J. R. Robinson of "Superhair" hair salons works his wares on one in a long line of folks who waited patiently for one of a couple of dozen free haircuts donated by Robinson and Migael Schieder of "Suno Contemporary Hair Design" (both Tacoma bizs) today at the Nativity House on Commerce in Tacoma. The gesture was the brainchild of Anna Maria Garcia with the "Outreach" program of the Pierce County Health Department. Garcia used the opportunity to provide cutee's with informational literature and condoms to help fight AIDS.

Charles Carson, 19, (of Tacoma) a member of the Safe Streets Youth Initiative, laughs during his speech, as Governor Booth Gardner shares in the joke. The two were speakers at a press conference at Safe Streets Headquarters where the governor announced grants to communities fighting drugs. Carson, who used to be involved with drugs, said that now he helps young kids stay away from drugs. The laughter came when Carson said that he wants to do this work now, because in 5 or 6 years he'll be 25 and too old to relate to the young kids.
