Malden HAVE A SAFE & HAPPY LABOR DAY WEEKEND! ADVOCATE Vol. 28, No. 35 -FREEwww.advocatenews.net Published Every Friday 617-387-2200 Friday, August 30 , 2019 Malden rallies for reforms to end racism in city schools C By Barbara Taormina alls for racial equity in the city’s school district continued this week with a rally early Monday morning in front of Malden High. Malden Community Organizing for Racial Equity (MaldenCORE), with support from the NAACP Mystic Valley Branch, planned the rally to coincide with a meeting of teachers and administrators who were at the high school at 7 a.m. for their first meeting of the new school year. MaldenCORE members and others who spoke at the rally focused on a slate of reforms aimed at ending systemic racism within city schools and providing support to students and teachers of color. MaldenCORE is demanding that the district hire more teachers and staff of color to reflect the diversity of the city’s students. The group has continually highlighted the disparity between the district’s teachers, nearly 90 percent of whom are white, and the students, 67 percent of whom are Asian, African American or Hispanic. “Teachers are meant to be role models, but I never had ger or a click of a mouse, but it takes time,” said Councillor-at-Large Stephen Winslow, who spoke at Monday’s rally. Winslow said the problem is that the pool of educators of color is smaller than the demand for them. “We need to inspire more people of color to go into education,” he said, inviting those at the rally to think about what they could do to help. MaldenCORE is also calling A crowd of students, teachers and members of the community joined MaldenCORE outside of Malden High on Monday for a rally – calling for reforms to end systemic racism and establish racial equity in Malden schools.

Over and over, students have described going through the Malden school system without ever once having a class with a Black, Asian or Hispanic teacher. Many said their education in city schools would have been dramatically different if there had been teachers who understood them on a linguistic, cultural and social level. 5th Annual Fairy House Festival at Pine Banks Park a great success Last year, Lorna Closeil, a member of Malden High’s Class of 2010, attended a school committee meeting and shared her story about how her life was changed by her relationship with Jennifer Hedrington, a Haitian American math teacher at Salemwood School. Closeil said she was struggling academically and constantly in and out of in-house suspension, but connecting with a teacher from a similar background who understood her experiences helped her change track. “I was able to shift my self-concept as a troubled student to one that reaffirmed my ability to be a leader in and out of the classroom,” she said, adding that diversity without inclusion is not only ineffective, it’s damaging. MaldenCORE members acknowledged school administrators have made some progress in diversifying the district’s staff, particularly among the district’s administrators, but they want more teachers of color to be recruited, hired and retained. “We want to solve this problem with a swipe of our finJAG welcomes two more businesses to downtown Malden By Barbara Taormina T he Jefferson Apartment Group (JAG) has officially FAIRIES’ TALE: Helena Ribado (left) and Charlie Catherine Murphy are shown enjoying the 5th Annual Fairy House Festival at Pine Banks Park.

Councillor-at-Large Stephen Winslow urged those at this week’s rally to consider how they can help increase the number of educators of color who are in high demand not only in Malden, but in school districts throughout the country. MaldenCORE is calling for more teachers of color to reflect the diversity of the city’s student population. A study from John Hopkins University found that African-American students who have one black teacher in elementary school are much more likely to graduate from high school and continue on to college. SCHOOLS | FROM PAGE 1 the n-word. Students said that teachers seemed unprepared or at a loss on how to handle these incidents of racism, so they were often ignored. In addition to calling for anti-racism training, MaldenCORE is asking the district to appoint a person who will hear complaints involving racism and discrimination from students and teachers and ensure that policies against racism are followed. MaldenCORE has also called for the district’s curriculum to be expanded to include classes that focus on history and culture that reflects the ethnic and racial diversity of the students. MaldenCORE Cofounder Erga Pierrette leads the organization’s rally for racial equity in city schools.

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, August 30, 2019 Page 3 Commission delays demolition of American Legion Post By Barbara Taormina P lans to build a co-housing development at 368 Pleasant St. will be delayed for up to 12 months so that the owners and the city can consider alternatives to demolishing the existing building. Bay State Commons, a group of individuals and families, bought the former American Legion Post three years ago with the intent of creating a co-housing project with 30 individual condos built around shared interior and exterior space. But the plan calls for razing the existing building, which the city’s Historical Commission has determined is historically, socially and architecturally significant and should be preserved for the benefit of the public. The city’s Demolition Delay Ordinance gives the Historical Commission the authority to put a demolition permit on hold for up to a year while owners consider alternatives to preserve or sell the property. This week, the commission voted unanimously to start the 12-month delay clock ticking. “I must say I think it’s our duty to maintain this ordinance,” said Commission Member John Tramondozzi. “This building should be preserved as much as possible.” Commission members agreed that the building checked all the boxes of a “preferably preserved” building. Built in 1864 as one of several large suburban estates that lined Pleasant Street, the building’s age, its location in an area with other historical buildings, its place in local history and its use first as a single-family home and later as an American Legion Post make it historically, culturally and socially significant. Commission members also agreed that the building has exterior and interior architectural features that also make it a candidate for preservation. At a public hearing on the demolition permit, members of Bay State Commons, architects designing the new co-housing building and members of the community who support the project acknowledged that the building is historically significant because of its past. However, they stressed that the building’s interior is not viable for the co-housing project and many of the building’s 19th-centuy details and characteristics have been lost to time, alterations and damage making it a poor candidate for preservation. But local historian Frank Russell said the building’s gables, floor-length windows and entryway granite steps are among the building’s original features that still exist. “If the vinyl siding were to be removed, the exterior restored, the brackets put back under the eaves, from my conversations with the state historical commission, this building would be eligible for listing on the National Register of Historic Places as having local significance,” Russell told the Commission. “There is enough here that can be preserved and brought back,” he added. Commission members agreed that they are primarily concerned with preserving the historical characteristics of the exterior of the building. Tramondozzi said the Commission has worked with other property owners to restore original characteristics of the facades of older buildings. “We want to work with people and preserve as much as we can,” he said. “It’s a matter of money, and I realize that but, and I hate to say it, but money is not our consideration. We want to preserve the building.” Commission Chair Barbara Tolstrup stressed that the demolition delay is not a 12-month waiting period that will eventually end with demolition of the building. She, and other commission members, said repeatedly that they want to work with Bay State Commons to find a way that the building’s original exterior can still be seen in the co-housing project’s design.

Vacation Memories By Virginia Ruane I am back writing again! I did not go anyplace special, but took off June, July and August. Just what I needed! Now, it is over, and I’m revived. The time just flew by. I did not take my usual summer vacation to Squam Lake in New Hampshire. Do you remember the movie “On Golden Pond”? Squam Lake is where this movie was filmed. That’s where my family spent two weeks every year. We rented a cottage right on the lake. We shared it with my brother and his wife and six children. Along with the five of us, it seems like a lot of people in one cottage, but it was fine. Our families shared this vacation time together for over 40 years. Sixty years ago, when we first rented, we paid $42 a week. This year my nephew rented the same cottage, and the rent was $1,800 for one week. The water and the peacefulness are just as I remembered it. Of course there were some changes made – like a new second bathroom with a shower, running well water and a modern kitchen. All these things made a big difference. Even without the improvements, we had a wonderful time with great memories. Do you ever have a memory of a trip you wanted to take some time in your life and you never went there? Something in your life always came up, and you just could not get there. Well I did. I always wanted to go Hawaii and never got there, and now it is too late. I’m too old (94). During World War II, my husband was in the Navy and stationed in Maui, Hawaii. It was right after Pearl Harbor. Thank the good Lord I did not know him then as I would have been worried sick. He loved Hawaii: the weather, the music, everything. He talked about it to me all the time. But I never got to see these wonders. After we were married, our life was too busy to think of trips. The children always needed something or the house needed work. Other than Squam Lake we did get to take some vacations together. We went to Jamaica, Ireland, Bermuda and Barbados, but we never quite made that trip to Hawaii. My advice to you is: Don’t wait! Find the time to take that trip you have always dreamed about. I do remember the days of Squam Lake, and the happy times we all had. I am grateful for those memories. But I still never made that trip to Hawaii. Well, my vacation is over and I am back at the computer. I am glad to share my experiences with you. Please enjoy the remainder of the summer and look forward to the fall, cool, crisp days and colorful leaves. Virginia Ruane is a lifelong Malden resident. Please send suggestions and comments to virginiaruane@aol.com.

This was not an effort to replace the official City seal, which remains unchanged. The thinking was that with so much happening in Malden, including the complete transformation of the downtown, which will soon include a new City Hall, Malden is on the move! Although Malden’s history and foundation are crucial aspects of who we are, a new logo offers a fresh vibrant new look. The image will be used on a variety of printed materials as well as online and will help market new initiatives within the city government. DeMaria worked with the Mayor’s Office through Communications Director Ron Cochran to reach out to all of Malden’s high schools and engage them in the project. They later held several meetings with students from Malden Catholic High School and Malden High School as well as members of the Malden Historical Commission; then for several months the participants identified what Malden means to them and how they view our community. Simultaneously, a local resident graphic designer/artist, Busha Husak, was commissioned to capture their ideas to help form the new logo. The City of Malden now invites residents to participate in the voting process to select one of the four logo designs by visiting https:// www.cityofmalden.org/665/ Malden-Logo-Project. A description of each design is provided. The voting period will close on September 16 at noon. Shortly thereafter the results will be announced.

THE HOUSE AND SENATE: There were no roll calls in the House and Senate last week. This week, Beacon Hill Roll Call reports on how often local senators voted with their party leadership. The votes of 33 Democratic senators were compared to Senate Majority Leader Cindy Creem (D-Newton). The votes of five Republicans were compared with those of GOP Senate Minority Leader Bruce Tarr (R-Gloucester). Beacon Hill Roll Call uses 87 votes from the 2019 Senate session as the basis for this report. This includes all roll calls that were not on local issues. Eighteen of the 33 Democratic senators (54 percent) voted with Creem 100 percent of the time. The Democratic senator who voted the lowest percentage of times with Creem was Sen. Michael Moore (D-Millbury) who voted with her 94.2 percent of the time. None of the five GOP members voted with Tarr 100 percent of the time. Two of them came close. Sens. Vinny deMacedo (R-Plymouth) and Donald Humason (R-Westfield) both voted with Tarr on all but one of the roll calls. The GOP senator who voted with Tarr the lowest percentage of times is Sen. Patrick O’Connor (R-Weymouth) who voted with him 90.8 percent of the time. PERCENTAGE OF TIMES SENATORS VOTED WITH THEIR PARTY’S LEADERSHIP IN 2019 The percentage next to the senator’ name represents the percentage of times the senator supported his or her party’s leadership. ses represents the number of times the senator opposed his or her party’s leadership. Some senators voted on all 87 roll call votes. Others missed one or more roll call. The percentage for each senator is calculated based on the number of roll calls on which he or she voted and does not count the roll calls for which he or she was absent. Sen. Jason Lewis 100 percent (0) HOW LONG WAS LAST WEEK'S SESSION? Beacon Hill Roll Call tracks the length of time that the House and Senate were in session each week. Many legislators say that legislative sessions are only one aspect of the Legislature's job and that a lot of important work is done outside of the House and Senate chambers. They note that their jobs also involve committee work, research, constituent work and other matters that are important to their districts. Critics say that the Legislature does not meet regularly or long enough to debate and vote in public view on the thousands of pieces of legislation that have been filed. They note that the infrequency and brief length of sessions are misguided and lead to irresponsible late-night sessions and a mad rush to act on dozens of bills in the days immediately preceding the end of an annual session. During the week of August 19-23, the House met for a total of 17 minutes while the Senate met for a total of 17 minutes. Mon. Aug. 19 House 11:05 a.m. to 11:15 a.m. Senate 11:11 a.m. to 11:20 a.m. Tues. Aug. 20 No House session Wed. Aug. 21 No House session Fri. Aug. 23.

Dear Savvy Senior, I own two dogs and a cat that I would do almost anything for, but expensive veterinary bills put a strain on my budget. Is pet insurance a good idea? Dear Pet Owner, If you’re the kind of pet owner who would do anything for their furry family, including spending thousands of dollars on medical care, pet insurance definitely is an option to consider. Here’s what you should know. Rising Vet Costs The cost of owning a pet has gone up in recent years. New technologies now make it possible for pets to undergo sophisticated medical treatments for many life-threatening diseases, just like humans. But these treatments don’t come cheap. That’s why pet insurance has gotten more popular in recent years. More than 2 million pets are currently insured in the U.S. and Canada, according to the North American Pet Health Insurance Association. How Pet Plans Works Pet insurance is actually very similar to human health insurance. Pet policies typically come with premiums, deductibles, co-payments and caps that limit how much will be paid out annually. But unlike people coverage, you usually have to pay the vet bills in full and wait for reimbursement from the insurer. Pet policies vary greatly from basic plans that cover only accidents and illness, to comprehensive policies that provide complete nose-to-tail protection including annual checkups and vaccinations, spaying/ neutering and death benefits. You should also be aware that pet policies typically don’t cover pre-existing conditions, and premiums are generally lower when your pet is young and healthy. Costs for pet insurance will also vary by insurer and policy, but premiums typically depend on factors like the cost of veterinary care where you live and the age and breed of the pet. The average annual premium for basic accident and illness coverage was $516 per pet in 2017, while the average claim paid was $278, according to the pet health insurance association. Shopping Tips Major pet policy providers include the ASPCA, Embrace, Healthy Paws, Nationwide, PetFirst, Petplan and Trupanion. To help you shop and compare coverage and costs from pet insurers, go to PetInsuranceReview.com. If you’re still working, one way to pay lower premiums, and possibly get broader coverage, is to buy pet insurance through your employer, if available. Eleven percent of employers in the U.S. offer pet health insurance benefits, according to the Society for Human Resource Management, and these plans are usually discounted. Alternative Option Many animal advocates think most pet owners are better off forgoing pet insurance and instead putting the money you would have spent on premiums into a dedicated savings account to pay for vet care as needed. Depending on the policy, pet insurance can cost $1,500 to $6,000 over the life of an average pet, and most pet owners will never spend that much for treatment. Ways to Save If you can’t afford pet insurance or choose not to buy it, there are other ways you can save. For example, many local animal shelters offer free or low-cost spaying and neutering programs and vaccinations, and some shelters work with local vets who are willing to provide care at reduced prices for low-income and senior pet owners. There are also a number of organizations that provide financial assistance to pet owners in need. To locate these programs, visit HumaneSociety.org/PetFinancialAid. To save on pet medications, get a prescription from your vet (ask for generic is possible) so you can shop for the best price. Medicine purchased at the vet’s office is usually more expensive than you can get from a regular pharmacy or online. Most pharmacies fill prescriptions for pets inexpensively, and many pharmacies offer pet discount savings programs too. You can also save by shopping online at a verified pharmacy like 1800PetMeds.com, DrsFosterSmith.com and PetCareRX.com. Send your senior questions to: Savvy Senior, P.O. Box 5443, Norman, OK 73070, or visit SavvySenior.org. Jim Miller is a contributor to the NBC Today show and author of “The Savvy Senior” book. Older Pet Owner

Roy struggled with addiction for most of his adult life, but was sober for some of the most important times in our life and for that A resident of Holyoke and formerly of Malden and Stoneham, passed away peacefully at Day Brook Village Center Nursing on Wednesday, August 21, 2019, at age 98. Mary was born in Malden on April 30, 1921, one of seven children of the late John and Beatrice (Prowse) Donovan. Raised in Malden, Mary graduated from Malden High School, Class of 1939, and worked as a bookkeeper in a local dental office for many years. In February of 1942, she was married to William T. Mingo at St. Joseph's Church in Malden. As the wife of a B24 bomber pilot during WWII, Mary traveled the country at the beginning of their marriage, before returning to Malden to raise three children. Mary was a strong, selfless woman who raised three young children after the loss of her husband at an early age. A dedicated and caring mother, Mary always welcomed family and friends with an open heart and a warm meal to her house for the holidays and family events. Her home in Malden served as a gathering place for generations of family and she was always baking her famous apple pie, chocolate chip cookies and hermit cookies for all. Later in life, as her mother grew older, she served as caretaker and supportive daughter with the help of extended family. A Gold Star wife, Mary carried her love for Bill in her heart forever. In her free time, she enjoyed playing cards, especially bridge, canasta or just "go fish" with her grandchildren. With a love for words, she was an avid reader, and enjoyed playing scrabble with her family. She also enjoyed traveling to Florida, going on bus trips with family, and going out to eat. Mary will be greatly missed, but her strong will, and determination that supported and shaped the lives of her children and grandchildren will carry on as her legacy. The Mingo family wishes to extend their warm thanks and appreciation to the staff of Day Brook Village (formerly Loomis House) for their care and concern over the last several years. Mary was the beloved wife of the late William T. Mingo with whom she shared 23 years of marriage. Devoted mother of William T. Mingo and his wife Paula of Brooklyn, NY, Kathleen M.
