The Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection has issued a stop work order on renovations at the park while the agency reviews an appeal concerning the bordering wetlands at the site. Last month, Christenson announced “UniteMalden 2020,” an initiative with specifi c steps developed to immediately begin addressing systemic racism. UniteMalden calls for declaring racism a public health crisis, establishing a police department community review board, hiring a director of equity, inclusion and community engagement, establishing diversity in hiring practices and recognizing Juneteenth as an offi cial city holiday. “The term UniteMalden is intended to convey our goal to begin to eliminate barriers and ob(Pol.

H.4818, An Act to reduce racial inequities in maternal health, which the House unanimously passed on June 30, seeks to address racial disparities in maternal health by creating a special commission to study trends and make recommendations that reduce or remove barriers to access for women of color which are causing them to die of pregnancy-related causes at more than double the death rate of white women. The commission will research this systemic societal problem to raise awareness and improve practices that will remedy deeply ingrained inequities. On July 2, the House and Senate enacted and laid before the governor H.4820, An Act relative to voting options in response to COVID-19, to promote electoral engagement during the COVID-19 Pandemic. This bill Steven Ultrino State Representative establishes early voting by mail, so that Massachusetts residents can vote without having to go to the polls on Election Day. This bill also enacts health and safety measures for polling locations to ensure they are in accordance with the Department of Public Health’s recommendations. On June 30, the House of Representatives unanimously passed H.4803, An Act financing improvements to municipal roads and bridges, which allocates $200 million to statewide improvements to municipal roads and bridges. This bill contains $200 million of Chapter 90 funds as well as recommendations for the future of the Fiscal and Management Control Board, which governs and oversees the issues involving the MBTA. On July 2, H.4803 was enacted and sent to the Governor to be signed into law. “I was proud to join my colleagues in the House to pass these three critical pieces of legislation which will aid municipalities in funding local infrastructure projects, increase civic engagement and voter turnout among Massachusetts residents, and address deep-seated racial inequities in maternal health,” said Representative UlKate Lipper-Garabedian State Representative trino. “These measures are long overdue and I am glad that, in light of recent events, the legislature is making electoral engagement and racial inequality a priority for the Commonwealth.” “These bills that were recently passed in cooperation with my House colleagues address issues that are very important to the citizens of Malden: racial inequities in maternal health, vote accessibility and infrastructure,” said Representative Donato. “We will continue to address the needs of our constituents.” “It was a productive week for the House of Representatives!” said Representative Lipper-Garabedian. “I am glad to join my colleagues in authorizing funding to Malden for ongoing municipal infrastructure work. Our elections bill will ensure that voters have expanded options for safely participating in the fall elections. And as a mother of two young boys, I know how critical perinatal and postpartum supports are for women and their families. I am proud to support the maternal health bill which takes a first, important step in tackling the unconscionable racial inequities in maternal health in the Commonwealth.” http://www.sabatino-ins.com SABATINO 564 Broadway Everett, MA 02149 617-387-7466 Hours of Operation are: Mondays - Fridays 9am to 5pm Saturdays by appointment only Malden Library announces Summer Reading program S ummer Reading is about to begin at the Malden Public Library.

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, July 10, 2020 Page 3 Malden to receive $910,155 in Chapter 90 road repair funds B OSTON – Malden’s State House delegation supported a statewide bond authorization that will provide the city with $910,155 to help fund local transportation infrastructure upgrades in Fiscal Year 2021. House Bill 4803, An Act fi nancing improvements to municipal roads and bridges, authorizes $200 million in spending under the state’s Chapter 90 program. The bill was enacted by the House of Representatives on June 30 and by the Senate on July 2. On July 2, Governor Charlie Baker signed the bill into law. “Leaders at the state and local level continue to work together to ensure that our public infrastructure and transportation network are safe, reliable and useful,” said Senator Jason Lewis. “Even in the face of a global pandemic and an economic recession, I believe that investment in our infrastructure must remain a top priority to ensure the safety and prosperity of our communities and our region.” “I am confi dent that the City of Malden will utilize the funding from this bond for much-needed infrastructure and transportation needs,” said Representative Paul Donato. “The delegation continues to fi ght for Malden residents as we deal with very demanding times.” “Even as cities and towns respond to the unprecedented challenges of COVID-19, ongoing infrastructure work in our communities must continue,” said Representative Kate Lipper-Garabedian. “I am glad to join my colleagues in the House and Senate to authorize funding to Malden for ongoing municipal capital improvement projects.” “I was glad to join my colleagues in the legislature to pass this necessary bill to fund repairs to municipal and regional roads and bridges across the Commonwealth through the Chapter 90 program,” said Representative Steven Ultrino. “It is necessary to continue to invest in transportation and capital improvement projects to ensure that our local and statewide infrastructure is safe and accessible.” Established by the Legislature in 1973, the Chapter 90 program provides funding to municipalities on an annual basis to assist with critical transportation infrastructure projects, including road and bridge repairs. The funding is allocated using a formula that is based on the weighted average of a community’s population, employment and total road miles. Chapter 90 funding can be used for a variety of purposes, including road resurfacing, sidewalks, street lighting, traffi c control measures and roadside drainage. Municipalities can also use the money for the purchase, replacement and long-term lease of road building machinery, equipment and tools. COVID-19 jail cases remain at zero for fifth straight week M iddlesex County Sheriff Peter Koutoujian recently announced that for the fi fth straight week, the number of incarcerated individuals testing positive for COVID-19 at the Middlesex Jail & House of Correction stands at zero. “Over the past four months, our staff has done an incredible job confronting this unprecedented public health challenge,” said Koutoujian. “While we have reached an important milestone in our efforts to address COVID-19, we remain vigilant. The health and safety of our incarcerated population, our staff , and our wider community remain our chief priority.” During the last fi ve weeks, 14 COVID-19 tests were administered, all of which came back negative. Of those 14 tests, 10 were conducted as precautionary measures, including seven of which were for individuals either reentering the community or being transferred to other jurisdictions. Four individuals entering the facility from the community were immediately isolated and tested based on medical protocols.

The House has responded by continuing to advance vital health, economic and family stimulus measures through the legislative process. On June 24, the House unanimously passed a supplemental budget to address pressing economic shortfalls that continue during the ongoing pandemic. The Senate amended the bill and it awaits final approval by Governor Charlie Baker. “These unsettled times demand swift relief measures on the part of state government and I am pleased my colleagues and I were able to expeditiously advance this vital funding appropriation forward,” said Donato. “These resources will serve to scaffold and support beleatory,” said State Representative Steven Ultrino. He lauded Donato’s “knowledge of the rules and his ability to work with all members during these trying times.” State Representative Sean Paul Donato State Representative guered individuals, families, and small businesses as they continue to weather this ongoing public health crisis.” Donato, who represents Medford and Malden in the 35th House Middlesex District, has regularly chaired most formal and informal sessions, but with an unprecedented health crisis, we’re in “uncharted terriLawrence A.

Leader Donato is up there on the rostrum time and time again, making sure that we pass legislation that’s going to help get the Commonwealth and her people through this pandemic together.” Donato highlighted funds specifically earmarked for Medford and Malden that he worked to include in the recent legislation passed by the House: • Allocates $450,000 in funds for Medford’s Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and remote learning infrastructure • Directs $75,000 for additional school nursing staff for Malden • Designates $25,000 for language translation services for Malden • Provides $25,000 for materials in Malden Public Schools affected by the COVID-19 Pandemic “Your government will continue to meet the challenge of COVID-19 head on; and I will always work collaboratively, with all stakeholders, to serve the people of Medford and Malden to the very best of my ability. Together, we will get through this, I have no doubt of that,” said Donato.

This moment in our modern history is a turning point for people of color, please join us in hearing them when they say, they want to be included in community decisions for their neighborhood and school communities.” Members of the Friends and the Salemwood Community also called on Malden to embrace environmental justice, or the fair treatment and meaningful involvement of all people regardless of race, color, national origin or income, with respect to the development, implementation and enforcement of environmental laws, regulations and policies.

Members of the Friends and the Salemwood Community have submitted studies and information about the health risks and hazards of artificial turf to city officials and the Community Preservation Committee, which approved the park renovations. They have also said planning meetings for the park were held without adequate notification to stakeholders. “This project does not seem to represent UniteMalden or environmental justice for people of color in our community,” wrote members of the Friends and the Salemwood Community. “UniteMalden needs to begin first by uniting the voices of diversity speaking out against a project that is going to affect the quality of life of school children and a neighborhood,” they added.

You’re one of us!” Fifty years ago this summer, Malden continued to proudly proclaim that Norman Greenbaum was one of us! A Malden boy! His single “Spirit in the Sky” sold two million copies from 1969 to 1970, reaching number three on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart, where it remained for 15 weeks! I vivpel music, so I sat down and wrote my own gospel song. It came easy. I wrote the words in 15 minutes.” Norman and his gal pal Bonita graced us with their presence last year. It is a memory none of us will ever forget – seared into our Malden memory banks for the rest of our time on earth. Here’s to you Norman. To that song. To that summer of 1970. To that 50-year-old memory of falling in love with your song on that tiny transistor radio. “It is said in Malden: today, tomorrow and yesterday...” We all know that death leaves a very big hole in our lives. Peter (Caso) – the grace and dignity you have displayed after the passing of your father is inspiring. Stay strong, my friend. Preacher Jack traveled Hank Sr.’s “lost highway” for most of his long career. He knew from an early age that “wealth would never save his soul.” And for a period of time in the 1970s before he quit booze there were “too many parties and too many pals.” Well, the “Angel of Death” finally caught up with Jack’s earthly form, but have no doubt that his soul immediately joined the “Hillbilly Heaven” choir – duets with Liberace, Ray Price and Sister Clara Ward into the wee small hours!

Page 6 THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, July 10, 2020 Malden author releases Those Who Hold Up the Earth An ever timely book for this period in the struggle for racial justice and the recognition of the once-forgotten essential workers P eter F. Crowley of Malden recently announced the publication of his latest book, Those Who Hold Up the Earth. A running theme throughout the poems is the marginalized, the forgotten throughout the world and in the U.S. who are walked over and treated as less than human. This extends from the poor, a Bangladeshi rickshaw driver, to immigrants who ‘White Terrorist[s]’ (a piece within the book) sometimes target. It is particularly relevant in these trying times of heroic healthcare and essential workers and, more recently, the ongoing fight for black justice. The style ranges from the surreal to the symbolic and some quietly gorgeous homage–to the ‘little people’ and even the little things,” said Genna Rivieccio, editor-in-chief of The Opiate. “This collection demonstrates Peter F. Crowley Malden Author more straight forward pieces. It illuminates the small things in life, including seasonal changes, a sick cat and Papa Gino’s workers, while bringing in larger themes of racism, xenophobia, aging and death. “An astonishing love note–a Crowley’s skill for noticing the little details of life -- and making them matter to readers as much as the big stuff: racism, unemployment, the terrifying, mysterious aging process and death ‘a return to an earth that vibrates at the seams with life,’” said Robin Stratton, author of Some Have Gone and Some Remain. Crowley is a prolific Malden author. He works as a Senior Semantic Enrichment Specialist for a library science company. His writings can be found in Boston Literary Magazine, Mint Press News, Wilderness House Literary Review, Opiate Magazine, Galway Review, Truthout, Visitant, Adelaide Magazine, Ethnic Studies Review and numerous other publications.

I hope he saw the light, he always imagined what it would be like to arrive at the pearly gates. He would be mad preaching, filled with the spirit, and testifying by pounding the piano like no other. “I saw the light, I saw the light “No more darkness, no more night “Now I’m so happy no sorrow in sight “Praise the Lord I saw the light “He was not just exuberant, he was really, really good.

Preach was lucky to have a good friend in Peter Levine, who ‘managed’ Preach, as best a person could, and took care of him when it was time to retire. Boston was lucky to have such a one of a kind talent.” Loyal reader and longtime Maldonian Joanne Torosian caught me by surprise with this email. I totally missed it. The Sunday Globe June 21 listed the obituary of Albert Bailey Sparks (93 years of age). He was one of the sons of the original owners of Sparks Department Store in Malden Square. He ran the store with his brother after the parents retired – now the Boda Borg. “If you couldn’t find anything at Kresges, Grant’s or Woolworth’s, you might find it at Sparks. I know without a doubt Sparks holds memories for a lot of Maldonians. I remember going there with my grandmother. She was there for the ribbon cutting and went to that store practically every day. Arrangements are through Goldman Funeral Home.” Chris Cirino’s dad was at Woodstock. No, he doesn’t have his ticket stub like most from that weekend. Not many realized the historical significance that the musical event would eventually hold. He may not even have been around when Jimi played “The Star-Spangled Banner,” but his recollection of that long-ago day is seared into his memory bank as if it were yesterday.

Much later in the day I visit old friends at M&M Liquors on Broadway. Shamefully I do not know their names, but we always greet each other with a hearty “how ya doing, pal?!” Great fellas – old-fashioned service with a smile.

His and my wonderful memories of our beloved city of Malden Fourth of July celebrations are uncannily similar. We remember the wonderful Devir Park foot races (Rocco Saraceni always beat me), Hoodsie ice creams and the smell of stale beer emanating from the Bandstand. The portable green Bandstand facing Emerald Street that was erected the day before the Fourth. The night before the Fourth of July talent show on said Bandstand. Councillor Billy Callahan welcoming all residents before and after he had a toot or two at the Irish American. Everybody had a toot or two in those days! Don’t look so shocked, Malden! Insert smiley face emoji. The parade put together by Councillor Callahan going down Charles towards the Fellsway. Right by my house! Us on the top porch waving to Torby, Teddy K, Ed Markey and our beloved Ward Councillor, Mr. Callahan. Kevin remembers being introduced to the most Honorable Senator Ted Kennedy at Devir Park by Councillor Callahan. Billy telling Senator Kennedy “this little guy wants to be Mayor of Malden someday.” We have beautiful memories of our beloved city during the best childhood a kid could ask for. That is for sure! Happy Fourth of July, Malden. We will miss you this year. MSO announces new asymptomatic COVID-19 cases Cases confirmed, suspected to be a result of community-based contacts. No positive tests reported in main facility B ILLERICA – The Middlesex Sheriff’s Office today announced seven individuals, including six Work Release and Community Work Program participants residing in a minimum security building, physically separated from the facility’s main housing structure, have tested positive for COVID-19.All six minimum security cases are currently suspected to be as a result of community-based contacts outside the Middlesex Jail & House of Correction. The seventh individual entered the facility having previously tested positive in the community. Each of the individuals remains asymptomatic and all seven have been placed in medical isolation to be monitored.These are the first positive tests involving any incarcerated individuals at the Middlesex Jail & House of Correction since mid-May. “While the incredible efforts of our staff to mitigate the impact of COVID-19 resulted in six straight weeks without a positive test, we were always cognizant the virus could return – most likely as a result of a community contact or through a new arrestee,” said Middlesex Sheriff Peter J. Koutoujian.“With a constant flow of new admittances – nearly 750 since March 1 – it was never a matter of if we’d see more cases, but when – and we have been prepared to respond immediately.” On Tuesday morning, the MSO received the initial positive result on a COVID test that had proactively been administered to an individual as part of his preparation for potential parole.The individual, who participated in the office’s Work Release program, was immediately placed in medical isolation, per protocol, and all non-essential movement in and out the building was temporarily suspended.In consultation with our infectious diseases expert 28 additional individuals living in the building were tested, with five positive results and 23 negatives. Individuals participating in Work Release, are eligible to leave the facility to take part in employment activities at community-based jobsites and are monitored by GPS while outside the facility. Those involved in the Community Work Program take part in both onsite and offsite painting, cleanup, beautification and other projects under the direct supervision of a correction officer. The MSO has notified employers associated with the Work Release program of the results. “Working with our infectious diseases specialist we will continue to maintain our high level of vigilance and preparation,” said Sheriff Koutoujian.“As we have throughout this pandemic, we remain committed to ensuring the health and safety of all those who live in, work at and visit the Middlesex Jail & House of Correction.” Summer is Here!

I am incredibly proud of them for their thoughtfulness and desire to help others.” The plasma of recovered COVID-19 individuals – also known as convalescent plasma – contains numerous proteins developed by that individual’s immune system to overcome the virus.

If I have the ability to give back by donating plasma to those who may not be as lucky to recover on their own, it’s a no brainer for me. If it could save only one person, or buy a family a few more moments or days with their loved one, I’d still do it. If you can help, you should.” “Seeing the selflessness of all my colleagues when I was out of work, I felt bad I wasn’t able to be there to help,” said Officer Shawn Ankenbauer. “I was inspired when I saw the doctors, nurses and others working weekends, nights and holidays to do their parts. It was great to see everyone coming together and working together.

Page 10 THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, July 10, 2020 An Open Letter from Friends of Roosevelt Park and the Salemwood Community June 30, 2020 D ear Mayor Christenson, MRA Director Deborah Burke, and the Board Members of the Adelaide Breed Bayrd Foundation, As the month draws to a close, we felt it was important to address the Roosevelt Park Renovation Project. The Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (MA DEP) has ordered a stop work order after the filing of an appeal concerning the bordering wetlands. While this hiatus is taking place, we wish to address the issues concerning why we continue to oppose this project. The planning was done with no input from the school community and the neighborhood. Both of these stakeholders are in opposition of this project. The children who spoke out were ignored. The parents of these children who spoke out were ignored. The neighbors who spoke out were ignored. Their voices were dismissed and excluded. This moment in our modern history is a turning point for people of color, please join us in hearing them when they say, they want to be included in community deSPORTS | FROM PAGE 1 low, moderate and high risk. Golf, pickleball and swimming are low-risk sports that can be played while social distancing or alone. Baseball, softball and volleyball are moderate-risk sports that involve some contact between players. However, the risks can be managed with face masks and modified game rules. High-risk sports that involve close contact, such as football, soccer and basketball, also present a high probability of respiratory particles spreading among players. In addition to categorizing risk levels, state guidelines also outline four levels of play that move from Level 1, no-contact workouts and drills, to competitive practices and scrimmages, to games, meets and matches and finally to Level 4, which allows tournaments. For moderate-risk baseball, players can take part in workcisions for their neighborhood and school communities. Let’s bring this community back to the table and reexamine options for Roosevelt Park. The Adelaide Breed Bayrd Foundation has been instrumental in supporting many projects in Malden and in surrounding communities which have enriched the lives of the citizens in these communities. The foundation had offered to pay for the artificial turf portion of the project. Adelaide Breed Bayrd, as stated in the information we have found about her, loved botany, trees and her Maplewood neighborhood. We respectfully ask the foundation to reconsider a natural grass alternative for this project. The Covid19 pandemic has made the residents of our City more aware and concerned with having our natural green space preserved. In times of crisis when we are limited to where we can travel, exercise, have fun and to find respite from the worries of the day, our parks need to serve as more than an athletic facility. One resident recently commented on the fun she had bringing her two daughters to Roosevelt Park to fly a kite and observe the bees outs, scrimmages and actual games. But for basketball, only socially distanced workouts and skills and drills are allowed. There are a slew of other rules, including mandatory face masks and social distancing for spectators for both indoor and outdoor sports. Only 25 players are allowed on a field or a court at one time; players are required to wear face masks when they are not actively engaged in play; and umpires and referees must wear masks and maintain six feet of distance between themselves and the athletes. Malden restaurants adjust The rules for organized sports seem complicated and almost impossible to enforce. But the veterans of Phase 2, Steps 1 and 2, which in Malden are the servers and staff of the city’s many restaurants, say they have adjusted to health and safety regmoving the pollen from clover to clover. Others use the space to practice Tai Chi or kick a ball around. With days in the 80s and 90s the field is a place that provides natural cooling to a congested area of our City. And with the last few days of local flooding, our parks are crucial to mitigating flooding, especially in neighborhoods like Playstead Road where flooding has always been an issue. Let’s make it clear, who will be benefiting from this project and who will be losing? Malden needs to embrace the guidelines and processes of Environmental Justice: Environmental justice is the fair treatment and meaningful involvement of all people regardless of race, color, national origin, or income, with respect to the development, implementation, and enforcement of environmental laws, regulations, and policies. This goal will be achieved when everyone enjoys: • the same degree of protection from environmental and health hazards, and • equal access to the decision-making process to have a healthy environment in which to live, learn, and work. We ask, once again, for the ulations and are moving forward. “It’s different than we expected,” said John Caruso, the server manager at Pearl Street Station, which reopened with 23 outdoor tables in the restaurant’s parking lot. Pearl Street now has a limited number of indoor tables for customers. “People seem to want to get out of the house,” said Caruso. “It’s been busy and it’s picking up.” Customers are greeted by staff wearing face masks and led to tables that are spread six feet apart. Once they are seated, they can take off their face masks. “I think those types of safety measures are the first thing customers are looking for,” said Caruso. “When they see those things, they can feel relaxed.” But there are no cozy corners filled with groups occasionally interacting with one another, no clusters of friends sharing a drink at the team of individuals promoting this project to pause. This project does not seem to represent UniteMalden or environmental justice for people of color in our community. The $1.8 million of Community Preservation funds needs to be returned to the CPC account for projects that are inclusive of all Malden residents and especially those who will be most affected. UniteMalden needs to begin first by uniting the voices of diversity speaking out against a project that is going to affect the quality of life of school children and a neighborhood.

Despite the low levels of new cases of COVID-19, Baker has said that Phase 4, which will allow bars, nightclubs and large function halls to reopen, will not start until there is an effective treatment or vaccine for the coronavirus. “It hasn’t been made clear what the next step will be, so we keep waiting for word from the governor,” said Caruso. “At this point, it’s just good to be open.” Business Development Director Kevin Duffy said that when the state approved outdoor seating for restaurants, the City of Malden spun into action to approve as many patio-seating plans as possible. “Mystic Station has set up a beautiful outdoor seating area in front of Malden Access TV,” said Link to EPA-Environmental Justice https://www.epa.gov/environmentaljustice Link to Equity in Socio Economic Environmental Justice, ACE-Alliance for Climate Education h ttps://ac espac e . org/2018/10/15/equi - ty-in-a-time-of-socio-environmental-justice/?gclid=Cj0KCQjwudb3BRC9ARIsAEa-vUvJ8ucV_ffXhMap -VsOSY9AmCHyex - e3cXsqZ31UXfLZizvGGdMYqR0aAoRaEALw_wcB Link to Fighting for Environmental Justice, Conservation Law Foundation https://www.clf.org/strategies/environmental-justice/?gclid=Cj0KCQjwudb3BRC9ARIsAEa-vUsKOR-ssvitW4XxQmxXOTMgyfXyFWlrLpylcgu5nmegzvMOn9mburUaAtbVEALw_wcB UNITEMalden 2020 https://www.cityofmalden. org/741/UniteMalden-2020 Malden Vulnerability Plan https://www.cityofmalden. org/702/Municipal-Vulnerability-Preparedness (Draft pgs. https://www.cityofmalden.org/DocumentCenter/ View/2297/List-of-Qualifying-MVP-Action-Grant-Projects-PDF?bidId= Duffy. Customers can sit outside and sip a frozen cocktail and try to finish one of the restaurant’s enormous burgers. “We take reservations and walk ups if a table is open, and we still do takeout and pickup,” said Amelia, who has worked at Mystic Station for two and a half years. Reservations are capped at one hour and 15 minutes to give the staff time to sanitize the table, chairs and all surfaces for the next customer. “I offer everyone hand sanitizer,” said Amelia, who, like Caruso, feels customers are reassured when they see the safety measures and precautions in action. “So far, it’s been better than I expected.” Like Malden restaurants, Malden sports teams and players may find that playing under the state’s COVID-19 safety guidelines is a different experience. But like the restaurants, they will no doubt adjust and be pleased to at least be in the game.

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, July 10, 2020 Page 11 Summer Fun COVID-19 cases remain at zero for fifth straight week MSO staff members donate plasma to help others battling COVID B ILLERICA – For a fifth straight week, the number of incarcerated individuals testing positive for COVID-19 at the Middlesex Jail & House of Correction stands at zero, Middlesex Sheriff Peter J. Koutoujian announced this week. “Over the past four months, our staff has done an incredible job confronting this unprecedented public health challenge,” said Sheriff Koutoujian.“While we have reached an important milestone in our efforts to address COVID-19, we remain vigilant.The health and safety of our incarcerated population, our staff, and our wider community remain our chief priority.” During the last five weeks 14 total COVID tests were administered, all of which came back negative.Of those 14 tests, ten were conducted as precautionary measures including seven of which were for individuals either re-entering the community or being transferred to other jurisdictions.Four individuals entering the facility from the community were immediately isolated and tested based on medical protocols.

Page 12 THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, July 10, 2020 avvyavvya y n iorvy S oreniioor vv io iori by Jim Miller RV Travel Tips in the Summer of COVID Dear Savvy Senior, Can you write a column on RV travel for novices? My husband and I have been cooped up all spring and summer because of the coronavirus and would like to take a trip using a rented RV but could use some tips and want to be safe. Recently Retired Dear Recently, Recreational-vehicle (or RV) travel has become a very popular option among U.S. retirees over the past few decades and is probably one of the safest and most convenient ways to get away this summer. Because it’s a small home on wheels, RV travel will allow you to distance yourself from crowds of people and reduce your risk of COVID exposure that comes with other forms of travel, i.e. air/train travel, hotel/Airbnb lodging and eating in restaurants. But there are still risks – especially in public places like gas stations, shared restrooms and picnic areas – so exercise caution. If you’ve never traveled by motor home or RV, here are a few tips to consider. Renting an RV To help you determine the RV size and model you need for your trip, consider your budget, destination and the number of travelers. If it’s just you and your husband, and you’re visiting several locations and driving lots of miles you may want a smaller motor home with better fuel economy. But if you’re taking other family members or friends, you may want a larger RV with slide outs and more sleeping areas. See GoRVing.com for a breakdown of all the diff erent types of RVs available today. To locate an RV rental dealer near you visit CruiseAmerica. com, one of the largest RV rental companies in the world or search the Recreation Vehicle Rental Association at RVRA.org. Or use peer-to-peer RV rental sites like RVshare.com or Outdoorsy. com, which are usually a little cheaper. Rental costs will vary greatly depending on what you choose and how far you drive, ranging anywhere from $50 up to $500 per day. When renting a rig, be sure you get detailed instructions from the owner or rental company on how to use the RV’s systems, including the generator, air-conditioning, leveling, slide outs, electric and entertainment, as well as how to empty waste tanks and refi ll fresh water. You should also know that because of COVID-19, most RV rental companies are vigilant about cleaning and disinfecting their units. But if you want to be extra safe, the CDC off ers tips at CDC.gov/COVID19 – type “Cleaning and Disinfecting Your Home” in the search bar. Trip Planning Tips It’s always wise to map out your trip route and reserve your campgrounds in advance, especially now during the pandemic, because some campgrounds and RV parks, as well as local, state, and national public parks may be closed or operating with restrictions. A free tool that can help you plan your trip is Roadtrippers. com, which lets you plot out routes, calculate mileage and travel time, and will identify RV campgrounds, points of interest and restaurants along the way. You should also consider becoming a Good Sam Club member (GoodSam.com/club, $29/year), which provides access to its web-based trip planner, camping and fuel discounts, and a copy of the Good Sam Guide Series that features detailed information on more than 12,000 private RV parks and public campgrounds. Most RV parks rent spaces on a nightly or weekly basis with rates typically ranging from $30 to $50 per night, however some in city and country parks may be $10 or even free. RV parks can also range from rustic facilities with limited or no utility hookups, as are more often found in state and national parks, to luxury resorts with amenities that rival fi ne hotels. For fi rst-time RV renters, staying at a fully loaded RV park or campground with full hookups, a dump station, and staff on site is highly recommended. Look at Kampgrounds of America (KOA.com) or ReserveAmerica.com to browse the accommodations.

Other provisions provide prepaid return postage for ballots and applications for ballots; set August 26 as the deadline to apply to early vote by mail in the September 1 primary and October 28 as the deadline to apply to early vote by mail in the November 3 general election; provide for absentee voting by any person taking precaution related to COVID-19; require Galvin, in conjunction with the commissioner of the Department of Public Health, to establish emergency regulations requiring public health safeguards for in-person voting, including social distancing of voters and election officers, face coverings and personal protective equipment, frequent use of sanitizers and sanitary use of marking pens. “This bill is essential to the operation and integrity of democracy in the commonwealth during this public health crisis,” said Election Laws Committee House Chair John Lawn (D-Watertown). “I am truly proud of the team effort that led us to the finish line to complete comprehensive legislation that will safeguard elections this fall and provide many options for voters to ensure that all voices are heard. In a time where we are witnessing state election actions that are resulting in a disproportionate burden on the voter, Massachusetts must take the lead in providing safe and equitable access to the polls for its citizens. This legislation does just that.” “The Massachusetts Legislature just adopted a critical election reform package that will help ensure that no citizen has to choose between their health and their right to vote,” said Pam Wilmot, Executive Director of Common Cause which has fought hard for the bill. “The bill embodies best practices from across the country and will help our election system cope with the unprecedented threat of COVID-19.” “We started this process with the goal to make voting easier during COVID-19 and this bill does just that by providing voters with options,” said Election Laws Committee Senate Chair Sen. Barry Finegold (D-North Andover). “For the first time ever in Massachusetts, voters can vote by mail and vote early in both the 2020 primary and general elections. In-person voting on Election Day remains an option and is made safer in this legislation. The bill equips clerks with the tools they need to count ballots expeditiously and adapt to these election advancements.” “We applaud the House, Senate and governor for firmly moving to brace our elections for COVID-19,” said Cheryl Clyburn Crawford, Executive Director at MassVOTE. “Now we need to prepare. This means partnering with local election officials to ensure that they have the tools they need to run our elections this fall and educate voters so they may confidently cast their ballots in September and November.” Rep. Colleen Garry (D-Dracut), the lone opponent of the bill, did not respond to repeated requests by Beacon Hill Roll Call to explain why she voted against the measure. Back on June 3, Garry did offer the reason she voted against an earlier version of the bill: “I was very concerned about the manpower needed in the clerk’s offices especially in the smaller communities like I represent,” she said. “The expense of the expansion of the mailings and the need for more election personnel on longer early voting days and the possibility of fraud [is why I voted against the bill.] I heard loudly from my constituents that they did not agree with this proposal.” (A “Yes” vote is for the bill. A “No” vote is against it.) Rep. Paul DonatoYes Rep. Steven Ultrino Yes Sen. Jason LewisYes $200 MILLION FOR LOCAL ROADS AND BRIDGES (H 4803) House 159-0, Senate 39-0, reduced from $300 to $200 million Chapter 90 funding for cities and towns for the maintenance, repair and improvement of local roads and bridges. The House in March and the Senate in early June, approved proposals that included $300 million in Chapter 90 funding for cities and towns’ local roads and bridges. That $300 million was a $100 million increase over last year. The Senate version of the legislation also established a new seven-member MBTA Board of Directors to succeed the current Fiscal Management and Control Board. The MBTA Board of Directors would be responsible for governing and exercising the corporate powers of the MBTA. The Senate version differed from the House version which does not create a brand-new MBTA board but instead extends and expands the existing Fiscal and Management Control Board. The House and Senate changed their minds and reached an agreement to reduce the road and bridge funding to $200 million and to keep the MBTA’s Fiscal and Management Control Board in place for another year. That measure is now on Gov. Baker’s desk. Supporters of the reduction say that, in retrospect, the state cannot afford the extra $100 million while state revenues are down by billions of dollars. Despite repeated requests by Beacon Hill Roll Call, House Transportation Committee chair Rep. William Strauss (D-Mattapoisett) and Senate chair Joseph Boncore (D-Winthrop) did not respond when asked to explain why they both championed the original $300 million and then supported the reduction to $200 million. The Massachusetts Municipal Association (MMA) expressed mixed feelings. “On behalf of cities and towns, we are glad that the Chapter 90 bond bill has been enacted, so that communities can access desperately needed funds to repair and rebuild local roadways,” said MMA Executive Director and CEO Geoff Beckwith. “However, our members are understandably disappointed that the funding level remains flat at $200 million, rather than the $300 million amount that representatives and senators voted to support earlier in the process. MMA will continue to advocate for an increase in Chapter 90 road funds, so that communities can adequately maintain 30,000 miles of local roads.» (A «Yes» vote is for the $200 million) Rep. Paul DonatoYes Rep. Steven Ultrino Yes Sen. Jason LewisYes RACIAL DISPARITIES IN MATERNAL MORTALITY (H 4818) House 159-0, approved and sent to the Senate a bill that would create a special 23-member commission to examine and make recommendations to reduce or eliminate racial disparities in the death of mothers before, during and after childbirth. The commission would look for problems and solutions by examining evidence-based practices, including approaches taken by other states or grassroots organizations to reduce or eliminate racial disparities in maternal mortality or severe maternal morbidity; barriers to accessing prenatal and postpartum care, how that care is delivered and the quality of that care; and how historical and current structural, institutional and individual forms of racism, including implicit bias or discrimination, affect the incidence and prevalence of maternal mortality in communities of color. “Tragically in the commonwealth, black women are twice as likely to die from pregnancy-related causes and have twice the rate of maternal morbidities as white women,” said Rep. Kay Khan (D-Newton), one of the bill’s sponsors. “These inequities are the result of generations of systemic racism in health care. This legislation offers a long overdue opportunity to begin righting this wrong. As leaders in state government, and personally for me as a nurse, I believe it is incumbent upon us to do everything we can to ensure all Massachusetts mothers are healthy and thriving.” The 23-member commission would include the House and Senate chairs of the Committee on Public Health, a member of the Black and Latino Legislative Caucus, the Massachusetts Medical Society and the Ellen Story Commission on Postpartum Depression. Others include a midwife, an obstetrician and a gynecologist; two members from a community of color; and a person who has lost an immediate family member to maternal mortality. (A “Yes” vote is for the bill). Rep. Paul DonatoYes Rep. Steven Ultrino Yes $1.1 BILLION FOR COVID-19 RESPONSE (S 2789) Senate 39-0, approved a bill that would provide $1.1 billion to cover expenses related to response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Gov. Baker has been urging the Legislature to quickly get a spending bill to his desk because the state cannot be eligible for federal reimbursements for costs related to the respiratory virus until a package is approved by the Legislature and signed by the governor. The package includes $350 million for personal protective equipment, $139 million for rate add-ons for providers, $82 million for child care needs including emergency child care for essential workers, $15 million for essential behavioral health services including services for children, $15 million for food security support, $10 million for grants to community foundations with direct support like housing assistance, and $10 million for wage and benefit support to workers impacted by the virus. “This bill will help the commonwealth continue to make strides in its fight against COVID-19 as well as support the many sectors impacted by this unprecedented public health crisis,” said Senate President Karen Spilka (D-Ashland). “With the Senate actively working on legislation to address racial inequities, I am thrilled this bill takes the historic step of recognizing the importance of Juneteenth—a day celebrating the liberation of the remaining enslaved African Americans— and making it a state holiday.” “Due to the unprecedented challenges facing our commonwealth, this supplemental budget will allow us to maximize federal aid to support COVID-19 response costs and provide critical resources to help working families and our most vulnerable populations,” said Sen. Mike Rodrigues (D-Westport) the chair of the Senate Committee on Ways & Means. (A “Yes” vote is for the bill.) Sen. Jason Lewis Yes 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 29July 3, the House met for a total of 13 hours and 22 minutes while the Senate met for a total of eleven hours and 33 minutes. Mon. June 29 House 11:02 a.m. to 3:57 p.m. Senate 11:17 a.m. to 4:02 p.m. Tues. June 30 House 11:01 a.m. to 2:25 p.m. No Senate session Wed. July 1 No House session No Senate session Thurs.
