Advocate News Online: www.advocatenews.net Vol. 32, No.8 -FREEwww.advocatenews.net Free Every Friday Wonderland owners sue city over proposed high school site Delaware lending company challenge eminent domain price tag By Barbara Taormina T he former owners of the Wonderland property, which was taken by the city through eminent domain as the site for the new high school, are not happy with the $29.5 million Revere intends to pay for the property. CBW Lending LLC, a Wilmington, DE based Limited Liability Company, has fi led a complaint in Suff olk Superior Court which kicks off a lawsuit against the city. According to Attorney Peter Flynn, who along with Attorney Jason Scopa is representing CBW Lending, the money the city off ered for the property is inadequate and does not refl ect the fair market value of the site. “My clients recognize that in eminent domain cases, landowners can challenge if it’s an improper taking,” said Flynn who has a long history of successfully representing landowners in eminent domain takings. “They are not challenging the process; they are only challenging the amount of compensation. As Flynn sees it, the city’s off er is between $40 and $100 milBut the lawsuit looking for more money was not unexpected. “The (complaint) was not a surprise,” said City Council President Patrick Keefe. “Ultimately, I think everyone expected that there would be some litigation. We did prepare to have an attorney.” But Keefe seemed confi dent that the city’s appraisal of the property could withstand a challenge from CBW Lending. “Those are make-believe numbers. There is zero evidence that DANIEL RIZZO Councillor-At-Large lion short. “My clients who are roaringly successful people from New York, have hired the best lawyers and the best experts,” said Flynn. “The battle will be over how much that property is really worth. For city offi cials who are struggling to fi nd ways to pay for the new high school without crushing taxpayers, the idea of adding an additional $40 million to the cost of the project is daunting. piece of property is worth that. If it were such a valuable property, why would it lie vacant for so long?” he asked. “Surely they’ll try to fi nd some sort of analysis that leads to a minimum price of $70 million,” said Keefe who added he has faith in the court system to look at the numbers and come up with something fair. Councillor-At-Large Dan Rizzo also said CBW’s lawsuit was no surprise. “There was no way we were going to get that property for $29 million,” said Rizzo who SITE | SEE Page 22 Basketball Pats qualify for tourney T JESSICA GIANNINO State Representative Special to Th e Advocate he Massachusetts House of Representatives on Friday announced its committee assignments for the 2023-2024 Legislative Session.

The funding is available for lease subsidies, construction or renovation, operations seed costs, and supportive design or consultant activities necessary to launch or signifi cantly enhance the performance of approximately two to four pilot shared spaces in the Shirley Avenue neighborhood. When it comes to shared spaces, eligible projects could include anything from an emerging food business using a restaurant’s commercial kitchen in its off hours to a gallery curated on the walls of an existing business to daytime offi ce space “popping up” in a nightclub or restaurant space that sits largely empty during the day. The program’s intent is to stabilize, retain and grow local small businesses while cultivating new entrepreneurs. Average grant awards are expected to range from $20,000 to $60,000. “The Shirley Ave neighborhood is a business district in Revere that is constantly growing, changing, and adapting,” said Mayor Brian Arrigo. “I am grateful to have the support of the TDI Partnership and Women Encouraging Empowerment, who are working to adopt innovative solutions for the space limitations faced by the Shirley Ave neighborhood. Revere should always be a place for entrepreneurs and small businesses to thrive and expand, and I hope to see this funding used to further support this distinctive business community.” Revere’s Shirley Avenue neighborhood is brimming with diverse talent, engaged community members and collaborative business and property owners. However, one common limitation faced by many of the individuals and groups is space. The competitive commercial property market puts pressure on small businesses, therefore making it diffi cult to expand and grow within the Shirley Avenue neighborhood. Shared commercial space is accomplished by pairing businesses or community groups with similar customer bases, complementary space requirements or alternating hours of operating. SPACE | SEE Page 19

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 24, 2023 Page 3 Developer moves on from Arcadia St. restorative housing project Attorney cites pushback from local residents, city councillors By Barbara Taormina T he residents of Arcadia Street have won an improbable victory. The neighborhood formed a united front against a plan to open a restorative housing and educational facility that would serve the local homeless population at 84 Arcadia St. They were up against a developer who could move ahead with the project by right, a state law that waives zoning restrictions for such facilities and the city’s powerhouse lawyer. Ultimately, the developer and Attorney Gerry D’Ambrosio heard the residents’ concerns and decided to look for an alternative site. “People say you can’t fi ght City Hall, but the residents of Arcadia Street fought and won. They stood up for their neighborhood,” said Councillor-at-Large Dan Rizzo, who added that he is proud of the way Arcadia Street handled the issue. “I’m thrilled, it’s just a great victory.” D’Ambrosio said homelessness in Revere is a difficult problem that requires education and collaboration. “I’m hoping that Arcadia Street at least raises the issue that we need one of these facilities. There are 25 to 50 people living on the streets in Revere. These are people with Revere roots, Revere High grads, and these folks aren’t going away,” he said. For D’Ambrosio, the real test is acknowledging that problem. Arcadia Street residents did acknowledge the problem and continually expressed support for this type of facility – just not on their dead-end street fi lled with kids and elderly residents. VICTORY | SEE Page 19 Dr. Stacey Mulligan is February 2023’s Public Servant of the Month F ormerly known as SeaCoast Alternative High School, in Beachmont, CityLab Innovation High School is now booming more than ever before with innovative programs, community projects and student involvement. Dr. Stacey Mulligan, Principal of CityLab Innovation High School, has worked tirelessly over the last few years to adapt the school into what it is today. Her innovative ideas and dedication to the future of Revere make Dr. Stacey Mulligan a clear choice for February’s Public Servant of the Month. Q: What do you do in the city? A: I am the Principal of CityLab Innovation High School, formerly known as SeaCoast Alternative High School. Last year we participated in a school re-design to better serve students in the city who are looking for a nontraditional high school experience. We off er a multitude of different opportunities for our students like internships, dual enrollment, and exploratory courses in all diff erent vocations. We purposefully named the school CityLab because we wanted the city, both Revere and Boston, to be our students’ classrooms. Q: What is your connection to Revere? A: My fi rst introduction to the city was actually from two proud Revere natives. In 2009 I started my doctoral degree at UMass Boston, and one of the fi rst connections I made was with Dr. Christina Porter, the Director of Humanities of Revere Public Schools. She would often share all of the wonderful things that were happening in RPS. Years later, Dr. John Perella, Director of Youth Engagement & Success, hired me as his Assistant Principal in Medford. Soon after he returned to Revere, he thought I would be a good fi t and recruited me to join the district as the Principal of SeaCoast, and the rest is history! Q: What has been the highlight of your job so far? A: The highlight of my job by far has been how easily the stuticipating in an Architecture Pathway. Students involved in coding and college-level math courses travel regularly to Cambridge to The Foundry through our partnership with Digital Ready and UMass. We even have students assisting with Revere High School’s production of In the Heights, working on their set design one day a week. With the small size of our school, we are able to hone in on our ability to be fl exible and hear from our students’ about their interests DR. STACEY MULLIGAN dents have adapted to our new model of the high school. I defi - nitely had to take a leap of faith with all of the new programing and changes. With the reputations of alternative high schools, I wasn’t sure if people would trust me with their children. I have been overwhelmed by all of the love and support from the families, city, and community in supporting our new school. The students have exceeded my expectations with their independence, willingness to try new things, and by putting themselves way out of their comfort zones. Q: Tell us a little bit about what you’re doing over at CityLab High School. What programming are you doing that is new that Revere residents may not know about? A: At CityLab we put an emphasis on merging high school, college, and industry experiences together. On Wednesdays we off er exploratory courses that run for two periods and change each quarter so our students get to try out all diff erent types of pathways. So far this year we’ve off ered courses in Cosmetology, Tech Design, Architecture, Culinary, Robotics, Woodworking, and more. We currently have our second cohort of students dually enrolled in ELA courses with Benjamin Franklin Cummings Institute of Technology, who travel into Boston two days a week for their classes, as well as students who have received college credits from UMass Amherst for parOur 50th Anniversary Dan - 1972 We Sell Cigars & Accessories!

For example, students shared their desire for a language course and we were able to hire a Japanese teacher and off er Japanese classes. We are in the process of creating a biotech pathway and are always looking for more opportunities to support our students. Q: If you could give yourself a piece of advice when you were in high school, what would you give? A: I went to a small private high school in Worcester. My school encouraged independent thinking and discovery, was very rigorous, and academic focused. I wasn’t the strongest academic student, but I was always curious and wanted to learn. My advice to my high school self would be to always keep that curiosity even when things get challenging. And to not be afraid to put yourself out there in spaces where you don’t think you belong. Everyone deserves a seat at the table.

The late-developing storm began with a drastic drop in temperature into the mid-30s by midday Wednesday, followed with a slushy mix of sleet, rain and snow up until about 1:00 a.m. Thursday. The thermometer went well below freezing into the high 20s after midnight, and heavy snow fell from about 1:00 to 5:00 a.m., dumping up to four inches of snow in The Advocate readership area of Everett, Malden, Revere and Saugus.

City and town DPW crews and hired help were out in the early morning hours clearing the streets and roadways and spreading salt and sand for safety. State and local police reported a number of motor vehicle accidents both on the highways and in cities and towns due to the hazardous travel conditions and timing of the storm. The local communities did dodge a potential major issue which could have posed a problem, as all public and parochial schools in the region were closed this week due to February School Vacation. While personnel were out clearing the snow from the school facilities as usual during the storm, it most defi nitely would have been a “Snow Day” for schools due to the timing of the snow and other weather conditions. It would have been highly unlikely the snow could have been cleared around sidewalks and on the stairs of the schools to make for safe passage. The weather pattern is forecast to remain sketchy – and more wintry! – for the rest of the month, into March. Colder, more seasonal temperatures in the high 30s and low 40s are sticking around for the next two weeks, according to Accuweather, with more snow expected mid-to-late week, March 1-3, and again, snow is forecast for March 8-10 as Ole Man Winter apparently wants to get his last blasts in before spring offi cially arrives on Sunday, March 20. Malden High School Head Custodian Steve Krzywicki got some distance on the snowblower early Thursday morning.

Page 8 THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 24, 2023 Neighborhood protests proposed Transitional Home at North Shore Rd. business Friday L ast Friday morning, approx. 40 Oak Island area residents attended a protest of a proposed construction 24-bed facility to help individuals transitioning from treatment to training at 84 Arcadia St. that would off er those who are transitioning from substance abuse treatment to a facility off ering lifechanging training through a programed re-entry back into society. Protesters gathered in front of European Collision Works, the owners of the proposed facility, on North Shore Road, to voice their opposition to the project. Since its introduction a few weeks ago, the proposal has been met with resistance from the neighbors and city council. Protesters have made claims that the proposed facility would be the equivalent to a homeless shelter or sober house consisting of unstable and possible criminal element that would be a negative impact to the neighborhood citing various public safety issues. Attorney for the developers, Gerry D’Ambrosio has stated that the individuals have been misinformed about the proposed facility’s function and clientele, stating that residents would be vetted for criminal records, would not off er treatment for drugs and alcohol, and all clients will have already completed sobriety treatments. The local attorney also cited that the project falls under the Dover Amendment, which exempts educational, religious, and agricultural businesses from certain zoning restrictions, which cannot be voted on by the city council. Protest organizer, Anthony Parziale (left) discusses the protest with Frank Mahoney-Burroughs. Eleanor McCarthy and Joanne Gaff Monteforte hold signs on North Shore Rd. Friday. Ward 3 Councillor Anthony Cogliandro stands with Ward 5 residents last Friday morning on North Shore Road. Oak Island residents are shown protesting on North Shore Rd. on Friday.

Stephen Fiore and his wife, Annmarie with their children were at European Collision Works to show their opposition to the construction of the facility on Arcadia Street. ~ GUEST COMMENTARY ~ The Dover Amendment Was Never Intended to Hammer on a Neighborhood By Sal Giarratani W hen I read the news about that “restorative, educational housing” plan for the Oak Island neighborhood near Revere Beach being staff ed by Bay Cove Human Services in the Revere Advocate (February 10), I knew advocates for this type of housing program would not be received well by homeowners and residents, especially those living on or near a quiet deadend road. If anything, the opposition to this idea has only grown more vocal. Last week, this news item hit the Boston Herald on February 16 with the announcement that community residents would be holding a public protest. I guess in order to get around neighborhood opposition and getting turned down by the powers that be at City Hall, all you have to do is throw the word “educational” in the mix, and developers get to use the Dover Amendment, a state statute to exempt a proposal from zoning restrictions and prevent city councillors from having any say in the matter. I don’t know about you but when someone tries to sneak in something by fi nding a statute that takes away the rights of a neighborhood, city or its elected offi cials from stopping it, it may be a legal method of building something but instantly you’ve created a neighborhood against you. That can’t be good for people in need of services. Do you have a feeling like me that they threw the word “educational” into the mix to ram something down the unwilling throats of neighbors concerned about the safety of their neighborhood? The attorney for the developers points out this site is not going to be a detox center or sober house. It will provide psychiatric care, drug counseling and vocational training. Taking the homeless off the streets of Revere is a laudable goal. Can I tell you something? I am friends with Attorney Gerry D’Ambrosio who represents the developers of this 5,000-squarefoot facility. I’ve seen a photo of the vacant three family and I’ve seen an architectural drawing of the planned facility. I must say it does seem large, leaving an outsized footprint on this neighborhood road. I hear what D’Ambrosio is saying; if there is disinformation out there and if there is any peddling of fear, it most likely is fueled by the method in which supporters of this facility pushed its way into the neighborhood creating immediate tensions. Using the Dover Amendment is seen by the neighborhood as incoming fi re. If the hope was to see this planned facility becoming part of the neighborhood, this was not the best way to form any kind of bond with the abutters of this property. This proposed center will most likely push its way in but the relations with the city and residents afterwards will produce more headaches than community bonding. It is one thing to knock on your neighbor’s door to introduce yourself but another thing to enter the street like an army taking over your street. More discussion, much more talking is necessary if the backers of this center want things to work out for everyone.

School of Science (PCSS) in Everett (PCSSI) and Saugus (PCSS2) hosted the 16th Annual Science and Engineering Fair. This year’s theme was “Reimagining Your Daily Life,” a concept celebrated by nearly 300 student participants. All of PCSS’ 6-12th grade students participated in a preliminary event in December, and then students were selected to participate in the fair. Judges for the fair were recruited from the STEM community in the Boston area, including MIT, MIT Linand Northeastern. Each year the Fair aims to allow students to use the scientifi c method or engineering design process to investigate a question or problem that interests them outside the general class curriculum. This also serves as a method for students to complete an independent research project as part of the PCSS college readiness program and assists students in developing the necessary skills in verbal and written scientifi c communication. sourced students for today’s competitive world. PCSS helps students develop the academic and social skills necessary to become successful professionals and exemplary community members through a rigorous academic curriculum emphasizing math and science. Balanced by a foundation in the humanities, a character education program, career-oriented college preparation and strong student-teacher-parent collaboration, PCSS will meet its mission.

Page 12 THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 24, 2023 Patriot boys finish strong, make postseason By Greg Phipps H aving its full complement of players after suffering through some injuries to key players midway through the campaign, the Revere High School boys’ basketball team was able to regroup to win fi ve of its last six games and earn a spot in the state Div. II playoff tournament. The Patriots finished 10-10 overall on the season. They, at one point, stood at 5-9 and a postseason berth looked remote at best. Revere will discover its tournament seeding and opening round opponent later this week. In the regular-season finale on Tuesday at home against Hamilton-Wenham, the Patriots rolled to a convincing 57-34 triumph with a playoff bid on the line. Afterward, Head Coach David Leary said he was “so proud” of his team for sticking together after dropping four games below.500 with six games left in the 2022-23 season. As it turns out, Revere will get to play at least one more contest this winter. Against H-W, senior captain Domenic Boudreau continued his off ensive onslaught by draining 23 points, followed by 11 from Vincent Nichols. Boudreau also pulled off a double-double by grabbing 14 rebounds. Win number nine came at the expense of neighboring Everett last Wednesday. Once again, Boudreau was the leader with 28 points, seven rebounds and six blocked shots in a 56-49 victory. Alejandro Hincapie collected 15 points and had three steals, while Nichols chipped in with eight points and seven boards. In between the two big wins was a tough 69-53 defeat against a very good Peabody squad on the road last Friday night. The game started off promisingly for the Patriots, who raced out to an early 7-2 advantage and led 1615 after one quarter. However, with the aid of a 17-6 surge by the hosts, Revere trailed 37-29 at halftime. Peabody would outscore the Patriots 21-11 in the third period to pretty much put the game away. Ethan Day fi nished with a team-high 13 points and senior captain Sal DeAngelis added 11. Vinny Vu also scored 11 points, and Day collected six rebounds. Alejandro Hincapie collected 15 points to back up captain Domenic Boudreau’s 28 in last Wednesday’s win at Everett. Senior captain Sal DeAngelis fi nished with 11 points in last Friday’s loss at Peabody.

Five years later, the assets in the irrevocable Trust will not be countable for MassHealth eligibility purposes. Furthermore, not only is probate avoided upon the Settlor’s death (i.e. the creator of the trust), but probate would also be avoided if a child/benefi ciary were to die prior to the Settlor (i.e. parent). The predeceased child’s children or even grandchildren would become a benefi ciary of the trust and that child’s benefi - cial interest in the trust would escape the probate process. If that child leaves minor children behind, the trustee would follow the terms of the trust and pay for items such as medical expenses, educational expenses, house expenses, etc. If, on the other hand, a parent chooses to deed the home or rental property to his or her children directly, while reserving a life estate, and one of the children were to predecease the parent, that child’s remainder interest in that property would be part of his or her probate estate. As estate planners, we try to avoid the probate process whenever possible for many reasons, such as cost and time delays. This could present a problem many years down the road if no one takes steps to probate the estate of the predeceased child.

With an irrevocable trust, the child has no current ownership interest. The trustee is free to sell the real estate any time without the consent of the child. If the trust is drafted as a grantor-type trust, the capital gain exclusion of $500,000 on the sale of the principal residence will still be aff orded to the Settlor of the trust. If it was rental property that was sold, the entire capital gain would still be reported by the Settlor on his or her tax return. The children would not be reporting any of the capital gains transactions on their own tax returns. The trust would actually fi le a tax return as a grantor-type trust and then issue a grantor letter to the Settlor (also referred to as a Grantor). With a legal life estate, the capital gain on the sale of a home or rental property would have to be allocated to the parent who reserved the life estate and the children who are the remaindermen. The computation for IRS purposes is based on the Book Aleph table and the IRS Section 7520 interest rates. For MassHealth purposes, at least for now, the computation is based upon the Social Security POMS tables. Hopefully, MassHealth will agree to use the IRS tables as the IRS tables are much more favorable to the life tenant if the home were to be sold, for example, as less of the net sales proceeds will be placed back on the table for the life tenant only to be included as a countable asset for MassHealth eligibility purposes. With an irrevocable trust, if the home or rental property is sold and converted to cash, the cash is safe inside the irrevocable trust. There is no risk of the trust assets becoming countable. If the parent decides to serve as trustee and there is a trust provision allowing for use and occupancy of any real estate held in trust, then any real estate abatement off ered by the city or town will remain intact. It will not be lost due to placing the home into trust. The trust must be absolutely clear that there can be no principal distributions to the Settlor under any circumstances and that the Trustee must strictly adhere to the terms of the trust and comply with each and every fi duciary duty owed to the remaindermen of the Trust.

There were no roll calls in the House or Senate last week. ALLOW 30 MINUTES BEFORE CONSIDERING NEW ITEMS (S 17) Senate 5-33, rejected a Senate rules amendment that would require a 30-minute recess before considering new items on the Senate agenda calendar. Current rules require a recess but do not specify the minimum length of the recess “This amendment would have ensured at least 30 minutes of time for the consideration of new matters pending before the Senate,” said Sen. Becca Rausch (D-Needham), one of only two Democrats to vote for the amendment. “Especially considering the magnitude of some of the legislation that comes to the fl oor, 30 minutes seemed like a reasonable amount of time to review the content.” “I respect the intent of the … amendment to ensure suffi cient time to contemplate these issues coming before us,” said Sen. Joan Lovely (DSalem). “But [I] would suggest that we don’t need a full 30 minutes to do so in every case.” (A “Yes” vote is for the 30-minute recess. A “No” vote is against it.) Sen. Lydia Edwards No www.eight10barandgrille.com OPEN DAILY FOR DINNER AT 4 PM. CATCH THE CELTICS, BRUINS & NCAA SPORTS ON OUR 6 LARGE SCREEN TV'S! m ELIMINATE REMOTE VOTING (S 17) Senate 3-35, rejected a Senate rules amendment that would strike the rule that allows a senator to participate remotely, from their home, offi ce or other location. In a Senate session. The rule was fi rst instituted during the pandemic. Amendment supporters said it is WE'RE OPEN! 8 Norwood Street, Everett (617) 387-9810 time to abolish remote voting and require senators to show up in person for Senate sessions. They argued that the remote voting system was reasonable and useful during the COVID epidemic but noted that remote voting ends up in senators not being able to talk and communicte with each other during the Senate sessions. Sen. Ryan Fattman (R-Suttin), the sponsor of the amenmdent, did not responnd to repeated attempts by Beacon Hill Roll Call asking him why he fi led and supported the amendment. Amendment opponents said that remote voting is a good second option for senators who cannot be in the chamber because of illness, family matters and more. They noted remote voting increases opportunities for senators to vote instead of not being recorded on a roll call because they are not in the chamber. (A “Yes” vote is for striking the rule allowing remote voting and is therefore against remote voting. “A “No” vote is against eliminating the rule and therefore in favor of remote voting.) Sen. Lydia Edwards No ALLOW MINORITY REPORTS (S 18) Senate 3-36, rejected a joint rules amendment that would allow opponents of a bill to issue a minority report on why they oppose a bill being reported out of a committee. Current rules allow senators to indicate that they oppose the bill but only the senators who support the bill are allowed to submit their reasons for supporting it. “Those in the minority of a committee decision should be allowed to off er a published record of why they dissented from the majority,” said Sen. Patrick O’Connor (R-Weymouth). “The Supreme Court allows the dissenting justices of a decision to off er a recorded opinion and I believe this avenue has helped shape future public policy for the better.” “As we know, members are free to cast their votes in favor or in opposition to a chair’s recommendation and such vote is recorded under the … joint rules,” said Sen. Joan Lovely (D-Salem). “The addition of a minority report could actually create some confusion for the public on trying to discern the intentions of the committee. I therefore ask my colleagues to vote no.” (A “Yes” vote is for allowing a minority report. A “No” vote is against allowing it.) Sen. Lydia Edwards No ALSO UP ON BEACON HILL New bills fi led for consideration in the 2023-2024 session include: GENDER-NEUTRAL BATHROOMS (SD 316) – Would change the state building code to allow gender-neutral bathrooms in new construction and renovations of buildings. Supporters say that sex-segregated restroom facilities fail to accommodate the needs of every person, posing special diffi culty to transgender and gender nonconforming students. They note that research shows that nearly two-thirds of transgender students avoid school bathrooms because they feel unsafe or uncomfortable. “Massachusetts strives to be welcoming to all,” said sponsor Sen. Jo Comerford (D-Northampton). “We were the fi rst state to vote to uphold rights against discrimination for all people. This bill would strengthen those protections in a small but very important way, by reducing daily stress for transgender and gender non-conforming people.” WARNING ON MOBILE PHONES (SD 2327) – Would require all mobile phones sold or leased to disclose, on product packaging, the following notice to consumers: “To assure safety, the Federal Government requires that cell phones meet radio frequency (RF) exposure guidelines. If you carry or use your phone in a pocket or the phone is otherwise in contact with your body when the phone is on and connected to a wireless network, you may exceed the federal guidelines for exposure to RF radiation. Refer to the instructions in your phone or user manual for information about how to use your phone safely.” “Information and knowledge are key to consumer safety, especially when it comes to children,” says sponsor Sen. Julian Cyr (D-Truro). “[The bill] would require disclosures on cell phone packaging that inform consumers of the potential risk of radio frequency exposure and advises cell phone users to review instructions to use their phone safely. Health should always be a priority, and as people, especially young people, spend signifi cant time in close proximity to cell phones, this bill seeks to promote awareness around the safe use of cell phones.” FREE DIAPERS (SD 239) – Would create a pilot program to provide free diapers to low-income families at food pantries. “Access to new, clean diapers is necessary to preserve our babies’ health,” says sponsor Sen. Joan Lovely (D-Salem). “No parent should have to resort to reusing soiled diapers due to an inability to pay or have to undergo further economic hardships to acquire diapers. This legislation puts the well-being of our infants and families where it should be, at the forefront.” PROHIBIT USE OF NATIVE AMERICAN MASCOTS IN PUBLIC SCHOOLS (SD 857) – Would prohibit public schools from using an athletic team name, logo or mascot which names or is associated with Native Americans, or which denigrates any racial, ethnic, gender or religious group. “Passage of this bill is an obligation of justice, a recognition of the common humanity of all and a repair of historic wrong,” says sponsor Sen. Jo Comerford (D-Northampton). “It also addresses the deep psychological harm caused by perpetuating harmful, racist stereotypes—harm caused to both people who are of Native American heritage and those who are not. This bill says that the time has come to say loud and clear to Native Americans who had been on this land for millennia before the Pilgrims landed a mere 400 years ago: ‘You are people, not mascots.’” QUOTABLE QUOTES “We know gun laws save lives. Massachusetts has consistently remained in the lowest three state rankings. As an urban state with the most eff ective gun safety laws, we treat guns like automobiles including renewable licensing, fi rst in the nation consumer protection regulations for the gun industry and the most comprehensive assault weapon ban. It is no coincidence that once again we have the lowest gun death rate in the nation.” --- John Rosenthal, Founder and BEACON | SEE Page 20

Participants could not have open criminal records or histories of violent crime. It was a restorative educational program meant to help homeless residents get back up on their feet. But Arcadia Street residents said the facility would change the character of their neighborhood, where they have invested in their homes and settled their families. They pleaded with the City Council to intervene but were told the council had no say because of the Dover Amendment, a state law which spared the developboys: Isaac, Ian, Isaiah and Jason.

But the neighborhood kept voicing their opposition, and they ultimately swayed the developer. “We are moving ahead with what the neighborhood wants,” said D’Ambrosio. “We are working with private developers to fi nd another site; hopefully, in a part of the city with less push back.” A statement released by Mayor Brian Arrigo regarding the project: “I am disappointed that the proposed project on Arcadia Street, which would have provided much needed housing and support for dozens of Revere residents has been withdrawn. It’s especially disappointing given the vitriol and propaganda spread about the project. The stigma attached to those facing homelessness and substance use disorder is very real and has been on display for the last two weeks in our city. The City of Revere is committed to working with Bay Cove to fi nd the right location and we are dedicated to seeing it through.” THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 24, 2023 OBITUARIES Richard Lupo Page 19 loved being around friends and family and was always eager to help a loved one who needed help.

Maura Healey upon awarding more than $950,000 in grants to six companies under the state’s Recycling and Reuse Business Development Grant program, which will enable Massachusetts recycling companies to expand and grow their operations and increase the amount and quality of recycling in the state. “Adding to employers’ woes is the inability to fully staff their businesses with qualifi ed workers.

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.

Dear Savvy Senior, What are the symptoms of thyroid disease? I’ve been dealing with a number of health issues over the past few years, and a friend of mine recently suggested I get my thyroid checked because it might be causing my problems. Almost 66 Dear Almost, If your thyroid is out of whack, it can cause a number of health issues that can be tricky to detect because the symptoms often resemble other age-related health problems. In fact, as many as 30 million Americans have some form of thyroid disorder, but more than half aren’t aware of it. What to Know The thyroid is a small butterfl y-shaped gland located at the base of your neck that has a huge job. It produces hormones (called T3 and T4) that help regulate the rate of many of your body’s activities, from how quickly you burn calories to how fast your heart beats. It also infl uences the function of the brain, liver, kidneys and skin. If the gland is underactive and doesn’t produce enough thyroid hormones, it causes body systems to slow down. If it’s overactive, and churns out too much thyroid, it has the opposite effect, speeding up the body’s processes. The symptoms for an underactive thyroid (also known as hypothyroidism) – the most common thyroid disorder in older adults – will vary but may include fatigue and weakness, unexplained weight gain, increased sensitivity to cold, constipation, joint pain, a puff y face, hoarseness, thinning hair, muscle stiffness, dry skin and depression. Some patients may even develop an enlarged thyroid (goiter) at the base of the neck. However, in older adults, it can cause other symptoms like memory impairment, loss of appetite, weight loss, falls or even incontinence. And the symptoms of an overactive thyroid (or hyperthyroidism) may include a rapid heart rate, anxiety, irritability, fatigue, insomnia, increased appetite, weight loss, tremors of the hand, frequent bowel movements, sweating, as well as an enlarged thyroid gland. Too much thyroid can also cause atrial fi brillation, affect blood pressure and decrease bone density, which increases the risk of osteoporosis. Those with the greatest risk of developing thyroid disorders are women who have a family history of the disease. Other factors that can trigger thyroid problems include: autoimmune diseases like Hashimoto’s or Graves disease; thyroid surgery; radiation treatments to the neck or upper chest; and certain medications including interferon alpha and interleukin-2 cancer medications, amiodarone heart medication and lithium for bipolar disorder. Get Tested If you have any of the aforementioned symptoms, or if you’ve had previous thyroid problems or notice a lump in the base of your neck, ask your doctor to check your thyroid levels. The TSH (thyroid-stimulating hormone) blood test is used to diagnosis thyroid disorders but depending on what they fi nd, additional blood tests may be necessary. If you are diagnosed with a thyroid problem, it’s easily treated. Standard treatment for hypothyroidism involves daily use of the synthetic thyroid hormone levothyroxine (Levothroid, Synthroid and others), which is an oral medication that restores adequate hormone levels. And treatments for hyperthyroidism may include an anti-thyroid medication such as methimazole and propylthiouracil, which blocks the production of thyroid hormones. Another option is radioactive iodine, which is taken orally and destroys the overactive thyroid cells and causes the gland to shrink. But this can leave the thyroid unable to produce any hormone and it’s likely that you’ll eventually become hypothyroid and need to start taking thyroid medication.

It’s just bizarre to put a high school at the farthest most eastern part of the city,” said Rizzo who added the school should be centrally located and he would never support a high school at Wonderland under any circumstances. Next Monday, the city council’s Ways and Means subcommittee will vote on whether to recommend that the full council approve the building design and its $470,000 budget. Rizzo said people keep talking about education but added committee member aren’t voting on education, they’re voting on a construction project with a serious budget. For Rizzo, fi nancing is key. “When you’re exposing residents to this lawsuit, an unknown that will be decided in court, the numbers have to make sense,” he said. Rizzo suggested giving the property back to the original owners and starting work on the possibility of building the school on its current site. School Building project leaders have repeatedly said that would delay the project by a year, during which construction costs will jump possibly nine percent. But Rizzo sees potential benefi ts in the delay. “We’re in a unique time,” he said. “It’s the highest infl ationary time, interest rates are at an all -time high…” he said. A delay might give the overall economy time to relax and readjust. Like Keefe, Ward 5 Councillor John Powers, a member of the Ways and Means Committee, questions the value of the Wonderland site given its history as a vacant, blighted nuisance for the city. “It’s a very wet area,” said Powers. “I believe the property was not a positive area for a developer. If it was a buildable property, developers would have already come in.” Powers said $100 million was a grossly infl ated price. “I don’t know the answer,” he said, “but we need a new high school.” COMMERCIAL & RESIDENTIAL PROPERTY SALES & RENTALS List with us in the New Year!

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 24, 2023 Page 23 CHURCH | FROM Page 5 ing the transition, and those interested in volunteering can sign up at www.revere.org/volunteer or call First Congregational Church at 781-284-4158. In eff orts to gain interest for volunteers, the Revere Health and Human Services Department is hosting a Day of Service for City of Revere employees to help make the transition from the Food Hub to the Church the last week of March 2023. “When COVID-19 first broke out, our church was overwhelmed with the needs of the food insecure,” said Pastor Tim Bogertman. “The lines stretched from our church’s front door all the way down to the Revere High School parking lot! On top of that, we were concerned about the safety of our volunteers and their exposure to the virus. At that time, the City of Revere stepped in to help us. They relocated us to the temporary location of the Rumney Marsh Academy, and eventually we were moved to our current location at 200 Winthrop Ave. The Mayor’s staff and the City of Revere’s Community Health and Engagement Department partnered with us and provided staff support, fi nancial aid, and other areas of need.” While the Food Pantry has been operating out of 200 Winthrop Ave., a larger vision for the Food Hub and subsequent construction on the building has initiated the need to bring the Food Pantry Distribution back to its original location at First Congregational Church. The distribution will continue to occur on Wednesdays from 6:15–8:00 p.m. However, instead of a drive-thru operation, starting April 5 the Food Pantry will move to a walk-up distribution service. Clients of the Food Pantry will be able to park in two parking lots close to First Congregational Church: • Immaculate Conception’s parking lot (133 Beach St.) • Central Avenue Municipal parking lot It is very important for clients to park only in these two designated locations to ensure the safety of residents and volunteers and the continued ability for the Church to operate. It is also very important for clients to remember to only come during their assigned week that corresponds to the fi rst letter of their last name. This system will continue to be in place after the change of location.

While there may be challenges such as location and property conditions, there is also one challenge that the homeowner can overcome prior to placing their property for sale. That challenge is clutter. The late comedian George Carlin joked about America’s obsession with “stuff.” We see whole industries based on America’s obsession with “stuff.” Self-storage and junk haulers come to mind. Cluttered properties are less attractive for potential buyers. It can be hard to see past the clutter to visualize the potential and imagine the space as their own. Buyers may also be concerned about the cost of removing and disposing of the clutter and potentially dangerous items. Our advice to property owners who plan to sell soon is to begin de-cluttering at least 3 months before offering the property for sale. Waiting to the last minute can cost you a lot more than the value of the “stuff” you want to save. Rentals Available Saugus, 6 rooms, 3 bedroom for $2900.00 3 bedroom in Peabody $3500.00, washer dryer hookup and plenty of parking on both units Call Christine at 603-670-3353 “As the Food Pantry now returns to our church building, we are thankful that the city will continue to assist us. However, we are asking for your help. Volunteers are the backbone of our pantry, so we will need as much help as possible to make this transition a success.
