Article in the Paper Leads to a New ‘Do

I love local community papers. They have a myriad of information. So thank you for letting us know that Timothie Hill Hairdressing & Spa had moved. Being new this summer to Boyle Street I was unaware of this business, so I phoned to get prices, etc. Timothie gave me all the info I needed and of course asked how I found out about his salon. After I informed him about the story in the Boyle McCauley News, he was pleasantly surprised. I told him the paper is online so he could read it. Long story made short, I offered to take two copies of the paper when I had a chance, so he could have a hard copy. When I was in the area, I stopped in. I said I needed a trim and decided it was time for a change. I am so happy. He did an awesome job. Even did a little video to put on his Instagram. He’s not in Boyle Street but is still a local entrepreneur.

*Editor’s Note: You are very welcome. We’re glad we were able to help a local entrepreneur and connect people with a business to help them look and feel their best. Totally a win-win situation all around._

  • Outdoor Way of the Cross – Due to the wet, cold weather on Good Friday, April 14, attendance was down at the annual Outdoor Way of the Cross from about 660 (in recent years) to only 300 at the peak. This year’s theme was “The cry of the Earth and the cry of the poor are one” based on Pope Francis’s letter laudato si that notes that poor people pay the greatest price for our disregard of taking care of the environment. We walked for the first time west of 101 Street in the shadow of Rogers Place. Text: Jim Gurnett Photo: Michael Hoyt
