Maldden alld a Vol. 32, No. 27 den AADD -FREEC ouncillor-at-Large Craig Spadafora has been in his post for all of the past 20 years. He knows a landmark issue when he comes across one. When it comes to fi nance, revenue and cost management, he doubles down, having been a seasoned professional in the high end of the fi nance industry for longer than that. When a pair of resolutions were off ered by fellow Malden Councillor-at-Large Carey McDonald at a recent City Council meeting, Councillor Spadafora did not mince any words. “These are the most important issues we must address as City Councillors, and we must work together to fi nd solutions,” Spadafora said. “We have no other choice. The fi nancial future of our city depends on it.” Councillors McDonald and Spadafora’s colleagues agreed.

The deadline for taking out nomination papers for Malden elected positions is July 31, and the deadline for submitting them to the Board of Registrars of Voters is the day after that, August 1. As it stands now, for the second consecutive election there will be a contested mayoral race. Three-term incumbent Gary Christenson has declared he will seek reelection to a fourth fouryear term, and challenger Lissette Aracely Alvarado has taken out papers and is collecting nomination signatures, according to information displayed by City Clerk Carol Ann Desiderio on the City of Malden’s website. For City Council, three ward Council seats are being challenged at this time, and a fourth candidate has taken out papers in the Councilor-at-Large race, as have all three at-large incumbents. The Ward 5 Councillor’s post being vacated by Council President Barbara Murphy is being contested at this time by two hopefuls. Councillor Murphy announced earlier this year she was not seeking reelection this year. If nothing changes by the July 31 deadline, fi ve ward Councillors would run unopposed in the fall election.

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, July 7, 2023 Page 3 ~ Malden Musings ~ “Stella Turns 90” D ebbie Gray-Silvestri dropped me a note recently to let me know of a “glorious gesture by some really caring people in this fabulous Malden community of ours.” In the spirit of full disclosure and with all due respect, Debbie Gray was inducted into my “Beautiful Women of Edgeworth All Time Hall of Fame.” I know that may sound awful by today’s socially aware standards, but what the heck, I just wanted to let Deb know that we all feel that (hubby) Richie is one lucky guy! So, Deb thought readers of the Advocate would be happy to see that there are “still great people out here in our sometime selfish and mean-spirited world.” Stella Pinkham turned 90 last week. Her Adams Street neighbors gave her a little surprise party with all her nearest and dearest attending (well, mostly all her nearest and dearest). Deb told me Bonnie Wayshak and her family along with nextdoor neighbors Dom and Sheila Fermano slipped into Stella’s backyard, set up some tables and chairs, fi lled the cooler with refreshments, presented her with a cake, and of course, everybody’s all-time fave, Pizza al Taglio. My note: I love how there are still neighbors looking after neighbors in Malden! Meanwhile at Mandi’s Hair Salon – where Stella has her hair styled on Saturdays – Deb also made sure her birthday wasn’t forgotten. Stella was serenaded with her birthday song, balloons were festooned everywhere, yet more birthday cake was consumed and her hair done gratis, a gift from Deb. A product of Edgeworth her whole life, Stella is a lovely and kindhearted human being. All agree on this. Happy birthday, Stella! It is said in “Malden Musings”... • On a Stella Pinkham side note, I have known Stella, basically, my whole life. We moved to Malden in 1963, and shortly after entering Emerson we were introduced to the many friends and neighbors we still call friends and neighbors, to this very day. Stella along with Nancy Cagno, Laura Damiano and Pat O’Conner keeping a close eye on their off spring are some of my earliest memories as we ran wild outside the Emerson School. A sweetheart of a woman, Stella has never failed to make me smile with that sparkling personality of hers. Her Sicilian Pizza? Forgetaboutit! My top three Sicilian slices: Dorothy Drago Levine’s square pie, Umberto Galleria on Hanover Street in the North End, and Adam hind the catcher that was hard to forget. His “strike 3” call was a sight to behold! Between bocce matches I chatted up K Mo and discovered that he is a big Gary Cherone/Extreme fan, citing Gary’s performance at the Freddie Mercury Tribute Concert at Wembley back in ’92 as the most dynamic 25 minutes of rock he’s ever witnessed. He also credits Gary for his uncanny ability to get his shot off against much taller opponents on the hoop court. Insert smiley face. • As we all know, the ForestStella Pinkham Street’s Stella Pinkham! Happy birthday, Stella, and many, many more. I’ll see you during the Procession at the Saint Rocco Feast! Stay well. • In loving memory of Dr. Claire L. MacDonald, April 20, 1959– June 6, 2023. Beautiful, inside as well as out. Sincerest condolences to the MacDonalds and the Baglios. • There was a rare Retirement Director at Malden City Hall Kevin (now a man of leisure) Morrison sighting at the Italian American Citizens’ Club last week. Kevin dominates the bocce court at the Club these days, as he once dominated the hoop court at Amerige Park in “Malden Back in the Day.” Kevin was also an outstanding baseball/softball umpire.

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, July 7, 2023 ~ In Remembrance ~ Page 5 More than just a boss to me By Joe McConnell F or the better part of three decades, there was one constant in my journalism career, and that was working for the Everett Advocate and its sister publications in Revere, Saugus and Malden. The Chelsea Advocate was started in Chelsea by James Donald Mitchell, Jr., who was a distinguished advertising executive for many years at the Malden Evening News, Medford Mercury and Melrose Evening News. He always wanted to publish a newspaper in his hometown after serving its residents in the political arena. But his passion was always in the print medium, while also understanding what the business was all about, and what readers wanted from their local newspaper. He eventually passed on that enthusiasm to his son, Jim, who came aboard in 1992. Within a year, they expanded into Everett and Revere. I witnessed that growth first-hand as their sportswriter, an association I was able to maintain to this day. That’s why when I read Jim’s Facebook post last Saturday I was erett” column that became a must-read every Friday from Day 1 in 1993. Throughout the years, I also James D. Mitchell, Jr. struck with sudden sadness. He stated that his dad had passed away on Friday at the age of 86, before elaborating eloquently on his well-rounded life. After reading Jim’s straight from the heart eulogy on his dad, so many fond memories started racing through my mind. I can honestly say my experiences writing for them was never dull. Jim’s dad never sat idly by if he saw a wrong that needed to be righted. He pointed out those indiscretions – many of them emanating from city government – in his popular “Sounds of Evhelped the Mitchells out as a photographer, typesetter and courier. At times, I was even Jim’s Uber driver, before there was ever such a thing. If he needed a ride home after many late nights wrapping up the papers at the offi ce, I’d give him a lift back to Chelsea. There were times he needed to get to an advertiser – even on weekends – and I’d be right there to help him out. I was just proud to be a part of a fast-growing business. Jim’s dad never got pushed around. But for those who didn’t have the wherewithal to defend themselves like special needs kids he was right there for them. Kids like Phil constantly hung out in the offi ce, because he always made them feel right at home. There was also the late Bobby C, an actor who had small parts in major motion pictures, who was misunderstood by many, but Jim’s dad made him feel important, and if he needed a few extra bucks, he was right there to give him some, or the ability to earn it by cleaning up the offi ce weekly. For me personally, there are so many stories. I will never forget him for his support of me when my mom passed away two days after 9/11. It was a Thursday, and I was coming into work when my dad called to tell me she had just died. I was on my way to Revere to pick up pictures for that week’s papers, but when I returned, I met Jim outside to tell him the sad news. He naturally told me to go home. I remembered Kristen, who helped the Mitchells paginate the papers back then, telling me afterwards that he was quiet for the rest of the day. He just quickly wrapped up Everett. Once done, Kristen stayed to fi nish up Revere, while he went home to call me to see if I was OK. The day of my mom’s wake he came to Somerville with his wife and son to pay their respects.

A year later, he helped me secure a mortgage on my condo with a letter of employment and how much he paid me. He’d also often say to anyone who’d listen that I was the greatest writer he ever knew, who never went to every game. Jim’s dad would make many of us who worked for him over the years feel like a part of his family. I carried that a step further about eight years ago when I used Joe Mitchell as a pen name, when I wrote for his Lynnfi eld Advocate to avoid any confl ict of interests with another North Shore publisher that employed me at that time. I didn’t think twice about it, because it seemed so natural for me, and that’s why the news of his death remains diffi cult for me to comprehend.

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, July 7, 2023 Page 9 RESOLUTIONS | FROM PAGE 1 ward actions which will, hopefully, guide us to solutions,” McDonald said. McDonald has spent the year as chairperson of the Council’s standing Finance Committee and has gotten a front row seat in viewing fi nancial data, mulling strategies – both budgetary and planning – and discussing and researching options when it comes to the city’s fi nancial standing, both present and future. Like Spadafora, who is an executive at nationally based Principal Securities, Inc., first-term Councillor McDonald holds an extensive background in fi nance and management as present Executive Vice President of the Unitarian Universalist Association, who formerly worked in senior budget and policy roles with both the Ohio Department of Education and the Ohio House of Representatives, before relocating to the greater Boston area about 10 years ago. One of the resolutions dealt with the fact that Malden’s expenses, especially for new projects and mandates, such as the new Northeast Metro Tech, are mounting, while revenue sources are not rising commensurately. The other referenced the state educational funding formula and the repeated assurances city and state offi cials say that it is not equitable to Malden’s status as it comes to the residents’ income levels and needs overall. Both of McDonald’s resolutions passed unanimously. The fi rst reads: “Resolve: That it is the sense of the Malden City Council that the city must develop a plan to increase local revenue in the next 3-5 years to match projected future expenses. In addition to the regular annual infl ation of city salaries and costs, currently projected expenses for the city include: capital investments for schools and city facilities; road and sidewalk construction and maintenance; priority projects such as the Malden River Works project and the Cultural Arts Center; pension and pension benefi ts costs for Councillor-at-Large – size 6 inches wide city staff and retirees; and Malden’s required contribution to the Northeast Metro Tech High School construction project. “Additionally, increased required local contributions to education remain a signifi cant liability under Massachusetts Chapter 70. Malden should evaluate all possible local income sources to develop clear targets, as well as potential budget-saving measures, to develop clear targets and a plan to meet these needs. This plan should include a strategic approach for using zoning and other tools to promote a sustainable rate of mixed-use development for growth in the commercial and residential tax base. It should also include investigation into new income sources at the local, state, and federal levels. “The FY 2024 city budget is balanced with the use of one-time federal stimulus funds from the American Rescue Plan (ARPA) and cash reserves. To be fi scally responsible stewards of our city, we must act now to develop a sustainable approach which avoids painful cuts to city staff and services in the future. Sponsors: Carey McDonald, Karen Colon Hayes, Paul Condon, Peg Crowe, Amanda Linehan, Barbara Murphy, Ryan O’Malley, Jadeane Sica, Chris Simonelli, Craig Spadafora, Stephen Winslow.” The second resolution, also passed unanimously in its fi nal version, reads: “Resolve: That it is the sense of the Malden City Council that it is vital for our city’s future to have a fair requirement for local education funding, one that refl ects the city’s true ability to pay as tied to our actual revenue sources. The Massachusetts Student Opportunity Act (SOA), now in its fourth year of implementation, is providing critical resources for the Malden Public Schools to support our students and families.

Call Dennis at (857) 249-7882 for details. The Malden City Council unanimously passed a pair of key papers designed to address the city’s financial future, both authored by Finance Committee Chair and Councillor-at-Large Carey McDonald.

(Courtesy/City of Malden) “We recognize and appreciate the ongoing eff orts of Malden’s state delegation in supporting the passage of the SOA and its continued funding for implementation, from which Malden is already seeing substantial benefi ts. With $9 million in new Chapter 70 state funds for next year, we are grateful to be able to hire new teachers and support staff for our students, who are 74% Black, Indigenous and People of Color, 63% low income, 23% English Language Learners, and 18% students with disabilities. “However, as the full SOA foundation funding formula is phased in, it is also dramatically raising Malden’s expected contribution to the schools beyond our ability to pay. Next year requires Malden to contribute $3.1 million more in local funding for schools, capturing 85% of the total expected increase in local tax revenue and receipts for the whole city. As a Gateway City, Malden is a high-need, diverse, mixed income city with a large immigrant community. Yet Malden currently has one of the lowest per-capita expenditures of Massachusetts cities on all other non-school services, and our local property taxes are already at the limit allowed by state law. “As the SOA continues to phase in over the next few years, increases in much-needed education state aid are likely to come with a steep price of requiring Malden to reduce other city services for our residents, such as public health, infrastructure, libraries, parks, and emergency responders. In its 2020 local contribution study, the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) noted that the required local contribution calculation is ‘problematic’ and has been almost unchanged since 2007. We thank our state delegation for their support, and call on our state leaders in the legislature, Governor’s offi ce and DESE to fi x the required local contribution so that it refl ects the ability to pay equitably and accurately for schools and other essential city services, for Malden and all other high-need communities. Sponsors: Carey McDonald, Karen Colon Hayes, Paul Condon, Peg Crowe, Amanda Linehan, Barbara Murphy, Ryan O’Malley, Jadeane Sica, Chris Simonelli, Craig Spadafora, Stephen Winslow.”

But everyone was there for the same reason: to remember and celebrate the life of one of Malden’s true “Unsung Heroes.” Well, following a recent gathering in April where a memorial stone was placed and a hearty meal was shared by way of a good, old-fashioned cookout, the guy dubbed “Malden’s Man for All Seasons,” the late Tom Heerter Sr., is “unsung” no more. Thanks to eff orts of a small but earnest group of former Malden Babe Ruth players and coaches and the backing of the Pine Banks Park Board of Trustees and Chairman C. Henry “Hank” Kezer, a hope became an idea, and the idea became a reality. Longtime Pine Banks Park staff member and present Superintendent Kevin Benner coached alongside and against Tom Heerter in multiple sports, primarily Babe Ruth baseball, with Heerter the boss of the Orioles in the West Division and Benner an assistant to the venerable Bob Rotondi in the East with the Knights. Plans were made to honor Tom Heerter Sr. After a few conversations with Phil Higgins, a former Oriole who revered his years with Heerter – one of many sharing the same sentiment – Benner started thinking of a way to Former Oriole Chris Pagliccia, Tom Heerter’s brothers and wife Kay (center) and Phil Higgins at the ceremony Chris Pagliccia, Deano Summers, Kevin Benner and Ralph Sully honor Tom. Benner even asked ~ Your Neighborhood Agency ~ yours truly what I thought and I was honored that he endorsed my suggestion to consider placing a memorial stone between the two beautiful baseball parks located in the youth sports complex Benner oversees. After receiving a magnanimous approval from the Pine Banks Board, Benner went into overdrive with a plan and enlisted the aid of fi rst-year Forest Dale Cemetery Superintendent and Malden Tree Warden Chris Rosa to design an appropriate memorial. The fi nal result is a fantastic memorial for Tom at Pine Banks that includes the stone, along with memorial trees planted alongside it in memory of Tom’s late children, Thomas Jr. and Christine. Benner said Tom’s wife, Kay 335 Central Street, Saugus, MA 01906 (781) 233-7300 View the interior of this home right on your smartphone.

Speakers aplenty recalled Tom on a misty April day On the misty April day when Tom was honored, speakers aplenty recalled Tom’s unique persona with wit and vigor, replete with lots of anecdotes that brought a lot of smiles, laughter and applause, along with some tears, of course. The man was loved by many, including all of those in attendance, now scattered among three generations – going on four. Mayor Gary Christenson marveled at the many, many lives touched and enhanced by their interactions with Tom Heerter. Longtime former Malden Pop Warner Football Coach Alan Biscan was head coach of the team he led to the 2000 New England Championship and on to the National Playoff s in Florida, with Tom Heerter alongside him on the coaching staff . Biscan said there was no other coach he’d rather have had with him at the time. Bob Rotondi has coached in Malden Babe Ruth Baseball

Bob Rotondi, who has coached for over 60 years in Malden Babe Ruth, recalls Tom Heerter Sr. memories to the crowd. for over 60 years now, nearly 30 of them with Tom Heerter. He wrote the inscription on the stone, which reads: “Thomas E. Heerter, 9-13-1943 to 6-29-2015, Malden’s Man For All Seasons, Baseball, Basketball, Football, Tom coached the youth of the city of Malden for over 35 seasons. He never marked his victories by his championships. Tom measured his success by seeing the accomplishments achieved by his athletes.” Rotondi spoke briefly and presented a special plaque to the Heerter Family, and it was received by Tom’s wife, Kay. Former Malden City Councillor Marty Gately, a longtime family friend of the Heerter family, also extolled his late friend’s virtues. Finally, Pine Banks Supt. Benner spoke and said he was grateful and pleasantly surprised at the late turnout at the gathering. Former Orioles players Phil Higgins and Chris Pagliccia pulled off the tarp and unveiled the stone as part of the ceremony, then everyone was allowed to take photos of the new memorial. An informal cookout was held right on the Pine Banks grounds afterward, where friends and family could reminisce and mingle. “It was a great day and really nice way to honor Tom and contributions he made through his 35 years of coaching and mentoring all those Malden players and others. “We miss him every day, and now we never have to say goodbye since he lives on with this very fitting memorial,” Benner added.

Page 16 THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, July 7, 2023 ~ Op-Ed ~ Why is there no statue of Erle Stanley Gardner? By Christian Chapras I n my 10+ years in Boston, I have noticed that Boston has a peculiar relationship with its native-born artists. Around 150 years elapsed before there was a monument to Edgar Allen Poe’s birthplace. On Harvard Bridge, there was a plaque commemorating the spot William Faulkner’s immortal character Quentin Compson committed suicide, drowning himself in the Charles, because he believed he committed incest with his sister. For the record, he didn’t. When the bridge was restored several years ago, I heard a rumor that the plaque was removed and would not be replaced. One of the most glaring examples of this is a little-known author (at least from inquiring random people, librarians and booksellers) whom I demand we celebrate. His name is Erle Stanley Gardner. Some of you may recognize his most famous creation, the lawyer/detective Perry Mason. Gardner passed the Bar at age 21, only attending Valparaiso University School of Law for one month. He spent the rest of his life practicing law and writing novels. At his peak, he wrote six novels at once, dictating them to secretaries. During this time, he sold 20,000 copies of his work per day. When Hollywood came calling, he acted as creative consultant on the landmark “Perry Mason” TV series, the first of its kind in the English-speaking world. He insisted underrepresented minorities appear in guest roles. In the early Mason novels Della Street (Mason’s secretary, and love interest) seems to be one of the earliest, if not the earliest, action heroines. As a trial lawyer, he often defended impoverished people, in particular Chinese and Mexican immigrants. Those experiences led him to found “The Court of Last Resort,” which reopened cases where suspicion of wrongful convictions had occurred. He got people off death row. Among the cases he drew attention to was Sam Sheppard. Defended by F. Lee Bailey, his case inspired the TV series “The Fugitive” and the subsequent Oscar winning film. Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor has cited Perry Mason as influential in her decision to join the legal profession. Gardner’s works to date have sold over 300 million copies, third only to R.L. Stine, and J.K. Rowling, as the highest selling individual author in the English language. You may have noticed that the other two are children’s authors. Which means, Gardner is the highest selling individual author of adult targeted fiction in the English language. Where was he born? Malden, Massachusetts. He may have written, and lived in, California for most of his life, but he was born here. There are no statues of Gardner. No Gardner Day, which is July 17th. There are no festivals. No Perry Mason, Della Street or Paul Drake look-alike contests. The only librarians in either The Minuteman, or BPL, library networks who know of him are in Malden. The librarians are doing their best to draw attention to Gardner’s life and works. This is an outrage! As far as I’m concerned, Gardner should be Massachusetts’ state author; not only for his prolific output, but his strength of character, moral conscience, and influence on our daily lives; all the way up to The Supreme Court. And every legal procedural drama on TV. No Perry Mason, no Law & Order. I’m sure most of you don’t want to imagine a world like that. Acknowledging and understanding the past gives an understanding of the present. Do you understand the world you live in? You live in a world shaped by Erle Stanley Gardner. You live in a world shaped by Perry Mason. His influence is global. We deserve to know him, read his entertaining work, and celebrate his legacy.

HORMONAL BIRTH CONTROL (S 3) Senate 39-0, approved an amendment that would allow pharmacists to evaluate patients and, without a prescription from a doctor, prescribe and dispense hormonal contraceptive patches and self-administered oral hormonal contraceptives. The pharmacists would be required to complete a training program on hormonal contraception. “Hormonal birth control is one of the safest and most effective ways to prevent unplanned pregnancy and support family planning, but many women find this critical medication difficult to obtain here in Massachusetts,” said sponsor Sen. Mike Moore (D-Millbury). “This amendment … will allow local pharmacists to evaluate patients and prescribe hormonal contraceptives when appropriate – something 27 states and D.C. already allow in some form. This is a great step toward lowering barriers that prevent women from getting the birth control they need and addressing disparities in contraceptive access for those in historically underserved areas.” (A “Yes” vote is for the amendment.) Sen. Jason Lewis Yes $500,000 FOR COMMUNITY ELECTION| FROM PAGE 1 the Malden School Committee election at this point. Seven of the eight ward-based School Committee members face no opposition as the filing deadline looms. Only one candidate has taken out papers for the open Ward 5 seat being vacated by longtime School Committeeman Adam Weldai, who is not seeking reelection. For School Committee, the other seven members, all of whom are seeking reelection, are facing no challengers at this time: Michael Drummey SAFETY GRANTS TO CITIES AND TOWNS (S 3) Senate 39-0, approved an amendment increasing by $500,000 (from $12.3 million to $12.8 million) the funding for the Sen. Charles Shannon Community Safety Initiative grant program which funds partnerships between local law enforcement and community-based organizations to prevent gang and youth violence in cities and towns. “I am proud to secure this Shannon Community Safety Initiative grant to combat gang violence, youth violence and substance through multi-disciplinary efforts,” said sponsor Sen. Sal DiDomenico (D-Everett). “By offering social intervention programs for at-risk youth, as well as education, training and employment programs for gang-involved and high-risk young adults, [these grants] play a vital role in keeping our communities safe.” (A “Yes” vote is for the $500,000.) Sen. Jason Lewis Yes $1 MILLION FOR MASSACHUSETTS EMERGENCY FOOD ASSISTANCE PROGRAM (S 3) Senate 39-0, approved an amendment increasing by $1 million (from $35 million to $36 million) the funding for the Massachusetts Emergency Food Assistance Program which provides food for the Bay State’s four regional food banks which supply most local food banks in the state. “I am happy to share that I secured an additional $1 million through the amendment process for a total of $36 million allocated for the Massachusetts Emergency Food Assistance Program in the Senate budget,” said sponsor Sen. Sal DiDomenico (D-Everett.) “[This] is a critical program, as food prices are rising, for ensuring our most vulnerable residents can access food and supporting food suppliers across the state.” (A “Yes” vote is for the $1 million.) Sen. Jason Lewis Yes ALSO UP ON BEACON HILL BAN SEX OFFENDERS FROM STATE-SUBSIDIZED PUBLIC HOUSING (H 1342) – The Housing Committee held a hearing on legislation that would prohibit Level 2 and Level 3 sex offenders from being placed in public housing in Massachusetts. The bill is similar to a 1998 federal law that bans some sex offenders from federally subsidized housing. “[The bill] is common-sense legislation that would extend the same protections that are currently in place for residents of federally-subsidized public housing to tenants living in state-subsidized public housing,” said sponsor Rep. Brad Jones (R-North Reading). BULLYING IN PUBLIC HOUSING (Ward 1), Robert McCarthy Jr. (Ward 2), Vice Chair Jennifer Spadafora (Ward 3), Dawn Macklin (Ward 4), Joseph Gray (Ward 6), Keith Bernard (Ward 7) and Sharon Rose Zeiberg (Ward 8). In the City Council races, if the proper number of signatures are filed, there will be contested races for Ward 2, where incumbent Councillor Paul Condon is being challenged by Sheila Rachels, and Ward 6, where first-term incumbent Stephen Winslow will face a challenge by Jerry Leone. There are three Council(S 887) – Another measure before the Housing Committee is designed to protect tenants from being bullied in public subsidized housing. Provisions include creating resource lists for residents and developing regulations requiring managers and owners of residences to report bullying to the appropriate authorities with the intent of preventing this type of abusive behavior and potential retaliation. In addition, all owners of these properties would be required to create a bullying prevention plan and to train staff and residents in bullying prevention. “Massachusetts residents, namely low-income, elderly and disabled individuals, are among some of our most vulnerable,” said sponsor Sen. Joan Lovely (D-Salem). “They deserve to feel safe and secure at home. I am proud to file [the bill] to protect individuals and families from bullying in public housing to safeguard their peace of mind and quality of life.” EDUCATOR DIVERSITY (H 549) – The Education Committee held a hearing on a proposal that would create a 5-year pilot program to develop a process for granting educator certification as an alternative to the current testing requirements to be a teacher is public schools.The alternative certification method would be limited to schools and districts that demonstrate a demographic dispiriting between educators and students, a shortage of teachers who serve English language learners or a similar critical need. The alternative certification must be limited to schools and districts that demonstrate a demographic dispiriting between educators and students, a shortage of teachers who serve English language learners or a similar critical need. Other provisions would require district and charter school to establish a diversity plan and have either a DEI officer or team – to advise the school committee or board of trustees on matters related to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) in the district. Supporters say research consistently shows that students learn better when their educators reflect the diversity of the communities in which they live.They note it is crucial that students from diverse backgrounds are taught by educators who reflect their experiences and are reflective of the communities in which they grow up. “While it’s true that Massachusetts remains a leader in educational outcomes, we know that we need a much more diverse educator workforce to match the diversity of our students,” said sponsor Rep. Alice Peisch (D-Wellesley). “The Massachusetts Legislature has shown its clear commitment to educator diversity, lor-at-Large seats elected citywide, and all three incumbents – Karen Colón Hayes, Carey McDonald and Craig Spadafora – are seeking reelection, with a fourth candidate, Dante DiSerio, also having taken out nomination papers. For the open School Committee seat in Ward 5, Malden political newcomer Elizabeth J. Hortie has obtained nomination papers, the only potential candidate so far for that position. For the open Ward 5 City Council seat, Ari Taylor and Julie E. Turner have each taken out as we saw with new budget allocations in fiscal year 2023 and progress on the Educator Diversity Act. I look forward to continuing to work with my colleagues to get the bill passed.” MENTAL HEALTH GRANTS TO SCHOOLS (H 3573) – Another bill before the Education Committee would establish a school mental health professional grant program to increase the number of mental health professionals employed by school districts to provide mental health support to students. “I firmly believe that the establishment of a school mental health professional grant program is of utmost importance for the betterment of our educational system and the overall welfare of our students,” said sponsor Rep. Marcus Vaughn (R-Wrentham).“By providing access to mental health support for students, we can proactively address their emotional and psychological needs, fostering a conducive learning environment and ensuring their long-term success.” QUOTABLE QUOTES "To see a person who's quite, in my perspective, quite visibly dead all of a sudden, in a few moments, sit upright and then with assistance stand up, and then they talk, it's truly incredible. Having it [Naloxone] as readily available as possible is something that we should absolutely guarantee." ---Sen. John Keenan (D-Quincy) at a gathering of legislators, legislative staffers and advocates to learn about how to administer Naloxone, a life-saving medication that reverses overdoses. “Our audits serve as a tool for state agencies to help ensure greater transparency, accountability and equity. It is unacceptable that due to a lack of appropriate oversight by MassHealth, nearly $85 million in overpayments went to managed care organizations for out-of-state residents who were concurrently enrolled in another state’s healthcare program. Taxpayers deserve better and I strongly urge MassHealth to adopt this audit’s recommendations.” --- State Auditor Diana DiZoglio after releasing an audit that showed that MassHealth did not take sufficient steps to ensure that Medicaid recipients resided in Massachusetts – resulting in MassHealth overpaying $85 million to managed care organizations for individuals residing out of state. “Every barrier to voting keeps us from realizing what our democracy can become. We celebrate the steps the Legislature took a year ago to remove some of the barriers. Here’s to nomination papers, and both have already submitted enough certified voter signatures to appear on the ballot. Turner is a political newcomer and Taylor was the runner-up to Councillor Murphy in the 2021 municipal election. Following are some other key dates regarding the 2023 municipal election: Saturday, September 9: Deadline to register to vote in the September 19 Preliminary Election. Tuesday, September 19: Municipal Preliminary Election (if needed). more progress this session.” --- Janet Domenitz, director of MASSPIRG on the one-year anniversary of the signing of the VOTES Act, voting rights legislation that advocates say made Massachusetts elections more accessible and equitable. “We are proud to appoint Mark William as the new executive director and strongly support his efforts in this new role. He has extensive leadership experience and knowledge about the standards, goals and operations of the Lottery, ensuring the continued integrity of the industry while maximizing local aid for our cities and towns. --- State Treasurer Deb Goldberg upon appointing the new executive director of the Lottery. 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 June 26-30, the House met for a total of one hour and four minutes while the Senate met for a total of 49 minutes. Mon.

LIFE ESTATES AND STEP UP IN COST BASIS ~ Legal Notice ~ O ne common dilemma facing the remaindermen listed on a deed is how tocalculate the cost basis of the real estate in question upon the death of the life tenant or life tenants. This is an important issue as the remaindermen need to know their cost basis in the event they subsequently sell the real estate or rent it out thereby requiring depreciation calculations. If, for example, a father deeded his home to his two children and reserved a life estate on the deed itself (essentially the right to use, occupy and possess the home for the rest of his life), upon the father’s death, under Internal Revenue Code (IRC) Section 2036(a)(1), the fair market value (FMV) of the home at the time of the father’s death would be the starting cost basis in the hands of the children going forward. If the FMV of the home was $600,000, the law treats it as though the children paid $600,000 for the home. This of course helps tremendously to avoid or greatly eliminate any capital gains tax upon a subsequent sale of the home. What if the father and mother both deeded the home to the children with reserved life estates? In this situation, since the father deeded his 50% interest in the home to the children with a reserved life estate, upon the father’s death, only 50% of the property is stepped-up to FMV upon his death. Since the mother deeded her 50% interest in the home to the children with a reserved life estate, upon the mother’s death, only 50% of the property is stepped-up to FMV upon her death. As a result, the home would have to be valued at both the father and mother’s death in order to obtain the new cost basis in the hands of the children upon the second to die. You would take 50% of the FMV of the home upon the father’s death and add that figure to 50% of the FMV of the home upon the mother’s death. Furthermore, 50% of the FMV of the home would be includible in the taxable estate of each spouse upon his or her death. What if the father and mother reserved a life estate, as husband and wife, tenants by the entirety? Would that make a difference in the calculation? The answer is no. Upon the father’s death, he in essence gifts his life estate to his wife. This is referred to as a life estate pur autre vie. Upon the subsequent death of his wife, there will not be a step-up in cost basis of the husband’s 50% life estate given to her as she simply did not retain a life estate in 100% of the home. She only retained a life estate in the 50% that she originally gifted to the children. She did not retain a life estate in the husband’s 50% interest. Only he did. This is pursuant to IRC Section 2036(a)(1) dealing with retained interests. Joseph D.

Rene speaks on the passing of a legend: “Happy heavenly Father’s Day, Dad! If you knew my dad, you know he greeted everyone he loved with a big hug and a kiss. Everyone was ‘his friend’ from the girls at Honey Dew (who knew to make a fresh pot when he walked in but didn’t mind because of how he treated them), to the butcher at the meat deli (who knew to slice it ‘very thin’) and he actually had these peoples phone numbers! That’s how easy he was to love. The people next door, or his regulars who religiously came to hear him sing, and as most of you know, boy could he sing! They all came out for Vinnie! He loved his family more than anything. His children and grandchildren were his pride and joy. Leone. He is also survived by his nieces and nephews as well as great nieces and nephews.

He grew up and raised his family in Malden before moving into the longtime family home in He especially loved his ‘baby’ Mia Rigano and the bond they shared was something special. His second love was music, and oh yeah, food – lol! He actually showed his love for you with food always bringing home your favorite or something you said you liked. He could talk to you for hours with such passion about music. He could also talk to you all day about food. He was a great storyteller and when he talked, you listened to every word. He told it like it was and didn’t sugar coat anything, but he had the biggest heart and would do anything for the ones he loved. He’d give you the shirt off his back and that’s what he instilled in my brothers and me. He left a huge void in all our lives when he passed but I know I can speak for all of us when I say, he left us with a ton of memories and his knowledge and wisdom about life lessons. We love and miss you Dad, Papa, Vincenzo, Vinny Boombatz aka Vincent Straccia Sr.” Postscript: Count me in as one who worshipped at the feet of one Vinny Straccia! I just adored this man! Talented with charisma to spare and one cool cat! Vinny grew up in Boston’s famous Italian enclave, the North End. His love of singing and entertainment came from listening to vinyl his pops would bring home. Urban legend has it that Melrose. With honor, Ed served his country as a member of the U.S. Air Force. He was a proud, 30-year member of Ironworkers Local 7. He was a model character known for his selfl essness and willingness to help others. Whether it was a small project or a grand undertaking, Ed was always there, supporting those around him. Family members and friends benefi ted from his guidance and support as he assisted them in projects, bringing his “Jack-of-all-trades” and “fi xer of everything” abilities to every situation / “crisis.” Ed was a loving husband and devoted father whose love for family was unwavering. He will be remembered for his gentle nature, twinkling blue eyes, rosy cheeks, and warm smile. Ed leaves behind a rich tapestry of memories and a lasting impact on all those fortunate enough to have known him. Edward is survived by his devoted wife of 59 years, Brenda (Campbell) Mahan.

Vinny “borrowed” the Delphonics name and started his own street corner group. Their fi rst paying gig was at the Rose Coff ee House in the North End, where they each walked out of the cafe $5 richer. On his return home from Nam in 1969, he joined the soul group “The Betterway” with Bobby Crowley (miss ya, Bobby), Tommy Fleming, Jimmy Martini and Richie Willis (Hi Richie). In 1975, Vinny, Bobby and Guy Chiapponi formed “Breakaway,” which quickly became one of New England’s premier disco show bands. In 1980, Vinny’s baritone became one of the original voices of North Shore Acappella along with Bobby, Guy, Maureen Vadala and Richie. The next 35 years were magical (I was there for much of it, and I remember most of it, I think). The happiness Vinnie and his gang of fi ve brought into all our lives, priceless!

I purchased 4 ‘entries’ with glasses and tutus and they charged my debit card. They then cancelled the event [and] refuse to respond to emails. They are still advertising on Facebook like the event is happening.” One consumer who purchased tickets to a fake beer crawl reported: “Reviews across multiple platforms make it clear that these events are at best extremely misleading or at worst canceled. No refunds are given, even when their inconsistent and mostly-unreachable customer service email address responds to confi rm a refund will be provided.” How to spot a fake festival • Research before you buy. Search online for the festival’s name and and friends. His memory will forever live on in our hearts, minds and at the “Friday afternoon board meetings.” As we mourn his passing, let us celebrate the legacy of Edward C. Mahan, a remarkable individual whose kindness and wisdom will continue to inspire us. He was a good-hearted, generous man who cared for others over himself. Ed's departure has left an irreplaceable void in the lives of those who held him dear. May his soul fi nd eternal peace. Visiting hours will be held at ensure the name advertised matches the website. Scammers often use names that sound similar to those of real festivals. • Check for (working) contact information. Be sure the festival website has a real phone number and email address. • Watch out for prices that sound too good to be true. There is no way a festival can off er tickets at extremely low prices without losing money. If the prices are much lower than elsewhere, it’s likely a scam. What can you do? • Pay with a credit card. You can dispute the charges if the business doesn’t come through. Be wary of online sellers that don’t accept credit cards. • Look for secure sites.
