However, David Cecere, spokesperson for the Everett campus of Cambridge Health Alliance, was hesitant to fully endorse the vaccine. “The Pfi zer announcement is encouraging, but it’s far too early to draw any conclusions,” he said. Sabrina Firicano, the city’s public health nurse, agreed that is still early on in the process. “I think for Everett, it is something Right by you. Member FDIC Member DIF to continue to monitor,” she said. “At this moment there are no set guidelines on who will be qualifying for the initial doses of the vaccine.” As of November 8, more than 43,500 participants were enrolled in the third phase of the clinical trial, which began on July 27. If all goes well, Pfi zer expects to have 50 million doses of the vaccine available before the end of the year. In addition, as E Friday, November 13, 2020 Local health professionals encouraged but not sold on Pfizer vaccine many as 1.3 billion doses could be available in 2021. “The fi rst set of results from our Phase 3 trial provides the initial evidence of our vaccine’s ability to prevent COVID-19,” said Pfizer Chairman/CEO Dr. Albert Bourla. “We are reaching this critical milestone in our vaccine development program at a time when the world needs it most with infection rates setting new records, hospitals nearing over-capacity and economies struggling to reopen. We are a significant step closer to providing people around the world with a much-needed breakthrough to help bring an end to this global health crisis. We look forward to sharing additional effi cacy and safety data generated from thousands of participants in the coming weeks.” Thus far, this potential game changer, known as BNT162b2, has proven to be 90 percent effective.

Page 2 THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 13, 2020 City Council considers ordinance to prevent animal cruelty By Christopher Roberson T he City Council recently reviewed an ordinance sponsored by Ward 2 Councillor Stephanie Martins that would prevent wild animals from suffering after being trapped. During the City Council’s November 9 meeting, Animal Control Officer Stacia Gorgone said that during the summer two squirrels were caught in a rooftop trap and were left there all day in 95-degree heat. “They suffered for 24 hours, the fact that they were still alive was insane,” she said. “Pest control showed up and acted extremely inappropriately; they laughed at me.” Gorgone said that under the current regulations she did not have the legal right to tell the pest control company to free the animals. “Pest control companies are just leaving them to suffer,” she said. However, under the proposed ordinance Gorgone would be authorized to release a trapped animal after six hours. She said that by law any trapped animal must be released in the same place it was captured, adding that the creatures typically stay away after they are let go. “Once they’re captured, they don’t come back; they want no part of that property,” she said. The council will revisit the matter during its next meeting. “Everett Matters” and technology In other news, Ward 1 Councillor Fred Capone questioned the need for the city’s monthly newsletter, “Everett Matters.” The newsletter is currently sent to residents with their water bill and costs $4,000 per month to produce. “Maybe we don’t need to be doing ‘Everett Matters’ right Dear Editor: Everett Ed. Coalition opposes Charter change through Home Rule Petition As members of the Everett Education Coalition, we are appalled at an attempt to change the Everett City Charter through a Home Rule Petition, rather than through a ballot initiative. One of the proposed changes would add the Mayor of the City of Everett as a voting member of the elected School Committee. We share resident disgust and anger regarding the method of this change, which excludes the voice of now,” he said, adding that money has already been tight with the COVID-19 pandemic. “We’ve got three newspapers.” Capone also said information is routinely distributed though the City of Everett’s website and Facebook page and Everett Community Television. However, Deanna Deveney, the city’s communications director, said “Everett Matters” still serves a valuable purpose as none of the newspapers are mailed to residents’ homes. “This newsletter is a direct result of residents asking for it,” she said. City Council President Rosa DiFlorio said technology upgrades remain ongoing in the City Council Chambers and that some projects may have to go out to bid. “We have amplifiers that are 40 years old,” she said. “We have to make sure everything works.” LETTER TO THE EDITOR our voters. As families, students, educators, and advocates we are also alarmed that failure to explore the potential for political influence without an open and transparent conversation could have negative consequences for our students.

The final design is currently underway and the project is estimated to take nine months to one year. “I’m looking forward to the second phase of renovations to begin,” said DeMaria. “The first phase of this renovation was truly fantastic and I am excited for the Everett community to be able to enjoy the park fully when the final phase is complete. It will remain my goal as Mayor to continue to improve our infrastructure with parks being a major component of that.” This phase will include the reconstruction of the ball field, the community garden and the retaining wall. Additionally, new synthetic turf and lighting features will be installed. During this time, the fields north of the basketball courts and the community garden will be restricted A rendering of Florence Street Park following the current renovation project (Photo Courtesy of the City of Everett) to the public due to construction activities. The first phase of this renovation was focused on the reconstruction of lower Florence Street Park and was completed in the fall of 2018. These improvements have provided the community with updated features in the park that consist of a reconstruction of the basketball courts, splash pad and playing structures. Mayor DeMaria is eager for the final phase of the renovation to begin and has been supportive of funding park improvement projects. The City of Everett has been working diligently throughout this process to ensure that the improvements at Florence Street Park will help create a special place for the community to gather.

During the rally in front of City Hall, Adrien, 31, said being a city councillor is something she has wanted for more than two decades. “I’ve wanted to do this work ever since I was 10 years old,” she said. “I told them I wasn’t going to resign – that’s ridiculous.

Before anybody speaks, they should be speaking the facts, you need to check people’s records,” she said. DiFlorio also said it was her idea to have a number of city services available online. “We’ve done enough to keep the city safe and the kids educated,” she said. In addition, DiFlorio said she has always acted in a fair manner when voting on matters before the council. “When I vote on things, I take Councillor-at-Large Gerly Adrien spoke without a mask during her rally on November 9 in front of City Hall.

(Courtesy Photo) in community affairs and government. It helps participants learn how to monitor and influence public policy, particularly at the local and state levels. Like other civic education programs of its kind – though a national forerunner in terms of its correctional facility setting – Project Citizen affords participants the opportunity to build on other educational opportunities and resources offered by MSO and to develop skills necessary for future success. Among the skills highlighted in this and other programs are effective oral and written communication skills, critical thinking skills, effective teamwork and leadership. The program is being facilitated by Melrose School Committee Chair Ed O’Connell, who was himself formerly incarcerated. “It’s an honor and privilege to be able to work with a group of young adults who are committed to not only improving their own lives, through educational opportunities aimed at personal development, but who are also committed to developing the skills necessary to make a positive impact in their communities,” O’Connell said. “Upon release from incarceration, these young men will be ready to engage in the civic life of their communities as active and informed citizens, each with the capacity to carry out their civic responsibilities and to add value where they live and work. [Middlesex Sheriff Peter] Koutoujian is to be commended for adding Project Citizen to the slate of programs available at the Middlesex Jail and House of Correction, each aimed at creating opportunities for reflection, rehabilitation and successful re-entry for returning citizens.” “I want to thank Chairman O’Connell for partnering with us on this important program,” said Sheriff Koutoujian. “This initiative builds upon efforts we have undertaken at the Middlesex Jail and House of Correction to educate those in our care and custody about the role they can play in bettering their communities through community engagement. Whether it’s helping individuals register to vote or giving them the tools to identify and address public policy issues that directly impact them and their families, we are empowering individuals to improve their lives and our communities.” Over the course of 12 weeks, participants will interact with outside professionals with expertise in public policy and other related areas. Participants will also identify a public policy issue, develop a strategy to address it and present their approach to community stakeholders as a class project.

Page 8 THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 13, 2020 ~ GUEST COMMENTARY ~ History and War: A Veterans Day Refl ection By Dr. Earl H. Tilford F or 50 years, I have had one foot planted in Sparta and one in Athens: the military and the academy. The dichotomy is not simply between militarism and intellectualism. Athenians Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle were soldiers as well as philosophers. Athens limited citizenship to free men of substance and by that they meant “arete” or “excellence.” These men lived responsible lives. One of those Tough way to start the weekend responsibilities included military service. Men and women of America’s “Greatest Generation” fought and won World War II. American leaders included Presidents Franklin Roosevelt and Harry Truman. Prime Minister Winston Churchill and most American and British generals were shaped by World War I. In their youth, Roosevelt and Truman, along with most of the American military leaders of World War II as well as many of my generation’s parents, heard stories from veterans of America’s costliest confl ict: the Civil War. When Truman agonized over his decision to use atomic weapons to end the war with Japan, he refl ected on his experiences as a Great War artillery captain. Truman and FDR also remembered the old men, many with missing limbs, who related their Civil War experiences. Fifty years ago, on Veterans Emergency responders were called to the scene of a vehicle that had rolled over at 288 Ferry St. on Friday evening. The driver reportedly suffered only minor injuries, and traffi c had to be redirected so the car could be up righted by a tow truck. (Advocate photos by Mike Layhe) Day 1970, I was settling into my fi rst assignment as an intelligence offi cer posted to Udorn Royal Thai Air Force Base, a highly secret complex 50 miles south of the Laotian border. There I complied and delivered the morning intelligence briefing to the general in charge of the secret air war in northern Laos, where we supported Hmong guerillas and Thai mercenaries who fought the North Vietnamese and their Communist Pathet Lao ally. Since American involvement was beyond top secret, I knew nothing about it before arriving. Fortunately, I had access to CIA documents and to the few books on Laos, and (despite 12-hour shifts) there was plenty of time to read. By June 1971, I had The New York Times edition of The Pentagon Papers. I learned the French fought this war 15 to 20 years earlier. Our technology and resources were far greater, especially in the air war. We dropped more bomb tonnage on Laos in one day than the French did throughout Indochina between 1946 and 1954. I got to Udorn after fi nishing my master’s degree in history. While I knew something of history, I did not know how much I did not know. When I returned home in October 1971, there were more questions than answers. By 1974, I had decided to leave the Air Force for law school. Then, unexpectedly, the Offi ce of Air Force History called from Washington, D.C.: “How would you like to work on the 14-volume offi cial history of Air Force operations in the Vietnam War?” My wife, a college librarian, suggested I fl y to Washington. I did and got hired. My fi rst day on the job was Monday, April 26, 1975. On Friday, a North Vietnamese Army tank crashed through the gates of the presidential palace in Saigon and ended the war. Two months later, I enrolled as a graduate student at George Washington University (GWU). My mentors were Dr. J. Kenneth McDonald, Director of the CIA History Offi ce, and Dr. Vladimir Petrov, a Russian expatriate who served in a Russian anti-Communist guerrilla unit fi ghting alongside German forces, doing so because from 1934 to 1940 he mined gold in a Stalinist prison camp in Siberia for the “crime” of playing mail chess with an American student in California. Vlad fl ed the USSR in 1945 and ended up at Harvard, where he earned his Ph.D. in history. On day one at GWU, Ken McDonald handed me Carl von Clausewitz’s “On War,” Sun Tzu’s “The Art of War,” and Russell Weigley’s “The American Way of War.” I also read all six volumes of Winston Churchill’s “History of World War II” and all of his other works. Churchill epitomized “arete.” Vladimir Petrov had personally experienced the evils of Communism. He also introduced me to his fellow expatriate, Alexander Solzhenitsyn. I spent four decades in the national security and academic fi elds, including eight years teaching at Grove City College in Grove City, Pennsylvania. I learned from a life spent in Sparta and Athens that humans consistently do three things: eat, reproduce, and fi ght. We are the only species that kills for reasons other than survival. We kill to gain resources, for political and religious concepts, and some do it for pleasure. Ultimately, there are three approaches to the future. First, go with the fl ow. Most people do and it renders chaos. Second, faith in something larger than ourselves. For Christians and Jews that’s God. Third, history – because knowing the past is the only way to predict the future. Last Tuesday, I wore my “Vietnam Veteran” baseball hat to the polls. A poll watcher asked, “Are you over 70?” She led me to the front of the line. The young man who certified me said, “Thank you for your service.” HISTORY | SEE PAGE 10

THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 13, 2020 Page 9 Mayor warns of unemployment fraud T he COVID-19 pandemic caused millions of people to lose their jobs and fi le for unemployment benefi ts in Massachusetts. Unfortunately, Massachusetts, along with numerous other states, has been hit hard with fraudulent unemployment claims. The Massachusetts Department of Unemployment Assistance (DUA) has reported that over 58,000 fraudulent unemployment claims have been detected throughout the state, preventing the loss of over $158 million. “It’s frustrating to hear that there are fraudulent unemployment claims happening in our state and our community,” said Mayor Carlo DeMaria. “The people who are genuinely fi ling a claim because they lost their job should not have to face another hurdle to try to collect unemployment funds. These are uncertain times and it is my hope that the resources provided by the DUA can help rectify this situation.” The DUA has verification steps in place to help validate your identity when fi ling for a claim. They have stated that there is no evidence of a state data breach and is working diligently with claimants to ensure their protection. If you feel that your identity has been stolen, the DUA has provided steps you can take to protect yourself: • File a police report with your local police department. Be sure to ask for a copy of the report so you will be able to provide it to creditors and credit agencies. • Change your passwords on your email, banking, and all other personal accounts. • Reach out to your credit card companies, banks and other financial institutions where you do business. Explain to them that you suspect that you are a victim of identity theft and request that they put a “fraud alert” on your account. • Run a credit report and dispute any charges that appear fraudulent. You may request credit reports online from the major credit reporting agencies: Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion or by calling the Federal Trade Commission, 1-877-322-8228. • Place a credit freeze with each of the major credit reporting agencies. Additionally, place a “fraud alert” on your credit file by contacting just one of the credit agencies and this will add an alert to the others. • Equifax: 1-800-349-9960 or https://www.equifax.com/personal/credit-report-services/ • Experian: 1-888-397-3742 or https://www.experian.com/ freeze/center.html • TransUnion: 1-888-909-8872 or https://www.transunion. com/credit-freeze • Take notes of all conversations and keep copies of all documents. The DUA wants to assure the residents of Massachusetts that protecting claimants’ information is their top priority. If you feel that someone is using your identity to falsely claim unemployment benefits, there are signs to recognize this activity: • Asking you to pay a fee • The DUA will never ask you to pay a fee for assistance with FRAUD | SEE PAGE 10 ~ Home of the Week ~ SAUGUS...PERIWINKLE PARK AT ITS BEST!

Page 10 THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 13, 2020 Everett still honors veterans despite pandemic By Christopher Roberson D espite the ongoing challenges that have defined 2020, city and state officials took time out to remember those who have proudly served in the U.S. Armed Forces. “Today, we can pause from the chaos,” said State Representative Joseph McGonagle during the virtual Veterans Day Ceremony on November 11. McGonagle said Massachusetts still provides the best veteran benefits in the country. He said that can be attributed to the BRAVE Act (Boosting Rates of American Veteran Employment Act) that was passed in August 2018 as well as a $190 million facility at the Chelsea Soldiers’ Home. “But we still have a long way to go,” he said, adding that several veterans at the Chelsea and Holyoke Soldiers’ Homes have been lost to COVID-19. “We must serve and protect our veterans as they served and protected us.” During her keynote address, Army Colonel Andrea Gayle-Bennett spoke about being deployed for four months in the Iraqi desert. “The worst part wasn’t war, the worst part was being away from my family,” she said. Gayle-Bennett said deployments are particularly difficult on children as they must constantly live with the uncertainty of not knowing whether or not their mother or father will be coming home. “The price of freedom is high,” she said.

Page 12 THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 13, 2020 Everett 12U girls’ softball team Crowned Champs By Tara Vocino T he Everett 12U Girls Softball Team won the USA Softball of Massachusetts Championship, 5-1, against the Salem Witches at Mack Park on Sunday afternoon. Head Coach Nicholas Olson said his team beat two great teams in the playoffs to become champions. The championship game was a grind and a hardfought game. He singled out a few key plays. “Shortstop Jayla Davila led the game off with a perfect bunt, and Salem wasn’t ready for it,” Olson said. “For our girls to hold Salem to just one run shows how good Sophia Clarke pitched (with 10 strike-outs) and how great our girls did on defense.” Salem had a great pitcher as well, and he knew they had to capitalize each time the girls got on base. Shortstop Jayla Davila, second baseman Luiza Velev and outfielder Julianna Ferguson helped them big time on the bases, according to Olson. He added that their trophies might end up dusty or in an attic somewhere, but this memory will last a lifetime for them. EVERETT TIDE PRIDE: The Everett Tide 12U team won the championship, 5-1, against Salem on Sunday. Back row: Head Coach Nicholas Olson, outfielder Sarah Tiberii , second baseman Luiza Velev, first baseman Alexa Morello, catcher Emilia Maria-Babcock, pitcher Sophia Clarke, outfielder Maeve Hurley, outfielder Michaela Marchant, and Assistant Coach John Morello. Front row: Assistant Coach Danielle Nadeau, outfielder Jordyn Sikora, shortstop Jayla Davila, outfielder Ariana Rouse, outfielder/ second baseman Kassidy Rivera, outfielder Julianna Ferguson and Team Manager Robin Babcock. He gave them some advice early on. “I knew they were a special group of kids that has a lot of talent, and I told them if they learn the little things and execute on the little things, we would have a chance,” Olson said. All season long pitcher Sophia Clarke has been dominant on the mound with 97 strike outs in 12 games. Catcher Emilia Maria-Babcock has been a brick wall behind the plate. All season, Ashley Seward, shortstop Jayla Davila and outfielder Sarah Tiberii have been strong leaders for this team, Olson added. “We had a solid defense that only allowed 42 runs led by first baseman Alexa Morello, second baseman Luiza Velev, third baseman Ashley Seward and shortstop Jayla Davila,” Olson said. “We produced 157 runs at the plate led by outfielder Sarah Tiberii, outfielder Maeve Hurley, catcher Emilia Maria-Babcock, and outfielder/ second baseman Kassidy Rivera.” Davila, Hurley and outfielder Ariana Rouse were a constant threat to the opposing team on the bases. Arianna Osorio-Bonilla, outfielder Jordyn Sikora, Julianna Ferguson and outfielder Michaela Marchant have made tremendous progress throughout the year, and it showed at clutch moments in the playoffs to help the team become champions.

FISCAL 2020 SUPPLEMENTAL BUDGET (H 5102) House 157-0, Senate on a voice vote without a roll call approved and sent to Gov. Charlie Baker, a fiscal 2020 supplemental budget to close out the books on fiscal year 2020. A key provision to help fund the budget diverts the scheduled automatic transfer of capital gains tax revenue estimated at $400 million to the state Rainy Day Fund. Provisions include $422 million for MassHealth, the state’s Medicaid program that provides healthcare for low-income and disabled persons; $62.6 million for the Group Insurance Commission; $11.9 million for the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education; $1.9 million for the promotion of the restaurant industry; $6.6 million for the State Police; $727,170 to reimburse municipalities for early voting costs from the March 3 presidential primary; $711,947 for a grant program focused on advanced skill training for the home care aide workforce that serves consumers of the elder home care program; and creation of an Opioid Recovery and Remediation Trust Fund to mitigate the impacts of the state’s opioid epidemic including expanding access to opioid use disorder prevention, intervention, treatment and recovery options. Other provisions include giving flexibility to UMass by permitting it to secure a short-term line of credit for operating costs capped at eight percent of the university’s total approved operating budget; a limited retroactive extension to the statute of limitations for a cause of action concerning prescription opioids brought against Purdue Pharma and its owners; and a change to the state’s unemployment law to ensure that people receiving Pandemic Unemployment Assistance will receive an additional seven weeks of benefits, fully covered by the federal government. Overall, this budget is a fiscally responsible and targeted piece of legislation that will help close the books on fiscal year 2020,” explained Senate Ways and Means Chair Mike Rodrigues (D-Westport). Of the 39 amendments proposed by representatives, 36 were withdrawn including a controversial one by Rep. Mike Connolly (D-Cambridge) that would have extended a moratorium on evictions and foreclosures for failure to pay until at least January 1, 2021. The amendment would also give the governor the authority to postpone the expiration in increments of up to 90 days. SOCIAL SECURITY BENEFITS FOR A DIVORCED SPOUSE A divorced spouse must meet certain conditions in order to collect social security benefits based upon his or her ex-spouse’s work history. The divorced spouse must have been married for at least 10 years. The divorced spouse must not have remarried. If remarried, the divorced spouse will still be able to collect benefits based upon the ex-spouse’s work history so long as the second marriage ended by death, divorce or annulment. If the divorced spouse did remarry, he or she could collect under either exspouse’s work history so long as the second marriage also lasted at least 10 years, or if the second spouse died, that marriage lasted at least 9 months. Furthermore, a divorced spouse must be at least 62 years of age or older to collect. If the ex-spouse is deceased and the divorced spouse is at least 50 years of age, the divorced spouse can collect social security benefits if deemed disabled by the Social Security Administration. A divorced spouse can begin collecting benefits so long as the ex-spouse is at least 62 years of age and he or she has been divorced for at least two years. The divorced spouse is eligible to receive one half of the ex-spouse’s social security benefits. If, however, the ex-spouse dies, then the divorced spouse can then collect 100% of the ex-spouse’s full retirement benefit. This benefit would not include any delayed retirement credits the ex-spouse may receive. The divorced spouse would only be able to receive a benefit based upon the value of the ex-spouse’s benefit at his or her full retirement age. Full retirement age for those born between 1943 and 1954 is 66 years old. From 1955 to 1960, full retirement age gradually increases. For those born in 1960 or later, full retirement age is 67. A person born prior to January 2, 1954 has the option of first collecting based upon the ex-spouse’s work history while allowing his or her own benefits to grow until reaching age 70, and then switching over to his or her own work history. The law was recently changed so that a divorced spouse born after January 1, 1954 applying for social security benefits will automatically receive the highest benefit for which he or she is entitled to, based upon either his or her own work history, or the work history of the ex-spouse. He or she no longer has the option of collecting benefits based upon the ex-spouse’s work history and then switching over to his or her own work history at age 70. Nothing uncomplicated about social security benefits when dealing with divorce. A moratorium approved by the Legislature and signed by the governor on April 20 expired on October 17 and the Legislature has not extended it. Supporters say that without the extension, there will be tens of thousands of tenants evicted. (A “Yes” vote is for the budget.) Rep. Joseph McGonagle Yes HOW LONG WAS LAST WEEK’S SESSION? Beacon Hill Roll Call tracks the length of time that the House and Senate were in session each week. Many legislators say that legislative sessions are only one aspect of the Legislature’s job and that a lot of important work is done outside of the House and Senate chambers. They note that their jobs also involve committee work, research, constituent work and other matters that are important to their districts. Critics say that the Legislature does not meet regularly or long enough to debate and vote in public view on the thousands of pieces of legislation that have been filed. They note that the infrequency and brief length of sessions are misguided and lead to irresponsible late-night sessions and a mad rush to act on dozens of bills in the days immediately preceding the end of an annual session. During the week of November 2-6, the House met for a total of eight hours and 18 minutes while the Senate met for a total of six hours and 21 minutes. Mon. Nov. 2 House 11:02 a.m. to 11:11 a.m. Senate 11:10 a.m. to 11:19 a.m. No Senate session Tues. Nov. 3 No House session. Wed. Nov. 4 House 11:02 a.m. to 1:04 p.m. No Senate session Thurs.
