Maldden alld a Vol. 31, No. 23 den -FREECongratulations MHS Class of 2022! AADD By Steve Freker T he only item on the agenda more perfect than the weather on Sunday was the multitude of smiles and happiness displayed by all in attendance at the commencement exercises for the Malden High School Class of 2022. MHS sent 449 graduates into the world as newly minted alumni on Sunday afternoon with this class – like the two before it – having withstood challenges faced by no other groups of students in history. Despite the challenges, the Class of 2022 has much to be proud of, particularly with its academic achieveCTE CAT AT www.advocatenews.net Published Every Friday 617-387-2200 One of top academic classes ever will send over 85% to two- and fouryear colleges, universities; below: complete list of 2022 graduates ment, as nearly 85% of its members are headed to higher education, including four-year colleges and universities, two-year schools or trade schools. Malden High School Principal Chris Mastrangelo related that many of the graduates had achieved high honor status with their grade point averages (GPA) and once again had a high number of participants and achievers in the Advanced Placement (AP) program. Many Class of 2022 graduates were recipients of fi nancial assistance with their higher learning, as over 100 members received a total of $118,000 in scholarships at the recent Senior Awards Salutatorian's Address delivered by Olivia Chan By Olivia Chan Class of 2022 Salutatorian G ood afternoon to all the family, friends, classmates, teachers, administration, and everyone in between, welcome to the graduation ceremony of the Class of 2022 and thank you for being here.

On Sunday, the Malden High School Scholarship Corporation awarded 33 recipients $4,000 scholarships, a new high mark, as announced by Malden City Clerk Greg Lucey. Another highlight of the day’s event was when the Malden High School Choral Arts Society, under the direction of MHS educator Todd Cole, unveiled and sang a brand-new song, “Class of ’22,” which they composed in collaboration with Malden Mayor and School Committee Chairperson Gary Christenson. In a switch from previous years, Mayor Christenson deferred immediately to the presentation of the musical piece in lieu of prepared remarks, with the new song very well-received with much applause. The Malden High School Band, led by Erin Mazza, also performed well at the commencement. While the COVID-19 pandemic continues in its third year and has made its mark emphatically in the area of education, all of the speakers at the MHS commencement made it clear they were ready to celebrate the moment and embrace the future, rather than relive the past. Malden High School Principal Chris Mastrangelo relayed that message clearly when addressing the Class of 2022 and the hundreds of family and friends in attendance. “As I gathered my thoughts to put down into words, I found myself drifting in and out of ‘Pre Covid and Post Covid’ thoughts. I was caught on the same carousel that so many of us have been on for the past couple of years. ‘Pre’ and ‘Post,’” Mastrangelo said. “I took these two words that have been used so much and switched the narrative. I replaced Covid with MHS. “What is ahead of you now is another chapter in your life that is unknown.

I was notifi ed this Tuesday that I will be standing up here and delivering a speech. You might be expecting an eloquent and sophisticated speech from me, but I am not wise, at least not yet as learning doesn’t end upon obtaining a diploma. Anywho, here we go. Good afternoon, Principal Mastrangelo, Superintendent Dr. Murphy, Mayor Christenson, school faculty and staff , honored guests, friends and family, and most importantly, my beloved Class of 2022.

Shown from left to right; Secretary Card, Lt. Governor Karyn Polito and Mayor Gary Christenson on city hall roof deck. Special to Th e Advocate T he transformation of Malden Center has been driven largely by the City Hall redevelopment plan which took perseverance, outside the box thinking and multiple partners. This week the City had the opportunity to thanks its state partners in the revitalization eff ort for much-needed fi nancial assistance to make the project a success. Mayor Gary Christenson hosted an in-person state delegation tour of the building Wednesday afternoon that included Lt. Governor Karyn Polito, Executive Offi ce of Housing and Economic Development Secretary Michael Kennealy and Executive Offi ce of Energy and Environmental and Aff airs Secretary Bethany Card. Others in attendance included State Senator Jason Lewis, State Representative Steven Ultrino, City Council President Craig Spadafora, Councillor-at-Large Karen Colon Hayes and Sandi Silk, Senior Vice President of Jefferson Apartment Group which developed the mixed-use property that includes the 50,000 square foot condominium for city hall, 320 apartments and 25,000 square feet of retail space. According to the Mayor, the City took advantage of three state-sponsored economic development programs to see this project to fruition including the Housing Development Incentive Program (HDIP), the Brownfi elds Tax Credit Program, and MassWorks. The Mayor spoke about this project being the catalyst for the resurgence of Malden Center with its many dining and entertainment options. The project he said has been a “game changer” and has also garnered the attention of other developers who are in the process of making investments in the city to attract lab and life science tenants. “A strong partnership between the City of Malden and state government has been critical to transforming and revitalizing downtown Malden,” said Senator Lewis. “I look forward to continuing these eff orts in the years ahead, including hopefully the redevelopment of Malden Center Train Station.” Added Rep. Ultrino: “The assistance that the Commonwealth has provided the City and will continue to provide has always been critical towards the economic development for our community.” “HDIP,” said Sandi Silk, “supports economic stability and vibrancy in Gateway Cities. Without this innovative and fl exible program, this project simply would not have been feasible.” Council President Craig Spadafora said, “There is no better time to be a Maldonian. This development is a step forward in the right direction casting a vision for a more prosperous city and outlining action steps to restart our economy.” The tour of city hall also included a tour of the J Malden Center apartment building and its amenity space.

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, June 10, 2022 Page 7 EAST COAST, WEST COAST SHERIFFS AGREE TO FRIENDLY WAGER ON 2022 NBA FINALS SF Sheriff and Middlesex Sheriff Bet to Benefit Charity B ILLERICA, Mass. – The momentum leading up to the long-awaited matchup between the Golden State Warriors and Boston Celtics has garnered much attention, including from the sheriffs of both San Francisco and Middlesex County, Massachusetts. San Francisco Sheriff Paul Miyamoto and Middlesex Sheriff Peter Koutoujian - colleagues and friends through Major County Sheriffs of America (MCSA) - spoke by phone this weekend, agreeing to a wager for charity. “It’s been 58 years since we’ve faced off in the Finals and I am confident that our Warriors are going to take the trophy,” said Sheriff Miyamoto. “But everyone will be a winner because the runner up has to make a donation to benefit the Boys and Girls Club of their respective county.” Besides the donation, the losing sheriff will pose for a photo, wearing the apparel of the 2022 NBA Championship team, which will be posted to social media. “Golden State and the Bay State are leaders on and off the court. Sheriff Miyamoto and I, as well as our staffs, have partnered through MCSA to improve our agencies and the crucial work of sheriffs.However, this week we are rivals,” said Sheriff Koutoujian. “I have no doubt that Sheriff Miyamoto will be donning Celtics green come next week as we hang banner 18 in the Garden.” “Our only Green is Draymond Green,” said Sheriff Miyamoto. "I’ve already bought a blue and gold DubNation sweatshirt for Sheriff Koutoujian. I respect him and admire the work he's done for his community but at the end of this series, we are hopeful that the trophy will stay in the Bay... the San Francisco Bay." Joking aside, the real beneficiaries will be the children of Boys and Girls Clubs in San Francisco and Middlesex counties. Portal To Hope Seeks Public’s Help: Support VOCA Bridge Act P ortal To Hope (PTH), the award-winning nonprofit organization serving domestic violence crime victims in Everett, Lynn, Medford, Malden, Winthrop and neighboring Massachusetts communities, is facing a 27% budget cut effective July 1st.Already operating as a small-funded nonprofit, PTH relies on $179,900 in federal funding from the Victims of Crime Act (VOCA) to serve an average of 900 people each year. Drastic cuts to VOCA will leave PTH to operate on $131,490 in fiscal year 2023 – a severe reduction.Considering that PTH spends less than 5% on administrative costs where its management team already volunteers time to carry-out administrative functions in order to dedicate funds for direct care service programs, the 27% budget cut will strap the organization and eliminate its Emergency Shelter program.“In talking with the public, they are as perplexed as we are as to why government keeps cutting funding to agencies serving some of our most vulnerable community members – especially when they realize all the helpful services that we provide,” said Linda Morris, a survivor who has been sharing her time as a Victim Advocate at PTH for seventeen years.“As a survivor whose own life was impacted by a family member killed by her abuser, I struggle to understand why PTH and similar agencies are forced to beg for funding every year,” said Morris. VOCA funding is administered by the Massachusetts Office for Victim Assistance (MOVA); and MOVA announced that 124 programs and 220 victim services jobs across the Commonwealth are impacted by the drastic cuts to VOCA funds.“A state investment is critically needed to sustain and stabilize victim services across the Commonwealth to continue supporting victims and survivors,” announced MOVA. PTH’s Founder, Deborah Fallon, a survivor of violent crime, is appreciative of the work that MOVA and the Victim and Witness Assistance Board (VWAB), which is chaired by Attorney General Maura Healey, are doing in partnership with the Massachusetts Legislature to bridge the funding gap via the “VOCA Bridge Act”. “MOVA and VWAB have been outstanding partners in our work serving people impacted by violent crime,” said Fallon.“Every person has the right to live free from abuse, and while PTH and like programs are already inundated and focused-in on providing direct care services to people, we look to MOVA, VWAB and our legislators as our advocates in helping us to remain fully funded.” MOVA announced that the Massachusetts Legislature named a Conference Committee to “reconcile differences between the House and Senate final budgets”. Conference Committee members are: Representatives Michlewitz, Ferrante, and Smola and Senators Rodrigues, Friedman, and O’Connor.MOVA continues to advocate for a fully-funded VOCA Bridge to sustain services for victims and survivors and is “requesting that the Conference Committee maintain the $20M investment included in the House budget to bridge one-year of impending cuts” to VOCA funded programs for fiscal year 2023. To help support these efforts, please call PTH (781) 338-7678 or email portaltohope@aol. com.“Over the course of our own lives, many of us, unfortunately, will know of someone whose life has been impacted by domestic violence crime. We are reaching-out to people to call their legislators to ask that they support the fully-funded intentions of the VOCA Bridge Act passed by the Massachusetts House,” said Fallon.“We appreciate the public’s support.” For more information about MOVA, please visit www.mass.gov/mova.For more information about PTH, please visit www.portaltohope.org.

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, June 10, 2022 Page 9 Malden Woman Sentenced for Embezzling Nearly $800,000 from Employer B OSTON – A Malden woman was sentenced on Friday in federal court in Boston on fraud and identity theft charges in connection with her embezzlement of more than $795,000 from her employer. Kayla Figelski, 34, was sentenced by U.S. District Court Chief Judge F. Dennis Saylor IV to three years in prison and two years of supervised release. Figelski was also ordered to pay restitution in the amount of $796,747. In May 2021, Figelski pleaded guilty to seven counts of bank fraud and one count of aggravated identity theft. From in or about April 2017 through June 2019, Figelski stole at least $796,747 from her employer, an elder law attorney, in Malden. Figelski perpetrated the scheme by forging checks to herself from her employer’s checking accounts, including conservatorship, trust and estate administration accounts her employer maintained for the firm’s elderly clients and their estates. Figelski deposited the checks into her own bank account, from which she withdrew the funds, or directly cashed the checks. Figelski concealed the scheme by altering bank statements to make it appear that the checks were written to legitimate vendors. As a result of Figelski’s theft, her employer was forced to sell the building where her law practice was located, which had been in the victim’s family since 1976. United States Attorney Rachael S. Rollins and Joseph R. Bonavolonta, Special Agent in Charge of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Boston Division made the announcement. Valuable assistance was provided by the Malden Police Department. Assistant U.S. Attorney Kristen A. Kearney of Rollins’ Securities, Financial & Cyber Fraud Unit prosecuted the case.

Y’all confuse us together so much I’m starting to get confused. Anyways, I want to say thank you on behalf of the graduating class of 2022 to all the admin, faculty, honored guests, family, and friends. None of us would be here without you. Shout out to Mr. Valente in particular for coming to my meets and letting me use his room as my second living room these past four years. Shout out Linda and to all of my friends! Y’all know who you are. To the class of 2022, I know everyone’s said it about a million times already, but we really made it. We are really here at OUR graduation, about to close this chapter of our lives. We’ve survived a global pandemic, quarantine, and online school. Some of us may have gotten lost on the way and stumbled into New York Pizza or Dunks, but regardless, we’re finally all here. We are all standing at the conclusion of a 4 year long chapter of our lives. Throughout these past 4 years, we’ve gone through a lot. From having to cram for midterms and finals till 4 AM to dealing with isolation during quarantine, to having cake thrown at us after JV’s ahem Dan. However, we’ve also had some of the best moments of our lives, whether it be getting into our dream school, making it to the state championship, or just seeing mayor Gary Christenson’s snow day announcements on Instagram. But with those accomplishments must come sacrifices. I’m sure everyone here has had to sacrifice something in pursuit of their goals. Some of those sacrifices supported us every step of the way. After all, without these reTony Geich Class Orator have come at the detriment of grades, some at the detriment of sports, some at the detriment of sleep and personal health, and some have come at the detriment of your personal relationships. It is this last sacrifice that one should pay attention to however. We have so many words for personal relationships that if you google the phrase “friend synonyms” right now you will see more than 50 different words and phrases come up. This is because personal relationships are what brings meaning to our lives and makes them special. Not only that, but if you think about it, a lot of the events we cherish are special because of the relationships we have. Take birthdays for example, our birthdays are special because we are able to celebrate our lives with people we care about and who care about us. Prom is special because we get to let loose and have fun with some of our closest friends. Even this graduation is special because we are celebrating all our hard work with people who’ve helped us and lationships, we just wouldn’t be who we are today. I mean, I know for a fact I never would’ve become the “fishboi” y’all know me as without the help of my parents, teammates, and coaches nor would I be standing here, speaking to all of you without the help of my friends and teachers. I’m sure many of you have similar stories as well of people who’ve helped you on your journey to this moment. As much as others have influenced us, our connections also give us the power to influence others too. Raise your hands how many of you have had a bad day turn into a good day simply because someone complimented you? Or got you your favorite snack? Or just did something nice for you? I know I have. That power to shape someone is a gift and it is one of the most beautiful things life has to offer. I can see some of you starting to zone out so I’ll try and wrap this up. Yeah, y’all thought you were slick didn’t you. Anyways, after this day, all of us will be heading in different directions. Some of us may cross paths in the future but this is when our journeys diverge. I know that every one of you has big plans, goals, and dreams for the future and I wholeheartedly support all of you in your every endeavor. But if there is one thing you remember from your time here, it is to never forget to take care of the relationships you have with your friends, teachers, mentors, and whoever else you value in your life. They are the people who’ve helped you get here, and they will continue to help you get to your next destination. Fishboi out!

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, June 10, 2022 Page 13 PRESIDENT | FROM PAGE 1 gled a lot with processing the fact that our childhood is now over. But I always knew this day would come. The first time we were all together like this was the first day of freshman year. Do you remember how hot it was that day in the auditorium? The air was buzzing with excitement, anticipation, and nervousness. Even so, I think we knew that that was the start of something special. We wanted to believe that what they say about high school going by fast was true, but it was also hard to believe that when you’re sitting in Ms. Chan’s math class watching the minutes go by. No one could have predicted just how much would change in the next few years, not only in ourselves, but in the entire world. Now, four years later, this is the last time we will all be together in the same place. So remember this moment: when the crowd cheers after your name is called, when your biggest worry is not tripping on stage. Because, unfortunately, we live in a country where not everyone makes it as far as we did. It is hard for me to comprehend that just a few weeks ago, 21 lives were lost to gun violence, and now those children SALUTATORIAN | FROM PAGE 1 of 2022 would have liked to see someone they actually know on the stage, but sorry, you’re stuck with me. Going into writing this speech, I was tempted to steal the jokes in the speeches I saw online, but then I realized that I wouldn’t be able to pull them off anyway. I’ll save everyone the trouble of hearing the whole COVID spiel because I think everyone is tired of hearing about it. If it must be mentioned, I’ll let someone else do it, so I’ll skip that. Well, what I really want to focus on today is the journey that we’ve all been taken on through our high school career. I’m sure we all started high school as clueless freshmen without a clear path in life and with a scrambled web of social relationships. So I’d like to take a moment to acknowledge the people who were central to this journey. To my teachers: You have inspired me to do so much. There are those who fostered my love for history, those who made every biology class fun, those whose passion for math almost infected me, and those who helped me work through my fear of public speaking. Though, I think that last one still needs will never make it to their own graduation. Our class may be the only one to have completed a full year of high school at MHS, but we are also one of the only ones that are living through this unprecedented time in history full of loss, violence, and instability, all while trying to continue on with our lives as if everything is normal. We watched as the number of people who died from COVID rose; we watched arguably one of the most important presidential elections of our lifetime; we saw firsthand how isolation can affect a teenager; we saw countless protests for injustice; and we continue to see all that is wrong with the world at just the tip of our fingers. And in the midst of all that fear and loss, we could have easily forgotten how messed up the world was. But we didn’t. I am proud to be a part of a generation that continues to advocate for what they believe is right – one that is not afraid to speak truth to power. I can only hope that as we move forward with our lives we can keep on carrying this sense of empathy we have as youths. I said remember this moment, but let us all remember the moments that we shared together over the past four years as well: the petition on Change.org to get the doors back on our bathsome work because my knees are knocking into each other right now. Once upon a time, I talked to one of my middle school teachers, and she complained about how when everyone gets up on the stage they start talking about all their high school teachers, but what about the middle school teachers? You know who you are. Don’t worry, I haven’t forgotten. I’d like to extend my sincere thanks to all of my teachers – elementary, middle, and high school – for shaping me into the person I am today. You guys did a great job, but unfortunately even you can’t fix my scoliosis, my myopia, my terrible athletic ability, and how I forget how to do basic math. I don’t think anyone can. Now, we as teenagers like to talk about independence and how we’ll be able to tackle the world without the nagging of others, but I want to highlight the importance of the people we’ve met around us. Without the friends that I met in high school, I would still be the teenager who wouldn’t dare talk to a teacher even if I split my head open. I would still be the teenager who thought that talking about my feelings and anxieties was a form of weakness. rooms, losing every spirit week except our last one, going out for lunch during midterms, watching Rebecca Black’s Friday every Friday in Londino’s class. Because after today we’re all going our separate ways, whether that be college, trade school, the workforce or taking a gap year, and whether you’re staying in state or moving across the country… Up until this point in our lives, we have been held together by invisible strings. Many of us attended the same preschool, elementary school, middle school, and then all of us came together in high school. For some of us, our lives have been intertwined since preschool. After all this time, it’s hard to untangle all that history and leave it behind. So, move on, but never forget your roots. Time has given us no compasses, no signs, no clues as to where we will end up. However, I do know that no matter where you will be going after high school, we’ll always have Friday nights out at Assembly, ordering Shirley Temples at restaurants, pretending to listen to a lecture on Zoom, coming home sore after a long sports game, whether you were on the field or cheering on from the sidelines just to lose by 50 points, stealing moments with your hallway crush, and late nights They are the people who have been by my side when I had no one else to turn to. They are the people who were willing to listen to me vent when I had sunk to my lowest point. For that, I am eternally grateful for their patience and their influence on me to turn into a more social person – a person who is willing to dance like a chicken with their head cut off at prom. I’m still not perfect at communication, as you can probably tell, and I’m still in the process of trying to break completely out of my shell, but that’s all part of the process, a process I couldn’t have done without the people around me. I’m sure that many of you can say the same about a precious friend or group of friends. I’ve talked about how both teachers and friends have helped us get through these past years and how they’ve helped mold us into the people we are now, but there is one other person who often goes unrecognized: yourself. I’ve met so many kind people during the past few years, but I’ve noticed one problem and I’m guilty of this as well: the problem of self-worth. Despite how amazing these people are in my eyes, they don’t see themselves the same way. at Revere Beach, not because it’s the nicest but the closest one. All we’ve talked about since freshman year has been leaving – leaving behind the flickering streetlights, cracked sidewalks, and small town secrets. But when we do come back, maybe the colors will have faded and the potholes fixed. People will have changed their hair and grown taller. And we will be different, too. All I know is no matter how far away we go, this will always be the place we were made. And this place consists of some really great people, because none of us could be here today without the guidance of our mentors and peers. I want to thank Daniel Howard Jurkowski, our class advisor, who has loyally stuck by us for the past four years when he could have quit at any time. He has taught me a lot about leadership, and his resilience continues to inspire me every day. I would not be standing here today presenting a speech if it weren’t for him encouraging me to run for VP sophomore year. Thank you for believing in me, and for playing Folklore during gym. To my student council members, I hate you all for stacking 16 cards against me in Crazy 8. That being said, I could not have chosen a better group of people to have spent the past three We as a class have overcome so much, whether it was the pandemic, family issues, financial struggles, or internal strife. We have shown determination and unity in the face of adversity. I’ve talked about myself in this speech, but this day is about each and every one of you – about all of your current achievements and the achievements you will reach in the future. Many of the people I know give themselves a hard time because they think that they could have done better. Our worst critics are often ourselves, and we can’t see all the good qualities that other people notice in us. Being sappy isn’t my style at all, but I think I can let it go just this once because it’s graduation. Reconcile with your past self, forgive your past mistakes and look fondly on how cringey you think you used to be. Appreciate your current self, always strive to be better in the future, but do not discount who you are now and what you have achieved. You are not a singular embarrassing or disappointing action, you are the result of all of your actions, forged from trials of fires and determination of steel. Whether we’re the best of years with. Each and every one of you are so hardworking and skilled in your own right; your next destination is going to be so lucky to have you. I love you guys. To our Principal, Mr. Mastrangelo, sorry we all called you Thanos freshman year. We hadn’t yet been able to see your perseverance and commitment to your job. You’re seriously one of the best principals anyone could ask for. Thank you for always listening to us and constantly trying to do better. You’re someone that everyone should be looking up to. And finally, mom and dad, thank you for your bravery in leaving behind everything you’ve known for children that weren’t even born yet. How determined you were to give my brother and I a life that was worth sacrificing yours for. To my brother, who would be mad if I didn’t include him in this speech, you’re pretty cool, I guess. I don’t appreciate how much taller than me you are, but I do appreciate the bond that we share. Now, for my final message to the Class of ’22 as your president… long live all the walls we crashed through, all the magic we made, and all the mountains we moved. I had the time of my life with you all. One day, we will be remembered. friends, classroom acquaintances, or perfect strangers, the fact that you are right here, right now, is proof to me that you are enough. Even though we might not know each other, your hard work is evident to me because you are here, you are graduating. Even though these words are cliche and I feel awkward saying them to all of you, I think that everyone doesn’t hear these words enough. Sometimes they’re the words that you need to hear. A lot of the time they’ve been words that I needed to hear but didn’t. You are worth it. You are worth all the love you receive. You deserve all the fortune that comes your way. Remember all of the people who helped you get to where you are now: your family that has acted as your backbone (shoutout to my mom, dad, and brother, cough), your teachers that have supported you, and the friends that you have made countless memories with. But also remember to acknowledge your own role in your success. Today as you step up to receive your diploma, bask in that moment because it is fully yours. Whatever you do after today, I know you’ll walk on a path of success. Thank you.

Page 16 THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, June 10, 2022 BBB Scam Alert: How to spot a phony discount when buying CBD online C annabidiol (CBD), an active ingredient of cannabis, is now legal in many US states and Canadian provinces. If you want to try it, watch out for scams. BBB Scam Tracker received dozens of reports from frustrated consumers who thought they bought discounted CBD online but ended up with hundreds of dollars in credit card charges. How the scam works: You see an ad for CBD on social media or in an online search. A company is offering new customers a significant discount on CBD gummies. For example, one common scam offers a buy-one-getone free deal. In some cases, the product seems to be endorsed by a celebrity. For example, recent Scam Tracker reports mention TV show Shark Tank, actor Kevin Costner, actress Mayim Bialik, and journalist Katie Couric. Sounds great, right? Unfortunately, if you order the discounted gummies, the scammers now have your credit card number. Victims report being charged for extra bottles or on-going monthly subscriptions that they never agreed to. Other victims report being charged random amounts for products they never received. Once scammers have your credit card information, cancelling is not easy! Consumers report that scammers used numerous excuses to avoid issuing refunds. They claimed everything from trouble with the computer system to it being outside the cancellation window. Many victims also told Scam Tracker that the charges continued even after they cancelled their subscription. One victim reported getting threatening calls posing as the CBD company’s collections department nearly a year after cancelling their order. “Today, I received a 2nd phone call saying I was in collections with them, that I should have read the small print and that I had to cancel within 2 weeks of initial response or I was on the hook. They told me it was the ‘escalation department,’ and that I owed them money. The woman was extremely rude and aggressive, continued to speak over me, and threatening. I have never heard from this company by email or mail since I initially responded more than a year ago - no additional product has been received either.” Tips for avoiding this scam: • Research the company online. See what other people are saying about the company’s free trials. Complaints from other customers can tip you off to “catches” that might come with the trial. Check the business's BBB Rating and see if there are any alerts. • Understand what happens after the free trial ends. Always read the terms of the offer before signing up. Numerous victims of the CBD free trial con reported not ever seeing the terms and conditions. This is a huge red flag. If you can’t find them or can’t understand what you’re agreeing to, don’t sign up. • Be skeptical of celebrity endorsements. Resist being swayed by the use of a wellknown name. Scammers often fake celebrity endorsements. • Report losses to credit card companies. If you pay with a credit card, you can dispute fraudulent charges. Keep an eye on your monthly statements and notify your credit card company of any suspicious charges. For more information: Read BBB’s special report on free trial offer scams. Learn more about scams on social media advertising. Stay one step ahead of scammers by subscribing to BBB's weekly Scam Alert emails. If you’ve been a victim of free trial offer scam, please report your experience at BBB.org/ScamTracker. By doing so you can help others to avoid falling prey to scammers. Mystic Valley girls’ lacrosse team beats Abington in Round 1 of State Tourney Special to The Advocate O n Tuesday evening at the Mystic Valley Regional Charter School’s Eastern Avenue field, after finishing out the regular season at 117, the Mystic Valley Eagles girl’s lacrosse team gained a home game in the MIAA State Tournament and made the most of it, defeating a very good Abington Team, 9-8, in a hard-fought battle. The young Mystic Valley team came out strong with a goal from Lucia Antonucci in the first 10 secSTUDENT | FROM PAGE 1 we showed up late, through the morning announcements we fazed out, and through the countless lectures we almost dozed off in, we can say that we will not be doing this again. We are off into a new world, whether we are going to college, trade school, the workforce, military, or sleep, I just know that this class will be doing great things in the future. After today we will be entering the real world equipped with all the knowledge gained in high school. Tasks such as calculating the hypotenuse distance between your house and your bestie’s house, balancing the chemical equation when mixing salt and water, and identifying rhetorical strategies in text messages, you know, things adults do all the time on a daily basis, will become a piece of cake for us. Not to mention more upsides after graduation. No more walking around the entire school just to pee. No more trash cans being lit on fire. No more waiting for the underclassmen to stop blocking the middle of the hallway. And, hopefully, no more 5-minute lunches because the lines for sandwiches are always packed. As I stand here today, I want to give some words of advice, words that we can all carry with us in our future endeavors. Being named the onds of the game. The backand-forth game remained close throughout the day. Mystic Valley’s defense shined, especially play from Goalie Danni Hughes, who rallied her defense coming out of the net to meet a fierce Abington attack several times during the day. The offense was strong and balanced, not allowing Abington the ability to key on any one player as midfielders Antonucci, Mya Brutus and Ilona Beacom-Domotor each put the ball in the net three times. valedictorian means more than just having the highest GPA or earning the title. As a first-generation, low-income student from an immigrant family, being named the valedictorian means that I can rise above any situation through hard work and determination. Most of us are not born with a silver spoon in our mouths. Whether we are from a minority background or low-income household, we, in our caps and gowns, have proven to the world that we can also be so accomplished. Our identity is not a barrier to success but a launching pad that will only make us continuously push ourselves to improve, give back to our community, and make our parents proud. While I cannot stand up here and tell you how to succeed, I can stand up here and tell you that you should not let obstacles stop you from doing the very things you want to do. Me standing up here is evidence that anybody can do anything. Every single one of us had unique trials and tribulations that we had to overcome in order to be here today. We had the resilience, determination, and courage to advance in the face of adversity. With this in mind, I challenge all of you to continuously embrace those tremendous qualities as you start a new chapter in your life. As we soon depart from this stadium, I ask you all to look “I’m really proud of how the girls worked through the highs and lows of the game. We spent the last few weeks of the season talking about effort and resiliency and we saw that today,” said Head Coach Ali Jordan. “Our midfielders have really shined this year and have been essential to our success … We are looking forward to our next game, but also the future with such a young team.” Up next for Mystic Valley in the tourney is a strong second-seeded Sandwich team. around and acknowledge the special people that have inspired you to do so much and helped you become who you are today.

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, June 10, 2022 Page 17 Semiprofessional Malden Merchants and Augustine A’s share fond memories and play ball for one last time before mound morphs By Tara Vocino A pproximately 28 teammates of the Malden Merchants and the Augustine A’s, both semiprofessional inter-city baseball leagues, shared sentimental memories of over the last 53 years and played ball at Devir Park on Sunday. Sunday was the last time the teammates will play on the mound, because a block grant will result in a Devir Park transformation to a softball, lacrosse and soccer national turf field in the coming years. Many of the players had helped the Malden teams to win the championships in the 1970s, and they played for minor and major leagues, including as a Boston Red Sox farmhand, Suffolk University catcher and St. Louis Cardinal’s farmhand. The Malden Merchants were the original team that won the championship in 1972 then became the Augustine A’s that won seven other championships. Pisa Pizza and Pearl Street Station Restaurant donated approximately 25 pizzas. Players released balloons in memory of players who had died over the years. Teammates at bat, just like old times – pictured from left to right are Boston Bruins announcer Andy Brickley and Kevin Larson. Former City Councillor Robert McCarthy, who is also a local attorney, shared memories of watching the team play. Event organizer Kevin Larson thanked the City of Malden for dedicating a portion of the park (the Edward Larson Memorial Field) in memory of his brother, Edward, who was the general manager of the A’s. Malden High School Hall of Fame 1983 inductee David Caiazzo, who holds the record for the most championships with the Merchants and Augustine A’s – with eight championships as pitcher – was thrilled to be back on-the-mound.

Page 18 THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, June 10, 2022 Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts Rolls Out 100 Proud Bluebikes to Celebrate Pride Month For every ride on a Pride-themed bike in June, Bluebikes title sponsor Blue Cross will donate $1 to Fenway Health, in support of LGBTQ+ health care B OSTON (June 1, 2022) – In celebration of Pride Month, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts (“Blue Cross”) is rolling out 100 Bluebikes wrapped in a rainbow pride-themed design through the month of June. Blue Cross Proud bikes will be integrated across the Bluebikes system’s 11 municipalities (Arlington, Boston, Brookline, Cambridge, Chelsea, Everett, Newton, Revere, Salem, Somerville and Watertown). Blue Cross is the title sponsor of Bluebikes, which is owned by the municipalities and operated by Lyft. To reflect its continued support of the LGBTQ+ community, Blue Cross will donate $1 for every ride taken on Blue Cross Proud bikes through the month of June to Fenway Health in Boston. Lyft will assume the $1 donation after the 10,000th Proud bike ride of the month. Fenway Health, a longtime partner of BCBSMA, works to enhance the well-being of the LGBTQ+ community and beyond through access to the highest quality of health care, education, research, and advocacy. “We’re thrilled to once again celebrate Pride month by continuing our support of Fenway Health’s mission,” said Jeff Bellows, Blue Cross’ vice president of corporate citizenship and public affairs. “Blue Cross is committed to creating more equitable communities and to making health care more accessible and affordable. We look forward to seeing the Proud bikes in the Bluebikes fleet and raising awareness of LGBTQ+ equality along the way.” The Blue Cross Proud bikes will be available within the more than 400 Bluebikes stations across the system’s eleven municipalities through the end of June. Blue Cross is also a founding sponsor of the Massachusetts LGBT Chamber of Commerce and, for the fourth year in a row, received a perfect score on the 2022 Corporate Equality Index (CEI), a national benchmarking survey and report on corporate policies and practices related to LGBTQ workplace equality, as administered by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation. “We appreciate the commitment Blue Cross continues House Override Vote Shows Priority of Far-Left Wing Legislature Ignores Concern of Voter Fraud & Ignores Calls for Gas Tax Relief B OSTON – Despite the clear and public warnings outlined by Governor Baker in his veto message regarding the legislature’s bill giving driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants, House Speaker Ron Mariano and a majority of Democratic lawmakers voted to override the Governor’s veto anyway, pushing the bill over the finish line into becoming law. In the Governor’s veto letter, Baker warned that the Registry of Motor Vehicles (RMV) does not have the expertise or ability to verify identification documents from other countries. He also notes that the bill undermines reforms previously enacted, that were designed to make Massachusetts driver's licenses more secure, and points out that the bill specifically prevents the RMV from sharing citizenship and immigration status with the state entities tasked with ensuring only citizens register to vote. The Governor’s letter went so far as to state, “this bill significantly increases the risk that noncitizens will be registered to vote.” Late last week, the Massachusetts Fiscal Alliance launched a digital campaign on social media, directing constituents to contact their lawmakers with their concerns on the bill and asked them to uphold the veto. Since Friday, thousands of emails have poured into the State House from every legislative district in the state clearly showing a groundswell of grassroots support for the Governor’s veto. The override veto vote was 119 to 36 basically on party lines except a handful of opposing democrats. “With gasoline hitting $5 a gallon this week, Speaker Ron Mariano continued to ignore the growing number of voices calling on him to provide relief to the working- and middle-class residents of the state by suspending the state gas tax. Instead, the Speaker and his Democratic House colleagues spent their political capital pandering to the special interest groups that currently control the state Democratic party. Despite the record high overcollection of Massachusetts tax dollars being available to provide some kind of relief to families struggling with inflation and high prices, the Speaker is prioritizing giving illegal immigrants driver’s licenses over Governor Baker’s warnings that it will most likely lead to voter fraud. For the thousands of constituents who contacted their House members the last few days, they will have the next few months to hold their lawmakers accountable before the November election,” stated Paul Diego Craney, spokesperson for Massachusetts Fiscal Alliance. “Just because the Speaker was able to twist arms and override the Governor’s veto doesn’t mean these House members will be off the hook. With the vote taken, they will now have to face their constituents and explain why they follow their Speaker’s orders instead of their constituents' opinions,” concluded Craney. to demonstrate to the health and wellness of the LGBTQ+ community,” said Fenway Health Chief Executive Officer Ellen LaPointe. “This initiative will once again support our critical care, education and advocacy efforts. We’re thankful for our ongoing partnership with Blue Cross and hope that everyone takes a ride on a Pride-themed Bluebike during Pride month.” This is the third time Blue Cross has supported Fenway Health via Blue Cross Proud bikes. In 2019 and 2021, the company donated $1 for every ride on a pride-themed Bluebike, in collaboration with Lyft, to the health center. “We’re proud to collaborate with Blue Cross on a Bluebikes Pride initiative that helps shine a spotlight on the need to improve access to health care for the LGBTQ+ community, especially queer and trans youth who are at a heightened risk for critical health issues,” said Dom Tribone, Lyft General Manager for Bluebikes. “Through this effort, we celebrate the diversity and resilience of the LGBTQ+ community and support the compassionate care provided by Fenway Health.” Blue Cross has been the title sponsor of Bluebikes since its launch in May 2018. Through its partnership with the municipal owners of Bluebikes, Blue Cross continues to support system growth and accessibility, including station expansions, upgrades and additional bikes. Raytheon’s Move Out of Mass. Could Be the Start of a Trend if Grad Tax is Passed B OSTON – News of Raytheon Technologies relocating their corporate headquarters from Massachusetts to Virginia, prompted the Massachusetts Fiscal Alliance to issue a warning to lawmakers who are seeking to pass their graduated income surtax amendment ballot question this November. The legislature’s ballot question would raise the state income tax level from 5% to 9% for high income earners and many businesses. This represents an 80% increase for revenue over $1M. This would push the tax climate in Massachusetts further into unfriendly territory for businesses and their employees. “Raytheon may have considered this move for many reasons, but it’s not lost on us that when the legislature’s income tax ballot question is months away from appearing on the ballot, a large Massachusetts based company like Raytheon decides to move its corporate headquarters out of Massachusetts. This could be the first significant canary in the coal mine for Massachusetts and a warning to what will become more common if the legislature’s 80% grad tax hike amendment passes this November,” stated Paul Diego Craney, spokesperson for Massachusetts Fiscal Alliance. Massachusetts Fiscal Alliance advocates for fiscal responsibility, transparency, and accountability in state government and increased economic opportunity for the people of our Commonwealth.

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, June 10, 2022 Page 19 Will Hurricane Season Be Starting Earlier? While NWS considers moving the Atlantic storm season up 2 weeks, BoatUS has the goods on how to prepare your boat now S PRINGFIELD, Va., May 16, 2022 – No, you’re not going crazy. The current six-month Atlantic Hurricane Season, set in 1965, begins June 1 and runs through November 30. But if you have a recreational boat on the Eastern Seaboard or Gulf, you’ve likely noticed that the last seven annual hurricane seasons have experienced some type of tropical storm system in May – or earlier. Those early forming storms are now leading the National Weather Service to consider officially moving the hurricane season up two weeks to May 15. What’s a boater to do? “You can’t change hurricane season, but you can set up a customized hurricane plan for your boat now,” says Scott Croft, Boat Owners Association of The United States (BoatUS) vice president, Public Affairs. Researchers from Colorado State University are predicting another active Atlantic hurricane season for 2022 with 19 named storms and nine expected to reach hurricane strength (winds of 74 mph or greater). BoatUS notes it is the wind-driven storm surge of water that causes the most damage to recreational vessels as docks and infrastructure are torn apart and lowland boat storage areas flood. BoatUS, the national advocacy, services and safety group for boat owners with more than 800,000 members, has free recreational boat-, yacht club-, and marina-preparation information at BoatUS.com/Hurricanes. Also offered is an extensive library of hurricane-preparation videos and BoatUS Magazine articles containing proven tips and techniques amassed from the nearly four decades of poststorm recreational vessel recovery, salvage, and wreck removal experience. “How to Find and Fix Potential Breaking Points on Your Boat” and “How Not to Read a Hurricane Map” are just a couple of the helpful short reads available. More extensive downloadable guides include “BoatUS Magazine Hurricane Preparations” and “Preparing Boats and Marinas for Hurricanes” and an easy-to-download “BoatUS Hurricane Preparation WorkAG’s Office issues warning about scams targeting friends and family of incarcerated people A ttorney General Maura Healey is partnering with the Massachusetts Department of Correction (DOC), Prisoners’ Legal Services (PLS) and the Massachusetts Sheriffs’ Association (MSA) to advise residents with incarcerated loved ones to be wary of scams that offer to make or improve connections between those in correctional facilities and their friends and families for a fee. These scams target the families and friends of people who are currently incarcerated, offering deceptive or fake services that are often advertised online, over social media and in print media. In some cases, scammers purportedly offer supplemental calling plans, including false promises of “unlimited minutes,” to connect with incarcerated people. However, Massachusetts does not currently offer unlimited calling plans in any jail, House of Correction or prison. Ultimately, these scams fail to provide promised services, even after taking hundreds of dollars from consumers. “Scammers will use any opportunity to seek financial gain, including taking advantage of family and friends looking to connect with their incarcerated loved ones,” said Healey. “We are working with community advocates and our partners in law enforcement to ensure our residents know how to protect themselves from fraud and deceptive services and that they can report any instances of these scams to my office. It is important that incarcerated individuals are able to connect with the people closest to them without their loved ones becoming victims of fraud.” “The Sheriffs stand united that one of our highest priorities is keeping incarcerated individuals connected to family members, friends and outside support systems,” said Suffolk County Sheriff/MSA President Steven Tompkins. “We want to warn citizens that these are most definitely scams and urge them to take the proper precautions. Taking advantage of people who are already dealing with the stress and emotional toll of having a loved one who is incarcerated is especially repugnant. Protecting our incarcerated individuals and their families from those who would prey on them must remain a top priority.” “The Department of Correction recognizes the importance of connected relationships of family and friends with their loved ones in our custody,” said the Department of Corrections’ Commissioner Carol Mici. “This collaboration with the Attorney General’s office will help to ensure this connection continues while thwarting opportunities for fraud.” “It is too often the case that families who are already financially burdened and disproportionately people of color are also preyed upon by people seeking to take advantage of the painful experience of being separated from a loved one who is incarcerated,” said Prisoners’ Legal Services Executive Director Elizabeth Matos. “We appreciate the Attorney General’s efforts to ensure that families and communities are not being scammed in this way.” The Massachusetts Attorney General’s Office, DOC, PLS and MSA are encouraging residents to take the following steps to protect themselves from fraud and targeted scams: • Be cautious before posting about incarcerated loved ones on social media, as scammers looking for targets might try scanning social media activity. • Before signing up for a service, check the business’s website to make sure they offer reputable and legitimate services and to see if they have negative reviews. • Confirm that you can contact the business/organization via phone, email, live chat or through their website. • Look out for all fees that will apply and check the business’s refund policy. • Avoid offers that come from social media and, in particular, from questionable businesses or organizations that operate solely on Facebook or other social media websites. • Avoid unsolicited offers from sources you don’t trust or know, including texts and phone calls, unless you can confirm that the product or service is legitimate. SCAMS | SEE PAGE 22 S hortages in the supply of baby formula are leading new moms to find other ways of finding the much-needed item - and risking themselves to potential online scams. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced it is taking proactive measures to increase supply to help ease the shortage. According to the 2021 BBB Scam Tracker Risk Report, online shopping scams are the riskiest. With the current supply issues on many items, including formula, scammers are watching. How it works An ad, post, or social media group posts they have baby formula available. The buyer contacts the seller via chat or direct message, showing photos of the cans available. The buyer makes a payment through a peer-to-peer platform such as PayPal (a BBB Accredited Business) or Venmo (a BBB Accredited Business), but the formula never arrives. Signs of a potential online purchase scam include: • Positive reviews on the website that have been copied from honest sites or created by scammers. Be aware, some review websites claim to be independent but are funded by scammers. Check BBB.org. • No indication of a brick-andmortar address or the address shows on a Google map as a parking lot, residence, or unrelated business than what is listed on the website. • Misspellings, grammatical errors, or other descriptive language that is inconsistent with the product. • The seller advertises on a social media site and is communicative until the payment is made. Once the payment clears, they are unreachable. Check out the website before making a purchase: • Visit BBB.org to check a business’s rating and BBB accreditation status.

This week, Beacon Hill Roll Call reports local senators’ roll call attendance records for the 2022 session through June 3. The Senate has held 69 roll calls so far in the 2022 session. Beacon Hill Roll Call tabulates the number of roll calls on which each senator voted and then calculates that number as a percentage of the total roll call votes held. That percentage is the number referred to as the roll call attendance record. Thirty-six of the 40 senators did not miss any roll calls and have 100 percent roll call attendance records. This high level of participation can likely be attributed to the fact that under emergency rules adopted because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the vast majority of the 40 senators are not in the Senate chamber during a session. Most are watching and listening to the session from their home, business or Senate office and casting their votes remotely. Senators’ remote votes are communicated to Senate officials during the session or prior to the session if senators are informed in advance that there will be a roll call vote. If a member wants to speak on an issue under consideration, they do so on a separate “debate phone line” and their voice is then heard in the Senate chamber and by anyone watching the broadcast online. The number of senators who had 100 percent roll call attendance records in the four years prior to the pandemic was lower than 2022 as follows: 28 in 2019; 20 in 2018; 24 in 2017; and 17 in 2016. It’s a Senate tradition that the Senate president only votes occasionally. Current Senate President Karen Spilka follows that tradition and only voted on 21 (30.4 percent) of the 69 roll calls while not voting on 48 (69.6 percent) of them. Only four senators, other than Spilka, missed any roll calls. Sens. Cindy Friedman (D-Arlington) and Sen.Joan Lovely (D-Salem) each missed three roll calls for a roll call attendance record of 95.6 percent. Sens. Sonia Chang Diaz (D-Boston) and Diana DiZoglio (D-Methuen) each missed only one roll and scored a roll call attendance record of 98.5 percent. Beacon Hill Roll Call contacted the four senators asking why they missed some roll calls. Sen. Lovely responded, “I was prevented from engaging in three roll call votes while working remotely because my Internet connection was interrupted. I have participated in every other roll call vote this session and submitted a letter on how I would have voted to the Senate clerk.” “The senator had some significant food allergies and suffered an allergic reaction to lunch that day,” said DiZoglio aide Tom Arsenault. “However, she was grateful to have been able to get on the record with the clerk’s office regarding her position on that particular amendment and recover in time to vote in favor of the bill.” Friedman and Chang-Diaz did not respond to repeated requests by Beacon Hill Roll Call asking them for a statement. SENATORS’ 2022 ROLL CALL ATTENDANCE RECORDS THROUGH JUNE 3, 2022 The percentage listed next to the senator’s name is the percentage of roll call votes on which the senator voted. The number in parentheses represents the number of roll calls that he or she missed. Sen. Jason Lewis 100 percent (0) ALSO UP ON BEACON HILL SHOOTING AT A HOUSE OR APARTMENT (H 1803) – The House gave initial approval to a proposal that would impose up to a five-year prison sentence and/or $10,000 fine on anyone who discharges an assault weapon, firearm, large capacity weapon, machine gun, rifle, sawed-off shotgun or shotgun into a dwelling. Under current law this crime is a misdemeanor punishable by up to a 30day jail sentence and/or $100 fine. “I filed this legislation to create a criminal penalty for shooting into a house or building because at that time there was a string of shootings into houses in Lowell and I discovered that our police department did not have the necessary tools to enforce the law,” said co-sponsor Rep. Rady Mom (D-Lowell). "I am very pleased that we are moving forward in making what was a misdemeanor, a felony," said co-sponsor Rep. Colleen Gary (D-Lowell). Individuals firing guns at a residential home can kill the residents inside. It is not just shooting at an inanimate object. People should be able to feel safe in their own homes." Supporters also said that under current law the punishment is disproportionate to the severity of this type of incident. They noted this crime, primarily committed by gang members, is often used as an intimidation tactic without regard for the innocent people in the home. PREGNANT AND POST PARTUM MOTHERS (S 2731) – Stuck in the House Ways and Means Committee for nearly three months, since March 7, is a measure, approvedunanimously 40-0 by the Senate, designed to ensure that pregnant and postpartum mothers get necessary and potentially life-saving health care by extending MassHealth insurance coverage to 12 months after pregnancy. MassHealth is the state’s Medicaid program that provides health care for low-income and disabled persons. “The Massachusetts Senate has taken another step to combat inequities in maternal health,” said sponsor Sen. Joan Lovely (D-Salem), when the Senate approved the bill in March. “By extending postpartum healthcare coverage to a full year, birthing individuals will be able to access vital physical and behavioral health resources that will decrease mortality and severe morbidity and improve the overall health of parent and child, especially for our minority populations.” At the same time, Senate President Karen Spilka (D-Ashland) said, “The danger of dying during pregnancy or childbirth is still far too high in the United States, particularly for Black women. But the Senate is committed to continuing our efforts to ensure pregnant and postpartum mothers and people who give birth receive the critical care they need and deserve.” FUNDS FOR HOMELESSNESS – The U.S. Department of Labor announced the awarding of more than $57 million in grants nationwide to organizations that help veterans experiencing homelessness find meaningful employment and assist them in overcoming barriers to transition back successfully into the workforce. The grants include $1,506,323 for the Bay State including $501,834 For Volunteers of America of Massachusetts in Jamaica Plain; $184,489 for the Massachusetts Military Support Foundation in West Barnstable; and $820,000 for Veterans Inc. in Worcester. The funding will support 112 continuation grants totaling more than $37 million as well as 56 new three-year grants totaling some $20 million. “The pandemic further exposed the difficulties faced by our nation’s homeless veterans,” said U.S. Secretary of Labor and former Boston MayREAL ESTATE TRANSACTIONS BUYER1 WRIGHT, MATTHEW OSENI, HAMMED BUYER2 SELLER1 SHAH, ARCHAN JIANG, EMERALD SELLER2 SHAH, SWETA or Marty Walsh. “The Homeless Veterans’ Reintegration Program grants announced today will fund initiatives that help our veterans—particularly those in underserved communities—get the training and support they need return to the workforce and use their skills to make valuable contributions to our society.” Proponents also noted that the awards will enable recipients to provide a wide range of services to homeless veterans and those at risk of homelessness including learning occupational skills, attaining apprenticeships or on-the-job training opportunities and receiving job search and placement assistance. STATE BUDGET DEADLINE IS JULY 1(H 4701/S 2915) – The House and Senate each appointed three members to a conference committee to hammer out a compromise version of the different $49 billion plus versions of the fiscal 2023 budget passed by each branch. Reps. Aaron Michlewitz (D-Boston), Ann-Margaret Ferrante (D-Gloucester) and Todd Smola (R-Warren) were appointed by Speaker Ron Mariano (D-Quincy). On the Senate side Senate President Karen Spilka chose Sens. Michael Rodrigues (D-Westport ), Cindy Friedman (D-Arlington) and Patrick O'Connor (R-Weymouth). QUOTABLE QUOTES “The alarm has been sounded. There is an inability of police departments to recruit and retain police officers. It’s deeply concerning because having diverse, welltrained and effective police professionals is a necessity. We need to study the issue, understand it better and focus on making sure we have police departments that are sufficiently staffed with qualified and diverse officers.” – Sen. Bruce Tarr (R-Gloucester) on his bill to create a special commission charged with taking stock of thepolice workforce challenges experienced by cities and towns across the state. “It is unacceptable that we as a country continue to live in a seemingly endless cycle of gun violence. Traditional approaches are not working, and we must do what we can to potentially save lives. I implore the Legislature to support the divestment of our public pension funds from gun and ammunition manufacturers and distributors in support of the American people who are victims and survivors of preventable gun violence, just as we did recently by divesting from companies in Russia following their invasion of Ukraine.” – State Treasurer Deb Goldberg. “As we publish yet another audit revealing a lack of cybersecurity training, we continue to see a pattern across the commonwealth, as inadequate cybersecurity training practices put government agencies in a vulnerable position at this time of heightened cyber threats.” – State Auditor Suzanne Bump on her report on the lack of cybersecurity training in the offices of district attorneys across the state. The auditor recommended that the offices develop and implement policies and procedures which require newly hired employees to receive initial cybersecurity awareness training within 30 days of their hiring, as well as annual cybersecurity awareness training for all employees. “Without METCO, diversity would be virtually nonexistent in some districts.” – Dr. Ken Ardon, co-author of a study of the 56-year-old Metropolitan Council for Educational Opportunity (METCO) program under which some 3,200 mostly Black and Hispanic students from Boston and Springfield attend public schools in about three dozen surrounding communities. HOW LONG WAS LAST WEEK'S SESSION? 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 30-June 3 the House met for a total of one hour and 42 minutes and the Senate met for a total of one hour and two minutes. Mon. May 30 No House session No Senate session.

These Positions will remain open until filled. The Malden Housing Authority is an Equal Opportunity Employer and a Drug and Smoke-Free Agency avvyavvy iori Still Sad Dear Sad, I’m very sorry about the loss of your mother. The government program you are asking about is the COVID-19 Funeral Assistance Program administered by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (or FEMA). This program is part of the American Rescue Plan, a stimulus package passed in 2021 in an effort to help the country fi nancially manage amid the pandemic. This program, which has no end date, off ers up to $9,000 to cover the cost of a funeral for someone who died of COVID-19 as far back as January 2020. Unfortunately, less than half the people believed eligible for funeral assistance have actually applied for it. Here’s what you should know about the program’s requirements and how to apply. Where to Start? To apply for COVID-19 funeral assistance, you must do it over the phone by calling FEMA at 844-684-6333, anytime Monday through Friday, from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Eastern Time. The application process takes about 20 minutes. After you apply, FEMA will provide you an application number, which you may use to create an online account at DisasterAssistance.gov if you choose. You will then need to submit supporting documents, including a death certifi cate for your mother, but it must state that her death “may have been caused by” or “was likely the result of” COVID-19 or COVID-19-like symptoms. Her death must also have occurred in the U.S. on or after Jan. 20, 2020. If you don’t have this, you won’t be eligible. You’ll also need to submit proof of funeral expenses, such as itemized receipts, invoices or funeral home contracts. These supporting documents can be submitted either online (through your DisasterAssistance.gov account), by mail (P.O. Box 10001, Hyattsville, MD 20782) or via fax (855-261-3452). After the paperwork is received, it takes FEMA about 45 days to make an eligibility decision. Families who had multiple deaths due to the coronavirus can also apply. One family can receive up to $35,000 across multiple funerals. Reimbursements can be used to cover any portion of funeral expenses including burial plots, caskets, preparation of the body, cremation, urns, clergy, services and headstones as well as costs related to state or local ordinances and producing death certifi cates. But be aware that pre-paid funerals are not eligible for reimbursements. Any payment made specifi cally for a funeral prior to death is considered a duplication and is not eligible. If FEMA approves your application, the funds will either be deposited into your bank account or sent by mail via check, usually within a few days of approval. If, however, you receive a letter from FEMA saying you’re ineligible, or if the amount awarded is not enough, you have the right to appeal within 60 days of FEMA’s decision letter. For more information on the COVID Funeral Assistance program, visit FEMA.gov/disaster/coronavirus/economic/funeral-assistance. 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. n r by Jim Miller How to Get Underutilized COVID Funeral Assistance Funds Dear Savvy Senior, I recently saw a news segment on TV about a government funeral assistance program available to families who lost loved ones during the pandemic. What can you tell me about this? I lost my 78-year-old mother to COVID in 2021 and want to fi nd out if I’m still eligible for any funeral funds, and if so, what I need to do to get them.

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, June 10, 2022 Page 23 Baker-Polito Administration Launches Summer Learning Programs, Commits Nearly $60 Million in Funding for Schools and Community Partners Across the Commonwealth B OSTON – The Baker-Polito Administration today announced nearly $60 million in state and federal funding available to school districts and community organizations to offer summer learning and recreational programs designed to help students grow academically and socially. Students at every grade level will have opportunities to take part in a mix of academic and enrichment programs offered at schools, after-school and early education programs and recreation sites. Last summer, approximately 46,000 students across the Commonwealth participated in a summer learning program supported by the Baker-Polito Administration. The administration will once again support schools and community organizations that offer programs including Acceleration Academies, Summer Learning Partnerships, Summer Step Up and Summer Acceleration to College. “Students across the Commonwealth were significantly impacted by the disruption to their learning and their social and emotional well-being caused by COVID-19, and it is imperative that we continue to provide the resources and support they need to thrive,” said Governor Charlie Baker. “We are pleased to be able to again provide this funding, and we are grateful to the community and educational partners statewide who will take advantage of these opportunities and greatly benefit the Commonwealth’s children.” “By providing funding to support summer programs, we hope to engage more kids when school is out of session with fun, educational and enriching programs,” said Lt. Governor Karyn Polito. “These engaging programs run by caring professionals will ensure that the young people in their communities have access to the tools they need to recover both academically and emotionally.” Remote and hybrid learning during the COVID-19 crisis led to learning loss for many students, and impacted emotional and mental health. After schools reopened across the country last year, national research showed that on average, K-12 students were five months behind in mathematics and four months behind in reading by the end of the 2020-21 school year. In Massachusetts, results from the most recent statewide MCAS tests administered in the spring of 2021 show that many more students had gaps in their knowledge of math and, to a lesser extent, English language arts, compared to students in the same grades before the COVID-19 pandemic; and fewer students met or exceeded grade level expectations. A recent MassINC survey of parents in Massachusetts found about 22 percent believe their children are behind grade level, compared to 13 percent who thought the same prior to the public health crisis. More than one-third of parents with younger students who are behind grade level said they are planning to send their children to summer programs. “When we launched summer programming last year, we knew it would be a multiyear effort to help many students regain ground both academically and socially,” said Education Secretary James Peyser. “We are committed to continuing this work by partnering with communities to engage young people in innovative and productive ways.” “We are once again providing students access to academics as well as enrichment opportunities to help them grow and keep connected to school this summer,” said Elementary and Secondary Education Commissioner Jeffrey C. Riley. “I hope all districts across the Commonwealth take advantage of these programs and the funding the Administration has made available.” “Summer Step up will provide our young learners with the critical academic and social-emotional supports to prepare them for a successful transition to back to school in the fall,” said Acting Commissioner Amy Kershaw. “We are pleased to be able to support this innovative collaboration with our schools and community partners for a second year to help address the impact of COVID-19 on our young students and their families.” The following are some of the programs to be funded: Acceleration Academies The Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) will help school districts launch Acceleration Academies, which allow students to learn and build skills by working intensively on one subject in small, hands-on learning environments with excellent teachers. Students benefit from small class sizes, longer uninterrupted instructional blocks, individualized attention, project-based lessons, and teacher flexibility for learning time. The administration will commit up to $20 million in grants for districts to operate Acceleration Academies using federal Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Response (ESSER) discretionary funds. This is a multi-year program that the department anticipates will impact more than 23,000 students statewide each year. Acceleration Academies will include: • Early Literacy Academies for incoming kindergarteners, rising 1st and 2nd graders; and LEARNING | SEE PAGE 24
