CELEBRATING 30 YEARS AS REVERE’S LOCAL NEWSPAPER! Vol.30, No.39 -FREEwww.advocatenews.net Free Every Friday Council fired up over Quality Inn plans By Adam Swift L ast Monday night was an opportunity for the City Council and residents to stand together against a controversial plan by Boston offi cials to transform the Quality Inn on Morris Street into a transitional homeless shelter. The issue exploded last week, when Mayor Brian Arrigo got wind of the plan from the Boston Public Health Commission (BPHC) to address the longstanding, myriad homelessness and substance abuse problems at Massachusetts Avenue and Melnea Cass Boulevard by shuttling homeless people to the closed motel along Route 1. At Monday night’s meeting, the City Council held an hour-long executive session on the issue before opening the City Council Chamber doors to the public, and then discussed fi ve motions that addressed the issue in some form or another. “This issue has received quite a bit of press over the last couple of weeks, to the point where everybody in the city wants to talk about it,” said Councillorat-Large Gerry Visconti during a discussion on a motion he introduced alongside City Council President Anthony Zambuto and Ward 6 Councillor Richard Serino backing Arrigo’s opposition to the BPHC plan. He continued, “I want to say fi rst to the homeless people – those battling substance abuse in and around the Mass. Cass area – that I am so deeply sorry that acting [Boston] Mayor Kim Janey, the Boston City Council and the Boston Public Health Commission have failed you. The fact that they have the audacity to put their heads in the sand for the past 10 years and all of the sudden want to push that problem over to the Revere area is inconceivable.” Rather than dealing with the problem, Visconti said, Boston offi cials have shifted the problem down the road to Revere. “Revere is not and will not be the dumping ground for your problems,” said Visconti. “I hope the City Council, the administration and all our residents stand united on this issue. We can’t stand idly by and let them dump their problem on our city. For Mayor Janey, I have one message: not now, and not ever.” Many of the councillors who spoke on Monday night echoed Visconti’s sentiments that the city will stick together and not accept Boston shifting a longstanding, ongoing problem to Revere. Several councillors also noted the lack of information and planning on the part of the BPHC, and that an empty hotel is not a proper landing spot for people who need medical and crisis intervention help. Serino, whose North Revere ward is home to the Quality Inn, said the homelessness and substance abuse problems are a regional problem. But, he said, the Quality Inn is not an acceptable place to dump the problem. “They are bringing their problem to another community to have them solve it,” he said.

(Photo Courtesy of the City of Revere) City Council approves purchase of Thayer Ave. boatyard site By Adam Swift I n contrast to the ongoing controversy over the Quality Inn, the City Council took care of a much more positive piece of business last Monday night, approving a $1.725 million loan order for the purchase of the Riverside Boatyard property on Thayer Avenue. The purchase will set the stage for the city to use the property as a recreation site that will include areas for nonmotorized boat access, rowing, classes and greater access to the waterfront. The development of the property is part of the Riverfront Master Plan, which also includes improvements to Gibson Park, the private development of the G&J towing property, and traffi c improvements. “The acquisition of this propThe Quality Inn, which is located at 100 Morris St., could be used as a transitional homeless shelter. (Courtesy Photo) erty at 27 Thayer Ave. is a monumental step towards advancing the goals of the Riverfront Master Plan and to expand and enhance our recreational opportunities,” said Elle Baker, the city’s open space and environmental planner. “The property, known to most people as just the boatyard, has a unique characteristic in that it off ers appropriate waterfront access for nonmotorized boating, including a suitable site for a dock to support rowing as an offi cial elite sport for our youth and our entire community.” Baker said the property will provide an epic opportunity for water-based recreation in addition to the amenities at adjacent Gibson Park. “There’s a long history of controversy with surrounding neighborhoods with suggestions of residential development, and this acquisition, if approved, will put a stop to that suggestion of residential development,” said Baker. Baker said it has yet to be determined if the existing building on the property can be preserved, but she said the city wants to maintain the character of the building while renovating the facility to provide some small boat storage, classrooms, meeting space and restrooms. “The city is prepared to take the necessary steps required to secure grant funding in order to bring this transformation to fruition,” said Baker. Elaine Hurley, who serves on the Riverfront Advisory Group and has been a key figure in the battle against the residential development of the property, spoke in favor of the project. “This piece of property survived the development boom of the 80s, when a 10-story, 82-unit proposal was the beginning of 35 years of fi ghting to keep overdevelopment out of our neighborhood,” said Hurley. “Tonight, in 2021, we fi nally have a development that fi ts our neighborhood perfectly: a place for our children to learn just how important the ocean is.” Several councillors praised Hurley for her continued advocacy for the Riverfront area. The councillors also pointed to the transformative nature of the boatyard property for the neighborhood and the city. “It’s so important that we have more open space in the city of Revere and that we can actually access the water,” said Councillor-at-Large Jessica Ann Giannino. “We have America’s fi rst public beach; it’s a beautiful place; however, you can’t easily send a kayak out from Revere Beach.” Giannino said she was on the council when a 40B aff ordable housing development was proposed for the boatyard site and that it was an awful situation for the council and for the neighbors. “This proposal is just a huge sigh of relief, not just for the council, but for the rest of this neighborhood – to know this area will be a place the public can utilize,” she said. “It will not be residential, and it will be a space the city can take care of that generations can enjoy.”

But in Revere, there’s been an ongoing problem with the carts getting away from the store. Over the past month, Ward 1 www.eight10barandgrille.com We Have Reopened for Dine-In and Outside Seating every day beginning at 4 PM Councillor Joanne McKenna said, she’s counted over 150 derelict carts on her own that have been dumped on city streets, sidewalks and property. At last Monday night’s City Council meeting, McKenna introduced a motion asking representatives from some of the city’s bigger grocery and box stores to appear before the council and address the problem. “In the last couple of months, I don’t know if anyone has seen the overwhelming amount of shopping cars that are in the city,” said McKenna. Revere has an ordinance on the books where it can charge $25 per abandoned and stored shopping cart it picks up, but McKenna said the issue is that the city has no place to store the abandoned buggies. “What the city has been doing is they have been working overtime and putting them back in the Market Basket where someone from those stores will come and retrieve the shopping carts within two days. However, McKenna said that from what she has seen the stores have not been picking up the carts, and that they should be removed from the city streets sooner than in two days. Councillor-at-Large Steve MoJOANNE MCKENNA Ward 1 Councillor stores,” she said. “What good is this? We have to come up with some kind of solution.” The stores either need to hire someone to pick up the shopping carts, or install a system where there are brakes on a cart that locks the wheels if someone tries to take it past a certain boundary. “All the shopping carts are getting thrown all over our city, and they are littering our city, but we can’t do anything about it because we don’t have any place to store them,” McKenna said. Ward 2 Councillor Ira Novoselsky said there are phone numbers listed for Stop & Shop and rabito said the abandoned carts are a public safety issue. “We have two supermarkets, one on the west side of Revere and one near Beachmont,” he said. “We have main roads like Washington Avenue, Salem Street, Revere Beach Parkway, State Road; this is a public safety issue. These carriages – we have one night of wind, high winds – these are going right into someone’s car; it’s going to cause a major accident and maybe even cost someone’s life.” Morabito said the fines for abandoned carts should be increased and corporate supermarkets held accountable. Councillor-at-Large Jessica Ann Giannino suggested the council look at an ordinance where larger stores with shopping carts have to install a braking system. Options on the table for redistricting By Adam Swift At a public meeting last week, A WE'RE OPEN! 8 Norwood Street, Everett (617) 387-9810 STAY SAFE! s the community that saw the biggest percentage jump in population with the 2020 U.S. Census, the City has a lot of work to do when it comes to redistricting. city offi cials laid out six potential redistricting maps they are looking to get more input on before bringing one or two plans before the City Council later this month. Those potential redistricting maps look to even out the six city wards so they are close in population to each other, according to Reuben Kantor, Revere’s Chief Innovation Offi cer. Some of the draft maps presented during the public forum seek to make the wards more geographically even, while others seek to keep the lines as close as possible to the current boundaries while making sure the city still meets state and national legal requirements for the population fl uctuations between wards. “A lot has changed in Revere in the last 10 years since the 2010 census,” said Kantor. The two biggest changes are the 20 percent jump in total population and the large jump in Hispanic/Latino population in the city. The 2020 census pegs the Revere population at 62,186 residents, the highest growth of any municipality in the state. According to Kantor, the city saw growth in all wards. The greatest amount of growth was in Ward 2 at nearly 32 percent. In 2010, 62 percent of Revere’s population identifi ed as white, while in 2020, that number is down to 45 percent. During the past decade, the Hispanic/Latino population increased from 24 percent to 37 percent. POPULATION | SEE Page 16 Prices subject to change        FLEET

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, OCTOBER 1, 2021 Page 3 Councillors work for safer streets By Adam Swift C ouncillors Steven Morabito and Patrick Keefe want Revere’s drivers to slow down. During last Monday night’s City Council meeting, Morabito requested that Mayor Brian Arrigo and the Traffi c Commission look into establishing a slow streets pilot program. Earlier this summer, Keefe proposed a similar idea to help combat drivers who speed through many of Revere’s cut-through streets. “As you know, speeding is a hot topic throughout the city, and it is a major concern of the residents,” said Morabito. “The purpose of launching a slow streets pilot program is to help curb speeding.” The motion by Morabito includes the introduction of traffi c-calming measures, such as speed tables, speed humps, crosswalks, signage and bollards to help curb the excessive speeding. He said similar measures have been effective in Dorchester and Jamaica Plain. “The slow street pilot program will engage community groups, ward councillors, residents, the mayor, traffi c commission, the police,” Morabito said. “The program will aim to use safety tools MPR ENGINEERING CO.

He said the problems are especially bad on the cut-through streets on Broadway. “There are just too many high speed accidents in the city, and we need to take a step in the right direction,” Keefe said. In other council business last Monday night, Ward 3 Councillor Arthur Guinasso was not a fan of Councillor-at-Large Traffic Commission finds parking relief for Jack Satter House By Adam Swift T he parking woes look to be at an end for the residents of Jack Satter House, a senior housing development on Revere Beach Boulevard. For the last several months, the residents have been campaigning before city offi cials in an eff ort to increase the number of visitor parking passes available to the 250 or so residents in the building. Coming before the City Council and the Traffi c Commission several times, they have described the hardship of having only 19 visitor passes available for the entire building. But last week, the Traffi c Commission and new Parking Director Zachary Babo delivered some good news to the residents in attendance at the monthly Traffi c Commission meeting. “We’ve looked through the [city’s parking] ordinance and [Jack Satter House is] listed under Schedule F, which allows for a resident one resident parking sticker per unit, as long as your car is registered in Revere,” said Traffi c Commission Chair Paul Argenzio. “You will be afforded the opportunity to receive a permit, one per unit, and you are also aff orded the opportunity to apply for one visitor permit per unit.” The parking permits are free with vehicle registration, and the visitor permits are free for anyone 65 and above and $10 for anyone under 65. Residents do not have to have a registered vehicle in order to apply for a visitor’s permit. The visitor parking permit will allow for 24-hour parking on Oak Island Street and the adjacent roads. The only potential wrench in that plan is that the state Department of Conservation & Recreation (DCR) owns Oak Island Street and has the right to take over the street if it sees fi t. Currently, the DCR is allowing the City of Revere to operate the street under its ordinances. “As of right now, we will make these changes and we will support the Jack Satter House residents with their permits, but this isn’t a guaranteed thing,” said Babo. “If DCR takes over this area, the enforcement would be done by them and handled by them.” PARKING | SEE Page 6 PATRICK KEEFE Ward 4 Councillor George Rotondo’s motion to allow a councillor to submit up to 10 motions per meeting and speak on four in months when the council meets twice.

Guinasso said the meetings would quickly bog down if there were so many motions allowed on the agenda. Rotondo’s motion was sent to committee for further discussion. ~ Since 1989 ~ * Corporate Litigation * Criminal/Civil * MCAD * Zoning/Land Court * Wetlands Litigation * Workmen’s Compensation * Landlord/Tenant Litigation * Real Estate Law * Construction Litigation * Tax Lein * Personal Injury * Bankruptcy * Wrongful Death * Zoning/Permitting Litigation 300 Broadway, Suite 1, Revere * 781-286-1560 lsimeonejr@simeonelaw.net For Advertising with Results, call The Advocate Newspapers at 781-286-8500 or Info@advocatenews.net 100 years of cigar experience Buy Cigars by the Box & Save!

Page 4 THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, OCTOBER 1, 2021 Mystic Valley files Complaint against Mass. Department of Elementary and Secondary Education Special to Th e Advocate Y esterday, Mystic Valley Regional Charter School (Mystic Valley) fi led a complaint in Suffolk Superior Court against the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) in response to a draft report issued by DESE which will impact Mystic Valley’s application for reauthorization in 2023. Summary of the Complaint M ystic Valley fi led a complaint on September 20, 2021, in Suffolk Superior Court against DESE seeking to enjoin the Department from evaluating the school based upon what the school contends are newly created, unlawful, vague and targeted “cultural proficiency” criteria that would put the school in breach of its Charter and potentially cause it to be shut down. Mystic Valley is a widely respected, successful charter school that has been regularly rechartered over the last two decades by the state without issue. Mystic Valley employs a dress code and bases its curriculum on a commonality and “melting pot” approach to education that is hyper-focused on excellence in academic achievement. Mystic Valley alleges in its Complaint that it has unearthed internal DESE emails showing that DESE is directly targeting Mystic Valley and its Charter, including by appointing at least one member of a review panel who openly described the member’s bias and intention to go after Mystic Valley before the review even began. At very same time, internal DESE email conceded that DESE had no formal complaints pending against Mystic Valley from anyone. Mystic Valley strenuously objects to the draft report and issues the following statement from its Board of Trustees “This is a case about academic freedom. The Commonwealth of Massachusetts granted Mystic Valley’s charter more than twenty years ago, and the School has successfully followed its charter ever since. However, DESE is now clearly working to try and undermine Mystic Valley’s charter and approach to education. DESE’s biased actions are an existential threat to our continued operations, jeopardizing the very core of Massachusetts’s legal obligation to protect charter schools and their autonomy. That is why we have gone to court. “We are proud of our school, its mission, its values, its diverse community and the achievements of our thousands of students and alumni. We will continue to defend our community against baseless attacks. If we do not, thousands of students of all races, ethnicities, incomes, and backgrounds will lose the opportunity to attend a nationally recognized school with a remarkable record of student achievement. We cannot let that happen. “It is clear that the DESE offi cials who conducted the site visit did so with a pre-existing bias against our school and its charter. In internal emails exchanged six months before any site visit, DESE personnel repeatedly stated, without evidence, that Mystic Valley is in need of reform. They used this sham site COMPLAINT | SEE Page 6 Revere CARES Coalition to address proposed indoor smoking bar Special to Th e Advocate O n October 5 at 6:30 p.m., the Revere Board of Health will hold a hearing to discuss whether to allow an indoor smoking bar. Smoking bars can include hookahs, cigars and vapes. While Massachusetts passed a fl avor restriction in November 2019, fl avored tobacco is allowed in smoking bars. We have learned from the vaping crisis that fl avors attract young people, leading to unintended addiction and negative health consequences. Tobacco use causes chronic diseases and shortens life. As a city and state, we have come a long way in reducing tobacco use in young people. As a community, we should strive to create an environment that makes the healthy choice the easy choice. The health of our citizens should come before business interests and profi ts. Allowing a smoking bar creates an environment that promotes the use of tobacco and sends the wrong message to our kids – enticing and addicting young adults. Right now, we are living through the COVID-19 pandemic. Can we allow one more business to operate that negatively aff ects people’s health? Can hookah instruments, which are meant to be shared, be properly sanitized to prevent the spread of disease? These are questions we all need to consider. We invite you to attend the Revere Board of Health meeting to share your concerns, or you can submit your comments by calling 781-485-8486 or emailing Paula Sepulveda at psepulveda@ revere.org.

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, OCTOBER 1, 2021 Page 7 ~ LETTER-TO-THE-EDITOR ~ Rotondo opposes using Quality Inn as homeless shelter Dear Editor: I stand shoulder to shoulder with Mayor Arrigo and all of my Colleagues in Revere City Government against acting Mayor Janey and the Boston Public Health Commission’s attempt to create a homeless shelter at the Quality Inn in West Revere. Acting Mayor Janey’s ineffective leadership and disingenuous comments recently made to the Boston media of regional homelessness in a Boston neighborhood from what the press calls Methadone Mile a regional issue is just fl at out nonsense. If acting Mayor Janey and the Boston Public Health Commission honestly believe that homelessness is a severe regional issue (which it is), then the best approach, in my experience, would have been to have the acting Mayor contact the surrounding municipality’s leadership (Brookline, Winthrop, Saugus, Cambridge, Chelsea, Dedham, Everett, Milton, Newton, Needham, Quincy, Revere, Somerville, Watertown and Westwood) and develop a regional task force with support from the state to create a regional solution. Instead, she lacks leadership, and her behavior exemplifi es the not in my backyard attitude of an untrustworthy partner in fi ghting any initiative moving forward. Further, her lack of vision ignores the plight of those stricken with substance abuse disorder living in the substandard conditions in Boston. Last I checked, Revere does not have a hospital, an addiction treatment center; whereas Boston is the health care mecca of the world. So, let’s call out Acting Mayor Janey’s BS for what it is, the next phase of the city of Boston’s gentrifi cation plan (South End) from the area described by the media as Methadone Mile. What troubles me is the lack of transparency considering Acting Mayor Janey’s husband is one of the largest contractors in the city of Boston. If you go to the Boston Planning and development agency you will see all the projects underway from Albany Street to South Hampton Street to South Bay, all steps from Methadone mile. Considering her husband is a major contractor and her apparent lack of transparency it does not surprise me. She is dumping the most vulnerable of society into a hotel isolated next to Kappys liquor. That said, as an ICU nurse, I do not know of any studies that suggest warehousing people in a hotel in Revere next to a Liquor store is a tremendous public health solution. However, if the wizards led by Acting Mayor Janey believed this was the best solution, then why did they not choose the numerous hotels located in the city of Boston? If Boston truly wants to work on homelessness and addiction as a fundamental regional issue, let’s have an open dialogue between all regional stakeholders in the public and LETTER | SEE Page 10 George Rotondo is 100% against Boston turning Revere into a drug treatment facility Boston’s acting-mayor Janey is failing the homeless and those with substance abuse disorder and her attempt at warehousing them at the Quality Inn in Revere.

LETTER | FROM Page 7 private sectors. Let us work with MGH/Brigham, Boston Medical Center, the State of Massachusetts Department of Public Health to address substance abuse disorder and regional homelessness collectively. The current approach by acting Mayor Janey is to dump Boston’s most needy, who have substantial health needs at a secluded hotel which is next to a liquor store in Revere isolated by a highway and miles away from the mecca of medicine and addiction recovery in Boston. Janey is irresponsible and reckless. In closing, we need to stand against Mayor Janey’s Master Plan to gentrify the area and her fi nal solution to warehouse the affl icted in a remote hotel.

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, OCTOBER 1, 2021 Page 11 Ward 2 Council Candidate Manuel Carrero to host fundraiser at Cinco de Mayo Restaurante y Cantina on Oct. 4th Get to know fi rst-time City Council candidate at ‘An Evening with Manuel Carrero’ M anuel Carrero, candidate for Revere City Council Ward 2 will host a fundraiser and meet and greet on Wednesday, October 4th, from 5:30 to 8pm at Cinco de Mayo Restaurante y Cantina, 124 Centennial Ave. Featuring complimentary food, a cash bar, and lively music, the event will off er opportunities to connect with Manuel, his supporters, and neighbors from across Ward 2 as well as learn how Manuel plans to deliver change that works for us. Suggested donations are $25 and can be made via his website, votecarrero.com, or his Facebook page. Manuel is running to ensure all residents of Ward 2—which includes the historic Shirley Ave neighborhood and parts of America’s fi rst public beach— are represented at City Hall. Being the fi rst-generation American son of a union hospitality worker and a self-employed mechanic, Manuel’s upbringing refl ects the hard working character of our city. Manuel’s parents came to America looking for an opportunity to improve their lives and that of their family. At the age of 13 Manuel and his single mother, Maria Patiсo, moved to Ward 2 where they have lived since. Manuel is a proud graduate of Revere High School’s Class of 2014 and holds a degree in engineering from Merrimack College. As an engineer he continues to fi nd solutions to everyday problems and hopes to bring critical thinking to local government. As our next City Councilor, Manuel will deliver the change that our neighborhood deserves—change rooted in the idea that there is a delicate balance needed in city government in order to protect the fabric of our community. From housing and development to public infrastructure to government accessibility, Manuel and his supporters believe it is time to bring Change that Works for Us to City Hall.

Page 16 THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, OCTOBER 1, 2021 POPULATION | FROM Page 2 The biggest goal of redistricting is to even out the population across the six wards. The average ward population grew from 8,622 residents to 10,364 residents over the past decade. “Everything we are doing is thinking about those 10,364 residents, within a certain deviation,” Kantor said. Legally, each ward must be within a fi ve percent deviation of total population, although Kantor said most of the draft maps are within the two percent deviation in population the city is hoping to reach. “We’re trying to get everyone to this boundary of just slightly above 10,000 people,” he said. The six draft maps are available for review and feedback on the city website at revere.org. “Each of the maps has some benefi ts and some possible downsides,” said Kantor. The first draft map has the slightest amount of geographical change, but it has the largest deviation in population between the wards. The biggest changes include some shuffling between sections of Wards 1 and 2, as well as between Wards 3 and 6. “Some of the problems with this map is that it carves up a little more of Shirley Avenue and maintains some additional geographical inconsistencies,” said Kantor. “It also creates a discrepancy of nearly 1,000 residents between Ward 2 and Ward 6, which is a pretty substantial diff erence.” A variation on that map tries to limit the changes of the boundaries as much as possible, but keeps the population deviation between wards closer to two percent. “We’re not advocating for this map; we are just noting that if we want to minimize the changes but hit some basic benchmarks, these are some possible options,” said Kantor. The third and fourth draft maps are attempts at making more commonsense geographical boundaries for the wards, while the fi fth map aims to create a Hispanic/Latino supermajority of voters in Ward 2. Kantor said the fi fth map may create a little too much stretching of the other ward boundaries to make it feasible, but that it does deliver on a goal that some people in the city wanted to look at. The fi nal draft map presented at the public forum was a proposed ward map submitted by the Secretary of State’s offi ce. Ward 6 Councillor Richard Serino noted that one of the maps would place all of Newman Street into his district. The street is currently divided between Wards 6 and 3. Anthony Cogliandro, a candidate for Ward 3 councillor, lives on the Ward 3 side of the street. While a potential change would not impact the Ward 3 seat in this election, it could place both Serino and Cogliandro in Ward 6 in 2023. “I would like to state, for the record, that I would love for Newman Street on the odd side to stay in Ward 3,” said Cogliandro. Ward 4 Councillor Patrick Keefe said he has been an advocate for making the wards more geographically coherent, and asked if the maps that would be presented to the City Council would be set in stone. Kantor said the City Council would have the ability to give feedback and there would be the opportunity to make changes as long as the wards fall into the legal parameters. Currently, Kantor said, the plan is to present a draft map or two to the City Council for discussion in early October, with a fi - nal vote by the end of October. However, he noted that there is potential state legislation which could push back the deadlines for drawing the new map if it passes on Beacon Hill. TRUSTS AS IRA BENEFICIARIES T rusts can be named as a benefi ciary of an IRA account if the IRA account owner wishes for there to be control over required minimum distributions upon the original IRA owner’s death. If the IRA account owner want the funds to go to a minor child, for example, an outright distribution to the child would not be possible unless guardianship proceedings are commenced. The Trust allows the IRA account owner to provide for the required minimum distributions to be paid to the Trust over a 10-year period so long as the Trust is a seethrough Trust, meaning the Trust benefi ciaries are identifi ed. Under the Secure Act, only eligible beneficiaries can stretch the IRA over his or her life expectancy. Ineligible benefi ciaries must stretch out the IRA over a 10-year period. If the Trust is not a seethrough Trust and the benefi ciaries are not identifi ed, the Trust must take required minimum distributions over a fi veyear period.

Required minimum distributions are then reportable by the Trust as income in the year received. If there is a distribution to a particular benefi ciary of the Trust out of the separate IRA account, that beneficiary will pay the tax on that distribution. A Schedule K-1 form would be given to the benefi ciary in order to him or her to fi le an individual income tax return for that particular calendar year. If no distributions are made by the Trustee to any benefi ciary after having received a taxable required minimum distribution, then the Trust itself would pay the tax. An IRA owner may wish to name a Trust as the benefi - ciary if a second marriage is involved and he or she wishes to provide for the spouse to receive Trust distributions over his or her lifetime with any remaining IRA monies in the Trust to be held for the benefi t of children of a previous marriage. If the Trust was a conduit Trust with mandatory annual or more frequent distributions, the surviving spouse would be an eligible benefi ciary and therefore the Trust’s required minimum distributions could be based upon the spouse’s life expectancy. Leaving the entire IRA account to the second spouse might result in no monies ever being distributed to children of the fi rst marriage for a variety of reasons. If a Trust is the benefi ciary of the IRA account, the terms of the Trust itself will dictate when the beneficiaries of the Trust will be entitled to distributions. This prevents spendthrift benefi ciaries from squandering the IRA monies. Also, there would most likely be more protection of the IRA monies if owned by the Trust as a result of spendthrift provisions contained in the document. Inherited IRA accounts do not off er the same level of asset protection of IRA accounts created and owned by the original account owner. The distributions to the Trust under a 10-year payout requirement, for example, does not mean the Trustee is going to make distributions to the benefi ciaries over that 10year period. It could be a much longer period of time due to the terms of the Trust. As always, the Trustee will have to take tax planning issues into consideration. Joseph D.

COVID RULES FOR OPERATION OF THE MASSACHUSETTS HOUSE (H 4121) House 131-28, approved am order that requires all representatives and House staff to be vaccinated in order to be allowed to work in the Statehouse; and to maintain full vaccination status against COVID-19 on an ongoing basis, as recommended by the CDC. A key section establishes an 8-member House Working Group on COVID-19 comprised of seven members appointed by the Democratic Speaker Ron Mariano and one member appointed by GOP Minority Leader Brad Jones. The working group has the power to establish many of the details of the vaccine mandate including establishing the deadline for people to be vaccinated and establishing a system for exempting from the vaccine anyone who chooses not to get vaccinated because of a qualifying disability or medical condition that contraindicates administration of the vaccine or because of a sincerely held religious belief. Other provisions require that all members and staff be granted paid time off to receive the vaccine; be required to follow any other rules established by the working group including wearing face masks, maintaining physical or social distancing or being tested for COVID-19; declare a state of emergency in the House and extend the House rule that allows members to vote and participate remotely in the House session until a majority of House members call for an end to the emergency. “Vaccination is the best tool for mitigating the risk of spreading COVID-19 and we need to know where we stand collectively as colleagues and as a House,” said Rep. Bill Driscoll (D-Milton), the House chair of the Committee on Covid-19 and Emergency Preparedness and Management. “It was essential we move forward with mandating a proof of vaccination in order to consistently convene in-person once again. Vaccines have proven to be the most eff ective tool in keeping us safe and, layered with other non-pharmaceutical measures, will guide us through to the other side of the Delta variant and aff ord us the opportunity to return in-person.” “The House took actions … that I could not support,” said Rep. Michael Soter (R-Bellingham). “The safety of all members and staff is of the utmost importance. However, I’m disappointed to see these crippling guidelines put in place. This is the people’s house, and we are one of the last entities in the state to discuss a reopening plan. We should be leading the charge in educating individuals on the benefi ts of the COVID-19 vaccination and not use mandates and threats. By doing so, we would increase participation and decrease hesitancy. My colleagues did not focus on uniting us. They focused on dividing us during a time where leaders should be doing better.” Public Hearing Notice City of Revere, MA Board of Health Notice is hereby given in accordance with the provisions of MGL Chapter 111, Section 31 and Chapter 2.78 of the Revised Ordinances of the City of Revere, MA that the Revere Board of Health will conduct a public hearing on Tuesday evening, October 5, 2021 at 6:30P.M., in the City Councilor Joseph A. DelGrosso City Council Chambers, Revere City Hall, 281 Broadway, Revere, MA on the following: Proposed Amendments to Smoke Free Workplace Regulations A copy of the aforementioned current regulations are available for public inspection at the Department of Public Health, 25 Winthrop Ave, Revere, MA 02151 Monday through Thursday from 8:15 A.M. to 5:00 P.M. and Friday from 8:15 A.M. to 12:15 P.M. Attest: Dr. Nathalee Kong, Chair Revere Board of Health “The fi rst step to reopening this building is a commitment to each other that we will do everything we can to keep our staff , our colleagues, our families and the public safe,” said Rep. Kate Hogan (DStow). “We know that vaccines are the most eff ective tool, by far, in keeping us safe by reducing the risks of transmission, hospitalization and death, particularly when used with masks and social distancing protocols. Therefore, the vaccine requirement is necessary to optimally provide for the continued safety of the House as a workplace for our members, offi - cers, staff , employees and eventually, the public.” “I was disappointed by the order … I truly want to get behind a good comprehensive reopening plan,” said Rep. Kimberly Ferguson (R-Holden). “So here’s the issue: What we have before us today unfortunately is a vague document with no detailed guidelines, no metrics, no clear parameters. What we have here is a document which gives the 8-member working group … the ultimate and fi nal say in all further actions, mandates and policies regarding COVID-19 in the House. No debate, no further votes, no further House discussions are needed. And that concerns me. How can we as a body vote today on something with such lack of clarity? How can we as a body vote on many policies we haven’t been able to see yet?” “These rules allow us to re-open safely and will provide our staff and fellow members with the comfort that we as a House are taking every step we can to ensure their health and safety.” Said Judiciary Committee House chair Rep. Michael Day (D-Stoneham). “As we are charged to do by our state constitution, we acted for the common good by adopting measures that balance our ability to continue to eff ectively conduct the business of the state with the need to get this pandemic under control.” (A “Yes” vote is for the vaccination requirement and the other rules. A “No” vote is against them.) Rep. Jessica Giannino Yes INCREASE HOURS THAT RETIRED PUBLIC EMPLOYEES CAN WORK (H 4007) House 158-0, overrode Gov. Baker’s veto of a bill that would increase from 960 hours per year (18 hours per week) to 1,200 hours per year (23 hours per week) the maximum amount of time a public retiree collecting a pension is allowed work for the state or local government. “I support providing municipalities and state agencies with increased fl exibility to make appropriate staffi ng decisions,” said Gov. Baker in his veto message. “However, an increase of 240 more hours per year is a signifi cant policy change and moves the commonwealth and its municipalities closer to a place where employees continue to work near full-time while collecting a pension, without any corresponding changes to improve the current practice. I therefore proposed an amendment that would have increased the number of hours to 975, which more accurately refl ects half-time, thereby allowing some fl exibility to retired employees who are bumping against the current 960hour limit. In addition, I proposed a waiver to the hour caps for personnel in positions where a critical shortage of qualifi ed personnel has been determined.” Supporters of the increase to 1,200 hours said that allowing retirees to work 23 hours per week is reasonable and will help many retirees who are struggling to make ends meet. They said it is unfair to punish retirees who would like to work more hours and provide their services to the state or local government. “As we continue to navigate this pandemic and its eff ects on our local and state government, it is imperative that we are able to utilize the knowledge and experience that many of our retirees possess,” said Rep. David Linsky (D-Natick). “This is important as many of these roles are evolving and allowing our retirees to assist in this process without hindering their pensions will help us turn the corner towards more effi cient government practices both during these challenging times and post-pandemic.” (A “Yes” vote is for the increase to 1,200 hours. A “No” vote is against it.) Rep. Jessica Giannino Yes REPEAL THE HARBOR TAX CREDIT AND MEDICAL DEVICE TAX CREDIT (H 4008) House 130-29, overrode Gov. Charlie Baker’s veto of a bill that would repeal the current medical device tax credit and the harbor maintenance tax credit. Gov. Baker supported retaining both tax credits and said they encourage innovation and economic activity in the Bay State. “I see no reason to repeal the medical device user fee tax credit, as it is claimed annually by its intended benefi ciaries and supports medical device companies operating in the commonwealth,” said Baker in his veto message. “Similarly, I do not support the repeal of the harbor maintenance tax credit. It serves as a benefi t to shippers, importers and exporters who generate critical commercial activity in and around Massachusetts ports.” Supporters of repealing the tax credits said the Tax Expenditure Review Commission’s recent report made clear these two tax credits do not provide meaningful benefi t to the state and its residents. They noted that no other states off er these credits which are mostly used by large, profi table companies. (A “Yes” vote is for abolishing the tax credits. A “No” vote is for retaining them.) Rep. Jessica Giannino Yes REPEAL $5,000 ASSET LIMIT FOR SOME WELFARE RECIPIENTS (H 4012) House 130-29, overrode Gov. Baker’s veto of a bill that would repeal a current law that prohibits anyone with assets of more than $5,000 from being eligible for Transitional Assistance to Families with Dependent Children (TAFDC)—a program that provides cash assistance and employment support to families with children and pregnant women with little or no income or assets. Assets include things like bank accounts, retirement accounts and cash. Some things do not count as an asset including the person’s house and one car. “TAFDC extends a vital lifeline to certain Massachusetts residents, but I disagree with eliminating the current asset test completely,” said Gov. Baker in his veto message. “I do support reforming the TAFDC asset rule to allow recipients who meet the asset test at the time of application to continue to accrue assets in excess of the current limit without risk of losing eligibility for TAFDC. I would welcome the opportunity to further develop this policy in partnership with the Legislature to ensure these benefi ts are available for the commonBEACON | SEE Page 19

Some said the asset limit encourages people to spend down their assets at a time when they should be preserving or increasing savings. “Some of those most aff ected by this pandemic and its aftereffects are families with young children,” said Rep. David Linsky (DNatick). “We need to work toward providing access to essential help and services for this vulnerable population. Eliminating this barrier is a start towards helping this high-risk population begin to get back on their feet rather than continuing to put themselves in debt.” (A “Yes” vote is for repealing the $5,000 asset limit. A “No” vote is against repealing it.) Rep. Jessica Giannino Yes SEX EDUCATION (S 2534) Senate 38-1, approved and sent to the House legislation that would require that all public schools off ering a comprehensive sexual health education curriculum “provide medically accurate, age-appropriate sexual health education.” Under current law, public schools are not required to teach sex education and the bill does not change that but rather mandates that any schools that choose to teach sex education are required to follow a curriculum, based on age, that includes human anatomy, reproduction and sexual development; the benefi ts of abstinence and delaying sexual activity; the importance of eff ectively using contraceptives to prevent unintended pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases, including HIV and AIDS; ways to effectively discuss safe sexual activity; relationship and communication skills to form healthy, respectful relationships free of violence, coercion and intimidation; and information about gender identity and sexual orientation for all students, including recognition that people have diff erent sexual orientations, gender identities and gender expressions. The measure also requires any school off ering sex education to notify parents about the school’s sex education curriculum and gives parents the right to withdraw a student from the instruction. Another provision creates a process for parents to inspect the program instruction materials before the start of the course. Supporters said that under the bill, local cities and towns still have the authority and power to decide whether sex education is taught in their schools. They said the measure will ensure that schools that choose to teach sex educaPage 19 tion will have a framework to follow. They noted the bill will prepare students to make healthy decisions and will reduce teen pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases. “I am very proud that the Massachusetts Senate has once again reaffirmed our commitment to this commonsense healthy policy that will ensure our youth have the tools needed to protect their health and form respectful relationships,” said sponsor Sen. Sal DiDomenico (D-Everett) “This legislation makes it clear that sex education in the commonwealth must be inclusive for all students and emphasize the importance and necessity of consent. I would like to thank and congratulate the many advocates who have partnered with us on this legislation and worked tirelessly to ensure Massachusetts youth have the information they need to build the bright futures they deserve— without shame or judgement.” “This is a highly controversial bill, as demonstrated by the fact that it has failed to pass for multiple sessions,” said Sen. Ryan Fattman (R-Sutton), the only senator who voted against the measure. “If this legislation is to pass into law, it would be a direct usurpation of the local school district’s decision-making abilities. Each community has different needs based on their specifi c demographics, which is why they should have the ability to decide their curriculum. By mandating a statewide sex education curriculum, you directly take away the ability of a community to decide how sensitive topics like sex education are taught.” “It is quite troubling that our elected offi cials think taking local control away from school districts and parents regarding sex ed curriculum is a good idea,” said Andrew Beckwith, executive director of the Massachusetts Family Institute. “And even worse is the type of graphic content they want to push on students in the curriculum they are sanctioning. In what reality does normalizing high risk sexual activity like anal and oral sex for teens or teaching young vulnerable girls how to obtain abortions without their parents’ knowledge or consent result in healthy youth?” (A “Yes” vote is for the bill. A “No” vote is against it.) Sen. Joseph Boncore has resigned CHANGE GENDER ON BIRTH CERTIFICATES AND MORE (S 2533) Senate 39-0, approved and sent to the House a bill that would allow people to change their gender on their birth certifi cate, driver’s license, learner’s permit, identifi cation card or liquor purchase identifi cation card, including to a non-binary option other than male or female. The possible designations include “female,” “male” or “X” which would indicate that the person is another gender or an undesignated gender. The gender can only be changed by an adult, an emancipated minor or the parent or guardian of a minor. No documentation is required but the person changing the gender must submit an affi davit executed under the penalty of perjury attesting that the request is to conform to the person’s gender identity and is not made for any fraudulent purpose. The bill also directs the state to develop a plan for allowing a non-binary option on all state forms and instances where a gender choice is required. “People know what gender they are,” said sponsor Sen. Jo Comerford (D- Northampton). “This bill simply allows for gender identifi cation and IDs as diverse as our people. The Legislature must ensure that all of our constituents have access to IDs with nonbinary gender markers as beautifully diverse as they are.” (A “Yes” vote is for the bill.) Sen. Joseph Boncore has resigned 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.

Several councillors also stated that Revere has homelessness and substance abuse issues within its own borders it has worked hard to solve. “The good news is that we are on the same page on this issue; the mayor, the administration, we’re working cooperatively, and I’ve never seen such unity,” said Zambuto. “This is something where we stand for what’s right … we’re not hardhearted people, and we care about our neighbors who are having trouble with substance abuse and homelessness.

Pappagallo was MHS head football coach from 2009-2015 – seven seasons – and Freker was MHS head football coach for the past three seasons: from 2017-2020. Altogether? That’s 37 seasons from three of the last six coaches – spanning the period from 1973-2021 – who were on hand for new Head Coach Witche Exilhomme’s head coaching debut. Some side notes: Coach Exilhomme’s head coach from 2009-2011 at MHS was Coach Pappagallo, and Coach Freker played under Coach Finn in the late 1970s and then coached alongside him for 17 years as a Malden High football assistant coach from 1982-1998. **** Revere High Boys Soccer is experienced... and talented This year’s Revere High Boys Soccer team is one of the most experienced in the Greater Boston League, boasting 12 seniors. So do not make the mistake of underestimating the young Patriots talent-wise. Head Coach Manny Lopes’ team has already demonstrated they can hold their own with a 2-1-1 start so far this year, inmain a compassionate city, but as my colleague said, we will not be steamrolled, and we will not be forced to do something, especially with something that is not coordinated.” Speaking in her role as State Representative, Jessica Ann Giannino said that she and Saugus Representative Donald Wong drafted a letter to the BPHC that is being sent to every Revere and Saugus offi cial, as well as all members of the state legislature, voicing their adamant opposition to the Quality Inn proposal. “If this can happen in Revere, it can happen anywhere,” said Giannino. In the letter, Giannino and Wong state that Boston has an adequate number of hotels and the funding needed to deal with the Massachusetts Avenue and Melnea Cass issues. “It is clear that little to no planning was undertaken in advance of the relocation of unhoused individuals from Melnea Cass Boulevard,” the letter states. “The BPHC has continued to insist that the Quality Inn initiative Copyrighted material previously published in Banker & Tradesman/The Commercial Record, a weekly trade newspaper.

In addition, the council also unanimously approved motions asking that the legality of using a hotel as a medical facility be explored, that representatives from the Quality Inn appear before the council to discuss future plans for the site, that a public meeting be held with all stakeholders on the plans for the Quality Inn and that Revere fi le a public information request with the City of Boston asking for the total costs associated with public safety and public works associated with the Mass.

It includes picking up the body, completing and fi ling the necessary paperwork, the cremation itself and returning the cremated remains to the family. There’s no embalming, formal viewing or casket. A simple cardboard box called an “alternative container” is used to hold the body. Depending on where you live and the funeral home you choose, the average cost for a direct cremation runs between $1,000 and $3,000. If you want additional services beyond what a direct cremation off ers, ask the funeral home for an itemized price list that covers the other services cost, so you know exactly what you’re getting. All providers are required by law to provide this. To locate nearby funeral homes, look in your local yellow pages, or Google “cremation” or “funeral” followed by your city and state. You can also get good information online at Parting.com, which lets you compare prices from funeral providers in your area based on what you want. Immediate or Direct Burial If you’re interested in being buried, an immediate/direct burial is the most basic and lowcost option. With an immediate burial, your body would be buried in a simple container shortly after death, skipping the embalming, viewing and use of the funeral facilities. If your family wants a memorial service, they can have it at the graveside at your place of worship or at home without the body. These services usually cost between $1,800 and $3,500, not counting cemetery charges, which can run you an additional $1,000 to $3,000. All funeral homes off er direct burial. Green Burial An eco-friendly green burial is another aff ordable way to go that costs anywhere from $1,000 to $4,000 depending on the provider. With a green cemetery burial, the body is buried in a biodegradable coffin or just wrapped in a shroud, without embalming chemicals or a burial vault. The Green Burial Council (GreenBurialCouncil.org, 888966-3330) has a state listing of cemetery operators who accommodate green burials, as well as funeral professionals who provide the services. Anatomical Donation If you’d like to eliminate your cremation/burial costs all together, as well as help advance medical research, you and your husband should consider donating your bodies to science. This option won’t cost you a cent, however, some programs may charge a small fee to transport your body to their facility. After using your body for medical research projects, anatomy lessons and surgical practice, your remains will be cremated and your ashes will be buried or scattered in a local cemetery or returned to your family, usually within a year. To locate accredited university medical school body donation programs in your state, see the University of Florida’s U.S. program directory at Anatbd. acb.med.ufl .edu/usprograms, or call the whole-body donation referral service during business hours at 800-727-0700.
