Vogler It was late in the afternoon Wednesday when Cindy Salerno decided to treat her two young children to a trip to the playground after they were cooped up in the house for several hours. “I took them here for 10 to 15 minutes just so they could do something and get out of the house,” Salerno said as she sat in her car, which was parked in the parking lot at Veterans Memorial Elementary School. “I waited until after 3 so that it could cool down.

    Malden Summer Memories

    By Virginia Ruane   Spring season is almost over, and it makes me a little sad, but I do love a summer when it comes.
