CTE OCAT AT Published Every Friday Batter Up 617-387-2200 By Steve Freker M alden had avoided the tag since the Massachusetts Department of Public Health (DPH) instituted its COVID-19 risk assessment map in mid-August. But Wednesday night, the DPH announced that Malden was among the 40 communities on the “Red” list designation this week, as the numbers nearly doubled from last week’s previous high of 23. The number of highest risk “Red” cities and towns skyrocketed 74 percent from last week’s numbers. A “Red” designation represents the highest risk number of the color-coded COVID-19 risk maps, with at least 8.0 new cases per 100,000 residents. This week Malden showed an average daily incidence rate of 10.4 cases over the past 14 days, its highest since the COVID risk map began on August 12. E Friday, October 9, 2020 Malden designated as “Red” on Mass. DPH COVID-19 risk map Among highest-to-date 40 communities listed “highest transmission risk” this week as state number soars Many communities surrounding and bordering Malden have been designated in “Red” since the map’s inception in mid-August, including Everett, Revere, Chelsea and Lynn. Saugus has been in and out of “Red,” and Medford was “Red” for two weeks in August but is now in “Yellow.” Malden city officials were scheduled to meet yesterday (after Malden Advocate press deadline) to discuss any next steps to be taken around the community to address what has transpired. To that end, Malden Mayor Gary Christenson was scheduled to host his regular COVID-19 Community Update televised program on Malden Access TV (MATV) last night, where he and Malden Health Director Chris Webb were expected to address the issue.

See photo highlights on page 12. (Advocate photo by Josh London) Mayor offers restaurant relief Proposes elimination of licensing fee to help restaurants survive Special to Th e Advocate I t is no surprise that Malden’s restaurants have suff ered tremendously during this pandemic. The impact of COVID-19 has been that it has shut out their customers for months at a time, made their patrons reluctant to return when they fi nally could and absolutely decimated their earnings and savings. And at the time of this reporting, restaurants are still not allowed to be at full occupancy, and many have spent thousands of dollars to take advantage of the city of Malden’s expanded outdoor seating program and installed state-mandated plexiglass barriers and implemented new safety protocols. The positives are that restaurants have shown an amazing resilience. As optimism starts to build across the Commonwealth that there may be light at the end of the tunnel, Mayor Gary Christenson is providing further assistance to the restaurants. In a proposal sent to the Licensing Board, he has asked for their consideration to waive the liquor licensing fees for restaurants for the upcoming year. For some restaurants, this could be a savings of $3,500 at a time when every dollar is tight and the usual annual fees would be extraordinarily burdensome. Knowing that restaurants provide hundreds of jobs, important services and social and entertainment outlets for both residents and visitors, it is a wise move for the City of Malden to step up and help them during their time of need. Malden replaces more than 200 lead water service lines despite COVID-19 By Steve Freker O ver 200 lead water service lines have been replaced to date this year, despite the challenges and restrictions faced by the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition, an innovative ordinance change fi rst initiated by Councillor-at-Large Craig Spadafora mandating the replacement of lead lines before ownership of residential or commercial parcels can take place has led to 38 more lines replaced, helping make the city even safer. The City of Malden Engineering Department in coordination with the Public Works Department recently reported the replacement of Craig Spadafora Councillor-at-Large COVID-19 | SEE PAGE 5

Page 2 THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, October 9, 2020 Malden Public Schools highest needs students return to classroom on October 13 Will be fi rst students for in-person learning of new school year By Steve Freker F or the first time since the COVID-19 pandemic forced a nationwide shutdown of school buildings in March, the doors of the Malden Public Schools will swing open on a limited basis next week. Many of Malden’s highest needs students will return to classrooms in all the schools for “live,” in-person learning on Tuesday, October 13. It will mark the fi rst time in seven months that students will be present in the district’s Gerry D’Ambrosio Attorney-at-Law Is Your Estate in Order?

There has been no timetable set at this time for the return to the in-person classroom for the bulk of the over 6,000 students enrolled in the Malden district. Malden Superintendent of Schools John Oteri told the Malden School Committee at Monday night's meeting that the move for the high needs has been in the works for months, for a number of reasons. Supt. Oteri said, most notably, that he and his central administration cabinet have been aware that educators and parents have expressed frustration at the diffi - culty high-needs students have encountered in the distance learning model. These sentiments were illustrated in a recent rally held by the citywide Special Education Parents Action Committee (SEPAC), which was attended by Superintendent Oteri, Mayor Gary Christenson, Assistant Superintendent and Special Education Director Pamela MacDonald, School Committee Members Adam Weldai and Jennifer Spadafora, SEPAC parents and others. COVID-19 pandemic led to spring remote learning switch Distance learning, also known as remote learning, supplanted traditional, in-person learning in mid-March when COVID-19 was declared a pandemic. Malden offi cials now refer to the swift changeover to remote learning, where educators teach classes through Chromebooks and laptop computers, as well as iPhones, as “crisis learning.” Over this past summer, many hours of work was put into developing a highly eff ective, much more robust remote learning plan for all seven Malden Public Schools (MPS) buildings. “We are excited about this and looking forward to having out highest needs students back,” MacDonald said. MacDonald told the School Pamela MacDonald Assistant Superintendent for Pupil Services and Special Education all students, Supt. Oteri told the School Committee. But still, the plan has remained for the highest needs students to return to in-person learning as soon as possible. Those students categorized as “high needs” include substantially separate special needs students who are intellectually and/or physically challenged and students enrolled in the Pathways alternative learning programs citywide. As of Monday night’s meeting, a total of 198 high-needs students were expected to be welcomed back to the classroom citywide on October 13.

COM pointed Assistant Superintendent MacDonald, who was formally introduced to the School Committee by Supt. Oteri at the meeting, that number represents about 72 percent of the pool of students who were deemed eligible to return to in-person learning in the highneeds group, using state Dept. of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) guidelines. Assistant Supt. MacDonald handles pupil services, including supervising the Special Education Department, which includes all of Malden’s highest needs students. A total of 275 students districtwide met the DESE criteria. This included students from Committee members that parents of the high-needs students were all contacted individually and off ered the option of coming to school in-person or staying with remote learning. “Initially, about 55 percent of the parents and caregivers chose to come back [to in-person classrooms]. There’s been a lot of movement over the past few weeks,” she said. In response to a question from Ward 3 School Committee Member Jennifer Spadafora, MacDonald confi rmed all returning high-needs students would be attending classes in their regularly assigned schools, not in a central location. “We had to shuffl e a few of the classrooms, but students will be attending class in the schools they were originally assigned.” Students will return to originally assigned buildings Supt. Oteri added the district was also advised to keep the students and their originally assigned buildings by Malden Health Department Director Chris Webb for safety reasons, based on limiting travel and maintaining social distancing. “We heard loud and clear from our Special Ed and ELL [English-language learners] parents that prefer to have their students in a classroom, and we have taken and will continue to take every precaution and action necessary to ensure the health, safety and well-being of all of our students, educators and staff members as they return to our school buildings on October 13,” Superintendent Oteri told the School Committee members.

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, October 9, 2020 Page 3 City Council approves pair of financial initiatives for new trash pickup program, park rehab project By Steve Freker T wo fi nancial initiatives were approved by Malden City Council votes at Tuesday night’s meeting that are linked to a pair of municipal projects. By a unanimous, 11-0 vote, the Council gave a nod to a key part of an ambitious, newly designed trash and recycling program forwarded by Mayor Gary Christenson. Mayor Christenson had requested approval of a $1.2 million expenditure from the city’s free cash reserves to pay for the purchase of about 30,000 hard plastic tote barrels, which would signal a dramatic change in the city’s trash and recycling pickup format. Approximately $730,000 would cover the cost of the barrels, to start up the new project. Trash, recycling paper had been tabled previously That vote came near the end of the meeting when the City Council voted to take up a tabled paper from the previous meeting, where the vote had originally been planned. City Council Finance Committee Chairman David Camell (Ward 6) explained that at the previous full City Council meeting of September 22 the city’s free cash reserve account balance had not been certifi ed by state regulators. That action had been fi nalized since the Sept. 22 meeting, according to City Council President Jadeane Sica (Ward 8), clearing the way for Tuesday’s vote. Councillor Sica also confirmed the free cash account balance was $18.6 million at this time, after that fi gure was offered up by Councillor-at-Large Craig Spadafora. After the barrels are purchased, the plan is to distribute two to every household in Malden opting to participate. One of the 35-gallon barrels would be used for regular trash and the other would be used for recyclable items. Gary Christenson Mayor Residents will have option of an annual fee, or continuing “blue bags” PAYT An annual fee, not yet determined, would be charged for use of the trash pickup barrel by the residents. Residents who choose to continue disposing of their trash through use of the “blue bags” would be allowed to do so as well. The individual bags, through a system known as Pay As You Throw (PAYT), in place since 2008, are purchased in local stores. It is $2.00 for a large bag and $1.00 for a smaller bag. “The city has been in search of a solution for years that would balance the needs of those who fi nd the current program to be eff ective while providing an option for those who do not want it,” City Council President Sica said in an online report. “I believe this approach truly has something for every constituent in the city.” City Council approves request for park rehab loan application In a vote held earlier in the meeting, the City Council voted 8-3 in favor of a request to allow the Malden Redevelopment Authority (MRA) to apply for a $1.2 million Section 108 loan from the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to complete the funding for the Roosevelt Park Improvement Project. City Council Finance Committee Chairman Camell told the members the request was favorably approved by a 4-2 vote of the committee at its September 26 meeting. Only two Councillors spoke about the report at Tuesday’s meeting. Councillor Camell recapped the previous week’s Finance Committee meeting. “We had a healthy conversation about the project, with most of the Councillors in attendance,” Camell said. “Most of the discussion was on the fi nances of the project and debt service on this loan, which would be a small impact on city fi nances, at $90,000 annually beginning in 2022.” Ward 4 Councillor Ryan O’Malley, who voted against the loan request, said, “I think there would be a better way to remediate the site. I will vote in opposition, but it’s not for or against the kids.” “I appreciate all the hard work which has been done on both sides of this issue,” Councillor O’Malley added. Park rehabilitation is main issue, Councillor says “The main driver of this issue is the much-needed remediation of this fi eld, and this project is the most plausible, feasible solution,” said Camell, referring to the plan which includes the installation of an artifi cial turf surface fi eld Roosevelt Park, in addition to a list of improvements and actions which address drainage and soil contamination issues. Camell also cited letters that were read by City Clerk Greg Lucey during the public comment portion of the meeting. A total of 15 letters were read and all 15 expressed support for the Roosevelt Park Improvement Project, urging Councillors to continue TRASH | SEE PAGE 10 AUTOTECH 1989 SINCE CA$H FOR YOUR CAR!

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, October 9, 2020 Page 5 Many Greater Boston colleges able to keep COVID threat at bay By Christopher Roberson D uring the opening weeks of the fall semester, the majority of colleges and universities in Greater Boston have been able to shield themselves from the affl ictions of the COVID-19 pandemic. Katherine Gianni, spokesperson for Boston University, said approximately 200,000 COVID-19 tests were administered during the past 10 weeks. “Generally, things are going very well and we’re pleased with the success of our screening, testing, contact tracing and other measures to limit and contain the spread of the virus,” she said. “By and large, our students are complying with the commitments and expectations they have agreed to.” Joseph O’Connell, spokesperson for Regis College, said a “limited number” of students, faculty and staff returned to campus last month, thereby keeping the number of positive cases under control. “They are adhering to a strict and robust return protocol that includes weekly testing and required mask wearing, among other measures,” he said. “We are pleased with how the semester has gone so far and continue to monitor the spread of the virus.” Daniel Magazu, spokesperson for Framingham State University, said there have only been a few minor hiccups since the semester began. “Students, faculty and staff have done a good job overall of following our safety guidelines around face coverings, social distancing and avoiding large gatherings,” he said. “We have not had any major student disciplinary issues to this point. We’ve followed up on reports of small student gatherings off campus, but nothing has risen to the level of a major disciplinary issue.” Magazu also said the university’s positive test rate has been well below the state average at 0.61 percent during the past 30 days. At Emerson College, spokesperson Rosemary Lavery said the college is utilizing its Campus Compact and the One Emerson Flex Learning Model for the fall semester. “The college has worked closely with our community members to ensure they understand the importance of following the Campus Compact, which outlines the health and safety guidelines that will ensure the safety of those on and surrounding campus,” she said. “We are confi - dent our community takes these new protocols seriously.” Kimberly Allen, spokesperson for the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), said the school has reported an “extremely low prevalence” of COVID-19. Although strict penalties are in place for any violations, Allen said, such action has not been necessary thus far. “The vast majority of our students are committed to acting responsibly to ensure their safety and the safety of their peers and neighbors,” she said. However, that has not been the case everywhere as 11 freshmen from Northeastern University were found in the same room at the Westin Hotel in Copley Square. As a result, those students were dismissed from the university for the remainder of the semester and their tuition fees will not be refunded. “Northeastern takes violations of health and safety protocols very seriously,” said Madeleine Estabrook, senior vice chancellor of student aff airs. “Cooperation and compliance with public health guidelines is absolutely essential. Those who do not follow the guidelines are putting everyone else at risk.” Estabrook also issued a stern warning at the beginning of the fall term. “Students who attend an unsafe gathering, social or Cummings Properties, D&G Industries donate $1K to MVES Alzheimer’s Caregiver Support Group C ummings Properties recently donated $1,000 to Mystic Valley Elder Services (MVES) through a unique giving program that honors colleagues, long-term clients and tenants, and other select associates of the Cummings organization, by contributing $1,000 to the local charity of their choice.

In one Merrimack College residence hall, 47 students tested positive for the virus. The school’s president, Dr. Christopher Hopey, said the building was closed and its 266 residents were moved into isolation. However, additional test results showed that the virus was confi ned to that particular residence hall. “We are optimistic that the campus can stay open and fully operational,” said Hopey. He also defended his reason to invite students back to campus rather than putting the entire semester online. “There are those who will argue the best way to minimize COVID-19 spread is not to have students on campus, but we felt that choice was and still is very harmful to our students, their mental health and their educational progress,” said Hopey. “Merrimack is an anchor organization in the Merrimack Valley and thousands of people are dependent on us being open, being safe and being present.” Lawrence A.

Under a 2017 Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (MassDEP) Consent Order, the city is required to complete 150 full replacements per year. “I want to commend Glenn Calla in the City Engineering Department and John DeSantis in the Water Department for not only meeting but exceeding the MassDEP requirements,” said Mayor Gary Christenson. “It was their commitment to remain proactive in moving our replacement program forward despite this year’s challenges due to COVID-19 that helped meet our goals.” The city has implemented several strategies to address lead water service lines, including the ordinance introduced by Councillor Spadafora requiring any residential/ commercial buildings with private-side lead water lines to have the lines replaced prior to transfer of ownership via sale. In addition, a Lead Pipe Replacement Program initiated from the Mayor's Offi ce includes scheduled pipe replacement by city crews as well as city contractors, with the goal being to expedite the elimination of all lead service lines in the shortest possible amount of time.

Following the filing of Notice of Intent to Demolish a Building by the property owner, Alpha Business Center, the application was referred to the Commission for review as required by the recently passed Demolition and Alteration Delay Ordinance.

The boutique community yoga studio was founded in 2016 in Lynn by Shanel Anderson, who aimed to address the lack of diversity in the boutique fi tness universe. “My mission is to dissolve and dismantle the westernized image of who yoga is ‘for’ by creating an all-inclusive environment that welcomes and sees the value in all people,” said Anderson. “I believe strongly that community is strengthened by celebrating the beauty of diversity and the value of representation.” Soul City’s mission is centered around the idea that yoga and wellness should be accessible to all and is a safe space for practitioners of all levels and abilities. Partner Sara Bailey joined the business in 2019 and together they are moving their mission forward. “We are so excited to be a part of the Malden community,” said Women of Junior Aid support Malden, Washington, residents T he City of Malden, along with Fire Chief Bill Sullivan, initiated an eff ort to assist the small town of Malden, Washington, which has been completely decimated by horrific fi res. They realized the connection between our two communities as noted in Wikipedia and wanted to help – it turns out that Malden, Washington, was initially a railroad station named after our very own Malden, Massachusetts. They established a contact on the West Coast through their Lions Club Chapter and reached out to the Malden Lions Club to assist. Chief Sullivan reached out to Mayor Gary Christenson, who was completely on board with the initiative, issued a press release and posted the initiative on the City’s social media outlet with the hope of getting each of the 210 residents of the devastated town of Malden, Washington, a $25.00 gift card. Mayor Gary Christenson was on hand to celebrate the recent grand opening of Soul City Yoga.

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, October 9, 2020 Page 9 Malden’s Neighbors Helping Neighbors continue to assist most vulnerable residents City Councillors grateful for help volunteer group provides across the community By Steve Freker T heir recollections were illuminating, stark and often poignant. “We get calls from young mothers at 3 a.m. in the morning who are completely overwhelmed because they are down to their last diaper... “...Or the sweet, elderly woman who called and all she was asking for was just $6.00 so she could make the co-pay on her medication...” These and other stories were shared to the members of the Malden City Council at Tuesday night's meeting by Anna Geoffrey and Kit Bridge, cofounders of a growing network of homegrown volunteers called Malden Neighbors Helping Neighbors. Born out of the chaos of need and affliction caused by the COVID-19 pandemic in March, the organization has worked basically nonstop since then, helping Malden residents with many forms of assistance. “The people we are helping are real people,” Geoff rey said simply, to describe their mission: “They are our neighbors.” Geoff rey and Bridge reported that since March they have responded to 540 requests for help ranging from groceries to pharmacy/medications to cleaning supplies, PPE and personal items. The most consistent need, Bridge said, is in the battle against food insecurity. “We provide a weekly food drop-off for 132 households every week,” she explained. That number often goes up as well, she recalled: “On a recent Friday we delivered food to 215 households.” Elsewhere in Malden, Bread of Life delivers food to 87 households a week and 47 are serviced by the Malden YMCA’s program. “The need is defi nitely increasing; no one is asking to be dropped from our list, and we are adding people every day,” Geoff rey said. The group, which is not registered as a nonprofi t, runs entirely on monetary donations from the general public. “We have been fortunate; there are a lot of generous people in our community,” Bridge said. Bridge said a major problem in the city is those who are unhoused. “Malden has no homeless shelter, which makes it extremely diffi cult for those who are unhoused to access benefi ts they may be entitled to,” Bridge added. “They all have such complicated stories.” The group needs all the help they can get, and the two cofounders asked the Councillors to help spread the word. Most needed are more delivery drivers for the weekly food drop-off s, and also legal assistance for those facing eviction or other forced moves. Any local lawyers who could off er pro bono assistance are in dire need by those looking for help. Translators are another need, they said, especially those in Haitian Creole, Portuguese and Spanish. Those wishing to volunteer or donate to Neighbors Helping Neighbors are encouraged to visit the website at www.maldenneighbors.org. “Thank you so much for all you are doing,” said Councillor-at-Large Debbie DeMaria, who has personally joined the group in assisting Malden citizens, including well-being check phone calls to shut-in seniors. “We got together and called hundreds of senior citizens during the pandemic these past few months. That might have been their only phone call. They really need this help and attention.” “Every single Councillor appreciates your eff orts,” DeMaria added. “We are all moved by the dedication of all that you’re doing,” Ward 7 Councillor Neal Anderson said. “You’re down at the grassroots.” “Thanks for doing this critical work,” said Councillor-at-Large Steve Winslow, noting that he continues to represent the City Council on the Aff ordable Housing Trust, which seeks solutions to those displaced or homeless in the longer term. “We went through one round of rental assistance and are looking at expanding it. Please continue to keep us updated on your great work.” Veterans Day virtual parade videos wanted W ith Veterans Day on the horizon and as the COVID-19 pandemic has not gone away, it has become clear that the prospect of having a traditional in-person Veterans Day Parade is not possible. Building from the success of the Memorial Day virtual parade video, the City of Malden has decided to do something similar for Veterans Day. The City is asking all people who are either actively serving or former members of the armed services to fi lm a short video clip to be submitted for the City’s video. When submitting your video, please do the following: ▪ Have the Veteran or active duty service person themselves be the one to deliver the message; ▪ Announce name, service branch and current/former rank, and if active service where currently serving; ▪ Announce something about the person’s connection to Malden, whether saying what neighborhood the person is from, shout-out to someone back home, year they graduated from a Malden school, etc. – something that really says “Malden!”; ▪ Keep the entire video 30 seconds or less as the City anticipates a lot of videos to be included. You may submit all videos either by emailing info@cityofmalden.org or messaging facebook.com/cityofmalden to receive instructions on how to upload your video.

Page 10 THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, October 9, 2020 Malden has plenty of early voting hours for residents as Nov. 3 Election Day nears Malden Senior Center hosts early voting from October 17-30 R ~ Guest Commentary ~ Malden’s recycling audit reveals challenges epresentatives from the City of Malden recently By Steve Freker M alden voters will have plenty of options to cast their ballots early if they choose, as the November 3 Election Day nears. The General Election this year has an early voting period which runs from Saturday, October 17 until Friday, October 30. All those wishing to participate in either early voting, voting by mail, or in person – traditionally – on November 3 must be registered to vote. The deadline to register to vote in this election is October 24 and it may be done online or by mail, with instructions available on the city’s website, www.cityofmalden.org. There is much interest anticipated for the coming election, which features the 2020 Presidential Election between incumbent Republican President Donald Trump and Democratic challenger Joe Biden. Also on the ballot, in addition to state and Congressional races, is the U.S. Senate election between incumbent Ed Markey, D-Mass., a Malden resident, and Republican challenger Kevin O’Connor, an attorney and businessman from Dover. Malden City Clerk Greg Lucey this week announced the location and hours of the city's early voting for the Oct. 17-30 period. All early voting in Malden will take place at Malden’s John and Christina Markey Malden Senior Community Center (7 Washington St., Malden). Early voting will be available seven days a week during the Oct. 17-30 period. On Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 17-18 and again on Oct. 24-25, early voting will be held from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. On Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, Oct. 19, 21, 22, 26, 28 and 29, early voting at the Senior Center will be held from 8:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m. On Tuesdays, Oct. 20 and Oct. 27, early voting will be held from 8:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m. On Fridays, Oct. 23 and 30, early voting will be from 8:00 a.m. until noon. participated in a recycling audit at JRM’s GreenWorks facility in Peabody, Mass. The purpose of the audit was to visually examine a sampling of recycling collected from one of Malden’s collection routes. As the representatives from the City observed, more than half of the recycling that was brought in that day was rejected for a variety of reasons. From plastic bags to Styrofoam, food waste to dog waste, Malden has been missing the mark when it comes to clean recycling. But when it comes to determining the source of this contamination, the answer lies deeper than the occasional careless disposal of a sloppily rinsed jar of peanut butter. When asked about what or who might be responsible for this, Mayor Gary Christenson points out that there are definitely many pieces of the blame pie to be dished out. “We’ve heard from our residents that they just don’t understand why this has suddenly become a problem when JRM has been accepting recycling bins without issue for over a decade.” Take, for instance, one of the more common items that can trip up even the most conscientious recycler: milk and broth cartons. These plastic-lined cartons, which are also known as aseptic cartons, have the appearance of a purely paper product, but many recycling facilities, including GreenWorks, are unable to strip away the plastic liner to fully recycle the material. “In the case of many of these materials that were once accepted by JRM, the answer lies in the dwindling market for recycled raw materials,” said Christenson, referring to a worldwide decline in the demand for these raw materials. Another common mistake seen on the curbs of Malden’s recycling routes is not contained in the blue bin itself but in the form of plastic bags, presumably to contain the overflow of the 18-gallon City-issued blue recycling bin. Another case where residents’ intentions are good, but the outcome is bad – these plastic bags tangle the sorting machines and bring the entire recycling plant to grinding halt. “It is clear that we have to make some big changes in order to fix this problem,” said DPW Director Bobby Knox, who manages the relationship with Malden’s trash and recycling hauler, JRM. Residents are frustrated, perplexed and in some cases infuriated with what seems to be the City frequently changing its rules and procedures time and time again. This is evidenced in many heated debates on social media platforms. Fortunately for the residents of Malden, two recent initiatives might help this uphill battle. The first is a recently awarded grant of $40,000 from the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection – called the Recycling IQ Grant – which was obtained by Mayor Christenson’s office late in 2019 and runs through the end of October 2020. The goal of this program is to combine an extensive outreach campaign with a boots-on-the-ground effort to give residents feedback right at the curb. Part-time employees travel the JRM route on trash day and leave informative stickers and literature to explain the issues in detail. In many cases, these workers are even stopping on their route to have extendTRASH | FROM PAGE 3 to support the plan. Several of the letters in favor of the Roosevelt Park rehab plan were from supporters of the Salemwood School, which is adjacent to the park, and its students. Included were Malden Public Schools Athletics and Physical Education Department Director Charlie Conefrey. “It would be a disservice to our community and to the Salemwood School students not to support this plan,” Conefrey stated conversations with residents who are looking for a more detailed explanation for what’s going wrong. The second and most significant initiative is in the form of an entirely new trash and recycling program proposed by Mayor Christenson. In a letter sent to the City Council in early September, he stated his longstanding goal to overhaul Malden’s Pay as You Throw (PAYT) program. The proposal calls for all residents who participate in PAYT to receive one 35-gallon trash tote as well as one 35-gallon recycling tote, which will replace the standard two 18-gallon blue bins that residents are currently using. The new totestyle bins will be wheeled carts that have a lid to prevent what has been a common problem of litter caused by items blowing out of the top of the existing open-topped blue bins. “I am really pleased that not only were we able to finally deliver on a longstanding promise of improving the PAYT program but also that it was done with an extensive amount of resident feedback,” said Mayor Christenson. During the implementation of this new program, the City’s Communications Director, Ron Cochran, intends to run an extensive outreach and education program that will be made available in multiple languages. “Over the years we have been building up our communication strategy around our solid waste program. From online tools to social media advertising campaigns and more, we are committed to getting the word out there to help our residents navigate this large-scale change successfully,” said Cochran. If approved by the City Council, residents could see this program launch as early as late fall/ early winter. ed. “This plan would provide a clean, safe and well-maintained park for thousands of youths for years to come.” In the final 8-3 vote, Councillors Neal Anderson (Ward 7), Camell, Paul Condon (Ward 2), Peg Crowe (Ward 1), Barbara Murphy (Ward 5), City Council President Sica, Craig Spadafora (at Large) and Steve Winslow (at Large) voted in favor of allowing for the loan application. Opposed were Councillors Debbie DeMaria (at Large), Amanda Linehan (Ward 3) and O’Malley (Ward 4).

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, October 9, 2020 Page 11 Revere says goodbye to Hollywood Showcase Cinemas to become city’s second Amazon distribution site By The Advocate National Amusements, Inc. has entered into an agreement for the sale of its Showcase Cinemas site on Squire Road to Northbridge Partners, a Massachusetts-based investment firm. Northbridge Partners reportedly has plans to lease the site to Amazon, a well-known, multinational e-commerce retailer. According to their attorney, Gerry D’Ambrosio, Northbridge Partners plans to build a stateof-the-art, last-mile delivery station at the Squire Road site that will effectively function as an extension of Amazon’s new facility housed at the former Necco factory in the City of Revere. The plan is for the existing movie theatre building to be razed and replaced with a new, multi-million dollar facility, which will result in a smaller building footprint than the current movie theatre footprint and a reduced traffic flow. The city expects to see increased tax revenue from the project.D’Ambrosio estimates that, “the tax for the new building will likely be three times what it is now, and that City auto excise tax revenue will also jump as Amazon will register their vehicles there as well.This will only help keep the residential tax rate lower.”Additionally, the new distribution facility will likely bring hundreds of new jobs to the city.Overall, D’Ambrosio said, “the proposed facility will result in incredibly valuable economic growth for the City, not only in job creation, but also in increased tax revenue and permit fees.” “We are working closely with engineering and other consultants to design a plan for the facility that is in line with the city’s as-of-right zoning and which will result in a modern, well-designed building,” said D’Ambrosio They are also actively seeking the input of city of officials to develop a cohesive plan that is mindful of the concerns of and potential impacts to the city. The sale and transfer of property will likely go on record by this year’s end.Construction on the new facility will likely start in early 2021. “National Amusements, Inc. can confirm that it has signed an agreement for the potential sale of our Showcase Cinemas de Lux Revere site to Northbridge Partners, a Massachusetts-based developer.Showcase Cinemas is deeply committed to our Massachusetts and U.S. theatrical exhibition business,” said National Amusement officials in a written statement. “We have been a business leader in the Revere community for more than a half century. As part of looking towards the future, we continue to focus on the development, design and evolution of the theatrical experience through the opening of our new Showcase Cinema de Lux at Hanover Crossing in 2021. We also are diligently looking at potential new sites for future Showcase Cinemas locations, including in the Revere area.” Developer and investor NorthBridge Partners has spent the last 15 years focusing on lastmile industrial properties in major markets in the Northeast US. The vertically integrated firm has been successful in its core strategy, targeting small-to-midsized industrial properties with a value-add components such as asset repositioning, modernizing, tenant relocations, building expansions, or ground-up development. Since 2015, it has invested in 30 properties totaling $450 million in value. The emergence of next-day and sameday delivery have underscored the firm’s acquisition philosophy: delivery time has an impact on consumer purchases. Northbridge has seen companies seek industrial assets close to major metros to achieve those delivery goals and cut transportation costs.

According to Amazon, the appearance of the building will be in line with that of the Amazon LastMile Distribution facilities and will be similar to this rendering.

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, October 9, 2020 Page 13 MHS kicker football standout shines at national level Kicking Camp Ronald Juarez booms 57-yarder; finishes 4th of 60 kickers at Chris Sailer Camp The Coronavirus Count State reports 64 new confirmed Malden COVID-19 cases; city at “high risk” with state’s 20th highest rate over last 14 days T he state Department of Public Health (DPH) reported 64 new COVID-19 cases in Malden this week, raising the total to 1,597 confirmed cases. As a result, the city’s incidence rate of new cases per 100,000 over the period of Sept. 20 through Oct. 3 jumped to 10.4, making it one of the state’s 40 “high risk” communities for COVID-19 – and the 20th highest overall, according to DPH statistics released on Wednesday (Oct. 7). This marked the first time that Malden High School junior Ronald Juarez finished 4th of 60 kickers at a national-level kicking camp for high school players recently, booming a 57-yard field goal. The winning kick went for 59 yards. (Courtesy Photo/Malden HS Athletics) By Nick Toscani R onald Juarez certainly got a kick out of attending the Chris Sailer Camp at Dexter Southfield School in Boston. The COVID-19 pandemic may have put this high school football on ice for the time being, but that has not stopped the Malden High School junior from showing his skills on a national level. Juarez, one of the heroes of last Thanksgiving’s Turkey Day win over Medford High in Game #136, was one of the top performers at the September 18 event. The Golden Tornadoes booter, who was the first Malden player to kick a field goal for the Blue and Gold in a Thanksgiving win since the 1960s, boomed a 57yard field goal at the camp. That feat led him to a 4th place finish out of 60 kickers who attended the event. The winner, Chris Brasius from Maryland, nailed a 59-yarder, leaving Juarez very close to the top. “That was a fantastic accomplishment, but we are not that surprised knowing how much work Ronald [Juarez] puts into his craft,” Malden Public Schools Physical Education and Athletics Department Director Charlie Conefrey said. “He is extremely talented and we feel fortunate that we have him on our team for two more seasons.” Due to COVID-19 restrictions, Malden joined the rest of the Greater Boston League (GBL) in moving all Fall Sports to the newly created “Fall 2” season, which will run from February 22 to April 25, 2021. Juarez helped lead the Malden team to a 29-0 win over Medford on the road at Hormel Stadium in Medford on Thanksgiving 2019. He hit a 37-yard field goal just before halftime to stake Malden to a 9-0 lead and make it a two-score game. He also went 2-for-2 in PAT kicks in the second half. “He’s a hard worker and the sky’s the limit for Ronald. We are very proud of his success,” Conefrey added. Juarez, who can be seen kicking around several of the parks around the city throughout the week, is returning to a familiar site on Sunday, October 18 when he participates in another prestigious national-level camp hosted by Kicking World at Hormel Stadium in Medford. “I want to kick for a college team, and this is the best way I can get some good exposure,” Juarez said. “I get a lot of support from my teammates, Coach Frek and the Malden High coaches and Mr. Conefrey, and I will keep working to get to my goals.” Malden was colored red on the state map used to measure the metrics of COVID-19. The highest bracket includes communities with a rate of 8 new cases or greater per 100,000 over a 14day period. This week’s top “red” communities included Middleton (58.1), Lawrence (35.2), North Andover (34.5), Nantucket (23.3), Chelsea (22.4), Sunderland (20.7), Haverhill (20.0), Everett (19.3), Revere (17.8), Amherst (16.8), Lowell (16.3), Methuen (15.5), Springfield (14.6), Southborough (13.2) and Framingham (12.8). Malden had the 43rd highest rate in the state last week. For several weeks, Malden had been in the yellow-coded category on the state COVID-19 map, the designation for communities with a daily average of 4 or more, but fewer than 8 cases per 100,000. The most recent statistics showed 35,734 city residents have been tested for the virus so far – including 5,762 over the past 14 days. Of those tested, there were 107 confirmed cases of the virus for a positivity rate of 1.86 percent during that time. That is nearly twice the average state positivity rate of 1.04 percent. Last week’s positivity rate was 1.15 percent. That was more than the average state positivity rate of .87 percent. Just six weeks ago, Malden had dropped from “yellow” into the “green” category – the lower risk designation for communities with a daily average of fewer than 4 cases per 100,000 over a 14-day period.

Education training organization looks to bolster virtual learning By Christopher Roberson T he Boston-based education training organization 1647 recently launched its annual fundraising campaign to improve the relationship between teachers and families at a time when it is most critical. Director Ann Walsh said the objective this year is to raise $5,000 by the end of December. If that goal is reached, an anonymous donor has pledged to match that amount to bring the total up to $10,000. Anyone interested in making a donation can do so at www.1647. org/donate. “School and home are one in the same right now,” said Walsh. “You can’t do school without families.” She said that thus far virtual learning has been both a “blessing and a challenge.” “There’s so many little moves you have to make for virtual learning to work,” she said. “Everybody is well-beyond capacity; everyone I know is exhausted.” Therefore, 1647 will be hosting a virtual Family Engagement Roundtable on October 22 from 4-5 p.m. “You really want to be laser focused,” said Walsh. “You don’t want to waste time on anything right now.” She also said that all of her coaches are parents themselves. “We’re able to give really authentic training,” she said. Examples of that training include simulating parent-teacher conferences, welcome phone calls and various other forms of ongoing communication. “Educators need tools and strategies to build relationships with families so that they can collaborate to ensure every student’s success,” said Walsh. “Families know their kids best and want them to succeed, so schools need to tap into that energy and expertise to fill some of the gaps created by remote learning. Teachers are working incredibly hard to reach their students and families and we want to support them with strategies that work.”

Without him, frankly, I’d be lost.” Marty “Mcllroy” Murphy was another guy Mike wanted to single out – says Marty is an inspiration to him, on and off the course. Mike also wanted to emphasize the love and respect he has for the Italian Club and IACC Boss of Bosses Jimmy Cahill. Although he looks forward to spanking Jimmy and the rest of the boyos from the IACC once a year, he knows that they are a bunch of “stand up guys and men of integrity.” He also wanted to reemphasize that he looks forward to this day (and beating Stinger) like an “eight-year-old on Christmas morning.” Long live Malden’s newest dynasty, AOH! Congrats, guys! “It is said in Malden: today, tomorrow and yesterday...” • In the “It’s a small world department...” I’ve been enjoying an engaging repartee with Malden High School Superintendent John Oteri lately. I did not know John growing up – he was a bit younger – but I knew his little Y gang that he ran with. We knew all the same set of Y characters: Earl the Pearl and Popcorn to name but a few. Probably saw him a thousand times in the old days, but hey, ya can’t know everybody. Take it away, John: “So I graduated in 1982 but I was at the Y from 1973 onward. When I went into fourth grade my mother said you’re not hanging out on the street, go to the Y! I stayed there through college, so I was one of the viewers (from the balcony) when your crew and the ‘older guys’ were playing. I played with Glenn Patterson, Bobby Trodden, Ed Keenan, Joe ‘The Beast’ Bettano, Karl and Eric Whitley and older guys that were friends of ours or older siblings like any of the Rogers brothers, Eddie Thomson, Gary Lee, Eric Dannenberg, Steve Powell, Kenny Miz, etc. But we hung out there all the time as we weren’t into the party scene at the time! Great times. Earl the Pearl was a legend! Great guy. I was a Y leader, so I was there a lot and had lots of hoop time – unfortunately it never translated into a career in hoops!” Thanks for sharing, John! Great job at MHS, by the way! • The Ninth Annual Ryder Cup was played on Saturday, September 19 between the Ancient Order of Hibernians and the Italian American Citizens Club. Not an IACC dry eye on the course as the all-powerful and almighty AOH took another round with the series now standing at four wins for the IACC, three wins for the AOH with two ties. While it may have been a day of sorrow for the IACC, this one verbal exchange between IACC teammates made the day a lot brighter.

Famous Ronnie Small quote as told by Danny Gardner: One summer morning long ago when Danny and Dave Pashoian were little Linden Projects Rats (older Linden Projects Rat) Ronnie came up to them and quietly asked them, “What’s the capital of Malden?” The youngsters quizzically looked at each other, shook their heads and replied that they had no idea.

This week Beacon Hill Roll Call reports on how local legislators voted on some of the bills that were approved by the Legislature and signed into law by Gov. Charlie Baker in the 2020 session. Of the more than 6,000 bills that have been filed for consideration, only 178 have been approved and signed by the governor. And only 28 of those were bills that affect the entire state while the vast majority were either sick leave banks, local land-taking measures or other local-related measures applying to just one city or town. Of those 28 bills, 13 were related directly to the COVID-19 virus and 15 were on other matters. Sick leave banks allow public employees to voluntarily donate sick, personal or vacation days to a sick leave bank for use by a fellow worker so he or she can get paid while on medical leave. Land takings are local land measures that usually only affect one city or town. Here are six of the statewide bills signed into law: BREAKFAST AFTER THE BELL (H 4896) House 158-0, Senate 35-0, approved a law designed to boost participation rates in school breakfast programs in high-poverty schools. The measure would require that breakfast be offered only after the school day begins, through a variety of ways including breakfast in the classroom, grab-andgo and second-chance breakfast. Currently, only 150,000 of the 300,000 students eligible for breakfast actually take part in it. Supporters said that most school breakfasts are currently offered in the cafeteria before the bell and the participation rate is less than 40 percent of eligible students because bus schedules and family obligations often result in the student not being able to arrive at school in time for breakfast. Participation is also low because of the stigma attached to the program. They said many students assume that everyone who arrives at school early for breakfast is from a poor family. The participation rate rises to up to 90 percent of eligible students participating in the lunch program later in the day. “Pre-pandemic, this bill made a lot of sense,” said Rep. Andy Vargas (D-Haverhill), co-sponsor of the bill. “In many ways, Breakfast After the Bell makes even more sense now. There are more families and students and need. School districts are being asked to limit cafeteria use to prevent the virus from spreading. Districts are short on revenue. Breakfast After the Bell speaks to all of these concerns and I look forward to its implementation and outcomes for educational equity.” “Ensuring breakfast access to all children who need it in our public schools was a priority pre-COVID-19 and is now more important than ever,” said the measure’s co-sponsor Rep. Aaron Vega (D-Holyoke). “Many districts have already implemented Breakfast After the Bell, including Holyoke, and are seeing the positive impact on school attendance, classroom engagement and a reduction in nurse visits.” “Studies show that something as simple as eating a healthy breakfast significantly improves student performance throughout the school day,” said House Education Committee Chair Rep. Alice Peisch (D-Wellesley). “This bill will bolster participation in school breakfast programs across the commonwealth by allowing students to access this critical meal after the day begins, breaking down barriers associated with traditional breakfast programs such as lack of early transportation to school and associated social stigma.” (A “Yes” vote is for the bill.) Rep. Paul DonatoYes Rep. Steven Ultrino Yes Sen. Jason LewisYes PROTECT DISABLED PERSONS – NICKY’S BILL (S 2367) House 154-0, Senate 40-0, approved a law that established a registry that identifies individuals who have been found to have committed abuse against persons with disabilities. The measure was filed by Sen. Mike Moore (D-Millbury) at the request of a constituent who is the mother of Nicky, an intellectually disabled and non-verbal individual. Nicky had been inappropriately restrained and struck multiple times by her caretaker. Under current law, unless the offender is criminally convict

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, October 9, 2020 Page 15 ed, no system exists to identify caretakers and prevent them from finding employment with another provider licensed by the state. “Enacting this registry will help disrupt a cycle of abuse of individuals with disabilities and put in place common-sense protections that families in the commonwealth deserve,” said Sen. Moore. “There are clear benefits to screening prospective employees who intend to work within the licensed caretaker field." (A “Yes” vote is for the bill.) Rep. Paul DonatoYes Rep. Steven Ultrino Yes Sen. Jason LewisYes $1 BILLION-PLUS INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY BOND (H 4932) House 155-4, Senate 39-0, approved a $1 billion-plus information technology bond titled “An Act Financing the General Governmental Infrastructure of the Commonwealth.” The state borrows the funds to finance the projects in the package. “We are pleased to have worked closely with the Legislature to sign this bill into law and continue investing in information technology improvements, public safety upgrades and food security across the commonwealth,” said Gov. Baker. “We are continuing to support critical capital investments that modernize our technology infrastructure and allow us to deliver effective and reliable government services for the people of Massachusetts during the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic.” “The Legislature is using a new tactic, which is to borrow money in hopes the public doesn’t catch on,” said Paul Craney, Executive Director of the Massachusetts Fiscal Alliance. “If this package was funded through tax hikes, there would have been a more robust debate for how to pay for it. Many of the election year pet project earmarks would have been left out. Unfortunately, lawmakers know the public doesn’t pay attention to state debt, so they were able to add more debt to the most indebted state in the country.” Hundreds of provisions in the bill include massive state projects including $165 million for state telecommunications and data-security-related equipment; $140 million for the purchase and implementation of information technology, telecommunications and data-security-related items for various state agencies; $1.25 million for information technology upgrades for the House of Representatives; $40 million to replace State Police cruisers; and $20 million for policy body cameras. Rep. Paul DonatoYes Rep. Steven Ultrino Yes Sen. Jason LewisYes IMPROVEMENTS TO LOCAL AND REGIONAL PUBLIC HEALTH SYSTEM (H 4503) House 149-0, (Senate on a voice vote without a roll call), approved a law to improve the delivery of public health services through enhanced collaboration between local boards of health and regional health districts. A key provision creates a State Action for Public Health Excellence Program to encourage boards of health and regional health districts to adopt practices that will improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the delivery of local public health services. The program would also provide grants to improve these health systems and requires not less than 33 percent of the grants go to cities and towns with a median household income below the state average. Other provisions include the state providing at least four annual free public health educational and training opportunities to boards of health and regional health district officials; and setting minimum standards for local public health services. Each of the state’s 351 cities and towns has its own board of health which is designed to ensure many health-related items including food safety in restaurants, response to public health emergencies, housing code violations and water quality at beaches and pools. Cities and towns have vastly different staffing levels and most small towns lack a full-time staff. “Public health departments of the 351 communities of the commonwealth deal with issues seen and unseen across a wide range, from water quality and effective sanitation to substance use disorders and suicide prevention,” said the bill’s co-sponThe package also includes hundreds of local projects successfully sought by individual legislators for their districts including $500,000 for New Bedford’s Buttonwood Park Zoological Society’s infrastructure improvements for the animal ambassador and nature connection education center projects; $61,200 to update the town hall conference room’s streaming technology for the local cable services in Stoughton; $15,000 for Medfield for the implementation of an electronic payroll program; and $1 million for Everett for electronic learning devices for all Everett students and virtual professional development, training and remote learning support for their teachers. (A "Yes" vote is for the bill. A “No” vote is against it.) sor Rep. Denise Garlick (D-Needham). “These are the issues and concerns of the quality of life in Massachusetts. This bill is vitally important and timely given our current concerns over emergency preparedness with infectious diseases such as … [the coronavirus].” “This legislation will work toward ensuring each resident of the commonwealth has access to the public health services they need to live a healthy life, regardless of their zip code or the size of their community,” said co-sponsor Rep. Hannah Kane (R-Shrewsbury). “[The bill] will significantly strengthen our local and regional health systems by tackling many of the financial and operational burdens municipalities face.” (A “Yes” vote is for the bill.) Rep. Paul DonatoYes Rep. Steven Ultrino Yes HELP CITY AND TOWN GOVERNMENTS (H 4777) House 156-0, (Senate on a voice vote without a roll call), approved a law that would lower the number of voters needed at an open town meeting in order to have a quorum. Other provisions include allowing virtual representative town meetings to be held online and allowing towns to hold town meetings outside the geographic limits of the town if the select board determines that it is not possible to conduct town meetings within the geographic limits of the town that ensures health and safety. Another key section allows a mayor who is unable to submit an annual budget for fiscal year 2021 to the city council within 170 days after his or her inauguration to submit the budget to the city council within 30 days after the termination of the governor’s declaration of emergency, or on July 31, 2020, whichever is earlier. Supporters said it is essential to provide municipalities with the flexibility they need to run their government. They said the bill would allow cities and towns to function while still being fiscally responsible and maintaining the health and safety of voters. (A "Yes" vote is for the bill.) Rep. Paul DonatoYes Rep. Steven Ultrino Yes MOSQUITO CONTROL (H 4843) House 158-0, (Senate on a voice vote without a roll call), approved a law that would grant additional tools to the State Reclamation and Mosquito Control Board to combat mosquito-borne illnesses including Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE) and West Nile Virus (WNV). The measure gives the board the authority to take preventative, management and eradicative mosquito control methods to address the problem when the risk is elevated. The board must notify local authorities, property owners, agricultural entities and other stakeholders about spraying plans, products and timelines. Other provisions include allowing cities and towns to opt out of mosquito control efforts if they provide a suitable alternative control plan; requiring the board after each spraying action to provide a written report summarizing efforts and details of products used to stakeholders; and creating a Mosquito Control for the 21st Century Task Force to develop a sustainable, long-term mosquito plan using input from a number of stakeholders and experts with the goals of protecting public health while minimizing environmental impacts. “As we enter peak mosquito season, I am proud to have worked on and passed urgent and comprehensive EEE legislation that enables the commonwealth to prevent and manage this mosquito borne illness,” said Rep. John Mahoney (D-Worcester). “This legislation thoughtfully addresses the concerns of public health experts, environmental health advocates, local boards of health and our municipalities as we work to mitigate this concerning public health matter.” “With this bill, we’re ensuring that the Department of Public Health can respond to the most imminent health concerns posed by EEE, while moving the commonwealth toward a more sustainable, comprehensive, and environmentally protective plan for the future,” said Rep. Carolyn Dykema (D-Holliston). “Cases of EEE and WNV are on the rise and we need to be vigilant," said Rep. Josh Cutler (D-Duxbury). “Mosquitoes don’t stop at the town line, so having a coordinated, statewide approach is necessary. This legislation also ensures that voices of farmers, and the impacts on our water supplies and organic agriculture are included.” During the hearing on the original version of the legislation in May, many groups and individuals testified against the bill. They expressed concern about land, rivers and wetlands conservation, organic agriculture, wildlife and exposure to toxic chemicals. About 20 minutes after the House approved the bill, public health officials announced that this year’s first case of WNV has been found in mosquitoes collected in Belmont. No human or animal cases have yet been identified. The DPH has advised residents to protect themselves by using mosquito repellents with an EPA-registered active ingredient; wearing long pants, a longsleeved shirt and socks when outdoors; keeping mosquitoes out of your home by repairing any holes in your screens and making sure they are tightly attached to all your doors and windows; and removing areas of standing water around your home. More details on how to protect yourself can be found at https://www.mass.gov/service-details/west-nile-virus-wnv (A “Yes" vote is for the bill.) Rep. Paul DonatoYes Rep. Steven Ultrino Yes 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 September 28-October 2, the House met for a total of 27 minutes while the Senate met for a total of 24 minutes. Mon.

By: Nathaniel Cramer, Chair October 2 & 9, 2020 Edna G. (Duggan) LaFarge Of Mel - rose for - merly longtime res - iden t of Malden, at the age of 89, passed away peacefully on Thursday, October 1, 2020 surrounded by her loving family. Edna was born and raised in Somerville where she met and married her high school sweetheart Leo. They moved to Malden and raised their 5 daughters. Over the next 47 years of marriage their family grew, adding 13 grandchildren and 6 great grandchildren to their family tree. After her husband’s passing, Edna later moved to Melrose where she would spend her remaining years living independently. She was able to remain independent until a recent fall when her daughters were able to keep her in her home and provide around-the-clock care. They will cherish this time spent with her in her last days. Edna was employed as a nurse’s aide for many years at the former Normandy House Nursing Home. She then went on to become a home health aide with Intercity Homemakers. Towards the end of her career she provided private inhome care for some wonderful people who considered her to be "like family." She truly enjoyed taking care of the elderly and those in need. Edna loved people. She always greeted anyone she met with a smile and a warm hello. She had good friends that remained close to her through the years. Her closest and most treasured friend, the late Camille Lane, with whom she raised her children in the same neighborhood, shared many fun trips, luncheons and memories. Edna loved to travel and loved trips to the casino. But her most favorite time was attending a musical or live concert with her daughters, family or friends. Her love of music, live shows and a pretty wardrobe ensemble will remain a treasured gift she has passed down to her daughters. After the tragic loss of her eldest daughter Linda in 2014, a high school classmate-the late Dominic Fucile contacted her to offer his condolences of her recent loss. Dominic and her went on to have a loving relationship and shared a brief one-year courtship that brought Edna much joy and happiness in light of her recent loss. She was devastated after his passing just one year after they reconnected. She often talked of Domenic with a smile and sweet memory. Edna will fondly be remembered by anyone who knew her as someone who saw only the good in people. Her resilient, upbeat and shining attitude is a gift she radiated any time she was near. She was incredibly proud of her daughters and grandkids and was their biggest cheerleader; always offering a sound piece of positive advice and support. May her generous and kind spirit live on in all who had the pleasure of knowing her. Edna was predeceased by her beloved husband Leo C. LaFarge. She is survived by her late sister Marie Sullivan, daughters Judy A. Sinclair and her loving companion James George of Peabody, Carol A. Ciacera and her husband Charles of Middleton, Patricia A. LaFarge of Melrose, Diane M. Alexander and her husband Glenn of Reading, and the late Linda M. LaFarge.

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, October 9, 2020 Page 17 Child care crisis: hope for parents during pandemic A pilot program providing working-class families with affordable child care services – available during nonstandard hours when parents are most in need – was recently announced by the Care That Works Coalition. The Coalition “is a new campaign convened by Community Labor United that seeks to bring community-based organizations and labor unions together to confront the child care crisis in Massachusetts,” according to the Coalition’s website. “The pilot program marks an important step in creating solutions that ease the child care challenges that working families face, which are now more severe than ever,” said Community Labor United Deputy Director Lindsay McCluskey. “This program will be critical in ensuring that residents can get back to work or pursue good jobs with the support they need when it comes to child care. We hope that the pilot can model our vision of what the child care system should look like: one that truly supports working-class families and child care providers.” Parents spoke about their struggle to access child care services and the resulting challenges it causes. “Before we connected with a provider through this Program, I couldn’t find child care that matched with our work hours,” said Christina Morris, a parent of four and a member of the Carpenters Union. “The unfortunate reality is that my situation is not unique. It is a present challenge faced by parents everywhere as a result of our inaccessible and unaffordable child care system. This challenge has only multiplied since the pandemic hit. We need programs like the one that Care That Works launched. We need programs that build a system accessible for all working families, which supports the careers of working parents by providing them child care, when they need it.” Child care providers, including family child care providers, were already struggling before the pandemic and were dealt a devastating blow by COVID-19. Child care remains an economic necessity for working families, especially as more sectors of the economy begin to reopen. This pilot program uses an online platform, Carina Care, to connect families looking for high-quality child care in their area with providers. Details of the pilot were shared in a Facebook Live virtual press conference. A recording can be viewed at @CareThatWorksMA. “It can be challenging for parents to find child care right now,” said Maria Esteves, a child care provider in Roslindale. “As child care providers, we want to do everything we can to provide safe, quality care for families, and Carina is a tool that allows us to do that.” Massachusetts child care is among the most expensive in the country. Public subsidies cover only a small portion of the cost, and eligible families face long waiting lists. The Commonwealth has imposed increasingly high standards on child care providers, but these providers’ wages remain low. The CHILD | SEE PAGE 19 RESERVED SPECIAL POWERS OF APPOINTMENT principal upon the death of the lifetime beneficiary or the person who the real estate was deeded to) has a vested remainder interest subject to divestment. If the SPOA is never exercised, the remainder person will end up taking title as originally planned. The pure definition of a Often times, individuals decide to transfer assets in order to protect them against a possible nursing home stay. Due to the risk of losing assets, transfers often occur prior to when the transferor would prefer. An often-used technique used in drafting to create a bigger incentive for such transfers is the insertion of a provision in a deed or in an irrevocable Trust reserving a limited or special power of appointment (SPOA). A SPOA is a power which enables someone at a later date to change the original disposition of the real estate if a deed is the relevant document or the Trust principal if an irrevocable Trust is the relevant document. The SPOA is reserved by the individual transferring an interest in real estate or transferring any type of property to an irrevocable Trust. In 2017, the Massachusetts Appeals Court in the case of Skye v. Hession held that a deed containing such a reserved SPOA was a valid transfer. The remainder person (the person receiving the Trust SPOA is that it cannot be exercised in favor of the person creating the power, his creditors, his estate, or the creditors of his estate. This is important for MassHealth purposes in order to not have the underlying asset(s) countable for eligibility purposes. The MassHealth applicant’s spouse should also be excluded as a person who might benefit from the exercise of the SPOA. As long as the property in question is vested in persons other than the applicant or spouse, and as long as neither of them have any power to revest the property in themselves, the property should be deemed transferred for purposes of beginning the five year look back period. If nursing home level care is not needed within five years from the date of transfer, the property should be protected. Furthermore, any subsequent exercise of the SPOA itself after the five- year period has elapsed should in no way create any additional period of MassHealth ineligibility. Joseph D.

Page 18 THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, October 9, 2020 avy eniooavvy S iornior avvyavy n r by Jim Miller Helping Seniors Recognize Fake News and Propaganda Dear Savvy Senior, Are there any resources that you know of that can help seniors detect fake news? My 75-year-old mother shares a lot of misinformation with her family and friends that she sees on Facebook. I’ve talked to her about it, but for some reason she has a diffi cult time deciphering real news from fake news and propaganda. Frustrated Daughter Dear Frustrated, Unfortunately, the digital misinformation problem your mom is experiencing is not uncommon. According to researchers from Princeton and New York University, people aged 65 and older are up to seven times more likely to share fake news and dubious links on social media than their younger counterparts. Why? There are several theories. The fi rst is that many seniors started using social media sites like Facebook only within the past fi ve or six years and may lack the digital literacy skills to identify false or misleading content. Some other possible theories are that most seniors experience some cognitive decline as they age, making them more likely to fall for hoaxes. Many older Americans also suff er from chronic loneliness which can cause them to share misinformation as an attempt to make connections with other people. And studies have shown that older people are generally more trusting than younger generations, which can make them more gullible. All this is particularly concerning now as we sit in the midst of a global health pandemic and a 2020 election season, both of which are ripe with misinformation, rumors and conspiracy theories. And seniors are prime targets of this false/misleading information because they are much more likely to vote than their younger cohorts and are much more vulnerable to getting sick and dying if they contract COVID-19. Where to Get Help To help your mom detect and combat online misinformation there are several great resources she can turn to that off er free courses and tips. One is MediaWise for Seniors, a project of the Poynter Institute, which off ers two free online courses to help seniors detect and combat online misinformation – see Poynter.org/ mediawise-for-seniors. The fi rst four-week course has already fi lled up, but your mom can still enroll in a self-directed course called “Hands-On Lessons to Separate Fact and Fiction Online.” It is hosted by Christiane Amanpour and Joan Lunden, and is scheduled to begin Sept. 24, but she can take the course anytime. In addition, Poynter has worked with AARP to produce Fact Tracker interactive videos and a webinar on spotting and fi ltering misinformation at AARP.org/facttracker. Some other free course options you should look into include Senior Planet, which is off ering a one-hour online course on “How to Spot Fake News” at SeniorPlanet.org. The News Literacy Project that provides the Checkology virtual classroom, which was initially created for middle and high school students, is now off ering an independent learners option that is ideal for older adults – see Get.Checkology.org. Their lessons will help your mom detect the diff erence between news, opinion and propaganda. Coursera, a free world-wide online learning platform, which off ers an in-depth six-week course called “Making Sense of the News: News Literacy Lessons for Digital Citizens,” which she can access at Coursera.org/learn/news-literacy. There are also many good websites, like PolitiFact.com, Snopes.com and FactCheck.org that will let your mom fact check a story to help her identify fact versus fi ction. These sites have most likely already fact-checked the latest viral claim to pop up in her news feed. Send your senior questions to: Savvy Senior, P.O. Box 5443, Norman, OK 73070, or visit SavvySenior.org.

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, October 9, 2020 Page 19 CHILD | FROM PAGE 17 COVID-19 pandemic has only compounded these challenges. For many parents, COVID-19 has made child care a critical challenge in their lives. This challenge has affected their ability to work, and those who don’t have the option to work at home have to weigh the health risk posed by sending their child to a child care program against the loss of income. And many child care programs and those who operate them have struggled to remain open and meet new COVID-19 requirements. “Being in the construction industry and being in an apprenticeship program that demands very early hours, I knew child care was going to be a difficult road ahead,” said Matthew Hamilton, a single parent and IBEW Local 103 apprentice. “My prior experience was that child care facilities don’t open up any earlier than 7:30 a.m. My situation is that I don’t have friends or family close by who could help me fill that early morning gap, when I leave for work and he needs to go to school. Care That Works has made a tremendous difference in that regard. They have maintained contact with me through the whole pandemic and have made a difference in me and my son’s life.” The pilot program will: • Be affordable to working-class families • Be accessible at times when families most need care • Provide living wages and benefits to child care providers • Promote child care as a public good and collective responsibility • Place parents and providers at the center of decision-making tables The Coalition’s pilot program FOR RENT!! 350 Revere Beach Blvd., Unit 3-3X, Revere Beach The St. George Condominiums & Beach Club will connect parents and providers via Carina Care. This Carina project is a partnership to provide quality, licensed child care to working families. Local child care providers regularly update their profiles and current openings so that families in need of child care can search providers, find available care and contact providers quickly and easily. The Service Employees International Union (SEIU), the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) and the SEIU Education and Support Fund, along with Carina, are sponsoring this joint effort to bring together families and care providers. The Coalition is comprised of unions and other organizations coming together to work toward an affordable and accessible child care system that addresses the impacts of COVID-19 on child care providers statewide. ~ LEGAL NOTICE ~ Invitation to Bid Plumbing Services MHA #091420 MHA is accepting sealed bids for an indefinite quantity contract to perform intermittent plumbing services at various properties owned and operated by the MHA, for a minimum term of one (1) year, extending up to a maximum term of five (5) consecutive years, all awards to be made subject to funding and in the MHA’s sole discretion.
