Because of these health effects and the current surge in e-cigarettes and vaping devices, which contain nicotine, the Malden Board of Health maintains a comprehensive inspection program for all establishments with Permits for the Sale of Tobacco and Nicoation to see if there are additional restrictions to follow. In past years, the City of Malden began winter parking restrictions on November 1. This year the City decided to delay the start of the winter parking regulations until the forecast showed pending weather that would require the City to sand and/or plow citywide. This proved benefi cial as residents were able to enjoy an additional 11 weeks of unrestricttine Delivery Products. These inspections include the use of underage persons to conduct compliance checks by attempting to purchase tobacco or nicotine delivery products. Penalties range from a $50.00 fi ne to permanent permit revocation for a third violation. The Malden Board of Health would ask all parents and guardians to talk to your children about the hazards of tobacco and nicotine products, including vape devices.

With the uncertainty of the storm predicted for Sunday, the bitter cold that will follow and the following week showing several days of potential snow, the City has decided that the time has come to commence winter parking restrictions so that streets may be properly plowed and treated.

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE - Friday, January 18, 2019 Page 3 City Councillors clash over Open Meeting Law W By Barbara Taormina ard 4 Councillor Ryan O’Malley faced blistering criticism from fellow councillors this week after accusing city offi cials of intentionally violating the open meeting law and proposing that councillors reassess the appointment of City Clerk Tom Brennan. Jadeane Sica Council President Ryan O’Malley Ward 4 Councillor “Councillor O’Malley, your actions over the past week are inexcusable,” said Council President Jadeane Sica at the close of this week’s brief meeting. The trouble started at a Jan. 8 City Council meeting when O’Malley announced that he planned to record an executive session, or closed-door meeting, to determine if minutes from a 2015 executive session on an appraisal of the Malden Hospital site should be released to the public. While most municipal business must be done in public, elected offi cials can hold executive sessions on several types of issues, such as personnel matters, legal strategies and contract negotiations. Councillors objected to O’Malley’s plan to record the meeting, and the lawyers were called in. The city solicitor advised O’Malley not to record the meeting. “Rather than respect the opinion given by the solicitor, or even stating your disagreement and asking that we table the meeting to get further guidance, Councillor O’Malley, you stated to the council that you were going to do what you wanted,” said Sica. “This blatant disregard for any sense of order is unacceptable.” The meeting was postponed, which gave Sica the chance to reach out to the Attorney General, who said that recording an executive session should only take place if the council votes to approve it. It also gave O’Malley an opportunity to fi le a complaint with the Attorney General that the council was violating open meeting law. According to O’Malley, the minutes from the 2015 executive session were never reviewed or approved by the council. He suggested that the version of the 2015 minutes that does exist was somehow doctored. “I had serious concerns that the meeting minutes that were presented by the City Clerk Thomas Brennan were substantially diff erent from what actually occurred at the December 8, 2015 meeting,” O’Malley wrote in his complaint. “I specifically had concerns that the meeting minutes may not accurately reflect the attendees of the meeting or what was actually said at the meeting,” he said. O’Malley’s complaint also focused on the council’s approach to reviewing and documenting executive sessions and releasing records to the public once confi dentiality was no longer needed. “It is my belief that the City Council is grossly in violation of the Open Meeting Law because of this specifi c incident related to the attempt to review and approve three-year-old meeting minutes and the longstanding habit of never regularly approving executive session meeting minutes,” he wrote. O’Malley also singled out Brennan for failing to provide councillors with copies of minutes from several recent executive sessions. “It is my sincere belief that Malden City Council and its staff are knowingly, intentionally, and chronically violating the Open Meeting Law,” he wrote. O’Malley followed up his complaint by proposing this week that the council hold an additional executive session to evaluate Brennan’s appointment. “I think it’s no secret that we as a council and a community need to evaluate the operation of the City Clerk’s Offi ce,” he said. “I do believe that circumstances have MEETING | SEE PAGE 9 AUTOTECH 1989 SINCE Are You Cold Weather Ready!

DeMaria went on to say that she agrees with O’Malley that the council needs to tighten up its handling of executive session records. And she added that O’Malley’s call for accountability is admirable. “However, the Ward 4 Councillor’s current activities are at best, overzealous and arguably concerning,” DeMaria said. “We, as a council, need to be guided not only by our conscience, but by a process. Hasty decisions made in open meetings, or executive sessions, even with the best intentions, set a dangerous precedent.” Sica was less generous in her response to O’Malley’s complaint to the Attorney General and his call to evaluate Brennan. She acknowledged that the council needs to improve the way it handles records from executive sessions, but she criticized O’Malley for not trying to fi rst solve the problem collaboratively with other councillors. “Your actions tell me you were once again more interested in being troublemaker than addressing the issue,” she said. She suggested that O’Malley was pursuing a “Watergatelike conspiracy” to hide altered meeting minutes and added she hopes he will apologize to the individuals involved. “I won’t sit idly by while city employees are mistreated, while rules are blatantly disregarded and while your interests are put ahead of the interests of the city,” said Sica. She urged O’Malley to follow Coach Bill Belichick’s advice to the New England Patriots and just do your job. “It worked well for the Patriots this weekend and will surely benefi t your constituents better that the games you’ve become distracted with,” she said. dine drink gather enjoy THE NORTH SHORE'S HOTTEST NIGHTCLUB!

The proposal would utilize the existing regulatory structure for gaming licensing in Massachusetts, including enforcement powers of the Massachusetts Gaming Commission (MGC), the prohibition on wagering by anyone under 21 years of age and penalties for various violations. “Expanding Massachusetts’ developing gaming industry to include wagering on professional sports is an opportunity for Massachusetts to invest in local aid while remaining competitive with many other states pursuing similar reguFUNDRAISING NIGHT! for the Beebe School Fundraiser Night Thursday, Flyers will be accepted 3PM-10PM Raffle table 5PM-7PM M Present this flyer and the Beebe School will receive a percentage of your total food purchases es ebe tage 19 ed February 7, 2019 ool t lations,” said Governor Baker. “Our legislation puts forth a series of commonsense proposals to ensure potential licensees are thoroughly vetted and safeguards are in place to protect against problem gambling and illegal activity. We look forward to working with our colleagues in the Legislature to pass this bill into law.” “Over the last seven years, the Massachusetts gaming industry has grown into an economic driver for thousands of jobs associated with construction, hospitality and tourism,” said Lt. Governor Karyn Polito. “The Massachusetts Gaming Commission has developed a comprehensive set of regulations, and passing this bill into law will allow the proper oversight of the industry’s next chapter in addition to providing critical support to the Commonwealth’s cities and towns.” The administration’s propos(617) 381-9598 31 Mystic View Rd. - Everett al would authorize the MGC to issue newly created sport wagering licenses to the current Category 1 resort casino licensees (MGM-Springfield and Encore-Everett) as well as the Category 2 licensee (Plainridge). A current gaming license would be required to operate an on-site sports wagering lounge. Such opportunities would be extended to a Category 1 licensee should one be approved for Region C in the future. Additionally, holders of newly created gaming licenses would be able to provide sports wagering online, or contract with an entity to provide the service. Online sports pool operators would need to be licensed as a gaming vendor, and the agreement would need to be approved by the MGC.

Onlineonly operators would need to be fully qualifi ed and licensed by the MGC as a sports wagering licensee under the current process set forth by the Expanded Gaming Statute. The application fee for an initial license would be set at $100,000 under this proposal with the funds dedicated to supporting the MGC’s administration of the application process. Once approved, an applicant will pay a licensing fee of not less than $500,000 that will need to be renewed every five years. In-person sports wagering licensees would pay a tax rate of 10%, and online wagering licensees would pay a rate of 12.5%. The revenue generated from renewals, in-person and online wagering would exclusively go to the Gaming Local Aid Fund to fi nance local aid distributions, mirroring the current system for directing revenue from the Category 2 licensee. To level the playing fi eld, a 12.5% tax rate would also be applied to daily fantasy sports contests, which are currently untaxed. The administration anticipates this proposal would generate $35 million in revenue in the upcoming Fiscal Year 2020 that will benefi t all 351 cities and towns in the Commonwealth. The legislation calls on the MGC to promulgate necessary regulations to implement sports wagering, including protections for people placing wagers, a cashless system for sports wagering and a verifi cation system to approve age and identity of potential online users. The MGC will also be asked to include the impact of sports wagering on individuals, businesses and the economy in its annual research report, in addition to annual assessments on non-Category 1 or 2 licensees to help support compulsive gambling support programs. Similar to the Commonwealth’s current regulations governing daily fantasy sports, wagers would not be permitted on high school, collegiate or amateur events. Wagers would also not be permitted on esports. Prices subject to change FLEET COME TO

Parents Committee launches charter review By Barbara Taormina T he committee appointed to review and revise Malden’s City Charter sat down for its fi rst meeting this week. Members made it offi cial by electing former strategic planner, current Parking Department director and all-around problem solver Ron Hogan as chairman of the committee and City Councilor Debbie DeMaria as vice chair. Maria Luise from Mayor Gary Christenson’s office and Councilors Ryan O’Malley and David Camell are also serving on the committee which will have plenty of support from former City Clerk Karen Anderson and former Clerk of Committees Sheila Fermano. The committee, which is now officially the Mayor’s Committee on Charter Revision, mapped out some general goals and guidelines for the review which they hope to complete by the summer. Anderson advised the committee not to focus too much on the charter’s current organization which she described as “a mess.” Instead, committee members will review the charter by topics such as the election of the mayor, and the composition of the council and other city boards and commissions. Hogan suggested that committee members look at the charters for other communities, particularly those that have recently undergone charter reviews. “I also fi nd it helpful to see what other cities have,” he said. “When you read them, you realize that’s something we should have.” Committee members also agreed they should meet with offi cials from diff erent boards and branches of city government such as the School Committee and the Police and Fire Commissions when those topics are being discussed. The Committee is on a fast track to present their recommendations in time to place any proposals for signifi cant changes to city government on the ballot of this year’s municipal election. Generally, however, any charter changes and revisions will go fi rst to the City Council for approval and then to the mayor. The revised charter will then be sent to the state legislature and the governor for approval. The charter, which was consolidated last year, is now available on the city’s website at www.cityofmalden.org/content/city-charter.

Page 8 THE MALDEN ADVOCATE - Friday, January 18, 2019 Keeping happy and not SAD during winter W by inter is one of the hardest times of the year for many, and feelings of sadness, loss or isolation are very common, especially among older adults. The days are cold and short with less light for Vitamin D; there are fewer nutrient-rich foods around and it’s harder to get exercise than in the nice months. It’s all a recipe for high anxiety and suff ering from a type of depression called Seasonal Aff ective Disorder (SAD). Depression is the most common ailment in those aged 60 and over. People suff ering from SAD can set themselves into a depression and cannot get into the holiday spirit. Here are some positive steps that may help you feel healthier this winter. Acknowledge your feelings and let yourself off the hook. It is okay not to feel cheerful all the time. Reach out. Being alone and lonely are not the same thing, but if you are feeling particularly isolated, please seek out your community. Book clubs, activity groups in your building, senior centers, volunteering and civic or religious organizations are good places to start. Broaden your friendships. Do not abandon healthy habits. Be kind to your body and mind by maintaining your self-care practices. Eat well and get plenty of sleep. Take a breather. Make some time for yourself. Even if you spend plenty of time on your own, dedicating time to spend on yourself will help you return to yourself. Seek professional help if you need it. You may find it empowering to face the winter with your own health and well-being in mind. However, despite your best eff orts, you may feel persistently sad or anxious, unable to sleep and dismayed by even routine tasks. If these feelings last for a while, ask for help. If you need professional help, Mystic Valley Elder Services operates a Mobile Mental Health program for older adults who need professional mental health services but are unable to leave their homes for treatment or counseling. Through its Mobile Mental Health program, clinical caseworkers provide outreach to elders experiencing mental health conditions that impact their functioning and ability to get their needs met. To fi nd out more about this program, call us at 781-324-7705. Could You Have Glaucoma? Dear Savvy Senior, What are the warning signs for glaucoma? My 65-yearold brother lost some of his vision because of it but never had a clue anything was wrong. Could I be at risk too? Concerned Sister Dear Concerned, It’s called the “silent thief of sight” for a reason. With no early warning signs or pain, most people that have glaucoma don’t realize it until their vision begins to deteriorate. Here’s what you should know. Glaucoma is a group of eye diseases that can damage the optic nerve and cause vision loss and blindness if it’s not treated. This typically happens because the fl uids in the eye don’t drain properly, causing increased pressure in the eyeball. There are two main types of glaucoma, but the most common form that typically aff ects older people is called open-angle glaucoma. This disease develops very slowly when the eye’s drainage canals become clogged over time, leading to blind spots in the peripheral or side vision. By the time you notice it, the permanent damage is already done. Are You at Risk? It’s estimated that more than 3 million Americans have glaucoma today, but that number is expected to surge to more than 4 million by 2030. If you answer “yes” to any of the following questions, you’re at increased risk of developing it. • Are you African American, Hispanic/Latino American or Asian American? • Are you over age 60? • Do you have an immediate family member with glaucoma? • Do you have diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, migraines or extreme nearsightedness? • Have you had a past eye injury? • Have you used corticosteroids (for example, eye drops, pills, inhalers, and creams) for long periods of time? What to Do Early detection is the key to guarding against glaucoma. So if you’re age 40 or older and have any of the previously listed risk factors (especially if you’re African American), you need to get a comprehensive eye examination every year or two. Or, if you notice some loss of peripheral vision, get to the eye doctor right away. If you are a Medicare benefi ciary, annual eye examinations are covered for those at high risk for glaucoma. Or if you don’t have vision coverage, check into EyeCare America, a national program that provides free glaucoma eye exams and there are no income requirements. Visit EyeCareAmerica.org or call 877-887-6327 to learn more. While there’s currently no cure for glaucoma, most cases can be treated with prescription eye drops, which reduce eye pressure and can prevent further vision loss. It cannot, however, restore vision already lost from glaucoma. If eye drops don’t work, your doctor may recommend oral medication, laser treatments, incisional surgery or a combination of these methods. For more information on glaucoma, visit the National Eye Institute at NEI.nih. gov, and the Glaucoma Research Foundation at Glaucoma.org. Send your senior questions to: Savvy Senior, P.O.

Th e deadline is not etched in stone because even though the vast majority of proposals are fi led by January 18, many late-fi led bills are admitted to the Legislature following the deadline and throughout the 2-year session. In the recent 2017-2018 session, legislators fi led more than 6,000 bills. Massachusetts is one of a handful of states that give citizens the “right of free petition”-the power to propose their own legislation. A citizen’s proposal must be fi led in conjunction with his or her representative or senator or any other representative or senator. Sometimes a legislator will support the legislation and sponsor it along with the constituent. Other times, a legislator might disagree with the bill but will fi le it anyway as a courtesy. In those cases, the bill is listed as being fi led “by request”-- indicating that he or she is doing so at the request of the constituent and does not necessarily support it. Citizens that are interested in fi ling legislation should contact their own or any other representative or senator. You can fi nd the contact information for your local representatives at https://malegislature.gov/Legislators/Members/ House and for your local senator at https://malegislature.gov/ Legislators/Members/Senate If you don’t know who your legislators are, you can look them up by your street address and city or town at https:// malegislature.gov/Search/FindMyLegislator Perhaps one of the most famous bills filed “by request” goes all the way back to 1969 when a constituent opposed to the Vietnam War asked Newton Democratic Rep. James Shea to fi le a bill prohibiting Massachusetts citizens from being forced to fi ght in an “undeclared war.” Th e bill challenged the constitutionality of sending Bay State men to fight without a Congressional declaration of war. It was approved by the House and Senate and signed by then-Gov. Francis Sargent. Th e new law made national headlines. To comply with the new law, Massachusetts initially fi led a complaint in the U.S. Supreme Court. Th e high court declined to hear the case, which was later refi led in the U. S. District Court federal court and dismissed -rejecting the state’s argument that President Richard Nixon had usurped the war-making powers of Congress. In a tragic footnote, Rep. Shea committed suicide in the fall of the year the legislation passed. HOW LONG WAS LAST WEEK’S SESSION? Beacon Hill Roll Call tracks the length of time that the House and Senate were in session each week. Many legislators say that legislative sessions are only one aspect of the Legislature’s job and that a lot of important work is done outside of the House and Senate chambers. They note that their jobs also involve committee work, research, constituent work and other matters that are important to their districts. Critics say that the Legislature does not meet regularly or long enough to debate and vote in public view on the thousands of pieces of legislation that have been fi led. Th ey note that the infrequency and brief length of sessions are misguided and lead to irresponsible late-night sessions and a mad rush to act on dozens of bills in the days immediately preceding the end of an annual session. During the week of January 7-11. the House met for a total of 19 minutes while the Senate met for a total of eight minutes. Mon. January 7 House 11:03 a.m. to 11:06 a.m. Senate 11:06 a.m. to 11:10 a.m. Tues. January 8 No House session No Senate session Wed. January 9 No House session No Senate session Thurs.

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE - Friday, January 18, 2019 Page 9 Aviation Inspectors at Logan, R.I.’s T.F. Green, and Worcester Regional Airports warn of safety concerns amidst partial government shutdown BOSTON – As the partial government shutdown moves into its fourth week, aviation safety specialists across New England and the country are speaking out to warn passengers that skeleton inspection staffi ng is lowering safety standards at airports throughout the country. While a handful of inspectors were mandatOffi ce (FSDO), where he serves as an Aviation Safety Inspector, Safety Program Manager and National Resource Inspector. Brown’s statement continues: ed back to work this week under “emergency” conditions, many remain sidelined by the shutdown, meaning more fl ights across the region are taking off without independent oversight by qualifi ed aviation safety specialists at the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). Now those inspectors are speaking out, saying skeleton crews are not enough to keep the skies as safe as possible for area passengers. While airline companies might conduct their own checks, the FAA safety inspectors charged with double-checking the works of those airlines and ensuring companies play by the rules have been sidelined since December 22. It’s a major concern for all travelers, say the workers who conduct the inspections. “The government shutdown has put a tremendous strain on the workers, but more so I believe it has put a strain on the aviation industry and its safety,” said Stephen K. Brown in a statement released today on behalf of employees belonging to the Professional Aviation Safety Specialists (PASS) union. Brown, a resident of Belmont, N.H., works at the FAA’s Boston Flight Standards District MEETING | FROM PAGE 3 uate Brennan overstepped the council’s Personnel and Appointments Committee, which has been monitoring and evaluating city departments and staff , including the city clerk. “This is a delicate process that warrants our respect,” said Councillor-at-Large Debbie DeMaria, who now serves as vice chair of the Appointments Committee. DeMaria went on to say that she agrees with O’Malley that the council needs to tighten up its handling of executive session records. And she added that O’Malley’s call for accountability is admirable. “However, the Ward 4 Councillor’s current activities are at best, overzealous and arguably concerning,” DeMaria said. “We, as a council, need to be guided not only by our conscience, but by a process. Hasty decisions made in open meetings, or executive sessions, even with the best intentions, set a dangerous precedent.” Sica was less generous in her response to O’Malley’s complaint to the Attorney General “With the government shutdown and the furlough of Aviation Safety Inspectors across the nation, this line of defense on regulatory and safety oversight has just disintegrated. Aviation Inspectors, like myself, have been forced to cease inspections on the airworthiness and operations of many commercial entities, from the large major air carriers down to the local commercial fl ight school. The nation and the public are now in a position where there is little to no oversight on all these commercial operations, yet they are allowed to operate. Unscrupulous or naive operators and operations can be conducted within our system without any regulatory oversight, inspections or investigations. While some inspectors are being recalled, we are all essential to the safety of the National Airspace System and should all be on the job for the American fl ying public. Historically, inspectors like Brown had been classifi ed as excepted employees and would have been required to work. However, that was changed in 2013 with the nation’s second-longest shutdown. On Monday some of Brown’s colleagues were called back to work on an “emergency” basis, but it’s unclear how long that will last for – and when the services will return to being fully staff ed. and his call to evaluate Brennan. She acknowledged that the council needs to improve the way it handles records from executive sessions, but she criticized O’Malley for not trying to fi rst solve the problem collaboratively with other councillors. “Your actions tell me you were once again more interested in being troublemaker than addressing the issue,” she said. She suggested that O’Malley was pursuing a “Watergatelike conspiracy” to hide altered meeting minutes and added she hopes he will apologize to the individuals involved. “I won’t sit idly by while city employees are mistreated, while rules are blatantly disregarded and while your interests are put ahead of the interests of the city,” said Sica. She urged O’Malley to follow Coach Bill Belichick’s advice to the New England Patriots and just do your job. “It worked well for the Patriots this weekend and will surely benefi t your constituents better that the games you’ve become distracted with,” she said. PASS National President Mike Perrone spoke at a federal employee rally on Capitol Hill last week and said, “We stand with those in the labor and aviation communities to let Congress and the White House know that this government shutdown hurts the employees we proudly represent and impacts the ability of the Federal Aviation Administration to conduct important safety-related functions.

Cataldo “YOUR FINANCIAL FOCUS” CHILD TAX CREDIT UNDER THE NEW TAX ACT he child tax credit in the amount of $2,000 per qualifying child is allowed for calendar year 2018. A qualifying child for purposes of the child tax credit is a child who: 1. is claimed as your dependent on your tax return; 2. was under the age of 17 at the end of 2018; 3. is your (a) son, daughter, adopted child, stepchild or a descendent of any of them (for example, your grandchildren); or (b) brother, sister, stepbrother, stepsister, or a descendent of any of them (for example, your niece or nephew) whom you cared for as you would your own child; or (c) foster child (any child placed with you by an authorized placement agency whom you cared for as you would your own child; and 4. is a U.S. citizen or resident alien. An adopted child is always treated as your own child. An adopted child includes a child placed with you by an authorized placement agency for legal adoption even if the adoption is not fi nal. An authorized placement agency includes any person or court authorized by state law to place children for legal adoption. Remember, the child tax credit is a “dollar for dollar” tax credit and not simply a deduction to be utilized in order to reduce your otherwise taxable income. It was the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act passed by Congress in 2017 that provided for the increase additional child tax credit is refundable in an amount equal to the lesser of the portion of the child tax credit the taxpayer cannot claim due to the tax liability limitation or 15% of the taxpayer’s earned income in excess of $2,500. If the taxpayer has three or more qualifying children, the threshold is the excess of the from $1,000 to $2,000. There is a $500 tax credit allowed for each qualifying child for whom the credit is not otherwise allowed and for each qualifying relative. An example might be a parent whom you are caring for or a child who happens to be age 17 or older at the end of calendar year 2018. The child tax credit begins to phase out when modified adjusted gross income reaches $400,000 for joint fi lers and $200,000 for any other filing status. The tax credit is reduced by $50 for each $1,000 of income over these thresholds. A portion of the child tax credit is refundable for all taxpayers, regardless of the amount of the taxpayer’s regular tax or alternative minimum tax liability. For calendar year 2018, the taxpayer’s share of social security taxes over his or her earned income for the year. The additional child tax credit may not exceed $1,400 per qualifying child under the age of 17. The $500 partial credit for any other dependent is not refundable. The additional child tax credit is claimed on Schedule 8812. Do not overlook this valuable tax credit when preparing your income tax return. It is a valuable “dollar for dollar” tax credit which can reduce your tax liability substantially. It is much more valuable than a “tax deduction,” which will only serve to reduce taxable income. If, for example, you are only in a 12% tax bracket, a $1,000 deduction would save only $120 in taxes. The doubling of the child tax credit signifi cantly helps taxpayers as there are no more personal exemptions allowed under the new tax act. The personal exemption was slated to be $4,150 prior to the enactment of the new law.. Joseph D.

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE - Friday, January 18, 2019 Page 11 E-CIGS | FROM PAGE 1 Charlie Conefrey and many parents and Malden High School students. Mastrangelo introduced the panel and immediately addressed the vaping issue, stressing it aff ects all students, regardless of age, gender, academic or any other status, whether they are directly involved in vaping or not. In addition to endangering their own health by inhaling the nicotine and other vapors through JUUL devices, the students who congregate in bathrooms are invading the privacy of students using the facilities for appropriate reasons, the MHS Principal said. “Students avoid certain bathrooms for these reasons and that is just not fair to them or anyone,” he said. “Some schools and some districts have thrown up their hands on this issue and are not sure how to proceed since it has become so widespread,” Mastrangelo said. “We are not doing that here. We are going to monitor this issue closely, keep our students safe and informed. This is a school, they are here to learn and we are drawing a line in the stand on vaping. We are not tolerating it and we are making that very clear at Malden High School.” Buzby, who coordinates programs to try and educate young people and all regional residents about the dangers of statewide, one of the few such regulations in the nation. Lewis has also strongly supported eff orts from communities who have instituted local bans on sales of fl avored cigarettes and e-cigarettes in pharmacies and health-care product stores. “We have worked very hard and will continue to do so to monitor the sales of these prodMHS Principal Chris Mastrangelo addresses the audience Thursday night at the MHS Gallery smoking, said that while smoking has dramatically declined in the region over the past decade, particularly among young people of high school and college age, “vaping” through e-cigarettes or the JUUL devices has skyrocketed. “We have seen and experienced huge increases in the use of these devices. It has become a multibillion dollar industry and the tobacco companies are jumping on board,” Buzby explained, noting the rapid rise of vaping has been deemed “an epidemic” by U.S. Surgeon General Jerome Adams. “I am offi cially declaring e-cigarette use among youth an epidemic in the United States,” Adams said at a December news conference. “Now is the time to take action. We need to protect our young people from all tobacco products, including e-cigarettes.” According to an online report, the surgeon general’s advisory called on parents and teachers to educate themselves about the variety of e-cigarettes and to talk with children about their dangers. Health professionals should ask about e-cigarettes when screening patients for tobacco use, the advisory said. Surgeon General Adams also advised that local authorities should use strategies, such as bans on indoor vaping and retail restrictions, to discourage vaping by young people. Sen. Lewis, who introduced Buzby and was instrumental in organizing the presentation, serves as the chair of the state legislature’s Joint Committee on Public Health and has been at the forefront of the statewide movement to discourage and regulate tobacco use, including e-cigarettes and vaping. Lewis shepherded legislation raising the age to purchase tobacco products, including e-cigarettes and JUUL devices, to 21, Advocate 1.
