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! Very happy to meet you, Kathy. • Helen Nordquist update...since her 2019 induction into the Golden Tornado Club Hall of Fame, Nordie at age 91, has moved into assisted living donating all her Malden memorabilia to the Malden Historical Society.So, the focus of the Society's annual meeting on May 2 will be a presentation by Linda Glover on Nordie's life story which started in the Malden school system.

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. That is quite a story, 36 years serving the city he grew up in and the city he loves. Mazel Tov, my friend. I'll see you around the neighborhood! • Nancy Sweet was a "Friend of Malden." Together with her husband Eddie they owned the sports card, candy, and collectibles shop in Melrose called 'Sweet's Stuff .' Many Maldonians spent many hours chatting up Nancy and Ed as they dispensed words of wisdom along with penny candy to generations of neighborhood children. Nancy was a wonderful and compassionate woman. She will be missed. May your memory be a blessing. • Where else but Anthony's on Canal St; the Paesani Club Annual Polenta Party, May 18th.
