Wednesday’s taping focused on one of the longest-serving members of Congress in history, as Sen. Markey – first elected as a U.S. Rep. from Malden in 1976 – approaches 50 years serving in Washington, D.C. Markey recalled a kaleidoscope of Malden memories while seated in front of a true local gem of a building. Coincidentally, it was on the lawn of this same library where Markey, who turns 75 on July 11, celebrated his impressive primary win over Democratic challenger Joseph Kennedy in September 2020. When he was finished with that portion of filming, Sen. Markey led the crew directly across Salem Street to another iconic local building, Malden High School. There he showed Underwood and the Boston 25 crew the impressive mural which displays great moments in Malden history, for about a 1/10th of a mile stretch along the side of the building. Sen. Markey also led the group into the MHS courtyard, where he introduced Underwood and crew to the Louise May Stokes Fraser memorial sculpture honoring the 1928 MHS alumna who went on to become the first Black female U.S. Olympian. Known as “The Malden Meteor,” Stokes Fraser participated in 1932 and 1936 as a member of the U.S. Olympics Women’s Track Team. While visiting Malden High School, Senator Markey was greeted by MHS Principal Chris Mastrangelo and Malden Superintendent of Schools John Oteri. The trio discussed both Stokes Fraser’s legacy and the present status of Malden High School as the most diverse high school in Massachusetts as well as the 16th most diverse in the United States.

Page 6 THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, June 4, 2021 Malden Today, Tomorrow and Yesterday – concrete baby steps By Peter F. Levine M y destination: “The Sager Family Foundation and Traveling Roadshow” located in a majestic high rise overlooking the Boston Common – and the Charles River stretching as far as the eye can see – Bobby Sager’s comfy home and sanctuary. I have a sit down scheduled with “The Philanthropist” himself on this sunny Friday afternoon at his humble (10,000+ square feet) abode not far from where the old “Sugar Shack” once stood; two Malden boys getting acquainted. Bobby (Sager) and his family are currently on a short hiatus recharging their souls in anticipation of their next challenge. Bobby and his family, through their foundation, go around the world fighting the good fight, from the mundane, such as living in a tent in Karachi and sharing a toilet with 40 monks in the Himalayas, to important stuff like working alongside President Kagame in Rwanda or discussing science education with the Dalai Lama in India. And on occasion enjoying the moment by joining forces with the likes of Bruce Springsteen, Sting, Tom Hanks and Lady Gaga spreading the awareness gospel – most importantly, helping people help themselves in just about every hot spot around the world. What I took from our hour plus conversation was that although he is making a difference around the globe on a grander scale than most, he feels we can all make a difference with what he calls “concrete baby steps.” According to Bobby each one of us making a small difference in our own community is as vital as the work he has taken on. A Malden slice of life...It’s the random acts of kindness and small gestures in life – those “concrete baby steps” that Bobby Sager preaches about all the time – that make Malden such a great place to call home. Read on: Henry Figueroa is a maintenance engineer at Malden High School. He came across a turkey nest maybe a month back behind the high school building hidden behind a bush. Henry contacted Animal Control Maven Kevin Alkins because there were quite a few eggs in the nest. He was concerned for the safety of mom (since named “Tilda” by one of the teachers, by the way) and her future chicks. He made sure to check on mom and make sure no students bothered her or the nest. The chicks finally hatched. Henry’s significant other Joanne (Settemio) congratulated him on his new status: stepfather! According to Joanne the 11 chicks are the “cutest things she ever saw and well-guarded” as Henry and seated at the booth or standing behind their teammates anchored by their coaches. Some names you will recognize; some you will not. Doesn’t matter. It is pure delight to the eyes. Sgt. George Mancini is the manager and Joe Barahona is the coach. The young ballplayers included Jimmy & Joey Barahona, Guy & Steve Catallo, Billy Carbonneau, Billy “Cas” Casamento, Diego “Dickie” Barricelli, Gennaro Funicella, Jackie Gagliardi, Johnny Brandano, Ronny Golini, Billy & Peter Gennetti, Paul Mancini, Bobby Marinelli, Ronny Moore, Bobby Moro, Anthony Pagliccia, Carl Pappo, Phil Scaramozzino, Anthony & Paul Sestito, Joe Teta and Ray Tricca. A short update on a couple of the children, many who made a significant impact in Malden over the years, 68 years later: Anthony Sestito was killed in action in Vietnam on the same day in June of 1969 as his neighbor Kevin Crowe.

You do not even have to be from Malden or to have lived here very long to appreciate it. You just have to be a human being. The children in the photo remind me of what we all once were those many years ago: filled with youthful innocence, imbued with the joy of being young, playing baseball and having friends. Their smiling faces, priceless. The playfulness in their demeaner you can spot all the way across Malden and through the newsprint. The Spartans won the minor league baseball championship this summer. They were sponsored by Topsy’s Chicken which, I believe, was a diner in Malden Square that specialized in, chicken. The photo is taken at a booth in Topsy’s. Twenty-three boys altogether (yes, 23!) are last year to COVID-19. Dickie Barricelli, Jackie Gagliardi and Johnny Brandano are thick as thieves to this very day and play bocce together at the IACC. Joe Teta went on to become a local Edgeworth legend. As you may have noticed, there a lot of Italian last names. They all hailed from Edgeworth when Italian and Irish mostly populated the Ward. Twenty-three names! Think about that for a moment. Bob Rotondi remembers those days when a (minor league) baseball team in Malden could field 23 players – unfortunately for youth baseball, a number unheard of today.

Google Bobby and tell me “concrete baby steps” and his “eyeball to eyeball” philanthropy aren’t building blocks for a better future around the world. Want to hear something really cool? Information you need to know about Bobby “The Philanthropist” Sager: Bobby’s son Shane plays harmonica in Sting’s touring band. Sting of Police fame. Shane of Sager Family Traveling Foundation and Roadshow fame. Did you know...that Bobby (Sager) is an internationally acclaimed photographer? His images (and back story) of sevenyear-old Moses, a child soldier in Rwanda forced to commit murder, are breathtaking. His photos of young Moses with his only possession, a soccer ball put together with trash, plastic bags and string, are heartbreaking as well as amazing. Gleaned a great idea from Facebook last week (concrete baby steps?). A lot of Maldonians worried after the first time using the new recycle bin that access to the redeemable cans and bottles would be difficult at best for those who make a living retrieving them. Somebody on Facebook suggested using the old recycle bin for easy access to the returnable. Problem solved. Thank you for the suggestion. Did you know...that a 175-pound meteorite that landed in Ghana now sits in Bobby Sager’s living room at his apartment in Boston? Fascinating collectible. Call me a sentimental old fool but Neal “Mr. Concrete Baby Steps” Anderson’s three minute, 26 second closing statement at last week’s City Council meeting announcing that he will not run for his seat again hit me like a Ron “Bevy” Drinkwater uppercut. I like and respect Neal very much. I/we will miss him a great deal. Mazel Tov, my friend! “This is the end, beautiful friend, this is the end, my only friend, the end” – man, oh man did I blow it last week! In my comments praising retired Malden Police Officer Frankie Spinelli and his ex-colleague Capt. Paul Hopkins, I neglected to mention possibly the most important Malden police officer in the past 50 years. He almost singlehandedly helped the force shed the negative image associated with them from the 1970s, paving the way for the MPD that we all praise today. I mentioned Frankie, John Crannell, Kevin Molis, Gary Hennessey and George Grimes but left out (the late) Al “Aldo” Ray. Check out last week’s Malden Advocate for a detailed explanation on why my omission was so glaring. Thank you, Mr. Ray, for your sacrifice. Postscript 1: “I have seen Maplewood change from a homogenous village to a cosmopolitan community. The Maplewood of today is better and more interesting than the Maplewood of over a generation ago. I deplore the tendency to compare the Maplewood of the present with the Maplewood of the past to the disadvantage of the former. Everything in Maplewood can be improved. That is true of every other place in the country. That is the job of those of us who live here. We cannot be content and cease to strive for better things. I was brought here an infant in arms. I have never seen the day I had any desire to live anywhere else, nor can I conceive of any other place having sufficient attractions to cause me to move out of here.” Frank A.

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, June 4, 2021 Page 9 LOSS | FROM PAGE 1 Simon Daponta, at only age 19, probably had more friends than most folks who were decades older than the popular Malden teen might accumulate through the years. Simon also had a close family who loved him dearly and supported him through his formative years right through to the present, where he was just at the doorstep of young adulthood. That is why it hit the Malden community and those at Malden High School so very hard, stopping many in their tracks with disbelief, when news spread of his devastating loss in a tragic motor vehicle accident on Friday afternoon, May 28. Malden High School Principal Chris Mastrangelo was busy Friday afternoon with last-minute preparations for the first MHS Senior Prom since 2019, a glittering, down-home affair to be held right on the campus of MHS, when he got the terrible news. “I was devastated. Simon was just a great kid in so many ways, who brightened up our school and helped bring so much happiness to his classmates and teammates in his years here,” Mastrangelo said. The MHS principal said he had to sit down and collect his thoughts before sharing the tragic news with Superintendent John Oteri and the MHS administrative team. “We had so much excitement and goodwill all week … for the Prom, and then we heard about Simon’s passing the same day,” Mastrangelo said. “We certainly had heavy hearts that evening. Everyone loved Simon and our hearts go out to his family and friends.” According to Massachusetts State Police (MSP) reports, Daponta was the driver of a 2009 Freightliner M2 box truck that crashed into the grass shoulder of the highway on Route I-93 southbound near Rt. 35 in Tewksbury at about 12:15 p.m. on Friday. According to MSP, he apparently fell asleep at the wheel and the truck drifted right, hit an electrical box and rolled over onto the driver’s side. According to MSP, Daponta suffered fatal injuries while the two passengers in the truck’s cab, a 41-year-old Medford man and a 29-year-old Taunton man, were not injured in the crash. No other vehicles were involved in the crash. The crash continues to be investigated by Troop A of the MSP, the MSP Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Section and the MSP Crime Scene Services Section.

He was a member of the Class of 2020 and graduated at an outdoor ceremony with limited attendance in August, in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. It was a joyous day, one of the few traditional events able to be reclaimed for that graduating class. Simon was a two-sport standout, excelling as a league All-Star for the MHS Varsity Golf Team under Coach Bob Malatesta and also the Varsity Boys Lacrosse Team led by coach Jon Copithorne. Both coaches said they and the teammates who knew Simon were hard-hit by the tragic news. MHS Principal Mastrangelo and Supt. Oteri both informed the high school community and the districtwide community of the devastating news over the weekend. Mastrangelo said grief counselors were made available beginning Tuesday morning when students and staff returned to school and the long holiday Memorial Day weekend, and they were in place for those who needed support the remainder of this week. Many from Malden High School and from the Malden community attended a celebration of Simon’s life held Wednesday night at Anthony’s of Malden. Born on February 5, 2002, in Melrose, Simon was the beloved son of Steven and Helen Daponta, cherished brother of Aidan and his wife, Lauren, of Boxford and his sister, Emily Daponta of Malden. Simon grew up in Malden but was surrounded by a loving family near and far. Simon will be lovingly remembered by many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends. He was predeceased by his grandparents: Julio and Loretta Daponta of Everett and Larry and Phyllis Quinn of Dublin. Arrangements are being handled by the Spadafora Funeral Home (865 Main St., Malden). An obituary may be viewed at www.spadaforafuneral.com.

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, June 4, 2021 Page 15 "The efficient Senate budget Beacon Hill Roll Call By Bob Katzen A note from Bob Katzen, Publisher of Beacon Hill Roll Call: Join me this Sunday night and every Sunday night between 5 p.m. and 8 p.m. for my talk show “The Bob Katzen Baby Boomer and Gen X Show.” Jump in my time capsule and come back to the simpler days of the 1950s, 1960s, 1970s and 1980s. On Sunday, June 6, we will be celebrating our one-year anniversary with a special episode of the show. There are many ways you can listen to the show from anywhere in the world: • If you have a smart speaker, simply say, “Play WMEX on Audacy.com” • Download the free Audacy app on your phone or tablet • Listen online at www.wmexboston.com • Or tune into 1510 AM if you have an AM radio. • Visit us at www.bobkatzenshow.com THE HOUSE AND SENATE: Beacon Hill Roll Call records local senators’ votes on roll calls from the week of May 24-28. All Senate roll calls are on proposed amendments to the $47.72 billion fiscal 2022 budget. There were no roll calls in the House last week. This was the Senate’s second state budget in the COVID-19 era and most senators participated virtually from their homes or offices. Of the 923 amendments filed by senators only 15 came to a roll call vote. Many others were simply approved or rejected one at a time on voice votes without debate. To move things along even faster, the Senate also did its usual “bundling” of many amendments. Instead of acting on all the amendments one at a time, hundreds of the proposed amendments are bundled and put into two piles—one pile that will be approved and the other that will be rejected-with a single vote on each pile. Senate President Karen Spilka, or the senator who is filling in for her at the podium, orchestrates the approval and rejection of the bundled amendments with a simple: “All those in favor say ‘aye,’ those opposed say ‘no.’ The ayes have it and the amendments are approved.” Or “All those in favor say ‘aye,’ those opposed say ‘no.’ The no’s have it and the amendments are rejected.” Senators don’t actually vote yes or no, and, in fact, they don't say a word. The outcome was predetermined earlier behind closed doors. process this year reflected lots of careful work by our Ways and Means Chair, Michael Rodriques, and our Senate President, Karen Spilka, to build consensus in the weeks before the budget," said Senate President Pro Tempore Sen. Will Brownsberger (D-Belmont). Despite repeated requests from Beacon Hill Roll Call, Senate President Karen Spilka's office did not respond to a request to comment on the bundled amendments and the small number of roll calls. And no response was received from Spilka's leadership team of Sens. Cindy Creem (D-Newton), Joan Lovely (D-Salem), Mike Barrett (D-Lexington) and Sal DiDomenico (D-Everett). "Roll call requests are based on a number of factors that are the subject of both continuing and contemporaneous discussions within the caucus based on specific issues," said GOP Minority Leader Bruce Tarr (R-North Reading). “[The process] more accurately highlights the increasingly efficient use of the legislative rubber stamp,” said Chip Ford, executive director of Citizens for Limited Taxation. “Massachusetts doesn't need the cost of 200 legislators when a handful decide all legislation before it comes for a vote. If the three token 'loyal opposition' Republican senators weren’t taking up space taxpayers could at least save the ‘leadership stipends’ they collect.” “This type of process was not the norm only several years ago," said Massachusetts Fiscal Alliance executive director Paul Craney. "Over the last few years, with new legislative leadership, they rush through votes, often don’t record the votes and don’t allow the public to gain access to what is happening because most of the important work is done behind closed doors. With that being said, the state Senate is much more transparent than Speaker Ron Mariano and Republican Brad Jones in the House. The House is arguably the most opaque legislature in America.” $47.72 BILLION FISCAL 2022 BUDGET (S 3) Senate 40-0, approved a $47.72 million fiscal 2022 state budget for the fiscal year that begins July 1, 2021. Senators added on an additional $63.7 million in spending during three days of debate on the Senate floor. The House recently approved its own version of the budget. A House-Senate conference committee will hammer out a compromise version. “This is an extraordinarily hopeful budget, designed to get us ‘back to better,’” said Senate President Karen Spilka (D-Ashland). “The Massachusetts Senate vowed to act on what we learned from the COVID-19 public health crisis and invest in areas that lift up our children, families and seniors across all communities -- and that is exactly what this budget does.” Mike Rodrigues (D-Westport), Chair of the Senate Committee on Ways and Means said, “The Senate has charted a hopeful path forward this week and passed a fiscally responsible fiscal Year 2022 budget that makes investments to expand educational opportunity, safeguard the health and wellness of our most vulnerable, support our children and families and meet the needs of our post-pandemic economy. “The budget that we passed today focuses on the future and ensures that every resident, business, and family can find success in a post-pandemic Massachusetts,” said Sen. Patrick O’Connor (R-Weymouth), Ranking Minority Member of the Senate Committee on Ways and Means. “The past year has been difficult for so many, and this budget strives to put in place programs designed to recover from the effects of COVID-19. Now is the time for us to rebuild and make the commonwealth an even better place to call home.” (A “Yes” vote is for the budget). Sen. Jason Lewis Yes TAX DEDUCTION FOR REMOTE LEARNING SUPPLIES (S 3) Senate 5-34, rejected an amendment that would provide up to a $500 tax deduction for any K-12 teachers’ expenses they paid for the costs of remote teaching their students. Eligible expenses include professional development courses taken related to the curriculum, books, supplies, computer equipment and for personal protective equipment, disinfectant and other supplies used for the prevention of the spread of COVID-19. Amendment supporters said it is unfair that teachers have to personally pay from their own pockets to cover for these costs. He noted that a recent survey showed that teachers spent an average of $745 was spent of their own money on learning materials. Amendment opponents said they support reimbursing these teachers but argued a tax deduction is not the best way to do it. They noted the state should use some of the billions of dollars in federal funds it receives under the Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief Fund and directly reimburse the teachers. (A “Yes” vote is for the amendment allowing a $500 deduction. A “No” vote is against it.) Sen. Jason Lewis No ALLOW FARMERS A TAX DEDUCTION FOR DONATING FOOD (S 3) Senate 6-33, rejected an amendment that would give a taxpayer who is in the trade or business of farming and makes a charitable contribution of food to a nonprofit food organization a deduction on their income tax return for up to 25 percent of the value of the food. The amendment also regulates the contributions and sets standards that the food quality must meet. Amendment supporters said the deduction will help these generous farmers and the charities. They noted that the federal government and several states already allow this deduction. Amendment opponents said the state cannot afford the revenue loss in a budget that is tight and still relies on money from the Rainy Day Fund. They noted the budget delays the implementation of the overall charitable deduction that was discontinued in 2001 and argued it is not time to pick and choose a specific group of taxpayers who will receive a charitable deduction. (A “Yes” vote is for the amendment allowing the charitable deduction for farmers. A “No” vote is against it.) Sen. Jason Lewis No ADDITIONAL $3 MILLION FOR LOCAL BOARDS OF HEALTH (S 3) Senate 39-0, approved an amendment increasing funding for local boards of health by $3 million (from $10 million to $13 million). Amendment supporters said that these grants will improve public health protections across the state by strengthening local capacity and supporting sharing of services among cities and towns. “The pandemic made clear what has long been true: Protecting our health requires strengthening investments at the local level,” said sponsor Sen. Jo Comerford (D-Northampton). “In our commonwealth, every municipality has their own board of health or health department. These funds will decrease inequities between communities and promote better health for everyone.” (A “Yes” vote is for the $3 million increase in funding). Sen. Jason Lewis Yes ADDITIONAL $508,419 FOR DOMESTIC VIOLENCE PREVENTION AND SURVIVOR SERVICES (S 3) Senate 39-0, approved an amendment increasing funding for Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Prevention and Survivor Services by $508,419 (from $50,874,714 to $50,366,295). “What many people don't realize is that a consequence of the pandemic has been a significant increase in instances of domestic abuse,” said sponsor Sen. Mike Moore (D-Millbury). “As a result, there has been an increase in individuals seeking services provided by the Executive Office of Health and Human Services. It is critical that we provide more funding for these services so that access to care remains available for survivors of domestic abuse and sexual assault in the commonwealth." (A “Yes” vote is for the $508,419 increase in funding). Sen. Jason Lewis Yes $500,000 TO IMPROVE MATERNAL AND NEWBORN HEALTH OUTCOMES (S 3) Senate 38-1, approved an amendment that would provide $500,000 for the Perinatal-Neonatal Quality Improvement Network (PNQIN) of Massachusetts that works with hospitals and maternal health organizations to eliminate disparities in maternal morbidity and mortality. “I filed [the] amendment … to provide funding to PNQIN because I believe that it is every person’s right to build a happy and healthy family in the commonwealth of Massachusetts,” said amendment sponsor Sen. Harriette Chandler (D-Worcester). “An essential element of PNQIN’s mission is to fight and eliminate long standing racial disparities in maternal mortality and to improve health outcomes of all pregnant people and their children. PNQIN is at the forefront of maternal health equity, and their work will unequivocally bring us closer to a commonwealth full of happy and healthy parents and children.” “I have a strong belief that the practice of earmarking funds for private organizations within the budget leads to more harm than good in our political system,” said Sen. Sonia Chang-Diaz, the only senator to vote against the amendment. “Although the PNQIN does important work, and I appreciate Sen. Chandler's championing of this worthy cause, I believe government works better when the Legislature sticks to its role of setting categories of funding priorities, and I respect the executive branch agencies’ responsibility to make comparisons among projects and service providers to choose the organizations that best carry out those priorities. As such, I have a policy of voting against earmarks when it comes to setting budget priorities.” (A “Yes” vote is for the $500,000. A “No” vote is against it.) Sen. Jason Lewis Yes ADDITIONAL $500,000 FOR SECURITY FOR SCHOOLS AND HOUSES OF WORSHIP (S 9) Senate 39-0, approved an amendment increasing funding by $500,000 (from $1 million to $1.5 million) for security and enhancements for at-risk houses of worship, schools, community centers and other nonprofit institutions. This includes the installation of security cameras, enhanced lighting, ballistic doors BEACON | SEE PAGE 22

Page 16 THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, June 4, 2021 Malden High baseball tops Everett, 7-4, for first GBL win Cohen, McMahon lead way on the mound; Jordan, Ortega and Noelsaint lead offense By Jason Mazzilli T here were two game balls to be bestowed on a pair of players following Malden High baseball's 7-4 win over visiting Everett at Kezer Field in Malden Tuesday. That was due to a superb, "tag team" pitching performance by Golden Tornado junior righthander Shai Cohen and sophomore righty Brandon McMahon. Cohen hurled the first four innings and scattered four hits. A few walks and some great base running by the Everett Gibbs brothers (Brandon, 2-for-4, 5 stolen bases and Brian, 1-for-3, 4 stolen bases) led to some Everett scoring after Malden had taken a 3-0 lead after two innings. Cohen pitched tough and escaped a pair of situations in the first four innings where Everett could have potentially tacked on more runs. "Shai (Cohen) has done an excellent job in both of his two starts," said Malden High 5thyear head coach Steve Freker. "Today we backed him up with some scoring and all-around excellent defense." McMahon came on in relief to start the top of the fifth inning and was simply dominating. The big 6-2, 200 righty tossed all zeroes over three complete innings, allowing just one hit, walked two and struck out seven. "What a job Brandon did, but it's really no surprise, because he's been doing it all year," Coach Freker said. "His earned run average is 1.25 and he has allowed only five hits in 12 innings of relief so far. He's really PING-PONG | FROM PAGE 3 on Mondays through Thursdays. “Many elders have been so excited about this,” said Du. “They have been asking me for months when we’ll get this program started.” “Many in our community – including Asian American elders – have been eager to find recreational opportunities after a year of lockdown,” said GMAACC Program Director Dr. Jenny Hsi. “With more people getting vaccinated and restrictions being lifted, we are excited to provide The tag team pitching of junior Shai Cohen, right, and sophomore Brandon McMahon, left, carried the Golden Tornados baseball team to a 7-4 win over Everett in Malden on Wednesday.(Advocate Photo) given us a chance to win in all of the games he's appeared on the mound." With the win, Malden improved to 2-4 overall, 1-2 in the Greater Boston League (GBL). Everett is still seeking its first win.

On Wednesday, there was only one defensive error and plenty of great defensive plays. Malden fans got a glimpse of what to expect in the very first inning when senior captain Mike Mathes made a spectacular catch in centerfield, on a full run and dive, going to his right. "Mike (Mathes) saved two runs right there," Coach Freker said."That was one of the best outfield catches ever made by anyone I've ever coached," added Coach Freker, who has coached over 600 high school games in all. Malden's middle infield of senior captain and shortstop Liam Jordan and junior second baseman Shawn Bartholomew also played strong all game, making every play on a succession of hard-hit balls by Everett batters. Senior captain Clifton Noelsaint made one of the plays of the game when he nailed an Everett runner at the plate with s perfect throw from left field to junior catcher Aidan Jordan, who applied the tag and stamped out a Crimson Tide rally, "That was a huge play. They (Everett) had just taken the lead (4-3) for the first time and that run would have given them a bigger lead," Coach Freker said. Malden came right back with a big rally in the bottom of the fourth inning, scoring three times with two out to re-take the lead at 6-4. After junior Luke Zubryzicki and Mathes drew key walks to start the inning, junior Sam Ortega (2-for-3) laid down a perfect sacrifice bunt to move up the runners. Junior Solarzano mashed an RBI single into centerfield to score both runners, and Liam Jordan then hit a bomb triple way over everything to onehop the fence in deep left field to Malden ahead, 6-4. Malden added an insurance run in the sixth inning when Mathes walked, stole second and then stole third, scoring when the throw down went into left field making it 7-4 Malden. McMahon took the reins and steered Malden to the win, striking out four of the last five batters he faced. ***** Malden dropped a 5-2 nonleague game on the road to Greater Lawrence on Tuesday and now faces one of the busiest schedules in the state.

First, I would like to say the Tot Lot looks wonderful. Dedicating it to long time Malden resident Joan Callahan was so deserving of her. The issue I as a resident of ward 6 am having is the plan we as residents were shown last year by both councilors (David) Camell and (Stephen) Winslow was not what has come to fruition. The field at Trafton Park has been left in deplorable condition. Please, councillors Camell and Winslow; where did this $400,000 go to? The crown jewel of Maplewood has been left in complete disarray and cannot be used by the children of Malden in any way. As residents, this is not what you both put forth to us. Leaving Trafton Park unusable this season is unacceptable. I have text Councillor Winslow multiple times and you choose to ignore them. I have requested a meeting with you both to discuss these issues and Councillor Camell, you flat out denied me and the residents of ward 6 any meeting to discuss these serious issues. Thank you, Kevin Larson 58 yr. Resident of Malden

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, June 4, 2021 Page 17 Community input sought in public review of local police 'use of force' policies Informational ZOOM public meeting set for June 10 at 6:30 p.m. Special to the Advocate A national conversation is taking place on the role of policing in American communities. Protests have surged across the country in the past few years, starting with Michael Brown’s death at the hands of police in 2014 in Ferguson, MO and now following the recent murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis, MN. As part of the Mayor’s UniteMalden2020 initiative, Mayor Christenson signed the Obama Foundation’s “Reimagining Policing Pledge” and committed to the following actions: REVIEW your police use of force policies. ENGAGE your communities by including a diverse range of input, experiences, and stories in your review. REPORT the findings of your review to your community and seek feedback. REFORM your community’s police use of force policies. An advisory group was formed to review the Malden Police Department’s use of force policy by navigating these 4 steps and making recommendations. A critical stage of the process is to gather feedback from the community and include their input on the recommendations. Members of the community are urged to learn more about the use of force of policy and the recommendations and to fill out a survey which is found at: https://www.cityofmalden.org/741/UniteMalden-2020 The information is translated in different languages.

Page 18 THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, June 4, 2021 Savvy Senior by Jim Miller How to Downsize Your Home for a Move Dear Savvy Senior, What tips can you offer for downsizing? My husband and I would like to relocate from our house into a retirement community condo near our daughter but need to get rid of a lot of personal possessions before we can move. Overwhelmed Willa Dear Willa, The process of weeding through a house full of stuff and parting with old possessions is difficult and overwhelming for most people. A good place to start is to see if your kids, grandkids or other family members would like any of your unused possessions. Whatever they don’t want, here are a few tips and services that may help you downsize. Sell It Selling your stuff is one way to get rid of your possessions and pad your pocketbook at the same time. Selling options may include consignment shops, a garage sale, estate sale and selling online. Consignment shops are good for selling old clothing, household furnishings and decorative items – they typically get 30 to 40 percent of the sale price. A good old-fashion garage sale is another option, or for large-scale downsizing you could hire an estate sale company to come in and sell your items. See EstateSales.net and EstateSales.org to locate options in your area. Some estate companies will even pick up your stuff and sell it at their own location – they typically take about 35 percent of the profits. Selling online is also a great option and opens you up to a wider audience. The OfferUp app (OfferUp.com), Facebook Marketplace (Facebook.com/marketplace), Craigslist (Craigslist.org) and the CPlus for Craigslist app (Yanflex.com) are great options for selling locally, which can eliminate the packing and shipping costs and hassle. These websites and apps also don’t take a cut of your sales, but you’re responsible for connecting with your buyer and making the exchange of money and goods. Donate It If you itemize on your tax returns, donating your belongings to charitable organizations is another way to downsize and get a tax deduction. The Salvation Army (SAtruck.org, 800-728-7825) will actually come to your house and pick up a variety of household items, including furnishings and clothing. Goodwill (Goodwill.org) is another good option to donate to but they don’t offer pickup services. If your deductions exceed $500, you’ll need to file Form 8283, “Noncash Charitable Contributions” (IRS.gov/pub/irs-pdf/f8283. pdf). You’ll also need a receipt from the organization for every batch of items you donate and will need to create an itemized list of the items donated. To calculate fair market value for your stuff, use the Salvation Army’s donation guide at SAtruck.org/home/ donationvalueguide. Toss It If you have a lot of junk you want to get rid of, contact your municipal trash service to see if they provide bulk curbside pickup services. Or, depending on where you live, you could hire a company like 1-800-Got-Junk (1800gotjunk.com, 800-468-5865) or Junk-King (Junk-King.com, 888-888-5865) to come in and haul it off for a moderate fee. Another disposal option is Bagster (TheBagster.com, 877-7892247) by Waste Management. This is a dumpster bag that you purchase for around $30, fill it to a limit of 3,300 pounds and schedule a pickup, which costs anywhere between $100 and $300 depending on your area. Get Help If you want or need some help, consider hiring a senior move manager. These are professional organizers who help older adults and their families with the daunting process of downsizing and moving to a new residence. To locate one in your area, visit the National Association of Senior Move Managers at NASMM.org or call 877-606-2766. You can also search at Caring Transitions (CaringTransitions.com), which is a large senior relocation and transition services franchise company that has more than 200 franchises nationwide. 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.

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, June 4, 2021 Page 19 ~ Letter to the Editor ~ Governor owes Francisco Ureña an apology Dear Editor: Veterans Assisting Veterans is a volunteer nonprofit organization. We note that The Boston Globe Spotlight team’s recent article vindicates the former Massachusetts Secretary of Veterans’ Services Francisco Ureña, regarding his role at the Holyoke Soldiers’ Home, where 76 elderly veterans died from the COVID-19 outbreak. Ureña, a decorated American war hero, dedicated public servant and dedicated veterans advocate, was wrongfully summoned to the State House to resign last year. Ureña was used as a scapegoat for the protection of the Baker Administration. As a result, his resignation caused severe damage to his reputation and livelihood. The Board of Directors of Veterans Assisting Veterans finds no better time than now to demand that Governor Baker issue a public apology to Ureña. We call upon the people and veterans of Massachusetts to directly contact the governor and his administration and demand this public apology. The deaths of veterans at the Holyoke Soldiers’ Home are tragic and could have been avoided had the governor favored professionalism and skills in his choice to oversee the facility rather than political patronage and nepotism.

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 filed. 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 May 2428, the House met for a total of eight minutes while the Senate met for a total of 23 hours and 40 minutes. Mon.
