(Advocate fi le photo) Date set for RHS graduation at Della Russo Stadium By Adam Swift T here will be a return of Pomp and Circumstance for the Revere High School graduation for the Class of 2021, although with some of the expected COVID-19 restrictions. “We have identifi ed the night of Tuesday, June 8 at 6 p.m. as the night for our graduation ceremony,” said Revere High School Principal Dr. John Perella. The date has been approved by the School Committee, and the plan has been presented to city offi - cials, including the Police and Fire Departments and the Board of Health, said Perella. The ceremony will be held outside at Harry Della Russo Stadium, with each student eligible to receive two tickets for guests. Those guests will be sitting on the fi eld with the students to help ensure social distancing. “This is a minimized, smaller, controlled event that can take place and meet the needs of the students and their families to have a traditional graduation ceremony,” said Perella. “This is something that students have told us over and over again is their highest priority. Unfortunately, last year we were unable to do that, but this year it looks like we are a go for June 8 at 6 p.m.” Perella said the ceremony will GRADUATION | SEE Page 18 gram included metered parking along Revere Beach Boulevard from Eliot Circle to Carey Circle.

On Wednesday afternoon, the Licensing Commission approved an all-alcohol license, as well as Common Victualler and entertainment licenses for Bianchi’s at the Sand Bar to operate at the former Renzo’s restaurant at 381 Revere Beach Blvd. Under the new arrangement, Maryann Wood will be the manager and owner of record of the new restaurant, while the Bianchi family will be dishing out the slices that have been family favorites on Revere Beach for decades. While there is still some work to be done inside the space, the Licensing Commission and offi - cials for the Fire and Inspectional Services Departments signed off on a plan allowing Bianchi’s to serve to-go slices out of a takeout window on the boulevard. There is still some work being done for a second kitchen at the property that will allow for the sale of food in addition to pizza inside the 92-seat restaurant. The original location of the local pizza favorite closed in 2018 after nearly seven decades in business. Over the past few years, it had been operating out of the nearby Renzo’s restaurant at 381 Revere Beach Blvd. until Renzo’s closed last November.

Fielding A seamless and natural transition to become a new parish is currently taking place between St. Mary of the Assumption Church of Revere and Our Lady of Grace Church serving Chelsea and Everett that includes a beautiful, spiritual Haitian community and a growing Vietnamese community. The newly formed parish will be named with suggestions from Fr. John Sheridan, Pastor, the staff of both churches and the parishioners of each church. Final approval for a new parish name will be made by Cardinal Sean O’Malley, who received three fi - SPRING Go GREEN LANDSCAPING & CONSTRUCTION LLC Lawns Cut CLEANUPS CHEAP FREE Estimates and Fully Insured $100 (COUPON YOUR CHOICE * THESE SERVICES ONLY * LIMIT ONE PER CUSTOMER) NEW SPRING OR FALL FLOWERS * NEW SHRUBS * TREE REMOVAL OUTSIDE PAINTING * JUNK REMOVAL * SIMPLE HANDYMAN REPAIRS * COUPON IS REDEEMABLE FOR NEW CUSTOMERS ONLY ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Services include: ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ * Fertilization * Mulching *Junk Removed * Aeration * New Shrubs/Trees * Demolition * Irrigation Systems * New Lawns/Sod/Seed * Dog Poop Scoping * Dethatching * Tree Removal * Masonry * Lawn Cutting * Stump Removal * Landscaping * Spring/Fall Clean Ups * Gutter Cleaning * Sealcoating * Pruning * New Fences SERVING THE NORTH SHORE 877-688-7667 nal proposals last week. To be clear: Each church will retain its current name and unique history. Both churches have shared one pastor and have been working together for 10 years, the last three as a collaborative. Fr. Jim Barry was initially the pastor for seven years for both churches. Fr. John Sheridan began his tenure as pastor three years ago this coming June when the collaborative was offi cially formed. Being a builder of parishes, relationships and collaboratives, he has brought a special spirituality and deep-rooted faith, joyful exuberance and a very downto-earth personality that is contagious and appreciated by the congregation of both churches. Through his motivation, the designation Morning Star Catholic Collaborative and the collaborative logo were created with participation by all. As a side note: Morning Star is a title of the Blessed Virgin Mary, mother of Jesus. Since both churches are named after her, albeit with different titles, it is hoped that the new parish name will refl ect the collaborative’s current name or one attributed to her. Fr. John recently posted a letter to all parishioners on www.morningstarcatholic.org, the Morning Star Catholic Collaborative Facebook page, presented this news at all recent masses and spoke to parishioners on his weekly Monday video to parishioners called “A Word From Our Sponsor.” He stated, “Most of what we need to do we’ve been doing for years, and in many ways, there will be no noticeable diff erence in the daily life of our families. This will not aff ect our particular churches – St. Mary’s church and Our Lady of Grace church, our buildFr. John Sheridan, Pastor (right) and Linda DeCristoforo, Pastoral Associate (left) are ready to lead St. Mary of the Assumption, of Revere, and Our Lady of Grace, of Chelsea/Everett, through the process to become one parish with a new name. Each church will retain its individual name and identity. ings and facilities and programs will remain as they are – we will have one parish. This merger will simply allow us to streamline what we do and make it easier and better. Both have so much to give – Our Lady of Grace’s history and dedication to social action, Generations of Faith, a strong and vital Haitian community and a strong Prattville community; St. Mary of the Assumption’s energy, social interaction and Faith Formation program – and our united commitment to St. Joseph Parish in L’Asile, Haiti; both parishes serve as homes to groups and organizations; we share staff members, musicians and clergy.” Fr. John continued, “Folks from both parishes have been meeting for months to build a Pastoral Council. The next step for our two parish families is to strengthen our bonds for a strong future for our faith communities. We will also embrace a new name for our parish. Both parish families are dedicated to Mary – and that identity is important to us. I trust that we can, inspired by the Blessed Mother, find the right name. I hope that we will be able to keep the Morning Star in the new name, to be able to keep and share the beautiful image of our Blessed Mother. Please keep in mind that our church names will remain Our Lady of Grace and St. Mary’s – it is our combined parish name that we are developing. I sincerely believe that this is in the best interests of our families, each of us and all of us. There have already been 16 parish mergers since last March throughout the Archdiocese, in towns like Medford, Lynn and Lynnfi eld, so this is far from new. Through it all, I ask your prayers and support. We have been aligning our parish families for quite a while, and we already share so much – it makes sense that at this point, particularly in this rather diffi cult time, we would share even more. Parishioners’ generosity has been a blessing. The fact remains that fi nancially, neither parish can exist on their respective collections, even pre-pandemic, an essential element of a parish’s viability. I’m happy to report that we have a business manager, Linda McElwaney, to help us look ahead. Yet I am concerned that with low attendance in both churches (even before this pandemic), the weekly collections will not be able to cover the basics without going through the funds we have, but combined, we can build on each other’s strengths. The loss of Bingo, the Women’s Club’s Christmas calendar, the Christmas Bazaar, the preschool program at St. Mary’s, the Flea Market and the several fundraisers held throughout the year have taken a signifPARISH | SEE Page 3

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, APRIL 23, 2021 Page 3 Path cleared for return to full-time, in-person learning By Adam Swift R evere students through grade 8 will be returning to full-time, in-person learning next month if they so choose. Meanwhile, the district is still waiting to hear from the state’s Elementary and Secondary Education Commissioner on the status of a full-time return for high school students. The moves come quickly on the heels of the district’s turn to a hybrid learning model earlier this spring. “We will be welcoming back students to full-time learning in the near term, beginning with early childhood through grade 5 students,” said Superintendent Dr. Dianne Kelly. “We will start back those who want to on Monday, May 3 for a longer, more typical school day, and will also be every day instead of doing the alternating weeks. The option for those families who need it for their children to remain in full remote will still exist, but those will be the only two options. There will no lonPARISH | FROM Page 2 icant toll on us. Even with a return to these activities, which I look forward to in the near future, it will take a long time to get back to pre-pandemic interest and numbers.” Linda DeCristoforo has been Pastoral Associate for both churches for many years and has been a vital part of both staff s. Linda holds Bachelor of Arts in Religious Studies from Emmanuel College and earned a Master’s degree in Pastoral Ministry from the Institute for Pastoral Ministry for Religious Education with a concentration in Liturgy and Worship at Boston College. Her steady, unwavering faith and self-assuring spirituality solidifi es her inner strength that is very evident when she speaks to you. Her leadership role in faith ger be the hybrid, in one week, out the next week.” Students in grades 6 through 8 will have the same options beginning on Monday, May 10 for full-time, in-person or full remote learning. “We are still awaiting word from the [state education] commissioner on whether he is going to order high schools to come back to full in-person learning,” said Kelly. “He told us before vacation in a meeting that we had that he would be making the decision next week.” While there are some high schools in the state that have returned to full in-person learning, Kelly said, she wants to point out that there are districts in the state where the schools are able to have small class sizes allowing for social distancing. “There are diff erent parameters, as we have talked about throughout the pandemic,” she said. “Diff erent communities have different capacities based on enrollment and other factors that deformation, various parish ministries and services, and liturgy and worship are quite respected and appreciated by all parishioners. She and Fr. John are truly remarkable people with complementary personalities that certainly radiate positiveness and togetherness for both church communities. Linda expressed excitement with the new merger and off ered, “All faith formation programs, confi rmations, communions, religious education programs, all ministers (lectors, Eucharistic Ministers, etc.) together, will present new opportunities and not a real change.” Fr. John is clearly excited for both churches and the parishioners of the newly formed parish whose name is expected to be approved in the next several months. “This is good, great for the future. It will certainly help us. termine how they make their decisions.” Revere High School Principal Dr. John Perella said the school will be ready to welcome back students full time, if that is the decision that is made. “Everything is going really well at the high school, and I think we have been able to bring back students in an eff ective way,” said Perella. “Depending on what happens in the next few weeks, there is the possibility the state will ask us to return students full time, and if that happens, we’ll be ready to do it.” School Committee Member Carol Tye said she understands that the state commissioner is under pressure, but is looking forward to a fi nal decision being made about the high schools. “I hate to say anything negative about the commissioner, but everybody has been waiting for him to say something,” said Tye. “We’re all in an impossible position here, and he is, too, but I don’t know, I just hope he says something.” Now we have great hope, joy, and expectations, and can focus on families and children, and bringing everyone together in fully fi lled church soon! We have big plans. As I say we should look up and look ahead.” He emphasized, “During this pandemic we have so many volunteers to ensure protocols were kept – from temperature takers, contact tracers. People sanitizing the churches, cleaners, so many, many people who gave their time and put themselves at risk. I am humbled and grateful.” So, now is defi nitely a time to look up and look ahead as St. Mary of the Assumption Church, Revere and Our Lady of Grace Church, Chelsea/Everett await approval of their new parish name while keeping their current church names in a seamless and natural transition. www.eight10barandgrille.com We Have Reopened for Dine-In and Outside Seating every day beginning at 4 PM Lawrence A.

However, the counterfeit Percocet pills were reportedly laced with fentanyl and the counterfeit Adderall pills were laced with methamphetamine. West was subsequently charged with Distribution of a Class A Substance, Traffi cking in Fentanyl and Traffi cking in Methamphetamine. “Lives were saved today, addiction is a public health crisis which has a law enforcement component,” said Police Chief David Callahan. “Today, we and our law enforcement partners reinforce our resolve to address the supply side of this issue. We continue to work with our community stakeholders in addressing the demand component in providing outreach and assistance.” The Revere Police Department has advised residents that “drug traffi ckers are capitalizing on prescription drug abuse.” Healthy Innovations has partnered with the City’s Substance Use Disorder Initiatives Offi ce at 437 Revere St. and can be reached at 339-440-5633.

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, APRIL 23, 2021 Page 7 City encourages residents and property owners to apply for COVID-19 housing assistance Federal $400M available to Massachusetts residents; legal services available to residents facing eviction T he City of Revere is encouraging residents and property owners in need of rental, utility or mortgage assistance to take advantage of federal funding recently made available to Massachusetts residents. Residents and property owners can apply for assistance through the Residential Assistance for Families in Transition (RAFT) program, the Emergency Rental and Mortgage Assistance (ERMA) program and the Emergency Rental Assistance Program (ERAP). Earlier this month, the Baker-Polito Administration announced that $400 million in new federal funding is available to increase emergency assistance. “It has been an incredibly hard year for our residents,” said Mayor Brian Arrigo. “Our rental and mortgage assistance programs were some of our most utilized programs during COVID, and as the pandemic continues we understand the importance of prioritizing housing assistance.” Revere residents and property owners should visit Revere. org/housing for additional resources from the City’s Offi ce of Housing Stability, and to begin the application process. Residents in need of additional support should dial 3-1-1. The City has contracted with Chelsea Legal Services (CLS) to provide free legal representation and case management for residents at risk of eviction due to the pandemic.

For assistance, residents can call CLS at 617-466-3037. In the coming weeks, City staff and COVID-19 Ambassadors, led by the Offi ce of Housing Stability, will undertake a public outreach campaign to ensure residents and property owners are aware of the resources available to them. Outreach will stress the importance of continuing to take advantage of rental assistance programs despite the statewide eviction moratorium remaining in eff ect until June.

Operation of the club has been suspended since March 25 following violations of the health code and state-ordered COVID-19 restrictions. The violations were discovered following a complaint to the Inspectional Services Department about the club off ering mealsto-go on its social media page, according to Inspectional Services Director Michael Wells. As a private club, Wells said, it is not allowed to sell any food outside the premises to nonmembers. “While we were there, we decided to do a kitchen inspection, which they were due for, and when we went into the kitchen, it was in total darkness; the equipment had not been on, and there was barely any food in the kitchen,” said Wells. Although the Patriot Civic Club can typically serve alcoholic beverages without serving food, under the state’s COVID-19 restrictions, food must be served in order for patrons to drink. “In the club area, there were no violations except that the kitchen was not in operation while they were serving alcohol,” said Wells. He added that last August the club was cited by the state Alcoholic Beverages Control Commission for a similar violation where the kitchen was not serving food and members were not wearing masks. That violation did go to a hearing and the club got its license back, Wells said. “Upon further review [on March 25], they had multiple permits open to renovate their kitchens, and none of them had been signed off on by the Fire Department or Inspectional Services, so they did not have any proper permits to be using that kitchen that was under renovation,” said Wells. A representative from the club said food was not being served at that time because the kitchen staff was late showing up that day. Patriot Civic Club manager William Hetherton said he was not present on March 25 when the violation occurred. He noted that there has been a lot of work put into the kitchen to make it fully operational and meet the guidelines to serve food during the COVID-19 pandemic. “We’ve been there for 80 years, so it was a lot of work to do the wiring and electrical work,” said Hetherton. “We’ve done everything we need to do; unfortunately, we need to get more competent people to work in the kitchen.” Wells said that while all the kitchen permits have yet to be issued, it does look like the club has made signifi cant progress in the past several weeks. Licensing Commission Chair Robert Selevitch recommended lifting the suspension contingent upon all the kitchen permits getting approval from the proper city offi cials. His fellow commissioners agreed to his recommendation.

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, APRIL 23, 2021 Page 13 GREATER BOSTON LEAGUE NOTEBOOK: Football opens this weekend for Everett Crimson Tide and Revere Patriots; Malden High Tornados football opens next week Former GBL star Norcia earns honors at Merrimack Limited fans are allowed this season at GBL events (PARENTS ONLY); Check with individual schools for their protocols By Jason Mazzilli It's been almost exactly a year and a half since high school football was played by teams in the Greater Boston League (GBL), namely, Everett High, Malden High and Revere High. It was Thanksgiving, 2019, to be exact, late November, some 18 months ago. Then the COVID-19 pandemic took over internationally in March 2020 and high school sports became an afterthought. When the communities which comprise the GBL became some of the hardest-hit with cases and positive rates, the decision was name to push all Fall Sports to the so-called "Fall 2" season, this spring. In January, a further decision was made by the GBL powersthat-be to push the GBL's Fall 2 season (and the preceding Winter season and following Spring season) back yet another month, as a health and safety precaution. All that brings us to this weekend: FOOTBALL'S BACK! With the quickened addition of two Lynn high schools to the Greater Boston League team roster, as well as Chelsea, the GBL now boasts a full, eight team league, with Chelsea, Everett, Lynn Classical, Lynn English, Malden, Medford, Revere and Somerville. This weekend, four of those schools return to the football fi eld with Everett High kicking off its season on Friday night with a 6:00 p.m. home game at Everett Stadium versus Lynn English. Revere High Patriots will be on the road Friday night at 6:00 p.m. to play Lynn Classical at Manning Field in Lynn. The other four GBL schools, including Malden High Golden Tornados, Chelsea, Medford and Somerville will begin their seasons next weekend, April 30May 1, with a schedule still being fi nalized. One game that is finalized on the schedule for Malden is a Saturday, May 8 matchup with traditional rival Medford, which will be played at 12:00 noon at Macdonald Stadium in Malden. This will be the 133rd meeting between the two longtime GBL rivals, and with some other games not being played around the state this year, it will push this game into the spotlight as the longest continuous high school football rivalry in the nation! *** One major change in "Fall 2" is that fans (Parents Only) will be allowed this season in attendance at the games. Those wishing to attend the games must contact their schools to check on their respective protocols for fan attendance. Debut of Everett 1st-year head coach DiLoreto Friday night For Everett, Friday night's game will be the debut of fi rstRevere looking forward to football start Friday Revere Head Coach Lou Cicatelli’s looking forward to a strong 2020 season before the fall season was pushed back to this spring. The Patriots had its best record in 30 years in 2019 at 10-1 overall and won its fi rst NEC divisional title in many years, before switching to the Greater Boston League. The Patriots return many year head coach Rob DiLoreto, who was appointed to the post in October 2020. DiLoreto is a "blast from the past" appointee as he was himself a Crimson Tide player for the 1984 team under former Tide football bosses Moody Sarno and "Tank" Agnetta. Everett's tentative schedule after this week includes games versus Lynn Classical the weekend of April 30-May 1; and home against Revere on Friday, May 7. A game on the weekend of May 14-15 is expected as well. Everett's led by Boston College-bound split end-defensive back Ismael Zamor, UMaine recruit Tyrese Baptiste. On both sides of the line, Everett will be led by 6-1, 260 lbs. lineman Josiah Stewart. Stewart, another Tide senior, is headed to Coastal Carolina next fall. Other key players for Everett are junior running back Jayden Clerveaux and junior 6-2, 230 lbs. defensive end Jaylen Murphy. players this year, including senior captains: quarterback Calvin Boudreau, running back/ linebacker Adetayo Attebbi, defensive end/off ensive guard, Ryan Doucette, and running back/linebacker John Tran. Senior Night will be held at Della Russo Stadium on Friday night, April 30. The captains of the Revere High football team are quarterback Calvin Boudreau, running back/ linebacker Adetayo Attebbi, defensive end/off ensive guard, Ryan Doucette, and running back/linebacker John Tran. Other key players include split ends Marco Cerbone and Jared Natola running back Billy Ginepra, and tight end Dillan Day. Defensive leaders include Mark Galvez, Junior Augusto Goncalves and senior Ryan Doucette. Malden football will open up 'Fall 2' next weekend The Malden High football squad will open up next weekend, with the schedule still being fi nalized. Third-year head coach Steve Freker's Tornados are led by senior captains Matt Bessey, a 6-3, 200 lbs. three-year starter at split end and defensive end; Muneer Odally, a 6-5, 240 lbs. two-way lineman, Giovani Memeus, 6-0, 220 lbs. running back and linebacker, Ralph Deus Jr., a 6-2, 245 lbs. two-way lineman and Moise Fanfan, 6-2, 185 lbs. split end and defensive back. Malden also features one of the region's top placekickers in junior Ronald Juarez, who has already attended several of the nation's top showcase kicking camps. Other key players for Malden include junior Mackenley Anasthal, junior split ends Nelson Monosiet, Oswaldo Rodriguez, Oklahoma transfer Gavin West, senior linebacker Jude Alphonse, senior linemen Steve Nyembo (6-2, 240 lbs.), Ryan Castor (6-1, 285 lbs.), junior linemen Jeremiah Dessources (510, 220 lbs.) and Paccini Louis (5-9, 200 lbs.). *** Everett's Norcia is Second Team All-Conference for Merrimack College Football Former GBL and Everett High football standout Anthony Norcia enjoyed a productive spring campaign to earn the fi rst allconference honor of his career. Over two games, he led the team's receiving corps with 11 catches for 111 yards and two touchdowns. He started the year with four receptions for 43 yards with a score against Bryant, and then followed that up with the best game of his career. The Everett, Mass. native caught a career-high seven balls for a career-best 68 yards and another score in the season finale at LIU. He tied for the team lead in catches while leading Merrimack in receiving yards and touchdowns this spring. Revere High football is looking for another strong season in Fall 2 GBL with a good turnout of players under Patriots Head Coach Lou Cicatelli.

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, APRIL 23, 2021 Page 15 Spring into Science: Five Ways You Can Help Track the Signs of Spring and Climate Change BOSTON — Springtime is a season that is shifting around the country. With balmy weather and “winter weather whiplash” in the Northeast, the Polar Vortex driving record low temperatures in the South, among other weather oddities, these unusual seasons are unpredictable interruptions that are signs of change. Climate change isn’t just the long, gradual ramp-up (or shifting baseline) of warming temperatures. It also manifests in extreme fl uctuations in weather conditions, which overall show us a picture of more variability and increasing intensity of storms and extreme conditions, causing outsized impacts on ecosystems, economies and infrastructure. Dr. Sarah Nelson, Research Director for Appalachian Mountain Club, America’s oldest outdoor organization, shares fi ve ways you can help scientists track the seasons and further understand the sensitivity of spring: 1. Listen to the science. Information is power; learn and do your own research. Vet the things you read and hear before spreading falsehoods. AMC shares information about climate change science and impacts here, and debunks myths about climate change here. 2. Reduce your carbon footprint. Data proves that we will see more loss of cold and winter if we continue on a high emissions scenario than a lower-emissions scenario. Greenhouse gases drive our climate and directly translate to changing temperatures. More about AMC’s eff orts in this arena, and a carbon footprint calculator, here: www.outdoors.org/AMCAtWork. 3. Get your boots muddy! With earlier springtime weather, you may be hitting the trail but earlier mud season and more mud days could mean more damage to sensitive vegetation and trails. Even if it means muddy boots, stay on the trail to avoid damaging tender plants along the edges. More about Leave No Trace from AMC, here: https://www.outdoors.org/articles/amc-outdoors/leave-notrace-travel-and-camp-on-durable-surfaces. 4. Chase the Spring. Now, scientists use plant phenology— the timing of life-cycle events like budburst and fl owering— as an indicator of shifting seasons. To help understand how seasons could be shifting in the mountains, you can chase the seasons right through spring and summer by joining iNaturalist and AMC’s Northeast Alpine Flower Watch program when you are out hiking. The data will help to identify how spring phenology is changing in the region. 5. Join AMC's Conservation Action Network. Learn about and speak up on issues that threaten the Northeast outdoors as well as opportunities to ensure that treasured locations and landscapes can be enjoyed for generations to come. Appalachian Mountain Club’s Dr. Sarah Nelson brings more than two decades of scientific scholarship to her role as AMC’s director of research. Before joining AMC in September 2019, Nelson spent 21 years at the University of Maine, most recently directing the Ecology and Environmental Sciences program and serving as associate research professor in the School of Forest Resources. She helps lead a national program she cofounded, called The Dragonfl y Mercury Project, collecting citizen science data on mercury levels in dragonfl y larvae—engaging more than 4,500 citizen scientists in 100 parks across 47 states over 10 years.

Baker files legislation to improve public safety and data reporting requirements for transportation network companies O n April 15 the Baker-Polito Administration fi led legislation to build on the Commonwealth’s comprehensive oversight of Transportation Network Companies (TNCs) by improving public safety requirements and obtaining additional ride data to assist with transportation planning, congestion management and vehicle emissions tracking. Additionally, An Act relative to transportation network companies would provide needed fl exibility for the ban on surge pricing during a State of Emergency and expand the types of companies subject to state TNC laws and regulations. “The safety of Massachusetts residents and visitors is our top priority and this legislation will institute additional public safety measures for passengers and law enforcement, provide important information to transportation planners and reduce administrative burdens for cities and towns,” said Governor Charlie Baker. “The Commonwealth was a national leader in providing background checks and a regulatory framework for the rideshare industry, and as the industry evolves into an important element of our transportation system, we are pleased to fi le this bill ensuring that the Commonwealth’s transportation network can continue to grow in a safe and responsible manner.” “This legislation continues our Administration’s eff orts to promote economic growth and modernize our transportation system, and we look forward to working with our partners in the Legislature to move this bill forward and ensure safe, reliable transportation options for all Commonwealth residents,” said Lieutenant Governor Karyn Polito. “Critically, this legislation will make sure communities are provided the information they need to make local infrastructure and environmental planning decisions.” “Transportation emissions account for over 40 percent of climate-changing emissions in Massachusetts, so the BakerPolito Administration is working hard to reduce these emissions and protect Commonwealth residents,” said Secretary of Energy and Environmental Aff airs Kathleen Theoharides. “As the rideshare industry continues to grow in the Commonwealth, this legislation would ensure we have the data we need to combat climate change and achieve net zero emissions by 2050.” “From a public safety perspective, this bill will greatly enhance our eff orts to protect TNC users,” said Secretary of Public Safety and Security Thomas Turco. “By strengthening the laws against ‘account renting,’ creating a criminal penalty for misusing riders’ personal information, and adding additional regulatory safeguards, it will help ensure that riders know whose car they’re entering and that they can do so safely.” The Administration previously fi led An Act relative to public safety and transparency by transportation network companies in 2019, but the current legislation includes a newly fi led provision that gives the Department of Public Utilities (DPU) exclusive authority to regulate large livery companies operating throughout the state on a digital network. This provision will ensure that livery companies operating on a digital network with over 100 drivers will be subject to the statewide TNC laws and regulations. Smaller livery companies will remain regulated at the municipal level, regardless of whether they operate on a digital network. The proposal would build on Massachusetts’s TNC safety and enforcement laws, some of the most stringent and comprehensive in the country, by: • Increasing fi nes and penalties – up to two and half years in a House of Correction – for the practice of “account renting,” or allowing another individual to use a TNC driver’s account or identity to provide TNC services. • Making it a criminal off ense for a driver to exploit the personal information of a rider to stalk, harass or defraud a rider. • Implementing tougher penalties for drivers who fail to maintain a driver certifi cate or a background check clearance certificate, fail to display TNC vehicle decals, fail to maintain adequate insurance or fail to carry proof of a TNC vehicle inspection. This legislation also allows for new transportation data to be collected from TNCs and eases the administrative burden on small towns. Specifi cally, the bill will authorize the DPU to obtain more detailed trip data from TNCs on a monthly basis that can then be shared in an anonymous and confi dential manner with state agencies, municipalities and local organizations for planning purposes. The more detailed data called for in this legislation includes total miles and minutes when drivers are en route to pick up riders and when they are providing rides, whether riders were successfully matched for shared rides, and additional data on accidents and reasonable accommodations. Under the legislation, better emissions data can be collected by requiring TNCs to report the total miles and minutes that each vehicle is on the road, together with vehicle make, model and year information. Under the legislation, the reporting requirements for communities that receive $25,000 or less annually from TNCs are reduced and those communities can make spending decisions on those relatively small funds without going through their local appropriation process. The additional data will help transportation planners analyze how rides impact transportation infrastructure and the environment and allow them to make more informed decisions about the location of dedicated bus lanes, specific investments in infrastructure, and overall impacts from vehicle emissions. The legislation also gives the DPU the authority to determine whether it is appropriate to permit TNCs to use surge pricing during a State of Emergency. Enabling surge pricing under certain circumstances and with appropriate limitations could increase the supply of drivers, which reduces wait times and ensures reliable transportation options. Since January 2017, the Transportation Network Company Division of the DPU has implemented the most comprehensive state background checks for TNC drivers in the country, and it has approved over 240,000 individuals to operate as TNC drivers, although not all are currently active drivers. Drivers engaged in providing transportation services on behalf of TNCs undergo a full state driving record and Criminal Off ender Record Information (CORI) background check. Additionally, drivers are subjected to a biannual national commercial background check conducted by the TNCs. TNC rides that started in the Commonwealth increased from 64.8 million in 2017 to 91.1 million in 2019.

Page 16 THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, APRIL 23, 2021 Mass Eye and Ear agrees to pay over $2.6M to resolve False Claims Act allegations M assachusetts Eye and Ear Infi rmary, Massachusetts Eye and Ear Associates, Inc. and the Foundation of the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infi rmary, Inc. (“Massachusetts Eye and Ear”) have agreed to pay $2.678 million to resolve allegations that they violated the False Claims Act. Massachusetts Eye and Ear provides inpatient and outpatient services to patients with a range of ailments involving the eye, ear, nose and throat. Over an eight-year period, Massachusetts Eye and Ear improperly billed federal health care programs for certain offi ce visits, defrauding the United States of more than a million dollars. “When health care providers submit improper claims to Medicare and Medicaid, they do two bad things: they unjustly enrich themselves, and they drain money needed for legitimate patient care,” said Acting U.S. Attorney for the District of Massachusetts Nathaniel Mendell. “This settlement punishes bad billing and helps safeguard government health care programs from fraud, waste and abuse.” “Our federal healthcare system relies on the basic premise that providers abide by the rules and bill properly, and the American taxpayers who fund the Medicare and Medicaid programs deserve nothing less,” said Special Agent in Charge Phillip Coyne of the Offi ce of the Inspector General of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. “Today’s announcement demonstrates our continued and unwavering commitment to rooting out false claims that threaten the integrity of our healthcare system.” “Mass Eye and Ear received more than a million dollars from fraudulently billing federal healthcare programs over the course of eight years, undermining the integrity of our healthcare system, and increasing the fi nancial burden on hard-working taxpayers,” said Joseph Bonavolonta, Special Agent in Charge of the FBI’s Boston Division. “We would like to thank the patient who had the courage to come forward with allegations of illegal conduct, and we’d like to encourage others to do the same because standing up for what’s right and safeguarding taxpayer dollars is critical, given that every year, the submission of false claims to the government costs taxpayers billions.” Between Jan. 1, 2012, and Feb. 1, 2020, Massachusetts Eye and Ear regularly submitted claims to Medicare and MassHealth (Massachusetts’s Medicaid program) for office visits at which physicians performed certain medical procedures, specifically, nasal endoscopies and laryngoscopies. Medicare and MassHealth do not permit billing for such offi ce visits in addition to billing for the procedures, except under special circumstances that were not present here. As a result of the illegal conduct, Massachusetts Eye and Ear obtained reimbursements to which it was not entitled. The False Claims Act settlement resolves allegations originally brought in a lawsuit fi led by a whistleblower under the qui tam provisions of the False Claims Act, which allow private parties, known as relators, to bring suit on behalf of the government and to share in any recovery. In connection with the April 20, 2021, announcement of the settlement, the relator will receive 15 percent of the recovery. Blue Cross Blue Shield of Mass. offers free Bluebikes rides to COVID-19 vaccination appointments T o boost access to COVID-19 vaccines and support transportation needs as more Massachusetts residents become eligible, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts (Blue Cross) is sponsoring free Bluebikes rides to and from vaccination sites located within the Bluebikes system.

The 2021 NECBL All-Star Game will be held on Sunday, July 18 at Cardines Field in beautiful Newport, R.I. After that the league’s teams will play two fi nal weeks of the regular season in hopes of qualifying for the 2021 NECBL Playoff s, of which the format will be announced at a later date. The regular season is scheduled to end on Sunday, August 1, with the following day left open for makeup games. The postseason will begin on Tuesday, August 3. The Navs – a charter member of the New England League’s inaugural season dating back to 1994 – rejoin the NECBL this summer after a nine-year hiatus. The Navigators began their NECBL tenure as a charter member based out of Middletown, Conn., where they won three consecutive NECBL championships as the Middletown Giants from 1997-99. Since then, no team has repeated that feat. Following a three-year stint as the Holyoke (Mass.) Giants, the team relocated to the North Shore in 2008. The Navs qualified for the NECBL postseason in four straight seasons and won a fourth Fay Vincent Sr. Cup in 2010. Season passes, which admit two people to each Navs home game, are now on sale for $95.50. Contact Maggie Barden (maggie@nsnavs.com) for further ticket information or questions.

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, APRIL 23, 2021 Page 17 ~ LETTER TO THE EDITOR ~ Could You Have Prediabetes? Dear Savvy Senior, What can you tell me about prediabetes, and how can you know if you have it? My 62-year-old husband, who’s in pretty good shape, was recently diagnosed with prediabetes and didn’t have clue. Could I have it too? Wondering Spouse Dear Wondering, Underlying today’s growing epidemic of type 2 diabetes is a much larger epidemic called prediabetes, which is when the blood sugar levels are higher than they should be but not high enough to be called diabetes. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that as many as 84 million Americans today have prediabetes. Left untreated, it almost always turns into type 2 diabetes within 10 years. If you have prediabetes, the long-term damage it can cause – especially to your heart and circulatory system – may already be starting. But the good news is that prediabetes doesn’t mean that you’re destined for fullblown diabetes. Prediabetes can actually be reversed, and diabetes prevented, by making some simple lifestyle changes like losing weight, exercising, eating a healthy diet and cutting back on carbohydrates. Or, if you need more help, oral medications may also be an option. Get Tested Because prediabetes typically causes no outward symptoms, most people that have it don’t realize it. The only way to know for sure if you have it is to get a blood test. Everyone age 45 years or older should consider getting tested for prediabetes, especially if you are overweight with a body mass index (BMI) above 25. See CDC. gov/bmi to calculate your BMI. If you are younger than 45 but are overweight, or have high blood pressure, a family history of diabetes, or belong to an ethnic group (Latino, Asian, African or Native American) at high risk for diabetes, you should get checked too. To help you determine your risk of diabetes, the American Diabetes Association (ADA) has a quick, online risk test you can take for free at DoIHavePrediabetes.org. Diabetes Tests If you find that you’re at risk for prediabetes, there are three diff erent tests your doctor can give you to diagnosis it. The most common is the “fasting plasma glucose test,” which requires an eighthour fast before you take it. There’s also the “oral glucose tolerance test” to see how your body processes sugar, and the “hemoglobin A1C test” that measures your average blood sugar over the past three months. It can be taken anytime regardless of when you ate. Most private health insurance plans and Medicare cover diabetes tests, however, if you’re reluctant to visit your doctor to get tested, an alternative is to go to the drug store, buy a blood glucose meter and test yourself at home. They cost around $20. If you find that you are prediabetic or diabetic, you need to see your doctor to develop a plan to get it under control. The ADA recommends losing weight and doing moderate exercise – such as 150 minutes a week of brisk walking. And when lifestyle changes alone don’t work, medication might. The ADA recommends the generic drug metformin, especially for very overweight people younger than 60. For more information on diabetes and prediabetes or to fi nd help, join a lifestyle change program recognized by the CDC (see CDC.gov/diabetes/prevention). These programs offer in-person and online classes in more than 1,500 locations throughout the U.S. Over the course of a year, a coach will help you eat healthy, increase your physical activity and develop new habits.

Police officers are held to the same justice as all citizens T o the brave members of the Massachusetts law enforcement community: The trial and conviction on all counts of former police offi cer Derick Chauvin in Minnesota conclusively demonstrates that offi cers can be, and in fact are held to the same justice as all other citizens in our nation, as they should be. At the most basic, a man needlessly lost his life to a police offi cer. At the same time, the assertions of so many who wish to demonize all police offi cers because of the actions of one police offi cer have been shown to be hollow. Due process rights do not prevent the investigation, charging, trial, and conviction of a police offi cer. Neither does qualifi ed immunity. Neither do police unions, associations, or legal defense plans. PARKING | FROM Page 1 changes to its existing City-run resident parking program and will implement seasonal 24/7 resident parking in neighborhoods abutting Revere Beach. “Our top priority in collaborating with Commissioner Montgomery and DCR was to minimize the impact this program will have on our residents,” Arrigo said. “I want to thank Secretary Theoharides, Commissioner Montgomery and their teams for working with us to identify solutions that make sense for our community. I also want to thank Senator Boncore, Representatives Giannino and Turco, as well as our City Councilors for their continued advocacy on behalf of our residents.” “I want to thank Mayor Arrigo, Senator Boncore, Representative Giannino, and Representative Turco for their willingness to collaborate on creative solutions to improve the Curbside Parking Meter Project in Revere, which will help us provide state park visitors with high-quality services and recreational opportunities,” said DCR Commissioner Montgomery. “DCR is proud of our historic partnership with the City of Revere, and looks forward to continuing to work with Police offi cers, and all citizens, are entitled to their day in court and to have an impartial judge and jury weigh the evidence against them. They are entitled to have their side of the issue heard and considered. And all of us must respect the decisions of the court system when these fundamental rules of due process are applied. Police offi cers serve the American criminal justice system, sometimes at the cost of their very own lives. We should respect the verdict of the justice system in this case, and we should continue to stand for the proposition that respecting the fundamental Constitutional rights of all persons of committing an off ense, even when that person is a police offi cer, is no obstacle to the attaining of justice. In fact, it is the very foundathe City to enhance America’s First Public Beach.” “The resolution announced today will ensure continued access to America’s fi rst public beach for both Revere residents and visitors alike,” said Senator Joe Boncore (D-Winthrop). “I appreciate the collaboration with Mayor Arrigo, the Revere State House delegation, and the City Council in meeting our shared goal to improve outcomes for our community.” “I am proud of the agreement reached today between the DCR and the City of Revere. I believe that this is a fair and reasonable balance that protects Revere residents and keeps our beach accessible to the people of Revere. By creating resident only parking along the residential/ business side of Revere Beach Boulevard, as well as on Ocean Avenue, Revere residents who live on the beach will be able to continue parking in front of their homes while also allowing any Revere resident who wishes to utilize the beach the opportunity to continue to park for free in designated areas,” said Representative Jessica Giannino. “I thank the DCR for their reconsideration and for revamping their parking program in response to the concerns raised by local tion upon which justice can be obtained. To all the offi cers who continue to defend us with quiet dignity, there are those of us who proclaim loudly our appreciation for the acts of service you perform as part of your daily routine. Even when some protest you, you protect them. This is a time to come together as a community regardless of whether you are black or white, whether you are rich or poor, whether you are a police offi cer or someone they protect and serve. We are at our best when we recognize our common humanity, and come together to make a better and safer community! Respectfuly, Skyllar Mullvaney The Horses & Heroes Foundation elected offi cials and the people of our great city.” “I applaud the changes to the DCR’s parking program. These changes will provide a signifi - cant amount of no-cost parking to the people of Revere,” said Representative Jeff Turco. “That said, I look forward to working with my colleagues in the Legislature to make sure that monies raised on Revere Beach stay on Revere Beach.” Ward 5 Councillor John Powers has been a vocal opponent of the DCR plan to install parking meters along the residential side of the beachfront since he fi rst got wind of the plan in December. Powers said that in addition to residents, the meters would have been an inconvenience to friends and family visiting along the beach, as well as for the healthcare professionals providing home services to many of the elderly residents. “I want to thank the mayor, the state delegation, and Governor’s Councilor Terry Kennedy who all worked to make this happen and to eliminate the meters on the residential side of the beach,” said Powers. “This is a positive thing that shows that Revere cares about its residents.” For Advertising with Results, call The Advocate Newspapers at 781-286-8500 or Info@advocatenews.net

Beacon Hill Roll Call record local representatives’ votes on the roll call from the week of April 12-16. There were no roll calls in the Senate last week. HOUSE APPROVES $400 MILLION FOR NEW SOLDIERS’ HOME the Senate a bill authorizing $400 million to fund the construction of a new Soldiers’ Home in Holyoke. The push to construct the new home follows the deaths of 77 veteran residents last year as a result of a COVID-19 outbreak at the current facility. During debate on the House fl oor, Rep. Danielle Gregoire (D-Marlborough) House chair of Committee on Bonding, Capital Expenditures and State Assets addressed what the bill does and does not do. “This bill is solely to fi nance the long overdue construction of a new soldiers’ home in Holyoke to serve our state’s veterans,” said Gregoire. “The myriad issues in governance and oversight and the geographic, racial and gender inequity issues that have been brought to light, though not created by the COVID-19 crisis, and resulting tragedy in Holyoke last year will be addressed in the near future, through a vehicle that will allow for more extensive research, discussion and debate.” Gregoire also outlined a timeline for the project. She noted the “enabling work” for the project is expected to be done in spring 2022; construction will occur between the summers of 2022 and 2026; the move to the new building will be in the fall of 2026; demolition of the existing facility will follow the move and end in 2028; and fi - nal site work and landscaping will take place between the spring and summer of 2028. The Baker administration and House and Senate leaders are all trying to speed the bill’s passage in order to meet deadlines to apply for as much as $260 million in funding from the federal government, which would leave state taxpayers with a $140 million bill. “Holyoke is deeply proud to be home to the Soldiers’ Home and we are grateful to see the House support a bill to prepare the home for the next 50 years,” said Aaron Vega, Director of Holyoke’s Offi ce of Planning and Economic Development and former state representative from Holyoke. “The bonding authorization included in this legislation will allow the commonwealth to move forward with critical upgrades to the Holyoke Soldiers’ Home that will provide our veterans with a state-of-the-art facility that meets their health care and long-term care needs,” said House GOP Minority Leader Brad Jones (R-North Reading). “It also places the commonwealth in a strong position to qualify for significant federal matching funds to complete this work.” Next stop is the Senate where Sen. John Velis (D-Westfi eld), who represents Holyoke in the upper chamber, said, “I am pleased that the House unanimously passed the … bill today. Our commonwealth needs a new facility that will care for our veterans with the honor and dignity that they deserve. Today’s passage was an important step towards that goal, and I look forward to the Senate promptly acting on this bill.” The office of House Ways and Means chair Rep. Aaron Michlewitz (DBoston), the author of the bill, did not respond to questions by Beacon Hill Roll Call which were sent repeatedly directly to Michlewitz and his Chief of Staff Blake Webber. (A “Yes” vote is for the bill.) Rep. Jessica Giannino Ye s 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 latenight sessions and a mad rush to act on dozens of bills in the days immeLICENSING | FROM Page 1 “There will be a dining menu, as well as pizza, which will be the mainstay,” said Jill Mann, the attorney representing the business before the commission. “Obviously, from the name Bianchi’s we all know this.” In addition to the takeout window and the 92-seat dining room, there will be 10 twoseat tables outside the restaurant, said Mann. The proposed hours of operation for the new Bianchi’s will be from 11 a.m. to 2 a.m., seven days per week. “This, to me, is one of the most rewarding circumstances that you can get in being a city councillor, when you can speak in favor of an applicant, someone who has been in Revere all their life,” said Ward 5 Councillor John Powers. “I am 100 percent in favor and I think this is long overdue.

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, APRIL 23, 2021 Page 19 Mass. taxpayers are among the most generous in New England T he Massachusetts Fiscal Alliance (MassFiscal) recently weighed in on the Tax Foundation’s new state tax map that shows Massachusetts taxpayers have the second highest state and local tax collections per capita of any of the New England states, trailing only Connecticut. Among the New England states, Connecticut taxpayers pay an average of $8,494 while Massachusetts taxpayers pay an average of $7,006; Vermont taxpayers pay an average of $6,349, Rhode Island, $5,789; and Maine, $5,540. New Hampshire comes in last with taxpayers paying an average of $5,272. Nationally, Massachusetts is the sixth most expensive state, even surpassing California and Illinois. The data is from fi scal year 2018 (the most recent data available), and the state tax map may be found at https://taxfoundation. org/state-local-tax-collectionsper-capita-2021/. “As state lawmakers begin the budget process, they should be cautious that Massachusetts taxpayers are already among the most generous in New England and in the country. Even if State House leaders do not include any new tax hikes in this year’s budget, our taxpayers are already stretched thin. Sustained increases in state spending, continued refusals to make state government more efficient, and no tax relief are all contributing factors to Massachusetts getting to this point,” said MassFiscal Spokesperson/ Board Member Paul Craney. He also stated, “Environmental groups that want to raise taxes have several policies that will soon take eff ect and make matters worse. Next year, Governor Charlie Baker’s Transportation and Climate Initiative will take effect, which acts as another gas and diesel tax hike. Over the next few years, the recently signed Climate Law will further drive up the cost of living and doing business in Massachusetts through arbitrary mandates and increased regulations.” “Pro tax environmental groups aren’t the only group that should be blamed for higher costs down the road. Powerful union bosses are manipulating lawmakers to advance an amendment to the state constitution that would raise taxes on high income earners. These looming tax hikes will be placed on the backs of hard-working Massachusetts taxpayers,” said Craney. Baker signs executive order to reduce greenhouse gas emissions at state facilities A s part of the Baker-Polito Administration’s celebration of Earth Week in Massachusetts, Governor Charlie Baker recently joined state and local offi cials at the Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency (MEMA) bunker to sign a new Executive Order building on the Administration’s eff orts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions across state facilities. The Order, Leading by Example: Decarbonizing and Minimizing Environmental Impacts of State Government, sets goals and requirements to accelerate the state’s decarbonization eff orts in state agencies and public institutions of higher education, prioritizing electrifi cation of buildings and transportation. The Order builds on the Commonwealth’s national leadership on climate change, including an announcement by Baker that the Administration has met its commitment to invest $1 billion in climate spending by 2022, surpassing that benchmark in April 2021. “Addressing climate change requires bold, urgent action, which is why I am proud that our Administration has achieved an ambitious goal of investing $1 billion in climate adaptation and mitigation efforts, an accomplishment we will continue to build on through this Executive Order,” said Baker. “The Leading by Example Executive Order will boost the state’s adoption of innovative clean energy strategies, and I’m grateful for the eff orts of our state agencies and institutions to help us take on the challenge of climate change.” “The Leading by Example Program empowers state government entities to continue leading and innovating on clean energy and energy effi ciency,” said Lieutenant Governor Karyn Polito. “This Executive Order will support these continued eff orts, reduce emissions, and lead to cost savings for many of our public universities and buildings.” The Executive Order reinforces Massachusetts as a leader in emissions reduction efforts through a variety of strategies. To reduce emissions and increase energy resilience, the Order underscores the need for signifi - cant energy effi ciency measures across the state portfolio, as well as the deployment of renewable energy and energy storage at multiple facilities. Additionally, the Order: • Requires all new construction at state agencies and campuses to meet stringent energy performance standards, install high effi ciency heating and cooling systems, and meet DOER's new Specialized Stretch Energy Code when it is promulgated. • Requires all state fl eets to buy zero emission vehicles starting next year. • Requires the doubling of electric vehicle charging stations installed at state facilities by 2030. • Establishes specifi c and measurable emission reduction targets associated with building and vehicle fossil fuels consumed by state entities. • Requires agencies to incorporate emissions reduction strategies into all budgetary and planning eff orts. • Requires state agencies to appoint Leading by Example coordinators in support of the Executive Order’s goals. Baker was joined by Lieutenant Governor Karyn Polito, Energy and Environmental Aff airs Secretary Kathleen Theoharides, Department of Energy Resources (DOER) Commissioner Patrick Woodcock, and Division of Capital Asset Management and Maintenance (DCAMM) Commissioner Carol Gladstone. The MEMA bunker features a comprehensive energy efficiency and renewable energy project completed in 2020, overseen by DCAMM and partially funded by DOER’s Leading by Example Program. “Thanks to the commitment of our public servants and state agencies, the Commonwealth continues to lead by example on clean energy and climate action, helping us to achieve our ambitious emissions reduction goals,” said Energy and Environmental Affairs Secretary Kathleen Theoharides. “The executive order signed by Governor Baker will make our state government more sustainable, resilient, and lead to environmental benefi ts in cities and towns throughout Massachusetts.” “DOER is proud to support our state partners as they make meaningful transitions in heating their buildings, powering their vehicles, and other innovative clean energy strategies,” said Department of Energy Resources Commissioner Patrick Woodcock. “Electrifi cation of our buildings and transportation will be at the forefront of strategies to meet the executive order’s emissions targets and meet our greenhouse gas mitigation requirements.” Through the Leading by Example Program, state entities have collectively reduced greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 35 percent from a 2004 baseline, reduced heating oil use by 85 percent, eliminating more than 18 million gallons of fuel oil, and reduced energy use per square foot by 14 percent. Since 2015, state entities have installed 184 electric vehicle charging stations, deployed more than 20 MW of solar, created 42 new pollinatorfriendly habitats, and completed 57 LEED Certifi ed buildings, 35 of which achieved a Gold or Platinum rating. “DCAMM is committed to supporting clean energy and climate initiatives throughout state government and this executive order helps the Commonwealth move toward achieving its longterm resiliency and sustainability goals,” said DCAMM Commissioner Carol Gladstone. “We look forward to continuing to work with our partner agencies to meet these emissions targets and address the impacts of climate change in communities across Massachusetts.” “We are grateful for the opportunity to partner with DOER and DCAMM on this project to bring the solar canopy, new generators, and improvements in heating, ventilation, lighting, and other systems to the Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency (MEMA),” said MEMA Director Samantha Phillips. “MEMA’s headquarters, home to the State Emergency Operations Center, is a critical infrastructure facility and these improvements will enhance operational capabilities, reduce energy and water usage, and save money.” The MEMA bunker is the site of a comprehensive energy effi ciency and renewable energy project, which includes a stateowned 275 kW parking lot solar canopy. The project will generate 376,000 kWh of renewable electricity annually and result in an estimated $100,000 in annual benefi ts to the site from electricity cost savings, Solar Massachusetts Renewable Target (SMART) Program incentive payments, and demand charge savings. Over 20 years, the project is estimated to provide the site with roughly $2 million in total cost savings and generated revenue. The project received a $453,750 DOER Leading By Example grant, which reduced the construction cost by approximately 27 percent, reducing the project’s payback period by four years. During this year’s Earth Week in Massachusetts, the Baker-Polito Administration is highlighting its commitment to supporting the Commonwealth’s Environmental Justice communities, and ensuring that all residents are protected from environmental pollution and can enjoy a clean and healthy environment. During Earth Week, the Administration is holding events throughout the Commonwealth spotlighting important initiatives, including the expansion of tree planting through the Greening the Gateway Cities Program, increasing access to healthy, nutritious food by supporting urban farms, and ensuring clean water by providing grant funding to local municipalities. On March 26, Baker signed comprehensive climate change legislation that includes nationleading provisions related to Environmental Justice. Recognizing the signifi cant impact of climate change on Environmental Justice communities overburdened by poor air quality and disproportionately high levels of pollution, the legislation statutorily defines Environmental Justice and environmental burdens, including climate change as an environmental burden. The legislation also expands Massachusetts Environmental Policy Act (MEPA) review to require an Environmental Impact Report for all projects that impact air quality within one mile of an Environmental Justice Neighborhood, and requires the Department of Environmental Protection to conduct a stakeholder process to develop a cumulative impact analysis as a condition of permitting certain projects. This change would, for the fi rst time, require the agency to evaluate not just individual project impacts but also historic environmental pollution throughout the community through the permit process. In December of 2020, the Baker-Polito Administration released two reports– the Massachusetts 2050 Decarbonization Roadmap Report and an interim 2030 Clean Energy and Climate Plan (CECP) – that detailed policies and strategies to reduce emissions and combat climate change, including an interim 2030 statewide emissions limit of 45 percent below 1990 levels. The roadmap outlined the need to enhance energy efficiency measures and decarbonize existing buildings, which would include most municipal and town buildings like schools, police departments, and water facilities.

He will be greatly missed and will live in our hearts forever. Memorial donations in P. Joseph Presti’s name may be made to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, www.lls.org. Josephine (Piazza) Amara O f Revere, formerly of the West End, passed away on Friday, April 16, at the age of 99. She was the devoted wife of the late Frank Amara; she is the loving mother of Dominic and his wife Virginia of Revere, and Anthony (Tony) and his wife Kathleen of Lynn. She leaves behind her grandchildren Stacy Amara and her partner Roderick Redman of Clarksville, MD, Nikki Amara Myers and her husband Richard of Needham, Ryan Amara and his wife Jenna of Tewksbury and Renee Carvalho and her husband Dennis of Cary, NC, and fi ve great-grandchildren. She was the beloved daughter of the late Antonio and Josephine Piazza, and the eldest sister of Mary Kessler and her husband Joseph of Braintree along with the late Helen, Paul, and Sebastiano “Jimmy” Piazza. Josephine was the sole proprietor of Josephine’s Cleansers, a dry cleaning and tailoring shop in Everett’s Woodlawn neighborhood. She loved spending time with her family, playing bingo, baking cookies and making pasta. Her unwavering desire for independence kept her driving and taking the bus into Boston well into her late 80s. She also lived on her own until three years ago. As the matriarch of the Amara Family, she will be wholeheartedly missed - her presence, her love, her stubbornness, and her spunk. Rest in Eternal Peace. In lieu of fl owers, donations may be made in her name to Brigham and Women’s Hospital Division of Renal (Kidney) Medicine in Boston or Chelsea Jewish Lifecare -165 Captains Row, Chelsea, MA 02150 – Attn: Joanne Thomas.
