THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, January 6, 2023 Page 3 MelroseWakefield Hospital’s Mobile Food Market Celebrates 10th Year 10% Off Senior Discount! SNOW BLOWER SALES, SERVICE & REPAIRS Pickup/Delivery Available 1039 BROADWAY, REVERE WWW.BIKERSOUTFITTER.COM AUTOTECH M alden, MA - On a recent Saturday afternoon a volunteer placed a shopping bag fi lled with 30 pounds of fresh produce, pasta and canned and dry goods onto a pallet, along with 649 other similarly filled bags. For the past few hours 60 volunteers, including hospital workers, high school and college students and other community members, fi lled the bags, in an assembly line as part of MelroseWakefi eld Hospital’s North Suburban Women, Infant and Children (WIC) Mobile Food Market.The process, made up of equal parts effi ciency, eff ectiveness, hard work and caring, has been repeated each month for the past ten years. Since 2012 the award-winning Mobile Food Market based in Malden has served thousands of families in local communities, providing high-quality, nutritious produce and staple pantry items for free to community members in need, in partnership with the cities of Malden and Medford, the Greater Boston Food Bank, and a local chapter of ZONTA, an international service agency. “The Mobile Market is an example of our commitment to addressing a local need by partnering with the Greater Boston Food Bank to bring healthy food to those experiencing food insecurity,” said Eileen Dern, Director of Community Services at MelroseWakefi eld Hospital. “Food is one of the most important components of health. Anytime we can put healthy food on a family’s table we are improving their chances to live a healthier life.” Food insecurity in eastern Massachusetts is a signifi cant issue, aff ecting one of every 13 adults and one of every 11 children. To address these high food insecurity rates, the farmers-market style distribution off ers healthy grocery options, which are provided by the Greater Boston Food Bank to approximately 650 diverse, low-income families (nearly 3,000 individuals) each month. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the market shifted to a delivery service to ensure food was available and that families, staff and volunteers remained safe. Each month community partners work with the hospital to ensure deliveries of hard produce and shelf stable panty items to the most at-risk individuals and families. Additionally, COVID-19 test kits, warm socks, and health information in multiple languages were shared in the deliveries. In addition to providing food to those in need, hospital staff and partner agencies off er additional health services, including blood pressure and blood sugar screenings, fl u vaccinations, and information about enrollment in SNAP benefi ts, health insurance and WIC services to name a few. More than 60 MelroseWakefi eld Hospital and community volunteers regularly support the program. In 2016, the Mobile Food Market received the prestigious Hospital Charitable Services Award, a national program sponsored by Atlanta-based Jackson Healthcare presented to hospital-sponsored community health programs for their innovative approaches to impacting the lives in local communities around the nation. The Mobile Food Market has been used as a model for the development of more than eight other food markets in Massachusetts and is a catalyst to address the community-wide issue of food insecure vulnerable populations, including families, elders, immigrants, and individuals affected by chronic health issues, unemployment, or other adverse situations such as housing or family situations. Eileen Dern serves as a member of the Greater Boston Food Bank’s Health and Research Council whose purpose is to advise the food bank’s community-based research, programming, and policy work.

Levine “Y ou gotta be a football hero to get along with the beautiful girls...” Well, that helps but you combine that with a killer smile, an outsized personality and Hollywood good looks – whatcha got is Malden High School sophomore James Hyppolite, this week’s Malden Musings Celebrity Spotlight. His contribution on Turkey Day 2022 helped score an impressive Thanksgiving Day victory over ancient MHS arch rival, Medford High School. The future looks bright for this young man. Malden Recreation Director Joe Levine, his wife Helen and daughter Dorothy have taken young James under their collective wings. When Dorothy speaks, we listen: “About 5-6 years ago, my dad called me and said, ‘Dorothy you got to meet this kid James I just met’. Something about my dad’s fi rst encounter with him made a lasting impression. Then every week for a few months my dad said the exact same thing ‘you gotta make time to come meet James.’ I headed to Green Street where I met James after his basketball game. A young skinny 5th grader with a smile that lit up a room, from that moment I knew he was something special. They do not make kids like him anymore; he is a combination of Wiston Jeune and Witche Exilhomme with his own little spark. Not many kids have as much passion and motivation as James does. James has not had the easiest life, but you would never know by talking to him. He makes every single person feel special with his rapport. “One of my favorite recent memories of James was after From all of us at Carpenito Real Estate... The face of happiness, James Hyppolite the Malden/Medford Thanksgiving game at Fenway. He arrived back at the stadium, Joan Santo (bus driver) got off the bus fi rst to congratulate every kid, most kids said thank you and kept moving. James (who would not let go of the trophy) got off the bus and thanked her but stopped and asked her to take a picture with him and the trophy. The look in Joan’s face was priceless. “One more thing, this year Malden/Medford had a unifi ed fl ag football game. I could not attend, but received messages that James really stood out as a leader that day. James was interviewed by the media and unfortunately, his clip was cut out. I asked him if he was upset, he said, ‘no, I’m just happy the unifi ed students got to speak, and they enjoyed their day.’ He then told me someone from Medford told him he is going to be a great leader someday; little did that person know James is already emerging as great leader at just 16 years old. 335 Central Street, Saugus, MA 01906 (781) 233-7300 View all our listings at: CarpenitoRealEstate.com “James just knows how to make everyone feel included and special. James’s loyalty is unmatched. Malden is a better city for having James in it; he holds all his friends accountable while making each of them a better person. His future is bright, and I am excited to be there for every step along the way. Sky’s the limit.” Let’s hear from James himself: 1. My full name is... James Hyppolite. 2. I am currently... wrestling at the high school and working out with the best coach in the state, Witche Exilhomme. 3. I am saving up... to get a house in Texas with (brother) Kevin. Our childhood dream is to get a house together. 4. My home is in... Malden. 5. I love people who... genuinely love me. 6. Something I say a lot is... “what the word man!” 7. I consider myself to be... a loving, caring person. 8. I need to have... my family and friends in my life because they are what motivates me to keep working hard every day. 9. My favorite movie of all time is... ‘Love & Basketball.’ 10. My all-time role model is... Witche Exilhomme! Witche has such a pure heart, and he shows me you can accomplish anything in life if you put your mind [to it], since the 7th grade he has been there for me, and I love and appreciate that man a lot. 11. I respect people who... respect me and I also respect people who respect themselves because without self-respect you have no value. 12. The best thing anyone has ever said to me is... “work hard to make life easy.” (Thank you Coach Witche.) 13. I am happy when... I am with the people I love. What makes me truly happy is seeing others around me happy. 14. I find my brother (Kevin) very funny – whenever I am mad, he makes me laugh. 15. I am not named after anybody in particular. 16. My favorite coach(es) are... Witche Exilhomme and Winston Juene because they are both great mentors and leaders. They are very funny, and I love being around them. MUSINGS| SEE PAGE 19

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, January 6, 2023 Page 7 Zonta Club of Malden honors 3 Fellows at Annual Amelia Earhart Dinner on Jan. 19, 2023 at Anthony‘s T he Zonta Club of Malden is excited to announce the Annual Amelia Earhart Dinner. As part of their ongoing efforts to empower women, especially in Science and Technology, Zonta International in partnership with Zonta Clubs of Malden and Chelsea will be awarding 3 women a $10,000 fellowship for their Doctoral research. Our 2022 Fellows that are being honored are: Adriana Mitchell - Aerospace engineering at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, USA Ms. Mitchell is developing a “smart” solution to the visual navigation problem with NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory by using machine learning to perform visual navigation across different image types, including visual images, thermal images and RADAR images of potential future planetary lander candidates, like Mars, Titan and even Venus, where only RADAR can penetrate the thick atmosphere to image the surface. Her results will help give future missions access to new locations currently unreachable by current visual navigation techniques as well as helping to continue to improve landing accuracy on Mars and the Moon. Madeleine Schroeder - Aerospace engineering at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, USA In her doctoral research, Ms. ~ Letter to the Editor ~ Dear Malden Councillors and residents, Concerned residents and the Friends of the NEMT Forest shared a presentation about the Northeast Metropolitan Regional Technical School (NEMT) building site at the Friends of the Malden River meeting in December of 2022. Informed residents are interested in understanding the NEMT Building Committee’s choice of the most expensive and least favorable building site as reviewed and rejected in pre-feasibility reports. The media and many residents, including municipal leaders, have been misinformed about the chosen building site. In February of 2021 - Massachusetts School Building Authority posted that the new VOKE would be constructed on existing developed land. 11 out of the 12 member (of NEMT district) communities voted in favor of a much needed new facility. The Friends of the NEMT Forest understand the need to improve and expand the outdated facility. A new VOKE will be an asset to all of our region. Many people are unaware of the potential impacts that this hilltop building site entails. The NEMT Forest advocates endorse the need for a new VOKE but disagree with this choice of building sites with minimal public outreach and input. The third choice of building site (forested hilltop C) raises the costs about $40 million in greater site work, raises concerns about accessibility for all students, especially those with disabilities, and destroys 13 acres of forest that harbors wetlands and vernal pools. The City of Malden is in the midst of creating a Climate Action Plan, participating in Municipal Vulnerability Preparedness Programs, investing in stormwater management plans, and working on other much needed actions to protect and improve our existing green and blue space. We cannot look away from this vital thirteen-acre forest while other options exist. I thank you in advance for joining one of these Zoom informational meetings.

Schroeder will develop and experimentally validate a comprehensive molecular model of the evaporation and fragmentation of ionic liquids to determine why ion clusters of different sizes are emitted and how these clusters fragment under different conditions. She will design new experimental methods to characterize the effects of cluster emission and fragmentation on propulsive efficiency in addition to other factors that affect system performance. This information will be used to design electrospray hardware and operating conditions that improve propulsive performance and system lifetime. Maya Nasr Ms. Nasr is passionate about increasing global representation and access in the space sector and bringing awareness to nationality-based discrimination in career opportunities for foreign nationals. She is a TEDx talk-featured speaker about this topic and is currently the co-founder of the HUMANS— Humanity United with MIT Art and Nanotechnology in Space—project that creates a symbolic avenue for space access worldwide, and is intended to be launched to the International Space Station (ISS) in partnership with the MIT Space Exploration Initiative (SEI).

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, January 6, 2023 Page 9 PRESIDENT | FROM PAGE 1 focus on what is ahead,” Councillor Murphy said. The third-most senior Councillor, behind Ward 2’s Paul Condon and Councillor Spadafora, Murphy said the challenge of helping govern our “vibrant city” moving forward would be to “focus on those goals which would have the greatest impact on our Malden community.” The Ward 5 Councillor explained that to approach this goal of a renewed sense of focus, she had requested that all of the chairpersons of the Council’s standing committees that she named at the Dec. 20 meeting provide her with a list of “one to fi ve specifi c goals, priorities or initiatives” they would like to achieve or establish in the coming year. “From each committee we would be able to address different topics and scope,” Councillor Murphy said. (See separate story on Council Committee appointments.) At the Dec. 20 Council meeting, the then Council President-elect Murphy named the members of the Standing Committees and others and after these announcements, pledged to lead the Council to goals of establishing better lines of dialogue and communication, as well as establishing clarity and discipline as key pursuits of the full Council. “It is my hope that we work together as a collective group to achieve goals on behalf of our community members,” Councillor Murphy said. “I will look to all of you to make sure we make clear where everyone can add value through their experience and expertise. “I look forward to working with all of you and I thank you so much for your trust and support in me and I look forward to doing a good job in 2003.” Her comments also came following the formal vote on the Councill fl oor to elect her as Council President. The motion to elect Councillor Murphy was made by Ward 6 Councillor Stephen Winslow, following his nomination of Murphy as a candidate. There were no other nominations. Murphy was elected unanimously by a 9-0 vote. Voting in favor to elect her as Council President for 2023 were Councillors Peg Crowe (Ward 1), Paul Condon (Ward 2), Amanda Linehan (Ward 3), Murphy (Ward 5), Winslow (Ward 6), Jadeane Sica (Ward 8) and Councillors-at-Large Karen Colón Hayes, Carey McDonald and Craig Spadafora.

Page 10 THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, January 6, 2023 MCNAUGHT | FROM PAGE 1 McNaught was appointed as Malden's new City Solicitor and Carol Ann Desiderio, who has served as Assistant City Clerk for many years, was appointed as City Clerk— both in unanimous Malden City Council votes in recent meetings. Attorney McNaught was appointed to fill the unexpired term of former City Solicitor Kathryn Fallon, who departed in August to take a similar position in Wakefield after 15 years at the head of the Malden Law Department. McNaught was appointed to fill her unexpired term, which runs until January 1, 2025 by a 10-0 Council vote. He had been serving as interim City Solicitor since Fallon's departure in August. Desiderio, who has served as Assistant City Clerk for over 10 years, was also appointed as City Clerk by a unanimous Council vote at a recent meeting. She began her full-time duties, replacing outgoing City Clerk Greg Lucey, at her first official City Council meeting this week on Tuesday evening. Lucey had been Malden's City Clerk for the past three years and announced his retirement at the end of the 2022 calendar year earlier this fall. He had served about 20 years in municipal positions overall, including past posts as School Committee member, on the City Council for many years and in the City Treasurer's Office in past years. Vice Chairperson of the Council's Personnel and Appointments Committee, Ward 3's Amanda Linehan, introduced Attorney McNaught as the finalist at the Council meeting, explaining that there two final candidates and McNaught was the best choice. McNaught appeared at the meeting and gave his background, noting he had been married 55 years and had two children in their 50s. He had started his professional career in another field, before becoming a practicing attorney for 47 years, also previously serving Melrose City Solicitor before coming to Malden nine and a half years ago and serving with former Solicitor Fallon.

Vertep is the Ukrainian cultural tradition of Christmas puppet theater that began in the 17th century. Traveling groups of performers shared stories interweaving scenes from the nativity with daily life, with up to 40 distinct characters. The Vertep theatre developed into numerous regional variants but always with a central storyline: the conflict between good and evil. Evil is always vanquished and good always triumphs. Vertep was an illegal practice during the Soviet occupation of Ukraine but continued to be performed in secret as a way for the Ukrainian people to both rebel and preserve their culture. Today, with darkness looming over Ukraine, these rich traditions offer a light of hope to lead us through this joyous season. The Ukrainian Cultural Center of New England hopes to share this tradition to bring hope, faith and joy to our communities – by reminding us that good will always win over evil.

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, January 6, 2023 Page 13 Malden High girls’ basketball team heats up with four straight wins Gammon, Yak, Tropnas lead way for Tornados in win streak to start the season By Steve Freker A n early season win streak is a welcome holiday for Malden High School varsity girls basketball coach Scott Marino. He is quick to point out a common thread linking up the three straight victories for his Golden Tornados, who knocked off visiting non-leaguer Whittier Tech on Wednesday, December 21, 51-41, Malden’s third straight win. Malden added a fourth straight win, 44-24, on the road at Somerville High on Tuesday, January 2, to improve to 4-3 overall, 1-2 Greater Boston League (GBL). “It’s the leadership of our captains, number one,” Coach Marino told The Advocate after the December 21 win. “Tori [Gammon], Maritza [Ramos-Perez] and Angie [Colon] have done a phenomenal job in keeping us playing together. That’s the real strength of our team.” In addition to the Jan. 2 win at Somerville and Dec. 20 win over visiting Whittier, Malden also chalked up victories against Salem (Mass.) High, 3515, and Greater Boston League rival Everett, 53-39. “We have a very young team overall – four ninth graders and three sophomores are on the roster. We only have two seniors. Two of our captains [Gammon, Colon] are juniors,” Marino added. “This is the youngest team I have ever had here.” Marino said one of the major keys to success is that all of the players, particularly the young ones, are playing less as individuals and more in step with the team concept. “It is not easy to learn all that we need them to learn in such a short time and expect them to be able to perform right away,” the longtime Malden coach said, “but we are getting there.” Against Whittier, Malden was led by 6-2 senior center Anna Yak and junior captain Tori Gammon. Yak led all scorers with a career-high 18 points and could have had 25+ if a couple more layups did not roll around the rim and out. Gammon chipped in with 15 points, 12 coming in the first half. Malden Head Coach Scott Marino talked to the team during a timeout during Wednesday’s win over Whittier Tech. (Advocate Photo) Malden got a scare midway through the third quarter when there was a collision on the court and Gammon went down in obvious pain. She left the game at that point and left the gym on crutches after the game. “We are hoping it’s nothing serious for [Gammon],” Coach Marino said. “She’s our captain and our leading scorer.” Marino said it appeared Gammon may have knocked knees with a Whittier player and then fell to the gym floor. Malden rolled out to big leads against Whittier on Wednesday, up 17 after the third quarter. But the visitors refused to go away and kept within shouting distance in the fourth quarter, cutting the lead to 7 points with 4:51 left. But there was a big “three” from freshman Jenesa Perez-Sims and some big buckets by sophomore Kimberly Tropnas. Malden’s defense locks down Salem in a 35-15 win Malden played what will Malden High senior Anna Yak (14) led all scorers with a careerhigh 18 points on Wednesday in a 51-41 over visiting Whittier Tech.

Junior captain Tori Gammon led all scorers with 14 points. No one else broke double digits scoring, but three other players scored 5 points: junior Angie Colon, Anna Yak and Mafitza Ramos-Perez.

Malden swarmed the court and built leads of 15-8 after the first quarter and 2914 at halftime. In the second half, it was exactly even point-wise, as Malden led, 42-27, after three quarters and Everett battled it out to the wire. Statistically, Malden and Everett both scored exactly 13 points in each of the last two quarters.

This week, Beacon Hill Roll Call concludes its series on highlighting bills that were approved by the Legislature in 2022 on roll call votes and signed into law by Gov. Charlie Baker. ALLOW AMBULANCES TO BE USED FOR INJURED POLICE DOGS – NERO’S LAW(S 2573) Senate 38-0, (House on a voice vote without a roll call), approved and Gov. Charlie Baker signed into law legislation that would require EMS personnel to provide emergency treatment to a police dog and use an ambulance to transport the dog injured in the line of duty to a veterinary clinic or veterinary hospital if there are not people requiring emergency medical treatment or transport at that time. Sponsor Sen. Mark Montigny (D-New Bedford) first filed the bill in 2019 following the tragic death of Yarmouth Police Sgt. Sean Gannon who was shot and killed in the line of duty. His K-9 partner Nero was severely injured and had to be rushed to the animal hospital in the back of a police cruiser. Nero survived. Montigny also cites the heartbreaking loss of the beloved K-9 Kitt of the Braintree Police Department. “K-9 officers protect the men and women in law enforcement as well as the community at-large,” said Montigny. “These animals endure extreme danger from gun violence, narcotics and even explosive materials. Allowing our emergency personnel to provide basic treatment and transport is a commonsense measure that honors their contributions across the commonwealth. Sgt. Gannon was a native son of New Bedford and therefore his K-9 partner Nero is part of our community’s extended family. Words cannot describe the gratitude we have for the Gannon family for their tenacious and compassionate advocacy to get this bill done.” “With Nero’s Law, we have the opportunity to save K-9 members of law enforcement where the opportunity to do so would not place a person at risk,” said Sen. Susan Moran (D-Falmouth). “K-9s are their officers’ partners, shields and scouts. Like Nero and Kitt, their job is to put themselves in danger to protect us, and despite the K-9s’ service to our commonwealth, an archaic law stood in the way of measures that could save these valued members of law enforcement. This has gone on long enough.” (A “Yes” vote is for the bill.) Sen. Jason Lewis Yes MAKE ADOPTION BY FAMILY MEMBERS EASIER (S 2616) Senate 39-0, (House on a voice vote without a roll call), approved and the governor signed into law a bill that repeals a law which prohibits adoption of children by family members including older siblings, aunts and uncles. The proposal would allow these family members, with the permission of the Mystic Valley jumped out to an early lead with tough defense and top-notch offensive ball movement to take its second win of the tournament against Rockport on Wednesday. The Eagles’ defense never let up nor did their ball movement, effectively sealing the win. Sophomore Bailey DeLeire lead all scorers in the game with 22 points. Junior Breana Nansamba was one point away from double figures, scoring 9 points to go with 15 rebounds. Junior Aya Abbassi also had a big game, hauling in 13 rebounds. The scoring was rounded out by freshman Katie Guo with 4 points and Junior Rachel Nortelus with 2 points. Mystic Valley’s bench scored 37 total points, and despite getting in foul trouble early in the first half, ended the game with a score of 37-20, bringing their overall season record to 2-3. county probate courts, to legally adopt their family members. Current law only allows these family members to apply to become a guardian. Sponsor Sen. Joan Lovely (D-Salem) said that this archaic law was put in place at the beginning of the last century to prevent the potential for inheritance abuse, but the commonwealth has since adopted legal protections, such as conservatorships, to prevent this from occurring. “Our families are often our largest sources of support and what a family looks like can mean different things to different people,” said Lovely. “I filed [the bill] to better reflect the realities of the lives of Massachusetts residents who love and care for one another … our most vulnerable youth deserve to be cared for by the people who know and love them, and who can best assess their needs.” (A “Yes” vote is for the bill.) Sen. Jason Lewis Yes ACCESS TO BIRTH CERTIFICATES (S 2294) Senate 40-0, (House on a voice vote without a roll call), approved and Gov. Baker signed legislation giving equal access to original birth certificates to all persons born in Massachusetts. Under prior law, adoptees born between 1974 and 2008 were unable to obtain original birth certificates without a court BHRC| SEE PAGE 15

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, January 6, 2023 Page 15 BHRC | FROM PAGE 14 order that also unseals their record. The measure closes this gap and allows adopted individuals over the age of 18 or the adoptive parents of a child under 18 to access the adoptee’s original birth certificate without the unsealing of the information. “The Joint Committee on Public Health heard powerful testimony from adoptees who could not access their original birth certificate due to a current loophole in state law addressed by this legislation,” said Sen. Jo Comerford (D-Northampton), Senate Chair of the Committee on Public Health. “The Senate took a major step in assuring equality by guaranteeing that all adoptees, regardless of when they were born, will have access to their original birth certificate,” said Sen. Anne Gobi (D-Spencer), sponsor of the bill. She noted that she has waited six years for its passage and that so many have waited their entire lives. “We tell them the wait is over and they matter,” said Gobi. “Many adoptees have been waiting their whole lives to learn their history, and I am honored to have played a part in helping them access their original birth certificates,” said Sen. Joan Lovely (D-Salem). “For the sake of preserving our health and well-being, it is crucial to know what physical or mental health conditions to which we may be predisposed. By giving all adoptees born in Massachusetts access to their original birth certificates, this legislation closes a 34-year gap granting generations of individuals medical knowledge they have otherwise been denied.” (A "Yes" vote is for the bill.) Sen. Jason Lewis Yes ACCESS TO MENTAL HEALTH CARE (S 3097) Senate 39-0, (House on a voice vote without a roll call), approved and Gov. Bakersigned into law a bill designed to make mental health care more accessible in the Bay State. Provisions include mandating coverage for an annual mental health wellness exam, comparable to an annual physical; a public awareness campaign on the state’s red flag laws that limit access to guns for people at risk of hurting themselves or others; implementation of the nationwide 988 hotline to access 24/7 suicide prevention and behavioral health crisis services; mandating coverage and eliminating prior authorization for mental health acute treatment and stabilization services for adults and children; establishing an Office of Behavioral Health Promotion to coordinate all state initiatives that promote mental, emotional and behavioral health and wellness for residents; and creating an interim licensure level for licensed mental health counselors so that they can be reimbursed by insurance for their services and be eligible for state and federal grant and loan forgiveness programs. “The Massachusetts Legislature took vital strides toward transforming mental health care in Massachusetts,” said Sen. Julian Cyr (D-Truro), Senate chair of the Committee on Mental Health, Substance Use and Recovery. “By unanimously passing the Mental Health ABC Act, we affirm that mental health is just as essential as physical health and take a leap forward to ensure that all people in Massachusetts can access the mental health care they need and deserve.” “Too many people in communities across the commonwealth struggle to get the mental, emotional and behavioral health care they deserve,” said Rep. Adrian Madaro (D-Boston), House Chair of the Joint Committee on Mental Health, Substance Use and Recovery. “This legislation helps reduce barriers to resources, support, and treatment residents need for their overall wellbeing. It enables enforcement of existing parity laws, enhances emergency response services and acute psychiatric care, develops programs to strengthen the workforce and invests in mental health. Importantly, our legislation also creates initiatives to address the unique mental health needs of young people. This legislation is the first step in addressing the structural deficits in our mental health care delivery system by prioritizing the people it serves and the people who make it work.” “The health care system in Massachusetts is only as strong as its weakest link, and for far too long, mental health care has been overlooked and underfunded,” said Sen. Cindy Friedman (D-Arlington), Senate Chair of theCommittee on Health Care Financing. “This legislation confronts this reality with the most comprehensive mental health care legislation the commonwealth has seen in recent years, and it builds off of the historic investments we made in this care system over this past twoyear legislative session. Of particular importance to me, this bill will finally provide the state the tools it needs to enforce existing mental health parity laws and it will address the emergency department boarding crisis that’s impacting too many of our children and their families. I have long believed that Massachusetts should deliver affordable, high quality, and accessible care to its residents, and this includes mental health care.” (A “Yes” vote is for the bill.) Sen. Jason Lewis Yes ALSO UP ON BEACON HILL PAY HIKES FOR LEGISLATORS, MAURA HEALEY AND OTHERS – The governor, lt. governor, treasurer, secretary of state, attorney general, auditor, 40 senators and 160 representatives will all receive pay raises when they assume office on January 3, 2023. Here’s how it all went down last week: Outgoing Gov. Charlie Baker announced that the 200 members of the Legislature will receive a 4.42 percent pay hike for the 2023-2024 legislative session that begins January 3, 2023. The hike will increase the base salary of each senator and representative by $3,117 per year— from the current $70,537 to $73,654. The total cost of the hike for all 200 legislators is $623,400 per year. Baker is required under the state constitution to determine the amount of a pay raise or cut that state legislators would receive for the 2023-2024 session. All Massachusetts governors are obligated to increase or decrease legislative salaries biennially under the terms of a constitutional amendment approved by the voters in 1998. The amendment, approved by a better than two-to-one margin, requires legislative salaries to be "increased or decreased at the same rate as increases or decreases in the median household income for the commonwealth for the preceding twoyear period, as ascertained by the governor.” Looking back, legislators’ salaries were increased by $4,280 per year for the 2021-2022 legislative session, $3,709 per year for the 2019-2020 legislative session and $2,525 per year for the 2017-2018 session. Those hikes came on the heels of a salary freeze for the 2015-2016 legislative session, a $1,100 pay cut for the 2013-2014 session and a $306 pay cut for the 2011-2012 session. Prior to 2011, legislators' salaries had been raised every two years since the pre-constitutional amendment base pay of $46,410 in 1998. The new $73,654 salary means the 1998 legislative salary of $46,410 has been raised $27,244 or 58.7 percent. In the meantime, a second pay hike for close to 70 percent of the state’s 200 legislators also takes effect January 3. Currently an estimated 139, or almost 70 percent, of the state's 200 legislators receive a stipend for their service in Democratic or Republican leadership positions, as committee chairs or vice chairs and as the ranking Republican on some committees. All 40 senators and 99 of the 160 representatives receive this bonus pay which currently ranges from $17,039 to $90,876. Legislation approved by the Legislature in 2017 requires that every two years the stipends of these 139 legislators be increased or decreased based on data from the Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) that measures the quarterly change in salaries and wages. That formula will raise the stipend in 2023 for all of these 139 legislators. The biggest hike goes to House Speaker Ron Mariano and Senate President Karen Spilka’s whose salaries will rise from $178,473 to more than $214,000. And there’s more. The 2017 law also requires that every two years the salaries of the governor and the other five constitutional statewide officers be increased or decreased based on the same data from the BEA. Incoming Gov. Healey’s salary will increase by $37,185 above Baker's current $185,000 salary for a total of $222,185. Healey also will receive the governor's standard $65,000 housing allowance bringing her total annual compensation $287,185 in 2023. Incoming Lt. Governor Kim Driscoll’s pay will increase by $33.165-- from $165,000 to $198,165 under the 2017 law. Supporters defend the hikes noting that voters themselves in 1998 approved the adjustment for all future legislators every two years and that two independent commissions had recommended many of the other hikes in 2017.They say that pay raises of any type are always the subject of disagreement. They note it is important to pay government officials a salary adequate enough to enable a family breadwinner or a professional to run for the office and serve. Critics of the hikes were quick to respond. “It appears the first act the Legislature and Statehouse leaders are set to take after the narrow passage of Question 1 is to accept a 20 percent pay raise,” said Paul Craney, spokesman for Massachusetts Fiscal Alliance. “Voters were told the 80 percent income tax hike in Question 1 would go to education and transportation needs but Statehouse leaders are taking care of themselves before anyone else with their largest pay raise since 2017. Question 1 is set to raise taxes … and for many small business owners, retirees, home sales and high-income earners, they will be shocked to see their taxes go up by 80 percent.” 4 PERCENT INCOME TAX HIKE ON EARNINGS OVER $1 MILLION ANNUALLY TAKES EFFECT JANUARY 1 – Beginning with 2023 earnings, taxpayers who earn more than $1 million annually will pay an additional 4 percent income tax, in addition to the current flat 5 percent one, on their earnings of more than $1 million annually. Language in this new constitutional amendment, approved as Question 1 by voters in November 2022, requires that “subject to appropriation” the revenue will go to fund quality public education, affordable public colleges and universities and for the repair and maintenance of roads, bridges and public transportation. “Our coalition of community organizations, faith-based groups, and labor unions is committed to protecting the will of the people as expressed through Question 1: higher taxes on those who can most afford them, and greater investment in transportation and public education across the state,” said Steve Crawford, spokesman for Raise Up Massachusetts, the group that spearheaded the Vote Yes on Question 1 campaign and promoted the question as the Fair Share Amendment. “We will work with state leaders to ensure that the new revenue from the Fair Share Amendment is directed toward critical investments in our classrooms, campuses and transportation systems. And we will fight any efforts to weaken the Fair Share Amendment by creating new tax breaks, avoidance schemes or giveaways for the ultra-rich.” “For some taxpayers, Question 1 will mean an 80 percent increase to their state income tax,” said Paul Craney, spokesman for the Mass Fiscal Alliance. “The taxpayers that will be impacted by this are small business owners, retirees, home sales and high-income earners. The only appropriate response by the speaker, Senate president and Governor Elect Maura Healey is to support broad tax cuts and tax eliminations that everyone will benefit from. Massachusetts is on the verge of returning to the days of Taxachusetts unless these broad tax cuts are adopted and they must be done so very quickly because the negative impacts associated from Question 1 will not wait.” REVENGE PORN (S 3167) - Senate approved a proposal that would prohibit the posting of sexually explicit images of another person online without their permission—commonly referred to as “revenge porn.” The practice is often used by ex-spouses or ex-partners. Massachusetts is one of only two states that does not have a law about this crime. Another provision changes current law under which minors, under 18 years of age, who BHRC| SEE PAGE 16

Page 16 BHRC | FROM PAGE 15 share explicit images of themselves or other minors can be charged with violating Massachusetts child pornography laws and are required to register with the Sex Offender Registry. The bill allows minors to be diverted to an educational program that would provide them with information about the consequences of posting or transmitting indecent visual depictions of minors. Sen. Jamie Eldridge (D-Acton), the Senate chair of the Judiciary Committee, said the bill addresses the highly charged subjects of juvenile sexting and revenge porn. “I'm pleased that the Senate is taking action on a unified bill this week,” said Eldridge. “I commend the victims for their passionate advocacy and applaud their courage in coming forward to tell their stories.” “Under current law, when faced with an incident of sexting among teenagers, the police are forced with either charging them with a felony or doing nothing,” said sponsor Rep. Jeff Roy (D-Franklin). “The bill … provides law enforcement officers with a middle ground that will allow them to educate kids about the consequences of their actions without ruining their lives. It will have a tremendous impact on people who have become entangled in the web and transmittal of images that can cause traumatic and lifetime harm through a diversion program that will educate them about the legal and personal consequences of ‘sexting.’” The House approved a different version of the measure in May. The Senate version now goes to the House for consideration. THEFT OF CATALYTIC CONVERTERS (S 3169) – The House approved and sent to the Senate a bill that would create a “chain of custody” for used catalytic converter sales. A catalytic converter is a device that converts the environmentally hazardous exhaust emitted by a vehicle’s engine into less harmful gasses. The measure requires the buyer to keep records of each converter purchased, from which vehicle it was removed from and who the seller was. These records would be made available upon request to law enforcement. Supporters explained that several communities have seen a rise in catalytic converter thefts because the converters use platinum, palladium or rhodium to operate. According to the National Insurance Crime Bureau, the values of these precious THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, January 6, 2023 metals contained inside catalytic converters have skyrocketed and is staggering. As of March 2022, rhodium is valued at $20,000 per ounce; palladium at $2,938 per ounce; and platinum at $1,128 per ounce. For thieves, this means a catalytic converter might be a better score than the average wedding band or gold watch. “Many scrapyards and black-market buyers have an open call out for catalytic converters, which they turn around and sell to metal recyclers,” says the Cavallo and Signoriello Insurance Agency in Massachusetts. “Ten years ago, a thief could earn between $20 and $200 per stolen converter. Today, thanks to the spike in the value of these metals, that range is more like $300 to $850, for just a few minutes of work." “Catalytic theft is an epidemic,” said House sponsor Rep. Steve Howitt (R-Seekonk). “It is not only very costly to the vehicle owner, if they do not have comprehensive insurance, it creates an inconvenience to have repairs done. This bill would try to tighten up the market in Massachusetts for these thieves to pawn their stolen goods.” The House approved a different version of the measure in October. The Senate version now goes to the House for consideration. MINIMUM WAGE HIKE FROM $14.25 TO $15 PER HOUR EFFECTIVE JANUARY 1 – Effective January 1, 2023 the state’s minimum wage rises from $14.25 per hour to $15 per hour. This hike is the final one of five annual increases mandated by a law passed in 2018 that has brough the minimum wage from $11 per hour in 2018 to the current $15 per hour. In addition, the minimum wage for tipped workers will increase from $6.15 per hour to $6.75 per hour—provided that their tips bring them up to at least $15 per hour. If the total hourly rate for the employee including tips does not equal $15 at the end of a shift, the employer is required to make up the difference. “I’m pleased to see this scheduled increase to our minimum wage go into effect,” said Rep. Josh Cutler (D-Duxbury), House chair of the Labor and Workforce Development Committee. “It is welcome news for many workers, though clearly more help is needed to support hardworking families struggling with rising costs.” “With high inflation, worker shortages and supply chain disruptions, the upcoming minimum wage increase is just the latest challenge for Massachusetts small business owners," said Christopher Carlozzi, the Massachusetts state director of the National Federation of Independent Business. “With the cost of labor rising, the price tag of products and services will also rise, and those costs will likely be passed to consumers. Main Street and consumers need relief but unfortunately this wage hike will only create more uncertainty.” “It's time for a truly universal minimum wage that keeps up with rising costs and supports working families,” said Chrissy Lynch, Chief of Staff of the Massachusetts AFL-CIO. “Our coalition of community organizations, faith-based groups and labor unions is looking at how to get us closer to that goal. And we won’t stop until working people across the state have true living wages.” “While it’s important to help those who are most vulnerable, an increase to the state minimum wage rate actually does the opposite,” said Paul Craney, Executive Director of the Massachusetts Fiscal Alliance. “Massachusetts will have the highest minimum wage rate of all the states in New England. This will further incentivize retail chains to continue to automate BHRC| SEE PAGE 20

The DMA would bring suit against the estate’s executor or administrator in a court of competent jurisdiction. The DMA’s chosen forum is the Boston Municipal Court. Previous proposed legislation T he MassHealth estate recovery claim is a creature of state and federal statute and regulation. Because such claims arise and are enforced under Massachusetts law by the state’s Division of Medical Assistance, state law and administrative practices are of much concern to the general public and to elder law attorneys. The Massachusetts statute specifies that the state shall recover all MassHealth (Medicaid) benefits paid on a recipient’s behalf where the recipient was age 55 or over as of the time of receipt and the services were provided after October 1, 1993. Federal law mandates such recovery as the federal government reimburses the Commonwealth of Massachusetts approximately 50 cents for every dollar expended for such benefits. Massachusetts will recoup all MassHealth benefits paid on the recipient’s behalf, regardless of the service for which it was paid and regardless of whether the recipient lived in the community or was institutionalized in a long-term care facility. It is irrelevant whether the payments were for nursing home care, prescription drugs, hospitalization for a particular illness, a Medicare co-payment for an indigent elder picked up by MassHealth or visiting nurse services to keep the elder at home. Since 1989, the general rule in Massachusetts has been that a creditor of the estate must bring his or her claim by filing suit within one year of the decedent’s death, or the claim is barred. Even after the year has passed, however, the Division of Medical Assistance (DMA) can still protect its claim by filing it within four months of the fiduciary’s appointment. In short, the crucial deadline for Medicaid claims is the later of one year from the date of by the Romney administration had sought to expand estate recovery to include assets beyond the decedent’s probate estate. The law has been that only assets that were in the MassHealth recipient’s name at the time of his or her death were subject to estate recovery (i.e. the recipient’s probate estate). The Romney administration attempted to expand estate recovery to include virtually all property interests possessed by the MassHealth recipient at the time of his or her death such as life insurance, life estates, jointly owned property, living trusts, tenants by the entirety, IRA’s, 401(k)’s, etc. Those attempted expanded recovery rules were slated to take effect on January 1, 2004. Subsequently, the state legislature delayed implementation until July 1 of that year as a result of heightened pressure from many elder lobbyist groups, the Mass Chapter of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys and the elderly population itself. Then, our state legislature went a step further by repealing the expanded estate recovery provisions altogether. Expanded estate recovery is not law today in Massachusetts. It is still very important to keep in mind that you should try to avoid probate if at all possible. Even an untimely death at a younger age might lead to a massive estate recovery claim against your probate estate if you had been receiving MassHealth benefits after having reached 55 years of age. At the present time, expanded estate recovery is not on the horizon. That’s a good thing insofar as asset protection is concerned. Nonetheless, dying with a probate estate might result in much more than the cost of probate itself. It could very well result in an obligation for the Personal Representative of the estate to repay a very large lien assessed by the Estate Recovery Unit. Joseph D.

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, January 6, 2023 Page 19 MUSINGS | FROM PAGE 6 17. The farthest I have ever been from home... is being here in the United States. 18. My special talents are... seeing the good in people and putting a smile on their faces. That means the world to me. 19. I have (no) pets. 20. I played sports as a youngster at... Coytemore Lea and Green Street Parks. Shout out to Joe Levine and Malden Rec! Reasons to be cheerful; My recent article honoring the life of Water Wishoski and the neighborhood watering hole he commanded for many years (Mike’s Café) was a big hit for many. Numerous Maldonians commented on Walter and his gentlemanly, no-nonsense demeanor. He was loved by all and by the response to the article, will be missed. Patrick McCarron was one of those that lit up social media with Walter/ Mike’s Café talk: “My father and my uncle, greatest generation guys were regulars at Mike’s throughout the ’60’s, ’70’s, and ’80’s. When I turned 20 me and my pal decided to check Mike’s out. This would turn out to be Ill advised as once I told my father about it, he told me in no uncertain terms to ‘stay the hell out of there.’ I remember that ‘fondly.’ That was their place and that was all there was to it. I still laugh at how mad he got. Those fellows are long gone now but I do remember him mentioning Walter aff ectionately and I even had a few of those cheese on dark rye bar sandwiches when I was a youngster. May he rest in peace. These recollections you write are always enjoyable and important. By the way my pal on the Mike’s adventures was Bill Mini’s son. Bill was another fi ne man you’ve remembered. I miss all of them.” You can never get enough Bob Rotondi. With that said I bring to you, “Diamond Dust” by Bob Rotondi (circa 2012): • Malden High School defeated Medford High in a 1958 baseball game, 7-6 at Pearl Street Stadium. The game went 13 innings with a substitute sophomore, Curt McComis, driving home the deciding run with a ground-rule double. McComis, a left-handed former Little League ace with the Central League Tigers, went on to have an outstanding high school career. • On May 17,1960, Malden High School’s baseball team defeated Chelsea, 1-0, for their seventh straight victory. Malden’s left handed ace Larry Culleton pitched a two-hitter and knocked in the game’s only run with a first inning single. The New York Yankees were in pursuit of Culleton until a sore arm shelved the portsider’s promising career. As Peter Falk’s iconic TV character “Columbo” would say “Just one more thing, sir” – I walked through the Square last week on my way to Cornucopia for a delightful chicken parm sub.

The fabulous vibe the Square now gives off can be felt throughout the eight Wards. You can feel the energy and excitement that the many younger and culturally diverse residents have brought to the area. The infrastructure upgrade was amazing to watch. Combined with the majestic First Baptist Church and the Davenport Estate, you have the perfect combination of old school meets new school. Live music at Face’s & Hugh O’Neill’s. Floramo’s Restaurant. The best PanAsian food on the North Shore at All Season’s Table. Throw in the many gaming establishments that have adopted Malden, and we’ve become the envy of each and every one of our neighbors.

January 6, 2023 aavvyvy S avy avvy S oiorenniioor nior by Jim Miller Simple Home Safety Solutions for Aging-in-Place Dear Savvy Senior, Falls and fi res are the two things I worry most about for my elderly father who lives alone. Do you have any suggestions on what we can do to help keep him safe, and keep an eye on him from afar? Concerned Daughter Dear Concerned, Of course! There are a number of small adjustments and modifi cations you can make to your dad’s home to help protect him from falls and fi res, both of which cause thousands of injuries and deaths each year. Here are some tips to get you started. Eliminate tripping hazards: Since falls are the leading cause of home injury among seniors, a good place to start is to pack away your dad’s throw rugs which are common tripping hazards or use carpet tacks or double-sided tape to secure them. You may also need to adjust your dad’s furniture so there are clear pathways to walk through and position any electrical or phone cords along walls and out of the way. For hardwood steps, consider attaching a nonslip tread to each one to provide traction and help him see the edge. And for added protection in the bathroom buy some nonskid rugs for the fl oors and use adhesive nonslip treads or a mat with rubber suction inside his tub or shower stall. Improve his lighting: Good lighting is essential for safe aging-in-place, so check the wattage ratings on your dad’s lamps and light fi xtures, and install the brightest bulbs allowed, and add supplementary lighting if necessary. You should also purchase some dusk to dawn nightlights for the bathroom and in the hallways that light up when the sun goes down. And mount some motion sensor lights outside the front and back doors and in the driveway that automatically come on when he comes and goes after dark. Get grab bars: These can signifi cantly reduce his risk of bathroom falls. Install them where he enters the shower or tub and on a wall inside the stall, but don’t use grab bars that attach with suction. Instead, have wall-mounted bars put in by someone who can affi x them to the wall studs. It’s also best to choose bars whose surfaces are slightly textured and easier to grip. Ensure railings are stable: Wherever he has steps – stairways, entryways or basements – he needs sturdy railings. Ideally, they should be on both sides of the steps. Prevent cooking fi res: There are several aff ordable products you can purchase to help your dad prevent home cooking fi res like BurnerAlert discs that attach to a stove’s knob and will continuously blink or beep after the stove has been in use for a preset amount of time, and Ome smart knobs that can control a stove’s heating settings from an app. Or you can invest in a more expensive iGuardStove sensor that shuts the stove off when it doesn’t detect motion for fi ve minutes. Install smoke alarms: Install a smart smoke alarm in your dad’s house (buy one for each fl oor) that will alert him when smoke or carbon monoxide is detected. These smart devices will also send alerts to your phone to let you know when a problem is detected. Google Nest and First Alert both smart smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. Add fi re extinguishers: Get portable multipurpose fi re extinguishers for each level of your dad’s house and in the garage. Consider a medical alert: To ensure your dad’s safety and provide you some peace of mind, consider getting him a medical alert device that comes with a wearable SOS button that would allow him to call for help if he were to fall or need assistance. For more tips, get a copy of AARP’s “HomeFit Guide” (see AARP. org/HomeFit), which has more than 100 aging-in-place suggestions that can help make your dad’s home safer and easier to live in.

PO Box 490407, Everett, MA 02149 made, the minimum wage is still insuffi cient to meet the needs of working families, especially amid rising infl ation,” said Beth Kontos, president of the Massachusetts branch of the American Federation of Teachers. “And some workers are still not covered by the minimum wage, including municipal workers who have devoted their lives to public service and deserve more than poverty wages.” INFLAMMATORY BREAST CANCER (H 3147) – The House approved a bill that would establish an Infl ammatory Breast Cancer Awareness Day in Massachusetts, the second Tuesday of every October. “I was thrilled that my colleagues and I were able to pass this very important piece of legislation,” said sponsor Rep. Sean Garballey (D-Arlington). “This designation will go a long way to increase awareness and strengthen efforts to provide education about this rare and aggressive disease. Infl ammatory Breast Cancer is the most aggressive form of breast cancer and the least understood. Many women receiving this diagnosis have never heard of Infl ammatory Breast Cancer or its presentation. Infl ammatory Breast Cancer accounts for 1 percent to 5 percent of all breast cancer cases yet represents 10 percent of all deaths due to breast cancer.” QUOTABLE QUOTES “A goal of the Massachusetts Department of Agricultural Resources is to help keep the state’s food supply safe and secure. By assisting farmers with grants and technical assistance, the Baker-Polito Administration is helping to modernize their operations, open new market channels and meet regulatory requirements that will directly benefi t farmers and consumers of their products.” ---Massachusetts Department of Agricultural Resources Commissioner John Lebeaux announcing $1 million in grants to Massachusetts farms to implement practices that improve food safety within their operations. “Keeping the commonwealth’s workforce safe is important to both employees and employers as well as the greater community. These Safety Grants will provide training and education that helps promote safe and healthy conditions in the workplace.” ---Secretary of Labor and Workforce Development Rosalin Acosta announcing $800,000 in Workplace Safety Grants. All women have a fundamental right to access safe and affordable abortion. But on the Cape and Islands, women have been forced for years to make expensive trips off -Cape or out of state to access abortion services. This funding to Health Imperatives, which has locations on Martha’s Vineyard and Barnstable, breaks down barriers to care and gives women across the Cape and Islands access to this fundamental healthcare right.” ---Rep. Dylan Fernandez (D-Falmouth) on $4.1 million in grants awarded to reproductive health organizations including some on the Cape and Islands.

Our customers had been requesting this ticket for some time.

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 fi led. 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 December 26-30, the House met for a total of 11 hours and 22 minutes and the Senate met for a total of seven hours and 53 minutes. Mon. Dec. 26 No House session No Senate session Tues.Dec. 27 House 11:01 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Senate 11:15 a.m. to 2:13 p.m. Wed. Dec. 28 No House session No Senate session Thurs.
