Maldden alld a Vol. 31, No. 11 den AADD -FREEBy Steve Freker T he Malden City Council waded into international “waters” for the fi rst time in recent memory at Tuesday night’s regular meeting. The members also weighed in on a statewide issue, acting on a request from a Malden-based community organization. The result was the passage of a pair of City Council resolutions, both centered on human rights issues. One of the resolutions came following a request from the Zonta of Malden organization. Following an appearance by a representative of Zonta during the public comment section and some additional remarks from Ward 3 Councillor Amanda Linehan and others, the City Council voted unanimously, 10-0, to approve the following: Resolve: That we, the Malden City Council strongly condemn Malden's only local news source for over 30 years!

(Advocate Photo/Steve Freker) Malden High’s 82nd Annual Junior Varieties show was a ‘MARVEL-ous’ success Class of 2023’s signature event entertained big audiences in Jenkins Auditorium this past weekend By Steve Freker W hen they look back on their school years, many Malden Malden High senior Melissa Calixte performs an original rap during MHS’ 82nd Annual Junior Varieties show last weekend. (Advocate Photo/Henry Huang) High alumni recall the annual Junior Varieties show as one of their fondest memories. Whether they participated directly in the show or took it in as part of the audience, the performances of their classmates stay with them for years to come. For the 82nd year, one of the longest-running, continuous high school variety shows in the nation did not disappoint, with two well-attended shows on Friday and Saturday evenings jampacked with an eclectic mix of talent. The planning and delivery of the performances went so well that even “Loki” could not deter the “MARVEL-ous” success of the Class of 2023’s, whose theme was centered on the Marvel comics and characters. The show featured a mix of vocalists – both solos and duets – along with dance troupes and soloists, pianists and the incomparable MHS Step Team. “It was a big success; everyone worked very hard to help make it a great weekend,” said MHS Class of 2023 Advisor Michael Lightbody, a longtime MHS Social Studies teacher and himself a 1986 MHS alumnus. “Junior Varieties never lets you down! The performers were incredible. The audience was excited. Mike Lightbody and Jim Valente and the junior class knocked it out of the park,” said MHS Principal Chris Mastrangelo. “It was awesome to see the auditorium fi lled with our students participating in an 82 year tradition at MHS.” The show is dubbed “Junior Varieties” because the hosts of the annual event is the “reigning” junior class at MHS, which is continually fundraising in its four years at the school, with the ultimate goal being to lessen the cost of the Senior Prom for the members of the Class of 2023. Junior Varieties is the biggest one-event fundraiser for the junior class; its revenue usually represents a substantial portion of the over $20,000 the class aims to raise in the course of its SHOW | SEE PAGE 10

The Metro Boston ADRC comprises community organizations that support older adults, persons with disabilities and their caregivers: Mystic Valley Elder Services, the Boston Center for Independent Living, Minuteman Senior Services, Somerville Cambridge Elder Services and Springwell. “The Metro Boston Aging and Disability Resource Consortium agencies have been at the forefront of supporting communities through the pandemic and view the opportunity to promote vaccine participation as an extension of our ongoing work,” said Metro Boston ADRC Coordinator Hilary Viola. “Boosters are a critical tool to help mitigate the risk of COVID transmission and serious illness.” The grant-funded campaign “Get Boosted Boston” includes direct mail, print advertisements and online resources through a comprehensive website, GetBoostedBoston.org, all of which provide multiple options on how to make vaccine booster appointments. The information is available in multiple languages and provides links to find local appointments via Vaxfinder and pop-up mobile clinics online. If access to the internet is a problem, there is the phone alternative of calling 211, and if someone is unable to leave their home, they may call (833) 983-0485 to arrange an in-home booster. The Massachusetts Executive Office of Elder Affairs has praised the Metro Boston ADRC and their partners in helping older adults gain access to vaccines and boosters, stating that their efforts “propelled Massachusetts to be amongst the highest vaccinated states in the country.” Now that almost 1.4 million adults aged 60 and above in the Commonwealth are eligible for a COVID-19 vaccination booster, the Metro Boston ADRC’s work in promoting and facilitating access to COVID-19 vaccination and booster doses is vital to protect those they serve, as well as the overall population.

Page 4 THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, March 18, 2022 Sen. Lewis joins colleagues to pass oversight reforms for veterans’ homes in wake of COVID-19 tragedy O n March 10, 2022, State Senator Jason Lewis joined his Senate colleagues to unanimously pass legislation to increase public oversight over the administration of state-operated veterans’ homes in Holyoke and Chelsea. To improve safety and transparency at the veterans’ homes, the bill mandates restructuring the chain of command to more closely match established administrative practices used in hospitals and other large organizations. This legislation follows continued scrutiny of administrative and other failures at the Soldiers’ Home in Holyoke that led to the tragic deaths of 77 veterans during the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic. “Our veterans and their families have made many sacrifi ces to serve and protect our nation, and it is unconscionable that so many veterans lost their lives due to inadequate health and safety protocols at the Holyoke veterans’ home,” said Lewis. “I’m hopeful that this legislation will lead to the reforms and necessary oversight to ensure that a tragedy like this never happens again and that our veterans’ homes provide the highest quality care to their residents.” ANGELO’S FULL SERVICE Regular Unleaded $4.159 Mid Unleaded $4.369 Super $4.499 Diesel Fuel $4.979 "43 Years of Excellence!" 1978-2021 KERO $6.99 DEF $4.75 9 Diesel $4.559 9 HEATING OIL 24-Hour Burner Service Call for Current Price!

Jason Lewis State Senator This comprehensive reform bill is designed to increase the safety of residents of veterans’ homes in the Commonwealth. A new, full-time ombudsperson would receive, investigate and assist in resolving complaints related to the health, well-being and rights of veterans’ homes’ residents and staff . To eff ectively aid these eff orts, a public hotline would be created for residents and staff to direct concerns. The bill would also task the Department of Public Health (DPH) with regularly inspecting the homes; all inspection reports would be made publicly available, excluding identifying information of patients and staff . Veterans’ homes would be required to be licensed as longterm care facilities by DPH and adhere to the same standards and regulations. This bill would also: • Give the authority to appoint a superintendent for each of the veterans’ homes to the Executive Director of the Offi ce of Veterans’ Homes and Housing. • Create a statewide Massachusetts Veterans’ Homes Advisory Council – tasked with recommending policies to the Secretary of Veterans Services – as well as Regional Councils, which would be tasked with representing the interests of the local community, residents and family members at each veterans’ home. • Require each veterans’ home to have a full-time specialist in infection control and emergency preparedness and to adhere to medically sound guidelines for trauma-informed care, including best practices for the treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder and suicide prevention. • Remove existing procedural hurdles which make it harder to donate operating supplies, clothing, medical equipment, personal hygiene products and holiday gifts to veterans’ homes. • Require state-operated veterans’ homes to accept Medicare and Medicaid payments. • Provide mental health resources to employees of state-operated veterans’ homes who worked during the pandemic. • Create a commission to rename the Soldiers’ Homes in Chelsea and Holyoke after specifi c Massachusetts veterans. • Establish March 21 as Veterans’ Homes Remembrance Day, to honor the veterans who lost their lives due to the tragic COVID-19 outbreaks at veterans’ homes. Since a version of An Act relative to the governance, structure and care of veterans at the Commonwealth’s veterans’ homes was previously (February 10, 2022) passed (156-1) by the Massachusetts House of Representatives, a conference committee will be appointed to resolve diff erences between the Senate and House versions of the bill, and then the Legislature will send its fi nal bill to Governor Charlie Baker for his signature or other action(s). MassHealth expands long-term care coverage for immigrants A s of November 1, 2021, thousands of immigrants are now eligible for long-term care coverage under MassHealth, the state’s Medicaid program. This new policy is an expansion of MassHealth Family Assistance to cover longterm services and supports for elderly and disabled immigrants. The new guidelines entitle qualifi ed immigrants to receive long-term care and supports in a skilled nursing facility or in the community, including limited access to home care and other programs covered by Standard MassHealth. This change will also ensure that MassHealth Family Assistance enrollees have access to the resources they need to transition from acute hospitals to other settings, including back to their own homes. Prior to this policy change, hundreds of immigrants remained longer than needed in Massachusetts hospitals because of immigration-related barriers to long-term care coverage. Please call Mystic Valley Elder Services at 781-324-7705 to learn more about this change and determine whether or not you or a loved one is eligible for enhanced supports through this coverage expansion.

On National “Promposal Day” – no less – a generous, longtime Malden business owner once again stepped to the fore in supporting those in need. This time it was the Malden High School Senior Class of 2022, which has been beset by more than its fair share of setbacks related to the calamity of COVID-19. Well-known throughout his 11 years-plus in office of “keeping his ear to the ground,” Malden Mayor Gary Christenson caught wind of a financial dilemma faced by the Malden High School Senior Class of 2022 in planning perhaps the most special of all high school students’ traditional events: Senior Prom. The Mayor learned from fifthyear Malden High Principal Chris Mastrangelo that there was a “good news-bad news” element to this year’s prom planning.

Page 6 THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, March 18, 2022 Malden Today, Tomorrow and Yesterday – reintroducing Paul Donato By Peter F. Levine S tate Representative Paul Donato is straight out of Compton, oops, I mean Medford. But make no mistake; he is one of Malden’s best friends. Has been since “goodness knows when” (Three Stooges catchphrase). He knows all the local characters. He knows the landscape. He knows the fl ava from Robinson’s News to John Brewer’s Tavern. And he knows where all the best restaurants are (and where a few bodies are buried – I kid)! In all seriousness, when it comes to doing the right thing, Mr. Donato checks off all the correct boxes. Constituents he reps in Malden and our Thanksgiving Day archrival, Meff a, voted him in year after year after year because he is always on the right side of the issue. Renewable energy? Check. Keeping children safe? Check. Fighting for veterans? Check. Adores puppies? Check. Loves long walks at sunset on Revere Beach. Check! This election Paul would give his right arm to continue to serve the good folks of Malden and Medford. You know him as a public servant who always fi ghts the good fi ght. Let’s get to know Paul the person, just a little bit. You wanted the best!? You got the best! Ten questions for the hardest working man in show biz... 1. Where would you most like Law Offices of Terrence W. Kennedy 512 Broadway, Everett • Criminal Defense • Personal Injury • Medical Malpractice Tel: (617) 387-9809 Cell: (617) 308-8178 twkennedylaw@gmail.com to buy a one-way ticket to? Sicily. 2. What person, alive or dead, would you like to eat dinner with? Abraham Lincoln. 3. What’s one song to play to put yourself in a good mood? “It’s Impossible” by Perry Como. 4. What is the one piece of advice that most changed your life? Be true to yourself. 5. What one piece of advice would you give your younger self? Reach for the stars. 6. What’s the one thing that keeps you motivated? Being able to help people. 7. What’s the one thing you want to be remembered for? Helping to improve the lives of children in the foster care system. 8. Malden is a small, vibrant community with, by any stanState Representative Paul Donato channels his inner Miles Davis. (Courtesy Photo) dard of measurement, a bright future. You’ve represented Malden for a long time. Through good times and bad. With the infl ux of new restaurants, new residents, a forward-looking administration in City Hall led by Mayor Christenson and his staff , the removal of the city hall building/police station and the ongoing “transit-oriented development” centered around the Orange Line – what is your vision of Malden and the downtown area, in say, five years? And how would you continue to spur growth in Malden? I’m really excited about what’s happening in Malden, especially downtown. I foresee additional residential and business development, as well as many new restaurant opportunities. My vision is to upgrade and rehabilitate the Malden Train Station to accommodate those who will take advantage of the indicated opportunities. In addition, I’m excited for my ability to assist the city in acquiring the old Malden Courthouse that hopefully will be transformed into an Arts and Cultural Center. 9. Malden has long been known for its outstanding restaurants, delis and bakeries. What was your go-to place in the past? What is your go-to place today? My old go-to was Pasta Market and my current favorite is All Seasons Table. 10. What one thing would people be surprised to learn about you? I spent eight years in two foster homes as a foster child. You are a longtime Maldonian if you remember… When Malden had two movie theaters (The Strand & Granada); you’re an even longer resident if you remember when we had three. When the Malden River ran under Charles Street along Canal and could be openly viewed behind the Granada Theatre in all its trash strewn pre-EPA polluted glory. When you could make it from your home in Edgeworth to the Square (substitute your section of Malden here) without hitting a light if you knew which side streets to take; try that today. When Freddie’s Market on Pearl Street was a thriving neighborhood Italian Deli before the corporate giants came in and altered a way of life. When Mr. Carroll (our very patient meteorology teacher at Malden High School) would have you deposit all illegal or banned substances on his desk before you departed for the restrooms. When basketball players would be lined up 30 deep at the YMCA on a Wednesday night for the next game. When the DPW fl ooded Devir Park in the winter and most of the best hockey players in the city (and the state for that matter) would play deep into the night; players such as the Matty & Mike Marden, Frankie & Mike Hanley, Joey & Peter Mayne, and the Surette brothers Steve, Dave and John. When the Settemio brothers Billy & Dommy took ownership of the Stadium Café sometime in the late 70s (now home to John Brewer’s Tavern) and had their incredibly successful and very popular “Three Stooges Nights.” When then manager of the Augustine Athletics of the Intercity League Steve Ring got involved in a disagreement with some of the youngsters from the Bandstand and was pig piled right there on the pitcher’s mound at Devir Park as bat MALDEN: TODAY| SEE PAGE 18

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, March 18, 2022 Page 7 Urban Media Arts presents gallery reception and short screening of “Voice of the Malden River” on March 26 A group of Malden students collaborated with Urban Media Arts (UMA) and Malden River Works to create a Photo-Narrative project sharing pictures and refl ections of the Malden River. Photos taken by the students and interns are on display at Gallery UMA through April 4. On March 26, from 3:00 p.m.3:30 p.m., there will be a tour of the gallery at UMA (145 Pleasant St. in Malden). This will be followed by a screening of related short fi lms and a follow-up discussion from 3:30 p.m.-4:30 p.m., which will be held nearby – at the Malden Senior Center (7 Washington St.). Food and beverages will be provided during the discussion/Q&A. There will also be an additional chance to view the gallery following the screening, from 4:30– 5:00 p.m. Media arts meets environmental activism at this eye-catching and inspiring event. Tickets are donation based and can be reserved through Eventbrite-https://www. eventbrite.com/e/voice-ofthe-malden-river-gallery-reception-and-screening-tickets-294036349637. This project came out of ongoing programming with Malden students. Over the spring and summer of 2021, students from Malden Catholic and Malden High participated in cleaning up and documenting the land surrounding the Malden River. From these programs, they created the Photo-Narrative project and series of short films that will be on view on March 26. On April 21, 2021, the students did a river cleanup at River’s Edge park in Medford while simultaneously capturing video and imagery to create a PSA project titled “Be a Role Model! Protect the Malden River!” to spread the word about the excessive plastic debris that is carelessly dumped into the river. With Karen Buck doubling as their tour guide and teacher, the students witnessed the leaking trash boom that was placed in the river to stop some, yet not all, of the ultimate damage done. They also interviewed and fi lmed Matt Preotle of Preotle, Lane and Associates to learn about the development at River’s Edge!

Consequently, the actions of the Biden administration are contrary to U.S. and international laws against returning migrants to persecution and torture; and WHEREAS, In early September 2021, images revealed the inhumane treatment of Haitian migrants at the hands of U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents who, mounted on horseback, used the hides of their whips to violently chase Haitian migrants, a cruel reminder of slavery and the anti-Blackness embedded in this country’s immigration policy; and WHEREAS, On September 24, 2021, Haitian community leaders in Boston organized a protest in front of the John F. Kennedy federal building denouncing the deportations of Haitian migrants and the inhumane treatment by border offi - cials. Many local and state offi - cials joined in this protest; and WHEREAS, The deportations under Title 42 have only escalated, with the U.S. government deporting nearly 14,000 Haitian migrants since September 2021, totaling more than 17,000 Haitian migrants deported to Haiti since the beginning of the Biden Administration: and WHEREAS, On Thursday, February 3, 2022, during Black History Month, the Biden Administration chose to extend its practices of deportation under Title 42, despite widespread opposition from human rights groups, public health officials, elected offi cials, and asylum advocates; and WHEREAS Migrants are forced to return to a Haiti rife with political, social, and economic instability and are often at a greater risk of kidnappings, abuse, and violence.

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, March 18, 2022 Page 9 Text of Malden City Council resolution condemning the abusive practice of child marriage in Mass. R Thousands of Haitian migrants are among the many seeking asylum in the United States across the Mexican border, but are being blocked by Title 42 regulations. esolve: That we the Malden City Council strongly condemn the abusive practice of child marriage in Massachusetts. Further, that we indicate our support for state-level legislation currently under consideration to ban legal marriage in Massachusetts, for the protection of human rights, dignity, and opportunity for all young people, especially young women who are disproportionately impacted by child marriage laws. WHEREAS forced child marriage constitutes a violation of a minor child’s rights and dignity; and WHEREAS the United States Pictured from left to right: Malden City Councillors Chris Simonelli (Ward 7) and Amanda Linehan (Ward 3) both voted in favor of both City Council resolutions passed on Tuesday – condemning child marriage in Massachusetts and supporting Haitians’ U.S. asylum application rights. the resolution during the public comment segment of the City Council meeting. “Each of you have pledged to protect children in the course of your responsibilities as City Councillors,” said Luong, herself a candidate for City Council in November’s election. “In the past year a 12-year-old and a 13-year-old girl have been married to older men and in Massachusetts alone 55 girls age 15 or younger were married to older men.” Luong asked the councillors to support the resolve on Tuesday’s docket and for them and their ward and citywide constituents to contact State Representatives Steven Ultrino (D-Malden), Paul Donato (D-Malden, Medford) and Kate Lipper-Garabedian D-Malden, Melrose, Wakefi eld) as well as State Senator Jason Lewis (D-5th Middlesex) to express their condemnation of the child marriage practice. Zonta International active against child marriage worldwide since 2014 Zonta International, to which the Zonta Club of Malden belongs, has supported ending child marriage since 2014, contributing $2 million to delay early marriage in Niger from 20142018. From 2018-2020, Zonta contributed 2 million to the UNFPA-UNICEF Global Program to End Child Marriage – the fi rst private-sector donor to the Global Program. “It’s amazing this [child marriage] is still happening. This would have been inappropriate 100 years ago – let alone today,” Ward 6 Councillor Stephen Winslow said. “To have young girls 12 or 13 being forced into marriage is simply abuse.” Before the unanimous vote was taken in favor of the resolution, the other six councillors, in addition to the original sponsors – Councillors Linehan, Winslow, Colón Hayes (at-Large) and Ryan O’Malley (Ward 4) – all signed on as cosponsors. McDonald: movement to rescind Title 42 growing regionally, nationally Councillor McDonald said the resolution he cosponsored with Councillor Colón Hayes – calling for the ceasing of federal deportations of Haitians at the U.S.-Mexico border by denying application for asylum – is “a big issue with the Haitian community [in Malden].” According to the last U.S. Census in 2020, of Malden’s total population of 66,352, approximately 9,350 residents are Black (14.1%) and over 30% (over 3,000) are of Haitian descent. Councillor McDonald said there is a growing movement both regionally and statewide to get behind a push toward the administration of President Joe Biden to rescind the Title 42 regulation, which originated under former President Donald Trump, which denies Haitians at the Mexico and Texas border the opportunity to seek/apply for asylum in the United States. Title 42 expulsions are removals by the U.S. government of persons who have recently been in a country where a communicable disease was present. The extent of authority for contaDepartment of State recognizes marriage under 18 to be a human rights abuse; and WHEREAS current Massachusetts law includes a loophole allowing marriage under age 18 and with no minimum age, region-related expulsions is set out by law in 42 U.S.C. § 265. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the Trump Administration used this provision (section 265) to generally block land entry for many migrants, particularly a sulting in more than 1,200 children as young as 13 married in the Commonwealth between 2000 and 2018 – 83% of them to adult men; and WHEREAS child marriage increases the risk of domestic violence and poverty, and undermines a child’s access to healthcare, education, and opportunity; and WHEREAS minors who are married cannot obtain abuse prevention orders, seek help from DCF or domestic violence shelters, enter into a legal contract or retain an attorney, or even fi le for their own divorce or annulment; and WHEREAS child marriage petitions have continued throughout the pandemic, and Massachusetts has no residency requirement for out-of-state petitioners, resulting in our status as a ‘destination’ for those seeking child marriages. large number of Haitians seeking asylum/entry to the United States. The program has been continued by the Biden Administration. Two other Councillors, Paul Condon (Ward 2) and Craig NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED THAT THE MALDEN CITY COUNCIL: 1. Condemns the abusive practice of child marriage in Massachusetts. 2. Stands with women’s right organizations, including Zonta International, and elected leaders across the country, including our own local legislative delegation, who are working to end the harmful and archaic practice of child marriage; 3. Supports statewide legislation that would ban child marriage and affirm a legal marriage age of 18 with no loopholes. Sponsors: Amanda Linehan, Stephen Winslow, Karen Colón Hayes and Ryan O’Malley NOTE: Before the vote was taken, ALL City Councilors in attendance joined as cosponsors, so ALL 11 Councillors now are sponsors of this resolution. Spadafora (City Council President, at-Large), spoke against the resolution. Three Councillors, aside from McDonald, spoke in favor of it. RESOLUTIONS | SEE PAGE 21 Banking with a hometown touch.

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, March 18, 2022 Page 11 Stop the Stigma Day a huge success Special to The Advocate O n Wednesday, March 9, 2022, Malden Overcoming Addiction (MOA) held their annual Stop the Stigma Day, which originated in 2016. A new organization at the time, MOA, under the guidance of President Paul Hammersley started the awareness day with the goal of putting an end to the stigma surrounding substance use disorders. This year MOA brought the “Stop the Stigma Day” into all the Malden Public Schools and the local private schools, Cheverus and Malden Catholic. In some schools students made posters and signs supporting the elimination of stigma. All the schools made time for guest speaker Dana Brown, who asked all students and staff for their support in ending the stigma attached to addiction. Students and staff across the schools wore blue ribbons provided by MOA. Using social media as a platform, community activists, first responders, citizens and nonprofit groups across Malden promoted the day with the hashtag #Maldenstopthestigma. Many posted pictures showed the blue ribbons they wore to support the cause. MOA is a community partner whose mission is to connect the community with addiction support and recovery services, remove the stigma of addiction and fight to eliminate overdose fatalities in Malden and surrounding communities. The annual MOA “Stop the Stigma Day” is about “leveraging the collective power of Malden’s community to bring attention to the stigma surrounding addiction.” The stigma associated with drug addiction prevents many from seeking the help, whether emotionally or physically, that they require. Students at the Cheverus School supported Stop the Stigma Day. Linden School students created Stop the Stigma paperwork and ribbons. Dana Brown picked one of the students to speak on Stop the Stigma Day at the Cheverus School. Students at the Ferryway School supported Stop the Stigma Day. Malden Overcoming Addiction (MOA) President Paul Hammersley along with MOA board members Mindy Tam, PJ Bell and Dana Brown are shown during the annual Malden Stop the Stigma Day on March 9.

The new center would provide an alternative to arrest or emergency room transport for individuals in need of behavioral health services. Through a no wrong door policy, both walk-in services as well as police drop-off would be available at the center. “Once established, the Middlesex County Restoration Center will serve as a shining model for what behavioral health crisis services and wrap-around support can look like across the Commonwealth,” said Congresswoman Trahan. “I’m proud to have secured over $1.6 million in federal funding for this critical project — bringing the Center one step closer to becoming reality. I look forward to working with Sheriff Koutoujian, Dr. Mauch and our local partners to get this project across the finish line.” “I fought hard alongside Congresswoman Lori Trahan and Senator Ed Markey for federal funding to establish a crisis diversion facility in Middlesex County, and I'm glad we secured $1.65 million for those efforts,” said Senator Warren. “These funds will be critical to expanding mental health and substance use services for members of our community. I’m grateful for the continued partnership with Sheriff Koutoujian and Dr. Danna Mauch to combat the substance use disorder crisis.” “We do better by Bay Staters when we focus our resources on connecting people in crisis with mental health and substance use services, instead of putting them in the back of a police cruiser,” said Senator Markey. “With this investment, we can bring behaviorial healthcare to the Commonwealth and get people the help that they need in a more supportive setting.” The commission also recently announced it had secured $5 million in ARPA funding through the state legislature funding thanks to the work of State Senator Cindy Friedman (D-Arlington) and State Representative Ken Gordon (D-Bedford). Additionally, Governor Charlie Baker included $1 million in his proposed Fiscal Year 2023 budget for the project. “It is very exciting to see federal money appropriated that will make a direct impact on the Middlesex County community,” said Senator Friedman. “An enormous thank you to our federal delegation and to my colleagues on the Middlesex County Restoration Center Commission for bringing a mix of federal and state funding to the table to help make the Middlesex County Restoration Center a reality.” “I’m deeply grateful to our partners in Congress for prioritizing the Middlesex County Restoration Center,” said Representative Gordon. “This additional funding will be crucial as the Commission continues its work to transform behavioral health services in our communities. The investment underscores the importance of the goal we share with our federal, state, and local partners.” Senior Nutrition Program celebrates 50th anniversary M ystic Valley Elder Services (MVES) is joining the Administration for Community Living and senior nutrition service providers across the country to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the national Senior Nutrition Program. Since 1972 the Senior Nutrition Program has supported nutrition services for older adults. Funded by the Older Americans Act, local senior nutrition programs serve as hubs for older adults (60 and older) to access nutritious meals and other vital services that strengthen social connections and promote health and well-being. “Senior nutrition is now more important than ever,” said MVES Nutrition Services Director Angie Fitzgerald. “Each year in the U.S., up to half of adults age 65 and older are at risk of malnutrition and more than 10 million face hunger.

Medicare will only pay for the motorized lifting mechanism, which is considered durable medical equipment (DME), and is covered under Part B. The other parts of the chair – the frame, cushioning, and upholstery – are not covered. Here are a few more details you should know. What Is a Lift Chair? First, for those who aren’t familiar with them, lift chairs, which look like traditional recliners, have motorized lift mechanisms built in that aid with standing up and sitting down for people with limited mobility. With the push of a button, a lift chair hoists a person from sitting to a position where they can comfortably stand up. It also works in reverse to help a person gently take a sitting position. Medicare Coverage Requirements If you’re a Medicare benefi ciary, to fi nd out if you qualify for coverage, you’ll need to get a prescription and a “Certifi cate of Medical Necessity” from your doctor that indicates your need for a lift chair. The conditions you’ll need to meet include: • That you have severe arthritis of the hip or knee, or a severe neuromuscular disease. • That you can’t stand up on your own from a regular chair. • Once standing, you can walk independently or with the aid of a walker or cane. • That you do not reside within a skilled nursing facility, hospice or nursing home facility. You’ll also need to purchase your lift chair from an equipment supplier that’s enrolled in Medicare. To fi nd and compare Medicare approved suppliers in your area go to Medicare.gov/medical-equipment-suppliers, type in your Zip code and “Seat Lift Mechanisms” in the equipment box. If you do qualify, Medicare will pay 80 percent of the approved cost of the chair’s motorized lifting mechanism, after you’ve met your Part B annual deductible. You, or your Medigap supplemental policy (if you have one), will pay the remaining 20 percent of the lift mechanism. You will also pay 100 percent of the remaining cost of the chair. You should also be aware that if you do buy your lift chair from a Medicare supplier, you will likely pay for the total cost of the chair upfront and can then seek reimbursement from Medicare. Lift chairs can run anywhere from $400 to $2,000 or more depending on the fabric, options and upgrades. The reimbursement is usually between $250 and $300 depending on the state you live in. Advantage Coverage If you happen to get your Medicare benefi ts through a private Medicare Advantage plan, they too provide lift chair coverage, but they may impose diff erent rules and will likely require you to see an in-network supplier. You’ll need to contact your plan directly for details. Other Helpful Options If you fi nd that Medicare won’t cover your lift chair or if you’re looking for something less expensive, there are assistive products you can add to your current furniture like the Stander EZ Stand-N-Go (Stander.com, $140), which has adjustable support handles that can be used on any sofa or recliner to help with sitting down and standing up. Another way to make your furniture more accessible is by increasing its height with “furniture risers.” These typically range from 2 to 5 inches in height and are inserted under the legs of your furniture. Costs range from a few dollars up to $50 or more and can be purchased at retail stores like Walmart and Target, or online at Amazon.com. Send your senior questions to: Savvy Senior, P.O.

The days when they did not hide behind a keyboard. The shameless and cowardly display of faceless machismo that is so ubiquitous on some Malden based social media sites is troubling, to say the least. “This is the end, beautiful friend, this is the end, my only friend, the end.” My father, Soloman Levine, grew up hard on the streets of the West End of Boston, a self-taught man who had street smarts and may have actually written the book on street smarts. Utilizing these street smarts when his three oldest boys came of age, there were two truths that he held close to his heart (truths that I will be forever grateful for): My boys will not play football and they will not go to Vietnam. Thank you, pops, for the courage of foresight and hindsight. My dad wore his Star of David proudly right up until that day last year when he passed on. (Hopefully, his long-awaited and hoped for reunion with his father, Herschel, was realized.) A voracious reader, he had a saying after scanning the obituaries; noticing the passing of yet another lantzman, he’d say to nobody in particular, “We lost another friend today.” With that said, dad, we lost a couple of friends today; rest in peace, David Irving Westerman, 86, of Malden, active member of Agudas Achim–Ezrath Israel in Malden and Congregation Ahavas Sholom in Saugus, and Arnold Green, 92, of Peabody. Arnold was married for 69 years to Barbara. Postscript 1: Congratulations to me!

Page 20 THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, March 18, 2022 Pandemic waning but not over By Christopher Roberson D espite growing vaccination rates, which have allowed mask mandates to be rolled back, the fact remains that COVID-19 is still out there. “The number of cases per day is still in the hundreds,” said Dr. Robert Klugman of UMass Memorial Hospital. “We are not yet fully out of the woods. The BA.2 variant is on the march and may cause a signifi cant bump in cases.” Klugman also said 54 percent of the state’s 7.1 million residents have received booster shots and that 5.4 million residents are fully vaccinated. Nationally, he said, the vaccination rate is nearly 90 percent. However, the vaccines have proven to be more eff ective in terms of controlling the severity of the virus rather than preventing it. In addition, Klugman called attention to the global population. “If we look at the outbreak in China and other poorly vaccinated countries, we know there will continue to be outbreaks and also new variants to contend with,” he said. With masking and social distancing becoming more relaxed, Klugman said, the chances of contracting COVID-19 will now be determined by a person’s level of exposure. “Outdoors is generally safe.

Those at increased risk of hospitalization, whether boosted or not, should continue to be more cautious. Omicron and its cousin BA.2 are highly contagious.” Looking back to March 2020, Klugman said there was almost nothing that could have been done to prevent the onset of COVID-19. “The U.S. had dismantled most of its epidemiologic and pandemic resources. Battling a pandemic is not each country for itself, but requires a global eff ort,” he said. “Pandemics are marathons, not sprints, and governments need to plan for the long haul.” Dr. Brian Chow, director of the Infectious Diseases Fellowship Program at Tufts Medical Center, said the pandemic will not be over until worldwide immunity is achieved. “While cases in PROMPOSAL DAY | FROM PAGE 5 MHS Prom planned for May 27 at Boston Park Plaza The Senior Class leaders are planning on hosting an exciting, traditional social highlight of their high school years at the venerable Boston Park Plaza Hotel ballroom on Friday, May 27. However, a potential roadblock constructed of dollar signs seriously threatened plans for this most magical of nights. For practical and safety reasons, it has been determined that all prom-going students must be transported by privately hired buses on the 9.1-mile trip from Malden High School to the prom site at Boston Park Plaza. The night’s agenda is that prom-goers participate in the pre-prom “Red Carpet” highlight at Malden High at 4:30 p.m., then travel to the prom venue for photos, dinner and dancing beginning at 7:00 p.m. The cost of that transportation item quickly arose as a bona fi de “budget-buster” for the evening’s events. According to Principal Mastrangelo, the estimate was in the neighborhood of $5,000. Mastrangelo told The Advocate this fi gure would have made the cost of prom tickets for the MHS couples soar astronomically, most likely putting REAL ESTATE TRANSACTIONS BUYER1 Casey, James M Pereira, Rui Hernandez, Cynthia BUYER2 Pereira, Luis SELLER1 SELLER2 Beantown Realty Group LLC Melillo, Conce� a Humanity Greater Boston Massachusetts are falling, cases are rising elsewhere in the world,” he said. “As long as there are new infections, there is the possibility of new strains emerging and spreading.” Chow also refl ected on what he and his colleagues have learned during the past two years. “We now have precedent for rapidly developing vaccines using the mRNA platform and the ability to create PCR [polymerase chain reaction] tests,” he said. “It’s certainly possible to respond faster to these situations with the technology we have now.” However, Chow said burnout rates have hit record high levels among healthcare workers. “First and foremost, we are constantly reminded that the healthcare system runs on people,” he said. “These people do not have infi nite capacity to take on more work.” In addition, Chow said pandemic prevention will be a challenging endeavor. “Bringing a local epidemic under control and preventing it from becoming a pandemic depends on early detection,” he said. “It’s much harder to do these when it’s a completely new infectious disease and we don’t have treatments we know to be eff ective.” Dr. Sabrina Assoumou, an infectious diseases physician at Boston Medical Center, said Massachusetts continues to move “in the right direction.” However, the same cannot be said for countries overseas. “If we’ve learned one lesson about this pandemic, it’s that we’re all connected,” she said. Assoumou also spoke about the importance of having proactive leadership. “Leadership matters; it’s so important when you’re dealing with a pandemic,” she said. “You can lose control very quickly.” MHS Principal Chris Mastrangelo described the rough road the Senior Class of 2022 has ridden in terms of fundraising during the past two years of COVID-19. the price out of reach for some. Mayor Christenson soon learned of this money problem and mentioned it during his regular directors’ meeting late last week. Mayor: ‘One phone call... and the issue was solved’ “It took one phone call,” the Mayor told The Advocate Tuesday, “and the issue was solved.” Malden Facilities Director Eric Rubin contacted Town Line Luxury Lanes/Mixx360 Nightlife of Malden owner Anthony DeCotis and told him about the shortfall in the Senior Class of 2022’s budget. DeCotis immediately agreed to donate the generous sum of $5,000 to cover the cost of the prom buses. MHS Prom Night was absolutely a go! “Once again, Anthony DeCotis stepped up to help some Malden citizens in need,” Mayor Christenson told a group of Malden High students and Malden Public Schools administrators who met with the Town Line Luxury Lanes owner in the Mayor’s Offi ce on Tuesday afternoon. “That is the type of business owner we have here in the city of Malden.” On hand for the gathering Tuesday, along with Mayor Christenson, Facilities Director Rubin and DeCotis, were Malden Superintendent of Schools Dr. Ligia Noriega-Murphy, Principal Mastrangelo, Class of 2022 Advisor Dan Jurkowski, Senior Class Offi cers and other members of the prom planning committee. “We are so grateful to Mr. DeCotis for his generosity is PROMPOSAL DAY| SEE PAGE 21 Copyrighted material previously published in Banker & Tradesman/The Commercial Record, a weekly trade newspaper.

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, March 18, 2022 Page 21 RESOLUTIONS | FROM PAGE 9 “Isn’t this a federal issue?” asked Councillor Condon. “We’re the Malden City Council. Where does this go if we vote for this? What would this solve?” Councillor McDonald responded, “Alone? This would aff ect nothing at all. We want to send this to our federal lawmakers (Congresswoman Katherine Clark, U.S. Senators Ed Markey and Elizabeth Warren) as part of an aligned strategy.” Condon: ‘I’m not in favor of open borders’ “I understand it’s a problem, but we shouldn’t be allowing anyone into the country who is not prepared to go on a direct route for citizenship. Everyone should be vetted,” Councillor Condon said. “Some of those people who are trying to cross the borders in Mexico, I hope they aren’t allowed in this country,” Councillor Condon added. “I’m not in favor of open borders and I’m not in favor of accepting everyone into this country. That’s why you vet people.” Ward 6 Councillor Stephen Winslow diff ered. “We should remove this unnecessary barrier for allowing Haitians into this country,” he said. “Here in Malden we welcomed thousands of Haitians into our city and our schools after the [2010] Haitian earthquake. “Here in Malden, the Haitian people who have come here have been a wonderful addition to our population,” Councillor Winslow said. “There is a really powerful case being made from the Haitian community aff ected to support this,” said Councillor Linehan. “There has been a misapplication of public health data. They can’t make the case this [denying asylum applications] is tied to the pandemic anymore.” O’Malley: ‘They’re not asking for special treatment’ “These people aren’t asking for special treatment,” Councillor O’Malley said, in support of the resolution. “All they’re asking for is a return to U.S. and international law as it was applied before the pandemic.” Ward 7 Councillor Chris Simonelli asked if the Malden-based resolution could be amended to include all people seeking asylum, not just Haitians. Councillor McDonald agreed to do so. City Council President Spadafora said he was not in favor of the resolution because “We’re not out of COVID yet. Basically, this resolution is having us tell the federal government, ‘We don’t believe your [public health] data.” “I believe in asylum... but I believe in scientifi c data and I believe in public health. I am not against people from Haiti – or a lot of other places around the world – trying to enter the country, but I do not support going against a federal law designed to protect public health,” Councillor Spadafora added. The resolution passed, 8-2, with Councillors McDonald, Linehan, Winslow and O’Malley joined by Councillors Peg Crowe (Ward 1), Barbara Murphy (Ward 5), Simonelli and Jadeane Sica (Ward 8) voting in favor, with Condon and Spadafora voting against. PROMPOSAL DAY | FROM PAGE 20 helping make these kids’ dream come true, of having a wonderful Prom in a fantastic venue,” Mastrangelo told all in attendance on Tuesday. “These members of the Senior Class have gone through so much and missed a lot during the COVID-19 pandemic of the past two years.” Fundraising for Senior Class of 2022 took a big hit during COVID-19 pandemic Mastrangelo noted that the continuous fundraising eff orts of the Class of 2022 – nearly all of which are geared toward lowering the cost of the Senior Prom – “really took a big hit during the pandemic, since there was such a lack of opportunities for so long of a time for holding any live fundraising events.” Mastrangelo also noted a compelling point regarding the Senior Class of 2022: They are the only Class at Malden High that has gone a full year of in-person learning, due to the changes to remote learning during the pandemic, as it was during their freshman year, 2018-19. “We really had to struggle to raise every dollar possible, but these students learned a lot about life – and how to deal with adversity,” Class Advisor Dan Jurkowski said Tuesday. Several of the students on hand, including Class Officer Sami Nie and Tony Giech, thanked DeCotis for his generous donation: a $5,000 check he presented at Tuesday’s gathering. For his part, the Town Line Luxury Lanes owner said he was happy to help the Malden High seniors with their prom costs, considering what they have gone through during the pandemic. “I have three children myself and have seen fi rsthand what you all have gone through with remote learning, in school some time and out of school other times,” DeCotis told the MHS students and personnel who gathered on Tuesday. He also noted that times had been tough as a business owner, like so many others locally and around the world, with shutdowns and other obstacles for the past two years. “We have all gone through so much, but we have to be ready to help each other,” said DeCotis, who has become well-known locally for his generous support of individuals and groups for many years through his business, which is located at 665 Broadway (Route 99) in Malden. “I am happy that you will be able to have a special night for the Prom in May,” he told the students. “You all deserve to make those memories you’ll never forget.” For Rent Everett 3 Bdr. - 1st Floor Nice Hardwood Flooring We follow Social Distancing Guidelines!
