Vogler S augus Town Meeting members will get to vote later this fall on another resolution that would ban the expansion of the ash landfi ll on Route 107 near WIN Waste Innovations’ trash-to-energy plant. The four Precinct 10 Town Meeting members who initiated the article secured more than 200 signatures this week – enough to call for a Special Town Meeting in late October. “It is Therefore Resolved that the Representatives in Town Meeting, here assembled, convey our opposition to any further extension of the WIN ash landfi ll located on Route 107 and urge our state delegation to oppose any eff ort to modify the law or regulations relative to the Areas of Critical Environmental Concern (ACEC),” says the article, which was signed by Town Meeting Members Martin Costello, Darren Ring, Peter Z. Manoogian, Sr., and Carla A. Scuzzarella. “This resolution will be sent to the entire delegation for Saugus as well as the DEP Commissioner,” it continued. Peter Delios, a member of the Landfill Subcommittee, is the lone Precinct 10 Town Meeting member who did not sign the petition supporting the proposed resolution. He recently voted in support of the WIN deal as a subcommittee member – an apparent reversal from his past position – which opposed expansion of TOWN MEETING | SEE PAGE 2 Thomas Sheehan and Laura Eisener displayed their “Person of the Year” awards last Saturday at the 41st Annual Saugus Founders Day Celebration.

A petition for the proposed warrant article with 213 certified signatures was filed with the Saugus Town Clerk’s Office on Wednesday (Sept. 14) – less than a week before the Board of Selectmen are set to begin discussions on WIN Waste Innovations’ proposed deal to pay the town up to $18 million in return for permission to extend the life of its ash landfill by 25 years. The board’s meeting to consider WIN’s Host Community Agreement (HCA) is scheduled for 7 p.m. this Tuesday (Sept. 20) in the second floor auditorium at Town Hall. Members of the Landfill Subcommittee, which is co-chaired by Board of Selectmen Chair Anthony Cogliano and Board of Health Chair William Heffernan, voted five to one with two abstentions in support of a motion to accept WIN Waste Innovation’s latest proposal and forward it to the Board of Selectmen. Meanwhile, State Rep. Jessica Giannino (D-Revere), whose district includes Precincts 3 and 10 in Saugus, and State Rep. Jeffrey Turco (D-Winthrop), along with the Alliance for Health and Environment, are hosting a meeting set for 6 p.m. Sept. 28 in the second floor auditorium of Saugus Town Hall at 298 Central St. The hosts have invited Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (MassDEP) officials to appear at the meeting to answer questions about the future of the landfill.

Any deal would also require input and backing from town officials, particularly the Board of Health. But, ultimately, the responsibility for negotiating a deal with WIN would rest with Town Manager Scott C. Crabtree. The resolution initiated by four of the five Precinct 10 Town Meeting members would be the latest in a series of various votes by Town Meeting and previous Boards of Selectmen opposing expansion of the ash landfill. “This would be no more or less symbolic than what the Landfill Subcommittee or the Board of Selectmen can do,” Precinct 10 Town Meeting Member Peter Manoogian said this week. “Under our Town Charter, neither the selectmen, or any subcommittee – or even Town Meeting – for that matter, can sign a host agreement. The Town Manager is the only one who can do that,” he said. Manoogian said he hopes selectmen will vote at next Tuesday night’s meeting to set a date for the Special Town Meeting, which must be held within 45 days of the time that selectmen call for the meeting. Manoogian said he expects the meeting to be set for late October, based on conversations he had this week with the Town Clerk’s Office. “While a Chairman can set the agenda for an elected Board, in this case the people who signed the petition have set the agenda for Town Meeting. And selectmen are required to call for the Special Town Meeting,” Manoogian said. Here is a copy of the resolution that Town Meeting members will consider at the upcoming Special Town Meeting: We the members of Saugus Town Meeting, the elected body that is the closest representative body to the citizens of Saugus, hereby adopt the following resolution: Whereas on November 16, 2021 Martin Suuberg, the Commissioner of the Department of Environmental Protection, provided written communication that the (WIN landfill) fails to meet the necessary site suitability criteria to allow for expansion within the ACEC (Area of Critical Environmental Concern) and that such an expansion proposal, under current regulations, “would not advance to the Saugus Board of Health.”; Whereas the constituent properties of WIN’s incinerator ash include toxic heavy metals and compounds not limited to but inclusive of Lead, Cadmium, Arsenic and Mercury (known carcinogens and neuro-toxins) and that such represent a threat to the public health and the environment of Saugus, Revere, and Lynn. Whereas property values in East Saugus already lag behind the rest of the Town, agreeing to any creation or expansion of an incinerator ash dump at its present location would further adversely impact the property values in this area of Saugus. Whereas, Saugus Town Meeting has never allowed one precinct to accept unfair risks and burdens over the objection and concerns of the town meeting members of the affected precinct – Precinct 10; It is Therefore Resolved that the Representatives in Town Meeting, here assembled, convey our opposition to any further extension of the WIN ash landfill located on Route 107 and urge our state delegation to oppose any effort to modify the law or regulations relative to the Areas of Critical Environmental Concern. (ACEC) This resolution will be sent to the entire delegation for Saugus as well as the DEP Commissioner.”

Vogler ternoon in front of Town Hall. “The Town of Saugus SaN o living person in Saugus has written more words about the history of his hometown than 95-year-old Saugus historian and book author Tom Sheehan – a Charlestown native – who came to Saugus in the second grade and developed a great passion for reading and writing: mostly about Saugus people, places and events. The 58 books he’s written have focused on his favorite subject – Saugus. Few native Saugonians have done as much over the last decade to promote the history of Saugus as Laura Eisener, who has served as president of the Saugus Historical Society over that time. Even in her weekly column – “Saugus Gardens,” which appears in The Saugus Advocate – she incorporates some town history about the trees, plants and flowers around town and the people who grow them. The two Saugus High School graduates have dedicated untold volunteer hours collectively to spotlight the town’s history while working for the betterment of Saugus. Last Saturday (Sept. 10), the town embraced Sheehan and Eisener as this year’s winners of the “Person of the Year” award” during the 41st Annual Saugus Founder’s Day Celebration. “In Recognition to Your Dedication to the Town of Saugus. This Award Truly Exemplifies the Outstanding Ideals and Spirit of Our Founding Fathers,” reads the inscription on the plaque presented to each recipient during a special ceremony held during early aflutes You … 2022,” it declares. Sheehan and Eisener are the latest of 60 Saugus residents who have been honored at Founders Day, going back to 1989 when the award originated. Since 1993, a man and a woman have received the recognition, which had been presented to male citizens during its first four years of existence. Each year past winners meet to recommend and choose new recipients. Several of the past award winners sat in chairs on a wooden stage set up at the bottom of the steps at Town Hall where the presentation was made. This was the first time in three years that the awards have been presented as past recipients didn’t meet last year or in 2020 because of health concerns over COVID-19. Introducing Thomas Sheehan Peter Manoogian, a 2018 “Person of the Year” award recipient, introduced Sheehan. Here are some highlights from his speech: I have been asked by my colleagues on this stage to introduce the 2022 Saugus Man of the Year – Mr. Tom Sheehan. Age 95.5, born in Charlestown and lived at #3 Bunker Hill Avenue – came to Saugus in the second grade. His grandmother was a bookbinder for Ginn & Company. She brought home books that were to be discarded due to flaws. As he describes it, he had a voracious appetite for reading at a young age.

When he moved to Saugus, he lived on Lincoln Avenue towards North Revere. He attended the Cliftondale School until the sixth grade and fondly remembers having been taught by Marleah Graves, of whom the school is now named for. He graduated from Saugus High in 1947, attended one year of prep school before joining the service. From 1950 to 1952 he served in the army as a Sergeant in Korea. Between 1948 and 1956, he would work parttime at the Saugus Iron Works restoration site. He worked alongside the chief archaeologist and actually helped unPERSON OF THE YEAR | SEE PAGE 4

Tom has written 58 books and over 1,000 short stories and poems…all on his computer…all with two fingers! Tom does his writing out of love and not for profit, having only made about $1,000 from his writings. Tom’s favorite topic, you wonder? It is Saugus, of course. As Tom explains it, he is in the “clutches of history.” As he looks out the window to the west, he sees Appleton’s Pulpit on Appleton Street.

And just as Major Samuel Appleton inspired Saugonians to watch for the threat of approaching British soldiers, Tom has inspired generations of Saugonians to “Keep Saugus history alive.” “Tell the story of Colonel Appleton” as he did to his troops in Korea over and over. “Tell the story of the undefeated Saugus Sachems facing the undefeated Melrose Red Raiders on a Sunday in 1941 and how glorious it was for the Sachems to bring home a victory.” His advice on writing is spot on: “Write what you feel.” “Write what you know.” “Be creative.” “There is something to share in every memory you have…explore and expand on those memories.” Sheehan warns Saugonians to watch out for the threat of losing their identity and their history.

The Knights serve as the right arm of the church, working alongside Blessed Sacrament and Saint Margaret Parish. The Saugus chapter includes 25 active members with 180 members in total. They are seeking new members for their Tuesday night meetings, which start at 7 p.m. Grand Knight Mark Panetta, who will assume Luongo’s duties, said Luongo exemplifies what it means to be a Knight. “It’s my honor to follow in his footsteps,” Panetta said. “His leadership has guided us so our future will be successful, and so that we have the ability to provide charitable work to our community.” The event honored all Past Grand Knights with a special recognition in honor of Luongo.

I suspect a strong reason people in Saugus may know me is because of my garden columns in The Saugus Advocate. It gives me an excuse to get out and enjoy the many gardens, wild and cultivated, that exist so close at hand. For many people, gardening became a new, powerful refuge during the pandemic. It takes the interconnection of a lot of people to make all the town organizations work, and I see firsthand the great teamwork of people at SAVE, the Tree Committee, the Garden Club and the community garden. I hope I have helped to plant some seeds to help Saugus grow into a stronger and even more lovely place.

THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – FriDAy, SEpTEmbEr 16, 2022 Page 11 Rally for pride and solidarity North Shore faith and community leaders assemble at Saugus Center to condemn an anti-Semitic banner By Mark E. Vogler “JEWS DID 9/11” Three hateful words written on a banner held by three masked men standing on an overpass on Route 1 South near the Walnut Street exit early Saturday night sparked about two dozen phone calls to the Saugus Police Department from irate drivers, according to Saugus Police Chief Michael Ricciardelli. While the anti-Semitic message offended many people who saw it live and later posted on social media, it was a catalyst for a “No Place For Hate Rally For Pride & Solidarity” on Wednesday (Sept. 14) night. About 100 people – elected offi cials, police chiefs, leaders of the Jewish community, local rabbis and lay readers – joined Chief Ricciardelli and other town officials outside Saugus Town Hall in a show of commendation for recent displays of anti-Semitism, including the Saugus incident. “It’s just an honor to be with like-minded people,” State Rep. Donald Wong (R-Saugus) told the gathering. “If you noticed, none of the people hid behind a mask,” he said, a reference to the masked men who held the anti-Semitic banner on the overpass. Rabbi Yossi Lipsker, executive director of Chabad of the North Shore, credited the offensive banner for mobilizing people of Jewish and others throughout the North Shore in a show of condemnation of the hateful act. “I want to say to the cowards out there that each and every time it happens, it backfi res,” Rabbi Lipsker said. “You won’t see this many Jews coming together, except for Yom Kippur,” he said, referring to the holiest, most important day THIS WEEK ON SAUGUS TV Sunday, Sept. 18 from 9–11 p.m. on Channel 8 – “Sunday Night Stooges” (The Three Stooges).

Paul Tucker (D-Salem), who faces no Republican opposition in the November election for Essex County District Attorney, said he was “proud” of the crowd attending the rally. “We will stand up. We will show up,” Tucker declared, urging people to respond aggressively to acts of anti-Semitism by denouncing them instead of ignoring them. Many of the speakers off ered their support to Saugus, saying they shared the problem with town residents and knew that the recent banner didn’t refl ect what the town is about. “It was really hurtful,” Chief Ricciardelli said of the banner that many drivers on Route 1 2.25 %APY* With rates like this, earning while you save is easier than ever.

During his short speech to the gathering, the chief said the Saugus Police Department determined that no laws were broken. “The First Amendment made this country great and sometimes not so great,” the chief said. “We have to defend their right to peacefully demonstrate,” he said. However, he said that after talking with some other police chiefs in Essex County that his department “is going to do some things diff erently – in documenting and tracking these incidents.” On its website this week, the Police Department posted a statement denouncing the banner. “While the First Amendment protects one’s legal right to speech, the Saugus Police Department condemns the hateful messages displayed in our community and we condemn antisemitism and hate in all its forms,” the statement said. “Saugus Police notifi ed the Anti-Defamation League of New England about the incident, and would like to share the message released as a result by Robert Trestan, ADL New England Regional Director. The Saugus Police Department stands with its partners in the ADL.” “On September 11, a day when we remember a great tragedy experienced by our country and the loss of too many, a number of highway overpasses in our Commonwealth were tarnished with antisemitic banners, held by cowardly masked extremists, blaming these terrorist attacks on Jews,” Trestan said. “The scapegoating of the Jewish community is an age-old but exceedingly harmful antisemitic trope RALLY | SEE PAGE 19 * This account is available to all new customers and for existing customers with new monies of $50,000.

Page 12 THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – FriDAy, SEpTEmbEr 16, 2022 Football Sachems hit hard by Pioneers in opener T By Greg Phipps he visiting Lynnfield Pioneers wasted little time in jumping all over the Saugus Sachems in the high school football season opener for both teams last Friday evening at Christie Serino Jr. Stadium. The Pioneers forged ahead by two touchdowns less than five minutes into the game and never looked back in an eventual 37-0 victory. From the start, Saugus found itself in a precarious situation on the opening possession of the game, pinned deep in its own end and having to surrender the ball on downs from inside its own 10-yard line. The ensuing punt ended up being returned 50 yards for a touchdown, and the subsequent extra-point kick produced a quick 7-0 Lynnfield lead. The advantage increased to 14-0 just minutes later when Lynnfield quarterback Tyler Adamo connected with receiver Joey Cucciniello on a 51-yard scoring play (the Pioneers’ first offensive play from scrimmage). The visitors would tally one more time before the quarter was over to grab a 20-0 lead. From there, it was pretty much clear sailing for Lynnfield, as the Sachems were unable to manage anything on offense. Saugus didn’t achieve a first down in the opening half while the Pioneers notched two more touchdowns to build an insurmountable 34-0 bulge by halftime. The one first-half highlight for the host Sachems was an interception of a deflected pass by sophomore defensive back Danny Shea that thwarted a second quarter Lynnfield drive. Unfortunately, Saugus’s offense gave the ball right back to the Pioneers by fumbling it away on the ensuing play. The Pioneers owned the field possession battle, constantly keeping Saugus deep in its own end, and, in the process, creating great field position for themselves. A shanked punt by Saugus in the second quarter led to another touchdown, as Lynnfield took over inside the Sachems’ 20 and marched it in from there. Offensively, Saugus quarterback Cam Preston faced heavy pressure in the pocket, and the Sachems’ running attack Saugus linebacker Justin Belluscio honed in on a Lynnfield ballcarrier during first half action last Friday. Saugus’s Tommy DeSimone tried to evade the tackle of a Lynnfield defender early on in last Friday’s season opener at home. struggled to get going. The Sachems’ defense did acquit itself well in the second half, giving up just one field goal. Saugus, now 0-1, is looking for its first victory since 2020. The Sachems will look to regroup when they travel to play the Northeast Metro Tech Knights in an unusual 10:30 a.m. game this Saturday. The Knights will be looking for their first win of the season after losing their opener to North Reading last week. Saugus quarterback Cam Preston scrambled out of the pocket as lineman Brenton Sullivan looked to protect him during the first half of last Friday’s season opener. Saugus girls’ soccer off to strong start By Greg Phipps H aving already gotten four games into the 2022 season, the Saugus High School girls’ soccer team has pulled out to a strong start. A four-goal outburst in the first half helped propel the Sachems to a 6-0 win over the Salem Witches on Wednesday evening at Bertram Field in Salem. The victory improved Saugus to 3-1 on the early season. All three triumphs have been resounding offensive efforts. In their other two wins, the Sachems defeated Winthrop, 7-0, in the season opener last Wednesday and pounded Gloucester, 7-2, last Friday. The team’s lone loss was a shutout setback against Masconomet on Monday. With 20 goals to their credit through four contests, the Sachems are looking like a squad that could supply plenty of offensive punch this fall. On Wednesday, Saugus was coming off a tough defeat at home to Masco earlier in the week. Madison Botta opened the scoring less than five minutes into the Salem contest when she took a feed from fellow forward and co-captain Madi Femino and put one in the back of the net for a quick 1-0 lead. It became a 2-0 game just minutes later as Botta returned the favor and assisted on a score by Femino. With about 19 minutes left in the first half, Olivia Migliori scored off an assist from Shawn Sewell for a 3-0 edge. The Sachems dented the net one last time before the half when Julianna Powers took a pass from Migliori and hit paydirt for the team’s fourth tally. The Sachems scored twice more in the second half. Co-captain Allison Justice made a nice pass to Botta, who broke in on goal and scored for the second time. Justice would collect a goal of her own when she was later awarded a penalty kick and converted to account for the fiSaugus forward Madi Femino broke past a Salem defender in Wednesday evening’s win over the Witches at Bertram Field in Salem. nal margin. The host Witches never really threatened offensively and spent very little, if any, time in Saugus’s end. Meanwhile, the Sachems dominated territorial play. Sachems Head Coach Chris Coviello praised his team’s effort with ball possession and Saugus’s Shawn Sewell navigated her way into Salem territory on Wednesday. how it was able to control the game up the sidelines. He credited freshmen Natalie Justice and Shay Sewell with strong performances in this area. Goalkeeper Tori Carter didn’t have to face much in the way of shots but did earn her second shutout in goal for the Sachems, who aren’t scheduled to resume action again until next Saugus’s Juliana Scalisi settled the ball despite pressure from a Salem defender.

THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – FriDAy, SEpTEmbEr 16, 2022 Page 13 The Sounds of Saugus By Mark E. Vogler A great day for Saugus Good morning, Saugus! What a great day it was for folks who decided to hit Saugus Center for the 41st Annual Founders Day last Saturday. The weather was great. And people of all ages seemed to be enjoying themselves. I’ve been to all six of the Founders Day Saturdays that the town has hosted during the last seven years (the 2020 Founders Day got canceled because of health concerns about COVID-19). And I would have to say this was a special one. Donna Gould, the beloved founder of Founders Day, has been in declining health in recent years. And she wasn’t around town for last year’s event, and a lot of folks didn’t expect to see her this year. But when it came time for the presentation of this year’s “Person of the Year” Awards at about 12:30 p.m., Donna was there along with her best friend, Kathy Blasingame (a 1995 “Person of the Year” recipient), and other past recipients of this prestigious award to Saugonians who have contributed greatly to the betterment of their community. I didn’t recognize her at first because it’s been two years since I last saw her. But she recognized me right away and gave me a huge hug. A lot of people were hugging Donna before and after the ceremony. For me, seeing her again was a highlight of this year’s Founders Day. It was a heartwarming moment when she was recognized and applauded by the other living recipients who turned out for the ceremony. It’s quite a tradition that has been done since 1993, publicly honoring the man and woman of the year – a vote taken by a meeting of past recipients. The 1989-92 honorees were all men before Founders Day organizers decided to get with the times and start honoring deserving women, too. For me, it’s always a moving moment when the Master of Ceremonies (This year it was 2015 “Person of the Year” recipient Joyce Rodenhiser) reads off a full list of past recipients. It’s almost like a quick Saugus history lesson of who’s who among the town’s great citizens over the past four decades. This year’s recipients were great choices – Thomas Sheehan (Saugus High Class of 1947) and Laura Eisener (Saugus High School Class of 1973). I have had the pleasure of interviewing both recipients for “The Advocate Asks” question and answer feature. Both are proud, civic-minded Saugonians who have done a lot for the betterment of their hometown. And to see “The Founders Day Founder,” Donna Gould, welcoming them to this special club last Saturday made the occasion even more special. Donna is a 2002 “Citizen of the Year” Award recipient. Everybody loves Gino! Another high point of Founders Day was watching Gino Figliola, of Haverhill, perform on the drums and watching the way the crowd responded to him. Gino and his agent – or, rather his mom, Brenda Figliola – have become regulars at Founders Day over the years since 2015, when he first performed as a nineyear-old. “It’s my way of giving back to the community I grew up in,” Brenda told me a few years ago. Gino has no direct connection to Saugus, but the town residents who watch him play apparently love him, appreciate his drumming skills and welcome him every time he returns to Saugus for another performance. Gino is 16 ½ and in the ninth grade at Whittier Tech. He’s been drumming for 16 years of his life, according to Brenda. “He mainly plays drums, but knows how to play guitar and bass as well. He has performed for seven years for Saugus Founders Day,” Brenda says. Gino’s brother, Rocco, is 14 ½ and also attends Whittier Tech. He is also musically talented. He mainly plays guitar, but also plays the drums, bass keyboard and trombone. “Both my parents loved music and were a big influence on us,” Brenda told me. “My parents moved out of Saugus [in] 1978. I am not a Saugus grad. I graduated from Peabody High. I lived in Saugus for 12 years and only went to Lynnhurst School,” she said. But Saugus remains part of her roots – and for good reason. “I have seven siblings and five of them graduated from Saugus High School,” she said. Founders Day Reflections While the weather was great, it’s too bad more Saugus residents weren’t able to get out and enjoy the Founders Day festivities. Some people may still be concerned about the spread of COVID-19, so that could have contributed to some folks staying away. I also noticed that there were fewer booths than in past years. Again, COVID-19 may have had something to do with that. All in all, it was a successful event for the town and its residents. It would be great to see more young people attend – and not just for the fun and games. It’s a way for them to get closer to their Saugus roots and develop an appreciation for what the community’s founding fathers – and more recently, the “Citizen of the Year” Award recipients – did in the history of this town. It’s a great opportunity for them to learn about their local history – and the people whose contributions are celebrated by Founders Day. Founders Day honors the Citizens of Saugus – past and present. It’s a great tradition to keep going. Mums for Youth Soccer Starting today (Friday, Sept. 16), Saugus Youth Soccer will be selling beautiful, hardy mums at Anna Parker Field at 124 Essex St. (next to Fire Station). There will be multiple colors to choose from – red, lavender, yellow, orange and white – priced at $8.00 each. The mums will be sold starting today around 5 p.m.; Saturday, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.; and Sunday (if needed) 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. They have ordered over 300 hardy mums, so don’t hesitate and come down to the field to support Saugus Youth Soccer!

Owls are probably more misunderstood than any other kind of bird. These are hunting birds, yet their sharp beaks and talons are partly hidden under feathers. Owls have more and softer feathers than most other birds, and this unique plumage gives them a plump, rounded look. Add an upright posture and huge eyes set in front like ours, and you have what looks irresistibly like a small, bemused person wearing a fur coat. In reality, owls are superbly adapted nocturnal hunters. This program shows how owls use their specialized powers of sight, hearing and flight to survive and thrive. A variety of live North American owls provides the focus of this presentation. WINGMASTERS is a partnership of two people dedicated to increasing public understanding and appreciation of North American birds of prey. Julie Anne Collier and Jim Parks are both licensed wildlife rehabilitators based in Massachusetts. Together they care for injured birds of prey at their center in Leverett, Mass. Most of the birds they rehabilitate can ultimately be released back into the wild, but in some cases the birds are left permanently handicapped. Julie and Jim are further licensed to provide a home for these non-releasable raptors and to use them for educational programs. Since 1994, WINGMASTERS has presented over 10,000 programs at schools, libraries and museums throughout New England This program is supported in part by a grant from the Saugus Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Mass Cultural Council, a state agency.

Saugus Action Volunteers for the Environment (SAVE) is pleased to sponsor the following free educational program as part of Breakheart Reservation’s First Annual Fall Family Festival on Saturday, Oct. 1, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Working together with its community partners – the Department of Conservation & Recreation (DCR) and the Friends of Breakheart – SAVE is excited to sponsor the program “Owls: Silent Hunters of the Night” as a wonderful opportunity for everyone to view local wildlife up close and personal, as well as learn more about these incredible animals. This environmental education program about owls will be presented by York Center for Wildlife of Maine at 11:00 a.m. and again at 1:00 p.m., both at the Breakheart Gazebo area located next to the Visitor’s Center. The entire Festival will run from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., with a number of activities available. SAVE will also sponsor the “It’s New to You” SWAP once again this year at the Festival. The SWAP – an effort to help keep usable items out of the waste stream – will be held from 10:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at Breakheart’s Christopher P. Dunne Visitor Center. The SWAP is part of SAVE’s continuing efforts to increase recycling by repurposing still usable goods and reducing what is put out as trash and incinerated. The SWAP is another free event – no money, just a simple swap. You can bring items or take items; you do not have to do both. Bring usable items in good condition to the SWAP, typically those things you no longer want but that are too good to throw away, and perhaps find a treasure or two to take home with you. (Please, do not bring items that require special disposal.) SAVE and DCR will also sponsor a short ecological tree tour, led by SAVE member Ryan Duggan, to help introduce visitors to the large variety of trees within Breakheart Reservation.

Peter A. Rossetti Jr. of the Friends of Breakheart was optimistic about the fall festival – despite the fire that was burning for several weeks. DCR has had tree cutting crews set to go into the woods to remove the dead wood so that visitors are not exposed to the dangers of falling trees. “This will be the First Annual Breakheart Family Festival,” Rossetti said. “It had been called the Fall Festival in the past and it was something we had been going to for 20 years. It’s going to be the same idea, but they will do away with pumpkin-decorating, which DCR just doesn’t have the staff to do anymore,” he said. “DCR is downplaying the hands-on arts and crafts decorating of pumpkins. We do expect face-painting, some music activities and games for kids to play.” Rossetti said he believes the festival will include a petting zoo. There will be a mounted unit, either from the State PoTHE SOUNDS | SEE PAGE 15

If you have children who could use an opportunity to get into a more healthy lifestyle – which might in turn – lead to better academic scores, consider getting them to sign up for Youth Cross Country. Here’s a simple outline of what this entails: Who: any Saugus child in grades 1 through 5. When: Tuesdays and Thursdays, 3:45 to 4:45 p.m. at the Belmonte Track; Saturdays, 10 to 11:30 a.m. at the Visitor Center at Breakheart Reservation. Dates: The program will last through Nov. 15. Why: to learn to enjoy cross-country running and make new friends. Cost: $100 for new runners; $50 for returning runners. This weekly program will be guided by Coaches Steve Boudreau and Chris Tarantino. Children will learn good stretching techniques and the basics of exercise and cross-country running. Best of all, this will be a great way to make new friends. Participants need to wear a good pair of sneakers, dress in comfortable running clothes and bring a water bottle. For details, contact Coach T (Not Mr. T.) at 781-854-6778. Sounds like a worthwhile and affordable fitness program with lots of upside for grade school kids. Healthy Students-Healthy Saugus program resumes for the 22-23 school year (Editor’s Note: The following info is from an announcement submitted by Julie Cicolini, a member of the Board of Directors for Healthy Students-Healthy Saugus, providing information about the return of the program for the new school year.) Who we are: Healthy Students-Healthy Saugus (HS2) is a nonprofit group of volunteers who are helping to offset food insecurity in households. HS2 provides students/ families who enroll in the program a supply of nutritious food for when school lunches and breakfasts are unavailable to them on weekends. How HS2 can help you: HS2 bags are distributed at Saugus Public schools on Fridays to take home. Bags include such items as peanut butter, canned meals/ soups/tuna/vegetables, pasta, fruit cups, cereal, oatmeal, goldfish, pretzels and granola bars. All food is provided to children free of charge. It is our hope these resources will support the health, behavior and achievement of every student who participates. To sign up go here to complete online form: https://forms. gle/gmMGguycSHBdziuE9 Want to partner with us: We would love to partner with organizations, sports teams, youth groups, PTOs, businesses and individuals to assist in feeding students of Saugus. To learn more about how you can partner with us, visit the Healthy Students-Healthy Saugus Facebook page or email us at HS2Saugus@gmail.com. HS2 relies on donations to create take-home bags for a weekend full of meals. Checks can also be sent directly to: Salem Five C/O Healthy Students-Healthy Saugus, 855-5 Broadway, Saugus, MA 01906. Online donations can also be made at: https://givebutter.com/HealthySaugus MassDEP officials to visit Saugus on Sept. 28 If you have concerns about whether to close the ash landfill near the WIN Waste Innovations trash-to-energy plant on Route 107 or support its expansion, this is a meeting that you might want to mark down on your calendar. Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (MassDEP) representatives are scheduled to meet with town officials and concerned residents at 6 p.m. on Sept. 28 in the second floor auditorium at Town Hall for what is expected to be a discussion on the potential future of the ash landfill. The meeting comes at a time when WIN Waste Innovation officials have offered to pay the town up to $18.8 million in return for using the ash landfill for another 25 years. A major obstacle to any deal would be whether MassDEP would allow extending the life of the ash landfill – which is expected to meet its capacity by the end of 2025. Volunteer to serve on a town board The Saugus Board of Selectmen is accepting applications for appointments to the Saugus Cemetery Commission for the Town of Saugus. This is a volunteer/nonpaid position for Saugus residents. Those interested may submit a letter of interest / resume, no later than today, Sept. 16, to: Saugus Board of Selectmen, Saugus Town Hall, 298 Central St., Suite 4, Saugus, MA 01906. “Saugus 411” is coming soon! Selectman Corinne Riley has been busy, helping to organize “Saugus 411.” “Dialing 4-1-1 was the old way to get information on the phone,” Riley said this week. “On the logo we use, it’s buttons to push the 411. The younger people will never know what it was like to call for a phone number.” In an email this week, Riley updated us on what’s been done and what’s left to do for the special orientation event for new Saugus residents – Saugus 411 – which is set for Oct.15 from 9 a.m. to noon. “Invitations went out to the newly-moved in residents. The list did not include all of 2022, just the beginning of the year I believe,” Riley said. “We did include some of 2020 and 2021 as that was the first list we were supposed to have invited pre-pandemic. However, hopefully with information in papers and social media, they will know that even though it’s an invitation to new residents, it is also open to all who want to come by. “There are many people who have lived here for years and don’t know some of the things that are ongoing here. Then next year, if this is a success and we would like to hold it again, we will send invites out to the previous year of newly moved in residents. “Invitations to the non-profit organizations, houses of worship, committees that I could find that were still active. We have already received a dozen confirmed tables to get their information to the residents and they were just mailed out on Thursday. I’m sure we missed some, but hopefully by spreading the word, it will get to others we may have missed. “The other part of the schedule besides the tables of information, there will be a tour by students of the new High/ Middle school complex. I’m glad the district will be a part of this event. They will also be hosting tables to get their information on their educational programs. “We will be getting information out on social media to all Saugus businesses and services to see if they want to send business cards, or menus, or pens, etc. Nothing monetary, but to promote their businesses in a ‘welcome bag’ that we will be giving out. “There will be tables to help residents on town permitting, voting, CHARM center, and other town questions we can help them with. Also, we will be passing out a list of State and local elected officials with contact information so they know who they are and will help them with what precinct they live in to give them their Town Meeting representatives. “I really feel this is a great community outreach and hope we get a great turnout.” Stay tuned for more details, Saugus residents, especially newcomers. Saugus seeks student poll workers Town Clerk Ellen Schena’s Office is looking for student election workers. It is a great way for them to learn how their government functions and how important it is to vote. Sixteen-year-old students are eligible to work a half day (six to eight hours); 17-18-yearold students may work a full day (eight to 12 hours). All students can receive community service, which is imperative in order to satisfy their high school requirement mandated for graduation, or they can be paid for their hours worked. In addition, the Town Clerk’s Office will gladly write letters of recommendation for National Honor Society, Colleges, etc. Interested students can stop by Town Hall or contact the Town Clerk’s Office to apply for work. Ask for Andrew DePatto, the Saugus Election Coordinator. He can be reached at 781-231-4102. Food pantry seeks volunteers Here’s a message from Pastor Joe Hoyle of Cliftondale Congregational Church about a collaborative community commitment to help needy Saugus residents: “The Saugus United Parish Food Pantry is a partnership between the churches in Saugus to ensure that no one in our community faces food insecurity. “With faithful donations and volunteers, we have been able to give out thousands of meals to our neighbors in need throughout the years. “The Food Pantry is open every Friday from 9:30am-11am, distributing pre-packaged groceries (including meat and produce) at 50 Essex St. “We are always in need of volunteers. If you would like to volunteer or donate, please contact Pastor Joe Hoyle, Executive Director at office@clindalecc.org or 781-233-2663.” 1979/1980 Class BBQ See your Saugus Classmates and Friends!

Page 16 THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – FriDAy, SEpTEmbEr 16, 2022 Pioneer Charter School of Science in Saugus National School Lunch Program and the School Breakfast Program Pioneer Charter School of Science II (PCSS II) will be participating in the National School Lunch Program and/or the School Breakfast Program. As part of this program, PCSS II will offer healthy meals every school day. The Massachusetts legislature has provided funding to make meals available at no cost to all students during school year 2022-2023, regardless of household income. However, families should still complete a Meal Benefit Application as this provides data for key funding for academic resources and may also connect families to additional benefits. This data will also support the additional funds provided by the Commonwealth for this pilot. Qualifications for children to receive free or reduced price meals include: belonging to a household whose income is at or below the Federal Income Eligibility Guidelines, belonging to a household that receives public assistance, or if the child is homeless, migrant, runaway, foster, or participates in a Head Start or Even Start pre-K program. Household size and income criteria are used to determine eligibility for free and reduced-price benefits if the household does not receive assistance or the children are not in the other categories mentioned above. Children can get free or reduced-price meals if the household’s gross income falls at or below the limits on the Federal Income Eligibility Guideline chart.

Application forms are being distributed to all households with a letter informing households of the availability of free and reduced-price meals for their children and what is required to complete on the application. Applications also are available at the Main Office and on the PCSS II website. Only one application is required for all children in the household and the information provided on the application will be used for the purpose of determining eligibility and verification of data. Applications may be verified at any time during the school year by the school or other program officials. An application for free or reduced-price benefits cannot be approved unless it contains complete eligibility information as indicated on the application and instructions. In the operation of child feeding programs, no child will be discriminated against because of race, sex, color, national origin, age, or disability. Families can apply for benefits at any time. If a household member becomes unemployed or if the household size increases, the household should contact the school. Such changes may make the children of the household eligible for benefits if the household’s income falls at or below the Federal Guidelines. Contact the Saugus Main Office at 781-666-3907 or the Beverly Main Office at 978-818-1016 at any time to request an application. Under the provisions of the free and reduced-price policy, administration will review applications and determine eligibility. Parents or guardians dissatisfied with the ruling of the official may wish to discuss the decision with the determining official on an informal basis. Parents wishing to make a formal appeal for a hearing on the decision may make a request either orally or in writing to the PCSS Network office, 466 Broadway, Everett MA 02149, 617-294-4737 When known to PCSS II, households will be notified of their children’s eligibility for free meals if they are members of households receiving assistance from the: • .Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP); • .Food Distribution Program on Indian Reservations (FDPIR); or • .Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), if the State program meets Federal standards. An application is not required for free meal benefits for Assistance Program participants and all of the children in the household are eligible for free meal benefits. If any children were not listed on the notice of eligibility, or if a household does not receive a notice of eligibility, the household should contact the school to have free meal benefits extended to them. Participants in the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children (WIC) may be eligible for free or reduced-price meals, but they will need to turn in an application including household size and total income. When known to PCSS II, households will also be notified of any child’s eligibility for free meals if the individual child is considered “Other Source Categorically Eligible”, because the child is categorized, as defined by law as: foster, homeless, migrant, or runaway. If any children were not listed on the notice of eligibility, the household should contact the school about their eligibility through the list above, or should submit an income application. Households notified of their children’s eligibility must contact the school if the household chooses to decline the benefits.

THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – FriDAy, SEpTEmbEr 16, 2022 Page 17 Saugus Gardens in the Summer Here’s what’s blooming in town this week to make your walks more enjoyable By Laura Eisener O f the many activities and rituals attending Queen Elizabeth II’s passing, one deeply connected with the garden is the old Celtic custom of bringing the news to the bees. It was a tradition when someone in the household has died to announce major family news to the beehives, drape them in black ribbons and ask the bees not to leave. In 1858, Massachusetts poet John Greenleaf Whittier wrote a poignant poem, “Telling the Bees,” which describes the custom of reassuring the bees in the hive that they will still be cared for despite changes in the household: “Stay at home pretty bees, fly not hence!” Some versions of the ritual stipulate that the news must be sung, or at least spoken in rhyme. While the custom is largely forgotten these days, Queen Elizabeth’s beekeeper is reported to have followed this more elaborate version. The shrubs spelling out SAUGUS in the center of town were all perfectly clipped for Founders Day, and that evening the full harvest moon shone down on the town. Although the calendar may say it’s fall, the weather has been warm and only a few trees have leaves turning color so far. Plenty of flowers are still in bloom, and One of the birds that often visit the turning basin at the Saugus Ironworks, this great blue heron watches for small fish. (Courtesy photo to The Saugus Advocate by Laura Eisener) This viceroy butterfly (Limenitis archippus) often avoids predators because it resembles the poisonous monarch butterfly, which is larger and lacks the horizontal black markings that help identify the viceroy. (Courtesy photo to The Saugus Advocate by Joanie Allbee) many of them are regularly visited by bees and butterflies. Some birds are beginning to migrate, while others plan on sticking around. This makes it an interesting time to birdwatch, since there may be some unusual species visiting our feeders or feasting along their travels. The great blue heron (Area herodias) may be stocking up on fish in the Saugus River, and egrets can often be seen in the marsh or flying overhead.

Collaborating with Nancy on the project were Soupi Sayles, Joyce and Al Rodenhiser and Susan Hobbs. These fall annuals can tolerate cooling weather but will not survive a hard freeze. We can still hope to enjoy them for another month or more. The red fountain grass is a colorful relative of the popular perennial species of fountain grass (Pennisetum alopecuroides), which has green foliage and foxtail shaped flowers that may be briefly lavender or pink before turning tan for the remainder of the fall and winter. The fluffy cockscombs are also known (mostly in the United Kingdom) as Prince of Wales’ feathers. They come in a wide range of hot colors, including hot pink, burgundy, white, orange and the red and yellow seen here. There is a shorter variety with more curled flower stalks that might be a reminder of ceremonial military headgear – crested cockscomb (Celosia argentea). The orange cosmos can also be found in yellow and is shorter than the pink, white and magenta species (Cosmos bipinnatus) that is somewhat more familiar to most people. While these plants start blooming earlier in the summer, they are tolerant of cool weather and likely to perform well beyond A barrel of fall flowers on the library lawn is the creative work of the garden club’s Nancy Sayles, with help from Soupi Sayles, Joyce and Al Rodenhiser and Susan Hobbs.

The lowest of the plants in this barrel is the one most often considered a fall plant, since it does not really develop its colors and size until late in the summer. Ornamental kale is not inedible, but its colorful leaves are a bit denser in texture and usually less flavorful than varieties grown for food. The leaves often have blue-green, white and purple foliage which can still look good after a light frost or two. It takes an artist’s eye to create Kelly Slater’s beautiful bouquet combining flowers from her garden and from the store: bright red fruit and green leaves of linden viburnum (Viburnum dilatatum), gold from false sunflower (Heliopsis helianthoides) and black-eyed Susan (Rudbeckia fulgida), blue-lilac from New York aster (Symphiotrichum novi-belgii) and gray foliage and flower stocks of sweet wormwood (Artemesia annua).

THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – FriDAy, SEpTEmbEr 16, 2022 Page 19 RALLY | FROM PAGE 11 that must be called out and condemned whenever and wherever it occurs. Using this tragedy to spread false, destructive and divisive narratives harms our communities and sense of security and disgraces the memory of the victims from that day. Join us in condemning these activities and in recommitting ourselves to upholding our community values of justice.” Saugus Board of Selectmen Chair Anthony Cogliano was among the local officials speaking at the Wednesday night rally. “I commend my fellow Chairman from Danvers and their entire Board of Selectmen and want them to know the Town of Saugus and its Board of Selectmen will not condone public displays of anti Semitism either,” Cogliano said, referring to an incident that happened later in Danvers. On Saturday night, 10 masked individuals gathered on the Rail Trail bridge over Route 114 in Danvers, according to a statement signed by members of the Danvers Board of Selectmen. The group “held a large banner displaying a false, destructive, and divisive anti-Semitic message linked to 9/11. These individuals appear to be associated with the same hate group which has recently spread disgraceful propaganda in Danvers and surrounding communities,” the statement said. “We want to be clear that we reject this hateful, anti-Semitic and discriminatory behavior. Not only does this incident spread hate, but it perpetuates misinformation regarding 9/11. Groups like this also try to deny and obscure the brutal truth surrounding the atrocities committed against Jewish people, other marginalized groups, and their supporters during the Holocaust.” Ruth Berg, 90, who has been a Saugus resident for 55 years, said she is “proud to be Jewish” after attending the rally. “It was very heart-warming to see so many non-Jews who came to support the condemnation of the recent anti-Semitic act in Saugus,” she said.
