he state may have legalized the sale of recreational marijuana by ballot initiative last year, but you won’t be buying it in Everett anytime soon. The city council unanimously passed an ordinance Monday night banning the establishment of marijuana shops within its borders. Such a move was possible because of a provision in the state law created in the wake of the ballot initiative, allowing communities which voted against the ballot item, Question 4, last

November to create such bans. Everett voters narrowly rejected Question 4 by a little over 300 votes las year, 6,853 to 6,539. The ordinance will not apply

City Council backs DACA & TPS protection resolution By Brendan Clogston

A

fter a two-week procedural delay and months of public pressure, the City Council overwhelmingly passed a resolution in support of the city’s immigrant community on Monday night, calling on Congress to restore legal status to those formerly covered by the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and Temporary Protected Status (TPS) programs in an 8-1 vote. For months, members of the city’s immigrant communities and their supporters have spoken during the public participation portion of the council’s meetings, urging the city’s leaders to take a stand as the

immigration programs relied on by their parents, their friends or they themselves have been rolled back or revoked by the Trump administration. Chief among those programs are TPS and DACA. Immigrants under TPS from several countries, namely Nicaragua and Honduras, have had their status stripped under the Trump administration. Despite an 18-month delay, thousands of Haitians who fled the 2010 earthquake will lose their TPS status soon, and many fear that El Salvador will be next. DACA, an Obama-era program rescinded by the Trump administration in June, allowed some individuals who entered

the country as minors to remain legally and receive work permits. During Monday’s meeting among the speakers was Karen Flores, a sophomore at EHS. Flores has lived in Everett her entire life, but her parents come from El Salvador. “Everybody I know who are immigrants and have parents who don’t have stable documents are scared that one day they’ll come home and their parents won’t be there, or that one day they’re going to be sent off to a place that’s no longer their home, because this is their home,” said Flores. Joel Rodriguez, an 18-yearold Pioneer Charter School of Science graduate and LaSalle College freshman, also spoke in support of the resolution. Rodriguez’s parents are also from El Salvador, and when his grandfather passed away recently, the uncertainty surrounding his father’s immigration prevented the family from traveling to Belize to attend

as general manager Bill Terlecky announced the signings of UMass Lowell freshman outfielder Jeff Mejia and sophomore pitcher Matt O’Connor on Monday. “There is no substitute for experience on a summer collegiate baseball roster, so we’re excited to have both Jeff and Matt returning to the team after strong showings last summer,” Terlecky said. “I know they will do a great job helping to lead the group we’re putting together, which includes several younger players.” Mejia was the lone rising

freshman position player on North Shore’s roster at the end of last summer as he joined the club after graduating from North Reading High School. The former Cape Ann League All-Star played in 44 of the Navs’ 53 games across all three outfield positions, hitting .248 while finishing second on the team with 25 walks. He recorded six extra-base hits, 11 RBI, and was one of four Navs to reach base in 10 consecutive games at any point in 2017. O’Connor made seven of

Tide basketball team set to host Saugus By Julian Cardillo

T

he Everett High School basketball team is on the precipice of two eras. This winter sports season will be the last one for Crimson Tide basketball

coach John DiBiaso, who is also the Crimson Tide football coach and athletic director. But the Everett hoops team will hope that DiBiaso can deliver some more end of career magic, similarly to what he did with his foot-

ball team, which won the Super Bowl for the second year in a row two weeks ago. The Everett basketball team has been here before – five straight times now, in fact – but that doesn’t make it any

easier. It actually might make it worse. Everett lost in the Division 1 north semifinals for the fifth straight time last season. They came close to making the finals, only losing, 68-65, to Central Catholic at North Andover.

That said, the team was still able to secure the final Greater Boston League title. Everett hosts Saugus tonight. The Sachems are a division 3 outfit that barely scraped into the post-season last year.

Kainen, Tide hockey look forward to Revere clash By Julian Cardillo

T

he Everett High School hockey team opens the season tonight against Revere. Second-year coach Eric Kainen is hoping to see his squad improve every day and for his players to buy into the team culture. No one will captain the Crimson Tide exclusively this season; the team voted in a leadership group of five

people, all seniors, and the “C” will rotate among Jason Cardinale, Nathan Johnson and Brendan Calderon. “We want kids to have the experience of leading the team when they’ve earned the right based on what they do on and off the ice,” Kainen said. “We want to compete hard every day and learn from our mistakes. As coaches, we also want to help each player get better every day.”

Kainen said he is behind his team’s new approach to leadership. “The leadership group leads by example,” Kainen added. “Talk is cheap. Anyone can do it. These guys walk the

walk, and that’s what matters.” Kainen is expecting a stiff test tonight against Revere, who narrowly missed out on the post-season last year. “Very good opponent – grit-

ty,” Kainen said. “It’s always a rivalry game. I expect it to be emotional, tough and physical. We want the guys to take care of their shift and let the game take care of itself.”

Everett alumni hockey event on December 27 K

ainen is calling on all Everett High School hockey alumni to attend the annual alumni game and party on Wednesday, December 27 at Allied Veterans Rink. “All are invited,” Kainen said. “We don’t want our family to forget where they came from. We want our alumni to connect with current players. For the current crop, they belong to a long line of Everett players. It will be a fun night.”

UMASS | FROM PAGE 8 his nine appearances out of the North Shore rotation last summer and was one of three pitchers on the team to record more than two wins, earning his three in succession from June 23 to July 10. Before making his Navs debut, the Malden native pitched one scoreless inning and recorded a strikeout during his freshman season with the River Hawks. He also captained the basketball team and was a two-sport Commonwealth Athletic Conference All-Star during his high school career at Mystic Valley Regional Charter School. UMass Lowell has been the collegiate home of eight players in North Shore’s franchise history, but Mejia and O’Connor join three-year pitcher Steve Xirinachs as the only River Hawks to spend more than one summer in Lynn during their careers at the school. The Navigators will be announcing more additions to the roster in the coming weeks

and months in preparation for the 2018 season, which begins on May 31.

CITY COUNCIL | FROM PAGE 3 his funeral. “All of my father’s side of the family are there and need his support, but because of my father’s status he will not be able to say his final goodbye to his father,” said Rodriguez. “As his son, this makes

me feel very devastated. Imagine trying to console a weeping man to tell him that everything’s going to be better, but you know that not being able to say goodbye to your father will always linger in your mind and have an effect.” Councillors – who initially

intended to pass the resolution last week before discovering that one of their rules required the matter go before their Legislative Affairs Committee, thus delaying the vote for two weeks – were largely supportive of the speakers and the resolution.

“Never in my wildest dreams would I ever have thought that people would be living in our community [who] would be afraid,” said Councillor-at-Large Peter Napolitano. “And what are they afraid of? They’re afraid of the rhetoric that’s coming out of the

White House. What is that we’re fearful of from these people? They’re hard workers, they’re taxpayers, many are citizens through their families. It’s just ridiculous that we’ve come to this point. There are no differences here, and there shouldn’t be any differences here. These people live here; they’ve chosen to make Everett their home, the same as many of our families have in the past.” “It’s an honor to be able to take this vote in support of the families of Everett,” said Ward 6 Councillor Michael McLaughlin. “I hope and pray that this will go very far and will be able to make an impact in a positive manner. … It’s the job that we’re elected to do and will continue to do to protect every resident of the city of Everett, no matter their status.” Ward 2 Stephen Simonelli was the lone nay vote.

Residents were then entertained with traditional Christmas carols by local area groups, including the Girl Scouts, Everett High School’s PopVox Choir, Rebecca Zamas, On Pointe Dance Academy and Joni Star Dancers – as well as holiday performances by Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus. Mayor DeMaria, along with the First Lady, Stacy DeMaria, and their children Carlo, Caroline and Alexandra, officially started Everett’s holiday season by lighting Everett Square’s Christmas tree. Mayor DeMaria extended a special thanks to the Grasso Family of Newton Street in Everett for donating this year’s tree, which is donned with over 2,000 twinkling lights and decorations. It illuminates Everett Square as a beacon of holiday spirit. Attendees also enjoyed a Santa’s Village area that included sleigh rides on a real horse and carriage through the square, making their own Christmas decorations, a balloon twister and freshly popped popcorn courtesy of Mayor DeMaria.

THE HOUSE AND SENATE: Beacon Hill Roll Call records local senator’s votes on three roll calls from the week of December 4-8. There were no roll calls in the House last week. SEN. STAN ROSENBERG RESIGNS FROM SENATE PRESIDENCY–”I believe taking a leave of absence from the Senate Presidency during the investigation is in the best interest of the Senate,” said Sen. Stan Rosenberg (D-Amherst). ”I want to ensure that the investigation is fully independent and credible, and that anyone who wishes to come forward will feel confident that there will be no retaliation.” Last week saw Rosenberg’s resignation, the election of Worcester’s Sen. Harriette Chandler, the majority leader and second-in-command in the Senate, to replace him for now and the beginning of an investigation by the Senate Ethics Committee into allegations in the Boston Globe that Rosenberg’s husband, Bryon Hefner, groped three men and kissed another one against his will. The Globe story also included claims that Hefner has said he speaks for Rosenberg and talks about Senate business with legislators and their staffs. ”Choices had to be made and today we’ve chosen to move on and to move forward,” Chandler said. ”What’s most important right now is that we work towards a swift and resolute conclusion to this whole sad event.” Chandler has stated that she plans only to serve as interim president and to step down when Rosenberg returns, or a new Senate president is elected.” ”I have repeatedly made clear that Bryon was to have no influence on what happens in the Senate,” said Rosenberg. “He has no influence over policy, the internal operations of the Senate, or any Senate-related business. If Bryon claimed to have influence over my decisions or over the Senate, he should not have said that. It is simply not true.” The Senate empowered the Ethics Committee to begin the investigation of the sexual assault charges against Hefner, whether Rosenberg violated any rules of the Senate and if Hefner did have any influence over what happens in the Senate. ”I think it’s really important that this gets started,” said Gov. Charlie Baker. ”It’s going to be really important for Chandler and for all of the members of the Ethics Committee to demonstrate by both who they choose and what the rules are that whoever it is that’s conducting this investigation has the latitude and the independence to provide comfort to those people who are going to come forward who were victimized — that they won’t suffer repercussions for doing so.” ”I wish to reemphasize that the most important thing is to make sure that anyone who may have been hurt has every assurance that they can turn to whatever authority they feel comfortable with, with absolutely no fear of retribution, and to restore confidence in the Senate,” said Rosenberg in a written statement. ”During my leave of absence from being Senate president, I look forward to a thorough, fair, and independent investigation. I thank my colleagues for providing this opportunity and have every confidence that the Acting President will help the Senate focus on a robust agenda for 2018.” ”I am deeply disturbed by these allegations which jeopardize the integrity of the Senate,” said

Sen. Michael Rodrigues (D-Westport), chairman of the Ethics Committee. ”Sexual harassment and assault have no place in the Massachusetts state Senate or any workplace. I am committed to a fair and thorough review of the facts as well as a process that ensures confidentiality for any person who has any information to report on sexual harassment or sexual assaults.” The Senate cannot bring criminal charges against anyone. However, Attorney General Maura Healey and Suffolk County District Attorney Dan Conley issued a joint statement that encourages victims to come forward. ”We ask anyone with this information to contact either office, and we remind every survivor of sexual assault that they can count on us to provide a safe, respectful, victim-centered environment, no matter what the circumstances might be.” said the two prosecutors. ”Sexual assault is a crime and we want to send a clear message that harassment and assault of any kind will not be tolerated.” No one knows if Rosenberg’s will return as Senate president or whether the Senate will elect a new permanent one. Everything hinges on the outcome of the probe. However, ”just in case,” four senators are said to be already jockeying for votes for Senate President: Sens. Sal DiDomenico (D-Everett), Linda Dorcena Forry (D-Boston), Karen Spilka (D-Ashland) and Eileen Donoghue. (D-Lowell). Here are the votes of local senators on Chandler’s election, opening the investigation and recusing Rosenberg and his staff from all decisions relating to the investigation. CHANDLER ELECTED SENATE PRESIDENT Senate 31-6, elected Sen. Harriette Chandler as president. The vote, as expected, was straight along party lines with all the Democrats voting for Chandler and all Republicans casting their vote for Minority Leader Bruce Tarr (R-Gloucester). Sen. Sal DiDomenico

Voted for Chandler

AUTHORIZE INVESTIGATION (S 2228) Senate 37-0, authorized the Senate Ethics Committee to retain a special investigator to investigate the question of whether Rosenberg violated the rules of the Senate. The investigation is in response to claims that Hefner bragged that he has influence over Rosenberg, speaks for him and talks about Senate business with legislators and their staffs. (A ”Yes” vote is for the investigation and appointment of a special investigator.) Sen. Sal DiDomenico

Yes

RECUSE ROSENBERG AND HIS STAFF (S 2227) Senate 37-0, approved an order that Rosenberg and his entire Senate staff be recused from all decisions relating to investigations of the conduct of Rosenberg or Hefner. (A ”Yes” vote is for recusal.) 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 December 4-8, the House met for a total of 59 minutes while the Senate met for a total of eight hours and 53 minutes.

Mon. December 4 House 11:04 a.m. to 11:11 a.m. Tues. December 5 No House session Wed. December 6 No House session Thurs. December 7 House 11:07 a.m. to 11:59 a.m. Fri. December 8 No House session

RECENT MASSHEALTH HEARING DECISION O n November 30, 2017, we received on behalf of one of our clients an important favorable hearing decision from a Board of Hearings Officer. The case involved a condo held inside of an irrevocable trust. The husband applied for MassHealth longterm care nursing home benefits and was denied on November 28, 2016. We filed an appeal on December 5, 2016. We received MassHealth’s first legal memorandum setting forth its arguments as to why the condo held in the trust was a countable asset. We had until February 21, 2017 to submit our response. Then MassHealth was given until March 14, 2017 to respond to our legal memorandum. We were then given until April 4, 2017 to respond to MassHealth again. Then on June 28, 2017 the hearing officer re-opened the record in light of the Supreme Judicial Court’s decision in the Daley/Nadeau cases in order for both MassHealth and us to respond to the decision. The SJC heard the Daley and Nadeau cases as part of one proceeding due to such similar factual issues. MassHealth was given until July 19, 2017 to further respond and we were given until August 9, 2017 to submit our final argument. The crux of MassHealth’s argument was based upon a use and occupancy provision included in the trust that benefitted both of the Settlors of the Trust (i.e. the two individuals that created the trust). MassHealth essentially came up with a FMV rent for the condo based upon HUD guidelines in the amount of $1,500 per month, or $18,000 per year. It then multiplied the result times 8 years, the applicant’s life expectancy, to arrive at a figure of $144,000. MassHealth simply deemed this figure to be the amount of excess assets that would need to be spent down on nursing home costs.

The hearing officer completely rebuked M assHealth’s argument stating that the right to use, occupy and possess real estate held in such an irrevocable trust does not make any of it “countable” for MassHealth eligibility purposes. The hearing officer also stated that MassHealth would have to take half of the $1,500 figure as the spouse is still living in the condo, and that you should also be deducting monthly expenses from this “imputed” rent income figure in order to arrive at “net” rental income. The SJC did state that such a right to use, occupy and possess is considered a payment of income. In other words, the couple could opt to move in one of their children’s home and rent the condo out to a third party for fair market value rent. So the only issue left to decide is whether or not MassHealth will seek an increase in the Patient Pay Amount (PPA) based upon any theory of imputed net rental income. Such an amount would be added to the applicant’s social security income and would be paid to the nursing home each month. We are awaiting MassHealth’s decision on that issue. This is an issue of first impression in Massachusetts. As you can see, these appeals are extended over a great length of time, but the fight by elder law attorneys must continue on.

City lights tree at Glendale Towers for annual celebration O

n Monday, December 11, residents of Glendale Towers were delighted to take part once again in their Annual Christmas Tree Lighting celebration. Mayor Carlo DeMaria, along with State Senator Sal DiDomenico, State Representative Joe McGonagle, City Council President Anthony DiPierro and members of the City Council, offered the City’s holiday greetings and well wishes to the resi-

dents and neighbors at 381 Ferry St. Mayor DeMaria and his administration continue to showcase why the City of Everett appreciates its senior residents. This year, the tree lighting event consisted of an array of delicious food provided by Mayor DeMaria and the Council on Aging, and entertainment from versatile singer Bobby G. Mayor DeMaria stated, “We really wanted to host a new and

better version of this event to thank you for all you’ve done for this city. We appreciate it and we appreciate you.” Mayor DeMaria cares about Everett’s seniors. He also stated, “We will continue to host special occasions like this throughout the year with our seniors. Some of my most memorable times as being Mayor is talking with the seniors, hearing their feedback and helping them out as much as possible.”

Community Health & Wellness Center holds merry toy drive

O

n Sunday, December 10, Mayor Carlo DeMaria and the Everett Community Health & Wellness Center held a successful toy drive to help support the families and children of Everett. Mayor DeMaria’s goal each holiday season is to help provide gifts to the children of Everett who need it the most. Following his lead, Health & Wellness Center employees coordinated a toy drive at the gym among employees, members and Everett residents. The toy drive will make a real difference, with hundreds of toys going to help Everett families. Mayor DeMaria stated, “Our work together over this holiday season continues to demonstrate the importance of helping those in need. This time of year is a time of giving. I want to thank the employees and members of the Wellness Center for helping to spread health and joy among the children of Everett.” For many of the kids the DeMaria administration serves, the holidays are difficult. Due to the current economic climate, requests for assistance have grown again this year, while the number of agencies offering assistance has been reduced. The generous support from local businesses and residents is what allows Everett to continue to provide support to the hundreds of local families and children in need. Last year’s citywide toy drive successfully provided for 700 children.

Mayor and EPD expand Cop’s Corner to all Everett Public Schools

M

ayor Carlo DeMaria is pleased to announce the expansion of the popular initiative Cop’s Corner in all Everett Public Schools. Mayor DeMaria, Police Chief Steven Mazzie and members of the Everett Police Department’s Impact Team are visiting schools throughout the city to speak with 6th, 7th and 8th grade students about the program.

Co p’s Co r n e r s u p p o r t s p o s i t i ve p u b l i c i n t e r a c tion and encourages students to speak with officers on any concerns that they might have. The initiative aims to establish long-term, real connections between youths, law enforcement and distinguished members of our community. In order to help students grow into responsible and successful

members of the community, this program’s goals are to foster trust and positive relationships. M ayor DeM aria stated, “Emotions are contagious. When we treat students and adults with respect, they’re much more likely to do the same to others; however, to promote respectful schools, we need to do much more. A foundation for respect-

ful schools is to measure – and, thus publicly recognize – how we treat one another and then use this information to create safer and more suppor tive, engaging, challenging and joy-

ful schools. By doing so, we can reinvigorate our community and encourage students to better understand the world in which they live – and their role in improving it.”

THE EVERETT ADVOCATEâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;Friday, December 15, 2017

COMMUNITY | FROM PAGE 10 wood Street â&#x20AC;&#x201C; also known as the Norwood Express â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and fire pits, carolers, characters from the movie â&#x20AC;&#x153;Frozen,â&#x20AC;? a live toy soldier, and a live ice sculpture performance. This year photos with Santa were taken during the tree lighting event and were set in front of the Parlin Library. The scene was transformed into a Christmas winter theme and was free of charge. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everett is such a strong community filled with compassionate and caring people, and it really shows during the holiday season,â&#x20AC;? stated Mayor DeMaria. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Every year City officials, businesses and residents alike join together to celebrate Everettâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Tree Lighting Ceremony. I would like to once again extend the Cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s appreciation to the Grasso Family for donating such a beautiful tree, the Everett Chamber of Commerce and City employees for organizing a great event.â&#x20AC;?
