Bill Divelbiss, member of the Mason-Dixon Chorus, one of the groups that performed, said the concert has been held for about six years.

WAYNESBORO, Pa. -- Alex Ivan Litoshik describes downtown as "the face" of a community. It is perhaps appropriate, then, that Litoshik is providing services to beautify the faces of the men living and working in the community. Litoshik recently opened a barber shop at 110 W. Main St., providing cuts, shaves, facials, facial massages and steam towel treatments. He's trying to hearken back to an era when barbershops were a town staple, where men gathered for socializing and exceptional service.

andrear@herald-mail.com Lisa Carpegna's old-fashioned business philosophy is reflected in a sign at her Hagerstown shop: "Shave and a Haircut 2 Bits. " Although customers at her Kutter's Barber Shop will pay a little more than two bits for a cut, they'll likely feel as if they stepped back in time when they walk past the striped barber pole and into the cozy shop that's attached to the Carpegnas' home next to City Park. Two barber's chairs loom large upon a checkerboard floor in front of a mirrored wall.

The replicas of Marty's Barber Shop at 1372 Maugansville Road are the 10th in an annual series, with sales benefiting the Maugansville Historic Society. The Historic Society hopes to use the money to buy - or have donated - a house where it can display historic artifacts, Daisy Fitz, a society board member, said.

HAGERSTOWN -- Some of their customers come in for the blueberry lollipops, others for the conversation and a friendly ribbing. The main reason most people walk through the door of Razor's Edge Barber Shop, though, is for a trim by a barber they consider a friend. This spring marks 40 years since owner Sam Rock opened his doors near Longmeadow Shopping Center in 1969. He even had the same landlord all those years, until recently. "We have been able to maintain this particular location because of fair rent and being able to work together with the landlord whatever the situation," Rock said of his former landlord, Turner Management Co. Rock, 71, of State Line, Pa., said he worked in the area years ago, moved to Los Angeles, then came back and saw a business opportunity.

Ask most teens about "barbershop" and they'd probably tell you it's a place to get your hair cut. But for Travis Ware, it's a style of four-part harmoney that has a ton of musical possibilities. Ware, a 17-year-old senior at Williamsport High School, said barbershop is one of his favorties musical styles because "it's amazing the sound that you can produce. " But it's not the only kind of music he said he likes. As a member of Williamsport's "Sophisticats" for four years, he's learned show tunes and a whole lot more.
