WARMING | SEE Page 16 Councillor seeks to regulate potential Amazon drone traffic over city By Barbara Taormina W hile many elected offi cials are looking at roadways to fi gure out the best type of reto look into an ordinance for Revere regulating the use of drones in the city. Serino explained that a resident had given him some information about drones in Texas and California and Amazon drone deliveries. Although drone fl ights are regulated by the state and federally by the Federal Aviation Administration, Serino wanted to investigate whether there was something the city could do through zoning to regulate drone use. “I want to get ahead of this,” said Serino. “I just want to ask the city solicitor what we can and can’t do.” Serino stressed that he is M ayor Brian Arrigo updated the City Council on the cost to build a new Revere High School, which, according to the mayor, could go as high as $500 million, which doesn’t include help from the Mass. School Building Assoc. (MSBA) contribution of $174 million, leaving the taxpayer burden potentially $324 million. The mayor said that the cost may be lower than expected depending on the footing of the Wonderland site. RICHARD SERINO Ward 6 Councillor pairs and improvements for residents, Ward 6 Councillor Richard Serino is looking at the skies. Serino filed a motion this week to ask the city solicitor not pro or anti drone – he just wants to be ready should problems arise. Councillor-at-Large Dan Rizzo agreed and said it is a good idea to get ahead of a potential problem. “We have two enormous Amazon distribution facilities. Do you know how many packages are delivered in Revere? We’re going to look like Ukraine when these drones start fl ying around,” said Rizzo. “I think we need to be proactive rather than reactive.” Ward 4 Councillor/City Council President Patrick Keefe said Revere already has some tight regulations for drones because the city is in the flight path. There are parts of the city where photographers can’t use drones because of those regulations. $3.75 GALLON We accept: MasterCard * Visa * & Discover Price Subject to Change without notice 100 Gal.

While coyote attacks on humans are so rare, they are a serious threat to other wildlife, including domestic pets. Coyotes see domestic pets like cats and dogs as a food source. Any other wildlife is considered the same by coyotes. While coyotes have been around for about one million years, according to experts, it is a fairly new phenomenon for them to be appearing in such large numbers in urban settings. Loss of habitat through construction projects continues to expand into coyotes’ natural habitat. As coyotes move closer to more densely populated areas, the animals are still on the hunt for food. They could be hunting for scraps of food or pets. Information on these points and others regarding coyotes will be presented at “Living with Coyotes” on January 26. The event is free of charge and there is no preregistration required. Like us on Facebook advocate newspaper Facebook.com/Advocate.news.ma to look far after the sun goes down to see a coyote in many communities in Massachusetts – including Malden. In an effort to spread more and better information about coyotes and how we can live with and handle interactions with them, the City of Malden and the Malden Police Department/Animal Control are hosting a special presentation on coyote behavior and concerns for anyone from the region interested in this topic. Residents from all three cities sharing a border with Malden in the Advocate readership area – Everett, Saugus, Revere – are welcome as well. “Living with Coyotes” will be hosted at the Forestdale K-8 School auditorium in Malden on Thursday, January 26, beginning at 6:30 p.m. The Forestdale School is located at 74 Sylvan St. Along with city officials, including Officer Kevin Alkins from Animal Control and others from the Malden PD, on hand will be MassWildlife Biologist Charlie Bird. Bird will be discussing coyote behavior and ways Malden residents can avoid and reduce any intrusive behaviors from these animals. A questionanswer session will be included nationwide. Coyotes, wildlife experts attest, can be found in every state in the nation, except Hawaii. There are an estimated 5.3 million coyotes in the United States, with up to 19 species and subspecies, according to the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service. As for a threat factor, coyotes traditionally are not a threat to humans. There has been only one coyote attack on a human reported in Massachusetts in the past 50 years: in July of 1998, on four-year-old Daniel Neal of Sandwich, Mass., while he was playing on his swing set. Nationwide, there are under 10 attacks on humans per year, despite the fi ve million-plus coyote number nationwide.

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, JANUARY 13, 2023 Page 9 Patriot girls win two of three after tourney loss By Greg Phipps T he Revere High School girls’ basketball team recovered Revere’s Belma Velic helped the girls to a win over Medford last Thursday with a 14-point eff ort. from their two losses at the inaugural Revere Holiday Tournament – and a subsequent loss to Lynn English – by winning two of three to improve to 3-6 on the season. The first of those victories came last Thursday at home with a 50-42 win over Greater Boston League (GBL) foe Medford. Center Belma Velic came up big with a 14-point performance to go along with fi ve rebounds and two blocked shots. She was aided by the eff orts of Haley Belloise (11 points and six assists), Shayna Smith (11 points and eight rebounds), and Bella Stamatopoulos (six points and two rebounds), who made some key hustle plays, according to Head Coach Chris Porrazzo. After being defeated by Lowell on Monday, the Patriot girls got back in the win column Tuesday by knocking off GBL opponent Chelsea, 60-18. Rocio Gonzalez emerged as the team’s top scorer by netting 15 points. Guard Lorena Martinez had a solid all-around game with eight points, six boards, fi ve steals and four assists. The Patriot girls played Malden on the road on Thursday and host Everett next Tuesday. Revere boys end losing stretch with win at Chelsea After losing a close one at Medford last Thursday, the Revere High School boys’ basketball team returned to the win column with a close 50-47 triumph at Chelsea on Tuesday. The win ended a three-game losing stretch for the Patriots. Senior captains Alejandro Hincapie (16 points) and Sal DeAngelis (14 points) put together strong performances to help lead the way. The two also combined for 13 rebounds. Ethan Day joined the act with eight points to go with fi ve rebounds and three blocked shots. Last Thursday, Revere dropped a close 58-54 decision at Medford. Domenic Boudreau was the top points-getter with 14. He also hauled down seven rebounds. DeAngelis (13 points) knocked home three three-pointers, and Hincapie contributed 11 points and fi ve assists. The 5-4 Patriots hosted Malden on Thursday night and aren’t scheduled to see action again until next Thursday when they travel to play Somerville. Tide boys’ co-op hockey returns to form to even record at three Everett senior captain David Saia notches his 100th career point against non-league host Timberlane By Joe McConnell I t was a much better and most memorable week for the Everett High School boys’ co-op hockey team. After dropping a heartbreaking 5-4 overtime decision to host East Bridgewater, 5-4, the Crimson Tide (2-2 in the Greater Boston League, 3-3 overall) bounced back Monday to double up non-league host Timberlane, 8-4. In that game, Everett senior captain David Saia was credited with a hat trick that resulted in his 100th career point, a signifi cant milestone of perseverance and determination. “(Saia) always gives us 100% eff ort in every game, while turning himself into a great leader and captain,” said coach Craig Richards. Saia’s hat trick helped pace the off ensive attack in the Timberlane game. Everett led throughout, taking a 3-1 lead after one and 6-4 heading into the third period. Revere’s Mykell Schovanec accounted for the fi rst goal on a solo eff ort. Frankie Annunziata then lit the lamp from Riley Constantine. Saia followed with his fi rst goal of the game assisted by Chris Cecca and Jacky Summers to close out the opening stanza. Jake Simpson got the first lamplighter of the second period setup by Austin Annunziata. Saia then recorded his second tally of the game from Andrew Crasco. Saia wasted no time to secure his historic goal from Michael Brandano and Constantine that once again completed the scoring in a period. Brandano produced the team’s seventh goal to begin the fi nal period, with Summers picking up his second assist of the game. Summers then fi nished off the off ensive explosion with a goal from Constantine. Aaron Al-Marayati was between the pipes throughout the fi rst two periods, before Ben Rosa took over the goaltending chores in the third. The team ended up outshooting Timberlane, 30-15. Both goalies also had considerable help from their defense. Richards specifi cally singled out the defensive contributions of Cam Couto and Mystic Valley’s Riya Tanivaki, while highlighting Constantine’s eff orts on off ense after assisting on three of his Like us on Facebook advocate newspaper Facebook.com/Advocate.news.ma team’s goals. Mystic Valley’s Liam Thompson also caught the attention of the coaching staff for his fi ne play up front. Rosa played the entire game in net against East Bridgewater. His teammates led, 4-2 after two periods, but the home team was able to tie up the game in the third, before winning it at the three-minute mark of the extra period. But Everett had more shots on goal, 20-15. “It was a battle,” said Richards after the game. “The entire team did a good job, and they moved the puck very well, but we just didn’t get the results we wanted.” DAVID SAIA Nets 100th point Austin Annunziata was credited with the fi rst goal from Lucas Deguire. Brandano poked one home assisted by Crasco. Simpson lit the lamp from Ollie Svenson and Cecca. Brandano then got his second goal of the game to complete the scoring for the locals from Simpson and Saia. The Everett co-op boys will be taking on host Lynn for the third time this season on Saturday at the Connery Rink, beginning at 7 p.m. They will then look to avenge an earlier loss to the Highlanders in Somerville on Wednesday, Jan. 18, at 5:30 p.m.

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, JANUARY 13, 2023 Page 11 Decluttering? BBB Tips for Selling Your Used Items Online he start of a new year is a great time to clean out your home and organize your living spaces. But what should you do with the gently used clothing, furniture, home items or electronics that you aren’t using anymore? Fortunately, online marketplaces, such as Craigslist, Facebook Marketplace, eBay and Poshmark, make it easy to sell without even leaving your home. That said, there are a few perils to selling used items online. To avoid the dangers and to successfully make sales, the Better Business Bureau (BBB) recommends the following tips. How to stay safe when making online sales • Choose an appropriate platform. Nerdwallet recommends that “before you sell stuff online to make extra money, determine the ideal venue for your goods.” There are dozens of online marketplaces to choose from, but many of them focus on a specifi c kind of used goods, such as electronics or designer clothing. Before you create an account with a marketplace, make sure it is a good fit for the kind of goods you want to sell. • Know the worth of your items and price appropriately. To determine the value of an item you want to sell, Consumer Reports suggests, search for similar items on the site where you plan to list. On auction sites, look at completed sales and pay attention to the selling price rather than the minimum bid price. If you are selling an item that was never used and is still in its original packaging, remember that technically it is still coming to the buyer secondhand, so you’ll need to charge a little less than the original retail value if you want to make a sale. • Get appraisals for high value items. If you are selling jewelry made with precious metals or stones, get an offi cial appraisal before you list or sell the items. Keep in mind that jewelers might give you a lower price quote as they intend to make profi t on a resale. If you are in possession of an antique or artwork that is worth over a thousand dollars, consider getting a written opinion on the item’s worth from a professional appraiser. This will give you a better idea of the price you should set and how much insurance you need to cover the sale. • Make a quality listing. Without a good listing, you may not sell your item. NBC News advisT es putting care into the photos you take of an item. Make sure the images are clear and accurately show the item’s color, form and other key details. You’ll also want to include specific measurements and detailed written descriptions that inform buyers of any fl aws the item might have, no matter how small. Make it clear that the price you set takes the fl aws into account. Finally, use search engine words in your item description that accurately describe the item, its aesthetic and its use to attract buyers who are actively looking for what you are selling. • Prepare items for sale. Before you pack your item for shipping, clean it thoroughly. If you are planning on selling multiple items online and want to keep buyers coming back, put some love into your packaging as well. Wrapping the item in tissue paper and including a thank you note can go a long way towards creating a returning customer. • Understand the fees. Each online marketplace has its own set of fees, which can vary quite a bit from platform to platform. Before you sign up, take some time to read the fi ne print and understand whether you’ll pay a percentage of your sale, a fl at rate or both and how the fees are collected. In addition, fi nd out how many sales each platform allows you to make each month. • Consider swapping or donating used items. If you decide not to sell an item, consider donating it or giving it away to someone who needs it. Several online sites allow you to give things away to someone who needs them for free, to lend and borrow items from others in your community and to even trade items instead of selling them for cash. Check out this list of ways to swap used items from nonprofit Green America: https://www.greenamerica. org/green-living/fi nding-useditems-online • Watch out for shady buyers. Con artists often pose as buyers in scams. Sometimes they off er to overpay for an item, but that’s not their only tactic. Beware of buyers who ask you to make transactions outside of the selling platform or those who ask for personal information, such as your banking information. • Be extra cautious when making local sales. Some platforms allow you to meet up with people in your local area to exchange your item for cash in person. While this can be an eff ective way to sell big items ~ LETTER-TO-THE-EDITOR ~ Revere’s Senior Center and the Cobra effect Dear Mayor Arrigo, Is (Councillor-at-Large) Marc Silvestri’s plan likely to pass? Wondering if you’ve ever heard of “the Cobra eff ect”? Basically, it’s a tale of perverse incentive. In India under the British, there were too many cobras on the streets so they off ered to pay people to bring in cobras. This initially lowered the number of cobras but then of course people started growing them to get the payouts. They were left with more cobras than ever before. That’s not specifi cally to equate the homeless to that situation, but you will be incentivizing that lifestyle for those potentially on the edge who might otherwise have to work out garnering and gaining premises. That becomes less of a factor if there’s always a place to rest one’s head at night, respective of having gainfully accrued the work and eff ort and fi - nance to do same. Signed, Randall Bock, MD Revere, MA BBB TIPS: Five Resolutions for a Fraud-Free New Year T he loss of money and personal information, and perseverance of scammers continue with online purchase scams as the riskiest of scams. The Better Business Bureau (BBB) recommends adding a few precautionary steps to the New Year's resolution list, along with the weight loss and fi nancial goals, to help make the upcoming days and months fraud-free. • I resolve to be cautious with email. Be wary of unsolicited emails from a person or a company. Remember, scammers can make emails look like they are from a legitimate business, government agency or reputable organization (even BBB!). Never click on links or open attachments in unsolicited emails. • I resolve to never send money to strangers. If you haven’t met a person face-to-face, don’t send them money. This is especially true if the person asks you to transfer funds using a prepaid debit card or CashApp. Monand avoid marketplace fees, use caution when meeting up with strangers. Don’t be quick to give them your home address; instead ask buyers to meet you in a safe place, such as outside your local police department. Never meet up alone with a buyer you don’t know. Always bring your partner or a friend to make the transaction. • Always protect your personal information. As you sell items online, keep your sensitive personal information under lock and key. Avoid communicating with buyers outside of the online platform you are using to make the sale and don’t give out your home address, phone number or email address. For more information see BBB’s New Year’s guide: https:// www.bbb.org/all/new-year-sguide ey sent to strangers in this way is untraceable, and once it is sent, there’s no getting it back. Scammers will try to trick you into panicking – so before making a move, think the situation through. Don’t fall for it! • I resolve to do research before making online payments and purchases. When shopping online, or if asked to make a payment online, research the retailer before entering payment information. Ask: Is this a person or business I know and trust? Do they have a working customer service number? Where is the company physically located? Would I be making payments through a secure server (https://....com)? Have I checked to see if others have complained? • I resolve to use my best judgment when sharing my personal information. Sharing sensitive personal information with scammers opens the door to identity theft. Never share fi nancial information, birthdate, address, Social Security/Social Insurance number or Medicare number with an unsolicited caller. • I resolve to be social media smart. Make use of privacy settings on social media and only connect with people you actually know. Be careful about including personal information in your profi le and never reveal your address and other sensitive information – even in a “fun” quiz. Scammers might use this information to make themselves pass as a friend or a relative and earn your trust. Also, be careful when buying products that you saw on social media.

Keefe and Vice-President McKenna, Daniel Rizzo, Ricky Serino, Marc Silvestri, Gerry Visconti, and Anthony Zambuto. “Life is about finding common ground,” he said. “It’s okay to disagree but it doesn’t mean we have to be foes.” “Councillors’ goals will always be aligned if Revere comes fi rst,” said Keefe who is in his second term as Ward 4 councilor and is active in many local organizations such as Revere Pop Warner, Revere Youth Baseball and softball. He also serves as treasurer for the Revere Democratic City Committee. After being sworn in by Melnick, McKenna also had people to thank as well. “They call me “Mum” McKenna on this council,” she said. “I want to thank my fellow councilors humbly for the vote of confi dence to be vice president of this council. And I want to thank my constituents for putting me on the council.” McKenna grew up in Beachmont. She taught at Revere High School for 32 years. She founded the Revere Beautifi cation Committee and the Beachmont Improvement Committee. ~ GUEST COMMENTARY ~ Questioning Whether Revere Can Afford a New High School Isn’t Really the Question to be Asked By Sal Giarratani JOB WELL DONE: Newly-elected City Council President Patrick Keefe presents a gavel plaque commemorating his service as the 2022 Council President to Gerry Visconti on Monday evening.      T he proposed cost of building new high schools is always a big issue for homeowners and renters in any community. The longer communities wait, the higher the costs but as last week’s letter writer suggests, the approximate just under $500 million price tag could be a bridge too far for many city taxpayers to bear. Is it possible to put off construction of a new high school? Can the existing school structure be modifi ed, enlarged, remodeled providing additional space for student learning? I certainly hope City Hall and Revere Public Schools have done their due diligence. I am sure they have. As far as the seniors in this                         city are concerned, perhaps it is time to think about a new senior center. However, what I dislike is pitting the city’s children against the city’s senior population. Both demographics have a right to be served. Yes, it will cost taxpayers more money but that is the price to be made when we are citizens of a community. When it comes to spending money, I am a conservative. Most of us are. However, there are things a city needs to strive for going into the future and one of those things is educating our young people today growing into tomorrow’s leaders, tomorrow’s elected offi cials and tomorrow’s taxpayers too. The idea that homeowners who are childless or whose children have grown up get a dispensation because they don’t need public schools getting a tax break sounds good until you apply this principle elsewhere in city fi nances. Should younger resident taxpayers get a tax credit since they aren’t old and in need of a new senior center? Citizens of Revere like citizens everywhere else are in compact with each other to build up their communities. It is the price we pay to live together wherever we choose. My bottom line, however? It behooves our elected offi cials to be open and frank with citizens. Communication between the people and their voices in government needs always to be transparent. Moving forward together is always better than kicking and screaming into the future. Government is our business. We should all stay involved. That is the role of the people. Our governors on the other hand need to keep everyone in the loop and explain why every action needs to be taken which even could be costly but still necessary.

We wish to thank all for the eff ort put forward to ensure that this community-driven project was included in the Community Project earmarks.” “Addressing the legacy of environmental racism is an important part of our response to climate change,” said Malden Mayor Gary Christenson, “and that is what we are doing with the Malden River Works project. It represents a new planning approach for Malden that focuses on elevating the voices of marginalized community members to build a climate-resilient park on the Malden River. The funding secured by our federal delegation will play an important role in the eventual success of Malden River Works.” Revere: Riverside Climate Resiliency Project ($1,977,220) The funding will alleviate current conditions and prepare the community for the impact of worsening risks of climate change and sea-level rise. It expands mitigation and adaptation eff orts in the RiverFront area in Revere. “As a community located outside the shelter of Boston Harbor we get the brunt of increasingly intense winter storms,” said Revere Mayor Brian Arrigo. “This funding will help us manage coastal fl ooding in our Riverfront neighborhood.” “The frequent fl ooding of the Riverside neighborhood due to sea level rise has reached a critical juncture,” said Revere activist Loretta LaCentra. “Our worstcase scenario has become a common event as we dread reports of upcoming fl ooding and King Tides. We need immediate attention and remediation to address the multiple fl ooding events we experience annually. We cannot wait any longer.” Everett: Gateway Park Urban Forest/Wetland Restoration ($750,000) This funding will help support the restoration of a degraded 14acre waterfront parcel of land and create a rare public open space for low-income Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) residents in the environmental justice community of Everett.

MyRWA: Cooling Urban Heat Islands through Enhancing Urban Forests in Greater Boston’s Mystic River Watershed ($400,000) This funding will help mitigate the dangers of climate-driven extreme heat in vulnerable environmental justice communities, including Everett, Chelsea and East Boston. The program will support the implementation of local urban forestry plans (including the planting of 750 trees), while training youths, reentry citizens and others to perform the horticulture activities needed to establish and maintain urban trees. “This funding allows us to partner with communities to cool off some of the hottest neighborhoods in our watershed that currently have very few parks, trees, or other cooling amenities,” said MyRWA Deputy Director for Projects David Queeley. “These same neighborhoods are where many low-income BIPOC residents live due to past redlining practices and crushingly high housing prices elsewhere. Helping vulnerable residents stay safe lowers hospitalization rates and medical costs. If we can help cool off the hottest streets, or even whole neighborhoods, why wouldn’t we?” Mystic River Watershed at a Glance The 76-square-mile Mystic River Watershed stretches from Reading through the northern shoreline of Boston Harbor to Revere. It is one of New England’s most urbanized watersheds. The seven-mile Mystic River and its tributaries represented an early economic engine for colonial Boston; 10 shipyards, tide-driven mills, brickyards and tanneries along both banks of the river brought both wealth and pollution. In the 1960s, the Amelia Earhart Dam transformed much of the river into a freshwater impoundment, while construction of Interstate 93 fi lled in wetlands and dramatically changed the river’s course. Since then, many former industrial sites have been cleaned up and redeveloped into new commercial areas and residential communities. The Mystic is facing growing climate-related challenges: coastal and stormwater fl ooding, extreme storms, heat, drought and unpredictable seasonal weather. The watershed is relatively low-lying and extensively developed, making it prone to both freshwater and coastal fl ooding. Its 21 municipalities are home to 600,000 residents, including many who are disproportionately vulnerable to extreme weather: environmental justice communities, new Americans, residents of color, elders, low-income residents and employees, people living with disabilities and English-language learners. 5.

PO Box 490407, Everett, MA 02149 THE HOUSE AND SENATE: Last week was full of activity on Beacon Hill. The Legislature approved and sent to then-Gov. Charlie Baker, before his term was up, several bills passed on voice votes, without roll calls, prior to the end of the 2021-2022 session on Tuesday, January 3. The Legislature convened the 2023-2024 session on Wednesday, January 4. Much of the day’s activities were ceremonial including the swearing-in of state senators and representatives. The only roll call votes were on the election of a speaker of the House and Senate president. The day also featured a farewell speech by outgoing Gov. Charlie Baker. One senator and two representatives were not present at the opening session. Beacon Hill Roll Call asked each one why they were absent. Rep. Patricia Haddad (D-Somerset) said she was in the emergency room with her husband. Rep. Erica Uyterhoeven (DSomerville) said she was ill. A spokesman for Sen. Mike Rush (D-Boston) said that Rush had a minor medical issue. On Thursday, January 5, newly elected Gov. Maura Healey and Lt. Gov. Kim Driscoll were sworn into offi ce. HOUSE RE-ELECTS MARIANO AS SPEAKER House 131-25, re-elected Rep. Ron Mariano (D-Quincy) as speaker of the House. Rep. Bradley Jones (R-North Reading) was re-elected as the GOP minority leader. Here’s how local representatives voted: Rep. Jessica Giannino Voted for Mariano Rep. Jeff Turco Voted for Mariano SENATE RE-ELECTS SPILKA AS SENATE PRESIDENT Senate 36-3, re-elected Sen. Karen Spilka (D-Ashland) as Senate President. Sen. Bruce Tarr (R-Gloucester) was re-elected as the GOP Minority Leader. Here’s how local senators voted: Sen. Lydia Edwards Voted for Spilka ALSO UP ON BEACON HILL REDUCED TRAFFIC FATALITIES AND PROTECT PEDESTRIANS AND BICYCLISTS (H 5103) – Gov. Baker signed into law a bill that would protect vulnerable road users which includes pedestrians, construction workers, emergency responders bicyclists, skateboarders, roller skaters and wheelchair users. A key provision requires vehicle drivers, when passing a vulnerable user, to pass at a safe distance of not less than 4 feet. Other provisions include establishing a process to request the lowering of the default speed limit to 25 mph on state highways in a community; clarifying the process for modifying special limits that apply on some roads; requiring higher-visibility mirrors and lateral sideguards on certain state-owned, stateoperated and state-contracted trucks; creating a uniform reporting tool for crashes involving a pedestrian or cyclist; and requiring bicyclists to have red rear lights. “This bill refl ects over 10 years of collaborative effort among people who care about road safety,” said sponsor Sen. Will Brownsberger (D-Belmont). “I’m so glad we could get it to governor’s desk again. I feel the fi nal bill is as strong as what we originally submitted. It will save lives on the roads.” THEFT OF CATALYTIC CONVERTERS (S 3169) – Gov. Baker signed into law legislation 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 gases. The measure requires the buyer to keep records of each converter purchased, 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. “Catalytic theft is an epidemic,” said House sponsor Rep. Steve Howitt (R-Seekonk). “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. I’m very pleased that the House and Senate worked together for this timely and important bill that benefi ts all the citizens of the commonwealth.” “Many scrapyards and blackmarket 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.” PREGNANT AND POSTPARTUM (S 2731) – Gov. Baker signed into law a bill that would ensure that pregnant and postpartum mothers get necessary and potentially life-saving health care by extending MassHealth insurance coverage to 12 months after pregnancy. MassHealth is the state’s Medicaid program that provides health care for low-income and disabled persons. Supporters said that according to a recent report released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the number of women identifi ed as having died of maternal causes in the United States climbed from 658 in 2018 to 861 in 2020, with the maternal death rate for Black women reaching an alarming 55.3 deaths per 100,000 live births. “I am proud that Massachusetts has taken another step to combat inequities in maternal health,” said Sen. Joan Lovely (DSalem), the lead Senate sponsor of the measure. “By extending postpartum healthcare coverage to a full year, parents will be able to access vital physical and behavioral health resources that will decrease mortality and severe morbidity and improve the overall health of parent and child.” PROHIBIT REVOCATION OF PROFESSIONAL LICENSES (H 5195) – The House and Senate on November 21, approved and sent to then-Gov. Baker legislation that would repeal a current state law which creates professional licensure consequences for anyone who defaults on their student loan. Under current law, a borrower’s state-issued professional or occupational certificate, registration or license can be suspended, revoked or canceled if the borrower is in default on an education loan. “This draconian approach prevents an individual from access to the profession for which he or she has trained and has the perverse result of further hindering their ability to earn a living and making it more diffi cult to make loan payments,” said co-sponsor Rep. Kate Lipper-Garabedian (D-Melrose). “And as families work to recover from the fi nancial fallout of the pandemic, the last thing the state should do is deny them access to their professional pursuits because of student loan defaults.” Baker proposed an amendment to the bill on December 1. Baker’s amendment would allow the Division of Banks to consider student loan defaults in order to ensure that the DiviBEACON | SEE Page 16

Page 16 THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, JANUARY 13, 2023 WARMING | FROM Page 1 “We will make sure there is no impact to senior center operations. There will be cleaning crews and on-site security,” said Arrigo, who added, “If people feel uncomfortable and it doesn’t work, we’ll scrap the program.” But that did little to appease seniors, who feel they are losing the only place in the city where they feel safe and secure and where they are not at risk for Covid and other diseases. Newly elected City Council President Patrick Keefe had to bang his gavel several times to call for order among the audience members who continued to call out questions about the program. One woman asked if those using the warming center will need to show proof that they’ve been vaccinated. “We’re a vulnerable group to have people at the senior center who aren’t vaccinated,” she said. “We have people with underlying conditions. We care about the homeless, but we were hoping they could have some other place where there’s not seniors. I don’t know these people,” she said. Buck explained that Housing Families, a large nonprofi t agency that will be managing the warming center, will be cleaning and disinfecting the center every morning. They will also monitor people using the center and BEACON | FROM Page 14 sion will retain the discretion it has always applied when assessing an applicant’s fi tness to provide consumer fi nancial services to prospective borrowers. “Precluding the Division of Banks from reviewing credit reports as part of its evaluation of an individual’s fi nancial responsibility for a fi nancial services license could ultimately result in harm to consumers,” said Baker. The House and Senate had more than a month to act on the governor’s amendment but did ot do so.. As a result, the bill died on January 3, the fi nal day of the 2021-2022 session. “This is a common-sense bill that not only helps a student practice their profession but it is also likely to help a student earn enough money to pay off any outstanding student debt,” said co-sponsor Sen. Jamie Eldridge (D-Acton). “I was hoping the bill would make it to the governor’s desk, and wish he had not fi led an amendment to the alreadypassed bill.” EXPAND CIVIL SERVICE OPTION FOR CITIES AND TOWNS (S 1661) – The House and Senate both approved a bill that would allow legislative governing bodies of cities and towns the option to expand the defi - use rapid Covid tests when they feel someone may present a risk of spreading the virus. Buck also reminded seniors that they have more of a risk of contracting covid at supermarkets, doctors’ offi ces and other indoor public environments. Reservoir Avenue resident Frank Schettino questioned the hours of the center, which will be 7:00 p.m. to 7:00 a.m. “What do we do after that?” asked Schettino. “We don’t want to put them out in the cold again. My gut feeling is they are going to be putting tents outside.” Schettino also said seniors feel the center would never be completely cleaned. “If we don’t do something we’re going to lose a lot of people at the elderly center,” added Schettino. “That’s all we have left. We have nothing against the homeless – we just wish it was another location.” Although Arrigo and Buck stressed the warming center is not a shelter and will not have beds or cots, and no food will be served, Senior Center member Joann Woods said people are sleeping there at night. Woods suggested that the city fi nd somewhere other than the senior center for the program. Several city councillors also felt the city should look at different sites. “We can make a warming center wherever we want. This is our city; we can put it wherever we nition of local residency for civil service hiring preference to include anyone who received a high school diploma from a school in that city or town. Neither branch gave the measure fi nal approval. “This legislation could aid municipalities in their eff orts to draw from a diverse pool of applicants for police and fi re department jobs, and provide additional career opportunities for students who become part of a local community by attending and graduating from its high school,” said sponsor Sen. Will Brownsberger (D-Belmont) who plans to refi le the bill in the 2023-2024 session. Supporters gave an example that a student enrolled in the METCO program who graduated from high school in another city or town could be considered a local resident for civil service purposes if the city council or town meeting voted to expand the residency defi nition under the proposed legislation. QUOTABLE QUOTES – Excerpts from Gov. Maura Healey’s inaugural speech “I thank Gov. Baker, who has led this commonwealth with a steady hand. He has governed with integrity and care—eager to study problems and work together on solutions. The examCONCERNED CONSTITUENTS: Local seniors were in attendance at Monday evening’s City Council meeting to express their concerns about the Rossetti-Cowan Senior Center being used as a warming center for homeless individuals. (Advocate photo) want. I don’t understand why we’re so reluctant to look at an alternative site,” said Councillorat-Large Dan Rizzo, who made a motion that the city look at the feasibility of other sites. Rizzo suggested the police station community room and the American Legion as possible options. The council approved that motion. The council also called for the city to hold another forum with seniors to share more information about the program. Councillor-at-Large Marc Silvestri made a passionate statement in favor of the warming ple he set for eight years was in the best traditions of public service, and it now becomes his legacy. Gov. Baker, I thank you, and our state thanks you.” “My grandparents met on the fi shing docks in a Gloucester summer. She was in nursing school; he worked at the GE factory. Later, when I was to be born at a naval hospital in Maryland, they worried that I wasn’t starting my life on Massachusetts soil. So she dug up a little dirt from the woodlot, caught a plane, sneaked into the hospital room, and put the little bag under the delivery table.” “Our state Constitution recognized our natural and essential rights and declared them to the world. The people of Massachusetts have always believed in protecting these rights, and dedicating them to a higher purpose. We were the fi rst to guarantee that health care is universal, and twenty years ago now, that love is, too. It is in that spirit of common humanity that I stand before you today, representing another historic fi rst.” “The strength of Massachusetts is its families. And they sorely need our help. Our state has some of the highest childcare costs in the country. Our care workers don’t make a livable wage. So today, let us center. Silvestri worked with homeless people on the emergency response team during the height of pandemic. He told the audience they are not bad people and they are only looking for a place to stay warm and stay alive. Silvestri said he was not afraid of losing votes for his support of a program meant to keep people from dying in the streets of exposure. Councillor-at-Large Anthony Zambuto called the warming center program a “noble goal” but added that he would like to see better communication bepledge to be the fi rst state to solve the childcare crisis. Let’s fi - nally pass legislation in line with Common Start to make sure every family pays what they can afford, and that care workers are paid what they deserve.” “But I’m even more excited about tomorrow. Because tomorrow we get to work. We get to work in the greatest state, for the greatest people, at a moment when we can make the greatest diff erence—now and for a generation to come. So with great optimism and pride, I thank you all, and now let’s come together and get this done. God bless you, and God bless this commonwealth.” 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 legistween the city and the seniors about the center. “It’s the right thing to do although I might have wanted it to be in a diff erent place,” said Zambuto. Councillor-at-Large Gerry Visconti said it is important to keep in mind that the program is to provide a temporary shelter. Visconti and other councillors felt that if seniors see the program up and running for a couple of weeks, they would see steps have been taken to address all of their concerns. “As long as their minds are at ease, we’re at ease,” he said. lation 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.

My 71-year-old uncle, who’s divorced with no children, has terminal cancer. He’s asked me to take care of his aff airs so I would like to fi nd out what I need to do after he passes away. Unsure Nephew Dear Unsure, I’m very sorry to hear about your uncle. The death of a loved of can bring about a host of diff erent tasks and responsibilities. Here’s a list of some things you can do now, and after his death, that can help keep a sad event from becoming even more diffi cult. Before Death Occurs There are several tasks you can do now while your uncle is still living that will make things easier for you after he dies. For starters, fi nd out where he keeps all his important papers like his trust and/or will (also make sure it’s updated), birth certificate, Social Security information, life-insurance policies, military discharge papers, fi nancial documents, key or combination to a safe deposit box or a home safe. Also make a list of his digital assets (including usernames and passwords) like his email account, online banking accounts, social media accounts, etc. If your uncle doesn’t have an adNorma Capuano Parziale 617-590-9143 Joe DiNuzzo 617-680-7610 vanced directive, help him make one (see CaringInfo.org for free state-specifi c forms and instructions). An advanced directive includes a living will that specifi es his end-of-life medical treatments and appoints a health-care proxy to make medical decisions if he becomes incapacitated. In addition, you should also make a do-not-resuscitate (DNR) order. Your uncle’s doctor can help you with this. You should also pre-arrange his funeral, memorial service, and burial or cremation. Immediately After Death Once your uncle dies, you’ll need to get a legal pronouncement of death. If no doctor is present, you’ll need to contact someone to do this. If he dies at home under hospice care, call the hospice nurse, who can declare his death and help facilitate the transport of the body. If he dies at home without hospice care, call your uncle’s doctor. You’ll then need to call the funeral home, mortuary or crematorium to pick up the body. If your uncle is an organ or tissue donor, contact the funeral home or the county coroner immediately. Within a Few Days If funeral plans were not pre-arranged, you’ll need to make arrangements and prepare an obituary. If your uncle was in the military or belonged to a fraternal or religious group, you should contact those organizations too, because they may have burial benefi ts or conduct funeral services. You should also notify family members, close friends and his employer if he was still working, and make sure his home is secured. Up to 10 Days After Death To wind down your uncle’s fi - nancial aff airs, you’ll need to get multiple copies of his death certificate, which are typically ordered by the funeral home. If you’re the executor of your uncle’s estate, take his will to the appropriate county or city offi ce to have it accepted for probate. And open a bank account for your uncle’s estate to pay bills, including taxes, funeral costs, etc. You also need to contact your uncle’s estate attorney if he has one; tax preparer to see if estate or fi nal income taxes should be fi led; fi nancial advisor for information on fi nancial holdings; life insurance agent to get claim forms; his bank to locate and close accounts; and Social Security, the VA (if he’s a veteran) and other agencies that provided benefi ts in order to stop payments. You should also cancel his credit cards, delete or memorialize his social media accounts and, if relevant, stop household services like utilities, mail, etc. His home and personal belonging will also need to be dealt with in the coming weeks. Send your senior questions to: Savvy Senior, P.O. Box 5443, Norman, OK 73070, or visit SavvySenior. org. Jim Miller is a contributor to the NBC Today show and author of “The Savvy Senior” book.
