I could not get my hair set or colored. We could not have visitors and we could not go out. I could not get to church. I had to eat all my meals in my apartment, and I was not able to socialize with all the friends I have made here. It could have been a very lonely existence, but I made the most of it. The facility offered some socially distanced activities and entertainment. However, numbers were limited and I attended all of them that I was allowed. I was never one for playing games, but I learned to like them as they kept me in touch with my fellow residents. I attended Zonta meetings on Zoom, which was a learning exchildren all enjoyed it as they had their cousins to play with and the water was right there. The men did all the cooking as they loved to cook on the grill, and my sister-in-law and I let them with great joy! We shared all the expenses. There was a teapot and we each put money in it and when the money was gone, we filled it again. The cottage cost $42 a week. Those were the good old days! One day my sister-in-law and Virginia Ruane perience. I had never heard of it and I was just amazed at the power the internet has. I never missed a meeting. Then there was the television! Daytime television game shows kept me entertained, and I never missed an episode of “Judge Judy.” She let me know what is going on with young people around the country. Andy Griffiths and Gomer Pyle reruns kept me entertained in the evening. They bring back old memories and made me smile. I also thought about July being our vacation time. This is the time of the year when my husband and I would take the children on vacation in Holderness, New Hampshire. We shared a cottage with my brother and his wife and their six children. The I went to breakfast at the local diner. In conversation with the waitress, she told us that their summer was the month of July. August brought the cooler weather. We were so glad that our vacation was during the New Hampshire summer. I hope our children will make summer memories for my grandchildren as we did for them. Although COVID-19 is still with us, I am managing and still enjoying my life. Many people ask: to what do I attribute my longevity? Well, both my parents lived good, long lives but one never knows. I have been blest. My advice is to live the best life you can and make the most of every opportunity. Stay safe and wear that mask! —Virginia Ruane is a lifelong resident of Malden.

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, July 31, 2020 Page 3 Malden High School Graduation Day will be held “live and in person” Monday, Aug. 3 Proper health and safety guidelines under Phase 3 will be stringently followed By Steve Freker I f patience is indeed a virtue, then consider the Malden High School (MHS) Class of 2020 seniors and their families among the most virtuous folks on this planet. Their hopes of a traditional Graduation Day ceremony were initially dashed in May by the coronavirus shutdown. The May 31 date was crossed out early, as were the rest of their senior class checklist of oncein-a-lifetime memories. Senior Prom, Class Awards Night, National Honor Society Induction Ceremony and other traditional rites of passage, such as Senior Cookout and Maldonian Yearbook signing, were all erased due to the wrecking ball that COVID-10 became. Through the eff orts of many, however, a full two months plus three days after the original sendoff date, the over 400 MHS seniors will get their day in the sun, literally, this Monday, August 3. The evening’s ceremony begins at 6:00 p.m. at Macdonald Stadium (15 Pearl St. in Malden). Graduation Day 2.0 is coming on Monday Graduation Day “2.0” is coming and it will be as close to traditional as possible, according to MHS Principal Chris Mastrangelo, who will be presiding over his third such event. “If there was anything we wanted to save for our senior class in this year like no other, it was Graduation Day,” Mastrangelo said. “The Class of 2020 has been forced to deal with so many losses in the way of time-honored traditions in such a short amount of time,” the MHS Principal added. “We are so happy that we were able to work toGRADUATION DAY | SEE PAGE 8 AUTOTECH 1989 SINCE Is Your Vehicle Blowing Hot Air on Hot Days?!!

Page 4 THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, July 31, 2020 Malden Today, Tomorrow and Yesterday: bunny sighting in downtown Malden By Peter F. Levine R easons to be cheerful, Part 1: The recent reopening of Pleasant Street has been a long-held dream come true for a lot of Maldonians. That ugly “Beast That Ate Pleasant Street” (thanks, Freck!) appearing in every Maldonians’ nightmare over the many years replaced by the “Beast That Brought Pleasant Street Back to Life.” Hallelujah and praise the deity of your choice that we got some really good elected officials in office that think forward, not backward. The hustle. The bustle! Not since the glory days of Lady Grace, Gilchrist, Lerners, Tom McCann, Gloria’s Sub Shop, Cafarella’s, Hardwick’s, Moe’s Smoke Shop, Palace of Sweets, the Pleasant Street Bowling Alley, Headlines, Jordan Marsh, Jerry’s Army & Navy Store, Kotzen’s Furniture, the First National Grocery Store, Kennedy Bread & Egg, Woolworth’s, Boston Leader, Joe & Nemo’s, Signor Pizza and Richard’s Pub have we seen such a resurgence. We’re on the same path to dominate as we did in those fabled days, when giants like Barney Kahn walked the earth! Putting all other downtowns on the North Shore to shame! Just like Malden’s golden age of retail when the Spark’s and Kahn families were top dogs, which brings me to my point (is there a point, you may ask?). Yes, there is. This isn’t just another Malden Square praise fest! With the renaissance to the Square comes the return of wildlife. Yes, wildlife! We already have plenty of birds as keen observers will notice by the bird droppings on benches placed throughout the downtown. But a recent sighting of a cute rabbit family now residing along the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education building next door to Cornucopia is a very welcome sight. Musta been 10-15 little ones scurrying away recently as construction interrupted their daily forage for sustenance. I was able to snap a great picture of an adorable little eastern cottontail as he sat and enjoyed the sweet summer’s sunshine. The Animal ConBunny sighting in downtown Malden. (Courtesy Photo) trol superstar for the city of Malden, my pal and the man with a thousand inane quips, Kevin Alkins, says that Malden Square has been visited in the past not only by “foxes” (pun intended) but raccoons, possums, skunks and the occasional “turkey” (another pun intended). Did you hear about the time he took on a stray Royal stag red deer with 12 points in Malden Square single-handedly?! A story told around campfires throughout Malden to this very day. Truth be told, he has never seen as many little bunny rabbits as he has in 2020. Enjoy the Square coming back to life, fellow Maldonians. It was a long time coming! Reasons to be cheerful, Part 2: It wasn’t exactly Joe Frazier vs. George Foreman in “The Sunshine Showdown” in Jamaica, but it was the best Malden had in 1973. Well, maybe not all of Malden but certainly for us 16 year olds from Devir Park it was. We had won the very first YMCA Outreach Dept. Softball Championship that year. Ronny Cox’s favorites from Devir Park had strolled through the season undefeated going 11-0 in the process. The Devir Park 9 had shaggy hair, wore flared jeans with high pockets and tried not to drink the whole case before big games. We walked the walk that year. Think John Travolta in the opening sequence of “Saturday Night Fever.” But I digress...the final and most important game of the season took place in October. The Malden Police Dept threw the gauntlet down. An exhibition game between MPD and the unkempt ruffians from Devir would take place that October. We accepted. Two of Malden’s 1973 finest had taken away a whole case of Schlitz from us at Devir the previous week, and we wanted revenge! We surmised they drank it themselves. Before they hit Malden Street, we saw an empty Schlitz can fly out the window. It was billed as “The Game of the Season” in the Malden Sun-Times and was played at Pine Banks. The coverage in the Sun-Times was not exactly Bob Ryan quality but, in those days, as long as your name wasn’t in the police blotter and was spelled correctly, it was all good. According to written reports the affair was an “exciting see-sawing game that saw the lead change several times.” Starting off the action for the MPD were Johnny Mastrangelo and Butch Gennetti, who with a little help from their friends, Ptl. Langill and Dick Giggie, put the “Boys in Blue” in the lead at 4-0. Yes, that Butchie Gennetti!

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, July 31, 2020 Page 5 Dream becomes reality: Bridge Recovery Center ready to open doors in Malden Five-year crusade results in establishment of much-needed resource for those battling addiction By Steve Freker P aul Hammersley remembers the six-year-old question vividly, posed to him by the City of Malden’s chief executive. In 2014, Hammersley and a host of other dedicated locals had just launched a grassroots organization, Malden Overcoming Addiction (MOA). MOA was created and fueled by a goal to stop the stigma of addiction while assisting those afflicted with the disease and their families with resources they needed. During a discussion shortly afterward, Hammersley recalled a question asked of him by Mayor Gary Christenson, a stalwart supporter of MOA and its mission from its inception. “He [the Mayor] asked me, ‘What’s the end game [for MOA]?” Hammersley, now in his seventh year as chairman of MOA’s Board, was ready with his answer. “I want a building,” he told the Mayor. “I want a building where people can go get the help they deserve.” “We needed a place where people could go” Hammersley says he was not totally familiar with the term “recovery center” at the time – “I just knew we needed a place where people could go, a place where they would be able to talk to someone and have access to the help and resources they needed if As Gavin Foundation CEO John McGahan looks on, Malden Overcoming Addiction (MOA) Board Chairman Paul Hammersley signs an eight-year lease for the Bridge Recovery Center, which will operate at 239 Commercial St. in Malden. (Courtesy Photo/Malden Overcoming Addiction) they suff ered from addiction.” Fast-forward to today and Hammersley is thrilled to report that the dream has indeed become a reality. A longtime crusade that has experienced its fair share of twists and turns, defeats and victories has culminated in the fact that the Bridge Recovery Center will open its doors in Malden in early September. “We are looking at being able to provide services to people who need them just after Labor Day,” Hammersley told The Advocate, at the Center’s location at 239 Commercial St. The Bridge Recovery Center is modeled after others that have come before it, most notably in its core mission as a peer-to-peer recovery center.

MOA has partnered with members create and plan all events and activities. Monthly community meetings give members the opportunity to participate in the planning process. Membership is free to all, Hammersley said, and all those who participate at the center are encouraged “to give back to others by volunteering or sharing their experience, strength and hope with their peers.” Informational meeting held Tuesday night On Tuesday night, a virtual Zoom meeting was held by MOA in conjunction with the Gavin Foundation to offi cially introduce the Bridge Recovery Center of Malden to the public. Participating in the meeting were Hammersley, State Sen. Jason Lewis, D-Winchester, Malden and John McGahan, CEO of the Gavin Foundation, which operates the Gavin Foundation on a two-year agreement to assist in operations at the new Malden-based center to facilitate the establishment of an effective and well-run site. “We partnered with Gavin Foundation due to their proven track record and success in operating recovery centers,” Hammersley said. “In two years we intend to have Malden Overcoming Addiction running operations in full. We are very grateful we have Gavin Foundation on board.” Tuesday night McGahan gave a PowerPoint presentation in which he stressed what the recovery center would off er, as well what the recovery center is not. “It is not a detox center or rehab center and not a treatment program,” McGahan said. “We are not allowed to prescribe or dispense medication of any type. We are also not a day shelter … Our main purpose will be to provide referrals for services for those who need them the most, those battling addiction and their families.” DREAM | SEE PAGE 14 In House Dental Plan for $399 (Cleanings, X-Rays, Exams twice a year and 20% OFF Dental work) Schedule your FREE Consultations today WE'RE OPEN! 8 Norwood Street, Everett (617) 387-9810 STAY SAFE!

As of this morning, we have set up a page on our district website (www.maldenps.org/reopening) as a central location for updates and information around the reopening of school in the fall. We will continually update this during this reopening phase. There you will find: • The guidance documents provided to school districts by the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education thus far, including COVID-19 symptom response • The results of the initial parent/guardian survey on reopening • Zoom links to upcoming community forums There is a lot of work underway, and still a great amount of work to do over the next few weeks. We know that there are still likely to be more questions than answers, and will be depending on family and community input as we enter this next phase of planning. Our work to date includes: • Completing walk-throughs of all school buildings to determine needs for possible reopening under health and safety guidelines • A commitment to health and safety by adhering to the 6 feet as our social distancing threshold (as opposed to 3 suggested by DESE), and the inclusion of masks for our student population in grades 2-12 and strongly encouraging Pre K, K and 1 to wear masks, with the notable exception of people who will need accommodations because of sensory or medical issues that preclude them from being able to safely wear a mask. • We have been assessing and improving our ventilation and air circulation systems in the • Deborah Gesualdo, Malden Education Association President • Caitlin Filteau, Malden Food Service Department • Patricia Tramondozzi, Director of Nursing for the Malden Schools •Charlie Conefrey, Director of Athletics, Phys.

In order to do that we want our students in grades K-12 to have access to their own Chromebook if they don’t have one already. We hope to have a 1:1 (1 chromebook per student) in the district for the beginning of the school year.

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, July 31, 2020 Page 7 Tailored for Success partners with Encore Boston Harbor Special to Th e Advocate A ccording to the Department of Labor, the unemployment rate in February 2020 was 2.8% and then skyrocketed to 15.1% in April due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Thousands of individuals lost their jobs, became furloughed, or for those already unemployed, the competition increased. These individuals found themselves struggling to fi nd employment in an uncertain labor market while having to develop new skills to compete in the virtual “new normal.” To assist those individuals, Tailored for Success (TFS) launched a virtual career development program – Reimagine Your Career – to assist anyone who has been adversely aff ected by COVID-19. As part of the Reimagine Your Career program, TFS partnered with Encore Boston Harbor. According to Elizabeth Hart, Founder & Executive Director of Tailored for Success, Inc., “We are grateful for the support of Encore Boston Harbor and their employees who volunteered with us to assist individuals aff ected by job loss.” Encore Boston Harbor employees facilitated three career development workshops: Developing a Growth Mindset, Developing Your Professional Image and a Hospitality & Tourism Career Panel. The recording of these workshops can be found on the TFS YouTube Channel along with replays of previous TFS workshops. TFS staff and volunteers continue to be available to assist anyone who needs job search assistance or help to advance their career.

Page 8 THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, July 31, 2020 GRADUATION DAY | FROM PAGE 3 gether – school, city and public safety officials – and come up with a plan to hold a Graduation Day at the stadium that is done with the health and safety of our students, their families and our staff as the number one priority.” The much-anticipated event will be COVID-19-style, with strict limitations on attendance, spectator seating and appropriate physical distancing for the guest-of-honor graduates. Intently staring into a computer screen waiting for their name to be read in a videoconference ceremony was what many fellow graduates across the country had to settle for this year. Malden High School newest alumni-to-be will now have the opportunity to bask in the spotlight in one of the iconic moments of their young lives, right on their home turf at Macdonald Stadium. Strict limitations on guests and physical distancing Mastrangelo said strict limitations on student guests – just two per graduate – will ensure the proper physical distancing in the spectator stands. On the field itself, the approximately 440 members of the MHS Class of 2020 will be physically distanced as well, according to the most recent state and local health and safety guidelines. The podium for speakers has been reconfigured and limited in size to fit guidelines, though the Class Speakers will be delivering their traditional speeches, live and in person, a notion that had hung in the balance for most of this summer. The ceremony will follow a familiar pattern with the Class of 2020 entering the stadium, physically distanced, to the piped-in strains of Elgar’s “Pomp and Circumstance.” The “Star Spangled Banner” National Anthem will then be played. Principal Mastrangelo will then introduce the guests on stage before presenting the members of the MHS Class of 2020. Mayor Gary Christenson will then deliver the Greetings from the City of Malden, followed by remarks from Superintendent of Schools John Oteri on behalf of the Malden Public Schools. Class Speakers will then take to podium, as the third-ranked student in the Class of 2020, Class Orator ThaoMi Nguyen, will address the audience.

It also includes annually striking a property tax rate – approved by the City Council – which leads to the city’s largest source of municipal revenue, roughly half of Malden’s annual $180 million city budget. Cramer, a Reading resident who presently serves as Town Assessor for the town of Newbury, Mass., was one of three finalist candidates originally intended to be interviewed by the full Council in a rare summer meeting Wednesday night. Malden resident John Amirault, a 21-year employee of Century 21 Bond Realty in Malden, and Stoughton resident Feliquire Lucien, who also works in the real estate industry, were also scheduled Monday. As it turned out, Amirault was interviewed first for approximately 40 minutes. Lucien was apparently unavailable when his slot came up, and when he could not be reached, the Council resumed the process after a brief recess and interviewed Cramer, in a session lasting just over an hour. Cramer has been in Newbury on the municipal side for the past six years as Town Assessor. Cramer has a BS from Emmanuel College and a master’s in Public Administration from Suffolk University; he had also worked six years for the Massachusetts Department of Revenue (DOR), where he dealt directly with local city and town assessor departments. He also had worked before that for a private regional assessing company that did valuations for the to ensure that our graduates could be traditionally honored on a Graduation Day, for which I am sure they and families will always be grateful,” Mastrangelo said. “I’d like to thank Supt. Oteri, Mayor Christenson, the Mayor’s Chief of Staff Maria Luise, Board of Health Director Chris Webb, Malden Safety Coordinator Capt. Glenn Cronin, Police Chief Kevin Molis, Fire Chief Bill Sullivan, Stadium Supt. Joe Levine for all their assistance in planning and putting forth this special day. I’d also like to single out for thanks our MHS Staff, led by the many hours put in behind the scenes by 2020 Class Advisor Caitlin Quinn and from the MHS main office, Judie Sullivan and Barbara Scibelli, and our House Principals, Stephanie Sibley, Heather Northrop, Marta Cabral and Jayson Payeur, all of whose efforts will make this day happen.” Nathaniel Cramer New Municipal Assessor City of Leominster. Cramer also explained during his interview he had served three years on the Town of Stoneham Board of Appeals, which reviews requests for building and construction variances. Malden’s City Assessor also serves on this city’s Board of Appeals. Ward Seven Councillor Neal Anderson at one point in the interview asked, “Why Malden?” after Cramer has served years in Newbury. Cramer replied that there is an obvious big difference between the 3,200 assessed parcels in largely residential Newbury and the over 13,000 in Malden, pointing to the large amount of construction activity in this city at times and home sales. He said he is “ready for a new challenge.” Ward Six Councillor and Finance Committee Chairman David Camell made a motion, after the conclusion of the interviews, to appoint Cramer to the position, and it was seconded by Ward Two Councillor Paul Condon. The vote was unanimous, 11-0, to appoint Cramer, with an amendment by Councillor Anderson, pending salary negotiations conducted by City Council President Jadeane Sica and Malden Human Resources Director Anthony Chiccuarelli.

The inning proved critical as the scrappy “Cardiac Kids” from Devir Park, with that never-say-die attitude, edged their way ahead again with clutch hits by the Levine brothers and of those tested, there were 39 confirmed cases of the virus for a positivity rate of 2.40 percent during that time.

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, July 31, 2020 Page 11 Ari Cohen hurls 3-hit, 13K gem for Malden Bambinos in 3-1 win Monahan-Dasilva delivers game-winning hit for Bambinos in walk-off win over Lexington By Nick Toscani O ne did it with his bat and the other chipped in with his solid right arm, mixed with some mound savvy. With a combined effort, two Malden Bambinos veterans led the local squad to a pair of back-toback wins, pushing them to the top of the list in the Middlesex Summer League standings. Malden improved to 6-2 with the win, heading into another pair of back-to-back games: Sunday at home versus Lexington 1 at 7:30 p.m. and Monday on the road versus Bedford at Bedford High School at 5:45 p.m. On Sunday night at Maplewood Park, the Bambinos trailed the visiting Lexington 2 squad, 2-0, heading into their last at bat. The comeback rally ignited almost immediately when Liam Jordan and Zeke Bragg drew walks and Clifton Noelsaint singled in the first run to cut the lead to 2-1. Nick Longo then walked to load the bases, but the next two batters went down in order, strikeout and popup. With two outs and the bases loaded, up stepped Bambinos veteran and former two-sport Malden High captain Christian Monahan Dasilva. The lanky, 6-4 outfielder and pitcher looked at the first pitch, but did not miss when he swung at the second. Monahan Dasilva hit a bomb to right field, pulling it down the line way out of the reach of the Lexington right fielder. Two runs scored easily, and the walk-off hit sealed the 3-2 victory and pushed the Bambinos to 5-2 overall. Bambinos rookie righthander Shai Cohen had kept his team in the game with three innings of scoreless relief to pick up his second pitching win of the summer (2-0). Ari Cohen hurls a gem in 3-1 win over Watertown On Monday night in the scorching, 95-degree heat, Malden Bambinos right-hander Ari Cohen was cool as ice on the mound in a 3-1 win over Watertown/Belmont. Cohen went the distance, scattering three hits and striking out 13, a Bambinos career single-game high. Getting ahead of batters all night and using his defense, Cohen was strong early, late and in the middle. Leading by just two runs in the bottom of seventh, Cohen coolly got a first-pitch pop out to start the inning. Next up was Watertown/Belmont’s best hitter, who had launched a long double to the deepest part of the park in his previous at bat, driving in his team’s only run. This time Malden was ready. With Clifton Noelsaint playing as deep as possible, just a few steps in front of the centerfield fence, another long and deep missile was launched; this time Noelsaint was ready and he collected the second out. Cohen put an exclamation point on the night when he recorded his 13th and final strikeout of the night, a “caught looking” K to close out the evening. That win put Malden at 6-2 on the summer, all alone in first place in the league standings with just one more full week left in the regular season before playoffs.

The first 10 days of the school year will now be used to provide teachers and staff with time to redesign classroom lessons, to learn techniques to help students overcome trauma they may have experienced during the pandemic and to learn and acclimate to the many new safety and health protocols developed to keep students and school educators and staff safe from COVID-19. For Malden Public Schools (MPS) students, according to sources, this means the first day of classes would be Monday, Sept. 14. The school year, classes-wise, was originally set to begin on Wednesday, Sept. 2. In conjunction with the 10day delay, the deal includes a lifting of the mandate of 180 school days required for 202021 and allowing 170 days this academic year. In addition to the state-level news on the start of school date, locally, Malden Public School Supt. John Oteri on Wednesday released to the public a draft plan titled “Preliminary School Reopening Summary.” He has stressed this is a “draft plan,” with the possibility and probability it will be updated and include some changes before final implementation. According to the plan, the major premise is that most MPS students are planned to be part of a hybrid learning system which will feature alternating weeks of in-person and remote learning. Some of the district’s most vulnerable students will be able to have in-person or remote learning exclusively, according to their individual situations.

While the majority of students will participate in the hybrid model alternating between in-person learning and remote learning, families will also have the option to select a full-time virtual academy for their student. “The virtual academy will provide synchronous and asynchronous learning opportunities. Students with high needs – such as those who cannot engage in remote learning due to their disability-related needs, those requiring sub-separate programming, emergent English learners and /or students who are homeless – will be eligible for full-time in-person learning.” In the report, the Superintendent and his staff share the results of a citywide survey of parents and caregivers, which drew a tremendous response of nearly 4,000 entries. The majority of the respondents, in every instance asked, favored a hybrid form of learning for their children this year. Hybrid models include a mix of in-person and remote learning. Another telling response to the survey was that a full 98 percent of those who answered indicated they did have access to Wi-Fi internet in their homes, which is essential to remote learning. More than 96 percent also indicated they had a device in their homes which would allow them internet access. This past school year, as the pandemic forced a seismic shift nationwide to remote learning, Malden, like many other communities, went to great lengths to ensure educational equity by making sure that every MPS household had both Wi-Fi access and a device available to their student. Over 4,000 Chromebooks were distributed by the district; in the report, it is indicated that the goal and intent of MPS is to have over 6,000 Chromebooks in students’ hands, in a district of over 6,700 students. According to the report, MPS will offer full-time in-person learning for a small group of students requiring specialized supports. Students qualifying for in-person learning are described below: • Students already identified as “high needs” through the Individualized Education Planning (IEP) process on the IEP form entitled “Primary Disability/Level of Need-PL3.” Such students must meet at least two of these criteria: • Services provided outside of the general education classroom

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, July 31, 2020 Page 13 ~ Editorial ~ New recovery center in Malden will be a “Bridge” to better days for many I t is a brighter day in Malden today and what will become one of the most important additions to this city in its history will ensure a lot more to follow. This week it was officially announced to the citizens of Malden that the Bridge Recovery Center will open its doors to provide much-needed, invaluable services and resources to those who are among the most vulnerable in our society: those battling the disease of substance addiction and their families. A more than five-year crusade by founders and members of Malden Overcoming Addiction (MOA) to site a peer-to-peer recovery center in Malden has become a true “dream to reality” story, and the numbers of those who will directly benefit are virtually limitless. As with most complex and detailed projects, it certainly “took a village” for the Bridge Recovery Center to reach fruition. The seed was planted by MOA President and Board of DiMALDEN: TODAY | FROM PAGE 10 nights. It was his working-class upbringing that taught Ed the value of hard work and inspired him to spend his (whole) life seeking to provide the same opportunities he had, for every child, no matter their race, socioeconomic background or zip code. Last Sunday morning as I visited the old homestead rectors Chair Paul Hammersley, who has been talking about his dream since Day One of MOA's founding in 2014. Through endless hours, days, months and years of toil, including research, lobbying, information gathering and sharing, the dream of Hammersley, his late friend and fellow MOA founder Domenic DiSario and untold others has been realized. In addition to MOA, key elected officials have been integral in furthering the recovery center project to completion. Malden Mayor Gary Christenson, long a champion of local residents battling addiction, has been behind the project since the start, along with members of the Malden City Council. Malden Police Chief Kevin Molis is another constant voice for MOA's mission. Bridge Recovery Center would not exist had it not been for the driving forces behind it at the state level. This is a 100% state-funded recovery center (by the state Department of on Charles Street, I noticed Ed’s tour bus parked in front of the (former) Busby’s house on Charles Street.

Senator Lewis has called it “one of the most important” projects he has been involved with in public service. The Gavin Foundation has been taken on as a partner to run operations as the center gets on its feet, and the always-generous Bayrd Foundation has once again assisted a worthy project by granting funds to complete the initial renovations at the site. Located at 239 Commercial St., the Malden-based Bridge Recovery Center’s doors are expected to open sometime after Labor Day in early September and they will be open to all. No one will ever be turned away. Indeed a bright day for all, with many more to come. good fight some 45 years in the trenches.

T Malden awarded grant to complete ADA Self-Evaluation and Transition Plan hrough the advocacy of Malden’s Disability Commission, the city recently received a $40,000 grant from Governor Charlie Baker’s Community Compact Program to complete an American with Disabilities Act (ADA) Self-Evaluation and Transition Plan. The grant will allow the city to conduct a comprehensive review of all programs and services as well as an audit of municipal buildings, schools and recreational spaces for conformance with ADA standards. A Transition Plan to address any gaps or deficiencies will be included as part of the evaluation. Following a bid process, the city has retained the services of the UMass Donahue Institute, which has an extensive background in this area on both a municipal and state level. In addition to the awarded grant, the Malden Redevelopment Authority has agreed to contribute toward the cost. The Disability Commission will be working closely with the Institute and will be seeking the community’s input as part of the process. Board of Hearing decision supporting date of deed being the date of transfer fore, shall, subject to the limitations of section four, be sufficient, without any other act or ceremony, to convey land.” In Graves v. Hutchinson, T A Board of Hearing decision rendered on June 17, 2020, confirmed that the date that the deed was executed is to be considered the date of transfer and not the date the deed was actually recorded. MassHealth had denied benefits to the applicant based upon its view that since the deed was actually recorded within five years of submitting the application for MassHealth benefits, a disqualifying transfer occurred. Based upon the value of the transferred asset, the applicant would have a penalty period of 317 days. During that penalty period, no MassHealth benefits would be paid. The applicant transferred her home to an irrevocable trust and reserved a life estate. MassHealth valued the remainder interest transferred into the trust at $116,344. Chapter 183, Section 1 of the Massachusetts General Laws states that “A deed executed and delivered by the person, or by the attorney for the person, having authority there39 Mass. App. Ct. 634,659 N.E. 2nd 2012, 2016, “Delivery occurs where the grantor intends the deed to effect a present transfer of the property conveyed, and the grantee assents to the conveyance.” The hearing officer held that since more than five years had elapsed since the applicant had executed the deed, the transfer of the home into the trust was not a disqualifying transfer and not subject to the five year look back period. He went on to say that the applicant’s signature on the deed was evidence that she intended “the deed to affect a present transfer of the property conveyed.” Her son was the trustee of the Trust and by executing the trustee certificate as well as the trust instrument itself, acknowledged his assent to the conveyance. This is an important hearing as well as important case law to remember. Oftentimes, deeds are not recorded right after they are executed. Nonetheless, the transfer, as a matter of law, has occurred as of the date of execution of the deed. This is key when determining whether or not you have satisfied the five year look back period.

Paul Donato, D-Malden, Medford, have been at the forefront of the recovery center mission from day one, made perhaps the most telling statement of the evening avvya yavvy eniioor iorn or vv niori io by Jim Miller What Happens if You Die Without a Will? Dear Savvy Senior, What happens to a person’s possessions if they die without a will? I’m almost 60 years old and have never gotten around to making one, but the coronavirus crisis has made it a priority. Will-less Willie Dear Willie, The coronavirus crisis has lit a fi re under many Americans when it comes to getting their aff airs in older. Currently, fewer than half of American adults have prepared a will or living trust. If you die without a will, the state you reside in will determine what happens to your assets. Every state has intestacy laws in place that parcel out property and assets to a deceased person’s closest living relatives when there’s no will or trust in place. But these laws vary from state-to-state. Here is a general breakdown of what can happen to a person’s assets, depending on whom they leave behind. Married with children: When a married person with children dies without a will, all property, investments and fi nancial accounts that are “jointly owned” automatically goes to the surviving co-owner without going through probate, which is the legal process that distributes a deceased person’s assets. But for all other separately owned property or individual fi nancial accounts, the laws of most states award one-third to one-half to the surviving spouse, while the rest goes to the children. Married with no children or grandchildren: Some states award the entire estate to the surviving spouse, or everything up to a certain amount (for example the fi rst $100,000). But many other states award only one-third to one-half of the decedent’s separately owned assets to the surviving spouse, with the remainder generally going to the deceased person’s parents, or if the parents are dead, to brothers and sisters. Jointly owned property, investments, fi nancial accounts, or community property automatically goes to the surviving coowner. Single with children: All state laws provide that the entire estate goes to the children, in equal shares. If an adult child of the decedent has died, then that child’s children (the decedent’s grandchildren) split their parent’s share. Single with no children or grandchildren: In this situation, most state laws favor the deceased person’s parents. If both parents are deceased, many states divide the property among the brothers and sisters, or if they are not living, their children (your nieces and nephews). If there are none of them, it goes to the next of kin, and if there is no living family, the state takes it. Make a Will To ensure your assets go to those you want to receive them, you need to create a will or trust. If you have a simple estate and an uncomplicated family situation, there are do-it-yourself resources that can help you create all these documents for very little money. Some top-rated options include the Quicken WillMaker & Trust 2020 downloadable software (available at nolo.com) that costs $90 and works with Windows and Macs and is valid in every state except Louisiana; LegalZoom (legalzoom.com), which off ers basic wills for $89 or $99 if you’d like assistance from an independent attorney; and Trust & Will (trustandwill. com) which charges $89 for a basic will. If, however, you want or need assistance or if you have a complicated financial situation, blended family or have considerable assets, you should hire an attorney.

Jim Miller is a contributor to the NBC Today show and author of “The Savvy Senior” book. on Tuesday. “I want to commend this tremendous partnership between MOA and its leader Paul Hammersley and John McGahan and the Gavin Foundation and the tireless eff ort that have made Paul’s dream possible,” Sen. Lewis said. “It is not an overstatement to say the establishment of the Bridge Recovery Center in Malden is going to save lives … When I look back on my years in public service, I will regard my support to see this project to fruition as one of my proudest moments.” “It has taken so much work from so many people to make this happen,” said Hammersley, pointing to Sen. Lewis, Rep. Donato and Mayor Christenson and the members of the Malden City Council as continued, strong supporters. “I can’t say enough about how much eff ort Senator Lewis and Rep. Donato and Rep. [Steve] Ultrino have done to support this project at the state level and help us get the funding we needed. It is simply amazing, and we will always be so grateful.” Hammersley also recalled the years of eff ort and commitment his longtime friend, the late Domenic DiSario, contributed to the crusade that led to the realization of the Bridge Recovery Center. DiSario, one of the founding members of MOA, passed away this past year. “MOA would not be where it is today without all the hard work and dedication of Domenic, who left us way too soon this past year,” Hammersley said. “He [DiSario] was a dear friend and the recovery center was every bit as much his dream as it was mine.” The Bridge Recovery Center will operate in Malden, but at no cost to the city. The operations are entirely funded by a $400,000 renewal annual grant from the state Dept. of Public Health. It will have seven employees, a director, Keriann Caccavaro, an assistant director and seven recovery technicians. Hammersley noted that all employees, from the top down, will all be those who are in recovery, to go along with the stated mission of being a peer-to-peer recovery center.

Donato with that essential part of the process. Donato also attended the meeting where the lease-signing took place. “He [Donato] helped greatly to get all the parties together.” As for the present day, work is now underway with a buildout at the site to make sure it conforms with the state funding guidelines. That buildout was made possible by a generous, $72,000 grant from the Adelaide Bayrd Foundation. “Once again, we got some much-needed help from a generous benefactor; we thank the Bayrd Foundation Board and its chairman, Hank Kezer, for their generosity,” Hammersley said. Like a proud papa, Hammersley will be beaming when the doors fi nally swing open for the Bridge Recovery Center. “There will probably be some tears as well, but they will be happy tears. This has been a long time coming,” he said.

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, July 31, 2020 Page 15 Senators unanimously approve commission to revise state’s seal and motto O n July 28 the State Senate unanimously passed legislation to establish a commission to study and redesign the Massachusetts state seal and motto in order to make it more inclusive and historically representational. The legislation, Resolve providing for the creation of a special commission relative to the seal and motto of the Commonwealth, mandates the creation of a commission to study and revise or replace the state seal and motto. The legislation now moves to the House of Representatives for consideration. Many people, particularly members of Native American communities, find the state seal off ensive and unwittingly harmful, and others feel it perpetuates a misunderstanding of indigenous culture and history. The seal, which was adopted in 1898, prominently features a Native American fi gure. Historical records show that fi gure is a composite based on a portrait of a Native American chief from the Chippewa (Ojibwa) tribe – which is primarily located in the Midwest, not Massachusetts. Above his head is an arm holding a colonial-era broadsword believed to be the sword of Myles Standish, a Plymouth Colony military commander known in part for killing Native Americans. The Native American holds a downward pointed arrow that has been interpreted as signifying the pacifi cation of the native population. The state motto is, in Latin, Ense petit placidam sub libertate quietem (By the sword we seek peace, but peace only under liberty.) The state seal and motto are featured on the Massachusetts fl ag and other offi cial insignia. “COVID-19 and Black Lives Matter demonstrate that the social issues of Black, Indigenous, and People of Color are entwined as the collective challenge to social structures solidifies,” said North American Indian Center of Boston President Jean-Luc Pierite, who is a member of the Tunica-Biloxi Tribe of Louisiana. He added, “Today’s vote in the Massachusetts Senate affi rms that we can reconcile the identity of social systems while advocating and establishing needed change.” “This bill provides a chance to begin a conversation about our history and reimagine what a truly inclusive state seal and motto can look like,” said Senate President Karen Spilka. “The Senate will never waver on its commitment to making our Commonwealth welcoming for all, and so I am proud to see this proposal for a commission to study our seal and motto move forward. I would like to extend my gratitude to the many advocates who have continued to raise this issue and to Senators Lewis and Comerford for their work and collaboration on this issue.” “Our collective symbols of identity matter, and if they marginalize some of our fellow residents and perpetuate harmful stereotypes, they should be replaced,” said State Senator Jason Lewis, who is chairperson of the Legislature’s Joint Committee on Education and lead sponsor of the Resolve. “I want ~Birth Announcement~ T heresa and Dennis Ippolito of Malden are pleased to announce the birth of their granddaughter Rhece Mary Louise McNulty. She was born at 7:15 p.m. on July 24 weighing seven pounds 15 ounces. Her parents are William and Allyson McNulty of Norway, Maine. to thank former Representative Byron Rushing, former Executive Director of the Massachusetts Commission on Indian Aff airs John ‘Slow Turtle’ Peters, and many other Native advocates and allies for championing this legislation for many years.” Indigenous activists in Massachusetts have advocated for decades for a change to the Massachusetts seal, which is viewed by many as racist and overgeneralizing. The original version of this bill was fi led in 1985 by former State Representative Byron Rushing, a prominent Boston civil rights leader, and has been fi led in some form in every session of the Massachusetts Legislature since then. Under the bill, the commission will include: • Five members appointed by the Commission on Indian Aff airs who are descendants of tribes with a historical presence in the Commonwealth • Four members appointed by the governor who have relevant cultural and historical expertise COMMISSION | SEE PAGE 18 SCHOOLS | FROM PAGE 12 • Service providers are special education teachers and related service providers • Special education services constitute more than 75% of the student’s school day • Students who cannot engage in remote learning due to their disability-related needs • Students who primarily use aided and augmentative communication • Students who are homeless • Students in foster care or congregate care • Students whose parents/ caregivers report that they do not have access to a suitable learning space at home • Students who are dually identifi ed as English Learners, SEI Level I [Note: Students meeting the criteria above may opt-out to either the hybrid or remote learning models with parent/guardian approval.] According to the report, “Each in-person classroom will accommodate up to 14 students with desks facing forward six feet apart. If tables are utilized in a classroom, students are to sit at opposite ends and the tables are to be six feet apart from one another. At the elementary level, students will stay in “classroom bubbles” throughout the day, and teachers will rotate to the students for exploratory off erings. At the high school, transitions will be limited to the extent possible and supported with unidirectional travel and the staggering release of students into the hallway.” The school day length would be similar across the district, all grades, from 7:45 a.m.-2:20 p.m. in grades below high school, from Monday through Thursday. Below high school, there would be a halfday, 7:45-11:00 a.m. on Fridays. The entire draft plan is available for review on the Malden Public Schools website: www. maldenps.org. Community Listening sessions held: Final one is today In addition to the successful citywide survey, Supt. Oteri this week hosted citywide “Community Listening times” where parents from around the district could join a virtual Zoom meeting and express concerns, ask questions and give other feedback regarding the reentry to school this fall. Tuesday night’s session featured a lively and positive session where parents expressed some relief that there was so much information made available well in advance of the school start. A second session was held Thursday night and the third and fi nal Community Listening Session was planned for today, Friday, July 31, from noon-1:30 p.m. Information on the links to participate is at www.maldenps.org. ~ Home of the Week ~ SAUGUS...Lovely expanded Cape Cod style home offers 8 rms., 5 bdrms., 1.5 baths, 5 yr. old trex front steps & porch, enter into open concept dining rm./family rm. and eat-in kit. w/ sliders to deck overlooking oversize fabulous yrd., 2 bdrms., full bath & living rm. round out the 1st flr.

B Massachusetts Teachers Association endorses Markey for U.S. Senate 110,000 teachers, faculty, professional staff, and education support professionals stand with Ed Markey OSTON – The Massachusetts Teachers Association (MTA) endorsed Ed Markey for reelection to the United States Senate. The major labor support comes at a key moment in the primary race and builds on Senator Ed Markey’s overwhelming existing support among unions, including the American Federation of Teachers, the American Postal Workers Union of Massachusetts, Postal Workers Local #4553, UNITE Local 26, AFSCME, SEIU 888, SEIU 32BJ, CWA 1400, AFGE, National Association of Social Workers – PACE, and the Association of Flight Attendants-CWA. Founded in 1845, MTA represents 110,000 members in close to 400 local associations throughout Massachusetts. It is dedicated to securing a better workplace for education employees and advocates for quality public education that will help students flourish. “Senator Ed Markey is a true champion of public education and working families,” said MTA President Merrie Najimy. “He is doing everything possible to win the resources our public schools and colleges need to help create a stronger and more just Commonwealth – and we know that he will never let up. Now more than ever, we must elect leaders who will stand with us. Ed Markey has an incredible record of advocating for policies that help students, educators and our communities, and Massachusetts needs him in the U.S. Senate to keep up that fight.” Space for Lease 3 Large Rooms, each with Large Walk-in Storage Area. or Aerobics Studio.

Call Michelle at: 781-233-9507 “Senator Ed Markey has been a champion for Massachusetts’s students and public schools, which is why we are proud to endorse his re-election campaign,” said National Education Association President Lily Eskelsen García. “He understands just how important it is to ensure all Bay State students have access to a quality public school education no matter what ZIP-code they are from or the color of their skin. Markey is committed to paying educators like the professionals they are so communities are able to attract and retain the quality educators that our students deserve. He has deep respect for educators and knows that the teachers and education support professionals who have dedicated their lives to helping other people’s children learn must have a seat at the table when making education policy. And since students will need more support than ever this fall, as COVID continues ravaging communities across America, Markey is helping lead the efforts to pass the HEROES Act to prevent educator layoffs and get students back in the classroom safely.” Senator Markey has consistently supported public schools in Massachusetts and across the nation. He created the E-Rate program as part of the 1996 Telecommunications Act to ensure that schools and libraries across the country are able to provide internet access that is critical to student success. “School employees and educators have always been heroes. In the midst of a pandemic, our teachers have gone above and beyond to ensure that students are able to achieve academic success at home,” said Senator Markey. “Educators are essential workers. It is our educators who are molding the next generation of leaders for our state, our city, our nation, and we must provide them with the health care, wages, and protections they deserve. I’m proud to have the Massachusetts Teachers Association’s support, and will continue to fight for them, for public education, and for all union workers in the United States Senate.” The son of a union leader, Senator Markey has also stood with workers demanding basic rights. In June he spoke at a MTA car rally in Malden to call for additional federal funding for Massachusetts and our schools. Senator Markey has served in the United States Senate since winning the special election in 2013 and has amassed a deep record on environmental, climate, gun safety, and consumer protection issues. He coauthored the Green New Deal, and his leadership has led to legislation to address the humanitarian crisis on the southern border, protect LGBTQI rights and ensure that Donald Trump cannot launch a nuclear first strike without Congressional approval. Raised in Malden, Senator Markey has always stood up for the priorities of Massachusetts. ~ LEGAL NOTICE ~ COMMONWEALTH OF MASSACHUSETTS THE TRIAL COURT PROBATE AND FAMILY COURT Middlesex Divison Docket No. MI20P1967EA Estate of: Annmarie Cunha Date of Death: March 26, 2019 INFORMAL PROBATE PUBLICATION NOTICE To all persons interested in the above captioned estate, by Petition of Petitioner Thomas W.
