Vogler oard of Selectmen Chair Anthony Cogliano said he doesn’t trust the findings of the town’s Marijuana Establishment Review Committee (MERC) and will press forward with his own investigation to determine which of the seven companies are best suited to operate a retail pot business in Saugus. “I just think the whole process was unfair,” Cogliano told colleagues Wednesday night after the board had completed two nights of hearings totaling close to seven hours reviewing applications from seven companies seeking a Special Permit (S-2) to open commercial pot establishments in town. “I think the worst locations got the best scores,” Cogliano said of the two businesses that the MERC report recommended for S-2 permits. The town’s Marijuana Establishment Review Committee in July recommended just two companies be issued S-2 B permits: � Uma Flowers, LLC with a proposed location at 24 Broadway (Route 1 North) – the site of a former house that was torn down – was the unanimous selection of the seven-member committee, achieving a perfect score of 140 total points, based on an “exceptional” rating by each member in each of the fi ve categories that were considered. � Sanctuary Medicinals, with a proposed location of 181 Broadway (Route 1 South), also received a favorable recommendation to be issued a special permit for zoning by selectmen to locate at the site of the former 99 Restaurant. The business received a total of 118 points out of a possible 140. “I don’t like any part of the process whatsoever,” Cogliano said. “We’re entitled to three licenses at a minimum. Three licenses brings in more money than two,” he said.

Page 2 THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – FriDAy, SEpTEmbEr 15, 2023 POT SHOP | FROM PAGE 1 Wednesday night’s meeting, Board of Selectmen Vice Chair Debra Panetta said she was prepared to vote on which applicants were most deserving of the S-2 license. “I would have taken a vote tonight if they were ready,” Panetta said. “There were some presentations that were much more in depth with much more information than others. And some of these operators had much more experience,” she said. But Cogliano said he was in “no hurry” to vote and insisted that the board’s investigation involve site visits of facilities run by each of the applicants. Selectmen voted 4-0 to continue the hearings until Oct. 4. “I want to come up with my own conclusions. I intend to do our own investigation and due diligence,” Cogliano said. Selectman Jeff Cicolini has previously recused himself from participating in the hearings because of a potential conflict of interest – one of the seven companies is a client of his accounting firm. Since S-2 permits require a four-fifth’s approval by selectmen, any of the applicants will need the backing of the other four selectmen. Obtaining consensus on any of the applications could be challenging, as there is disagreement over how the selectmen should pursue their review of the S-2 permit applications. For instance, Selectman Michael Serino said he will not participate in any site review of the applications. Selectman Panetta said she will limit her participation to Saugus sites only. “I will go to a site visit in my hometown, not in another community,” Panetta said. “Our job is location – to find the best location in Saugus. We are granting a special permit – not a license. I want to do the right thing for the town. It would be great if all four of us can agree. If we can’t come to a consensus, we wind up with zero,” she said. Panetta has concerns about the board focusing on its own responsibilities instead of matters that don’t involve its duties. On Tuesday, she sought a legal opinion from Town Counsel John Vasapolli on Special Permit Marijuana Establishments. She even wondered whether the board should be discussing host community benefits. Article 22 of the town’s Zoning Bylaws “provides that the Board of Selectmen shall consider that the establishment is designed to minimize any adverse impact on abutters and other parties in interest, meets all permitting requirements of the Commonwealth and state laws, meets all zoning requirements, provides adequate security to protect the health and safety of others, and adequately addresses the issues of traffic demand and parking,” Vasapoli advised in his legal opinion. “The role of the Board of Selectmen is exclusively as a special permit granting authority for the use of a Marijuana establishment at the particular location under the Zoning bylaws of the Town of Saugus. This role does not include discussion or negotiation of benefits to the town pursuant to a host community agreement as the negotiation of the Host Community Agreement is Our 51st Anniversary Dan - 1972 We Sell Cigars & Accessories!

The Board of Selectmen sit as special permit granting authority under the zoning bylaws and the town manager negotiates and executes the Host Community Agreement with the Marijuana establishments that meet the criteria he has established.” Selectman Corinne Riley said is concerned that six of the seven applicants had updated information in the MERC report or questioned its accuracy. With so much disagreement, Riley said. she would like to have a meeting with Town Manager Scott C. Crabtree and the committee to review the concerns. “I’d like to have a meeting with the manager and the committee to find out what’s the truth,” Riley said. “I just feel that we should have something to ask the committee and the town manager. We’re hearing two different things.” Cogliano said the board should have had such a meeting before the report was finalized. Cogliano said he was disappointed that Crabtree did not attend this week’s hearings so he could answer questions. “He should be sitting here answering questions as the town manager,” Cogliano said. Committee members included Town Manager Scott C. Crabtree, Police Chief Michael Ricciardelli, Fire Chief Michael Newbury, Director of Public Health John R. Fralick III, Procurement Director Michele Wendell, Vice Chair of the Saugus Planning Board Jeanette Meredith and Building Commissioner Michael LaVecchia. “These people are honorable people,” Panetta said, responding to Cogliano’s criticism that they conducted an “unfair” review. Cogliano criticized the town manager for the way he handled the review. “I’m sure it would be different if he weren’t involved in it,” he said. Cogliano said he was investigated by the Ethics Commission for his ties to three marijuana companies, but was cleared. “The problem I have with the entire process is the same problem I have with everything involving the Town manager, communication. “After nine months we were handed a report from the MERC and told to accept it.

THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – FriDAy, SEpTEmbEr 15, 2023 Page 3 A Founder’s Day Salute Saugus honors Gail Cassarino and Jack Klecker with “person of the year Award” By Mark E. Vogler G ail Cassarino and Jack Klecker have a lot in common through their Saugus connections to community service and volunteer projects which have led to the betterment of Saugus. Cassarino has been involved with the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) for more than two decades. And as regent of the Parson Roby Chapter, she’s contributed greatly to the resurgence of the local group. In Saugus, she has helped the Appleton’s Pulpit historical marker, handed out miniature American flags while marching in the Memorial Day parade, been a part of Wreaths Across America in which people gave out over 200 flags, been a part of the Wreaths Across America ceremony at Riverside Cemetery and helped to honor veterans by creating the Field of Flags annually on the lawn of the Saugus Town Hall. Klecker has collaborated on a few of the DAR projects, helping out with his pickup truck to carry away trash from the historical marker site, or hauling wreaths to the cemetery. Like Cassarino, Klecker is patriotic and loves being involved in projects that help the veterans, promote the town’s history and help make Saugus a better place. Last Saturday, they sat together on a makeshift stage near the front steps of Town Hall where they were honored at the 42nd Annual Founder’s Day with the 2023 “Person of the Year” Awards. award ceremony, 2015 “Woman of the Year” Joyce Rodenhiser and 2016 “Woman of the Year” Donna Manoogian took turns reading the 60 previous past winners, who spanned a period of 35 years Eisener noted that CassaSALUTE | SEE PAGE 9 HONORED GUESTS: Jack Klecker and Gail Cassarino relaxed after the Founder’s Day ceremony where they received their community service awards. (Saugus Advocate photo by Mark E. Vogler) “When my cousin, Barbie Southard McKenzie, won this award in 1994, I remember thinking wow – that is so awesome!!” Cassarino told the audience. “To be recognized by her peers for her efforts in touching so many lives in our community in such a positive way. And now here I am still saying wow!” McKenzie was among the group of past award recipients who gathered in front of Town Hall for a special ceremony honoring Cassarino and Klecker. “I appreciate the fact that somebody must have noticed me,” he said. Klecker is a 30year veteran of the U.S. Navy. “I try to help out as much as I can around town,” he said. Debra Dion-Faust, the 2019 “Woman of the Year,” introduced Klecker, calling him “an all-around good egg” who drives around in his pickup truck hauling items for people. It’s usually traditional for the previous year’s winner to make the award presentation to the new honoree. But 2022 “Man of the Year” Thomas Sheehan had health issues that kept him from attending the ceremony, according to Dion-Faust. Last year’s “Woman of the Year,” Laura Eisener, made the presentation to Cassarino.

POT SHOP | FROM PAGE 2 BOS to discuss the findings and was told no, as it would violate the open meeting law. How discussing a written, public document would violate the open meeting law is beyond me. While I have plenty to say about the findings of the report, these are continued hearings so I will save my comments until the end. “I will state that I filed three disclosures during the process as I have three friends involved. Two of them are land owners. Medi Mirnasari of 173 Main Street where Old World remedies is seeking to be licensed. Sal Palumbo who owns the property where Triple M is seeking to lease and Ray Falite who is seeking to lease the property where Oye was located. “Because of this, someone, I have an idea who, turned me into the State Ethics commission saying that I was seeking compensation to get these three licenses awarded. After a five minute investigation I was exonerated of the bogus claims and asked to file a disclosure before voting on those applicants and I did. I’m not at all shocked that none of the three were recommended by the committee even though some of them did an outstanding job in their presentation. No friends of mine should receive preferential treatment in a licensing matter but they should at least be treated fairly, and that clearly was not the case at this point in the process. The applicant seeking to lease 173 Main Street, Old world Remedies wasn’t even afforded a meeting before the MERC as the previous meetings went late and they never even gave him another date. That’s not how I treat people and that’s not how the process works. I’ve seen enough and heard enough over the last two days to make me realize the Board of Selectmen as the S2 granting Authority for the Town of Saugus, needs to further our investigation before granting any special permits. I will be setting up site visits at the applicant’s dispensaries and growing facilities to get a better understanding of how they operate. I will continue the hearings next month to discuss those findings and seek further public comment which again was lacking in the MERC report. “Then and only then will I be willing to grant the S2 permits.” (Editor’s Note: In next week’s edition, The Saugus Advocate will take a closer look at the seven companies vying to open marijuana establishments in Saugus.)

Page 8 THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – FriDAy, SEpTEmbEr 15, 2023 Saugus Gardens in the Summer Here’s what’s blooming in town this week to make your walks more enjoyable By Laura Eisener A mong the favorite symbols of summer, sunflowers have had a tough time this summer with so many rainy days. Many Massachusetts farms that usually boast spectacular sunflower displays in September are facing smaller plants and fewer flowers than in some previous years. Still, many gardens have individual sunflowers that are quite impressive, and a walk or drive through most neighborhoods will reveal a few plants standing tall this week. Dee LeMay has been enjoying the flowers in her Springdale Avenue garden. Hummingbirds are still around, and the similar looking clearwing hummingbird moth (Hemaris thysbe) is also out and about visiting its favorite flowers. The nectar-rich summer phlox (Phlox paniculata) is one of the most popular with pollinators, and the variety ‘Jeana’ shown here is an especially long blooming and mildew resistant choice. While its individual blossoms are smaller than most other varieties of summer phlox, there are many blossoms in each cluster so it still has plenty of color. The native Buttonbush These reddish fruits of buttonbush help feed wildlife in fall and winter on the shores of a pond in Golden Hills. (Courtesy photo to The Saugus Advocate by Laura Eisener) (Cephalanthus occidentalis) grows on the edges of ponds and streams and can be found in many places in Saugus. Its white spherical flowers appeared in this column July 28, and now most of the blossoms have finished although you may still see a few here and there. Most have turned to greenish or reddish spherical seedheads with many small two-seeded nutlets. Just as the nectar and pollen from the flowers can nourish many pollinators, the nutlets are valuable food in fall and winter for many kinds of birds and other wildlife. It grows along the edges of a few ponds in Golden Hills, near where the white water lilies are still blooming. While there are many water lilies grown in gardens that are tropical, white fragrant water lilies (Nymphaea odorata, also known as American white water lilies) are native to most of North America. They bloom during the day and close at night, with the roots in the mud at the bottom of the pond and the leaves and flowers floating on the surface. Water lilies petioles, or leaf stalks, can be up to five feet long, reaching from the rhizomes at the bottom of the pond up to the surface. Many pointed sweetly scented petals surround a bright yellow center, and bees can often be seen seeking nectar and pollen. At the end of the season, the fruit develops and sinks down into the water. The round leaf blades have a waxy coating to keep them from becoming waterlogged and sinking. They often make a convenient platform for inThis hummingbird moth is attracted to the nectar-laden blossoms on ‘Jeana’ phlox in a Lynnhurst garden.

Last week’s column featured sweet peas, and in early fall a wild relative of sweet pea comes into bloom at the edge of the woods on the nature trail at the Saugus Iron Works and many other places in New England. Groundnut (Apios americana) is a native member of the pea family (Fabaceae) known more for what it produces underground than above. The flowers are pinkish beige and fairly small, in clusters that resemble a small wisteria inflorescence, and the pinnately compound leaves also look like a smaller version of wisteria (Wisteria spp.). It climbs on shrubs and tree branches and can also be grown happily on trellises. Once the pretty flowers go by, they are followed by small edible pods, but the tubers connected to underground stems are even more valued as a food source. In addition to groundnut, it is sometimes called IndiThis big sunflower was grown in Saugus by Dee LeMay. (Courtesy photo to The Saugus Advocate by Dee LeMay) an potato or wild bean. Native Americans across North America often used these as a food source, storing them through the winter. They are not often cultivated as a food crop but are still gathered from the wild and enjoyed by many people.

She said if people recognized her, it was probably because they saw her on the side of the road holding a paintbrush as she restored historical markers. “I am honored to have been recognized for all the volunteer work that I do for our town, but I didn’t do this alone,” Cassarino said. “I want to thank all the members of the Parson Roby Chapter Daughters of the American Revolution who volunteered countless hours of their time for the good of our community – promoting education, patriotism and preserving history. And if it wasn’t for the support of my family, I wouldn’t be here. Especially to my husband, Anthony who often says, ‘What you up to now?’ and to my kids and their spouses,” she said. Cassarino said her longtime ties to the DAR are special. “This organization resonated with me – particularly in the area of patriotism and remembering our veterans. My dad was in the Navy and fought in WWII – my brother, several uncles and nephew also served and my brother, Ron Witten was a LT in the Saugus Police Department,” Cassarino said. “As a result, I love to do what I can to help military personnel and their families. As Laura mentioned, I was born in this town, lived my whole life in this town and hope to die in this town. I LOVE this town and the people who live here!” Klecker is a longtime Saugus resident who grew up on a farm in Watertown, Wisc., that his family owned. His brother still runs the farm today. “I got acquainted with Saugus back in 1957,” Klecker said. “I operated out of here many years, 1956 to 1985, with the Navy.” Klecker, a humble man with a big heart, kept his remarks brief. Dion-Faust noted that Klecker is an active member of the Saugus Historical Society, American Legion Post 2010, the Saugus Veterans Council and the VFW. Among other things, he loves to get involved volunteering for various groups and events – like the Strawberry Festival. She also noted that he is “a library goer,” who volunteers to repair craft items. Klecker is known for his crafts skills, too. Among the items he’s made is a scale model of the Saugus Iron Works, which is on display at the Saugus Historical Society. her case, as well as a number to call if you have information to share. Susan’s card in the MSP’s deck is the Eight of Spades. We are very pleased to report that that effort has led to Susan’s case being featured as the subject of this week’s episode of “The Deck” podcast, which reveal the stories behind some of those cards created by law enforcement agencies. The podcast draws on research of the cases, with the help of detectives and victim’s family members who have gone on record – hoping to see justice served. We are grateful to Susan’s mother, Marlene Taraskiewicz, and retired Massachusetts State Police Detective Lieutenant Robert Murphy, who worked Susan’s case for two decades, for discussing the case with “The Deck.” We hope you give the episode a listen. It is very informative and thorough. And we renew our request for information about Susan’s murder. We know a good deal already. But there is more information that we still need to obtain or confirm before we can finally secure justice for Susan. There are people walking around today, going about their lives, who have that information. If you have any information about Susan’s murder or the person or people who might have been involved, please contact us. Whatever reason you had for remaining silent until now doesn’t matter to us. Time passes, people and things change. It’s a long time past September 14, 1992, but not too late to do what is right.

Janis Long shared a VHS tape that her father-in-law had taken of the 1971 band, which included his son Ronald Long (Janis’s future husband). In the video, the band could be heard playing music of many eras. Ronald was a drum major and Janis played the French horn as a member under Mr. Mitchell’s leadership. Laura narrated as photos of past bands and achievements were displayed on screen. After the presentation, recollections of Jerome Mitchell’s band leading excellence, generosity and mentoring stories were shared with his family. Memories were flowing from past band members and the community who remembered the huge imprint Mitchell (fondly called by manythe “Music Man of Saugus”) made on people’s hearts .

Page 12 THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – FriDAy, SEpTEmbEr 15, 2023 Sachems boys golf team has hopes for postseason run By Dom Nicastro T he Saugus High School golf team is off to a 1-2 start but likes its chances to finish .500 and get into the postseason this fall. The standard for golf is different than in other sports in the Bay State, which play under the MIAA postseason rankings system. For golf, it’s .500 and you’re in. Saugus beat Salem and lost to Peabody, Gloucester and Marblehead. So, they have some catching up to do, but they’re feeling confident. “Our goal is to be .500,” said third-year Saugus coach John Sievens, who works alongside co-coach Dan Bertrand. “We’re competitive this year. And I’m hopeful that we can be and bring some golf pride back.” Ryan Jones, senior, Dom Chianca, senior, and Hunter Arsenault, sophomore, led the way for the Sachems against Salem. “They carried our team,” Sievens said. Jones has been with the team since he was an eighth-grader. He’s been playing very well right out of the gate coming off a season in which he competed in the Northeastern Conference Open. “He’s gained a lot of distance this year,” Sievens said. “He’s learning still, but he’s our number one and he’s also our captain. I would say that he’s a very even-tempered kid who doesn’t have highs and doesn’t have lows. But he’s a wonderful, wonderful student athlete that I love having on our team.” Chianca, the team’s No. 2, came to Saugus from Malden Catholic and hits the ball a ton. He’s very aggressive, his coach said. “He’s not afraid to challenge a pin,” Sievens said. “He again like most of the kids are learning the game. They’re learning to know when to dial down and not use the driver and when to go with like a hybrid or just a 4-iron so they can put themselves in good position. But he’s been a wonderful addition. He knows all the boys because all the boys on my team play hockey.” Arsenault is No. 3 and wins a lot of points on the greens. “He will probably most likely be our No. 1 next year,” Sievens said. Saugus’ No. 4 is Artie Leary, a freshman and an athlete who loves to play anything and do anything for the team. He’s a lacrosse player and a hockey player, and he just came out for golf after he was recruited by Sievens. “He’s turned out to be a great golfer. He enjoys the - LEGAL NOTICE - COMMONWEALTH OF MASSACHUSETTS THE TRIAL COURT PROBATE AND FAMILY COURT Essex Division Docket No. ES23P2495EA Estate of: ELLIE M BOTTA Also Known As: ELLIE M BOTTA Date of Death: February 07, 2023 INFORMAL PROBATE PUBLICATION NOTICE To all persons interested in the above captioned estate, by Petition of Petitioner Frank Botta of Saugus, MA a Will has been admitted to informal probate.

He crafts a lot of jokes and goofs around a lot. He fit right and is another hockey player.” The No. 5 spot for the Sachems rotates between Jake Ferraro, a senior, and Breyden Wells, a senior. “It floats back and forth, and they have never really played golf before,” Sievens said. “This is their first year, and they’re learning the game. They’re excited to be on the team, and they’re doing well.” Sophomore Brayden Verone is in his second year of golf. And he has come so far, the coach said. “He’s come a long way, and he won his first match,” Sievens said. “Last year, I mean he got beat up. He had never really played golf. So, he was getting beat up a lot, but he won his first match against Salem. I was proud of him. Brayden has been for the last two years just a great addition to our team.” Eighth-graders Drew Ferreira and Jack Cuddy are also Putting on the practice green is Hunter Arsenault. learning the game. “Drew is a lefty and has tremendous potential,” Sievens said. “He’s stepped right up and he’s been playing against seniors and juniors the whole year. Jack Cuddy is also full of potential as well.” Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk Saugonians will be active in upcoming charity walk to support cancer care and research for Dana-Farber S ixteen Saugus residents plan to participate in the Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk presented by Hyundai on Sunday, Oct. 1: Kristin Callahan, Matthew Genovese, Robert Genovese, Sharon Genovese, Juliana Grillo, Cynthia Maiuri, Robin McLaughlin, Janice Nelson, Anthony Sapochetti, Davey Saxton, David Saxton, Kamdin Saxton, Brenda Sparrow, Emily Sparrow, Karen Speziale and Diane Sullivan. They will join thousands in the iconic annual event that will unite the community to raise funds to support all forms of adult and pediatric care and cancer research at the nation’s premier cancer center, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. The Jimmy Fund Walk has raised more than $167 million for Dana-Farber in its 34-year history, raising a record-breaking more than $8.8 million in 2022. “Throughout the past 34 years, the Jimmy Fund Walk has continuously supported life-saving research and cancer care at Dana-Farber. The 2023 Walk will be held during the Jimmy Fund’s 75th anniversary year and will aim to raise $9 million in the effort to prevent, treat, and defy cancer,” said Jimmy Fund Walk Director Zack Blackburn. “This year also marks the 35th annual Jimmy Fund Walk. We are eager to get out on the course and see all our outstanding walkers and teams come together to support this great cause.” The Jimmy Fund Walk is the only organized walk permitted on the famed Boston Marathon® course, and participants have the flexibility to choose from four distance options: 5K walk (from Dana-Farber Cancer Institute’s Longwood Medical Campus), 10K walk (from Newton), Half Marathon walk (from Wellesley) and Marathon walk (from Hopkinton). Whatever route walkers choose, they will be treated to 10 refueling stations as well as poster-sized photographs of patients – Jimmy Fund Walk Heroes – displayed at each mile and half-mile marker as inspiration. All four routes of the Jimmy Fund Walk will culminate at the Jimmy Fund Walk Finish Line Powered by Schneider Electric. Due to construction in Copley Square, the Jimmy Fund Walk Finish Line location has been moved to the Fenway neighborhood for 2023. Walkers should know that distances might be slightly shorter, as they finish the walk in front of Fenway Park. The finish line will include a celebration complete with food, music and a speaking program. If walkers wish to participate a bit closer to home, the Jimmy Fund Walk has flexible opportunities. Participants can also join the event virtually by “walking their way” from wherever they are most comfortable: in their neighborhood, on a favorite hiking trail or on a treadmill at home. Materials to support Virtual Walkers are available. To register to walk or volunteer at the Jimmy Fund Walk (#JimmyFundWalk) or to support a walker, visit www.JimmyFundWalk.org or call 866531-9255. Registrants can enter the promo code NEWS for $5 off the registration fee. All registered walkers will receive a bib, a medal and a Jimmy Fund Walk T-shirt.

THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – FriDAy, SEpTEmbEr 15, 2023 Page 13 Football Sachems Trounce Chelsea, 40-6, in Home Opener By Dom Nicastro C am Preston threw four touchdown passes to three different players, and Tommy DeSimone, Danny Shea and Isaiah Rodriguez each had two touchdowns in Saugus’ 40-6 opening-night victory over Chelsea at home Friday, Sept. 8. Any more good news? The defense was stifling, the home crowd was intense and Saugus won its opener for the first time since a 41-20 win over Bishop Fenwick in 2010. Oh, and the offensive line – left tackle Ethan Malcolm, left guard Larry Barrows, center Braden Faiella, right guard Dwayne Williams and right tackle Koby Jette – was tremendous. “The biggest thing for us was we were able to get guys like Tommy DeSimone, Danny Shea and Isaiah Rodriguez the space to do stuff,” Saugus coach Steve Cummings said. “We were able to execute early, build a lot of momentum and just kind of keep it going through pretty much midway through the third quarter when we started getting some guys out.” Saugus’ defense was super tough, forcing multiple threeand-outs and giving the Sachems’ offense great field position. Preston at QB was able to take advantage. He took what the defense was giving him all night and ended the night with a super-efficient 11-for-12. “I mean, you can’t really ask for more efficiency than that,” Cummings said. “He’s making great reads and just putting the ball on people. The biggest thing for us is we have some guys that can make people miss. If we’re able to get our guys the ball and give them some room to go, it’s going to be really, really good for us on offense.” Saugus did a solid job all night. It spread the ball around. It finished plays. It had tremendous downfield blocking. “It’s kind of like everybody’s helping each other out,” Cummings said. “Whenever we can play like that, we could be dangerous. I told the guys this is a collection of what we can do, and I think they’re starting to believe it. They know that we can be that good. We’ve got another big test coming up this Friday, and it’s going be nice if we can repeat the performance.” Saugus hosts Northeast Metro Tech on Friday, Sept. 15, at 6:30 p.m. Northeast is coming off a 62-35 thrashing of Lowell Catholic. And it put up a lot of gaudy offensive numbers. “ They played Saturday morning against Lowell Catholic, and they ran for over 500 yards,” Cummings said. “Chris Zullo, their senior tailback, ran for 320 yards on the ground. So, we know what they want to do. They just kind of smash the ball down the field, and defensively, we’re going to have to be ready for that. We’re going to have to put them behind the sticks at some point Saugus running back Tommy DeSimone headed downfield against Newburyport in last year’s action. because that’s the kind of offense where they just want to get four yards and four yards and just weigh you down. Northeast Voke has a lot of Saugus kids on their team. So, there’s a lot of familiarity there. ~ SHS Sachems Sports round-Up ~ SAUGUS VOLLEYBALL DROPS OPENER, REBOUNDS Saugus fell to Marblehead on the volleyball court to open the season, 3-0, but came back to top Salem, 3-0. The Sachems came out slow but picked it up in the final two sets against Marblehead. The final breakdown was 25-9, 25-23, 25-19. “The first one was a little rough for us,” Saugus coach Mikayla Niles said. “First-game jitters but the second and third ones were really good. The girls really came out and it was back-and-forth, back-and-forth both the second and third set.” Libero Ana Silva really stood out for Saugus. She was loud, talking and communicating and getting the girls hyped – staying in every play and doing everything she needed to do as a captain and role mode and leader, according to the coach. Middle hitter Gia Saunders really stood as well. “She definitely broke through her shell this year,” Niles said, “and she was a powerhouse in the front for us. Everyone else played unbelievable, with everyone involved in every play constantly hitting their spots. The servers were really good. We only had a couple missed serves. Everything just really well came together. I’m very excited to see what the future has to hold for us.” Against Salem, the Sachems won: 25-18, 25-23 and 28-26. Aly Mabee had a great game and was “all over the place hustling to every ball, and her setting was beautiful and her serves were awesome, too,” Niles said. “She was everywhere.” SAUGUS FIELD HOCKEY FALLS IN FIRST FEW Saugus dropped its first few games. Masconomet beat Saugus, 11-0, and Gloucester topped Saugus, 8-0, while Saugus also fell to Beverly, 5-0. It was a tough start against two state-level teams from last year. “Although the score sounds bad, the girls played well,” Saugus coach Barbara Guarente said of the Masco game. Grace Fiore, a senior captain, was player of the game. She played center halfback. Players of the game against Gloucester were Jessica Bremberg, senior captain, and senior Sam Murray. “Jess played all over the field,” Guarente said. “She was on our defensive and offensive corners. Senior Sam Murray also was player of the game. She had a great day on defense.” The field hockey team lost to Beverly in what its coach called the best game of the season. “They came together as a family and played beautifully together,” Guarente said. “The communication between them was shown by the way they moved the ball down the field. It was the first game where we had four corners against the other team. Their push passes, cutting to the ball, sticks down on defense kept the game to 3-0 at half. In the third quarter no one scored. Not bad for a young team with only one sub. The game award goes to the entire team for a job well done.” Saugus is a very young team. It has four eighth-graders playing on the varsity squad: Teaghan Arsenault, Angelina Dow, Julia Strout and Mia Shaudee. It also has two freshmen: Jordyn Ripley-Deminski and Sydney Ferreira. Sophomores are Cadence Coburn, Audrey Comeau and Anna Enwright. Sami Sarnacchiaro is the lone junior, and Jessica Bremberg, Grace Fiore, Samantha Murray and Bella Natalucci are the seniors. The following players make up the junior varsity team: Jaelese Bellard, Ava Caron, Caden Diozzi, Jhessyca Dos Santos, Adila Dzindo, Meri Mogauro, Alanna Soto and Lilah Sullivan. SAUGUS BOYS SOCCER EVENS UP WITH WINTHROP Saugus tied its opener with Winthrop, 1-1. Carlos Miranda scored the only goal in the first half. Brian Pineda sent the ball over the defense, and Miranda made a run on the right side. He cut to the left and the keeper came at him. Miranda volleyed the ball past him and put it in on the lower left corner. SAUGUS GIRLS SOCCER POWERS PAST WINTHROP Saugus girls soccer opened the season with an 8-1 win against Winthrop. Natalie Justice opened the season with the first goal three minutes in. Captain Madison Botta and captain Medi Femino both notched a hat trick. Juliana Powers also scored. The defense was led by Layla Manderson and captain Violet Hawley. Midfield was dominated by Veronica Ortega and Liliana Hernandez. Box Score: Saugus 40, Chelsea 6 1st Quarter S - Tommy DeSimone TD run (Connor Bloom PAT); 7-0 S - Danny Shea TD reception from Cam Preston (Bloom kick); 14-0 S - Cody Munafo TD reception from Preston (Bloom kick); 21-0 2nd Quarter S - Isaiah Rodriguez TD reception from Preston (kick failed); 27-0 S - Danny Shea TD reception from Preston (kick failed); 33-0 3rd Quarter S - Isaiah Rodriguez TD run (Bloom Kick); 40-0 4th Quarter C - Alex Pinto TD run; 40-6 So, it’s a great matchup for us. We’re both Division 5 teams and have pretty good week one wins. So, we’re expecting a battle.”

Page 14 THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – FriDAy, SEpTEmbEr 15, 2023 The Sounds of Saugus By Mark E. Vogler Good morning, Saugus! Sunday (Sept. 17) is going to be a big day in Saugus Center. St. John’s Episcopal Church will observe a special occasion at the 10 a.m. Sunday worship service when parishioners welcome Rev. Roger Nelson, who served for 30 years as priest and pastor at the church before retiring in 2003. The church will be celebrating the 50th anniversary of his arrival and will host a reception following the service in Ashworth Hall at 8 Prospect St., Saugus. During his three decades at St. John’s, Rev. Nelson focused on the youth of the parish, led the EYC for many years and was very active in ecumenical and outreach ministries, which extended beyond the church. He maintained the parish’s ecumenical engagement with other clergy in the community as a member of the former Saugus Council of Churches (which evolved into the Saugus Clergy Association). The Rev. Nelson, 83, is retired and living in New York with family. Later in the day, the Parson Roby Chapter, Daughters of American Revolution located in Saugus will be organizing a special event outside Town Hall. It has been a tradition to ring the bells on Constitution Day – Sept. 1. The local DAR hopes to bring this tradition to Saugus by giving out little bells to the public to ring on the steps of Town Hall at 4 p.m. The event gets underway at 3:30 p.m. when a crowd gathers for a reading of the Preamble to the Constitution, a proclamation declaring the day as the beginning of Constitution Week (Sept. 17-23) and the bell ringing. The weekend kicks off on a patriotic note at 6 p.m. today (Friday, Oct. 15) with National POW/MIA Recognition Day at Veterans Park, with a ceremony to remember those who never returned – the prisoners of war and service members who are missing in action. Food Pantry notes The Saugus United Parish Food Pantry is open today (Friday, Sept. 15) from 9:3011 a.m. Legion Breakfast today There’s a good breakfast deal for Saugus veterans and other folks who enjoy a hearty breakfast on Friday mornings. The American Legion Post 210 at 44 Taylor St. in Saugus offers Friday morning breakfasts for the 2023-24 season. Doors open at 7:30, with breakfast served from 8-9:00 a.m. for an $8 donation. Veterans who cannot afford the donation may be served for free. Town Election Watch It will be a simple, straightforward question that voters will be asked on the Nov. 7 town election ballot. Town Clerk Ellen Schena said the wording of Question 1 will read as follows: “Shall a commission be elected to revise the Charter of the Town of Saugus. Yes or No.” There will be another ballot question asking voters to choose the candidates they would like to see fill the nine-member commission, providing the vote approves the creation of a Charter Commission. Right now, the potential race for the Charter Commission is overshadowing all of the other town political races. Four more town residents – Precinct 2 Town Meeting Member Joseph John Vecchione IV, Lawrence Mingolelli, School Committee Chair Vincent Serino and Christopher Tarantino – had pulled papers this week to make it a potential 30 candidates running for the nine seats. Meanwhile, the races for the Board of Selectmen (eight for five seats), School Committee (nine for five seats) and Housing Authority (four for two seats) have a potential 21 candidates running for 12 seats combined, as of Wednesday (Sept. 13). As a rule of thumb, a local election isn’t much of an election unless you have at least two candidates running for one seat. In the signature race, Board of Selectmen Chair Anthony Cogliano pulled out papers for what he is hoping to be a third consecutive two-year term on the board. All five incumbent selectmen are running for reelection. Former School Committee Chair Thomas Whittredge has pulled out papers for a potential run for the five-member board. Whittredge has been the top vote-getter in the School Committee race for the last two elections. He stepped down six months after his election following the death of his wife. With nine candidates in the field – seven of them with past School Committee experience – this race is currently more competitive than the Board of Selectmen. THE MAIN EVENT: Town officials and past recipients of the Founder’s Day “Person of the Year Award” gathered on a stage set up near the steps of Saugus Town Hall last Saturday (Sept. 8) for the presentation of this year’s honorees: Gail Cassarino and Jack Klecker. (Saugus Advocate photo by Mark E. Vogler) Nothing is official yet. Each of these candidates may run or decide not to. They have four days – up until 5 p.m. on Tuesday (Sept. 19) – to submit nomination papers to the Town Clerk’s Office for certification of signatures. Fifty certified signatures of registered voters are required for the Board of Selectmen, School Committee, the Housing Authority and the nine-member Charter Commission. Only 10 certified signatures of registered voters are required for Town Meeting, but each of the signatures must be from registered voters in the candidate’s precinct. Today (Sept. 15) is the final day to obtain nomination papers – just four days before the filing deadline. Stay tuned. Town Meeting races Forty-seven of the 50 incumbent Town Meeting Members have taken out nomination papers, indicating an interest in running for another two-year term. As of Wednesday (Sept. 6), here is the expression of interest in each of the 10 precincts. In four of the precincts (1, 4, 6 and 10), all five Town Meeting members seemed ready to run for reelection. PCT 1: Susan Dunn, Anthony Arone, Mark Bell, Assunta Palomba, Christopher Jones. PCT 2: Christine Moreschi, Robert Camuso Sr., Peter Rossetti Jr. and Christopher Riley.

Meanwhile, 16 potential new candidates had pulled papers to challenge the incumbents in their respective precincts. Precinct 9 Town Meeting Member Robert J. Long can’t run for reelection because a change in the boundaries of his precinct left him and his neighbors in Precinct 4, so Long has pulled papers to run in Precinct 4. The other 15 potential challengers to incumbent Town Meeting members are: PCT 1: Stacey Her - man-Dorent and John O’Brien. PCT 2: Joseph Malone, Matthew Parlante, Yves J. Lamite and Jeannie Meredith. PCT 3: Leonard Ferrari, Jr. PCT 4: Andrew Whitcomb and Stephanie Shalkoski. PCT 7: Fred Federico. PCT 8: Arthur Grabowski and Kristi Talagan. PCT 9: John Cottam. PCT 10: Steven C. DiVirgilio and James Tozza. Currently, there are three precincts where all five candidates would get elected without opposition: 5, 6 and 9. That’s two fewer “no competition” precincts than two years ago. Only six candidates have pulled papers for the five seats in Precincts 3, 7 and 8. Meanwhile, these four precincts are shaping up to be competitive: PCT 2: eight candidates (four incumbents and four challengers). PCT 4: eight candidates (five incumbents and three challengers). PCT 1: seven candidates (five incumbents and two challengers). PCT 10: seven candidates (five incumbents and two challengers). The good news is there is still time – up until Sept. 19 – for potential candidates to pull nomination papers and file them to the Town Clerk to qualify for placement on the Nov. 7 ballot. It’s also good news that four of the five precincts where only five candidates ran for the five seats two years ago have more than five potential candidates at the moment: seven potential candidates in Precinct 1, eight in Precinct 2, six in Precinct 3, six potential candidates in Precinct 2 and 6 in Precinct 7. But THE SOUNDS | SEE PAGE 15

THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – FriDAy, SEpTEmbEr 15, 2023 Page 15 THE SOUNDS | FROM PAGE 14 two of the precincts that had more than five candidates two years ago have just five candidates running at this time – Precincts 5 and 9. Stay tuned. Special “Shout Outs” We had one nomination for a “Shout Out” this week. Doris Napier: “A great big thank you to Laurie Davis for allowing a free lunch to the art class at our Saugus Senior Center for the celebration of our first art show ever. All who visited the senior center that day were allowed to vote for their favorite painting. It was a great time had by all.” Editor’s Choice: A “Shout Out” to Donna Gould, the driving force behind Founder’s Day, and often called the true founder of a community event that has thrived in Saugus for over four decades. Donna showed up at Town Hall to be a part of Saturday’s festivities, particularly the presentation of the “Person of the Year Awards” near the front steps of Saugus Town Hall. Want to “Shout Out” a fellow Saugonian? This is an opportunity for our paper’s readers to single out – in a brief mention – remarkable acts or achievements by Saugus residents or an act of kindness or a nice gesture. Just send an email (mvoge@ comcast.net) with a mention in the subject line of “An Extra Shout Out.” No more than a paragraph; anything longer might lend itself to a story and/or a photo. Precinct 9 makes the most of “Saugus Over Coffee” Normally, I set up 24 chairs in the Community Room at the Saugus Public Library an hour or so before each “Saugus Over Coffee” forum. But on this past Monday night (Sept. 11), I wound up setting up four extra chairs, as 28 people showed up in addition to the three Town Meeting members from Precinct 9 – Katrina Berube, Judith Worthley and Robert J. Long. Not only was it the most people who showed up to one of our forums – double the previous high of 14 – it was the most passionate crowd we’ve had. And there was some intense, sometimes contentious discussion – particularly on the location of the proposed West Side Fire Station, which has been talked about for more than four decades. Four of the town’s five selectmen appeared at the forum: Board Chair Anthony Cogliano, Board Vice Chair Debra Panetta, Selectman Corinne Riley and Selectman Michael Serino. Robert M. Strasnick did not respond to our invitations via email and a letter to his home address and did not attend the session. Daniel Kelly emailed ahead of time to say he wouldn’t be attending the meeting because of his work schedule. Kelly did, however, offer to write a brief statement to the residents of Precinct 9 who he won’t be able to address on Saugus TV: “I am a lifelong Saugus resident and a precinct 9 resident for approximately 40 years. I work in inspectional services for the town of Saugus as a local building inspector. I serve on the Board of Assessors also. I have served as a town meeting member for the last 6 years and I am seeking re-election this year. I think some of our biggest issues in precinct 9 are a new fire station for the west side of rt 1. The lack of usable playground equipment at our neighborhood park. The small basketball court is in very poor condition. Many of our streets are in need of resurfacing. I would like to see the town seek grants to purchase some of the remaining open land to preserve the integrity of the watershed that supplies the 3 ponds. I hope voters will support me with one of their votes.” The final “Saugus Over Coffee” forum is set for 6:30 p.m. Monday, Oct. 23 in the Community Room of the Saugus Public Library and will feature Precinct 10. For those Saugus residents who are unfamiliar with the “Saugus Over Coffee” forums, they are cosponsored by The Saugus Advocate and the Saugus Public Library. The primary purpose is to give citizens in each of the town’s 10 precincts an opportunity to voice their concerns about top issues in their respective precincts. It THE SOUNDS | SEE PAGE 16

Page 16 THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – FriDAy, SEpTEmbEr 15, 2023 THE SOUNDS | FROM PAGE 15 also gives them an opportunity to meet their Town Meeting representatives and chat over a cup of coffee or tea. Town Meeting members will benefit by getting to know more about concerns in their precincts. Viewers of the forums videotaped by Saugus TV will also get to learn a little about the history or interesting things about the precinct being featured each month. One of my major hopes for the forums is that it spurs an interest in citizens to become potential candidates for Town Meeting in this fall’s town election. The public should keep in mind that there was a paucity of candidates for Town Meeting seats in the town elections back in 2021. In five of the 10 precincts, only five candidates ran for the five seats. That means half of the 50-member body was elected without competition. Stay tuned for more information as “Saugus Over Coffee” continues. Please check with The Saugus Advocate or library for any changes in dates. Residents can check the programming guide on the station’s website (www.saugustv. org). A video of the forum will also be available for viewing on the station’s vimeo page within a day or two after the event – www.vimeo.com/saugustelevision. Saugus 4-1-1 It’s been years since Saugus has had a Chamber of Commerce promoting its economic, cultural and historic assets in town. To fill part of the void, Selectman Corinne Riley spearheaded “Saugus 4-1-1” last October. It was such a success that Riley and others involved with the event are planning the Second Annual Saugus 4-1-1 for Saturday, Oct. 14, from 9 a.m. to noon at the Saugus Middle-High School Complex at 1 Pearce Memorial Dr. The event is tailored for new residents as well as established Saugonians. “Take in everything there is to find out about our town,” declares a postcard-sized promotion that circulated Saugus Center. “Learn about non-profit, youth sports and clubs you or your family may be interested in, town information, Senior Center, Library Groups, Houses of Worship, School District information.” Tours of the complex will be available. The Lion’s Club will have its eyemobile there.

What’s happening at the Saugus Public Library For schoolchildren looking for interesting projects and programs to participate in this fall, there’s plenty to do at the Saugus Public Library. There are some very good programs offered for grownups, too. “Sketch Artist” exhibit: This month’s art exhibit in the Reading Room features the Saugonian Luminaries of 2021, done by the Saugus Advocate Sketch Artist in the “Guess Who Got Sketched” series. For the past three years, Saugus’ only newspaper ran a weekly sketch done by the formerly secret sketch artist – unveiled this year as Joanie Allbee. These sketches depict, describe and honor prominent Saugonians. Each week, The Advocate publishes one of these works in its pages and invites readers to guess who the subject is. The accolades on each artwork provide clues for the reader to identify the subject of the sketch. Readers could guess the identity of the portrait subject and there would be a drawing from the correct answers – the person whose name was drawn would receive an award – usually a gift card to a local business. Stop by the Library’s Reading Room this month to see a sampling of sketches you might remember from past issues of The Advocate and to help celebrate some of our good friends and neighbors! Join our Teen Advisory Board: first Tuesday of each month at 6 p.m. in the Teen Room; fifth grade and up. Meet with the Teen Librarian once a month to talk about what you’d like for programs and materials at the library. Your opinion matters! No registration required. Snacks provided!

Got an idea, passing thought or gripe you would like to share with The Saugus Advocate? I’m always interested in your feedback. It’s been six and a half years since I began work at The Saugus Advocate. I’m always interested in hearing readers’ suggestions for possible stories or good candidates for “The Advocate Asks” interview of the week. Feel free to email me at mvoge@comcast.net. Do you have some interesting views on an issue that you want to express to the community? Submit your idea. If I like it, we can meet for a 15to 20-minute interview over a drink at a local coffee shop. And I’ll buy the coffee or tea. Or, if you prefer to continue practicing social distancing and be interviewed from the safety of your home on the phone or via email, I will provide that option to you as the nation recovers from the Coronavirus crisis. If it’s a nice day, my preferred site for a coffee and interview would be the picnic area of the Saugus Iron Works National Historic Site.
