A Hero is Home
Sister Mary Griffin and Sister Antoinetta Sinibald are very pleased to be chatting with Arthur Barnes Youth and Adult Choirs perform “Tere’s a Song”
by Robyn Hatch The First Congregational Church of Salem recently held an outstanding free spring concert entitled “Music with a Mission.” All proceeds of the concert went to the Greater Salem Community Action’s Food Pantry. The church’s Senior Choir performed under the guidance of Music Director Alice Johnson-Hannon. Joining them was the newly organized church band, featuring a saxophone trio. This program was highlighted by
the youth choir, directed by Bridget Detollenaere. There were also special vocal solos and duets to round out the program. After the concert, all were welcome to meet the performers and enjoy refreshments. This was a concert not to be missed. The First Congregational Church, United Church of Christ, is located at 15 Lawrence Road in Salem and is wheelchair-accessible.
submitted Warde Health Center Arthur Barnes of Salem was severely injured in Afghanistan in 2010. He endured and overcame a long, arduous recovery, surpassing the goals and expectations of his many physicians and therapists. Some would say this is miraculous. On May 18, Arthur came to the Warde Health Center to meet and thank some of the Sisters of Mercy, residents, and staff who have continued to pray every day for his health and recovery. Arthur Barnes’ mother, Janice, is an employee of Warde Health Center.

Non-Compliant Sex Offender Arrested for Second Time in Salem
by Andrea Ganley-Dannewitz Police in Salem began an investigation into a resident who repeatedly in the past has tried to evade registering as a sex offender. Information was received to the Salem Police Department’s Detectives Division that Arthur Hackett, 46, of Salem had been released from jail and was apparently living in Salem, but had not registered with the state as required for a sex crime conviction against him. Detective Steven Woidyla began investigating
Hackett within the past few weeks. Detective Woidyla was able to confirm that Hackett had been released from jail in October 2010, a sentence he served for not registering as a sex offender as is required by law and, according to State Police, Hackett had not registered anywhere in the state of New Hampshire. It was also confirmed through the police investigation that Hackett was living at his previous residence on Shadow Lake Road in Salem. Detective Woidyla with the assistance of the Salem Police Department’s Patrol Division began conducting surveillance on Hackett to confirm that he was in fact living on Shadow Lake Road. On Wednesday, May 18, Detective Woidyla and several patrol officers located Hackett driving on Millville Street. Hackett was pulled over by police and was found to be operating with a
suspended driver’s license. Police in Salem held an active arrest warrant for his arrest on felony charges of failure to comply with the state’s sex offender registry. He was arrested on Millville Street without incident and charged with both the felony
warrant and operating a motor vehicle after revocation. He is currently being held at the Rockingham County Jail in Brentwood on $25,000 cash bail. Hackett was convicted in Massachusetts in the mid 1980s for the forcible rape of a young woman in Middlesex County. He has repeatedly failed to register as a convicted sex offender in both Massachusetts and New Hampshire. Last year, Salem police arrested Hackett after a domestic incident with his girlfriend. At that time he was found to have not complied with the sex offender registry, a requirement in all 50 states. Prior to his arrest last year in Salem, he was also arrested by both Windham and Derry police for failure to comply with the sex offender registry. Previous to those arrests, he had an active warrant out of Massachusetts for also failing to register with the Lawrence, MA Police Department. In Salem, the detectives division of the Salem
Police Department handles the registration and monitoring of all registered sex offenders in town. Each offender is required to register twice a year, as well as be subject to unannounced home visits. Offenders must also notify police of any change of address, employment, or schooling.
