That was the most apparent takeaway from the results culled from a live survey of Malden citizens who are providing input on what they would like to see offered at such a community-based arts and culture center. A presentation of a snapshot of the early results was made at the meeting of the Malden Center for Arts & Culture Steering Committee held on Wednesday night, virtually, and overseen by Senior Planner and Policy Manager Evan Spetrini of the city’s Office of Strategic Planning and Community Development and Ward 3 Councillor Amanda Linehan, who are co-chairs of the Steering Committee. The meeting was attended by members of the Steering Committee as well as members of the public. Other members of the Steering Committee, who were appointed by Malden Mayor Gary Christenson, are Terlonzo Amos, Naomi Brave, Jenelle DeVits, Yinh Kiefer, Bob Logan, Yu Sin Mok, Erga Pierette, Elizabeth Yvette Ramirez, Dawn Simmons, Hailey Tran and Amora Velic.

Boast made a slide presentation of various pie charts which she said were positive in the sense of support of the project, but described as “somewhat skewed” in the cultural makeup of the respondents, as 69% of those responding identified as English-speaking, and 15% percent as Chinese-speaking. However, the racial identifiJennifer Spadafora School Committee Vice-Chair would acquire the courthouse building and the parking lot across the street, for approximately $480,000, with the intention of transforming it. That acquisition process, which would require state approval, is now underway. The Steering Committee’s task it is develop a business model for the operation of the building. The model will propose a program of uses for the space based on community engagement, according to the Mayor. “This next process is going to represent the biggest challenge in making this goal a reality,” Mayor Christenson said in October. “In talking to other cities, the challenge is always in coming up with a model that is economically viable. The team will continue to work toward that goal, while we move forward on the path with the legislative process.” On Wednesday night, a consultant from the Metropolitan Area Planning Council (MAPC), Emma Boast, presented an overview of the results of a citywide survey she and the MAPC are cation of the respondents was fairly close to the 2020 Census results of this city, with 56% of those responding identifying as White, 19% as Asian and 12% as African American, the latter two categories almost exact percentages of Malden residents counted in the Census for those cultural categories. Still, Boast and Spetrini explained that the survey is still “live” until January 16 and asked those MACC Steering Committee members attending Wednesday’s meeting, who represent various cultural organizations primarily based in Malden, to help “get the word out” about the survey. Spetrini said postcards were being printed and are available this Monday, January 10. He asked if members could pick them up at City Hall and distribute them among their networks, adding that the postcards, like the survey, would be translated into a number of different languages representing Malden’s diversity.

Page 4 THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, January 7, 2022 Minimum wage set to increase as result of 2018 law negotiated by Sen. Lewis and Rep. Brodeur A s a result of the 2018 landmark labor rights law known as the Grand Bargain, the minimum wage in Massachusetts is set to increase to $14.25 per hour on January 1. The minimum wage will increase again, reaching $15 per hour on January 1, 2023. The Grand Bargain law was negotiated by State Senator Jason Lewis and State Representative Paul Brodeur (now the Mayor of Melrose), who served as co-chairs of the legislature’s Labor and Workforce Development committee. They worked closely with stakeholders representing labor and the business community in the Commonwealth to negotiate and pass this important legislation. “I’m proud to have helped lead the eff ort along with Representative Brodeur to pass legislation in 2018 that continues to improve the lives of hundreds of thousands of Bay State residents,” said Senator Lewis. “Increasing the minimum wage to ANGELO’S FULL SERVICE Regular Unleaded $3.239 MidUnleaded $3.299 Super $3.419 Diesel Fuel $3.379 "43 Years of Excellence!" 1978-2021 KERO $4.81 DEF $3.49 9 Diesel $3.099 9 HEATING OIL 24-Hour Burner Service Call for Current Price!

The fi nal bill received bipartisan support in the legislature and was signed into law by Governor Baker. The wage increase will occur amidst a surge of infl ation, helping one million workers in the Commonwealth and their families meet their basic needs.” In addition to raising the minimum wage, the Grand Bargain law also created a new universal paid family and medical leave program in Massachusetts. This program entitles most workers to take up to 12 weeks of job-protected, paid leave to care for a new baby or sick family member, and up to 20 weeks of job-protected, paid leave to recover from one’s own serious illness or injury. Increases in the minimum Jason Lewis State Senator wage have been shown to stimulate consumer spending, improve worker productivity and reduce employee turnover. Malden Police Dept. receives $95K grant for body cams By Christopher Roberson he Malden Police Department recently received $95,024 from the state to purchase body cameras for its offi cers. “Every day, Malden Police offi cers respond to a variety of situations and circumstances that require a vast array of knowledge, skills and resources,” said Police Chief Kevin Molis. “The use of body cameras will document the great and oftentimes heroic work that our officers perform on a regular basis in a way that is lasting and transparent. I can also say with great confi dence that it will reveal how fortunate the people of Malden are to be served by our offi cers in a city that truly cares not only in words but in its actions.” In addition, bringing body cameras to Malden has been a priority for Mayor Gary Christenson. “Body worn cameras are a crucial step forward as we continue to build on our Police Department’s commitment to increase transparency and enhance public safety,” he said. The allocation is part of a $4 million push from the Baker-Polito Administration, which distributed funding for body cameras to 64 police departments across the state. The grants are the fi rst wave in an even larger $20 million capital grant program which will fund the purchase of 9,000 body cameras during the next fi ve years. “We are glad to provide communities with these resources for body-worn camera programs, because they improve public safety, strengthen community-police relations, and enhance the values of transparency and accountability,” said Governor Charlie Baker. “This technology off ers municipalities a valuable tool in support of municipal police in their eff orts to ensure public safety and transparency in their communities.” According to a recent poll from the Massachusetts Chiefs of Police Association, 75 percent of police departments are interested in having body cameras. However, only 10 percent of municipal police departments have them. “The Administration is pleased to partner with local law enforcement agencies to provide the resources and technology needed to improve public safety and nurture strong relationships with the communities they serve,” said Lieutenant Governor Karyn Polito.

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, January 7, 2022 Page 5 SPADAFORA | FROM PAGE 1 ducting the weekly City Council meetings, the Council President also appoints Council colleagues to the various committees where a lot of debate and decision-making is undertaken before issues are brought to a vote of the full Council. The Council President also determines the chairperson and vice-chairperson of the committees. Council committees run the gamut from the key committees such as Rules and Ordinance Committee and Finance Committee, to ad hoc committees which have a more specific, singular focus. Spadafora was elected as Council President on a 6-5 vote by his colleagues. Also a candidate for the post was third-term Councillor Stephen Winslow, who was nominated for election by Ward 3 Councillor Amanda Linehan. Winslow was elected to a twoyear term as Ward 6 City Councillor this past November, replacing David Camell, who did not run for re-election. Winslow had served two terms as Councillor-at-Large, elected in 2017 and 2019, but choosing in this past election not to seek re-election as Councillor-at-Large, but to successfully pursue the Ward 6 open seat. Voting for Spadafora as Council President were Ward 1 Councillor Peg Crowe, Ward 2 CouncilSCHOOLS | FROM PAGE 2 shops in various artistic pursuits, such as pottery, crafting and digital/graphic printing as well as attending live performances. One part of the presentation on Wednesday was a touchpoint on potential revenue sources as part of the future business model. Boast described space rental at three examples of existing arts centers, the Foundry in Cambridge, Pao Arts Center in Boston, and the Boston Center for the Arts, indicating that this may be a future path to consider in Malden. Spetrini and Boast explained there was much work left to be done, but noted a timetable in play. “We would like to have out survey completed and the results ready to be discussed at our February meeting. We want to make one last push to get more respondents,” Spetrini said. “There was a question about potentially extending the deadline (past Jan. 16), but we do have a tight timeline.” **** Ward 3’s Jennifer Spadafora named Vice-Chair of Malden School Committee Ward 3 School Committee lor Paul Condon, Ward 5 Councillor Barbara Murphy, Ward 7 Councillor Chris Simonelli, Ward 8 Councillor Jadeane Sica. Councillor Spadafora voted for himself as well. Voting for Winslow were Ward 3 Councillor Amanda Linehan, Ward 4 Councillor Ryan O'Malley, Councillor-at-Large Carey McDonald and Councillor-at-Large Karen Hayes. Councillor Winslow also voted for himself. The recess (and meeting), which was held in a classroom adjacent to the Jenkins Auditorium at Malden High School, lasted just over one hour, concluding in the vote in favor of Spadafora. The meeting was open to the public and carried virtually, via the Zoom format. In the course of the meeting, one Councillor suggested a vote be taken at the outset of the meeting, without much discourse. However, other Councillors asked that each of the two candidates, Spadafora and Winslow, discuss their intentions in seeking the Council Presidency. Each spoke for about 10-15 minutes before the vote was taken. New Council President Spadafora is expected to announce his Council Committee appointments, including naming chairpersons, by the end of this week. The fi rst City Council meeting is expected to be held on Member Jennifer Spadafora was announced Monday night as the new Vice-Chair of the Malden School Committee. Spadafora will replace outgoing longtime Vice-Chair Leonard Iovino, who served over 25 years on the School Committee, representing Ward 4, but did not seek reelection this past fall. School Committeewoman Spadafora was reelected to her third term on the board this past fall, running unopposed. This past term, Spadafora chaired the School Committee’s Budget Subcommittee and was also active in her advocacy for Malden Public Schools’ special education students. She was sworn in at Monday’s 2022 Inaugural Ceremony along with her colleagues. A special School Committee meeting was held during a planned recess in the Inaugural Ceremony during which the vote was taken. A special Malden City Council meeting was being taken at the same time to choose a City Council President (see separate story). Malden City Clerk Greg Lucey announced Spadafora as the new Vice-Chair of the School Committee following the approximately one-hour long recess. Spadafora’s term of Vice-Chair is for both years of her elected term, the 2022 and 2023 years. Tuesday evening, January 11 at 7:00 p.m. In a related matter, Mayor Gary Christenson and Malden Health Director Chris Webb announced that as of Monday, January 10, all City Council, School Committee and other board and commission meetings moving forward would be held virtually in Zoom format, until further notice. In an Executive Directive released on Tuesday (see separate story), the two city leaders cited the spike in COVID-19 cases in Malden and the area and the high transmissibility related to the virus' omicron variant as the chief reason.

Page 8 THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, January 7, 2022 MASK | FROM PAGE 1 dates for just municipal buildings. Mandatory mask-wearing was already in effect since Sept. 1, 2021, in the Malden Public School (which are also municipal buildings) by vote of the Malden School Committee, since schools reopened to full, in-person learning for all students for the 2021-2022 school year. Also going into effect will be a return to the remote-only public meeting policy via the Zoom platform, also due to the COVID-19 spike. For much of this year, nearly every City of Malden meeting has returned to in-person parameters, using established federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), state and local Malden Board of Health protocols. Mask-wearing had already been mandated by the City of Malden for those and other meetings inside municipal buildings. But as of Monday, all Malden City Council, School Committee and other board and commission meetings will go back to the remote-only Zoom format. That format was in place for city meetings from the time the COVID-19 pandemic was declared in spring of 2020 through the entirety of 2020 and into 2021. Following is the exact wording of the Executive Order governing mandatory mask-wearing and municipal meetings. 1. PUBLIC MEETINGS: All community/public meetings including City Council and Boards and Commissions meetings will be conducted remotely through ZOOM, starting Monday, January 10, 2022 and until further notice. This is in line with Governor Baker’s legislation which provides for remote meetings of public bodies up until April 20, 2022. 2. MASKS: a) Any persons over the age of two (2) or older shall be required to cover their nose or mouth with a mask or face covering (i.e. disposable mask, cloth Mayor Gary Christenson and Malden Health Director Chris Webb issued a joint directive on Tuesday mandating the use of facemasks for all people when indoors in a public setting, including at restaurants, supermarkets, fitness centers and event venues. Masks were already required for those inside municipal buildings. (Courtesy Photo) mask, face shield, scarf) when in or at any indoor public location, except where a person is unable to wear a mask or face covering due to a medical condition. This requirement applies to all workers or customers of a business or other organization open to the public, including but not limited to all retail establishments, fitness centers, restaurants, bars, grocery stores, event venues, private/social clubs and municipal buildings. This section does not apply to informal gatherings at private residences. b.) All businesses and other establishments open to the public must post a notice at entry requiring those entering to wear a face-covering or mask. Restaurant and indoor bar customers may remove masks when they are actively eating or drinking. c.) All reasonable efforts will be made to secure voluntary compliance with the Order, however violations of the order may result in a fine of up to $200 per violation, in a manner provided for non-criminal disposition of violations of city ordinances or regulation pursuant to M.G.L. Chapter 40, Section 21 D.

Furthermore, the City of Malden will delay renovation plans for Trafton Park for a year as an alternative to the MVRCS proposal to demolish the buildings to provide play space during the renovation. Each day, hundreds of students use the park for outdoor recreation and recess activities. “This is an important topic for our residents. Finding an acceptable solution starts with open and honest communication,” said Christenson. “The residents of Malden need to know we are working together. This agreement addresses several key concerns and sets the stage for us to identify a solution that works for everyone.” “This agreement helps keep the status quo in place for businesses while seeking to ultimately ensure the viability and character of Maplewood Square as a neighborhood business district. I want to thank the Malden Historical Commission for being open minded to this alternative approach to achieve the mutually desired goals of preserving both the historic character and uses of the Square,” said Winslow. “I’m pleased we are collectively committed to working together on this important issue,” said MVRCS Board of Trustees Chair George Warren. “I specifically want to thank Mayor Christenson for reaching out to Mystic Valley and Councilor Winslow for their efforts to construct this agreement and committing to continued dialogue, while providing Mystic Valley students the ability to continue to access outdoor recreation space while we explore other alternatives. I look forward to what I know will be a mutual commitment to find a solution that meets everyone’s needs.”

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, January 7, 2022 Page 9 Malden schools managing return to school after break despite COVID-19 surge Superintendent, administrators distribute thousands of Rapid at-home test kits By Steve Freker T he Malden Public Schools distributed — at no charge— over 5,000 at-home, rapid COVID-19 tests before students went home for the Winter Break and followed up with another round given out Tuesday night to caregivers and other Malden citizens. Altogether, close to 8,000 test kits were distributed. Before the weekend, several hundred more were made available for Malden schools staff members and students, just before the return. Mayor Gary Christenson, School Committee members including Adam Weldai of Ward 5, as well as members of the Central Offi ce staff , including Supt. Noriega-Murphy, have been on the front lines distributing test kits themselves to drive-up sites at the Salemwood School. The surge of the COVID-19 virus, largely due to the transmissibility caused by the omicron variant, has fueled the importance of testing for students and staff . While the Malden Public Schools has seen an increase in staff and student absences due Supt. Ligia Noriega-Murphy to the COVID-19 surge, due to either positive cases or close contact cautions, Malden schools have been hit far less than other communities either in the great Boston area and in the city of Boston itself. Superintendent of Schools Dr. Ligia Noriega-Murphy and her administrative team have been handling the situation this week and according to reports, only about 10 percent staff members and from 15-to-20 percent of students have been absent from school on average days this week. In Boston, for instance, the staff absenteeism has been cited at close to 25 percent and student absences 25-35 percent Hearts, Hugs & Hope: An Alzheimer’s Support Group at Forestdale Park January 27, 2022, 5:00 pm, at Forestdale Park Assisted Living and Memory Care Community, 341 Forest Street, Malden.

Page 10 THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, January 7, 2022 INAUGURAL | FROM PAGE 1 right away explained that the evening’s affair would still feature the official swearing-in ceremony for members of the Malden City Council and Malden School Committee – minus some of the traditional “pomp” and Malden glitz – that customarily comes on this night. The entire ceremony was livestreamed in real time on the City of Malden’s Facebook page for those who wished to view it from their homes or their devices. The Mayor took the opportunity to commend and acknowledge the value and sacrifices of the community during the COVID-19 pandemic – now beginning its third year – which led to the scaled-down version of the Inaugural Ceremony. “While the challenges continue, the resolve of our community remains,” Mayor Christenson said, thanking those who were being sworn in for their service, along with family, friends and supporters attending either in person or virtually. “I thank the community of Malden for working collaboratively in this once-in-a-lifetime pandemic to help keep us safe and moving forward,” Mayor Christenson added. In a substantive change from traditional ceremonies, in a bow to the first Inauguration since the COVID-19 pandemic was declared in 2020, all of the City Councillors and School Committee members were sworn in on the stage – individually – by City Clerk Greg Lucey. In previous election years, all of those to be sworn in were seated together on stage. One-by-one the elected officials were called up, bereft of the “traditional tuxedos” and evening gowns, but many of the men wore gray business suits. Some officials appeared alone to take the oaths, others were accompanied by spouses, parents or other family members or friends. Sworn in Monday night were City Councillors Karen Colón Hayes (at-large), Carey McDonald (at-large), Craig Spadafora (at-large), Peg Crowe (Ward 1), Paul Condon (Ward 2), Amanda Linehan (Ward 3), Ryan O’Malley The Foundation Trust Challenge Match to Support Bread of Life’s Backpack Nutrition Program J Mayor Gary Christenson addresses the attendees at the 2022 Inaugural Ceremonies of Malden City Government at the MHS Jenkins Auditorium on Monday. (Ward 4), Barbara Murphy (Ward 5), Stephen Winslow (Ward 6), Chris Simonelli (Ward 7) and Jadeane Sica (Ward 8). Councillors Colón Hayes, McDonald and Simonelli are new to the City Council; all the other Councillors were reelected in November. Sworn in to the Malden School Committee were Michael Drummey (Ward 1), Robert McCarthy Jr. (Ward 2), Jennifer Spadafora (Ward 3), Dawn Macklin (Ward 4), Adam Weldai (Ward 5), Joseph Gray (Ward 6), Keith Bernard (Ward 7) and Sharon Rose Zeiberg (Ward 8). Macklin, Bernard and Zeiberg are new to the School Committee; all the other members were reelected in November. After a recess in the ceremony after both municipal body members were sworn in, City Clerk Greg Lucey announced that Councillor Craig Spadafora had been elected City Council President for 2022 and School Committee Member Jennifer Spadafora had been elected Vice-Chair of the School Committee for 2022 and 2023. Near the conclusion of the ceremony, Clerk Lucey presented commemorative plaques to the outgoing City Councillors (David Camell, Ward 6; Neal Anderson, Ward 7; and Debbie DeMaria, at-large) and outgoing School Committee members (Leonard Iovino, Ward 4; Michelle Luong, Ward 7; and John Froio, Ward 8). “Of all the elected officials I have dealt with, there is just something incredibly special about the way you handle yourself and the duties of City Councillor and Council President,” Lucey said to Anderson on the stage. “Everyone you have worked with has so much respect for you.” “It has been an honor to have been able to serve you,” Councillor Anderson, who served for 28 years, one of the longest service tenures in Malden history, told the audience before he departed for the last time. “I am so happy for all of you who have pledged your service this evening and I know the city of Malden is in good hands moving forward.” anuary 10, 2022-The Foundation Trust is offering a challenge match to help support the expansion of Bread of Life’s Backpack Nutrition Program.

Bread of Life works with school principals and guidance counselors who identify students struggling with poverty and food insecurity and distribute the backpacks. Backpack Items include snacks, juice boxes, crackers, peanut butter, cereal, milk boxes, noodle bowls, and other non-perishable food items. Bread of Life also provides blankets, gloves, hats, socks, hand warmers, towels, toothbrushes and other supplies as needed. With the support of the Foundation Trust, over 5,000 backpacks have been distributed to Everett students to date. "It's disturbing to think about the financial strain some parents are under week after week to pay bills and make sure their kids are fed; the nutrition backpacks put good nutrition into the hands of the kids at school and help the rest of the family at home," said Gabriella Snyder Stelmack, Bread of Life Executive Director. "We are extremely grateful that The Foundation Trust is providing the challenge grant to grow this program." Dr. Joseph Spinazzola, Foundation Trust Executive Director noted that “we started this partnership with Bread of Life before the pandemic started, and unfortunately the need for the backpacks has grown considerably since that time. Bread of Life has risen to the challenge, and we are honored to be a small part of their tremendous work addressing food insecurity in our communities. Through this Challenge Match, we hope to assist Bread of Life in establishing lasting partnerships with individuals, families, and local businesses in Everett and the surrounding communities to ensure the sustainability of this vital program for years to come.” About Bread of Life Bread of Life Bread of Life is a free food program based in Malden, MA, that serves the communities north of Boston with evening meals four nights a week, two food pantries, grocery delivery to senior citizens, food delivery to homeless families sheltered in local motels and a Backpack Nutrition Program for Everett students. www.breadoflifemalden.org About The Foundation Trust The Foundation Trust is a private operating foundation that partners with small to medium-sized New England nonprofits on new programming to better serve high-risk populations and elevate underrepresented communities.

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, January 7, 2022 Page 11 Malden musician joins barrier-breaking performance at Symphony Hall on Jan. 23 N ew England–based Me2/ (“me, too”), a classical music organization created for musicians living with mental illnesses and the people who support them, will bring together 100 of its regional players for “Stigma-Free at Symphony Hall,” a concert for audience members with mental illnesses and their allies that is open to all. The concert, which will be performed on January 23 at Boston’s Symphony Hall, marks Me2/’s 10th year and is free to all. Reservations can be made at bso.org/events/ me2-orchestra. The players will come from Me2/ outposts in Massachusetts, Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont and include Malden musician Victoria Wang playing the violin. Some players will share onstage personal stories of navigating their illness, and their musical journeys. Me2/ Cofounder/Executive Director Caroline Whiddon says a more welcoming approach to people with mental illness is timely, considering psychological impacts of the pandemic and the broader conversation it raised about acknowledging mental health needs in America. Whiddon said half of Me2/’s musicians live with a diagnosis: bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, obsessive-compulsive disorder, trauma, depression, addiction or anxiety. “From a social justice and inclusion standpoint,” she said. “It’s powerful for audience members to be free of traditional expectations at a classical music concert, and to see people like themselves on stage.” Whiddon said the group works to create stigma-free zones in its own rehearsals, backstage and at other gatherings, so offering the same for audience members was a natural step. She notes that some people living with mental illnesses, such as bipolar disorder, PTSD or addiction, might have anxiety about the expectations around attending classical music performances. “We plan to make everyone comfortable at this performance by taking the pressure off the experience of attending a concert,” Whiddon said. “Our philosophy is ‘come any way you can,’ ‘be who you are’ and ‘do what you need to do while SYMPHONY HALL| SEE PAGE 17 Northeast Metro Tech School Building Project Zoom Meetings planned for Jan. 12 and 19 Key vote on funding across 12-member district, including Malden, Revere and Saugus, set for Jan. 25 A bove is an artist's rendering of the proposed new school building.

All eight member schools in the GBL, of which Revere, Malden and Everett are included, are subject to the suspension. Barring an extension of the timeframe, competitions are set to resume on Tuesday the 11th. In a statement released Monday, the league expressed its hope that the halt will only be temporary. "It is the hope of league officials that this stoppage will allow our member schools to focus on policies and procedures for all student-athletes and coaches, to ensure that we can continue to provide the safest possible environment for competitors," the statement read. "Each district will create their own policy specific to spectators at competitions. The visiting team will adhere to the host team's spectator policy." Everett’s Clerveaux named MVP on 2021 GBL Football All-Star Team Tide’s DiLoreto is ‘Coach of Year’; 8 Everett players, 5 from Revere & 2 from Malden selected as GBL All-Stars By Steve Freker T hey rolled through the Greater Boston League (GBL) portion of their 2021 schedule like “Grave Digger” in the Monster Jam Truck Series. It was not pretty as Everett High football demolished its GBL competition for six straight weeks, with every game but one decided before the halftime break and the sixth one over just two possessions into the third quarter. Everett and second-year Head Coach Rob DiLoreto captured its 26th GBL crown in the past 30 seasons and outscored its six league opponents, 244-17. After such a season-long onslaught, it is not surprising that league honors were heaped high on the Crimson Tide at season’s end. Record-setting senior running back J.C. Clerveaux, who finished second in the state in scoring among all Division 1 players, was named the 2021 Greater Boston League Most Valuable Player. Clerveaux scored 16 touchdowns and three twopoint conversions to finish with 102 total points. He finished second to Andover High’s Lincoln Beal, who led the state in both touchdowns (25) and points Everett High football Head Coach Rob DiLoreto is GBL 2021 “Coach of the Year.” (158) scored. Clerveaux also rushed for over 1,500 for the season, averaging nearly 10.0 yards every time he carried the ball.

They went undefeated at 6-0 in the league. Everett’s only blemish was a close loss to Methuen in round one of the postseason playoffs. Over the course of his first two seasons at the helm, the first coming this past spring in the Fall 2 makeup season, DiLoreto is 12-1 overall leading Everett’s football fortunes. Justin Desimone Malden HS GBL All-Star Joining their teammate and coach on the GBL All-Star Team for 2021 are a slew of other senior standouts. Also named to the All-Star Team from Everett High were Jayden Biggi, Syeed Gibbs, Cam Mohammed, Jaylen Murphy, Marcus Scott, Moses Seide and Ismael Zamor. Revere High Patriots Football was also well-represented on this year’s GBL All-Star Team. Revere finished second in the GBL behind only Everett with a sparkling 8-2 overall record (5-1 GBL). RHS Head Coach Lou Cicatelli saw five of his Patriots earn spots on the All-Star Team: seniors Elmahdi El Kaouakibi, Max Doucette, Augusto Goncalves, Mark Marchese and Wilmer Rodriguez Mejia. Mackenley Anasthal Malden HS GBL All-Star The third school in The Advocate’s readership area, Malden High School, saw two of its Golden Tornadoes seniors named to the GBL All-Star Team: linebacker Justin DeSimone and defensive back Mackenley Anasthal. Anasthal was a returning starter for first-year Head Coach Witche Exilhomme this season, while Desimone last played for Malden as a freshman in the 2018 season and returned this year to spark the Golden Tornadoes defense. Also named to the GBL All-Star Team this year: Lynn Classical: Nick Costa, Kyle Durant and Brian Vaughn; Lynn English: Wesley Chandler, Jesse Maggs and Nolan Mulcahy; Medford: Isaiah Blake and Alvin Legros; Somerville: Isaiah Wright.

This week, Beacon Hill Roll Call reports on the number of times each representative sided with Gov. Charlie Baker on his 25 vetoes of mostly state budget items in 2021. A two-thirds vote is required to override a gubernatorial veto. In a full 160-member House, the governor needs the support of 54 representatives to sustain a veto when all 160 representatives vote—and fewer votes when some members are absent or a seat is vacant. Baker fell short of that goal as 35 votes was the most support he received on any veto. The House easily overrode all 25 vetoes, including four that were overridden unanimously. It was mostly the 29 GOP members who voted with the Republican governor to sustain creasing number of 20-something American women are reportedly undergoing voluntary sterilization. There is a growing anti-natalist movement in America. Once again, the vital question is: Why? I will offer three explanations that overlap somewhat with what I wrote two years ago: ideological indoctrination, stunted psychological growth, and alienation from God.

What I am saying is that there are sweeping sociological currents in play.) Ideology The opening paragraph of the vetoes but no Republican representative voted with Baker 100 percent of the time. The four GOP members who voted with Baker the most times are Reps. Shawn Dooley (R-Norfolk), 21 times (84.0 percent); Norman Orrall (R-Lakeville), 19 times (76.0 percent); Brad Jones (R-North Reading) and Donald Berthiaume (R-Spencer) who both voted with Baker 18 times (72.0 percent). The three GOP members who supported Baker the least number of times were Rep. Jim Kelcourse (R-Amesbury) who voted with Baker only 12 times (48.0 percent); and Reps. Marc Lombardo (R-Billerica) and David Vieira (R-Falmouth) voted with Baker only 13 times (52.0 percent). The vetoes had little support among the 129 Democrats in the House. One hundred and twenty-five (96.9 percent) did not support the governor even once. The other four (3.1 percent) voted with Baker to sustain only one veto (4.0 percent). They are Reps. Nika Elugardo (D-Jamaica Plain); Chris Markey (D-Dartmouth); Joan Meschino (D-Hull); and David Robertson (D-Tewksbury). NUMBER OF TIMES REPRESENTATIVES SUPPORTED GOV.

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 December 27-31, the House met for a total of 29 minutes and the Senate met for a total of 37 minutes. Mon.

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, January 7, 2022 Page 15 State legislative delegation secures $150K for Malden River Works project S tate Senator Jason Lewis and State Representatives Steven Ultrino, Paul Donato and Kate Lipper-Garabedian recently announced that they have successfully secured $150,000 for the Malden River Works Project. This is part of the COVID-19 pandemic recovery bill passed by the state legislature and partially signed into law by Governor Charlie Baker on December 13, 2021. The funds will be used to support this exciting project, including environmental remediation and climate resilience efforts along the Malden river bank. “I’m thrilled that the Malden legislative delegation was able to work closely together to secure this funding for such a worthy project in the city,” said Lewis. “Malden River Works promises to deliver significant environmental and recreational benefits to the community. I want to thank Friends of the Malden River for their leadership and hard work in advancing this project.” “I am both pleased and excited to see ARPA funding going to the Malden River Works project,” said Ultrino. “The investment will help create a more accessible and climate resilient community space along Malden’s waterfront, encouraging future community-oriented developments. I would like to thank the rest of the Malden delegation for their support and efforts throughout this process.” “The ARPA Bill will provide valuable funding to advance the Malden River Works Project, an initiative being spearheaded by community leaders of color, members of government and environmental advocates to build the first climate-resilient public park along the Malden River. The park will be a valuable addition to the community that will make this space open to all. It is vital we invest in our planet, and I look forward to seeing this project progress,” said Donato. “I’m pleased that the Malden legislative delegation continues to secure critical state investments for the Malden River Works project,” said Lipper-Garabedian. “The project has had an enormous positive impact on the community, both socially and environmentally. I am pleased that this state funding will support the riverfront cleanup efforts and continued environmental restoration.” “Malden River Works Equitable Resilient Waterfront Park is a brilliant example of a collaborative project for the health of a community, its urban river and climate resiliency for a municipality,” said Malden River Works Environmental Advocate Karen Buck. “This park serves the needs of the public for additional green space with proper stormwater management and will protect an urban river surrounded by Environmental Justice communities. The state-of-the-art design will work to educate the public on the importance of equitable climate resilience and stormwater management for their future. Malden River Works will be an example of how green infrastructure projects can convert wasteland into productive climate resiliency spaces that will be utilized by the public.” The aforementioned bill, which is titled An Act relative ~ LEGAL NOTICE ~ COMMONWEALTH OF MASSACHUSETTS THE TRIAL COURT PROBATE AND FAMILY COURT Docket No. 21P2610 Middlesex Division In the interests of: CALEB ANDRES VALENCIA-PINTO Ward ORDER APPOINTING TEMPORARY GUARDIAN OF A MINOR After hearing on the Motion for Appointment of Temporary Guardian, The Court finds: 1.

Page 16 THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, January 7, 2022 OBITUARIES Richard Don "Richie" Cremone Of Wakefield passed away peacefully on Wednesday, December 29, 2021 at the age of 71. Raised in Malden, Richie was a proud Edgeworthian. From a young age, he earned a living cooking, his life's passion. Initially, he worked as a milkman with his father at Sunnyhurst Dairy, but soon found INCOME FIRST RULE M assHealth follows federal Medicaid regulations and therefore must provide a spouse who continues to live home, while his or her spouse resides in a nursing home and receives MassHealth benefits, with what is called the minimum monthly maintenance needs allowance (MMMNA). The current MMMNA is $2,177.50. Assume a husband is going into a nursing home and his combined monthly pension and social security income is $3,000. Ordinarily, his patient pay amount (PPA), the amount of his monthly income that would have to be paid to the nursing home each month, would be $2,727.20, which results from subtracting the personal needs allowance that MassHealth allows him to keep each month of $72.80 and his monthly health insurance premiums of $200 from $3,000.00. If his wife only has social security income of $750 per month, MassHealth will reallocate $1,427.50 of his monthly income to her to bring her up to the MMMNA figure of $2,177.50. Therefore, the actual amount the husband will pay to the nursing home each month will instead be $1,299.70. In addition to the MMMNA designed to provide a minimum amount of income to the spouse who stays at home and still needs to pay the house bills, food shopping bills, etc., Medicaid law also provides for a certain amount of otherwise countable assets to be kept in his or her name. That amount is currently set at $130,380. The spouse in the nursing home can only have $2,000 of countable assets in his or her name. Any excess assets must be spent on nursing home care unless steps are taking to protect those assets for the spouse at home to avoid his or her being impoverished. What are some of the steps that can be taken? Certainly, funds should be set aside towards irrevocable funeral contracts, cemetery plot and other expenses associated with your funeral arrangements. A separate “burial” account in the amount of $1,500 can be established at your bank for each spouse. Although this is not a large amount of money, it would still serve to fund a collation for the family after the funeral service for each of the spouses. A Medicaid annuity can be purchased in the name of the spouse who remains at home thereby providing him or her with additional monthly income to help pay for monthly bills. The annuity contract must be irrevocable, non-assignable and non-commutable. This strategy essentially converts countable assets that would otherwise be required to be spent down on nursing home care into a lifetime income stream for the spouse who stays at home. Furthermore, there is no five-year look back period concern as transfers between spouses are not disqualifying transfers. It is always a good idea to plan ahead. However, there are last minute planning opportunities available depending upon the unique circumstances applicable to a particular family. Joseph D. Cataldo is an Estate Planning/Elder Law Attorney, Certified Public Accountant, Certified Financial Planner, AICPA Personal Financial Specialist and holds a Master’s Degree in Taxation. his calling at Tricca’s, Anthony’s and Brandano’s restaurants, where he built a reputation as a hardworking and talented chef whose food brought people together and buttons apart. He also experienced great joy and satisfaction catering many events throughout the years. Richie was the proud owner of Cremones’ Restaurant in Malden. The fulfillment of a lifelong dream, the restaurant was a special place where everyone truly knew your name. It’s impossible to recount the number of friendships, loves, and good times that were made at Cremones’ and will be cherished throughout the years. After closing the restaurant, Richie worked for several years at the Middlesex Sheriff’s office as the Director of Food Service in Cambridge. It was through cooking that Richie expressed his creativity and demonstrated his love for family and friends. His delicious soups, stuffed artichokes, Abruzzi sauce, and, of course, skiffyskaf happily filled the bellies of countless people over the years. Richie was a graduate of Malden High School’s Class of 1967. He served in the Army National Guard’s 182nd Infantry Regiment as a mess steward. Although he and his wife raised their daughters in Wakefield and enjoyed innumerable good times with their dear "neighborhood" friends, his heart was always in Malden. Richie was a longtime member of the American Legion and Italian American Citizens Club. Cooking bracciole and sausages at St. Rocco’s every summer was one of his favorite activities and he also loved golfing in several leagues and being a champion bocce player. Some of his charitable activities included fundraisers for Children’s Hospital of Boston and the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Richie was married for 48 years to Toni Marie (Cole) Cremone and together they raised two daughters, Julie Ann (Cremone) Whitson and Lindsay (Cremone) Cammarata, who will never fully recover from the loss of their devoted and doting father. He was the son of the late Joseph and Eleanor (Clivio) Cremone and the brother of Robert Cremone of Woburn, his late twin Dr. Joseph Cremone Jr. and Janet Schweitzer and her husband ~ Legal Notice ~ COMMONWEALTH OF MASSACHUSETTS THE TRIAL COURT PROBATE AND FAMILY COURT DEPARTMENT Middlesex Probate and Family Court 10-U Commerce Way Woburn, MA 01801 Docket No. MI21D3642DR DIVORCE SUMMONS BY PUBLICATION AND MAILING Melissa L.

One poll cited by Weiss: “39% of Gen Zers are hesitant to procreate for fear of the climate apocalypse.” The blame for this epidemic of baseless fear lies with the media, an out-of-touch global political elite, and especially with our public school system. The indoctrination of children into environmentalist alarmism under the cynical, self-serving supervision of the EPA is professional malpractice and inhumane. Unfortunately for the women getting sterilized today, by the time they realize today’s scary predictions are as baseless as Ehrlich’s decades ago, it will be impossible for them to have children should they so desire. Psychology Recently, the Foundation for Economic Education (FEE) posted an article about John B. Calhoun “mouse utopia” experiments in the 1960s. Briefly, mice were provided with utopian (ideal) conditions—the ultimate in cradle-to-grave security. Eventually, the pampered mice became antisocial. They shunned sex and procreation, and consequently died out. Calhoun concluded from his experiments that “When all sense of necessity is stripped from the life of an individual, life ceases to have purpose. The individual dies in spirit.” Your Hometown News Delivered!

PO Box 490407, Everett, MA 02149 I have commented before about the paradox of prosperity—that the wealthier capitalism has made human societies, the more individuals despise capitalism. Today, the wealthier and easier that life becomes compared to what our ancestors experienced, the more reactions there are like Isabel’s. She states, “I think it’s morally wrong to bring a child into the world. No matter how good someone has it, they will suffer.” In other words, since the perfect life is unattainable, today’s better life becomes a tragedy to be avoided. Spiritual alienation Pagan greens disparage human life as a “cancer,” “plague,” “vermin,” “disease,” etc., and openly long for humans to decrease. They reject the Christian belief that life is a gift from God and that we humans should “be fruitful and multiply.” “I don’t want to work my life away,” says Isabel, an avowed anti-natalist. Like the mice in Calhoun’s experiments, when creature comforts abound and life is without challenges to survival, it seems that the zest for life atrophies, and along with it, the desire to procreate and share the joys of life with children. If this attitude becomes dominant—if more and more people view children as a burden instead of a gift, and life as a dreary nuisance rather than a splendid opportunity to enjoy God’s creation—our population will indeed implode. If taken to an extreme, societal suicide becomes a possibility. We may not be at the point of an existential crisis yet. But it is ominous that an increasing number of young people no longer include child-bearing in their concept of what constitutes a fulfilled life. God help us. —Dr. Mark W.

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, January 7, 2022 Page 19 MassDEP files new regulations to reduce emissions, advance market for clean trucks T o further reduce transportation emissions and accelerate the adoption of zero-emission vehicles (ZEV), the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (MassDEP) recently announced that emergency regulations have been filed with the Secretary of the Commonwealth’s offi ce to immediately adopt California’s Advanced Clean Trucks regulation, which requires an increasing percentage of ZEV truck sales starting with Model Year 2025 and ramping up through Model Year 2035, accelerating the market for medium- and heavy-duty ZEVs. The fi ling of the emergency regulations commences the start of a public comment period and the coordination of a public hearing in February 2022 and will help reduce emissions of nitrogen oxides (NOx), toxic air contaminants and greenhouse gases from on-road vehicles. “Massachusetts continues to take aggressive action to reduce emissions from the transportation sector, and addressing pollution from medium- and heavy-duty vehicles and advancing the market for clean trucks is an essential part of this eff ort,” said Energy and Environmental Affairs Secretary Kathleen Theoharides. “Reducing emissions from trucks will help support public health by improving air quality, reducing the risk from exposure to toxic diesel pollution, and reducing emissions that contribute to climate change.” Massachusetts law requires the Commonwealth to adopt California motor vehicle emissions standards as long as those standards achieve, in the aggregate, greater emissions reductions than federal standards.

Here’s a rundown of the diff erent levels of senior housing and some resources to help you choose one. Independent living: If your mom is in relatively good health and self-suffi cient, “independent living communities” are a top option that can off er a sense of community. Typically available to people over age 55, this type of senior housing is usually apartments or town homes that are fully functional. In addition, many communities also off er amenities such as meals served in a common dining area, housekeeping, transportation and a variety of social activities. To locate this type of housing, contact your Area Agency on Aging (call 800-677-1116 to get your local number), or use an online search tool like Caring.com. Most of these communities are private pay only and can vary greatly in cost ranging anywhere from $1,500 to $6,000 per month. Assisted living: If your mom needs some help with daily living chores, she’ll probably need an “assisted living facility.” These facilities provide help with the activities of daily living – like bathing, dressing, eating, going to the bathroom – as needed, as well as meals, housekeeping, transportation, social activities and medication management. Many facilities also off er special “memory care units” for residents with dementia. Costs for assisted living usually run between $3,000 and $6,000 per month depending on location and services needed. Most residents pay for assisted living from personal funds, while some have long-term care insurance policies. And many state Medicaid programs today also cover some assisted living costs for fi - nancially eligible residents. Another similar, but less expensive option to look into is “board and care homes.” These off er many of the same services as assisted living facilities but in a much smaller home setting. Your Area Aging Agency is again a good resource for fi nding assisted living facilities and board care homes, as is Caring.com. Nursing homes: If your mom needs ongoing medical and personal care or has very limited mobility, a nursing home, which provides 24-hour skilled nursing care is the next option. To fi nd a good one, use Medicare’s nursing home compare tool at Medicare. gov/care-compare. This tool will not only help you locate nursing homes in your area, it also provides a 5-star rating system on recent health inspections, staffi ng, quality of care, and overall rating. But be aware that nursing home care is very expensive, costing anywhere between $4,500 and $13,000 per month for a semi-private room depending on where you live. Most residents pay from either personal funds, a long-term care insurance policy or through Medicaid after their savings are depleted. Continuing-care retirement communities (CCRC’s): If your mom has the fi nancial resources, a “CCRC” is another option that provides all levels of housing (independent living, assisted living and skilled nursing home care) in one convenient location. But these communities typically require a hefty entrance fee that can range from $20,000 to $500,000 or more, plus ongoing monthly service fees that vary from around $2,000 to over $4,000. To search for CCRC’s visit Caring.com. Need Help? If you’re not sure what your mom needs, consider hiring an aging life care expert (AgingLifeCare.org) who can assess your mom and fi nd her appropriate housing for a fee – usually between $300 and $800. Or you can use a senior care advising service like A Place for Mom (APlaceForMom.com) for free. They get paid from the senior living facilities in their network. Send your senior questions to: Savvy Senior, P.O. Box 5443, Norman, OK 73070, or visit SavvySenior.org. Jim Miller is a contributor to the NBC Today show and author of “The Savvy Senior” book. iori n r by Jim Miller Deciphering Senior Housing Options Dear Savvy Senior, Can you decipher the diff erent types of housing options available to seniors, and recommend some good resources for locating them? I need to fi nd a place for my elderly mother and could use some help. Overwhelmed Daughter

Page 20 THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, January 7, 2022 EMISSIONS | FROM PAGE 19 has amended it many times to remain identical to the California LEV program. This latest amendment involves emission standards for Model Years 2025 and later medium- and heavy-duty vehicles and engines. “The transportation sector accounts for about 40 percent of the total greenhouse gas emissions statewide. Adopting California’s regulations will help to reduce air pollution across the Commonwealth and protect our environment and the public health,” said MassDEP Commissioner Martin Suuberg. “Adoption of these rules will also address environmental justice concerns in communities that are disproportionately impacted by medium- and heavy-duty vehicle traffi c.” Emergency authorization of the regulation was needed as the federal Clean Air Act (CAA) requires states that adopt the California standards to do so at least two model years before the standards take eff ect – in this case, January 1, 2022 – for vehicles labeled as Model Year 2025, which starts on January 1, 2024. The fi ling begins a three-month process towards making the emergency regulations permanent, which will include a public hearing on the amendment set for January 21, 2022, and a 30-day public comment period which ends on January 31, 2022. The emergency regulations adopt the latest revisions to the California medium- and heavy-duty vehicle and engine regulations. Those revisions include the following: the Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Phase 2 Standards for Model Year 2025; the Heavy-Duty Omnibus Regulation, which contains a comprehensive set of emission standards and other emission-related requirements for heavy-duty vehicles and engines; and the Advanced Clean Trucks Regulation, resulting in ZEV sales starting in Model Year 2025 and ramping up through Model Year 2035, accelerating the market for mediumand heavy-duty ZEVs. In addition to reducing pollutant emissions, the regulations will lead to reduced fuel consumption and fuel costs and maintenance due to more fuel-effi - cient engines and vehicles and next-generation zero-emission trucks. MassDEP offi cials participated in a series of meetings on these rulemakings with the California Air Resources Board (CARB) and joined CARB, the REAL ESTATE TRANSACTIONS BUYER1 BALASANTHIRAN, ALEXANDER TRAN, HOANG Q HORWITZ, CRISTOPHER GENNETTI-AYLWARD, KRISTIN LAMARRE, FERRY PARE, MICHELLE E BUYER2 SELLER1 RAMIREZ, EDWIN GARDINER, PAUL C SELLER2 26 WEBBER STREET RT HAKAM, SYED A KOUSSOU-AZIZET, EMMILIENN MAWHINNEY, GUY H Northeast States for Coordinated Air Use Management and other organizations to develop the new regulations. MassDEP also held two public stakeholder meetings in April 2021 to share information on these regulatory eff orts and to solicit stakeholder feedback. Vehicle emissions regulations are part of the Massachusetts plan to maintain air quality standards under the federal CAA and are a critical component of the Massachusetts Interim Clean Energy and Climate Plan for 2030 under the Massachusetts Global Warming Solutions Act (GWSA). Earlier this year, Governor Baker signed “An Act creating a next-generation roadmap for Massachusetts climate policy,” which amended the GWSA to require specifi ed emissions reduction limits for 2030 and 2040 and net-zero greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 2050. Last year Massachusetts was one of 15 states and the District of Columbia to set a goal of 100 percent electric truck and bus sales by 2050. Adopting these rules will accelerate the transition to medium- and heavy-duty electric vehicles. Massachusetts will see many health, climate and economic benefi ts of the medium- and heavy duty rules by 2050, including: • Health benefits of $363 to $818 million from avoided premature deaths, hospitalizations for cardiovascular and respiratory illness, and emergency room visits. • Regional medium- and heavy-duty vehicle emission reductions of 51 percent for NOx, 23 percent for particulate matter and 53 percent for GHG.
