Clearing Roads & Filling Stomachs
Street & Maintenance Department Director Mike Tyler, Chick-fil-A’s Vanessa Miles and Sanitation Superintendent John Wade
  Nothing goes with snow removal quite like a hot chicken sandwich. The City of Salem once again did an amazing job of keeping Salem’s streets plowed and schools open during the snow and ice storms this winter and no one appreciated that more than the folks at Chick-fil-A.
  The West Main Street eatery said thanks to the men and women at the Street and Maintenance Department, the Water Department and our school bus drivers by providing them with on-site lunches. Owner Vanessa Miles hand delivered hot sandwiches, chips and cookies and offered a special thank you for their outstanding snow removal efforts.
She applauded their work and told them how vital their efforts are when it comes to keeping the economy moving in the city.

Magnificent Salem Seven
Salem High School has sent its share of student-athletes into the college ranks in a variety of sports since it opened for business in 1979, but the 2014 football season created something very special.
An unprecedented seven different players from the 2014 State runner-up Salem Spartans football team signed scholarship paperwork in February.
Coleman Fox and Zach Hoyt signed with the Virginia Tech Hokies, while four players – Tyler Fedison, Isaiah Parker, Austin Coulling and Cody Peregoy inked scholarships to play at VMI. Kyle Reighard, the final member of the largest group
of football signees since Andrew Lewis was a high school, signed with Charleston Southern.
The 2014 Spartans featured 20 seniors who helped win 14 straight games before falling to Lake Taylor in the 4A title game.
