Safeguarding health, districtwide, is a top priority and an ongoing process with continuous monitoring, Malden Superintendent of Schools John Oteri told the members of the Malden School Committee and others in attendance at the second meeting of the new year on Monday night at the Malden Senior Center. Malden school officials have teamed up with the Malden Public Health Director and public safety agencies in a proactive approach to the health of students and staff. Supt. John Oteri said he recently met with Malden Public Health Director Chris Webb and members of the city’s Emergency Management Team to discuss health issues, planned responses and actions as they pertain to the Malden Public Schools. Early Learning Center Principal Peter Dolan also serves as the Malden school system’s emergency and safety management director. Topics of discussion were flu season as well as the potential impact of the coronavirus outbreak in other parts of the world. “We are continuously monitoring reports and advisories from both the federal CDC [Centers for Disease Control] and state and local agencies on both the flu and the coronavirus,” Supt. Oteri said. “Our top priorities are to keep our public health and safety officials and personnel informed and our students and staff safe, health-wise.” SCHOOL | SEE PAGE 13 primary, the district, which includes all of Melrose, Precincts 4, 5, and 6 in Wakefield and Precinct 2, Ward 5 in Malden, handed Lipper-Garabedian, a Melrose councillor-at-large, an easy victory over Wakefield Town Councillor Ann McGonigle Santos and Malden’s Mathew Helman, a former communications director for State Senator Jason Lewis.

She went through the field undefeated, much like her personal state championship run last winter, claiming the Tourney Championship at 147 lbs. Costa also competed in the recent Senators All-Girls Wrestling Tournament in Orange, Mass. Again, she claimed the tourney championship at 147 lbs., whirling through the competition with three first-period pins, two within the first minute of the match. In other dual meets for Malden this season, she has competed against male opponents and been successful in her weight class as well. “She (Costa) works very hard and really wants to learn and get better,” said Malden coach Rin Van. Last season was the first-ever the Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association (MIAA) offered an All-Girls State Wrestling Tournament, so Costa managed to make history twice, as the first Malden High state girls titlist and also the first 145-lb. state champion in an MIAA-held state tournament. This year’s All-Girls State Wrestling Tournament will be held on Saturday, Feb. 29 at Methuen High School.

Page 2 THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, February 7, 2020 Students urge Malden to adopt the UN’s sustainable development goals By Barbara Taormina climate change, reducing income inequality and establishF ixing the world over the next 10 years may seem like an overly ambitious plan, but students and teachers from Linden STEAM Academy are convinced it can be done, and they met with the City Council late last month to ask for their help. Linden science teachers Christina Rosenthal and Lianne Mokfienski Ramos and several students presented an overview of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, 17 global objectives set by the UN General Assembly to build a better world by 2030. The Sustainable Development Goals, or the SDGs, are a hefty to-do list that includes ending poverty, eliminating hunger, achieving gender equality, fighting ing justice. “We want to ask you to join us in considering making Malden a part of this global movement,” said Rosenthal. “We want to leverage the diversity of Malden to connect with other cities around the globe and work together toward a common objective, the United Nations’ SDGs,” she said. Each of the goals have measurable targets so organizations and communities that embrace the SDGs can track their progress and plan their next steps, she explained. “The lack of U.S. commitment to the SDGs means there is a real opportunity for Malden to become a national leader,” added Rosenthal. Ramos explained that the SDGs are a guide that would be localized to fit Malden’s challenges and needs. “To implement the goals, we need to make them our own in accordance with our own shared values, diverse culture and social and economic priorities,” she said. She pointed to Malden’s lead line replacement program as an example of a local effort in sync with the SDG to ensure clean drinking water and another goal to develop resilient infrastructure. Ramos said the Linden group came to the City Council meeting to ask councillors to create a committee of members of different governing boards to raise awareness of the SDGs through meaningful discussions with the community. She said the committee would be able to set targets and measure Malden’s progress toward achieving the goals using specific indicators. “We believe Malden, through the SDGs, can improve the quality of life on a local level while leading the world on environmental, economic and social issues,” she said. Students told councillors they believe the SDGs are the right strategy to fix the world for the future, their future. But they stressed that they need the help and support of Malden’s adults and community leaders. Urging a city to join a global dialogue to promote peace and prosperity by adopting a set of sustainable development goals isn’t a typical middle school activity, and councillors praised the Linden teachers and students for their work and commitment. Councillors also wanted them to know the city is already engaged in sustainable development. Ward 5 Councillor Barbara Murphy invited them to a meeting of Malden River Works, a group developing plans to restore the Malden River, which she said ties in perfectly with several of the sustainable development goals. Councillor-at-Large Stephen Winslow encouraged them to participate in discussions on the city’s vulnerability plan, which focuses on strategies to address climate change. Ward 6 Councillor David Camell mentioned some of accomplishments of the city’s Energy Efficiency Committee that have made the city greener and more sustainable. Sen.

He worked closely with the Green Energy Consumer Alliance in the development of the bill. Key provisions of the climate policy package include: • Setting a statewide greenhouse gas limit for the year 2050 of “net zero” emissions. To achieve this, An Act setting next-generation climate policy requires the state to hit near-term limits in 2025, 2030 and every five years thereafter; to set sub-limits for transportation, buildings, solid waste, natural gas distribution and other major sectors; and to make implementation plans that are “clear, comprehensive, and specific.” • Establishing the Massachusetts Climate Policy Commission, which would be a new, independent public watchdog to oversee the government’s handling of the unfolding crisis of climate change. Commissioners would be charged with offering a nonpartisan, science-based view of the problem as it plays out in Massachusetts with its attendant natural, economic and demographic impacts and risks. • Reflecting the price of carbon. Under the bill, the Administration would be free to choose among various market based forms of pricing carbon – including a revenue-neutral fee or a regional “cap and trade” system similar to the Transportation Climate Initiative (TCI), but he or she would have to do so by Jan. 1, 2022, for transportation; Jan. 1, 2025, for commercial, industrial and institutional buildings; and by Jan. 1, 2030, for residential buildings.

City reviews cannabis shop applications according to schedule By Barbara Taormina T hree companies seeking special permits for retail marijuana businesses will have their applications reviewed at City Council hearings sometime this spring, while a fourth applicant has dropped plans for a cannabis shop at 616 Broadway. Last summer and throughout the fall, the Cannabis Licensing and Enforcement Commission interviewed eight companies with proposals for retail marijuana businesses. Commission members agreed that four of the applicants should move forward to the next step in the licensing process, a public meeting to introduce their business plans to neighbors and the community at large. After Misty Mountain Shop, Standard Naturals, MassMedicum and Craft Cultivation Group held their meetings, they had 60 days to apply to the City Council for a special permit. Dr. James Kurnick missed the application deadline for MassMedicum, a retail shop with a plan to highlight therapeutic uses of marijuana. Although commission members were willing to consider giving MassMedicum a chance to restart the licensing process, they acknowledged the community’s opposition to locating the shop in a densely populated residential neighborhood along with concerns about traffic and parking. That may have convinced Kurnick to pass on Malden. Special permit applications from Standard Naturals for a recreational marijuana shop next to Kappy’s on Route 1, and Misty Mountain Shop, which has proposed opening a retail business at 323 Commercial St., were submitted on time to the Permits, Inspections and Planning Department. Building Commissioner Nelson Miller, who is also a member of the city’s Cannabis Licensing and Enforcement Commission, had 30 days to review the applications and forward them to City Clerk Greg Lucey, who, in turn, had 65 days to schedule the City Council’s special permit hearings. Craft Cultivation is working on a special permit application for a cannabis cultivation, manufacturing and retail business at 1130 Eastern Ave., but still has time to meet the 60-day deadline. Once a special permit hearing is closed, the City Council has 90 days to decide whether to approve or deny the application. And there is a 20-day appeal period on City Council decisions. Applicants who receive special permits from the City Council must go on to negotiate a host community agreement with the Mayor’s Office, be approved for a state license from the Cannabis Control Commission and then return to the Cannabis Licensing and Enforcement ComCANNABIS | SEE PAGE 18 2009 FORD F-150 CREW CAB 4X4, One Owner, Most Power Options, Only 118K Miles, Just Serviced, Trades Welcome!

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, February 7, 2020 Page 5 Valentine Memories By Virginia Ruane I love Valentine’s Day! It brings back so many wonderful memories. One of my favorite memories happened many years ago. I would say it was about 1948. Yes, that’s a long, long time ago. It was an era when not many families had a car. If your father had a car, you were rich or very lucky. We were not rich, but my father did have a car, so I guess we were lucky. It is not like today when there are three or four cars in a driveway: one for Mom, one for Dad and one for each child. In those days, fathers were the only ones who had a license and a car. In my family, not only did my father have a license to drive, but I had gotten my license at age 16 and I did not have a car. He didn’t trust me with his car, so as a result, I never drove my father’s car. One Valentine’s Day, many years ago, my husband-to-be and I were invited to a Valentine’s Day party on the other side of Malden. He also had a license, but no car, nor did his mother or father have a car. So, I got a bright idea. Wouldn’t it be a great if we took my father’s car? I would drive to Frank’s house, and then he would do the driving from there. I took a chance and asked my father. It’s a good thing that my father liked my future husband, because he did say yes. It had to be a day or night that my father was not using the car. Good fortune for us, that on this particular Valentine’s Day, he was not using the car. For our future dating, we made sure the car was available. Welcome Lash Expert Now at MEGA HAIR ELITE In this day and age that would never happen. Even after we got married, it was a year before we could buy a car. I received a $1,000 check from a former employer who owed that money to me. Guess what we did with the money? We purchased our first “new, used car” and we felt like millionaires. We had made it… we were car owners! Life is full of good surprises, and Valentine’s Day was one for me many years ago. Maybe it will be for you, too! It may not be a “new, used car” or, in my case, my father letting me use the car, but I hope that it is something special, just for you. Remember, what happens on this Valentine’s Day will be your future memories. I am a grandmother and I love to be remembered on Valentine’s Day. If you have a grandmother or grandfather, don’t forget them on this special day. They were once young, too, just like you are now and just like I once was, and Valentine’s Day was just as special for them as it was for me. It brings back a memory for them of all their hopes and dreams and lets them know that they are not forgotten. A Happy Valentine’s Day to All! Virginia Ruane is a lifelong Malden resident. Please send comments and suggestions to virginiaruane@aol.com. Join Us For Friday, Feb. 14, 2020 Bring your sweetheart, your friends, and your appetite to Jack’s Ristorante for that extra special day of memories. YOU WILL LOVE JACK’S MENU!

Page 6 THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, February 7, 2020 “Malden: Today, Tomorrow and Yesterday”... It’s a Small World After All! By Peter F. Levine F acebook may have its many flaws but posts like this make it all worthwhile: “It's a Small World After All!” “My name is Rick Thibert and I was Malden High Class of 1990. I tell this story quite often, but never with the family that should have heard it.... so please bear with me. “In 1993 I was part of a US Special Operations Contingency based in San Vito, Italy. We flew daily missions in our Pavelow Helicopters in and out of Bosnia and Croatia during the Balkan War for several years. In our off time we had little to nothing in terms of services available to us. After a year or so they opened a shop on our base to sell basics to us. A little later they even opened a gym and a barber shop. Maybe another year later they opened a gift shop selling us all sorts of tourist type of Italian souvenirs etc. “With this being said, I have painted the picture for my story. Here goes: Upon leaving the gym one morning I decided to pay a visit to the gift shop. I was in shorts and a T-Shirt. The man behind the counter said to me in his strong Italian accent, but in perfect English (sounded much like someone from the Godfather) ‘aren’t you cold dressed like that?’ I said no and chuckled. He said, ‘you must be from a cold state’. I said yeah, kind of! He asked me where and I told him Massachusetts. His face kind of lit up and he said, ‘where about in Massachusetts?’ I said a city just North of Boston, Malden. He said, ‘I know Malden very well!’ At this point I’m thinking, this guy is pulling my leg! He asked me if I attended Malden High School and I said yes! Again, his face lit up again!! He asked me who I had for history lessons! I told him Mr Collozi. He said ‘Peter Collozi???’ with a (expletive deleted) eating grin on his face...... and I said yes with and OMG expression on my face! “He said, ‘I’m Raymond Collozi’, I’m Peter’s brother!!!’ I couldn’t believe it! We talked about Mr. C and how I also went to school with his daughter (a year or two under me, not sure I really knew her). His Niece of course! How magical a moment we both had. “Imagine deploying to a war in a foreign country to meet your history teacher’s brother!!!?? I’d be grateful if someone could share my story with the Collozi family! Rick Thibert 1990” Thank you so much Rick for your service to our country and this story. A few thoughts on a frigid midwinter Malden morning... • Congresswoman Katherine Clark – straight out of Melrose – just killing it during these historic times! • Must see show at the Regent Theater in Arlington: Ted Neeley (of “Jesus Christ Superstar” fame) and Yvonne Elliman! One night only (according to the advert I read) backed up by the Ultrasonic Rock Band. • Congratulations go out to one of the City of Malden's newest employees, the hardest working man in show biz (formerly of the U.S.P.S., so you know what I mean), Jimmy Tucker! • Thank you for the kind words about my column, (the lovely) Susan Shaw. Susan is originally a North End girl but hit the lottery when she met her dashing hubby Ray Mahoney and moved to Malden, some 30 years ago. Okay, I was joking, it was actually Ray who hit the lottery! Don’t ever forget this amazing quote from the Chairman of The Board Frank Sinatra: “Rock ‘n Roll: the most brutal, ugly, desperate, vicious form of expression it has been my misfortune to hear.” Which brings me to my favorite Ted story from long ago and not so far away. “Jesus Christ Superstar” came roaring into town back on Jan. 13, 1996, with original “Jesus,” Ted Neeley, back doing what he was put on earth to do, play the Lord and Savior in the Broadway musical. After the show a group of us went out with Ted to (I believe) an Asian restaurant on Rte. 1 for a plate of beef and onions with black bean sauce with white rice (well, that’s what I had anyway). There were nine of us. We were trying to arrange seating. Ted came up with the most logical suggestion, and I quote: “boy, girl, boy, girl, Jesus, boy, girl, boy girl.” Long Live Ted Neeley! Pop/punk and rock trailblazers “Boy’s Life” were mere children when they burst out of lead singer/guitarist/lyricist John Surette’s garage on Presley Street in the late 1970’s and took the Boston music scene by storm! They had a busy December back in 1980: • 12/4 The Bradford Ballroom with The Neighborhoods & Kid Creole • 12/6 Wellesley College • 12/12 Malden Catholic High School • 12/13 The Rat with Shrapnel & The Proof • 12/16 The Rat with The Out“Boy, girl, Jesus, boy, girl...” left to right: Mark Cherone, Tracy Glynn, Ted Neeley, Gary and Mike Cherone, Peter Levine, Kelley Glynn and Al and Barbara Glynn. (Courtesy Photo) lets, LaPeste & Tennie Komar • 12/19 Cantones with LaPeste (owner Mario Cantone played b-ball with us at the Y back in the day) • 12/20 Cantones with LaPeste • 12/30 The Underground w/ The Upstarts Fast forward two years – May 21,1982 – Boy’s Life are hitting their stride as songwriters, players and performers on a Boston music scene saturated with some of the best talent in the whole country. Boy’s Life realizes a teenage punk rocker dream and opens for the mighty Jam at the Orpheum. One of the best and most knowledgeable critics of the day (still writing in 2020 by the way), Jim Sullivan had this to say about Malden’s best and brightest the next day in the Globe: “Boy’s Life opened with a confident, spunky set. They sometimes paint lines too broadly, but they’ve got a winning, energetic sneer and they’re acquiring more and more depth as players.” “Malden: Today, Tomorrow and Yesterday...” remembers Malden’s forgotten Hollywood movie starlet/glamour girl Betty Lou Keim on the 10th anniversary of her passing, January 27, 2010. Betty Lou played Frank Sinatra’s out-of-control niece in the film “Some Came Running” – retiring in 1960 to raise her four children. Born in Malden in 1938, Betty Lou was living in Chatsworth, Calif., at the time of her death. She married Warren Berlinger in 1959 and retired from show biz to raise a family shortly after the nuptials. For a short while Betty Lou was a major player in Tinsel Town, in my opinion no marginally talented “B” actress! She starred alongside Frank Sinatra, Henry Fonda, James Cagney, Ginger Rogers and Patricia Neal (all Hollywood heavyweights!). She is survived by her children Lisa, David, Edward and Elizabeth. We won’t forget you, Betty Lou! “Malden: Today, Tomorrow and Yesterday...” remembers longtime Edgeworth character and sweet neighborhood kid Jimmy Burggren. “Malden: Today, Tomorrow and Yesterday...” remembers Tony Conserva’s son Jake. Although a Stoneham kid, Jake had serious Malden roots. “Malden: Today, Tomorrow and Yesterday...” remembers James Damiano – longtime of Malden Street, Devir Park and the Italian American Citizens Club and no stranger to a friendly game of chance (more on Jimmy soon). “Malden: Today, Tomorrow and Yesterday...” remembers a “Son of Edgeworth,” Kevin Reardon – Dan and Alison’s beloved boy (more on Kevin soon). “Malden: Today, Tomorrow and Yesterday...” remembers Vietnam War vet Bobby Santilli’s uncle, stone cold Malden guy and a friend of mine–- David Hopkins (U.S. Army 1st Cavalry Division) – more on “Hoppy” soon. “This is the end, beautiful friend, this is the end, my only friend, the end...” On the 8th anniversary of his passing, “Malden: Today, Tomorrow and Yesterday...” takes a moment to keep Dom DiGiammarino in our thoughts and to reflect on the legacy of the DiGiammarino brothers, “Ward Two’s First Family of Football,” as they were referred to. This legendary family grew up in the heart of Ward 2 – Russell Street – and produced five boys that would go on to excel at Malden High School in football, baseball, track and academics. Dom, Frank, Johnny, Larry and Bobby were all outstanding gridiron players with three of the brothers pulling double duty as baseball stars. Larry was named to the Boston Herald All-Scholastic Team in Baseball and Football and went on to play in the backfield for the University of Miami Hurricanes. He also hit a grand slam off future MLB star and future Boston Red Sox pitcher Bill Monbouquette when Monbo played at Medford High. He also hit another grannie off him as a member of the Malden City Club. Monbo was playing for the Everett Redbirds in the Suburban Twi-League at the time. All the brothers went on to become educators and give back gig time to their communities. Dom “Lightning” DiGiammarino excelled at track as well as football at MHS, participated in both World War II (at age 17) and the Korean Conflict, for 20 years ran the “Crystal Driving School” in Wakefield, coached football and baseball at Wakefield High School, was a biology and science teacher at WHS and later became the Department Head of Special Needs students at WHS. Dom and his lovely wife, Doris, were married for 65 years and raised three wonderful children. They just do not make them like the DiGiammarinos any longer.

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, February 7, 2020 ~ OP-ED ~ Page 7 Safe Communities Act promotes public safety, strengthens civil rights By State Senator Jason Lewis E very resident of Massachusetts has a constitutional right to be free and safe. The Massachusetts state constitution, the world’s oldest functioning written constitution, declares that “All people are born free and equal and have certain natural, essential and unalienable rights; among which may be reckoned the right of enjoying and defending their lives and liberties; that of acquiring, possessing and protecting property; in fine, that of seeking and obtaining their safety and happiness.” Jason Lewis State Senator This means that every Massachusetts resident has a right to freedom and safety when dropping their kids off at school, visiting a government building like a courthouse or Town Hall, calling 911 for help in an emergency, or pulling over to ask a local police officer for assistance.

Celebration of Girls & Women in Sports Day Malden, Revere student-athletes named F RANKLIN, Mass. – Elaine “Laney” Clement-Holbrook, girls’ basketball coaching legend, will provide the keynote address at the Massachusetts Celebration of National Girls and Women in Sports Day (GWS Day) on Friday, February 7, at the Great Hall at Faneuil Hall in Boston. This event, which runs from 10:00 a.m. to noon, is a formal but fun recognition day for high school female athletes and the adults who support and inspire them. The event is cosponsored by the Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association (MIAA) and New Agenda - Northeast. This morning’s celebration will recognize two honored female athletes from each participating high school, and nine participating schools have included athletes from their Unified Program. In addition to Clement-Holbrook’s keynote address, the event will feature the recognition of the four 2020 recipients of the Massachusetts Women in Athletics Distinguished Service Award. The Honorees are Lynn Anderson, Field Hockey Coach, Mohawk Trail Regional High School, Shelburne Falls; Eileen Donahue, Field Hockey Coach, Watertown High School, Watertown; Martha Jamieson, Athletic Director, Silver Lake Regional High School, Kingston; and Theresa Nyhan, Teacher and Coach, Mansfield High School, Mansfield.

In 2017 she was chosen for the national honor of Councillors ask for advice on appointments to housing trust board By Barbara Taormina T he Personnel and Appointments Committee voted unanimously this week to recommend three of Mayor Gary Christenson’s nominees for the city’s Affordable Housing Trust Fund Board to the full City Council for approval. There is, however, one small problem. Two of the candidates, Brian Slater and Angie Liou, are not Malden residents. Christenson’s third nominee, Roxanne Reddington-Wilde, is a Baincroft Road resident who specializes in low-income public policy, housing and advocacy for Action for Boston Community Development. Residency is a requirement for appointments to city boards and commissions, but there are some exceptions.

According to the city’s ordinance, residency is not a requirement for board and commission members who have been designated to serve by virtue of their employment with the city. While Slater and Liou are not employed by or with the city, they both work on affordable housing and community issues within the city. Slater, a senior vice president of East Boston Savings Bank, has worked on affordable housing development, including Malden’s Forestdale Park. He also serves as treasurer for Housing Families, a Malden-based regional agency that provides emergency and affordable housing to residents in need. Liou is the executive director of the Asian Community Development Corporation, which works to create and preserve affordable housing and promote home homeownership for members of the Greater Boston RACE | FROM PAGE 8 Initiative (TCI), which calls for a five to 17 cent fee per gallon of gas to fund investments in public transportation and other strategies to address climate change.

Both Slater and Liou would bring extensive experience and knowledge to the city’s Affordable Housing Trust Fund Board, which was established to create and preserve affordable housing units in Malden. The housing trust fund will be supported with money from the city’s Community Preservation Act fund, grants, donations and mitigation fees from private residential developers. The City Council has discussed and debated the issue of residency and city appointments in the past. While councillors have generally supported appointments of the most qualified candidates, in the case of nonresidents they have tended to ask if there are any equally qualified and capable candidates living in Malden. Once the Personnel Committee receives an opinion from the Legal Department, the full City Council will vote on the appointments. rabedian has worked on measures to support Melrose’s arts community and an incremental approach to recreational marijuana businesses. She has said that, as a state rep, she will continue to advocate for small business. Reid feels small businesses should be encouraged by cutting fees.

The Tornadoes girls placed second in their part of the competition, led by Chloe Akombi and Samantha and Abby Tang. these student-athletes certainly deserve a lot of credit for their achievement,” Coach Bisson added. “It was a true team effort.” In the win over Medford, Malden senior Haoxi Wang and Tornadoes sophomore David Lombardi led the way; each finished with two individual victories and both contributing to Blue and Gold wins in both the 200-yard medley relay and the 200-yard freestyle relay.

The boys’ swim team recently secured its 13th consecutive CAC title. (Photo Courtesy of Mystic Valley Regional Charter School) O n January 30 the front-running Mystic Valley Regional Charter School boys consistently outpaced opponents in the 2020 Commonwealth Athletic Conference (CAC) championship meet held at Greater Lowell and Lynn Tech, shedding seconds from previous best times in both individual and relay events on their way to winning their thirteenth straight CAC conference championship. The Eagles began the meet by winning the 200 medley relay with a time of 1:47.70 (Andrew DiFiore, Bryant Nguyen, Aiden Acuna-Rosa, Armando Indresano), achieving a Sectionals – and States – qualifying time. The team of Bryan Li, Daniel Nguyen, Minh Tran and Eric Loue finished in seventh place with a time of 2:16.44. In the second event of the evening, the 200 Freestyle, the Eagles really got rolling with a 1, 3, 5, 6 finish. Jeremy Cheng led the way in 1:55.24 – more than 14 seconds faster than the field. Jeremy’s time was a sectional and state-qualifying swim and his best of the year. Coming in third with a lifetime best was Brandon Zhao; in fifth was Matt Loue, and rounding out the boys finishers was Minh Tran in sixth place. Next came the 200 Yard Individual medley, which was dominated by the Eagles. Joe Cirame and Captain Sam Lyon led the way with a 1-2 finish, both in season-best times. In third place was eighth-grader Jason Yan, with a lifetime best of 2:19.92. Rounding out the Eagles’ finishers was Ramy Elaafer in fifth place with a time of 2:25.76, also a lifetime best. Freshman Armando Indresano recorded his first ever CAC championship in leading the Eagles to first place in the 50 freestyle. Armando’s time of 23.33 is one of the fastest for a freshman in Mystic Valley history and is also a sectional and state-qualifying time. Following close in second place was junior Bryant Nguyen in 23.86. Seventh-grader Adrian Chang had a lifetime best swim in 26.78 in placing ninth. Daniel Nguyen finished the scoring in the 50 in tenth place in a lifetime best of 26.79. In the next event, the 100 butterfly, Mystic Valley’s fabulous freshman boys class continued to show their strength, with Aiden Acuna Rosa finishing in first place with a sectional and state-qualifying time of 58.25. Middle School sensaMVRCS claims 50th T he Mystic Valley Regional Charter School athletic program recently achieved an impressive accomplishment. By virtue of its 13th consecutive Commonwealth Athletic Conference (CAC) swimming title, the school now has 50 overall conference crowns since the inception of the Eagles athletics program in 2007. In total, some 13 sports have captured conference titles (see list below). “This is a true testament to not only all of the accomplishments but to everyone associated with our athletics program – from our student-athletes, coaches and administrators,” said MVRCS Director/Superintendent Alex Dan. “The number of individuals it has taken to achieve this benchmark undoubtedly numbers high into the hundreds and even approaches the thousands. As important as the titles, banners and wins have been, the way our student-athletes have represented Mystic Valley Regional Charter School in competition – incorporating the values and virtues instilled as part of character education – is just as impressive, if not more.” In addition to the 13 swimming titles, the Eagles have extion RJ Tayag, only in seventh grade, placed second in 1:01.27. Continuing to show the young strength of the Eagles, Ramy Elaafer (freshman) and Brandon Zhao (eighth grade) were in fifth and sixth place, both in season best swims. In the 100 freestyle, Andy DiFiore continued the tradition of a DiFiore boy winning this event after his brother, Mystic Alumni Michael DiFiore, had won it the past two years. Andy’s time of 51.74 was a lifetime best and a sectional and state-qualifying time. Right behind Andy was Armando Indresano in 52.13. Matt Loue added a sixth place finish in a lifetime best, and eighth-grader George George finished tenth in a lifetime best. In the 500 freestyle, Aiden Acuna-Rosa and Jason Yan completed yet another Eagles 1-2 finish. Daniel Nguyen finished a strong meet with a seventh place showing while Minh Tran added his second top 10 finish of the meet in ninth place. The Eagles’ 200 freestyle relay team of Joe Cirame, Bryant Nguyen, Cheng and Sam Lyon easily earned first place with a state-qualifying time of 1:36.24. In the 100-yard backstroke, freshman Jeremy Cheng and sophomore Andy DiFiore battled it out to complete the Eagles’ 1-2 finish. Jeremy’s time of 57.96 was a lifetime best and a sectional and state-qualifying time. Adrian Chang completed a phenomenal first CAC meet, adding a fifth place finish, and fellow CAC first-timer Bryan Li added an eighth place finish. The 100 breaststroke, alSWIM | SEE PAGE 14 CAC championship perienced great success on the hardwood, with boys’ and girls’ basketball each hanging four CAC banners, and on the pitch, with girls’ soccer winning five CAC titles and boys’ soccer finishing above the rest on four occasions. Boys’ cross-country, which earlier this fall won its second-straight CAC crown, has won six championships. “Fifty conference championships is an impressive accomplishment,” said MVRCS Athletics Director Jonathan Currier. “Given the short timeline we’ve had as a school and developing athletics, this achievement speaks volumes. It may sound cliché, but all the credit goes to the student-athletes, coaches, support staff and administration. This is a collective achievement and accomplishment and one that shows just how committed MVRCS is to creating and sustaining excellence in the arena of athletics.” MVRCS CAC championships by sport • Baseball – 2017, 2018. • Boys’ Basketball – 2011-2012, 2014-15, 2015-16, 2018-19. • Girls’ Basketball – 2012-13, 2013-14, 2017-18, 2018-19. • Boys’ Cross-Country – 2007, 2008, 2009, 2012, 2018, 2019. • Girls’ Cross-Country – 2013, 2018. • Football – 2015, 2016. • Boys’ Lacrosse – 2014, 2015. • Girls’ Lacrosse – 2017, 2019. • Boys’ Soccer – 2014, 2016, 2017, 2018. • Girls’ Soccer – 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2016. • Swimming – 2007-08, 200809, 2009-10, 2010-11, 201112, 2012-13, 2013-14, 201415, 2015-16, 2016-17, 201718, 2018-19, 2019-20. • Softball – 2016, 2017. • Volleyball – 2017, 2018, 2019.

Compensating for a decades-long omission, the bill assigns the DPU a mission statement. It requires the agency to balance six priorities: reliability of supply, affordability, public safety, physical and cyber security, equity and, significantly, reductions in greenhouse gas emissions. • Jumpstarting efforts to supply low-cost solar electricity to low-income communities. To reverse the failure of state programs to incentivize solar energy projects in low-income neighborhoods, as well as spur job creation, the bill requires the Department of Energy Resources (DOER) to set aside future solar allocations for such neighborhoods. • Letting cities and towns adopt a “net zero” stretch energy code. The bill allows the state to support communities that choose on their own to move away from fossil fuels as the source of heating for new buildings.

The bill directs the Secretary of Energy and Environmental Affairs (EEA) to set emissions reduction goals, in advance, for each threeyear plan the utilities formulate for Mass Save. It requires the DPU, at the conclusion of each threeyear plan, to certify how much the plan actually contributed to meeting the Commonwealth’s greenhouse gas emission limits. • Tightening the alignment between Mass Save and emissions limits. The bill requires electric utilities to include an explicit value for emissions reductions whenever they calculate the cost-effectiveness of a Mass Save offering. • Setting a deadline for converting MTBA buses to all-electric power. An Act to accelerate the transition of cars, trucks and buses to carbon-free power directs the MBTA to limit bus purchases and leases to zero-emissions vehicles beginning in 2030, and to aim for an all-zero-emissions fleet by 2040, to reduce transportation-related emissions in city neighborhoods. • Offsetting the Trump Administration’s efforts to slow progress on efficient appliances.

The bills now go to the House of Representatives for consideration. The Sonics keep rolling as they got the top spot for the first time this season (well, a tie) but the mental advantage, you could say. Jose Davila averaged 8.5 per quarter as well as scoring the weekend high of 34. Darius Philippe dropped 18 and J. Dorcena added 14 more for the Win. The Lakers were only down 1 after 1 but struggled in quarter #2, and that’s when their opponent pulled away.

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, February 7, 2020 Page 13 SCHOOL | FROM PAGE 1 Close to home, Supt. Oteri said, there have been cases of the flu among students reported in some of the schools. An immediate response has been an additional deep cleaning of those schools as a deterrent to a spread of the flu virus, with other procedures planned as well. He said that on a daily basis all the schools are cleaned well, with special attention and detail on cleaning touchpoints in buildings in classrooms and hallways. Information on fighting the spread of the flu virus has been made available to families of students. “We advise all families to keep their students out of school if they are ill, and we ask staff to do the same,” Supt. Oteri said. “We also advise them to reinforce the general, basic practices we are told to follow by the CDC and our local agencies, like frequent handwashing and covering mouths and nose when coughing or sneezing.” Supt. Oteri said that he is confident the Malden Public Schools district is prepared to respond to an outbreak of the flu or other illness. “We are optimistic we have planned well to keep us healthy and safe,” he told the School Committee. Malden Reads celebrates 10th season by distributing copies of “Fahrenheit 451” Representatives of Malden Reads, an active community reading program with a decade of citywide programming now under its belt, appeared at Monday’s School Committee meeting to help kick off its 2020 campaign by distributing complementary copies of this year’s book selection to members of the School Committee. This year’s pick is a futuristic classic by renowned science fiction icon Ray Bradbury, “Fahrenheit 451,” which was first published in 1953. Malden Reads co-facilitators Anne D’Urso Rose and Jodie Zalk thanked the School Committee for its continuing support and lauded the strong partnership the group has had for the past 10 years, since its For Advertising with Results, call The Advocate Newspapers at 617-387-2200 or Info@advocatenews.net inception, with the Malden Public Schools. Zalk said that since Malden Reads launched 10 years ago, the group has held 49 book discussions, hosted 41 family and children events and introduced 52 other book titles in addition to its 10 main selections. Malden Reads is especially proud that no less than 14 authors have come to Malden to discuss their books, Zalk added. Superintendent of Schools John Oteri praised the work of Malden Reads, thanking them for including Malden Public Schools so prominently in their mission. “We have found many common goals between Malden Reads and the Malden Public Schools,” Supt. Oteri said, “particularly in increasing and improving literacy in our community.” “Malden Reads has helped build a commonality between generations and cultures in our community,” Supt. Oteri added. “We thank you for your fostering or literacy.” Malden Mayor Gary Christenson, who also serves as Malden School Committee Chairperson, also had good words for Malden Reads. “Whenever people ask me about what has been successful in Malden, and what represents our community best, I always mention Malden Reads,” Mayor Christenson said. “Malden Reads has been demonstrating for many years what we’re all trying to do in this community: share, learn and grow,” he added. ~ Home of the Week ~ REVERE 1st OPEN HOUSE SAT. & SUN. 11:00-12:30 NEW livingrm. open to beautiful kitch. w/ QUALITY BUILT & DESIGNED Twnhse. features 2 bdrms., 2 1/2 baths, spac. stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, cntr. island w/seating, dinning area w/slider to 20’ trex deck w/ divider for privacy, great open concept, master bdrm. w/ private bath offering oversized shower w/custom glass doors, hrdwd. flrs. throughout, cent. air, 1 car gar. w/ pavers drvway, bonus, unfinished rm. behind gar. leading to a walk out pavers patio, pro. landscaped, located in desirable W.

First, the bill bars law enforcement and court personnel from asking people about their immigration status unless required by law. The Massachusetts State Police already employs a similar policy. Many immigrants fear that calling 911 or speaking to the police may lead to separation from family members – especially children – making them CANNABIS | FROM PAGE 3 mission for a local license. The strict timeline is meant to keep the licensing process moving forward in what the Cannabis Licensing Commission anmore vulnerable to domestic abuse, wage theft and other crimes. When crimes like that go unchecked, it hurts the entire community. Second, the Safe Communities Act protects due process rights of detained immigrants by requiring Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers to obtain their consent using a form that explains their right to decline an interview or have their own attorney present. Without these protections, people often make statements ticipated would be a shifting landscape where special permits and licenses may be denied, negotiations and agreements could fall through and applicants could pull out at any point in the process. Malden has or sign documents jeopardizing their immigration cases. Everyone deserves legal representation and the opportunity to defend themselves in court. Finally, the bill ends contracts with ICE that allow state and county law enforcement personnel to act as federal immigration agents at state taxpayers’ expense. Massachusetts is the only state in New England to have such agreements, which redirect already-scarce police resources to do the job of federal officials, instead of communifive available retail cannabis licenses, and when one proposal fails, an opportunity opens up for a new applicant.

The Massachusetts Chiefs of Police Association supports the Safe Communities Act because police chiefs understand that it will help our local law enforcement officers to do their jobs and make our communities safer for all. Unfortunately, some opponents of the bill falsely claim that it will prevent immigrants from being arrested for committing a crime; in fact, any person who commits a crime – including any documented or ing something new, and members are continually evaluating the local regulations and the review and licensing process. Commission members plan to meet with city councillors after their special permit hearundocumented immigrant – would continue to be held fully responsible under state and federal law.
