Looking back on 2018

280 Club of Salem Towers hosts Toys for Tots drive C

By Barbara Taormina

hoosing items for a yearin-review is always a challenge. People have different opinions about which stories were the most important, and what news had the biggest impact on the city. No one would argue that 2018 was a busy and eventful year. Nevertheless, the following short list contains some of year’s most important moments and issues for Malden.:

Vote16 n late August, members of Malden Rising Leaders Summer Fellowship Program presented a proposal to lower the voting age to 16 in municipal elections, and the idea quickly picked up steam. The Malden Youth Civics Council and other student groups joined forces with MRL and several city leaders including School Superintendent John Oteri threw their support behind the idea. Councilor Steve Winslow helped the students draft a petition to the state legislature to change the city charter, the first official step toward lowering the voting age. Malden voters would also have been required to approve the change through a ballot question. But in December, the City Council voted against petitioning the legislature for approval to start the process. Councilors felt they needed more input from constituents before moving forward with the proposal. Still, the campaign for Vote16 isn’t over. MRL founder and President Ted LouisJacques recently posted an online message that criticized city officials who stood in the way of change. And that’s not all. “2019 is an Election Year, campaign season is around the corner,� wrote LouisJacques. “#Vote16Initiative will be on the forefront! We will hold you accountable. Our citizens deserve better, out students deserve better, our city deserve better. Change is not painful, only resistance to change is painful. Put equity, justice and equality first, do the right thing.�

The 280 Club of Salem Towers in Malden organized a building-wide toy drive for Toys for Tots. Toys, games, sports equipment and gift cards were some items that were donated. The items were accepted by Sgt. Joshua Wilson at an afternoon collation. Shown, from left to right, are Evelyn Kayser, Sgt. Wilson, Patti Desiderio and Maureen Fritz. (Advocate photo by Ross Scabin)

City Council discusses Lime bikes By Barbara Taormina ince they have arrived in Malden, Lime Bikes have been on 80,000 trips and logged nearly 70,000 miles. Scott Mullen, a director of Lime’s Northeast division, met with the City Council recently to talk about the bike-sharing system. Malden is one of 16 communities that has a fleet

of “dockless� bikes available to riders thanks to a regional contract with the Metropolitan Area Planning Council (MAPC). Riders use an app on their cellphones to unlock bikes, which cost a $1 access fee plus a small fee based on time or mileage. “Malden has a great bike infrastructure and a great bike culture,� Mullen told councillors. Malden was the only community in the regional MAPC program to hit its projected number of rides. Mullen described Lime as a

mobility company that eases traffic on roadways, reduces carbon emissions and boosts public health. He stressed that Lime is a young company that continually monitors operations to work out any kinks and to offer new services that match a community’s needs. Councillors praised the program but asked about bikes that were being left in different places and parts of the city. “The bikes fill a gap that’s

Public Comment n hindsight, all the concerns raised about public comment at City Council meetings seem like much ado about nothing. In June, councilors voted unanimously to approve public comment, a 30-minute segment at the start of City Council meetings when the public can share their opinions and ideas about city business. And so far, it has worked as it was intended, no personal gripes, no grandstanding just an exchange of ideas and opinions. Instituting public comment was a pet project of this year’s City Council President Debbie DeMaria. It took several rounds of debate and a couple of votes but DeMaria was persistent. “This was a great win for Malden,� said DeMaria when public comment was finally approved. “I, and other councilors, look forward to another opportunity to hear from our constituents.�

I

World War I Memorial long overdue tribute was finally paid to the city’s World War I veterans this year. On Veterans Day, the city dedicated a refurbished and expanded World War I monument at Devir Park. The original monument only had the names of Edgeworth residents who served during the war. The new memorial, which has two new sections and the restored original section, contains the names of all city residents who served. “Today we go back in time to pay tribute and give thanks to the men and women from Malden who fought in World War I,� said Mayor Gary Christenson during the ceremony. “We do this by dedicating a memorial on the 100th anniversary of the end of that war that will forever honor these brave heroes in one location for the first time in city history.�

ailored for Success (TFS) is excited to announce a partnership with Appleton Partners, Inc. (www.appletonpartners.com). Over the past year, Appleton Partners has been supporting the mission of TFS through their commitment to “the communities in which they live and work.” Appleton Partners is a Boston-based investment firm that serves the wealth management needs of families, individuals, nonprofits and other institutions. The partnership began last April when TFS Executive Director Elizabeth Hart was invited to address the employees of Appleton Partners to kick off their philanthropy season. As a result, a clothing drive was held at Appleton Partners, and employees of Appleton donated several racks of clothing to support the Career Closet program that benefits women and men job seekers. The partnership continued when Appleton employees extended their support of TFS in July by assisting TFS at the Reggie Lewis Center in Roxbury as part of the United Way’s Project Connect. This was the second year that TFS was invited to participate in the event, and the TFS and Appleton employees provided 182 individuals with clothing. Lastly, in honor of Veterans Day, Appleton employees provided financial support to TFS’s Boots2Suits Program for Women Veterans by raising $1,000. This employee giving was doubled when Appleton Partners CEO Doug Chamberlain matched the employee giving dollar for dollar, making the financial contribution from Appleton $2,000. The Boot2Suits Program for Women Veterans provides active, retired military women and military spouses with free career and skill assessments, 1:1 job search guidance featuring customized resume development, interview preparation, access to workshops on topics that explore the issues surrounding transitioning from the military to civilian workforce, and free professional clothing. “Our partnership with Appleton Partners over the past year has had a tremendous im-

T

pact on our Boots2Suits program and our ability to provide services to those in need,” stated Hart. According to the state Veterans Administration, there are approximately 400,000 veterans in the Commonwealth and, at 32,000, women comprise the smallest segment of the veteran population. According to the Department of Labor, “Women veterans have higher unemployment rates than male veterans” and female veterans are the fastest growing segment of homeless veterans. The employees of Appleton understand the needs that the unemployed and underemployed have, and especially the small segment of the population that are women veterans. About Appleton Partners Appleton Partners is a 100% employee-owned and -operated investment advisor founded in 1986 and located in Boston, Mass. Entrusted with $9.7 billion of investor assets, Appleton Partners manages customized separate accounts for individual and institutional investors, while also serving the financial planning and wealth management needs of private clients.

ries. Even when surfaces do not look especially icy or slippery, it is very possible that a thin sheet of transparent ice or black ice is covering your pathway and putting you at risk. When you approach a footpath or roadway that appears to be covered with ice or snow, always use extreme caution. Many slips and falls happen in places people regard as safe and secure, typically outside their front door, on the doorstep, on the path or while getting out of the car. So, with the winter weather upon us, Mystic Valley Elder Services' Safety Committee advises these 10 tips to make sure you are staying safe when walking around in snowy and icy conditions: 1. Walk slowly and carefully. Wear boots or other slip-resistant footwear. 2. Use special care when getting in and out of vehicles. Use the vehicle for support if you need to do so. 3. Watch for slippery floors when you enter any building or home. 4. Avoid walking with your hands in your pockets; this can reduce your ability to catch yourself if you lose your balance. 5. Watch out for black ice. 6. Tap your foot on potentially slick areas to see if the areas are slippery. 7. Walk as flat-footedly as possible in very icy areas. 8. Avoid uneven surfaces if possible. Avoid steps or curbs covered with ice.

After Holiday Pasta Party success, MHSAA eyes 2020 Hall of Fame event he Malden High School Alumni Association (MHSAA), celebrating the success of its recent holiday pasta party, is looking forward to more exciting events to raise funds to benefit MHS students, particularly those in need, such as the induction of a new academic Hall of Fame class in 2020. The fourth annual postThanksgiving MHSAA Holiday Pasta Party “was just spectacular,� said MHSAA Vice President Patricia Kelly (’80) in summing up the event at a recent Board of Directors meeting. “Everyone had a great time, even though not as many showed up as last year,� said event chair MHSAA Vice President Carol Scally (’64). Nearly 140 people came to the family-friendly event at Anthony’s function hall in Malden and enjoyed tables of delicious pasta, meatballs and sauce, and seeing their children dance and play to lively music while awaiting the arrival of Santa. Many

T

of Malden’s luminaries attended, including Mayor Gary Christenson (’86), but any attempt to name them all would likely miss some, and that would not be nice. They know who they are, and we thank them for their support. We also want to thank Albert Spadafora and his staff for a job well done. The board agreed the MHSAA will host a pasta party again next holiday season, and it promises to be better than ever in that it will be celebrating the fifth the alumni have sponsored to raise funds for scholarships and other student needs as determined by the principal. Next year will see the return of our Super 50-50 Raffle to the affair in addition to the dozens of raffle items donated by area businesses and generous benefactors. An example of how students benefit from the raffles: The money raised by 2018’s raffles was by itself nearly enough to pay

for a $1,000 scholarship, one of many the MHSAA awards every year, said MHSAA Treasurer Camille Colantuoni (’70). Also tops on 2019’s agenda are planning an induction ceremony for the MHS Alumni Hall of Fame for 2020. Taking over this effort is MHSAA board member Fran Mauriello (’61), who said he and his committee are looking forward to the search for worthy candidates who deserve recognition for bringing pride to the MHS family. The date for this event will be announced later, as well as instructions on how to make nominations. Details for the various MHSAA programs, including naming seats in Jenkins Auditorium, can be found on www.maldenhighalumni.com. Questions can be directed to Patti Kelly (781-820-4749), Carol Scally (781-438-0864), David Haskell (781-324-2725) or other board members, whose contact info is on the website.

Malden to provide parents with tools to address youth substance abuse even cities and towns in the Mystic Valley Public Health Coalition (MVPHC), including Malden’s Substance Abuse Prevention Services, are banding together to launch a social marketing campaign aimed at preventing underage drinking and substance abuse among middle school–aged youngsters. The campaign comes after studies found that although parents and guardians would like their children to not use alcohol and other drugs, many expressed a belief that underage drinking is inevitable. Over the past two years, MVPHC, which includes Malden, Medford, Melrose, Reading, Stoneham, Winchester and Wakefield, has collected and evaluated data on youth alcohol and substance abuse. It has also conducted focus groups and one-on-one interviews with parents regarding their attitudes and behaviors in regard to youth alcohol and substance abuse. Their findings include the following: • Youth substance abuse in

S

the Mystic Valley region is higher than the state average; • Parents/guardians generally want to do the right thing but are not sure how to begin; • Parents/guardians are willing to talk with other parents but aren’t doing that currently; and • Some parents believe that alcohol use is a rite of passage and that allowing their children to drink as adolescents will teach them how to drink “responsibly.” “Although parents and guardians may believe that youth alcohol use is inevitable, research shows that parental intervention is effective in discouraging alcohol and substance use in children,” said MVPHC Substance Abuse Prevention Coordinator Elizabeth Parsons. “Our goal is to share fact-based information and tools they can use to have meaningful conversations with their children and adults in the community.” Prevention research shows that social marketing campaigns targeting parents are the

best way to change cultural attitudes and influence behavior. Parents in the MVPHC region reported that they get their news and information from print and online newspapers, radio, Facebook and in-person at community gathering spots and school and town meetings. Parents also heavily rely on information from school correspondence and medical professionals. The MVPHC campaign will leverage in-person communications, the MVPHC’s quarterly e-newsletter, and social media to reach its intended audience. “The MVPHC social marketing campaign will be aimed primarily at middle school families as that seems to be the time that parents and guardians are most ready for this message,” noted MVPHC Opioid Abuse Prevention Coordinator Lauren Chambers. “That said, it’s never too early or too late to address these issues with your kids.” The campaign will give realistic and actionable steps that parents can take to learn more about substance abuse preven-

tion, how to talk to their children and why and how to talk to other parents as well. Parents will be educated on the substance abuse issues that youngsters are facing and on tools that parents can use to have honest conversations with their children. In these conversations parents will be urged to communicate expectations, rules and consequences for alcohol and drug use. Lastly, parents will be encouraged to speak openly with other parents about their family position on alcohol and drug use in order to build a culture that values a healthy community for children. MVPHC’s work is supported by grants from the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, Bureau of Substance Addiction Services. For more information, visit www.mysticvalleypublichealth.org.

Malden boys’ basketball team falls in squeaker to Peabody, 68-66 By Steve Freker ast-minute wins are commonplace in high school sports; so are last-second victories. On Friday, Peabody delivered a big, old lump of coal in Malden High boys’ basketball’s stocking with a whole different category: a win featuring the winning basket scored with under one second left to play in the game. That’s right. With just 0.7 seconds left on the clock and the score tied at 66-all, Peabody’s Chris Canela found himself with a wide-open baseline and an easy layup as time expired, and when the horn blew, the Tanners had a 68-66 victory on the books. With the loss Malden went to 1-3 overall (0-2 Northeastern Conference) while Peabody evened off at 2-2 heading into the break. Peabody was off until last night when it hosted Masconomet Regional, while Malden was also idle until last night when it hosted the Revere Patriots in the semifinal of its own Tornado Holiday Classic.

L

See below. The Tanners took full advantage of some downright sluggish play by the host Malden team to race to leads of 15-12 after one quarter, 35-30 at halftime and then, after a 23-3 run in the third quarter, a 58-35 lead with three quarters played. Leading the way were Canela and Joe O’Neill, each scored 15 points for the night. O’Neill scored 10 of his points in the third quarter. Malden could not find a way to get the lid off the basket in that quarter, scoring only one basket and one free throw in the entire quarter while missing most of the shots the Golden Tornadoes took, layups or jumpers. For the last six minutes of the game; however, it was all Malden all the time. Playing its best basketball of the year, it seemed as if a switch turned on and ignited the Golden Tornadoes, who went fast and furious the rest of the way, going on a wild, 29-6 run of their own to tie it all up at 64-64 on Malden senior Ritho Montuna’s three-point shot (his only

points of the game). Senior captain Christian Monahan-DaSilva, senior Billy Stickney and junior Cameron Lloyd all hit big baskets in the run, with Lloyd burying a trio of three-pointers in the fourth-quarter onslaught. Tied at 66, Malden had the ball with 10 seconds left on the clock, but Lloyd was whistled for traveling while trying to drive through the key, and Peabody had its chance with five second left and possession. The game seemed destined for overtime when Malden senior Rashaud Moore knocked the ball out of bounds with under one second to play with 0.7 seconds showing on the game clock. But Canela ran through two quick screens and was wide open underneath, taking a pass from O’Neill and laying it in at the buzzer to start a raucous Tanners celebration. “We made a great comeback and the effort was there for most of that fourth quarter, but you have to play four quarters in this league [NEC] to get a win,” Malden head coach Don Nally said. “We need a whole game

and that’s what we will be working on again.” ***** Golden Tornadoes Holiday Classic Basketball Tournament is here Malden High 15-year head coach Don Nally has brought back the Golden Tornadoes Holiday Basketball Classic with a four-team roster, including Malden High School, Revere High School, Medford High School and Snowden International School in Boston. The Golden Tornadoes tourney began last night in the Finn Gym at Malden High and continues Saturday, December 29. On opening night Medford played Snowden at 6:00 p.m. and host Malden took on head coach Dave Leary’s Revere boys at 7:30 p.m. The consolation game will be played at 5:00 p.m. on Saturday, December 29, and the two semifinal winners will play for the tourney championship at 6:30 that night. ***** Malden drops pair of games

to St. John’s Prep & #10 Lynn English In previous action, after winning its opener over Tewksbury, Malden High boys’ basketball dropped a pair of games to two of the top teams in the region. Malden fell to the Prep, 77-63. The Golden Tornadoes stayed close within 12-14 points most of the night after St. John’s raced out to a 21-10 lead after the first quarter and never looked back. Junior Cameron Lloyd (12) and senior Christian Monahan-DaSilva (11) led Malden while Will Batchelder lit it up for the visiting Eagles with 30 points. Malden ran into a buzz saw against #10-ranked Lynn English on the road in a one-sided loss. Lynn English ran a full-court press defense from opening tap to the final whistle and built a 45-point lead during the game. ***** Malden returns to its NEC league schedule on Friday, January 4, when it plays on the road versus Swampscott with a 7:00 p.m. tap-off.

THE SPORTS WIRE By Steve Freker ow about these names, which clearly come from the “Blast from the Past” file: Jay Sweeney, Nick Papas, Dennis McHugh, John DiBiaso... Well, maybe not the last guy, He’s still around, just not coaching basketball anymore. Those were the coaches of the four teams that participated in the first-ever Golden Tornadoes Christmas Basketball Tournament, which was held in December 1985 at Malden High School. At the time, such an idea – a four-team, set-aside basketball tournament – was a novelty. Can’t say for sure if this was the first of its kind, but it is safe to say this was one of the first, for sure. The idea for this one was the brainchild of former Malden High head boys’ basketball coach Jay Sweeney (19821989), who drew up the idea that four teams which were basically landlocked together geographically could have a nice little tournament. Throw in the holiday setting and voilà, the tourney was born. The other three teams were Malden Catholic (headed up by McHugh), Melrose High (Papas) and Everett (DiBiaso). At the time, the mid-1980s, all

H

four teams were formidable both in their own leagues and in the region, Malden and Everett in the then 12-team Greater Boston League (GBL); Malden Catholic in the Catholic Conference; and Melrose in the Middlesex League, eight teams at the time. Additionally, in those years, all four teams were in Division 1 North for MIAA consideration in the postseason. All four were also perennial contenders for that D1 North trophy as well. It was good, competitive basketball and these four became even fiercer rivals than they had been before this “Fab Four” concept began. Sweeney’s intention had been for this to be a Malden tournament, played at Malden’s gym each year. But this was before anyone knew how this tourney would be received and what the interest would evolve into. It was a smash hit: big crowds, closely-fought games and more ammunition into the rivalry-building machine. At some point thereafter it was decided that the tournament would be revolving its site. This was greeted with open arms in Malden, but acceded to in the interest of keeping a good event going. The next year it was held at

Malden Catholic, then in Melrose. By then, around 1988, the intra-tourney rivalries among the four teams were percolating. Maybe that was one of the reasons the tourney did not survive much longer – a victim of the intensity meter that got turned up way high in those years in this immediate area. “Creative differences” perhaps? Indeed, in 1989 it was Melrose playmaker John Overlan’s dagger jumper with just seconds remaining that ended Coach Sweeney and the Golden Tornadoes’ season in the North Final before an overflow crowd at Salem High’s basketball valley. Sweeney abruptly announced his “retirement” shortly after the game. In 1991, Malden had a seven-point lead with just under a minute left, but saw Everett snatch a one-point win at UMass Boston in that year’s North Final. ***** For many years since, high school basketball tournaments and the winter break holidays have gone hand-in-hand. These types of tournaments, usually four teams with a semifinal and then finals rounds, have continued to flourish in

the succeeding decades to the point where it was hard to find teams not participating in a holiday basketball tournament. Malden High School basketball hosted many holiday tournaments through the years, but the gym has been idle over the past couple of December vacation breaks. Present Malden High head boys’ basketball coach Don Nally decided this year to bring back the holiday tourney in Malden this year. “It will be a good weekend of basketball for all four teams,” said Coach Nally, who has organized and coordinated a holiday tournament with as many as 12 teams in the past at Malden High, including boys and girls divisions. “We wanted to bring it back this year with some competitive teams, and we have a good mix. The schedules have not worked out the past couple of years with us playing in other tournaments and at the Garden, but this year is workable.” For Nally, it will be another opportunity for his Tornadoes to compete against a member of his own “coaching tree” as third-year Revere head coach Dave Leary is a former longtime varsity assistant who worked alongside Nally for many years before taking the

Revere reins for the 2016-17 season. “Dave’s (Leary) doing an excellent job at Revere. It will be good to match up with them over the holidays,” Coach Nally said. ***** Diversity is the name of the game when it comes to all the communities in this region these days, if not our country in general. So that is why we are fraught with the P.C. (politically correct) distancing of ourselves when it comes to using the word “Christmas” to describe the holiday celebrated by about 80 percent of the U.S. population on December 25. Perhaps we can get a Presidential decree to sever the cultural icon of Santa Claus from the religious part of the Christmas celebration so we can universally call December 25 what it is: Christmas. Let everyone revel in the Santa Claus/gift giving portion of the holiday if they wish. On the religious side, let folks decide for themselves. If you did celebrate Christmas the other day, hope you had a merry one! As for next week’s “End of the Holidays” extravaganza, have a Happy (Generic, no Religious or Socio-Economic Ties) New Year, everyone!

YEAR-IN-REVIEW | FROM PAGE 1 idents rushed to read the document, for those who were interested, it was a very big deal. But there will be more and even bigger city charter news coming in 2019. “Not surprisingly, the consolidated charter revealed a number of organizational inconsistencies, outdated pro-

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE - Friday, December 28, 2018 finding an empty spot isn’t so hard anymore. And parking will remain on the city’s agenda as the City Council’s Parking Committee hammers out a citywide parking program that restricts overnight parking and parking near the city’s two T stations to residents. There are still a lot of details to work out such as signs, visitor passes and fines, but

after years of discussions and several failed attempts, residential parking is within sight. “If we don’t do it this time, it’s an embarrassment,” said Councilor Craig Spadafora who has been a longtime advocate of residential parking. “Some residents will be upset, others won’t be. We have to agree to disagree and move forward.” Adopted in 1881 and amended more than 50 times, Malden’s City Charter is headed for a major review.

Malden Hospital he fate of the Malden Hospital site has been and will continue to be a big story for the city. The Fellsmere Housing Group has proposed a private residential development with roughly 250 condos and 18 single family homes. The project would require a zoning change for the site. The non-profit citizens group, the Friends of Fellsmere Heights, has teamed up with Boston Architectural College to develop an alternative proposal to use the 18-acre site to provide more open space and community resources. Funding remains a huge factor for the Friends who are looking at grants and Community Preservation Act funding to pay for their plan. Although no major public moves or decisions have been made, both sides continued to make their cases over the past year. In June, Debbie CroninWaelde, the chief nursing officer for MelroseWakefield Healthcare which owns the hospital site, spoke to the City Council on behalf of the healthcare organization. “Our ask is that you continue to work with us on the advancement of the Malden Hospital site,” she said. “I am here to express our strong belief that the project proposed by the Fellsmere Housing Group is the right plan to move this forward.” Peter Converse, whose family donated the land and the hospital to the city also visited the council to express his and his family’s views of the proposals. “To give up any of the open space left to the city we would think would be a crime, and certainly detrimental to the physical, mental and spiritual health of the city,” he said. “We believe to give up this land to developers for what sounds like pretty dense housing makes no sense whereas the proposal by the Friends of Fellsmere Heights in much preferred.”

Christenson has named Maria Luise from the Mayor’s Office and Ron Hogan who heads up the city’s parking department to serve on the committee with City Councilors Debbie DeMaria.,Ryan O’Malley and David Camell. The committee will start working at the beginning of the year with the goal of completing their review and recommendations by early summer. That schedule gives the city enough time to ensure that any changes that need voter approval will be on the ballot for the 2019 municipal election. Parking ast year, it was a challenge to find a parking space in downtown Malden.

For “Auld Lang Syne” – Hogmanay, Traditional Scottish New Year’s Celebration By Helen Breen ven the Scots themselves cannot agree on the meaning of the word “Hogmanay.” But they know it provides an opportunity for serious merrymaking in the New Year. Along with family celebrations, street festivals, fire festivals, some old rituals going back hundreds of year are practiced. While Edinburgh is “party central,” Hogmanay is widely observed throughout Scotland. Oliver Cromwell had banned the observance of Christmas in 1647. Even after his downfall in 1660, the “stricter” Scottish Presbyterian Church discouraged Yuletide festivities “as having no basis in the Bible.” Incredibly, Christmas remained a normal working day in the country until 1958. Yet, “the impulse to party, to exchange gifts, and to put the products of Scotland’s famous distilleries to good use, could not be repressed.” So the New Year’s Hogmanay celebrations all over Scotland have grown throughout the centuries. Traditions include:

ered it unlucky to carry liabilities into the New Year.

“REDDING” THE HOUSE The ritual of thoroughly cleaning the house, particularly the fireplace, is essential. Scots often “read the ashes” as one might read tealeaves. Fire is an important element of Hogmanay. After the cleanup, someone goes from room to room “carrying a smoking juniper branch to discourage evil spirits and chase away disease.” Debts would also be cleared because Scots consid-

FIRST FOOTING At the stroke of midnight, the man of the house would open the back door to let out the old year, then open the front door to welcome in the next. At this time neighbors visit each other bearing traditional gifts of shortbread or other treats. The host offers callers a small whisky – “a wee dram.” On January 1, the first person to enter a home, the “first foot,” could bring good

luck for the year to come. “Tall, dark handsome men” were preferred, while red-haired lasses were considered unlucky. THE “SAINING” OF THE HOUSE An old rural tradition involved “blessing the house and livestock with holy water from a local stream.” The lady of the household would carry a smoldering juniper branch throughout the home, “filling it with purifying smoke.” Mayhem might follow with the

company coughing and choking. Windows would be hastily thrown open. Those present would be encouraged to enjoy a “reviving dram” or two as the whiskey was passed around freely. BONFIRES and FIRE FESTIVALS Scottish people have long associated the New Year with fire “as a time of new opportunities and cleansing of old life.” Fire traditions vary from place to place. For example, a ceremony called “Flambeaux” is held in the village of Comrie in Perthshire. Revelers dip small trees in paraffin, light them, and carry them through the streets where they are then tossed on a huge bonfire. In another fishing town, old boats are burned and the dying embers brought home “to ward off evil such as witches that would contrive to wreck their small fleets.”

SINGING “AULD LANG SYNE” A rousing chorus of “Auld Lang Syne” is the iconic refrain at midnight on New Year’s Eve in Scotland as it is around the world. The poem, composed by the Scots’ beloved bard Robert Burn in 1788, is “set to the tune of a traditional folk song.” The title may be freely translated from dialect as “old long since” or “for old times sake.” The emotional appeal of the melody has made it popular at funerals, graduations, and farewell ceremonies through the centuries. Celebrating Robert Burns’s “life and work has become a national charismatic cult in Scotland since his untimely death” at at age 37 in 1796. Happy Hogmanay to all as you enjoy “a wee dram” when ushering in New Year’s 2019! (Source – tripsaavy.com with images from Pinterest.com) (Send comments to helenbreen@comcast.net)

Christmas Tree Removal in January 2019 he City will provide curbside pick-up of Christmas trees the week of January 7 through January 11, 2019. Trees should be placed curbside on your regular trash day. Since the trees will be recycled for composting and will be put through a chipping machine, they MUST be free of decorations, garland, tinsel, and wire and cannot be placed in a plastic bag. Malden residents may also bring trees to the DPW, 356 Commercial Street Monday through Friday 8 AM-4 PM and Saturday 8 AM to 12 noon. No wreaths will be picked up.

Scotsmen celebrate on Hogmanay with Fire Festivals like this one in Edinburgh. Believed to originate from a Viking ritual, the New Year inspires hope for health, prosperity, and new beginnings.

What You Should Know About Your Aging Parents Finances Dear Savvy Senior, My siblings and I don’t know much about our elderly parent’s financial situation or their wishes if something happens to them. When mom broke her hip last year, it got me thinking we need to be better prepared. What’s the best way to handle this, and what all should we know? Tentative Daughter Dear Tentative, Many adult children don’t know much about their elderly parent’s financial situation or end-of-life plans, but they need to. Getting up to speed on their finances, insurance policies, long-term care plans and other information is important because some day you might have to help them handle their financial affairs or care, or execute their estate plan after they die. Without this information, your job becomes much more difficult. Here are some tips that can help. Have the Conversation If you’re uncomfortable talking to your parents about this topic, use this column as a prompt or start by talking about your own finances or estate plan as a way to ease into it. Also see TheConversationProject.org, which offers free kits that can help you kick-start these discussions. It’s also a good idea to get your siblings involved too. This can help you head off possible hard feelings, plus, with others involved, your parents will know everyone is concerned. When you talk with your parents, you’ll need to collect some information, find out where they keep key documents and how they want certain things handled when they die or if they become incapacitated. Here’s a checklist of areas to focus on. PERSONAL & HEALTH INFORMATION • Contacts: Make a list of names and phone numbers of their doctors, lawyer, accountant, broker, tax preparer, insurance agent, etc. • Medical information: Make a copy of their medical history (any drug allergies, past surgeries, etc.) and a list of medications they take. • Personal documents: Find out where they keep their Social Security card, marriage license, military discharge papers, etc. • Secured places: Make a list of places they keep under lock

and key or protected by password, such as online accounts, safe deposit boxes, safe combination, security alarms, etc. • Pets: If they have a pet, what are their instructions for the animal’s care? • End of life: What are their wishes for organ or body donation, and their funeral instructions? If they’ve made pre-arrangements with a funeral home, get a copy of the agreement. LEGAL DOCUMENTS • Will: Do they have an updated will or trust, and where is it located? • Power of attorney: Do they have a power of attorney document that names someone to handle their financial matters if they become incapacitated? • Advance directives: Do they have a living will and a medical power of attorney that spells out their wishes regarding their end-of-life medical treatment? If they don’t have these documents prepared, now’s the time to make them. FINANCIAL RECORDS • Debts and liabilities: Make a list of any loans, leases or debt they have – mortgages owed, car loans, medical bills, credit card debts. Also, make a list of all their credit and charge cards, including the card numbers and contact information. • Financial accounts: Make a list of the banks and brokerage accounts they use (checking, savings, stocks, bonds, mutual funds, IRAs, etc.) and their contact information. • Company benefits: Make a list of any retirement plans, pensions or benefits from their former employers including the contact information of the benefits administrator. • Insurance: Make a list of the insurance policies they have (life, long-term care, home, auto, Medicare, etc.) including the policy numbers, agents and phone numbers. • Property: Make a list of the real estate, vehicles or other properties they own, rent or lease and where they keep the deeds, titles and loan or lease agreements. • Taxes: Find out where they keep copies of past year’s tax returns. For more tips, see the Eldercare Locator publication “Let’s Talk: Starting the Conversation about Health, Legal, Financial and End-of-Life Issues” at N4A. org/files/Conversations.pdf.

Jason Lewis Yes HOW LONG WAS LAST WEEKâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S SESSION? Beacon Hill Roll Call tracks the length of time that the House and Senate were in session each week.

They note that their jobs also involve committee work, re-

That takes away from the positive aspects of the program.â&#x20AC;? Mullen acknowledged that some riders leave the bikes in inconvenient and inappropriate spots. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Things do happen, and they are painful,â&#x20AC;? he said. But the company, which has a warehouse on Eastern Avenue, has foot patrols to retrieve bikes left in out-of-the-way places. Lime also has a compliance system that can limit access to riders who leave bikes and block Americans with Disabilities Act access on sidewalks. Mullen also repeatedly said the perception of abandoned bikes was worse than the actual problem. Councillors were happy to

search, 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 17-21, the House met for a total of eleven hours and 27 minutes while the Senate met for a total of 10 hours and 56 minutes.

hear that the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s warehouse is in Malden and that some of the 26 new jobs generated by Lime have gone to Malden residents. And as Councillor-at-Large Stephen Winslow pointed out, the city isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t paying anything for the bike-sharing service. And Lime seems to have something for every type of traveler. In addition to traditional bikes, Lime offers e-bikes that have a small motor installed in the rear to give riders a boost. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That helps someone who is in a suit and doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to get sweaty on the way to the office,â&#x20AC;? explained Mullen. The company also offers a share program with electric scooters that could eventually come to Malden. Ward 5 Councillor Barbara Murphy explained that Malden has an ordinance that bans any motor-powered bikes and scooters from the bike trail. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s supposed to be

pedal power on the bike path,â&#x20AC;? she said. Mullen seemed surprised by that news and said he would review the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s regulations. Lime has 300 bikes on the streets during most of the year. During the winter, the fleet is reduced but bikes are still available. Mullen said staff keeps a close watch on weather forecasts so that bikes can be moved to make way for the plows. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People ride in the winter, just not so much,â&#x20AC;? said Mullen. Other councillors acknowledged the benefits of the bikes but emphasized the need to keep them from blocking sidewalks and taking up space in yards. Ward 3 Councillor John Matheson said the program should meet the needs of the entire community. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want this to work for everybody, the people who ride the bikes and the people who do not,â&#x20AC;? he said.
