After listening to 90 minutes of both political and personal talk from the candidates, some undecided voters left the forum feeling there were no knock-outs and both Mayor Gary Christenson, who is seeking his third term, and challenger John Matheson, who has represented Ward 3 on the City Council for the past eight years, offered convincing arguments about their ability to lead the city. MATV Government Affairs Coordinator Guillermo Hamlin moderated the forum with panelists Serge Perfini, who represented the Chamber of Commerce, Henry Zhao, a Malden High School freshman and member of the Chinese Cultural Connection, Mass Senior Action Council member Marcia Manong and Jim Mitchell, editor and publisher of The Malmost of us can’t afford,” he said.

Christenson and Matheson outlined their positions on topics that ranged from development and affordable housing to trash bags and community gardens. The candidates went back and forth on several major issues, with Christenson touting his administration’s accomplishments and Matheson criticizing his record. When asked about their specific plans for providing more affordable housing for seniors, Christenson pointed to the three-prong strategy recently presented by the Malden Redevelopment Authority. Christenson said the city is working on establishing an affordable housing trust fund supported by half of the incoming mitigation money from new developments, conducting an inclusionary zoning feasibility analysis and creating a revolving security deposit fund to help residents displaced by rent increases move to new homes. “We’re also working on some other issues we hope to forward to the Council,” said Christenson, who did not offer any specific plans to provide affordable housing for seniors. Matheson hit back by pointing to Christenson’s record on residential housing development. “He’s had this city for eight years and we’ve had a boom in market-rate apartments that fighting for plans to build affordable housing for seniors and veterans at the Malden Hospital site. He added that Christenson supported a developer’s proposal for build several hundred more market-rate units on the site. “Malden Hospital is an opportunity to take the remaining development that will occur in the city and do it right,” he said. But on affordable housing and other issues, Christenson repeatedly stressed that Matheson criticizes programs and floats proposals without any plans to carry them forward. “He has served alongside me for eight years. Where is his affordable housing plan?” asked Christenson, who urged voters to ask for the details. “It’s not the what, it’s the how,” he added. The candidates had a similar exchange on blue trash bags and the administration’s plan to replace them with barrels and recycling bins which will cost FORUM | SEE PAGE 17 Bay State Commons pressures Historical Commission to lift demo delay for Legion building By Barbara Taormina M $3.39 $2.55 GALLON GALLON We accept: MasterCard * Visa * & Discover Price Subject to Change without notice 100 Gal. Min. 24 Hr. Service 781-286-2602 embers of the Malden Historical Commission and the Bay State Commons co-housing group are struggling to find a compromise on a plan to preserve historical elements of the former American Legion post on Pleasant Street. Last month, the Historical Commission members agreed the building was historically significant and “preferably preserved.” Commission members voted to delay Bay State Common’s application to raze the building and replace it with a co-housing project with 30 units built around shared interior and exterior spaces. The city’s Demolition Delay Ordinance gives the commission the authority to put a demolition permit on hold for up to a year while owners consider alternatives to preserve the property or sell it. This week, members of the commission met with Bay State Commons’ lawyer, Roberto Demarco, and an architect for the project to discuss elements of the Legion building that could be saved and incorporated into the design for a new building. Demarco told the commission that the Bay State Commons members are willing to try and blend the granite steps and some columns from the side portico into the new building. The group also agreed to add an oculus window and create a mini park with a plaque describing the history of the building. “At this point any additional work proposed by this board gets us into an area of extreme expense,” said Demarco, who also told the commission that members of Bay State Commons, who bought the property three years ago, are suffering financially because of the demolition delay. He also told commission members that a lawsuit has been drafted and is ready and waiting to be filed. Demarco and others who support the plan for a new building have argued that time and renovations have stripped the Legion building of its historical characteristics and made it a poor candidate for preservation. However, local historian Frank Russell has said that the Legion building is the last of several 19th century suburban estates that were built along Pleasant Street. According to Russell, several of the building’s original features, such as the front gable, floor-length windows and the entry way, could be preserved to bring the building back. Commission members seemed to be hoping for more preservation than Demarco said the Bay Stater Commons group is willing to consider. They suggested the building exterior and setting should reflect its original grander and fit with other buildings in the neighborhood. But Demarco repeatedly stressed that overhauling the design for the new co-housing building is impossible, and preserving a handful of details is the most the group could do. Except for Inna Babitskaya, commission members seemed to accept that preserving the building is not realistic and retaining elements that capture some of its original characteristics is the most they could expect. Babitskaya felt that that saving architectural details is not enough and that the building should be preserved. Demarco left the meeting with a list of elements the commission asked Bay State Commons to incorporate into their designs for their new building. Architects will provide sketches to the commission to be discussed at their next meeting on the project.

He also feels the district needs a guidance program that helps students explore all appropriate career paths. As a member of the Social, Emotional and Physical Well Being subcommittee, McCarthy has been involved in the district’s efforts to protect and possibly expand recess time. “The recess issue goes to the heart of social-emotional learning,” he said. “Children need an opportunity for free play and free activity.” McCarthy has said out-of-district special education costs are a budgetary challenge, and he supports the idea of launching innovation special ed programs that will keep students in Malden and potentially attract students from other disAnna Geoffroy Ward 2 School Committee Member candidate tricts. In the past he has proposed reviewing the district’s inclusion model that places special needs students in mainstream classrooms to ensure students are in appropriate programs with adequate resources and safeguards. He supports the efforts to ensure racial equity and to hire more teachers and staff of color. “We need a staff that is a mirror image of the student body,” he said. ‘We’ve made some strides, but we need to continue to work on this with outreach to colleges, teachers’ fairs and other recruitment strategies.” McCarthy said all children have one chance at first grade and every grade along the way, and it’s up to the district’s leaders to make sure each step provides everything students need to learn and grow. “It’s all about allowing kids to have the best opportunities possible,” he said.

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, September 27, 2019 Page 3 Malden today, tomorrow, and yesterday: Ryder Cup 2019 in the books By Peter Levine Chief Molis continued: “Saint S aturday, September 7, a gorgeous late summer morning at Hillview Golf Course in North Reading, saw the Ancient Order of Hibernians from Charles Street convincingly take home yet another title against the Italian American Citizens Club, their 4th straight Ryder Cup Golf Tournament victory! Whispers from above are talking regime change at the I.A.C.C., but it has been learned that Captain/General Manager/ ace golfer Jimmy Cahill will not suffer the fate of recently fired Red Sox GM Dave Dombrowski and will return for yet another shot next year as captain. His fellow golfers stating on the record that they have full confidence in his abilities to lead them to victory in 2020. Taking the lead for the I.A.C.C. and displaying that “never say die attitude” all afternoon were Charles Ranaghan, Nelson Miller, Martin and Brendan Cahill, Peter Robinson (exceptional day I am told), Gene Pinkham and Mark Doyle. Mr. Cahill, inconsolable right after the loss, was later quoted: “The boys never gave up and played right to the very end. It’s now tied at 4 each! Can’t wait for the rubber match next year when things will be much different. Special thanks to A.O.H. captain and stand-up guy Mike Tilley – sportsmanship at its very, very best.” A.O.H. Captain Mike Tilley and his band of merry men were red hot all morning. The A.O.H. boys did some serious bushwhacking this fine September morning! Jimmy Carducci & Merle, Brian Tilley & Ryan Fortier, Billy “Bull” O’Leary & Malcolm Muldowney, Rich “Turk” Turcotte & JohnRocco’s shows what Malden has been, what it is, and what it will always be… THE BEST PLACE TO LIVE, WORK, WORSHIP AND TO RAISE A FAMILY!!!! And with that THE BEST PLACE TO BE POLICE CHIEF.” Speaking (again) of the Saint Rocco weekend, the Saint Rocco committee would also like to thank JRM Hauling & Recycling and CEO Jim Motzkin in particular for their continued generosity.

In between swigs of expensive champagne, Mike Tilley was quoted: “Was an awesome day all around. Everyone had a great time. Dorian stayed off shore, the sun came out and the A.O.H. won. All good things!” Malden Police Chief Kevin Molis spent most of Saint Rocco weekend on Pearl Street keeping law and order but also enjoying his childhood neighborhood block party: “From the perspective of being the Malden Police Chief and still a ‘Kid from Edgeworth’ what stood out for me that weekend is what Saint Rocco’s says about who we are as a city. Saint Rocco’s represents a group of Italian immigrants coming to America and to Edgeworth and bringing with them their rich culture and customs, their proud traditions and their strong faith and not keeping it for themselves but offering and sharing it with others. My own ancestors on my mother’s side had made a similar journey from Ireland to Edgeworth. Saint Rocco’s was born out of those proud Italian immigrants remembering where they were from and keeping that spirit alive in their new home. But what stood out for me as the Malden Police Chief was that on that same weekend, I had the joy, honor and privilege to attend a Caribbean Festival at Lincoln Commons and to stand among a large gathering of Muslims as they prayed during a Holy Day called Eid al- Adha. Each and every day there are tremendous examples of people from all over the world who have chosen Malden to be their home, just like those proud Italian immigrants did so many years ago.” 505 Broadway Everett, MA 02149 Tel: 617-387-1120 www.gkdental.com • Family Dentistry • Crowns • Bridges • Veneers/Lumineers • Dental Implants • All on 4 Dental Implants • Emergency Dentist • Kid Friendly Dentist • Root Canals • Dentures • Invisalign Braces • Snap On Smile • Teeth Whitening We are the smile care experts for your entire family OIL CHANGE SPECIAL Up to 5 Quarts of Oil (Most Vehicles) Includes FREE Brake Inspection & Safety Check Only $24.95 DRIVE IT - PUSH IT - TOW IT!

Seniors Jake Morrow and Santiago Marmolejo Rocha of Melrose completed internships at the law firm of Foster, Walker & Di Marco, P.C., under the watchful eye of its Partner and Malden resident, Roberto Di Marco. Morrow was thankful for the opportunity: “It really opened my eyes to what it’s like to be a lawyer. I was able to go to court several times and be in meetings as they worked with clients on some interesting transactions.” “My partners and I are thrilled to be able to offer two students from Malden Catholic the opportunity to gain experience working in the law,” said Di Marco, an MC graduate. “We sought to create a rewarding experience for them at our firm. It was an honor to give back to MC. MC MC seniors Santiago Marmolejo Rocha and Jake Morrow recently completed internships at Foster, Walker & Di Marco, P.C. (Courtesy Photo) made a huge impact on my life in many ways, and having the opportunity to stay connected to the MC community, and to give back some time and knowledge to a student is a privilege for me.” “Malden Catholic students are not only learning about future career possibilities, but also having the opportunity to experience first-hand how classroom learning relates to the various professional industries,” said MC Senior Director of Institutional Advancement Robert McCarthy. “Our alumni business leaders are role models for our students, building confidence, elevating self-esteem, inspiring new goals, and raising future aspirations – transforming classroom learning and challenging our students to go ‘plus ultra’ today and in the future.” Morrow and Santiago were chosen for the internships after a competitive essay and application process with over 40 MC applicants. The Apprenticeship Program included a kick-off BBQ and a Business Training Seminar giving an overview of business etiquette and expectations. “We are very excited about the launch of our Apprenticeship Program,” said Headmaster John Thornburg. “We believe that partnering with our many amazing alumni helps further differentiate the Malden Catholic experience. We dream of a day when all our students can enjoy an internship experience through one of our many successful alumni.” The inaugural Alumni Hosts were: • Joseph O’Donnell ’62; Founder of Boston Culinary Group • Richard LeBranti ’94; CFP/ Co-Founder of Doble LeBranti Financial Group • Nicolas Gennetti ’02; Corporate – Manager of Operations at The Herb Chambers Companies • Christopher Caprio ’95; CFO of Focus Technology Solutions • Roberto Di Marco ’91; Partner at Foster, Walker & DiMarco, P.C. DI MARCO | SEE PAGE 14 Under mayor’s leadership, Malden receives highest ever bond rating from Moody’s (Editor's Note: this story was submitted by Mayor Gary Christenson's Office) fter a comprehensive review associated with a new debt issuance, ratings agency Moody’s recently provided the City of Malden with a bond rating of Aa3, the highest rating in the history of the City of Malden. A city government’s bond rating determines the cost of borrowing for projects ranging from water main replacements to parks and schools. Borrowing funds is a regular part of the operation of any government entity, and the ability of a city government to maintain a high bond rating is an important indicator of the health and leadership of the municipality. “I’m extremely pleased with the confidence that Moody’s A has shown in the City of Malden. Residents should know that these ratings are only provided after we have in-depth calls with the ratings agency, during which time they probe every aspect of our finances and our management team,” said Mayor Gary Christenson. “It truly represents a financial report card for us, and the impact is great. Since I took office, we have been able to increase our rating two steps, saving the city and by extension the residents of Malden millions in borrowing costs” added Christenson. “Our most recent debt had a true interest cost of about 2.4 percent. Being able to borrow funds at these rates really helps us redirect money that would otherwise be spent on interest costs to other important initiatives.” Prices subject to change FLEET

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, September 27, 2019 Page 5 Malden’s first safer homes, safer community gun buyback to take place Oct. 5 M alden High School students are teaming up with the Malden Police Department and the Middlesex Sheriff’s Office to host the first ever gun buyback program in the city. The gun buyback initiative will take place on Saturday, October 5, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. This public safety event will provide residents with an opportunity to anonymously and safely dispose of any unwanted firearms from their homes. By safely reducing the number of unwanted firearms in our city, there is a strong likelihood that we might also achieve the goal of reducing the potential dangers that can be associated with these weapons, including theft and accidental shootings. The event will be taking place at a location that provides a safe and convenient way for those who want to participate. Consistent with its strong commitment to public health and wellness, Cambridge Health Alliance has graciously allowed for the use of its outdoor parking lot as the location for the event. The gun buyback event will take place at 195 Canal St. in Malden. Members of the community who choose to participate may do so anonymously. No identification is required, and no personal information will be requested. Any weapons can be turned in with no questions asked. Members of the Malden Police Department and the Middlesex Sheriff’s Office will be present and will be coordinating and overseeing the acceptance and destruction of the unwanted firearms. Gift cards Because this is a gun buyback initiative, members of the public will receive gift cards in exchange for any unwanted firearms that are turned in. The gift cards will be issued in varying amounts based upon the following guidelines: $100 – Assault Rifle; $50 – Rifle/Handgun; $25 – BB Rifle/Pistol. “Providing residents the opportunity to safely remove unwanted and unsecured firearms from homes serves to make both our homes and our communities safer,” said Middlesex Sheriff Peter J. Koutoujian. “We are proud to work with these outstanding young student leaders and our partners at the Malden Police Department to support this critically important public safety effort.” “There are many things that contribute to the safety and well-being of any community. It involves partnerships. It involves people deciding that they want to make a difference,” said Malden Chief of Police, Kevin Molis. “This voluntary gun buyback is an example of that. The power of it is enhanced by the fact that it involves the motivation of our young people, Malden High students.” “We became really interested in hosting a gun buyback after we met with Chief Molis at Civics Day last year, where we were presenting our Generation Citizen project on reducing gun violence,” said Malden High School sophomores Ketshaly Philome, Tamara Philius and Alexi Dao. “Being able to host the gun buyback is one way that we feel we can make our city safer, by removing unwanted guns from homes and making sure people don’t get hurt by those guns.” IN CASE YOU DIDN’T KNOW...

Let’s think about the good things that are coming up during the autumn season with the parties, costumes and holiday celebrations. The holiday that comes to mind to me is Halloween, and do I have a story for you about that. One year, I went to a Halloween party at the Bellevue Country Club, dressed in my mother’s wedding dress, but I was dressed as a 1920s flapper. I wore a headband around my forehead. The costume didn’t win me a prize, but I really felt that I looked great. I looked like an attractive flapper of the 20s. However, I couldn’t help but think of my dear, sweet mother who was married in this dress in 1924. She was much shorter than me, so it was a perfect fit for my needs. And we both looked terrific in it! Wearing a costume can sometimes really make you feel like a kid again. Well, my next story may be about Thanksgiving and all the good times we will have with our families. In the meantime, let’s enjoy the cooler days, the pretty autumn leaves, and the enjoyment of Halloween and let’s try not to dwell on the winter! Happy Autumn to All! Virginia Ruane is a lifelong Malden resident. Please send comments and suggestions to virginiaruane@aol.com. MATV Gallery exhibit takes a “closer look” at bugs! L et’s face it. Bugs have an image problem. Some people appreciate them but they give many folks the creeps. Yet bugs are everywhere. Insects are the largest known group of animals, making up three-quarters of animal species. That’s a lot of bugs! The new exhibit in the MATV Gallery features the artwork of photographer Liz Tomkins. “Part of the image problem of bugs is that most of them are very small, averaging less than six millimeters long. It’s hard to appreciate something you can’t see,” she said. That’s where her artistry comes in. Through magnification, Tompkins’ photographs zoom in on their subject, enlarging details and features, helping the viewer to differentiate between types of tiny bugs, to appreciate their varied structures and colors and movements. All of the work is photography, though some pieces look like paintings or drawings or mixed media. Each piece in the exhibit is also tagged with a “fun fact” about the insect it features. “I began photographing insects a few years ago under our porch lights, to get over my fear of little flying things,” said Tompkins. “The little flying things turned out to be pretty interesting when they were magnified 30 times. My wonder at the diversity of life grows with each new bug I discover. I invite you to share in that wonder.” Tompkins is a retired seventh grade science teacher from the Malden Public Schools which, she says, explains her interest in pretty much anything. She began showing her work at the first Window Arts Malden event in 2007. She also participated in The Gallery at 480 Main Street, and her bugs have also made an appearance at the Malden Public Library. “Bugs: A Closer Look” will be on view through November 30. A reception with the artist will take place on Wednesday, October 23, from 6:30–8:00 p.m. It will include a short presentation and audience discussion about the exhibit. The MATV Gallery is located at MATV, Malden’s Media Center, at 145 Pleasant St. Hours are Monday–Thursday, 10 a.m.–9 p.m.; Friday, 10 a.m.–6 p.m.; and Saturday, 10 a.m.–2 p.m. For more information, visit www.matv.org/gallery.

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, September 27, 2019 Page 7 Malden receives $400K for Trafton Park T he Malden Redevelopment Authority (MRA) has won a $400,000 grant for improvements at Trafton Park on Granite Street, the maximum award amount under the state’s competitive Parkland Acquisitions and Renovations for Communities grant program, Secretary of Energy and Environmental Affairs Kathleen Theoharides announced this week. The grant will be used to implement the first phase of improvements under the new Trafton Park Master Plan, which was developed through a series of community meetings in 2018 and 2019 that were led by Ward 6 Councillor Dave Camell, Councillor-at-Large Steve Winslow and the Malden Redevelopment Authority. The Master Plan envisions a more inclusive and accessible Trafton Park, including an upgraded baseball field, a new U8 soccer field, expanded play areas for children of all ages, a multiuse play court, a challenge course designed for teens and pre-teens, improvements to the existing dog park, a plaza for community concerts and events, a paved walking path encircling the park, and other features. The PARC grant will go toward constructing Phase I improvements, which includes expanding play areas, upgrading the ball field, addressing accessibility concerns, and other needs. “This grant is a major win for our city and is the result of an intensive team effort and great community partnerships,” said Mayor Gary Christenson. “This grant will help us make Trafton Park a more welcoming and accessible park for residents of all ages and abilities and help us continue to move Malden forward for everyone.” “Trafton Park is really the heart of our ward,” said Camell. “That's why it was I important that this project was community led and incorporated so much feedback from our residents. What I am most excited about is that these changes are going to help make the park a place where entire families can come and spend the day together.” “This grant helps ensure that the updates to Trafton Park will reflect the call from residents to both rehabilitate the best elements of Trafton – the play area, field, walkways and dog park – while also enAward-Winning Landscaping Servicing the North Shore for over 38 Years hancing those elements to allow for youth softball, baseball and soccer on the field and accommodate a greater variety of play on the courts,” said Councillor Steve Winslow. “This grant award will go a long way toward achieving the Eminating from The Clubhouse in Chelsea...

This legislation, an unprecedented $1.5 billion investment in Massachusetts public schools, will expand opportunities for all students, especially those facing educational disadvantages, and provide more resources to all of our communities. The Student Opportunity Act Communities Overcoming Violence significantly helps school districts that serve high percentages of low-income students. At the same time, school districts across the Commonwealth will benefit from updates to the existing funding formula, along with increased state investment in other vital education aid programs, such as transportation, school buildings and special education. These new investments are coupled with policy updates designed to monitor and measure progress, support effective approaches to closing opportunity gaps, and deliver results for all students. Lewis and other legislative leaders commented on the bill’s launch. “The Student Opportunity Act will make an unprecedented $1.5 billion investment in our public schools, ensuring that school districts across the Commonwealth have adequate and equitable resources to provide all students, especially those facing adversity, with a high-quality public education,” said Lewis. “I look forward to continuing to work with my colleagues and all education stakeholders as this bill advances in the legislative process.” “We know that education drives opportunity, and that’s why access to a quality public education has been a guiding principle in Massachusetts since its founding,” said Senate President Karen Spilka. “With the Student Opportunity Act, we recognize that providing the resources and tools that students need is both our basic responsibility and our greatest path to creating opportunity in the 21st century. I commend the work of the Education Committee in developing a bill that will help create educational opportunities to serve students across the state, now and throughout their lives.” “The Student Opportunity Act builds on our ongoing efforts to support our neediest students and to close opportunity gaps,” said House Speaker Robert DeLeo. “The bill includes significant investments, placing a special emphasis on English learners and districts serving high concentrations of low-income students. In addition, this bill makes investments in school buildings, special education and transportation for districts across the state. Both the House and Senate have taken the noteworthy step of collaborating, side-by-side, to craft a bill that reflects a joint approach to support students. Thank you to Senate President Spilka for her leadership on this issue, and for the hard work of Chairs Peisch and Lewis to move this bill forward.” “The Student Opportunity Act is the result of the analysis of input from a wide variety of stakeholders, including students, parents, educators, the business community, as well as experts in the education field,” said Peisch. “I want to thank Senator Lewis – my co-chair – my fellow committee members, and legislative staff for their tireless efforts to craft this legislation. Today’s executive session was just the first step in the process of enacting this legislation. We all share the common goal of providing the highest quality public education for all our children, and this bill is a giant step towards achieving that goal.” Mayor Gary Christenson and MRA Executive Director Deborah Burke recently joined a number of advocates and project partners to celebrate the reopening of FitzGerald Park.

The project was funded through the City’s Community Development Block Group program, a generous donation from John Preotle of Preotle, Lane & Associates, and a Malden Arts grant through the Community Preservation Committee. “These improvements are part of our ongoing efforts to revitalize Malden Square, and we were proud to partner with the City, Malden Arts, and Preotle, Lane & Associates on this project,” said Burke. “These improvements have created more space for children to play and added more recreational space to our downtown.” Improvements included adding new play equipment, a drawing table for children, a talk tube, and benches. Existing benches were also repainted, complementing the existing “The Wonderful World of Ed Emberley” mural. In the coming weeks, Preotle, Lane & Associates will install a new hoop fence, planters and trash receptacles.

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, September 27, 2019 ~ Op-Ed ~ Page 13 Is Malden Adding to Global Climate Crisis? By Kathleen Sullivan T he argument about whether there is a global climate crisis is no longer a real argument because science has produced evidence which demonstrates that the Earth is warming at an accelerated rate. One of the reasons for this accelerated temperature rise is something known as heat islands in urban areas. These can be asphalt parking lots, street pavement, buildings and artificial turf fields. All of these increase the surface temperature of the ground which locks in the heat and causes it to rise into the surrounding atmosphere. Urban areas experience 2-7 degree temperature acceleration during hot weather compared to more rural or areas with greater amounts of vegetation. Besides the obvious reasons for urban heat islands: our streets, sidewalks and buildings, Malden continues to remove our grass fields and replace them with plastic grass turf fields. Currently, the City of Malden is home to 5 artificial turf fields. There is yet another plan to remove the grass at the Salemwood School Field, also known as, Roosevelt Field and replace it with a $2.6 million plastic grass field. Instead of removing our grass fields, Malden should be looking to increase our natural green spaces and maintain the ones that we have. Poor drainage is no excuse for removing 3.75 acres of natural grass which is acting as a cooling surface in a highly congested area of our City which is currently home to 4 of the 5 artificial turf fields in Malden. Natural grass actually cools the air through a process called transpiration. Feel the grass versus asphalt on a warm day. Grass also absorbs the carbon dioxide in the air, removes pollutants, and releases oxygen. Malden is the hometown of Senator Ed Markey, who has penned the Green New Deal on a federal level. It seems that Malden should be doing better to support the purpose of this policy which is to increase our efforts to reduce the current situation of our climate warming too rapidly and to be more inclusive of our environmental justice neighborhoods when planning and designing such projects as Roosevelt Park. Malden can do better. We must do better. Our children deserve better. https://climatekids.nasa.gov/ heat-islands/ Housing Advocate Laura Rosi to lead Malden-based Housing Families Organization H ousing Families, Inc.

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, September 27, 2019 Page 15 Despite strong start, Football Tornadoes fall to Somerville BOX SCORE By Nick Toscani A strong start did not hold up for the Malden High football team on Friday as host Somerville rallied for two unanswered, third-quarter touchdowns in a 27-15 win over the Golden Tornadoes squad at Dilboy Stadium in Somerville. It was the first league game of the newly reconstituted Greater Boston League (GBL) for both teams. The loss left Malden at 0-2 (0-1 GBL) to start the season as Somerville evened out at 1-1 (1-0 GBL). Malden got off to a good start with a 65-yard scoring drive to open the game, which was capped by a 34-yard field goal by sophomore placekicker Ronald Juarez. The 3-0 Malden lead held up until late in the second quarter when the turnover bug hit the Golden Tornadoes once again when Somerville picked off a pass to set up a first down at Malden’s 45-yard line. Somerville took the lead on the very next play on a 45-yard touchdown run, and after an extra-point kick was on top, 7-3. Malden had played solid defense to that point, led by defensive end Eli Beato and linebacker Gio Memeus, but once Somerville scored the Highlanders seemed to take control of the momentum. "We were battling, but we had some setbacks when two of our top players went out of the game early for good with injuries,” Malden coach Steve Freker said. “We had to change our game plan and move some other players into different positions, and we were not able to get back into a good flow offensively.” Malden turned the ball over three more times in the third quarter, and Somerville capitalized quickly with two more touchdowns, one on a short field, starting from their own 9-yard line and another on a long pass play which beat the Tornadoes secondary. Malden was down, 213, heading into the fourth quarter but answered back with pair of long touchdown strikes. Sophomore quarterback Shawn Bartholomew hit for two touchdown passes, a 45-yarder to senior Jamari Linehan endorsed for Malden City Council by Environmental League of Massachusetts Action Fund T he Environmental League of Massachusetts (ELM) Action Fund has endorsed Amanda Linehan of Malden for City Council. “Amanda has experience fighting for what’s best for her community,” stated ELM Action Fund Executive Director Clare Kelly. “Her deep understanding of the environmental and transportation issues facing Malden will make her a strong City Councilor.” “Amanda has a long-term vision for a sustainable and prosperous future,” said ELM Action Fund President Elizabeth Henry. “She will push Malden to lead the Commonwealth in emissions reduction.” “I am honored to have received the endorsement of the Environmental League of Massachusetts, an organization dedicated to protecting our environment, preparing for and combating climate change, and fighting for public health,” said Linehan. “I count myself as an ally in their mission to sustainably manage urban parks Amanda Linehan Ward 3 Councillor candidate and waterways, build a modern transportation system, and support walkable communities, and I can’t wait to get started helping Malden work toward carbon neutrality.” Linehan’s experience includes serving on the Board of Directors for the Malden Redevelopment Authority and Asian Community Development Corporation, Communications Director for the Metropolitan Area Planning Council and member of the Mayor’s Advisory Committee on Walkability.

Malden scored on its next possession, on a 41-yard TD pass play across the middle from Bartholomew to junior Mike Mathes, for the 27-15 final. “We played much better defensively from Week One to Week Two against Somerville, but we have to eliminate the turnovers,” the Malden coach said. “We have to create and finish off drives.” Malden is back in action tonight on the road in a non-league game at Lynnfield High with a 7:00 p.m. kickoff.

It’s part of Atria’s 100 Days of Gratitude Challenge and the fourth annual Go Grateful campaign. The campaign officially began on World Gratitude Day on September 21, marking 100 days until the end of the year. This year Atria Maplewood Place residents and staff are trying to inspire others to also go grateful for 100 days. Atria residents have shown gratitude in previous years by delivering gift baskets to first responders, holding pop-up tai chi classes in parks, organizing flash mobs and setting up “appreciation stations” in their communities. This year they collected school supplies during the whole month of August to donate to Cheverus School in Malden. The public is also invited to share their #GoGrateful stories on social media. For every post on Facebook using the hashtag #GoGrateful through the 100 Days of Gratitude Challenge, Atria will also donate $1 to PACER’s National Bullying LEGAL NOTICE Cheverus School Donation with Student Council: From left to right: Donna MacDonald, Phuc Nguyen, Jessica Berlus, Peggy Kenny, Stevie Leigh Bannon, Leonie Ochie, Yolandy Vargas, Jennifer Duffy (Atria’s Engage Life Program Instructor), Doris DiTullio, Sophia Almeida, Shamaelle Jean Louis, Bruce Shuman, Chloe Sacco, Samuel Lacombe, and Principal Jeff Lane. Prevention Center. Each donation will support the Center’s mission of promoting kindness and a world without bullying. “I travelled the world when I worked for the United Nations, and I found in each place showing gratitude was a powerful thing. No matter where we are, each of us is human and can connect by giving gratitude; even a small act matters,” said Florence Stoessler, who is 103 years old and an Atria resident. “We believe in the power of gratitude so deeply that we wrote an award-winning book about it in 2015,” said Atria’s City of Malden Massachusetts LEGAL NOTICE MALDEN HISTORICAL COMMISSION PUBLIC HEARING The Malden Historical Commission will hold a public hearing in the Auditorium on the First Floor of the JOHN & CHRISTINA MARKEY MALDEN SENIOR COMMUNITY CENTER, 7 Washington Street, Malden, MA at 7:00 PM on Thursday, October 17, 2019, to review the permit application for the proposed demolition of the building at the property known as and numbered 45 Holyoke Street, Malden, MA and known by City Assessor’s Parcel ID # 085 408 828 and which has been determined to be a Significant Building in accordance with Section III.6 of the City of Malden Demolition and Alteration Delay Ordinance, for the purpose of making a determination whether the building is Preferably Preserved, in accordance with Section III.9 of the City of Malden Demolition and Alteration Delay Ordinance.

Earlier this year, Atria residents contributed to the art canvas together by sharing their stories and experiences of family and parenthood. Now the art canvas is installed at the Malden Senior Community Center and inspiring others WARD 2 | FROM PAGE 2 Anna Geoffroy For Anna Geoffroy, a seat on the School Committee would be an opportunity to put years of experience as a political activist to work in a new arena. A freelance graphic designer who grew up in Amherst, Geoffroy moved to Malden in 2010 and watched her two children move through the city’s school system. She feels she can put her experiences advocating for her children and coping with challenges such as transportation and school transfers to use helping other parents facing similar situations. Geoffroy said she’s been close to other School Committee members and she’s watched the committee grapple with different issues and problems. “I think being on the School Committee is one of the least appreciated and hardest jobs,” she said, adding that students and parents blame committee members for all sorts of problems. “It seemed like a rough job, and I think I could do it,” she said.

The art canthe January Coalition which organized the 2018 Boston/Cambridge Women’s March and a longtime peace activist, Geoffroy has found herself in plenty of situations where people disagree. She feels her experiences building coalitions, mediating conflicts and lobbying for change are skills that she can put to use as a member of the School Committee. Geoffroy feels curriculum should be expanded so that civics is taught at a much younger age. “We need to pay more attention to the ongoing distress students feel,” she said. “When kids see the world as a scary place, they want to understand the mechanism of how it works and which parts of government they can change.” A strong supporter of the Promise Act, Geoffroy feels Malden teachers, parents and students should understand how to lobby for changes in school funding. She supports MaldenCORE’s efforts to empower students and teachers of color, and she would like to see the district launch an LGBTQ for middle school students. She would also like to see the disvas is just one of the 100 ways Atria is inviting others to show gratitude. trict take a closer look at social and emotional learning and to focus on digital literacy and online safety. “Whatever we’re teaching our kids, it’s not enough,” she said. Geoffroy believes the district need to do more to reach out and engage parents. “There are a lot of parents who don’t feel heard, and there are places online where they meet and gripe,” she said. “I’m in those spaces and I can make sure I am available to those families.” Geoffroy also feels the district needs to improve communication with families who do not speak English. She concedes translation is expensive but adds it must be done. The district’s decision to eliminate transportation had a major impact on Ward 2 school families, and Geoffroy hopes to help neighbors find alternative solutions. She is a big proponent of families and neighbors working together to come up with adventurous solutions to problems large and small. “Campaigning has made this an interesting year for me,” she said. “I’m excited to be part of this year’s freshman class of candidates.”

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, September 27, 2019 Page 17 FORUM | FROM PAGE 1 each household a $10 fee added to water bills. Matheson said Christenson promised to get rid of the bags eight years ago but stuck with the Pay-As-You-Throw system until JRM, the city’s trash hauler, demanded changes in curbside collection that led to the new proposal. He described the new plan as an unfair tax increase that would cost residents who own two-family homes an additional $240 a year. Matheson proposed selling barrels and bins to residents at a fair-market price. But Christenson said Matheson never came through with a promised plan on how to pay JRM the millions of dollars the company charges to collect the city’s trash and recycling. “The councillor used the word plan – where is it?” asked Christenson, adding that he and his staff crafted a plan that eliminates the blue bags. “It may take us awhile, but we follow through. We never give up.” When asked about the city’s road repair program, Matheson said he would conduct a streetby-street audit to assess what every street requires for road and sidewalk repairs and tree plantings. “We should take a holistic approach,” he said. Christenson shot down that proposal, again criticizing Matheson for failing to follow up on ideas with actual plans. “He won’t do that, he would have done that by now,” said Christenson, who then asked lice officers, firefighters and teachers. Christenson said Matheson’s campaign echoed the negativity one sees on the national level. “My administration has set a positive tone with accessibility, transparency and balance, he said, adding that he is proud of Shown, from left to right, are panelists James Mitchell, publisher of The Malden Advocate, Marcia Manong of the Mass Senior Action Council, Malden High School freshman Henry Zhao and Serge Perfini of the Chamber of Commerce.

Christenson said Matheson launched the committee a couple years ago but has only held two meetings. Christenson also said Matheson’s Hospital Redevelopment Advisory Committee also languished because of a lack of leadership. Over the next 15 years, Malden expects to receive $19 million in mitigation money from the casino in Everett. Christenson criticized Matheson’s suggestions that the money could be used to buy the hospital site or to replace the city’s remaining lead pipes. He said the city needs to take a “cautionary approach” and assess its needs as the money becomes available. “That’s a classic politician’s response,” said Matheson, adding that it’s a problem when money comes into the general fund and residents don’t know where it’s going. “We need to make sure that it benefits all of us,” he added.

Despite their many disagreements, the forum revealed that the candidates did share some common ground. They agreed that the Malden River is a tremendous resource with a lot of potential to become a great community asset. The both believe the National Grid site is an opportunity for commercial development. And they both support expanding community gardens. The forum wrapped up with finals statements that gave the candidates a chance to circle back to their main campaign themes. Christenson told voters that Matheson has promised road and infrastructure improvements at no cost to residents. “If it sounds too good to be true, it is,” he said, adding, once again, that Matheson says what he’s going to do, not how he’s going to do it. He suggested that to make good on his promises, Matheson would need to cut core services and layoff poall that’s been accomplished. “We are about establishing a sense of community that defines who we are as a city.” Matheson described the mayoral race as a great opportunity because it forces candidates to be accountable to the community. “The power shifts back to the people,” he said, adding that it is important for residents to make the most of that shift. Matheson said that before the race residents didn’t hear much from Christenson about open space, affordable housing or the Malden River. He urged voters to look at a record of eight years of blue trash bags, dense apartment buildings, more traffic, millions of dollars in new fines, soaring water bills, broken roads and broken promises. “Malden needs change now,” he said. “I’m running for mayor because this is a chance for me to use all of my education, my experience and everything I’m made of to do a lot of good for a lot of people,” he said. ~ LEGAL NOTICE ~ MALDEN BOARD OF APPEAL PUBLIC HEARING The Malden Board of Appeal will hold a public hearing at the John and Christina Markey Malden Community Center, 7 Washington Street, Malden at 6:30 P.M. on Wednesday, October 16, 2019 on Petition 19-013 by Patrick P.

And who doesn’t have a story of their favorite Malden “dive bar” from the good old days?! And who also doesn’t love a comfortable place to sit around with old friends and talk about those stories from the good old days?! A place where “everybody knows your name.” Patrick’s in Maplewood Square being a prime example these days. Malden was home to many dive bars or “old men’s bars” as they are often referred to: places where working-class men and women of Malden would gather and talk out the day. Maybe share a glass or two of Ballantine Ale after a hard day’s work at Converse Rubber, developments, the Malden River is on its way to becoming a central open space amenity for all three cities. Information about the Mystic and Malden River Greenways will be displayed at the event. “Our hope is that by bringing people to the Malden River, they will recognize the value of waterfront access and become advocates for the river and future park and path improvements,” said MyRWA’s Greenways Director, Amber Christoffersen. Lewis Candies or Faulkner Mfg. (substitute Schlitz, Pickwick Ale or ’Gansett if you wish). All were unique in their own special way. Where you spent this leisure time depended on many divergent factors. Maybe it was located in your neighborhood, close to home (Salemwood, Jessells, Hole in the Wall Pub). Or possibly they served the “stiffest” drink (Morrison’s, The Highland, The Rosebud). Maybe they extended you a line of credit as you drank through your Friday paycheck (West End Bar & Grille, Richard’s Pub, Jack Haney’s). Or maybe they served the best spaghetti & meatball dinner (Tricca’s, Brandano’s, Ferrari’s). That was your bar. None had better neon, though, than the Horseshoe Bar & Grille on Exchange Street – the garish neon sign above the doorway greeting you with open arms. It was a typical watering hole of that era where drinks were cheap, the overhead kept to a minimum and Malden’s finest gathered. The Horseshoe occupied a space for many years on the opposite side of where Exchange Street Bistro now sits. From what I remember you entered the front door and immediately stepped back in time. Visualize good old-fashioned wood paneling that we all grew up with. Throw in leather booths and a time when neon ruled, and you were home sweet home. Strictly a working-class bar as most lounges were in Malden in those days. Neighborhood spaces where we gathered with companions or family members – in person, not virtually – and made friendships that were forever valued and would last deep into our lifetimes.

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, September 27, 2019 Page 19 OBITUARIES Robert C. “Bob” Burgess, Sr. A retired Superintendent of Pine Banks Park in Melrose, passed away peacefully after a lengthy illness on Sept 18th. Bob was born in Malden in 1933, the son of Henry C. and Willeva Burgess. He was raised and educated in Malden, and after completing his education, he enlisted in the US Army proudly serving as part of an allied coalition in Eastern Europe. It was here that Bob, still a teenager, would collect chocolate and other rations and make regular trips to visit children orphaned by the war in Europe. A commitment to children that would last the rest of his life. In 1957, Bob married his sweetheart, Doris G. Guevin in Stoneham, MA. They shared 62 years together as husband and wife. Soon after their marriage he began working at Pine Banks Park in Malden/Melrose. By 1983, Bob became the Superintendent. He was dedicated to the park, and loved working there until his retirement in 2002. While there, he started the Christmas tradition of the annual visit from Santa and continued to play the role for over 25 years. Also, with the help of his lifelong friend George Hallisey, he would visit children at Malden Hospital and homes around the city. He was instrumental in the Boys Scouts of America and Eagle Scout programs at Pine Banks, the Rugby Club, numerous sporting leagues of Malden and Melrose as well as the installation of the children’s playground. In addition, Bob was active with the Princemen Chorus of the Lt. Norman Prince VFW post of Melrose, and a member of the American Legion in Andover. Bob was devoted to his family, especially his grandchildren who lovingly called him Papa. He is survived by his wife of 62 years, Doris Burgess, his children, Cheryl A. Burgess of Lawrence, Scott A. Burgess of Lawrence, John M. Burgess and wife, the late Donna of Malden and Lawrence, and Stephen D. Burgess and wife Elizabeth of Londonderry, NH, and his grandchildren, James, Lilianna, and Bobby. In addition to his parents, Bob was preceded in death by his beloved son Robert C. Burgess and brother Henry “Chet” Burgess.

REDUCED PRICE! an evening of Eastern Mediterranean and Middle Eastern music at the John and Christina Markey Malden Senior Community Center (7 Washington St. in Malden) on October 4 at 7:30 p.m. United by a passion for the authentic music of this part of the world and a desire to share it, members of this band borrow from the Café Aman era in song and spirit as they offer music from Turkey, Armenia, Greece, Cyprus, and other Mediterranean and Middle Eastern influences sung in Greek, Turkish and Arabic. Burcu Güleç (vocals), Melissa Lund (oud), George Lernis (percussion), Mal Barsamian (clarinet) and Panos Aivas (kanoun) perform the complex rhythms and haunting melodies of regional music on traditional instruments. They love to unite different communities through music. You will find yourself dancing, clapping and singing along. In 2018, Muscari performed in Malden at The Gallery at 480 Main St. in Malden to a wildly enthusiastic and ethnically diverse audience. Many had never heard this style of music but were awed. The room felt electric and the audience transported. One audience member said, “I have never heard anything like this. Amazing!” Mal Barsamian (clarinet), Panos Aivas (kanoun), Burcu Güleç (vocals), Melissa Lund (oud) and George Lernis (percussion) Muscari is the kind of band that does so much more than offer music. It is five musicians who play or sing with exquisite skill, love the music they play, are generous in life and during performances and obviously care about humanity. During the 2018 concert and soon the 2019 concert on October 4, when Muscari shares music with an audience, a vibrant community full of warmth, curiosity, and excitement forms. Tickets are available online and at the door. For tickets and more information, visit thegalleryinc.com. Admission for adults is $15 and for seniors/students is $10. Members of the Malden Senior Center are eligible for a discount by contacting ose@thegalleryinc.com. For more information about the Muscari musicians, visit thegalleryinc.com. REDUCED PRICE!
