Rhonda Cool admits she was spoiled. Since meeting Terry F. Cool Sr. in 1989, he had been the only one to cut her hair. She just had her first haircut by someone else, and she said it's going to take some getting used to. "He always knew how I liked it," Rhonda said. Known as one of the foursome of longtime barbers at Razor's Edge Barber Shop - which now is in Fountainhead Plaza behind Olympia Candy Kitchen - Terry had quite a following of regular customers.

From my standpoint, this past winter season covering boys basketball was pretty doggone interesting.
