Names & Faces: Whitson's Barber Shop

John Whitson's uncle Gary opened Whitson's Barber Shop way back in 1970 - that's 50 years of continual operation as of next May - and it has been a family affair ever since. When Gary had to leave the shop in 2000, John stepped in as proprietor and Master Barber (he had been working in the shop since 1997), and promptly added his brother-in-law Arnold Lane to the staff the following year. The two have quite a customer base and a healthy rapport, and any time you feel like stopping in and talking sports, they'll be happy to oblige.
