THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, January 28, 2022 Page 3 Mayor assists with agreement between landlord and tenants association to protect long-term Malden residents Special to the Advocate M ayor Gary Christenson has helped reach an agreement between United Properties and the United Properties Tenants Association that will help keep long-term residents in Malden. The deal replaces large, immediate rent hikes with smaller, predictable increases over a period of five years, and it covers tenants who resided in three buildings prior to their purchase by the landlord. “This deal protects families who have lived in Malden for many years from being pushed out of our community, and is representative of my Administration’s commitment to helping wherever possible on this most important issue,” said Christenson. “I am grateful for the willingness of United Properties to work with us to keep our neighbors in their homes. I am also inspired by the leadership and solidarity shown by these tenants, who are effective advocates not only for each other, but for all Malden residents.” The agreement is the result of more than six months of talks between Mayor Christenson, Community Development Director Alex Pratt, landlord United Properties, tenant leaders from the United Properties Tenants Association and City Life/ Vida Urbana, a nonprofit that focuses on housing justice and tenant organizing. Fifteen families from 33 Park St., 46-50 Park St. and 84 Linden Ave. are affected. “This agreement was only possible because of the strong leadership from Mayor Christenson and the tenants, and the openness of United Properties to come to the table,” said City Life/Vida Urbana Community Organizer Katie McCann. “We are immensely grateful to the City, United Properties, and the tenant leaders for taking on this challenge and arriving at this fair and equitable compromise. This long-term deal between a landlord and tenant association will be a model throughout Greater Boston for ensuring housing stability.” “I would like to thank the Mayor’s Office for their assistance in reaching an agreement with these longstanding residents,” lord and the tenants, and with a little creativity, we were available to avoid displacement and keep these longterm residents in our community.” “This historic five-year agreeGary Christenson Mayor said United Properties owner Andreas Tsitos. “Now more than ever, United Properties recognizes the importance of affordable housing and preserving tenancies within the City of Malden and we are committed to working with the City for ways that help stabilize tenancies for other residents. Thank you Mayor Christenson, Alex Pratt, and everyone who assisted in this effort.” “Rents have increased substantially in Malden and across the region, and that makes long-time tenants susceptible to big rent increases when older buildings change hands,” said Community Development Director Alex Pratt. “By working with both the landment keeps rents affordable for a diverse group of working-class, longtime residents in three neighboring buildings,” said tenant organizer Lynette Ng. “Thanks to the support and continued engagement of the Mayor’s Office, and the willingness of our landlord United Properties to make a deal, we can continue to call this community home.” “Mayor Christenson has been a steadfast advocate for tenants for many years, and without him this deal would not have been possible,” said tenant organizer Dianne Richardson. “The same is true of my fellow tenants and the City Life/Vida Urbana team, which helped our association form and has guided us along the way. Lastly, I want to thank United Properties owner Andreas Tsitos for working with us to help us stay in Malden. I hope this deal will lead to future collaborations between the public and private sectors to provide much-needed affordable housing.” SNOW BLOWER SALES, SERVICE & REPAIRS Pickup/Delivery Available 1039 BROADWAY, REVERE 781-289-6466 781-289-6466 WWW.BIKERSOUTFITTER.COM WWW.BIKERSOUTFITTER.COM

According to federal law enforcement offi cials, investigators searched Lopez’s residence in November 2018. At the time, he was a suspect in a drive-by shooting in Revere which had happened two months prior. During the search, investigators recovered “numerous fi rearms.” The weapons included a Colt .45 with an obliterated serial number, a Glock .45 and two loaded Glock magazines. A bag containing approximately 94 grams of crack cocaine was also found as well as more than $3,000 in cash. On June 10, 2020, Lopez pleaded guilty to one count of possession with the intent to distribute 28 grams or more of crack cocaine and to one count of possession of a fi rearm with an obliterated serial number.

H.2985 would establish a tax exemption for Massachusetts employers that assist their employees who reside in Massachusetts with paying off student loan debt. The bill sets the annual exemption at $2,000 per employee, helping graduates with college affordability, and employers with workforce recruitment and retention. “The broader economic effects of student loan debt are well documented. Numerous studies show the adverse consequences of debt on indicators from homeownership among young adults to small-business formation, family planning, and overall fi nancial growth and security,” said Lipper-Garabedian. “Student loan debt has a disproportionate eff ect on and can exacerbate wealth gaps of economically vulnerable populations – veterans, seniors, female heads of household, fi rst-generation college students, and communities of color.” “I thank Representative Lipper-Garabedian for her leadership and advocacy in support of a program that will help our next generation of employees manage their student loans,” said McCarron. “This legislation thoughtfully builds on the recruitment and retention successes that employers have seen after implementing a student loan repayment program and Representative Lipper-Garabedian’s proposal will provide students and families with another tool to help fi nance their college education and encourage them to remain in Massachusetts following graduation to join our knowledge-based economy.” “Changing economic deKate Lipper-Garabedian State Representative mands and implications from the pandemic make post-secondary education crucial for residents to adapt to and meet 21st century workforce needs,” said Lipper-Garabedian. “Policymakers should embrace tools that make postsecondary education more affordable.” The Joint Committee on Revenue is expected to make a recommendation on the bill in the coming weeks. 63 Years! • Vinyl Siding • Carpentry Work • Decks • Roofing • Replacement Windows • Free Estimates • Fully Licensed • Fully Insured Prices subject to change Ask about our Conditioner!

Page 6 THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, January 28, 2022 Malden Today, Tomorrow and Yesterday – Carolyn Keohan remembered By Peter F. Levine E ach time we lose another of our elders, we lose a piece of our souls. We mourn. The community mourns. Each time we lose a parent or grandparent, part of us dies with them. Unless. Unless we keep their memory alive. As long as we continue this time-honored tradition, they will not die in vain. An old Jewish prayer goes like this: “As long as we live, they too will live; for they are now a part of us; as we remember them.” From what good people have told me, Cathy MacMullin’s mom was a strong, dignified, principled and beautiful woman. A huge regret is that I never got to meet Carolyn A. (Barthelmes) Keohan face to face. I would have loved to have gone one-on-one with Carolyn. But she passed away on January 10 of this year at 84 years lived. I wrote this piece a while back. Cathy’s mom was the impetus for the article, but it morphed into something a little bit more. A short love story for all our moms is what I would like to think. So, Cathy, my sincerest condolences to you and your family. It’s powerful pain, Cathy, but you have friends that care, a lifetime of memories and a community to lean on. My article this week is a Mother’s Day love letter. It is authored by Cathy MacMullin (or “Cathy Mac” as she is known to just about every single person in Malden) with a little help from her friends and is specifically targeted at all the great moms from Newland Street. The ones that nurtured a generation of outstanding children/citizens out of the Newland/Bowdoin Street neighborhood (not to be confused with Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood, by the way). But make no mistake; the message presented here is universal. For the love and sacrifice I saw out of Newland Street through Cathy’s words I saw the mirror image less than two miles away in Edgeworth. It is for all the moms out there actually. As I read through Cathy’s initial draft, I saw my mom. I saw Mrs. Laura Damiano. I saw Mrs. Gloria Disano. I saw Mrs. Eleanor Molinari. I saw Mrs. Dorothy Scibelli. Mothers from another era – mothers from the “Mad Men’ era” – deck stacked against them, making sacrifices and fighting like Viking Moms to ensure their children felt loved. That their children had what they needed – that their children had the best possible childhood they could possibly offer them, by any means necessary. Believe me on that one. Making sacrifices that none of us will ever know about, they would have it no other way. So, although this takes place on the “other side of the tracks” (as Cathy likes to rib me about from time to time), I feel as though Cathy’s mom Carol was doing the Lord’s work just as my mom but only a few short miles away. I have a feeling that Dorothy Drago Levine and Carol MacMullin Keohan would have been the best of friends. So, without further ado, let’s get this party started: This article is about what our mothers taught us; community/neighborhood/friendships. Those three words don’t hold up as well today it seems. And we miss that. Would you knock on your neighbor’s door and ask for Law Offices of Terrence W. Kennedy 512 Broadway, Everett • Criminal Defense • Personal Injury • Medical Malpractice Tel: (617) 387-9809 Cell: (617) 308-8178 twkennedylaw@gmail.com The late Carolyn A. (Barthelmes) Keohan a “cup of sugar”? Sadly, not likely. Well, let’s talk about growing up in the Newland Street area. Every mom was known, as a sign of respect, of course, as Mrs. Goldman or Mrs. Smith. Never by their first name. They took care of their own children and any of the other children in the neighborhood if their moms were busy. Out grocery shopping or running errands or whatever – didn’t matter. We would not hesitate to go next door to borrow the basics: milk, sugar, instant coffee, or cocoa to make whoopie pies. That’s the way it was. That’s the only way we knew. We were lucky: We had a bunch of dedicated mothers that got together and started the Newland Street Association; this group made sure we all had fun on our 4th of July at Miller Park. We had road races, basketball shooting contests, threelegged races and many other activities. The prizes: ice cream and hot dogs – always plentiful. Our moms made sure of that. Some of our mothers had green thumbs and a way with plants, on occasion giving us lessons on why and how to stay away from them. Then there were other mothers who took pride in their little piece of earth, the lawns of Newland Street. You never wanted to feel the wrath of (any) mom for recklessly cutting across their lawn. That Newland Street Mom’s wrath was known from coast to coast! Who remembers the circle between Newland and Alden with the beautiful flowers and big American flag? Thank you for that, Franco. Who remembers the three “Trees” (only two standing today)? I do. And always will. Mom encouraged us to “go out and play.” The “fresh air is good for you,” she would say. Sports happened 24/7. We had a sponge-ball diamond with two umpires (who can name them?) with clothesline poles as first and third bases. In the winter, the basketball court was frozen over where we battled on ice skates and sometimes played hockey (insert smiley face). Marbles were popular as well as “relivio,” but when those streetlights went on we scampered home lest we feel that mom’s wrath once again. That’s the way it was. Come the cold weather, our moms made sure all the kids in the neighborhood dressed warmly before they sent us out to play. If winter clothes were needed, our moms would head to Sparks or into Boston to find a deal on coats, hats and gloves. Hello, Filene’s basement! Moms were wicked smaht! If our boots weren’t waterproof, Wonder bread bags helped to ensure we’d stay dry. Love ya for that, mom! As a neighborhood in the summer, we hardly went away. And we really did not care. With a mother’s ingenuity and a D.I.Y. attitude, we made the best of our Newland Street playland. We thought we had our very own summer camp right in our very own backyard: small swimming pools, clothesline tents with 45 rpms playing on the record player, picnic areas. If we were lucky, one of our mothers who worked at a sub shop (who can guess who?) brought home subs for everyone. That summer feeling – priceless in the Newland Street Projects. My mind wanders back to Bob Miller and the “Y Extension” – the dances, the camping trips, riding those minibikes, the legendary Camp Madaca and those endless games of floor hockey. Our childhood is full of so many unique (and not so unique) memories, most created by our mothers. Who remembers Zarex, “Jolly Man, “The Whip Truck, “Jimmy the Milkman,” movies in the park, sledding up at Daniels Hill and Thursday Nights? Mrs. Russo and our famous ice-cream trips to the beach with Cathy Doherty. Such memories! We had a police scanner in every home, not because we feared the police but because it kept our moms occupied, amused and informed. When the mothers heard the police would be coming our way, they would call in the brood and bring them safely home. Funny story: One long ago night a group of about 20 of our moms were sitting in a circle enjoying their favorite “beverage” when somebody yelled out that the police were on their way. When the men in blue arrived, there were 20 empty lawn chairs. True story. “This is the end, beautiful friend, this is the end, my only friend, the end” – while this piece could go on, like, for another thousand words or so, due to column length restrictions, I am tasked with bringing it home. This Mother’s Day let’s remember what they taught us. Whether you were from the far reaches of Edgeworth or from Newland Street, don’t matter. Our mothers were universal in their love and protection of us. The love and respect for the “neighborhood” was of utmost importance. Cathy told me that if there was a theme song for the Newland Street Community, it had to be “Lean on Me” by Bill Withers. That’s the way it was, she said. That’s how it will always be in Malden and Newland Street, she continued. Thank you, mothers of Newland Street, and all mothers out there, for the unconditional love you gave to us and any other lost soul no matter what they looked like or where they came from. And for instilling in us pride of community. Our small piece of Mother Earth, heaven on earth: Newland Street. Postscript 1: So many moms, so little column space. This one’s for you: the Spinneys, the Farrys, the Willcoxes, the Sparrows, the Longs, the Eccelstons, the McNultys, the Dohertys, the Geers, the Mcdonalds, the Smiths, the Reddicks, the Spignisis, the Toppings, the Blundells, the Graffins, the Kanes, the Faheys, the Tuxburys, the Stokes, the Strums, the DeSimones, the Vinings, the O’Briens, the Sullivans, the Marshalls, the Tamagnas, the Hydes, the Lombards, the Rogers, the Gagliardis, the Redfords, the Greenbaums and the many others that we’ll remember at another time. Postscript 2: “A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials heavy and sudden fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends desert us; when trouble thickens around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts”—Washington Irving

Voters in one of the districts, Chelsea, voted against approving the funding, but the measure passed in overwhelming fashion, capturing 83.5% of the ballots overall. All that had been needed in the final balloting was a simple majority, but voters in the 12 districts combined for a large majority in favor. The exact question voted on Tuesday was to accept a $141 million grant from the MassaCONSTRUCTION | FROM PAGE 1 include The Advocate cities of Malden, Saugus and Revere, as well as Chelsea, Melrose, North Reading, Reading, Stoneham, Wakefield, Winchester, Winthrop and Woburn.

Malden’s voters were aligned with the overall favorable percentage, with 81.5% voting “yes” for the project. Unofficial results from Malden were similar to those around the district, with 668 voting in favor of the proposal and 151 voting against it.

Northeast Metro Tech Superintendent-Director David DiBarri said he is thrilled at the overwhelming support voters showed for the project on Tuesday. “We are deeply grateful to the voters in our 12 sendable to send more students in the future. As for Malden’s contribution to the funding for the new school, the local share would be a $220,000 assessment in FY 2023, according to reports. The payment would then be $221,000 in 2024, $667,000 in 2025 and then $1.2 million per year in 2026 and the same moving forward for the remaining 26 years of the remaining 30year period.

Meals on Wheels essential during winter months T he winter months are notoriously harder on older adults, especially during this pandemic, which is why Mystic Valley Elder Services (MVES) stresses the importance of virtual and phone assessments, proper heating, physical checkups by your doctor, social interactions – even if we cannot do it face-to-face – transportation assistance and nutritious meals. “Eating good, whole, nutritious foods in the winter months can go a long way in helping older adults regulate their body temperature and stay warm,” said MVES Registered Dietician Candace Quigley. “For those who may not want to or lack the ability to cook, the Meals on Wheels program provides regular nutritious food.” The Meals on Wheels program provides seniors with the necessary nutritional support to protect them against food insecurity, and to help them continue to live independent and fulfilling lives. MVES has provided home-delivered meals for more than 45 years. “Meals on Wheels is for vulnerable older adults who require nutritional support to safely continue living in the community,” said MVES Director of Nutrition Angie Fitzgerald. “Despite the challenges COVID-19 has brought, we have continued to serve home-delivered meals to consumers, and the number of those needing meals delivered has increased.” Since the pandemic started nearly two years ago, the program has served nearly 60,000 meals per month to homebound adults compared to 50,000 meals per month prior to the pandemic. The home-delivered meals service includes the following options as needed: chilled-tobe-heated noontime meals, cold-pack breakfast and supper, clinical diet meals, kosher meals, and frozen weekend meals. In some cases, MVES can provide cultural or ethnically preferred meals in certain communities. “MVES’ Meals on Wheels program ensures that a friendly face of the driver and healthy meal arrives during the cold months and all year round to those who need this essential service to remain healthy, well fed, and safe in their homes,” said Fitzgerald. When providing the meals to the individual, drivers also offer regular check-ins, at a safe distance, to make sure the older adult is doing well during the cold weather. This can be done by a warm smile and welcoming wave. If you are interested in knowing more about the Meals on Wheels program, please visit MVES at mves.org or call 781324-7705.

That’s why Democrats enacted the American Rescue Plan, which provided free vaccines, enhanced wages through Medicaid, improved safety requirements for workers, and essential financial support for families, like the Child Tax Credit,” said Assistant Speaker Clark. “I am proud to stand with 1199SEIU Assistant Speaker of the U.S. Congress Katherine Clark joined 1199SEIU United Healthcare East workers at a Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) drive in Malden on Tuesday. workers today in Malden and every day as I work in Washington to pass President Biden’s Build Back Better agenda. Investing in the care workforce is essential – to our recovery and our ability to rebuild a more just and more inclusive economy.” Nearly 600 Personal Care Attendants (PCAs) reside in Malden, and over 1,500 PCAs reside in Assistant Speaker Clark’s district. Since the beginning of the pandemic, many health care workers have struggled to access PPE to protect themselves on the job, and that protection has become even more vital with the recent spike in Omicron cases. The American Rescue Plan has provided essential workers in the Commonwealth with increased wages and PPE as well as general support for working families through lower health care costs and lower taxes. Democrats are also working to pass the Build Back Better agenda, which includes $150 billion to expand Medicaid coverage for home care services for seniors and people with disabilities and raises the pay of inhome care professionals, which would be the most transformative investment in home care in decades.

Page 14 THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, January 28, 2022 Eagles swimmers bring home road victory A fter a tough week of practices, the Mystic Valley Regional Charter School Eagles were back in the water at Greater Lawrence Technical School. The Eagles took the chance to shake up the lineup a little bit to get some different swimmers in different events, but the result was the same – the Eagles walked away with the 90-67 victory. Leading off the meet, the medley relay teams went with a one-two-three finish with the top spot going to the Mystic Valley A Relay of freshman Adrian Chang, senior Matthew Loue and juniors Ramy Elaafer and Daniel Nguyen. Following close behind was the B Relay comprised of freshman Lana Santos and grade 8 students Britney Nayiga, Khloe Co and Isabella Cirame. In the 200 Freestyle, sophomore Jason Yan led the way with a lifetime best of 2:01.59. Yan was followed closely by Grade 8 student Jaden Anthony in 2:02.94; Anthony continues to rack up points at a clip not seen by many at his grade level in Eagles’ history. As the lineup was a little different, sprint specialist junior Armando Indresano took on the challenge in the 200 IM, winning the event in a state qualifying cut of 2:10.91 and a top10 all-time Eagles swim. Jeremy Cheng continued his stellar junior campaign, leading an Eagles’ one-two-three finish in the 50 freestyle. Cheng’s time of 22.75 was a lifetime best. Cheng was followed-up by Elaafer and Matthew Loue. In the 100 butterfly, junior Aiden Acuna led another Eagles’ one-two-three finish, in a time of 56.41, a state cut and another top-10 all-time Eagles swim. Grade 8 student Thomas Sodeyama-Cardoso continued his dominance in the distance events with a lifetime best of 5:35.21. The 200 Freestyle relays continued the strong performances across the board. Acuna added another first-place finish in the 100 backstroke, while Indresano notched another first-place finish in the 100 breaststroke. “After a rather tough week of practices…the team finished off with some major speed and dedication. We could not be happier with their performance,” said coach Andrew DiGiacomo. “As we move into the last month of the season everything we are asking the swimmers to do they are doing. If we continue on this path we expect a truly great end to this swim season.” MVRCS girls’ basketball team sweeps the week T he girls’ basketball team of Mystic Valley Regional Charter School captured a road victory over KIPP Academy before coming home to Eastern Avenue to turn away visiting Whitter High School, improving to 5-4. Early in the game against KIPP, the Eagles came out and established a strong rebound presence while looking to push the tempo. The first quarter ended with KIPP on top 10-8. The Eagles kept the same tempo into the second quarter with both teams struggling to score. KIPP ended the quarter ahead 16-15. Sophomore Ava Green, who grabbed nine rebounds, kept control of the boards underneath. Moving into the second half, the Eagles established control by getting after it on the glass and finishing close range. A 1110 third quarter knotted the contest at 27. From there, senior captain Liliana Palomino, who scored eight points in the fourth quarter, and freshman Bailey DeLeire, who chipped in nine points, stepped up and sealed the win with a final score of 41-30. “These girls continue to push for improvement game in and game out,” said coach Jonathan Currier following his team’s victory. “We have had a lot of different lineups with COVID and other setbacks, but we keep picking each other up. Losing Mairead St. Clair in the second quarter certainly hurt us, but Ava Green, Lily Palomino and Breana Nansamba [11 rebounds] stepped up.” Next up was Whittier. The Eagles had a simple game plan from the opening tip: to out-rebound their opponent and control the possession battle. The opening quarter saw great half court execution by DeLeire, who scored a career high 20 points and grabbed four rebounds. DeLeire opened the quarter with the first eight points for the Eagles. Nansamba continued her hot shooting, hitting two long jumpers and stabilizing the Eagles to a 14-12 lead at the end of the first quarter. In the second quarter, Mystic Valley executed on the defensive and offensive glass, but could not convert close range or at the free throw line, falling behind to a 23-21 halftime deficit. The Eagles crushed the rebound battle to the tune of 47-13 with Green grabbed 18 rebounds and scoring three points while Palomino pulled down 19 rebounds and scored four points. The Eagles used that advantage to pull away as DeLeire poured in 10 points in the second half of the 4133 win. Junior Sofia Blandino excelled on the defensive end all night, recording five steals and scoring two points. “I was extremely pleased by the girls focusing in at halftime and coming out aggressive on the boards and to the basket in the second half,” said Currier. “They proved to themselves they can battle back and take control of the game with the rebound advantage. Liliana Palomino and Ava Green racked up career highs on the glass, and Bailey DeLeire scored her career high to help lead us to victory.” New report examines state of education in Massachusetts amid pandemic T he Rennie Center for Education Research and Policy recently released its annual status report on public education to a virtual audience of nearly 300 state leaders, legislators, educators and community members.

After two years contending with the increased demands of teaching during the COVID-19 pandemic, from adjusting to changing public health protocols to supporting the mental health and wellbeing of students living through trauma and isolation, teachers are stretched thin. Research shows that one in four teachers considered leaving their position at the end of the last school year. As the pandemic continues into 2022 there is an urgent need to better support educators. The Rennie Center’s new report, Investing in Educators: How Massachusetts can Support Educators Through the Pandemic and Beyond, offers recommendations for uplifting teachers right now as well as putting a system in place to offer long-term support and training for current and future educators. “The past two years are a testament to just how much educators can accomplish, even under the most challenging circumstances. But students need so much support right now and we can’t keep asking more and more of an exhausted, overwhelmed workforce,” said Chad d’Entremont, executive director of the Rennie Center. It’s time to adapt the way our education system invests in its key players: teachers. We need to come out of this pandemic stronger, and that means offering tools and resources to help teachers meet the diverse needs of their students.” The report highlights the promising work of districts and community organizations in Boston, Lawrence, Revere, and Springfield that have found innovative ways to support teachers “Even amidst everything going on, teachers continue to inspire their students. They’re working long hours and extending themselves far beyond their job descriptions to support students in and out of the classroom. There’s new technology, new curriculum, and we’re moving full speed ahead on helping students recover academically and socially. All of this takes time, both to do the work and to learn how to do it. While the work of educators is deeply rewarding, it can also be incredibly hard--as intellectually rigorous as it is emotionally draining,” said Shakera Ford Walker, Boston Public Schools’ assistant superintendent for Teacher Leadership and Development, whose department’s work to support educators through professional learning and collaboration is featured in the Rennie Center’s report. “Teachers want to feel valued, trusted, and respected. They want their voices to be heard and used to inform the policy and practices that shape their work and impact the learning and lives of their students.” The annual Condition of Education series’ Action Guide and Data Dashboard examine how schools are functioning during the pandemic, delving into a range of state and local data from school internet speeds to K-12 and college enrollment rates to student absenteeism. The report also looks at the impacts of key indicators like educator diversity and out-of-school suspension rates. The event featured remarks from Massachusetts Education Secretary James Peyser as well as a panel discussion with all three state education commissioners—Early Education and Care Commissioner Samantha Aigner-Treworgy, Elementary and Secondary Education Commissioner Jeffrey Riley and Higher Education Commissioner Carlos Santiago. “The fortitude, flexibility, compassion, and just plain hard work that educators at all levels have demonstrated, and continue to display, is a testament to their unwavering commitment to the wellbeing of their students and their communities,” said Peyser. “I’m deeply impressed, although not surprised, by our educators’ response to this crisis, and I know I speak for the Governor and Lt. Governor when I tell you how deeply grateful we are for their service to the Commonwealth.”

If the spouse at home transAs long as one spouse is still living in the home, if the other spouse enters a nursing home, the home will be considered a non-countable asset. Therefore, MassHealth’s estate recovery will not place a lien on the home in order to recoup MassHealth benefits paid on behalf of the institutionalized spouse. Once MassHealth benefits are approved for the institutionalized spouse, it is important to then transfer the home to the spouse at home. If the institutionalized spouse is not mentally competent, an attorney in fact acting under the authority of a durable power of attorney can execute the deed on behalf of the institutionalized spouse. Another reason why durable powers of attorney are so important. Once the home is transferred to the spouse living at home, he or she then has the option of transferring the home to a caretaker child, an irrevocable trust or even a sibling that has an equity interest in the home. The reason for this is to avoid the possibility of the spouse at home actually dying before the institutionalized spouse and having the home vest entirely in the institutionalized spouse. Upon his or her death, MassHealth estate recovery will then be able to recover MassHealth benefits paid once it is notified of the death of the institutionalized fers to an irrevocable trust and five years have gone by, the home would be protected and would not be part of the probate estate upon his or her death. In the case of a single person, so long as the box is checked off on the MassHealth application stating that he or she intends to return home, MassHealth will not place a lien on the home. However, upon that person’s death, MassHealth will be able to recover against the probate estate. MassHealth will also place a lien on the home once it determines there is no reasonable expectation of that person returning home. MassHealth will, however, only be able to recover actual benefits paid for the institutionalized spouse, which will be at the lower monthly Medicaid rates, as opposed to the much higher private pay rates. This might serve to protect much of the equity in the home, depending on how long he or she resides in the nursing home. Vacation homes would be considered a countable asset. A vacation home would have to be sold in order to qualify for MassHealth. If dealing with a married couple, the sales proceeds could be used to purchase a Medicaid annuity for the spouse at home. If the vacation home were to be rented out at a profit, then the vacation home would then be a non-countable asset whether dealing with a single person or married couple. Transferring vacation homes to an irrevocable trust as part of advanced planning may also be a good option to protect the vacation home. Joseph D.

She then went on to work as secretary to the president of Converse Rubber Company for many years. Bobbi married John "Jack" Treacy on September 11, 1954. Much to Bobbi's dismay it was on the very same day that Hurricane Edna decided to blow through Massachusetts. Luck was with the couple though, and by the time of the ceremony, electricity had been restored and the wedding could proceed. Unfortunately, only half of their guests were able to attend but as disappointing as it was, it was short lived. Luck struck again and the most spectacular double rainbow appeared over the church to greet the newlyweds as they exited the church. Good fortune ensued as the following September the couple welcomed their only child, Lynne Victoria. The family moved to Danvers in 1960 where they made many dear and lifelong friends that were as close as family. They were including but not limited to: Joan and Nick DiPaolo; Barbara and Jack Yates; and Jean and Christ Bouras. The group affectionately referred to themselves as "The Rat Pack." The herd has thinned in the last couple of years, but many members are still enjoying each other's company in their golden years. Bobbi was an active participant in the Danvers community. She was a founding member of theater group now known as The North Shore Players.

Bobbi was a dedicated and loyal employee of orthodontists Dr. William Saris and most recently, Dr. Adrian Costanza. The Costanza family was most gracious and kind and treated Bobbi as family. Bobbi loved them immensely. Bobbi was a perfectionist with any endeavor she undertook. She was an extremely kind, generous, and thoughtful woman. She demonstrated an unwavering devotion to her family and friends. She loved showering them with most exquisitely wrapped gifts for any and all occasions. Bobbi also found joy in cooking and entertaining in her immaculate and beautifully decorated home. It should come as no surprise to anyone that knew her that she also has a black belt … in shopping! Bobbi was a familiar fixture at her "Bermuda Triangle" of favorite stores: Marshalls; T.J. Maxx; and HomeGoods. It is the family's hope that in heaven she has been upgraded to Neiman Marcus. Although Bobbi found plenty of joy in her long and wonderful life, her ultimate joy was in the form of her two grandsons: Craig and Scott. She took bragging rights to a new level when it came to "her boys". She was a constant and positive influence in their lives. Bobbi was responsible for teaching them good manners such has never wearing a baseball cap inside any building, cooking skills, how to set a proper table, the importance of a clean home and to even play poker (which she learned while working at Converse and when the guys needed a fourth to play, Bobbi sat in.

Another $25 million would be used for the acquisition and distribution of high-quality personal protective masks, including N95s and KN95s, to be distributed by February 28, 2022 to children and faculty in elementary and secondary public school districts. The measure also mandates that the Baker administration pursue the highest allowable rate of federal reimbursement for the $55 million package. “In the last couple of years we have learned a lot about how to treat, prevent and reduce the risks associated with the virus,” said Rep. Bill Driscoll (D-Milton), the House chair of the Committee on COVID-19 and Emergency Preparedness and Management. “We held additional oversight hearings in December and January because we wanted to understand the administration’s current and evolving plans to address Omicron and what might be around the corner in the weeks and months ahead. The funding included in this legislation aims to close several gaps regarding accessibility to testing and high fi ltration masks, particularly in schools. By providing the funding resources and several other extensions, like remote participation in public meetings, the commonwealth can take stronger and focused measures toward driving infection rates down and hopefully keep them down in the months ahead.” (A “Yes” vote is for the bill.) Rep. Paul DonatoYes Rep. Steven Ultrino Yes CONSOLIDATED AMENDMENT TO COVID PACKAGE (H 4340) House 158-1, approved a package of several amendments to the COVID-19 package. The amendments were based on 23 individual amendments fi led by individual representatives. Supporters said the amendments would enhance the bill and help in the fight against COVID-19. Rep. Jeff Turco (D-Winthrop), the only representative to vote against the package of amendments, said he voted against them because they included substantive changes to the tort laws of the commonwealth. “Specifically, the amendment included language that granted hospitals and medical providers immunity from liability for acts of BHRC| SEE PAGE 20 Like us on Facebook advocate newspaper Facebook.com/Advocate.news.ma ~ Home of the Week ~ SAUGUS....Wonderful 5 room condo featuring updated kitchen, dining room, fireplace living room with access to private balcony, great open floor plan, master bedroom offers private bath with convenient stand-up shower, second bedroom offers slider to balcony, convenient in-unit laundry hook-up, updated electric heat pump (approximately two years old), replacement windows, extra storage in lower level, two parking spaces, inground pool for summer enjoyment, super convenient location off Lynn Fells Parkway, located in desirable Hillview West.

Each year, around 250,000 Americans have a mini-stroke, but less than half of them realize what’s happening. That’s because the symptoms are usually fl eeting – lasting only a few minutes, up to an hour or two – causing most people to ignore them or brush them off as no big deal. But anyone who has had a ministroke is much more likely to have a full-blown stroke, which can cause long-term paralysis, impaired memory, loss of speech or vision, and even death. A mini-stroke is caused by a temporary blockage of blood fl ow to the brain and can be a warning sign that a major stroke may soon be coming. That’s why mini-strokes need to be treated like emergencies. Who’s Vulnerable? A person is more likely to suff er a TIA or stroke if they are overweight or inactive, have high blood pressure, elevated cholesterol or diabetes. Other factors that boost the risks are age (over 60), smoking, heart disease, atrial fi brillation and having a family history of stroke. Men also have a greater risk for stroke than women, and African Americans and Hispanics are at higher risk than those of other races. Warning Signs The symptoms of a mini-stroke are the same as those of a fullblown stroke, but can be subtle and short-lived, and they don’t leave any permanent damage. They include any one or combination of the following: • Sudden numbness or weakness of the face, arm, or leg, especially on one side of the body. • Sudden confusion, trouble speaking or understanding. • Sudden trouble seeing in one or both eyes. • Sudden trouble walking, dizziness, loss of balance or coordination. • Sudden, severe headache with no known cause. The easiest way to identify a stroke is to use the F.A.S.T. test to identify the symptoms. F (Face): Ask the person to smile. Does one side of the face droop? A (Arm): Ask the person to raise both arms. Does one arm drift downward? S (Speech): Ask the person to say a simple sentence. Is their speech slurred? T (Time): If you observe any of these signs of stroke, call 911. Get Help If these warning signs sound like what happened to your mom, but they went away, she needs to go to the emergency room or nearby stroke center. If the doctor suspects a TIA, he or she will run a series of tests to determine what caused it and assess her risk of a future stroke. Once the cause has been determined, the goal of treatment is to correct the abnormality and prevent a full-blown stroke. Depending on the cause(s), her doctor may prescribe medication to reduce the tendency for blood to clot or may recommend surgery or a balloon procedure (angioplasty).

My 72-yearold mother had a spell a few weeks ago where she suddenly felt dizzy for no apparent reason and had trouble walking and speaking, but it went away, and she seems fi ne now.

Steven Ultrino Yes HOW LONG WAS LAST WEEK'S SESSION? Beacon Hill Roll Call tracks the length of time that the House and Senate were in session each week. Many legislators say that legislative sessions are only one aspect of the Legislature's job and that a lot of important work is done outside of the House and Senate chambers. They note that their jobs also involve committee work, research, constituent work and other matters that are important to their districts. Critics say that the Legislature does not meet regularly or long enough to debate and vote in public view on the thousands of pieces of legislation that have been fi led. They note that the infrequency and brief length of sessions are misguided and lead to irresponsible late-night sessions and a mad rush to act on dozens of bills in the days immediately preceding the end of an annual session. During the week of January 17-21, the House met for a total of six hours and 50 minutes and the Senate met for a total of one hour and two minutes. Mon.

Baker to file for $200M in Chapter 90 local transportation funding T he Baker-Polito Administration recently announced plans to file legislation next week seeking $200 million in Chapter 90 funding to help all 351 cities and towns in Massachusetts improve transportation infrastructure and address needs within their local communities. This funding request complements the $31.5 million increase in unrestricted local aid that will be included in the Administration’s Fiscal Year 2023 (FY23) budget proposal, as announced by Lt. Governor Karyn Polito at the Massachusetts Municipal Association meeting this past week. Keeping a commitment made by the Governor and Lt.

Page 22 BAKER | FROM PAGE 20 ter 90 funding would be available to local cities and towns for FY23. After taking offi ce in 2015, Baker quickly directed the Massachusetts Department of Transportation to release $100 million in Chapter 90 funds that had been promised the previous year, fulfilling a commitment made to cities and towns. The Baker-Polito Administration has released a total of $1.56 billion in funding through the Chapter 90 formula, and if approved by the Legislature, this most recent request would bring the total to $1.76 billion. “The Baker-Polito Administration continues to focus on supporting cities and towns by providing critical resources through the Chapter 90 program and through increases in local aid,” said Administration and Finance THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, January 28, 2022 Secretary Michael Heffernan. “We are proud to once again request these important resources which give municipalities the tools they need to eff ectively improve their communities.” Polito also announced that the Administration’s FY23 budget proposal will include $1.2 billion for Unrestricted General Government Aid (UGGA), a $31.5 million increase over Fiscal Year 2022 and equal to a projected 2.7 percent increase in tax revenue in the FY23 consensus revenue estimate. Including the FY23 budget proposal, the Administration has increased the total annual UGGA distribution by $253.9 million since taking offi ce. “The Chapter 90 funding program is a lifeline for municipalities as they manage and maintain their roadways and bridges,” said Transportation Secretary/ CEO Jamey Tesler. “Additionally, FOR LEASE - COMMERCIAL PROPERTY the Baker/Polito Administration has created and funded municipal programs like the Complete Streets Funding Program, Shared Streets and Spaces, Municipal Small Bridge, Municipal Pavement and Local Bottleneck Reduction, which have not only provided a generational investment directly to communities but helped repair and modernize the transportation network of the Commonwealth.” Advocate Call now!
