Mayor Gary Christenson was named the Mystic Municipal Awardee, which honors the offi cials and staff in the communities of the Mystic River watershed who have made an outstanding contribution to improving the condition of the watershed. The Malden River, which was named for one of the cities it runs through, was once tidal and fl owed from Spot Pond Brook down to the Mystic River and Boston Harbor. But more than a hundred years of industrial and commercial development has forever changed this river. It has been buried, channelized and walled-off from the community.

Mayor Christenson has supported many of the eff orts of MyRWA, such as the Malden River Vision Plan and Human Health Risk Assessment. He was an early adopter of the Northern Strand Community Trail – after 25 years of community-driven advocacy and municipal leadership, this path will see $13 million in improvements in 2020. Most recently, he enthusiastically supported our “Malden Works” proposal, setting the course for development of a waterfront park that incorporates the ideas of the many diverse communities that make Malden so unique. “Over the years the mayor has attended countless public meetings, ribbon cuttings and groundbreakings. And at the end of every meeting we have with him, he asks, “What can I do to help?” While these aren’t easy problems to solve, having a local leader who listens to individuals and community groups – like Friends of the Malden River – is a critical ingredient,” said Mystic Greenways Director Amber Christoff ersen, who presented the award to Christensen at the annual meeting of MyRWA on October 22. In addition to recognizing Christenson, MyRWA elected new board members, provided a brief summary of the programmatic and fi nancial highlights of the year and honored the following three additional awardees: Encore Boston Harbor – Mystic Champion Awardee; Julie Berkman – Volunteer of the Year; and Massachusetts Executive Offi ce of Energy and Environmental Aff airs Secretary Kathleen Theoharides – Ripple Awardee. City grapples with low voter turnout By Barbara Taormina C andidates in this year’s election presented different ideas and opinions on a range of issues, but most agreed on one thing: the 27 percent voter turnout was abysmal. Voter participation varied in different precincts throughout the city with turnout hitting a high of 42 percent in Ward 3, Precinct 2 and a low of 14 percent in Ward 8, Precinct 2. But most precincts fell short of City Clerk Greg Lucey’s conservative prediction of 30 to 32 percent. “It was terrible,” said School Committee Vice Chair Leonard Iovino, who won an eighth term representing Ward 4 on the committee this week. Iovino said he remembers going to the polls with his parents when he was a kid. “Voting was instilled in us,” he said. “People fi ght and die for something we now Pooh-Pooh.” Joseph Gray, who won the Ward 6 seat on the School Committee, said he wasn’t surprised by the numbers. “I was expecting a low turnout,” he said. “That’s typical of Malden and other cities near here.” He’s right. Although Medford saw a turnout of 34 percent of its registered voters, turnout was 25 percent in Somerville and Everett. Boston’s turnout of 17 percent has revived calls for lowering the voting age to 16. “The weather was lousy; it was cold and damp, and you can’t really blame seniors who didn’t want to come out,” said Iovino. But Iovino feels there are othVOTER | SEE PAGE 10 Mayor awarded Mystic Municipal Prize

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, November 8, 2019 Page 3 Drama, strife, irony – Malden’s City Council ward races had it all By Barbara Taormina T hree ward races for seats on the City Council ended with stories that won’t and shouldn’t be forgotten. In Ward 3, Metropolitan Area Planning Council Communications Director Amanda Linehan won a highly competitive race over Community Preservation Committee Chair Julianne Orsino by 31 votes. Linehan’s margin of victory was less than half of the 65 blanks counted in the race. “We are thrilled that our eight months of hard work paid off with a win, and we look forward to bringing a progressive voice to the City Council,” said Linehan, who encouraged Ward 3 residents to reach out to her anytime. Linehan congratulated all the candidates and campaigners in this year’s election, especially fi rst-time candidates who took a chance and threw their hats into the ring. “Giving voters real choices in local elections is important for a healthy democracy, and I applaud all those who ran to serve Malden,” she said. Ward 3 voters had a real choice between Linehan – a pro-growth advocate for affordable housing who ran a well-funded and professional campaign with a consultant, campaign software and an original logo designed for mailings – and Orsino, a slow-growth proponent who ran a grassroots campaign with a Malden-fi rst approach to residential development. Still, the vote was essentially split, and Linehan will need to fi nd ways to connect with residents who supported Orsino. Ward 5 incumbent Barbara Murphy won her bid for another term over challenger Danyal Najmi with 65 percent of the vote, which was just shy of a two-to-one margin. “I was pleased to see the support from the ward for me and the platform I stand for,” said Murphy, who thanked Ward 5 voters for their continued faith in her. During her time on the City Council, Murphy has racked up a long list of accomplishments that includes creating the community garden, establishing a citywide 25-mileper-hour speed limit and launching the City Council’s Waterfront Access Committee. Her campaign stressed local quality-of-life issues and her vision for Malden as a community of strong neighborhoods. Najmi’s campaign focused on the regional housing shortage and solutions, such as easing zoning restrictions to allow homeowners to add in-law apartments to their property and developing new housing projects on the Malden Hospital site and along the Malden River. Najmi also called for more educational and economic opportunities for the city’s ethnic communities, extending voting rights to noncitizens and designating Malden as a sanctuary city. The Ward 5 race was on track to offer voters a choice between two candidates with very different priorities and DRAMA | SEE PAGE 14 Nursing home or your home? Know your options.

At his victory celebration, the campaign with a fi nal tally of 3,482 votes, or just over 40 percent of ballots cast, in the mayoral race. Christenson gave a short, jubilant speech that highlighted the eff orts and energy of his campaign staff and supporters. He made no mention of Matheson. “Voters of Malden sent a clear message that how we act matters,” he said. “Over the past eight years, we have tried to set a tone of civility and respect for all.” But the mayoral race was not http://www.sabatino-ins.com SABATINO 564 Broadway Everett, MA 02149 617-387-7466 Hours of Operation are: Mondays - Fridays 9am to 5pm Saturdays by appointment only particularly civil or respectful and at certain points it was just ugly.

On the issue of residential deLike us on Facebook advocate newspaper Facebook.com/Advocate.news.ma velopment, Matheson said that Christenson had a record of providing sweetheart deals to developers, and he highlighted the mayor’s support for a dense housing development on the Malden Hospital site. Matheson suggested that Christenson’s support for residential development that increased school enrollment and provided no affordable housing showed a disregard for the city’s low-income residents.

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, November 8, 2019 Page 5 MAYOR | FROM PAGE 4 that argued Matheson was misleading voters to mask a lack of any meaningful accomplishments during his eight years on the City Council. Christenson added that as a member of the Metro Mayors Taskforce he voted against committing to additional housing production in Malden. As for Malden Hospital, Christenson said he opposed a dense development on the site, and he blamed Matheson’s lack of leadership on the Hospital Redevelopment Committee for failing to achieve any results. The problem with all of that isn’t just that Matheson voted to approve the special permit for the huge Jefferson Group apartment complex on Pleasant Street or that Christenson did urge the City Council to consider Fellsmere Housing Group’s proposal for a large residential development on the hospital site. It’s the “sweetheart deals,” the “disregard for low-income residents,” the “lack of meaningful accomplishments” and the “lack of leadership.” The candidates ripped each other on diff erent issues throughout the campaign. And their supporters followed their lead and took to social media sites to post rants and tedious exchanges that ranged from mildly insulting to vile. Even after the votes were counted, the tension between the campaigns continued. At Christenson’s victory celebration, Business Development Director Kevin Duffy welcomed the crowd to the “Matheson retirement party.” Another Christenson supporter gleefully announced that Matheson had lost in one of the precincts in Ward 3 which he represents. Christenson’s decision not to mention Matheson during his brief speech to supporters was not exactly the stuff gracious winners are made of. Meanwhile Christenson and Matheson supporters are back at it discussing the candidates’ campaign fi nance reports and particularly Christenson’s decision to pay $56,000 to Jim Alexander’s company, The Campaign Institute, for campaign consulting. Still, Christenson did offer some thoughts that might have nudged residents toward unity in the wake of the campaign. He told his supporters they share the same values and the same vision of Malden as a great place with a promising future that will trump its proud past. “We agree we will work hard to continue the progress we’ve made to make Malden a better place for everyone,” he said. 505 Broadway Everett, MA 02149 Tel: 617-387-1120 www.gkdental.com • Family Dentistry • Crowns • Bridges • Veneers/Lumineers • Dental Implants • All on 4 Dental Implants • Emergency Dentist • Kid Friendly Dentist • Root Canals • Dentures • Invisalign Braces • Snap On Smile • Teeth Whitening We are the smile care experts for your entire family In House Dental Plan for $399 (Cleanings, X-Rays, Exams twice a year and 20% OFF Dental work) Schedule your FREE Consultations today Enjoy Everett’s Unique Steak House Residents Hien Nu and Jason Law supporting mayoral candidate John Matheson outside the Beebe School on Election Day.

Page 8 THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, November 8, 2019 Thoughts for a Happy Thanksgiving By Virginia Ruane T hanksgiving time is here! My son and his wife invited me to their home for Thanksgiving Dinner. I am delighted! That’s my excuse when something does not come out the way I thought it should or when I repeat myself. One might think that I spent several hours rolling dough, bake this pie?” Of course, I said, “Yes, I did.” He replied, “Virginia, you can always tell a homemade apple pie.” All I said was “Thank you, Bill. You sure can!” That’s one of my best-kept secrets. Another little tip to make your Thanksgiving dinner special: An hour before your guests arrive, put a big pot of coff ee on, and the aroma will circulate through the home, and I guarantee almost every person that comes in will say something like, “Oh, it smells so comfy and warm here. I’m so happy to be here!” To make a Thanksgiving Day His wife cooks just like I did. I asked, “What would they like me to bring?” They responded, “Bring your favorite dessert.” Great, I thought, since I have a specialty for when I am asked to dinner anywhere. I immediately responded, “I’ll bring apple pie and ice cream.” The whole family was happy with my choice. Of course, I have probably told this story before, but I will repeat myself and share it with you once again. Just to remind you, I’m not as young as I was. peeling apples and measuring sugar and cinnamon. However, I have a secret! I have saved myself hours of toiling over a hot stove. My secret is that the pie is a Mrs. Smith’s frozen apple pie. All you have to do is take it out of the box, put it in the oven and “bake” it. It says that right on the box. You don’t have to say another word. Everyone will love it. At one of my get-togethers, a guest asked, “Virginia, did you complete, we always hope there is a good football game locally to attend or watch on TV. That makes for a lot of excitement to add to the day. And we want lots of family and friends to watch it with us. Thanksgiving is always a very special day. We all have a lot to be thankful for: our families, plenty of good food to eat, to practice our faith whatever it may be, and our wonderful country. When we count our blessings, we are rich in every way. Happy Thanksgiving! —Virginia Ruane is a lifelong resident of Malden. Please send comments and suggestions to virginiaruane@aol.com.

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, November 8, 2019 Page 9 Malden Catholic welcomes more than 250 future Lancers at Open House M alden Catholic High School had its largest Open House in more than seven years, welcoming over 250 future Lancers on Sunday, October 27. This was the school’s largest attendance for a single-day event. As they entered through the doors of 99 Crystal St. in Malden, prospective students and their parents were greeted by a team of Malden Catholic students, parents and alumni who were there to answer questions, organize tour groups and ensure the beginning of an overall exciting day. Headmaster John Thornburg kicked off the Open House with a presentation for families and prospective students and emphasized the fact that historically Malden Catholic graduates have produced tremendously successful outcomes post-graduation. “Malden Catholic graduates graduate from four-year colleges at a rate that is 50 percent higher than the national average,” stated Thornburg. “The average Malden Catholic graduate passes more Advanced Placement tests than 97 percent all public high schools north of Boston.” Richard LeBranti (’94), founder of Doble LeBranti Financial Group, shared stories regarding his personal accomplishments and credited his Malden Catholic education for much of his success in life. Thornburg reinforced that Malden Catholic is one of the only schools in the country that has a distinct boys and girls division under one institution, and that after school hours are completed, boys and girls have the chance to partake in competitive athletics and a wide array of shared extracurricular and service activities.

We will be showing a “Throwback Classic” about A League of Their Own. The movie stars Tom Hanks, Geena Davis, and Madonna and was directed by Penny Marshall.

He feels the high number of apartments in those neighborhoods has attracted many new residents who are young, professional renters with a limited interest in local government. It’s a transient population that doesn’t have the same interest and investment as families movie is based on the lives of the women who played for the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League during the 1940s and 1950s. Helen Nordquist played from 1951-1954 and she is a pioneer in women’s sports. She will be honored and will be inducted into Malden High School’s Golden Tornado Club Hall of Fame on November 23, 2019. Malden Public Library is showing A League of Their Own in honor of Helen Nordquist’s amazing accomwith children and homes, he said. But longtime political strategist Nicholas Forgione, who was involved with several campaigns this year, thinks this year’s low turnout was due to more than an infl ux of renters. “I think it’s a combination of indolence for voters, a common distaste for politics, anger and the negative mayor’s race,” he said. Forgione suggested that voters in Ward 8 may have passed on the election because they feel abandoned by city govplishments! TIME Magazine writes that the movie is “Energetic, full of goodwill and good feelings” and Entertainment Weekly writes, “League…represents a breakthrough in women’s sports movies: It’s a celebration of sport for sport’s sake.” This fi lm is free and open to the public and is accessible.

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, November 8, 2019 Page 11 IMMIGRANT | FROM PAGE 8 present, “Thank you, not only for joining us this evening, but for coming to this country and making us stronger.” This year’s nominees were 38 entrepreneurs from 26 countries. More than 2,000 people in 39 communities, from Hyannis to Springfi eld, have jobs because of them. Winners were selected from four categories that represent four sectors where immigrants have an outsized impact: Neighborhood, Life Science, High-Tech and Growth. Although they created four very diff erent businesses in diff erent industries, they all share a desire to have a positive impact on their community, employees, industry and the United States. Larry Kim is an immigrant from Canada and the recipient of the 2019 Award for Neighborhood Business. He founded WordStream, Inc. in 2008 and MobileMonkey, Inc. in 2017 in Boston. He has given jobs to nearly 1,000 people over the past decade and, through his technology, has helped thousands of other businesses to grow. Kim said, “This is the most meaningful honor of my professional career.” In accepting the award, he said that he sees entrepreneurship as a virtuous calling because, “As immigrant entrepreneurs, I believe our most valuable contribution to society is in leveraging our unique pioneering spirit to create tens, hundreds or even thousands of meaningful job opportunities.” Yessy Feliz is an immigrant from the Dominican Republic and the recipient of the 2019 Award for Neighborhood Business. In 2012 she founded doggy daycare, boarding and pet food retailer Tails, Inc., the fi rst of its kind in her Jamaica Plain neighborhood. Feliz sees her business as not only a way to serve her customers but also a way to provide careers and economic development to the community. She thanked her employees; some of them have been with her from the start. She said she prefers to hire people “that society thinks are not good enough, and I give them second chances.” She says her goal is to “give up all my knowledge because at one point in my life I was given that, so the only thing I can do is give back.” In fact, she expects some of her employees will be ready to start their own businesses soon, and she says “I will be supporting them 100 percent.” Bernat Olle is an immigrant from Spain and the recipient of the 2019 Award for Life Science Business. He founded Vedanta Biosciences, and he was a member of the founding teams of several other life science companies. Vedanta, which employs 81 people, has developed clinical candidates for the treatment of infectious disease, infl ammatory bowel disease, food allergy and cancer using the human microbiome. In accepting the award, he said that despite all the anti-immigrant activity in recent years, “America is an extremely welcoming country to immigrants. We keep coming here, generation after generation, because Shown from left to right are Larry Kim, founder of WordStream and MobileMonkey in Boston; Yessy Feliz, founder of Tails, Inc. in Jamaica Plain; Joseph Ngaruiya, founder of A Better Life Homecare in Springfi eld; and Bernat Olle, founder of Vedanta Biosciences, Inc. in Cambridge. (Courtesy Photo) no other country on earth comes close to it when it comes to freedom and opportunity.” Joseph Ngaruiya is an immigrant from Kenya and the recipient of the 2019 Award for Business Growth. He founded A Better Life Homecare in Springfi eld to ensure that low-income elderly people could receive care at home with their families. A Better Life serves approximately 300 clients in Massachusetts and Connecticut, has grown employment by 233 percent in the last three years and earns approximately $5.5 million annually. In accepting the award, Ngaruiya thanked his parents who he said worked 90 hours a week when he was a newly arrived child in America, “just to put food on the table.” He also thanked his employees, to whom he said, “There is really no me without you.” Lastly, he thanked all the communiAN EVENING WITH AYLA BROWN AND ROB BELLAMY NOV. 21st, 2019 To benefit the Alexander Gentile Memorial Scholarship Fund.

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, November 8, 2019 Page 13 City announces Veterans Day Parade and Memorial Service on Monday T he City of Malden’s Annual Veterans Day Parade will kick off at 10 a.m. on Monday, November 11, at the corner of Elm and Pleasant Streets (across from the former American Legion). This year’s parade route will be similar to last year’s. Parade participants are advised to form up on Elm Street (near the Beebe Middle School) facing westbound. The parade will proceed west on Elm Street and turn left onto Highland Avenue. The parade will continue down Highland Avenue, turning right onto Malden Street and ending at the World War I Monument at Devir Park at the corner of Malden Street and the Fellsway. There will be a Memorial Service at the World War I Memorial once parade participants arrive. If you would like further information about the parade and/or would like to participate, please call the Malden Veterans Office at 781-3977139 or email kjarvis@cityofmalden.org. All groups are advised to call the Malden Veterans Offi ce to confi rm that they will be participating in the parade and to provide the name of a point of contact and telephone number for the group. American Legion Post 69 announces Veterans Day Commemoration T he Malden American Legion Post 69 will hold its annual Veterans Day Commemoration at noontime on November 11, at its post located at 75 Meridian Street in Malden.

VOTER | FROM PAGE 10 campaign, and we know that a big component of our win number, especially in Precinct 2, was having lots of first-time voters show up,” she said, adding that she would love to build on that strategy to increase turnout citywide. Iovino recalled that years ago his mother voted in the lobby of the senior housing complex where she lived. You could do down in your slippers, vote and be home in minutes. He thinks bringing back that system will boost turnout. “We are also reinstating civics into out curriculum,” he said. “I’m hoping that will heighten interest in municipal government and turn things around.” Forgione isn’t sure what, if anything, could be done to bolster voter turnout, since you can’t force voters to the polls. “If I could answer that with a real answer beyond some tired bromide about engaging the community and reaching out, I wouldn’t be wasting my time in municipal politics,” he said. “All joking aside, if I knew how to drive up voter turnout, I would sell that to both sides and use the money to buy a new couch and a chimp,” he added. ~ LEGAL NOTICE ~ COMMONWEALTH OF MASSACHUSETTS THE TRIAL COURT PROBATE AND FAMILY COURT Middlesex Probate and Family Court 208 Cambridge Street, Cambridge, MA 02141 (617) 768-5800 Docket No. MI19P5557EA Estate of:    Date of Death: 05/30/2019 CITATION ON PETITION FOR FORMAL ADJUDICATION To all interested persons: A petition for Formal Adjudication        has       of Malden, MA requesting that the Court enter a formal Decree and Order and for such other relief as requested in the Petition.

Hamelin questioned Najmi’s citizenship and added, “This deserves a call to the FBI. Could be a sleeper cell.” Kinnon, who had been talking online with Najmi, said Hamelin’s questions about the candidate’s citizenship were valid. Malden residents who read the exchange or reports about it were appalled and they TO OUR VALUED CUSTOMERS quickly condemned the comments. “It was awful,” said Murphy, who released a public statement that criticized the racist rhetoric and stressed that diversity and inclusiveness are basic tenets of her platform. And she reached out to Najmi to personally assure him she had no connection to the exchange between Kinnon and Hamelin. “To me that was most imMALDEN AUTO BODY OF EVERETT INC., HAS BEEN A LANDMARK ON RTE 99 IN EVERETT AND WAS RECENTLY TORN DOWN TO MAKE WAY FOR THE ENCORE RESORT CASINO PROJECT.

We agreed to continue our campaigns the way we have been running them from the beginning with no negativity and to focus on the issues.” In Ward 8, City Council President Jadeane Sica won 68 percent of the vote and a fourth term on the council after defeating challenger Andrew Vanni. Vanni, the fi nance director for the Town of Millbury, was a fi nalist during the city’s search for a treasurer in 2017. He withdrew his name from consideration for that position to take the job in Millbury but then emailed city councillors some negative information about another fi nalist. According to Vanni, he intended to send the message anonymously, but he accidentally entered then–City Council President Debbie DeMaria’s name in the “From” line in the email form. When DeMaria read the email, she asked police to investigate what she felt was a case of identity theft. The email was traced back to Vanni, and a hearing was held with a clerk magistrate. Vanni wrote an open letter of apology to DeMaria and, at her request, made a $500 donation to Bread of Life and Malden Overcoming Addiction. However, he has insisted there was no crime, no identity theft, no fraud – just a major misunderstanding. Vanni followed up that misstep with a challenge to Sica, who is winding up a highly productive and successful year as City Council president. Vanni, who did not raise or spend any money on his campaign and who seems to know little about some of Malden’s major issues, was not much of a match for Sica, who knows every nook and cranny in Ward 8 and thoroughly enjoys going to bat for her constituents. Still, Vanni ended his campaign with 252 votes from Ward 8 residents, which is something candidates may want to consider in the next election.

COLLEGE CLOSURES (S 2387) Senate 37-0, approved a bill that would require colleges and universities to post fi nancial information online in a publicly accessible fashion, undergo regular budgetary screening and alert state offi - cials if they face imminent closure. The bill was fi led in response to some college closures and mergers in recent years, most notably Mount Ida College which in April 2018 caught everyone by surprise with the unexpected announcement that it would shut down at the end of that school year. Under the bill, all higher education institutions would be required to alert the Board of Higher Education if they have any liabilities that create a risk of “imminent closure.” The measure also requires board members at every college and university to undergo regular fi duciary and accreditation training. If the board determines that a school does in fact face closure, the school would be required to create a contingency plan with details outlining how students can complete their programs, how their records would be maintained and how deposits would be refunded. The board would impose a fi ne of up to $1,000 per day if it determines that an institution has failed to comply with this new law. The board would also have the power to suspend state funding to the college or revoke degree-granting authority. “The Senate has continually placed an emphasis on education and making sure that students are aff orded every opportunity possible,” said Sen. Anne Gobi (D-Spencer), Senate chair of the Committee on Higher Education. “This bill adds necessary protections to make sure that students, faculty and staff are protected from abrupt school closings and provides greater transparency and accountability relative to the fi - nancial stability of all institutions of higher learning.” The House has already approved its own version of the bill and a conference committee will likely hammer out a compromise version.

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, November 8, 2019 Page 17 Mozart, Schubert begin 72nd M usic Director Robert Lehmann and North Shore Philharmonic Orchestra (NSPO) begin the Orchestra’s 72nd season on Sunday, November 17 with music of Franz Schubert and Wolfgang A. Mozart. The 3 p.m. concert at Swampscott High School Auditorium will feature Schubert’s Symphony No. 8 (popularly known as the Unfi nished Symphony) and Mozart’s Mass in C minor. Tickets will be available at the door for $30, $25 for seniors and students and free for children age 12 and under. Tickets can be purchased in advance at www.nspo.org. The concert marks the start of Maestro Lehmann’s 22nd year as the Orchestra’s Music Director. Schubert’s Symphony No. 8 was begun six years before the composer’s death in 1828; however, it contains only two season of North Shore Philharmonic Orchestra fully orchestrated movements, and musical scholars have debated whether the composer intended to write a traditional four-movement symphony. Mozart’s Mass in C minor was completed in 1783. The piece depicts the traditional outline of a Mass celebration in the order of liturgy and ritual. It is considered one of Mozart’s greatest works. It is grand in scale and reveals the infl uence in Mozart’s work of Bach and Handel, whom Mozart studied diligently. The NSPO, founded in 1947, plays a season of three subscription concerts at Swampscott High School Auditorium. After the November 17 “Fall” concert, the “Winter” Concert will be held Sunday, March 1, 2020, at 3 p.m. with a program that includes Alexander Borodin’s Polovtsian Dances, Pyotr Tchaikovsky’s Sym~ LEGAL NOTICE ~ COMMONWEALTH OF MASSACHUSETTS THE TRIAL COURT PROBATE AND FAMILY COURT Middlesex Probate and Family Court 208 Cambridge Street, Cambridge, MA 02141 (617) 768-5800 Docket No. MI19P5380EA Estate of: Anna Fusto Also known as: Anna Maria Fusto Date of Death: 07/27/2019 CITATION ON PETITION FOR FORMAL ADJUDICATION To all interested persons: A petition for Formal Probate of Will with Appointment of Personal Representative     Anna Maria Augeri of Malden, MA requesting that the Court enter a formal Decree and Order and for such other relief as requested in the Petition.

Sen. Jason Lewis 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 fi led. They note that the infrequency and brief length of sessions are misguided and lead to irresponsible latenight sessions and a mad rush to act on dozens of bills in the days immediately preceding the end of an annual session.

Page 18 THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, November 8, 2019 by Jim Miller Dear Savvy Senior, Can you write a column on ethical wills and how to make one? The attorney that made up my will recently suggested I write one as a tool to explain the intentions of my will, as well as express my thoughts and feelings, but I don’t know where to start. Interested Senior Dear Interested, An ethical will – also referred to as a legacy letter – can be a valuable complement to your legal will, as well as a wonderful gift to your family or other loved ones. Here’s what you should know along with some tips to help you make one. Ethical Wills Unlike a last will and testament, which tells your loved ones (and the legal world) what you want them to have, an ethical will (which is not a legal document) tells them what you want them to know. With an ethical will, you can share with your loved ones your feelings, wishes, regrets, gratitude and advice, as well as explain the elements in your legal will, give information about the money and possessions you’re passing on, and anything else you want to communicate. Usually no more than a few pages, the process of writing an ethical will can actually be quite satisfying. But be careful that you don’t contradict any aspects of your legal will or estate plan. If you’re having trouble with the writing, there are resources available to help you, or you can express yourself through an audio or video recording. Where to Start To craft an ethical will, start by jotting down some notes about what’s really important to you and what you want your loved ones to know. Take your time and remember that you’re not trying to write for the Pulitzer Prize. This letter is a gift of yourself written for those you love. After you’ve gathered your thoughts you can start drafting your letter. You can also revise or rewrite it anytime you want. And for safekeeping, keep your ethical will with your other legal documents in a secure location but be sure your executor has access to it. A safe-deposit box or fi reproof fi ling cabinet or safe in your home is a good choice. Get Help If you need some help, there are numerous resources available like Celebrations of Life (CelebrationsofLife.net), which off ers howto information and examples of ethical wills, along with a “Ethical Wills: Putting Your Values on Paper” book, and the Ethical Wills/ Legacy Letters workbook that you can purchase for $16 and $10 respectively. Another good resource is Personal Legacy Advisors (PersonalLegacyAdvisors.com), a company that off ers ethical will writing classes and workshops, along with personalized services like coaching, editing, writing and/or audio or video recording your ethical will. Prices will vary depending on the services you choose. They also sell a do-it-yourself guidebook “The Wealth of Your Life: A Step-byStep Guide for Creating Your Ethical Will,” by Susan Turnbull for $24. You also need to know that many people choose to share their ethical will with their family and friends while they’re still living so they can enjoy their reactions, while others think it should be read after their death. It’s up to you. Send your senior questions to: Savvy Senior, P.O. Box 5443, Norman, OK 73070, or visit SavvySenior.org.

The Book Thief by Markus Zusak (Grades 9–12) Winner of numerous awards including the American Library Association (ALA)’s Best Books for Young Adults and adapted into a feature fi lm, this book was described by The New York Times as “It’s the kind of book that can be life-changing, because without ever denying the essential amorality and randomness of the natural order, The Book Thief offers us a believable hard-won hope…” Common Sense Media states “This book will educate readers about living under Nazi rule, and it will inspire them to think about human nature and why some heroic people are able to put their lives on the line to do what they know is right.” The Last Book in the Universe by Rodman Philbrick (Grades 6–12) Newbury Honor author Philbrick’s story is set in an apocalyptic future in which the narrator, a boy with epilepsy, meets an older man who is one of the only people left on earth who appreciate books and literature. Scholastic’s review is as follows: “Both chilling and inspiring, the story is ultimately about those who have the courage to become conscious in a world that invites us to choose illusion and denial.

A review in School Library Journal is as follows: “The story of Amy Anne's personal triumph is also a celebration of literature, free speech, and fi nding one's voice…Hand this to book lovers, aspiring librarians, or any kid who wants to make a diff erence.” The Storyteller by Evan Turk (Grades 2–4) This book was written up by Kirkus Reviews in a starred review as “The art of storytelling is celebrated as a life-giving force in this enthralling picture book set in Morocco … Original storytelling with the feel of the best folklore.” While many cultures have folktales involving water, the School Library Journal says “this tale is unusual in using water as a metaphor for story: just as we need water to nourish our physical selves, we need stories to feed our spirits.” BOOKS | SEE PAGE 19

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, November 8, 2019 Page 19 BOOKS | FROM PAGE 18 Light in the Darkness: A Story about How Slaves Learned in Secret by Lesa Cline-Ransome (Grades 1–2) Kirkus review summarizes this beautifully illustrated book about a “slave mother and her daughter [who] learn to read in spite of the great danger inherent in their enterprise…Rosa’s mother awakens her at night to walk to a “pit school,” a hole dug in the ground and covered over where slaves gather to learn their ABC’s…In this tale, [the author] makes the point that learning was not just a dream of a few famous and accomplished men and women, but one that belonged to ordinary folk willing to risk their lives.” Booklist calls this book “Dramatic, deep-toned, full-page illustrations, mostly dark because of the nighttime setting, skillfully match the vivid, rich language of the text. The expressive faces of the characters shine through the darkness, clearly conveying the senses of determination, fear, and hope which permeate the story.” In addition to this story being a real-life tie-in with Fahrenheit 451, the Malden Reads committee is thrilled to include an author from Malden on its list of companion books. Arthur and the Scare-YourPants-Off Club by Marc Brown (Grades K–3) A review in School Library Journal says this book “…deals with an unusual theme for primary-grade audience censorship. Angry parents have demanded that a series of scary books be banned from the public library because they believe they are frightening their children, and Arthur and his friends decide to fi ght back.” The Librarian of Basra: A True Story from Iraq by Jeanette Winter (Grades K–2) The School Library Journal’s starred review calls this book “an important story that puts a human face on the victims of war and demonstrates that a love of books and learning is a value that unites people everywhere.” Barnes and Noble gives this overview: “In this incredible true story of a war-stricken country where civilians seem powerless in the face of battle, this feminist and inspirational tale about a librarian’s struggle to save her community’s priceless collection of books reminds us how, throughout the world, the love of literature can unite us all.” In addition to the books listed above that are companions to Fahrenheit 451, the following are tenth anniversary celebration books: Wonder by R.J. Palacio (Grades 4–8) In 2014, Malden Reads selected Wonder by R.J. Palacio as a companion book to the main book selection The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot, and we explored themes of self-identity, the power of BOOKS | SEE PAGE 21 Snow Shovelers Wanted (Everett, Revere, Chelsea) Earn extra money!

Ferrera • Interior acceptance, and the power of character, acceptance, and empathy. Current high school students who read Wonder in middle school will have opportunities to read it to middle school students this school year. We’re All Wonders by R.J. Palacio (Grades PreK–2) Booktrust says this book “… deals with issues of diff erence and bullying. The book ends on an uplifting note as Auggie muses that people can learn to see diff erently, implying that the acceptance he seeks may be closer than he thinks.” We’re All Wonders was read to children at the annual stargazing event in fall 2019, and older students who previously read Wonder will read We’re All Wonders to younger students this school year. Last Stop on Market Street by Matt de la Peña (Grades PreK–2) Winner of the 2016 Newbery Medal and several other awards, this book celebrates community, family, friendship, inclusivity and diversity, volunteering, and supporting each other – just as Malden Reads does! The Boston Globe wrote: “The sharp illustrations — in bold, and cheerful primaries — get CJ’s restless energy and curious postures exactly right. The voices of CJ and his grandmother carry the story along in subtle point and counterpoint so that at this book’s quiet close you feel like you’ve been listening to a song.”
