He also expressed his continued gratitude not only for the city’s veterans, but for the police offi cers and fi refi ghters as well. “It means a lot to me that you put yourself in harm’s way for the rest of us,” he said. “This country is the best country in the world. I feel that way every day.” Although there have been discussions about removing the stadium, DeMaria said the World War II Monument in front of the stadium is not going anywhere. “This plaza will always remain here,” he said. Daniel Magoon, executive director of Massachusetts Fallen Heroes, said he noticed the American fl ags on many of the light poles around the city. “It’s nice to be in a city that values its veterans,” he said. “The wars that we fought 20 years ago are already starting to be forgotten.” Veterans Commissioner Jeanne Cristiano said DeMaria has always gone above and beyond for the city’s veterans. “The mayor has been consistent in making sure the VetMAYOR | SEE PAGE 2 E Friday, August 13, 2021 Mayor honored by Mass.

Cristiano said that on several occasions DeMaria has made even greater eff orts to honor Brienza. While it is a great honor to have family members in the military, no one is ever fully prepared to learn that their loved one is not coming home. “I can tell you, no one wants to be a Gold Star Family,” said Cristiano.

THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, AUGUST 13, 2021 Page 3 ~ OP-ED ~ Governor Baker’s visit is another big win for city By Deanna Deveney W hile Governor Charlie Baker’s visit to Everett earlier this month was partially to tout the state’s Commonwealth Builder Initiative, we view it as another victory in Mayor DeMaria’s quest to provide affordable housing opportunities to all Everett residents. As Baker and other state officials toured the St. Therese property, it was evident that they were impressed with the progress and scope of the project. The Mayor is proud to be able to transform this once-prominent community gathering place into a space that will continue to serve the needs of Everett. As one of the first projects to be part of the Commonwealth Builder Initiative, the city will once again become a model for neighboring communities, leading the way to make real change in the racial wealth gap and the ability to own a home in a gateway community like Everett. Even before the pandemic, the lack of housing opportunities, particularly affordable ones, was a real challenge in Everett, but the pandemic only amplified the need for more housing and further highlighted the racial and wealth disparities in the city. As The Neighborhood Developers Director of Real Estate Development Steve Laferriere stated at the press conference, the St. Therese project is a “small step towards dismantling the racial wealth gap by offering families the opportunity to become homeowners. At the same time, we are also ensuring seniors can afford to age in place here.” Another innovative aspect to the St. Therese project is the addition of the East Boston Neighborhood Health Center, which will provide all-inclusive care to for the elderly, servicing not just those who live there, but all senior residents of Everett. As EBNHC CEO Manny Lopes said, bringing services to where people live is crucial to the future of health care delivery and to serving our most vulnerable population, which was again underscored by the global pandemic. The St. Therese project broke ground in late 2020 and is slated to be completed in 2022, with applications opening as early as spring of 2022. For continued updates on the project, visit https://theneighborhooddevelopers.org/ st-therese. With the additional funding proposed by the Baker-Polito administration and their focus on connecting more families with homeownership opportunities and the chance to build long-term wealth, we sincerely believe that the St. Therese project will be the first of many groundbreakings in affordable housing developments here in Everett.

Middle school students pitch product ideas in Junior Shark Tank By Christopher Roberson A group of Everett students in grades six through eight recently had the opportunity to create and market products to a panel of industry professionals during the district’s Junior Shark Tank program. Cory McCarthy, chief equity officer of the Everett Public Schools, said the district had been working with the 3Point Foundation since November 2020 to develop the Junior Shark Tank. “These kids didn’t know what they were getting into,” said McCarthy. The students met for five weeks, Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. During that time, McCarthy said, they fused technology with social-emotional learning to develop products such as the Protective Sleeve, the Perfect Cap and the Ideal Backpack. From there, they were tasked with pitching their ideas to a panel of five sharks, including Michael Cunningham and Moses Adubi of Optum Ventures, a private equity and venture capital firm in Boston. “These were real sharks,” said McCarthy. However, the students did not falter and delivered their presentations with the utmost confidence. “These are 10-, 11- and 12-year-olds talking about profit gain,” said McCarthy. “One kid asked for $500K; he wasn’t playing around at all.” Looking ahead, McCarthy said the students will continue to refine their work with the possibility of receiving real monetary investments from the shark panel. “I’m very happy with what we were able to do,” he said. “We’re going to work on a year-long progression of this.” School Committee Chairman Frank Parker shared his thoughts on the program. “It’s a perfect storm of marketing, STEM and financial SCHOOL | SEE PAGE 21

Page 4 THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, AUGUST 13, 2021 Wayfinding Signs coming to Everett M ayor Carlo DeMaria recently announced that the City of Everett, in collaboration with TransitMatters, is implementing Wayfinding Signs throughout the city around the Broadway corridor. “Wayfinding Signs is making non-automobile transportation easier in the City of Everett,” said DeMaria. “Implementing these signs is an excellent way to assist our residents in navigating the community. I am grateful to TransitMatters for their hard work on this initiative.” The Wayfinding Signs are part of Everett’s Reimagine Broadway initiative. These signs provide direction and guidance to landmarks throughout the city. They can be read at the human scale, meaning that a person can view them not only while driving, but also while walking and biking around. These signs are another way to help encourage sharing our streets and promote Everett as a walkable community. TransitMatters has worked with local community organizations – including the Everett Haitian Community Center, La Comunidad and Everett Community Growers – to ensure that these signs would be inclusive to all community members. Through collaboration, these organizations were able to provide suggested locations and key resources that they felt would accommodate the residents. The signs are translated into different languages, including Spanish, Portuguese and Haitian Creole, to be able to improve their reach among the community. Additionally, these signs include symbols to accommodate those who do not have advanced literacy skills. TransitMatters worked closely with Ad Hoc Industries and FJ Albano to produce the signs. Ad Hoc Industries chose the design and coloring of the signs to ensure that they would stand out to those who passed by and become recognizable in the community. The city is grateful for the collaborative efforts of TransitMatters, Reimagine Broadway, local businesses and community organizations. The guidance of the Wayfinding Signs will allow residents to travel throughout the city with ease.

THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, AUGUST 13, 2021 Page 5 City dedicates corner of Pearl and Main Streets to Navy veteran By Christopher Roberson T he intersection of Pearl Street and Main Street was recently renamed in memory of U.S. Navy Seaman First Class Joseph Cardello. “Today is a testament to this favorite son of Everett,” said Mayor Carlo DeMaria during the August 4 ceremony. “He will always be an American hero.” DeMaria said Cardello was born at 21 Pearl St. in September 1926 and was one of four children. Cardello then went on to graduate from Everett High School in 1944. “Almost immediately upon graduation, he joined the United States Navy,” said DeMaria. Cardello served his country in World War II and was honorably discharged in June 1946. During his time in the Navy, Cardello received the American Campaign Medal, the Asiatic–Pacific Campaign Medal and the World War II Victory Medal. After returning home to Everett, Cardello went to work for the family business, Cardello’s Oil Delivery Company. In addition to delivering oil during the day, Cardello took night classes in health sciences at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. In 1953, Cardello met his future wife Catherine at a wedding where he was an usher and she was a bridesmaid. “That must have been a fun wedding,” said DeMaria. After they were married, the Cardellos moved to Belmont Street, where they raised their three sons, Robert, Richard and Paul. Cardello took a job as a public health inspector for the city, a position he would maintain for 34 years. In 1956, he was elected to represent Ward 5 on the Common Council. During his three In addition to hosting a memorial golf tournament for 15 years, Robert said, one of his family’s greatest accomplishments was establishing a scholarship in his father’s name at Everett High School. “The scholarship at Everett High is tremendous; we’ve been there for about 25 years now,” said Robert, adding that the value of the scholarship has grown to $176,000. “It’s a good thing.” Veterans Commissioner Jeanne Cristiano Mayor Carlo DeMaria Robert Cardello, the son of Navy Seaman First Class Joseph Cardello, delivered his remarks during the ceremony held on August 4 to dedicate the intersection of Pearl Street and Main Street in his father’s name.

MSO welcomes interns from the Middlesex County District Attorney’s Office B ILLERICA – The Middlesex Sheriff’s Office (MSO) recently welcomed interns from the Middlesex County District Attorney’s Office for a pair of tours at the Middlesex Jail & House of Correction. “The relationship between our office and the district attorney’s is crucial to maintaining and enhancing public safety,” said Middlesex Sheriff Peter Koutoujian. “Providing these interns a first-hand look at the programs and services we provide those in our custody will better prepare them should they choose careers as prosecutors here in Middlesex County. I want to thank District Attorney Marian Ryan and her team for the opportunity to talk about the incredible work our team of dedicated corrections professionals does on a daily basis.” Two groups visited the facility over the course of two days, with interns learning about legal access; video court proceedings; medical, mental health and substance abuse treatment; specialty programs like the Housing Unit for Military Veterans; and the women’s prerelease program that was launched earlier this year. “Each year our interns participate in a robust program to maximize their education about all aspects of the District Attorney’s Office,” said Ryan. “Our partnership with the Middlesex Sheriff’s Office is a critical component of that training. In Middlesex County we are lucky to have many innovative prevention and treatment programs that help rehabilitate those in the criminal system and reduce recidivism. The work we do alongside Sheriff Koutoujian helps us to look at the whole person to ensure our system is not solely punitive. It adds a tremendous value to our intern program to allow these students to see some of that work first-hand.” Nick Mazzie kicks off for Central Catholic. (Courtesy photo)

Page 10 THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, AUGUST 13, 2021 Malden River continues to struggle while Mystic River continues to flourish T By Christopher Roberson he latest Water Quality and Compliance Report on the Mystic River Watershed gave the Mystic River a grade of B+ while the Malden River lagged behind with a grade of C-. According to the report, which was issued by the federal Environmental Protection Agency, a C+ is the highest grade the Malden River has received since 2014. In contrast, the seven-mile Mystic River received an A- every year from 2015 to 2019. Patrick Herron, executive director of the Mystic River Watershed Association (MyRWA), said the Mystic Lakes, which feed the Mystic River, have very low levels of Enterococcus and Escherichia coli. Therefore, the Mystic River has remained fairly clean in recent years and is safe for swimming. “Even when tributaries have poor water quality, this very clean water will dilute those pollutants,” said Herron. “The good news is that the Mystic, like each of the three great rivers of Boston Harbor, is a relatively clean urban river. This represents a great success story of the Clean Water Act and its 50year history of improving environmental and even economic conditions.” Although the Mystic River grade fell from an A- in 2019 to a B+ in 2020, Herron does not see it as a cause for concern. “When the grade changes just by a single step it is likely to be random,” he said. “We would take notice if there is a trend across multiple years or a severe change from A- to B- for example.” Unlike the Mystic River, the two-mile Malden River does not originate from a clean water reservoir and is constantly plagued by stormwater runoff and decaying underground infrastructure. “The Malden River has continued to struggle as there has not been a mandate to correct these infrastructure problems that contribute to the problem,” said Herron. “Quite frankly, while municipalities make annual investments in their infrastructure, they spend less than what is required to address the problems.” Therefore, the Malden River is not safe for swimming at this time. “Based on our data, you would be much more likely to get a gastrointestinal illness swimming at the Malden River than at a place like Shannon Beach on Upper Mystic Lake or even at Constitution Beach in East Boston,” said Herron. However, a turnaround is still possible as communities are now required to find the cause of water quality problems and develop ways to rectify them. “We work with municipalities to site, design and construct green infrastructure to reduce stormwater runoff,” said Herron. “On the Malden River, we have been working with the Friends of the Malden River on a litter reduction program.” Herron also said neither river has undergone any major changes in the past five years. “These are water bodies that provide significant value for the ecosystem but are also tremendous resources for paddling and rowing,” he said. However, Herron said MyRWA’s efforts remain ongoing. “We have significant work and investments to make to reduce nutrient and bacteria inputs to these rivers and make them healthy every day,” he said.

Page 18 THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, AUGUST 13, 2021 GREATER BOSTON LEAGUE NOTEBOOK: Young local baseball standouts show their stuff MHS junior Cohen and Class of ’24 players excel at Futures Day at Lynn Invitational; EHS sophs shine in tourney; RHS Patriots Football players, coaches set to go By Jason Mazzilli I t has been a busy summer for everyone on the local sports scene, especially for a number of young local baseball standouts who have spent some quality time showing their stuff at local events in front of college coaches. One of the top pitchers in the region is Malden High School (MHS) Class of 2022 righthander Shai Cohen. Cohen, a 6-1, 185 Golden Tornadoes hurler, already impressed at the recent Bay State Games for the Metro Team, his second year performing in that statewide showcase for underclassmen. There was no Bay State Games event held last summer due to COVID-19, but it came back this year with a few safety restrictions still in place. Cohen first drew some attention in 2019 as a freshman in the Bay State Games, where he competed along with former Tornado teammates Liam Jordan (Class of 2021) and Ezra Kruckenberg (Class of 2020). Last week, Cohen was a participant in another showcase event in front of college baseball coaches held locally at Pine Banks Park in Malden/Melrose, hosted by New England World Series (NEWS) and Lynn Invitational (lynninvitational.com). Cohen lit up the radar gun with a personal best 84 MPH for his fastball and also showed a variety of other pitches in a dominating performance. “It was one of the best days I have had a showcase event and I was excited to be able to perform in front of so many college coaches,” said Cohen, who was named to the Greater Boston League (GBL) All-Star Team along with teammates Jordan, a senior, Sam Solorzano, a junior, and sophomore Brandon McMahon, who was named to the GBL All-Conference Team. MHS Class of 2024 players Cogswell, Noelsaint and Simpson excel at Futures Day The “Future” is looking bright these days for Malden High baseball! A trio of up-and-comers in the Malden High baseball program, all members of the Class of 2024, took part on Monday at historic Fraser Field in Lynn in “Futures Day,” which was hosted by the Lynn Invitational Tournament. Infielder/Outfielder Ryan Cogswell, infielder/pitcher Jake Simpson and outfielder Zeke Noelsaint all participated in the event, along with close to 40 other top members of the Classes of 2024 and 2025. All three more than held their own at Futures Day, as each Malden High player registered at least one base hit (Cogswell was 2-for-3) and all three scored a run. Cogswell and Noelsaint both stole a base and all three looked solid in the field, defensively. Medford High’s Joey D’Orazio, Class of 2024, a catcher, also participated from the GBL. Malden High Baseball Head Coach Steve Freker was on hand for the event and said he was impressed with the trio’s performance. “I will not say I was surprised that Ryan [Cogswell], Jake [Simpson] and Zeke [Noelsaint] did so well,” Coach Freker said. “They are all hard workers and have exceptional talent. All three of them saw a lot of time at the varsity level this past spring, despite being freshmen, and they contributed to our successful season.” The Malden coach noted that Simpson and Noelsaint each earned starting roles in five games each this past spring, where Malden went 6-9 overall and also competed in the MIAA Division 1 State Baseball Tournament for the first time since the 2013 season. “It was great to see these young “YOUR FINANCIAL FOCUS” JOSEPH D. CATALDO Net Operating Loss Carryback Rules By Joseph D. Cataldo as a result of the CARES Act. The CARES Act provides for a T he Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act (the CARES Act) was enacted on March 27, 2000. Net operating loss (NOL) rules were changed temporary five-year NOL carryback for most taxpayers, which might entitle many taxpayers to significant refunds. The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) of 2017 replayers compete against some of the best players their own age from the region,” Coach Freker said. “Our Malden guys did great and they are part of an excellent class overall. We have a lot of talented guys coming back next spring and we will hopefully make some noise in the GBL.” The Malden coach made a note of the work the Golden Tornadoes coaching staff overall have done the past several years in developing some of these young players and working to put Malden High baseball on the map. “Phil Cook and Shawn Nice did a tremendous job with the Middle School Baseball Team in the 2019 Fall Season and now they have dual roles with that team this coming Fall and with the Varsity and Sub varsity season next spring. We are lucky at Malden High to have those guys working with our players,” he said. RHS Patriots Football ready to go for 2021-22 season; open Sept. 17 at GBL rival Chelsea The cup continues to be full for the Revere High School (RHS) Patriots football program and Head Coach Lou Cicatelli as they prepare for their first full season in the GBL. Coach Cicatelli may most likely boast the largest numbers of preseason football signups of all the teams in the GBL, with over 80 players from grades 9-12 expected at Della Russo Stadium when camp opens next week. The veteran Patriots football boss says that his troops are primed and ready to go for a productive preparation for a solid season in the GBL. Revere got its first taste of GBL action with a 3-1 foray this past spring in an abbreviated COVID season, finishing with a flourish in a 48-24 victory over Medford in the finale, after reEverett Class of 2023 players Omar Marshall and Justin Longmore excelled for Apex Baseball, which won the 2021 New England World Series 15U Championship.

Revere opens up for real on Friday, Sept. 17 on the road at GBLer Chelsea at 6:00 p.m. Revere is at Medford on September 24, at Lynn English on October 1 and then hosts GBLer Malden in its home opener on Friday, October 8. Revere stays home with an October 15 game with GBL’s Everett and is home again on October 22 with league opponent Somerville. Revere concludes the pre-playoff schedule on the road at Lynn Classical on October 29, and after three playoff weeks has a traditional Thanksgiving matchup at home versus Winthrop on November 25 at Della Russo Stadium at 10:00 a.m. EHS sophomores Marshall and Longmore help lead Apex Baseball to New England World Series title Apex Baseball, a 15U travel baseball team from this region, won its first-ever tournament championship recently, and a pair of Everett High sophomores played key roles. Outfielder Omar Marshall and catcher Justin Longmore were some of the top performers for the Apex Team, which is coached by Gary Meskell, who is also an assistant coach with Somerville High baseball. Apex won the 15U Championship Title in the first New England World Series (NEWS) Tournament, which was held at local parks recently. Both Marshall and Longmore, who will be juniors for Coach Joel Levine’s Crimson Tide baseball squad next spring in 2022, were also members of the Pilots team in Malden Babe Ruth this season, which won the regular season pennant with a first-place finish. The Flames won the Malden Babe Ruth League City Series title. The two Apex/Pilots 15 year olds are expected to be key contributors to Everett baseball next spring. A team of Malden players coached by Phil Cook and Shawn Nice competed in the 14U bracket of the NEWS Tournament. pealed the carryback of NOLs. However, it allowed taxpayers to carry forward NOLs indefinitely. It also limited the NOL deduction to 80% of taxable income. Before the enactment of TCJA, taxpayers could carry back NOLs for two years and carry forward NOLs for 20 years, and could offset up to 100% of taxable income in each year. The CARES Act provides that NOLs incurred in 2018, 2019 and 2020 may be carried back to offset taxable income earned during the fiveyear period prior to the year in which the NOL was incurred.

The CARES Act allows taxpayers whose business is typically profi table but as a result of the Coronavirus the business suffered an operating loss to be able to carry back the calendar year 2020 NOL up to fi ve years in order to recover income taxes paid during those fi ve years. Losses incurred during tax years prior to January 1, 2018, may be carried forward to tax years beginning after December 31, 2020, without being subject to the 80% limitation. After 2020, the NOL deduction, in any given year, will be limited to 80% of taxable income. For a corporation being able to carry back a 2020 operating loss up to fi ve years will allow for the recovery of taxes paid in those prior years when the corporate income tax rate was at 35% as opposed to the current 21%. This creates even more value to the NOL carryback deduction. It is worth reviewing the 2020 tax returns for both individuals, corporations and partnerships to determine if amending a prior tax return in order to take advantage of a NOL carryback deduction makes sense. It may be that carrying the NOL forward is more advantageous as well as more practical.
