Vogler S augus voters will get one last chance at in-person early voting today (Friday, Nov. 4) before next Tuesday’s state election. The second and final week of Early Voting for the Nov. 8 General Election concludes from 8:15 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in the Community Room of the Saugus Public Library (295 Central St.). Voters should enter via the Taylor Street Entrance. As of Wednesday, Town Clerk Ellen Schena said, 3,942 people had cast their ballots early, compared to 1,807 early voters in the 2018 state election. But four years ago, there were only five days for early voting in the Town Clerk’s Office. In-person early voting accounted for 524 ballots through Wednesday. With nine days of early voting, that averages out to 58 per day and 7.2 people per hour, according to Schena. “Most of the EVs are by mail because of the post cards the State sent out,” Schena told The Saugus Advocate this week. With just under 20,000 Mellany Cruz, a fourth grader at the Belmonte STEAM Academy, mails a letter to her senior citizen pen pal. She is one of 80 students involved in “The Student and Senior Pen Pal Project.” Please see inside for story and more photos. (Saugus Advocate photo by Mark E.

With just under 21,000 voters registered for Tuesday’s election, the town clerk is expecting a similar turnout this year with the ballot featuring the top-elected positions in Massachusetts state government and four ballot questions. There’s not much at stake on the ballot locally, as state Rep. Donald H. Wong (R-Saugus) faces no competition for another two-year term in the Ninth Essex District and state Rep. Jessica Ann Giannino (D-Revere) – whose 16th Suffolk District includes Precincts 3 and 10 in Saugus – will also win an uncontested election. No competition is the same story in two important Essex County races. Incumbent Essex County Sheriff Kevin F. Coppinger faces no Republican candidate on the ballot as he seeks his second sixyear term. Democratic candidate Paul F. Tucker also gets a free pass in his race to fill Essex County District Attorney Jonathan Blodgett’s seat. Blodgett decided not to seek another term after 20 years as the county’s DA. Governor’s Councillor Terrence W. Kennedy, a Democrat, also faces no competition in his reelection bid in the Sixth District. State Sen. Brendan P. Crighton (D-Lynn) faces a little-known Independent candidate from Swampscott, Annalisa Sulustri, in his reelection bid.

THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – FriDAy, NOVEmbEr 4, 2022 ~ The Advocate Asks ~ Page 3 Sue Palomba says she’s found a fulfi lling way to serve Saugus, as a Precinct 1 Town Meeting member Editor’s Note: For this week’s interview, we sat down with Precinct 1 Town Meeting Member Sue Palomba to talk about her involvement in Saugus local government. The fi rst time she ran for public offi ce in the 2017 town elections, she fi nished ninth in a fi eld of nine candidates for the Board of Selectmen. But that didn’t discourage her from getting involved. She says she finds great joy in serving her neighborhood and her town as one of fi ve Town Meeting members representing Precinct 1 and would recommend it as a worthwhile experience for any civic-minded town residents who are considering getting involved in local politics. Sue was born in Avellino, Italy and moved to the Bronx, N.Y. with her family when she was six months old. She is the oldest of four siblings and the daughter of Felice & Emma Ciardiello, who moved their family to Wakefi eld, where Sue grew up. She graduated from Our Lady of Nazareth Academy, Wakefi eld in 1984. She received a Bachelor of Science in Business Management (1988) from Merrimack College. She has been involved in real estate for many years and is the founder and president of Mango Realty, Inc. She and her husband, Americo Palomba have been married for 33 years. He is a master electrician. They have lived in Saugus for 22 years and have two daughters. Rosa Resigno Palomba, a 2009 Saugus High School graduate, graduated from Suffolk University (2013). She is a real estate agent Precinct 1 Town Meeting Member Sue Palomba during a recent interview (Saugus Advocate photo by Mark E. Vogler) and runs the Rockport offi ce of Palomba Realty and Mango. Melisa Palomba is a 2012 Saugus High School graduate who received her bachelor’s degree from UMass-Boston and is currently enrolled in a nurse practitioner program at Northeastern University and will be graduating next May.

Highlights of this week’s interview follow: Q: A lot of people, after losing a selectmen’s race in their fi rst try at politics, might not run for public offi ce again. But you didn’t get discouraged. A: I wanted to get involved and contribute to my community by serving in local government. Q: The next time, you decided to run for a diff erent offi ce.

That’s why I ran for Town Meeting. Q: Please highlight some of your involvement in the community. A: I always liked going to the Saugus Senior Center.

It’s there that I met Bill and Janet Pothier. They thought I was a good leader and asked me to join the Saugus/Everett Elks. I’m still at the Saugus Senior Center and it’s close to my heart. Q: What did you expect when you ran for selectman the first time? A: Honestly, I didn’t know what to expect. I was out there campaigning, holding signs and getting my family and friends involved by helping me. Running for office was a lot of fun. And I wanted to continue to be involved in local government in some form. Town Moderator Steve Doherty encouraged me to get involved. Al DiNardo asked me to serve on the Saugus Cable TV Board. I was honored and then I ran for Town Meeting. Q: After running for Town Meeting and getting elected, what do you think? A: It’s nice for everyone who gets involved in local government. It’s important for people to get involved and get to know their town. It’s what makes the community special. Everyone has got an opinion and different viewpoints. And everyone’s opinion matters.

And being able to help the people in Precinct 1 – my neighborhood – the people I represent. Being a representative of Precinct 1 helps me get more involved in my neighborhood. Precinct 1 has a suburban feel to it, lots of trees and conservation land. We have Prankers Pond and Stackpole Field. I love Stackpole Field. From where I live, I can walk to Town Hall and the Saugus Public Library, and I can walk to Blessed Sacrament Church, where I am a member of the Women’s Guild and Choir member. Q: What has been the most fulfilling part of Town Meeting for you? A: Listening to people and learning about our town’s challenges and then moving forward in a collaborative effort to address those challenges. Q: What’s the toughest part about being a Town Meeting member? A: Making sure you have all of the facts before you make a decision. Voting is an important aspect to the community and town. Voting can make a big difference. But on any issue, there’s always “the other side” to consider. And I don’t want to discourage “the other side.” I want to make sure all sides are heard. One of the pleasures and responsibilities is being able to facilitate public debate on important issues. Q: Are there some veteran Town Meeting members who have been like mentors to you, offering advice and guidance on how to be a better member? A: Yes. There have been a few: Pam Goodwin (Precinct 5), Bill Leuci (Precinct 4) and Ann Devlin (a former Town Meeting member). And, of course, Steve Doherty was the one who encouraged me to get involved. It’s very hard sometimes to get involved, especially when you have a full time career and a family. But the more I got involved, the more I wanted to get involved. This is something I really wanted to do. I was president of the Student Council in my freshman year of High School Q: Do you see yourself serving on Town Meeting 10 years from now? A: Definitely! I love it. Q: Any advice to people considering a run for one of the 50 Town Meeting seats in next year’s town elections? A: If you are going to run to serve on Town Meeting, take it seriously. It’s one of the most important positions in town government. You vote on the town budget and a lot of important issues facing the community. Do your homework and take it seriously. Q: Anything else that you would like to share with our readers? A: My thoughts on why it can be fulfilling if you are considering being a Town Meeting member? Those quaint sayings about town government being a pure democracy are true. There is no higher authority in town.To have the right to participate, you must be a registered voter of the town, and you must attend the Town Meeting.If you do not get involved, how can you justify blaming anybody but yourself. And if you run and get elected, either we agree or disagree on the issues. But we must respect everyone’s opinion.

THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – FriDAy, NOVEmbEr 4, 2022 Page 5 Cross-generational pen pals Fourth-grade students and Saugus senior citizens share a personal connection through a letter-writing project By Mark E. Vogler udah Bida was thrilled to talk about his new friend John, a 64-year-old Saugus resident who’s planning a 3,000-mile bicycle trip to Seattle, Washington. Maya Vrankic seemed just as excited sharing what she knew about Donna, the 77-yearold town resident who went to medical school and who loves walking on the local bike trail. Every one of the 22 students in Brigitte Vaudo’s Fourth Grade Class at the Belmonte STEAM Academy has some interesting stories to share about the senior citizens they have befriended through “The Student and Senior Pen Pal Project” – a special program that pairs up a student with a senior. “It’s really a great project J that brings the town and the school together,” Vaudo said this week during a class where students shared stories about the senior citizens they are corresponding with. “These seniors are such good role models who have a positive influence on the students,” she said. Vaudo is overseeing the program that also involves students from three other Fourth Grade classes. But she credits Cheryl Roberto, an outreach worker at the Saugus Senior Center, who wanted to bring back the pen pal program the center once administered. “I developed the program and increased the number of kids, but it really was Cheryl’s idea to get this project going,” she said. Now in her third year in Saugus Public Schools, Vaudo has spent 24 years as an educator – all of it as a fourth grade teacher. Vaudo loves innovative and interactive student projects. Last spring, she initiated a class project titled “What Makes Our Community Special? The History and Heroes of Saugus.” The Pen Pal Project has grown from 10 to 80 students since its inception in September. Vaudo’s personal goal is to expand the program to all of the 200-plus fourth grade students at the Belmonte STEAM Academy. The seniors and students exchange letters once a month. A special mail box Dropping off their letters to be delivered to their “pen pal” senior citizens were – pictured from left to right – Bailey Trabucco and Isabelle Zepeda. (Saugus Advocate photo by Mark E. Vogler) sets at the front of Vaudo’s classroom for students to place their outgoing letters, which are dropped off at the Senior Center when the seniors’ letters are picked up. The major aim of the program, according to Vaudo, is to help students develop real-life writing skills and build meaningful connections within the community and bridge the generation gap. “We get to learn about new words to include in our writing,” fourth grader Paisleigh Rogers said. Many of Paisleigh’s classmates say they love receiving mail and learning new things about their hometown from people who have lived here for years. Bailey Trabucco, like a few students, said she got creative and included a drawing with her letter. “I learned that the pen pals are very nice people,” Bailey said. “Some of these people probably don’t have any family and need somebody to talk to. We feel happy when we get our letters, so they must feel happy, too,” she said. Vaudo said she agrees that becoming a pen pal with a student can enable a senior to develop a relationship to alleviate loneliness or boredom.

THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – FriDAy, NOVEmbEr 4, 2022 Page 7 “The Old Sachem” Now We Know By Bill Stewart B ill Belichick solved the conundrum this past week when he declared Mac Jones his quarterback. The prior week both Belichick and Jones refused to answer the question of who runs the team off ense. Now the Boston papers are saying everything is hunky-dory, after they beat the New York Jets, who, incidentally, play in New Jersey. The Patriots are still in last place in the Eastern Division of the American Football Conference with a 4 wins and 4 losses record – a game behind both the Jets and Miami, each with 5 and 3 records. The Conference leader remains Buff alo with a 6 and 1 record. This week’s win propels coach Belichick to second place among NFL coaches with his 258th win with one franchise, passing Don Shula of Miami. George Halas of the Bears is the leader with 318 wins for a single franchise. When it comes to total wins during a coach’s career, Shula is the leader with 347 wins, Belichick has 325 and Halas has 324. Now they play the Colts at home on Sunday, Nov. 6, have a bye week Nov. 13, play at home against the Jets on Nov. 20, go to Minnesota and play the Vikings on Nov. 24, then the Bills at Gillette PEN PALS | FROM PAGE 6 who like to stay connected and enjoy interacting with the younger generation can sign up to be a senior pen pal and exchange letters with a student. For more informaon Dec.1. The Colts have a 3-4-1 record, losing the last 2, and the Jets are 5 and 3. The Vikings are 6 and 1 and Buff alo is 5 and 1. The Colts should be a win for the Pats; the Jets are a question mark, and the Vikings and Bills are out of the Patriots’ league. Although the experts say the Pats have now returned to a chance of the playoff s, the schedule appears against the team. As I see it, the best that the Pats can do over this period is 2 wins, which will bring them to 6 and 6 by the fi rst week in December. The Patriots play the Cardinals (3-5) away, the Raiders (25) away, the Bengals (4-3) at home, the Dolphins (5-3) at home and fi nish at the Bills (5-1). Of these last 5 games, I would expect the Pats to win 2 and lose 3, which would mean to my view an overall record of 8 and 9, not a stellar performance. Now let’s look at the last performance. The defense swallowed the Jets at key times during the contest, and a holding penalty against the Jets nullifi ed an 84-yard touchdown interception in the second quarter. The Patriots had a tough time fi nishing off drives and had to muster 5 field goals – not able to work through the red zone of touchdowns, except once: a 5-yard toss that followed a 35 yard dash by Stetion or to sign up as a pen pal, please contact Cheryl Roberto at the Senior Center at croberto@saugus-ma.gov or Brigitte Vaudo at Belmonte STEAM Academy at bvaudo@Saugus.k12. Ma.Us. “The Old Sachem,” Bill Stewart venson. Some stats: The Jets had 51 yards rushing on 15 attempts. The Pats had 127 yards rushing on 8 attempts. The Jets had 336 yards passing and the Patriots, 161. The Pats made 8 fi rst downs rushing, the Jets only 1. The Patriots need a successful defense to carry them forward, and the Pats are a rushing team behind Stevenson. The passing of Jones will not get them far, and probably Zappe would do no better. If I am right about the next 4 games, the Pats are doomed to last or next to last in their division. I hope you had a happy Halloween.

THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – FriDAy, NOVEmbEr 4, 2022 Page 9 NORTH SHORE NAVIGATORS TO HOST 2023 NECBL ALL-STAR GAME L YNN, Mass. -- For the second time in franchise history, the North Shore Navigators will be hosting the New England Collegiate Baseball League (NECBL) All-Star Game at historic Fraser Field during the summer of 2023. The NECBL’s showcase event is set to take place on Sunday, July 23, 2023, marking the fi rst time it will be held in Lynn since 2011. The event will be a highlight of next summer’s activities in Navs Nation. “The Navigators are honored to host the 2023 NECBL All-Star Game,” Navigators President Derek January said. “We look forward to putting on a fi rstclass show for all the baseball fans of New England. The City of Lynn is making some significant upgrades to Fraser Field this off season, and there’s no better way to show off our great facility than to host the All-Star Game. Our staff will be ready for an amazing event!” The All-Star Game annually features some of the top talent the New England League has to off er, with players from all 14 NECBL organizations showcasing their skills in front of scouts from every Major League Baseball (MLB) team. Commissioner Sean McGrath is excited for the NECBL All-Star Game to return to a premier location less than 15 miles from Boston, the largest city in all of New England. “The NECBL All-Star Game is our showcase event where the rosters are fi lled with some of the best college players in the country who are certainly on track to be selected in an upcoming MLB draft,” McGrath said. “This event is attended by every MLB scouting department with some teams sending two or three scouts to evaluate our players. The Navigators organization and City of Lynn are well positioned to host this event by providing a beautiful setting at Fraser Field and where fans from all of our fourteen communities throughout New England will be able to enjoy watching the best-of-thebest this summer.” The event will also showcase the extensive renovations to Fraser Field that are being made this fall in advance of the 2023 baseball season. Fraser will feature a new all-turf playing surface, new lights and an upgraded party deck among other new amenities. The 2022 NECBL All-Star Game was hosted by the Martha’s Vineyard Sharks, in Oak Bluff s, Mass., for the fi rst time ever. Navigators pitcher Jake Gigliotti (Northeastern) and outfi elder Jake McElroy (Holy Cross) played in the game, while fi rst baseman/outfielder Nathan Blasick (West Virginia) participated in the Home Run Derby.

Victims are telling the Better Business Bureau (BBB) Scam Tracker about a loan forgiveness scam where the caller has their Social Security number, graduation date and even federal student aid information. How the scam works: You receive a call or voicemail from someone claiming to represent the new student loan forgiveness program. The scammer insists they can help you secure tens of thousands of dollars in loan forgiveness. According to one recent BBB Scam Tracker report, the con artist promised to erase $60K of the victim’s student loan – an amount well beyond the Biden Administration plan. These callers have a convincing amount of information as well as “all kinds of numbers and fi gures to tell you what you’re going to save,” according to recent BBB Scam Tracker reports. One report said the caller “not only had my email address but also the name of the school I attended and the last 4 digits of my social security number.” Another victim reported that the scammers “somehow knew my FAFSA account info and made me believe they work in conjunction with the loan forgiveness program.” In most versions of this scam, the caller insists you need to pay them an initial fee – typically several hundred dollars spread over a couple of months – followed by smaller monthly payments. Then, when the current pause on the loan forgiveness program ends, your loan will be forgiven. Unfortunately, these con artists have no association with the offi cial student debt relief plan. Anything you pay will go into the scammers’ pockets and will do nothing to help relieve your student loans. How to avoid student loan forgiveness scams: • When in doubt, contact the government agency directly. If you receive a message that seems legitimate, but you aren’t sure, stop communicating with the person who contacted you. Then verify their claims by contacting the government agency they say they represent. For details on the student loan forgiveness program, visit ED.gov or StudentAid.gov. • Never pay fees for a free government program. Government agencies will never ask you to pay a fee to benefi t from a free government program. Don’t let scammers persuade you otherwise. Con artists might say the fee will get you relief faster or will unlock additional benefi ts, but that is all part of the scam. • Think twice about unsolicited calls, emails or text messages. Usually, government agencies won’t reach out to you unless you request it. Out-of-theblue communications are a red fl ag. • Don’t give in to scare tactics. If someone claims you’ll miss out if you don’t act immediately, be wary. This urgency is an alltoo-common tactic scammers use on their victims. Instead of responding, stop communications until you can verify what they say is true. For more information: Get more solid advice by reading “BBB Tip: Student loan forgiveness is here.

Page 10 THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – FriDAy, NOVEmbEr 4, 2022 Rain couldn’t ruin this ribbon cutting Saugus officials join with representatives from four area cities to celebrate the completion of the Northern Strand Community Trail By Laura Eisener, Special to The Saugus Advocate D espite the heavy downpour, a stalwart group celebrated the ribbon cutting Wednesday (Oct. 26) morning on the bike trail between Lincoln Avenue and Central Street. The Northern Strand Community Trail – a project that was 30 years in the making – reached a milestone this year when sections connecting Saugus with four cities (Everett, Lynn, Malden and Revere) were completed, enabling bicyclists and walkers access from inland to the coast. Many people of all ages have been enjoying the bike trail for a wide range of reasons: recreation, exercise, nature watching, and simply as a safe and convenient way to get around town for errands, work, school and appointments. “I would like to thank Governor Baker, Lieutenant Governor Polito, and Secretary Card from the Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs for their support of this important regional initiative,” Saugus Town Manager Scott C. Crabtree told the raincoat-clad gathering on Wednesday. “I would also like to commend the Cities of Revere, Malden, Lynn and Everett, as well as Bike to the Sea, for their partnership and dedication in turning this multi-community effort into a reality,” Crabtree said. “In addition, I would like to thank all of the town’s volunteers and officials who contributed their ideas and suggestions, which strengthened the community vision for this important recreational staple.” The nonprofit Bike to the Sea has been working with town officials and many volunteers to make this connecting path a reality. Among those celebrating the project’s completion with Town Manager Crabtree were the mayors of Everett, Lynn, Malden and Revere – top area elected officials who are connected to the bike trail project. Paving that began in 2020 now allows people to bicycle on paved paths from Everett to Lynn, mostly along the original Saugus Branch Railroad right of way. There are signposts showing mileage, informational signs and crossing lights at many grade crossings as well as benches and bridges to make using the trail comfortable and pleasant. Saugus Town Manager Scott Crabtree addressed the crowd at the Northern Strand Community Trail ribbon cutting on Oct. 26 while Board of Selectman Vice Chair Debra Panetta looked on. (Courtesy photo by Laura Eisener to The Saugus Advocate) The trail – spearheaded by Bike to the Sea, Inc. in 1993 – is built in a continuous 7.5-mile stretch through Everett, Malden, Revere and Saugus. It also includes Lynn. A $15.5 million project The Baker-Polito Administration celebrated the completion of more than 10 miles of the Northern Strand Community Trail, which is a shared use path that traverses parts of the Cities of Everett, Lynn, Malden and Revere and the Town of Saugus along the rail bed of the former Saugus Branch Railroad. The $15.5 million project by the Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs (EEA) was completed utilizing funding from the Gateway City Parks Program. “Projects like the Northern Strand Trail serve as critical assets that link communities and residents across the Commonwealth together,” Governor Charlie Baker said in a statement issued by his office on Wednesday (Oct. 26). “Through the MassTrails team, our Administration has been proud to collaborate across state government and with municipal partners and trail advocacy groups to advance these projects that bring numerous environmental, recreational and transportation benefits to communities in Massachusetts.” “We were pleased to fund A dense cluster of umbrellas was gathered on the Northern Strand Community Trail for the ribbon cutting on Wednesday morning. (Courtesy photo by Laura Eisener to The Saugus Advocate) the Northern Strand Trail, and to partner with Everett, Lynn, Malden, Revere and Saugus to advance this critical project,” Lieutenant Governor Karyn Polito said in a statement also issued by the Governor’s Office on Wednesday. “The Northern Strand Trail will provide benefits not only to the residents and businesses along the trail, but also to visitors and those living in the surrounding region.” The trail corridor connects neighborhoods, links residents to business districts, provides access to regional assets, such as the Lynn Shore and Nahant Beach Reservations of the Department of Conservation & Recreation (DCR), serves as a critical component of the East Coast Greenway and improves the quality of life for the region’s residents. Helping to make the region “green” The trail also has transportation and greenhouse gas emissions benefits. Provision of a practical, safe route of relatively short distance between major cities helps to encourage walking and biking as an alternative to driving, thus reducing emissions and helping the Commonwealth comply with the Global Warming Solutions Act. “Safe and fun access to the outdoors is a priority of the Baker-Polito Administration, and I am pleased that this project provides residents with a great opportunity to get some exercise and enjoy the Commonwealth’s natural resources,” state Energy and Environmental Affairs Secretary Beth Card said. “Significantly, rail trails like the Where the rail-trail runs: Here’s a map created by the Governor’s Office showing the route of the Northern Strand Community Trail. (Courtesy graphic to The Saugus Advocate) Northern Strand Trail also provide commuters with the option to leave their cars behind, which reduces the release of harmful carbon emissions and assists in the Commonwealth’s efforts to achieve Net Zero in 2050.” The construction of the Northern Strand was supported by the work of the Interagency MassTrails Team, which is composed of staff from EEA, the Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) and DCR. The purpose of the team is to help develop a unified vision for a trails network and translate that into strategic investments, policy innovations to facilitate development of trails, and partnerships with municipalities and other organizations. The Northern Strand trail project is a direct result of the group’s “one team, one plan, one vision” approach to advance multi-use trails across the Commonwealth. “Shared use paths give people a safe, comfortable, and convenient option to walk and bike for everyday trips without relying on a car to get to destinations,” Transportation Secretary and CEO Jamey Tesler said. “The benefits are countless when it comes to active travel for wellbeing, public health, reducing pollution, and supporting local businesses. Whether people are commuting to work, going shopping, or just out for fun, more than 100,000 people of four gateway cities now are within ½ mile of the Northern Strand,” Tesler said. Following work conducted by many partners, including the longtime advocacy of Bike to the Sea, trail segments were in various stages when EEA took on the project. EEA’s partners on the project included the five communities, with Revere acting as the contracting entity during the construction phase. The project enhanced an already paved trail in some communities, such as upgrading road crossings to make them better and safer locations. In RIBBON CUTTING | SEE PAGE 13

THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – FriDAy, NOVEmbEr 4, 2022 Page 11 Better Business Bureau Tip: political scams expected to increase as midterm elections near n election’s approach always seems to turn up the emotional heat across the nation, and the United States 2022 midterm elections are no exception. The voices arguing for and against hot-button issues are loud and persistent. And when emotions run high, bad actors look for ways to use peoples’ passion to trick them. Scammers prey on emoA tion. The more people care, the more vulnerable they can be. People participate in polls and surveys because they want to be heard, and scammers can use that desire to build trust. People donate because they want their candidate to win and to improve their country or community, and scammers are more than happy to take advantage of a competitive spirit or big heart. Elections are polarizing – there are winners and losers, fans and haters. It’s easy to get swept up in the moment and take risks you might otherwise avoid. At the Better Business Bureau (BBB), we can’t tell you how to vote, but we can tell you how to spot common cybersecurity threats so you don’t become a victim of scams. Check your email: It can seem like once a candidate or political party gets your email address, you hear from them every time you check your inbox. They need your help; they want to know your point of view through a poll or survey; they urge you to support their efforts and impact the future by donating, participating or sharing information. Candidates are persistent because people want to get involved, to be in the know and to be a part of the process, so campaign email helps them move toward their goals. Scammers mimic campaign emails not to get your vote but to compromise your online safety. You might receive a poll, survey or donation request that appeals to your passion, beliefs and desire to take action – that’s really an attempt to steal your personal information. What looks like a legitimate donation request might actually be an attempt to gain access to your bank account. Before you donate or give personal information, research the organization that reached out, and be wary of people who try to rush you to make a decision. Be especially careful of emails with links. Phishing emails might include a link that takes users to a spoofed version of a candidate’s website or installs malware on your device. Use BBB’s tips for spotting an email scam to be sure it’s real. If you want to receive more information or visit a site, it’s better to type the official website address into your browser. You can also hover your mouse over hyperlinks and compare the web address that pops up with the legitimate web address. When fraudsters give you a ring: Actual campaign supporters call people to conduct surveys or solicit donations. Scammers often do the same thing. Criminals pretending to be affiliated with your party or candidate might try to scam you over the phone by asking you to: • Answer survey questions – then ask for your personal information like your social security number or birthdate. Sometimes they also offer a prize or gift card in exchange for your time. They might ask you to give a credit card number to cover shipping. Learn how to identify a fake survey. • Donate funds – and if you give them your account information, they’ve got you. Learn about donating wisely to a crowdfunding campaign. • Register to vote – fraudsters might say you’re not registered and offer to help you with the process over the phone, then steal personally identifying information. It’s common for actual candidates to use prerecorded messages to reach out to the public. Scammers sometimes use voice cloning to make it sound like an authentic message from a candidate and persuade people to donate or share info. After hearing the message, people are redirected or transferred to someone ready to take down their information and use it for nefarious activities. Trickery by smishing: Smishing is similar to email scamming, only messages are sent via text. Citizens might receive a message that looks like it came from a trusted source, inviting them to participate in a poll or donate. Tricksters might be out to get your passwords, account numbers, social security number or other data. Read more about smishing and how to identify a fake text message. Another type of scam happens when con artists send a text about a fake problem. For example, an individual might get a text that looks like it came from their bank, asking if they really donated to a candidate, organization or party with a prompt to reply “yes” or “no.” If the person replies no, the scammer calls them and asks for their account log-in, numbers or password to investigate or dispute the transaction. The person feels fear and an urgent need to act, so they might not think twice about giving up sensitive information. There’s also the text-yourvote scam. Con artists send text messages urging people to text their vote rather than voting in person or by mail. When voters believe them, they don’t show up to actually vote, and their chance to participate in elections is lost. Midterm election cybersecurity tips: • See prizes as a red flag. Legitimate pollsters don’t usually offer a prize for completing a survey. • Know what pollsters don’t need. They might ask for demographic information or what party you most align with, but they don’t need personal information like birth dates, social security numbers or financial information. No state offers voter registration by phone. • Don’t answer unknown numbers. Con artists can’t trick you if they can’t get in touch. • Listen to your gut. If something seems off, protect yourself. If in doubt, check with your local election office. • Don’t provide information in response to an unsolicited message. The entities that need your account and personal information already have them. • Do report suspicious activities to BBB’s Scam Tracker (https://www.bbb.org/ scamtracker/reportscam).

Latest Seasonally Unadjusted Unemployment and Job Estimates for Local Labor Markets in Massachusetts B OSTON, MA — October 25, 2022 — Local unemployment rates increased in two labor market areas, decreased in twenty-one areas and remained unchanged in one area in the state during the month of September compared to August, the Executive Office of Labor and Workforce Development reported. Compared to September 2021, the rates were down in twenty-four labor market areas. Of the fifteen areas for which estimates are published, six NECTA areas gained jobs compared to the previous month. The largest percentage increases occurred in the Springfield MA-CT (+1.2%), Lowell-Billerica-Chelmsford MA-NH (+0.9%), and Leominster-Gardner (+0.8%) areas. From September 2021 to September 2022, fourteen areas gained jobs with the largest percentage increases seen in the Boston-Cambridge-Newton (+5.3%), Lowell-Billerica-Chelmsford MANH (+5.2%), and Framingham (+4.1%) areas. The statewide seasonally adjusted preliminary jobs estimate showed an increase of 13,800 jobs in September, and an over-the-year gain of 151,700 jobs. In order to compare the statewide rate to local unemployment rates, the Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates the statewide unadjusted unemployment rate for September 2022 was 3.1 percent, down four-tenths of a percentage point from the revised August estimate and two-tenths of a percentage point below the nation’s unadjusted unemployment rate of 3.3 percent. Last week, the Executive Office of Labor and Workforce Development reported the statewide seasonally adjusted unemployment rate in the month of September 2022 was 3.4 percent, down twotenths of a percentage point from the revised August 2022 estimate of 3.6 percent. The U.S. Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics reported the nation’s seasonally adjusted unemployment rate for September 2022 was 3.5 percent. The unadjusted unemployment rates and job estimates for the labor market areas reflect seasonal fluctuations and therefore may show different levels and trends than the statewide seasonally adjusted estimates. The estimates for labor force, unemployment rates, and jobs for Massachusetts are based on different statistical methodology specified by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. NOTES: The preliminary October 2022 and the revised September 2022 unemployment rates, labor force data and jobs estimates for Massachusetts will be released on Friday, November 18, 2022; local unemployment statistics will be released on Tuesday, November 22, 2022.

Page 12 THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – FriDAy, NOVEmbEr 4, 2022 Federal probe cracks North Shore drug ring Three Saugus residents are among 23 individuals charged with trafficking counterfeit prescription pills (Editor’s Note: The following story is based on a press release issued this week by the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Boston.) F ederal officials say a Saugus man and his Revere brother were the leaders of a North Shore-based drug trafficking organization (DTO) that allegedly manufactured and distributed tens of thousands of counterfeit prescription pills containing narcotics. Lawrence Michael Nagle, a/k/a “Mikey,” 32, of Saugus, and his brother, Christopher Nagle, a/k/a “Cuda,” 28, of Revere, had been identified as far back as 2018 as leaders of a DTO distributing various controlled substances throughout the North Shore region of Massachusetts, according to documents filed by federal investigators. Federal agents alleged that the Nagle DTO distributed significant quantities of various controlled substances: Adderall (both pharmaceutical-grade pills and counterfeit pills containing methamphetamine), methamphetamine, Xanax, Oxycodone (both pharmaceutical-grade and counterfeit pills containing fentanyl), cocaine and marijuana, among others. The Nagle brothers were among 23 members of the DTO charged this week. Also charged with conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute and to distribute controlled substances were Justin Westmoreland, 24, of Saugus, and Anna Bryson, 59, of Saugus. “Since taking office 10 months ago, we have worked tirelessly in collaboration with our federal, state and local law enforcement partners to combat the deadly drug and opioid crisis poisoning our Commonwealth,” United States Attorney Rachael S. Rollins said. “Last year we lost over 2000 lives. Loved ones taken, stolen from us. And to be clear – counterfeit prescription pills being sold on the street are part of the problem. Swallowing a deadly drug can have the same fatal outcome as injecting one. These charges are an important step in slowing and ending the near constant stream of illegal drugs flowing into our communities,” Rollins said. “We allege the defendants participated in a large-scale drug ring that was prepared to distribute tens of thousands of counterfeit Adderall pills containing methamphetamine in addition to the counterfeit Adderall pills and counterfeit oxycodone pills containing fentanyl that they were actually distributing into neighborhoods on the North Shore,” she said. “Disguised to look like your average prescriptions from the pharmacy, these pills contained deadly narcotics – including fentanyl, which is 100 times more potent than morphine, and methamphetamine, which also has been responsible for countless overdose deaths. As a result of this investigation, North Shore residents are safer now with more than 74,000 potentially deadly pills removed from their streets.” The Nagle DTO allegedly distributed controlled substances to a small network of individuals who would then redistribute the drugs to other traffickers, including separate, but interconnected, organizations. These smaller organizations were allegedly headed by Nelson Mora, a/k/a “Nellie,” 29, of Lynn; Javier Bello, a/k/a “Javi,” 27, of Beverly; and Anthony Bryson, 33, of Billerica. Federal investigators alleged that Mora, Bello and Bryson obtained their drug supply from other sources at times and that Mora and Bryson had access to pill press machines used to create counterfeit pills. The investigation resulted in numerous seizures of controlled substances, including the following: over 74,000 counterfeit Adderall pills containing methamphetamine, weighing more than 24 kilograms; 591 counterfeit Adderall pills containing methamphetamine; 1,000 counterfeit Oxycodone pills containing fentanyl; and 101 counterfeit Oxycodone pills containing fentanyl. During the execution of federal search warrants this week, investigators seized a pill press hidden under a sheet in a basement laundry room, plastic bags containing approximately three to four kilograms of suspected powdered fentanyl in various colors, various quantities of suspected counterfeit Adderall pills containing methamphetamine and various quantities of suspected counterfeit oxycodone containing fentanyl. Many of the suspected counterfeit pills were packaged for sale. A firearm and additional suspected counterfeit pills containing controlled substances were also seized from inside a furniture hide. “Massachusetts is in the midst of a devastating opioid crisis as deaths from deadly fake pills soar,” said Brian D. Boyle, Special Agent in Charge of the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), Boston Field Division. “The DEA will continue to use every resource available to identify those who are contributing to the crisis. We will continue to work with our law enforcement partners to put other callous distributors behind bars,” Boyle said. Colonel Christopher Mason, Superintendent of the Massachusetts State Police, commended the DEA, our Commonwealth Interstate Narcotics Trafficking Reduction and Enforcement task force, and the multiple partner agencies “for their superb work interdicting this drug organization.” “The practice of disguising fentanyl and other dangerous drugs as prescription medication is especially nefarious for the dangers it poses to unsuspecting users and the new addictions it fuels,” Col. Mason said. “The neighborhoods of the North Shore are safer today for their efforts,” he said. Conviction on the charge of conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute and to distribute controlled substances provides for a sentence of up to 20 years in federal prison, at least three years of supervised release and fines of up to $1 million. Sentences are imposed by a federal district court judge based upon the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and statutes which govern the determination of a sentence in a criminal case.

THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – FriDAy, NOVEmbEr 4, 2022 Page 13 KNOWLEDGE | FROM PAGE 10 other communities where the rails were still in place the project involved all aspects of trail design, permitting and construction. Additionally, the trail was designed by the team of Brown, Richardson, and Rowe, landscape architects, and Stantec Consulting engineers, who also administered project construction, and built by the R. Zoppo Corporation. “After nearly 30 years of tireless advocacy, Bike to the Sea is thrilled to celebrate the offi cial ribbon cutting for the Northern Strand Trail,” said Jonah Chiarenza, Executive Director of Bike to the Sea. “We thank the Commonwealth of Massachusetts for this historic investment in recreation and active transportation,” Chiarenza said. What the mayors say about the bike trail Design work for the balance of the Northern Strand Extension in Lynn, which will travel along South Common Street, Market Street and the Carroll Parkway before reaching Nahant Beach, is at the 75 percent stage. Funding for construction is programmed on MassDOT’s Transportation Improvement Program for FY24, which means that work should begin in the fall of 2023 and end in the summer of 2025. On the southern end of the Northern Strand, the City of Everett has been building the segment from West Street to the Mystic River. In addition, DCR is completing the design and permitting of the Mystic River Bicycle and Pedestrian Bridge. Construction funding has been set aside for bridge work to begin in the summer of 2023, with construction expected to take about two years. The completed project will result in a transportation and recreation corridor of about 11.5 miles from the Somerville side of the Mystic River at Assembly Row to the beach at the Nahant causeway. “We’re thrilled to see the expansion of the Northern Strand and to have Lynn added to the shared use path,” Lynn Mayor Jared Nicholson said. “This initiative will contribute to our goals of increasing connectivity and accessibility to transportation and open, green space throughout the City and beyond,” he said. Everett Mayor Carlo DeMaria called the completion of the Northern Strand Trail “a transformative multimodal transportation investment for the communities north of Boston that have Girls just wanna’ have fun! been historically underserved by our transportation network.” “I applaud this achievement by the Baker administration, welcoming the Cities of Revere, Saugus and Lynn into the trail network, and look forward to the full completion of the path when the Mystic River bridge opens in the coming years,” DeMaria said. Malden Mayor Gary Christenson called the project a precedent-setting development for his community. “There isn’t anything that has transformed our city like the Northern Strand Community Trail has done,” Mayor Christenson said. “From providing a safe space to bike, run, and walk to creating a place for public art to being a place for families to come together, the trail has achieved all that we had hoped for and it has also proven that hard work is still the key to success,” Christenson said. “Thank you to Bike to the Sea for their 20 years of dedication to making this invaluable project a reality,” he said. Revere Mayor Brian Arrigo called the Northern Strand Community Trail “a shining example of regional collaboration and the commitment of the Commonwealth to enhance the quality of life for the residents of our urban communities.” “Thanks to the hard work of our local and state partners, the residents of Revere will enjoy this trail for generations to come and have enhanced access to open space and outdoor recreation,” Mayor Arrigo said. State Senator Brendan Crighton (D-Lynn) hailed the trail project as a great connector of all the communities in the region. “The Northern Strand Trail continues to bring people together both within and across communities,” Crighton said. “We are thankful for this project, which is a major investment in our region’s public health, economy, and emissions reduction eff orts.” Law Offices of Terrence W.

Page 14 THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – FriDAy, NOVEmbEr 4, 2022 Football Sachems hope to bag elusive win against Reggies T By Greg Phipps hough the Saugus High School football team remains without a victory in 2022, the Sachems have made some progress in certain respects. One of those signs of improvement has been the ability of the team to put points on the board in recent games. Over the last three contests where the Sachems have given up a lot of points (131), they have also managed to score a bit, averaging just over 17 points a game during that span. After losing big at Rockland two weeks ago, Saugus traveled to play the Winthrop Vikings last Thursday evening and ended up suffering a 35-18 defeat. The loss dropped Saugus to 0-8 on the season and left the Sachems still in search of their first win since the 2020 campaign. As has been the case in many games this year, Saugus fell behind early. The Vikings blew out to a 14-0 lead in the first quarter and went into the half ahead by a 21-6 count. The score stayed that way through the third period. That’s when each team tallied two touchdowns each in the final quarter to account for the final margin. Head coach Steve Cummings and his young and undermanned Saugus team will have what appears to be a good opportunity to earn a victory this Friday night at Christie Serino Jr. Stadium. The Sachems take on the Greater Lawrence Tech Reggies in a non-playoff matchup. The 2-6 Reggies were winless themselves through their first six games but enter this week’s tilt having won two straight. The contest is a scheduled 6:30 p.m. kickoff. The Sachems would like to avenge last season’s hear tbreaking defeat to Lawrence. In that game, the Reggies scored on the final play of the game and executed a successful twopoint conversion to escape with a dramatic 15-14 triumph. Saugus sophomore Danny Shea has been a contributor on both sides of the ball so far this season. Saugus captain Tommy DeSimone is hoping to help his team earn a long-awaited victory against Greater Lawrence this Friday night at Christie Serino Jr. Stadium. (Advocate photos by Greg Phipps) Saugus girls earn playoff at home; boys on hot streak entering tourney By Greg Phipps T his has been perhaps one of the strongest seasons ever for Saugus High School soccer. Both the girls’ and boys’ squads earned playoff berths, and each team appears to have the chance to make some noise in their respective tournaments. The Sachem girls closed out the regular season last Friday by blanking Somerville, 4-0. The win halted a modest two-game losing streak and got Saugus back on the winning track entering the postseason. Owners of a 12-5-1 regular-season record, the Sachem girls were awarded the 22nd seed in Div. 3 and will host a preliminary round contest Friday afternoon at Christie Serino Jr. Stadium (scheduled 4 p.m. start). The opponent wi l l be Southeastern Regional Vocational Tech, the 43rd and final seed in the tourney. Despite being the last seeded squad, Southeastern finished with a pretty solid 8-5-3 regular-season record and will no doubt provide a serious challenge for the Sachems.

Next week is a very important and patriotic one – for Saugus, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and the rest of our nation. On Tuesday (Nov. 4) Saugus residents and Americans across the country will go to the polls to vote in local, state and Congressional elections. While the local state legislative race lacks a competitive choice – just state Rep. Donald Wong (R-Saugus) – local voters will be electing a new governor and new attorney general. And history could be made in both races. Attorney General Maura Healey could become Massachusetts’ first elected woman governor. Healey is one of two candidates in next week’s election who could become the first two openly lesbian governors in the country. Tina Kotek, a Democrat who is running in Oregon, could also achieve that distinction. Meanwhile, Democrat Andrea Campbell could become the first black woman elected as attorney general in Massachusetts. The second big day of next week is Veterans Day, which will be celebrated on Friday (Nov. 11). Veterans Day ceremonies get underway at 11 a.m. at Veterans Park (245 Winter St.). The Saugus Veterans Council will be in charge of the ceremonies honoring veterans past and present for their military service to the country. Unlike Memorial Day – which honors those who sacrificed their lives in the line of duty – this national holiday celebrates all veterans. Veteran’s Day Field of Flags Preparations for the Veteran’s Day Field of Flags to be placed on the lawn of the Saugus Town Hall to honor and remember all veterans on Nov. 11, 2022, is underway. The Parson Roby Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution is sponsoring this event to honor all veterans, living or deceased, including those currently serving. American flags, sponsored through the Parson Roby Chapter DAR at a cost of $5 each, will be placed on the Saugus Town Hall lawn prior to Nov. 11 and will wave throughout the week until Nov. 11. Last year was the first year of Parson Roby Chapter DAR sponsoring the Field of Flags and it was a huge success. There were more than 100 flags sponsored with veterans’ names waving in the wind, and we hope for many more veterans to be sponsored this year. Forum to discuss future of closed school buildings Town Manager Scott C. Crabtree and the Board of Selectmen invite town residents to attend a public forum to discuss and provide input for potential future uses of closed school buildings and property. The public forum will be held on Nov. 14 at 6 p.m. in the upstairs auditorium at the Saugus Town Hall (298 Central St., Saugus). “We hope residents will join us on Monday, November 14th to share and provide input on the use of these important community facilities and properties,” Town Manager Crabtree said in a press release issued this week. “I t ’s impor tant that we receive feedback from many stakeholders in order to create the best possible plan moving forward with input from Town officials and the community,” he said. School Committee members voted earlier this year to turn the vacant Douglas Waybright Elementary School, the Lynnhurst Elementary School and the Oaklandvale Elementary School to the Town of Saugus. The Roby School Administration Building was turned over to the town late last year. There are four buildings and adjoining land that provide a number of potential options for future use. This is an opportunity for town residents and representatives of various organizations to offer recommendations and ideas to town officials on how the properties should be used. Stay tuned. Town-wide Fall Street Sweeping underway Town Manager Scott C. Crabtree and the Department of Public Works are pleased to announce that the Town’s Annual Fall Street Sweeping Program began on Tuesday, Oct.11. Sweepers began in the area of North Saugus (Precincts 5 and 7) and worked their way across Town, working from 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. The town asks that residents keep vehicles off the street when sweepers are in the area. Locals may assist the Department of Public Works by sweeping their driveways or sidewalks into the gutter area prior to the program’s start. But they should not sweep driveways and/or sidewalks once the sweepers have swept. Residents should keep in mind that street sweepers are unable to collect stones, branches, leaves or other foreign objects. In addition, residents are asked to be mindful that sweepers cannot pick up large piles of sand. Please contact the Department of Public Works at 781231-4143 with any questions. “Remnants of the railroad in Saugus” set for Nov. 9 The Saugus Historical Society’s next meeting will be on Nov. 9 and will be about remnants of the railroad in Saugus and surrounding areas, including views of historic depots and other buildings, tracks and local railroad memorabilia. Railroad buffs Paul Kenworthy, Jack Klecker, Laura Eisener and possibly others will share their interest in trains. Steve Carlson has shared some of his research on the “Saugus Branch” railroad which served our community for 100 years and which inspired Elliott Paul’s 1912 book “Linden on the Saugus Branch,” an account of his “boyhood in a New England Town.” The event takes place at 7 p.m. at 30 Main St. in Saugus, the home of the Saugus Historical Society and the Saugus Cable TV station. New town residents and any railroad enthusiasts are especially welcome this month, and the meeting is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served. For more information contact Saugus Historical Society President Laura Eisener at 781-231-5988. A “Shout Out” to a hero fighter We received no nominations this week from readers requesting public recognition of Saugus folks for good deeds, acts of kindness or extraordinary accomplishments. In this instance, a gigantic “Shout Out” is in order for Saugus native and 1998 Saugus High School graduate Rob Hoffman – who was recently honored for his heroics as a Groveland firefighter.

Firefighter Hoffman received multiple commendations, including: A Certificate of Excellence, signed by Groveland Fire Chief Robert Valentine and Groveland Town Administrator Rebecca Oldham “In recognition for performance of duty on June 24, 2022 while working with Police rescuing two victims from the fire at 2 Manor Drive.” A Certificate of Commendation from the Groveland Board of Selectmen for “working with Groveland Police to rescue two residents trapped in a burning apartment building.” Groveland selectmen commended Hoffman for his “professionalism, knowledge, heroism and willingness to assist people in distress.” A legislative citation from the Massachusetts House of Representatives, signed by House Speaker Ronald Mariano in recognition of Hoffman’s “quick and heroic actions in protecting and saving the residents of Manor Drive, as well as the rest of the citizens in Groveland.” Want to “Shout Out” a fellow Saugonian?

Page 16 THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – FriDAy, NOVEmbEr 4, 2022 Saugus Gardens in the Fall Here’s what’s blooming in town this week to make your walks more enjoyable By Laura Eisener T here is still plenty of fall foliage color even though we are now seeing a lot of leaves coming down. Many residents are employing rakes, brooms and leaf blowers this week to clear their lawns from all the leaves. At the Veterans’ Park, a DPW worker power washed the monument and cleared the bricks so that the names are readable in preparation for next Friday’s Veterans Day ceremony. There will be some additional new bricks installed before the event as well. Some low-lying areas in town have already seen a light frost or two, while other parts of town at slightly higher elevations have yet to see cold enough air settling in. Many areas still have tropical annual flowers blooming, and some of our later blooming perennials, like mums and some of their relatives, can continue flowering through several light frosts. Just a few degrees of difference in temperature can mean the difference between the end of the growing season and a few more weeks. On Tuesday, November 8, a total lunar eclipse will occur, but you have to be up early to see it. In Greater Boston we will be able to see it just before dawn, but it will disappear below the horizon before the event ends. It may still be worth rising early for it, though, since this will be the final visible total lunar eclipse until March 13, 2025. The flower of the month of November is generally agreed to be Chrysanthemum, and there are certainly many of them blooming around town. While they don’t all survive winter in our climate, many are actually hardier than they are given Vase of Montauk daisy and ‘Sheffield Pink’ mums: These are a few of the seasonal flowers still blooming in our gardens. (Courtesy photo to The Saugus Advocate by Laura Eisener) credit for. There are also many relatives of mums that continue into late fall. ‘Sheffield Pink’ mums are very hardy varieties requiring little care for reliable very late season bloom. They have a daisy-like head with pale pink ray florets and, like many other mums, are good choices for long-lasting cut flowers. While they were once grouped in the same genus as the florists’ chrysanthemums we see everywhere, some botanists now have separated them into a different group and renamed them (Dendranthemum ‘Sheffield Pink’); they are still considered members of the same large aster or composite family (Asteraceae) along with any other plants that have a daisy-like head of flowers. Montauk daisy (Nipponanthemum nipponicum) has flower heads very similar to the popular Shasta daisy (Leucanthemum superbum), but the plant structure and foliage are quite different. The somewhat woody stems Swans on Hawkes Pond enjoy the warm temperatures as the water reflects late autumn color from the shore. (Courtesy photo to The Saugus Advocate by Laura Eisener) make the plant look like a small shrub, and while it is among the last plants in the garden to bloom in the fall it is one of the earliest to leaf out in spring. While the species originated in Japan, it was so widely planted on Long Island that its common name in this country refers to the outermost tip of that island, Montauk Point. Chocolate boneset or false snakeroot (Eupatorium rugosum ‘Chocolate,’ also known as Eutrochium rugosum ‘Chocolate’ or Ageratina altissima ‘Chocolate’) is one of the latest native perennials to bloom and will continue through a few light frosts. When seen in the wild, the species usually has dark green foliage, but this ornamental variety has dark purplish brown leaves and stems for much of the growing season. Small white flower heads bloom in October and often into November. As Dee LeMay notes, “By the time the flowers open, some of the The old stone pump house on Hawkes Pond near Walnut Street is seen against the backdrop of fall foliage across Route 1 in North Saugus. (Courtesy photo to The Saugus Advocate by Laura Eisener) dark foliage color has changed to green, but the stems are still a deep purple-brown.” It is certainly a plant that holds a lot of interest through the growing season and gives us something to look forward to in late fall. Some is blooming next to the Town Hall steps as well as in Dee’s garden and mine and a few other gardens around town. Although its flower heads look somewhat different than a daisy configuration, this plant is still part of the composite family (Asteraceae) despite many disagreements over its genus and species names. The mums, Montauk daisies and boneset are all appreciated by the bumblebees and other pollinators still flying around in November. Editor’s Note: Laura Eisener is a landscape design consultant who helps homeowners with landscape design, plant selection and placement of trees and shrubs, as well as perennials. She is a member of the Saugus Garden Club and offered to Montauk daisy and ‘Chocolate’ snakeroot are among the very late bloomers in the garden.

A most polarizing vote Ar ticle 7 of last week’s Special Town Meeting was a non-binding resolution which proved to be controversial by the way it was handled by the 50-member body. Instead of it being debated extensively and then voted up or down, a majority of Town Meeting members voted to end the debate by calling the question and then voting 25-12 with 12 abstensions to postpone Article 7 indefinitely. Precinct 10 Town Meeting Member Peter Manoogian, who along with fellow Precinct 10 Members Martin Costello, Darren Ring and Carla Scuzzarella initiated the resolution, called it anti-Democratic measure that went against the very spirit and nature of Town Meeting. The main argument raised by those who supported the measure’s indefinite postponement was the concern that passage of the measure might jeopardize ongoing negotiations between the town and WIN Waste Innovations on a HCA (Host Community Agreement). Voting in support of the motion to indefinitely postpone Article 7 were: Anthony Arone, Mark J. Bell and Chris Jones of Precinct 1; Robert J. Camuso, Sr., Christopher P. Riley, Peter A. Rossetti, Jr., and Joseph John Vecchione IV of Precinct 2; Daniel Schena of Precinct 3; Glen R. Davis and Robert C. Northrup of Precinct 4; William S. Brown and Kevin D. Currie of Precinct 6; William E. Cross, III, Jason A. Khan, William Kramich, Jr., Anthony J. Lopresti and Thomas E. Traverse of Precinct 8; Judith Worthley, Robert M. Strasnick and Daniel Kelly of Precinct 9; and Peter Delios of Precinct 10. Voting against the motion were: Susan Dunn and Sue Palomba of Precinct 1; Christine M. Moreschi of Precinct 2; Rick A. Smith of Precinct 3; William Leuci and Maureen Whitcomb of Precinct 4; Pamela J. Goodwin, Ronald M. Wallace and Brenton H.

To sponsor your wreath(s) at $15 each or to volunteer to help place wreaths on December 17th, please visit www. wreathsacrossamerica.org/ MA0136P. There will be a brief ceremony at noon to honor all branches of the military followed by laying wreaths on our fallen heroes. Invite your friends and family to join us in honoring our servicemen and women. The cut-off date to order is Nov. 28th. 2021 was our fi rst year sponsoring this event, which had over 360 wreaths sponsored. The community really stepped up and we are grateful for all the support we received. However, there are more than 1500 veterans’ graves in Riverside and we are hoping that between the community and businesses there will be enough sponsored wreaths to cover all those graves this year. The Daughters of the American Revolution’s mission is to preserve American history and secure America’s future through education and promoting patriotism.
