(Advocate photo by Tara Vocino) Upgrades on the way for tracking parking permits Will help track visitor parking pass violators By Adam Swift T he city’s parking department should soon be able to keep track of and ticket outof-towners violating Revere’s visitor parking pass program. During the City Council meeting last Monday night, Ward 1 Councillor Joanne McKenna introduced a motion pushing for improved software to monitor the visitor parking pass. City Parking Director Jim Rose said the city has been working with the software provider to take care of the issue and that it should be resolved in the next week. “It was brought to my attention by the parking enforcers that they don’t have the ability to monitor their visitor passes because they don’t have the app to scan the SKU,” said McKenna. “That means people with JOANNE McKENNA Ward 1 Councillor visitor’s passes can park as long as they want in front of someone’s residence, sometimes for months. There is a 10-day rule in the ordinance that you can only park for 10 days and then you have to move your car.” Rose said the issue with handheld devices the parking enforcement offi cers use to track visitor pass abuse is being addressed with the software company, Kelly & Ryan. “We addressed this with Kelly & Ryan a couple of months ago, and at that time they ordered new upgraded devices to resolve the problem and added updated features to the devices that we received less than a month ago,” said Rose. “Unfortunately, we continue to have the same issue with the tracking feature. I’ve been in touch with Kelly & Ryan’s IT development, and they assure me they will have the function of tracking registration numbers up and working correctly by the end of the week.” Even without the tracking devices working correctly, Rose said, the parking enforcement offi cers have been able to stay on top of parking violators. “If you see a car that is from out of state, and when you are doing this every night and you are out there every day, they are very easy to identify after a period of time,” said Rose. “My parking control offi cers have issued many tickets for visitor permits. Ideally, we’ll have it up and functioning within a week. I wanted to let you know that we have worked on it and we are working on it, and, hopefully, it will all be resolved in a week and we’ll be able to do it with the digital device.” Day Exercises on the American Legion Lawn at 11:00 a.m. on Monday, May 31, 2021. This year the ceremony will be open to the public; 2020 Memorial Day Exercises were strictly virtual. “For many, Memorial Day means the beginning of summer, the start of warm weather, and a long weekend. For the Gold Star families and friends of those we’ve lost in combat, it’s a day to remember their fallen heroes,” said Veterans Service Offi ce Director Marc Silvestri. “Men like Glenn Swell, Ryan King, and many others like them have left to serve our country and never came home. It’s our responsibility to continue to keep the tradition of honoring our fallen on Memorial Day. All gave some, some gave all.” The Master of Ceremonies for the event will be Silvestri, and it will include a Benediction from Pastor Tim of First Congregational Church, the laying of wreaths, musical selections, the playing of taps and a recitation of the Names of the Fallen.

Last Monday night, the City Council held a public hearing on a proposed take-out ice cream and smoothie window at a former offi ce space at 54 Yeamans St. But the ward councillor and some neighbors are concerned that the proposal will bring too much traffi c and worsen parking in the neighborhood.

Customers won’t be able to come into the facility itself.” The council received a letter from an attorney representing a Vane Street resident who opposed the proposal. The letter stated that the shop would create more parking problems on Yeamans and Vane Streets, where parking is already tight, and would likely disturb the peaceful neighborhood since it would be open in the evenings. Previously, the address housed ing tonight who were not in favor of this project,” said Ward 4 Councillor Patrick Keefe. Keefe noted that while the real estate offi ce was also a nonconforming use, it was used as an administrative offi ce for one or two people and had a low impact on the neighborhood. “The site is only a couple of hundred square feet; it’s a very small site with no parking,” said Keefe.

The proposal will be discussed further at a future City Council Zoning Subcommittee meeting. CLEANUPS CHEAP M RPD awarded grant to increase seat belt use ayor Brian Arrigo and Police Chief David Callahan recently announced that the Revere Police Department was awarded a grant from the Executive Offi ce of Public Safety and Security's Offi ce of Grants and Research (OGR) to increase the number of patrols and to remind drivers and passengers about the lifesaving benefi ts of wearing a seat belt. Revere police will join other departments across the state and the State Police in the national Click It or Ticket enforcement campaign. "Seat belts are the single most important safety item in our vehicles," said Callahan. "We see fi rsthand the devastating consequences of drivers and their passengers not buckling up. These funds will increase our traffi c enforcement presence to help end these preventable tragedies." "Seat belts are the best way to protect yourself from dangerous drivers," said Kevin Stanton, Executive Director of the OGR. "You might be an excellent driver, but not everyone else is. Seat belts are your best defense against impaired, aggressive, and distracted drivers." "Seat belts save lives. It's as simple as that," said Jeff rey Larason, Division Director of the OGR's Highway Safety Division. "Massachusetts has one of the lowest seat belt use rates in the nation. We need to change that." Recent data has shown the following: • Massachusetts' seat belt use rate is consistently lower than the national average, ranking 45th in the 2019 seat belt observational study. • At 81.6 percent use, more than 1.2 million Massachusetts residents still are not regularly buckling up. As of 2019, the national seat belt use rate is 90.7 percent. • In Massachusetts, a larger percentage of pickup trucks (71 percent) and SUVs (65 percent) fatalities are unrestrained compared to passenger cars (60 percent). • According to the National Highway Traffi c Safety Administration, seat belts saved an estimated 61 lives in Massachusetts in 2018. • Sixty-eight percent of nighttime fatalities are unrestrained in Massachusetts compared to 55 percent of unrestrained daytime fatalities.

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, MAY 28, 2021 Page 3 City Council moves forward with affordable housing initiative By Adam Swift T he establishment of an affordable housing trust fund in Revere is quickly gaining momentum. Last Monday night, the City Council unanimously approved the Massachusetts General Law that will allow for the establishment of a trust fund specifi cally set aside to establish and promote aff ordable home ownership and rental opportunities. Next on the docket is a public hearing at a future City Council meeting on the specifi c establishment for an aff ordable housing trust fund in the city. The aff ordable trust fund act being proposed by Mayor Brian Arrigo calls for a nine-member volunteer Board of Trustees overseeing the trust fund, with a minimum of fi ve of the members being Revere residents. To seed the funding of the trust fund, the draft proposal is calling for up to 10 percent of the city’s certifi ed free cash amount be transferred to the fund. “I feel a tremendous amount of pride in presenting this to you tonight in establishing an affordable housing trust fund for our city,” Arrigo told the council. “This fund will be a signifi cant tool for us to promote the production of sorely needed aff ord[it] is with a great sense of pride that I bring this to the council.” The aff ordable housing trust fund will be the fi rst big step in tackling housing issues in Revere, Arrigo said. “I look forward to working with the council over the next few years to make sure the strategies we put in place continue to make Revere an affordable place to live, and I look forward to additional conversation around this,” said Arrigo. Councillor-at-Large George BRIAN ARRIGO Mayor able housing in our city.” Arrigo thanked the council and all the residents of the city who have taken part in aff ordable housing trust workshops and sessions in the recent past to help craft the new ordinance. The mayor pointed to the recent interest generated by the aff ordable units at 571 Revere St. as an indication of the desire and need for aff ordable units in the city. “Nearly 400 of our own residents were looking for housing at 571 Revere St.,” said Arrigo. “Knowing the demand is really there and thinking about the strategies that we can deploy, All in the Family Rotondo said the need for an aff ordable housing trust fund and increased aff ordable housing opportunities for residents is something he has been advocating for years. “For Mayor Arrigo to do this is a blessing for our community,” said Rotondo. “We need a trust fund for aff ordable housing for the people of Revere, and I look forward to working with the mayor on this particular eff ort.” In other communities, aff ordable trust funds have been used to help purchase existing buildings that have been renovated into aff ordable units by developers, or have been used to help maintain housing units that are currently aff ordable but may be facing the end of their aff ordable deed restrictions. “Very broadly, an aff ordable housing trust can be focusing on your local aff ordable housing needs and can work to support local control of housing initiatives,” said Shelly Goehring, a senior program manager from the Massachusetts Housing Partnership, at a public forum earlier this month. “The trust is set up to engage in the real estate market; it could purchase property and it could also sell property. Because the trust doesn’t have to go back to the legislative body, it can make timely decisions, especially in our real estate market.” Lawrence A.

City and MAPC look at ways to help Broadway businesses By Adam Swift W ith the help of federal CARES Act COVID-19 relief funds, the Metropolitan Area Planning Council (MAPC), and city officials, businesses in the Broadway Business District could be getting some help that could help reshape the district. Last Tuesday night, representatives from the MAPC and the City of Revere held a public forum on the planning process for how those funds could be used. The meeting included updates on demographic information gathered by MAPC and results of a survey of business owners touching on their struggles over the past year during the pandemic. “The City of Revere applied for a grant from the Department of Housing and Community Development along with the Metropolitan Area Planning Council and was successful in getting that grant,” said city Business Liaison John Festa. “The purpose of this grant is to help all businesses in this district with technical assistance in some capacity and with longterm sustainability.” Mayor Brian Arrigo said the planning process, which will result in a report with recommendations for the Broadway Business District being completed by August, is the latest example of Revere working with MAPC for the betterment of the city. “As we begin to recover and as we rebound from the devastating impact that Covid has had, we’re in a great position to take advantage of a number of things,” said Arrigo. “One is the funding that is available to us through the federal relief act and the ability for us to, hopefully, maximize the recovery efforts and use these other pots of money available to the city and to the state to really make sure that these impacts that we can make are sustainable and not just for six months or one year.” MAPC’s Chief of Economic Development, Betsy Cowan Neptune, said the goal is to have a fi nal plan that will be used for the funding for the Broadway Business District. “Our hope is that at the end of this planning process we will have a very clear sense of the concrete investments that can be made to support the businesses and to make it a better place to work and shop and recreate for all Revere residents,” said Neptune. Demographic analysis by MAPC showed there are a total of 172 storefronts in the business district, only four of which are vacant. A little under a quarter of the businesses are classifi ed as personal services, such as barber shops or salons, while 17 percent are retail spaces, such as convenience or grocery stores, and 15 percent are food services. There were 35 businesses that responded to the survey sent out by the MAPC. Of those, nearly three quarters have fi ve or fewer employees, and nearly all said they faced negative impacts from the COVID-19 pandemic. Those negative impacts included the temporary closing of businesses or a reduction in hours, money spent on safety protocols, and a decrease in business. A walk-through of the seven blocks of the business district highlighted some of the strengths and challenges facing businesses, according to MPAC Economic Development Planner Will Dorfman. The strengths included the high quality of the streets and sidewalks, new lighting in some areas and what looked to be the availability of parking. The challenges included a lack of ADA compliance at crosswalks, traffi c noise and the lack of a protected environment, dead zones for pedestrians, a lack of signage and a lack of a clear identity for the district. “We certainly talked about district identity being a theme,” said Neptune. “We walked through seven diff erent blocks, and when you start walking through the corridor, you don’t really get a sense that yes, I am in the Broadway Business District.” The next steps for the Broadway Business District plan include a second forum this summer, draft recommendations to be prepared in July and a fi - nal plan to be delivered to the City of Revere and the Department of Housing and Community Development in August.

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, MAY 28, 2021 Page 5 Five-alarm Beachmont fire causes $2M in damage Sixteen residents left homeless By Christopher Roberson A discarded cigarette was determined to be the cause of a raging, fi ve-alarm inferno that destroyed two Beachmont homes and damaged four others on the afternoon of May 20. Revere Fire Chief Christopher Bright said that when fi refi ghters arrived on the scene just after 2 p.m., the fi re had already destroyed the back of the tripledecker residence at 141-143 Endicott Ave. Bright also said that the two closest fi re hydrants were not useable. Therefore, fi refi ghters had to use hydrants on neighboring streets. This allowed time for the fi re to grow into a roaring, fi ve-alarm monster. In addition to the Revere Fire Department, the blaze triggered responses from Cambridge, Lynn, Somerville, Stoneham, Medford and Boston. “I am grateful to the many neighboring fi re departments that provided mutual aid,” said Bright. “This fi re is a terrible tragedy, but hard work kept the fi re from destroying more homes in this densely packed neighborhood.” Bright said daylight was a crucial factor in fi ghting a fi re of this magnitude. “If this fi re had happened in the middle of the night, the outcome might have been very diff erent,” he said. Firefi ghters are shown at a triple-decker home on Endicott Avenue at a fi ve-alarm blaze involving several houses last Thursday afternoon. Thankfully, no injuries were reported.

That horror-thriller was certainly one in the Spielbergian tradition: a slick creature feature with an unabashedly sentimental (and surprisingly eff ective) family story at its center. It also featured a genuinely novel concept: a world overrun by monsters with ultra-sensitive hearing, forcing those still living to remain quiet for the majority of the fi lm, lest they become lunch next.

Therefore, few movies seem more appropriate to lead this crucial Memorial Day Weekend charge at the theaters than “A Quiet Place Part II,” an early summer blockbuster that delivers plenty of killer suspense sequences and heartfelt character beats on par with the fi rst fi lm, even if it ultimately feels like more of the same. Those who have missed going to the movies this past year should find this a fi tting return, as Krasinski clearly designed his sequel to be seen on the big screen: Every ominous creak and fl itter in the sound design, every creature darting just out of frame in the background – it all lands with maximum impact in a theater. “Part II” opens with a fl ashback that gives audiences a glimpse                                                       Emily Blunt returns in “A Quiet Place Part II” with Millicent Simmonds and Noah Jupe in the latest sequel to John Krasinski’s 2018 horror fi lm, “The Quiet Place.” of life moments before the alien invasion. Most importantly, however, it’s a showcase of what makes Krasinski such a promising director. As Lee (Krasinski), his wife Evelyn (Emily Blunt) and hearing-impaired daughter Regan (Millicent Simmonds, who steals the whole show here) watches his son, Marcus (Noah Jupe) during his Little League game, cinematographer Polly Morgan frames this mundane weekend afternoon with palpable menace. These images of pure Americana – barbecues, baseball, nuclear families – are undermined by eerie silences and the uncomfortable open spaces Morgan leaves in every frame. An over-the-shoulder shot of a kid at home plate leaves the wide-open sky in the foreground, suggesting an incoming alien invasion that the audience knows could be coming at any instant. When chaos does indeed erupt, the camera remains on the actors’ faces, letting the monsters scutter in and out of focus. It’s an ingenious technique that prioritizes the human drama while also elevating the horror of the alien threat. The rest of the fi lm takes place immediately after the events of the fi rst “Quiet Place,” following the central family as they leave the now-destroyed farm they called their home and venture out into the world seeking a new one. Story-wise, there really isn’t anything here one couldn’t find in, say, your average episode of “The Walking Dead.” Post-apocalyptic tropes abound here, and yet “Part II” does just enough to rise above its more generic genre contemporaries. First and foremost is positioning Millicent Simmonds’ character Regan as the real lead, subverting expectations with the introduction of a grizzled survivor, played by Cillian Murphy, named Emmett. Here, Regan emerges as the determined leader of the pair, her steely resolve making up for Emmett’s frightened skepticism. In the end, “A Quiet Place Part II” doesn’t necessarily tell you anything that the fi rst one didn’t three years ago. Family is still a source of courage in the most dire of situations, and watching this follow-up is simply watching these characters learn that lesson once again. Nonetheless, “Part II” would stand out as a worthwhile trip to the theater in any summer movie season. In 2021, of course, that’s now twice as true. Spring!

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, MAY 28, 2021 Page 7 Antonia’s at the Beach ordered to roll back hours following COVID-19 violations By Adam Swift F ollowing an hour-long hearing last week, the Licensing Commission handed Antonia’s at the Beach a 30-day rollback of its hours for repeated violations of COVID-19 regulations. Commissioners weighed the impact of imposing a penalty on the 492 Revere Beach Boulevard restaurant and function room versus the possibility of endangering the jobs of the restaurant’s 25 employees. Antonia’s was also before the Licensing Commission last year for a violation of COVID-19 regulations when the facility held a birthday party for a family member of one of the restaurant employees. At issue with the latest hearing was a report from Director of Inspectional Services Michael Wells stating that there were two DJ and dance nights held at the restaurant in April and May violating COVID-19 restrictions. Those restrictions are set to end on May 29. Also at issue was a possible violation with the manager of record for Antonia’s not being on site at the restaurant. “The management issue is one thing, normally in and of itself, that would be something we could work with,” said Licensing Commission Chair Robert Selevitch. “But there is a situation there where it doesn’t seem like anyone is managing the place, and whoever is managing the place has no regard for the city, the inspectors, the regulations and the rules. So I think we have a signifi cant problem here that goes beyond who the manager on a piece of paper is.” Wells stated that there were several instances of a DJ on the premises with dancing over the past month. “When a city inspector goes into a building and says, “‘Hey, I see you are advertising a dance party. You can’t have this,’ and an hour later they have a dance party, that’s a little bit more than a mistake was made,” said Selevitch. J. Fernando Loaiza, the acting assistant manager at the restaurant, said he has been running the restaurant while the manager of record has largely been taking care of his sick mother over the past year. Loaiza said the DJ initially said he was going to host private parties in the function rooms, and that after the two incidents referred to at the licensing hearing, he would no longer be working with the DJ. “I told the DJ that this was not a nightclub; we need something to bring in dining, not dancing,” he said. “It was different than what he promised to me – that he would bring in his own parties – and we stopped it right away.” Licensing Commissioner Linda Guinasso pointed to the violation from the previous summer when the restaurant violated COVID-19 regulations and got off without a penalty. “I feel like you disrespected the inspectional services workers, the taxpayers and everyone else in this city,” said Guinasso. “You’ve been warned time and time again, and every time, you come up with another story. I just don’t think you have any respect for your license – that’s my opinion.” Licensing Commissioner Daniel Occena said he met with Loaiza and found him to be sincere and hardworking, but said he is still troubled by the reported violations at the restaurant. “It’s not a question of something bad happening, it’s a question of you following the rules,” said Occena. “That seems to be the issue. It’s not an issue of your character. You seem to be a very nice guy. Enough is enough; the rules are in place for everyone.” Councillor-at-Large George Rotondo said he respects the opinions and reports of Wells and the commissioners, but asked if there could be some kind of provisional penalty imposed rather than a loss of license. “I don’t want to put 25 people out of work,” said Rotondo. Wells noted that in addition to the hearings before the Licensing Commission, there have been several other violations at the restaurant. “They say they have learned their lesson, but I wonder if they are really learning their lesson,” he said. “They have taken a slap on the hand and they move forward and they do it again.” Wells said letting Antonia’s off the hook again would send a bad message to those 50 or more restaurants in the city that have strictly followed COVID-19 regulations over the past year and a half. Guinasso said she would personally like to see a seven-day license suspension for the restaurant, but moved forward with a motion to roll back the closing time of Antonia’s from 2 a.m. to 11 p.m. for approximately 30 days until the next commission meeting in June. Selevitch and Occena agreed to the motion. At the next meeting, the commission can consider if it wants to reinstate the 2 a.m. closing time for Antonia’s.

According to federal authorities, Gama and Goncalves, both 23, are Brazilian nationals who previously lived in Revere. Federal agents began investigating PCM in September 2018 following a string of violent crimes in numerous communities, including Boston, Malden, Everett and Somerville. During the investigation, agents found that Gama was involved in an armed robbery outside of a Brazilian money transfer business in Everett and conspired to rob a drug runner. Agents also found that Gama had distributed more than 28 grams of crack cocaine and nine fi rearms. In addition, Goncalves participated in robbing a market in Boston as well as committing another robbery outside a cell phone store in Framingham and stealing a car in Marlborough. In December 2020, Gama and Goncalves pleaded guilty to RICO conspiracy. Gama also pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit robbery, conspiracy to distribute cocaine, illegally selling fi rearms and being an alien in possession of a fi rearm. Gama was subsequently sentenced to four-and-a-half years in prison while Goncalves was sentenced to seven years. Upon being released, they will both face deportation proceedings.

Page 16 THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, MAY 28, 2021 JEAN CHARLES ACADEMY, AN ACCESSIBLE, DUAL LANGUAGE PRIVATE SCHOOL, TO OPEN IN LYNN The school is designed to meet the needs of students of color in the communities of Lynn, Chelsea, Revere, Everett, and East Boston LYNN, MA - Jean Charles Academy (JCA), an accessible, private school based in Lynn, will open for the 2021-2022 school year following a recent approval from the Lynn School Committee. Founded by Nakia Navarro, JCA is designed to meet the needs of students of color by building a racially equitable curriculum and school culture within an inclusive dual language educational program. The school will begin enrolling up to 40 students in grades Pre K-7, and will ultimately grow to serve 125 students in Grades Pre K-12. The school will focus recruitment in the underserved communities of Lynn, Chelsea, Revere, Everett, and East Boston. The mission of Jean Charles Academy is to promote biliteracy, bilingualism, and biculturalism for students. The school will prioritize students of color by providing an interdisciplinary and dual language education that will prepare students for the 21st century through an emphasis on holistic learning and critical thinking skills. Jean Charles Academy aims to reimagine public education by: 1. Building schools that are designed to meet the needs of students of color; 2. Diversifying the teaching profession by hiring and retaining teachers with diverse backgrounds, and ensuring that faculty are representative of the diversity of enrolled students; and 3. Equipping all teachers with strategies for building racially equitable classrooms and ensuring a curriculum that is inclusive and refl ective of the student populations Tuition for JCA is based on a shared economy structure, and based on fundraising; the school hopes to provide families with a $25 per week tuition schedule. However, accepted families will not be turned away if they are unable to cover the cost of the program. The school is founded by Navarro, who is also the CEO and Founder of Building Audacity, a local youth support organization, along with a founding board of an additional 13 members. All founding board members are current or former educators, with a combined average of 20 years of teaching experience. In addition, 12 of the founding board members are people of color, half are bilingual, and a number have experience either in assisting the creation of a charter school or in operating a dual language program. Jean Charles Academy is named after Navarro’s parents, who were both born and raised in South Carolina during the Jim Crow era. Both attended segregated schools and believed that education was the way out of poverty. “We believe it is important that students see themselves in the adults who are teaching them day-to-day and who are leaders of the school - whose diversity is representative of the diversity of enrolled students, including language diversity,” said Nakia Navarro, Founder of Jean Charles Academy. “The JCA model will teach students key elements of social emotional learning, have college preparatory practices embedded throughout, and provide hands-on opportunities for students via experiential, projectbased learning that makes what they are learning, particularly complex math and science concepts, relevant to their lives.” The Jean Charles Academy Dual Language bilingual model is based on research that has shown high rates of academic success in both English and the native language for English Language Learners. The goal is that Jean Charles Academy students will be able to listen, speak, read, and write in two languages (English and Spanish), while also developing an appreciation for different cultures. Jean Charles is committed to hiring teachers who will reflect the diversity of the students and families. In addition to faculty demographics, all curriculum standards and decisions will be created with inclusivity and community at the forefront. “I’m excited the City of Lynn is getting a new education option that prioritizes Black youth and off ers a dual language program,” said Nicole McClain, President of the North Shore Juneteenth Association Inc. The school recently acquired space at 498 Essex Street in Lynn. Application forms in English and Spanish, as well as more information about the school’s mission, can be found on the school’s website: www.jeancharlesacademy.org. ~ GUEST COMMENTARY ~ Sometimes People Just Wanna Complain, Not Fix Anything By Sal Giarratani L ong ago, maybe 50 years ago, when I was much younger, a nice old guy, a neighbor who lived next door to where I lived with my family, told me once that there were two kinds of people, “Those who made things happen and those who watched things happen.” Viewing life today and especially with the invention of iPhones and social media, everyone has become seemingly a watcher of life or in some sense videographers. Folks want to catch the news around them but, God forbid, they actually get involved in life around them. We see it all the time, there’s some act of violence. Everybody becomes the audience. Others start fi lming the action. No one would even think of calling the cops or try to break it up. That would entail a person to actually participate in their own lives. I can remember many years back when I was still a police offi cer; I was involved in a struggle on the ground. Folks standing around watching like it was some kind of TV show did nothing but watch or video it on their phone and one guy said to me, “Should I call 9-1-1?” and I said, “That would be so nice of you.” I bring all this up in reaction to a news story right here in this newspaper about the Human Rights Commission attempting to address an anonymous complaint leaving a message on their 3-1-1 line about the volunteer-run Revere History Museum. With that call did come about a conversation between the Commission and the volunteers who run the museum. Too bad the anonymous phone caller who thought the museum in his or her eyes showed “instiNEW 10-YEAR RULE FOR INHERITED IRA’S T he SECURE Act (Setting Every Community Up for Retirement Enhancement Act) was signed into law on December 20, 2019. A signifi - cant provision of the SECURE Act was the repeal of the ability of a designated benefi ciary of an IRA account to withdraw the funds over his or her life expectancy. Designated benefi ciaries inheriting IRA accounts after 2019 must now withdraw monies from the IRA account within 10 years. The IRS should be issuing proposed Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) regulations soon as a result of the changes made by the SECURE Act. It is no longer necessary to determine the age of the IRA owner at the time of death for distribution purposes as long as the IRA owner dies after 2019 and the benefi ciary is a designated benefi ciary under the IRA account (a Trust or an individual). For designated beneficiaries subject to the 10-year rule, withdrawals from the IRA account are optional until December 31st of the 10th year following the year of death of the IRA account owner. The new 10-year rule also applies to a successor benefi ciary of a designated benefi ciary of the original IRA account owner, who inherited an IRA account prior to 2020, but who dies after 2019. A designated benefi ciary will establish a benefi ciary IRA account and will then select a benefi ciary of his or her inherited IRA account. That subsequent benefi ciary would be deemed to be a successor benefi ciary. If the designated benefi - ciary, however, had died prior to 2020, then the successor beneficiary would have the right to withdraw the remaining balance of the IRA account over the life expectancy of the designated benefi ciary, and not be subject to the 10year rule. Under the SECURE Act, an Eligible designated benefi ciary is eligible to withdraw the remaining balance of the inherited IRA account over his or her life expectancy. The following qualify as an Eligible designated benefi ciary: A. The surviving spouse of the IRA account owner B. A child of the IRA account owner who has not yet reached the age of majority. Once the child has reached the age of majority, the child then has 10 years to withdraw the balance in the inherited IRA account C. Disabled benefi ciary D. Chronically ill benefi ciary E. An individual not falling into A-D who is not more than 10 years younger than the IRA account owner. These are complicated new rules relating to benefi ciaries of IRA account owners. However, since IRA accounts are so common, it is important to understand the new rules. Joseph D. Cataldo is an Estate Planning/Elder Law Attorney, Certifi ed Public Accountant, Certifi ed Financial Planner, AICPA Personal Financial Specialist and holds a Master’s Degree in Taxation. tutional racism” and “white supremacy” in the museum’s exhibits didn’t just mention those concerns while at the museum. Would it not have been better for this person to just talk with museum folk while there? Why the need for so much anonymity in our society? Point out areas that are off ensive. Volunteer to help make the museum more respectful in their eyes to Revere, past, present and future? I am a friend of Bob Upton who is one of those volunteers always pushing the Revere History Museum and constantly trying to make this museum the best it can be. The purpose of this museum is to bring Revere folk together from the multitudes of cultures that have continually built up the fabric of this community. Revere has a rich history, yesterday, today and into the future and that is what this museum is all about. If anyone has ideas on how to improve the exhibits just contact the Museum and let them know your thoughts. I am sure they do not turn away volunteers either. No need to turn criticism into a human rights violation, is there?

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, MAY 28, 2021 DONATES | FROM Page 15 Beachmont Veterans Mem School for the project "Green Screens on the Go!" • Mr. K. at Revere High School Should You Be Screened for Lung Cancer? Dear Savvy Senior, What can you tell me about lung cancer screenings? I was a big smoker but quit years ago, so I’m wondering if I should be checked out. Former Smoker Dear Still, Lung cancer screening is used to detect the presence of lung cancer in otherwise healthy people with a high risk of lung cancer. Should you be screened? It depends on your age and your smoking history. Here’s what you should know. Screening Recommendations The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force – an independent panel of medical experts that advises the government on health policies – recently expanded their recommendations for lung cancer screenings. They are now recommending annual screenings for high-risk adults between the ages of 50 and 80 who have at least a 20-pack year history who currently smoke or who have quit within the past 15 years. This is a change from the 2013 recommendation that referred to patients ages 55 to 80 with 30-year pack histories. A 20-pack year history is the equivalent of smoking one pack a day for 20 years or two packs a day for 10 years. In 2020, lung cancer killed more than 135,000 Americans making it the deadliest of all possible cancers. In fact, more people die of lung cancer than of colon, breast and prostate cancers combined. Lung cancer also occurs predominantly in older adults. About two out of every three people diagnosed with lung cancer are 65 or older. You’ll also be happy to know that most health insurance plans cover lung cancer screenings to high-risk patients, as does Medicare up to age 77. Screening Pros and Cons Doctors use a low-dose computed tomography scan (also called a low-dose CT scan, or LDCT) of the lungs to look for lung cancer. If lung cancer is detected at an early stage, it’s more likely to be cured with treatment. But a LDCT isn’t recommended for every high-risk patient. LDCT scans have a high rate of false positives, which means that many will undergo additional (and unnecessary) screening or medical procedures, such as another scan three, six, or even 12 months later to check for changes in the shape or size of the suspicious area (an indication of tumor growth). For some patients, the anxiety or worry that goes along with waiting can be a real issue. Or you may need a biopsy (removal of a small amount of lung tissue), which has risks, especially for those with underlying health conditions, such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease or emphysema. For example, in people with emphysema, there’s a chance of a lung collapsing during the procedure. If you meet the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force criteria for high-risk lung cancer, the University of Michigan off ers a free online tool (see ShouldIScreen.com) to help you decide if you should get an LDCT. It’s also important to discuss the benefi ts and risks with your primary care doctor before making a decision. Tips for Testing If you and your doctor determine that you should be screened, look for an imaging facility whose staff follows American College of Radiology requirements when performing low-dose CT scans. You can fi nd accredited facilities at ACRaccreditation.org. This can help to ensure an accurate read of your scans by a highly trained, board-certifi ed or board-eligible radiologist. You may need a referral from your primary care provider. Most insurance companies, including Medicare require this before they’ll cover the cost of screening.

Charlie Baker 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. A HouseSenate conference committee hammered out this compromise version after the House and Senate approved diff erent versions of the measure. The bill also provides $200 million to increase geographic equity and accessibility of longterm care services for Bay State veterans with a focus on areas that are not primarily served by the soldiers’ homes in Chelsea or Holyoke. The Baker administration and House and Senate leaders have urged speedy passage of the proposal 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. “Rebuilding the soldiers’ home in Holyoke and increasing access to services for our veterans is necessary and long overdue, especially after tragically losing many residents of the soldiers’ home to a COVID-19 outbreak last year,” said Sen. Cindy Friedman (D-Arlington) who served as the lead Senate negotiator of the conference committee. “This funding will ensure that the commonwealth’s veterans are met with the services that they deserve and that address their unique and changing needs.” “Our veterans throughout the commonwealth deserve the very best in care and treatment as they age,” said Sen. Paul Feeney (D-Foxborough), another member of the conference    Attorneys at Law                   14 Norwood St., Everett, MA 02149 Phone: (617) 387-4900 Fax: (617) 381-1755  John Mackey, Esq. * Katherine M.

The bill that we enacted today will ensure that their needs are met for generations to come in a safe, comfortable and welcoming soldiers’ home. Additionally, it is critical that this vital taxpayer-funded facility be built effi ciently by a local, well-trained, safe and diverse workforce that provides a career pipeline for skilled craftspeople in Western Massachusetts. The bipartisan and collaborative bond authorization bill we sent to the governor is refl ective of our values and consistent with our focus on providing equitable and top-notch care to every veteran in the commonwealth.” “As the senator for the city of Holyoke and the Soldiers’ Home, I know what this new home means to so many in our community,” said Sen. John Velis (D-Westfield), Senate chair of the Committee on Veterans and Federal Affairs. “This has truly been a long and emotional process that started well before this legislation was first fi led. From the very start, families and veterans gave me a very clear message: ‘Get this done.’ We could not let them down and I am proud to say that we have not let them down … The funding authorized in this bill will ensure that the future residents of the Holyoke Soldiers’ Home and veterans across our commonwealth receive the care with honor and dignity that they have earned in service to our nation. Today’s vote brings us one step closer towards fulfi lling that mission.” (A “Yes” vote is for the bill.) Rep. Jessica Giannino Yes Sen. Joseph Boncore Yes COVID-19 EMERGENCY SICK LEAVE AND UNEMPLOYMENT INSURANCE CHANGES (H 3771) House 157-0, Senate 40-0, approved and sent to Gov. Baker a bill that would provide qualifi ed workers with up to fi ve days of paid leave for COVID-related emergencies including workers who are sick with the virus, under a quarantine order, recovering from receiving a vaccine or caring for a family member ill with the virus. The measure is also designed to relieve employers this spring from expensive unexpected unemployment system costs. Many businesses were shocked when they saw their fi rst-quarter unemployment contribution bills and found the solvency assessment rate had jumped from 0.58 percent in 2020 to 9.23 percent in 2021, raising costs in many cases by hundreds or thousands of dollars. Under the proposal, the state would shift all COVID-related unemployment claims from the solvency fund into a new COVID claims fund and the solvency fund would revert to its original function. Employers, who fund the state’s jobless aid system, will still be on the hook in the long term, and a COVID-related assessment on businesses will kick into eff ect for 2021 and 2022. “In order for us to fully recover from the pandemic, all Massachusetts workers need access to emergency paid sick time if they are sick with COVID-19, quarantined or need to care for a sick family member,” said Deb Fastino, Executive Director of the Coalition for Social Justice and a member of the Raise Up Massachusetts Steering Committee. “Many essential frontline workers need paid sick time so they can recover from the side eff ects of the COVID-19 vaccine.” “Massachusetts workers and businesses share the same goal of restoring jobs lost during the COVID pandemic and getting back to work,” said Steve Tolman, president of the Massachusetts AFL-CIO. “By spreading this year’s solvency assessment over the next two decades using already authorized borrowing, the House took the necessary step at this time to enable that continued economic recovery. Moving forward, it is critical that we take a hard look at the way we fund our Unemployment Insurance system to ensure that costs are fairly spread out across businesses; that we build substantial reserves during good economic times in order to weather the bad without relying on costly borrowing; and that workers can continue to count on UI benefi ts as an economic lifeline to provide for their families and boost the Massachusetts economy.” “The unemployment benefi ts crisis was directly caused by Gov. Baker’s shutdown of the state’s economy and the Legislature’s failure to act,” said Chip Ford, executive director of Citizens for Limited Taxation. “The federal government provided relief with its American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA), but the House chose not to use those funds to mitigate the burden the state imposed on employers. It is unconscionable for the state to further abuse devastated businesses when federal funds have been made available to alleviate that pain.” “This proposal is a good step to help provide employers immediate unemployment insurance tax relief, but it is not a long-term solution,” said National Federation of Independent Business’s (NFIB) Massachusetts State Director Christopher Carlozzi. “The state forced businesses to close their doors and rollback operations resulting in widespread layoff s. Because of this, employers alone should not be left to shoulder the entire UI tax burden and policymakers must use some of the billions of dollars in federal aid to help replenish the UI trust fund like so many other states have done.” “This legislation is an important stopgap step to prevent up to 1,600 percent immediate tax increases for Massachusetts employers,” said Jon Hurst, president of the Retailers Association of Massachusetts. “It will amortize the multi-billion-dollar COVID-related claims over 20 years, spreading out, but not eliminating the pain. Still there needs to be a shared responsibility with the government to cover some of the UI Trust Fund debt. The orders, restrictions, messaging, emergency benefi ts and fraudulent claims were related to government actions, not that of employers. So there still needs to be a determination on how much of the federal relief dollars under either the CARES Act or ARPA will be the government’s responsibility for the debt of approximately $4 billion. Massachusetts will be receiving $4.5 billion under the ARPA. Most other states have used federal COVID relief dollars to reduce the overall UI tax hit for their employers, and Massachusetts must support their small businesses and employers in a similar way.” (A “Yes” vote is for the bill.) Rep. Jessica Giannino Yes Sen. Joseph Boncore Yes EXCLUDE MUNICIPAL WORKERS (H 3771) House 0-158 (Senate on a voice vote without a roll call) rejected Gov. Baker’s amendment that would exclude municipal employees from the emergency COVID-19 paid leave program. The Baker administration has defended the exclusion of municipal workers arguing that they already have strong leave protections in place and that many municipalities can access federal funds to implement their own leave programs that could align with state and federal leave guarantees. Rep. Josh Cutler, (D-Pembroke), House chair of the Committee on Labor and Workforce Development disagreed with Baker. “As the speaker has made clear, the House stands fi rm in supporting COVID emergency paid leave for all Massachusetts workers,” said Cutler. “That includes our municipal employees, the teachers, police offi cers, fi refi ghters, health agents, janitors, veterans’ agents and many others who have been essential to our state’s COVID-19 response. Further, our actions today to address unemployment solvency account rates will help stem rising costs for employers and small businesses.” House GOP Minority Leader Brad Jones (R-North Reading) BEACON | SEE Page 19

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 “Memorial Day is about giving back and recognizing those who have made a special sacrifi ce,” said Silvestri. Residents unable to attend the ceremony in person are welcome to tune in on RevereTV (Comcast channel 8/9 and 1072 HD, RCN channel 3/13 & 613/614 HD), Facebook or YouTube. an annual session.
