be beautiful! It’s nice to see people taking pride in how their buildings look, like Salem Co-operative bank with their new roof! Our investments in this town will pay-off.

“Thumbs down to having $5 OFF 419 South Broadway, Salem, NH “Thumbs down to main-streaming.”

“Thumbs down to the person who gave the DPW a thumbs down regarding bridge work. First off, you didn’t mention which bridge I assume you meant the Lawrence St Bridge. The DPW is not doing ANY work on that bridge. A contractor is performing it. Please get your facts straight before you bad mouth the DPW.”

“Thumbs down to the woman who yelled at

my mother in the Salem Kmart. She is such a kind and caring woman and didn’t deserve your venom. Your temper tantrum was unnecessary. Grow up and get over yourself. My mother understands your rage although directed at her, was probably a culmination of other things in your life and she forgives you. I on the other hand, am very upset you treated her like that. Please try and count to 10 before you explode in public and remember an extra moment or two of patience is appreciated by everyone around you.”

“Thumbs down to Mr. Brook’s weekly tirades against President Obama. You get tired of reading the same letter week after week; he never has anything new to add. And when I look up the “facts” he writes I find almost every

“Thumbs up for hiring a replacement for Selectman Barnes. Beth said she wanted to get fresh blood in there and I agree with her. Lets put all of the incumbents out next time.

the Lawrence Road Bridge. It is a huge inconvenience to my neighbors and I. I hardly ever see them doing any work.”

“Thumbs down Why is it that I see vehicles with MA plates dumping their trash at the Salem facility? I thought

it was only for Salem residents and it required a town sticker. The cars/trucks I’ve seen there have not sticker. When you confront a town employee about it, they only shrug their shoulders. Unbelievable !!!!”

“Thumbs up to the kid’s being back at school- Amen!

“Thumbs up to the Depot restoration. The depot intersection will be quite the showcase when the station is done as well as the new restaurant and the development of the adjacent properties. Salem needs a centerpiece.

“Thumbs down to Pat Hargreaves and his

conspiracy theory. It’s time to learn about politics. “Thumbs up to all the new businesses in town.

one of them false. It’s great to have a conservative opinion but stick to reality in the future, please!”

“Thumbs up to the woman who pretty much

saved my life August 30 on Gordon road during to a diabetic episode. God bless you!

“Thumbs up to the road & improvements in Salem. I can’t wait for Rt 28 to be finished along with the Demoulas- Salem is going to

“Thumbs down to just plain ignorance! The “tab” at McDonalds is for prisoner meals only. See all the arrests made by the Police, well when people are held in jail they must be fed. The “Target” end of that detail, without an Officer their people continually drive around the signs into the construction area that slows, interferes with the job and creates a hazard. Remember the floods, all those

cars stuck in water because they drove around the signage. People do that! Try this, go to Cluff Rd at 6:45am, pack a lunch, lots of water and sun screen, stand there till 5pm, you’d be amazed”

“Thumbs up to the board of selectman. You

have a big task in choosing our new management. Please take it seriously. Most of the failed mangers were probably because of the harassment of one certain selectman. You know who you are!

about getting a report he said they don’t do that, and when I then muttered something about my tax dollars at work he told me to go back in my house or I’d be in trouble. Unbelievable!”

“Thumbs up to Salem High and all of the opportunities that it provides to our students. There are great clubs and activities and the curriculum is fantastic.
