Skwierawski presented a number of gob-smacking facts, including that more than 12,000 Revere residents are low-income, of which 44 percent are extremely low-income and would qualify for housing assistance. However, there is only one aff ordable unit available for every seven people or households in need. Revere has the lowest median household income in the area, but also the highest rents.

Employees of Agero then “adopt” and shop for these residents, collecting items on the list and fulfi lling their holiday wishes.

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, JANUARY 6, 2023 Page 5 ~ LETTER TO EDITOR ~ How Will Revere Pay for a $499M New High School? T he proposed cost for the new high school is an issue every homeowner should be concerned about. Especially, since the approximate budget was recently requested to be increased by another $120M, bringing the grand total to approximately just under $500M or a HALF BILLION DOLLARS! Where exactly will the money come from to pay for it? Overall, the majority of residents in Revere are made up of blue collar working class citizens and do not fall in a high annual income bracket. With the increase of heating costs, electricity, food and the overall rising rate of infl ation, I think we can all agree that almost everyone is feeling the squeeze on their finances. All of these increases are making it increasingly more diffi cult for homeowners to aff ord to stay in their homes. Another price hike, for example to real estate taxes, could be the last straw which could force homeowners to sell their homes! Homes they love and have owned for years! Nevertheless, to be fair, let’s consider the need for a new high school. It is true that a new high school may be necessary but why not build on the existing parcel where the current high school sits which would surely reduce and limit costs? Certainly, the existing high school could be modifi ed, enlarged, remodeled, etc., to provide for additional space & updates. In addition, the proposed site for the new high school presents a whole host of potential problems. For example, we’ve heard about issues regarding fl ooding and poor traffi c conditions which could raise safety concerns. In the alternative, however, these issues pose no threat at the existing site of the current high school. So why wasn’t this option given more consideration? And, while on the topic of necessity, how about the overdue need for a new Senior Center? The current Senior Center is in deplorable condition. So much so that the majority of seniors don’t even go to it. Yet, year after year, residents are told the City cannot afford to build a new Senior Center for its beloved Senior Citizens. A further discussion regarding the approx $499M cost to build the new high school will be discussed during a future Ways & Means Subcommittee meeting. A date for this meeting has not yet been scheduled. However, since the City must know exactly how it expects to pay for this nearly $500M build, they must disclose that plan, at that meeting, so that taxpayers can be made aware of exactly how much their real estate taxes are expected to increase. There should also be a discussion regarding a real estate tax credit which could be made available to homeowners who do not have children attending the public school system. This is a fair and reasonable option that should be given serious consideration. Lastly, let’s make mention to priorities. A few months ago, we all read about ‘public outcry’ due to certain streets having made changes to their traffi c patterns, yet almost no attention has been given to this extremely important issue … an issue which will negatively affect our pocketbooks not just our habitual route to Market Basket! Paying for a half-billion dollar project defi nitely deserves more transparency with regard to the impact it will have on homeowners and real estate taxes. Contact City Hall, your Ward City Councilor and Councilors At Large and let them know you’d like to know how this nearly $500M bill is going to be paid for and exactly how it’s expected to increase your real estate taxes!

The Patriots led by three entering the fi nal quarter but were outscored 10-4 over the last eight minutes in a 3532 defeat at the hands of the Titans. Center Belma Velic reached double fi gures with 12 points. She also hauled down eight rebounds and blocked two shots. Freshman Shayna Smith added a double-double eff ort to the proceedings with 10 points and 10 boards. “It was a highly competitive and close game. We were once again down a starter, but we adapted better in this game,” said Revere Head Coach Chris Patriots guard Lorena Martinez looks to penetrate to the hoop against Milton. Porrazzo after it was over. “We had control but then got outscored 10-4 in the fi nal frame. We lost our poise there in the end. But we are doing our best to take it as a learning experience.” The Patriots were also missing a key starter in last Thursday’s tourney opener against Milton, and roles had to be shifted as a result, according to Porrazzo. The Patriots fell behind 23-10 after the first half and couldn’t recover in an eventual 46-25 loss. Haley Belloise was Revere’s leading scorer with nine points, followed by Velic with six and sophomore Lea Doucette with four.

Our inexperience showed,” Porrazzo observed. “Milton plays in a very tough league, and all of their strengths shined against us. They are a talented and well-coached team.” On Tuesday, the Patriots dropped a 56-47 decision to Lynn English in a Greater Boston League (GBL) clash. The defeat left Revere with a 1-5 overall record and a 1-3 mark in the GBL. Velic poured in 17 points and Belloise canned 14 points to lead the Patriots, who also got eight points from Nisrin Sekkat and fi ve from Marwa Riad.

Page 12 THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, JANUARY 6, 2023 National Nonprofit Wreaths Across America Announces New Theme for 2023 “Serve and Succeed” COLUMBIA FALLS, Maine — Jan. 5, 2023 — Each year, millions of Americans come together to REMEMBER the fallen, HONOR those that serve and their families, and TEACH the next generation about the value of freedom. This gathering of volunteers and patriots takes place in local, state and national cemeteries in all 50 states - most recently at 3,702 participating locations - as part of National Wreaths Across America Day. Each year, a new theme is chosen to help volunteers and supporters focus their messaging and outreach in their own communities. Today, the national nonprofi t announces the theme for 2023 is “Serve and Succeed.” The inspiration for this year’s theme came while discussing the significance of 2022’s theme, which was “Find a Way to Serve,” and the need to continue to stress the importance of service and the positive ways it can impact lives. Wreaths Across America plans to focus on the storylines of veterans and military families who have found success through their own service, while also highlighting local volunteers across the country and the success that comes from serving their communities. The organization will continue its commitment to supporting and bringing attention to the needs of our veteran community while also showcasing the continued contributions of those who serve. “There are many ways to serve your community and country, and just as many definitions of success,” said Karen Worcester, executive director, Wreaths Across America. “We hope through focusing on those stories of success we will help change the dialogue around what it means to serve your country.” In 2022, more than 2.7 million veterans’ wreaths were placed by volunteers on headstones at 3,702 participating locations around the country in HONOR | SEE Page 15      T MASSHEALTH ESTATE RECOVERY he MassHealth estate recovery claim is a creature of state and federal statute and regulation. Because such claims arise and are enforced under Massachusetts law by the state’s Division of Medical Assistance, state law and administrative practices are of much concern to the general public and to elder law attorneys. The Massachusetts statute specifi es that the state shall recover all MassHealth (Medicaid) benefi ts paid on a recipient’s behalf where the recipient was age 55 or over as of the time of receipt and the services were provided after October 1, 1993. Federal law mandates such recovery as the federal government reimburses the Commonwealth of Massachusetts approximately 50 cents for every dollar expended for such benefi ts. Massachusetts will recoup all MassHealth benefi ts paid on the recipient’s behalf, regardless of the service for which it was paid and regardless of whether the recipient lived in the community or was institutionalized in a long-term care facility. It is irrelevant whether the payments were for nursing home care, prescription drugs, hospitalization for a particular illness, a Medicare copayment for an indigent elder picked up by MassHealth or visiting nurse services to keep the elder at home. Since 1989, the general rule                         From all of us at Carpenito Real Estate... in Massachusetts has been that a creditor of the estate must bring his or her claim by fi ling suit within one year of the decedent’s death, or the claim is barred. Even after the year has passed, however, the Division of Medical Assistance (DMA) can still protect its claim by fi ling it within four months of the fi duciary’s appointment. In short, the crucial deadline for Medicaid claims is the later of one year from the date of death or four months from the fi duciary’s appointment. The DMA would bring suit against the estate’s executor or administrator in a court of competent jurisdiction. The DMA’s chosen forum is the Boston Municipal Court. Previous proposed legislation 335 Central Street, Saugus, MA 01906 (781) 233-7300 View all our listings at: CarpenitoRealEstate.com by the Romney administration had sought to expand estate recovery to include assets beyond the decedent’s probate estate. The law has been that only assets that were in the MassHealth recipient’s name at the time of his or her death were subject to estate recovery (i.e. the recipient’s probate estate). The Romney administration attempted to expand estate recovery to include virtually all property interests possessed by the MassHealth recipient at the time of his or her death such as life insurance, life estates, jointly owned property, living trusts, tenants by the entirety, IRA’s, 401(k)’s, etc. Those attempted expanded recovery rules were slated to take eff ect on January 1, 2004. Subsequently, the state legislature delayed implementation until July 1 of that year as a result of heightened pressure from many elder lobbyist groups, the Mass Chapter of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys and the elderly population itself. Then, our state legislature went a step further by repealing the expanded estate recovery provisions altogether. Expanded estate recovery is not law today in Massachusetts. It is still very important to keep in mind that you should try to avoid probate if at all possible. Even an untimely death at a younger age might lead to a massive estate recovery claim against your probate estate if you had been receiving MassHealth benefits after having reached 55 years of age. At the present time, expanded estate recovery is not on the horizon. That’s a good thing insofar as asset protection is concerned. Nonetheless, dying with a probate estate might result in much more than the cost of probate itself. It could very well result in an obligation for the Personal Representative of the estate to repay a very large lien assessed by the Estate Recovery Unit. Joseph D.

It has been a privilege to serve in the House, and I am looking forward to continuing the work upon the new session. This year was very diff erent than my fi rst swearing in. Two years ago, I stood alone with my classmates. There were no friends or supporters to celebrate and no family to embrace. This year as I took my oath of office, I was surrounded by colleagues and friends, old and new, my family and theirs. It was a blessing to be able to share this important moment in my life with the people I cherish most. It is an honor and a privilege to be the 215th woman to be elected to the Massachusetts legislature.” Revere’s constituents have observed and supported Rep.

The Fire Department also received a high-water rescue vehicle, a huge truck with big tires and plenty of highground clearance that should assure residents in parts of the city prone to flooding that the Fire Department has their backs. “We have 100year storms coming every year now,” said Bright, who added that he now feels better about the department’s ability to respond to diff erent emergencies. In recent years, especially pandemic years, Revere has struggled with a need for additional equipment. Last year, the department was using a borrowed Chelsea fire truck when it bottomed out on Cushman Avenue on the way to a call, which caused extensive damage, placing that truck out of commission. “Our neighbors have helped out,” said Bright, adding that every fi re department is hurting for equipment. “It’s not just a Revere Fire Department problem,” he said. “Everyone’s scrambling to keep apparatus.” And it’s not just fi nding the roughly $750,000 for a new fi re engine. It’s also a challenge to continually repair and maintain the new equipment. There are state and federal grants available to help local fire departments stay equipped, and Bright said he is always looking out for those opportunities. But in a Facebook post, he thanked Mayor Brian Arrigo and CFO Richard Viscay for fi nding the funding for the new trucks. Like other city services, the fi re department has endured staffing and budget cuts while the city has continued to grow. “We’re slowly gaining back to where we need to be,” said Bright. “This will help us a lot.” But Bright also acknowledged there are still huge projects going up in Revere and nobody is exactly sure where they’ll need to be until they arrive. “We’re trying to lay the track for it now,” he said. 5.

This week, Beacon Hill Roll Call concludes its series on highlighting bills that were approved by the Legislature in 2022 on roll call votes and signed into law by Gov. Charlie Baker. ALLOW AMBULANCES TO BE USED FOR INJURED POLICE DOGS – NERO’S LAW (S 2573) Senate 38-0, (House on a voice vote without a roll call), approved and Gov. Charlie Baker signed into law legislation that would require EMS personnel to provide emergency treatment to a police dog and use an ambulance to transport the dog injured in the line of duty to a veterinary clinic or veterinary hospital if there are not people requiring emergency medical treatment or transport at that time. Sponsor Sen. Mark Montigny (DNew Bedford) first filed the bill in 2019 following the tragic death of Yarmouth Police Sgt. Sean Gannon who was shot and killed in the line of duty. His K-9 partner Nero was severely injured and had to be rushed to the animal hospital in the back of a police cruiser. Nero survived. Montigny also cites the heartbreaking loss of the beloved K-9 Kitt of the Braintree Police Department. “K-9 offi cers protect the men and women in law enforcement as well as the community at-large,” said Montigny. “These animals endure extreme danger from gun violence, narcotics and even explosive materials. Allowing our emergency personnel to provide basic treatment and transport is a commonsense measure that honors their contributions across the commonwealth. Sgt. Gannon was a native son of New Bedford and therefore his K-9 partner Nero is part of our community’s extended family. Words cannot describe the gratitude we have for the Gannon family for their tenacious and compassionate advocacy to get this bill done.” “With Nero’s Law, we have the opportunity to save K-9 members of law enforcement where the opportunity to do so would not place a person at risk,” said Sen. Susan Moran (D-Falmouth). “K-9s are their offi cers’ partners, shields and scouts. Like Nero and Kitt, their job is to put themselves in danger to protect us, and despite the K-9s’ service to our commonwealth, an archaic law stood in the way of measures that could save these valued members of law enforcement. This has gone on long enough.” (A “Yes” vote is for the bill.) Sen. Lydia Edwards Was not yet elected MAKE ADOPTION BY FAMILY MEMBERS EASIER (S 2616) Senate 39-0, (House on a voice vote without a roll call), approved and the governor signed into law a bill that repeals a law which prohibits adoption of children by family members including older siblings, aunts and uncles. The proposal would allow these family members, with the permission of the county probate courts, to legally adopt their family members. Current law only allows these family members to apply to become a guardian. Sponsor Sen. Joan Lovely (D-Salem) said that this archaic law was put in place at the beginning of the last century to prevent the potential for inheritance abuse, but the commonwealth has since adopted legal protections, such as conservatorships, to prevent this from occurring. “Our families are often our largest sources of support and what a family looks like can mean diff erent things to diff erent people,” said Lovely. “I fi led [the bill] to better refl ect the realities of the lives of Massachusetts residents who love and care for one another … our most vulnerable youth deserve to be cared for by the people who know and love them, and who can best assess their needs.” (A “Yes” vote is for the bill.) Sen. Lydia Edwards Was not yet elected ACCESS TO BIRTH CERTIFICATES (S 2294) Senate 40-0, (House on a voice vote without a roll call), approved and Gov. Baker signed legislation giving equal access to original birth certifi cates to all persons born in Massachusetts. Under prior law, adoptees born between 1974 and 2008 were unable to obtain original birth certifi cates without a court order that also unseals their record. The measure closes this gap and allows adopted individuals over the age of 18 or the adoptive parents of a child under 18 to access the adoptee’s original birth certifi cate without the unsealing of the information. “The Joint Committee on Public Health heard powerful testimony from adoptees who could not access their original birth certifi cate due to a current loophole in state law addressed by this legislation,” said Sen. Jo Comerford (D-Northampton), Senate Chair of the Committee on Public Health. “The Senate took a major step in assuring equality by guaranteeing that all adoptees, regardless of when they were born, will have access to their original birth certifi cate,” said Sen. Anne Gobi (D-Spencer), sponsor of the bill. She noted that she has waited six years for its passage and that so many have waited their entire lives. “We tell them the wait is over and they matter,” said Gobi. “Many adoptees have been waiting their whole lives to learn their history, and I am honored to have played a part in helping them access their original birth certifi cates,” said Sen. Joan Lovely (D-Salem). “For the sake of preserving our health and well-being, it is crucial to know what physical or mental health conditions to which we may be predisposed. By giving all adoptees born in Massachusetts access to their original birth certifi cates, this legislation closes a 34-year gap granting generations of individuals medical knowledge they have otherwise been denied.” (A “Yes” vote is for the bill.) Sen. Lydia Edwards Yes ACCESS TO MENTAL HEALTH CARE (S 3097) Senate 39-0, (House on a voice vote without a roll call), approved and Gov. Baker signed into law a bill designed to make mental health care more accessible in the Bay State. Provisions include mandating coverage for an annual mental health wellness exam, comparable to an annual physical; a public awareness campaign on the state’s red fl ag laws that limit access to guns for people at risk of hurting themselves or others; implementation of the nationwide 988 hotline to access 24/7 suicide prevention and behavioral health crisis services; mandating coverage and eliminating prior authorization for mental health acute treatment and stabilization services for adults and children; establishing an Offi ce of Behavioral Health Promotion to coordinate all state initiatives that promote mental, emotional and behavioral health and wellness for residents; and creating an interim licensure level for licensed mental health counselors so that they can be reimbursed by insurance for their services and be eligible for state and federal grant and loan forgiveness programs. “The Massachusetts Legislature took vital strides toward transforming mental health care in Massachusetts,” said Sen. Julian Cyr (D-Truro), Senate chair of the Committee on Mental Health, Substance Use and Recovery. “By unanimously passing the Mental Health ABC Act, we affi rm that mental health is just as essential as physical health and take a leap forward to ensure that all people in Massachusetts can access the mental health care they need and deserve.” “Too many people in communities across the commonwealth struggle to get the mental, emotional and behavioral health care they deserve,” said Rep. Adrian Madaro (D-Boston), House Chair of the Joint Committee on Mental Health, Substance Use and Recovery. “This legislation helps reduce barriers to resources, support, and treatment residents need for their overall wellbeing. It enables enforcement of existing parity laws, enhances emergency response services and acute psychiatric care, develops programs to strengthen the workforce and invests in mental health. Importantly, our legislation also creates initiatives to address the unique mental health needs of young people. This legislation is the fi rst step in addressing the structural defi cits in our mental health care delivery system by prioritizing the people it serves and the people who make it work.” “The health care system in Massachusetts is only as strong as its weakest link, and for far too long, mental health care has been overlooked and underfunded,” said Sen. Cindy Friedman (D-Arlington), Senate Chair of the Committee on Health Care Financing. “This legislation confronts this reality with the most comprehensive mental health care legislation the commonwealth has seen in recent years, and it builds off of the historic investments we made in this care system over this past two-year legislative session. Of particular importance to me, this bill will fi nally provide the state the tools it needs to enforce existing mental health parity laws and it will address the emergency department boarding crisis that’s impacting too many of our children and their families. I have long believed that Massachusetts should deliver affordable, high quality, and accessible care to its residents, and this includes mental health care.” (A “Yes” vote is for the bill.) Sen. Lydia Edwards Yes ALSO, UP ON BEACON HILL PAY HIKES FOR LEGISLATORS, MAURA HEALEY AND OTHERS – The governor, lt. governor, treasurer, secretary of state, attorney general, auditor, 40 senators and 160 representatives will all receive pay raises when they assume offi ce on January 3, 2023. Here’s how it all went down last week: Outgoing Gov. Charlie Baker announced that the 200 members of the Legislature will receive a 4.42 percent pay hike for the 2023-2024 legislative session that begins January 3, 2023. The hike will increase the base salary of each senator and representative by $3,117 per year— from the current $70,537 to $73,654. The total cost of the hike for all 200 legislators is $623,400 per year. Baker is required under the state constitution to determine the amount of a pay raise or cut that state legislators would receive for the 2023-2024 session. All Massachusetts governors are obligated to increase or decrease legislative salaries biennially under the terms of a constitutional amendment approved by the voters in 1998. The amendment, approved by a better than two-to-one margin, requires legislative salaries to be “increased or decreased at the same rate as increases or decreases in the median household income for the commonwealth for the preceding two-year period, as ascertained by the governor.” Looking back, legislators’ salaries were increased by $4,280 per year for the 2021-2022 legislative session, $3,709 per year for the 20192020 legislative session and $2,525 per year for the 2017-2018 session. Those hikes came on the heels of a salary freeze for the 2015-2016 legislative session, a $1,100 pay cut for the 2013-2014 session and a $306 pay cut for the 2011-2012 session. Prior to 2011, legislators’ salaries had been raised every two years since the preconstitutional amendment base pay of $46,410 in 1998. The new $73,654 salary means the 1998 legislative salary of $46,410 has been raised $27,244 or 58.7 percent. In the meantime, a second pay hike for close to 70 percent of the state’s 200 legislators also takes eff ect January 3. Currently an estimated 139, or almost 70 percent, of the state’s 200 legislators receive a stipend for their service in Democratic or Republican leadership positions, as committee chairs or vice chairs and as the ranking Republican on some committees. All 40 senators and 99 of the 160 representatives receive this bonus pay which currently ranges from $17,039 to $90,876. Legislation approved by the Legislature in 2017 requires that every two years the stipends of these 139 legislators be increased or decreased based on data from the Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) that measures the quarterly change in salaries and wages. That formula will raise the stipend in 2023 for all of these 139 legislators. The biggest hike goes to House Speaker Ron Mariano and Senate President Karen Spilka’s whose salaries will rise from $178,473 to more than $214,000. And there’s more. The 2017 law also requires that every two years the salaries of the governor and the other fi ve constitutional statewide offi cers be increased or decreased based on the same data from the BEA. Incoming Gov. Healey’s salary will increase by $37,185 above Baker’s current $185,000 salary for a total of $222,185. Healey also will receive the governor’s standard $65,000 housing allowance bringing her total annual compensation $287,185 in 2023. Incoming Lt. Governor Kim Driscoll’s pay will increase by $33.165-- from $165,000 to $198,165 under the 2017 law. Supporters defend the hikes noting that voters themselves in 1998 approved the adjustment for all future legislators every two years and that two independent commissions had recommended many of the other hikes in 2017.

Page 16 THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, JANUARY 6, 2023 BEACON | FROM Page 14 portant to pay government offi cials a salary adequate enough to enable a family breadwinner or a professional to run for the offi ce and serve. Critics of the hikes were quick to respond. “It appears the fi rst act the Legislature and Statehouse leaders are set to take after the narrow passage of Question 1 is to accept a 20 percent pay raise,” said Paul Craney, spokesman for Massachusetts Fiscal Alliance. “Voters were told the 80 percent income tax hike in Question 1 would go to education and transportation needs but Statehouse leaders are taking care of themselves before anyone else with their largest pay raise since 2017. Question 1 is set to raise taxes … and for many small business owners, retirees, home sales and high-income earners, they will be shocked to see their taxes go up by 80 percent.” 4 PERCENT INCOME TAX HIKE ON EARNINGS OVER $1 MILLION ANNUALLY TAKES EFFECT JANUARY 1 – Beginning with 2023 earnings, taxpayers who earn more than $1 million annually will pay an additional 4 percent income tax, in addition to the current fl at 5 percent one, on their earnings of more than $1 million annually. Language in this new constitutional amendment, approved as Question 1 by voters in November 2022, requires that “subject to appropriation” the revenue will go to fund quality public education, aff ordable public colleges and universities and for the repair and maintenance of roads, bridges and public transportation. “Our coalition of community organizations, faith-based groups, and labor unions is committed to protecting the will of the people as expressed through Question 1: higher taxes on those who can most afford them, and greater investment in transportation and public education across the state,” said Steve Crawford, spokesman for Raise Up Massachusetts, the group that spearheaded the Vote Yes on Question 1 campaign and promoted the question as the Fair Share Amendment. “We will work with state leaders to ensure that the new revenue from the Fair Share Amendment is directed toward critical investments in our classrooms, campuses and transportation systems. And we will fi ght any eff orts to weaken the Fair Share Amendment by creating new tax breaks, avoidance schemes or giveaways for the ultra-rich.” “For some taxpayers, Question 1 will mean an 80 percent increase to their state income tax,” said Paul Craney, spokesman for the Mass Fiscal Alliance. “The taxpayers that will be impacted by this are small business owners, retirees, home sales and high-income earners. The only appropriate response by the speaker, Senate president and Governor Elect Maura Healey is to support broad tax cuts and tax eliminations that everyone will benefi t from. Massachusetts is on the verge of returning to the days of Taxachusetts unless these broad tax cuts are adopted and they must be done so very quickly because the negative impacts associated from Question 1 will not wait.” REVENGE PORN (S 3167) - Senate approved a proposal that would prohibit the posting of sexually explicit images of another person online without their permission—commonly referred to as “revenge porn.” The practice is often used by ex-spouses or ex-partners. Massachusetts is one of only two states that does not have a law about this crime. Another provision changes current law under which minors, under 18 years of age, who share explicit images of themselves or other minors can be charged with violating Massachusetts child pornography laws and are required to register with the Sex Offender Registry. The bill allows minors to be diverted to an educational program that would provide them with information about the consequences of posting or transmitting indecent visual depictions of minors. Sen. Jamie Eldridge (D-Acton), the Senate chair of the Judiciary Committee, said the bill addresses the highly charged subjects of juvenile sexting and revenge porn. “I’m pleased that the Senate is taking action on a unifi ed bill this week,” said Eldridge. “I commend the victims for their passionate advocacy and applaud their courage in coming forward to tell their stories.” “Under current law, when faced with an incident of sexting among teenagers, the police are forced with either charging them with a felony or doing nothing,” said sponsor Rep. Jeff Roy (D-Franklin). “The bill … provides law enforcement offi cers with a middle ground that will allow them to educate kids about the consequences of their actions without ruining their lives. It will have a tremendous impact on people who have become entangled in the web and transmittal of images that can cause traumatic and lifetime harm through a diversion program that will educate them about the legal and personal consequences of ‘sexting.’” The House approved a different version of the measure in May. The Senate version now goes to the House for consideration. THEFT OF CATALYTIC CONVERTERS (S 3169) – The House approved and sent to the Senate a bill that would create a “chain of custody” for used catalytic converter sales. A catalytic converter is a device that converts the environmentally hazardous exhaust emitted by a vehicle’s engine into less harmful gasses. The measure requires the buyer to keep records of each converter purchased, from which vehicle it was removed from and who the seller was. These records would be made available upon request to law enforcement. Supporters explained that several communities have seen a rise in catalytic converter thefts because the converters use platinum, palladium or rhodium to operate. According to the National Insurance Crime Bureau, the values of these precious metals contained inside catalytic converters have skyrocketed and is staggering. As of March 2022, rhodium is valued at $20,000 per ounce; palladium at $2,938 per ounce; and platinum at $1,128 per ounce. For thieves, this means a catalytic converter might be a better score than the average wedding band or gold watch. “Many scrapyards and black-market buyers have an open call out for catalytic converters, which they turn around and sell to metal recyclers,” says the Cavallo and Signoriello Insurance Agency in Massachusetts. “Ten years ago, a thief could earn between $20 and $200 per stolen converter. Today, thanks to the spike in the value of these metals, that range is more like $300 to $850, for just a few minutes of work.” “Catalytic theft is an epidemic,” said House sponsor Rep. Steve Howitt (RSeekonk). “It is not only very costly to the vehicle owner, if they do not have comprehensive insurance, it creates an inconvenience to have repairs done. This bill would try to tighten up the market in Massachusetts for these thieves to pawn their stolen goods.” The House approved a different version of the measure in October. The Senate version now goes to the House for consideration. MINIMUM WAGE HIKE FROM $14.25 TO $15 PER HOUR EFFECTIVE JANUARY 1 – Effective January 1, 2023 the state’s minimum wage rises from $14.25 per hour to $15 per hour. This hike is the fi nal one of fi ve annual increases mandated by a law passed in 2018 that has brough the minimum wage from $11 per hour in 2018 to the current $15 per hour. In addition, the minimum wage for tipped workers will increase from $6.15 per hour to $6.75 per hour— provided that their tips bring them up to at least $15 per hour. If the total hourly rate for the employee including tips does not equal $15 at the end of a shift, the employer is required to make up the diff erence. “I’m pleased to see this scheduled increase to our minimum wage go into eff ect,” said Rep. Josh Cutler (DDuxbury), House chair of the Labor and Workforce Development Committee. “It is welcome news for many workers, though clearly more help is needed to support hardworking families struggling with rising costs.” “With high infl ation, worker shortages and supply chain disruptions, the upcoming minimum wage increase is just the latest challenge for Massachusetts small business owners,” said Christopher Carlozzi, the Massachusetts state director of the National Federation of Independent Business. “With the cost of labor rising, the price tag of products and services will also rise, and those costs will likely be passed to consumers. Main Street and consumers need relief but unfortunately this wage hike will only create more uncertainty.” “It’s time for a truly universal minimum wage that keeps up with rising costs and supports working families,” said Chrissy Lynch, Chief of Staff of the Massachusetts AFL-CIO. “Our coalition of community organizations, faith-based groups and labor unions is looking at how to get us closer to that goal. And we won’t stop until working people across the state have true living wages.” “While it’s important to help those who are most vulnerable, an increase to the state minimum wage rate actually does the opposite,” said Paul Craney, Executive Director of the Massachusetts Fiscal Alliance. “Massachusetts will have the highest minimum wage rate of all the states in New England. This will further incentivize retail chains to continue to automate jobs that otherwise could have gone to minimum wage workers. Once this job is eliminated, it does not come back. The result will be higher costs for the consumer, higher costs for businesses and less available minimum wage jobs for workers who need to enter our workforce.” “Despite the progress we’ve made, the minimum wage is still insuffi cient to meet the needs of working families, especially amid rising infl ation,” said Beth Kontos, president of the Massachusetts branch of the American Federation of Teachers. “And some workers are still not covered by the minimum wage, including municipal workers who have devoted their lives to public service and deserve more than poverty wages.” INFLAMMATORY BREAST CANCER (H 3147) – The House approved a bill that would establish an Infl ammatory Breast Cancer Awareness Day in Massachusetts, the second Tuesday of every October. “I was thrilled that my colleagues and I were able to pass this very important piece of legislation,” said sponsor Rep. Sean Garballey (D-Arlington). “This designation will go a long way to increase awareness and strengthen eff orts to provide education about this rare and aggressive disease. Inflammatory Breast Cancer is the most aggressive form of breast cancer and the least understood. Many women receiving this diagnosis have never heard of Infl ammatory Breast Cancer or its presentation. Infl ammatory Breast Cancer accounts for 1 percent to 5 percent of all breast cancer cases yet represents 10 percent of all deaths due to breast cancer.” QUOTABLE QUOTES “A goal of the Massachusetts Department of Agricultural Resources is to help keep the state’s food supply safe and secure. By assisting farmers with grants and technical assistance, the Baker-Polito Administration is helping to modernize their operations, open new market channels and meet regulatory requirements that will directly benefi t farmers and consumers of their products.” ---Massachusetts Department of Agricultural Resources Commissioner John Lebeaux announcing $1 million in grants to Massachusetts farms to implement practices that improve food safety within their operations. “Keeping the commonwealth’s workforce safe is important to both employees and employers as well as the greater community. These Safety Grants will provide training and education that helps promote safe and healthy conditions in the workplace.” ---Secretary of Labor and Workforce Development Rosalin Acosta announcing $800,000 in Workplace Safety Grants. All women have a fundamental right to access safe and aff ordable abortion. But on the Cape and Islands, women have been forced for years to make expensive trips off -Cape or out of state to access abortion services. This funding to Health Imperatives, which has locations on Martha’s Vineyard and Barnstable, breaks down barriers to care and gives women across the Cape and Islands access to this fundamental healthcare right.” ---Rep. Dylan Fernandez (D-Falmouth) on $4.1 million in grants awarded to reproductive health organizations including some on the Cape and Islands. “As the Lottery’s 50th anniversary celebration approaches the end, what better time to introduce the $50 ticket to begin our next 50 years? Our customers had been requesting this ticket for some time. After careful consideration, the Lottery has what we believe will provide them with the entirely new level of excitement they have been seeking.” ---State Treasurer Deb Goldberg, the chair of the Massachusetts State Lottery Commission, announcing the upcoming sale, beginning February 7th, of the Lottery’s fi rst $50 instant scratch ticket which will off er over $1 billion in total winnings and feature a $25 million instant win prize, the largest in Mass Lottery history. HOW LONG WAS LAST WEEK’S SESSION? Beacon Hill Roll Call tracks the length of time that the House and Senate were in session each week. Many legislators say that legislative sessions are only one aspect of the Legislature’s job and that a lot of important work is done outside of the House and Senate chambers. They note that their jobs also involve committee work, research, constituent work and other matters that are important to their districts. Critics say that the Legislature does not meet regularly or long enough to debate and vote in public view on the thousands of pieces of legislation that have been fi led. They note that the infrequency and brief length of sessions are misguided and lead to irresponsible late-night sessions and a mad rush to act on dozens of bills in the days immediately preceding the end of an annual session. During the week of December 2630, the House met for a total of 11 hours and 22 minutes and the Senate met for a total of seven hours and 53 minutes. Mon.

Page 18 THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, JANUARY 6, 2023 Revere resident named to UW-Madison Fall Dean's List MADISON, Wis (January 5, 2023) - The University of Wisconsin-Madison has recognized students named to the Dean's List for the fall semester of the 20212022 academic year. Erin Mahoney, College of Letters and Science, has achieved HOUSING | FROM Page 1 ly. The average monthly cost of a one-bedroom has increased by 83 percent or has gone from $1,136 to $2,189, while rent for a two-bedroom has risen from $1,494 to $2,635. Skwierawski also touched on the need to comply with the state’s 40B regulation that requires cities and towns to maintain 10 percent of housing stock as affordable. If a community fails to meet that 10 percent threshold, developers can apply to the state for 40B building permits which may allow them to bypass local zoning rules. Revere currently has 21,956 units of housing of which 2,196, or just 10 percent, are aff ordable. However, there are thousands of units in the pipeline, and once they are complete, the city’s percentthe Fall Dean's List. Students who achieve at a high level academically are recognized by the dean at the close of each semester. To be eligible for the Dean's List, students must complete a minimum of 12 graded degree credits in that age of aff ordable housing will dip below 10 percent, leaving Revere vulnerable to developers looking for relief from city zoning regulations in exchange for aff ordable units. The Department of Planning & Community Development has also looked at diff erent ideas and opportunities to develop more aff ordable housing. Skwierawski spoke about fi rst time home buyers’ loan programs, rental assistance, a housing stability offi ce and home improvement loans. The department has also looked at opportunities to build new affordable housing. According to Skwierawski, the Revere Housing Authority has a signifi cant amount of underutilized space that could be developed. He also mentioned partnering with the MBTA, which has large surface parking lots at the Beachmont and Wonderland Stasemester. Each university school or college sets its own GPA requirements for students to be eligible to receive the distinction. Most call the honor "dean's list", but some grant the "Dean's Honor List" and "Dean's High Honor List." tions. The MBTA has been a vocal proponent of transit-orientated housing, and Skwierawski suggested now may be the time for the state to put some money where its mouth is. The Aff ordable Housing Trust Fund board has also been looking at how other communities manage their trust funds. They discussed the possibility of surveys and focus groups to understand better what strategies to create aff ordable housing might be the best fi t for Revere. They also briefl y discussed the various ways other cities and towns have raised money for their trust funds. The board is scheduled to meet again on Jan. 11 in the City Council Chambers. There are two open seats on the board for residents who are interested in serving and who feel they can bring value and experience to the board.

Do you have any suggestions on what we can do to help keep him safe, and keep an eye on him from afar? Concerned Daughter Dear Concerned, Of course! There are a number of small adjustments and modifi cations you can make to your dad’s home to help protect him from falls and fi res, both of which cause thousands of injuries and deaths each year. Here are some tips to get you started. Eliminate tripping hazards: Rosemarie Ciampi - Agent Joe DiNuzzo - Broker Associate List your home, condominium or apartment with JRS. We’re with you from start to closing! 617-294-1041 Since falls are the leading cause of home injury among seniors, a good place to start is to pack away your dad’s throw rugs which are common tripping hazards or use carpet tacks or double-sided tape to secure them. You may also need to adjust your dad’s furniture so there are clear pathways to walk through and position any electrical or phone cords along walls and out of the way. For hardwood steps, consider attaching a nonslip tread to each one to provide traction and help him see the edge. And for added protection in the bathroom buy some nonskid rugs for the fl oors and use adhesive nonslip treads or a mat with rubber suction inside his tub or shower stall. Improve his lighting: Good lighting is essential for safe aging-in-place, so check the wattage ratings on your dad’s lamps and light fi xtures, and install the brightest bulbs allowed, and add supplementary lighting if necessary. You should also purchase some dusk to dawn nightlights for the bathroom and in the hallways that light up when the sun goes down. And mount some motion sensor lights outside the front and back doors and in the driveway that automatically come on when he comes and goes after dark. Get grab bars: These can signifi cantly reduce his risk of bathroom falls. Install them where he enters the shower or tub and on a wall inside the stall, but don’t use grab bars that attach with suction. Instead, have wallmounted bars put in by someone who can affi x them to the wall studs. It’s also best to choose bars whose surfaces are slightly textured and easier to grip. Ensure railings are stable: Wherever he has steps – stairways, entryways or basements – he needs sturdy railings. Ideally, they should be on both sides of the steps. Prevent cooking fi res: There are several aff ordable products you can purchase to help your dad prevent home cooking fi res like BurnerAlert discs that attach to a stove’s knob and will continuously blink or beep after the stove has been in use for a preset amount of time, and Ome smart knobs that can control a stove’s heating settings from an app. Or you can invest in a more expensive iGuardStove sensor that shuts the stove off when it doesn’t detect motion for fi ve minutes. Install smoke alarms: Install a smart smoke alarm in your dad’s house (buy one for each fl oor) that will alert him when smoke or carbon monoxide is detected. These smart devices will also send alerts to your phone to let you know when a problem is detected. Google Nest and First Alert both smart smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. Add fi re extinguishers: Get portable multipurpose fi re extinguishers for each level of your dad’s house and in the garage. Consider a medical alert: To ensure your dad’s safety and provide you some peace of mind, consider getting him a medical alert device that comes with a wearable SOS button that would allow him to call for help if he were to fall or need assistance.
