  • Reliving memories on Groundhog Hill

    I come to the garden alone,
    While the dew is still on the roses,
    And the voice I hear, Falling on my ear,
    The Son of God discloses.
    And He walks with me, and He talks with me,
    And He tells me I am his own;
    And the joy we share as we tarry there
    None other has ever known.
    – In The Garden by C. Austin Miles (from The Broadman Hymnal)

    Gardening is Alone Time.

  • Tino's offers the 'cutting edge'

    Master Barber Tino Cobb has opened a barbershop on Lincoln Square. The historic building has held Keith’s Barbershop, Edlin’s Barbershop and Bill Seymour’s Barbershop in the past.

    “I was born and raised here and I’ve always seen this building as a barbershop,” Cobb said.
    Cobb bought the shop in February from the former owner, Robby Keith, who has been battling cancer.

    Cobb has maintained much of the historic look of the shop and is continuing traditional barber services – including an old-fashioned razor shave.
