Check out our NEW website! www.messingerinsurance.com defamation lawsuit began questioning Everett Leader Herald newspaper publisher/reporter Joshua Resnek in a videotape deposition at the Boston law offi ces of Saul Ewing Arnstein & Lehr LLP. During questioning, Attorney Jeff Robbins established a timeline of Resnek’s employment status and fi nancial woes, which suddenly disappeared just months prior to his new job as publisher of the Everett Leader Herald. According to the deposition, Resnek stated that he and his wife, Carolyn Resnek, had fi led for bankruptcy protection on two occasions, in 2001 and again in 2017, due to Internal Revenue Service and Massachusetts Department of Revenue liens, judgments by creditors and attachments to property. Resnek described his fi nancial state as, at one time, broke and sleeping out of his car after losing millions of dollars in personal wealth and real estate holdings due to the recession. Resnek and his wife signed a voluntary petition for bankruptcy protection on April 18, 2017. Resnek was then shown a signed document showing that he and his wife were discharged from bankruptcy on Sept. 26, 2017. Two months later, on November 29, 2017, Resnek would file as manager for Dorchester Publications LLC with the Massachusetts Secretary of the Commonwealth Corporations division, leaving off the owner’s name, Matthew Philbin. Resnek stated that he wasn’t told to fi ll that part of the document in – but admitted that his “partner” Matthew Philbin was the owner of the newspaper. Resnek claimed that he wasn’t an employee of Dorchester Publications LLC, had no written agreement – just an oral one – receiving a 1099 IRS form from Philbin. When asked if he reached this oral understanding with Philbin before or after he was discharged from bankruptcy, Resnek said he didn’t remember. In the most disturbing testimony given by Resnek, he was asked about the derogatory name he gave the mayor in his many articles and editorials, “Kickback Carlo.” “You’ve called him “kickback Carlo, correct?” asked Robbins. “Yes,” replied Resnek. “Do you have any evidence that he’s ever taken a kickRESNEK | SEE PAGE 2

When asked if the newspaper was totally dependent on advertising revenue, Resnek stated, “Not exactly. It’s dependent upon Mr. Philbin’s desire to keep the paper going.” Resnek testified that he hadn’t been employed since 2012 when he was forced out of the Independent Newspaper Group, owners of the EvASNGELO’ FULL SERVICE Regular Unleaded $4.679 Mid Unleaded $4.959 Super $4.379 Diesel Fuel $4.659 44 Years of Excellence!! 1978-2022 KERO $8.99 DEF $4.75 9 DYED ULS $5.199 9 HEATING OIL 24-Hour Burner Service Call for Current Price!

According to the deposition, Resnek had taken the money without informing his partners in the Group. Stephen Quigley, 75% majority owner, discovered emails on Resnek’s work computer of the deal. The Independent Newspaper Group publishes four newspapers in Boston, and Quigley felt that Resnek’ side deal impugned the integrity of the Group. Resnek – who had what he claimed was 10-15% ownership of the newspaper group along with four others and worked there from 1999 to 2012 – was, once again, out of a job over what he claimed was a “strong diff erence of opinion.” Resnek was then asked about a company called Chelsea Press LLC, which he stated was a checking account and that it never published a newspaper but did a lot of printing business from 2018 to 2020. When asked how much he earned over the last five years from the Chelsea Press, Resnek stated that Dorchester Press (Philbin) issues a weekly check to him made out to the Chelsea Press LLC. “So the way you work out your arrangement with Mr. Philbin is he doesn’t pay you. He writes a check not to you but to Chelsea Press LLC, and you deposit it in that account and you make expenditures for your personal expenses through that account?” asked Robbins. “Yes,” replied Resnek. Resnek said he worked briefly for the Boston Herald and has had a longstanding relationship with The Boston Globe, saying that at one time he was an investigative reporter, but he admitted he was just a freelancer and hadn’t been paid by The Globe in 10 years. He also admitted to being fi red by Regan Communications, a prominent Boston media company, after only three months on the job, denying the allegation of inappropriate behavior, a sexual harassment issue. The questioning moved on to Resnek’s LinkedIn profile and the Everett Leader Herald website, which contains a biography written by Resnek. The attorney asked him why he still represented himself in the LinkedIn bio as an employee and a partner of Independent Newspaper Group LLC when he hadn’t been for 10 years. He was also asked about being president of Chelsea Press LLC, which he claimed was only a checking account and never published any newspapers. “Well, Chelsea Press LLC is Joshua Resnek,” replied Resnek. He also states in his LinkedIn bio that he is president of “Globex services and Solutions/Chelsea Press LLC” – Globex is a company owned by his son which has an arrangement with a City of Boston vendor – which Resnek claimed was in title only and without compensation. The attorney asked him about a description of Globex which stated the company was “experts at Print, Digital and OOH Advertising Campaigns - with a Nationwide Reach.” When asked if he was an expert in the mediums described in the bio, Resnek stated he was in print and an “almost expert” in digital – but said he didn’t know what an OOH advertising campaign was. Robbins then asked Resnek if he was the owner of Dorchester Publications/Chelsea Press LLC as he stated on the bio; Resnek replied that he was owner and publisher of Chelsea Press only and only editor and publisher of Dorchester Publications. The questioning turned to the Everett Leader Herald website bio, which he admitted he wrote. Asked about a publication called Casino Boston, a casino-oriented publication that was in publication from 2016 to 2017, Resnek stated that he should have removed that from the bio as it hadn’t been published in fi ve years. Despite his claim to have “almost expertise” in digital, Resnek stated he placed it but didn’t know how to remove it. “I posted it – I posted it years ago,” he said to the attorney. The attorney then circled back to Chelsea Press LLC, which – as stated on Resnek’s LinkedIn profi le – he was owner of since May of 2000. But Resnek stated he founded the company in 1997 but admitted that he did write on his bio the May 2000 date. But the attorney pointed out that Resnek fi led with the Secretary of State on behalf of Chelsea Press LLC on or about August of 2016. When asked why he refi led for a company that was no longer in operation, Resnek stated that it ceased to exist for a while after he went bankrupt several times so he felt he needed to start it back up. “You think you had to fi le a new LLC to create it?” asked Robbins. “Yes,” replied Resnek, “I just did it myself.” “Then why didn’t you list the owner,” asked Robbins. “You didn’t think there was anything dishonest or nefarious or corrupt about fi ling an LLC document which didn’t disclose the owner, did you?” “That’s correct,” said Resnek. Robbins showed Resnek a document from the Massachusetts Secretary of State’s Offi ce showing that Chelsea Press LLC was involuntarily dissolved by a court on June 28, 2019, which Resnek claimed he was unaware of until that moment. “So the fi rst you’ve ever heard that the LLC that you say you’re still the owner of was involuntarily dissolved three years ago is right now. Is that what you’re saying?” asked Robbins. “Yes,” said Resnek. Questioning moved on to the journalists whom Resnek frequently sent his articles or links to; he stated the recipients were Boston Globe reporters Stephanie Ebbert, Andrea Estes and Steve Kurkjian. Resnek stated he spoke or emailed Ebbert and Estes about DeMaria because The Globe has an interest in municipal corruption. “Did you try to get Stephanie Ebbert and Andrea Estes to, quote, as you put it, ‘do stuff ’ for you, correct?” asked Robbins. Resnek replied that he wanted The Globe reporters to “make their own judgments about its newsworthiness.” Resnek claimed he didn’t send them articles – just information – but then corrected himself by saying he did send them articles. Resnek then admitted that he posted the articles that were the subject of the lawsuit online knowing that the mayor has a family, a wife, three children and elderly parents. Resnek was asked if he knew the impact of what the stories he wrote about the mayor would have on his family; Resnek claimed he was a humanist and a writer and wasn’t out to destroy somebody’s family. The questioning turned to a June 2018 editorial that Resnek wrote claiming that the mayor was hurting the Leader Herald’s bottom line in advertising revenue, complaining RESNEK | SEE PAGE 5 Prices subject to change Ask about our Heating Oil Conditioner!

THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, JUNE 24, 2022 Page 3 School Committee votes not to extend superintendent’s contract; forms ad hoc sub-committee By Tara Vocino T he School Committee voted not to extend the superintendent’s contract to 2026 during their meeting on Tuesday at Everett High School. “I love my job,” Superintendent of Schools Priya Tahiliani said. “I am respectfully requesting that you vote tonight to approve my extension.” Tahiliani was asking to extend a current contract to June 30, 2026. Her current contract ends on Feb. 28, 2024, but Tahiliani requested the School Committee to vote on a contract extension Tuesday evening despite the School Committee’s December 1, 2022, deadline should they decide to renegotiate. The contract states they need to make a decision before or by December of this year. The committee will develop an ad hoc superintendent sub-committee consisting of three School Committee members. Ward 2 School Committee member Jason Marcus suggested that they have a lot of time, as it would extend to February 2024 otherwise. “Time is subjective,” Tahiliani replied to Marcus. “If it doesn’t go through, next year would be my last full year in this role.” Tahiliani added she doesn’t believe it’s too soon and she doesn’t want to start a year that she can’t fi nish. In regards to a string of incidents within the school district, Tahiliani said she will have a security hiring update and provide short- and long-term solutions at the July School Committee meeting that would require a collaborative eff ort. Ward 6 School Committee Member and Vice Chairperson Michael McLaughlin said it’s a time element for him, not extending the contract per se. “It wouldn’t add costs to the School Committee but would extend costs to the school system,” McLaughlin said. “And that’s okay, but there is a process and a timeline in place when asked to do such.” He was quick to note it wasn’t personal against Tahiliani but that he wanted to refer the piece back to sponsor. However, since they didn’t have a two-thirds majority vote, they continued discussion. Ward 5 School Committee Member Marcony AlmeiDuring Tuesday’s School Committee meeting, Supt. of Schools Priya Tahiliani asked the School Committee to extend her contract, which presently ends in 2024, until 2026. Ward 6 School Committee Member/Vice Chairperson Michael McLaughlin said he wasn’t prepared to extend the superintendent contract, in the interest of time, on Tuesday at Everett High School. da-Barros was in favor of extending her contract on Tuesday. “She has faced unprecedented challenges — one was a pandemic that tried to close Ward 3 School Committee Member/Chairperson Jeanne Cristiano, who originally was against extending the contract prematurely, said the superintendent puts students fi rst.

THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, JUNE 24, 2022 Page 5 RESNEK | FROM PAGE 2 that DeMaria wasn’t giving a penny in city ads to the newspaper that was criticizing him on nearly a weekly basis. “Can we agree that you’ve been angry at the mayor because you held him responsible for advertising revenue not coming into the coff ers of the paper?” asked the attorney. “That’s a valid statement,” replied Resnek. Resnek further claimed that the mayor forced a major advertiser from advertising with the Leader Herald but refused to reveal the name of the advertiser or any other advertiser. The Leader Herald reporter was asked for his defi nition of extortion, Resnek replied that it is when “one thing is withheld from someone else to give someone else an advantage.” When asked if he knew if stealing was a crime, Resnek replied, “I would not consider stealing in some respects a crime.” When asked if he knew extortion was a crime, Resnek replied, “I would say, in some respects, that the use of the word ‘extortion’ to connote the interaction between people is not a crime.” Resnek was then asked to look at the article he wrote in which he stated, “We won’t be intimidated or extorted here by the mayor” – “you were saying he was trying to extort you, correct?” – to which Resnek dismissively replied, “Water off a duck’s tail,” claiming that it wasn’t his words and that he wasn’t prosecuting the mayor. The attorneys then delved into a Sept. 6, 2021, redacted email thread between Resnek and Philbin where Philbin complained that the Everett Co-Operative Bank had stopped advertising and blamed the mayor. Resnek was then asked if he contacted anyone at the bank to find out why the ad was pulled; he stated he did not. “Did you make any eff ort, sir, to ascertain from anybody at the Everett Cooperative Bank whether or not Mr. DeMaria had intervened to get the bank to not provide money to your newspaper?” “I did not,” replied Resnek. He was then asked why he stated in the email thread that the Everett Co-Operative Bank was not advertising in the Leader Herald because the bank was somehow connected to the city putting money in the bank interest free. Resnek replied that’s what he believed to be true. Resnek was then asked if he spoke to anybody at the bank or City Hall about if the allegation was true. “Did you ask to look at any public records reflecting the holdings of city money in various banks to see what the interest rate was?” asked Robbins. “No, I didn’t,” replied Resnek. Resnek was then shown a list of fi nancial institutions, all public record, in which the City of Everett has money deposited: 10 accounts, all showing interest that is paid. “Did you do any investigation to ascertain whether or not there was a single account at Everett Cooperative Bank where city money was held which was interest free?” asked Robbins. Resnek claimed he was told by a variety of sources – sources which he refused to name. Resnek gave another deposition on Thursday and is scheduled for another at a later date.

Page 6 THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, JUNE 24, 2022 Veterans Benefi t Summer Concert Series Entrain takes the Kowloon outdoor stage on Sunday Special to Th e Advocate E ntrain, an eclectic, Martha’s Vineyard-based six-piece band, has been thrilling critics and fans alike since its inception in 1993. Formed and led by drummer Tom Major — while on hiatus from touring with Rock legend Bo Diddley — Entrain has been blessed with a list of top tier musicians over the years. The current lineup consists of Major and lead singer/ guitar wiz Brian Alex, bassist M’talewa Thomas, saxophonist/keyboardist/percussionist Rob Loyot, saxophonist/percussionist Hilary Noble and trombonist/keyboardist Lennie Peterson. All are road tested, having spent time with such diverse players as Bo Diddley, Carly Simon, Chuck Berry, Southside Johnny, James Montgomery, Gary Burton, and Blood, Sweat and Tears. Entrain has recorded eight albums, all of which have been praised for their ability to shift eff ortlessly between musical styles — from rock, blues, calypso and ska, to zydeco, jazz and funk — often within the same song. “The whole Entrain concept is based on the drums and infectious rhythms. Once we’ve got that.... anything goes, everything goes,” explains Major. “Entrain zips along like a lively summit conference between the Dave Matthews Band and Little Feat,” according to Steve Morse of The Boston Globe. Entrain’s goal is not just to be the biggest and the best, says Major. “We want to create music that makes people feel good. When we look out from the stage, all we see is smiling faces of all ages and bodies moving. You can’t beat that feeling. At the same time if we can help to promote positive values and lifestyles... great! There’s enough negativity in the world, let’s spread a little joy around and watch how infectious it can be.” On Sunday, June 26, Entrain will be performing outside of Kowloon Restaurant, as part of a summer Veterans benefi t concert series. Tickets are available at GimmeLive.com or at the door on the day of the show.

Page 8 THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, JUNE 24, 2022 Everett man hopes to back local youth with non-profi t The ‘Lettermen’ will work to foster teen ties By Stephen Hagan ‘E verett has a special place in my heart.’ — Ross Pietrantonio An eff ort is now being made in Everett to improve the climate for city’s youth. Some might say the eff ort will be a welcome change. “The Lettermen” is a new group that aims to raise scholarship money for Everett High School athletes and band members. Everett’s Ross Pietrantonio, along with his other contemporaries, has created the nonprofi t group. “The city has changed drastically,” he said. “A lot of kids don’t have the support system I had when I grew up. The idea is just building more support in the city.” The goal, according to Pietrantonio, is to have 50 members sign up the fi rst year and as many as 200 the second year. Pietrantonio is known for being a member of the winning Everett High School football team that claimed three consecutive titles from 2001-2003. Named captain of the Crimson Tide his senior year, Pietrantonio believes he knows something about leadership. The aim of The Lettermen is to foster engagement in youth sports, with a stress on mental health awareness and mentorship. The eff ort will strive to connect Everett residents LIKE US ON FACEBOOK ADVOCATE NEWSPAPER FACEBOOK.COM/ADVOCATE.NEWS.MA and students. “There’s just a really big division between the city and the school system,” said Pietrantonio. He added the city needs to also devote more time and energy to the School Department’s Arts Department and its STEM program. “I think we need to stop dividing us,” Pietrantonio said. “There’s been a shadow hanging over Everett for the past few years. I want to bring people together for a positive impact.” Part of the eff ort being made includes honoring a former teammate who died suddenly a month ago. Matarazzo was also a friend of Pietrantonio. A “Celebration of Life” in Matarazzo’s honor will be held on July 7 at the Village Bar and Grill in Everett. “Everyone is welcome,” said Pietrantonio, adding fundraising eff orts at the gathering will back a scholarship in Michael J. Matarazzo’s name. Between 100-150 people are expected to attend. Matarazzo was a running back, wide receiver and safety for Everett High. “I had the privilege of playing with him,” said Pietrantonio. “He was quiet, on time and he was a dependable person. He was just a really good kid. “It’s the least we can do for him.” Everett born and bred Pietrantonio was born and raised in Everett. He tried his hand at politics in the city, running for a Ward 6 seat on the Everett City Council last year but ended up losing his bid during the November 2021 election. Now, he wants to help his fellow residents in a diff erent way. He wants young people in the city to have the same kind of opportunities he once had. “I want to make sure the seniors do what they want to do,” said Pietrantonio. “To see the development of these seniors is impressive.” The 2004 Everett High School graduate said young people in Everett need role models. “It’s more people my age,” he said. “We need more participants. That’s what’s lacking. The question is who is going to take the reins? “Change starts with you.” Pietrantonio, worked in technology sales for about 10 years but he is now connected to the youth of Everett, coaching football as an assistant at Everett High School under Robert DiLoreto. He also teaches as a permanent substitute at the school. One thing that’s needed in Everett, Pietrantonio said, is a facility akin to a youth center or a Boys & Girls Club. He would like to see a central gathering facility created that fosters both sports and the arts. “ That’s what I’ve been preaching,” he said. “I don’t think we’re doing enough. That (could) play a big role. There’s nothing for kids to do in the city.” Pietrantonio’s ties to Everett include his parents, a brother and sister and he is father to his 3-year-old daughter. The family has long had a footprint in Everett, including owning McCormack’s Liquors on Hancock Street. “Everett is a special place,” he said. “I just want to see it get back to where it was 15 to 20 years ago. Everett has a special place in my heart.” Providing role models Pietrantonio said Everett is facing a problem with too few mentors and too few role models; something that can be partially fi xed by The Lettermen. “I think that’s significantly lacking now,” he said. “Giving back matters. Giving back feeds my soul.” Pietrantonio said he wants to strengthen the role the family plays in raising kids in Everett. But he said the eff ort should take some time. EVERETT MAN | SEE PAGE 20

THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, JUNE 24, 2022 Page 9 Mayor attends event to support FORWARD Bill Special to Th e Advocate M ayor Carlo DeMaria recently showed his support at an event for the new FORWARD bill that Governor Charlie Baker filed that will impact Everett residents. An Act Investing in Future Opportunities for Resiliency, Workforce, and Revitalized Downtowns (the FORWARD bill) will make $3.5 billion in investments in all cities and towns across Massachusetts and also strengthen state infrastructure and create jobs. Mayor DeMaria said this funding will create many possibilities that the city of Everett and its residents deserve. The largest possibility the funding will create is constructing the Mystic River Bicycle and Pedestrian Bridge project that will better connect Everett and Somerville by creating another option for traveling over the river. “It will provide a safe and equitable transportation network that supports Everett’s, Somerville’s, and the Commonwealth’s commitment to multi-modal transportaEverett Mayor Carlo DeMaria met with Somerville Mayor Katjana Ballantyne, State Senator Pat Jehlen and State Representatives Joe McGonagle, Mike Connolly and Erika Uyterhoeven to express their support for the FORWARD bill. tion options, economic development, climate, and public health goals,” said DeMaria. Four of the fi ve communities along the Northern Strand Community Trail, which has one end near the proposed Bridge site, are Gateway Cities — cities that lie just outside major tourist attractions — and all the communities, as well as Somerville, are Environmental Justice communities. “The Mystic River Bridge project is an example of connecting communities through positive infrastructure that will build a better future for our respective and collective communities,” said DeMaria. Mayor DeMaria said he is excited about the possibilities this funding, if passed, will bring to his hometown. He hopes that favorable action will be taken on this proposed bill: “There are few opportunities that present the chance for state and local leaders to come together and pave the way forward in ways that have the potential to help all residents. This is one of those moments, which is why I am looking forward to favorable action on this bill.”

Page 10 THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, JUNE 24, 2022 City of Everett celebrates Juneteenth with City Hall fl ag raising Special to Th e Advocate M ayor Carlo DeMaria and the City of Everett recently celebrated Juneteenth by raising the Juneteenth flag at City Hall. Juneteenth is a recently recognized federal holiday in the United States due to President Joe Biden making it official in 2021. However, this holiday was commonly celebrated by African Americans long before it was recognized by the United States. Juneteenth is recognized on June 19 because on that date in 1865 federal troops and Union Army General Gordon Granger arrived in Galveston, Texas, and he issued a general order to inform Texans that “all slaves are free” and to enforce the Emancipation Proclamation issued by President Abraham Lincoln on January 1, 1863. Mayor DeMaria said it’s important for the community to celebrate milestones and events that are significant in the cultures that are shared by Everett residents. “Juneteenth is meant to be a celebration,” said DeMaria. “It is the oldest nationally celebrated commemoration of the ending of slavery in the United States and marks an important milestone in our nation’s history.” Mayor DeMaria also said that work still needs to be done to achieve a truly free and equitable society. “While we no longer see visible chains to hold people back, we know that barriers do still exist,” said DeMayor Carlo DeMaria welcomed attendees at the Juneteenth event.

The City of Everett’s Executive Manager of Constituency Services, Mirlande Felissaint, educated all who were in attendance by reading “Why We Celebrate Juneteenth” by Dr. Charles Taylor. Nicole McClain, president of the North Shore Juneteenth Association, Inc., talked about the history of Juneteenth and how work still needs to be done to achieve true equality. Antoinette Octave Blanchard, the City of Everett’s Health and Human Services Equity Access Offi cer, had the audience join her in an opening prayer. Big Brotha Sadi gave a tremendous performance.

THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, JUNE 24, 2022 Page 11 MBTA weekday subway, commuter train service trips slashed for summer as of this week Thousands of Everett, Malden, Revere, Saugus residents will see longer commute times Staffi ng shortages, federal safety compliance cited; new fare programs with decreased costs also announced By Steve Freker T housands of area residents this week began to feel the eff ect of dramatic service time changes for subway trains implemented by the MBTA in response to federal safety compliance regulations. Beginning Monday, citing staffi ng shortages and continued lower ridership levels that never returned to pre-pandemic numbers, the MBTA cut service trips on the Orange, Blue and Red lines — aff ecting estimated 200,000-plus riders each weekday. Thousands — or even tens of thousands— of residents in this region including Everett, Malden, Revere and Saugus — are expected to be aff ected by the cutback of the number of service trips and the subsequent increase of service time between trips. MBTA offi cials announced last week that downscaling the trip frequency across most of its main subway system for the summer was in response to a staffi ng shortage that federal regulators ruled as a safety risk for riders and workers The slashing of trip frequency is estimated to add 4-6 minutes of additional wait time to subway riders between trips, according to reports. For instance, it is estimated there are 6-7 minutes between trips on the most frequently used Orange Line at peak, weekday commuter times. That has now increased to 10-12 minutes per service trip — longer on the Blue and Red Lines — according to reports. There are two Orange Line stations in Malden, which ends the line in the northern sector, at Malden Center in the heart Malden Center Station is one of the busiest stations on the Orange Line.

Revere is the home of four Blue Line stops, including Suffolk Downs, Beachmont, Revere Beach and Wonderland from west to east. MBTA officials stated in a press release that the new summer subway schedule now in eff ect would essentially resemble a regular Saturday The Revere Wonderland Station on the Blue Line is one of many seeing new service time changes implemented by the MBTA. Courtesy Photo schedule. “On each of the three lines, the changes will effectively implement a Saturday schedule every weekday. The dramatic reshaping of the system, which is likely to slow down travel for the tens or even hundreds of thousands of commuters who use the trio of subway lines every weekday and create more crowded conditions on vehicles and platforms, will continue through the summer,” according to MBTA offi cials. According to reports the steps were taken because Federal Transit Administration inspectors stated in a public evaluation, “(The) MBTA has created a management process whereby OCC staff members are required to work MBTA | SEE PAGE 13

The new fitness court was constructed due to a collaboration between the City of Everett and National Fitness Campaign (NFC). The BCBSMA also dedicated funds for mural artwork to include as part of the equipment and site. Mayor DeMaria expressed his pride in the addition of the new fitness court. He said one of the many things the COVID-19 pandemic has taught everyone is the importance of maintaining health and well-being. “Because our residents are the heart of our community, we take very seriously our responsibility to support strong, healthy families,” said DeMaria. Mayor DeMaria said that he and his administration worked with the NFC to select a spot for the new fi tness court.

MBT, officials say one of them includes the one-day LinkPass being lowered from $12.75 to $11.

To simplify complexities in the T’s transfer policy, the transfer process will be standardized to allow all combinations of second transfers involving Buses, Express Bus Routes, and/or Subway, including Bus-Bus-Subway, Subway-Bus-Bus, and Express Bus-Express Bus. A major addition is a new seven day LinkPass for reduced fare riders. Aiming to increase equity by increasing the benefi ts of purchasing fares in bulk for Reduced Fare Riders, a seven-day LinkPass for reduced-fare riders will be available for $10, which breaks even after nine subway rides. This product is designed to meet the needs of individuals who might not have enough cash on-hand to afford a monthly pass, but who qualify for reduced fare programs. Also aimed at increasing equity by closing gaps in the T’s off ering of pass products for Reduced Fare Riders, monthly passes on commuter rail, ferry, and express bus will be made available. This update off ers passes for Reduced Fare Riders at approximately 50% of the full fare pass prices.

THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, JUNE 24, 2022 Page 15 cost of repairing roads has increased by up to 40 percent while the state has kept this funding fl at at $200 million for the past 11 years. (A “Yes” vote is for the bill.) Rep. Joseph McGonagle Yes 2924) House 126-29, Senate on a voice vote without a roll call, approved and sent to Gov. Baker a conference committee version of a bill making permanent the mail-in and early voting options used in Massachusetts in 2020 during the COVID-19 pandemic. The House and Senate had approved diff erent versions of the bill and a conference committee hammered out this compromise version which did not include the section allowing same day voter registration that was in the Senate version but not in the House one. The measure requires the secretary of state to send out mailin ballot applications, with return postage guaranteed, to registered voters before each presidential primary, state primary and biennial state election. It also allows registered voters to request a mail-in ballot for all elections in a single calendar year. Other provisions include reducing the registration blackout period from 20 days prior to an election to 10 days; electronic voting options for voters with disabilities and military service members; allowing a voter with disabilities to request accommodations including an accessible electronic ballot application, ballot and voter affi davit that can be submitted electronically; ensuring that non-felons who are incarcerated who are currently eligible to vote are provided with voting information and materials to exercise their right to vote; and requiring the secretary of state to conduct a comprehensive public awareness campaign to publicize the new voting and registration options. “I’m proud to see the [bill] pass in the House and make its way to the governor’s desk,” said Sen. Barry Finegold (D-Andover), Senate Chair of the Committee on Election Laws and the co-sponsor of the bill. “When more people participate in voting, democracy wins.” “I am concerned about the amount of money we are spending mailing out mailin ballot applications when there are plenty of ways a voter can request a mail-in ballot if they want one,” said Rep. Colleen Garry (D-Dracut), the only Democrat to vote against the measure. “I would rather see these funds go to something Sen. Sal DiDomenico Yes ELECTION LAW CHANGES (S more productive like free IDs so that everyone has an ID to vote, open bank accounts and get certain medications that require IDs. We are also putting a tremendous amount of work on our town clerks, especially in our smaller communities like in my district.” “We are thrilled that both the House and Senate have voted in support of the [bill],” said the group MassVOTE. “Even though this version of [the bill] does lack a provision we have long supported—Election Day Registration—we are very glad to see that popular pro-voter policies like mail-in voting, expanded early voting and jail-based voting are included, and will soon become law.” “As a general rule, we should be promoting voting in person - LEGAL NOTICE - and on Election Day,” said Paul Craney, spokesman for the Mass Fiscal Alliance. “Anytime a voter loses control of their ballot before it’s given to an election offi cial, it’s possible it could be lost BEACON | FROM PAGE 14 ADVERTISEMENT The Everett Housing Authority, the Awarding Authority, invites sealed bids from Contractors for the Generator Replacement project at the Glendale Towers Building, 667-2 for the Everett Housing Authority in Everett Massachusetts, in accordance with the documents prepared by Nangle Engineering Inc.

Page 16 THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, JUNE 24, 2022 or altered. The Postal Service cannot guarantee a 100 percent delivery rate.” (A “Yes” vote is for the bill. A “No” vote is against it.) Rep. Joseph McGonagle Yes COMPREHENSIVE BEHAVIORAL HEALTH PACKAGE (H 4879) House 155-0, approved a bill designed to make mental health care more accessible in the Bay State. Provisions include the implementation of the nationwide 988 hotline to access 24/7 suicide prevention and behavioral health crisis services; a public awareness campaign on the state’s red fl ag laws that limit access to guns for people at risk of hurting themselves or others; creation of online portals that provide access to real-time data on youth and adults seeking mental health and substance use services, including a function that allows health care providers to easily search and fi nd open beds; giving the state additional tools to enforce existing parity laws which are aimed at providing equal benefits for physical and mental health treatment; and requiring insurance coverage of critical behavioral health services. “Everyone deserves access to quality mental health services, yet far too many people face unnecessary barriers to care,” said Rep. Adrian Madaro (D-East Boston), House Chair of the Mental Health, Substance Use and Recovery Committee. “This bill reaffi rms the House’s commitment to increasing access to behavioral health care across Massachusetts. For too long, the healthcare system has not treated behavioral health as equal to physical health, creating obstacles in addressing the mental health crisis, which has only been exacerbated by the pandemic. That’s why this timely piece of legislation makes critical steps toward prioritizing mental health services for people across the commonwealth, including our youth who have been acutely aff ected, and those who face challenges in getting the care they need. These policies refl ect our strong belief that behavioral health care is essential.” “I’m proud of the legislation passed by the House today that builds on our long-standing efforts to advance important reforms and substantial investments that are aimed at improving our behavioral health care delivery system,” said Speaker of the House Ron Mariano (D-Quincy). “From addressing the behavioral health crisis that our young people are currently experiencing, to our eff orts to alleviate emergency department boarding, to provisions that will bring us closer to treating mental and physical health equally, this legislation will benefi t all residents in the commonwealth when accessing critical health care.” The Senate approved its own version of the bill in November. A House-Senate conference committee will likely hammer out a compromised version. (A “Yes” vote is for the bill.) Rep. Joseph McGonagle Yes ALSO UP ON BEACON HILL THE STATE OF MASSACHUSETTS HEALTHCARE – Massachusetts’ health care system is ailing in the lingering aftermath of the COVID-19 crisis. Hospitals are suff ering severe fi nancial losses, putting smaller providers in peril as the larger players look to expand and consolidate. Behavioral health has become an acute priority in a system with limited capacity. Join the State House News Service and MASSterList for an in-person convening of government and industry leaders on the challenges and opportunities within the commonwealth’s health care system on Tuesday, June 28 at the Massachusetts Continuing Legal Education (MCLE) at 10 Winter Place in Boston.

This will allow consumers to buy most products that cost under $2,500 on those two days without paying the state’s 6.25 percent sales tax. This annual sales-tax-free weekend was made permanent in 2018 and gives the Legislature the authority to set the dates by June 15 each year. Supporters of the holiday say it has been in eff ect for many years, would boost retail sales and noted that consumers would save millions of dollars. They argue that the state’s sales tax revenue loss would be off set by increased revenue from the meals and gas tax revenue generated by shoppers on those two days. Opponents of the bill say the state cannot aff ord the up to $30 million estimated revenue loss and argued the holiday actually generates little additional revenue for stores because consumers typically buy the products even without the tax-free days. They say that the Legislature should be looking at broader, deeper tax relief for individuals and businesses and not a tiny tax-free holiday. BORROW $5 BILLION FOR STATE PROJECTS (S 2920) – The Senate approved, on a voice vote without a roll call vote, a $5 billion bond bill that borrows money for hundreds of construction projects—the majority involving maintenance and modernization projects of buildings related to health care, higher education, information technology, workforce development, the environment and affordable housing. Many of the buildings are decades old. The Senate added millions of dollars during consideration of the package. A key provision imposes a five-year moratorium on any prison or jail construction in Massachusetts. “We need a fi ve-year pause on new jail and prison construction and prison expansion to ensure that the pathways away from incarceration for women and for men, pathways that the House and Senate helped create, are being justly used and often used, “said Sen. Jo Comerford (D-Northampton). “These investments will kickstart important projects related to buildings, infrastructure, pollution mitigation, broadband services and more, providing incalculable benefi ts to the residents of Massachusetts,” said Senate President Karen Spilka (D-Ashland). “Today’s passage of the [bill] will support a strong future for our commonwealth through critical infrastructure and information technology investments in areas like public higher education, cybersecurity, state building decarbonization and much more,” said Sen. Michael Rodrigues (D -Westport), Chair of the Senate Committee on Ways and Means. “This legislation represents the Senate’s commitment to ensuring that our commonwealth’s institutions are modernized while continuing to responsibly steward our state’s fi scal health and strengthening our reputation as a good place to do business.” said Sen. Nick Collins (D-Boston), Senate Chair of the Committee on Bonding, Capital Expenditures and State Assets. There were 174 amendments filed by members, many of which were off ered by legislators for projects in their own district. Members pitched their amendments behind closed doors. In the end, there was debate on only a few individual amendments while most were bundled into two mega-consolidated amendments and approved or rejected on a voice BEACON | SEE PAGE 17 by Jim Miller Is Skin Cancer Hereditary? Dear Savvy Senior, Is skin cancer hereditary? My 63-year-old brother died of melanoma last year, and I’m wondering if I’m at higher risk. Younger Sister Dear Younger, While long-term sun exposure and sunburns are the biggest risk factors for melanoma – the deadliest form of skin cancer – having a sibling or parent with melanoma does indeed increase your risk, according to the Skin Cancer Foundation. Each year, around 100,000 Americans are diagnosed with melanoma, and about 7,500 people will die from it. While anyone can get it, those most often diagnosed are Caucasians, age 50 and older. And those with the highest risk are people with red or blond hair, blue or green eyes, fair skin, freckles, moles, a family history of skin cancer and those who had blistering sunburns in their youth. Skin Exams The best way you can guard against melanoma and other skin cancers (basal and squamous cell carcinomas) is to protect yourself from the sun, and if you’re over age 50, get a full-body skin exam done by a dermatologist every year, especially if you’re high risk. Self-examinations done every month or so is also a smart way to detect early problems. Using mirrors, check the front and backside of your entire body, including the tops and undersides of your arms and hands, between your toes and the soles of your feet, your neck, scalp and buttocks. Be on the lookout for new growths, moles that have changed, or sores that don’t heal, and follow the ABCDE rule when examining suspicious moles. Asymmetry: One half of a mole doesn’t match the other. Border: The border is blurred or ragged. Color: The mole has uneven colors, often shades of brown, tan or black, with patches of pink, red, white or blue. Diameter: The lesion is new or at least a quarter inch in diameter. Evolving: The mole is changing in size, shape or color. For more self-examination tips and actual pictures of what to look for, see SpotSkinCancer.org or use a skin cancer detection app like Miiskin. com, MoleMapper.org or SkinVision.com. In the spring and summer, there are also a variety of places that off er free skin cancer screenings, like the American Academy of Dermatology (spotskincancer.org) and the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (asds.net/ skincancerscreening.aspx), which off er screenings done by volunteer dermatologists across the U.S. Sun Protection Even though you can’t change your skin or family history, there are some proven strategies that can help you protect yourself. For starters, when you go outside put-on broad-spectrum SPF 30, water-resistant sunscreen on both sunny and cloudy days. If you don’t like the rub-on lotions, try the continuous spray-on sunscreens which are easier to apply and re-apply and less messy. Also, seek the shade when rays are most intense – between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. You can also protect your skin by wearing a widebrimmed hat, and long sleeves and pants when possible. The best clothing options are tightly woven fabrics that help prevent the sun’s rays from reaching your skin, or you can wash in an invisible shield sun protection into your clothes with SunGuard laundry additive (see sunguarduv.com). You can even buy a variety of lightweight clothing and hats that off er maximum UV protection in their fabric. Coolibar.com and SunPrecautions. com are two good sites that off er these products. Treatments If caught early, melanoma is nearly 100 percent curable. But if it’s not, the cancer can advance and spread to other parts of the body where it becomes hard to treat and can be fatal. Standard early treatment for melanoma is surgical removal. In advanced cases, however, immunotherapies and targeted therapies have shown positive results, or chemotherapy and radiation may be used.

The House passed its own version of the package on May 19. A House-Senate conference committee will likely hammer out a compromise version that will then be sent to the governor. ALLOW DRIVER’S LICENSE FOR UNDOCUMENTED/ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS (H 4805) – The House and Senate held a ceremonial bill signing for legislation that would allow, starting July 1, 2023, undocumented/illegal immigrants to apply for a Massachusetts standard driver’s license. The governor had vetoed the bill and the House and Senate overrode the veto—making it impossible to hold a signing of the bill by the governor. The legislation requires an applicant “without legal presence” in the United States to provide the Registry of Motor Vehicles (RMV) with a foreign passport and at least one of fi ve other documents: a driver’s license from another state, a foreign driver’s license, a birth certifi - cate, a foreign national identifi cation card or a marriage certifi cate or divorce decree from any U.S. state. “I cannot sign this legislation because it requires the Registry of Motor Vehicles to issue state credentials to people without the ability to verify their identity,” Baker had said in his veto message. “The Registry does not have the expertise or ability to verify the validity of many types of documents from other countries. The bill also fails to include any measures to distinguish standard Massachusetts driver’s licenses issued to persons who demonstrate lawful presence from those who don’t.” “[This] is a piece of legislation I have been proud to colead on since I fi rst entered the Senate,” said Sen. Adam Gomez (D-Springfi eld). “As a proud Puerto Rican … and the state senator for a district that is rich in diversity, I know that this bill will benefi t generations of families across the commonwealth. Our state is rich in culture and has a deep-rooted sense of community. The Senate further affi rmed their commitment to protecting all families, regardless of status, by overriding the governor’s veto of this bill and enacting it into law.” “We are a nation of immigrants, and our commonwealth continues to be profoundly and positively shaped by immigrants from all over the world,” said Senate President Karen Spilka (D-Ashland). “They deserve to be able to safely get to work and school, care for their families and participate in the lives of their communities. I am thrilled that the Legislature has voted to override Gov. Baker’s veto on this measure, which supports families, improves public safety and is good for our economy.” In the meantime, “Fair and Secure Massachusetts,” a group attempting to repeal the new law, is collecting signatures to put the issue on the November state ballot to let voters decide whether to repeal the law or let it go into eff ect in July 2023. To get the question on the ballot, supporters must collect 40,120 signatures by August 24. SEXUAL ASSAULT UNDER FALSE MEDICAL REPRESENTATION (H 1661) – The House approved and sent to the Senate a bill that makes it a criminal offense when a medical or healthcare professional induces a patient to engage in sexual intercourse or touching by falsely representing that the act is necessary for a legitimate medical purpose. The measure adds sections to the existing rape and indecent assault and battery statutes to criminalize behavior by medical professionals where there has been a fraudulent representation of the necessity and propriety of conduct and adds these crimes to the law on the statute of limitations for other sexual assaults. Supporters said that under existing law the off ender cannot be criminally punished. “I am pleased that my colleagues in the House voted to pass [the bill] as it will establish protections for vulnerable patients and criminalize medical or healthcare professionals who knowingly and falsely claim sexual contact for a medical purpose,” said sponsor Rep. Kate Hogan (D-Stow). “This legislation provides necessary updates to Massachusetts’ sexual assault laws.” MASSACHUSETTS COALITION OF POLICE (H 2163) – The House gave initial approval to a measure that would allow members of the Massachusetts Coalition of Police to be paid when attending executive board meetings of their group without having to use accrued time off for their absence. Supporters said that current law allows for members of the Massachusetts Police Association, a fraternal organization, to be excused from duty while attending executive board meetings. “The Massachusetts Coalition of Police is the largest police union in the commonwealth,” said sponsor Rep. Jessica Giannino (D-Revere). “Currently, [its] executive board members must use accrued time off from their departments to attend executive board meetings. This bill aff ords the same courtesy as those in other organizations in being excused from duty to conduct this important business.” QUOTABLE QUOTES “The Senate stands in recess subject to the call of the chair. We’ll come back when we feel like it.” ---Sen. William Brownsberger (D-Belmont) adding a little humor to the Senate session. “The gang’s all here.” ---Gov. Baker upon the arrival of his counterparts Senate President Karen Spilka and House Speaker Ron Mariano for a joint press conference with reporters. “Logan is one of the nation’s busiest airports and its workers provide invaluable assistance in order to get passengers where they need to be. Raising the minimum wage is a victory for these workers and one they very much deserve. This decision is not only a step in the right direction for the airport but for the community as a whole.” --- Massport Board Member John Nucci on Massport’s hiking of the minimum wage for certain Massport workers from $15 to $16 on July 1, 2022, and then to $17 on January 1, 2023. “As we enter summer with drought conditions across much of the commonwealth, we ask residents to follow any local water restrictions, minimize water usage and be cautious when using charcoal grills, matches, fire pits and other open fl ames. [We] will continue to work with our partners and the inter-agency Drought Mission Group to coordinate the response to the drought conditions.” --- Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency (MEMA) Acting Director Dawn Brantley.

Part of the work to be done will include the solicitation of donations from business leaders. “I’m not afraid to ask for money and ask for their time,” Pietrantonio said. “We want (The Lettermen) to be a positive infl uence of giving back. Everything is not going to be handed to you. You have to work for it.” Another piece of the puzzle includes improving voter participation, Pietrantonio said, adding of the approximately 22,000 registered voters in Everett, only 3,000 and 4,000 show up to vote. “I think there’s a real disconnect with the way the community has changed,” he said. “With the old Everett, no one wants to change. But SELLER1 Duong, Hai Yang, Hong the city has changed. I don’t think we’ve caught up with the changes.” But the right candidates must be chosen for available municipal seats in Everett, Pietrantonio said. “It’s been a popularity contest, as far as who gets in,” he said. “Why don’t we take a step back and really get to know the participants for who they are?” While he lost out on his bid to earn a seat on the city council, Pietrantonio still believes in his old campaign slogan — “Change starts with you.” “I think you can follow that with anything in life,” he said. “I believe that 100 percent.

People under 25 act like they are not getting older. As they get closer to 30, they fi ght and cry while trying to deny that they are getting old. After 30 or so, we are resigned to facing the future with ever increasing dread. After 40, it is all downhill. And some of that trip downhill is likely to involve falling (particularly for people who are over 55). If you do not care about this article, you will eventually. (And it will be easier to read this now, when your eyes are young, than when you get older.) And if you are old enough for this article to be immediately useful, then you already bought in. Falls are one of the more common, if underappreciated, problems faced by seniors. As people get older, they are more likely to fall and more likely to be injured in a fall (including fractures, bruising and head injuries). The best way to deal with falls is to avoid them by improving your balance. (In case it needs to be pointed out, if Sam Amado you are planning to use these exercises, you might have some diffi culty with balance. If possible, do not use these exercises when you are alone.
