A day of appreciation

A Mother’s Mission

Saugus honors its veterans and active military people with the biggest local salute of its kind at World Series Park

Marlene Taraskiewicz keeps the memory of her daughter Susan alive 25 years after her brutal murder

SEEKING JUSTICE FOR SUSAN: Marlene Taraskiewicz in the living room of her Peabody home this week, reflecting on the 25th anniversary of her daughter Susan Taraskiewicz’s murder. (Saugus Advocate Photo by Mark E. Vogler) FOR HELPING HOMELESS VETS: During last Saturday’s Veterans/Military Appreciation Day at World Series Park, Julie Liuzza, a sixth grader at Lynnhurst Elementary School, received a commendation from the Massachusetts House of Representatives, recognizing her “dedication, generosity and hard work on behalf of needy and homeless veterans.” State Rep. Donald Wong (R-Saugus, left) presented the commendation to Julie, who was also joined by U.S. Army veteran Frederick “Pat” Walor, 94, of Dracut, one of the honored guests attending the day-long event that drew close to 300 veterans. Walor, a Purple Heart and Bronze Star recipient, was wounded in France after the Normandy Invasion. See more photo highlights inside on pages 12 & 13. (Saugus Advocate photo by Mark E. Vogler)

.S. Navy veteran Maurice DiBlasi said he has never experienced the kind of public gratitude he received last Saturday at World Series Park. “This is wonderful,” said DiBlasi, 97, as he enjoyed a lunch with his family and the camaraderie with close to 300 veterans who were honored at a Veterans/

Military Appreciation Day. “It’s great to see them take care of our fighting soldiers and sailors like this. In all the years since I got out of the service, I never got anything like this,” said the Saugus resident who appeared to be the oldest of all veterans on hand for the day-long program. DiBlasi was a boatswain’s mate second class serving on

the U.S.S. Hugh L. Scott transport ship when it was hit by two torpedoes while unloading supplies in November 1942, during the invasion of North Africa. DiBlasi said he expected to die in the water after abandoning. But he survived and has managed to outlive all of his buddies, he said.

U.S. Army World War II veteran Frederick “Pat” Walor, 94, of Dracut, was one of the honored guests invited to the event by its organizer – World Series Park Superintendent Bob Davis. Walor – a Purple Heart recipient who also earned the Bronze Star – was a favorite subject of people who wanted to take photographs of old soldiers at the event. “It’s great that they’re thinking about us,” said Walor, a private first class in the Ninth Infantry Division who was

wounded in France after the the Normandy Invasion. “I’ve never seen anything like this. This is a very good thing they’re doing for the vets here,” he said. “Setting a good example” Many of the veterans – from more contemporary military conflicts up through the Vietnam and Korean Wars – said the Veterans/Military Appreciation Day was the biggest salute of its kind that they could

recall being hosted by Saugus. The event was free and sponsored by Wheelabrator Technologies Inc. of Saugus, which had special commemorative coins made that celebrated the five branches of the service and were distributed to each of the veterans and military people who attended. State Department of Veterans Services Director Francisco A. Ureña, an informal visitor to the park last Saturday, commending Saugus “for setting a good example for other cities and towns to emulate.” “Events like this help bring

a community closer together. There are family connections. This is something that makes Small Town America great,” he said. Saugus Veterans Council Commander Steve Castinetti said he agreed that the gathering at World Series Park was probably the biggest “thank you” the town’s veterans and military people have received in recent memory. “I think it’s awesome,” Castinetti said. “I grew up in the military during Vietnam, and we didn’t get this type of respect when we came home. What a great crowd today,” said Castinetti, a retired Navy captain. “I want to put an emphasis on all the great work put in today by Bob Davis – 100 percent of the credit is due him.” School Committee Member Arthur Grabowski, a U.S. Army veteran who served in Vietnam as a sergeant in military intelligence, said he can’t remember any special recognition that his fellow veterans received after returning from Vietnam. “I think this is the only one I’ve ever been to,” Grabowski said. “And it is so great seeing so many people come out. What makes this special is that you get to hear these stories that not too many real live people get to experience,” he said, referring to the World War II veterans who appeared. “Usually, we experience it through books and movies. But today, you get to hear it from somebody who was there in World War II,” he said.

Saugus) said he is glad to see the community show its appreciation to the Vietnam War veterans – “The veterans who came home and were not welcome.” “It’s a special honor to be here and see the veterans getting the special recognition they deserve … If it wasn’t for the veterans, we might be saluting different flags,” Wong said. The event was so special that Saugus native Richard Long and his wife, Norma (Couillard), drove 12 hours from their home in Lexington Park, Maryland, to participate. Long, a 1965 Saugus High School graduate and a U.S. Air Force veteran who launched F-4 bombers in Vietnam, recalled getting an Air Force commendation for saving an aircraft that could have crashed. “The pilot got really mad at me because I downed him,” Long said, recalling the malfunction he spotted. “I told him that you are not going to go anywhere because you’ll burn up if I let you go,” he said. Sophia Hennessey, a special education teacher at the Belmonte Middle School, said she made a special trip to the Veterans/Military Appreciation Day to see her friend – Kimberly Tobey, a longtime custodian and crossing guard for Saugus Public Schools – sing “The Ballad of the Green Berets.” Hennessey is the proud mother of two sons – George and Joseph – who are Green Berets. “They graduated from Lynnfield High School and enlisted in the Army at 25 … I’m so proud Special recognition for of them, and I’m so touched the Vietnam Vets when I hear that song,” HenState Rep. Donald Wong (R- nessey said.

Regulations rejected State Attorney General invalidates articles passed by Special Town Meeting to place restrictions on Wheelabrator’s ash landfill By Mark E. Vogler

T

he state Attorney General’s Office this week advised the town that it had rejected three articles passed at a Special Town Meeting earlier this year which attempted to place new restrictions on Wheelabrator Technologies Inc.’s ash landfill. “We write to notify you that we are required by state law to disapprove Articles 1, 2 and 3 from the Saugus Special Town Meeting of February 6, 2017 (seeking to regulate ‘Ash Landfills’) because of procedural defects in the hearing process and because the Articles conflict with state law,” Attorney General Maura Healey said in a six-page opinion addressed to Town Clerk Ellen J. Schena. “Specifically, towns are not authorized to place land use restrictions on landfills and ash landfills that interfere with the broad regulatory authority of the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (MassDEP),” Healey wrote. “We emphasize that our disapproval of the Articles in no way implies any position on the pol-

icy views that led to the passage of the by-law amendments. The Attorney General’s limited standard of review requires her to approve or disapprove by-laws based solely on their consistency with state and federal law, not on any policy views she may have on the subject matter or wisdom of the by-law,” she continued. Healey’s decision, which was posted on the bulletin board inside Town Hall on Monday, essentially invalidated three warrant articles that received overwhelming support from the 50-member Town Meeting body. The zoning by-laws were specifically designed to curb expan-

sion of Wheelabrator’s ash landfill at its trash-to-energy plant on Route 107 and toughen local regulations on future ash landfills that could be located in town: • The major change in the proposals would limit the maximum permissible height of existing landfills or ash landfills to 50 feet above the mean sea level. • Another key change would prohibit new Landfill or new Ash Landfill being established in or adjacent to an Area of Critical Environmental Concern and would also bar an existing landfill or Ash landfill from being expanded in or adjacent to an Area of

~THE ADVOCATE ASKS~

Tom Traverse, chairman of the Town Manager’s Economic Development Committee, talks about Route 1 – what he calls “The Billion Dollar Turnpike” Editor’s Note: For this week, we sat down with Tom Traverse, who chairs the Town Manager’s Economic Development Committee, and asked him to share some of his views on economic development as it relates to Route 1. Traverse, 62, is a lifelong Saugus resident. He has been a member of the Economic Development Committee for four years – the last two as its chair. He has also been a member of the town’s Board of Appeals for 10 years and currently serves as its vice chairman. Traverse has been a member of the town’s Affordable Housing Trust for eight years – the past year as its chairman. Also, he served two terms as a member of Town Meeting. He is a 1973 Saugus High School graduate and received a Bachelor of Arts degree in History and Political Science from Salem State College in 1983, graduating with Cum Laude honors. He has been a mortgage banker for 30 years. Traverse and his wife, Pamela, have been married for more than three decades. They have two married daughters and four grandchildren. Some highlights of the interview follow. Q: Okay, Tom, what is your role as the chairman of the Town Manager’s Economic Development Committee and what’s the mission of this group? A: The mission is to promote – as it says – economic development in Saugus. But it can be new zoning that will facilitate that development. Often, it’s taking the ideas of these developments and working on getting the zoning changes, but it’s also getting it voted through Town Meeting and the various boards in this town.

Q: What are the committee’s top priorities and/or projects? A: Past accomplishments have been our work in rezoning: the overlay districts at the riverfront, the mill district and, most importantly, Route 1. Q: Right now, any current ones (priorities)? A: Once those districts were put into zoning, then we focus on the projects. Now the projects in those districts are coming to fruition, so were working on that. And I think a lot of those projects are self-evident, going up and down the highway or driving around town. … Starting with Route 1 – people see Essex Landing. They see what was the old Hilltop property [AvalonBay Communities, Inc.]. People have talked about Weylu’s coming forward. There are a half a dozen of these projects – not small, but very large projects – that are on the books. A lot of things can’t be talked about yet because they’re just in the feeling-out stage. Q: I would think Route 1 would draw the most interest from town residents, as that is a major economic engine for Saugus. As far as growth of the tax base. Right? A: Taxes are going up in every community. But if you take Saugus and compare it to surrounding communities, I don’t think there is one, as it sits right now, that’s comparable. People aren’t happy with their $4,000 tax bills, but if you go to our neighbors, it’s a $6,000 tax bill. Our taxes might not go lower, but with all this development – that’s what’s holding them down. When you talk about one project like Essex Landing, it could mean up to

several million dollars a year annually in taxes. I mean, we could run a school off of that development, practically. That’s the big thing. You always hear people say ‘With Route 1, we shouldn’t have to pay anything.’ Well, it’s not going to be that, but we can really hold it to a level we can work through. Saugus has the best taxes on the North Shore. Q: Economically speaking, what does Route 1 mean to the Town of Saugus? A: Well, when you think about it, when we get all of these projects done, you’ll have about a billion dollars’ worth of real estate out there. It’s the Billion Dollar Turnpike. And I think that’s what’s going to keep the taxes low. Q: So, you call it “The Billion Dollar Turnpike?” A: Yes. Q: What are the major projects that have taken place over the past year, projects that are in the works and projects that are on the drawing board? Feel free to elaborate on those areas. A: Well, in the works, of course, is Essex Landing. We can see that being built up every day. I believe the Hilltop is supposed to get started shortly. I was impressed with WoodSpring, the Extended Stay Hotel. When you first saw it going up, it looked like a lot of plywood there. But now you’re starting to see what it’s going to look like, and it looks impressive. But there are several large projects. There’s still a lot of land back there that people are looking at developing – that are large parcels. It’s also up to the Economic Development and the town to protect the neighborhoods behind Route 1. And

LOOKING AT ROUTE 1: Tom Traverse, chairman of the Town Manager’s Economic Development Committee, in an interview last week at the Hammersmith Family Restaurant in Saugus. He says future tax revenues generated from one major project along the town’s chief economic corridor could easily pay for the operation of a school. (Saugus Advocate Photos by Mark E. Vogler)

I think we’re doing a pretty good job at that. Q: What right now is the biggest of the big projects on your plate? A: The biggest things coming up for economic development right now – and are some things I can’t elaborate on, because they’re not actually finalized. But I see within the next couple of months, we’re going to move forward with economic development to vet some of these projects to get them from here to the Planning Board and Board of Appeals and Town Meeting and, hopefully, have them approved in the spring – to get them on board and to get them started. But until they have been announced, you can’t really say what they are, because things change. Q: As chair of this committee, what’s your vision for Route 1? What would you like to see happen on the town’s major economic corridor? A: Going a little bit off the topic – one of things that happened that started several years ago – the town manager had the foresight to bring on somebody like Robert Luongo, a professional, in planning and economic development as such. But Robert left for a better position in another community. Stephen Cole [planning and development director] and Krista Leahy [town planner] came in to replace him and to expound on him. And that’s made a big difference – to show that vision. They work with economic development and they are right there with us. Part of my job as chair is getting people involved and getting them there. And they’re [economic development is] doing the meat and potatoes of it. The planning involves those two. As far as my vision for Route 1 – the less big-box-type stores, the better, because those things

are just going away. I mean they talk about Amazon.com and stuff. I don’t know the retail numbers, but I guess with the storefronts, those numbers are so down. There are just too many people buying online. But, even right now, you see the extended stay motels. I’d like to see some more office buildings going in – medical buildings – more of that type of business. I don’t know much about manufacturing – but if it’s a small manufacturing building that’s not highway frontage, but back behind, something that might be a little less traffic volume. But as much as we’re all aggravated by the traffic, I don’t think that’s the end-all. Traffic has been bad on Route 1 forever. People were saying that when Walmart was going in, it was going to put Route 1 at a dead halt. We feel no effect from Walmart at all. I mean, have you ever waited there because people are going into Walmart? I never have in the years that it’s been open. The new Hilltop project? It’s not going to put out more cars onto the highway than the old Hilltop in its heyday, okay. Essex Landing, there is some work to be done on that roadway and they know that, with that turnaround to leave Essex Landing to get northbound. There’s some work to do there, but hopefully, the state is going to come in and work with us. The vision would be that, hopefully, the state is going to come in and work with us when they see this tax base. It’s more tax base for them, too. They’ve got to work a little with us. We’re going to need their assistance. But, you can’t have big stores/boxes anymore. Q: Realistically, what do you see happening over the next couple of years on Route 1?

ASKS | SEE PAGE 5


THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, September 22, 2017

ASK | from page 4 A: I see – when you see Essex Landing completed and when you see Hilltop completed, the extended stay hotel – I think the rest of Route 1 will fill in; whether it’s time for older strip malls to leave, whether it’s time for single level motels time to move on, I can see those growing into something that is more viable, more 21st Century than the 1950s. That’s what I’m hoping, anyway. Q: Do you see anything else, like a satellite college campus? A: That would be great, but I just don’t know if that’s in the works. At least, I haven’t heard anything along those lines. Even the vision of the new High School, which is right on Route 1 – which is unique – because the school is going to be where the athletic fields are now, and the athletic fields are going to be down where the school was. It’s going to make it visually look so much different and more integrated into Route 1. Q: People have been talking about the Route 1 traffic ever since I can remember, cloverleafs and all that. Do you have anything you can share on what you think could be done to improve the traffic situation? Or will it remain one of those ongoing annoyances? A: I think it’s going to be an ongoing annoyance for a long time. But I think by putting the right type of businesses in there that don’t add a lot on traffic volume are going to make a difference. I mean, when you have an apartment complex, most of those people are leaving in the morning and coming back in the evening. And they’re one-bedroom units. It’s not a huge retail thing where you have so many multiple entrances and exits. I think having that type of development is important to keeping the traffic level down somewhat. But, it’s not going to go away. When you leave Boston and you are going to Maine, how do you go? You go through Saugus. You don’t go up 93. This is the way out of Boston. When they called that Essex Landing, it was the truth. I mean, it’s the beginning of Essex County. How else do you get north? We just don’t

want all of those people driving through town. Hopefully, they’ll stop and use the Saugus businesses as often as they can. Q: I’m sure you are privy to a lot of information you can’t talk about, because it might impact potential projects adversely, but could you share some of your thoughts on some of the greatest economic plans or projects that never materialized along Route 1, now that those plans or projects are dead? Please elaborate. A: It’s disappointing when you see some businesses come into town that don’t make it that I think people put a lot of effort into. There’s always rumors about this happening, or that going on. But, in answer to your question, I can’t think of anything that was going to be a huge project that fell apart. To my knowledge, I haven’t seen that. Q: What do you see as the potential for Route 1 as it relates to Saugus? Do you see a thriving economic area that will one day lead to some relief for residential taxpayers? A: Relief might not be the right word, but I think it’s going to keep a lid on taxes. You just can’t expect that because we get a couple of huge projects that your taxes are going to go down. They’re just not going to go up. Taxes might go up 10 percent in Saugus instead of 30 or 40 percent someplace else. But it will keep a lid on things. Q: Do you see that as impacting the Square One Mall? A: I think the mall is in a transition itself. I think you are going to see the transition at the mall: some ongoing things, like they want to put in some type of entertainment. But it’s got to work with the community. Q: It looks like the current plans on that proposed entertainment center with the bowling appear in limbo. A: Yeah. I think that’s an evolution almost. The people in town want to make sure that it’s the right project for the town. With the liquor license and bowling and the games, I’m not sure that’s the right venue. But I think the mall itself, in order to survive, will try to get away from some retail and try to get some-

thing else to bring more people in there. And I think there’s a chance that something might be developed in their front parking lot where a high end restaurant might go in. I can see a few other good-size quality, upper scale restaurants coming to Route 1 in Saugus. Q: What about the Weylu’s property? A: Weylu’s is kind of just sitting there. We haven’t heard a lot about it for a while. We haven’t heard much at all on it. They seem to have their act together; they seem to be well-funded; but they’re not in a race. But I would think also, they have some holding costs. And they’ve got to start moving on it in the next few years or so, because things must be getting expensive for them. You’re also dealing with two communities there: Revere and Saugus. We just want to make sure the zoning on the two sides meshes together; like one is not allowing manufacturing and the other one has residential and right beside each other; so they have to kind of mesh. It’s got to be a joint effort by the two communities. Q: What’s likely to go in there? A: I think you are going to see plenty of apartment housing– type things and what you would expect: a retail restaurant. And it’s going to be big. It’s going to be very big. But, foremost again,

is protecting the neighborhoods behind there. Q: Please share some of your insight on how zoning changes in recent years – multiuse and other stuff – have worked out on Route 1.

Critical Environmental Concern • Another article would add three new definitions: for ash, landfill and ash landfill. • The final article would add a line on “Landfill/Ash Landfill” in the “Table of Use Regulations” within the zoning by-laws. Members of the Alliance for Health and Environment – the group that initiated the proposals – hailed the passage of the articles as a step in the right direction to protect the town.

Meanwhile, Wheelabrator officials threatened to file a lawsuit to invalidate the proposed regulations. James J. Connolly, vice president of Environmental, Health and Safety for Wheelabrator Technologies, called the warrant articles “unnecessary” and “counterproductive.” “Articles such as this have been attempted before,” Connolly said earlier this year, referring to amendments Town Meeting members passed in 2003, which the company chalAG confirms Wheelabrator’s lenged “because we were cerconcerns tain this amendment was out-

side the law.” “In 2005, the Massachusetts Land Court determined the amendment was unlawful,” Connolly said. “These proposed town meeting articles are just not going to help,”Connolly said. In the attorney general’s opinion issued this week, Healey confirmed Wheelabrator’s contention that existing case law contradicted the warrant articles passed at the Special Town Meeting. “As further explained below, our analysis is substantially influenced by the Land Court’s decision in Wheelabrator Land Resources, Inc., v. Town of Saugus, Misc. Case No.

Located Adjacent to Rite Aid Pharmacy

in Saugus Plaza, South Bound Route 1

309676 (Land Court September 26, 2005) (“Wheelabrator”) (attached as Exhibit A) holding that a similar Saugus by-law was null and void because it conflicted with, and was preempted by, state law,” Healey noted. Wheelabrator welcomed the attorney general’s decision, which is considered a significant setback by town officials and area environmental groups who have sought to prevent further expansion of the ash landfill. “Attorney General Healey’s decision will allow the state regulatory process to move forward based on what is the best environmental and economic solution for the town and the region,” Connolly said in a written statement. “Wheelabrator remains open to a dialog with the town about a long-term plan for Wheelabrator Saugus that will maintain and enhance our economic and environmental value to the community,” Connolly said. Wheelabrator opponents express disappointment Local advocates for blocking expansion of the ash landfill said they couldn’t understand the attorney general’s opinion. “This decision is very disappointing,” Board of Selectmen Chair Debra Panetta said in a statement this week. “Town Meeting was trying to protect the Saugus citizens. It doesn’t make sense that we, the Town of Saugus, can’t stop this facility from having ash piles growing higher than 50 feet.

39 acres of the landfill and to fill the last two stormwater collection valleys,” Panetta said. “Now, with this ruling, they will continue their quest to dump ash at a facility without groundwater monitoring, without liners, and without the protections that would be required in a modern landfill. This does not protect the people of Saugus. I will continue to pursue ways to limit the height of this ash landfill to keep our community healthy and safe,” Panetta vowed. State Rep. RoseLee Vincent (DRevere) – whose district includes Precincts 3 and 10 in Saugus – said she was“deeply disappointed” with the attorney general’s decision. “I would argue that the basis of part of the Attorney General’s decision is inaccurate because the case law which is cited does not reflect the current situation,” Vincent said in a prepared statement. “In the case which is cited, the Town of Saugus adopted a by-law to prevent any landfills in the town from going beyond a height elevation of forty feet, when in fact at that time, the landfill in Saugus had state approval to extend to fifty feet,” Vincent said. “In this current situation, there is no such approval for any landfill in the town to extend beyond fifty feet, which is why I find it deeply troubling and disturbing that the people of the Town cannot choose to restrict zoning of the height of landfills.” Kirstie Pecci, an attorney with the Conservation Law Founda-

that the town really worked with them with the zoning. The buffers are protective of the neighborhoods, but they are so very reasonable, so they were able to get what they need onto a site. If we had gone too strict with things, it would not have made these projects feasible. I think the same can be said for even the off-Route 1 places. One thing I haven’t touched on, what’s got to be forthcoming is in Saugus Center and Cliftondale [Square]. I don’t know which will come first, but we are really looking at improving those areas, too. Both have their challenges to get going, but that’s never too far from our thoughts. Q: Anything else that you would like to share with our readers as it relates to Route 1? A: Yeah. Almost be excited about it. You’re not going to have to leave town for what you want to do. I mean, there’s going to be some world-class restaurants and some world-class hotels out there. The 40’s and 50’s type places ... these people own

their places and you just can’t throw them out. But they’re going to be gone. They’re going to be replaced by modern structures. It’s exciting what can be done; I mean there’s a lot of potential. We’re hoping that people will come to Saugus for their businesses and such. And the Landing, it really is the gateway to the whole North Shore. Q: Any talk about movie houses? A: I haven’t heard anything. You would think there would be the potential for something like that, but there are 20-odd units just south in Revere. And technology keeps on moving. People are getting those first-run movies in their houses in a week or so, and I don’t know who goes to the movies much anymore. But I think that’s a potential. I would think so. I just haven’t heard any inquiries to it. Q: And what about bowling alleys? A: Again, I haven’t heard anything about it yet. But after the success of Kings in Lynnfield, I think it’s something that would be looked at.

who know what happened to Su – and I know some of you don’t live far from me – I am not going away until I get justice for Su,” she said. Susan Taraskiewicz, 27, a Northwest Airlines ramp supervisor at Logan Airport, went to pick up some sandwiches for coworkers early on the morning of Sept. 13, 1992. But she never returned to work. Her lifeless body – beaten and stabbed – turned up in the trunk of her car the next day, parked at an auto body shop in Revere. Marlene Taraskiewicz, a Eucharistic minister at Our Lady of the Assumption Church in Lynnfield for the past 18 years, is passionate about her mission to assist police and prosecutors in closing her daughter’s murder case. She has faith that justice will one day be done. “I certainly do,” Mrs. Taraskiewicz said, as she sat on the couch, glancing at a framed copy of a photo of Susan that’s been used numerous times over the years to put a victim’s face on a brutal, unsolved crime. “I still enjoy my life. But every September, my goal is to keep

Susan’s story out there. Eventually, it will be solved. I call the detectives at least every three weeks. They work on her case a lot. It remains an active case,” she said. “If anybody haunts the people who are responsible for this, I do. And I do think the police can solve this,” she said. “Because they destroyed a family, I’m not going to give up. I am determined because I know these people are still around here. They took away a 27-year-old daughter. They took away an aunt. I’m not going to let them get away with it,” she vowed. A 1983 Saugus High graduate Originally from Chelsea, Marlene is one of 11 children and the only one left. Her late husband, Ronald, was also from Chelsea and they went to school together. Marlene and her family lived in Saugus for 32 years in a house on Mary Lou Terrace, before moving to Peabody 18 years ago. Susan, a 1983 Saugus High School graduate, was still living at home with her parents at the time of her murder. She had been working at Northwest about eight years and earned a promotion to a supervisory role at the airline company. But Susan had other career options she was pursuing. She took the test to be a firefighter and was on the reserve list of Swampscott firefighters, according to her mother. She would be 52 today if she were still alive. She had studied briefly at Massachusetts College of Art and Design in Boston. That was another possible career option she might have pursued. “People know her for track in school and for telling stories. If people wanted Cabbage Patch dolls, Susan would try to get them. She would make baskets at Easter. She liked helping people. Everybody loved her,” Marlene recalled. “Su was very active. She ran track and played soccer. She

loved to roller skate. She was very sports-minded. She had a good heart. She made costumes for all of the kids. But she wasn’t perfect. She wasn’t on time most of the time,” she said. “My last time with Susan was my 50th birthday, when my family went out to dinner. Right across the calendar, she wrote ‘I was on time,’” she said. Marlene is a mother of three children. She had a son, Ronald B. Taraskiewicz, who died several years ago. Her immediate family includes her daughter and son-in-law, Debbie and Jimmy Alimonti. They have three children: Jacleen, Jillian and James. Snoopy and Su For a visitor who looks around the rooms of Marlene’s small

MISSION | from page 8 near the doorway is a framed drawing of Snoopy sitting down while holding a rose with one of his paws. And it bears this short tribute: “For Marlene and Ron – May I share the love and memories of Su. Snoopy and I appreciate being a part of your family.” It is signed by Charles Schulz, the American cartoonist who created Snoopy and the rest of the “Peanuts” characters. Schulz sent the autographed drawing to Marlene after learning of Su’s death. A facsimile of it adorns Su’s gravestone. “She was a big Snoopy collector. I probably have 20 cases of Snoopies packed away,” Marlene said. “Su went to visit him [Schulz]. It took her 12 hours to get to San Francisco. She flew Northwestern. She was going to wait outside for a while, but when Charlie Schulz found out she was waiting outside, he invited her in, so she got to meet him and told him about her collection,” she said. “When Saugus did over the library [Saugus Public Library], we gave them one of her Snoopies,” she said. Sue, who was very artistic and creative, aspired to be a cartoonist.

Marlene’s theories about the case After pushing for police to continue their homicide investigation for a quarter of a century, Marlene has developed her own opinions about the case. For starters, she believes her daughter’s murder should have been solved 25 years ago. “I feel it did not get the attention at the beginning that it should have,” she said. Initially, police believed she was the victim of random violence. She scoffs at speculation that the murder was linked to organized crime. “I know Susan’s case isn’t Mafia-connected. It has nothing to do with Mafia, Whitey Bulger or anything like that,” Marlene said. “It’s all about greed and it’s what I refer to as the ‘wannabes.’ They want to be the big shots. They want to have everything. The sad thing is they murdered her for nothing, and they know now that they did. They thought she knew about the credit card scam,” she said. Marlene was referring to a mail theft/credit card fraud scheme which led to the conviction of 35 individuals on federal charges – including 10 Northwest Airlines baggage handlers who were Susan’s coworkers. They would steal from shipments of new cards that were being flown on Northwest jets – then use or sell them. Many

of the cards that the Northwest Airlines employees distributed were ultimately fraudulently used to obtain cash advances at casinos and racetracks in such places as Miami, Las Vegas and Atlantic City.

Page 9

“A newspaper story reported that Susan ‘went and squealed on them.’ But that’s not true. She didn’t know anything about it,” Marlene said. “I think it’s more than Northwest people who were involved.

I think there are many people. I believe that one of her coworkers put her name out there – that she knew about the credit card scam. And once that hap-

him a chance and supported hiring him for the job. Unfortunately, under the past administration, the financial condition of Saugus was not good. The Town’s bond rating was only an A2 (with a negative outlook). We had no sustainable free cash reserves and only a minimal amount of 500,000 dollars in our stabilization fund. Therefore, in order to accomplish my vision for our community, I realized that we must first get our financial house in order. The first thing our new administration did was to have an auditing firm conduct a complete financial audit of the Town’s books. Moreover, we adopted and put in place best financial management policies. Furthermore, I accompanied our new Town Manager to the State House for a meeting with the State Auditor and top officials of the Department of Revenue to convince them to allow Saugus to use the State’s bond rate which was much better. We were successful and thus saved the tax-

payers tens of thousands of dollars in interest costs on existing loans. Today Saugus has a bond rating of AA+ (one step from the highest AAA). Free cash on hand at 2.9 million dollars and a stabilization fund of 6 million dollars. I am proud to have played an instrumental part in Saugus’s bright future. However, without the support of our Finance Committee and our Town Meeting Members, Saugus’s success would not be possible at all. When working together as a team Saugus will always have a bright future. As the former Chairman of the Board of Selectmen, I was part of a team that set in motion the plans for a new High school along with the many renovations of our parks and playgrounds. Moreover, I was also part of a team that oversaw the renovation of the Belmonte Middle school and personally oversaw the construction of our 2 1/2 mile walking path (rail-trail). My public service record includes: Chairman of the Board of Selectmen, Town Meeting Member, Vice-Chairman of the Town Meeting Charter Committee, Chairman of the Open Space Committee, Chairman of the Conservation Commission and co-founder of the Saugus ItalianAmerican Club (I.T.A.M), serving as the organization’s first office of Secretary. I currently serve as Chairman of the Board of Assessors. In conclusion, if returned to the Board of Selectmen I would bring a wealth of experience, leadership skills and the proven ability to work with people. I ask that you please consider me for one of your five votes on Election Day. Thank you.

tion (CLF) who helped draft the measures for the Alliance, called the attorney general’s decision “disturbing.” “I think it’s outrageous that a community is not allowed to limit how much toxic ash is accepted into its borders,” Pecci said in a telephone interview with The Saugus Advocate. “In my mind, the citizens in a community that receives ash in an unlined landfill should be able to say ‘enough is enough.’ This is so disappointing because Town Meeting took decisive action,” Pecci said. “It’s a setback – but there are ways to limit the size of the facility and try to protect the people of Saugus. They need to keep plugging away at it and find another way,” she said. Pecci contends that one way would be to challenge the proposed expansion of the ash landfill on the grounds that there’s not a proper site as-

signment in place. “Every time the operation of a facility goes through a major change, a new site assignment is supposed to take place,” she said. The town’s Board of Health over the past year has met in executive session on several occasions to consider a potential lawsuit in order to assert its powers to require a new site assignment. Articles conflicted with MassDEP’s power to regulate landfills In his ruling 12 years ago, Land Court Justice Charles W. Trombly Jr. concluded “Article 32 is null and void because the Town exceeded its authority. “Specifically, the Town’s Passage of Article 32 is an impermissible attempt to regulate a solid waste disposal facility properly permitted under the Com-

espite the overcast weather last Saturday, Saugus turned it up a notch to show our veterans – former and currently serving and possibly new recruits – how much they are appreciated and loved by the community. World Series Park in Saugus was the venue of a massive invasion of tanks, trucks and members of all branches of the United Stars Armed Forces. Music, BBQ, and a military strong program were on tap for the hundreds of Americans that turned out to support our military’s sons and Liam and Ashton Horvath, Brennan Lynch and Kaylee Dinicola at one of daughters, of all ages. the tanks.

WROC was formed in 2013 when Saugus, Revere, Chelsea and Winthrop came together to apply for the Massachusetts Opioid Abuse Prevention Collaborative (MOAPC) grant. The group was awarded the grant in 2014, initiating a seven-year contract that funds local and regional strategies that address the opioid epidemic. “The Youth Risk Behavior Survey assesses crucial behaviors that we as parents, leaders and as a community need to be aware of and working together to minimize,” School Committee Chair Jeannie Meredith said.

Seems like a reasonable request It seems like School Committee Vice-Chair Peter Manoogian raised a legitimate issue at last week’s School Committee meeting. He wanted it noted in the meeting minutes his reason for voting against a motion at a previous meeting. “I have a right to have my reason recorded,” Manoogian insisted. School Committee Chair Jeannie Meredith said the current policy for writing minutes for School Committee meetings doesn’t allow for members to give reasons for their votes. If Manoogian wants to have the minutes amended to reflect his reasons for voting against the motion, he needs the approval of the full committee, according to Meredith. So the committee voted to put Manoogian’s request on the agenda for the next meeting.

Meredith might be right in citing the School Committee policies for writing minutes of meetings. If so, that sort of defeats the purpose for keeping minutes. Indeed, over the course of my career when I wanted to find out how a committee or board voted and why they did, I would request to see the minutes. And if somebody was in the minority voting on a particular motion, their reason was usually contained in the minutes. That’s common practice for boards and committees that I have covered over the years. Why did somebody vote against a project or for it? Seems like information that’s very relevant to somebody who might be researching the vote. Fire Department to host free Open House This just in from the Saugus Fire Department, which will be hosting a free Open House on Saturday, Oct. 7, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Public Safety Building at 27 Hamilton St. in Saugus. The Saugus Fire Department welcomes local families to this Open House sponsored by Papa Gino’s (the Dedham, Mass.-based pizza chain) which is aimed at teaching families fire safety and prevention practices. Papa Gino’s will be providing free pizza and children’s fire safety coloring sheets. This Open House commemorates National Fire Safety Month (October). Participants will receive safety tips, including “stop, drop and roll,” and learning how to plan escape routes and how to crawl safely through a smokefilled room. “This event allows us to reach out to the community and arm local families with fire safety tips and procedures,” Saugus Fire Chief Michael Newbury said. “Our Open House allows families to get together and prepares them to react if a fire does start.” Papa Gino’s is celebrating its 23rd anniversary of sponsoring fire safety open houses throughout New England to encourage families to learn about fire safety. For the past 23 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.

Martha Leahy of the First Congregational Church UCC, 300 Central St., Saugus. Here’s a press release she passed onto us for this week’s paper: “When children are small, parents seem to easily come up with ways to teach them lessons and act as their guides in life. “Things change dramatically when children become adults. “How or what can we say when we see them going down a destructive path? When their choices of friends and partners trouble us? When they can’t seem to find who they are and what they want to become? “Prayer is a way to ease our worries. In a five-part series, we will explore these topics and more. All parents, guardians and caregivers of adult children are welcomed to attend.” Series co-leaders are Susan Finnegan, RN, Director of the HIV Clinic at Lynn Community Health Center, and Rev. Martha Leahy, Pastor of First Congregational Church UCC in Saugus. The five sessions will be held on Wed., Oct. 11, Oct. 25, Nov. 8, Nov. 29 and Dec. 13, from 7-8:30 p.m. at First Congregational Church UCC (300 Central St., Saugus). “The building is entirely wheelchair-accessible. We welcome parents of LGBTQIA adult children. We are non-judgmental and encourage those of all faiths and no religious affiliation to come.” For the first session, please bring a photo of one adult child. By the end of the sessions, participants will have learned five ways to pray for their adult children. Additional sessions may be added at the request of participants. For questions, call Rev. Leahy at 781-233-3028 or email her at uccsaugus@verizon.net. Some citizen concerns Are you a Saugus resident who is tired of getting the runaround at Town Hall or at the School Department? Yeah, you’re not the only one who gets ignored when seeking public information. Town Manager Scott C. Crabtree and Saugus Public Schools Superintendent Dr. David DeRuosi, Jr. don’t return some of our telephone calls and emails either. I don’t take it personally. But I do think it reflects an indifference to the public, as many of our unanswered questions are in pursuit of information that would be of interest to the public. So, if you want to share with us some frustrations about not getting answers from town government, feel free to email me at mvoge@comcast.net. By introducing this new component to our weekly “Sounds of Saugus” column, we hope to engage citizens on issues that matter to them – and to get answers, of course. For instance, last week, we got questions from people wanting to know the names of streets on the town manager’s paving list after the town manager’s office sent us a press release, titled “Town of Saugus Tackles Pavement Improvement Projects to Improve Roadway Safety and Traffic Flow.” Prior to running the press release, we pressed for that information. We’re still waiting for a response. More deadlines for candidates There are a few more deadlines for political candidates to follow as they prepare for the Nov. 7 town elections: • Oct. 5 at 5 p.m. Last day to file objections or withdrawals

• Oct. 5 at 5:30 p.m. Drawing of ballot positions (second floor auditorium at Town Hall) • Oct. 18 from 8:15 a.m. to 8 p.m. Last day to register to vote • Oct. 24 Office of Campaign Finance Reports are due • Dec. 7 Office of Campaign Finance Reports are due Curbside leaf collection commences The Town of Saugus will hold several curbside leaf collection days over the next couple of months. Residents may dispose of leaves curbside on their regularly scheduled collection day during the following upcoming weeks: Oct. 23-27, Nov. 13-17 and Dec. 4-8. Leaves should be left outside by 7 a.m. on the appropriate days. Please ensure that leaf containers are physically separated from trash and recycling. Paper leaf bags are the preferred method of leaf disposal. If using barrels, however, they must be clearly marked with yard waste stickers. Stickers, which are free, may be obtained at Inspectional Services in the lower level of Town Hall, at 298 Central St. in Saugus. Barrel covers must remain removed so that the leaves are visible. Plastic bags, cardboard boxes, branches and brush will not be accepted. Please note that separate trucks collect the rubbish, recycling and leaves, so the leaves may be collected at a different time of day. “Missed pick-ups” will not be conducted. Please contact Lorna Cerbone at 781-231-4036 with any questions. At the Iron Works The Saugus Iron Works National Historic Site has a neat program coming up this weekend: Park Rangers are offering this free program tomorrow (Saturday, Sept. 23), from 12:30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m.: “Saugus River Estuary Walk.”“Join a ranger in a short walk down a nature trail as we discuss different plant and animal adaptations for living in a tidal riparian zone,” a press release from the Iron Works notes. “Learn about some of the different plant and animal species that call the Saugus River home, and come see why it makes a great habitat for a diverse array of species. This walk will be fun for all ages, but is not stroller friendly.” The Iron Works is also offering a special river trip at $15 per person on multiple days – Sept. 23 and Oct. 22 – from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., and 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. “Join us on a paddle up the Saugus River and experience the River’s place in the nature, history, and community of Saugus,” according to the website. “Visitors will paddle for three hours round trip with guides to the Saugus Iron Works from Stocker Playground,” the website adds. To register, email contact@PaddleBoston.com.

Tuesday is Farmers Market Day The Annual Saugus Farmers Market has returned for another season. The market will operate every Tuesday until October – from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. – in the Anna Parker Playground parking lot at 120 Essex St. The market offers vegetables, fruits, fresh fish, baked goods and other good stuff. Coming attractions at Saugus Public Library Speaking of the library, here a few things coming up: Tend the Children’s Garden with Youth and Nature! Every Tuesday, 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. Book Sale at Saugus Public Library New Friends of the Saugus Public Library are continuing their annual book sale, which began last Saturday in conjunction with Founders Day. Adult, young adult and children’s books, as well as CD’s and DVD’s, will be available. Avid readers in search of a book can come to the community room between the hours of 9:00 and 2:00, using the Taylor Street entrance, to pick up some great reads! Donations of newer or gently used books are currently being accepted at the library. Please note: The library does not accept textbooks, computer books or encyclopedias.

High School students should apply Town Clerk Ellen Schena asked me to put the word out that she’s still looking for a few good men and women to work as election workers for the Nov. 7 town election. There will be two shifts: 6 a.m. to 2 p.m. and 2 p.m. to closing. “I’m willing to be flexible with the hours,” Schena said in a recent interview. “And, they can work a full day, which is about 15 hours,” she said. Schena is looking to fill vacant poll workers’ positions at each of the 10 precincts, at about a $9-an-hour rate. People under age 17 need not apply, as they would be too young. She said she always needs to have extra people available, in case somebody cancels their assignment on or near Election Day. “I usually get about five cancellations before the election,” Schena said. “Most people who work for us are retirees. But, I’m starting to get more High School students. So, this would be a good job for them – somebody who is smart, quick and has the energy. And it’s actually a good way for them to help support their community.” Letters were due to go out to about 80 to 90 people, scheduling them to work. Usually 100 to 110 are signed up to work on Election Day, Schena said.

F

amily members say Craig Dustin, Sr. loved to paddle his red kayak out on the Saugus River to go fishing – something he could do more frequently after retiring this past January. But nobody expected the 72-year-old Saugus resident would be taking his last kayaking trip when he departed from a boat ramp near the Fox Hill Yacht Club at about 11 a.m. on Tuesday. After he failed to show up to meet his wife Patricia at about 2:30 p.m., Dustin’s son Keith drove to the Saugus Boat Landing on Ballard Street where he found his dad’s car still in its parking spot. At that point, Keith Dustin feared for the worst – that his dad was missing – and contacted the Coast Guard, which began a search late that afternoon. Search crews from the Boston-based Massachusetts State Police Marine Unit, Massachusetts State Police Special Emergency Response Team (SERT), Saugus Police and Fire Departments, Lynn Harbormaster, Lynn Police Department, Winthrop Harbormaster, Winthrop Police Department, Melrose Fire Department, Swampscott Police Department, Revere Police Department and Nahant Police Department joined the search team from Coast Guard Station Point Allerton. Coast Guard crews searched through the night Crews saturated a 25-squarenautical-mile search area for several hours, before calling it off at about 9 p.m. on Tuesday. Meanwhile, Coast Guard crews searched throughout the night in Lynn Harbor, Nahant Bay, inland waters from Point of Pines, and the shoreline from Winthrop

SUBJECT OF A RIVER SEARCH: Craig Dustin Sr., 72, of Saugus, failed to return Tuesday afternoon from a kayaking trip in the Saugus River.

to Revere. Shor tly before 10 a.m. Wednesday, the search crews found Dustin’s kayak washed ashore near Winthrop Parkway in Revere with his wallet inside, according to a press release issued by the Coast Guard. A statement issued by the State Police noted that searchers spotted Dustin’s kayak at around 10:35 a.m. near the ocean side of the sea wall at Short Beach on the Revere-Winthrop line. “The discovery of the kayak prompted an intensive search in that area by ground and marine units from the joint federalstate-local search team,” State Police spokesman David Procopio said. “At approximately 11 a.m., a Massachusetts State Trooper searching the rocky coastline just south of the location of the kayak made visual observation of a deceased body in the rough surf. The body matched the physical and clothing descriptions of Mr. Dustin and is believed to be him,” Procopio said.

“AN AWESOME FAMILY MAN”: When the late Craig Dustin, Sr. wasn’t out kayaking or playing golf, he was spending time with his family – particularly his five grandchildren. (Courtesy photo to The Saugus Advocate from the family of Craig Dustin Sr.)

A U.S. Coast Guard boat recovered the body from the surf and found a flotation device nearby. “This is a sad ending to a difficult search … Our hearts are with his family and the local community,” said Capt. Claudia Gelzer, commander of Sector Boston of the Coast Guard. State police and other authorities were continuing an investigation yesterday into the cause of Dustin’s death. “A preliminary examination did not reveal obvious signs of foul play, but the deceased will be transported to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner for identification and autopsy,” said Jake Wark, a spokesman for the Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office. “An awesome family man” Craig Dustin Sr. retired in January from his salesman job at New England School Services in Somerville.

MISSION | from page 9 pened, everybody thought she knew. But she didn’t know,” she said. Susan never mentioned the credit card scam to her family, or in a diary that she kept. But she did mention some of the names of the coworkers who were later charged in the scam in her diary, along with the harassment and abusive treatment she received. “She said they didn’t want a female supervisor … Sue was getting harassed terribly. They urinated in her locker. They drew a coffin with her name on it in her locker. They thought by scaring her, that she would quit,” Marlene said. “They wrote her name on the inside of the belly of the plane. She thought because she was a female, they wanted to get rid of her. They took her life for nothing. She never went to the police. She never went to the FBI. She never went to anyone,” she said. Marlene said she believes that anybody involved in the mail theft/credit card fraud scheme would still be considered a potential suspect until Susan’s murder is solved. “All I know – she didn’t know about the credit cards. And she was murdered because they thought she knew about it,” Marlene said. A rainbow and some thunder To commemorate her daughter’s murder this year, Marlene got permission to hold a “Remembering Su” candlelight vigil at World Series Park last week (Sept. 14). Family and friends gathered for a couple of hours for testimony about Susan’s life, prayers and music. The night began with the Snoopy theme song. And white balloons were released into the air as the crowd sang “Let there be peace and let it begin with me.” At the vigil, Marlene thanked her daughter, law enforcement and the media for helping to keep Susan’s memory alive. “I

wanted to thank everybody for 25 years they have been there for my family and me. I wanted this as a night to tell stories about Susan,” Marlene said. “To see all the people standing there who lived in Saugus – some of them Saugus High classmates of Susan – was so special. We had people come from the Cape, Maine and New Hampshire, Rowley. A few people who worked with Sue at Northwest,” she said. “We had a beautiful rainbow. And there was a little thunder. Everybody was saying that it was Susan. We made it out before the storm. Susan gave us a break. Seeing that rainbow just made everybody’s night. And when the rain came, Rep. Wong said it wasn’t raindrops – but tears of joy from heaven. Susan was happy to see us all,” she said. Marlene is grateful to World Series Park Superintendent Bob Davis for making the park available for the vigil. Candi Conley, a Saugus High School classmate and friend of Susan, shared some remembrances with the crowd. Conley called Susan “a special young woman who brightened our lives with her kindness and ar-

tistic talent.” “She radiated love and joy to all who knew her. Susan was a proud member of the SHS Class of 1983. It’s great to see so many of her classmates here tonight to honor her memory,” Conley said. “There are also many more who were unable to make it, but wanted us all to know that they’re here with us in spirit. Many classmates also shared their memories of Susan through our class Facebook page.” Conley read a few remembrances of Susan’s classmates. In closing, she noted that Susan “became one of the first angels of the Class of 1983.” “Su, I know you’re watching over us all and that your spirit is here with us today. Your memory will remain intact in the hearts of the Saugus High School Class of 1983 forever,” Conley said. Several of the people who attended the vigil signed Susan’s “Snoopy” autograph book, which already included the names of some prominent celebrities she met: “Death Wish” actor Charles Bronson, famed defense lawyer F.

Despite loss, Football Sachems improve against N. Quincy By Julian Cardillo

S

augus coach Anthony Nalen is pleased with the progress his team is making. Now that progress just needs to be translated into a win. The Sachems showed signs of improvement last weekend, but ultimately lost, 37-20, to North Quincy. “Definitely a more complete game than our season opener against St. Mary’s,”Nalen said.“We had just one bad quarter, letting

up 20 points in the third. It was 14-7 with 40 seconds left in the first half and then we came out of the second half flat … We have some things to work on, but overall it was a better effort.” Mike Mabee started the game one for eight but finished with 12 completions on 18 attempted passes. He had 135 yards on the game and two touchdowns. “He got off to a slow start,” said Nalen of Mabee. “It took a while to get him going, and it set us back a

bit. Once he gets going he’s fine. When he gets in his comfort zone he starts to read the game better, and he has a tremendous arm. He’s a good leader for us.” North Quincy scored two unanswered touchdowns in the first and second quarter. Mabee then responded with a five-yard touchdown pass to Ricky Martinez, which made it 14-7. A field goal by North Quincy made it 17-7 as time winded down in the half. The visitors

scored a pair of touchdowns in the third, which essentially won them the game. But the Sachems showed fight and resolve. Bruno Auzec converted a fumble return into a touchdown in the fourth, then Mabee connected with Martinez again for his second score. “The defensive turnover definitely helped,” Nalen said. “We were there this time, as opposed to with St. Mary’s when our guys weren’t in the right spots. We

just have to make the plays.” Saugus plays away at Salem tonight at 7 p.m. Nalen is expecting a tough challenge against the Witches. “They have plenty of athletes,” said Nalen of Salem. “You look at the tape and you see their QB is good; they have a bigger line and receivers, which is something that jumps out. You’ll have a hard time with any NEC team; you know they’re well coached, so we’ll have our hands full.”

the first minute of the game against the Witches, but recovered in style as four different players found the back of the net. “We’re playing well and possessing the ball well,” said Sachems coach Chris Coviello.“Our opponents haven’t had many opportunities to score.” Olivia Burke equalized on a breakaway shortly after the Witches took the lead. Shaylin

Groark dribbled through a sea of defenders before firing away the go-ahead goal later in the half. Saugus then scored four times in the second half. Allie LeBlanc scored and later set up Burke’s second goal off a corner kick. Then Allie Kotkowski scored twice and Groark converted one more time. “They’re probably the best team I’ve had. They’re technically very sound. They’ve been

playing together a couple years, most of them, so they get along well,” said Coviello, who is in his ninth year at the helm and whose best record all-time in a season is 14-4. He continued, “Our goal every year is to make the tournament. That’s the first goal. We’ll see what happens after that.” The 5-0 Sachems go for another win at home against Everett on Monday.

This Sunday, September 24 beginning at 1 p.m. Breakaway hosts Band’N Together for Texas All proceeds benefit victims of Hurricane Harvey

D

ANVERS – Breakaway on Newbury Street in Danvers has announced an amazing musical event on Sunday, September 24, to aid victims of Hurricane Harvey in Houston, Texas. The night will feature 10 bands – top regional musical giants Fortune with Barry Goudreau, formerly of the band Boston, Aerochix, Brian Maes, 43 Church Street, the Slush Puppies, and the Lee Hawkins Band, to name a few. Also featured is legendary guitarist and songwriter Charlie Farren. Breakaway owner Joe Crowley will be donating his music hall along with an incredible buffet for an incredible night of music to raise money for the victims of the catastrophic flooding that has hit Texas.“My heart goes out to those people who need so much help, so I think a night of musical camaraderie among our great musical

talent can help those who’ve lost so much,” said Crowley. On that same day (Sept. 24), the New England Patriots are scheduled to play the Houston Texans, so Crowley figures a night of oldfashioned rock ’n’ roll in the spirit of Live Aid is just the remedy to aid our neighbors in the Southwest. All proceeds will go to the Topsfield/Middleton/Boxford Rotary Club, which will send the money to the Houston Rotary Club to distribute the funds to those directly in need. Tickets will cost $20 per person and will include a free buffet from 3:00 to 7:00 p.m.; the outdoor Patio will also be open, weather permitting. The music will begin at 1:00 p.m. and end at 9:00 p.m. Along with the above-named bands, also included in the lineup will be the Jimmy Hawkins Band

On Sunday, to benefit the victims of Hurricane Harvey, local legendary rockers Fortune (pictured) and Barry Goudreau, formerly of the band Boston, will perform together as well as Charlie Farren of Farrenheit and the Joe Perry Project.

and, Mary Beth Maes Band, as well as the opening acts, CIA and Back to the 80’s. Crowley is also expecting some surprise guests from some famous rockers. The North Shore area is known for its tight-knit musical communi-

ty and spirit of giving back, and Crowley said all the bands, including at least 20 more, have offered to play for gratis. “Since I started booking local talent at Breakaway, the bands have been incredible, and I truly

appreciate how hard they work at their music and their incredible fan base,” he said. “It’s moving to see the kind of people that are willing to step-up with me to help people on the other side of the country. God bless America.”

Amendments are preempted by G.L. c. 111, § 150A, as established by the Wheelabrator Land Court Decision. As an additional basis for its decision invalidating the 2003 by-law, the Land Court determined that the by-law was preempted by the broad regulatory authority granted to MassDEP in G.L. c. 111, § 150A, the Site Assignment Statute.

“The Site Assignment Statute undoubtedly provides a comprehensive process by which landfills such the one at issue are regulated by state agencies, most notably the DEP, to the exclusion of local authorities.” She stated, “The court noted that, although the statute allows for a site assign-

ment decision by the local board of health, ‘a board may not dispose of a landfill operator’s right to operate in accordance with regulatory approvals received from the DEP. ... The Town is preempted from adopting by-laws that conflict with the operation of MassDEP’s authority to regulate landfills.’”

REGULATIONS | from page 10 monwealth’s Site Assignment Statute.” Healey’s decision reinforced the 14-year-old Land Court ruling.“Because the by-law amendments proposed here are substantially the same as the provisions of the 2003 by-law that was struck down by the Land

Court in Wheelabrator (with the major difference being the allowable height of the landfill), we must disapprove Articles 1, 2, and 3 because they violate the protections given to solid waste facilities in G.L. c. 40A, § 9. V.,” Healey wrote. She stated, “The By-Law
