THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, January 20, 2023 Page 3 ~ Malden Musings ~ “Malden, Back in the Day” By Peter F. Levine M y recent column reminiscing about Malden, back in the day, struck a nerve with many Maldonians. It was a pleasure to write, and I sincerely appreciate folks reaching out to me. I’ll let Barry, Arthur and Jonesy take it from here: Barry Crotty: “Great write up! Brought back many memories. I was a summer park instructor 1960 at Roosevelt Park. Grew up in Forestdale surrounded by immigrant families from Nova Scotia, Italy, and Ireland, interspersed with many Jewish families from all over the world. One of which took the time to teach me some Yiddish while I was learning German at MHS. The ‘Poor Farm’ (McFadden Manor) was still in operation, with cows and a bull, a two-story barn, a silo, and hundreds of chickens in a long, two-story coop. The farm had horses, and there was an underground stable in the rear of the extensive living quarters. Mr. McGuire was in charge and every spring he tilled the fields and planted vegetables. One of their fenced-in fields had several huge chestnut trees, now rarely found in the USA. Forestdale Park was originally located on Sylvan Street at the bottom of Kimball Street (replacing ‘WW-2 Victory Garden’ plots planted by Forestdale neighbors). Next to it the city grew trees for replanting around the city. The Poor Farm and the Forestdale Park property acreage was incrementally developed into elderly housing, the current Forestdale Park, and a new school. The Forestdale Cemetery still had lots of open space at the Forest St/Sylvan Street end, where us kids would roam. It’s now filled up with gravesites. Pine Banks Park had a large dump next to it, largely hidden in the woods, and when they closed it for good, they bulldozed it flat and trucked excess dump material as fill to make the current ballfields. For years afterwards lots of glass shards would work their way to the grassy surface. Maplewood, Linden, and Forestdale comprised our stomping grounds. Our schools were very old, Ayers, Maplewood, and Browne, all replaced over the years. Malden had 5 movie theaters in ‘The Square’ and candlepin bowling alleys. Automated pin setting machines existed but some alleys still used boys to reset the pins! Many of our streets were still paved with cobblestones and SNOW BLOWER SALES, SERVICE & REPAIRS Pickup/Delivery Available 1039 BROADWAY, REVERE WWW.BIKERSOUTFITTER.COM AUTOTECH Malden (way) Back in the Day...Malden Square World War II era. roads were still unpaved dirt. They city started to dig up many cobblestones and stored piles of them at the old City Yards near the Pearl St Stadium, but that was too man-intensive, so they just paved over many streets, leaving the cobblestones as a base. Malden’s main streets were crisscrossed with trolley wires about 15-20 feet high. The trackless trolley buses had two poles attached to the rear of the buses which connected to the overhead electrical wires. One pole would often detach from the wires when the bus made a tight turn around a corner. The bus would immediately stop, and the driver had to go out and swing the pole back into position. The Service Bus Line with blue buses replaced the red buses of the Warwick Line in the mid-1950’s. Ten cents a ride! I left Malden in 1961 for four years in the Air Force, returned for a year, working for Household Finance on Pleasant Street, and then off to a 40+ year career as a civilian in the Department of Defense at NSA and the Pentagon. Lived in England, Italy, Texas, Florida, Maryland, Hawaii and now Oregon but always remembered how places like the Salemwood Grille, Jessel’s, and others were not just bars, they were neighborhood gathering places, where ‘they knew your name, what you drank and what your parents drank.’ It took us YEARS to find the same feeling of ‘belonging.’ Still have family in Malden. My father and brothers worked for the city as the Inspectors of Wiring and Code Enforcement, and my nephew is a current police officer. We still return for visits and noticed that ‘The Square’ is looking much better each year. All MUSINGS| SEE PAGE 9 DRIVE IT - PUSH IT - TOW IT! Cold Hard Cash for Your Vehicle!

"There has been an increasing problem in the neighborhood with the use of this machine," said Ward 2 Councillor Paul Condon. "People come to fi ll up their containers at all hours of the night now. They bang on the machines and vehicles pulling in and out late. "People should not get woken up at night just so someone can get a gallon of water," Councillor Condon said. "Something must be done about this. It is a real problem." Condon said he would like Councillor-at-Large Craig Spadafora's resolution on Tuesday's docket, "Be it hereby ordained by the Malden City Council that the Code of the City of Malden (MCC) be amended by adding Title 6, Chapter .20, Section .040 PERMIT FOR EXTERIOR VENDING MACHINES" referred to the Council's Ordinance Committee."Councillor Spadafora is on the right track," he said. "There's a sign that says open 7 a.m. until 11 p.m. That's not being followed," Condon said. "We have to have those who operate it explain why. Maybe they have to lock it up after the stated hours or put a fence around it. "It's time to dig into this," the Ward 2 Councillor. said.

Council resolution to support pending legislation calling for study of rodent control poison is tabled Malden has a major rat problem, as several City Councillors attested at Tuesday night's meeting. They also agreed there is a dilemma over how to combat the problem, particularly the use of, “Second Generation Anticoagulant Rodenticides (SGARs)" which is eff ective, but some supporters of wildlife believe it is dangerous to birds of prey. It is also a threat to domestic animals and at times the general public.

House of Representatives and being considered by the State Senate calling for a study of the use and potential eff ects of the use of these rodent pesticides. O'Malley related a personal story of how his own dog was sickened after ingesting a rodent pesticide and several other Councillors related similar stories, including Colon Hayes, Ward 3 Councillor Amanda Linehan and Council President Barbara Murphy. The same Councillors, all of whom live near wooded areas, also pointed to the influx of more birds of prey to Malden, like eagles and hawks. Before the discussion began on O'Malley's paper, a local business owner, Galvin Murphy of Yankee Pest Control asked that the Council consider waiting on Ward 2 City Councillor Paul Condon and Councillor-atLarge Craig Spadafora are calling for the institution of an ordinance requiring permits and regulation of Exterior Vending Machines, such as water vending machines.

"I have 40 years of experience and many certifications on the use of rodents and other pesticides. This legislation is aimed at stopping those who are not professionals from purchasing and using pesticides," Murphy said. Murphy said the outright banning of the use of the "SGAs" pesticides could potentially quadruple the costs of battling rodents in Malden or anywhere. O'Malley stressed: "This bill is to study the use of the pesticide, and to restrict residential consumers of the product." When Councillors Condon and Ward 6 Councillor Steve Winslow indicated they would prefer to table proceeding this resolution to a Council committee discussion, pending getting more information regarding the wording and status of the state legislation, Councillor O'Malley said he was satisfi ed with that move. A unanimous, 8-0 vote tabled action on the resolution.

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, January 20, 2023 Page 7 RATE | FROM PAGE 1 lor Ryan O'Malley and Councillor at large Karen Colon Hayes "to explore alternatives to the current water and sewer rate tiers" to a joint committee meeting at a future date. Specifically, the Councillors' resolution asked for discussion on the topic " to bring more equitable rates to two-family and other multifamily homes, including but not limited to, sub-meter account billing for individual units to reflect actual per unit consumption." On an 8-0 vote, a motion was unanimously passed to refer the resolution to a future joint meeting of the Finance and Public Works committees. Councillor O'Malley said he was particularly interested in receiving information on potential alternatives that might offer some rate relief to Malden residents in addition to providing protection to tenants who might be getting billed directly by landlords for water usage. "I have received a number of letters and other inquiries from residents asking about alternatives to how they are now being billed," O'Malley said at Tuesday's meeting. "Some landlords are buying their own (water) meters and tenants have questions about tiers and (rate) structures." Councillor O'Malley noted that water-sewer rates and tiers and a desire to receive more and newer information on this subject was originally proposed in previous years by Council President Barbara Murphy (Ward 5).Councillor Murphy said, "This remains an interesting topic, which has a lot of facets to it." O'Malley, the primary sponsor of the resolution, said his primary intention was to seek information and that he was "looking to get ahead of the issue" as the Malden water-sewer are customarily set on July 1 each. "Separate billing, submeters, it is all something we should talk about," the Ward 4 Councillor said. O'Malley then invited City Treasurer-Collector Daniel Grover, who was sitting in the audience at Tuesday night's meeting to come to the podium to speak with the Councillors. O'Malley said he had also already discussed the issue with other city officials, including Chief Financial Officer-Controller Charles Ranaghan. Grover said he agreed with the intention of the resolution in that "conversation and dialogue on (water-sewer) rates are positives." Grover noted that "Rates are determined by consumed and the water consumption is directly gauged by the MWRA."The MWRA is the Massachusetts Water Resources Authority. Grover made several key points in his brief address to the Councillors, affirming Malden uses tiered rate setting but spoke against submeter account billing for multifamily residences by the city of Malden. "It (submeter billing) would be cost prohibitive since you would need individual pipes coming out of the meter and into the separate residences. "Submetering is something we would not want to pursue," Grover said. "One big reason is that we do not have a mechanism to bill tenants if they move, if they were on some sort of submetering." Councillor O'Malley said he would be interested in discussing the issues regarding water-sewer rate setting at a future joint committee meeting. "I appreciate the explanation on the tenant/landlord dynamic," Councillor O'Malley said. "It is something we would like to discuss further." Other Councillors agreed with the move to discuss water-sewer rates ahead of the actual rate-setting is done by outside consultants. "We are having a new consultant (for rate-setting) and I would like to see how he intends to set the actual rates," said Ward 2 Councillor Paul Condon. "It's a good resolve. Anytime we get an opportunity to look at (water-sewer rate setting) objectively, it's a good thing." Ward 3 Councillor Amanda Linehan said, "I had a conversation with Councillor O'Malley on this issue and it is always valuable to use a good opportunity to understand about the parity or equity of the process."When you rent, you don't pay attention much to rates since (water) is included, but as a homeowner, this is a significant expense," Councillor Linehan added. "I've talked with many residents about water-sewer rates as well and I welcome the opportunity to discuss this issue further," said Ward 3 Councillor Carey McDonald, who also serves as chairperson of the Council's Finance Committee. "I'm happy to be a sponsor of this resolve," said Councillor at large Karen Colon Hayes. "With times as they are now, with prices increasing, we have to help residents find ways to save." The motion to send the resolve to the joint committee meeting in the immediate future passed unanimously, 8-0.

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, January 20, 2023 Page 9 MUSINGS | FROM PAGE 3 the best in the future.” Bobby “Jonesy” Jones: “Peter very good commentary of life growing up in Malden. “It was a great time to be young. As for me on a personal note, I was lucky to experience a lot of these diff erent areas of our city. Growing up just east of Malden Sq. on Almont St. off Eastern Ave in a predominantly Jewish neighborhood. But going to Beebe in my Jr. High yrs. Getting to meet guys like you in the Edgeworth area and down at Devir Park for Beebe football practices in ’71 and ’72. Eventually practicing at Amerige Park ’73. It was a culmination of knowing people from diff erent ethnic groups from where I lived. Thanks for the trip down memory lane. Living here in the South now, I am living with a mixture of people from all over the country and the world. Which has opened my eyes to many more experiences that keep coming every day.” Arthur Fullman: “Great writing, Peter. I grew up in Judson Square and then the West End. Worked for a time at Judson Square Pharmacy. Had high school friends from all over the city. Many great memories of school and life in Malden. Practiced law in Malden for 40 years, then 10 more in Lynnfi eld. Interesting to watch the city in transition. Often used Malden as an example in the course I taught for 15 years at Suff olk University Law School on Municipal Law and Public Policy. Thanks for the memories. MHS Class of 1960.” As Peter Falk’s iconic TV character “Columbo” would say, “Just one more thing, sir” – the Blue Star Bar bumper sticker on the back of my Versa has elicited many thumbs up, many smiles and numerous waves since I added it a few years back. But the encounter I had in the recent past with a woman in her early to mid-70s was the most memorable. I only mention this because many of us in Malden hold memories of the Blue Star near and dear to our collective hearts. It was a “rite of passage” back in the day to journey to Route 1, stop at the Blue Star and have lifelong remembrances full of fun memories – a time to forget about everyday life for a moment or two – fun that you could not get in Malden. So, I am on Lowell Street in Peabody when a woman in the car behind me starts frantically waving her arms for me to pull over. I don’t recognize her so I fi gure she must have me mistaken me for somebody else. After a half mile of hi-beams fl ashing, more hand waves and manic honking, I pull into the parking lot of Saint Adelaide’s Church. I am not struck by lightning nor does a tree fall on my vehicle as I pull in the church lot. So that is a good thing – insert smiley face emoji. I roll the window down. So does she. At that point this total stranger goes into the most heartfelt exchange I have had with any person in many years. She became emotional as she told me that my bumper sticker brought back a boatload of unforgettable memories. She thanked me for pulling over and for giving her the opportunity to tell me how “delightful” it was for her to see that memory alive once again. She went on to tell me how she and her friends (100 strong!) would take over the bar on the weekends. How they would dance and laugh all night. How much fun they had listening to the bands. Hanging with the eclectic clientele the BS attracted. How many of those friends are no longer alive. Like many of us she wished she could spend “one more of those nights dancing carefree” – “laughing until it hurt” – to go back when “life was simpler.” I agreed. Total strangers when we met, hugging on departure as if we knew each other forever. Postscript: Congratulations to Maura “Friend of Malden” Healey! Governor of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Not only because she’s wicked smaht, remarkably successful and extremely aff able but also because she was a professional basketball player! Yes, before she was a law clerk, before she was a junior partner at a prestigious law fi rm, before she was a special assistant district attorney in Middlesex County, she spent some time as the starting point guard for a pro hoop team in Austria: UBBC Wustenrot Salzburg. That is cool. All kidding aside, her hoop cred is impressive, of course, but we are truly fortunate to have an immense talent like Ms. Healey guiding us into the 21st century. Let us count our blessings for her voice of reason – and sanity. Governor Healey’s voice as well as Eddie (Edgeworth’s very own) Markey, Jason Lewis, Steve (Edgeworth’s very own) Ultrino, Kate Lipper-Garabedian and Katherine Clark representing us with honor and dignity. Honor and dignity not to be taken for granted these days. Malden has your back, Governor Healey.

Dr. Tam brings expertise in performing hospital-based dentistry with a focus on using digital technology and modern techniques to produce efficient, high-quality patient outcomes. As interim chief, he expanded oral surgery workflows and created a special needs dental program, ultimately leading to a threefold increase in dental operating room utilization and productivity.Dr. Tam has also demonstrated a strong track record of public service and promoting oral health within our communities. During his time at CHA, he has formed strategic partnerships with the Cambridge Public Health Department, Harvard School of Dental Medicine (HSDM), Boston Children’s Hospital, and various local charitable groups (e.g., African Community Health Initiatives and the Salvation Army) to help reach and care for vulnerable populations. Dr. Tam received his master’s in biomedical imaging and Doctor of Dental Surgery degrees from the University of California, San Francisco.

In these roles, he maintained residency accreditation status at the highest level during the COVID-19 pandemic and introduced a novel PGY-2 curriculum into the program, making CHA/ HSDM the only general practice residency (GPR) in Mass. to offer an advanced, second year of training.

I look forward to working closely with him to advance our dental service line and deliver outstanding care and new services to our patients.” The Four Chaplains Remembered O n Sunday, February 5, the Middlesex County Council, American Legion together with Malden Post 69 and Medford Post 45 will conduct a ceremony to honor and remember the four chaplains who sacrificed their lives to save others. This is the 79th anniversary of the sinking of the United States Army Transport Dorchester and the selfless acts of four Army chaplains aboard. The Dorchester tragically sank on Feb. 3, 1943, while crossing the North Atlantic, transporting troops to an American base in Greenland. A German U-boat fired a torpedo that struck the Dorchester, killing 672 of the 902 officers and enlisted men, merchant seamen and civilian workers aboard. Many of those survivors owe their lives to the courage and leadership exhibited by four chaplains of different faiths, who, in sacrificing their lives, created a unique legacy of brotherhood. As soldiers rushed to lifeboats, Reverend George Fox (Methodist), Rabbi Alexander Goode, Reverend Clark Poling (Dutch Reformed) and Father John Washington (Roman Catholic) comforted the wounded and directed others to safety. One survivor watched the chaplains distribute life jackets, and when they ran out, they removed theirs and gave them to four young men. As the Dorchester sank, the chaplains were seen linked arm in arm, praying. American Legion posts nationwide remember Four Chaplains Day with memorial services that pay tribute to the courageous chaplains and the brave young men who lost their lives on that fateful night. This year the service will be held at 2:00 p.m. at St. Raphael Church (512 High St. in Medford, Mass.). For information call George Sahady at 781324-9570.

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, January 20, 2023 ~ Letter to the Editor ~ Page 11 Supporting the AEAP program in Malden Schools T he long scheduled school committee meeting with the AEAP’s (formerly known as the Gifted program) status on the 2023 agenda, took place at city hall Monday evening, January 9. The proposed fi nal status of the program was not determined at that time due to more information needing to be assessed about many aspects of the AEAP curricula, attendance, results and other factors. I had requested that demographic data about the program be added to the analysis. There has been ongoing discussion and debate for many years about the need, effi cacy and equity of the AEAP program for the city of Malden’s school system. I have been on the edges and at times in the center of this contentious community discussion and debate of whether this is needed and eff ective for our children. For the entirety of the public discussion, spanning more than a decade of my family’s involvement from my oldest child, who is now 22, to my youngest, who is still a student at Malden High, I have been a firm supporter and advocate for the AEAP program within the Malden Public Schools. My youngest son has followed in his older sibling’s footsteps out of the AEAP and onto the Honor Roll at Malden High. As a parent, I can only hope it continues for him. There are multiple diff erent classroom This is the sort of learning environment that many immigrant parents, like my wife and I work extra hard to get our children into. This is the sort of environment, that my parents worked hard to get me into, when I went through the halls of Boston Latin. I personally did not appreciate the environment during my own childhood, but I eventualAEAP student demographics by gender ly realized the incredible value of the environment, when I became a parent myself. Following my conscience and my beliefs, I will support the AEAP program for talented children here in the city of Malden.

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, January 20, 2023 Page 15 Malden High Co-ed swim pulls out a close one over Melrose Raiders, 90-80 Tornados stay undefeated at 7-0 with high-intensity victory over next-door, non-league rival By Steve Freker H ow close a rival has Melrose High become to the Malden High swim team? Well, they are the only team to have defeated Malden in the past three years, for starters. Melrose is also right next door to the Tornados, its only non-league opponent with which is shares a border. The clincher? Both Malden High and Melrose High call the Barry Fitzpatrick Pool home! Melrose rents the MHS pool for its practices and meets for the past several years, All that may have factored into the intensity Wednesday as Malden and Melrose went splash-for-splash in a pitched battle — at both teams' home pool— that was not decided until the final event, when Malden took a key second and third-place finish in the 400-freestyle relay. With the win, head coach Jess Bisson's Malden squad stayed perfect for the season at 7-0. Coach Bisson was pleased with the response Malden made in its closest meet of the year. "It was really a great meet. We had to earn this win," Coach Bisson said. "The atmosphere and intensity were great for our kids to compete in today. It was back-and-forth and it went down to the final event. Just a fantastic day for our final home meet of the season." Being the final home meet for Malden it was also Senior Night for the Tornados' nine members of the Senior Class of 2023: Tri-captains Liam Bloom, Nathan Nguyen and Wara Ramirez Morales as well as Leo Chen, Nimon Jusufi, Kyle Lee, Steven Leung, Ryan Li and Allen Xiao. Photo coverage from the event will appear in next week's January 27 Advocate. This was the theme of the day for Malden: Pick up points in the second and third spots in the finishes as they obviously added up. For the first time all season, a Malden opponent won more events than the Tornados. In fact, Melrose was in firstplace in 8-of-11 events. Malden won just 3 events: Both of the sprints, the 50 freestyle and 100 freestyle, both by senior captain Nathan Nguyen along with the leadoff 200 medley relay. Nguyen took the 100 freestyle with a time of 55.99 seconds. Teammate Xiaode "David" Xu, a sophomore, took an extremely valuable second-place finish at 56.40 seconds. Seventh-grader Sophie Tran was fourth at 1:03.49. In the 50 freestyle, Nguyen won it at 25.69 seconds. Again, Malden went 1-2 in the event as Nimon Jusufi finished at 26.13 seconds. Junior Stanley Yip was fifth at 30.65 seconds. Malden also won the 200-medley relay with the foursome of seniors Nathan Nguyen, Kyle Lee and Liam Bloom and sophomore Xaiode "David" Xu coming in first at 1:55.92. Picking up valuable third-place points was the relay team of Joslyn Nguyen, Hailey Tran, Sophie Tran and Tiffany Pham at 2:08.56. Finishing fourth was Christina Mui, Sophia Huynh, Danielle Harrington and Justina Li, at 2:47.15. In that first event of the day, Malden went ahead 10-4 and never gave up the lead again, though Melrose would keep it close throughout, trailing at various junctures, 2521, and then by four points again (the closest it would get) at 42-38. A key event for Malden was the 200 freestyle, where Melrose won it, but Malden rolled 2-3-4 finish to outscore the Raiders, 9-7 in the event overall. Tornados Hailey Tran was second (2:26.05), Steven Leung third (2:21.06) and James Zhou fourth (2:50.65). Malden went 3-4-5 in the 200 individual medley with Xu third (2:31.20), Sophie Tran fourth (2:36.22) and Joslyn Nguyen fifth (2:50.65), Kyle Lee picked up a big second-place finish in the 100 butterfly to get some valuable Malden points (1:08.16). Leung was fourth at 1:19.07. Another key second-place finish came from Bloom (6:10.52) in the 500 freestyle which helped keep Melrose at bay and Malden in a comfortable 12-point lead in the meet at 61-49 Tiffany Pham was fourth (7:26.17) and Joyce Zhou fifth (7:29.15). Kyle Lee, Stanley Yip, Joao Victor Santos, and Xiaode Xu teamed up for what may have been the most vital second-place finish of the meet, a 1:52.70 and second place in the 200-freestyle relay. Malden also took third at 2:08.55 (Hailey Tran, Joslyn Nguyen, Tiffany Pham, Sophie Tran) and fourth at 2:24.57 (Claudia Hernandez Escobar, Larissa Granja RetameroLanyu Liang, Leo Chen). Malden senior Allen Xiao had his best finish and personal best time of 1:14.28 in the 100 backstroke, still another valuable second-place. Tri-captain Ramirez Morales was third (1:25.00) and senior Ryan Li fifth (1:41.18). That gave Malden 9-7 points win in the event, as Melrose went first and fifth in the event as the Tornados kept the double-digit lead heading into final event, the 400 free relay. Malden went 2-3 in the final event, the 400-freestyle relay, to clinch the meet victory as Melrose banged their eighth single event victory. An official meet win-clinching second-place by the relay of Bloom, Joslyn Nguyen, Ramirez Morales and Nathan Nguyen led to a 4:18 time. Taking third for the final Malden points at 4:38 was Leung, James Zhou, Allen Xiao and Nimon Jusufi. "The competition was excellent throughout, we really responded to the challenge as a team," Coach Bisson said. "Really proud of our team today." ***** Malden competes in GBL League Meet next week Malden will be swimming at the Greater Boston League (GBL) League Meet next week on Thursday, January 26 at Medford High School Pool at 4:00 p.m. The Tornados will conclude the regular season on Saturday, February 4 at 7:00 p.m. down the street at Mystic Valley Charter School Eagles at the Bayrd Natatorium.

However, under House and Senate rules, bills filed after January 20 can still be admitted to the Legislature following the deadline if the Legislature agrees to admit it by a four-fifths vote of the members of the branch where the bill is introduced. Massachusetts is one of a handful of states that give citizens the “right of free petition”—the power to propose their own legislation. A citizen’s proposal can be filed in conjunction with his or her representative or senator or any other representative or senator from another district. Sometimes a legislator will support the legislation and sponsor it along with the constituent. Other times, a legislator might disagree with the bill but will file it anyway as a courtesy. In those cases, the bill is listed as being filed “by request”—indicating that the legislator is doing so at the request of the constituent and does not necessarily support it. Citizens that are interested in filing legislation should contact their own or any other representative or senator. The legislator will likely help you draft the language of the bill. Perhaps one of the most famous bills filed “by request” goes all the way back to 1969 when a constituent opposed to the Vietnam War asked the late Newton Democratic Rep. James Shea to file a bill prohibiting Massachusetts citizens from being forced to fight in an “undeclared war.” The bill challenged the constitutionality of sending Bay State men to fight without a Congressional declaration of war. It was approved by the House and Senate and signed by the late Gov. Frank Sargent. The new law made national headlines. To comply with the new law, Massachusetts initially filed a complaint in the U.S. Supreme Court. The high court declined to hear the case, which was later refiled in the U.S. District Court federal court and dismissed—rejecting the state's argument that President Richard Nixon had usurped the war-making powers of Congress. In a tragic footnote, Rep. Shea committed suicide in the fall of the year the legislation passed. ALSO UP ON BEACON HILL FOOD INSECURITY EVENT - As the costs for basic necessities rise, more Massachusetts residents living on the economic margins must choose between buying groceries and paying for housing, transportation, childcare and other basic utilities. It’s a dilemma that plays out in hundreds of thousands of Massachusetts households every day. Hunger and access to proper nutrition remain pervasive, with nearly 1 in 3 adults experiencing food insecurity in Massachusetts in 2021. Join a State House News Service/ MASSterList forum featuring leaders, advocates, and experts for a discussion of opportunities and obstacles for Massachusetts to stem food insecurity. The event is at Massachusetts Continuing Legal Education (MCLE)in Boston’s Downtown Crossing at 10 Winter Place, Suite #4751 at 8:15 a.m. on Wednesday, January 25. U.S. Rep. Jim McGovern will provide keynote remarks. All ticket proceeds benefit The Greater Boston Food Bank. Tickets are available at MASSterList.com/ending-hunger-in-massachusetts/ WRAPPING UP THE 2022 SESSION – Before the 2022 session ended on January 3, the House and Senate acted on several bills including: REVENGE PORN (H 4498, S 3167) – The House and Senate approved different versions of 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. The measure died in the House when the House did not take action on the Senate version of the legislation. Another provision changes current law under which minors, under 18 years of age, who share explicit images of themselves or other minors can be charged with violating Massachusetts child pornography laws and be 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. Supporters say that currently law enforcement are faced with either charging offenders with a felony or doing nothing. They note the bill provides a middle ground that will allow law enforcement to sentence kids to a diversion program to educate them about the consequences of their actions without ruining their lives and giving them a criminal record. Sen. Jamie Eldridge (D-Acton), the Senate chair of the Judiciary Committee, did not respond to repeated attempts by Beacon Hill Roll Call asking how he felt about the measure dying in the House. “Rep. Roy is on an overseas trade mission so I am unable to provide a quote for you,” responded a spokesman for the bill’s sponsor Rep. Jeff Roy (D-Franklin). The spokesman did say that Roy plans to refile the bill in the 2023-2024 session. DEATH OF A CHILD UNDER 2 (H 5422) – The House and Senate both approved a bill that would require that the autopsy report for a child under the age of two be reviewed and approved by the Chief Medical Examiner to determine the cause of death. Changes to the autopsy report would also have to be reviewed and approved by the Chief Medical Examiner. The bill needed a final round of approval by the House and Senate before going to the governor’s desk but neither branch acted upon it and the bill died. Supporters said the measure addresses recent cases in which the Chief Medical Examiner’s office changed the cause of death for deaths of children under two, creating serious implications for ongoing court cases and for the families of those children. They noted that the most experienced person in the office should provide oversight to what are typically junior medical examiners without pediatric autopsy experience. They argued this will provide more confidence and peace of mind for families who have tragically lost infants. Sponsor of the bill Rep. Marjorie Decker (D-Cambridge) did not respond to repeated attempts by Beacon Hill Roll Call asking how she felt about her measure dying, not reaching the governor’s desk and whether she will refile the bill for the 2023-2024 session. FOSTER PARENTS (S 2954) – The House and Senate approved and former-Gov. Charlie Baker signed into law a bill establishing a foster parents’ bill of rights, which will govern the Department of Children and Families’ (DCF) relationship with, and responsibilities to foster parents, and would be publicly available on the department’s website. Provisions include requiring foster parents to be treated with dignity, respect, privacy and consideration; prohibiting foster parents from being discriminated against on the basis of religion, race, color, creed, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, national origin, age or disability; requiring the department to give the foster parents information about the foster child, prior to placement, including the child’s physical and behavioral health history, any history of trauma or high-risk behavior and his or her education needs. Another provision requires DCF to provide a current foster parent, with the permission of the previous foster parent, the name and phone number of the previous foster parent if DCF determines that contact between the current foster parent and previous foster parent would promote the foster child’s best interest. “I am thrilled that the House and Senate passed the Foster Parents Bill of Rights legislation," said sponsor Sen. Jo Comerford (D-Northampton). “Foster parents are true unsung heroes, providing unmatched dedication, commitment, compassion and love to those who need it the most. This bill creates a framework for foster parents to be honored with dignity, respect, privacy and consideration in caring for children, so they can provide nurturing, loving homes. As a foster parent myself, I filed this bill to strengthen our vital foster care system.” INFLAMMATORY BREAST CANCER (H 3147) – The House and Senate approved, and former-Gov. Baker signed into law, a bill that would establish the second Tuesday of every October as “Inflammatory Breast Cancer Awareness Day” in the Bay State. “This designation will go a long way to increase awareness and strengthen efforts to provide education about this rare and aggressive disease,” said sponsor Rep. Sean Garballey (D-Arlington). “Inflammatory Breast Cancer is the most aggressive form of breast cancer and the least understood. Many women receiving this diagnosis have never heard of Inflammatory Breast Cancer or its presentation. Inflammatory 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.” RIGHT WHALE DAY (H 3869) – The House and Senate approved and former Gov. Baker signed into law a bill that designates April 24 as Right Whale Day to promote the preservation of the critically endangered North Atlantic Right Whale. “The North Atlantic right whale is part of our rich maritime history and yet our official state marine mammal is at risk of extinction,” said sponsor Rep. Josh Cutler (D-Duxbury). “Establishing this annual day to celebrate right whales will help promote education and protection efforts.” Rep. Cutler credited his constituent Matt Delaney of Pembroke for coming up with this idea. QUOTABLE QUOTES “The COVID-19 pandemic has caused immense financial harm to millions of families and borrowers. The Biden Administration’s debt cancellation plan will help prevent student loan borrowers from needlessly suffering even more pandemic-related economic harm, including the devastating cascade of harms that follow from default. We are calling on the Supreme Court to uphold the Secretary's authority to provide much-needed relief to people across the country who have been affected by this unprecedented pandemic.” ---Acting Massachusetts Attorney General Elizabeth "Bessie" Dewar, on joining 21 other state attorneys general in submitting a 48-page brief to the nation's high court, arguing that the Biden administration operated within the limits of its power when it moved last year to cancel up to $10,000 of student loan debt per person eligible borrowers and up to $20,000 for those who received Pell Grants. “The governor has committed to electrifying the public fleet and will be evaluating the best methods and timeline for that transition.” ---Gov. Maura Healey’s press secretary Karissa Hand when asked why Gov. Healey is still being driven by state police in a 17 to 20 mile-per- gallon Ford Expedition that she used as attorney general. “There's a reason that people are paying so much in heating bills and electric bills. It's because we've been hostage to the fossil fuel industry for so long.” ---Gov. Healey. “We thought it was important for this, the first meeting, that it just be a meeting among the four of us. We have known each other and worked together, but in different capacities over the last many years and I think it is appropriate for this initial meeting, as we sit down and talk about the future and what we all want to accomplish together, for us to sit together. I certainly look forward to continued conversation and communication with minority leadership.” --- Gov. Healey on why she and Lt. Gov. Kim Driscoll met with Senate President Karen Spilka and House Speaker Ron Mariano and did not include Senate and House Republican Minority Leaders Sen. Bruce Tarr and Rep. Brad Jones. Former Gov. Baker included the two minority leaders in the group’s semi-weekly meetings. "Regular, bipartisan leadership meetings have been one of the distinguishing hallmarks of a state government that operates in a collaborative way, with effective communication between its leaders. They have served us well during very challenging times and are as important now as ever. We look forward to the continuation of these conversations, which are powerful in symbol and substance, and to taking part in them as before. We stand ready to do whatever is necessary to facilitate that continuity.” ---Tarr and Jones in a joint statement in response to being left out of the meeting. HOW LONG WAS LAST WEEK’S SESSION? Beacon Hill Roll Call tracks the length of time that the House and Senate were in session each week. Many legislators say that legislative sessions are only one aspect of the Legislature’s job and that a lot of important work is done outside of the House and Senate chambers. They note that their jobs also involve committee work, research, constituent work and other matters that are important to their districts. Critics say that the Legislature does not meet regularly or long enough to debate and vote in public view on the thousands of pieces of legislation that have been filed. They note that the infrequency and brieflength 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 January 9-13, the House met for a total nine minutes and the Senate met for a total of 17 minutes. Mon.

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, January 20, 2023 Page 17 BASKETBALL | FROM PAGE 1 be the most appropriate, considering Coach Marino's team had to go from the bottom to the top — and quickly — to be able to pull out a huge comeback win over Medford High, 49-45, at Malden High School's Roy Finn Gym. The win, Malden's 5th of its last 6 games, pushed the Tornados to 6-5 overall (4-4 Greater Boston League). The win was especially satisfying, Marino explained afterward because Medford had trounced Malden in Medford in the season opener for both teams, 52-22. "(Medford) beat us by 30 when we played them earlier this year. We prepared for this one with that in mind," Coach Marino said. Down 12 points at halftime and then going down 15 points one minute into the third quarter, after a Medford three-pointer, Malden suddenly went into Tasmanian Devil mode. Led by senior co-captain Anna Yak and junior co-captain Tori Gammon, Malden first went on a 15-2 run in the third quarter — cutting the lead to just two points (35-33, Medford at the end of three) — and then won the "rock fight" that the fourth quarter became. tle while to get going, but she really turned it up a few notches in the second half when we really needed it," Coach Marino said."She was frustrated in the first half when her shots weren't falling, but she stuck with it and it turned around quickly for her— and us— in the second half." Gammon was simply "En Fuego" in the third quarter and much of the fourth. She scored 8 of Malden's 15 third quarter points, where they outscored Medford, 15-5. Fourth quarter? It was "All Malden High Girls Basketball head coach Scott Marino draws up a play for what turned out to be the Tornados' final possession Tuesday night in the comeback, 49-45 win over Medford at home. (Advocate Photo/Steve Freker) So, you look a little tired, Coach! "I'm exhausted," Coach Marino said, with a big smile. "But it's in a good way. I am so happy for our kids that they worked so hard and got a win for all their efforts." Malden got mega-work from two of its captains, senior 6-2 center Anna Yak and junior swing guard Tori Gammon. Gammon led all scorers with 19 points. That gamehigh number is an impressive mark in itself. Check this out, though" ALL the junior's points came in the SECOND HALF! That's right ALL 19 points — 19-of-27 scored by Malden in the second, were scored by Gammon. It was Gammon's first game back on the court after missing the last 4 games (where Malden went 2-2 overall) due to a sprained knee. "It took her (Gammon) a litTori, All the Time". The thirdyear varsity player scored 11of-12 Malden fourth quarter points. While her teammates may have missing shots, not so for Gammon. The Tornado junior also went 5-of-9 from the free throw line. No free throw was bigger than the one she sunk to put Malden ahead, 49-45 with 11 seconds left to play. Medford missed its last shot and the game was over. Coach Marino had lots of praise for senior captain Anna Yak."That was one the best games Anna (Yak) has played here, if not the best," Coach Marino said of the third-year varsity starter, who scored 10 points and hauled in 12 rebounds, as well as 3 steals and 5 blocks defensively. Coach Marino confirmed that Yak’s defensive work late in the fourth quarter was perhaps the biggest play of the game. Yak's steal, under the Medford basket, consisted of ripping the ball out of Kaleigh Dixon's hands under the Mustang basket— with under a minute to play, and the game tied— leading directly to a Malden basket, putting Malden up, 45-43, and they never gave back the lead. After Gammon's free throw and Medford's miss at the buzzer, the celebration began, complete with happy screams and lots of hugs. **** Malden's busy: On road last night, host Salem Friday It is a busy week for Coach Marino's Tornados. After Tuesday's win, Malden Girls Basketball was on the road at Lynn English last night (7:00 p.m.) Malden has a third game this week tonight. The Tornado girls are hosting Salem (MA) HS at the Finn Gym at 6:00 p.m. The Junior Varsity team plays at Finn Gym at 4:30 p.m. and the Malden freshman girls plat at Beebe K-8 School at 4:00 p.m.

PLUG-IN ELECTRIC VEHICLE TAX CREDIT four kilowatt hours and is capable of being recharged from an external source. The vehicle must be used primarily in the United States. For purchases after August 16, 2022, the final assembly of the vehicle generally must have taken place in North America. For a qualified vehicle placed in T he pre-2023 qualified plugin electric drive motor vehicle tax credit is $2,500, plus $417 for a vehicle that draws propulsion energy from a battery with not less than five kilowatt hours of capacity, and an additional $417 for each kilowatt hour of battery capacity in excess of five kilowatt hours. The additional amount cannot exceed $5,000, resulting in a maximum tax credit for 2022 in the amount of $7,500. The tax credit begins to be phased out for a manufacturer that sells 200,000 qualified vehicles for use in the United States. A new qualified plug-in electric drive vehicle is a motor vehicle: 1. Made by a manufacturer 2. Acquired for use or lease by the taxpayer and not for resale 3. The original use of which commences with the taxpayer 4. Treated as a motor vehicle for purposes of Title II of the Clean Air Act 5. Has a gross vehicle weight rating of not more than 14,000 pounds; and 6. Is propelled to a significant degree by an electric motor that draws electricity from a battery with a capacity of not less than service after 2022 and before 2033, the credit is renamed and is now called the Clean Vehicle Credit. The maximum amount of the credit is still $7,500, but it has two components. A $3,750 credit if the vehicle satisfies domestic content requirements for critical minerals in the battery, plus a $3,750 credit if the vehicle satisfies domestic content requirements for battery components. This tax credit is not allowed if a taxpayer’s modified adjusted gross income exceeds $300,000 for a married filing joint return, $225,000 if filing as head of household and $150,000 is filing as single or married filing separate, or if the MSRP for the vehicle exceeds $80,000 for a van, SUV or pick-up truck, or $55,000 for any other vehicle. Since electric vehicles are generally more expensive than combustion engine vehicles, this tax credit is essential to help bring down the cost. It is still very difficult to predict over the long run whether or not it will be more costly to operate an electric vehicle versus a combustion engine vehicle. It will simply depend on the cost of electricity versus the cost of gasoline. How long an electric vehicle battery will last and the cost to replace it will be another issue to contend with down the line. Joseph D.

Dear Savvy Senior, Is it possible to make changes to my Medicare coverage now? I know we’ve passed the fall open enrollment period, but I’ve heard that there are other times of the year benefi ciaries can make changes. What can you tell me? Changed My Mind Dear Changed, Yes! The annual Medicare open enrollment period isn’t your only opportunity to swap out Medicare coverage. There are other opportunities, but the timing of when you can make those changes depends on your specifi c circumstances and the kind of Medicare coverage you have. Here’s what you should know. Medicare Advantage Change If you’re enrolled in a Medicare Advantage Plan, you may be able to use the Medicare Advantage Open Enrollment Period, which occurs each year from Jan. 1 through March 31. During this period, you can switch from your current Medicare Advantage Plan to another Medicare Advantage Plan or to original Medicare with or without a prescription drug plan. You can only make one change during this period, and it will be effective the fi rst of the next month after you make the change. Special Enrollment Depending on your circumstances, you may also qualify for a Special Enrollment Period to change your Medicare health and drug coverage. There are a number of circumstances in which you may have a Special Enrollment Period, such as if you moved outside of your plan’s service area, your Medicare Advantage Plan terminated a signifi cant amount of its network providers, or you are enrolled in a State Pharmaceutical Assistance Program. Those with Extra Help – the federal program that helps pay for drug costs – also have a Special Enrollment Period to enroll in a Part D plan, or switch between plans once per quarter in the fi rst three quarters of the year. If you need to make changes to your coverage but aren’t sure whether you qualify for a Special Enrollment Period, contact your State Health Insurance Assistance Program (SHIP), which provides free Medicare counseling. To fi nd a SHIP counselor in your area visit ShipHelp.org or call 877-839-2675. Also, be aware that if you’re enrolled in a Medicare plan by mistake or because of misleading information, you may be able to disenroll and change plans. Typically, you have the right to change plans if you joined unintentionally, joined based on incorrect or misleading information, or, through no fault of your own, were kept in a plan you did not want. To get help, call Medicare at 800-633-4227 and explain to a customer service representative how you joined the plan by mistake and to request retroactive disenrollment or a Special Enrollment Period. Fall Open Enrollment As you noted in your question, there’s also the Fall Open Enrollment Period that allows all Medicare benefi ciaries – those with original Medicare and Medicare Advantage plans – to make changes. The Fall Open Enrollment Period occurs each year from Oct. 15 through Dec. 7. During this period, you can join a new Medicare Advantage Plan or stand-alone prescription drug plan (Part D) plan. You can also switch between Original Medicare with or without a Part D plan and Medicare Advantage. You can make as many changes as you need during this period, and your last coverage choice will take eff ect Jan. 1. 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.
