THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, October 20, 2023 Page 3 Malden Public Schools show improvement, progress in newest MCAS testing scores All grade levels are close to on par with state averages; Malden High School and English Learners show dramatic improvements By Steve Freker T he Malden Public Schools showed a measured degree of improvement in their newest MCAS score results, with higher scores than most school districts similar to MPS. According to the Mass. Department of Education (DOE) the Massachusetts Comprehensive Assessment System (MCAS) – administered each year – “helps teachers, parents, and students know where students are excelling and where they need help.” Superintendent of Schools Dr. Ligia Noriega-Murphy and her team made a detailed presentation of the results at the October regular Malden School Committee meeting. Pamela Stazesky, Data Analyst for the Malden Public Schools, delivered the Malden schools MCAS results. Some drastic changes had adverse effects on the testing process, particularly the onceMalden has shown much improvement in its MCAS testing results in just one year. in-100 years pandemic, which began in spring 2020 and continued through 2022. There were also substantial changes in both the MCAS testing platform itself, as well as in the Malden Public Schools curriculum. In 2020 there was no MCAS testing, and in 2021 the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) mandated that half the regular testing platform was administered. In 2022, full MCAS testing was administered. Improvements were cited in the 2023 testing – exceeding targets – from the 2022 results. She noted that the “pandemic Mayor, City Councillors, School Committee members all receiving pay raises City Council unanimously approves ordinance increasing salaries for all elected officials By Steve Freker T he Malden City Council at a meeting earlier this month unanimously approved an ordinance which formally increases the salaries of all elected officials, beginning with the new municipal term beginning January 1, 2024. There had been one major constant in the top echelon of Malden municipal government for over a decade. Gary Christenson has been Mayor of Malden since January 1, 2012, after winning election in November 2011. There’s another constant: When Mayor Christenson first took office on the first day of 2012, his annual salary was $105,000. Remarkably, today, Mayor Christenson’s annual salary remains unchanged: still $105,000. At that figure, Malden’s MayPAY | SEE PAGE 14 slide” had halted and that targets for improvements were either met in some areas, or “very close to meeting targets.” Malden High School’s grade 10 students made perhaps the most dramatic improvement with a rise from an overall testing score of 17 on the DESE scale, all the way to 60.

Page 6 THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, October 20, 2023 ~ Malden Musings ~ “Don Roach Update” By Peter Levine S ocial Media bringing joy into my life! That joy was a Facebook post by Donny Roach (Malden High School 1976) reflecting on his first high school football experience at MHS, pre-season football camp at Winchendon, 50 years ago this year. Winchendon is in north-central Massachusetts – population around 10,000 in 44 square miles. Think about that for a moment. Malden is five square miles and despite what our official census may say, there are many, many more than 65,000 people living here. But I digress... Don Roach was an athlete for the ages. Donny played any sport he wanted; better than most. Maldonians of a certain age will recognize the name, but as the years gallop on by, guys like Donny Roach are relegated to plaques on high school walls (of course, he is in the MHS Sports Hall of Fame). His baseball, hockey and football skills earned him that spot with the rest of the MHS sports immortals. He wasn’t the best hoop player around, but he was a gamer. In the ninth grade he moved from Coburn Street to Malden Street right across from Devir Park. We let him play basketball with us, some thought only because he had two pretty sisters (Janet and Jean). I kid. Donny was super competitive in every sport, and many times he embarrassed us Devir Dawgs on the hoop court. I always loved the Roach family and after moving into Edgeworth, we proclaimed them/him as one of us. Although, as you will read, his heart lay deeply embedded at Lawrence A.

I moved to Malden St during summer between 8th and 9th grade, but the deal I made with my folks was if we were going to move to Beebe territory, I wanted to finish Jr High at Lincoln. They said ‘fine, but your responsible for getting yourself to and from school.’ So, I biked to Lincoln for most of that year (they cut me some slack and gave me a ride when it was snowing). “I’m semi-retired now doing consulting for a software company where I worked for over 35 years. With my extra hours, my wife and I care for our granddaughter 2-3 days per week. Couldn’t be more thrilled and having a blast with her! “I’ve been coaching hockey at Masconomet Regional HS for the past 12-13 years. That’s been a great experience and an awful lot of fun. Players have been receptive to an old-timer like me, and the competitive environment is something I still enjoy immensely. “Living at hockey rinks for 4 months every year has caused numerous occasions for bumping into old Malden acquaintances. I had the distinct pleasure of coaching Steve and John Jesi’s sons, so I got to see them regularly over their boy’s years of playing, and the boy’s uncle Anthony (Jesi) was a regular attendee at games as well. “Perry Verge and Michael Norton were sure to pop-up once or twice a year as referees for our games. This past season the office official for our game against Malden Catholic was none other than John ‘Trixie’ Trischitta! “Coach Bill McCormick’s grandson was an outstanding hockey player, and I would regularly run into coach not only at games, but he would also attend practices as well. His passion for hockey is still off-the-chart! And, currently, coach Billy Hanafin’s grandson is one of the top goalies in the state for Reading High, and I had the great pleasure of attending a game with him last season. “I have four grown boys (now men) ranging from 31 to 38 years old, and a wonderful wife who is incredibly supportive of all that I do; although she’s growing a bit weary of all the old Malden stories, and is constantly amazed by the fact that I’m Pictured from left to right: Front row: John Stanasek, Johnny Mallett, Donny Roach; standing: Jeff Sullivan, Tommy Cunha and Bobby Paolini. running into Maldonians wherever we go across the country (for instance, literally bumping into Brian Rutledge as we were each scrambling across O’Hare Airport Terminal to catch different connecting flights - and I’d not seen Brian for over 25 years!” As Peter Falk’s iconic TV character Columbo would say, “Just one more thing, sir” – Donny Roach speaks: “50 years ago was a very special time for myself and roughly 50 other MHS Golden Tornado footballers. Can’t believe it was so long ago, but I remember it and the great memories spawned like it was yesterday. “A new coaching staff was taking control of the program, and their first major decision was to institute a new pre-season, off-campus training camp. Head coach Paul Finn, assisted by Tom Kelly, Lou Racca, Billy Hanafin, Richie Cullen, Barry Fitzpatrick, and Doc Driscoll arranged for this great adventure conducted at Camp Forest Hills!! It was on this very day, those many years ago, that coach buses rolled up to Pearl Street Stadium and we had a send-off attended by families, generous benefactors, and public dignitaries (I believe Mayor Kelliher attended). And of course, Paul Lahey was there to record it all for the Malden Evening News. “As an incoming sophomore it was an exciting but also a somewhat frightening introduction to high school football. In those days, freshmen were not part of the program, but rather, 9th graders attended Lincoln, Beebe, and Browne. So even before we attended a single day of school at MHS, we were heading off to compete with older, bigger, stronger, faster upperclassmen, many of who we’d never met. So, it was a reasonably intimidating situation. “But our sophomore group was confident in the fact that we weren’t alone as individuals. We’d bonded together over many years of playing football and other sports together, and we knew we could trust our buddies in unsure and even difficult circumstances. That group included my Lincoln teammates: John Stanasek, Charlie Russell, Stanley Langston, Albert Junior Ford, Paul Trickett, Mike Freni, Tommy O’Brien, Scott Mallett and Stanley Gifford. From Beebe we were joined by Anthony Jesi, John Grenham, Rocco Saraceni, Steve Adorn, Bob Lenehan, Craig Pottle, Paul Skiffington, Ross Schifano, and Brian Carroll; and from Browne there was Tommy Littlewood, Steve DeFilippis, Steve Gaffey and Brendan McQuade. “I have no recollection of exactly where the camp was located, but boy, was it remote and rustic!! It was essentially like camping in very spartan platform cabins with old, saggy, smelly cots. The “football field” was nothing more than a mowed meadow with lime football lines laid out. Come to think of it, I don’t recall there being any goal posts! “So, there were challenges to be sure, but the coaching staff and the upperclassmen led by captains Danny Provitola, Tony Fermano and Bob Paolini couldn’t have been more welcoming and supportive. Being away from home in less-thanideal environs undergoing physically demanding triple-session workouts each day in the hot August sun created a bonding experience that was remarkable. “A team that hadn’t won a game the previous season improved throughout the season and culminated with a sweet Thanksgiving victory over heavily favored Medford, and the core MUSINGS| SEE PAGE 14

The workers are represented by the Asian American Legal Defense and Education Fund (AALDEF) and the Asian Outreach Center (AOC) at Greater Boston Legal Services. They are seeking more than $230,000 in unpaid wages, overtime pay, stolen tips and damages. “Wage and hour laws exist to protect workers from exploitative conditions. Employers must abide by the law and pay their employees their lawful wages,” said AALDEF Senior Counsel Elizabeth Koo. “Every worker is entitled to have their wages paid in full for work performed — regardless of immigration status.” “We dedicated extensive hours to the restaurant. I worked hard, so I could raise my child, provide for my family in China, and support my father who is terminally ill and needed hundreds of dollars just for a single dose of medicine. I need to get my wages back,” said Mr. Zhang, a litigant in the case who prefers to be referred to by a pseudonym.

The Sichuan Taste manager retaliated and threatened workers who tried to organize and demand their wages, according to the lawsuit. “When Sichuan Taste failed to pay us, I felt stressed like the other workers. We worked hard to make ends meet, and we needed our money to sustain ourselves. Because of the employer’s actions, we could not move on with our lives. We are grateful to have reached out to the Chinese Progressive Association-Boston to learn about our rights and how we can get our wages back,” said Yuan Li, a 21-year-old immigrant from China and a litigant in the case against her former employer, Sichuan Taste. “Paying workers their minimum wages and overtime pay is the bare minimum. All three employees put their sweat and labor into Sichuan Taste, and running and games creates distance between the playground and the Eastern Avenue sidewalk. The ballfield’s backstop and irrigation will be replaced and upgraded, and the fi eld itself will be rotated slightly to improve playability and safety. Other site amenities include new player areas, bleachers, benches, walking paths, lighting, trees, bicycle parking, landscaping, trash receptacles, fencing and utilities. The project is being administered by the City of Malden’s Offi ce of Strategic Planning and Community Development (OSPCD). Shadley Associates is the landscape architect and David W.

Project funding includes $900,000 in the city’s American Rescue Plan Act funds, $400,000 each from the city’s Community Development Block Grant funds, Community Preservation Act funds and the state’s Parkland Acquisitions and Renovations for Communities grant program and $350,000 in state earmarks secured by Malden’s legislative delegation. they deserve fair pay for their hard work,” said AOC Director Janet Vo. “We are committed to representing these workers to secure their stolen wages, and we encourage all workers who are suff ering from wage theft and exploitative working conditions to come forward and assert their rights.” Malden is a Greater Boston area city with one of the highest growths of Asian Americans in New England. As of the 2020 Census, over 25% of Malden residents are Asian American, many of whom are immigrants who speak languages other than English.

Page 10 THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, October 20, 2023 Healey-Driscoll Administration awards over $5.4M to help municipalities improve road safety R ecently, the Healey-Driscoll Administration announced that 186 Massachusetts towns and cities will receive grant funds to support traffi c safety enforcement and outreach programming. The federal awards total upwards of $5.4 million invested in local roadway safety initiatives. A total of $5,449,584.03 has been awarded through the FY24 Municipal Road Safety Grant Program. The program is administered by the Office of Grants and Research (OGR) and utilizes funds awarded by the National Highway Traffi c Safety Administration. The annual program provides funding to municipal police departments that propose traffi c safety projects in their community, including high visibility enforcement patrols, equipment to enhance road safety, such as digital speed signs, pedestrian and bicyclist safety initiatives and public outreach campaigns intended to educate community members and youth about roadway safety. “Whether by vehicle, bicycle or foot, everyone has the right to travel safely through our communities,” said Governor Maura Healey. “Through this program, we were able to award grants to every community that requested funding. The education, enforcement and outreach initiatives supported through these grants will help ensure safer roads for all.” “As a former mayor, I understand how important these grants are to ensuring safer streets in our neighborhoods,” said Lt. Governor Kimberley Driscoll. “Every community seeks to enhance the safety of their roadways, but each faces unique needs. This program provides cities and towns the fl exibility to identify and invest in the traffi c safety issues that are most pressing in their own communities.” “Aggressive and dangerous driving are a threat to every road user. Providing local law enforcement agencies with the resources necessary to enforce traffi c laws and educate members of their communities about distracted, impaired and aggressive driving is vital to ensuring the public’s safety,” said Secretary of Public Safety and Security Terrence Reidy. “These grants allow towns and cities to approach traffi c safety initiatives in ways that make the most sense for the community’s needs.” “Tragically, the Covid-19 pandemic led to a secondary epidemic of increased traffic fatalities across the nation. As we work toward reducing the number of crashes on Massachusetts roads, it’s imperative that agencies involved in this mission have the resources they need to protect road users,” said OGR Executive Director Kevin Stanton. “The Municipal Road Safety Grant Program is designed to provide towns and cities with the flexibility to address their community’s needs along with the guidance and resources needed to ensure the success of traffi c safety initiatives. This collaborative approach is key to improving the safety of our roadways.” The Malden Police Department was awarded $59,950.00.

Page 12 THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, October 20, 2023 Malden’s first ‘Lynn Win’ on Homecoming Night sets up a ‘must win’ to keep postseason hopes alive Tornado football holds on for 21-14 victory over Lynn English on Senior Night; Everett came to town last night By Steve Freker M alden football followers know that “Lynn” rhymes with “win,” but the Golden Tornado team’s fortunes have been anything but victorious against teams from that city for, seemingly, forever. You’d have to go back over a decade since the Blue and Gold gridiron boys had recorded a win over a Lynn team – Classical, English or Tech – maybe more. It has stayed that way since the “Lynns” – Classical and English – bolted the Northeastern Conference and joined the Greater Boston League several years ago. All that changed last Thursday night when Malden outlasted visiting Lynn English for a 2114 victory at Macdonald Stadium to end the lengthy “Lynn, No Wins” streak. The win made Malden’s Senior Night festivities all the sweeter – the Tornados honored their seven members of the Class of 2024 before the game. The victory was Malden and Head Coach Witche Exilhomme’s second in the past three weeks, lifting the Tornados to 2-4 overall, 2-1 in Greater Boston League play. Lynn English went to 1-5 overall, 1-2 GBL. The win was critical for Malden, in its potential quest for its first postseason berth in eight seasons. Malden had another big task right in its sights for this week. Last night the Golden Tornado squad hosted GBL leader and 16th-ranked Everett High Crimson Tide at Macdonald Stadium with an upset win on its mind. “One of our biggest goals include a spot in the playoffs and we could get a lot closer with a win at home [against Everett],” Coach Exilhomme said this week, as his team prepared for the Crimson Aidan Brett, a junior slot receiver for Malden, catches a pass just before he goes “All-YAC” (Yards After Catch) for a 44-yard gain for Malden. (Advocate Photos/Henry Huang) Tide. “We are working hard to be ready for this [Everett] game.” Against Lynn English last week, Malden welcomed back senior slotback Davien McGuffie, who had been sidelined for the past two games with an injury. McGuffie, one of the most explosive players in the GBL, made himself known almost immediately when he finished off a quick Malden scoring drive with the first of his two touchdowns to give the home team a first quarter lead. Freshman quarterback Ryan Bowdridge hit junior Aidan Brett on an out pattern pass at about midfield with about 1:35 left to play in the first quarter. Brett made one cut to the inside and then found a seam to paydirt on the hashmarks for a 52-yard pickup all the way to inside the Lynn English 4-yard line. A shoestring tackle by an English defender was all that kept Brett from the first pass receiving touchdown of his three-year Malden varsity career. Bowdridge handed off to McGuffie on the next play for a Malden touchdown, and sophomore kicker Robert Fernandes’ first of three PAT kicks on the eveRyan Bowdridge, Malden’s freshman quarterback, looks for an open receiver in last Thursday’s win over Lynn English. ning made it 7-0. That’s how it stayed for the rest of the half as Malden and Lynn English played stalemate football between the two 30-yard lines. English had a golden scoring opportunity early in the second quarter when Malden misplayed a punt and gave Lynn the ball inside its own 25-yard line, but the Tornado defense, led by GBL-leading tackler Felix Junior Da Costa, stiffened and would not let English past the 18-yard line, with the Tornados getting the ball back on downs. English had started what had become a game of “whoever makes the least mistakes... wins” when it dominated in its first drive of the game, going 58 yards on seven plays, before fumbling the ball away on the Malden 8-yard line – recovered by junior captain James Hyppolite. At halftime, Malden fans got a thrill when the selectees for this year’s Golden Tornado Hall of Fame were announced and honored on the field. Also honored were the members of the “Homecoming Court” for the Malden High School Homecoming Dance, which was held at the school Friday night. Malden took what appeared Davien McGuffie, a Malden High School senior slotback, returned to action after missing two games and scored two touchdowns in a 21-14 win. Above, McGuffie dodges two would-be English tacklers. to be a commanding lead late in the third quarter, when a solid, 9-play, 71-yard offensive drive was capped by a 10-yard run by junior captain Matt Brito, his third TD of the season. Brito found a gap behind the block of senior captain Jerell Calixte over the right tackle slot for the score. After Malden seemed to have grabbed the momentum, it quickly shifted to a free-for-all in the fourth quarter, where it James Hyppolite, a junior captain and linebacker, and Felix Junior Da Costa tackle a Lynn English running back. became “whoever has the ball last” could be the winner. Lynn English awoke from its slumber and cut the lead to 14-7 with a touchdown on its first drive of the fourth quarter on a 77-yard, 8-play scoring push for their first score of the night on a 21-yard sprint by quarterback Limbert Thomas, who had 54 yard rushing and 98 yards passing on the night. Malden answered right away, scoring on its next drive on another TD by McGuffie, again for four yards, with Fernandes’ third kick making it 21-7 with 6:51 to play. English wouldn’t go away, however, forcing a Malden punt with 4:11 to play – sophomore Jordan Em kept his team within striking distance, blocking and returning a Malden punt for a 43yard touchdown to keep it close at 21-13 with three minutes left. The Rams’ defense was solid again, forcing another Malden punt, which allowed the Bulldogs a last-chance drive from their own 23-yard line with 1:35 left to play. Thomas hit on a couple of passes to bring English 55 yards to Malden’s 28, but his Hail Mary pass on the last play of the game was enough to give Malden jitters, but was over everyone’ heads and out of the end zone to end the game, as the “No Wins, Lynn” was lifted for Malden. **** EXTRA POINTS: Malden was surely an underdog versus Everett last night, but was looking for a strong start and potential upset finish, as in the 2021 game, where Malden basically stuffed the Tide in the first half and trailed just 15-0 at halftime, before running out of gas in a 37-0 loss... Last year, Everett feasted on a billow of five interceptions of Malden passes – all leading to scores, including two “Pick 6” TDs in a 43-0 loss... Malden kicker Robert Fernandes is quickly developing into one of the most efficient for the Tornado football program, ever. He has hit on 7-of-8 in PATS in the last three games, including 5 straight... After last night’s game, Malden heads into its final regular season game on the road versus GBLer Revere on Friday, October 27, before two “to be scheduled” games and Thanksgiving versus Medford.

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, October 20, 2023 Page 13 Eagles celebrate Hickey’s 100th goal with 7-1 win over Innovation By Emily Brennan T he Mystic Valley girls’ soccer team celebrated Reilly Hickey on Thursday as she scored her 100th career goal in a 7-1 victory over Innovation Academy at Eastern Avenue. It was the seventh win of the season for the Eagles, who improved to 7-31 overall. “I’m very proud of Reilly,” Mystic Valley Head Coach Matt Offner said. “It is an incredible accomplishment and payoff for all her hard work.” With the sun in their eyes, the Eagles had a bit of a slow start, yet were still able to open the scoring. It happened in the 18th minute, as Aya Abbassi passed to Hickey, who calmly slid the ball to the right as the goalkeeper dove left. Minutes later the Eagles went up 2-0 after an own goal from a corner kick. Innovation responded, creating space past the Eagles’ defense to net the ball in the farright side of the goal for a 2-1 score. Abbassi had a hand in the next goal, lofting a ball that passed over an Innovation defender to find Julia Kearns, who kicked the ball into the far-left corner of the goal for a 3-1 advantage and her first goal of the season. The Eagles made it 4-1 in the 45th minute when senior captain Evie Reynolds lined up Reilly Hickey holds the ball with which she scored her 100th career goal. about 18 yards outside of the box and lofted a ball into the lower left corner of the net. Hickey scored her 100th goal as she dribbled the ball down the middle of the field with incredible speed. As the Innovation Academy keeper challenged her, Hickey pushed the ball past her for the milestone. One more goal from Hickey allowed Mystic Valley to lead 6-1, and Lucia Antonucci concluded the scoring with a goal that came in the 68th minute of the game for the 7-1 win. “Overall, I’m very proud of this group,” Offner said. “This was an important win for us as we look to lock things up in the conference. It has been a great week for us.” MHS VARSITY SOCCER CAPTAINS: Alexandra Rodrigues, Head Coach Rick Caceda and Abigail Morrison.

Page 14 THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, October 20, 2023 MUSINGS | FROM PAGE 6 GRANTOR TRUSTS A Grantor Trust is a trust in which one or more “donors” or “other persons” are treated as “owning” all, or a portion of, a trust for federal income tax purposes.The donor is often referred to as the settlor or the grantor as well.The applicable tax law is found in Internal Revenue Code (IRC) Sections 671 through 679 (the “Grantor Trust Rules) and the corresponding regulations thereunder. Assets owned by a Grantor Trust may be included or excluded from the decedent’s estate for federal estate tax purposes. The determination of whether or not those assets will be included in the donor’s estate depends on the provisions found in the trust instrument itself. In order for the assets of the Grantor Trust to be excluded from the decedent’s estate, the transfer of assets into the trust must be considered to be a “completed” gift, and the donor must not retain one of the prohibited powers or interests as set forth in IRC Sections 2036, 2037, 2038, 2041 and 2042. An example of a power retained under IRC Section 2036 is a right to use, occupy and possess the real estate that was transferred to the trust. In that situation, the entire value of the property would be includible in the donor’s estate for estate tax purposes upon his or her death. Not a problem for federal estate tax purposes so long as the decedent’s estate is less than $12.92million. The Massachusetts estate tax exemption has increased from $1million to $2million just several weeks ago. You should also note the federal gift tax exemption is $12.92million and that Massachusetts has no gift tax. Therefore, a parent can gift $500,000 to a child one day before dying thereby reducing the gross estate from $2.5million to $2million and completely avoid the Massachusetts estate tax. Regardless of whether the transfer to a trust is treated as a completed gift for federal gift tax purposes, or whether the trust assets are to be included in the donor’s estate for federal estate tax purposes, the federal “income tax” result is the same: Each donor of a Grantor Trust is taxed on all of theincome, deductions, gains,losses and credits of the trust assets to the extent that the donor is treated as the owner of the trust. Therefore, you look to the Grantor Trust Rules in order to determine who owns the assets of the trust for federal income tax purposes. This determination of ownership, however, is not to be confused with the tax treatment of the trust for federal “gift” and “estate” tax purposes, or who may own the trust assets for state property law purposes. IRC Section 671 provides the general rule that a donor or some other person who is found to be an “owner” of all or a portion of a trust must report and pay tax on the portion of the trust that the donor (or such other person) is treated as owning. Sections 673 through 679 (with the exception of Section 678) provide specific rules that cause a “donor” to be treated as an “owner” of all or a portion of a trust. Section 678 deals with the situation in which someone other than the donor is treated as the owner. There must also be a gratuitous transfer to the trust for the Grantor Trust Rules to apply. The Ownership Rules will usually apply when a donor is deemed to have a specific interest or power over a trust. A donor may be treated as owning all or a portion of the “income” of a trust. Also, a donor may be treated as owning all or a portion of the “principal” of a trust. Why is all of this important? It is the Grantor Trust Rules that provide the answers as to where to report the Trust’s gross income, capital gains or losses, deductions or tax credits: on a trust income tax return or on the individual income tax return of the donor. Since there are so many trusts that have been executed and funded, it is important to understand the corresponding tax implications. Joseph D. Cataldo is an estate planning/elder law attorney, Certified Public Accountant, Certified Financial Planner, AICPA Personal Financial Specialist and holds a master’s degree in taxation. group of guys noted above ascended to GBL championships in our junior and senior seasons. So many challenges overcome; so much hard work; so much fun and funny stories; so many great, lifetime friendships; so many memories that live on!! “Thanks to all the guys in the classes of ’74, ’75, ’77 and ’78 in addition to my ’76 teammates above. You’ve all contributed to what was an amazing period in MHS history. Just so happy and thankful to have been a part of TESTING | FROM PAGE 3 told the School Committee, due to the improvement by English Learners, those whose first language is not English and are in immersive English language learner classes. The progress toward English language proficiency showed results that had doubled in positive results. Malden Public Schools has over 1,000 students in this category of the 6,300 enrolled overall. “We are encouraged by the overall results, as there are improvements at a lot of grade levels and at various schools,” Supt. Noriega-Murphy told the School Committee, “but we have more work to do, and there are many PAY | FROM PAGE 3 or is one of the lowest paid fulltime municipal chief executives in Massachusetts, particularly for a city the size of Malden. Additionally, it is believed that Mayor Christenson is the only full-time employee of the several thousand in the City of Malden who has not received a pay increase since 2012. According to some quick research, the Mayor’s position and the pay rate of the 11 members of the Malden City Council ($17,500 annually) are the only it. Best to you all after 50 years!!” As Peter Falk’s iconic TV character Columbo would say, “Just one more thing, sir” – apropos of nothing... “Am I mortified!!” said in my best Jimmy Durante voice! Thursday, August 17 – the five o’clock whistle blows – I dash out of the office, straight to the Nissan Versa, put on WMEX AM 1510 (The Wonder of You – Elvis), then exit the parking garage on Jackson Street excited to get home and see the grandkids. Before you could say Jackie Robinson, BAM! Traffic jam/ gridlock on Exchange Street! No areas where there could be improvement. We are grateful to our educators who are so passionate about helping our students achieve success in our district.” Malden’s data analyst Stazesky explained that Malden is very close in all categories, and equal in some, to the Massachusetts state average – all schools – which was also encouraging, she said. Another highly positive aspect of Malden’s MCAS testing results, Stazesky explained, is that from the 2022 results, there is a program called DART – which appears on the DESE website – where Malden stacks up very well to the 10 “alike” districts and communities. The 10 communities in Malpay rates in the entire city budget which have remained unchanged in the same time frame – since 2012. The new ordinance increases the pay rate for Mayor of Malden to $150,000 annually – still among the lowest for mayors in this region. Ward 5 Councillor Barbara Murphy’s resolution means a raise of $45,000 for the Mayor’s post – up to $150,000 from $105,000 (47.5%); an annual increase of $7,500 for each of the 11 City Councillors – up to $25,000 from $17,500 (42%); and a raise of $4,500 annually for accident, no police emergency, no Boda Borg bus parked in the middle of the street unloading youngsters eager to “experience the quest”! Halfway down Exchange I wish the Horseshoe Bar & Grille were still open. At that point I could have used a cold Gansett and hot dog. No kidding, 11 minutes later – which normally would be a 30 second drive – I am banging a left onto Main Street past the ghost of Jack in the Box. Gotta be honest, it ain’t like that every day, but it should never be 11 minutes for a 30 second drive. Just saying... den’s “alike districts” are Barnstable, Brockton, Chicopee, Everett, Lowell, Lynn, Marlborough, Milford, Revere and Waltham. Malden was below only two of these communities – Barnstable and Milford – in most grades and categories, and above all others. Malden was far above nearby districts, including Everett, Revere, Lynn in particular, as well as Brockton, Chicopee and Waltham in most categories. The results of the MCAS testing across the district are available by viewing the presentation on the DESE website: www. mcas.doe.edu More on Malden’s MCAS results will appear in next week’s edition. the seven members of the Malden School Committee – up to $12,000 from $7,500 (60%). By a unanimous 11-0 vote, the Councillors voted to approve the ordinance. Councillors Peg Crowe (Ward 1), Paul Condon (Ward 2), Linehan (Ward 3), Ryan O’Malley (Ward 4), Murphy (Council President), Stephen Winslow (Ward 6), Chris Simonelli (Ward 7), Jadeane Sica (Ward 8), Craig Spadafora (at large), McDonald (at-large) and Karen Colón Hayes (at-large) all voted in favor of the increase.

According to its website, the program provides resources to assist at-risk nonprofits improve physical security at their locations. “I am reducing this item to an amount consistent with my House [budget] recommendation,” said Healey in her veto message. “Alternate funding for this purpose was appropriated in the American Rescue Plan Act.” (A “Yes” vote is for the $1 million. A “No” vote is against it.) Rep. Paul Donato Yes Rep. Steven Ultrino Yes Sen. Jason Lewis Yes $4,988,680 FOR LOCAL BOARDS OF HEALTH (H 4040) House 152-2, Senate 37-1, overrode Gov. Healey’s veto of $4,988,680 (reducing funding from $15,050,000 to $10,061,320) for grants to local and regional Boards of Health. “I am reducing this item to the amount projected to be necessary,” said Healey in her veto message. “$197 million is available through the American Rescue Plan Act funding to achieve the objectives of this line item to enhance the local public health system through data and performance tracking, workforce development and grants.” (A “Yes” vote is for the $4,988,680. A “No” vote is against it.) Rep. Paul Donato Yes Rep. Steven Ultrino Yes Sen. Jason Lewis Yes $1 MILLION FOR CIVICS EDUCATION (H 4040) House 151-3, Senate 38-0, overrode Gov. Healey’s veto of $1 million (reducing funding from $2.5 million to $1.5 million) for the Civics Education Trust Fund. According to the Department of Education’s website, “The purpose of this competitive grant program is to support civics teaching and learning, including … implementation of student-led, non-partisan civics projects. “I am reducing this item to the amount projected to be necessary,” said Healey in her veto message. “This account funds a trust fund, which has a carry forward balance. The balance with the addition of the transfer proposed here is sufficient to meet projected demand.” (A “Yes” vote is for the $1 million. A “No” vote is against it.) Rep. Paul Donato Yes Rep. Steven Ultrino Yes Sen. Jason Lewis Yes ALSO UP ON BEACON HILL REVENGE PORN (H 4115) – The Judiciary Committee gave a favorable report to legislation that would prohibit the posting of sexually explicit images of another person online without their permission— commonly referred to as “revenge porn.” The practice is often used by ex-spouses or ex-partners. "I filed [my original bill] after hearing from victims throughout Massachusetts who have had their lives torn apart and who do not have an avenue to pursue justice,” said Sen. John Velis (D-Westfield), the sponsor of an earlier version of the measure. “It is unacceptable that Massachusetts is one of the last two states to criminalize revenge porn, and I am grateful that the Judiciary Committee has included my bill to rectify this issue as part of this comprehensive redrafted legislation." Another provision in the bill changes current law under which minors, under 18 years of age, who share explicit images of themselves or other minors, can be charged with violating Massachusetts child pornography laws and be required to register with the Sex Offender Registry. The bill allows minors to be punished by a commitment to the Department of Youth Services or to be diverted to an educational program that would provide them with information about the consequences of posting or transmitting indecent visual depictions of minors. Supporters say that under current law, when faced with an incident of sexting among teenagers, law enforcement officials are faced with either charging them with a felony or taking no action. They note the proposal provides law enforcement officers with a middle ground that will allow them to educate kids about the consequences of their actions without ruining their lives. The House and Senate approved different versions of similar measures last year but the proposals eventually died in the House from inaction. EXEMPT SOME SMALL BUSINESS OWNERS FROM JURY DUTY (H 1570) – A bill heard by the Judiciary Committee would exempt from jury duty a person who is the sole owner of a business, if their juror service would require them to close the business while serving on the jury. Current law provides several exemptions from jury duty including if a person is under the age of 18; cannot speak and understand English; has a physical or mental disability that makes them incapable of satisfactorily rendering juror service; has been convicted of a felony within the past seven years; or is solely responsible for the daily care of a permanently disabled person living in the same household whose health would be adversely impacted due to the caregiver’s juror service. “Jury duty is one of the most basic responsibilities of citizenship in a democracy, but the law has long recognized there are some instances in which an individual cannot carry out this duty,” said sponsor House Minority Leader Rep. Brad Jones (R-North Reading). “Small business owners help drive our economy and maintain a spirit of community. In some cases, these men and women operate their businesses completely by themselves, or with minimal assistance. [The bill] recognizes their important contributions to the commonwealth as a whole and exempts them from juror service if performing that service would require the closing of the business.” MAKE ELECTION DAY A LEGAL HOLIDAY (H 3004) – The Committee on State Administration and Regulatory Oversight held a hearing on a proposal that would make Presidential Election Day, every four years, a statewide holiday. "The United States is one of the few first-world economies that does not recognize Election Day as a holiday,” said sponsor Rep. Tackey Chan (D-Quincy). “The legislation will reduce the barriers that voters who are forced to choose between voting or taking time off from work face." NEW TAX ON REAL ESTATE SALES (S 1771) - The Revenue Committee held a hearing on a measure that would allow cities and towns to impose a transfer tax of between .5 percent and 2 percent on real estate transactions above $1 million. The city or town would decide whether the buyer or seller pays the tax. If the county’s median sale price for a single family home is below $750,000, the bill allows cities and towns in those counties to set their own threshold for when sales are subject to the new tax, provided that the threshold is above their county's median single family home sales price.All funds raised by a local transfer fee would be dedicated to affordable housing production and preservation. "Massachusetts is in the midst of an extreme housing crisis,” said Sen. Jo Comerford (D-Northampton). “We do not have enough affordable housing and we are not building enough affordable housing. This bill is a flexible tool that would allow a municipality, if it chooses, to place a fee on the sale of luxury real estate. The revenue generated would stay in that municipality and be used to develop affordable housing. Many cities and towns across the commonwealth are looking for a tool to build more affordable housing and this bill provides an effective option." Rep. Dylan Fernandes (D-Barnstable) filed a similar bill (H 2788) in the House. It applies only to sales of more than $1 million. “The housing crisis in Massachusetts is eroding our communities, hurting our economy and making our state less competitive,” said Fernandes. “Allowing cities and towns to have a mansion tax on multi-million dollar home sales to support housing will raise the capital necessary to meet the scale of the crisis. For the ultra-rich, paying a 1 or 2 percent fee on a multi-million dollar home is a rounding error. But for the middle class, it is a lifeline.” RAISE AGE AT WHICH A PERSON CAN ENTER A POLICE FORCE (S 1712) – The Committee on State Administration and Regulatory Oversight held a hearing on a bill that would raise from age 32 to 40, at the time of their entrance exam, the maximum age that an applicant may enter the police force. “Simply put, people in their late 30s are in proficient physical and mental condition to serve and protect their communities,” said sponsor Sen. Patrick O’Connor (R-Weymouth).“Today, police departments across the commonwealth face staffing challenges, and [by] allowing for a broader range of applicants, we hope to help remedy these challenges.” MUST LEARN HOW TO USE AN AED AND TRAIN IN CPR IN ORDER TO GRADUATE HIGH SCHOOL (H 492) – A bill heard by the Education Committee would require public high school students to be trained in the use of an automatic external defibrillators (AED) and have training in cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) as a prerequisite for graduation. “No one has died because they couldn’t add a column of numbers, spell a word or punctuate properly,” said sponsor Rep. Pat Haddad (D-Somerset). “But people die every day because people don’t know the basic hands only CPR or they don’t feel confident to use an AED. RESTAURANTS MUST HAVE WRITTEN MENU (H 196) – The Children, Families and Persons with Disabilities Committee held a hearing on legislation that would require restaurants to have available on the premises and provide, upon customer request, a set of photographic or visual menus which contain a written description accompanied by a photo of each food and drink item. “I was inspired to file the bill after a student from Leicester Middle School and her mother visited my office hours,” said sponsor Rep. David. Leboeuf (D-Worcester).“The student expressed how she noticed how difficult it was for non-verbal individuals to order at a restaurant and her mother, who worked in human services, also shared some anecdotes. This bill would make it easier for our nonverbal citizens to patronize local businesses by requiring restaurants to have one version of a picture menu available.” QUOTABLE QUOTES “Protecting the people of Massachusetts is my highest priority, and the best way to accomplish that goal is to forge close working relationships with our state and local partners. Federal resources like this are invaluable in the support they provide for comprehensive public safety solutions and resources specific to the unique needs of Massachusetts communities.” ---Acting U.S. Attorney Levy announcing that $118.3 in federal grants has been allocated to Massachusetts to support public safety and community justice initiatives. “Lack of access to menstrual care is a deal breaker for women. Without these items they can’t attend class, go to work, or take care of their families during their period. Many of these students have overcome incredible barriers to get to college, and we won't let period poverty be the one that holds them back." --- Founder and Executive Director of Dignity Matters, Kate Sanetra-Butler on celebrating the two-year anniversary of the organization providing free period products to students who are fighting “period poverty” -- the inability to pay for period supplies. “With ResilientMass, our administration is leading by example in preparing for mounting extreme weather events. This summer brought dangerous weather impacts to our communities and the impacts have been devastating. ResilientMass ensures that Massachusetts is well positioned for federal funds, while continuing our nation-leading work on climate.” ---Gov. Healey unveiling a Statewide Hazard Mitigation and Climate Adaptation Plan, known as ResilientMass, detailing 142 actions across state agencies including establishing an Office of Climate Science, making the state building code more resilient and updating MBTA design standards. "Folks are coming in through the border because they're fleeing horrific circumstances. But when you have this many people in a shelter, in a motel, or in an unsafe setting, it's just not something that we want, we can continue. So we're really hopeful that we'll get some assistance.” ---Lt. Gov. Kim Driscoll predicting the Bay State is going to run out of places to shelter newly arriving immigrants and other families without housing very soon. 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. During the week of October 9-13, the House met for a total of one hour and 32 minutes while the Senate met for a total of one hours and one minute. Mon.

Page 16 THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, October 20, 2023 avavvyvy avvy S iorn oreniioor a avvy iori by Jim Miller Protecting Your Pets After You’re Gone Dear Savvy Senior, What is the best way to ensure my pets are taken care of after I’m gone? I have two dogs and a cat that are my four-legged family, and I want to make sure they’ll be well taken care of after I die. Solo Senior Dear Solo, It’s a great question. Every year, approximately 500,000 cats and dogs enter shelters when their pet parents experience an emergency or pass away. Without a proper plan in place for the future care of your pets, they are at risk of ending up in a shelter where they could be euthanized. To avoid this terrifying scenario and ensure your furry family is cared for both physically and fi nancially after you’re gone, you should consider including them in your estate plan. Talk to your attorney about how to insert them in your will or trust in accordance with your state’s laws. Here’s what you’ll need to do. Wills If you already have a will or are planning to make one, you could simply add in a trusted caretaker clause for your pets, along with an alternative if your fi rst choice falls through. You should also set aside money in your will for your pet’s care with an explanation of how the funds should be spent. To determine how much to leave, multiply your pet’s annual food, care and medical costs by their life expectancies. You may want to add a separate document, called a letter of instruction, describing your pet’s routine, food and medication. But be aware that even with this provision in your will the caretaker is not legally obligated to follow your instructions, spend the money as you intended or send the pet to another caretaker that you’ve named. Once the money is distributed to the caretaker, it’s an honor system. Trusts Another option is to create a pet trust, which provides more legal protections. Depending on your state’s laws (see aspca. org/pet-care/pet-planning/pet-trust-laws), you could set up either a revocable pet trust, which can be changed or canceled during your lifetime, or an irrevocable pet trust that can’t be reversed. A pet trust can be completely separate or part of an existing trust that encompasses your other assets. Along with appointing a trustee to manage your trust’s fi - nances, you name your pet’s caretaker (who could also serve as the trustee), and any alternative caretakers, as well as an optional trust protector for added oversight of the trustee given that the benefi ciary (your pets) can’t defend their own rights. Unlike a will, the caretaker has a fi duciary duty to follow your letter of instruction if you include one. The cost for a living trust range anywhere between $1,000 to $3,000, while a will typically costs between $200 and $1,000. There are also cheaper do-it-yourself resources for making a simple will or trust, like Nolo’s Quicken WillMaker & Trust (Nolo.com, $99) and Trust & Will (TrustandWill. com, $159). Or, if that’s more than you’re willing to pay, you can make your will for free at FreeWill.com or DoYourOwnWill.com. Other Arrangements If you don’t have anyone who would be willing to take care of your pets after you’re gone, you should make arrangements to leave them to an animal retirement home, a rescue, humane society, pet care program or other animal welfare group. Many of these organizations fi nd new homes for pets or off er lifetime care but may require a fee or donation. Talk to your veterinarian about the options available in your area. Send your senior questions to: Savvy Senior, P.O. Box 5443, Norman, OK 73070, or visit SavvySenior.org. Jim Miller is a contributor to the NBC Today show and author of “Th e Savvy Senior” book. Christopher Rosa City of Malden Tree Warden October 20, 27, 2023 Girls’ soccer team picks up win against Shawsheen By Emily Brennan M ystic Valley defeated Shawsheen 6-2 Thursday afternoon, their second meeting of the season. With the victory, the Eagles improved to 8-3-1 overall on the season. The Eagles off ense struck fi rst, taking a 1-0 lead only four minutes into the game when senior forward Reilly Hickey scored off a Lucia Antonucci free kick. Mystic Valley took a 2-0 lead just under 15 minutes later when Antonucci scored off an assist from sophomore winger Julia Kearns. Shawsheen battled back hard and scored, putting the pressure on the Lady Eagles to put a stop to the momentum shift. The Eagles decided they weren’t done scoring in the fi rst half as Antonucci found Hickey in the 37th minute of play to put Mystic Valley up 3-1. In the second half, with a formation change to a 4-5-1, MV focused on possession and connecting passes to take control of the game. Mystic Valley extended the lead to three (41) in the 60th minute of play when Hickey scored her third goal of the game, this time assisted by Evie Reynolds. After trailing for most of the match, Lucia Antonucci the Rams made a late game push and scored their second goal of the game in the 70th minute of play. Exactly two minutes later, Mystic Valley netted a fourth goal – coming from Kearns – to put the game out of reach for the Rams. MV would score one again from Hickey, her fourth and final goal of the game. Emily DeLeire played the entire game in net for the Eagles, making fi ve saves in the win.
