However, Mayor Brian Arrigo said fi scal year 2017 garnered the most Free Cash collectively between the city’s General Fund and Water/Sewer Enterprise Fund. Free Cash is defi ned as money that is leftover after the city has paid its operating expenses combined with actual revenues that exceeded budgeted revenues, according to Arrigo. The amount of Free Cash in the Water/Sewer Enterprise Fund is also higher than last year’s figure with $3,017,848 certifi ed in fi scal year 2020 compared to the $2,858,970 that was certifi ed for fi scal year 2019. According to city ordinance, a percentage of both General Fund and Enterprise Fund Free Cash will be transferred to the respective stabilization and capital improvement trust funds. Councillor-at-Large George Rotondo asked Arrigo if it was indeed the largest Free Cash amount in the city’s history and congratulated him on that achievement. “It’s a time to be proud,” said City Council President Patrick Keefe, adding that some of the money will be used to reduce taxes and water/sewer rates. “A large amount of money has been raised, despite budgetary constraints.” Arrigo said its great news and he will soon come before the council with a capital improvement plan. Arrigo also said the money will be used for street/sidewalk improvements, schools and varsity sports. “The economy is healthy,” Arrigo said, adding that he’s fortunate to lead the city. “I hope to give back to the taxpayers.” Arrigo said he intends to get a low interest rate, which speaks volumes of budget management. City Auditor Richard Viscay attributed the good news to a multitude of factors, including sound financial management, hard work, setting aside reserves, and collective bargaining. —Tara Vocino may be reached at printjournalist1@gmail.com.

Page 2 THE REVERE ADVOCATE – Friday, February 14, 2020 Council dedicates plaque honoring late RevereTV’s Rick Promise at city hall Councilors recall his humbleness, quiet nature, friendship and professionalism By Tara Vocino A memorial plaque was dedicated beside the spot where Rick Promise fi lmed City Council meetings for decades on Monday night in the City Council Chambers. The plaque reads: “In Honor Of Richard ‘Rick’ Promise – The Voice Behind – ‘Before the Council’ – United States Navy – Sonar Technician Submarine – Petty Offi cer 3rd Class – 1951–2019.” City Council Vice President Ira Novoselsky, who put forth the motion, said Promise, 68, went beyond the call of duty, videotaping nearly every city event for RevereTV, even in poor health. Promise died on Nov. 21, 2019. “It’s a great loss,” Novoselsky said. “The city will miss him.” Ward 3 Councillor Arthur Guinasso said Promise was a private RevereTV Executive Director Robert Dunbar and RevereTV Board Chairman Mark Ferrante unveil a sign that reads: “In Honor Of Richard ‘Rick’ Promise – The Voice Behind – ‘Before the Council’ – United States Navy – Sonar Technician Submarine – Petty Offi - cer 3rd Class – 1951–2019.” (Advocate photos by Tara Vocino) person and never alluded to any ailment that he might have had. “The last time he was here in the Chambers, I knew something drastically was wrong when he could barely walk up the stairwell,” Guinasso said. “But he put MassPort Noise Complaint Line: 617-561-3333 in his full dedication nevertheless.” Councillor-at-Large Anthony Zambuto called Promise a wonderful Christian man who never missed an event at “his home” at the City Council Chambers in his 20-year tenure. “He never complained about his wife’s Alzheimer’s,” Zambuto said. “He was a fantastic employee and hounded you in a nice way to do videos [for cable television].” Councillor-at-Large Gerry Visconti said of Promise that he was genuine. “Not only was he always here, but he was always at the Senior Center,” Visconti said.

Ward 1 Councillor Joanne McKenna said that although her Beachmont constituent was in pain, he always personally thanked her for bettering his neighborhood. “RevereTV lost two people this year, including Promise and Morris Morris – huge losses to the city,” McKenna said. “And thanks to the both of them for giving so much of themselves to the city of Revere.” Councillor-at-Large Steven Morabito said that he became friends with Promise when he interviewed him on cable television. “A lot of people never saw him, because he was behind the camera,” Morabito said. “But even though he was a quiet guy, he was so involved in our community and a kindhearted man.” Councillor-at-Large Jessica Giannino said there’s a void in the Chambers without Promise, and although he was on the sidelines, he did things as a labor of love. “He was incredibly kind and sweet,” she said. City Council President Patrick Keefe recognized Promise as a consummate professional. Promise’s family wasn’t present for the dedication. —Tara Vocino may be reached at printjournalist1@gmail.com.

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – Friday, February 14, 2020 Page 3 DEP’s decision on Wheelabrator’s emission control plan irks Rep. Vincent and Saugus selectmen By Mark E. Vogler T he state Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) has determined that Wheelabrator Saugus, Inc.’s Emission Control Plan for its trash-to-energy plant on Route 107 is “technically complete” and complies with air pollution control regulations. But state Rep. RoseLee Vincent, D-Revere, and members of the Saugus Board of Selectmen this week expressed great dismay about this week’s release of a document that they claim sends a missed message on what Wheelabrator will be allowed in Nitrogen oxides (NOx) emissions. Under the plan released on Tuesday, it appears that the DEP’s emission standards are more stringent by denying Wheelabrator’s request to increase the levels of Nitrogen oxides the plant can emit. But another provision allows the company to buy Emission Reduction Credits (ERCs) in order to meet more stringent standards. Nitrogen oxides are poisonous and highly reactive gases that can contribute to respiratory and heart problems. “I am deeply, deeply disturbed, and quite frankly outraged, that MassDEP is once again failing to protect the people of my district as they always do when it comes to this dinosaur of an incinerator,” Vincent told The Advocate. “The DEP asserts that they are requiring Wheelabrator Saugus to meet the 150 particles-permillion emission limit for Nitrogen Oxides (NOx). However, they are allowing this to be done by letting the company purchase ‘Emission Reduction Credits’ from other municipal waste combustors in the Commonwealth that meet and exceed today’s standards,” said Vincent, whose 16th Suff olk District includes two Saugus precincts -- including Precinct 10, where the incinerator on Route 107 is located. “So, essentially, Wheelabrator Saugus can discharge higher than acceptable emissions into the air that we breathe, as long as they are paying for these socalled credits. This is reprehensible and beyond unacceptable,” she said, “Sadly, I am not surprised that the MassDEP did not have the fortitude to stand up and force Wheelabrator to comply in a reasonable manner. This agency has a consistent track record of failing in its core mission to protect the people who live in Wheelabrator Saugus’ shadow.” Wheelabrator “reviewing details” of DEP decision Wheelabrator officials had little to say about the plan approved by the DEP. “We received MassDEP’s approval of our Emissions Control Plan Tuesday and we are in the process of reviewing its details,” Wheelabrator Director of Communications & Community Engagement Michelle Nadeau said in a brief statement to the newspaper. Vincent was one of 40 residents -- mostly from Saugus and Revere -- who testifi ed during a three-hour hearing in the Saugus High School auditorium last October on DEP’s draft approval of Wheelabrator’s ECP. All those speakers -- mostly from Revere and Saugus -- opposed the plan. Many of them expressed concerns about the Emission Reduction Credits Selectman Debra Panetta spoke out this week about what she saw as a lack of fairness to residents throughout the area. “The DEP is requiring Wheelabrator to adhere to the 150 PPM, but they will allow Wheelabrator to buy credits from more efficient incinerators to make up the diff erence in their Saugus plant's inefficiencies,” Panetta said. “This means, the people of Saugus, Revere, and Lynn will have to live with the higher nitrogen oxide levels, which will negatively impact our health and the health of our families. This isn't fair or just. The health and well-being of our residents should be of the utmost priority for the DEP,” she said. “If all the other incinerators in Massachusetts can meet this requirement, so should Wheelabrator Saugus. Just because this is the oldest incinerator in the nation doesn't mean that it shouldn't be held to the same standards as all other incinerators.” Selectman Corinne Riley said she “couldn't be more disappointed in the MassDEP decision” which allows Wheelabrator to exceed the 150 ppm nitrous oxide emission standard. “I, along with dozens of other residents from Saugus and Revere, spoke against allowing this at the October DEP hearing at the high school. The concerns of every speaker except Wheelabrator’s representative have been ignored by the MassDEP,” Riley said. “This is just not a Precinct 10 issue; all residents of Saugus and surrounding communities will be adversely aff ected by this decision. I will do everything I can to fi ght this decision.” Selectman Jeffrey Cicolini said he was “saddened” about the DEP’s decision that allowed Wheelabrator to purchase credits, but not require the capital investments be made in the plant to lower the NOx level. “The MDEP exists to protect the health and ensure the safety and well-being of our residents and those of surrounding communities,” Cicolini said. “I fi nd it hard to believe it can be said that MDEP is living up to its intended mission based on the concessions they continue to make by off ering extension after extension of the fi nal capping of the landfi ll and now this. Truly unfortunate and very discouraging to say the least,” he said. The DEP’s 30-page ruling was accompanied by 42 pages of responses to public feedback at the October hearing and the agency’s responses. “MassDEP notes and appreciates that the Town of Saugus Board of Health submitted a comment letter by its independent peer reviewer, GeoInsight, who concurred with MassDEP that the “… 185 ppm limit is not adequate but the 150 ppm limit is adequate…,” the report said. “MassDEP acknowledges that several commenters supported the Draft ECP limit of 150 ppm NOx for the Saugus Facility.

The completed project will result in a transportation and recreation corridor of about 11.5 miles from the Mystic River to the Lynn shoreline, connecting the communities of Everett, Malden, Revere, Saugus and Lynn. Through EEA’s Gateway City Parks program, the Baker-Polito Administration has invested more than $15 million to design, permit and Like us on Facebook advocate newspaper Facebook.com/Advocate.news.ma construct the Northern Strand. “The Baker-Polito Administration has made expanding access to the Commonwealth’s outdoor resources a priority, and the Northern Strand is a terrifi c example of that work in action,” said EEA Secretary Kathleen Theoharides. “Trails connect communities, off er recreational and transit opportunities while providing signifi cant environmental benefi ts, and we are proud to support this project, which will provide greater mobility and access to Massachusetts’ great outdoors for residents in these Gateway Cities.” “Now, more than ever, trails such as the Northern Strand can provide an important travel corridor for the public to get to destinations,” said Transportation Secretary/CEO Stephanie Pollack. “The Northern Strand Community Trail will encourage more walking and bicycling for people trying to reach retail areas, schools and other locations. This project is an example of how we can achieve the visions and goals set forth in the State Bicycle and State Pedestrian Plans. We have to give more people more choices for travel and this trail does that.” The $13.7 million construction contract has been awarded to R. Zoppo Corporation through a public bidding process. Construction operations have begun with fi eld work starting in early 2020, and full construction activities will commence in early spring. In addition to constructing remaining sections of the trail, R. Zoppo Corporation will make additional improvements to existing sections. The construction work will be observed in the fi eld by Stantec Inc., with construction administration services being provided under the leadership of Brown Richardson + Rowe, which was – together with Stantec – hired by EEA to design and permit the Northern Strand on behalf of the fi ve communities. The contract is being administered by the City of Revere on behalf of all fi ve communities. Project updates and projected work schedules will be shared with the public via the City of Revere website and social media outreach. Construction crews, fencing and signage along the trail corridor will be visible during the construction process, which may limit access at times. Temporary trail closures are possible in order to accommodate the logistics of various work activities. Construction plans will prioritize public safety during heavy construction while balancing opportunities to maintain public access to portions of the trail where possible. “I am excited to see that we are one step closer towards the expansion of the Northern Strand Community Path through Lynn becoming a reality,” said Lynn Mayor Thomas M. McGee. “The realization of this project has been a collaborative eff ort throughout the years between state and local offi cials, community groups and residents. I look forward to the day in the very near future when our residents can enjoy this family-friendly recreational path.” “The Northern Strand Community Trail is not only a wonderful recreational escape for people in the densely-populated cities north of Boston, its completion will provide an important component of alternative transportation as the region addresses vehicular traffi c congestion on the North Shore,” said Revere Mayor Brian Arrigo. “The extension fulfi lls the dream of a ‘Bike to the Sea’ link from Boston to the seashore. The trail will complement the new development happening in Revere and other North Shore communities and contribute to healthy lifestyles that benefi t everyone. Intrepid commuters may choose to ride a bike from the North Shore into Boston – instead of sitting in traffi c. For almost all of the way into Boston, the Northern Strand Community Trail will provide a scenic alternative path to their destination.” “Malden greatly appreciates the work and investment being made by the Governor’s Gateway City Parks team that will double the paved length of the Northern Strand Trail and fully realize the vision of the fi ve communities and the Commonwealth to connect our neighborhoods to our waterfronts, schools, parks and businesses and beyond via a bike and pedestrian trail,” said Malden Mayor Gary Christenson. “We are excited to progress into the construction phase of this project, bringing us one TRAIL | SEE PAGE 19 Prices subject to change Winter Diesel Available FLEET

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – Friday, February 14, 2020 Page 5 MBTA launches Infrastructure Acceleration Plan T he MBTA recently announced the 2020 Infrastructure Acceleration Plan, which will speed up infrastructure projects for several subway lines and the Commuter Rail this year to improve service, safety and reliability on a faster timeline. These projects will include additional diversions of weekend service on all rapid transit lines and several Commuter Rail lines. In addition to some weekend diversions on the Green Line, the MBTA is planning for a pair of one-month shutdowns on the Green Line: the C Branch in July and the E Branch in August. The 2020 Infrastructure Acceleration Plan will deliver these projects eight years faster than originally planned, and will result in track replacement, upgraded intersections, and station improvements. In 2019, the MBTA executed a plan to expedite projects for customers, delivering projects two years faster than originally planned across the Red, Orange and Green Lines. Much of this work was completed through 10 weekend shutdowns on the Red and Orange Lines through the core of downtown Boston. During those shutdowns, the MBTA was able to accelerate improvements by expanding traditional work windows and increasing the number of work activities that took place. Throughout those weekends, the MBTA accommodated customers by increasing existing parallel service while also providing robust replacement service where feasible during the diversions. “Our administration is dedicated to building a better MBTA for our riders that is safer and more reliable, and the 2020 Infrastructure Acceleration Plan will help to achieve this goal faster,” said Governor Charlie Baker. “The MBTA started these projects in 2019 and will continue a vigorous schedule of construction and repairs aimed to build a system that will move more people from point to point in less time. The T has worked hard to minimize disruptions for riders for the 2020 projects by continuing to provide alternative transportation services and has also developed a new web map so riders can get the information easily during this process.” In addition to the full-month C and E Branch shutdowns, as previously announced, the MBTA has scheduled an 11-month suspension of regular Green Line service between North Station and Lechmere starting in May 2020. During the closure, the T will accelerate eff orts to strengthen the historic Lechmere Viaduct in coordination with the rebuilding of the elevated segment of track through East Cambridge and the realignment of the track to a new, relocated Lechmere Station, which is being completed as part of the project to extend the Green Line to Somerville and Medford. “MBTA customers deserve better service faster, but the T can’t deliver on modernization without disruption, including weekday station shutdowns,” said Transportation Secretary and CEO Stephanie Pollack. “During the shutdowns, we will help people get to where they are going on shuttles or other train lines. Most importantly, the temporary inconvenience will be worth it, delivering safer and more reliable service in months instead of years.” During diversions of regularly scheduled rail service, the MBTA takes steps to provide replacement service to ensure customers can reach their intended destinations. In certain cases, the MBTA increases the frequency of parallel services to accommodate customers displaced by a diversion. In other cases, the INFRASTRUCTURE | SEE PAGE 7

Friday, February 21 at 9 PM BRANDY Saturday, February 22 at 9 PM ULTIMATE ALDEAN EXPERIENCE ~ Letter-to-the-Editor ~ A Message from Stephen Fielding: Thank You, Revere Seniors Dear Revere senior friends, As most of you know, on Friday, January 10, 2020 I was summoned to the Mayor’s offi ce and informed I was not being re-appointed as Director of Elder Affairs and the Rossetti-Cowan Senior Center. According to public record as stated by the administration, “The City of Revere is at a historic crossroads…and leadership changes were made in order to meet the ambitious goals we have set for ourselves.” Subsequently, another public statement was made by the administration that said, “…the terminations were related to job performance in a general sense, but it was more about what the Mayor’s vision is for various departments and how they interact with his administration…” I am insulted and offended that my character and reputation was defamed by the latter public statement (specifi c to job performance) and that this disparaging comment was a rebuttal to those individuals who have voiced support for me and possibly the others who were terminated. Also, as a clarifi cation – no goals or vision for the Elder Aff airs Department going forward were ever shared with me. Therefore, it leaves me questioning what that very ambiguous response means. I am deeply disheartened that I cannot continue as director and be with you each day. You are my friends forever and I already miss you so much! My passion and compassion for you made each day at the senior center a wonderful life experience. I cherish the time we Friday, February 28 at 9 PM VICTIM OF CIRCUMSTANCE Nation's #1 Jason Aldean Tribute Saturday, February 29 at 9 PM BACK TO THE 80'S spent together. I have been overwhelmed by your outpouring of support calls, texts, emails, and personal good wishes during the last several weeks. I thank you with my whole heart. For me, seniors have always mattered and serving and appreciating seniors has always been my number one goal and top priority. My record speaks for itself and your embracing me into your daily lives during the past six and a half years refl ects that. I have always res pected, appreciated, admired, and considered you important. I fi rmly believe you are totally relevant and valuable contributors to the Revere community. During my six and a half years as Dir ector of Elder Aff airs and the Rossetti-Cowan Senior Center I tirelessly advocated and worked on your behalf, to ensure that the senior center provided you joy, comfort, and fun while also bringing to your attention topical information on specifi c senior issues in addition to referral contacts that hopefully guided you to resolve your problems or concerns. The programs, services, activities, shuttle van transportation service, and meals programs for you enriched your lives and increased senior participation. I initiated the special monthly luncheons that brought great entertainment to you. I loved watching your faces while you enjoyed these folks performing. I fondly remember the 2018 Golden Gala Dinner Dance that the Revere Council on Elder Affairs and I created that brought 285 seniors from across the city to a fun-fi lled dinner dance. It was just an amazing time for seniors. You and the senior center were highly visible in the local media, both print (Revere Journal and Revere Advocate) and electronic mediums (Revere Senior News and Revere TV) – promoting the Rossetti-Cowan Senior Center as a welcoming place for all seniors. For many of you, coming to the senior center became a way of life, a lifeline to the community and friends. It was your solace, a home away from home. I feel nothing but pride for the services I provided you. It was so rewarding to be with you. You should hold your heads high and always make sure you express your opinion and be heard because without you this city would be lacking the voice of its most prestigious citizens. I am very grateful to former Mayor Dan Rizzo for selecting me as director years ago and providing me this amazing opportunity. I thank Speaker of the House Robert DeLeo and Representative RoseLee Vincent for their genuine, heart-felt concern and support for seniors and myself. I also extend a thank-you to Senator Joe Boncore as well as those city councilors and school committee members who gave their time, attention, and gifts to seniors. As seniors say, I will see you tomorrow “God-willing”. Stay strong and don’t forget you have Senior Power. Sincerely, Steve Fielding with Danny McCarthy Trio Friday, March 6 at 7 PM Leap Year Show!

Page 10 THE REVERE ADVOCATE – Friday, February 14, 2020 Cheever explodes in back-to-back Revere wins By Greg Phipps I t has been a tough season overall for the Revere High School girls’ basketball team. But recent games have shown that the team’s resiliency is beginning to pay off a bit. The Lady Patriots WINS | SEE PAGE 16 Patriot boys get back in playoff hunt By Greg Phipps played a very good Saugus team to a near standstill last Thursday at home and then notched wins over Medford and Malden to go to 5-13 on the season. The biggest highlight of the J ust when it looked as if the Revere High School boys’ basketball team had put itself in a precarious situation in terms of making the postseason, the Patriots reversed course and notched three straight victories to pull within four points (two wins) of a playoff berth. A 58-49 win on Monday at home over Malden gave Revere an 8-9 record as of early this week. Early last week, a loss at Peabody, Revere’s fourth consecutive defeat at the time, had left the Patriots sitting at 5-9. The one positive aspect of the Peabody loss was that Revere staged a spirited comeback in the fi nal quarter before falling short at the end. In Monday’s win, the Patriots received double-digit scoring from Dillan Day (17 points) and Crisrael Lithgow (14). Robert Raduazzo added nine points and Calvin Boudreau, six. The Patriots shot 10 of 13 from the foul line and hauled down 31 rebounds, led by John Capozzi’s 11 boards. Monday's triumph was preceded by a 61-50 win at Woburn last Saturday and a 6550 victory at Medford last Friday. Lithgow led the team in scoring in both contests, netting a teamhigh 21 points in the Woburn Lady Patriots senior guard Erika Cheever combined for 54 points in wins over Medford and Malden last week. (Advocate Photo by Greg Phipps) FEBRUARY 3, 2020 On Monday, Revere’s Dillan Day scored 17 points to lead the Patriots to a home win over Malden. (Advocate Photo by Greg Phipps) win and 15 in the defeat of Medford. Against Woburn, Day contributed 10 points and Capozzi nine. Amara Bockarie and Boudreau combined for 10 assists. Capozzi was strong on the boards with 12 rebounds. Raduazzo was one of the other Patriot players in double fi gures against Medford. He finished with 11 points. Lewiss Garcia Martinez poured in 12 on six of 10 shooting, and Capozzi and Bockarie added eight and seven points, respectively. Capozzi and Martinez combined for 21 of Revere’s 40 rebounds in the win. The Patriots also hit on nine of 12 free throws. The Patriots hosted KIPP Academy on Wednesday (after press deadline) and then take on Arlington Catholic on the road next Monday, Feb. 17.

It was the second season in a row Cheever has gone off for 30 against Medford. Nearly duplicating that eff ort, Cheever poured home 24 in a 13-point win over Malden on Monday. Head coach Matt Willis, who has not been able to coach the team in recent games due to personal matters, praised the job his assistant coaches are doing in his absence. He also said the fi nal scores of several games have not always refl ected how competitive his team has been. “In some of our games, the scores look worse than it really is,” he said. “For a team that’s been through as much adversity with sickness and injuries, I A curriculum that student leaders can use to do additional peer education will also be developed.

Staff will work jointly with students to create a more inviting and therapeutic environment in their current space. New Hydration Station at the Beachmont School: awarded $1,459 to the Beachmont School for a new water filling station. The goal of the project is to promote the importance of proper hydration to students and reduce the number of dehydration-related visits to the nurse’s offi ce.

It’s good that they’re now beginning to see some benefi ts of their hard work.” Willis added that his team is small and is almost always undersized against any team they go up against. But the team’s tenacity and hard work has kept it competitive despite that disadvantage. Last Thursday’s 42-36 home loss to a 13-win Saugus team was a perfect example of Revere’s fight. The Lady Patriots were defeated by 28 points at Saugus a couple of weeks earlier but were in last Thursday’s contest to the very end. Guard Skyla DeSimone led Revere’s scoring with 11 points in the loss. The Revere girls close out their season at Beverly on Sunday afternoon (scheduled 4:15 p.m. tip). Players honored at last week’s Senior Night game were guards Cheever and Katie O’Connell, who also served as this year’s captains.

Beacon Hill Roll Call records votes of local representatives from the week of February 3-7. There were no roll calls in the Senate last week. PROTECT DISABLED PERSONS – NICKY’S BILL (H 4296) House 154-0, Senate on a voice vote without a roll call, gave fi nal approval to and sent to Gov. Charlie Baker a measure that would establish a registry that identifi es individuals who have been found to have committed abuse against persons with disabilities. The measure was fi led by Sen. Mike Moore (D-Millbury) at the request of a constituent who is the mother of Nicky, an intellectually disabled and non-verbal individual. Nicky had been inappropriately restrained and struck multiple times by her caretaker. Under current law, unless the offender is criminally convicted, no system exists to identify caretakers and prevent them from fi nding employment with another provider licensed by the state. “Enacting this registry will help disrupt a cycle of abuse of individuals with disabilities and put in place common-sense protections that families in the commonwealth deserve,” said Moore. “There are clear benefits to screening prospective employees who intend to work within the licensed caretaker fi eld and I am hopeful that the bill will advance to the governor’s desk to help protect our most vulnerable residents like Nicky.” (A “Yes” vote is for the bill.) Rep. Bob DeLeo Yes Rep. RoseLee Vincent Yes GIVE POWER TO CANNABIS CONTROL COMMISSION (H 4367) House 122-33, approved and sent to the Senate legislation a bill that would give the Cannabis Control Commission (CCC) the power to review, regulate and enforce Home Community Agreements (HCAs) and stop municipalities from demanding payments beyond what the law allows. Business owners have complained that cities or towns are demanding more from businesses than state laws allow. Current law requires a business that applies for a marijuana business licenses to enter into an HCA before the CCC will consider an application. The law stipulates that those agreements cannot run for more than fi ve years and that the community impact fee paid to the municipality by the licensee cannot exceed three percent of the establishment’s gross sales. “What we heard from some of the folks where there was no clarifi cation as to enforcement, where they could go if they felt that they were wrong and some felt that the legislation as is right now wasn’t clear enough,” said House Speaker Bob DeLeo (Dessary in order to prevent municipalities from demanding cannabis operators to make payments beyond what the law allows,” said Jim Borghesani, former communications director for the 2016 marijuana legalization campaign. “I hope the Senate passes the measure and that the governor signs it. I also hope the Cannabis Control Commission uses the power that this legislation would provide.” “I believe that towns should be in charge of their own destiny,” said Rep. Shawn Dooley (R-Norfolk) who voted against the measure. “The elected offi cials of a town are much better suited to understanding the individual needs and complexities of their community than by some appointed board in Boston.” “The bill empowers the Cannabis Control Commission to ‘review, regulate and enforce,’ all host community agreements and allows the state agency to reject certain provisions in these agreements by deeming them unenforceable even if such agreements meet the requirements of the law’ said Rep. Hannah Kane (R-Shrewsbury) The expansion of this regulatory power granted to the Cannabis Control Commission impedes on the right of parties to freely contract and for this fundamental reason – I voted against the legislation.” (A “Yes” vote is for the bill. A “No” vote is against it.) Rep. Bob DeLeo Yes Rep. RoseLee Vincent Yes HOW LONG WAS LAST WEEK’S SESSION? Beacon Hill Roll Call tracks the length of time that the House and Senate were in session each week. Many legislators say that legislative sessions are only one aspect of the Legislature’s job and that a lot of important work is done outside of the House and Senate chambers. They note that their jobs also involve committee work, research, constituent work and other matters that are important to their districts. Critics say that the Legislature does not meet regularly or long enough to debate and vote in public view on the thousands of pieces of legislation that have been fi led. They note that the infrequency and brief length of sessions are misguided and lead to irresponsible late-night sessions and a mad rush to act on dozens of bills in the days immediately preceding the end of an annual session. During the week of February 3-7, the House met for a total of eight hours and 21 minutes while the Senate met for a total of one hour and 41 minutes. Mon.

Page 18 THE REVERE ADVOCATE – Friday, February 14, 2020 Obituaries How to Detect Parkinson’s Disease Dear Savvy Senior, What are the early warning signs of Parkinson’s disease? I was just diagnosed with it after noticing hand tremors for nearly a year, but looking back, I’m wondering if I missed any other early warning signs. Tremoring Tom Dear Tom, The Holy Grail in any progressive disease is to find it early enough to start eff ective treatment before irreversible damage has occurred. But recognizing the early warning signs of Parkinson’s disease is challenging because they’re usually subtle and can be easily overlooked, dismissed or even misdiagnosed. Parkinson’s disease, which affl icts around 1 million Americans, is a degenerative disorder that occurs when the brain’s dopamine-producing neurons die or become impaired. This happens in the part of the brain that controls movement, which can cause tremors (or shaking), stiff ness, and diffi culty with walking, balance, and coordination. The symptoms usually begin gradually and get worse over time, and the progression of symptoms is often diff erent from one person to another. Some people with Parkinson’s become severely disabled, while others may experience only minor motor disruptions. While the cause of Parkinson’s disease is unknown, scientists believe genetics and environmental factors (exposure to certain toxins) play a key role. Most people with Parkinson’s fi rst develop the disease around age 60 or older, and men are more likely to develop it than are women. Early Warning Signs Parkinson’s disease is diffi cult to diagnose because there’s no defi nitive test to confi rm it. Doctors, usually neurologists, will do an examination and evaluate a combination of warning signs, but symptoms can vary greatly by patient which often leads to confusion and misdiagnosis. That said, here are some of the key signs and symptoms everyone should know. Trouble sleeping: Thrashing around in bed or acting out dreams – kicking or punching – when asleep. This is a REM sleep behavior disorder and one of the strongest and earliest pre-diagnostic symptoms of Parkinson’s disease. Loss of smell: Not being able to smell certain foods very well like bananas, dill pickles or licorice. This too is one of the earliest symptoms. Constipation: Problems with digestion and bowel movements are a big problem for people with Parkinson’s, and an early sign that can occur up to 20 years before this disease is diagnosed. Changes in handwriting: Writing may become harder to do, and your handwriting may appear much smaller than it has in the past. Tremors: Slight shaking or tremor in your fi nger, thumb, hand or chin. The tremor usually happens at rest, and when you move the extremity it may disappear. This is the most common and recognizable outward sign of Parkinson’s disease, but by the time tremors start, the brain has already lost more than half of its dopamineproducing cells. Slowed movement: Over time, Parkinson’s disease can slow movements, making simple tasks difficult and time-consuming. Your steps may become shorter when you walk. It may be diffi cult to get out of a chair. You may drag your feet as you try to walk. Speech changes: Speaking softly, quickly, slurring or hesitating before talking. Your speech may be more of a monotone rather than with the usual infl ections. Loss of automatic movements: Decreased ability to perform unconscious movements, like blinking, smiling or swinging your arms when you walk. Impaired posture and balance: Stooping, leaning or slouching when you stand, and/or balance problems can all be a sign of Parkinson’s. Treatments Currently, there is no known cure for Parkinson’s disease, but there are a variety of medications that can provide relief from the symptoms. In some later cases, surgery may be advised. Other treatments include lifestyle modifi cations, like getting more rest and exercise. For more information, visit the Parkinson’s Foundation at Parkinson.org.

OBITUARIES | SEE PAGE 22 Wheelabrator from making upgrades • ERCs are a way to circumvent the spirit of the law that is designed specifi cally to protect us • Would like to see actual emission reductions at the stack rather than buying credits In its response, the DEP said it “appreciates WSI acknowledging that it plans to submit a demonstration of how ERCs will be used to achieve compliance with the 150 ppm NOx limit within thirty (30) days of the issuance of the ECP Modifi ed Approval.”

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – Friday, February 14, 2020 Page 19 TRAIL | FROM PAGE 4 step closer to providing safer, more secure pathways for residents and visitors to use and enjoy,” said Saugus Town Manager Scott Crabtree. “We are proud to move forward with this design that incorporated feedback from residents which was gathered during two public meetings. During the meetings, members of the public had multiple opportunities to learn about the project, ask questions, and share ideas. I would like to thank Governor Baker, Lieutenant Governor Polito, and the Executive Offi ce of Energy and Environmental Aff airs for their support of this important regional initiative. I would also like to commend the Cities of Revere, Malden, Lynn, and Everett for their dedication in turning this multi-community eff ort into a reality. In addition, I would like to thank all of the Town’s volunteers who contributed their ideas and suggestions, which strengthened the community vision for this important recreational staple.” “The Northern Strand, and in particular the Revere and Saugus portions along the Rumney Marsh, is a simply magnifi cent trail that off ers natural beauty in an otherwise urban setting,” said State Representative RoseLee Vincent (D-Revere). “I thank the Baker-Polito Administration, the collaboration among Revere, Saugus, Lynn and Everett, as well as Bike to the Sea for making this come to fruition. The enhancements in Revere and the completion of the Saugus-Lynn parts of the trail will be a welcome project to our communities.” “This is great news for Lynn. The Northern Strand Community Path is a great example of what can be achieved when all stakeholders work together to turn vision into reality,” said State Representative Peter Capano (D-Lynn) “Our parkways and open space are natural gems of the Commonwealth. Weaving together these fi ve Gateway Cities with outdoor, recreational space will benefi t this entire region,” said State Senator Joe Boncore (D-Winthrop). “Expanding the Northern Strand Community Trail also provides opportunities to walk and bike rather than sitting in traffi c; another step to alleviating congestion in this area.” “This multi-community project is a huge environmental and recreational win that will benefi t the entire North Shore,” said State Senator Brendan Crighton (D-Lynn). “While much focus has been put on the signifi cant development taking place in the area, it is important to highlight the access to open space and the transformation of this trail.” “The extension of the Northern Strand Community Trail to the Lynn shoreline is a great example of what strong collaboration amongst state, local, and community leaders can accomplish,” said State Representative Dan Cahill (D-Lynn). “The completion of the Northern Strand will bring many benefi ts to residents North of Boston including access to open space, transit, and recreation." “We’re thrilled to see 27 years of our devoted work and cooperative eff orts with countless local governments and organizations fi nally reaching fruition,” said Bike to the Sea Executive Director Yurij Lojko. “Bike to the Sea, Inc. began dreaming about a safe biking route to the beach, but we’re ending up with something even more important – a vibrant mixed-use community path with recreation and transportation benefi ts to all people north of Boston. We look forward to the completion of this very exciting step in expanding Boston’s off-road community path network.” “We at the Solomon Foundation were pleased to be a small but catalytic part of this eff ort to connect together fi ve cities and towns and in the process to unlock access to our natural legacy of rivers, marshes and beaches,” said Solomon Foundation Executive Director Herb Nolan. “With help from the Barr Foundation we were able to partner with Bike to the Sea, Inc. and with the City of Lynn in advocacy, planning, and early design. Kudos to the many leaders involved from the grass roots to the governor’s offi ce who came together to make this quarter century vision a reality.” The investment of more than $15 million by EEA to design, permit and construct the Northern Strand recognizes the importance of this trail corridor to the fi ve communities while building on a key Baker-Polito Administration initiative. In 2018, Governor Charlie Baker and Lieutenant Governor Karen Polito established an Interagency Trails Team, which is led by the Governor’s offi ce and is composed of staff from EEA, the Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) and the Department of Conservation & Recreation (DCR). The purpose of the team is to help develop a unifi ed vision for a trails network and translate that into strategic investments, policy innovations to facilitate development of trails, and shared partnerships with municipal partners. The Northern Strand Community Trail project is a direct result of the group’s “one team, one plan, one vision” approach to advance multiuse trails across the Commonwealth.

The goal of the project is to develop a strong network of young women at SeaCoast High School by exploring topics related to their health, wellness and future.
