      One again, Salem's square will be filled with the sights and sounds of classic, custom and modern cars, trucks and motorcycles. The Waters of Salem is presenting the Second Annual Shop with a Cop Car, Truck and Motorcycle Show on Saturday, October 3. The show will last from Noon to 6 p.m. Registration will be from Noon to 2 p.m., with judging beginning promptly at 1 p.m. The awards ceremony will take place from 5:15 to 6 p.m.
    Last year was the first year for this show, devised and coordinated by Christine Motsinger of The Waters of Salem. Last year's show had 94 registered participants and over 150 spectators were in attendance. Through registrations, donations, raffle ticket sales and everyone who supported the event, $1,999 was raised for the Shop with a Cop Program, which helps children in need receive presents for Christmas. This year's event will feature new processes to improve the show and help the event run smoother. All participants after registering will receive a “Ready to Judge” paper to be placed in their windshield to inform the judges of their car being ready to judge. This process will allow a quicker and more effective judging experience. In addition, judges scores will be received periodically throughout the day, and then entered into a computer spreadsheet to automatically tally the scores, allowing trophies to be awarded according to schedule. Trophies this year will include the Best Top 20, 5 specified trophies for motorcycles, Police Pick, Crowd Pleaser, Mayor's Choice, Sponsor's Favorite, Firehouse Favorite, and new this year will be the special Kid's Choice trophy, where kids will receive “Official Judge” stickers and be able to vote for their favorite. In total, over 30 trophies will be handed out.
