Everett man pleads guilty to securities fraud Advocate Staff Report A n Everett man pleaded guilty on April 12, 2023, Advocate Online: www.advocatenews.net to exerting secret control over a Massachusetts-based company, Cannabiz Mobile, Inc., as part of a “pumpand-dump” securities fraud scheme. Christopher R. Esposito, 56, pleaded guilty to one count of securities fraud before U.S. District Court Judge Patti B. Saris, who scheduled sentencing for July 26, 2023. Esposito was charged in August 2022. Esposito and a co-conspirator, Anthony Jay Pignatello, worked together between 2012 and 2015 to conceal their control over Cannabiz Mobile, Inc. and to use backdated promissory notes to fraudulently obtain free-trading shares in the company. Among other steps taken to conceal their control, Esposito caused another individual to be installed as the company’s chairman, president and CEO. In reality, the executive reported to Esposito. Esposito and Pignatello then arranged for a promotional campaign in October 2014 to artifi cially infl ate the value and trading volume of Cannabiz Mobile’s stock so that they could secretly sell their shares. In total, between September 2014 and February 2015, Esposito personally sold over 1.3 million shares fraudulently obtained as part of the scheme. Pignatello separately pleaded guilty in March 2021 to conspiracy to commit securities fraud for his role in the scheme. He is scheduled to be sentenced on Sept. 12, 2023, before U.S. District Court Judge George A. O’Toole Jr. The charging statute for securities fraud provides a sentence of up to 20 years in prison, three years of supervised release and a fine of $5 million. The charging statute for conspiracy to commit securities fraud provides for a sentence of up to five years in prison, three years of supervised release and a fine of $250,000 or twice the gross gain or loss from the offense. Sentences are imposed by a federal district court judge based on the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and statutes that govern the determination of a sentence in a criminal case. U.S. Attorney Rachael S. Rollins and the Special Agent in Charge of the FBI’s Boston Division, Joseph R. Bonavolonta, made the announcement. Assistant U.S. Attorney James R.

Coach Freker said it has been an honor to memorialize Coach Serino all of these years. “He was a leader and mentor to hundreds of athletes and coaches. There is really no one in this region who has made such an impact on so many lives in the high school and college ranks,” said Coach Freker, who is now in his seventh year at Malden High, his second time around as head baseball coach of his alma mater. He was the head baseball coach at Saugus High from 2014-2016 and head baseball coach at Malden Catholic from 2000-2012, all of the years Coach Serino was Athletic Director. He coached baseball at Malden High from 1985-1999 previously, this being the 39th year coaching high school baseball for Coach Freker, who was inducted into the Bro.

While at Malden Catholic, Freker served under Serino, who was athletic director at the time, and also coached two of Coach Serino’s sons, Nick and Anthony. Both of the sons were D-1 scholarship baseball players at UMass-Amherst. Nick Serino went on to the professional ranks with the Toronto Blue Jays organization, one of eight professional MLB baseball players from Malden Catholic from 2003-2012. “We started the Serino Classic in 2014 at Saugus High and it was such a big success we brought it to Malden High when we returned here,” Freker said.

The program will also feature George Gershwin’s famous “An American in Paris,” Walter Piston’s “The Incredible Flutist” and George Walker’s “Lyric for Strings.” Tickets will be available at the door for $30.00 – seniors and students, $25.00 – and children 12 and under are admitted free. Tickets are available for advance purchase online at www. nspo.org. NSPO Music Director Robert Lehmann acknowledged that a double bass is an uncommon solo instrument. “When one thinks of orchestral soloists, one rarely thinks of the double bass,” said Lehmann, who is also a violinist and frequent solo performer himself. “The NSPO is about to change that. I think the audience will be enthralled by the rich and powerful tones that Susan Hagen will draw from the double bass, which usually toils away in providing the foundation for the rest of the Orchestra’s sound. Sunday, the double bass comes front and center.” Soloist Susan Hagen is the first female to occupy the principal bassist chair for the Boston Pops Esplanade Orchestra. In addition to her regular appearances with the Boston Symphony Orchestra, she has performed with the Boston Ballet Orchestra, Boston Lyric Opera Orchestra and many other groups in the area in solo reJ& • Reliable Mowing Service • Spring & Fall Cleanups • Mulch & Edging • Sod or Seed Lawns • Shrub Planting & Trimming • Water & Sewer Repairs Joe Pierotti, Jr. S LANDSCAPE & MASONRY CO.

She is on the faculty at Berklee College of Music and is a frequent lecturer at Harvard University. New York City native composer and pianist George Gershwin is renowned for his vast array of music that spanned popular, jazz and classical genres. “An American in Paris” is one of his best-known works for Orchestra, evoking the sights and energy of Paris that Gershwin experienced during a stay in the French capital in the 1920s. While the piece uses all the standard instruments of orchestral sound, perhaps its most memorable sound is that of horns emulating taxi cabs bustling through the city: Gershwin actually used four Parisian taxi horns for the 1928 premiere of the work at New York’s Carnegie Hall. The concert concludes the 75th anniversary year of the NSPO and its 74th concert season, having lost its entire 2020-2021 season to the Covid pandemic. Staffed largely by volunteer players, the NSPO is committed to providing access to quality music at an affordable price to communities north of Boston. The Orchestra strives to develop, train and provide opportunities for young musicians while providing a large range of programs covering the full range of symphonic and pops repertoire for a diverse public.

Provisions include combining the Child Care Expenses Credit with the Dependent Member of Household Credit to create one refundable $600 credit per dependent, while eliminating the current cap; exempt the fi rst $2 million, instead of the current $1 million.of the value of a person’s estate from the state’s estate/death tax that a person is required to pay following their death before distribution to any benefi - ciary; double the Senior Circuit Breaker Tax Credit from $1,200 to $2,400; increase the rental deduction cap from $3,000 to $4,000; reduce the short-term capital gains tax rate from 12 percent to 5 percent; raise the Earned Income Tax Credit from 30 percent to 40 percent of the federal credit; and replace the current business tax from the 3-factor apportionment based on location, payroll, and receipts with a single sales factor apportionment based solely on receipts. Another provision changes the tax refund distribution formula under a current law, known as 62F, that requires that annual tax revenue above a certain amount collected by the state go back to the taxpayers. Under current law, the money is returned to taxpayers based on how much he or she paid in 2021 taxes, while this tax relief package changes the formula and provides a fl at rate refund, unrelated to what the individual paid in taxes. The measure would also change a current law that provides when the state’s Stabilization Fund, also known as the Rainy Day Fund, exceeds 15 percent of budgeted revenues, the excess is transferred to the Tax Reduction Fund which eventually is returned to taxpayers. The Democrats’ tax relief bill would raise that percent to 25.5 percent. “We have been focused on how we can help the people of the commonwealth with the cost of living and make life a little easier, and we do so in this legislation,” said Revenue Committee House chair Rep. Mark Cusack (D-Braintree). “We have also focused on our economic competitiveness, and where we can lower and remove our outlier status to make Massachusetts a better place to live, work and invest and we do that in this package as well.” BEACON | SEE PAGE 11

THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – FRiDAy, ApRil 21, 2023 Page 11 BEACON | FROM PAGE 10 “With increases to the earned income tax credit, the senior circuit breaker and the renters deduction, there’s a lot in this bill that we can all support,” said Rep. Mike Connolly (D-Cambridge). “And yet, other parts of the bill, such as the big cut to the short-term capital gains tax rate, will disproportionately benefi t the very wealthy. In this time of unprecedented inequality, housing emergency and MBTA disaster, I believe we need to reconsider the provisions of this bill that are inequitable and will ultimately deprive us of the revenue we need to invest in our future.” “Despite the Chapter 62F changes, I voted for the underlying legislation because it will provide over $1 billion in tax relief to Massachusetts residents and business owners,” said Rep. Mike Soter (R-Bellingham). “Over the last three years, our state has seen a net loss of over 100,000people,” said Paul Craney, spokesperson for Massachusetts Fiscal Alliance. “As the full eff ect of the income surtax amendment begins to be felt, we’re absolutely going to see that trend continue, but this time with a cohort composed of our largest taxpayers. Our economic competitiveness rankings are in free fall. If our state government is to address this issue and head it off before it becomes catastrophic, they need to take bold action. The changes to the estate and capital gains taxes put forth by the House won’t cut it and the speaker’s attempt to gut the voter approved tax cap and rebate law known as 62F is nothing more than provocation to the taxpayers. (A “Yes” vote is for the $1.1 billion in tax relief. A “No” vote is against it). Rep. Joseph McGonagle Yes HOW TO DISTRIBUTE SOME FUTURE TAX REFUND (H 3770) House 26-128, rejected an amendment that would change the current law (known as 62F), approved by voters on the 1986 ballot, that requires that annual tax revenue above a certain amount collected by the state go back to the taxpayers. A few months ago, the law resulted in $2.9 billion being returned to taxpayers, using a formula based on how much each taxpayer paid in income taxes in 2021. In the House $1 billion tax reduction bill, the formula is changed so that each taxpayer will receive a fl at rate refund, unrelated to what they paid in taxes. The amendment would strike the change and revert back to the refund based on what a person paid in income taxes in 2021. “The Legislature needs to respect the will of the voters, and that means keeping the existing Chapter 62F tax law in place,” said sponsor GOP House Minority Leader Rep. Brad Jones (R-North Reading). “If we really want to change the law, we should not act unilaterally, but instead should hold public hearings to solicit input from the state’s taxpayers or put it before the voters again as a statewide ballot question to see whether there is actual public support for making those changes.” Opponents of the income-based amendment said the flat rate refund would ensure everyone in the state, regardless of income, will share equally in the state’s economic success. “This is a representative democracy, not a direct democracy,” said Rep. Sarah Peake (D-Provincetown). “Yes, there are some ballot initiatives, things that go on the ballot that come to us. And [as] often as not, we make tweaks to those ballot initiatives and change them after they are voted on by the people to make them better legislation. What recently comes to mind is the legislation and the ballot initiative that legalized the sale of cannabis in the commonwealth of Massachusetts. What appeared on the ballot is not what appears in our statute books today, so this isn’t some outlier. This is the common practice.” Massachusetts Republican Party Chair Amy Carnevale said the fl at rate refund changes the 1986 law from a refund into a government handout. “Instead of taxpayers getting a percentage based on what they paid to the state, the Democrats want to send just a fl at rate check to everyone. It is a redistribution of wealth. It is not fair. Your refund should be based on what you pay.” (A “Yes” vote is for the amendment distributing the refund based on what each taxpayer paid in taxes. A “No” vote is against the amendment and favors a fl at rate refund of the same amount for each taxpayer). Rep. Joseph McGonagle No RAISE TRIGGER POINT FOR TAX REFUND (H 3770) House 25-129, rejected a Republican amendment to a section of the Democrats’ tax relief bill that would change a current law that provides when the state’s Stabilization Fund, also known as the Rainy Day Fund, exceeds 15 percent of budgeted revenues, the excess is transferred to the Tax Reduction Fund which eventually is returned to taxpayers. The Democrats’ tax relief bill would raise that percent to 25.5 percent. The Republican amendBEACON | SEE PAGE 12

Page 12 THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – FRiDAy, ApRil 21, 2023 BEACON | FROM PAGE 11 ment would eliminate that change and revert to the current 15 percent formula. “When excess funding is transferred to the Tax Reduction Fund, that helps provide for some modest tax relief to the commonwealth’s residents by allowing for an increase in their personal exemption when filing their taxes,” said amendment sponsor Rep. Brad Jones. “The whole purpose of this bill is to make Massachusetts more competitive, aff ordable and equitable, but raising the threshold makes it less likely that taxpayers will actually get a break, which runs contrary to the stated goals of the legislation.” Opponents said that raising the cap will allow more money to remain in the Rainy Day Fund so that when it does “rain” and state revenues decline, the Legislature will not have to cut important programs or raise taxes. They noted hiking the cap is not without precedent, noting that the Legislature previously raised the cap from 7.5 percent to 10 percent in 2001 and from 10 percent to the current 15 percent in 2004. Rep. John Cusack (D-Braintree), chair of the Revenue Committee, did not respond to repeated requests by Beacon Hill Roll Call to comment on why he supports raising the cap. (A “Yes” vote is for the amendment making the cap 15 percent. A “No” vote is against the 15 percent cap and favors the 25.5 percent cap). Rep. Joseph McGonagle No NEW CABINET POSITION: SECRETARY OF HOUSING AND LIVABLE COMMUNITIES (H 43) Senate 39-0, approved and sent to the House Gov. Maura Healey’s reorganization plan that would split the current Executive Offi ce of Housing and Economic Development into two separate cabinet level departments: the new Secretary of Housing and Livable Communities and the renamed Secretary of Economic Development. “The creation of a new Secretariat will bring a cabinet-level focus to the commonwealth’s housing crisis,” said Sen. Nick Collins (D-Boston), Chair of the Senate Committee on State Administration and Regulatory Oversight. He noted that Gov. Healey who will now be able put her vision for housing and livable communities into action.” (A “Yes” vote is for the bill). Sen. Sal DiDomenico Yes ALSO UP ON BEACON HILL HOUSE WAYS AND MEANS COMMITTEE PROPOSES $56.2 BILLION FISCAL 2024 STATE BUDGET (H 4000) – The House fi red the second shot in the long battle over the state budget for fi scal year 2022 that begins on July 1. Gov. Maura Healey fired the opening volley in January when she fi led her version of the spending package. The House Ways and Means Committee last week unveiled its own $56.2 billion version. The Ways and Means budget recommendation would increase spending by $3.73 billion, or 7.1 percent over the current year’s budget. Debate on the House version is scheduled to begin during the week of April 24. After the full House fi nally approves a version of the package, the Senate will follow suit with its own draft, and a House-Senate conference committee will eventually craft a plan that will be presented to the House and Senate for consideration and sent to the governor. CHANGE “SELECTMEN” TO “SELECT BOARD” (S 12) – The Municipalities and Regional Government Committee held a hearing on a proposed constitutional amendment that would replace the gendered reference to “Selectmen” with “Select Board” in the state’s constitution. Supporters said it is long past time to eliminate this outdated and sexist language from the state’s constitution. “This is a change which many communities BEACON | SEE PAGE 13

THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – FRiDAy, ApRil 21, 2023 Page 13 BEACON | FROM PAGE 12 have already made in their local by-laws,” noted sponsor Sen. Will Brownsberger (D-Belmont). CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT TO HOUSING (H 29) – The Housing Committee held a hearing on a proposed constitutional amendment requiring that the state provide “suffi cient and comprehensive planning, for aff ordable, well-constructed and reasonably varied housing for all residents.” The housing policies would focus on restoration, rehabilitation and new construction of housing units to all identifi able population groups, without discrimination. “Housing needs to be a right, more than just ‘shelter’ and ultimately, looking at improved building codes, that would encourage construction of longer-lasting and better-quality housing that will help to keep our often expanding workforce, and their families, with dignity and quality,” said private citizen Vincent Dixon who sponsored the bill under a state law that allows a private citizen to ask their state legislators to fi le bills on his or her behalf. CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT TO EMPLOYABLE SKILLS TRAINING (H 39) – The Labor and Workforce Development Committee held a hearing on a proposed constitutional amendment providing that “each and every inhabitant of the commonwealth of Massachusetts, has a right to employable skills training.” “Employable skills training must be a fl exible and dynamic goal of economic, and professional mechanisms for the success of the Massachusetts workforce,” said sponsor Vince Dixon. “Looking forward, updating skills for workers in many fi elds, including those that change dramatically, will strengthen the lifelong ladder of workforce success and provide employers with better quality worker skills, and greater opportunities for success.” BRING BACK THE ANNUAL TIP OFF CLASSIC TO SPRINGFIELD – Rep. Angelo Puppolo (D-Springfi eld) and other Springfield officials have begun a campaign lobbying National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) President and former Bay State Gov. Charlie Baker to return the annual Tip-Off Classic game to Springfi eld, the home of the Basketball Hall of Fame. The city hosted the games for some 26 years at the former Springfi eld Civic Center from 1979 to 2005. “Basketball has been a part of the city since it was invented by Springfi eld College instructor and graduate student James Naismith in 1891 and has grown to a worldwide fan favorite through the years,” Rep. Puppolo wrote in a letter to Baker. “On the heels of a very successful Final Four Tournament, and given your commitment and dedication to Springfi eld and western Massachusetts as governor of the commonwealth, I am respectfully requesting that you now return the NCAA Tip-Off Classic to the City of Springfi eld, the city where basketball was born.” 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. They 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 April 10-14, the House met for a total of four hours and 18 minutes while the Senate met for a total of one hour and 19 minutes.

Page 16 THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – FRiDAy, ApRil 21, 2023 Red-hot Crimson Tide smokes three more foes to remain undefeated after six games Everett softball closes out school vacation week at home against Boston latin Academy Friday morning By Joe McConnell L ast Wednesday, April 12, the Everett High School softball team (6-0) continued its winning, dominating ways with a 18-0 triumph over visiting Lynn English. The game ended in the middle of the fi fth inning, because of another mercy rule decision. Everett pitcher Kristi Skane threw all fi ve no-hit innings, striking out seven, while walking one and hitting one batter. The Crimson Tide wasted little time to take control of this game. After loading the bases in the fi rst inning, Skane helped her own cause with a two-run single. Alexa Uga then tripled home two more runs. Bryanna Mason brought her home with a base hit. The Tide scored the sixth, and fi - nal run of the frame on a bases loaded walk. Coach Stacy Schiavo’s squad tacked on three more runs in the second inning. Skane and Uga drew walks to begin the team’s second off ensive surge of the game in as many innings. Ashley Seward followed with a tworun triple. Arabella Cvitkusic then knocked in Seward on a fi elder’s choice. The hits kept on coming in the third inning, which resulted in four more runs. Gianna Masucci drew a walk and stole second before Skane walked. Uga reached fi rst on a fi elder’s choice after the Bulldogs retired Skane at second base. But Mason followed with a three-run homerun to increase the English defi cit. In the fourth inning, the Tide completed its off ensive explosion with fi ve runs. Masucci started it off with a hit to left that got by the leftfi elder, which allowed her to circle the bases for a run. Later in the frame, Mason belted another three-run blast. Peyton Warren singled home the fi nal Everett run of the game. Skane then did the rest to secure her no-hitter after retiring the side again in the fi fth. “We had some players in different positions with some of the regulars out, but everyone nonetheless did an amazing job,” said Schiavo. “When the girls had an opportunity to hit, they hit the ball hard. Kristi did amazing in the circle while throwing to her sophomore catcher Emilia Marie-Babcok. Her defensive teammates were also on their game to help hold English scoreless on no hits.” Tide battles Cambridge in competitive matchup It was a more competitive game against host Cambridge at St. Peter’s Field two days later, but the scoreboard was still lopsided in favor of the Everett girls to the tune of 9-1. Skane went all seven innings, striking out 12 more batters while allowing five hits, one walk and one earned run. Cambridge led, 1-0 after one inning, but it was all Everett after that. The Tide took the lead for good in the second with three runs. Mason knocked in the fi rst run with a hit to right, and Marie-Babcock plated the next two with a hit of her own. The visitors accounted for three more runs in the fourth inning. Emma Longmore and Emilia Babcock each knocked in one with singles. Mason singled in a run in the fi fth inning, and Kayley Rossi tripled home a run in the next frame to close out the off ense. “This was a non-league game for us, but it was nice to play Cambridge again,” said Schiavo. “Their pitcher had some decent speed on the ball, but once we started hitting, she started to get a little wild. However, we did leave too many runners on base.” “Again, Skane and Rossi controlled the tempo of the game. Cambridge had some decent hitters, and they hit the ball hard a few times, but our defense made the plays when needed,” added the veteran Everett coach. “Emma Longmore’s double play was much needed at the right time to end a threat in the fourth. I’m happy to see the girls are getting up at the plate with more confidence and producing hits. We have 15 regular season games left, but we still are focusing on one game at a time.” No vacation for the Everett bats against Somerville The Everett girls certainly didn’t rest their bats to begin school vacation week on Monday against host Somerville. They once again showed no mercy, beating the Highlanders convincingly in the rain, 26-6. Skane pitched the first four innings, yielding four walks, six hits and fi ve earned runs while fanning fi ve. Peyton Warren pitched the final frame, before yet another game was stopped prematurely, because of the mercy rule. Warren walked two, but did whiff one. Rossi ignited the fi reworks in the fi rst inning with a double that drove home Longmore, who walked to lead things off . Babcock, who also walked, scored on a passed ball before Uga launched a two-run bomb to give her teammates a 4-0 advantage. The visitors tacked on six more runs in the second inning, led by Babcock’s threerun shot. Skane kept it going with a triple and scored on a hit by Rossi. Masucci then singled. Rossi and Masucci eventually scored on passed balls. The Highlanders got three back when they came to the plate in the home half of the second inning. But Everett then scored one more in the third on a solo shot by Rossi. The Tide now led, 11-3. Uga hit a double that turned into a homerun as a result of an error to start the fourth ining. Longmore then singled in two. Babcock knocked in a run with a base hit, as did Rossi, who then stole second to put runners in scoring position. Uga followed with a run-producing single before Ashley Seward blasted a three-run homer to end another big Everett inning. “This is the inning we knew we had to secure more runs,” said Schiavo. “Somerville was hitting the ball, and we could not aff ord to allow them to get anybody on base. The grass was wet, and the ball was moving quickly on it, so we couldn’t take anything for granted.” The Highlanders scored their fi nal three runs in the fourth inning, but their Everett counterparts weren’t done scoring runs when they came to the plate again in the fi fth. Arabella Cvitkusic started the fi fth off with a homerun. Longmore then singled, and Babcock tripled her home. Skane followed with a sacrifi ce fl y to account for another run. Rossi followed with a double and scored on a hit by Uga, who walked home on a two-run blast by Seward. It was another six-run uprising by the undefeated Tide. “The girls were hitting the ball well, constantly making contact on the sweet spot of the bat,” said Schiavo. “It was nice to see a few players who may have been struggling at the plate get hits today when needed.” “I never like getting that many runs, but I also did not want to hold the girls on base when they earned the hits they got,” added Schiavo. “Again, the pitchers controlled the ball well during the rain, and although we made some errors in the fi eld, we were able to bounce back with hits on off ense.” After taking on host Revere on April 19 (after press deadline), the red-hot Crimson Tide will return home to Glendale Park today (April 21) to go up against non-league Boston Latin Academy at 10 a.m.

Last Friday, April 14, at Somerville, the host Highlanders showed no mercy for their Greater Boston League (GBL) counterparts. The final score was 141, but it’s a loss where they can learn much about themselves. Amanda Verterio was credited with the lone Everett goal assisted by senior Rigirls who were simply more skilled than us at this point,” said coach Christina Buckley. “We had a hard time in particular stopping two of their players, who scored most of their goals. We played a much better second half, holding them to only four additional goals.” On Monday, April 17, against Revere, the Crimson Tide girls dropped a 10-1 decision. Avelar accounted for Everett’s only goal in this game on a solo effort. “We were much more competitive in this game,” said Buckley. “I know the score does not reflect it, but we forced numerous turnovers. However, we were unable to capitalize on them.” Amanda Verterio collected three shots on goal to lead the way in that department against the Patriots, and Katherine Olivares Guzman had two scoring chances. Sophia Sousa and Brigitte Reyes Cortez chipped in with one shot apiece. “We are currently 0-3 on the season, but coach Emily Korb and I have already seen improvements in each game,” Buckley said. “It’s hard to take the losses, but we are trying to build a program, and this is only Year 1. We are going up against varsity programs composed of girls who have played the game for years. We are a brand-new varsity team with girls who are new to the sport. We’re learning as we go.” “Moving forward, we plan to focus on defense by slowing the opposing team’s attacks at midfield and forcing players out of the 12 with good communication in order to be more competitive in the GBL,” added Buckley. Avelar is leading the team in points with two goals and one assist. Senior Sophia Sousa and junior Camille Camilo have been working hard all over the field to force those turnovers, according to Buckley, who added that freshman Amanda Verterio has a promising future after what she has shown in the early going. The Everett girls are now getting ready to take on host Malden on Monday, April 24, starting at 4 p.m.

By Steve Freker I t was certainly not great weather for a baseball game on Monday, Patriots’ Day, with on-and-off rain and drizzle accompanied by occasional downpours with mist and fog. But the runners loved it! There have been Boston Marathons in the past where the Patriots’ Day date may as well have been the Fourth of July with scorching, high 70s temperatures and blazing sun. Or perhaps it was 40 or below, with rain washing out everything along the 26.2mile course. But Monday’s weather was just right: not much sun, temps around 4550 and some intermittent rain keeping runners from overheating along the way. Nearly 50 runners from The Advocate readership area participated in the race and most finished. Here are the local results from Malden, Everett, Revere and Saugus: MALDEN (runner name and finishing time): Patrick Mangan, 3:15:14; Meghan King 3:36:08; Mervl Kaukko, 3:40:17; James Mandar t, 3:50:44; George Sacco, 3:50:47; Kirk Zmjijewski, 3:55.27; Joe LeBlanc, 4:16:20; Matthew Gavin, 4:24.31; Patrick Fitzgerald, 4:32.49; Alexandria Rodrigues, 4:36.24.

Their times are listed in this story. (Courtesy Photo) Malden-Revere HS game happen on Monday due to the weather; over 90% of scheduled games were cancelled There were over 200 varsity high school baseball games scheduled to be played on the Monday holiday. Patriots’ Day has been a special day for years on the regular-season high school calendar with most of the games played in the morning, right about the same time as the Boston Marathon. Of the 200 games scheduled for Monday, less than 10 percent of them – only 18 – ended up getting played! One of them was the Greater Boston League matchup between the host Malden High School Golden Tornados and the visiting Revere High Patriots. It was never “Off”... but the Malden-Revere HS baseball game on Patriots’ Day took a lot of work (and communication) to get the players on the field playing. For roughly five hours, offand-on, Malden and Revere athletic directors and coaches kept tabs on the weather, field conditions and numerous other factors (bus times, umpires’ availability) and even the game time, which ended up staying the same: 4:00 p.m. The game ended up being somewhat of a pitcher’s duel with Revere’s Kyle Cummings, a senior, battling against Malden’s Jake Simpson, a junior. Cummings ended up pitching the best game of his threeyear varsity career, scattering three hits, walking just two and striking out a career single-game high of 13 batters. Simpson threw zeroes through the first three complete innings, but a couple of untimely errors cost Malden some unearned runs. Revere won the game, 5-0, but it was still highly valuable to both teams – win, lose or draw (but you can’t “tie” in baseball – as they both avoided the spectre of “The Makeup Game.” Somewhere down the road when teams are rescheduling the game – 91% of them in Mass. did not play on Monday – at least two of them will be recalling why their schedule is not as jampacked as their future opponents’ schedules. **** Revere pitcher threw a gem... just a stone’s throw away from where his late Dad grew up in Malden There was an additional Malden connection in the Revere-Malden baseball game on Monday afternoon. The game was played at Rotondi Field in Malden instead of the usual Malden home field of Pine Banks Park. The park is just a stone’s throw and a couple of streets away from where the late father of the Revere High winning pitcher grew up in Malden. Kevin Cummings, a 1977 Malden High School graduate, who was a standout athlete himself in the late 70s in basketball and Babe Ruth baseball, passed away too soon at only 61 in October 2020. On Monday, Cummings’ son, senior Kyle Cummings, tossed a complete game gem in a 5-0 shutout win over his dad’s alma mater. With 13 strikeouts and only two walks, it was undoubtedly Kyle’s signature game of his varsity career. We are certain Dad was watching over and was very proud on Patriots’ Day. **** Who’s next as Everett High football head coach?

The visitors jumped out to an early 3-0 in the top of the first on a two-run single by senior Matt Turilli, but they were unable to hold the lead for long after giving up four when the home team came to the plate for the first time. Junior Alex Lara pitched four innings, and only allowed two earned runs. Turilli led his teammates on offense with two hits. “It was another game where early defensive miscues cost us some outs,” said coach Joel Levine. “Offensively, we left nine runners on base. We were unable to come up with the big hit while the game was close throughout the middle portion of the game.” “Once again, our pitching was [good], but if we to referred to recent circumstances around the Everett High School situation as the reason for his unexpected departure.

Frederick Cafasso, Chairman April 14, 21, 2023 newspaper offering free political advertising to a candidate in exchange for an interview. Philbin admitted to having dinner with Margaret Cornelio, Sergio Cornelio’s mother, who ran for city councillor in 2021. Philbin, along with his brother, stated he met with Mr. and Mrs. Cornelio, and their son, City Clerk Sergio Cornelio, at a Lynn restaurant, claiming he didn’t know why she wanted to meet with him. The attorney asked Philbin if the meeting was intended to provide information pertaining to the mayor and the city clerk’s real estate deal, which Resnek reported to be illegal, and to pave the way for a Boston Globe story. Shown an exhibit of an email between Resnek and Boston Globe reporter Andrea Estes about the lunch with Mrs. Cornelio, Resnek writes, “I loaded it up nicely. Mrs. Cornelio’s quarter page thank you helped things along. She’s paying but it won’t be much.” Philbin denied having any conversation with Resnek about offering advertising to Mrs. Cornelio as an incentive. He was then shown another email between Resnek and Mrs. Cornelio, where Resnek writes, “I am placing a quarter page ad for your campaign in Wednesday’s paper which will be distributed to every home in the city. Let me know about Sergio giving Andrea [Estes] a call or her giving him a call. Thanks. The ad is on Matt, and I don’t pay attention to the billing. Keep campaigning.” Philbin then admitted to the attorney that Resnek’s email to Margaret Cornelio states that he’s paying for the political ad. Philbin is shown another email from Resnek to him, stating, “Matt, we have taken care of Mrs. Cornelio as suggested/directed. All set.” Philbin claimed that he didn’t know what Resnek was referring to. Asked if he called Resnek and asked for an explanation, Philbin said he didn’t remember. Philbin admitted that Dorchester Publications, LLC is essentially a sham enterprise. He could point to no operating agreement, no corporate records and no assets other than tables and computers, according to his testimony. He had to pump $500,000 of his own money into the newspaper to pay the expenses, which included paying himself and his brother rent as they owned the Church Street building the paper operated from. There are no documents of any kind referencing any loan of any kind for the $500,000; instead, Philbin just paid it out of his personal accounts and the accounts of his various companies. During testimony, Atty. Jeffrey Robbins asked Philbin if he wrote checks from his own accounts to Dorchester Publications. Philbin replied, “I’ve transferred money from my account into Dorchester Publications.” An exhibit presented by the attorney showed an email dated from 2021 from his former vice president of operations, Elena Vega, where she provides Philbin with the yearly expense report for the newspaper, stating, “To date, you have contributed $97,305.32.” Philbin also testified that he paid for the purchase of the Leader Herald newspaper, yet records show that he paid nothing for the newspaper, but that rather, his father, Andrew T. Philbin, Sr. bought it from Elizabeth Curnane, wife of the late publisher Joseph Curnane, Jr. following his passing, and just gave it to him, according to evidence presented at the deposition. In documents provided by the elder Philbin to the mayor’s attorneys, there is an Asset Purchase Agreement between Everett Leader Publishing, Inc. and Andrew T. Philbin, or his nominee. Philbin questions the document’s signature despite being provided with multiple purchase and sale agreements between Mrs. Curnane and his father. “Do you have any evidence that you purchased the newspaper?” asked the attorney. “Yes, I believe there is,” replied Philbin. “What kind?” asked Robbins. “I don’t know,” said Philbin. Not knowing, remembering or recalling was par for the course. Next week: Philbin claims it wasn’t his policy to hurt the mayor.

THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – FRiDAy, ApRil 21, 2023 Page 23 SPORTS WIRE | FROM PAGE 20 career winning percentage (200-88) is the best among pitchers in the Modern Era with at least 200 career wins, just ahead of former Yankee great and Hall of Famer Whitey Ford (236-106, .690)? Wow. Like we said, we knew he was good, but not that good, with those numbers! **** SPORTS WIRE SHOUTOUTS: By the way, House of Pain’s former lead singer Everlast resurrected even more interest in the aforementioned great Yankees lefty in 1998 with the gem album: “Whitey Ford Sings the Blues,” which went triple-platinum with three million sold. The iconic and awesome top single off that record, “What It’s Like,” reached #13 on the charts of the Top 100... What we want to know is, did Everlast ever meet the real Whitey Ford, and, of course, did the big NYY lefty ever get any loot for the liberal use of his real name, no less, all over the rap world. The real Whitey Ford was only 70 when the Everlast record dropped, and he lived until 2020 (age 82), so must have got paid something, no? We’ll find out... There were two umpires working at the Malden-Revere game on Monday, but just one on the job in the Tornados’ previous game against Lynn Classical at Pine Banks Park. With a shortage of game offi cials in nearly every sport, including baseball, expect more of the same, says those in the know. JV and Freshman games already are having just one umpire due to the shortage these days... A couple of remarkable baseball nuggets: #1) Who is the only pitcher in Major League Baseball (MLB) history to throw a no-hitter on Opening Day? Answer Below... #2) Does anyone know these two things: A) What is Ichiro Suzuki’s real, legal name...on his Japanese driver’s license, for example, and why is he not enshrined in the Baseball Hall of Fame right now? Answer below, as well... Malden High senior tennis captain Naveen Nevalapuri is seeking his second Most Valuable Player nod in the Greater Boston League this year and is well on his way, having not lost a set in early play. Naveen is extremely active in extracurricular activities both with his senior class and as an Ambassador with the Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association (MIAA). ANSWERS: In all of major-league history, only one no-hitter has been pitched on Opening Day. Perhaps not surprisingly, it was thrown by the 21-year-old Cleveland Indians prodigy Bob Feller on April 16, 1940, against the Chicago White Sox on a blustery 40-degree day in Comiskey Park. The masterpiece was the fi rst of three no-hitters Hall of Fame Feller threw in his illustrious career, along with a remarkable 12 one-hitters. He had gone 24-9 on the mound the previous 1939 season for the Tribe... ANSWER #2: The name on Ichiro’s driver’s license in Japan is Suzuki Ichiro. In Japan, like in China and Korea, the fi rst name follows the family name. A person with the fi rst name “Ichiro” and the family name “Suzuki” is, therefore, called “Suzuki Ichiro” rather than “Ichiro Suzuki.” In 2001, with much fanfare, he became the fi rst player in MLB history (and only one to date) to have his fi rst name, “Ichiro,” emblazoned on his Seattle Mariners jersey. ~ Home of the Week ~ WAKEFIELD - 1st AD - Custom built, one-owner Contemporary offers 8 rooms, 3 bedrooms w/newer flooring, 3 ½ baths, updated kitchen with solar solarium, custom cabinets, granite counters, oversized island, bar area wit wine cooler, open to dining room, custom woodworking, hardwood flooring, stunning family room w/cathedral ceilings, fireplace, wet bar w/granite counters, slider to deck w/jacuzzi, den w/skylights, convenient 1st floor laundry, second floor balcony overlooking family room, primary bedroom w/private bath, walk-in closet & slider to balcony, finished lower level offers playroom w/ kitchenette, two car garage, private setting.

Page 24 THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – FRiDAy, ApRil 21, 2023 Massachusetts Estate Tax Exemption Increase T he Massachusetts House of Representatives on April 13, 2023 passed tax legislation that included increases in the rental deduction, reducing the short-term capital gains tax rate from 12% to 5%, creating a refundable child tax credit, a doubling of the circuit breaker tax credit from $1,200 to $2,400, increasing the earned income credit, several other provisions as well as an increase in the estate tax exemption from $1million to $2million. The increase in the estate tax exemption is a step in the right direction. $1million is simply way too small of an exemption. $2million is better but I’d like to see even higher. There are so many taxpayers over the $1million threshold that the state had to increase it. Too many people have moved to states that are more tax friendly. New Hampshire has no estate tax. Florida has no estate tax. Texas has no estate tax. For the few states that do have an estate tax, the exemptions are much higher than in Massachusetts. A $2million exemption is certainly much better than $1million but as real estate and the stock market continue to rise in the years to come, those exemptions might not go far enough. Say nir Sa a There may be down markets but inevitably the real estate market and stock market are bound to rebound if history repeats itself. Many taxpayers have simply relocated to more tax-friendly states in order to avoid not only the Massachusetts 5% income tax but to avoid the estate tax altogether. The federal estate tax exemption is now $12.9million. Although it is scheduled to sunset and drop back down to $6million in 2026, it is still much more than the exemption in Massachusetts. The good news is the house’s version of the new estate tax law provides for the estate tax to be assessed only on the value of the gross estate over $2million, not the fi rst $2million, once you surpass that threshold. A married couple can then structure their estate, if they so choose, in such a fashion as to leave $4million Massachusetts estate tax free to their children by making sure each spouse capitalizes on his or her $2million exemption. This increase in the exemption is long overdue. Let’s hope the Senate passes its version of the tax package quickly and a fi nal bill is agreed to. There are simply too many taxpayers that will continue to leave the state in order to avoid the Massachusetts estate tax. Even if they continue to own real estate in Massachusetts, they might be inclined to transfer their real estate holdings into limited liability companies to avoid having the Massachusetts real estate being subject to the Massachusetts estate tax. The non-resident will be deemed to own an intangible membership interest in a limited liability company that results in the value of the interest not being taxable in Massachusetts. This would be similar to owning stock in Tesla. As a Florida resident, the Tesla stock would not be subject to the Massachusetts estate tax. Joseph D.

I will turn 72 this year and want to be clear on what I’m required to do. Planning Ahead Dear Planning, Thanks to the SECURE Act 2.0 that was passed by Congress last December, there are several new rules that affect required minimum distributions (RMDs) from traditional IRAs, 401(k)s and other tax-deferred retirement accounts. These changes, which build on the original SECURE Act of 2019, are a benefi t to retirees by increasing the RMD age and lowering the penalty for missing a withdrawal. Here’s what you should know. New RMD Rules As of Jan. 1, 2023, the starting age for taking RMDs is now 73, up from 72. And it rises to age 75 in 2033. This change means that if you turn 72 this year, as you stated in your question, you can delay your RMDs one more year, allowing your savings in these accounts to grow longer, tax deferred. But once you turn 73 (next year), you must start taking annual RMDs from the tax-deferred retirement accounts you own – like traditional IRAs, SEP IRAs, SIMPLE IRAs, 401(k)s, 403(b)s and 457(b)s – and pay taxes on those withdrawals. Distributions are taxed as ordinary income in your tax bracket. There are, however, a few exceptions. Owners of Roth IRAs are not required to take a distribution, unless the Roth is inherited. And starting in 2024, Roth 401(k)s will not be subject to RMDs either. There’s also a work waiver for RMDs you should know about. If you are still working beyond age 73, and you don’t own 5 percent or more of the company you work for, you can delay withdrawals from your employer’s retirement plan until after you retire. But if you have other non-work-related accounts, such as a traditional IRA or a 401(k) from a previous employer, you are still required to take RMDs from them after age 73, even if you’re still working. Deadlines and Penalties Generally, you must take your distribution every year by Dec. 31. First timers, however, can choose to delay taking their distribution until April 1 of the year following the year you turn 73. But be careful about delaying, because if you delay your fi rst distribution, it may push you into a higher tax bracket because you must take your next distribution by Dec. 31 of the same year. Also note that you can always withdraw more than the required amount, but if you don’t take out the minimum, you’ll be hit with a 25 percent penalty (it was 50 percent) on the amount that you failed to withdraw, along with the income tax you owe on it. This penalty drops to 10 percent if you take the necessary RMD by the end of the second year following the year it was due. Distribution Amounts Your RMD is calculated by dividing your tax-deferred retirement account balance as of Dec. 31 of the previous year, by an IRS estimate of your life expectancy. A special rule applies if your spouse is the benefi ciary and is more than 10 years younger than you. IRA withdrawals must be calculated for each IRA you own, but you can withdraw the money from any IRA or combination of IRAs. If you own 403(b) accounts, they too allow you to total the RMDs and take them from any account or combination of accounts. With 401(k) plans, however, you must calculate the RMD for each plan and withdraw the appropriate amount from each account. To calculate the size of your RMD, you can use the worksheets on the IRS website – see IRS.gov/Retirement-Plans and click on “Required Minimum Distributions.” Or contact your IRA custodian or retirement-plan administrator who can do the calculations for you. For more information, see the “Distributions from Individual Retirement Arrangements” (publication 590-B) at IRS.gov/pub/irs-pdf/p590b. pdf. Send your senior questions to: Savvy Senior, P.O.
