Saugus High School student athlete shared the spotlight last Saturday night with a local attorney, an elementary school principal and an adjunct college professor in a special observance at the Saugus Public Library. Amanda Napoli, who is a National Honor Society member and president of the Saugus High Class of 2018, was among those honored as this year’s “Readers Make Good Leaders” award recipients in the library’s Third Annual Gala sponsored by the Saugus Public Library Foun-
dation. Napoli stood in front of a giant poster depicting her holding her book – “Fahrenheit 451” by Ray Bradbury – which was set up on easel on the library’s second floor. “This book was the first book I read in High School and it opened up my world to think more,”Napoli said in a brief speech that was inscribed on the poster. “The theme in the book is the symbol of rebirth; there is room for change … Reading opens up your world to new ideas and experiences without having to live through them,” she said. This year’s honorees also in-
cluded the following: • Attorney Nelson Chang, a former Town Meeting Member and School Committee member, who selected as his favorite book “20,000 Leagues Under the Sea” by Jules Verne. “I chose this book because I feel this book was the beginning of science fiction. The author, Verne, was ahead of his time. He wrote about submarines being powered by electricity, which was unknown at the time,” Chang said. “Looking forward to the future has always interested me.

Reading about the future fuels the imagination. Verne was also an environmentalist, something I, too, am interested in. Reading can take you anywhere you want to go. Reading helps develop the mind,” he said. Chang is a Saugus Lions Club member and Director of Greater Lynn Senior Services, Inc., SBEC and Friends of the Senior Center. • Veterans Memorial Elementary School Principal Tracey Ragucci, a 20-year veteran educator in Saugus, cited as her favorite book“Oh, the Places You’ll Go” by Dr. Seuss. “I chose this book because it represents much of how I approach life. It teaches that there are always obstacles in life, but you can overcome them if you give it your all,” Ragucci said. “I teach students to aim high, to shoot for bigger and better. I encourage children to give 110%, make good choices and work hard. Reading is important because it develops the mind. It brings you to the next level. You

~THE ADVOCATE ASKS~
Christopher Tarantino reflects on what it took this fall to revive the Belmonte Middle School cross-country program, which had been dormant for the past four years kindergarten at the Lynnhurst Elementary School this fall. Belmonte Middle School had cross-country for boys and girls up until 2012 – averaging about 40 student athletes per year, according to Tarantino. Currently he works as an education management professional at Shore Educational Collaborative in Chelsea. Some highlights of the interview follow.
months ago, you only had three kids doing cross-country. And you said you needed 20 kids to bring back cross-country as a Belmonte Middle School sport. How did things work out? How many kids do you have now? A: Things have worked out great, as we have 24 kids in the program and have been an official team since mid-September.
Q: Okay, Chris. A couple of

A SUCCESSFUL REVIVAL: Christopher Tarantino, left, credited close friend, running buddy and mentor Stephen Boudreau, right, with helping to restore the cross-country program at Belmonte Middle School this fall (Saugus Advocate file photo by Mark E. Vogler)
Editor’s Note: For this week, we interviewed Christopher Tarantino, who talked about how he engineered a resurgence of the cross-country program at the Belmonte Middle School, with
the help of two assistant coaches, the school’s interim principal, school administration, parents and the students who signed up. Tarantino, 45, a 1990 Saugus High School graduate, has a rep-

utation for mentoring young athletes in track and cross-country, at the Middle School and the High School level. He himself learned as an athlete under the late and legendary Sachems Coach William L. MacNeill, for whom the track and field behind the Belmonte Middle School was named. Tarantino also said he benefited from close friend, running buddy and mentor Stephen Boudreau, a 1965 Saugus High School graduate and track star who later was Tarantino’s basketball coach. Tarantino, who previously coached cross-country at Belmonte for 15 years, is the father of a five-yearold daughter, Naomi, who began

ASKS | from page 3 Q: Did you meet expectations or did you surpass your expectations? A: We met my expectations with surpassing the required 20 kids to get the program reinstated. Q: Please share with me, Chris, the accomplishments of this young and revived program? I understand, Saugus hosted its first cross-country meet in several years. A: The accomplishment has been getting the kids to buy into putting in the work required to be successful in this sport – gaining experience and having fun. Q: What do you credit to the revival of the sport at the Belmonte? How were you able to field a team of kids on short notice? A: I credit the revival of crosscountry to many people and several collaborative efforts: Chase Ledbury [8th grader, team captain, team’s top runner], who has been training and building to this point for the past two years and has been an ambassador for the sport to his peers. Superintendent Dr. David DeRuosi along with the Athlet-

Myra Monto [Belmonte Principal] and her leadership and support – assisting us by getting the word out and making it clear she would do whatever she could to make it happen – understanding it to be a great thing to offer to the students. James Bunnell [athletic director], when hired late summer, immediately fully backed the effort to bring the team to fruition and worked diligently to create a schedule for us despite the season starting already at that point. The recruiting efforts of Coach Steve Boudreau and Coach Todd Ledbury. Q: From what I understand, this is you and your running buddy and former coach, Stephen Boudreau, doing essentially pro bono work. Is that right? A: In the event there weren’t enough kids to bring the team back formally, we were prepared, as in the past, to volunteer to train students interested in cross-country and function as a club team. However, now with it a traditional school-sponsored team, there will be a modest stipend in which we will split – but it’s never about the money for us

as our reward is seeing the fruits of our labor paying off and getting kids up and moving. Q: And how many hours a week do you guys put in working with the kids? A: Coaches are available 18 hours a week at various times, Monday through Saturday. Q: What’s the mix of kids? Boys and girls? Grades? A: There are 13 boys and 11
girls on the roster with seven 8th graders, eight 7th graders and nine 6th graders. Q: What’s the draw for crosscountry at the Belmonte? What do these kids expect when they sign up? A: The draw is the opportunity to work within a team with great teammates and dedicated coaches that set goals in order to achieve success all while having fun through socialization. They expect to learn, gain new experiences, compete, have fun, meet new people, get in better shape and create lasting memories. Q: What are your expectations
as a coach and mentor? How do you sustain the interest in the program and build on it? A: My expectations as a coach will always be high. There are no cutting corners and you must put in the work. Having the pleasure to coach previously, I expect to uphold the tradition of success laid before us, but first and foremost expect our studentathletes to be the best school citizens they can be. Q: I understand you have gotten great support from the interim principal and some other people. Please tell me about it. A: As I mentioned before, Myra Monto and her leadership and support has been instrumental, assisting us to get the word out and making it clear she would do whatever she could to make it happen, while understanding it to be a great thing to offer to the students. Also, the parents were tremendous navigating the uncharted waters – putting trust in the coaches and supporting our efforts as well as being available to help coordinate home meets. It takes a lot of hands to make things work, and we had a sufficient amount of help. Q: So how would you rate the program? Are you ahead of schedule?

A: Things are going very well. I would say we are right on time. Q: How many meets have you had? And how many do you have scheduled? A: We have had a generous amount of six meets [four away; two home at Breakheart] to date, having faced eight teams [two of the six were trimeets]. We next travel to Stage Fort Park in Gloucester, Thursday, October 26th, to partake in the Jim Munn Invitational then conclude our season at NEC [Northeastern Conference] meet at Brooksby Farm
the program right now will stay with it. The optimism is based on the ability to sustain ourselves moving forward. Q: Looking ahead to next year, how many kids do you hope to have signed up for the cross-country program? A: Retention is key. I’d like to say our number would nearly double. It would be realistic to see our numbers go to at least 40. We’ve had more in the past. Fifty was usually our annual norm, and I think our high was 60. Q: Any plans for programs after the cross-country season or during next spring and summer to sustain or build upon
leading up to next fall. Q: What kind of feedback have you gotten from the administration and the community about the revival of crosscountry at the Belmonte? A: The School Committee – Jeannie Meredith, Linda Gaieski and Elizabeth Marchese – have publicly expressed their support. They have been on board with this since Day One. And they have all personally given me well-wishing and have extended themselves in whatever they could do to move this forward. Q: What do you stress as the benefits of this program to kids who might be interested in cross-country? A: I played and coached in many youth sports. It’s great to play amongst your friends, but scholastic sports is a different thing: to represent your school is special and it’s a great honor. I think introducing scholas-
tic sports to young athletes is ball player or baseball player, a wonderful thing. And they it’s great to cross-train. Q: Can kids still come out for can get into shape. It may not be their number one sport, but whether you’re a basket-

in Peabody Wednesday, November 1st. Q: How have things worked out in the meets? Have you won any? If not, do you have any promising runners who have done well? A: It’s a very competitive league. We have a young team. We just don’t have the depth to look at outcomes right now. We’re just trying to get experience. But we have seen enough of the teams to know that Chase Ledbury is one of the best in the conference and statewide. He’s finished first in a few of the meets. He’s an eighth-grader. We also have two girls who are top runners for us, too: Victoria Quagenti and Maria Limbanovnos. They have distinguished themselves as our top runners and competed at a high level. They’re both eighth-graders. Their talent has set them apart. Maria has acclimated herself well for someone who is new to the country. Q: So, as you reflect on this season, have you met the program goals you set? And are you optimistic about next year? A: I haven’t given it any thoughts, as we are still focused on the season. As far as being optimistic about the future, I am. The kids who are in
the interest in the program? A: We’re going to look to pilot a program at the elementary school level this spring, like a morning running club – this would be for the fourth and fifth graders. We were hoping to do it coinciding with the fall season – things kind of got tabled for the spring – then there will be multiple options for all ages in the summer months,

couragement – a steady presence at practice and kind of augmenting my message. Lastly, I told the eighth graders to look back fondly on the program as it grows and in the years to come as a result of that resurgence off the heels of their efforts these past few months. Without that, none of this would be possible. I also want to express encouragement to the sixth and seventh graders to commit to a vision and grow simultaneously with the program. And they’ll get a lot of it.
THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, October 27, 2017
ANNOUNCEMENT | from page 6 landale PTO, I currently serve as the Box Top Coordinator. I want to set a good example for the youth of the community and I believe the best way to do so is to be a “doer” rather than a “sayer”. Children are always watching and pick up on the good and bad that parents and adults do. I will be part of the solution. Children will emulate our behavior and I believe it is our responsibility to make sure we are being the best every day. While we, and children, will make mistakes, it is important to highlight the positive behavior and not emphasize the negative. The importance is not how many times someone falls but how many times they get back up and continue to move forward. As a parent that spends a majority of my time at a rink or field, I have heard parents speak candidly about what they feel needs to be improved in our school district. I will be that voice to assure that these issues are heard and addressed. A common complaint seems to center around standardized testing. While I believe that standardized testing has its
merits, I do not believe that is the true barometer of a child’s learning or a district’s success or failure. While we can teach a child to test well to make the district appear to be successful, in my mind we are not serving that child unless they truly understand the material being taught. The School Committee needs to work towards a common goal. While each member will ultimately have differing opinions as to how to achieve that goal, the end goal MUST be the same. If that is not the case, the district could end up like a rudderless ship in a storm. We are at a unique time in the history of the Saugus School District and we need to capitalize of this opportunity. The Town took the first step in voting in favor of the debt exclusion for the new Middle/High School Combination building but that alone will not bring success. I will be the voice to educate Saugus families of the improvements to the educational plan and assure that most of concerns are not only heard but included where appropriate. On November 7, 2017, I re-
spectfully request your vote for me, Marc Magliozzi for School Committee.

y name is Assunta Palomba, known as Sue. I am announcing my candidacy for Selectman for the Town of Saugus. I was named after my grandmother but my parents always called me Susie. I was born in Avellino, Italy, and I was 6 months old when my parents and I came to the United States, so we moved to Wakefield, Massachusetts. I have 3 siblings and I am the oldest. I went to first grade speaking Italian and no English; however, I quickly learned to speak English. I loved school and my classmates. I attended High School at Nazareth Academy in Wakefield where I was elected President of the Student Council. We raised money for many organizations, including the Walk for Hunger. At Newbury College in Boston, I studied business, and then transferred to Merrimack College where I earned my Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Management. In 1989, I married my husband Americo. In 1991, our daughter Rosa was born and then, in 1994, our sec-
ond daughter Melisa was born. We thought about buying our own house. I discovered a passion for real estate and earned my real estate license. Now I wanted to buy a house! Saugus was our first choice, as I always loved Saugus; it is close to everything. One morning I drove on Appleton Street to look at a house and fell in love with the location. We bought our house in Saugus in 2000 and have resided there ever since. My daugh-
ters went to the Saugus Public Schools and were also involved with soccer. When my daughters were young, I loved the community and town very much. It had everything we needed: grocery stores, department stores, churches, beautiful landscaping, close proximity to Boston, and public transportation. I started volunteering at the Saugus Senior Center where I served lunch and met so many wonderful people. At the Senior Center, I met Bill Porthier who introduced me to the Saugus Elks and I started volunteering there.

“I’m so happy we have this board that brought Scott back,” Board of Selectmen Chairman Debra Panetta said, referring to the current board’s decision to rehire Crabtree after they successfully engineered a March 2015 recall of four of the selectmen who had fired the town manager. “Without that leadership, we wouldn’t be here today,” Panetta said. “I’m so proud to be with my

Environmental vision for Saugus Nine Board of Selectmen candidates share their views with Saugus Action Volunteers for the Environment Editor’s Note: Saugus Action Volunteers for the Environment (SAVE) asked each of the candidates for Board of Selectmen to provide a brief statement addressing their environmental vision for
the town. The following are highlights as submitted by each of the candidates, who are listed alphabetically by their last name. The Saugus Advocate includes whether candidates attended the Oct. 23
Candidates Forum and whether not attend the SAVE Candidates Forum. they are a member of SAVE. My vision and support for SauSCOTT A. BRAZIS: Incum- gus includes protecting and enbent member and Vice Chair of hancing our environment for the Board of Selectmen. He did ourselves and for the future gen-
didn’t “feel like I have a job,” and “This is my life.” The room, food and soft drinks, except for alcoholic beverages that guests ordered, were paid for by the town, according to Crabtree. “Every year, we have something. This is something to recognize residents and get people together. It’s to show appreciation to some people who don’t realize their importance and roles they play to make this town a better place,” the town
manager said. There were no campaign flyers, stickers or signs inside the function room, as the event was not intended to be a political rally for the five incumbent selectmen and three School Committee members who will be running for reelection in the Nov. 7 town elections. But in the parking lot in front of Prince Pizzeria, a big campaign sign was attached to a car roof, proclaiming“VOTE TEAM, Debra, Jeff, Jen, Mark, Scott.”

ANNOUNCEMENT | from page 8 Saugus High School seniors. We have a Soccer Shoot and Hoop Shoot for the children where they have the opportunity to compete on the national level – fun that strengthens our community focus. I have a 10 month old grandson named Giovanni. I have a unique perspective of our town, having sold real estate for the past 18 years in Saugus. Because of my profession, I often discuss the positive attributes of Saugus and can see what we need to work on. Having served in leadership roles throughout my life, I have developed superb communica-
tion skills and attention to detail, and these are abilities I can bring to the citizens of Saugus. My parents got up every morning to go work and to make sure we had opportunities that they never dreamed of, such as a college education. I would love to see more of our Saugus children to go to college and I am willing to work with politicians, preachers, parents, and students to make that happen. With my varied experience, new ideas, fresh perspective, and innovating thinking, I want to help to revitalize our town, strengthen our schools, support our police
and firefighters, school systems, and programs that serve our veterans and seniors, all while budgeting within our means. As more years go by, I want to give back to the Town of Saugus. It’s a great feeling. I see the Board of Selectman as another opportunity where I can give back to the town that has given my family and me so much. I will be the voice of the citizens of Saugus and bring their concerns directly to the Board of Selectman when elected. I look forward to being your selectman.

ways advocated and appreciated the environment. I was fortunate enough as a young adult to have spent approximately a decade as a warden at Prankers Pond. I am proud to have supported and advocated for the residents of Saugus and the environment on these recent initiatives: 1) The recent purchase of two town electric cars and a public electric charger at the DPW through Green Grant monies. 2) The adopted grease trap regulation that will protect residents, businesses, and the environment within the Town of Saugus. The fats, oils, and grease (FOG) has been an expensive problem that has plagued our sewer system, environment, and the ratepayers of Saugus for decades. Establishments that fall under these regulations will all be held to the same standards. This regulation will help protect the ratepayers from incurring costly repairs due to a lack of consistent regulations preventing damage from FOG to the Town’s sewer infrastructure. 3) The Board of Selectmen’s policy supporting the residents of Saugus and specifically East Saugus that opposes any additional forms of combustion of solid waste that will yield additional air and ash emissions – no third burner from Wheelabrator (RESCO). The policy also supports the ash landfill’s closure by Dec. 31, 2016 – a closure date specified in the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection’s 2014 solid waste fa-
cility report. 4) The Town’s recent approval in becoming a designated Green Community. Saugus will gain substantial energy, economic, and environmental benefits from participating in this program. Being a designated Green Community will give Saugus the opportunity to apply for and receive grant funding for green initiatives. It will also reduce energy usage and minimize taxpayer energy costs. This is a tremendous opportunity for the Town to make these important improvements as it becomes greener and more energy efficient. As part of the application requirements the Town had to complete the following: a) Provide zoning for the asof-right siting in renewable or alternative energy generating facilities, research and development facilities or manufacturing facilities. b) Adopt an expedited application and permitting process under which the renewable or alternative energy facilities may be sited within the municipality. c) Adopt a comprehensive, five-year Energy Reduction Plan designed to reduce that baseline by 20 percent after those five years. d) Purchase only fuel-efficient vehicles for municipal use. e) Minimize life-cycle costs during construction and development by utilizing energy efficiency, water conservation and other renewable or alternative energy technologies. 5) The completion of the Open
Space Plan to meet the Commonwealth’s conditional approval requirements. 6) The Town’s continued sewer system infrastructure upgrades which will eliminate discharge into the Saugus River and comply with the Town’s Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) Administrative Consent Order (ACO). 7) The Town’s continued leak detection and water main replacement programs which will conserve water and protect the infrastructure of our water system. 8) I support smart growth in our economic development in helping protect the natural systems that support life. The adoption of the building code bylaws known as the ‘stretch’ energy code which promotes more energy efficient building standards to achieve approximately a 20% improvement in building energy performance. By creating vibrant places that attract people and investment, growth can be directed away from forests and other important Town resources. Smart growth is also about strengthening protections for natural areas themselves and improving the environment where we live. 9) The solar farm on the capped landfill site behind the town’s Department of Public Works (DPW) building on Main Street. This would include a 20year agreement for the purchase of discounted electricity produced by a system-purchase power agreement. The solar panels occupy six acres of the 20-acre site and would generate approximately 1,000 megawatts of power. I also support the town considering mounting solar panels on the roofs of the Veterans Memorial Elementary School, the Belmonte Middle School, and being PV ready for the new Middle-High School – projects that would produce an additional 700-1400 kilowatts of solar energy. This is a great use of land for a green purpose of otherwise non-usable landfill site and rooftops with the added benefit of not having adverse impacts to the environment. JEFFREY V. CICOLINI: Incumbent member of the Board of Selectmen. He did not attend the SAVE Candidates Forum. I have always been environmentally aware to a certain degree however in the past decade I have become significantly more passionate and outspoken about protecting our environment, our people, our earth! In today’s fast paced society everyone is trying to do everything more efficiently and effectively and unfortunately sometimes the impact on our environment is not taken into account. Protection of our environment and

THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, October 27, 2017
ENVIRONMENTAL | from page 14 the natural resources is imperative in order to make sure our future generations can enjoy the air we breathe and the land we occupy. Education needs to start as early as possible for our children. From renewable energy, solar farms and the importance of the capping of landfills to promoting recycling, the use of hybrid vehicles and encouraging the purchase of energy efficient household items such as appliances, toilets and hot water heaters there are countless ways for our residents to partake in the protection of our environmental and its natural resources. I feel my actions speak louder than words, for example, every property I own contains energy efficient appliances, water heaters and furnaces. I began the process of installing low flush toilets a couple of years ago which has been completed. I made the motion at the Board of Selectmen’s meeting to reaffirm the board’s position statement preventing any further expansion of the ash landfills on Rt. 107. This motion passed 5-0. I attended and spoke at the Revere City Council meeting over the summer to emphasize my support for Representative RoseLee Vincent’s bill (H.771) surrounding the same topic re: preventing any further expansion of the ash landfills. I wrote a letter as a citizen of Saugus and officer/Treasurer of the Point of Pines Yacht Club to our legislators to emphasize the importance of their support of Representative Vincent’s legislation. My family has been recycling since it started in Saugus and I am proud to say this has been passed on to my children who take part in the process of separating our materials each week before trash and recycling containers are put by the curb. I fully support the proposed policy by the Saugus Board of Health pertaining to the grease trap regulations for places of business (FOG policy). I have not supported any waivers applied for by businesses as this policy was being developed, instead we attached a condition that the company must comply with the regulations in the future. In closing I would say that awareness of the importance of environmental protection is of great importance to me and my family. I am always searching for ways to increase my participation in energy conservation and resource protection. I am excited to know that the new High School/Middle School will be a LEED certified, energy efficient project. If I am re-elected to the Board of Selectman I would like to work with the Town Manager and our recycling coordina-
tor to explore items to further our stance as a green community. This includes looking into the pros and cons of single stream recycling as well as researching grants (beyond the ones we already received), that may be available to Saugus to continue to update our facilities to more energy efficient platforms. MICHAEL A. COLLER: He did not attend the SAVE Candidates Forum. As a current Conservation Commission Member and Library Board of Trustee, it is with great pleasure I announce my Candidacy for Selectman and kindly ask for your support and vote on November 7, 2017. My vision for our community is to protect and appreciate our resources through diligent litigious reviews and subsequent awareness campaigns generating a “newly invigorated” interest in appreciating our environment. Protection of our wetlands, estuaries and all other natural resources is essential not only to the fragile ecosystem but to our citizens and visitors alike. A well maintained, monitored and conserved environment allows for the animals of which includes birds, fish and all other species to procreate, spawn and develop. All this allows for the enjoyment of viewing and education for all. Lastly, for our Town’s people that earn a living from harvesting from the land, waterways and ocean, a strategic monitoring will add to the Town’s economy and maintain small businesses. Thank you for your time and consideration. JENNIFER E. D’EON: Incumbent member of the Board of Selectmen. She is a member of SAVE and she did attend the SAVE Candidates Forum. My environmental vision for the Town of Saugus is to find and create more green/open spaces, such as a Town Common or Green and further modernize our current parks and open space to the demands of today. Green space use has evolved and we need to catch up. This requires Strategic Planning for our green/open space. Green spaces such as parks and sports fields are vitally important to the health and wellbeing of our residents. These areas as well as forests, wooded areas, natural meadows and wetlands like the Rumney Marsh, represent a fundamental component of our town’s ecosystem. Green areas are beneficial in many ways; they facilitate physical activity and relaxation, and form a buffer or barrier from noise. Trees and other flora produce the oxygen we breathe, and help filter out harmful air pollution, including airborne particulate mat-
ter. Local bodies of water such as lakes, ponds, rivers and fountains, moderate temperatures, in other words they help cool us down, unlike large, open paved areas like parking lots or concrete plazas. Open space is any open piece of land that is undeveloped (has no structures on it) and is easily accessible to the public. Green space (land that is partly or completely covered with grass, trees, shrubs, or other vegetation) would be set apart for recreational or aesthetic purposes in an otherwise urban environment. We need to interface the urban areas with the green space in a well-designed way to maximize access and use. Public parks and gardens play a critical role in cooling cities. They give us safe routes for walking and cycling around town as well as providing space for physical or recreational activities, social interaction and community gatherings. Recent estimates show that physical inactivity, linked to poor walkability and lack of access to recreational areas, accounts for 3.3% of global deaths. You need to be able to get to the green/open spaces in a safe manner, like the rail trail or other trails and walkways along with a good system of sidewalks. Green spaces also are important to mental health. Having access to green spaces can reduce
health problems, improve overall well-being, and aid in treatment of mental illness. Some analysis suggests that physical activity in a natural environment can help remedy mild depression and reduce physiological stress indicator. What could be more relaxing than enjoying a beautiful, active park on a sunny day with family and friends? Prioritizing Green/Open space is an important part of the economic development of Saugus. It will add beauty and value to our Town. MARK D. MITCHELL: Incumbent member of the Board of Se-
lectmen. He did not attend the SAVE Candidates Forum. My candidacy is based upon continuing to restore Saugus in all forms. My concern for Saugus fully extends to the environmental issues our Town and neighborhoods are currently facing as well as strategic “green” planning by studying, designing, constructing and implementing energy efficient activities and infrastructure for our future. I continue to stand with the residents of East Saugus and do

Saugus golfer Moore headed to state tourney finals By Julian Cardillo
augus senior Nick Moore is the first golf player in 14 years to represent the Sachems at the state tournament finals. Moore, a four-year starter in golf who also plays for the varsity hockey team, finished the season 11-5-3 and shot 78 at the state tournament. “He’s an excellent ball striker,” said Saugus coach Jeff Mitchell.
“And he’s a great kid. All my kids are great kids. We had a very good year this year.” Overall, the Sachems were 14-5 and qualified for the state tournament faster this season than ever before. Moore only had two losses in the Northeast Conference, which is widely regarded as Saugus senior Nick Moore will the most competitive, if not the represent the Sachems at the toughest, golf conference in state golf tournament finals. Massachusetts.
“It’s extremely hard to qualify for the state tournament finals,” Mitchell said. “In our division, only two golfers got in. He worked hard this year. He can really get it out there.” On Monday the state tournament finals will be held in Great Barrington. Mitchell plans to take Moore prior to the tournament, on Sunday, to see the course. Mitchell likes his player’s chances of coming away with a top fin-
ish. He is the first golfer in Mitchell’s tenure as coach to reach the state tournament finals. “He needs to go out there and play smart; if he keeps the ball in play he should do well,” said Mitchell. “The biggest thing in high school is putting egos in check. Sometimes they just want to bang it out there. But his teammates are all psyched for him. Nick is leading the way … we’ll see what happens.”
Saugus girls’ soccer team clinches NEC-south
he Saugus girls’ soccer team is now 16-0 and clinched the Northeast Conference south after beating Malden 3-0 this week. Allie Kotkowski bagged a brace against the Golden Tornadoes, then Allie Leblanc scored off a free kick. For Coach Chris Coviello, whose team has two games left in the regular season, including a Friday night clash against Gloucester, staying undefeated is a new goal. “I suppose it’s the next thing on the agenda,” Coviello said. “We’re headed for the playoffs, and now we just want to keep it up after winning the NEC south.” Saugus beat Gloucester, 3-0, earlier this season, but Coviello felt the Fishermen were better than the final score suggests. “Teams have been playing us closer and harder the second time around,” he said. “They’re a tough team. They don’t give up a lot of goals … We keep improving, but we have to make sure we keep improving. We just have to keep getting better.”

Football Sachems laments slow start vs Swampscott By Julian Cardillo
he Saugus Sachems let a slow start ruin their outing against Swampscott last Friday, as they fell 44-19 on the gridiron in their final regular season game. Swampscott recorded three consecutive touchdowns before Saugus finally came up with an answer. For Sachems coach Anthony Nalen, starting off on the wrong foot put his team in a hole that was too tough to exit. “I definitely thought we did not play a complete game against Swampscott; we came out slow and didn’t play for 44 minutes,” said Nalen. “Swampscott is a fantastic team that’s well-coached and understands how to win; you
have to play from the first whistle to the last in order to be in a game like that.” The highlights for Saugus were their three touchdowns, namely through the play of quarterback Mike Mabee and receiver Christian Correia. Mabee had a solid afternoon, going 18 for 32 with 214 yards and two touchdown passes. Correia had nine catches for 114 years and caught both of Mabee’s touchdown passes. “Mike [Mabee] has done some great things for us this year,” said Nalen. “He continues to spread the ball around to all of his receivers. I think his performance in the huddle and off the field is just as good as his performance on the field … He has been a great
leader for us and we will lean on him in our final four games of the season.” Mabee hit Correia with a seven-yard pass in the end zone in the second quarter to get the Sachems on the board. Javier Martinez-Moretta kicked through the extra point. Saugus’s final two scores came in the fourth. Mabee punched a score in himself with an eight-yard run, then connected with Correia in the end zone again off a six-yard pass. The Sachems will look to improve on Saturday when they travel to Pentucket for a nonplayoff game. Nalen is looking for a better response from his team and plans on using Saturday’s game and the remainder of the season to prepare his team for the future.
“Pentucket are very similar to us in that they play a very hard schedule; they are battle-tested and have plenty of athletes to dominate a football game,” Nalen said. “We need an early start this Saturday and for our defense to play physical.” “We want to finish off the sea-
son on a high note; we know there are some games coming up that we should be able to compete in,” Nalen added. “The most important thing is laying down the foundation for years to come, and it starts with these three non-playoff games before entering Thanksgiving.”

Campaign sign chicanery? I got a few calls this week from folks who wanted me to be aware of various alleged funny business dealing with campaign signs. There was one report that a selectman or two warned supporters of a certain candidate to take their signs down “because it was a bad look.” I talked to one person who said he was pressured to remove his sign, but didn’t want to talk about it on the record. Well, no newspaper is going to run that kind of story unless you are quoting somebody on the record. Running a story without that kind of confirmation would be legally dangerous and reckless. For what it’s worth over the years, political camps have been known to plant those kinds of stories to get an edge for their candidate. State agencies that investigate such allegations would avoid getting involved so close to the election. And a guy I know who works inside the state Office of Campaign & Political Finance won’t touch any allegations within 120 days of an election. “And the purpose of that is so the OCPF doesn’t become a political football before the election. That’s not to say that such allegations are false. Sometimes, they happen. But you better have somebody backing it up if you’re going to be a whistleblower or write about it. THE SAVE Candidate’s Forum Speaking of elections, it was too bad there wasn’t a better turnout out by the Monday forum sponsored by Saugus Action Volunteers for the Environment. Only five of the candidates showed up, and SAVE has had this in the works for weeks. The one thing I liked about the forum is that the questions were not given to the candidates in advance. The beauty of that is that a candidate’s response would show just how knowledgeable they are or aren’t about environmental issues. If that’s an important matter for a voter, then it’s probably worth

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.

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: 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 Street, 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.

ENVIRONMENTAL | from page 15 not support any expansion of a third burner or the land ash fill at the Wheelabrator (RESCO) site. My record on advocating for the residents of Saugus and the environment also includes: 1) The adoption of grease trap regulation that protects residents, businesses, and the environment within the Town of Saugus from blockages of the Town’s sanitary sewer system caused by grease, kitchen oils, fats (FOG) and other substances discharged from food establishments in Town. 2) Becoming a designated Green Community through the Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs’ Green Communities Designation and Grant Program. Being a designated Green Community has given Saugus the opportunity to apply for and receive grant funding for green initiatives. It will also reduce energy usage and minimize taxpayer energy costs. Receiving this designation has helped reduce the town’s carbon footprint, which reduces our energy usage, as well. Less energy usage means more money for running the Town and providing services to our residents. 3) The Sewer infrastructure improvements and requirements surrounding the Town’s (ACO) Administrative Consent Order 4) The Board of Selectmen’s policy supporting a decrease in air emissions and ash disposal. The policy states that the Board of Selectmen opposes any additional forms of combustion of solid waste that will yield additional air and ash emissions. As one of your Selectmen, I have and will continue to work to preserve and improve the quality of life in Saugus, protect our environment and neighborhoods, and enhance our property values. ASSUNTA A. PALOMBA: She is a member of SAVE and did attend the Candidates Forum. As selectman, my goal is to help to create cleaner neighborhoods in Saugus by working together with our neighbors to improve local environmental quality. A clean, healthy and well-protected environment supporting a sustainable society and economy is my vision for Saugus. The CHaRM center behind the DPW has expanded since 2015 and my goal is to maintain and improve on a great asset to our town. Working in the community, I see that people love open space. We are fortunate to have open space such as Breakheart Reservation and Prankers Pond; I want to help Saugus preserve as much open space as possible. It’s important to the quality of life in our town to maintain our parks. My experience at organizing vol-
unteering work will be a valuable asset in the effort to make our town better and to inspire citizens to appreciate and maintain our resources, as well. Enjoying these beautiful resources help us to maintain both physical and mental health. DEBRA C. PANETTA: Incumbent member and Chairman of the Board of Selectmen. She is a member of SAVE and did attend the SAVE Candidates Forum. My environmental vision has been shaped by three decades of involvement in the environmental affairs of Saugus. I am currently the President of the Saugus River Watershed Council, past-President of the Saugus Action Volunteers for the Environment, member of the Alliance for Health and the Environment, member of the Conservation Law Foundation, and a 12 year past member of the Tree Committee. I have also been endorsed (again) by the Sierra Club. The Sierra Club’s mission is to protect the earth by promoting the responsible use of the earth’s ecosystems and resources, as well as to educate, protect, and restore the quality of the environment. My vision for Saugus includes a clean, healthy and attractive environment. The air we breathe, the space we share, the energy we consume, and the water we protect are all critical aspects of my vision. Most important is my personal belief that as a Selectman, my actions will not result in environmental degradation. I have not, and will not allow any proposal or project that would result in direct or eventual environmental harm. I have not, and will not support a project for any Saugus neighborhood that I would not want in my own neighborhood. I believe a healthy environment equals a healthy Saugus. I believe my actions as a sitting Selectman are consistent with my belief that we should do everything we can to protect our valuable natural resources to ensure a healthy Saugus for future generations. Natural areas such as Rumney Marsh, Prankers Pond, the Saugus River, and Breakheart Reservation help promote and preserve healthy neighborhoods, provide opportunities for recreation, and are an important part of our town’s economy. While I support economic development, I believe that such economic development must balance the protection of our valuable natural resources with opportunities for quality growth and appropriate redevelopment. The people of Saugus know my position on RESCO. They know I will not support any expansion of the RESCO facili-
ty. Back in 2013 when I learned that RESCO was considering expanding its ash residue landfill, I wrote a policy regarding waste to energy, ash disposal, and solid waste facilities in Saugus that was presented to and approved unanimously by the Board of Selectmen. In 2015, this policy was again voted (unanimously) by the current Board of Selectmen, solidifying our stance on a healthy environment. This detailed policy states that the Town of Saugus would encourage and support that which would result in a net decrease in air emissions and ash disposal. The policy further states that Saugus is opposed to any additional forms of combustion of solid waste that would yield additional air and ash emissions and that we support existing dates for ash landfill closure established by the Commonwealth. Upon adoption, this policy was sent to appropriate elected and appointed state officials. I believe Saugus can realize an increase in recycling. Currently, our recycling rate is approximately 30%. If we include the drop-off days, that percentage increases to about 40%. With our new CHaRM center (Center for Hard to Recycle Materials) which is located at the Main Street landfill, we are able to increase recycling while saving the taxpayers money. This results in more accessible recycling, keeping items out of the incineration process. Not only is this a first for Saugus, but it is a first for Massachusetts. Keeping hazardous materials out of the waste stream is better for the environment and our public health, and is more efficient and convenient than having scheduled “hazardous waste” drop off days. I would also like to see efforts within Massachusetts deal with the issue of recycling styrofoam. It is perplexing how the take-out white containers and styrofoam cups have recycling symbols on them, but there is no facility in Massachusetts that recycles this material. I spoke to the Solid Waste Recycling Coordinator about doing a one-day Styrofoam drop off. I also support the shredding and hazardous item town events that truly remove items from the waste stream. My goal is to always do the right thing for the environment while extending the taxpayers’ dollars. While I am a Saugus Selectman, our environment will continue to be an area of focus. A thoughtful and proactive approach to our environment is good for homeowners, neighborhoods, and businesses. Protecting and enriching our environment does not have to be radical or painful. It requires skilled staff, innovative ideas, and leaders who have vision. I believe my record proves that I have the vision needed to continue providing a balanced approach to protecting Saugus’

Cutlip. Bob was the son of Myron (Ted) Harmon and Edith (Campbell) Harmon, and is survived by two sisters, Ethelyn Harmon and Alice Bada Mosher. He is predeceased by brother Myron (Ted) Harmon Jr. and sister Edith Nason Sykes. Bob leaves behind many dear in-laws, nieces, nephews, and friends. Robert Harmon was born in Arlington, MA, on September 23, 1937. He attended Arlington Schools and later was a student at “The Actor’s Workshop” in Boston. That led to his appearances as Judas in “The Christus,” a passion play. He also worked with The Hovey Players, Poet’s Theater, and The Martha’s Vineyard Summer Theatre. In 1959, he became Dangerous Dan and Captain Gallant, as well as other characters, at Pleasure Island, Wakefield.
