By Brendan Clogston n a showing of solidary with a School Department beleaguered by massive cuts in state aid, the City Council’s budget committee unanimously recommended the Everett Public School’s proposed budget out to the full council after a brief series of questions, a decision which was met with the applause of over a hundred parents, educators and residents in

attendance at Monday’s meeting. Last year, Governor Charlie Baker changed how the state calculates the amount of aid it provides to school districts to provide students with free and reduced lunches. Under the change, Everett lost funding to feed about 2,000 students, blowing a multimillion dollar hole in its budget. If the formu-

THE HOUSE AND SENATE: Beacon Hill Roll Call records local senators’ and representatives’ votes on roll calls from the week of May 22-26. PROHIBIT PRISONERS FROM WORKING OUT-OF-STATE (H 3034) House 120-35, approved and sent to the Senate a bill that would prohibit prisoners in Massachusetts from working out of state. Supporters said these prisoners should remain in Massachusetts and cited the success of inmates’ work in Bay State communities including the one in Bristol County which has saved taxpayers $1.3 million annually. They noted that current law might be designed to ban this practice but it is vague and needs to be clarified by this bill. Opponents said current law already prohibits this practice. They questioned why the House is working on a solution in search of a problem while the state deficit is growing and there are many more important pieces of legislation to consider. This controversy was started back in January by Bristol County Sheriff Thomas Hodgson who has said that he would like to help the construction of the wall by sending inmates from the Bristol County House of Correction to the south and help with the construction President Donald Trump’s U.S. - Mexico border wall. The bill was supported by the 9-member Trump Administration Working Group that was created to provide guidance on

THE EVERETT ADVOCATE - Friday, June 2, 2017

how the Legislature should respond to the actions of the Trump Administration and help find possible legislative responses and solutions. The group, created by House Speaker Bob DeLeo (D-Winthrop), has a mission to determine the local consequences of Trump’s actions with the focus on economic stability, health care, higher education and the state’s most vulnerable residents. All nine members of the group are Democratic legislators. The group is cochaired by Reps. Patricia Haddad (D-Somerset) and Ronald Mariano (D-Quincy). (A “Yes” vote is for the ban. A “No” vote is against the ban.) Rep. Joseph McGonagle

Yes

STUDY THE EFFECTS AND COST OF THE PRISONER BAN (H 3034) House 38-117, rejected a GOP-sponsored alternative bill that would replace the ban with a study of the effect of prisoner work programs, reciprocity agreements between the state and neighboring states and the costs or savings associated with restricting such programs. The 13-member study committee would report its findings and recommendations to the Legislature by October 1. Supporters of the study said the bill is unnecessary because current law already bans this practice. They argued that a study of the effects of this ban and of someday lifting the ban should both be examined

by the study committee. Opponents of the study said this is a move by Republicans to essentially kill the bill. They said current law is a little vague and that the bill would make it clear that there is a ban on this practice. Ironically, Republicans were the ones who made the motion to study the bill, a move that would’ve prohibited a vote on the original bill banning the use of Bay State prisoners in other states. Usually, it is the Democrats who propose to kill a bill and avoid a direct vote on it by proposing a study. The Republicans said they were serious about a study and were not trying to avoid a vote on the ban itself. (A “Yes” vote is for the study. A “No” vote is against it.) Rep. Joseph McGonagle

No

$45.5 MILLION SUPPLEMENTAL BUDGET (H 3718) House 153-1, approved and sent to the Senate a $45.5 million supplemental budget for fiscal year 2017. Provisions include $15 million for the Department of Correction to cover the payroll for the month of June; $14 million for snow and ice removal; and $1.5 million for staffing the state’s summer pools. Supporters said the package is a balanced one that helps close out the books on fiscal 2017 and funds necessary programs while continuing fiscal responsibility. They said this is a lot less money than many supplemental budgets but it is money that must be spent to ensure snow plow contractors are paid in a timely fashion and that prison and pool staff are paid. The lone opponent said that the state currently has a $500 million shortfall and argued that the budget process needs major reforms and more transparency so that taxpayers know how their money is being spent. He noted there is no firm figure on the amount of money being spent on illegal immigrants but estimates run as high as almost $2.5 billion. He argued that spending on MassHealth has increased from $8 billion to $16 billion in eight years and 30 percent of the state’s population is on subsidized health care.

(A “Yes” vote is for the budget. A “No” vote is against it.) Rep. Joseph McGonagle

Yes

$40.4 BILLION FISCAL 2018 BUDGET (S 3) Senate 38-0, approved a $40.4 billion fiscal 2018 budget. Over a 3-day period, the Senate added an estimated $50 million to the budget and considered and voted on more than 1,000 proposed amendments. All but one of the amendments which were voted on by a recorded roll call (in which people can see how their senator voted,) were not controversial and were approved unanimously — garnering the support of all Democratic and Republican senators. Conversely there were many controversial amendments that that were decided by voice votes or standing votes — neither of which allows you to see how an individual senator voted. Some of the amendments approved without a roll call vote were ones to increase the tax on flavored cigars; hike from $20 to $45 the Registry of Deeds fee that funds the Community Preservation Act Trust Fund; and eliminate the $80 per month parole fee charged to prisoners who are on parole. Some of the amendments rejected without a roll call were ones to reduce the sales tax from 6.25 percent to 5 percent; reduce the income tax from 5.1 to 5 percent; and establish a two-day sales tax holiday in August Supporters said the budget is a fiscally responsible and balanced one that makes vital investments in the state while continuing fiscal responsibility. The House has approved a different version of the budget. A House-Senate conference committee will hammer out a compromise version. (A “Yes” vote is for the budget.) Sen. Sal DiDomenico

Yes

REIMBURSE REGIONAL SCHOOL TRANSPORTATION COSTS (S 3) Senate 38-0, approved an amendment increasing funding for the reimbursement of regional school transportation costs by $1,250,000 - from $61,021,000 to $62,271,000. Amendment supporters said years ago regional schools were promised 100 percent reimbursement but that has never happened. They argued this additional $1,250,000 would increase reimbursement to a level of 73 percent. (A “Yes” vote is for the amendment.) Sen. Sal DiDomenico

Yes

$500,000 FOR ADULT BASIC EDUCATION (S 3) Senate 37-0, approved an amendment increasing funding for adult basic education (ABE) by $500,000 - from $3,250,000 to $3,750,000. ABE includes a range of educational services for adults including basic reading and writing (including English for non-native speakers of English) math and high school equivalency programs. Amendment supporters said these programs make a huge difference in the lives of thousands of people including many immigrants. They noted ABE leads to people obtaining jobs and is good for families and the economy. (A “Yes” vote is for the amendment.) Sen. Sal DiDomenico

Yes

CHILD AND YOUTH READINESS CABINET (S 3) Senate 38-0, approved an amendment creating a 12-member Child and Youth Readiness Cabinet to coordinate efforts to increase the level of cooperation and collaboration across the state departments and agencies that serve children, youth and families. The cabinet would include many of Gov. Charlie Baker’s current chief secretaries and commissioners including the secretaries of education, health and human services

and administration and finance. Also included are the commissioners of early education and care, elementary and secondary education and higher education. The cabinet would be required to submit a report of its findings and recommendations by March 1, 2018. Amendment supporters said there are many state agencies that serve children and this new group will help coordinate their efforts to ensure children, youth and families are getting the best services possible. (A “Yes” vote is for the amendment). Sen. Sal DiDomenico

Yes

RETROACTIVE BENEFITS FOR GOLD STAR FAMILIES (S 3) Senate 38-0, approved an amendment allowing Gold Star Families to be eligible for a $2,000 annual benefit retroactive to the date of the soldier’s death. Current law only pays the benefits from the date on which the family applies for them. Amendment supporters said many families take a while after the soldier’s death to apply because they are grieving. They argued that denying these retroactive benefits is cruel and unfair to these families whose child made the ultimate sacrifice for this nation. (A “Yes” vote is for the amendment.) Sen. Sal DiDomenico

Yes

MEDAL OF LIBERTY (S 3) Senate 38-0, approved an amendment allowing the closest surviving relative of a soldier who qualifies for the Massachusetts Medal of Liberty to be eligible for the medal. Current law only allows the medal to go to the spouse, children, siblings or parents. The medal is awarded by the governor to families of Bay State service men and women killed in action or who died in service while in a combat area or who died as a result of wounds received in action. Amendment supporters cited the example of a nephew of a Korean War veteran who was not allowed to receive the medal under current law. They argued the law should be changed to ensure that some family member receives the medal. (A “Yes” vote is for the amendment.) Sen. Sal DiDomenico

Yes

$50,000 FOR ALZHEIMER’S PUBLIC AWARENESS CAMPAIGN (S 3) Senate 37-0, approved an amendment providing $50,000 for a statewide Alzheimer’s disease advocacy and education organization for a public awareness and education campaign. Supporters said that this campaign will teach people many things including early warning signs of the disease and how the family caregiver fits into the picture. They noted more than 125,000 people in the Bay State have Alzheimer’s. (A “Yes” vote is for the amendment.) Sen. Sal DiDomenico

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 filed. 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 May 22-26, the House met for a total of seven hours and 59 minutes and the Senate met for a total of 35 hours and 59 minutes.

Mon. May 22 House 10:08 a.m. to 10:19 a.m. Senate 11:02 a.m. to 11:13 a.m. Tues. May 23 No House session Senate 10:08 a.m. to 10:19 p.m. Wed.

MEMORIAL DAY | FROM PAGE 1 Today’s Memorial Day Service is dedicated to this hero and to all those who have sacrificed so much in order to protect our freedom and democracy.� Prior to gathering at Glenwood Cemetery, attendees assembled at Everett High School. Mayor DeMaria and Superintendent of Schools Frederick Foresteire laid down two wreaths in memory of Brienza and those who served in our armed forces. The wreath ceremony was created to reflect and remember those who have made the ultimate sacrifice. Mayor DeMaria addressed the audience and explained the significance of recognizing the sacrifice made by Brienza, and the heavy weight of the sacrifice that will be borne by his family each and every day. He was pleased to announce that in the coming months he will work with State Senator Sal DiDomenico and State Representative Joe McGonagle to introduce legislation that would make the Brienza family, and other families like theirs, eligible for Gold Star family recognition. Right now Massachusetts is one of only 20 states that don’t recognize with Gold Star status the families of soldiers

BUDGET | FROM PAGE 1 la had not been changed, Everett schools would have seen an additional $6.5 million to $8 million from the state in FY18, according to Assistant Superintendent Charles Obremski. The change has wreaked havoc on the school budgets in many of the Commonwealth’s poorer communities, said Superintendent Fred Foresteire. “It’s worked backwards, where the poorer communities are punished and the wealthier communities have made out,” said Foresteire. “Gateway cities, the cities that are struggling the most, got hurt the most. The wealthy communities got an increase in their Chapter 70 reimbursements.” According to Foresteire, the state has since indicated it intends to rectify the issue in subsequent fiscal years, but the damage is done for FY18. The School Department foundation budget is $92,101,035, though after subtracting chargebacks to the city for shared expenses and adding $4,600,000 for special

education transportation, the true total School Department budget comes to $74,685,290. The School Department is also hoping to see $1 million coming from the state budget and an additional $1.7 million from Medicaid reimbursements to the city, and the department is applying for grants to fund some positions. “With all that, in FY18, if you pass the budget as a whole, we should be able to get by and hire back most of the staff that’s laid off at this time,” said Obremski. Last year, the School Department had to turn to the city for an emergency appropriation in order to prevent significant layoffs. This year, the mayor and auditor have provided an additional $2 million from the city budget to pay some teachers’ salaries. Even so, about 70 people are working in the school district now whose salaries are not funded in the current budget. They include 39 teachers, six special education teachers, 16 paraprofessionals, five custodians and four clerks. The schools are hoping to find funding for most or all of those positions – particularly with a $1 million appropriation the schools are hoping will make it through the state budget process – but according to Obremski, “Until everything gets finalized on the state and federal level, we just can’t make a commitment to these people.” According to Foresteire, the district will feel a hit from the state’s change regardless: “We’re certainly going to lose personnel, and that’s where it really hurts the most, but then you’re going to close down programs. And you chug along and see what we can and can’t afford – things like preschool, which is not mandatory, but if we have to make some moves there we have to look at that. Our activities, we have activities from the time school ends until 7 p.m. at the elementary school, and at the high school,

we’re there until 10 or 11 o’ clock every night of the week with programs and clubs and organizations. All those things are going to have to go if we don’t get the money we need.” When asked by Ward 6 Councillor Michael McLaughlin why the schools aren’t seeking more money from the city, Foresteire answered that while the district would certainly come to the city in the case of an emergency, the larger issue is beyond a few financial plugs in the dam. “$120,000 would be nice, but our problems are much bigger than that. We’re talking 10 times that. We’re talking millions,” said Foresteire. “This is probably one of the best times that I’ve seen this city and the way that it’s operating, and in this case with the $2 million that we had added in the budget from the mayor and the auditor, they knew the problem. This is what they could do at this point. They’re not sure where the city’s finances are. … If we get pushed more against the wall, I am sure that the mayor and the auditor will come before you and let you know what’s going on and to go for an additional appropriation if they have the money.” Councillors were broadly sympathetic to the School Department’s situation, many of them encouraging the schools to approach them for additional funding should any need arise. “Some people look at the budget and they see the salaries and they see the costs, but that money’s investing in the success of our youth,” said Councillor-at-Large Peter Napolitano, who chaired the meeting. “The track history is there and it’s proven. In my own personal opinion, whatever we can do.” The budget committee will hold its next meeting on Saturday, June 3 at 8 a.m. in the council chambers at City Hall, where they will discuss the city budget. The full council will take it up on June 12.

Mayor and EPD release Annual Report Reported crimes: 16% decrease over the past five years ayor Carlo DeMaria and the Everett Police Department recently released the EPD’s Annual Report, an extensive document that covers the previous year in Everett as it relates to policing and crime. The report is available for public viewing on the EPD website – everettpolicema.com. Mayor DeMaria stated, “Each and every day, our men and women in uniform stand ready to protect public safety, our families and our community without regard for themselves. This is the highest form of service to others, and I am enormously grateful for their sustained dedication and hard work. I am pleased that

M

this year the city’s crime rate decreased, mirroring a downward trend that we have seen in Everett over the past several years. Now and in the future, I will continue to dedicate all necessary resources to allow our police department to use the best technology and equipment available to perform their duties on behalf of our residents.” In the Annual Report, overall crime has decreased by 5% from 2015-2016. Personal, property, and crimes against society accounted for a total of 1,714 recorded crimes. When comparing that to 2011, when the city had 2,218 reported crimes, the EPD has made progress in the

Carlo DeMaria Mayor

form of an overall 16% reduction in crimes over the past five years. Through good crime analysis and sound crime reduction strategies, during the past five years the EPD has observed significant decreases in the following: breaking and entering (-49%), theft from a motor vehicle (-44%), theft from a building (-43%), impersonation (-42%), robbery (-35%), motor vehicle theft (-30%), simple assault (-29%), and vandalism (-21%). Police Chief Steven Mazzie stated, “The Police Department continues to work towards making Everett one of the safest and most secure urban communities around. Our strategies and approach to policing continue to pay dividends as we enjoy solid police–community relations, enjoy continued reductions in crime and are on pace to meet the growing needs of the community by recruiting, training and putting more officers on our streets.” In 2016 the department hired four new officers through lateral transfers from surrounding departments. In addition, the city processed and placed six new recruit officers into regional police academies, and they will begin working as officers soon.

New energy efficient parking kiosks went live Tuesday ayor Carlo DeMaria is pleased to announce that the city’s new parking kiosks with smart meter technology went live on Tuesday, May 30. During this initial kick-off, the pay stations will accept payment for parking throughout Everett Square. Mayor DeMaria said, “These new parking kiosks will improve the look of our streets by reduc-

M

ing the amount of meters and replacing them with just a few kiosks. They will also be much more convenient to residents by allowing them to pay with credit card or coins, and allow the city to efficiently manage parking. Everett Chamber of Commerce President Marjorie White stated, “The pay station will be easy to use, fit the cityscape and will enhance the shopping and

dining experience in Everett Square, benefitting our small business community.” The new kiosks will operate in Pay-by-Plate mode, meaning the public enters their license plate number into the kiosk, then pays for the amount of time they want using coins or a credit card, providing drivers with sufficient time to visit shops and restaurants.

then Concannon scored on a wild pitch. With runners on second and third, Powers hit a triple and scored two more to make it 10-1. Marinez got hit by a pitch, then moved to second on another wild throw from the mound. Both of the Crimson Tide’s runners scored on a double by Nearen to make it 12-1. Ariana Garay pitched four innings against the Golden Tornadoes, allowing two runs on only four hits. Freshman Everett pitcher Veronica Bento pitched the last two innings. She had two strikeouts, but conceded five earned runs on four hits. That said, Everett went on to win the game on the mercy rule in the seventh inning. The Crimson Tide ended the season 8-12. “Not what we had hoped for,” said Everett coach Stacy Schiavo. “We had to adjust a few positions, moving the freshman pitcher into position. Ariana Garay did a great job for the team coming in after the third game. She got stronger as the season went on. “Unfortunately, in the new league we only get to play each team once, and I know there are a few teams we could beat if played later in the season. Many of the girls will be playing in summer and fall teams to prepare for a more successful season next year.” Everett will wave goodbye to four seniors, all key players. Arrington and Concannon will attend Regis College; Powers will attend Curry College and Uga will attend Salem State.

New energy efficient parking kiosks went live Tuesday ayor Carlo DeMaria is pleased to announce that the city’s new parking kiosks with smart meter technology went live on Tuesday, May 30. During this initial kick-off, the pay stations will accept payment for parking throughout Everett Square. Mayor DeMaria said, “These new parking kiosks will improve the look of our streets by reducing the amount of meters and replacing them with just a few kiosks. They will also be much more convenient to residents by allowing them to pay with credit card or coins, and allow the city to efficiently manage parking. Everett Chamber of Commerce President Marjorie White stated, “The pay station will be easy to use, fit the cityscape and will enhance the shopping and dining experience in Everett Square, benefitting our small business community.” The new kiosks will operate in Pay-by-Plate mode, meaning the public enters their license plate number into the kiosk, then pays for the amount of time they want using coins or a credit card, providing drivers with sufficient time to visit shops and restaurants.

Powers and Nesta bring experience, respect to martial arts instruction ongtime friends Sensei Bill Powers (shown in photo left) and Shihan Joe Nesta (right) have brought their nearly 90 years of combined martial arts experience to each of the thousands of students that they’ve instructed, and the results show. More than fighting, Powers and Nesta believe that the martial arts are meant to teach “discipline, the art, a positive attitude, confidence, and self-esteem.” “Our teaching method focuses on defeating your opponent with your mind,” said Nesta. “You have to learn how to defeat someone without throwing a single punch, but if a person attacks you, then you have to do what you have to do. But you have to have the skills to do it.” “I believe everybody should

not consume an optimal nutritious diet may be susceptible to poor brain health including mood and behavior. Luckily with a little effort, people generally can improve their eating habits.

Anna Tourkakis Food and Mood As we know all too well, healthy eating is key to a healthy body, and it appears now that the food we eat can also improve our mood and brain health. According to Tufts Health & Nutrition Letter (June 2017), “… scientists have been studying the link between food and mood more closely. They’ve found that there may be a relationship between the risk of common mental health issues – including depression and anxiety- and our diet quality”. Those individuals that do

Foods that matter When healthy eating is the goal, one needs to consider not just the foods to eat but which ones to eat more of and those to eat less. As you may guess a healthy eating pattern includes lots of nutrient-rich plant foods. Vitamins and minerals and phytochemical rich foods such as fruits, vegetables and healthy fats (the omega-3 types) from salmon and flaxseeds and walnuts are associated with a decreased risk of depression and anxiety and should be consumed liberally.

DiDomenico Serves as a Member of NCSL Student-Centered Learning Commission enator Sal DiDomenico recently traveled back to Washington D.C. to serve as a member of the National Conference of State Legislatures’ (NCSL) Student Centered Learning Commission. The Senator was appointed to the Commission by Senate President Stan Rosenberg for his leadership on education policy and the Senate Kids First initiative, a multiyear initiative led by DiDomenico to identify and support innovative strategies for investing in Massachusetts’ children. Senator DiDomenico was joined by a bipartisan group of state legislators from across the country to identify legislative policy options, obstacles, and recommendations to help commission members and other legislators move forward with systems that support student-centered learning opportunities. “It was a pleasure to travel back to our nation’s capital and participate in the NCSL’s Student Centered Learning Com-

S

mission,” said Senator Sal DiDomenico. “This forum provided an excellent opportunity to exchange ideas for developing schools systems with innovative and holistic approaches to educating our children, and I was proud to share the important recommendations in our Kids First blueprint with legislators from across the country. I look forward to working with my fellow commission members in the future and sharing our findings with my colleagues in the Massachusetts Legislature.” The National Conference of State Legislatures has been the voice of state legislatures in Washington, D.C. and has provided support to state legislatures since 1975. The StudentCentered Learning Commission is a new working group created by the NCSL to help states integrate student-centered learning techniques into their current school systems. “Student-centered learning” refers to a variety of educational programs, learning experienc-

es, approaches, and academicsupport strategies that are intended to address the unique learning needs, interests, and/ or cultural backgrounds of individual students. This forum in Washington D.C. was the first meeting for the commission members. DiDomenico will also participate in two upcoming webinars to discuss legislative activity in the states and address key concepts in student-centered learning. He will also participate in a Legislative Summit in Boston where commission members will reflect on their work and make recommendations for next steps. This was the second time this year that Senator DiDomenico traveled to Washington D.C. to represent Massachusetts. In April, DiDomenico led a group of his Senate colleagues to D.C. to gather information on the future of the federal budget and to advocate against potential spending cuts that will have a negative impact on the Commonwealth.

Social Security Advice for Soon-To-Be Retirees Dear Savvy Senior, Can you recommend any services that help pre-retirees decide when to start drawing their Social Security benefits? My wife and I are approaching retirement age and want to carefully weigh our options to make sure we’re maximizing our benefits. Approaching Retirement Dear Approaching, Deciding when to begin collecting your Social Security benefits could be one of the most important retirement-income decisions you’ll make. The difference between a good decision and a poor one could cost you tens of thousands of dollars over your retirement, so doing your homework and weighing your options now is a wise move. What to Consider As you may already know, you can claim Social Security any time between the ages of 62 and 70, but each year you wait increases your benefit by 5 to 8 percent. But there are other factors you need to take into account to help you make a good decision, like your health and family longevity, whether you plan to work in retirement, along with spousal and survivor benefits. To help you weigh your claiming strategies, you need to know that Social Security Administration claims specialists are not trained or authorized to give you personal advice on when you should start drawing your benefits. They can only provide you information on how the system works under different circumstances. To get advice you’ll need to turn to other sources. Web-Based Help Your first step in getting Social Security claiming strategy advice is to go to SSA.gov/myaccount to get your personalized statement that estimates what your retirement benefits will be at age 62, full retirement age or when you turn 70. These estimates are based on your yearly earnings that are also listed on your report. Once you get your estimates for both you and your wife, there are many online tools you can turn to that can compare your options so you can make an informed decision. Some free sites that offer basic calculations include AARP’s Social Security Benefits Calculator (AARP.org/socialsecuritybenefits), the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s Planning for Retire-

ment tool (ConsumerFinance. gov/retirement) and SSAnalyze that’s offered by United Capital (BedrockCapital.com/ ssanalyze). But if you want a more thorough analysis check out Maximize My Social Security (MaximizeMySocialSecurity.com) or Social Security Choices (SocialSecurityChoices.com), which both charge $40. These services, which are particularly helpful to married couples as well as divorced or widowed persons, will run scenarios based on your circumstances and show how different filing strategies affect the total payout over the same time frame. Personal Advice If you want human help, there are specialized firms and financial advisors that can advise you too. One such firm is Social Security Solutions (SocialSecuritySolutions.com, 866-7627526). They offer several levels of web-based and personalized service (ranging from $20 to $500) including their $125 “Advised” plan that runs multiple calculations and comparisons, recommends a best course of action in a detailed report, and gives you a one-on-one session with a Social Security specialist over the phone to discuss the report and ask questions. Or, you can get help through a financial planner. Look for someone who is a fee-only certified financial planner (CFP) that charges on an hourly basis and has experience in Social Security analysis. To find someone, use the National Association of Personal Financial Advisors online directory at NAPFA.org, or try the Garrett Planning Network (GarrettPlanningNetwork.com), which is a network of fee-only advisers that charge between $150 and $300 per hour. Send your senior questions to: Savvy Senior, P.O. Box 5443, Norman, OK 73070, or visit SavvySenior. org. Jim Miller is a contributor to the NBC Today show and author of “The Savvy Senior” book.

“YOUR FINANCIAL FOCUS�

DALEY AND NADEAU SUPREME COURT CASES his past Tuesday, May 30, 2017, the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court (SJC) handed down a pretty big blow to MassHealth by ruling in favor of the appellants. The SJC decided to hear the Daley case and the Nadeau case at the same time as the issues in both cases were so intricately related. This favorable decision was due to the endless work by members of the Massachusetts Chapter of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys as well as assistance from the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys and the Massachusetts Real Estate Bar Association. The Daley case involved the transfer of a remainder interest in real estate into an irrevocable trust with a retained life estate in the deed itself on the part of the applicant. The Nadeau case involved simply a transfer of the entire fee simple interest in real estate into an irrevocable trust without a retention of a life estate in the deed itself on the part of the applicant. The court held in both cases that the real estate housed in each of the irrevocable trusts was not a countable asset and reversed the prior judgments that were in favor of MassHealth. As a result, the applicants should now become eligible for MassHealth benefits. In other words, these trusts have passed muster insofar as the highest court in the land is concerned. MassHealth had presented what I believe to have been an outrageous argument by claiming that the Health Care Financing Agency (HCFA) Transmittal 64 in effect contained language that should lead to the conclusion that a right to use, occupy and possess real estate held in an irrevocable trust was a “payment� to a MassHealth applicant/nursing home resident. The SJC rebuked MassHealth’s argument unequivocally. In a nutshell. The SJC stated a use and occupancy right does not rise to the level of a Trustee being able to sell the underlying real estate and use the net sales proceeds therefrom to pay for nursing home care. The SJC also indicated that a reserved life estate in and of itself does not render the underlying real estate a “countable� asset for MassHealth eligibility purposes. It went on to say, regarding the Daley Trust, that the remainder interest that was transferred into the irrevocable trust itself was not a“countable�asset as well. It is great news for elderly applicants who have placed their home in an irrevocable trust that included a provision for use and occupancy. The SJC could have gone a lot further in setting MassHealth straight on many other issues pertaining to irrevocable trusts. My guess is MassHealth will continue to try to attack irrevocable trusts by pivoting to the next absurd argument. Therefore, the fight is not over and will most likely continue. However, this was a big step in the right direction. The decision was just released as this column was written so members of the elder bar (including me) will spend many months digesting it and of course revising trust provisions accordingly. Hopefully, these two decisions along with the previously-decided Heyn appellate court case will at least make MassHealth think twice before making an unreasonable and legally-flawed argument in an attempt to attack an otherwise properly drafted irrevocable trust. The Massachusetts elder bar should be commended for such voracious advocacy on behalf of the elderly community.

Busy holiday weekend for Everett Police verett Chief of Police Steven A. Mazzie announced that the Everett Police Department responded to over 300 calls for service – producing 13 arrests – over the 2017 Memorial Day Holiday Weekend. On Friday, May 26 as Patrol Officer Kristopher Gaff was working a paid police detail at the Stop & Shop on Revere Beach Parkway, his attention was drawn to the service desk where an individual was attempting to purchase gift cards with several declined credit cards. As Officer Gaff investigated, he was allegedly assaulted by the individual, who fled the store and ran across six lanes of rush hour traffic on Route 16, causing traffic to come to an immediate stop. Reportedly, the suspect led the officers on a lengthy foot pursuit but was finally taken into custody. He allegedly had in his possession

E

19 fraudulent credit cards and false identification. The suspect was identified as Arnese Tyrell Baron, 23, of Jamaica, N.Y. He was charged with the following: assault and battery on a police officer, resisting arrest, possessing false credit cards, three counts of using forged credit cards and multiple warrants in Massachusetts, Florida and New York. He was scheduled for arraignment on Tuesday, May 30, 2017. Chief Mazzie said, “During holiday weekends like Memorial Day that kick off the start of summer, we normally see a spike in calls for service and public order offenses as more people are spending time outside. Fortunately, it was a relatively safe weekend.” Other arrests by the Everett Police Department included a variety of public order offenses, domestic violence offenses and motor vehicle offenses.
