Gregory Burnett has put a sign in the front yard of his Canton shop that reads “Times are hard” and “Pay what you can pay for a cut.”
The Repository newspaper reported that Mr. Burnett has accepted as little as $5 for haircuts normally priced at $12.
He is trying to appeal to customers such as Mike Cheek, whose visits used to be every few weeks but are now separated by months. Mr. Cheek says he sometimes lets his son or other relatives cut his hair these days, or tries to “mess with it” himself.
Mr. Burnett says his name-your-price deal helps both him and the community.
Woman admits role at filthy abortion clinic
PHILADELPHIA — A woman who had no medical training but worked at what authorities describe as a filthy Philadelphia abortion clinic that performed illegal late-term abortions has pleaded guilty to conspiracy and other charges.
Tina Baldwin will testify against Dr. Kermit Gosnell, the clinic owner, who is charged with the murders of one patient and seven viable babies.
The Philadelphia Inquirer reported that Baldwin pleaded guilty Monday to participating in a corrupt organization, conspiracy and corruption of a minor.
Authorities say Baldwin’s teenage daughter assisted her in providing drugs to women undergoing abortions even though neither had any medical training.
Prosecutors have called the clinic a “house of horrors” where babies were born alive and were killed with scissors.
Five of nine other people charged in the case have pleaded guilty. Dr. Gosnell has denied any wrongdoing.
