CLOSED: With summer in its hottest month and area temperatures rising, Salem residents will not be able to go to the swimming pool at the park to cool off for the rest of the season. The Salem City Pool closed for the summer July 12 due to equipment failure, said Salem Mayor Gary Clayton. Clayton said a pump on the pool failed. "It's a major piece," he said. "By the time the pump is ordered and put back online it will be close to closing anyway," Clayton said. Clayton said the pool closes in early August in order for children to get ready for school. "We are sorry for any inconvenience that this may cause the citizens of Salem," said a spokeman. Photo/Price
