Have a Safe & Happy Thanksgiving! v Vol. 31, No.47 -FREEwww.advoca Councillors debate retail marijuana sales revenue By Barbara Taormina C ity councillors are grappling with the idea of opening the door to recreational marijuana shops. The council’s Economic Development Subcommittee has started reviewing the fi nancial benefi t the recreational cannabis industry could bring to the city. Last week, the subcommittee heard from Jordon Avery, President and CEO of Mass Green Retail which operates a recreational cannabis dispensary in Lynn on the Saugus line. Avery focused primarily on the tax revenue the city would receive by permitting recreational marijuana. In 2016, Revere voted 10,184 to 9,142 against legalizing adult recreational marijuana. The council followed up with a ban on recreational adult use marijuana sales in September 2017. “A lot has changed since then,” Avery told councillors. “Weed is legal and it’s here to stay. It’s important to take a deep look into it.” Avery suggested putting the question back on the ballot and letting Revere reconsider the question. He also listed a number of nearby communities and the significant amounts to tax revenue they were taking in through recreational marijuana sales. He suggested that Revere could see as much as $1.5 to $2 million in tax revenue from recreational marijuana. “Folks are leaving your city and going to places like Chelsea and coming to Lynn and ultimately those cities and towns are generating the tax revenue that will impact the community,” Avery told the committee. Revere has approved a medical marijuana dispensary and Councillor Richard Serino questioned how much tax CANNABIS | SEE Page 20 ocatenew .net Free Every Friday 781-286-8500 Wednesday, November 23, 2022 Football Pats look to continue winning ways on Thanksgiving TEAM LEADERS: Patriots Captains from left, Chris Cassidy, Capt.

(Advocate fi le photo) By Greg Phipps W ith any chance for an above-.500 season no longer in the cards, the Revere High School football team would like to end the 2022 season on a winning note in the annual Thanksgiving Day game against the longtime rival Winthrop Vikings. This year's contest will be played at Miller Field in Winthrop (scheduled 10 a.m. kickoff ). Though the Vikings own a commanding 57-32 advantage (with three ties) in the series, which is one of the oldest Thanksgiving matchups statewide, the Patriots have gotten the better of it in recent years. Revere has come out on top in the last fi ve meetings since 2016. The game was not played in 2020 due to the fall season being cancelled because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

But this is a perfect time to consider whether we are thanksgiving or ungrateful people. Being grateful isn’t natural. Gratitude, for all its merit, is not something easily embraced or practiced, especially as we all face life’s challenges. It is easier to complain than to be grateful. One of the biggest problems we all have is pride. We say to ourselves, “I deserve better.” “This is wrong.” “You’ve got to be kidding me.” “Not me, I’m not due this.” How often do you feel grateful? But more importantly, how often do you pause to sincerely express it? If we are honest with ourselves, the answer is not enough—not even close. The parable in Luke 17:11-17 speaks of 10 men with leprosy. A leper’s life was unbearable, and the physical ramifi cations were horrendous. Thought to be highly infectious at the time, this disease attacks the body with grotesque damage. Sores, missing fi ngers, missing toes, and damaged limbs were commonplace. They emanated a smell of rotting and decaying fl esh, which was overwhelmingly repulsive. They were the walking dead, and due to these devastating infi rmities and perceptions, they were despised as social outcasts. Whenever they encountered anyone, they were required to yell, “unclean, unclean.” This account in Luke tells us that 10 men approached Jesus from afar and shouted to him, requesting that he take pity on them. He told them to show themselves to the priests: “And as they went, they were cleansed. One of them, when he saw that he was healed, came back, praising God in a loud voice. He threw himself at Jesus’ feet and thanked him—and he was a Samaritan.” Then Jesus asked penetrating and heart-revealing questions: “Were not all ten cleansed? Where are the other nine? Was no one found to return and give praise to God except for this foreigner?” Only one of the 10 lepers was truly thankful. Think about it. All 10 lepers were healed, but only one returned to glorify God and fell down to worship Him in gratitude. Let’s ask ourselves: are we like the self-absorbed nine who did not return, but whose lives were literally released from a death sentence? Or are we like the one who glorifi es God and falls down before Him for what He has done? If we search our heart and confront the stark reality, we are more like the other nine than the one who returned. This parable teaches us that God desires us to express our thankfulness to Him for who He is and all He does in our lives. When life tells you to be bitter, envious, and depressed, choose to be thankful. Choose to be the Samaritan who returned and gave thanks. No matter the situation in GRATEFUL | SEE Page 15

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 23, 2022 Page 3 Assistant Speaker Clark announces candidacy for Democratic Whip “Effective leadership is not about individual ambition but our collective good. I will use my voice at the leadership table to bring people and solutions together.” On November 18, Assistant Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives Katherine Clark (5th District of Massachusetts) announced her candidacy for the position of Democratic Whip. In a letter to colleagues, she outlined her goals: delivering results for the American people, empowering Members, and unifying the Democratic Caucus. Dear Colleague, Americans have rejected Republican extremism and affirmed our commitment to working people. By standing with women, for democracy, and for everyone’s economic security, we have defi ed expectations and secured a historically KATHERINE CLARK Congresswoman close margin in the House. Now, we must be tough, agile, and united to stop the Republican House Majority’s dangerous agenda and take back the House. I am ready to guide this critical work as our next Democratic Clarification of Story on November 11, 2022 I n a story published on page one in the Revere Advocate on November 11, 2022, titled, “Revere votes Healey for Governor,” a misstatement in both the fi rst and the last paragraph was made. To clarify: All vote by mail ballots received by 5 p.m. on Election Day were included in the unoffi cial results posted on the City website: https://cdn.branchcms.com/ GB7r14nbKy-1182/docs/Unoffi cial-Election-Results-StateElection-11-8-22.pdf. These results also included all early voting ballots and any ballots received in the offi ce or the City Hall drop box by 5 p.m. on Election Day. Any ballots received after 5 p.m. on Election Day that are valid (postmarked by 8 p.m. that day or received in person by 8 p.m.) will be counted at a public meeting next Monday, November 21 in City Hall. They will also count any overseas ballots received in a timely manner. The Advocate apologizes for the error.—JDM Whip, and I ask for your support. Delivering Results: We must be disciplined about our mission and message to beat back the GOP while advancing our shared values. I will fight for our agenda and your priorities while running a strategic defense. You can trust me to listen to all corners of the Caucus, be results-oriented, and be resolute in my commitment to our values. Communication and innovation are going to be critical to our eff ectiveness. We must continue to modernize and increase effi ciency and responsiveness to meet the needs of members and our constituents. Empowering Members: Our collective strength comes from you. Your wealth of talent and experience are assets, and your ability to voice the needs of your constituents is our best compass as we chart a path forward. Like us on Facebook advocate newspaper Facebook.com/ Advocate.news.ma I will develop a strategy with you focused on the needs of your district. Members across the Caucus must be involved in the decision-making process and take a prominent role. I will help us deliver results while promoting and protecting you. Uniting Together: Our success will require a unifi ed front. We are a team, and we must leverage our strength to win. Effective leadership is not about individual ambition, but our collective good. It is about truly listening and understanding what each member needs to be successful. I will use my voice at the leadership table to bring people and solutions together. Time and time again, House Democrats have proven that when we stand together, we can overcome great obstacles and secure wins for the American people. It is an incredible honor to serve with you, and I look forward to discussing my candidacy and earning your support. Warm Regards, Katherine M. Clark Lawrence A.

Page 4 THE REVERE ADVOCATE – WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 23, 2022 Norman Joseph Gautreau and The Art That Immortalized Revere By Christina Puleo Fireworks at Revere Beach (1) Watercolor, 26x18 N orman Joseph Gautreau was born on January 13th, 1917, in Lynn, Massachusetts. Ever since he was a child, Norman enjoyed going to the movies and sketching his favorite scenes. This was only the beginning of what would be an accomplished life. After marrying his wife, Rose, and welcoming two children to their family, he traveled to Italy to fi ght during World War II. He returned shortly after, adding a third edition to the household. In 1949, the Gautreau’s moved to Fenno Street in Revere and their fourth child was born. Today, their family lives on through in-laws, nine grandchildren, and nine greatgrandchildren. Norman diversifi ed his art by depicting various memorable life experiences. He has painted many places across several countries, but also local landmarks and occasions. These include the Saugus Iron Works, the Revere Library, 2000. Watercolor, 26x16 Boston Marathon, the Chelsea Fire of 1973, and even Ted Williams at Fenway Park. His art has been featured in prominent places: Cardinal Cushing’s portrait in The Vatican, “the Cyclone Roller Coaster of Revere Beach” on the cover of Boston Globe Magazine, and “Boston Bruins vs. Montreal Canadiens” as centerfold in the Boston Herald. Through his depictions of Revere Beach’s fascinating and nostalgic sights, as well as local landmarks like Revere Public Library, Gautreau has immortalized the City of Revere. His art currently resides in Boston’s Statehouse, noteworthy colleges like MIT and Harvard, and numerous libraries in Massachusetts. He received Citizen of the Year in 1997 from the City of Revere, cementing his importance to our city. The Revere Society for Cultural and Historic Preservation wants to honor Gautreau’s contributions to our community through our Annual Holiday Gathering. On December 3rd , the Museum will open for light refreshments and off er commemorative souvenirs showcasing Gautreau’s art. This year, frameable art prints, gift cards, and Christmas ornaments of Gautreau’s painting of the Revere Public Library will be available. His other works can also be visited in our Revere Beach exhibit. For further questions, please contact us at (781) 286-2226 or rschpmuseum@comcast.net. Thank you!

First would be my staff . In a City Hall full of talented and hard-working people, they are right at the front of the line. I also need to acknowledge Like us on Facebook advocate newspaper Facebook.com/Advocate.news.ma City of Revere 10TH ANNUAL Santa WalkSantaWalk PRISCILLA NICKERSON MEMORIAL L I my Board of Election Commissioners. I couldn’t have done my job over the last year without their unfailing support and encouragement. And I especially want to thank my poll workers – wardens, clerks, and inspectors – who are the frontline workers for Early Voting and on Election Day. They do their jobs with professionalism and a smile, and the voters of Revere are lucky to have them. We also have wonderful partners outside City government who provide us with polling locations. Special thanks to Point of Pines Yacht Club, Jack Satter House, Carl Hyman Towers, and the Turkish Cultural Center. Our other polling locations are at the Revere schools, and for their assistance I am very grateful to the School Committee, Superintendent Kelly, and the excellent custodian staff at all the building we use. Finally, and not at all least, I owe special thanks to Mayor Arrigo and his staff , the City Council and the City Clerk, our great DPW workers, and the many in City Hall who support our eff orts every day. These are challenging times for election workers everywhere, both in the aftermath of the pandemic and in a climate of misinformation about the process itself. The Commonwealth passed a broad election reform law earlier this year. The VOTES Act expands access to voting while also ensuring the integrity of the process. It’s frankly a lot more work for the Election Department, but it’s important work and it’s worth it. Finally, thanks to the voters of Revere for their kindness to me over the past year. I don’t have deep Revere roots like some, but I appreciate being made part of the family in 2022! Happy holidays to all and best wishes for 2023! Sincerely, Paul Fahey, MPA Election Commissioner City of Revere RevereTV Spotlight H appy Thanksgiving from RevereTV! We hope you Donate!

City acquires McMackin Little League Baseball Field By Barbara Taormina R evere scored a victory last week when, after years of negotiating, the city acquired McMackin Field. Revere Little League agreed to sign the fi eld over to the city so that the costly work of restoring the site can fi nally get started. The field opened in 1952, and for more than 60 years it was home to generations of Revere Little League Teams. And it was the envy of Little Leaguers throughout the state. The fi eld had lights, a concession stands, concrete bleachers and was known as Little Fenway by the players. But in 2013, Revere Little League abandoned the site, and for years it languished and became an overgrown. flooded mess. Members of a Facebook group, Save McMackin Field, share memories, post old photos and blame the demise of the fi eld on a water and sewer project on Winthrop Avenue that led to chronic fl ooding. Some blame also goes to the condo complex built behind the field. But the city did not own McMackin, and could not move forward with clean ups or repairs. But that changed last week when the city acquired McMackin Field. Ward 1 Councilor Joanne McKenna announced the good news at last week's council meeting. "Last week, the city acquired McMackin Field after years of negotiations," said McKenna. "It really took a village to get things done." McKenna gave props to Mayor Brian Arrigo, Revere General Counsel Cheryl McCormick, fellow councillor Patrick Keefe and other councilors who helped get the acquisition over the fi nish line. Mayor Brian Arrigo also touted the McMackin Field news during his Community Conversations broadcast. FIELD | SEE Page 15 1. November 25 is Black Friday; in the 1800s, what did Black Friday mean? 2.

" But we got to the point fi nally where they made the decision to grant us access and ownership to the McMackin Field. So now, the eyesore is my and the city's problem." And it's not an easy problem to solve. Professionals who have assessed the fi eld have said it will need to be raised six inches to solve the problem with fl ooding.

"Whether it would be baseball or soccer, I mean there is a high demand for soccer right now... but going forward this is going to cost millions of dollars," said McKenna. "We have to get it up to code on ADA regulations and we probably have to lift it because there are water problems." On Facebook, former McMackin Field players thanked city offi - cials for fi nally getting this Revere landmark on the road to recovery.

Revere enters this year's game at 4-6 overall and has lost two straight after making this year's state Div. 3 playoff tournament. The Patriots lost to Plymouth South in the fi rst round of the tourney and suff ered a non-playoff setback to Masconomet in their most recent contest at home. Led by quarterback Carlos Rizo and off ensive threat Sami Elasri, Revere is hoping to get its off ense cranked up against a Winthrop squad that comes in sporting a 6-4 record. Putting up points has boded well for the Patriots this year. In its four wins, Revere has averaged over 40 points a game. At the same time, the Patriots have put up just 12 points a game in their six defeats. Strong defensive eff orts have keyed the wins as well. Three of Revere's victories were of the shutout variety. Winthrop should prove to be a stiff opponent this Thanksgiving. The Vikings made the state Div. 6 tournament this year and lost in the first round to Cardinal Spellman. Revere and Winthrop have faced just one common opponent this season. Both teams played 9-1 Peabody. The Vikings fell by a 28-7 margin back on Oct. 14 and the Patriots were shutout 40-0 in the season opener in early September.

It happens when the arteries that carry blood to the legs and feet become narrowed or clogged over the years with fatty deposits or plaque, causing poor circulation. But you also need to be aware that because PAD is a systemic disease, people that have it are also much more likely to have clogged arteries in other areas of the body like the heart, neck and brain, which greatly increase the risks of heart attack or stroke. Few Symptoms Unfortunately, PAD goes undiagnosed and untreated way too often because most people that have it experience few, if any symptoms. The most common symptom, however, is similar to what you’re experiencing: pain and cramping in the hip, thigh or calf muscles, especially when walking or exercising but usually disappears after resting for a few minutes. Another reason PAD is underdiagnosed is because many people assume that aches and pains go along with aging and simply live with it instead of reporting it to their doctor. Other possible symptoms to be aware of include leg numbness or weakness, coldness or skin color changes in the lower legs and feet, or ulcers or sores on the legs or feet that don’t heal. Are You at Risk? Like most other health conditions, the risk of developing PAD increases with age. Those most vulnerable are people over the age of 50 who smoke or used to smoke, have elevated cholesterol, high blood pressure, diabetes, are overweight, or have a family history of PAD, heart attack or stroke. African Americans are also twice as likely to have PAD as Caucasians. If you’re experiencing any symptoms or if you’re at increased risk of PAD, you need to be tested by your doctor or a vascular specialist. He or she will probably perform a quick and painless ankle-brachial index test, which is done by measuring your blood pressure in your ankle as well as your arm and compare the two numbers. Your doctor may also do imaging tests such as ultrasound, magnetic resonance angiography (MRA), and computed tomographic (CT) angiography. With early detection, many cases of PAD can be treated with lifestyle modifi cations including an improved diet, increased physical activity and smoking cessation. If lifestyle changes aren’t enough, your doctor may also prescribe medicine to prevent blood clots, lower blood pressure and cholesterol, and control pain and other symptoms. And for severe PAD, the treatment options are angioplasty (infl ating a tiny balloon in the artery to restore blood flow then removed), the insertion or a stent to reopen the artery, or a graft bypass to reroute blood around the blockage.

Five District Attorney’s Offi ces will use Funds for Training, Investigations and Victim Services BOSTON – The Baker-Polito Administration this past week awarded grant funding to fi ve Massachusetts prosecutor’s offi ces to increase their capacity to investigate and prosecute human trafficking while improving services for victims of exploitation. The 2023 Human Trafficking Enforcement and Training Grant Program was announced in September of this year. The program supports efforts by district attorneys and their law enforcement partners to investigate and prosecute human traffi cking, strengthen community relationships and expand the use of victim-centered and multi-disciplinary approaches to serving traffi cking victims. “For the past eight years, our administration has focused on supporting a comprehensive approach to combatting human traffi cking, and we are proud to sustain that eff ort with these latest grants. This grant funding aims to further ensure that law enforcement and service providers are equipped to provide victims with the help they need while holding acRecipient Berkshire County District Attorney’s Offi ce Hampden County District Attorney’s Offi ce Middlesex County District Attorney’s Offi ce Plymouth County District Attorney’s Offi ce Suff olk County District Attorney’s Offi ce Total countable those who would commit these traumatic crimes,” said Governor Charlie Baker. “Providing trauma-informed, victim-centered services to survivors of exploitation is vital not only to rebuilding lives, but to building the relationships necessary to hold accountable those who commit these crimes. These funds help ensure that prosecutors have the resources necessary to combat human traffi cking in our communities,” said Lt. Gov. Karyn Polito. Funding is being awarded to the Berkshire County District Attorney, Hampden County District Attorney, Middlesex County District Attorney, Plymouth County District Attorney and Suff olk County District Attorney. The funded programs will build upon the success of pilot programs launched in the Hampden County District Attorney and Worcester County District Attorney offices through the FFY 2019 Improving Outcomes for Child and Youth Victims of Human Traffi cking Grant. These federal funds were awarded by the Offi ce of Victims of Crime (OVC), which is part of the Department of Justice’s Offi ce of Justice Programs. The Human Trafficking Enforcement and Training Grant Program is administered by the Offi ce of Grants and Research (OGR), a state agency that is a part of the Executive Offi ce of Public Safety and Security. “These funds will ensure that prosecutors and their law enforcement partners have the capacity to protect the most vulnerable members of our community from exploitation. They also allow law enforcement to expand services and strengthen relationships with the communities they serve,” said Public Safety and Security Secretary Terrence Reidy. “I commend each of the district attorney’s offi ces receiving these grants for the excellent work they are doing to combat human traffi cking and serve victims of these terrible off enses. My offi ce is committed to helping build on the success of these eff orts and expand services to survivors,” said OGR Executive Director Kevin Stanton.

Bruce Tarr (R-Gloucester). “We know that with state revenues wildly exceeding what we need to operate, and a fi scal year 2023 budget spending increase of more than $2 billion, we have the capacity to help families, seniors, students, commuters and those who depend on childcare.” “The tax break package presented by my colleagues and I would have eased the burden on working families and provided urgently needed fi nancial relief from the economic challenges we continue to face,” said Sen. Patrick O’Connor (R-Weymouth). “With record prices for gas, housing, childcare and basic necessities, we need to act immediately to enact tax reforms to ease the blow on our residents and protect those who simply cannot aff ord the looming changes our economy will experience.” “The Joint Committee on Revenue is reviewing tax reduction bills Senate 4-35 rejected an amendment that would reduce from 20 percent to 10 percent the proposed gaming excise tax for in-person betting and from 35 percent to 12.5 percent the tax for mobile bets and daily fantasy sports. “This amendment creates a much more practical accounting for taxes that refl ects the market realities that are present in the sports wagering industry across the nation,” said amendment sponsor Sen. Bruce Tarr (R-Gloucester). “If you want to have a successful sports wagering business in the commonwealth then the tax rates in the bill have to be more realistic and practical.” Senate Ways and Means chair Mike Rodrigues (D-Westport) urged senators to defeat the amendment. “One of the missions of this particular bill was to provide the best benefi t for the commonwealth’s citizens and taxpayers, not the best benefi t for the online gaming operators that want to work here.” (A “Yes” vote is for the reduction. A “No” vote is against it). Sen. Lydia Edwards No and the full Senate has committed to consideration of a comprehensive and thoughtful revenue proposal, including tax reductions,” said Sen. John Keenan (D-Quincy) who voted against the amendment. “The Senate President has already announced that the Senate is taking up a tax relief package shortly,” said amendment opponent Sen. Adam Hinds (D-Pittsfield). “That is what we prefer to focus on. We want to be absolutely certain that tax cuts go to those who need it most, not just giveaways to the most wealthy.” (A “Yes” vote is for the tax cuts. A “No” vote is against the tax cuts). Sen. Lydia Edwards No MORE TAX RELIEF (S 3018) Senate 7-31, rejected an amendment that would reduce the shortterm capital gains tax from 12 percent to 5 percent; increase the noincome tax status threshold from $8,000 to $12,500; and increase the rental deduction cap from $3,000 to $5,000, instead of just to $4,000 which the original bill provides. Amendment supporters said that the state is sitting on a surplus of more than $3 billion and should return more of that money to taxpayers. They argued the state can easily aff ord these additional tax cuts that would help taxpayers during this diffi cult economic time of rising prices of gas, food and just about everything else. They noted that raising the no income tax threshold would align the state with the federal government and provide direct relief to more than 234,000 low-income Massachusetts filers who would no longer have to pay any state income taxes. Amendment opponents said the state cannot aff ord the loss of millions of dollars in revenue from this additional tax relief. They listed the many tax cuts that are already in the bill and said the amendment is not necessary. (A “Yes” vote is for the additional tax relief. A “No” vote is against it.) Sen. Lydia Edwards No ALSO UP ON BEACON HILL PROHIBIT REVOCATION OF PROFESSIONAL LICENSES IF A PERSON DEFAULTS ON A STUDENT LOAN (H 5195) – The Senate approved legislation that would repeal current state laws which create professional licensure consequences for anyone who defaults on their student loan. Under existing law, a borrower’s stateissued professional or occupational certifi cate, registration or license can be suspended, revoked or cancelled if the borrower is in default on an education loan. The House has already approved the measure and only fi nal approval is necessary in each branch prior to the measure going to Gov. Charlie Baker. “As a former seventh grade public school teacher and an education attorney for more than a decade, I’ve come to expect Massachusetts to be identifi ed as a pioneer in a promising practice or out in front on an education issue,” said sponsor Rep. Kate Lipper-Garabedian (D-Melrose). “So I was quite surprised to fi nd that Massachusetts is one of the only states that mandates the denial of professional licenses to student loan defaulters. This draconian approach prevents an individual from access to the profession for which he or she has trained and has the perverse result of furthering hindering their ability to earn a living and making it more diffi cult to make loan payments. And as families work to recover from the fi nancial fallout of the pandemic, the last thing the state should do is deny them access to their professional pursuits because of student loan defaults.” SPEECH PATHOLOGISTS (H 5094) – Gov. Baker signed into law a bill that would allow fully licensed speech pathologists to be granted a provisional license to practice in Massachusetts during their 36-month fellowship. Currently, Massachusetts is one of only eight states that does not provide a provisional license that allows their students to begin practicing during their fellowship. Supporters said that by forbidding the right to practice during their 36-month fellowship, the state runs the risk of losing professionals educated in the Bay State to other states where they become valuable members of their community and welcome additions to the economy. “There needed to be a regulatory fi x to the commonwealth’s issue of losing new speech pathologists to other states as they begin their careers,” said sponsor Rep. Paul McMurtry (D-Dedham). “This legislation assures that there will be opportunities here when they leave their graduate programs and enter the workforce.” CELL PHONE SAFETY (S 187) – A bill that would require all mobile phones sold or leased in Massachusetts to disclose the dangers of mobile phones clearly and conspicuously on product packaging has died after being shuttled off to a study committee. The notice to consumers would read: “To assure safety, the Federal Government requires that cell phones meet radio frequency (RF) exposure guidelines. If you carry or use your phone in a pocket or the phone is otherwise in contact with your body when the phone is on and connected to a wireless network, you may exceed the federal guidelines for exposure to RF radiation. Refer to the instructions in your phone or user manual for information about how to use your phone safely.” “Studies by the National Institutes of Health, National Institute of Environmental Health Science have identifi ed potential health risks in regard to Radio Frequency exposure,” said sponsor Sen. Julian Cyr (D-Truro). “States are in the position to provide guidance on steps to reduce exposure and protect the public’s health. I am always seeking avenues to prioritize public health and safety and will continue to do so as we review what legislation I will be refi lling next session.” PRIVACY OF LOTTERY WINNERS (S BEACON | SEE Page 20

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 23, 2022 OBITUARIES Page 19 Pasquale “Pat” Attenasio O f Revere. Age 87, passed away peacefully November 19 while surrounded by family in the comfort of his home. He was born October 2, 1935 in Revere to the late Vincent and Mary (Quasarano) Attenasio. Beloved husband of 65 years to Joyce (Prendable). Pat is survived by his beloved children Vincent Attenasio and wife Lori of Marlboro, Dorothy Deveau and husband Joe of Peabody, Joyce Horgan and her late husband James of Revere, and Susan Gravellese and husband James of Revere; nine grandchildren, Danielle, Nicolette, Amanda, B.J, Pat, Andrew, Sean, Joey and Kristina; eight great grandchildren, Kelsea, Meghan, C.J, Mikayla, Anya, Austin, Brookelynn, and the late R.J; And two great-great grandchildren, Aiden and Aurora. Also, a beloved brother to Annette, Marie, Leona, Vincent, and the late Richard. Pasquale, better known as Papa, was a great man, wellrespected all-over Revere and beyond. He was a devoted member of the clubs all around the city, including the Elks, the Moose, the VFW, the Mottolo Post, the Sons of Italy, and the Patriots Civic Club, where he was a past president. Papa loved horse racing, from watching races and picking winners with Joey from the roof at Meadies, to taking the boys to Suffolk Downs and having them scout the horses, to his many trips to Saratoga with Sean, including a visit this past summer. Horse racing was part of his bond with his grandsons and the entire family, all of whom share great memories of spending days at the track. There were many times we walked into a bar, restaurant or club with Papa and people turned and said “there he is – the legend” or referred to him as “the godfather.” Papa was revered all over our community, well-known for his generosity, his good humor, and dedication to making sure everyone was always having a good time. There was nothing more important to Papa than family, and no more cherished memory than spending every Christmas Eve together. It was a special day for all, but especially Papa. Papa loved to put on his Santa hat and create mischief – teasing the kids by making them wait hours to get their gifts, or “accidentally” giving kids the wrong gifts or even taking them for himself. He loved watching the kids eventually open and enjoy their presents. He also loved to notso-secretly pass out envelopes to the older grandkids, making them promise not to tell mom and dad and more importantly Nana. Papa beamed with pride over everything he made happen for all of us on Christmas. By the end of the night, Papa would always give a colorful retelling of his famous stories of being a truck driver in the rough-andtumble world of Revere in the 1960s and 1970s; and stories from his cherished vacations and nights out to eat with his wife and kids. Papa was a hardworking man, a strong father, and an amazing grand, greatgrand, and great-great-grandfather – but even more than that, he was our best friend, and the rock of our family. If there is one thing Papa can be most proud of, it’s the amazing family he and his wife Joyce helped create – 4 children, 9 grandchildren, 8 great grandchildren,2 great great grandchildren, and endless love and memories. Papa’s legacy will live forever in all of us and all of you, FUNNY FACE, WE LOVE YOU!

Passionate about the foods he grew up eating, Ronnie loved to cook. Keeping true to tradition, Ronnie and Joe held many Christmas Eve “Feast of the Seven Fishes” for family and friends. Starting a new tradition, he and Joe spent many of their Thanksgivings in Ogunquit, Maine. This annual trip was something that Ronnie looked forward to and thoroughly enjoyed. Ronnie had a great sense of pride about being connected to or being able to reconnect with family and friends. This was especially true of the many nieces and nephews both here at home and in Maine. He enjoyed being a ‘great uncle’ and getting a peek at yet another generation. Ronnie had an uncanny ability to ‘read’ a person after spending just 20 minutes in the same room with them. He also had a great sense of humor, but he was the one you could go to because he would tell you like it was ‘no holds barred’. A man with a keen eye for décor brought many to his door requesting help with projects around their homes. He was never short on advice about the right curtains, tablecloths, or bed spreads. He was an avid news and weather watcher who paid close attention to the world and people around him. He loved conversation but he loved his coff ee more. Undoubtedly, Ronnie is someone we will miss, the void too big to fi ll. But, for many of us, our souls are intertwined and he will be with us forever.

Page 20 THE REVERE ADVOCATE – WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 23, 2022 BEACON | FROM Page 18 223) – Legislation that would allow Lottery winners to request that their name, address and other identifying information not be disclosed by the Lottery Commission has died in a study committee. The measure also requires the Lottery Commission to inform a winning ticket holder of their right not to have their personal information disclosed to the public. Another provision gives winners the right to refuse to perform any public action in connections with the awarding, payment or collection of prize money. “Private citizens should never have to worry about their personal privacy or safety should they choose to play the lottery,” said Sen. Mark Montigny (D-New Bedford). “Right now, the commonwealth eff ectively forces a prize winner to hire private legal counsel in order to remain confi dential. This policy needs to change before someone is harmed by the shameless publicity and marketing sought by the Lottery, which is the only reason this bill has stalled. Personal safety is far more important than the promotion and advertisement of mere games, and I will aggressively push this legislation next session.” Lottery Executive Director Michael Sweeney opposed the bill. “Providing a public record of winners is important to the integrity and public trust in our games, assuring the public that prizes are being awarded in a transparent manner,” said Sweeney. QUOTABLE QUOTES “If you or anyone you know has interest in serving on a committee or working with us in this administration, I encourage you to get involved.

It’s long past time to treat them that way. We truly appreciate the progress we have made over the last year, but it will take at least another decade of similar support to erase what took a decade to break.” --- Massachusetts Conservation Voters executive director Doug Pizzi who along with more than 50 organizations is calling for major improvements at Massachusetts state parks. “The pandemic has exacerbated workforce shortages across the health care and human services sector in both the public and private markets, placing signifi cant stress on our health care providers, their staff and our Massachusetts residents seeking care. Through this program, we are providing tangible support to sustain them in this high demand work.” --- Health and Human Services Secretary Marylou Sudders on the Baker Administration’s plans to implement a $130 million loan repayment program to support and retain the behavioral health and primary care workforce. “Our earlier work found disapCANNABIS | FROM Page 1 revenue that facility was generating. But medical marijuana does not bring any tax revenue to municipalities. Councillor Anthony Zambuto, who opposes recreational marijuana sales, raised several questions with Avery. You kind of glossed over that we’re going to overturn the will of voters or ask voters to vote again. Who’s going to pay for that?” Zambuto asked. Avery felt the question could be included on the next ballot. LEGISLATORS | FROM Page 1 resentative Haddad. “This team refl ects the growing diversity of the Women’s Caucus and will be critical to supporting the work of the Caucus next session.” “I am thrilled to serve again as Senate Chair of the Women’s Caucus next session,” said Senator Lovely. “Under Rep. Haddad and I, the Caucus has grown and focused on the critical issues affecting women and girls in Massachusetts, including COVID’s impact on women, health acpointing compliance with Massachusetts’ 2012 healthcare price transparency law. And now we fi nd that compliance with the federal law isn’t much better. We are not insensitive to the challenges providers are facing, but it is disappointing that compliance with the law has not budged much since 2017, when Pioneer began monitoring hospital price transparency eff orts.” ---Pioneer Institute Executive Director Jim Stergios on the institute’s survey that found spotty compliance with the Federal Price Transparency Law by Massachusetts hospitals. The law requires hospitals to make prices for 300 shoppable services available online in a “consumer-friendly format.” 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 Zambuto also wanted to know what Avery knew about the dramatic uptick in emergency room visits due to marijuana use. Zambuto said marijuana produced today is much stronger than it was during the 60s and while it is benefi cial for some people it is a problem for others. But Avery responded there has never been a death or overdose due to marijuana. Councilor Anthony Cogliandro admitted he was against recreational marijuana sales but has changed his opinion cess and racial disparities, and empowering women in government. I am excited to continue this work and look forward to serving again next session.” “I am honored to have been chosen by my colleagues to serve as House Chair of the Women’s Caucus next session,” said Representative Kane. “This team shows the strong bicameral and bipartisan nature of our Caucus, our diversity, and the power of the women of the State House. The Women’s Caucus is a unique and important entity, and I am excited to 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 November 14-18, the House met for a total of 24 minutes and the Senate met for a total of 40 minutes. Mon.

This for me is about tax revenue,” said Cogliandro adding that $1.5 to $2 million sounded really good. The subcommittee did not vote to make a recommendation to the full council but decided instead to keep the discussion within the committee. continue my work with my colleagues in this space.” The Women’s Caucus was founded in 1975 with a mission to enhance the economic status and equality of women and to encourage and support women in all levels of government. In January, following this recent election, the Caucus will have upwards of 60 members – comprising about 30% of the legislature. When the new session begins, the Caucus will work with all its members to determine strategic and legislative priorities for the 193rd General Court.
