Therefore, the Kiwanis Club together with city offi cials believed it would only be fi tting to hold a 5K walk in her memory. “We felt in our hearts that we wanted to do something,” said Kiwanis Club Secretary Marlene Zizza. “She was such an enormous part of the community.” Zizza said having a walk was the better option as opposed to a road race as a walk would maximize the number of participants. Kiwanis Club Member Tucker Fiorentino remembered Matarazzo as a “loving and caring person.” “She was a very sweet lady, she always had a smile,” he said. “When I think about it, I just get overwhelmed.” Matarazzo was also a second cousin to Mayor Carlo DeMaria. “We all knew Ersilia … as Shown from left to right are Kiwanis Club Member Tucker Fiorentino, Kiwanis Club Secretary Marlene Zizza and Ersilia Cataldo Matarazzo’s sisters Giuseppina Cerasuolo, Adriana Carbo, Erminia Buscaino and Gina Maniscalco.

The victim, identifi ed as Jarrod Harris, was leaving Karma Lounge at 355 Ferry St. when he became involved in a physical confrontation with a number of individuals outside the bar. “Multiple shots were fired and the victim was struck,” according to a statement from the Middlesex County District Attorney’s Offi ce. According to police, a suspect, Charles Demos, 29, of Rochester, N.H., allegedly shot Harris twice and fl ed the scene. Bystanders who witnessed the shooting attempted to provide first aid until paramedics arrived. However, the Harris was later pronounced dead at Massachusetts General Hospital. On September 22, Demos was located in Seabrook, N.H., and was taken into custody in connection with the shooting. He has been charged with murder and the unlawful possession of a fi rearm. David Landry, 30, of Everett, was also arrested and charged with assault with a dangerous weapon, assault and battery as well as possession of a fi rearm without a license. Landry was arraigned in Malden District Court and is due back in court on October 1. No additional information is available as the investigation is still ongoing. Yellow police lines crisscrossed the sidewalk on Ferry Street in the area where 42-year-old Jarrod Harris was fatally shot last Saturday after leaving Karma Lounge. (Advocate Photos by Mike Layhe)

THE EVERETT ADVOCATE–Friday, September 27, 2019 Page 5 Displaced by construction, rats invade residential properties By Christopher Roberson T he increase in construction projects around the city has caused rats to vacate the network of underground pipes and relocate to residents’ yards, thus triggering calls to city officials to get rid of the critters. However, Inspectional Services Director James Soper said he is not alarmed by the number of rat sightings, which always climbs during construction. “We haven’t seen a spike; we have no evidence of a spike,” he said. Soper said every contractor is required to purchase traps and send the proof of purchase to his office. He also said it is relatively simple to pinpoint where the rats are located, particularly around major traffic arteries. “They’re not going to cross Revere Beach Parkway; they want to stay safe,” he said. In addition, Soper said flyers explaining how to keep rats away have been distributed to homes on Cottage Street as well as between Ferry Street and Florence Street and Summer Street and Union Street. “People are responsible for baiting their own properties,” he said, adding that homes that are not owner-occupied tend to have the greatest risk. According to the Centers for Disease Control, rats have been known to carry diseases such as Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome, salmonella, leptospirosis and tularemia. During a recent City Council meeting, Councillor-at-Large Peter Napolitano said the rats have been a growing problem and that sending out flyers is no longer sufficient. “Something more needs to be done,” said Napolitano. “You come to my house and I’ll show you a city barrel that the rats gnawed through.” Councillor-at-Large Wayne Matewsky said there have been rat sightings on Bolster Street, Paris Street, Elsie Street, George Street and Elm Street. However, Matewsky said he is confident that Soper has the problem under control. In addition, Jeffrey Weisberg of A1 Exterminators said the Norway rat is the “dominant rat” in the Northeast. He said females typically have “four to eight” litters per year with “eight to 12” pups in each litter. Weisberg also said that rats are naturally timid of anything new in their environment – including traps. “They can avoid traps for days and sometimes weeks,” he said. Speaking about a rat’s physical abilities, Weisberg said they can swim up to a half mile, jump three feet and even survive a 50-foot fall. He also said rats only need a halfinch opening to enter a home, adding that their bite exerts four tons of pressure per square inch.

State awards Everett $825K Community Development Block Grant E By Christopher Roberson verett was recently chosen as one of 63 communities to receive a Community Development Block Grant from the Massachusetts Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD). The grant, which totals $825,000, will provide funding for aff ordable senior housing and social service programs. In addition, $467,258 will be used to fund the 77 senior housing units at St. Therese Church. Another $137,000 is earmarked for after school programing, homeless prevention, elder services, nutrition assistance and adult education services including English as a second language for work force development. “I want to thank our federal and state delegation and the Baker Administration for these funds,” Mayor Carlo DeMaria said in a written statement. “These funds represent a life line to those most in need in our community. This year, we are dedicating a majority of these monies to keep our long term residents here. The St. Theresa’s project will provide 77 units of aff ordable housing for our seniors. Additional funds will also be used for youth services, homeless prevention, and senior services. In Everett, we take care of our own and I am most proud of helping those who need our help the most.” The grant stems from a $34 million push from the DHCD to “support a variety of housing, community and economic development projects in 63 cities and towns across the Commonwealth.” All told, that money will assist in revamping 230 housing units as well as provide funding for 12 food pantries and 19 infrastructure improvement projects. During the past four years, 180 communities have received $144 million in Community Development Block Grants.

THE EVERETT ADVOCATE–Friday, September 27, 2019 Page 11 Everett field hockey battles to 0-0 tie By Greg Phipps E verett High School field hockey head coach Melissa O’Donnell said her team has been battling hard despite not having earned its fi rst victory of 2019, at least as of early this week. The Crimson Tide made the lengthy trip to face the Rockport Vikings on Monday and came away with a scoreless tie. “We have a lot of seniors and a couple of juniors this year. We’re hanging in there and we’ve been competitive,” O'Donnell observed prior to Monday’s contest. “We’re getting a lot of unfortunate bounces that haven’t gone our way. We’ve got a pretty good team, and I think if we start getting more favorable bounces we’ll get some wins.” Monday’s 0-0 deadlock against the Vikings left Everett at 0-41 through its fi rst fi ve contests. The defense on both sides was strong. Rockport seemed to have the better scoring opportunities in the fi rst half, as goalie Elizabeth Peach was called upon to make some key saves. Peach also received solid defensive help from Anne Naceus, Ernestine Brice and Ashley Yebba. The Tide will try to get in the win column when they host Lowell on Friday and travel to take on Lawrence on Monday.

Everett is now ranked fifth in Eastern Massachusetts and has won two straight after dropping the season opener at home. St. John’s is also a Top-10 ranked team in Central Mass. despite having opened with two losses. The first of those was to Catholic Memorial, which is ranked first in Eastern Mass. Last Friday’s contest was a close back-and-forth affair as St. John’s took the lead, 27-26, with less than five minutes left in the Tide sophomore RB Jaden Clerveaux gets a hug from sophomore WD Ismael Zamor (3) while celebrating The Tide’s go ahead score last Friday. contest. A 15-yard touchdown run from Clerveaux with 2:22 to go turned out to be the winning points for Everett. The Pioneers The defensive play of the game against St. John’s (Shrewsbury) as Tide sophomore defensive end Jalen Murphy forces intentional grounding. (Advocate Photos by Mike Kearney) had an ensuing fourth downand-one situation in the waning moments. But the Tide defense stepped up and stopped them to come away with the win. In all, the Everett offense piled up a total of 538 yards. Doherty accounted for 400 of those with 22 pass completions for 308 yards and 92 yards rushing on 15 attempts. He also ran for a 48yard score, threw for a score and was intercepted once. Doherty connected with receiver Clarence Jules on a 65-yard scoring play that gave the Tide a 20-14 lead at the half. Clerveaux amassed 101 Sophomore running back Jaden Clerveaux turns on the jets for the winning Tide score. yards on 15 carries. He produced three TDs, including the game-winner. Doherty told the press afterwards that the game was “like a boxing match. You can’t get punched in the mouth and not come back at them. So we fought hard, and we fought back and won.” Everett jumped out to an early 13-0 lead before the Pioneers responded by scoring twice and pulling ahead, 14-13. The Tide was in front, 26-21, before St. John’s retook the lead with a TD in the fourth quarter. Everett tallied twice in the final six minutes to erase two one-point deficits in the second half. Improving to 2-1 with the victory, the Crimson Tide move on to host Brockton on Saturday (scheduled 1 p.m. kickoff) at Veterans Memorial Stadium. The Boxers (1-2) have lost two straight after winning their season opener. Tide junior wide receiver Tyrese Baptiste runs for a huge gain to set up the winning touchdown. Tide quarterback Duke Doherty on a keeper play runs for a long yardage as senior linebacker Junior Pamphile (69) and Linebacker Ghustin Boyce clear the way.

Since its founding in 1996, Portal To Hope has helped more than 5,000 victims of domestic violence. (Advocate Photo by Christopher Roberson) “This project is right on the bus line, the Bluebikes are there and the green ones, too.” Small cell antennas The City Council also heard a presentation from Rosanna Ferrante, representing Extent, LLC regarding a request to install small cell antennas at 10 locations around the city. They include three locations on Broadway and four locations on Ferry Street as well as one location on Union Street, Chelsea Street and Main Street. Ferrante said this would be the first wave of what would be a total of 41 small cell antennas to bolster service for T-Mobile users. “It really is a network plan,” she said, adding that the antennas comply with federal regulations. However, Ward 5 Councillor Rosa DiFlorio said the matter needs to be vetted by one of the City Council’s committees. “We have committees for a reason,” she said. DiFlorio also wanted to know how much radiation Fallon also spoke about the success of the Everett Victim Advocacy Project, which was formed two years later. “It is an award-winning program that has served over 5,000 people since its inception in 1998,” she said. Fallon said Portal To Hope helped influence the passage of Sandy’s Law in 2010. Under this law, which was named in memory of Everett resident Sandy Berfield, criminal harassment is punishable by up to 10 years in prison. School Committee Member-at-Large Millie Cardello praised Fallon for staying the course. “You have forged ahead, you have stuck with it,” she said. “I have the utmost respect for everything you have done.” However, Fallon said more effort is needed to prevent domestic violence. “We have vigils every year; how many people turn out for those vigils – maybe 20,” said Fallon. “People forget about the victims of domestic violence. People are quick to reach out to us at times of tragedy.”

Todd O. Galarneau of Saugus is the new Senior Warden, and Stephen E. Bruce of Everett is the Junior Warden, the secondand third-ranked officers in the lodge. Brian E. Gregory of Wakefield was installed as Treasurer for the 2019-2020 year, and Thomas A. Lima, Jr. of Saugus, Past District Deputy Grand Master, was installed as Secretary. To provide continuity and stability in the Lodge, the Treasurer and Secretary often serve multiple one-year terms. The officers were elected during the Lodge’s regular meeting in June. The remaining offices, or “chairs,” of the Lodge were filled by the following: Kevin M. Wildman, Chaplain; Ralph E. Gibbs, Marshal; Richard E. Miller, Senior Deacon; Corey J. Phelps, Junior Deacon; Eduardo J. Sagarnaga, Senior Steward; John P. Montanus, Organist; James V. Virnelli, Sr., Tyler; and William J. Roberts, Electrician. William J. Boulay of Winthrop, Past Master of Palestine Lodge, Everett, which recently merged with William Sutton Lodge, and Alan R. Welch of Saugus, Past Master of William Sutton Lodge, performed the Installation. They were assisted by Amos F. Cutter, Jr., Past District Deputy Grand Master, who served as Chaplain for the ceremony, and Gregory A. Beamon, Past Grand Pursuivant, who served as Marshal. A member of the Scottish Rite and an active Shriner, John Cole joined Palestine Lodge in 2005 and served as its secretary for several years. In 2016, he was invited to serve in that capacity for William Sutton Lodge as well. In addition, he is presently serving for the second time as District Deputy Grand Secretary for the Fourth Masonic District. He is a past president of Everett Little League. He and his wife, Denise, have lived in Everett since 1982 and have just recently become first-time grandparents. William Sutton Lodge, which was established in 1867, meets on the third Thursday of each month, except July and August, in the First Congregational Church building (300 Central St. in Saugus).

THE EVERETT ADVOCATE–Friday, September 27, 2019 Page 23 Governor Baker Highlights Housing Choice Bill in Everett Local leaders endorse legislation that aims to support communities statewide in their goals to increase new housing production G overnor Charlie Baker, Secretary of Housing and Economic Development Mike Kennealy and Undersecretary of Housing and Community Development Janelle Chan joined Everett Mayor Carlo DeMaria, the Everett Legislative delegation, and local leaders yesterday to highlight An Act to Promote Housing Choices, legislation filed by Governor Baker in February that calls for targeted zoning reform to advance new housing production in Massachusetts and support the Administration’s goal to produce 135,000 new housing units by 2025. “Communities as diverse as Everett in Greater Boston and Williamstown in the Berkshires know that Massachusetts has a housing crisis, and the lack of affordable and available housing is a serious problem for the Commonwealth,” said Governor Charlie Baker. “We have filed An Act to Promote Housing Choices to jumpstart the construction of housing in every region of the Commonwealth by empowering communities to build the housing they need where they need it. We will continue to work with our legislative colleagues to swiftly take this crucial first step.” “While our economy continues to grow, too many families, businesses and communities continue to struggle with Massachusetts’ housing crisis,” said Lt. Governor Karyn Polito. “Governor Baker and I remain committed to leveraging every tool at our disposal to advance the production of housing across the Commonwealth, from funding affordable housing development to pursuing legislative reform through Housing Choice, so more communities like Everett can remain affordable to current and future residents.” Today’s event at The Pioneer celebrated Everett’s commitment to boosting the production of housing viable for a wide range of incomes, with a particular focus on transit-oriented development to leverage the City’s extensive bus network and close proximity to employers in both Everett and Boston. In 2016, Everett became the first community in the Commonwealth outside of Boston to add a dedicated bus lane, leading to a significant reduction in commute times. These efforts earned Everett designation as a Housing Choice community, in recognition for the city’s success in adopting best practices and increasing the housing stock by more than 3% over the last five years. Local community and business leaders including Antonio Amaya Iraheta of La Comunidad, a nonprofit organization supporting Everett’s Latin American community, Marjorie White, President of Everett Co-operative Bank, and Rafael Mares of The Neighborhood Developers, a Chelsea-based community development corporation leading the affordable housing development at St. Therese in Everett, joined Mayor DeMaria in endorsing the legislation. The legislative proposal will enable cities and towns to adopt certain zoning best practices related to housing production by a simple majority vote, rather than the current two-thirds supermajority. While this legislation will lower the voting threshold to change zoning for all communities in the Commonwealth, it does not require cities and towns to make any of these changes. With the proposed simple majority threshold, municipalities that pursue rezoning efforts including those enabling transit-oriented or downtown-oriented new housing, would gain approval if they achieve more than 50 percent of the vote, as opposed to the current super majority of more than 66 percent. Massachusetts is currently one of only a few states to require a supermajority to change local zoning. Zoning changes that promote best practices for housing growth that would qualify for the simple majority threshold include: Building mixed-use, multi-family, and starter homes, and adopting 40R “Smart Growth” zoning in town centers and near transit. Allowing the development of accessory dwelling units, or “in-law” apartments. Approving Smart Growth or Starter Homes districts that put housing near existing activity centers. Granting increased density through a special permit process. Allowing for the transfer of development rights and enacting natural resource protection zoning. Reducing parking requirements and dimensional requirements, such as minimum lot sizes. This legislation also includes a provision, added by the Joint Committee on Housing last session, that would reduce the voting threshold for a special permit issued by a local permit granting authority to a simple majority vote, for certain multi-family or mixed-use projects with at least 10 percent affordable units in locations near transit or, in centers of commercial activity within a municipality. “The housing crisis facing Massachusetts is the greatest threat to our economic success and it is especially acute in cities like Everett, which make up the inner core of Greater Boston,” said Secretary of Housing and Economic Development Mike Kennealy. “This administration is committed to confronting this crisis and will continue to work closely with our colleagues in the Legislature to pass Housing Choice, in order to empower communities to advance the housing production they need to grow and thrive far into the future.” Today’s show of support built on recent bipartisan endorsements from officials and organizations including former Secretaries of Economic Development from the Romney, Patrick, and Baker administrations. The bill was formally discussed at the May 14th hearing of the Joint Committee on Housing. The legislation is part of the administration’s Housing Choice Initiative, which provides incentives, technical assistance, and capital grant funding to encourage new housing production that meets the long-term needs of the Commonwealth’s growing, and aging, population. “Our families, seniors, workforce, individuals with disabilities, and vulnerable populations have diverse housing needs, and today’s market is not meeting them. Housing that our residents can afford is a crucial resource and An Act to Promote Housing Choices will create the tools we need to promote new housing development for those across incomes,” said Undersecretary of Housing and Community Development Janelle Chan. “We are proud of the coalition we’ve built in support of this legislation and the investments we’ve made in affordable housing, community development, and public housing to benefit the many communities that contribute to our strong, inclusive Commonwealth.” “People want to live in this great community and I am proud that here in Everett we have issued the third highest number of new multi-family housing permits in the Commonwealth, many of which are transit oriented developments. However, we must do more,” said Mayor Carlo DeMaria. “Governor Baker’s legislation will expedite the construction of ‘in-law’ apartments and accessory dwelling units, increase density through special permits and will cut parking and dimensional requirements. As a result, I believe we can substantially reduce the number of unsafe, overcrowded illegal units, by creating safe and affordable high quality housing for current and future residents.” “The Housing Choice Initiative is critical for our constituency in the city of Everett,” said Antonio Amaya Iraheta, Executive Director of La Comunidad. “Across the city there are a lot of illegal units. It is very dangerous living 2 or 3 families in one or two bedroom apartments. The Governor’s bill will bring a huge benefit and better condition of living, building more housing units in the City of Everett and across the state.” “While recent development in Everett has been impressive and provided increased housing for the community, too many opportunities have been missed due to outdated zoning provisions,” said President of Everett Co-Operative Bank Marjorie White. “Modification of local zoning ordinances has been a cumbersome and lengthy process. This legislation will enable local officials to assess their communities’ housing needs and enact responsible, thoughtful zoning changes to meet them.” “The need for more affordable housing in the Greater Boston area has reached drastic proportions. Zoning directly impacts how much housing is produced and in turn how much our region is paying for rent,” said Rafael Mares, Executive Director of The Neighborhood Developers. “The Governor's Housing Choice legislation will empower local leaders to develop better policies that will help people in our communities find the home they deserve.” “Housing security has long been a critical concern for Everett residents, and even more so today as our community continues to grow and evolve,” said Senator Sal DiDomenico. “I would like to thank Governor Baker and Lieutenant Governor Polito for making this a top priority issue for their Administration and committing to create more housing options for people of all incomes. I look forward to continue working together along with my legislative colleagues and municipal leaders to craft a bill that will adequately address our Commonwealth’s diverse housing needs.” The event also highlighted Everett’s recent Affordable Rental Housing Award, announced by Governor Baker in Swampscott this July. The award will fund the first of two phases to rehabilitate the former St. Therese Parish into two developments for low-income and formerly homeless seniors featuring onsite services. The Baker-Polito Administration has shown a deep commitment to increasing the production of housing across income levels. Since 2015, the administration has invested more than $1 billion in affordable housing, resulting in the production and preservation of more than 17,000 housing units, including 15,000 affordable units. In 2018, Governor Baker signed the largest housing bond bill in Massachusetts history, committing more than $1.8 billion to the future of affordable housing production and preservation. The Baker-Polito Administration has also advanced the development of more than 11,000 mixed-income housing units through the successful MassWorks Infrastructure Program, reformed the Housing Development Incentive Program, and worked with communities to implement smart-growth development and planning efforts.

THE EVERETT ADVOCATE–Friday, September 27, 2019 Page 25 a enioroioiavvy Senior avvy avyvy vy y enioornion rniiori Electric Bikes Are Booming Among Baby Boomers Dear Savvy Senior, What can you tell me about electric bicycles? A friend of mine, who’s almost 70, recently got one and absolutely loves it. He told me he rides more now than he ever did his regular bicycle. Interested Boomer Dear Interested, Electric bikes have become very popular among U.S. baby boomers over the past few years because they’re super fun to ride and easier on an aging body. Electric bikes, also known as e-bikes, are conventional bicycles with a battery-powered “pedal” or “throttle” assist. When you saddle up and push the pedals or throttle, a small motor engages and gives you a boost, so you can whiz up hills, ride into headwinds and cruise over challenging terrain without gassing yourself or taxing your knee joints. Many older e-bike owners say that they ride more frequently and go further and longer than they ever would with a traditional bike. Here’s what you should know about e-bikes, along with some tips to help you choose one. What to Know E-bikes are more complicated and expensive than regular bicycles, so you need to do some research before you purchase one. For starters, you need to know that there are three diff erent types of e-bikes to choose from: • Class 1: “Pedal-assist” electric bikes that only provides assistance when the rider is pedaling, and only up to 20 miles per hour. These are the most common type of electric bikes. • Class 2: “Throttle-assist” e-bikes that let you use the electric motor without pedaling, like a motorcycle or scooter, but only up to 20 miles per hour. • Class 3: “Speed pedal-assist” e-bikes, similar to Class 1, except that the motor will assist with bike speeds of up to 28 miles per hour. Because they’re electrically powered, states and local communities have varying regulations regarding the use of e-bikes. In many states, class one and two e-bikes are allowed to be ridden wherever a traditional bike goes, while class three are generally allowed on the street due to their higher top speed. For more information on your state’s e-bike laws, visit PeopleForBikes.org/e-bikes. You should also know that e-bikes come in many different styles – commuter, cruiser, mountain, road, folding, etc. – just like traditional bikes to meet diff erent riding needs. They also run on rechargeable lithium-ion batteries, and their motors are either hub-driven mounted on the front or rear wheel, or mid-drive motors that are mounted to the frame at the bottom bracket between the cranks. The only downsides of e-bikes are weight and cost. Because of the battery and motor, e-bikes are much heavier than traditional bicycles weighing 50-plus pounds, so it can be more challenging if you have to manually lift or maneuver your bike a lot. And e-bikes are expensive, typically range between $2,500 and $3,500. E-bikes are made by many of the same established companies that make traditional bikes like Specialized, Electra, Schwinn, Trek, Giant, Cannondale and Felt, along with a number of upstarts like Juiced Faraday, Pedego, Elby and Hi Bike. To shop for an e-bike, fi nd some good bike shops in your area that sell them so you can test ride a few. If you’re interested in a cheaper option, there are also e-bike kits you can purchase at places like Walmart, Amazon.com and eBikeKit.com that can convert your regular bike into an e-bike for a few hundred dollars.

Everett Community Art Walk to open on Oct. 1 M ayor Carlo DeMaria and Integral Arts Everett President/Founder Karyn Alzayer are pleased to announce the first annual Everett Community Art Walk. The Art Walk is a citywide, monthlong art scavenger hunt that will be on display throughout various city locations.

By fostering local partnerships between artists, nonprofi ts, businesses, and the city, we are putting culture at the center of economic and community development,” said DeMaria. “I also want to thank our state delegation and the Everett Cultural Council for funding this event.” Visitors are invited to explore the city and find artwork hidden throughout local businesses and community organizations. A ribbon cutting ceremony kicking off the Art Walk will take place on October 1 at 11:30 a.m. in the City Hall lobby (484 Broadway).

Scavenger hunt maps will be available in all participating locations as well as online throughout the month. Participants are encouraged to try to fi nd all the hidden artwork throughout the city, and document their fi ndings on their map or on social media. “We really can’t wait to welcome people to participate in this,” said Alzayer. “We worked really hard to come up with a fun way to invite folks to explore local businesses, connect with our community, and be invested in all that Everett has to off er. And the arts are always a great way to foster that kind of engagement.

Governor Karyn Polito said she and Baker have not lost sight of their days serving on the local level. “As former municipal offi cials, Governor Baker and I understand how small-scale projects, like housing rehabilitation or ADA-compliant building enhancements, can have a major impact on a community and on the quality of life for residents,” she said. U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren said it is an ongoing challenge to keep the program funded. “Last year, I worked alongside mayors from across Massachusetts and the Massachusetts congressional delegation to block proposed cuts to the Community Development Block Grant,” she said. “I’m in that fi ght again this year, as we fi nalize appropriations for Fiscal Year 2020.”
