Salem police chief has trouble staying retired


The show is hosted by the colorful Jeff Kuhner. This is the same station that brings you Howie Carr and Rush Limbaugh.

But all those celebrities mean nothing to Brittany. She grew up under the same roof as one of Salem’s biggest celebrities, police Sgt. Bill Jennings — her dad.

Hearing help

The Salem Commission on Disabilities deserves a shout-out for purchasing two FM listening systems to use at public meetings to assist people with hearing loss.

One system has been installed in the City Council chamber at City Hall, and the second, a system of portable devices, is at the City Hall annex at 120 Washington St.

To use the system at City Hall, contact City Clerk Cheryl LaPointe at 978-619-5610 or To arrange for use of the portable system at 120 Washington St., contact the city’s ADA coordinator, Lisa Cammarata, at 978-619-5630 or

Credit for this project goes to Commission on Disability co-chairs Andrew LaPointe and Debra Lobsitz, member David Martel, and Salem Cable Access TV staff members David Moisan and Sal Russo.

Veterans tribute

The Second Corps Cadets Veterans Association laid a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington National Cemetery in Washington, D.C.

The group was in Baltimore a few weeks ago for the annual convention of the Centennial Legion of Historic Military Commands, a group with nearly 100 member organizations.

For the wreath-laying ceremony, the Second Corps members were regaled in red uniforms.
