(Courtesy Photo) By Peter F. Levine just loved the now defunct Malden Evening News. I read the paper religiously as far back as when the actual News building was on Ferry Street where CVS is now located. The M.E.N. covered national, international and local news like it was nobody’s business. Editor David Brickman was respected across the Commonwealth and put the News (and Malden) on the print media map. In those days if your name or picture appeared on those pages, it deserved to be on those pages. The News fell on hard times after the death of Mr. Brickman. Steve Freker (now with The Malden Advocate) kept the paper alive and the doors open over the years (mostly) all by himself before it burned and crashed. One journalist I enjoyed reading before the fall was Kevin Maccioli. Freck and Mac, the News’ “dynamic duo,” were a potent one-two punch.

The title “50th Anniversary: Malden Pony League 13-14’s went all the way to the World Series.” Enjoy: “Imagine, if you will, there’s a Republican in the White House, a Kennedy in the Senate and the City of Malden’s collective attention is being held captive by a group of young baseball players. “Now, imagine the Republican President is Dwight Eisenhower not George W. Bush [remember, this was written in ’08], the Kennedy in the Senate is John not Ted, and those players are a group of all-stars from the Malden Pony League, not the Malden Babe Ruth League. “For those who were living in the city in the days before Camelot, the scenario above might sound awfully familiar and with good reason: it really happened in the summer of 1958. “In that summer 62 years ago, 15 young men – ages 13-14 – went on the ride of their lives, winning four games in Massachusetts and the other three in New York to advance to the Pony League Series in Washington PA, where they finished fifth in the nation. “The champion that year came from Miami, Fla. And contained, ironically, another Malden native. “‘We travel all the way to Pennsylvania and there’s Tommy Shannon playing for Miami when he had just been in Malden and some of us had played with him,’ said Kevin Geaney, who was a second baseman and outfielder for the Malden squad. “En route to Pennsylvania, the local nine knocked off an East Boston team that contained future Boston Red Sox star Tony Conigliaro, according to John Berggren. Berggren was a pitcher and second baseman for the Malden squad that was coached by Mike and William Enwright and Tom Reid. Mike Enwright was then a Malden police detective, while Reid was a teacher. “‘The coaches were super,’ said Berggren. ‘They made sure our fundamentals were excellent and that’s how we won.’ “The success of the squad quickly impacted the future of baseball in the city, with the powers that be at the time deciding to eliminate Pony League Baseball in Malden in favor of Babe Ruth Baseball. “In 1958, Pony League ball was only for 13 and 14-year old’s, but Babe Ruth was for teens 13-15, meaning the team that made it to the world series that year could make another run at a title in 1959 if the switch was made. ‘“The wisdom was ‘We almost won the series as Pony League and we’d have everybody back for another try if we converted to Babe Ruth,’” said longtime Malden Babe Ruth coach Bob Rotondi, who was a little league coach at the time. “While the plan did not quite work out as planned, with Malden dropping its first and only game in the 1959 tournament 1-0 to Winchester, it did give birth to a league now celebrating its 50th [at the time in 2008] anniversary. “For Berggren, Geaney and their teammates George ‘Buddy’ Arthur, Anthony Benedetto, Robert Casey, Anthony Conti, Loring ‘Larry’ Culleton, Dennis Della Piana, John Donovan, Billy LaFave, John Puopolo, Bobby Quartiello (now Bob Tello), David Roberts, William P.

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, July 24, 2020 ~Editorial & Opinion~ Page 3 Malden School Families Heed the Call T he COVID-19 pandemic has turned the world upside-down in many ways and some of those who have been affected most adversely have been our most vulnerable, those at either ends of the age spectrum: Our elderly and our youth. While our senior citizen class has borne the brunt of the tragedies of illness and death which have come with COVID-19, our young people have also suff ered losses and upheavals in other ways, most notably to their social and academic progress. When COVID-19 forced the closing of school buildings and a reversion process to remote learning, via personal computers, laptops and even IPhones, it was a drastic change for Malden students and those around the world. When the Malden school year concluded in June, and, truthfully, well before that, thoughts and eyes were already focused ahead to the next school year. "What does "Back to school" look like in the fall of 2020?" has been a common refrain. While Malden Superintendent John Oteri and his staff have been working closely with the appointed Re-Entry Advisory Task Force to come up with a safe and suitable plan to return to school, they were still waiting for one key element: feedback from the families that comprise the Malden Public Schools district. That is why we celebrate the result and commend all of the nearly 80 percent of Malden school families — with nearly 4,000 responses strong—who took part in a well-planned Family Survey which asked local parents and guardians for their personal input as to thoughts, concerns and questions regarding the students for whom they provide. To reach such a high level of participation and provide such compelling data is vital for those in the Malden Public Schools charged with coming up with the best return-to-school plan. As Supt. Oteri himself pointed out, this survey was not about suggesting spending funding or assigning staffi ng, this was about the safety and health of Sen. Lewis joins colleagues in passing legislation to invest $18B in transportation infrastructure T he State Senate recently passed major legislation to invest nearly $18 billion in the Commonwealth’s transportation infrastructure in the coming years, in order to make the state’s roads, bridges and public transit systems more reliable and accessible to all residents. This transportation bond bill authorizes funding for highways, local roads, bridges, MBTA, regional transit authorities, rail improvements, electric vehicle grants and other transportation projects and programs. “I’m pleased that the Senate has passed this vital legislation that will make many improvements to our transportation infrastructure,” said State Senator Jason Lewis. “I was particularly pleased that I was able to secure a successful amendment to increase funding for our state’s Complete Streets program, which provides technical assistance and funding to municipalities in order to enable safe mobility access for all users, including pedestrians, bicyclists, motorists and transit riders of all ages and abilities.” In addition to securing $50 million for the statewide Complete Streets program, Senator Lewis was successful in securing $5.2 million in local transportation earmarks for his district (local earmarks are authorized by this legislation, but the funding does not become available until it is released by Governor Charlie Baker). The legislation also includes numerous transportation policy initiatives, including eff orts to address traffi c congestion, allowing regional ballot initiatives to fund local transportation projects, improving data collection from transportation network companies, improving the bidding process for public construction projects, evaluating the potential for mileage-based revenue collection as an alternative to the current system of toll roads and gas taxes, increasing the productivity, equity and environmental sustainability of bus and rail services, and establishing regulations for scooters and e-bikes. The bill will now be reconciled with similar legislation passed by the House of Representatives before it is sent to the governor for his signature. their children, as well as their educational progress. This was visceral. Again, we commend the many families who stood up to have their say about their children's futures and also the school offi cials who conducted and monitored the survey, now to review the results.

Regardless of profession, COVID-19 sent millions of Americans to the unemployment line without warning. COVID-19 hurt families. That is why local photographer Kevin Thai, the owner of Three Circles Studio in Malden, recently participated in the largest single-day photo initiative that provided 10,000 unemployed Americans with headshots. For Thai, this pandemic is personal. “My father was forced to retire early and my family had their stores permanently closed, he said. “My company shuttered all their U.S. locations, forcing me to turn to my photography to We Now Offer For Your Eating Pleasure “UBER EATS” Convenient Delivery Service Bianchi’s Pizza and Renzo’s Full Menu To Go Open for Takeout for Bianchi’s Pizza and Renzo’s Food 381 Revere Beach Blvd., Revere 781-284-5600 Booker.com for details and schedule a time to be photographed.

The Coronavirus Count State reports 13 new confirmed Malden COVID-19 cases; state focuses on positive cases over last 14 days O ver the past week, the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases in Malden increased from 1,267 to 1,280 cases, according to the latest weekly city/town cases available on Wednesday. For the second consecutive week, the state did not publish the rate of COVID-19 cases per 100,000 population -- a statistical analysis which two weeks ago showed Malden had the 29th highest rate for Coronavirus in the state, with an average of 1,844.92 cases per 100,000. The statistic made it easy to compare the incidence of COVID-19 to other communities, large and small. The state Department of Public Health (DPH) website now lists a measurement which focuses on test results over the past 14 days up until Wednesday. Those statistics showed 12,915 Malden residents have been tested for the virus so far – including 1,604 over the past 14 days; of those tested, there were 34 confirmed cases of the virus for a positivity rate of 2.12 percent during that time. That is more than the average state positivity rate of 1.67 percent. Last week’s positivity rate was 2.64 percent, according to the latest state report. That was higher than the state positivity average of 2.25 percent over the same period. People can compare the number of COVID-19 cases confirmed in Malden to those in neighboring cities and towns as well as communities of similar size by going to the DPH website at https://www.mass.gov/ info-details/covid-19-response-reporting, then click on COVID-19 cases by city/ town. Here’s how nine other area communities compare to Malden: Lynn: 3,779 cases, 136 total positive tests in the last 14 days, 3.62 percent positivity. Revere: 1,870 cases, 70 total positive tests in the last 14 days, 4.30 percent positivity. Everett: 1,823 cases, 52 total positive tests in the last 14 days, 2.22 percent positivity. Malden: 1,280 cases, 34 total positive tests in the last 14 days, 2.12 percent positivity. Peabody: 1,021 cases, 29 total positive tests in the last 14 days, 1.79 percent positivity. Saugus: 566 cases, 12 total positive tests in the last 14 days, 1.67 percent positivity. Wakefield: 326 cases, 8 total positive tests in the last 14 days, 1.03 percent positivity. Melrose: 273 cases, 27 positive tests in the last 14 days, 1.48 percent positivity. Reading: 305 cases, 5 positive tests in the last 14 days, .75 percent positivity. Lynnfield: 98 cases, 0 positive tests in the last 14 days, 0 percent positivity. Statewide totals: 112,347 cases, 3,011 positive tests in the last 14 days, 1.67 percent positivity.

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, July 24, 2020 Page 5 SCHOOL | FROM PAGE 1 dent of Schools John Oteri reported Wednesday that over 3,700 responses have been recorded. “This means that between 75-80 percent of Malden Public Schools families gave feedback and shared their thoughts and potential concerns on returning to school in September,” Supt. Oteri said. “We are very pleased to receive such a tremendous number of responses to a survey on such an important topic.” Town Halls planned next week on survey results The Superintendent said he and his staff along with MPS Re-Entry Advisory Task Force members are now studying the survey results, with the intent of sharing them with the public next week at a series of virtual Town Halls, which will be presented online in conjunction with the offi ce of Mayor Gary Christenson. The Town Halls, which will include citizen participation in a Zoom Meeting format, are tentatively planned for Tuesday, July 28, 7:00-8:30 p.m.; Thursday, July 30, 5:00-6:30 p.m.; and Friday, July 31, 12:001:30 p.m. The Town Halls will be broadcast online through links to the City of Malden website, and more information is available on the MPS website at www.maldenps.org and cityofmalden.org. “The virtual Town Halls will be community listening sessions. It will be another opportunity for our school families to receive information, give feedback and ask questions regarding the return of their children to the school environment in September,” Supt. Oteri said, explaining that the Advisory Task Force recommended establishing the listening sessions after discussing the survey response at its most recent meeting Tuesday. The COVID-19 pandemic closed schools statewide in midMarch, with Malden one of the fi rst districts to close individually before the state mandate. Malden, like nearly every school in Massachusetts and nationwide, shifted into a remote learning educational model which lasted until the end of the academic year in June. Return-to-school plan in the works Since before school ended on June 19 and to the present, Supt. Oteri, his central staff cabinet, other staff members and the Re-Entry Advisory Task Force have been working continuously on developing a return-toschool plan for the district. He has stressed the plan’s top priority is protecting the safety and health of students, their families and MPS personnel while providing essential academic instruction. “We have been meeting frequently and exchanging ideas and information while at the same time monitoring and evaluating the latest guidance from a number of sources at the local, state and federal level,” Supt. Oteri told The Malden Advocate. The Central Staff cabinet is still awaiting the newest guidance from Commissioner Jeff rey Riley of the Massachusetts Dept. of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE), which is expected in early August. Three diff erent returnto-school plans being formulated Working on the mandate of the last DESE directive in June, Malden school officials are now compiling three different return-to-school formats. Superintendent John Oteri They include a full traditional in-person school day; a completely remote learning model, which was used from midMarch to end of school this year; and a hybrid model, comprised of a mix of in-person and remote learning. Some hybrid models discussed around the state have cited potential interchanging full “A” and “B” weeks of in-person and remote learning. “We have made a lot of progress toward formulating a safe, complete and suitable reentry plan for the Malden Public Schools,” Supt. Oteri said, “and we await the newest guidance from DESE and Governor Baker’s offi ce on returning to school before we fi nalize our district’s return-to-school recommendation.” Supt. Oteri said that details of the district's return-to-school plans remain “in the works” and when completed, will be presented to the public in August, before the start of school in September.

Oteri said. “Through this entire process, our priority has remained the same: protecting the safety and health and of our students, their families, our educators, administrators and staff while at the same time safeguarding our students’ academic equity and integrity,” he added. “We are glad our families have already taken on an important role in providing valuable, much-needed feedback to guide and assist our reentry planning,” Supt. Oteri said. “We look forward to next week’s community listening Town Halls to get even more information from those families within the district.” The Superintendent made particular mention of the continual work being done toward the formulation of the district’s reentry plan. “I would like to commend the members of our Re-Entry Advisory Task Force and those from the central staff cabinet who have been working diligently and tirelessly through these summer weeks on establishing a safe and effective reentry plan for our district,” he said.

Page 6 THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, July 24, 2020 ~ Editorial & Opinion ~ Uber and Lyft continue to have unfair advantage over taxi companies F or the past 11 years, taxi companies that have been around for decades have been struggling to compete with rideshare companies, most notably, Uber Technologies, Inc. and Lyft, Inc. We believe that healthy business competition is good for the consumer; however, there needs to be a level playing field. That has not been the case with the taxi and rideshare companies. Unlike the taxi companies, Uber and Lyft are somehow exempt from state regulations. We also agree with the lawsuit recently filed by Attorney General Maura Healey maintaining that Uber and Lyft drivers are employees rather than independent contractors. Therefore, they should be protected under the state’s wage and hour laws. This protection would grant them the right to receive minimum wage, overtime pay and earned sick time. “Uber and Lyft have built their billion-dollar businesses while denying their drivers basic employee protections and benefits for years,” said Healey. “This business model is unfair and exploitative. We are seeking this determination from the court because these drivers have a right to be treated fairly.” Why this has not been the case right along is beyond comprehension. Market them anyway you want, but at the end of the day, Uber and Lyft are also taxi companies. Last year alone, Uber reported revenue of $14.1 billion while Lyft reported revenue of $3.6 billion. Clearly, they can afford to treat their employees fairly and obey the state’s regulations. State Rep. Lipper-Garabedian to host virtual office hours July 28 S tate Representative Kate Lipper-Garabedian announced that she and her office will hold virtual office hours for constituents on Tuesday, July 28, from noon to 1 p.m. Constituents will be able to speak with the office by computer or phone. Lipper-Garabedian’s office hours are always open to the public to enable residents to speak directCOVID-19 | FROM PAGE 1 presented. Responses range from sending students and staff members home if they display symptoms, to shutting down school districts if a severe enough COVID-19 outbreak is determined. According to the DESE guidance, there are no “one size fits all” mitigation plans, and “the risk of exposure to COVID-19 in schools will not be zero,” despite any steps that are taken. “It is not one mitigation strategy but a combination of all these strategies taken together that will substantially reduce the risk of transmission. No single strategy can ever be perfect, but all strategies together will reduce risk,” according to the guidance document released Friday. Scenarios described in the DESE document cover all areas of school activities, including whether students or staff are symptomatic on the buses or at home or while attending in-person classes. A form of tracing is stressed in the document, including notifying close contacts if a student or staff member is either symptomatic or tests positive for COVID-19.

It is titled “Protocols for Responding to COVID-19 Scenarios.” The document reads, “A safe return to in-person school environments will require a culture of health and safety every step of the way.” Some of the protocols “Staff must monitor themselves for symptoms daily and students, with the assistance of families, must also be monitored daily for symptoms. Staff and students must stay home if feeling unwell. Everyone must do their part to protect others and not come to school if they are exhibiting any COVID-19 symptoms or are feeling sick. “Masks are among the most important single measures to contain the spread of COVID-19. We require students second grade and above and all staff to wear masks that adequately cover both their nose and ly with her and her staff about any issue.

Younger children are strongly encouraged to wear masks. Exceptions must be made for students with medical, behavioral, or other challenges who are unable to wear masks/ face coverings. “Hand hygiene is critical. Students and staff are required to exercise hand hygiene (handwashing or sanitizing) upon arrival to school, before eating, before putting on and taking off masks, and before dismissal. “Physical distance greatly reduces the risk of transmission. As COVID-19 is transmitted through respiratory droplets, putting distance between yourself and others reduces risk. In classroom settings, when all parties are wearing masks, a minimum of three feet of separation is needed; if one or both parties are not wearing masks, six feet is needed. (Kindergarten and first grade students without masks may be three feet apart, but no less, which is permissible given the lower susceptibility of the age group). “Cohorts/assigned seating. Students organized in groups/ classrooms and other cohorts help mitigate transmission of the virus. Assigned seating is important because it effectively creates even smaller groups within cohorts which minimize transmission. Assigned seats can also assist with contact tracing. Wherever possible, seats should be assigned (including classroom, bus, and meals). “To support a culture of health and safety, schools must have robust and reliable ways to communicate with all families, students, teachers, and staff in order to send and receive key messages related to COVID-19.” DESE has mandated that school districts must submit a preliminary reopening plan by July 31. Malden Supt. Oteri and his staff have been working closely with the Re-Entry Advisory Task Force to formulate Malden’s reentry plan. A second DESE deadline of Aug. 10 is when districts must finalize their plan and release them publicly to the community, as they submit them to DESE for review.

I first met Richie back in 1970, seventh grade at Beebe Jr. High. Richie was bused across town to Beebe from Forestdale along with Greg Lucey, Paul Figelski, John Crannell, Jimmy Harris, Mike Upham and Jay Gramolini. To this day I have no idea why. The Forestdale bunch easily integrated with us Edgeworth boys: myself, Jimmy & Jerry Damiano, Dave Angelo, Billy Settemio, Johnny Puleo, Mike Scibelli, Tony Della Gatta and a cast of many other (characters). Richie loved life. And truth be told, lived on the edge at times, like many from that generation. He loved a good game of tackle football, a robust swim in his pool, a cold Schlitz or two and, from time to time, only on special occasions, sweet Mary Jane. In equal parts mind you. A notorious flirt – the girls adored him. Richie fit in with any of the many crowds that congregated on the streets of Malden in those days. He was a Devir boy via Forestdale, but he was right at home at the corner of Whitman and Highland, or the Pleasant Street Bowling Alley – Tina Gaudette’s house on a Friday night – Al’s Pool Room or behind the Glenwood on a Saturday night. You get the idea. Richie was a popular kid. And he was also a notorious prankster. He nearly split his gut with laughter when he heard the results of the prank he pulled way back in 1976. George Wallace was running for president. George Wallace was a divisive candidate, despised in Massachusetts for his less than enlightening views. Sound familiar? Richie placed a G.W. bumper sticker on the back of a mutual friend’s car. Said mutual friend barely made it past Wellington Circle alive. It was a ’70s thing, I guess. He could hit a softball a mile, when he didn’t swing through the pitch that is. I kid, Richie. Richie could swim better than any of us, I will admit. That is not fake news. And he loved to strut his stuff, especially if there were pretty girls poolside. Time spent in his backyard by his pool are treasured memories. Dave O’Brien remembers that Richie could “drive a ‘stick,’ while smoking a cigarette, nursing a ‘soft drink,’ turned all the way around and telling a story to his friends in the back seat of the car better than anybody he ever drove with.” While not exactly one of life’s great achievements, this was one of the many unique and wonderful aspects of Richie’s unmistakable personality. Richie disappeared on us in the late 1970s. I spoke with him years later and he related how he was spending a lot of time with old Malden boy Dave “Double Dribble” Doyle in Harvard Square. How on a random cold winter’s night he and Dave shared a pint of cheer with the Bruce Springsteen at a small hideaway dive on Bow Street. Explain that, I cannot. Disprove it, I also cannot. Insert smiley face. He’s related to most of Malden. His cousin Bobby O’Keefe reminded me that Richie was a “great guy who would give you the shirt off his back.” Bobby, thanks for reaching out. I have known that since that very first day in 7th grade when he lent me a copy of his treasured Sports Illustrated (the swimsuit edition!). His uncle Billy is a legendary figure in the history of Malden politics, most notably his reign in Ward 2 as Councilor where he was adored on both sides of Highland Avenue – the Irish and the Italian side – Callahan Park deservedly named after him. His uncle Eddie was tragically murdered in 1963 responding to a robbery in progress at the A&P Supermarket on Pleasant Street as a Malden Police Officer. The Edward C. Callahan Memorial Square is now located across the street from the long-gone A&P. His brother Paul also dabbled in politics (I believe), spending time as Ward 5 Councilor back in the 1980s (?). His cousin Kathy (Keogh) Baker from Illinois was a loyal and loving friend until the very end. Richie fought the good fight, in life and in death, his saintly wife Linda making Richie’s last journey as painless as possible: “One of the most courageous and toughest guys I know, lost his battle with cancer yesterday. Thank you, Richie, for showing us what courage really means and reminding us of how precious life is and what is truly important. You are leaving behind so many memories and sweet thoughts that will live in our hearts forever. I find comfort in knowing you are no longer suffering in pain and that you are in the presence of God now. Forever in our hearts.” Richie is preceded in death by a man who had his back from that very first day at Beebe, the late Jimmy Damiano. Our world will never be the same without you two. Jimmy and Richie playing five card stud once again.

Page 10 THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, July 24, 2020 MIAA Board votes to delay start of High School Fall Sports season to Sept. 14 Hope remains for H.S. fall teams, though state officials will have the final say in August By Steve Freker H igh school student-athletes all across Massachusetts who are hoping to get out there and compete in fall sports got a major boost Tuesday. The Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association (MIAA) Board of Directors voted unanimously (18-0) to accept the MIAA COVID-19 Task Force’s recommendation to push back the start of all fall sports until Monday, Sept. 14. By waiting until mid-September, it would mean fall athletics would not begin until schools are back in session. Most high schools in Massachusetts, including those in Everett, Malden, Revere and Saugus, are scheduled to begin classes between Sept. 1 and Sept. 8. The Sept. 14 start date would also mean that is the date supervised practices and workouts might begin with coaches working with players. Games would not be scheduled or held until at least a week after that date, two weeks or more for football, under the proposal voted on by the Board. Even still, despite the MIAA Board’s positive vote, the fate of fall sports still lies with guidelines still to be set and released through Governor Charlie Baker’s office by the Massachusetts Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs (EEA) as well as guidance from the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE). MIAA’s vote represents positive progress, but the state agencies will announce sometime in early August what fall sports, if any, they determine can safely be played at the High school football teams are chomping at the bit waiting to get started, but now they will have to wait until at least Sept. 14 to start up. Above, Revere High’s Lucas Barbosa runs for more yards. (Courtesy Photo/ Revere HS Football) high school level. At this time at least two major fall sports, football and soccer, are listed in a “Level 3” category, under Gov. Baker’s phased Reopening Plan. Level 3 sports, under the plan, are designated as “higher risk” for potential transmission of COVID-19 and, as stated at present, games would not be allowed at any point of Phase III and would be considered for Phase IV. Gov. Baker has previously announced that Massachusetts remains in Phase III and would not advance to Phase IV (designated “Return to Normal”) until there is a COVID-19 vaccine. For fall sports games to be played this season, a change in that present stance would have to be made and advanced. “It was a truly positive move, but there is still a lot of work Girls soccer teams are hoping to get out on the fields this fall. They all await word from state agencies. (Steve Freker Photo) to do and a lot of decisions to be made before we get to actually beginning a fall sports season,” said Malden Public Schools Director of Athletics Charlie Conefrey, who is a first-year member of the MIAA Board of Directors. Conefrey joined his colleagues in approving the Task Force’s recommendation. “Everyone wants to see the student-athletes out there participating and competing in athletics,” Conefrey said, “but the safety and health of all involved – students, coaches, staff and families – are the number one priority. It would have to be done safely; that is the bottom line.” Also in question is whether some fall sports, which are categorized in lower risk levels, such as golf and cross-country, might be allowed to be played, while others in the highest risk category, football and soccer particularly, might not be allowed. According to sources, a number of high school athletic directors would be hesitant to allow some sports to go forward and others not allowed. Additionally, there has been a recurrent “I heard that...” rumor the MIAA may be considering flip-flopping fall sports with spring sports seasons for the 2020-21 school year, but this proposition has not been offered or discussed at all at the MIAA level to date. Fall athletics were originally scheduled to begin for most sports on Aug. 24, with football starting Aug. 21. In addition to the recommendation to delay fall sports, the MIAA Board of Directors voted to accept two other proposals put forward by the Task Force. The Board agreed to follow any guidelines established by the state EEA and DESE agencies regarding fall athletics, and to meet again following the release of the guidance to make any further announcements on fall sports. Middlesex Sheriff’s Office announces virtual Youth Public Safety Academy C HELMSFORD – Sheriff Peter J. Koutoujian is inviting Middlesex County families to participate in a series of live, virtual Youth Public Safety Academy (YPSA) events beginning July 29 at 10 a.m. The virtual series will replace the annual in-person camp designed for youngsters ages eight to 12 that was cancelled this year due to COVID-19. The live session will include videos and presentations on important public safety topics. “YPSA is one of our most successful community programs,” said Koutoujian. “Each year, more than 1,000 youngsters participate alongside our staff and other public safety professionals from across Middlesex County. Not only do participants learn valuable safety lessons, but they build relationships with the public safety professionals who work hard to keep them safe. This virtual series will allow us to maintain and strengthen the important connections we strive to make with our county’s youngest residents.” Families wishing to register for the series can email YPSA@ sdm.state.ma.us to learn more.

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, July 24, 2020 Page 11 THE SPORTS WIRE: Malden Babe Ruth Baseball and Youth Baseball back on the diamonds By Steve Freker W hen the first pitch was thrown of the 2020 version of the Malden Babe Ruth League (BRL) baseball season recently, it was a long-awaited baby step toward some degree of normalcy for Malden’s youths. And even for those not so young. As a matter of fact, one of Malden BRL’s managers, who could be seen assembled on his usual perch, is north of his 80th birthday and is starting his eighth (Yes, that’s no typo – 8th!) decade of association with Malden baseball this summer. Of course, we are talking about Bob Rotondi, the local icon who has been going at it from a local baseball dugout since the 1950s (!) with the Little League Rifles. This season he is in his 58th season managing the Malden Babe Ruth Knights...and that’s consecutive years, folks! Malden BRL Field Director Deano Summers even said it a couple of weeks ago – “We are not having a season unless Bob [Rotondi] is involved.” In April at the height of the pandemic, it was not known for sure if there would any chance of any sports being played, let alone the Malden Babe Ruth or youth baseball seasons. They all persevered, however, and Malden BRL kicked off with four teams, named by colors rather than mascots, as no league team Beacon Hill Roll Call By Bob Katzen THE HOUSE AND SENATE: Beacon Hill Roll Call records local representatives' votes on roll calls from the week of July 1317. There were no roll calls in the House last week. CHANGES IN POLICING (S. 2800) Senate 30-7, approved and sent to the House a bill making major changes in the state’s policing system. The measure creates a Police Officer Standards and Accreditation Committee (POSAC)—an independent state entity composed of law enforcement professionals, community members and racial justice advocates—to standardize the certification, training and decertification of police officers. Other provisions ban chokeholds that are performed with the intent of or with the result of causing unconsciousness or death; ban other deadly uses of force except in cases of imminent harm; require the use of de-escalation tactics when feasible; create a duty to intervene for Malden Youth Baseball and the Malden Babe Ruth League both kicked off abbreviated seasons last week. Above, Kendrick Noelsaint is shown with his father, Rodens Noelsaint, at Bruce Field at Devir Park before the Stingrays game.(Steve Freker Photo) had the number of returnees to form an entire squad. “With the very late start, it was not easy to pull it together, and since we were unable to do any of our regular fundraising, like canning around the city, we are not able to do what we usually do, financially,” said Summers, who’s been involved in Malden Babe Ruth baseball as a manager (Flames) or administrator over 30 years himself. So far it’s been a little spotty out there on the diamonds at Rotondi Field at Howard Park and up at Pine Banks, where the teams play games, but it’s a welcome sight to have games going at all. “We are just grateful that working with the city and Malden Rec officials we officers who witness abuse of force; limit qualified immunity defense for officers whose conduct violates the law; expand and strengthen police training in de-escalation, racism and intervention tactics; and ban racial profiling, require racial data collection for all police stops and require reporting and analysis. “We have lots of wonderful police officers, and I am grateful for their service,” said Sen. Will Brownsberger (D-Belmont). “But we cannot turn a blind eye to the problems that do exist in the state which have been so recently documented by the United States Department of Justice. Nor should we pretend that those problems are the only problems in the state. This legislation is long overdue and I’m glad we are moving forward.” “I voted no because the bill that was brought before the Senate was hastily written and then pushed through to a vote in less than a week,” said Sen. Ryan Fattman (R-Sutton). “These actions result in a flawed product with multiple unintended consequences. For example, the language in this bill significantly dilutes and diminishes qualified immunity, not just for law enforcement officers, but for all municipal employees. Additionally, the bill would make it illegal for police and school administrations were able to do a shortened season and give the kids of Malden some baseball this summer,” said Summers. Not to mention keeping Bob Rotondi’s streak going! Malden Babe Ruth Baseball plays Monday and Tuesday nights at Rotondi Field (behind Malden Catholic) and Wednesday and Thursday nights at the Pine Banks Park grass field. All games start at 7:00 p.m. Malden Youth Baseball kicks off shortened season Malden Youth Baseball, featuring players of Little League ages, eight to 12, also started an abbreviated season last week. League director Felice D’Anna reports that there are two divisions running this summer, with two games per week for each team over five weeks, possibly six in total with playoffs. D’Anna said it is nice to see the smiles on the players out there on the baseball diamond after months of being confined primarily to their own homes. “The kids are excited and so are to communicate about gang and drug-related activity occurring in the school district, in turn making our schools and students less safe.” “This bill is a vital step towards a new vision of public safety: one that’s built on accountability, de-escalation, and care,” said Sen. Sonia Chang-Díaz (D-Boston). “It begins the long, necessary work of shifting power and resources to black communities and communities of color who have, for too long, faced criminalization and punishment instead of investment.” “In my opinion, we don’t know enough about how changing these standards of qualified immunity and collective bargaining will affect law enforcement, municipal employees, court systems, and labor unions in our state,” said Sen. John Velis (D-Westfield). “I believe we need subject-matter experts to help inform us and make recommendations, in order to be absolutely certain that we are meeting the goals of our legislation without any unintended consequences. That being said, I also believe that there is a lot of good work accomplished in this legislation, and I fully intend and hope to vote for a conference committee bill that accomplishes our goals and will be signed by the governor.” (A “Yes” vote is for the bill. A “No” the coaches and parents; it’s just great be out there,” said D’Anna, who helps coach a team in the Major Division himself. For Joe Levine, who doubles as the City of Malden Recreation program manager, its “Back to the Future” summer as he has taken the reins of the Stingrays as team manager in Malden Youth Baseball. For the past several decades, he has coached youth sports in girls’ sports, such as softball and basketball, serving one stint in the 2000s as Malden High head girls basketball coach. “I haven’t coached boys’ teams in about 30 years, so it’s a big change,” said Levine, who played on the Malden High baseball and basketball teams in the early 1970s. “So far, so good. It’s great that the kids get a chance to play some ball this summer, or any sports.” Some other Malden youth sports leagues are still “on hold” It remains to be seen if some other Malden youth sports, such as youth soccer and Pop Warner Football, will be able to get on the fields this year. As it stands now, football and soccer, at any level from youth to college, are restricted to drills and socially distanced group activities only, with no games allowed. These restrictions are part of Governor Baker’s Phase III plan for the reopening of sports, which places individuvote is against it.) Sen. Jason Lewis Yes STUDY QUALIFIED IMMUNITY (S. 2800) Senate 16-24, rejected an amendment striking a section of the bill which sets new limits on qualified immunity protections that currently shield police and other government officials from civil suits. The amendment would replace the section with a special commission to study the state’s current qualified immunity and report back to the Legislature within six months. Qualified immunity is a judicially-created legal doctrine established by the U.S. Supreme Court. Under current qualified immunity, police officers and other government officials can only be held accountable in civil suits for violating someone’s rights if a court has previously ruled that it was “clearly established” those precise actions were unconstitutional. Supporters of the study said they are not saying that qualified immunity should exist without some change nor that it should be abolished. They are simply saying that the Senate needs more information on the subject before taking any action. “We don’t have enough information,” said Sen. John Velis (D-Westal sports into various levels: Level One (lower risk), Level Two (moderate risk), Level Three (higher risk). The risk levels are associated with the level of potential transmission of the COVID-19 virus. Risk levels Sports are broken down into “Lower Risk,” “Moderate Risk” and “Higher Risk.” LEVEL ONE/Lower Risk: Activities that can be done with social distancing or individually. Examples include batting cages, tennis, pickleball, swimming, catch, golf, biking, surfing, horseback riding, sailing, fishing, hunting, motor sports, gymnastics, yoga and no-contact exercise classes. LEVEL TWO/Moderate Risk: Sports that involve occasional contact, but where protective equipment like masks can reduce the risk of spreading the virus. Examples include baseball, softball, crew/sailing (two to three people in a boat), track & field, cross-country, running clubs, team swimming, volleyball, dance class, fencing, field hockey and no-contact lacrosse. LEVEL THREE/Higher Risk: Recreation activities that involve close contact and, therefore, have a high risk of transmission. Examples include football, wrestling, soccer, rugby, basketball, lacrosse, ice hockey, competitive cheer, martial arts, crew/sailing (more than three people in a boat) and ultimate frisbee. field), the sponsor of the study amendment. “We need to do a deep-dive." “We need to hear from stakeholders," continued Velis. "Our job is not to watch CNN or Fox News to get informed, it’s our job to vote in the best interest of constituents.” Opponents of the study said the limits the bill places on qualified immunity are reasonable and fair and are a compromise between doing nothing and abolishing qualified immunity outright. Critics say that qualified immunity has shielded violent police officers from being personally responsible for their actions. Supporters of it say that limiting qualified immunity puts police officers at risk of frivolous lawsuits. Carol Rose of the American Civil Liberties Union of Massachusetts said setting some limits on qualified immunity is a start. “In order to make any laws about excessive use of force meaningful, it is absolutely essential to reform qualified immunity,” said Rose. “While the ACLU and many of our allies still wish to see qualified immunity eliminated, we commend the Senate for taking this critical action and urge the House to do the same.

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, July 24, 2020 Page 13 BHRC | FROM PAGE 11 Association is opposed to the limits placed on qualified immunity. “To be clear, qualified immunity is a bedrock protection extended to all public employees,” tweeted the BPPA. “Not just police officers. It does not protect bad cops. In fact, it only protects police officers who act reasonably and within the rules and regulations of their respective departments.” (A “Yes” vote is for the study. A “No” vote is against the study). Sen. Jason Lewis No BAN ALL CHOKEHOLDS (S. 2800) Senate 16-23, rejected an amendment that would completely ban police officers from using a chokehold under any circumstances. The amendment would replace an existing section of the bill that was a compromise reached by the working group that helped draft the measure. That compromise section allows chokeholds as long as they are not performed “with the intent of or with the result of causing unconsciousness or death.” The measure defines chokehold as “the use of a lateral vascular neck restraint, carotid restraint or other action that involves the placement of any part of law enforcement officer’s body on or around a person’s neck in a manner that limits the person’s breathing or blood flow with the intent of or with the result of causing unconsciousness or death.” “The … bill as it exists now contains a loophole,” said Sen. Jim Welch (D-West Springfield), the sponsor of the amendment. “It would allow police officers to continue to use chokeholds on people if they claim their intent was to do anything other than cut off the individual’s air supply or blood flow and they don't render the person unconscious or dead. This amendment would truly ban the use of chokeholds by law enforcement, an action necessary to guarantee all members of our community are protected against these dangerous and often deadly tactics.” Amendment opponents said the amendment goes too far and deviates from the chokehold compromise the working group achieved. The compromise prohibits chokeholds except for ones that are not performed with the intent of or with the result of causing unconsciousness or death. “This amendment would have created an overbroad definition of chokehold,” said Sen. Will Brownsberger (D-Belmont), a leading proponent of the bill “In the course of a pitched struggle, it is entirely possible that an officer would have to put their arm around someone’s neck. Let’s stick with the balance [compromise] we got and let’s vote against this amendment.” (A “Yes” vote is for a complete ban on chokeholds. A “No” vote is against a complete ban.) Sen. Jason Lewis No ALLOW CHOKEHOLDS (S. 2800) Senate 3-36, rejected an amendment that would allow the use of a chokehold if the officer reasonably believes that his or her life is “in immediate jeopardy of imminent death or serious bodily injury." “Police officers encounter dangerous situations daily,” said amendment sponsor Sen. Dean Tran (R-Leominster). “They should be allowed to use all necessary tools available to protect themselves and when their lives are at risk especially if the perpetrators are bigger and stronger. Not all police officers are 6 feet 2 inches and weigh 200 pounds. Many are smaller. Now when a female officer, who is let’s say 5 feet 2 inches and weighs 115 pounds, goes up against someone who is twice her stature, we want her and all of the officers to have all the necessary tools available to them for self-defense including the use of chokeholds.” “This amendment would have weakened the ban to a greater extent than necessary to assure officer safety,” said Sen. Brownsberger. “Let's stick with the balance we got and let’s vote against this amendment.” (A “Yes” vote is for the amendment. A “No” vote is against it.) Sen. Jason Lewis No $16.9 BILLION IN TRANSPORTATION PROJECTS (S. 2813) Senate 36-4, approved an estimated $16.9 billion bond bill authorizing spending on transportation projects and infrastructure. Provisions include $5.6 billion for federal highway system projects, $2 billion for the design, construction and repair of non-federally aided roadway and bridge projects and another $1.25 billion for construction, resurfacing and improvements of bridges and approaches. The package is a bond bill under which the funding would be borrowed by the state through the sale of bonds. A controversial section of the bill allows cities and towns and regions to raise local taxes to fund transportation projects outside of Proposition 2½, which limits property tax increases in cities and towns. The package also includes earmarks for hundreds of millions of dollars for hundreds of projects in legislators’ districts across the state—many of which will never be funded. The Baker administration is required to adhere to the state’s annual bond borrowing cap and ultimately decides which projects are affordable and actually get funded. Sometimes a legislator will immediately tout the inclusion of local projects in these types of bond bills, especially in an election year to show he or she “brought home the bacon.” But be warned that none of the projects in this package have yet been funded and most will end up never being funded because of the borrowing cap and the power of the governor’s office to pick which projects actually get the green light.

Born in Malden on February 22, 1926, he was the son of the late Francis and Winifred (Feeley) Curley. avvya yavvy eniioor iorn or vv niori io by Jim Miller Video Calling Solutions for Tech-Challenged Seniors Dear Savvy Senior, Can you recommend some simple devices that can help techchallenged seniors with video calls? My 80-year-old mother has been isolating herself for months now in fear of the coronavirus and I haven’t been able to see her face-to-face in quite a while. Concerned Daughter Dear Concerned, Video chatting is a great way to stay connected and keep tabs on an elder parent when you can’t be there, but it’s even more important now during this pandemic as many isolated seniors are also suff ering from chronic loneliness. To help connect you and your mom virtually, there are various products on the market that off er simple video calling for seniors who have limited ability or experience with technology. Here are four devices to consider. GrandPad: This is a top option for simple video calling, and much more. The GrandPad is an 8-inch tablet specifically designed for seniors, ages 75 and older. It comes with a stylus, a charging cradle and 4G LTE built-in so it works anywhere within the Consumer Cellular network – home Wi-Fi is not required. Ready to go right out of the box, GrandPad provides a simplifi ed menu of big icons and large text for only essential features, providing clutter-free, one-touch access to make and receive video calls, send voice emails, view photos and videos, listen to personalized music, check the weather, play games, browse the Internet and more. A GrandPad tablet costs $250 plus $40 monthly service fee and is sold through Consumer Cellular at GrandPad.net or call 888-545-1425. Amazon’s Echo Show: With its built-in camera and screen, the voice-command Echo Show also provides a simple way to have face-to-face chats with your mom, but she’ll need home Wi-Fi installed. Echo Shows, which come in three screen sizes – 5-inch ($90), 8-inch ($130) and 10-inch ($230), will let your mom make and receive video calls to those who have their own device, or who have the Alexa app installed on their smartphone or tablet. Once you set up her contacts, to make a call your mom could simply say, “Alexa, call my daughter” And when you call her, she would ask Alexa to answer the call (or ignore it). There’s also a feature called “drop-in” that would let you video call your mom’s device anytime without her having to answer it. Available at Amazon.com, the Echo Show also offers thousands of other features your mom would enjoy like voiceactivated access to news, weather, her favorite music and much more. If you decide to order an Echo Show device for mom, be sure your ask Amazon to mark it as a gift so it doesn’t get tied to your Amazon account. For instructions to help your mom set it up, or if she doesn’t have a smartphone, go to Amazon.com/gp/ help/customer/display.html, and type in “Help Loved Ones Set Up Their Echo Show Remotely” in the “fi nd more solutions” bar. ViewClix: This is a smart picture frame specifi cally designed for elderly seniors that lets family members make video calls, send photos and post virtual sticky notes with messages to their loved ones ViewClix from their smartphone, tablet or computer. Seniors, however, cannot initiate video calls from their ViewClix. Home Wi-Fi is also required. Available in two sizes – 10-inch for $199, and 15-inch for $299 – you can learn more about this product at ViewClix.com. Facebook Portal: If your mom is a Facebook user, a voicecommand Facebook portal (see portal.facebook.com) is another simple way to stay connected – home Wi-Fi is needed. Portals, which come in three sizes – the original 10-inch Portal ($179), the 8-inch Mini ($129) and the massive 15-anda-half-inch Portal Plus ($279) – are like Echo Shows, except they connect through Facebook. With a Portal, your mom can video call your smartphone or tablet (and vice versa) using Facebook Messenger or WhatsApp. Send your senior questions to: Savvy Senior, P.O.

Newberry; she later worked at John Volpe Construction Co., in Malden, and later Boston Sand and Gravel, in Boston. Sheila was very active in many volunteer programs at Immaculate Conception Church; she served her church as a Eucharistic Minister, and took Communion to many homebound people in the parish, at times to as many of 40 residents, who lived in senior housing. In 2009, Sheila was a recipient of the Cheverus Award, presented to her by Cardinal O'Malley, for her many hours of dedicated volunteering at Immaculate; she was also highly involved in the "Bread of Life," in Malden, as well as serving food to the needy at various churches in Malden. Sheila was also the recipient of a volunteer award from the Simon of Cyrene Society, of South Boston, headed by Sister Peggy Youngclaus SND, for her volunteering that helps the many handicapped in the Boston area and beyond. Harrington said, "Sheila was by far my best friend that I ever had, for 38 years, Sheila took me on a vacation to Ireland, where I met her mother in siblings, who welcomed me warmly, she was also very helpful to my late mother during her fi nal days of her illness. I could never repay all that she did for me. I know that I, as well as many will miss her immensely." Sheila Shea personifi ed love to everyone that she met, her life brought much comfort and joy and sharing too many that we should all strive to follow.

During these increasingly difficult financial times it is critical that we continue to make investments in projects such as roads, bridges, sidewalks, and other various restoration projects throughout the commonwealth.” Despite several attempts by Beacon Hill Roll Call, Sen. Joe Boncore (D-Winthrop), the Senate chair of the Transportation Committee, did not respond to requests to comment on the bill. “Section 5 in the bill sets up regional taxation districts where they could change the sales or property taxes by region,” said Sen. Ryan Fattman (R-Sutton). “This is a harmful Space for Lease 3 Large Rooms, each with Large Walk-in Storage Area. or Aerobics Studio. Located at Route 1 South at Walnut Street.

If their region decides to increase sales taxes, potential customers may look beyond these districts to shop for products. We should be working to give relief to our local small businesses during these challenging economic and public health times, not creating an extra barrier to success.” A House-Senate conference committee will attempt to hammer out a compromise version. (A “Yes” vote is for the bill. A “No” vote is against it.) Sen. Jason Lewis Yes ALLOW CITIES AND TOWNS TO RAISE TAXES FOR TRANSPORTATION PROJECTS (S. 2813) Senate 8-31, rejected a motion to strike from the bill a section that allows cities and towns and regions to raise local taxes to fund transportation projects outside of Proposition 2½, which limits property tax increases in cities and towns. “Legislating by local tax ballot iniThank you to all the first responders, healthcare workers, and all other essential workers who are working hard to keep our community safe and healthy. RIGHT BY YOU tiatives hampers our ability to serve our communities in a uniform, progressive, equitable way,” said Sen. Diane DiZoglio (D-Methuen), who led the charge to delete the section. “Some of the tax options put forward in this regional tax increase proposal, including the sales tax and property tax components, have nothing to do with transportation but are extremely regressive and would damage our Main Streets. Now, in the middle of a global pandemic, it is astounding to me that we think this is the time to be adding more of a financial burden to our local mom and pop shops.” “It’s clear that more and better public transit is needed across the state, and it is important to give local communities and regions the ability to raise funds when they identify particular needs,” said Sen. Cindy Creem (D-Newton). “Improving access to business districts that are not currently accessible by public transit is good for workers, small businesses and the overall economy. We are giving communities this option if the voters choose to use it.” “The attacks on Proposition 2½ under any guise are relentless, always intent on chipping away at city and town taxpayers’ protection,” said Chip Ford, Executive Director of Citizens for Limited Taxation, which created the law overwhelmingly approved by voters in 1980. “Section 5 of the Senate’s transportation bond bill created a new exclusion for the citizens’ referendum law. It especially did not belong secreted into a massive borrowing bill, slipped in at the 11th hour without public notice never mind hearings,” Ford added. “Just business as usual on Beacon Hill. Citizens beware—those are the people you elected to the Senate to allegedly represent your interests.” “This is about regional em419 Broadway, Everett, MA 02149 • 617-387-1110 771 Salem St, Lynnfield, MA 01940 • 781-776-4444 www.everettbank.com Member FDIC Member DIF powerment,” said Sen. Eric Lesser (D-Longmeadow). “This is about acknowledging that a lot of infrastructure development in our communities happens by region. It’s not all about top-down from Beacon Hill or top-down from the Statehouse, and it allows local communities to take some control and some autonomy over projects that are vital to them.” “The Senate is not letting the pandemic slow them down,” said Paul Craney, executive director of the Mass Fiscal Alliance. “They feel they are immune from the economic hurt around them. Creating new taxing authorities is not how we’re going to get our economy running again. This is just a backdoor attempt to try to circumvent the will of the voters and undermine Prop 2 ½. These senators should be thinking about ways to reduce spending, cut taxes, and help small businesses and workers get back on their feet. In the past four months, countless Massachusetts residents lost their jobs and cannot pay their mortgages. Today’s response by the Senate is tone deaf to the financial hurt being felt around the state.” (Please read carefully what a “Yes” and “No” vote means. A “Yes” vote is in favor of deleting the local tax option and therefore against the option. A “No” vote is to leave the local tax option in the bill and therefore is in favor of the option.) Sen. Jason Lewis No INSTALL CAMERAS ON SCHOOL BUSES (S. 2813) Senate 14-25, rejected an amendment that would allow any city or town to install and operate live digital video school bus violation detection monitoring systems to enforce violations against the owner of a motor vehicle whose vehicle failed to stop for a school bus when required to do so by law. School buses with the monitoring system installed would post signage indicating the use of that system. “At least 22 states have enacted stop-arm laws to catch and punish motorists who pass stopped school buses by allowing local jurisdictions to install cameras on the outside of the bus to record illegal passings,” said the amendment’s sponsor Sen. Diana DiZoglio (D-Methuen). “This is a commonsense mechanism that would help to increase driver awareness, prevent injuries and save lives, and the use of cameras for this specific purpose has widespread voter support in Massachusetts.” Opponents said that the transportation bill is focused on transportation projects and not general road safety. They said there are some safety provisions in the bill, but those provisions are focused on construction zones which make them related to the transportation bill. They noted the school bus camera idea was already considered by the Senate this past year and was rejected. (A “Yes” vote is for putting cameras on the buses. A “No” vote is against it.) Sen. Jason Lewis No 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.
