THE BLUFFTON NEWS, BLUFFTON, OHIO
Kent State university warns that
mushrooms are dynamite unless care
is used to determine the poison ones
from the safe varieties. Dr. Her
rick, biologist and mushroom expert,
criticized recent magazine articles on
selection of safe mushrooms. Most
of the articles, he said emphasize
the simplicity rather than the “over
whelming danger” of picking your
own mushrooms. He says there is
no reason why people cannot enjoy
mushrooms safely “if they just don’t
follow the advice of too many pseu
do-experts” on their selection.
The boys at Koontz’s filling sta
tion at College and Main received
this week two shirts together with
honorable mention in the Sinclair
trade journal as an award for spick
and span restrooms and general neat
ness of their station. The award
followed the report of a company in
spector, traveling incognito and pos
ing as a passing motorist who made
the rounds of Sinclair stations
Northwestern Ohio. Th

The barbershop is a place to get
your hair cut. But it wasn’t always
that way—shaving used to be equal
ly important. Back around the turn
of the century customers, for the
most part were shaved once a week
—usually on Saturday—and old
timers still recall rows of gleaming
white mugs, belonging to the shop’s
regular trade with the patron’s
name in shining gilt letters and re
served for his individual use. Tine
McGriff’s shop had a lot of them
and so did Soapy Swerleins—not to
mention a half-dozen others.
But there's been a lot of water go
under the bridge since that time.
Shaves, which fifty years ago pro
vided a big volume of business have
all but dropped out of the picture
since the coming of the safety razor.
One Bluffton barber told us the
other day that he shaves an average
of one or two customers a week.
On the other hand, increase in
haircuts has taken up the slack and
barbers are busy as ever. Instead
of the oldtimer who let his hair grow
all winter, men nowadays have hair
cuts regularly and some have stand
ing appointments for a trim at stat
ed intervals with their barber.

It’s one of Bluffton’s oldest thoro
fares, used daily by many pedes
trians, but it really isn’t a street—
it has no name, nor does it appear
on any map of the town—in fact,
officially it doesn’t exist. We’re re
ferring to the pathway through the
Presbyterian chufch yard which suc
cessive generations have used as a
convenient short-cut between Cherry
and North Main streets, bypassing
the longer distance to the intersec
tion on the square. Being on private
property the path cannot have the
status of a public street and for
that reason municipal funds may not
be used in its maintenance. Upkeep
has been provided by the church and
successive applications of fine crush
ed stone over a period of years have
resulted in a hard water-resistant
surface generally satisfactory in all
kinds of weather.
