Supt. Oteri, who will leave after what will be four years at the helm, relayed his decision to forgo a possible extension of his contract to the Malden Public Schools staff and administrators via an email on Tuesday afternoon. The Superintendent had also informed the members of the Malden School Committee and its chairman, Mayor Gary Christenson, of his intentions in a letter on Monday. “After careful thought and consideration I would like to announce that I will not seek an extension to my current contract and my last day in the Malden Public Schools will be June 30, 2021,” Supt Oteri stated. “I will pursue other professional and personal opportunities including spending more time with my family.” Superintendent has deep ties to Malden A Malden High graduate, Oteri is the first “homegrown” Superintendent of Schools in the Malden system since the late George E. Holland, Jr., who, coincidentally, was serving as Superintendent when Oteri attended John Oteri Supt. of Schools Malden High School in the early 1980s. He noted that status in thanking the school board and local community. “I want to thank the Malden School Committee and the Malden School Community for allowing me to lead the district where I grew up and received my education.” Oteri said in his letter. “Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think I would have this opportunity.” Oteri was selected as Superintendent by a 6-3 vote of the School Committee in April 2017 from a fi eld of fi ve fi nalists and assumed his post with a threeOTERI | SEE PAGE 12 Some Malden City Councillors want a “pause” on marijuana retail permits Vote narrowly passes resolution which is expected to generate more discussion By Steve Freker A fter all the City Councillors had their say, it became apparent the diagnosis for the nearly one-hour discussion Tuesday on the future of expanded retail marijuana sales may simply have been a case of “weed fatigue” – rather than “buyer’s remorse” – in the permit-granting process. In expressing varying degrees of how they were weary of talking about the issue, the Malden City Council at its regular meeting Tuesday night narrowly voted in favor of a resolution that will essentially lead them to talk about it even more.

She celebrated her milestone birthday at the Chelsea assisted living Cohen Florence Levine Estates with visits from her daughter, Janice Cohen, son-in-law, Larry Cohen, Gerry D’Ambrosio Attorney-at-Law Is Your Estate in Order? Do you have an update Will, Health Care Proxy or Power of Attorney? If Not, Please Call for a Free Consultation. 14 Proctor Avenue, Revere (781) 284-5657 granddaughter, Deborah, and great-granddaughter, Breanna. It was a special day for an exceptional woman. Growing up in Malden, Bernice and her sister, Ida Zaltzberg, were inseparable. Ida, who is four years younger than Bernice, was allowed to attend school with Bernice as a young child. She would sit in the back of the room while Bernice attended to her lessons. As they grew older, Bernice and Ida would clean the apartment together every Sunday morning, and then go to the movies together in the afternoon. To this day, Bernice and Ida are extremely close. In fact, Ida is also a resident at the assisted living. Met her husband, Ben Berman, on a blind date Bernice met her husband, Benjamin, on a blind date and the rest, as they say, is history. They married in 1943 and raised two daughters in a very loving, albeit busy, household. Even though Bernice moved out of the family home when she married, she and Ida remained very close, with Ida eating dinner at their home every Friday evening. Her daughter, Janice, recalls there was no such thing as takeout food in their house. “My mom was a wonderful cook and cooked every single day. You always knew the day of the week by what she had for dinner. Monday was dairy, such as mac & cheese; Tuesday was either steak or lamb chops; on Wednesdays was hamburger day, such as American chop suey or spaghetti and meatballs.” Added Janice, “We loved to tease her about keeping such a strict schedule, but secretly we all looked forward to the meal schedule.” In addition to working at General Electric, Ben Berman sold memberships for the American Library Association (ALA). Bernice helped him with member renewals, charming customers with her wit and persuasive manner. She also worked at a photography studio transferring black and white photos to color images. Over the years, Ben and Bernice enjoyed spending time with their two daughters and grandchildren. Once Ben retired, they went on many trips to Florida during the winter months. It was during those trips that they made many long-lasting friends. The couple were married for 53 years. Sadly, Ben passed away in 2003. Banking with a hometown touch.

COM She lived in her Malden home until 2013, when she was 93 Bernice remained in their Malden home until she was 93, keeping busy with family, friends and a myriad of activities. Today, she treasures spending time with her 15-year-old great-granddaughter. Politics is also a passion. To this day, she retains an intense interest in politics. As Janice noted, “Her knowledge and perspective about the political climate, especially these days, is extremely perBernice Berman ceptive.” In 2013 Bernice moved into Cohen Florence Levine Estates in Chelsea and quickly became an integral party of the assisted living family. “Everyone just loves her,” said Kristen Donnelly, Director of Admissions and Resident Relations. “Bernice is kind, funny and a very big part of the Cohen Florence Levine family.” An avid Bingo player, Bernice can often be found singing at the weekly concerts, reading the newspaper in the library and holding court at mealtimes. Education was the priority in the Berman household When asked about her greatest achievement, Bernice was quick to respond. “I am so proud that Ben and I were able to provide our daughters with opportunities that were not available to us,” said Bernice. “Their education was our top priority.” One of Bernice’s greatest pleasures revolves around feeding people. Janice remembers when she and husband Larry were dating. “He couldn’t wait to come over and eat Bernice’s stuffed cabbage,” said Janice. “Larry proclaimed it the best he had ever had.” Others apparently agree.

Levine “W hat you are about to read is a matter of human record. Explain it: we cannot. Disprove it: we cannot. We simply invite you to explore with us the amazing world of the Unknown ... to take that One Step ... Beyond”—from “Alcoa Presents: One Step Beyond” Let’s throw a party! I’m thinking big for next year – something to take away the Covid-19 blues. Hopefully, this dreaded plague will be in the rearview mirror by next summer, allowing us to breathe again. Let’s think positive for the purpose of this (part 1) rambling diatribe I am about to go on. Okay, where to start. Let’s imagine for a moment we can gather in groups again. It’s September of 2021. Summer is over. The air is crisp and clean. Everybody is back from vacation. You can only do so much apple picking. We need to throw a Malden block party! As in days of old no better place than Malden Square. Here’s what I’m proposing. We shut down Pleasant Street for a Saturday afternoon. Let’s say from noon until sundown. From Main to Commercial. No cars. Pedestrians only. We use the day to showcase Malden Square and our new City Hall digs: to show off how far the Square has come, to showcase our diversity, to celebrate another day of living (Rare Earth anybody?). Our outstanding restaurants will be the draw – our showcase – our ace in the hole. Malden gets a bump visibility-wise as we saturate the North Shore with Lawrence A.

Our downtown restaurants get the recognition they so richly deserve, and a wicked good payday, hopefully. And we’ll all get a chance to mingle once again amongst friends and neighbors in a festive, family friendly atmosphere. That’s the premise. Enough babbling; get to the details! Let’s think big. It should be a day to remember. Music! We’ll have music playing throughout the day. Who doesn’t love music?! Stages. We’ll have three of them. One at Main and Pleasant. One at Pleasant and Washington. One at Pleasant and Commercial. We’ll have all your favorites play. The Reminisants. Charlie Farren will be included of course. The band that stole the show at the 2019 Saint Rocco Feast, the Billy Joel tribute act Heart Attack Ack Ack Ack Ack Ack. North Shore Acapella. Richie Willis and any group of talented cats he wants to put together. Malden Square’s many acoustically perfect hallways back in the day was where Richie and his crews perfected their chops, by the way. Street Magic, you’re invited also of course. Beatlejuice! How about Sal Baglio and The Stompers?! The Bon Jovi cover band Living On A Bad Name? Funk bands, jazz bands, r&b, bagpipes, country...you get the idea, right. I’m also thinking roving musicians, hurdy-gurdy-type men and women. If we ask politely, maybe we can convince Davina Yannetty to set up her trusty Yamaha and blow us away with her fabulous professionalism. If we ask extra nicely, she may even break out her accordion. Davina is the best! How about a mariachi band? Wouldn’t that be fun!? I’m also thinking a New Orleans–style marching band to entertain during down time. If Davina sticks with the Yamaha, I know other accordion players (Polka Party anyone?) that would be more than happy to put a smile on your face while you sit comfortably in front of Cornucopia or Mystic Station or Faces or Hugh O’Neil’s. Music! Music! Music! Maybe at 6 or so we have a headliner-type act go on: somebody big to keep people around drinking, eating and making merry. Maybe we can convince Gary Cherone of Extreme, Houndstooth and Van Halen fame to end the evening in Gary Cherone–style. That would be cool. If Gary isn’t available, how cool would it be to have Norman Greenbaum back in Malden reprising his hit “Spirit in the Sky” for us?! Is there such thing as an Ames Brothers tribute band?! My attempt at humor. Can’t forget to invite the Wah Lum Kung Fu & Tai Chi Academy. Their “Lion Dance” stole the show at last year’s inauguration, and they are always a crowd pleaser. What about SUM Studios on Eastern Avenue? They set up a booth, showcase some of the talent that practices there and let Malden know what a fab place it is. Oh, my goodness! Almost forgot the Mu Eta Sigma Malden High School Step Team. Mentor and advisor Barbara Scibelli won’t be joining in on the dance steps, but she will be close by mentoring and advising. In case you never heard of them, they are a group of very talented young ladies who use their entire bodies to create the most joyful experience you’ll ever MALDEN: TODAY | SEE PAGE 8

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, November 13, 2020 Page 5 School communication technology moves to forefront during pandemic Malden School Committee gets detailed update from city tech chief By Steve Freker T he head of the city’s Information Technology (IT) department got right to the point Monday night. “In the midst of a pandemic, we’ve been turned on our heads – but we’ve responded,” Anthony Rodrigues said, as he began a detailed report to the School Committee on the status of the city’s IT system as it pertains to the Malden Public Schools. Rodrigues appeared at Monday night’s virtual School Committee meeting at the request of Superintendent of Schools John Oteri in concert with a desire by Ward 6 School Committee Member Joseph Gray for an update. With the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic and schools nationwide reverting to remote learning for the last few months of the school year this past spring, school communication technology has moved to the forefront. The trend has continued at the start of the school year and into the fall as approximately 55 percent of school districts nationwide have remained in remote learning mode, including Malden Public Schools. More reliant on technology and how it is used “We’ve become more reliant on technology and in the way we use that technology in our schools,” said Superintendent Oteri. “We introduced Chromebooks districtwide; we upgraded our Wi-Fi system and switched to an entirely new method of instruction without the benefit of any long-term planning.” Rodrigues explained how the dichotomy of the information technology network for the school system has dramatically shifted with the introduction of the remote learning model. Since the start of the remote learning model in the spring until the present, the Malden Public Schools have distributed personal laptop computer Chromebook devices to all of its just over 6,200 students. Previously, the school department’s information technology system was set up to deal with internal communications, with about 3,0004,000 devices communicating internally, as high school students had about 1,800 devices in use as well as in-school devices in some of the younger grades. With the advent of remote learning districtwide, the number of communication points Anthony Rodrigues Malden IT Director and the “direction” of the delivery and interaction shifted dramatically. With remote learning, all of the monitoring and interaction was shifted externally, outside of the school buildings, and this was a change that happened in a very short time period, Rodrigues said. IT Director Rodrigues: “It was uncharted territory” “It was uncharted territory, but we adapted,” Rodrigues said, explaining that upgrades and changes were made, including the increased use of “cloud” technology. Cloud use is when digital resources are stored in the virtual space by way of networks, often satellite networks. It allows people to share information and applications across the internet without overtaxing or being restricted by physical equipment or locations. The main use of the cloud technology is in external authentication, Rodrigues said, which enables the IT system to identify quicker and more efficiently the increased number of points of contact that are now in play externally. A recent upgrade “shifted geography in 72 hours, which was a big accomplishment,” Rodrigues said. “We now have capacity to handle 9,000 external connections seamlessly, which surpasses what we require on a daily basis.” Rodrigues said he works closely with all city departments, including the school department, and that the relationship has led to a successful adaptation to the newest form of learning for local students. “It’s been a daunting task to shift this operation so quickly,” Rodrigues said. “There have been some brief interruptions in services as we’ve gone along, but overall we have been successful. We also have enough IP space to grow, if needed.” “We have had some hiccups, Joseph Gray Malden School Committee but we’ve never crashed,” he added. “I would not ever have foreseen this degree of [internet] traffic that we now handle [with the schools], but we’ve adapted. Malden is faring far better than most [districts] due to the technology investment we have made.” “Help Desk” available for families with tech issues Supt. Oteri and Rodrigues both acknowledged the value of the outside agency Help Desk available to all Malden Public School families if they have issues using Chromebook devices; many of them are first-time users. The Help Desk can be accessed by calling 781-709-8080 and is available 8:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. If someone needs help, they can also go to the Malden Public Schools website and click on a link for a real-time online chat. Supt. Oteri also told the School Committee that Malden Public Schools has also provided nearly 400 Wi-Fi internet accessing “hotpots” at no charge to families who had no or weak internet service, which complements the individual devices. He acknowledged the work being done by administration, educators and staff to assist families in navigating the remote learning system. “In many ways the system we now use resembles a small college or community college with the online aspect, and our technology staff is stretched out. The complexity increases when the devices are not here in the buildings. We have adjusted, but we may need a plan in the future,” Supt. Oteri added. Gray, who himself works professionally in the IT field, thanked Rodrigues for his presentation: “It was an incredible presentation and gave us all a very good perspective on how the city and schools are handling technology issues.” www.eight10barandgrille.com We Have Reopened for Dine-In and Outside Seating every day beginning at 4 PM WE'RE OPEN! 8 Norwood Street, Everett (617) 387-9810 STAY SAFE!

They transported it to Rowley Animal Hospital for a checkup and then to Cape Ann Wildlife Rehabilitation facility for a couple of days. After the owl received a clean bill of health, it was released at Forest Dale Cemetery. Limited Time!

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, November 13, 2020 Page 7 Civic education class underway at Middlesex Jail & House of Correction A new initiative aimed at enhancing civic engagement is now underway at the Middlesex Jail & House of Correction: Individuals, all of whom are participants in the Middlesex Sheriff ’s Offi ce (MSO) emerging adults program, are taking part in a modified version of Project Citizen – an educational initiative that promotes competent and responsible participation in community aff airs and government. It helps participants learn how to monitor and infl uence public policy, particularly at the local and state levels. Like other civic education programs of its kind – though a national forerunner in terms of its correctional facility setting – Project Citizen aff ords participants the opportunity to build on other educational opportunities and resources off ered by MSO and to develop skills necessary for future success. Among the skills highlighted in this and other programs are eff ective oral and written communication skills, critical thinking skills, eff ective teamwork and leadership. The program is being facilitated by Melrose School Committee Chair Ed O’Connell, who was himself formerly incarcerated. “It’s an honor and privilege to be able to work with a group of young adults who are committed to not only improving their own lives, through educational opportunities aimed at personal development, but who are also committed to developing the skills necessary to make a positive impact in their communities,” O’Connell said. “Upon release from incarceration, these young men will be ready to engage in the civic life of their communities as active CIVIC | SEE PAGE 18 Project Citizen facilitator Melrose School Committee Chair Ed O’Connell (left) and Middlesex County Sheriff Peter Koutoujian spoke with program participants at the Middlesex Jail & House of Correction on Friday, November 6. (Courtesy Photo) Malden City Council votes to consider Mayor’s Diversity Officer funding request By Th e Advocate A s part of Mayor Gary Christenson’s UniteMalden 2020 initiative, several important goals were identified, one of which is the establishment of a Diversity, Equity and Inclusion position. This past week, Mayor Christenson submitted a financial paper to the City Council with a request to fund this newly created role. “This person will play a critical part in our organization by increasing the focus on diversity, equity and inclusion both inside city government and across the city,” said Mayor Christenson. The proposal is to include the position as part of the Mayor’s Office staff at the outset and then revisit whether there is more synergy with another department. The responsibilities will include, but are not limited to, participating in the recruiting and hiring of staff (including Boards and Commissions) to ensure that city government refl ects the diversity of the city, establishing and maintaining relationships with community organizations representing our diverse population and reporting regularly on metrics measuring our progress. The City Council voted unanimously to refer the paper to the Finance Committee, where the funding request will be vetted further. The plan is to start the advertising and search process as soon as the request is approved.

The holidays are a time to enjoy lots of wonderful food T he holidays might be a bit diff erent this year as we practice social distancing and do not attend large gatherings, but we can still enjoy lots of wonderful food. But how are you going to enjoy the holidays and not regret eating too much and gaining weight? Here are some tips from Mystic Valley Elder Services Registered Dietitian Candace Quigley on how you can still enjoy eating your favorite foods without regret: • Weeks before the holiday ican fl ag bunting everywhere, lights strung across Pleasant like it’s 1950’s Malden Square around Christmas time! Festive outdoor dining tents adorned with the fl ags of the world to emphasize the multitude of languages that are spoken in Malden and at MHS? Malden Center Fine Wines opens their glorious doors for some wine and cheese tasting? Highland Avenue’s Great Eastern Trading Co. sets up shop and off ers up some of their fab vintage wear... As Jimmy Durante quipped once or twice, ideas – “I got a million of ’em!” “This is the end, beautiful friend, this is the end, my only friend, the end” – Okay, I’m almost done. This is just an older man’s rambling. But if this were to happen it would have to be a team eff ort. Committees would need to be formed – volunteers required – many. Mayor Christensen and his awesomely capable staff would have to be onboard. The man personally responsible for the resurgence of outstanding food destinations in the Square, Kevin “Mr. Dealmaker” Duffy would need to sign on the bottom line. I know Ronny Cox is in. He would “go to the opening of an envelope” if invited. “That’s a joke, son,” said in my best Foghorn Leghorn voice. Give it some thought.

Unfortunately, holiday celebrations tend to be all about food. On average, Americans gain approximately one to two pounds around the holidays and it tends to stick and accumulate over the years. • No skipping breakfast! High-fiber foods will satisfy hunger. • Don’t arrive at your party famished because you will be more likely to eat too much. If dinner is going to be late, then have a healthy snack before you go out. • Most people will consume several handfuls of chips and dip, nuts, puff s and other appetizers. Choose only one favorite item and don’t graze all day until the meal starts. Don’t hang around the food table; focus on people, not the food. • Enjoy your favorite beverage and then switch to water or a noncaloric drink. Try to stay away from punches, eggnog and mixed drinks. Try fl avored sparkling water. • When dinner is served, there are usually a lot of choices. Choose those items that you only have on the holiday or that are special to you. You could start by putting vegetables on your plate before you put the entrée on it. Survey the entire table before you take any food. Decide which foods are worth eating and which you can ignore and stick to that decision. • Eat slowly and savor every bite; it takes 20 minutes before your stomach registers that you are full. • You don’t have to be a member of the clean plate club. You can leave some bites behind. • If you plan on having seconds, wait at least 20 minutes. Even though a lot of the foods are healthy, they all have calories and should be enjoyed in moderation. • Go ahead and have dessert! Just keep it to a reasonable portion and eat slowly. Again, pick an item that is your favorite that you only have during the holidays. • Say no to food pushers! Smile and say “thanks for making that delicious dessert, but I am full right now. Can I take some home for later?” • Get some physical activity – before, during or after the celebrations. Go for a walk before you leave to go to the party, or maybe you will have time after dinner. Still watch your football game but get up between quarters and during ads to mobilize yourself. Get right back on track with healthy eating and exercise the day after each holiday.

This will be the fi rst cancellation in the storied history of the parade, now going on 20-year-plus. **** That Malden Fire Chief Bill Sullivan and several of his apparatus and personnel were on hand for the moving ceremony honoring the late Malden Offi cer Isaiah McClain, who was killed in the line of duty on November 12, 1934, and was honored with a plaque which was unveiled yesterday across from Prospect Street on the Fellsway, on the grounds of the Fellsmere Pond park. **** That for those who were unaware, Malden Ward 7 Councillor Neal Anderson is a proud U.S. Navy Veteran of the Vietnam War and he served on the U.S. Franklin D.

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, November 13, 2020 Page 11 GBL votes unanimously to accept Lynn English and Lynn Classical as new members Schools requested to leave Northeastern Conference and join GBL in time for next fall season By Steve Freker Massachusetts.” At a meeting of NEC athletT he Greater Boston League (GBL) could go from “out of business” to expanding and thriving in the span of just 18 months. Yesterday the GBL board voted unanimously, 6-0, to accept Lynn English High School and Lynn Classical High School as members for the 2021-2022 season next fall, pending their release from the Northeastern Conference (NEC). “It was an easy decision and we are thrilled as a league that Lynn English and Lynn Classical wanted to become part of the Greater Boston League,” said Malden High School Principal and GBL President Chris Mastrangelo. “We will become a stronger, eight-team league with these two great additions,” Mastrangelo added. “Moving forward, we believe the GBL will be the premier, urban-based league in MARIJUANA | FROM PAGE 1 retail establishment at 323 Commercial St. The hearing included spirited debate for and against the petition, with continual questions and concerns raised over traffi c projections and concerns over the site, which will be located less than 150 feet from one of Malden’s busiest intersections, Commercial and Medford Streets. A few weeks later, the City Council held an over threehour, “mini”-marathon hearing before granting Cannabis East a special permit to site a retail marijuana establishment at 5 Linehurst Rd., which will sit adjacent to the Kappy’s Fine Wine & Spirits store on Bennett Highway (Route 1 North) on the Malden-Revere-Saugus line. That vote was unanimous, 11-0, to grant the petition to a group which also owns the Kappy’s store, grandsons of its founder, the late Ralph Kaplan. Resolution called for a “pause” in cannabis sales applications The resolution on the Council docket Tuesday night read: Resolve: That the City of Malden Cannabis Licensing Commission pause on soliciting additional applications for retail marijuana ic directors last Thursday, Lynn Classical and Lynn English informed the NEC they wish to leave the league in time to join the GBL for September 2021. The GBL was reformed at the end of the 2019-2020 school year when the NEC essentially voted out the four local schools, Everett, Malden, Medford and Somerville, after a brief, twoyear trial run as members of the NEC. Those four schools were quickly joined by Revere, an NEC school that had a long history in the GBL in the past, which opted to leave the NEC and got a swift bon voyage from that league. The GBL will soon increase to six members when Chelsea High joins the fold for the 2021-22 season next September. Representatives of Lynn English and Lynn Classical, according to reports, told the NEC athletic directors that there have licenses so that the city can solicit voter feedback in the next municipal election on limits to the number of establishments allowed in the City of Malden. The original sponsors were Councillor-at-Large Craig Spadafora, Ward 5 Councillor Barbara Murphy, Ward 8 Councillor Jadeane Sica (City Council President), Ward 2 Councillor Paul Condon, Councillor-at-Large Deborah DeMaria and Ward 7 Councillor Neal Anderson. Councillor DeMaria, in comments during the meeting, said she had a change in her opinion and had removed her name as a cosponsor of the paper. Ultimately, after a nearly hour-long discussion on the issue, the resolution passed by the narrowest of margins, 6-5, with Anderson, Condon, Ward 3 Councillor Amanda Linehan, Murphy, Spadafora and Sica voting in favor and Ward 1 Councillor Peg Crowe, Ward 6 Councillor David Camell, DeMaria, Ward 4 Councillor Ryan O’Malley and Councillor-at-Large Steve Winslow voting against the resolution. Technically, the resolution is in no manner a binding one, in that the City Council is not empowered to dictate policy by means of resolution to the city’s Cannabis Licensing and Enbeen discussions with the GBL reps for the past two months and they were told they’d be welcomed “with open arms.” If the two Lynn schools became fi rst-time “GBLers,” it would create an eight-team league, which would quickly be recognized as perhaps the premier urban-based league in the state. “We’ve been talking to the Greater Boston League for two months,” Lynn English Athletic Director Dick Newton said in a published report. “Many of the schools in that league are dealing with the same issues that we are dealing with here. I just feel like the Greater Boston League is a league where we belong now and in the future.” The GBL was one of the top leagues in Massachusetts, in all sports, for many years since its inception in 1959, before schools began leaving for other leagues. A number of schools, including charter members Arforcement Commission (CLEC), which was established and is governed by city ordinance. The City Council even went to Assistant City Solicitor Ken Rossetti to clarify this status on two occasions during the discussion. Several Councillors, including Sica, Winslow, O’Malley and Camell, specifi cally noted the same in their remarks. Intent of resolution to “take a timeout,” some backers said But the intent of the resolution, according to several of its sponsors, was more of a move to “take a timeout” from the extensive, lengthy hearings and subsequent debate on the issue, to assess where the permit-granting process with its relation to the number allowed, and desired by the City Council on behalf of the community, is right now, and where it may go in the future. City Council President Sica confi rmed this sentiment and the status of the resolution. “Whether this passes or not, this resolve means nothing to [the CLEC],” Sica said. “I support this resolve because I wanted to pause to review everything we have done and have some open, honest dialogue on how lington and Revere, as well as Peabody, Waltham and Cambridge, all left, leaving the GBL with just Everett, Malden, Medford and Somerville. Those four schools joined the NEC on a trial basis in 2017, but were voted out in 2019, with schools including Beverly and Marblehead leading the way. The GBL was reestablished in 2019 as of the winter season. Lynn Classical Athletic Director Bill Devin strongly supported the so-called GBL team remaining in the NEC and was one of the votes in favor. “For the short time they were in the league, we had tremendous games and competition with the GBL,” Devin said in a published report. “I looked at all the sports and I thought they belonged in the league. I’ve been thinking about this ever since they left the league. The GBL is more of where we should be now.” One reason is that offi cials and we should proceed moving forward.” “I am not anti-marijuana; I am pro-marijuana on this issue; that’s how I have always voted,” the City Council President added. She also noted there are as many as four additional applications for new marijuana sales establishments waiting “in the pipeline.” “We cannot just stop the process in its tracks. We do have applicants that are preparing bids and have spent a lot of money in research and other costs, tens of thousands in some cases.” “I would really look forward to discussing the whole issue and reviewing where we are at, in the Ordinance Committee,” she said. “We have to clarify where we stand. We – the Council – made these zones for retail marijuana, but now [in the fi rst hearing] we are saying the locations are no good. We really need to get this [process] right. We could have lawsuits [coming at us] before we know it.” State will allow for as many as fi ve cannabis sales outlets in Malden At present there are two special permits awarded. According to the legalization of marijuana coaches from Classical and English were reportedly not happy when other schools in the NEC changed course and decided to go forward with their fall sports seasons after the NEC principals had voted to move the entire season to “Fall 2” due to the Coronavirus. The two Lynn teams could not compete since that community was designated in the “Red,” high-risk category and not allowed to compete according to state and Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association protocols – all GBL schools stood as one and canceled their fall seasons. legislation passed at the state level in a referendum in 2016 (and passed by Malden voters by a slim margin, 51-46 percent), the number of legal marijuana sales establishments allowed in Malden is fi ve, according to the part of the law stating the number is tied to 20 percent of the liquor sales licenses in the city, which is approximately 25. The issue of the number of establishments (five) allowed by state statute in Malden was brought up by Condon in the fi rst public hearing, where he opposed that petition and where he suggested a potential ballot question in the upcoming 2021 municipal election on potentially limiting the number of cannabis permits. “It wouldn’t hurt to put it on the ballot [in 2021],” Condon said. “My particular ward didn’t vote for [five marijuana permits]. They thought it was just for decriminalizing marijuana so we are not destroying young lives for possessing it.” “If we don’t limit the number, we might see us having to expand the areas we allow [marijuana sales] to places like Maplewood Square or Highland AveMARIJUANA | SEE PAGE 14

Page 12 THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, November 13, 2020 Plymouth DA: Malden man tried to steal $8,000 from elderly woman in Hanover in “arrest scam” Suspect pleads not guilty to larceny, other charges; held on $5,000 cash bail A Malden man orchestrated a plot to steal $8,000 from an elderly woman by claiming her family member had been arrested, according to a Plymouth County District Attorney’s Office spokesperson. James Charles, 49, of Malden, was charged with larceny over $1,200 by false pretense and larceny over $250 from a person over 60. He also faces two counts each of money laundering and conspiracy. On April 16, the woman told Hanover police she received a call from a man claiming to be a family member in need of help. The man said he had been arrested in New Hampshire and turned the phone over to an “attorney,” who requested $8,000 for bail. The woman followed the caller’s instructions and turned the money over to a courier who arrived at her home, the DA’s office said. She requested a call back from the “attorney” but did not receive one. When she confirmed the whereabouts of her family member, she determined she had been defrauded of $8,000 and contacted police, the DA’s office said. Investigators believe Charles SOCIAL SECURITY BENEFITS FOR A DIVORCED SPOUSE The divorced spouse is elA divorced spouse must meet certain conditions in order to collect social security benefits based upon his or her ex-spouse’s work history. The divorced spouse must have been married for at least 10 years. The divorced spouse must not have remarried. If remarried, the divorced spouse will still be able to collect benefits based upon the ex-spouse’s work history so long as the second marriage ended by death, divorce or annulment. If the divorced spouse did remarry, he or she could collect under either exspouse’s work history so long as the second marriage also lasted at least 10 years, or if the second spouse died, that marriage lasted at least 9 months. Furthermore, a divorced spouse must be at least 62 years of age or older to collect. If the ex-spouse is deceased and the divorced spouse is at least 50 years of age, the divorced spouse can collect social security benefits if deemed disabled by the Social Security Administration. A divorced spouse can begin collecting benefits so long as the ex-spouse is at least 62 years of age and he or she has been divorced for at least two years. igible to receive one half of the ex-spouse’s social security benefits. If, however, the ex-spouse dies, then the divorced spouse can then collect 100% of the ex-spouse’s full retirement benefit. This benefit would not include any delayed retirement credits the ex-spouse may receive. The divorced spouse would only be able to receive a benefit based upon the value of the ex-spouse’s benefit at his or her full retirement age. Full retirement age for those born between 1943 and 1954 is 66 years old. From 1955 to 1960, full retirement age gradually increases. For those born in 1960 or later, full retirement age is 67. A person born prior to January 2, 1954 has the option of first collecting based upon the ex-spouse’s work history while allowing his or her own benefits to grow until reaching age 70, and then switching over to his or her own work history. The law was recently changed so that a divorced spouse born after January 1, 1954 applying for social security benefits will automatically receive the highest benefit for which he or she is entitled to, based upon either his or her own work history, or the work history of the ex-spouse. He or she no longer has the option of collecting benefits based upon the exspouse’s work history and then switching over to his or her own work history at age 70.

As transportation workers, the 6,000 members of Local 589 are among those essential workers. Now, there is a danger of MBTA officials exploiting the crisis by forcing austerity measures upon riders and workers alike. It is the same old song of MBTA officials pushing austerity, rather than daring to ask the wealthy to pay their fair share, despite the strong public support for new revenues that will ensure high quality, affordable, safe public transportation. The MBTA Fiscal and Management Control Board would be failing riders and the public yet again if they make these cuts before the Biden administration has an opportunity to take important steps on infrastructure funding. It is completely tone-deaf and against the interest of riders and our communities for the MBTA board to be pushing service reductions, instead of working to hold large corporations and the super-wealthy responsible to finally pay their fair share and to protect the common good. Now is the time to invest in our future and our economy and in the public transportation services that our communities need, not to decimate public transit with misguided austerity measures. The members of Local 589 are calling for a moratorium on further austerity measures at the MBTA and a moratorium on any proposed cuts that will hurt the essential workers across the Commonwealth who rely on public transportation.

Dear Savvy Senior, Will my Medicare benefi ts be aff ected if Obamacare is overturned by the Supreme Court? Concerned Benefi ciary Dear Concerned, Unfortunately, yes. If the Aff ordable Care Act (ACA) – also known as Obamacare – gets repealed by the Supreme Court next year, it will weaken Medicare and increase costs for benefi ciaries. Here’s what you should know. Currently, about 60 million people are covered under Medicare, the federal health insurance program for people 65 and older and people of all ages with disabilities. Even though the main aim of the ACA was to overhaul the health insurance markets, most people don’t realize that the law also touches virtually every part of Medicare. Without the ACA, Medicare benefi ciaries will have to pay more for preventive care services, which are now free; they’ll have to pay more toward their prescription drugs; their premiums and deductibles will rise faster; and Medicare will face insolvency much sooner because of lost funding and cost cutting measures. With the help of Kiplinger’s Retirement Report, here is a more detailed breakdown of what happens to Medicare if the court invalidates the law. Preventive care services will no longer be free: Thanks to the ACA, there’s no copayment or deductible for potentially life-saving screenings for cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular disease and other illnesses. Flu shots and annual wellness visits are also free. Before the ACA, benefi ciaries had to pay 20 percent of the cost for most preventive care services, after their deductible was met. The doughnut hole will return: Since 2011 the ACA has been steadily closing the prescription drug coverage gap, also known as the doughnut hole, in Medicare Part D by requiring drug manufacturers and insurers to pick up more of the cost. The hole was fi nally closed this year with seniors paying 25 percent of the cost for both generic and brand-name medications and manufacturers picking up 70 percent of the tab, while insurers kick in the remaining fi ve percent. Before the ACA, seniors paid 100 percent of Part D prescription drug expenses while in the doughnut hole. Medicare premiums and deductibles will rise faster: The ACA also curbed Medicare payments to providers to help keep Medicare Part A deductibles and copayments in check. Similarly, Part B premiums and deductibles are much lower than projected before the ACA became law. From 2011 to 2020, Part B premiums increased 23 percent. From 2000 to 2009 – the nine years before the law’s passage – Part B premiums rose almost fi ve times faster, increasing 112 percent over that period. Medicare Advantage plans will be more expensive: The ACA requires Medicare Advantage plans to spend 85 percent of premium dollars on health care, not profi ts or overhead. The plans also can’t charge more than traditional Medicare for chemotherapy, renal dialysis, skilled nursing care and other specialized services. Those restrictions dramatically lowered costs for Medicare Advantage plan enrollees. Since the ACA became law in 2010, the average Medicare Advantage premium has decreased by 43 percent while enrollment has increased 117 percent. Insolvency accelerates: The ACA extended the solvency of the program’s trust fund by eight years to 2026, mostly by fi nding new sources of revenue and slowing the growth of payments to all providers. The Congressional Budget Offi ce estimates that reversing those changes would cost the program $700 billion over 10 years, which would make Medicare almost immediate insolvent.

If fi ve of these [marijuana] shops went into the city of Malden how would they be spread out?” Spadafora: Malden voters did not realize all parts of marijuana legalization question Councillor Spadafora, the lead sponsor of the resolution, agreed with some of Condon’s points. “A lot of voters didn’t realize there was a number [of marijuana sales permits] tied to liquor licenses. A lot of cities and towns want that control – to have a say in that – but we can’t say ‘no’ to [the number of] cannabis [permits], unlike liquor licenses, where we have a commission that can. We have to discuss it further in Ordinance [Committee].” Councillor O’Malley spoke against the resolution. “The correct process would be to send any of this discussion to Ordinance. This is a contradiction to our own municipal ordinances and state law,” O’Malley said. “Businesses have spent money in researching and design planning. The businesses that may be in the pipeline for consideration by our CLEC, they’d have a case for damages.” Councillor Winslow concurred. “This is premature and unfair. We have people who have not applied yet, but have invested in planning and design in preparation to apply.” “We are the ones who made the ordinance, after long discussions and much community input. But remember, we’ve approved two permits, but we haven’t cut a ribbon yet. Who knows what can happen from now until then with these businesses we have approved?” Winslow said. “At least give some of these people preparing applications a ‘last call.’ If it turns out enough people want a petition to put it on the ballot, then so be it.” DeMaria: Pause would be disservice to those preparing applications Councillor-at-Large DeMaria agreed. “At fi rst blush I thought maybe we should pump the brakes on [special permits], but I think it would be a disservice to people preparing applications,” she said, noting she took her name off the paper as a cosponsor. “I think this resolve just isn’t what we need right now.” Ward 6 Councillor Camell was also against the paper. “This does not direct the CLEC to move forward. This does BERMAN | FROM PAGE 2 Bernice gave her coveted cabbage recipe to Michael Millard, the chef at the assisted living, soon after she moved in seven years ago. Not surprisingly, it remains one of the most popular items on the menu today. not seem like the right way to go about this,” Camell said. “It’s like an end run around the ordinance.” Other councillors were in favor of the paper, like Ward 3’s Linehan, who said, “I’ve heard some concerns from residents that we may have a saturation of these facilities if we [increase the number].” “I believe we need more discussion on this issue,” said Ward 2’s Anderson. “The resolve is a sense of the City Council and will lead to a pause so we get some feedback.” Said Ward 5’s Murphy, “The issue in Malden is recreational use. [Our voters] did not understand we could have recreational marijuana establishments tied to the number of liquor licenses. A little bit of a pause is not a bad thing and would be in the best interests of everyone in the city of Malden.” After the lengthy discussion, the City Council moved on to further items on the agenda, but it was made clear the debate on the present and future status of retail marijuana special permits is far from over.

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, November 13, 2020 Page 15 Beacon Hill Roll Call By Bob Katzen LISTEN TO BOB’S SHOW: Beacon Hill Roll Call’s publisher, Bob Katzen, hosts “The Bob Katzen Baby Boomer and Gen X Fun and Nostalgia Show” every Sunday night from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Jump into Bob’s DeLorean time machine and tune in for a trip back to the simpler and happier days of the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s. Bob’s special guest on the Sunday, November 15 show will be TV icon Jerry Mathers who played Beaver Cleaver on the long-running TV sitcom “Leave it to Beaver.” Listeners are welcome to call in and talk with Jerry who entered the hearts and homes of American in 1957 when the series debuted. The show ran for six seasons and in 2017 celebrated its 60th anniversary. Jerry has also appeared on dozens of TV shows and his theater credits include the Broadway production of “Hairspray,” “Who’s On First” and “So Long Stanley" which played to standing room only houses across the country for 18 months. In the mid-1990s Jerry was diagnosed with type 2 Diabetes. He took preventative action, lost 55 pounds and is currently one of the leading lecturers on living with and dealing with diabetes. He has partnered with diverse organizations to bring awareness of this horrendous epidemic that nation is currently facing among both children and adults. In 2009 and 2010, Jerry was the national spokesperson for PhRMA and their Partnership for Prescription Assistance program. This organization helps uninsured and financially struggling patients obtain prescription medicines for free or nearly free.

FISCAL 2020 SUPPLEMENTAL BUDGET (H 5102) House 157-0, Senate on a voice vote without a roll call approved and sent to Gov. Charlie Baker, a fiscal 2020 supplemental budget to close out the books on fiscal year 2020. A key provision to help fund the budget diverts the scheduled automatic transfer of capital gains tax revenue estimated at $400 million to the state Rainy Day Fund. Provisions include $422 million for MassHealth, the state's Medicaid program that provides healthcare for low-income and disabled persons; $62.6 million for the Group Insurance Commission; $11.9 million for the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education; $1.9 million for the promotion of the restaurant industry; $6.6 million for the State Police; $727,170 to reimburse municipalities for early voting costs from the March 3 presidential primary; $711,947 for a grant program focused on advanced skill training for the home care aide workforce that serves consumers of the elder home care program; and creation of an Opioid Recovery and Remediation Trust Fund to mitigate the impacts of the state’s opioid epidemic including expanding access to opioid use disorder prevention, intervention, treatment and recovery options. Other provisions include giving flexibility to UMass by permitting it to secure a short-term line of credit for operating costs capped at eight percent of the university’s total approved operating budget; a limited retroactive extension to the statute of limitations for a cause of action concerning prescription opioids brought against Purdue Pharma and its owners; and a change to the state's unemployment law to ensure that people receiving Pandemic Unemployment Assistance will receive an additional seven weeks of benefits, fully covered by the federal government. Overall, this budget is a fiscally responsible and targeted piece of legislation that will help close the books on fiscal year 2020," explained Senate Ways and Means Chair Mike Rodrigues (D-Westport). Of the 39 amendments proposed by representatives, 36 were withdrawn including a controversial one by Rep. Mike Connolly (D-Cambridge) that would have extended a moratorium on evictions and foreclosures for failure to pay until at least January 1, 2021. The amendment would also give the governor the authority to postpone the expiration in increments of up to 90 days. A moratorium approved by the Legislature and signed by the governor on April 20 expired on October 17 and the Legislature has not extended it. Supporters say that without the extension, there will be tens of thousands of tenants evicted. (A “Yes” vote is for the budget.) Rep. Paul DonatoYes Rep.

Beacon Hill Roll Call tracks the length of time that the House and Senate were in session each week. Many legislators say that legislative sessions are only one aspect of the Legislature's job and that a lot of important work is done outside of the House and Senate chambers. They note that their jobs also involve committee work, research, constituent work and other matters that are important to their districts. Critics say that the Legislature does not meet regularly or long enough to debate and vote in public view on the thousands of pieces of legislation that have been filed. They note that the infrequency and brief length of sessions are misguided and lead to irresponsible late-night sessions and a mad rush to act on dozens of bills in the days immediately preceding the end of an annual session. During the week of November 2-6, the House met for a total of eight hours and 18 minutes while the Senate met for a total of six hours and 21 minutes. Mon.
