brianna Perry began her Fourth of July celebration patriotically at the Saugus Public Library Wednesday afternoon – by creating an American-style heart out of red, white and blue construction paper. Making the heart and a cutout white star trimmed with red and blue paper gave her a chance to express herself artistically about the holiday she will be celebrating Tuesday (July 4) at a family house on Sebasticook Lake in Newport, Maine. “Freedom of speech,” she answered when asked what the Fourth of July means to her. “To be free to say and kind of do what we want – anything that we want to do that isn’t il-

space to deliver the District’s educational commitments and goals,” she said. The proposed project would create a new 269,070 square foot facility to replace the current building, which suffers from deficiencies in major building systems, including mechanical, electrical and plumbing; envelope, windows and accessibility, according to a statement released by the MSBA Wednesday night. The existing Saugus High School is a 193,200 square foot facility located on a 21.74 acre site, which currently serves students in grades 9-12. The original school building was constructed in 1954. One of the next steps is for the District and MSBA to enter into a Project Funding Agreement, which will detail the project’s scope and budget, along

Both ballot questions needed to pass in order for the school project to continue. Town Manager Scott C. Crabtree and Superintendent of Schools Dr. David DeRuosi, Jr., who went to Boston for the hearing, could not be reached for comment and did not return messages left at their office. Meanwhile, MSBA officials expressed optimism about the project. “Students will soon have a beautiful new space, which will undoubtedly enhance and improve their ability to excel in the classroom,” MSBA Executive Director/Deputy CEO John K. McCarthy said Wednesday. MSBA partners with Massachusetts communities to support the design and construction of educationally appropriate, flexible, sustainable and cost-effective public school facilities. Since its 2004 inception, MSBA has made over 1,750 site visits to more than 250 school districts as part of its due diligence process and has made over $12.7 billion in reimbursements for school construction projects.

The MSBA document also revealed other details of how costs of the project could be affected: “The Estimated Basis of Total Facilities Grant would be $113,546,524, which excludes: ineligible costs associated with The new Berry Tavern sits on the same site as the tavern in 1748.

The MSBA has calculated this recovery of funds to be $1,740,669 and this amount has been deducted from the Estimated Maximum Total Facilities Grant and the Maximum Total Facilities Grant Project Scope and Budget Agreement.” Grabowski talks about spending Veteran School Committee Member Arthur Grabowski – who has a reputation for his fiscal conservatism and often questioning educational spending – said town officials need to justify all costs as the project proceeds.“I think we have to be very critical in looking at the design process and be cautious on what we are spending on,” Grabowski said in an interview Wednesday. “And we have to realize it’s coming out of the taxpayer’s pocket and not be frivolous. I think we got a good design team … both the architect and construction manager,” Grabowski said. At the same time, he said he didn’t want to cut the budget for the building project “to the bare bones,” while sacrificing quality in its construction. “I want to make sure the [School Project] Building Committee does the job it was expected to do,” he

Elementary School, also spent part of Wednesday afternoon making an American heart on a popsicle stick to take home. She said the Fourth of July makes her think about American soldiers and all of the freedoms they have fought for. “I’m thankful for my friends and my family – and doing fun things with them,” Sheri said at a table covered with strips of colored paper and a plastic bin filled with scissors, crayons and paste. “I am happy I can go to my friend’s house for a Fourth of July party. We’re going to have a barbeque, she said.

“Americanish” art for kids Abrianna and Sheri were just two of several dozen students from Saugus Public Schools who showed up at the library this week to make something“Americanish” to take home for July 4, according to Nicole Correa, assistant children’s librarian. Correa has spent part of the week monitoring the young artists and has a few observations on what the Fourth of July means to them. “Some of them just say fireworks and cookouts … We had a few older kids saying it means ‘freedom’ to them,” Correa said. So, does she think the meaning of the Fourth of July is lost on most kids these days? “No. I

don’t think so,” Correa told The Saugus Advocate. “I think the older kids get it. Children learn about the American Revolution, how we got our independence and the freedoms we enjoy from learning in school,” Correa said. “And the theme for the summer reading program at the library is pretty patriotic. All summer, the kids will be reading about the American Revolution, Massachusetts history and freedom,” she said. “Last year, we had about 400 children involved in the summer reading program. We have about 200 so far this year, and we’re just about at the beginning. So, I think we’re going to get even more kids reading, from kindergarten through the fifth grade,” she said. The meaning of the Fourth of July So, what’s the meaning of the Fourth of July to adults? Do they still feel a sense of patriotic pride that filled their hearts when they were kids celebrating the holiday? “Sure does,” Correa answered quickly. “To me, it means freedom. I’m thankful for my freedom and everything that comes with it,” she said.

The other two can be from the suggested reading list or any books from a child’s reading level pertaining to Massachusetts. Saugus students can register for the Summer Reading Program through Aug. 9.

Northeast Metro Tech Summer School 2017


akefield – Northeast Metro Tech will be offering one session of summer school this year, for students in grades 9 through 12 for credit and/or certificate. All courses are 42 hours in length and taught by certified instructors licensed by the D.E.S.E. The summer session will be held daily from 7:45 a.m. to noon. Summer school will begin on Monday, July 10, and end on Friday, July 21. The first day, students must report to the cafPATRIOTIC BOOK SELECTION: Assistant librarian Nicole Correa says young readers will learn a lot about the American Revolution, Massachusetts history and freedom this summer from the books available for the summertime reading program at the Saugus Public Library (Saugus Advocate Photos by Mark E.

ipate in pike and musket drills, dress like a colonist and end the day with musket firing demonstrations (3:30 p.m.). The Iron Works is teaming up with the Saugus Public Library “for a fun day of living history to support and inspire our young readers,” according to a recent press release by the Saugus Iron Works National Historic Site. “The Salem Trayned Band recreates the dress and drill of the first militia company in Massachusetts: 1629 - 1637 and the Lexington Minute Men portray those in the company who served valiantly throughout the American Revolution: 1775 - 1781,” the announce-

ment said. “This is a collaborative program with the Saugus Public Library to support and inspire our young readers.” Children who attend the event will be treated to Colonial dress up clothes and ice cream – at no charge. The expenses are covered by a donation from the New Friends of the Saugus Public Library and the Big Y. The Saugus Iron Works National Historic Site is located at 244 Central St., a short walking distance from Saugus Town Hall. Editor’s Note: For more details, call 781-233-0050 or go to the Iron Works website at www.nps. gov/sair.

Grabowski reiterated his concerns on a related matter – that the town is skimping on a School Department budget at a time when it’s trying to develop major improvements in education programs that will accommodate students when they move into a new building three to four years from now. “We’ll have a brand-new building, but I want to see the same commitment and enthusiasm for the School Department budget that we have not had,” Grabowski said. “If we’re going to building a brand new state-of-the-art building, we gotta build a brand new state-of-the-art program. An increase of $300,000 to $400,000 a year [in the School Department budget] is not adequate. It’s like treading water. And that’s kind of frustrating,” he said. The financial impact on taxpayers is another matter that Grabowski said he will be watching. “I just hope we do the right thing and don’t make the whole town unaffordable for a whole group of people who lived their

whole lives in the town, like myself. I know the voters spoke very loudly, and we need to move,” he said.

Editor’s Note: For this week, we sat down with Stephen P. Carlson to get a better understanding of the Round Hill Historic Site being developed by the Saugus Historical Commission – of which he has served as chair for more than three decades. Carlson, 68, is a lifelong Saugus resident who still lives in the childhood home where he was born and raised. He is a 1966 Saugus High School graduate. He received his B.A. degree in American History from Salem State College (1970) and an M.A. in Amer-

ferred to Boston National Historical Park, where he has held a number of positions relating to historic preservation, with a special interest in both the Charlestown Navy Yard unit of the park and USS Cassin Young. He is the author of the three-volume “Charlestown Navy Yard Historic Resource Study” (2010). Since 1979 he has served as chair of the Saugus Historical Commission, which is responsible for inventorying historic resources in the town and providing advice

to the town government on preservation issues. Major achievements by the commission include the passage of a demolition delay bylaw, the listing of the Saugus Town Hall on the National Register of Historic Places and its subsequent rehabilitation, the completion of a comprehensive inventory of the town’s historic resources and the establishment of the Round Hill Historic Site. Carlson served on the Saugus 200th Anniversary Committee. He is a life member of the Saugus Historical Society and served as a director of that organization, in addition to being editor and designer for its booklet series. He is also a member of the Beverly Historical Society, the National Trust for Historic Preservation and the United States Naval Institute. Other memberships include organizations relating to transportation history, including the Boston & Maine Railroad Historical Society, the Boston Street Railway Association, the Central Electric Railfans Association, the Light Rail Transit Association (UK), the Seashore Trolley Museum, and the Shore Line Interurban Historical Society. Carlson is the author of several books, including the following: a two-volume history of the PCC streetcar (“PCC– The Car That Fought Back” with Fred W. Schneider III, 1980); “PCC– From Coast To Coast” (1983), regarded as the definitive work on the subject; and a pictorial history of streetcars in Massachusetts, “From Boston to the Berkshires” (1990). He also created several booklets on local history for the Saugus Historical Society, including “All Aboard!” (1980), “Saugus Memories” (1986) and “First Iron Works” (1991). He was a director of the Millennium Book Associates and a major contributor to “A Gathering of Memories” (2001) and “Of Time and the River” (2005). He has served as managing editor and production de-

signer for “The Broadside,” the official information bulletin of Boston National Historical Park. As a graduate student, he was Associate Editor of “The Maryland Historian” and has served as editor and designer for publications for both the Saugus Historical Society and the Boston Street Railway Association. Carlson attended the Center United Methodist Church, transferring to the East Saugus United Methodist Church when the former closed, and since 2011 has been chair of its board of trustees. As church historian, he is the author of “East Saugus United Methodist Church: Serving in Saugus Since 1815 – A Brief History” (2016). In September 2013 he was honored with selection as the Saugus 2013 Man of the Year during the annual Person of the Year ceremony. He is a 40-year cancer survivor. Some highlights of this week’s interview follow. Q: Okay, Stephen. Why should people in Saugus care about Round Hill? A: Well, I think they should care about Round Hill because it represents part of our heritage that goes back to the Native Americans that were in the area and the first settlers. It was a landmark for the first settlers. It was obviously chosen to be the centerpiece of the town seal. And I think part of the significance to the project is it is a way for people to gain an appreciation for the town – that it is more than either just the Iron Works or the Route 1 commercial strip – which is what most people, when they think of Saugus, that’s what they think of: the Iron Works or Route 1. And there’s a lot more to the town than that. Q: Do you think that most people in town are aware that you have this park with the mon-

when we were selling coasters and so forth. We were prominent at Founder’s Days and other locations, putting information in front of people about what we were doing, so I think that people are generally aware of it. Q: But do you think most people are aware of the marker that’s already up there at the site, hidden behind the Public Safety Building on Round Hill Street?

A: Probably not. Yes, it’s hidden behind the Police Station. We’re hoping that once it’s done, it will get more attention, particularly as we’re trying to incorporate our plans with more education – and bring it to the attention of the school kids and so forth, with the idea that if they are exposed to it in school,

Just one night, the phone rang and I answered it and she [Baker] said who she was and said that she had this fence that she wanted to donate to the town. And I immediately realized that it would be perfect for what we were trying to do at Round Hill. And that kind of gave me a bit of confidence that this thing would actually happen. You know, it’s taken a long time. A lot of it has been people and companies donating labor and so forth, so it

tends to take longer than if you just went out and bought something. I think we have been very gratified by the people who have stepped up and volunteered to help us in some way. I think it shows that they appreciate the town. Obviously, we have been helped by some of the corporations that have stepped up, like Wheelabrator [Technologies Inc.] and Aggregate Industries. And I know, to be honest, we’ve had some complaints that we have gotten some contributions from Wheelabrator. As you know, there’s kind of a love-hate relationship with them over the years. And, if they are willing to – I’m not going to question their motives for coming through with not only a past contribution, but paying a landscaper to do the site prep work for us. We appreciate it as we appreciate all contributions to this project. Q: So, it’s the one project in town that struck me, where Wheelabrator and [Wheelabrator critic] Peter Manoogian are on the same team. A: (Laughter) I would not expect at any future ceremony to


THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, June 30, 2017

ASK | from page 8 see Peter Manoogian standing next to Peter Kendrigan [plant manager of Wheelabrator’s trash-to-energy incinerator on Route 107 in Saugus]. Q: Well, they might be at the same ceremony, but they probably wouldn’t be there, standing together. A: Yes. Q: How many years in the making has this project been? A: Well, as I said previously, we presented the idea to Town Meeting in May of 2011, and it was at a Special Town Meeting in October 2011 when it passed. We were discussing it for a couple of years before that, kind of figuring out what we could do in developing the initial plan. Q: Was this on your radar at the turn of the Century [2000]? A: Ah, not really. Not really. And I have to say that it was Ray Lawrence [a former member of the Saugus Historical Commission] who is retired and no longer lives in Saugus. He was one of our members and he was the one who really brought it to the commission’s attention. And another member, Stephen Rich, came up with the basic concept of what we should be doing. That’s what’s explained in our brochure [recently distributed throughout town]. This is property that the town purchased back in 1910, it had been an open area that became overgrown with trees and brush. Q: And at the time of the dedication in September, will there be a representative of descendent from Native Americans? A: There will be some Native American participation in the dedication ceremony. I can’t say right now that they will have a direct association with Native Americans who had lived in this town. We’re working, particularly through Rev. Martha Lahey of the First Congregational Church here in the center. We’re working with her in terms of getting Native American involvement. She’s very active in that area. Q: What is the neatest historical fact that you like to look upon that’s evolved with this whole project? A little-known, but fascinating bit of Saugus history? A: I think one that comes to

mind – kind of a weird one – is when we were one time out there looking over the site, one of the older neighbors, who I don’t think is there anymore, came over and recalled that she was told by her parents that in the early years of the century [1900s], they would have the Easter sunrise service at the top of the hill and they would actually drag a portable pump organ to the top of the hill where they would have music. That was kind of an unusual thing – a pump organ at the top of Round Hill. At the turn of the Twentieth Century, the hill was basically not covered with trees. It was largely open. And right now, it’s covered with trees. This will probably get the [town] Tree Committee up in arms, but I would love to see in the future, a lot of the trees … Q: Thinned out? A: Yes. Thinned out, particularly toward the top. Right now we haven’t attempted to provide access to the top, because it gets into all kinds of questions with accessibility and so forth. But, eventually, it would be nice if people could go to the top and see that vista that you can see in some of the old post cards in town that show how it was – looking out over the river and so forth. It would be nice to do that and perhaps … my thoughts would be, since it’s probably too steep for a wheelchair and even myself with my arthritis and cane to get to the top, maybe there can be some kind of webcam at the top and a monitor at the base of the hill, or an app that people can call up on their mobile phone and get a view from where the top would be. But, again, that’s a long-term effort. As I say, right now we’re concentrating on fundraising to finish the initial landscaping and then possibly next season to do a little bit more elaborate plantings. Basically, this year, it’s just going to be green grass and then maybe get into some more decorative plantings for the future. And also we will be looking to see if we can get somebody to kind of adopt the site and take care of maintenance of the site. Those are things that we haven’t really decided on yet. We’re concentrating on getting the site landscaped. But those

are things that we will be looking at in the future. Just because we have a dedication in September doesn’t mean that we are finished with the site. Q; For the time being, though, the town would take care of the upkeep of the site? A: Right. It’s town property. Q: What’s the most significant development in this whole project, if there is? Is it the collection of individual people and companies that came together? A: I think that is. I think it’s always gratifying when you can get people to come together for something that doesn’t necessarily have a direct benefit for them – that they’re contributing to the greater good and preserving the heritage of the town. Q: And, do you have a vision of the ultimate site when it’s finished? I guess that would be the pruning of the trees on top? A: The ultimate would be to kind of prune or partially clear. I would not want to totally remove all of the trees from the site, where it is completely bare. I would have some trees remain, but I would cut some of the trees back so that people could get to the top. But that’s a long way off. Our next step would be to try to enhance what we’ve done with the park in terms of more decorative plantings: shrubs, flowers and so forth, That’s kind of our next step, but we’re keeping in mind – the long-term goal – we would be able to have people experience what it was like

a hundred years ago on top of Round Hill. Q: Anymore informational placards or curator-type signs that you’ll put at the site for visitors to learn about it? A: No, nothing more than the one interpretative marker that you saw. Q: Some of the words in your brochure are on that marker. A: Yes. Obviously, you want to keep it as brief as possible. If you put too much text, people won’t read it. I know that from being involved with many markers and many exhibits with that National Park Service. There’s always the temptation to have too many words. People want the essence, but not a lot of words. If they want more information, there are other ways that they can get it. It’s best to just give them the essence of what there is. At this point, I would think that any other interpreter’s marker would be when we do something at the top of the hill. Q: What’s the most historic thing – beyond being part of the town seal – as far as what happened on the hill? Were there any battles or notable events? A: We really don’t have any details of that. We know in general that a hill such as that would have been a place where Native Americans would have gathered. There have been Native American artifacts found there in the area – arrowheads and other stuff – but we don’t really have any one specific event that

Page 9 we can tie to the hill. Q: It looks like it would be an ideal lookout spot, especially during a time of battle. A: Yes, a lookout spot, particularly recognizing that in the 19th and early 20th Century, when the river was much more open and small boats and so forth could actually come up the river a lot further than they do now. Q: How many “Friends” do you have – contributors – the “Friends of Round Hill”? How many “Friends”? A: I don’t honestly know. I do not. Some of other members [of the Saugus Historical Commission] would be the ones dealing with the contributions. It’s also hard to say … I don’t know how many coasters we wound up selling. Some people would buy one set. Some people bought several sets because they would use them as gifts and so forth. I would consider all of them supporters, too. Q: Ballpark number of “Friends”? A: I’d say overall, we’ve probably had 200 to 300 people who have contributed in one way or another. Obviously, the ones who are named in the brochure are the ones who have given the larger amounts of money or service. And they are the ones we would definitely want to acknowledge [in the brochure]. And, in some cases, people – there’s a couple of businesses that contributed in the first round of fundraising who have already responded with an additional contribution as a result of this brochure. Q: Anything else that you would like to share that we haven’t covered in our interview? A: I think that pretty much covers it, but I should mention two final things. One: Saturday, September 16 at 9 o’clock (a.m.), the 200th anniversary committee is planning on burying the time capsule; and then Tuesday, September 19th at 10 a.m. will be the formal dedication of the site. Q: And if people want to support this project? A: People can send their contributions to Saugus Historical Commission, ℅ Round Hill Project, 298 Central St., Saugus, Ma. 01906.

Aggregate Industries commences reclamation project at Saugus Quarry


uring an open house on June 21, Aggregate Industries Northeast Region, Inc. in Saugus announced the start of a land reclamation project to fill more than 30 acres of its onsite rock quarry. Aggregate Industries, a member of the LafargeHolcim family, will continue its current operations dur-

ing the reclamation project, which will span over the next 15 years. “We take our leadership as an environmental steward very seriously and are committed to exploring ways to repurpose our land as appropriate. We’re excited about the opportunity to transform the Aggregate Indus-

tries Saugus Quarry and to begin this reclamation project after years of planning,” said Brad Kohl, Aggregate Industries’ U.S. ACM Head of Northeast and Great Lakes West Regions. “As the project moves forward, we will continue working closely with the Town of Saugus to consider potential uses for the site, which could be an economic driver for the area.” Aggregate Industries has worked closely with Saugus’s Aggregate Post-Closure Committee for the past 10 years to develop plans and protocols for the reclamation project, and to develop a mutually beneficial reclamation plan. This partner-

ship has also included reviewing potential end uses for the filled quarry. To achieve this milestone, Aggregate Industries has also worked closely with and received approvals from the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (MassDEP), the Massachusetts Division of Fisheries and Wildlife (MassWildlife) and the Massachusetts Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs (EEA). Approvals and permits outline the specific fill materials that can be used throughout the process, including soils generated from both Massachusetts Contingency Plan (MCP)

and non-MCP disposal sites, out-of-state soils, dredged material and blasted rock. Per MassDEP requirements, any materials that arrive at the site must come from a known, tested source, with licensed site professionals overseeing both the generator’s soil and operations at the reclamation project. At the Saugus site, Aggregate Industries currently operates two asphalt plants, a readymix concrete plant, quarrying and crushing activities, maintenance and other related activities. These industrial operations at the site will remain in operation throughout the reclamation process.

Rep. Wong opposes 2018 ballot proposal to create a graduated state income tax B

OSTON –State Representative Donald H. Wong (R-Saugus) recently voted to oppose placing a graduated state income tax plan on the 2018 state ballot. Citing concerns about its constitutionality, uncertainty over how the money raised will actually be spent and the longterm impact the tax change will have on the state’s economy, Representative Wong voted against the “Millionaire Tax” proposal, which was approved on a 134-55 vote during a joint session of the House and Senate. “My main reason for voting against the ‘Millionaire Tax’ is because there is no way of guaranteeing that the money will go directly to education and transportation,” Representative Wong said. “Some people say that it’s unconstitutional to make specific appropriations of the money. But if you already broke the Constitution to have a ‘Millionaire Tax’, why can’t you then break the Constitution to appropriate the money?” The tax measure, which requires the support of at least 50 legislators in two successive legislative sessions, received initial approval during last year’s state Constitutional Convention, where it passed on a vote of 135-57. With today’s vote, the question will now advance to the November 2018 state ballot. Massachusetts currently assesses all residents’ personal

income at a uniform “flat tax” rate of 5.1 percent, and capital gains at a 12 percent rate. The ballot proposal would amend the state Constitution by creating a two-tier tax system imposing an additional 4 percent surtax on all income in excess of $1 million beginning January 1, 2019, with the revenues set aside for education and transportation. The Department of Revenue estimates the surtax will generate approximately $1.9 billion in its first year. Although the state Constitution explicitly prohibits any amendment that “makes a specific appropriation of money,” the ballot proposal attempts to circumvent this restriction by designating the money as “subject to appropriation” by the Legislature. All revenues collected through the surtax will be placed in the General Fund, where it will be up to the Legislature to determine how the money will be allocated. During last year’s Constitutional Convention, the House Republican Caucus tried unsuccessfully to amend the proposal to ensure that any funds raised through the surtax will be used “in addition to” and not “in lieu of” money currently being spent on education and transportation. Because the ballot proposal was not subject to further amendment this year, Representative Wong expressed concern that there are no protections in place to guarantee educa-

tion and transportation will actually see any net increase in funding. Leading business groups have labelled the tax proposal as anticompetitive, saying it will have a detrimental impact on small businesses and job creation, with the Massachusetts High Technology Council warning it “could cause irreparable harm to the state’s innovation economy.” Several of the state’s major business groups – including the Massachusetts Taxpayers Foundation (MTF), Associated Industries of Massachusetts, and the Massachusetts Competitive Partnership – are now considering a legal challenge. In an analysis of the ballot question released on June 12, MTF indicated it is “unlikely” the full $1.9 billion in new tax revenue will ever materialize, due to two key factors: the ability of many of the state’s top earners to relocate to avoid the surtax; and the volatility of capital gains taxes, which are being counted on to provide about $500 million of the new tax revenues. MTF noted that capital gains tax collections dropped by $670 million in 2002, and by $1.65 billion during the last recession in 2008. Between 1962 and 1994, Massachusetts voters rejected a total of five graduated income tax ballot proposals. The most recent ballot initiative, in 1994, was defeated by a margin of more than 2-1.

ormer Boston Bruins Hall of Fame defenseman Ray Bourque got to partake publicly in his other sporting love by cohosting a golf clinic for youngsters on Tuesday at the Salem Country Club. The clinic’s other host was golf great Hale Irwin, who captured seven major titles on the PGA circuit. He won the Senior Open in 1998 and 2000 and was the runner-up in ’96 and ’04. Before retired from hockey 16 years ago, Bourque’s accomplishments as a National Hockey League defenseman were prolific. In his 23-year career, Bourque, who played 21 years for the Bruins, scored 410 goals and finished with 1,579 points. He played in over 1,600 regular season games and 214 postseason contests, where he produced 180 points. He made the Stanley Cup finals twice as a Bruin and was part of a championship team in Colorado in 2001. Bourque received the Norris Trophy for the league’s best defenseman five times.

Irwin told the kids he thinks it’s great that they’re active in many sports. He said golf is a game they can play well for a long time, whereas that is not the case for many other sports.

THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, June 30, 2017


By Mark Vogler


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

Happy Birthday, America! Other than the bunting that’s gone up on Saugus’s historic Town Hall, there’s nothing official that’s sponsored by the town going on between now and Tuesday (July 4). The Saugus Public Library is a one possible outlet for kids who want to get artistic. (See our Fourth of July feature story.) But there are no parades, barn fires, fireworks, pie-eating contests or threelegged races and all the other events that go with a red, white and blue celebration that many old-timers recall as normal activity to celebrate America’s birthday. There’s at least one neighborhood block party going on that the organizers don’t promote – for fear that they might run out of food and not have enough help on hand to serve the partygoers. And I’m sure there are a few low-key barbeques going on, as there would be in most American cities and towns on this special day. Anyway, happy Fourth of July to you and yours. Drive safe and be safe, however you celebrate. If you’re going to imbibe, use a designated driver. A public invitation to this July 4 party By the grace of God, there is at least one July 4 party where all folks are invited on Tuesday.“Everybody is welcome. And we’ll make sure everybody who comes has something to eat,” said Brandon Allison, pastor of TrueVine Church at 8 Prospect St. Allison and his wife, Miryam, who is in charge of the Kids & Women’s Ministry at the church, are expecting about 50 to 60 for their party, which will run from Noon to 3 p.m. on Tuesday (July 4). But Allison told me he’s not worried if his party draws 200 or more people. “If we get 200 people, then we’ll run and pick up food to feed 200 people,” Allison said. “In the past, we’ve done events where we had as many as 150 people. That’s when we rented out Rollerworld for an event and just invited the community. Then we invited everybody back to the church for pizza and a movie. Anybody who shows up is going to have something to eat,” he said “This is a community party and it’s for free. This will be the first of, hopefully, many more to come,” he said. Allison said he’s not worried about how much this party could cost. “It’s funded from the people who give to TrueVine church. We use a portion of that to sponsor Saugus Community Events … It started January of 2016. We starting putting on free monthly events for the community,” he said. This one is really geared for kids, but grown-up kids are welcome, too, he said. “We’re going to be doing fun games. There will be a blow-up bouncing house, snow cones and popcorn … and music,” he said. They’ll also be cooking hamburgers and hot dogs. And there will be lemonade and other soft drinks. Well, Saugus pols might have a good place to go if they want to do a little campaigning on the holiday One-day delay in trash/recycling pickup The Town of Saugus has announced that trash and recycling collection will run on a one-day delay from Wednesday, July 5 to Saturday, July 8, due to the observance of the Fourth of July. JRM will collect waste and recycling as normal on Monday, July 3. There will be no collection on Tuesday (July 4), due to the holiday. Services will resume on a one-day delay from Wednesday, July 5 through Saturday, July 8. Residents whose collection day falls on Tuesday through Friday should leave trash and/or recycling out the morning after your regularly scheduled collection day. The compost site will be open normal hours tomorrow (Saturday, July 1) and Wednesday (July 5), from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. The Town of Saugus would like to thank everyone for their cooperation.

Every Tuesday, 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. “Join the fun as we plant, care for, and taste garden treats. We grow flowers, herbs, vegetables, a pizza garden and a fairy garden too! Every week we do a fun project with tastings, crafts, and storytime.” Hats off to Boy Scout Troop 62! I don’t get too many invites, being a reporter in a town where folks can be distant and downright unfriendly because of polarizing local politics. It’s really not much different than what I ran into back in the late 80’s and early 90’s, when I was writing stories for North Shore Sunday, covering Saugus over a five-and-a-half-year stretch. And to be fair, I have met some great people, just like any other place where I traveled over more than four decades. But I’ll hang with those folks of Boy Scout Troop 62 anytime I’m free. Especially those proud Eagle Scouts. I really got a good taste of Saugus hospitality on Tuesday night at a troop and pack cookout at Camp Nihan. The rain eventually drove the gathering inside a cabin for the awards ceremony, but I got to enjoy the cookout before it started pouring. I look back fondly on scouting experience back in 1968 when I made my Eagle rank with Scout Troop 26 in Swansea, Mass. I went to Philmont Scout Ranch in Cimarron, N.M. – that involved a 60-mile, 10-day expedition while carrying a 60-pound backpack through the wilderness. In 1969, I got to go to the National Scout Jamboree in Farragut State Park, Idaho. I remember that we were supposed to watch the lunar landing on a four-sided screen that was set up. Though a book about Eagle Scouts I had reports that thousands of scouts from around the nation and world got to watch Neil Armstrong of Apollo 11 take his first step on the moon on July 20, 1969, after the lunar module Eagle had landed, I can tell you it never happened. I was there, and there was a malfunction of that giant screen that kept us from seeing history made. Anyway, hopefully, a lot of the young men from Troop 62 will have some intriguing stories to tell years from now, recalling their own adventures. I know the two future Eagles I met this week – Joshua Francis Whiting and Philip G. Duffy III – already have some great memories, along with their scoutmaster, John Kane. Candidates’ views are welcome Speaking of a willingness to talk about the issues, we’re going to hear a lot more from potential candidates as the summer moves on. Another local election campaign is creeping up. Nomination papers won’t be available at the Town Clerk’s Office until July 24. But we’ve already had two potential challengers surface for selectman. The Saugus Advocate welcomes campaign announcements from candidates seeking public office in the fall elections. Email me a letter stating your interest and qualifications for the position you are seeking, and we’ll be glad to publish it along with a photo. It should be interesting to see whether the overwhelming support by voters on the school building project will give incumbents on the Board of Selectmen and the School Committee a tide to ride right into the November general election. Stay tuned. Historical happenings on Round Hill The Saugus Historical Commission has set out an informative pamphlet at Town Hall, reporting the progress of the Round Hill Historic Site, which sits behind the Public Safety Building on Hamilton Street. A formal dedication of the site is expected in September. The

ceremony will include burial of the time capsule created during the 2015 anniversary celebration. The brochure describes Round Hill as “Part of a highly significant Native American Cluster,” noting that Native Americans gathered stone from the ledge of jasper at the foot of Round Hill for tools. “As we near the realization of this collaboration with a variety of individuals and groups, we look forward to a site where the general public will be able to visit, attend events and share in the proud history of Round Hill,” the brochure notes. “The area’s extensive history, culture and natural resources will be preserved for future generations. The results of this partnership will be an amazing picture of our past being created in-situ through the preservation of the Round Hill Historic Site,” it continues. Anyone can become “A Friend of Round Hill by making a donation to the Saugus Historical Commission, ℅ Round Hill Project, 298 Central St,, Saugus, MA 01906. Teen TV Summer Workshop This just in from Michelle Madar, production manager at Saugus Community Television Inc.’s Stop-Motion Animation Workshop: “Did you hear the news?” Madar wrote in an email we received last week. “Saugus TV won an Award for a 2-minute Stop-Motion Animation Promo.

The event, which has become a tradition for Saugus students who receive congratulations for moving onto the Belmonte Middle School, was sponsored by the Veterans Memorial Elementary School Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) – which also served light refreshments. “The PTO also said goodbye to a few of our members who were moving on … Vice President Diane DeMayo, Treasurer Kim Preston and Secretary Paul Penachio. Kim Preston was the recipient of the PTO’s Community Service Award,” Veterans Memorial PTO Vice President Stacey Guarino said. The current PTO Board includes President Lisa Frost, Vice President Guarino, Treasurer Tanya DiGiralomo and Secretary Jean Bloom. “We had a board of seven members last year, and now we have four going into the 2017-2018 school year,”Guarino said.

Savvy Senior by Jim Miller

Auto Safety Devices That Can Help Seniors with Older Cars

Dear Savvy Senior, Do you know of any auto safety products that can help seniors with older cars? My 80-year-old father, who drives his beloved 2004 Toyota Avalon, is still a good pretty driver but he has limited range-of-motion, which makes looking over his shoulder to back-up or merge into traffic very difficult. Inquiring Son Dear Inquiring, To help keep your dad safe and extend his driving years, there are a number of auto aids and new safety technology products that can be added to his car to help with various needs. Here are several to consider. Backup Aids To help your dad increase his visibility when backing up, a simple product that can be added to his car is an AllView Mirror ($60, This is an oversized rear view mirror that attaches to his existing mirror to widen his rear visibility and eliminate blind spots so he can see traffic without significant neck or body rotation. It also helps during parking. Another option is a backup camera. These come with a weatherproof, night vision camera, which attaches to the license plate on the rear of the car. When the car is in reverse, it sends live images wirelessly to a small monitor that mounts to the dash or windshield. The Yada Digital Wireless Backup Camera ($140, Amazon) with 4.3” Dash Monitor is a good option. Or, if your dad doesn’t want a monitor in his car, the Auto Vox Wireless Backup Camera ($140, Amazon. com) is one that displays the images in a rearview mirror. Blind Spot Helpers To help your dad see better when switching lanes or merging into traffic, purchase your dad some “blind spot mirrors.” These are small convex mirrors that would stick to the corner of his side view mirrors to improve side and rear vision. They can be purchased in any store that sells auto supplies for a few dollars. Or, for a high-tech more comprehensive solution, there’s the Goshen Blind Spot Detection System ($239, Goshers. com). This system uses small sensors installed on each side of the rear bumper that monitor the sides of the vehicle, and will alert your dad with a light indicator, installed inside the car, if any object detected within 10 feet. Safety Products For extra safety, you may also want to consider a collision warning/lane departure device for your dad’s vehicle like the Mobileye 630. This is a smart camera that attaches to the windshield and will alert your dad if he speeds, drifts out of his lane, gets too close to the car in front of him, or gets too close to a pedestrian or cyclist. Sold only through retailers (see, this device can be purchased and installed by a Mobileye-certified technician for around $1,100. If you’re interested in something a little less expensive, there are also dashboard cameras that can double as collision warning systems. Garmin’s Dash Cam 35 ($129,, for example, monitors up to 130 feet in front of the vehicle, so if your dad is going 30 mph or faster, it will issue audio and visual alerts of impending collisions. Another product that can help keep your dad safe in emergency situations is the Hum ( This nifty device will automatically call emergency services if your dad has been in an accident. It also sends alerts to drivers’ phones if there’s a mechanical problem and lets driver’s press a button if they need roadside assistance. Hum works in cars built in 1996 or later, and costs $10 per month with two-year required subscription, and one-time set-up and activation fees totaling $50.
