For instance, how many Malden residents are aware that there are 320 smaller streets, “terraces” or courts in this city that are legally designated as “private ways”? Malden City Council President Jadeane Sica has been living on Cleveland Street in the Linden neighborhood of Ward 8 for many years. Unbeknownst to Councillor Sica when she fi rst began residence there, and probably not known to residents now residing there, Cleveland Street, an average-sized street in Linden, is a private way. Here are some more numbers. Next door in Revere, where that city rolled out its residents-only, citywide overnight parking program on September 14, they have not been able to adequately begin enforcing the regulations yet, partly due to some 7,500 emails the Parking Department has been inundated with since its inception. Not to mention the work still needed to be done in evaluating just how many residential parking stickers are to be allotted to the 175 residential buildings of eight or more units in Revere. Oh, and the private way issue is alive and well in that community, too. Just not to the tune of over 300 such thoroughfares as exist in Malden. Facts and fi gures These were just some of the facts and figures brought to the fore by Malden Parking Director Ron Hogan in Monday’s virtual meeting, the first held by the committee since February, in a year where the calendar has been upended by COVID-19 pandemic. The key is that Malden streets are often full of vehicles overnight which include both nonresident-owned vehicles and resident-owned vehicles that are not registered in the city of Malden. The two-fold problem the City Council and Parking Department seek to address is a shortage of parking space for residents and a shortfall of appropriate vehicle excise tax revenue if all the vehicles were properly registered in Malden, where they legally should be registered. Hogan related how he has been observing and exchangPARKING | SEE PAGE 12

Page 2 THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, November 20, 2020 Mayor proposes $6M road improvement project for city By Steve Freker A n extensive, $6 million street and roadwork improvement project has been proposed by Malden Mayor Gary Christenson. The proposal is intended to focus on neighborhood streets across the city and expand on the work that has already been occurring. The Malden City Council at its November 10 meeting referred the proposal to its Finance ComGerry D’Ambrosio Attorney-at-Law Is Your Estate in Order?

The Mayor has proposed the project be funded with a $3 million bond issue coupled with a $3 million expenditure from the city’s savings account, which is known as the municipal “free cash” fund. “As our residents know all too well, over the past eight years we have been laser focused on replacing aged and crumbling water mains and service,” Mayor Christenson said. “We have made tremendous progress, and as part of these projects, we have also repaved streets and fi xed sidewalks.” “We also recognize that we have a lot of neighborhood streets that need less extensive work focused on paving. This initiative addresses some of these streets while continuing with our water main work,” he added. The Mayor said his approach to funding the project represented a balance between the future and present with half of the project to be paid for in borrowing and the other half paid with existing funds. “Bonding is an effective and perfectly acceptable way to pay for these types of projects,” said Mayor Christenson. “I’m mindful, however, of the burden that places on our future. We have been working hard over the past several years to position ourselves to pay for some of this work out of savings, and some from bonding.” The Mayor said he would Gary Christenson Mayor consider using this funding approach in the future. “I am hopeful we can use this model on other projects as well. We have brought our bond rating up to the highest it has been in city history. Responsible approaches like this is what will keep it there,” Mayor Christenson said.

A designation considers the size of the community, positive COVID-19 cases per 100,000 residents and the percentage of tests conducted in the community that result positive. Although Malden remains among the communities in the yellow – or moderate risk – category, the average daily rate of cases has increased to 22.7. Despite this uptick, because Malden is not considered a red – high-risk – community it does not qualify to be a testing site as part of the Commonwealth’s “Stop the Spread” campaign. Stop the Spread is a targeted testing program that is based entirely on data and not something that a municipality can simply request. The communities that have these testing sites have been those identifi ed as being consistently at high risk, such as Everett, Chelsea and Revere. The City of Malden is looking into what other avenues and resources exist as far as a Malden test site.

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, November 20, 2020 Page 3 Malden Mayor's 'Mask Man' garners some national attention Millions of eyes on Malden a Mask Man gains a following on Reddit By Steve Freker W hat began as a normal day in the life of Mayor Gary Christenson ended with millions of eyes on Malden and on the Mayor’s good deeds. This year Mayor Gary Christenson cleverly selected his Halloween costume as a spirited and festive opportunity to spread awareness about the importance of wearing a mask during the COVID Pandemic. Thus “Mask Man” was born. From a "mild-mannered Mayor to mask-wielding superhero," Christenson quickly found that publicly handing out masks to the residents of Malden was far more eff ective when dressed as a caped crusader and so operation #MaskUpMalden began. Now comes the Reddit part. During a recent mask giveaway event in Maplewood Square, Mask Man decided to step up his mask-slinging efforts by jumping on an MBTA bus passing through the Square as it was pulled over to exchange passengers. The bus driver happily granted the Mayor a few short minutes to hand out masks to everyone on the bus.Little did he know that a quick smartphone picture would end up giving him world-wide fame yet again. In April of last year, another photographer snapped a photo of the Mayor picking up trash in his suit and tie. This photo was uploaded to the immensely popular website, Reddit.

Page 4 THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, November 20, 2020 State delegation says Malden residents would be severely impacted by MBTA service cuts Letter to “T” General Manager details Malden’s reliance on transit service, investment in transit-oriented infrastructure By Steve Freker M alden’s residents rely on public transit to a degree where any service reductions or other cuts would have a severe, negative impact on their daily lives. That is the message delivered Tuesday by Malden’s State House legislative delegation in a joint letter to Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) General Manager Steve Poftak. “Many [Malden] families are already struggling with loss of income and other hardships since the start of the pandemic, and reductions in bus service will only add to the challenges,” the legislators stated in the letter. The joint letter was crafted by State Senator Jason Lewis (D-5th Middlesex) and State Representatives Paul Donato (D-Malden, Medford, 35th Middlesex), Steve Ultrino (D-Malden, 33rd Middlesex) and Kate Lipper-Garabedian (D-Malden, Melrose, 32nd Middlesex). MBTA unveiled proposed service cuts on Nov. 9 The letter was sent in response to a series of proposed changes to its transit service that MBTA officials released on November 9. In an open letter to “T” riders, Poftak outlined reasons Lawrence A. Simeone Jr. Attorney-at-Law ~ Since 1989 ~ * Corporate Litigation * Criminal/Civil * MCAD * Zoning/Land Court * Wetlands Litigation * Workmen’s Compensation * Landlord/Tenant Litigation * Real Estate Law * Construction Litigation * Tax Lein * Personal Injury * Bankruptcy * Wrongful Death * Zoning/Permitting Litigation 300 Broadway, Suite 1, Revere * 781-286-1560 lsimeonejr@simeonelaw.net for proposed service cuts and changes, which he said intend to match service to new ridership patterns resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. The proposed changes are part of the T’s “Forging Ahead” plan. In the letter, GM Poftak detailed massive ridership level reductions across the board, due to the pandemic. “When the pandemic hit, ridership and fare revenue plummeted across our system as it did across America. Ridership dropped by over 80 percent in March and has been slow to recover,” Poftak stated in his letter, noting that despite ridership dropping to just 26 percent in September 2020 from the September 2019 figure, the MBTA was “still running at high levels of service across all modes.” In two specific examples, Poftak, in his letter, stated that commuter rail ridership has dropped to just 13 percent of pre-pandemic levels, with bus ridership falling to 41 percent of pre-pandemic numbers. The proposed changes would save $3 million in 2020 MBTA expenditures and an estimated $32 million in 2021. Many voice opposition to proposed cuts State legislators, members Jason Lewis State Senator Paul Donato State Representative The MBTA Commuter Rail service would be eliminated on weekends as part of package of proposed service cuts “T” officials wish to implement. (Courtesy Photo) of the public and representatives from various public service agencies across the state have responded in unison against the proposed cuts, despite the lowered ridership numbers. “Reliable, accessible and affordable public [transport] is critical to our residents, businesses and local economic development,” the delegation stated in the letter. “We are particularly concerned about the disproportionate impact that these cuts will have on lower income residents and small businesses.” “Despite the pandemic, many of our constituents still rely on public transportation to get to their jobs, school medical appointments and elsewhere,” the letter stated. “Furthermore, we expect the economy to continue rebounding next year – particularly once a vaccine becomes available – and public transit ridership will start growing again just as these harmful cuts are implemented.” As the plan stands now, there would be no fare rate changes with the proposals, and the service changes and cuts would be staggered, date-wise, with the following timetable proposed: —Commuter Rail service changes may begin in January —Ferry service changes may begin in March —Subway service changes may begin in the spring —Bus service may change in the summer MBTA officials said this timeline allows for further service adjustments if ridership changes in the near future, or if revenue becomes available. Not all of the service cuts are intended to be permanent, officials stated. All MBTA service would stop at midnight; no more commuter rail service on weekends The main facets of the Forging Ahead plan include stopping all service (subway and bus) after midnight (versus 1:00 a.m. at present), but no changes to start of service (now at 5:00 a.m.). —Reducing frequency by 20 percent across Blue, Green, Orange and Red Lines, though may vary line by line and by time of day based on ridership patterns — Ending all commuter rail service on weekends The MBTA’s proposed moves MBTA | SEE PAGE 13

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, November 20, 2020 Page 5 INSIDE INFORMATION: In and Around the Malden Community Plans under way to create a COVID-19 Memorial in Malden By Steve Freker T he city of Malden will be the first in the greater Boston area to create a permanent COVID-19 Memorial to honor and remember those lost and those who have suffered during this pandemic. Everyone in the world has been forced to deal with varying degrees of adversity and loss during the pandemic, including the loss of loved ones. Over 10,000 COVID-19-related deaths have been recorded in Massachusetts, with over 100 here in Malden. Recently the Malden City Council voted unanimously to create a permanent COVID-19 Memorial in this city and referred the resolution to a joint meeting of the Citizen Engagement and Public Property Committees for further review. The first joint meeting was held virtually via Zoom webinar Wednesday night, and considerable progress was made as the discussion produced at least two possible, viable sites for the planned memorial: alongside the Malden River or next to the pond in the central region of Malden’s Forest Dale Cemetery. Councillor-at-Large Debbie DeMaria Councillor-at-Large Ryan O'Malley Ward 4 Councillor Debbie DeMaria, chairperson of the Citizen Engagement Committee, and Ward Four Councillor Ryan O’Malley, chairperson of the Public Property Committee, led the discussion which resulted in two potential sites being floated Wednesday night. DeMaria, O'Malley and Ward Three Councillor Amanda Linehan all agreed that public feedback and input would be vital in crafting a suitable plan for both design and final siting of the Malden COVID-19 Memorial. Councillor Linehan said she would work with Councillor DeMaria in formulating and promoting an online survey ~ Editorial ~ COVID-19 Memorial will provide a comforting place for those seeking solace City Council makes this community first in area to sponsor such a memorial T he members of the Malden City Council have taken a novel and timely approach to try and provide some solace for those who are grieving loss and dealing with other trauma during this COVID-19 pandemic. The pandemic has struck virtually everyone in the world to the core and changed the way we live, think and face issues, both small and large. In addition to forcing people to essentially shuffle the deck when it comes to finances, where they live and how they interact with others, there is a much starker side of the pandemic which has not left this community untouched. Malden, like nearly every community across the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, is mourning the loss of loved ones who have succumbed to COVID-19 since the pandemic was declared in March. Statewide, as of the latest figures, there have been 10,177 COVID-19 deaths. Malden has recorded over 100 COVID-19 deaths. Recently, the Malden City Council voted unanimously to create a COVID-19 Memorial in Malden to provide a place for residents to recall those they have lost and also a place to reflect on the events which have transpired related to this deadly pandemic. In doing so, Malden has become the first community in the Greater Boston area to begin planning for such a memorial. Earlier this week, at a joint meeting of Chairperson/Councillor-at-Large Debbie DeMaria’s Citizens Engagement Committee and Chairperson/Ward Four Councillor Ryan O’Malley’s Public Property Committee, great progress was made when two potential site ideas were discussed in committee. A public survey was commissioned by Councillor DeMaria as a means to garner some public feedback on the design and siting of the memorial, with Ward Three Councillor Amanda Linehan taking the lead to draft such a survey. Councillors DeMaria, O’Malley, Linehan and the other City Council members should be commended for their foresight, compassion and efforts to ease some of the pain wrought on the Malden community by this devastating pandemic. whereby Malden residents could weigh in with their thoughts and opinions on the future COVID-19 Memorial. A draft of that survey is planned to be ready at the next joint committee meeting, which is planned for December.

Pelosi was nominated for Speaker by voice vote on Wednesday but will have to win by a floor vote in January to return for another term. Rep. Clark has represented Malden, Revere and Winthrop, as well 23 other greater Boston and MetroWest communities in the 5th Middlesex District, nationally since 2013. She formerly represented Malden as a State Senator before that for a term and part of Malden as state representative for three terms in the 2000s. “I am honored and humbled to join the leadership team in this new role as assistant speaker,” Clark said Wednesday at a press conference in Washington, D.C., following the election. She went on to talk about change and the need to help Americans who are suffering in this pandemic and other divides across our nation. “We are going to see and help the American people with the pain they’re suffering, through the loss of life and livelihood from this pandemic, and the racial and economic injustices that they are facing,” Rep. Clark said. “We are the guardians of peoples’ hopes and aspirations, and we are going to be the unified engine for change.” U.S. Rep. Clark defeated Rhode Island Rep. David Cicilline, the outgoing chair of the Democratic Policy and Communications Committee, in a 13592 vote. Rep. Cicilline congratulated Clark, noting in a statement released by rollcall.com that the race was a “hard fought campaign” but that Democrats would come together to deliver on their policy promises. “I look forward to being a part of those efforts and doing whatever I can to make real progress for the people we serve,” he said. In the present term, Rep. Clark had been serving as the Democratic Caucus vice chair, which is the #6-ranked spot in Congressional leadership. Rep. Clark was first elected to Congress in 2013 in a special election to fill the unexpired term of now U.S. Sen. Ed Markey (D-Mass.), who left Congress after 40 years to run for the U.S. Senate. The Senate seat opened in 2013 when then Sen. John Kerry was appointed U.S. Secretary of State by President Obama. The Assistant Speaker spot was open because the current occupant, New Mexico Rep. Ben Ray Luján, is moving to the Senate. According to national political watchers, “Clark is now in prime position to ascend to a higher role – potentially even one day becoming the second female speaker – after Pelosi and her top lieutenants retire.” Rep. Clark, at age 57, is decades younger than the Democratic leadership team. On Wednesday, the caucus also reelected the #2 spot, Majority Leader Steny H. Hoyer, 81, and #3 spot, Majority Whip James E. Clyburn, 80, by acclamation. House Democratic Caucus Chairman Hakeem Jeffries, 50, who was reelected to the #5 position Wednesday by acclamation, and was unopposed, is also considered a potential Pelosi successor and could be the first Black Speaker. Wednesday’s leadership election was held virtually, with Democrats gathered over a video call. The vote for Assistant Speaker was conducted using secret ballot.

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, November 20, 2020 Page 7 Life changes drastically when one becomes a family caregiver N ational Family Caregivers Month – held each November – provides the ideal opportunity to celebrate family caregivers while shining a spotlight on the myriad challenges they face and the various resources available to support them. This year’s theme, “Caregiving Around the Clock,” is evidence that for many family caregivers providing care to a loved one is a 24/7 responsibility. “Family caregivers are the backbone of care that is needed for elders at home, especially those with dementia,” said Caregiver Support Coordinator Kathy Learned of Mystic Valley Massachusetts General Hospital, Dr. Brad Dickerson. “Dr. Dickerson has been wonderful to our family so when he recommended MVES, we knew we would be in excellent hands,” said Pam. Pam and Learned point out that life changes drastically when one becomes a family caregiver. Even getting a haircut requires coordination with a relative or private duty aide who can step in to help. Caregivers’ own needs often get put on the backburner when they are caring physically and emotionally for a loved one. “From the moment we met Kathy Learned when she came to our home two years ago to takes a comprehensive and individualized approach when it comes to evaluating consumers’ needs. For the Corollas, this meant, in addition to support groups and the day program, help finding private duty assistance and adaptive home equipment, such as bed rails and a shower chair. “No two caregiver situations are exactly the same,” says Learned. “We address each situation differently to ensure families’ unique needs are met.” “My advice to other family caregivers is to reach out to MVES or your local elder services agency sooner rather than later. Truly amazing help is there and it will be better for both you and your partner to access this support,” Pam said. MVES off ers a wide range of accessible and aff ordable caregiver services through its Family Caregiver Support Program, such as one-on-one assistance, family meetings, community resources and caregiver and peer support groups. To learn more, visit the website mves.org or call 781-324-7705. Pam and Paul Corolla of Medford celebrated Pam’s birthday with their fi ve granddaughters. (Photo Courtesy of Mystic Valley Elder Services) Elder Services (MVES). “They are integral to keeping their loved ones living safely in the community but do not need to go it alone. We understand the stress, exhaustion and being overwhelmed that family caregivers often feel, and we are just a phone call away.” Pam Corolla of Medford became a family caregiver for her husband of 53 years, Paul, when he was diagnosed with frontotemporal lobe dementia in 2017. The proud parents of two adult children and grandparents to fi ve granddaughters, Pam and Paul have been residents of Medford for more than 50 years and benefi t from having their daughter and her family living next door. Pam said she was directed to MVES by Paul’s neurologist at evaluate our needs, we felt supported and understood,” said Pam. “She is so knowledgeable and immediately connected us with valuable resources and services, especially an adult day health program right in our own community – Community Family.” Dr. Dickerson echoed Learned’s recommendation of the day program, where Paul now goes three days a week. Pam also began taking part in regular caregiver support groups facilitated by MVES, which now meet virtually due to the pandemic. According to Pam, the support groups have been invaluable and have helped her form friendships with others facing similar challenges. According to Learned, MVES

Page 8 THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, November 20, 2020 Northeast Metro Tech to transition to hybrid learning W AKEFIELD – Superintendent David DiBarri reported that the School Committee at Northeast Metropolitan Regional Vocational High School (Northeast Metro Tech) voted to transition to the hybrid learning model next month. Students will transition to hybrid learning beginning on Wednesday, December 2. Northeast Metro Tech has followed a remote learning model since school began this fall as a result of a high level of positive COVID-19 cases in Revere, it’s largest sending community. Recently, the state Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) and the Baker-Polito Administration announced that scientific data indicates that schools can operate safely with in-person learning if the proper health and safety protocols are implemented and being followed. As a result, DESE is urging districts to continue fully remote learning models only as a last resort. Districts and schools in communities that – under the state’s updated COVID-19 risk assessment metrics – are designated as “gray,” “green” or “yellow” communities must hold fully in-person learning if possible. Districts in communities designated as “red” – or high-risk areas for COVID-19 – are expected to follow hybrid models and provide in-person learning opportunities as much as possible for students with high needs. However, students at Northeast Metro Tech and their families who wish to continue to pursue fully remote learning may do so. “With DESE’s new guidance and scientific data that illustrates schools can operate safely with the proper precautions in place, our District will be transitioning to hybrid learning,” DiBarri said. “In-person learning is invaluable. Students, especially those pursuing career and technical careers, benefit tremendously from being able to work on hands-on projects alongside their instructors. The social emotional benefits of seeing their friends in-person also cannot be replicated.” “We’ve been preparing for this for several months now, and are ready to return to in-person learning through a hybrid model,” Northeast Metro Tech Principal Carla Scuzzarella said. “Students and staff will be expected to wear their masks, practice social distancing and practice regular hand washing and hand sanitizing. Our facilities will be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected daily and high touch areas will be re-cleaned throughout the school day. We’re excited to welcome everyone back to our facility in the coming weeks.” Students will be divided into two cohorts, which will allow for approximately 50 percent of students to be in the building at any given time on an alternating schedule. Students will be grouped into cohorts for their academic courses, and they will resume their career and technical education through their shops. The district will email students and families with their hybrid learning schedules later this month. Students and staff will be expected to follow several precautions to prevent the spread of COVID-19, including: • Masks will be mandatory for students, faculty and staff at all times during in-person learning. All Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), such as masks, face shields, sanitizer, gloves, thermal thermometers, safety glasses and nurses’ supplies, have been secured and stored. • Six feet of physical distancing will be required in the building, including in classrooms. • Portable walls have been placed in the cafeteria to create extra classroom space to support social distancing. • Shops have been expanded by removing the walls to adjacent classrooms to facilitate social distancing. • Students and teachers have been provided with their own Chromebook laptops. • At each teacher and secretary desk, a Plexiglas shield has been installed. • Handwashing and sanitizing stations are available throughout the school’s facility. • Nano septic touchpads have been installed throughout the building to kill viruses on commonly used surfaces, such as handrails. • An outdoor mobile nurse’s station has been set up. • Professional disinfectant sprayers and equipment, and a UV-C high-power disinfection system have been purchased to be used for thorough, daily classroom cleaning. Air purifiers with UV lights have been placed in every classroom as well. • An airflow consultant has evaluated all the district’s shops and classrooms. • Upgrades to the HVAC system in the basement of the school have been made to improve airflow. • A staggered start and end time to the school day will be implemented to facilitate the transportation requirements outlined by DESE.

McLain caught up with the suspect near Fellsmere Pond and began to question him about the robbery. However, the encounter quickly escalated into a physical confrontation. “Officer McLain was a very capable officer,” Molis said during the ceremony, which was held on the 86th anniversary of McLain’s death. “He was described as the best shot on the department; he engaged that suspect by himself. This was 1934, there were no radios, there were no cell phones – no backup, no body armor.” During the scuffle, Molis said, the suspect pulled out a gun and shot McLain in the forehead. McLain passed away a short time later en route to Malden Hospital. Molis said that like any good police officer, McLain did not hesitate and went “toward the danger” that day. The suspect was taken into custody by the Metropolitan Police Department and was later sentenced to death. At the time of his death, McLain was 63 years old and was the senior officer in the Police Department, wearing Badge No. 1 and serving for more than 30 years. However, because so much time had passed, Molis said he Malden Police announce holiday food drive W Malden Police Officer Isaiah McLain was killed in the line of duty on November 12, 1934.

When the dust settled on Reddit, the fame was not over as many local news outlets reached out to Mayor Christenson for comment on the matter. Can Reddit fame happen a third time? No one knows. But what is certain is that the world is a bit more aware of Malden being a great place to live with a Mayor who cares.                                        

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, November 20, 2020 Page 11 Malden Today, Tomorrow and Yesterday – “Let’s Throw A Malden Block Party, Part 2” By Peter F. Levine T he 2021 Malden Square block party resumes. Let’s continue to think big. Food will be our other ace in the hole – our Jonathan Papelbon out of the bullpen – our prized restaurants go all alfresco on us for the day! From Ming’s to Mystic Station dining in the open air. Music, people watching and some of the finest chow on the North Shore? I’m thinking sushi and martinis on the sidewalk in front of All Season’s Table. Forgetaboutit! I’m also thinking of inviting food booths to set up farther down Pleasant toward Commercial to ply their wares – as long as they serve up something that already isn’t offered by any downtown restaurants. This way they won’t take action away from the brick-and-mortar joints. Paul Solano and Pearl Street Station show up and lay some of those award-winning steak tips on us? Donut Villa. Come on down! Why not invite Joyce Mover and the St. Rocco Society to open their world-famous food stand? Homemade meatballs, sausages and braciola only $4 away?! Bring the fryolator along and gobsmack the unwashed masses with the best fried dough on the North Shore! Almost forgot – Neal Sullivan from Cornucopia sets up shop and offers his delicious holiday pies (Aunt Bee’s homemade pies on the Andy Griffith Show got nothing on Neal’s). Apple, blueberry, pumpkin, anyone?! You get the idea on the food booths, right? I’m not done yet. We make like the Saint Rocco Feast and allow sponsor booths to be placed throughout the Square. Not to sell cheap, meaningless trinkets like “O’Rourke Enterprises” sold to the “Hekawis”! Get Malden Arts in the mix, along with the Malden Historical Society. Paul Hammersley and his Malden Overcoming Addiction committee members have a booth. They are always welcome. Adam Lucey can offer up some of the innovative artwork he has been working on. Here’s one out of left field – lets invite Dorina’s Psychic Readings on Broadway to the party! Wouldn’t that be a trip? Maybe one of the fine barber shops that are sprouting like weeds throughout the city would be willing to set up a booth and give free haircuts? The exposure to the thousands that show up would be worth the day spent on Pleasant. By the way, I 1940s Philly Block Party (Courtesy Photo) kid about the weeds. We open this up to the public, pick and choose who would be suitable for our goals. But you get the idea about the booths, right? Not done, yet. Let’s continue to think big. How could I forget the plethora of comedians and “entertainers” that now reside in Malden? The well-known and the not so well-known. We put my brother from another mother, world-famous funny man entertainer and hard-core Maldonian Dave “The Entertainer” Russo in charge of this. We set them apart from the music because these comedians, they are a sensitive lot. Goddess forbid there is somebody in the audience who doesn’t already adore them. Oh, the pain! I say that with love, Dave. Alright, I have the perfect locale. City Hall incorporated a spot to the side of the building that is as inviting a concrete jungle as you can ask for: secluded, quiet, spacious with the seclusion that Dave, Paul (Gilligan) and Anthony (Scibelli) yearn for. Dave spearheads this comedy effort. He gets local talent, and if he is as well liked as he says he is then he asks some of his big shot, headliner friends to stop by and do the funny thing for 10-15 minutes during the long day. You in, Dave? Joanne (Codi)? Cannot forget Malden’s media center, MATV/UMA! Hailey, Ronny, Terlonzo “Mr. Around the Rim” Amos, Ann and all the gang do a roving reporter – type thing throughout the day for “duty and humanity.” For Maldonians to enjoy in 2120? Maybe Paul Hammersley can pull double duty? If we ask nicely, maybe he sets up his drone and puts together one of those extraordinary videos he is so famous for? From high up above! “This is the end, beautiful friend, this is the end, my only friend, the end” – Okay, I’m done with my rambling. I don’t think we’ll be ready for such a large outdoor gathering by 2021 with the end of the pandemic not yet in sight. With Biden in charge I feel a lot better, but it may be too soon. If not, let’s shelve it until 2022? But until then, let’s think on a smaller scale... Postscript 1: Peter Tosh’s “Crystal Ball” is in rotation on my CD player (yeah, I know, old-fashioned!). The following lyrics got me thinking: “Lookin’ at your crystal ball, culture man / I say: Lookin’ in your crystal ball, culture man / What do you see, culture man / Tell me what do you see, culture man.” Well, I’m no culture man but I did have some thoughts. Until we get our collective arms around this virus, I see an ever changing, always evolving landscape. My sweet granddaughter Lana, born on Valentine’s Day of this year, will know only social distancing and face masks as she grows. Remote learning will be the norm for her. To Lana, navigating this brave new world will become as routine as ordering the latest gadget on Amazon with her mom’s credit card. Looking into the future, I see the continued practice of outside dining now employed by restaurants, large and small alike. I applaud Malden for loosening up regulations a bit and allowing this practice to take place in Malden. The widening of sidewalks on Exchange Street is a prime example of how this ain’t your grandfather’s Malden. When the needs of Malden business speak, City Hall listens (thank you, Kevin Duffy!). Whether the sidewalks were widened to accommodate restaurants or future restaurants, or it is just coincidental, the intended/unintended consequences are just what the doctor ordered for Malden going forward. Once the makeover of Exchange Street is complete, I see it becoming the little brother to Pleasant Street with all kinds of activity for the young and old alike. “Pop-up” cafes? Culturally themed musical performances every night. A sidewalk/pop-up flea market? Let’s see how this all falls into place. The potential is there. And it’s unlimited. Postscript 2: Speaking of Pleasant Street – take a trip down 1961 Pleasant Street with 13-year-old (former Maldonian via San Diego) Barry Almon: “I fancied myself to be quick on my feet. I had a feeling of pride, because of my fleet feet. “So, let me tell you the story of my first trophy. In 1961 I was one of the fastest kids in my neighborhood! I could run like a deer. I could outrun my sister, the older kids and even the cops! Malden had a once a year road race (varying distances by age groups) starting near Beebe JHS and ending in Malden Square. Sponsored by the American Legion. It was about a mile, for 1112-year olds, along a flat stretch of Pleasant Street. Hundreds of kids entered. Some were track athletes who trained, diligently for this, even had special running gear that was functional and fashionable (for that era). Not me! I owned gym shorts, a plain white t-shirt and Converse low cuts. But I had natural skills! I stood next to a kid with a reputation, Stevie Duggan, at the starting line! I was moderately intimidated by his gear and his reputation, but hey, this was my first race, and I had no clue what to expect, totally naïve! The starter raised his gun, voiced, ‘on your mark, get set’ and pulled the trigger! “Off we go! Seems as if I am surrounded by youngsters all hell-bent on pleasing the street lined spectators, as well as their boisterous parents and siblings! Stevie was really smooth, and fast. But guess what? Even though I had difficulty breathing, I kept pace with this kid with the golden locks and sinewy muscled legs and fancy footwear. We passed the A&P, Liggett’s Rexall Drugs, the Strand movie theater, Sparks, Grant’s, The YMCA, FW Woolworth’s and Jordan Marsh. The race didn’t last long. Stevie, and I, left the masses ‘in the dust.’ And got to the finish line, in record time. In fact, even though I finished a close second, my time was better than the existing record! “Stevie’s smile was abundant, as he accepted a three-foot tall golden trophy. I sauntered up to the podium to accept my modest, in comparison, two-foot tall, silver trophy, adorned with a svelte formed runner on the top! I was extremely proud of this award and the fact that I outran everyone in the city (except Stevie). I walked home proudly, exhausted and ready to share with my mom and dad!”

Page 12 THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, November 20, 2020 Wild turkeys in the city: Artists make kids nature videos after COVID cancels their parades W hen a family of wild turkeys visited the Greater Boston backyard of Malden artists Kari Percival and Greg Cook, they and their young sons wondered how the birds came to live in the city. To find the answer, come along with them in their latest art and nature video for kids as they visit Jim Cardoza of MassWildlife, who led the effort to restore wild turkeys to MasPARKING | FROM PAGE 1 ing information with his counterpart, Revere Parking Director James Rose, for some time now, due to the fact that Malden shares the same strategic vision of implementing the resident-only overnight parking plan. The Malden City Council voted in February 2019 to implement the overnight parking plan, and the Parking Review Committee, chaired by Ward 2 Councillor Paul Condon, was established. Plan to purchase erect new signs for private ways Meeting for the first time since February of this year, the committee took some steps toward progressing the plan Monday night. Chief among them was a vote endorsing a proposal by Hogan to purchase approximately 600 new signs (one on each end of the thoroughfare) which would be erected to identify what he said are some 320 private ways around the community. By definition in a municipality, a private way is a street or right of way which has not been fully accepted for various reasons as a city street. Most of them are smaller streets, side courts or terraces, often dead end. However, for reasons not always entirely clear, “normal” appearing streets may still be recorded as “private ways” in city records if they have not been cleared, or “accepted,” by the Department of Public Works and City Engineering Department. Rules vary by community, but in Malden most private ways receive city services, such as snowplowing and trash pickup. A key caveat when discussing parking is that no city regulations on parking, such as the resident-only overnight parking, apply to private ways, by law. Notably, the city will not issue parking tickets or authorize towing from private ways. Thus, the signage, the Counsachusetts after they had been gone for more than 100 years. Then meet a turkey that frequents a Somerville Dunkin’ and watch a family of turkeys roost in a tall oak to sleep the night. Percival and Cook, who make community spectacles under the name Wonderland Spectacle Co., have helped put on Now+There’s Joy Parade through Boston, the Pity Party and Honk Parade in Somerville, Cambridge’s Mermaid Promenade, AS220’s Foo Fest in Providence, Malden’s Parade of Holiday Traditions and Gloucester’s Fishtown Horribles Parade. When COVID-19 shut down the Malden artists’ 2020 events, Cook and Percival (and their two young sons) transitioned into making art and nature videos for kids. They created their first video for Boston’s Children's Museum in May: “Welcome Back Songbirds.” Their videos turn their family’s COVID-19 experience of staying close to home for safe, socially distanced nature walks into explorations of the wildlife around Greater Boston, the wildlife in our own backyards. Their videos show kids how to grow a pumpkin, how to get rid of a (coronavirus) monster, ways to have fun on a rainy day and what you’ll find if you climb to the top of the Blue Hills. Percival is a children’s book author and illustrator with a background as a middle school science teacher. Cook is a journalist and also the creator of Somerville’s Tiny Great Outdoors Festival and Starting Over Festival, community events celebrating wildlife. Ward 2 Councillor Paul Condon Parking Director Ron Hogan cillors agreed Monday. The private ways have to be marked before the parking plan and any regulation goes into effect, so as to eliminate confusion. Anxiety may be caused after identifying private ways All of the Councillors expressed concern that residents who may not have known they were living on a private way would become anxious and fear they would not continue to receive city services. “We just have to explain it to people before we start putting up new signs,” Condon said. “We just have to make it clear they know what services they will receive from the city. Someone dropped the ball on this, and it is up to us to address it. We have to take it piece by piece. We can’t quit on this despite it being a long process.” “If signs go up, there will be a lot of anxiety,” Ward 3 Councillor Amanda Linehan said. “People will have a lot of questions, and we have to be ready to answer them.” Councillor-at-Large Debbie DeMaria said she is ready to help with any information sharing. “It is critical that we continue to make progress on this plan, and I offer my assistance in getting the word out to residents who knew or may not have known they live on private ways and what it means for them.” “Our residents in Malden have to have a place to park,” DeMaria added. “It’s time to take our streets back.” The Councillors also agreed with Hogan’s assessment that the goal of Malden’s implementation of resident-only overnight parking is not to ramp up violator ticket revenue. “We want people to register their vehicles properly as in the city of Malden as Malden residents,” Hogan said, “to capture the lost excise tax revenue as we navigate through the entire process of implementing the parking plan.” “In Everett they’ve started the same plan and increased their vehicle excise tax revenue by $450,000 in the first year,” Condon said, “and they’ve got 35,000 residents to our 60,000plus and a lot fewer cars. What’s Malden’s projection? We have to be looking at higher numbers.” “We hope there’s more meat on the bone than $500,000 in additional revenue,” Hogan said. “It is important that we go about it the right way when we implement and then regulate the program. There’s a whole group – a majority [of residents] – doing it the right way that we have to include to get at the much smaller percentage who are not.” Next steps action plan is laid out for overnight parking Parking Review Committee Chairman Condon said he would like to accompany Hogan for a trip to Revere on an informal fact-finding visit to see firsthand how their program works and to be able to ask questions. Hogan said he would set that up for the near future. At the close of the meeting, Hogan summed up the discussion and laid out a next steps action plan which included: Malden City Councillors are back in action crafting a residentonly, overnight parking plan. (Steve Freker Photo) —Drafting a list of private ways in the city through the Assessor’s Office —Start creating a list of all apartment buildings in Malden with six or more units —Requesting the City Engineer to update the committee on street acceptance practices, so as to move to get the number of private ways in the city reduced —Continue to work with Jim Rose and Revere Parking Department to share the process they are using as Malden advances in its own process On a motion by Councillor DeMaria, the committee voted to send to the full City Council a request to order and fund a supply of signs that could be used to designate private ways around the city. The main issues are nonresidents taking up parking space around the city and also the vehicle excise tax revenue the City of Revere does not get if residents do not register their vehicle properly in Malden.

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, November 20, 2020 Page 13 It is Said in Malden By Steve Freker T hat a group of teachers and administrators at Malden High School got together and are hosting a "Spirit Week" celebration (virtually) next week, similar to the traditional one hosted in-person every "Thanksgiving Week" at the school in anticipation of the traditional Malden-Medford Thanksgiving Football Classic. **** That all the fun begins Monday with "Sports Day" (*wear your favorite team's gear); Tuesday "Bad Hair Day"; Wednesday "Blue and Gold Day" where students wear their best Blue and Gold 12:00 noon that day to: https:/bit.ly/mhsspiritday **** That for the first time since the early 1900s, there will be no Malden-Medford Thanksgiving Day football game next Thursday. **** That it would have been game #133 this year and Malden was due to be the host at Macdonald Stadium. It is expected there will be some fanfare when Malden, as planned, plays Medford in football during "Fall 2" season in April. A Patriot's Day matchup, perhaps? **** That there may be a roundabout local connection to the New England Patriots this season as rumor has it that the daughter of well-known Golden Tornado Hall of Famer Carmine Cappuccio (Class of 1988), Talia Cappuccio, is dating Patriots second-year tight end Ryan Izzo. Both were classmates at Florida State University. **** That despite the fact the Cappuccio family homestead has been in North Carolina for many years, the Cappuccio’s were raised as stalwart Patriots-Celtics-Red Sox fans, we are told. MBTA | FROM PAGE 4 would have to be approved by a vote of the independent state Fiscal Management and Control Board (FMCB) which has had oversight of MBTA finances since its establishment in 2015. Before that, the MBTA is conducting both virtual public engagement meetings, where it presents its plan, and a written comment period, where it accepts participation from the public. Information on both may be obtained by emailing to publicengagement@mbta.com. A virtual meeting specifically designed for the communities of Malden, Everett, Revere, Chelsea and Winthrop was held Wednesday night this week. Over $400M has been invested in transitoriented development in Malden in past five years In speaking against the proposed service changes, the Malden delegation pointed out the extensive public and private, municipally driven financial investment Malden has overseen in transit-oriented development in and around the areas of its two Orange Line stations at Malden Center and Oak Grove and elsewhere in the city. “The City of Malden has pursued zoning reforms and transit-oriented development, which has been strongly encouraged by the Baker administration and these efforts will be severely impacted if the MBTA proceeds with these cuts,” the delegation’s letter stated. “Malden has become the poster child for transit-oriented development with more than 1,500 units of housing built just steps from the Malden Center Orange Line station and Commuter Rail Station in the past five years,” the legislators stated. “The most recent development, J at Malden Center, opened a year ago and includes 320 units of market rate housing, as well as significant retail space and a City Hall condominium – a nearly $200 million private investment…Next door to J at Malden Center is Exchange 200, which is being rehabbed to accommodate life science and new economy tenants. This represents another $150 million in transit-oriented development. These investments rely in large measure on continued access to public transit.” Shown from left to right are Denise Brogna, former Gabby’s Barbershop Owner John Angelo, My Pals Barbershop Owner Dominique Peña, Mayor Gary Christenson, Angel Peña and Anthony Brogna during the recent grand opening of My Pals Barbershop. (Photo Courtesy of the City of Malden) M ayor Gary Christenson recently participated in the ribbon-cutting ceremony of My Pals Barbershop at 252 Highland Ave., the location of the former Gabby’s Barbershop. New owner Dominique Peña revealed that Gabby’s owner, John Angelo, has been a big inspiration to her through her entire life. “His shop was home to many grateful people over the years, making each and every customer feel like family, and his recent retirement left many of us feeling empty,” said Peña. “I hope to continue the great legacy of Gabby’s Barbershop.” The name “My Pals Barbershop” is inspired by Peña’s papa John Cataldo’s private men’s club called “My Pals,” where members would meet once a month to eat, drink and play bocce. Lots of memories and friendships were formed from that group, and she and her husband look forward to forming similar memories at My Pals Barbershop. Peña has been in the hair industry since 2009, and her husband, Angel, has been a barber for more than five years. Hours of operation are Tuesday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. My Pals offers haircuts, shaves and more! They are very excited to be in the neighborhood and part of the community. They look forward to welcoming new faces as well as the old!

While I understand the need for the MBTA to take steps to address their potential budget deficit, I am deeply concerned that these cuts are premature and would cause major harm to our communities. The state legislature is currently debating the state budget for the remainder of this fiscal year, and we also remain hopeful that another federal coronavirus relief bill will be passed by Congress (especially with the new Biden administration) and will very likely include funds for public transit agencies. The cuts being proposed by the MBTA would impact the Winchester Center commuter rail station project; the Melrose Cedar Park station; several bus routes in our region; commuter rail service; and Orange Line service. Reliable, accessible and affordable public transportation is critical to our residents, businesses, and local economic development. Despite the pandemic, many people still rely on public transportation to get to their jobs, school, medical appointments, and elsewhere. Our communities have also been pursuing transit-oriented development, including badly needed affordable housing, and these cuts would put these continued efforts at risk. Delaying important capital projects, closing stations, and unreasonably reducing service levels could have lasting negative impacts for public transit ridership, local housing production, downtown economic development, and our efforts to fight climate change and improve public health. I have already begun to join with my legislative colleagues and local officials to vehemently reject these cuts, and urge the MBTA and Baker administration to slow down this process and reconsider their options. I also encourage residents to participate in the public comment process that is now underway, and share your feedback directly with the leadership of the MBTA. Sincerely, Jason Lewis State Senator My Pals Barbershop celebrates grand opening on Highland Ave

All House roll calls are on proposed amendments to the $46 billion fiscal 2021 state budget that the House considered for two days last week. There were no roll calls in the Senate last week. A LOOK BEHIND THE SCENES OF THE BUDGET “DEBATE” This was the first state budget in the COVID-19 era and most representatives participated virtually from their homes. Most of the decisions on which of the amendments proposed by representatives are included and which are not included in the budget are made “behind closed doors.” Of the 778 budget amendments proposed, most of them are bundled into consolidated amendments by category which are then voted up or down on one vote by the House. This year there were four consolidated amendments, and all but one were approved unanimously and without real debate. The other one received only one negative vote. The system works as follows: Individual representatives file amendments on various topics. Pre-pandemic, members were then invited to “subject meetings” in Room 348 where they pitched their amendments to Democratic leaders who then drafted consolidated amendments that include some of the individual representatives’ amendments while excluding others. This year, negotiations on amendments took place in private Zoom calls, dubbed "348 Zoom,” with a nod to Room 348. Supporters of the system say that any representative who sponsored an excluded amendment can bring it to the floor and ask for an up or down vote on the amendment itself. They say this system has worked well for many years. Opponents say that rarely, if ever, does a member bring his or her amendment to the floor for an up-or-down vote because that is not the way the game is played. It is an “expected tradition” that you accept the fate of your amendment as determined by Democratic leaders. Opponents also say this archaic inside system takes power away from individual members and forces legislators to vote for or against a package of amendments. They argue that individual amendments should be considered on a one-by-one basis on the House floor. $46 BILLION FISCAL 2001 STATE BUDGET (H 5150) House 143-14, approved and sent to the Senate an estimated $46 billion fiscal 2021 state budget that uses $1.5 billion from the state’s Rainy Day Fund to help cover expenses. The House added an estimated $27 million to the price tag of the original version of the budget drafted by the House Ways and Means Committee. Debate was on Tuesday and Thursday instead of the usual four-or five-day period it has taken in the past. The package also includes a controversial amendment that would allow abortions after 24 weeks in the case of lethal fetal anomalies and lower the age from 18 to 16 that a minor can choose to have an abortion without parental or judicial consent. The Massachusetts Taxpayers Foundation says the budget is approximately $285 million larger than the governor’s revised budget and 5.7 percent greater than the final fiscal 2020 budget. Supporters said the package was a reasonable and fiscally responsible one that funds necessary programs without raising taxes. “Amid this unprecedented global pandemic, the House took action to pass a budget that helps to protect those most vulnerable among us as a result of the widespread effects of COVID-19 with significant investments in housing, substance addiction programs, food security and economic development,” said House Speaker Bob DeLeo (D-Winthrop). “I am proud that this budget also furthers the House’s ongoing efforts to help survivors of domestic and sexual assault, safeguard women’s reproductive rights, protect the environment and support high-quality early education and care.” Chief House budget writer and House Ways and Means Committee Aaron Michlewitz (D-Boston) did not respond to repeated attempts by Beacon Hill Roll Call asking him to comment on passage of the budget. Rep. Joseph McKenna (R-Webster) told Beacon Hill Roll Call that he voted against the budget because DeLeo allowed the non-budget policy abortion amendment to be considered despite DeLeo’s recent warning to House members that the budget was no place for outside amendments this year. “After the speaker’s pledge that no policy items would be considered in the budget, I was tremendously disappointed that the Legislature instead took up a tremendously controversial expansion of abortion policy during a lame-duck session,” McKenna told Beacon Hill Roll Call. “I could not support a budget that included these measures.” “Black and Hispanic communities have borne the brunt of this pandemic with lack of adequate healthcare and loss of lives and employment,” said Rep. Russell Holmes (D-Boston). “This budget does not show that the Legislature is serious about staving off our pain. The lack of Blacks and Hispanics in the leadership team and us not being in the room where decisions are being made is apparent.” “Speaker DeLeo and Rep. Michlewitz chose to again ignore the needs of my constituents by not providing funding for my district,” continued Holmes. “They chose instead to continue to fund the earmarks of their districts and those members who are in the ‘good ole boy/girl’ network. I take it very seriously that my constituents send me to the Statehouse to vote on their behalf. Each vote is earned and not given. This budget did not earn their vote. (A “Yes” vote is for the budget. A “No” vote is against it.) Rep. Paul DonatoYes Rep. Steven Ultrino Yes INCREASE ABORTION ACCESS (H 5150) House 108-49, approved a budget amendment that would allow abortions after 24 weeks in the case of lethal fetal anomalies and lower the age from 18 to 16 that a minor can choose to have an abortion without parental or judicial consent. The amendment’s sponsor Rep. Claire Cronin (D-Easton) did not respond to repeated attempts by Beacon Hill Roll Call asking her to comment on passage of the amendment. Republican Minority Leader Brad Jones (D-North Reading) criticized Speaker DeLeo for bringing this non-budget policy proposal forward after DeLeo had said the budget was no place for outside amendments this year. “It raises the question whether agreements and understandings really mean anything,” said Jones. “I don't deny the underlying issue is important, critically important to members and to the public. But to be done as part of the budget process is wrong. I don't care what side of the issue you're on, being done as part of the budget process in a lame duck session, under the cover of darkness, in the midst of a pandemic is wrong." “The House of Representatives has taken a critical first step in removing medically unnecessary barriers to abortion care and ensuring that Bay Staters are no longer forced to fly across country or forced to go to court in order to get the abortion care they need,” read a statement from The ROE Act Coalition which includes the ACLU of Massachusetts, NARAL Pro-Choice Massachusetts and Planned Parenthood Advocacy Fund of Massachusetts. “While our work is far from over, the ROE Act Coalition recognizes the passage of [this amendment] as a significant accomplishment, years in the making.” Rep. Colleen Garry (D-Dracut) pointed out several current laws that prohibit actions by people under the age of 18. “If a young girl cannot get married, if she cannot smoke a cigarette, if she can’t drink alcohol, if she can’t vote—I certainly don’t think that she should be able to get a third-trimester abortion without parental or the judicial bypass,” said Garry. “[In] July 2018 we codified Roe v. Wade. This is not protecting Roe v. Wade, this is expanding abortion to the moment of birth and it is just wrong under those circumstances.” (A Yes” vote is for the amendment expanding abortion. A “No” vote is against it.) Rep. Paul DonatoNo Rep. Steven Ultrino Yes INCREASE SOME TAXES FROM 5 PERCENT TO 9 PERCENT (H 515) House 30-127, rejected an amendment that would have raised the tax rate on long term capital gains, dividends and interest income from 5 percent to 9 percent. Amendment sponsor Rep. Mike Connolly (D-Cambridge) said that this sort of income overwhelmingly goes to the wealthiest households. He said the hike would raise an estimated $1.7 billion annually in new, progressive revenue. He called capital gains, dividends and interest “unearned income” that is unfairly taxed at the same rate that the state taxes “earned income” like wages and salaries. He said this is inherently inequitable and means the person working a minimum wage job is subject to the same Massachusetts income tax rate as the person with a billion dollar investment portfolio. “This additional revenue would allow us to stop the cuts at the MBTA and to boost funding for our regional transit authorities,” said Connolly. “It would allow us to guarantee housing stability and it would give us the means to end homelessness in our commonwealth. It would also enable us to live up to the commitments we proudly made earlier this session with the Student Opportunity Act, and it would further enable us to support our public colleges and universities and to expand access to the full range of health care, childcare and social services, programs that are made all the more critical in this time of worsening pandemic, economic hardship and legal threat to the Affordable Care Act.” Amendment opponents said that calling capital gains, dividends, and interest “unearned income” is totally misleading. They noted that the taxpayer actually originally earned this income and should not be taxed more than once on it. “To a 'progressive' Democrat perpetual tax hikes are the solution to every problem real or imagined,” said Chip Ford, Executive Director of Citizens for Limited Taxation, “and more is never enough.” “Rep. Mike Connolly's defeated amendment to hike the tax rate on so-called 'unearned income' is a perfect example,” added Ford. “He even compared it to the upcoming ‘Millionaire's Tax’ constitutional amendment to unfairly soak the wealthy that’s being pushed onto the 2022 ballot by the liberal wing of the Legislature—most legislators— that is expected to raise an additional $2 billion annually. More is never enough for insatiable taxand-spend 'progressives,’ as this again demonstrates.” “Through the Raise Up Mass coalition, my constituents are calling for greater funding to get us through this crisis and support progressive revenue to do that,” said Rep. Patricia Farley-Bouvier (D-Pittsfield) who voted for the amendment. “In fact, I pledged to a large group just a few weeks back that I would support progressive revenue increases. Though I would have much preferred to take this vote outside the budget proBEACON | SEE PAGE 18

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, November 20, 2020 Page 15 INFORMATION| FROM PAGE 5 families and caregivers of the district’s highest needs students to gauge their status. The goal is to ensure the students are receiving an adequate level of services they require to continue on a positive path of success, according to fi rst-year Assistant Superintendent of Student Services Pamela MacDonald. Assistant Supt. MacDonald, who was hired and began work in mid-September, gave an update on the Special Ed Department’s actions at the Nov. 9 Malden School Committee meeting, which was held virtually via Zoom Webinar. MacDonald reported that about 80 percent of all the Special Ed families or caregivers have been contacted and their needs evaluated, with about 200 of approximately 1,000 families left to go. She said most of the elementary and middle school students’ families had been contacted and had their concerns, if any, noted, addressed or in the process of being addressed. “We’ve made a lot of progress in rebuilding our relationships with a lot of families,” MacDonald said. “Any families with issues needing to be addressed we have followed-up with individual attention.” The Assistant Superintendent said the individual family contact process, which is being followed in conjunction with a School Committee request earlier this year, spearheaded by Members Michelle Luong (Ward 7) and Adam Weldai (Ward 5), has taken additional time partly due to the necessity of using a translation service. Some questions and explanations are being made to some parents of diverse cultures whose home language is not English. “I like how things are coming along overall,” Luong said at the meeting. “I know there are still some parents of students in the elementary grades who have not been contacted, but I am sure you will get to them soon.” Ward 3 School Committee Member Jennifer Spadafora asked about outreach to families of students who are being educated out-of-district by outside agencies. “Those students should be audited, too,” Spadafora said. MacDonald confi rmed there were just over 90 families of out-of-district students and noted that well over 90 percent of those students are in in-person learning situations out of sheer necessity, and there has been little interruption of that education mode, despite the onset of the pandemic. As for the in-district, highneeds Special Ed students, MacDonald said, “We are determining for these students, ‘Where were you on March 11 [when all schools were shut down]? How do we get you back to that level?’” “All of our special needs students have regressed, and our next question is how do we address that regression?” MacDonald added. She said ideas being discussed include extra learning sessions during February and April vacations, a potential “Saturday School” series and possible extended school year programs. Malden Board of Appeal grants two variances, allows another petitioner to withdraw The Malden Board of Appeal granted two variances and allowed another petitioner to withdraw, with the advice to apply again to be heard at a future meeting. These actions and others were taken at the Board of Appeal’s virtual meeting, which this month was telecast Wednesday evening on the Malden Access Television/Urban Media Arts YouTube livestream on the MATV/ UVA website. The Board approved, 4-1, a variance to petitioners Seth and Makeda Brown to make interior improvements to their residence at 48 Boylston St. which will enhance their ability to maintain a dressmaking small business operation out of their home. Unanimous approval, 5-0, was given for a petition by Thomas and Patricia Mahoney, 100 Bainbridge St., to add a small addition to the rear of their home as well as to make interior changes to the first fl oor or their two-family home. Previously, the Mahoneys lived on the second fl oor and other family members had occupied the four-room downstairs living space. In order for them to continue living in the community, Thomas Mahoney said, the longtime residents would like to add space in one section of the home and create a larger space in the middle by knocking down a wall between the existing living room and dining room. Three members of the public, including Ward Four Councillor Ryan O’Malley and two neighbors, Ed Arbo and Ann Lacey, spoke in favor of the petition during the public comment period, as did Malden Building Inspector Nelson Miller. The Board approved a request by a representative of the owner of 72 Bowers Ave. to withdraw a petition without prejudice seeking to replace an existing, nonconforming patio deck with a larger, enclosed space. When it became apparent the existing plan would be approved for a larger space, advising the petitioner that a revised plan for a smaller replacement deck would be viewed more favorably, the petition was withdrawn. It is expected a new plan will be submitted before a future meeting. A fourth petition discussed at Wednesday’ meeting was also withdrawn when it was discovered in the course of questioning that the name of the owner of a residence at 34 Pamela Circle was incorrectly listed in both the legal advertisement and the petition. A person representing the petitioner was advised by Building Inspector Miller that the legal ad was a legal document for future reference and that problems could arise in future reviews of petitions regarding this property. The representative expressed concern over the cost of re-advertising the petition, preferably before the next meeting in December, but realized there was no other option and agreed to follow that route and resubmit the petition and properly advertise with the correct name. MRA Board approves $23,717 in change orders to Trafton Park rehab project The Malden Redevelopment Authority (MRA) Board of Directors at its regular monthly meeting Tuesday night approved several changes to the Trafton Park rehabilitation project, totaling just over $23,000. The changes will not drive up the cost of the project since the funds have been pledged to be covered by the mitigation fund accounts of City Councillors David Camell (Ward 6), Steve Winslow (Councillor-at-Large), Debbie DeMaria (Councillor-at-Large) and Craig Spadafora (Councillor-at-Large), according to MRA Executive Director Deborah Burke. The additional changer orders include the removal of additional ledge, which was not foreseen in the original plan, costing an additional $7,900; the removal of a dead tree, which apparently is in danger of falling down in heavy winds, at a cost of $4,000; and the replacement of four leaching basins fi lled with clay and silt, which will come to $12,127. The construction began last month on the $625,000 project and it is expected to be completed by late spring, 2021.

Matewsky, Jr. Of EverSOCIAL 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. Nothing uncomplicated about social security benefits when dealing with divorce. Joseph D.

Page 18 avvya yavvy en oniorior avvy S ior io Remembering the Details Before you begin your search, a good fi rst step is to jot down any information you can remember or fi nd out about the people you’re trying to locate. Things like their full name (maiden and married), age or birth date, last known address or phone number, old e-mail address, names of family members, etc. Knowing details can help you turn up clues while you search. Social Media and Search Engines After you compile your information, a good place to start your search is at social media sites like Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and Instagram. And search engines like Google and Yahoo. When using search engines, type in the name of the person you’re searching for in quotation marks, for example, “John Smith.” You can narrow your search by adding other criteria like their nickname or middle name, the city or state they may live in, or even their occupation. People Search Sites If your initial search comes up empty, you can also use people searches like AnyWho.com, Intelius.com or WhitePages.com. These sites will provide a list of potential matches from across the U.S. Because many people share the same name, these sites will also supply details to help identify the right person, perhaps including their age, prior hometowns, names of relatives, colleges attended or employer. While these sites are free to use at a basic level, they charge a small fee for providing certain details like the persons contact information. White Pages, however, sometimes provides home phone numbers for free. Niche Finding Sites Here are a few other niche people-fi nding websites to help you with your search. To look for old high school classmates, try Classmates.com. This site has contact information only for people who have registered with it. But even if your friend hasn’t registered, it could provide contact info for another classmate who remains in touch with your friend. Another option is to check out your high school alumni website. Not every school has its own site, but some do, and you can look for it by going to any search engine and typing in the name of the school with the city and state it’s located in. You can also search at AlumniClass.com, a huge hosting site for thousands of high schools across the U.S. If you’re looking for old college friends, look for an alumni directory on the school’s website. You might be able to access your friend’s contact info by completing an online registration. Or, try calling or emailing your alumni relations department and ask them to pass on your contact info to your friend. If you’re looking for someone you served with in the military, Military.com off ers a free “Buddy Finder” service that has a database of more than 20 million records – visit Military.com/buddy-fi nder. You can also search for free at GIsearch.com, TogetherWeServed. com and VetFriends.com. If you can’t fi nd any current information about the person you’re searching for, it could be that he or she is dead.

Many legislators say that legislative sessions are only one aspect of the Legislature's job and that a lot of important work is done outside of the House and Senate chambers. They note that their jobs also involve committee work, research, constituent work and other matters that are important to their districts. Critics say that the Legislature does not meet regularly or long enough to debate and vote in public view on the thousands of pieces of legislation that have been fi led. They note that the infrequency and brief length of sessions are misguided and lead to irresponsible latenight sessions and a mad rush to act on dozens of bills in the days immediately preceding the end of an annual session.
