Garage Sale Causes Uproar


A Salem woman's fight against cancer and the City is getting national attention. Jan Cline has bone cancer and was holding garage sales to pay for her mortgage and medical bills. Her niece, Summer Eikenbaum says Cox didn't know there was a City law forbidding more than 3 sales a year. "And after a neighbor complained a compliance officer came to her door and said shut it down or face jail time."  Eikenbaum says her aunt apologized for not knowing about the 3 garage sale law, and explained that she was dying of cancer and needed the money. But was told by the compliance officer that there was no exception to the rule. The City of Salem has agreed to allow her, along with the Chamber of Commerce, to have a large one-time rummage sale under its direction to sell off all of her personal items.
