himself, you’ll have heard his songs, sung at festivals, club gigs, open mics or on CD, by the great and good, the professional and the enthusiast, the young and not-soyoung. What higher accolade could a songwriter hope for? Tickets are $20 (WUMB members $2 off when showing your card). Tickets for those under age 18 are $10.

THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, September 6, 2019 Page 13 Residents encouraged to prepare during Emergency Preparedness Month G overnor Charlie Baker has proclaimed September 2019 as Emergency Preparedness Month to encourage individuals and families to prepare for emergencies and disasters. The Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency (MEMA), the Department of Public Health (DPH) and the American Red Cross of Massachusetts, together with their partners, will promote emergency preparedness throughout the month through various outreach initiatives. These efforts are part of a month-long nationwide preparedness campaign to encourage residents to take simple steps to better prepare themselves, their homes, their businesses and their communities. “As Massachusetts and the rest of the nation continue to confront natural disasters that cause major disruptions for our communities, we encourage residents to spend time this September preparing for a potential emergency or disaster,” said Baker. “Increased preparedness will improve public health and safety, and can help minimize property damage and the economic impact of when disaster strikes.” “Through the Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency (MEMA), the Department of Public Health and other state agencies, our administration remains committed to working with cities and towns across the Commonwealth and other government partners to strengthen our preparedness for the next disaster,” said Lieutenant Governor Karyn Polito. “We encourage the Commonwealth’s residents, communities and businesses to take steps to prepare before the next emergency.” “The best defense for an emergency is being properly prepared,” said Massachusetts Health and Human Services Secretary Marylou Sudders. “As we recognize Emergency Preparedness Month, we encourage individuals now and every day to take proactive steps to safeguard their future health should a disaster occur.” “When it comes to preparedness, there is no time like the present,” said Massachusetts Public Health Commissioner Monica Bharel, MD, MPH. “This September, take a few moments to think about the specific needs your family may have in the event of an emergency, such as a blackout or severe weather, and how you can prepare now to ensure those needs are met.” “Preparedness Month is an important reminder that we should all take time now to be ready in case an emergency occurs,” said American Red Cross of Massachusetts CEO Holly Grant. “Talking with our families and households about what to do in case something happens gives everyone peace of mind. Small steps taken now, like making a home escape plan, can make a huge difference when a disaster strikes” “There are a variety of hazards and threats that can cause damage and impact residents in Massachusetts,” said Massachusetts Public Safety and Security Secretary Thomas Turco. “Residents can improve their personal safety and build community resilience by knowing their risks, preparing for them in advance, and knowing what to do in an emergency.” “Emergency Preparedness Month is an opportunity to prepare for the emergencies that may occur in communities across the Commonwealth,” said MEMA Director Samantha Phillips. “Recent tornadoes in July have shown the importance of receiving timely emergency alerts and taking protective actions during dangerous severe weather. September is a time to refocus our attention on ensuring we have a prepared and resilient Commonwealth.” During September, MEMA, DPH and the Red Cross will share information on their respective social media accounts about emergency preparedness topics, including financial preparedness, emergency planning, youth preparedness, planning for those with access and functional needs, and ways to get involved in community preparedness. These agencies and organizations will host a joint Facebook Live preparedness event on September 9. MEMA will also support various emergency preparedness events across the state, and the Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) will feature signage along highways to raise awareness. MEMA’s website, www.mass. gov/mema, features information about the hazards common in Massachusetts and resources to help prepare for emergencies: • Be Informed and Receive Emergency Alerts • Plan for Emergencies and Disasters • Build an Emergency Kit • Get Involved. Residents of the Commonwealth are encouraged to participate in preparedness activities and use these preparedness resources to help prepare themselves, their family, their property and their community. Leaders celebrate rising labor movement at annual Labor Day breakfast M ore than 500 union leaders and activists, along with key community allies, were joined by Massachusetts political leaders at the Greater Boston Labor Council’s annual Labor Day Breakfast to celebrate recent campaign victories for workers across the Commonwealth. These included the heavily publicized strikes at Marriott hotels, National Grid, Stop & Shop and the Martha’s Vineyard Transit Authority. Strike activity is on the rise across the nation, yielding a growing number of victories for unions and their supporters, and Massachusetts is no exception. Union approval ratings continue to climb and are now at 64 percent according to a recent Gallup poll, one of the highest marks achieved in the last 50 years. Labor leaders point to a recognition among the general public and working families that unions are needed more than ever in an era of growing wage inequality. The results of a recent MIT study indicated that the number of U.S. workers “who don’t belong to unions but say they would join one if they could is higher than it was two decades ago.” These findings have bolstered calls among leaders for labor law reforms that would make it easier for workers to join unions without employer retaliation. In addition to citing victories for workers across the state in recent months, Greater Boston Labor Council Executive Secretary-Treasurer Richard Rogers plans to call for unity among the labor movement in the 2020 election. Moves by President Donald Trump to weaken labor protections and to provide handouts to the ultra-wealthy will be a focal point for Rogers and other speakers. “I believe it is incumbent upon every union leader both national and local to embrace the eventual Democratic nominee,” said Rogers. “We have a moral obligation to do everything in our power to educate our members to ensure the Democratic nominee receives an overwhelming vote from organized labor. Trump’s unabashed racism and sexism should be an automatic disqualifier. His tax plan put more money in the pocket of the 1% and worsened the crisis of economic inequality. His deregulatory agenda includes stacking the National Labor Relations Board against unions, turning the Department of Labor over to enemies of workers, further eroding workplace safety protections by weakening OSHA, and repealing every executive order President Obama issued to help level the playing field.” “At this time in our history, we are up against some of the darkest and most urgent moments of our lifetimes. We must continue to build worker power so we can fight for our values like healthcare, retirement and dignity in the workplace,” said Massachusetts AFL–CIO President Steven Tolman.

Page 14 THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, September 6, 2019 Saugus Catholics Saugus Sachems Girls’ Volleyball on the Rebuild By Greg Phipps F irst-year head coach Gina Vozzella realizes it’s going to take small steps and patience to turn around a Saugus volleyball program that has struggled in recent years. The Lady Sachems are coming off a winless season in 2018 and are hoping to make it back into the victory column this fall. Vozzella, who coached last year’s junior varsity squad, has already seen positive signs. The team has increased personnel-wise (varsity and JV combined) by 15 players this year and is showing more cohesiveness on the court. “The players are working more together as a team and showing better communication,” she said. “We only had 18 players all together (varsity and JV) last year. We’re up to 33 this year, so we’re building.” Leading this year’s squad are captains Jenni Costa and GiSaugus volleyball captains Jenni Costa and Gianna Macone.

They play home contests against Winthrop on Friday and Revere on Monday, Sept. 9. Collaborative’s Fifth Annual Outdoor Mass and BBQ O n September 15, join the Saugus Catholics Collaborative on the grounds of Blessed Sacrament Parish for a family-friendly afternoon of fun and games!

Saugus Catholics Collaborative is made up of Blessed Sacrament Parish and St. Margaret Parish. Both parishes are in Saugus. OLD SACHEM | from page 11 ment way from the batters. His curve ball dropped between 12 and 24 inches, making hitting difficult. He relied principally on his four-seam fastball, occasionally tossing a curve, a changeup or a fork-ball. Koufax became a broadcaster for NBC doing the Saturday Game of the Week, but quit after six years. He was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1972 in his first year of eligibility, making him the youngest player selected. He became a minor league pitching coach for the Dodgers in 1979 but quit in 1990 because of bad feelings with the MLB manager of the Dodgers, Tommy Lasorda. On May 27, 2010, he was included with a group of prominent Jewish Americans at the White House by President Barack Obama. The President told Sandy “that they had something in common. He can’t pitch on Yom Kippur and I can’t pitch.” Sandy Koufax will be remembered as the greatest lefty pitcher of all time.

THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, September 6, 2019 Page 15 THE SOUNDS OF SAUGUS By Mark Vogler H ere are a few tidbits that you might want to know about this week in Saugus. Here’s wishing for some good weather One of the year’s best events that Saugus can offer is scheduled for next Saturday, Sept. 14 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saugus’ Founders Day, now in its 39th year, never seems to get old. I’ve been to the last three Founders Days, and I am looking forward to this one. The centerpiece of the event will be the awarding of the Saugus Man and Woman of the Year on a stage set up in front of Saugus Town Hall. There will be entertainment, a variety of good food, games for kids and fun events. For more information, email foundersday@saugus-ma.gov, or you may call the Saugus Youth & Recreation Department at 781- 231-4022. A “Shout-Out” for the MP Realty Group Jeanie Bartolo, Town Meeting Member for Precinct 6, seems to be on a “Shout-Out” Streak. This week, Jeanie emailed us: “Darlene Minincleri and Sue Paloma, owners of MP Realty Group for their kindness in helping an elderly gentlemen who tripped and fell and was injured in front of their office on Jackson Street this week.” “They took the gentleman in and watched over him until the firefighters and ambulance came,” Jeanie wrote. Keep them coming, Jeanie! 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. Just send an email (mvoge@comcast.net) with the 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 photo. One-Day Holiday trash/recycling delay The Town of Saugus announces that the trash and recycling collection will run on a one-day delay through tomorrow (Saturday, Sept. 7) due to the observance of Labor Day. The compost site will be open normal hours tomorrow (Saturday, Sept. 7, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.). The Town of Saugus would like to thank everyone for their cooperation. Please contact Solid Waste/Recycling Coordinator Lorna Cerbone at 781-231-4036 with any questions. Navy Band will entertain at Breakheart on Sunday Rhode Island Sound returns to the Breakheart Reservation in Saugus, Mass., for a performance on Sunday (Sept. 8) at 5 p.m. Rhode Island Sound is the most contemporary sounding group from Navy Band Northeast. This ensemble entertains audiences with music ranging from rhythm and blues to classic rock. Performing current popular music at high schools throughout New England, Rhode Island Sound also performs public concerts at a variety of venues. Their versatility and showmanship has always kept them in great demand since their inception in 1974. Please visit Navy Band Northeast’s Facebook page for more information about the Rock Band at Breakheart Reservation; to see pictures of past performances, please visit Navy Band Northeast gallery. For more information about Navy Band Northeast, visit the Navy Band Northeast page. This event is free and open to the public, so bring a chair or a blanket. This event is cosponsored proudly by the nonprofit, all volunteer Friends of Breakheart Reservation and DCR. So, sing, dance and support our troops. Horrific sights rekindled Looking at those grim photos taken by Lt. Damian Drella of the Saugus Fire Department of last Saturday’s double fatality on Route 1 brought back some bad memories of my own days back on the cop beat when I took shots late at night or early in the morning to go with a traffic fatality story. During my days with the Lawrence Eagle-Tribune, I covered so many of these tragedies that state police who recognized me as I walked toward the debris field of twisted and charred metal would actually stop traffic so I could get close to the crash site. And usually the closer you got, the better the photo. Were they being just good men and women or did they have an agenda? Who knows? But I’m sure the state police had a good reason for trying to accommodate me in these photo shoots. A good newspaper photo of the mangled, twisted metal can serve as a good educational tool, a few troopers told me over the years. There’s no telling, of course, just how much impact those photos would have. But there’s little doubt in my mind that such photos could influence drivers to be more careful out there on the roads. It only takes a few seconds to make a fatal mistake. That can be a very sobering reminder for the best of drivers or the worst of drivers. Full Harvest Moon Night Hike Feel like a nice autumn walk? Try going out on a Full Harvest Moon Night Hike on Saturday, Sept. 14, from 8:00 to 9:30 p.m. Show up at the Christopher P. Dunne Visitor Center at Breakheart Reservation (177 Forest St., Saugus). Experience Breakheart in a whole new light – or lack of light! Learn why the Native Americans called September’s moon the Full Harvest Moon as you take in the spectacular nocturnal view over Silver Lake. This is an easy, 2.5-mile hike, mostly along paved paths – ages eight and up. Bring water; insect repellent is recommended. Dress for the weather and wear closed-toe shoes. Flashlights are allowed if necessary. Registration is required. Email stacy.kilb@mass.gov. Fall Festival Feel like a fall festival? Try out Saturday, Sept. 28, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Food! Fun! Fall! Free activities for kids and families: The list of things to do includes baby animal petting zoo from McDonny’s Traveling Farm, a stuff-your-own scarecrow, a photo booth, free donuts & food samples, old-fashioned lawn games, a cider press demo with tasting, a tour-a-truck, hot dogs/water available for purchase, take-home crafts, pumpkin decorating, Friends of Breakheart Gift Shoppe merchandise, and candy-in-the-hay. Meet Smokey Bear and the DCR Fire Patrol. A Chamber kickoff So, is this revival of the Saugus Chamber of Commerce a good thing and will it work? Perhaps those questions can be pondered at an upcoming chamber function. The organizers of the Chamber invite members and nonmembers to a kickoff cocktail party at Rosaria Restaurant at 190 Main St. in Saugus, from 5 to 7 p.m. on Oct. 24. There will be a cash bar, complimentary appetizers, networking and discounted membership. Check it out. A dozen possible School Committee candidates? Since we last opined in this column, two more potential candidates have gone down to the Saugus Town Clerk’s Office to pull papers for the elective office of School Committee Member. That brings to 12 the number of potential candidates who are at least interested in the position. The latest two are incumbent School Committee Member Marc Magliozzi and Bill Marchand. For the Board of Selectmen, a dozen potential candidates have also pulled papers. There are five potential candidates for the Housing Authority so far. Stay tuned. Nomination papers information For Saugus residents who are considering a run at public office in the town elections, nomination papers are still available at the Town Clerk’s Office at Town Hall. It appears there could be a few openings up for grabs on both the School Committee and the Board of Selectmen. Several of the incumbents on these two local elected bodies may not be running for reelection in the November town elections, according to several reports. If you have ever considered helping out your community in an elected or appointed role, go get it! Here are some important dates: Sept. 10 at 5 p.m.: last day for incumbent Town Meeting members wishing to become a candidate for reelection to submit written notice to the town clerk. Sept. 13 at 5 p.m.: last day to obtain nomination papers. Sept. 17 at 5 p.m.: last day for candidates to submit nomination papers. Fifty certified signatures of registered voters are required for the Board of Selectmen, School Committee and the Housing Authority. Ten certified signatures of registered voters are required for Town Meeting members. These signatures must be of registered voters in the candidate’s precinct. SOUNDS| SEE PAGE 16

Saugus over coffee, anyone? Back during several stints covering local politics in Lawrence, I would organize neighborhood groups into several coffee klatches where residents would talk about major issues in their respective parts of the city. These were very popular sessions, as they would empower city voters to discuss issues on their mind and their wish lists of projects they liked to see discussed on the campaign trail. These were so successful that the citizens essentially set voter agendas for City Council, School Committee and sometimes mayoral races. Do you as a Saugus resident have issues that you would like to see public officials tackle in your neighborhood in town? Would you feel comfortable sitting down with a reporter over coffee focusing on what you would like to see done town-wide or in a specific neighborhood? Get some of your friends together, and let’s have some coffee as you articulate what you think should be an issue tackled by town or school officials.

MASSterList is a daily ensemble of news and commentary about the Legislature, Politics, Media and Judiciary of Massachusetts drawn from major news organizations as well as specialized publications selected by widely acclaimed and highly experienced editor Jay Fitzgerald. Jay introduces each article in his own clever and never-boring, inimitable way. THE HOUSE AND SENATE: There were no roll calls in the House and Senate last week. This week, Beacon Hill Roll Call reports on how often local representatives voted with their party leadership. The votes of 126 Democratic representatives were compared to House Speaker Bob DeLeo (D-Winthrop). The votes of 31 Republicans were compared with those of GOP Minority Leader Brad Jones (RNorth Reading). Beacon Hill Roll Call uses 81 votes from the 2019 House session as the basis for this report. This includes all roll calls that were not on local issues. Eighty-six of the 126 Democratic representatives (68 percent) voted with DeLeo 100 percent of the time. Another 18 Democratic representatives voted with DeLeo on all but one of the roll calls The Democratic representative who voted the lowest percentage of times with DeLeo was Rep. Angelo Scaccia (DBoston) who voted with him 82.7 percent of the time. Eleven of the 31 GOP members voted with Jones 100 percent of the time. Seven members came close and voted with Jones on all but one of the roll calls. The GOP representative who voted with Jones the lowest percentage of times is Rep. Peter Durant (R-Spencer) who voted with Jones 90.1 percent of the time. PERCENTAGE OF TIMES REPRESENTATIVES VOTED WITH THEIR PARTY’S LEADERSHIP IN 2019 The percentage next to the representative’s name represents the percentage of times the representative supported his or her party’s leadership. The number in parentheses represents the number of times the representative opposed his or her party’s leadership. Some representatives voted on all 81 roll call votes. Others missed one or more roll call. The percentage for each representative is calculated based on the number of roll calls on which he or she voted and does not count the roll calls for which he or she was absent. Rep. RoseLee Vincent 100 percent (0) Rep. Donald Wong 100 percent (0) HOW LONG WAS LAST WEEK’S SESSION?

Many legislators say that legislative sessions are only one aspect of the Legislature’s job and that a lot of important work is done outside of the House and Senate chambers. They note that their jobs also involve committee work, research, constituent work and other matters that are important to their districts. Critics say that the Legislature does not meet regularly or long enough to debate and vote in public view on the thousands of pieces of legislation that have been filed. 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 dozens of bills in the days immediately preceding the end of an annual session. During the week of August 26-30, the House met for a total of one hour and 16 minutes while the Senate met for a total of one hour and 13 minutes. MON.

My wife and I are both in our late fifties and would like to get some professional advisement to help us better prepare for our retirement years. Seeking Advice Dear Seeking, With all the different financial planners, advisers and services available today, finding and choosing a trusted professional that can help you meet your financial goals can be confusing. Here are a few suggestions to consider. Where to Look A good place to start your search is by asking friends or relatives for recommendations. If you don’t know anyone who can give you a referral, and you’re looking for broad-based financial advice, hire a Certified Financial Planner (CFP) who are considered the “gold standard” in the industry. CFPs must act as fiduciaries, putting their client’ best interest above their own. To get the CFP credential, they must have a college degree and be educated in a wide range of personal finance subjects, pass a rigorous certification exam, have three years professional experience, meet continuing-education requirements and abide by a code of ethics. CFPs are taught to look at the big picture view of your finances, talking you through your goals, as well as advising you on the details of your financial life. You’re also probably better off hiring a CFP that’s a fee-only planner, verses one who earns a commission by selling you financial products. Fee-only planners charge only for their services – for example you might pay $150 to $350 an hour for a financial tune-up, a flat fee per project or an asset-based fee. To find a fee-only planner in your area, use the National Association of Personal Financial Advisors (NAPFA.org), which carefully vets all members and offers an online directory. Or see the Garrett Planning Network (GarrettPlanningNetwork.com), a network of fee-only advisers. Or the Alliance of Comprehensive Planners (ACplanners.org), a community of fee-only advisors that charge annual retainers. If your needs are more specific, some other financial professionals to consider are a Registered Investment Adviser (RIA) who is registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission or a state securities regulator to manage investment portfolios; a Chartered Financial Consultant (ChFC), who specialize in insurance and estate planning; and a Certified Public Accountant (CPA), who can help with tax planning. Be leery of many other financial advising titles, designations and certifications that are out there like the Certified Financial Consultant (CFC) or the Wealth Management Specialist (WMS). Many of these require no more than a few courses at a seminar or online, which means they’re not worth much. To research the different certifications or designations visit FINRA.org/investors - click on “Tools & Calculators,” then on “Professional Designations.” How to Choose After you find a few candidates in your area, call them up and schedule an appointment to meet and interview them. Find out about their experience, expertise and the types of services they provide; if they’re a fiduciary; how they charge and how much; what is their investment philosophy; and how will they handle your ongoing questions or financial needs. Look for someone whose clients are in situations similar to yours and who’s available as often as you need them. It’s also wise to do a background check on your potential advisor. At LetsMakeaPlan.org, you can verify a planner’s certification as CFP (click on “Verify CFP Professional Status”). You’ll also see any information on the planner’s disciplinary history with CFP Board and on bankruptcy filings in the past 10 years. To vet a registered investment adviser, go to Investor.gov where you can search an individual’s name and click on “Detailed Report” to see information on qualifications, employment history, disciplinary actions, criminal convictions and more. To check out a broker, visit BrokerCheck.finra.org where you can search an individual or firm’s name to get details like years of experience, licensing, exams passed and regulatory actions. 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.
