(Advocate photo by Tara Vocino) “Cancel plans to install artificial turf” – environmental justice coalition urges Malden elected officials, citing health hazards of PFAS and heat, cost, exclusion of stakeholders and city code WE'VE GOT ALL Advocate Staff Report O n April 28, a coalition of regional environmental justice and conservation organizations echoed local concerns, urging the City of Malden to “cancel its plans to install artifi cial turf” at Roosevelt Park and to instead “establish a revised design to install natural grass and properly incorporate neighbor’s input” in a letter addressed to Malden’s Mayor and City Councillors. In solidarity with the Friends of Roosevelt Park, Alternatives for Community and Environment (ACE) and six other environmental organizations voiced concerns about health hazards of PFAS chemicals and unsafe heat, along with cost, the injustice of the exclusion of key stakeholders and the contradiction of the city’s own code on prohibiting impervious surfaces in open space. Citing well known health effects of PFAS – “forever chemicals linked to reproductive issues, increased cancer risk, weakened immune systems and high risk of obesity,” known to “hinder child development and growth,” found in the plastic of artifi cial turf carpet – ACE’s letter pointed out that the plan “would be especially concerning because of the park’s use by young sports leagues and proximity to the Salemwood Elementary School.” Another health concern is adding heat: “Cities like Malden should be taking steps to meet the demands of a warming climate, but the installation of an artifi cial turf fi eld at Roosevelt Park would contribute to the urban heat island eff ect,” added the letter.

Young Liam is having a outstanding freshman season playing lacrosse for Connecticut College. He's the 3rd leading scorer for the Camel’s with 22 goals and 4 assists while shooting 44%. His shots on goal percentage is an outstanding 78%. They played Wesleyan College on Wednesday (April 26) and with a win will earn the right to play #1 in the country, Tufts in Medford, on the following Saturday in the fi rst round of the playoff s. Marty, Liam’s dad, started Malden Youth Lacrosse with former Cemetery Director, Highland Cafe bartender, and renowned raconteur Jimmy Cahill 22 years ago. Liam's brother Sean, who plays Lacrosse at Belmont Hill, is currently #10 in the country and undefeated. Good products of Malden Youth Lacrosse. On a side note, Jayden Jean, Malden Firefighter Greg Jean’s son, is the off ensive coordinator of Bentley Lacrosse who just beat the #2 in the country, Adelphi. Congratulations guys! Best of luck! On another side note; Jimmy who?! I kid. It is said in Malden Musings... • Such a pleasure meeting longtime Maldonian Kathleen Nylin. Kathy won me over with just a short 10-minute visit - and not only because she loves my column! Her charm, her class, her wonderful personality hit me like a tsunami!

Here's hoping there is a full house of Maldonians in attendance to honor this trailblazing woman. • Here's one of those times I'd simply like to write something nice about a special person. Just in case he doesn't realize how much he is loved. Extra special Malden Musings shout out to a giant of a Maldonian, Johnny Marsinelli. A man I have looked up to (and feared at times) my whole life. A person I now call, friend. When his number got called Marse went off to war (Nam), just like that. Arriving back home to become a very important person in the community. Despite everything he went through during that hellish "confl ict" he thrived back home as mentor to generations of youngsters, married well, and became a dedicated and loving father to his son John. I'd like to emphasize, most importantly, he came home to become one of THE best fathers, embracing fatherhood like the heavyweight champ he is. Hey, don't get me wrong, he ain't no Ward Cleaver, but he is darn good nonetheless (insert great big smiley face)! Thanks, John, for all that you have contributed, all that you have accomplished, and all that you continue to accomplish. • Best of luck in retirement, Malden Fire Chief Bill Sullivan. Bill is a Malden lifer, his family going way back in Malden fi refi ghting history. The Chief joined the M.F.D. in 1987 moving up the ranks to become lieutenant, captain, deputy chief, and eventually (2020) fi re chief.

Together with her husband Eddie they owned the sports card, candy, and collectibles shop in Melrose called 'Sweet's Stuff .'

Page 4 THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, May 5, 2023 Malden House delegation votes to pass FY24 Budget Bill prioritizes addressing housing instability, food insecurity, shortages in early education, and workforce development to support families O n April 26, 2023, the Massachusetts House of Representatives unanimously passed H.3900, the Fiscal Year 2024 (FY24) budget. Funded at $56.2 billion, H.3900 addresses the critical needs of families and residents across the Commonwealth while dedicating funding to make our communities and state more affordable, livable and equitable. While taking into consideration the ending of COVID-era federal funding – and rising inflation nationwide – this spending bill represents a continued commitment to the people of Massachusetts and aims to put the state in a more competitive position in a post-pandemic world. “This year’s $56.2 billion budget prioritizes creating a more livable Commonwealth by addressing critical issues including food insecurity, housing instability, as well as increasing educational supports and access to workforce development opportunities,” said State Representative Steve Ultrino (D–Malden). “I am excited to see Malden community organizations receiving funding to continue their critical programs and services for our residents in need.

Lastly, thank you Speaker Ron Mariano and Chair Aaron Michlewitz for the leadership and hard work throughout this year’s budget process.” “Malden has secured funding for an array of important services in the 2023 budget. This important funding will help to improve housing, infrastructure, and public safety services,” said State Representative Paul Donato (D–Medford). “As always, it was great to work with Representative Lipper-Garabedian and Representative Ultrino, focusing on the most critical needs of the community to build an ever-improved Malden.” “With the Malden delegation, I am proud to have secured funding for the City of Malden including in the areas of housing security, public safety, and infrastructure,” said State Representative Kate Lipper-Garabedian (D– Melrose). “Additionally, among the many critical and responsive statewide investments in the House’s budget bill, I am thrilled to see ongoing historic funding in early education and childcare, a Kate Lipper-Garabedian State Representative top priority for which I advocated. And I’m glad to join the House in supporting universal free school meals, which would make Massachusetts the sixth state to make the program permanent.” The Malden House delegation has worked with leadership and other legislators to ensure the bill will provide financial support and much-needed resources to the Malden community. Representatives Ultrino, Donato and Lipper-Garabedian have successfully advocated for and secured $475,000 in local earmarks in the FY24 budget, which include the following: • $150,000 for Portal To Hope to develop programs combatting domestic violence and providing supportive services to survivors and victims of domestic violence • $100,000 for Housing Families Inc. to assist in their general operations • $75,000 for a new multi-utility vehicle for Malden’s Department of Public Works • $75,000 for Malden’s Pedestrian Safety Pilot Projects • $75,000 for Action for Boston Community Development’s Mobile Homeless Outreach Team While state revenue collections remain strong, the House legislators have supported this budget’s approach of integrating new revenues from the Fair Share Amendment and the recent tax relief package. Furthermore, the budget passed uses $1 billion in anticipated Fair Share revenue, funding that this budget splits evenly between education and transportation initiatives. Revenue from this change will supplement existing funding for education and transportation investments, and will be directed to a new Education and Transportation Fund, then distributed to a series of Education and Transportation-centered programs, including: • $161 million (M) for permanent Universal School Meals, making Massachusetts the sixth state nationwide to provide free Steve Ultrino State Representative school meals to all public-school students • $40M for C3 Childcare Stabilization Grants, bringing the total investments for C3 Grants to $490M • $20M for MassReconnect, which will provide free community college certificates and degrees to Massachusetts residents aged 25 or above who have yet to earn a college-level credential • $250M for MBTA Capital Investments • $65M for MBTA Workforce and Safety Reserve to address ongoing safety concerns identified by the Federal Transit Administration’s inspections Other key highlights included in the FY24 budget were: • $181M allocated to the Residential Assistance for Families in Transition (RAFT) program, which is a $31M increase from FY23 • $15M for the Early College program to help expand access to higher education pathways for high school students, representing a $5M increase from FY23 • $17.5M for Head Start grants, which provides comprehensive social, educational, physical, and emotional services for Malden families and youngsters • Elimination of asset limits for Medicare Savings Program eligibility • A two-year pilot program extending eligibility for ConnectorCare to applicants at or below 500% of the Federal Poverty Limit • No Cost Calls, which requires the Department of Corrections and House of Corrections to provide free phone calls to individuals committed to those facilities Following a review of the Governor’s budget proposal and a series of public hearings, on April 12, 2023, the FY24 budget proposal (H.3900) was introduced by Speaker Ronald Mariano and the House of Representatives’ Committee on Ways & Means. The House passed the budget, 1560, and it now goes to the Senate for consideration.

Page 6 THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, May 5, 2023 An intergenerational cooking class at the Senior Center By Karen Colón Hayes O r seniors asked for more intergenerational activities at the senior center, so I listened and acted! Together, we came up with the idea of a cooking activity because we all have shared stories of family and culture which often centered around the kitchen. Culture and food infl uence each other. In my family, food was a way of retaining and retelling our cultural identity and traditions through storytelling with both young and older family members. I want to create that interconnection in Malden and we began at the Malden Senior Center with an intergenerational cooking class. It was exactly how we hoped it would be! The young people were eager to learn and the older generation was eager to teach. We learned so much about each other. Our traditional foods were similar and we learned diff erent techniques on how to fold an empanada from folks who fold dumplings. Our youth learned the correct way to hull strawberries so there wasn’t any waste. As one senior put it, “because strawberries are expensive and it’s a shame not Law Offices of Terrence W.

There was an excitement in the room and I was told later that seniors felt useful and not ‘talked at’ but respected as elders who have a lot to teach. The benefi ts of programs like these are twofold. For children it includes making them more comfortable with older adults and removes stigma, as well as a fear of aging for children. For older adults, studies have shown that spending time with young children they report less depression and more joy in life. So, I will be scheduling another event in June which will be listed in the Senior Center Monitor Calendar. I will also be hosting offi ce hours. The time and location will be listed in the monitor as well- I want to hear from you!

I will continue fi ghting for our students to have access to the education they need and deserve, ensure our teachers have the tools they need to be eff ective and that every dollar spent is used responsibly because every young person should have the opportunity to succeed to the best of their abilities. I’ve talked with parents and Mayor Gary Christenson reads during Storytime. caregivers, heard the concerns and advocated for families to get the support they need.

Assistant Supt. Mertz on Tuesday explained that the Malden Public Schools proposal that her department and central administration had formulated for the city’s allocation totaled $88.6 million. With the $91.38 million proposed allocation by Mayor Christenson, that would leave $2,272,287 in additional funding – above the School Department’s initial request – where some pressing needs could be addressed, she said. “This would not have happened without the eff orts of our state delegation for the state funding portion and the Mayor’s Offi ce in providing the recommended allocation,” Assistant Supt. Mertz said. She detailed the initial plans for the expenditure of the additional $2.27 million in funding that is expected to be available to the Malden Public Schools. These would all be additions to what is already proposed the be funded: —Building monitors: all schools. —School culture officers: all schools. —Adjustment counselors: in some schools where needed. —Spanish teachers: Linden and Ferryway Schools. —Wilson Reading: Forestdale School. —Registered Behavioral Technician (RBT): Ferryway School. —Assistant Principal: Forestdale. (There has been only one for several years.) —Administrative Assistant: Forestdale School. —STEM Teacher: Forestdale School. —Math Teacher: High School. —Health Teacher: High School. —English Learner Coach: District. “These are all staffi ng additions to the classrooms,” Superintendent Dr. Ligia Noriega-Murphy said at the meeting. “We need ‘boots on the ground’ to support our existing staff and students and that is what we would be doing here.” The new staffing would encompass the entire school district, Ward 5 School Committee member Adam Weldai noted. Weldai, before the budget presentation, spoke on work already underway to address needs at the Early Learning Center (ELC). Meetings have been held with staff and ELC Principal Tamara Lawrence, he said, and plans are in place that would increase staff - ing in the form of seven new RBT personnel, the addition of a new classroom, the return of a fulltime Program Manager, the addition of a building monitor and other additions. “We needed to make that investment and we are committed to it,” Weldai said, adding that additional meetings specifi cally to address the ELC and its staffi ng are planned. “I still believe we are not getting our fair share of Chapter 70 aid,” Assistant Supt. Mertz said of the direct state aid received for education. “When you compare us to other similar communities, they are getting far more Chapter 70 funding. For instance, Chelsea has about 100 more students than Malden, and receives about $50 million more in Chapter 70 than we do.” She encouraged all to continue to advocate to change the formula and try to get more Chapter 70 funding for Malden. “The staff - ing we could provide and what we could do with that $50 million would be such a benefi t to our schools.” Ward 5 School Committee member Adam Weldai echoed her comments. “Now is the time we can be lulled into a sense of complacency with our funding sources seemingly providing what we need, but the numbers are going to change as the city’s required contribution percentage increases along with the Chapter 70 funding,” Weldai said. “Please, everyone – not just Malden residents – contact your state legislators and ask them to work to adjust and change the formula for determining Chapter 70 aid.” Mayor Christenson, who is chairperson of the School Committee, also spoke on this issue, noting that the community is grateful for the state delegation’s “diligence in pursuing funding for Malden’s schools,” particularly through the full funding of the Mass. Student Opportunity Act (SOA) as well as more Chapter 70 funding for this year. Malden State Senator Jason Lewis (D-5th Middlesex) is in his second term as chair of the Legislature’s Joint Committee on Education and authored the SOA. Malden State Representative Steven Ultrino also serves on that committee, as vice chair. Mayor Christenson also noted the eff orts of Malden Chief Strategy Offi cer Ron Hogan in researching and recommending actions regarding the Chapter 70 funding issue. **** Next up in the budget process is another Malden School Committee budget subcommittee meeting at 6:00 p.m. on Monday, May 8. Information on how to tune in will be on the School Department (www.maldenps. org) and City of Malden (www. cityofmalden.org) websites. A formal public hearing on the school budget proposal is also upcoming with information appearing on the same two websites.

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, May 5, 2023 Page 9 Mystic Valley Elder Services chosen to pilot Hospital-to-Home Program M ystic Valley Elder Services (MVES) is honored to be one of nine nonprofit organizations awarded funds to through the state’s new Hospital to Home Partnership Program. This new pilot initiative supports partnerships between hospitals and Aging Services Access Points (ASAPs). By strengthening communication and coordination with community providers, MVES and its partners will promote institutional diversion and increase discharge rates from hospital to home. The Hospital to Home initiative was launched by the Massachusetts Executive Offi ce of Health and Human Services (EOHHS) using three million in federal dollars made available through the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA). MVES will participate in two of the pilot programs that received $300,000 for two years. “As hospitals continue to face strain due to workforce shortages, it is critical that we fi nd new ways to better serve patients in their homes and communities,” said EOHHS Secretary Kate Walsh. “Through these partnerships, hospitals and local ASAPs will collaborate to better meet individual patient needs in home and community-based settings, improving health outcomes and alleviating pressure on hospital resources and staff .” MVES will serve as the lead entity for the Hospital to Home Pilot in partnership with AgeSpan and Tufts MelroseWakefield Hospital/Lowell General Hospital. MVES will also serve as a partner on the Hospital to Home Pilot led by Somerville-Cambridge Elder Services, which includes the Cambridge and Everett hospitals of Cambridge Health Alliance (CHA). Funding through both pilots will enable MVES to hire two dedicated hospital-to-home liaisons who will be embedded at Tufts MelroseWakefield and CHA Everett hospitals. Working in close communication and partnership with hospital discharge planning staff will enable MVES hospital-to-home liaisons to understand the immediate needs of patients and draw upon a deep range of knowledge to ensure safe, secure and quick transitions home. MVES hospital-to-home liaison staff will also remain in regular contact with the patient post-discharge to support transition and address any additional needs. “Together, we will make a positive impact on the ability of older adults to seamlessly transition from inpatient hospital stays to safe discharges back home,” said MVES Assistant Nurse Manager Lisa Jimenez. “Our staff are well trained to respond quickly to a wide variety of urgent community needs such as: coordinating and monitoring the provision of highly skilled personal and home care assistance to be available upon patient discharge; arranging for next-day delivery of culturally appropriate Meals on Wheels; restocking the person’s home with essential food items and toiletries; scheduling transportation to follow-up doctor appointments and more.” “MVES has a long history of working collaboratively with Tufts MelroseWakefield and CHA Everett hospitals to connect patients transitioning home with community-based services and supports they need to remain in the community,” explained MVES CEO Lisa Gurgone. “We are excited about the opportunity to work with our hospital and ASAP partners to reduce the rates of transitions to nursing facilities in our service area. We are grateful to the Commonwealth for funding this important innovation and empowering us to make a meaningful increase in hospital-to-home transitions.” About Mystic Valley Elder Services: Since 1975, MVES has partnered with individuals and caregivers across the Mystic Valley region to ensure that adults age 60 and older and people with disabilities have the support they need to live independently and with dignity.

Page 10 THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, May 5, 2023 GREATER BOSTON LEAGUE ROUNDUP: Malden’s McMahon dominates with 13 Ks in baseball shutout win, 5-0, over Everett Revere still unbeaten atop GBL Boys Volleyball standings; Malden also perfect (5-0); Tornado boys and girls tennis teams lead GBL race By Jason Mazzilli M alden High senior righthander Brandon McMahon has drawn many accolades in his high school career. He has twice been a league All-Star and also twice recognized as a Mass. Baseball Coaches Association State All-Star. With all that and a pile of outstanding performances under his belt, still, Wednesday was some of his best work. For sure. The lanky veteran was dominating and at the same time economical in a complete-game, 5-0 victory over visiting Everett at Pine Banks Park in Malden on Wednesday. In these days of mandated pitch count rules, McMahon hurled a bona fi de gem, going the distance for a complete-game shutout, featuring 13 strikeouts and 4 scattered hits. The most impressive statistic might have been the actual pitch count itself, as McMahon went the whole way on just 87 pitches. Malden could have scored more runs early, stranding 10 baserunners on the day, but was able to scratch across the necessary scores due to the hitting and baserunning eff orts of sophomores Aidan Brett and Bo Stead (RBI double) and juniors Jake Simpson, Ryan Coggswell and Ezechiel Noelsaint – all three of them co-captains along with McMahon. Freshman Billy Gavin also scored a run for Malden. “I felt really good all day and I knew I had to go the whole game today. I know a lot of players on the other team [Everett], and that was a big motivator for me today,” McMahon said afterward.

Page 12 THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, May 5, 2023 Call Malden High lacrosse star Chad Robertson ‘MR. 100’! Junior attackman hits 100-goal mark for career; leads league is scoring for second year By Steve Freker M ilestones are many in the high school sports world, and Malden High’s Chad Robertson just hit a big one in a recent win over Revere. On Thursday, Malden’s Robertson, a third-year varsity lacrosse player and a Tornado junior, tallied 6 of 7 goals for Malden in a comeback, 7-4 Greater Boston League victory over Revere. With his second goal of the afternoon at Pine Banks Park in Malden, Robertson hit the magical number of 100 for his career. Robertson has now tallied 104 goals for his career and is now in sight of the school’s AllTime Scoring record. That mark is now held by former Golden Tornados standout Zach Rufo, who fi nished a four-year All-Star career with 110 goals. Leading the Greater Boston League with over 30 goals, or about 4-5 goals per game, Robertson is expected to shatter that mark soon.

Riders are encouraged to use the updated MBTA Trip Planner tool (https://www.mbta.com/ trip-planner), the Alternative Service page (https://www.mbta. com/projects/alternative-service-options-during-speed-reMBTA | SEE PAGE 18 exclusion of key stakeholders from the planning of the park, and Malden’s own code against installing impervious surfaces in public open spaces. The long-term costs of artificial turf do not include the disposal and replacement of the shock pad and carpet every eight to 10 years. The Park’s adjacent neighbors and Salemwood Elementary School community members were not invited to help develop the plan but will have to bear the greatest burden of health and environmental consequences. Finally, “According to the city’s Open Space Plan, Roosevelt Park is permanently protected Open Space, and the City’s Code requires that “All Open Space shall be pervious.” Both the Synthetic Turf Council and the EPA define artificial turf as impervious, because “the rainwater it collects is most often redirected into the rain sewer system instead of being allowed to percolate into the soil.” Regional environmental justice and conservation organizations who signed on to the letter in solidarity with the Friends of Roosevelt Park are ACE, the Conservation Law Foundation, Beyond Plastics Greater Boston, the Friends of the Malden River, the Mystic River Watershed Association, Safe Healthy Playing Fields Massachusetts, and Wicked Cool Mystic. These organizations fight for clean air, land and water, along with equity, justice, health and well-being, in communities in Massachusetts and New England. They asked Malden officials to halt “current plans for the park and reevaluate with meaningful input from the surrounding community.” Like us on Facebook advocate newspaper Facebook.com/Advocate.news.ma

Page 14 THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, May 5, 2023 ~ Letter to the Editor ~ Open letter to the Malden City Council Finance Committee Dear Malden City Council Finance Committee, The Friends of Roosevelt Park are requesting the fi nance committee to delay a decision or not to approve an additional $2.5M for the Roosevelt Park Project. The funding for contamination removal should only be approved if it is tied to the installation of natural grass. The finance committee can make the fi rst decision or stake in the ground for tipping the scales of environmental and social justice back to a more balanced representation of equity. Please keep in mind all other park renovations across the City will be natural living grass and there was extensive community outreach for planning and design. Anything less than a plan for natural grass for Roosevelt Park is an injustice for this neighborhood and this school community. Timeline of Cost Increases for this project: 5-1-2018 $2.4M C P A Pre Application-Project Cost Projection 9-4-2018 $2.6M C P A Application 9-25-2020 $3.6M Proj - ect Increases (Additional $1.2M Section 108 Loan CBDG HUD) 4-25-2023 $6.1M Proj - ect Increases (Additional $2.5M requested by Mayor Christenson) Members of the Friends of Roosevelt Park have taken the time to research, compare and question the line item costs associated with this project. The latest increase of $2.5M should be further investigated by the fi nance committee before approving. What is the true cost analysis of grass vs artifi cial turf - installation, maintenance and cost replacement every 8-10 years for artifi cial turf? We implore you to ask these questions as well: 1. Why has nearly 700K already been spent on this project before any groundwork has actually taken place? Please review the line item costs and paid invoices. 2. How much will the proposed artifi cial turf cost today? The Adelaide Breed Bayrd Foundation approved $660K to cover the cost of artifi cial turf back in 2018/2019. What are they willing to contribute now? Has their Board of Directors approved an increase in price? 3. Why hasn’t the City of Malden sought out Brownfi eld Grant Funds as mentioned by Councillor Winslow in the Board of Health meeting? Councillor Winslow stated that the City could secure these funds to clean up the lead contamination? 4. Why hasn’t the City of Malden applied for PARC grant funding for this project? 5. Why hasn’t the City of Malden used ARPA funding to clean up the contamination? 6. Why did the City of Malden use a Section 108 CDBG loan when other funds were readily available? (PARC grant, ARPA, Brownfi eld grants) 7. Has the City secured funding from Rep. Katherine Clark’s offi ce as mentioned previously? Have Rep. Clark and Senator Markey reviewed the latest funding plan? 8. Has anyone on the council reached out to the Board of Health? No more funding should be approved before the Malden Board of Health has had an opportunity to make a recommendation as to whether artifi cial turf will be an undue health burden for the neighborhood and the Salemwood School children playing daily on this fi eld for recess, before and after school during their K-8 years at the school. Health concerns are related to the heat island eff ect caused by excessive heat being emitted from the artifi cial turf. Excessive heat is detrimental to young children, older people and those who are compromised due to various health issues. Additional health concerns include exposure to PFAS, off gassing, microplastics, sports related injury and skin abrasions due to contact with play on plastic turf. Artifi cial turf is an unregulated product. There are many associated health concerns as mentioned above. 9. There are several bills before the legislature directly related to the installation, recycling and safety of artifi cial turf, PFAS products and climate change mitigation. How will future legislation aff ect compliance with new legislation as well as costs of removing and disposing of artifi cial turf? Will products containing PFAS be more costly to dispose of? Will products made of plastic which are not being properly recycled be more costly to replace and remove? 10. What is a true cost analysis of natural grass versus artifi cial turf? Artifi cial turf has a useful life of 8-10 years, at which time it must be removed and replaced for an estimated current cost of $650k-750k ($750k+ in 2020 costs according to Steve O’Neil at a previous fi nance committee meeting). If a natural grass fi eld maintenance plan were to cost 25k per year, it would still be less costly than artifi cial turf. ($25k x 10yrs = $250k vs $750k to replace a new artifi cial turf fi eld) Wouldn’t it make more fi scal sense for the City of Malden to invest in a professional grass maintenance program to maintain all of Malden’s grass parks which we are investing millions of dollars to improve? 11. What is the utilization plan/schedule? (Malden Youth Soccer, high schools, Malden Recreation, private rentals) Approving an additional $2.5M to continue this project without doing a thorough investigation of spending, comparisons and cost projections is not prudent or responsible. Thank you for your consideration.

Page 18 THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, May 5, 2023 MBTA | FROM PAGE 13 Like us on Facebook advocate newspaper Facebook.com/Advocate.news.ma MASSHEALTH ELIGIBILITY OPERATIONS MEMO 23-12 bility purposes. Furthermore, in the event M assHealth has just released this operations memo in order to be consistent with federal guidelines when calculating the value of life estates and corresponding remainder interests. This memo supersedes operations memos 19-12 and 20-16 effective immediately. This is an important operations memo as caseworkers will now have to utilize the IRS Section 7520 Interest Rate Tables in order to value these interests instead of the Social Security Administration POMS (Program Operations Manual System) tables. As a result, the value attributed to a life estate interest will be much lower utilizing the 7520 Interest Rate Tables as compared to the Social Security Administration (SSA) tables. If, for example, a married couple had deeded a vacation home to a child and reserved a life estate, and the vacation home was not being rented out in order to argue that it is necessary for self-support thereby rendering the life estate interest a non-countable asset, the SSA table calculation would result in a significantly higher valuation placed upon the life estate interest. That higher life estate interest could then result in the married couple being over the asset limit for MassHealth eligithe real estate was to be sold, a much higher value would be placed upon the life estate interest under the SSA table which would result in a significant amount of cash going back in the name of the life tenant requiring a spend down on nursing home level care of that larger pool of cash. The calculation based upon the SSA table would result in less asset protection as a much smaller amount would be attributed to the remaindermen (i.e. the children). It should be noted that if rental real estate operates in a cash flow profit position, the life estate interest with respect to that real estate will not be considered a countable asset. Upon the death of the life tenant, the real estate will escape estate recovery as MassHealth can only recover benefits paid from the probate estate of the recipient of the benefits. MassHealth will now use the IRS tables in order to calculate the amount of the gifted remainder interest for purposes of calculating the ineligibility period for MassHealth benefits. Once the five year look-back period has expired, it does not matter how much the remainder interest was valued at. The Massachusetts Chapter of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys has worked hard to persuade MassHealth to issue this recent eligibility operations memo which in fact is consistent with how it valued life estates and remainder interests for many previous years.

May 05, 2023 aavvyvy S avy avvy S oiorenniioor nior by Jim Miller How to Choose and Use a Walking Cane Dear Savvy Senior, I have some hip and back problems and could use a walking cane to help me get around. Is there anything I should know about canes before I buy one? Limping Linda Dear Linda, When it comes to choosing a cane, most people don’t give it much thought, but they should. Walking canes come in many diff erent styles, shapes and sizes today, so you need to take into account your needs and preferences to ensure you choose one that’s appropriate for you. Here are some tips that can help. Types of Canes The fi rst thing you need to consider is how much support you need. That will help you determine the kind of cane you choose. The three basic types of canes you’ll have to choose from include: 1. Straight canes: These are basic, single point canes that typically incorporate a rounded “crook” handle or “L-shaped” ergonomic handle. Usually made of lightweight aluminum or wood, most of the aluminum models are adjustable in height and some even fold up. 2. Off set-handle canes: These also are single point straight canes but come with a swan neck curve in the upper part of the shaft that puts the user’s weight directly over the cane tip for added stability. These canes are typically aluminum, adjustable-height and come with a fl at, soft grip handle that’s easy on the hands. Some straight canes and off set-handle canes also come with triple or quad tipped bases that can add gripping support and allow the cane to stand up on its own when you let go, which is very convenient. Both straight and off set-handle canes are best suited for people with a slight walking impairment. 3. Quad canes: These work best for people who need maximum weight bearing and support. Quad canes come with four separate tips at the base, they usually have an off set fl at handle, and can stand up on its own. Fitting the Cane Once you decide on the type of cane, you need to make sure it has the weight capacity to support you, and it fi ts your height. To do this, stand up with your arms hanging straight down at your side. The top of the cane should line up with the crease in your wrist, so your arm is slightly bent at the elbow when you grip the cane. The cane should also have a rubber tip at the bottom to prevent slipping. A worn or torn rubber tip is dangerous, so check the tip frequently to ensure it’s in good condition and replace it when necessary. The grip is also very important, so choose one that’s ergonomically designed, or one that has a molded rubber or foam grip that’s comfortable to hold on to. And if you travel much, consider getting a folding cane that can be packed or stored away easily. How to Use When using a cane, it should always be held in the hand opposite of the leg that needs support. For example, if your knee pain is on your left side, you should use the cane in your right hand. The cane should then move forward as you step forward with the bad leg. If you have to go upstairs, you should lead with the good leg. And when you go downstairs, you should put your cane on the step fi rst and then step down with your bad leg. The Mayo Clinic off ers a slide show at MayoClinic.com/health/ canes/HA00064 that will show you how to choose and use a cane. It’s also a smart idea to work with a physical therapist. Where to Buy You can buy canes at drugstores, discount retailers, medical supply stores and online, usually between $10 and $50. You’ll also be happy to know that Medicare covers canes with a written prescription from a physician. Send your senior questions to: Savvy Senior, P.O. Box 5443, Norman, OK 73070, or visit SavvySenior.org. Jim Miller is a contributor to the NBC Today show and author of “The Savvy Senior” book.
