Salem residents who know of a pothole on a public roadway should help the city by reporting it directly to Department of Public Services by emailing potholes@salem.com or calling 978-744-3302. Include the exact address or a location description, along with a contact name and telephone number if possible. Feel free to send photos, as well. Reporting a pothole does not guarantee it will be immediately repaired that day; it will be added to the list for DPS crews to fix. DPS prioritizes potholes based on their severity and attempts to work in geographic clusters to maximize efficiency of resources.

Emotions Anonymous, a 12-step organization similar to Alcoholics Anonymous, will meet weekly for the purpose of working toward recovery from emotional difficulties. Members are from many walks of life and are of diverse ages, economic statuses, and social and educational backgrounds. The only requirement for membership is a desire to become well emotionally. Meetings are held at Beverly Hospital on Tuesdays from 7 to 9 p.m. For more information, call Murray at 978-535-7676.
