Page 2 THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, MARCH 11, 2022 La Perle on probation for remainder of year By Christopher Roberson I n response to police reports and blatant license violations, the Board of License Commissioners voted 2-1 to put La Perle on probation for the rest of the year and to move the restaurant’s closing time to 11 p.m. The problems began following an after-hours party that took place on January 27. “Within six weeks I have had multiple police reports,” Board Chairman Philip Antonelli told La Perle owner Valery Joseph during the March 7 Board meeting, adding that hookah and bottle service were also brought to the board’s attention. “What possessed you, Valery, to bring hookah in the building?” In addition, Board Member Philip Arloro said he discovered a propane tank running inside the building. Antonelli said the decision to put the tank inside created an obvious fi re hazard. “The place could have burnt down,” he said. Attorney John Mackey, counsel for La Perle, said the board’s allegations were accurate. “Serious errors were made; they’re not denying it,” said Mackey. He said Joseph operated La Perle on Bow Street for a number of years without incident and has invested nearly $1 million to renovate the current building. Mackey also shared the possibility of the restaurant having a nightclub at some point. However, Antonelli would not hear of it. “There will never be a nightclub in Everett Square,” he said. “We are not entertaining anything of that nature.” ANGELO’S FULL SERVICE Regular Unleaded $4.199 Mid Unleaded $4.399 Super $4.499 Diesel Fuel $5.049 "43 Years of Excellence!" 1978-2021 KERO $6.99 DEF $3.49 9 Diesel $4.999 9 HEATING OIL 24-Hour Burner Service Call for Current Price!

(Advocate photo by Christopher Roberson) Arloro said Joseph should be aware of what activities are permitted under her current license. “It’s not up to this board to train La Perle on what they can and cannot do,” he said. The new 11 p.m. closing time will take eff ect on March 18. Other requirements issued by the board include operating the business only as a restaurant as well as providing the board with a list of management staff and all TIPS certifi cations. Airbnb proposal In other news, Ogo Joseph Ugeh, the owner of 20 Devens St., presented his proposal for an Airbnb on the property. “I like the idea of shortterm rentals; it’s a good thing for the community,” he said. Ugeh also said Airbnb, Inc. conducts background checks on all its guests. However, Antonelli did not agree. “That’s not true,” he said, adding that in May 2021 there was a fatal shooting at an Airbnb in Charlestown. In addition, Mei Yi Lan of 17 Devens St. was opposed to the idea of an Airbnb. “The street is very narrow; there’s not room for a business,” she said. Ugeh, a former Everett resident, said he now resides in Washington, D.C. In response, Antonelli said the city’s current zoning regulations require the property owner to live on the premises. Ugeh said he has a property manager who lives half a mile from the proposed Airbnb. However, Antonelli said a property manager does not take the place of the property owner. “A property manager doesn’t help the situation,” he said. Assistant City Solicitor Keith Slattery said that going forward a zoning change will be presented to the City Council that would no longer require the owner to live on site. “That’s something that we’re planning on doing very soon,” he said. Therefore, the board voted unanimously to postpose the proposal until the zoning change is approved.

Robert Hall will once again be running in this year’s Boston Marathon on April 18, joined by his daughter Rachael and her boyfriend Dominic Monzione. This will be Hall’s 11th year running the storied course which spans from Hopkinton to Boston. It also marks his 20th marathon overall since 2009. In addition, this will be Rachael’s third Boston Marathon and Monzione’s first time running the race. As with prior years, Hall will be running to raise money to benefit Cops for Kids with Cancer. “It’s a great cause,” he said, adding that much of his support has come from Everett residents. “It’s the best city in the Commonwealth; I want to thank people for their previous support.” Hall is looking to raise $12,500 this year. Online donations can be made at https://copsforkidswithcancer.org/bobby-and-rachelhall-2022/. He will also be running in memory of State Police Det. Lt. William Coulter. With more than 45 years of service to the State Police, Coulter competed in 20 Ironman Triathlons and 150 marathons, which included 36 Boston Marathons. A cancer survivor, Coulter was the chairman of Cops for Kids with Cancer and was a member of the Massachusetts State Police Commissioned Officers Association. Hall said training six days a week is one of the most difficult parts of the Boston Marathon, which is now in its 126th year. “Maybe this will be my last one,” he said, adding that another challenge comes on race day when tens of thouJames Mitchell, publisher of The Advocate Newspapers, Inc., presents a check to Everett Police Sgt.

Page 4 THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, MARCH 11, 2022 Malden Catholic names Joe Gaff as Football Head Coach M alden Catholic High School (MC) recently announced that Joseph Gaff has been hired as the Head Football Coach. Gaff brings an extensive football coaching background that includes 30 years of total coaching experience with 15 of those years in the position of Head Coach. He successfully served as Head Varsity Coach at MC from 2005 to 2008. Prior to Malden Catholic, Gaff served as both Defensive Coordinator and Head Coach at Boston College High School and helped lead the team to Super Bowl championships in 2008 and 2011. Before to his time in the Catholic Conference, Gaff had a successful run as Head Coach at Chelsea High School leading them to a Super Bowl. To complement his high school experience, Gaff also coached football on the college level at Tufts University. “Coach Gaff’s strong ability to connect with others, demonstrated drive to succeed and skills for developing talent the right way made Joe really stand out during the search for a coach. As we went through the process, Gaff checked off all the boxes and he is a perfect fit for Malden Catholic,” said Malden Catholic Athletic Director William Raycraft. “This is an exciting time for MC’s Football Program and there has been quite a buzz in the community regarding his hiring,” Raycraft added. Gaff is a 32-year veteran of the Everett Police Department and currently holds the rank of sergeant. “I am looking forward to honoring the successful tradition of Malden Catholic and continuing to build on the current football program,” said Gaff. “The pieces are in place for us to grow the program to the next level – where our students, staff and alumni expect to be. We will work hard to develop a physical football team that is dominant on both lines of scrimmage and has a dynamic balanced offense and an assertively stout defense.” Joseph Gaff MC Head Football Coach “Joe Gaff has not only proven himself an excellent football coach, but he has also shown both in his time at Malden Catholic in various coaching roles and through this hiring process, that he understands MC’s mission and deeply cares about our student-athletes,” said Malden Catholic Headmaster John Thornburg. “He is committed to their success both in the classroom as well as the field.” Everett celebrates Women’s History Month T he commemoration of Women’s History Month by the City of Everett – themed Project F.O.R.W.A.R.D. – is grounded in Mayor Carlo DeMaria’s Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) agenda to engage, educate and elevate in order to create a stronger Everett for everyone. With guidance and direction from First Lady Stacy DeMaria, this month will focus on ways to strengthen the economic progress of women throughout their lives. That includes the assurance that women-owned businesses have the tools and support necessary to equitably access opportunities to work with the city government. March’s activities will include support from several key City of Everett departments. The Procurement Department will host an educational session that provides key information for becoming a city vendor. Additionally, because of the mayor’s focus on expanding opportunities for women and girls to explore career and business opportunities that have been historically male dominated, this month the city will highlight and promote such opportunities through a Girl’s Day focused on public safety and trade careers. Girl’s Day will happen at the Everett Recreation Center. The March Lunch and Learn session will include a panel discussion with women who have successfully navigated male dominated career fields. Finally, the City of Everett will recognize women whose everyday lives and professional pursuits are strengthening and reinforcing the efforts for women’s advancement and equity through featured online profiles and a networking event to culminate the month’s activities. In both its 2021 annual report and report on the status of girls in the Commonwealth, the Massachusetts Commission on the Status of Women noted as a key finding the persistent vulnerable economic reality of women. Both reports assert that the financial inequity women face in Massachusetts is directly linked to the systemic oppression of girls and women. If women in Massachusetts are ever to reach pay equity, opportunities must be created and reinforced that bridge the gaps that long standing gender inequality has created in both the education and economic empowerment of women. The DeMaria Administration has consistently championed the advancement of women. Women hold key positions on his executive team and are a significant percentage of those employed in City Hall. Coupled with the mayor’s three-point DEI platform – Engage. Educate. Elevate. – the events and activities during the month of March will highlight best practices already underway and further address the economic vulnerability of women.

THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, MARCH 11, 2022 Page 5 McGonagle, House pass legislation to boost offshore wind development, reduce carbon emissions O n March 3, in an effort to meet the Commonwealth’s climate goals of achieving net-zero emissions by 2050, the House of Representatives passed by a vote of 144-12 a bill (H.4515) to further develop the off shore wind industry in Massachusetts. The legislation would also modernize Massachusetts’s electrical grid and energy storage infrastructure and create thousands of new jobs. “I’m immensely proud of the steps that the House took today to ensure Massachusetts remains at the forefront of renewable energy development,” said House Speaker Ronald Mariano. “Not only will this legislation help us reduce our carbon emissions and combat climate change, it will also spur economic development, modernize our energy infrastructure, and create thousands of new jobs in the process. I want to thank Chairman Roy for his hard work in advancing this legislation, as its passage today was undoubtedly a critical step in the right direction.” “I am absolutely thrilled by this legislation and grateful to my colleagues who championed it,” said State Representative Joseph McGonagle. “This bill is so benefi cial to the Commonwealth, fi rst by working towards clean, sustainable energy but also by creating thousands of jobs and giving students the opportunity to learn about this type of technology and environmental science. Massachusetts has always been and now will continue to be a leader on environmental issues and I’m so thankful we can capitalize on this opportunity.” On March 7 the Massachusetts Senate referred the bill, which is titled An Act advancing off shore wind and clean energy, to its committee on Ways and Means. The bill mandates the following: • Makes the Massachusetts off shore wind bidding process more competitive by removing a Joseph McGonagle State Representative current price cap that requires bids to be less expensive than previous procurements, which has deterred companies from participating in the procurement process. Future procurements would now include economic development, employment and environmental and fi sheries mitigation benefi ts. • Invests hundreds of millions of dollars over the next decade in infrastructure, innovation, job training, supply chain capacity, and transmission upgrades. The legislation consists of tax incentives, grants, loans and other investments. • Requires utility companies to proactively upgrade the transmission and distribution grid to improve reliability and resilience and accommodate the anticipated significant shift to renewable forms of energy. • Invests in long-term energy storage to help the Commonwealth’s transition to renewable energy. • Provides thousands of good-paying jobs with a focus on ensuring access and opportunity for everyone. • Creates a high school LIKE US ON FACEBOOK ADVOCATE NEWSPAPER FACEBOOK.COM/ADVOCATE.NEWS.MA off shore wind credential training pilot program through which the state Department of Elementary and Secondary Education would reimburse school districts for each student that obtains the credential. The legislation creates parity between electric and natural gas, imposing a charge for natural gas consumers to support renewable energy, similar to the charge electric customers currently pay. At a little more than $1 a month for the average customer, this is estimated to collect $23 million a year over the next 10 years to support the Commonwealth’s transition to clean energy. By diversifying Massachusetts’s energy portfolio, Massachusetts will become more energy independent and less reliant on imported natural gas that is susceptible to volatile price spikes, thereby helping to stabilize ratepayer bills in the long term.

Page 6 THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, MARCH 11, 2022 ~ Op-Ed ~ Everett community stands against discriminatory behavior in all forms By Mayor Carlo DeMaria n January, we committed to living the dream and be the legacy as advocated by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Dr. King said, “There comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular, but he must take it because conscience tells him it is right.” It has come to my attention I that a derogatory and racist meme was circulated by Everett City Councilor Anthony DiPierro. I have never felt it was more important for me to speak out as a member of the Everett community who stands against discriminatory behavior in all forms. A reference to a vile and derogatory word was in this meme. That word is entrenched in centuries of hurt and racial oppression in this country. Anyone who uses this word or distributes content that is racially insensitive or promotes any other form of discrimination must be reproached for such behavior. I want to assure all members of the Everett community that the City of Everett’s Human Resource’s Department has, in place, well-established practices to investigate any concerns or complaints alleging discriminatory or harassing behavior by any City employee or elected offi cial. In addition, we will be investigating additional alleged racist and discriminatory posts by other members of the Everett City Council. I strongly encourage anyone who has concerns to please contact our Human Resources Director Justin Shrader at Justin.Shrader@ci.everett.ma.us or 617-394-2280. Earlier this year we launched our Diversity platform with a commitment to engage, educate, and elevate every member of the Everett community. We stand by that commitment and will continue work towards building an Everett for Everyone. For more information about that work and to be involved in our eff orts, please contact our Director of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, Cathy Draine at Cathy.Draine@ci.everett. ma.us. This is a learning and growth opportunity for us all - a reminder that what we say matters. What we say can have a real impact on others, even if unintentional. Moving forward, may we all choose words and actions that build us stronger and better together. DESE records indicate Everett educators are certifi ed A By Christopher Roberson recent review of certifi cation status showed that nearly all teachers and administrators in the district hold the required license for their respective positions. “We’re on pretty rock solid ground,” said Superintendent of Schools Priya Tahiliani during the March 7 School Committee meeting. “The vast majority of our employees do have the required permanent license.” According to the state Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE), Tahiliani holds a provisional license for her position as superintendent. This license, which took eff ect on May 22, 2019, is valid for five years and cannot be extended or renewed. Deputy Superintendent of Schools Kim Tsai also has a provisional license which took eff ect on April 22, 2021. Assistant Superintendent of Academies Kevin Shaw, Remote Learning Director Anne Auger and Assistant Superintendent of Operations Charles Obremski all hold professional licenses which must be renewed every fi ve years. Shaw’s current license took effect on January 22, 2020; Auger’s license took effect on February 4, 2021, and Obremski’s license took eff ect on June 15, 2020. Chief Equity Offi cer Cory McCarthy was issued an emergency license on July 24, 2020, when he became vice principal of Everett High School. According to DESE, emergency licenses were issued as part of the state’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Although McCarthy’s license will remain valid until June 30, 2023, it is not required for his current position. In addition, Special Education Director William Donahue has held an initial license since July 23, 2018. This license is valid for fi ve years and cannot be extended. Tahiliani said there are currently two employees without licenses as it is still being determined if, in fact, those individuals need licenses. “Not every employee in our district requires a license,” said Tahiliani. Education licenses are not needed for Chief Financial Offi cer Anu Jayanth, Human Resources Director Francesse Canty, Budget and Grants Director Shirley Peng or Community Engagement Director Jeanette Velez. In addition, licenses are not required for paraprofessionals, family liaisons or administrative assistants. K-8 interim assessments In other news, Tahiliani said she is pleased with the results of the recent interim assessments for students in grades K-8. “The results are really encouraging and off er a counternarrative to what we’ve been hearing about learning loss,” she said. As this group of students returned to the classroom in September 2021, it was determined that 48 percent of them were behind by at least two grade levels. “This is what we were expecting coming into the school year,” said Tahiliani. However, data from the winter assessment showed that fi gure had decreased to 38 percent. In addition, Tahiliani said 28 percent of students in grades K-8 are now at or above their grade level. “It’s clear that our educators looked at the data, looked at where our students were and really changed their instruction,” said Tahiliani. “You don’t get growth like this otherwise.” COVID-19 update Tahiliani said that as of March 6 there have been six confi rmed cases of COVID-19 in residents ages 0-19. By comparison, 41 cases were reported in February. During its February 28 meeting, the School Committee voted 5-2 to make masks optional. However, Tahiliani said she and her colleagues still have their guard up. “We’re keeping a very close eye on it; we don’t want to be any less vigilant,” she said. ~ Letter-to-the-Editor ~ City Councillor Anthony DiPierro issues statement Dear Editor, A decision that I made to privately share a cartoon meme has recently been called into question. While I did not create this meme, I made a poor decision for sharing it and I truly apologize for my misjudgment. The casual use of the word in culture and society can desensitize its meaning and intention and I recognize what I did was wrong. The use of such word is never okay. I regret my decision to send that meme but will use this as a learning experience. The relationships that I have built and maintained throughout my life demonstrate who I truly am as a person. I ask those who know me, and more importantly – those who don’t to please, not let one mistake defi ne who I am as a person. I recognize the mistake I have made, take full accountability, and apologize to anyone who was hurt or offended by it. Signed, Anthony DiPierro Ward 3 City Councillor

And she’s just a Seventh-Grader! Corynne McNulty, who attends the Forestdale K-8 School and is in the seventh-grade class, has already achieved national notoriety with a U.S. Wrestling title at 119 lbs. last summer. She recently brought some fame home to Malden when Corynne defeated Miza Sambuzi of Central Catholic in the Finals of the 127 lb. class in the MIAA State Girls Wrestling Tournament. She dominated from frontto-back in the Finals matchup, eventually winning by a knockout score of 9-0, one of the most one-sided matches of the tournament. McNulty was able to compete at the high school varsity wrestling level due to an MIAA-granted waiver which allows seventh and eighth graders to compete. Malden High also uses this waiver in other sports, where middle school level sports are not available. Malden High’s Corynne McNulty, center, won the MIAA State Wrestling Championship at 127 lbs. recently and was honored with a municipal citation presented by Mayor Gary Christenson, left, and Malden Public Schools Director of Wellness and Athletics Charlie Conefrey, right. (Courtesy/City of Malden) McNulty was a member of the Greater Boston League Coop team which included members from Malden High, Everett High, Revere High, Chelsea High and Lynn. The coach was Malden High Head Coach Rin Van. With the latest State Championship by McNulty, Coach Van has now coached THREE State Champions. Two of the State Titles were captured by the same wrestler, Yohani Costa, in 2018 and 2019 ion the 158 lb. weight classes. “It’s a great accomplishment and Corynne deserves all that comes her way,” Coach Van said. “She is a very hard worker.” Corynne, accompanied by her family, was honored at Malden City Hall recently, when Mayor Gary Christenson presented her an official city citation, commemorating her State Championship. “It is so impressive to win a State Championship as an individual or as a team,” said Malden Public Schools Director of Wellness and Athletics Charlie Conefrey, who was in Framingham to witness the State Title Match, “but to accomplish what Corynne has done at such a young age is simply amazing. We can’t wait to see what she will be able to achieve in the future in the Golden Tornado program.”

THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, MARCH 11, 2022 Page 9 Mass. Gaming Commission not alarmed by Encore seating complaints By Christopher Roberson M embers of the Massachusetts Gaming Commission (MGC) did not seem overly concerned about recent grievances suggesting that Encore Boston Harbor had breached its indoor seating capacity. The matter first arose during the MGC’s public hearing on February 28 regarding the proposed East of Broadway project. At that time, Attorney Daniel Rabinovitz, counsel for the City of Medford, said Encore had repeatedly broken the law as it pertains to indoor seating capacity. “Encore has continually had concerts where seats have been sold and seats have been put in their ballroom that are between 1,000 and 3,500 seats,” he said. “That’s a straight violation of the law.” Therefore, Rabinovitz said, Encore should be fined or, at the very least, the MGC should send the casino a “very stern written warning.” “Encore is not interested at all in complying with this restriction about the number of seats that they can have,” he said. “If we find out that they’re going to have those kinds of events again, one of the things that my clients are going to consider is to file something in Superior Court for Injunctive Relief.” During the Commission’s Shown from left to right: Sgt.

Members of the Everett Police Department have been running in the Boston Marathon since 2013 and have raised more than $100,000 for Cops for Kids with Cancer. Established in 2002, Cops for Kids with Cancer has raised more than $4.1 million assisting 762 families with the escalating costs of cancer treatment. Each eligible family typically revives a gift of $5,000. CIGAR GIFT PACKS UNDER $50 R.Y.O. TOBACCO ---------TUBES On Monday, April 18, 2022, we will be running in the 126th Boston Marathon. This will be Bobby's 20th, Rachael's 3rd, and Dominic's 1st marathon. Cops for Kids with Cancer is a 501c3 non-profit charity that provides support for families with children battling cancer. As many of us are personally affected by cancer, it is especially heartwrenching to hear of a child with this disease. Families are each awarded $5,000.00 to help relieve some of the financial burden that often occurs during treatment. Over the years, Cops for Kids with Cancer has given over $4.1 million to hundreds of families in need.

The event is scheduled to take place on March 17 in Encore’s Picasso Ballroom. “Certainly, the MGC has been monitoring that issue,” said Wells. “I don’t want the public to think that we’ve disregarded it.” However, February 28 was the first time the MGC heard complaints about Encore’s seating capacity. “Nothing’s ever been presented before the Commission,” said Wells. She also disagreed with Rabinovitz that Encore had broken the law. “No determination has been made that an event between 1,000 and 1,500 [patrons] is necessarily a violation of the law,” she said. “That needs to be clear.” In addition, Wells said 1,000 seats may not even be available at the March 17 event. MGC Chairwoman Cathy Judd-Stein agreed that the Commission is not in a position to make a proper decision. “We’re not prepared to act without some additional information,” she said. Lawrence A.

THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, MARCH 11, 2022 Page 11 Baker issues CHA citation for Gambling Disorder Screening Day G overnor Charlie Baker issued a citation recognizing Tuesday, March 8 as Gambling Disorder Screening Day in Massachusetts, praising the Division on Addiction at Cambridge Health Alliance (CHA) for its “tireless efforts to spread awareness about Gambling Disorder throughout the Commonwealth.” Gambling Disorder leads to financial, emotional, social, occupational, and physical harms. It is a treatable mental health condition, yet many cases go undetected and untreated. Failure to detect gambling harm is due, in part, to limited screening for this problem. The Division on Addiction encourages all organizations and providers to participate in this annual event. “We join Governor Baker in commending the Division on Addiction for establishing Gambling Disorder Screening Day,” said Dr. Assaad Sayah, CEO of CHA. “Like many other behavioral health conditions, Gambling Disorder disproportionately impacts minoritized communities. Bringing much-needed attention to the need for routine screening for Gambling Disorder, and improving access to treatment through statewide professional development activities, will help alleviate these disparities in line with CHA’s mission to provide care to the people.” Gambling Disorder Screening Day is in its ninth year. This international event has grown to include screeners and supporters from Cambridge Health Alliance, Massachusetts and New England, the United States, and around the world. This year, Gambling Disorder Screening Day has more than 50 confirmed supporters and event hosts. They range from college health centers, employee assistance and wellness programs, prevention-focused organizations, community-based mental health organizations, gambling operators, and academics and researchers. The Division on Addiction distributed 1,350 free pocket screening guides to 27 Screening Day hosts in 17 states. “We’re so proud that people have embraced Gambling Disorder Screening Day. What started as a small grassroots effort in 2014 has grown to an international event with more participants than we ever anticipated,” said Dr. Debi LaPlante, director of the Division on Addiction and associate professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School. “We will continue to support this event for years to come and look forward to bringing more awareness to this issue. Our hope is that by helping people understand their own gambling, we’ll connect people to needed help and the path to recovery.” Because of lack of awareness about the need for routine screening and persistent Correction Officer Exam Registration Open for Middlesex Sheriff’s Office MSO offering $2,500 sign-on bonus for new officers B ILLERICA, Mass. – The Middlesex Sheriff’s Office is seeking correction officer candidates to join our 46th Basic Training Academy (BTA).

College remains a great investment in the future, so it’s important for families to make wise decisions when selecting a school and then creating a strategy to pay for it. But that process can be complicated. Here are five smart tips from the Massachusetts Educational Financing Authority (MEFA) to help students and parents make their college decision and determine a plan to pay the upcoming college bill. Consider financial fit: Choose a college that makes financial sense. Students and families should think about what they can afford to pay, and remember that this is, most likely, a four-year commitment. Carefully analyze financial aid offers, as the college with the highest sticker price might become more affordable based on the types of aid offered.

American Cancer Society and professional oncology community team up to provide international support for Ukrainian cancer patients M ore than 179,000 newly diagnosed patients with cancer are among the Ukrainian people suffering from Russia’s unprovoked aggression. In response, the American Cancer Society (ACS), in partnership with the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) and the Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center-Jefferson Health, is taking steps to support all Ukrainian cancer patients and their families, including migrant and multicultural communities. As an extension of their recent content-sharing collaboration, ACS and ASCO are making free cancer resources available in English, Ukrainian, Polish and Russian through their patient information websites at www.cancer.org/ukrainesupport and www.cancer.net/ukraine, with additional patient education resources planned. “Disruptions to cancer treatment pose a grave risk to the survival of Ukrainian patients with cancer,” said ACS CEO Dr. Karen Knudsen. “We, along with our invaluable partners, are committed to leveraging our expertise and vast network to help Ukrainian cancer patients and their families, as well as the Ukrainian oncology research and care community.” In addition, ACS, ASCO and Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center-Jefferson Health are engaging a network of oncologists and oncology nurses to provide support through ACS’s Clinician Volunteer Corps. This corps will serve as a resource to those in need in Eastern Europe by enabling health professional volunteers to work with American Cancer Society National Cancer Information Center (NCIC) team members to field inquiries from patients, family members and clinicians. NCIC specialists will answer calls and connect them to health professionals to address as appropriate. NCIC can be reached 24 hours a day at 800-227-2345. “The world’s cancer community is coming together in solidarity to provide support for the countless displaced patients whose cancer treatments have been disrupted and who now need help finding care,” said ASCO’s Chief Medical Officer/Executive Vice President, Dr. Julie Gralow. “As oncologists, our members are uniquely qualified to provide timely cancer information to help both healthcare providers and displaced patients in desperate need of cancer expertise. We’re calling on all those who are able to help, especially those who speak Ukrainian and other Eastern European languages from the region.” “Today healthcare professionals across the world are united in their desire to support Ukrainian people during this apocalyptic humanitarian crisis. We stand together with Ukrainian physicians and healthcare community to provide assistance and support to the most vulnerable, wherever necessary and possible,” said Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center at Thomas Jefferson University Hospitals’ Vice President of Cancer Services/Senior Administrator, Alex Khariton. “I believe that the focus on displaced cancer patients and families across the region would make a real difference.” ASCO members can sign up at international@asco.org. All other oncologists or oncology nurses can volunteer by completing the sign-up form at www.cancer. org/ukrainevolunteer. As a global organization, the American Cancer Society and its partners stand in solidarity with all Ukrainians, and its focus is on countries with the most need where it can achieve measurable results. Many cases of cancer can be prevented or treated successfully, especially if detected early. ACS notes, “We also work with partners throughout the world to help shape the global policy agenda as it pertains to global health and cancer control.”

THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, MARCH 11, 2022 Page 13 Thousands mourn, honor State Police Trooper Tamar Bucci A By Adam Swift sea of blue surrounded St. Anthony’s Church on Wednesday morning as more than 2,000 police officers from across the state and beyond joined family and friends to help lay State Trooper Tamar Bucci to rest. Bucci, 34, was killed on Thursday, March 3, when a tanker truck collided with her cruiser on Interstate 93 in Stoneham. Six female State Troopers who were in Bucci’s academy class served as pallbearers. Governor Charlie Baker, Lt. Governor Karyn Polito and Attorney General Maura Healey were among those standing near the entrance of the church as the procession made its way inside. Bucci’s stepfather, Jim Burditt, delivered one of the eulogies, remembering Bucci as a loving person who was both down to earth and in touch with a spiritual side. “She is now protecting all of us from above, and I am confident that we will continue to feel her presence here on earth,” Burditt said. Burditt also spoke of Bucci’s focus and commitment, which was evident even long before she became a State Trooper. “After listenTrooper Tamar Bucci’s mother and stepfather, Maral and Jim Burditt, and father Anthony Bucci (from left) watched as her coffin was brought out of St. Anthony of Padua Church on Thursday. Her pallbearers – each a female trooper who graduated from the academy with her – carried her coffin. (Advocate photo) ing to stories and laughing for hours, it is safe to say that if Tamar didn’t feel what was deep in her soul, she was not going to be 100 percent in; in fact, she was 100 percent out,” Burditt said. “What does that mean? Well, if her sister was driving her in her Barbie Corvette and she wasn’t having fun, she would jump out. “But one of the things she did feel deep in her soul was a passion for fitness. She worked out daily, ran a marathon and even did a bodybuilding competition.” State Police Colonel Christopher Mason eulogized Bucci as a trooper who had a calling to serve. “The colonel of the State Police has the privilege to speak to recruit classes directly at their graduation exercises,” said Mason. “At what was Tamar’s proudest day, I chose to speak to the 85th Troop Training Group about the responsibility to serve, to place the needs of others above their own, selflessly assist those who are vulnerable, those who are victims or survivors, those who are in need. I submit to you today that Tamar’s actions throughout her career embodied this sentiment far better than my words ever could.” State Police Chaplain Father Paul Clifford said that from the beginning of her life Tamar was involved in everything and engaging with everyone with her eyes focused on tomorrow. Clifford said Bucci was wise beyond her years and knew what it meant to serve and live for others. “Thank you for showing us how to be wise and to serve and protect,” said Clifford. “Thank you for reminding us how a light shines within us all.” Mass. Gaming Commission recognizes March as Problem Gambling Awareness Month T he Massachusetts Gaming Commission (MGC) is pleased to recognize March as Problem Gambling Awareness Month (PGAM). Established 20 years ago by the National Council on Problem Gambling, PGAM is a national outreach campaign designed to educate the public about problem gambling and the resources available. PGAM aims to generate awareness about the risks of gambling and urges action toward hope and recovery for those in need. The theme of PGAM is “Awareness + Action,” which is fitting as the MGC continues to advance the nation’s most comprehensive gambling research agenda and strives to mobilize it to reduce gambling harm. “The Commission’s ongoing research agenda has put into focus several factors that likely contribute to gambling-related harm,” said MGC Research and Responsible Gaming Director Mark Vander Linden. “With increased attention during PGAM, we aim to mobilize this research to create resources to promote safer levels of play and prevent gambling-related harm.” That robust research agenda has been underway for almost 10 years and has generated over 50 reports covering numerous aspects of gambling expansion in the Commonwealth, including social, economic and public safety impacts as well as responsible gaming evaluation. Research findings have provided vital information to inform the work of the MGC and stakeholders throughout Massachusetts. The MGC maintains a steadfast commitment to promoting responsible gaming by leveraging findings from its research agenda to create new and innovative player tools and resources. Last year the Massachusetts Gambling Impact Cohort (MAGIC), the first major cohort study of gambling conducted in the United States, was released. The findings from this study provided a framework to help develop a series of lower risk gambling guidelines which will be released this month. The MGC is also poised to release a white paper focused on gambling advertising, including a series of evidence-informed recommendations to reduce harm. The MGC research agenda is accessible on the MGC website. In recognition of a statewide commitment to increasing awareness, Governor Charlie Baker and Lieutenant Governor Karyn Polito have officially declared March as Problem Gambling Awareness Month across the Commonwealth, “urging citizens to take cognizance of this event and participate fittingly in its observance.” “The Massachusetts Gaming Commission is committed to promoting safe levels of play and reducing gambling-related harm by offering programs and initiatives that help understand and address problem gambling,” said MGC Chair Cathy Judd-Stein. “This is an all-hands effort and we are thrilled to partner with the Governor, Lt. Governor, stakeholders and casino operators in the Commonwealth to raise awareness.” To cap off PGAM, in late March, MGM Springfield will join Plainridge Park Casino as the first casinos in the country to offer a slot machine-based budgeting tool – called PlayMyWay – to help patrons manage their play. PlayMyWay allows patrons to voluntarily set a budget at the slot machine and receive reminders as they approach their budget. “During PGAM, it is our responsibility to raise awareness of programs, and resources for people who make the choice to gamble in the Commonwealth,” said Massachusetts Council on Gaming and Health Executive Director Marlene Warner. “It is also an opportunity to remind players to focus on positive play: a demonstrated effort to increase their gambling literacy and a commitment to a predetermined amount of money and time spent gambling.” The MGC encourages all casino employees and patrons to engage with its statewide brand and on-site responsible gaming program, GameSense. GameSense staff will educate casino employees and patrons on tips to keep play safe, support player health and access community-based support resources.

Page 14 THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, MARCH 11, 2022 Bread of Life’s Under One Roof feed’s the hungry B read of Life’s Under One Roof vision of feeding more families more efficiently in a new state-ofthe-art building has been delayed again by the COVID pandemic, but is still on track to becoming a reality. We moved out of 54 Eastern Ave, Malden during the Spring of 2021 in preparation for construction. Our temporary office is at 214 Commercial St., Suite 209, Malden and our temporary food pantry warehouse is at 109 Madison St., Malden. Although we were hoping to begin construction of our new facility in December 2021, we received a construction cost estimate that was much higher than originally estimated due to increased costs for labor and materials. We re-bid the project and in January received a lower construction bid. But even with the lower bid, we still need to raise just under $1 million for the project. We are seeking more financing from our bank, reaching out to existing donors, and working with the City of Malden which is assisting us in identifying funding sources for the gap. We are also reaching out to YOU, our valued supporter and friend, to help defray construction costs. You are the reason we are so close to accomplishing the goal of feeding more families in a safe and welcoming facility. Families will be nurtured Under One Roof, with access to a modern and updated food pantry, a kitchen to cook and serve evening meals, and a distribution center where patrons can “shop” and where we can package groceries for deliveries to vulnerable and atrisk senior residents.

Beacon Hill Roll Call records local representatives’ and senators’ votes on roll calls from the week of February 28-March 4. OFFSHORE WIND INDUSTRY (H 4515) House 133-12, approved and sent to the Senate a bill to further develop and expand the offshore wind industry in Massachusetts. Provisions include investing hundreds of millions of dollars over the next decade in infrastructure, innovation, job training, supply chain capacity and transmission upgrades; providing job training, tax incentives, grants and loans; investing in long-term energy storage to help the state’s transition to renewable energy; and implementing a new charge that would add an estimated $1.37 to the average gas customer’s monthly bill to raise an estimated $23 million in new revenue that would be used to fund the programs, tax incentives and grants. “I am thrilled that today the House passed legislation crucial to the development of a strong offshore wind industry in Massachusetts,” said Representative Jeff Roy (D-Franklin), House chair of the Committee on Telecommunications, Utilities and Energy. “Massachusetts waters have the greatest offshore wind potential out of the contiguous U.S. and this legislation THE FUTURE: Bread of Life’s 54 Eastern Ave. Northern Strand Trail entrance is shown in an architect’s sketch. cross the finish line. Any amount is greatly appreciated, and your generosity will will ensure that the commonwealth is prepared to harness that energy while also creating a just and robust local economy, educational opportunities for our residents and critical upgrades to our energy infrastructure without causing undue harm to our coastal habitats or maritime industries.” “I’m immensely proud of the steps that the House took today to ensure Massachusetts remains at the forefront of renewable energy development,” said House Speaker Ron Mariano (D-Quincy). “Not only will this legislation help us reduce our carbon emissions and combat climate change, it will also spur economic development, modernize our energy infrastructure and create thousands of new jobs in the process.” “While I completely agree that we need to do something about encouraging clean energy and offshore wind development, I think we could have found the funds in the current budget and not put the costs on the ratepayers,” said Rep. Colleen Garry (D-Dracut), the only Democrat to vote against the measure. “It is the economically challenged folks who can’t afford the major rehabs of older homes to save on gas and electric heating costs enable Bread of Life to feed more families and children in the years ahead. who will get hit with these charges. I believe this is definitely not the time to be adding more costs to homeowners with inflation and a slow economic recovery from the pandemic.” (A “Yes” vote is for the bill. A “No” vote is against it.) Rep. Joseph McGonagle Yes ELIMINATE THE ESTIMATED $1.37 PER CUSTOMER CHARGE TO FUND TAX CREDITS AND JOB TRAINING (H 4515) House 28-127, rejected an amendment that would eliminate a new charge that would add an estimated $1.37 to the average gas customer’s monthly bill. The estimated $23 million in new revenue would be used to fund training programs, tax credits and incentives for companies. “This would amount to about a two percent increase in a natural gas user’s bill each month,” said amendment sponsor Kelly Pease (R-Westfield). “It does not sound like a lot, but during these inflationary times and with gas and oil prices going out of control due to the Russian invasion of Ukraine, it is not the time to raise rates on the people of the commonwealth. The critics of the amendment said it would get rid of the trust fund which would do away with job training To donate, log on to: www. breadoflifemalden.org/under-one-roof and tax credits as well. This is true. By removing the funding it would eliminate those parts of the bill, but I believe that given the commonwealth is very financially strong that the trust fund and programs should be paid for out of existing state funds and not be putting the burden onto the citizens of Massachusetts by adding a rate increase to their monthly bills.” Rep Jeff Roy (D-Franklin), House Chair of the Committee on Telecommunications, Utilities and Energy, said that the amendment seeks to strike the meat and potatoes from all of the elements that will strengthen this industry. “The amendment would have eliminated provisions of the bill that make crucial investments into offshore wind and other clean energy technologies,” said Roy. “Massachusetts stands to realize significant economic gains by investing in our green infrastructure and workforce, and that’s an opportunity for our constituents that we cannot pass up.” Readers: Please read carefully what a “Yes” and “No” vote mean. ( The amendment was on striking the estimated $1.37 fee. Therefore a A “Yes” vote is against the fee. BEACON | SEE PAGE 20

Page 18 THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, MARCH 11, 2022 Everett High boys’ basketball falls to North HS in MIAA State Tourney opener, 66-54 Furious Crimson Tide comeback falls short at the end; North (20-3 overall) advanced, but fell to #1 BC High Senior John Monexant rolls the ball off his fingers, scoring two points. By Jason Mazzilli Tide senior John Monexant went for an open layup against a Worcester North High School defender in a physical game on Friday, March 4. T o coin a phrase from a well-known Hollywood movie franchise, the Everett High boys basketball team came back “fast” — and “furious”— last Friday night, in their opening game in the MIAA Division 1 State Basketball Tournament. But the solid, second-half comeback was still not enough in the end, as the visiting Crimson Tide were bounced out in round one, 66-54 by North High School of Worcester. Head Coach Stanley Chamblain’s Tide squad finished the season at 16-5 overall, as undefeated Greater Boston League champs (14-0), but disappointed with an early exit in the first-ever, true statewide tournament. The 16th-seeded North Polar Bears improved to 20-2 overall with the win on Friday night, but were eliminated themselves three nights later, 76-48 at the hands of #1 seed, unbeaten BC High (22-0). North took no prisoners in the first Crimson Tide junior Steven Cordero goes to the foul line for two to keep the game close. half Friday, building a commanding 19-point lead late in the second quarter to lead 47-28 at the halftime break. “Everett is a good team, and I knew we just needed to handle their press. We did a good job in the first half and got some easy transition baskets,” said North head coach Al Farriss, in an online report. “Then in the second half, they made a couple of adjustments, and we went back to our old ways, getting in the corner, turning the ball over.” Everett roared back, causing a whopping 20 turnovers over the final quarter, getting to 50-43 with 12 minutes left to play. But North held on, cut down the turnovers when it counted and also held the usual high-scoring Everett squad (usually in the high 60s) in a lower-scoring mode in the 12-point victory. North’s Oscar Pizarro led the way for the Bears, with 18 points, including two three-pointers. One key shot in the fourth quarter started an 11-2 run that pushed the North lead to 61-45 with 3:13 to play; a burst from Everett never did recover. The Polar Bears got a game-high 19 points freshman Ty Tabales, who drew six fouls, and a double-double from Gio Okla scored 16 points. Everett was led by Roger Vasquez’s 17 points, 13 from John Monexant and 12 by Steven Cordero. A Worcester North defender looks on as Everett’s high flyer Steven Cordero soars for a layup. Senior Cam Mohammed stylishly drops two points for Everett. Senior John Monexant pulls up for a three-point shot during the second round MIAA playoff game against Worcester North. A layup by senior John Monexant keeps the Crimson Tide alive early in the fourth period. Everett High School fans roar in support as the Crimson Tide gains traction in the fourth period.

Where the existing building is already non-conforming, any alteration shall not increase the existing non-conformity. Parking in accordance with this Zoning Ordinance shall be provided for any additional dwelling units.

As the menstrual equity coalition says, ‘non-menstruating people go into a bathroom expecting their basic bodily needs to be met— this is not the case for menstruators.’ This is now being seen as an issue because new generations are saying words out loud that used to be hidden by euphemisms, and they’re talking about needs that were unrecognized because they weren’t named.” (A “Yes” vote is for the bill).

More than a million people have fled Ukraine to neighboring countries, and even more are displaced within the country itself. As the fighting intensifies, so does the dire humanitarian situation and A needs on the ground. “The escalating conflict in Ukraine is taking a devastating toll. Casualty figures keep rising while health facilities struggle to cope,” said International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) Director General Robert Mardini. “We already see longterm disruptions in regular water and electricity supplies. People calling our hotline in Ukraine are desperately in need of food and shelter.” In Ukraine: aid amidst the violence During the past eight years, teams have been on the ground delivering assistance to at-risk families, including providing food, fuel for heating, medical supplies and support for housing. Under mortal danger to themselves, Red Cross teams are still working tirelessly to help people and communities impacted by conflict. Around the clock, teams are providing emergency aid amid fear and uncertainty. Red Cross teams have: • Distributed more than 90,000 food and hygiene parcels to families on the move across Ukraine, including Maripol • Provided first aid training to more than 12,000 people in metro stations and bomb shelters • Delivered more than 32 tons of food, blankets, medicine, medical supplies, trauma kits and household items. • Assisted with the evacuation of people with disabilities • Distributed critical care items to more than 7,000 people seeking safety from shelling in bomb shelters In the coming weeks, Red Cross volunteers will increase their work – reuniting separated families, providing food and other household items and increasing awareness about areas contaminated by unexploded ordnance. The current needs are tremendous; critical among them include water delivery, support to health facilities and medical care for wounded family members. In neighboring countries: help to those fleeing their homes People impacted by the conflict are heartbroken, as they are forced to flee from their homes.

In Poland, Hungary, Slovakia, Romania, Moldova, Croatia, Lithuania and Russia, Red Cross volunteers are supporting displaced people. Teams are: • Distributing food, water, clothing, bedding, hygiene sets and blankets and even handing out SIM cards so that families can stay connected amid the turmoil • Supplying baby products and services for children • Pitching tents and preparing shelters for refugees who need a comforting place to sleep and feel safe • Providing much-needed mental health/emotional support The role of the Red Cross The Red Cross has deployed crisis responders to Europe to provide humanitarian relief in neighboring countries. Additionally, in line with its work supporting military families, the Red Cross has sent trained staff to Europe to support emergency communication needs of U.S. military members, so they can stay in touch with family members back home. The Red Cross Hero Care Network is a Congressionally-chartered program that connects service members and their families in times of need. Red Crossers are also distributing comfort kits containing hygiene items and other necessities to service members and U.S. State Department staff. Blood services At this time, the Red Cross is not shipping blood products to Ukraine. The Red Cross does not ship blood products outside the United States without a specific request from the U.S. Department of State or the United Nations, or unless it has a request from affected Red Cross or Red Crescent societies abroad. International humanitarian law The ICRC called on authorities to adhere to international humanitarian law and to protect civilians and infrastructure delivering essential services, including power and water facilities, schools and hospitals. ICRC President Peter Maurer requested protection for humanitarian action so that aid agencies can maintain access to civilians. The ICRC has also called for parties to agree to terms so safe passage of civilians is possible. Resources for people affected in Ukraine The ICRC has published a list of resources for people needing urgent help in Ukraine, including medical care, evacuation support, mental health support, shelter and safety tips. How to find a missing loved one Those unable to get in touch with U.S. citizens missing in Ukraine or Russia should contact the U.S. Department of State Overseas Citizens Services Office online or at 1-888407-4747. Telecommunication systems in the region have been affected. Some family members are still able to keep in contact with each other, but the situation is rapidly changing as fighting continues. As of now, most affected civilians have been maintaining their own family links via cell phones. Red Cross teams continue to work together to assess how to help restore family links given considerable challenges on the ground.

Sen. Sal DiDomenico Yes 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 filed. They note that the infrequency and brief length of sessions are misguided and lead to irresponsible late-night sessions immediately preceding the end of an annual session. During the week of February 28-March 4, the House met for a total of six hours and 24 minutes and the Senate met for a total of four minutes and 28 minutes. Mon. Feb. 28 House 11:00 a.m. to 11:13 a.m. Senate 11:00 a.m. to 11:36 a.m. Tues. March 1 House 11:01 a.m. to 11:40 a.m. No Senate session Wed. March 2 No House session No Senate session Thurs.

MEFA | FROM PAGE 11 lies make sense of the financial aid provided and determine the net price of each college. Estimate earning potential: To help make the college decision, find out how much graduates from each college earn in wages after graduation, based on major. Knowing an estimate of potential earnings can help determine whether a college’s cost is worth the investment. The U.S. Department of Education’s College Scorecard provides data on median earnings broken down by field of study for U.S. colleges and universities. Borrow federal student loans first: If you plan to borrow loans to pay for college, maximize federal student loan options before borrowing a private loan by submitting the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Federal student loans have low interest rates and more flexible repayment options than private loans. In addition, federal student loans do not require a credit check or a co-borrower, and repayment is deferred until after the student leaves college. Use a monthly payment plan: If there is one “best kept secret” to paying for college, this is it: the monthly payment plan. Most colleges and universities offer one for a small, one-time sign-up fee. Instead of paying a lump sum before the semester beings, families can submit payments over 10 to 12 months, interest free. This is a great way to manage cash flow and minimize borrowing. It’s like making a monthly loan payment, without the accruing interest or credit check. Borrow wisely: When it comes to student loans, borrow as little as possible. Because borrowers pay back the amount of the loan plus interest, loans increase the overall cost of college and can take years to pay off. Make a plan to pay your college bill with as little debt as possible. You might be approved for a large loan, but it doesn’t mean you have to take the full amount. ~LEGAL NOTICE~ NOTICE OF MORTGAGEE’S SALE OF REAL ESTATE By virtue and in execution of the Power of Sale contained in a certain mortgage given by Regina S.

Page 26 THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, MARCH 11, 2022 DPH updates COVID-19 death definition Revised data capture more accurately the acute impact of COVID-19 in the Commonwealth B eginning on Monday, March 14, the Massachusetts Department of Public Health (DPH) will update the criteria used for identifying COVID-19 deaths to align with guidance from the Council of State and Territorial Epidemiologists. Currently, the COVID-19 death definition includes anyone who has COVID-19 listed as a cause of death on their death certificate, and any individual who has had a COVID-19 diagnosis within 60 days but does not have COVID-19 listed as a cause of death on their death certificate. The updated definition reduces this timeframe from 60 days to 30 days for individuals without a COVID-19 diagnosis on their death certificate. The revision follows the recommendation of the Council of State and Territorial Epidemiologists (CSTE), in collaboration with the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), to create a standardized approach for states to use for counting COVID-19 ~ LEGAL NOTICE ~ CITY OF EVERETT ZONING BOARD OF APPEALS 484 BROADWAY, ROOM 24 EVERETT, MASSACHUSETTS 02149 617-394-2498 To Whom It May Concern: This notice is to inform you that a public hearing will be held on Monday, March 21, 2022 at 6:00 PM, Everett City Hall, 3rd Floor George Keverian Hearing Room.

The building will contain a mixed use that will include sixteen residential units and two commercial units.

The applicant is requesting Relief from the City of Everett Zoning Board of Appeals for a Use Variance to make this a Mixed-Use Building. Parking will be completed through the TDM Mary Gerace - Chairman Roberta Suppa - Clerk Board of Appeals March 4 & 11, 2022 deaths. Several other states are adopting this definition. Massachusetts has applied this new definition retroactively to the start of the pandemic in March 2020. As a result, 4,081 deaths in Massachusetts that were previously counted as associated with COVID-19 will be removed. In addition, approximately 400 deaths not previously counted but identified through a manual process of matching death certificates with medical records will be added to the COVID-19 death count. The state’s overall COVI.-19 death count, therefore, will decline by 3,700. “We are adopting the new definition because we support the need to standardize the way COVID-19-associated deaths are counted,” said DPH State Epidemiologist Dr. Catherine Brown. “Prior to the CSTE definition, states did not have a nationally recommended definition for COVID-19 deaths and, as such, have been using a variety of processes and definitions to count their deaths. In Massachusetts, our definition has consistently been broader than most other states. After a deep dive into our data and reviewing thousands of death certificates we recognize that this updated definition gives us a truer picture of mortality associated with COVID-19.” “It is important to understand that we cannot identify all COVID-19 deaths with 100 percent accuracy,” said Nicolas Menzies, associate professor of Global Health at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. “The revised definition for COVID-19 deaths is a reasonable balance between sensitivity and specificity and will make it easier to compare Massachusetts death data with data from other jurisdictions.” “Updating this important metric is a necessary step to help us better gauge the current severity of the pandemic and its impact on our health system and society as a whole,” said Dr. Helen Boucher, interim dean of Tufts University School of Medicine. “The ability to be nimble and quickly adapt to changing circumstances demonstrates Massachusetts’ continued leadership in COVID-19 data reporting and analysis.” Early in the pandemic, and absent clear national guidance, DPH matched COVID-19 surveillance case information with death certificates to identify deaths in people who tested positive for the virus but did not have COVID-19 listed as a cause of death.

THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, MARCH 11, 2022 Page 27 AG Healey opens grant application period for eighth annual youth summer job program A ttorney General Maura Healey recently opened the eighth annual application period for her office’s summer jobs grant program for young people across the state Healey’s Healthy Summer Youth Jobs Program enables young people to have a direct impact in their communities by working in jobs that promote good nutrition, physical fitness, and healthy living. This year’s program is funded with money from settlements reached by the AG’s Office that will be available for organizations to hire young people for jobs that COVID-19 | FROM PAGE 26 sociated death, anyone who tested positive for COVID and died was counted as a COVID-19-associated death regardless of the length of time between their diagnosis and their death or whether COVID-19 was listed as the cause on their death certificate. This approach was overly broad and led to an over counting of COVID-19-associated deaths. Beginning in April 2021, based on the growing knowlfocus on health and wellness. “Since 2015, we’ve built strong relationships with organizations across Massachusetts to create opportunities for young people to learn new skills, challenge themselves, and make a difference in their communities,” said Healey. “We’re pleased to launch the eighth year of this program to continue to cultivate positive work experiences for young people during the summer months.” Last year, the AG’s Office awarded nearly $300,000 in grant funding to 75 organizations across the state. As edge about COVID-19 and an analysis of deaths in Massachusetts up to that point, DPH updated the way it counted deaths. COVID-19-associated deaths still included anyone with COVID-19 listed as a cause of death on the death certificate but DPH also applied a 60-day timeframe from diagnosis to death for anyone diagnosed with COVID-19 but who did not have COVID-19 on the death certificate. This latest update further reduces the timeframe between diagnosis and death from 60 part of the program, Healey’s Community Engagement Division provided webinars and in-person trainings on workers’ rights to teens employed through the grant program. Examples of jobs funded through last year’s grant program include: Building and maintaining a community garden or urban farm; Addressing food security and wellness needs of low-income communities; Providing educational content on the environment and local natural resources; and Instructing youth on recdays to 30 days for individuals without COVID-19 listed on the death certificate. The new definition will be reflected in the COVID-19 interactive dashboard data on Monday, March 14. Beginning Monday, all calculations involving deaths posted in the COVID-19 dashboard and the raw data file will contain the updated data. Previous raw data files will still be available on the website and will not be updated. Deaths in long-term care facilities (LTCF) will continue reational and wellness activities. Since launching the grant program in 2015, Healey has funded more than 1,000 jobs for young people across the state. The AG’s Office will issue grants to municipalities, other government offices, quasi-public entities, and non-profits within the state. Nonprofit applicants must be in full compliance with statutory requirements for annual filings with the AG’s Non-Profit Organizations and Public Charities Division. Grantees must pay employed youth a minimum wage of to be reported directly from those facilities, but the updated definition will align surveillance deaths more closely with the LTCF-reported counts. Several new data points and some changes in functionality and visualizations are also being added to the COVID-19 dashboard, beginning Monday. No data are being eliminated and the changes are designed to enhance the interactive experience for dashboard users and to ensure compliance with Americans with Disabilities Act requirements. $14.25 per hour. The office will prioritize applicants who are seeking to hire low-income youth workers with the grant funding. Grant awards will fund youth employment from July 5 through Sept. 2. Interested applicants can visit the AG’s website for more information and for application instructions. Applications must be received by 5 p.m. on Friday, April 8.
