Selectman Corinne Riley: I believe the biggest reason for our residents to count their blessings, and I hope that everyone feels this, is that Saugus is a community that will always be there to help those in need, especially in tough times. I have seen it so many times and in so many ways, whether houses of worship reaching out, individuals who look to give to those having difficult times, public servants in countless ways, community nonprofits helping with toy drives, hat and mitten drives, or just neighbors helping neighbors.

I do the Veterans Food Bank, too, at the Saugus Senior Center the third Sunday of the month. I have a whole military family. I have two brothers who were disabled who served in Vietnam. I like to talk to veterans because I have something in common. I want to help people who need help. That’s my joy. Stephen Manley, 72, a 1969 Saugus High School graduate who served overseas in Germany. He’s a retired automotive technician who had his own shop. He’s a lifetime member of the Eastern Massachusetts Soccer Association and has worked in Essex County for more than 30 years as a referee. He began working in the Food Pantry in 2017. Manley: I worked for this church as a kid. I have been involved with fi ve to six Thanksgiving food drives here. I worked with the late Wendy Reed, who headed up the Food Pantry for a long time. I got involved in the Food Pantry after the death of John Patrick Denahy, who was married to my cousin, Joanie. I took his position. I just get the satisfaction of helping people. And I’m glad we got the food to hand out. Brenton Sullivan, a Saugus High School senior who plays defensive tackle on the Saugus High School football team. Sullivan: This is my first time at the Food Pantry. I just came to help people move their food to their cars. Dolores Barry, daughterin-law to the late Dick Barry. She likes to volunteer at the Food Pantry. Barry: It’s wonderful seeing all of the volunteers here. Saugus is a great place to live. I’ve lived here 40 years, and it’s a great community with a lot of wonderful volunteers who like to give back to the community by helping people who need assistance.

That makes me feel happy.” Jessika Rodriguez, the mother of two Saugus High School football players: freshman Jordan Rodriguez and junior Isaiah Rodriguez. Jessika: This is our fi rst time doing a Thanksgiving food drive. We’ve done toy drives with youth groups. I like it when the younger people in the community are involved in a project to give back to the community. I think it’s very important for younger people to do this. It’s very humbling. Sometimes, we as a society don’t do a very good job in teaching our youth to get involved in helping people. Cliftondale Congregational Church Pastor Joe Hoyle, who organized his second Thanksgiving food drive during the four and a half years he has been offi ciating at the church. Pastor Hoyle: This is a welloiled machine. And they make sure this runs smoothly – not just on Thanksgiving. The regular volunteers make this work all year round. They’re here every week, giving of their time to help fi ght food insecurity in Saugus. And we’re following the protocol of the way it’s been done in the past. We’re still following the same protocols that Wendy Reed left in place. Her absence is still felt a couple of years later. But her spirit lives on here.

If Not, Please Call for a Free Consultation. 14 Proctor Avenue, Revere (781) 284-5657 The season began on an emotionally draining and sad note for Justin, who had to cope with his dad being diagnosed with Stage 4 Lung Cancer and later losing his gallant battle to the dreaded disease. “We found out this summer that his dad was sick,” Sachems’ Head Coach Steve Cummings said in an interview last week. “It was just eight weeks from the time of his dad’s diagnosis until he passed away. Justin, who was a twoway starter for this year’s Sachems football team – a slot receiver on offense and a safety on defense – missed a few practices. But he never missed a game – including one just days after his dad died. “The day before the game – which was two days after he found out that his father passed away, he was just standing in the locker room and looked right at me and said, ‘Coach, I’m playing. I’m playing tomorrow,’” CumDan 1972 A wise old owl says we must be doing something right. 50 years of selling quality cigars R.Y.O.

It was normal to him. This was how he wanted to grieve. To watch our guys take him and walk him through that difficult scenario …. To watch your young men be there and do that kind of thing for another human being is why we do this job,” the coach said. Justin received this year’s Saugus Lions Club Heisman Award – an honor bestowed annually to an unsung hero or the player who best represents himself as the heart and soul of the Sachems football team. “This young man has shown an incredible amount of character and an incredible amount of strength – more than you ask for any 17- or 18-yearold kid,” Coach Cummings told the audience in Giggles Comedy Club, where the senior players for Saugus High School and the Peabody Tanners football teams dined together a week before their Thanksgiving Day showdown. “So when we were asked to give an award at this banquet, there was really no doubt as to who we were going to give it to: the guy on our team who basically made this season everything he wanted it to be because of everything he was forced to go through this year,” Coach Cummings said. A tragic start to the season Justin’s dad – Joseph A. Belluscio, Jr., 61 – had just retired from Massport after 40 years of work when he learned he had Stage 4 Lung Cancer. About two months later, he succumbed to Lung Cancer. “I’ve been going through a hard time and all of these kids helped me through it,” Justin said in a recent interview. “They helped me a lot. My teammates were part of the healing process for me,” he said. Brenton Sullivan, a defensive lineman, said he and his teammates rallied around their grieving teammate. “It INSPIRATION | SEE PAGE 6

THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – WEDnESDAy, nOVEmbEr 23, 2022 Page 5 “The Old Sachem” The NFL AFC East By Bill Stewart hree weeks ago, I predicted the Patriots as fi nishing with an 8 wins and 9 losses record, but the Jets changed all that this week. The Pats won 10-3 to keep their hopes alive for a playoff spot. I’m now betting on 9 and 8. On Thursday they play one of the toughest teams in the NFL, the Minnesota Vikings, in Minneapolis, and I can’t see the Pats winning. Mac Jones hasn’t led to a T touchdown in the last two games. He does not appear to look around for open receivers, instead tossing to the fi rst choice, covered or not. He also does not toss the ball away when he knows he is in trouble as most of the quarterbacks do. He has been sacked about fi ve times each over the last two games. Of course, the offensive line contributes to his problem, but someone has got to teach the off ense how to play the game. Is there a problem with the off ensive coaches who don’t know how to run an off ense? Anyway, I fi gure the Pats to lose at Minnesota (8-2) only four days after the Jets game. Next Buffalo (7-3) comes to Foxboro and only a miracle could see the Pats winning. That would be two straight losses. The Patriots should win their next two games: December 12 at Arizona (4-6), and at Las Vegas (3-7). Then they come home to host Cincinnati (6-4) on December 24, which could go either way. Their final regular season games are Miami (7-3) at Foxboro and at Buff alo, also 7 and 3, and to win either game is nearly impossible, unless either opponent loses their quarterback before or during the contests. Ranking the AFC East Division, it appears that either Miami or Buff alo should be the champion, with my favorite Buff alo. I expect Buff alo to win their last seven: at Detroit (46), at the Patriots (6-4), Jets (64), Miami (7-3), at Chicago (38), at Cincinnati (6-4), and fi nish with the Patriots in Buff alo. This would give them a 14 and 3 record. My take on Miami is three wins at home: Houston (1-8 -1), at San Francisco (5-4), at LA Chargers (5-4). Then they travel to Buff alo (7-3), which should be a loss. They should win their fi nal three games: at home against Green Bay (4-7), Patriots (6-4) and the Jets, also 6 and 4. I count the Jets out; they battle Minnesota (8-2), Buff alo (73), Detroit (4-6), Jacksonville (37), Seattle (6-4) and fi nish with Miami (7-3). I don’t have last week’s scores for San Francisco and Arizona who play Mon“The Old Sachem,” Bill Stewart day evening (after I submit the article). Through nine weeks Buff alo has a 27.3 point scoring average and allows 16.8 points average for opponents. Miami appears to have a weak average, scoring 25.2 points and allowing 24.1. The Pats are 22.6 and 18.4, and the Jets 21.8 and 19.6. My latest predictions for the season are Buff alo 14 and 3, Miami 13 and 4, Patriots 9 and 8 and the Jets 9 and 8. We’ll see if the Old Sachem is still capable of peering into the future of the NFL. I expect next week to do some comments on the FIFA World Cup of soccer, which is being played this year in Qatar.

Page 6 THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – WEDnESDAy, nOVEmbEr 23, 2022 INSPIRATION | FROM PAGE 4 was a very tough time for Justin when his dad died. We gave him support and he definitely powered through it,” Brenton said. “If anything, playing while dealing with that personal tragedy made him even better. He went out and played well that game after his father passed away. And going out and playing after all the personal adversity he faced, Justin was definitely an inspiration for his teammates,” he said. Last week’s award presentation at Prince Pizzeria wasn’t something that Justin was expecting. “I was surprised. I didn’t even know there was going to be an award presentation, “Justin said. “It’s been a good year and I want to thank every one of my teammates for being with me when I needed them the most and throughout the season. With their support, I played every game,” he said. He hopes to play college football Justin said he hopes to attend college after graduating from Saugus High. He’s mostly an A and B student. And he has dreams of playing collegiate football. “When he came here as a freshman, Justin was one of those kids who gave you everything,” Coach Cummings recalled. “He’s been such a great kid,” the coach said. “His dad made it to a few games to see Justin play.” After the death of his dad, Justin essentially became the man of the house. It was just him, his mother and five sisters. “He never used anything as an excuse,” Coach Cummings said in an interview recently, recalling how Justin reAn emotional embrace: Sachems’ Head Coach Steve Cummings congratulated Saugus High School player Justin Belluscio last week, just before the Saugus Lions Club presented him with the Saugus Lions Club Heisman Award.

He really enjoyed playing football. It was that time to get things off his mind – and all of the things he’s been going through,” the coach said. “He’s one of those kids who works really hard and does all the things you ask of him – even in just a very tough situation. I couldn’t be more proud of how he handled everything and persevered in the face of such adversity,” he said. Coach Cummings said Justin played the game with great passion. “As a player, he’s tough. He’s always in the right spot. He’s got a great nose for the ball,” Coach Cummings said. “Every once in a while, he shows up and makes a big play or is part of one. He’s always around the ball. He always seems to be around the ball and in the right spot. If there’s a ball on the ground, he’s right there and a part of the play. If a pass gets deflected, he’s near the action,” the coach said. “The great thing about this sport is the camaraderie that players seem to share – being around the guys who play. Really, there was not a lot of thought on who was going to get this award,” Cummings said. It’s a short week into the holidays. Run! Don’t walk! Happy Thanksgiving!

Page 10 THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – WEDnESDAy, nOVEmbEr 23, 2022 Football Sachems a heavy underdog against Tanners in annual Thanksgiving Day game Saugus running back Tommy DeSimone the last two years. That one triumph came in Sachems quarterback Cam Preston By Greg Phipps T his year’s Thanksgiving Day matchup between the Saugus Sachems and the Peabody Tanners will pit two teams that have gone through very different high school football seasons. The Sachems have struggled to a 1-9 record while the Tanners have experienced the flipside of that, going 9-1. As a result, Peabody is the clear favorite entering this year’s annual Turkey Day clash, which will take place at Christie Serino Jr. Stadium (scheduled 10 a.m. kickoff). It will be the inaugural Thanksgiving Day contest at Saugus’s recently-opened new venue. In recent years, the Tanners have dominated the series, winning the last eight times the two squads have faced each other. One of those contests was in the spring of 2021, when an abbreviated schedule of games took place to make up for the 2020 fall season, which was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Saugus last emerged victorious in 2013 when it came out on top by a 25-14 score. Peabody currently holds a 47-28 lead in the Thanksgiving Day games (not counting the 2021 spring contest). The Tanners won by a 41-6 margin last year and are likely seeking another convincing win over a Saugus program that has tallied just one win in Saugus’s most recent game at Whittier Tech. The Sachems pulled out to a 21-6 lead after three periods before holding on in the final quarter to come away with a 21-20 victory. Led by quarterback Cam Preston, who has thrown five touchdown passes in the last two games, receiver Isaiah Rodriguez and running back Tommy DeSimone, the Sachems have played better over the second half of the season. They’ve averaged over 20 points a game on offense. The Sachems’ defense, led by linebackers Braden Faiella and Jaiden Smith, will have its hands more than full trying to contain a Peabody offense, led by quarterback Shea Lynch, that has averaged over 40 points per game.

THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – WEDnESDAy, nOVEmbEr 23, 2022 Page 11 Saugus Gardens in the Fall Here’s what’s blooming in town this week to make your walks more enjoyable By Laura Eisener H appy Thanksgiving, Saugonians! I hope everyone will enjoy their harvest feast. Traditional menus are full of fall season vegetables, especially root vegetables that can be harvested after frost and stored for winter: parsnips, beets and turnips, for example. Some of these are things we seldom eat at any other time, but which form an essential part of memories around our grandparents’ Thanksgiving table. Although wintry temperatures have arrived, our gardens are still sporting a few fall flowers. The afternoon sun still shines on red, yellow and occasionally orange crabapples still clinging on trees around town. Turkeys have been popping up in every neighborhood – not all of them real ones! One of the most creative displays is one with fabric turkeys sitting in a magnolia tree on Forest Street. Meanwhile, at a traffic island on the corner of Ballard Street and Lincoln Avenue, a stack of hay bales is already looking forward to spring, as the uppermost bale is sporting a new crop of bright green grass. We all know what is coming right after Thanksgiving! Small forests of conifers are appearing at garden centers and other places as Christmas approaches. At work I have been surrounded by balsam fir (Abies balsamea) wreaths, swags, centerpieces and cemetery baskets, immersed in the holiday fragrance. Because of its scent, balsam fir and the closely related Fraser fir (Abies fraseri) are far and away the most popular tree species in our part of the country for Christmas trees and other live decorations. I saw the truck of trees being unloaded at Little Brook Florist and Garden Center on Lincoln Avenue, and Huberman’s Greenhouses on Oriental bittersweet, an invasive exotic vine, is ripe and dispersing its seeds. (Courtesy photo to The Saugus Advocate by Laura Eisener) Vine Street also has trees and decorations ready for the season. Decorations are starting to go up all over town. As more leaves fall, we can see farther into the woods, and certain brightly colored fruits become more noticeable. Among the woody vines which become more noticeable in fall is Oriental bittersweet (Celastrus orbiculatus). This is an invasive, exotic vine that has spread extensively in New England and much of the country, especially in disturbed areas and woodland edges. Our native bittersweet (Celastrus scandens) produces far fewer fruits and has been outnumbered by the invasive species so that now even bittersweet vines you find deeper in the woods are usually the invasive kind. The seeds are frequently spread by birds, which eat the fruits and then “plant the seeds surrounded by fertilizer” somewhere else. This is why you may find them coming up in your compost pile or other locations in your garden, even if there had not been vines nearby before. Once they have been growing for a dozen years or so, A Thanksgiving display in the Lincoln Avenue neighborhood wishes everyone a happy Thanksgiving. (Courtesy photo to The Saugus Advocate by Laura Eisener) bittersweet vines can become very heavy and sometimes break the branches of trees. Since this vine climbs by twining around tree trunks, it also can strangle trees by preventing the trunks from growing wider. Bittersweet vines can form dense thickets and crowd out other species in areas that are not vigorously maintained. I have seen it climb telephone poles and in other ways wreak havoc on the environment. Bittersweet fruits are very colorful and were originally introduced in the United States as an ornamental plant. They are poisonous to mammals but do not seem to harm the birds at all. Bright orange-red berries are encased initially in a yellow-orange “shell,” which opens when the fruit is completely ripe. In the past, bittersweet was a popular Thanksgiving and harvest time decoration, but using it on your doorway or disposing of it in your compost will likely lead to unwanted seedlings popping up in your garden or your neighbors’ garden, as birds may perch on your door wreath to devour the fruits. Indoors, they are less likely to be accessible to wild birds as long as they are disposed of in a way that ensures they will go deep into the landfill. Once you have oriental bittersweet growing in your garden it is difficult to control, so it is wise to try to keep it from getting established in the first place. Delightful fabric “turkeys” perch in a magnolia tree on Forest Street.

Page 12 THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – WEDnESDAy, nOVEmbEr 23, 2022 The Sounds of Saugus By Mark E. Vogler Good morning, Saugus! Best wishes to everyone for a safe and happy Thanksgiving Day weekend. If you are traveling long distances on the highways over the holiday weekend, be careful out there. If you are looking forward to a family gathering or a get-together with friends, have a good time. But limit your alcohol consumption to two drinks. It’s usually the third one that gets you in trouble. Better yet, have somebody who isn’t drinking be the designated driver. The highways will be crowded enough without impaired drivers endangering motorists Tomorrow, Saugus, along with other communities across Massachusetts, will enjoy High School football rivalries. Saugus High will host the Peabody Tanners tomorrow (Thursday, Nov. 24) at 10 a.m. at the Christie Serino Jr. Memorial Stadium at the Saugus Middle/High School Complex. On its website this week, the administration of Saugus Public Schools is requesting that all spectators purchase tickets online to save time and money. Online sale ticket prices are as follows: $9, adults and $6, students/senior citizens. Cash sales will be available at the door; however, all tickets will cost $10. The School Department will also have the online purchase option available at the gate on game day at the reduced cost. For more information for the online tickets, check on the Saugus Public Schools website. Counting our blessings Thanksgiving has always been one of my favorite holidays. Families and friends gather around a great meal after a High School football game rivalry. And many people count their blessings, reflecting on the positive things going on in their lives. This week, I asked selectmen to share their own thoughts on what they believe Saugus residents should count their blessings for (See story in this week’s edition). I gave my own situation as editor of The Saugus Advocate for the last six and halfplus years some reflection. I am thankful that I’m healthy enough to continue working as the Editor of The Saugus Advocate as I observe my 50th year in newspaper journalism. I still enjoy the challenges of putting out a small community newspaper that comes out on Fridays – except on special holiday weeks. And I am blessed to have a supportive publisher backing me up and a cast of contributors who file interesting articles, photos and artwork on a regular basis which enhance the paper. So, I am very grateful to receive frequent contributions from Laura Eisner (Saugus Gardens), Jay DeMarco (Small Saves cartoon), Joanie Allbee, Bill Stewart (The Old Sachem), Janice Jarosz, Tom Sheehan and The Sketch Artist – to name a few. I also count my blessings that I met a wonderful lady that I enjoy being around, and she’s a Saugus woman. I really, really, really like her so much that I gave her my high school graduation ring. Stay tuned. A big night for Saugus coming up Plans are already in the works for one of the town’s most popular community events – the annual tree lighting ceremony and holiday festivities, set for 7 p.m. Friday, Dec. 2. Santa Claus will be coming to town. There will be some outside fun and games for kids – including the popular petting zoo. Santa Claus will make his arrival. This is a Saugus event that I always look forward to attending. It’s a great family event. Stay tuned for details. Special Town Meeting Monday night Just weeks after having one Special Town Meeting, town officials are gearing up for another. The key item on the warrant for a Special Town Meeting set for Nov. 28 is an article that would grant the town manager authority to research, develop and participate in a contract, or contracts, to aggregate the electricity load of the residences and businesses in the town. Another article on the agenda would authorize the Board of Selectmen to acquire title to the land and buildings located at 42 Jackson St. for public parking and other municipal purposes. Another article will permit the town to appropriate money for acquiring the land and buildings at 42 Jackson St. In addition, there are several fiscal housekeeping initiatives that will be considered at the meeting, which gets underway at 7:30 p.m. in the second floor auditorium at Saugus Town Hall. Saugus Lions Club Toy Drive Saturday The Saugus Lions Club will hold its 3rd Annual Roaring Toy Drive 2022 Saturday (Nov. 26) at the Saugus Senior Center, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Saugus Senior Center at 466 Central St. Because of last year and continuing this years’ craziness, more families are hurting more than ever and are in need of help for Christmas. As we all know when times are tough, toys for the children may get overlooked. Retired Capt. Bill O’Malley of the Saugus Fire Department will be collecting the toys and delivering them to those families in need. Please share this information with your family, friends and co-workers. If we can all tell a handful of friends who have found themselves far luckier than most, to donate 1 extra toy, imagine all the toys we can collect. Let’s all try to make Christmas of 2022 far better than the rest of the year. Together we can make a difference and help put some smiles on many faces. This week’s “Shout Outs” Debora de Paula Hoyle, Administrative Assistant, at the Cliftondale Congregational Church, wants to publicly acknowledge and thank the folks and organizations who contributed to making the Thanksgiving Food Drive at the Saugus United Parish Food Pantry a successful event that will help about 100 needy families in the Saugus area have a decent Thanksgiving Day meal. “We had the following entities host food drives for us: Saugus Public Library, Belmonte Middle School field hockey team, Saugus YMCA, Girl Scout Troop 67718, ATCK Fitness, Pioneer Charter School of Science II, Rockland Trust, Saugus Catholics,” Debora wrote us in an email yesterday. “We also received financial donations from the Elks and Kowalsky Insurance. Across the two days, we had volunteers from the other churches in Saugus, the community, Saugus High football team, M&T Bank, Salem Five Bank, Pioneer Charter School of Science II, Saugus YMCA, Bishop Fenwick High School (Peabody),” she continued. “This is in addition to the many, many others who donated their time and resources--including those who do GUESS WHO GOT SKETCHED?
