Clearing the way

Salem City Hall maintenance worker Phyllis McKinley shovels the sidewalk to the front door of city hall before firing up a snow blower to clean the rest of the sidewalks Friday afternoon. Snow fell most of the day, making roads, parking lots and sidewalks treacherous for travel. The snow tapered off in the evening, but still forced the cancellation of some local events, including Salem High School’s basketball homecoming game against Minerva. The game is postponed until Feb. 2. (Salem News photo by Mary Ann Greier)
