Heard Around Town: The year of the saxophone in Salem


And what an itinerary.

“High on our agenda is choosing a new pope,” Paula wrote. “Once that is out of the way, we plan to visit St. Peter’s Basilica and the Galleria Borghese in Rome.”

Why don’t they make it a really memorable trip and help the Italians form a new government?


Rep. John Keenan is holding his annual St. Paddy’s Day breakfast on Friday, March 15, at Finz restaurant.

He’s already got commitments from the man who is governor, Deval Patrick, and the man who wants to be governor, state Treasurer Steven Grossman. He thinks Sen. Elizabeth Warren may be coming, along with the two guys battling it out for the state’s open Senate seat, Ed Markey and Stephen Lynch.

With a guest list like that, Keenan may have to break with tradition and tell a funny joke. Please, if you can help, send him a good one-liner.

Kind heart

Jenna Ferrier doesn’t know exactly when she lost her wallet, but figures it was early Sunday morning when she stopped at her mother’s house on Barr Street.

It wasn’t until later Sunday that the 24-year-old realized she was missing her wallet along with $230 in cash, four credit cards, two debit cards, her license and passport.

She was panicked. She looked everywhere, but came up blank.

The next day, her mom called to say she discovered the wallet in the strangest place — the mailbox. And everything was inside, including the cash.

Jenna, a college student who is busy planning an August wedding, was overjoyed. She figures someone must have seen her old address on the license and dropped the wallet off at her mother’s house. But the good Samaritan didn’t speak to anyone or leave a name.
