An eff ort to foster literacy and equity in the Everett School Department is developing on several fronts. On Monday, School Committee members were updated on the status of the GLEAM grant, or Growing Literacy Equity Across Massachusetts.

The plan, according to McDonough, is to be implemented sometime this summer. The eff ort will include the adoption of “high-quality core curricular materials in grades 6-8 and professional development and support for teachers, principals and literacy coaches.” The GLEAM team includes representatives from Keverian, Madeline English, Lafayette, Parlin, Whittier and Devens, as well as members in the Central Offi ce. The eff ort has included developing a vision, goals and priorities, narrowing material options and a pilot/fi eld test. The “launch phase” has GLEAM members developing and sharing the implementation plan and introducing a plan for supports and grading and assessments. Dyna Louis, the student representative to the School Committee, praised the eff ort to gather data for the GLEAM grant. “I really like the way you got feedback from the families,” said Louis. The eff ort’s “Learn and Prepare Phase” has: • Created a Literacy Vision • Defi ned Parameters and Priori� es • Solicited feedback from educators and families • Created a body of knowledge for the GLEAM grant The “Investigate and Select” portion of the eff ort has team members collecting evidence of priorities from the curricular materials, gathering information on the agreed upon priorities by testing the curricular materials in a classroom setting and collecting evidence of the agreed upon priorities by asking “targeted questions.” The plan has evolved from seven diff erent options in December to be narrowed to the top two choices in an educator survey. Implementation of the plan will include fi nal priorities, capacity building and professional learning, feedback and continuous improvement and systems and structures for learning. According to the GLEAM grant’s report, one member emphasized data in the project needs to be multicultural: “The district’s priorities for a literacy curriculum must be shared and I think that going forward, parents should be given information in their home languages that explains how to access the online portions of the curriculum.” For one student cited in the survey, the eff ort has its ups and downs. “It was easy to load online,” the student writes. “The lessons are very interesting, but there are a ton of assignments.” Revere and Everett host virtual discussion Pictured in a screenshot from the event are Representative Danielle Gregoire (top right), Samaga Pokharel (bottom right) and Hana Menkari (top left) along with other participants. R ecently, young people from Teens in Everett Against Substance Abuse (TEASA) – a program of Cambridge Health Alliance – and Revere’s Youth Health Leadership Council (YHLC), high schoolers who work with Revere’s Healthy Community Initiatives Office and the MGH Revere CARES Coalition, attended Kick Butts Day: Youth Day of Action, a virtual event hosted by The 84 movement. The 84 is a statewide movement of youths fighting against the tobacco and vaping industries in Massachusetts. During the event, young people participated in a workshop to prepare for meeting with their legislators. As part of the workshop, Everett High School senior Samaga Pokharel and Revere High School junior Hana Menkari participated in a panel discussion with Representative Danielle Gregoire (4th Middlesex District), introducing the teens to what legislators do, learning tips to guide their meetings with legislators and questioning Representative Gregoire about her experience.

Ralph is so deserving of this recognition.” Throughout the pandemic and under the leadership of Sacramone, the ABCC has worked closely with the MPSA, the Massachusetts Municipal Lawyers Association, the Massachusetts Restaurant Association, the Massachusetts Wholesalers Association and other industry trade organizations to support licensees. “People comment all the time on how there is a disconnect or more accurately an adversarial relationship between regulatory agencies and the businesses they regulate. Mr. Sacramone’s approach throws that misguided concept right out the window,” said MPSA President Ryan Maloney. “Over the last two years during an unprecedented pandemic and a constantly shifting business landscape, Mr. Sacramone’s guidance created a bridge of stability to ensure the laws of the Commonwealth were followed while allowing business to fl ourish. Always accessible and quick with a helping hand, Mr. Sacramone showed true regulatory leadership. He is well befi tting for the award bestowed on him by the Massachusetts Package Store Association.” More so than ever before, the ABCC played an integral role as part of the Commonwealth’s COVID-19 Enforcement and Intervention Team to ensure the economic vitality and public safety of every community throughout the state. “The Commissioners and I truly appreciate Ralph’s dedication and eff orts every day, but never more so than during the pandemic,” said ABCC Chair Jean Lorizio, Esq. “Ralph’s acting as liaison with industry members and the Governor’s COVID team made it possible for the Commission to help licensees when it mattered most. Ralph is an invaluable member of the ABCC team, and we are very proud to work alongside him.” About the Alcoholic Beverages Control Commission The ABCC is an agency under the Massachusetts State Treasury. Their overall objective is to provide uniform control over the sale, transportation, possession, purchasing and manufacturing of alcoholic beverages in the Commonwealth.

An increasing number of folks are starting to see mental health for what it is: one important component of your overall health and well-being, just like your physical health. However, having a conversation about mental health conditions, and reaching out for resources and supports can still feel complicated and out of reach. Are there common warning signs for mental health conditions or crises? Are there specific factors that can lead to changes in mood or behaviors that may negatively aff ect someone’s well-being? What resources are out there – and how do I know if they are right for me? The Mystic Valley Elder Services (MVES) Mental Health Outreach Program is here to help. This new grant-funded initiative is available to Spanish-speaking residents of Malden, Everett, Chelsea and Revere who are 60 years of age or older. Spanish-speaking older adults are often confronted with unique barriers to receiving assistance, but this new program is here to help. The Mental Health Outreach Program offers person-centered, strengthbased mental health assistance from bilingual staff who will help support Spanish-speaking older adults to maintain independence and dignity. MVES bilingual Mental Health Outreach Worker Ignacia Urquijo can assess, refer and provide timely assistance to older adults in need or distress, evaluate Spanish-speaking older adults’ needs for support in the community, help older adults seek and navigate behavioral health care services and treat4th T Ignacia Urquijo Spanish-speaking Mental Health Outreach Worker ment, work with health care partners to identify and refer older adults who might be at risk, and connect older adults to additional programs and services that might benefi t them. If you are concerned about your mental health, or someone you love, there are options available. You are not alone – speaking with someone can make a diff erence.

Here are some questions to consider if you think you, or a friend/loved one, might benefit from speaking with our new Spanish-Speaking Mental Health Outreach Worker: Have things that used to feel easy started feeling diffi cult? Does the idea of doing daily tasks like making your bed now feel really, really hard? Have you lost interest in activities and hobbies you used to enjoy? Do you feel irritated – possibly to the point of lashing out at people you care about? Are you feeling increased sadness or worry lately? Have you been nervous or experiencing more stress these days?

Competitive prices on all Brands, Great Selection generation understood war. At home they experienced rationing, schoolchildren collected scrap, and women took up factory jobs while overseas the troops endured combat and were witness to some of the largest and most brutal atrocities in the modern age. When the war was over, they followed the lead of Lt. Gen Truscott and committed their lives to ensure that they “have not died in vain.” The shared sacrifice of a generation united them and helped them solve tough problems. In subsequent wars, such as the Korean and Vietnam era, Veterans did not experience the same level of understanding and thus either turned their voice inward or used their voice to fight for one another on subjects that varied from Agent Orange, PTSD, and other once-silent conditions. The War on Terror introduced a unique time in our nation’s collective history as acts of war played out in real-time on our media devices. Although only one percent of Americans served post 9/11, it seems 100 percent of the country used their voice to express their opinions of this shared history as it unfolded. For Korea and Vietnam Veterans, war was not a shared experience and therefore various voices having various opinions helped further the national conversation regarding the treatment of veterans leading to safer and more thoughtful approaches.

This new era of media, learning, and personal discussions bring rise to the question, “Do people really remember why we hold our veterans in a place of honor?” For years, voices saying meaningless phrases like “the enemy gets a vote” or “there’s nothing you could have done” were meant to comfort those of us who have held the heavy responsibility of leading troops in combat. However, many people seem to lack the understanding that our hearts have been forever scarred by the invisible wounds of war, scarred by guilt and grief, and by the longing for forgiveness that will never come. Even if forgiveness was offered, it would be hard to accept as no mere words can undo a life experience and because of this, we often feel isolated, misunderstood, and undervalued therefore our voices remain silent. As conversations with the voice on the other end of the phone come to its inevitable conclusion, I am reminded that to remain silent is a betrayal of my obligation to those who made the ultimate sacrifice. As Horace Bushnell once said, the best thing for us to do is to remember “what they have put it on us to do for the dear common country to which they sold their life.” As we gather as one nation this OP-ED | SEE PAGE 8

Page 8 THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – FRiDAy, MAy 20, 2022 Now is the Time for Broad Tax Relief Aimed at the Middle Class Record Gas and Diesel Fuel Prices Continue to Plague Massachusetts for a Second Week in a Row, MA Breaks Record for Highest Prices Ever Recorded B OSTON – According to data from AAA Northeast, for the second week in a row, gasoline and diesel prices continue to break state records on a daily basis. Every day of last week, prices broke state records established the previous day. Prices are continuing that costly trend this week, with today’s fuel prices breaking Friday’s state record. Today, a gallon of gasoline costs $4.602 and diesel $6.377. Last week’s gasoline was approximately 5% cheaper, a month ago it was 13% less expensive, and this time last year gasoline was $2.91 a gallon, which represents a 58% increase in price since then. Despite these high fuel prices, Speaker Ron Mariano and Senate President Karen Spilka have refused to consider suspending the state gas tax as other Northeastern states have already done, OP-ED | FROM PAGE 6 LIKE US ON FACEBOOK ADVOCATE NEWSPAPER FACEBOOK.COM/ADVOCATE.NEWS.MA Memorial Day, my hope is that instead of directing shallow words of gratitude at each other, we do as Lt. Gen. Truscott did and direct our gratitude directly towards those who made the ultimate sacrifice. In both our words and actions, let us all commit ourselves to serve the country to which they gave their lives. While there is still much work to be done, the generaor are on the verge of doing. The Massachusetts Department of Revenue reported the state collected $6.9 billion from state taxpayers, a jump of 79% from last April. With record fuel prices, an 8.5% rate of inflation, and Massachusetts collecting nearly 80% more in taxes last month over a year ago, now is the time for our State House leaders to immediately adopt broad tax relief aimed at middle class taxpayers. “Massachusetts taxpayers are in desperate need to have more money in their paychecks. A good way to do that is through broad based tax relief aimed at the middle class. Suspending the state gas tax is a start, and reducing the state income tax by 10% would go a long way to help taxpayers keep up with the rate of inflation which stands at 8.5%. Reduction of Veterans from this century have access to vast resources, life-saving technology, and increased information. This same generation of Veterans is just now starting to define our post-service legacy and like our grandparents, return home with a deep commitment to service, and a desire to address the many problems that we face. One such issue needing to be addressed is helping Veterans find purpose in their post-service lives. Truscott’s apology to the dead are not empty words, but a strong voice reminding us that we have an obligation to choose resilience and purpose when faced with guilt or grief. As an example, Gold Star Families, who have experienced tremendous loss, continue to serve their communities to maintain the legacy of the loved one they lost. I often recall a colleague of mine responding to the question “why do you do so much to help Veterans?” he simply held up his finger, choking back tears he responded, “for the one I couldn’t save.” By choosing to use his voice to advocate for other veterans, he not only helped them find their purpose – he found his own. It’s often said that for those who have served “every day is ing the state income tax rate from 5% to 4.5% would represent a 10% reduction, and be meaningful for hard-working middle-class Massachusetts taxpayers,” stated Paul Diego Craney, spokesman for the Massachusetts Fiscal Alliance. “The only thing worse than inaction by our Speaker and Senate President is the passage of the legislature’s graduated income surtax amendment, which would increase the income tax by 80% on some taxpayers and businesses. Even for taxpayers who do not fall into the legislature’s 80% tax hike, it will have an indirect impact on the middle class. Businesses will be forced to leave and the high tax costs will be passed down. As painful as it is today for the middle class, it can get a lot worse if the legislature’s 80% tax hike is passed this November,” concluded Craney. Memorial Day,” a traditionally silent observance in the Veteran’s mind that can best be described as an impossible trinity made up of an overwhelming sense of guilt, grief, and grit. Usually, a moment of silence on this day is a welcomed and solemn way to honor the voices from our past, but for myself, after losing three former soldiers to suicide in the past few months, silence is no longer an option and the freedom to use our voice is the greatest gift that our veterans have to offer this Memorial Day.

Everett residents, members of the Everett Police and Fire Departments, City workers and community leaders all took as many flags as they could and dispersed throughout the cemetery. They ensured every veteran grave received a U.S. flag to give them much-deserved honor and recognition for their service. Many of those who participated had a family member or loved one who served in our armed forces who has now passed and rests in these cemeteries, which made placing the flags much more special for them. Mayor Carlo DeMaria and the City of Everett would like to thank everyone who volunteered to place flags at these cemeteries.

Page 14 THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – FRiDAy, MAy 20, 2022 Baker-Polito Administration Files $1.7 Billion Fiscal Year 2022 Supplemental Budget S ALEM – The Baker-Polito Administration this week will file a Fiscal Year 2022 (FY22) supplemental budget that proposes investments in transportation, housing, environmental infrastructure, economic development, child care and education initiatives. The legislation includes approximately $1.7 billion in spending, supported by state tax revenues that exceed FY22 benchmarks through April by $4.23 billion (14%). The current surplus also prompted the Administration to formally upgrade the FY22 tax benchmarks today, increasing the total fiscal year projection to $37.666 billion. Governor Charlie Baker made PROTECT your PET! RABIES CLINIC The City of Malden and Malden Police Dept. are pleased to announce the return of the Annual Rabies Clinic This year’s clinic will be held: On SATURDAY, JUNE 18th from 10 a.m.-12 noon @ the Malden Central Fire Station, 1 Sprague St., Malden, MA 02148 *The cost is Only $15.00 per shot *ALL DOGS MUST BE LEASHED *ALL CATS MUST BE IN CARRIER *PLEASE COMPLY with all SOCIAL DISTANCING REGULATIONS This Clinic is organized by the City of Malden and the Malden Police Department. For further information contact Malden Police Animal Control at 781-397-7171 x1302 Malden Police Department 800 Eastern Ave. Malden, MA 02148 Please protect your Pet by getting them Vaccinated! ————— This Rabies Clinics is open to All Malden residents AND Non-Residents are welcome to bring their pets, also this announcement today in Salem at the site of what will be Massachusetts’ second offshore wind port. The supplemental budget would direct $100 million to ports in Salem, New Bedford and Somerset. These funds will support infrastructure to ensure Massachusetts becomes a global leader and a hub in the offshore wind industry. “Unprecedented Fiscal Year 2022 revenues afford us this opportunity to make targeted investments in some of the Commonwealth’s most pressing areas of need,” said Governor Charlie Baker. “With rising prices due to inflation, ongoing supply chain issues, and other pandemic-related delays impacting both the time and cost it takes to complete projects, it is critically important that we act quickly to ensure that we are able to maximize the impact of these surplus tax dollars for the citizens of Massachusetts and expedite our response to critical needs.” “This spending plan proposes initiatives that will benefit residents and communities across the state, with a focus on expanding opportunities for disadvantaged populations,” said Lieutenant Governor Karyn Polito. “The bill would increase the availability and quality of housing, build business opportunities in underserved communities, support transportation and environmental projects, and strengthen education and child care systems.” The legislation includes funding to support a variety of transportation and environmental infrastructure projects, including $235 million for transportation projects, $200 million for Cape Cod water and sewer initiatives, and $100 million for ports in Salem, New Bedford, and Somerset. It also builds in funds necessary for the implementation of more than $9.5 billion provided through the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL) over the next five years, as well as funding that will allow Massachusetts to access additional federal funding through matching grants. These funds complement investments proposed in the pending MassTRAC infrastructure bond bill and recently announced in the FY2327 Capital Investment Plan. Continuing the Administration’s focus on addressing housing availability and building on the recently filed economic development legislation, An Act Investing in Future Opportunities for Resiliency, Workforce, and Revitalized Downtowns (FORWARD), this bill would provide $310 million for housing development. It proposes $200 million for workforce housing, $100 million for public housing redevelopment in Boston, Cambridge, Salem, and Worcester, and $10 million to increase permanent supportive housing for individuals and families experiencing chronic homelessness. A further $180 million is allocated to targeted economic development initiatives, including $80 million to support efforts to improve small businesses’ options for purchasing commercial real estate, $50 million to provide financial assistance to socially and economically disadvantaged developers, particularly those owned by women and people of color, who are seeking to undertake large housing construction projects and $50 million to de-risk lending to small business owners in underserved markets where access to capital is otherwise limited. “The unprecedented nature of Fiscal Year 2022 revenues will allow the Commonwealth to continue building our stabilization fund balance while making the critical investments proposed in this supplemental budget to fund infrastructure and spur economic development,” said Secretary of Administration and Finance Michael J. Heffernan. “We look forward to working with the Legislature to deliver on the important investments laid out in this responsible and thoughtful bill.” “The Baker-Polito Administration continues to take a forward thinking approach to achieve the Commonwealth’s clean energy and environmental goals,” said Energy and Environmental Affairs Secretary Beth Card. “The filing of this FY22 Supplement Budget will deliver important funds to several ports, which serve critical roles in advancing and supporting the Commonwealth’s offshore wind projects.” A number of other initiatives are supported in the supplemental budget proposal, including: • $150 million for higher education campus physical infrastructure primarily at Mass College of Art and UMass Dartmouth; • $55 million for child care, including $45 million for a new family child care home ownership and improvement program, which seeks to increase child care capacity while establishing financial security for family child care providers, and $10 million for innovative and flexible models of child care delivery; • $55 million for nursing pathways programs; • $30 million for schools and colleges to modernize science and biotechnology labs; and • $28 million for other costs, including $5 million for the USS Constitution park, $10 million for miscellaneous legal settlements and judgments, and $13 million for collective bargaining agreements authorized in an outside section. The legislation also includes several policy proposals, including A re-filed outside section that would update chapter 70, the school finance law, to establish early college and innovation pathways as an enrollment category in the Foundation Budget, to provide sustainable and predictable support for the growth of these pathways, which are demonstrating success in expanding access to college and careers for underrepresented students; A section that would temporarily allow school districts to reserve some of their state chapter 70 funding for future years without facing state financial penalties, thereby helping them to spend time-limited federal funds; A section that would permit youth to voluntarily access a broader range of department of youth services (DYS) supports beyond the current timeframe of 90 days after discharge from a DYS facility; and A section that would continue a department of public health standing order that facilitates insurance coverage for over-the-counter COVID tests and treatments beyond the COVID-19 public health state of emergency.

There were no roll calls in the House or Senate last week. LIFT BAN ON DOCTORS DISPENSING RXs (4700) House 6-149, rejected an amendment that would repeal a current law that prohibits doctors from storing and dispensing some prescription medications directly to a patient. Amendment supporters said Massachusetts is one of only four states that still bans this practice. They argued that the amendment would save patients money by eliminating a layer of middlemen and allowing doctors to offer prescription drugs at wholesale costs. They noted that patients will save a trip to the pharmacy and argued that studies indicate that compliance rates among patients will increase. Rep. Nick Boldyga (R-Southwick), the sponsor of the amendment, did not respond to repeated requests from Beacon Hill Roll Call for a comment. “Direct dispensing would eliminate the vital screening and counseling services performed by pharmacists at local pharmacies,” said amendment opponent Rep. Adrian Madaro (D-East Boston). “Decentralizing the dispensing of drugs to consumers away from pharmacists to thousands of doctor and clinic locations should not occur without more careful consideration by experts. The amendment would have added unnecessary confusion to well-established policies under the current legislation.” (A “Yes” vote is for allowing doctors to store and dispense some prescription medications directly to a patient. A “No” vote is against allowing it). Rep. Joseph McGonagle No DIVERSITY, EQUITY AND INCLUSION (S 2844) Senate 14-26, rejected an amendment to a section of the bill that would legalize sports betting in the Bay State. A section of the bill establishes the application process when applying for a license to operate sports betting. The amendment would require that not less than 25 percent of an applicant’s score in the evaluation of their license shall be accounted for by the applicant’s diversity, equity and inclusion commitments and implementation plan; the applicant’s record of past performance on metrics related to diversity, equity and inclusion; and the applicant’s plan for inclusion of minority business enterprises and women business enterprises in development, financing, ownership, design, construction and operations. Amendment supporters said the amendment is based on a successful licensing model which is currently used by Massport. They noted the model has opened doors to many contractors and business owners of color that previously did not get the same consideration their white counterparts did—all while preserving flexibility and competitiveness in BEACON | SEE PAGE 16 Co-Captain/Setter Caio Santos is pictured with his friend, Jackelyn Abranches.

Page 16 THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – FRiDAy, MAy 20, 2022 Medicare Part B And D Income-Related Adjustments M ost Medicare benefi ciaries pay the standard Part B premium. Medicare benefi ciaries may also pay a premium for Medicare Part D, which covers prescription drugs. The standard premium for Medicare Part B for 2022 is $170.10 per month. The average premium for a standalone Part D prescription drug plan for 2022 is $47.59 per month. Medicare recipients will pay higher Part B and Part D premiums if their income exceeds a certain amount. This is known as the Income-Related Monthly Adjusted Amount (IRMAA). In order to determine your 2022 Medicare Part A and B premiums, the Social Security Administration reviews the income on your 2020 tax return, not your 2021 return. Your 2023 Medicare premiums will be based upon your 2021 tax return. The number they review is called your modifi ed adjusted gross income. The 2022 Medicare Part A standard premium of $170.10 would increase to $238.10 if your 2020 modifi ed adjusted gross income was between $182,000 and $228,000 for a married fi ling joint income tax return. For a single person, the $238.10 premium kicks in for income between $91,000 and $114,000. Starting in 2020, the IRMAA is indexed to the Bureau of Labor Statistics Consumer Price Index for Urban Consumers (CPI-U). The IRMAA income brackets were not previously indexed in this fashion. Over the last several years with sales of appreciated real estate investment property and stocks, many Medicare recipients have been assessed these higher Part A and Part B premiums. It pays to at least consider the impact that a signifi cant capital gain will have on your Medicare premiums. It might make sense to split the sale of appreciated stock over a consecutive two-year period. For example, in December of one year and in January of the next year. Of course, economics and good fi nancial strategies should always be kept in mind when determining when to sell any investment. Many of the capital gains realized on the sale of investment property have been so large in recent years, it is impossible to avoid the Medicare premium adjustment. The good news is that the Medicare premiums will drop in a following year based upon the tax return actually filed two years earlier. For many, the increase in Medicare premiums is a one-year deal. For those retirees with substantial income year after year, the increased premiums they will just have to live with. I suppose if a married couple has a modifi ed adjusted gross income of $182,000, an additional $68 per month in premiums is not too heavy of a price to pay. I fi nd that many Medicare recipients are surprised when they get the notice from Social Security informing them of the increase in premiums. It’s a good thing to keep in mind that higher income levels, regardless of the source, will result in greater Medicare premiums. Joseph D.

My husband and are about to retire and are interested in traveling more but live on a tight budget. Frugal Travelers Dear Frugal, There are literally hundreds of different travel-related discounts available to older travelers that can add up to save you hundreds of dollars on your next trip. To qualify, you’ll need to meet the age requirement, which varies by business. Some discounts may be available as soon as you turn 50, but most don’t kick in until you turn 55, 60, 62 or 65. Here’s a rundown of top travel discounts, along with some extra tips to help you save. Ways to Save The fi rst thing to know is that most businesses don’t advertise them, but many give senior discounts just for the asking, so don’t be shy. You also need to be aware that when it comes to senior travel bargains, the “senior discount,” if available, may not always be the best deal. Hotels, resorts, airlines and cruise lines, for example, offer advanced bookings along with special deals and promotions from time to time that may be a lower rate than what the senior discount is. Before you book, always ask about the lowest possible rate and the best deal available. Another way you can save is to be fl exible when you travel. Last minute travel deals can off er huge savings, as does traveling during off -season or off -peak times, and avoiding holidays. Club memberships can also garner you a wide variety of travel bargains. AARP, for example has dozens of travel discounts available on hotels, rental cars, cruises, vacation packages and more – see AARP.org/benefits-discounts. The American Automobile Association (AAA. com) is another membership club that provides some great travel discounts to members at any age. Types of Discounts Here are of some of the best senior travel discounts available in 2022. Airline: British Airways offers AARP members $65 off economy travel and $200 off business club travel. American, Delta and United passengers 65 and older in certain markets but are extremely limited. And JetBlue offers 5 percent discounts for retired military and veterans that are enrolled in Veterans Advantage. Train: Amtrak provides a 10 percent discount to travelers 65-plus, and a 10 percent discount to passengers over age 60 on cross-border services operated jointly by Amtrak and VIA Rail Canada. Rental Car: Avis and Budget provide AARP members up to 30 percent off at participating locations. Hertz off ers up to 20 off to 50-plus travelers. And Thrifty and Sixt provides 5 percent off to those 50 and older. Hotels: Certain hotel chains off er discounted rates for seniors usually ranging between 10 and 15 percent off but may vary by location. Some popular hotels that off er these discounts include Best Western, Choice Hotels, Hyatt, IHG Hotels, Marriott, Omni Hotels & Resorts, Red Roof and Wyndham Hotels. Res t aurant s : Many restaurant chains off er senior discounts ranging from free drinks, to senior menus, to discounts off your total order, but they may only be available on certain days of the week or at certain locations. Some popular options include Applebee’s, Denny’s, IHOP, Chili’s, Perkins Restaurant & Bakery and McDonalds. Cruises: Royal Caribbean and Carnival Cruise lines off er discount rates to cruisers 55 and over on select cruises. And Grand European Travel off ers AARP members up to $100 savings per person on river cruises. Call before booking to inquire. Entertainment and Attractions: Most museums, zoos, aquariums, movie theaters, public golf courses and even ski slopes provide reduced admission to seniors over 60 or 65. And for those 62 or older, one of the best deals available is the America the Beautiful Senior Pass ($20 for an annual senior pass, or $80 for a lifetime pass) which provides admittance to more than 2,000 national parks and recreation sites.

Amendment opponents said that the bill already requires that the application’s score be based on several things about the applicant in addition to diversity, equity and inclusion. They argued that elevating the diversity requirement to account for 25 percent of an applicant’s score is unfair to the very other important things that help develop the applicant’s score. Sens. Mike Rodrigues (D-Westport) and Eric Lesser (D-Longmeadow), two opponents of the amendment, did not respond to repeated requests by Beacon Hill Roll Call for a comment. (A “Yes” vote is for the amendment. A “No” vote is against it.) Sen. Sal DiDomenico No ALSO UP ON BEACON HILL ADOPT ANIMALS USED IN RESEARCH (S 613) – The Senate approved and sent to the House a bill that would require research labs to take reasonable steps to offer healthy animals up for adoption rather than euthanizing them when the research is done. According to supporters, more than 60,000 dogs and nearly 20,000 cats are used for animal experimentation in the US. “I fi led the bill to give animals used in medical and product testing experiments a life after the lab,” said sponsor Sen. Bruce Tarr (R-Gloucester) who noted that beagles are very docile and because of that they are often used in laboratories. In fact the majority of animal testing facilities rely on dogs—the greatest proportion of which are beagles. Dogs and other animals involved in research in Massachusetts make tremendous sacrifi ces to save our lives and make us healthier. We have a moral imperative to give them the opportunity for life after the lab.” ADOPT-A-SENIOR (S 427) – A proposal that would establish a statewide Adopt-A-Senior volunteer program to assist seniors with snow removal and property or home maintenance services received a favorable report from the Elder Aff airs Committee back on December 20, 2021 but has been languishing in the Senate Ways and Means Committee since that time. Provisions include creation of a registry of volunteers to match and place volunteers with seniors within their community. “The commonwealth’s seniors need support with things that many younger, able people would happily donate their time to provide,” said sponsor Sen. Mike Rush (D-Boston). “Connecting the people who need assistance with those who are willing to provide it is a no-brainer.” “I have always felt that volunteers make a community stronger,” said Rep. Brian Ashe (D-Longmeadow). “There are many older residents who deserve to stay in their home but are no longer able to do all the maintenance that comes along with owning a home. Hiring someone can be diffi cult and too expensive on a fi xed income. The Adopt-A-Senior program will allow seniors of any community access to the assistance they need while promoting community service—a win-win for everyone.” DONATE FOOD (S 954) A proposal that would provide civil liability protections to individuals, restaurants and organizations that make direct food donations to persons in need BEACON | SEE PAGE 17

THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – FRiDAy, MAy 20, 2022 Page 17 BEACON | FROM PAGE 16 received a favorable report from the Judiciary Committee back on February 28, 2021 but has been languishing in the House Ways and Means Committee since that time. The donor would receive a tax credit or deduction. The bill also provides Massachusetts farmers who donate locally produced excess crops to nonprofit food distribution organizations a tax credit for the year of the donation. “This legislation would encourage the donation of food during a time in which the commonwealth continues to struggle with food insecurity as a result of the pandemic,” said sponsor Sen. Jo Comerford (D-Northampton). Our state saw the highest rate of growth in food insecurity in the nation during the pandemic and food donations are needed to serve our most vulnerable residents. This bill will also incentivize farmers to donate food, setting up a pipeline between farms and food donation organizations, strengthening our food system, and off ering farmers the opportunity for a tax credit.” QUOTABLE QUOTES “We have … more support in the Statehouse in both bodies than we’ve ever had before, and I can tell you as someone who works in other states as well, we have the most support in any Legislature that we’ve ever seen across the country. We really feel like now is the time and this is the session to do it.” -- Melissa Stacy, Northeast regional advocacy manager for Compassion and Choices, on the future of the “Right to Die” bill allowing terminally ill patients to request and receive medication to end their lives. “Students across the commonwealth were significantly impacted by the disruption to their learning and their social and emotional well-being caused by COVID-19, and it is imperative that we continue to provide the resources and support they need to thrive. We are LEGAL NOTICE pleased to be able to again provide this funding, and we are grateful to the community and educational partners statewide who will take advantage of these opportunities and greatly benefi t the commonwealth’s children.” ---Gov. Charlie Baker announcing nearly $60 million in state and federal funding is now available to school districts and community organizations to off er summer learning and recreational programs designed to help students grow academically and socially. “No matter what the time of year, we fi nd that young people love and get so inspired taking on the role of U.S. senators and learning—by doing—about the researching, thinking, debating and compromising that go into producing legislation. Over and over again, we hear from our students who come in-person what an exciting and unforgettable experience it was to be right there on what looks and feels exactly like the fl oor of the United States Senate in Washington.” --- Caroline Angel Burke, Vice President of Education, Visitor Experience, and Collections at the Kennedy Institute, on its “Senator for a Day” interactive civic education programs for K-12 students. “Anyone who’s been traveling into EVERETT PLANNING BOARD PUBLIC HEARING NOTICE PUBLIC HEARING ON AN APPLICATION BY RISE TOGETHER PROPERTY LOCATED AT: 52 SCHOOL STREET SITE PLAN REVIEW & INCLUSIONARY ZONING In accordance with the provisions of M.G.L Chapter 40A and with Sections 4, 19, and 32 of the Everett Zoning Ordinance, the Everett Planning Board will conduct a public hearing on Monday, June 6, 2022 at 6:00PM in the Speaker George Keverian Room (Room 37, Everett City Hall) to consider the above-listed application for Site Plan Review and Special Permit for Inclusionary Zoning.
