Heard Around Town: The story behind the St. Joseph statue discovery


In one of those chilling and random links, those are roughly the same years that Sean Collier, the MIT police officer allegedly shot and killed by Tsarnaev and his brother, was a student at Salem State.

Collier, who was honored this week by the college, graduated in 2009.

Open house

If you don’t know about Sail Salem, you should. The nonprofit sailing program has put more than 1,000 children, many from low-income families, out on the water in the past six years.

In addition to youth programs, it offers adult classes and a family sail. It also provides financial aid.

To find out more, go to their open house Sunday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Winter Island function hall, or visit their website at

‘Idol’ chatter

We know that Angie Miller’s reign on “American Idol” is over, but can we add one little footnote?

Did you watch her hometown visit to Beverly?

Did you see her riding in a limo from Boston to the North Shore and hear her comment about how great it was to be back home as they passed an “Entering Beverly” sign? And, right after that, did you see Angie jump out of the car and say, “Here’s my favorite coffee shop.”

Do you know what coffee shop that was?

That was Jaho, right here on Pickering Wharf.

Yup, Angie’s favorite Beverly coffee shop is in Salem. Now, it’s not her fault. It was those Fox TV folks who confused the two cities.

Jaho, by the way, is also her dad’s favorite. Guy Miller is pastor of Remix Church, which holds services at the Bentley School every Sunday. Before the service, they hold a reception with hot coffee straight from Jaho.

Weekend tip

Great event Sunday from 1-3 at The House of the Seven Gables — Viva!, The Colors and Sounds of the Caribbean.
