Maldden alld a Vol. 32, No. 9 den AADD -FREEBy Steve Freker I t was an “old school” approach with a present-day vibe on Wednesday night when Mayor Gary Christenson “premiered” the 2023 “State of the City” address. Delivered virtually on the city’s YouTube channel and simulcast on Urban Media Arts (UMA) television stations, the 63-minute livestream event detailed achievements and provided updates for all of the city’s many departments, using a takeoff of the iconic “Saturday Night Live” (SNL) format. In between were some entertaining skits and vignettes, including several references to Mayor Christenson’s attempt to banish winter early in February, capped by a scene with the Mayor standing in a recent snowfall atop City Hall. “Can’t win ’em all,” he says with a shrug. “Live from UMA! It’s “Malden Night Live” the livestream “LIVE from UMA, IT’S MALDEN NIGHT LIVE!” Malden Mayor Gary Christenson (left) and Malden High School ninth-grader Henry Fan, dressed identically as he posed as the Mayor in the opening skit (right) shout out the trademark phrase from “Saturday Night Live,” the theme for Wednesday night’s 2023 State of the City Address.

Murphy himself might very well have been in attendance at Tuesday night’s state tournament game at Lowell High. If he was, he was sitting near Malden High’s bench. Murphy’s Law #1 opines, “Anything that could go wrong, will go wrong.” Enough said for the Golden Tornados boys’ basketball squad in the fi rst half, as it was a tough stretch, to say the least. Turnovers, missed layups, a swinging door defense – all of the above – led to a gigantic lead for the home team Lowell High Raiders. “We could have packed it in at halftime, but instead we came out and played like we had prepared to play,” Malden TOURNEY TIMEOUT: Malden High took a quick timeout after a big scoring blast by host Lowell in the State Tournament on Tuesday night.(Advocate Photo) Head Coach Don Nally said, of what was almost an epic comeback eff ort.

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, March 3, 2023 Page 3 Volunteer residents and community groups join forces to fight extreme heat Let’s make the Mystic “Wicked Cool” T he Mystic River Watershed Association (MyRWA) – in collaboration with the Cities of Everett, Chelsea and Malden, the Town of Arlington, GreenRoots, Everett Community Growers and the Friends of the Malden River – kicked off a project this February to combat extreme heat in their municipalities through ideas led by residents and community leaders. Wicked Cool Mystic, which is funded through the state Municipal Vulnerability Preparedness (MVP) program, is a two-year effort to meaningfully engage residents, workers and community members in designing fun and affordable solutions to help people stay cool and healthy during our increasingly hot summers. Right now residents can share how they experience heat and potential solutions by taking the Wicked Cool Mystic Heat Safety Survey. Residents need to select the survey specifi c to your municipality (Arlington, Malden, Everett, Chelsea – and after completing the survey earn a $25 gift card. The project is a follow-up to Wicked Hot Mystic, a volunteer science eff ort that created a map of the hottest places in the watershed. The data show that the hottest neighborhoods in the Mystic River watershed correlate closely with historic redlining and current low-income communities of color. Wicked Cool Mystic will work with communities experiencing the worst eff ects of extreme heat. Community members will lead in designing, creating and implementing community-specifi c cooling solutions. Eight local Wicked Cool Ambassadors, two from each of the target communities, will help lead these eff orts. The Ambassadors will distribute surveys, attend various community events and lead two community events about extreme heat and cooling interventions. “By recruiting, organizing, and training community members to lead cooling eff orts, we hope the solutions are exciting to the community and meet their specifi c needs,” said MyRWA Community Organizer Marissa Zampino. “This highlights the importance of residents leading the fi ght against climate change as they are the experts in their own communities.” The project will mobilize hundreds of local residents to workshop cooling solutions, such as trees, splash pads, water fountains and misting stations. The project will create pilot projects in Chelsea, Malden and Everett. “I am really excited to get to work on this project and lead cooling eff orts in my community,” said Everett Wicked Cool Mystic Ambassador Juan Soler-Ramos. “My community is really hot, and I want to educate and engage my friends and neighbors about the importance of this issue.” For more information, visit https://mysticriver.org/climate-resilience.

I have been honored to serve as the City Councillor for Ward 6 this term and I am running for re-election to build on the accomplishments and work that I have been collaborating on with Ward 6 residents, my fellow Councillors and Mayor Christenson. I am seeking re-election to continue working with residents to create and implement a community vision for Maplewood Square to ensure it remains the vital heart of our neighborhood as it has for the past 130 years.

The Community Vision will generate an action plan to attract more residents to Maplewood Square through events such as the Mayplewoodfest (scheduled for May 20th this year), beautification projects like the addition of banners, trees, green space and benches and other eff orts to make the Square more attractive and to support local businesses. I am pleased to report that the Trafton Park Phase II project is on track to begin after the Ward 6 July 4th celebration and seek a 2nd term to ensure that project realizes the community goals to improve the Trafton Dog Park by adding new surfacing, water, trees and benches, to revamp the court area by including space for basketball and events as well as tennis and to revitalize the ball fi eld with a new backstop and new grass kept up with a new irrigation system. I have worked with our City Engineer and Traffic Safety Offi cer to dedicate funds for speed warning signs in Maplewood Highlands, the fi rst set ever installed in Ward 6. I have also successfully advocated for an additional crossing guard and safety improvements at Broadway and Salem Street and along Maplewood Street to Stephen Winslow Ward 6 Councillor improve safety for students walking to the Linden and Salemwood Schools. I will continue to champion safety improvements so that all Maldonians can move safely and effi ciently through Maplewood and beyond whether by car, bus, on-foot or bike. In that vein, I have and will continue to advocate funds be spent in Ward 6 for traffi c signal improvements and safer streets including Lebanon Street, Broadway and Eastern Avenue. Ever since the Constance Street neighborhood in Ward 6 fl ooded in the summer of 2021, I have focused on ensuring the City cleans and repairs storm water drains like the Linden Brook Culvert to ensure neither the Constance Street neighbors nor other homeowners in Malden have to go through that experience. Mayor Christenson tapped me to lead the City’s Team overseeing one-time Federal ARPA funds that can be spent on water and sewer improvements and I have been working diligently with City staff , consultants and our Conservation Commission Chair to ensure that needed assessment, cleaning and repairs happen. I am pleased to report that the 2nd phase of the citywide storm drain assessment and cleaning project began this week. Once complete the City’s engineering team will develop plans to repair sections of storm drains that are in the worst state of repair. The same ARPA team has developed an award winning approach to focus on removal of lead lines on streets where the most children live and I will continue to work to expedite removal of lead pipes throughout the City. I look forward to working with fellow Councillors and residents on Climate Action planning and Energy Aggregation. As always I will be a champion of improvements along the Northern Strand Trail which has received funding to construct a bridge leading into Boston and a bikeway to connect through Lynn to the Lynn and Nahant Reservation.

And during the day the air is fresh, clean and as pure as the driven snow; freshly baked bread from Piantedosi Bakery permeates the whole neighborhood; the best pizza pies on the North Shore come from Joe Crowley’s ovens at Pisa Pizza; the (most of the times) aromatic coff ee grinds from New England Coff ee; and the fi nest Chinese cuisine from the smokestack at China Garden.

Till this very day, I am reminded (townie shamed?) that “you’ve only been in the neighborhood for 60 years, Peter.” But I digress. Here I bring you back to 1977 Malden. A simpler time – well, I know that word is subjective, but it sure did feel “simpler.” As I mentioned, one side of Edgeworth was densely populated by Italian immigrants, who formed a tight-knit community full of extended family and paisans, many of those same families remaining. Edgeworth was still dining at Tricca’s, the Stadium Cafe, Gennetti’s Spa and the Highland Café – getting their haircut by Wendell on Pearl Street, Johnny Angelo on Highland Avenue, Frankie Rao also on Highland, or by the heartthrob of housewives throughout neighborhood, “Sal the Barber” on Charles. Social clubs, such as the Italian American War Veterans Club, the Ancient Order of Hibernians, the Italian American Citizens’ Club and the Irish American were fl ourishing – much to the chagrin of (those same) housewives (or signifi cant others) across the Ward – waiting for hubby at dinnertime. Billy Callahan’s 4th of July Parades/ Celebrations were stuff of legend, and the annual Saint Rocco Feast was the highlight of the summer no matter your ethnic/religious background. Amongst the Italians, friends in Edgeworth were made for good and were kept close, forever; unless, of course, you held a grudge, which also lasted forever (insert smiley face and fuhgeddaboudit!). I digress once again. In 1977, Jim Conway sat in the corner offi ce. He was friend to all with an innate ability to connect with all sorts of people. He was also a shrewd politician who could “press the fl esh” with the best of them. Here he is at his best, pressing the fl esh, so to speak, with the Italians of Edgeworth. It was said that Jim counted votes “by the pound.” The neighborhood decided to throw themselves a party – a grand aff air that is still reminisced about to this very day. First, we have “A Proclamation” from hizzoner then we’ll recap the shindig: “Whereas: The people of Edgeworth, Malden, have been dispersed to all parts of the country and the world, by marriage and occupation, and the upheaval of wars, the Edgeworth of old still lives in their fond memories. “Whereas: The present residents of Edgeworth and many former Edgeworthians will gather in joyous reunion and brotherhood to reminisce and tell tales of nostalgia and glory of days long ago in a proud Edgeworth. “Whereas: The people who grew up here were bound together by strong ethnic ties. For MUSINGS | SEE PAGE 7

MUSINGS | FROM PAGE 6 them it was a focal point of excitement and adventure. A marvelous mixture of the free American spirit coupled with the character-building traditions of, ‘The Old Country.’ “Whereas: As years have passed, interest and anxiety will be of the utmost concern seeing how the ‘Old Gang’ has fared over the years in this trying and turbulent world. “Whereas: This being the fi rst reunion of the citizens of Edgeworth, Malden, everyone will celebrate this happy occasion in a cheerful and blessed manner. “Whereas: I, James S. Conway, Mayor of Malden, do hereby declare Saturday, November 12, 1977, as ‘Edgeworth Reunion Day,’ to be celebrated at the Malden Armory, Mountain Avenue, Malden.” As Peter Falk’s iconic TV character Columbo would say, “Just one more thing sir” – this night was a once-in-a-lifetime event. The Edgeworth community showed up – en masse. Such an unmitigated success that a second event took place only a few short years later. Residents started discussing the inaugural event at J. Amicone’s Jelly Factory on Pearl Street (yes, there was a jelly factory on Pearl Street). It was there that the Edgeworth Reunion Committee was formed. Familiar neighborhood names, such as Dom Fermano, Paul Callahan, Gus and Frankie Disano, Joe Fontana (who recently passed away – my condolences to the Fontana family) and Marge Vogel were Committee Offi cers. Arthur Cuscuna, Gerri Belknap, John Colangeli, John and Joey Amicone and Sal “Butchie” Gennetti were on the Board of Directors. Tickets went fast at $17.50 a pop and could be purchased at Gabby’s Barber Shop on Highland Avenue or Amicone’s Jelly Factory on Pearl. Four generations of Edgeworthians – over a thousand people – attended. You read that THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, March 3, 2023 Postscript 1: Most of the committee members in the photo are no longer with us. Joe Bogan, Butchie Gennetti, Dom Fermano and Joan Goodwin may be the “last men standing” – so to speak. But the memories remain. Butchie remembers the night vividly and recalls it as a right: 1,000 showed up to the “elaborately decorated” Malden Armory! The fun got under way at 4 that long ago Saturday with a “get acquainted happy hour” featuring “The Satinaires.” My thoughts – how many gallons of homemade vino were consumed in that hour (in that night?!). At 7 sharp, dinner was served. Our elders danced and made merry until 1 in the morning to the sounds of “The Big Band” before staggering home. I was told services at Saint Peter’s Church were cut short the next morning due to poor attendance. Urban myth? You be the judge. “very emotional evening.” He called it a “happy emotional” gathering (my note: especially with an open bar all evening!) with names and faces not heard or seen in Malden in decades. Paraphrasing Butchie: Time was marching on, carrying friends and (some) family members further and further apart, but the emotional connection between this community survives outside of time. It was a “night for the ages,” he concluded. Postscript 2: In my mind’s eye, all roads lead back to Edgeworth, to that time and place where our/my life journey started. Life stretched out in front of us – exciting, mysterious – to that first at bat on Devir Park’s Bruce Field. To that very fi rst Saint Rocco Feast. To that fi rst stolen kiss on the Bandstand. To that fi rst gym class at Beebe with Mac Singleton. To that fi rst Italian sub with everything (including hots) at the Big A. To that fi rst pizza at the Highland (or DiPietro’s). To that fi rst buckPage 7 et of fried clams at King Neptune. To that fi rst draft beer at Mike’s Cafe. To that fi rst lime rickey at O’Neill’s Drug Store. To the very fi rst time being chased by Malden Peace Offi cers off the corner of Highland & Whitman and the Bandstand. To the very fi rst Joe Levine organized “Chill Out” at the ITAMS. To the fi rst time meeting our brandnew park instructor at Devir, Cliff Cioffi . To meeting (the one and only King of Edgeworth) Albert Spadafora for the fi rst time. All roads – seemingly – leading back to Edgeworth, in my mind’s eye, anyway. Postscript 3: Disclaimer: But you can easily replace Edgeworth with Maplewood, or Lincoln Park, or Linden, or Oak Grove, or Newland Street or Green Street or Amerige. Have a go at it. Don’t cost nothing. And it’s fun! Postscript 4: Congrats, by the way, to Butchie and his daughter Lisa who are just crushing it in bocce tournaments this winter down in Florida. Looking forward to seeing that handsome kisser of yours once again in person, Butchie! Stay well, my friend. —Peter is a longtime Malden resident and a regular contributor to The Malden Advocate.

On Tuesday night, a trio of Malden Reads Committee members introduced the book, “They Called Us Gerry D’Ambrosio Attorney-at-Law Is Your Estate in Order? Do you have an update Will, Health Care Proxy or Power of Attorney? If Not, Please Call for a Free Consultation. 14 Proctor Avenue, Revere (781) 284-5657 Enemy,” by noted author George Takei, to the Malden City Council. Mary D’Urso Rose of Malden UMA and Dora St. Martin, Malden Public Library Director, discussed the book selection and described the many ways and activities Malden Reads will be coordinating to spread the word and introduce the book to the Malden community. This is the first time since 2019, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, that Malden Reads will be able to go back to the expansive list of activities it has used in the past to introduce and promote its book selections. “Like everyone else, we had to pivot during COVID and scale back and use the virtual setting,” D’Urso Rose said. “Now Malden Reads is back with many programs and events.” Plans in the works include: • Various types of book discussions • Virtual book discussion • Mayor’s book discussion • Idle Hands Brewery, Books and Pizza • First Parish Malden book discussion • Community Dinners where book will be a dinner topic • “Citizen’s Lyceum” will be held with topic “A Question of Loyalty” • Bonsai History and Presentation • Steve Kluger, former Boston Globe writer – “Baseball in the Internment Camps” • Hands-on creative workshops, as in “Draw Your Own Story” with a professional graphic artist Sky Malerba and Family Stories Through Art with Sharon Santillo Our 50th Anniversary Dan - 1972 We Sell Cigars & Accessories!

CIGAR 170 REVERE ST., REVERE (781) 289-4959 Malden Reads is celebrating its 13th Season of “One City, One Book” with the introduction of its new selection, “They Called Us Enemy,” a graphic novel recollection by author George Takei of his childhood days spent in a Japanese internment camp in Arkansas during World War II. All of the information, including dates and times, will be posted on the Malden Reads website: www. maldenreads.org Several of the City Councillors said they were not familiar with the graphic novel format in which the book is written, which is akin to a comic book presentation in book format. “Every year it gets better and better. Every time you come out with a selection, like this one, that has so much relevance,” Councillor-at-Large Karen Colón Hayes said. “We are so lucky to have [Malden Reads].” “I was not knowledgeable about graphic novels; this is my first one, but I have found you can dive into some intense topics with this format,” Ward 3 Councillor Amanda Linehan said. “I have come to really like it.” “This will also be my first graphic novel,” Ward 4 Councillor Ryan O’Malley said. “[This format] can really explain the people involved and their feelings.” And to Malden Reads, he said, “Thank you for all you do.” “They Called us Enemy” by George Takei is this year’s selection by Malden Reads for their “One City, One Book” program. “This is a topic that everyone should learn about,” Ward 6 Councillor Steve Winslow said of the Japanese internment during World War II. “I only learned about this in college. I had never heard of it before that in all my years in school.” “It was very impressive to hear that Malden Reads is a leader on a national basis. We appreciate all you offer and do for our community,” said Councillor-at-Large Carey McDonald. Here’s how to get a copy of “They Called Us Enemy” Malden Reads invites everyone to read “They Called Us Enemy” by George Takei, the 2023 Malden Reads main book selection for adults and high schoolers! Younger readers are encouraged to read the “companion” books, which similarly explore the themes and ideas of “They Called Us Enemy.” There are several ways to get a copy of the main book selection or companion books.

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, March 3, 2023 Page 9 BASKETBALL | FROM PAGE 1 tear, nearly doubling their score with a furious 26-5 fourth quarter advantage. It was too late to fully recover, as Lowell (11-10) held on to a 61-52 win. Lowell now advances to play on the road at BC High Friday night at 6:00. With the loss, Malden ends with a 12-9 overall record, but recouping a lot of respect around town and the Greater Boston League (GBL) after a one-win season last year. For Malden, the fourth quarter was easily their highest-scoring quarter of the season, in addition to holding Lowell to just one basket the entire span. “I just wish we could have done a better job and cut down on our mistakes in the first half, so we did not have such a big number to come back from,” Coach Nally said, “but we make it respectable and give our kids credit for never giving up.” Malden could not get anything done in the first quarter, while Lowell did plenty, capitalizing on a bunch of Tornado turnovers and making both high-percentage, fastbreak layups as well as burying several “threes” from deep. Lowell raced to a 26-7 first quarter lead and were not much better hosts in the second quarter. Malden stayed ice-cold on their The Malden High School Boys Basketball Team fell to host Lowell High, 61-52, on Tuesday night in the preliminary round of the MIAA Division 1 State Tournament, despite outscoring the Raiders, 26-5, in the fourth quarter. (Advocate Photo) scoring end of the court and Lowell kept it up, running it up to a 43-14 lead at halftime. The third quarter started the same way for Lowell, and the Raiders had a seemingly insurmountable 50-18 lead three minutes into the second half, before Malden evened it out the rest of the quarter, trailing 57-27 after three. There was one more quarter to play, though, and Malden was not finished just yet. Two guards off the bench ignited the improbable, fourth quarter burst. Malden senior Aidan Tham and sophomore Jose Ferreira both scored baskets to start the rally. Tham actually ended up with a season-high 7 points – scoring them all in a row with a jump shot, a driving layup and a swish three-pointer to cut the Lowell lead to 57-34. Ferreira had a steal, a pass off, a return pass and a layup to make it 57-36. Then the rest of the Tornado calvary arrived. Senior guard Justin Bell took senior teammate Tham’s cue and began a furious scoring frenzy that recalled Detroit Piston legend Vinnie “The Microwave” Johnson from the 1980s. Bell, Malden’s leading scorer, was held to just three points, one basket and one free throw –both in the first half – exploded for 15 fourth-quarter points, including two “threes” to fuel the rally. Meanwhile, fellow senior captain, 6-6 center Jonald Joseph, was controlling the defense for Malden, which held Lowell to just one basket and three free throws in the fourth quarter during the 26-5 Malden run. Joseph had four blocked shots and three assists in the rally. Malden kept taking bites out of the lead and was down 60-50 with 1:02 left to play, but a pair of Tornado turnovers made the red-hot comeback fizzle. Still, it was a bright spot on what could have been a much bigger final score had the Tornados not fought until the end. “We have a lot to be proud of this year and our senior leadership of Justin Bell, Peyton Carron, Jonald Joseph, Andrew Louis and Aidan Tham was very impressive this year,” Coach Nally said. “We had one-win last year and this year we have 12. That’s saying something and we battled to the end against a very good Lowell team.” Nally said there are some solid returnees for next season and that he’s looking forward to continued success. “Zeke Noelsaint [junior forward] had an excellent season and Ethan Phejarasai [point guard] is just a freshman. He exceeded all our expectations. Those two and several other guys coming back will give us a good foundation. “We wish our seniors best of luck and are proud of their achievements this season and through their careers here,” Nally added. “They had to live through the worst of the COVID pandemic and they stayed strong. They will be fine in whatever life brings them after battling through that adversity.”

Noriega-Murphy said, noting the “continued hard work of our amazing staff and the support of our students’ families.” • In 2022, the Mayor noted, Malden Public Schools saw a substantial rise in student population – now close to 6,500 citywide; a successful streamlining of the student registration process at the MPS Welcome Center, including a new online registration portal; a new and successful curriculum introduction into the K-8 schools; a positive upward trend in MCAS scores districtwide; and a resurgence in student participation in extracurricular activities, such as athletics and family recreational and social events within the school district framework. • Over 600 Malden High School students achieved Honor Roll status on their First Quarter Report Cards, all grades 80% (B) or better.

There were no roll calls in the House or Senate last week. MORE TIME TO CONSIDER AMENDMENTS (H 2023) House 23-130, rejected a rule that would prohibit technical or perfecting amendments from being considered until 30 minutes after a copy of the amendment has been received by representatives. The rule would allow such an amendment to be considered in less than 30 minutes if a two-thirds vote of the House agrees to the shortened time. “Providing a half hour to review a technical or perfecting amendment would give members an opportunity to ask questions, get answers and better understand the amendment before a vote takes place,” said sponsor GOP House Minority Leader Brad Jones (R-North Reading). “I think this change is eminently reasonable and fair, and it also provides an option for the 30-minute review period to be waived or suspended if enough members agree to it.” Opponents of the rule said technical amendments are just that—technical, and don’t need a half hour to review. They argued that the 30-minute requirement is unnecessary and noted members are currently informally given suffi cient time to see the amendments before they are considered. (A ”Yes” vote is for allowing 30 minutes. A “No” vote is against allowing 30 minutes.) Rep. Paul Donato No Rep. Steven Ultrino No GIVE 1-WEEK NOTICE (H 2025) House 24-129, rejected an amendment that would increase from three days to seven days the amount of advance notice for committees to notify the House and the public of the time, location and agenda of all public hearings and executive sessions. "A public hearing before a committee is the only opportunity that a person has to be directly involved in the legislative process,” said Rep. Todd Smola (R-Warren). “By expanding the notifi cation window for when hearings take place from 72 hours to one week, we are providing the public with more time to prepare and participate in the process. We welcome the viewpoints of our constituents on bills before the Legislature, bills which are often nuanced and very complex. It is not unreasonable to provide people with a few more days’ notice before a hearing commences.” Opponents of the amendment said three days is more than suffi cient and noted that under House rules, members of the public no longer have to plan far in advance to come into the Statehouse to testify since they can now testify online from their home. They noted that the increase to a week unnecessarily goes too far. (A ”Yes” vote is for requiring seven days’ notice. A “No” vote is against requiring seven days’ notice.) Rep. Paul Donato No Rep.

The donor would also receive a tax credit of up to $5,000. A similar bill received a favorable report from the Judiciary Committee last year but died from inaction in the House. “Massachusetts saw the greatest percentage growth in food insecurity in the nation during the pandemic,” said sponsor Sen. Jo Comerford (D-Northampton). “It could have been even more severe had it not been for commonwealth farmers who came forward again and again with donations of produce, dairy and meat— all the while acutely aware that they make 94 cents for every dollar they spend. Through a tax credit, this bill further incentivizes already committed farmers, as well as generous local restaurants, to donate food to food banks, meal sites and pantries—allowing them an opportunity to give within an expanded liability protection framework while strengthening our food system.” TAX CREDIT FOR DONATION OF OYSTER SHELLS (SD 432) – Would provide a tax credit of $5 per full 5-gallon bucket to individuals or businesses that donate oyster shells to an oyster shell recycling organization. “A shell recycling tax credit presents a creative and thoughtful tool to help diminish land fi ll waste, create habitat and mitigate pollution in our waters,” said sponsor Sen. Julian Cyr (D-Truro). “A $5 tax credit per 5-gallon bucket of recycled shells for restaurants will help encourage this environmentally friendly practice.” LAST MONTH’S RENT AND SECURITY DEPOSIT (SD 141) – Would amend a current law which allows landlords to charge both last month’s rent and a security deposit to new tenants. “If this bill is enacted, landlords will only be permitted to charge last month's rent or the security deposit,” said sponsor Sen. Jamie Eldridge (D-Acton). In short, this bill signifi - cantly lowers the upfront cost of renting.” PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES MUST RELEASE TAX RETURNS (SD 617) – Would require any presidential candidate who fi les to appear on a primary ballot in Massachusetts to release the most recent four years of their federal tax returns. “For half a century, it has been a bipartisan custom for presidential candidates to release their tax returns before the election,” said sponsor Sen. Becca Rausch (D-Needham). “I fi led this legislation because voters deserve transparency from presidential candidates. Tax returns provide the necessary information to assess the details of a candidate’s potential confl icts of interest or possible corruption which could have an undue infl uence on candidates should they be elected to offi ce.” ESTABLISH CHILDREN’S CABINET (SD 2242) – Would establish, under the governor’s offi ce, a Children's Cabinet to develop and implement a cohesive vision using integrated services to improve child, youth and family outcomes, including issues relating to child poverty, educational preparedness, mental health, homelessness, foster care, juvenile justice and the health, safety and welfare of children. “I am proud to sponsor this legislation so we can ensure the wellbeing of our children is prioritized and elevated across the most powerful cabinets of state government,” said sponsor Sen. Sal DiDomenico (D-Everett). “Children across our state were some of the hardest hit individuals throughout the pandemic.” He noted the new cabinet will coordinate government agencies to use every lever of power to feed, house and protect our kids. $1,500 TAX CREDIT FOR HEARING AIDS PURCHASE (SD 355) – Would allow a $1,500 tax credit for taxpayers 55 and older who purchase hearing aids. “Hearing loss is one of the most common struggles for our seniors and many times these devices are out of their fi nancial reach,” said sponsor Sen. Patrick O’Connor (R-Weymouth). “Insurance companies will ofBHRC| SEE PAGE 13 Sign up dates Mayor seeks new member for Malden Disability Commission M ayor Gary Christenson is reaching out to Malden residents to fi ll a vacancy on the Malden Disability Commission.

They have been through some of the toughest times with the COVID pandemic and other adversities,” said 18th-year Head Coach Don Nally. “We also went through a very tough season last year (1-19) and these senior producers.” --- Massachusetts Department of Agricultural Resources Commissioner John Lebeaux announcing that Massachusetts has been awarded $1.4 million to expand the Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program. “Massachusetts has completely lost its economic competitive edge, now having the highest top tax rate for income taxes in New England, and seventh highest in the entire country.

Jon Santiago (D-Boston), a major in the U.S. Army Reserve and a physician as the state’s Secretary of Veterans’ Affairs which was recently elevated to a cabinet level position. “One thing I did hear as I crisscrossed the state is, yes, folks want us to pay attention to some national issues, of course, and protect us, but they don’t want us to forget the issues we have to deal with here at home.” ---Attorney General Andrea Campbell. HOW LONG WAS LAST WEEK’S SESSION? Beacon Hill Roll Call tracks well. He scored a season-high 38 points in a season-opening win over Medford, and when he was hot, he poured in the points. PEYTON CARRON: A third-year varsity player and a senior captain, Carron was a fixture in the starting lineup and helped create stability on the court. He also could shoot the “three” and proved to be a reliable rebounder as the season progressed. ANDREW LOUIS: A first-year player in the program, the 6-4, the length of time that the House and Senate were in session each week. Many legislators say that legislative sessions are only one aspect of the Legislature’s job and that a lot of important work is done outside of the House and Senate chambers. They note that their jobs also involve committee work, research, constituent work and other matters that are important to their districts. Critics say that the Legislature does not meet regularly or long enough to debate and vote in public view on the thousands of pieces of legislation that have been filed. They note that the infrequency and brieflength of sessions are misguided and lead to irresponsible late-night sessions and a mad rush to act on dozens of bills in the days immediately preceding the end of an annual session. During the week of February 20210 Louis was a rugged contributor under the boards and on defense, making the transition from football captain to basketball big man – made some key minutes count in some big Malden wins. AIDEN THAM: A reliable guard off the bench, he could shoot threes, drive to the hoop and provide steady defense. His best game was his last, when he came off the bench and threw in 7 points to spark a big Malden rally in the loss against Lowell. 24, the House met for a total of nine minutes while the Senate met for a total of four minutes.

Page 14 THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, March 3, 2023 WHY IRREVOCABLE TRUSTS ARE MOST OFTEN A BETTER CHOICE OVER LEGAL LIFE ESTATES B y placing your home, rental property or other assets into an irrevocable trust, the five year look back period will begin. Five years later, the assets in the irrevocable Trust will not be countable for MassHealth eligibility purposes. Furthermore, not only is probate avoided upon the Settlor’s death (i.e. the creator of the trust), but probate would also be avoided if a child/beneficiary were to die prior to the Settlor (i.e. parent). The predeceased child’s children or even grandchildren would become a beneficiary of the trust and that child’s beneficial interest in the trust would escape the probate process. If that child leaves minor children behind, the trustee would follow the terms of the trust and pay for items such as medical expenses, educational expenses, house expenses, etc. If, on the other hand, a parent chooses to deed the home or rental property to his or her children directly, while reserving a life estate, and one of the children were to predecease the parent, that child’s remainder interest in that property would be part of his or her probate estate. As estate planners, we try to avoid the probate process whenever possible for many reasons, such as cost and time delays. This could present a problem many years down the road if no one takes steps to probate the estate of the predeceased child. Furthermore, in a legal life estate situation, the parent would need the consent of the child who has a remainder interest in the property in order to sell the property. With an irrevocable trust, the child has no current ownership interest. The trustee is free to sell the real estate any time without the consent of the child. If the trust is drafted as a grantor-type trust, the capital gain exclusion of $500,000 on the sale of the principal residence will still be afforded to the Settlor of the trust. If it was rental property that was sold, the entire capital gain would still be reported by the Settlor on his or her tax return. The children would not be reporting any of the capital gains transactions on their own tax returns. The trust would actually file a tax return as a grantor-type trust and then issue a grantor letter to the Settlor (also referred to as a Grantor). With a legal life estate, the capital gain on the sale of a home or rental property would have to be allocated to the parent who reserved the life estate and the children who are the remaindermen. The computation for IRS purposes is based on the Book Aleph table and the IRS Section 7520 interest rates. For MassHealth purposes, at least for now, the computation is based upon the Social Security POMS tables. Hopefully, MassHealth will agree to use the IRS tables as the IRS tables are much more favorable to the life tenant if the home were to be sold, for example, as less of the net sales proceeds will be placed back on the table for the life tenant only to be included as a countable asset for MassHealth eligibility purposes. With an irrevocable trust, if the home or rental property is sold and converted to cash, the cash is safe inside the irrevocable trust. There is no risk of the trust assets becoming countable. If the parent decides to serve as trustee and there is a trust provision allowing for use and occupancy of any real estate held in trust, then any real estate abatement offered by the city or town will remain intact. It will not be lost due to placing the home into trust. The trust must be absolutely clear that there can be no principal distributions to the Settlor under any circumstances and that the Trustee must strictly adhere to the terms of the trust and comply with each and every fiduciary duty owed to the remaindermen of the Trust.

CATALDO, CPA, CFP, MST, ESQUIRE. AICPA Personal Financial Specialist Designee avvy S oiorenniioor nior by Jim Miller How to Protect Seniors from Scam Calls Dear Savvy Senior, What tools can you recommend to help protect trusting seniors from scam calls? My 74-year-old mother gets tons of unwanted telemarketing and robocalls on her cell and home phone and has been duped out of hundreds of dollars. Frustrated Daughter Dear Frustrated, It’s a great question! Scammers are always looking for new ways to dupe people out of money, and in the U.S., phone calls remain the primary way swindlers hook older victims. The Federal Trade Commission recently found that 24 percent of adults over age 60 who reported losing money to a scam in 2021 said it started with a phone call – the largest percentage of any method, including email, text and mail. To help protect your mom from the onslaught of robocall scams, telemarketing and spam calls, here are some tips and tools you can help her employ. Register Her Numbers If your mom hasn’t already done so, a good fi rst step in limiting at least some unwanted calls is to make sure her home and cell phone numbers are registered with the National Do Not Call Registry. While this won’t stop fraudulent scam calls, it will stop unwanted calls from legitimate businesses who are trying to sell her something. To sign up, call 888-382-1222 from the phone number you want to register, or you can do it online at DoNotCall.gov. Cell Phone Protection Most wireless providers today off er good tools for stopping scam calls and texts. For example, AT&T has the ActiveArmor Mobile Security app; Verizon provides the Call Filter app; and T-Mobile off ers the Scam Shield app. To activate these tools, download the spam-blocking app from your mom’s carrier on her phone, which you can do at the Apple and Google App store. These apps are free to use, but most carriers will also off er upgraded services that you can get for a small monthly fee. If, however, your mom uses a regional or small wireless carrier that doesn’t off er scam/robocall protection you can use a free third-party app. Truecaller (Truecaller.com), Call Control (CallControl.com), Hiya (Hiya.com) and YouMail (YouMail.com) are all good options to consider. Built-In Call Blockers Many smartphones today also off er built-in tools that can block spam calls. If your mom uses a newer iPhone (iOS 13 or later), she can completely silence all unknown callers who aren’t in her contacts list in the phone “Settings.” Silencing all unknown callers is an extreme solution that will defi nitely stop all unwanted calls, but your mom will also miss some legitimate calls too. However, unknown callers do have the option to leave a voice message and their calls will appear in her recent calls list. And she can add any number to her contact list to let them through in the future. If your mom owns a new Android phone, she can also block spam calls in the phone “Settings.” Or, if she owns a Samsung Galaxy phone, she can use “Smart Call,” which fl ags suspected spam calls and allows her to block and report them. She can also block specifi c reoccurring spam call numbers on iPhones and Android manually. Home Landline Protection To stop scam calls on your mom’s home phone set up the “anonymous call rejection” option. This is a free feature available from most telephone companies, however some may charge a fee. It lets you screen out calls from callers who have blocked their caller ID information – a favorite tactic of telemarketers. To set it up, you usually have to dial *77 from your landline, though diff erent phone services may have diff erent procedures. Call your mom’s telephone service provider to fi nd out if they off er this tool, and if so, what you need to do to enable it. And if they don’t off er it, fi nd out what other call blocking options they off er. Send your senior questions to: Savvy Senior, P.O. Box 5443, Norman, OK 73070, or visit SavvySenior.org.

O. Ruan did most of the damage by scoring 24 of their points as well as connecting on seven three-pointers. The Kings’ B.
