Salem man helps catch assault suspect


A good guy, Santana used some of his award to fund items for student use at the school.

He currently works at Big Sal’s Superior Barbershop in Salem.

Gift for heroes

Jack Walsh, a local glass artist, donated painted bottles with the Massachusetts Fallen Heroes Memorial logo etched into the glass for the organization’s recent auction at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center.

The beautiful bottles fetched $1,000 for the charity, which is raising funds to build a memorial to honor the Massachusetts men and women who have died since 9/11 serving in Iraq, Afghanistan or in other operations.

This charity, by the way, is dear to the heart of Christina Ayube of Salem, the mother of Army Sgt. James Ayube II, a medic who was killed by a suicide bomber in Afghanistan in 2010.

Walsh, a former automotive mechanic, owns DancingSand Custom Bottle Etching here in Salem.
