Council passes FY’18 city budget By Sara Brown

T

he Revere City Council passed the mayor’s FY2018 city budget at the June 26 City Council meeting. Councillors voted in favor of passing a budget of $184,437,347, which includes the school department. The overall non-school spending increases were held under 3 percent. The council made no recommendation or cuts to the budget, saying it was one of the leanest budgets they have seen recent years. “This is one of the leanest I’ve seen in recent years,” Ward Five Councillor John Powers, who is chairman of the Ways and Means Subcommittee, said. “There were no recommendations

made, which tends to show how lean the budget is.” The council subcommittee held four separate meetings to discuss departmental budgets. Ward Three Councillor Arthur Guinasso said that because of these meetings, they should just vote for the budget and forgo any debate since they had ample time to do so in subcommittee. “Everyone had their opportunity to discuss it and make recommendations if they wanted to,” he said. The budget proposed does not tap into rainy day funds. Additionally, the city added $1 million in free cash to its reserves. The budget not only fully funds a position at the new 311 call system center,

which will officially launch this fall, but also a human resources department as the city looks to hire a fulltime HR director. “This year’s budget continues the progress made last year toward putting Revere on sound fiscal footing and making strategic investments in the future of our city,” said Mayor Brian Arrigo in a statement following the release of the budget. “The budget serves as a blueprint for the work we will do over the next year to professionalize our government, strengthen city services, and deliver value for the taxpayers of Revere.” The only councillor who did not vote in favor of the budget was Councillor-at-Large George Rotondo.

City Council debate resumes over mayor’s police chief pick

asked. Rotondo also wanted the mayor to discuss the reorganization of the department. Chief Joseph Cafarelli’s contract ends at the end of June, and Arrigo has decided not to renew it – opting for his own pick. Arrigo recently announced Captain James Guido as the interim Police Chief of Revere beginning on July 1. Weeks ago, four candidates in the department

were put through an Assessment Center conducted by Arlington Police Chief Fred Ryan to see how they would per form in different situations. According to Ryan, the candidates failed to meet “Above Average” grade, prompting him to report that the mayor should seek qualified candidates outside the department. Arrigo said many departments, including the Police Department, have internal investigations going on, but he cannot talk about them at the City Council meeting. “I am in charge of having a department run effectively and efficiently,” said Arrigo. “I am making sure that happens.” H o w e v e r, o t h e r s d i s agreed. Former Mayor Dan Rizzo, who appointed Cafarelli, said Arrigo is playing politics with the Police Department. Arrigo said he wanted a police chief that had more community policing experience, but Rizzo thinks Cafarelli has that skill. He said Cafarelli was recently invited to Dallas to speak on community policing. “That means to me he must know something about community policing,” said Rizzo. “He did his job

Suffolk Downs prepares for live racing this summer

E

AST BOSTON, Mass. – Live thoroughbred racing will return to Suffolk Downs this summer with three two-day racing festivals. This year the first weekend of live racing will be held on July 8-9, and racing will continue on August 5-6 and September 2-3. Suffolk Downs will offer purses of approximately $500,000 per day for the six days of racing and both open stakes and Mass.-bred stakes. The featured race on Saturday, July 8, is the $75,000 Jill Jellison Memorial Stakes for fillies and mares at five furlongs on the turf. Similar to the last two years, the racing festivals will again in-

clude food trucks, craft beer, live music and family fun activities. In addition to live racing, the track is also planning several promotional events, including a National Horseplayers Championship–qualifying tournament on Sunday, August 6, which will offer two guaranteed seats to the National Horseplayers Championship in Las Vegas in February. In September, fans will have the opportunity to purchase a commemorative program and Suffolk Downs cap with the proceeds to benefit the Permanently Disabled Jockeys Fund. The festival format has proven popular with local

racing fans. Suffolk Downs averaged crowds of 7,000 per day for the 2016 festivals, and Suffolk Downs was ranked second among tracks in the 2016 rankings of the Horseplayers Association of North America. “We look forward to welcoming back fans of live racing and the people who have supported our racing programs for the last several years,” said Suffolk Downs COO Chip Tuttle. “With purse levels near $500,000 per day and participation bonuses for horsemen to cover their shipping costs, we anticipate strong programs of competitive races for the upcoming festivals.”

In 2015 the track held three single live racing and food truck festival days, and last year the boutique meet expanded to six days to help support the New England Horsemen’s Benevolent and Protective Association (HBPA) and the Massachusetts Thoroughbred Breeders, as both organizations are seeking venues at which to compete for local purse money being generated by expanded gaming in the state. Entries for both days of racing in July will be drawn on Tuesday, July 4. The barn area will open for horsemen to arrive on Thursday, July 6, and the track will be open for training on Saturday, July 8.

The Suffolk Downs property was sold earlier this year to the McClellan Highway Development Company. Sterling Suffolk Racecourse, the operating company for Suffolk Downs, has leased back the premises required for racing and simulcasting for 2017 and 2018. For more information, visit www. suffolkdowns.com. Suffolk Downs Built by 3,000 workers in just 62 days when Massachusetts authorized pari-mutuel wagering in 1935, the historic track has been a showcase for some of the most famous names in thoroughbred racing history, including Seabiscuit, Whirlaway, John Henry, Cigar and Skip Away.

New hotel proposed for Revere Beach 175 rooms, eight stories with restaurant By Sara Brown

R

evere might finally get a new hotel at the beach area – and without a gambling license. During the June 26 City Council meeting, JBX Developers of East Boston presented their plans for a hotel on 49-54 Revere Beach Blvd. during a public hearing. The proposal calls for a 175-room hotel with an 80-seat restaurant and 126 parking spaces to be located underneath the building inside. The hotel will be located at the site of the Shipwreck Lounge. According to Michael Lee of JBX Developers, the proposal

O

calls for a complete tear down of the abandoned lounge to construct the eight-story hotel. There will be approximately 25 rooms on each floor, a restaurant on the mezzanine level and a rooftop terrace. The design of the hotel will be a U-shape, and only about 10 rooms in the hotel would be without a view of the beach. They are also hoping to create some type of art space as a way to become more involved with the community. The council appeared delighted over the proposal. Ward One Councillor Joanne McKenna said the hotel will help the redevelopment of that area of Revere Beach and

that currently the Shipwreck Lounge is in bad shape. “We finally get a hotel that we have all been asking for and a beautiful one at that,” she said. Councillor-at-Large Jessica Giannino said the proposal is perfect for the area. “This is a perfect example of the right project, right size, right place,” she said. During the public hearing, no one spoke against the project; Mayor Brian Arrigo said he was overwhelmingly in favor of it, calling it the single biggest development on the beach in 20 years. “It’s a nobrainer for me,” he said. The application will be sent to the Zoning Subcommittee.

Revere Police awarded grant to help reduce underage drinking in Massachusetts

M

ayor Brian Arrigo and Chief of Police Joseph Cafarelli recently announced that the Revere Police Department was awarded a grant by the Office of Grants and Research of the Executive Office of Public Safety and Security – Highway Safety Division (EOPSS-HSD) to help reduce underage drinking in Massachusetts.A total of $256,000 was awarded to 75 police departments, with funding from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Revere received $4,996.16. This grant opportunity allows municipal, college and university law enforcement agencies to apply for funding to conduct compliance checks on liquor retailers, to perform surveillance and party patrols and to place plainclothes officers in retail stores. “Research and experience confirms strong enforcement helps to decrease underage drinking by limiting access to alcohol and reducing opportunities for youth to drink,” said Governor Charlie Baker. “Consis-

tent, vigorous enforcement helps to curb impaired driving.” “This type of enforcement can significantly reduce underage drinking in the community,” said Lt. Governor Karyn Polito. “Enforcement also helps to validate the activities of prevention specialists and can help treatment specialists identify youth in need of help.” “Young drivers lack driving experience and have difficulty scanning their environments to detect imminent hazards. Coupling alcohol with these limitations worsens these driving weaknesses,” said EOPSS Secretary Daniel Bennett. “Keeping young drivers safe is our mission.” The Revere Police Department, in partnership with EOPSS-HSD, recognizes that traffic crashes are preventable and is committed to using this grant to reduce the number of motor vehicle–related fatalities and injuries involving young drivers in Revere – because any death or injury on our roadways is one too many.

DA Conley presents $65k in awards to Suffolk County Youth Groups

B

OSTON – On June 26, District Attorney Dan Conley distributed $65,150 to nonprofits dedicated to keeping Suffolk County youths away from drugs, violence and negative choices. During a ceremony held at his downtown office, 11 non-profits received grant funds from Conley’s Asset Forfeiture Community Reinvestment Grant program. The program draws from cash and assets seized during drug trafficking investigations to support organizations that work with young people across Suffolk County. This year’s awards included individual grants ranging from $3,000 to $7,500. One of the awardees was Zumix, which was founded in 1991 in response to an increase in youth violence in East Bos-

ton. Zumix offers afterschool and summer arts enrichment programs to youths from East Boston, as well as from other Boston neighborhoods, Revere and Chelsea. The nonprofit provides young people with a safe space to develop skills to succeed in the fields of music production, audio engineering, broadcasting, songwriting and performing. “These awards represent our ongoing commitment to working with our partners across disciplines to improve the quality of life for young people. Working together, we can accomplish far more than any one agency can achieve alone,” Conley said. The grants are provided at no cost to taxpayers: Every cent comes from assets seized dur-

ing the investigation and prosecution of drug distribution cases. State auditors have repeatedly praised the process in Suffolk County and gave it high marks for turning “the profits of crime into something positive for the community” while carefully documenting all forfeiture-related income and expenditures. Conley has delivered hundreds of thousands of dollars to nonprofits and youth service providers since taking office. Application forms for grants are available at http://www.suffolkdistrictattorney.com/partnerships-and-prevention/asset-forfeiture-reinvestment-program/, and all who work to keep the youths of Suffolk County safe and healthy are welcome to apply.

t’s time to watch fireworks displays, sing patriotic songs, and ruminate about our country’s rich heritage and history. It’s time to celebrate America’s national birthday. As we do so, we should recognize that millions of our ancestors, by their creative thinking, hard work, devotion to the common good and personal sacrifices have helped make our nation a beacon of democracy and opportunity in a world that has faced a sea of challenges since 1776. We obviously owe a huge debt of gratitude to America’s founders, who risked their property, reputations, and lives to express their opposition to Britain’s policies, to call for independence, to fight a war to achieve this objective, and to craft a new nation that has defended and disseminated the principles of freedom around the globe. Not surprisingly, four of the principal founders were the first four presidents of the United States: George Washington, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, and James Madison all served effectively as the nation’s chief executive, setting precedents and establishing policies that placed the fledging country on a solid foundation and helped ensure its stability and success. Also, not surprisingly, their successors in the office have often praised the founders for their wisdom in devising such a venerable Constitution and workable government and appealed to them to bolster their own reputations and policies. Twentieth and twenty-first century presidents have especially lauded the religious convictions of the founders. Both Republican and Democratic chief executives have argued

that the founders’ religious convictions helped shape the government they crafted. “Nothing is more true,” Herbert Hoover proclaimed, “than George Washington’s statement: ‘National morality cannot exist in the absence of religious principle.’”The Scriptures, insisted Franklin Roosevelt, shaped the philosophy of the Founding Fathers and guided their actions. “Our Founding Fathers,” Harry Truman announced, “believed that God created this Nation.”They correctly acknowledged “that God was our strength in time of peril and the source of all our blessings.” That the United States endured the “agonies of the American Revolution and emerge[d] triumphant,” Truman argued, was miraculous. Its independence was “the working of God’s hand.” Dwight Eisenhower insisted that the Founding Fathers “wrote their religious faith into our founding documents, stamped their trust in God upon our coins and currency, [and] put it squarely at the base of our institutions.” They strove to obey God’s commandments, live in freedom, and create a prosperous country. “The knowledge that God is the source of all power,” Eisenhower maintained, gave birth to and sustained America. Human dignity depended on the Godgiven rights that were “eloquently stated” in the Declaration of Independence. Faith in Almighty God, John F. Kennedy contended, “was a dominant power in the lives of our Founding Fathers.”He urged Americans to “dwell upon the deep religious convictions of those who formed our nation.” Ronald Reagan repeatedly stressed the religious commitments of the Founding Fathers, especially their contention that the United States would flourish only if its people acted morally. The founders, he declared, “believed faith in God was the key to our being a good people and America’s becoming a great nation.” Reagan regularly recounted how the founders, especially Washington, had relied on God in leading the nation. The Declaration of Independence, Reagan claimed, expressed America’s recognition of God’s power and authority. He noted that Benjamin Franklin, John Jay, Thomas Jefferson, and James Madison all accentuated God’s providential guidance and the importance of prayer. The Founding Fathers ensured that Congress began each day with prayer, Reagan proclaimed, because they valued prayer so highly. The American republic, declared George H. W. Bush, was built on the founders’ “faith in Almighty God”and“spiritual principles.”Convinced that all people “are equal

Beacon Hill Roll Call By Bob Katzen THE HOUSE AND SENATE: This week’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.Here’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, “All those in favor of the amendment say ‘aye,’ those opposed say ‘no.’The no’s have it and the amendments are not adopted.” Or if the fate is approval, it sounds like this: “All those in favor of the amendment say ‘aye,’ those opposed say‘no.’The ayes have it and the amendments are adopted.” Senators and representatives don’t actually vote yes or no and in fact, don’t say a word. They do not even shout “aye” or “no” 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 “Yes on 4,” the group that led the campaign to legalize marijuana, prefers the Senate version.“The House ... repealed and replaced the historic measure enacted by Massachusetts residents last November,” he said. “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.” 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. “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,” she said. “I could not vote for the final bill, which I still find problemat-

ic in too many ways,” said Rep. Denise Provost (D -Somerville). “This bill, after all, is not the Legislature’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.” “This bill reflects a commitment to legalizing adult-use marijuana while upholding our duty to ensure safety and effective management,” said House Speaker Bob DeLeo (DWinthrop).“The House placed a premium on health and safety.” Referring to the 28 percent tax approved by the House, Rep. Brad Hill (R-Ipswich) said, “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.” 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. “When you are starting off regulating a new industry, you don’t want to be short on revenue and implement this new industry on a shoestring budget,” said Cusack. “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,” said Rep. Kate Campanale (R- Leicester). Rep. Robert DeLeo Yes Rep. Paul Donato Yes Rep. Stephan Hay Yes Rep. Bradley Jones Yes Rep. Joseph McGonagle Yes Rep. Theodore Speliotis Yes Rep.

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 “Yes” vote is for the amendment. A “No” vote is against it.) Rep. Robert DeLeo No Rep. Paul Donato No Rep. Stephan Hay No Rep. Bradley Jones No Rep. Joseph McGonagle No Rep. Theodore Speliotis No Rep. Steven Ultrino No Rep. RoseLee Vincent No Rep. Thomas Walsh No 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 “Yes” vote is for allowing the session to continue beyond 9 p.m. A “No” vote is against allowing it.) Rep. Robert DeLeo Yes Rep. Paul Donato Yes Rep. Stephan Hay Yes Rep. Bradley Jones No Rep. Joseph McGonagle Yes Rep. Theodore Speliotis Yes Rep. Steven Ultrino Yes Rep. RoseLee Vincent Yes Rep. Thomas Walsh Yes NUMBER OF PLANTS ALLOWED (S 2090) Senate 4-34, rejected an amendment that would re-

duce 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 “Yes” vote is for the amendment. A “No” vote is against it.) Sen. Joseph Boncore No Sen. Sal DiDomenico No Sen. Jason Lewis No Sen. Joan Lovely No Sen. Thomas McGee 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 included in all ads. Amendment supporters said this will help ensure that marijuana is not marketed to anyone under age 21. They noted the voters voted to legalize marijuana for adults, not to promote it to minors. (A “Yes” vote is for the amendment Sen. Joseph Boncore Yes Sen. Sal DiDomenico Yes Sen. Jason Lewis Yes Sen. Joan Lovely Yes Sen. Thomas McGee Yes

ALSO UP ON BEACON HILL ORGAN DONORS (H 3434) - A bill before the Transportation Committee would automatically enroll anyone who applies for or renews a driver’s license in the state’s organ donor program. The person could opt out of the program by signing a written notice. Current law only enrolls people who voluntarily sign up for the program when applying for or renewing their driver’s license. REQUIRE EMERGENCY CONTACT INFO FROM ALL DRIVERS (H 1749) -The Transportation Committee is also considering a bill that would require licensed drivers over age 21 to provide the Registry of 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

BEACON | from page 14 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 tax-free 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 percent 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 obesityrelated 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 (DWinthrop). “A friend to many but asked nothing in return for the friendship that she gave so freely.” Rep. Patricia Haddad (DSomerset). “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 (DLenox). “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

Page 15

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 1923, 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.

Savvy Senior by Jim Miller

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 4.3” Dash Monitor is a good option. Or, if your dad doesn’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 “blind spot mirrors.” 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, there’s the Goshen Blind Spot Detection System ($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 dad’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 you’re interested in something a little less expensive, there are also dashboard cameras that can double as collision warning systems. Garmin’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 drivers’ phones if there’s a mechanical problem and lets driver’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.

THE REVERE ADVOCATE - Friday, June 30, 2017

~ Letter-to-the-Editor ~

Interim Police Chief looks forward to the challenge To the editor: It is an incredible honor to be named Interim Chief of the Revere Police Department. I have dedicated my life to this Department and the City of Revere. I will do everything I can during my time as Chief to improve public safety for all Revere residents. The Revere Police Department is committed to providing quality policing every day. I look forward to working with all of the residents, business owners, elected officials and members of the department in the months ahead. I know that Mayor Arrigo respects and appreciates the hard work of the men and women of the Revere Police Depar tment, and wants to give them the tools and training they need to succeed. He and I both want to see the Police Department continue its emphasis on building strong relationships in the community. Under my leadership, the Revere Police Department

will work collaboratively with those conducting the outside organizational review. I know that a review will show the great work the Department does on a daily basis and will also show areas where we need to improve. Together, we will work to strengthen what we already do well, and address areas in need of improvement. I look forward to this important work. My goal will be to improve our customer service to the citizens of Revere while this review takes place. The Police are asked to wear many hats in this day and age of policing and we strive every day to do our very best. I look forward to the challenge ahead and look forward to making new partnerships as I forge ahead. The men and women of this Department will continue to make Revere the best place to live and work. Sincerely, James R. Guido Chief of Police

in the sight of their Creator,” the founders devised a system of government that protected “the Godgiven rights of every individual.” The founders cared deeply about religion, Bill Clinton maintained, because they thought it promoted the character and conduct essential to the republic’s success.

tion, Clinton argued, “recognized the awesome power” religious liberty possessed to unite citizens to promote the common good. “The faith of our Founding Fathers,”George W. Bush proclaimed, established the precedent that prayers and national days of prayer are an honored part of our American way of life.”“Our Founding Fathers,” he added, “knew the importance of freedom of religion to a stable and lasting Union.”They “relied on their faith to guide them as they built our democracy.” Barack Obama praised the founders for giving Americans the ability“to worship and practice religion as they choose.” Presidents have also frequently cited the founders to reinforce policies they advocated. Consider three examples. In urging Congress to pass the Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993, Clinton claimed that it better protected “Americans of all faiths in the exercise of their religion” and was “far more consistent” with the founders’ intention than the Supreme Court’s

decision in Employment Division v. Smith (1990). This Act, Clinton maintained, honored “the principle that our laws and institutions should not impede or hinder but rather should protect and preserve fundamental religious liberties.” In promoting faith-based initiatives, George W. Bush argued in 2001 that the nation’s founders had approved using federal money to fund the activities of religious groups that promoted morality and improved social conditions but not those endeavors that spread their specific beliefs. In calling on the Senate to approve the Law of the Sea Convention in 2016, Obama reminded them that “the power to make treaties is written into our Constitution. Our Founding Fathers ratified lots of treaties.” As we celebrate our nation’s 241st birthday, let’s thank God for giving us this incredible collection of founders who labored so courageously, tirelessly, and effectively to establish the world’s largestto-that-date republic and ensure its success.

Dr. Gary Scott Smith is the retired chair of the history department at Grove City College and is a fellow for faith and politics with The Center for Vision & Values. He is the author of “Suffer the Children” (Cascade Books, 2017), “Religion in the Oval Office” (Oxford University Press, 2015), “Faith and the Presidency From George Washington to George W.
