THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, MARCH 10, 2023 Page 3 Rep. Giannino announces she will not run for Mayor I n a statement released to the press on Tuesday, State RepJESSICA GIANNINO State Representative RevereTV Spotlight M ayor Brian Arrigo announced last week that he would not be running for reelection, ending his years of service as mayor later this year. Last week he spoke of the city’s triumphs and goals throughout his time as mayor in the annual State of the City Address at the auditorium of the Susan B. Anthony and Whelan Schools. This year’s address was rather short compared to in years past. RevereTV streamed the mayor’s speech, as has been done every year, on social media and RTV GOV. You can watch it again at your convenience on RevereTV’s YouTube page. Last week was a popular week in local government meetings. There has been large public attendance at Ways and Means Subcommittee and City Council meetings over the past few months as councillors heard public comment and expert opinion and debated about moving forward on plans to build Revere a new high school. The building plans and process discussion has been taking place at meetings over the past few years and ramped up as they tried to meet certain deadlines this month. The plans were voted favorably out of subcommittee last week, and the resentative Jessica Giannino announced she would not seek election for Mayor. The recently appointed House Vice Chair of the Joint Committee on Children, Families and Persons with Disabilities stated, “I am humbled by the calls and messages of support encouraging me to run for mayor. I love my job as State Representative, and believe I can serve the people of Revere best in the House. I am thankful to Speaker Mariano for appointing me to a leadership position and I am eager to get to work on legislation to improve the quality of life for the residents of my district and the Commonwealth.” offi cial vote of the City Council to approve or disapprove was held right after. You can watch the Revere City Council vote on this matter as well as other agenda items as the meetings replay on RTV GOV and remain posted on YouTube. You might be familiar with RevereTV’s public service announcement postings called “In the Loop.” These are announcements based on city fl yers posted the week of recording and include information about initiatives, events and programs around Revere. The latest recording of “In the Loop” is a message about road construction happening in Beachmont. This week you will see a similar announcement series called “Focus on Health Minute.” These short minute-long videos are like the “In the Loop” PSAs, but they are actually a spin off from the Board of Health’s monthly program called “Focus on Health.” Instead of the half-hour long interview style show, these recordings will be focused on a public health issue and summarized and explained in a brief minute. The “Focus on Health Minute” will also be posted to RevereTV’s YouTube page and will be played in between programming on RTV. Lawrence A.

Page 4 THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, MARCH 10, 2023 Cambridge Health Alliance’s Revere Mobile Market Celebrates Its Fifth Anniversary REVERE, Mass.— On Saturday, March 4, the Cambridge Health Alliance Revere Mobile Market celebrated its fifth anniversary. Since 2018, the community health system has held a monthly produce market at the CHA Revere Care Center (454 Broadway) to distribute fresh produce for free to CHA patients and local residents. Volunteers braved freezing rain, then snow as they assembled food into bags supplied by Tufts Health Plan, a Point32Health company. More than 400 households received eight different types of fruit and vegetables and three non-perishable items supplied by the Greater Boston Food Bank (GBFB). After the market, volunteers and local offi cials honored the many people who have made the market happen. Revere Mayor Brian Arrigo kicked off the celebration by speaking to the valued partnership with Cambridge Health Alliance staff , local offi cials, community partners, and volunteers celebrated the fi fth anniversary of the CHA Revere Mobile Market on March 4, 2023.

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, MARCH 10, 2023 Page 5 Debate continues over new High School following City Council’s vote By Barbara Taormina A crowd of students, RHS graduates, educators, school staff , parents, city offi cials and taxpayers fi lled the City Council Chambers this week to plead with city councillors to build a new high school. Some asked councillors to return to the plan to build the school at Wonderland, which the council voted down last week. Others insisted it would be less expensive to build at Wonderland rather than the existing site as several councillors have proposed. They all shared concerns about Revere High School losing its accreditation and the impact that would have on students applying to colleges. There were warnings about students leaving for private schools, teachers looking for jobs in other communities and property values plummeting because of the state of education in Revere. Councillors, who have always supported building a new high school, shared the same concerns expressed by the community. But what triggered them was the suggestion that the decision to vote against submitting the schematic design to the Massachusetts School Building Authority (MSBA) for approval was political. Revere Teachers Association Co-President Michelle Ervin, who stressed she was speaking as an educator not as a union rep, asked councillors to put the politics aside. “This has become a political issue. You’ve made it political,” Erwin told councillors. You’ve already voted on a place. Put the politics aside and think about the education of the children in your city.” Councillors, one by one, reiterated their commitment to building a new school, and they insisted that voting against the schematic designs at Wonderland was not a political decision. Ward 1 Councillor Joanne McKenna said she agonized over her no vote for a month. “It wasn’t political for me; there was no financial conclusion,” said McKenna, adding that every week the cost of the project changed by millions of dollars. Councillor-at-Large Dan Rizzo said the budget for the project has been a moving target, saying that the job of the City Council is to provide fi scal oversight. “There’s a lot of fear mongering going on trying to scare people that they have a City Council that doesn’t care about education and a school will never be built. We need to get rid of the public discourse we’ve seen over the past week,’ said Rizzo. Ward 3 Councillor Anthony Cogliandro said he had witnessed threats to Councillor McKenna. “That behavior needs to absolutely 100 percent stop,” he said. “We didn’t deserve the attacks on our character, the attacks on our families,” said Councillor-atLarge Gerry Visconti. “It seems as if some things have not been put out there. We all want a high school. It’s a false narrative to say the Revere City Council does not want a high school.” Visconti, like other councillors, said the issue is fi nances and the unknown cost of the Wonderland site. But Mayor Brian Arrigo and senior project manager Brian Dakin said building on the existing site would be more expensive. According to Dakin, it would cost $65 million more to build on the current site. City Council President Patrick Keefe said city offi cials have deliberated on the site for the school for about two years. “We found that the least imperfect site was Wonderland. Over that time, costs have escalated,” said Keefe, adding that the choice of Wonderland showed vision. Keefe also said the council had heard from CFO Richard Viscay about strategies to pay for the project without a 2 1/2 override. Gerry D’Ambrosio Attorney-at-Law Is Your Estate in Order? Do you have an update Will, Health Care Proxy or Power of Attorney? If Not, Please Call for a Free Consultation. 14 Proctor Avenue, Revere (781) 284-5657 “We are n ot going to have an override. We can aff ord it. Yes, we have to make sacrifi ces, but yes, we will make them for the city of Revere,” said Keefe. “I will do anything it takes to bring Wonderland back on board.” The council will make a clear decision about the site and the path forward for the high school at their next meeting in two weeks.

The cadets from Revere High School have proven their ability to overcome and succeed despite those obstacles. After advancing through two intense phases of online competition, Revere High School’s JROTC Academic Team composed of Cadets Karla Leal, Paris Peguero Pena, Brianna Restrepo and Annabelle SandyRoche will compete in a Championship event in Washington, DC. The 2023 U.S. Army JROTC Academic Bowl Championship will be held on the campus of The Catholic University of America, June 23-27, 2023. This event is sponsored by the U.S. Army Cadet Command and is conducted by College Options Foundation. Revere High School’s JROTC team earned top scores out of the 1,844 Army JROTC academic teams that competed from around the world. The team is one of only thirty-two Army JROTC Academic Bowl teams in the nation to advance to the fi - nal competition, which includes an all-expense paid trip to the Championship event in Washington, DC. During the two fast-paced preliminary rounds, cadets were tested on their knowledge of core curriculum such as math, science, and language arts as well as current events, citizenship, leadership skills, and financial literacy. Financial literacy videos are sponsored by the USAA Educational Foundation and provided to all cadets. Questions from the videos were included in Levels I and II of the VACANT | FROM Page 1 for new vision and leadership. As a result, I am announcing my candidacy for mayor,” Visconti said in a written statement released this week. Visconti said he regretted that the vitriol and tone of national politics has made its way to the local level. “If given the opportunity, I will be a mayor for each and every Revere resident, whether it be a lifelong resident or a new resident that chose this city to call home. Visconti said he looks forward to talking with residents and sharing his vision. “I want to be the candidate to get us past political divisions, working together for a better Revere. online competition. The JROTC Leadership & Academic Bowl is a nationally recognized competition created exclusively for JROTC students. By participating, cadets learn the values of citizenship, academic competition, and college opportunity. The competition creates tremendous opportunities for JROTC cadets by allowing them to demonstrate leadership and academic abilities. College Options Foundation is a non-profi t organization dedicated to enriching the academic development of high school students and assisting them in their preparation for higher education. Using academic competitions, college exam study guides, college admissions tutorials, and personalized counseling, College Options Foundation has assisted the nation’s JROTC cadets worldwide for nearly two decades. Keefe and Visconti often work collaboratively on the council, but they diff er on what will no doubt be the headlining issue in upcoming campaigns: the new high school. Keefe has passionately declared he would do what it takes to get the plan to build the new high school at wonderland back on track despite the council’s decision to vote the plan down. While Visconti also fully supports a new high school, he has insisted that the city make fi nancially responsible choices about the project. It has been speculated that Councillor-at-Large Steve Morabito has also expressed his intentions to toss his hat into the mayoral race as well.

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, MARCH 10, 2023 Page 7 Carlo DeMaria, Jr. vs. Everett Leader Herald, Sergio Cornelio, Joshua Resnek, Matthew Philbin and Andrew Philbin, Sr. New Year – Same Problems; Leader-Herald Newspaper Owner Faces Further Questions By James Mitchell When asked about the news(Editor’s Note: This article was published in the Everett Advocate on Feb. 17, 2021) E verett Leader Herald owner Matthew Philbin awaits another day of deposition after his recent deposition with attorneys for Mayor Carlo DeMaria on January 18, 2023, at the Boston law offi ces of Saul Ewing Arnstein & Lehr LLP was cut short. Philbin, along with his Attorney, Kevin Polansky, answered questions posed by Atty. Jeff rey Robbins, the mayor’s lead attorney in the lawsuit which began back in 2022. In 2022, the court ruled that the lawsuit can be expanded back to 2017 following evidence presented by DeMaria’s attorneys of defamatory articles published about DeMaria dating back years. Philbin’s testimony shed light on the newspaper’s dire fi nances when he admitted to needing to fund the newspaper out of pocket as the free weekly newspaper could not draw advertising revenue to even come close to paying the paper’s expenses. Philbin, in his sworn testimony, stated that he hoped that his corrupt publisher/reporter Joshua Resnek would liven up the newspaper’s content in order to draw potential advertisers. Since purchasing the newspaper in 2017, Philbin stated, he hired Resnek to handle the fi nances for the company, Dorchester Publications LLC, (Everett Leader Herald), as well as write the content. He then claimed that he never kept track of the fi nances of the company – stating that he paid no attention to the newspaper’s fi nances from 2019 through 2021, stating that Resnek was in charge of that. “My question is, you’ve paid no attention to the income, the revenue that’s come into Dorchester Publications in 2019, 2020, 2021? That’s your testimony?” asked the attorney. “You have to be more specifi c,” replied Philbin. “I can’t be,” stated Robbins. Asked if he knew the defi nitions of “money” and “revenue”, Philbin admitted that he did, providing his defi nition. When he was asked once again if he kept track of the revenue that was coming into Dorchester Publications in 2019, Philbin testifi ed that he “looked at it” – just like he admitted to doing in 2020, 2021 and 2022. Philbin responded in kind to tracking the expenses and net income from 2019 through 2022 as well. paper hemorrhaging money since almost the entire time he’s owned it, Philbin admitted that the newspaper lost approximately $50,000-$75,000 per or even more. His best estimate for 2019 and 2022, according to Philbin: It might have lost closer to $100,000. “So, by my rough calculation, it has lost about somewhere between 4 and $500,000 between 2018 and the end of 2022; correct?” asked Robbins. “Yeah, in around there,” replied Philbin. Philbin admitted that he personally had to cover the loss of approximately half a million dollars out of his own pocket since 2018 in order to keep the newspaper running. “So you knew that it was losing money every month, correct?” asked Robbins. “Yes,” replied Philbin. “And every month, in fact, you had to provide the funds to pay the expenses out of your own personal pocket, correct?” “Yes,” replied Philbin. Philbin, when asked if he knew the gross revenues and expenses for the newspaper from 2018 to 2021, stated that he didn’t remember. When asked for an approximate percentage of the newspaper’s expenses he paid in 2018, Philbin stated he didn’t know but did admit, once again, that the expenses were paid for with his own personal funds. Philbin claimed that Resnek kept track of the expenses and revenue for the newspaper company, from which he would receive reports. He also stated, that the bookkeeper kept track through QuickBooks. Philbin then testifi ed that his former employee, Elena Vega would keep track of the thousands of dollars he would use to help fund the newspaper, reporting to him directly. Atty. Robbins asked Philbin if he was aware of any cash being used to fund the newspaper. Philbin stated that there could have been cash, along with checks “that would come in through the front door.” Philbin again was asked if he was aware that Resnek was soliciting cash for the newspaper or that there was any plan to generate cash infusions, which he would deny, but then he admitted to receiving an email about how Resnek was going to raise money and increase advertising and cut costs. Resnek provided Philbin a plan to obtain thousands of dollars to cover the printing and delivery of the newspapers leading up to the 2021 election. Resnek said that he had three persons, Mr. A, Mr. B and Mr. C, who would bank roll the newspaper at $5,000 apiece. In an email to a friend, Resnek said that he would meet a man in a Mercedes-Benz at a Main Street restaurant and pickup thousands of dollars in cash from someone who supported the mayor’s challenger, Fred Capone. According to Philbin, as advertising revenue continually declined, especially during the Covid pandemic, he applied for and received for two Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loans in 2020 and 2021, totaling approximately $20,000, which was forgiven by the government. Philbin stated that he used the money to meet the newspaper’s expenses. “And I assume that when you told the government that you needed taxpayers’ money to help keep the newspaper afl oat, you were telling the truth; right?” asked Robbins. “Yes,” replied Philbin, who admitted to signing the application for the two PPP loans. Atty. Robbins asked if the loan was used to pay the rent at the Church Street offi ce; Philbin stated that he couldn’t recall and that it could have been for publishing the newspaper. Philbin, along with his brother, Andrew Philbin, Jr., are the owners of the Church Street building where the newspaper offi ce is located, along with apartments, under the name Philbin Realty Group. Philbin said he couldn’t recall the cost and number of copies that were printed each week as he left that up to Resnek, although he agreed that if the number of copies went up that the costs would go up and he would have to fi nd the money to pay for the increase. “And you were having trouble funding the printing and the delivery of newspapers at a static level in 2020 and 2021. Fair to say?” asked the attorney. “I guess that’s fair to say,” he said. Philbin would then cut back on staffi ng, from his VP of Operations, Elena Vega, who stated that the Leader Herald was not a real newspaper, to his executive secretary. Philbin would continue to pay his wife her $90K salary despite her not being present at the offi ce, according to one of his former staff members. The newspaper’s former photographer and graphic designer, James Mahoney, testifi ed in his deposition that Philbin was in complete control over the newspaper’s content, editing and fi - nal edits. According to Mahoney, once Philbin approved the fi nal draft, it was sent to the printers. “Did Mr. Resnek ever suggest to you that Mr. Philbin’s approval of the newspaper was not necessary?” asked Atty. Robbins. “Never to my recollection. I have fairly distinct memories of that time frame of Mr. Resnek always saying, hang on, you know, Mr. Philbin needs to see it,” said Mahoney. Mahoney was shown complaint exhibits where Philbin denies any involvement “in the reviewing, editing or approving the alleged defamatory statements” in the newspaper’s publication. “It appears not to be a true statement,” stated Mahoney. On numerous occasions during his testimony, Mahoney stated that Philbin was always involved in the matters of the newspaper’s production, from the editing and proofi ng of the articles to the fi nal drafts of the complete edition before it went to press. Philbin is expected to appear again for his next deposition in the near future.

Page 8 THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, MARCH 10, 2023 ~ LETTER TO THE EDITOR ~ Northeast Metropolitan Technical School District’s Bait and Switch Cannot Stand Dear Editor, Friends of the Middlesex Fells Reservation is dedicated to the conservation, appreciation, and sustainable enjoyment of the Fells. We have long been interested in preservation of open public land. We are deeply concerned about: • the Northeast Metropolitan Technical School District’s (NEMT’s) plans for a new facility to be sited on a forested hilltop site rather than a more accessible site on existing playing fi elds, • the lack of transparency in the site selection process, and • the lack of information provided to residents when they voted regarding the Building Committee’s final siting decision and lack of a separate ballot question on this signifi cant decision. In the site plans approved by the Building Subcommittee but revealed only after the 2022 Special Election, instead of using an existing road as access to “the site” abutting it, an entirely new entrance and one-half mile access road would be constructed next to wetlands, then carved through rock ledge, to a perched site scoured of trees and other living things, then blasted extensively to remove the hilltop covering many acres, creating a new “footprint” 60feet above student parking and other student access to the new building. For the January 2022 Special Election, information posted on the NEMT’s own website as well as reporting in The Boston Globe did not disclose that the Building Committee no longer intended to use the specifi c building site as recommended by the design consultant. Instead, the term “site” then began to be employed to mean “somewhere generally on the entire 60-acre site,” even though NEMT’s public-facing plans still showed the site as the playing fi eld. Similarly, the materials circulated in support of the ballot item lacked suffi cient detail for the public to know that the Forest was targeted. A signifi cant number of our members are residents and voters in the communities ultimately providing funding for site preparation and building construction, including cost overruns and other contingent expenses to maintain a completed project and comply with state and federal code, such as accessibility accommodations under Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) and their continuing upkeep in all weather conditions from Hemlock Road to the new “site.” The issue presented on the ballot was a matter of the financing, whether to accept funds from the Massachusetts School Building Authority and support the balance from the school systems served by NEMT. The need for the “New Voke” was supported by the longstanding pre-feasibility recommendation. Since the only documentation about the plan for the school was the pre-feasibility recommendation of using the playing fi elds, voters that were paying attention would reasonably believe that was the intent. For the NEMT to then publicize their more fi nancially and environmentally costly plan only after the vote can only be described as a bait and switch maneuver. We stand with the Sierra Club-Massachusetts in its recent letter to the Massachusetts School Building Authority detailing the environmental value of this hilltop forest. The NEMT must also consider the quantifi able environmental services provided by a mature upland forest and the other benefi ts to human habitation it confers. It provides shade that cools ambient air temperatures for the surrounding areas, serves as a windbreak to extreme winds, presents structures and features that aid stormwater retention, erosion control, and groundwater recharge during extreme weather events, and provides a ready means for exchange and sequestration of atmospheric carbon, all in addition to the preserving relative tranquility and enjoyment of place by neighbors and the community at-large. On behalf of our members, we join with the many voices opposing the current site plan. A well designed, suitably sited, and solidly constructed “New Voke” should be built on the fi rst site proposed, with traffi c access via the existing improved right of way, Hemlock Road.

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, MARCH 10, 2023 Page 9 RHS JROTC Dill Team Challenge Division were Overall Unarmed Division Champions at the 2nd Brigade Drill Championship in Medford, N.J. T he Revere High School (RHS) Army Junior Reserve Offi cers' Training Corps (JROTC) Patriot Battalion Drill and Color Guard teams competed in three Drill Competitions in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts Army League (COMAL) Drill League. COMAL consists of the 11 Massachusetts Army JROTC Programs throughout the state (Brockton, CASH, East Boston, English, Commerce, Lawrence, Methuen, New Bedford, Revere, South Boston and Wareham). Drill and Ceremonies is one of the key ingredients of the Army JROTC Program. Drill is conducted in accordance with current Army Training Circular 3-21.5, Drill and Ceremonies, dated May 3, 2021, which is the Army standard for executing the Manual of Arms. This category also includes Exhibition drill in accordance with brigade-published standards. The RHS JROTC Drill Team is subdivided into the Armed Division and the Unarmed Division. Within each division, cadets compete in Color Guard, Regulation, Inspection, Dual Exhibition, Platoon Exhibition and New Cadet Squad. In the Armed Division, Revere placed first overall in Color Guard and Regulation and second overall in Inspection. In the Unarmed Division, Revere placed fi rst in Regulation and Inspection and third in Color Guard. The RHS Army JROTC Drill Team was awarded the Governor’s cup and as the first-place team overall in the COMAL league received a bid to compete in the 2nd Brigade Drill Competition at Lenape High School in Medford, NJ. This is the Drill Team’s fi fth COMAL League Championship, marking their Quintuple Championship (Previous years: SY2015-2016, SY20162017, SY2017-2018, SY20182019 and SY2022-2023). The RHS Army JROTC Drill Commander, Cadet Ryan Willett, led this team to victory. The unarmed drill team is coached by SFC (R) James Burke, and the armed drill team is coached by CSM (R) Robert Callender. The dedication and commitment of all cadets led to their tremendous accomplishments. On Friday, March 3, 2023, 54 RHS JROTC Drill Team cadets departed for the 2nd Brigade Drill Competition at Lenape High School in Medford, N.J. Ten cadets participated in the 2nd Brigade Army Academic Bowl, and 44 cadets participated in the Drill Competition. The RHS Army JROTC Drill Team in the Challenge Division were the Overall Unarmed Division Champions in the 2nd Brigade Drill Championship in Medford, N.J. In the Unarmed Division, Revere placed first in Unarmed Exhibition, commanded by Cadet Anna Sa. They placed second in Unarmed Inspection, commanded by Cadet Paris Peguero-Pena, and Color Guard, commanded by Cadet Gavin Rua. Individual awards during knock-out were presented in the Unarmed Division to Cadets Harrison Rua, Katelyn Giovanniello and Aya Belgseisse.

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, MARCH 10, 2023 Page 11 Singling out the stars after another competitive hoop season Everett, Malden, Revere boys basketball players make their mark in the GBL By Joe McConnell A s the high school state tournament boys basketball brackets shrink to a precious few teams, who are now getting ready for their Elite 8 games, or the Round of 8, as the Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association (MIAA) calls them, respective leagues have been announcing their all-star teams, as well as individual awards to their most outstanding individual players and coaches. The Greater Boston League (GBL) is no exception. Crimson Tide trio earns star status Senior guards Steven Cordero, Kevin Ruiz and David DeSouza completed their scholastic hoop careers on this always prestigious squad. Coach Stanley Chamblain could always count on Cordero to consistently be one of the team’s leading scorers, while Ruiz and DeSouza also did their part to spark the off ense at crucial times during the season. As a team, they were 9-5 in the GBL, and 10-10 overall to qualify for the Division 1 state tournament, where they lost to Attleboro in a preliminary round game, 67-55. Patriots fi nish season strong with two all-stars in the lead Revere coach Dave Leary’s team also ended up 10-10 overall after a late regular-season surge. They carried that momentum over to the Division 2 state tournament, where they upset Plymouth South, the 27th seed, 55-50, before bowing out to Nashoba Regional, the sixth seed, in a Round of 32 game, 71-40. Off the court, the Basketball Patriots were honored with two league all-stars: senior forward Domenic Boudreau and senior guard Alejandro Hincapie. Golden Tornadoes complete winning season with two allstars Malden veteran boys basketball BASKETBALL | SEE Page 19 Season ends for Revere boys in Round of 32 By Greg Phipps F inishing with a.500 overall record may not seem like much of an accomplishment. But considering where the Revere High School boys’ basketball team stood about a month ago, the 2022-23 season will be looked upon as a resurgent one for the Patriots. With six games to go in the season, Revere was 5-9 and any chance for a playoff berth appeared unlikely and remote at best. But the Patriots regrouped to win fi ve of their last six regular-season games. As a result, they fi nished with 10 wins, enough to earn them a low seed (the 38th spot) in the Div. 2 state tournament. Revere added to the late-season momentum by scoring a come-from-behind 55-50 preliminary-round victory on the road over No. 27 Plymouth South early last week. The resurgence came to a halt last Thursday night when the Patriots ran up against a powerful sixth-seeded Nashoba Regional squad in the Round of 32 and were defeated by a 71-40 score. Senior co-captain Domenic Boudreau continued his fi ne play by providing another double-double performance. He poured in 21 points (more than half the team’s total for the game) and grabbed 10 rebounds, as well as blocking two shots. Afterwards, Head Coach David Leary said he was “very proud” of his team and added that the Patriots showed no quit all season despite having to cope with midseason injuries to key players. He also thanked the parents, families and fans for their support during the year. The Nashoba loss left Revere with an 11-11 overall mark for the season. Revere will lose several key seniors, including Boudreau and fellow captain Alejandro Hincapie, Sal DeAngelis, Vinny Vu and Vincent Nichols. Both Boudreau and Hincapie were also named to this year’s Greater Boston League all-star team. Looking forward to next year, junior Luke Ellis and sophomore Ethan Day are two of the players Revere will be counting on in 2023-24. Point of Pines fire station back on track with $6.4M loan order By Barbara Taormina C ity CFO Richard Viscay was at the City Council meeting this week with a loan order for $6.4 for the Point of Pines fi re station. “This is the fi nal amount we will need to begin construction of the new Point of Pines fi re station,” Viscay told the council. “It includes everything, the entire project as bid out by the project manager.” Back in the summer of 2019, a feasibility study was completed, and a $9.2 million bond was issued. A year later the existing fi re station was demolished. But along the way the Massachusetts Environmental Protection Agency stepped in with an appeal and notifi cation that the agency was assuming jurisdiction over project due to fl ooding concerns. But last summer, after a site visit with local offi - cials, DEP withdrew their appeal and left the conditions of the Revere Conservation Commission in place. Winter Street architects updated the plan to refl ect the resiliency of the building regarding any fl ooding concerns. Now, the plan and the $6.4 million loan order will head to a public hearing. Council approves special permit to raze Shirley Ave. building City councillors approved a special permit for Shirley Avenue, LLC to raze the existing non-conforming building at 163 Shirley Ave. and replace it with a new four-story mixed-use non-conforming building. Attorney Lawrence Simeone presented an update on the project to the council. Simeone said a lot of time and planning had gone into the project. “I think we’ve got it right. We listened to issued raised by the neighbors.” Ward 2 City Councillor Ira Novoselsky, who lives in and represents the neighborhood, helped develop a list of 26 conditions that refl ected concerns of abutters and neighbors concerned about privacy and space. Simeone explained that the plan had been scaled back from a five-story building to four stories. The ground fl oor with have two commercial units and the remaining fl oors will be residential with 14 studio units and 10 one-bedroom apartments. There were conditions about the removal of large trees, the placement of windows and fencing around the new building. “It was great to see comprotinues the transformation of Shirley Ave.” Fellow city councillors were pleased to hear that the developer had worked so closely with neighbors and the ward councillor. “Thank you for listening to the neighborhood and doing the right thing,” said Ward 1 Councillor Joanne McKenna. Other councillors said they would vote in favor of the special permit because it had Novoselsky’s support. “Architect David Barsky has designed most of the new buildings on Shirley Ave. It’s completely revitalized the area,” said Novoselsky. ~ HELP WANTED ~ FULL TIME DRIVER WANTED MONDAY – FRIDAY; 8:00 AM – 4:00 PM SCRUBBING BOARD 104 HANCOCK ST EVERETT * 617-387-4838 Need a hall for your special event?

Page 14 THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, MARCH 10, 2023 tions in their schools but are not receiving any additional educational aid from the state. Sponsor Sen. John Velis (D-WestBy Bob Katzen Donating Your Body to Science Dear Savvy Senior, I am interested in possibly donating my body to science when I pass away. What can you tell me about this, and what would I need to do to set it up? Getting Old Dear Getting, If you’re looking to help advance medical research, and in the process, eliminate your funeral and burial costs, donating your body to science is a great option to consider. Here’s what you should know. Body Donations Each year, it’s estimated that approximately 20,000 people donate their whole body, after death, to medical facilities throughout the country to be used in medical research projects, anatomy lessons and surgical practice. After using your body, these facilities will then provide free cremation and will either bury or scatter your ashes in a local cemetery or return them to your family, usually within a year. And, just in case you’re wondering, your family cannot not be paid for the use of your body. Federal and state laws prohibit it. Here are a few other things you need to know and check into, to help you determine whether whole-body donation is right for you: • Donation denial: Most body donation programs will not accept bodies that are extremely obese, or those that have infectious diseases like hepatitis, tuberculosis, H.I.V. or MRSA. Bodies that suff ered extensive trauma won’t be accepted either. • Organ donation: Most medical school programs require that you donate your whole body in its entirety. So, if you want to be an organ donor (with the exception of your eyes), you probably won’t qualify to be a whole-body donor too. • Religious considerations: Most major religions permit individuals to donate both their full body and organs, and many even encourage it. If you are unsure, you should consult with your pastor or spiritual adviser. • Special requests: Most programs will not allow you to donate your body for a specifi c purpose. You give them the body and they decide how to use it. • Memorial options: Most programs require almost immediate transport of the body after death, so there’s no funeral. If your family wants a memorial service, they can have one without the body. Or, some programs off er memorial services at their facility at a later date without the remains. • Body transporting: Most programs will cover transporting your body to their facility within a certain distance. However, some may charge a fee. How to Proceed If you think you want to donate your body, it’s best to make arrangements in advance with a body donation program in your area. Most programs are off ered through university-affiliated medical schools. To fi nd one near you, the University of Florida maintains a list of U.S. programs and their contact information at Anatbd. acb.med.ufl .edu/usprograms. If you don’t have Internet access, you can get help by calling the whole-body donation referral service during business hours at 800-727-0700. In addition to the medical schools, there are also private organizations like Science Care (ScienceCare.com) and Anatomy Gifts Registry (AnatomyGifts. org) that accept whole body donations too. Some of these organizations will even allow organ donation because they deal in body parts as well as whole cadavers. Once you locate a program in your area, call and ask them to mail you an information/registration packet that will explain exactly how their program works. To sign up, you’ll need to fi ll out a couple of forms and return them. But you can always change your mind by contacting the program and removing your name from their registration list. Some programs may ask that you make your withdrawal in writing. After you’ve made arrangements, you’ll need to tell your family members so they will know what to do and who to call after your death.

There were no roll calls in the Senate last week. $353 MILLION SUPPLEMENTAL BUDGET (H 57) House 153-0, approved and sent to the Senate a $353 million fi scal 2023 supplemental budget. Provisions include $86 million for the emergency shelter system to help off set medical costs for migrant families going to emergency rooms for shelter and assistance; $130 million to keep expanded nutrition assistance in place for a few more months; $65 million for the universal school meals program; and provisions to keep some pandemic-era programs, set to expire, in place including allowing restaurants to sell beer, wine and cocktails for take-out and expanding outdoor dining from April 1, 2023 to April 1, 2024. Another provision extends the authority, set to expire in a few weeks, for public bodies, agencies and commissions to hold their meetings remotely until March 31, 2025. “The package … covers a number of diff erent areas that all require our immediate attention,” said House Ways and Means Committee chair Rep. Aaron Michlewitz (D-Boston). “This modest proposal addresses some of the pressing needs the commonwealth is facing currently. As we begin this legislative session, we are on a quick time frame for some of these programs and this spending bill is one that we need to move fairly quickly to ensure our people receive the services they need.” “The migrant crisis our commonwealth has been facing with these last couple of months has put our will to the test,” continued Michlewitz. “While Washington continues to struggle with fi nding a reasonable compromise on a broken immigration system, it is the state and our municipalities that have been forced to pick up the pieces.” (A “Yes” vote is for the budget.) Rep. Jessica Giannino Yes Rep. Jeff Turco Yes ALSO UP ON BEACON HILL – A look at some bills fi led for consideration in the new 2023-2024 Legislature: BABY BONDS (SD 711) – Would create a Baby Bonds program in Massachusetts to provide funds at birth to certain low-income residents which can be accessed when the account holder turns 18 to support asset-building activities such as post-secondary education, homebuying or investing in a business. “I am proud to have fi led [this bill] to start building an eff ective and transformational baby bonds program in the commonwealth that will build wealth from the bottom up, and the middle out, to put hardworking residents on a trajectory for wealth-creation from day one,” said sponsor Sen. Paul Feeney (D-Foxborough). “By automatically investing from day one of a child’s life, we are providing a jump-start to individuals otherwise at a disadvantage by beginning to narrow the racial wealth gap and giving our poorest residents a fi ghting shot at the middle class and the American Dream.” CHOREOGRAPHER LAUREATE (SD 2382) – Would create a new state position of Choreographer Laureate to encourage participation in the arts, elevate the dance legacy and current dance in Bay State communities and choreograph performances for important state events and ceremonies. “In my decades as a dancer and choreographer, I’ve witnessed the power of dance and movement to bring people together, and to embrace the joy and diversity of humanity,” said sponsor said Sen. Becca Rausch (D-Needham). “I fi led this bill to help spread that joy and appreciation throughout the commonwealth and uplift the importance of the arts and cultural exchange in our communities.” IMMIGRANTS IN SCHOOLS (SD 2412) – Would require the Department of Education to establish an assistance program for cities and towns that are experiencing sudden infl uxes of immigrant populafi eld) said that he fi led the measure to start an important conversation on how we can assist municipalities that are seeing a sudden infl ux of population in their school districts. “I am pleased that Gov. Healey has also recognized this issue and set aside funding in her supplemental budget to help schools take care of these students. This is a working bill and I look forward to continuing to collaborate with my colleagues to ensure our municipalities have the resources they need.” ACTIVE SHOOTER (SD 157) – Would require the state to adopt the National Fire Protection Association’s standard guidelines for active shooter or hostile events. The bill also establishes an Executive Council comprised of representatives of fi re fi ghters, EMS and law enforcement agencies to develop best practices for all elements of active-shooter response situations. “In recent years, our country has been presented with greater risks and threats when it comes to active shooter situations,” said sponsor Sen. Patrick O’Connor (R-Weymouth). “We are fortunate that here in Massachusetts, we have been proactive and collaborative about protecting the safety of all residents. This legislation seeks to ensure that we remain ahead of the curve and keep our residents safe well into the future.” MAKE ELECTION DAY A LEGAL HOLIDAY (SD 353) – Would make Election Day, every two years, a statewide holiday and provide people who cannot take the holiday off because they are Election Day workers or perform other essential work, with two hours paid voting leave. “The ability to vote is the foundation of our democracy,” said sponsor Sen. Becca Rausch (D-Needham). “For economically vulnerable communities, the question of voting oftentimes comes down to missing hours at work, holding onto a job or earning pay they rely on to put food on the table. My bill to establish Election Day as a holiday gives voters the greatest fl exibility to cast their ballot and make their voices heard.” QUOTABLE QUOTES – Gov. Maura Healey released a proposed $55.5 billion fiscal 2024 state budget. Here’s what they are saying about it. “Our … budget is what Massachusetts needs to meet this moment and build a strong economy, livable communities and a sustainable future. Combined with our tax relief proposal, we will set Massachusetts up for success by lowering costs, growing our competitiveness and delivering on the promise of our people. Additionally, we are taking aggressive action to address our housing crisis by creating the Executive Offi ce of Housing and Livable Communities led by a housing secretary who will coordinate across BEACON | SEE Page 16

Maura Healey. “Hang onto your wallets. Gov. Maura Healey’s budget will cost you. A $55.5 billion dollar proposed budget, which is 14 percent higher than [ex-Gov. Charlie Baker’s] budget proposed last year. If Question 1 didn’t scare away the taxpayers, a 14 percent increase to state spending certainly will. This budget doesn’t include broad based tax cuts and tax eliminations that Massachusetts desperately needs to compete with states like New Hampshire and Florida. Instead, it explodes state spending, which seems to be rife with abuse by adding generously to payroll expenses, new bureaucracies and giveaways.” ---Paul Craney, a spokesman for the Massachusetts Fiscal Alliance. “We thank the Healey-Driscoll administration for a … budget that makes signifi cant and important investments in Jewish communal priorities. Today’s budget provides $1.5 million in vital funding for nonprofit security grants, $1.5 million in the Genocide Education Trust Fund and builds towards greater economic security.” ---From a press release from the Jewish Community Relations Council of Greater Boston. “While the governor’s budget proposes several meaningful new initiatives, it doesn’t come close to making the investments necessary to address our workforce challenges, tackle our broken childcare system, end the housing aff ordability crisis or fi x the MBTA and build a 21st century statewide transportation system. Instead, a massive permanent tax cut for the wealthy would most likely lead to catastrophic budget cuts the next time we hit a recession.” ---Andrew Farnitano, spokesman for Raise Up MA Coalition that spearheaded the successful November 2022 ballot question requiring taxpayers who earn more than - LEGAL NOTICE -                                     D          To all interested persons:                      of   requesting that the Court enter a formal Decree and Order and for such other relief as requested in the Petition.

Healey’s … budget proposal includes several positive elements that begin to address the new competitive challenges Massachusetts employers are facing, but rehabilitating Massachusetts’ declining business climate will require far more signifi cant steps.” --- Chris Anderson, President of the Massachusetts High Technology Council. “The fi ling of Gov. Healey’s fi rst budget proposal comes at a critical time for the commonwealth. With pandemic-era federal support ending for many programs, it is imperative that we set clear priorities to ensure that state spending is maintained at sustainable levels. I look forward to reading through the governor’s budget in more detail and following the upcoming Ways and Means budget hearings to get a better understanding of what her proposal entails.” ---GOP House Minority Leader Rep. Brad Jones (R-North Reading). 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 27-March 3, the House met for a total of fi ve hours and four minutes while the Senate met for a total of four minutes. Mon. Feb. 27 House 11:03 a.m. to 11:13 a.m. Senate 11:36 a.m. to 11:37 a.m. Tues. Feb. 28 No House session No Senate session Wed. March 1 House 11:01 a.m. to 3:51 p.m. No Senate session Thurs.

There can be no question that smoke and carbon monoxide detectors can save lives. You will not be able to transfer your deed, even if the house is to be remodeled or even demolished by the new owner, unless the smoke/carbon detectors are complaint with state and local regulations at the time the deed is transferred. Regulations vary from community to community but in general there must be a combination smoke/carbon detector on each floor. Some communities require just a smoke detector only within 10' of a bedroom, while others require one in each bedroom. It is always best to consult your local fire inspector to determine what the requirements are for your community.We at MANGOalways assist our clients in this important aspect of a transaction, but it is wise to make sure you are up to code regardless of whether you are selling your home or not.
