By Steve Freker B lack History Month has transcended from a novel proclamation by a forward-thinking U.S. President in the 1970s, to an integral focal point in our nation in the month of February each year since. It has roots stretching as far back to the 1920s, but as Black History Month approaches its offi cial 50th anniversary in 2026, more and more Americans are savoring this time of year as a way of embracing and celebrating the culture and contributions of Black Americans through time. First offi cially proclaimed nationally by U.S. President Gerald Ford in 1976, educational institutions have long championed Black History Month and have included its teachings not only limited to one month in February, but throughout the entire school year. The Malden Public Schools (MPS) have long embraced Black History Month and this year progressed even further.At the Feb. 1 regular monthly Malden School Committee meeting, Superintendent John Oteri announced that the MPS district has created a new, stand-alone highly interactive website that has a wide variety of resources, materials and information for all grade levels, from Pre-K through Grade 12. He also noted that in advance of both Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day in January and in the latter part of January, before the start of this month, the district had sent messaging to educators about resources, lesson and activity suggestions addressing Dr. King's legacy and Black History Month during regular class time. "We do this work mindful that moments that highlight the contributions of Black Americans should not be relegated to one month," Supt. Oteri said. "Instead, February reminds us of the vital and ongoing work to ensure our black students see themselves in our curriculum and provides us an opportunity for all students to learn about Black History and the major contributions of Black Americans to our society."

Oteri encourages everyone in the Malden Public Schools community and the Malden community at large to take advantage of, can be found on the district website at: www. maldenps.org.

Page 4 THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, February 12, 2021 Malden Today, Tomorrow and Yesterday... Hyman and Sarah Gould By Peter F. Levine S ome while back, I posted a photo of Richard Nixon visiting Malden in 1956 as Vice President. A bandstand was set up near the Granada Theatre opposite The Palace of Sweets on Pleasant Street. The vice president was enthusiastically welcomed by a throng of Maldonians, many of them in attendance to cheer on local pols sitting in the V.I.P. section erected for the occasion. Seated on the dais with Nixon that long-ago day was future Mass. Governor Leverett Saltonstall, Secretary of State Christian A. Herter, Republican City Committee Chairman Edward J. Bushell, Michael DeMarco and Melrose Mayor Lawrence Lloyd. With that said, I received an interesting email from a former Maldonian, Dave Perley. A dentist living in Los Angeles but through the miracle of the world wide web has been able to connect with his roots once again. He saw this old black and white and it brought back a flood of memories. I'll let Dave take it from here: "My great grandparents owned the Gould Building in the photo. The Palace of Sweets and the Quality Restaurant were in the Gould Building. Unfortunately, they died in the Spanish Influenza pandemic. They left four orphans. The rents from the sale of the building helped support the orphaned children. I really liked the photo of the Gould Building with Nixon. Hyman and Sarah Gould were my great grandparents. Chaim Gel changed his name to Hyman Gould after he came to America. His family were butchers from Krekenava, Lithuania (Russian occupied). He became a plumber along with his other brothers, Samuel, and Max. His mother, Freda, and his sisters, Fannie, Annie and Goldie also came to America. Hyman married Sarah Sandler. Sarah was born either in Krekenava or Dotnuva. Her father was Jacob Sandler, one of the founders of the Sandler Shoe Department store in Lawrence. I have been researching my family tree for the last eight years and I was the one who figured out the Gould name was originally Gel. I figured out who came to America and traced them to Lithuania. Hyman and Sarah had four children, Vivian, Ruth, Dexter, and Gloria. Vivian was my grandmother. Hyman died on Sept. 29, 1918 and Sarah died on Feb. 3, 1920. The orphans were sepCORPORATE & BUSINESS TAX PREPARATION RESPONSIVE CPA ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS * Financial Statement: Audit & Reviews * Payroll & Bookkeeping Services Call (617) 240-2905 / Email: Steven.divirgilio@cpa.com Website: WWW.STEVEDCPA.COM Malden Square in 1956 with the Gould Building in the background. (Courtesy Photo) arated and lived with different family members. They were reunited later and lived with a second cousin, Samuel Gill, and his wife Fannie. Samuel and Fannie had no children of their own, so they took in the orphans. I found the 1930 census with Samuel listed as a cousin to Dexter, Ruth, and Gloria. Vivian had already moved out. That cousin relationship led me to figuring out that the Gould name was originally Gel. Samuel Gill's original surname was Gel. My cousin, Nancy Sandman gave me Hyman and Sarah Gould's contract to buy the Gould Building on Dec. 13, 1917. I used maps and directories to pinpoint the location. Nancy Sandman wrote, "My favorite part of going with my Dad to collect rents was a stop at Palace of Sweets where the owner of the store offered me whatever I wanted!" Nancy Sandman's daughter, Joanna is a lawyer and works at the Dowling Building. Joanna would look out her office window never realizing that her great grandparents once owned a building across the street. The Gould Building does not exist anymore but in its place is a rather ugly one-story building, not magnificent like it once was" (my note: I totally agree with you Dave!). This I did not know until Molly Silvia Nickerson at Nickerson contacted me a little while back. Callahan Construction Managers in collaboration with The Gavin Foundation and Malden Overcoming Addiction were vital in the renovation of the Bridge Recovery Center on Commercial St in Malden. Callahan reconstructed the existing property’s second floor by adding an industrial kitchen, two restrooms, a reception area, and a recreation room. The good folks Callahan also aided with installing flooring and painting the space. Imagine that!? A construction company with a heart. Their contribution was immeasurable. Callahan is a full-service construction management company serving the New England area as a family owned and operated business for more than 65 years. They were voted a “Best Place to Work” in 2018 by the Boston Globe so they gotta be doing something right! I’ve been told that Callahan’s involvement at the property stemmed from their work alongside the City of Malden in the planning and execution of J Malden Center, which as most know at this point is a transit-oriented, mixed-use development that really did revitalize the Square. Especially that area which was totally lost to Malden because “The Beast That Ate Pleasant Street” sat there and ate up prime real estate. Thank you, Steve Freker, for the nickname. When the project was completed Mayor Gary Christenson and city officials approached Callahan about the renovation of the Bridge Recovery Center. Callahan was able to donate time and resources toward getting the center open. For the “not in my backyard crowd” out there The Bridge Recovery Center offers a variety of services through community partnerships, including the employment of Cambridge Health Alliance’s outpatient clinical services, ABCD food services, housing assistance and job training, Narcan training by Cataldo Ambulance, computer classes provided by Business Solutions Unplugged, media workshops held by 3MG Boston, access to physical activity at the local Y, and Seven Mile Road Church for spiritual well-being. Nothing more, nothing less. Thank you, Callahan Construction, for giving back to the community and for caring. Thank you, Bridge Recovery Center, for being there for Malden. I was gobsmacked once again just last week. Not to be confused with the sludge rock band Godsmack who I just did not care for very much. Please do not take offense Sully. So, Super of Cems "Gentleman" Jim Cahil walks into the Parking Dept., no doubt to discuss something urgent and for the betterment of all Maldonians with Parking Director Ron Hogan. The door is closed so I know the subject matter is on a need to know basis only. Jimmy finally emerges. In his hand is a baggy full of round doughy orbs. He tells us that his wife, "The Fabulous One" Judy (sister to Amerige Park hoop legends Franny and Joe Repucci by the way), makes these pizza roll delicacies with her very own hands. These particular ones are pepperoni pizza rolls. He says try one. Twist my arm Jimmy. We place a couple in the microwave. Thirty seconds later I am eating the most delicious, the tastiest, the most delectable pepperoni pizza rolls I have ever had! No fake news! Jimmy has spoken of his wife, The Fabulous One, so often over the many years that I feel I know her like the back of my gnarly old hand. "Loving, caring, attentive, the best cook, the best mother, the best wife, the best this and the best that" are common superlatives thrown around by Jimmy.

Local doctors weigh in on top COVID-19 variant By Christopher Roberson D espite the downward trend in COVID-19 cases, the variant strain, known as B117, continues to gain momentum. Although other variants exist, Dr. Lou Ann Bruno-Murtha, the division chief of infectious diseases at Cambridge Health Alliance, said B117 has been the most prevalent variant thus far. Yet, she remained confident in the vaccines that were developed by Moderna and Pfizer at the end of last year. "Fortunately, the three variants that have received recent attention appear to remain susceptible to antibodies produced in response to the two authorized vaccines currently in use,” she said. “Although the mRNA vaccines may be mildly less effective against this variant, most vaccine experts do not believe this subtlety will be clinically relevant.” However, Bruno-Murtha said the situation could easily spiral out of control just as it did when the original COVID-19 virus surfaced nearly one year ago. “More variation will occur as the virus continues to widely circulate,” she said. “If infections can be reduced and quickly controlled, there will be less of an opportunity for the viruses to mutant and gain selective advantages. Given some evidence that these variants are more transmissible, ongoing efforts to maximize personal safety remain essential.” Dr. Benjamin Linas, an infectious disease specialist at Boston Medical Center, said B117 is simply the product of “natural mutation.” “It is 100 percent normal and expected for viruses to mutate,” he said, adding that errors are inevitable at some point during the replication process, thus spawning a new variant. “There are a lot of viruses in an infected person’s body and even a tiny percentage of successful mutations will result in new variants emerging. This is an evolutionary survival of the fittest situation” Linas also said the spike protein found in B117 is much more potent than the spike protein in the original COVID-19 virus. “This is what makes the virus more infectious -- it is better at getting into host cells,” he said. In addition, Linas agreed with Bruno-Murtha regarding the efficacy of the vaccines. “The good news is that the same things we do to prevent COVID will also work against B117,” he said. “The vaccines we have now are effective against B117.” COVID-19 | SEE PAGE 11 Representative Ultrino continues virtual office hours in February S tate Representative Steven Ultrino has announced that he will continue to hold virtual office hours into the month of January over video conferencing platform Zoom.

It was a lifelong journey to get inside his “mind and spirit” to fi nd the source of these two great mysteries: “is there life after death?” and “what is my purpose here in this life? “ I found Sean’s explanation of Cat Steven’s deeply inspirational song “On the Road to Find Out” moving and touching to be shared: “the song hints that there is a decision to be made or not to be made by each person whether to examine life or not. I decided to learn about myself, my mind, and the world around me as much as possible. One of the lines in this song, “Pick up the good book now” made me decide to read as many books on religion and philosophy that I could.

Mastrangelo also said the MHS community is fl attered that the 2021 Malden Reads celebration rated so highly the 2020 MHS Door Decorating Contest (with Black History Month themes), that it has adopted the contest and put it out as a citywide contest to accompany its book selection, "Born a Crime". "We have been generating a By Steve Freker M ake way for the Rams and the Bulldogs! The Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association's (MIAA) Board of Directors voted unanimously, 24-0, at their regular meeting on Thursday to allow Lynn Classical High School and Lynn English High School to immediately join the Greater Boston League (GBL) as full participants for the Fall 2021 season. The MIAA Board voted to waive a standing rule where schools usually had to wait two years before leaving one league and joining new one. The Lynn Classical Rams and Lynn English Bulldogs had been charter members of the Northeastern Conference (NEC), over 40 years, before both decided to break away from the NEC at the end of 2020 in December. The GBL board voted unanimously in December to accept the two Lynn schools and the NEC soon followed suit and voted to allow the pair of schools out of their league agreement with no waiting period. The MIAA vote on Thursday sealed the deal officially and the two Lynn schools are now GBLers. The GBL now has no doubled in size in just four years, from four schools in 2017 to eight schools today: Chelsea, Everett, Lynn Classical, Lynn English, Malden, Medford, Revere and Somerville. "It is great news for those two schools and also for the Greater Boston League," said Malden High School sixthyear Director of Health, Physical Education and Athletics Charlie Conefrey, who is also a sitting member of the MIAA Board of Directors, casting his vote alongside his colleagues Thursday. "We as a league were thrilled when we heard last year as early as the fall, that Lynn Classical and Lynn English were interested in becoming GBL members." With the addition of the Lynn schools, the GBL becomes that much stronger and one of the best conferences in the state, according to GBL President Chris Mastrangelo, who is principal of Malden High School. "We were already a strong league. With the addition of Lynn Classical and Lynn English, we are now the premier urban high school athletic league in Massachusetts," Mastrangelo said Thursday. "It will be an exciting future for our league in the coming years." "There is just a lot of common ground between all our urban-based schools, with demographics, geographic proximity and the competition levels," Conefrey said. "Of course there are some schools which are stronger in particular sports, but overall, it will be a very balanced league. All of the GBL schools, including our newest members, understand and look forward to that." The entry of Lynn English marks the entry of the twotime defending state boys basketball champion. English also has a strong track and baseball program. Lynn Classical has been a consistent participant in the football playoff s and also is highly competitive in boys and girls basketball, soccer and baseball. lot of interest in our Black History Month series and a lot of students and their families are taking advantage of what is being off ered," Mastrangelo said.Access to the daily series, which will resume on Monday, Feb 22, after the week-long February Vacation school break, can also be found by using the MPS Black History Month link, at: www.maldenps.org. Supt. Oteri noted Black History Month is particularly topical this year, following 2020, which featured a continual wave of regional and national unrest regarding issues of racial and social equity. "This year, given recent events in our country, and recognizing that Dr. King's teachings are more relevant and important than ever, all of the directors in our district feel that it is important to collaborate on this message," Supt. Oteri said."We believe that the work begun by Dr. King so many years ago continues to inform our mission today. His wisdom, humility, and love for all stand in stark contrast to images our students are confronted with in the daily news." 81 Main St., Everett, Available March 1, 2021 Commercial Property For Rent 600 Sq.

Webb outlined Malden's "real-time" status and also announced plans for two local vaccination clinics for residents 75 years and older in the state's Phase 2 queue. Another key announcement was the Board of Health kickoff of a dedicated, Malden-based COVID-19 vaccination information call-in service, where residents can call by telephone to make vaccination appointments and ask any questions COVID-19 guidelines, diff erent learning models, the MVRCS reopening plan and its execution as well as general conversation regarding the school’s day-today operations. As of the start of February, more than 70 percent of MVRCS families had elected to enroll in the fi ve-day or hybrid instructional models.

Residents may call 781-6618500 between the hours of 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Monday through Friday and they will get a "live" person to talk to and can either make a COVID-19 vaccination appointment and/or have their questions answered. If they call over the weekend and leave a message, there's a good chance someone will get back to them quickly as well. In addition, the Governor's offi ce and the Department of Public Health have developed a vaccine distribution timeline refl ecting what they have determined to be several priorities: protecting our most vulnerable, maintaining health care system capacity, and addressing inequities in health care access and COVID-19 burden.

"People have to make sure that they are eligible to be vaccinated under the state Phasedin guidelines," Webb said. "If people make a vaccination appointment and go to the site and they are determined not eligible, they will not be vaccinated." He also said that it is actually illegal to make an appointment if not offi cially eligible, since providing false information on government documents is perjury. Webb said there are now two local vaccination clinics planned in this city next week to be administered by the Malden Health Department, with approximately 1,600 doses available to be administered between the two clinics, with 450 appointments already booked as of Tuesday night. The vaccinations will be held Page 9 The Questbridge National Match scholarship also covers transportation costs incurred by the student back-and-forth from their homes. With three of the colleges and universities surpassing $73,000 in annual tuitions, room and board, plus fees, the total value of the Malden High student scholarships is close to $1.2 million. The Posse Foundation has been awarding scholarships to Malden High students for a number of years. This is the fi rst Questbridge scholarship winner from Malden High school offi - cials could recall in recent years. All of the scholarships are awarded based on selections made after an extensive application and recommendation process, followed by interviews of the fi nalists for the scholarship awards. Malden Superintendent of Schools John Oteri and Malden High School principal Chris Mastrangelo each had high praise for the scholarship recipients. at the Salemwood K-8 School Fieldhouse, located at 529 Salem St., Malden. Appointments are between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday, February 17 and Saturday, February 20. Sometimes slots will already have been filled by the time people call for the fi rst time later this week. Webb stressed that these clinics are primarily for Malden residents aged 75 and older who are now eligible under the Phase 2 guidelines. Others in the Phase 2 group have been pushed back in the line under direction of Governor Baker's offi ce, while others have been moved up.After the 75-older category, residents aged 65-older will be eligible for vaccination. Originally, teachers, administrators, staff and others in the fi eld of education were on the same level of eligibility as those "These high-achieving seniors bring great pride and honor to the Malden Public Schools and our community," Supt. Oteri told the members of Malden School Committee when he relayed the news at a recent meeting. "These are the types of students we are producing and it is great to see them achieve this success." "It is fi tting these students are rewarded for the many years of hard work and dedication they have put into their academics and extracurricular activities, including their time here at Malden High School," Mastrangelo said. "They are a credit to our school, the community and especially their families." Mastrangelo said it has been a challenging year for everyone, including Malden High students, which makes it even more inspiring when seniors can attain their goals so well. "It really brightens up our school community when our students represent us so well in a national spotlight in this way." 75-older, but they are now bumped down for eligibility in line after the 65-older category. There had been Malden vaccination clinics scheduled for local educators when the initial Phased plans were introduced in the fi rst week of February, but they were cancelled when the new "pecking order" moving the 75-older and 65-older age groups ahead in the list was announced. Councillor-at-Large Craig Spadafora asked directly when essential workers such as teachers would indeed be vaccinated. "Hopefully, it is as soon as possible. Teachers and other essential workers have to be prioritized," Councilor Spadafora said. Webb said it was hoped that this could happen in March, though stressing it was not easy to specuVACCINE | SEE PAGE 15                                        

Page 10 THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, February 12, 2021 METEOR| FROM PAGE 1 (Editor’s Note: Following is Part 1 of a 2-part series on one of Malden's most renowned athletes, Louise May Stokes Fraser. This story appeared exclusively in the Malden Advocate in May 2020 and is reprinted today as part of our Black History Month coverage.) By Steve Freker W hen she was a young girl, former U.S. Olympian Louise Mae Stokes Fraser would race against boys in her Malden neighborhood on the B&M Railroad tracks just outside of Malden Square. She beat most of them. In a fitting bit of touching irony, part of that historic landmark, now known as the Northern Strand Trail, a popular walking cycling and running path, has been named in her honor. Malden always beams with pride and excitement as a community when one of its own is recognized on a national level for excellence and achievement. It is not a common occurrence, but when it does happen, the Malden community cherishes those moments. One Malden native stands alone in local lore, however, as she attained heights of achievement that have never been matched by a Malden resident. Louise May Stokes Fraser was not only a national success story in the early to mid-1930s, but also drew international acclaim in the arena of track and field. Malden Mayor Gary Christenson honored her memory once again in early May of 2020, when he announced the city was dedicating, in her name, a running, walking and cycling Loop connecting trails that encircle the Malden River. The Loop was also dedicated in the name of the late Malden Court Clerk-Magistrate Joseph Croken, a longtime biking enthusiast before his sudden passBREAKING THE BARRIER: Malden's Louise May Stokes, left and Illinois' Tidye Pinkett, right, were the first two African-American women to ever be selected to the U.S. Olympic Team, for the 1932 Games in Los Angeles, Calif.(Courtesy Photo) ing in 2007. Stokes Fraser burst onto the international stage at the age of just 18, when she tied a world record in the standing broad jump event as a member of a women's track and field club in December, 1931, just a few months after her senior year at Malden High School. First-ever Malden resident & first Black women selected for U.S. Olympics is 1932 Just a few months after that, she brought further international claim to her hometown when she became the first (and only) Malden resident, man or woman, ever to be named to a U.S. Olympic Team, when she was selected as a sprinter for the 1932 Olympic Games, which that year were being hosted on Los Angeles, Calif. Stokes Fraser also made history as she and teammate Tidye Pickett, an exceptional athlete from Chicago, Ill. were the first two Black women to be selected as U.S. Olympians that year. Sadly, neither Stokes Fraser nor Pickett were able to compete and represent their country in the 1932 Olympic Games, replaced at the last minute in the 4 X 100 relay event. Since the two women had appeared to have earned the right to a spot on that relay team due to their performances at pre-Olympics time trials and the fact their 11th hour replacements were white women, race has been cited by a number of historians as being a factor in their being denied a spot to compete in any official Olympics events in 1932. Both women again were picked to compete in the 1936 Olympics, this time the historic Games being held in Berlin, the heart of Nazi Germany. These games were forevermore known as the "Jesse Owens" Olympics, due to Owens, an African-American on the men's team, winning four Gold Medals. Once again, Stokes Fraser did not get an opportunity to compete, left off the relay team once again. Pickett did go on to achieve notoriety as the first African-American woman in history to compete for the U.S. Olympic Team, though an injury ended her quest for a medal in the semifinals of the 100 meter sprint. Though, by the numbers, Stokes Fraser did not excel in the pre-competition times as she had four years earlier in the, again it appeared she had earned a spot in the 4 X 100 relay with the better performances. But again, some sports historians claim racism was ultimately a factor in her being denied a ~ OP-ED ~ (This letter was submitted for publication by Councillor Debra DeMaria as an OP-ED) February 4, 2021 The Honorable Jason Lewis Massachusetts State House, Boston, MA02133 Dear Senator, I wish you and your family good health as you continue to help lead our state through this unconscionable pandemic of Covid-19.You have ferociously been a beacon of hope.While I am a leader in my community, I speak to you as a concerned resident of Massachusetts.I can only imagine the responsibility you hold and I thank you. Today I write to you to advocate for school-aged children in our state.As you are aware, some communities have hybrid learning while some have remote learning.While I can understand these decisions fall on local municipalities, it is all a bit confusing.If we could wrap our arms around the vaccination of educators, just think how much quicker our children would be back in school.While not normality, it would certainly and tremendously help! We have three grandchildren; ages 9/7/4 struggling to learn, eager to learn; and sadly falling backward with their education. Without their classroom settings and their educators, how can an equitable education even be possible?How long will they last before this affects them mentally, socially and physically?I believe it is just a matter of time before we are overwhelmed with these affects.Early Education/ Day Care and K-12 are scheduled for vaccinations Phase 2, Group 3 as of today, February 4, 2021.Depending on supply, this realistically could be late March or even longer.This thought is frightening. Our children have but one chance to be educated; one chance to absorb all the knowledge they can through the experience and professionalism of our statewide educators.It continues to be confusing to me that they have NOT been better prioritized. Our children are the foundation of our future. So where do we go from here?I suppose there will always be another group advocating for their workforce, their age, or even themselves selfishly.My “ask” today is that you, together with the Massachusetts delegation urge the Governor to reach higher and harder for the vaccinations to come to Massachusetts.Get our educators vaccinated and set a tight target date for this completion! Again, this isn’t about the teachers or their unions…it is about our children who are the future of our state and our country.Can’t we all do better?Thank you Senator.

Louise Mae Stokes Fraser grew up in Malden and excelled in all athletics in her formative years, despite the fact women's participation in sports competition was extremely limited both by opportunity and public opinion. Added to the limitations was the fact that in many parts of the United States, segregation according to race was prevalent and in effect in many ways and on a number levels. A flat-out paucity of available opportunities for would-be women athletes in both team and individual sports was indeed one major barrier. Add to that the belief in many circles that athletic competition was innately wrong, physically and mentally, for women to participate. From the late 19th century right up until the 1940s, prominent scientific minds spoke against women competing in athletics, citing adverse effects anywhere from the child-bearing process to mental instability, Who was Louise Mae Stokes Fraser? Louise May Stokes grew up near Malden's downtown and developed a love of running and sports in general at a young age. According to her son, Wilfred Fraser Jr., she beat any girls in town easily, so she began racing neighborhood boys on the B&M Railroad tracks which ran along the city behind Malden Square, now the site of the Northern Strand Trail Bike Path. She went on to become a student at the then brand-new Beebe Junior High School on Pleasant Street in the late 1920s, before moving on to Malden High School. It was there that Louise Mae began to excel athletically.She starred on the fledgling Beebe girls basketball team, which was a very rudimentary, 6-on-6 game, with only one dribble allowed per player at a time and only three players allowed over half court of the small court surface at a time. The girls basketball rules remained essentially the same for 50 years, into the 1970s. She caught the eye of a local track enthusiast and organizer, William H. Quaine, who ran the Onterora Club, a private track and field club in the area. Quaine quickly took an interest in Stokes Fraser and began to guide her career, entering her in races and events around the region. This coincided with her athletic participation at Malden High School, where she was a member of the Class of 1931 who competed in basketball and girls track and field. She established MHS school records in nearly every event offered and balanced her time by singing in the choir at Eastern Avenue Baptist Church. 'The Malden Meteor' sets a World Recordin 1931 In the spring of her senior year, at Quaine's urging, she entered the Boston-based Women's Track Championships, held in the Fens, near Fenway Park and adjacent to where Northeastern University is now located. Stokes Fraser wowed the large crowd in attendance by winning four events and setting a New England record in the 100 meter sprint with a time of 12.9 seconds. Most remarkably, she also tied the World Record in the standing broad jump, with a mark of 8 feet-5 3/4 inches. She was awarded the James Michael Curley Mayor's Cup as the event's Most Outstanding Performer. Furthermore, as news of her world record began to spread, almost immediately, national attention began to come Stokes Fraser's way. A bright future appeared to be looming for the young teen girl who many had started to call "The Malden Meteor". (Part 2 of a 2-part series on Louise Mae Stokes Fraser, "The Malden Meteor," will appear in next Friday's Malden Advocate)

COVID-19 | FROM PAGE 6 Dr. Mark Siedner, an infectious disease specialist at Massachusetts General Hospital, said B117 is estimated to be 50 to 60 percent more contagious than the original strain of COVID-19. “This virus is becoming increasingly predominant,” he said. However, Siedner said safeguards are now in place to prevent a shutdown similar to what happened last spring. “The protective measures that keep us safe don’t change, social responsibility doesn’t change,” he said. “I don’t foresee us going back in time; we should not be where we were a year ago.” However, Dr. Richard Ellison, an infectious disease specialist at UMass Memorial Medical Center, was not as optimistic about the vaccines’ to ability to guard against B117. “We don't have any good evidence at all,” he said. “It’s definitely very worrisome.” Ellison also called attention to the havoc that B117 has already caused in the United Kingdom. “What we saw in England could realistically happen here,” he said.

There were no roll call votes in the House or Senate last week. This week, Beacon Hill Roll Call reports local senators’ roll call attendance records for the entire 2020 session. The Senate held 330 roll calls in 2020. Beacon Hill Roll Call tabulates the number of roll calls on which each senator was present and voting and then calculates that number as a percentage of the total roll call votes held. That percentage is the number referred to as the roll call attendance record. In the Senate, 84.6 percent (33 senators) have 100 percent roll call attendance records. Only six senators have missed any roll calls. Beacon Hill Roll Call contacted these senators who missed roll calls and asked them for a statement. More senators have 100 percent roll call attendance records than in recent memory. This can be attributed to the fact that most senators were not at the Statehouse and participated in these Senate sessions remotely from their homes because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The number of senators who had 100 percent roll call attendance records in the prior four years was 28 in 2019; 20 in 2018; 24 in 2017; and 17 in 2016. The senator who missed the most roll calls is Sen. Nick Collins (D-Boston) who missed 12 roll calls (96.3 percent attendance record). “My wife and I were overjoyed to welcome our second daughter into the world last June,” said Collins. “As a result, I was unable to cast votes in person for several days. Eleven of the 12 votes I missed were while I was on paternity leave. It was incredibly important to be with my wife and daughters in those precious moments. The final missed roll call was for a land conveyance in the town of Dunstable, taken at 4 a.m. at the very end of the session as I was caring for my newborn.” Sens. Pat Jehlen (D-Somerville) and Mike Rush (D-West Roxbury) each missed five roll calls (98.4 percent attendance record). “On January 16, [2020] I was home with the flu,” responded Jehlen. “There were five roll calls that I missed [that day]. It’s the only session I missed.” “I was out of state on official orders, training with the U.S. Navy from January 10, 2020 to January 19, 2020,” wrote Rush. Former Sen. James Welch missed two roll calls. He could not be reached for comment. Sens. Michael Rodrigues (D-Westport) and Barry Finegold (D-Andover) each missed one roll call. “I was in session participating in the debate on the climate change bill and I don’t remember missing a roll call,” responded Rodrigues. Finegold did not respond to repeated requests by Beacon Hill Roll Call for a comment. 2020 FINAL SENATE ROLL CALL ATTENDANCE RECORD The percentage listed next to the senator’s name is the percentage of roll call votes for which the senator was present and voting. The number in parentheses represents the number of roll calls that he or she missed. Sen. Jason Lewis 100 percent (0) 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 brief length of sessions are misguided and lead to irresponsible latenight 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 February 1-5, the House met for a total of six minutes while the Senate met for a total of eleven minutes. Mon.

Page 14 THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, February 12, 2021 avvya yavvy en oniorior avvy S ior io iori by Jim Miller How to Choose a Medical Alert System Dear Savvy Senior, I am interested in getting my mom, who lives alone, a medical alert system with a wearable pendant button that will let her call for help if she falls or has a medical emergency. What can you tell me to help me choose one? Too Many Choices Dear Too Many, A good medical alert system is an eff ective and aff ordable tool that can help keep your mom safe and living in her own home longer. But with all the diff erent products and features available today, choosing one can be challenging. Here are some tips that can help. Three Key Questions Medical alert systems, which have been around since the 1980s, provide a wearable help button – usually in the form of a neck pendant or wristband – that would put your mom in touch with a dispatcher who could summon emergency help or contact a friend or family member as needed. To help you narrow down your options and choose a system that best fi ts your mom’s needs, here are three key questions you’ll need to ask, along with some top-rated companies that off er these products. Does your mom want a home-based or mobile system? Medical alert systems were originally designed to work inside the home with a landline telephone, which is still an option. But since fewer and fewer households have landlines these days, most companies today also off er home-based systems that work over a cellular network. With these systems, pressing the wearable help button allows you to speak to a dispatcher through a base unit located in your home. In addition, many companies off er mobile medical alert options, too. You can use these systems at home, but they’ll also allow you to call for help while you’re out and about. Mobile alerts operate over cellular networks and incorporate GPS technology. They allow you to talk and listen to the operator directly through the pendant button, and because of the GPS, your location would be known in order for help to be sent. If your mom doesn’t leave the house very often, she may not need a mobile system, but if she is still active, she may want added protection outside the home. Should her system be monitored or not? The best medical alert systems are monitored, meaning that the help button connects you with a trained operator at a 24/7 dispatching center. But you also have the option to choose a system that isn’t monitored. With these, when you press the help button, the device automatically dials a friend or family member on your programmed emergency call list. These products can often be set up to call multiple people and to contact emergency services if you don’t get an answer from someone on your list. Should you add a fall-detection feature? Most medical alert companies today now off er the option of an automatic fall detection pendant for an additional fee of $10 to $15 per month. These pendants sense falls when they occur and automatically contact the dispatch center, just as they would if you had pressed the call button. But be aware that this technology isn’t full proof. In some cases, this feature may register something as a fall that isn’t. The alarm might go off if you drop it or momentarily lose your balance but don’t actually land on the ground. Top Rated Systems Here are four top companies, rated by Consumer Reports that off er home and mobile monitored medical alert systems: • Bay Alarm Medical: Fees range between $20 and $40 per month; BayAlarmMedical.com; 877-522-9633. • GreatCall’s Lively Mobile Plus: The device costs $50 plus a $25 to $40 monthly service fee; GreatCall.com; 800-650-5921. • MobileHelp: Monthly fees run $20 to $45; MobileHelp.com; 800809-9664. • Phillips Lifeline: $30 to $50/month, plus a onetime device/ activation fee of $50 to $100; Lifeline.Philips.com; 855-681-5351.

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, February 12, 2021 Page 15 VACCINE | FROM PAGE 9 late on any timetable for any group, since it was entirely dependent on the amount of vaccine that would or could be available. Webb emphasized that Malden is in a partnership with several other communities nearby where they accumulate vaccine doses and administer them in a joint planning effort, though the Feb. 17 and 20 clinics will be "Malden-specific". He also noted that Malden and its regional partners have switched to the Pfizer brand of vaccine, as opposed to the Moderna brand, which was used to vaccinate nearly all of the local and regional first responders under Phase 1. Close to 500 first responders were vaccinated in Malden during Phase 1. The big difference is that the Pfizer vaccine doses must be stored in 90 degrees below zero temperatures before use. "There are not a lot of vaccines out there," Webb said, "Had we not switched to Pfizer we would have no doses to administer. We anticipated there would be no Moderna available (for first doses) and we were correct." Webb did say there were Moderna doses available for Phase 1 second-dose recipients. Both Moderna and Pfizer vaccines require two doses for full effectiveness. Another key point in the vaccination process, Webb stressed, was that when people make a legitimate appointment for a first-dose vaccine, they automatically are given an appointment and are guaranteed a second dose with 2832 days of their first-dose appointment. Councillor-at-Large Debbie DeMaria asked how Malden was doing compared to other surrounding communities and matched against the state in its vaccine distribution progress. "I've been closely monitoring the reports and the percentages don't seem to be very good (statewide)," she said. "For a community our size, we are doing pretty well. Surrounding communities are getting a little more vaccine doses than we are, but those communities have substantially higher case numbers," Webb said."We are benefitting from the regional process; it has helped us get more (vaccine) doses. We are working together with the other communities to be equitable to each other in the overall process." ~ LEGAL NOTICE ~ PUBLIC NOTICE CITY OF MALDEN LIQUOR LICENSING BOARD Notice is hereby given that a Public Hearing will be held before the Licensing Board for the City of Malden VIA ZOOM WEBINAR on the 23rd day of February, 2021 at 6:00 p.m. regarding the application of Fajita’s Mexican Grill, Inc.

MVES offers safety tips when walking in snowy and icy conditions Each winter, slip and fall accidents cause serious injuries. Even when surfaces do not look especially icy or slippery, it is very possible that a thin sheet of transparent ice or black ice is covering your pathway putting you at risk. When you approach a footpath or roadway that appears to be covered with ice or snow, always use extreme caution. Many slips and falls happen in places people regard as safe and secure, typically outside their front door, on the doorstep, on the path or while getting out of the car. With the winter weather upon us, Mystic Valley Elder Services’ Safety Committee advises these 10 tips to make sure you are staying safe when walking around in snowy and icy conditions. • Walk slowly and carefully. Wear boots or other slip-resistant footwear. • Use special care when getting in and out of vehicles. Use the vehicle for support if you need to do so. • Watch for slippery floors when you enter any building or home. • Avoid walking with your hands in your pockets; this can Saugus - PRICE CHANGE! $899,000 reduce your ability to catch yourself if you lose your balance. • Watch out for black ice. • Tap your foot on potentially slick areas to see if the areas are slippery. • Walk as fl at-footed as possible in very icy areas. • Avoid uneven surfaces if possible. Avoid steps or curbs with ice on them. • Report any untreated surfaces to your town, property owner, or work’s maintenance department to help keep you safe. • Remember: Ice and snow mean, “take it slow!” Rockport - $559,900 Malden Democrats to Meet via Zoom February 13 T he next meeting of the Malden Democratic City Committee (MDCC) will take place on Saturday, January 13, 10-11:30 am online via Zoom.
