t’s one thing for local school children to read about the militia companies of the Massachusetts Bay Colony of 1629 at the Saugus Public Library. But it’s even more fun for them to follow-up that reading by going to the Saugus Iron Works National Historic Site to talk with some people who have researched that period and love to share their knowledge through reenacting drills or showing off their replica weapons. Kids may even get the chance

to get a real feel for history by touching replica swords, pikes and muskets – under the supervision of the Salem Trayned Band – and then watching the reenacting group perform drills while dressed in period clothing and using historically-correct weapons. “Wow! They let me hold the sword,” Vanessa Murati, 10, told her friends, excitedly on Wednesday afternoon as she stood under a table under a tent in the front lawn of the Iron Works visitors center next to a ta-

tacy Filo said she has long regretted not graduating with the Danvers High School Class of 1995. But it took her family falling into dire financial straits to force the 40-year-old Saugus stay-at-home mother of three children to go back to school to earn the diploma that she longed for. “I’ve been fortunate to have had the support of my husband for over 20 years, so I really didn’t have to worry about having a full-time job,” Filo said in an in-

He remains disabled without a job. “We had no income coming in,” Filo said. “I started to look for employment and then learned my skills were way out of date. I had been home for 10 years with the kids.” Filo’s family ended up on Tran-

And to do this makes it really interesting,” Vanessa said. “Amazing. I have lived in Saugus all of my life.

SWORDS, GUNS AND PIKES: Members of the Salem Trayned Band gave area school children a lesson in some of the weaponry used by militia companies of the Massachusetts Bay Colony in 1629. Children and their parents could hold replica swords and daggers. They could watch drills and demonstrations of loading and mounting replica muskets. Or, they could learn all about the pikes – those 16 1/2-foot-long poles that were used by militia companies as mobile fortification to protect themselves against cavalry attacks

the man in charge of the Salem Trayned Band, who was dressed in his own period costume as he led militia members during drills on Wednesday. “There are eight total and five of us are here today,” Kenworthy said in an interview. “We actually started out as an American Civil War reenacting group. It started out with fencing. It’s the swords and the pikes that interested us. Now we do eight to 10 events a year,”he said. Pointers on the pike During Wednesday’s demonstration, he took time to offer historical insight on the weapons of choice – particularly the pike – and then explained what the reenactors were doing during the drills. Spectators were most fascinated by the pike – that 16 ½-foot-long wooden pole with a spear on top, which he called “a mobile fortification against cavalry attack.”

“If 1,100 pounds of dog food hit the end of the pike, it goes into the ground,” Kenworthy told a curious crowd who gathered around four militia members who adjusted their pikes, according to the various commands Kenworthy shouted out. The dog food was a reference to the unlucky horses who might come charging into the pike. Kenworthy also shared some history with the young and old spectators who turned out Wednesday. “Salem was the first capital of the Massachusetts Bay Colony,” he told them. Charlestown was second and Boston was third, he added. So why is a pike 16 ½ feet long? Because the militia fought in multiple ranks, with overlap, and needed to have longer weapons than the armored men on horseback. Pikes were using in fighting Native Americans, according to Ken-

A generous contribution from the two groups also paid for Colonial dress up clothes for the children who wanted to do their own reenacting. A day at the historic Saugus Iron Works should make learning a history a lot more fun this summer for the students enrolled in the Summer Reading Program.

A REALISTIC EXPERIENCE: On Wednesday, Vanessa Murati, 10, of Saugus, enjoys a special moment during her first trip to the Saugus Iron Works National Historic Site. She got to hold a replica sword that was similar to the weapons used by militia companies of the Massachusetts Bay Colony in 1629. She also got to watch drills by the Salem Trayned Band and the Lexington Minutemen.

now that’s how I’m going to find a job.” Earning her high school equivalency diploma was a challenging task that had its low points when Filo wondered wheth-

And my teacher, Angie [Officehours of study each night.“There Works instructor Angie Smith], were several times when I said, ‘I’m just giving up,’” Filo recalled.

sitional Aid to Families with Dependent Children (TAFDC). She decided to enroll in the OfficeWorks program of Catholic Charities North (CCN) to develop her job skills. At the same time, she received tutoring to prepare for her High School Equivalency Test (HiSET). “It’s been great,” Filo said last Friday, reflecting on CCN’s recent graduation ceremonies at St. Mary’s High School in Lynn, which featured her giving the Valedictorian Address. “To tell you the truth, I didn’t expect any of this. I didn’t expect to make any friends. I didn’t expect to come out of it with the confidence that I have now. And I never thought I would be the head of any class,” she said. Filo was considered top of her class for both completing her HiSET and completing the OfficeWorks training program. “Stacy was a stellar student.”CCN Director Fran Troutman said.

Last Friday, she took a break from job search activities at the CCN office in Lynn to talk about her current and future plans. “One day at a time – that’s my motto,” Filo told The Saugus Advocate. “That’s how I have gotten through the program. And

VALEDICTORIAN | from page 5 she was very supportive. She’s been great,” she said. In her Valedictorian Address, Filo thanked the students who encouraged her to persevere and the teacher who didn’t give up on her. “She had a tough exterior, but inside I could see how much she truly cared for all of us women,” Filo told the gathering of her OfficeWorks teacher, “Miss Angie.” “I was finally able to get that one thing that I had long for,”Filo said in her speech. She also shared her fears: “Going into it, I was scared. I had been out of school for so long and didn’t have any confidence in myself. All I knew was how to

be a mom and a wife. Sure, I had some computer knowledge, but being home for 10 years, I was a bit rusty.” A lesson learned In her interview, Filo talked about “the mistake”she made in not completing her high school education back in 1995. Midway through her senior year, she decided to drop out of Danvers High School to be with her future husband, who had two young daughters at the time. “I decided to raise his [children] and be a mom and a wife,” she recalled. Filo eventually had three of her own children with her hus-

band. They have a 19-year-old son who dropped out of school, a 15-year-old son who will be going into his sophomore year at Saugus High School in the fall and a nine-year-old daughter who will be going into the fourth grade at the Waybright Elementary School. As the years passed, getting her high school diploma continued to be a dream that kept slipping away. “I just never got to do it,” Filo said. “Eventually, I was forced into doing it – and happy I was,” she said. She noted that a requirement of receiving Transitional Assistance is to enroll in an educational program or spend 20 hours of the week in job search


and assistance training. So, last December, Filo signed up for classes with CCN and set out to get her diploma when classes began in January. “The confidence is the biggest thing I’ve gotten out of it. I feel more confident when applying for a job,” said Filo, who has been sending out several resumes a day. Filo has also become more outspoken on the need for every child to get an education. “I tell the kids all the time – my kids and their friends – nothing else matters but getting that high school diploma. I would have gone onto college and all that great stuff had I gotten one in the first place,” she said. She also has a message for

the adults who dropped out of school and figure there is nothing they could do to make up for the lost opportunity. “I felt alone and lost and I thought I was getting too old for anything,” Filo said. “But I’m not. Now I feel like I’m beginning a whole new life here with the same old people.” “I want other women in my situation to know it’s never too late. There were two women in my class who were older than me. My own mother – she got her GED at 50. So, I just want people to know there are places out there that can help you – places like Catholic Charities.” College and a career next?

An interview with Susan Dunn on her two-plus decades working in the Saugus Town Manager’s Office Editor’s Note: For this week’s interview, we sat down with longtime Chief Administrative Aide Susan Dunn in the second floor auditorium of Town Hall to talk about the highlights of working for 22 years under four different town managers and several acting and temporary managers. Dunn, a 1972 Saugus High School graduate and Saugus native, attended Marion Court Secretarial School with hopes of becoming an executive secretary. She later transferred to Salem State College for a year. She was going after a teaching degree in business before going to work for the Boston law firm of Tierney, St. Onge and Manoil. She worked there for several years before going to work for the Office of Children in Lynn. In 1976 she married Michael T. Dunn, a 1971 Saugus High School graduate. He is retired from Cardinal Health, where he was transportation director. They have two grown children and a daughter-in-law: Matthew and Patrick and Jenn. In the fall of 1995, Dunn began working for the town when Ed Collins was still town manager, but she worked for Richard Cardillo, who was then in charge of the town’s finances. Dunn fol-

lowed Cardillo when he became temporary town manager and later town manager. Dunn continued to be chief administrative aide to Town Managers Steven Angelo, Andrew Bisignani and Scott Crabtree. Some highlights of this week’s interview follow. Q: Okay, Susan. You’re leaving … tomorrow [Tuesday] is your last day? A: Yes. Q: As you look back on your career working for all of these town managers, what’s the most special recollection you have – your favorite memory of all, as you look back on your career? A: Sure. I would say each of the four town managers that I worked with had their own style. They had their own major projects and things to do, keeping the town moving forward. I would say, though, the last five years, working with Mr. Crabtree has been the most active and moving the town forward. They all did their part as far as keeping the town moving. But he has visions, he has places he wants the town to go, and I would say that it’s been the most active.

He


could get them to try to work with each other. He ended the CIP [Capital Improvements Program] Program. [Former Town Manager] Ed Collins started it. He [Cardillo] was his [Collins] financial person, so he knew that in and out. And he ended that. He finished the buildings, almost. The last one was Town Hall. And Steve Angelo finished Town Hall. And we had that grand opening, which was lovely. Steve, once again, he was compassionate about the town. I can say it no other way. He loves the town. And he worked very hard for that, in making things work. Andy, once again, did the same thing – worked hard. And Scott, I like to watch Scott go into a room and people aren’t quite sure. And when they leave that room, they’ll understand. And he can take a very difficult issue to try to understand …. Like to me, the biggest question – the hardest question a resident asks is why do we pay so much in taxes if we have Route 1? That’s a hard answer, because it encompasses a lot of things. And Scott Crabtree can answer it and a person would go out understanding it totally. Q: What is the one concern or question – the most prevalent you would get, working in your position for each of these men? What would be the one …? A: Like the resident issue? You know, we get several calls in the office in regards to resident issues. I think the hardest question, because it’s an emotion question or problem, would be with the cemetery. We do not get many of those. Our cemetery guys – and the assistant at the cemetery – they work very hard with the residents to make them happy, but that’s such an emotional time for residents. But I think those were hard issues, because someone came in and they had a problem with their father’s grave or their mother’s grave. You know what I mean? So, those were hard questions, and you have to have so much compassion for them.


But then we would get ‘When is the street going to be swept?’ There are a million questions that come in, and you just have to learn how to send them to the appropriate person to get the question answered. Q: What’s the most unusual request you have received? A: Ooh. Q: Unusual or funny? Something that sort of sticks out? A: It’s pretty pathetic, but I can’t even think of one. I’ll have to come back to that one. I can’t think of one, off the top of my head. Q: Well, something that has you scratching your head and asking“What are they thinking?” A: Well, sometimes they call the Town Manager’s Office and ask,“Why isn’t trash being picked up?” But it’s because you are going to go to the top. If you have a question and you don’t know where to go, I’ll go to the top. And they’ll send me. And that’s what happens most of the time. Q: As you look back, what’s the toughest task or request you had in your position? A: I think one of the hardest tasks … the cemetery ones, when people are upset and there are issues like not knowing where somebody is buried, and the guys have to find that out and prove it to them. Those are hard, because that’s all emotional. And during my time period that was under Andrew Bisignani, we lost Scott Procopio over in the Middle East [Marine Cpl. Scott Procopio, who was killed in action April 2, 2006 while serving in Operation Iraqi Freedom]. And that was a terrible, hard time, emotionally, for the town, for everybody. I worked with his [Procopio’s] wife. She worked in my office for a while, and she worked in the clerk’s office. And they were young. He was in his early 20s. To watch the family and be a part of that – because they had the funeral at the Veterans [Memorial Elementary] School, and then we all marched

ASKS | from page 8 to the cemetery. That was probably, I would say, the most difficult time. Not as far as difficulty in solving a problem, but emotionally difficult and watching everyone having to go through that. That was a difficult part of the job. Q: Pretty draining, I can imag-

ine. A: Yes. Oh yeah, it was. I felt so bad for the family. And that Monday, it was announced and Mr. Procopio stood on the front lawn and announced to the reporters – my heart broke. Oh, my God, but that was difficult. But, other than that … Q: What would be the most challenging? … I guess challenging would be the word …

A: As far as work issues? Q: Yes. Is there like one assignment that you had that sticks out above the rest? A: I remember the assignment of – Mr. Cardillo gave this to me – and when we moved from Town Hall and we went down to the Annex … so all of Town Hall … all of the offices … had to be moved down to the Annex Building where the Conservation [Commission] is now and Retirement. We moved all of the desks, all of the people. I had to make a plan as to where all of the desks were going to go. I’m not an architect. I had no idea. I couldn’t even tell you about square footage. You know what I mean. You know when they go into a room and they say, “Oh, this room is 1,000 square feet” – that’s not even on my radar. And, he [Cardillo] says, “All right, you’ll figure that out. You figure where everybody’s going to sit.” That wasn’t the hard problem. It was bringing everybody’s files. And there were all steps to the process. But I remember telling everyone “You can’t bring all of your files. You have to archive some …. Archive the ones that are very old.” Fran Trainor was in purchasing at the time; she was the purchasing assistant. And we developed a plan to put all of the files in the basement of that Annex. Oh, it was like torture. And then the movers bringing them … We would have to go down and show them, okay, “All of the Planning files have to go here. All of Conservation’s files have to go here.”That was a task. And you know, I don’t think a picture was taken of that. That was like, oh, my gosh. And seeing everybody that’s here in that small building over there … and we stayed there for about a year, and then we moved back. There was a reward to that. Because we had a historical designer, Mau-

reen. And she worked regarding the painting inside and developing it all. And I remember one afternoon, it had to be like early spring, and we had a meeting at what is now the Procopio Building down there, and all the town employees came in that worked that day, and the historical designer had boards with the three levels of Town Hall. This level, the middle level and the lower level. And the color charts, because there are five basic colors in the building. This is the darkest color you will see up here [the second floor auditorium]. The middle is a little lighter and the bottom is a lot lighter. And in the bottom level, you can really see the yellow come out. She designed the rug, that when you walk into Town Hall. I don’t know who makes the rug – the Saugus Town Hall rug. She designed it off of it. When you go downstairs on the first floor and you look at the light fixtures, the outside on the ceiling has the molding. She took that molding, and that’s how she developed the rug. So, these big things [boards] had all of the colors and the employees were making faces – “My God, that rug is too busy, it’s ugly. Oh, that’s gross.” And I said, “No, no, no. Wait, it’s going to be beautiful. Wait til you see it.” And I was able to come in and sometimes see the progress, which to me was astounding. Do you remember it? Saugus Town Hall blue? The inside of this building was disgusting. The first Friday that we allowed them to come back into the building and start bringing their stuff back, I stood downstairs when the people came in – the employees – and their mouths would drop. They would walk through that front door and get through that second set of doors and they couldn’t believe it. And to see that, I was so thrilled, because I said, “Oh! They like it!” Because it is beautiful. This is a beautiful, beautiful building. And I feel that one of my jobs, since I came here, was to protect the building and make sure that nobody puts tape on the walls or puts stuff up and ruins it, because it’s too beautiful. But to see them come back through that building and see that they’re amazed, it was a good feeling. … The night that

we had the grand opening here, I went up to her and said, “In a previous life, you lived in this town because you have done this building an enormous justice. It’s just gorgeous.” It was lovely. That was fun. I loved that whole project. From its conception … from moving everybody over there [the annex] and then coming back and getting everybody settled. Even now, if things have to change, it has to be run through our office first. If you bring something in, you have to get the manager’s office approval for that, so that we all stay on the same level. It’s important. Q: What’s the most fun part of your job? A: The most fun part of my job? Q: The festivities? I got to send you the picture of you and Charlie Naso [The retired school administrator who played Santa Claus at the town’s Annual Christmas Tree Lighting and Festivities last December.] It looked like you were having a great time. A: Oh yeah, where I was sitting in Santa’s lap. Oh yes, I loved all of that, and also Founders Day and the Christmas Stroll. We started that … All of those events are fun. They are fun. And, I would say, working with all of the town employees. I love them. They are good people. They work hard and there’s not enough of them to do their jobs, and they do a real good job. I have a fun time with all of them. And all of the ones who are retired and who have moved on – all of those friendships, that’s great. Q: How many people work in the building [Town Hall] now? A: In Town Hall? It varies. Probably between 26 and 28 people, I’d say, in here, and then you have all of the different satellite buildings, so there are a lot of people. There really is. Q: I guess an important part of your role would be as the point person or the liaison for the town manager to all of these people. A: Exactly. That is my role, because department heads will come in and employees come in and I have to help them. If they have a question – “How do you

ASKS | from page 10 think he’s going to view this?” – my job is to say, “Okay, you have a great plan, and now you have to present that plan to him and make him,” no matter who “him” was out of the four of them,“You have to figure out how to get him to understand what you’re going to do.” And if they come in and they don’t have an answer, I say, “Go back until you have an answer … and when you have an answer, we’ll move on and I’ll show you how to do it.” And I’ve had a great relationship and have had great relationships with all of the people. Q: What are you going to miss the most? A: I think, dealing with everybody. And you do get satisfaction when you make a resident happy. They may not love every answer, but as long as you can make them understand, that’s good. That’s good. Q: Yes, I remember last year, the gentleman – Mr. Perry – all of the correspondence he had with Town Hall over the years about flooding problems on his property A: Yes, I felt so bad for him. Q: But, finally a resolution … A: Yes, it’s coming. You know, it’s a process. It’s going to be some time to make it happen. But, oh dear Lord, I felt so bad for him. That was a tough, tough situation. But, he’s getting there, slow, but sure. That’s what I mean. At the beginning, it was very hard. When everybody was

turning their backs – “Nah, we can’t do that”– to have the Town Manager and the department head [DPW director] sit down and come up with something to help someone, that’s rewarding when you see that. And Mr. Perry is a good one [example]. Q: Yes, about five decades of problems that he was trying to get the town to resolve …. A: Yes, pumping sewage out of your basement, it’s like, oh my God. But, we’re getting there, thank God. You should do a huge article on him [Perry]. Q: Yes, I did. I spent a lot of time with him. First, he didn’t want to talk, but then I told him, “You talked to selectmen, so you already went public on it.” So, we sat down and he showed me his backyard and things he had done to minimize the flooding on his property, and he showed me the many years of correspondence with the town. I could tell – the night that Town Meeting passed a warrant article that would help him, he was beaming. He came up to me and thanked me for the articles I wrote, and he was also happy with what the town manager had done to help him. A: To go forward. Right. Q: You know, Scott [Crabtree] hooked into it right away and tried to help him out, and it wasn’t just lip service. A: Yes. His [Crabtree’s] education and his experience – first being a police officer and then being an attorney, it works very well in that position, because Scott is able to think outside the

box. And when you can think outside the box and you get other people to start thinking about it, that’s when you come up with a solution. Q: So, do you have plans after Town Hall? Are you just going to enjoy your retirement? A: Yes. It’s a busy, busy office and it’s time for me to step away. And Christine [Moreschi] is the perfect individual for that position right now. She has a lot of my same ways. It’s funny, but it works, so it’s going to be fine. Q: And she benefited from working several months with you. A: Yes. She’s been here since March, so it’s amazing. It’s still going to take her at least a year … at least … because the job is very cyclical; different things come up at different times of the year. But at least she went through this segment of a little bit of the end of the budget and preparing it, then working it through Town Meeting, and then now, into the summer. So, it’s going to be fine. It will work well for her; she will be good in that position. Q: Any advice that you offer her? A: Mr. Vasapoli [Longtime Town Counsel John Vasapoli, a former temporary town manager] gave me this years ago. I don’t know why it came up or where it came from, but he said to me, “Susan, your job is to bring the issue to the town manager. Get all of the information you can

“A great advocate for our community” Town Manager Crabtree lauds longtime public service of Chief Administrative Aide Susan Dunn, who retired this week after 22 years Editor’s Note: Town Manager Scott C. Crabtree issued this statement on the retirement of longtime Chief Administrative Aide Susan Dunn: “Susan’s contribution to the Town over the past 22 years, particularly the last five and a half years in the Manager’s office, has played an enormous

role in the positive transformation the Town has undergone under this administration. Many of the Town’s initiatives wouldn’t be possible without her hard work, dedication, and commitment to these changes and the community. “She has been of great counsel to me on many issues. Her sup-

port and friendship has been a tremendous benefit to me and my success, as well as the Town’s. The residents of Saugus should be grateful for all that she has done for the Town. She truly has made the transitions and challenges a much easier road to travel. “The Manager’s office and the Town Hall will not be the same without her. She will be sorely missed. She is much more than an employee; she is a great advocate for our community and she is a dear friend.”

and you bring that information to the town manager and you give it to them. And it’s their job to make it happen. You can help them and facilitate things for them. But that’s the most important thing.” That’s what he told me. Q: Anything else that you would like to share that we haven’t covered? A: Not that I can think of. I’ll miss all of the people that I work with, but it’s time. It’s time for someone with a little bit more energy. Q: You could probably write a book on everything you have observed over the years. A: I remember years ago, one of the labor attorneys used to say that to me. And I’d say, “Oh God, I don’t even want to go down that road.” You don’t realize how much knowledge you have until somebody brings up a subject and then you start talking and it comes. And I think,

“Oh, I forgot about that.” There’s a million things in my brain that could come out in a book, but who the heck would want to read that book? Q: But then again, you got to consider the body politic of Saugus! It can be tough! A: Exactly. I mean that was funny because the same labor attorney – his name was Norman Holtz – when Steve Angelo was coming in as the new town manager, I said I was nervous about that. And Norman said, “Why are you nervous?” And I said, “Because I’m not under contract. I’m not in the union, because of where I sit.” And he said, “Susan, you know where the bodies are buried.” And he said, “Don’t worry about that … You have so much knowledge. Why would they let you go? You can give them your years of knowledge up to that point.” And at that point, that wasn’t a whole lot of years. But he [Holtz] was funny – “You know where the bodies are buried” – no, I don’t know where the bodies

are buried. Q: So, you really never had an issue with job security all of the time, with all of the transition in town managers? A: They could have gotten rid of me at any time. They really could have because, like I said, I’m not under contract and I can’t be in the union, but I just kept going. Q: That was because of your expertise and institutional knowledge. A: Yes. Exactly. And I think that’s what Norman [Holtz] was saying to me at the time. “You know, Susan, why would they start over with someone who doesn’t know the job?” The fact that I was born and raised in this town and I know the majority of the people, and I understand that at the time that I came here, I didn’t understand politics. But you learn quickly, and you know how it goes. And he [Holtz] said, “You’ll be fine. Don’t worry.” And he was right. I went through four of them. It worked. And now it’s time to move on.

Beltone finds new home on Route 1 By Mark E. Vogler


eltone Hearing Aids Center in Saugus celebrated a Grand Opening yesterday with a ribbon-cutting ceremony at its new location, 171 Broadway in the For Eyes Plaza (Route 1 South). “We look forward to serving the public with a truly committed staff and the highest quality of care in hearing health,” said Brian Snowden, Beltone New England’s Owner and President, who joined local staff at the event. “This new hearing care facility is one of the most advanced in the region with state-of-theart testing equipment. Beltone is excited to provide the very best in hearing care to the Saugus Community,”Snowden said. Beltone, which has been in Saugus for about five years, relocated recently from space it rented in Sears at the Square One Mall. The company provides hearing evaluations and dispenses hearing aids. The relocation is part of an overall effort to get closer to the community, according to the Saugus location’s Hearing Instrument Specialist, Anita McGrory, BC-HIS, MS in Audiology. “We’re also looking to set up a free evaluation for the town employees of Saugus,”McGrory said. “I do a lot of hearing health seminars to promote hearing and hearing health. Taking care of your hearing is very impor-

tant. If you don’t, it can contribute to memory loss and eventually lead to Alzheimer’s and dementia if not treated,” McGrory said. The Danvers resident received her master’s degree in audiology from the University of Rhode Island. Also in attendance from Beltone New England yesterday were Mary Sparks, Patient Care Coordinator; and Susan Champagne, Operations Manager/Ex-

ecutive Assistant to Michael Andreozzi/Brian Snowden. “Hearing is a sense many of us take for granted until it begins to slip away,” according to Snowden. “Hearing well is important to being happy, and allows us to stay connected to the people, activities and sounds we love. Prioritizing hearing health is more important than ever as millions of Americans suf-

fer from some form of hearing loss,” he said. People can schedule a hearing screening and learn about the warning signs of hearing loss, Beltone’s testing process, the latest technology and much more by calling Beltone at 978774-6363, or visiting the new location. Beltone New England is part of the largest Beltone distributor in the country with more than 48

locations in six states. The company’s offices are equipped with the latest state-of-the-art testing equipment to ensure accuracy of all their testing procedures. Their team of Hearing Instrument Specialists and Audiologists are continually trained in new technology and service techniques, allowing them to offer continual, reliable care to their patients.

A summertime decision Selectmen will consider proposal for an entertainment center on the second floor of Sears Square One Mall By Mark E. Vogler


augus will get its own bowling alley if the town approves a $9 million entertainment center that a California amusement store chain (of a Japanese parent company) has proposed for Sears Square One Mall. Selectmen were scheduled to hold two public hearings at Wednesday night’s meeting on requests by Round One Entertainment Inc., doing business as Round 1 Bowling & Amusement. But Round 1 representatives requested a continuance to the board’s August 16 meeting. If the hearings are held that night, selectmen could vote on: • A Special Permit (S-2) to allow a place of amusement to be located on the second floor of the Sears building at 1325 Broadway. • The transfer of a Beer & Wine Common Victualer’s License from Mallqui Food Services, Inc., doing business as Avatar at 184 Broadway to 1325 Broad-

way. This request also includes a change of manager to Shintaro Kajil. The application also includes requests for an entertainment license and a license for coin-operated devices. Besides featuring 14 lanes for tenpin bowling – something not currently available to bowling enthusiasts who live in town – plans for the entertainment center include 300 arcade games, eight billiard tables, four separate karaoke rooms, dart machines, two ping-pong tables, a dining area, a bar area that serves beer and wine, and piped-in music. Shawn Butler, director of business development for Brunswick Bowling & Billiards of Muskegon, Michigan, and Matthew McDonnell, vice president of development for Seritage Growth Properties of New York City, attended Wednesday night’s meeting as representatives for Round 1. But they didn’t discuss details of the project after receiving approval for continuance of the two public hearings.

They requested a continuance on public hearings on Round 1 Bowling & Amusements, a proposed entertainment center, until next month. (Saugus Advocate photo by Mark E. Vogler)

Selectmen allowed residents to offer public comment on the project. Town Meeting Member William S. Brown of Precinct 6 said he has already received calls from residents who have concerns about the project.

“This is going to be an establishment that has video machines – the type of machines that entice kids,” Brown told the board. Brown noted that while the mall closes at 10, there is no direct access from the second floor

of Sears to the outside parking lots. “There are a number of concerns I’d like the board to look at very closely … I’d like to see all the concerns addressed,” Brown said. Two other residents expressed misgivings about the project. Board of Selectmen Chairman Debra Panetta said the board “has the same concerns,” but added that members would refrain from questions until Round 1 makes its presentation at the next meeting. Selectman Jeff Cicolini said he opposes Round 1’s plans to close the center at 2 a.m. “I don’t think it’s warranted,”Cicolini said, suggesting that there needs to be an earlier closing. Traffic control and mall access were other issues that Cicolini said he has concerns about. If the project is approved, Saugus will become the second Massachusetts community to have a Round 1 Bowling & Amusement Center. The Silver City Galleria mall in Taunton has had a center for two years.

Historical Commission honors Wheelabrator for longstanding support of Round Hill restoration

By Mark Vogler


ere are a few tidbits that you might want to know about this week in Saugus.

A Minuteman I recognized. Even with the threat of thunderstorms washing out Wednesday’s great event at the Saugus Iron Works National Historic Site, the event turned out to be a huge success. And so it was that the Lexington Minutemen got to fire off their muskets to end the day with a boom -- not the kind that comes with bad weather. While I was snapping away photos of the re-enactors who were dressed up like members of a Massachusetts militia, I started staring at Alex Cain, one of the group’s leaders. And he kept staring back at me. I know that Minuteman! In fact, I worked with him more than a decade ago when I was writing stories on auto insurance fraud for The Eagle-Tribune and he was prosecuting some of the folks I was writing about. I also covered a number of interesting court cases that Alex was handling for the Essex County District Attorney’s Office. Well, as soon the Lexington Minutemen completed their musket firing demonstration, I caught up with Alex in the field behind the Saugus Iron Works Museum. It’s been more than a decade since our paths crossed. And this time, it was at the scene of a re-enactors demonstration -- not in a courtroom or at the newspaper office.

Board of Health still “in a holding pattern” over Wheelabrator, Heffernan says By Mark E. Vogler


he state Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) continues to review Wheelabrator Technologies, Inc.’s application to expand its ash landfill at the site of its trash-to-energy incinerator at Route 107. But it may be several months before town residents have a chance to share their concerns at a public hearing that is expected to be set for later this year. “It may be October or November before we hear anything,” Board of Health Chair William Heffernan said at Monday’s meeting. “All we have been told is that the state had some questions

and [Wheelabrator], they’re addressing those questions,” Heffernan said. There will be a question and answer session set up by DEP at some point, which will be open to the public, according to Heffernan. “They [DEP] are looking for a large venue … They are expecting it be well attended,” Heffernan said. The hearing would be similar to one hosted outside at Wheelabrator’s plant site last year. After reviewing oral and written testimony from several hundred people, the state Executive Office of Environmental Affairs ruled last August that the company wouldn’t be required to have an Environ-

Mom’s Cancer Fighting Angels to host fundraiser July 16

mental Impact Report (EIR). The agency’s Assistant Secretary, Deirdre Buckley, also advised in the 14-page certificate issued under the Massachusetts Environmental Policy Act (MEPA) that she doesn’t believe a review by the Board of Health is necessary. She noted that a majority of comments received requested that she require Wheelabrator to “obtain a modification to the existing Site Assignment from the Board of Health to provide additional opportunity for public review and input.” Buckley has no authority to order a review by the Saugus Board of Health, which has already requested Wheelabrator to file an application for a mod-

ification of its site assignment. The board threatened a lawsuit to force Wheelabrator to comply with its request. Wheelabrator Technologies, Inc. filed applications for two permits from DEP in late April – one that would allow the company to modify the ash landfill near its trash-to-energy plant on Route 107 in Saugus. The company filed a second application for a permit to transport ash offsite in case the currently approved volume is used before its modification project can be approved. The project would add five years of life and about 520,000 tons of ash and cover soil to the ash landfill, which has been the subject of vocal opposition

by town officials – including the Board of Selectmen, Town Meeting members and the Board of Health – since Wheelabrator announced its plans more than a year ago. “I wish I had more information. But information is at a slow trickle … as we are in a holding pattern,” Heffernan said. The public can learn about Wheelabrator’s project and offer comments by going to DEP’s special webpage, http:// massdep/about/contacts/wsi. html. DEP will review public comments and Wheelabrator’s application in addition to testimony at the future public hearing to be held in Saugus.

9 steps to be your healthiest

By Anna Tourkakis, Nutritionist


ontrary to some articles that tout a special diet practically for each body part, In general a healthy diet is beneficial for the whole body. The following basic guidelines for healthy eating hold true for most individuals at any age. The difference among individual diets depends on personal characteristics of height, physical activity, age and gender. A basic healthy diet that relies on vegetables, fruits, wholegrains, lean meats, low fat dairy and some healthy fats meets the nutritional requirements of most individuals.Making meals and snacks from a combination of these foods and eating an amount that maintains your healthy weight is key to a healthy eating pattern. Steps to follow The following 9 steps can help you figure out your best approach for eating your healthiest way. Saturated fat intake should be less than 10 percent of calories. Limit red meat to no more than 18 ounces cooked per week. Three ounces is a typi-

cal serving. Total fat intake should be less than 35 percent of calories. The American Heart Association stresses that the reduction should be from saturated fats. Limit added fats to no more than two tablespoons per day. Total fat intake takes into account invisible fat found in baked goods and other foods. As well as fats such as butter, cream, sour cream etc.. Cholesterol intake should not exceed 300 milligrams per day. Cholesterol is not just found in eggs and shellfish – it is found in any animal products. Protein intake should be approximately 15 percent of calories. In theory protein should be consumed only to provide the body with adequate amino acids needed for growth and repair of body structures and function. Carbohydrate intake should make up 50-60 percent of calories.Again in theory, carbohydrates should be the source for energy or calories to keep the body metabolism working at a healthy rate.Whole grains and starchy vegetables being the main source in this group. Sodium intake should be reduced to approximately one teaspoon per day. Doing more home cooking and relying less on prepared foods and eating

out is a good way to decrease sodium. If Alcoholic beverages are consumed, they should be limited to about one serving per day for women and two for men. Total calories should be sufficient to maintain the individuals best body weight. Balance your calorie intake with your activity level. A wide variety of food should be consumed. This helps ensure that nutrient needs are better met, as foods contain a mix of different nutrients and in various amounts. These simple 9 guidelines provide a realistic outline to accommodate individual nutrient needs and personal preferences. This makes eating your healthiest an achievable and sustainable goal.

If you were not into Boston sports in the early 60s you probably never heard of Gene Conley. He is the only professional athlete to play for Major League Baseball and National Basketball Association Championship teams. In April of 1961 he was with the Boston Celtics as they won the NBA Championship, and he put away his Celtics number 17 jersey and put on his number 18 Red Sox jersey to pitch a game against the Washington Senators. He tossed 8 scoreless innings for the win as the Sox crushed the Senators, 6-1. He made his mark as a member of the 1959, 60 and 61 Celtics as they won three consecutive NBA World Championships. He pitched as a member of the Milwaukee Braves who won the World Series in the 1957 season. Donald Eugene Conley was born November 10, 1930, in Muskogee, Oklahoma, and died July 4, 2017, in Foxborough, Mass. While still a youngster his family moved to Richland, Washington, and in Richland High School he played multiple sports, was named to the AllState teams in baseball and basketball and was the State Champion in the high jump. Gene went on to Washington State University, and in 1950 his Cougar team got into the College World Series. For his basketball talent he was selected twice to honorable mention for the AllAmerican Team. He also was a first team selection for the AllPac 10 all-star team. His professional career started in 1952, pitching for the Boston Braves at 21 years of age. After the baseball season ended he became a Boston Celtic. He

played in 39 games for the Celtics that year with 35 two-pointers in field goals (three pointers did not exist at the time) and 18 foul shots for 88 points. His baseball career started in 1952 with the Boston Braves, who became the Milwaukee Braves in 1954, and he pitched for the Braves through the 1958 season. Traded to the Philadelphia Phillies he pitched there during the 59 and 60 seasons. In 1961 he was traded to the Red Sox and he finished his baseball career in 1963. He was a three time all-star while in Milwaukee and was the winning pitcher in the 1955 AllStar game. He had a 91–96 record as a MLB pitcher, with a 3.82 ERA during his 11 MLB seasons. Conley’s basketball career spanned six seasons between 1952-1953 and 1963-1964. He ended his career with the New York Knicks for the last two seasons. Over 351 games he scored 1,666 points with a field goal percentage of .324 and 403 foul shots with a percentage of .657. Gene Conley will be remembered as a gentleman and athlete during his professional career who contributed to championship teams in high school, college, Major League Baseball and the National Basketball Association.

Historical happenings on Round Hill The Saugus Historical Commission has set out an informative pamphlet at Town Hall, reporting the progress of the Round Hill Historical site, which sets behind the Public Safety Building on Hamilton Street. A formal dedication of the site is expected in September. The ceremony will include burial of the time capsule created during the 2015 anniversary celebration. The brochure describes Round Hill as “Part of a highly significant Native American Cluster,” noting that Native Americans gathered stone from the ledge of jasper at the foot of Round Hill for tools. “As we near the realization of this collaboration with a variety of individuals and groups, we look forward to a site where the general public will be able to visit, attend events and share in the proud history of Round Hill,” the brochure noted. “The area’s extensive history, culture and natural resources will be preserved for future generations. The results of this partnership will be an amazing picture of our past being created in-situ through the preservation of the Round Hill Historic Site,” it continued.
