THE ADVOCATE - A HOUSEHOLD WORD IN REVERE FOR 30 YEARS! Vol.30, No.17 -FREEwww.advocatenews.net Free Every Friday 781-286-8500 Friday, April 30, 2021 Classic Start: Patriots shutout Lynn Classical in opener, 18-0 By Greg Phipps T he Revere Patriots pretty much picked up where they left off in 2019 by blanking the Lynn Classical Rams, 18-0, in their 2020-21 season opener last Friday evening at Manning Field in Lynn. Revere was coming off one of the best campaigns in its school history, when it fi nished 10-1 overall and advanced to the Div. 4 North title game. With the traditional 2020 fall season being erased due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Patriots had not seen game action since Thanksgiving of 2019. The wait was well worth it, as Revere produced more than 300 yards of offense against the Rams and senior quarterback Calvin Boudreau connected on 12 of 18 passes for 176 yards and a touchdown. The defense was stellar as well. A sack in the end zone in the opening period gave the Patriots their first points, and the Ram off ense was, for the most part, kept in check. A 64-yard march was capped off by Dillon Day's 16-yard touchdown reception. The subsequent two-point conversion gave Revere a 10-0 lead midway through the second quarter. The Patriots were initially planning to open a week earlier against neighboring Everett, but that game never materialized. Head coach Lou Cicatelli was obviously pleased to see his team fi nally get a chance to compete in a game. “It feels great to come back and play,” he told the press after the victory. “Especially when you come to Manning Field and get a tough win on the road. We’re just OFF & RUNNING: Pats’ Running Back Mark Galvez sprints into the end zone for a two-point conversion as Pat’s quarterback Calvin Boudreau looks on in the background during Revere’s 18-0 win against Lynn Classical on Friday.

Currently, residents receive one large blue barrel from the city for trash, and if they want an additional barrel, they have to buy it from the city for $75. Councillor-at-Large George Rotondo said he thinks it is an unfair burden on residents who already own barrels that otherwise meet the city requirements. At Monday night’s City Council meeting, Rotondo introduced a motion that would allow residents to obtain a city waiver sticker for those barrels GEORGE ROTONDO Councillor-at-Large that meet requirements. “I’ve gotten numerous emails from people getting ticketed for BARREL | SEE Page 10 Sisters Margaret McPherson and Jean Cabelus joined the protest against DCR parking meters last Saturday morning at Revere Beach.

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, APRIL 30, 2021 Page 3 Revere Beach meters continue to be sore spot with City Council By Adam Swift T he state Department of Conservation & Recreation’s (DCR) move to install parking meters along Revere Beach continues to attract the ire of city offi cials and residents. The topic was the subject of several motions and much conversation at Monday night’s City Council meeting, even as several councillors praised Mayor Brian Arrigo and local state legislators to wrangle some concessions out of the DCR. DCR’s initial plans for the program included metered parking along Revere Beach Boulevard from Eliot Circle to Carey Circle. Last week, Arrigo announced an agreement where no meters would be installed on the west side of Revere Beach Boulevard from Revere Street to Carey Circle and that nearly 200 24/7, residentonly parking spaces would be created and that all of Ocean Avenue would be designated as 24/7, resident-only parking. City Council President Anthony Zambuto announced that the mayor was taking further steps in negotiations with DCR and that all Revere residents will be issued beach parking stickers allowing for parking on the westerly side of Revere Beach Boulevard. “It amounts to a fairly good compromise under the circumstances that we were at a couple of weeks ago,” said Zambuto. “Every citizen that has a car registered in the city of Revere will receive a beach sticker that allows [them] to park on the westerly side of the beach from Revere Street to Carey Circle and all of Ocean Avenue. We can continue to talk about this, but I dare say you are not going to change the agreement that’s already been made.” Still, several councillors expressed their dismay at the limits of the agreement and that America’s Oldest Public Beach will be marred by the installation of parking meters at all. Councillor-at-Large George Rotondo said the DCR meters will impact 1,700 parking spaces in a city where 23,000 residents own cars. “This is just foolish, quite honestly, putting meters down there will have a huge impact,” said Rotondo. While residents will be eligible for beach stickers, he noted that many of the senior citizens along the boulevard rely on occupational and physical therapists and other caregivers for at-home services. Rotondo noted that the move to metered spaces will also create acrimony where people are fi ghting for spots near the larger residential developments along the beach. Rotondo did praise an eff ort by State Representative Jeff rey Turco to fi le a bill earmarking the money obtained from the Revere Beach meters for the upkeep and preservation of the beach and its amenities. “I applaud the mayor for trying his best to get what pretty much no one could get done, except for the governor, and shame on the governor,” he said. Rotondo added that there are currently no meters along similar beaches in the state, such as Carson Beach, Malibu Beach and Lynn Beach, although Zambuto noted that rumor has it that meters could be coming to the spots across the state. Ward 1 Councillor Joanne McKenna expressed her frustration that the meter and parking concessions do not extend in a more southerly direction toward some of the larger apartment complexes in her ward. “The residents who live at the beginning of the beach are not getting the same as those on Revere Street all the way up to the Point of Pines,” said McKenna. Ward 2 Councillor Ira Novoselsky said he agrees with many of the frustrations expressed by his fellow councillors, but that it would be hard to extract more concessions from the DCR. “We are at the point now where what we see is what we get,” said Novoselsky. Thorndike Street resident Wayne Rose said he was disgusted by the DCR meter installations. “We don’t have meters here; we’ve never had them” said Rose. “Even in the heyday, the state never tried to make money on this beach because it is a historic beach.” Rossetti Cowan Senior Center Reopens Monday, May 3 REVERE – The Revere Rossetti Cowan Senior Center (25 Winthrop Ave) announced it will open its doors to seniors for the fi rst time in over a year on Monday, May 3.

During the last 19 years, I have continued to work to make our area a better place to live. I had Stop signs installed on Shirley Avenue next to Costa Park for the protection of our children and residents along with upgraded lighting. New stop signs have been installed on Standish Road, Garfi eld Avenue and Kimball Avenue. Many streets and sidewalks in Ward Two are now on the reconstruction list after many years of neglect. More than 27 streets have been repaved with more to come this year. Additional sidewalk and street work is ongoing with more scheduled this spring, during the summer and the fall. Through my eff orts and cooperation with DCR and developers on Ocean Avenue, we have had Ocean Avenue partially repaved with more to come. Through my efforts with MDOT and Safe Routes, we have upgraded sidewalks and handicap ramps on many streets and sidewalks leading through our neighborhood and around the Garfi eld School. With funding from the Community Improvement Trust Fund obtained from the various private construction projects, Curtis Park has been renovated, the public stairs at Hillside Avenue have been replaced and the upgrading of storefronts and signs on Shirley Avenue is ongoing. The replacement of the public stairs at Campbell Ave. is scheduled for late summer early fall. IRA NOVOSELSKY Ward Two Councillor Your streets are continuously swept, old trees are being trimmed and removed and new trees have been planted on many of our streets. In other areas of the Ward, I am proud to have sponsored National Night Out at Curtis Park for the past 17 years and to have decorated Shirley Avenue and Costa Park for the Christmas holiday. Currently, we are working with MassWorks to fund the renovations of Shirley Avenue to include wider sidewalks and additional lighting. The passageway to Wonderland Plaza at the dead end of Walnut Avenue, along Kimball Avenue, has been renovated and illuminated for safe passage. Sandler Square at Dehon Street and Centennial Avenue is being renovated with additional lighting, benches and tables. The renovation of Flaherty Park and Fitzhenry Square Park are under review for future renovations. My work with local civic and Veteran organizations over the years has been rewarding and very fulfi lling and I am proud to continue my affi liations with these hard working groups. I have been honored by the Revere Elks, The Neighborhood Developers, WEE, The Revere Community Committee of Ward 2, The Revere Chamber of Commerce, American Legion and the Jewish War Veterans as the Man of the Year. In 2018, I was proud to work with a private developer to bring 30 housing units for veterans only to Shirley Avenue. I was born in Ward Two, I grew up in Ward Two and I have raised my family in Ward Two. As you can see, my heart and soul belongs to Ward Two and the City of Revere. As a City Councillor, my number one priority is the welfare of Revere and its residents. I retired from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts after 33 years and from the Massachusetts National Guard and Army Reserves after 27 years of military service. I am married to Rochelle (Gaber). We have one son, Seth, who is married to Jeannemarie (Mancuso), and two grandchildren, Olivia Rose who graduated from Revere High School and Charleigh Jaye, who attends the Revere Public Schools.

City Council backs resolution denouncing human trafficking By Adam Swift T he arrest of the owner of Crystal’s Day Spa on Washington Avenue on human trafficking charges earlier this month sent shockwaves throughout the community. Monday night the City Council supported a resolution fi led by Councillors George Rotondo, Jessica Ann Giannino and Richard Serino denouncing human traffi cking. Rotondo said he was outraged by what happened on Washington Avenue, adding that human traffi cking and sex traffi cking is a $36 billion worldwide business. “You always hear about human traffi cking on TV and the news and it’s scary,” said Serino. “When you fi nd out it’s in your neighborhood, down the street from where you grew up and right on Washington Avenue where you go for coff ee and breakfast – it’s happening right under your nose and you don’t realize it.” Serino said he was shocked and saddened by the news and that his heart goes out to all the victims who were traffi cked at that location. “I think this resolution is a great way for our City Council to show that we stand in solidarity with those victims of human traffi cking, not only at this spa, but all around the world,” said Serino. Giannino said it was horrifying to hear about the traffi cking operation operating in such close proximity to her home, adding that traffi cking is a scourge in many urban areas. “I’d like to think that this is an isolated inciRESOLUTION | SEE Page 6

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, APRIL 30, 2021 Page 7 Inello, city appear close to agreement on 727 Revere Beach Parkway By Adam Swift C ity officials, neighbors and the owner of 727 Revere Beach Pkwy. look like they have come to an agreement on the future of the property. A representative for Robert Inello was before the City Council on Monday night with the latest plan for the property, which calls for self-storage units in one unit of a two-story building, and the other unit proposed as the location of Inello’s electrical contracting business. Prior proposals for residential units and a larger self-storage business at the site had been met with opposition by neighbors. The new proposal will have less traffi c than the previous plan, and the building height is being reduced by 10 feet to 31 feet, according to Attorney Kari-Ann Greene, who was representing Inello. “This has the support of the ward councillor, and it’s a great project for the city and provides an opportunity to keep Mr. Inello’s business in the city,” said Greene. Niko Kostopoulos, a resident of nearby Mill Street, said he wasn’t necessarily opposed to the proposal, but said he had concerns about truck traffic from the electrical business. “When he had the electrical business there before, there was a problem with trucks traveling down Mill Street at a high rate of speed all the time,” he said. Kostopoulos said he also hoped the property would be properly baited for rat control, since the property has been vacant for some time. “We are certainly going to hold him accountable for all of these things through the building department,” said City Council President Anthony Zambuto. “To me, this use looks better than what was approved before [the larger selfstorage building] and less offensive than what was going to go there.” Taft Street resident James Derrico said neighbors met with owner Robert Inello and Ward 1 Councillor Joanne McKenna and are excited to have something appropriate to the neighborhood on the lot. “As long as it stays as it says on the plan and is kept cleaned up, we don’t have a problem with this structure,” said Derrico. McKenna said she has talked to several neighbors who live across the street from the site and they have told her they have no issues with the project as it has been presented. McKenna said the biggest issue with the self-storage buildRevereTV Spotlight R evereTV has some sporting event coverage coming for you!

He added that the trash is picked up at Revere Housing Authority properties, even though they are using a diff erent barrel than the city-approved version. “People are getting ticketed for using a barrel they were asked to have before, and they can’t aff ord to buy an additional $75 barrel,” Rotondo said. Ward 2 Councillor Ira Novoselsky said he believes there isn’t an overriding need to change the current system. “We have a great pickup system now, and it even looks good; everyone has the blue barrels,” he said. Novoselsky said everyone in the city gets one blue barrel, with one per every unit in a multifamily apartment building up to six units. “I don’t think we ought to change the ordinance,” he said. “People are not forced to buy new barrels – it’s their own choice – and if they use the barrel properly and don’t put all the recyclable material in that blue barrel and use the brown barrels like they are supposed to, they wouldn’t have a problem.” Novoselsky said the issue should be discussed in the City Council’s Public Works Subcommittee, where councillors can get input from the Board of Health and Public Works Department. City Council President Anthony Zambuto said the issue will be forwarded to that subcommittee. Ward 4 Councillor Patrick Keefe said he can see both sides of the issue. “I don’t want to see people, especially now, being fi ned, but I do like the uniformity of the barrels and I think the program has been very positive,” said Keefe. “However, if there’s need for some leniency … that would be okay. If the barrels are not overflowing and in good shape [and] are, in fact, rodent proof, I would like to see a little bit of leniency.” Rotondo reiterated that the barrels people are being fi ned for are the exact same barrels as provided by the city, with the exception of the color. “What bothers me most is that people are being fi ned,” he said.

Page 12 THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, APRIL 30, 2021 Revere residents share mixed emotions about paid parking on Revere Beach Protest DCR’s installation of parking meters along Revere Beach Boulevard By Tara Vocino A pproximately 50 people gathered to protest parking meters along Revere Beach on Saturday morning. “People are starting to fi ght back,” event organizer Wayne Rose said. “We’re getting plenty of beeps.” During the protest, residents shared why they’re against the meters, and whether nonresidents should have to pay to park along the beach. Residents, who have a sticker on their dashboard, won’t have to pay due to their location. Resident Stephen Fiore said it was news to him that they were installing meters. “It’s a terrible idea, especially [for those] who live at the end of the beach, who will get hit with a nice ticket if they host a party,” Fiore said. “They’ll be hit with a nice ticket if they forget to pay.” However, Fiore thinks the state should charge nonresidents money, if necessary, to maintain bathrooms. On the contrary, Paul Hawkins believes that nonresidents shouldn’t have to pay. “Since it is America’s First Public Beach, it’s for everyone,” Hawkins said. “Revere people don’t support it, which was done behind their backs.” Daily beachgoer Margaret McPherson, who is a senior, said she can’t aff ord to pay daily. Michael Ferrara said he’s angry about this. “Why can’t local At a podium on Saturday, speaker Peter Martino addressed the attendees at the rally against parking meters.

Originally, residents also had to pay, but after a public outcry, changes were made thanks to Mayor Brian Arrigo and the city councillors reaching out to the state. Protestors against parking meters received many beeps in front of the William Reinstein Memorial Bandstand on Saturday morning.

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, APRIL 30, 2021 Page 13 Should You Prepay Your Funeral? Dear Savvy Senior, My wife and I have been thinking about preplanning our funerals now so our kids won’t have to later, but we would like to fi nd out if it’s a good idea to prepay. What can you tell us? Living on a Budget Dear Living, Planning your funerals in advance is defi nitely a smart move. Not only does it give you and your wife time to make a thoughtful decision on the type of service you want, it also allows you to shop around to fi nd a good funeral provider, and it will spare your family members the burden of making these decisions at an emotional time. But preplanning a funeral doesn’t mean you have to prepay too. In fact, the Funeral Consumer Alliance, a national nonprofi t funeral consumer protection organization, doesn’t recommend it unless you need to spend down your fi nancial resources so you can qualify for Medicaid. Here’s what you should know. Preneed Arrangements Most funeral homes today offer what is known as “preneed plans,” which allow you to prearrange for the type of funeral services you want and prepay with a lump sum or through installments. The funeral home either puts your money in a trust fund with the payout triggered by your death or buys an insurance policy naming itself as the benefi ciary. If you’re interested in this route, make sure you’re being guaranteed the services you specify at the contracted price. Some contracts call for additional payments for final expense funding, which means that if the funeral home’s charges increase between the time you sign up and the time you sign off , somebody will have to pay the diff erence. Here are some additional questions you should ask before committing: • Can you cancel the contract and get a full refund if you change your mind? • Will your money earn interest? If so, how much? Who gets it? • If there is an insurance policy involved, is there a waiting period before it takes eff ect? How long? • Are the prices locked in or will an additional payment be required at the time of death? • Are you protected if the funeral home goes out of business or if it’s bought out by another company? • What happens if you move? Can the plan be transferred to another funeral home in a different state? • If there’s money left over after your funeral, will your heirs get it, or does the home keep it? If you decide to prepay, be sure to get all the details of the agreement in writing and give copies to your family so they know what’s expected. If your family isn’t aware that you’ve made plans, your wishes may not be carried out. And if family members don’t know that you’ve prepaid the funeral costs, they could end up paying for the same arrangements. Other Payment Option While prepaying your funerals may seem like a convenient way to go, from a fi nancial point of view, there are better options available. For example, if you have a life insurance policy, many policies will pay a lump sum when you die to your benefi ciaries to be used for your funeral expenses. The payment is made soon after you die and doesn’t have to go through probate. Or you could set up a payable-on-death (or POD) account at your bank or credit union, naming the person you want to handle your arrangements as the benefi ciary. POD accounts also are called Totten Trusts. With this type of account, you maintain control of your money, so you can tap the funds in an emergency, collect the interest and change the benefi ciary. When you die, your beneficiary collects the balance without the delay of probate. Send your senior questions to: Savvy Senior, P.O. Box 5443, Norman, OK 73070, or visit SavvySenior. org.

Earlier this year, a proposal by DLM Realty to bump up the approved eight residential units with seven parking spaces to a project with 15 residential units and no parking spaces at that address was met with concern by several city councillors and neighbors. The new owner of the property, Charles Lightbody of Middleton, is proposing a plan with approximately the same number of units as in DLM’s plan, but with no expansion of the building itself. “The modifi cation deals with an internal change in the number of units, not an expansion of the three-story building that is there,” said Attorney Joseph Catoggio, representing Lightbody. “The application reduces the request from the prior owner from 15 units to 14 units. The proposal is in line with the current trend of residential construction which calls for smaller units that are close to public transportation.” Lightbody has met with Ward 2 Councillor Ira Novoselsky and neighbors to address concerns that were raised during the prior application process, Catoggio said. “Hopefully, we have addressed a number of the concerns, and we look forward to continuing the application in the zoning subcommittee,” he said. Novoselsky said the prior application was controversial, but he noted that Lightbody has already taken some steps to secure the property for the protection of the neighborhood. “We also had a neighborhood meeting with the immediate abutters who had concerns from the prior owner, and Mr. Lightbody has agreed to address every single item that the prior owner did not come through for, plus a few more items,” said Novoselsky. “It’s working out so far, and Mr. Lightbody is already addressing some of the dangerous situations that occurred, and he plans on starting [construction] after the appeal period if this is approved.” City Council President Anthony Zambuto moved the application to a future meeting of the council’s zoning subcommittee. During the application process for 1540 Northshore Rd., DLM Realty also brought forth another controversial proposal for 7-9 Dehon St. requesting a special permit to remove commercial units and add two more residential units to that property.                                                                                                                                                                        

There are many ways you can listen to the show from anywhere in the world: • If you have a smart speaker, simply say, “Play WMEX on Audacy.com ” • Download the free www.Audacy.com app on your phone or tablet • Listen online at www.wmexboston.com • Or tune into 1510 AM if you have an AM radio THE HOUSE AND SENATE: In keeping with tradition, there were no formal sessions of the House and Senate last week which was April vacation week for Bay State students. This week, Beacon Hill Roll Call reports on proposed amendments fi led by representatives and senators to amend the state constitution. Any proposed constitutional amendment sponsored by legislators needs the votes of a majority of the 200-member Legislature in the 2021-2022 session and the same in the 2023-2024 session in order to appear on the November 2024 ballot for voters to decide. None of these proposals have yet been approved, but hearings have already been held on most of them. LIMIT JUDICIAL APPOINTMENTS TO SEVEN YEARS (H 81) – Limits judicial appointments to seven years but allows judges to be re-appointed by the governor for an unlimited number of years every seven years. The appointment would have to be approved by the Governor’s Council as required under current law. “The people of Massachusetts should have the power to remove government offi cials in any position who are not doing or are unable to do their jobs,” said the measure’s sponsor Rep. Tom Golden (D-Lowell.) “Establishing term and tenure limits would help to ensure that judges do not stay in offi ce beyond the point at which they are eff ective.” PROHIBIT EMINENT DOMAIN TAKINGS OF LAND (H 82) – Prohibits the state from taking land by eminent domain from property owners for private a widely recognized principle in the commonwealth, and one I believe should be fi rmly protected,” said GOP House Minority Leader Brad Jones (R-North Reading), the sponsor of the amendment. “[The bill] will ensure that eminent domain proceedings are limited to those instances where it is necessary for the good of the entire community, and not for the economic benefi t of a limited class of persons. This bill strikes a balance between two competing but legitimate realities—the need of the government to acquire land to serve the public good and the rights of private citizens to own property.” PROHIBIT CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENTS FROM RESTRICTING FREEDOM AND EQUALITY (S 20) – Prohibits the proposal of any future constitutional amendment that would restrict the rights to freedom and equality that are in the constitution, or the right of each individual to be protected by society’s laws in the enjoyment of life, liberty and property. “Under the current constitutional scheme there is nothing to stop a group from attempting to repeal or abridge certain constitutional rights through the initiative process,” said amendment sponsor Sen. Cindy Creem (DNewton). “Subjecting such important rights to a popular vote or a fl eeting change in political winds is unconscionable and should not be allowed.” EQUALITY UNDER THE LAW (S 21 and H 83) – Expands a part of the constitution that currently provides that equality under the law shall not be denied or abridged because of sex, race, color, creed or national origin. The measure adds “sexual orientation” and “gender identity” to the section. Sen. Patrick O’Connor (R-Weymouth) and Rep. Patrick Kearney (D-Scituate) each fi led the proposal at the request of one of their constituents Sabrina Holland. “This legislation … is deserving of a favorable report by the committee and has my full support,” said Sen. O’Connor who supports the bill. “This language is needed to officially prohibit discrimination on the basis of sexual preference or gender identity, to perpetuate Massachusetts’ values and to create a truly equitable and safe society for all.” Neither Rep. Kearney nor Sabrina Holland responded to repeated requests by Beacon Hill Roll Call to comment on the proposal. And Kearney did not respond to a specifi c question as to whether he supports the bill. Sometimes a legislator will fi le a bill as a courtesy to a constituent even if the legislator doesn’t support it. GIVE GOVERNOR THE POWER TO APPOINT LIEUTENANT GOVERNOR (H 84) – Grants the governor the power to appoint a lieutenant governor if the offi ce is vacant because of the death, resignation, removal from offi ce or incapacity of the lieutenant governor. The appointment would have to be confi rmed by a majority vote of the House and Senate. Current law leaves the seat vacant until the next election. The measure’s sponsor, Rep. Paul Mark (D-Peru) did not respond to repeated requests by Beacon Hill Roll Call to comment on the proposal. MAKE CONSTITUTION GENDER NEUTRAL (H 79) – Makes the state constitution general neutral by striking all references to “he” and replacing it with “the person.” The measure’s sponsor, Rep. Mindy Domb (D-Amherst) did not respond to repeated requests by Beacon Hill Roll Call to comment on the proposal. “AFFIRM” RATHER THAN “SOLEMNLY SWEAR” (H 80) – Amends a current section of the constitution that gives Quakers the option to change the oath a person must take upon taking offi ce from the current: “I do solemnly swear, that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the commonwealth of Massachusetts and will support the constitution thereof. So help me God.” Currently Quakers are allowed to change the word “swear” to “affi rm” and the words “So help me God” with “under the pains and penalties of perjury.” The amendment would give that same option to anyone, not just Quakers. The measure’s sponsor, Rep. Mindy Domb (D-Amherst) did not respond to repeated requests by Beacon Hill Roll Call to comment on the proposal. CHANGE “SELECTMAN” TO “SELECT BOARD” (SD 2564) – Changes all references to the constitution to a town’s “selectman” to “select board.” “This bill would recognize that both men and women can lead in local government by updating antiquated references to “selectmen” in the constitution,” said sponsor Sen. Will Brownsberger (D-Belmont). The modern terminology, adopted by many towns, is “select board.” 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 1923, the House met for a total of eleven minutes while the Senate met for a total of eight minutes. Mon. April 19 No House session. No Senate session Tues.

On May 5, 1832, Congress passed the Indian Vaccination Act of 1832, which aimed to prevent what disease? ANSWERS S ave the Harbor/Save the Bay is now seeking proposals from organizations and creatives to help “Reimagine the Beach” and fi nd safe and unique ways to bring free public events and programs to the region’s beaches and the Boston Harbor waterfront this summer as part of their Better Beaches Grant Program partnership with the state Department of Conservation & Recreation (DCR). Whether you are part of an organization, an artists’ collective or a creative individual, you can help Save the Harbor and DCR bring diversity and activity to the beaches in person or virtually in Boston’s waterfront neighborhoods and the region’s beachfront communities this year by submitting your proposal online today at https:// www.savetheharbor.org/better-beaches. Grant applicants can come from any community, as long as the free event or program activates one of the metropolitan region’s public beaches from Nahant to Nantasket. The Better Beaches Grants Program’s awards typically range from $250-$5,000, though in some cases Save the Harbor might consider larger grants. You can fi nd information about past events and programs in Save the Harbor’s 2020 Youth & Beach Program Report, which is available at http://bit.ly/2020_YouthandBeach. Funds to support the program come from a legislative appropriation to the DCR and the proceeds from this year’s Virtual Harpoon Shamrock Splash, which raised more than $50,000 in March. In 2020 the Better Beaches Grants Program awarded more than $200,000 among 22 organizations that ran creative and socially distanced summer programs, including virtual circus performances, community music contests, virtual wellness and fitness classes and virtual youth programs. In 2020, 25 percent of the grants went to providing safety equipment and support as organizations faced the unprecedented challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic as they worked to keep our beaches safe and open. “The Better Beaches Program events are as diverse as the communities that host them,” said Metropolitan Beaches Commission (MBC) Co-Chair Senator Brendan Crighton of Lynn, “But one thing they all have in common is that they bring communities together to enjoy our region’s public beaches. Thank you to Save the Harbor/Save the Bay and DCR for working together to strengthen our beachfront communities and waterfront neighborhoods.” MBC Co-Chair Representative Adrian Madaro of East Boston agreed, saying, “Free beach events and programs are critical to Bostonians and the region's residents who rely on these spectacular urban natural resources for recreation, especially during the pandemic.” “Save the Harbor has recommitted ourselves to equity and anti-racism in our programs and on our beaches and we are excited to see the creative ways organizations and individuals will be activating our beaches this summer.” said Save the Harbor Executive Director Chris Mancini. “This year more than $40,000 in Better Beaches funds will be intentionally awarded to organizations, programs, individuals, and creatives who empower, amplify and invest in community members of color.” “Our green and blue spaces are priceless locations and the betterment of these natural, cultural, and recreational resources continues to be a priority for DCR and the Baker-Polito Administration,” said DCR Commissioner James Montgomery. “I look forward to seeing Better Beaches programs that are accessible to many, work to achieve our shared goals and carry on DCR’s mission to protect, promote, and enhance the Massachusetts state parks system.” From 2008-2019, Save the Harbor’s community partners in Nahant, Lynn, Revere, Winthrop, East Boston, South Boston, Dorchester, Quincy and Hull have leveraged $1,097,988 in small grants received through the Better Beaches Grants Program with $3,617,741 in organizational support from Save the Harbor and cash and in-kind contributions from local government and small businesses. That resulted in a total investment of $4,715,749 in 870 free events and programs for the nearly two million regional residents who live within a short ride or drive to the beach. The success of this program would not be possible without the support of Save the Harbor’s program partners and event sponsors, including Harpoon Brewery, JetBlue, Mix 104.1, Blue Sky Collaborative, The Boston Foundation, the Richard Saltonstall Charitable Foundation, Beacon Capital Partners, P&G Gillette, National Grid, The Daily Catch and BEACHES | SEE Page 16 ~ Home of the Week ~ SAUGUS...FOREST GREEN Multi-Level TOWNHOUSE located in private setting, yet so close to major routes                                                                                                              View the interior of this home right on your smartphone. 1. 24 2.
