Payette Valley Sentinel and Red Apple News 1960’s

fitz_084eRELIABLE SOURCES have informed the Sentinel/Banner that Counsil and Sullivan have united forces to buy the old Gorton Bldg.

Secretly, Mr. Sullivan has been allowing “his curly locks” to grow for an extra-long time, according to our informer, Chet Counsil. This was done to satisfy a secret ambition. Mr. Sullivan’s desire was to be the very first customer to the New Plymouth Barber Shop, newly remodeled section in the north of the newly purchased building. Sure enough, when Mr. Dud Wininger opened his shop early Tuesday morning, Mr.. Sullivan was there to satisfy that secret ambition.

The reason for letting the hair grow longer? To get more for his money? No. Our sources seem to think that Mr. Sullivan could not slow down long to enough to get a hair cut, unless it started growing over his eyes and ears. In jest, it was thought that the longer the hair, the greater the incentive to get that haircut, first thing Tuesday morning.
