Itwill be taken up in mid-Juneand will require a $3 million appropriationto be matched by$2 million in aid.“Investing in the infrastructurewill improve the Square,but there is concern we’re relyingon older informationwithout any recent input,” CityCouncil President Robert VanCampen said after ceding thegavel to Ward 3 Councillor AnthonyDiPierro for the discussionin reference to a plan fornew park space and road reconfigurations being approvedby the City Council in 2017 anddesigns formulated in 2019 aspart of a larger urban renewalplan the pandemic put onhold. “I’d like the administrationto hear from the business communityin real time. If it’s postponed,we should use the timeto hear from stakeholders.”“We have [met with membersof the business community]and are making adjustments,but can do more,” Directorof Transportation and MobilityJay Monty responded. “Ifeel like we’re on solid groundon the fundamental concept,but adjustments can be madearound the edges.”He also pointed out that if asmaller scale project is undertakenaid sources will only fundone-third of a project, not provide$2 million.Earlier in the meeting Montywas reappointed to his positionthrough January 5, 2026.City Solicitor Colleen Mejia wasalso reappointed through January5, 2026. During the process,Councillor-at-Large GuerlineAlcy Jabouin asked Mejia whylawyers other than herself andthe two assistant city solicitorsare sometimes used. “We useoutside counsel for expertiseNeed a hall for your special event?The Schiavo Club, located at71 Tileston Street, Everett isavailable for your Birthdays,Anniversaries, Sweet 16 partiesand more?For more info,call (857) 249-7882in certain areas of law that arecomplicated,” Mejia answered.In other items, the Councilalso approved a proposal toamend the parking requirements,use regulations anddimensional standards in theZoning Ordinance related tothe Lower Broadway EconomicDevelopment District. Directorof Planning and DevelopmentMatt Lattanzi explainedthat a typographical error requiredone parking space forevery foot of space in industrialbuildings and the changewould require one space per1,000 feet of building space. “Itwill still provide enough parking,”he said.The Council also approvedan expenditure of a $176,000grant from the Metro NorthWorkforce Board for the expansionof ongoing digital equityinitiatives through the YouthDevelopment and Enrichmentoffice; a $30,000 grant fromthe state Local Cultural CouncilProgram to the Everett CulturalCouncil and a $20,150 federalDept. of Homeland SecurityEmergency ManagementPerformance grant to maintainand/or enhance the EmergencyPreparedness System.The Council also acceptedtwo communiques fromthe School Committee introducedby their Vice Chairpersonand Member At-Large SamanthaLambert at their Monday,May 6 meeting “requestingthe School Committeeand administration be includedin open discussions aboutschool space, including developmentof a comprehensivestudy of all city-owned buildings[through] a working commission”and “a School BuildingCommittee be formed forthe current proposal for a newHigh School to include designatedmembers of the CityCouncil, School Committeeand School Department andCity Administrations.”The Council tabled a proposalby Alcy Jabouin and Councillor-at-LargeKaty Rogers forthe School Superintendentand any relevant representativesof the school administrationto appear before the CityCouncil to present and discussexisting and foreseeable spaceneeds throughout the entiredistrict at all grade levels, includingpotential use of PopeJohn and the former EverettHigh School. “We want to beon board with what the plansare,” Alcy Jabouin feels.Everett is one of the very fewschool systems with kindergartenthrough 8thgrade neighborhoodschools, although atone time the Parlin School wasa Junior High. The 2019 closureof Pope John XXIII High School,now owned by the City andslated for housing, and the ageof the old public High School,now being used for preschooland other programs, promptedthe building of the currentHigh School in 2007 andeventually led to K-8 neighborhoodschools, but the currentHigh School is reportedlyovercrowded.Mayor Carlo DeMaria’s longtermplan is to build a newHigh School at RivergreenPark, complete with a vocationalprogram, and presumablyconvert the current HighSchool into a Middle School.That could cost hundreds ofmillions of dollars and thefunding, approval and buildingprocess could take years,if it happens at all. There aremany who feel the old HighSchool or Pope John could beused to relieve overcrowdingin the meantime.Council on Aging announces publicevents and programs for JuneMayor Carlo DeMaria ispleased to announce thatthe City of Everett’s Council onAging (COA) will host the followingevents and programs atthe Connolly Center (90 ChelseaSt.) in June:● Thursday, June 6 at 12:30p.m.: A special movie event featuringthe classic film “AuntyMame” starring Rosalind Russell.All are welcome to attend.

Senator DiDomenicowill fi le amendments to includefunding for more prioritiesand local initiatives, andthe Senate will then debatethe FY25 budget proposalin formal session beginningTuesday, May 21, 2024.“Budgets reflect our government’spriorities, and I amproud to support this proposalwhich demonstrates ourcommitment to uplifting ourchildren and families, workers,and people most in needthroughout the Commonwealth,”said Senator DiDomenico,who is Assistant MajorityLeader of the MassachusettsSenate. “I am thrilledthat so many of my prioritieshave been included in theSenate budget and throughthese investments, we willexpand access to nutritiousfoods, quality education frompre-K through community college,resources for our mostvulnerable residents, as wellas, healthcare and housing. Iwant to thank Senate PresidentSpilka and Senate Waysand Means Chair Michael Rodrigues,for pulling togethera budget that will make ourstate more equitable and affordablefor people from everycorner of the state.”The Committee’s budgetrecommends a total of $57.9billion in spending, a $1.8 billionincrease over the FY24General Appropriations Act(GAA). This sensible spendingrecommendation is basedon a tax revenue estimate of$41.5 billion for FY25, whichis $208 million less than revenuesassumed in the FY24GAA. This represents nearlyfl at growth, as agreed uponduring the Consensus Revenueprocess in January, plus$1.3 billion in revenue generatedfrom the Fair Share surtax.Asthe Commonwealth adjuststo a changing economiclandscape and ongoing taxrevenue volatility, the Committee’sFY25 budget adheresto disciplined and responsiblefi scal stewardship. It does notraise taxes, nor does it drawdown available reserves fromthe Stabilization Fund or theTransitional Escrow Fund; atthe same time it judicially utilizesone-time resources tomaintain balance. The Senate’sbudget continues responsibleand sustainable planning forthe future by continuing togrow the Rainy-Day Fund, alreadyat a historic high of over$8 billion. The Senate’s proposalwould build the Commonwealth’sreserves to ahealthy balance in excess of$9 billion at the close of FY25.Fair Share Investments:Consistent with the consensusrevenue agreement reachedwith the Administration andHouse of Representatives inJanuary, the Senate’s FY25budget includes $1.3 billion inrevenues generated from theFair Share surtax of 4% on annualincome above $1 million.As FY25 represents the secondyear where this source of revenueis available, the Committee’sbudget invests these FairShare revenues into an array ofimportant initiatives to furtherstrengthen our state’s economyby expanding access toquality public education andimproving the state’s transportationinfrastructure.Education: The Senate Waysand Means FY25 budget proposalimplements the Senate’sStudent Opportunity Planby shaping polices to makehigh-quality education moreaccessible and by making significantinvestments in theeducation system, from ouryoungest learners to adultsreentering the higher educationsystem. Recognizing thatinvesting in our EEC system directlysupports the underlyingeconomic competitiveness ofthe Commonwealth, the Senate’sbudget makes a $1.58billion investment in EEC. TheFY25 budget will maintainoperational support for providers,support the EEC workforceand prioritize accessibilityand aff ordability throughoutour EEC system.Building off the Senate’sunanimous passage of thecomprehensive EARLY ED Actin March, the Committee’s FY25budget codifi es several provisionsof the Act, transformingthe state’s relationship withthe early education sector byimproving affordability andaccess for families, increasingpay for educators and ensuringthe sustainability and qualityof EEC programs.

I believe theyare asking one of them to goand speak on behalf of thestudents. More than enoughtime. These folks need to listenup and stop protectingthis man.”Puopolo replied, “Paula &Corey decided the childrenshould go fi rst.”McCarthy is referring to DiPierro,who had publicly resignedhis seat on the councilthe week before the plannedcircus.Sterite emailed Puopolo,stating, “John can you let Joshknow that Cory is asking ifstudent can go fi rst.“ Followingup on the same emailthread to Resnek, “You canadd a point about the black &brown youth are in fear fromhearing & seeing these racistcomments in the city they aregrowing up in in 2022.”Resnek, again, in his attemptto direct the circusfor the Monday night CityCouncil meeting the next day,emailed, “The council can’thurt us without paying for itin the Wednesday paper.”Little did Resnek’s puppetsknow how much the Wednesdaypaper and its disgraced reportercould hurt them.

Nuzzowas one year behind the biggerthan life defensive specialist,who was all over the fieldmaking plays. Anzalone, whogrew up in the Woodlawn sectionof the city, was capableof playing all seven positionsup front.“I got to play with Steveduring my sophom*ore andjunior seasons,” Nuzzo said. “Iwas a halfback and defensiveback, and Steve was a defensivelineman and linebacker.He was also a tight endon offense. My first impressionsof him were that of aman amongst boys. He was astough as they come, and wasdominant on every play.”There were no Super Bowlsuntil the 1972 season, butduring Steve’s sophom*oreand junior seasons (1970 and1971) the Tide won the GreaterBoston League (GBL) title.Besides Anzalone, JohnRomboli, Frank Nazzaro, JimmyDiNuccio and Joe DeGeorge,who was Steve’s cousin,were some of the standoutson those powerful Everettteams, according to Nuzzo.“There were a lot of toughplayers on both sides of theball, and I was lucky enoughto play with them,” said Nuzzo.“The GBL was a tough leagueback then, and we also playedsome tough non-league opponentslike Newton, Quincy,North Quincy and Beverly.”The annual regular seasonschedule made the Tide’s accomplishments,led by playerslike Anzalone, even more impressive.But football was notthe only sport that Anzaloneimpacted, he also played significantroles on the basketballand baseball teams.Away from the gridiron,Steve hung out with his friendsat Glendale Park.

His teammate Frank Nuzzo (24), front row, third, right, said his first impressions of Stevewere that he was a “man amongst boys.”(Courtesy photo)known as the ‘Glendale ParkAssociation’ to all who knewthem, according to Nuzzo.Nuzzo recalled that the playerswere only a byproductof some great coaching atthe high school in that era. “Iplayed football and baseball,and it was a great experienceplaying for Moody Sarno, whohad his players in leather helmetsuntil 1973, and RalphCecere. They were also greatcoaches and athletes at Fordhamand Villanova Universities,”he said.The Everett native and fatherof three sons – Frank, Mattand Brian – credits his coaches’expertise for him beingdrafted by the St. Louis Cardinalsin 1973. Just prior to theMLB (Major League Baseball)Draft, he had already signed aletter of intent to play footballat UMass-Amherst on a fullscholarship. He ended up signingwith the Cardinals, wherehe played two years in theirminor league system beforean arm injury ended his baseballcareer.“l attributed both these opportunitiesto playing withgreat teammates like Steveand coaches like Moody andRalph at EHS,” Nuzzo added.Nuzzo attended BostonState College during the offseason, before transferring toNortheastern University afterretiring from baseball, majoringin Criminal Justice. Heleft Northeastern in his senioryear to go to work for Air Canadaas an aircraft service coordinator.“Jobs were hard tocome by back then, and whena position opened up, I tookit, because I just got marriedand wanted to start a family,”he said.Frank grew up on ChelseaEverett High School footballgreat Steve Anzalone isshown having a good timealong the sidelines during agame in the early 1970s.(Courtesy photo/Charles Giacobbe)Street with his parents Frankand Mary, also lifelong Everettresidents.

He was blessed with agreat sense of humor to goalong with an infectious laugh.He seemed to care about people,and was the antithesis ofa bully.”Anzalone started out as aEverett High School football great Steve Anzalone isshown on the basketball court.

His favorite bandat the time was “The Spinners,”according to Cronan. “(Steve)would routinely sing theirsongs, and he had a prettygood voice to boot,” said TheVoice of the Football Eagles.“On occasion, he would besinging a song, more to himselfand then he would randomlyspin on one foot mimickingthe band members. Itwas very funny stuff.”There was another randomAnzalone story that has sincebecome BC folklore. “It wascalled the great MBTA traincaper,” said Cronan. “Trainswould routinely idle outsideMaryAnn’s, our local haunt, inCleveland Circle, and, as thestory goes, Steve felt compelledto commandeer anidling train and take it downthe line, all the while stoppingand picking up waitingpassengers. He made it asfar as Brookline before exitingahead of the authorities.When he returned to Molly’s,his teammates and patronscheered him on. File this oneunder: no harm, no foul.”Steve’s Eagles teams alwayshad winning records, andby today’s standards wouldhave been bowl eligible allfour years. They were 7-4 in1973; 8-3 in 1974; 7-4 in 1975;and 8-3 in 1976. “For a small,non-conference regionalprogram, we did pretty wellagainst national-ranked caliberopponents,” said Cronan.“Our opponents included Pitt,Syracuse, West Virginia, Miami,Army and Navy with a sprinklingof non-regional opponentslike Texas, Texas A&M,Tulane and Notre Dame mixedinto the schedule.“It’s important to note thatthose BC teams were chockfull of oversized personalities,”added Cronan. “They wereunique and colorful people.ANZALONE | SEE PAGE 15

BeaconHill Roll Call tabulates the numberof roll calls on which eachsenator voted and then calculatesthat number as a percentageof the total roll call votes held.That percentage is the numberreferred to as the roll call attendancerecord.Thirty-seven (92.5 percent) ofthe current 40 senators did notmiss any roll calls and have 100percent roll call attendance records.Thesenator who missed themost roll calls is Sen. Mike Rush(D-West Roxbury) who missednine roll calls resulting in a 74.2percent roll call attendance record.All nine missed roll callswere held on April 25th.“On April 25th, I was on orderswith the United States Navy andas a result was unable to participatein roll call votes during thatsession,” Rush told Beacon HillRoll Call.“On April 29th, I submitteda letter to the Clerk of the Senateto be included in the SenateJournal stating this fact and recordinghow I would have votedhad I been present.”The only other senator whomissed any roll calls is Sen.Mike Barrett (D-Lexington) whomissed two roll calls on January11, resulting in a 94.2 percentroll call attendance record.

Sal DiDomenico100 percent (0)ALSO UP ON BEACONHILLSENATE WAYS AND MEANSCOMMITTEE PROPOSES $57.9BILLION FISCAL 2025 STATEBUDGET (S 4) – The Senate firedthe next shot in the long battleover the state budget for fiscalyear 2025 that begins on July1. The Senate Ways and MeansCommittee proposed its ownversion of the spending package.Gov. Maura Healey fired theopening volley in January whenshe filed her version of the spendingpackage. The House recentlyapproved its own $57.9 billionversion. It increases spendingby $1.9 billion, or 3.3 percent,over the current fiscal year 2024budget. The Senate will debatethe budget the week of May 20and a House-Senate conferencecommittee will eventually craft aplan that will be presented to theHouse and Senate for considerationand sent to the governor.BAN HOME EQUITY THEFT (H4624) – The Revenue Committeehas advanced a new version of abill that would prohibit cities andtowns that foreclose on propertieson which the owner owesback property taxes, from keepingall of the profits when the cityor town sells the property at auction.Current Massachusetts lawallows this practice.Last year, the United StatesSupreme Court ruled that citiesand towns that foreclose onproperties on which the ownerowes back property taxes, cannotkeep all of the profits whenthe city or town sells the propertyat auction. Supreme CourtChief Justice John Roberts, writinga unanimous decision abouta similar Minnesota law, saidthat “a taxpayer who loses her$40,000 house to the state to fulfilla $15,000 tax debt has madea far greater contribution to thepublic fisc than she owed.”Senate co-chair of the RevenueCommittee Sen. Susan Moran(D-Falmouth) said she neverimagined that cities and townscould keep the equity after ahome was seized and a debt paid.“Because in all the consumerwork that I did, or with respect tomortgages ... the individuals whoowed the debt were able to retaintheir equity,” said Moran. “SoI was not familiar that with municipalforeclosures, the municipalityactually kept all of that equity.And I felt that it was incrediblyunfair.”BAN SENDING DEEPFAKEIMAGES 90 DAYS OR LESS PRIORTO ELECTION DAY (S 2730)– The Election Laws Committeeheld a hearing on legislation thatwould prohibit a person fromknowingly sending out deepfakesof a candidate or politicalparty 90 days or less prior to anelection without providing a disclaimeras follows: “This (image,video or audio) has been manipulatedor generated by artificialintelligence.”A deepfake is defined as an image,audio recording or video recordingof a candidate’s appearance,speech or conduct thathas been intentionally manipulatedthrough digital and othermeans to injure the reputationof the candidate. It is designedto deceive a voter and appear toa reasonable person to depict areal individual saying or doingsomething that that individualdid not say or do.Supporters note that the 90dayperiod is used because 90days or less before Election Day iscrunch time, and at that late date,campaigns may not have time orresources to adequately respondto deepfakes and ensure votersknow the material is non-authenticduring this time fame.The measure empowers agBHRC| SEE PAGE 20Collecting SocialSecurity BenefitsYou can claim your socialsecurity benefitsonce you reach age 62.However, if you begin collectingat age 62, your benefitswill be permanentlyreduced by 25% to 30%,depending on your birthyear. Furthermore, if youbegin collecting at age 62and you are still working,you will have your benefitsfurther reduced once yourincome exceeds a certainlevel. Once you reach yourfull retirement age, you canearn as much as you wantwithout suffering a reductionof benefits. For thoseborn in 1960 or later, thefull retirement age is 67. If,for example, you were bornin 1958, your full retirementage would be 66 and 8months. The Social SecurityAdministration (SSA) hasa table that you can go byto determine what your fullretirement age is and howmuch your benefits will bereduced by claiming earlyand how much they will beincreased by waiting to age70 to collect. If you wait beyondage 70 to collect, youwill not receive any higherbenefit.If you delay collectingyour social security benefitsuntil after your full retirementage, your benefits willincrease 8% each year untilage 70. One benefit of thisstrategy is if you were todie at age 71, your survivingspouse who was marriedto you for at least 10years would receive 100%of your monthly benefit. Ifthat surviving spouse didnot have a higher monthlybenefit under his or herown work history and didnot have a sufficient statepension to live on, as wellas significant liquid assets,that could be very importantfor the surviving spousein order to continue withhis or her standard of living.If a spouse collects benefitsunder his or her spouse’swork history, those benefitswill be permanently reducedif that spouse beginscollecting prior to hisor her full retirement age. Ifyou were to die after reachingyour full retirementage, your surviving spousewould then be able to collect100% of your monthlybenefit, including the increasedbenefit you mightbe receiving as a result ofwaiting until age 70 to collectbenefits.You can claim a survivingspouse social security benefitunder your deceasedspouse’s work history atage 60 and then transitionto your own work historyat your full retirement ageassuming this would resultin a higher monthly benefit.Furthermore, you couldeven wait until age 70 tocollect under your workhistory resulting in even ahigher monthly benefit.I would suggest establishingan account on thewww.ssa.gov website toreview your work historyand to make sure all of yourearnings have been postedproperly. Go onto theretirement calculator tabto project your estimatedbenefits based upon retiringat full retirement ageor at age 70. You would inputyour expecting earningsas well.If a divorced spouse remarries,he or she wouldlose the opportunity to collectbenefits based uponthe previous spouse’s workhistory.

Say nirSaay SeniorSeniby Jim MillerWays to Make GardeningEasier as You AgeDear Savvy Senior,What gardening tips can youoffer to older seniors? I loveto putter around and work inthe garden, but my back andknees have caused me to curtailmy gardening activities,which I miss greatly.Older GardnerDear Older,There’s no doubt that gardeningcan be hard on anaging body. Joints stiff en up,kneeling for prolonged periodshurts, and bending andreaching can strain muscles.But that doesn’t mean youhave to give up your hobby.You just need to garden differently,add some specialtools and know your limits.Here are some tips that mayhelp you.Limber UpWith gardening, good formis very important as well asnot overdoing any one activity.A common problem isthat gardeners often kneelor squat, putting extra pressureon their knees. Then, tospare their knees, they mightstand and bend over for longstretches to weed, dig andplant, straining their backand spine.To help protect your body,you need to warm up beforebeginning. Start by stretching,focusing on the legs andlower back. And keep changingpositions and activities.Don’t spend hours weedinga fl owerbed. After 15 minutesof weeding, you should standup, stretch, and switch to anotheractivity like pruning thebushes or just take a break.It’s also important that yourecognize your physical limitationsand don’t try to dotoo much all at once. And,when lifting heavier objects,remember to use your legs topreserve your back. You cando this by keeping the itemclose to your body and squattingto keep your back as verticalas possible.Get Better ToolsThe right gardening equipmentcan help too. Kneelingpads can protect knees,and garden seats or stoolsare both back and knee savers.Lightweight garden cartscan make hauling bags ofmulch, dirt, plants or otherheavy objects much easier.And long-handled gardeningand weeding tools can helpease the strain on the backby keeping you in a standingupright position versusbent over.There are also ergonomicgardening and pruning toolswith fatter handles and otherdesign features that canmake lawn and garden activitiesa little easier. Fiskarsand Felco make a numberof specialty tools that youcan buy online or at local retailstores that sell lawn andgarden supplies. Also checkout Gardeners.com and RadiusGarden.com,two onlinestores that sell specializedgardening tools and equipmentthat are very helpful toolder gardeners.Make Watering EasierThe chore of carrying wateror handling a heavy, awkwardhose can also be difficultfor older gardeners.Some helpful options includelightweight fabric or expandablehoses instead of heavyrubber hoses; soaker or driphoses that can be snakedthroughout the garden; thincoil hoses that can be usedon the patio or small areas; ahose caddy and reel for easierhose transport around theyard; and a self-winding hosechest that puts the hose upautomatically. There are alsoa variety of ergonomic wateringwands that are lightweight,easy to grip, andreach those hard to-get-toplants.To fi nd these types of wateringaids check with yourlocal lawn and garden suppliesstores or visit Gardeners.com.Bringthe Garden to YouIf your backyard garden hasbecome too much to handle,you should consider elevatedgarden beds or containergardening – using bigpots, window boxes, hangingbaskets, barrels or tub planters.This is a much easier wayto garden because it eliminatesmuch of the bend andstrain of gardening but stillprovides the pleasure of makingthings grow.Send your senior questions to: SavvySenior, P.O.

Many legislators say thatlegislative sessions are only oneaspect of the Legislature’s joband that a lot of important workis done outside of the House andSenate chambers. They note thattheir jobs also involve committeework, research, constituent workand other matters that are importantto their districts. Criticssay that the Legislature does notmeet regularly or long enough todebate and vote in public viewon the thousands of pieces oflegislation that have been filed.They note that the infrequencyand brief length of sessions aremisguided and lead to irresponsiblelate-night sessions and amad rush to act on dozens of billsin the days immediately precedingthe end of an annual session.During the week May 6-10, theHouse met for a total of 28 minutesand the Senate met for a totalof 36 minutes.Mon.
