THE ADVOCATE - A HOUSEHOLD WORD IN REVERE Vol.29, No.41 -FREEwww.advocatenews.net Free Every Friday 781-286-8500 Friday, October 9, 2020 Revere says goodbye to Hollywood Showcase Cinemas to become city’s second Amazon distribution site By Th e Advocate N ational Amusements, Inc. has entered into an agreement for the sale of its Showcase Cinemas site on Squire Road, Revere to Northbridge Partners, a Massachusetts-based investment fi rm. Northbridge Partners reportedly has plans to lease the site to Amazon, a well-known, multinational e-commerce retailer. According to their Attorney, Gerry D’Ambrosio, Northbridge Partners plans to build a stateof-the-art, last-mile delivery station at the Squire Road site that will eff ectively function as an extension of Amazon’s new facility housed at the former Necco factory in the City of Revere. The plan is for the existing movie theatre building to be razed and replaced with a new, multi-million dollar facility, which will result in a smallThe appearance of the building will be in line with that of the Amazon Last-Mile Distribution facilities and will be similar to this rendering.

D’Ambrosio estimates that, “the tax for the new building will likely be three times what it is now, and that City auto excise tax revenue will also jump as Amazon will register their vehicles there as well. This will only help keep the residential tax rate lower.” Additionally, the new distribution facility will likely bring hundreds of new jobs to the City. Councillor calls for tighter candidate residency requirements By Adam Swift C ity Councillor and Democratic state representative nominee Jessica Ann Giannino is proposing to tighten the residency requirements for those seeking elected offi ce in Revere. An order introduced by Giannino at Monday night’s City Council meeting would require candidates for Mayor, School Committee, and City Council to have lived in the city for at least one year. In addition, City Council JESSICA ANN GIANNINO Councillor-at-Large $1.95 GALLON We accept: MasterCard * Visa * & Discover Price Subject to Change without notice 100 Gal. Min. 24 Hr. Service 781-286-2602 ward candidates would need to have been residents of the ward they seek to represent for one year. “Some of you may be wondering where this is coming from,” said Giannino. “I recently ran for state election and this was a requirement to run for state rep or to run for state senate [to live in the district for a year]. It is also a requirement in some of our surrounding towns.” Enacting the requirements in Revere, she said, would protect the community and ensure people running for offi ce have a real, vested interest in each part of the community. “I think this is a great motion, and I’m shocked that it’s not already the law,” said Councillorat-Large Anthony Zambuto. Although there was a general consensus among the council that the motion would have a positive impact, there were some questions about the ward council requirements. Councillor-at-Large George Rotondo said he supports the order, but noted that there could be issues with ward district lines if there is redistricting in the city. However, he said those issues could be hammered out when the council takes it up later this month in its legislative aff airs subcommittee. During public input, Joe Gravellese, Giannino’s opponent in the state representative primary, said there could be some unintended consequences as a result of the order. “I think this is a soluREQUIREMENTS | SEE Page 17 Overall, D’Ambrosio said, “the proposed facility will result in incredibly valuable economic growth for the City, not only in job creation, but also in increased tax revenue and permit fees.” Ward 6 Councillor Richard Serino, who represents the area around the site, said there is some nostalgia for the loss of the cinema, but that overall he is happy with the likely shape of the Amazon project. “Nostalgically, I’m sad to see AMAZON | SEE Page 13 City Council questions Mayor’s funding for pay raises By Adam Swift N ever one to mince words, Councillor-at-Large Anthony Zambuto at Monday night’s City Council meeting characterized Mayor Brian Arrigo’s plan to fund raises for several administrative positions as “repugnant” and akin to plunging Revere into a “banana republic”–type state. In a motion at Monday night’s City Council meeting, Zambuto requested that Arrigo appear before the council at a future meeting to explain the maneuvering. At issue is a memo Arrigo sent to the council dated Sept. 29 regarding cuts the council made from the mayor’s proposed budget when it approved the $223,243,774 Fiscal Year 2021 budget in June. In the memo, Arrigo stated he plans to fund the salary adjustments for the positions through the use of federal, state and local funds that will not impact the budget’s bottom line. “To arrive at this fi gure, the ANTHONY ZAMBUTO Councillor-at-Large council voted to cut $127,296 from the budget that I submitted by reducing or rejecting proposed salary adjustments for seven specifi ed positions in the municipal payroll,” stated Arrigo. “Although I have doubts about the council’s legislative authority to intrude upon the executive function to set individual PAY | SEE Page 10

As Ken put it, “I was an outlier – too young socially and potentially too diffi cult a case medically for nearly all nursing homes.” But as fate would have it, Ken discovered the Leonard Florence Center for Living (LFCL) and experienced, for the fi rst time, hope. “The excellent care, support and technology have allowed me a degree of independence I didn’t think possible after my diagnosis,” said Ken. Having worked as a forester with the USDA Forest Service for 40 years, Ken supported a team of scientists studying biological and environmental infl uences on forest health and productivity. He appreciates the sheer beauty of the outdoors and enjoys the landscaped grounds at the Center. Added Dudzik, “I’ve encountered many unplanned divergences down roads I would never have willingly traveled, but now I appreciate my life each and every day. Living at the Leonard Florence Center for Living makes this possible.” For Ken and all the ALS and multiple sclerosis (MS) residents at LFCL, the freedom to live independently is an incredibly precious gift.

Over the next four weeks, the City of Revere will work to provide residents with information about the risks associated with various Halloween activities so they can make educated decisions for themselves and their families. Revere’s Parks and Recreation Department has developed an alternative plan for a “Spooktacular Lane” drive-thru event that incorporates Covid-19 public health guidance and provides Revere families an opportunity to safely participate in Halloween festivities. “Halloween is one of my family’s favorite holidays, but for the health of our community, we have to celebrate differently this year. We hope this alternative option provides our young people with a safer way to have some fun,” said Mayor Arrigo. “We’ve made some good progress over the past few weeks in terms of stabilizing our numbers. But we have to remain vigilant to ensure we are in the best possible position with the onset of colder weather and in anticiThe Revere Parks and Recreation Department is hosting this year’s Halloween Spooktacular Lane at 101 School St. (Revere High School) on October 31 from 12:00-4:00 p.m. Adults will drive up to the event and youngsters will walk through the Spooktacular Lane while observing social distancing guidelines.

With more people home due to the pandemic, everyone is cooking more! One ingredient you need every time you cook is safety. Here are some safety tips: • Stay in the kitchen when cooking. Never leave cooking unattended. • Wear tight-fitting clothing when cooking. Loose fitting clothing can easily catch fire. • Keep pot handles facing inward so pans can’t get knocked to the floor. • Teach children to stay 3-feet away from the stove. • Put a lid on stovetop fires. Keep a pot lid handy when cooking to smother stovetop fires. Then turn off the stove. • Never use water or a fire extinguisher on a grease fire. Water and extinguishers can spread the fire. Put a lid on a stovetop fire. • Keep things that can burn (paper, pot holders, towels, plastic bags) away from the stove. • For oven or microwave fires, keep the door closed, turn off the appliance and call the fire department. Remember if there is a fire: • Leave the building immediately and call 9-1-1. • If your clothing catches fire, stop, drop, cover & roll to put out the flames. • Most fire victims are hurt trying to fight the fire. Leave firefighting to the professionals. Always make sure you have working smoke alarms: • Test them monthly. If alarms have regular batteries change them when you change your clocks.

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, OCTOBER 9, 2020 Page 5 City receives over $113K in annual rideshare fees By Adam Swift G etting a dime per ride from every Uber, Lyft or other rideshare trip in the city might not seem like a lot, until you realize there were over 1.1 million such rides in Revere last year. Monday night, the City Council approved accepting $113,260 of those fees and putting them in the city’s roadway improvement fund. “This is the third year we have received funds from Uber and Lyft and other types of services like that,” said Richard Viscay, the city’s fi nance director. “We are entitled to one dime for each ride that originates here, and believe it or not, we had over 1.1 million Uber and Lyft rides originate in the city, so $113,000 and change is available to us to support our infrastructure needs and roads.” Councillor-at-Large George Rotondo asked if those funds were GEORGE ROTONDO Councillor-at-Large strictly for infrastructure repair or if they could be utilized for anything else, such as being put in the city’s general fund or capital project fund. Rotondo said he had several ideas about how the funds could be used. Viscay said the money can’t go into the general fund, but can be used for projects such as traffi c studies. “I believe we are going to use some of this money to do a street scan of all of our roads and get their conditions,” said Viscay, “so we can use it for capital planning, basically any kind of traffi c improvements that help offset the wear and tear on the roads and infrastructure we have in the city due to the increased volume of cars on the road.” The council unanimously approved accepting the funds for the roadway capital fund. In other infrastructure-related business at Monday night’s council meeting, Ward 1 Councillor Joanne McKenna introduced an order asking the mayor to have the public works department repair the public stairs at Winthrop and Bradstreet Avenues before the winter weather makes the situation more dangerous. McKenna said the top portions of the stairs are missing, making it dangerous for pedestrians using them. Councillor quarantines after friend tests positive for COVID-19 By Adam Swift W ard 6 Councillor Richard Serino has attended the last two City Council meetings via video, as he was under quarantine after coming into contact with a friend who tested positive for COVID-19. While Serino subsequently tested negative for COVID-19, he has quarantined at home for the past two weeks in line with state and federal guidelines. He said his situation is a reminder that the COVID-19 pandemic is still a serious issue locally and nationally. “About 11 days ago, I was meeting with a friend of mine who contracted COVID,” said Serino during Monday night’s council meeting. “He was a person who I considered as being in my circle, and is among the people I’ve been with since the beginning of the pandemic and I was seeing regularly. He was only getting a COVID test not because he was symptomatic, but rather because he was traveling and needed the test to go where he was going.” Serino said he was with the person the day after he got his COVID test, but said his friend was not symptomatic at that time. The day after that, Serino said, his friend got the positive test results, and Serino began his 14-day quarantine at home. “I do look forward to being back in the council chamber at the end of October,” said Serino. “I did test negative; however, under the advice of the CDC and Commonwealth guidelines for contact tracing, I will be staying inside until late this Thursday night (Oct. 8). This is just a reminder, too, to residents of the city that we are in the midst of a pandemic, and even if you are not symptomatic, you could still be a carrier of COVID-19.” With the ongoing pandemic, Serino said, it’s important to continue to follow CDC guidelines. “We must continue to be vigilant, wear a mask and stay socially distanced,” he said. Serino reminded residents that there is free COVID-19 testing at Revere High School and on Revere Beach near the Markey Bridge. “As we continue to be in a red community, please continue to stay vigilant and QUARANTINES | SEE Page 11 Gerry D’Ambrosio Attorney-at-Law Is Your Estate in Order?

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, OCTOBER 9, 2020 Page 9 Beachmont ready to bloom BIC plans spring opening of Community Garden Massort Noise Complaint Line: 617-561-3333 ~FLASHBACK~ Fifteenth in a series of photos p       BEACHMONT IN BLOOM: Tom and Mary Turner, Kathleen Heiser and Ed Deveau of the Beachmont Improvement Committee, Elle Baker from the City of Revere’s Offi ce of Strategic Planning and Economic Development and Beachmont resident Jadir Pimenta are shown on the site of the future Beachmont Community Garden on Broadsound Avenue. By Adam Swift I t might be hard to believe that a vacant lot on Broadsound Avenue may be home to a thriving, blooming community garden as early as next spring. The city has owned the plot at 133 Broadsound Ave. for several decades after the house was taken by FEMA due to repeated fl ooding issues. Now, the city, along with the Beachmont Improvement Committee (BIC), is in the midst of clearing the site for a 16-plot community garden that Elle Baker, the project manager of the City’s Offi ce of Strategic Planning and Economic Development, said could be ready for planting in the spring. “The Beachmont Improvement Committee has been interested in doing something with the property for some time, and we all think this a great idea, but we had to get the funding,” said Baker. Money was eventually earmarked for the community garden project through the Community Investment Trust. The public works department has already cleared concrete from the site, and Baker said much of the work for the garden will be done by the city. Baker said similar community gardens at the high school and Gibson Park have been great successes. She said the 16 fourfoot-by-eight-foot raised beds planned for the Beachmont Community Garden will be easily accessible and similar to the setup at the Gibson garden. The site will be irrigated so gardeners will have access to water, and Baker said other amenities on the site will include a shed for shared gardening tools, as well as an open space toward the back of the site where gardeners can gather at picnic tables. There will be a locked gate so only those who have garden plots will be able to enter the site. “We want to keep the back space open and available for gardeners to gather,” Baker said. Beachmont Improvement Committee Member Ed Deveau said he likes the idea of a place within the community garden for people to socialize. “It’s a great idea to make it a more social environment,” said Deveau. There will be a lottery at a future date for anyone who wishes to use a garden plot. Baker said there will be an annual $25 fee for the gardeners to help cover maintenance and upkeep of the site.

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, OCTOBER 9, 2020 PAY | FROM Page 1 salaries, I respect the council’s overall objections to approve a budget that imposes the least fi nancial burden on the taxpayer. Consequently, despite my reservations, I did not challenge the council’s ultimate decision.” However, Arrigo said the council’s decision did not diminish the importance of the positions he sought to fund as part of reorganization of the city’s administrative framework. “As the Covid19 pandemic continues to impose extraordinary demands on our workforce, it underscores the need for a skilled and dedicated staff ,” Arrigo stated. “I have explored alternative means of funding the payroll adjustments without affecting the 2021 fi scal year budget. I have determined we are able to restore the unfunded portions of salaries with a combination of federal, state, and local dollars without impacting the city’s bottom line.” But for Zambuto, even though the mayor stated that the positions could be fully funded without any additional tax burden, the action was seen as a brazen end run around the authority of the City Council. “I am distraught by a memo that tells me the mayor is about to circumvent the will of the City Council,” said Zambuto. “We had Caring for you in   it’s what we do best Dental care at no cost to you $305 towards eyeglass frames YMCA membership or $55 per month for gym membership We speak your language Join today!

I’m sure there is going to be an explanation coming as to how this fi ts into some, what I’ll call, loophole, but what it really does is circumvent the City Council, and I can’t stand for that.” Councillor-at-Large Gerry Visconti made a motion on top of Zambuto’s asking the mayor to appear before the council requesting that the council ask for a written opinion from the state’s bureau of finance law on the legality of the appropriations for the salary adjustments made by the mayor. “This is not political; this is strictly about checks and balances,” said Visconti. “I want to make sure we are doing the right thing, and I assume the administration has done that. But I’m here to represent the residents.” Councillor-at-Large George Rotondo echoed the sentiment that the council is needed to provide checks and balances in the budget process. “What we cut, it was very, very small,” Rotondo said. “But how can you give a pay raise – and people deserved the raise; make no mistake about it, they worked hard – but when you have people being laid off and losing their house or losing jobs here in the city itself, it is hard to justify that.” Zambuto reiterated that the mayor had circumvented the will of the council. “I’ve never seen a mayor try to get around the City Council like this since I’ve been on in 21 years,” said Zambuto. “I would like to get this train back on track.” The council voted to discuss the issue further at a future Ways and Means Subcommittee meeting. “This was not about money; it was about being an appropriate time to give pay increases during a pandemic when people were laid off ,” said Zambuto. “It doesn’t make it okay to do it through the backdoor. This is repugnant; this is ‘banana republic’ stuff , and I’m not going to tolerate it.”

Guidance for Halloween celebrations The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has provided comprehensive guidance related to risk levels associated with traditional Halloween activities. According to the CDC, higher risk activities should be avoided to help prevent the spread of the virus; those activities include the following: • Participating in traditional trick-or-treating where treats are handed to children who go door to door • Having trunk-or-treat where treats are handed out from trunks of cars lined up in large parking lots • Attending crowded costume parties held indoors • Going to an indoor haunted house where people may be crowded together and screaming • Going on hayrides or tractor rides with people who are not in your household • Using alcohol or drugs [https://www.cdc.gov/alcohol/ index.htm], which can cloud judgment and increase risky behaviors • Traveling to a rural fall festival that is not in your community if you live in an area with community spread of COVID-19 The City of Revere is encouraging residents to participate in lower-risk activities, including these suggestions from the CDC: • Carving or decorating pumpkins with members of your household and displaying them • Carving or decorating pumpQUARANTINES | FROM Page 5 please get tested,” he said. City Council President Patrick Keefe noted that he and several other councillors have taken advantage of the free testing in the city and have had the kins outside, at a safe distance, with neighbors or friends • Decorating your house, apartment, or living space • Doing a Halloween scavenger hunt where children are given lists of Halloween-themed things to look for while they walk outdoors from house to house admiring Halloween decorations at a distance • Having a virtual Halloween costume contest • Having a Halloween movie night with people you live with • Having a scavenger huntstyle trick-or-treat search with your household members in or around your home rather than going house to house Moderate risk activities, according to the CDC, include the following: • Participating in one-way trick-or-treating where individually wrapped goodie bags are lined up for families to grab and go while continuing to social distance (such as at the end of a driveway or at the edge of a yard) – if you are preparing goodie bags, wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds before and after preparing the bags. • Having a small group, outdoor, open-air costume parade where people are distanced more than 6 feet apart. • Attending a costume party held outdoors where protective masks are used and people can remain more than 6 feet apart. See https://www. cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019ncov/daily-life-coping/holidays. html#halloween for info on what is a safe mask. • Going to an open-air, oneway, walk-through haunted forest where appropriate mask use is enforced, and people can remain more than 6 feet apart – if screaming will likely occur, greater distancing is advised. The greater the distance, the lower the risk of spreading a respiratory virus. • Visiting pumpkin patches or orchards where people use hand sanitizer before touching pumpkins or picking apples, wearing masks is encouraged or enforced, and people are able to maintain social distancing. results come back negative. “I know that a number of councillors have been tested just because we want to spread awareness,” said Keefe. “On top of that, there are a lot of concerns about the city having a high positivity rate.” Like us on Facebook advocate newspaper Facebook.com/Advocate.news.ma Introducing Agility Orthopedics’ Newest Physician J.

You can view this game, the Jets versus Titans softball game, and any others RevereTV covered this summer on RTV’s YouTube page. The most recent games replay on the community channels on Friday and Saturday nights. A new program to look out for on the community channel is an instructional crafting show put on by RevereTV’s friends at the Rossetti-Cowan Senior Center. This was a hybrid production with some at home and some on set as they made a scarecrow door craft.

The space has professional cameras and lighting in place for all the proper angles of a cooking show; however, the kitchen is versatile, and RTV is excited to learn of community members’ ideas once community production starts again.

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, OCTOBER 9, 2020 Page 13 AMAZON | FROM Page 1 the Showcase Cinema close,” said Serino. “For my entire life, I have been going to the movie theater, and there has been a movie theater there in some form for about 50 years.” But given the one-two punch in societal changes of how people consume entertainment along with movie attendance falling off a cliff due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Serino said it was likely inevitable that the theater would close. On the positive side, the councillor said he is glad that the site will not be home to further residential development in the city and will remain a commercial property. On the campaign trail in Ward 6, Serino said he heard from many residents concerned about more large-scale apartment or condominium buildings going up in the area. “I’m very excited that this is going to be a commercial property,” said Serino. “Amazon will bring jobs to Revere, and from what I am hearing, they will also be improving traffi c in the area.” Serino said he will advocate for Revere residents to have precedence for jobs at the new Amazon facility, and added he will work with D’Ambrosio and the developers to make sure any necessary building mitigations are made to benefi t the residents of the ward. D’Ambrosio states that, “we are working closely with engineering and other consultants to design a plan for the facility that is in line with the City’s as-of-right zoning and which will result in a modern, well-designed building.” They are also actively seeking the input of City of Revere offi cials to develop a cohesive plan that is mindful of the concerns of and potential impacts to the City. Sale and transfer of property will likely go on record by this year’s end. Construction on the new facility will likely start in early 2021.

This week Beacon Hill Roll Call reports on how local legislators voted on some of the bills that were approved by the Legislature and signed into law by Gov. Charlie Baker in the 2020 session. Of the more than 6,000 bills that have been fi led for consideration, only 178 have been approved and signed by the governor. And only 28 of those were bills that affect the entire state while the vast majority were either sick leave banks, local land-taking measures or other local-related measures applying to just one city or town. Of those 28 bills, 13 were related directly to the COVID-19 virus and 15 were on other matters. Sick leave banks allow public employees to voluntarily donate sick, personal or vacation days to a sick leave bank for use by a fellow worker so he or she can get paid while on medical leave. Land takings are local land measures that usually only aff ect one city or town. Here are six of the statewide bills signed into law: BREAKFAST AFTER THE BELL (H 4896) House 158-0, Senate 35-0, approved a law designed to boost participation rates in school breakfast programs in high-poverty schools. The measure would require that breakfast be off ered only after the school day begins, through a variety of ways including breakfast in the classroom, grab-and-go and second-chance breakfast. Currently, only 150,000 of the 300,000 students eligible for breakfast actually take part in it. Supporters said that most school breakfasts are currently off ered in the cafeteria before the bell and the participation rate is less than 40 percent of eligible students because bus schedules and family obligations often result in the student not being able to arrive at school in time for breakfast. Participation is also low because of the stigma attached to the program. They said many students assume that everyone who arrives at school early for breakfast is from a poor family. The participation rate rises to up to 90 percent of eligible students participating in the lunch program later in the day. “Pre-pandemic, this bill made a lot of sense,” said Rep. Andy Vargas (D-Haverhill), co-sponsor of the bill. “In many ways, Breakfast After the Bell makes even more sense now. There are more families and students and need. School districts are being asked to limit cafeteria use to prevent the virus from spreading. Districts are short on revenue. Breakfast After the Bell speaks to all of these concerns and I look forward to its implementation and outcomes for educational equity.” “Ensuring breakfast access to all children who need it in our public schools was a priority pre-COVID-19 and is now more important than ever,” said the measure’s co-sponsor Rep. Aaron Vega (D-Holyoke). “Many districts have already implemented Breakfast After the Bell, including Holyoke, and are seeing the positive impact on school attendance, classroom engagement and a reduction in nurse visits.” “Studies show that something as simple as eating a healthy breakfast signifi cantly improves student performance throughout the school day,” said House Education Committee Chair Rep. Alice Peisch (DWellesley). “This bill will bolster participation in school breakfast programs across the commonwealth by allowing students to access this critical meal after the day begins, breaking down barriers associated with traditional breakfast programs such as lack of early transportation to school and associated social stigma.” (A “Yes” vote is for the bill.) Rep. Bob DeLeo Yes Rep. RoseLee Vincent Yes Sen. Joseph Boncore – NICKY’S BILL (S 2367) House 154-0, Senate 40-0, approved a law that established a registry that identifi es individuals who have been found to have committed abuse against persons with disabilities. The measure was fi led by Sen. Mike Moore (D-Millbury) at the request of a constituent who is the mother of Nicky, an intellectually disabled and non-verbal individual. Nicky had been inappropriately restrained and struck multiple times by her caretaker. Under current law, unless the off ender is criminally convicted, no system exists to identify caretakers and prevent them from finding employment with another provider licensed by the state. “Enacting this registry will help disrupt a cycle of abuse of individuals with disabilities and put in place common-sense protections that families in the commonwealth deserve,” said Sen. Moore. “There are clear benefi ts to screening prospective employees who intend to work within the licensed caretaker fi eld.» (A “Yes” vote is for the bill.) Rep. Bob DeLeo Yes Rep. RoseLee Vincent Yes Sen. Joseph Boncore $1 BILLION-PLUS INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY BOND (H 4932) House 155-4, Senate 39-0, approved a $1 billion-plus information technology bond titled “An Act Financing the General Governmental Infrastructure of the Commonwealth.” The state borrows the funds to fi nance the projects in the package. “We are pleased to have worked closely with the Legislature to sign this bill into law and continue investing in information technology improvements, public safety upgrades and food security across the commonwealth,” said Gov. Baker. “We are continuing to support critical capital investments that modernize our technology infrastructure and allow us to deliver eff ective and reliable government services for the people of Massachusetts during the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic.” “The Legislature is using a new tactic, which is to borrow money in hopes the public doesn’t catch on,” said Paul Craney, Executive Director of the Massachusetts Fiscal Alliance. “If this package was funded through tax hikes, there would have been a more robust debate for how to pay for it.

The package also includes hundreds of local projects successfully sought by individual legislators for their districts including $500,000 for New Bedford’s Buttonwood Park Zoological Society’s infrastructure improvements for the animal ambassador and nature connection education center projects; $61,200 to update the town hall conference room’s streaming technology for the local cable services in Stoughton; $15,000 for Medfi eld for the implementation of an electronic payroll program; and $1 million for Everett for electronic learning devices for all Everett students and virtual professional development, training and remote learning support for their teachers.

Joseph Boncore Yes IMPROVEMENTS TO LOCAL AND REGIONAL PUBLIC HEALTH SYSTEM (H 4503) House 149-0, (Senate on a voice vote without a roll call), approved a law to improve the delivery of public health services through enhanced collaboration between local boards of health and regional health districts. A key provision creates a State Action for Public Health Excellence Program to encourage boards of health and regional health districts to adopt practices that will improve the effi ciency and eff ectiveness of the delivery of local public health services. The program would also provide grants to improve these health systems and requires not less than 33 percent of the grants go to cities and towns with a median household income below the state average. Other provisions include the state providing at least four annual free public health educational and training opportunities to boards of health and regional health district offi cials; and setting minimum standards for local public health services. Each of the state’s 351 cities and towns has its own board of health which is designed to ensure many health-related items including food safety in restaurants, response to public health emergencies, housing code violations and water quality at beaches and pools. Cities and towns have vastly diff erent staffi ng levels and most small towns lack a full-time staff . “Public health departments of the 351 communities of the commonwealth deal with issues seen and unseen across a wide range, from water quality and effective sanitation to substance use disorders and suicide prevention,” said the bill’s co-sponsor Rep. Denise Garlick (D-Needham). “These are the issues and concerns of the quality of life in Massachusetts. This bill is vitally important and timely given our current concerns over emergency preparedness with infectious diseases such as … [the coronavirus].” “This legislation will work toward ensuring each resident of the commonwealth has access to the public health services they need to live a healthy life, regardless of their zip code or the size of their community,” said co-sponsor Rep. Hannah Kane (R-Shrewsbury). “[The bill] will signifi cantly strengthen our local and regional health systems by tackling many of the fi nancial and operational burdens municipalities face.” (A “Yes” vote is for the bill.) Rep. Bob DeLeo Ye s Rep. RoseLee Vincent Ye s HELP CITY AND TOWN GOVERNMENTS (H 4777) House 156-0, (Senate on a voice vote without a roll call), approved a law that would lower the number of voters needed at an open town meeting in order to have a quorum. Other provisions include allowing virtual representative town meetings to be held online and allowing towns to hold town meetings outside the geographic limits of the town if the select board determines that it is not possible to conduct town meetings within the geographic limits of the town that ensures health and safety. Another key section allows a mayor who is unable to submit an annual budget for fi scal year 2021 to the city council within 170 days after his or her inauguration to submit the budget to the city council within 30 days after the termination of the governor’s declaration of emergency, or on July 31, 2020, whichever is earlier. Supporters said it is essential to provide municipalities with the fl exibility they need to run their government. They said the bill would allow cities and towns to function while still being fi scally responsible and maintaining the health and safety of voters. (A «Yes» vote is for the bill.) Rep. Bob DeLeo Ye s Rep. RoseLee Vincent Ye s MOSQUITO CONTROL (H 4843) House 158-0, (Senate on a voice vote without a roll call), approved a law that would grant additional tools to the State Reclamation and Mosquito Control Board to combat mosquito-borne illnesses including Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE) and West Nile Virus (WNV). The measure gives the board the authority to take preventative, management and eradicative mosquito control methods to address the problem when the risk is elevated. The board must notify local authorities, property owners, agricultural entities and other stakeholders about spraying plans, products and timelines. Other provisions include allowing cities and towns to opt out of

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, OCTOBER 9, 2020 Page 15 RESERVED SPECIAL POWERS OF APPOINTMENT O ften times, individuals decide to transfer assets in order to protect them against a possible nursing home stay. Due to the risk of losing assets, transfers often occur prior to when the transferor would prefer. An often-used technique used in drafting to create a bigger incentive for such transfers is the insertion of a provision in a deed or in an irrevocable Trust reserving a limited or special power of appointment (SPOA). A SPOA is a power which enables someone at a later date to change the original disposition of the real estate if a deed is the relevant document or the Trust principal if an irrevocable Trust is the relevant document. The SPOA is reserved by the individual transferring an interest in real estate or transferring any type of property to an irrevocable Trust. In 2017, the Massachusetts Appeals Court in the case of Skye v. Hession held that a deed containing such a reserved SPOA was a valid transfer. The remainder person (the person receiving the Trust principal upon the death of the lifetime benefi ciary or the person who the real estate was deeded to) has a vested remainder interest subject to divestment. If the SPOA is never exercised, the remainder person will end up taking title as originally planned. The pure defi nition of a SPOA is that it cannot be exercised in favor of the person creating the power, his creditors, his estate, or the creditors of his estate. This is important for MassHealth purposes in order to not have the underlying asset(s) countable for eligibility purposes. The MassHealth applicant’s spouse should also be excluded as a person who might benefi t from the exerHelping Seniors Recognize Fake News and Propaganda Dear Savvy Senior, cise of the SPOA. As long as the property in question is vested in persons other than the applicant or spouse, and as long as neither of them have any power to revest the property in themselves, the property should be deemed transferred for purposes of beginning the five year look back period. If nursing home level care is not needed within fi ve years from the date of transfer, the property should be protected. Furthermore, any subsequent exercise of the SPOA itself after the five- year period has elapsed should in no way create any additional period of MassHealth ineligibility. Joseph D.

John Mahoney (D-Worcester). “This legislation thoughtfully addresses the concerns of public health experts, environmental health advocates, local boards of health and our municipalities as we work to mitigate this concerning public health matter.” “With this bill, we’re ensuring that the Department of Public Health can respond to the most imminent health concerns posed by EEE, while moving the commonwealth toward a more sustainable, comprehensive, and environmentally protective plan for the future,” said Rep. Carolyn Dykema (D-Holliston). “Cases of EEE and WNV are on the rise and we need to be vigilant,» said Rep. Josh Cutler (D-Duxbury). “Mosquitoes don’t stop at the town line, so having a coordinated, statewide approach is necessary. This legislation also ensures that voices of farmers, and the impacts on our water supplies and organic agriculture are included.” During the hearing on the original version of the legislation in May, many groups and individuals testifi ed against the bill. They expressed concern about land, rivers and wetlands conservation, organic agriculture, wildlife and exposure to toxic chemicals. About 20 minutes after the House approved the bill, public health offi cials announced that this year’s fi rst case of WNV has been found in mosquitoes collected in Belmont. No human or animal cases have yet been identifi ed. The DPH has advised residents to protect themselves by using mosquito repellents with an EPA-registered active ingredient; wearing long pants, a long-sleeved shirt and socks when outdoors; keeping mosquitoes out of your home by repairing any holes in your screens and making sure they are tightly attached to all your doors and windows; and removing areas of standing water around your home.

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 September 28-October 2, the House met for a total of 27 minutes while the Senate met for a total of 24 minutes. Mon.

My 75-year-old mother shares a lot of misinformation with her family and friends that she sees on Facebook. I’ve talked to her about it, but for some reason she has a diffi cult time deciphering real news from fake news and propaganda. Frustrated Daughter Dear Frustrated, Unfortunately, the digital misinformation problem your mom is experiencing is not uncommon. According to researchers from Princeton and New York University, people aged 65 and older are up to seven times more likely to share fake news and dubious links on social media than their younger counterparts. Why? There are several theories. The fi rst is that many seniors started using social media sites like Facebook only within the past fi ve or six years and may lack the digital literacy skills to identify false or misleading content. Some other possible theories are that most seniors experience some cognitive decline as they age, making them more likely to fall for hoaxes. Many older Americans also suff er from chronic loneliness which can cause them to share misinformation as an attempt to make connections with other people. And studies have shown that older people are generally more trusting than younger generations, which can make them more gullible. All this is particularly concerning now as we sit in the midst of a global health pandemic and a 2020 election season, both of which are ripe with misinformation, rumors and conspiracy theories. And seniors are prime targets of this false/misleading information because they are much more likely to vote than their younger cohorts and are much more vulnerable to getting sick and dying if they contract COVID-19. Where to Get Help To help your mom detect and combat online misinformation there are several great resources she can turn to that off er free courses and tips. One is MediaWise for Seniors, a project of the Poynter Institute, which off ers two free online courses to help seniors detect and combat online misinformation – see Poynter.org/mediawise-for-seniors. The fi rst four-week course has already fi lled up, but your mom can still enroll in a self-directed course called “Hands-On Lessons to Separate Fact and Fiction Online.” It is hosted by Christiane Amanpour and Joan Lunden, and is scheduled to begin Sept. 24, but she can take the course anytime. In addition, Poynter has worked with AARP to produce Fact Tracker interactive videos and a webinar on spotting and fi ltering misinformation at AARP. org/facttracker. Some other free course options you should look into include Senior Planet, which is offering a one-hour online course on “How to Spot Fake News” at SeniorPlanet.org. The News Literacy Project that provides the Checkology virtual classroom, which was initially created for middle and high school students, is now off ering an independent learners option that is ideal for older adults – see Get.Checkology.org. Their lessons will help your mom detect the difference between news, opinion and propaganda. Coursera, a free world-wide online learning platform, which offers an in-depth six-week course called “Making Sense of the News: News Literacy Lessons for Digital Citizens,” which she can access at Coursera.org/ learn/news-literacy. There are also many good websites, like PolitiFact.com, Snopes.com and FactCheck.org that will let your mom fact check a story to help her identify fact versus fi ction. These sites have most likely already fact-checked the latest viral claim to pop up in her news feed. Send your senior questions to: Savvy Senior, P.O.

Devoted daughter Education training organization looks to bolster virtual learning By Christopher Roberson T he Boston-based education training organization 1647 recently launched its annual fundraising campaign to improve the relationship between teachers and families at a time when it is most critical. Director Ann Walsh said the objective this year is to raise $5,000 by the end of December. If that goal is reached, an anonymous donor has pledged to match that amount to bring the total up to $10,000. Anyone interested in making a donation can do so at www.1647.org/donate. “School and home are one in the same right now,” said Walsh. “You can’t do school without families.” She said that thus far virtual learning has been both a “blessing and a challenge.” “There’s so many little moves you have to make for virtual learning to work,” she said. “Everybody is well-beyond capacity; everyone I know is exhausted.” Therefore, 1647 will be hosting a virtual Family Engagement Roundtable on October 22 from 4-5 p.m. “You really want to be laser focused,” said Walsh. “You don’t want to waste time on anything right now.” She also said that all of her coaches are parents themselves. “We’re able to give really authentic training,” she OBITUARIES Alice Marie (Manning) Schmitt to the late Joseph P. & Margaret E.

The standards statewide are one year, so citywide, I get that, but I do want to bring up some unintended consequences.” Some of those consequences included the aforementioned ward redistricting, as well as the status of college students who may originally be from Revere who return to the city and may have their college town listed as their primary residence but want to get involved in city politics. “I just think that the voters are smart enough to elect someone who does or does not have a vested interest in the community,” Gravellese said. “I don’t necessarily have a problem citywide; there is precedent, but doing it based on the wards makes no sense.” Rotondo noted that there have been cases in the past where people have run for offi ce in Revere while not living in the city. “At one point or another, there have been various councillors who have lived in Nahant, so this is something that is vitally needed,” said Rotondo. Ward 5 Councillor John Powers said he has no issue with the proposed ward council residency requirement. “Requiring someone to live in the ward for one year, what’s wrong with that?” he said. “Don’t you want to elect a person who knows the area they are representing?”                     KITCHEN CABINETS To Look Like New 508-840-0501 FURNITURE STRIP & FINISH Like us on Facebook advocate newspaper Facebook.com/ Advocate.news.ma Gina S Soldano REALTOR® ABR®, AHWD, e-PRO®, GREEN, MRP®, PSA®, SFR®, SRES®, SRS® Broker/Associate Millennium Real Estate 291 Ferry Street, Everett, MA 02149 (857) 272-4270 Gina.Soldano@era.com gsoldanorealtor.com AAA Service • Lockouts Trespass Towing • Roadside Service Junk Car Removal 617-387-6877 26 Garvey St., Everett MDPU 28003 ICCMC 251976 We follow Social Distancing Guidelines!
