Beginning Monday, residents will begin receiving one blue recycling cart and one black trash cart per residential unit in homes that are six units or fewer. The Malden Advocate has asked City of Malden Communications Director Ron Cochran what residents can expect as of Monday. When do I get my cart? Distribution of carts will be spread out over about one month. The City of Malden is asking for residents’ patience during this rollout as it is quite a logistical feat to get all these carts on the ground and to the correct places. The rule of thumb to note is that once your entire street has carts on both sides of the street delivery is complete for that street. Once you receive your carts, you should start using them on your next collection day. If your entire street has carts and by chance you have not received yours, you can contact the City’s dedicated hotline (mentioned below) to report it. Who do I call if I have any questions or issues? The City has set up a Pay-AsYou-Throw (PAYT) Hotline which can be reached during City Hall business hours by calling 781605-5100.

Everett has slipped back into the red category with a positivity rate of 5.3 percent. Saugus is also in the red category with a positivity rate of 6.1 percent. Malden and Revere are in the yellow category with positivity rates of 3.9 and 3.8 percent, respectively. “Variants are contributing to the increase in cases in Massachusetts,” said Dr. Lou Ann Bruno-Murtha, division chief of infectious diseases at Cambridge Health Alliance. “The more infectious B.1.1.7 variant (UK variant) is increasingly being identifi ed in Massachusetts and the P1 variant (Brazilian variant) is also beginning to increase.” On April 4, renowned epidemiologist Dr. Michael Osterholm made a bold prediction on NBC’s Meet the Press. “Let me say that, at this time, we really are in a category fi ve hurricane status,” he said. “At this point, we will see the highest number of cases reported globally since the beginning of the pandemic. We’re just at the beginning of this surge; we haven’t even really begun to see it yet.” Despite her deep respect for Osterholm, Bruno-Murtha said she is “more optimistic for Massachusetts.” “We have maintained a state mask mandate and our vaccination program has been increasingly effi cient,” she said. “As of April 5, 38 percent of residents have received at least one vaccine.” She also said that time is of the essence regarding the ongoing rollout of the vaccines. “The quicker we administer vaccines, the sooner we will have the upper hand on this pandemic,” said Bruno-Murtha. “I remain hopeful we will not experience another surge in Massachusetts.” Dr. Brian Chow, an attending physician at Tufts Medical Center, said there are approximately 700 cases of the UK variant in Massachusetts. He said the Brazilian variant also gained a foothold following the recent outbreak on Cape Cod. “We are all very concerned about the trajectory of the number of cases, particularly in Massachusetts,” said Chow. “Whether the next surge arrives will depend on our actions today.

COM Member FDIC Member DIF the fi nal phase of the Reopening Plan, Chow agreed with Bruno-Murtha that vaccinations must continue without delay. “We are in a race against time to get vaccines into arms,” he said. “It takes at least 14 days after the fi nal dose of vaccine to be protected. For Pfi zer or Moderna, that could be as long as fi ve to seven weeks after the fi rst dose.” Dr. Stephen Kissler of the RIGHT BY YOU Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health said that while the variants pose a significant threat, another shutdown should not be necessary. He said that during the past year healthcare professionals have learned an incredible amount of information pertaining to the spread of COVID-19. For example, he said the probability of contracting the virus by going to the grocery store is fairly minimal, particularly when everyone is wearing a mask. In contrast, Kissler said indoor dining creates a much greater risk. “That’s the real concern that I have,” he said. Kissler also said there will likely be a short-term surge from those who went away for Easter or Passover. “I think we will probably see some surge,” he said. Dr. Benjamin Linas, an associate professor at the Boston University School of Medicine, said relaxing restrictions all but guarantees that the number of cases will escalate. “It is just a fact of life, like gravity,” he said. “Until we reach full herd immunity, this is just a law of nature.” Although Linas agreed with Osterholm about the possibility of a fourth surge, he continues to have a great deal of confi dence in the vaccines. “We are in a truly novel position; we have never seen the epidemiology of COVID in the context of widespread vaccination,” he said. “It is defi nitely possible that we are in the fi rst days of a surge, but it is also possible that the surge is ultimately truncated by successful vaccination eff orts.” However, Linas said there is also the risk of variants developing that are immune to the vaccines. “That is possible, the best way to prevent that from happening is to end this before it happens, which means wearing masks and distancing while we vaccinate as fast as humans have ever vaccinated an entire population,” he said. However, Linas stressed that the uptick in cases is not the result of schools reopening. “Schools are too essential to loosely blame for epidemiology that has many other clear explanations,” he said. “Our goal should be to keep schools open, even with another surge, unless it becomes very clear that there is a great deal of inschool transmission occurring.” In addition, Linas said the reopening process has been moving too fast. “We are too quick to reopen indoor dining and to allow fans back at sporting events. I know that no one wants to hear this, but no one wants a fourth surge without acknowledging the laws of nature,” he said. “I am sensitive to the need for economic recovery and identify strongly with small business owners who are facing existential fi nancial threats. But we are so close. I really think that with a concerted eff ort to limit our interactions and double down on masks and distance, combined with ongoing vaccination eff orts, we could be at herd immunity by the end of the summer. We can see the fi nish line; now is the time to dig deep and begin the hard sprint to the end.” Prices subject to change Spring is around the Corner! FLEET

It was a great illustration of community partners working together for the betterment of our seniors. Maldonian speaks about experience with Doc Wayne Youth Services By Tara Vocino B eth Caronna of Malden is using exercise to cope with mental health struggles. Caronna began as a client at Doc Wayne Youth Services then became an intern while attending Lesley University. She is now on staff as Champions Network Facilitator. In that role, she delivers training sessions for coaches, clinicians and educators across the country who want to learn more about the Doc Wayne model of trauma-informed care and sport-based therapy. Doc Wayne helps at-risk youths with mental health, trauma and/or domestic/ community violence challenges through fusing sport and therapy. She shares some advice for teenagers dealing with these struggles. “I would constantly tell myself when I was younger, and even now, that ‘everything happens for a reason,’” Caronna said. “With this mantra, I hope for people to invest in themselves, to ask for help and to try and make connections with their coaches, mental health care providers, or whoever they see as a good support system.” It wasn’t an easy road. Caronna said she had a hard time doing this at fi rst, but as she came full circle, she realized that some of her best allies and supporters have been coaches and mental health workers. She has struggled with anxiety throughout her entire life. “This is something that I am still working at,” Caronna said. “Some of my anxiety stems from my trauma; when I was young a close family member/caregiver suddenly passed away, which caused a ripple eff ect throughBeth Caronna, of Malden, was recently hired as a Champions Network Facilitator at Doc Wayne Youth Services after interning and attending there.

At that time, multiple diff erent JRI residential schools and Doc Wayne staff worked together to meet weekly to check in, participate in sports and work on skills. Throughout these weekly meetings, Doc Wayne worked with the students by using their sportsbased group therapy model. “I look back at this time as a pivotal point in my care and mental health plan; to be able to recognize sport as a therapy and a coping skill has continued to help me throughout my adult life,” Caronna said, noting that Doc Wayne is now a separate nonprofi t organization. In addition to her work at Doc Wayne, Caronna is a public speaker on mental health, perseverance and the remarkable benefi ts of sports-based therapy. A sports enthusiast, she runs marathons and climbs mountains in New Hampshire. USA Spring Cleanouts Lawn and Yard Care It’s Time For * Cutting, Weeding * Mulching, Trimming * Bushes, Shrubs and More!

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, April 9, 2021 Page 7 RESCUE | FROM PAGE 1 family’s belongings at midday on Saturday, March 27. After living in the Newland Street housing complex all of his life, he and his family were moving to a new residence on Beachview Avenue. Nice Jr. and his friend Guy Galloway were loading items into a truck when his neighbor ran by him in the direction of her Newland Street unit, two courtyards away. “My house is on fire!” she yelled as she ran past them. Nice Jr. said he and his buddy literally dropped what they were doing and ran after the woman. “When I got to the courtyard, all I could see was billows of dark smoke and some flames in the back,” he said. “I had assumed it was a kitchen fire with a pot on the stove or something. I didn’t expect what I saw.” What happened next is what comes natural to most courageous people. “A Malden police officer was going in the door and me and Guy went right in, too,” said Nice Jr. “I knew [the Daltons] had kids living in the unit and we had to make sure they were out.” The first officer at the scene of the 172 Newland St. fire, Ptl. Dan Sylva, along with Nice Jr. and Galloway, got the Dalton children, ages eight, nine and 11, out of the apartment. A fourth, older teen, was discovered in the shower and was quickly evacuated with just a towel partially covering him, with no time to grab clothes due to the heavy smoke and the quickly growing flames. “The smoke was pretty bad. It was not easy to breathe,” Nice Jr. recalled, “plus the flames were right there, too. We had to get everyone out of there.” From both living in the Newland Street complex all of his life and also working in the units, Nice said, one of his first thoughts was to get to the unit first and open it with his master key so the fire department did not have to break down the door. en Tornados at his former high school as well as in the Malden Babe Ruth League for the Pilots. He is well-known around the community, having also coached in the Malden Pop Warner Football organization. As for the displaced Dalton family, a donation fund was started for them at the Salemwood K-8 School, where at least two of the children are believed to be students. Coincidentally, Nice Jr., one of their rescuers, also attended the Salemwood from Grade 1 to Grade 8 before moving on to Malden High School. Nice, Jr. said he is happy no one got hurt, and also that he was able to help. “We did not have time to think about it, we just had to get in there and get them out.” A fire in this unit at 172 Newland St. left a Malden family homeless and three other families temporarily displaced. (Steve Freker Photo) Used the master key to warn other residents Once he, his friend and the police had cleared the first apartment, Nice Jr. said, he used his Housing Authority–issued master to open a second and third unit door in the units next to the apartment that was ablaze, and shouted to the those occupants to “get outside,” not knowing if or when the fire was going to spread. All of this evacuation was done in minutes, just before the arrival of Malden Fire apparatus. “When we arrived we saw heavy smoke and some flames from the back windows,” said MFD Deputy Chief Steve Froio, who led operations at the scene. He said Engine 2 was on scene and that firefighters used 2 1/2inch hose with water to put out the flames. Deputy Chief Froio said a ladder company vented the roof after the fire was out and overhaul operations followed. He added that an eighthour fire watch was conducted as the Malden Fire Investigation Unit did its work. The fire was later deemed caused by an electrical problem. According to a source, a tipped over candle may have started the fire, with spread to electrical wires, leading to the determination of cause.

The Deputy Chief said the injured firefighter was sent home for the day. Nice Jr. said his friend became ill and was vomiting soon after the incident and went to a nearby hospital to be treated for what is believed to have been smoke inhalation as a result of his rescue mission. An estimated 12 residents were displaced Deputy Chief Froio said four units were evacuated in total and estimated approximately 12 or more residents were displaced in total. Residents of the other units at 172 Newland St. have since returned to their homes. He noted that he was not aware of the actions of Nice Jr., Galloway and Ptl. Sylva before the firefighters’ arrival, as the unit that was on fire was empty when they got there. As an aside, at the same time the fire was racing through the Newland Street apartment other Malden Fire and Malden Police had been dispatched to 166 Salem St., where a concrete parapet had collapsed and fallen to the sidewalk below.

Page 8 THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, April 9, 2021 BUILDING | FROM PAGE 1 den Planning Board at its December meeting in a 9-0 vote. City Planner Michelle Romero was in attendance at Tuesday’s meeting and delivered the official decision. The reason for the denial, Romero reported, was that the Board determined the project was “not in the interest of the public good” due to the size: nine stories. The special permit was required since the limit on downtown construction is six stories, by ordinance. Romero stayed in attendance for the entirety of the meeting and ultimately was a key contributor to the final City Council decision as she was able to assist the individual Councillors, and the body as a collective unit. Her knowledge was evident and invaluable as they navigated through a myriad set of 13 specific conditions that were attached to the special permit. Despite the reservations expressed by the Planning Board on the size and height of the new building – which will be sited at 11 and 17 Dartmouth St., at the corner of Dartmouth and Pleasant Street – nine stories in height and 187,000 square feet in total, nearly all of the Councillors who spoke in favor of the project at Tuesday’s hearing said they are in strong support. The height restriction is the only reason the matter was before the City Council, since the use, as office space, is already compliant with the zoning in that downtown district. Letters were read in support of the new office building from Mayor Gary Christenson, Malden Redevelopment Authority (MRA) Executive Director Deborah Burke, Malden Chamber of Commerce President Donna Denoncourt and others. Letters in favor of the project also came from a number of abutters, including Stephen Pompeo, whose real estate holdings include the entire store block across Dartmouth Street, and fronting on Pleasant Street, down to the Department of Education building. Pompeo stressed the value of the project in increasing pedestrian traffic and potential of increased patronage of his tenants’ businesses, such as Hugh O’Neill’s restaurant, Sunrise Postal and various personal professional service storefronts. Pompeo just requested that “great care” be paid to construction plans, including before and after, to minimize disruption to the business of his tenants as it continues. Before construction begins, the existing four-story building at 11 Dartmouth St. will be demolished. As part of the conditions, the land lots at 11 and 17 Dartmouth St. will be merged. The 17 Dartmouth St. lot is primarily vacant at this time. Councillor-at-Large Debbie DeMaria spoke in favor of the proposal during the public comment portion of the public hearing. “We need commercial development in the downtown. We’re constantly talking about it as Councillors,” she said. “I know the Planning Board balked at the size, but this is a mid-rise, not a high-rise. This building has already seen a great loss of value over the years. We need this ~ Legal Notice ~ MALDEN PUBLIC SCHOOLS Notice of Upcoming Tiered Focused Monitoring Review During the week of April 12th, the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education’s (DESE’s) Office of Language Acquisition will conduct a Tiered Focused Monitoring Review of Malden Public Schools. The Office of Language Acquisition reviews each district’s and charter school’s ELE program every six years to monitor compliance with federal and state English learner education laws and regulations. Areas of review will include English learners’ student assessments, identification of English learners; what programs English learners are placed in, parent and community involvement, curriculum and instruction, student support services, licensure requirements for faculty, staff and administration, program plans, and evaluation and recordkeeping. In addition to the onsite visit, parent outreach is an important part of the review process. The review chairperson from the Office of Language Acquisition will send a survey to the parents of students whose records the review team examines. The survey focuses on key areas of their child’s English learner education program. Survey results will contribute to the monitoring report. Parents and other individuals may call Andy McDonie, Office of Language Acquisition Review Chairperson, at (781) 338- 3541 to request a telephone interview. If an individual requires an accommodation, such as translation, to participate in an interview, DESE will make the necessary arrangements. Within approximately 60 business days of the onsite visit, the review chairperson will provide the Malden Public Schools with a report with information about areas in which the district meets or exceeds regulatory requirements and areas in which the district requires assistance to correct or improve practices. The report will be available to the public at https://www.doe.mass.edu/ele/cpr/. April 9, 2021 project.” Later she said, “It’s fabulous a developer wants to come to our Malden and invest $90 million and use union labor for a project like this.” Senior Vice President Sandi Silk of J Malden Center Apartments, which anchors the west end of the now open-tothrough-traffic Pleasant Street, also supported the project. “This will go a long way toward the transition of Malden Center,” Silk said. “The increase in daytime population is critical to the vitality of the downtown area. We need a diverse mix of employers, employees, residents and consumers in Malden Center. This is a major step toward that goal.” Ward 6 Councillor David Camell got right to the point, referencing the 400-plus jobs the new office building is projected to bring to Malden Square. “Every one of those jobs is a potential customer of downtown businesses.” Camell went on to assure his colleagues he is certain demand for office space is increasing, not declining due to the workfrom-home mode imposed by the COVID-19 stay-at-home order, relating the situation to his personal work situation. “Businesses will be coming to Malden when this space opens. We need this project to diversify our tax base. We have been talking about this for years and years as jobs have plummeted in Malden. It would be absurd to turn this down.” Ward 4 Councillor Ryan O’Malley, who represents the downtown district in his ward, was also pointed in his assessment. “If we turned this down, how The existing building at 11 Dartmouth St. is shown. could any other developer step foot in Malden?” “I am fully in support of this proposal as long as we support union labor in the construction phase,” Councillor O’Malley said, later authoring a separate condition to the special permit regarding union labor, which was backed by Councillors DeMaria, Ward 5’s Barbara Murphy, Councillor-at-Large Craig Spadafora, Ward 3’s Amanda Linehan, Ward 8’s Jadeane Sica, Ward 1’s Peg Crowe, City Council President Neal Anderson (Ward 7), Ward 2’s Paul Condon, Councillor-at-Large Steve Winslow and Ward 6’s Camell. After guidance from City Solicitor Katherine Fallon, O’Malley’s motion for the condition was requesting Quaker Lane Capital to use as much union labor as possible, preferably local Malden union members, in the project. Quaker Lane Capital Principal Carlos Febres-Mazzei agreed to support this and the other 12 conditions imposed. “This is a great opportunity to bring a high-grade office building to Malden. We talk about how we want to be like Assembly Square [in Somerville], like the Seaport District [in Boston]. Why can’t we do it in Malden?” O’Malley said. “Well, here’s how we can.” “The opportunity is here and we have make sure we seize it,” Winslow said. “Restaurants will thrive in the downtown. This proposal fits well with Malden and is not out of scale. It will be a great opportunity to bring union jobs to Malden where, hopefully, our residents will be able to work locally.” “This is an amazing opportunity for the city, offering tax revenue increases and plenty of other amenities for our city,” Councillor Linehan said. “They’ve [Quaker) adjusted the height of the building [down to nine stories instead of 12], and we’ve still managed not to lose the project despite a lot of requests. “We’ll find 10-15 years from now this will be one of the projects that helped put Malden on the map. This will be a huge asset to the Square.” “I was at the Planning Board meeting and understood their concerns,” Councillor Spadafora said. “But situations change, money and business concerns change and I am convinced we should do the right thing for our city and put a stake in the ground with this project. It’s the right time for this project.” “I think this will be a big shot in the arm for our community,” Councillor Condon said. “It’s jobs, jobs, jobs. I’m impressed with the developer. They made a huge investment in parking [$4.5 million, 145 guaranteed spots] when they were not required by ordinance. Our tax base is out of whack – we need it to change. Malden Square is dead at times during the day; this is a way to change that.” Councillor Murphy questioned going against the Planning Board decision: “They do this every month and this is what they are charged to do. But this project has many benefits, primarily job creation.” Councillor Crowe said she is impressed at how the developer wanted to “be a part of the community.” “Jobs for our community and an increase in our commercial tax base are essential,” she said.

I bet you would want to know more, right? I would. Councillors Winslow and Malden Fire Department Ladder Co. 3 was fi rst established in 1929. The company’s second truck was a 1942 Seagrave.

(Courtesy Photos/Malden Fire Department) Immigrant heroes of COVID-19 crisis honored T hree Massachusetts residents were honored on April 6 during the Immigrant Heroes Award Benefi t at The Immigrant Learning Center in Malden. The event paid tribute to the tremendous achievements of three honorees and to the 1.2 million immigrant essential workers in Massachusetts without whom the COVID-19 pandemic would have been much worse. Honorees Abdulkader O’Malley are collaborating with the MBTA & MassDot to secure a million dollars’ worth of grants to do just that. They listened to the residents, looked at data, and found a way to not only help reduce traffi c, but to increase bus service, and make our streets safer for everyone. The grants would help us make these much-needed improvements, and it could open the door to future funding. Keeping an eye out for ways to leverage past investments and make sure we don’t miss out on future funding opportunities is exactly what a municipal grant writer could do, and hiring and funding such a position is something I will work to implement when I am elected. For years residents have said that our infrastructure needs to be updated. Every day, someone laments about traffi c, roads, safety, and yet when faced with an opportunity to update our roads in an equitable way, many of our current councillors are either hesitant or indiff erent to a solution that works for more than just drivers. This project would take just two weeks Hayani, Monique Nguyen and Niall Lennon were given their awards at a socially distanced ceremony that was held at the Royal Sonesta Boston hotel in Cambridge and broadcast online to a nationwide audience. “You have stepped up during the COVID-19 pandemic and done the critical but often very difficult work that had to be IMMIGRANT | SEE PAGE 18 to construct, all done during overnights to minimize disruption for residents. These grants would increase safety for all users and off er choices in transportation by reducing barriers and increasing reliability. On Tuesday, April 6, the City Council heard from MBTA representative Eric Burkman, who explained that having dedicated lanes gives drivers, bikers, and bus riders more comfortable commuting. This is truly a solution that will work for all of us. Our city has an opportunity to foster equity and to create more symbiotic transportation systems, and we cannot let inaction lead to more missed opportunities. It’s time to speak up and make your voice heard! On April 13, 2021 the Malden City Council will vote on the plan, and decide whether to accept the funds. First, e-mail your councillor and submit public testimony with your name and address to the city clerk (glucey@ cityofmalden.org) no later than 1 PM on Tuesday April 13. Next, ask that your councillors vote to accept the grants and that your message be a matter of public record of the public hearing. If possible, attend the public hearing on Zoom, and talk about why it’s important that we allow space for ALL commuters in the city. Whether you are walking or on wheels, we need to make sure there’s safe and reliable transportation for all of us.

Page 10 THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, April 9, 2021 Heart of the Community Dim Sum Breakfast Friday, June 11, 2021, at 10:00 a.m. EDT – virtual event Malden’s Kevin McGlinchy, a 1995 Malden High School graduate, had four Major League Baseball seasons and 77 MLB appearances from 1999-2002 with the Atlanta Braves and Tampa Bay Rays. MLB | FROM PAGE 1 ident to ever pitch in the Major Leagues, and the fi rst in 21 years. The last Malden resident to pitch in top level of Major League Baseball (MLB) was Edgeworth native Kevin McGlinchy, who made his fi nal appearance in the Majors in May 2000 for the Atlanta Braves. Campbell, who was pitching against his former team, the Tampa Bay Rays, on Saturday, was selected with the 13th pick in the fi rst round of the Rule 5 draft from the Rays by the Marlins. Campbell, a 2013 Malden Catholic High School graduate, had a decent spring training with the Marlins, appearing in six games and fashioning a sub4.00 earned run average. It was a tight fi t for the Opening Day roster, but with the pandemic-related expansion to 26 players, Miami, like most MLB teams, opted for an extra pitcher. Campbell, a 6-1, 210 power pitcher, was announced as a roster spot winner the day before the Marlins fi rst game and made his MLB debut fi ve days later for manager Don Mattingly’s Miami team. In Saturday’s game, an eventual 12-7 Marlins win (Campbell did not fi gure in the decision), the Malden native was called to the mound in just the third inning when starter Elieser Hernandez had to leave prematurely with a biceps injury. Campbell came on with one out, no runners on and was immediately greeted with a pair of singles. He came back solid and recorded his fi rst career strikeout on a fi lthy slider to Joey Wendle, who K’d swinging. Campbell then escaped the inning unscathed when Rays Joey Berti lined out softly. Campbell was solid in the top of the fourth inning, getting the Rays in order 1-2-3 on a grounder, a popup and fly ball out. Malden High School 1990 grad Rich Barker played five professional seasons from 19962000 and made three Major League Baseball pitching appearances in the 1999 season with the Chicago Cubs. The former Clemson University righty trotted back out for the fi fth inning. Campbell surrendered a single to start the inning and then showed some Pitchers’ Fielding Practice skills by fi elding a sacrifi ce bunt for an out by the Rays pitcher, Yoshi Tsutsugo. Campbell then issued his only walk, to Austin Meadows, and let up a single to Rays All-Star Manuel Margot before being lifted. His ERA suff ered when reliever Adam Cimber let up backto-back hits, a single and double, and two more runs scored. All in all, it was a better than All three Major League pitchers from Malden coached by same person in high school All three Major League pitchers from Malden, including the latest one, Campbell, all shared one trait. They were all coached in high school by present Malden High School Head Coach and former Malden Catholic Head Coach Steve Freker. Freker coached two pitchers who made it to the Major Leagues in his fi rst coaching go-round at Malden High, from 1985-1999. McGlinchy, a 1995 Malden High School graduate, signed with the Braves in 1996 in a draft-and-follow after his fi fthround selection in 1995. He made his Majors debut in 1999 at the age of 22 and ended up setting an Atlanta rookie single-season appearance record of 65 appearances, all in relief. McGlinchy, who attended one year of college at Central Florida Community College, then spent the 2000 season with the Braves, an injury-shortened campaign before two seasons with Tampa, after being selected in Rule 5. He never appeared in a game with Tampa and was released midway through 2002. decent debut, and Campbell showed a great deal of poise in surrendering two hits right out of the gate and then retiring the next fi ve Major League hitters he faced. The Marlins are off to a rough start overall at 1-5 as of Thursday, and their starting pitching took a hit with the loss of Hernandez for a week. Heading into yesterday’s matinee versus the New York Mets on the road, Campbell was being considered for an emergency start, which would have been the fi rst of his career. Malden’s other Major Leaguer was 1991 Malden High grad Rich Barker, who appeared in three games at the Major League level in the 1999 season. Barker’s career ended in the minors in 2001. Freker coached at Malden Catholic from 2000-2012, during which the Lancers won the MIAA Division 1 State Championship and nearly 200 games in that span. Campbell was a junior on Coach Freker’s fi nal Lancer team in 2012. “Paul deserves everything he gets. He never asked for anything and got where he is through a lot of self-motivation and plain old hard work,” said Freker, who returned to coach Malden High in 2017 and is now in his fi fth year back in Malden and 35th year overall. “He and his father Alan did all the work to get Paul all the way to the highest level there is in baseball.” “It was an honor to have coached Paul and his brother Jake Halloran at Malden Catholic and also to call him and his dad friends today,” Freker added. “I wish him all the best and was thrilled when he called me the day he learned he made the Marlins’ Opening Day roster.” GBH General Manager of Television Liz Cheng accepted ACDC’s Neil Y. Chin Community Service Award at the 2020 Heart of the Community Dim Sum Breakfast. T his year’s event will be held virtually. Although we would have preferred to enjoy Dim Sum with the hundreds of guests that usually attend our Breakfast, we are prioritizing the public health of our guests and the community. We look forward to sharing with you the ways in which the Asian Community Development Corporation (ACDC) has served the communities of Greater Boston, Malden and Quincy over the past year. With collective care, we will remain a resilient community. We continue to strengthen our partnerships with other organizations and coalitions to meet the growing, urgent needs of the Asian immigrant and AAPI communities – needs that stem from the pandemic; the most recent surge in racism and attacks against Asian immigrant and AAPI individuals; and the structural racism that, for generations, has marginalized the voices and issues impacting working class, immigrant and BIPOC communities we serve. Proceeds from this event support engaging community members in reimagining and rebuilding their quality of life and transforming their neighborhoods through ACDC’s programs, which include A-VOYCE youth leadership program, bilingual fi rst-time homebuyer workshops and fi nancial counseling, civic engagement and placekeeping projects.

TRASH | FROM PAGE 1 cations Director Cochran, who has been responsible for the effort to educate and inform residents about this program over the last month. “One thing I can say is that a big change like this is diffi cult to communicate with 100% of residents. We have challenges that include language barriers, diff erences in levels of engagement and where people get their information from coupled with a program that doesn’t quite fi t the mold of what other cities have implemented.” Cochran points out that he has tried to cover all of these challenges by printing materials in multiple languages and making the information available on social media as well as traditional media, such as newspaper and TV, but he understands that there will still be residents who are confused about how the program works and that’s ok. “That’s what the hotline is for!” said Cochran. What are the most important things that residents need to know at the outset of the program? When asked what are the most important things that residents need to know at the outset of this program, Cochran said, “We understand that people are busy and that the last thing they want to add to their plate is something about how to get rid of their trash.” With that said he suggests that for the initial rollout, keep these three things at the forefront: For the fi rst few months of the program, residents must continue to buy blue bags and you will put them in your new black trash cart. In July, “Trash Tags” will be made available which will allow household bags to go in the black cart but not until that point. Just remember this rhyme: “Blue bag or trash tag.” For recycling, once you receive your new blue recycling cart, stop using your 18-gallon a talent. Such a great kid. My sincerest condolences to his family. “This is the end, beautiful friend, this is the end, my only friend, the end” – looks like the Saint Rocco Feast in Edgeworth this August may be canceled again this year – not looking good.

Postscript: And speaking of Edgeworth and the San Rock Festa...loved this quote by Robert DiGiovanni, an old-school Edgeworth guy who is wise beyond his years: “I don’t think the geographical lines of Edgeworth can be accurately mapped out. It’s more a feeling of love deep in our hearts, for a place where we raised thousands of our sons and daughters. It’s a tradition more than a location, in our minds, of years past and present, of our parents, families, friends, and memories both good and bad, residing in this part of the world forever, we call Edgeworth.” Awesome, Rob!

Page 12 THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, April 9, 2021 ‘Ted’ times two: Malden PD Chief’s ‘furry friends’ Malden Man and Woman Arrested for Drug and Firearms Conspiracy Involving Five Shootings and Multiple Machine Guns One defendant allegedly committed five shootings and possessed a machine gun while participating in drug trafficking conspiracy B OSTON – A Malden man and woman have been arrested and charged in connection with a drug and firearms conspiracy that included multiple shootings in Chelsea, Somerville and Cambridge. Jaiir Coleman, a/k/a “JC,” a/k/a “Chino,” 22, was charged by criminal complaint with one count of conspiracy to distribute and possess with intent to distribute a controlled substance; one count of conspiring to possess, use and carry firearms in furtherance of a drug trafficking conspiracy; one count of possessing a machine gun; and one count of possessing a machine gun in furtherance of a drug trafficking conspiracy. Coleman is currently in state custody and will make an initial appearance in federal court in Boston at a later date. Christina Bernbaum, a/k/a “Tina,” 23, was charged by criminal complaint with one count of conspiracy to distribute and possess with intent to distribute a controlled substance and one count of conspiring to possess, use and carry firearms in furtherance of a drug trafficking conspiracy. Bernbaum was arrested today and will make an initial appearance in federal court this afternoon. As alleged in the charging documents, Coleman and Bernbaum participated in a long-running conspiracy to manufacture, distribute and possess controlled substances, including in large quantities locally in the Bangor, Maine area. It is alleged that Bernbaum’s participation included conspiring to distribute controlled substances on Coleman’s behalf during his incarceration. The charging documents describe numerous recorded conversations in which the sale and distribution of controlled substances was discussed, including explicit instructions by Coleman about the manner in which to adulterate fentanyl and the prices to charge. The charging documents further describe numerous videos and images that allegedly depict Coleman and Bernbaum brandishing and holding firearms, including a suspected machine gun. During the course of the conspiracy, Coleman allegedly committed five shootings. Four shootings took place on Nov. 11, 2019, in Chelsea and Somerville, during which homes and vehicles were allegedly riddled with gunfire. A fifth shooting took place in Cambridge in July 2020, during which it is alleged that Coleman used a machine gun to shoot into a crowd. On Jan. 6, 2021, Coleman was arrested for operating with a suspended license, during which time a machine gun was recovered from the vehicle. Coleman is currently in state custody. It is alleged that a music video publicly posted online earlier that week depicts Coleman brandishing what appears to be the same machine gun recovered from the vehicle on Jan. 6, 2021. The charge of possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute provides for a sentence of up to 20 years in prison, at least three years and up to life of supervised release and a fine of up to $1 million. The charge of conspiring to possess, use and carry firearms in furtherance of a drug trafficking conspiracy provides for a sentence of up to life in prison because a machine gun was involved in the offense, five years of supervised release and a fine of $250,000. The charge of possessing a machine gun provides for a sentence of up to 10 years in prison, three years of supervised release and a fine of $250,000. The charge of possessing a machine gun during and in relation to a drug trafficking crime provides for a mandatory minimum sentence of 30 years and up to life to be served consecutively to the penalty for the underlying drug trafficking crime, five years of supervised release and a fine of $250,000. Sentences are imposed by a federal district judge based on the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and other statutory factors. The operation was conducted by a multi-agency task force through the Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force (OCDETF), a partnership between federal, state and local law enforcement agencies. The principal mission of the OCDETF program is to identify, disrupt and dismantle the most serious drug trafficking, weapons trafficking and money laundering organizations, and those primarily responsible for the nation’s illegal drug supply. More information on the OCDETF program is available here: https://www.justice.gov/ocdetf/about-ocdetf The details contained in the charging documents are allegations. The defendants are presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law. Malden Police Chief Kevin Molis is a well-known animal lover and also an enthusiastic “municipal perambulator” who is seen on foot most days in Malden Square and other parts of the city.

My 84-year-old father is having trouble keeping up with his bills and insurance, and I just found out that he’s been making contributions to a suspicious charity. Reluctant Daughter Dear Reluctant, Many adult children serve as fi nancial helpers to their elderly or ill parents. They provide services like paying bills, handling deposits and investments, fi ling insurance claims, preparing taxes and more. Here are some tips and resources that can help you help your dad. Start with a Conversation Taking on the task of helping an elderly parent with their fi nances can be a sensitive and diffi cult topic. The fi rst step in helping your dad is to have a respectful talk with him expressing your concerns, as you stated in your question, and off ering to help him with his fi nancial chores. If you have siblings, it can be a good idea to get them involved too. This can help you head off any possible hard feelings, plus, with others involved, your dad will know everyone is concerned. Get Organized If your dad is willing to let you help manage, monitor or take over his fi nancial aff airs your fi rst order of business is to get organized by making a list of his fi nancial accounts and other important information. Your list should include his: • Contact list: Names and numbers of key contacts like insurance agents, fi nancial advisor, tax preparer, family attorney, etc. • Monthly bills: Phone, cable, water and trash, gas, electric, credit card accounts, etc. • Financial accounts: Including bank accounts, brokerage and mutual fund accounts, safe-deposit boxes and any other fi nancial assets he has. Also get usernames and passwords for fi nancial accounts that are set up online. • Company benefi ts: Any retirement plans, pensions or health benefi ts from his current or former employer. • Insurance policies: Life, home, auto, long-term care, Medicare, etc. • Taxes: Copies of your dad’s income tax returns over the past few years. Locate Important Documents This is also the ideal time to fi nd out if your dad has the following essential legal documents: A will; an advance directive that includes a living will and health-care proxy, which allows you or another family member or friend to make medical decisions on his behalf if he becomes incapacitated; and a durable power of attorney, which gives you or a designated person similar legal authority for fi nancial decisions, if needed. If he doesn’t have these important documents prepared, now is the time to do it. And if they are prepared, make sure they’re updated, and you know where they’re located. Simplify Financial Tasks The quickest way to help your dad simplify his monthly fi nancial chores is to set up automatic payments for his utilities and other routine bills and arrange for direct deposit of his income sources. If your dad has savings and investments scattered in many diff erent accounts, you should consider consolidating them. You can also set up your dad’s bank system and investment accounts online, so you can pay bills and monitor his accounts anytime. Set Up Protections To guard against scams and risky fi nancial behaviors, consider getting your dad a True Link Visa Prepaid Card (TrueLinkFinancial. com/card). Designed for older adults with cognitive issues this card would provide your dad access to his money but with restrictions that you set on how funds can be spent. Or check out EverSafe. com, a web-based service that will automatically monitor your dad’s accounts, track suspicious activity and alert you when a problem is detected. Seek Help If you need help or live far away, consider hiring a daily money manager (see AADMM.com) who can come in once or twice a month to pay bills, make deposits, decipher health insurance statements and balance his checkbook. Fees range between $60 and $150 per hour. Send your senior questions to: Savvy Senior, P.O. Box 5443, Norman, OK 73070, or visit SavvySenior.org.

THE HOUSE AND SENATE: There were no roll calls in the House and Senate last week. This week, Beacon Hill Roll Call reports on the number of times each representative sided with Gov. Charlie Baker on his 151 vetoes of items in the 2020 session. A two-thirds vote is required to override a gubernatorial veto. In a full 160-member House, the governor needed the support of 54 representatives to sustain a veto when all 160 representatives voted—and fewer votes when some members were absent, or a seat was vacant. Baker fell short of that goal as 46 votes was the most support he received on any veto. The House easily overrode all 151 vetoes, including 12 that were overridden unanimously. It was mostly the 31 GOP members who voted with the Republican governor to sustain the vetoes. No representatives voted with Baker 100 percent of the time. The three GOP members who voted with Baker the most times are Reps. Donald Berthiaume (R-Spencer) who voted with Baker 128 times (84.7 percent); Shawn Dooley (R-Norfolk), 119 times (78.8 percent); and David DeCoste (R-Norwell), 116 times (76.8 percent). The three GOP members who supported Baker the least number of times were Rep. David Vieira (R-Falmouth) who sided with the governor only 41 times (27.1 percent); Timothy Whelan (R-Brewster) 60 times (40.5 percent); and Nicholas Boldyga (R-Southwick) 79 times (52.3 percent). The vetoes had little support among the 127 Democrats in the House. Only 22 (17.3 percent) of the chamber's 127 Democrats voted with Baker to sustain any vetoes while the other 105 (82.7 percent) did not support the governor even once. The Democratic representative who supported Baker the most times was Rep. Mike Connolly (D-Cambridge) who sided with Baker 11 times (7.2 percent). PERCENTAGE OF TIMES LOCAL REPRESENTATIVES SUPPORTED BAKER’S VETOES IN 2020 Here is how your representative fared in his or her support of Baker on the vetoes. The percentage next to the representative’s name represents the percentage of times the representative supported Baker. The number in parentheses represents the actual number of times he or she supported Baker. Some representatives voted on all 151 roll call votes. Others missed one or more of the 151 votes. Each record is based on the number of roll calls on which a representative voted and does not count the roll calls for which he or she was absent. BEACON| SEE PAGE 18

Beacon Hill Roll Call tracks the length of time that the House and Senate were in session each week. Many legislators say that legislative sessions are only one aspect of the Legislature’s job and that a lot of important work is done outside of the House and Senate chambers. They note that their jobs also involve committee work, research, constituent work and other matters that are important to their districts. Critics say that the Legislature does not meet regularly or long enough to debate and vote in public view on the thousands of pieces of legislation that have been fi led. They note that the infrequency and brief length of sessions are misguided and lead to irresponsible late-night sessions and a mad rush to act on dozens of bills in the days immediately preceding the end of an annual session. During the week of March 29-April 2, the House met for a total of nine minutes while the Senate met for a total of 33 minutes. Mon. March 29 House 11:00 a.m. to 11:04 a.m. Senate 11:27 a.m. to 11:37 a.m. Tues. March 30 No House session No Senate session Wed. March 31 No House session No Senate session Thurs.

When the pandemic hit in early 2020, he was laid off from his job as a tailor and turned his full attention to making and donating masks. In conjunction with The Shapiro Foundation, he was able to produce and distribute more than 2,000 masks in 22 states early in the pandemic when masks were in limited supply. A humble man, this accomplishment is something Hayani calls “just something very small to help the American people.” Monique Nguyen was born in Canada to parents from Vietnam and moved with her family to the United States as a child. As the executive director of the Matahari Women Workers’ Center in Boston, Nguyen created the MassUndocuFund last year with the Massachusetts Jobs with Justice coalition and One Fair Wage coalition to assist undocumented immigrants who lost employment or wages due to the pandemic. According to her organization, there are an estimated 250,000 undocumented immigrants who live and work in Massachusetts and contribute about $184.6 million in state and local taxes. Because of their immigration status, none of these residents are eligible for federal stimulus funds or state unemployment benefi ts. The MassUndocuFund has raised $1.5 million and distributed grants to workers in the restaurant industry, agriculture and construction and domestic workers and more in all 14 counties in Massachusetts. A native of Ireland, Niall Lennon is a senior director at the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard and a critical member of the team that, in conjunction with the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, has made more than 15 million and counting COVID-19 tests possible. Starting with the fi rst test in March 2020 through the current processing of 120,000 tests each day, Lennon has spearheaded clinical validation and been a primary liaison with the Food and Drug Administration as well as partners such as the Soldiers’ Home in Holyoke. Residents in COVID-19 hotspots, nursing homes, long-term care facilities, hospitals, homeless shelters and low-income housing complexes – as well as students in 140 public and private colleges and universities throughout the Northeast and K-12 schools across Massachusetts – have benefi ted from these eff orts. Other elected officials who contributed messages of thanks and congratulations included Congresswoman Katherine Clark, Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey, Massachusetts Secretary of Housing and Economic Development Mike Kennealy, State Senator Jason Lewis and Revere Mayor Brian Arrigo. Business and community leaders also showed their support through prerecorded messages, including Massachusetts Competitive Partnership President/CEO Jay Ash, Boston Business Journal Executive Editor Doug Banks, Deshpande Foundation Founder/Trustee “Desh” Deshpande and New England Patriots Foundation President Josh Kraft.
