(Advocate Photos by Tara Vocino) City Council considers new emergency system for schools By Alexis Mikulski T he City Council decided it will look into the possibility of utilizing IN FORCE911, a threat alert system, in Revere schools during last week’s city council meeting. According to a motion presented by Councillor-at-Large George Rotondo, this app will connect law enforcement directly with schools, in an effort to stop and decrease the number of school shootings. Currently the app system is being used in Worcester, Arlington and Medway, and is something Rotondo thinks would greatly benefi t the city 1 Week Class Aug. 19 CALL - ENROLL or Register Online 617-387-9121 HENRYSAUTOSCHOOL.COM AUTO SCHOOL E EVERETT A “Successful Key To Driving” Since 1938 Gift Certificates Available of Revere. “This is an app that our students and teachers can download, and assist the police with the location of a school shooter. We should get this app for our community,” he said. “The average time to get through to 911 during a call can be between one to three minutes. The average response time to an active school shooting is probably fi ve minutes. During an active shooting incident, one person is shot every 15 seconds.” According to its website, when someone uses the IN FORCE911 app, an alert is sent out to law enforcement and a dispatcher that they will receive in 12 seconds or less. The alert also notifi es every single member of the faculty and student body in the building, with detailed information. “This is something that is very possible and can save lives. I think it would work very, very well and suggest that anyone interested go on their phone and take a look on the app,” said Rotondo. Councillor-at-Large Dan Rizzo showed his full support for this motion. “This is an excellent motion; we should be exploring programs that are out there that can help us protect our students, faculty and our administrators,” he said. “So far in 2019, across the United States there have been 22 separate school shooting incidents. These are acts of violence against students who went to school that day and never expected anything bad to happen. It’s scary … I do believe we need to do everything we possibly can to give everyone in the schools, from the students to the police department, all of the tools to protect themselves,” said Rizzo. “This is something we need to absolutely look into as a community.” COUNCIL | SEE PAGE 4 Prices subject to change FLEET

Page 2 THE REVERE ADVOCATE - Friday, August 9, 2019 State Rep. Vincent sounds off about the recent Wheelabrator plant noise (Editor’s Note: The following is the statement that State Rep. RoseLee Vincent delivered to the Saugus Board of Health on Aug. 5 regarding recent citizen complaints regarding noise emanating from Wheelabrator Technologies, Inc.’s trash-to-energy incinerator on Route 107 in Saugus.) Thank you, honorable members of the Saugus Board of Health. My name is RoseLee Vincent. I am the State Representative for the Town of Saugus and the City of Revere. Before I begin my remarks, I want to take this opportunity to thank the Saugus Board of Health for standing up to this environmental bully by hosting tonight’s meeting. I also want to express my deep appreciation to you for allowing members of the Alliance for Health and Environment, and neighborhood representatives to address your Board this evening. I am here to voice my deepest concern over the safety, health and environmental impact that the oldest incinerator in the country (circa 1975) has on the people I represent in Saugus and Revere. The recent and unprecedented noise assault on our neighborhoods that lasted for well over 6 weeks is unconscionable. It is a very real signal that there is something very wrong with this nearly 50 year old incinerator. Although the 24/7 noise has somewhat abated, it’s still occurring, and is a clear indication that this incinerator does not, and will NEVER meet the same standards that are afforded to people who live in other communities across the Commonwealth.

It should be noted that since November, 2016 our neighbors who live in the shadow of the Wheelabrator have had to endure these types of noise occurrences at all hours of the day and night no less than SEVEN times due to issues at the plant, again demonstrating that perhaps this dinosaur of facility should be reaching the point of extinction. However, noise is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to Wheelabrator Saugus. Put aside, for just a moment that the Wheelabrator Saugus inof the existing boilers and furnaces” (as stated in their September, 2018 Emission Control Plan to the MassDEP). Put all the environmental concerns aside for just a moment. Put simply, the issue of noise READY TO TESTIFY: State Rep. RoseLee Vincent heads into Saugus Town Hall on Monday night (Aug. 5) to address the Saugus Board of Health at a show cause public hearing for Wheelabrator Technologies Inc. to explain recent noise issues at its trash-to-energy incinerator on Route 107 in Saugus.

Put aside the fact that according to the DEP, the Saugus ash landfi ll is the only unlined landfi ll still in use in the Commonwealth. Put aside, for just a second, that the DEP has approved a plan that will extend the life of the landfi ll for another fi ve to ten years without requesting an Environmental Impact Report, even though that very landfi ll was supposed to close in 1996. Put aside that there is currently an application before the DEP which would allow Wheelabrator to skirt emissions standards because the facility could not meet the current 21st century standards without “major modifi cations that we are talking about tonight shows that this is a real quality of life and health issue in addition to an environmental one. What the people in Saugus and Revere have been dealing with on a regular basis demonstrates clearly that this facility has outlived its usefulness. Wheelabrator Saugus is not a state-of-the-art incinerator – it cannot be retrofi tted to give our constituency in Saugus and Revere the protections they deserve. As I alluded to, the fact that Wheelabrator is arguing to MassDEP that they cannot meet new emissions monitoring standards without major modifi cations of the existing boilers and furnaces is alarming. This is another example of Saugus residents not having the same protections as the rest of the Commonwealth. The people we represent are calling on you, the Board of Health, to fi nally hold Wheelabrator accountable for their actions. This honorable body has the power to insist that the people in Saugus, Revere and beyond have a safe and healthy environment. By requiring Wheelabrator to come before you for a Site Assignment that is long overdue is a start to hold Wheelabrator accountable for their actions. Sadly, it does not appear the State and the Courts are going to help us protect our friends and neighbors. At this point, all of us are looking to the Town of Saugus and the Board of Health specifi cally, to take action. Please, honorable members, use your legal authority to hold Wheelabrator accountable. We are counting on you … we need you. Thank you.

(Advocate Photos by Tara Vocino) By Tara Vocino B ryant Street resident Nancy DiGaetano embraced former U.S. Congressman Joseph P. Kennedy II, who is now chairman/president of the Citizens Energy Corporation, when she recently became the fi rst subscriber to JOE-4-SUN, a low-income community shared solar energy program. DiGaetano will benefi t from solar energy without having to install rooftop solar panels. “I’m so excited and privileged to be able to partake in cleaner air and water to benefi t our future – that is our children,” DiGaetano said, adding Citizens Energy Chairman Joseph Kennedy said climate change will kill humans and animals if people don’t take charge of the future. that her electric bill is now 25 percent lower. “It was installed three weeks ago and I’ve already started saving $150 per year.” Kennedy was joined by Speaker of the House Robert DeLeo, who guided the creation of the state’s low-income community shared solar access initiative through the legislature. “Citizens Energy, of Boston, is the leader in the nation when it comes to clean energy,” DeLeo said. “I hope to pass a climate resiliency program and sign it into law.” Kennedy lauded DeLeo for paying attention to the facts and the science of climate change. “He’s kept Massachusetts in line,” Kennedy said. “Half of the counof fi ve, and the other 3,500 lowincome households across the state will receive a guaranteed savings of approximately $150 per year. New solar arrays are slated to be built in Ayer, Springfi eld and Spencer. To be eligible for JOE-4-SUN, subscribers must also be National Grid customers. Mayor Brian Arrigo said the city will be purchasing half the power from two of Citizen’s Energy’s ground-mounted, utility scale solar arrays. He said the city is proud to continue its partnership with Citizens Energy in an eff ort to assist low-income households. “Few programs can provide such multifaceted advantages to the public good,” Arrigo said. “The city of Revere has already benefi ted from our partnership with Citizens Energy under a previous solar contract that will save us some $4 million in electricity expenses over the life of the project.” For additional information, visit citizensenergy.com/Joe4Sun, call 855-563-4786 or email JOE4SUN@citizensenergy.com. at printjournalist1@gmail.com.

Don’t you think it’s ironic that when we beg for silence, all we get is more noise? But when we beg for answers, all we get is silence? This has to stop,” she declared. LaCentra, who has lived in Revere for 35 years, questioned why residents who live near the plant should “have to worry about how long these noise assaults should last.” “Perhaps Wheelabrator should be giving out earplugs with their logo on them because that would be money well spent,” she said. Another Revere resident, Elle Baker, said she is among 600 Revere residents who live within a half mile of the Wheelabrator plant – “close enough to hear the noise.” “There are no town lines separating Revere and Saugus from the noise that we hear from the facility,” she said. Baker, who grew up in East Saugus and has lived in Revere for several years, urged the Saugus Board of Health to think about protecting many Revere and Saugus residents who have endured “many sleepless nights” over the past two months. “The community came here to support you and empower you – the Saugus Board of Health – to have the strength and the conviction to make the diffi cult decision to choose to protect us from the wolf in sheep’s clothing … to hear the voices of the actual good neighbors: the ones that worry about the dangers of the Wheelabrator wolf,” Baker said. “You have volunteered to represent us, just as you do the rest of the community, from other establishments that you hold accountable for public health. And we ask that you do the same – by holding Wheelabrator accountable for public health, not limited to the Town of Saugus, but also the surrounding communities,” she said. “We live here and we have a right to clean air, clean water and to live without excessive noise.” Noise complaints go back to 2016. State Rep. RoseLee Vincent (D-16th Suff olk District) also was among the dozen citizens who were allowed to testify. The board limited the number of witnesses, claiming it was not practical to allow everyone in the audience to speak during the public hearing. “The recent and unprecedented noise assault on our neighborhoods that lasted for well over six weeks is unconscionable,” said Vincent, whose House district also includes Precincts 3 and 10 in Saugus. “It is a very real signal that there is something very wrong with this nearly 50-year-old incinerator.

I think it is something we defi nitely should explore.”

THE REVERE ADVOCATE - Friday, August 9, 2019 Page 5 Wheelabrator apologizes for the noise, but insists it kept the state and Board of Health informed of its response to problems By Mark E. Vogler A top Wheelabrator Technologies offi cial told the Saugus Board of Health the company regrets disrupting the lives of residents living near its trash-to-energy plant during a fi ve-week period in June and July. “We understand that noises from an industrial operation can be bothersome and we want to start by saying directly that we are sorry if the recent turbine outage disturbed members of the community,” Wheelabrator Technologies’ Vice President of Environmental Health & Safety Jim Connolly said during Monday’s show cause hearing. “Our goal is to be a good neighbor and if we failed to do that we want to do better and we commit to you that we will,” Connolly said. “Obviously, in the recent outage, which was unexpectedly extended, there were concerns raised about the noise and we did not meet our community’s expectations. Again, we are sorry that happened and we commit to do better,” he said. Connolly provided the Board of Health with a detailed explanation of how the plant’s operation during the turbine refurnishment contributed to the plant’s noise problems -- as did several measures intended to silence the noise. But Connolly also rebutted criticism that Wheelabrator had not done enough to keep the state Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) and the Board of Health informed throughout the period. He provided a log of communication between Wheelabrator and the DEP and the Health Board during the period of June 10 through July 12. “Wheelabrator did keep the BOH and the DEP informed in advance of and throughout the event, through the Chairman of the BOH and through the appointed contacts at the DEP,” Connolly said. “We had multiple contacts with the BOH and we were in regular, almost daily communication with the DEP,” he said. “In addition, there were several calls from our community relations liaison to the Chairperson of the Saugus Board of Selectmen. We felt that through these communications we were keeping both the BOH and DEP informed of our progress,” he said. While addressing the board, Connolly also noted: The steam turbine is taken down for service about every fi ve years “and the full scope of service cannot be anticipated until the turbine is opened up and inspected.” When Wheelabrator became aware of the concerns being raised in the community about noise the noise being generated, the company took “immediate steps to mitigate the noise by fi nding an alternate/enhanced silencer,” which was obtained from Texas and shipped to Saugus. Once the silencer was turned on and put in use, Wheelabrator determined “the sound reduction was not suffi cient to address the community concerns we were hearing and we therefore took one of our two boilers off -line to reduce the amount of steam we were producing. The single boiler operated with minimal sound impacts until the steam turbine was returned to service and we no longer needed to vent steam, and normal facility operations resumed.” Wheelabrator continues to investigate improved solutions to the concerns raised about the noise. The company is exploring additional steps it can take in the future to minimize noise issues when there is a need to take the turbine off -line for an extended period. “We would also be happy to discuss with the Board a communications protocol that we would use if there is a need to vent steam over any prolonged period,” Connolly said. “If there is a better way to communicate, we are happy to discuss it,” he said. “We apologize to any who were inconvenienced by sound during the period when both boilers were running. As I stated at the outset, our goal is to be a good community member and given the concerns that were raised, we want to do better,” he said.

Mayor Brian Arrigo and Offi ce of Veteran’s Services Director Mark Silvestri, along with State Rep. RoseLee Vincent and City Councilors John Powers and Anthony Zambuto, are shown outside City Hall with local veterans during Wednesday’s dedication ceremony. M ayor Brian M. Arrigo and Revere’s Veterans Service Offi ce observed National Purple Heart Day with a ceremony designating a pair of parking spaces at Revere City Hall reserved exclusively for military veterans and Purple Heart recipients. National Purple Heart Day is observed on August 7 of each year as a time to honor military members who were wounded or lost their lives on the battlefi eld while in service to the United States. The Purple Heart Medal was created on August 7, 1782, by then Commander-in-Chief of the Continental Army George Washington. Originally known as the Badge of Military Merit, it is estimated that some 1.8 million Purple Hearts have been awarded. Qualifi cations for the Medal now include acts of bravery and valor as prisoners of war and while fi ghting domestic terror. The City Council in April approved the designation of parking spaces reserved for veterans as a sign of respect and appreciation for service to the nation. The two spaces are brightly visible, with the Purple Heart space featuring the familiar heart-shaped purple medal, gold border and the profi le of George Washington. The veterans’ space features a blue star on a white fi eld surrounded by a red border. The work was completed by Maxwell Hill, a Lynn street artist. Mayor Arrigo commended the City Council’s action that recognized veterans. “We are privileged that men and women across this country enlist in the military to protect our freedoms, and we owe them a continuing debt after they come home,” he said. “Finding a convenient parking space is one of life’s simple pleasures, and we are glad to provide that for our veterans.” City observes National Purple Heart Day Designates two parking spaces reserved for vets

THE REVERE ADVOCATE - Friday, August 9, 2019 Page 7 Annual Row Row Row to Revere will support sensory walkways at Whelan, run SEPAC events, pay for swimming lessons By Tara Vocino T he Third Annual Row Row Row in Revere will take place on Saturday, Aug. 17 to benefi t Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). ASD is a developmental disorder that affects communication and behavior across multiple spectrums. “Everyone knows someone aff ected by ASD, and there are so many nontraditional therapies that insurance doesn’t cover, such as horseback riding and swimming,” Row Row Row in Revere Coordinator Stacey Livote said on Monday at The Marina Restaurant & Bar at The Wharf. “So, we organize this event to help families with their monetary expenses.” This year’s funds raised will help support building two interactive sensory walks at the A.C. Whelan Elementary School this fall. Last year, the $25,000 raised built a sensory integration gym at the Beachmont Elementary School. “The sensory pathways promote movement activities for students, such as jumping, bouncing, breathing and bending, providing students with proprioceptive sensory input and help with selfregulation, in an appropriate and academically based way,” A.C. Whelan Elementary School Principal Jamie Flynn said Tuesday afternoon. “Erin DeMaura and our ASD teaching team (Kelsey Drapeau, Taylor Card, Katelyn Ferrari and Michael Walpole) collaborated together to submit the grant proposal to Row Row Row.” Costing $3,000, one pathway will be located on the third memorative oars will be given in nine age divisions, Bolognese continued. Entertainment will be provided by Vinyl Groove, who performs dance music, and singer/songwriter Billy Pezzulo. Sign-ups are available at the restaurant or by emailing Stacey_TheMarina@Yahoo.com until the day of the race. Boaters must be 18 or older. “It’s a great cause to help out SAFETY FIRST: Shown from left to right are Safety boaters David and Ellen Bolognese, Row Row Row Coordinator Stacey Livote, Asst.

Revere Public Schools staff and volunteers will install the pathways, which will be used by all students. Originally penned Row Row Row to Revere to benefi t spina bifi da, a birth defect that may interfere with walking, the event has, for the past two years, benefi tted ASD. Besides ASD, funds raised support the Special Education Parent Advisory Council (SEPAC) activities, according to Livote. SEPAC President Jennifer Duggan said Tuesday afternoon that funds raised have benefitted their Easter, Halloween, Christmas and Valentines parties, Autism Walk, ice skating and music therapy. Safety boater David Bolognese, whose cruiser boat, Ellie Mae, will be anchored into the river on standby, said Monday that the tradition was established, and they decided to make great use of the resources that they have with the marina in Revere. The Row Row Row to Revere originally began from Nahant into Revere via the Atlantic Ocean, according to Bolognese. This year, the route will run from the Point of Pines Yacht Club to the North Shore Marina located adjacent to the restaurant, then back to the Point of Pines Yacht Club, a one-mile route. Both locations are hosting this year’s event, and Livote predicts that it’ll be “bigger and better” than in previous years. He outlined the safety plan: an ambulance on land and Jet Ski on water will provide support. However, neither has been needed over the course of the event, according to Bolognese. Boaters will sail in low tide, up to 12 feet of water.

Guinasso, Public Safety Subcommittee Chair Councilor Ira Novoselsky, and Police Chief James Guido have issued the following joint statement to address rumors and misstatements that have spread through the city, primarily on social media, regarding police activity in recent days: A sequence of unrelated events in Revere this past weekend, coupled with an onslaught of inaccurate information about them primarily on social media, spawned unfounded fear in our community. We issue this joint statement to dispel rumors, to apprise the public of the actual circumstances that transpired, and to assure the residents of Revere of our unwavering commitment to public safety. 1. The Incidents: Four incidents, at least three of them involving a fi rearm, resulted in police response. Two incidents attracted news media attention, as well as unfi ltered chatter on social media. - Thursday night, Revere police reacted to a radio broadcast from Malden Police relating to a shooting incident that took place in Malden. Based on the details contained in the police radio broadcast, Revere Police found and identifi ed the suspect vehicle and several arrests were made. No gunfi re or criminal activity occurred in Revere. - Early Friday morning, Revere police investigated a possible gunshot injury to the foot of a man on Mountain Avenue. The police investigation is ongoing and thus far has produced no conclusions about matter. - Friday at approximately 5:15 p.m., a 34-year old man from outside of Massachusetts was shot while driving in afternoon rush hour traffi c on Route 1A southbound (North Shore Road) near Shawmut Street. State police and news media helicopters hovered over the area in the shooting’s aftermath. Police closed part of North Shore Road and Revere Street, which resulted in unusual traffi c jams in the area. Early investigation indicates that the gunfi re came from another vehicle. State and Revere police are continuing their investigation. - Sunday morning at approximately 12:30 a.m., Everett police were involved in a chase that began in Everett and continued into Revere onto Washington Avenue. The chase culminated when an Everett police offi cer allegedly shot the suspect, a 34-year old Lynn man who later died from his injuries. The incident involved no Revere police and the investigation into the matter is led by the Suff olk County District Attorney’s offi ce. 2. Observations and our Commitment to Public Safety - Only one of these events actually involved a criminal act in the City of Revere. That act involved at least one nonMassachusetts individual who was travelling in an automobile on a state highway that passes through Revere for approximately three of its 95mile length. - Two matters originated in neighboring cities, one culminating in Revere thanks to good police work by Revere officers and one culminating in Revere on the action of an Everett police offi cer. Neither involved a criminal act in this City. - Overall crime statistics in Revere have followed a downward trend in recent years. In regard to gang and youth violence, Revere police have implemented dynamic programs such as the Revere Police Youth Academy, the Police Activities League, and have assigned offi cers specifi cally to social intervention, community engagement, and crime suppression supported by the Charles E. Shannon Community Safety Initiative grants that are funded by the State Executive Offi ce of Public Safety. - Staffi ng levels at the Revere Police Department are at their highest in years, currently at 105 with two more designated to begin training at the Police Academy in the near future and will increase our number to 107. - While communities across the country confront the proliferation of illegal guns, and opioid abuse fuels criminal activity, Revere has been in the forefront of affi rmative steps to prevent crime rather than react to it. The Police Department works continuously with the School Department and Revere’s Offi ce of Substance Abuse Disorder Initiatives to identify potential problems, isolate trouble spots, and foster productive interaction to assist those in need while protecting the public good. Make no mistake; any type of criminal activity is a cause for concern. But it is irresponsible to heighten those concerns with incomplete, inaccurate, and incendiary commentary on social media. When we do so, our community suff ers. It is especially incumbent on those of us in public life and who hold offi cial offi ce in the City of Revere to be conscious of the consequences of our remarks. It is incumbent on us to refrain from hasty, provocative, and unfounded conclusions, lest we mislead and agitate the very people we are sworn to serve. Tragic events in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio made people especially anxious this weekend. It is regrettable that one unpreventable criminal act in our City was magnifi ed into a crime wave that quite simply does not exist today in the City of Revere. We have full confidence in the capable men and women of the Revere Police Department who are vigilant and committed to protecting and serving the City.

THE REVERE ADVOCATE - Friday, August 9, 2019 Page 9 Rep. Vincent recognizes State House Intern Andrew D’Ambrosio BOSTON – State Representative RoseLee Vincent, a Democrat representing the 16th Suff olk District, recently recognized Andrew D’Ambrosio at the Massachusetts State House for his commitment and hard work as an intern in her Beacon Hill offi ce this summer. “My offi ce was very fortunate to have Andrew as an intern this summer because he is a very passionate and driven individual,” said Representative Vincent. “He was diligent in his work to serve all of the residents in the 16th Suffolk District. I wish him the best of luck in his fi rst year at BC, and in all of his future endeavors! Andrew is an intelligent young man with a bright future ahead of him.” D’Ambrosio recently graduated from Milton Academy and will be attending Boston College in the fall. At Milton, he served as the Editor-inChief of The Milton Measure, the school’s official newspaper. Along with his duties as head editor, he served as Everett’s Unique Steak House Bikers Against Child Abuse to host Touch-a-Truck event O n Saturday, Aug. 10, Bikers Against Child Abuse (B.A.C.A.) of Northern Massachusetts and Boston Harley-Davidson will hold a Touch-a-Truck event. This event is absolutely free and is open to all families and kids in the area. There will be plenty of big trucks for the children to see up close. B.A.C.A. members will help kids sit on their motorcycles and learn about them in a fun, safe environment. Additionally, the event will include a bouncy house, a dunk tank where the children can try to dunk a biker, and many food trucks selling food and beverages. The Touch-a-Truck event will be held at Boston Harley-Davidson at 649 Squire Rd. in Revere from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. About Bikers Against Child Abuse B.A.C.A. is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization of motorcyclists who volunteer their time to children who have been abused. Members spend time with those children to help empower them not to be afraid of the world in which they live. When a child feels threatened or at risk, the child can call a B.A.C.A. member who has been assigned to the child as a primary contact, and the biker will ride out to the child’s house – at any hour of the day or night – to make sure the child feels safe. B.A.C.A. members also escort children to court when they have to testify against an abuser, to make sure that the child never feels unsafe or alone during the trial process.

So many countries do not have these freedoms so you cannot take it for granted. Q: What are any future plans or goals you would like to achieve? A: Revere is truly in the midst of a transformation that has some cons, but the pros far outweigh the negatives. Change is hard for some to embrace but it’s the only constant in life. We must adapt and grow; otherwise we are dying. My goals are to help continue to move Revere in the right direction. I just want to do my small part. Q: Why did you want to become a city councillor? A: I felt Revere's representation needed some new voices, I didn’t always feel my voice or my neighbor’s were being heard. I am always willing to assist with actually getting things done. At times I didn’t always feel that was the case, so I jumped in to work on a solution rather than stand on the sidelines and watch. Q: What is the best way for the public to contact you? A: Email. I work a lot as most young parents do, so at times if I am in a meeting I cannot answer the phone, but an email can be responded to almost immediately. It also helps me keep track of what I need to get done. However, picking up the phone is easy, too. Lastly I am always around Revere. My wife and I are heavily involved in many organizations throughout the city so even on our spare time we can typically be found at one of our local parks or fi elds.

Geared toward children, they had a chance to meet their “friends,” including state and local police, fi re and sheriff’s department personnel, who introduced them to their equipment, including fire trucks, cars and protective gear, and taught them that, while strangers, they’re present in need.

THE REVERE ADVOCATE - Friday, August 9, 2019 Page 13 ~ Yawkey League Baseball ~ Rockies clinch Yaz Division, set sights on playoffs By Greg Phipps acing one of the squads that managed to beat them this season; the Revere Rockies took care of business by sweeping a twin bill from the AI Thomas Athletics in Yawkey League play last Saturday at Revere High School. Revere’s fi rst-game 15-5 romp over the A’s clinched this year’s Carl Yastrzemski Division title. The Rockies went on to capF ture a 4-0 win in game two, and followed that up with a 6-2 home victory on Sunday over the Stoneham Sabers, who led the Ted Williams Division as of early this week. Revere, which sported a 26-2 record after Sunday’s win, played its fi nal three games of the regular season this week, as it gears up for the postseason. Game one on Saturday got off to a shaky beginning, as the visiting A’s, who had defeated Revere about a week earlier, built a 4-2 lead off the strength of a three-run third inning against Rockies starter Jon Shepard. An Alex Wong homer helped tie the game in the fourth, and then the home team exploded for 11 runs combined in the fi fth and sixth frames to race away with the game. Ryan Petrone and Kenny Polanco also blasted roundtrippers. Petrone drove in fi ve runs and Wong fi nished with three RBI. Wong, Petrone and Mike Lembo each had three knocks among the 18 total hits the Rockies managed in the contest. On the defensive side, Shepard was able to fi nd his rhythm on the mound and held the A’s to just one run over the last three innings. He did not strike out a batter, but his control was good (just one walk) as he improved to 8-0 on the season. Scoring three times in their fi rst at bat in the second contest, the Rockies produced all the runs they would need in an eventual 4-0 win. Starter Oliver Collette surrendered one hit in his fi ve innings of work, and Gehrig Schilling hurled two frames of scoreless, one-hit ball in relief. Collette earned his second win of the season. The two combined for seven strikeouts. The off ense was held to just six hits but Revere made the most of its chances. Wong doubled and drove in two runs while Bobby Foote also brought in a run with a hit. Revere got off to a fast start against the Sabers on Sunday, tallying single runs over the first three frames for an early 3-0 lead. The Rockies would add three more in the fifth. Petrone launched another long ball and Tony Iafolla drove in two. Jacob Byrne and Adam Del Rio added two hits each as well. Starter Kevin Sinatra (fi ve hits, two walks, two strikeouts) went the distance to notch his third win of the season against one defeat. Looking ahead to the playoffs, the Rockies are determined to make up for their runner-up league performance last season, when they lost the championship series to the Brighton Braves in seven games. Revere shortstop Ryan Petrone is the recipient of this hard slide by an Al Thomas Athletics baserunner during a force-out play in last Saturday’s doubleheader opener at Revere High School.

NO VETOES OF FUNDING IN $43.3 BILLION STATE BUDGET – In an unusual move, Gov. Charlie Baker signed the fi scal 2020 state budget into law without vetoing any of the $43.3 billion in spending approved by the House and Senate. Beacon Hill Roll Call talked to several Statehouse veterans and not one could remember any other time in the last four decades that the governor did not veto funding in the budget. Just last year, Baker vetoed $48.9 million from a $41.7 billion budget. “The lieutenant governor and I and the secretary [of Administration and Finance] and a lot of our team spent a lot of time talking about the line item stuff , and basically came to the conclusion that this budget is balanced,” said Baker at the signing ceremony last week. “We’re obviously going to pay a lot of attention to what happens to revenues in the fi rst two quarters of the year, because we did have a lot of volatility in the revenue base for 2019. So we’re going to work pretty hard to pay attention not just to the revenue side but also the spending side going forward.” “Only a besieged governor embroiled in so many distractions, could not fi nd a single cent of wasteful spending that needed his veto in a bloated $43.3 billion budget, an increase of almost $2 billion over last year’s spending,” said Chip Ford, executive director of Citizens for Limited Taxation. “With a fiscal year 2019 ‘revenue surplus’ (overtaxation) bonanza of $2 billion to squander, Charlie Baker, who needs to be loved at any cost, had to keep all his friends in the Legislature happy with him — fat, happy, and satiated.” Baker did veto six items in the budget, including a section that included the state’s meals tax among the items exempt from the state’s 6.25 sales tax during the sales tax holiday weekend set for Aug. 17 and 18. On those two days, consumers can buy most products that cost under $2,500 without paying the state’s 6.25 percent sales tax. The Revenue Department ruled a few weeks ago that for the fi rst time, meals would be exempt from the sales tax that weekend. The department also ruled that alcohol would not be exempt. This created a problem for restaurants because restaurants don’t separate food and alcohol when diners are given their tab. The establishment taxes both and does not have a system to separate the two. There was agreement among the governor, the legislative leadership and the Massachusetts Restaurant Association that the best solution was to follow what was done at all other sales tax holidays and not exempt meals from the sales tax. “Something needed to be done,” said Bob Luz, the CEO of the Massachusetts Restaurant Association. “We thank Gov. Baker and the Legislature for coming to a resolution. “Many restaurant systems are not equipped to handle both taxable and non-taxable items on the same transaction and there was much confusion in the function business,” continued Luz. “Restaurant owners would have had to produce two separate checks to customers, one with nontaxed food items and the other will taxable alcohol purchases, creating confusion for owners, employees and the general public. The burden far outweighed any potential benefi ts.” ALLOW UNIONS TO CHARGE NON-UNION MEMBERS FOR SOME COSTS (H 3854) House 156-1 approved (Senate approved on a voice vote without a roll call) and sent to Gov. Baker a bill that would allow unions to charge nonmembers for the cost of some services and representation. The bill was fi led as a response to a 2018 U.S. Supreme Court ruling in the Janus v. American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees case that public employees cannot be forced to pay fees or dues to a union to which he or she does not belong.Freedom of speech advocates hailed the decision while labor advocates said it was an unjust attack on union. After the House and Senate approved the bill in early July and sent it to Gov. Baker, the governor proposed several amendments that he said would protect the privacy rights of public employees and correct statutory inconsistencies. Both branches rejected the amendments. “Today the Massachusetts House of Representatives stood up for workers,” said Massachusetts AFL-CIO President Steven Tolman when the House fi rst approved the bill. “They stood up for workers and against the right-wing special interests that forced their anti-union views across the country through the misguided and political Janus Supreme Court ruling.” “Unfortunately, what we saw during the Janus ‘fi x’ debate was just another instance of House and Senate leadership not playing well with others,” said Paul Craney, spokesman for the Massachusetts Fiscal Alliance. “Rather than considering the governor’s suggestions, lawmakers rammed through rejections of the proposals on an almost party line. If signed into law, state workers’ privacy will be violated by union bosses who can access their personal contact information without their consent.” (A “Yes” vote is for the bill. A “No” vote is against it.) Rep. Bob DeLeo Yes Rep. RoseLee Vincent Yes IMPROVE CHILDREN’S HEALTH (H 4012) House 152-0, approved and sent to the Senate a bill designed to make it easier for children and their families to navigate the state’s complicated and often difficult to understand health-care system. A key provision requires health insurance companies to perform monthly updates of their provider databases that tell patients which doctors and other medical resources are available to them. Patients complain that many physicians are listed as local and taking new patients despite having retired, moved or stopped accepting new patients. The measure ensures that foster children are able to remain covered by MassHealth until they turn 26, the same option that children covered by their parents’ private insurance currently have. It also creates a Health Policy Commission analysis of children under age 21 with medical complexities, their insurance and availability of care. “I am proud of the House’s leadership and steadfast commitment to caring for our most vulnerable children,” said Judiciary Committee Chair Rep. Claire Cronin (D-Easton). “This bill will assess the healthcare and wellness needs of children in the commonwealth and expand access to services for these children and their families. This is a step forward to ensuring that all of our children have equal access to quality healthcare.” “Nothing is more heartbreaking than talking to a constituent whose child is in crisis, but they’re having diffi culty fi nding healthcare services in the complex system of providers, insurers and resources,” said Health Care Financing Chair, Rep. Jennifer Benson (D-Lunenburg). “By identifying and addressing these diffi culties in this legislation, we are working to ensure that every child in the commonwealth will be able to access high-quality services quickly and effi ciently.” “This bill makes important reforms to increase access to healthcare, supports further study of issues critical to children’s behavioral health and takes an important look at improving the state’s foster care system,” said Rep. Marjorie Decker (DCambridge). “It will strengthen and expand access to care for children both by collecting data, as well as assessing current methods in the pursuit of providing the kind of behavioral health care children need.” (A “Yes” vote is for the bill.) Rep. Bob DeLeo Yes Rep. RoseLee Vincent Yes MEET BEYOND 9 P.M. House 125-31, approved a motion to allow the House session to continue beyond 9 p.m. Under House rules, the House cannot meet after 9 p.m. unless the rule is suspended. Supporters of rule suspension said that the House has business to fi nish and should stay in session to work on it. Opponents of rule suspension said it is irresponsible for the House to debate and vote late at night when taxpayers are asleep. (A “Yes” vote is for meeting beyond 9 p.m. A “No” vote is against it.) Rep. Bob DeLeo Yes Rep. RoseLee Vincent 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 July 29-August 2, the House met for a total of seven hours and 25 minutes while the Senate met for a total of eight hours and 21 minutes. Mon. July 29 House 11:02 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. Senate 11:04 a.m. to 4:59 p.m. Tues. July 30 House 11:01 a.m. to 11:06 a.m. No Senate session Wed.

THE REVERE ADVOCATE - Friday, August 9, 2019 Page 15 RBC recognizes Friendly Garden Co-Op Apartments M ost people think that individual homes are the only ones eligible for the “Beautiful Home” award given by the Revere Beautifi cation Committee (RBC). This is untrue as evidenced by the recipient of this month’s award. RBC recently selected the Friendly Garden complex on Revere Street as a recipient of this honor. As in many instances around the city, there is not a large amount of land available for planting at this site. The Friendly Garden residents didn’t let that stop them. They took things into their hands and landscaped their property, creating a lovely eff ect. As one drives into the property, the driveway is full of color on both sides. On the left side of the drive there are plantings chock-full of red, white and purple fl owers. Some are around trees while others border the rounded edges of the grass, creating a lively impression. This eff ect is duplicated on the right side of the driveway. The multicolor petunias and begonias fl ank the entrance to the building. This eff ect is continued down the drive to the Revere Street entrance and around the building along Revere Street. Added to the petunias and begonias are hostas, evergreen bushes, rose bushes and sedum. All available space is fi lled with lovely color! In addition, there are two decorative benches on the sidewalk into the building, creating a welcoming eff ect. The original work was done by Mike’s Landscaping of Malden, but the daily work is being done by a group of the complex’s residents. Friendly Garden residents Stacy Ventola and Maryann Irwin perform the daily work to keep the property looking so lovely, and George Salerno helps with all of the holiday decorations. This team eff ort has produced a beautiful product. This is truly a labor of love for the Friendly Garden team as evidenced by their statement that “We have a passion for working on the landscaping. It’s very rewarding when members comment on how beautiful the grounds look each season. Some of the members who are unable to leave their apartment tell us that they smile when they look out their window and see all the beautiful fl owers.” RBC congratulates the members of the Friendly Garden team and encourages other apartment/condominium complexes to emulate them by beautifying their property. Revere resident competes in Empire Dance Championship lbert Nicholls of Revere competed in the Empire Dance Championship, which was held from Aug. 1-3 at the New York Marriott Marquis in Times Square. With his instructor, Saori DeSouza of the Dancesport Academy of New England, as his partner, Nicholls entered 12 dance heats in the beginner, intermediate and full silver categories in the 61-63-yearold level. Nicholls also entered the 3-Dance Challenge. He placed first dancing the cha -cha, mambo and rumba. Nicholls said he appreciates DeSouza’s eff orts in helping him improve his ballroom dancing. Revere resident Albert Nicholls competed in the Empire Dance Championship in New York City earlier this month and won fi rst place in the 3-Dance Challenge.

Page 16 THE REVERE ADVOCATE - Friday, August 9, 2019 Tickets on sale for second by Jim Miller How Medicare Covers Ambulance Services Dear Savvy Senior, How does Medicare cover ambulance services? About three months ago, I took an ambulance to the hospital emergency room because I rarely drive anymore, and I just received a $1,100 bill from the ambulance company. Surprised Senior Dear Surprised, This is a Medicare issue that confuses many seniors. Yes, Medicare does covers emergency ambulance services and, in limited cases, non-emergency ambulance services too, but only when they’re deemed medically necessary and reasonable. So, what does that means? First, it means that your medical condition must be serious enough that you need an ambulance to transport you safely to a hospital or other facility where you receive care that Medicare covers. If a car or taxi could transport you without endangering your health, Medicare won’t pay. For example, Medicare probably won’t pay for an ambulance to take someone with a simple arm fracture to a hospital. But if he or she goes into shock, or is prone to internal bleeding, ambulance transport may be medically necessary to ensure the patient’s safety on the way. The details make a diff erence. Second, the ambulance must take you to the nearest appropriate facility, meaning the closest hospital, critical access hospital, skilled nursing facility or dialysis facility generally equipped to provide the services your illness or injury requires. It also means that the facility must have a physician or physician specialist available to treat your condition. Thus, Medicare may pay for an ambulance to take you to a more distant hospital if, for example, you are seriously burned, and the nearest hospital doesn’t have burn unit. Similarly, if you live in a rural area where the nearest hospital equipped to treat you is a two-hour drive away, Medicare will pay. But if you want an ambulance to take you to a more distant hospital because the doctor you prefer has staff privileges there, expect to pay a greater share of the bill. Medicare will cover the cost of ambulance transport to the nearest appropriate facility and no more. Non-Emergency Situations In limited cases, Medicare will also cover non-emergency ambulance services if such transportation is needed to treat or diagnose your health condition and the use of any other transportation method could endanger your health. Not having another means of transportation is not suffi cient for Medicare to pay for services. Some examples here are if you need transportation to get dialysis or if you are staying in a skilled nursing facility and require medical care. In these cases, a doctor’s order may be required to prove that use of an ambulance is medically necessary. Ambulance Costs The cost for ambulance services can vary from several hundred to several thousand dollars depending on where you live and how far you’re transported. Under original Medicare, Part B pays 80 percent of the Medicare-approved amounts for ambulance rides. You, or your Medicare supplemental policy (if you have one), will need to pay the remaining 20 percent. If you have a Medicare Advantage Plan, it must cover the same services as original Medicare, and may off er some additional transportation services. You’ll need to check with your plan for details. How to Appeal If an ambulance company bills you for services after Medicare denies payment, but you think the ride was medically necessary, you can appeal (see Medicare.gov/claims-appeals). Often, a lack of information about a person’s condition or need for services leads to denials. If you need some help contact your State Health Insurance Assistance Program (SHIP), which has counselors that can help you fi le an appeal for free. To locate your local SHIP, visit ShiptaCenter.org or call 877-839-2675. For more information on this topic, call Medicare at 800-633-4227 and ask them to mail you a copy of the “Medicare Coverage of Ambulance Services” booklet, or you can see it online at Medicare.gov/Pubs/pdf/11021-MedicareCoverage-of-Ambulance-Services.pdf. Send your senior questions to: Savvy Senior, P.O. Box 5443, Norman, OK 73070, or visit SavvySenior.org. Jim Miller is a contributor to the NBC Today show and author of “The Savvy Senior” book.
