A household word in Revere for 30 years! Vol.30, No.22 -FREEwww.advocatenews.net Free Every Friday 781-286-8500 Friday, June 4, 2021 City honors fallen heroes on Memorial Day By Adam Swift M emorial Day is always a special and solemn occasion in Revere, a small seaside community that has lost so many of its sons and daughters in the cause of freedom. On the American Legion lawn on Monday, the city’s annual Memorial Day service took on added signifi cance, both as a return to honoring the fallen in public after a year of COVID-19 restrictions, and as the last Memorial Day when the United States will have boots on the ground after 20 years in Afghanistan. “Despite the weather, today is a beautiful day,” said Veterans Services Director Marc Silvestri. “Today we get to mourn our fallen. As we near the 20th anniversary of 9/11, Operation Enduring Freedom is coming to an end. The longest war in history is now soon over.” Silvestri said that the best part of his job is coming to speak in front of the Memorial Day crowd and honor those Revere residents who have lost their lives in the service of the country. “The amount of valor that has come from this little city on the beach is truly staggering,” said Silvestri, adding that it is important to share the history of those sacrifi ces with younger generations. “It is important to tell the entire history of everyone who fi ghts under our fl ag.” This year’s guest speaker was retired U.S. Army Major Deborah Bowker, who now leads the Revere High School JROTC program. Silvestri praised both her groundbreaking role as a female leader in the military, and her role in creating new leaders in MEMORIAL | SEE Pages 12-13 Firefighters injured battling Kingman Ave. blaze Mayor Brian Arrigo and Revere Veterans Service Offi ce Director Marc Silvestri dedicated a war memorial during this year’s Memorial Day services on May 31. (Advocate photo by Tara Vocino) ZBA approves variances for Point of Pines Fire Station By Adam Swift T he long-awaited Point of Pines fi re station is another step closer to construction, thanks to last week’s approval of several variances by the Zoning Board of Appeals (ZBA). The fate of the station, which the City Council approved a $9.2 million bond for in 2019, was likely never in question before the ZBA, but the variances were necessary to pave the way for the demolition and construction of the new station. Because of the limited lot size of the old station at 140 Lynnway and the proposed size of the new building, variances were necessary for issues regarding setbacks and the total amount of open space on the property. Project architect Dana Weeder said that part of the reason for the increased size of the new fi re station is that it will also include a community room for use by residents in the Point of Pines area. “About a third of the footprint of the fi rst fl oor is dedicated to a foyer, a public lobby area and a community room with an egress foyer on the opposite side,” said Weeder. In addition, there will be three unisex bathrooms off the foyer for use by APPROVAL | SEE Page 19 Two fi refi ghters were reportedly injured battling a three-alarm fi re at 24 Kingman Ave. on Wednesday.

Northeast’s 12 sending communities will be responsible for the remainder of the project costs. Tax impact information for all 12 communities will be available this summer, and voters will have the opportunity to vote on the project this fall. The new NEMT High School will address the current facility’s outdated building systems, including much-needed ADA accessibility and code compliance upgrades, in addition to overcrowding. The new school will feature 21st-century learning environments, improved Individualized Education Program (IEP) accommodations, state-ofthe-art shop space, expanded program off erings, a new primary access roadway from Farm Street to reduce traffi c congestion, a full-size gym, a 750-seat auditorium, outdoor space for learning and a new cafeteria. With a focus on sustainability, the project is targeting LEED Silver+ certifi cation with energyefficient mechanical systems, provisions for solar panels and vegetated roofs. The compact, four-story design will feature an upper-level courtyard, roof decks and a double-height library rotunda. NEMT was selected from hundreds of applicants to receive funding for a feasibility study, a process that revealed building a new school is the most economical and educationally appropriate option in addressing the defi ciencies of the current school. Members of the community are reminded that the latest updates regarding the project and details about future community forums will be posted to the building project website and Facebook page as they become available. mey Rosane Anderson with PMA Consultants serving as the owner’s project manager, the new school will be a stateof-the-art facility and will allow Northeast to grow its enrollment from 1,270 students to 1,600 – a 26 percent increase.

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, JUNE 4, 2021 Page 3 Revere Board of Health provides COVID-19 update More than 200 students now vaccinated Special to Th e Advocate T he Revere Board of Health recently provided an update of vaccination eff orts in the city. As of May 27, 47 percent of residents are fully vaccinated (28,753) and 60 percent of residents (36,672) have received at least one dose. The positivity rate has fallen below two percent for the fi rst time since the pandemic started. Data has shown that when vaccination percentages increase, the weekly case numbers substantially decrease. To see more data visuals as it pertains to Revere, please visit www. revere.org/vaccine. Last week the Revere Board of Health and Cambridge Health Alliance went to the Revere Public Schools with the Pfi zer vaccine to vaccinate students aged 12 and older. In total, 205 students were vaccinated at the school-based clinics. The next vaccination clinic will be held at Rumney Marsh Academy from 3-7 p.m. on June ZBA continues hearing on Franklin Street board-up business By Adam Swift T he Zoning Board of Appeals (ZBA) is giving the City of Revere and the owners of a property housing a board-up business at 7 Franklin St., JEK Enterprises, one more month to iron out issues surrounding the use of and occupancy permit. Clean Joe and Board Up Kingz has operated out of the Franklin Street site since 2018, but it wasn’t until some issues were brought before the City of Revere in recent months that the issue of an occupancy permit for the site came to light. Last week, the ZBA continued the issues surrounding the business to its meeting at the end of June. A good chunk of the hourlong hearing last week centered on battling attorneys representing the city’s zoning and inspectional services departments and the property owner arguing the language of a decision from the city’s building inspector. That decision stated that “neither the NB zone nor any asserted grandfathered use of the property supports any of the structures or premises being utilized for a 24/7 business operation, particularly with the movement of and noise generated from large vehicles and construction material.” Attorney Lawrence Simeone, representing JEK Enterprises, argued that the decision by the building inspector was clearly a zoning issue, and that the ZBA had the authority to either overturn, modify or deny JEK’s appeal of the ruling. “Once the ZBA makes the determination, if it does, it will become law after 20 days,” said Simeone, which would help clear the path for his client to apply for the occupancy permit as has been requested by the city. Attorney Peter Brown, representing the zoning and building departments, countered that the issue was not properly being represented before the ZBA. He said the city has been after the owner to fi le the occupancy permit and to prove its case that the current use could be grandfathered in on the property. Much of the information the city has been seeking from JEK was sent to the city on the day of the ZBA hearing, Brown said. “They have alleged that they are grandfathered in by the previous use, and they very well may be,” said Brown. “They have to present evidence to the zoning offi cer; the zoning offi cer reviews it and makes a determination if it’s adverse to either the property owner or if it’s adverse to the abutters, then it comes before [the ZBA], and you review what the zoning offi - cer has done. The only thing the zoning offi cer has done is say you have to fi le for occupancy, and if you don’t, then you have a problem.” While the owner and city have battled over the legality of the zoning and occupancy, the more pressing matters may be the complaints from neighbors about the noise from the business and its hours of operation. Simeone said the owner has been working on mitigation eff orts and is working with the neighbors to address concerns. Simeone said there is no evidence that the business violates noise protection ordinances nor is there evidence that the traffi c out of the site impacts the neighborhood. As the legal battle plays out, Brown said, the current board up business will be allowed to stay in operation at 7 Franklin St. “The city has taken no action on the cease and desist,” said Brown. “The city can take these actions and is happy not to. We have simply told him he is not in compliance. By fi ling for ocLike us on Facebook advocate newspaper Facebook.com/Advocate.news.ma cupancy, he can continue to operate in the manner that he is.” City Council President Anthony Zambuto said he agrees with the ZBA’s motion to continue the hearing. He also pointed out that the building inspector’s decision was problematic, since there is nothing in the city’s zoning ordinance addressing 24/7 businesses. 6.

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, JUNE 4, 2021 Page 5 Beautification Committee recognizes first Beautiful Home of 2021 Mr. and Mrs. Juan Santos of Ford Street recently received this year’s fi rst Beautiful Home Award. (Courtesy Photo) I n a return to normalcy after the long pandemic, the Revere Beautifi cation Committee (RBC) has recognized this year’s fi rst “Beautiful Home.” The recipients of this year’s award are Mr. and Mrs. Juan Santos of Ford Street. The Santos family has created a lovely front space with very little grass by the clever use of a multitude of fl owers. As one walks into the front area, which is their parking spot, the fence along the side of the property is lined with attractive benches separated by pots of colorful geraniums and petunias. On the opposite side of the area, rose bushes, rhododendron bushes and yellow and orange lilies fl ank the fence leading to the front of the house. The front of the house contains pots of fl owers (impatiens, geraniums, dahlias) and hanging baskets of geraniums – creating a warm and welcoming area. All the yard work was done by the Santos family, which plans to beautify the rear of the property in the future. The RBC congratulates the Santos family and encourages all residents to beautify their property as they have done.                                                                   www.eight10barandgrille.com   We Have Reopened for Dine-In and Outside Seating every day beginning at 4 PM                                                                                                                                                         WE'RE OPEN! 8 Norwood Street, Everett (617) 387-9810 STAY SAFE!

The request to save the historic brickwork was made by Ward 2 City Councillor Ira Novoselsky.

Revere Economic Development Director Robert O’Brien said the city continues to support the project. “It is a worthy project in a very visible location, and I think it is going to make a major contribution to the reactivation of Shirley Avenue both at the street level in terms of commercial space and with the                                                       new residential units above,” said O’Brien. “I think the variances are consistent with previous variances granted [in the area].” Ward 6 City Councillor Richard Serino said he didn’t oppose the project, but he noted that he has had concerns from residents about parking variances the ZBA has granted in the recent past. City Council President Anthony Zambuto said he continues to support the project. He said it will be a beautiful, transportation-oriented building close by a T station and will help to beautify the neighborhood. RevereTV Spotlight H appy Memorial Day! The City of Revere held Memorial Day Services on Monday morning. RevereTV was there to cover the event live as it happened on the American Legion lawn on Broadway.

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, JUNE 4, 2021 Page 7 ~ GUEST COMMENTARY ~ Remembering Our Fallen Heroes on Memorial Day By Salvatore Giarratani "Sometimes the only thing you got is what you believe in"— Anonymous When I was a kid, my family always remembered Memorial Day and what it stood for, and over my many years, I still take time to honor all those fallen heroes who gave up their lives and future to ensure that our America continued to be the home of the brave and land of the free. This year I was over in the City of Revere down by the American Legion lawn for this year’s holiday ceremony. The day like the weekend that proceeded it was still raw and dismal but people still came in support of all those heroes known and unknown who sacrifi ced their very being in defense of their country and the liberties we all cherish. We are living in troubled times. Many feel like America is going through a test and many fear the worse. I won’t do that. We have gone through troubles over and over again and the fl ag still fl ew and our freedoms still reigned. This too shall pass. As I stood there on the lawn looking around at all who came out to thank all who fought and died for this country going back to Lexington, Concord and the Battle of Bunker Hill, I saw no defeat in sight. Memorial Day isn’t a holiday thanking those who served but remembering those who shed their lives for all of us. Toward the end of the ceremony, Taps played – all 24 notes of it – and when the bugle fi nished there was no clapping or cheering but only somber remembrance for the many sacrifi ces off ered over the life of this America of ours. Before the ceremony ended the names of our fallen heroes from Revere were read aloud with a bell tolling for each name, then and only then we saw who this day was truly for. Growing up in the 50s and 60s, I saw and spoke with real heroes who served in our military. I knew two survivors from the attack on Pearl Harbor who carried the scars of that Day of Infamy for all their remaining years. I also was very fortunate to have a neighbor who lived next door to me in Boston’s South End who was a member of that select group of fighters picked by Col. Teddy Roosevelt who rode up San Juan Hill during the Spanish American War, and then who re-enlisted when America went to Europe in World War I. When it came time for me to serve following my high school graduation in 1966, I enlisted in the United States Air Force. My Uncle Joe Harrington from Charlestown was disappointed that I didn’t enlist in the US Navy like he did in the days following Pearl Harbor in 1941, but he was as proud of me as I was of him. Mayor Arrigo extends Fire Relief Fund to support families of Kingman Avenue blaze M ayor Brian Arrigo has extended the donation deadline for the Mayor’s Fire Relief Fund to support the families of the recent fi re on Kingman Avenue. The city is working collaboratively with Red Cross to secure housing, resources, and aid for the two households impacted. "I am extending the Fire Relief Fund to allow our community the opportunity to securely off er a hand to the families affected by the fi re on Kingsman Ave.," said Arrigo. "I am deeply grateful for the Revere Fire Department and our fi rst responders for ensuring the safety of our residents. As our local nonprofi ts and community organizations continue to support these families, this fund allows all in our community to off er help as they head toward better times.” Impacted families have received monetary support from Red Cross Massachusetts and will continue to receive support from the City’s community partners. Donations may be made online via PayPal by visiting https://www.revere.org/mayors-offi ce/relief.

We note that The Boston Globe Spotlight team’s recent article vindicates the former Massachusetts Secretary of Veterans’ Services Francisco Ureña, regarding his role at the Holyoke Soldiers’ Home, where 76 elderly veterans died from the COVID-19 outbreak. Ureña, a decorated American war hero, dedicated public servant and dedicated veterans advocate, was wrongfully summoned to the State House to resign last year. Ureña was used as a scapegoat for the protection of the Baker Administration. As a result, his resignation caused severe damage to his reputation and livelihood. The Board of Directors of Veterans Assisting Veterans fi nds no better time than now to demand that Governor Baker issue a public apology to Ureña. We call upon the people and veterans of Massachusetts to directly contact the governor and his administration and demand this public apology. The deaths of veterans at the Holyoke Soldiers’ Home are tragic and could have been avoided had the governor favored professionalism and skills in his choice to oversee the facility rather than political patronage and nepotism. Sincerely, John A. MacDonald Veterans Assisting Veterans

(Advocate photos by Tara Vocino) BBB advises travelers on how to avoid scams W hen looking for a good deal for a family vacation or a getaway, the Better Business Bureau (BBB) encourages people to plan ahead to save money, avoid scams and travel safely. Scammers will often target people looking for great deals online by off ering tempting vacation packages at unrealistically low prices. One place to begin an online search is BBB.org for fi nding reputable travel agencies, agents and websites. BBB adds the following tips to help ensure an enjoyable vacation: • Plan ahead. Allow plenty of time to research hotels, flights and the area where you will be staying. Typically, the earlier reservations are made, the better the deals and the lower the risk of the destination being booked solid. Making reservations in advance also locks in rates and prevents higher prices later during prime spring break, peak summer or holiday travel seasons. • Avoid broad internet searches. Entering phrases like “best deals” into whichever search engine used can sometimes bring up websites that look offi cial but are designed solely to rip people off . • Be alert for travel scams. Watch out for phone calls or letters claiming a “free trip” or websites off ering prices that appear too good to be true. It’s easy to extend questionable off ers like these, but the vast majority of them leave hopeful travelers in limbo – and out of money. • Do your homework. Ask family and friends to recommend a travel agent or travel website and visit BBB.org for free business profi les. Research the business and read customer reviews about any rentals under consideration. • Get trip details in writing. Before making a final payment, get all the details of the trip in writing. This should include the total cost, restrictions, cancellation penalties and names of the airlines and hotels. Also, review and keep a copy of the airline’s and hotel’s cancellation and refund policies, as well as the cancellation policies of the travel agency or booking site used. • Consider travel insurance. Travel insurance covers things like trip cancellations or medical emergencies. There are diff erent levels of coverage based on what type of plan purchased. Ask a lot of questions, and always read the fi ne print to see what’s covered and what’s not. • Pay with a credit card. Paying with a credit card provides additional protection if something should go wrong with the travel reservation. • Planning to travel internationally? Check to see if there are any advisories affecting Canada, and the U.S. Travel Association for any issues that may impact the trip. No matter when or where you are traveling, take extra precautions: • Wait to post on social media. It's fun to post adventures with friends and family, but wait until getting back from the trip. Photos and social media posts of the family having a great time also let’s thieves know the house is empty. • Check your home insurance. If your home will be unattended while away, make sure you know your responsibilities under your home insurance policy. Some policies do not cover damage if nobody checks on your home for a certain amount of time. Share a copy of the itinerary with a family member or close friend. Include the contact information of someone joining you on your trip. • Take a map. People rely heavily on smartphones and GPS. Consider having an atlas or hard copy map just in case of technical diffi culties. • Check the weather conditions where you will be traveling and pack appropriate supplies and clothing. • Avoid traveling alone. Use the buddy system and stick with the group. • Use a hotel safe to store extra cash, and keep any valuables under lock and key.

Healy celebrates 100th birthday A By Tara Vocino standing room only crowd surprised Father Patrick Healy on his 100th birthday at St. Michael’s Chapel at the Chelsea Soldiers Home on Sunday. “It took me 100 years to get here,” the priest of 74 years, Father Patrick Healy, said at the altar. “It’s spiritual to have a crowd here.” Healy attributes his longevity to following the will of God, eating healthily and exercising. The chaplain offi ciates Mass daily at the Soldiers Home where he lives with 500 other veterans. “The Lord willed it,” the retired Army Chaplain said. “I never anticipated making it to 100.” Celebrating Memorial Day on Monday with his fellow veterans, family members and friends, Healy served in the US Army for 23 years in the ’70s, serving in Vietnam, Korea, Germany and New Jersey. He turned 100 on Tuesday. Holding a photo of himself serving in the US Army in the 1970s is Fr. Patrick Healy.

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, JUNE 4, 2021 Page 11 Nine suspects charged in large-scale cocaine conspiracy N ine individuals were recently charged in connection with a wide-ranging drug traffi cking conspiracy that involved dozens of parcels suspected of containing kilograms of cocaine sent from Puerto Rico to various addresses throughout Eastern Massachusetts and Rhode Island. Reportedly, investigators intercepted eight parcels and seized more than 16 kilograms of cocaine from the mail. “We allege that the defendants received parcels sent via U.S. Mail from Puerto Rico and containing kilograms of cocaine – which we allege they then sold here in our communities. That’s illegal and dangerous, of course, and it is an aff ront to the hard-working public servants in the U.S. Postal Service,” said Acting U.S. Attorney Nathaniel Mendell. “The traffi cking conspiracy was detected and dismantled thanks to eff ective investigative work by the people who protect our mail system and by local and state law enforcement. Those investigators remain on the lookout, and the public should know that people who misuse and abuse public services for criminal schemes can expect to face justice.” “Today’s arrests are an example of our commitment and dedication to protect those we serve and to keep our communities safe from illegal drugs and those who seek to harm the public through their continued eff orts to break the law,” said the Acting Inspector in Charge of the Boston Division of the U.S. Postal Inspection Service, Joshua McCallister. “These defendants allegedly used the mail to transport narcotics from Puerto Rico to Massachusetts and Rhode Island, introducing narcotics into the communities in which we all serve. This conduct will never be tolerated. Winning the battle against illicit drugs is a top priority for the Postal Service and the Inspection Service. Our objectives are to rid the mail of illicit drug traffi cking and the associated violence, preserve the integrity of the mail, and, most importantly, provide a safe environment for postal employees and Postal Service customers – the American public.” As alleged in the charging documents, since February 2020, law enforcement has been investigating a drug traffi cking organization operated by Patrick Joseph. Based on a wiretap investigation, it is alleged that Joseph coordinated the transportation of 10-20 kilograms of cocaine at a time from the Dominican Republic to Puerto Rico, and eventually to Massachusetts and Rhode Island via the U.S. Mail; during this investigation, the cocaine seized by investigators was found concealed in two-kilogram quantities inside air fryers and locking cash boxes before being sent through the mail. Reportedly, investigators seized various fi rearms, 21 kilograms of cocaine and over $100,000 in cash. The following defendants AG Healey secures nearly $800K for consumers from auto lender A ttorney General Maura Healey recently announced that an automobile lender will provide nearly $800,000 in debt relief and refunds to Massachusetts consumers to settle allegations that it facilitated the sale of defective and unsafe vehicles by two used car dealerships in Westport and Fall River. In an assurance of discontinuance that was fi led in Suff olk Superior Court, United Auto Credit Corporation (UACC) has agreed to provide relief to consumers who purchased vehicles at F&R Auto in Westport and City Line Auto Sales, Inc. in Fall River and fi nanced loans through UACC. “For many consumers, buying a car is the largest purchase of a lifetime, and when it’s defective or inoperable, it can have catastrophic ripple eff ects on daily life and wellbeing, including employment, housing, and even health,” said Healey. “This settlement furthers our office’s mission to protect consumers from predatory and unfair practices and secures hundreds of thousands of dollars in relief for those victimized by this company.” UACC is a subprime automobile fi nance company that contracts with a network of automobile dealerships nationwide, including dealerships located in Massachusetts. UACC provides high-cost auto loans to consumers with poor credit histories through dealer-arranged agreements, and it fi nances these loans at the statutory maximum 21 percent interest rate. An investigation by the Massachusetts Attorney General’s Office found that UACC facilitated the sale of defective and inoperable vehicles by F&R Auto and City Line by supplying the dealerships with fi nancing, despite knowing of hundreds of consumer complaints against the dealerships and of their high default and repossession rates. UACC also illegally required some consumers who had to voluntarily surrender their vehicles when they could not afford their payments to sign a Voluntary Surrender Agreement with broad release language that waived all recourse against UACC, while pursuing judgments against consumers who failed to pay their defi ciency balances after repossession. Under the terms of the settlement, UACC will release and forgive all unsatisfied debt and waive all uncollected defi ciency balances owed by Massachusetts consumers who purchased vehicles from F&R Auto and City Line and fi nanced them through UACC on or after October 5, 2014; waive all uncollected deficiency balances and refund payments toward defi - ciency balances for all Massachusetts consumers who voluntarily surrendered their vehicles to UACC by signing the release with broad waiver language; and repair these consumers’ credit with credit reporting agencies. UACC will also pay $250,000 to the Massachusetts Attorney General’s Offi ce. UACC has undertaken substantial changes to its business practices and procedures to comply with Massachusetts law. This includes implementing new debt collection and wage garnishment processes and changing the way it conducts business with dealerships. This settlement is the latest action Healey has taken to protect consumers from unfair and deceptive practices in the sale and fi nancing of used autos. With respect to these two dealerships alone, the Attorney General has obtained more than $1.9 million in restitution and debt relief for consumers and with the lenders with whom they did business. Both F&R Auto and City Line are now out of business. UACC consumers who have questions or concerns about the settlement can contact the Attorney General’s hotline specifi cally designated for this case at 617-573-5336. were arrested and charged by criminal complaint with one count of conspiracy to distribute and to possess with intent to distribute cocaine and cocaine base: • P atrick Joseph, 39, of Stoughton • Donald Cue, 36, of Randolph • Night Menard, 36, of Randolph • Christian Junior AlvaradoDeleon, 20, of Randolph • Oscar Nieves-Sosa, 20, a Dominican national residing in Hyde Park • Stiven Berrio Osorio, 21, a Colombian national residing in Chelsea • Robert Monteiro, 37, of Brockton • Patrick Snow, 43, of Harwich • Felix Baez-Munoz, 31, of Methuen, who remains a fugitive “The multiple kilos of cocaine intercepted through the combined work of these partner agencies would have, had they reached the streets, fueled despair and violence,” said State Police Colonel Christopher Mason. “The message to traffi ckers should be clear: the postal mail is not a safe route for you to distribute your poison and we will be as vigilant in interdicting that method of transport as we are with all other methods.” “The Boston Police Department continues to work in partnership with our federal partners to prevent and reduce violence in our communities,” said Boston Police Department Superintendent-in-Chief Gregory Long. “Today’s arrests and seizure of fi rearms and drugs is a testament to the strong working relationships that ultimately resulted in removing dangerous fi rearms and drugs off the street.” If the defendants are found guilty, they face a sentence of up to 20 years in prison, three years and up to life of supervised release and a fi ne of $1 million. Sentences are imposed by a federal district court judge based on the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and other statutory factors. Statewide efforts begin to enforce fireworks regulations S tate Fire Marshal Peter Ostroskey and State Police Colonel Christopher Mason recently announced that fi reworks enforcement eff orts have started. The State Police Bomb Squad is part of the Fire and Explosion Investigation Unit (F&EIU) assigned to the Offi ce of the State Fire Marshal, which has already started working with local police and fi re departments to enforce the fi reworks laws and intercept fi reworks being brought into the state illegally. “It is illegal to bring fi reworks into Massachusetts, even if they were legally purchased elsewhere,” said Ostroskey. In communities throughout the Commonwealth, there has been a signifi cant rise in resident complaints regarding fi reworks. The State Police Bomb Squad had a 63 percent increase in response to fi reworks calls in 2020 over 2019. During the F&EIU 2020 fi reworks enforcement operation, there were 47 criminal summonses issued over a fourday period. This year’s enforcement operation has already started and will last longer. “In addition to special enforcement eff orts to intercept fi reworks coming into Massachusetts, troopers and local police will seize illegal fi reworks they fi nd during routine traffi c stops,” said Mason. “We don’t want a repeat of the huge increase in resident complaints we experienced last year.” “There will be supervised displays of fi reworks this year unlike last year, so we encourage you to leave the fi reworks to the professionals,” said Ostroskey. “Fireworks are illegal because they are dangerous. Fires started by fi reworks in Massachusetts increased 180 percent in 2020 from 2019.” In the past decade, there have been 941 major fi re and explosion incidents involving illegal fi reworks reported to the Massachusetts Fire Incident Reporting System. The incidents caused 12 civilian injuries, 42 fi re service injuries and an estimated monetary loss of $2.1 million, which is high considering that most fi reworks fi res are outdoor brush fi res. Additionally, 32 people were treated at Massachusetts emergency rooms for severe burn injuries from fi reworks (burns covering more than fi ve percent of the body) according to the Massachusetts Burn Injury Reporting System. This does not include visits to hospital emergency rooms for eye injuries, amputations, puncture wounds or smaller burns. Forty-one percent of fi reworks-related burn injuries reported by hospitals to the Offi ce of the State Fire Marshal in the last 10 years were to children under age 18; 26 percent were to children under age 10.

Then it will be raised to the top of the staff . Memorial Day is not a day to honor the living, but to the contrary, it is a day to honor the dead. “For every soldier, sailor, airman, and Marine, Memorial Day is a somber day to honor the more than one million American heroes who died in military service from the American Revolution through the global war on terrorism and every battle in between. Like all of us who have served our country, we went out and did what we had to do without question or hesitation to protect our rights and freedoms. When one of us hurts, we all hurt, and I, unfortunately, like most of you who served our country, lost many good friends, extended family and brothers and sisters in arms.” Following Bowker’s speech, Mayor Brian Arrigo participated in the laying of the wreaths to honor the fallen. Silvestri and several Revere veterans then read the names of all those Revere residents who died in service to the country from the Revolution to present day. After the traditional Memorial Day service, Silvestri and the city honored those veterans who have died over the past year and have not been properly commemorated due to Covid-19 restrictions.

Page 14 THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, JUNE 4, 2021 Massachusetts business owners polled on reopening T he Fiscal Alliance Foundation recently announced the results of a new, statewide poll of Massachusetts business owners on issues related to the COVID-19 pandemic and the Massachusetts reopening process. The poll, conducted with live operators and fi elded on May 25-26, 2021, surveyed 374 registered voters in businessowning/operating households statewide. The margin of error is +/- 4.9 percent with a 95 percent confi dence level and was sponsored by the Fiscal Alliance Foundation and conducted by James Eltringham of Advantage Inc, a polling company in the DC area. This is the fi rst statewide poll conducted of business owners, and what they think should be done to help get the state’s economy growing again. Governor Charlie Baker had originally called for Massachusetts to be re-opened by August 1. After neighboring states began accelerating their re-opening, updates from the Center for Disease Control, and intense political pressure, Baker set an earlier re-opening date to Memorial Day weekend. According to the poll, that pressure to get Baker to re-open earlier is widely approved of by the business community. The poll found overwhelming support for Baker’s move to fully reopen the state in time for the Memorial Day weekend holiday, with four out of fi ve business owners supporting the move from the original August 1 reopening target. Businesses related to manufacturing, health care, real estate/construction, and retail are the biggest pro-reopening sectors, while banking and fi nance are the least eager. “The poll confi rms what many of us know intuitively—those most aff ected by the shutdown are the most eager to get back into the normal swing of things and avoid the loss of a second early summer season,” noted Paul Craney, a spokesman for the Fiscal Alliance Foundation. The poll also questioned business owners on their views as to how to best spend the federal pandemic relief funding Massachusetts is due to receive. A plurality of business owners agreed those funds would best be used to provide tax relief. The second most popular choice was a tie between using the relief funds for “Get Back to Work” bonuses to get people off of unemployment, and using them to replenish the unemployment trust fund. The unemployment trust fund has been the recent focus of pro-business organizations as the Baker administration recently announced dramatic and unanticipated fee increases to this fund. Even if your business did not lay off workers during the pandemic, all Massachusetts businesses are being asked to pay this fee over the next 20 years. The fee would even be applied to businesses over that time period which haven’t even been created yet. “The fact that an obscure fee paid to the unemployment trust fund is tied as the second highest priority when polled shows you that businesses owners are really nervous about this issue. Lawmakers and the Governor should understand that businesses really want this issue addressed and want federal pandemic funds to be used to pay off this unfair debt they have to pay because of the shutdown orders issued by the Governor,” noted Craney. The fi nal question of the poll asked business owners on their feelings in the 2022 gubernatorial election. Heading into the election, there is clearly major concern about the business environment; roughly 75 percent are “much” or “somewhat” more likely to support a smallbusiness candidate and jobs and taxes are the top issues by a considerable margin. “If Governor Charlie Baker does not run for a third term, it would be wise for the next Governor and the candidates running in 2022 to know that what unites the business community is their desire to see the next Governor embrace a probusiness agenda,” concluded Craney.

The Patriots were victorious, 5-2, in the first meeting last Friday in Revere. Unfortunately for the Patriots, Wednesday’s contest will count towards Greater Boston League play, and last Friday’s tilt was not considered a league game. Revere managed only four hits in Wednesday’s loss and was blanked but not dominated by Rams starter Brooke Warren, who fi nished with a modest fi ve strikeouts. The Revere hitters did make contact against Warren but couldn’t push across a run. “This game [was] the exact opposite [of last Friday’s contest]. They put the bunts down, and we didn’t make the plays. They got the right hits and we didn’t,” Revere Head Coach Joe Ciccarello told the press after the game. “That’s just the way it goes. I hate to lose but when you step back and learn from it, sometimes you look back at the season and that loss can make you get better.” Revere starting pitcher Adrianna Fusco allowed fi ve hits and walked six, which helped lead to the fi ve Classical runs. But she was still overpowering with 14 strikeouts in the loss, which was the fi rst defeat of the season for the Patriots. In last Friday’s 5-2 victory, Fusco fanned 15, gave up four hits and walked fi ve. Ciccarello told the press after that game that Fusco was unable to compete in her junior year last spring due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As a result she is making the most of her senior-year opportunity. “Last year would have been her fi rst year starting but it didn’t happen,” he said. “She’s waited three years for this and now she’s fi nally the starter as a senior.” The Patriot offense also came through last Friday. Elianni Monge led the way with two hits and two RBI, and Lynzie Anderson stroked two hits and scored twice. Also driving in runs were Gianna Uminski and Nina Cassinello. Adrianna Keefe and Julianna Raff a each scored a run. Ciccarello said he had prepared his team in practice to face the left-handed Warren. “It worked. Everybody put the bat on the ball,” he said. “Even when we made outs, we made some good hard NEW 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 significant 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 beneficiaries 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 benefi ciaries 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 beneficiary will establish a beneficiary IRA account and will then select a benefi ciary of his or her inherited IRA account. That subsequent beneficiary would be deemed to be a successor benefi ciary. If the designated benefi ciary, however, had died prior to 2020, then the successor benefi ciary 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 10-year 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.

Baseball: Patriots off to 2-1 start The Revere High School baseball team is off to a winning start in 2021. Coming off a 7-13 overall fi nish in 2019, the Patriots have scored victories thus far over Everett, 8-1, and the Salem Academy Charter School, 9-2. The loss was to Somerville by a 5-1 count. Revere is next scheduled to play at Medford on Monday.

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, JUNE 4, 2021 Page 15 State Fire Marshal provides summer fire safety tips S tate Fire Marshal Peter Ostroskey recently off ered the following tips to help keep residents safe this summer. Grilling safety Between 2016 and 2020, Massachusetts fi re departments responded to 427 fi res involving grills, hibachis and barbecues. These fi res caused 15 civilian injuries, six fi refi ghter injuries and $4 million in property damage. In 2020 alone, there were 74 grill fi res that injured one civilian, one fi refi ghter and caused $454,250 in estimated damages. Ostroskey off ered these safety tips for grilling safety: • Always grill outdoors. • Place grills 10 feet away from the house and deck railings; make sure grills are not under eaves or overhanging branches. • Do not use a gas or charcoal grill on any porch, balcony or fi re escape. • Gas grills can be used on fi rst fl oor decks or patios only if there is an outdoor stairway to the ground or it is at ground level. • Keep all matches, lighters and lighter fl uid away from children. • Create a circle of safety: Keep children and pets three feet away from grills; children should never play near grills. On April 25, 2020, at 3:52 p.m., the Littleton Fire Department was called to a gas grill fi re in a singlefamily home. The homeowner started the grill on the rear deck and a while later noticed fl ames coming out the bottom. She went over to shut the LP tank off and burned her hands. The fi re coming out the back of the grill ignited the exterior wall of the home and caused $75,000 in damage. On May 30, 2020, the Lunenburg Fire Department responded to a gas grill fi re in a two-family home at 5 p.m. The grill was on a patio and ignited the exterior wall of the home, causing $115,000 in damages. It spread to a nearby home, causing another $1,000 in estimated damage. Smoke alarms alerted the residents. On August 5, 2020, at 8:21 p.m., the Revere Fire Department responded to a gas grill fire in a two-family home. The grill was on a third-fl oor porch and ignited the wall, causing $110,000 in damage. Smoke alarms operated but the home did not have fi re sprinklers. On September 13, 2020, the Plymouth Fire Department responded to a grill fi re on the back deck of a single-family home. Working smoke alarms alerted the residents, and no one was injured at this fi re. The home had no fi re sprinklers and damage was estimated at $110,000. Charcoal grills Propane is the most common grilling fuel, but many people use charcoal grills. Here are some charcoal grill safety tips: • Only use charcoal starter fl uid; do not use gasoline or kerosene to start a fi re in a grill. • Never add lighter fluid to burning briquettes or hot coals; doing so may cause a fl ash fi re and result in serious burn injuries. • Charcoal briquettes give off carbon monoxide, a colorless, odorless gas that can be deadly; always use charcoal grills outdoors in a well-ventilated area; never use charcoal grills indoors. • For proper disposal of grill ashes, allow the coals to burn out completely and then cool for 48 hours before disposal. • If you must dispose of ashes before they are completely cooled, thoroughly soak them in water before putting them in a metal container. Gasoline and lawnmowers “Is your teenager fi nally old enough to mow the lawn? Then be sure to discuss gasoline safety at the same time; talk about why it is important to let the engine cool before refueling,” said Ostroskey. Gasoline vapors are highly fl ammable and refueling a hot motor can ignite them. Gasoline spilled onto clothing can give off vapors until completely dry and be ignited by any heat source. Gasoline vapors can travel a long distance to fi nd an ignition source, which is why gasoline cannot be stored inside the house. In the past fi ve years, 338 lawn mower fi res caused one civilian death, three civilian injuries, four fi re service injuries and an estimated loss of $1.6 million. • Store gasoline outside only in approved containers. • Keep gasoline away from all heat sources, such as smoking materials, pilot lights, campfi res and grills. • Refuel a cooled lawn mower; never refi ll while it is hot. • Keep hands and feet away from a mower while it is running. On May 20, 2020, the Charlton Fire Department was called to a riding lawn mower fi re. The owner stated that he had just given it a tune-up and was mowing the lawn when he saw fl ames coming out from under the hood. On May 21, 2020, the Halifax Fire Department was dispatched to a garden tractor fi re in the yard of a single-family home. Gasoline in the engine ignited, consuming the tractor. Damage was estimated at $500. On May 30, 2020, at 7:35 p.m., the Leominster Fire Department responded to a lawn mower fi re in a back yard. The lawn mower backfi red as it was being shut down and caught fi re. On July 24, 2020, at 12:51 p.m., the Northbridge Fire Department responded to a garden tractor fi re in a backyard. The gas tank had recently been fi lled, and the fi re started shortly after starting. Gasoline and outdoor fi res “Never use gasoline to start a campfi re or add it to any indoor or outdoor fi re,” said Ostroskey. “We have had so many injuries this year from people mishandling gasoline and other fl ammable liquids.” In the past fi ve years, Massachusetts hospitals have reported treating 137 people with serious burn injuries from gasoline. On July 24, 2020, a 43-year old Lanesborough woman suff ered severe burns on more than 70 percent of her body when she poured gasoline on a campfi re. On July 19, 2020, a 39-year old Lawrence woman received burns SAFETY | SEE Page 16

Page 16 THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, JUNE 4, 2021 SAFETY | FROM Page 15 to multiple parts of her body when someone poured gasoline onto a barbeque. Smoking safety Smoking was the leading cause of fi re deaths in Massachusetts last year, and there have been many fi res this spring from improperly discarded smoking materials on porches and in backyards. These fi res can smolder undetected for a long time, and when they erupt into fl ames, travel fast. If they start on the exterior of the building, these fi res can get a strong hold before the interior smoke alarms start to warn anyone of the danger. “If you allow smoking on your property, provide appropriate receptacles for discarding smoking materials: a deep ashtray, a can with sand or water. Don’t let people toss smoking materials into the mulch, leaves, grass, potted plants or other containers that can catch fire. Don’t let them stub them out on the porch railing or stairs,” said Ostroskey. “Be a responsible smoker. Remember to put it out, all the way, every time.” On February 1, 2021, at 12:30 a.m., the Milford Fire Department responded to a fire at a singlefamily home. The fi re was started by a cigarette on a rear porch. Two people were injured at this fi re. Smoke alarms alerted the occupants. The home did not have sprinklers and damage was estimated at $270,000. On March 18, 2021, the Carlisle Fire Department was called to NOTICE CITY OF REVERE, MA APPROVED LOAN ORDER CY-2021 CWSRF PLANNING PROJECT No. 6805 ORDERED: That $1,500,000 is appropriated for the purpose of                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 a smoking fi re in a single-family home.

On April 22, 2021, the Berkley Fire Department responded to a smoking fi re in a single-family home. A cigarette in an ashtray on the rear deck of the home started the fi re. No one was injured at this fi re. Damage was estimated at $50,000. On March 16, 2021, at 4:48 p.m., the Templeton Fire Department was called to a smoking fi re in a single-family home. The fi re was started by discarded cigarettes igniting construction debris around the rear porch. No one was injured at this fi re. Alarms were present and alerted the occupants. The home did not have sprinklers. Damage was estimated at $20,000. On April 19, 2020, a fi re in two apartment buildings in New Bedford killed two men ages 40 and 49. It also displaced 40 other residents of two buildings. The fire was started in an alleyway by smoking materials that were dropped from an upper floor, landing in and igniting trash and debris near a dumpster. Fireworks fires increased nearly 200 percent last year “The possession and use of all fi reworks by private citizens is illegal in Massachusetts,” said Ostroskey.

Last year fi res from fi reworks increased by 180 percent from 2019. At 3 a.m. on May 27, 2020, the exterior stairs of a two-family home in New Bedford were ignited by illegal fi reworks. Damage from this fi re was estimated at $3,000. Around 11 p.m. on June 14, 2020, the Worcester Fire Department responded to a fi re in a triple-decker started by illegal fi reworks.

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, JUNE 4, 2021 Page 17 Choosing a wedding or prom dress S hopping for the perfect dress is a crucial part of a How to Downsize Your Home for a Move Dear Savvy Senior, What tips can you off er for downsizing? My husband and I would like to relocate from our house into a retirement community condo near our daughter but need to get rid of a lot of personal possessions before we can move. Overwhelmed Willa Dear Willa, The process of weeding through a house full of stuff and parting with old possessions is diffi cult and overwhelming for most people. A good place to start is to see if your kids, grandkids or other family members would like any of your unused possessions. Whatever they don’t want, here are a few tips and services that may help you downsize. Sell It Selling your stuff is one way to get rid of your possessions and pad your pocketbook at the same time. Selling options may include consignment shops, a garage sale, estate sale and selling online. Consignment shops are good for selling old clothing, household furnishings and decorative items – they typically get 30 to 40 percent of the sale price. A good old-fashion garage sale is another option, or for large-scale downsizing you could hire an estate sale company to come in and sell your items. See EstateSales.net and EstateSales. org to locate options in your area. Some estate companies will even pick up your stuff and sell it at their own location – they typically take about 35 percent of the profi ts. Selling online is also a great option and opens you up to a wider audience. The OfferUp app (OfferUp.com), Facebook Marketplace (Facebook.com/marketplace), Craigslist (Craigslist.org) and the CPlus for Craigslist app (Yanflex.com) are great options for selling locally, which can eliminate the packing and shipping costs and hassle. These websites and apps also don’t take a cut of your sales, but you’re responsible for connecting with your buyer and making the exchange of money and goods. Donate It If you itemize on your tax returns, donating your belongings to charitable organizations is another way to downsize and get a tax deduction. The Salvation Army (SAtruck.org, 800-728-7825) will actually come to your house and pick up a variety of household items, including furnishings and clothing. Goodwill (Goodwill. org) is another good option to donate to but they don’t off er pickup services. If your deductions exceed $500, you’ll need to file Form 8283, “Noncash Charitable Contributions” (IRS.gov/pub/irs-pdf/f8283. pdf). You’ll also need a receipt from the organization for every batch of items you donate and will need to create an itemized list of the items donated. To calculate fair market value for your stuff , use the Salvation Army’s donation guide at SAtruck.org/home/donationvalueguide. Toss It If you have a lot of junk you want to get rid of, contact your municipal trash service to see if they provide bulk curbside pickup services. Or, depending on where you live, you could hire a company like 1-800-Got-Junk (1800gotjunk. com, 800-468-5865) or Junk-King (Junk-King.com, 888-888-5865) to come in and haul it off for a moderate fee. Another disposal option is Bagster (TheBagster.com, 877-7892247) by Waste Management. This is a dumpster bag that you purchase for around $30, fi ll it to a limit of 3,300 pounds and schedule a pickup, which costs anywhere between $100 and $300 depending on your area. Get Help If you want or need some help, consider hiring a senior move manager. These are professional organizers who help older adults and their families with the daunting process of downsizing and moving to a new residence. To locate one in your area, visit the National Association of Senior Move Managers at NASMM. org or call 877-606-2766. You can also search at Caring Transitions (CaringTransitions.com), which is a large senior relocation and transition services franchise company that has more than 200 franchises nationwide. Send your senior questions to: Savvy Senior, P.O. Box 5443, Norman, OK 73070, or visit SavvySenior. org.

But like many purchases with a big price tag – and high stakes – there’s a lot that can go wrong. Buying a wedding dress or prom dress can come with unexpected expenses, delayed orders, surprise policies and unwanted stress in advance of a big event. Follow this advice to ensure that dress shopping goes smoothly: • Start shopping early: Experts recommend buying a wedding dress between six and nine months ahead of the big day. You don’t need as much time for prom or another special occasion, but experts recommend starting a couple months ahead. Delivery and alterations can take time, and spring is busy season for seamstresses. The more time you have, the more you can comparison shop and the less rushed and stressed you’ll feel. • Be clear about your budget: Be upfront about your budget, so your sales person shows you dresses in your price range. You don’t want to fall in love with a dress only to fi nd that it is way over your budget. • Factor in alterations: Dress alterations can be costly, so double-check policies in advance. Some dress shops off er alterations for a fl at fee or cap expenses at a certain amount. • Don’t pay 100 percent upfront when buying a wedding dress: Most salons ask for a deposit of about 50 percent of the dress price for expensive gowns. You should not be pressured into paying the entire cost of a wedding dress upfront.

This was the Senate’s second state budget in the COVID-19 era and most senators participated virtually from their homes or offi ces.

Attest: Ashley E. Melnik, City Clerk Approved by: Mayor Brian M. Arrigo Date: June 1, 2021 Attest: Ashley E. Melnik City Clerk June 4, 2021 er, the Senate also did its usual “bundling” of many amendments. Instead of acting on all the amendments one at a time, hundreds of the proposed amendments are bundled and put into two piles— one pile that will be approved and the other that will be rejected-with a single vote on each pile. Senate President Karen Spilka, or the senator who is fi lling in for her at the podium, orchestrates the approval and rejection of the bundled amendments with a simple: “All those in favor say ‘aye,’ those opposed say ‘no.’ The ayes have it and the amendments are approved.” Or “All those in favor say ‘aye,’ those opposed say ‘no.’ The no’s have it and the amendments are rejected.” Senators don’t actually vote yes or no, and, in fact, they don’t say a word. The outcome was predetermined earlier behind closed doors. «The effi cient Senate budget process this year refl ected lots of careful work by our Ways and Means Chair, Michael Rodriques, and our Senate President, Karen Spilka, to build consensus in the weeks before the budget,» said Senate President Pro Tempore Sen. Will Brownsberger (D-Belmont). Despite repeated requests from Beacon Hill Roll Call, Senate President Karen Spilka’s offi ce did not respond to a request to comment on the bundled amendments and the small number of roll calls. And no response was received from Spilka’s leadership team of Sens. Cindy Creem (D-Newton), Joan Lovely (DSalem), Mike Barrett (D-Lexington) and Sal DiDomenico (D-Everett). «Roll call requests are based on a number of factors that are the subject of both continuing and contemporaneous discussions within the caucus based on specifi c issues,» said GOP Minority Leader Bruce Tarr (R-North Reading). “[The process] more accurately highlights the increasingly effi cient use of the legislative rubber stamp,” said Chip Ford, executive director of Citizens for Limited Taxation. “Massachusetts doesn’t need the cost of 200 legislators when a handful decide all legislation before it comes for a vote. If the three token ‘loyal opposition’ Republican senators weren’t taking up space taxpayers could at least save the ‘leadership stipends’ they collect.” “This type of process was not the norm only several years ago,» said Massachusetts Fiscal Alliance executive director Paul Craney. «Over the last few years, with new legislative leadership, they rush through votes, often don’t record the votes and don’t allow the public to gain access to what is happening because most of the important work is done behind closed doors. With that being said, the state Senate is much more transparent than Speaker Ron Mariano and Republican Brad Jones in the House. The House is arguably the most opaque legislature in America.” $47.72 BILLION FISCAL 2022 BUDGET (S 3) Senate 40-0, approved a $47.72 million fiscal 2022 state budget for the fi scal year that begins July 1, 2021. Senators added on an additional $63.7 million in spending during three days of debate on the Senate fl oor. The House recently approved its own version of the budget. A House-Senate conference committee will hammer out a compromise version. “This is an extraordinarily hopeful budget, designed to get us ‘back to better,’” said Senate President Karen Spilka (D-Ashland). “The Massachusetts Senate vowed to act on what we learned from the COVID-19 public health crisis and invest in areas that lift up our children, families and seniors across all communities -- and that is exactly what this budget does.” Mike Rodrigues (D-Westport), Chair of the Senate Committee on Ways and Means said, “The Senate has charted a hopeful path forward this week and passed a fi scally responsible fi scal Year 2022 budget that makes investments to expand educational opportunity, safeguard the health and wellness of our most vulnerable, support our children and families and meet the needs of our post-pandemic economy. “The budget that we passed today focuses on the future and ensures that every resident, business, and family can fi nd success in a postpandemic Massachusetts,” said Sen. Patrick O’Connor (R-Weymouth), Ranking Minority Member of the Senate Committee on Ways and Means. “The past year has been diffi cult for so many, and this budget strives to put in place programs designed to recover from the eff ects of COVID-19. Now is the time for us to rebuild and make the commonwealth an even better place to call home.” (A “Yes” vote is for the budget). Sen. Joseph Boncore Yes TAX DEDUCTION FOR REMOTE LEARNING SUPPLIES (S 3) Senate 5-34, rejected an amendment that would provide up to a $500 tax deduction for any K-12 teachers’ expenses they paid for the costs of remote teaching their students. Eligible expenses include professional development courses taken related to the curriculum, books, supplies, computer equipment and for personal protective equipment, disinfectant and other supplies used for the prevention of the spread of COVID-19. Amendment supporters said it is unfair that teachers have to personally pay from their own pockets to cover for these costs. He noted that a recent survey showed that teachers spent an average of $745 was spent of their own money on learning materials. Amendment opponents said they support reimbursing these teachers but argued a tax deduction is not the best way to do it. They noted the state should use some of the billions of dollars in federal funds it receives under the Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief Fund and directly reimburse the teachers. (A “Yes” vote is for the amendment allowing a $500 deduction. A “No” vote is against it.) Sen. Joseph Boncore No ALLOW FARMERS A TAX DEDUCTION FOR DONATING FOOD (S 3) Senate 6-33, rejected an amendment that would give a taxpayer who is in the trade or business of farming and makes a charitable contribution of food to a nonprofi t food organization a deduction on their income tax return for up to 25 percent of the value of the food. The amendment also regulates the contributions and sets standards that the food quality must meet. Amendment supporters said the deduction will help these generous farmers and the charities. They noted that the federal government and several states already allow this deduction. Amendment opponents said the state cannot aff ord the revenue loss in a budget that is tight and still relies on money from the Rainy Day Fund. They noted the budget delays the implementation of the overall charitable deduction that was discontinued in 2001 and argued it is not time to pick and choose a specifi c group of taxpayers who will receive a charitable deduction. (A “Yes” vote is for the amendment allowing the charitable deduction for farmers. A “No” vote is against it.) Sen. Joseph Boncore No ADDITIONAL $3 MILLION FOR LOCAL BOARDS OF HEALTH (S 3) Senate 39-0, approved an amendment increasing funding for local boards of health by $3 million (from $10 million to $13 million). Amendment supporters said that these grants will improve public health protections across the state by strengthening local capacity and supporting sharing of services among cities and towns. “The pandemic made clear what has long been true: Protecting our health requires strengthening investments at the local level,” said sponsor Sen. Jo Comerford (DNorthampton). “In our commonwealth, every municipality has their own board of health or health department. These funds will decrease inequities between communities and promote better health for everyone.” (A “Yes” vote is for the $3 million increase in funding). Sen. Joseph Boncore Yes ADDITIONAL $508,419 FOR DOMESTIC VIOLENCE PREVENTION AND SURVIVOR SERVICES (S 3) Senate 39-0, approved an amendment increasing funding for Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Prevention and Survivor Services by $508,419 (from $50,874,714 to BEACON | SEE Page 19

Joseph Boncore Yes $500,000 TO IMPROVE MATERNAL AND NEWBORN HEALTH OUTCOMES (S 3) Senate 38-1, approved an amendment that would provide $500,000 for the Perinatal-Neonatal Quality Improvement Network (PNQIN) of Massachusetts that works with hospitals and maternal health organizations to eliminate disparities in maternal morbidity and mortality. “I fi led [the] amendment … to provide funding to PNQIN because I believe that it is every person’s right to build a happy and healthy family in the commonwealth of Massachusetts,” said amendment sponsor Sen. Harriette Chandler (D-Worcester). “An essential element of PNQIN’s mission is to fi ght and eliminate long standing racial disparities in maternal mortality and to improve health outcomes of all pregnant people and their children. PNQIN is at the forefront of maternal health equity, and their work will unequivocally bring us closer to a commonwealth full of happy and healthy parents and children.” “I have a strong belief that the practice of earmarking funds for priAPPROVAL | FROM Page 1 the public using the community room and by fi refi ghters using the room for training exercises. “It is a priority of the city to create a new fi re station in this location,” said Revere Economic Development Director Robert O’Brien. “It has very signifi cant and timely public safety implications, and the petitions before [the ZBA] are perfectly apPage 19 vate organizations within the budget leads to more harm than good in our political system,” said Sen. Sonia Chang-Diaz, the only senator to vote against the amendment. “Although the PNQIN does important work, and I appreciate Sen. Chandler’s championing of this worthy cause, I believe government works better when the Legislature sticks to its role of setting categories of funding priorities, and I respect the executive branch agencies’ responsibility to make comparisons among projects and service providers to choose the organizations that best carry out those priorities. As such, I have a policy of voting against earmarks when it comes to setting budget priorities.” (A “Yes” vote is for the $500,000. A “No” vote is against it.) Sen. Joseph Boncore Yes ADDITIONAL $500,000 FOR SECURITY FOR SCHOOLS AND HOUSES OF WORSHIP (S 9) Senate 39-0, approved an amendment increasing funding by $500,000 (from $1 million to $1.5 million) for security and enhancements for at-risk houses of worship, schools, community centers and other nonprofit institutions. This includes the installation of security cameras, enhanced lighting, ballistic doors and bulletproof windows, rapid response alarms, perimeter fencing, motion detectors and vehicle blockades. “We are in the middle of a pandemic of hate and violence, and it’s growing at alarming rates,” said sponsor Sen. Eric Lesser (D-Longmeadow). This year alone, there was the attempted bombing at Ruth’s House, a Jewish-affiliated assisted living facility in Longmeadow, and in the months that followed, a rapid rise in Anti-Asian hate crimes. We have an obligation as a commonwealth to make sure that we have the resources to put propriate, and beyond that, they are completely necessary given the nature of the plot.” Ward 2 City Councillor Ira Novoselsky said the Point of Pines location is important for the safety of the city, given all the development and construction going on in the city, especially in and near the Pines. Ward 5 City Councillor John Powers has long been a proponent for the return of a fi re stathese basic precautions in place for these community groups and organizations.” (A “Yes” vote is for the $500,000). Sen. Joseph Boncore 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 May 24-28, the House met for a total of eight minutes while the Senate met for a total of 23 hours and 40 minutes. Mon.

Be sure to be very clear about schedules and leave extra time to resolve any issues. • Take your dress home: After your alterations are fi nished, promptly pick up your dress. You can’t control what happens at the store where you found a prom dress or wedding dress – it might even go out of business – so the safest place for your dress is at your home (or the place you will be dressing on the big day). • Want to rent? Do your homework: Renting a dress is an increasingly popular options for proms and other special events. Be sure to start early because popular styles and sizes will sell out. Also, check BBB. org before committing to a specifi c company. • Check BBB: Research dress shops on BBB.org before making a purchase.

Tomczyk ten hears that the dresses that arrive do not fi t well and are constructed from poor quality materials. If you’ve decided to buy a wedding dress or prom dress online, keep the following tips in mind: • Beware of counterfeit gowns: Authorized retailers are the only stores allowed to sell a designer’s gowns. Anyone else claiming to carry them is likely selling counterfeits. In fact, many dress designers do not sell their gowns online at all. • Shopping for a deal? Be realistic: As much as a budgetconscious bride or partygoer might want to fi nd a $5,000 dress for $350, it’s probably not going to happen. Many designers don’t allow their dresses to be discounted below a certain margin. In fact, an in-person sample sale, not online, may be a bride’s best bet for fi nding a discounted gown. • Double-check delivery promises: It’s vital that your dress arrives in time, so be sure the seller clearly states its typical delivery times. • Understand the return policy: Review the guarantee, return and refund policies before purchasing. Know if there is a way to return your dress (and how much it will cost) if you are not happy with it. Make sure there’s a way to contact the OBITUARIES were his own.
