SAUGUS Vol. 24, No. 45 -FREETh e Advocate – A household word in Saugus! DOCATE D E C www.advocatenews.net Town Election 2021 Board of Selectmen candidates had already spent more than $15,000 going into the fi nal eight days of their campaigns THE MOST EXPENSIVE CAMPAIGN: Saugus Board of Selectmen Vice-Chair Debra Panetta raised $6,125 and spent $5,635.86 – the most campaign money among 20 candidates who ran town-wide for public offi ce in the town’s Nov. 2 town election. (Courtesy photo to the Saugus Advocate) By Mark E. Vogler V eteran Selectman Debra C. Panetta, like most of her opponents in the Nov. 2 town election, worked hard to get elected. The 2,121 votes she received were second best among the 10 candidates who ran for the fi ve seats on the board. But Panetta also waged the most expensive campaign for the voluntary, two-year term she will serve as the new Board of Selectmen vice-chair. With eight days left before the election, she had already spent $5,635.86 on post cards to voters, postage, newspaper ads and political signs, according to the campaign fi nance report she fi led with the Saugus Town Clerk’s Offi ce. Two years ago, Panetta spent $4,752.76 on her campaign. She has already surpassed that amount and is expected to spend substantially more on this year’s race. Two more reports are due: one for a month after the election; another for the year’s end. Overall, the 10 selectman candidates spent an aggregate of $15,447.36 with about a week left in the respective campaigns, according to a review of the Campaign Finance Reports documents posted on the Town of Saugus website (https://www.saugus-ma.gov/ town-clerk/pages/campaign-fi - nance-reports). The candidates raised $7,911.50 collectively. And their outstanding liabilities totaled $30,516.07. Meanwhile, the seven candidates vying for the five School Committee seats raised $1,113.36 and spent $1,944.96, substantially less, on their respective town-wide political Published Every Friday 781-233-4446 Friday, November 12, 2021 Honoring Our Veterans HONORING OUR VETERANS: Left to right, Keynote Speaker Andrew Biggio (Iraq/Afghanistan), joins fellow veterans Lloyd Sayles (Vietnam) and Eugene Decareau, (a U.S. Army veteran from the Korean War era) as they await the start of the Saugus Veteran’s Day program at the Veterans Park yesterday (Thursday, Nov. 11) .

Here is a summary of the campaign fi nance reports that were due eight days before the election: Debra C. Panetta was reelected with the second most votes (2,121) to win the vice-chairmanship of the Board of Selectmen for the next two years. During the period of Jan. 1 to Oct. 25, 2021, she raised $6,125 while spending $5,635.80.

Vogler T he transition will be much smoother and easier for the Saugus Public Schools Administration following this year’s biennial Town Election. Superintendent Erin McMahon, who has been on the job since July 1, already knows four of the fi ve School Committee members who were reelected on Nov. 2. Her predecessor – former Superintendent David DeRuosi, Jr. – had to work with four new members plus a former member he had worked with previously after the entire fi ve-member board was replaced two years ago. That former member was Arthur Grabowski, who was involved in DeRuosi’s hiring, but was out for one term before being swept in during the 2019 election. But Grabowski was the lone incumbent who didn’t get reelected this year, fi nishing seventh in a fi eld of seven candidates and more than 500 votes behind School Committee Member Joseph “Dennis” Gould, who grabbed the fi fth and fi nal SWEARING | SEE PAGE 6

Page 2 THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 12, 2021 COVID-19 cases hit another plateau Doctors warn that pandemic is still not over By Christopher Roberson T he COVID-19 pandemic continues to hang on despite the tremendous progress that has been made to control the spread of the virus. Dr. Daniel Kuritzkes, chief of the Infectious Diseases Division at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, said the number of cases is leveling off once again. “Things are slowing down, but gradually,” he said, adding that 1,000 to 2,000 cases are being reported every day for a positivity rate of two percent. Kuritzkes was also clear about what needs to happen to move away from the plateau and continue the downward trend. “The rest of the Lawrence A. Simeone Jr. Attorney-at-Law ~ Since 1989 ~ * Corporate Litigation * Criminal/Civil * MCAD * Zoning/Land Court * Wetlands Litigation * Workmen’s Compensation * Landlord/Tenant Litigation * Real Estate Law * Construction Litigation * Tax Lein * Personal Injury * Bankruptcy * Wrongful Death * Zoning/Permitting Litigation 300 Broadway, Suite 1, Revere * 781-286-1560 Lsimeonejr@simeonelaw.net population that hasn’t been vaccinated needs to get vaccinated,” he said. In addition, Kuritzkes said “substantial transmission” has continued among schoolage children. “They are the remaining vulnerable population,” he said. Looking ahead, Kuritzkes said he does not see COVID-19 going away completely, adding that it could eventually become endemic much like influenza. “Unfortunately, I don’t see any reason for real optimism,” said Kuritzkes. David Cecere, spokesperson for Cambridge Health Alliance, said that while there have been significant improvements, the pandemic is not likely to go away any time soon. “While things are better than they were this time last year, we are still seeing COVID-related infections,” he said. “It’s premature to call for an approaching end to the pandemic.” Dr. David Hamer of Boston Medical Center agreed that COVID-19 cases have been steady since early September. He also said it is safe to “mix and match” vaccines when getting a booster shot. In fact, Hamer said he advises patients who received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine to get their booster shot using either the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine. However, he said there continues to be new waves of the virus. “There will be a constant risk of reintroduction; we’re coming down from our most recent wave,” said Hamer. “It’s still a pandemic.” Hamer also agreed with Kuritzkes in that the virus could become endemic. “We need to learn to live with it,” said Hamer. According to the state Department of Public Health (DPH), 4.7 million residents have been fully vaccinated and approximately 630,000 residents have received booster shots. However, the DPH also reported that 54,200 individuals have tested positive for COVID-19 despite being vaccinated. As of November 8, the total number of cases in Massachusetts had risen to 803,165, according to the DPH. Within that figure, COVID-19 has taken the lives of 18,689 residents. Putting that in perspective, the town of Foxboro has a population of 18,618, according to the 2020 census. Revere resident takes part in Commonwealth Classic ballroom dance competition Albert Nicholls of Revere participated in the Commonwealth Classic ballroom dance competition held on November 5 at the Burlington Marriott Hotel. With his Instructor Saori DeSouza as his partner, Nicholls entered 12 dance heats in the Beginner and Silver 1 in the 51-60 and 61-70 year age groups. He placed first in the “Professional Rising Star” event for American Rhythm dance styles, which included East Coast swing, rumba and cha-cha. In addition, Nicholls placed second in three dance scholarship challenges. Nicholls enjoyed cheering for his other teammates and appreciated the dedication of his teacher to challenge him to make his best effort in his ballroom dancing. (Courtesy Photo)

THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 12, 2021 Page 5 ~ THE ADVOCATE ASKS ~ TOWN ELECTION 2021: some of the good advice from seven candidates for the Saugus Board of Selectmen and School Committee who did not get elected on Nov. 2. Editor’s Note: Even though they did not win, seven candidates who ran for the Board of Selectmen and School Committee offered some interesting ideas on what they would do for the betterment of Saugus. Here are some highlights of the answers that these candidates offered during a six-week question and answer period leading up to the election. Leo M. Fonseca, Jr., who finished 10th in the race for Board of Selectmen Q: In 100 words or less, what do you consider the town’s most underutilized asset? This could be a facility, program, person or other resource that isn’t being used to its full potential – or used at all. As an elected official, what would you advocate to make sure Saugus residents receive the best benefit possible from this asset? A: In my opinion, the town’s most underutilized asset is our organic downtown space. We have the perfect opportunity to create what so many other towns and cities have done. We need to be creative and selective about it – it takes a person who’s been involved in this process in the past, as I have, but there is no reason we should be taking a back seat to our neighbors – and I will work to get Saugus where WE need to be.

Q: In 100 words or less, what do you consider the most urgent challenge facing Saugus town government? And as an elected selectman, what would you do to help address that challenge? A: The revitalization of Cliftondale Leigh Michelle Gerow Square – having a “downtown area” is vital, and I believe not having one is a real weakness in Saugus. In order to continue the Town’s growth and prosperity, I will work hard with Town leaders and residents to shape what this should look like.

The committee that Superintendent McMahon has been working with for the past four months remains mostly intact, with former School Committee Member Vincent A. Serino joining Gould, School Committee Chair Thomas R. Whittredge and veteran members Ryan P. Fisher and John S. Hatch. Whittredge will serve another term as committee chair after finishing as the top vote getter for the second-straight town election, with 2,095 votes. Serino won the honor of serving as vice-chair after finishing second in the election with 2,030 votes. Hatch finished third with 1,852 votes. Fisher, the vice-chair during his previous two years, finished fourth with 1,816 votes. Gould had 1,666 votes, beating out Leigh Michelle Gerow for the fifth seat. With a small audience on hand and four of the committee members wearing face masks, Town Clerk Ellen Schena presided over a swearing-in ceremony in the School Committee Room at the Belmonte School Administrative Offices early last Thursday night. Gould was absent from the meeting after being forced to follow COVID-19 protocol, according to Whittredge, who noted that Gould was greatly disappointed in not being able to attend the ceremony.

Grabowski refused to step down, but the committee voted to censure him and strip him of his committee assignments. During the election campaign, Whittredge had accused Grabowski of threatening a school employee and ordered the meetings to be conducted remotely by Zoom videoconferencing to protect the staff member and others who didn’t feel safe. But during a brief meeting following last Thursday’s (Nov. 4) swearing-in ceremony, Whittredge publicly thanked Grabowski for his service to the town. “I do want to wish Mr. Grabowski the best,” Whittredge said. “He served a long time on the School Committee. Thank you for your service, Mr. Grabowski, and best of luck in the future,” Whittredge said. Whittredge told his colleagues that it was “an honor” to serve as School Committee chair again. “Everybody who got reelected deserved to be reelected,” Whittredge said. Then he praised his new vicechair, Serino, noting “his experience is going to be invaluable.” “I’m really looking forward to some good things happening in the future,” Whittredge said. Serino said he welcomes the next “great couple of years” and “moving the district forward.” Hatch expressed similar sentiments. “This board really understands what our mission is.

Page 10 THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 12, 2021 THE SOUNDS OF SAUGUS By Mark E. Vogler H ere are a few tidbits that you might want to know about this week in Saugus. A Veterans weekend in Saugus The town observed its official Veterans Day at Veterans Park yesterday. And in addition, patriotic people in town also geared up to celebrate the 246th birthday of the U.S. Marine Corps on Wednesday, Nov. 10. But Capt. Stephen L. Castinetti, U.S. Navy retired and Commander of the Saugus Veterans Council, said there is a special tribute planned for both occasions for folks who don’t mind driving to another North Shore community. The Beverly High School JROTC, under the direction of Sgt. Maj. Ken Oswald, USMC (Ret), will be hosting a ceremony tomorrow (Saturday, Nov. 13 at Beverly High School at 1830. The keynote speaker will be Commander John Benda, 76th in Command, USS Constitution, with entertainment by the Singing Trooper, Dan Clark. All are invited free of charge. “Let’s get out and support our veterans on Saturday,” Castinetti said. For more details, you can contact Steve by email (stevecastinetti@comcast.net) or phone (781-389-3678). Farewell to my favorite veteran My Uncle Kenny recently passed away just a few weeks after reaching his 99th birthday. Kenneth Almeida was a U.S. Veteran of World War II who did two tours of duty in the European Theatre with the U. S. Navy Air Squadrons, earning European, African, Middle Eastern and World War II victory medals. After his return in 1945, he was assigned to the Parachute Experimental unit in Center Lakehurst, N.J., according to his obituary. “This unit was a new Navy unit to research parachuting safety. While in this unit he earned his Navy Gold Parachute Wings and was designated a Navy Parachutist for experiment and research. “Discharged in 1946 he went to work in the Civil Service at Quonset Point, Rhode Island. He retired from the Civil Service in 1973 with 34 years of government service. His job assignment with the government involved aircraft and manufacturing companies in the U. S. involving contracts, spare parts, and assembly lines. His last assignment was in Japan at the Kawasaki Aircraft Company as plant manager for the U.S. Government contracts returning battle damaged aircraft back to duty during the Vietnam War.” A great American patriot, a loving family man – and a man of great faith. That was my Uncle Kenny. And what he did after the service and retirement was also quite impressive, as detailed in the obituary: “Mr Almeida will best be remembered for his work with the programs he set up for the Swansea Recreation Program, in 1957 a model airplane construction school was started to construct aircraft models and learn to fly them. The program got national copy in Model Magazine. In 1958 he started the Swansea SQD of Civil Air Patrol and through this program lots of local boys and girls received top awards. Some of the youth of this area were selected for International Cadet Exchanges. Major Almeida in 1960 was selected for his leadership to escort 10 cadets to Peru on the International Cadet Exchange Program. Again in 1961 Major Almeida was selected as escort officer to take outstanding cadets to Perrin Air Force Base Jet Program. “A very dedicated pilot for 70 years, he will be remembered for his aviation day programs he set up at the Fall River Airport, so families could fly. All the money made was given to charities.” For years, it was kind of neat to mention to some of my friends and acquaintances around the time of Veterans Day every year that my Uncle Kenny was a World War II veteran. So, this is the first year of my life that I can no longer make that proud boast. So it goes, that I got up early one day last week to make the drive down to Swansea to pay my respects to my last surviving uncle – the most accomplished veteran that I ever knew. Of course, he was a great uncle, too – one I will always think of around Veterans Day. Placement on the ballot overrated? GUESS WHO GOT SKETCHED! In this week’s edition, we continue our weekly feature where a local artist sketches people, places and things in Saugus. Got an idea who was sketched this week? If you do, please email me at mvoge@comcast.net or leave a phone message at 978-683-7773. Anyone who correctly identifies between now and Tuesday at noon the Saugonian who was sketched qualifies to have their name put in a green Boston Red Sox hat with a chance to be selected as the winner of a $10 gift certificate, compliments of Dunkin’ at the 1204 Broadway Saugus location on Route 1 North. But you have to enter to win! Look for the winner and identification in next week’s “The Sounds of Saugus.” Please leave your mailing address in case you are a winner. (Courtesy illustration to The Saugus Advocate by a Saugonian who goes by the name of “The Sketch Artist”) Political candidates in local elections like to make a big deal about how their name is drawn for placement on the ballot. I wonder how much it really matters. To the discerning voter who takes the time to read the names and pick his or her choice, I question whether it does really matter –unless we have a bunch of lazy voters out there. Just consider these examples from this year’s town election results: Veteran School Committee Member Arthur Grabowski was in the top position among the 10 School Committee members. But he finished dead last among the seven candidates – and more than 500 votes behind the fifth-place finisher and final candidate to get elected. Then you have the case of Board of Selectmen Chair Anthony W. Cogliano, Sr. His name was the last one among 10 selectmen candidates. But he wound up getting the most votes and winning the chairmanship. And back to that School Committee race: former School Committee Member Vincent A. Serino was at the bottom of the ballot. He wound up getting the second-highest vote total to nail down the vice-chairmanship. Then, there is veteran Housing Authority Chair William B. Stewart. He was last among the authority candidates. But he beat his nearest opponent by 384 votes. Go figure. 24th Annual Ghost Story Contest winners announced Saugus.net owner Eric Brown sent us the following press release to let folks learn about the winners for his 24th annual Halloween ghost story contest. “The contest has grown increasingly international, and four of the twelve winners were from outside the United States. None were from Massachusetts this year. “The winners came from England (UK), Georgia, Haryana (India), Illinois, Iowa, Meghalaya (India), New Jersey, South Carolina, Tehran (Iran), Texas, Vermont, Virginia, and West Virginia. Entries came from many U.S. states and Canadian provinces as well as a smattering of countries scattered across Europe, Asia, and the Middle East. “Competition was fierce. As the number of entries coming from out of state and from other countries has been increasing, the number of local winners has been on the average decreasing. “All the winning stories themselves plus charts showing the distribution of winners can be found online at: https://www.saugus.net/Contests/Halloween/ For further information, please contact Eric Brown at eric@saugus.net.

The “Annual” Turkey Trot – a popular race that’s been going for more than 20 years – returns to Breakheart Reservation after health concerns about COVID-19 led to its cancellation last year.

Congratulations to Shirley Bogdan for getting her name drawn from the green Boston Red Sox hat as the winner in last week’s “Guess Who Got Sketched” Contest. Here’s last week’s answer, offered by the person who goes by the name of The Sketch Artist: “The answer to last week’s sketch is Marty Graney. “Marty is a Marine Veteran and National Guard veteran. He does alot of good services out in our community, but most often it’s behind the scenes, where he takes very little or no credit at all. “Over the years, Marty has been involved with a lot of veterans-related projects, activities and events – too many to mention here. He once served as Chairman of the Saugus Veterans Wall Monument Committee. “Marty is very often and willing to serve others. A few years ago, he assisted in helping a fellow Veteran become mobile again and improved the gentleman’s quality of life by such a deed. “He say he moved here from Malden about 50 years ago ‘because Saugus at the time had one of the best school systems in the state.’ “‘All of my children – Mark R. (1984), Kristine L. (1986) and Sean P. (1990) all graduated from Saugus High. I’m very proud of my children,’” he said. “‘I hope you don’t plan on writing anything on me, as I prefer to remain behind the scenes,’ he said. “Marty is a private person however, he can’t help but shine wherever he is! Yours Truly, “The Sketch Artist” A “Shout-Out” to special teachers Jeannie Meredith provided us with this week’s nomination to a pair of local educators who deserve some special praise. “I wanted to give a ‘shout out’ to 6th grade teachers Kyle Morgan & Michelle Dwyer at the Saugus Middle High School! “I was thrilled to read about the Harvest Festival they held with their students and families on October 20th under the full moon,” Jeannie writes. “This is what the 21 st Century education is all about. It was great to hear from students about how much they enjoyed this style of learning. I hope we can continue to see more project based learning projects in the near future. Keep up the good work Saugus Public Schools.” Want to “Shout-Out” a fellow Saugonian?

Page 12 THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 12, 2021 Sachems suffer another crushing late-game defeat T By Greg Phipps he Saugus Sachems entered this week’s action still searching for that elusive first victory. They have come excruciatingly close to entering the win column twice, and last Thursday night’s 15-14, heartbreaking football defeat at Greater Lawrence Tech was about as close as a team could come without winning. The Sachems held a 14-7 lead into the final minute. But the host Reggies, who accumulated more than 400 yards of total offense, drove for the game-winning touchdown. They scored as time expired. Saugus still held a 14-13 edge that didn’t last long, as Greater Lawrence, which improved to 2-7, bowled in for the twopoint conversion and the victory. The contest was tied 7-7 at the half before Saugus quarterback Sean O’Rourke found his favorite target Drew Gardiner on a 40-plus yard scoring pass in the third quarter. The extra-point kick gave the Saugus quarterback Sean O’Rourke and receiver Drew Gardiner hooked up again for a goahead, second-half touchdown in last Thursday’s heartbreaking loss to Greater Lawrence Tech. (Advocate photos by Greg Phipps) Sachems a 14-7 lead. It stayed that way until the final play. The Greater Lawrence loss was hauntingly similar to Saugus’s late-game setback at Salem back on Oct. 7. In that contest, the Sachems owned a 6-0 lead until the Witches tallied twice in the final three minutes to steal it. The clinching touchdown came on a 90-yard interception return when the Sachems appeared to be driving for the potential game-winning score. Grabbing a win in fall 2021 will now be a major challenge for Saugus. The 0-9 Sachems took on the 7-2 East Boston Jets at Christie Serino Jr. Stadium on Thursday night (after press deadline). Against common opponent Winthrop this season, the Jets emerged victorious 22-14 while Saugus was blanked by a 22-0 margin against the Vikings. The Sachems end the season with the annual Thanksgiving Day battle against Peabody on Nov. 25. The Tanners were 5-4 overall entering this week’s action. Saugus girls notch playoff win before losing to top seed D By Greg Phipps espite having to make a lengthy trip to Cape Cod, the Saugus High School girls’ soccer team found a way to overcome potential travel fatigue and pull off a comefrom-behind, 2-1 victory over the Sandwich Blue Knights last Thursday in the preliminary round of the Div. 3 playoffs. The Sachems, who were awarded the 33rd seed in a 44-team statewide field, fell behind 1-0 in the first half. But two goals in the final 20 minutes of the game catapulted Saugus to the next round, where they faced the top-seeded Norwell Clippers. In last Saturday’s first-round matchup with the Clippers, Saugus fell behind 3-0 after one half. The Sachems gave a better account of themselves in period two (giving up just one score) but came up short by a 4-0 count. Saugus finished the season with an 11-9 overall mark and a postseason win on the resume. In the win over 32nd seed Sandwich, Shawn Sewell scored the game-winner for Saugus with about five minutes remainin regulation. Maddie Goyetche struck paydirt when she drilled a direct kick that landed just under the crossbar to even the contest with approximately 17 minutes on the clock. Twelve minutes later, Sewell would put home the game-winner. The Saugus players mobbed each other after the final horn sounded. Saugus goalie Felicia Reppucci had a solid game in net – her lone blemish coming when Sandwich’s Lily Hofmann beat her at the 25-minute mark of the first half to give the hosts the lead. In all, it was a strong team effort for Saugus both on offense and defense. Most of Saugus’s 10 reguShawn Sewell scored the winning goal and Maddie Goyetche delivered the tying tally in last Thursday’s comeback win at Sandwich in the preliminary round of the Div. 3 playoffs. (Advocate photos by Greg Phipps) ing. She got free behind the defense and whistled a shot past the reach of Sandwich goalie Abi Kinney. From there, the Sachems were able to shut down any attempt by the Blue Knights to even the contest. The Sachems pretty much carried the play in the second half and, still trailing by a goal, were finally able to put one in the net with less than 20 minutes left lar-season wins this season were of the blowout variety. The Sachems outscored opponents by 39 goals in those games – the only close one being a 2-1 win over Winthrop back on Oct. 1. So it boded well to see the Sachems prevail in a tight, low-scoring game last Thursday. Senior players departing from this year’s squad are Goyetche, Jordan Morris, Reppucci, Jenna Tennant, Alycia Martinez, Kylie Phillips and Brianna Giardullo.

THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 12, 2021 Page 13 SAUGUS GARDENS IN THE FALL Here’s what’s blooming in town this week to make your walks more enjoyable By Laura Eisener T he frosty nights we had over the weekend have brought a change to the landscape. There are still some very vivid foliage colors, but many leaves have changed to muted tones of caramel, bronze, cranberry and pumpkin as they encounter the colder temperatures. Some garden flowers have given up for the season, but others are rebounding in the warm daytime temperatures. Now that foliage is falling, the small flowers of the common witch hazel (Hamamelis virginiana) can more clearly be seen along Pine Tops and Hemlock Road in Breakheart Reservation although they have actually been blooming for several weeks already. Walking and driving around town this week, you can see many seasonal transitions. On Monday morning the center was a beehive of activity as holiday lights were being installed at the rotary in Saugus Center and on the honey locusts (Gleditsia triacanthos) lining Central Street. Doorways on several homes have Christmas wreaths up this week while just a few doors away jack-o-lanterns may still be smiling from the steps. A few houses have seasonal garden flags waving with turkeys or cornucopias to celebrate the harvest and thanksgiving. It may take a while to get used to the sun setting earlier in the afternoon, but most of us appreciate not having to get up in the dark in the morning as we reacclimate ourselves to standard time. Pleasant weather later this week encouraged many to gather at the corner of Winter Street to appreciate the veterans, and we will soon be thankful for the opportunity to gather with relatives and friends at Thanksgiving. Hickories (Carya spp.) are very common in the woods around here and provide some much-needed wildlife food EXHIBIT | FROM PAGE 4 celebration. Guests will learn how West African slaves pioneered Black self-governance and how white America used voting suppression methods to constrain elections. The exhibition’s story begins with the first Black King/Governor in Massachusetts, known as Pompeii, who lived in Saugus between Vinegar Hill and A VIEW FOR THE SEASON: We can catch a glimpse of the Saugus River through open branches and golden sugar maple leaves from the upper lawn of the Saugus Ironworks National Historic Site. (Courtesy photo to The Saugus Advocate by Laura Eisener) FALL ON DISPLAY: Straight trunks of white pine (Pinus strobus) and golden foliage of hickory (Carya sp.) near a picnic area in Breakheart Reservation have a dramatic form and color this week. (Courtesy photo to The Saugus Advocate by Laura Eisener) STILL INTACT: This compound leaf of shagbark hickory (Carya ovata) in Breakheart Reservation has fallen with all its leaflets still connected. (Courtesy photo to The Saugus Advocate by Laura Eisener) since there were far fewer acorns produced this year than last fall. Squirrels have been eagerly gathering hickory nuts as well as those of the related walnuts (Juglans spp.) to supply them with energy through the winter. We have several similar hickory species in New England, but shagbark hickory (Carya ovata) may be the best known, and older trees are easy to recognize even when the leaves are too high up to be easily examined. On older trees the “shaggy bark” is clearly seen, although it takes many years of growth for the trees to develop it. We also see quite a bit of pignut hickory (Carya glabra), which has less rough bark the Saugus River. He was elected by the Black community in 1740. From there, it follows other Black New Englanders who have earned this title and explains the relevance of their contributions. Salem United, Inc. was founded in 2015 by three Black women: mother and daughter Lorraine and Doreen Wade and their colleague Su Almeida. The Wades have traced their family and which got its name because the nuts are not as sweet. Both have pinnately compound leaves with five leaflets each and beautiful yellow to golden fall color. In the accompanying photo, the entire leaf has fallen to the ground intact, but it is not unusual for individual leaflets to fall separately from the petiole, making it more difficult to recognize the true leaf shape. On hickory, walnut and honey locust trees, the leaflets of each compound leaf are attached to each other by small petiole-like connections and often do not fall as a single unit when autumn arrives. There are a few other hickory species occasionally found in the Northeast, and history back to the 1600’s in Massachusetts. Salem United, Inc. President Doreen Wade has taken a powerful interest in preserving the history of Black self-governance in New England. This exhibit is the fruit of her research efforts. Doreen was the speaker at the November meeting of the Saugus Historical Society. As part of her research for the exhibit at the Lynn Museum, IT LOOKS EDIBLE: Frost on the Saugus Ironworks outdoor bronze model quickly melts as the sun rises, but in the early morning the crystals briefly make the tiny forge building and other features resemble a gingerbread town. (Courtesy photo to The Saugus Advocate by Paul Kenworthy) many people will be enjoying a pie this month made from the nuts of the closely related pecan (Carya illinoiensis). Pecans’ native range is somewhat south and west of New England, but it is hardy enough to grow here and is occasionally planted in our area. Hickories may be common in the woods, but they are not commonly sold in nurseries because of their long taproot, which makes them hard to transplant. I do know of one mature hickory that is a street tree on Jasper Street, large enough to show the shaggy bark – it was a stunning gold a few weeks ago, but most of its leaves are gone now. It seems she has uncovered information about Pompeii, who was given his freedom by Saugus resident Daniel Mansfield and whose home was the gathering place for local slaves and freedmen. The Saugus Historical Society would also like to remind those interested in local history that books written by the Society’s October speakers, Doug Heath and Alison Simcox, will be available through the Socian appropriate tree to usher in the cozy season, with the scent of dinner being smoked over a hickory wood fire, and snacks of tasty hickory nuts being savored by people and wildlife.

Page 14 THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 12, 2021 ELECTION | FROM PAGE 5 to move Saugus forward. Elizabeth Marchese, a former School Committee member who finished 6th in the race for the Board of Selectmen. Q: In 100 words or less, what do you consider the town’s most underutilized asset? This could be a facility, program, person or other resource that isn’t being used to its full potential – or used at all. As an elected official, what would you advocate to make sure Saugus residents receive the best benefit possible from this asset? A: The most underutilized asset is our Department of Public Works but ONLY because it is underfunded and understaffed. Saugus, Melrose and Wakefield all have about the same population per census of 28,000 residents. Stoneham has a population of approximately 23,500. This is NOT inclusive of renters which I am positive adds even more especially to the Saugus numbers. Our Saugus DPW has 15 active employees. Wakefield and Melrose have 35-40, and Stoneham has 29. Our DPW is responsible for road work, water, sewer, parks, and forestry. Given the new projects and improvements in our town as well as the ever increasing population, this department is completely overburdened. Imagine if it was adequately staffed? We as taxpayers have invested many taxpayer dollars into physical improvements to Saugus. We now need the work force to protect our investments and that is by adding additional man power to an already overburdened DPW. Q: In 100 words or less, what do you consider the most urgent challenge facing Saugus town government? And as an elected selectman, what would you do to help address that challenge? A: The largest challenge facing Saugus town government is how to reduce or control the ever increasing tax burden upon our residents. Property tax and water bill rates have greatly risen this year. I fear we are slowly taxing our residents out of their homes, especially those on fixed incomes. Now add the building of the new Northeast Vocational School along with the need for a West Side Fire Station and staffing, this burden will ultimately be passed on again to our resident homeowners. It’s time to think outside of the box and find ways of bringing more revenue into Saugus to alleviate the burden on our residents. One way is to utilize our Wheelabrator Committee and to sit down to negotiate a host community agreement and/ or a landfill operations contract containing tipping fees such as is in existence with the town of Shrewsbury. Another way is to attract more businesses such as Town Meeting Member Joseph Vecchione is attempting to do with the Cliftondale Revitalization Committee. It is imperative that no matter what the results on November 2nd our government leaders work together for solutions. Darren R. McCullough, the animal control officer who finished 8th in the Board of Selectmen’s race. Q: In 100 words or less, what do you consider the most urgent challenge facing Saugus town government? And as an elected selectman, what would you do to help address that challenge? A: I feel as though the biggest challenge facing town government is the COVID-19 pandemic we continue to face. The Covid virus has changed the way we communicate with one another, and has created many obstacles and challenges while continuing to facilitate meetings within our town government and remain a full service community. The Covid 19 virus has impacted the way we converse, govern, educate our children, and live our lives as a whole. If I was fortunate enough to be elected as a Saugus Selectmen, I would work collaboratively with the towns Public Health Director, Towns Administration and School Administration to continue making the health and safety a priority for our residents. Q: In 100 words or less, how would you grade the way the Town of SauLaw Offices of Terrence W. Kennedy 512 Broadway, Everett • Criminal Defense • Personal Injury • Medical Malpractice Tel: (617) 387-9809 Cell: (617) 308-8178 twkennedylaw@gmail.com gus is being managed? Please pick one of the following: Excellent. Good. Fair. Poor. As an elected official, what would you do to help improve the level of service to town residents? A: I honestly would rate the current management, good. There is always room for improvement with any administration. I think first and foremost, the residents would want every elected official to stop the Methadone Mile from becoming part of our neighborhoods. Every official should be putting pressure on our State Representatives to stop this complete and utter disregard for our community. How can we give the residents the level of service they need if we continue to build these enormous apartment buildings? They are already putting a strain on our schools, and Police and Fire Departments. How can the residents get the level of service they need when all of our resources are being depleted? I personally feel that our community should always come first. Domenic Montano, a Saugus Police Officer and former Board of Selectmen candidate who finished 7th in the Board of Selectmen’s race. Q: In 100 words or less, what do you consider the most urgent challenge facing Saugus town government? And as an elected selectman, what would you do to help address that challenge? A: Opioid Epidemic and Public Safety Staffing. The town needs to get ahead of the opioid epidemic by having services in town for these individuals so that together, we can assist families in need. Public safety staffing needs to be considered with first responders, (Fire, Police, EMS) responding to these calls. I would like the town to consider the DPW and its workers. I believe that they are severely understaffed, making emergencies in town, where they respond to, increasingly difficult (i.e. fallen trees, plowing, sanding). Drawing attention to these issues is something that I would address as an elected Selectman. Q: In 75 words or less, what is the single most important reason why you have decided to run for the Saugus Board of Selectmen this year? A: I feel as though it is my mission to continue to be a voice for the community. I dedicate my time to being involved in town and being a role model for our youth. I want to be the voice for our seniors, veterans and disabled community while continuing to maintain a strong presence in town and making a more vibrant downtown. I want to see to Saugus as a beautiful place for years to come. Former Animal Control Officer Harry Young, who finished 9th in the Board of Selectmen’s race. Q: In 100 words or less, what do you consider the town’s most underutilized asset? This could be a facility, program, person or other resource that isn’t being used to its full potential – or used at all. As an elected official, what would you advocate to make sure Saugus residents receive the best benefit possible from this asset? A: The most under-utilized asset we have is grant monies. We need a dedicated grant writer. Saugus misses many funding opportunities because we have no one looking into the numerous offerings for what amounts to essentially free money. We miss many chances for funding for traffic safety, homeland security grants, environmental and public safety are just a few examples. While we may not qualify for some grants, we would but these are missed simply because we haven’t had a dedicated grant writer for years. Someone whose sole purpose is to find and write grants. This is something I feel we should make a priority. Q: In 100 words or less, what do you consider the most urgent challenge facing Saugus town government? And as an elected selectman, what would you do to help address that challenge? A: An urgent challenge that needs addressing is route 1. We need to look at the zoning allowing all the new housing developments. Collaboration with all the departments in town is needed to determine how to best address the strain on our resources. Currently we have a shortage of manpower in all our public safety departments including ambulances. We shouldn’t be putting residents at risk because the town does not have the resources needed to cover the influx of new residents. We must make sure the town’s resources grow along with housing. We need to keep the safety and services in town a priority. School Committee Member Arthur Grabowski, who was the lone incumbent to be defeated in the School Committee race. He finished 7th. Q: In 100 words or less, what do you consider the town’s most underutilized asset? This could be a facility, program, person or other resource that isn’t being used to its full potential – or used at all. As an elected official, what would you advocate to make sure Saugus residents receive the best benefit possible from this asset? A: In my opinion our most underutilized asset is our school buildings. Since it is an accepted fact that our students are two years behind, why are we not utilizing our schools for after school programs to help them catch up? With the millions of dollars of grant monies available we should be implementing as many after school programs as possible. We should even offer English as a second language classes not only to students but to adults and parents as well in the evenings, on Saturdays and during the summer. These opportunities are essential to help students and families. Q: In 100 words or less, what do you consider the most urgent challenge facing Saugus Public Schools? And as an elected School Committee member, what would you do to help address that challenge? A: While the new Superintendent works to implement new standards, teaching techniques and evaluation methods it becomes imperative to have the bodies necessary to implement them. Currently there are many teaching positions open. Recently I received a note from an 8th grade parent who related that their student recently had five classes and four were being taught by a substitute and when substitutes were not available a para was called upon to sit in . This student will soon be leaving the district because of not having a highly qualified teacher for every class. Our clerical staff at the schools are wholly inadequate to meet the needs of students and staff. We need to make sure that we have enough staff to meet the needs of the students....all the great planning in the world is no good without the staff necessary to make it happen. First time candidate Leigh Michelle Gerow, who finished 6th in the School Committee race. Q: In 100 words or less, what do you consider the town’s most underutilized asset? This could be a facility, program, person or other resource that isn’t being used to its full potential – or used at all. As an elected official, what would you advocate to make sure Saugus residents receive the best benefit possible from this asset? A: Parents are our most underutilized asset. They hold the key to many of the answers that the board and Superintendent grapple with. Tapping into the Parent perspective can help to shed light on problems when there seem to be no solutions. As a board member I will listen to parents and what they have to add to the conversation. I’ll advocate that their voices be heard amidst the most challenging times, always remembering that parents and students are who I was elected to represent. Q: In 75 words or less, what is the single most important reason why you have decided to run for the School Committee this year? A: I was motivated to run for School Committee by a desire to broaden the representation on the board and to ensure that we are meeting the needs of all students in the Saugus Public Schools. As a mom and a parent to a sevenyear-old Belmonte STEAM student, I bring the skills, experience and fresh perspective that the board vitally needs.

Beacon Hill Roll Call records local representatives’ and senators’ votes on roll calls from prior sessions. There were no roll calls in the House or Senate last week. $150,000 FOR HOUSING OMBUDSMAN (H 4002) House 141-18, Senate 38-2, overrode Gov. Charlie Baker’s veto of $150,000 for the creation of an independent ombudsman’s office in the Executive Office of Housing and Economic Development to receive, investigate and resolve complaints brought by applicants to and participants of the emergency assistance shelter program and other housing transition program. Baker also vetoed several sections requiring the filing of reports related to housing programs. “The required report is unduly burdensome,” said Baker in his veto message. He also noted that he does not support the $150,000 for an ombudsman. Supporters of overriding the veto said the creation of and funding of an ombudsman’s office is important and will help thousands of people navigate these programs and find affordable housing. They noted the required reports will help increase transparency. (A “Yes” vote is for the $150,000 and requiring the reports. A “No” vote is against the $150,000 and reports). Rep. Jessica Giannino Yes Rep. Donald Wong No Sen. Brendan Crighton Yes IMPACT OF COVID-19 ON CHILDREN’S BEHAVIORAL HEALTH (H 4002) House 147-12, Senate 39-1 overrode Baker’s veto of a provision requiring the Children’s Behavioral Health Advisory Council to conduct an analysis of the existing and anticipated impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on children’s behavioral health and the programs and support systems designed to help soften the impact. In his veto message, Gov. Baker said he vetoed this section because his administration’s existing Behavioral Health Roadmap, the product of a multi-stakeholder process, is the most comprehensive approach to identifying behavioral health needs and implementing services to provide the most effective care for all Massachusetts residents, including children.

Beacon Hill Roll Call tracks the length of time that the House and Senate were in session each week. Many legislators say that legislative sessions are only one aspect of the Legislature’s job and that a lot of important work is done outside of the House and Senate chambers. They note that their jobs also involve committee work, research, constituent work and other matters that are important to their districts. Critics say that the Legislature does not meet regularly or long enough to debate and vote in public view on the thousands of pieces of legislation that have been filed. They note that the infrequency and brief length of sessions are misguided and BHRC | SEE PAGE 17 ANSWERS 1. El Capitan 2. It “cultivates the hobby of growing giant pumpkins throughout the world” 3.

CATALDO MAKING GIFTS I f you plan on making gifts of appreciated property such as stocks or real estate, keep in mind that the donee of your gift will accept the property with a cost basis equal to your cost basis. The cost basis might be the purchase price of the original stock or real estate plus any improvements made to the real estate. If the real estate is rental real estate, the cost basis is reduced by depreciation taken over the years since fi rst placed in service. Generally, it is best to gift assets that have not appreciated much, if at all. Cash is always a good asset to gift because there are no cost basis issues or date of death valuation issues. You must always consider whether or not you deem it best to make outright gifts to children or to make gifts to an irrevocable Trust for their benefi t. An outright gift to a child that might have creditor issues or that might be involved in a divorce would not be such a good idea. Trusts have spendthrift provisions that would offer protection to a child in the event of a lawsuit or divorce. Currently, there is no gift tax in Massachusetts. The federal gift tax exemption is currently $11,700,000. Under the Biden Administration proposal, the gift tax exemption would be reduced to $1,000,000. The federal estate tax exemption is currently $11,700,000. The Biden Administration’s proposal is to reduce it to $6,000,000. The federal gift tax exemption and estate tax exemption are a unifi ed exemption. You can either gift $11,700,000 federal gift tax free or die and bequeath $11,700,000 estate tax free, but you can’t do both. Although there is no gift tax in Massachusetts, taxable gifts (i.e. gifts in excess of $15,000 per donee) reduce the $1,000,000 threshold for being required to fi le a Massachusetts estate tax return. If you gave away $750,000 and were still left with $750,000 in assets at the time of your death, even though your estate ended up being less than $1,000,000, a Massachusetts estate tax return would still need to be fi led. The threshold would have been lowered to $250,000 in estate assets. When you die with appreciated stock or real estate that is includible in your taxable estate (even though your estate might be less than $11,700,000 for federal purposes or $1,000,000 for Massachusetts purposes) your beneficiaries obtain the benefit of Internal Revenue Code Section 1014 and receives a new cost basis equal to the fair market value at the time of your death. The huge benefi t to your benefi ciaries is that when they sell the appreciated property shortly after you pass, there would be no capital gain or very little capital gain resulting in no capital gains tax or very little capital gains tax. Another benefi t of Code Section 1014 is that the benefi ciary of the appreciated property receives preferential longterm capital gains tax treatment even if the beneficiary sold the appreciated property within one year from the date of death. Remember, short term capital gains are taxed at ordinary income tax rates federally and are taxed at the rate of 12% in Massachusetts. It is always important to select what assets to gift and how to make the actual gift. The tax implications can be signifi cant.
