This is the 3rd weekend in a row with loud explosions. Around 10-PM Friday Nov. 23, walking our dogs, my sister and I heard 3 loud explosions towards North street to Peabody direction but were not as loud as the last two weekend explosions, then moments later there were fire trucks and police sirens rushing by. Does anyone know what happened?

Four wallets stolen, Child molesters in the area, and you headline with a ticket? A ticket, I may add that was given in a parking lot near the Peabody Essex Museum The PEM has nothing to do with the story and the weak reporting (why not list every ticket the Salem Police issue) makes me feel the Patch has an agenda other than the real news.

Drat! The SEN didn't have the location of the attack on the poodle, either. Thought for sure the Patch would have that. Anyone? I guess it's always good to be cautious around unknown dogs, but especially if it happens in one's own 'hood. Of course, the breed of the larger dog is of interest, also, just so people don't assume...
