On Thursday, yesterday, the students of MHS, Superintendent Dr. Ligia Noriega-Murphy, Principal Chris Mastrangelo, Malden Police Chief Glenn Cronin, MHS Haitian Club Advisor Paul Degenkolb and over 300 students joined in a celebration of joy and love in front of the high school. It was the Annual Haitian Flag Raising Ceremony where the National Flag of Haiti is raised in front of the school, signifying the declaration of Haitian Independence from France in 1804. Noriega-Murphy and the MHS principal, speakers from the very active MHS Haitian Club detailed the history of the Flag and of Haitian independence. Another member sang the Haitian National Anthem, "La Dessalinienne" to the delight of the crowd, who joined in. The students then listened to the story of MHS House Principal Ewald Charles, a native of Haiti who emigrated to the United States from Haiti at the age of 18. He now has two daughters entering Columbia University this year, an Ivy League institution. Music followed and lots of dancing and the morning event was a big success.

Like they say around Malden, he was “a real character,” and in these parts that is a bigtime compliment. It means he had ways about him that were unique – in a good way – and when talking about Tom Heerter, there is a whole bunch of good to talk about. As Pine Banks Superintendent Kevin Benner, who was coached by Heerter in multiple sports and then coached alongside him, says, “Tom was like the Father Flanagan of Malden sports. He loved ALL the kids and never thought there was a bad kid anywhere, only another one that needed to be helped.” The worst thing that Tom Heerter would ever say was that a kid was “a little fresh sometimes,” to coin a phrase... and then he’d find a way to help that kid get back on the right track. He was man of all seasons, lit$2.99 GALLON We accept: MasterCard * Visa * & Discover Price Subject to Change without notice 100 Gal. Min. 24 Hr.

When he passed suddenly in 2015, taking ill during a practice on a Malden field, of course, a huge void was left in the Malden community. Benner has taken the mantle of organizing a memorial event for Tom Heerter Sr., on Saturday, June 3, at Pine Banks Park (1087 Flyer Main St., Malden) at 11:00 a.m. A memorial stone will be laid and other remembrances will be held.

Another is Thaer Abdallah’s 40x60-inch oil painting “The Nakba,” which portrays the forced migration of Palestinian people in 1948.

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, May 19, 2023 Page 7 LAWSUIT | FROM PAGE 1 a cannabis dispensary at 926 Eastern Ave., in the middle of the stretch of Route 60 between Maplewood Street and Broadway, has been on the outside looking in since the middle of 2021, despite being approved by the local Malden Cannabis Licensing and Enforcement Commission (CLEC). At the time, the CLEC favorable vote seemed its biggest hurdle. That was until the company’s bid for the granting of a zoning variance from the Malden Board of Appeal was denied in January 2022, citing two statutes in Malden’s laws governing cannabis establishments that prohibited them from opening. (Attempts to reach the Malden CLEC on this case were unsuccessful by press deadline.) The main Malden-only law which thwarted Benevolent’s bid, according to owner Michael Clebnik – who is planning on operating the cannabis dispensary under the name Continuum – involved the minimum distance the business has to be from residential properties: 75 feet. As planned, the new dispensary fell short of this regulation by a mere 14 feet, he said, and that 14 feet has sadAID | FROM PAGE 1 Grant program.” The program criteria for this Mini Grant are as follows: • Must be a recognized 501(c) (3) by IRS • Must serve Malden residents • Must be “in good standing” by Secretary of State (all filings current) • Must spend funds over one fiscal year period ending prior to December 31, 2024 • Entity has not received a prior ARPA grant from City of Malden • Preference to entities providing the following: 1. Food security 2. Homelessness help 3. Behavioral health (mental health, substance use treatment, other) 4. Preventing and responding to violence 5. Demonstrated purpose is to Disproportionately Impacted communities: dled the long-awaited Continuum dispensary with a 14-months-plus wait since the lawsuit was filed in February 2022. The lawsuit was filed after the Malden Board of Appeal voted at its January 2022 meeting against granting Benevolent Botanicals/Continuum’s petition for a variance in regard to the Malden cannabis zoning regulation prohibiting siting a dispensary within 75 feet of a residential property. This came after a nearly four-hour Zoom meeting where dozens of Malden residents – including the Ward City Councillor Jadeane Sica and a Malden School Committee member – offered live testimony in favor of granting the petition. The main premise cited by the Board of Appeal in its decision was that they were not prepared to vote against the regulations put in place by the Malden City Council, essentially placing the Benevolent Botanicals application in administrative “limbo.” This was because the City Council was unable to act on granting a now-needed special permit for the business without the variance from the Board of Appeal. “The bottom line is the Malden zoning requirements re• Child Care serving low-income families • QCT (In Qualified Census Tract-3413.01/3413.02/3418) •Individuals receiving state assistance (SNAP, TANF, NSLP, SBP) To date, the City of Malden has authorized nonprofit funding to the Mystic Valley YMCA, Malden Babe Ruth, Malden Neighborhood Basketball, Food Drive, Creative Malden and the Chinese Culture Connection. “Our nonprofits were there with us during the despair of Covid-19 and continue to struggle financially.We realize the impact that these funds are not only having on our nonprofits, but the residents they serve,” said Mayor Christenson.

Like us on Facebook advocate newspaper Facebook.com/ Advocate.news.ma garding cannabis dispensaries exceeds state law and makes it virtually impossible to open a business of this nature in the city,” Clebnik told the Advocate Wednesday. “Not only is this situation depriving my business of operating in this community, it is also denying residents of Malden a substantial source of additional tax revenue,” the would-be owner of a third Malden cannabis dispensary said. Clebnik said he recalled a conversation with one Malden City Councillor who told him of a project she was working on which involved raising funds to purchase additional books for Malden schoolchildren. “We could have been open for almost a year now turning over tens of thousands of dollars in tax revenues to the City of Malden had we been granted the zoning variance we were told was expected to be granted,” Clebnik said. “Those revenues could have been paid for those books many times over.” “Why are Malden citizens not asking their City Councillors why their community is being deprived of those tax revenues due to a zoning law that is overly restrictive?” Clebnik said. The Continuum dispensary owner said there is progress in at least the timetable of the company’s lawsuit against the City of Malden at this time. Clebnik said a judge ruled at a May 5 status hearing that summaries from both parties – Benevolent and the City of Malden – be submitted in June in preparation for a summary judgment from the bench in the case. “We remain optimistic we will absolutely prevail in this case,” said Clebnik.

Page 10 THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, May 19, 2023 Friends of the Malden Public Library delight patrons with Spring Book Sale and “Coffee and a Book – the perfect blend” partnership with New England Coffee Company he Friends of the Malden Public Library dazzled members and the general public with an innovative approach to the Spring Book Sale last weekend. The Friends offered a Members-Only preview sale on Friday evening, May 5, giving Friends members the opportunity to be the first to sample the collection of the second-hand books that are lovingly sorted, cleaned and shelved by a small group of volunteers, led by Devra, Book Room coordinator. The second part of the formula for success was the Saturday Book Sale, open to the general public, which was paired with the “Coffee and a Book – the Perfect Blend” fundraiser, in collaboration with the New England Coffee Co., a Malden-based coffee roaster and vendor. Who has not perceived the warm, toasty aroma of NECC beans being roasted in the evenings in Malden Square? The Friends of the MPL is the volunteer, fundraising arm of the Library, hosting fun, cultural events along the year to help fund the Library’s numerous community events and activities. Friends President Mary Ellen O’Meara has identified a mutually beneficial opportunity in ~ ANNOUNCEMENT~ REVERE AMERICAN LEGION POST # 61 Is reopening soon! partnering with local businesses and has been working toward that objective. “The New England Coffee Co. has been wonderful. They sent over the Coffee truck, all coffee was donated to the Friends. Patrons had the chance to taste the NECC blends and give whatever they could for the beverage consumed. The people in the truck were pleasant and efficient, our patrons were overjoyed to be offered a delicious coffee, roasted and brewed in Malden, at the entrance to the Library! Everyone gave what they could, some patrons were very generous, and all proceeds went toward funding the programs the Library organizes.” O’Meara pointed out that Malden was recently recognized as one of the most diverse cities in the Commonwealth and that the Friends was seeking to reach out to all cultural and age groups in Malden to reflect that diversity in membership. “We are looking for new members and new ideas. Everyone is welcome in the Friends as long as you love books and share our desire to serve the Library and the Community! The secret to success is getting everyone involved and incorporating the younger generations to keep up with the times,” she stated. Meetings for the friends are the second Tuesday of every month at 7:30pm at the Library. T We are happy to announce that we have begun making reservations for our function hall.

Page 12 THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, May 19, 2023 Opening Day festivities for Malden’s Modified 2023 Softball League O n Monday, May 8, Malden’s Modified Softball League 2023 season got off to a rousing start with its opening day festivities, which included a tribute to late League Commissioner Steve Butland, the National Anthem sung by Todd Angilly and a rematch of last year’s championship matchup between the Bombers and P-Cals. We were also honored to have Mayor Gary Christenson and Ward 8 Councillor Jadeane Sica stop by and help commemorate the history of our league, as well as our commitment to the Malden community. With that, it was time to play ball! P-Cals got off to a strong start against the Bombers, with Cody Skeffington driving in a whopping six runs, and Danny Trentsch adding three RBIs as well. The Bombers counterattacked with Jonathan Zewiey going four for four with two RBIs and three runs scored. The P-Cals would prove once again to be too much, as they rallied for six and eight runs in the fourth and fifth innings, respectively, and would go in to win 19-8. The Bombers, however, would be right back at it the following night, facing off against a hungry St. Peter’s Angels squad that was unceremoniously bounced from the playoffs in the previous season by the Bombers in the semifinal round. Having been tuned up the previous night, the Bombers would pick up their first win of the season, as the Angels had some rust to shake off, and walk away with a 12-10 victory. Later that night, what appears to be an improved Criollos team would go on to defeat the Dirtbags 18-2. Anyone looking to catch a game or join the league can do so by going to maldensoftball.com.

Page 14 THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, May 19, 2023 Comedy Night Fundraiser for Malden Overcoming Addiction a Great Success Special to The Advocate W hat a night! The annual Malden Overcoming Addiction (MOA) comedy fundraiser was a huge success, drawing more than 300 guests to the Irish American Hall, where food, raffles, testimonies and laughs sent everyone home singing the praises of the recovery work happening in Malden. The night was full of surprises! The comedian lineup was stellar – organized by the affable and loveable Dave Russo. As the Master of Ceremonies, he delivered some great mini sets as he introduced Malden’s own Paul Gilligan and Anthony Scibelli, among others. As usual, they delivered! The crowd erupted when Russo brought on the comedic legend Lenny Clarke. In fitting fashion three of the comedians spoke of their own sobriety dates, which had a big impact on the crowd at hand. The evening opened with inspiring words from Mayor Gary Christenson, who was followed by Police Chief Glen Cronin and Ward 5 Councillor Barbara Murphy. All three currently sit on Malden’s Opioid Task Force. Their leadership and their collective voices around the recovery work happening in Malden with MOA at the center resonated with many. MOA President Paul Hammersley spoke of his own personal struggles and triumphs, crediting some of the connections he made along the way with his recovery success. He specifically called out Mayor Christenson for his unconditional support. Two young people in recovery spoke next, each mentioning Malden Overcoming Addiction and coach PJ Bell as important to their ongoing journey in recovery. The night ended in fitting fashion with the 50/50 raffle drawing donated back to the organization by the winner, a longtime friend of MOA icon Dom DiSario, who passed away two years ago, and is credited with helping to shape the vision of MOA. Malden Overcoming Addiction would like to thank all of their supporters and volunteers. The organization would simply not exist without the generosity and kindness exhibited by the many people in attendance, and those involved with our yearround activities.

It is said in Malden Musings... • Hard to believe it is the third anniversary of the passing of one, John Lincoln Coughlin, aka Preacher Jack. Covid-19 did what booze, smokes, and a bad diet could not. Jack was the barroom preacher with the gift of gab and a killer left hand introducing many of us to a strange new sound in music, boogie-woogie. His musical infl uences - Pete Johnson, Meade Lux Lewis, Hank Williams Sr., Papa Jimmy Yancy, Jerry Lee Lewis - opening musical doors American Exterior and Window Corporation for us we never knew existed. His barroom sermons were often insane but mostly the best musical theater that you ever chanced upon. Just ask Peter Wolf, Willie Alexander, Gary Cherone, Sue Tedeschi, Henry Horenstein, Nuno Bettencourt, Steve Morse, Dale Hawkins, Barrence Whitfield, Ken Irwin, Sal Baglio, AJ Wachtel, George Thorogood, Bill Nowlin, Kay Hanley, Al Vega, David Maxwell, or Henry Ferrini. All witnessed the gospel according to Jack and became loyal disciples. Rest in peace Jack. • Here is a classic quote from late Malden funnyman John "Show Me the Buff et" Pinette. John's family is really what 'All About Malden' is all about! The 1982 Malden Catholic graduate appeared in the fi nal episode of Seinfeld as the hapless carjacking victim and was said to be a favorite of 'The Chairman of the Board,' Frank Sinatra. Take it away, John:"I grew up in Malden. Genetically, I was born to be as close to Kelly's Roast Beef as possible."

Watching my recommended daily dose of westerns one late evening I spotted yet ANOTHER Malden guy on late night TV. Maverick - starring James Garner, the 1957 episode titled "Ghost Rider" featured Malden boy Richard "Sonny" Collier (listed in the credits only as a "barfl y"). Sonny had a long and storied career as a character actor in Tinseltown. Roles in Blazing Saddles, Snow White and the 3 Stooges, Imitation of Life (with Lana Turner), and as Otto Puff endorfer in the 1960's Batman series places Sonny in the legendary Maldonian category! • 'Jesus Christ Superstar' is touring on the 50th anniversary of the fi lm’s release with the indomitable Ted Neeley back in the saddle. JCS came roaring into Boston on a VERY cold Jan 13th of 1996 with original "Jesus" Ted Neeley doing what he was put on earth to do, play lord and savior. Name drop alert: after the performance a group of us went out with Ted to dine. "The Soul of Saugus" - Kowloon - was our destination. I had a plate of beef fried rice and chicken fi ngers. But I digress. There were about nine of us, we were trying to arrange seating. Ted came up with the most logical suggestion, and I quote: "boy, girl, boy, girl, Jesus, boy, girl, boy girl". Long Live Ted Neeley! • Gary Hennessey, 1957-2023. Malden High School 1975. US Air Force veteran. Malden Police, 30 years. Good kid.

As Peter Falk's iconic TV character 'Columbo' would say "Just one more thing sir" - Who says all news is bad!? Here is some good news brought to you by City of Malden employee Joanne Settemio: Longtime Maldonian (1976 MHS graduate) Linda Porter (Edgeworth girl from Medford St) moved to NH upon retirement from the MBTA about a year or so ago. That's not the good news - usually it is, but I have better news. Anyway, she played the NH Lottery - a second chance drawing - and she won the grand prize! Linda and Joanne have been good friends since the '70’s, so naturally she asked her to accompany her to Nashville!But wait here is the really cool part, they are going on tour with country star, Lee Brice!A very popular country performer with tons of hits and awards. They are being fl own to Nashville, putting them up in a hotel, touring Nashville, then going with the band and crew on a luxury motor coach to 2 concerts in Texas as well.Front row seats and backstage passes, hanging with the band and crew and they will get to tour two diff erent locations in Texas as well as attend both concerts. One of the concerts is in Fort Worth at Billy Bob's, one of the largest honky tonks in the country. Great news Joanne, I want a full report when you get home. Have fun, stay safe, and behave yourself! Postscript 1: Mayor Gary is a whirling dervish! He's here, he's there; at times it seems like he is in multiple places all at once. Here's a special shout out to a very special person; keeping up with "The Boss" (usually all night, every night) is his “heart-stopping, pants-dropping, earth shocking, hard rocking, booty-shaking, earth-quaking, lovemaking, Motrin-taking, history making, legendary” Special Assistant to the Mayor, Maria Luise. Thank you for all you do for the city of Malden, Maria! For the uninitiated, this is a famous catch line used to describe Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band (I knew you would get this Chic). Postscript 2: In this ever-changing world that we live in (sounds like a Paul McCartney lyric!) one constant remains, kindness. “Join the fearless in being kind” and at the very next opportunity, make somebody happy. Which reminds me of the Jule Styne 1960 composition, 'Make Someone Happy' - stylized as only Jimmy Durante can: "Make someone happy, make just one, someone happy, and you will be happy too."

It would repeal the current law that allows municipalities to keep all of the profits—even if the amount ~ LEGAL NOTICE ~ Invitation to Bid Master Meter System Operations and Maintenance Plan (OMP) Compliance Services MHA #051223 MHA is accepting sealed bids for an indefinite quantity contract award to a natural gas industry compliance company expert to provide Master Meter Pipeline Operator (MMPO) services at two MHA properties for a minimum term of one (1) year extending up to a maximum term of five (5) consecutive years in the MHA’s sole discretion.

The MHA is an Equal Opportunity Employer and a Drug & Smoke Free Agency May 19, 2023 of the profit far exceeds the amount of back taxes owed. “Massachusetts foreclosure law wrongly takes away people’s homes for even a small debt and allows municipalities to profit off their home equity well beyond the debt owed— leaving the homeowners vulnerable to housing and economic instability,” said sponsor Sen. Jo Comerford (D-Northampton). “These homeowners are losing hard-earned equity and life savings, losing homes with precious family memories and also facing housing instability due to predatory tax foreclosure practice.” MAKE IT EASIER TO SELL FOOD MADE AT HOME (S 553) – The Agriculture Committee held a hearing on a proposal that would allow home cooks to sell their home-made foods that carry a low risk of foodborne illness—those that do not need to be temperature-controlled—without a local health department or zoning permit. These so-called “cottage foods” would only be allowed to be sold directly to the consumer in person, at farmers markets, public events, roadside stands, by telephone, Internet or mail delivery. Products include jams, uncut fruits and vegetables, pickled vegetables, hard candies, fudge, nut mixes, granola, coffee beans, popcorn and some baked goods including breads, biscuits, cookies, churros, pastries and tortillas. “Technicalities should not prevent small businesses and farmers from stimulating rural economies and improving economic development,” said sponsor Sen. Jake Oliveira (D-Ludlow). “My legislation … will break down the barriers that prevent rural small business owners from operating, spur competition in the market and create better prices for consumers. Supporters, noting that 49 states allow cottage food sales, say that during the pandemic, selling cottage food provided a lifeline for unemployed Massachusetts residents and noted consumers also enjoy having access to local food. They argue that by following the lead of these 49 other states, Massachusetts can support food entrepreneurs, create economic opportunities and increase access to locally made food. TAX CREDIT FOR DONATION OF OYSTER SHELLS (S 466) – Anothermeasure heard by the Agriculture Committee would provide a tax credit of $5 per full 5-gallon bucket to individuals or businesses that donate oyster shells to an oyster shell recycling organization. “A shell recycling tax credit presents a creative and thoughtful tool to help diminish land fill waste, create habitat and mitigate pollution in our waters,” said sponsor Sen. Julian Cyr (D-Truro). “A $5 tax credit per 5-gallon bucket of recycled shells for restaurants will help encourage this environmentally friendly practice.” INSPECTION STICKER (H 1044) – The Financial Services Committee held a hearing on a measure that would prohibit failure to get a vehicle inspection from resulting in a surcharge on the car’s owner’s insurance. “Being late on a motor vehicle inspection (expired inspection sticker) should not result in an insurance surcharge, which could be counted towards a suspension of a driver's license,” said sponsor Rep. Steve Howitt (R-Seekonk). “It should not be comparable to a moving violation.” INSURANCE COMPANIES MUST NOTIFY DRIVER (H 1059) – Another bill heard by the Financial Services Committee would require insurance companies to provide a written notification to customers when the company charges a fee to process an electronic payment transaction for an automobile insurance policy. “I filed this bill after hearing from a constituent who was being charged by their insurance company for making online payments and had never been notified that they would be subject to these fees,” said sponsor GOP Minority Leader Rep. Brad Jones (R-North Reading). “This is a pro-consumer bill that will help to ensure that insurance companies provide full disclosure to their policyholders on any additional fees they may assess for conducting these types of transactions.” TAX CREDITS FOR FAMILIES CARING FOR ILL OR ELDERLY LOVED ONES AT HOME (S 1906 and S 1908) – The Revenue Committee held a hearing on a pair of bills filed by Sen. Patrick O’Connor (R-Weymouth) which would offer tax credits to families taking care of sick or elderly relatives at home. S 1906 would provide a $2,500 tax credit for families that provide more than half of the support for a relative who is at least 70 years old, or a totally disabled relative with Alzheimer’s Disease or dementia. The relative must have lived with the family for more than six months within the year the tax credit is provided. S 1908 would offer a $5,000 tax credit to individuals who pay for direct home health services for themselves or elderly parents and in-laws aged 60 and over. The legislation would also allow a $5,000 tax credit to individuals who pay for direct home hospice services from a licensed provider for either themselves or another. “Caregivers are most often family members,” said the bills’ sponsor Sen.

POOLED TRUSTS ELIGIBILITY OPERATIONS MEMO 23-15 M assHealth has just recently issued Eligibility Operations Memo 23-15 regarding how it will be treating pooled trusts. Pooled trusts are utilized typically when a single individual is applying for MassHealth benefi ts and is over the asset limit. A Payment is made to the non-profit organization that administers the pooled trust in order to reduce the applicant’s countable resources to $2,000. The administrator of the pooled trust may use the monies set aside for the applicant for support services that MassHealth does not pay for or for the purchase if items that MassHealth does not pay for, such as a computer. Any monies left over upon the MassHealth recipient’s death has to be utilized to pay back MassHealth for benefi ts paid on behalf of the recipient and typically 10% of the funds remaining will be kept by the pooled trust organization (often 20% if the recipient was receiving MassHealth benefits for two years or longer). If there are still monies remaining, those monies will be distributed to the family of the MassHealth recipient. The benefi t is that MassHealth pays a nursing home anywhere from fi fty to sixty percent of the private pay amount. Therefore, the amount that has to be repaid is much lower than the private pay rate allowing for the funds in the pooled trust to last longer. There is a chance that money will be left for the family to enjoy. Currently, a single person can put money into a pooled trust if over the asset limit and immediately qualify for MassHealth. There is no fi ve-year look back period requirement. This recent memo is stating that after March 1, 2024, there will be a five-year look-back period requirement for funds placed into a pooled trust for applicants over the age of 65. Currently, there is no fi veyear look back period requirement for applicants who have funded a pooled trust at age 64 or younger, regardless of whether an application for MassHealth benefits is not submitted until age 65 or later, and that provision will remain the same. The likelihood is that this memo is designed to provide our state legislature time to enact legislation to allow for pooled trust to continue to be utilized as they have been in the past thereby requiring no fi veyear look-back period in order to avoid a disqualifying transfer. For example, if you wish to transfer your home into an irrevocable trust, you have to wait for five years in order to avoid a disqualifying transfer. We’ll see what law is actually passed in hopes of protecting the use of pooled trusts. Joseph D.

Don’t Have Much Dear Don’t, Very good question! Almost everyone needs a will, but only around one-third of American have actually prepared one. Having a last will and testament is important because it ensures your money and property will be distributed to the people you want to receive it after your death. If you die without a will (a.k.a. dying “intestate”), your estate will be settled in accordance with state law. Details vary by state, but assets typically are distributed using a hierarchy of survivors i.e., fi rst to a spouse, then to children, then your siblings, and so on. You also need to be aware that certain accounts take preceMay 19, 2023 dence over a will. If you jointly own a home or a bank account, for example, the house, and the funds in the account, will go to the joint holder, even if your will directs otherwise. Similarly, retirement accounts and life insurance policies are distributed to the benefi ciaries you designate, so it is important to keep them up to date too. Do You Need a Lawyer? Not necessarily.

Jackson Council Chamber, Room 106 on the first floor of Malden City Hall, located at 215 Pleasant Street at 7:05 P.M. on Tuesday, June 6, 2023 on the petition of DMS Trinity LLC, on behalf of Charles Street Realty Trust 2020, seeking an extension of the expiration date of the special permit (Case #202-22) granted on April 26, 2022 for a Marijuana Establishment at the property known as and numbered 36 Charles Street, Malden, MA and also known by City Assessor’s Parcel ID #062 239 910. Petition and plans are available for public review in the City Clerk’s Office, 215 Pleasant Street, Room 220 and on the city website under Permit Application # CMID-040598-2021 at https://maldenmaenergovweb.tylerhost.net/apps/SelfService#/permit/d1330151-e462-46658070-d7ba9eff08f7 By: Carol Ann T. Desiderio City Clerk May 19, 2023 program may be acceptable in some cases, particularly if you have a simple, straightforward estate and an uncomplicated family situation. Otherwise, it’s best to seek professional advice. An experienced lawyer can make sure you cover all your bases, which can help avoid family confusion and squabbles after you’re gone. If you need help fi nding someone the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys (NAELA.org), the National Association of Estate Planners & Councils (NAEPC.org) and the American College of Trust and Estate Counsel (ACTEC.org) websites are good resources that have online directories to help you search. Costs will vary depending on your location and the complexity of your situation, but you can expect to pay somewhere between $200 and $1,000 or more to get your will made. To help you save, shop around and get price quotes from several diff erent fi rms. And before you meet with an attorney, make a detailed list of your assets and accounts to help make your visit more effi cient. If money is tight, check with your state’s bar association (see FindLegalHelp.org) to fi nd low-cost legal help in your area. Or call the Eldercare Locater at 800-677-1116 for a referral. If you are interested in a do-it-yourself will, some top options to consider are Nolo’s Quicken WillMaker & Trust (Nolo. com, $99) and Trust & Will (TrustandWill.com, $159). Or, if that’s more than you’re willing to pay, you can make your will for free at FreeWill.com or DoYourOwnWill.com. It’s also recommended that if you do create your own will, have a lawyer review it to make sure it covers all the important bases. Where to Store it? Once your will is written, the best place to keep it is either in a fi reproof safe or fi le cabinet at home, in a safe deposit box in your bank or online at sites like Everplans.com. But make sure your executor knows where it is and has access to it. Or, if a professional prepares your will, keep the original document at your lawyer’s offi ce. Also, be sure to update your will if your family or fi nancial circumstances change, or if you move to another state. Send your senior questions to: Savvy Senior, P.O.

These bills seek to ease their burden and allow them to spend more quality time with their loved ones.” EXPAND THE THE BAN ON THE USE OF PESTICIDES WHERE CHILDREN ARE PRESENT (S 444) – The Environment and Natural Resources Committee held a hearing on a proposal that would expand a current law which restricts pesticide application where children are present including outdoor property of a school, childcare center or school age childcare program while children are located in, on or adjacent to the area of the pesticide application. The bill would expand the current restrictions to include property occupied by the Department of Children and Families, facilities of the Juvenile Court, facilities of the Department of Youth Services and sports fi elds used for town youth teams. “I believe this bill would help to protect children in and around [these] facilities from pesticide exposure,” said sponsor Sen. Will Brownsberger (D-Belmont). QUOTABLE QUOTES “It took over a decade but as a result of this litigation and with credit due to the brave offi cers who fi led this case, the commonwealth is now taking steps to create a police promotional exam that will fairly treat Black and Hispanic candidates. This outcome means the offi cers are going to get some substantial money.” --- Harold Lichten, lead attorney for the police offi cers who won a $40 million settlement between the state and a class of minority police offi cers resolving claims made in the class action lawsuit that a promotional exam used by various police departments discriminates against minority police offi cers who took the exam. “When valid alternative methods are available, there is absolutely no reason why we should allow any company to experiment on such precious creatures. This legislation will enhance protections for these animals and assure consumers that the products they purchase are not created to the detriment of these living beings.” ---Sen. Mark Montigny (D-New Bedford) on his legislation that would require companies to use non-animal-based testing methods for cosmetics and other household products. “By allowing all eligible students to receive in-state tuition, Massachusetts would make college dramatically more aff ordable for tens of thousands of individuals currently without status in the commonwealth. Tuition equity would increase enrollment at state colleges and universities and create a stronger, more empowered workforce to drive our state's future.” ---Massachusetts Immigrant and Refugee Advocacy Coalition (MIRA) Coalition Executive Director Elizabeth Sweet on a Senate budget proposal that would allow some undocumented/illegal immigrants to qualify for lower instate tuition rates if they attended high school in the Bay State for at least three years and graduated or completed high school Graduation Equivalency Degree. “While our audit of the Legislature is ongoing, yes, leadership is still refusing to comply. So, in order to conduct this audit in the most meaningful way, our offi ce is currently reviewing every possible legal step we may unfortunately need to take to support the completion of our audit, as a result of their continued non-compliance.” ---State Auditor Diana DiZoglio telling the State House News Service about the status of DiZoglio’s plan to audit the Legislature which has met with resistance from House Speaker Ron Mariano (D-Quincy) who says her intent is without legal support or precedent, and runs contrary to multiple, explicit provisions of the Massachusetts Constitution. HOW LONG WAS LAST WEEK'S SESSION? Beacon Hill Roll Call tracks the length of time that the House and enate 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 latenight sessions and a mad rush to act on dozens of bills in the days immediately preceding the end of an annual session During the week of May 8-12, the House met for a total of 21 minutes and the Senate met for a total of 20 minutes.
