Vogler A bout 300 people gathered at Riverside Cemetery last Saturday for a special ceremony to rededicate the Civil War Burial Plot. But unoffi cially, it was “Gordie Shepard Day” that the crowd celebrated in the cemetery. People really came to pay tribute to Shepard – the humble Saugus resident and Vietnam War veteran who instigated a massive restoration project at the site of the General Edward Winslow Hincks Post No. 95 Grand Army of the Republic Burial Plot.

Page 2 THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, October 4, 2019 Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War perform dedication ceremony at Riverside By Mark E. Vogler he crowd paused for several poignant minutes of silence as they paid their respects to long departed Saugonians who served their country more than a century and a half ago. Four people representing Saugus American Legion Post 210 and Saugus Veterans of Foreign War Post 2346 went to the lectern to read the names of the 138 soldiers and sailors who enlisted from the town for T duty in the Civil War. “For some of these heroes from Saugus, it will be the fi rst time that their names have been read out loud in over a hundred years,” said Edward J. Norris, commander-in-chief of the National Organization of the Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War. “We are here to honor their memory and let the world know that they and their sacrifi ces are not forgotten,” he said.

The Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War is a fraternal organization headquartered in Harrisburg, Pa., that is dedicated to preserving the history and legacy of veteran heroes who fought and worked to save the Union during the American Civil War. The group, which was organized in 1881 and was chartered by Congress in 1954, is considered the legal heir and successor to the Grand Army of the Republic (G.A.R.). The G.A.R. was a fraternal organization comprised of veterans of the Union Army, Navy, Marines and Reserve Cutter Service (Coast Guard) who served in the Civil War. At its peak, there were 410,000 G.A.R. members in posts scattered across the country in 1890. That was also a high point for Civil War commemorative and monument dedication ceremonies. With the death of its fi - nal member in 1956, the G.A.R. dissolved. The Sons now carries on some of the traditions of the G.A.R., including the dedication ceremonies of Civil War Burial Plots, like the one last Saturday. “This may be the only ceremony done here in decades,” Norris said in an interview last Saturday. “But we probably do three or four of these in Massachusetts a year.” There are more than 7,000 members across the country, covering every state. There’s a camp in London, and some members live in Canada, according to Norris, who lives in Lancaster. Members of the Sons must be able to race their family ties back to Civil War veterans. “You can join as an associMASTER OF CEREMONIES: Edward J.

Once I did, I applied for full membership,” Norris said. “My lineage to the Civil War was with second-great-granduncles. They were my secondgreat-grandmother’s brothers – four of them. Three served in Maine regiments, one served in a Wisconsin regiment. He moved to Wisconsin to be a logger,” Norris said. “We still have what’s considered ‘real sons.’ These are people who are still living whose fathers served in the Civil War. The last Confederate ‘real son’ just passed away about a week ago,” he said. “We still have three real sons left. They’re all in their 90s and two of them are brothers.” So, what determined who was buried in the G.A.R. Burial Plot in Riverside Cemetery? Norris said there was no special criteria for the 25 men who are buried in the plot. He said the majority of Civil War soldiers preferred to be buried in family plots. “They may not have any other plot, so that’s why they were placed here. And they could have requested to be buried here,” he said. “Our ceremonies – like what we did today – date back to the G.A.R. post. The last Civil War veteran that died was in 1954,” he said. Saugus fi refi ghter thankful smoke detectors were working when fi re broke out in his basement F ire officials are crediting a smoke detector for a quick knockdown of a fi re in the home of an on-duty Saugus firefighter early yesterday. The unnamed fi refi ghter was on the scene with Engine 1 and able to quickly extinguish the basement fire that was spreading up the stairs, according to a report on the Saugus Firefi ghters Local 1003 Facebook page. “Luckily for his family they had working smoke detectors in their home and the doors to the basement and bedroom were closed which helped prevent the spread of this fi re and everyone was able to get out safely,” the report said. The firefighter went onto the Facebook page to express his gratitude. “I thank God profusely that everyone is safe,” the firefighter said. “Doing this job, you never think that this would happen to you. Smoke Detectors Save Lives!”

THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, October 4, 2019 ~ Political Announcement ~ Page 7 Manoogian seeks to serve on Saugus Town Meeting again I am pleased to announce my candidacy for Saugus Town Meeting for Precinct 10. I wish to take this opportunity to share with the voters of Precinct 10 my experience, my reasons for running and what issues I would address over the next two years if elected. I am a lifelong Saugus resident. I attended and graduated, as did my three children from the Saugus Public Schools. I am a homeowner, taxpayer and water and sewer rate payer. I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree from Salem State College (1976), a Master’s Degree in Public Administration from Suff olk University (1991) and a second Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership from Salem State College (2001). My experience in Saugus Town Government spans over thirty years having served multiple terms on the Board of Selectmen and Town Meeting. I also served as both a member and Chairman of the Saugus Finance Committee, Chairman of the most recent Charter Commission, member of the Economic Development Committee, and Aggregate Quarry Post Closure Committee. Most recently I served as a member of the Saugus School Committee. My reasons for running in this election are primarily to give the people of Precinct 10 a voice on issues that are both unique to East Saugus and the community at large. Over the last term of two years there were 12 town meetings. Attendance at these 12 meetings for Precinct 10 Town Meeting Members was, in my opinion, poor. The most recent Town Meeting of September 23 only had 35 of 50 members present. Only 2 of the 5 Precinct 10 representatives were present. In fact an analysis of Precinct 10 Town Meeting Member attendance over the last term shows a collective absentee rate of 42%. That is unacceptable. I wish to remind Precinct 10 voters that in over 30 years of experience I only missed one posted meeting. I was disappointed to see the loss of a 1 million dollar grant that would have restored salt marshes along Eastern Avenue, to see wasted funds on cement culverts for fl ood control stacked at the end of Bristow Street for over a decade, to see the lack of enforcement by the Conservation Commission on the I-95 sand removal project to be completed as proposed, and to see the shuttered Ballard School turn into a neighborhood eyesore of weeds and decay. A CANDIDATE AGAIN: Longtime former Saugus Town Meeting Member Peter Z, Manoogian, Sr. wants to return to local government. (Saugus Advocate fi le photo by Mark E. Vogler) rienced advocate and an experienced voice. I will not rubber stamp double digit increases in water and sewer rates. I will speak out, as I have in the past, when our schools do not receive the operational budget recommended by the Superintendent and School Committee. I know how Town Meeting operates and I will not be shy about inserting articles or making motions to amend articles or to compel a vote. Over the next two years I would like to work on the following issues: First, I would work to have Saugus join the National Flood Insurance Program’s (NFIP) Community Rating System (CRS) which would result in lowering fl ood insurance premiums from 5% to 45% for Saugus home and business owners. Flood insurance premiums are a hidden tax on most East Saugus property owners as well as other Saugus homeowners living near streams and waterways. This depresses property values and makes it more difficult to sell a home. This would require tighte r fl oodplain regulations, community education and coordination of flood mitigation eff orts. Other communities have been successful in eff orts to reduce flood insurance premiEast Saugus needs an expe- ums for their property owners and Saugus can too. Second, I would propose a post closure committee for the Wheelabrator ash landfi ll that would be modeled after the successful Aggregate Quarry Post Closure Committee which I was a member of. Aggregate came to the table to discuss and agree on a closure date and the same opportunity should be off ered to Wheelabrator. Let’s fi nd out if they truly wish to work with Saugus on a closure plan. Third, I will propose legislation that will once and for all prevent any elected official, during their term of offi ce and at least six months thereafter, from seeking, accepting, or being off ered a paid position or contractual relationship with Saugus government. This practice must end. The people you elect should serve only you and not have their voice or vote compromised by competing allegiances. Fourth, I would ask Town Meeting to reinstate the sidewalk committee disbanded by the present Town Moderator. Saugus paid for engineering work to continue the sidewalk from Seagirt Avenue to Ballard Street. This was the last leg of a continuous new sidewalk that extended from North Revere to Lynn. The project should be fi nished. These are but a few of the initiatives I will propose if elected. As I always have, I will listen to your concerns, advocate for Precinct 10, and be present to vote. Thank you for your consideration.

Page 8 THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, October 4, 2019 ~ Political Announcement ~ Wallace seeks third term as Town Meeting member for Precinct 5 am Ron Wallace, Precinct 5 Town Meeting member. I decided to seek re-election which will be my third term if the residents vote me back in on Nov 5. I have perfect attendance in my fi rst two terms. I have never missed a meeting or vote. Attendance is a huge problem on Town Meeting in my opinion. I’m also a lifelong resident and a class of 1987 SHS graduate. I have two children still in Saugus Public Schools and I have zero personal agendas. Here is what I have accomplished since being elected. (1) I had a crosswalk successfully installed on Elm Street near the Lynnhurst School. (2) I proudly supported the 21 I custodians in their fi ght to save their jobs. (3) I voted to limit the ash pile at Wheelabrator. (4) I also fought to stop the 222 Central St. project which is now on hold and opposed The Ridge development at Prankers Pond. (5) Worked hard to get new Middle/High School vote approved.

THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, October 4, 2019 ~ Political Announcement ~ Page 9 Saugus Police Offi cer Montano seeks offi ce of selectman M y name is Domenic Montano and I am proud to announce my candidacy for the Board of Selectmen for the Town of Saugus. I currently serve in the role of Police Offi cer for the Town of Saugus for the past 6 years. Serving as a law enforcement offi cer for the Town of Saugus has truly given me the pride to keep the Town and its residents safe. In the past three years, I have been certifi ed by the state as a Field Training Offi cer for new offi cers, as well as, a part of support group for law enforcement offi cers who deal with critical incidents. Most recently, I was appointed to the role of Community Events Coordinator as well as the Social Media Representative for the Saugus Police Patrol Officer’s Union. I have thoroughly enjoyed this role the most. In this role, I am given the greatest gift of being able to truly interact with my community on a positive level. Along with the help of my brother offi cers, Matthew Donahue and William Cash, we have been able to bring back a form of community policing whom I am happy to call not only a friend, but my family. I couldn’t even begin to tell you how proud I was of my town that day, seeing you all line up, waving your Bruin flags, Police fl ags and cheering us on. I would be lying if I said I didn’t cry behind the tinted windows of my cruiser. In 2010, I earned a bacheA CANDIDATE: Offi cer Domenic Montano. (Courtesy Photo to The Saugus Advocate) – which in this day in age is extremely crucial. I have been directly responsible for the creation of the “Cars and Cops Car Show” which in its fi rst year, raised $5000.00 for Sgt. Michael Chesna’s Family of the Weymouth Police Department, and just over $12,000 this year which will help erect a K9 Memorial for the Saugus Police K9’s of the past. I also played a major role in the planning of our beloved K9 Bruin’s Final Ride through the town. As you may know, K9 Bruin was the faithful partner of recently retired Offi cer Tim Fawcett, lor’s degree in Criminal Justice Administration from Salem State University. I am also a proud graduate of Saugus High School, class of 2006. I am honored to say that along with living in Saugus, my amazing parents, Fred and Mae Montano along with my brother, Fred and his Fiancée Kelsey, Andrew and his wife, Patty and my little sister, Angela, all live in town. In the past year, I became a godfather to my brother and sisterin-law’s baby girl, Olivia Mae Montano and I haven’t stopped smiling since. I feel extremely fortunate to have been able to grow up in Saugus from the age of 14 and then be given the utmost honor to protect the Town that has given me so much. I feel it almost my duty to take on the task of Selectman to further continue giving back to my community. I want to continue to keep Saugus an affl uent, safe, happy and welcoming place to live and operate small businesses. I am extremely approachable and consider myself a “people person.” There isn’t one time I won’t put myself out there to engage in good solid conversation or listen to people’s concerns. I am asking you for your vote and I promise to continue to be committed to you and our Town, just as I continue to do as a law enforcement Offi cer. It would be an honor to become a selectman for the Town to further ensure the progress of Saugus and to also bring change as well as new ideas to our great Town!

Page 10 THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, October 4, 2019 The Sounds of Saugus he Sounds of Saugus By Mark E. Vogler Here are a few tidbits that you might want to know about this week in Saugus. A “Shout-Out” for Nicholas Thompson Precinct 3 Town Meeting Member Richard Thompson recommended his 12-year-old son, Nicholas, for some special recognition this week. Nicholas certainly deserves it, especially after receiving the fi rst-ever “Sportsmanship Award” from the Saugus Little League. Executive President Tom Whittredge gave Nicholas the award and State Representative Donald Wong (R-9th Essex) presented him with a citation from the Massachusetts House of Representatives recognizing him for receiving the award and “For being a great teammate and friend.” Nicholas has moved onto announcing games and is about to receive his junior umpire’s training from league offi cial Anthony DiGirolamo, according to his dad. Well done, Nicholas. A “Shout-Out” for Saugus Karate Kung Fu Here’s a special “shout-out” to Saugus Karate Kung Fu for launching its fi fth annual campaign to raise awareness and prevent bullying. Once again, the business – located at 304 Central St. – is off ering a free week of classes to all students in Saugus Public Schools during October and is also hosting a social media campaign to raise awareness. Want to “Shout-Out” a fellow Saugonian? This is an opportunity for our paper’s readers to single out – in a brief mention – remarkable acts or achievements by Saugus residents. Just send an email (mvoge@comcast.net) with the mention in the subject line of “An Extra Shout-Out.” No more than a paragraph. Anything longer might lend itself to a story and/or photo. So, what’s the big deal about MCAS? As soon as I learned that the state Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) had posted this year’s MCAS results on its website last week, I decided it was the most important news for our readers, especially the parents of children attending Saugus Public Schools. It took about six hours to navigate the DESE website, retrieve the information and make printouts of each of the six schools for this year and last year and their Offi cial Accountability Reports for the last two years, as well as the corresponding information for the district as a whole. I know that newspapers are spending less time tracking down MCAS data and writing about it. But with the information in hand, I decided to spend another four hours analyzing the information and writing the front page story for last week’s Saugus Advocate. So, there were a few stories that didn’t get done to make time and have adequate space to let readers know 505 Broadway Everett, MA 02149 Tel: 617-387-1120 www.gkdental.com • Family Dentistry • Crowns • Bridges • Veneers/Lumineers • Dental Implants • All on 4 Dental Implants • Emergency Dentist • Kid Friendly Dentist • Root Canals • Dentures • Invisalign Braces • Snap On Smile • Teeth Whitening We are the smile care experts for your entire family ing Meeting Expectations or above in several of the younger grades and subjects, but it had a smaller percentage than the state scoring in those categories in grades 7, 8 and 10. “Belmonte made better strides toward meeting its improvement targets during the 2018-19 school year than it did the prior year, but most of the district’s schools made only moderate progress toward their improvement targets.” Stay tuned for more refl ection by folks who truly care about public education in Saugus. A SPECIAL “SHOUT-OUT”: Nicholas Thompson receives the fi rst-ever “Sportsmanship Award” from the Saugus Little League and a legislative commendation “For being a great teammate and friend.” (Courtesy Photo to The Saugus Advocate) what’s going on with MCAS. And certainly, there was some very satisfying as well as very disappointing news for people who care about Saugus Public Schools. Educators, administrators, staff and students at Lynnhurst Elementary should all take a bow as it was recognized as one of the 67 on the “School of Recognition” list. At the same time, educators, administrators and parents of students attending the Belmonte Middle School and Saugus High School can’t be pleased with the overall MCAS scores at those two schools as they were among the lowest 10 percent of schools in the state determined to be “in need of focused/targeted support” and also classified as “requiring assistance or intervention.” That’s not a good look for a school system that within the next 12 months will be opening a new “Saugus MiddleHigh School” for students in grades 6 through 12. I asked DESE Media Relations Coordinator Jacqueline Reis for her take on the MCAS results as they relate to Saugus, and this is how she summed it up: “Lynnhurst was recognized for high In House Dental Plan for $399 (Cleanings, X-Rays, Exams twice a year and 20% OFF Dental work) Schedule your FREE Consultations today growth, so it was recognized for improvement. “If we compare Saugus as a district to the state as a whole, Saugus had a higher percentage of students scorNot a stellar moment for the Saugus School Committee Sometimes it’s wise for elected public offi cials to work on being civil at public meetings, especially when the meetings are being fi lmed. A classic case in point is School Committee Member Linda Gaieski going on the warpath, disparaging parents and accusing them of dragging their children down to a School Committee meeting to support the janitors who were about to get laid off . I’m not a big follower of social media, but the segment that was videotaped by SaugusTV and edited by The Point Media (TPM) is well worth watching if you plan on voting for School Committee candidates in the Nov. 5 Town Elections. Somebody emailed me a link and I viewed it, and I agree that it’s not a good look for School Committee Member Gaieski or the entire School Committee. Apparently, it went viral. Something like more than 18,000 hits from viewers. The Point Media notes on its website for June 23: “School committee member Linda Gaieski was met with a fi ery response when parents confronted her about a statement she made, saying they dragged their children to support the custodians. (Video courtesy of Saugus TV & edit made by TPM)” Two parents seen at the lectern in the School Committee Meeting Room took great umbrage to Gaieski’s comments and gave her a tongue-lashing while a raucous audience booed at the School Committeewoman and applauded the mothers for speaking their mind.

Page 14 THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, October 4, 2019 was recovering from a football injury with the Patriots. She died in 1998. Garron was recruited by coach A fullback remembered By Th e Old Sachem, Bill Stewart I f you watched the New England Patriots in the 60s, you saw a remarkable fullback, Lawrence “Larry” Garron, Junior. Garron was born in Marks, Miss., on May 23, 1937, and died in Framingham, Mass., on September 13, 2019. I was going to Boston University during this period and could pick up tickets in the Patriots’ offi ce in Kenmore Square after class. During his time the Patriots played home games at Bill Stewart The Old Sachem Fenway Park. The also played home games at Boston University Field during the early years. His family moved from Mississippi to Argo, Ill., where his father became a police offi cer. Garron was the oldest of 10 children. His mother, the former Savannah Sykes, worked at the local Corn Products Refi nery to help support the large family. Garron met LaBerta Harris when he was a multi-sports star at nearby Lions Township High and she a member of the track team. They married in 1959. The couple had three sons: Andre, John of Waltham and Arnold of Bedford, N.H. All three played football along with other sports at Framingham High School in Massachusetts. LaBerta tossed footballs to Larry in their backyard in Framingham when he Larry Saban as a three sport-star at Western Illinois University. He was the star of the undefeated and untied team of 1959, which was his junior season. He and Saban both left at this time to join the Patriots, Larry as a fullback, Lou Saban, the head coach. As a Patriot, he was famous for his 85-yard touchdown dash in Buff alo in 1961, which is still a Patriots record. Patriots legend Gino Cappelletti had this to say about his teammate: “He was an important member of those early Patriot teams; I respected his amazing talent and his character.” Garron was six feet tall and weighed 195 pounds as a Patriot, rather small by today’s standards, but in class with the times. During his eight-year career with the Patriots, he appeared in 99 season games and two playoff games. Over the seasons he ran for 2,299 yards; his best was in 1962 when he had 686 yards rushing and a single touchdown with an average yardage of 28 yards. In the playoff season of 1963, Boston played two games: an Eastern Conference and League Championship game. He also was the kick returner for the Patriots during his career. During his years with the Patriots he scored 14 rushing touchdowns and 26 pass reception TDs. Garron was an American Football League All-Star in 1961, 1963, 1964 and 1967. He was elected to the Patriots All-Time AFL (1960s decade) Team. In the off -season Garron learned and practiced various forms of martial arts, holding ranks in Kenpō (fi rst law), Hakkō-ryu Jujutsu, Gojū-ryū (hard soft system) Shintō Musō-ryū, Yoshitsune Jujutsu and Taekwondo. Garron received a bachelor’s degree from Boston State College and a master’s from Cambridge College. He became a professor at Bunker Hill Community College in Charlestown, teaching marketing, writing, economics and management courses. He also taught Martial Arts after reaching the highest level and taught in Southborough and Framingham. He founded the Framingham Football organization along with teammates Ron Burton and Charlie Long. I was fortunate to watch Garron play in Fenway Park during the 60s, and quarterback Babe Parilli called him “one of the best backs at catching passes that I have ever played with.” He was inducted into the Western Illinois Hall of Fame as a fi nal tribute to a great player and a great man.

Page 16 THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, October 4, 2019 Sachems blanked by Magicians in home opener By Greg Phipps verything looked promising through one quarter when the Saugus Sachems went toe-to-toe with the Marblehead Magicians and were driving deep into enemy territory with the contest still scoreless. The Sachems had the ball inside the Marblehead 40-yard line early in the second quarter, but quarterback Christian Correia had the ball knocked loose on a running play up the middle, and the visitors promptly recovered. From there, the complexion changed drastically as the high-powered Magicians scored on a long touchdown pass on the very next play from scrimmage. That moment seemed to defl ate the Sachems while at the same time igniting Marblehead, which looked sluggish early on. In the end, the contest turned out to be a 43-0 runaway for the visitors. Outside of two drives, one that moved inside the Marblehead 10 late in the second quarter, the Sachems struggled to function effectively E on offense without starting QB Mason Nickolas, who was injured the previous week. Their best scoring chance came at the very end of the fi rst half when, with the Magicians leading 22-0, Correia engineered a march that got the ball to Marblehead’s four-yard line with just seconds left. A 24-yard completion from Correia to Javier Martinez and a pass interference helped advance the ball inside the 10. A score just before the half might have given Saugus a boost emotionally, but it wasn’t to be. Marblehead’s defense was able to hold. A pass to the end zone as time elapsed was intercepted and the Sachems were left with no points. Saugus would not come close to threatening again as undefeated Marblehead (3-0) shut them down over the fi - nal 24 minutes. Meanwhile, the Magicians came alive offensively, scoring on their fi rst three possessions of the second half to coast to victory.

This is a young football team and we’re trying to teach them that there’s one level,” he told the press after the game. “It’s not about wanting it more or trying harder; it’s about execution and details.

Sports update: Boys’ soccer earns third win, girls look to regroup By Greg Phipps he Saugus High School bo y s ’ soc cer team snapped a two-game losing skid with a 3-0 shutout win over Greater Lawrence at Anna Parker Field on Monday. The Sachems connected for three tallies in the first half and made it stand up the rest of the way. The victory improved Saugus’s record to 3-5 after coming off losses to Swampscott and Beverly last week. “I thought we had some really good ball movement and it really helped us to get a rhythm going early,” head coach Josh Hickey told the press after Monday’s win. “We’ve been talking about the importance of ball movement for a while now, so to see it come to fruition in a game like this is always good.” Scoring the Saugus goals in Monday’s win were Elijah Tapia-Gately, Vincent Coluccio and Juan Oliveira. This week posed a challenge, as the Sachems were scheduled to play Northeastern Conference stalwarts Danvers on Wednesday (afT Saugus players Emily Orent and Lindsey McGovern converge on a Beverly forward in last week’s 3-0 loss to the Lady Panthers at Beverly High School.

Last week, the Lady Sachems traveled for a rematch against Beverly at Beverly High School and dropped a 3-0 decision. Once again, Saugus was stingy guarding its own net and made it difficult for the hosts to get good shots at the goal. But offensively the Lady Sachems were unable to mount any real penetration into the other team’s end, as the territorial play clearly favored the Lady Panthers. In a similar game earlier this season, Beverly defeated Saugus, 4-0, at Stackpole Field.

THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, October 4, 2019 Page 17 MEMORY | from page 1 “These men who are buried here and served their country cannot speak for themselves,” VFW Post 2346 Commander James Marshall said of the 25 Civil War soldiers and sailors buried in the plot. “Therefore, on behalf of them, I would like to thank Gordon Shepard for his selfl ess dedication to ensure they would have a beautiful place to rest and pay tribute for their sacrifice to our country.” “If they could stand right now, they would salute him. But they can’t, so I will on their behalf,” he said. The National Organization of the Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War honored Shepard with the organization’s 2019 Founder’s Award for his outstanding service in the memory of Union Civil War Soldiers. It was the group’s only award for the year. Shepard’s name will also be added to a permanent plaque maintained at the National Headquarters of the Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War in Harrisburg, Pa. “As humble as a man could be” Saugus Veterans Council Chairman Steve Castinetti told Shepard “You have done a hell of a job.” “I always want to give Gordie highest honor that can be bestowed upon somebody who is not a member of the Sons. “This is beautiful,” Norris said, as he walked inside the plot, admiring the restoration work. “I wish all towns would do it. I wish all towns would have a person like Gordon to come out and do stuff like this,” he said. It all began with a sunken A TRIBUTE BANNER: A sign outside of Saugus VFW Post 2346 welcomes the Sons of the Union Veterans of the Civil War and Gordon Shepard. some recognition at the cemetery on Memorial Day when we do our ceremony. And low and behold, he can’t be found anywhere,” Castinetti said. “He’s not one of those who looks for recognition or looks for rewards, but he certainly deserves everything we’re giving him today,” he said. State Rep. Donald Wong (R9th Essex) presented Shepard with a citation from the Massachusetts House of Representatives, which recognized his receipt of the Founder’s Award. “We have to remember all the veterans from the past, present and future, because they’re the ones who give us the life we have today,” Wong said. Saugus Historical Society President Laura Eisener hailed Shepard’s work as representing “the true spirit of the Grand Army of the Republic.” SOUNDS | from page 10 If you haven’t seen the video, this one is required viewing for Saugus registered voters. Just google “The Point Media and Linda Gaieski” and make up your own mind whether this is any way for parents to be treated. My eyes tell me it’s no way for the public to be treated. Another chance to hear old Saugus School Buildings story For those folks who missed last Saturday’s PowerPoint presentation of Saugus school buildings hosted by the Saugus Historical Association, you have another chance to check it out. This just in from Laura Eisener, president of the Saugus Historical Society: “At the Saugus Historical Society, Wednesday evening October 9, the Saugus Historical Commission is presenting a talk & power point presentation of pictures of school buildings & class pictures over the years. The presentation begins with one-room schools and progresses through the proud history of each and every school in the Town, those still existing today and those long gone. As soon as 2021 there will only be 3 remaining schools in Saugus. Steve Carlson, National Park Ranger at Charlestown Navy Yard and a member of the Saugus Historical Commission, will provide an introduction. Jean Swanson, Saugus Historical Commission member and chair of 2015’s 200th Anniversary Committee, and “Many people who have gone to attend the graves of their loved ones have noticed how beautiful the cemetery looks as a result of the work he’s done,” Eisener said. Board of Selectmen Chair Debra Panetta called Shepard “a wonderful man … as humble as a man could be …” “I’m here because of my love and everybody else’s love for Gordon Shepard,” she said. “I really appreciate everything you do for the veterans of Saugus, for our community and the United States of America,” Panetta said. “When they say a man is a good man, you are a good man. You are the best.” In an interview after the ceremony, Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War Commanderin-Chief Edward J. Norris said that only one Founder’s Award is given yearly and that it is the Marilyn Carlson, who was the longtime Vice Chair of the Saugus Historical Commission and a former Saugus teacher, will each present portions of the program. This is a great opportunity for long-time Saugonians and those just passing through to have a chance to look back – and forward! – at school days in Saugus. “For those who might be befuddled by the diff erence between the Historical Society and the Historical Commission (and it’s easy to see why this often happens), we can quote the Historical Commission’s own website: “The Saugus Historical Commission, established under Section 8d of Chapter 40 of the Massachusetts General Laws, is the offi cial Town body charged with the identifi cation of properties and sites in the Town of historical signifi cance and is the principal advisor to the Town on matters relating to historic preservation. “The Saugus Historical Society is a private, non-profi t organization dedicated to the preservation of local history through collecting and exhibiting artifacts on local history, publishing booklets on historical topics, and holding public programs on historical themes. “The meeting begins at 7 PM at 30 Main Street, across from the old Center School (shown in the attached photo). Saugus Historical Society will also have on display in the meeting room a few photos and artifacts from our archives relating to Saugus schools, including the typewriter history teacher Dick Provenzano used to write his popular newspaper column about Saugus history. Light refreshments will be served. It is free and open to the public, whether or not you are a Saugus resident or a member of the Saugus Historical Society.” Families and fi re prevention The Saugus Fire Department invites local families to a free Open House on Saturday, Oct. 19, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Families will learn about fi re prevention and participate in fi re safety activities. The program will highlight the National Fire Protection Association’s theme: “Protect Your Family From Fire.” It’s a great way for families to familiarize themselves with fi re safety, household fi re hazards and things they can do to make their homes safer. It’s also a great way to teach kids about fi re safety. Papa Gino’s will provide free pizza and children’s fi re safety coloring sheets at the Open House. The fi rst 100 children will receive a child’s Fire Hat! Kids will also get to meet a special guest, Sparky the Fire Dog.

Norris read a speech about Shepard’s “decades of work in restoring and maintaining the veterans’ graves here in Riverside Cemetery, particularly, for his work in restoring the General Edward Winslow Hincks Post 95 Grand Army of the Republic Civil War Veterans Burial Plot.” Norris noted that Shepard was initially drawn to Riverside Cemetery to visit the gravesite of his old childhood friend – Richard “Dicky” Devine, Jr. – a fellow Vietnam War veteran who was killed in combat in January of 1969. Shepard continued to make frequent visits to his buddy’s grave. “As the years passed, Mr. Shepard notice that his friend’s head stone was beginning to sink into the ground,” Norris said. “He looked at the one beside it and it bore the name of another hero killed during the war.

Then he kept going, doing as many as he could over the course of numerous volunteer hours. “As the years went on, Mr. Shepard had restored 400 gravesites belonging to veterans,” Norris said. Eventually, Shepard began his Civil War Burial Plot restoration project in 2015. “The plaques in the Grand Army of the Republic Plot were in very bad shape. Some were sunk into the ground and almost all of them were unreadable,” Norris said. “Thank Gordon Shepard for all of his tireless service for all of these fallen veterans,” he said. When Shepard accepted the award, he did what he always does: defl ect the credit from himself and praised someone else. Shepard said he got a lot of help in restoring the Civil War Burial Plot, particularly from Nick Milo of the Saugus Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 2346, Dave DeFilippo of Woodlawn Memorials, and Cemetery Department employees Tim Fawcett and Andy DePatto. hopes the public will plan to attend this informative event.

That event is set for 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 12 at the Cpl. Scott J. Procopio Saugus American Legion Post 210, which is located at 44 Taylor St. in Saugus. Riley began her volunteerism when she started the Community Service Club during her first year at Belmonte Middle School. She wanted a project she could work on after school, so she began Saugus Blessings Bags in late 2014, working out of her house. She is the daughter of Christopher and Corinne Riley. She has an older brother and sister in Lynn, Danny Mahoney and Elena Barrett. Highlights of this week’s interview follow. Q: Please tell me a little bit about how Saugus Blessings Bags began – the organization. I understand you were still in school when you started this. So what inspired you? What was the inspiration? A: I was 16 and I was still in high school, and I decided there was not enough accessible help for things that I could do to help people. I didn’t really have a lot of money to be able to go and help homeless people, so I decided that I would do my own funding and my own budgeting and fi gure out what people needed the most and what shelters were asking for the most and just try to target those items and distribute those things to people who needed the help. Q: That’s how Saugus Blessings Bags came into being? A: Yes. I’m the Founder and President, and for the most part it’s just been myself running it. When I decided I wanted to take on projects of larger volume, I put together a Board of Directors of family and friends to help me, and we’ve gotten a lot of support from the town. Saugus Blessings Bags isn’t yet registered as a 501(c)3, but, hopefully, it will be soon. Q: You had a prior interest in the homeless and homelessness? A: Yes. My mother worked a lot with the Mass. Coalition for the Homeless, and I remember working with her when I was a little kid. Q: How old were you? A: Probably four or five. And for several years, and we worked with St. Margaret’s. I remember drawing pictures for the kids and putting them in the pockets of the coats that she would help fundraise for. I’ve always wanted to help people, and I was always taught to give to the less fortunate – whether it was monthe items we needed to get more of. Q: How much did you raise? Please give me a ballpark estimate? A: That’s tough to estimate. We raised money, but we mostly collected goods. Q: You had enough to take care of how many veterans? A: About 30 for our first SAUGUS BLESSINGS BAGS TEAM: Left to right: Olivia Riley, founder and president; Corinne Riley, treasurer; Cristina Palmieri, secretary and social media manager; and Chris Silva, webmaster. (Courtesy Photo to The Saugus Advocate) ey, goods or time – that there was always something people could do to help out. Q: Since your early childhood, you have always had a special affi nity for the homeless? A: Yes. Q: Because of the experience you gained working with your mom? A: Yes. Q: How did it all come down? You decided one day you were going to form a Saugus Blessings Bag? Tell me a little bit about that. A: There was a neighbor who was really accessible to a 16-year-old with no money. I wanted to fi gure out the most cost-effective ways to get these things to people in need, so I started a Facebook Page and started reaching out to people I used to work for – people I used to babysit for or tutor their kids. And I ended up working with the Girl Scouts. And I said, here is my idea. I would like to get some toiletries, gloves and socks to homeless veterans for our fi rst project, and they helped out, and they ended up doing a lot of the purchasing of the goods, and I was able to put the bags together and distributed them. Q: The fi rst project for Saugus Blessings Bags was the homeless veterans? A: Yes – the New England Center for Homeless Vets. Q: You got involved in this through your mom’s activities? A: Yes – but even going into Boston and taking the train with my friends and just seeing people in the streets and knowing that they didn’t have any other options. I mean the shelters were full. They didn’t have another choice. My biggest thing – I want something that people can hold onto after they left the shelters. They provide a lot, but they don’t provide things like toiletries and they can’t always provide clothes. Q: As a child, you got exposed to homelessness. A: Yes. It ’s hard not to, when we live so close to Boston. When you fi nd yourself spending time in the city, there is no way to avoid it. It’s not just one concentrated area; it’s everywhere. Q: How old were you when you fi rst observed it fi rsthand? A: When I was fi rst exposed to it was probably when I was a baby, because there’s really no way to avoid seeing it. I can remember as far back when I was five years old, I would start asking questions like “Why doesn’t that person have a house?” And my mother would explain to me that there were diff erent circumstances that people found themselves in and that there were ways to help, but there’s only so much that you can do. Q: And you were moved by the interaction? A: Of course. I always wanted to help people. It’s just tough to see another person and not feel compassion for their situation. It’s never anyone’s fi rst choice; people fi nd themselves in desperate situations, and you do what you can to help them, because you don’t know when you are going to be in that situation. Or your best friend. Or your mother. Or your father. Or your grandfather. You never know when they are going to run out of money or fi nd a massive medical bill – and that’s it for them. You never know. And this could happen. If people have the resources, they should use it to help out others should they fi nd themselves in a situation like that in the future. Q: You mentioned the Girl Scouts. Were you a Girl Scout? A: No, I wasn’t. I got a lot of volunteers, though, from Troop 555 in Saugus, and I had a couple from Revere. Q: How did things go the fi rst year of Saugus Blessings Bags? A: It went very well. I was really surprised. I learned a lot about the costs and found the cheapest places to buy large quantities of items and about project, and they were bags with toiletries and hygiene products: Advil, cough drops, a little fi rst aid kit, socks and gloves. Q: This was, like, a Christmas thing? A: I decided I wanted to do it shortly after Christmas. It was in the wintertime when I saw people who were in desperate need. We ended up making the delivery – me and my dad – in January of 2015. We had started out in December of 2014. Q: And the project has continued since then? A: I was away for college for a little bit and took a little break from it, but when I decided I was going back into the workforce and I was fi nished with school, I decided to take it on full-time again. And I spend a lot of time on it: every weekend that I have the time. I did go to school for business administration, so I did learn a little bit about marketing. I decided I wanted to make the project bigger. I recruited some of my friends, my mom and my boyfriend to get more hands on deck, basically. We have meetings every month. We have our board of directors. We keep minutes. We keep inventory and a list of donations and who donated what and when. It’s a lot more organized; we’re definitely better with the marketing and getting the word out, posting of events and fundraisers. We’re still working on getting a 501(c) (3) [nonprofit organization], and when we do, we’ll be able to hold a lot more diff erent types of events. Q: Currently you are working on your second drive? A: No, we have had others. Rosie’s Place was the second one. We did The Salvation Army in Saugus a couple of months ago. We’ve been active for about three years now. Q: How many people do you hope to help on the current project? What’s the target? A: I would like to hit 50 people or more. Q: Veterans or a mixed group? A: Just veterans for this one. This will be going to the Soldiers’ Home in Chelsea. Q: How is it going so far? A: It’s going very well. We were passing information at Founders Day and received a lot of cash donations, more money than goods. Then on Saturday, Oct. 12 is our donation drive where people can bring items. We do have a lot of items left over from buying bulk, so we don’t need to buy nearly as much goods this time. We have tons and tons of toothbrushes and toothpaste left over that we will be able to use, so we can spend money on the things that we need to reach our goal of 50. But we’ll do as many bags as we can get, and whatever we have left, we will hold onto for our next project. Q: It’s easy to see a kid in school doing this as a project, but I think it says something about the person who would want to continue doing this after they get out of school. There are so many other things that you could be doing. But you got back into it and now want to help more and more people A: I think the biggest thing why I still do it – I hear these stories about things not getting to the people they’re supposed to. I fi gure if I were in charge of it, I could make sure that people who need the help get it. Right now we let people know where their donation goes. We put pictures on Facebook and email them to people to show them the bags they created with their donation, so they will know what their donation is going to. Q: You have a special spot in your heart for the veterans. Is that because of you mom, or your late grandfather (Louis A. DeSouza, Sr.), who was a war hero? A: My grandfather was in the U.S. Navy, and I defi nitely think about him a lot when I do this. I have worked with the Saugus Veterans Council and have volunteered there to help with events. They’re all great and very nice. I have been involved with them since high school. Q: Let’s talk about your upcoming event. A: It’s set for Oct. 12 at the American Legion: The Veterans Donation Drive to benefi t the Soldiers’ Home in Chelsea. People can bring donations of new toiletries, gloves, socks and other things that can be found on our website, www. saugusblessingsbags.com. People can come and meet the team, have some refreshments and learn about Saugus Blessings Bags and what we are doing, and this will be in honor of Veterans Day (Nov. 11). Saugus is defi nitely a community that is very heavily involved in that, so I’m ASKS | SEE PAGE 19

THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, October 4, 2019 Page 19 ASKS | from page 18 excited to have this project, because people are always looking for ways to help out the veterans. They don’t get a lot of help from the government. This is something we can do locally and reach more people, because these veterans are members of peoples’ families, and this project is in honor of people who served or died to make sure we have the rights that we do. Q: Who are the volunteers that make up your group? A: I’m the president and founder. My mom, Corinne Riley, is the treasurer. Our secretary and social media manager is Cristina Palmieri, and our webmaster is Chris Silva. He’s my boyfriend. He’s also a Saugus High graduate – Class of 2010. Cristina is also Class of 2016. She’s in my grade. And my mom is Class of ’75. Q: And you want to incorporate as a nonprofi t and make this a bigger thing? A: Yes, I’d like to make this a 501(c)(3), and I’d like to see if we can get other towns involved so we can cover Eastern Massachusetts. For now it’s pretty small, but once we get certifi ed as a 501(c)(3), I think we will have the opportunity to go bigger with other communities.

Saugus Blessing Bags distributes them to needy people in various shelters throughout Greater Boston. (Courtesy Photo to The Saugus Advocate) do you estimate that you put into Saugus Blessings Bags? A: Some weeks are busier than others, but on average, I would say maybe 15 to 20 hours a week. Q: What about over the whole time period? A: Since this began? Oh, hundreds and hundreds of hours. I could never keep track. Q: Anything else that you would like to share about Saugus Blessings Bags or about your current project? A: We do work with nine demographics. In the past, we have worked with women trying to escape domestic violence; we’ve helped those people; we’ve helped recovering addicts; we have worked with teens and youth – families with children; we have helped people in the shelters. Our next project – after we have fi nished the Soldiers’ Home – we’ll be working with the Mass. Coalition for the Homeless in getting products to kids in inner city schools who will be able to pick these things up in school so they don’t need to go ask for it. We’re trying to hit as many demographics as possible and try to help out as many people as we can and not focus on just one group. We want to have as big as an outreach as is possible. 1.

Andrew was the loving grandson of Mary Spadafora and the late Louis Spadafora Jr. of Melrose, Nephew of Jim and Beth Spadafora, Lou and Betty Spadafora and Donna and Paul Spadafora. Andrew came from a very large extended family and leaves many aunts, uncles friends that will miss him dearly. He was a kind loving, caring, generous and loyal friend that always put everyone else fi rst. If Andrew was your friend, he was your friend for life. Andrew attended Saugus public schools and was a valued and respected employee at PF Chang in Boston. In lieu of fl owers donations may be made to the Andrew Brown Memorial Fund at gofundme.com.

This is a federally funded program that provides rental assistance to low income families. The success of the Section 8 program depends on owners and property managers that maintain decent, safe, and sanitary rental units. Low-income families in our community depend on home owners like you who are willing to participate in this program.

An Italian born in Aradeo, Lecce, to the late Giuseppe and Amalia Licci, Donata grew up with her 8 loving brothers and sisters. With the support of her sister Lucia, Donata became a professional seamstress. This work brought her to Switzerland, where she met Nicola. Their love crossed countries. In Italy, they wed and frequently visited family. In Switzerland, they fell in love and had their fi rst two children, Thomas and Anna Maria. And in America, they had their third child, David, and raised their young family. Donata and Nicola moved to New York in 1973. When they moved to Massachusetts, they settled fi rst in Everett and later in Malden. Their store, International Fashions in downtown Everett, sold formal attire and provided exceptional tailoring. For 31 years, she worked stitch by stitch to make life beautiful for her husband and children, and then for her grandchildren. Her home on Maple Street glowed with her fierce, gentle, and often delicious affection; there was no leaving her table without a full heart and a full belly .The family is heartbroken after losing Donata to a long struggle with Alzheimer’s and grateful for the gift of her love in their lives.

Additional information can be obtained on the Saugus Public Library Foundation website: www.sauguspubliclibrary.org/Saugus plf. Saugus candidates and cable TV Voters really can’t get enough information on the candidates running in the Saugus town elections on Nov. 5. So, as a public service, we will share a letter from Bryan Nadeau, the executive director of Saugus Community Television, Inc., as he attempts to reach out to all candidates who are running for offi ce: It is election time once again in the Town of Saugus, and Saugus TV off ers a number of diff erent ways for candidates to get information out to Saugram: Saugus TV invites candidates for Saugus Board of Selectmen and Saugus School Committee to schedule a time to come to the studio, located at 1 Pearce Memorial Dr., to record their candidate statements. Each candidate is allowed three minutes of airtime to let viewers know who they are and why they are running for offi ce. This statement is intended to be shot in one take. We allow for on-site review of your take, and will reshoot if necessary. There will be no reshoots available thereafter. There is no cost to the candidate for participating in this taping. Starting October 4th, candidates running for Saugus Board of Selectmen or Saugus School Committee that are interested in recording a statement should contact Saugus TV Executive Director Bryan Nadeau to schedule a date and time. The Deadline to record your statement is October 18th at 5 PM. All candidate statements recorded will then be compiled into a single program that will air on Comcast Channel 8 starting October 25th. This program will air three times a day, at random times in the morning, afternoon, and evening until the election is over on November 5th. Air date and times TBD. Saugus TV program schedules are available at www.saugustv.org. The program will also be available to view on our Vimeo page at www.vimeo.com/saugustelevision. Candidate forums: Saugus TV may tape and cablecast other organization’s forums and/or debates, with notice at least 5 days prior to the event, subject to crew availability. Additional Political Programming: SCTV encourages all Saugus residents, persons associated with a businesses or organizations (whether for profi t or non-profi t), including candidates for any political offi ce, to use the public access channel to communicate their political views. Candidates and other providers of political programs, as well as the programs themselves, are subject to the same policies and procedures as any other user of SCTV, including with respect to the use of a bulletin board. Saugus TV is non-partisan; therefore we do not produce programs endorsing specifi c candidates or ballot questions. We encourage residents, organizations, and businesses to become members of Saugus TV. If a candidate is a member, or becomes a member of Saugus TV, they are entitled to take our courses and learn how to use our video production equipment, and the ability to use it for the purposes of creating a program that will air on Saugus TV. These programs will be shown on Comcast Channel 8 and will air 4 times a week (like any other member production), at random times, and will run up until 24 hours before the start of the November 5th election day. Viewers will be able to fi nd these airings on the Saugus TV Program Schedule as “Candidate Spot(s)” We look forward to working with all of the candidates, and hope that you take advantage of everything Saugus TV has to off er.
