However, the vote was later voided as it was determined that the committee did not have a quorum. Therefore, the budget hearing has been rescheduled for May 11. The operating budget totals $98.8 million, an increase of $10.6 million over last year. Some of the larger individual school budgets include $18.5 million for Everett High School, $9.7 million for the Lafayette School, $7.7 million for the Parlin School and $5.4 million for the Whittier School. During the April 27 budget hearing, Ward 4 Member Dana Murray said the city’s contribution of $36.4 million is insuffi - cient. “We looked at our children and said, ‘Sorry, but you just don’t rank high enough,’” she said. “I don’t know how we can say yes to this budget.” Murray maintained that the city’s contribution has remained mostly stagnant in recent years and was not aff ected by the COVID-19 pandemic. “Before COVID even happened we weren’t budgeting enough,” she said.

Living costs, infrastructure, accessibility to Boston, and a welcoming community were contributing factors that helped determine the top spots. “I am beyond proud that the M City of Everett was named the Top Spot to Live North of Boston for the second year in a row,” said DeMaria. “Everett truly is a great place to live and a great place to work. This isn’t a coincidence that the City is receiving this recognition for the second consecutive year.” Through a breakdown, The Boston Globe illustrated how the median cost for a single-family home in Everett is $497,500, which is one of the most aff ordable rates in the area, and Everett has one of the lowest tax rates in the Metro Boston region. Boston is just a short commute, which is something that is attractive to people. Everett also has Encore Boston Harbor and newly renovated parks and has made vast infrastructure improvements that draw interest to the community. “People are fi nding that living in the City of Everett is a strategic economic decision,” said DeMaria. “It not only provides residents a convenient commute into the City of Boston, but the cost to live here is aff ordable with the median single-family home costing under $500,000.” Mayor Carlo DeMaria with his wife Stacy and dog Hugo (Photo Courtesy of the City of Everett) Tirso Peña of Peña Realty mentioned how the housing boom in Everett was actually anticipated. He expressed how wonderful the city has been for his business, and he was not surprised that about the recognition. “It has always been a pleasure to be working in Everett,” said Peña. “The housing boom is unsurprising, given its proximity to Boston, the investments made to improve the sidewalks and streets, and the Encore Boston Harbor casino. I have tenants who live in my building that work at the casino, and they want to live close to where they work. People want to be in Everett.” In the article, former Boston resident Blessing Chitanda mentioned that she and her partner, Shawn Roberts, decided to buy a home in Everett because of the closeness to Boston and the lower rates. They also decided to move their business to Everett, and they feel embraced by the community. “We have a strong sense of community in the City of Everett,” said DeMaria. “Whether someone has lived here their whole life or just moved in a few weeks ago, the City of Everett is a warm and welcoming community. There is no divide within, we are one. I look forward to welcoming new residents in our community and allowing them to experience why our City is truly a Top Spot to live.

THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, APRIL 30, 2021 Page 3 City mourns loss of Kristin Fulton By Christopher Roberson K ristin Fulton, 38, tragically passed away on April 23, just six days after the birth of her daughter Lenna. Fulton had dedicated a number of years to working for Everett’s Recreation Department as well as the Health and Wellness Center. She was also a cheerleading coach for the Everett Huskies Athletic Association. “Kristin touched the lives of so many people. She was an inspiring coach, friend, wife, daughter and mother to Lenna. She was most definitely one of a kind. Anyone who was lucky enough to know Kristin will tell you this,” said Alyssa Bellante, organizer of the Fulton Fund. “Her dedication, love, kindness and free spirit will live on forever. Kristin’s legacy will live on forever.” As of April 28, the Fulton Fund had received $62,065. City Council President Pro Tempore Anthony DiPierro knew Fulton as an “incredible person and a tenacious fi ghter.” “Despite her health struggles, she always smiled and prayed for those that were in need. She wasn’t just a supabout her new home, becoming a mother and starting the next chapter of her life with her family. This beautiful soul was taken from us much too soon.” Ward 2 Councillor Stephanie City employee Kristin Fulton tragically passed away on April 23 at the age of 38.

She impressed me by her desire to help others whenever she could,” he said. “Kristin loved all things Disney and inspired everyone she encountered. Kristin was so excited DiDomenico calls for action on wage theft O n April 15, State Senator Sal DiDomenico joined with the United Brotherhood of Carpenters and labor leaders from across the Greater Boston area to take part in Boston Tax Fraud Day of Action. Together, they called for urgent action on legislation to crack down on the rampant epidemic of wage theft here in Massachusetts. DiDomenico is the lead sponsor of S.1179, An Act to prevent wage theft, promote employer accountability, and enhance public enforcement, which would give the state greater power to go after corrupt employers and provide additional tools for the Attorney General’s Offi ce to hold violators fully accountable. “Each year that goes by without action on this bill means that more and more workers – many of whom are immigrants – fall victim to wage theft, and thousands of dollars are stolen from our economy,” said DiDomenico during the April 15 rally. “Wage theft takes many different forms, but they all have the common denominator of hurting hardworking men and Got Plans?

THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, APRIL 30, 2021 Page 5 City Council to consider adoption of Transportation Demand Management By Christopher Roberson T he City Council recently heard a proposal from Transportation Planner Jay Monty regarding the addition of Transportation Demand Management (TDM), which is designed to assuage traffi c snarls caused by housing and commercial developments. Monty said the proposal stems from the Everett Design Guidelines, which concluded that “a development should make meaningful contributions to the city’s character and mobility.” Monty also said changes are needed to accommodate the various types of developments. “Something on Revere Beach Parkway is different than something on Broadway,” he said during the council’s April 26 meeting. “We need to refl ect that in the zoning.” Monty said the primary objective of TDM is to reduce “drive-alone commuting.” “We have a commute rate by car of 70 percent,” he said. Therefore, TDM would bolster the use of carpooling, shuttles and rideshare. In addition, Monty said developments with limited access, such as the Gateway Center, would be aff ected by TDM and would need to provide additional access points. He also said residential developments with more than 10 units would be aff ected as well as commercial developments with more than 10,000 gross square feet. Monty said TDM would affect those commercial developments that have too many parking spaces, as it invites additional traffi c volume. He said parking spaces are also included in a tenant’s rent. Therefore, he said, tenants could very well end up paying for unused parking spaces. Monty said that under the current Zoning Ordinance there is no clear indication about when to add new bike lanes, traffic lights or traffic lanes. However, that would be rectified should TDM be adopted. In addition, Monty said another component of TDM would be to establish a Transportation Management Association. He said the purpose of the association would be to enforce commitments that developers have made to the city. Residential Parking Program In other news, Monty updated the council on the proposed amendments to the Residential Parking Program. One change would be to no longer require residents to have parking stickers. “We have a program that is hugely oversubscribed,” he said. However, Monty said this would not apply to residents living in existing multifamily or single-family homes. Monty also said the cost of constructing an off -street parking space is approximately $50,000 and the market rate to rent one of those spaces is between $1,000 and $2,000. Although a motion was made to refer the matter back to the council’s Committee of the Whole, Ward 5 Councillor Rosa DiFlorio said her colleagues should have been ready to vote. “This has been in front of us for two weeks,” she said. “I know we all work, but at some time, we need to make time to look at this stuff.” The council ultimately voted 6-3 to send the matter back to the Committee of the Whole. Two Everett residents arrested in connection with Canton shooting By Christopher Roberson S haquille Lee, 28, and Jessica Araujo, 30, both of Everett, were arrested on April 23 for their alleged involvement in a shooting earlier this year in Canton. In the early evening of February 21, a motorist travelling on Route 138 captured a 22-second video of the incident in which two cars are travelling bumper to bumper. Seconds later, the car in back strikes the vehicle in front, sending it careening into a snowbank. The video then shows an individual, believed to be Lee, exiting the vehicle that was struck and fi ring four shots at the other car while running across Route 138. Miraculously, no one was injured. However, Canton Police Chief Kenneth Berkowitz said this was more than just road rage and that innocent civilians could have been caught in the crossfi re. “We don’t believe it was road rage,” he said in an interview with WCVB. “The parties knew each other and it was intended. But it’s equally as brazen and disturbing. Yeah, they might have known each other and had a feud or whatever, and everyone else around RESIDENTS | SEE PAGE 12 them doesn’t matter.” While executing a search warrant, police allegedly

First off , it was the only time in the Tide's storied history that the football season is being held in the spring. That's due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which caused a shift of the traditional Fall Season from fall 2020 to the spring of 2021. Another big fi rst was the debut of fi rst-year Everett head coach Rob DiLoreto, who was appointed in November to lead the Tide football fortunes. DiLoreto is only the fi fth Everett head coach since the 1950s, covering nearly 70 seasons. With all the "new" items on the agenda what was all too familiar Friday was a big Everett win, 42-12, fueled by a potent running game and a solid defense. It was also the opener for the newly-formed Greater Boston League, with Lynn English coming over from the Northeastern Conference (NEC). Lynn English scored first when QB Jessie Maggs ran for a 9-yard touchdown in the fi rst quarter. The visitors exploded on their sideline and led after the fi rst quarter, 6-0. But after the fi rst quarter, it was all Everett, all night. The Tide would go on to score 36 straight points, leading 20-6 at halftime and then tacking on two more scores in the third quarter. Jayden Clerveaux led the way for Everett with close to 100 yards rushing and scoring three touchdowns, fi nishing of three time-eating drives for Everett, two in the second quarter and a third in the third quarter. Junior Ishmael Zamor also scored a touchdown for Everett, on a 14-yard touchdown run on a pitch that helped build the Tide lead in the secsetts Legislature. He is now Chairman of the Operations, Facilities and Security Committee, and Everett residents should be proud of his accomplishment. All state legislators aspire a chairmanship position as they further their careers in the “House”, and Representative McGonagle has reached this plateau. The next time you see Representative McGonagle, address him as Mr. Chairman and watch the proud smile come across his face. Along with Senate Assistant Majority Leader, Senator Sal DiDomenico, whose accomplishments are too many to list, the City of Everett’s interests are well represented at the Massachusetts State House.

The Tide defense was especially strong after the fi rst quarter, basically shutting down the Lynn English attack until the visitors scored against the Everett reserves in the fi nal minutes. It was led by Josiah Stewart who had seven tackles and three sacks on the game.

There are many ways you can listen to the show from anywhere in the world: If you have a smart speaker, simply say, “Play WMEX on Audacy.com ” Download the free www.Audacy.com app on your phone or tablet Listen online at www.wmexboston.com Or tune into 1510 AM if you have an AM radio THE HOUSE AND SENATE: In keeping with tradition, there were no formal sessions of the House and Senate last week which was April vacation week for Bay State students. This week, Beacon Hill Roll Call reports on proposed amendments filed by representatives and senators to amend the state constitution. Any proposed constitutional amendment sponsored by legislators needs the votes of a majority of the 200-member Legislature in the 2021-2022 session and the same in the 2023-2024 session in order to appear on the November 2024 ballot for voters to decide. None of these proposals have yet been approved, but hearings have already been held on most of them. LIMIT JUDICIAL APPOINTMENTS TO SEVEN YEARS (H 81) – Limits judicial appointments to seven years but allows judges to be re-appointed by the governor for an unlimited number of years every seven years. The appointment would have to be approved by the Governor’s Council as required under current law. “The people of Massachusetts should have the power to remove government offi cials in any position who are not doing or are unable to do their jobs,” said the measure’s sponsor Rep. Tom Golden (D-Lowell.) “Establishing term and tenure limits would help to ensure that judges do not stay in offi ce beyond the point at which they are eff ective.” PROHIBIT EMINENT DOMAIN TAKINGS OF LAND (H 82) – Prohibits the state from taking land by eminent domain from property owners for private commercial or economic development. “The right to own property is a widely recognized principle in the commonwealth, and one I believe should be fi rmly protected,” said GOP House Minority Leader Brad Jones (R-North Reading), the sponsor of the amendment. “[The bill] will ensure that eminent domain proceedings are limited to those instances where it is necessary for the good of the entire community, and not for the economic benefi t of a limited class of persons. This bill strikes a balance between two competing but legitimate realities—the need of the government to acquire land to serve the public good and the rights of private citizens to own property.” PROHIBIT CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENTS FROM RESTRICTING FREEDOM AND EQUALITY (S 20) – Prohibits the proposal of any future constitutional amendment that would restrict the rights to freedom and equality that are in the constitution, or the right of each individual to be protected by society’s laws in the enjoyment of life, liberty and property. “Under the current constitutional scheme there is nothing to stop a group from attempting to repeal or abridge certain constitutional rights through the initiative process,” said amendment sponsor Sen. Cindy Creem (D-Newton). “Subjecting such important rights to a popular vote or a fl eeting change in political winds is unconscionable and should not be allowed.” EQUALITY UNDER THE LAW (S 21 and H 83) – Expands a part of the constitution that currently provides that equality under the law shall not be denied or abridged because of sex, race, color, creed or national origin. The measure adds “sexual orientation” and “gender identity” to the section. Sen. Patrick O’Connor (R-WeyBHRC | SEE PAGE 14

I can also help with mediation, nonviolent communication and crisis de-escalation.” Peterson said homelessness and addiction have escalated in Everett since the program began three years ago. “These issues can be overwhelming at times as there are very limited options for housing to break the cycle of homelessness,” she said. Peterson said the program is now expanding so that residents can reach out to her directly at 617-389-2120 or via email at tpeterson@eliotchs.org. She is also available on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. BHRC | FROM PAGE 13 mouth) and Rep. Patrick Kearney (D-Scituate) each fi led the proposal at the request of one of their constituents Sabrina Holland. “This legislation … is deserving of a favorable report by the committee and has my full support,” said Sen. O’Connor who supports the bill. “This language is needed to offi cially prohibit discrimination on the basis of sexual preference or gender identity, to perpetuate Massachusetts’ values and to create a truly equitable and safe society for all.” Neither Rep. Kearney nor Sabrina Holland responded to repeated requests by Beacon Hill Roll Call to comment on the proposal. And Kearney did not respond to a specifi c question as to whether he supports the bill. Sometimes a legislator will fi le a bill as a courtesy to a constituent even if the legislator doesn’t support it. GIVE GOVERNOR THE POWER TO APPOINT LIEUTENANT GOVERNOR (H 84) – Grants the governor the power to appoint a lieutenant governor if the offi ce is vacant because of the death, resignation, removal from offi ce or incapacity of the lieutenant governor. The appointment would have to be confi rmed by a majority vote of the House and Senate. Current law leaves the seat vacant until the next election. The measure’s sponsor, Rep. Paul Mark (D-Peru) did not respond to repeated requests by Beacon Hill Roll Call to comment on the proposal. MAKE CONSTITUTION GENDER NEUTRAL (H 79) – Makes the state constitution general neutral by striking all references to “he” and replacBHRC | SEE PAGE 20

THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, APRIL 30, 2021 Page 15 DIDOMENICO | FROM PAGE 3 prevalent of these practices is payroll fraud via misclassifying employees as independent contractors or paying workers “off -the-books” in cash-only arrangements. As a result, some employers avoid paying taxes and into critical safety nets for workers – like unemployment insurance, workers’ compensation, Social Security and Medicare benefi ts –putting an unfair burden on Massachusetts taxpayers and the Commonwealth when employees have a legitimate right to use these programs. Wage theft also hurts legitimate businesses by putting law-abiding companies at a competitive disadvantage when they lose contracts to companies that charge less for their work by cheating their workers out of their pay. To increase accountability in labor contracting and subcontracting, the bill holds lead contractors accountable for the wage theft violations of their subcontractors if there is a signifi cant connection to their business activities or operations, and the bill enhances the enforcement power of the Attorney General’s Offi ce by allowing it to bring wage theft cases directly to civil court. The Attorney General would also gain the ability to issue a stop work order in response to a wage theft violation. To protect employees affected by a stop work order, the bill requires that employees be paid for the period that the stop work order is in eff ect or the fi rst 10 days the employee was scheduled to work had the stop order not been issued. The Massachusetts Senate has twice passed DiDomenico’s wage theft bill during previous legislative sessions with nearly unanimous and bipartisan support. On March 29, 2021, the Legislature referred S.1179 to its Joint Committee on Labor and Workforce Development, where it awaits a report.

THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, APRIL 30, 2021 Page 17 BY JIM MILLER Should You Prepay Your Funeral? Dear Savvy Senior, My wife and I have been thinking about preplanning our funerals now so our kids won’t have to later, but we would like to fi nd out if it’s a good idea to prepay. What can you tell us? Living on a Budget Dear Living, Planning your funerals in advance is defi nitely a smart move. Not only does it give you and your wife time to make a thoughtful decision on the type of service you want, it also allows you to shop around to fi nd a good funeral provider, and it will spare your family members the burden of making these decisions at an emotional time. But preplanning a funeral doesn’t mean you have to prepay too. In fact, the Funeral Consumer Alliance, a national nonprofi t funeral consumer protection organization, doesn’t recommend it unless you need to spend down your fi nancial resources so you can qualify for Medicaid. Here’s what you should know. Preneed Arrangements Most funeral homes today off er what is known as “preneed plans,” which allow you to prearrange for the type of funeral services you want and prepay with a lump sum or through installments. The funeral home either puts your money in a trust fund with the payout triggered by your death or buys an insurance policy naming itself as the benefi ciary. If you’re interested in this route, make sure you’re being guaranteed the services you specify at the contracted price. Some contracts call for additional payments for fi nal expense funding, which means that if the funeral home’s charges increase between the time you sign up and the time you sign off , somebody will have to pay the diff erence. Here are some additional questions you should ask before committing: Can you cancel the contract and get a full refund if you change your mind? Will your money earn interest? If so, how much? Who gets it? If there is an insurance policy involved, is there a waiting period before it takes effect? How long? Are the prices locked in or will an additional payment be required at the time of death? Are you protected if the funeral home goes out of business or if it’s bought out by another company? What happens if you move? Can the plan be transferred to another funeral home in a diff erent state? If there’s money left over after your funeral, will your heirs get it, or does the home keep it? If you decide to prepay, be sure to get all the details of the agreement in writing and give copies to your family so they know what’s expected. If your family isn’t aware that you’ve made plans, your wishes may not be carried out. And if family members don’t know that you’ve prepaid the funeral costs, they could end up paying for the same arrangements. Other Payment Option While prepaying your funerals may seem like a convenient way to go, from a fi nancial point of view, there are better options available. For example, if you have a life insurance policy, many policies will pay a lump sum when you die to your benefi ciaries to be used for your funeral expenses. The payment is made soon after you die and doesn’t have to go through probate. Or you could set up a payable-on-death (or POD) account at your bank or credit union, naming the person you want to handle your arrangements as the benefi ciary. POD accounts also are called Totten Trusts. With this type of account, you maintain control of your money, so you can tap the funds in an emergency, collect the interest and change the benefi ciary. When you die, your beneficiary collects the balance without the delay of probate. Send your senior questions to: Savvy Senior, P.O. Box 5443, Norman, OK 73070, or visit SavvySenior.org.

Page 18 THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, APRIL 30, 2021 OBITUARIES Alan DeAngelis Lucy Armorel Butt Of Everett formerly of Revere, passed away surrounded by his loving family on April 20th at the age of 66. Beloved husband of Bernadette (Lupis) DeAngelis. Loving son of the late Edward and Helen (Johnson) DeAngelis. Devoted father of Jennifer Weaver and her husband JR of Plainville, Nicholas DeAngelis and his wife Kristin of Woburn and Melissa Booth and her husband Roy of Chelsea. Adored grandfather of Alexis, Frankie, Marcella and Bella. Alan was a former employee of Amtrak dedicatedly serving the company for over 33 years. In lieu of fl owers, memorial donations may be made in Alan’s name to Care Dimensions, 75 Sylvan Street, Danvers, MA 01923. Age 103, of Everett passed away on April 23, 2021. She was born on March 4, 1918 in Ochre Pit Cove, Newfoundland. She was the daughter of William Harris Jacobs (a tough, brave, hard-working man who knew where the codfi sh were and wasn’t afraid to go get them) and Laura Martin Jacobs (a nurturing, loving mother and equally hard-working partner). They had ten children, six of whom survived childhood. Armorel is pre-deceased by all of her beloved siblings who were close-knit and supportive of each other. Armorel came to this country as a young woman and found true love with Eben Davis Butt, a wonderful, wise, and tender man. Eben was also a Newfoundlander, and together they shared wonderment of and love for their new country. They had two children. Eben’s bad health robbed them of the life they had planned together and his early passing left Armorel with a young family to raise and provide for. She did heroic things for her children, providing not only the material things needed but also love, values, structure, faith, and a role model from which they profited. Armorel epitomized the old seafarer’s proverb: “When there is no wind, row.” By example, she taught her kids how to row. Later in life Armorel was again blessed with fi nding love with her second husband, Jabez Butt, a loving generous man who was a friend to all. Their marriage brought them happiness until his passing. Armorel leaves two children: Cheryl Webb of St Louis, MO and Bradford Eben Butt of Glastonbury, CT. She also leaves three grandchildren whom she dearly loved and adored (and they her): Bradford Webb and his wife Anne of St. Louis, MO, Haley Rist and her husband Andrew of Ipswich, MA, and Lauren Redfi eld of Glastonbury, CT. She also leaves six sparkling great grandchildren who amazed her, whom she also loved dearly, and whose lives sustained her as age and infi rmities encroached on her life: William, Jack, and Tommy Webb, Lila Redfi eld, and John and Emily Rist. She was also further blessed with many faithful friends whom she valued throughout all of her long life. Well done, Ma! We all love you. In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation in her name to UNICEF USA, 125 Maiden Lane, New York, NY 10038 or on-line at www.unicefusa.org, to honor Armorel’s life-long love of children.

Mindy Domb (D-Amherst) did not respond to repeated requests by Beacon Hill Roll Call to comment on the proposal. “AFFIRM” RATHER THAN “SOLEMNLY SWEAR” (H 80) – Amends a current section of the constitution that gives Quakers the option to change the oath a person must take upon taking offi ce from the current: “I do solemnly swear, that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the commonwealth of Massachusetts and will support the constitution thereof. So help me God.” Currently Quakers are allowed to change the word “swear” to “affi rm” and the words “So help me God” with “under the pains and penalties of perjury.” The amendment would give that same option to anyone, not just Quakers. The measure’s sponsor, Rep. Mindy Domb (D-Amherst) did not respond to repeated requests by Beacon Hill Roll Call to comment on the proposal. CHANGE “SELECTMAN” TO “SELECT BOARD” (SD 2564) – Changes all references to the constitution to a town’s “selectman” to “select board.” “This bill would recognize that both men and women can lead in local government by updating antiquated references to “selectmen” in the constitution,” said sponsor Sen. Will Brownsberger (D-Belmont). The modern terminology, adopted by many towns, is “select board.” 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 19-23, the House met for a total of eleven minutes while the Senate met for a total of eight minutes. Mon. April 19 No House session. No Senate session Tues.

The grant is estimated to be $20 million and can be used over a three-year period. “We all were very vocal in the fi ght to get equitable funding,” she said. “Our students deserve every investment and every opportunity.” Senior Class President Laurie Pierre said additional funding is needed for the Guidance Department at Everett High School. “I always knew where I wanted to go to college, but not everyone does,” she said. Because of the pandemic, Pierre said, many of her classmates who planned on going to college in the fall have decided to take a year off . “The dreams that they had crumbled,” she said. Dennis Lynch, principal of the Parlin School, spoke about his request for a second assistant principal. Lynch said he currently has 940 students and expects that number to increase once again in the fall. He also said 86 percent of his students have high needs, 80 percent speak English as a second language and 70 percent are economically disadvantaged. Lynch also cited other schools in the area that have two assistant principals and smaller student populations. Those schools include Browne Middle School in Chelsea, the Ferryway School in Malden and Clark Avenue Middle School in Chelsea. “A school the size of the Parlin is the exception, not the rule, in terms of school leadership,” said Lynch.
