THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 10, 2021 Page 3 Sarah O’Toole takes the helm at Everett branch of Members Plus By Christopher Roberson W ith Century Bank in the process of merging with Eastern Bank, Sarah O’Toole decided to make the move to Members Plus Credit Union after 25 years with Century. “It was a really hard decision,” she said. Although Eastern had offered her a position, O’Toole knew that a smaller financial institution would be the better choice – Members Plus was the answer. “I loved the intimacy of a small, local organization,” she said. In addition to becoming the manager of the Everett branch last month, O’Toole has been a customer at Members Plus for the past 10 years. She has also admired the commitment that the credit union has to the city, citing the donation of 50 backpacks to the Parlin School and being involved in the annual Everett Kiwanis Golf Tournament. O’Toole said that on one occasion John Murphy, the president and CEO of Members Plus, visited the Everett branch to address an issue with the elevator. While there, he also helped a customer at the drive-thru window and assisted O’Toole with balancing the branch’s ATM. “They value teamwork from the very top,” she said. O’Toole said she got her start in banking in 1996 as a parttime teller at Century’s Cambridge branch. “I needed a job with flexibility so I chose banking,” she said, adding that she was raising her two daughters at the time. “I really enjoyed getting to know people and finding out what their needs were.” From there, O’Toole worked her way up the ranks and became the branch manager in 2006, a position she would hold for the next 15 years. O’Toole said being a manager afforded her the opportunity to spend more time with customers to determine the exact service that was needed. Councillor DiPierro announces Ward 3 Celebrity Bartending event Y ou might have heard that the award-winning Everett Crimson Tide Marching Band has been invited to perform at the 80th commemoration event of Pearl Harbor in Hawaii this December. Fundraising efforts have been well underway throughout the community all summer long. To compliment those efforts, Ward 3 Councillor Anthony DiPierro, School Committee Chair Frank Parker and Councillors-at-Large Richard Dell Isola and Michael Marchese will be cohosting a Ward 3 Celebrity Bartending event on Sunday, September 12 from 2-6 p.m. at Stewart’s Pub on Elm Street. The four will be taking turns behind the bar and hope to draw a good crowd for a day that promises to be full of fun and camaraderie for a good cause. The event marks the fourth Celebrity Bartending event hosted by the Ward 3 group. In years past, they have raised more than $8,000 for the youths of the Devens School to fund field trips and other activities. They would like to thank proprietor Anne Stewart for her continued community support, by once again offering her establishment to benefit the students of Everett. If you are unable to attend, but would still like to donate, checks can be made payable and sent to “Everett Public Schools – Music Dept.”, Attn: Penny Yebba, 100 Elm St., Everett, MA 02149. Sarah O’Toole recently took over as the manager of Members Plus Credit Union on Broadway. (Advocate Photo by Christopher Roberson) “I loved building relationships with people and being able to help them,” she said. She recalled one instance when a gentleman came in to apply for an auto loan. However, a loan was not possible at that time as his credit score was too low. In response, O’Toole signed him up for a secure credit card, and over time that customer was able to restore his credit and purchase a car. O’Toole also helped a young couple get their first mortgage and has helped numerous children open their first savings account. “It’s actually pretty awesome,” she said.

EVAP was created through the innovation of former Mayor David Ragucci and former Police Chief James Rogers, who partnered with Portal To Hope (PTH) 23 years ago to ensure increased support to people whose lives have been impacted by domestic violence crime. Over the years, the program has continued to receive signifi cant support via Everett city government and the Human Services Department, and with the added leadership of Police Chief Steven Mazzie, EVAP serves as a community staple and leader in the cause to end domestic violence. “Our partnership with the City of Everett has helped to reduce recidivism of domestic violence crime over the years,” said PTH Founder Deborah Fallon. “Everett was the best place to initiate this specifi c type of program, which now serves as a model for other communities and states to adopt, and that Pictured from left to right: Portal To Hope Victim Advocates Jen Battelle, Marni Gallagher and Rothsaida Sylvaince are pictured with EPD Captain Paul Landry and EPD Offi cer Nicole O’Donnell and Medford Police Detective Brooke Stanton-Hurd.

EVAP and PTH have experienced increased calls for crisis intervention services over the last 18 months since the onset of the pandemic. “We didn't even have to ask for the help,” said Fallon. “Mayor DeMaria and his team had the forethought to just keep us connected to resources in order that we could continue our direct care work and meet the increased demand for serOPEN HOUSE Saturday, Sept. 11th 11:00 am - 1:00 pm CLASSES OFFERED FOR FALL SEASON HIP HOP | BREAKDANCING MUSIC & DANCE APPRECIATION | SALSA CONTEMPORARY | SOUTHERN SWAG | DANCEHALL TAP | BABY BALLET | LITE FEET 1886 Revere Beach Parkway (above Popeyes & Dunkin Donuts) in Everett 617-389-9111 / For more information, email LILPHUNK2@AOL.COM vices.

THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 10, 2021 Page 7 Everett woman charged with assaulting Pennsylvania police offi cer By Christopher Roberson A naise Lopez, 28, of Everett, is facing charges of assault and harassment after she allegedly kicked Officer Clint Gardner of the Williamsport Police Department outside a Pennsylvania convenience store. Gardner said he saw Lopez and an unidentifi ed male get out of a black Nissan Altima and go into the store on August 31. Upon further inspection, Gardner reportedly found evidence of marijuana. “I immediately detected the odor of marijuana emitting from the vehicle,” he said. “I observed, in plain view, a marijuana joint and marijuana fl akes in the vehicle.” Gardner said the male suspect was compliant during questioning; however, Lopez quickly became confrontational. Other offi cers arrived on the scene to assist Gardner a short time later. Although Lopez initially allowed police to search the vehicle, she allegedly withdrew her consent when she was asked to show her identifi cation. The situation continued to escalate as police attempted to take Lopez into custody. As the confrontation continued, Lopez reportedly kicked Gardner twice, striking his hand and elbow. In addition, she allegedly began yelling racial slurs at the other offi cers. Lopez was ultimately apprehended and held on a $25,000 bail, which she posted on September 1. Lopez has been charged with second degree aggravated assault, second degree simple assault and harassment. Under Pennsylvania law, Lopez could face up to 13 years in prison and up to $32,500 in fi nes. She was scheduled to appear in court for a preliminary hearing on September 9.

Our parks and recreational spaces are an important part of our city and I look forward to meeting with the residents of this community to learn more about their thoughts.” During the past few weeks, residents have expressed their unhappiness with both Hale Park and Central Avenue Park.

He said Brazil’s struggle for independence began when the Peninsula War broke out in Portugal in 1808. At the time, King Shown from left to right are Ward 2 Councillor Stephanie Martins, Ward 5 School Committee Member Marcony Almeida-Barros, Mayor Carlo DeMaria, the Consul General of Brazil in Boston, Ambassador Benedicto Fonseca, Brazilian Women’s Group Executive Director Heloisa Maria Galvão and State Representative Joseph McGonagle.

When the king returned to Portugal in 1821, his son, Pedro I, remained in Brazil and declared the counGrooversity founder Marcus Santos and members of the Grooversity global drumming network try independent from Portugal the following year. DeMaria also praised Everett’s Brazilian residents, many of whom own businesses in the city. “They keep our downtown and community vibrant,” he said. State Representative Joseph McGonagle said the Brazilian community continues to make Everett a better place to live. Like DeMaria, McGonagle also spoke highly of the city’s Brazilian business owners who found a way to keep their establishments alive despite the onslaught of the COVID-19 pandemic. “Everett’s Brazilian community is great in numbers and great in passion,” he said. “I am always amazed by their drive and tenacity to succeed.” Ward 5 School Committee Member Marcony Almeida-Barros said Brazilian businesses can be found along Broadway, Elm Street, Ferry Street and Main Street. “We are literally everywhere,” he said. Almeida-Barros also said he is the first Brazilian to serve on the School Committee and that Portuguese has become the second most common language in the Everett Public Schools. Ward 2 Councillor Stephanie Martins said COVID-19 had claimed 589,914 lives in Brazil as of September 5. “Many hospitals have collapsed, run out of beds and even oxygen,” she said. However, Martins said the Brazilian people remain steadfast even as the virus continues to rage. “No matter what happens, our people carry the spirit of happiness,” she said.

Page 10 THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 10, 2021 AG Healey secures $27M from subprime auto lender for thousands of consumers I n the largest settlement of its kind, national subprime auto lender Credit Acceptance Corporation (CAC) will pay more than $27 million to settle a lawsuit brought by Attorney General Maura Healey over a variety of alleged unfair practices relating to the company’s role in the origination, collection and securitization of subprime auto loans. The settlement, which was recently filed in Suffolk Superior Court, requires CAC to pay a total of $27.2 million, and provide debt relief and credit repair to thousands of Massachusetts borrowers. More than 3,000 borrowers across the state are expected to be eligible for settlement funds, including many residents of marginalized communities in Springfield, Boston, Worcester, and Brockton. The settlement also requires CAC to make changes to its loan handling practices. “Thousands of Massachusetts consumers, many of them first-time car buyers, put their faith in CAC to help them with an auto loan, but were instead lured into high-cost loans, fell deeper in debt, and even lost their vehicles,” said Healey. “With this significant $27 million settlement, eligible Massachusetts drivers who have been suffering under the weight of a crushing car loan due to CAC’s deceptive practices will be able to receive relief and avoid new defaults. Predatory car loans, like predatory student loans or mortgages, hurt families and communities. Through our ongoing, extensive investigation into the subprime auto industry, we have a proven record of taking action and getting results for our residents who have been exploited by unscrupulous lenders.” The AG’s Office sued CAC in August 2020 over the company’s practices relating to the origination, collection, and securitization of subprime auto loans. Specifically, the lawsuit alleged that CAC made high-interest subprime auto loans that it knew or should AG HEALEY | SEE PAGE 13

Districts that partner with City Year see better student outcomes. We are thrilled to be able to launch this partnership in all of our K-8 schools simultaneously.” School Committee Chairman Frank Parker suggested making a push to bolster alumni relations, adding that the district has produced a myriad of graduates who have gone on to become successful professionals. Founded in 1988, City Year now has more than 3,000 members serving in 29 cities throughout the country. In terms of monetary value, a study conducted by Deloitte Consulting showed that a partnership with City Year is 78 percent more cost-effective than working with individual providers. Afterschool programming In other news, the committee voted unanimously to sign a contract to have AlphaBEST Education as the district’s new afterschool provider. The committee also voted unanimously to send out a Request For Proposals (RFP) for supplemental afterschool programming. However, Mayor Carlo DeMaria was concerned that a supplemental provider would offer some of the same services as AlphaBEST. In response, Parker emphasized that supplemental programming would not be limited to AlphaBEST students. “This is for all students, not just students who are part of the AlphaBEST program,” he said, adding that no agreements have been made with a supplemental provider. “It’s an RFP only at this point; it’s not an authorization to engage.” Grant update Speaking about the district’s grant funding, Tahiliani said that in Fiscal Year 2020-2021 the district received 31 grants totaling $9.4 million. In contrast, 21 grants totaling $6.5 million were awarded in Fiscal Year 2019-2020. “Our grant planning is deliberate and intentional,” she said. COVID-19 uptick Tahiliani also called attention to the increase in COVID-19 cases for the 0-19 age group. Recent data showed 49 cases were reported in August compared to seven cases in July and four cases in June. So far this month, 15 cases of the virus have been reported in the 0-19 age bracket. Nine new hires In addition, Tahiliani introduced nine individuals who recently joined the Everett Public Schools. Dr. Andrea Tringale is the vice principal at Everett High School; Dr. Brittany Puleo is the assistant principal at the Devens School; Nerecesa Pires is the second assistant principal at the Keverian School and James Murphy is the assistant principal at the Parlin School. On the district level, Patrick Quigley is the Social Emotional Learning and Wellness Manager; Brittany Hay is the EL director; Genevieve McDonough is the K-8 ELA director; Rupinderpal Kaur McGillin is the K-8 STEM director and Amanda Hoover is the supplemental services manager.

The AG’s lawsuit noted that while the company profited from these loans, borrowers experienced credit harm, and, in some instances, lost their vehicles or down payments. The complaint also alleged that some CAC borrowers were subject to hidden finance charges, which resulted in violations of the state’s 21 percent usury cap and that CAC engaged in unlawful collection practices. The AG’s lawsuit also contained allegations that CAC failed to inform investors that it topped off securitization loan pools with higher-risk loans. The AG’s action against CAC is part of her Office’s ongoing industry-wide review of securitization practices in the subprime auto loan market.

Page 14 THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 10, 2021 ridden unanimously. The vetoes had no support Beacon Hill Roll Call By Bob Katzen THE HOUSE AND SENATE: There were no roll calls in the House or Senate last week. This week, Beacon Hill Roll Call reports on the number of times in the 2021 session each senator sided with Republican Gov. Charlie Baker and voted to sustain the governor’s 15 vetoes of items, mostly in the fiscal 2022 state budget. A vote to sustain means the senator supports Baker’s veto. A vote to override means the senator voted to fund the item despite the governor’s veto. The current makeup of the Senate is 37 Democrats and three Republicans. A two-thirds vote is required to override a gubernatorial veto in a full 40-member Senate when there are no vacancies. The governor needed the support of 14 senators to sustain a veto if all 40 senators voted—and fewer votes if some members were absent or there were vacancies. Baker fell far short of that goal as six votes was the most support he received on any veto. The Senate easily overrode all 15 vetoes, including three that were overfrom 30 of the 37 Democrats who never once voted to sustain Baker’s veto. Only seven Democratic senators voted to sustain any of the governor’s vetoes. The Democrat who voted the most times with Baker to sustain his veto is Sen. Walter Timilty (D-Milton) who voted with Baker twice. Sens.

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 August 30-September 3, the House and Senate each met for a total of 25 minutes. Mon. Aug. 30 House 11:00 a.m. to 11:04 a.m. Senate 11:04 a.m. to 11:11 a.m. Tues.

THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 10, 2021 Page 15 ~ Greater Boston League Notebook ~ EHS Football opens season tonight on road vs. #3 Xaverian; RHS Patriots Football opens regular season at home tonight hosting Peabody; MHS Football builds up numbers, eyes season/home opener on Sept. 16 vs. Whittier By Steve Freker I t’s a tall order and a top-shelf test, but second-year head coach Rob DiLoreto would not have it any other way. The long-awaited 2021 season opener for the Everett High School football team is tonight on the road at #3-ranked Xaverian High School in Westwood. It’s a 7:00 p.m. kickoff for the Crimson Tide. Tonight’s game will be the marquee game of the weekend as Everett is also highly ranked, at #4 in the Globe Top 20 Poll. Xaverian won the Catholic Conference title in undefeated fashion in the shortened Fall 2 season this past spring and returns many of the players from that team. Four of Xaverian’s top players – Joe Kelcourse and Michael Oates, both running backs, and split end Carlo Crocetti as well as safety Anthony Busa – were included on the Herald’s “players to watch list.” Everett is led by seniors Ishmael Zamor (split end) and Jaylen Murphy (offensive line) along with senior lineman Jaylen Biggi and running back J.C. Clerveaux. Interestingly, this will be Everett’s lone 7 p.m. kickoff of the regular season. It appears that the Greater Boston League (GBL) has moved its Friday night starting times back to 6 p.m. for all league games. **** Everett’s football schedule a lot different than in past, due to enlarged GBL For the first time in many years, Everett’s schedule, aside from tonight’s season opener, looks a lot different. Gone are the multiple marquee matchups with some of the top schools around the region. There’s a very good reason for that: There’s just no room! Due to the increase in size in the GBL, which now features eight teams, the space for non-league games has shrunk considerably. Starting next week with a home game versus GBLer Somerville on Friday, Sept. 17 at 6:00 p.m., it will be all-GBL games for Everett until Thanksgiving, when it begins a brand-new holiday rivalry, hosting Catholic Conference team St. John’s Shrewsbury at 10:00 a.m. on Thanksgiving morning. **** Revere opens tonight at home versus nonleaguer Peabody Head Coach Lou Cicatelli and the Revere High Patriots open the 2021 season tonight versus a longtime rival – which is now situated in a different league. The Patriots will take on Northeastern Conference member Peabody tonight at Harry Della Russo Stadium with a 7:00 p.m. kickoff. This will be the first game of the first official “full” GBL schedule for Revere, which joined the GBL officially in 2020. Revere Football’s four captains EHS Crimson Tide Offensive linemen, kneeling from left to right: Syeed Gibbs, Sebastian Bryan and Moses Seide; standing from left to right: Fabieri Fabert, Darryl Monvil, Ismael Zamor, “Cam” Mohamed, Matheus Merino and Brian Gibbs. are Augusto Goncalves, Elmahdi Elkeaouakibi and Wilmer Rodriguez, who are all seniors, and Max Doucette, a junior. Revere is coming off a torrid stretch where the Patriots have won 10 of their last 13 games over the 2019 full season and the Fall 2 season, which was played this past spring. **** Coach Exilhomme welcomes growing numbers as MHS football eyes Sept. 16 season opener First-year Malden High School head football coach Witche Exilhomme knew he would have to spend time “marketing” his Golden Tornado program within the walls of the school, and so far it is paying dividends. Coach Exilhomme said he is pleased with the growing numbers of MHS football players who have signed on since the start of preseason camp. “We need numbers to provide depth, and we need depth to create competition among ourselves for the top positions,” Coach Exilhomme said. “When you have a lot of competition, it makes for a more productive practice, and that is how we improve as a team.” Malden has a scheduled “bye” along with a number of other Eastern Mass. schools. The Tornado boys are eyeing a season opener set for next Thursday, Sept. 16 at Macdonald Stadium in Malden. The Golden Tornado squad will host Whittier Tech at 6:00 p.m. that night. “We have been working hard and doing a lot of teaching as coaches,” Coach Exilhomme said. “We will be ready for our opponent on Opening Night.” Talking to loved ones about life insurance September is Life Insurance Awareness Month T he COVID-19 pandemic changed consumer perceptions about life insurance. And with September being Life Insurance Awareness Month, it serves as a time to help consumers understand the importance of life insurance and how it can help protect a family’s financial future. According to the Life Insurance Marketing and Research Association, seven in 10 Americans agree that the pandemic has been a wakeup call to reevaluate their long-term financial goals, which may include life insurance. “The pandemic jolted consumers awake to the crucial importance of life insurance,” said AIG Life & Retirement’s President of US Life Insurance, Timothy Heslin. “By including life insurance as part of a holistic financial plan, individuals and families can begin to prepare for the unexpected, today and in the future.” How do you start the conversation? Having a conversation about life insurance with a loved one can seem unsettling or morbid, but it does not need to be. AIG Life & Retirement offers tips to help get the conversation started: • Find the right opportunity: Major life events, such as marriage, having a child or buying a home, present an appropriate opportunity to start a conversation. • Set aside dedicated time: The topic of life insurance isn’t something to bring up lightly, like in the car on the way to the grocery store. Set aside dedicated time when both you and your loved one are at home and relaxed. • Do your homework: Do some online research or speak with a licensed life insurance representative who can provide information on the different types of life insurance. • Approach it as a financial plan: Rather than making it about death, frame the conversation around protecting the family financially if one of your paychecks was to suddenly stop. If you already have life insurance, Heslin says, “Life Insurance Awareness Month is a reminder to reevaluate your policy, because changing circumstances may lead to different insurance needs.” EHS Crimson Tide Defensive Linemen, kneeling from left to right: Jareid Celestin, Karily Petion, Brian Gibbs, Richard Diaz and Johey Jacques; standing from left to right: Richard Malloy, JJ Costa, Darrion Green and Jayden Clerveaux.

Page 26 THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 10, 2021 State health officials announce two new human cases of West Nile virus T he state Department of Public Health (DPH) recently announced two new human cases of West Nile virus (WNV) in the state this year. Both individuals are male, one in his 50s and the other in his 70s, and both were exposed to WNV in Middlesex County. On September 1, DPH announced that the first human case of WNV identified in Massachusetts this year was likely exposed in Middlesex County. The Greater Boston area and several towns in Bristol and Worcester counties are at moderate risk for WNV. There have been no deaths this year associated with WNV. Based on the human cases, recent increases in WNV findings in mosquitoes, and weather favorable for mosquito activity, the WNV risk level of an additional 38 communities is being raised from low to moderate. These communities are Beverly, Danvers, Lynn, Marblehead, Middleton, Nahant, Peabody, Salem, Saugus, Swampscott and Wenham in Essex County; Agawam, Chicopee, East Longmeadow, Longmeadow, Springfield and West Springfield in Hampden County; Bedford, Billerica, Burlington, Carlisle, Lexington, Lincoln, Natick, North Reading, Reading, Sudbury, Wayland, Weston and Wilmington in Middlesex County; Dedham, Needham and Wellesley in Norfolk County; Chelsea, Revere and Winthrop in Suffolk County; and Grafton and Upton in Worcester County. “These are the second and third human cases of West Nile virus infection in Massachusetts this year and we are seeing significant expansion of virus activity in mosquitoes,” said Acting Public Health Commissioner Margret Cooke. “Risk from West Nile virus will continue until the first hard frost. As we enjoy the unofficial last weekend of summer and then head back to school and work, it is important for people to remember to continue to take steps to avoid mosquito bites.” In 2020, there were five human cases of WNV infection identified in Massachusetts. WNV is usually transmitted to humans through the bite of an infected mosquito. While WNV can infect people of all ages, people over the age of 50 are at higher risk for severe disease. Most people infected with WNV will have no symptoms. When present, WNV symptoms tend to include fever and flu-like illness. In rare cases, more severe illness can occur. People have an important role to play in protecting themselves and their loved ones from illnesses caused by mosquitoes. Avoid mosquito bites Apply insect repellent when outdoors. Use a repellent with DEET, permethrin, picaridin, oil of lemon eucalyptus or IR3535 according to the product label. DEET products should not be used on infants under two months of age and should be used in concentrations of 30 percent or less on older children. Oil of lemon eucalyptus should not be used on children under three years of age. Be aware of peak mosquito Tomatina Buñol in Spain? 8.
