These items didn’t make the cut this morning. But they are none the less details of daily life that will look large in the lens of the future.
Politics meets poultry. And the two are going to get to know one another well in coming years as more people struggle to feed families. The Salem City Council has voted 7-1 to schedule a public hearing on a proposed ordinance that would allow residents to keep up to three hens, but no roosters, in back yards.
