THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – Friday, May 31, 2019 Page 3 Air Force Lt. Col. McSwain leads Memorial Day Service H By Christopher Roberson aving retired from the U.S. Air Force five years ago, Lt. Col. Matthew McSwain was excited to don his full regalia once again during the city’s Memorial Day service at Glenwood Cemetery. “Today, we remember,” he said during his keynote address on May 27. “When I put my uniform back on, it brought back a flood of memories.” McSwain said he spent much of his 22-year career in Combat Search and Rescue, deploying pararescue jumpers from UH/1N and HH60G helicopters, in a unit known as the “Jolly Green Giants.” “When someone called us, that meant someone wasn’t having a good day,” he said. McSwain also said he attended a number of Ramp Ceremonies in Iraq and Afghanistan. The ceremony is held to honor a fallen comrade before the soldier's body is flown home. The Everett Police Department Honor Guard Veterans Services Commissioner Jeanne Cristiano during this year’s Memorial Day service on May 27 at Glenwood Cemetery “These typically take place in the middle of the night,” he said.

Min. 24 Hr. Service 781-286-2602 Price Subject to Change without notice million school budget for fiscal year 2020. “We’re comfortable with this budget,” said Charles Obremski, assistant superintendent of Business Affairs, during the May 29 meeting. “We would not come back for any additional funding unless there was an emergency.” Within the total budget figure, $85.3 million will be used to fund the operating budget. The additional $4.5 million will be used for special education transportation. In terms of expenditures, Obremski said the School Department is expecting to pay $25.4 million in City Hall chargebacks. S ome o f th e l ar g e r amounts are $9.1 million for health insurance for current employees, $9.1 million for charter school tuition before reimbursement, $1.9 million for health insurance for retired teachers and $1.5 million to the city’s retirement account. The district has also budgeted $3 million for administrators’ salaries and $39.4 million for teachers’ salaries. According to budget documents, teachers’ salaries have increased by $3.2 million since last year. Compensation for substitute teachers has also climbed from $620,000 to $1.3 million. Therefore, the School Department is asking the city to contribute $6.5 million. However, Obremski said that as of fiscal year 2018, Everett had a per pupil cost of $14,578. “Everett has the lowest per pupil expenditure of any of the surrounding communities,” he said. During the same fiscal year, Malden had a per pupil cost of $14,614, Revere had a cost of $14,778, Somerville had a cost of $20,232 and Cambridge topped the list with a cost of $29,478. Ward 1 Councillor Fred Capone said he was impressed that school officials have kept costs under control. “The most telling thing for me is the per pupil expenditures,” he said. In terms of staffing, the district is looking to fill 52 positions for the 2019-2020 school year. Assistant Superintendent of Schools Kevin Shaw said Everett High School has the greatest staffing need with 12 open positions. Some of those are a social studies director, two deans, an academics director, a physics teacher and a math teacher. He said 10 positions are open at the Parlin School, three of which are for English Language Learner (ELL) teachers. There is also a need for two math interventionists, a grade one teacher and a grade three teacher. Administrators at the Madeline English School are looking to fill nine positions. They include openings for two ELL teachers and a special education inclusion teacher as well as teachers for grades two, three and four. Ward 5 Councillor Rosa DiFlorio said she did not see the need for further discussion. “I’m going to make a motion to accept this; there’s no reason to go through the budget book,” she said. Following the meeting, State Senator Sal DiDomenico said he was able to secure additional education funding for Everett in this year’s Senate budget. “Everett is getting $6 million more,” he said. “There was no cut to funding.” The school budget will be presented to the full council on June 10 for final approval.

THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – Friday, May 31, 2019 Page 7 Gov. Baker refiles legislation to increase penalties for child predators B OSTON – Governor Charlie Baker recently refiled legislation to strengthen penalties for child predators and reform the civil commitment process for sex offenders. First filed in June 2018, the legislation will require a full hearing by a court to resolve disputes over whether a sexually dangerous person should be released from custody. This legislation also increases the mandatory minimum penalty for rape of a child with force by a person previously convicted of sexual offenses to life without parole, and establishes a new child predator offense for rapes of multiple children with force with a mandatory penalty of life without parole. Inadequacies in the current system were recently highlighted by the case of Wayne Chapman, an admitted and convicted repeat child rapist, who was found not sexually dangerous by two qualified examiners and was ordered to be released through a recent decision of the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court. “The case of Wayne Chapman proves that the Massachusetts criminal justice system is falling short when it comes to keeping serial child predators out of our communities and behind bars, and this bill is aimed to address this very concern,” said Baker. “We look forward to working with the Legislature to pass our legislation, protect our children, and keep our neighborhoods safe by preventing the future release of extremely dangerous individuals convicted of heinous crimes.” The Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court recently affirmed a Superior Court decision ordering Chapman’s release, ruling that the Commonwealth’s civil commitment statute does not permit a trial if two qualified examiners agree that the individual no longer remains sexually dangerous, even if other equally qualified experts disagree. The legislation filed by Governor Baker would reform that statute so that any disagreement among experts will result in a trial at which a judge or jury can hear all the evidence about whether a person remains sexually dangerous and make a fully informed decision regarding release. “It’s vital that our court system treats crimes against children with the seriousness they deserve,” said Lieutenant Governor Karyn Polito. “By strengthening the review process for child predators, we can ensure that dangerous individuals remain off our streets and away from our children and communities.” “We need to act quickly to update to our laws to better protect public safety and support victims who deserve to be heard,” said Attorney General Maura Healey. “This legislation makes meaningful changes to the process to prevent dangerous people from being released.” “Our court system needs the tools necessary to keep convicted serial predators like Wayne Chapman from hurting more defenseless children,” said Secretary of Public Safety and Security Thomas Turco. “These individuals simply pose too great a threat to the most vulnerable members of our community to be given another chance to reoffend.” “Our office is always working to protect the public and exploring every possible way to do that, including making necessary changes in the law,” said the president of the Massachusetts District Attorneys’ Association, Plymouth County District Attorney Timothy Cruz. “Gov. Baker’s bill would strengthen the penalties for child predators and reform the civil commitment process.

Page 8 THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – Friday, May 31, 2019 AG's Office issues citations against Logan Airport contractor for wage violations B OSTON — The Attorney General’s Office recently issued citations totaling $74,250 in penalties against a company that provides services for airlines at Logan Airport for violating the state’s wage and hour and earned sick time laws. Flight Services & Systems Inc. (FSS), an Ohio-based company that provides non-TSA related security, wheelchair assistance, and other services for airlines, and its president Phil Armstrong, received three citations for failing to keep true and accurate records, make timely payment of wages, and for violations of the Earned Sick Time Law. The AG’s Office began its investigation after receiving several complaints from FSS employees through the Service Employees Industrial Union, Local 32BJ alleging nonpayment of wages and earned sick time violations. “In Massachusetts, getting paid what you’re owed is a right, not a privilege,” said AG Healey. “I commend these workers for coming forward and hope this action from my office sends a message to employers that we are committed to enforcing wage and hour laws when companies don’t play by the rules.” “For far too long, FSS has been getting away with stealing wages from the working people who keep our airport clean and safe,” said Roxana Rivera, Vice President of 32BJ SEIU. “Wage theft not only hurts AG'S OFFICE | SEE PAGE 13 J& • Reliable Mowing Service • Spring & Fall Cleanups • Mulch & Edging • Sod or Seed Lawns • Shrub Planting & Trimming • Water & Sewer Repairs Joe Pierotti, Jr. Everett Aluminum 10 Everett Ave., Everett 617-389-3839 Owned & operated by the Conti family since 1958 • 57 Years! “Same name, phone number & address for family since 1958 • 61 over half a century.

This provision provides MassHealth with additional critical tools to negotiate lower prices for the most expensive drugs. “The Senate budget allows the Executive Office of Health and Human Services to publicly post the value of a drug if it is found to be unreasonably priced and if there is no agreement on supplemental rebates with the manufacturer. It also promotes transparency by requiring pharmaceutical companies to participate in public hearings and report to state agencies information relating to drug pricing. “We believe the Senate’s approach, which echoes the Governor’s proposal, is the best path toward bringing down prescription drug costs in MassHealth.” Jean-Francois appointed commissioner of Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination B OSTON – Neldy Jean-Francois has been named a Commissioner of the Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination (MCAD) effective May 24, 2019. The three-member Commission serves as the state’s chief civil rights agency and has the authority to investigate, prosecute, adjudicate and resolve cases of discrimination. MCAD is an independent agency of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts that is funded by the state with additional support provided through federal contract payments from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). MCAD protects individuals in numerous protected categories – including race, color, creed, national origin, age, disability, gender, gender identity and sexual orientation – by enforcing the state’s antidiscrimination laws in employment, housing, public accommodations, credit and education. “I am pleased to appoint Neldy Jean-Francois as Commissioner of the Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination,” said Governor Charlie Baker. “Neldy is an experienced public servant who will serve the Commission effectively, and we look forward to her continued leadership.” “Neldy Jean-Francois’ decades of tireless commitment to Massachusetts and its residents makes her a valuable asset to the Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination,” said Lieutenant Governor Karyn Polito. “A highly respected and esteemed public servant, we are pleased to appoint her to this important Commission.” “I am excited and grateful for the opportunity to continue to serve in my new role as a Commissioner of the MCAD,” said Jean-Francois. “When I walked through the doors of MCAD in 1998 as a UMass Amherst investigative intern, I never imagined that I would be coming back 21 years later as one of the Commissioners, and I am honored and deeply humbled for the opportunity the Baker-Polito administration has offered me and look forward to championing the MCAD’s mission of eradicating discrimination and serving the citizens of the Commonwealth in this new role.” MCAD commissioners are appointed by the governor, serve terms of three years and are each delegated regional responsibilities in the Springfield, New Bedford and Boston regions.

THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – Friday, May 31, 2019 Page 13 Crimson Tide baseball upends Medford, Pope John to remain alive for the state tournament By Joe Mitchell T he Everett High School baseball team (8-9) remains alive for a state tournament berth with only a few official days left to the regular season. The Crimson Tide won two out of three games this past week to keep them in contention for the postseason, and one game was postponed because of the unrelenting rain this spring. The MIAA will be announcing the state tournament pairings on Tuesday, June 4, so everything, for better or for worse, has to be done by Monday. With that said, coach Joe Lento’s team still has to win two out of its final three games to clinch a spot in Tuesday’s lottery. The Crimson Tide defeated Medford, 10-5, last week to begin the race to the tournament. Jared Corbett secured the win after going five solid innings on the mound, and Brandon Gibbs paced the offensive attack with multiple hits, including a solo homer. “This was a great team win,” said Lento afterwards. And, of course, it was also a clutch triumph under the circumstances. But then Peabody made it a little bit tougher on the Everett boys, when they escaped with a narrow 2-1 victory. Evan Mallard did his job on the hill to put his teammates over the top, while shutting down the Tanners throughout the first five stanzas. “[Mallard] was phenomenal on the mound,” said Lento. Unfortunately, the offense was stymied by Peabody pitching and simply had trouble putting anything together. Gibbs drove home Everett’s lone run in the game with a single. The Tide did bounce back to beat in-town rival Pope John rather convincingly on Senior Day at Glendale Park. They needed this win to mathematically stay in postseason contention. “The game was another great team win,” said Lento. The Tide was also supposed to play Winchester, but that was the game which was postponed because of rain. While the Tide continued to work hard to get to the state tournament, Lento had high praise for his seniors, including captains Jonathan Fitzgerald and Alex Brown, as well as Evan Mallard, Reimond Romero, D.J. Warren, Michael Sullivan, Jared Corbett, Brian Giannelli and Greg Reed. “This is a great group of kids, and it was definitely a pleasure to see them grow as young student-athletes and baseball players throughout the past four years,” Lento said. Mystic Valley holds NHS induction ceremony M ystic Valley Regional Charter School (MVRCS) was proud to induct Bryant Nguyen and Rachel Silva, both of Everett, into the National Honor Society (NHS) during the school’s 14th annual ceremony at Eastern Avenue on May 23. The student-focused event featured presentations by current senior members of NHS as well as juniors and sophomores, who took the pledge to stand for the organization’s four pillars of scholarship, leadership, service and character. In addition, several colleges annually recognize outstanding juniors with a presentation of a book that is particularly meaningful to said institution in some way. The colleges and universities that presented books were Boston College, Le Moyne College, Harvard University, St. Michael’s College, Suffolk University, Wellesley College, Wesleyan University, Worcester Polytechnic Institute and Yale University. Current MVRCS faculty Martin Boyle and Michael McCarthy distributed the books for their respective alma maters. Under the direction of faculty advisers Casey McKee and Colleen Reynolds, a new set of officers was introduced. The crescendo of the event came towards the end as parents of incoming inductees proudly placed the NHS sash on their sons and daughters. Following the family presentations, led by NHS historian Michaela Correale ’19, the newcomers took the pledge and officially became part of the prestigious society. Warren, Markey, Lynch applaud $35 million in New Markets tax credits to Mass. Housing Investment Corporation Award allows MHIC to invest in community development projects serving low-income areas U .S. Senators Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and Edward J. Markey (D-Mass.), along with Congressman Stephen F. Lynch (D-Mass.), recently applauded the announcement of a New Markets Tax Credit (NMTC) award of $35 million to the Massachusetts Housing Investment Corporation NE New Markets CDE II LLC (MHIC). The tax credit, awarded AG'S OFFICE | FROM PAGE 8 the people who fall victim to this unlawful practice, it hurts local economies by pushing more families below the poverty line and forcing them to rely on public assistance. We applaud Attorney General Maura Healey and her team for holding FSS accountable for their unlawful and immoral behavior, which they couldn’t have done without the help of the brave workers who came forward. The Massachusetts AG has sent a clear message to Boston’s entire business community—follow through the U.S. Department of the Treasury's Community Development Financial Institutions Fund (CDFI Fund), will spur investment and economic growth in low-income urban and rural communities across the Commonwealth. "This NMTC award is wonderful news, and will support economic development and strengthen our neighborour local laws and treat working families right, or there will be consequences.” Investigators found that FSS paid its workers less than the $12 minimum hourly wage as required by MassPort for certain airline contractors during the time period covered by the investigation, including paying wheelchair attendants only $11.25 per hour. FSS contended that the remainder of the wheelchair attendants’ rate was made up by tips, but workers claim they did not receive tips consistently enough to bring their compensation hoods," said Senator Warren. "Thanks to this federal investment, MHIC will be able to deliver greater benefits to working families and small businesses in Massachusetts and across New England." "I congratulate MHIC for securing this important tax credit that will help provide much-needed support in vulnerable communities," said up to the MassPort minimum wage. The AG’s investigation also found that FSS failed to provide employees with required notices about their rights under the Earned Sick Time law, and frequently failed to pay workers in a timely fashion. In a separate investigation, MassPort began auditing FSS in April 2017 and determined that many airline-contracted employees were making less than the MassPort minimum wage. During the course of the AG’s Office investigation, MassPort directed FSS to pay $111,000 in restitution to emMarkey. "Economic growth comes when we provide affordable housing to all income levels, and this federal investment will be a boost to Commonwealth families and neighborhoods. I thank Sen. Warren and Rep. Lynch for their support for this federal partnership." "I am very pleased to see that MHIC is a recipient of this generous $35M award," said Lynch. ployees. Under agreements with MassPort that allow them to operate at Logan, airline contractors are required to pay a minimum hourly rate known as the MassPort minimum wage that is higher than the state minimum wage. During the time period in question in this case, the MassPort minimum wage was $12 per hour, including tips. As a result of the investigations, MassPort eliminated the tipped wage for airport contractors in 2018. The MassPort minimum wage has since gone up to $14 per hour. "With the need to create more housing at all income levels, I am grateful to Sen. Warren and Sen. Markey for their efforts to make this happen. I believe this will have a big positive impact and I look forward to seeing our communities grow after these investments are made."

Page 16 THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – Friday, May 31, 2019 Lady Tide softball clinches postseason berth with resounding win over Waltham By Joe Mitchell T he Everett Crimson Tide Softball Team (11-6) began a marathon stretch of makeup games this past week with a resounding 13-3 triumph over host Malden on May 23, and they wrapped it up with another explosive win, this time against visiting Waltham on Monday afternoon (May 27), 14-0. While all of this was going on, the Tide also clinched a state tournament berth in a laugher over the non-league Hawks. Ariana Garay went the distance in the circle, pitching all seven innings to earn the win over Malden. She scattered five hits and allowed just one walk and two earned runs while fanning seven Golden Tornadoes. The Tide jumped on Malden right away with four runs in the very first inning. Maddy Duraes began the inning with a single to the outfield. Veronica Bento was then hit by a pitch, before Maddy Smith’s sacrifice bunt advanced them into scoring position for Kaylee Nearen, whose double brought them home. Ashley Yebba then ran for Nearen, who scored on Garay’s double. Garay came home on Elizabeth Peach’s single to the outfield. The Tide tacked on two more runs in the second. Duraes started it off with a double. Bento then drew a walk. After a passed ball by Malden put runners again in scoring position, Smith knocked in Duraes on a tag up from third. Nearen kept the threat going after getting hit by a pitch, before Peach delivered again with a run producing single. The Golden Tornadoes cut the deficit in half with three in the second, but the Everett girls got one of those runs back in the fourth to go up by four, 7-3. Nearen got the fourth inning threat started with a fielder’s choice. Yebba once again ran for her, and she eventually scored on an error after a walk to Peach. The Tide broke open the game in the fifth with four more runs. They loaded the bases before Smith doubled in two. After a couple of walks and a bunt single reloaded the bases, Nearen closed out the uprising while also maintaining the trend with a tworun double. Everett scored twice more in the seventh for good measure. Alyssa Bessler walked, and SidKaylee Nearen Yalixa Colon Sidney Hennessey Rachel Zullo ney Hennessey singled to lead off the frame. Both runners moved up on a passed ball and came home on a Yalixa Colon double to complete the onslaught. “Ariana pitched a great game,” said coach Stacy Poste-Schiavo. “She was on her game, and her defense backed her up when Malden was able to put the ball in play. After losing to Medford, the girls wanted and needed this win.” The Tide closed out the marathon stretch of games Monday afternoon (May 27) at home versus Waltham. The home team once again showed no mercy, hammering the Hawks to the tune of 14-0. “This was our fourth game in a row this past week, because of the rain,” said Poste. “We are taking each game one at a time at this point, and are just focusing on improving our record for the tournament.” Garay pitched all five innings in this mercy rule–shortened game. She gave up only three hits to record her second shutout of the season. Duraes started another uprising off with a single in the first. Bento then executed a perfect sacrifice bunt that she was able to beat out to put runners on first and third. Smith then singled in one before Nearen tripled home two. Nearen then soon came home on a sacrifice fly hit by Garay to give her teammates a quick 4-0 lead. The Tide exploded for 10 runs in the second to seal the deal in a hurry, including a two-run blast by Bento, who also drove in another two with a double, before the end of the inning. “Waltham was getting the bat on the ball, but our defense made all the right plays,” said Poste. “This was a great game, and it was made even better, because we got to honor our seniors, including four-year starting catcher Kaylee Nearen and first-year varsity seniors Yalixa Colon, Sidney Hennessey and Rachel Zullo.” The Tide also took on Salem on the road Saturday afternoon, and ended up defeating the Witches, 9-6. Celeste Fuccillo pitched all seven innings in this game to pick up the victory after yielding 11 hits, one walk and six earned runs. She also whiffed nine. Everett scored one run in each of the first two innings and four more in the third, while Fuccillo struck out the side in the second. But the Witches got back into the game with three in the third. But the locals got them back in the sixth. The Salem girls didn’t go quietly – scoring one in the sixth and two in the seventh – but it was simply too little, too late to complete their comeback efforts. After games against Lynn Classical at home on Saturday, June 1, at 5 p.m. and a rematch at Salem on Monday to wrap up the regular season, the state tournament pairings will then be announced on Tuesday. First-round games will probably begin late next week. Check out www.miaa. net on Tuesday night, June 4, for the complete list of tournament pairings.

In 2017 and 2018, several Boston City FC players arrived at Medford High School in the club’s branded minibus for a “Pitch Invasion” as they took over Medford Soccer sessions. The players and coaches spent two hours teaching soccer fundamentals using fun training drills, while partner Fitzgerald Physical Therapy Associates gave instruction on warm up exercises to help avoid injuries. “One of the pillars of our philosophy of being a club that is active in the local community is engaging local youth soccer players, so this Saturday’s match will be very special for everyone associated with Boston City FC,” said the club’s Managing Director, Craig Tornberg. “We have established a wonderful relationship with Medford Soccer during the past three years and are delighted to continue that during the current season and welcome the next generation of soccer enthusiasts to our home match at Hormel Stadium.” The Lions have played their first two matches of the 2019 NPSL season at Harry Della Russo Stadium and will bring competitive action against two of the league’s top-ranked teams to Medford. This Saturday’s opponent, the Brooklyn Italians, has won three straight matches, while the legendary New York Cosmos, who visit on June 15, are the league leaders with five wins. Boston City FC arrive at Hormel Stadium having beaten Greater Lowell Rough Diamonds 2-1 last week with two goals from joint top-scorer John Dumbuya, but lost the return match 2-0 on Sunday.

Page 20 THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – Friday, May 31, 2019 Beacon Hill Roll Call By Bob Katzen THE HOUSE AND SENATE. Beacon Hill Roll Call records local senators' votes on roll calls from the week of May 20-24. There were no roll calls in the House last week. All Senate roll calls are on the Senate debate of the $42.8 billion fiscal 2020 state budget. Many of the 1,142 amendments filed by senators never came to a roll call vote and were simply approved or rejected one at a time on voice votes without debate. To move things along even faster, the Senate also did its usual “bundling” of many amendments. Instead of acting on the amendments one at a time, hundreds of the proposed amendments are bundled and put into two piles—one pile that will be approved and the other that will be rejected with a single vote on each pile. Senate President Karen Spilka, or the senator who is filling in for her at the podium, orchestrates the approval and rejection of the bundled amendments with a simple: “All those in favor say ‘aye,’ those opposed say ‘no.’ The ayes have it and the amendments are approved.” Or, “All those in favor say ‘aye,’ those opposed say ‘no.’ The no’s have it and the amendments are rejected.” Senators don’t actually vote yes or no and, in fact, they don't say a word. The outcome was determined earlier behind closed doors. $42.8 BILLION FISCAL 2019 BUDGET (S 3) Senate 40-0, approved an estimated $42.8 billion fiscal 2020 budget for the fiscal year beginning July 1. Over a threeday period, the Senate added an estimated $74 million to the original version of the budget and considered and voted on more than 1,100 proposed amendments. Supporters said the budget is a fiscally responsible and balanced one that makes vital investments in the state while continuing fiscal responsibility. “We can be really proud of the work we have accomplished,” said Senate President Karen Spilka (D-Ashland). “We expressed our best hopes for the future of our commonwealth and together we made the hard decisions to produce a fiscally responsible budget that truly reflects our Senate values.” The House has approved a different version of the budget. A House-Senate conference committee will hammer out a compromise version and send it to the governor. (A “Yes” vote is for the budget.) Sen. Sal DiDomenico Yes INCREASE IN REGISTER OF DEEDS FEES (S 3) Senate 38-2, approved an amendment that would raise the existing surcharge on most Registry of Deeds’ real estate transaction fees by $30 (from $20 to $50). This money helps to fund the Community Preservation Act (CPA) which helps cities and towns preserve open space and historic sites, create affordable housing and develop outdoor recreational facilities. Amendment supporters said that when the fund was created in 2000, the state was able to provide communities with a 100 percent match of the funds the community raised through their local option surcharge of up to 3 percent of the local property tax. The state now only matches about 11 percent because of a lack of funding. “I have been trying to increase revenue for the state CPA matching funds for several sessions,” said Sen. Cindy Creem (D-Newton), the sponsor of the amendment. “Over 170 communities are waiting for us to keep our state’s promise to meaningfully partner with them for housing, historic preservation, open space and recreation. Raising the match from 11 percent to 30 percent will help move these important projects along.” “I do not support making housing transaction costs in the commonwealth more expensive when not all cities and towns are opted into the CPA program,” said Sen. Ryan Fattman (R-Webster). “Massachusetts housing and closing costs are already consistently highest in the nation.” “The state is realizing record tax revenue exceeding our benchmark by over 900 million dollars,” said Sen. Dean Tran (R-Leominster). “This is indicative of a strong economy and an example of why we should put an emphasis on economic development, creating jobs and help put people to work so that they can provide for their families. It is not the time to raise taxes and fees.” (A “Yes” vote is for raising the surcharge. A “No” vote is against raising it.) Sen. Sal DiDomenico Yes SECURITY OF ELECTIONS (S 3) Senate 9-30, rejected an amendment that would require the secretary of state, in consultation with the United States Election Assistance Commission (EAC), to develop new rules and standards to ensure the cyber-security and general security of elections in the commonwealth to combat election fraud and other election security threats. The bill requires the rules to comply with those established by the United States Department of Homeland Security. Amendment supporters said the integrity of our democracy and voting system must be protected. They noted that the state has received $7.9 million from the federal government for the state to spend on election security but has only spent $1 million. Amendment opponents said the EAC and the Department of Homeland Security have not yet issued any guidelines for the state to follow. They noted they support improving election security but argued the state will have to wait until the federal government can get its act together so we can use the funds allocated to us to work on these issues with them. (A “Yes” vote is for the amendment. A “No” vote is against it.) Sen. Sal DiDomenico No RAISE MINIMUM EDUCATION AID TO CITIES AND TOWNS (S 3 ) Senate 7-32, rejected an amendment that would increase the minimum Chapter 70 education aid each city and town receives from $30 per pupil to $100 per pupil. Amendment supporters said that despite the $268 million increase in education aid in the budget, more than 180 school districts would see a hike of only $30 per student this year. They argued that the $30 figure is unfair and insufficient for those districts’ needs. “There are suburban and rural communities that are unfairly represented in the chapter 70 education funding formula and rely upon minimum aid funding per student in the state budget,” said Sen. Ryan Fattman (R-Webster). "One hundred and eighty-two districts across the commonwealth are minimum aid districts with declining student enrollment and $100 per student would have adequately helped these districts which suffer from a broken education funding mechanism.” "I was encouraged by the Senate’s commitment to invest in our public school system,” said Sen. Vinny deMacedo (R-Plymouth). “However, the Senate's $300 million investment would have had a minimal effect on the communities I represent. As minimum aid communities they would benefit most from a higher per pupil commitment. By spending $100 per pupil the Senate would have been able to better meet the budget needs of my communities and the educational goals of their students.” Some amendment opponents said that even districts receiving the minimum will still see an increase in Chapter 70 aid next year. They noted that the education aid in the Senate is significantly higher than the plan proposed by Gov. Baker and the one approved by the House last month. Others said the Senate should tackle the broader issue of school funding through legislation now pending that will update and make major changes in the school funding formula. “The Senate fiscal year 2020 budget provides $268 million more in Chapter 70 funding to our local school districts than in fiscal year 2019, the largest annual increase in two decades,” said Sen. Jason Lewis (D-Winchester) who opposed the amendment. “This budget also makes significant progress in implementing the recommendations of the Foundation Budget Review Commission, in order to ensure that our public schools are adequately and equitably funded so that every student across the commonwealth has access to a great education.” (A “Yes” vote is for the $100 per pupil. A “No” vote is against it.) Sen. Sal DiDomenico No $1.5 MILLION FOR CIVICS EDUCATION (S 3) Senate 39-0, approved an amendment providing $1.5 million for the Civics Project Trust Fund to promote civics education in the state. Amendment supporters said that this funding is a beginning and will capitalize the Civics Project Trust Fund, created by the Legislature last year as part of a broader civics bill, to support the infrastructure, curriculum resources and professional development needed to integrate high-quality civics education into our schools beginning in September 2020. “This money is a down payment on the future of civics education in Massachusetts,” said Sen. Harriette Chandler (D-Worcester), the sponsor of the amendment. “The students that will take these history courses and participate in these civics projects are the future leaders of this state. The future leaders of this state deserve a curriculum that has received robust investment.” The civics education law that was signed into law last year added more topics the civics courses must cover including the function and composition of the branches of local, state and federal government; the roles and responsibilities of a citizen in a democracy; the development of skills to access, analyze and evaluate written and digital media as it relates to history and civics; community diversity and historical trends in voter registration; civic participation relative to disenfranchised voter populations; opportunities to identify and debate issues relative to power, economic status and the common good in democracy. Other provisions include requiring each public school serving grades eight to 12 to provide at least one student-led civics project for each student; and requiring the state to provide information to cities and promote youth membership on municipal boards, committees and commissions. (A “Yes” vote is for the $1.5 million.) Sen. Sal DiDomenico Yes $350,000 FOR SUICIDE PREVENTION (S 3) Senate 39-0, approved an amendment increasing funding by $350,000 (from $4,469,372 to $4,819,372) for suicide prevention. “One of my top priorities this session is mental health and suicide prevention, and this amendment ensures that key programs are maintained to provide much-needed services,” said the amendment’s sponsor Sen. Barry Finegold (D-Andover). “We’re facing an epidemic of teen suicide across the country. While teen drunk driving and teen pregnancy rates are way down, suicide rates for teen girls have doubled in recent years, and suicide rates for teen boys have increased by more than 30 percent. This funding, paired with my legislative agenda this session, would look out for our most vulnerable young people and give them the resources they need.” (A “Yes” vote is for the $350,000.) Sen. Sal DiDomenico Yes $500,000 FOR SECURITY (S 3) Senate 40-0, approved an amendment that would provide $500,000 for a nonprofit secuBEACON | SEE PAGE 23

"We are pleased to have received a $35 million allocation in Round 15 so that we can continue to help revitalize neighborhoods, create jobs and expand opportunities for low-income communities. And we are grateful for the ongoing support of our Senators and Congressional delegation in Massachusetts." The award will allow MHIC to receive a credit against federal income taxes for making qualified equity investments in investment vehicles known as Community Development Entities (CDEs). These CDEs offer the credits to taxable investors in exchange for stock or a capital interest in the CDE. All of the qualified equity investment must, in turn, be used by the CDE to provide investments in low-income communities– investments that will help finance community development projects, stimulate economic growth, and create jobs. MHIC, founded in 1990, is a premier lender and investor providing financing for affordable housing and community development projects in Massachusetts and throughout New England. They finance large and small projects of many types, including rental, homeownership, commercial, mixed use, single room occupancy, and seniors housing.

Savvy Senior Dear Concerned, Aches, pains and injuries are not uncommon among older gardeners. Because gardening is such a physical activity that often requires a lot of bending and stooping, squatting and kneeling, gripping and lifting, it can be extremely taxing on an aging body. Back pain and knee injuries are most common among older gardeners, along with carpal tunnel syndrome and tennis elbow. To help keep your mom injury-free this summer, here are some tips and gardening equipment ideas that can make gardening a little easier. Warm Up With gardening, good form is very important as well as not overdoing any one activity. A common problem is that gardeners often kneel or squat, putting extra pressure on their knees. Then, to spare their knees, they might stand and bend over for long stretches to weed, dig and plant, straining their back and spine. To help your mom protect her body, she needs to warm up before beginning. Start by stretching, focusing on the legs and lower back. And keep changing positions and activities. Don’t spend hours weeding a flowerbed. After 15 minutes of weeding, she should stand up, stretch, and switch to another activity like pruning the bushes or just take a break. It’s also important that she recognizes her physical limitations and doesn’t try to do too much all at once. And, when lifting heaver objects, she needs to remember to use her legs to preserve her back. She can do this by keeping the item close to her body and squatting to keep her back as vertical as possible. Laborsaving Tools The right gardening equipment can help too. Kneeling pads can protect knees, and garden seats or stools are both THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – Friday, May 31, 2019 BEACON | FROM PAGE 20 Adaptive Gardening: Tips and Tools for Older Gardeners Dear Savvy Senior, Can you recommend some good tools and tips for senior gardeners? My 77-year-old mother loves to work in the garden but over the past few years has been plagued by injuries. Concerned Daughter back and knee savers. Lightweight garden carts can make hauling bags of mulch, dirt, plants or other heavy objects much easier. And long-handled gardening tools can help ease the strain on the back by keeping your mom in a standing upright position versus bent over. There are also ergonomic gardening tools with fatter handles and other design features that can make lawn and garden activities a little easier. Easier Watering The chore of carrying water or handling a heavy, awkward hose can also be difficult for older gardeners. Some helpful options include lightweight fabric hoses instead of heavy rubber hoses; soaker or drip hoses that can be snaked throughout the garden; thin coil hoses that can be used on the patio or small areas; a hose caddy and reel for easier hose transport around the yard; and a self-winding hose chest that puts the hose up automatically. There are also a variety of ergonomic watering wands that are lightweight, easy to grip, and reach those hard to-getto plants. To find ergonomic gardening tools and the recommended watering aids, check with local retail stores that sell lawn and garden supplies or try online retailers like Gardeners.com or RadiusGarden.com. Container Gardening If your mom’s backyard garden has become too much for her to handle, she should consider elevated garden beds or container gardening – using big pots, window boxes, hanging baskets, barrels or tub planters. This is a much easier way to garden because it eliminates much of the bend and strain of gardening but still gives her the pleasure of making things grow. Trellises are another nice option that would allow her to garden vertically instead of horizontally. Send your senior questions to: Savvy Senior, P.O.

Eric Lesser (D-Longmeadow), the sponsor of the amendment. “These incidents are meant to intimidate some people in our communities, and they tear at the fabric of who we are as a country based on the equal right of everyone to participate in our democracy.

Sen. Sal DiDomenico Yes HOW LONG WAS LAST WEEK'S SESSION? Beacon Hill Roll Call tracks the length of time that the House and Senate were in session each week. Many legislators say that legislative sessions are only one aspect of the Legislature's job and that a lot of important work is done outside of the House and Senate chambers. They note that their jobs also involve committee work, research, constituent work and other matters that are important to their districts. Critics say that the Legislature does not meet regularly or long enough to debate and vote in public view on the thousands of pieces of legislation that have been filed. They note that the infrequency and brief length of sessions are misguided and lead to irresponsible late-night sessions 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 May 2024, the House met for a total of one hour and 28 minutes while the Senate met for a total of 32 hours and 51 minutes. Mon.
