CELEBRATING 30 YEARS AS REVERE’S LOCAL NEWS SOURCE Vol. 31, No.17 -FREEwww.advocatenews.net Free Every Friday MSBA Board votes Revere High School into Schematic Design phase Special to Th e Advocate S tate Treasurer Deborah Goldberg, chair of the Massachusetts School Building Authority (MSBA) and MSBA Executive Director/Deputy CEO John McCarthy recently announced that the MSBA Board of Directors voted to move Revere High School (RHS) into the Schematic Design phase. In the Schematic Design phase, the MSBA and the District will look at options to replace the existing RHS with a potential new facility. The next step is for the MSBA to work in collaboration with the District to produce detailed designs for a potential project. “Thanks to our collaborative work with local offi cials, we are working to build a 21st century educational facility that will provide Revere students with a topnotch learning environment,” said Goldberg.

McKenna recently toured the fi re station and said there is much potential in the building. “It’s a beautiful building and there is so much potential,” said McKenna. “The place needs to be cleaned out, but there is so much potential and so much room.” The councillor said she could see the large apparatus bay as space for a gallery and community room, while the fi ve sleeping quarters on the second fl oor could be converted into artists’ lofts.

Developers were before the City Council last Monday night with plans for razing the existing buildings at 25 and 55 American Legion Hwy., including a vacant Bank of America, and replacing them with new buildings to house the planned businesses. The plan still has to go before the City Council’s Zoning Subcommittee for further discussion. If it gets approvals from the city, the project will take a little over a year, with the buildings being constructed in a phased approach. That phased schedule means Pizza Days will only have to close for about a week during construction. “The intention is to raze both buildings and produce a new retail development,” said developer Paul Kneeland. “On the nose of the property closest to the rotary is a new structure, and that’s a Starbucks coffee shop. We’ve entered into a letter of intent with Starbucks; we’ve got a lease that we are negotiating; and that’s a freestanding, single tenant building, and it’s intended to take some of the pressure off the store that is just south of the property [in East Boston].” Two structures farther from the rotary will share a wall, with the larger structure housing a Convenient MD urgent care facility, and the smaller building will be home of the relocated Pizza Days. As part of the project, Kneeland said, there will be changes to the curb cuts, including the elimination of a curb cut that has been used as a cut through from Everett Avenue to American Legion Highway. “It’s really a pretty small, straightforward retail development which is an expansion of what I did across the street [at 339 Everett Ave.],” said Kneeland. “We are hoping to get underway soon, maybe in the next few months if we can get the cooperation of the city.” Several councillors praised the project, with Ward 4 Councillor Patrick Keefe stating he is happy to see an urgent care facility coming to Revere. Keefe said he is concerned about traffic from the Starbucks drive-through and would like to see a detail outside the coff ee shop for the opening months of its business. Ward 3 Councillor Anthony Cogliandro thanked Kneeland for taking extra measures to help Pizza Days remain in business during the construction. “As a small business owner … that is a really stand-up thing to do,” said Cogliandro. Councillor-at-Large Dan Rizzo praised Kneeland for his approach to development in the city and his past work at Bell Circle. “We talk a lot about development in the city, and developers, and oftentimes developers say they are going to do one thing, and then it often gets modifi ed, then it gets forgotten about and then nobody up here remembers; the council up here changes, and then we end up with a completely diff erent project,” said Rizzo. “From my experience in dealing with [Kneeland], everything [he] has said he is going to do [he] did and more.” Rizzo said he is also impressed that Kneeland has primarily focused on commercial redevelopment in the city. “Taking old buildings and old areas and making them vibrant again – these are the types of projects that are, for me, so easy to vote on,” said Rizzo. “It’s something that is going to make that area better and it’s going to clean it up.” LUNCH | SEE Page 2 do have free meals for breakfast and lunch, but this would also help any cities and towns that do not receive it,” she said. Bronsdon-Rizzo pointed to the support the bill received from other districts when it came time to back legislation important to the Revere schools, such as the enactment of the Student Opportunity Act. “Mrs. Rizzo makes a really good point that when something is good for kids, we should support it, even if it doesn’t directly benefit our students in Revere,” said Superintendent of Schools Dr. Dianne Kelly. “In this case, I am trying to put myself in the shoes of schools and my superintendent colleagues in other districts where kids have had free meals for three years now, and all of the sudden they are going to have to go back to paying. I think about the stigma that might cause for children, especially if their families have been adversely impacted fi nancially because of Covid.” While the legislation will not have a direct impact on Revere students, Kelly said it will benefi t many students across Massachusetts. School Committee Member Aisha Milbury-Ellis suggested that the committee look at backing a petition drive in support of the universal free meal legislation.

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, APRIL 29, 2022 Page 3 Visconti requests return to city’s shred days By Adam Swift C ity Council President Gerry Visconti wants to see the city once again off er shredder truck services for residents who wish to shred their personal documents. During Monday night’s meeting, the council supported a motion made by Visconti to off er the services twice per year, once at Griswold Park and the other event in the Beachmont area. “This was brought to my attention by a couple of residents, and I wanted to bring it in front of you,” Visconti told the council. “This service has been provided by, I believe, the previous administration where a shredder truck was off ered to the residents, and I would just like to bring it back if at all possible and have it down twice a year at two diff erent locations, trying to service both ends of the city.” Councillor-at-Large Dan Rizzo said he supports the initiative. “This used to be done through the Consumer Aff airs Offi ce, so maybe we can coordinate or send a memorandum because they can set it up with the state,” said Rizzo. “They can set it up and the state will come in and do it for free. It’s a great service and I think twice a year would be good, especially as the city has grown; I think just one day in one location probably doesn’t make sense anymore.” Councillor-at-Large Steve Morabito noted that the Consumer Aff airs Offi ce used to have a consumer shred day, and the AARP also hosted shredding days in the past. “I definitely think we should go back and do this twice a year, and I think we should also make it in sync with spring cleaning, because that’s when a large portion of residents shred,” said Morabito. Visconti said the Consumer Affairs Offi ce at the senior center does offer some small-scale shredding services for personal information, but that he believes residents need a largescale option, as well. In other business, Ward 3 GERRY VISCONTI City Council President Councillor Anthony Cogliandro presented a motion asking the mayor and police chief to look into the possibility of the city setting up a SafeTrade Station for the safe exchange of internet purchases. “I think it’s a good idea because of the number of internet sales we have on Craigslist and elsewhere,” said Cogliandro. Cogliandro said there are currently 18 cities in the state utilizing SafeTrade Stations, which are generally parking spaces on police department property or in a police station lobby where there is 24/7 monitoring.

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, APRIL 29, 2022 Page 5 Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen proposed for Squire Road By Adam Swift “The project before you today P opeyes Louisiana Kitchen, the national chain known for its fried chicken sandwiches, is looking to take over the site of the former Honey Dew Donuts on Squire Road, although some neighbors are concerned about trash and traffi c the restaurant could generate. The company is seeking a special permit from the City Council to redevelop the site and build a drivethrough window as part of the fast-food restaurant, according to Attorney Gerry D’Ambrosio, who represented Popeyes before the council last Monday night. The 304 Squire Rd. location is zoned for general business, and restaurants are allowed by right. The special permit Popeyes is seeking is strictly for the construction of the drivethrough window, according to D’Ambrosio. “This facility has been some sort of food distribution place, a restaurant or sub shop going back to the 1970s, at least,” said D’Ambrosio. The location was formerly home to a Santoro’s sub shop, and then a Tony Lena’s sub shop before Honey Dew operated at the site until about a year ago. is very diff erent; this is what I like to call a win-win situation,” said D’Ambrosio. “On the one hand you have a corporate-owned company like a Popeyes, so there are no franchisees here; you have a national corporation that puts together a budget every year for upkeep and maintenance.” D’Ambrosio also said Popeyes will be constructing a new, state-of-the-art building with new landscaping and buffer zones along the perimeter of the site. In addition, Popeyes will be closing off all access to Ward 6, with access to Derby Road and Sigourney Street closed off , according to D’Ambrosio. “The current project which is there, which can be operated by a matter of right, allows traffi c to fl ow into Derby Street,” he said. “I would also note, as a matter of right, the current owner could open up an access onto Sigourney Street; there’s no special permit required for that, either. This is a far superior project because it cuts the traffi c fl ow into the city of Revere and redirects it onto Squire Road.” However, some Derby Road residents said they are concerned about the potential use of the property. “We pay very high property taxes; we have a lot of pride of ownership on Derby Road, and all we do is pick up litter in front of our houses, morning, noon and night, from drive-through restaurants that are on Squire Road,” said Derby Road resident Michelle Kelley. “This is only going to exacerbate that problem; we’re going to have more of it; we’re going to have more traffi c. I understand that the traffi c is not going to be able to go down Derby Road exiting from the drivethrough, but that doesn’t prevent them from going down Derby Road otherwise, even if they went back onto Squire Road.” Kelley said she would like to see the city consider making Derby Road a one-way street to help eliminate some of the traffi c turning onto the street from Squire Road. Ward 6 Councillor Richard Serino said he was approached by a developer in the fall inquiring about redeveloping the Honey Dew parcel as a mixeduse development with commercial and residential components. “The residents of Ward 6 don’t want apartments, and I made clear that I want to keep Squire Road for commercial use,” said Serino. “We have the old Mobil site down the road that’s been vacant for literally 10 years that every summer is overgrown and disgusting. The Honeydew for the last two years has been overgrown, and if I lived on Derby Road, I wouldn’t want to be looking [at that].” Serino said he does believe the Popeyes proposal is a reasonable proposal. “But if the residents come out and don’t want it, then it reverts to by-right,” Gerry D’Ambrosio Attorney-at-Law Is Your Estate in Order?

Remember that mulch is combustible and can easily catch fi re.” The hazard is especially significant around residential structures because fires that start on the exterior of buildings are usually not detected early. By the time smoke and heat enter the building to trigger a fi re or smoke alarm or sprinkler system, the fi re is already large. Fortunately, many mulch fi res are noticed and extinguished before spreading to a building or motor vehicle. Provide proper smoking receptacles Smokers should never toss their cigarettes into mulch, dried leaves or other debris, and mulch should not be placed in a designated smoking area. To help reduce this unsafe behavior, businesses and homeowners using mulch to spruce up their landscaping should also provide and maintain safe receptacles for disposing of smoking materials. Metal containers with sand are best. Keep mulch at least 18 inches away from buildings Don’t place mulch directly against the side of a building. The Massachusetts Comprehensive Fire Safety Code (527 CMR 1.00, section prohibits the new application of mulch within 18 inches around combustible exteriors of buildings, such as wood or vinyl, but not brick or concrete. Residential buildings with six units or fewer are exempted from this regulation, but all homeowners might wish to adopt these safety practices voluntarily. The regulation applies to all other buildings, including commercial properties. Keep mulch piles at least 30 feet apart The heat generated by large piles of mulch can cause them to ignite, so it is important to maintain a safe distance between piles. This can help prevent a fi re in one pile from spreading to another pile or to a building. The Fire Code (527 CMR 1.00, sections and limits the size of mulch piles and requires distances of 30 feet between piles and 25 feet from the property line. Permits required to store more than 300 cubic yards of mulch Permits from the local fi re department are required wherever more than 300 cubic yards of mulch are produced or stored. Call 911 to report smoldering mulch beds Mulch can generate heat, and a smoldering pile of mulch can ignite. If you see a smoldering mulch bed, please call 911 so the fire department can make sure it is truly extinguished. Mulch can smolder for a long time before erupting into fl ames. Educate your staff: mulch safety pamphlet The state Department of Fire Services provides an educational pamphlet in English and Spanish on its Mulch Fire Safety page. It provides information that building managers, landscapers and distributors can use to educate their staff . Local fi re departments are encouraged to make it available as well.

AG Healey secures workers’ comp insurance rate decrease, saving Mass. businesses $80M M assachusetts businesses will save approximately $80 million under a settlement Attorney General Maura Healey reached with the State Rating Bureau (SRB) and the Workers’ Compensation Rating and Inspection Bureau (WCRIB). The settlement, which follows an intervention by the AG’s Offi ce in an administrative rate hearing at the state Division of Insurance, results in an average rollback of about 3.5 percent on workers’ compensation insurance rates. The new rates are set to go into eff ect on July 1. Massachusetts businesses are required to purchase workers’ compensation insurance to provide coverage for workers injured on the job, including medical costs and a portion of their lost wages. “This settlement will save millions of dollars for Massachusetts businesses – many of whom are still struggling to recover from the pandemic,” said Healey. “Not only does lowering workers’ compensation insurance rates help small businesses, allowing them to invest in higher wages and growth, but it also helps protect workers.” Workers’ compensation insurance rates are set periodically in administrative rate hearings before the Division of Insurance. The state’s insurance companies generally work together to prepare a single joint fi ling and submit that for approval to the Commissioner. The Massachusetts Attorney General’s Offi ce can intervene in these proceedings and litigate against the proposal to protect the public interest. In December 2021, the industry sought an overall statewide average rate increase of 2.7 percent, and the Attorney General’s Offi ce intervened in the rate proceeding, seeking a rate rollback for Massachusetts ratepayers. The industry agreed not only to abandon its request to increase rates, but also to apply an average rate rollback of 3.5 percent for policyholders starting in July. The Attorney General’s Office has also previously been successful in achieving workers’ compensation rate reductions. After Healey intervened in the rate hearings in 2020, insurers agreed to roll back rates by an average of 6.8 percent, saving Massachusetts customers about $80 million. In 2018 the Attorney General’s Office successfully secured a 12.9 percent average rate rollback on workers’ compensation insurance in the state, saving approximately $150 million for businesses. During the past 10 years, the Attorney General’s Offi ce has saved employers and small businesses hundreds of millions of dollars by intervening in workers’ compensation insurance administrative rate cases. These savings translate into more jobs for workers in the state. The Attorney General’s Offi ce’s Insurance and Financial Services Division represents the public interest and litigates administrative rate cases to ensure that rates are fair for Massachusetts policyholders. The Office has worked collaboratively with the SRB to achieve the rate reduction in the present workers’ compensation insurance rate case.

Member FDIC Member DIF ti-Cowan Senior Center as the facility reopens for the spring season. A new season brings more in-person events; a recent one featured Mayor Brian Arrigo. The mayor participated in a workout class with senior center fi tness instructor Sharon Fillyaw that focused on exercises that help prevent falls. Sharon calls classes with Mayor Arrigo challenges to see if he can keep up with the seniors. This latest Mayoral Challenge Fitness Class is playing on the RTV Community Channel, which is 8 and 1072 on Comcast, or 3 and 614 on RCN. In the same week, Mayor Arrigo was at the Youth In Motion facility of the For Kids Only program to talk about the Community Development Block Grant the city and program were recently awarded. The Mayor and State Representatives Jessica Giannino and Jeff Turco joined newly appointed HUD Regional Administrator Juana Matias and For Kids Only Executive Director Debbie Kneeland at the event. This grant touches a few areas of need in the city, but it also helps aid nonprofi t organizations like For Kids Only. A recording of the event is now playing on RTV GOV, which is channel 9 on Comcast or 13 and 613 on RCN. Tune in to the RevereTV Community Channel tonight at 7 p.m. to watch the newest episode of “Cooking Made Simple.” This episode premiered on all RTV outlets on Wednesday night. Chef Kelly Armetta made it to the kitchen studio last Friday to create a multicourse seasonal meal for the warmer weather approaching. Armetta always gets creative with planning meals and catering to seasons or holidays around the time of fi lming. After the premiere, this episode will air at various times over the next few weeks along with last year’s Mothers’ Day Special of “Cooking Made Simple.” Some RTV sports coverage returns on Saturday with the Boston Renegades football team. This team has some local players and is part of the Women’s Football Alliance. The game will be played at Harry Della Russo Stadium at 6 p.m. If you cannot make it to the game in person, RevereTV will be streaming live coverage on all outlets, including Facebook, YouTube and the RTV Community Channel. Replays of game coverage will play on television in the following weeks. RevereTV will be at home games all season.

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, APRIL 29, 2022 Page 9 John T. DiLiegro Foundation to host First Annual 5K on May 1 T his Sunday, May 1, the John T DiLiegro Foundation will host the First Annual John T. DiLiegro Foundation 5K to benefit glioblastoma brain cancer research. The run will take place beginning at 8 a.m. at the Whelan School and will last until the early afternoon. Runners will travel down Sargent Street, Washington Avenue, Lucia Avenue and Malden Street around the Revere Urban Trail. They will then move onto Broadway and up Cushman Avenue for a fi nish back at the Whelan School. Walkers will follow. The named streets will be closed for the duration of the race, and residents will be notifi ed in advance of traffi c disruptions. “My brother John T was diagnosed with a rare tumor known as glioblastoma brain cancer in February 2021,” said Karen DiLiegro. “After a courageous battle he lost his life in February 2022 to this horrible disease. It is my mission to raise awareness for research towards a cure. Please join me Sunday, May 1 for a 5K road race with all proceeds to benefi t his foundation.” John T was an esteemed community member who owned John’s Gas Station in Revere with his father, John DiLiegro Sr., for most of his 49 years. He was also DA Hayden announces grant funding opportunity for nonprofits S uff olk County District Attorney Kevin Hayden recently invited nonprofi t organizations throughout Suff olk County to apply for grant funding to support violence and substance use prevention and treatment programming. “I have had the privilege of serving on the board of several nonprofi ts, and I know the impact that my offi ce’s Community Reinvestment Grants can have on these nonprofits and the young people they serve,” said Hayden, who is currently on the boards of YOU Boston and the YMCA of Greater Boston. “The pandemic has placed added stress and demand on service providers as they responded to the increased need and adapted to new ways of delivering services. I’m grateful to the organizations that continue to do exceptional work every day supporting our young people and communities.” The Community Reinvestment Grant (CRG) program will provide funding of up to $10,000 to 501(c)3 nonprofi t organizations in Boston, Chelsea, Revere and Winthrop. Those that off er “violence prevention, substance use intervention and treatment, trauma and mental health support, and mentoring and educational programs for Suff olk County youth and adults are encouraged to apply.” State law allows prosecutors to distribute up to 10 percent of assets seized in narcotics prosecutions to communitybased organizations for crime prevention and substance use treatment. “Prevention and treatment programs are key to public safety and building a more equitable society,” Hayden said. “Our community partners are among our most valuable institutions, and I’m proud to be able to off er this funding opportunity.” Applications are due no later than May 24.

He loved to run road races and 5Ks and rarely did so without his running partner and fi ancé, Candice Borden. “There was a certain energy when John T. walked into a room. He was a vibrant fi tness enthusiast who was full of life,” Candice remembers. “He motivated everyone around him whether it was with work, fi tness, sober life or just having fun. Before being diagnosed at the age of 49 with Glioblastoma grade 4 brain cancer, I never knew this horrible disease existed. With this 5k, and the start of the John T DiLiegro Foundation by his sister Karen, our goal is to raise awareness and funds to support research in hopes of fi nding a cure, while helping families heal. John T. is still motivating me and a lot of others with this 5k.

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, APRIL 29, 2022 Page 11 Malden and Revere High School students team up with police to play ball By Tara Vocino M ultiple agencies throughout Revere and Malden collaborated to provide a comprehensive program with a focus on building a healthy community last Friday night at Revere High School. As part of the Revere Cares Mini Grant series, the Revere Police Activities League (PAL), the Revere Police Department, Revere Parks and Recreation and the Revere/Malden High School boys’ and girls’ basketball teams engaged in on court competition, lectures and discussions with Revere police offi cers and other community building activities. The boys’ and girls’ teams from Lynn English High School, Winthrop High School and Malden High School joined the Revere High School boys’ and girls’ basketball teams for a successful evening of events. Revere Police Chief David Callahan addressed the participants and credited the student athletes for their dedication and commitment for attending the event on a Friday night during school vacation week.

Page 12 THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, APRIL 29, 2022 Baseball Pats edge Rams in key league battle By Greg Phipps T he Revere High School baseball team was not entering Wednesday’s key showdown against Greater Boston League (GBL)–leading Lynn Classical on a high note. The Patriots had suff ered a disappointing loss to Somerville on Monday and were looking to regroup. They did just that, as pitcher Kyle Cummings came through with another strong outing to help lead Revere to a 4-2 triumph over the fi rstplace Rams at historic Fraser Field in Lynn. Cummings hurled all seven innings for the victory. He was touched for fi ve hits and he struck out eight hitters. The Patriots dropped a close 3-1 aff air to the Rams at home in the season opener several weeks back. Wednesday’s win seems to have established Revere as a bonafi de league contender. It was just the second loss of the season for Classical. Clutch hitting is what got the Patriots over the top on Wednesday. Max Doucette brought in two runs with a hit, and Cummings aided his own cause with a hit and an RBI. Ollie Svendsen and Domenic Boudreau also contributed hits in the victory. The win improved the Patriots to 6-3 overall on the season. They host Cambridge in a non-league contest Saturday morning (scheduled 10 a.m. start) and then move on to face Lynn English on the road on Monday, May 2. The Patriots defeated the Bulldogs 6-2 at home earlier this season. In Monday’s 8-4 loss to Somerville, Revere allowed six unearned runs. After the game, Patriots Head Coach Mike Manning acknowledged that it’s hard to win when a team gives up that many unearned tallies. The Patriots did get a good off ensive performance from Mike Popp, who smashed PLAY BALL | FROM Page 11 ing his players throughout the community.

Girls’ Head Coach Travonne Berry Rogers have been involved with the PAL program for a number of years. “It is exciting and rewarding to see so many of these young men come up through the PAL program and now they are building successful programs of their own,” Oldoni said. “It extends our message of the importance of academics, athletics, sportsmanship, and civic responsibility.” to an irrevocable trust is that you start the five year look back period if one of the goals is to protect your home against a possible nursing home stay. If structured as a grantor-type trust, the Trust would be able to sell the home and you would still be able to take advantage of the $500,000 capital gain exclusion on the sale of a principal residence for a married couple ($250,000 for a single person). If the home is sold, the sales proceeds would have to remain in Trust and invested by the Trustee, whether in a certifi cate of deposit, savings account, stock or bond portfolio, etc. The sale of the home does not start the fi ve year look back period all over again. The Trustee may also reinvest the sales proceeds in another principal residence. The net sales proceeds of the home must be used to purchase the replacement home. If the purchase price of the replacement property is much less than the sales proceeds of the home that is sold, the difference would remain in the Trust to be invested accordingly. Typically, the Settlor of the Trust would have the right to receive income generated by the Trust. This income could serve to supplement the Settlor’s living expenses. The income would be distributed to the Settlor and taxed on his or her income tax return. If the Settlor were to go into a nursing home after the expiration of the fi ve year look back period, the Trust principal would be protected. Any net income derived by the Trust would be paid to the nursing home as part of the Patient Paid Amount (PPA), along with social security income, pension income, etc. Another benefi t of transferring your home to an irrevocable trust as opposed to directly transferring your home to your children with a reserved life estate, is that the Trust will protect your children in the event of a divorce or civil litigation case against them. If you prefer, you can include a provision Malden High School players, pictured from left to right: Front row: Kevin Goncalves, Clifton Joseph, Jose Ferreira and Ethan Phegarasai; back row: DeMarco Ross, Peyton Carron, Justin Bell, Ransley Saint-Jean and Akim Lubin. in the Trust that one child will serve as Trustee of your other child’s Trust share (and vice versa) or you can include a provision for the appointment of a disinterested Trustee. If a son or a daughter were to predecease you, his or her share would remain in Trust for his or her own children to be administered pursuant to the terms of the Trust. That child’s share would not constitute part of his or her probate estate which involve significant time delays and cost. Furthermore, if your child died prior to you while receiving MassHealth benefi ts after the age of 55, MassHealth would not be able to pursue repayment from the Trust share belonging to your deceased child. MassHealth can only collect against the probate estate. This is another reason why a Trust is far superior than a deed to a child with a reserved life estate. With so many people living well into their 80’s and 90’s, it is not uncommon for a child to die before his or her parents. If that were to happen, the child’s estate would have to be probated as the “remainder” interest in the home was owned by the child at the time of his or her death. As part of the probate process, MassHealth is required to be notified of the probate proceedings. It is at this time that MassHealth will determine if benefi ts have been paid to the deceased. If so, MassHealth will fi le a claim in probate court in order to seek repayment. Placing the home in an irrevocable Trust would avoid these complications. MassHealth would not be able to lien the home as the home was not given directly to the deceased son or daughter. It was deeded to the irrevocable Trust instead. Joseph D.

The three Senate roll calls are on proposed amendments to an energy bill, approved by the Senate, which would expand the clean energy industry and reduce emissions from the transportation and building sectors across the state with the goal of reaching net-zero emissions by 2050. There were no roll calls in the House or Senate last week. REPUBLICAN ALTERNATIVE TO ENERGY BILL (S 2819) Senate 3-36, rejected a Republican version of the energy bill that ~ LEGAL NOTICE ~                            Estate of:   Date of Death:  CITATION ON PETITION FOR FORMAL ADJUDICATION To all interested persons: A Petition for                of   requesting that the Court enter a formal Decree and Order and for such other relief as requested in the Petition.

The GOP version would create a central Decarbonization and Energy Independence Fund that would be funded by $250 million from state funding and another $250 million from the state’s portion of federal funding from the American Rescue Plan Act. Supporters of the GOP bill said the Independence Fund would be used to modernize the state’s electric grid, provide more rebates for the purchase of electric vehicles and charging stations, provide grants to regional transit authorities and local school districts for the purchase of zeroemission busses and other vehicles and facilitate tax credits for the transition of commercial vehicles and equipment to lower emission substitutes. “We take the challenges of reducing carbon emissions and supplying the state’s energy needs seriously,” said Senate Republican Leader Bruce Tarr (RGloucester). “And we are putting a plan on the table to eff ectively use state and federal funding to meet the most pressing needs involved in addressing those challenges, while working to ensure that consumers have access to the energy that they need without undue risk of the rate shock that can accompany ambitious goals without the energy supplies and infrastructure to meet them. Our plan directs attention and spending to the places they need to go today to make cost-effective diff erences for tomorrow.” Opponents of the GOP bill said it is a truncated version of the Democrat’s progressive bill and leaves out many good parts of the Democratic version including a provision that would remove biomass from the defi nition of clean energy sources. They said that large wood-burning electric power plants should not be counted as clean energy like wind and solar because biomass burned at that level creates tiny particles that get into people’s lungs. Sen. Mike Barrett (D-Lexington) got a plug in for Attorney General Maura Healey and Sen. Sonia Chang-Diaz (D-Boston), the two women who are running for the Democratic nomination for governor, when he said that another diff erence in the two versions is that the Democratic one gives the next governor, “whoever she may be,” an opportunity to shape policy. (A “Yes” vote is for the Republican version. A “No” vote is against it). Sen. Lydia Edwards No OFF-SHORE WIND (S 2819) Senate 5-34, rejected a new amendment that would require the solicitation and procurement of a statewide off shore wind capacity total of 10,600 megawatts by 2030. Another provision would establish an ocean ecosystem protection practices designed to avoid, minimize and mitigate impact to wildlife, natural resources, ecosystems and traditional or existing water-dependent uses. Sen. Marc Pacheco (D-Taunton) said he sponsored the new amendment because offshore wind is a critical component of the state’s clean energy future that must be incorporated as quickly as possible in order to ensure compliance with the state’s Global Warming Solutions Act requirements. He noted that the new amendment would require the procurement of 10,600 megawatts by 2030 instead of 10,000 megawatts by 2035 that was required in an earlier amendment. “While the Senate acted favorably on [the earlier] amendment, which I also supported as a cosponsor, [this new] amendment that would have required the procurement of an additional 600 megawatts by 2030 instead of by 2035—that is, fi ve years sooner,” said Pacheco. “Although I am pleased that the Senate took favorable action to include additional off shore wind capacity, ultimately we must act with more urgency to seize the economic benefi ts of a robust statewide offshore wind workforce and achieve compliance with our updated emission reduction laws.” “I am a fi erce proponent of off - shore wind, and I’m proud that the Senate adopted [the original] amendment which I fi led to bolster off shore wind procurement,” said Sen. Julian Cyr (D-Truro) who voted against the new amendment. “The [original] amendment increases the commonwealth’s target to at least 10,000 megawatts of off shore wind generation capacity by 2035—which will account for a third of the nation’s offshore wind goal. The [new] amendment was redundant, considering the Senate already took action to advance the [original] amendment—hence why I voted no.” (A “Yes” vote is for the new amendment. A “No” vote is against it). Sen. Lydia Edwards No COMMERCIAL FISHING (S 2819) Senate 39-0, approved an amendment that would provide a preference for offshore wind proposals that can clearly demonstrate meaningful collaboration with commercial fi shing in order to foster the long-term coexistence and sustainability of the two industries. “As the off shore wind industry continues to develop, we must take steps to protect our existing commercial fi shing fl eet that produces an enormous impact on our ports and the Massachusetts economy,” said sponsor Sen. Mark Montigny (D-New Bedford). “By emphasizing the importance of commercial fi shing during the development and consideration of off shore wind proposals, we can help ensure that a robust fi shing fl eet can coexist with a new renewable energy industry that can increase energy independence and reduce carbon emissions.” (A “Yes” vote is for the amendment). Sen. Lydia Edwards Yes HOW LONG WAS LAST WEEK’S SESSION? Beacon Hill Roll Call tracks the length of time that the House and Senate were in session each week. Many legislators say that legislative sessions are only one aspect of the Legislature’s job and that a lot of important work is done outside of the House and Senate chambers. They note that their jobs also involve committee work, research, constituent work and other matters that are important to their districts. Critics say that the Legislature does not meet regularly or long enough to debate and vote in public view on the thousands of pieces of legislation that have been fi led. They note that the infrequency and brief length of sessions are misguided and lead to irresponsible late-night sessions and a mad rush to act on dozens of bills in the days immediately preceding the end of an annual session.. During the week of April 18-22, the House met for a total of 57 minutes and the Senate met for a total of 42 minutes. Mon. April 18 No House session No Senate session Tues.

How to Find Educational Trips for Retirees Who Love to Learn Dear Savvy Senior, My wife and I planning to travel much more frequently in retirement and are very interested in educational trips and adventures. Can you recommend any groups or firms that specialize in this type of travel geared towards retirees? Love to Learn Dear Love, Educational travel, which combines travel with in-depth learning opportunities has become a very popular way of travel among retirees. Here are a few good places to turn to fi nd these types of trips in the U.S. and abroad. Tour Organizations One of the best places to start is with Road Scholar (RoadScholar.org), which invented the idea of educational travel for older adults in the mid-1970s. The Boston-based organization offers 5,500 learning adventures in all 50 states and 150 countries. You can search for learning adventures by location, interest, activity level and price. Road Scholar also off ers “Choose Your Pace” senior travel tours that allow participants to adjust their level of challenge on a daily basis. And for skip-gen vacations, they offer tours designed specifi cally for grandparents traveling with their grandkids. Another excellent option is Smithsonian Journeys (SmithsonianJourneys.org), a nonprofit travel group affi liated with the Smithsonian Museum. They lead 350 educational trips a year on every continent that are led by experts from a variety of fi elds — academia, the diplomatic corps, scientists and curators, among others. If you’re seeking more adventure, you may want to consider ElderTreks (www.ElderTreks. com), which off ers 50-plus travelers small-group adventures by both land and sea in more than 100 countries. Their trips center on adventure, culture and nature, letting you get up close and personal with the locals. Academic Travel Another good source for educational trips is colleges and universities. Some of my favorites include Cornell University’s Adult University (SCE.Cornell.edu/travel), which off ers a half-dozen educational trips and courses in the U.S. and abroad, each lasting a few days to a week or more. And Stanford Travel/Study (Alumni. Stanford.edu) that off ers educational travel journeys to more than 80 countries each year. Most college/university trips are led by faculty who share their expertise, along with regional experts and local guides, and you don’t need to be an alumnus to participate. Also check out the Traveling Professor (TravelingProfessor. com), a small-group touring company led by Steve Solosky, formerly a professor at the State University of New York. They offer a dozen or so tours abroad each year and take between 8 and 16 people. Cruising Options If you enjoy cruising, consider Grand Circle Travel (GCT.com), which off ers educational travel aboard small ships, and Naturalist Journeys (NaturalistJourneys. com), which specializes in nature and birding tours. American Cruise Lines (AmericanCruiseLines.com) also off ers more than 35 river and coastal itineraries in the Northeast, Southeast, Pacifi c Northwest and along the Mississippi River. And it has themed cruises (Lewis and Clark, Mark Twain, Civil War, etc.) for people with specifi c historical, literary or other interests.

The Project Scope and Budget Agreement and a Project Funding Agreement remain contingent upon the District gaining full ownership, control and exclusive use of the proposed site. The District had identifi ed (in its Statement of Interest) numerous defi ciencies and structural integrity issues, including electrical, mechanical and plumbing issues. Additionally, the presence of hazardous materials was identifi ed. “The new Revere High School will mean a better learning and teaching location for students and teachers,” said McCarthy. The MSBA partners with Massachusetts communities to support the design and construction of educationally appropriate, flexible, sustainable and cost-effective public school facilities. Since its inception in 2004, the Authority has made more than 1,750 site visits to more than 250 school districts as part of its due diligence process and has made more than $15.8 billion in reimbursements for school construction projects. ~ LEGAL NOTICE ~                            Estate of:    Date of Death:  CITATION ON PETITION FOR FORMAL ADJUDICATION To all interested persons: A Petition for                 of   requesting that the Court enter a formal Decree and Order and for such other relief as requested in the Petition.
