Superstars rock Lynnfield for secret concert By Melanie Higgins

O

n July 12, the Boston Globe reported that superstars Patriots’ Tight End Rob Gronkowski and singer Demi Lovato visited a Lynnfield household to host a secret concert and party sponsored by radio station Kiss 108. Kiss 108 is owned by the giant corporation iHeartMedia. The radio station’s marketing director, Joe Mazzei, confirmed the occurrence of the July 11 event with The Advocate on Wednesday. Mazzei said Lovato approached Kiss 108 to plan a release of her new single, “Sorry Not Sorry” around her tour, and

wanted to have it begin in Boston. “She could have chosen New York or another city, but she chose Boston,” Mazzei said. A Lynnfield house was chosen to debut her song, and 100 “lucky Kiss 108 winners” were selected to enjoy the concert. He could not reveal the exact location, although some Lynnfielders might already have an idea. Mazzei said that the house is a popular lodging destination for celebrities when visiting Boston, previously hosting Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and singer Shakira. Mazzei called it a “magical

The Lynnfield Public Library celebrated its 125th Anniversary last Friday.

By Melanie Higgins

T

he Lynnfield Library is rejoicing at its 125th anniversary, which it commemorated with a ceremony at its location at 18 Summer St. last Saturday. The ceremony was modestly attended, with a few keynote speakers and a band playing a performance. Kids and adults alike enjoyed a birthday cake and kids made crafts that are on display today. The Lynnfield Library was founded in 1892. It began at the Old Town Hall. In 1902, the town voted to have it moved to the former Central School House on the common where it stands today. Today, the library features a wrap-around porch that was installed in 1967. Like most libraries, the Lynnfield Library has gone through the pangs of transitioning into the digital age with the onset of computers and the internet. In 1981, the library adopted its first computerized catalog. At

the same time, it was the first library in the state to link with another library – Peabody – with the creation of “Noble Net.” Noble Net is a consortium of libraries “North Of Boston,” as the first three letters of the acronym suggest. And in 1985, it welcomed its first computers for the public to use. Over the years, it has celebrated other important milestones, such as the creation of the state “Bookmobile” in 1957, which allowed transportation of books in other libraries to Lynnfield’s, allowing users access to a wider selection. Recently, the library has adopted a “Comic-Con” (comic convention), with its first ever occurring last spring. In 2017, it has eliminated DVD rental fees and offers a number of new online programs aimed at the arts. In 2017, it has also established the Lynnfield Public Library Foundation, which will

weekend, more than 6,200 cyclists from more than 40 states and eight countries will return to Massachusetts to participate in the PMC, choosing from 12 routes of varying mileage that run through 46 towns. Cyclists are anywhere between 15 and 84-years-old and range from seasoned triathletes to weekend warriors who trained for this event alone and everything in between. “We are thrilled to be approaching our 38th PMC ride weekend. Seeing our growth

over the years has been truly incredible, and we look forward to achieving our fundraising goal of $48 million for Dana-Farber,” said Billy Starr, founder and executive director of the PMC. “We want to wish all of our riders and volunteers a safe and enjoyable ride weekend – I’ll see everyone out on the road.” Many riders participate in the PMC to honor a family member or friend lost to, or being treated for, cancer. More than 820 riders and volunteers are cancer survivors or current patients, considered “Living Proof” of the PMC mission to find a cure. The average cyclist trains for three months, solicits 40 sponsors and raises more than $7,000. Volunteers, spectators, donors and sponsors are part of the camaraderie on ride weekend, all working together toward a cure. No other single athletic event raises or contributes more money to charity than the PMC. Since 1980, the PMC has raised $547 million for adult and pediatric patient care and cancer research at Dana-Farber through the Jimmy Fund, its fundraising arm. In fact, the PMC is Dana-Farber’s largest single contributor, raising more than 52 percent of the Jimmy Fund’s annual revenue. The PMC is presented by the Red Sox Foundation and footwear manufacturer New Balance. To make a financial contribution to a rider from your town or become a virtual rider, visit www.

THE HOUSE AND SENATE. Beacon Hill Roll Call records local legislators’votes on roll calls from the week of July 17-21. REGULATE MARIJUANA (H 3818) House 136-11, Senate 32-6, approved and sent to Gov. Charlie Baker a conference committee compromise version of a bill changing some provisions and adding other provisions to the law, approved by voters on the 2016 ballot, legalizing the posses-

sion, growing and sale of marijuana. The House and Senate several weeks ago had approved different versions of the bill. The measure taxes all marijuana sales with a 10.75 percent excise tax, 6.25 percent state sales tax and a local option allowing cities and towns to impose an additional tax of up to 3 percent. In addition, any agreement between a retail marijuana establishment and a host community for the first five years may include a community impact fee of up to another 3 percent paid by the seller to the city or town to cover the costs imposed upon the municipality by the operation of the establishment. Medical marijuana remains tax-free. If a city or town voted against for the 2016 marijuana ballot question, the decision to prohibit or restrict marijuana establishments will be determined by the municipality’s governing body until December 2019. If a municipality approved the ballot initiative, the decision can only be made through a local city or town wide referendum. Other key provisions of the new law include: Allowing persons over 21 to give an ounce or less of marijuana to others; possess up to one ounce of marijuana outside their home and ten ounces in their home. Any quantity above one ounce in the home must be under lock and key. Allowing each person to grow six plants per person in his or her home, with a maximum of 12 plants per household. Prohibiting plants that can be

visible by neighbors or from a public place and putting growing areas under lock and key. Giving landlords the right to prohibit smoking or growing of marijuana on their properties. Allowing advertising on TV, radio, billboard, print or the Internet only in markets where at least 85 percent of the audience is over 21. Banning retail shops from being located near school zones. Jim Borghesani, Director of Communications for “Yes on 4,” the group that led the campaign to legalize marijuana said that he favors the lower 12 percent tax that voters approved and noted that while the final 20 percent tax is higher than he wanted, it is not nearly as high as the House’s original 28 percent tax. “We have said all along that the law passed by voters last November needed no fixes or improvement,” said Borghesani. “But the Legislature decided to change it, and we fought hard to ensure that the changes respected the will of the voters as much as possible. The final bill, thanks to the Senate’s moderate approach, did not include the damaging components of the House approach.” “A total tax rate of up to 20 percent is necessary to help regulate this new industry and to address inevitable challenges, primarily the increased exposure of marijuana to young people,“ said Rep. Rona Mariano (D-Quincy). “The black market will be searching for new customers and this bill calls for increased funding for early intervention services and public awareness campaigns, and provides significant barriers to prevent children of our communities from being indoctrinated into this market by advertising campaigns aimed to attract them.” “I don’t think in five years, 10 years, or 20 years from now, we’re going to look back on this decision to legalize marijuana and think it was the best decision for Massachusetts,” said Sen. Donald Humason (R-Westfield). “We’re already starting to see questions

~ Advocate Sports ~ Lynnfield Little League all-star 11’s take another step toward next year’s goal

Fan of the Judge

Drop state semifinal game to Brookline By Joe Mitchell

T

he Lynnfield Little League 11-year-old all-star team took another step toward next year’s goal of winning the state title in order to qualify for the New England Tournament in Bristol, Conn., just one step away from the World Series in Williamsport, Pa. As 10’s, they won the District 16 title, but lost in the State Section 4 Tournament. This year, they repeated as district champs and then went on to win the sectionals in Swampscott, which advanced them to the state finals last weekend in Holden, where they lost to Brookline, 11-2, in a semifinal game. East Taunton beat Pittsfield in the other preliminary matchup that set the stage for its win over Brookline, 12-3, to secure the state title on the 11-year-old level. “I hope they now realize they are a heckuva baseball team, who has learned never to give up,” said coach Matt Adamo. “They defi-

nitely continue to show that they love the game of baseball … But, hopefully, they also found out when they play teams like Brookline they pretty much have to play flawless baseball.” In the Brookline game, the Lynnfield boys trailed, 1-0, after one inning. They tried to rally back in the second after loading the bases with one out, but to no avail. Brookline scored four more times in the third, helped along by defensive miscues to break the game open. Lynnfield got untracked offensively in the fourth with a run on a solo shot by Christian Rosa. They tacked on another score in the fifth on an RBI single by Tyler Adamo that plated Nick Grousis, who doubled to begin the threat. He then stole third before waltzing home on Adamo’s hit. Cole Hawes also doubled in the game. Jarrett Scoppettuolo and Nick Lucich each singled once to go along with a base hit by Rosa after he connected on a round tripper.

Nathan Lopez pitched the first four innings on the mound, and he definitely deserved a better fate, taking into account those third inning errors. Anthony Grabau and Scoppettuolo each pitched an inning in relief. “This game definitely taught them that they can’t make mistakes against teams like Brookline, and they also have to take advantage of every offensive opportunity that comes their way,” said Adamo. “We hit some shots in this game, but [Brookline] made the plays to get them out of potential trouble.” There is still baseball to be played for these Little Leaguers this summer. They are now in the middle of the second session of the Bay State Tournament. They played Andover July 27 (after press deadline) before taking on host Lowell on Friday night at 8 p.m. The local stars will then head to Andover over the weekend to face Framingham (Saturday, 4 p.m.) and Lowell (Sunday, 2 p.m.).

about implementation and legal implications, so I anticipate we’ll see some buyer’s remorse on this question down the road.” “We have protected the right of adults to grow, possess and use marijuana,” said Sen. Pat Jehlen (D-Somerville), Senate chair of the Joint Committee on Marijuana Policy. “This bill increases public health and safety protections, and specifies ways to prevent products from appealing to young people. The tax rate remains among the lowest in the country, and the same as in Oregon, often seen as successful.” Rep. Diana DiZoglio (DMethuen) said she couldn’t support the bill because it did not include a substance abuse fund to combat the opioid epidemic and to pay for overall substance abuse prevention, education, treatment and recovery initiatives. She noted that the House leadership proposed raising taxes on marijuana to 28 percent, higher than what was passed on the ballot, citing the need to create such a fund. “When the final bill reached the floor, however, the bill had no substance abuse fund included but still raised the tax from 12 percent that voters approved to 20 percent,” said DiZoglio. “The additional marijuana revenue that was supposed to be used for a substance abuse fund will now instead be subject to appropriation and directed to the General Fund.” (A“Yes”vote is for the bill. A“No” vote is against it.) Rep. Stephan Hay Yes Rep. Bradley Jones Yes Rep. Theodore Speliotis Yes Rep. Thomas Walsh Yes Sen. Joan Lovely Yes Sen. Thomas McGee Yes FAIRNESS FOR PREGNANT WORKERS (H 3816) Senate 38-0, approved and sent to Gov. Baker the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act that prohibits an employer from discriminating against, refusing to employ or firing a woman because she is pregnant or has a condition related to pregnancy. The measure guarantees reasonable accommodations and safety measures for pregnant mothers. Reasonable accommodations include time off to recover from childbirth; more frequent, longer paid or unpaid breaks; acquiring or modifying equipment or seating arrangements; and a private non-bathroom space for expressing breast milk -- unless any of these would create an undue hardship on the employer. Supporters said a pregnant woman should not have to fear losing her job when she could continue working with some reasonable adjustments.They argued that no one should have to choose between a healthy pregnancy and a weekly paycheck.

(A “Yes” vote is for the bill.) Sen. Joan Lovely Yes Sen. Thomas McGee Yes SEX EDUCATION IN SCHOOLS (S 2113) Senate 31-6 approved and sent to the House a bill requiring that all public schools offering a comprehensive sexual health education curriculum must “provide medically accurate, age-appropriate sexual health education.” Under current law, public schools are not required to teach sex education and the bill does not change that but rather mandates that any schools that choose to teach sex education are required to follow a curriculum, based on age, that includes human anatomy; reproduction and sexual development; the benefits of abstinence and delaying sexual activity; the importance of effectively using contraceptives to prevent unintended pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases, including HIV and AIDS;ways to effectively discuss safe sexual activity; relationship and communication skills to form healthy, respectful relationships free of violence, coercion and intimidation; and information about gender identity and sexual orientation for all students, including recognition that people have different sexual orientations, gender identities and gender expressions. The measure also requires any school offering sex education to notify parents about the school’s sexual health education curriculum, give parents the right to withdraw a student from the instruction and create a process for parents to inspect the program instruction materials before the start of the course. Supporters said that under the bill, local cities and towns still have the authority and power to decide whether sex education is taught in their schools. They said the measure will ensure that schools that choose to teach sex education will have a framework to follow. They noted the bill will prepare students to make healthy decisions and will reduce teen pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases. Opponents said local school committees, parents, teachers and administrators should have the authority to decide what will be included in any sex education course that is offered. They noted the bill gives way too much power to the state Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) to mandate what kind of things are taught. They argued that the definition of “age appropriate” in the bill is vague and basically leaves that entire decision up to DESE. (A“Yes”vote is for the bill. A“No” vote is against it.) Sen. Joan Lovely Yes Sen. Thomas McGee Yes

Senate 9-29, rejected an amendment that would change the provision of the bill that allows parents to opt their child out of the sex education course and instead make the course an elective into which parents can opt. Amendment supporters said that if students go on a simple field trip, parents must opt in and it should be no different for a controversial sex education course. They said the opt in provision puts parents in control instead of having the state in control by default. Amendment opponents said the amendment would gut the bill and noted that as written, the bill does not require schools to offer a sex education course and if they do, then parents are can easily opt out of it. They argued that schools do not have an opt in for subjects like science, math and English. They said that it would be difficult to get a response from every parent and would require school districts to chase them down. (A“Yes”vote is for“opt in.”A“No” vote is for “opt out.”) Sen. Joan Lovely Yes Sen. Thomas McGee No

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 July 17-21, the House met for a total of 14 hours and 14 minutes and the Senate met for a total of 14 hours and 39 minutes. MON.

Joseph D. Cataldo “YOUR FINANCIAL FOCUS”

Post Daley/Nadeau SJC Decision And Masshealth’s Most Recent Argument

T

he recent Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court’s decision in the Daley/Nadeau cases essentially stated that a use and occupancy provision in an irrevocable trust did not make the home held in the irrevocable trust “available” and therefore did not make the home countable as an asset in a MassHealth eligibility determination proceeding. That was really good news. MassHealth is now arguing that such a provision still somehow leads to countable assets in determining MassHealth eligibility even though the only asset in the trust is the home. Here’s its incredulous argument in a nutshell: MassHealth is imputing a monthly fair market rental for the use, occupancy and possession of the home. Let’s say the monthly fair market value rent is $1,500. It then utilizes a Social Security Administration actuarial life expectancy table and determines the life expectancy of the MassHealth applicant. Let’s assume the life expectancy is 7 years. MassHealth will multiply $1,500 x 12 months x 7 years to arrive at a figure of $126,000. It then absurdly argues that this in effect is the countable assets of the applicant. Let’s not even talk about its failure to utilize a “present value of the future cash flows” analysis.In other words, the sum of a future stream of monthly income is simply worth less if you valued it as of today. Why? The time value of money. Firstly, MassHealth seems to not understand the concept of “net” income. Gross rental income is the starting point. In order to determine the monthly net income that might be available to the applicant if the trust were to rent out the home, you would have to first de-

duct the monthly real estate taxes, insurance, water and sewer, condo fees, repairs and maintenance, etc. in order to arrive at a net income figure. MassHealth also is failing to recognize that a spouse is still living in the home, in which case, the home would not be rented out to a third party. The spouse athome would continue to pay for all of the monthly operating expenses. Where is the monthly income benefit available to the applicant to be used for the payment of his or her nursing home expenses in that instance? I don’t see it at all. MassHealth is attempting to create countable assets that exist today yet net rental income receivedtwo years from now is simply not available to be used for nursing home care today, never mind 7 years from now. MassHealth shows no consistency in its analysis of the law. It also shows a complete and total lack of good faith and fair dealing. As an example, if $500,000 is held in an income only irrevocable trust, no one disagrees that only the net income from that trust must be paid towards the applicant’s nursing home care as part of the PPA (Patient Pay Amount). So, if the interest income for the year was $10,000 and there were no trust expenses, only $10,000 would have to be paid directly to the nursing home each year. Even MassHealth agrees with this rule of construction. MassHealth has never argued under this scenario that you should take $10,000 x 7 years of life expectancy and come up with $70,000 of excess assets of the applicant. Net income is net income. It should not matter whether the trust investment is cash in a bank, a stock portfolio or rental real estate. The bottom line is the fight will continue due to the advocacy of the elder law bar. If MassHealth goes unchallenged, well-settled Trust law as we know it will be completely marginalized and the elderly will certainly be hurt.

Dear Savvy Senior, How does one go about choosing a walker? I have some balance issues along with arthritis in my knee and could use a little more help than a cane provides. Unsteady at 70 Dear Unsteady, When it comes to choosing a walker, there are various styles and options to consider, but selecting the best one for you will depend on your needs, as well as where you’ll be using it. Here are some tips that can help you choose. Types of Walkers There are three basic types of walkers on the market today. To help you choose, consider the type of support you’ll need. Then, pay a visit to a medical equipment store or pharmacy (see Medicare.gov/SupplierDirectory) that sells walkers so you can test-walk a few. Here are the different types you’ll have to choose from. Standard walker: This is the most basic style of walker that has four legs with rubber-based feet (no wheels), is very lightweight (around 6 pounds) and costs between $50 and $100. This type of walker must be picked up and moved forward as you walk, so it’s best suited for people who need significant weight bearing support, or who are walking very short distances. Two-wheeled walker: This has the same four-leg style as the standard walker except it has wheels on the two front legs that allow you to easily push the walker forward without lifting, while the back legs glide across the floor providing support while you step forward. These are best for people with balance issues, and are priced at around $60 to $120. Rollator: This is a rolling walker that has wheels on all four (or three) legs. These work best for people who need assistance with balance or endurance inside or outside the home, but require some upper body strength to prevent them from rolling out from under you. Rollators typically come with a built-in seat, basket and hand-breaks. Or, for those with hand arthritis or gripping problems, there are rollators with pushdown brakes that engage with downward pressure, and will lock if you sit on the seat. Rollators typically run between $75 and $225. Other Tips After deciding on a type of walker, there a few additional things you need to double-check to ensure it meets your needs. First, if you’re a large person, make sure the walker’s weight capacity will support you. And if you choose a rollator, check to see if your body can fit between the handgrips when sitting. Also make sure the height of the walker is set appropriately for you. To do this, stand with your arms relaxed at your sides. The handgrips of the walker should line up with the crease on the inside of your wrist. You also need to check that the walker folds easily for transport and storage, and that it’s light enough to lift into your car. Test the handgrips to make sure they’re comfortable. And, be sure you measure the doorways in your home to ensure your walker will fit through them. If you have narrow doorways consider installing “swing clear” offset door hinges as a simple and affordable way to widen them an extra two inches. Walkers also have lots of accessories that can be added for your convenience such as food tray attachments, tote bags for carrying personal items, oxygen tank holders, and tennis ball walker glides that go over the feet of a standard walker to help it slide more easily across the floor. For more tips on how to choose and use a walker, visit Mayoclinic.com/health/walker/HA00060. It’s also a smart idea to work with your doctor or a physical therapist, and be sure to get a written prescription, as Medicare will cover 80 percent of the cost.

THE LYNNFIELD ADVOCATE – Friday, July 28, 2017

Page 13

Rep. Jones supports stronger protections for Lynnfield as state marijuana law is implemented

H

ouse Minority Leader Bradley H. Jones, Jr. (R-North Reading) is backing a compromise bill that will give the Town of Lynnfield greater flexibility to decide whether to prohibit or limit the number of local dispensaries allowed under the state’s new recreational marijuana law. The compromise bill, House No. 3818, An Act to ensure safe access to medical and adultuse of marijuana in the Commonwealth, allows cities and towns to implement reasonable safeguards on the operation of marijuana establishments through local bylaws and ordinances, or

Bradley H. Jones, Jr. House Minority Leader

to impose an outright ban. The bill, which represents a compromise between differing marijuana proposals passed by the House and Senate in June, was

approved by the House of Representatives on a vote of 136-11 on July 19. Under the H.3818 bill, communities that opposed the November 2016 ballot question will have the option to unilaterally ban marijuana establishments within their borders through a vote of the local governing authority. In Lynnfield, where the ballot question was rejected on a vote of 4,5723,030, the town would be able to prohibit recreational marijuana dispensaries with a simple majority vote of the Board of Selectmen. If the Selectmen

fail to take such a vote before December 31, 2019, the town could still ban marijuana facilities but would then need to do so through a community-wide referendum. “The residents of Lynnfield voted overwhelmingly against legalizing recreational marijuana, and this bill gives the town the flexibility it needs to ensure that the will of the voters is upheld moving forward,” said Representative Jones. “This bill rep-

resents a reasonable compromise that empowers municipalities by giving them greater control over how the new marijuana law will be implemented at the local level.” In communities that approved the 2016 ballot question, any attempts to ban or limit the number of marijuana dispensaries would have to be approved by a municipal ballot
