THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, September 3, 2021 Page 3 Mystic Valley Regional Charter School A History of Partnering with the City of Malden Howard Park Summer 2010 The City of Malden, through the Malden Redevelopment Authority, sought proposals (RFP) from entities interested in entering long-term lease arrangements for the use of South Broadway Park. Two entities responded to the RFP with serious proposals. One was MVRCS, the other was Malden Catholic (MC) High School. Fall 2010 In September of 2010, the city solicited new designs for Howard Park. In November of 2010, The city published a preliminary schematic design and cost estimate for South Broadway Park. Not including soft costs, the plan was estimated to be $6.4 million. Soft costs would make the project exceed $7 million. Spring 2011 In April of 2011, the Malden City Council voted to authorize a bond of $12.45 million for recreational and open space improvements in the city, the largest of its kind in the city’s history. In that plan, $5.5 million was earmarked for the construction of a new South Broadway Park. The $5.5 million was not the full amount needed to complete construction on what would become Howard Park. The mayor was authorized, by a City Council vote of 10 to 0, to negotiate with MC and MVRCS, to close the $2 millon funding gap. Summer 2015 Howard Park opens to the public. 25 years g Summer 2013 MVRCS signed a 25-year lease agreement with City of Malden to pay a rental fee of $23,300 twice per year (fall and spring high school athletics season), for a total of $46,600 annually. an amount equal to nearly $1.2 million over the life of the agreement.. The agreement permitted MVRCS exclusive use of Howard Park for two hours per day, commencing upon the park’s completion in 2015. Key Facts u Before the agreement, both MVRCS and MC occupied the park during approximately the same hours for more than a decade, paying the city less than $150 per year for a permit. u With the reconstruction of Howard Park came the addition of four tennis courts, which did not previously exist. u Perhaps the greatest improvement to the park, because of the additional payments the city negotiated, was the addition of a turf field and field lighting. The lights enabled nighttime play, which was never the case in the past. Together, the lighting and turf field surface increased playing time by more than 50 percent. u This contribution, which largely benefitted the Maplewood neighborhood compensates for any other park space that MVRCS may periodically use today, including Trafton Park in Maplewood Square. To put this in perspective, the cost of renting a turf field for a full season in the City of Malden, according to the rates published in 2018, is $100. Mystic Valley is paying over 200 times that rate for its seasonal permit. Mystic Valley entered into this agreement to lock in a long-term benefit for the school and its students. However, it is clear that this collaboration benefitted—and will continue to benefit—the City of Malden for many years to come. We look forward to a time when we can continue to collaborate with the City of Malden in a mutually-beneficial manner

Most of the 2020-21 school year remained in a remote learning mode for majority of students. About half of the Malden Public Schools students returned for in-person learning in the spring of 2021, while the others remained in a hybrid learning model for the remainder of the school year. On Wednesday, Malden Mayor Gary Christenson and fi rstyear Superintendent Dr. Ligia Noriega-Murphy visited all of the schools in the district, greeting students and staff alike. Both the Mayor and Superintendent made a special visit to greet the newest students at Malden High School, the fi rstyear ninth-graders.For the fi rst time in two years, the freshmen students received a now traditional hero's welcome, with the entire 170-plus Malden High School staff lined up the greet them on the steps of the Jenkins Auditorium. For the return to the school, there are extensive, detailed protocols in place to ensure the health, safety and well-being of the students and staff . Supt.

Page 8 THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, September 3, 2021 Malden Today, Tomorrow and Yesterday – Irish American Labor Day Road Race By Peter F. Levine T he Malden tradition that we all know and love so much is back! Yes, it is that time of the year again, Maldonians! Summer is sadly in our rearview mirror, but with that glum news comes some really happy news! The annual Irish American Labor Day Road Race making Maldonians very happy will happen once again! I ran into old friend Mike McCarthy at the Saint Rocco Festa just last weekend! Mike reminded me that he, Brian Killion, and the rest of those wonderful folks at the Irish American Club will be sponsoring their annual I.A. 5k/10k Road Race again, this time at 10 a.m. on Monday, September 6. This is the best time of the year and I just love this event. It is truly what makes Malden special. Brian assured me that there is still plenty of time to register. Call him at 781-8206358 with any questions or go to www.runsignup.com to register beforehand. Also, if you are inclined, just go to the Irish American on West Street in person the day of the race to register. The signup fee is $30 until 10:30 a.m. Brian wanted to stress once again that all proceeds will go to Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. No better way to spend your hard-earned money than knowing that all proceeds go to fighting this dreaded disease. For male and female runners, medallions will be awarded for the fi rst-, second- and thirdplace fi nishers for many diff erent categories. Brian also wanted to make sure everybody knew that all festivities would take place outside the Irish Club on the day of the race. COVID-19 cautious is how Brian explained it to me. Family, friends, or complete strangers, come by and have a great time. Mark this on your calendar for a fun fi lled day of Volunteers at the last Irish American Labor Day Road Race; from left to right are unknown, Judy’s husband Mike Sullivan and Maureen’s husband Rocky Brooks.

This year there will be a disc jockey playing a variety of music, including some good old-fashioned, traditional Irish tunes. Brian wanted to personally thank the many sponsors and volunteers for their continued support and generosity. Without them, he told me, this event could not happen. “I participated in this race once way back in the day and had a blast! I remember the encouragement from friendly faces along the route and I also remember the unforgettable pain I felt after! But it was loads of fun despite the pain, and I really enjoyed the ‘refreshments’ part of the day after the race. I’ll be S LANDSCAPE & MASONRY CO.

Once again expect Mike “Mr. 02148” Cherone and Mayor Gary Christenson to run the race like the young bucks they are and fi nish in the top of their respective age categories, embarrassing those of us who have made the art of the recliner our way of life these days. Oh, and by the way, I’ll be sure to request the DJ program at least one Pogues song while I’m there (“Streams of Whiskey”?). “I saw the light, I saw the light “No more darkness, no more night “Now I’m so happy, no sorrow in sight “Praise the Lord, I saw the light” It took a chance listening of this old country gospel classic, which was written by the “Hillbilly Shakespeare” himself, Hiram King ‘Hank’ Williams, to make you truly appreciate that politics (local, statewide or national), version 2021, can be, well, complicated. For those reading my humble offerings this past month or so (and I really appreciate that you are reading my humble offerings), I have been including personal profi les of certain candidates running for offi ce this election season. Not all, just a few. The ones I’ve featured I’ve had a relationship with going back years. They reached out to me some time back and asked if I could write a little something, something about them. A couple of them are rookies and wanted to introduce themselves to their fellow Maldonians – new and older residents alike. A couple are grizzled, old veterans from years past who wanted to reacquaint themselves to our ever-growing, ever-changing population. Lawdy, lawdy! I guess I should have thought this out a little bit more before I went to print. To make a long story short, some politically active residents in this politically active city of ours were disappointed I did not give equal access to all candidates. Some pushed back. Most understood my position. My column is an odd one – not really sure what to call it. Human interest? Local interest? A combination of both, perhaps? With that said my articles are not held to the same standards as objective news reporting. The opinions I express are my own. Who and what I choose to include is strictly up to me. Also, and most importantly, there is simply not enough column space to include everything and everybody I would like. Lesson learned; I’ve seen the light! I’ll continue to include my “insider knowledge” of Malden peppered with that Peter Levine sense of humor you’ve all come to know and love, but going forward this wandering wordsmith promises to forgo anything that hints of politics. I’ve seen the light!! Now back to our regularly scheduled program. It’s in the books! Once again we gathered on (newly paved) Pearl Street to celebrate Saint Rocco Feast weekend. Fabulous weather welcomed pilgrims far and wide to enjoy this spectacular weekend of music, food and friendship. Thank you to the Italian American MALDEN: TODAY| SEE PAGE 10

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, September 3, 2021 Page 9 Mystic Watershed communities secure $3.6M in climate resilience funding F ollowing the release of $20 million in state fiscal year 2022 Municipal Vulnerability Preparedness (MVP) grants, the Mystic River Watershed Association (MyRWA) announced that Resilient Mystic Collaborative (RMC) cities and towns had secured a total of $2.6 million in state funding to help prepare for extreme weather. Of these funds, $1.1 million were grants for multi-community projects and $1.5 million went to individual municipalities. In addition, the Barr Foundation awarded the RMC a two-year, $950,000 renewal grant, bringing the total in new climate resilience funding to over $3.6 million. Such regional partnerships are critical to addressing the increasing risks communities face. “The recent Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report painted a daunting picture of the hotter, stormier Massachusetts we are becoming,” said MyRWA Deputy Director Julie Wormser. “These new resources, added to our work together over the past three years will help Mystic Watershed communities protect their people and places from increasingly extreme weather events.” Convened by MyRWA in September 2018 and led by senior staff from 20 cities and towns and nongovernmental partners, RMC focuses on: • Managing stormwater flooding on a regional scale • Preparing critical energy, transportation, food and wastewater infrastructure for coastal storms • Increasing the resilience of vulnerable residents and workers to extreme weather events • Working with state agencies to lower the bar for Massachusetts communities to prepare for climate challenges RMC includes 20 of 21 communities (Arlington, Belmont, Boston, Burlington, Cambridge, Chelsea, Everett, Lexington, Malden, Medford, Melrose, Somerville, Stoneham, Reading, Revere, Wakefield, Watertown, Winchester, Winthrop and Woburn) representing 98 percent of the Mystic River Watershed. It includes nonprofit and private sector partners as content experts, with senior municipal staff serving as the group’s voting members. All Mystic Watershed municipalities are welcome to participate. “Malden’s $354,600 FY2022 MVP Grant will continue to allow us to move forward with the design work on Malden River Works which is our community’s effort to incorporate a climate resilient park at the city’s Department of Public Works yard,” said Malden Mayor Gary Christenson. “This is a crucial precedent-setting project for Malden as it establishes new models of community engagement, implements green infrastructure, and promotes the Malden River Greenway.” “Winter 2018’s record nor’easFUNDING | SEE PAGE 18 I would appreciate your vote for Ward 8 City Councilor.

The IACC and its members generously donated their time, money and resources to make it yet another San Rock that we’ll never forget. Classic hits kings (the hardest working men in show business) The Reminisants started the party on Friday night; they never disappoint. The best Beatles tribute act on the North Shore, our good friends in Beatlejuice, continued the fun on Saturday night with another outstanding set of music. Malden’s very own Dave Russo killed it on Saturday also with that quick wit and charismatic personality. Saint Rocco just adores Heart Attack Ack Ack Ack Ack Ack, and so didn’t the Sunday afternoon gathering – always a crowd pleaser. In the Albert Spadafora Beer Garden, Davina Yannetty brought much joy into people’s lives with her engaging personality, musical talent and a catalog of songs that just does not quit. A welcome addition to the Feast, look for Davina to become a regular going forward. The music, the food and Maldonians eager to mingle again made this year’s Feast one we’ll soon not forget! A couple of takeaways from the Feast: The sadness in the Palermo family’s faces was palpable. The sight of the original Saint Rocco statue in the bay window of the Della Gatta’s second floor window gave me goosebumps. Richie Cremone was missed. Nick Gizzi, Andy Rigano, Tony Della Gatta and the rest of the Grease Pole organizers are to be applauded for bringing this cherished tradition back. Nice to see Derek “The Big Kahuna” O’Brien, The Big Kahuna’s mom Laurine, and daughter Jillian greet the Procession as we passed them on Thacher Street. Dom Fermano walking in the Procession on Sunday was downright inspirational. Can’t forget Anthony Spadafora when talking about the success of the Saint Rocco Feast. Without that reassuring way about him, without his dedication, without that great sense of pride and wonderful smile, without Anthony, the Feast would be in big trouble. True fact. “This is the end, beautiful friend, this is the end, my only friend, the end” – and now a word or two from an amazing young woman, my niece Dorothy Levine: “My dad isn’t one to brag about things he has accomplished and would rather remain behind the scenes. With that being said, let me tell you a quick little story. “It was 2012 and my dad was in the Malden Teen Center. A Malden Police Officer walked in and overheard a 9th grader make a negative comment. A light bulb went off in his head, ‘let me figure out a way to bring some of student/athletes and police together.’ First thing he did was round up 10 high school boys and 10 Malden Police Officers and had them play a basketball game in a closed gym, only a few of us got to witness that. The game was fun and competitive, after they chatted and had pizza together. During the school year of 2012 there was a soccer game, a volleyball game, and a flag football game. Fast forward 9 years and our police just finished coaching in their 4th season of the Mac Singleton outdoor basketball league. In the past nine years, they have played pickup games, run sports leagues and basketball tournaments together. The most important thing about this is that these kids and adults have made lifelong connections. Our student-athletes see that the Malden Police are just like them coming from the same streets and having the same love of sports, while some of the police say they see themselves in these kids. My dad [Malden Recreation Director Joe Levine] could not have done it without a group of amazing Malden police officers and the support of their department. The community policing here in Malden is something special. Thank you, Dad and Malden Police, for making this possible.”

This is expected to dramatically shorten the district’s annual waitlist, which averages 400 students. “We are grateful to the MSBA for supporting a new Northeast Metro Tech, giving our next gendent DiBarri said. The new school will feature 21st-century learning environments, improved Individualized Education Program (IEP) accommodations, state-of-the-art shop space, expanded program will now have up to 120 days to receive support from its 12 sending communities. The District must receive all approvals before Dec. 23, 2021; doing so will result in sending communities saving about $24 million in additional funds. With the vote of the MSBA Board, tax impact information for all 12 communities will be available and communities will have the opportunity to vote on the project this fall. Updates regarding the project and details about future community forums, as they become available, will be posted to the building project’s website and Facebook page. The project is being designed by architectural firm DRA with PMA Consultants as owner’s project manager and Gilbane Building Co. serving as construction manager at risk.

This acquired data will serve many purposes, such as providing a source of evidence or a means of determining training needs – and perhaps most importantly, a means by which the actions of officers can be viewed and assessed in a way that is currently lacking. It sends a strong and clear message to the community that its police department is accountable and transparent in its values and actions.

Every day Malden Police Officers respond to a variety of situations and circumstances that require a vast array of knowledge, skills and resources,” said Molis. “The use of body cameras will document the great and oftentimes heroic work that our officers perform on a regular basis in a way that is lasting and transparent.

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, September 3, 2021 Page 13 Poor Sportsmanship, Pandemic contributing to shortage of High School Sports Officials Behavior of parents cited as among the worst of all adult spectators at High School games By Dr. Karissa Niehoff Executive Director National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) A s high schools begin a third school year of sports and other activities impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, a familiar issue continues to challenge administrators nationwide: finding enough individuals to officiate all scheduled contests. In some states, Friday Night Lights have become Thursday or Saturday Night Lights as teams consider playing on alternate dates to accommodate the lack of individuals to officiate games. The shortage of officials in high school – and middle school – sports has been a growing concern for several years – in large part due to unsportsmanlike behavior by parents and other adult fans. Now, additional sports officials are electing to stay on the sidelines because of health concerns related to COVID-19, or they are uncomfortable wearing a mask during games. The challenge for schools and state associations remains twofold: how to recruit more individuals to become officials and how to retain those people currently serving as officials. Short of unexpected events like the coronavirus, if a new official remains active after the first three to five years, the outlook for a long-term career is pretty good. Hoping to make an impact nationally on the officiating shortage and the sportsmanship issues at hand is Dana Pappas, who joined the NFHS staff last month as the new Director of Officiating Services. Pappas joins the NFHS staff after 24 years with the New Mexico Activities Association, including the past 17 years as commissioner of officials. Although there was a hope that the post-pandemic behavior of parents and other fans would be improved, Pappas said the jury is definitely still out as sportsmanship issues have continued to exist. “From some of the early reports, there are still many acts of bad sportsmanship occurring,” Pappas said. “There are still people who are going after sports officials after games, during games, and it continues to be an adult problem.I don’t think too many of the issues we see are really the kids. It’s generally the spectators, although it can be coaches at times when their behavior incites the crowd. “I think the sportsmanship issue is something that continues to keep individuals from officiating, or we lose them because of poor sportsmanship.” Pappas noted that in addition to losing officials due to the COVID-19 concerns and poor sportsmanship, others may have changed jobs during the pandemic, and with some games being moved earlier in the day, they are unable to get free from their jobs to handle officiating assignments. While the loss of officials because of the pandemic is understandable and uncontrollable, losing individuals from the officiating ranks due to the boorish and over-the-top nasty behavPoor behavior by players' parents have plagued high school sports for many years and is now being blamed for contributing to a nationwide shortage of game officials in nearly every sport. (Courtesy Photo) ior of parents and other adults is unacceptable. Pappas said many states back the statement: “If you act in an inappropriate manner, you will have to pay.” While these programs are necessary, she also believes proactive plans should be in place as well. “Doing preseason meetings with coaches and parents are important, but I think having officials go and address parents and talk to them about rules changes is important. It would be great for officials to go and talk to parents and kids so that they understand that they are not just the bad guys in the striped shirts, that they are someone who wants to be a part of the educational process, who’s giving back and there really to help and educate. “There needs to be shift in those expectations and remind parents of what it was like when their kids didn’t have an opportunity to play. Everyone agrees that was not good for anyone last year. And if you continue to abuse officials, we are going to be exactly where we were because there won’t be any way to adjudicate these games.” The NFHS has been actively recruiting officials for four years through its #BecomeAnOfficial campaign. More than 50,000 individuals have expressed an interest in officiating through this national effort at www.highschoolofficials.com Most recently, the NFHS has been targeting high school coaches to consider officiating another sport in their off-season after previous campaigns directed to other groups. Assisting state associations and schools in recruiting more officials is also on Pappas’ To-Do list. “Kids coming out of high school think they have two options – to play sports or to coach sports. They forget about the people who are officiating their games! So, how do we make officiating something that is at the forefront of their minds? When they are leaving high school or leaving college, they need to understand that there is an entire career path they could follow in the world of high school officiating.” As fall high school sports swing into full action this month, let’s respect the men and women who are giving of their free time so that once-in-a-lifetime opportunities of high school activities can continue for our nation’s youth.

Date: August 26, 2021 TARA E. DECHRISTOFORO Register of Probate September 3, 2021 SOCIAL SECURITY BENEFITS R etirees have to decide when to collect their social security benefits. Widows or widowers can collect his or her benefits under their deceased spouse’s work history at age 60. Otherwise, you can collect benefits at age 62, at full retirement age which is age 66 if you were born in 1943-1954, age 66 and a certain number of months (based upon your year of birth between 1955 and 1959) or age 67 for those born in 1960, or at age 70. In 1983, Congress reduced Social Security Benefits by raising the retirement age and gradually increasing the monthly benefit available to you if you wait until age 70 to begin collecting. For individuals born after 1960, the Social Security Administration increases monthly benefits approximately by 7% per year between the ages of 62 and 70 if you wait to collect at age 70. Therefore, by waiting until age 70 to collect, your actual monthly benefit will have been increased by approximately 76%. Furthermore, those highter monthly benefits are also indexed to inflation. As an example, if someone were able to collect $1,125 per month at age 62, waiting until age 70 would result in a monthly benefit of $1,980, for a $855/month increase. One option is to withdraw from an existing retirement account such as a Roth IRA, Traditional IRA, 403 (b) or 401(k) plan for the years from age 62 to age 70. Then, you can begin collecting your social security at age 70. If you were to die with a surviving spouse, your surviving spouse would be able to collect your monthly benefit with cost of living increases each year based upon the higher age 70 benefit. Your spouse would have to be married to you for at least 10 years. This would also help your minor children who would be able to collect based upon the higher age 70 monthly benefit that you were receiving prior to your death. Another option is to continue working part time until age 70 in order to generate enough cash flow to meet your monthly living expenses. Of course, if these options are not feasible, you can certainly begin collecting at full retirement age, or even age 62 if your situation warrants it. If you have not done so already, go onto the Social Security Administration website at www.ssa.gov and establish a user id and password. You will have the ability to double check that all of your earnings have been posted to your account and you will be able to see what your monthly benefit would be based upon the year you wish to begin collecting. Also keep in mind that up to 85% of your social security benefit can be taxable depending upon your other taxable income. Joseph D.

Smallwood April 8, 1948– August 29, 2021 Debbie was born in Lynn, Massachusetts, the first child of what would eventually be six children, by Malverne and Marjorie. She spent her childhood years growing up in Malden, Massachusetts, in a busy house with five brothers and sisters, sharing a room with two of her sisters. They were a close family and lived a simple and humble life. She had very little private space, if any, that she could call hers. Instead, she learned how to involve and share herself with everyone in her life, always with God in her heart at her core. She always had a simple, loving, giving and sincere Christian lifestyle. She attended public school in Malden and graduated from Malden High School. She also attended and was an active member at First Baptist Church in Malden. As a teenager, she got a job at Jordan Marsh in Boston, where she met her best friend (and lifelong friend) Lorraine Bates. After graduating from high school, Debbie married Fred Bonanno and then had three children: Fred, Jim and Amie. Later, God called her to work as a foster parent, where she met and adopted her fourth child, Jason Smallwood. Working as a foster parent, she often commented that she learned more from the kids and she could teach the kids. She continued an active membership and fellowship with God at First Baptist Church in Melrose, Mass., where she later moved.

Will this aff ect our Medicare benefi ts? Will we need to adjust our coverage or re-enroll in a new plan? Moving Away Dear Moving, Moving can indeed aff ect your Medicare benefi ts depending on the type of coverage you have and where you move to. If you and your husband are enrolled in “original Medicare” Part A and Part B, you’ll be happy to know that you won’t need to change your plans when you move because they’re the same throughout the U.S. You will, however, need to notify the Social Security Administration of your change of address, which you can do at SSA.gov/myaccount/change-of-address. html or by calling 800-772-1213. But, if you’re enrolled in a Medicare (Part D) prescription drug plan, or a Medicare (Part C) Advantage plan and you move out of your plan’s service area, you’ll need to choose a new plan that serves your new area. Here’s a breakdown of what you’ll need to do depending on the type of coverage you have. If you have a Part D plan: If you’re in rolled in original Medicare and have a stand-alone Medicare Part D prescription drug plan, you’ll need to contact your Part D plan to fi nd out if it will work in the area you’re moving to. If it doesn’t, you’ll need to enroll in a new plan that provides coverage in your new location. You can make this switch the month before you move and up to two months after the move. Otherwise, you’ll need to wait until the next open enrollment (in the fall) and could be penalized for having no acceptable prescription drug coverage. If you have a Medicare Advantage plan: If you’re enrolled in a Medicare Advantage plan, again, contact your plan to fi nd out if it will serve your new area. If it doesn’t, you’ll need to enroll in a new plan that does. To shop for new Advantage and/or Part D prescription drug plans in your new location, see Medicare.gov/plan-compare. You can switch Advantage plans the month before you move and up to two months after you move. But be aware that if you relocate out of your Medicare Advantage plan’s service area and fail to enroll in a new plan in your new area, you’ll automatically be switched to original Medicare. This will happen when your old Medicare Advantage plan is forced to disenroll you because you don’t live within its service area anymore. If you have a Medigap policy: If you’re enrolled in original Medicare and have a supplemental (Medigap) policy, you’ll need to notify your provider that you’re moving, but you should not need to change insurance companies or plans. (Note: there also are Medicare Select plans, which are Medigap plans that are network-based and are available in a few states. These plans may require you to change.) Medigap plans are standardized across the country; for example, Medigap Plan F off ers the same coverage in one state as it does in another state (Massachusetts, Minnesota, and Wisconsin have waivers from the federal government allowing them to standardize Medigap plans diff erently, so plan designs are diff erent in those three states). But be aware that Medigap costs vary by location, so your monthly Medigap policy premium may be higher or lower depending on the cost of medical care in your new area. Call your provider and tell them the new ZIP code, and they’ll let you know the cost. Sometimes you’ll be pleasantly surprised that it’s lower. If it’s not, you could look for a cheaper policy. However, you may have to undergo medical underwriting. Medigap policies come with their own rules for enrolling, and some states have diff erent enrollment standards than others.
