THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, June 19, 2020 Page 3 Finance Committee reviews police department budget By Barbara Taormina N o Malden police offi cer has fi red a gun in the city since a 2012 carjacking that involved mother and child. Chief Kevin Molis shared that fact this week during the Finance Committee’s review of the level-funded $11,592,266 police department budget proposed for 2021. Molis fielded questions from the committee about police hiring, training and community relationships against the national backdrop of calls for police reform in the wake of the murder of George Floyd by a Minneapolis police offi cer. “With all that’s going on, I think we need to talk about the impact of police offi cers killing Black and Brown people,” said Ward 7 Councillor Neal Anderson, who added that these fatal confrontations are nothing new to people of color. “So far, we haven’t been aff ected by that. What I’ve seen in the killing by police offi cers of Black and Brown people is that these were situations not best handled by police,” said Anderson. “What are you doing that has made our department diff erent from other communities?” Molis said the police department has been fortunate to attract people who bring the right values and the right level of integrity and commitment to the job. Molis said the diversity within the department, which refl ects the diversity of the city, has been an important factor. “I don’t need blind support or blind hatred,” said Molis. “What I need is a hope for unity and a hope for learning. I need people willing to teach me what their life is about.” BUDGET | SEE PAGE 16 Ward 5 celebrates two centurions Division Street residents recently came together in a socially distant manner to wish two longtime Maldonians a very happy 100th birthday.

Although Haverhill Police were initially able to stop Cesar, he was able to evade officers and fled at a “high rate of speed” onto Interstate 495. After being contacted by Haverhill Police, state troopers intervened and located the Mercedes traveling southbound on Interstate 93 in Andover. However, Cesar allegedly refused to stop, thus causing police to give chase. Police terminated the pursuit at Commerce Way in Woburn after losing sight of the vehicle. By 9:30 a.m., the pursuit had resumed on I-93 south. Police also deployed a spike strip in an attempt to stop the Mercedes. However, they were not successful as Cesar got off the highway at exit 32 and got on Route 60 in Medford. The pursuit was then terminated for a second time, according to police. A state trooper found the vehicle four minutes later near Auburn Street in Medford. The trooper got out of his cruiser MAYOR | FROM PAGE 1 3.

However, Cesar refused to comply and managed to escape, allegedly striking the trooper, the cruiser and another vehicle in the process. According to police, the trooper was able to drive himself to a local hospital. At 1 p.m. – nearly four hours after the chase began – the State Police Air Wing located the vehicle on Pond Street in Lynn. This time, Cesar could not escape and was taken into custody along with Yosvani Hernandez, 18, of Somerville, and two juvenile passengers.

Recognition of Juneteenth as an official Holiday in Malden Juneteenth represents the oldest known celebration of the abolition of slavery in the United States. It dates back to June 19, 1865, when, after arriving in Texas with Union troops, Union Army General Gordon Granger read “General Order No. 3” announcing the emancipation of slaves. In Malden, we will be commemorating Juneteenth for the third year in a row with an annual flag raising and community celebration, albeit virtually this year, thanks to dedicated community groups like MaldenCORE. The Commonwealth of Massachusetts officially recognized Juneteenth as a state holiday in 2007, and this year, the City of Malden will not just celebrate the day, but also officially recognize it as a city holiday to honor the history, sacrifices and legacy of our African American community.

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, June 19, 2020 Page 5 Malden Neighbors hope to continue their mutual aid network By Barbara Taormina A lthough it impossible to adequately describe the hardships and loss the city has seen during the COVID-19 crisis, there have been some bright moments, and one of the brightest has been the launch of Malden Neighbors Helping Neighbors. Organizer and leading neighbor Zayda Ortiz zoomed into this week’s City Council meeting with an update on the group and what they have accomplished over the past three months. “Malden Neighbors Helping Neighbors was founded in March and is rooted in the traditions of mutual aid,” Ortiz told the council. “Our mission is about building community, not another charity.” Malden Neighbors has a website where residents can privately submit requests for assistance which are answered with the help of the groups many volunteers. People can also sign up to help or to offer essential items, opportunities and services. “We have responded to more than 300 requests for help,” said Ortiz. “We mobilized our volunteers to get laptops to more than 700 students to increase accessibility to learning, and we delivered countless meals and groceries through partnerships with Mystic Valley Elder Services, the Greater Malden Asian American Community Coalition, Bread of Life, the YMCA and veterans organizations.” Malden Neighbors teamed up with Stock Pot Malden to deliver 300 meals a week for 10 weeks to residents in Malden and Chelsea, which was hit particularly hard by the virus. “The food insecurity there is staggering,” said Ortiz. The neighbors have also picked up prescriptions for people and delivered blue trash bags to homes. They have helped renters in need with referrals to City Life, which offers assistance to people in danger of eviction, and helped mothers get diapers through Action for Boston Community Development. “Thanks to our mask-making mavens, we have constructed 1,500 cloth masks and distributed them to our neighbors,” said Ortiz, who added that Malden Neighbors has also donated medical grade N-95 masks to Cambridge Health Alliance. “My ask tonight is simple,” said Ortiz, who put out a call for donations of cleaners, paper goods and nonperishable food items. Any donations can be dropped off at the senior center with Community Outreach Coordinator Karen Colón Hayes, who Ortiz said has been a tremendous support helping the Malden Neighbors with countless issues and details. Although requests for assistance have started to slow down, Ortiz said she is worried about what lies ahead, particularly with renters who have lost their jobs and are in danger of being evicted. “I am really concerned we are going to lose a lot of our working class and lower income folks that really help make a diverse Malden,” she said.

Page 6 THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, June 19, 2020 Sen. Lewis supports bill to invest in transportation infrastructure and new MBTA leadership O n June 11 the Massachusetts Senate passed a bill to invest in municipal transportation projects and establish a new leadership board for the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA). The bill, An Act financing improvements to municipal roads and bridges, authorizes $300 million in funding for municipal roads and bridges through bonding, an $80 million increase over the 2019 funding level. The legislation also establishes a new seven-member MBTA Board of Directors to succeed the current oversight body, which is known as the Fiscal Management and Control Board. The MBTA Board of Directors will be responsible for governing and exercising corporate powers of the MBTA. “Especially as our Commonwealth faces ongoing economic uncertainty and turmoil, it’s vital to make sure that our transportation infrastructure is safe, accessible, reliable, and accountable to the public,” said State Senator Jason Lewis. “By encouraging local investment in vital infrastructure and ensuring strong public oversight of the MBTA, this legislation will keep our transportation systems working for all who need them.” The bill includes the following components: • Increases the Chapter 90 bonding to $300 million, an increase of $80 million over the 2019 investment. This funding will support transportation infrastructure projects in cities and towns. • Creates a professional and Jason Lewis State Senator diverse MBTA Board of Directors by requiring the Governor’s five appointments to include a member with experience in transportation operations and safety, a member with experience in public or private finance, a member with experience in transportation or urban planning, a member who is a representative of a labor organization, and a member who has municipal government experience in the service area of the MBTA. The Secretary of Transportation will serve as an ex-officio member, and one member will be appointed by the MBTA Advisory Board. Additionally, at least two members of the MBTA Board of Directors must also serve on the Board of Directors for the Massachusetts Department of Transportation. • Keeps the MBTA Board of Directors transparent and accountable by improving the public meeting process by requiring the Board to meet at least once per month and 20 times per calendar year. Members of the MBTA Board of Directors, except the Secretary of Transportation, will serve for four-year terms and have a stipend of $12,000 per year. • Provides greater autonomy and authority to the MBTA Board of Directors by empowering the Board to make decisions on hiring the MBTA General Manager and to delegate specific powers and responsibilities to the General Manager. Affirmative hiring votes will require at least five members if the Transportation Secretary is not in the voting majority. Voting on financial decisions by the MBTA Board of Directors on matters related to construction and acquisition that uses bonds or debt service payments must also have at least five members voting in the affirmative if the Transportation Secretary is not in the voting majority. Before the bill can be sent to the governor to be signed into law, legislators will work to reconcile the bill with a similar bill passed by the House of Representatives.

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, June 19, 2020 Page 7 ~Advocate Flashback – Worth Repeating~ A rose for a shoeshine boy By Richard Umbro I t was another busy Saturday morning as I weaved my way through the pushcart vendors in the Haymarket Square area of Boston. My destination was downtown, in the hub of the retail district, a pre-mall environment of classic department stores. It was late September or early October, circa 1945. I will venture to say that some readers of this article had not entered this world yet. I will also guess that most are reading it from that “Great Reading Room” in the sky. An autumn chill was in the air, as I pulled the frayed collar of my too light jacket up and fumbled with the sometimes non-functioning zipper, to ward off the cold. I had a full head of curly black hair in dire need of a haircut; that precluded the use of a hat, which I did not have anyway. I had just “thumbed” my way through the Sumner Tunnel from the east side of Boston: a neighborhood two shades more blue than most “blue collar” sections, where row upon row of “three deckers” was the habitat of need, not of choice. Cold water flats that housed predominately large families, struggling to keep a precarious foothold on the lowest rung of the then socio-economic ladder; and that humble goal was met with dignity. A place where the term “tenement district” most assuredly had its beginning. A place where one became street smart at too early an age. I was eleven years old and I was what they called, back in the day, a shoeshine boy. My black shoeshine box felt heavy that day and I adjusted the strap to relieve the tension on my shoulder. I checked inside to see if I had all my equipment. Brown and black cans of shoe polish, cleaning dauber and fl uid, brush and polishing cloths, and two extra La-Rosa coupons. Now you may be wondering, what on earth are La-Rosa coupons and what are they doing in an 11-year-old boy’s shoeshine box, in the middle of downtown Boston? Mysteries and enigmas of youth sometimes need explanation.

The petition also calls for a more diverse faculty, administration and board of trustees. Alumni are also asking for annual mandatory antiracism and implicit bias training for all school staff and a forum to discuss institutional racism and the school’s plans to address diversity and inclusion with current students and families. Finally, the former MVRCS students are also asking for the school to develop and publish an action plan to address issues of race, gender and sexuality directly with students instead of “perpetuating a culture of silence when these issues arise.” MVRCS Superintendent Alex Dan and Board of Trustees Chairman George Warren immediately sent out a letter to parents and guardians addressing the issues raised in the petition. “The school was founded, in part, on the premise of dismantling patterns of racism and bigotry that ultimately lead to an academic achievement gap,” they wrote. “We respectfully disagree with those who have asserted that the school’s actions perpetuate a culture of silence.” The letter refers to the 2017 complaints and inquiries from the Massachusetts Attorney General and the U.S. Attorney’s Office regarding the school’s uniform and hair policies, which many felt were administered in a way that discriminated against students of color. The school underwent an expansive internal investigation by a neutral third party that looked at discipline data, school climate, culture, policies, procedures, curriculum, enrollment, admissions and other factors. The information was presented to the Massachusetts Attorney General and the U.S. Attorney, and the inquiries from those agencies were closed. As a result of that review, the school created a Civil Rights Coordinator position, began implicit bias training for staff and made specific efforts to recruit faculty and staff of color. Dan and Warren acknowledged that recruiting teachers and staff of color was a challenge because of the small applicant pool, the school’s limited funding for salaries and other factors, such as longer schoolday hours. However, they shared statistics that show MVRCS is ahead of other districts in regard to staff diversity. The MVRCS student body is made up of 54.8 percent minority students, including 17.7 percent African Americans, 22.8 percent Asians, 9.4 percent Hispanics, .03 percent Native Americans and 4.6 percent of students from multiracial backgrounds. This year, 12.8 percent of the faculty and staff were people of color. In comparison, as of 2019, Malden’s faculty and staff included 11.4 percent people of color with 72.1 percent minority students. Dan and Warren said the school conducts comprehensive full-faculty trainings each year in the areas of antidiscrimination, anti-bullying, and anti-harassment. “Mrs. Asha Nair serves as our Civil Rights Coordinator and, in addition to holding weekly, drop-in, after school office hours for students and parents, she has convened an annual Civil Rights Open Forum event each year,” explained Dan and Warren. “In summary, MVRCS has taken active and assertive measures to ensure that issues of inclusion are identified and remedied, and that all students are able to learn in a climate that supports academic achievement and personal development,” they wrote.

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, June 19, 2020 Page 9 Malden Democrats issue “Statement on Brutality, Lynching, and Lawless Murder of Black, Indigenous and People of Color” A t its June 13 meeting, which was held online, the Malden Democratic City Committee (MDCC) discussed and adopted a statement in response to the brutal murder of George Floyd. (See statement below.) MDCC is the local arm of the Massachusetts Democratic Party. Meetings of the Malden Democrats, which are typically held monthly, are open to the public, with local Democrats and prospective Democrats especially welcome. For more information, contact MDCC at (617) 420-2303 or maldendemocrats@gmail. com. Anyone interested in learning more about Malden Democrats can also visit www.maldendemocrats.org, sign up for the email list and follow the group on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/groups/MaldenDems) and on Twitter (@maldendems). The Statement: The Malden Democratic City Committee strongly condemns the ongoing injustices of brutality, lynching, and lawless murder of Black, Indigenous, and People of Color at the hands of police and vigilante White supremacists. We recognize that we must become the stalwart allies that Black, Indigenous, and People of Color deserve and require. We not only recognize that Black Lives Matter, we take accountability for our failures and demand that our Democratic leaders, elected officials, and candidates support the movement for justice, equity and inclusion, and condemn systemic racism. We acknowledge the need to hold our Democratic leaders and elected officials accountable to defend and support Black, Indigenous, and People of Color all of the time, and not just when it is convenient. We recognize and appreciate the steps that have recently been made by the City of Malden with the acceptance of the Obama Foundation’s “Commit to Action” pledge which calls for Malden to: 1. REVIEW your police use of force policies. 2. ENGAGE your community by including a diverse range of input, experiences, and stories in your review. 3. REPORT the findings of your review to your community and seek feedback. 4. REFORM your community’s police use of force policies. We appreciate this first step, and also recognize that there is still more work to do to expose and eliminate systemic racism, foster equitable treatment for all members of our community, and to reaffirm human rights and civil liberties in our community. We acknowledge that our only path forward is one of serious self-analysis, critique, and reform. We hereby establish the Action and Accountability Subcommittee of the Malden Democratic City Committee dedicated to ensuring that real change and progress is made in our community, both within the Malden Democratic City Committee and by those we have elected to lead. This Subcommittee will also ensure that the City follows through on its above pledge. We commit to making a financial contribution to the Massachusetts Bail Fund by June 30, 2020. We recognize that our Democratic leaders and elected officials must also act on environmental justice, education justice, health justice, housing justice, and economic justice, as well as, criminal justice; and that we will not be successful without the inclusion of the voices of Black, Indigenous, and People of Color. We acknowledge that our commitments here are incomplete, and must expand to include other needs articulated by Black, Indigenous, and People of Color. We expect Democratic leaders, elected officials, and candidates to take direction and follow the leadership of leaders and members who are Black, Indigenous, and People of Color. We demand that our Democratic leaders, elected officials, and candidates support policies that help achieve the following goals: • Immediately declare racism a Public Health Emergency in the City of Malden, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and the United States. • Voting by mail and other voting reforms that increase participation and reduce barriers to access and disenfranchisement in communities of Black, Indigenous, and People of Color. • Intentional efforts to make City services and employees more responsive to the needs of our diverse community, including the teaching of history and social sciences in the public schools about the lived experiences of Black, Indigenous, and People of Color, including information on recognizing and decoding racist and dog whistle statements, and including diverse voices and experiences throughout school curricula. • The hiring of a Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Officer empowered to make real changes in the City, by holding Human Resources, and department heads accountable for inaction.

Their destination at the end of the line is a bag or box of food for free, purportedly due to not having enough money to buy any. What’s wrong with that picture? The cause and effect of the aforementioned are multifaceted, most prominent is the perception that a robust economy exists, when in facuality it does not. Particularly less when a crisis arrives in the form of a lethal pandemic. It is a false economy. An economy that devolves into two distinct camps. Those who have and those who have not. Rather than dwell on analytical statistics and archaic mathematical minutiae, several alarming points of fact are to be noted: both on the national and local levels. At one time on the national level our country employed tens of thousands of workers in the shoe, garment, automotive, major appliance and component parts industries, in the manufacture and retailing of a domestic product. These companies provided defined pensions, livable wages and health plans. However, most corporations, through avarice and indifference, decided to shut down factories, lay off all workers and ship all their tooling and expertise to foreign countries, leaving a vast irreversible void in the economic infrastructure. The resulting consequences cast most of the middle class into the throes of those on the lowest rung of the socioeconomic ladder, creating a virtual caste system, ripe for a Marxist-Lenin ideology of division and social unrest. To exacerbate this inequity, corporations set up their ~ LEGAL NOTICE ~ MALDEN BOARD OF APPEAL PUBLIC HEARING The Malden Board of Appeal will hold a public hearing on Wednesday, July 8, 2020 6:30 pm Eastern Time (US and Canada), via remote hearing, on Petition 20-003 by Patrick P.

This led to enormous profits that did not trickle down to the disenfranchised. In place of investing these profits into factories, growth and jobs, it was funneled into stock buybacks, stockholder dividends and all about Dow Jones and Wall Street. This division of the income and wealth gap grew exponentially, giving rise to the phenomenon of a monetary oligarchy, resulting in 95 percent of the wealth owned by 5 percent of the populace – a fragile house of economic cards destined to fall at the least ill wind. When a majority of the people are working two jobs to make ends meet and are still in poverty, more than meek protest is inevitable. The staccato cadence of jackboot, brown shirt and anarchy are not far in the distance. “Those who refuse to remember the mistakes of the past are doomed to repeat them.” If a worker relying on food stamps and living on a low wage cannot produce a product as simple as a roll of toilet paper because that factory has been closed, then the rich man that was responsible for that imbroglio cannot go out with all his millions to buy one; there are none! That in its simplest form, bizarre as it sounds, is the epitome of an economy gone awry.” “A roll, a roll, by kingdom for a roll.” The following is not political; it is merely an opinion afforded by a many-splendored democracy that “We The People,” live in. Nationally, there are 435 United States Representatives and 100 Senators at a combined salary of over 93 million dollars per year, and they must share most of the blame for a flawed economy that only had the appearance of robust. Did they not hear that weakened economic tree fall in the forest? Of course they did! Their response was anecdotal, with one group offering legislation aimed at mitigation, that was either too weak and full of loopholes that did not pass muster. A partisan group attempted to weaken the Sarbanes-Oxley Act and the Dodd-Frank Act, regulatory legislation aimed at eliminating fraud. A third group, “Janus faced” and egregious, attempted to expand the nefarious practice of gerrymandering legislative districts; that is inherently a form of voter misrepresentation and suppression. Lastly, the ever-present lethargic group, that does nothing except tiptoe through the tulips and trip the light fantastic. Not to be excluded from fault is the Judiciary Branch, that seemingly august body of nine men and women who put on long black robes and refer to themselves as the Supreme Judicial Court. Most of the time their decisions are justifiable and equitable. However, some are questionable and are open to criticism. Decisions that inadvertently affect the economy, as finding in favor of “Citizens United,” a five to four majority vote. This allowed large corporations, under the guise of “corporate personhood,” unlimited amounts of money to be spent on election campaigns under the First Amendment free speech rights. If a nine member Bench has an agenda, their five to four decisions allow candidates for office their own agendas to fashion another 2008 meltdown, enlarging the economic crack in the democratic foundation. As to the issue of gerrymandering, on June 27, 2019, the Supreme Court ruled that Federal Judges have no power to stop politicians from drawing electoral districts to expand their party’s power. An imminent implosion of the Judicial, Legislative and Executive branches. Walk down any Main Street small town U.S.A. and you will view the transformation of an industrial based economic giant into one of a service and hospitality connected one. Gone are the ice cream parlors, curtain shops, candy stores, drug stores, large retail chains and bakeries. Replaced by signs in garish neon proclaiming the following: “We buy gold, checks cashed here, for lease/sale, lottery tickets, pawn shop, marijuana sold here,” also empty stores with plywood covered front doors. An ugliness to even rival the picture of “Dorian Gray.” City Councils have a duty to fund liabilities and face pressure to balance a budget. If they don’t do enough, there is a shortfall, if they do too much it may become “draconian.” A small business owner’s worst nightmare is to observe workmen installing parking meters and kiosks at his front door, while opening his mail to find his taxes have gone up. Perhaps a fresh perspective utilized will be to invite a large, quality, well-established retail store to the downtown area, offering them a tax incentive to anchor the Main Street. Small stores will feed on the aftermarket flow. Revenue derived from lottery, parking tickets and casinos is ephemeral and fallow; it is without root and destined to bear tainted fruit. After reading this article, you may have surmised that this writer is in the autumn of his years. And if you did the math, you are correct; I am well into my octogenarian years.

MALDEN | FROM PAGE 2 playing at the Jenkins Auditorium back in 1973 a short while back. The photo was taken by well-known Maldonian (MHS Class of 1973) Kenny Mazonson. Stevie did a short set of his material at the Jenkins at the behest of one of our beloved educators at the time, Mrs. Phillips. The announcement came early in the day that an “emergency gathering for the whole school” was to take place almost immediately. For some odd reason, the sophomore class was not invited – so much for the “whole school.” Once all were seated, to the delight of the student body assembled, our Principal (Arthur Boyle) announced from the stage that “Steve Wonder (not “Stevie” as he was known to all) was in the Auditorium.” Stevie comes striding down the Aud steps accompanied by Mrs. Phillips dressed in all his 1973 sartorial splendor! From the story I have heard, another educator, Mrs. Clifford, had become friends with Stevie’s manager while the Class of 1973 were doing a Sickle Cell Anemia Fundraiser. Although sophomores weren’t initially invited, as soon as word spread who was in the house, teachers soon relented, and the rest of the student body came rushing in. I had a prime seat already. I had a “study hall” across from the Jenkins, so as soon as I got wind of what was going on, I did not hesitate. Mrs. Phillip’s son Brian remembers the day like this: “I was in 8th grade, only 14 at the time and I really lucked out being there. I knew Stevie was famous, but I don’t think it really hit me HOW big a deal it was till he won all those Grammys a few months later and the years that followed. I was just starting to discover music in general and my own personal taste. Sadly, I think I only have one picture and It appeared in the yearbook that year. I know there are others floating around somewhere, my mom, who orchestrated the whole thing recently moved in with my sister and her husband in Virginia and photos she had are probably packed away somewhere.” Stevie played a short set. I remember being awestruck, as were most in the Jenkins that day, Stevie being one of the biggest recording artists of the day and already on his way to becoming an icon. We wanted it to last forever; it certainly does in our collective memories, but Mr. Boyle finally took the stage and announced (and I quote), “Mr. Wonder, the boys and girls have to get back to class.” Helen Mae (Battle) Phillips was described as a “wonderful and gracious woman” with a “gentle spirit and caring ways.” She died in April of 2014 at 89 years young. “This is the end, beautiful friend, this is the end, my only friend, the end...” Police Chief Molis gets it. He grew up on the same streets he does police work on. Why wouldn’t he get it?! He knows the neighborhoods, the actors (good and bad) and why it is so important to reach out to all members of the community. He even remembers the Brother Gilbert Carnival held at Brother Gilbert Stadium way back in the prehistoric days of Malden! His recent statement weighing in on the turmoil now engulfing the country was classic Kevin Molis, MC Class of 1975 – words of wisdom and well chosen. Same goes with other homegrown police talent, guys and gals like George MacKay, Noelle Bowie-Pierce, Kevin Killion, Kevin “K Mac” McKenna and Joey Walker. They also ran the same streets as Chief. Malden is their home. They have a vested interest in the good and welfare of Malden. Great individuals and awesome police. Joe has not changed a bit. A grizzled vet at this point, on the force for 26 years (one behind Kevin). I remember Joey vividly as a fresh-faced youngster hanging out at Devir Park. He and his little buddies (including Kevin Killion), Paul Burns, Johnny Bionelli and Kevin & Gregory Larson would shag errant foul balls hit into the Fells or onto Malden Street for the Augustine Athletics of the Inter-City Baseball League. In return they would get two dollars and a pat on the head from Stevie Ring. Joe and his brother Jimmy were fixtures at Devir. I remember the two Walker brothers spending an inordinate amount of time under the shade trees along Emerald Street doing arts & crafts, never leaving the side of the (very pretty) Park Instructor at Devir, Diane Wishoski. Good taste even at age 13! Joe was spotted on a detail recently on Exchange Street. Cannot mistake that great smile of his. We traveled down that long road, Edgeworth memory lane, until traffic picked up and Joe was called to duty. Postscript: Domenic P. DiSario, 1955-2020, friend, mentor, wicked good guy. More to follow.

Page 12 THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, June 19, 2020 “Dangerous” times: Malden’s Dana Rosenblatt became a New England hero in the boxing ring in the 1990s, Part 2 Malden fighter helped fuel local boxing interest renaissance, became a valued benefactor By Steve Freker M uhammad Ali, “The Greatest,” a product of Louisville, Kentucky, never did it. Neither did Mike Tyson, who grew up on the “mean streets” of Brooklyn, N.Y., one of the most feared boxers of all time. Neither did Manny Pacquaio, Sugar Ray Leonard or Evander Holyfield, not a one of them. Even the most famous fictitious fighter in history, Rocky Balboa – he has a statue erected at top of 72 steps he made famous at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, he never did it either. But Malden’s Dana Rosenblatt did. He fought on a professional fight card in his hometown, right smack in the middle of Malden, Mass., at Macdonald Stadium, no less. Rosenblatt fought at Macdonald Stadium on August 11, 1994 We suppose that guys who take up residence in places like Las Vegas and New York City after they make it big in the ring could say they mixed it up in their hometown. But this was a rarity, when on August 11, 1994, “Dangerous” Dana Rosenblatt took on Canadian middleweight Jacques LeBlanc before a monster crowd of nearly 7,000 at Macdonald Stadium on Pearl Street. It was certainly a historic night on many counts. For starters, it was the first time a professional fight card was ever held outder construction, new fieldhouse at the stadium itself. For decades, generations of Malden High football players had geared for storied Golden Tornadoes football games in the far from cozy confines of a ramshackle, steel-plated Quonset Hut – a refugee from a U.S. Army base somewhere out West.

Selected evenings of multiple boxing bouts had been held in the past at the Irish American Club and they even held professional wrestling at Malden High School’s gym before that night, but nothing on this scale. The unique nature of the event did not stop there. The evening affair also was a major fundraiser for the then unMayor Ed Lucey led the push for Rosenblatt boxing fundraiser Then Mayor Ed Lucey, a lifelong fan of all sports in Malden, spearheaded the drive to hold the boxing card at the stadium, when Rosenblatt and his management team agreed to the proposal by the city. The Golden Tornado Club, the booster club for Malden High athletics, then led by the late Jerry Robbins as president, quickly got behind the idea and pledged its full support. With the backing and blessing of Rosenblatt and his manager, all proceeds from the night of boxing would go toward the Macdonald Stadium fieldhouse construction project to benefit Malden High athletes.

(Courtesy Photo) erosity is believed to have funneled in the neighborhood of $100,000 toward the new fieldhouse, a remarkable display of largesse from the young boxer, as thousands descended on the Malden football field, paying $15.00 a pop for admission. After many months of planning and excitement that year, the big night arrived; the previous evening, at Anthony’s in Malden, was the official weigh-in ceremony, followed by a reception at the well-known Malden function hall. Malden’s city leaders hobnobbed with fight fans from their own community as well as plenty of others Rosenblatt had drawn from all over New England and beyond. In addition to traditional fight fans, he drew those new to the game as well. Rosenblatt also developed a whole new generation of fans from the Jewish community at large in New England, proudly wearing the Star of David, a symbol of his faith, on his trunks every fight night. GOLDEN TICKET: Here’s a look at one of the tickets for the memorable “Fight Night” featuring “Dangerous” Dana Rosenblatt and Jacques LeBlanc fighting at Macdonald Stadium in Malden. (Courtesy Photo) He came into the fight perfect at 20-0 The then 22-year-old middleweight had enjoyed nothing but success in his 2 1/2-year old career, streaking to a still unbeaten, 20-0 record to start his professional career. His most notable win to date was a firstround knockout of Sean Fitzgerald nine months earlier at Foxwoods Resort and Casino (his third fight in Connecticut) to capture his first championship belt, the USA New England Middleweight Title. His opponent, LeBlanc, was certainly no stiff. On the contrary, the native of the New Brunswick Province of Canada was the oldest and one of the most experienced fighters Rosenblatt would encounter. At 30 years old, LeBlanc came in at 23-8-2 in his career, which had begun three years earlier. After fighting most of his earlier bouts in Canada and Australia, LeBlanc had run up a 19-3 mark before he began to seriously upgrade his competition. Though he came into his matchup with Rosenblatt on the heels of four straight losses, all four of those defeats had

Just four months earlier, in his last fight, LeBlanc had also gone the distance, 10 rounds, in a very close decision loss to an up-and-coming brawler who would later figure largely in Rosenblatt’s career – Vinny Pazienza – at Foxwoods. So, LeBlanc was no handpicked foil to make sure Rosenblatt looked good in front of the home crowd. It sure looked like a battle would ensue, and it did. Rosenblatt the winner in front of 7,000 fans Fighting in the main event, Rosenblatt and LeBlanc went toe-to-toe and entertained the crowd throughout, trading punches all night. In the end, it was another fight that went the distance for LeBlanc, but another unanimous decision loss, this time to Rosenblatt, the literal hometown hero, who raised his gloves in victory before 7,000 cheering fans. “What a fantastic event! Everyone who participated in the planning…all did a great job,” recalled Keith Swerdlick, who served as top staff member in Mayor Lucey’s office. Swerdlick, who now resides in Derry, Northern Ireland, was involved in “A-Z planning for the fundraising event” and he checked in with The Advocate after reading last week’s Part One of this series. He reminded us that Modern Continental donated the majority of the materials, including the bricks, for the fieldhouse project and that many other businesses in Malden chipped in with either financial or in-kind donations. “It was truly a community effort, starting with Malden’s own, Dana Rosenblatt,” Swerdlick said. “It was truly a remarkable undertaking, capped by a memorable night.” The former maywas a winner that night, from Rosenblatt to the many fans he thrilled and new ones he made that night, to the athletes of Malden High, who to this day, 26 years later, reap the benefits of using the now-named Domenic Fermano Fieldhouse. A plaque signifying Rosenblatt’s outdoor boxing extravaganza that night is proudly displayed at the stadium today. Hometown win a major stepping stone as Malden boxer signed with Top Rank’s Arum From that day onward, the hometown victory appeared a major stepping stone for Rosenblatt, as bigger venues and tougher opponents followed. In another major move, Rosenblatt took a bigger step, joining the fold of legendary Top Rank Boxing promoter Bob Arum. Three months after the Malden fight, on Dec. 14, 1994, he fought for the first time in his career at another “hometown” bout, headlining a Top Rank/Bob Arum card at the Boston Garden. Rosenblatt (22-0) did not disappoint, when he won by decision when opponent Frank Savannah did not answer the bell to return to the fight in Round Eight, thus awarding the Malden fighter his second belt, the WBC Continental Americas Middleweight Championship. Rosenblatt kept fighting solid opponents in 1995 – and kept winning. He successfully defended his belt three times, including his first fight in the “Disneyland” of Boxing, Caesar’s Palace, Las Vegas, Nev. He knocked out Chad Parker in the first round on May 6, 1995. Rosenblatt’s momentum continued as he soared to 28-0 with wins over Troy Williams in Orleans in August that year, then a decision over Floyd Williams at the Garden in October. Six months later he won his third title belt, the World Boxing Union (WBU) middleweight title, with an impressive, second-round knockout of former Olympic Gold Medalist Howard Davis Jr. at the TD Garden. It seemed the sky was the limit for Rosenblatt and the newest “biggest fight of his career” loomed for the 24-year-old Malden fighter and another title shot, this time against the 33-yearold Rhode Island-based Vinny “The Pazmanian Devil” Pazienza. Rosenblatt-Pazienza in “The Neighborhood War” This fight was for the WBU Super Middleweight Title and was a Top Rank bout at Bally’s in Atlantic City, being broadcast nationally on USA Network. Many saw Rosenblatt, the current WBU Middleweight Champion, as the young up-and-comer, the man who might replace Pazienza as “the best fighter from New England,” according to Boxing Monthly, It was billed as “The Neighborhood War,” meaning an intra-New England battle. This irritated Pazienza to no end, as he regarded all his fights of international note, as he had won 40 fights (40-6) and multiple titles to date. Never a man of few words, Pazienza stoked the flames with a constant stream of derogatory remarks thrown Rosenblatt’s way, personalizing the matchup and declaring his superiority in every way. The fight certainly didn’t start that way as Rosenblatt took some hits himself, but essentially battered Pazienza with combos and other punches, busting up Pazienza’s nose in the second round and opening cuts above his eyes in the third. It all changed in the fateful fourth round. Entering Round Four, Rosenblatt had shut out Pazienza on all three of the judges’ scorecards. With just under a minute to go in the fourth round, Pazienza leaned forward, bent down at the waist, facedown and not even looking, and unloaded a big overhand right that landed square on the side of Rosenblatt’s face. For the first time in his career, Rosenblatt crashed down to the canvas. The crowd roared, but Rosenblatt got up, but appeared shaken and uneasy on his feet. Pazienza charged in and began unloading combos to the body and head as Rosenblatt backed up into the ropes. A big left hook snapped back his head, and the ref moved in, waving his hands to stop the fight. The frenzied Pazienza apparently didn’t register the sign and kept throwing haymakers, one catching the ref Tony Orlando in the face and sending him to the canvas, a wild scene, played out on national television, for sure. First loss for Rosenblatt and a costly one According to a Boxing Monthly story at the time, Rosenblatt “was gracious in defeat,” saying, “He’s [Pazienza] the better man tonight. There’s no excuses – he’s the better man tonight. He used his experience and I give him a LEGACY: Dana Rosenblatt’s plaque on display at Macdonald Stadium. lot of credit.” Despite the vitriol before the match, Pazienza did congratulate the Malden fighter after the match for a tough fight, and they parted ways. It seemed destined that the two would fight again, though the rematch, won by Rosenblatt, did not come until over three years later, in November of 1999. Rosenblatt would go on to beat Pazienza in their rematch via a split decision. In doing so he won the vacant IBO Super Middleweight Championship. In the interim, Rosenblatt was beset by injuries, which dealt him setbacks in both training and competing in the ring. He was limited to just one fight in all of 1997, a decision over Glenwood Brown in which he broke his hand, in January at The Roxy in Boston to go to 23-1. It was almost as if he was jinxed since the Pazienza bout four and a half months earlier. Rosenblatt wanted to come back and dominate in his next shot in the ring, but the fractured hand was a giant stop sign. Injury shelved Malden fighter 15 months The Malden fighter tried to come back as soon as possible, but the broken hand took quite a while to properly heal, shelving Rosenblatt for 15 months. Before the Pazienza fight there had been talk of an upward spiral for Rosenblatt, more fights in Las Vegas – and even a possible matchup with top-ranked super middleweight Oscar De La Hoya. According to Bernard Fernandez, writing in “The Sweet Science” in a 2018 remembrance, “In the September 1995 issue of The Ring, Arum predicted that the day would come, a few years down the road, when fight fans would want nothing so much as a matchup of Oscar De La Hoya, by then filled out to a robust 160 pounds and well on his way to his stated goal of world championships in six weight divisions, and Rosenblatt.” “The dream fight for the biggest money of all time is Oscar and Rosenblatt,” Arum was quoted as saying. “That’s what I think of when I go to sleep at night.” However, the combination of the TKO loss to Pazienza and the untimely hand injury put the brakes on those projections on Rosenblatt’s future. Bigtime future fights never materialized “My whole life would have been different,” Rosenblatt said in 2018 in “The Sweet Science” of how his career, which went well for the most part but never reached the threshold of greatness, would now be regarded were it not for the loss to Pazienza. “I’ll take boxing first. After Pazienza, I probably would have fought (Sugar Ray) Leonard, before Leonard fought (Hector) Camacho. Bob (Arum) was promising Leonard. I would have made some money, maybe a million bucks, and, really, that wasn’t the Sugar Ray we all remember. Camacho proved that. I would have knocked out Leonard because he was done.” The lights got brighter for Rosenblatt in 1998, as picked up the pace, returned to the ring and won four fights. He improved to 32-1 and capped the year with an impressive win over former junior lightweight champ Terry Norris (47-7) in Foxwoods on Sept. 25, 1998, where he was awarded what would turn out to be the last belt of his career, the IBO World Super Middleweight Title. Rosenblatt won by unanimous decision despite Norris being awarded the last four rounds on all three judges’ scorecards. Rosenblatt scored early by connecting on his trademark left hooks, when Norris waded in on the Malden southpaw’s jabs. “I had an idea I could hurt him with the jab,” Rosenblatt said in Associated Press (AP) story on the fight. “At the end of the fight, Terry was just making his last stand.” In the ninth round, Rosenblatt seemed to run out of gas, according to the AP account. At the end of Round 11, Rosenblatt faltered, but managed to stay on his feet. Both fighters were gassed in Round 12, but SPORTS | SEE PAGE 15

Page 14 THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, June 19, 2020 Maldonian yearbook distribution conducted this week A cherished tradition of Malden High School senior year is upheld By Steve Freker W hen you get right down to it, the list of items on the high school senior "Treasure Hunt" is pretty lengthy. The coronavirus shortened that list in a hurry when schools local and across the nation were shut down due to health and safety reasons. Initial casualties included the Senior Prom, Awards Nights for scholarships and academic groups, Senior Nights and at the top of the list, Graduation Day. Most of those events are gone forever, unfortunately, as the Class of 2020 has borne the brunt of the losses on the remembrance "treasure trail". A number of school systems, including the Malden Public Schools have worked and planned diligently to restore an outdoor Graduation Day ceremony to try and ease the blow by providing seniors their biggest honor. At present, as long as local, state and federal guidelines permit it, Malden High School graduation for the Class of 2020 will be held on Monday, August 3 at Macdonald Stadium with ample physical distancing, reduced school officials on the field and a restrictive number of attendees from friends and family. One other time-honored traniors were officially presented copies of the school yearbook, the 2020 Maldonian. It was originally planned for the Maldonian yearbooks to be distributed on May 28 with the caps and gowns, in a carefully monitored fashion in a large space at the Holden Street parking lot next to MHS.But a delay in the delivery missed the distribution by a few hours and an alternative plan was made. On Tuesday, this week, longdition was also upheld this past week, when Malden High setime Maldonian advisors Jim Valente and Beth Horwitz manned a yearbook distribution line that was similar to the cap and gown day, with adequate physical distancing and Mystic Valley Elder Services partners with Action Ambulance to streamline communication with Meals on Wheels consumers N early 2,000 consumers in 11 cities and towns rely on Mystic Valley Elder Services (MVES) for Meals on Wheels home delivery, with close to 3,000 meals provided each day. Especially for frail, homebound elders, the nutrition services provided by MVES can be a lifeline. However, what happens when a new pandemic or inclement winter weather interferes with Meals on Wheels delivery? To address these challenges, MVES has partnered with Action Ambulance to unroll a revolutionary phone communication system to ensure consumers are alerted in a timely fashion to changes, cancellations or delays in their Meals on Wheels service. As soon as MVES becomes aware of a situation that will interfere with a Meals on Wheels delivery, MVES alerts Action Ambulance, and in turn Action Ambulance sends out automated calls through a state-of-the-art phone system that can reach up to 2,500 consumers in less than one hour. The prerecorded calls come from an MVES nutrition program phone number, ensuring that consumers know the calls are legitimate and not from telemarketers. The messages feature the voice of a Nutrition Services team member. According to MVES Nutrition Director Angie Fitzgerald, the partnership with Action Ambulance –which has been in place for six years – has ensured seamless communication between the MVES nutrition program and its many consumers. She points out that Action Ambulance provides the phone alert system free of charge to MVES. “They are always just a call away when we need their assistance,” she said. “I simply send our list of active consumers to Action Ambulance and they ensure the calls are made.” “Working with Action Ambulance has streamlined our communication process and made it more instantaneous,” said Fitzgerald. “It truly is such a great partnership and has helped us send out reassuring messages to our consumers during the COVID-19 pandemic.” Action Ambulance CEO Michael Woronka said, “Action Ambulance recognizes the critical need Mystic Valley fills by providing a range of support services to the disadvantaged and frail within the community. These services allow for as many people as possible to remain in their homes or group setting while keeping their independence. We are proud to support an organization such as Mystic Valley Elder Services especially during these uncertain times.” “Our Meals on Wheels program offers much more than just a meal. It’s a friendly face at the door, a warm exchange. I am very proud of what we do. Seeing firsthand why the service is essential and who is being served is such a privilege,” said Fitzgerald. To learn more about Meals on Wheels, visit www.mves.org or call 781-324-7705. June is LGBTQ Pride Month, celebrated each year to honor the 1969 Stonewall Uprising in New York City. Each year, Malden High School raises the Pride Flag on its flagpole in front of the school and on June 1, Principal Christopher Mastrangelo oversaw the raising of the Pride Flag at MHS. Customarily the members of the MHS Rainbow Lions Gay-Straight Alliance participate in the ceremony along with members of the school community but it was not possible this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Unfortunately, part of the yearbook tradition in the past was the time set aside right after distribution where students sign each other's yearbooks with personal messages of goodwill. Teachers and administrators often sign the students' books with "good luck" messages as well. This year that part of the senior experience was not possible due to the coronavirus restrictions. "It went very well. We were able to get most of the yearbooks to the students and they were very excited to finally have them," Valente said. "It's something they get keep forever and they will be looking at their Maldonian in years to come." Valente, an MHS media and English educator, also teaches a year-long class in which students work daily on all aspects of putting Maldonian yearbook together.They start from scratch at the beginning of the school year and the student-driven process involves every detail, from design to photos and text. It's a monumental, annual task and the end result is a keepsake student will treasure forever. "There is so much work that is put into the yearbook," Valente said. "The students work very hard every year under strict deadlines and they deserve all the credit for the finished product. "We are very proud of what they do and how they do it," Valente added. "It's great we were able to brighten up the year for our seniors by getting them their yearbooks." Pride flag raised over Malden High

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, June 19, 2020 Page 15 Northeast Metro Tech announces appointment of school’s first Diversity and Inclusion Coordinator W AKEFIELD – Superintendent David DiBarri is pleased to announce that Northeast Metropolitan Regional Vocational High School has appointed its first Diversity and Inclusion Coordinator. The district’s School Committee approved the creation of the position and the appointment of Dawon Dicks to the role at its Thursday, June 11 meeting. Dicks has worked as a Prevention and Intervention Coordinator at Northeast Metro Tech for the past year and has worked with the administrator of student services and guidance department to identify student needs that require intervention and prevention services. He joined the district in April 2019, and also launched the Student Athlete Leadership and Mentoring (SALM) program at the school. He is additionally an assistant football coach. “Right and ‘wrong’ can be hard, but love, kindness, and integrity are choices we can all make in the pursuit of equality, and equality for all of us,” Dicks said. In his new position, Dicks is tasked with working on the district’s goal to ensure Northeast Metro Tech is supportive of all students and to reduce opportunity and achievement gaps based on race, ethnicity, disability, gender and other factors. As Diversity and Inclusion Coordinator, he will be responsible for working with the administration to address issues of equality, inclusion and cultural proficiency through professional development and group curriculum implementation with students. “Systemic racism in particular is being examined and addressed at every level nationwide at this moment, and we felt it was our duty to take this step to promote diversity, compassion and acceptance at Northeast Metro Tech,” DiBarri said. “Dawon has become an invaluSTATEMENT | FROM PAGE 9 • Investment in the neighborhoods of Black, Indigenous, and People of Color through investments in parks, schools, community health, and housing; and in affordable housing throughout the city. • Immediately make available online for public inspection, any Malden Police Department manuals, protocols, trainings, or policies on police activity, including but not limited to use of force, immigration procedure, crowd control, vehicle stops, patrol, investigation, No Knock Warrants and internal affairs. • Regular public reporting from SPORTS | FROM PAGE 13 managed to hang on and wait for the judges, who went with Rosenblatt. Rematch with Pazienza, time for revenge The beat went on for Rosenblatt, as he won a pair of fights in early 1999 at Foxwoods (where he finished undefeated for his career at that venue) to go to 35-1, setting up a rematch with Pazienza. The old enmities resurfaced and Pazienza, then 46-7, started his “making it personal” harangue against Rosenblatt, but this time the Malden fighter responded in a Boston Herald article to a question about whether Pazienza’s incessant “trash talk” offended him, with this response. “He [Pazienza] can say whatever he wants,” Rosenblatt said. “Every time he opens his mouth he just puts more money in my pockets.” Rosenblatt successfully deNortheast Metro Tech’s first Diversity and Inclusion Coordinator, Dawon Dicks (right), stands with 2020 graduate Joshua Yandoli.

The two men went at each with gusto that night. Pazienza knocked Rosenblatt down in Round Three, only the second time the Malden fighter ever got dropped (both by Pazienza). But he quickly recovered and got back up. Both fighters were cut over their right eyes and the blood flowed liberally. As was his M.O., Pazienza continually tried to bull-rush Rosenblatt, which worked for at least one punch in the first matchup in 1996, but this time Rosenblatt kept his spacing and counterpunched, again and again. Pazienza continued to get battered, but he would not go quietly. A telling stat at the end of the fight was the punch count, as Pazienza far surpassed Rosenblatt in punches thrown, 602456, but the Malden fighter connected on 106 (23%) to just 84 on the night for the Pazmanian Devil (14%). The fight was emotional for Rosenblatt, and the tears flowed freely, according to accounts, as he thanked his longtime supporters, as he avenged his only loss. Both men took punishment in this one as Rosenblatt needed 32 stitches in a hospital after the fight to close cuts over both eyes. Pazienza stewed in the second-place locker room that night, raging about how he got cheated by the judges. Shocker. Was there a “Paz curse” every time he fought the Rhode Island boxer? Who knows? The very next fight ended in bizarre fashion for Rosenblatt when he bumped heads with James Crawford in April of 2000 at Foxwoods. The fight had to be stopped in the second round when a deep cut in Rosenblatt’s forehead spurted blood and could not be closed. It was declared a draw, the first of Rosenblatt’s career, as he went 36-1-1. The cuts and bleeding had become recurring at this late point in Rosenblatt’s career as it was the sixth consecutive fight that resulted in Rosenblatt going to the hospital for repair work of some sort, according to Hartford Courant (Ct.) sports coverage. Rosenblatt won his 37th – and as it turned out, final victory – with a 12-round decision over Will McIntyre at Foxwoods on October 13, 2000. Again, injuries began to plague the Malden fighter. Another hand fracture was compounded by a torn right shoulder rotator cuff, a separated left shoulder and a torn labrum. Injuries caused layoff, followed by retirement Another lengthy layoff to recover for Rosenblatt, about 20 months – but he was not finished. The comeback trail again raised up, this time after nearly two years between fights. It did not last long. With under a minute left in the third round in a matchup with Juan Carlos Villoria, a serious, large cut opened up on the side of Rosenblatt’s face after Villoria head-butted him several times in succession. Blood gushed from Rosenblatt’s badly split cheek, and the referee stopped the fight and a technical draw was called. It was the second time in three fights Rosenblatt met this fate, in a fight he seemed destined to easily win. It was another unfortunate ending for Rosenblatt, and the fight turned to be his last. A few months after the fight, Rosenblatt announced he was retiring from the ring after 40 fights, a tremendous 37-1-2 record, with 23 knockouts. He never fought for a widely recognized world championship, and the mega fight with De La Hoya never materialized, but for a decade he thrilled and entertained many local and eventually, national fans, helping to fuel a bit of a renaissance of interest in “the sweet science” of boxing. His legacy lives on and he will be remembered as not only a champion in the ring, but also in his community, through his outreach to youths and the memorable fight in his hometown of Malden in 1994 that ended up making a new stadium fieldhouse a reality. A true model for youths, Rosenblatt was regarded as a tough as nails puncher with a big heart and a true purpose. Thanks for the memories, “Dangerous” Dana!

Page 16 THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, June 19, 2020 BUDGET | FROM PAGE 3 avvyavvya y niorvy Seniiooor vy ion r iori by Jim Miller What to Know About Advance Care Planning in the Age of Coronavirus Dear Savvy Senior, All this horrible coronavirus carnage got me thinking about my own end-of-life decisions if I were to get sick. Can you recommend some good resources that can help me create a living will or advance directive, or other pertinent documents? I’ve put it off long enough. Almost 70 Dear Almost, Creating a living will (also known as an advance directive) is one of those things most people plan to do, but rarely get around to actually doing. Only about one-third of Americans currently have one. But the cold hard reality of the novel coronavirus may be changing that. Here’s what you should know along with some resources to help you create an advance directive. Advance Directives To adequately spell out your wishes regarding your end-oflife medical treatment are two key documents: A “living will” which tells your doctor what kind of care you want to receive if you become incapacitated, and a “health care power of attorney” (or health care proxy), which names a person you authorize to make medical decisions on your behalf if you become unable to. These two documents are known as an “advance directive,” and will only be utilized if you are too ill to make medical decisions yourself. You can also change or update it whenever you please. It isn’t necessary to hire a lawyer to prepare an advance directive. There are free or low-cost resources available today to help you create one, and it takes only a few minutes from start to fi nish. One that I highly recommend that’s completely free to use is My Directives (MyDirectives.com). This is an online tool and mobile app that will help you create, store and share a detailed, customized digital advance directive. Their easy-touse platform combines eight thoughtful questions to guide you through the process. If you’re not computer savvy, ask a family member or trusted friend to help you. The advantage of having a digital advance directive versus a paper document is being able to access it quickly and easily via smartphone, which is crucial in emergency situations when they’re most often needed. If, however, you’d rather have a paper document, one of the best do-it-yourself options is the Five Wishes advance directive (they off er online forms too). Created by Aging with Dignity, a nonprofi t advocacy organization, Five Wishes costs $5, and is available in many languages. To learn more or to receive a copy, visit FiveWishes.org or call 850-681-2010. Another tool you should know about that will compliment your advance directive is the Physician Orders for LifeSustaining Treatment, or POLST (sometimes called Medical Orders for Life-Sustaining Treatment, or MOLST). A POLST form translates your end-of-life wishes into medical orders to be honored by your doctors. To learn more about your state’s program or set one up, see POLST.org. Readers should also know that if you’ve already prepared an advanced directive paper document, a POLST form or the VA advance directive form 10-0137, you can upload, store and share these documents too at MyDirectives.com. Finally, to ensure your fi nal wishes are followed, make sure to tell your family members, health care proxy and doctors. If you make a digital advance directive or have uploaded your existing forms, you can easily share them electronically to everyone involved. Or, if you make a paper advance directive that isn’t uploaded, you should provide everyone copies to help prevent stress and arguments later. 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. As the city moves forward, Molis said, it’s important to make sure that the police chief and the community share the same values and expectations. Rules need to be abundantly clear and the hiring process is critical. Molis also stressed the need to have a clear process in place for citizens to submit complaints about their interactions with the police. Anderson also questioned whether some police activities could be shifted to people who don’t have a badge and a gun. “How do we look at things best suited for the police?” he asked. “Putting cops in confrontation with the community is a problem,” said Molis. “Ordinances that are oppressive to poor people lead to police being identifi ed as oppressive,” he said. “We have not invested solving in health, social and economic problems, and we leave the police to pick up the pieces,” he said. Molis said incidents that involve mental health and substance abuse emergencies, family disputes and homelessness will always involve an initial intervention by the police. “A regular relationship with social service providers would be a great thing,” said Molis, who added that police repeatedly respond to individuals and families coping with those problems. He said providing outreach and services to those residents is the better strategy. “The best thing for any city, family or police department is when someone turns their life around,” he said. “It’s an uplifting thing for a cop who does his job for the right reasons.” Ward 2 Councillor Paul Condon asked about police interactions with Malden youths. Molis said cops constantly interact with kids both formally and informally. “It’s what they do,” said Molis. “They don’t have to be ordered to do it. Their philosophy allows them to become mentors and role models.” In addition to everyday interactions with kids on streets and athletic fi elds, Molis said, a police offi cer is assigned to the high school and the department has an active relationship with the Recreation Department. Ward 5 Councillor Barbara Murphy asked about police training and if a level-funded budget would force cuts in that area. Molis said police attend ~ Legal Notice ~ Invitation to Bid Malden Redevelopment Authority Construction of Trafton Park Improvements Notice to Bidders The Malden Redevelopment Authority invites the submission of sealed bids for the construction of park improvements consisting of site preparation and demolition, erosion and sedimentation control, drainage improvements, pedestrian paving, new playground equipment and poured-in-place rubber safety surfacing, porous and peastone surfacing, pre-cast and cast-in-place concrete curbing, timber edging, chain link fencing and gates, site furnishings, dugout structures, park sign, and landscaping.

June 19, 2020 40 hours of mandatory training each year as well as additional training funded by grants. “The curriculum evolves depending on current issues,” he said, adding that de-escalation, crisis intervention and identifying implicit bias have been woven into mandatory training. Murphy also asked about the use of body cameras. Molis said he is not philosophically opposed to cameras but added there is a cost for the equipment as well as the need to negotiate the use of cameras with the police unions. Councillor-at-Large Debbie DeMaria asked Molis if he would be open to more transparency through a citizens’ review board. Molis said he is open to more transparency through an opendoor policy for conversations with residents. He said a review board would require a more formal conversation about responsibilities and guidelines. “I think the more people who come to know who we are and what we are about will come away with a better feeling about the city they live in and who is out there doing their best to protect them,” said Molis. “I think this will be won or lost through the relationships we build.”

View all our listings at: CarpenitoRealEstate.com I n certain cases, it might make sense to shift the tax burden of capital gains from a Trust to a benefi ciary of the Trust. Once a Trust’s capital gain income exceeds $12,950, capital gain income will be taxed at a 20% federal rate. The rate in Massachusetts for long-term capital gain income is 5.05%. Investment income (including capital gains) that is not distributed to a benefi - ciary of a Trust will also be subject to an additional “net investment income tax” equal to the lesser of 1. The undistributed net investment income or 2. The excess of the Trust’s adjusted gross income over $12,750. This tax is an additional 3.8%. In contrast, an individual beneficiary of a Trust will receive the benefi t of a 15% capital gains tax rate on long-term capital gains (holding period of one year or more) and qualifi ed dividends until income exceeds $434,550 for a benefi ciary fi ling single and $488,850 for a benefi ciary fi ling married fi ling joint. Also, a Trust benefi ciary would not be subject to the net investment income tax until his income CAPITAL GAINS AND TRUSTS exceeds $200,000 if filing single and $250,000 if fi ling married filing joint. Therefore, a shift of capital gain income from a Trust to a benefi ciary could save as much as 8.8% in taxes. If the Trustee, pursuant to the Trust instrument, has the discretion to distribute income or principal to a Trust benefi ciary, that would allow the Trustee to shift the capital gain income to the benefi ciary. Capital gain income is considered a receipt of principal by the Trust. In order to shift capital gain income to a Trust benefi ciary, there must be a distribution of principal to the benefi ciary in the form of cash or other property. Keep in mind that this strategy would in no way be possible for an irrevocable Trust in the context of MassHealth (Medicaid) planning. An irrevocable Trust cannot allow for any distributions of Trust principal to the Settlor/income beneficiary of the Trust. If the Trust were to allow for that, MassHealth would consider the assets in the Trust countable for MassHealth eligibility purposes. Those assets in the Trust would then make the applicant ineligible for MassHealth benefits. If, on the other hand, the irrevocable Trust was set up for children with no MassHealth eligibility being sought in the future, then such principal distributions may be allowed pursuant to the terms of the Trust.

Ortiz was happy to hear from Ward 1 Councillor Peg Crowe, who explained that she and Christenson’s Special Assistant, Maria Luise, have been working through the details of a partnership between the City of Malden and the United Way. The next step is to present the idea to the mayor. Malden Neighbors have been trying to fi gure out how to keep the group going on a long-term basis. Along with some work and fundraising that would be required as part of a United Way partnership, Ortiz said, the Neighbors hope to continue to direct people to organizations that provide the resources they need. In addition to providing much-needed support to residents, Ortiz said, Malden Neighbors has played another important role in building community by offering new residents the chance to volunteer and connect with people throughout the city. She said it has been astounding to see how many people have jumped at the opportunity to reach out and help their neighbors in need during the pandemic. “It has been such an awful time, but such an amazing experience,” she said.

A feel good day, as in” Yes Dorothy,” there is a land called Oz. “Yes Virginia,” there is a Santa Claus.” Yes Marie,” they ate your cake. Even without your royal frosting. I arrived at my favorite spot; it was at the corner of Washington and Bromfield Streets, between Filene’s and Raymond’s department stores. I had a good view from this corner, to keep a watchful eye out for a patrol officer, who may ask if you had your license. You had to be 12 years old to obtain one. The skills of an “artful dodger” came early those days. With due deference to a protagonist of another story, from a different era. “Shine Sir?” I asked, as my first THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, June 19, 2020 My second customer was quite customer walked by. “Yes, I think I will,” he replied. His shoes had not been cleaned for quite a while, and the heels were run down. His pants lacked a crease, and a button on his jacket was missing. He projected the image of the underpaid clerk in a second rate store. However, this was a kindly man, one that may give you a tip. I finished quickly and tapped the side of my shine box to indicate completion. “Thanks kid, good job,” he said, and flipped me two quarters, the second as a tip. I was right about the poor soul. a different story. His shoes were newer and costly, his suit neatly pressed, and his tie was in a perfect Windsor knot. He was reading the stock market results from the previous day from a newspaper. He had nothing to say and he was the epitome of rampant hubris. There was not going to be a tip from this “dandy.” I was right about the lack of a tip. The cognitive powers of class distinction and social habits were the tangible lessons attained prematurely by shoeshine boys, on the mean streets of a city awash in apathy.

Her gaze was affixed directly at the exposed coupons in my shoes. Immune to embarrassment at this point, I pretended not to notice. “Young man, can you shine my shoes?” she asked. I turned in her direction and replied, “Yes Ma’am, I can.” I had shined women’s shoes before, I was not surprised. Her shoes were of high quality leather that came high to the ankle, and had a fashionable heel. Her skirt was long and draped to an appropriate length in relation to her shoe tops. Her waist-length jacket was trimmed in fur, something like on display in the window of I.J. Fox, a downtown Furrier. In her hand she was holding a round black satin box, with gold ribbon. Imprinted on the box in gold lettering was “French Shop.” This indicated that it was purchased in an exclusive shop on the seventh floor of Filene’s Department Store: where women of high fashion and financial means sat in stuffed chairs to watch models walk up and down, wearing the garment they were interested in buying. She asked all the questions a woman will ask: How old are you; where do you go to school; how many brothers and sisters in your family; do you give your mother money? Family-oriented questions in a pleasant manner. Unlike men, who rarely talked, save for an occasional grunt or incoherent mumble. “What is your name?” she asked. “Richard,” I replied. “But they all call me Richie.” A smile came to her face, a benevolent smile, one that captures the warmth and grace of a woman. “What is your name?” I asked. She laughed openly at the boyish innocence of my question, momentarily disarming her inherent composure. “Rose,” she said, smiling once more. I finished her shoes; they had a lustrous sheen. “They look beautiful,” she said, and from her purse she pressed into my hand five one dollar bills. Mesmerized and wideeyed by her generosity, I stuttered, “Thank you” several times. With a maternal-like pat to my cheek, as she was leaving, she said, “Now be sure to get home before dark.” I watched her for a long time as she walked down Washington Street, where women very discreetly turned their heads in admiration, some with jaundiced eyes of jealousy. She disappeared into that huddled mass of the good, the bad, the perfect and imperfect; caught up in the exciting vibrance of Saturday morning shopping. I never saw her again.
