Take the Fed, for example. The central bank hatches policies wielding major economic impact, and yet the explanations and rationale for its policies can seem bizarre, self-serving, or just plain glib. With inflation having become an issue this year, the powers that be are devising some bogus “economic theories” that portray today’s higher inflation as a supposedly good thing. The Wall Street Journal’s Greg Ip recently reported on some of these “theories.” For example: “Economic theory says modestly higher, stable inflation should mean fewer and less severe recessions.” Oh, really? In the first place, the Fed hasn’t hit its inflation target for many years, so it doesn’t have any demonstrated ability to guarantee “stable inflation” at any level. Second, both high and low inflation periods have been followed by recessions. Thus, to suggest that there is a magical inflation figure that is a recession tonic is specious. In fact, inflation destabilizes the economy by increasing the uncertainties about the prices that both consumers and producers face. Inflation-induced price dislocations complicate economic decision-making, discombobulate production and employment, and so are one of the causes of inflation. Mr. Ip also reported that “if inflation ends up closer to 3% than 2% next year, raising the [Fed’s inflation] target would relieve the Fed of jacking up interest rates to get inflation down, destroying jobs in the process.” In this fairy-tale view, the experts are saying to simply let inflation rise–that is, let the purchasing power of our currency erode at a faster pace–and we will avoid economic pain. Question: If avoiding painful economic adjustments, such as shifts in employment, were simply a matter of boosting prices, why didn’t earlier generations of central bankers adopt permanently expansive monetary policies to create constant inflation and uninterrupted economic bliss for the people? This is the silly superstition (popular today under the rubric of Modern Monetary Theory) that the way to raise standards of living is to print more money. Again, if wealth creation were that simple, the process would have been mastered centuries ago and nobody would be poor. Instead, money printing can lead to hyperinflation–the destruction of money–which it already has in over 50 countries, always resulting in extreme societal impoverishment and disruption. Ip further writes, “In bad times though, inflation allows an employer to cut labor expenses by freezing pay so inflation gradually reduces real wages. That isn’t possible with zero inflation: The employer would have to cut jobs or pay.” Sorry, but workers have seen through that illusion for many decades with numerous union contracts including COLAs – cost of living adjustments – that protect workers against inflation’s not-so-stealthy real pay cuts. Also, American economic history includes periods when wages fell, but standards of living rose.

In the Malden Public Schools, all breakfast and lunch meals are available to all students free of charge. But despite this availability and the convenience of having the foods prepared and served at school, one parent said she often serves her children breakfast at home and frequently sends a homemade lunch off to school with them. “Half my home budget is already spent on groceries,” Kerry Long, a Forestdale parent, said. “Of course, I would like to save money on groceries and have my kids eat the school meals, but I have concerns over the nutritional value of the meals.” “The pizza sauce [on one slice of pizza] has more than half the recommended sugar that my child is supposed to have on a daily basis,” she said. “I’m very unhappy with the school lunches.” Another parent, Amanda Linehan, whose children attend the Beebe School, said she is pleased School Committee Member Spadafora is “putting s critical eye on [MPS] food service.” Linehan, how is also the recently reelected Ward 3 Councillor, said she and her children throughout the height of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 and part of 2021 picked up the school lunches at Beebe along with many others on a daily basis. “It was a way to have myself and my kids keep a connection to their school.” Since the return to in-person learning, Linehan said, “I have observed quality is deteriorating” in the school lunches. “I am grateful member Spadafora is taking this on. This [school food service] is a huge issue I hear about from my constituents.” The Beebe School eighth-graders specifically asked if the older students, like sixth-, seventh– and even some Beebe School eighth-graders – addressed the members, count on an even wider, deeper lens. With the food service contract with Whitsons Culinary Group, which has served the Malden Public Schools for a while, expiring at the end of the 202021 school year, the School Com

Ligia Noriega-Murphy announced on Monday night that the Malden Public Schools (MPS) next week will off er the fi rst of two Virtual Community Meetings on Equity and Diversity. Assistant Supt. of Diversity, Equity and Engagement Laryssa Doherty will lead the sessions, which are designed to enable the MPS administration to “hear from the community about the steps Malden Public Schools has taken to support diversity and equity, as well as identify next steps for the district,” according to a fl yer. “All are welcome,” Supt.

The first of the two-session series will be held on November 15 at two times: 10:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. The second session will be on December 13, also at two times: 10:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. A Zoom link enabling all to attend and participate will be made available on the Malden Public Schools website, www.maldenps.org, in adHigh School Information Night on Wednesday, November 17, will invite all Malden Public School eight-graders and seventh-graders, following a request by a middle-school parent at Monday’s Malden School Committee meeting. Parent Eden Garhart-Smith made the request Monday, which was immediately endorsed by MHS Principal Chris Mastrangelo and MPS Director of Guidance Erin Craven. “We’d be happy to include seventh-graders in our Information Night and we will do so this year,” Craven said during the course of her director’s report on Monday. Craven also noted that “Move Up Days,” which consist of in-person, guided tours of Malden High School by groups of eighth-graders who visit by respective schools, will be held on fi ve days (one for each K-8 school) between November 15 and December 2. “We will deliver a lot of information about all that Malden High School has to off er to our next classes to move up,” said Craven, saying that each Move Up Day will have a special touch, a Question-Answer Forum concluding each visit/tour, led by MHS students from that particular K-8 school visiting that day.

Despite impossible odds, and from all accounts I’ve heard, Karyn Lockhart ran one heck of a class reunion last Saturday night. A small but quality crowd of MHS Class of 1975 classmates gathered, drank responsibly and tried valiantly to read the name tags of fellow classmates whose name escaped them at the moment. Galooch was there as well as Freck, Hawk, Marse and Bunza; Lydia, Brenda, Judy and Bethie also. They all looked fabulous but I gotta be honest, my wife Pam and sister Barbara (Scibelli) stood out. Congratulations to Albert Spadafora on 50 years of being the congenial host with the most at the most iconic function hall in Malden’s history, Anthony’s on Canal Street. In the spirit of full disclosure, I am an Albert Spadafora fan boy. I became friends with Albert probably in 1978. As we came of drinking age, we were trying to find our footing as far as indoor drinking establishments went. We tried Mike’s Café – great neighborhood bar but the average age standing at the bar was around 70. We tried Maher’s Café but way too many guys from Medford for our liking. (Hey, it was the 1970’s: You hated the Yankees and anybody from Meffa equally – insert smiley face here.) We tried the Rosebud and DeMarco’s, but again too many older patrons for our liking and no girls! Then came the great awakening. After a softball game (the YMCA Outreach League) Greg Lucey suggested a place on Canal Street that would meet our criteria. Bam! It was love at first sight. We looked up to and admired Albert, his wife Franny, his father Tony and the real rock behind the bar and the business, Tony’s wife, Alice. I have not stopped patronizing Anthony’s. I have not stopped admiring Albert, his generosity or his altruism. But more importantly I have not stopped appreciating and respecting his mother, Alice. Here’s to 50 more years, Albert! “This is the end, beautiful friend, this is the end, my only friend, the end” – Solomon “Jerry” Levine was many things to many people. To his children he was Superman, Samson and Bruno Sammartino all rolled into one. To his co-workers at Agar Supply, he was their fearless leader. To my mom he was the charming and handsome blueeyed boy from the neighboring streets of the West End. To his grandson Anthony (Scibelli) he was much more. Written by Anthony from deep inside his soul and recited as we gathered to say so long, that trip to the Forestdale Cemetery his final: “I think many of us didn’t think this day could ever happen. My grandfather had the strongest personality out of anyone I’ve ever met. And that strength did not diminish over time, even if the way it expressed itself may have changed as the years passed. But that personality and his presence and the shadow that he cast was so strong, it didn’t seem possible that a day could come when he wouldn’t be here. But the impact of his presence, his personality, his stories, and his strength of character, that’s still here. And that will never diminish. As long as the people he knew remember him. And he was not an easy person to forget. “He was a man of strong principles and beliefs, and the force of his personality made a deep impression on everyone that met him. He could charm anyone, whether it was a telemarketer or his dentist. He was a totally unique presence, and a truly one-of-a-kind individual. My two earliest memories of my grandfather are both from when I was around 3 or 4. The first is sitting in the cabin of the truck he drove professionally for roughly 40 years. What I mostly remember is the overwhelming size of the truck. The other memory, also aged about 4, is sitting on his couch, as he showed me the new tattoos he had gotten on his back. Ray Bradbury wrote a famous book called The Illustrated Man, about a man covered in tattoos, and each tattoo told a different story, with a different theme and moral. The same could easily apply to my grandfather. “He was an endless well of aphorisms and stories, stories that frequently changed and got more detailed as his grandchildren got older. His life was long and complicated, and we can only wonder about how those stories would go on to change. One of his favorite fables was a story that he remembered as happening between Moses and his son, but as far as I could find was originally from Aesop. It involves a father teaching his sons that sticks are easy to break on their own, but when bundled together, the sticks are almost impossible to break. It was a story he told frequently, and he knew the truth of its message. “He lived his life on entirely his own terms. No matter what the outcome of his choices, they led to an astonishing 90 years without compromise. He was a complicated man, but he prized simplicity. He found contentment in his daily routines, whether it was reading the newspaper in the Stop and Shop parking lot or watching Judge Judy. He had that rare ability to control his life, and to tell his own story. “He once told my sister Jeri that he began smoking cigarettes when he was in the third grade. Which could mean he was as young as 8, but knowing the history of his education, he may have been closer to 11. He continued to smoke every day for roughly the next 75 years, when he abruptly stopped overnight. Because he didn’t want to smoke by himself, and without my grandmother. It was fascinating to see him able to change something that, to me at least, felt like such an integral part of his life, on a dime when he was in his late 80s. But it’s just one example of his incredible willpower, and his ability to live his life exactly the way he wanted to. “I’m sure wherever he is now, the two of them are enjoying a well-deserved smoke. “I want to close by using a phrase that he often did, when hearing news about someone younger than him, which at 90 was practically everyone. That’s what’s really sad about his passing is that he was just a kid.” Now you can enroll in a health plan with Medicare’s highest quality rating: CCA Senior Care Options.

Page 8 THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, November 12, 2021 REPORT | FROM PAGE 1 cally, the research addressed food security in this community, with the report including references dating back to 2019 and right through the height of the pandemic in 2020 to the fi rst half of this year, 2021. According to the national group Feeding America; food insecurity is defined as a lack of consistent access to enough food for every person in a household to live an active, healthy life. Further, the insecurity also involves the lack of access to food that is both accessible and nutritious. Malden Community Food Assessment Team member Renee Cammarata Hamilton told the City Council that a series of surveys around the community, where Malden residents participated, revealed a lot to the members who conducted them. The research began in 2019 with a pledge to gathceive food from providers such as Bread of Life and other sources. The most telling statistic described on Tuesday was “half of those surveyed said they have experienced food insecurity within the past two years.” Malden residents’ responser enough appropriate data to enable the task force to produce a quality report. Little did the team members know the storm that was brewing three months into 2020 in the form of the COVID-19 pandemic. It has been widely acknowledged that the pandemic has exposed and/or exacerbated existing food insecurity and a lack of food equity in Malden and around the region. Hamilton, who is an employee of Cambridge Health Alliance (CHA) and helps coordinate the CHA Community Health Improvement Team, said the report and its results “raise awareness of the food system” while enabling them to “work toward creating a plan of action.” Hamilton said a total 55 retail stores that sell food were surveyed on a variety of topics, and additionally, some 373 Malden residents were surveyed.

The MassINC survey is one of several recent studies showing that hunger, a prevalent force in some Massachusetts communities during the early months of pandemic lockdowns, remains an issue even as COVID-19 case counts fall, and that people who need help with food insecurity often struggle to get assistance. At Tuesday’s meeting, the members of the Malden Community Food Assessment Team had one major request for the Councillors: Please endorse our report. Their whole intent of compiling the report was to establish a baseline that would, preferably, be used to plot a course of future action. After a few comments, the City Council did vote unanimously to formally endorse the team’s report. “Access to fresh food is a continuing issue in Malden. The establishment of community refrigerators has helped our residents to lessen food insecurity,” said Ward 1 Councillor Peg Crowe. “We should consider making [community fridges] part of the infrastructure of our community.” “It’s a lot of work and a lot of detail,” Councillor-at-Large Craig Spadafora said. “It’s easy to see that it’s cheaper to buy Oreos and crackers as opposed to more nutritious foods – we know that.” “It’s great work; we have to keep building on it,” Councillor Spadafora added. Ward 5 Councillor Barbara Murphy also praised the work done by the group: “They have done a great job on this report.” The Councillor added that “a lot of good work is being done by the residents who have been working on the Community Gardens. They have had some great crops through the summer into fall and have been able to give a lot of fresh vegetables to the Bread of Life for distribution.”

Page 10 THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, November 12, 2021 SCHOOLS | FROM PAGE 1 new year began. Though the total enrollment at the start of the school year was several hundred below last year’s figure in late August, the new figure represents a 110-student rise over the 2020 districtwide population. According to Supt. Noriega-Murphy, the three largest grade level increases are in the kindergarten (+169), High School, Grades 9-12 (+89) and Pre-K (+82), with those three levels alone accounting for a full 68% of the increase. The Malden High School number is a bit deceiving as nearly 200 new students have enrolled in MHS since September 1, but about 100 have transferred out as well since mid-August. Across the district is the same story, as it is believed that over 700 new students are now enrolled in the Malden Public School, just since mid-August. Overall, the 543 student number rise is a nearly 10% increase – in just eight weeks. When there was a major surge of transfer students to be processed in the two weeks preceding the opening of school and most of the month of September, the previously named Malden Parent Information Center (PIC) was besieged by the numbers. Supt. Noriega-Murphy and her staff, particularly Assistant Superintendents Laryssa Doherty and Toni Mertz, addressed this wave of new students waiting to be processed by revamping the PIC in rapid fashion. The PIC was renamed Malden Public Schools “Welcome Center.” Additional fulltime and part-time staff members were hired and immediately put to work, particularly in language translation with regard to the processing. The changes resulted in a quicker and more efficient service, and the turnaround time from when caregivers applied for entry into MPS and the actual first day of school for the new students decreased dramatically. Supt. Noriega-Murphy commended all who have played a role in assimilating this surge of “newcomers,” as the MPS now refers to the new students. She noted the challenges faced and the work performed by administrators and educators in the school buildings as well as that of those in the Welcome Center in getting these newcomers off to a positive start in MPS. Others who addressed the School Committee later in the meeting on the subject included Ward 5 School Committee Member Adam Weldai and Jennifer McCabe, Director of English Language Education, who noted that 124 new English Language Learner (ELL) students have enrolled in the MPS – just since September 1. All told, there are now 1,186 ELL students in MPS, with the three largest clusters at Salemwood K-8 (355), Ferryway K-8 (226) and Malden High School (156). Ward 5’s Weldai said, “To put 50-100 new students into a school building in a span of just weeks is a major change. It’s yeoman’s work for everyone in that school – principals, assistant principals, guidance counselors, educators and other staff. “We hear a lot about the challenges, but we don’t hear about all the challenges,” Weldai said. “Our staff who helps all of these newcomers get off to a great start deserve all our praise and credit for what they do.” 100 years of cigar experience Our store is still open to serve you!

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, November 12, 2021 Page 11 Malden Democrats to meet Sat., Nov. 20 T he next regular meeting of the Malden Democratic City Committee (MDCC) will take place on Saturday, November 20, from 10-11:30 a.m. online via Zoom. These monthly meetings enable residents to connect with fellow Democrats, discover volunteer opportunities and learn about issues and candidates – locally, statewide, and beyond. MDCC meetings are open to the public, with DemBIKING | FROM PAGE 3 dents entirely by choice. Enrichment is closer to the traditional “nuts and bolts” of academia, with session offerings surrounded by coursework and academic support. Joy is, well, just as it sounds: students selecting something they either already love to do – or would like to try, So what brings Deric Tse and Slade Harding “Joy” on their “Gold Days”? Well, it involves two wheels and some pedals: biking. Both the new-to-MHS ninth-graders signed up for educator Mitch Abbatessa’s bicycling “Joy” session – outdoors, course – the very first time it was offered. Every other day, the ever-growing bicycling Joy Session students gather and go out and explore the Malden Northern Strand Community Trail/ Bike Path, which runs adjacent to the Malden High building. They are now repeat customers and have continued to “Flex” their interests. Furthermore, on a recent sunny Tuesday morning, Slade and Deric relayed an anecdote from the past weekend: “We met up over the weekend and went on a ride all around Malden and the paths near Encore in Everett,” Slade revealed, noting that other members of Abbatessa’s Bicycling Joy Session class hooked up for the ride with him and Deric as well. “Yeah, we have all become friends pretty quickly,” Deric confirmed. “We all like to ride around, and it’s fun to see each other on the weekends.” For Principal Mastrangelo, who recently learned of the students’ narrative, this was simply jackpot material. “That is a fantastic early result of the Flex Block program and really personifies the types of goals we have been hoping to achieve,” Mastrangelo said, “I can’t wait to share that with our team as we continue to monitor and review the program.” “Fortunately, we have been getting lots of positive feedback from everyone associated with Flex Block – most importantly ocrats and prospective Democrats especially welcome.

INFLATION | FROM PAGE 2 pay cuts are “impossible” is to ignore history. Ip cites two former “senior staffers at the Fed” who assert that if the Fed were to engineer inflation of 3% instead of 2%, then “unemployment would be 0.75 percentage points lower than otherwise.” This is another iteration of the discredited Phillips curve theory which states that when inflation rises, unemployment falls. Remember the 1970s? Both inflation and unemployment rose at the same time then in a grim scenario known as “stagflation.” Monetary authorities may be able to print money, but they can’t print jobs. In delicious understatement, Ip writes, “It is unclear if 3% inflation meets the Federal Reserve Act’s mandate for stable prices.” Of course it’s clear. By definition, prices aren’t stable whether they are rising at 3% or 2% per year. Ip also reports that several of President Biden’s economic advisers expect inflation to be 3% a year from now, so the Fed should raise its inflation target to 3% rather than try to lower inflation. What would that actually accomplish? By moving the goal posts of the Fed’s target to fit the actual economic reality of 3% inflation, I suppose the Fed would proclaim, “See how successful we’ve been?” But other than massaging the Fed’s reputation, Americans would take it on the chin. At 3% inflation, the dollar would lose half its value in only 23 years, instead of the 34 years that it would take at 2% inflation. Also, savers, who currently are earning about 0.1% in their bank accounts, would continue to have their wealth bled away by real interest rates being even more negative than they have been for the past decade-plus. Pardon the cynicism, but perhaps we need to consider the possibility that the elites in the Washington establishment are more interested in burnishing their own reputations than in pursuing sound economic policies. —Dr. Mark W.

During one of his recent visits to MHS, Councillor Winslow presented Principal Mastrangelo with a generous donation of four refurbished bicycles suitable for young adult riders as well as six new bicycling helmets. Winslow said he got some assistance from local students from the Malden Teen Enrichment Center (MTEC) fixing up some bicycles that had been in storage at the Malden Police Station and the helmets were donated by Bike to the Sea. Councillor Winslow said he was excited to hear of the new Malden High program and its emphasis on bicycling. “I have been a bicycling enthusiast since I was these students’ age and I’m very pleased to see our local high school students involved in programs such as these,” he said. Bike to the Sea was instrumental in moving forward the push to build the Malden portion of the Northern Strand Community Trail/Bike Path, which stretches from the Everett-Malden line on Medford Street across the city to the Malden-Revere-Saugus town line and is used by the MHS students. “We are so grateful to Councillor Winslow and his generous donation which will enable students who may not have their own bike to now take part in this class,” Mastrangelo said. “We truly value community partnerships such as these with our school and district.” Law Offices of Terrence W.

(Advocate Photos by Steve Freker) Rep. Clark releases new data on the Child Tax Credit’s impact on Massachusetts families U .S Representative Katherine Clark recently highlighted a new fact sheet from the U.S. Congress’s Joint Economic Committee that outlines how the Democrats’ Child Tax Credit (CTC) is already meeting the urgent needs of Massachusetts families by helping parents make ends meet and positioning the economy for stronger growth for generations to come. “The American Rescue Plan’s tax cut for families is working! This pandemic and its economic fallout have brought many Massachusetts families to their breaking point but since Democrats passed the American Rescue Plan last March, the extended Child Tax Credit – one of the largest tax cuts for families in U.S. history – has helped provide support to over 70,000 children in Massachusetts’ Fifth District,” said Clark. “Through the Build Back Better Act, House Democrats are continuing our work to help families and our economy to recover and thrive. The Child Tax Credit and the Build Back Better Act put the needs of families first and are key to building a just, inclusive, and equitable America.” In October, new CTC data shows, 72,000 children received payments totaling more than $24.3 million in the Fifth District. Another monthly payment will be sent on November 15. These successes prove the need to extend the expanded CTC through the Build Back Better Act. As outlined in a newly released White House fact sheet, the historic investments called for in the framework would bolster financial security and spur economic growth in Massachusetts by reducing taxes on the middle class and those striving to break into it. The American Rescue Plan was signed into law in March 2020 to help families recover from the COVID-19 pandemic. The Build Back Better Act extends the tax cut for families by continuing to provide families $300 per month per child under six or $250 per month per child ages six to 17. Critically, the Build Back Better Act also includes permanent refundability for the CTC, meaning that the neediest families will continue to receive the full CTC over the long run. Malden Democrats endorse Fair Share Amendment A t its monthly meeting on October 9, the Malden Democratic City Committee voted to endorse the Fair Share Amendment, a proposal to amend the Massachusetts Constitution. This measure, if approved by the voters, would create an additional tax of four percentage points on the portion of a person’s annual income above $1 million. Revenues raised would be used for “quality public education and affordable public colleges and universities, and for the repair and maintenance of roads, bridges and public transportation.” The proposed amendment has received the legislative action required to send it to the November 2022 ballot for approval by Massachusetts voters. The grassroots organization Raise Up Massachusetts has led the campaign for this amendment since 2015. An earlier, similar measure was approved by the legislature, but it was prevented from getting on the 2018 ballot by the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court due to a procedural issue; the current measure has followed a different procedure, which should prevent a similar challenge. According to the Raise Up Massachusetts website, “Independent polling conducted by MassINC in December 2020 found that 72 percent of MA voters support the Fair Share Amendment.” “I am very pleased that the Malden Democratic City Committee has endorsed the Fair Share Amendment,” said Malden-based organizer Keith Bernard. “This broad-based support is a reminder that with significant new revenue for education and transportation, the measure will have a very positive impact – not only on Massachusetts as a whole but especially on communities like Malden largely made up of working families.” Full text of proposed amendment Below is the full text of the proposed Constitutional Amendment. The source is a petition to the Massachusetts Legislature by State Senator Jason Lewis on January 18, 2019: “Article 44 of the Massachusetts Constitution is hereby amended by adding the following paragraph at the end thereof:“To provide the resources for quality public education and affordable public colleges and universities, and for the repair and maintenance of roads, bridges and public transportation, all revenues received in accordance with this paragraph shall be expended, subject to appropriation, only for these purposes. In addition to the taxes on income otherwise authorized under this Article, there shall be an additional tax of 4 percent on that portion of annual taxable income in excess of $1,000,000 (one million dollars) reported on any return related to those taxes. To ensure that this additional tax continues to apply only to the commonwealth’s highest income taxpayers, this $1,000,000 (one million dollars) income level shall be adjusted annually to reflect any increases in the cost of living by the same method used for federal income tax brackets. This paragraph shall apply to all tax years beginning on or after January 1, 2023.”

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, November 12, 2021 Page 13 Malden High’s Golden Tornado Club’s 35th Hall of Fame Banquet and Induction – Nov. 20 Doors will open for eight inductees and the 1973 Hockey Team By Steve Freker T he Golden Tornado Club, the booster organization for Malden High School athletics, will host its 35th Hall of Fame Banquet and Induction Ceremony on Saturday, November 20 at the Malden Moose Hall (562 Broadway, Malden). This year’s event, which is already a sellout, will recognize six former standout student-athletes from Malden High’s glory-filled sports past as well as the players and coaches from the 1973 Hockey Team, which is now acknowledged as the perhaps the best assembled in Golden Tornadoes lore. Special awards bestowed that night include the Distinguished Service Award, which will go to Don Nally, for his many years of service to the club, and the Golden Eagle Award. The Golden Eagle Award goes to Boys Volleyball Head Coach Dan Jurkowski. A former player, Kenny Nguyen, penned the winning Golden Eagle Essay on what Coach Jurkowski has meant to him and gets a $1,000 scholarship from the Golden Tornado Club. In addition to the 1973 Hockey Team, there will be six individual inductees, including: Michael Byrne (Class of 1972, football, basketball, baseball); Mario Fosco (Class of 1991, soccer and football); Kaitlyn DeVincentis (Class of 2005, softball); Rachel Timmons (Class of 2005, field hockey, basketball, softball); Anthony Pappagallo (Class of 2006, football, basketball, baseball); Annie Abber (Class of 2009, basketball and softball).

Dr. Daniel Kuritzkes, chief of the Infectious Diseases Division at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, said the number of cases is leveling off once again. “Things are slowing down, but gradually,” he said, adding that 1,000 to 2,000 cases are being reported every day for a positivity rate of two percent. Kuritzkes was also clear about what needs to happen to move away from the plateau and continue the downward trend. “The rest of the population that hasn’t been vaccinated needs to get vaccinated,” he said. In addition, Kuritzkes said “substantial transmission” has continued among school-age children. “They are the remaining vulnerable population,” he said. In Everett, 52 residents in the 0-19 age group tested positive for COVID-19 during the month of October. In September, 82 cases were reported. Regarding the vaccination rates, 64 percent of residents ages 12-19 have been fully vaccinated. Looking ahead, Kuritzkes said he does not see COVID-19 going away completely, adding that it could eventually become endemic much like influenza. “Unfortunately, I don’t see any reason for real optimism,” said Kuritzkes. David Cecere, spokesperson for Cambridge Health Alliance, said that while there have been significant improvements, the pandemic is not likely to go away any time soon. “While things are better than they were this time last year, we are still seeing COVID-related infections,” he said. “It’s premature to call for an approaching end to the pandemic.” Dr. David Hamer of Boston Medical Center agreed that COVID-19 cases have been steady since early September. He also said it is safe to “mix and match” vaccines when getting a booster shot. In fact, Hamer said he advises patients who received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine to get their booster shot using either the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine. However, he said there continues to be new waves of the virus. “There will be a constant risk of reintroduction; we’re coming down from our most recent wave,” said Hamer. “It’s still a pandemic.” Hamer also agreed with Kuritzkes in that the virus could become endemic. “We need to learn to live with it,” said Hamer. According to the state Department of Public Health (DPH), 4.7 million residents have been fully vaccinated and approximately 630,000 residents have received booster shots. However, the DPH also reported that 54,200 individuals have tested positive for COVID-19 despite being vaccinated. As of November 8, the total number of cases in Massachusetts had risen to 803,165, according to the DPH. Within that figure, COVID-19 has taken the lives of 18,689 residents. Putting that in perspective, the town of Foxboro has a population of 18,618, according to the 2020 census.

Serving as an assistant coach was Malden High School (MHS) alumnus and first-year teacher Witche Exilhomme. The reason he was back down on Macdonald Stadium’s field last year would have big implications for this year. In the offseason, now former Head Coach Steve Freker would step down from his head football coaching duties and pass them on to Exilhomme.

Trusts have spendthrift provisions that would offer protection to a child in the event of a lawsuit or divorce. Currently, there is no gift tax I f you plan on making gifts of appreciated property such as stocks or real estate, keep in mind that the donee of your gift will accept the property with a cost basis equal to your cost basis. The cost basis might be the purchase price of the original stock or real estate plus any improvements made to the real estate. If the real estate is rental real estate, the cost basis is reduced by depreciation taken over the years since first placed in service. Generally, it is best to gift assets that have not appreciated much, if at all. Cash is always a good asset to gift because there are no cost basis issues or date of death valuation issues. You must always consider whether or not you deem it best to make outright gifts to children or to make gifts to an irrevocable Trust for their benefit. An outright gift to a child that might have creditor issues or that might be involved in a in Massachusetts. The federal gift tax exemption is currently $11,700,000. Under the Biden Administration proposal, the gift tax exemption would be reduced to $1,000,000. The federal estate tax exemption is currently $11,700,000. The Biden Administration’s proposal is to reduce it to $6,000,000. The federal gift tax exemption and estate tax exemption are a unified exemption. You can either gift $11,700,000 federal gift tax free or die and bequeath $11,700,000 estate tax free, but you can’t do both. Although there is no gift tax in Massachusetts, taxable gifts (i.e. gifts in excess of $15,000 per donee) reduce the $1,000,000 threshold for being required to file a Massachusetts estate tax return. If you gave away $750,000 and were still left with $750,000 in assets at the time of your death, even though your estate ended up being less than $1,000,000, a Massachusetts estate tax return would still need to be filed. The threshold would have been lowered to $250,000 in estate assets. When you die with appreciated stock or real estate that is includible in your taxable estate (even though your estate might be less than $11,700,000 for federal purposes or $1,000,000 for Massachusetts purposes) your beneficiaries obtain the benefit of Internal Revenue Code Section 1014 and receives a new cost basis equal to the fair market value at the time of your death. The huge benefit to your beneficiaries is that when they sell the appreciated property shortly after you pass, there would be no capital gain or very little capital gain resulting in no capital gains tax or very little capital gains tax. Another benefit of Code Section 1014 is that the beneficiary of the appreciated property receives preferential long-term capital gains tax treatment even if the beneficiary sold the appreciated property within one year from the date of death. Remember, short term capital gains are taxed at ordinary income tax rates federally and are taxed at the rate of 12% in Massachusetts. It is always important to select what assets to gift and how to make the actual gift. The tax implications can be significant. Joseph D.

One of the qualities that stood out to Conefrey about Exilhomme was “he is a Malden High School graduate and he played football for the program.” He said that “it is always good to have someone return to help out who is familiar with his surroundings, so we are really excited to have him as head coach.” Freker expressed tons of appreciation for Exilhomme and his new achievement. “I was thrilled when Malden High selected Coach Exilhomme” because “I was hoping we got the right coach to lead the team forward and someone who had the right qualities we were seeking.” “Coach Exilhomme was the right guy we needed to lead the program and help our student athletes,” Coach Freker added. “[Coach Exilhomme] has an incredible amount of football knowledge, and most importantly, knowledge of dealing with life issues and with young student athletes who need direction.” Coach Freker said, “He is an excellent role model and has so much to share from his own life experiences that will be so valuable for these players as he coaches them this year and in the future.” He continued on, saying that Coach Exilhomme “developed a good relationship with the students and fellow coaches which will help the team succeed.” Commenting on his own experiences with Malden’s football program, Freker said, “It was a big honor to serve as head coach” since “I played for Malden High when I was in high school” and “I was a assistant coach for Malden High football for 19 years in the 80s and 90s.” Freker expressed how he has been “able to come back to coach baseball and football for the past several years and I was happy that I was able to see some of the student-athletes develop to become good citizens of the school.” One of Freker’s new responsibilities still has him contributing to the game in some form. He explained how he is assisting Athletic Director Conefrey at home games for football and other sports as a site coordinator to help with game management at the various fall events and venues. Coach Exilhomme was upfront and passionate about his feelings about becoming the Head Coach and what he plans to do with the program going forward. He explained how he felt “extremely proud; it is something I am very excited about, and I am excited about the future that we have as a coaching staff for the program. It is going to be very fun for the next few years.” Coach Exilhomme said he is pleased with his coaching staff’s commitment to help the team “compete to be the top team in the state, and we are ready to put in the work that is required on and off the field to reach that.” “Our coaching staff wants to teach kids how to be football players and that football does not stop on the field,” since “it continues to the classroom and when they become grown men and then if they want to start a family.” Exilhomme further stated that “we do not want it to just be on the field, but how the kids act in and out of school.” Talking more about his student-athletes, Exilhomme said, “I am excited about the number of players we have beCOACH | SEE PAGE 17

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, November 12, 2021 Page 15 GREATER BOSTON LEAGUE NOTEBOOK: Two former GBL QBs – Revere’s Boudreau & Everett’s Doherty – on Curry Football roster Despite rough record, MHS football brimming with optimism; what’s up with players with Everett ties helping end Tide’s playoff hopes... again? By Jake Taggert W ho knew two of the most decorated Greater Boston League (GBL) quarterbacks from the 2018-2019 seasons would end up on the same college football roster? That is the deal, however, this fall for Curry College Colonels Football, which features two former GBL standouts on its squad this year. Three-time Revere High AllStar QB Calvin Boudreau wears #10 for Curry Football. While the 6-1, 175 lb. Boudreau has not seen any action over the course of Curry’s 3-5 season thus far, he has certainly learned a ton of new football knowledge soaking it in as a freshman in that collegiate locker room. Boudreau might be the most versatile student-athlete Revere High has produced in the past decade. A three-sport starter, captain and league All-Star this past 2020 (into 2021) season, Boudreau shined for Patriot football, basketball and baseball, a true “throwback” three-sport athlete. One of Boudreau’s teammates this season is fellow freshman Duke Doherty, who formerly played quarterback for Everett High (two seasons: 2018, 2019) and his hometown Winthrop High Vikings (two seasons: 2017, Fall 2, 2020). Doherty played for Winthrop as a freshman then transferred to Everett for two seasons in 2018-2019. Following the 2018-19 school year, Doherty cut ties with Everett and returned to the Winthrop proCurry College freshman QB Calvin Boudreau has some good years ahead of him for the Colonels. (Courtesy/Curry College Athletics) gram this past fall. A lifelong resident, Doherty graduated from Winthrop High this past May. The 5-10, 200 lb. Doherty is not playing QB for the Curry Colonels, but he is listed as a running back. He has also not seen any game action this summer. While at Everett High for the 2019 season, Doherty announced over social media that he had verbally committed to the U.S. Naval Academy at Annapolis, Md., but that destination did not pan out. Three other former Everett High players are also on the Curry roster: junior Gabe DeSouza, who is a junior wide receiver and a North Andover resident; junior running back Chris Jenkins, a 5-9, 190 lb. Hyde Park resident; and freshman 6-0, 180 lb. defensive back Tyler David, an Everett resident. Both Boudreau and Doherty were Northeastern Conference (NEC) All-Star quarterbacks in 2019. Curry closes out the season tomorrow afternoon at 1:00 when University of New England (UNE) travels to Easton, Mass., in the season finale for both teams. **** Future promising for young MHS football Tornados; sub-varsity team is sitting at 7-2 Malden High first-year head Methuen QB Drew Eason’s parents, Paul and Tammi, are both Everett High graduates. (Courtesy Photo) coach Witche Exilhomme has not missed a play by his football players this season – all of his players and all of his teams, by the way. Coach Exilhomme, himself a 2012 MHS alumnus who starred as a former Golden Duke Doherty is a Curry College freshman running back. He played two seasons at Everett High (2018 and 2019) and two seasons for his hometown Winthrop High Vikings (2017, Fall 2, 2020). (Courtesy/Curry College Athletics) Tornado (2008-2011), obviously has not missed any of his varsity team’s action. But through some creative practice/film session scheduling, he has been on the sidelines as well for all of his Malden team’s Junior Varsity games. And he really likes what he sees. Why not? Following a JV win over next-door Everett High on October 29, the “Junior Tornados” improved to 6-2 overall (5-1 GBL). This win came just 16 hours after the Tide varsity bulldozered its way to a 43-0 victory the night before. According to Malden High sports lore afficionados, this was the first Tornado sub-varsity win – of any kind – in over a dozen years. Good stuff, says Coach Exilhomme. “We knew we had an excellent freshman class coming in this year, and they have been the foundation for this successful JV team,” he told the Advocate. “They play hard, they play smart and they will fight for that win. That is how we want all of our players to perform.” Quarterback Aidan Brett has been a standout in most of the games he’s started. He is a threesport athlete whose third sport coming into high school was soccer – not football – to go along with basketball and baseball. “He [Brett] never played football before, but he’s really taken to the sport and gotten better every week,” Exilhomme said. “That’s all we ask of all our players – work to keep improving.” In the 26-14 win over Everett, Malden High first-year Head Coach Witche Exilhomme talks to his JV football team after their most recent win (7-2) at Macdonald Stadium. (Advocate Photo) Brett hooked up all day with 6'5" sophomore split end Gabriel Vargas, who caught two TD passes of 58 and 35 yards to go along with several other receptions to put him well over 100 yards for the game. Zachary Johnson and Kevin Exilhomme, the head coach’s younger brother, scored the other TDs for Malden in that winning JV game. Coach Exilhomme said he is expecting over 35 players returning next season from this team and “a lot of athletes from other teams in our school interested in football for next year.” He also has been spending time with the Malden Pop Warner program this past fall and reports that a bevy of more young players are future Golden Tornados as well. “We will be pulling it all together in the offseason and we will be working very hard to put out a solid team next year,” he said. **** Another player with Everett ties plays key role in Tide playoff exit Friday night Three years ago it was a then little-known Central Catholic sophomore with a strong leg who sent Everett packing from the playoffs. That young placekicker, Nick Mazzie, made himself a part of CC Red Raider lore when he booted a 33-yard, game-winning field goal with 57 seconds left in overtime to beat heavily favored Everett at Everett Stadium, 23-20, in the MIAA Division 1 North Semifinal. If the Mazzie name sounds familiar, it should. Nick Mazzie’s dad happens to be longtime Everett Police Chief Steve Mazzie, who was decidedly “Mixed Emotions Central” that night. Fast forward three years to this past Friday – nearly to the day – Nov. 5 in Methuen. Still another kid with Everett ties helped end Everett football’s playoff run a whole lot earlier than expected. Sophomore Methuen High quarterback Drew Eason has had a fine season, not only for a 10th-grader, but for any high school quarterback. But could the 15-year-old kid with the names of two former successful New England Patriots passers (Drew Bledsoe and Tony Eason) hold the fort against Everett, which came into the game with one of the most experienced and talented defensive secondaries in New England? Apparently so. Eason threw for two TDs in leading Methuen to a 25-22 barnburner upset win in the first round of the MIAA Division 1 State Football Championship Tournament. Of course, there has to be an Everett connection. There was, as Drew Eason’s parents, Paul and Tammi, are both Class of 1995 Everett High graduates, growing up rooting for the Crimson Tide, right at the beginning of the Coach John DiBiaso Era (1992-2017). “This means so much to all of us,” QB Drew Eason said after the game, in an online report. “We came in as the underdog on our turf, and came out with the win.” “I heard stories from my parents about Everett, but they told me they bleed Methuen Blue now. It was amazing,” he added.

Notice of Intent to Demolish a Building regarding demolition permit application #CMID 039265-2021 for the building at the property known as and numbered, 12-24 Lebanon Street, and known by City Assessor’s Parcel ID # 134 654 421, which has been determined to be a Significant Building, in accordance with Title 4, Chapter 24, Code of City of Malden, the Demolition and Alteration Delay Ordinance; and (A “Yes” vote is for the $150,000 and requiring the reports. A “No” vote is against the $150,000 and reports). Rep. Paul DonatoYes Rep. Steven Ultrino Yes Sen. Jason LewisYes IMPACT OF COVID-19 ON CHILDREN’S BEHAVIORAL HEALTH (H 4002) House 147-12, Senate 39-1 overrode Baker’s veto of a provision requiring the Children’s Behavioral Health Advisory Council to conduct an analysis of the existing and anticipated impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on children’s behavioral health and the programs and support systems designed to help soften the impact.

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, November 12, 2021 Page 17 In his veto message, Gov. Baker said he vetoed this section because his administration’s existing Behavioral Health Roadmap, the product of a multi-stakeholder process, is the most comprehensive approach to identifying behavioral health needs and implementing services to provide the most eff ective care for all Massachusetts residents, including children. Supporters of overriding the veto said it is important to have a separate analysis of the impact of COVID-19 on children’s behavior in addition to the existing Behavioral Health Roadmap. (A “Yes” vote is for the separate analysis of the COVID-19 pandemic on children’s behavioral health. A “No” vote is against the separate analysis). Rep. Paul DonatoYes Rep. Steven Ultrino Yes Sen. Jason Lewis Yes $44.3 MILLION IN ADDITIONAL FUNDS FOR SENIORS, HUMAN SERVICES (H 4219) House 158-0, approved a consolidated amendment adding an estimated $44.3 million in spending on seniors, health, human services and education. “No group in the commonwealth has endured more loss and hardship over the past year and a half than our elder citizens and the people who cared for them,” said Rep. Tom Stanley (D-Waltham), the chair of the Elder Aff airs Committee. Stanley said this measure includes workforce investments that recognize human service workers as the essential elements they are in senior health delivery. “The bonus payments to COVID front line workers who kept our state going through the pandemic are appropriate and deserved,” said Stanley. “Moving forward, human service workers need to be paid fairly and allowed opportunities to develop skills and remain in that important industry. Expanding the human service workforce is critical.” (A “Yes” vote is for the amendment). Rep. Paul DonatoYes Rep. Steven Ultrino Yes HOW LONG WAS LAST WEEK'S SESSION? Beacon Hill Roll Call tracks the length of time that the House and Senate were in session each week. Many legislators say that legislative sessions are only one aspect of the Legislature's job and that a lot of important work is done outside of the House and Senate chambers. They note that their jobs also involve committee work, research, constituent work and other matters that are important to their districts. Critics say that the Legislature does not meet regularly or long enough to debate and vote in public view on the thousands of pieces of legislation that have been fi led. They note that the infrequency and brief length of sessions are misguided and lead to irresponsible late-night sessions and a mad rush to act on dozens of bills in the days immediately preceding the end of an annual session. During the week of November 1-5, the House met for a total of 19 minutes while the Senate met for a total of 58 minutes. Mon. Nov. 1 No House session Senate 11:14 a.m. to 11:16 a.m. Tues.

The goals Exilhomme said he wants for his team and the coaching staff are the things you want to hear from someone who is a new head coach. “I am bringing in a culture shift to change the mindsets that we have” as “winning will be a mindset here, hard work will be a mindset here, discipline will be a mindset here,” said Exilhomme. Our goal this season is to get better every week; it is to give our young players a lot of experience and knowledge to bring into the off season.” The new era of Malden High School Football looks bright with Coach Exilhomme and his staff at the helm. Everybody should be looking forward to Malden and their future. —The Blue and Gold is the school newspaper of Malden High School. ~ LEGAL NOTICE ~ COMMONWEALTH OF MASSACHUSETTS THE TRIAL COURT PROBATE AND FAMILY COURT Middlesex Probate and Family Court 10-U Commerce Way Woburn, MA 01801 (781) 865-4000 Docket No. MI21P4920EA Estate of: Richard J.

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, November 12, 2021 Page 19 November is National Family Caregivers Month, honoring the many caregivers who attend to their family’s needs N ovember is National Family Caregivers Month, which off ers an opportunity to honor the countless family caregivers who work tirelessly each day to attend to their family members’ needs. Mystic Valley Elder Services (MVES) is pleased to provide aff ordable and accessible services needed by these caregivers through the agency’s Family Caregiver Support Program. “Through this program, hundreds of caregivers are helped every year,” said MVES Caregiver Support Coordinator Kathy Learned. “When a new caregiver signs up for the program, a support coordinator sets up an appointment with them to go over an individualized action plan. We understand that every caregiver’s situation is distinct from others which is why the plan is uniquely tailored to each caregiver’s needs.” According to Learned, this plan comes at little or no cost to the caregiver. During the meeting, the coordinator will discuss the diff erent kinds of services provided by MVES, such as one-on-one assistance, peer support groups, family meetings and community resources. MVES’ services range from support groups where a caregiver can form friendships with other caregivers to workshops focused on raising awareness to the issues a caregiver faces throughout their day. Many caregivers who have taken part in the program have befriended other caregivers who are in similar situations. The support group engages in thoughtful conversations about the diffi culty of being a caregiver and the situations they can face. It also brings awareness to common diseases so that the caregiver doesn’t feel alone in their journey. “Some services may be needed at the home that the caregiver may not have which is why we have adaptive home equipment to support the family. From bed rails to a shower curtain, MVES strives to meet an individual’s needs on an everyday basis,” said Learned. “We also understand that a caregiver may feel like their needs are delayed when taking care of others which can lead to a burnout. Therefore, we have services tailored to giving some relief to the caregiver. This assistance, if the caregiver is eligible, provides supportive services such as adult day health, companions, and helping fi nd private duty assistance. These services are just a phone call away.” To learn more about the Family Caregiver Support Program, visit the MVES website at mves. org/caregiver-support or call 781-324-7705.

Any suggestions? Searching Son Dear Searching, Lost or forgotten life insurance policies are very common in the U.S. According to a study by Consumer Reports, one out of every 600 people is the benefi ciary of an unclaimed life insurance policy with an average benefi t of $2,000. It could be like fi nding out you have a secret savings account. While unfortunately, there isn’t a national database for tracking down these policies, there are a number of strategies and a few new resources that can help your search. Here are several to get you started. Search his records: Check your dad’s fi nancial records or areas where he kept his important papers for a policy, records of premium payments, or bills from an insurer. Also contact his employer or former employer benefi ts administrator, insurance agents, fi - nancial planner, accountant, attorney or other adviser and ask if they know about a life insurance policy. Also check safe-deposit boxes, monitor the mail for premium invoices or whole-life dividend notices, and review old income-tax returns, looking for interest income from, and interest expenses paid, to life insurance companies. Get help: The National Association of Insurance Commissioners off ers a policy locator service (see NAIC.org and click on “Consumer” then on “Life Insurance Policy Locator”) that lets you run a nationwide search for insurance policies or annuities in the names of people who have died. There are also six state insurance departments (Illinois, Louisiana, Michigan, New York, North Carolina and Oregon) that have free policy locator service programs that can help you search. To fi nd direct access to these state resources visit the American Council of Life Insurers website at ACLI.com – click on “Missing Policy Tips.” Contact the insurer: If you suspect that a particular insurer underwrote the policy, contact that carrier’s claim offi ce and ask. The more information you have, like your dad’s date of birth and death, Social Security number and address, the easier it will be to track down. Contact information for some big insurers include: Prudential 800-778-2255; MetLife Metlife.com/policyfi nder; AIG 800-888-2452; Nationwide 800-848-6331; John Hancock JohnHancock.com – click on “Lost or unclaimed policy form” at the bottom of the page under “Quick Links.” Search unclaimed property: If your dad died more than a few years ago, benefi ts may have already been turned over to the unclaimed property offi ce of the state where the policy was purchased. Go to MissingMoney.com, a website of the National Association of Unclaimed Property Administrators, to search records from 39 states, Puerto Rico and the District of Columbia. Or, to fi nd links to each state’s unclaimed-property division use Unclaimed.org. If your dad’s name or a potential benefactor’s name produces a hit, you’ll need to prove your claim. Required documentation, which can vary by state, is detailed in claim forms, and a death certifi cate might be necessary. Search fee-based services: There are several businesses that off er policy locator services for a fee. The MIB Group, for example, which is a data-sharing service for life and health insurance companies, off ers a policy locator service at MIB.com for $75. But it only tracks applications for individual policies made since 1996. You can also get assistance at Policy Inspector (PolicyInspector.com) for $99, and L-LIFE (LostLifeIns.com) for $108.50, who will do the searching for you. 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 “The Savvy Senior” book.

The Salemwood “Fall Fest” held last week at the school, in particular, drew many attendees. (See photo.) Principal Huynh also discussed the successful Salemwood Sharks school mascot and student rewards program, which was introduced as a key factor of the Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) that has been introduced at Salemwood. “It is just great to see the community that is being built at REAL ESTATE TRANSACTIONS BUYER1 XIE, CHRISTIE Y GONZAGA-SANTOS, JOSE DASILVA, ADINALVA G BUYER2 SELLER1 MACCARONE, JOANNE M CRUZ-LEMUS, REINA SELLER2 the Salemwood School, and it is built with joy,” Ward 5 School Committee Member Adam Weldai said. “It really is a welcoming place, and the community is moving forward there.” **** MPS assisting Board of Health with community-wide survey on health services The Malden Public Schools is assisting the Malden Board of Health with a Community Outreach Survey on health services that are off ered to the Malden community – and services residents may need, but are not receiving. The purpose of this survey is to help the City of Malden collect data about the residents and to fi nd out what services they may need. As the City is trying to improve, it is also important to know what the general population is lacking in terms of health insurance, mental health assistance, and transportation, among other services. The Survey is looking for ways the community members identify racially and what languages are spoken in the household and among the community. The Board of Health is fi nding ways to support the community. MPS is assisting the Board of Health by carrying the survey and making it accessible on its website at www.maldenps.org. All are encouraged to complete the survey and assist the Malden Board of Health in compiling data. **** Malden High Civics Club runs successful Voter Registration Drive A group of Malden High School students conducted a successful Voter Registration Drive in the weeks before the recent 2021 Municipal Election. Nearly 40 MHS students registered to vote for the fi rst time, a big success and more than the drives conducted in the pandemic years.
