Cancer victims inspire Saugus’s Chelsea Phelps to pedal in Pan-Mass Challenge – again By Mark E. Vogler


n a hot weekend in August, a two-day, 162-mile bicycle ride from Wellesley to Provincetown can be a torturous trip that can give any rider second thoughts about any similar future endeavors. “The two years I’ve ridden, I get tired and cranky and say, ‘I’m never going to ride again,’” Chelsea Phelps said of her previous experiences pedaling in the PanMass Challenge. “But once you realize what a cancer survivor goes through, you reconsider,” said Phelps, 27, one of five Saugus residents who are registered to ride in this

A LOT TO RIDE FOR: Chelsea Phelps says there is no shortage of good reasons for her to participate in the two-day, 162-mile Pan-Mass Challenge, a bike-a-thon to raise money for cancer research and treatment at Dana-Farber Cancer institute. More than 6,000 cyclists raised more than $47 million last year.

When the going gets tough pedaling up a series of hills down on Cape Cod, Phelps said she draws her inspiration from the smiling young boy she sees standing on the side of the road holding the yellow sign“I’m alive because of you.” Phelps recalled another motivating sight – a car filled with “kids who are bald from chemo who are waving at you.”“This helps to make you try harder,” she said.

An interview with Paul E. Kenworthy on interesting stories about the Saugus Iron Works National Historic Site Editor’s Note: For this week’s interview, we sat down with Paul E. Kenworthy, a park ranger with a deep passion for history who takes visitors on tours at the Saugus Iron Works National Historic Site and answers questions about the first successful integrated iron works in North America, which was established in 1646. Kenworthy, 62, is in his third season at the iron works. He was born in Providence, R.I., and grew up in Norton, Mass. A 1972 Norton High School graduate, Kenworthy earned his bachelor’s degree in European History in 1977 from Connecticut College in New London, where he met his future wife and Saugus native Laura Eisener. She is president of the Saugus Historical Society. Kenworthy got his Master of Business Administration in 1979 at the State University of New York at Albany. Since 1991 he has been a Saugus resident. Kenworthy belongs to a number of groups with historical missions, including the Saugus Historical Society, where he serves as vice president and has been a member since 1994. He is camp

commander of the Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War, which meets at GAR Hall in Lynn monthly. He helped found and is in charge of the SalemTrayned Band, a reenactment group that dresses up in period costumes similar to the militia companies of the Massachusetts Bay Colony in 1629. Every year the group participates in several events; it began as an American Civil War reenacting group. Some highlights of this week’s interview follow. Q: Okay, Paul.

How many people have jobs where strangers come up to them and tell them how wonderful the place they work is and how wonderful the job they do is? Q: At minimum, what’s the

RIDING | from page 2 Aunt’s death spurred involvement Phelps has been involved with the PMC for seven years – the first four years as a volunteer at the lunch stop in Dighton Rehoboth. Then she decided to buy a bike and ride with her mother, Dawn Phelps, who has been riding for nine years. “The first year I rode in memory of my aunt who lost her battle to melanoma at the age of 38, leaving behind her husband and two young children,”Phelps recalled.

“Each year I ride, I seem to find more and more reasons and people to ride for. This year I am riding for my other aunt who was diagnosed in December with breast cancer,” she said. Phelps rides with the Patriots Platelet Pedalers, a 171-person team that raises money for and donates platelets at the Kraft Family Blood Donor Center at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Brigham and Women’s Hospital, which was established by New England Patriots owner

Robert Kraft and located in the Jimmy Fund Building in Boston. Every rider in the PMC is committed to raising a minimum of $4,800. All of that money goes directly to Dana-Farber. The funds raised by the Patriots Platelet Pedalers team are earmarked for the Kraft Family Blood Donor Center, where Kraft’s friend – Dr. Kenneth Anderson – specializes in treatment of myeloma, a cancer of the bone marrow. Anderson has been credited with transforming myeloma from a cancer where there was little hope for survival to a chronic, but manageable DAUGHTER AND MOTHER RIDE ALONG: Chelsea Phelps rode with her mother, Dawn, in last year’s 162-mile bicycle ride to Cape Cod, and she plans to do the same again this year. She feels a sense of camaraderie while cycling with the Patriots Platelet Pedalers. She wears a Patriots-style jersey with a special logo noting the team’s fifth Super Bowl victory last season. On the jersey, there are initials of five former teammates who have passed away. Later this year, Kraft will invite Phelps and her teammates to Gillette Stadium for a dinner to thank them for their fundraising efforts and platelet donations. “The rewards: knowing you “It’s an emotional ride” Phelps is a 2012 graduate of are helping people,” Phelps said. “Everybody has been affected Roger Williams College in Bristol, R.I., who received a B.S. in Business Administration. illness. “My uncle sent an email to people at work, and the wife of one of the guys who donated to me was diagnosed with that kind of cancer 10 years ago and given five years to live,” Phelps said. “She saw him [Anderson] for treatment and is still alive. When we do the PanMass Challenge, Dr. Anderson sits on the side of the road in Yarmouth and waves to us as we ride by.”

LABOR OF LOVE: Park Ranger Paul Kenworthy of the Saugus Iron Works National Historic Site in an interview this week shares his favorite stories at the Iron Works. He also says he loves talking to visitors at the National Park site, calling it “the nicest job I’ve ever had.” (Saugus Advocate photo by Mark E. Vogler)

National Historic Site and visit here? What’s the best reason for that? A: I think it’s the connection. The site is 350 years old, but there’s a direct connection to the way we live. The iron and steel industry is really important to what we do. And it was really important to the colonists. You can make that emotional connection to people living 350 years ago. Q: And what’s the most popular exhibit or attraction? A: Right now, it’s the waterwheels. People love watching the waterwheels run. The big thing, which unfortunately, it’s under repair right now, is the trip-hammer. There’s a 500-pound, water-powered trip-hammer in the forge building. When people see how massive the equipment that they used 350 years ago is … nobody comes in expecting to see machinery like that size and stuff.

“He was indicted as a youthful offender, which means the judge has the option to sentence him to state prison if convicted,”said Carrie Kimball Monahan, Director of Communications for Essex District Attorney Jonathan Blodgett’s Office. Police and prosecutors previously had not identified the suspect because he is a juvenile. However, his July 17 indictment as a youthful offender makes him subject to “adult sentencing,” thus leading to his public identification, according to Monahan. A Lynn District Court judge had determined Monteforte to be “dangerous” at a hearing earlier this month and ordered him confined to his home with GPS monitoring bracelet. Monteforte was initially charged with breaking and entering in the nighttime for a felony; wanton destruction of property over $250; larceny of a firearm; carrying a firearm without a license; and possession of ammunition without an FID card in connection with the June 19 incident. Saugus Police received a burglar alarm for Dick’s Sporting Goods at about 4:20 a.m. that day. Reportedly, an officer arrived quickly and observed a smashed window and

evidence of a break-in. He soon observed a male suspect in possession of a long gun, Saugus police said. The officer requested backup, and a mutual aid system was activated under the Northeastern Massachusetts Law Enforcement Council, also known as NEMLEC, which sent a SWAT Team, a mobile communications vehicle and several officers to assist. The NEMLEC Swat Team and Police K-9 units from across the region responded, but police couldn’t locate the suspect. After reviewing surveillance footage later in the morning, it was determined that the suspect escaped through a side door shortly after the first officer arrived. From reviewing the surveillance film, police identified the suspect in Everett and arrested him without incident at about 11:30 a.m. on Monday (June 19). Rep9ortedly, the bolt-action rifle, which Saugus Police confirmed was part of the store’s inventory, was located in a wooded area near the Square One Mall early Monday evening. Other evidence of the break-in and burglary was also recovered.

cil would view the world,”Martin said in an interview Wednesday following a visit to the Saugus Public Library, where she read from the book, which is due out next Tuesday (Aug. 1). The 20-page book – which will be published by Mascot Books and can be purchased through Barnes & Noble or the Amazon. com website – features a main character called Howie, who was inspired by her father, Howie Conley of Saugus. Martin’s sister, Candi Conley, who in real life teaches elementary math in grades K-5 in Revere Public Schools, is a teacher in the book. “It’s about a pencil that follows the school year … Howie owns the pencil. The book talks about the various things that can happen to a pencil in elementary school. He gets chewed, left on the ground, sharpened, left out on the playground during re-

Martin’s mother, Cookie Conley, said she loved the book, too, “of course, because my daughter wrote it.” “I think it’s perfect for kids in kindergarten through elementary school. I think kids will love it,”she said.“I worked for 36 years at the YMCA in Saugus and I’m happily retired. I’d love to see

Former classmates were among the big crowd that turned out Tuesday afternoon in the Community Room at Saugus Public Library. It was a homecoming of sorts for Martin, who will be teaching second grade next fall. “Right after I graduated from UMass-Amherst [1993], I moved to Texas for a teaching position,” Martin told The Saugus Advocate. “I met my husband the first year I worked and I never came back. We have two children – Brendan, he’s about to become 19 and enter his sophomore year at Baylor – and my daughter, Brooke. She’s about to enter the 8th grade.” Martin, her husband, two children, two cats and dog live in Sugar Land, Tex., a suburb of Houston. Her late grandmother taught at the YMCA, setting a career path followed by Martin’s mother, her sister and her. So, will the new book make the future reading lists for students in Saugus and Texas? “We’ll have to wait and see on that,” Martin said of the book that was written for children ages four through 12. Meanwhile, Mar tin has hopes of publishing another

RIDING | from page 4 by cancer or knows somebody who has cancer. There’s people who have cancer who ride. There are people who are survivors who ride. So, it’s an emotional ride,” Phelps said. “There are people who are triathletes who ride. There are people with one leg who ride. There are doctors who ride with their patients. It’s a big community – the riders and all of the volunteers. It’s pretty awesome.” she said. Phelps had initially planned not to ride in this year’s PanMass Challenge. But she had a change of heart and decided to dedicate her ride to an

ASKS | from page 5 smith shop and we give them away as souvenirs to the kids. And people will come in and say, “My nephew got a nail, can I get one?”or something like that. So, a lot of people ask about the nails. Q: So that’s a popular item? A: Yeah. For some reason, it just catches people’s imagination – just a little souvenir that sort of sums up the whole place. Q: How many visitors a year do you get here? A: About 3,500, and that’s in a six-month season. We’re open from May 1st to Oct. 31. We count the number of visitors every single day. We track it. And it’s about 3,500 per season. Q: Are most of the visitors from out-of-town? A: I think it’s about half and half. It’s amazing to me how far people travel. I did this tour this morning, and we had people from Portland, Oregon. I was apologizing for the rain, and they were saying, “Oh, we’re used to that. … It rains in Seattle. It rains in Oregon all of the time.” We get people who come from around the world. Last year we had Chinese archaeologists. There was a conference for Chinese archaeologists at BU and they scheduled a special side trip out to the Iron Works. So people from around the world know about this place. But then the other half of them [visitors] are people who are driving down Route 1 and they see the sign and they decide to stop in to find out what’s going on. Q: I imagine you get a lot of visitors that way. A: Yes. So it’s about half and half. People who make a long, long trip to get here and then people who are sort of just driving by. Q: Now, what is the oldest item on the premises? A: Well, the archeology actually found the bulk of the stuff – this is kind of a funny thing about the site, because the site is focused on the iron-making. But that’s not what most of the

aunt who is responding well to cancer treatments. “I’m riding this year out of gratitude because of my aunt, who was diagnosed in December. She had to have surgery, but no chemo, and she’s in remission,” Phelps said. “And there are a lot of people who are riding because they’re angry because they lost somebody to cancer and they want to find a cure. Everybody knows somebody with cancer, so there’s always somebody to ride with and ride for,” she said. Phelps maintains a philo-

sophical outlook on her participation in the Pan-Mass Challenge. “As long as I can. As long as my legs work,” Phelps said, reinforcing her commitment to a cause she believes in. “We always say that cancer doesn’t stop. So, why should we?” You’re only tired a few days and you have to go back to your normal life. Other people less fortunate have to go to treatments,” she said.

archaeology found. What most of the archeology found were Native American artifacts. People have been living in this spot for at least 8,000 years. We have thousands of Native American artifacts going back to millennia, so the oldest stuff is 8-10,000 years old. Q: That’s like pottery and arrowheads. A: Exactly. Pottery doesn’t even come into the culture 10,000 years ago. It’s mostly stone tools and things like that. Then 400 or 500 years ago, you get pottery and other kinds of artifacts. We have thousands of Native American artifacts in our collection here. Q: Wow. A: People have been living in Saugus for a really long time. Q: From your perspective as a researcher, what’s the neatest thing that you know about this place? Like, when you get friends – some of your college buddies or friends who come to visit you – you might tell them, “You want to know something interesting about this place …” A: Yes. The neatest thing for me is the size of the operation. The way the myth is presented, the early colonists come here and they have to make everything by hand. They have to weave their own clothes and they have to hunt for food because they can’t even grow their own crops. People have this image that these people were really, really primitive. And it’s not true. It’s not true at all. When they set up the iron works here, they set up a massive operation. Our park right now is nine acres. Their original site was 600 acres. So there were all sorts of things that aren’t in the park boundaries that are yet to be discovered. When they did the archeology – the park is right in the middle of Saugus – so there is a limit to how much you can go poking around in people’s backyards and things. But there were houses for the managers. There was a 30-acre farm where they kept oxen. There was an entire village called Hammersmith

where the workers’families lived. There’s probably 125 to 150 people who lived there. There were 240 acres of ponds running the waterwheels – all sorts of things that must have been there, but are outside the park boundaries, so people have yet to discover them. Q: Now, you have a registry of a lot of people who worked here over the time the iron works was in operation? A: Yes, the records of the original iron works are actually in the collection of the Baker Library at the Harvard Business School. They’re not complete, but they are pretty extensive. The iron works was in operation about 24 years. So we don’t have all 24 years’ worth of records, but we have quite a few records. The most popular thing is people with Scottish ancestors. They brought 50 or so Scottish prisoners of war here in 1651. And we get descendants of them all of the time coming through. So there’s actually a little booklet we have in the gift shop that lists all of the names of the people who were Scottish prisoners that were here. Q: Neat. Like you had last year when you had researchers come over. A: Yes. Exactly. We had the people from the University of Durham here last year – the archeology team that discovered some mass graves in Durham from the same battles. The Scottish prisoners actually have an interesting organization: the Scots’ Charitable Society of Boston. In the 1650s, some Scottish immigrants in Boston got together with some of the indentured servants here and they started the charitable organization to help each other out. And it’s the oldest charitable organization in North America, and it still exists in Boston. Nowadays, they don’t do the same sort of stuff. They give scholarships to college students; that’s what they do now. There’s an organization of Scots in Boston that’s been here for 350 years. Q: And they have connections

to Saugus? A: Yes. Direct connections. Q: When somebody visits the Saugus Iron Works, what can they expect to see? A: Well, there are couple of things. First of all, when you first come in from the parking lot, you see a house that was built in the 1680’s. And it was a special house. It was built by very wealthy people, so it’s very large and it’s very ornate. Then we have a museum that has artifacts from the archeology and it explains the history of the archeology of the site and the technology of the site. And then there are the reconstructed buildings. And then we have a big chunk of the Saugus River, too. We have a lot of interesting wildlife – a lot of plants and a lot of wildlife that come here. These tidal estuaries have quite a few different kinds of fish and birds and animals. There’s a mixture of things.

Q: Any famous people ever visit here? Presidents from this country or other countries? A: Not that I’m aware of. But this is only my third season. The person who was involved in this becoming a National Park in 1968 was Ted Kennedy, so I assume that Ted Kennedy was here at some point in time. Q: So he [Kennedy] was key in getting this to become a National Park. A: Yes. It had started as a private museum in 1944 and it was turned over to the National Park Service in 1968. As a matter of fact, it’s easy to remember the date it became a National Park because it was around the same day that Martin Luther King was assassinated – two weird coincidences. But Ted Kennedy was the sponsor for the legislation that set this up as a National Park.


THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, July 28, 2017

Page 14

ASKS | from page 13 Q: And, briefly, what kind of research goes on here? A: Well, most of the work that goes on here is maintenance work, and that includes all of the natural resources. They’re monitoring the river. They’re monitoring the birds. They’re monitoring the fish. They’re monitoring the plants and things like that. For historical research, there is a small archeology program going on. We haven’t been doing much active archeology in the last few years. It’s been awhile since anybody has ac-

tually dug up anything around here. They do that periodically. So most of the research that is going on is the interpreters, like me, going through the records and trying to find interesting stories to tell visitors. Q: So, what’s the most interesting story that you have come across? A: My favorite story is the Joseph Jenks story, which is actually kind of funny. Joseph Jenks was a swordsmith from England. One of the things that is interesting about this particular period in history is that the colony was a very peaceful place. Europe, at this time, was not. There were

major wars going on all across Europe. So, in Germany, there was the Thirty Years War. You think about a war lasting for 30 years. In the Netherlands, there is an 80-year war going on. And in England, there is a civil war going on. So, Joseph Jenks was a swordsmith who was trained by German sword makers, but he was working for the King of England in a swords mill in Hounslow Heath, which is where Heathrow Airport is nowadays, outside of London. And the swords mill was captured by the forces of Parliament, who were rebelling against the king. And they shut down the swords mill. So he [Jenks] is out of work, so he immigrates to the colony and he sets up a blacksmith shop next to the iron works. Now, he’s not an employee of the iron works. He’s an independent tradesman. He rents space and he buys iron from them. And instead of making weapons, he makes agricultural tools. The same technology that makes swords makes axes and saws and things. And he’s awarded the first industrial patent in North America. He comes up with a new process for making saw blades. And he makes agricultural tools. He makes saws, axes, scythes and sickles. They don’t need weapons here. They need agricultural tools. He also made fish hooks and straight pins and two waterwheels for his shop. One was for a trip-hammer and the other was for a water-drawing machine. And fishing was one of the major industries back then. I am fascinated by this guy who comes over here and switches his skill set. Q: From weapons to agricultural tools. A: Yes, he uses the same skills to make completely different things. Q: And did he live in Sau-

gus long? A: Yes. And there are descendants of Joseph Jenks in the area still. We get a lot of people who are doing genealogy research and discover they have an ancestor that was associated with the iron works in one way or another. And they come in to find out about it. Unfortunately, there are a certain number of myths. We get people who come in and they say, “Oh, Joseph Jenks started the iron works.” No, Joseph Jenks didn’t start the iron works. He lived here. He worked here. But he wasn’t the person who started the iron works. So you get these family myths. Q: Anything else that you would like to share about this place or about the tours? A: We are open seven days a week, including holidays, from May 1 to Oct. 31 every single day, 9 to 5. Q: And what is the most people you have had in one day? A: Well, the event that you went to [a July 12 visit by two reenacting groups – the Salem Trayned Band and the Lexington Minutemen], we had 255. I think that was the record for this season. Our biggest days are when the school groups come. We have a lot of programs for elementary school kids, and so it’s not unusual for us to have 120 kids come for a day. But usually they scheduled those early in the spring or late in the fall so they are not on the same days that we get a lot of other visitors. We could have a day when we get 120 fifth graders and then 10 adults total. May and early June are really busy for us; late September and October are really busy for us. Q: You seem to have a special connection to the Saugus Public Library – events and educational opportunities. A: Yes. They have school reading programs and things like that, which tie in nicely to the stuff we are doing here. And this year, we started a program for preschoolers, which has been really successful. Once a month, we have a special day for them, and it’s also tied into reading. We have a book that we read to them. You can go to our website and there’s a list of programs. People love bringing their kids here for programs. We have a beautiful lawn area and nice picnic tables, some shady spots under trees. It’s a real nice place just to come and have lunch or a cup of coffee and watch the world go by. Q: You’ve got some old trees on the premises. A: Yep. There are some big, old ones. They were in the backyards of houses that used to be here … the houses had to be moved for the archeology, but they left the trees.

Q: And some of these trees are how old? A: They are probably 100 to 150 years old. Q: What’s the biggest myth about the Saugus Iron Works? A: The most popular myth, I think, is the pirates story. There’s a myth that a ship was seen in Lynn Harbor and put out a boat. The boat rode up the Saugus River and rode back to the ship and the ship went away. And when they went to look, there was a note next to the iron works saying if the iron works made certain iron items and left them on this spot that they would be paid for. And it was items like shackles and chains and things, so they supposedly made the shackles and chains. And the pirates came and took them and left silver for them, but then the pirates were captured and executed. This story appears in the middle of the 1800’s. There is no documented evidence from the 1600’s that pirates had anything to do with Saugus. There’s an area near Vinegar Hill – Pirates Glen – there was a story that a pirate escaped into the Lynn Woods and lived in a cave there for a while. And there’s no evidence. It’s a great story, but it’s just a myth. Nobody can find any reference to these pirate stories earlier than the 1800’s. And, obviously, there weren’t any pirates around in the 1800’s. Q: What is the most important, little known fact about this place? A: I think it goes back to that there are a lot of things that aren’t here. I think it goes back to the size thing, that people think this is all that there was. And the reality was that there was so much more here. Q: And sprawling into people’s backyards. A: Yes, basically all of Saugus from what’s modern day Main Street or Hamilton Street, all the way up to where Walnut Street crosses Route 1, was all part of this operation. And now it’s just this little bit. It’s sort of funny the way it’s tucked into this residential neighborhood, too. Because, obviously, it wasn’t a residential neighborhood when they built the place in the 1600’s, but then the town grew up around it. Q: And what was the acreage you mentioned before? A: The park is nine acres. The original site was about 600 acres. … 640 acres is a square mile, so the place is almost a square mile. All of North Saugus was under water. Where Home Depot is was under water. Where Trader Joe’s is was under water – along the side of Breakheart Reservation – the ponds extended all of the way from the center of town all the way to the north end of Breakheart.

THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, July 28, 2017

NO CONFLICT | FROM PAGE 1 tion and was interviewed Monday by a screening committee that began meeting with applicants last Friday. “I applied before in 2013 when Rob O’Leary got the job,” Marchese said in a telephone interview, talking about her long-time interest in the position. “So, it’s not something new. It’s something I want to do. A lot of people probably don’t know about that,” she said. Since moving to Saugus in 2001, she’s taken an active interest in youth sports at all levels. Marchese said she will resign her position on the School Committee immediately if hired by Saugus Public Schools Superintendent Dr. David DeRuosi, Jr., who hopes to fill the position within the next two weeks. “If I don’t get the position, it will not stop me from doing everything I still do,” Marchese said. “Ultimately, my main concern and my main love is in the families and the students of Saugus. I have very high ethical standards and my love falls with the students,” she said. The Ethics Commission view Yesterday, Marchese provided a copy of the state Ethics Commission opinion to The Saugus Advocate. “Nothing in the conflict of interest law prohibits you from serving on the School Committee at the same time you are applying for the position of Athletic Director for the Saugus Public Schools,” Ethics Commission Staff Attorney Amy Nee wrote Marchese in an email dated July 20. Nee noted that a provision of the Conflict of Interest Law requires a member of a municipal board to resign from the board in order to be eligible for a position which the board both appoints and supervises. That provision also requires the remaining board members to wait 30 days after the board member resigned before considering the board member’s application. “This provision does not apply to you under the circumstances you have described. The School Committee does not appoint or supervise the Athletic Director,” Nee wrote in her opinion. “The Superintendent or possibly a principal has these responsibilities. Consequently, the conflict of interest law does not require you to resign from your School Committee position while you apply for the Athletic Director position,” Nee said. School Committee members interviewed by The Saugus Advocate offered mixed reaction on Marchese’s quest for

the athletic director’s position, coupled with the Ethics Commission opinion. School Committee Chairman Jeannie Meredith said she had

the most knowledgeable officials on ethics in local government during his 40 years of involvement (Town Meeting, Board of Selectmen and various other boards) – said he was surprised by the Ethics Commis-

CONFIRMING HER PREFERENCE: School Committee Member Elizabeth Marchese said she’s qualified and ready for her next challenge – as athletic director for Saugus Public Schools.

sion opinion. “It is news to me that members can get elected to the School Committee and while on the School Committee can seek employment in the School Department,” Manoogian said in an interview yesterday. “I was unaware of it. And, ultimately, the citizens of Saugus will judge the actions of the School Committee and each of its members in the coming election,” he said. “It’s probably news to the entire community that you can be a member of the School Committee and seek a position,” he said. Meanwhile, Arthur Grabowski – the most-veteran School Committee member, finishing his fourth two-year-term – said he still feels uncomfortable with Marchese’s candidacy. “The optics of this whole situation are not good,” Grabowski said. “Here you have a sitting School Committee person who applied for a position while sitting on the School Committee and is soon going to be in the position of having to evaluate the school superintendent. Does anybody see a problem with that? I do,” Grabowski said. Two members have “I see that as a huge problem. concerns School Committee Vice Chair- He [DeRuosi] is going to make a man Peter Manoogian – one of decision on a job where a peralready seen the Ethics Commission opinion and is confident that Marchese’s job candidacy was proper. “I have the utmost respect for her integrity,” Meredith said, declining to elaborate on her application, noting that the School Committee plays no role in the appointment of the athletic director. School Committee Member Linda Gaieski defended Marchese’s actions and said all candidates who apply should have their applications remain confidential. “Liz has the same right as any other citizen to apply for the position,” Gaieski wrote in an email. “According to the Ethics commission, she was told it was within her purvey. It then should be left up to the integrity of the process without any School Committee input as to who would be hired for the job,” Gaieski said. “As a SC [School Committee] member, I am not privy to who candidates are and do not attempt to influence in any capacity the hiring for a position. All candidates and their information are to be kept confidential,” she said.

son [Marchese] who is a candidate is going to evaluate him. That’s got to put a lot of pressure on him [DeRuosi],” he said. That concern could come up as an issue today when committee members are expected to meet and discuss the logistics of the superintendent’s annual evaluation. DeRuosi took over the Saugus School District on July 1 of last year, the start of School Committee Chairman the 2017 fiscal year. Jeannie Meredith Grabowski says DeRuosi “bowed” to politics Another controversy has overshadowed the process of finding a replacement for Nelson. Grabowski requested to be involved in the interviews of the candidates for the athletic director position. Initially, the superintendent struck a compromise, saying that Grabowski could sit in as an observer on the first day of interviews last Friday. But the superintendent changed his mind after Meredith complained about Grabowski sitting in on the meeting. “He and I both agreed to the rules of the road. And I abided by them and he changed his mind,” Grabowski said. “The only reason why I see he changed his mind: Several members complained to him. So, the problem to me isn’t that the Ethics Commission says it okay or isn’t okay. … It concerns me a lot more that the superintendent bowed to political pressure, when the superintendent has final approval. Is the superintendent answering to the School Committee now?” Grabowski said. Grabowski said he was reluctant to back down from the superintendent’s request on Monday to leave the High School until he was warned that police would be called in to escort him from the building. Both Gaieski and Meredith said they were troubled with Grabowski trying to involve himself in a process where he has no authority. “School Committee members do not weigh in on personnel matters,” Gaieski said. “Our only functions are hiring and firing the Superintendent, budget and policy. In my 47 years of involvement in Saugus schools, I do not recollect or have knowledge of School Committee members sitting in on interviews,” she said. “I trust in the abilities of the Superintendent, the principal and the committee to carry on a fair and impartial selection that will only enhance the district’s ability to function by hiring the individual most qualified for the job. I feel SC members sitting in on interviews might impugn the integrity of the process.” Meredith said committee members “should all be disap-

pointed and deeply concerned with the hiring process of the athletic director as well as having a School Committee member injecting himself into the hiring committee and confidential individual applicant interviews … This hiring situation and process undermines the school district, School Committee policies and the superintendent’s authority. We currently have over 300 policies in the Saugus Public School District; as a sitting member of the Policy Subcommittee, I don’t think we need to create another policy.” Meanwhile, Manoogian said he feels frustrated because the process of replacing the athletic director is polarizing the School Committee, creating “distractions” to accomplishing the important work. “I wish we could spend more time on things that make a difference on student achievement and less time on matters that include unnecessary drama, interpersonal squabble and dysfunction,” Manoogian said. “These interpersonal issues become distractions and cause us to lose focus. I am not my brother’s keeper in the case of Arthur or my sister’s keeper in the case of Elizabeth. “I have a passion ...” Marchese said she is focusing on moving forward as the next athletic director or continuing on as a School Committee member if she fails to get the job. “I have a passion for all of the kids in town. I have a passion for athletics. I know the next step: I could do more good as athletic director,” Marchese said. “I interviewed for about an hour. I think I gave a very good, detailed interview. We’ve done so much good work on the Athletic Committee that I felt we could take it to the next step by applying for athletic director,” she said. The Screening Committee received 15 letters of reference “from teachers, coaches and every youth organization in town.” “I gave the [screening] committee a copy of all of the letters as well as the Ethics Commission determination. … My platform – I’m interested in education-based athletics. I’m a huge proponent of academics,” she said.

THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, July 28, 2017

he recent Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court’s decision in the Daley/Nadeau cases essentially stated that a use and occupancy provision in an irrevocable trust did not make the home held in the irrevocable trust “available” and therefore did not make the home countable as an asset in a MassHealth eligibility determination proceeding. That was really good news. MassHealth is now arguing that such a provision still somehow leads to countable assets in determining MassHealth eligibility even though the only asset in the trust is the home. Here’s its incredulous argument in a nutshell: MassHealth is imputing a monthly fair market rental for the use, occupancy and possession of the home. Let’s say the monthly fair market value rent is $1,500. It then utilizes a Social Security Administration actuarial life expectancy table and determines the life expectancy of the MassHealth applicant. Let’s assume the life expectancy is 7 years. MassHealth will multiply $1,500 x 12 months x 7 years to arrive at a figure of $126,000. It then absurdly argues that this in effect is the countable assets of the applicant. Let’s not even talk about its failure to utilize a “present value of the future cash flows” analysis. In other words, the sum of a future stream of monthly income is simply worth less if you valued it as of today. Why? The time value of money. Firstly, MassHealth seems to not understand the concept of “net” income. Gross rental income is the starting point. In order to determine the monthly net income that might be available to the

applicant if the trust were to rent out the home, you would have to first deduct the monthly real estate taxes, insurance, water and sewer, condo fees, repairs and maintenance, etc. in order to arrive at a net income figure. MassHealth also is failing to recognize that a spouse is still living in the home, in which case, the home would not be rented out to a third party. The spouse at home would continue to pay for all of the monthly operating expenses. Where is the monthly income benefit available to the applicant to be used for the payment of his or her nursing home expenses in that instance? I don’t see it at all. MassHealth is attempting to create countable assets that exist today yet net rental income received two years from now is simply not available to be used for nursing home care today, never mind 7 years from now. MassHealth shows no consistency in its analysis of the law. It also shows a complete and total lack of good faith and fair dealing. As an example, if $500,000 is held in an income only irrevocable trust, no one disagrees that only the net income from that trust must be paid towards the applicant’s nursing home care as part of the PPA (Patient Pay Amount). So, if the interest income for the year was $10,000 and there were no trust expenses, only $10,000 would have to be paid directly to the nursing home each year. Even MassHealth agrees with this rule of construction. MassHealth has never argued under this scenario that you should take $10,000 x 7 years of life expectancy and come up with $70,000 of excess assets of the applicant. Net income is net income. It should not matter whether the trust investment is cash in a bank, a stock portfolio or rental real estate. The bottom line is the fight will continue due to the advocacy of the elder law bar. If MassHealth goes unchallenged, well-settled Trust law as we know it will be completely marginalized and the elderly will certainly be hurt.

Not Only For Hot Dogs


e may think of mustard only as an accompaniment to hot dogs. This low calorie condiment (only 3 calories per teaspoon) can be paired with meats and cheeses as well as sandwiches, salads, hamburgers and hot dogs. Also present in many dressings, glazes, sauce, soups and marinades. We don’t often consider this condiment’s various blends of flavors and textures that lend appeal and taste to various dishes. Common Flavorings Prepared mustard is a mixture of crushed mustard seeds, vinegar or wine, and salt or spices. Its color ranges from bright yellow to dark brown and the taste from sweet to spicy. Some common flavorings include honey, horseradish, cranberries, onions, wine

and peppers. Mustard can be a smooth paste or coarse depending on how finely the seeds are grounded. Mustard gets its pungent flavor from an essential oil that forms when the seeds are crushed and mixed with water. Yellow, Dijon, Dijon style, whole grain, and brown mustard are the more common types. Additionally, there is mustard powder or flour, which is used in making very hot English and Chinese mustard. Yellow mustard also known as American or “ballpark” mustard is mild and vinegary. Dijon mustard, named after the city in the Burgundy region of France, is made with wine, and so it is a smooth mustard, with a rich complex flavor. Dijon style is similar to Dijon but not made in Burgundy. Whole grain mustard can have whole, coarse or fine seeds. Brown mustard is better known as spicy brown mustard. Mustard is used as

a condiment for meat or deli meats or as a flavoring ingredient in sauces, stews, marinades and salad dressings. Mustard also acts as an emulsifier resulting in a creamy mixture especially useful in salad dressings. Given that each type imparts a unique flavor and texture without adding fat or sugar mustard ought to be one of the first ingredient to spring to mind when looking to keep a dish healthier, tasty and flavorful. Mustard is not just for hot dogs but it can have a major role in many dishes.

Dear Savvy Senior, How does one go about choosing a walker? I have some balance issues along with arthritis in my knee and could use a little more help than a cane provides. Unsteady at 70 Dear Unsteady, When it comes to choosing a walker, there are various styles and options to consider, but selecting the best one for you will depend on your needs, as well as where you’ll be using it. Here are some tips that can help you choose. Types of Walkers There are three basic types of walkers on the market today. To help you choose, consider the type of support you’ll need. Then, pay a visit to a medical equipment store or pharmacy (see that sells walkers so you can test-walk a few. Here are the different types you’ll have to choose from. Standard walker: This is the most basic style of walker that has four legs with rubber-based feet (no wheels), is very lightweight (around 6 pounds) and costs between $50 and $100. This type of walker must be picked up and moved forward as you walk, so it’s best suited for people who need significant weight bearing support, or who are walking very short distances. Two-wheeled walker: This has the same four-leg style as the standard walker except it has wheels on the two front legs that allow you to easily push the walker forward without lifting, while the back legs glide across the floor providing support while you step forward. These are best for people with balance issues, and are priced at around $60 to $120. Rollator: This is a rolling walker that has wheels on all four (or three) legs. These work best for people who need assistance with balance or endurance inside or outside the home, but require some upper body strength to prevent them from rolling out from under you. Rollators typically come with a built-in seat, basket and hand-breaks. Or, for those with hand arthritis or gripping problems, there are rollators with pushdown brakes that engage with downward pressure, and will lock if you sit on the seat. Rollators typically run between $75 and $225. Other Tips After deciding on a type of walker, there a few additional things you need to double-check to ensure it meets your needs. First, if you’re a large person, make sure the walker’s weight capacity will support you. And if you choose a rollator, check to see if your body can fit between the handgrips when sitting. Also make sure the height of the walker is set appropriately for you. To do this, stand with your arms relaxed at your sides. The handgrips of the walker should line up with the crease on the inside of your wrist. You also need to check that the walker folds easily for transport and storage, and that it’s light enough to lift into your car. Test the handgrips to make sure they’re comfortable. And, be sure you measure the doorways in your home to ensure your walker will fit through them. If you have narrow doorways consider installing “swing clear” offset door hinges as a simple and affordable way to widen them an extra two inches. Walkers also have lots of accessories that can be added for your convenience such as food tray attachments, tote bags for carrying personal items, oxygen tank holders, and tennis ball walker glides that go over the feet of a standard walker to help it slide more easily across the floor. For more tips on how to choose and use a walker, visit It’s also a smart idea to work with your doctor or a physical therapist, and be sure to get a written prescription, as Medicare will cover 80 percent of the cost.
