Bob Goodwin
A "new" service has been added recently at one of the local beauty salons - old fashioned haircuts for guys!

That's right. Ivy Sivinski, owner of the Headlines Hair and Nail Salon in downtown Cherokee, talked her grandfather, veteran barber Bob Goodwin, into coming out of his nine-year retirement, and the veteran of 30-plus years of barbering has been cutting hair at his granddaughter's shop from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. three days a week - Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.

Goodwin, 73, is the father of Ivy's mother, Nancy Sivinski, and he began cutting hair after his years in the military service.

He barbered in Jack Blair's Shop, which many may remember was located next to the American Theater on East Main Street in Cherokee, for several years, and "retired" from the profession - or so he thought - in 2001.
