“C

an you go one more play?” During his talk at the Saugus Lions Club’s Annual Football Meeting and Dinner last Wednesday night, for-

mer New England Patriots star offensive lineman Peter Brock kept repeating a question that a teammate asked him 34 years ago. Brock, who played 13 years with the Patriots, recalled what he considered a career and life-

changing moment – a day when “I learned what it meant to give 100 percent.” It was a Nov. 13, 1983, game in Foxboro against the Miami Dol-

Checking the votes Recount sought by Selectman candidate Corinne Riley scheduled for next Monday

T

he Board of Registers has scheduled a recount for next Monday (Nov. 27) of votes cast in the selectmen’s race in the recent Town Elections. Town Clerk Ellen J. Schena sent out a letter this week, notifying all nine candidates that the recount of votes for precincts 1–10 will take place at 10 a.m. in the Veterans Memorial Elementary School Gymnasium located 39 Hurd Ave. “All Board of Selectmen Candidates that were listed on the November 7, 2017 Ballot are invited to participate,” Schena wrote. “Each candidate may be represented by up to one ‘agent’ for each officer or clerk read-

ing the ballots or recording the votes. These agents must be appointed by the candidate, in writing, prior to November 27, 2017,” the clerk said. Corinne R. Riley – who lost the fifth and final seat on the Board of Selectmen by a narrow margin in the Nov. 7 election – requested the recount. “I decided to petition, above all, because of the closeness of the count: 16 votes between 6th and 5th position is not many,” Riley told The Saugus Advocate last week. “I owe it to my supporters who I heard from, making sure the process was not flawed seeing these were new machines,” Riley said in a brief statement.

Riley finished sixth among nine candidates, just 16 votes behind fifth-place finisher Mark D. Mitchell. Former Selectman Michael J. Serino finished 37 votes behind Riley in a tight, three-way race for the fifth seat. Board Chair Debra C. Panetta and her colleagues Jeffrey V. Cicolini, Jennifer E. D’Eon, Scott A. Brazis and Mitchell retained their seats in this month’s town elections. Michael Coller and Assunta A. Palomba finished eighth and ninth, respectively, in the selectmen’s race. This year’s election drew a turnout of close to 22 percent – 4,053 of the 18,617 registered voters, according to the Town Clerk’s Office.

Volunteer and interim director Wendy Reed talks about how the Saugus United Food Pantry helps feed needy people Editor’s Note: For this week, we sat down with Wendy Reed, interim director and one of many volunteers of the Saugus United Parish Food Pantry. Reed, the longtime clerk to the Board of Selectmen and a former School Committee member, oversees the allvolunteer operation of the food pantry, which is located at 50 Essex St. in the basement of Cliftondale Congregational Church and is open for clients every Friday from 9:30 to 11 a.m. It is affiliated with the Greater Boston Food Bank. This year the pantry is planning to distribute 110-120 Thanksgiving dinners which will include a turkey, stuffing mix, cranberry sauce, canned vegetables, gravy, fresh produce – squash, apples, oranges, celery, onions and carrots – and a pie. Some highlights of the interview follow. Q: Do you know how long the Saugus United Parish Food Pantry has been in existence and how it evolved? A: I’ll get Bill [Cashman] to answer that question because his wife was one of the original founders, and that was a good 20 years ago, if not more. [Bill Cashman said his wife, Carol,

helped to found the pantry about 30 years ago, and he noted that “it started in a church closet and kind of grew. The reason they call it United Parish Food Pantry is because many parishes participate. And the big reason it works is because of all the volunteers that make it go.”] Q: Wendy, can you share your best recollections on the how the pantry’s future was threatened and how you and the volunteers stepped up to keep it

going? Please describe the situation the pantry was facing and what it took to continue serving needy people. A: The previous director – the job has time demands and she had family issues and she needed to resign. And we tried and tried to get someone to step up as director. And no one wanted to. But it’s a lot of work for one person, so I offered to step up if everyone would take on their own responsibilities in the ar-

Patching things up Great Woods Road homeowner seeks help from town in eliminating noise generated by “bad patch” in Walnut Street By Mark E. Vogler

J

oseph P. Roberto said he and his wife have been forced to endure a jarring noise that resonates inside his house at 1 Great Woods Rd. when a commercial vehicle bounces up and down over a dip in the road on Walnut Street. “During the good weather, from the spring to the late fall, that’s when we have to put up with it,” Roberto said of “a bad patch,” he claims he’s been trying to get the town to fix for several years – without much success. “There are times when we wake up at three in the morning. This is affecting the health and welfare of my wife because it’s

PATCHING | SEE PAGE 17

ANGRY HOMEOWNER: U.S. Navy veteran Joseph Roberto spent part of his Veterans Day briefing The Saugus Advocate about a poorly patched spot in the road in front of his house on Walnut Street at the intersection of Great Woods Road. He says he complained to the town about three years ago about the noise problems it caused inside his house every time a commercial vehicle with loose material hits the depression with a jarring impact. But he’s still waiting for relief.

keeping her awake so she can’t get her proper sleep. She has COPD [Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease] and can’t even take a nap on many afternoons because the noise is so bad,” Roberto said. Roberto, 79, retired in 1999 after more than three decades in the asphalt business. He claims the road patch in the middle of Walnut Street wasn’t done properly and remains the source of the nuisance problem that keeps his wife from getting her rest for most of the year – except during the winter months. Empty commercial vehicles, POINTING OUT THE PROBLEM: Joseph P. Roberto, of 1 Great construction trucks, 10-wheelWoods Rd., points to a depression in the middle of Walnut Street ers, landscaping trailers, flatbed across from his house, where he says a poorly constructed patch trucks, tow trucks, trash trucks creates a noise nuisance that “resonates inside my home every and other vehicles with loose time a commercial vehicle with materials on the back part” hits gears or loose material on the the dip in the road.

er side. Alanah’s choice was unique among the children who were counting their blessings recently at the library. But her leaf wasn’t as unusual as one done by eight-year-old Gavin Luongo of Waybright Elementary School. “Thankful for snakes,” wrote Gavin, a third grader. Eight-year-old Lexi Rappa, of the Our Lady of Assumption

School, was a little more traditional. “I picked my house because it provides me shelter, my family because I love my family and my dogs because my dogs are my favorite animals,”Lexi said of the writings on her leaf. “I picked God because he give us everything,”six-year-old Sheri Habib, a first grader at Waybright Elementary School, said. Eight-year-old Vanessa Hall,

a second grader at Our Lady of Assumption School, was eager to explain what she wrote on her leaf. “I picked my family because they care for me and do a lot of things for me. And I picked God’s love because if we didn’t have God’s love, nobody would be caring for each other,” Vanessa said. Amy Melton, the children’s librarian at the Saugus Public Library, said she is counting the library in her blessings this

A FAMOUS CAT: Amy Melton, the children’s librarian at the Saugus Public Library, stands near a cardboard “Pete the Cat” on the bulletin board bearing Thanksgiving blessings. Melton calls Pete – a character in several children’s books, “One of the rock stars in children’s literature.”

Thanksgiving Day. “It’s a very nice library – especially because of all the great volunteers and staff that make it a nice place,” Melton said. Joao Lima, a 10-year-old student at Pioneer Charter School of Science, shares a special love and appreciation for the library, too. “I think libraries are great,” Joao said, as he prepared his own leaf for the bulletin board. “Where would we be without them? I’m very thankful that this library provides books for people for free – and that can be used over and over again. And I’m also thankful to all the people who work here. They are very sweet and kind,” added Joao, who loves the library so much that he volunteers some of his time helping out.

augus police went to the Avalon Motel late last Thursday morning after receiving a report of a man “destroying a room.” That response led to the arrest of the man on multiple charges – including drug-related offenses – and the seizure of 155 grams of heroin with an estimated street value of $9,000. Police charged Frank Laporta, 33, of Somerville, with trafficking in heroin of more than 100 grams, with possession of a Class C substance, with resisting arrest and with malicious destruction of property (over $250). “I want to congratulate the Patrol Division and the officers involved in this case for their dedication and professionalism in apprehending this suspect,”Saugus Police Chief Domenic J. DiMella said in a press release issued this week. “They safely deescalated a potentially dangerous situation and seized a significant amount of deadly drugs,” the chief said. After the police arrived, they located a man, later identified as Laporta, pacing outside of one of the motel rooms, according to the police report. “Officers observed that the room had been torn apart, with the bed, a table

and a chair all flipped over,” the report noted. “Officers began an on-scene investigation and asked Laporta to have a seat inside the room. As he sat, officers observed large bulges coming from the pockets of his shorts and noticed that Laporta continuously reached into his pockets in spite of instructions not to do so,” police said.

After searching Laporta’s pockets, police removed a knife and a needle, which was snagged on a plastic bag containing several smaller bags with a brown, powdery substance police believe to be heroin and three yellow pills they identified as Clonazepam inside. Police said they observed a large bulge in Laporta’s waistband and removed a large plastic bag that contained several bags of brown powder believed to be heroin. At that time, he allegedly attempted to flee from police, who were able to subdue him and take him into custody without further incident. Police took Laporta to an area hospital for a medical evaluation. He was later booked and held on $100,000 bail pending his arraignment in Lynn District Court on Nov. 17.

When he retired from playing he became a coach for the Red Sox. He graduated from Los Angeles’s Fremont High School in 1936. While still in school he began his professional ca-

reer with the Hollywood Stars of the Pacific Coast League in 1934 and 1935. In 1936 he played for the San Diego Padres of the Pacific Coast League, where he met Ted Williams. In 175 games for the Padres, he batted .342 and had 238 hits with 17 doubles and 12 triples. Now out of school at 19 he became a major leagu-

er in 1937. He was an excellent bunter and led the league with 22 in 1938. Bobby had 12 consecutive seasons with 10 or more home runs and 73 or more RBIs. The Red Sox retired his number – 1 – when he retired. His all-star seasons began in 1941 and continued in 1944, 1946, 1948, 1950 and 1951. Doerr had his best season in 1944 where he finished second to Lou Boudreau with a

batting average of .325 (only 2 points behind), and he was first in slugging percentage. Doerr hit for the cycle (single, double, triple and home run in the same game) twice in his career: in 1944 and 1947. He missed the 1945 season while serving in the U.S. Army. After his military career was over, he hit .409 in the 1946 World Series. In 1949 he batted .309 and had 18 home runs and 109 RBIs. His batting average dropped to .232 in 1950, but he finished the year with a league-leading 11 triples. Over his career he played in 8,028 games and scored 1,094 runs, 89 triples, 809 walks, 1,349 singles and 693 extra base hits, and he reached base 2,862 times. Bobby was at home in Fenway Park. Over his career he hit .315 with 145 home runs. On the road he hit .261 and 78 home runs. He batted over 300 three times and had six seasons of 100 RBIs or more. His lofty image is of his defensive capabilities. He led the league in double plays five times and tied the league record in putouts and fielding percentage four times each, and three times in assists. He held the career record in double plays at second base with 1,507 until it was best-

ed in 1963. His career fielding percentage of .980 was the league record until 1953. Doerr retired to Oregon to run his cattle ranch but had as strong desire to return to baseball. He was a Red Sox scout from 1957 to 1966 and served as a minor league batting instructor for the Red Sox in the years 1961 to 1966. In 1967 the Red Sox hired him as a first base coach under manager Dick Williams. He retired from the Red Sox in 1969 and became the hitting coach for the expansion team the Toronto Blue Jays from 1977 to 1981. On August 2, 2007, the Red Sox held a “Bobby Doerr Day” at Fenway Park, and he threw out the first pitch. His plaque in Cooperstown reads “QUIET LEADER OF RED SOX DURING THE 1940S. CONSISTENT SECOND BASEMAN, TOP DOUBLEPLAY MAN, AND FINE CLUTCH HITTER. LIFRETIME BATTING AVERAGE OF 288 WITH SIX SEASONS OF OVER 100 RBIs. Held A.L.

Caught on camera Two graffiti artists who sprayed a Saugus business with graffiti appeared on security video film he said. Security video turned over to police shows one of the suspects going up the ladder at 3:04 a.m. and coming down at 4 a.m. “The first kid gets

on the ladder and he’s waving his friend to get on,” Guarente said. “His friend comes up to the ladder. When the second perpetrator first started, he cov-

ered his face, but when he went down, his face was uncovered. So I’d say that police will be able to identify them based on the quality of the video we have,” he said.

WE’RE EXPANDING! Security footage captured the images of the two graffiti artists who tagged the Junkster Bag building on Broadway in Saugus.

By Mark E. Vogler

L

eo Guarente wasn’t happy when he drove up to his Route 1 business, Junkster Bag, on Friday and noticed the rooftop graffiti that had been spray painted onto his building. “Killing Citiz,” shouted the black letters splashed with other colors in a conspicuous manner at 1423 Broadway, located right at the Essex Street off ramp to Route 1 South. “When we pulled into the parking lot Friday morning, it took half of the top part of my building up,” Guarente told The Saugus Advocate this week. “It took me about an hour to repaint it. I hope they catch these guys because defacing private property is a felony in Massachusetts,” Guarente said. Guarente is optimistic that Saugus police will eventually capture the two graffiti artists who vandalized his building. “I guess they want to be famous, so we will make them famous – by putting them in the video that we turned over to police,” he said. “We know what they looked like because they looked right into the camera. The quality of the video is so good, I can pick them out in a lineup,” Guarente said.

The vandals did their graffiti between 3 and 4 a.m. on Friday, according to the time noted in the video, according to Guarente. “I’d say the amount of paint they used must have cost $200 – and an hour of their life that they will never get back,” he said. “They actually grabbed a ladder from behind my office and climbed up my roof. It was freezing cold that morning,” Guarente said. “When they left, they put the ladder back. So they are ‘polite criminals.’ They also left their initials: DP and KC,” he said. Guarente said he doesn’t know what message the vandals had hoped to express in their graffiti, with the words “Killing Citiz.”“It’s obvious that they didn’t pass their freshman English because they didn’t spell cities right,” he quipped. Guarente, who has lived in Saugus for 13 years, said he has owned the business for about eight years and “Kids have spray painted the building in the past, but they never went on my roof.” “The reporting officer told me the painters were professional. He said it wasn’t just some punk kids; they were professional graffiti artists,”

Teammate Jon Salmeron, an offensive and defensive lineman for the Tanners, said he thinks Raposa could still play collegiate ball despite his size. “He’s a really tough kid, even though he’s small. He has a lot of heart and he works hard in practice,” Salmeron said. “I think he could play in college if he tries hard enough,” he said. Saugus honors a star player First-year Saugus High School Coach Anthony Nalen elected to give this year’s “Heisman Award” to one of his team’s stars: Ricky Martinez. “This individual is really the heart and soul of the team – he makes us tick,” Nalen said. “He’s a great role model for our younger players. He really exemplifies what it means to be a Sachem,” Nalen said. For the former players, coaches and Lions Club members from both communities, last Wednesday’s dinner at Prince was almost like a class reunion. “I played in the game back in the 60s. I will leave it at that,” said Peter Sakelakos, treasurer and member of the Peabody Lions Club’s Board of Directors. “We went into that game undefeated and we lost to Saugus. I had two boys play for Peabody. I can’t remember if they won or lost. But you remember the game that you play in,” he said. Sakelakos said he is looking forward to next year’s dinner, when the Peabody Lions will host the event after many years of not being involved. The annual Lions Club event carries special meaning for Peabody High School Coach Bettencourt, who has the distinction of attending as both a player and a coach – this year being his fifth as coach.“For me, having played

in this game will always mean a lot, said Bettencourt, a 1991 Peabody graduate “During my junior year, we won the game on a goal line stand after Saugus decided to go for the win on a two-point conversion … We were up 147. Saugus’ Marc Fauci – the best player on the field – scrambled and scored a touchdown with no time left. They decided to go for two. It was like a rugby scrum. We were offside three times in a row. We had a scrum, like in Rugby, where 11 guys were fighting 11 guys for one inch. We held our ground,” he said. “For me, personally, every year, the game means a lot. It would mean the world to finish with a winning record – 6-5 – that would mean a lot,”Bettencourt said. For Saugus High School’s Nalen, tomorrow will be his baptismal experience in the Tanners-Sachems Thanksgiving Day clash. “This is a wonderful event,” Nalen said of the Lions Club dinner. As for tomorrow’s game, “I know it will be a hard-fought game,” he said. Nalen said he looks forward to becoming part of a longtime tradition experienced by football players in Peabody and Saugus.

Saugus football team eyes key game on Thanksgiving By Julian Cardillo

S

augus has come a long way since head coach Anthony Nalen took over last spring. The Sachems have momentum heading into their final game of the season, against Peabody on Thanksgiving, and even have a chance to make history. Senior quarterback Mike Mabee tied the school record for touchdown passes in a season (18); with one more on Turkey Day, he’ll cement his name in Saugus history. Mabee’s success has been a biproduct of the team’s success. Last year at this time, the Sachems were 1-9 and getting blown out on the regular. Today the Sachems are 4-6 and on a three-game winning streak. Nalen has been busy preparing for the season finale on Thursday against the 5-5 Tanners. “We watch a ton of film,” said Nalen. “Peabody is very well-coached. They’re tough, very hard-nosed, and play in the NEC large. There are no easy battles, so I expect Thursday will be a very physical game, so we have to be prepared, both mentally and physically.” Nalen enjoys Thanksgiving football even though he has four children and a fiancée eagerly waiting at home for his return from the gridiron. His senior year at Pope John, he threw the winning touchdown pass against Chelsea in a 2827 victory. Beating a rival was a perfect send-off for the now-

A girl played on the Sachem’s Freshman Football Team this season By Julie Sampaio, Special to the Saugus Advocate

P

aula Samira, a student of the 2021 class, tried out for the SHS football team this season and has recently played in three freshman games. Last football season, Paula was cheerleading but she wanted to do something that was a bit more aggressive. She had never played football before, and had to ask to join late in the season. She didn’t hesitate and wasn’t scared to try out; she didn’t doubt herself. She was really happy when she got in. Paula admits that that’s when she got scared because she didn’t know that much about football, so she

stayed up late watching videos. In the first practice, she had to change in the boys’ locker room because that is where the team meets up to go over plays and what they are going to do that day. The boys are very respectful and will not even knock to go into her space, a closed door right before the bathrooms, until she opens the door. Coach A.J. Guthro told the boys that they needed to treat her like one of the guys, and made sure they knew she was part of their football family. During the first few practices, the boys would go easier on her, but eventually they treated her the same because they saw how much hard work Paula was, and is, putting in. Paula comes to

even at practice. She even ended up playing with all her makeup still on in her first game, because she ended up not having enough time to remove it. Paula Samira is Brazilian and was considering playing either soccer or football this fall season, but she chose football over soccer, breaking yet another stereotype. She says her friends do soccer and she had every reason to do soccer, but she wanted to play football more than soccer. When she talks to family and friends back in Brazil, they think what she is doing is really cool because they have nothing like it in Brazil. She says she remembers watching high school movies in Brazil with the football games and says, “I thought

I would be a cheerleader, but I never thought a football player ... it’s the American dream.” Paula hasn’t been the only girl at SHS to play football. Trini Aschul is also part of the team this year. In the football season of 2007, Sam Barnes played for JV and was on the Varsity team. In the football season of 1998, Danielle Barker played football for SHS and was on the wrestling team. These girls have shown that sports aren’t for one particular gender. Paula says, “I hope more girls will join, and that it will become a sport more girls will play.” These young women are empowering others to follow their dreams and to go out of your comfort zone to achieve them.

up, sorting donations, checking dates and putting bags together. Q: Any volunteers who have been there since the beginning? A: Yes. Bill [Cashman], who you met when you came through the door. He’s been here since his wife helped start this. And there are some other people. Q: And how long have you been involved? A: About four years. I started getting involved to help with paperwork, doing the reports. Q: About how many families or people benefit from the pantry each week? Who are they? Where do they come from? Any observations you can share about trends in people who frequent the pantry? A: It varies. A year ago, we serviced 28 to 35 families or households a week. Today we are servicing 35 to 45 families or households a week. In the month of October, we provided 745 bags of groceries to 105 different households that included 107 adults, 51 children and 59 seniors. We change constantly. We may have some families that just come in because they lost their

Q: How many core volunteers are there? A: We have a good 30 to 40 core volunteers that you may not see on Fridays. But, as I mentioned before, they do different things during the week, and, of course on Friday. Saugus United Parish Food Pantry has many dedicated volunteers that help in different capacities. A volunteer shops online and most is free, but some things we do need to pay for. Other volunteers help load and unload deliveries, plus help put it away. Our regular Friday volunteers work in different areas: client registration, client check-in, volunteers that shop with the client/assist through the line, other line workers, those that help clients carry their groceries out, set-up, break down, clean

school at 5:30 a.m. to work out in the multipurpose gym three days a week, and goes to practice every day. Paula really enjoys playing football. She says, “I love it. I’ve never done anything like it.”This is also, besides cheering, her first sport. She says, “It is hard but a lot of fun.” Paula says that in games boys from other teams either don’t tackle her because she is a girl or tackle her because they don’t want to be tackled by a girl. Paula Samira is breaking many stereotypes. She not only is a girl playing football, but she says she is not a tomboy; she likes to be girly. Paula says she wears a full face of makeup to school every day and likes to dress nicely,

And then they got jobs, and they’re gone. But then we have some more people who come in to register. Roughly, it’s the same amount of people, but they are different families. Q: Do most of the people come from Saugus? A: Yes. We’re right on the line, with Lynn and Revere, so it depends where the nearest pantry is. Q: Are you getting enough donations? And is there anything you could use more of to supply the pantry? A: We get regular donations. We do pretty well. We could always use more. Definitely. Because the more we have, the more we can give. Last year I advocated that any group that wanted to do a food drive or collection for the winter, possibly consider targeting soup, so we could give additional soup. Right now, you get two cans, but that’s not very much. Q: What is the biggest challenge facing the pantry? A: Space. We have limited space. The church is wonderful to us, but we’re kind of scattered

here. It’s really organized, but it’s just tight space. We don’t have the capacity to hold much more than we currently have. Q: So, at some point, you might have to look for a place to expand? A: If the need arises – if we see that there is an increase in the need because other pantries have closed. And we see our numbers really climbing; that might be something we may want to talk about. But at this time, we’re not. Q: As far as the volunteers, who are they? Where are they from? A mix of young and old people? How young are the youngest and how old are the oldest? A: Yes, it’s a mix. Our youngest is six years old. His name is Domenic. He just loves to come, and he’s a great helper. He can sell that produce or talk anyone into that bread. I just love to watch him interact with the clients. And the clients like him. The other volunteers that are young are the high school group. We have the Life Skills Class that comes, almost every Friday, a couple of Fridays a

They come from all over Q: Do you think the pantry is meeting the community’s needs? Or are there a lot more folks out there who could use the help? A: I think there are more people who could presently use help, especially people who have fallen on hard times and need temporary assistance – people who have illness, who have lost their job or whatever. But that’s what we’re here for: to help supplement whatever you need. So even if you want to come for a few weeks, a couple of months – fine. That’s what we’re here for. And people hesitate to do that. The oth-

STORIES | from page 16 Athletics Achievement Award for demonstrating two of the five pillars they stand for: leadership and community service. Jana is a junior at Saugus High School and will graduate with the class of 2019. She is hardworking and caring towards her peers. This year she is taking part in honors courses and AP Environmental Science. She has been doing cheerleading since 2010, and at Saugus High she participates in fall and winter cheering. Jana is also going to be a captain for this season’s winter cheerleading. She volunteers as a Pop Warner cheerleading coach. Jana helps out many of her peers in school by listening,

helping in any way she can, and loving them. The five pillars of the MIAA Educational Athletics Achievement Award are wellness, leadership, sportsmanship, coaches’ education, and community service. A student can be nominated by coaches, athletic directors, school staff, MIAA staff, and game officials for showing characteristics of one or more pillars. A representative from the Educational Athletics Committee came to Saugus High School and presented the award to Jana in the presence of her coach and teacher, Ms. Carnavale, Mr. Hashem, Mr. Bunnell and her mother, Lisa Morgante.

PATCHING | from page 5 body told me ‘If you don’t want to hear the noise, just close the window.’ Really? If they just fixed the problem, there wouldn’t be an issue,” he said. He got Town Hall’s attention Roberto said he hopes the town will take steps to resolve his problem, especially after his appearance before a recent Board of Selectmen’s meeting. Frustrated that he’s had to wait several years to get the matter resolved, Roberto said he’s been trying to get state Rep. Donald Wong (R-Saugus) to intervene on his behalf. The Great Woods Road resident has gotten the attention of Town Hall. Board of Selectmen Chair Debra Panetta went to Walnut Street to better understand Roberto’s concerns. “I met with Mr. Roberto and took pictures of the issue spots on Walnut Street that he explained to me,”Panetta told The Saugus Advocate. “I took this information and

forwarded it to the DPW Director and the Town Manager for follow-up,” Panetta said. “Mr. Roberto was pleased with some of the fixes made by the town, but there are other problem spots that he pointed out that need to be addressed. So this is something that the town is reviewing and trying to rectify,” she said. The section of Walnut Street that runs past Roberto’s house was scheduled to be repaved this past summer (2017). But those plans were delayed after National Grid said it planned to replace the gas main, according to Panetta.“Considering this, the repaving was postponed since we didn’t want National Grid to dig up the brand-new road,” Panetta said. “As soon as they finish with the gas main, we’ll schedule the repaving,” she said. With the cold weather months beginning, Roberto said he understands it will probably be spring before any road improvements can be made.

er group, of course, senior citizens; they only get so much assistance and it’s barely enough for food, so, here, they can get some fresh produce. They can get meats. They can get other things to help supplement what they already have. A lot will just go without. And I don’t want to hear that. If you have enough, don’t come all the time. Q: How much help do you receive from local organizations? And if you would like to acknowledge some of the groups involved? A: We have great partnerships with a number of organizations: some pick-up donations from our business partners: Saugus Stop & Shop, Revere Stop & Shop and Panera Bread are weekly regular donations; Walmart donates once a week through the “Feeding America”Program with Greater Boston Food Bank. GBFB also provides once a month deliver. About 50% of the food distributed comes from GBFB and 50% from donations. We have the Rotary Club; we have Girl Scouts, all of the churches: They all contribute something at various times. The Library is doing the food for fines right now. There are a couple of realtors who help. Q: What makes a good volunteer? How does one prepare himself or herself for this kind of community service for people who are less fortunate? A: That’s kind of a tough question, because it all depends on the individual. We always get new volunteers, and they have to work in different areas. And they get an opportunity to work in what they would most like to do. Q: I guess they have to have heart? Right? A: Of course they do. Everyone who is here, is here to help others. That goes without saying. Q: What’s your outlook on the future of the pantry? Is there a sturdy enough framework in place along with resources to keep it going for years to come? A: Yes. Because we have great partners and great volunteers, that’s going to keep us going for a long time. Q: And what are the adjustments, if any, that will be needed to keep the pantry viable? A: Adjustments? If we need to grow, then we’ll have that conversation. But, right now, this fits what’s needed. Q: What are the most remarkable things you have observed while working in the pantry? A: I’m going to tell you one thing that actually brought a tear to my eye. And that’s tough to do – very hard to do – because I don’t do a lot of crying, and I’m not a touchy person. But last year, a gentleman came in and wrote us a $500 check. And he said it was his way of saying

Page 17

thank you for helping his family when he was down and out. And he was up and working and owned his own business; and he sends regular donations; and it was so touching. It was so emotional. He was crying. I started crying. Q: My eyes are getting watery just hearing this story. A: Yeah. It was a – such a touching moment to get that genuine thank you for receiving help during a humiliating time and not feeling humiliated. And now he’s here to give back. It brings a chill. It’s sad, but it’s happy. Q: That’s a wonderful story. A: And he’s not the only one. We’ve had several others who have sent a thank you note with a check. His was just a so emotional moment. Q: If people want to help the pantry, what are some of the ways they can? A: Well, they can volunteer in many different capacities if they have the time and energy. They can certainly participate in food drives or run their own. Monetary donations are always accepted. We don’t actively solicit money, but if people want to donate, it certainly helps to defray costs, such as buying bags. That can be expensive. And it can help us get food items that we can’t get from Greater Boston. Q: What’s the best reason for somebody to become a volunteer at the pantry? Any advice you can offer to somebody thinking about it? A: That’s really up to the individual. If the individual wants to give back and do something good that is going to make a

difference, this is an excellent place to volunteer to do that, as you see how much it helps people. Once you’re here for a while and you get to know the clients and then you don’t see the clients here anymore – everybody is cheering, “Hey, they got a job!” It’s rewarding in that way, just being able to help someone until they get back on their feet. Q: Anything else that you would like to share? A: My awesome volunteers here – they are awesome – they are dedicated and they are here all of the time. We have some who come when they can, but we have a regular core group here that’s unbelievable. They really are. And they work and they love the work. They’re just very caring individuals, and that’s refreshing – especially in this day and age when people are doing such evil things in the world – to see people enjoy actually helping other people. All of our volunteers are just great people. The Food Pantry is open to anyone in need either on a regular schedule or occasional assistance for short-term need or emergency need. Editor’s Note: Reed requested that we publish the Mission Statement of the Saugus United Parish Food Pantry: “Saugus United Parish Food Pantry is an all volunteer collaborative non-profit Religious Organization with a mission to ensure no one goes hungry in and around our community; to help supplement low-income and anyone in need with basic nutritional food items; and to serve our clients with compassion and respect.”

THE SOUNDS

OF SAUGUS H

By Mark Vogler

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

Happy Thanksgiving, Saugus! Best wishes to all of our readers for a safe and Happy Thanksgiving. It’s the time of the year when it behooves everyone to spend some time counting their blessings for the good things that fill their lives – family, friendships, good memories and good health. Last Friday, I had the chance to spend some time talking to Wendy Reed, the interim director of the Saugus United Parish Food Pantry, and a few of the other volunteers who help make life a little easier for Saugus and area families who are less fortunate than many of us. Wendy and the volunteers at the food pantry are the subject of this week’s “The Advocate Asks.”They are truly unsung heroes for the volunteer work they do helping families who need some help in making ends meet. Wheelabrator hearing next week Town residents who want to share their concerns – for or against Wheelabrator Technologies’ plans for expansion of its ash landfill near the trash-to-energy site on Route 107 – still have time to let the state Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) know how they feel. For the folks who want to testify publicly, they have that option a week from tomorrow (Thursday, Nov. 30) at 6:30 p.m. at the Saugus High School Auditorium on Pierce Memorial Drive in Saugus. Wheelabrator’s plans to expand its ash landfill have been one of the most contentious issues in the town since the plans became public in March of last year. There have been threats of lawsuits from both Wheelabrator and town officials. So, expect a large turnout at Saugus High next week. “It is important that many people attend the November 30th public hearing with the DEP. It is vital that the DEP hears the concerns of our community relating to our health and well-being,” Board of Selectmen Chair Debra Panetta wrote us in a recent email. “The landfill was supposed to be closed back in 1996 and capped with a grassy seed. Instead of taking steps to close the landfill, they are re-opening 39-Acres of previously capped land which is currently a bird habitat. Since that time, they have been working under a consent order, and have received 9 extensions. The incinerator and its adjacent landfill are located in an Area of Critical Environmental concern (ACEC). Coupled with that, they have an unlined ash landfill, which would never be allowed in today. Studies show that unlined landfills eventually leach into the groundwater and abutting wetlands. Let’s not forget the $7.5M settlement (environmental penalty) for various alleged violations of environmental regulations. This is a high risk area, which is vulnerable to sea level rise and storm surge. There is a potential release of lead, mercury, cadmium and other hazardous pollutants. My main concern is about the

On Nov. 1, the DEP issued a Provisional Decision that would allow Wheelabrator Saugus to dispose of an additional estimated 400,000 cubic yards of contaminated ash adjacent to the Rumney Marshes ACEC for many more years to come, according to “A Community Alert” issued by the Alliance for Health and Environment on the state’s provisional decision to allow expansion of the Wheelabrator Saugus ash landfill.

Christmas Cheer is near! A week from Friday – Dec. 1 – the town will host its Annual Tree Lighting Ceremony and Festivities. “Please join your family and friends and come out to celebrate the beginning of the holiday season as a community,”Town Manager Scott C. Crabtree said in a press release his office issued, barely a week before Thanksgiving – “This is one of our Town’s most unforgettable annual events, so I hope to see you all there.” Residents young and old are invited to Town Hall on Dec. 1 for a fun-filled evening with sleigh rides, a petting zoo, a moon bounce, hot chocolate, cookies, a meet and greet with Santa, entertainment, hayrides, story time and much more. Also exciting is the return of holiday trackless train rides, which will run weather permitting. Volunteers, the Department of Youth and Recreation, the Department of Public Works, the Building Maintenance Department and numerous other municipal employees have spent the past few months planning and organizing the action-packed night, which kicks off at 5 p.m. sharp. The tree lighting will take place at 7 p.m., and the evening will conclude by 8:30 p.m. Curbside leaf collection comFor more information, contact the Town Manager’s office at 781-231-4111. mences The Town of Saugus will hold sev“Showdown” cancelled eral more curbside leaf collection Town residents don’t have to bother showing up at Saugus Town Hall tonight days next month.
