New study will create a vision for Everett’s waterfront By Barbara Taormina boat house, pedestrian bridges, parks, paths and stretches of green space are just a few of the ideas being proposed for Everett’s waterfront. The Mystic River Watershed Association (MyRWA) has launched a new study that will provide a master plan for a seamless green corridor along both sides of the Malden River. MyRWA is working with Everett, Malden and Medford and local groups, such as the Friends of the Malden River and Bike to the Sea, on a plan that will restore public access to the river with connected parklands and paths. MyWRA held the first of

THE EVERETT ADVOCATE - Friday, June 30, 2017

Page 2 THE HOUSE AND SENATE: This weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s roll calls are from the week of June 19-23. The report shows how local senators and representatives voted on House and Senate versions of a bill making changes and imposing new regulations on how the state will regulate the retail sale and cultivation of marijuana. A House-Senate conference committee will soon hammer out a compromise version and present it to the House and Senate. Representatives proposed 121 amendments to the bill yet there were only five roll calls during the ten hours it considered the bill. Senators proposed 110 amendments with only five roll calls during its ten hours. Many of the amendments were not debated but simply approved or defeated on a predetermined unrecorded voice vote. Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the way it works: The fate of each of these amendments were determined earlier by the leadership. The presiding officer in the House or Senate disposes of these amendments by saying, â&#x20AC;&#x153;All those in favor of the amendment say â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;aye,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; those opposed say â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;no.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; The noâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s have it and the amendments are not adopted.â&#x20AC;? Or if the fate is approval, it sounds

like this: â&#x20AC;&#x153;All those in favor of the amendment say â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;aye,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; those opposed say â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;no.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; The ayes have it and the amendments are adopted.â&#x20AC;? Senators and representatives donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t actually vote yes or no and in fact, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say a word. They do not even shout â&#x20AC;&#x153;ayeâ&#x20AC;? or â&#x20AC;&#x153;noâ&#x20AC;? as one might expect. MARIJUANA REGULATIONS (H 3768, S 2090) House 126-28, Senate 30-5, approved different versions of a bill changing some provisions and adding other provisions to the law, approved by voters on the 2016 ballot, legalizing the possession, growing and sale of marijuana. A House-Senate conference committee has been appointed to hammer out a compromise version. The Senate version keeps the same tax rate that was approved by voters - a 3.75 percent marijuana excise tax and a local option to impose an additional tax of up to 2 percent. Combined with the existing 6.25 percent sales tax, the total tax on marijuana would range from 10 percent to 12 percent, depending on the community. The House version more than doubles the tax rate to 28 percent. The Senate version requires a city or town-wide ballot question in

which voters would decide whether their community wants to opt out of the law or modify it. The House version allows cities and towns to opt out without a town-wide ballot question. Under the House version, some cities can opt out by a majority vote of the city council and approval of the city manager; other cities by a majority vote of the city council and approval by the mayor; and in a town, by a majority vote of the board of selectmen and a majority vote of a town meeting. Jim Borghesani, Director of Communications for â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yes on 4,â&#x20AC;? the group that led the campaign to legalize marijuana, prefers the Senate version. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The House ... repealed and replaced the historic measure enacted by Massachusetts residents last November,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They did it with virtually no public discussion or debate. Their bill is wrong on taxes, wrong on local control, weak on social justice and irresponsible on regulatory efficiency - and is a far cry from what voters overwhelmingly approved last year.â&#x20AC;? Sen. Pat Jehlen (D- Somerville), Senate chair of the Joint Committee on Marijuana that drafted the bill said her first priority is to protect the will of the voters. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want to reduce the black market and we want to give opportunities to small entrepreneurs and farmers and people in communities that have been harmed,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I could not vote for the final bill, which I still find problematic in too many ways,â&#x20AC;? said Rep. Denise Provost (D -Somerville). â&#x20AC;&#x153;This bill, after all, is not the Legislatureâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s legalization initiative. This bill makes major changes to a referendum passed by the voters - and the voters did not approve of warrantless searches or the creation of new law enforcement agencies with other broad and poorly-defined powers.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;This bill reflects a commitment to legalizing adult-use marijuana while upholding our duty to ensure safety and effective management,â&#x20AC;? said House Speaker Bob DeLeo (D-Winthrop). â&#x20AC;&#x153;The House placed a premium on health and safety.â&#x20AC;? Referring to the 28 percent tax approved by the House, Rep. Brad Hill

(R-Ipswich) said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The tax is way too high - with New Hampshire considering legalizing marijuana, all we would be doing is pushing our business to New Hampshire as usual. Additionally, the black market will continue to flourish.â&#x20AC;? Rep. Marc Cusack (D- Braintree), House chair of the Joint Committee on Marijuana, defended the 28 percent tax and said it is in the middle of the pack among the states that have legalized marijuana. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When you are starting off regulating a new industry, you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to be short on revenue and implement this new industry on a shoestring budget,â&#x20AC;? said Cusack. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have many concerns with this bill which not only prevents local residents from having a say on whether or not to allow marijuana dispensaries in their community but also creates a costly new government entity and a bureaucracy whose price tag no one has yet determined,â&#x20AC;? said Rep. Kate Campanale (R- Leicester). DRUG ABUSE TREATMENT FUNDS (H 3768) House 22-131, rejected an amendment that would give money from a $30 million fund for substance abuse prevention and treatment programs only to cities and towns that allow retail marijuana stores and cultivation of marijuana in their community and do not opt out of the law. Amendment supporters said it reasonable to ban any of these funds from going to communities that opt out. They said when the city or town votes to opt out, it should be aware that their city or town will lose out on this money. Amendment opponents said individuals who are battling substance abuse should not be denied help and treatment just because they happen to live in a city or town that has decided to opt out. (A â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yesâ&#x20AC;? vote is for the amendment. A â&#x20AC;&#x153;Noâ&#x20AC;? vote is against it.) Joseph McGonagle No Rep. CONTINUE SESSION BEYOND 9 P.M. UNTIL MIDNIGHT House 126-26, suspended rules to allow the House to meet beyond 9 p.m. and continue until midnight if

necessary. Supporters of rule suspension said it is important to remain in session to finish action on the very important marijuana law. Opponents of rule suspension said it is irresponsible for the House to act on important bills late at night when taxpayers are asleep. The House session continued until 9:45 p.m. (A â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yesâ&#x20AC;? vote is for allowing the session to continue beyond 9 p.m. A â&#x20AC;&#x153;Noâ&#x20AC;? vote is against allowing it.) . Joseph McGonagle Yes Rep. NUMBER OF PLANTS ALLOWED (S 2090) Senate 4-34, rejected an amendment that would reduce from 12 to six the number of flowering marijuana plants a home grower is allowed to grow at the same time. Amendment supporters said that if allowed 12 growing plants, a person could harvest 192 ounces of marijuana per year which could be made into more than 17,000 joints. This would allow a person to smoke 46 joints per day, obviously more than any person can consume. They said allowing 12 would lead to professional marijuana growers coming to Massachusetts to grow marijuana and sell it on the black market at a price lower than the retail stores and to people younger than 21. Amendment opponents said the statistics cited by proponents of the reduction to six are based on commercial cultivation which yields much more marijuana than home growing. They argued that the ballot question approved by the voters allowed 12 plants and should not be changed. (A â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yesâ&#x20AC;? vote is for the amendment. A â&#x20AC;&#x153;Noâ&#x20AC;? vote is against it.) Sen. Sal DiDomenico No REGULATE ADVERTISING AND MARKETING OF MARIJUANA (S 2090) Senate 34-0, approved an amendment regulating the advertising, marketing and branding of marijuana including prohibiting ads on television, radio, billboard and print publications and sponsorship of sporting events unless the advertiser can demonstrate that at least 85 percent of the audience is reasonably expected to be at least age 21. Other provisions prohibit anyone under age 21, any celebrity or cartoon character from being used in ads; advertising that makes assertions that marijuana is safe; the use of unsolicited pop-up advertisements on the Internet; require that an adult-only sign be prominently displayed outside of each marijuana establishment; and require a standard health warning developed by the Department of Public Health be

Sen. DiDomenico urges action on wage theft B

OSTON – State Senator Sal DiDomenico (D-Everett) recently testified before the Joint Committee on Labor and Workforce Development in support of his legislation to prevent the illegal practice of wage theft and promote employer accountability. The bill, S.999, gives the state greater power to go after corrupt employers and provides additional tools for the Attorney General’s Office to hold violators fully accountable. “ The practice of wage theft comes in many different forms, but they all have the common denominator of hurting workers, their families and our communities,” said Senator DiDomenico in his testimony before the committee. He continued, “This legislation takes crucial steps to protect workers from this illicit practice and holds employers accountable for their actions. I respectfully ask for the Committee’s favorable report, and I urge my colleagues in the Legislature to take action and pass this critical bill during this legislative session to end this growing epidemic of wage theft.” Wage theft – the illegal practice of not paying em-

ployees for all of their work through means such as violating minimum wage laws, not paying overtime, or forcing workers to work off the clock – has become a pervasive problem throughout the Massachusetts economy. The number of wage theft violations has grown, especially as more companies move towards using independent contractors rather than fulltime employees, overwhelming the capacity of our existing labor laws and enforcement mechanisms. According to Community Labor United, approximately $700 million is stolen by bad employers from 350,000

workers in Massachusetts each year. The Attorney General’s Office, which is tasked with protecting workers in this state, successfully recovers $5.2 million annually. Immigrants are particularly vulnerable to wage theft due to a reluctance to speak out against employers. As a result, these workers can sometimes go weeks without pay, and when they do get paid, it can be less than originally promised. Wage theft also hurts legitimate businesses by putting law-abiding companies at a competitive disadvantage when they lose contracts to companies that charge less

Drop-off boxes were located at their South Boston headquarters at 147 West 4th St., in addition to at their branches in Everett, Quincy and the Seaport. Hundreds of items – such as bath towels, shampoo, conditioner, lotion, deodorant, toothpaste, toothbrushes, soap, brushes/combs and

sachusetts taxpayers and the Commonwealth when employees have a legitimate right to use these programs. To increase accountability in labor contracting and subcontracting, the bill holds lead contractors accountable for the wage theft violations of their subcontractors if there is a significant connection to their business activities or operations, and it enhances the enforcement power of the Attorney General’s Office by allowing it to bring wage theft cases directly to civil court. The Attorney General would also gain the ability to issue a Stop Work Order in response to a wage theft vi-

Massachusetts Gaming Commission grants Everett $150,000 for bike-share system n Thursday, June 22, Mayor Carlo DeMaria was pleased to announce that the Massachusetts Gaming Commission voted unanimously to grant the city $150,000 to establish a bike-share system in Everett. Bike-sharing is a program for point-to-point trips providing users with bicycles at any self-serve bike station, and the system allows users to return bikes to any other station located within the system’s service area. Mayor DeMaria stated, “This will complement our plans to extend the bike path so that our residents and others can enjoy a safe, continuous and quick ride into Boston via bicycle, and our work with Wynn to build a footbridge from Everett to Assembly Row to create connectivity and good transit access between the cities.” One of the top priorities for the DeMaria administration has been the health and wellness of Everett residents and providing more flexible and affordable commuter options. By bringing in bike infrastructure and app-based technology, Everett residents will not only have a healthier and faster commute, but they can also take advantage of the beautiful Northern Strand Commu-

O

nity Trail for recreation. Even those who do not and cannot afford a bicycle can take advantage of the trail.

Mayor DeMaria envisions a network of interconnection between Everett, Boston and other surrounding

communities so residents and visitors can travel easily between them, and a city

where active transportation like biking is easy and attractive.

Motor Vehicles with the name and contact information of a person to be contacted in an emergency. Drivers under 21 would be required to provide the same information about their next of kin. The information would be stored and first responders could access it by scanning a barcode on the back of the victim’s license. Supporters cite the case of 20-year-old Joshua Cloutier who was in a car accident in 2003 but since he was over 18, medical officials were not required to contact his parents. He spent three hours alone in the emergency room before his parents were told by the parents of another passenger in the car that Joshua had been in an accident. Sharon Cloutier, Joshua’s mother, is leading the movement to get this bill signed into law. She has filed it for several years but it has never been approved. ALLOW BUSINESSES TO OPT INTO “DO NOT CALL” LIST (H 137) - The House gave initial approval to a bill restricting telemarketing companies doing business in the state by allowing businesses to sign up for a “do not call” list and fining companies up to $5,000 if they call a business on the list. Current law only allows individual consumers to sign up for the list. Under the bill, all current laws that now apply to individuals would also apply to businesses including allowing an individual on the list to sue a company for up to $5,000 if the company violates the law and calls the individual more than once a year; preventing companies from blocking their number from appearing on any business’ Caller ID; prohibiting companies from using recorded message devices to make

these calls; and restricting these calls to between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. Supporters said this long overdue bill will finally allow businesses to put a stop to these annoying invasions. They argued the system has worked well for consumers and will be a success for businesses. TWO-DAY SALES TAX HOLIDAY IN AUGUST (H 1548) - The Revenue Committee held a hearing on a bill allowing consumers to buy most products that cost under $2,500 on Saturday, August 12 and Sunday, August 13 without paying the state’s 6.25 percent sales tax. Supporters of the bill said that the holiday would boost retail sales and help brick and mortar stores compete with online sales, many of which are not subject to the sales tax. They noted that consumers over the past several years have saved millions of dollars during similar taxfree holidays. They argued that the state’s sales tax revenue loss would be offset by increased revenue from the meals and gas tax revenue generated by shoppers on those two days. Some opponents of the bill said that the holiday actually generates little additional revenue for stores because consumers would buy the products even without the tax-free days. They said that the Legislature should be looking at broader, deeper tax relief for individuals and businesses and not a tiny tax-free holiday. Others said that a sales tax holiday is irresponsible when the state is already facing a $375 million to $575 million shortfall. TAX SUGARY DRINKS (H 3329) The Revenue Committee heard testimony on a proposal that would tax sugary soft drinks which are currently exempt from the state’s 6.25 per-

cent sales tax. Supporters said the tax would raise an estimated $368 million that the state would put to good use. They noted the tax would discourage people from buying these drinks and help fight the obesity epidemic and stem the rising tide of obesity-related health issues including diabetes, high blood pressure and heart disease. Opponents said families are struggling financially and it is not the time for another tax increase promoted by the “food police.” Some noted that many other things contribute to obesity including a sedentary lifestyle, lack of exercise and fast food consumption. QUOTABLE QUOTES The House took some time during its session last week to remember and honor their colleague Rep. Gail Cariddi (D-North Adams) who passed away at the age of 63 on June 17. “One of the warmest and most gracious people that I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with.” House Speaker Bob DeLeo (D-Winthrop). “A friend to many but asked nothing in return for the friendship that she gave so freely.” Rep. Patricia Haddad (D-Somerset). “I can’t help but recall something Sen. [Ted] Kennedy told me several years ago. He pulled me aside and said, ‘Smitty, I’ve been in public life for a long time. I have a lot of associates but I have very few friends. Gail ... was a dear, dear friend.’” Rep. Smitty Pignatelli (D-Lenox). “She thought so highly of being part of this body and of being a part of the work that she did here.” Rep. Patricia Farley-Bouvier (D-Pittsfield). “I see us bouncing around in a jitney van in Bangkok wearing our crazy funny hats we bought in the open market.” Rep. Sarah Peake (D-Provincetown). “She was hardworking. She was smart. She was quiet. She was gentle. But she was also awesome. She was fun. She was fun to hang out with.” Rep. Paul Mark (D-Peru). 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 June 19-23, the House met for a total of 14 hours and 33 minutes and the Senate met for a total of 12 hours and 29 minutes. Mon. June 19 House 11:04 a.m. to 2:59 p.m. Senate 11:11 a.m. to 12:37 p.m. Tues. June 20 No House session No Senate session Wed. June 21 House 11:48 a.m. to 9:45 p.m. No Senate session Thurs.

Mayor introduces new outdoor seating pilot program n Monday, June 26, Mayor Carlo DeMaria announced that the City of Everett will be introducing a new outdoor seating pilot program for restaurants and cafés, beginning on July 1. The pilot program will be from July until Labor Day. Restaurants and cafés may provide outdoor seating for their customers on city sidewalks if they meet all applicable ordinances, local codes and safety requirements. Seating areas will be limited to the sidewalk area(s) directly adjacent or in front of the property. Mayor DeMaria stated, “Outdoor seating will create more opportunities for our existing businesses and help to grow new ones. Outdoor seating has proven to increase business and enliven the streetscape. Many

O

restaurants in Everett have expressed an interest in outdoor seating, and my hope is this will help to transform Everett into a world-class city. Moving forward my administration will continue to solicit input and begin to look at and make small improvements immediately.” One of the best features of summer for restaurants and cafés is the opportunity for guests to dine alfresco. The outdoor seating program will increase the footprint of a restaurant and outdoor dining visibility and exposure. It is a proven way to add more revenue and gross profit. With an outdoor dining space, restaurants and cafés can create a beautiful and comfortable atmosphere that will attract new customers.

Night Shift Brewery now hosts outdoor seating for those warm summer months.

Everett has seen an increase in outdoor seating for several years. Night Shift Brewery, Bone Up Brewery, and Short Path Distillery have all increased their curb appeal

by adding outdoor seating on their properties. By looking at their options, these businesses have transformed underused spaces into attractive outdoor spaces for their guests, which

has helped boost sales and increased their businesses’ outdoor visibility. Tony Sousa, Director of Everett’s Department of Planning and Development (DPD), stated, “Some of the goals of our outdoor seating policy is to enhance our community’s streetscape by creating a vibrant curb appeal, while implementing quality design standards and maintaining pedestrian access along business sidewalks.” DPD has created an application and guideline packet that detail the requirements for an establishment to have outdoor dining areas on city sidewalks. Copies of the application and guidelines are available on the City of Everett’s website. Hard copies will also be available at DPD.

NEW STUDY | FROM PAGE 1 es. “There are really wonderful waterfront conditions that you just can’t get to,” said Kane, adding that existing businesses and buildings block views and safe access to the water. “Access is largely denied for people who live in Everett.” And while there are some

THE EVERETT ADVOCATE - Friday, June 30, 2017 green spots and paths to the water, there are gaps along the shoreline that make access difficult if not impossible. But the riverfront is changing. Kane called the River’s Edge complex in Medford an “exemplary development” and said that a linear waterfront path planned as part of the Wynn Casino Development will help

bridge those gaps. Still, much of the land along the Malden River is privately owned, and agreements to provide access and open space are a challenge. The one big exception is the Malden Public Works yard, which is owned by the Malden Redevelopment Authority, but finding a new home for the DPW is another

challenge. The crowd at Monday night’s meeting broke into small groups to discuss specific recommendations for the greenway. Some residents wanted more testing done on the water and sediment to ensure public safety and health. Others felt developers need to be held accountable to Chapter

91, the state law that guarantees public access to shorelines and waterways. But many offered ideas and suggestions that would make Malden River a destination. Docks, pedestrian bridges, fountains, signs with historical information, sculpture gardens, festival spaces and efforts to boost wildlife and native plants were part of the discussion. A suggestion to have “waterfires,” or small bonfires on the surface of the water, was a hit. Amber Christoffersen, the Greenways Director for MyRWA, said there will be two more meetings later in the summer to gather public input for the greenway plan. She urged residents to be active and involved, adding that public support will be a key factor in reclaiming the riverfront for the Everett community.

JULY 1 | FROM PAGE 1 DeMaria and other city leaders will be running the grills and handing out fresh fruits and veggies. There will also be vendor booths with several giveaways and activities from the following: the YMCA in Everett, Girl and Boy Scouts, Everett Community Growers, the Joint Committee for Children’s Healthcare, the Substance Abuse Coalition, RCN, Hot 96.9, Mayor DeMaria, the City Council and State Senator Sal DiDomenico. All giveaways are first come, first served. In case of inclement weather, the event will be moved to Sunday, July 2. If the event is postponed to the 2nd, residents will be notified by Friday evening, June 30, via Facebook posts and robocalls.

SEN. DIDOMENICO | FROM PAGE 3 olation. To protect employees affected by a Stop Work Order, the bill requires that employees be paid for the period that the Stop Work Order is in effect or the first 10 days the employee was scheduled to work had the Stop Work Order not been issued. The Massachusetts Senate passed Senator DiDomenico’s wage theft bill last session with nearly unanimous and bipartisan support. Coming off of last year’s victory in the Senate, the bill has strong momentum, and supporters are hopeful that the legislation will clear both chambers of the Legislature and receive the Governor’s signature. An Act to prevent wage theft and promote employer accountability is currently pending before the Joint Committee on Labor and Workforce Development, where is awaits a favorable report.

Auto Safety Devices That Can Help Seniors with Older Cars Dear Savvy Senior, Do you know of any auto safety products that can help seniors with older cars? My 80-year-old father, who drives his beloved 2004 Toyota Avalon, is still a good pretty driver but he has limited range-of-motion, which makes looking over his shoulder to back-up or merge into traffic very difficult. Inquiring Son Dear Inquiring, To help keep your dad safe and extend his driving years, there are a number of auto aids and new safety technology products that can be added to his car to help with various needs. Here are several to consider. Backup Aids To help your dad increase his visibility when backing up, a simple product that can be added to his car is an AllView Mirror ($60, AllviewMirror.com). This is an oversized rear view mirror that attaches to his existing mirror to widen his rear visibility and eliminate blind spots so he can see traffic without significant neck or body rotation. It also helps during parking. Another option is a backup camera. These come with a weatherproof, night vision camera, which attaches to the license plate on the rear of the car. When the car is in reverse, it sends live images wirelessly to a small monitor that mounts to the dash or windshield. The Yada Digital Wireless Backup Camera ($140, Amazon) with 4.3â&#x20AC;? Dash Monitor is a good option. Or, if your dad doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want a monitor in his car, the Auto Vox Wireless Backup Camera ($140, Amazon. com) is one that displays the images in a rearview mirror. Blind Spot Helpers To help your dad see better when switching lanes or merging into traffic, purchase your dad some â&#x20AC;&#x153;blind spot mirrors.â&#x20AC;? These are small convex mirrors that would stick to the corner of his side view mirrors to improve side and rear vision. They can be purchased in any store that sells auto supplies for a few dollars. Or, for a high-tech more comprehensive solution, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the Goshen Blind Spot Detection System

www.reverealuminumwindow.com

($239, Goshers.com). This system uses small sensors installed on each side of the rear bumper that monitor the sides of the vehicle, and will alert your dad with a light indicator, installed inside the car, if any object detected within 10 feet. Safety Products For extra safety, you may also want to consider a collision warning/lane departure device for your dadâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vehicle like the Mobileye 630. This is a smart camera that attaches to the windshield and will alert your dad if he speeds, drifts out of his lane, gets too close to the car in front of him, or gets too close to a pedestrian or cyclist. Sold only through retailers (see Mobileye.com/en-us/find-a-retailer), this device can be purchased and installed by a Mobileye-certified technician for around $1,100. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re interested in something a little less expensive, there are also dashboard cameras that can double as collision warning systems. Garminâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Dash Cam 35 ($129, Amazon.com), for example, monitors up to 130 feet in front of the vehicle, so if your dad is going 30 mph or faster, it will issue audio and visual alerts of impending collisions. Another product that can help keep your dad safe in emergency situations is the Hum (Hum.com). This nifty device will automatically call emergency services if your dad has been in an accident. It also sends alerts to driversâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; phones if thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a mechanical problem and lets driverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s press a button if they need roadside assistance. Hum works in cars built in 1996 or later, and costs $10 per month with two-year required subscription, and one-time set-up and activation fees totaling $50.

Send your senior questions to: Savvy Senior, P.O. Box 5443, Norman, OK 73070, or visit SavvySenior.org. Jim Miller is a contributor to the NBC Today show and author of â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Savvy Seniorâ&#x20AC;? book.

JOSEPH D. CATALDO

â&#x20AC;&#x153;YOUR FINANCIAL FOCUSâ&#x20AC;?

A TRIBUTE TO JIM CAT n June 26th, we lost one more of the greatest generation. Jim Cataldo, my dad, died peacefully at his home on 27 Dean Street, Everett. The son of Italian immigrants, he grew up in Medford, married my mom and raised his family in Everett. A hardworking electrician for sure. He also worked endlessly on the real estate that he purchased for investment. He always supported the Everett community during the past 60 years. People in his generation taught us itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not so much what you earn, but what you keep. They all lived at or below their means. My mom still uses brown super market paper bags for the kitchen trash barrel. Most everyone in my generation buy glad bags. Wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think of saving an exta few dollars a month. They grew up with no money at all. His father once served him and his brothers horse meat because he had no money for steak. That was an unaffordable luxury. Not from a privileged family at all. Just a hard worker. He knew if he failed, he had no affluent parents to bail him out. He knew he was on his own. Isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t that when the best comes out of you? When youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re back is against the wall and you have to sink or swim. He always said to me â&#x20AC;&#x153;you have to go to collegeâ&#x20AC;?. He and his siblings didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have that opportunity. He said â&#x20AC;&#x153;go to business schoolâ&#x20AC;?. So in September of 1976 I started classes at Bentley College. Graduated four years later with a Bachelor of Science degree in accounting. After having passed the CPA exam, I got a job with an accounting firm in Wakefield. I quit after six months. I told my dad that I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think the accounting profession was for me. So I went to work for him renovating a

Sculpt a clay Mole at The Shute Library nn McCrea from â&#x20AC;&#x153;ClayWorksâ&#x20AC;? will visit the Shute Memorial Library on July 12. The program begins at 2 p.m. and will end by 3:15 p.m. First she will tell a story from the book â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mole Musicâ&#x20AC;? by David McPhail. When mole learns to make beautiful sounds on the violin in his underground home, he is unaware of the positive changes his music brings to those above ground. Then, children will learn how to sculpt their own clay Mole, which they can take home. The program is recommended for ages five to 12, and space and materials are limited, so advance registration is recommended. For more information or to register, call 617394-5008. This free program is supported in part by a grant from the Everett Cultural Council, a local agency that is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency, and the friends of the library. The Shute Library is located at 781 Broadway in Everett, Mass.

FINANCIAL FOCUS | FROM PAGE 20 building in Revere. He was on my back to give it another try. I knew he was so disappointed. So I got my second job at Vitale, Caturano & Co in the North End of Boston. I realized after six months there it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the profession I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like but rather the environment at the first firm that I worked with. There was no connection there for me. My dad taught me you have to give something at least a second try. It might not be the career path youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve chosen that you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like. It might just be the environment that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re working in. Because of the great experience I had with that second job, I then went on to obtain my Masters Degree in Taxation in May of 1986. In September of 1986 I enrolled in Suffolk University Law Schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s night division. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been in practice now for 33 years in the old Everett Police Station. Just a two minute drive from where I grew up. We all need someone to point us in the right direction and to be a mentor for us as we navigate lifeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s uncertainties. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also nice to be a mentor for the generations that follow us as well. I owe a lot to Jim Cat because I know for sure I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be where I am today without his advice, street smarts and great personality. America is a place where you can turn nothing into something. You can start of broke and end up wealthy. You just have to work your butt off to achieve any type of meaningful legacy. Jim Cat did all of that.
