Digging in

Salem water department worker Brian Hall breaks up South Lincoln Avenue to get to a waterline break on Sunday. The break was reported at 2:18 p.m. in the 1200 block of the street and both police and firefighters responded before the water crew – Hall, Mike Blythe and Dean Stokes – was called to handle the problem. The street department was also contacted to treat the area where the water was flowing down and across the street since it could ice up. (Salem News photo by Patti Schaeffer)
