Cars and kids at the Iron Works A special day for Saugus Boy Scouts get to talk about vintage Cadillacs and LaSalles at car show By Mark E. Vogler


others who were in the photo-taking mood last Sunday morning flocked with their kids to the red-and-tancolored car that looked like something from out of a gangster movie. David Pierce, of Saugus, the owner of the 1929 Cadillac LaSalle, didn’t mind letting the kids hop into the back seat of

the antique car so the moms could add to their family albums or Facebook pages. “These things are a labor of love because you don’t recoup your labor,” Pierce said as he recalled the countless hours over the years of restoring a classic car he rescued from a “barn sale” in Rochester, N.H., 38 years ago. “I took all the fenders and hood and grill off. And I start-

ed to strip the paint with a razor blade. I just stripped it and painted it,” he said. The 89-year-old car was the oldest of some three dozen that were on display in the parking lot of the Saugus Iron Works National Historic Site. The event, which was sponsored by the New England Region Cadillac & LaSal-

SHS freshman Chase Ledbury discusses value of Cross Country running for Middle School students

Editor’s Note: For this week’s interview, we sat down with Chase Ledbury, the team captain and top runner on last year’s Belmonte Middle School Cross Country Team, and asked him why he thinks all healthy students should participate in the sport. Coach Christopher Tarantino, who engineered the resurgence of Cross Country as a sport at the Middle School last year, credited Chase for making a key contribution as “an ambassador for the sport to his peers.” Chase, 14, is a freshman at Saugus High School, where he is an Honor Roll student and participating in the Academy Program. He is a member of the JV/freshman football team. As an eighth-grader at Belmonte Middle School last year, he was a member of the Saugus High School varsity wrestling team, competing in the 113-pound weight class. Currently, there is no Cross Country team at the High School, but Chase does compete in spring track. He is a member of “Our Generations of Faith Program” at Incarnation Catholic Church in Melrose. He is the son of Todd Ledbury, assistant deputy superintendent of the Middlesex County Sheriff’s Department, and Pamela Ledbury. Todd Ledbury, who helped coach Cross Country in its revival year at the Belmonte Middle School last year, lettered in track for four years at Malden High School. Some highlights of this week’s interview follow. Q: When did you start running? A: When I was born. That’s why they call me Chase. Seriously, I started running when I was six, with the summer track program Q: Chase, please tell me how you got involved with the Cross Country sport at Belmonte Middle School last year. A: Last year I was a captain of the team … I helped out the kids and I recruited a lot of friends in my grade (eighth) and other grades. And I was, like, a mentor toward them. Q: So you were the star or the fastest guy on the team, it’s okay to say. A: Yeah! Q: First off, tell me what it entails for kids to get involved, as far as the commitment. A: The commitment is pretty good. If you really want something … if you try, you can get very good at it. It helps out a lot of things. Q: About how many hours a week does it take for practice and the meets? A: For me, last year, we probably practiced every day, ex-

IT WAS WORTH IT: Chase Ledbury, 14, a freshman at Saugus High School, in an interview this week talks about the benefits of competing in Cross Country running for the sake of health, exercise and fun.

cept for Sunday and maybe Fridays, but I would run on Fridays anyway. We also had practices on Saturdays. Usually the practices were, like, an hour and a half, so after school every day, for about an hour and a half. And sometimes over the weekend. Q: It’s pretty much, like, a daily thing if you want to be on the team and get the most out of the program? A: Yes, it’s a full commitment: maybe two hours at most, after school. The High School sports are even more of a commitment, but at the Middle School, it’s pretty good if you want to do, like, a first-time sport. And it won’t kill you. Q: What did you get out of it … being a member of the Cross Country Team at the Belmonte Middle School? What are the benefits for a kid who decides to join this team? A: It teaches you a lot about team-building, because it involves cheering on your teammates at the races. And you make a lot of friends. And also the physical aspect … you get some good exercise and you become a better runner. You can withstand more running, the more you do it. You may not run the full mile, maybe, when starting off, but by the end of the season, you can run the full course and maybe even more – better and faster. It helps your endurance. Q: What’s the minimum you can expect to get out of this experience? A: A fun time! It is very fun. Q: And ever ybody who shows up gets to participate. A: Yep. Everyone. We also had three kids on our team with autism. And everyone races at the same time. It’s really good, so there’s no one being left behind – no one watching or sit-

ting out. Everyone is in the action, having a great time. Q: So, what was it like running with those kids (the students with autism)? A: To be honest with you, it really wasn’t that different. Everyone knew each other. It was fun. You just cheered them on like you would a regular teammate, and they would cheer you on. They fit in perfectly and it was very good for them. And it was good for everybody on the team. Q: This is the type of sport, that even while some kids aren’t cut out for sports … If you’re healthy and you want to get some exercise, this is the sport where you can compete and not have to worry about making the team. A: Yes, it’s a great exercise. And you don’t have to win a race to get a great workout. You could come in last, but still have a great time getting exercise and bettering yourself. That’s the one good thing about Track and Cross Country. It’s racing against yourself. There might be other people in the race, but it’s more like beating your personal time and making yourself better. Q: And definitely great exercise. A: Yes. It’s very good to build up endurance. Q: And doing something healthy … A: Yeah. It’s great activity to start off doing. Q: So, do you have to maintain a special diet to get the most out of it? A: Not really a diet – just eating healthy. Q: But, actually, I guess it doesn’t matter if you are running a lot of miles. You’re just going to burn it off.

he First Congregational Church in Saugus Center greatly appreciates all the community help to unload the first shipment of pumpkins for its Annual Pumpkin Patch. The church is again hosting this event for the fifteenth year; it will run through Halloween, October 31. A large group of players from Saugus Pop Warner Football, Patrick Follis from Agganis Construction

and many other Saugus and out-of-town people, including the very dependable Lahey family, made the unloading of the “Pumpkin Truck” happen. Pumpkins of all sizes are now displayed on the church lawn and will be available for purchase every day from 10 a.m. to closing. The next Pumpkin Truck will arrive this Saturday, October 13 at 1 p.m. Volunteers

It is fully furnished with all the necessary tools and equipment, including hoses, nozzles, breathing apparatus, a hydrant wrench, a lock removal kit, a voice-amplifying communication system, various extinguishers and much more, the town manager noted. It took about 18 months for the manufacturer to build the fire truck.

The Pumpkin Patch looks forward to having everyone come to celebrate this great fall season event. This yearly event wouldn’t be possible without the support of the Saugus community. “We’ll be introducing the entire community to this new apparatus,” Saugus Fire Chief Michael Newbury said in an interview Wednesday. “I think this adds something special to a great event,” the chief said. The new engine won the support of the Board of Selectmen, Finance Committee and Town Meeting during last year’s budget process as part of an ongoing effort to make continued public safety and capital improvements throughout the community. “I would like to thank the Board of Selectmen, Finance Committee, Town Meeting, and residents of Saugus for their continued support of these important community initiatives,” Crabtree said.

State program audit findings SHS students received a week less of required structured learning time

By Mark E. Vogler


program audit issued last month by the state Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) determined that Saugus High School students were short 42 hours in structured learning time over the 2017-18 school year. “A review of documents and staff interviews indicated that all students at Saugus High School are scheduled for 948 hours of structured learning time per year, rather than the required minimum of 990 hours,” noted the final report of the “Coordinated Program Review.” That was the most glaring of 14 deficiencies uncovered in a program review conducted last spring by a DESE team of investigators that evaluated selected criteria in the program areas of special education, civil rights and other related general education requirement and English Language learner education. “In terms of the missing hours, we will work with the school and district to ensure that the deficiency is resolved in the future,” DESE spokesperson Jacqueline Reis told The Saugus Advocate. Meanwhile, Saugus Public Schools Superintendent Dr. David DeRuosi, Jr. said he had “no concerns about any of the findings.”“We’re working on it,” DeRuosi said in an interview. “I view audits as a way to look at areas where we need to improve. As a school district, you’re always in a state of improvement. We will look at our procedures and methodology and make the adjustments to move the district forward,” he said. DeRuosi added that “a lot of turnover at Central Office” may have contributed to the deficiencies cited in the DESE report. But the superintendent suggested that the report doesn’t reflect any serious issues in the School District. “There’s a lot happening that’s very positive in this district,” DeRuosi said. Saugus Public Schools is required to submit a Corrective Action Plan (CAP) to state education officials, which was due last Friday. DESE staff will be working with Saugus school officials to make the necessary improvements to bring Saugus Public Schools into compliance. Below are the report’s finding in the three categories. Special Education Rating: Partially Implemented DESE Findings:

• A review of student records indicated that Transition Planning Forms (TPFs) do not consistently include the student’s postsecondary vision or address the student’s disability-related needs. Specifically, record review demonstrated that transitional needs for students, as documented on the TPF, are not always fully addressed as measurable post-secondary goals that are based upon age-appropriate transition assessments, training, education or employment experiences. • A review of documents and staff interviews indicated that although the district has procedures to provide services to eligible students who attend a private school within the district’s geographic boundary whose parents reside in Massachusetts or out of state, the district does not obtain signed written affirmation that consultation with the private schools, in accordance with federal requirements, has occurred. • At Veterans Elementary School, facilities observations and a review of student schedules indicated that the English as a Second Language (ESL) instructional space can only be accessed by passing through the speech and language therapy spaces, which creates auditory and visual distractions for students receiving speech services.

Help needed tomorrow to unload more pumpkins Another shipment of pumpkins is on the way to help replenish the Annual Pumpkin Patch on the lawn of First Congregational Church-UCC in Saugus Center. So, if you have the time and want to share some fall fellowship, come on down to help unload the tractor trailers tomorrow (Saturday, Oct. 13) at 9 a.m. at First Congregational Church-UCC Saugus. Adults and school-age kids are needed to help unload one more tractor-trailer load of beautiful pumpkins and gourds from New Mexico. This is such a great family event! Students can receive credit for community service hours by helping out at the Patch, and local businesses can fulfill their pledges to do community outreach. More than 3,000 pumpkins arrived earlier this month at the church, which is located at 300 Central St. First Congregational Church is hosting this event for the fifteenth year, and it will run through Halloween,

Oct. 31. The church thanks all the nearly 100 volunteers who unloaded the pumpkin truck. Pumpkins of all sizes are displayed on the church lawn and will be available for purchase every day from 10 a.m. to closing. Volunteers are needed to fill the various selling shifts. Anyone interested in helping should contact Carolyn Davis at 781-233-4555. The Pumpkin Patch looks forward to having everyone come to celebrate this great fall season event. Many people like to pose their kids (and even their pets) for photos among the bright orange pumpkins. We also like them to send us the pix so we can post on Facebook (no tagging allowed). Proceeds from the Patch help fund a yearly $500 scholarship for any graduating Saugus High School student who is continuing on to further education. Applications with the criteria listed are available from the church office. Did you know our pumpkins come all the way from the Navajo Reservation in New Mexico? So we are not only helping local Saugus causes, we are also helping the Navajos run their self-sustaining farms. It’s a winwin for all of us! Come on down!

A farewell planned for Rev. Martha A farewell lunch is planned for Rev. Martha Leahy of the First Congregational Church UCC in Saugus Center on Sunday, Nov. 4, from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the church hall (300 Central St.). Sandwiches and coffee will be served.

Martha has been a key person in the community – particularly the faith community – since she was called to Saugus in 2008. She currently serves as leader of the Saugus Faith Community.

Rep. Wong outspending his political challengers in 9th Essex House District race By Mark E. Vogler


ncumbent state Rep. Donald Wong, R-Saugus, who seeks reelection to a fifth two-year term, is outspending his political challengers in the 9th Essex House District seat race. Wong had raised $19,735.62, spent $12,522.83 and had a balance of $8,633.81 in his campaign account, according to the pre-primary report he filed on Aug. 27. He began the year with a starting balance of $1,421.02. The three candidates vying for the 9th District Essex House seat have raised close to $32,000 in campaign contributions while combining for more than $20,000 in campaign expenditures, according to reports filed with the state Office of Campaign and Political Finance. Mathew P. Crescenzo, the Democratic challenger on the ballot for the Nov. 6 election, had raised $11,931, spent $7,871.76 and had a balance of

$4,059.24 in his campaign account, according to his report. Michael A. Coller, who is unenrolled, raised $150 and had no campaign expenditures, according to the campaign reports filed with OCPF. The next report must be filed with the OCPF on or before Monday, Oct. 29. Precincts 1, 2, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9 in Saugus make up the core of the district, which also includes parts of Lynn and Wakefield. Two years ago, district voters re-elected Wong over Democratic challenger Jen Migliore by a lopsided 6,451 to 4,790-margin. Wong won all eight Saugus precincts and each of the four precincts in Wakefield. Migliore avoided a total shutout by beating Wong in Precincts 1 and 2 in Lynn’s Ward 1. Two years ago, Miglore and her Democratic challenger Saritin Rizzuto combined for more than $100,000 in campaign contributions during their primary showdown.

“In the back of the car, there was space to fit six people if they put a seat in,” Troop 62 member Ryan Dennison said as he admired the 1929 Cadillac LaSalle. “It’s got a V-8 engine; the car can reach 95 miles per hour and gets 10 miles to the gallon [of gasoline],” he said. Ryan looked like he was dressed in the perfect color match for the car, wearing a tan Boy Scout shirt and partially red sneakers. Troop 62 member Billy Ferrin-

go said the 1959 Cadillac deVille Coupe intrigued him “because of the space-age design.”The car is owned by Peter Manoogian. “The fins and tail light designs don’t do much for the car itself – it’s all cosmetic … The design is very resemblant of the rocket age or the jet age. With its Vegas turquoise color, this is one of the most iconic Cadillacs,” Billy said. Boy Scout Jake D’Eon used flash cards as he rattled off some facts about the 1961 Cadillac Eldorado Convertible

he was in charge of, and historic events from the year it was made. “In 1961 Yuri Gagarin was the first man in space,” Jake said of the Russian cosmonaut. “President Kennedy was president. The price of the car was $6,477. Now it’s $54,620,” he said. “For me, the most interesting thing about it is the headlight sensor that turns the lights on and off for you,” he said. The Cadillac was another car owned by Manoogian that was displayed in the Iron Works parking lot on Sunday. “This turned out to be a great event,” said Manoogian, who instigated the idea of the car show – a blend of two times in history – the early days of steel and a time when the auto industry relied on the use of steel. “It’s all about connecting kids to their culture and to their community,” he said. Every car has a story It was also a great opportunity for Saugus residents and others who live in neighboring communities to hear interesting stories about the classic cars. There was some interest in some of the accessories that came with Tony Salvaggio’s 1976 Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham that he’s owned for six years. Salvaggio, of Peabody, showed off the original cufflinks and fashion earrings and gold pen that the owner received “to make you feel good when you buy it.” He said he hasn’t used the gifts yet. A woman named Ida Glasser of Newton was the original owner. The car only got about eight miles to the gallon, according to Salvaggio. “These were bombers,” Salvaggio said. “So, you use only premium in these cars – only premium,” he said. Saugus Selectman Scott Bra-


FROM THE YEAR 1961: Jake D’Eon, of Boy Scout Troop 62, used flash card notes, as he talked about this 1961 Cadillac Eldorado Convertible and historic events from the year it was made. Jake was one of 10 scouts who served as “ambassadors” during last Sunday’s car show at the Saugus Iron Works National Historic Site. Peter Manoogian owns the car.

FROM THE ROCKET AGE: Billy Ferringo, of Boy Scout Troop 62, says this 1959 Cadillac de Ville Coup intrigues him “because of the space-age design.” The car is owned by Peter Manoogian.

A BEAST OF A CAR: Nick Finnie, of Boy Scout Troop 62, says the 1976 Coupe de Ville he was in charge of at last Sunday’s car show “is almost intimidating because of how big it is.” The car is owned by Saugus Selectman Scott Brazis.

SPECIAL DAY | from page 4

The Fire Department’s Open House commemorates National Fire Safety Month and is aimed at teaching families fire safety and fire-prevention practices, such as “stop, drop and roll,”planning escape routes, and crawling safely through a smoke-filled room. Papa Gino’s will provide free pizza and children’s fire safety coloring sheets at the event. “Having been to each one of these events over the past 20 years, I can tell you it’s a great event from a public safety standpoint,” the chief said. “Sparky will be there, and there will be balloons and things for the kids. There will be pizza, too,” he said. “I think the real highlight of the day will be having a group of firefighters who work here on a daily basis interact with the public on a more personable level. Our residents will get to see the firefighters as their neighbors,” the chief said. For more information about the Saugus Fire Department Open House, call Captain James Hughes or Captain Scott Phelan at 781-941-1170.

Sachems football bowled over by Gloucester By Greg Phipps

out a comeback win at home would not even come close to against the Gloucester Fish- playing out last Friday night ast season, the Saugus ermen. A repeat scenario, or in Gloucester. The Sachems were picked Sachems nearly pulled perhaps something better, off on their first three possessions of last Friday’s game. That proved to be a bad omen as the undefeated Fishermen (5-0) built a quick 22-0 lead and never looked back. In fact, they kept steamrolling ahead in an eventual 61-15 rout. The loss dropped Saugus to 1-4 on the season and with very little, if any hope of capturing a playoff berth. The Sachems were coming off two strong efforts: a 14-0 shut-

out of Salem in their home opener three weeks ago and a 42-35 loss at Lynn English on Sept. 29, where they battled back from a three-touchdown deficit. Against the Fishermen, the Sachems didn’t get on the board until they trailed 29-0. QB Mason Nickolas hooked up with Christian Correia on a neat 43-yard pass play that set up Marvens Jean’s 21-yard scoring run. The other Saugus score came via a 75-yard kickoff return from Eric Miniscalco. Gloucester led 35-7 at halftime and didn’t let up, outscoring the visitors 26-8 over

the final two quarters to account for the final margin. Saugus managed a two-point conversion, and kicker Javier Martinez-Moretta connected on a PAT attempt. The Sachems will try and get back on track when they host 2-3 Winthrop at Stackpole Field this Saturday at noon. It’s just the second home game of the season for Saugus, which has played on the road in four of their five contests so far. In their final game before the playoff tournament, Saugus hosts a tough Swampscott squad at Stackpole on Oct. 19.

questions – and with the expectations that members of the Saugus Fire Department will be able to answer them. This Open House commemorates National Fire Prevention Month (October). Participants will receive safety tips, such as “stop, drop and roll,” and learn how to plan escape routes and how to crawl safely through a smoke-filled room. In addition, Papa Gino’s, the Dedham, Mass.-based pizza chain, will provide free pizza and children’s fire safety coloring sheets at the Open House. “This event allows us to reach out to the community and arm local families with fire safety tips and procedures,” Fire Chief Michael Newbury said. “Our Open House allows families to get together and prepares them to react if a fire does start,” he said. Papa Gino’s is celebrating its 24th anniversary of sponsoring fire safety open houses throughout New England to encourage families to learn about fire safety. For the past 24 years, Papa Gino’s has sponsored open houses throughout New England, helping to educate more than 2 million people about fire prevention and safety. During the month of October, Papa Gino’s will provide customers with fire-prevention coloring sheets and certificates for kids. Fire department open houses are being hosted throughout Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Rhode Island in October.

At least now people who want to attend that committee’s meetings have a room they can go to. There are specific issues in the most recent posting so that the citizens know what issues will be discussed. And there wasn’t an illegally posted Executive Session (without stating the reason for going into a closed door session). So, at least for the moment, the particular committee does not risk an Open Meeting Law complaint. I would prefer to see a local committee make needed corrections to comply with the law instead of forcing the issue like we did with the Saugus School Committee. But if flagrant and brazen violations come to our attention, I will

I heard through the grapevine this week that certain members of the School Committee were considering attending an Open Meeting Law training session organized by the state Attorney General’s Division of Open Government. If these reports are true, I commend you for taking a progressive step. Attention Precinct 3 voters! With the ongoing construction at Chestnut Woods Rehabilitation & Health Care Center (73 Chestnut St.), there will be a temporary relocation of the Precinct 3 polling location to the Italian American Club at 1 Beachview Ave., the current polling location for Precinct 10 voters.

The Italian American Club has ample parking to accommodate voters from both precincts, according to the town clerk. Elections like the one in November usually draw 50 to 60 percent of the voters, according to Schena.

We normally went with Coach [Stephen] Boudreau. He would go and make us run a little bit

at Breakheart, with a lot of hills and trails. I’d say those were one of the most beneficial practices, other than the ones during the week. Those were like a full workout (on Saturdays) to do good and better themselves more. They could do ex-

tra when they ran on Saturdays at Breakheart. Q: Now, you mentioned that you were used for recruitment purposes to get more to join the Cross Country team.

Page 16

ASKS | from page 15 A: Yes. Q: So, what was your approach? What did you tell these kids to get them interested enough to join? Why do you want to belong to a Cross Country team? A: It was really fun. I said to one of my friends, Cameron [Zabroski] – he joined last year. He was in my grade. He was just looking for a sport to play. He’s a lacrosse player. I told him he should do the workouts and he would be so much faster on the field [lacrosse] when the time comes for your sport. And he did, and he loved it. And he improves a lot, too. He was surprised at how much better he got. Q: So, what was your approach to a kid who never even considered it [Cross Country] before? A: I just said, like, “Why don’t you try it; come down to a practice.” And they would normally fall in love with it … The coaches are really nice, too. Coach T. [Christopher Tarantino] is a really great coach who really helps make you a better runner. And Coach [Stephen] Boudreau is very motivating. And another

LAST YEAR’S HERO: His coaches say Chase Ledbury contributed to the revival of Cross Country at the Belmonte Middle School last year as a role model and ambassador of the sport. Here he is running in a meet last year. Although he has gone on to Saugus High School, he continues to encourage Saugus Middle School students to get involved in the sport.

great thing about it – all you need is sneakers. You don’t need a lot. There’s nothing to lose; there’s nothing to lose for the sport. And if you don’t like the practice, all you have to do is just run with it, and the next day you’ll be fine. Q: Now, you got some kids on the team that never ran before, kids who never participated in sports? A: Yeah. Maybe half of the team. They were athletes, but they never played sports. And they found it very good. It’s challenging, but if you just want to improve yourself – just a little at a time – you can get better at it. You’re on a team, but it’s like a personal sport. It’s like you are one-on-one with yourself – trying to better yourself. Q: I guess there’s not a lot of pressure unless you are one of the top runners. A: Yeah, but it’s so much fun. And every time you run, you make so many friends with other teams. And I keep in touch with them, like, kids from Peabody and other towns I know. I still talk to them today. Q: Now, do you run with these kids? A: Against them. Q: I mean, do you run with them? A: Like practice? No. They’re on other teams and we race them. Q: You said you become friends, so I was wondering if you might run with them over the summer. A: I never have, but I guess I could, but I’ll see some of them over the summer and run against them in track at the Manning Bowl in Lynn. It’s like a meet and open to kids of all ages. Q: So, how does this [Cross Country] help with the academics? A: Like, for time management; it definitely helps with time managing, because you need to go to practice on time. Also for self-discipline. You work very hard to do something. And you just can’t take a test without studying if you want to do the best you can, so you have to make yourself – force yourself – to study in order to do better, so one of the great things that comes out of it is you develop self-disci-

A FAMILY ACTIVITY: left to right, Chase Ledbury, 14, credits his parents, Pamela and Todd, with providing plenty of support and encouragement in his pursuit of Cross Country running. Now a freshman at Saugus High School, Chase was the lead runner last year for the team that revived Cross Country Running at the Belmonte Middle School.

pline, because that’s what Track and Cross Country needs if you want to do your best. It’s all about self-discipline. Q: How many miles do you run a week? A: Maybe, like, two miles a day, and that’s for the practice. And maybe on Saturdays, we would run a little bit more. Q: So, you might run, like, 14 or 15 miles a week? A: Yeah, a little more than that. Q: About 15 to 20? A: Yeah. A lot of kids that do get into it, they get to enjoy the running, and it doesn’t matter where they finish in the race. Q: So, just finishing the race is the important thing. A: Right. And everyone does. Q: Anything else that you would like to share about the sport and why more kids in Saugus should get out there and try Cross Country? A: Yeah, I think if no one is doing a sport, I think it’s a great sport to hop into. You make a lot of friends – new friends from other team – and you just become greater friends with the kids from your school. And this is an activity you could do for the rest of your life. And, like, Coach Boudreau, he’s, like, 71 and he still runs. If you go down to watch a practice, he’s running along with us. Like, if you stick with it, you can run forever. Also, another benefit – if you run Track or Cross Country – basically, you run in ev-

ery sport, so you can just do it [Cross Country] for the workout. … say for, like, basketball … you’ll be running down the court faster instead of just doing nothing for the whole season. And also, coaches like a two-sport or three-sport athlete at school. They want kids getting more involved. And it’s an easy one to get involved with. You just need a good pair of sneakers, so you stay in shape, and it definitely helps with other sports. A lot of peoples’ punishment is our sport. Running is what makes you better. Q: Yeah, that’s where you build endurance, from all of that running, so what would you say the best thing you get out of the Cross Country experience? A: It gets you in really good shape, both mentally and physically. It helps you become a better person. And, also the selfdiscipline part. And it was very satisfying for my friends and me, because the Middle School Cross Country program – which had been gone for several years – so even with the people saying “No” to us, we created it, so that also helped: not listening to all of those people and not taking “No” for an answer. Q: So, I guess you feel pretty good about being the lead runner on the team the year that the sport was resurrected at Belmonte Middle School. A: Yes. I feel pretty good

about that, because it started with three kids – myself and two of my friends – and wound up being more than 20. And then we had a sport. Q: You mentioned that you were into the fast-walk sport, too? A: Yep. That was kind of just for fun. Q: Well, just keeping your body in motion is good. Once you get to my age, where you don’t feel like running because of shin splints and the impact of running on your knees and legs, walking can be a good alternative. When I was younger, I would do the 10K races, but after a few years, the running was tough on the knees and legs, so I switched to walking. It takes a little longer, but a long walk is still good exercise. A: Well, another thing – if you are concerned about the impact of running on your legs, Cross Country is really good because most of the time at most races, you’re running on dirt. If you don’t like to run on asphalt or a hard surface, Cross Country is easier on you. You can run Cross Country without even touching the sidewalks. You can run on the dirt trails, like at Breakheart – grass or dirt. Q: What’s the longest distance you’ve run? A: Probably about seven miles without stopping. Q: What’s your favorite subject? A: I like Science. Math is okay, too. Q: So, what do you want to do when you grow up? Do you have a goal for what you would like to be? A: Maybe engineering for a sneaker manufacturer. Q: Anything else that you would like to share about the experience of Cross Country, running, what you got out of it and why kids who are couch potatoes might want to get involved with Cross Country? A: I think everyone should try to do a sport. It keeps you off the Xbox, and keeps you out of trouble. It’s just another sport to do. And if you don’t want to do it as your major sport, you can use it to do basketball, wrestling or even skip a season and get ready for the mile in track. It’s beneficial to any sport that you want to do.

In addition, materials for school-wide staff training do not incorporate the changes resulting from the amended regulations, including the district’s prevention and behavior support policy, methods of prevention and alternatives to restraint. The materials also include the option for a parent to waive restraint and reporting requirements when written into the Individualized Education Program (IEP), which is not permitted under the amended regulations.

Staff interviews and the relevant Sheltered English Immersion (SEI) endorsement data indicated that most core academic teachers assigned to provide sheltered English instruction to English learners hold the SEI Teacher Endorsement, but some do not. Since the district did not submit its most recent program evaluation, which was a required document for the review of this criterion, the Department concludes that the district does not have a comprehensive process to evaluate the effectiveness of its English Language Education (ELE) programming in developing students’ English language skills and increasing their ability to participate meaningfully in the district’s educational program. The DESE team conducted a Coordinated Program Review in Saugus Public Schools during the week of April 30, 2018. It included interviews with staff and parents, time spent observing classroom facilities, and a review of the programs underway in the district. Each school district and charter school in the state receives a Coordinated Program Review every six years and a mid-cycle special education follow-up visit three years after the Coordinated Program Review.

Savvy Senior by Jim Miller

How to Manage Restless Leg Syndrome Dear Savvy Senior, What can you tell me about restless leg syndrome? I’m 58 years old, and frequently have jerky, uncontrollable urges to move my legs, accompanied by a tingling sensation, and it keeps me awake at night. Jumpy John Dear John, If an irresistible urge to move your legs has you kicking in your sleep, then chances are pretty good you have restless leg syndrome (RLS), a condition that affects 7 to 10 percent of Americans. Here’s what you should know. RLS, also known as Willis-Ekbom Disease, is a nervous system problem that causes uncomfortable sensations (often described as a creepy-crawly feeling, tingling, itching, throbbing, pulling or aching) and an irresistible urge to move one or both legs while you’re sitting or lying down, and the symptoms usually get worse with age. It typically happens in the evenings or nights while resting. Moving eases the unpleasant feeling temporarily. While RLS is not a life-threatening condition, the main problem, other than it being uncomfortable and annoying, is that it disrupts sleep, leading to daytime drowsiness, difficulty concentrating and even depression. What exactly causes RLS is not known, but researchers suspect it could be linked to several things including iron deficiency, an imbalance of the brain chemical dopamine, and genetics – about 60 percent of people with RLS have a family member with the condition. Treatment Options While there’s no cure for RLS, there are things you can do to alleviate the symptoms. Depending on the severity of your case, some people turn to RLS medications like gabapentin enacarbil (Horizant), an anticonvulsant, and dopamine agonists ropinirole (Requip), rotigotine (Neupro) and pramipexole (Mirapex). But be aware that these drugs have side effects including nausea, lightheadedness, fatigue and insomnia. And, while these medications can provide shortterm relief, they can also make symptoms worse in many people who use them long term. So before turning to medication, you should consider some of the following natural RLS treatments first, which are very effective for most people. Check your iron levels. Iron deficiency is believed to be one of the major contributors to RLS, so make an appointment with your doctor and get a blood test to check for this. If you test positive for iron deficiency, your doctor may recommend iron supplements. Exercise: Getting moderate, regular exercise like walking, cycling, water aerobics and yoga can relieve symptoms, but overdoing it or exercising late in the day may intensify them. Daily leg stretches – include calf, hamstring, quadriceps and hip flexor stretches – are also helpful. Check your medications: Certain drugs including antinausea drugs, antipsychotic drugs, some antidepressants, and cold and allergy medications containing sedating antihistamines can make RLS worse. If you take any of these, ask your doctor if something else can be prescribed. Avoid triggers: Alcohol, caffeine, nicotine and refined sugar can all make RLS symptoms worse. Try these remedies: Soaking in a hot bathtub and massaging your legs can relieve symptoms, as can applying a hot pad and/or ice pack to your legs. Pressure can also help, so consider wearing compression socks or stockings. There’s also a new non-drug FDA approved vibrating pad on the market called Relaxis that interrupts RLS episodes and can provide relief to those who use it.

THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, October 12, 2018

The Boy with a Dream It all started as a young kid from Everett taking apart my bikes, painting and putting them back together. At 16 years-old before I even got my driver’s license, I purchased my first car; a 1969 Caddy 4-door sedan with wide gangster white walls and chromed spoke rims. It needed some bodywork and a paint job but I knew from all those years of experience with my bikes that I was up for the challenge. That is when it became clear to me where my future was headed. In May of 1979 I graduated Pope John XXIII High School focusing mostly on Business Management. I owe a lot of credit to Pope John; they had great teachers, all that inspired me in some way shape or form, but three of which stuck out the most in my mind were Sister Peggy, Sister Lorraine and Sister Nancy. They all watched me go through a struggle in my life losing my mother at the age of nine and being brought up by a single dad; but they never allowed me to fail, always going out of their way to help me out. Sister Peggy was like the mother I lost from above and she did everything she could to help guide me in the right direction. To this day, I am extremely close to them all and visit on a monthly basis. After graduation in 1979, I went to Rhode Island Trade Shop School in Providence. Every single day for nine months I drove from Mass. to Rhode Island, all while holding down 1-2 part time jobs in between. The days were extremely long and hard. In October of 1979, I decided to set up a business before I graduated. I rented a building in Chelsea and repaired cars on the weekends. My dream was now becoming a reality with the sole purpose of making my parents proud. In the summer of 1980, I found a shop in Malden thanks to my good friends Mike Tamagna and Paul DiPietro of Tamanga DiPietro Electrical. They rented a building from Sam DeMarco on Maplewood Street and they asked Sam if he would like to rent space to me. Sam worked on the building for five months turning it into a three-bay garage just for me. At that time I felt like I was on top of the world. I was there for around five years and after expanding the shop twice, I knew a bigger space was needed and decided to move on. I found a 10 bay shop that I rented on Franklin Street in Malden. I stayed at that location for six years until the building was sold. The sale was devastating as I had very little time to find another location. My best friend, John MacMillan, a mechanic who worked with me on Franklin Street decided to approach another local businessman, Donald Adelman, owner of Commonwealth Lumbar at 388 Eastern Ave in Malden and together we negotiated a lease. It was basically an empty shed but being under the gun to find a new location quickly, we decided to take a risk. We started from scratch 60 days and 60 nights while running the regular business. With the help of many close friends donating their time we built an incredible 18-bay shop with all new offices and all new equipment. In 60 days we conquered our dreams. In 1999, I was approached by Joe Laham, the owner of North Shore Motors dealership on Broadway. Joe told me he heard that I was a good businessman in Malden and he offered me an opportunity to lease his body shop. At that time his shop was the biggest in Malden at 8900 sq. ft. with 25 bays, 2 spray booths and 3 frame machines. This was a great opportunity and my big chance to be on Broadway in Malden, but the timing couldn’t be worse as I was literally getting on a plane and leaving for vacation. He needed an answer right away and I told him I would call him from my vacation in three days with an answer. After the three days were up, I called Joe and told him I would take it. The lease was for five years with a five-year renewal option. Needless to say, I did not sleep the rest of my vacation. I had no idea what I was getting myself into. When I came back from vacation I took on another two month project setting up the shop on Broadway. This time I had the master help me, Jerry Bartolo, my father. I told him I would get him some help and he had the place cleaned up and painted. I brought in my good friends Tamagna and DiPietro Electrical to wire the new shop for equipment and offices. I was now the largest shop in Malden. I had approximately eight guys on the floor, two office staff and myself. I would look through my office glass window above one end of the shop and think how proud I was of how far I had come. Eleven years later, the dealership had changed hands three times and was not doing well. I decided it was time to start over. I told myself enough is enough it’s time to buy my own building. During my years in business I became very involved with the civic community in Malden. I became a member of the Malden Kiwanis Club, served on the Board of Directors for 10 years in the Malden Chamber of Commerce as well as serving as Vice President and then President. I am very proud to be part of sponsoring and donating to a room dedicated to the Hallmark Health Cancer Center in Stoneham along with the Malden Chamber of Commerce. Therefore, it was extremely important that my business stayed in Malden as it had become Tony’s Auto Body LLC’s home. I looked for many months and finally came across a 5,000 square foot building on Sharon Street off of Eastern Ave. It was a warehouse building but I was once again determined. I worked extremely hard to get all my licensing and permits. Thanks to being a good business man with a good reputation in Malden for many years I got a lot of support from the Planning Board and my lawyer, Atty. Christopher Fallon. I started the process in November of 2007 and passed papers on my building in February of 2008. Now the real work would once again begin with the set up. It was a complete gut out with engineering putting on an addition for spray booths and an office and then transferring all my equipment to my new building while never skipping a beat. May 19th of 2008 it happened, the grand opening. On October 3rd 2018, I will be in business 40 years. I am now 57-years-old and I fulfilled my dream knowing my parents are looking down at me and are very proud of me and what I have accomplished in my life. I want to thank the City of Malden for letting me serve their great community. I am looking forward to many more years to come serving in this great city. To close in this story, I would have to say always treat every customer the way you would want to be treated and remember my favorite words is “to believe and never stop dreaming of what you want in life”. This story is dedicated to my mother and father Rose and Jerry Bartolo. Thank you for always believing in me and guiding me through life. A special thanks to all my loyal customers and hard working and faithful employees that without them I would not be celebrating this great achievement. I want to thank Sam Demarco for giving me my first break and start in Malden.

tion watching literally gallons of water go down the drain. There are two types pumps used. The most common model is a demand-controlled system that comes on from a switch or motion detector located near each fixture. This turns on the circulation pump which stops water from entering the return line; the pump moves room temperature water from the line back into the water heater. The hot water flows to the farthest tap and the sensor then shuts the pump off, leaving the hot water ready for use. A second type of system, an integrated loop system, which uses more energy, keeps hot water circulating through the pipes so it is always available for the taps. In either case you will notice a difference in your water bill. Within a few years you will have saved the money used to install the hot water recirculation pump.

Dear Ask the Plumber, Lately I have been hearing a lot about “Hot Water Recirculation Pumps” and I think I might be a candidate for one. At this point I only know what I have been reading, so I hope you can explain a few things that I don’t completely understand. My house has a 32” x 52” foundation and the hot water heater is in the basement at one end of the house directly under a master suite with toilet, vanity sink, bath and a washer and dryer. I get hot water there quickly, however there is another full bath at the opposite end of the house and it takes a while before I get hot water there. These pumps are said to save water, cut down on energy bills and get hot water to places further away from the hot water tank faster. What can you tell about how they work, the different type of timers and do I need a bypass recirculation valve if I have recirculation pump? Do they do the same thing and if they do, which type of system works best? RONNIE I CANNOT FIND THE ANSWER TO THIS QUESTION, DO YOU KNOW IT? CAN YOU TELL ME AND I WILL TYPE IT IN OR SHOULD I JUST DELTE THE QUESTION AND GO WITH MY ANSWER BELOW? SORRY I JUST CANNOT FIND IT AND HAVE BEEN LOOKING FOR THE BETTER PART OF AN HOUR NOW...

title, defeating Xaverian for the second season in a row, 3510, at Gillette Stadium. DiBiaso reached another milestone this season, earning his 300th coaching win on September 23 at St. John’s Prep. Mayor, City Council to apply $12.5 million Wynn payment to reduce tax rate The City Council unanimously approved a proposal by Mayor Carlo DeMaria on Monday, November 13 to apply the entirety of Wynn Boston Harbor’s $12.5 million payment to the City of Everett toward reducing next year’s tax rate. The mayor made a similar move last year, when he successfully applied the entirety of a $5 million payment from Wynn toward the tax rate.

City Council adopts FY 18 tax rate The City Council unanimously voted to adopt a split levy rate on Monday, November 27, shifting the burden from residential to Commercial, Industrial and Personal Property (CIP) at the highest shift of 175 percent. The FY 18 tax rate will be $13.78 per $1,000 of valuation on residential properties and $33.74 per $1,000 of valuation on CIP properties. If the council hadn’t approved the shift, the flat rate for residential property and CIP would have been $19.28 per $1,000. The shift will not prevent homeowners from seeing a small increase in their actual taxes, as home values have skyrocketed in the city over the last year. On average, single-family home values rose by about $39,000 since the last fiscal year, while two-family and three-family residences on average rose $50,000.

City Council bans pot shops The City Council unanimously passed an ordinance on Monday, December 11 banning the establishment of marijuana shops within the city’s borders. Such a move was possible because of a provision in the state law created in the wake of the ballot initiative le-
