This week on the Feed Store (Thursday, March 20 at 10am and Sunday March 23 at noon CT), I will be recounting in great detail the life and times of one of the greatest men I ever knew during my youth in Fairfield.
I am speaking of the late and lamented Dick Conklin, the demon barber of Richland. Dick took over the barbershop in Richland in 1948 and held down the fort for more than forty years.
He was a real firecracker, a great storyteller and a good haircutter. I pay tribute to the man as only I can.
